2-INTRODUCTION

BLESSED IS HE THAT READETH, AND THEY THAT HEAR THE WORDS OF THIS PROPHECY, AND KEEP THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE WRITTEN THEREIN: FOR THE TIME IS AT HAND-Rev 1:3.

The word "revelation," in the Webster’s Dictionary, means "act of revealing; divine communication." It can also mean "to disclose or unveil; appearing, coming, lighten, and manifestation." It conveys the meaning of something being covered or hidden, but then the veil is taken away, and it can clearly be seen.
The word "revelation" is used in the Bible ten times; "revelations" is used twice. This is the only book in the Bible that has a promised blessing to go with it-ref Rev 1:3.


The "Revelation" is the REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST-Rev 1:1. It is not of John as some Bible versions portray.


The Revelation is for a special group of people. It is written, THE REVELATION…WHICH GOD GAVE UNTO HIM, TO SHOW UNTO HIS SERVANTS-Rev 1:1. It is further written, JOHN TO THE SEVEN CHURCHES-Rev 1:4. BLESSED IS HE THAT READETH, AND…HEAR…AND KEEP THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE WRITTEN THEREIN-Rev 1:3. This select group, for whom the Revelation is written, are those that are converted, childlike, born-again servants of God, who will obey God’s Word. It is for those that have discernment through the Spirit of God. It is not for those in whom is no faith or the carnal Christian whose faith is unstable as a wave.


Many shy away from the Revelation. They think it is too difficult to understand. To the "make-believe Christian" and to the unbeliever, the Revelation may seem like a group of strange, confusing, frightening, and unbelievable events. They read the Revelation without understanding what they are reading, or they may ascribe meanings to what they are reading that are very unbiblical.



Thus, their understanding is confusion, even though they often think that they do understand. The Scriptures explain this, as it is written, UNTO YOU IT IS GIVEN TO KNOW THE MYSTERIES OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD: BUT TO OTHERS IN PARABLES; THAT SEEING THEY MIGHT NOT SEE, AND HEARING THEY MIGHT NOT UNDERSTAND-Lk 8:10. Nevertheless, Daniel says, BUT THE WICKED WILL CONTINUE TO BE WICKED. NONE OF THE WICKED WILL UNDERSTAND, BUT THOSE WHO ARE WISE WILL UNDERSTAND-Dan 12:10 NIV. 1 Cor 2:14-BUT THE NATURAL MAN (or man without the Spirit) RECEIVETH NOT (or does not accept) THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD: FOR THEY ARE FOOLISHNESS UNTO HIM: NEITHER CAN HE KNOW (or understand) THEM, BECAUSE THEY ARE SPIRITUALLY DISCERNED.


Some of the Revelation explains itself, while other portions are explained in Daniel, Isaiah, or other parts of the Bible.


Jesus Himself says that the Revelation is to be taught in the churches. It is written, I JESUS HAVE SENT MINE ANGEL TO TESTIFY UNTO YOU THESE THINGS IN THE CHURCHES-Rev 22:16. This is further substantiated in the introduction, as it is written, JOHN, TO THE SEVEN CHURCHES-Rev 1:4. The Revelation was given to be taught in the churches, from the time it was first delivered even until now.


The Revelation in itself gives a beautiful portrayal of the future. However, when coupled or assisted with parts of Daniel, Mt 24, Mk 13, and Lk 21, the picture becomes much more complete. When Ezekiel and Isaiah are added in, even more is revealed. When all the verses pertaining to end time prophecy are included, there unfolds a panorama that displays the magnificence of God’s incredible plan, from the creation of the heavens and earth, to the new heaven and earth and New Jerusalem that will one day come forth.

One might ask the question, "How should I study?"


It is written, IF ANY OF YOU LACK WISDOM, LET HIM ASK OF GOD, THAT GIVETH TO ALL MEN LIBERALLY (or generously), AND UPBRAIDETH NOT (or without finding fault); AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN HIM. BUT LET HIM ASK IN FAITH, NOTHING WAVERING (or he must believe and not doubt-NIV). FOR HE THAT WAVERETH (or doubts) IS LIKE A WAVE OF THE SEA DRIVEN (or blown) WITH THE WIND AND TOSSED. FOR LET NOT THAT MAN THINK THAT HE SHALL RECEIVE ANY THING OF THE LORD-Ja 1:5-7. THE ANOINTING...ABIDETH (or remains) IN YOU...THE…ANOINTING TEACHETH YOU OF ALL THINGS-1 Jn 2:27. For THE HOLY GHOST...HE SHALL TEACH YOU ALL THINGS-Jn 14:26.



The understanding of the Revelation comes from the Holy Ghost. It comes NOT IN THE WORDS WHICH MAN’S WISDOM TEACHETH, BUT WHICH THE HOLY GHOST TEACHETH; COMPARING SPIRITUAL THINGS WITH SPIRITUAL-1 Cor 2:13. Understanding is obtained by comparing the Word with the Word, by putting away preconceived ideas and false teachings and humbly seeking God with an attitude of, "Lord, I don’t know. Teach me."




THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS THE BEGINNING OF KNOWLEDGE-Pv 1:7. MY SON, IF THOU WILT RECEIVE MY WORDS, AND HIDE MY COMMANDMENTS WITH THEE; SO THAT THOU INCLINE THINE EAR UNTO WISDOM, AND APPLY THINE HEART TO UNDERSTANDING; YEA, IF THOU CRIEST AFTER KNOWLEDGE, AND LIFTEST UP THY VOICE FOR UNDERSTANDING; IF THOU SEEKEST HER AS SILVER, AND SEARCHEST FOR HER AS FOR HID TREASURES; THEN SHALT THOU UNDERSTAND THE FEAR OF THE LORD, AND FIND THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD-Pv 2:2-5.
HAPPY IS THE MAN THAT FINDETH WISDOM, AND THE MAN THAT GETTETH UNDERSTANDING. FOR THE MERCHANDISE OF IT IS BETTER THAN THE MERCHANDISE OF SILVER, AND THE GAIN THEREOF THAN FINE GOLD. SHE IS MORE PRECIOUS THAN RUBIES: AND ALL THE THINGS THOU CANST DESIRE ARE NOT TO BE COMPARED UNTO HER-Pv 3:13-15. WISDOM IS THE PRINCIPAL THING; THEREFORE GET WISDOM: AND WITH ALL THY GETTING GET UNDERSTANDING-Pv 4:7. MY SON, ATTEND UNTO MY WISDOM, AND BOW THINE EAR TO MY UNDERSTANDING-Pv 5:1.




RECEIVE MY INSTRUCTION, AND NOT SILVER; AND KNOWLEDGE RATHER THAN CHOICE GOLD-Pv 8:10. HOW MUCH BETTER IS IT TO GET WISDOM THAN GOLD! AND TO GET UNDERSTANDING RATHER TO BE CHOSEN THAN SILVER!-Pv 16:16. FOR WISDOM IS BETTER THAN RUBIES; AND ALL THE THINGS THAT MAY BE DESIRED ARE NOT TO BE COMPARED TO IT-Pv 8:11. A SCORNER SEEKETH WISDOM, AND FINDETH IT NOT: BUT KNOWLEDGE IS EASY UNTO HIM THAT UNDERSTANDETH-Pv 14:6. THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS THE INSTRUCTION OF WISDOM; AND BEFORE HONOR IS HUMILITY-Pv 15:33. APPLY THINE HEART...AND THINE EARS TO THE WORDS OF KNOWLEDGE-Pv 23:12. THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM: AND THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE HOLY IS UNDERSTANDING-Pv 9:10.




Do not come before God with an attitude of, "I already know." Humble yourself before God. Fear God. Be as a meek, little child ready to receive instruction from your heavenly Father. Always begin your study of God’s Word in prayer, asking Him to give you wisdom. Remember to ask in faith.
The Scriptures begin with man being separated from God because of sin; they end with the redeemed man being reunited with God for eternity.
3-GENERAL INFORMATION

The Revelation shows people on the earth, in heaven, many heavenly scenes, and those that perish to the lake of fire. It refers to the keys of hell and of death. There is the coming of the man of evil (the Antichrist), the dragon (which is Satan), and a false prophet.

It depicts a great war and one-fourth of the world’s population killed. Two prophets of God are killed and later rise again.

One-third of the world’s population is killed. Most of the events are centered around Israel. We see the saints in heaven, singing and great men hiding in the rocks of the mountains, terrified. A great battle is described, called the Battle of Armageddon. We see the second coming of Jesus Christ, Satan bound, the Antichrist and false prophet destroyed, and one thousand years of peace. Then Satan is released, a final rebellion occurs, and soon afterward Satan is cast into the lake of fire.


We see the heavens and earth pass away, the resurrection of the wicked, the great white throne judgment, and the books opened. People are cast into the lake of fire; a new heaven, a new earth, and a glorious city called New Jerusalem come forth.


There is a woman representing a city, a whore representing a religion, a beast representing a world leader, a dragon representing Satan, horns that appear to represent authority, eyes that seem to represent understanding, and white robes representing the righteousness of the saints. We see a crown portraying dominion, a number 666, and the number "seven" representing "completion" or "fullness."

The Revelation tells of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.


It reveals Who Jesus is; how Jesus looks; what Jesus has; what Jesus did, does, and will do. It covers Who Jesus was, is, and shall be; also the events of Jesus’ life in the past, present, and future.


The Revelation refers to the past, the present, and the future.


It mentions people, kings, angels, elders, and beasts.
It deals with the Jews and Gentiles, the whole world, the world to come, and the New Jerusalem.
The Revelation covers ten days, ten thousand times ten thousand, ten horns, ten crowns, and ten kings.
It presents seven churches, seven Spirits, seven golden candlesticks, seven stars, seven lamps, seven seals, seven horns, seven eyes, seven trumpets, seven angels, seven thunders, and seven thousand men slain. There are seven heads, seven crowns, seven more angels, seven golden vials (or bowls, or plagues), seven mountains, and seven kings.

RaptureTimingSequences: 40 years is a Generation(Judgment Generation)-Michael James Stone

RaptureTimingSequences

“Judgement Timing”

Point of Reference

“Sins of the Father”

There is a definite “blindspot” when it comes to setting dates and times of the ‘End Times” and Rapture.

1.     Most of the Timings DON’T look at the Point of View “FROM” Israel.

When Jesus Spoke of the End of the Age, He wasn’t talking to Christians or Western Culture, not speaking from a Hellenistic Perspective or Greek Logical Mind Set.

He was talking to Middle Eastern Culture and Setting, and He was talking to Jews.

Here is a Western Mindset About the current debate of giving timing of Jesus return:

A 120 Year Generation?

Q. I thought I’d add something to consider regarding a generation. I have looked at 70 years as the date of a generation. Also 40 years etc… The Bible tells us that no man shall live more than 120 years (after the period of the flood) and in fact that is the age of Moses when God took him. So in my estimation the very last date would be 1948 + 120 years or at the extreme latest 1967 + 120 years.  Your thoughts?

A. Genesis 6:3 says, Then the LORD said, “My Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal; his days will be a hundred and twenty years.”

I disagree with the opinion that this verse was intended to set man’s life span at 120 years.  It contradicts Psalm 90:10 that places man’s lifespan at 70 years, and Moses was taken because of disobedience, not to establish the length of a lifespan (Num. 27:12-14). Even today when life is often extended medically, it’s extremely rare for anyone to even reach 100 years of age.

I believe it’s more likely that God was giving the people of Noah’s time a 120 year advance warning of the coming judgment we know as the Great Flood.  This view is also consistent with the context of the passage, whereas the 120 year lifespan is not.

Notice the argument discuss’ God rendering  judgment on Noahs Generation.

The Author says 120 years is about Noahs Days and not the Judgement. Why 120? It is in Torah.

It is the Ten Commandments most people forget to read all of:

 And Moses called all Israel, and said unto them, Hear, O Israel, the statutes and judgments which I speak in your ears this day, that ye may learn them, and keep, and do them. 2 The LORD our God made a covenant with us in Horeb. 3 The LORD made not this covenant with our fathers, but with us, even us, who are all of us here alive this day. 4 The LORD talked with you face to face in the mount out of the midst of the fire, 5 (I stood between the LORD and you at that time, to show you the word of the LORD: for ye were afraid by reason of the fire, and went not up into the mount;) saying,

6 I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

7 Thou shalt have none other gods before me.

8 Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth: 9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me, 10 And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.

Notice It is:  visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation If you wanted to argue this:  of them that hate me, You might, but I am afraid it doesn’t take long to identify a sinner to God is one of those that hate him.

Here is the Point: God Judges Sin in Two or Three Generations. How Long is two or three? 120 years is three generations. This allows the poster above to be correct (partially) about Noah’s time.

40 has always been the number of Judgment.

It is the “Number” God uses not to reckon How long a generation is per se, (which is why “some” bible scholars confuse it) but to reckon:

How Long a Time Span is When He Judges a Generation.

Do you see the difference?

If you do, you will figure out fast why Scholars Miss it. They argue a “generation” but forget that when God set a time span for a Generation to be judged for sin, He said So already.

The Time a Generation is judged by God is 4o Years.

Read the Story of the children of Israel wandering in the Wilderness. It is a Story of the End of the Age, but for now, just recall:

God said “That Generation will not enter into the Land, but must perish first, before Israel could enter in. 

How Long?

40 Years.

One Thousand Years: Genesage " What Kind of God?" (Chp 4:6)

One Thousand Years

Genesage

" What Kind of God?"

(Chp 4:6)

The guard told him that was where all the “beheaded were headed.”

He laughed at his own joke slapping Thomas on the back as he escorted him to his cell. Escorted was polite as Tom was fondled and told he would be castrated long before he ever got close to the Pit. It wasn’t a surprise to Tom since all the way into the entrance of the prison was the “Walk of Shame”.

It was shameful what the prisoners were subjected to seeing. Forced to walk by metal stakes every few feet with heads, arms, legs, half torsos, full torsos, body parts, private parts, entrails, brains, all impaled on the spikes for “shock” and “awe” before reaching the “Prison of Decision.”

All who had not been enhanced made a stop at the Prisons. Prison of Decision where a person “Chose Life” or chose death and later, banishment to the “Valley of the Damned”.

“Chose Life” was scrawled in blood on the walls to his cell as he was to await his proclamation or execution.

"Get it, headed, beheaded, well don't lose your head over it, ha."

The Guard repeated over and over again as it obvious the guard was as insane as Thomas felt.

Being brought to the final few steps before entering the Prison, the guard had said;

“I want you to meet my mother”

Tom would never forget that. There with only half a torso, the upper half, was a brutally scarred woman leering at him. She had no lower half. Death at this stage of the Great Tribulation was gone so in some cruel twist of hate, the guard had chain sawed his mother in half. He stuck her on a spit.

He introduced every “Christian” or person with no “mark” to her.

Tom was shocked as the woman told him all this. He had done this to her because, according to the mother, when she found out the Guard had received the “Mark of Allegiance”, the Inoculations, she had said, “I will pray for you” and left him.

He had tracked her down, eventually finding her. When he did death had just been removed, so he cut her in half. As a reward, the guards leadership had placed him in charge of New Arrivals at this Prison of Decision.

He had brought his mother along….,

The guard was also Toms Torturer.

He would look at Tom then caress the back of his hand. Look at Tom then rub the forehead where the guard so proudly portrayed his mark.  Tom was sure that the Mark the guard wore so proudly no doubt added to his instability. Walking away when he had locked Thomas up he cackled as he moved down the corridor,

"Mark you Win, Heads you lose."

And his high pitched laughter only confirmed the man was quite mad.

So many others screaming "for death", were all around him. Why did they wait till they got here? Or worse still the noises they were making at the end of their life. T

hey merely attempted sounding noises that were unintelligible. Even those who did not mutilate themselves but watched simply screamed in prison here in pain and agony.

Too much was too much and the soul of man had already been hardened to what was occurring. Yet those who had not given in yet, they still felt, they still feared, they still screamed.

Or was it some realized a meaning in their life that now that it was ending.

They somehow knew what forever in hell would mean. A gestalt of guiltiness and awareness that they were at fault for the state they were in. A resignation and a sheer terror of what one more day might mean.

He didn't know, nor did he care.

His wife had been carted away. Since she could not walk or crawl they simply dragged her away. The woman he had vowed to love forever in sickness and in health till death do them part, he now hated and despised with abject horror.

He could understand the reason but could not forgive the excuses. She had taken the coward's way out and he hated her for it. He could not bear to seek to understand the blame he knew subliminally was his own.

He had to lash out.

He had to hate. He needed to pick a scapegoat and let the Judas goat go free. Or did it?  It seemed as if the whole world was turned upside down and sideways and everyone simply wailed and moaned.

Everyone was blaming someone till that game played it's last card. The last card and the one holding the hand was the only one left at that table. Last card played and it became a busted flush.

Who could you blame when no is left to play the game except you?

Thousands upon thousands all around the world were equally suffering. Thousands upon thousands all looking for someone to blame. Millions and all equally mad at one unifying influence that had seared their conscience raw.

God.

In his constant nightmare or reality, or was it really a memory? Tom just couldn't recall what they were waiting for…, Why was He still getting worse than falling from a frying pan into a fire?

How many levels of hell were there before there was no more hell below where you were already at?

How much worse could it get?

Better to die and get it over with. Maybe His wife was right.

Yet He lived. He lived and yes that was worse.

Why?

What kind of a God would do this to his own people?

Tom was convinced. It was NOT his kind of God.

No matter what happened he wouldn't bow down, receive any mark, take any gospel or listen to anyone anywhere at any time.

"Oh how deep the depths we see when we truly see we have been deceived."

Tom chanted.               

It all came back as rage fueled again by another respite from despair.

That very fury of Tom's wrath that fed another minute, hour, day for Tom to survive.

Prove All Things knowing that all Prophecy is about Jesus and God revealing His Son…To us..for our…Salvation. We post material that is questionable, objectionable, and in the opinion of the Editor of the Prophetic Perspective, valid to use as God chooses to. Sometimes that is highly suspect as material setting “dates” of the Rapture is, but often these posts, may have pieces that are correct to futher study.

PropheticPerspective: Who is your scapegoat? -Ernest Gregoire

Who is your scapegoat?

  By Ernest Gregoire


People are looking down their collective noses at someone

they perceive to have committed a sin worse than their own!

Merry Minuet

The Kingston Trio sang this song in a live performance recorded for their first in-concert album From the Hungry i LP 1959 This satire was introduced by Orson Bean in the 1953 revue John Murray Anderson 's Almanac. It was originally written by Broadway lyricist Sheldon Harnick,

They're rioting in Africa 
They're starving in Spain,

There's hurricanes in Flo-ri-da, And Texas needs rain.

The whole world is festering with unhappy souls,
The French hate the Germans, the Germans hate the Poles.
Italians hate Yugoslavs, South Africans hate the Dutch,
AND I DON'T LIKE ANYBODY VERY MUCH!!

I am old enough to remember this song when it first came out. And we thought the world was bad then!

People are looking down their collective noses at someone they perceive to have committed a sin worse than their own!

After all, they can’t be the problem! It has to be someone else’s fault!

They see themselves as good people and view others as much more sinful than themselves.

Hey! Nobody’s perfect!

There is a naturalized German man camping in this campground who never misses a chance to berate the dollar, or America, or Americans. I hear the same thing from foreign visitors almost without exception, if I wait for the right opportunity!

Financial trouble is a world wide event. Folks want to blame somebody so why not blame the Americans. They hated us for a long time so this is a good opportunity to heap scorn in those who justly deserve it, so they think! 

Liberal Americans also step right up to the plate to take a swing at America. The guilt ridden liberal left will welcome homosexuality to be taught in our schools in order to relieve themselves of their guilt for sin, whatever favorite flavor it happens to be. They see no problem with homosexuality. This way, they can look down their noses at homosexuals and think, “At least I am not like him.”

 The poor do the same thing, usually in a fit of angry class envy. Their outburst is directed at anyone who has more than they have. They hate people with bigger homes,   bigger cars, and especially SUV’s. These people dutifully pay their tax on the poor, otherwise known as the lottery. They think that rich people are the problem, especially CEO’s.

It can’t be them, the problem must lie elsewhere!

Sin is the problem!

Not the rich, not the poor, not the left, or right politically; but no one wants to think of themselves as sinful, let alone as part of the problem that we face today!

I see the finger of blame pointed in numerous directions from numerous sources. In short, everybody wants a scapegoat!

Who is your scapegoat?

Personally, I have decided to not take part in the finger pointing. This makes me very unpopular with almost everyone! I place the blame squarely where the bible tells me the problem really is!

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the world's rulers, of the darkness of this age, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Therefore take to yourselves the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

(Ephesians 6:12-13 MKJV)

Take a look around you, what are you seeing? Do you see any finger pointing?

Do you hear accusation and blame?

The blame game has become far worse than it has ever been. We in the Church must be vigilant to withstand the darts of “The Evil One.”

Jesus Christ is coming soon. Let us not be caught with words of blame on our lips.

There is more than enough blame to go around. Let us not heap it upon each other’s head!
