Apostel John has in decades been principal elder of the christian church i Efesus, Asia Minor. After the destruction of Jerusalem and its third temple in 70 A.C. the christian churches in Antioch and in the cities of Asia Minor and in Greece are under severe persecutions from the roman authorities. The emperors of the Roman Empire living in Rome demands, that all inhabitants of The Roman Empire must worship the Roman Emperor as God. The christians refuge to do that, and openly preach and teach in public, that there is only One Almighty God –  God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob revealed through The Holy Bible and the testimony of life and teaching of the Son of God and the Son of Man JESUS CHRIST, his sacrificing death on Calvary Cross, his resurrection of the grave, his ascension and through the out pouring of The Holy Spirit upon the disciples on the Day of Pentecost – ONE TRUE ALMIGHTY GOD: GOD the FATHER, GOD the SON and GOD the HOLY SPIRIT, Acts 2,1-47.

 

Revelation – Apocalypse of Jesus Christ is a prophetic book, which reveals what HAS happen, what happen JUST NOW and what WILL happen in the FUTURE.

Revelation is a book, which reveals Jesus Christ as the Lamb Slain sitting on God the Father´s right hand on the Throne of God in Heaven, Revelation 7,9-17.

Revelation is a book, which reveals the church of Jesus Christ – the Bride of Jesus Christ with its sufferings through all END TIME from the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Day of Pentecost to the Ascension of believers – The Rapture, 1. Thessalonians 4,13-18 and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ as  “-The Rider on the White Horse”, Revelation 19,11-21.

Revelation is a book, which reveals Jesus Christ´s victory over God´s opponent Satan, the Devil and the fallen angels (Revelation 12,7-12;)  and God´s FINAL JUDGMENT, Revelation 20, 7-15).

Revelation is a book, which reveals The NEW HEAVEN, THE NEW EARTH, THE NEW JERUSALEM and the WATER of LIFE and the free ADMISSION to the TREE of LIFE, Revelation 21,1-8 and 22,1-21) as promised by GOD  in Genesis 2,16-17 and 3,22-24.

To understand and interpret Revelation – Apocalypse of Jesus Christ needs knowledge, absorption, prayer and revelation by The Holy Spirit, which is the Spirit of Jesu Christ – The Spirit of God.

 

Hermeneutic is the teaching of the true interpretation of the Bible. Through the history of the church there are 3 most general used methods:

The literal, the historic and the metaphorical method.

In the following I will interpret the text in the Bible in accordance to the literal-historic context, in which the text was written in the original language and from the best translations word to word from the original hebrew and greek text.

Every bible verse must be interpret out from the context and out from other relevant bible verses in Old and New Testament of the Bible. Shortly said: Bible verses interpret other bible verses – all bible verses in Old and New Testament constitute a context, which is the true and whole revelation of The Word of God – THE WORD which became flesh, See John 1,1-3:-“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning”.

Revelation – Apocalypse of Jesus Christ can only be understood through a knowledge of the prophetic books in Old Testament of the Bible among others: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Daniel, Jeremiah, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Psalms, Zechariah, Joel and Haggai.

 

Revelation – Apocalypse of Jesus Christ stands for COMPLETENESS – THE VICTORY AND TRIUMPH OF THE LAMB.

On the Road to Emmaus:

The resurrected Jesus Christ in his glorified body meet two of his disciples on the road to Emmaus, See Luke 24,13-35:

-“Now that same day two of them are going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem. They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them, but they were kept from recognizing him. He asked them, ” What are you discussing together as you walk along?” (Luke 24,13-17a),

-“He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all tha the prophets have spoken! Did not the Christ have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?” And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself. (Luke, 24,25-27).

 

The resurrected Jesus and his disciples (Luke 24,33-53):

-“They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven and those with them, assembled together and saying, “It is true! The Lord has risen and has appeared to Simon.” Then the two told what had happened on the way, and how Jesus was recognized by them when he broke the bread. While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” (Luke 24,33-37).

-“He said to them,”This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, The Prophets and the Psalms”. Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. He told them, “This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning in Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. I am going to send you what my Father have promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from the high.” (Luke 24,44-49).

 

The Ascension (Luke 24,50-53):

-“When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed them. While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven. Then they worshipped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy. And they stayed continually at the temple, praising God”. (Luke 24,50-53).

This is the beginning  of fulfillment of the word of Jesus, (Matthew 28,18-20):

-“The Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

7 a. VISION: Revelation 19,1-21  

The Rapture (The Ascension), the wedding supper of the Lamb in Heaven and The second coming of Jesus Christ: the Rider on the White Horse:

The Rapture of the bride of Jesus Christ and

The wedding supper of the Lamb in heaven 19,1-10,

The second coming of Jesus Christ: the Rider on the White Horse, Revelation 19,11-21.

 

The Rapture (The Ascension) of The Bride of Jesus Christ and The Wedding of the Lamb has come (Revelation 19,7.9):

-“In the LORD I take refuge. How then can you say to me: Flee like a bird  to your maintain. For look, the wicked bend their bows; they set their arrows against the strings to shoot the shadows at the upright in heart. Then the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?” The LORD is in his holy temple; the LORD is on his heavenly throne. He observes the sons of men; his eyes examine them. The LORD examines the righteous, but the wicked and those who love violence his soul hates. On the wicked he will rain fiery coals and burning sulphur; a scorching wind will be their lot. For The LORD is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face”, Psalm 11,1-7.

-“But the LORD is in his holy temple; let the earth be silent before him”, Habakkuk,2,20.

A Sabbath rest for the People of God, Hebrews 4,1-13:

-“Therefore God again set a certain day, calling it Today, when a long time later spoke through David, as was said before “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.” For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day. There remains, then, a Sabbath rest for the people of God; For anyone who enters God´s rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no-one will fall by following their example of disobedience, Hebrews 4,7-11.

The BRIDE of Jesus Christ: -“Blessed are this who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb, Revelation 19,9 and 19,6-8:

 

Revelation 7, 1-17:

 

144.000 Sealed, Revelation 7, 1-8:

-“After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree. Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea: “Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.” Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel. From the tribe of Judah 12,000 were sealed, from the tribe of Reuben 12,000, from the tribe of Gad 12,000,  from the tribe of Asher 12,000, from the tribe of Naphtali 12,000, from the tribe of Manasseh 12,000, from the tribe of Simeon 12,000, from the tribe of Levi 12,000, from the tribe of Issachar 12,000, from the tribe of Zebulun 12,000, from the tribe of Joseph 12,000, from the tribe of Benjamin 12,000″.

144.000 sealed is 12 (complete number) x 12 (complete number) x 1000: This is a symbolic metaphor of all true believers in all times: saved under the Old Covenant (The Law -Torah) and all saved under the New Covenant by the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ on Calvary Cross – He is the Lamb Slain. Se also Revelation 14,1: -“Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb standing on mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father´s name written on theirs foreheads.”

Revelation 7,9-17:

 

The Great Multitude in White Robes:

– “After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying: “Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!” Then one of the elders asked me, “These in white robes—who are they, and where did they come from?” I answered, “Sir, you know.” And he said, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.  Therefore, “they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will shelter them with his presence. Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat down on them,’nor any scorching heat. For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; ‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes”, Revelation 7,9-17.

The Harvest of the Earth, Revelation 14,14-20:

-” I looked, and there before me was a white cloud, and seated on the cloud one “like a son of man” with a crown of gold on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, ” Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe”, So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested”, Revelation 14,14-16.

 

Rapture (Ascension) of The Body of Christ:

It is events that will occur in this near future BEFORE and close to the time named THE GREAT TRIBULATION TIME – the last  seven years of the seventy “weeks” mentioned by Daniel (seven years: 3,5+3,5 years), Daniel 9,20-27.

Rapture (Ascension) of The Body of Christ – all true christians believers, who have received Jesus Christ as their personal Savour and Lord, Revelation 11,12 and 1. Thessalonians 4,15-18:

-“Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on”, Revelation 11,12.

-“According to the Lord´s own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left to the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of an archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord for ever. Therefore encourage each other with these words”, 1.Thessalonians 4,15-18.

 

BEFORE the Big Tribulation time of 7 years Jesus Christ in Glory – Son of Man and Son of God will come in the sky to bring up to Heaven His Bride – all true believers of His Death on Calvary Cross for all SIN of ALL mankind through ALL times, His Resurrection on the third day and His Ascension to Heaven to the Throne of God The Father.

TOGETHER with all the saved through ALL history all saved through their consciousness of faith in God before the Law (Torah), all saved under the Law of Moses and all saved through the the sacrifice of the blood of Jesus Christ on Calvary Cross, who ALL are in Heaven in their soul and spirit  – and all  true believers in the near future time of the coming Rapture:

They are ALL  THE BRIDE of JESUS CHRIST, who He had through all the time of Grace since Pentecost invited and prepared through holiness to join HIM in Heaven:

-“For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready“, Revelation 19,7b,

-“Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!”, Revelation 19,9.

Watchfulness:

-” Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning, like men waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him. It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. I tell you the truth, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them. It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the second or third watch of the night.  (—) You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him, ” Luke 12, 35-40.

-“Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back – wether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the cock crows, or at dawn. If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. What I say to you, I say to everyone: Watch!”, Mark 13,35-37.

The Parable of the Ten Virgins, Matthew 25,1-13:

-“At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to met the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but dis not take any oil with them. The wise, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep. At midnight the cry rand out: “Here´s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!”, Matthew 25,1-6.

 

The Fall of Babylon, Revelation 18,1-24 – “Come out of her my people”, Rev. 18,4

– ” After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. Her had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. With a mighty voice he shouted:

–  Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has come a home for demons and a haunt for every evil spirit, a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird. For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries”, Revelation 18,1-2.

– ” Then I heard another voice from heaven say:

– Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will nor receive any of her plagues; for her sins are pilled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes. Give back to her as she has given; pay her back  double for what she has done. Mix her a double portion from her own cup. Give her as much torture and grief as the glory and luxury she gave herself. In her heart she boasts, “I sit as queen; I am not a widow, and I will never mourn”. Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning and famine. She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her”, Revelation 18,4-8.

-“The light of a lamp will never shine in you again. The voice of bridegroom and bride will never be heard in you again. Your merchants were the world´s great men. By your magic spell all nations were led astray. In her was found the blood of prophets and the saints, and of all who have been killed on the earth“, Revelation 18,23-24.

 

SUMMARY of The Woman on the Beast, Revelation 17,1-18:

 

-“With her the kings of the earth committed adultery and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with wine of her adulteries”, Revelation 17,2.

-“The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth“, Revelation 17,18.

-“Nevertheless I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who call herself a prophetess. By her teaching she misleads my servants into swxual immorality and eating of food sacrificed to idols. I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling, “To the church of Thyatira, Revelation 2,20-21.

 

Through all church history – Time of The Holy Spirit/ Time of Grace/ The Last Time/ The Tribulation Time from Pentecost until to day the Devil (Dragon) and his demons have attacked  all christian congregations of the entire world with false doctrines and false prophets.

All those false doctrine preached and excessed inside the churches have deceived millions of true believers not to understand the free sacrifice of Jesus on Calvary Cross, where The Son of Man and The Son of God Jesus Christ paid the  ultimate PRICE  – The Redemption Price of all SIN of All Mankind and not to understand the outpouring of The Holy Spirit on Pentecost.

This false doctrines through all church history have stopped millions of true christians believers to enter into the the true experience of BE BORN AGAIN (John 3,1-21) – the indwelling of The Holy Spirit in  the saved man/woman soul, body and spirit and BE BAPTISED by The Holy Spirit with sign of speaking in other tongues with the power, faith and grace to living a holy and victorious life.

False doctrines of teaching and preaching inside christians congregations influenced by the Devil (Beast) and demons and through The Woman on the Beast have since Pentecost (See letters to the seven churches, Revelation chapters 2-3) prevent true christians believers to understand and personal receive:

  1.  JUSTIFICATION – BE BORN AGAIN, this is a personal encounter with Jesus Christ, YOUR SALVATION, where you repent from your sins and sinful life and invite Jesus Christ into your heart (Your POSITION IN CHRIST) and
  2. SANCTIFICATION – a holy PROCESS inside your body, soul and spirit (1. Thessalonians 5,23) – your entire personality the rest of your life  (Your CONDITION IN CHRIST) until the RESURRECTION in HEAVEN where Jesus Christ  give GLORIFICATION to the TRUE BRIDE  of  KINGS OF KINGS AND THE LORD OF LORDS : THE WEDDING OF THE LAMB (Revelation 19,16): “- Let us rejoice be glad and give him glory. For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear, Revelation 19,7-8:
  3. GLORIFICATION – your eternal personality – your soul, body and spirit glorified by JESUS CHRIST in a resurrected TRUE HOLY CHARACTER in HEAVEN in the presence of GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON AND GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT – your eternal HOME.

-” And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. He had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on his horns, and on each head a blasphemous name”, Revelation 13,1.

-” The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority”, Revelation 13,2b.

-” The whole world was astonished and followed the beast. Men worshipped the dragon because he had giver authority to the beast, and they also worshipped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can make war against him?”, Revelation 13.3b-4.

This is visions, where God reveals to the Body of Christ – THE CHURCH of true believers and disciples of Jesus Christ about Satan´s strategy to deceive and destroy THE CHURH in the 7 years of THE GREAT TRIBULATION just before the second coming of Jesus Christ.

-“ The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months”, Revelation 13,5.

-” He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people. language and nation. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast – all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world. He who has an ear, let him hear”, Revelation, 13,7-9.

The Beast out of the Sea is a metaphor of a person – a false prophet who is under influence and dominion of Satan. The false prophet established a false ideology, a false religion , a false way of thinking, which is worldwide. The false prophet will get authority over all nations on earth. This authority will lead to a worldwide power system of false religion/false political ideology, economic and military structures. This 3-fold system is under influence and dominion of the false Prophet and the Dragon=Satan.

Revelation 16,13: -” Then I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the false prophet. There are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty.

Revalation 19,19-20: -” Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to make war against the rider on the horse and his army. But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshipped his image. The two of then were  thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulphur”. (“the rider on the horse and his army”: – “I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider i called Faithful and True“, Revelation 19,11-16 – “the rider” is Jesus Christ returning as Messiah: -” On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS”,Revelation 19,16b.

Revelation 20,10: -” And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulphur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

God reveals this and warn the true believers of Jesus Christ of being patient, endurance and faithful:

-“If anyone is go into captivity, into captivity he will go. If anyone is to be killed with the sword, with the sword he will be killed. This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of the saints”, Revelation 13,10.

 

 

The Beast out of the Earth, Revelation, 13,10-18:

ANTICHRIST:

-“Then I saw another beast, coming out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb, but he spoke like a dragon, He exercised all the authority of the first beast on his behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed”, Revelation 13,10.

-“Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He ordered them to set up an image in honour of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed”, Revelation 13,14-15.

 The Beast out of the Earth is a metaphor of a person – ANTICHRIST, who is under influence and dominion of Satan. Antichrist will rule out of the 3-fold system created by THE FALSE PROPHET – a false ideology, a false religion, a false way of thinking: a worldwide power system of false religion/false political ideology, economic and military structures.

-“He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no-one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name”, Revelation 13,16-17.

This is a extremely serious warning from God to all true christians about Satan strategy to destroy the faith and life of all true christians in THE BIG TRIBULATION TIME of 7 years just before THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST IN GLORY AND POWER.

“a mark on his right hand or on his forehead”, Revelation 13,16.

A “mark” symbolize your belonging to somebody. When you are a true christians God the Almighty has put his holy “mark” inside your spirit, body and soul (1. Thessalonians 5,23), when you received Jesus Christ as your savior and Lord (Romans 10,9-10). Your mark is that your are “born again” (John 3,1-21) and that you have received the indwelling power of The Holy Spirit. When you are baptized with The Holy Spirit your body, soul and spirit are filled with The Holy Spirit (Acts 2,1-21).

The”mark of the beast is the mark of the Dragon = the mark of Satan, which indicate that a person belongs to Satan and serve him and will be doomed to Hell in the FINAL judgment, see Revelation 20,7-15, Satan´s Doom.

-“This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man´s number. His number is 666”, Revelation 13,18.

7 – seven is God´s metaphor number symbolize perfection and holiness.

6 – six is a metaphor number of the earth symbolize  non perfection and unholiness and is a number of Satan.

Its what a person let indwell in his/her heart, that indicate the person´s relation and belonging to either God or Satan.

The victorious Church in all times from the day of Pentecost to the Day of Rapture, (Revelation 2,1-3,22; 1. Thessalonians 4,13-18 and Acts 2,1-47):

-“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him, who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God”, Revelation 2,7.

-“Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes will not be hurt at all by the second death”, Revelation 2,10b-11; 20,6 and 20,14).

-“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone with a new name on it, known only to him who receives it”, Revelation 2,17.

-“To him who overcomes and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations – “He will rule them with an iron scepter, he will dash them to pieces like pottery” – just as I have received authority from my Father. I will also give him the morning star. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches”, Revelation 2,26-29.

-“He who overcomes will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before my Father and his angels. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches”, Revelation 3,5-6.

-“I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no-one will take your crown. Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will he leave it. I will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on him my new name. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches”, Revelation 3,11-13.

-“Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me. To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my father on his throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches”, Revelation 3,19-22.

 

 

Copy from my article “Apocalypse of Jesus Christ PART 2” on this homepage Danculture.dk:

Copy start:

May God help you to understand the salvation by Jesus Christ and the wonderful life in close relation to God through his Son Jesus Christ.

I pray for you, that you will give your life to Jesus Christ and learn to know God and experience his forgiveness, love, freedom and holiness.

Ask Jesus Christ to save you and and let Him  fill your heart with the Holy Spirit.

Pray and read in the text of the Bible daily :

Matthew 6,6: (Jesus) – But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

Talk to God as to a father, to Jesus Christ as a friend and led the Holy Spirit guide you in your daily life and your service to God.

Ask The Holy Spirit to reveal to you about sin in your daily life – if so then confess this sin to God, repent and ask Jesus Christ to forgive you. Receive His forgiveness and His grace and fill your body, soul and spirit with the Holy Spirit and let the blood of Jesus Christ shed on Calvary cross cleanse you and heal your entire body, soul and spirit. Do it every day – take time for pray  and bible study“go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father”, (Matthew 6,6).

 

Your POSITION IN CHRIST: The moment you have prayed to God to be saved by the blood of Jesus Christ shed on Calvary Cross your position before God the Almighty is that your are RIGHTEOUS – you are justify by the atonement sacrifice of Jesus Christ on Calvary.

See John 15,3-5: – You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

 

Your CONDITION IN CHRIST the rest of your life here on earth is a PROGRESS – your SANCTIFICATION, where the Holy Spirit in companion with you develop your CHARACTER (it is your intellect, feelings and will) to be Holy. When you are a born again christian the Holy Spirit dwells inside your body, soul and spirit and produces the FRUITS of The Holy Spirit: LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS and SELF-CONTROL, see Galatians 5,22.

 

 

The BLESSING of salvation:

PSALM 32 (verses 1-2): – Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man whose sin the LORD does not count against him and in whose spirit is no deceit.

PSALMS 32 (Verses 8-11): – I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you. Do not be like the horse of the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you. Many are the woes of the wicked, but the LORD´s unfalling love surrounds the man who trusts in him. Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart!

PSALM 33  with God´s call to PRAISE:

-“Sing joyful to the LORD, you righteous; It is fitting for the upright to praise him. Praise the LORD with harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy”, Psalm 33,1-3.

and

-“Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ”, Ephesians, 5,19.

 

 

The second coming of Jesus Christ:

– the Rider on the White Horse, Revelation 19,11-21:

 

-“I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no-one knows but himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God”, Revelation 19,11-13.

-“Jesus left the temple and was walking away when his disciples came up to him to call his attention to the buildings. “Do you see all these things?” he asked. “I tell you the truth, not one stone here will be left on another, every one will be thrown down”, Matthew 24,1-2.

-“As Jesus was sitting on the Mount Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us”, they said, “when will this happen, and when will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” Matthew 24,3.

-“Jesus answered: “Watch out that no-one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, I am the Christ, and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All this things are the beginning of birth pains”, Matthew 24,4-8.

-“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stand firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come”, Matthew 24,9-14.

 

Since Pentecost with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the disciples (Acts 2,1-42) “this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations”, Matthew 24,14a, and will be preached through the entire Tribulation Time/End Time/Time of Grace/Time of Salvation/Time of The Holy Spirit AND through the seven years (The last “week” of the seventy weeks = 3,5 +3,5 = seven years, See Daniel 9,25-27)  named THE GREAT TRIBULATION TIME until THE SECOND COMING of Jesus Christ in GLORY – The Rider on the White Horse, Revelation 19,11-21.

 

-“So when you see standing in the holy place”the abomination that causes desolation” spoken of through the prophet Daniel – let the reader understand – then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains”, Matthew 24,15; and see Daniel 7, 15-28; 9,25-27; 11,31;12,12 and 2 Thessalonians 2,1-12, The Man of Lawlessness.

-“Because of the signs he was given power to do of behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He ordered them to set up a image in honour of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and caused all who refused to worship the image to be killed. He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so theta no-one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name”, Revelation 13,15-17.

-“I, Daniel, was troubled in spirit, and the visions that passed through my mind disturbed me. I approached one of those standing there and asked him the true meaning of all this. So he told me and gave me the interpretation of these things: The four great beasts are four kingdoms that will rise from the earth. But the saints of the Most High will receive the kingdom and will possess it for ever – yes for ever and ever, Daniel 7,15-18.

-“For then there will be great distress, unequalled from the beginning of the world until now – and never to be equalled again. If those days had not been cut short, no-one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened, Matthew 24,21-22.

-“Immediately after the distress of those days

“the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken”, Matthew 24,29.

-” At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other, Matthew 24,30-31.

 

The Rider on the White Horse, Revelation 19,11-21:

-“The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Out of his month comes a shape sword with which to strike down the nations. He will rule them with an iron scepter. He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has his ams written:

KINGS OF KINGS AND LORDS OF LORDS, Revelation 19,14-16.

-“Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to make war against the rider of the horse and his army. But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs  he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshipped his image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulphur. The rest of them were killed with the sword that came out of the mouth of the rider on the horse, and all birds gorged themselves on their flesh, Revelation 19,19-21.

In my article:

“How to understand Jesus teaching about being born again and his freely sacrificing death on Calvary Cross” (See my homepage Danculture.dk and click on category “Spiritualitet”) I have written my christian testimony how I got free of occult bondages from the powers of darkness of the false religions Hinduism, Buddhism and New Age. Under my “one year hitchhike around the world” 1965-66 I got involved in foretelling atmy visit and stay in the home of a hill tribe medicine man practicing shamanism in the jungle near Chiang Mai in NorthThailand 18-21. july 1966. In 1968 I became initiated to the false religion Hinduism through The Trancendental Meditation Movement (T.M.).

In may, june and july 1987 God called me to give my life to his son Jesus Christ and with help from 3 charismatic priests and the charisma gifts of The Holy Spirit I was delivered the 8. july 1987 from the powers of darkness and received the salvation (born again) by God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus Christ through his sacrifice on Calvary Cross, and next day 9. july 1987 BAPTISED by THE HOLY SPIRIT with the sign of speaking in other tongues (See Acts 2,4:  “All of the were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them” and Acts 10,46; 19,6) and was filled with his peace, freedom, love and joy in my heart.

On 9. august 1987 I was baptised in water to my saviour and Lord Jesus Christ in the name of the Father, of the the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Matthew 28,19.

From 1. september 1987 – 1. june 1988 i attended full time pentecostal bible school “Elim” in Copenhagen.
