    It doesn't allow me to C&P. I will just add in my own words when appropriate.

    Oh then that will be helpful. Your standard study Bible is the one to use with commentary from me and anyone else who has Miller's version. I also have a study Bible that I can use.

    When we read the words that are written in the Bible we need to be able to read a script that translates those words into every day terms, otherwise we'll have a hard time understanding.

    Here's a video of John Hagee talking about the End Times. I think it must have been taped when Obama was in office. There were so many of Hagee's End Time videos on Youtube that I didn't know which one to post. I realize some folks (sooda) don't like Hagee but at least he explains the Scriptures where they are understandable and he does it with humor. GHQ

    All I can do is share what continues to be most helpful to me personally in the study of God's Word in print. It is important to realize that the Bible is not written in a narrative like nearly all other books. One cannot read the Book of Revelation straight through like a novel. A reference Bible and a good concordance such as "Strong's Exhaustive Concordance" is most helpful . Each scripture referenced should be looked up to find where it is stated in other Books of the Bible, and any words not clear can be looked up in the concordance.

    The most important thing we can do is to ask God to give us understanding. And forgiveness. Do I ever need that.

    Yes, we all do. We also know that God understands (after all, He created us and was actually one of us) and He forgives all who ask forgiveness.

    But my hope in making the thread was that we could go through the Book and, using the study guides some have offered, discuss the meaning and truths hidden within. CJ had the right idea, and the first part is fairly straightforward.

    But it gets very esoteric and symbolic and I get totally lost. Can we go...slowly, for us lesser beings...and comment, and ask questions, and...discuss and learn? That would be nice.

    Absolutely. The analogy of ' iron sharpens iron' would certainly seem to apply. One of the more striking revelations in chapter 1 is that of what God actually looks like. This astounding information clears up a mystery that nobody ever knew. Christ said that " If you have seen me, you have seen the Father." In other words, Christ, who became a man, had previously under the authority of God the Father made man in the image of God. Chapter 1 gives a vivid, detailed picture of what God looks like. Both ( God and the Word) no man had ever seen, at anytime, anywhere. John 1:18 and John 5:37.

    In John 5:37 we also learn that nobody has ever heard the voice of God the Father either. That means that Christ, as the Word, was the One who Moses heard and the One who gave the Commandments .

    The point is that just from one part of the Bible, by checking references to other parts, and asking God for understanding, we can learn a great deal from just a few passages.

    especially when reading his word. The other...always.
    Sarah Sanders doesn't often mop the White House Press Corp Floor...but when she does, she uses Jim Acosta.

    There is no American free press. They're bought and paid for.

    The Devil whispered in Trump's ear and said, 'You're not strong enough to withstand the storm". President Trump whispered back, "i am The Storm"!

    and Epstein didn't kill himself.

    Last nite I read over chapter one again with all the notes at the bottom. One part said not to get so caught up in understanding it all because even John didn't. He was shown things that he would have no good descriptions for. @Rita Marley.

    This book is supposed to give us hope and assurance with a glimpse of what is going to happen in the future. God repeats in the bible. I think he knows we need that for it to sink in.

    Many say John's visions and writings were for his time. that's true...but it is also for the future. God gives a small taste in current time of what is going to happen in the distant future. For example, the many examples of Jesus before the real Jesus came along....we saw that especially in the old Testament. Also, the many tastes of the anti-Christ...each getting worse.....before we see the 'real' antichrist.
