The Book Of REVELATIONS!
Revelations about The Book of Revelations.
Here is a short but very interesting study of the Book of Revelations. This article is NOT meant to be a full complete study of the book, oh no! A full study of the Book of Revelations would be approximately 300-800 pages long!
With the help of The Holy Spirit, together we chose a few very interesting scriptures that I pray will bless you greatly!
Scriptures are taken from the Numeric New Testament Bible
I am going to be using the Numeric New Testament bible for all scriptures during our study of Revelations. GOD used Ivan Panin to discover (bible numerics) and to put together The Numeric New Testament. The Numeric New Testament Bible is the closest thing we have to GODS perfect word! So we will be using the Numeric New Testament in this study to find out what GOD truly has said in the Book of Revelations!
I highly recommend all children of GOD who truly care about the truth, to read the Numeric New Testament Bible for all of your serious bible studies.
Revelations 1:4 - JOHN to the seven churches :in :Asia: Grace to you and peace, from him who is and who was and who is to come; and from the seven Spirits :before his :throne;
*Most people do not know that GOD has 7 spirits. I am assuming that these 7 spirits are THE HOLY SPIRIT, or together they make up the HOLY SPIRIT.
Revelations 3:1 - These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of :God, and the seven stars:
*JESUS has the 7 spirits of GOD! - Most likely once again talking about the HOLY SPIRIT. The 7 stars mentioned above are seven angels.
Revelations 4:5 – And seven lamps of fire were burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of :God;
*I wonder why most modern bibles take out the wording of the seven spirits of GOD and change it to say something else.
Revelations 5:6 - And I saw amidst the throne and the four living beings, and amidst the elders, a Lamb standing, as if slain, having seven horns, and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of :God, sent forth into all the earth.
*Again we see that JESUS has the 7 spirits of GOD and that they are sent out into all the earth.
Revelations 1:3 - 3 Blessed who readeth, and who hear the words of the prophecy, and keep the things written therein:
*Wow what a blessing it is to read the book of Revelations. It just seems that GOD pours out more joy into our hearts when we read this book!
Keys of Death and of Hades!!
Revelations 1:18 - I am alive unto the ages of the ages, and have the keys of :death and of :Hades.
*JESUS has been raised from the dead. He is now alive for eternity and He has been given the keys over death and Hades!
Revelations 2:7 – To him that overcometh, to him will I give to eat of the tree of :life, which is in the Paradise of :God.
*We must overcome the sinful carnal nature - aka - (The Flesh Man) inside of us to eat of the tree of life!
Revelations 2:11 - Who overcometh shall in nowise be hurt of the second death.
*We must overcome to escape the Lake of Fire which is the second death!
Revelations 2:17 - To him that overcometh, to him will I give of the hidden :manna, and I will give him a white stone, and upon the stone a new name written, which no one knoweth but he that receiveth it.
*Wow! A new name from GOD that nobody else knows! Praise GOD............
Revelations 2:26 - And who overcometh, and who keepeth my :works unto the end, to him will I give authority over the nations: 27 and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, as the potter’s vessels are broken to shivers; as I also have received of my :Father: 28 and I will give him the morning :star.
Revelations 3:5 - Who overcometh shall thus be arrayed in white garments; and I will in nowise blot his :name out of the book of :life, and I will confess his :name before my :Father, and before his :angels.
*We must also overcome satan and this evil world. Then we will given beautiful white garments in Heaven to wear!
Revelations 3:12 - Who overcometh, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my :God, and he shall go out thence no more: and I will write upon him the name of my :God, and the name of the city of my :God, the new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of the heaven from my :God, and my :new :name.
Revelations 3:21 - Who overcometh, I will give to him to sit down with me in my :throne, as I also overcame, and sat down with my :Father in his :throne.
Revelations 21:7 - Who overcometh shall inherit these things; and I will be God to him, and he shall be son to me.
*JESUS says eight different times in the Book of Revelations that we must be an overcomer! With the grace of GOD and through our faith, we will overcome the sinful carnal nature inside of us. Amen!
JESUS ALSO is the First and the Last!!
Revelations 2:8 - These things saith the first and the last, who became dead, and lived:
*When GOD says he is the first and the last in the book of Revelations, it can be difficult to figure out when the FATHER is speaking, or when HIS son JESUS IS! Here is one example of many that could be given of JESUS speaking!
The seven churches: unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardeis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
Church 1 = Ephesus- JESUS warns them to come on back to their first love!
Church 2 = Smyrna – The LORD had no complaint about this church.
Church 3 – Pergamos - JESUS has multiple complaints about this church
Church 4 – Thyatira – Jezebel is in this church tempting and seducing the holy men of GOD into sinning with her. Those in Thyatira who have not learned from Jezebel JESUS had no complaints about.
Church 5 – Sardis -JESUS tells the people that their works are not perfected before HIS GOD. He also tells them to repent!
Church 6 – Philadelphia – No complaints from JESUS about this church.
Church 7 – Laodicea -These people have grown cold towards the LORD and have left their first love!
*The LORD JESUS revealed to me many years ago that these 7 churches also represent 7 different kinds of Christian people in the world. As you read about the seven churches in Revelations, you will probably see a few different examples of different times in your own walk with JESUS!
Is anyone More Powerful than JESUS!!
Revelations 3:7-8 - who openeth and none shall shut, and who shutteth and none openeth: 8 I know thy :works (lo, I have set before thee a door opened, which none can shut it),
*Praise GOD that JESUS has all authority and power in Heaven, on earth and under the earth!!
JESUS is the Beginning of the Creation of GOD!!
Revelations 3:14 - And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These things saith the Amen, the faithful and the true :witness, the beginning of the creation :of God:
JESUS Corrects and Disciplines those he loves!!
Revelations 3:19 - As many as I love, I reprove and chasten:
*Praise GOD that JESUS corrects and disciplines us, otherwise we would go astray and stay off the path of righteousness!
Revelations 4:4 - And round the throne four and twenty thrones: and upon the thrones I saw four and twenty elders sitting, arrayed in white garments; and upon their :heads golden crowns.
*One of the best guesses I have heard on who the 24 Elders are, would be the 12 sons of Jacob and the 12 Apostles of JESUS. Is it even possible that the Apostle John here was even speaking to himself? That is very interesting to think about.
4 Living Beings!!
Revelations 4:6 - and before the throne, as if a glassy sea like crystal; and midst the throne, and round the throne, four living beings full of eyes before and behind. 7 And the first :living being was like a lion, and the second living being like a calf, and the third living being had a face as of a man, and the fourth living being was like a flying eagle. 8 And the four living beings having each one of them six wings, are full of eyes around and within: and they have no rest day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord :God, :Almighty, who was and who is and who is coming.
*It seems that the special angels that have 6 wings would be the Seraphim angels, and the special angels that have four wings would be Cherubim angels!
GOD has a book!
Revelations 5:1 - And I saw on the right hand of him that sat on the throne a booklet written within and on the back, close sealed with seven seals.
*It would be incredible to have a vision of our FATHER sitting on his throne with the book in his right hand that has the seven seals around it!
The 4 horseman!!
Revelations 6:2 - And I saw, and lo, a white horse, and who sat thereon had a bow; and a crown was given him: and he came forth conquering, and to conquer.
*Most people think this is JESUS here being spoke about, but it is actually the Man Child riding out on the white horse to gain the victory! The real Man Child ministry should be starting very shortly now!
Revelations 6:4 - And another came forth, a red horse: and to the one sitting thereon it was given [him] to take the peace from the earth, and that they should slay one another: and a great sword was given him.
*Have you noticed how many wars and skirmishes are being fought all over the world at this time? Have you also noticed how little peace there is in the world?
Revelations 6:6 - And I saw, and lo, a black horse; and who sat thereon had a balance in his :hand. 6 And I heard as a voice amidst the four living beings saying, A quart of wheat for a shilling, and three quarts of barley for a shilling, and the oil and the wine hurt thou not.
*There is famine even now in many parts of the world. It looks like the USA will be experiencing famine very shortly too!
Revelations 6:8 - And I saw, and lo, a pale horse: and who sat upon him, his name was :Death; and :Hades followed with him. And authority was given them over the fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, and with famine, and with death, and by the beasts of the earth.
The 7 Thunders!!
Revelations 10:3 - the seven thunders spake their :voices. 4 And when the seven thunders spake, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from :heaven saying, Seal what things the seven thunders spake, and write them not.
*Wow, who are the seven thunders? It is going to be great to get into Heaven soon.
A Special Angel!!
Revelations 10:1 - And I saw another strong angel coming down out of :heaven, arrayed with a cloud; and the rainbow was upon his :head, and his :face as the sun, and his :feet as pillars of fire; 2 and he had in his :hand a little book open: and he set his :right :foot upon the sea, and the left upon the earth; 3 and he cried with a great voice, just as a lion roareth:
*Many people once again say this is JESUS, but I do not think so. After studying this, I feel strongly this is a special strong angel! If you are not sure, just read a few sentence past the scriptures above and you will see it cannot be JESUS. GOD calls this angel an angel again just a few verses later.
GOD will wipe away every tear!!
Revelations 7:17 - because the Lamb that is amidst the throne shall shepherd them, and guide them unto fountains of waters of life: and :God shall wipe away every tear from their :eyes.
*How wonderful it will be to be around the throne of JESUS and having GOD wipe away all of our tears!
Revelations 9:1 - And the fifth angel trumped, and I saw a star from :heaven fallen unto the earth: and the key of the pit of the abyss was given him.
*After studying this, I feel this is most likely talking about satan. Who better to have the key to the abyss and to let the demons pour out of the abyss than satan?
Revelations 9:11 - They have over them as king the angel of the abyss: his name in Hebrew is Abaddōn, and in the Greek he hath the name Destroyer.
*The Destroyer is most likely one of satan's top generals. He is the Principality that also ruled over Ancient Rome!
War In Heaven!!
Revelations 12:7 - And war was in the heaven: :Michael and his :angels going to war with the dragon; and the dragon warred and his :angels; 8 and he prevailed not, neither was their :place found anymore in the heaven. 9 And the great :dragon was cast down, the old :serpent, the one called Devil and :Satan, who deceiveth of the whole inhabited earth; he was cast down to the earth, and his :angels were cast down with him.
*Praise GOD that the holy angels are fighting for us and protecting us! Thank you JESUS.
The Beast first mentioned!!
Revelations 13:1 - And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his :horns ten diadems, and upon his :heads names of blasphemy.
*Obviously this is not to be taken literally. There will be NO seven headed monster coming up out of the Pacific ocean.
The False Prophet mentioned!!
Revelations 13:11 - And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12 And he exerciseth all the authority of the first beast in his sight. And he maketh the earth and them that dwell therein to worship the first :beast, whose :stroke of :death was healed.
*He has two horns like a lamb, but he speaks like a dragon. Here The False Prophet is first mentioned.
(The False Prophet is the head of the spiritual harlot)!
The Mark of The Beast!!
Revelations 13:16 - And he causeth all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bond, that they give them a mark on their :right :hand, or upon their :forehead; 17 and that no one be able to buy or sell, save who hath the mark, the name of the beast or the number of his :name.
*Does GOD hate tattoos? There must be more meaning to taking the Mark of the Beast than merely having a tattoo on our right hand or forehead.
The LAMB and HIS 144,000!!
Revelations 14:1 - And I saw, and lo, the Lamb standing on the mount Zion, and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand, having his :name, and the name of his :Father, written on their :foreheads.
*Name in the Greek language means (Nature, Character & Authority). These 144,000 men will be walking in the nature, character and authority of GOD.
(As of 1-15-2011 – The Man Child ministry is just about to begin here on earth. Yes these 144,000 people are already alive right now)!
An Angel Flying in the Sky Preaching!!
Revelations 14:6 - And I saw another angel flying in mid heaven, having an eternal gospel to proclaim over the earth-dwellers, and over every nation and tribe and tongue and people; 7 saying with a great voice, Fear :God, and give him glory; for the hour of his :judgment is come: and worship him that made the heaven and the earth and sea and fountains of waters.
*We have going to have holy angels flying around preaching to us. Praise GOD for loving us so much, he will even have his other children the angels preaching to us too.
A Second Angel Flying in the Sky Preaching!!
Revelations 14:8 - And another, second angel, followed, saying, Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, that hath made all the nations to drink of the wine of the wrath of her :fornication.
*This angel is flying around preaching the destruction of the USA.
It is Extremely possible that the earth will get slammed by an object or objects from space!
Read the first few trumpet judgments.
A Third Angel Flying in the Sky Preaching!!
Revelations 14:9 - And another, third angel, followed them, saying with a great voice, If any worshipeth the beast and his :image, and receiveth a mark on his :forehead, or upon his :hand, 10 he also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of :God, mingled unmixed in the cup of his :anger;
*The third holy angel here is warning people NOT take the Mark of the Beast, and to NOT worship the beast or his image.
We will have harps to play!!
Revelations 15:2 - And I saw as if a glassy sea mingled with fire; and those victorious from the beast and from his image and from the number of his :name, standing by the glassy sea, having harps of :God.
*Can you imagine listening to the multitudes of holy people playing the harps? Wow!
Revelations 16:18 - and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunders; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so great an earthquake, so mighty.
*This earthquake should happen at the end of the seven year tribulation.
The Woman Sitting on The Scarlet Beast!!
Revelations 17:1 - And one out of the seven angels that had the seven bowls came and spake with me, saying, Hither, I will show thee the judgment of the great :harlot that sitteth upon many waters; 2 with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the dwellers on the earth were made drunken with the wine of her :fornication. 3 And he carried me away in Spirit into a wilderness: and I saw a woman sitting upon a scarlet beast, full of names of blasphemy, he having seven heads and ten horns.
*The woman sitting on the beast can symbolize the USA quite well! She also symbolizes apostate Christianity. So by example, we have the USA & apostate Christianity sitting on the Beast!
(The False Prophet is the head of the spiritual harlot)!
(The United States and The United Nations would be the head of the physical harlot).
The USA will be completely destroyed around the end of the seven year tribulation.
Mystery Babylon The Great – Mother of All Harlots!
Revelations 17:5 - and upon her :forehead a name written, a mystery, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF THE HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
*Who better fills the description of (Babylon the Great) better than the USA!
The LAMB is LORD of lords and KING of kings!!
Revelations 17:14 - These shall war against the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them, for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings;
Revelations 17:16 - And the ten horns which thou sawest, and the beast, these shall hate the harlot, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her :flesh, and shall burn her utterly with fire.
*The USA will be completely destroyed at the end of the seven year tribulation, possibly by a surprise nuclear attack!
An Exceptionally Powerful Angel Here, And The Coming Destruction of The USA!!
Revelations 18:1 - After these things I saw another angel coming down out of :heaven, having great authority; and the earth was lightened with his :glory. 2 And he cried with a mighty voice, saying, Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, and is become a habitation of demons, and prison of every unclean spirit, and prison of every unclean and hateful bird.
*This is how GOD describes HIS thoughts about how evil the USA is.
A Great Angels talks about the Destruction of The USA!!
Revelations 18:21- And one strong angel took up a stone as if a great millstone and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with a mighty rush shall Babylon, the great city, be cast down, and shall be found no more at all.
*The USA will be completely destroyed and will never exist again.
The Wedding Supper of The LAMB!!
Revelations 19:7 - Let us rejoice and be exceeding glad, and we will give him the glory: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his :wife hath made herself ready. 8 And it was given her that she array herself in fine linen bright, pure: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. 9 And he saith to me, Write, Blessed those bidden to the marriage supper of the Lamb.
*We will be marrying JESUS in Heaven. So right now is our romantic courtship with our LORD and KING! Get your romance going with JESUS and be super blessed.
JESUS On The White Horse – Called Faithful & True!!
Revelations 19:11 - And I saw the heaven opened; and lo, a white horse, and he that sat thereon is called Faithful and True;

*GOD has HIGHLY EXALTED JESUS! Wonderful things are even written on HIS clothing!
The Beast & False Prophet Sent to The Lake of Fire!!
Revelations 19:20 - And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought the signs in his sight, wherewith he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast and them that worshiped his :image: they two were cast alive into the lake of :fire that burneth with brimstone:
*One could say that GOD could of done this a long time ago quite easily in fact. But that was NOT GODS plan!
A Single Angel Comes Down out of Heaven to Lock Up Satan for A 1000 Years!!
Revelations 20:1 - And I saw an angel coming down out of the heaven, having the key of the abyss and a great chain over his :hand. 2 And he laid hold on the dragon, the old :serpent, who is the Devil and :Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, 3 and cast him into the abyss, and shut it, and sealed it over him, that he should deceive the nations no more, until the thousand years should be finished:

Once again, GOD could of done this a long time ago if GOD wanted to. But that was NOT GODS plan!

The New Heaven & New Earth!!

*It is very dangerous to be beyond the bible in our teachings or preachings, yet it is also dangerous to take scriptures or bible principals out of the bible. It is safest for us to simply speak on exactly what the bible says and try not to change it in anyway!
Did you notice we can even lose our salvation by changing what the bible says?
Praise GOD! At the end of the book of Revelations, his entire 6000+ year plan has un folded and it is now being completed.
GOD created billions/TRILLIONS of angels knowing full well ahead of time that many of them would turn evil.
GOD knew long before he created the earth that these evil angels were needed to administer the curse, to kill, steal and destroy, to test and tempt, to be used as vessels of dis honor, and to raise up sons and daughters of GOD by helping us to crucify our flesh!
GOD knew that Adam and his wife Eve would fall into temptation in the Garden of Eden even before he created the earth.
GOD knew that he would sacrifice his son JESUS on the cross to pay for our filthy sins. By doing so, making us right with GOD again!
GOD knew that the early civilizations would have to be destroyed with a world wide flood.
GOD knew the exact day that HIS SON JESUS would enter into the baby and be born.
GOD knew you and loved you even before he created the earth.
Then JESUS died for you on the cross, this is how much GOD loves you. Even though JESUS never sinned, he willingly gave up his life for you and for your terrible sins, so you could now repent your sins and live with him in Heaven for all of eternity!
Now that is what I call true love!!!
JESUS loves you and he would love to hear from you more and more each day because you are precious to him.
We will be marrying JESUS shortly at the Wedding Supper of The LAMB.
Lets not wait till then.
Lets make JESUS the love of our lives right now the best we can with the grace that GOD gives us.
Blessed are those who worship JESUS now!
Blessed are those who pray to the LORD and spend time with him now.
Blessed are those who study the bible now.
Lets make sure that all of us reading this article are at the Wedding Supper of The LAMB!!!
I pray I will see you there shortly.
Love, your servant Garrett
