You will lift up your eyes being in torment
Who is Jesus Christ really? And what did He really say about your Soul?
The Revelation of Jesus Christ is about God's Restitution of all things; His reclamation, repair and renewal of His Creation:
A large part of this is God taking vengeance on an unbelieving world! In the beginning, His Salt was savory; However in the end, His Salt of the Earth has lost its savor and is therefore good for nothing. The Revelation is the finishing or completion of the Mystery of God and the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. God reclaims His possession from Satan, whom He gave control of as the "god" of this world at Christ's birth and makes His Creation as He originally intended before sin entered in the world and cursed it.
**Keep in mind, that there can be no absolute certainty that the correlations I make on these pages to current world events are 100% accurate. There are no prophets in existence since the completion of God's Written Word in the first century nor does the Lord give additional revelation to any person since then. Please see our study on I Corinthians for further information. Additional information on this can also be found at the bottom of this page.
Had our Lord intended that the events at the end of the world were to be easily recognized by the Godless He would have laid out the sequences of events and explained the symbolism plainly in one text of Scripture. After years of study and total reliance upon the Spirit I have come to realize the futility of past self proclaimed "prophets" and "date setters". It is clearly obvious to me now that these end days prophecies were only intended for the end days "church". It would be impossible for anyone to connect these dots even three years ago much less over the last 1900 years. Only the pure in heart seeking God's Truth with no other agenda will be shown it by His Spirit. The end days mystery of sequence cannot be arrived at intellectually. His Word has to be in your heart, your daily bread to see the picture at the level needed to understand the picture. Then and only then will the Holy Spirit connect the dots of current world events to these passages.
Since The Revelation is the completion of all things It is no mystery then that the number seven appears throughout the Revelation. Understand that and you will understand that most of the Revelation is about the last Seven Years of God's ruined Creation and His Reclamation and Restitution of It. It is the continuation of the Old Testament Prophet Daniel's visions. It is the details of Daniel's 70th Week. The Revelation is completion which explains the frequent use of the number seven throughout this last Book of God's Word. The Revelation is the culmination of God's Work with His Creation before He starts anew.
Among the most confusing of false teachings over the centuries has been the misguided idea that Daniel's 70th week and "the great tribulation" are the same thing. Scripture alone teaches us clearly that what God calls the "Great Tribulation" is the "time of Jacob's trouble" and lasts 42 months, not seven years. Although the "Great Tribulation" is the last half of Daniel's 70th week they are not the same thing. Once this is realized then a clear understanding of what God means by a pre-tribulation evacuation or catching away will come to mind.
There is no pre-Daniel's 70th week "catching away" (rapture) or seven years before our Lord's Return.
BUT there is a pre-Great Tribulation "catching away" of His final few remaining church age believers 3.5 years or 42 months before our Lord's physical Return to reclaim His possession. God has promised His last days Church that they are not appointed to feel His Wrath and they won't.
But our Lord was very clear in His Olivet Discourse that His last days Church will suffer Satan's Wrath and they will suffer it harshly during the first 3.5 years of Daniel's 70th week.
The first half is the Beginnings of Sorrows for Jesus' followers. It is Satan's wrath against us that causes the few remaining to be evacuated and God's Wrath to be poured out. Among the "final straws" of God's longsuffering as it were.
Also, please don't confuse the pampered lives the religious have in the U.S. with the world. Most of the world's true Christians have been and are being imprisoned and martyred as we speak. Many are already suffering Satan's wrath throughout the world it just hasn't blow sky high in the U.S. or EU yet. It will and it will very soon after America is dissolved and it's remaining citizens are parceled out with it's lands and assets.
Keep your eyes open, the weeding out of our Lord's coming Kingdom intensifies here in the U.S. as it has been in many parts of the world.
Since it is the culmination of His Work and His Word we have no chance of understanding the Revelation without cross referencing every "jot and tittle" with all the other Books of God's Word and WITHIN the Book of the Revelation Itself. Clarity can only be imagined by complete research of "word", "phrase", sentence and event correlations with all the Books of the Bible.
Accurate interpretation is dependent upon the realization that the Revelation provides both summary descriptions of events and later specific descriptions of the same events that unfold in the last Seven Years. One of the most significant examples of this is that the Seals which are summarized highlights of the last seven years before His Triumphant Return.
As with much of God's Word throughout the Old and New Testaments our Lord provides us different versions from different views of the same events or prophesies. These versions share the same subject and timeline or sequence but reveal different types of information about those timelines or sequences and usually with additional or differing characters. This is clearly seen in Daniel as well as the major Prophets. Indeed, this key understanding and precedence God has set throughout His Written Word and must be considered and applied when discerning His Prophetical Truth. Other examples to consider are His four Gospel Books. Four entire Books which portray the same timeline in four different views with slightly differing characters and events that occur. Another revealing example of God's "storyboards" are the Books of Moses and the repetitions of the same sequences from different angles and differing characters but always portraying the same chronological timeline.
We must discern through His Spirit when one version or vision has ended and when the next begins when studying Prophesies.
The events briefly described as the Seals are unloosed are not all separate events from the rest of Revelation. For instance: If the sixth seal devastates the entire planet as it is described to showing our Lord's Triumphant return as it clearly does than what is left to be destroyed afterwards? No friends, the seals are summarized highlights of the last seven years.
The first four seals give us a table of contents or order of sequence of the first half of the last seven years, ending with the abomination in the Temple and the catching away of God's remnant of church age saints. These first four Seals are summarized highlights of both our Lord's Prophecies in His Gospels and those in the Epistles such as II Thessalonians. These first four Seals highlight the beginnings of sorrows for all humanity but narrows down quickly to our Lord's followers near the mid point of the last seven years. This first half is the tribulation of the saints (by Satan, not God) who must endure until their deaths or evacuation for His Namesake. The 4th Seal summarizes also the Trumpet announcements of His Creation crumbling under the extreme nature and weather manipulations of the world's corrupt governments and richest men.
Note also that once the first seal is loosed, it begins a chain reaction causing the next Seal to be loosed and so on. The 5th Seal is the result of the extreme persecutions of His church age saints and the 6th Seal results from mankind's complete falling away from His Truth. It shows us the conclusion of God's Wrath against the synagogue of satan and all nations whom took in their diaspora since their national rejection of the Lord Jesus Christ some 2000 years ago. The 7th Seal unloosed begins the details of the rest of The Revelation starting at the time of the seven Trumpet calamities.
The key to understanding is the Spirit’s guidance in discerning the difference and resisting the temptation to separate these events as unrelated to each other. Also, please put out of your heart and minds all your previous indoctrination in prophecy. Study independent of what you have been taught or told previously. If you do this then (examples) like the correlation between Jesus' Beginnings of sorrows and the four horsemen or the correlations of power given the two witnesses and God's Vials of Wrath will become commonplace for you.
The Revelation is not presented by God in chronological order within it's chapters but is presented in many ways just as the Old Testament Prophetical Books and Our Lord's descriptions given in His Gospels were. Future events were given to those Prophets in mingled order with clues, hints and helps for interpretation. God gave the Apostle John the vision as a storyboard of what was, what is and what is to come. Some outlined or summarized and some in specific detail but few in chronological order.
So, if the prophets and our Lord never presented the future events that will transpire on the earth in chronological order why would we expect His Revelation to be presented in chronological order? Search the Old Testament prophets for yourself and you will see these out of chronological order visions given these prophets. In many instances our Lord's first advent is presented in visions later in the Prophetical Books than His Second advent.
In the Book of Revelation itself, you must realize that same tendency. What men mistake for sequence of events is actually the order of the vision given John only. Similarly, neither our Lord nor the Prophets prophesied in chronological order, no mention is ever made that the Revelation is laid out in a time sequence. Our Lord's intent has always been for us to cross reference His Word to find the sequence of events. This can only be done accurately by thorough research into His Word's, phrases, sentences and event similarities, correlations, repetitions, omissions, patterns of behavior, trends or activity.
Example: The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
Note this passage in Revelation 17 above: Our Lord gives John this portion of his vision in the past, present and future all within one verse.
The Day of the Lord begins the Sabbath Day of rest during the 7000 year “week” of creation.
"that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day".
To review, there are three last days of a thousand years each. They began running at the first coming. We are near the close of the two day period of 2,000 years, which apparently began running either at the start or end of Jesus' earthly ministry and the third day will begin soon, when Hosea prophesied God will revive us so we can live in His presence (the Millennial Kingdom).
This clearly demonstrates that the end days will see no revival from God; it is way too late for that and world has progressed into full rebellion against God. REVIVAL will come only after God's Wrath destroys the wicked at His Second Coming in Power and Glory.
This matches the pattern of the Seven Biblical Feasts (the times and seasons), to which the first and second coming align, the pattern of the seven days of creation (and 7,000-year duration of the Creation Story) and the pattern of the seven "day" week that always ends with the Sabbath. The Millennial Kingdom is the Sabbath Day or last 1000 years of Creation's 7,000-year duration.
With this in mind you should consider that the events in Revelation up until the Vials occur BOTH by Satan's design through man and naturally based on God's Timetable and His foreknowledge. As the Creator of time and the soon Terminator of time one must logically reason that He is in no way bound by time, that He lives outside of time and can see everything that has and will happen everywhere at any time, all the time.
The point being is that God does not cause the tribulation to occur He just knows it will and He knows His Wrath is coming half way through it at the Abomination of Desolation because of His foreknowledge and life outside of time.
To illustrate: When He made Creation in 6 days and rested on the 7th, He knew the ending through foreknowledge and life outside of time. He saw the affects of man's pride and greed on it and He knew it would crumble near the end of the 6th Millennia.
God is not subject to time because God made time for mankind. Think of a storyboard for a movie. If you make a storyboard, you can see all the the timelines in the movie that you've put on the board. You can jump between the middle timeline, the start and the end, and anywhere in-between as much as you want. You are not subject to the timeline that is in the storyboard. That is how God is in relation to time.
Instead of automatically categorizing all verses and passages as separate events....match them to each other and correlate them according to the rest of His Revelation and how it matches Old and New Testament prophecies.
Most who attempt interpretation of Revelation are crippled from the onset by men's "lenses" of interpretation. They cannot distinguish the forest (strategic view of Scripture) for the trees (individual passages in Revelation).
Look at it this way, are there really going to be nearly the same types of catastrophic events repeatedly or is God trying to give us clues that these are the same events out of order for us to seek His Face on? Some generalized and others passages far more specific BUT THEY ARE THE SAME EVENTS.
God’s warnings at the end of this Book are the two KEYS to obtaining a more accurate interpretation of the Revelation of Jesus Christ.
Our Lord provided us these warnings as steadfast RULES of true interpretation. Oddly, most teachers of prophecy ignore these warnings entirely.
In reality, these warnings were not heeded by the inventors and propagators of every known prophetical "system" of belief. Such as: Pre-Millennialism; Pre-Tribulationism; Mid-Tribulationism; Post-Tribulationism; Amillennialism; Historicism; Preterism, Etc.
Ezekiel 13: 1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the LORD;
3 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!
These warnings were given by the Lord because of the myriad of false Christs; false teachings of Christ, denominations, nicolaitans (ruler-ship, mammon and merchandising) and “isms” that multiply and abound as the time gets closer. WHY? Because Satan knows the closer that the time of the end gets, the sooner his own judgment will be executed. He is intensifying his efforts to block Truth and Heaven from as many as he can using what he has always used, lies & deception. He will not enter into Heaven again and he intends to PREVENT as many people as possible from entering in:
Revelation 22: 18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
The "systems" of belief or ism's mentioned above in this introduction are all the inventions of men comparing Spiritual with carnal and carnal with Spiritual. It is my firm belief that the warnings our Lord gives at the end of the Book of the Revelation are specifically targeting these "systems" which men have invented, promoted and made merchandise of. Most importantly which have "added unto" and "take away" from the Words of the Book of this Prophecy.
The studies which follow this introduction will strive to interpret the Book of Revelation by exposition comparing Spiritual with Spiritual and Scripture with Scripture. These will be Chapter by Chapter, passage by passage and line by line interpretations with the goal of exposing what God's truly means without regard to any man, any sect, any camp, any denomination and certainly any "system" of belief.
These studies were compiled by the comparing and contrasting the Old Testament prophetical Books with the Four Gospels, the body of the New Testament and the Revelation.
This is how the dots connect. Little of Revelation is written in Chronological order for a reason. God wants only those whom truly seek His Face through importunity to understand His prophetic revelations. By God's own Principles does He make the sighted blind and blind to see by pureness of heart toward Him.
Isaiah 28: 9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.
10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
There will be no emotional defense of any "system" of belief in these studies. In fact, there will be little mention of any "system" of belief except when reproof is specifically provided and necessary. The only goal of these studies is to provide you the evidence of what may likely transpire in the near future. This evidence will be provided through indisputable passages and correlation of passages as well as hints and clear clues which God gives us throughout the Old and New Testaments without breaking their contexts in order to "add to" or "take away from" the Revelation of Jesus Christ.
Keep in mind, that there will be no certainty provided by me. Any person who presents their interpretations of prophecy as certain or dogmatic are undoubtedly false teachers themselves.
God's Word is complete, there can't be any more prophecy. What are these men and women prophesying about when God has no more Words to give them or anyone?
"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, GOD SHALL ADD UNTO HIM THE PLAGUES THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, GOD SHALL TAKE AWAY HIS PART OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book." Revelation 22:18-19
Isn't it amazing that these false prophets reject God's warning? That they don't fear God's GUARANTEED punishment for doing so? His Words are Complete. There isn't anything more. There can't be any more prophecy. Don't try to add any words (visions, dreams) nor attempt to take away or change any of the Words that He gave us.
The Lord provided us throughout the Old Testament and the NEW many mentions of the last days and we are to connect the dots using Scripture only and not the fables of men, comparing Spiritual only with Spiritual and never carnal, worldly or according to the writings of men. "Here a little, and there a little": The studies that follow are a Scriptural comparison of the Revelation to the Old Testament; The Revelation to the New Testament and the Revelation to the Revelation Itself without ANY outside input, commentary or plagiarized speculations of men.
2 Peter 1: 20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
I Corinthians 2:  Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
You read the evidence provided, study it for yourselves and come to your own understanding by the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.
The following Chapter studies are summarized on the Revelation Event Sequence page.
**I make no claims whatsoever of being a prophet or having some supernatural gift of the early church that no longer exists. I don't get visions or dreams. I absolutely admit that I created these sequences of events outlined on these Times and Seasons pages by watching very closely current events and how they relate within the Books of Daniel, Revelation and the Gospels. These conclusions also factor in cross referencing of all the major Old Testament Prophetical Books (please view all the reference links for evidence). I am also 100% convinced that only those who follow Christ in Spirit and in Truth alive in the end will be able to see that they are in the end. If I am convinced than I must warn others. This is God's Will for us all. I don't have the luxury of claiming prophet status or visions or gifts to cover my inconsistencies. So I carefully lay out why I believe this is happening with contextual Scriptural evidence that prove no inconsistencies exist. All the dots are there to connect for any whom seek the Lord with a pure heart. What you do with it is of your own free will. I just warn to be weary of the probabilities laid out.
Prophets were sent by God in the earlier ages of man to give His Words to man. God's complete Revelation to man has been finished and provided to us with His Bible and God has made it clear that we will receive no further Revelation from Him. He left us His Spirit on earth to show all men His Truth in His completed Word. All the dots are there to connect for any whom seek Him with a pure heart.
