Judgement of the woman upon a scarlet Beast

" I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. " Revelation 17:5 The mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carried her is revealed; The Woman " And this woman you saw in your vision represents the great city that rules over the kings of the earth ." Revelation 17:18 I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration, vs 6  "And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." Revelation 17:5 That's the reason it was built; "The kings of the world have had immoral relations with her, and the people of the earth have been made drunk by the wine of her immorality." Revelation 17:2 Scarlet Beast A seat of idolatry and cruel oppressive governments, will deceive people except the remna

The Trumpet Judgements

" Then the seven angels with the seven trumpets prepared to blow their mighty blasts. " Revelation 8:6 God's wrath is here! As horrible as the seal judgments were, the trumpet judgments will be worse. The first 4 announce destruction of earth’s ecology, while the final 3 concerns great devastation of the earth’s inhabitants. The first angel blew his trumpet  " The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up ." Revelation 8:7 hail and fire mixed with blood were thrown down upon the earth. one-third of the earth was set on fire  one-third of the trees were burned, and all the green grass. The second angel blew his trumpet  " And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; And the third part of the cre

The four horses

The Lamb, Christ opened the first seal and John looked and  saw; 1. A white horse. (6 vs 2) Its rider carried a bow, and a crown was placed upon his head; he rode out to conquer in many battles and win the war. a time of peace, progress and victory and success in every way, be it evangelism, everything going as intended.  2. A Red horse. (6 vs 4) Times of desolation, judgment, war and persecution. - All happening to "...take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another..." 3.   A black horse (6 vs 5) woe, mourning and darkness and ignorance. "For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee." Isaiah 60:2  He that sat on it had a pair of balances in his hand meaning; the knowledge and practice of true religion will became scarce.  famine of the word of God and of true religion the necessities of life will be at excessive pri

The Little Open Book

Another powerful Angel (probably the Lord) had a little book open in his hand, when he called out - the Seven Thunders also called back. We do not know what was echoed by the seven thunders, nor was the reason for suppressing them.  All we know is John was told to " Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. " Revelation 10:4  But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets." (Revelation 10:7). At the end of the prophecies, time should be no more.  John eats the little book And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth." Revelation 10:8  He took the little book out of the hand of the angel, and ate it up; and lo, it was in his mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as he ha

Things which must be hereafter - Part 2

The vision of the seals These seals express events to be fulfilled; 1st Seal: The Conquerer  "… the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer …" Revelation 6:1-2 The Four beasts We saw them in Revelation 4:7, "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." Lion - the prophecy of victory, (the first seal). Calf - a symbol of slaughter, war and persecution, (the second seal). Man - a symbol of heresy and false opinions, (the third seal). Eagle - a symbol of resurrection and the forerunner of the final victory of the just over the death and Hades, (the fourth seal). 2nd Seal: Conflict on Earth  " And when he h

Who is worthy to open the book?

" And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? " Revelation 5:2 The book was written on the inside and on the back, and sealed with seven seals. This book was sealed, i.e. made under seal and so was treated differently from other written books. A seal is an emblem used as a means of authentication. No one in all heaven or earth or from among the dead was permitted to open and read this book expect the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, who has conquered, and has proved himself worthy to open the book and to break its seven seals. The Lamb "... beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. " Revelation 5:6 stood a Lamb as it had been slain, "for thou wast slain, and hast redeem

Things which must be hereafter - Part 1

Heaven is revealed " 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 shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne ." Revelation 4:1-2 John was in the spirit, and in heaven he saw; 1. A throne and someone sitting on it, vs 2 he that sat upon it (God) looked like a jasper and a sardine stone, (God's perfection and eternity)  a rainbow (type of God's consolatory promises or covenant) glowing like an emerald encircled his throne,  lightning and thunder (judgement) were issued from the throne, and there were voices in the thunder, vs 5 2. Twenty-four smaller thrones with twenty-four Elders sitting on them , were round about the throne, vs 4 the elders (well known people who are representatives of God's people) were all
