  1. apocalypse

    Revelation (Latin re, back, and velum, veil), literally an unveiling, is the act or process of making known what was before secret or hidden, or what may still be future. Apocalypse (Greek apo, from, and kalypto, cover), literally an uncovering, comes into English as the name of the closing book of the Bible. The Apocalypse unveils the future, as if to the very gaze of the seer; the whole gospel is a disclosure of the mercy of God; the character of Christ is a manifestation of the divine holiness and love; all Scripture is a revelation of the divine will. Or we might say that nature is a manifestation of the divine character and will, of which Scripture is the fuller and more express revelation.

    disclosure, manifestation, revelation

    cloud, cloudiness, concealment, hiding, mystery, obscuration, shrouding, veiling

How to use apocalypse in a sentence?

  1. Glenn Stutzky:

    The apocalypse, I think, both reveals our humanity and our inhumanity, it doesn’t get more basic or fundamental than that.

  2. Geoffrey Smith:

    To say that we were excited once we realized what we’d found is an understatement, we never suspected that Greek fragments of the First Apocalypse of James survived from antiquity. But there they were, right in front of us.

  3. Andrew Lincoln:

    [But] there’s an inspirational sort of strength and endurance and quality of tenacity that he possesses, i’m much more indecisive and a people-pleaser than someone who’s willing to step into the firing line. But I’ve learned from this guy. He has qualities that I would hope to emulate if [stuff] ever hit the fan. But I’d like to think I’ve done it on screen, maybe I could be a zombie-killer in real life if the apocalypse hit. But then, I’d obviously die a horrible, quick death in reality.

  4. Roman Coppola:

    Maybe 40 years ago people might not have appreciated a film like 'Apocalypse Now,' which was kind of unusual to say the least, if you're looking as an artist for some type of assurance that what you are doing is OK or going in the right direction then I think you have to wait for the judgment of time before you know.

  5. Chick Macal:
