John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
The book of Revelation is a book of Revelation. And as described by John
Revelation 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John.
Couple of things should be learned here.
1. Christians are not servants of Christ. They are the ones Jesus talked of here.
2. Jesus is not God.
Matthew 25:5 For many shall come in my name, saying I am Christ (Christian) and shall deceive many.
Like with many things in the Bible a lot of the answers are starring at you right in the face.
They’re many Christians and the like, and Few there be that find the way. Try and put two and two together. You seek after somehting to find it. Religion is GIVEN to people by people. Not by God.
Now the Servants are the ones that follow and APPLY Jesus teachings. The Doers of the word. So the book of Revelations is about what must shortly come to pass for the THEM and THEM only.
However as stated.
Revelation 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him (Who are long dead, so he must be talking about their spirits): and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
This doesn’t mean it’s going to be all at once, a mass event, like the false doctrine of Rapture teaches (more like 1 by 1), but it does mean that God’s promise will be fulfilled, and that EVERYONE in time will see the Kingdom, and ALL at some future time will overcome this world, and indeed understand this book of Revelation.
Luke 15: 10 Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.
We will all get there at some point. The beginning of the End has recently just started regardless.
Revelation 1.8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
What is Eternal? Spirit. So it’s the beginning. And as such the Book of Revelation talks of the beginning, What is? Spirit. So was then, so it is now. Spirit. And what is to come? Spirit.
The book of Revelation talks of the process of the spirits down here on the Earth, and it mentions a few events in Heaven also. But it is not an exact prophecy about the future of the Earth, though people think it is, hence why the religious especially are sitting around doing nothing and just obsessing over Earthly events, hoping that some major war will break out, and then by some magic hoping that they’ll be saved, all the while they crave blood and death, and care not for the innocent.
If that was the case what would be the point of Jesus coming here in the first place to teach us about The Father and Righteousness, and this world, and sin, and the causes of it?
It is however a Prophecy about the future of the spirits (minds) in bodies, inhabiting this Earth.
The flesh profits nothing, so there’s real no need to talk or focus on it.
John 4:23-24 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Why because the flesh profits nothing. The Kingdom of Heaven has always been at hand, and “now is” always.
Revelation 7:1-14 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they
And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
The great tribulation is the individual battle (Also the Battle of Armageddon) we must ALL face at some point to overcome the heart(soul) within us, the wicked one’s child. We do that and endure, and we overcome the world.
We must do battle with the wicked one and his child (soul), resisting its wiles and temptations. It is a battle of resisting a siege attack, not one of attack itself. Righteousness is what defends our fortress. While we wear Armour of God righteousness. A battle like never seen on the Earth before, nor ever will be. Why is that, because it is a spiritual battle, not an Earthly one. They will always be wars here, because this is Satan’s world, and he is a God of this world.
When we enter into this battle, Satan comes down, because he knows that his time is short, that his rule over us is short, so he comes down with great wrath. But fear not.
1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
The Father’s Righteousness makes us clean again, our spirits (mind) become pure again, because we have done as Jesus instructed, and become doers of his word. Blood doesn’t make robes white do they now. So by that you should know this book isn’t to be read with an Earthly mentality. It is an error people make and will continue to do so.
Revelation 7:15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
The Father’s temple, the throne of God is the mind (spirit). It is the Holy Place. Remember the saying “I and the Father are one”
Jesus was killed on the cross, he was pierced but did live because he was resurrected (Raised up as an imperishable spirit). He endured and overcame this world, by the will of the Father.
We are also raised up also by the will of the Father but, we have to use Jesus’s example here in the flesh as a way to show us. aka By the blood of the Lamb. Why are we in this era and others passed waiting for the second coming?
Jesus lived 33 years and 3 months. That was his number as the son of man on this Earth. Christians await the second coming in the flesh. Does he need to double that number as a man? When as a spirit who could appear when ever he wills, as he did to his disciples quite a few times, and to Saul (Paul) also. He can teleport in and out of this universe at will. In spirit we’re not limited by flesh and bones.
Luke 24:39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
Those awaiting that second coming worship the beast and give power to the beast (Religious systems on this Earth, namely Catholic/Christianity, the ones who directly corrupt the name of Jesus and what he taught.). And they that worship the image of the beast. Of a man on a cross who was pierced by a spear/sword and did live, Jesus did live, as a spirit alive forever more.
How many have been killed who did not worship this image, or follow the Church of this Earth in times past, how many have been persecuted, how many Saints and Prophets have been killed, how many have used it to justify slavery and war? To this day it still happens.
One of the heads of the beast has a deadly wound that was healed. Jesus spoke in the 1st few chapters of Revelation about the 7 churches corrupting his teachings. Jesus was wounded unto death, but was healed and raised up as a spirit. Yet he is used as a cornerstone of the First beast, to sow corruption into the minds of mankind, all over this Earth with doctrine, false doctrine at that, deceiving all of mankind, causing them to worship his image.
The “Mark” of his name is false doctrine. It is about those awaiting the second coming of Jesus. Whether in thought (Forehead) or in Hand (Scripture).
Revelation 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.
We have to overcome, the false doctrine of the Churches/Religion as mentioned in the first few chapters of Revelation, and instead turn within to the Father and spread his Revelations (Word of God’s truth), The Harps meaning the Gospel of the Kingdom that he has given us to understand and preach.
Religion has held our minds captive for long enough with its mark, and victory over them, with the Father’s help is at hand. We must stop worshipping the image of torture and death which is the cross, with a dead man on it, the image of the beast, and we must stop waiting for the second coming of a man (666), which is Jesus, and anti what Jesus taught..
He’s been here once in the flesh he doesn’t need to come again. As he said. It is finished.
Jesus is in spirit now, alive forever more he said, and he said he’ll greet us when we overcome this world. In spirit (The flesh profits nothing), for he has gone to prepare a place for us, for in the Father’s kingdom they’re many mansions.
I’ve already mentioned Mystery, Babylon the Great elsewhere. As said it is the soul in a person, the heart, we identify with. Below is what happens when we overcome it and are raised up on our last day here.
Revelation 18:8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
Fire meaning truth and righteousness of the Father and Jesus teachings. Since without them we cannot overcome. Finally the soul is fully cleaved from our spirit, and we are free and made fit again for Heaven, for the Father has remember her iniquities, and has helped us, by way of remembrance. The soul will be want our minds attention, be we have starved it. aka Famine.
You can only buy and sell if you have the Mark (false belief, let’s just call it unrighteousness, being a servant of sin), and buying and selling means to receive the plagues of the soul(Heart), and in turn sell them to others, meaning to commit sin. In short, reaping (buying) and selling (sowing) from your heart (soul) Satan’s child within us.
Revelation 18:11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
Because we have been made pure, righteous, and have overcome
Revelation 18:11 And the fruits that thy soul(heart) lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
No longer do we have the mark, so we no longer buy and sell, reap and sow unrighteousness. For we have come out of her.
Revelation 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
We have learned about the Soul(Heart, Subconscious) and with the Father’s righteousness and Revelation, and are slowly come out of her (soul) and no longer reap the rewards of sin, because we sin no longer, and thus not receive her plagues which hold our mind(spirit) captive. We slowly overcome the souls influence over us.,
Revelation 18:20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
Yes as each and every one of us overcomes this world with the Father help, we are avenged, and again all the Angels rejoice over one sinner that overcomes this evil world.
