What is the book of Revelation all about ?
« on: July 19, 2009, 01:58:50 PM »
Hi friends,

The book of Revelation is in fact, the Revelation of Jesus Christ. It is as textually documented, a book of prophecy, which is not all apocalyptic by any means. In which the words of Jesus were: "Write, therefore what you have seen, what is now and what will take place later," according to Rev.1:19.

Following the introductory preface for the book in Rev.1, the first part pertains to the one body of Christ, divided into seven church characteristics over the entire church age, as documented in Rev.2 and 3.

The second part consists of personages and conditions in heaven and the exclusive all time personage worthy and capable of opening the seven seal preview of the wrath of God, in the Lamb, Jesus Christ, recorded in Rev.4 through 6.

The third part begins with the seventh seal which contains the seven trumpet judgements, followed closely by the seven bowl/vial judgements of God. His wrath upon mankind as well as the earth itself, in fulfilling the prophecies in Dan.9:27; Mt.24; Mk. 13 and Lk.21. Together with His means of saving many people during the tribulation, through the 144,000 converted Israelite evangelists and the two witnesses. Recorded in Rev.7 through 16.

Within the above events, many personages are introduced, including the two beasts, one from the sea, the antichrist and the other from the earth, the false prophet. The ten nation confederation, the ten horns, they gather as allies to fight against God's people. The dragon, Satan, will give his throne, power and great authority o the beast out of the sea, the antichrist, in Rev.13.

The fourth part consists of the "mother of all prostitutes," the false religion that permeates the entire world, which the antichrist, false prophet and ten nation confederation completely destroy and set up a one world religion oriented to the worship of the antichrist himself who will claim to be God. The final world power as well as its ruler is identified as a restored Roman empire, as found in the European Union of today, and the antichrist, a person who was already dead and in the Abyss at the time Jesus gave the vision to John, in Rev.17:8 and 11.

The above is quickly followed with the destruction of the adulterous economic relationship of Babylon the Great, Jerusalem and Judea, has with all the nations of the earth, that will be destroyed in "one hour." Recorded in Rev.17 and 18.

The fifth part is the marriage of the Lamb [Jesus] to His Bride [The Church], and His second coming to the earth, with all His saints and angels from heaven, according to Rev.19 and Mt.24:31. The battle of Armageddon takes place and the antichrist, the false prophet are defeated and thrown into the lake of fire and the ten nation confederation is destroyed.

Satan is caught and thrown into the Abyss for 1,000 years and the first resurrection takes place of all the martyrs who will be saved during the tribulation, who will be blessed and made priests of God and of Christ and rule with Him during His 1,000 year reign, of world peace, here on the earth.

When Jesus 1,000 year reign on earth is over, Satan will be released from the Abyss, build another huge army by a renewal of his deceit and lies. He will bring them all up against God's people around Jerusalem, where God will throw Satan into the lake of fire forever, and destroy his army with fire and sulfur from heaven, as recorded in Rev.19 and 20.

The sixth part is the end of the age, beginning with the great white thrown judgement, when the thrones are set for the judges and the books will be opened of evidence pertaining to all those who will participate in the second resurrection of the Godless and the wicked. The seas will give up all their dead, and death and Hades will be thrown into the lake of fire. Meaning for one thing, there will be no more death after this juncture in history. All those whose names are not found in the book of life, will be thrown into the lake of fire, as recorded in Rev.20.

The present heaven and earth will be destroyed by fire, according to 2 Pet.3:7 and Rev.21:1.

The seventh part consists of God creating a new heaven and earth, and the description of the eternal kingdom of God and some of the conditions that will take place when that time comes, in the next age. Where all of us who belong to Christ will live with Almighty God and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ throughout all eternity, in love, peace and happiness, as found in Rev.21 and 22.

Blessings,

Quasar

Religious Lie: "God only paid for sins until the next time you sin."
Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
