Lessons from The Revelation of Jesus Christ

Shalom from Dar es Salaam!

Today we kickstart a verse by verse, chapter by chapter, study on the book by which this blog is named after - Revelation. The full title of this book and its meaning thereof is provided in chapter 1 verse 1 which reads:

The Revelation of Jesus Christ which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John (Revelation 1: 1)

Lets pause for a minute and reflect on this verse. First of all it tells us that this is the Revelation of none other than Jesus Christ. It is also telling us that it was given unto him by God himself. We are told that its main purpose is to show his servants, that is, those who serve God as per Romans 6: 22, things which must shortly come to pass. To that end this Revelation was sent and signified by his angel unto one of his trusted servants, that is, his beloved servant John.

Probably none other than John tells us more about who Jesus is in relation to God. In verse 1 of chapter 1 in the Gospel according to John we thus read:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (John 1: 1)

Later on, in verse 14 of the same chapter of this Gospel, John reveals to us that this Word, that is God, was made flesh (read physical human body). In verse 17 John clearly states that he is referring to Jesus Christ through whom "grace" and "truth" came to us. Elsewhere in 1 John 1: 1 he refers to Jesus as the "Word of life" and, in regard to him, he thus further affirms:

That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that you may also have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ (1 John 1: 3)

Such is the relationship between the givers and bearers of the message of Revelation as described in Revelation 1: 1. It is indeed a message from God, through his Son Jesus, also known as the "Word of life" (1 John 1: 1) and the "Word of God" (Revelation 19: 13), to his servants - you and I - through his beloved servant John as signified by his angel and concerning angels, the Apostle Paul asks rhetorically: "Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?" (Hebrews 1: 14)

In sum this is the Revelation of Jesus Christ to us - to you and me!

  2. The Apostle John wrote in Revelation 1:1, of those thing which must shortly come to pass, meaning the end time events which when they start to occur will rapidly fall in place much lined dominoes topple one upon one another once the first is pushed; the eschatology details from futurism, that is futurist viewpoint, are as follows.

    As is seen in Revelation 6:1-2, Jesus Christ, on October 23, 2013, partially opened, on then again on May 12, 2014, fully opened, the First Seal of the Scroll of End Time Events, thereby releasing the Rider on the White Horse, who has the Bow of Economic Sovereignty, that is the Bow Without Any Arrows, to effect coup d etats world wide, to transfer sovereignty from democratic nation states to fascist regional leaders and bodies, thus destroying the monetary authority of the world central banks, and establishing the economic authority of regional governance in the world’s ten regions, and totalitarian collectivism in mankind’s seven institutions, as is seen in Revelation 13:1-4.

    The death of currencies, and also the failure of credit, that is failure of trust in the monetary policies of the world central banks to continue to provide investment gains and global economic growth on May 13, 2014, comes from the Rider on the White Horse seen in Revelation 6:2, being given a crown, that is the authority to rule over the nations, with the Bow of Economic Sovereignty, calling Interest Rates higher from 2.49%, and is exemplified in the trade lower in Ireland, EIRL, Italy, EWI, Greece, GREK, and the European Financials, EUFN, coming from the strong trade lower in the Euro, FXE, and has commenced destructionism, replacing the former inflationism, as the dynamic of economic activity.

    Through the First Horseman’s endeavors, a One Euro Government, that is a fiscal, banking, and totally fascist economic union, will emerge in the Eurozone; it will be the model for policies of regional governance, and schemes of totalitarian collectivism in all of the world’s ten regions, this being foretold in Revelation 13:1-4, as well as Daniel 2:20-45.

    Largely through the work on the soon to be revealed Sovereign, seen in Revelation 13:5-10, and his economic high priest, the Seignior, seen in Revelation 13:11-18, the EU’s power will become so great, that it will be the preeminent world power.
