Revelation Study

  1. REVELATION 1



    Rev 1:1-20 The Revelation of Jesus Christ =The discloser of Jesus Christ

    Which God gave unto Him
    Notice how the above is phrased. This is the reveling of the things of Jesus Christ; things which prior to this were not yet revealed to THEM.
    To show unto His servants
    Things which must shortly come to pass

    John was there to receive these revelation of Jesus Christ and to pass that on to his companions in that time period. Yet many today take was written for THEM, and apply them to today.

    And He sent and signified it
    By His angel unto His servant John
    Who bore record of the word of God
    And of the testimony of Jesus Christ


    And of all things that He saw
    Who did John bare record to? To His fellow companions in Christ Jesus at that time. Obviously He could not have done that to peoples of today at that time.

    Blessed is he that reads
    And they that hear the words of this prophecy
    And keep those things which are written therein


    For the time is at hand (is now)

    Here again is seen that the time was for the time in which John lived, not now.

    John to the seven churches
    Which are in Asia

    Here it is clearly seen that John's message was for the seven churches and was addressed to everyone at every time period.

    Grace be unto you
    And peace
    From Him

    Which is
    And which was
    And which is to come

    And from the seven Spirits which are before His throne
    And from Jesus Christ


    Who is the faithful witness
    And the first begotten of the dead
    And the prince of the kings of the earth

    Notice that here it is first stated that the message is from Him which is, which was, and which is to come. Then, and from Jesus Christ.Rewriting we have: From Elohim, which is, was, and is to come; and from His Christ Jesus.

    Unto Him that loved us
    And washed us from our sins
    In His own blood

    Him, Jesus Christ.

    And has made us kings
    And priests
    Unto God and His Father

    The saints of today are not priests as were those chosen by Jesus Christ when He was on the Earth, in the earth of Judeah.

    1Co_4:8 Now you are full, now you are rich, you have reigned as kings without us: and I would to God you did reign, that we also might reign with you.

    To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever
    Amen

    Behold
    He comes with clouds
    And every eye shall see Him

    Act_1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.

    Act_1:11 Which also said, You men of Galilee, why stand you gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as you have seen Him go into heaven.

    Here again the scripture point to the Jews and not to the entire world as most try to make them point to.The same ones that saw Him taken up were to see Him return.

    And they also which pierced Him
    And all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him
    Even so Amen

    I am Alpha and Omega
    The beginning and the ending

    Says the Lord



    Which is
    And which was
    And which is to come
    The Almighty

    I John
    Who also am your brother
    And companion in tribulation

    And in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ

    Here is another subject pointing to the time concerned in Revelation. John and His companions in Jesus Christ. Who were John's companions? The other disciples of Jesus Christ which were at that time.

    Was in the isle that is called Patmos

    For the word of God
    And for the testimony of Jesus Christ


    I was in the Spirit
    On the Lord's day

    And heard behind Me a great voice
    As of a trumpet
    Saying

    I am Alpha and Omega
    The first and the last

    And what you see
    Write in a book

    And send it unto the seven churches
    Which are in Asia

    Who was He to send this writing to? This then tells us who the writing was being addressed to, the seven churches in Asia. See how taking things out of place causes so many problems in understanding the scriptures? Again, the number seven deals with spiritual perfection. These seven churches were being perfected in that time period. The message was directed to them and not for everyone everywhere

    1- Unto Ephesus Meanings: Desirable
    2- And unto Smyrna Myrrh
    3- And unto Pergamos height, elevation
    4- And unto Thyatira a perfume, sacrifice of labor
    5- And unto Sardis prince of joy
    6- And unto Philadelphia love of a brother
    7- And unto Laodicea just people

    And I turned to see the voice that spoke with me
    And being turned I saw seven golden candlesticks The seven Spirits of God

    And in the midst of the seven candlesticks
    One like unto the Son of man

    Clothed with a garment down to the foot
    And girt about the paps with a golden girdle

    His head
    And His hairs
    Were white like wool
    As white as snow

    And His eyes were as a flame of fire
    And His feet like unto fine brass
    As if they burned in a furnace

    And His voice
    As the sound of many waters (very loud)

    And He had in His right hand seven stars NOTE: Right hand, place of honor.
    And out of His mouth went a sharp two edged sword The word of God
    And His countenance was as the sun shining in His strength Spiritual purity

    Psa 149:6-9 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth
    And a two edged sword in their hand
    To execute vengeance upon the heathen
    And punishments upon the people
    To bind their kings with chains
    And their nobles with fetters of iron
    To execute upon them the judgment written
    This honor have all his saints


    Praise you the LORD

    Heb_4:12 For the word of God is quick
    And powerful
    And sharper than any two edged sword


    Piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit
    And of the joints and marrow
    And is a discerner of the thoughts
    And intents of the heart

    And when I saw Him
    I fell at His feet as dead

    And He laid His right hand upon me
    Saying unto me
    Fear not

    I am the first and the last (Alpha and Omega)
    I am He that lives
    And was dead


    And behold
    I am alive for evermore
    The Amen (truth)


    And have the keys of hell and of death
    The keys, the control over the grave and death


    Write the things
    Which you have seen
    And the things which are
    And the things which shall be hereafter


    The mystery of the seven stars
    Which you saw in My right hand
    And the seven golden candlesticks


    Is The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches
    And the seven candlesticks which you saw

    Are the seven churches

    Rev_11:4 These are the two olive trees
    And the two candlesticks
    Standing before the God of the earth

    2Co 4:3-4 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

    THE SEVEN SPIRITS

    Mat_12:28 But if I cast out devils
    By The Spirit of God (1)
    Then the kingdom of God is come unto you

    You who? The Jews who accepted Him.

    Luke_4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me
    Because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor
    He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted

    And recovering of sight to the blind
    To set at liberty them that are bruised

    But when the Comforter is come
    Whom I will send unto you from the Father

    Eph_1:13 In whom you also trusted, after that you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that youelieved, you were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise

    Heb_10:29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose you, shall he be thought worthy, who has trodden under foot the Son of God, and has counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace (6)?

    Eph_1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him:

    Rev 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ

    And in the midst of the seven candlesticks

    One like unto the Son of man

    Rev 4:6-9
    And before the throne
    There was a sea of glass like unto crystal

    And in the midst of the throne
    And round about the throne
    Were four beasts full of eyes before and behind

    And the first beast was like a lion
    And the second beast like a calf
    And the third beast had a face as a man
    And the fourth beast was like a flying eagle

    And the four beasts had each of them six wings about
