Theology Proper in the Book of Revelation

Theology proper is displayed in Revelation mostly with regard to God’s sovereignty. God’s sovereignty is displayed most significantly in three ways:
1. The use of the word “throne,” which appears 34 times in the Revelation
2. The use of the divine passive edothe (“it was given”) which is used eighteen times, mostly in the four horsemen passage (ch. 6) and the beast passage (ch. 13)
3. The title “the Almighty” is also used often of God which emphasizes his sovereign control over all.
