Who is JESUS CHRIST
The Revelation of Jesus Christ is the real name of the last book of
the bible. The Author is the Lord Jesus Christ Himself (Rev.22:16).
These 22 chapters in all, are the last day events, also called Eschatology in
Theological terms. In the past, people have called it a sealed book, and it was
until 1844 when the prophecies of Daniel were unsealed to reveal the 'cartoon'
The very name 'Revelation' means that it is revealing and the Greek in which
the new testament (N.T.) was written, apocalypsis means revealing. Revelation or
the Apocalypse, is the only book in the Bible where God promises a special
John the writer, was banned to the isle of Patmos for the spirit of Prophecy
and was one of the last living disciples of Jesus. Historians tell us that they
tried to burn him alive in a coldrum of boiling oil, but God gave special
protection just like He did to the three young Hebrews in the book of Daniel.
Q.: When did John receive the Apocalypse- Revelation of Jesus Christ? A.: On
Christ's seventh day Sabbath, the true Lord's Day (Saturday) in 70 A.D. The only Lord's day
in the N.T. is that of Jesus (see Matth.12:8 and Mark 2:28). In the U.S.A. they have long
ago formed the Lord's day alliance, a powerful lobby group to promote the false
Lord's day (Sunday). Also the recent papal letter "Deis Domini" [day of
the Lord] quotes Genesis 2:2 and the Ten Commandments to sustain his unbiblical
day of the sun.
According to Eusebius, John was banished to Patmos by the Emperor Domitian
in AD 95, and released 18 months later under Nerva (HE III.18.1; 20.8-9).
The early historian Eusebius tells us that after Domitian's reign he was
succeeded by Nerva. Under him the Roman senate decreed that those unjustly
exiled could return to their homes and have their goods restored. It was then
that the Apostle John "returned from his banishment in Patmos, and took up his
abode at Ephesus, according to an ancient tradition of the Church."
(Ecclesiastical History, Eusebius, Chapter 20, p. 103) This would have been
around the year AD 96.
A very recent and silent change in the international new Calendar, Monday
instead of Sunday has been designated as the first day of the week, probably
because it is the first working day apart from weekend trading. This would make
Sunday now the seventh day of the week in place of Saturday. This not only
presents a problem for the Bible, but also for the international Community
because in some countries like Greece for instance, in which language the new
testament was written, they still designate Saturday as the seventh day Sabato in
their language and so do some other countries.
God says, the seventh day is the Sabbath, my holy day.
Since Revelation (Apocalypse) is a book for the last days, and since it
centres on Jesus
and his resurrection, one would expect to find some exciting comments in the
book in regard to the church custom of keeping Sunday as a holy day in
honour of the resurrection.
But, strangely, the day itself is not even mentioned. Stranger yet, though
the day is mentioned eight times in the other books of the new testament, in no
case is a command given to keep it holy. Since millions of sincere and loving
bible-believing Christians worship on Sunday, why is the Bible so strangely
silent on this subject, or is it???
Revelation (Apocalypse) says that it is prophecy and was written to the seven Churches
(1:3+4). If it had been for the seven literal churches in Asia Minor at that
particular time in history, it would not be a prophecy, but instead, it spans
the whole era of the history of Christianity. While this follows a sequence,
the rest of Revelation does not.
Traditional Methods of Interpretation
Pretorism. The pretorist method holds
that the book of Revelation is addressed to the seven churches of Asia only and
therefore does not contain any predictive prophecy. It was written by a
single man, Luis de Alcazar [1554-1613] to counter- act the protestant
Reformation. His idea was to deflect all biblical pointers of Anti-Christ
away from papal Rome to imperial Rome.
Futurism. The futuristic method was also
devised by a catholic priest in re-directing prophecy away from papal Rome into
a far distant future to an Anti-Christ yet to come in the last nick of time
before the Christ advent. Francisco Ribera [1537-1591], even though from
the same Jesuit priesthood as his colleague Alcazar and strongly contradicting
his method of interpretation, was far more successful with the Protestants.
All Reformers have rejected both these views and Protestantism resisted them for
over 400 years, there has now come a change.
Idealism. The idealist method argues
against any historical purpose of the symbols in Revelation. Rather, that
the book contains a description of the ongoing struggle between good and evil.
The major problem with idealism is that it, like pretorism, denies the prophetic
application of the book.
Historicism. The historical method holds
that the book of Revelation provides a symbolic presentation of the prophetic
outline of the future course of history from the apostolic times until the time
of the end. This method argues that Revelation is rooted in the book of
Daniel to help unlock its many symbols. As a safeguard, Revelation should
be approached with a presupposition that the scenes and actions portrayed there
are symbolic or figurative in nature, unless the context clearly indicates that
a literal meaning is intended.
Biblical scholars have long debated whether
Revelation is an apocalyptic work or prophecy. The book itself claims to
be a prophecy [1:3; 22;7, 18-19].
The science and art of the study of biblical text is called "hermeneutics."
The word simply means "interpretation". When hermeneutics is applied to
the analysis of biblical text, we call it 'exegesis" [Greek: to draw out].
Exegesis is the process of deriving meaning from biblical text by bridging the
gap between the world of the Bible at the time of the inspired author and the
reader of today.
We do not wish to bore our visitors and
readers with to many details and therefore only deal with the most important
verses that have specific meanings for our time. Daniel the prophet in the
Old Testament told us that when in these last days knowledge and travel would
increase, his prophetic book would be unsealed. As a result, we can now decipher
the last book of the Bible called Revelation or Apocalypse.
Revelation 2:15: "So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the
Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate."
Nicolaitane comes from two Greek words: Nikao which means to conquer, and Lao
which means laity. Nicolaitane means, "to conquer the laity." Some began,
Ignatius among them, to teach that the idea of a bishop was one of preiminence
or authority and control over the elders. But this is wrong. "Elder" signifies
an older experienced man, while the word bishop signifies the office of the same
man. The church of the middle and dark ages sold offices such as bishoprice and
cardinals to the rich in finance rather than the rich in faith. --Matthew
What is fallen Babylon? How did ancient Babylon
fall? God fell it because they were defiling the vessels of God's holy sanctuary
temple. Their King Beltchezzar displayed his disdain in a drunken orgy of lust.
God answered him with the handwriting on the wall which made him instantly
When God does this to a heathen King, how much
more should He do this to fallen Christianity who also trample on God's sacred
vessels. Pagan Rome destroyed the earthly temple in 70 a.d. but its successor,
papal Rome, trampled under foot the sacred teachings of salvation and Christ's
heavenly priesthood for 1260 days of years.
Her Protestant daughters (Revel.17) doing one
better. Papal Rome only dispensed with two of the Ten Commandments which have to
do with worship. But fallen Protestantism (see the Miscellaneous page) since
1830 a.d. teach against all of the Ten Commandments, which are the most sacred
vessels of all of God's sanctuary temple in heaven above. Here is the real
reason for apostasy. Rejecting something from CHRIST just because it is
unpopular with the world and therefore with politicians, CHRIST's holy Sabbath
day, is a moral fall.
While the Motherchurch has been in a fallen
condition for centuries, Protestant Reformers tried in vain to reform her.
Today, Romanists are so suprised to see her daughters coming back home.
What is the cause? Protestants have given up on the protest and having
sunken and accepted the Catholic Counter-Reformation teachings of the Jesuit
priests in form of pretorism and futurism mentioned above, they have come
to see Roman Catholicism in much of the same light after many decades of
negotiations and compromising. Revelation 17 will find its climax when the
world council of church uphold roman catholicism in using the arms of the states
to enforce false dogmas, the mark of the beast 666.
Most Evangelical fundamentalists have missed the
point. It can be clearly seen by authors such as Hal Lindsey and
M.R.deHaan in insisting that the woman of the book of Revelation cannot be the
Christian church, but refers to the nation of Israel alone. But GOD
clearly says that He is finished with Israel as a nation and that it has been
replaced by a new nation [Christianity].
"If those ordinances depart from before Me, saith the Lord, then the seed
of Israel shall cease from being a nation before Me forever."
When did the ordinances depart? "That
at the time you were without CHRIST, being aliens from the commonwealth of
Israel, and strangers of the covenant of promise..................having
abolished in the flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in
"Blotting out the handwritings of ordinances that was against us, which
was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to the cross."
The ceremonial laws contained in ordinaces of the
old testament that had pointed to CHRIST the lamb of GOD was the centre of the
sanctuary system explaining the Gospel in details. The earthly shadowy
sanctuary was only a copy of the original one in heaven, the real thing.
The earthly was now come to an end, and CHRIST is now our real high Priest and
the sacrifice all in one. The earthly sacrifices with all its food and
drink offerings as well as holy days are no longer needed.
"Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and
a worldly sanctuary." [Hebr.9:1] because of this worldly
sanctuary, the apostle Paul also called all its services connected with it "rudiments
of the world'" [see Col.2:8,20] which include the seven Jewish yearly
Sabbath feast apart from GOD's Sabbath of the 10 Commandments. [Cf. Gal.4:10
with 1.Cor.7:19] etc.
to literal Israel JESUS said: The stone
[rock] which the builders rejected...........Therefore I say unto you, The
Kingdom of GOD shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the
fruit thereof." [Matth.21:42,43].
"But you are a chosen generation, a royal
priesthood, an holy nation." [1.Peter 2:9].
"Seventy weeks are determined upon thy
people [Daniel's people] and upon thy holy city [earthly Jerusalem], to finish
the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for
iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision
and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy [Sanctuary]."
70 weeks of prophetic years extended to the time
of Christ, namely 490 years, or 70x70. Since the earthly temple Sanctuary
ended with the cross of JESUS CHRIST on Calvary. to anoint the Most Holy place
in heaven, is the only way to acknowledge JESUS as our Saviour from sin.
Evangelicals like Hal Lindsay and deHaan are concentrating on the rebuilding and
restoring of the earthly which was abolished at the cross. Literal Israel
is now spiritual Israel.
In refuting the Evangelical fundamentalist interpretation and their denial of
the church being the woman, either pure or corrupt, we quote Revelation itself:
"Let us be glad and rejoice................for the marriage of the Lamb is
come, and His wife has made herself ready......blessed are they which are called
to the marriage." [Rev.19:7-9].
Theologians today would face an embarrassment if
they had to point out a physical location of Armageddon! So, what is the last
war or battle of Armageddon? According to Revelation 12:17 and 14:12, it is over
the commandments of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ held by the Remnants
or leftovers of Christianity. God's holy Law of morals, the Decalogue, is a
spiritual Law (Rom.7:14,12,7) deposited in the ark of God under His throne or
mercy seat (Hebrews 8:1-5).
Further Observation on Rev.17
The difference between the 7 headed beast in Rev.13 and Rev.17,
is that in Rev.13 the horns ( rulers ) have crowns, but in Rev.17 the crown are
not mentioned because they were taken away by the French Revolution July
14,1789-1799. Most of the world followed France in disposing royalty and
introduce democracies. But in Rev.17 under the NWO (New World Order), democracy
and the protestant Reformation will be reversed.
Also note that in 1798 the pope was taken prisoner and off the
royal throne of the empire by the French army. But the 10 horns in Rev.17 will
receive power "as" Kings do (verse 12). The Beast in Rev.13 stands on
the beach because it grew out of the water ( the world's population ) but in
Rev.17 it is the great Whore that is seated on many waters and she was also seen
in the wilderness ( v.3 ) which corresponds with Rev. 12:6,14, the 1260 days of
years of papal reign.
Please also note that in Daniel chapter seven the 10 horns or
kings that roamed and ruled Rome in its dying stages, 3 were uprooted to make
room for the little horn or papacy who than became the eight's. But this is not
the case in Rev.17 even though the territory of the Roman Empire still applies
under what is now known as the treaty of Rome, or the European Common Market to
do a lot of trading of merchandise mentioned in Revelation 18.
Through the centuries practically every country of Europe has
its state church, and all call the church of Rome their mother. It
can therefore symbolize nothing less than the universal churches. Then it is
seen breaking up into three major parts, catholicism, protestantism and
spiritualism which unites hem.
1 000 years [Millennium] of peace!
The advent of Jesus will usher in the peace we all long for.
Do not let Jehovah's Witnesses entangle you in endless arguments. Luke
24:37 makes 1914 a non-event. Jesus did not resurrect a as a Spirit, and
therefore did not return on that date, floating as a Spirit, trying to improve
That expression "bottomless pit" represents the earth in a state of
confusion and darkness is evident from other scriptures. Concerning the
condition of the earth "in the beginning," the Bible record says that
it "was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the
deep."-Gen.1:2 The word "deep" here is rendered in the
Greek Septuagint version as "bottomless pit".
Prophecy teaches that it will be brought back, partially at
least, to this condition. Looking forward to this great day of God, the
prophet Jeremiah declares: "I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without
form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light. I beheld the
mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly. I
beheld, and lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.
I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities
thereof were broken down.---Jer.4:23-26.
Here is to be the home of Satan and his evil angels for a
thousand years.--- (Apocalypse 20:1-3). Limited to this earth, he will not
have access to other worlds to tempt and annoy those who have never fallen.
It is in this sense that he is bound: there are none remaining, on whom he can
exercise his power. He is completely cut off from the work of deception
and ruin which for so many centuries has been his only delight.
The prophet Isaiah, looking forward to the overthrow of Satan,
writes, How have you fallen from heaven Lucifer, son of the morning! how have
you been cut down to the ground, which did weaken the nations!.......that made
the world a wilderness and destroyed the cities thereof!---Is.14:12-17.
For six thousand years, Satan's work of rebellion has
"made the earth to tremble". He now has plenty of time to think
and watch the ruins he has caused. At this very time, the victorious
saints that have overcome the beast 666 will sit with Christ Jesus on the
thrones of judgment (Apocalypse 20:4,6).
The Woman that rides the Beast
Riding also means to steer or direct the beast, in this case,
the reigning government willing to do her bidding and enforce her false and
What or who is the Woman? Here the whole of Christianity
has been led astray by authors such as Dr. DeHaan and other rapture
advocates. Their problem is with the three and a half years prophecy of
Anti-Christ inherited from dispensationalist John Darby and the Oxford tract
society who borrowed heavily from the Roman Catholic Counter-Reformation
DeHaan declares the 'woman' is none other than the Nation of
Israel despite the fact that God says explicitly that He is finished with old
Israel. Those who would make the woman the church, he said, will find it
difficult to harmonize this fact with their interpretation.---35 Simple Studies
on the major themes in Rev.,p.168.
Roman Catholicism of course declares the woman of Revelation 12
(Apocalypse), to be Mother Mary. No one has ever seen her in the
wilderness yet. And how is the Nation of Israel going to mount the Beast
666 and lead the New World Order or the Catholic Church? This is absurd!
The woman is said to be clothed with the sun (sun of righteousness) and the moon
is under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. Just as the
moon has no light of its self and reflects the light of the sun, so the old
testament light was only dim, a shadow of the new. The full truth and glory of
Christ's righteousness shines now in the new testament age.
The old Israel and the old testament had their twelve tribes,
which have now been transferred to the new Israel and the new testament (James
1:1). We now also have the twelve apostles, and these are represented by
the church or woman's crown with the twelve stars in Revelation (Apocalypse)
They are being hunted and persecuted by the Dragon which has seven crowns on his
heads (verse2). The duration the woman had to flee from the dragon into
the wilderness will also help to identify the woman. The literal three and
a half years that Protestantism now believes in, is borrowed directly from
Futurism of the Roman Catholic Church.
The Protestant version is the year day principle and we have shown that Satan
worked for 1260 days of years from 538-1798 A.D. using the church of Rome to
persecute the woman.
Paul says that he has espoused the true Christian convert as a
"VIRGIN" to Christ (1.Cor.11:2) and every born again Christian is
cleansed from sin by the blood of Jesus and therefore his life has been ironed
out and no longer has wrinkles, spots (of sin) but should be holy and without
The shining robe of Jesus and His righteousness and His glory
replaces our own righteousness, which is as filthy rags. But when we
come to the end of chapter 12, we can see the identifying marks of the woman's offspring's,
children, remnants or leftovers. They keep the Commandments of God and
have the faith of Jesus and His testimony. The testimony are the Ten
Commandments and Christianity should rename them to the Nine Commandments
because they do not obey the fourth, The Sabbath of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Ex.31:18;Ex.32:15,16;Apocalypse 15:5; 11:19 Ex.20:8-11 Mark 2:28
Revelation present prophecy as a slide show, and not as
amovie or video. The views given are snapshots in time, spread outover the
entire history of God's people. Symbols are used to depict different ideas of
how these characters present themselves at different times.
One example is the two horned beast of Rev. 13 and the false prophet. The two
horned beast is the United States, a nation, while the false prophet is apostate
Protestantism. Yet we see the two different characters playing the same role at
the same time and we must conclude they represent one and the same. In other
words, the Two Horned Beast of Rev. 13:11 is identical with the False Prophet in
later chapters. They are one and the same. Yet they are also distinct, in that
Apostate Protestantism identified totally with America is part of America, but
America is more than the Apostate Protestants within it. The two symbols show
that the American False Prophet is joined to the government of America, part and
parcel with it, and America speaks through the voice of the False Prophet. A
true prophet is never joined to a Nation.
