About Revelation

Revelation 1:1 The Revelation of Emmanuel the Christ, which God gave unto him, to show unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John.

Revelation 1:1 The Revelation of Emmanuel the Christ, which God gave unto him, to show unto his servants.(those devoted to the things of the Creator).things which must shortly (the word 'shortly' is also translated 'in, among, with, within, wherewith, at, instantly, whereupon, almost, therein, through, between, against, being' and perhaps would have been better translated as.'things which among us must be', referring to the people of God and the times then).come to pass and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:.John 21:24.

Revelation 1:2 Who bare record of the word of God and of the testimony of Emmanuel Christ and of all things that he saw.(original 'saw' and 'knew about').

Revelation 1:3 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.

Revelation 1:4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia. 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;

These seven churches were in what's called Asia Minor around the time of 60 A.D. They were.Ephesus.(Revelation 2:1-7),.Smyrna.(Revelation 2:8-11) Pergamos.(Revelation 2:12-17),.Thyatira.(Revelation 2:18-29),.
Sardis.(Revelation 3:1-6),.Philadelphia.(Revelation 3:7-13) and.Laodicea.(Revelation 3:14-22). John was writing to them, but there were many other churches, such as in Phrygia, Pamphylia, Galatia, Pontus, Cappadocia and also in other places.

Revelation 1:5 And from Emmanuel the Christ, who is the faithful witness and the first begotten of the dead and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us and washed us from.(original for word 'from' is 'separated us').our sins in his own blood,

How can Emmanuel be the first begotten of the dead, when even He saw.(Matthew 17:2,3).Moses and Elijah alive long after they had passed on?
Emmanuel was the first into the kingdom of God. In Moses and Elijah's time there was no kingdom to enter, not available until Christ. Prior to Emmanuel the Christ being on Earth, He was with God the Father and all else of the spiritual.realm, wherein were, no doubt, Moses, Elijah and so many others having passed on who were of God in their daily lives:.Hebrews 12:22,23. Emmanuel was the first human, as He came in human form.(Hebrews 2:17), to go into what is known as the kingdom of God:.John 14:2,3. Those of God who have passed on will be resurrected into it. Those not of God will also be resurrected.

Revelation 1:6 And has made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 

Revelation 1:7 Behold, he comes with clouds and every eye shall see him and they also which pierced him.(?). And all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him.(they'll realize He really does exist and how wrong they have been in their lives, avoiding the things of love for those of the selfish, resentful and greedy, etc. way of life). Even so, Amen.

Revelation 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega.(the Greek words for beginning and ending, really saying that God is all there is), the beginning.(John 1:1-3).and the ending.(1Corinthians 15:24), says the Lord which is and which was and which is to come, the Almighty.

Revelation 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega.(Isaiah 44:6), the beginning and the ending.(?).says the Lord which is and which was.(*).and which is to come.(original omits word 'to', so simply 'which is come'; and how now has He come?, the Almighty..(it's saying that all begins and ends with Creator-God, that all is of God {2Corinthians 5:18 "And all things are of God..." Ephesians 3:9 "...who created all things by Emmanuel.Christ."}, that without God, nothing exists.in the physical; God is all there is:.Deuteronomy 4:35,39).(God's greatness)

Revelation 1:9 I John, who also am your brother and companion in tribulation and in the kingdom and patience of Emmanuel the Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos for the word of God and for the testimony of Emmanuel the Christ.

Revelation 1:9 I John, who also am your brother and companion in tribulation and in the kingdom and patience of Emmanuel the Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos.(a rugged and bare island in the Aegean Sea (between Greece and Asia Minor {Turkey}, an arm of the Mediterranean Sea off southeast Europe), for the word of God.(John wanted to see what the Creator had for him).and for the testimony of Emmanuel the Christ.

Revelation 1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day and heard behind me a great voice as of a trumpet,

Revelation 1:10 I was in the Spirit.(the spirit can go places:.1Peter 3:18,19; what is the spirit?).on the Lord's day and heard behind me a great voice as of a trumpet,.(a more accurate translation would be 'I was in the Spirit with the Lord on this day', or 'I was in the Spirit pertaining to things of the Lord on this day')

Revelation 1:11 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; unto Ephesus and unto Smyrna and unto Pergamos and unto Thyatira and unto Sardis and unto Philadelphia and unto Laodicea..(on the seven churches, see verse 4 above)

Revelation 1:12-15 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks 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.

Revelation 1:16 And he had in his right hand seven stars and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword and his countenance was as the sun shining in his strength.

Revelation 1:17 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.(?).

Revelation 1:18 I am he that lives and was dead and behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen and have the keys of hell and of death.

Revelation 1:19 Write the things which you have seen and the things which are and the things which shall be hereafter.(what were these hereafter things?);

Revelation 1:20 The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in my right hand and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches and the seven candlesticks which you saw are the seven churches..(?)

Revelation 2:1 Unto the angel of the church of.Ephesus.write; These things said he that holds the seven stars in his right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;

Revelation 2:2 I know your works and your labour and your patience and how you can not bear them which are evil. And you have tried them which say they are apostles and are not and have found them liars.

Revelation 2:3 And have borne and have patience and for my name's sake has laboured and have not fainted.

Revelation 2:4,5 Nevertheless I have somewhat against you, because you have left your first love. Remember therefore from whence you are fallen and repent.(repent means change).and do the first works, or else I will come unto you quickly and will remove your candlestick out of his place except you repent..(*)

Revelation 2:6 But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans which I also hate..(?)

Revelation 2:7 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches.(Revelation 1:20 above): To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Revelation 2:8 And unto the angel of the church in.Smyrna.write; These things says the first and the last.(?), which was dead and is alive;

Revelation 2:9 I know your works and tribulation and poverty, but you art rich and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

Revelation 2:10 Fear none of those things which shall be suffered. Behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that you may be tried.(*).and you shall have tribulation ten days.(a 'few' days:.Genesis 24:55). Be you faithful unto death and I will give you a crown of life.

Revelation 2:11 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches: He that overcomes shall not be hurt of the second death.

Revelation 2:12 And to the angel of the church in.Pergamos.write; These things says he which has the sharp sword with two edges;

Revelation 2:13 I know your works and where you dwell, even where Satan's seat is. And you hold fast my name and have not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas.(a Christian of the city of Pergamos; nothing more known of him).was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwells.

Revelation 2:14 But I have a few things against yu, because you have there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac.('Balac' is the Greek spelling in the New Testament {*} of the Old Testament 'Balak').to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols and to commit fornication.

Revelation 2:15 So have you also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.

The Nicolaitans were a sect of the Gnostics (an early system of philosophy, calling themselves Christian) which engaged in pagan non-spiritual practices to get control of people for the profit of the controllers:.Revelation 2:6,14,15.

Revelation 2:16 Repent or else I will come unto you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

Revelation 2:17 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna and will give him a white stone and in the stone a new name written which no man knowes saving he that receives it.

Revelation 2:18 And unto the angel of the church in.Thyatira.write; These things says the Son of God, who has his eyes like unto a flame of fire and his feet are like fine brass;

Revelation 2:19 I know your works and charity and service and faith and your patience and your works and the last to be more than the first. (one's high consciousness actions at the beginning of his spiritual journey which is one's awakening, will progress to being greater actions {John 14:12} at the end when one's time for these works or actions is finished and rewards are made known from the book of life)

Revelation 2:20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calls herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

Revelation 2:21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication and she repented not.

Revelation 2:22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

Revelation 2:23 And I will kill her children with death and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

Revelation 2:24 But unto you I say and unto the rest in Thyatira.(a city of Asia Minor, on the borders of Lydia and Mysia), as many as have not this doctrine and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden;

Revelation 2:25 But that which you have already hold fast till I come.

Revelation 2:26 And he that overcomes and keeps my works.(what are His works?).unto the end to him will I give power over the nations.(a reward).

Revelation 2:27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers.(no more of the works of low consciousness), even as I received of my Father.

Revelation 2:28 And I will give him the morning star.(2Peter 1:19).

Revelation 2:29 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches.

Revelation 3:1 And unto the angel of the church in.Sardis.write; These things says he that has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars, I know your works that you have a name that you live and are dead.

Revelation 3:2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

Revelation 3:3 Remember therefore how you have received and heard and hold fast and repent. If therefore you shall not watch, I will come on you as a thief and you shall not know what hour I will come upon you.

Revelation 3:4 You have a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments and they shall walk with me in white, for they are worthy.

Revelation 3:5 He that overcomes.(original for 'he that overcomes' is 'comes off victorious'.{*}), the same shall be clothed in white raiment and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels.

Note that his name was already in the book of life (from when? 2Timothy 1:9) and his overcoming gets him some white clothes and the security of his name being there.

Revelation 3:6 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches. 

Revelation 3:7 And to the angel of the church in.Philadelphia.write; These things says he that is holy, he that is true, he that has the key of David, he that opens and no man shuts and shuts and no man opens;

Revelation 3:8 I know your works. Behold I have set before you an open door and no man can shut it, for you have a little strength and have kept my word and have not denied my name.

Revelation 3:8 I know your works. Behold.(take note, notice).I have set before you an open door and no man can shut it, for you have a little strength and have kept my word.(what word? Romans 10:8,17; John 10:35; Ephesians 6:17; 1Thessalonians 2:13).and have not denied my name..(how do we deny Him?)

Revelation 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before your feet and to know that I have loved you.

Revelation 3:10 Because you have kept the word of my patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation, which comes upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Revelation 3:11 Behold, I come quickly. Hold that fast which you have, that no man take your crown..(stick to your direction of being good; what's good?)

Revelation 3:12 Him that overcomes.(overcomes what and how?).will I make a pillar in the temple of my God and he shall go no more out and I will write upon him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God which is new Jerusalem which comes down out of heaven from my God. And I will write upon him my new name..(also Revelation 21:2)

Revelation 3:13 He that has an ear.(he that cares), let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches.

Revelation 3:14 And unto the angel of the church of the.Laodiceans.write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

Revelation 3:15 I know thy works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I would you were cold or hot.

Revelation 3:16 So then because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spue you out of my mouth.

Revelation 3:17 Because you say, I am rich and increased with goods and have need of nothing and know not that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked.

Revelation 3:17 Because you say, I am rich and increased with goods and have need of nothing.(Amos 9:10).and know not that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked..(the arrogant who feel they are full, just cannot see that no matter how much one has, the universe is always onward and upward, an example being that of knowledge where those who hunger for it realize that there is always so much more to gain of it and so, they see what is lacking and do something about it; but, like bullies, whose only concern is the power the self can muster, this verse here means that without the guidance of God in one's life he just can't comprehend things that are of long range benefit to everyone and these are based in the spiritual things; living from the ego level makes one subject to easily being deceived by the master of deceit {Revelation 12:9} because one is so centralized {his world is selfish, always grasping for more for the self} and thus can't reason properly, because it takes love to reason properly {Isaiah 1:6 "From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness...".2Timothy 1:7,13} and love to enter into faith necessary for salvation {salvation is being saved from the ego level {yours and others} which produces all of mankind's problems}):.Galatians 5:6.

Revelation 3:18 I counsel you to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that you may be rich. And white raiment, that you may be clothed and that the shame of your nakedness does not appear.(trials are designed to make you different from the you that was shameful). And anoint your eyes with eyesalve, that you may see..(trials are also designed to get you to see things differently; ask God to awaken you and do what you can to improve)

Revelation 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Be zealous therefore and repent.

Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to him and will sup with him and he with me.

Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock.(Matthew 7:7). If any man hear my voice and open the door.(why does one first have to 'open the door'?), I will come in to him.(*).and will sup.(you do not usually have supper with an enemy, it is usually those of similar heart to yours:.Luke 14:14).with him and he with me.

Revelation 3:21 To him that overcomes.(overcomes what?).will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame and am set down with my Father in his throne.

Revelation 3:22 He that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches.

Revelation 4:1 After this I looked and behold, a door was opened in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me, which said, Come up hither and I will show you things which must be hereafter.

Now imagine if you will, this could have been a giant, what we today would call, spaceship:.Genesis 15:17. A door opens in this gigantic spaceship, which seems to come out of nowhere and that could have been coming into our dimension from another, through what's called a stargate, an opening to another dimension. God doesn't have to master interdimensional travel in a spaceship, because God is the universe, that is, all that is. John here sees this 'spaceship' having 'a door opening in heaven'. He hears a sound that he describes as a trumpet communicating with him, inviting him to come aboard to find out what it is that has been planned to occur.

Revelation 4:2-4 And immediately I was in the spirit. And, behold, a throne was set in heaven and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone.(His appearance looked like these two stones with their colors shining). And there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats. And upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment and they had on their heads crowns of gold.

John immediately responded to the situation and went along with what they were saying to him. He climbs aboard or is beemed aboard and sees on this gigantic spaceship, set up there in the 'heaven', the sky, one of the God beings sitting. This God being had, what we'll call, a garment, on Him that shone as if it were made of jasper and sardine stones. The rainbow round the place where this God sat was a large dome at the top of the spacecraft, which dome appears to be in the shape of an emerald. All around the throne of what was now called God in the Bible, were 24 seats with 24 beings on them. Their garments were white in color. They had authority as shown by the crowns of gold on their heads.

Revelation 4:5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices. And there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are.(or, represent).the seven Spirits of God.

This whole throne area on this gigantic spaceship had emanating electrical fields sounding like thunder when any of them spoke. Seven of these 24 beings were designated by having a lamp of fire, as John called it, beside them. 

Revelation 4:6,7 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.(original 'living creatures').full of eyes.(similar to what Ezekiel saw:.Ezekiel 1:4-28: Ezekiel 10:1-22; Daniel 7:9).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.

John noted what appeared to him as a sea of crystal and in the midst of the throne and around it was sitting four creatures with eyes all around their heads. The first one he noticed, overall looked like a lion, the second, like a calf, the third, whatever creature it may have looked like, had the face of a human being and the fourth overall looked like an eagle with its wings spread out. Were they different looking spaceships used in interdimensional travel? They appeared as 'living creatures' in that they could move in various ways, as a helicopter does today.

Revelation 4:8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him and they were full of eyes within. And they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was and is and is to come..

John here adds to what he described in verses 6,7 above, adding that these four 'living creatures' had wings and that the eyes were in the wings. Could the eyes have been portals in a spaceship that had windows showing light inside them? Their whole main purpose had to do with carrying out God's determination for mankind on Earth and what's that.

Earthlings may have forgotten God, but God in no way has forgotten them and is to reveal Himself fully to them, after hiding for so long because of them.

Revelation 4:9 And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne.(Psalms 103:19).who lives for ever and ever,

These beings, John, in his vision, saw as creatures/beasts, were praising this good God.(there is also a bad god). Were they praising the Great Eternal Invisible Intelligent Energy, the Source of everything?.Jeremiah 23:24. And were spacecrafts used back then as they are today?.Genesis 15:17

Is this Intelligent Energy the source of all behind even the Being in this throne room mentioned here in this verse? This amazing source is behind all things we see and the things we don't see, that is, It is all things, now, before and forever and out of which came angels, one of whom became leader of the dark side. Who was this and how did he become as he was? 

By what these beasts were doing, that is, the praising, shows that they were in spiritual.alignment with this God on the throne, also called the Intelligent Almighty Energy behind the scenes, out of which all creation both visible and invisible comes (how?), including Christ.(*), the mediator between God and those in Christ:.1Timothy 2:5.

Where's the other god, the bad one, the dark side one, now? Luke 10:18

Revelation 4:10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne and worship him that lives for ever and ever and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,

When this praising begins, John noted that the 24 elders (an elder maybe in spirituality, knowledge, authority and area) acknowledge by paying attention to not just the one on the throne, but what that one epitomizes, which would be the Eternal Invisible Intelligent Energy Source or God, as we call it today. 

Today we call this energy source of everything seen and unseen, God and also called,.the Silence. The praising, the attention toward the source of all Invisible Intelligent Energy.(Revelation 1:8) shows agreement of mind, that is, they are willing to commit their attitude, power and greatness to purposes of good, which is the mind of.the Silence, where the Elohim came out of. So, there is the Intelligent Invisible Energy, out of which came the Elohim to use this power in creating/maintaining the universe, all in it, including other life forms and mankind and the Earth and its systems, which are always monitored and maintained by what they do in using the thoughts, guidelines or frequencies that are this Intelligent Energy.

Revelation 4:11 You are worthy O Lord to receive glory and honour and power. For you have created all things.(Ephesians 3:9; Exodus 19:5).and for your pleasure.(original for 'pleasure' is 'what you wished to be done', 'because of your will' or because of the purpose for mankind; because this is just the way the Intelligent Energy behind the Creators wanted it).they are and were created.
