    Book of Revelation

    Anybody want to delve into it? I've read it a couple of times and can't make head nor tails of it. I know bad things happen in Rome.

    I volunteer for the 400,000 gods warriors to fight for it all.
    The People have to have real justice or we'll never ever trust the govt again. And that means we fire more politicians until we get constitutionalists.

    I have read Revelation more than a few times. I have read several good books about it. And I still can't make heads or tails about it. And I have felt there are flaws in the books.

    I have Revelation set up to read again now. So if there is a discussion going on, I"m in. But don't expect much wisdom from me...... I haven't had any Revelation epiphanies yet.

    I can't make it out either........ simply because every preacher has something different to say about it. Some things I do know. There has to be a One World Government for the anti-christ to rule. We're headed in that direction now....look at all the countries that want open borders. Open borders set the stage for an actual one world.
    The final battle will be in the Valley of Jazreel which is in Israel. The blood will flow to the horse's bridles but in the end Israel will win because the Lord comes back to fight for them. I've never been able to understand where the United States fits in. Maybe we help Israel....maybe we won't be able too. I don't know. One thing I do know....the Bible is just not words on paper....it is real...it is true. My gut instinct tells me the entire race of man is careening towards hell on earth....and....why not....man has put his own laws ahead of God's Laws.

    A 200 million man army comes down the Euphrates River to fight against Israel. The only country that would have that many soldiers is China.

    In addition, the book of Daniel ties into the end times.

    Let's do it. The first few chapters are pretty easy. That is Christ talking to each of the seven churches and they are examples of churches of today.

    I like to start with the basics. Revelation was penned by John the Apostle, youngest of the apostles, one of the sons of Zebedee. He was the brother of James. He adored Jesus. It was to John that Jesus gave the care of His (Jesus) mother. John was old and exiled on Patmos (by Rome, probably emperor Domitian), a greek island in the Aegean sea. He was exiled there because he would not stop preaching the gospel. He was the last surviving of the original disciples. John was the only apostle to die of old age. His brother James was the first apostle to be martyrd. The Book of Revelation was written in 90AD.

    here's the first chapter.



    Revelation 1 New American Standard Bible (NASB)The Revelation of Jesus Christ

    1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show to His bond-servants, the things which must soon take place; and He sent and [a]communicated it by His angel to His bond-servant John, 2 who testified to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw. 3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and [b]heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near.
    Message to the Seven Churches

    4 John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace, from Him who is and who was and who [c]is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne, 5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins [d]by His blood— 6 and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to [e]His God and Father—to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. 7 Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen.
    8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who [f]is to come, the Almighty.”
    The Patmos Vision

    9 I, John, your brother and fellow partaker in the tribulation and kingdom and [g]perseverance which are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. 10 I was [h]in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet, 11 saying, “Write in a [i]book what you see, and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.”
    12 Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands; 13 and in the middle of the lampstands I saw one like [j]a son of man, clothed in a robe reaching to the feet, and girded across His chest with a golden sash. 14 His head and His hair were white like white wool, like snow; and His eyes were like a flame of fire. 15 His feet were like burnished bronze, when it has been made to glow in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters. 16 In His right hand He held seven stars, and out of His mouth came a sharp two-edged sword; and His face was like the sun [k]shining in its strength.
    17 When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man. And He placed His right hand on me, saying, “Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, 18 and the living One; and I [l]was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades. 19 Therefore write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after these things. 20 As for the mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.
