THE REIGN OF JESUS - CHRIST IS COMING!
Jesus Christ is at the door, after two thousand years of waiting, we find that the prophecies heralding his return have been fulfilled in our generation since 14 May 1948.
This is the date of the creation of the State of Israel, which marked the beginning of the return of the Jewish people in Israel on the land of their ancestors.
In the year seventy accordance with a prophecy of Jesus Christ, the temple of Jerusalem was destroyed and the Jews scattered around the world until the end of time.
The creation of the State of Israel was thus the first biblical sign of the end times!
We will see in this article the consequences for humanity of the ad and the return of Jesus Christ on Earth.
What times we live!
We see the world as our frame of reference and our own scale of values.
Like all of us, my scale of values took shape gradually after my birth.
It is in Portugal June 17, 1952 around Lisbon I came to the world.
When I was five my parents immigrated to France where I grew up and my life developing my frame of reference.
I knew the times of charcoal hair, wash houses, clothes washers, lamps and even a radio station with crystal, made by my father.
So I grew up with the technological revolution and monitoring its development.
When my parents in the early 60s bought our first television lamps « black and white » , I assure you that at that time it was a real revolution in French homes, and men were already talking about colonizing the moon !
I have seen since the fifties, like those of my age and some older, all the changes of life, technology but also of society.
It is besides at that time (50 years) that technology has taken a giant leap with the creation of the first computer in 1948.
(For details see my article):
Yes, I attended as many this incredible technology revolution.
But alas this technological revolution was deregulated in hand with revolution die and companies but also global demographics
From the late 40’s to the 70’s important for the company was to provide work for all « Men and Women » so that everyone involved in this collective and necessary evolution of the post-war society and pays the fruit of revolutions technological, expenses and astronomical costs of reconstruction following the Second World War.
It was the era of small trades such as punching bus and metro tickets.
Increasing demographic helping the company multiplied job creation for all to participating in the collective effort to benefit from technological developments.
Banks had a very important role in the financing of industrial and individual projects.
I would even say that without the banks, many technological and industrial projects of that era would have remained at the draft stage.
These years of « full employment » 30 glorious named were also known in France by the slogan « Metro-Boulot-Dodo »
Indeed this unrestrained march of technology finally weighed heavily on families as men and women worked.
The widespread employment of women was among other consequences of creating a disruption of habits and customs of society.
Alas, Many couples separated by the work eventually divorced.
This phenomenon led over time a rejection of the young for marriage and even for religious education (Catechism)
The children left to themselves then often several hours a day were thus easy prey for perverts and were unable to obtain parental and family education that framework necessary for the preservation of the frame of reference of family values, religious , social and societal transmitted in large part by families and church organizations over generations.
The technological revolution was thus ultimately a price and that price was the destruction of the family and of Catholic teaching!
Everyone can see today the damage to the family and Catholic teaching.
Some young people in the suburbs of large cities believe that Jesus Christ is the name of a professional footballer !!!
It is first in the West that the technological revolution has started, developed and widespread. Then later it is in Asia that has continued.
Many countries remained for a variety of reasons outside of this technological development particularly in Africa and in the East but also in some countries in the north of the planet that were under domination of the former USSR.
We see today that it is in these countries qu’affluent these countless« migrants » hoping to find a better life in Western countries called advanced technologically.
Some migrants in their leaks die on the roads of the exodus and others drown in the Mediterranean.
Many surviving the exodus continue to survive several years in the West in misery or in very precarious.
And this is where the second part of the price paid to the technological revolution.
People in countries that have been left on the sidelines of this technological revolution are unable to evolve and live in great misery despite the wealth of the land exploitation and basements of their country by others who take profits at their expense.
More adventurous leave these countries and sometimes go with women and children on the roads especially to Europe in search of a better world.
Those who do not are killed on the roads often face robberies and violence on the roads of the exodus.
Their new lives are often made of misery, hardship and insecurity.
In the story, all the technological advances have taken some time before making a profit generalized to humanity.
This was the case during the industrial revolution in the 19 th century who created initially a lot of unemployment and misery before creating millions of jobs.
But our generation is facing a major problem that prevents us from moving forward and draw a sufficient general benefit for all humanity and even help those in need.
This is the « betrayal » of « Some of our politicians » who have vowed during their elections, to defend ourselves, (we the people) to guide and manage our nations .
Including a man in France
» Giscard »
Which, January 3, 1973, when he was President of the French Republic has passed a law requiring the state to borrow from banks in the international market instead of borrowing from the French and the Bank of France.
Owners of large global banks then became the masters of the world and have a permit.
They put hands on the money of states and peoples and they all obliged us to open bank accounts.
Salaries, by law, were therefore paid by check and then wire transfer.
Banks stopped once to be useful to society to become indispensable to humanity.
They have become real payment and collection agencies taking in passing a significant percentage of each transaction, as well as bank charges, bank charges, management fees and other fees.
Banks no longer had one goal was to make a profit in excess and by all means!
Not only the state into debt, but also individual citizens were blackmailed by the banks.
This was the case in France but also in most of the nations of the world.
Owners of large international banks have become the masters of the world have done by removing Nations » the Gold Standard « and not having to hold, as provided by law, a quantity of gold in relation to the money discovered that they allowed.
Being indebted and therefore deregulated in a mad rush and frantic searching for outrageous profits, even to the creation and marketing of banking products « Toxic » (hardly profitable and strong veiled risks).
Many banks have therefore ran straight losses resulting alas with them in the fall of 29 September 2008 thousands of investors and put millions of families on the streets, in poverty and misery.
Those who have not been forced to close their doors were saved by mere accounting in order to hide their failures and their ruins.
» Giscard »
Known by its initials VGE
The law of January 3, 1973 is causing
of all our state debt.
The debts of state, private and banking accumulated from year to year since 1973 to reach such depths that they have become impossible to repay and they prevent us to evolve otherwise than by new debt.
Man has become French without realizing a slave of modern times.
In 2015 these are very many people on earth who have become through debt slaves of modern times.
Misery and insecurity have become the daily many families worldwide.
The question we can ask ourselves is how and in which direction the situation will develop!
The world population was two billion five hundred million in 1950.
She is now in 2015 to more than seven billion people.
The world’s population has almost tripled in just 63 years!
If we had these problems of debt and demographics, we may with time rectify the situation and continue our societal evolution.
But alas things are much more complex!
More global population and the higher we should create even small trades jobs such as bus and metro tickets as punching in the 60s so that each family can live in dignity and participate in the collective effort .
It is the role of our world leaders at the head of states to implement policies and necessary means to change our society.
But what did they do and what do they do?
They entrusted our lives, our economies and our futures to the banks, which were ruined by delusions of grandeur and no longer exist since 2008 after the New York crash only by paperwork that push the game maturity and the final fall of bankruptcy!
But the worst is that to enable the operation of public and private banks, which are almost all ruined, central banks issued astronomical amounts of banknotes « Virtual » to lend to banks by the writings of games against Many bank debt « Toxic » that central banks agreed to deposit.
As banks are no longer creditworthy deposits balance sheets of state banks, and private stations have now become unavoidable in the short term!
Guess who will be presented the bill …!
Pending this final fall, banks bleed to death all clients (rich and poor).
At work the owners have only one word « Economy » and of course it is by reducing payrolls they realize the savings.
It is this generation that is becoming the most important in the history of humanity; who most need the help of banks to finance a maximum of industrial and personal projects, to overcome this surge in global demographics, as banks behave bloodthirsty raptors seeking only immediate profit to recover enough money to delay their collapse and bankruptcy filing.
As always when things go wrong, discord are growing between men and between states.
These are then violence and wars which replace the dialogues and negotiations.
This is what we see every day especially in the countries of Africa, East and North of the planet that are also the same ones who have not experienced technological expansion.
It is clear that the global economic, political, social and society is very critical.
We are even on the brink of a global military conflict!
As nothing is simple, add to all these problems, the rise of Islamic fanaticism and willingness of Muslims to invade and convert the world to Islam, even by force including terrorism or gently with the complicity of some our elected officials.
And as if that was not enough, we find that the world also began to show us that it exists and she does what she wants! Unfortunately at our expense!
Torrential rains, Slender, Fires, storms, cyclones, hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes and climate upsets daily strike the world with strength, power and large scale for many years.
And as if nature wanted to also attract our attention, we see that every year millions of fish, birds, wildlife and livestock die suddenly for no known reason since 2008.
All this is a reality formed an independent chain of facts, concrete, real and factual!
Before such apocalyptic reality we must first accept it as a very serious but simple reality of natural facts.
But we also need intellectual honesty to look if there is a link and a common point to all these evils which afflict humanity with strength every day.
And here we discover that it is in the Bible that is the sole link and common to all these present misfortunes of mankind.
These highlights, difficult and unique for Humanity we live are totally consistent with biblical prophecies regarding the period known: the « End Times » that announces to the generation will attend, she will seethe return of Jesus Christ his thousand-year reign on Earth!
It sounds totally amazing and incredible!
Yet this is the pure and simple reality!
We obviously live in our time the end times advertised in the Bible!
II evidence and consequences of the end of time.
Over time I saw the negative developments of our company in 2008 after the stock market crash in New York, I’m interested in why and how of all the calamities which we live and worsened ever since birth .
Every analysis I made of the general situation besetting humanity, I returned consistently to the same conclusion.
Also unexpected qu’inimaginable for ordinary mortals my conclusion was, what I knew of religion and after numerous inspections on the Bible, we certainly lived the late biblical times announcing the return of Jesus Christ!
It was amazing and so I searched irrefutable evidence.
Well I had to go to the evidence and find that the evidence was flagrant, and irrefutable many.
It changed my life!
Faced with such certainty, the priorities of life have appeared different to me.
See my article on the signs:
Top priority was getting to share with as many on Earth this message from Heaven that the prophecies announced faithful we return in Glory of Jesus Christ the only son of God awaited by all Christians for two thousand years to rule the world for a thousand years until doomsday.
In terms of inventory, not exhaustive, biblical signs and prophecies heralding the return of our Lord Jesus Christ, I invite you to read the blog of Daniel Shepherd who did a remarkable job.
We note with some amazement that all biblical prophecies and signs, announcing his return have been fulfilled in our generation!
The amount of biblical signs and prophecies (more than fifty important) announcing the return of Jesus Christ, performed during our generation as a series of irrefutable evidence.
To recognize and understand the important of the return of Jesus Christ on Earth, it Must begin by having the objectivity and openness to understand and admit that our entire civilization is based and founded on Jesus Christ.
Following the example of the world calendar that is based on the birth of Jesus Christ, we are in 2015 so the two thousand fifteenth year after the birth of Jesus Christ.
This man « Jesus » born in a stable in winter having no heat than that generated by his parents and by animals that were present, has over the last three years of his life, thirty to thirty three years preached that he was the Messiah announced in the Bible (the first will).
He had with him during his three years of preaching the Twelve Apostles he taught.
This humble man, preached the kingdom of God, he performed miracles, walked on water, healed the sick and even raised the dead (Lazarus).
He also miraculously multiplied loaves and fish to feed the crowds that came to listen to his sermons.
This man who preached forgiveness and love, was arrested, humiliated, insulted, mocked, tortured and finally crucified on Calvary between two thieves!
But this man « Jesus » was not a man like others, he was the only son of God and came back to life at the dawn of the third day past the tomb, demonstrating his apostles and over five hundred people that through him the son of God, every man could have eternal life, for him the only son of God had agreed to pass through death for the remission of our sins.
Before returning to the Father, Jesus Christ promised to return at the end of time to get his church (his followers who are saved by His grace)and then return to reign on earth for a thousand years to save by merit before last judgment those who have survived the day of wrath of God.
God is formal. No unclean thing can enter the kingdom of heaven and live forever.
Man being bearer of original sin is in fact already doomed at birth.
But Jesus Christ by His sacrifice has justified us before God his Father and therefore we can be saved and enter the kingdom of heaven by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
So we can all by love of Jesus Christ without merit access to the kingdom of heaven.
This we can even now because under are in the state of grace granted by Jesus Christ.
Just us to benefit from this state of grace of Jesus Christ, to be baptized, to ask God’s forgiveness for all our sins, to repent of our misdeeds and straighten our lives before ending the state of Grace.
This state of grace will end at the moment of the removal of members of the church formed by all who have come to Christ.
Gospel of Matthew chapter 24 verses No. 31, 40, 41
31 And he shall send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
40 Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and the other left
41 Then shall two be in the field; one will be taken and the other left;
In the Gospel of Matthew chapter 24 verse 33 and 34, the Bible also states
Similarly, when you see all these things, know that the Son of man is near, at the door.
I tell you the truth, this generation will not pass away until all these things take.
Since we live in the end times by the fulfillment of apocalyptic prophecies and signs, so before the end of this generation, Jesus Christ will return to Earth.
It is a certainty!
The only question that remains unanswered is the day and time of this return, since the Bible states that God alone knows them.
What is also clear in this same chapter 24 of the Gospel of Matthew in verse 36
As for the day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.
IT should be noted that the following verses state that the return of Jesus Christ will suddenly.
While it is important now to come to Christ is because we can be saved by grace granted even for a short time by Jesus Christ and therefore thus benefit directly from the Eternal life without seeing death.
Upon removal of the members of his church, those who remain and who would be saved by the merit will be during the millennium (righteous life, humble and without sin …!)
But they will first have to go through the whole period of the day of God’s wrath which will continue after the rapture of the church and pass through death before getting eternal life.
But the worst is that, as we are at the end of time, those who will not be saved and who will lose their lives may be directly condemned to hell for eternity.
The choice is yours, God has given us all the « free will » and each therefore has this wonderful gift « Life » according to his will.
But remember that Eternity is God’s and if you refuse this outstretched hand of Jesus Christ, you can not enter the kingdom of heaven by the grace he gives us even for a small period of time.
III The readiness of the return of Jesus Christ
The time of harvest is coming!
Given current events and achievements of biblical prophecies and signs, Christ’s return is imminent.
I invite you to read my article:
We know from the Bible that this return will be in economic difficulties and the pains of childbirth. (wars, disasters, violence and immorality)
1 Thessalonians 5: 3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; Then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman, and they shall not escape .
John 16: 21 When a woman gives birth, has sorrow, because her hour is come; But when she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that she has a man is born into the world.
It will have escaped no one that since September 29, 2008 humanity lives in a state of economic crisis and global ruin.
The closer we get the return of Jesus Christ and the pains and difficulties are bright and large. And that’s what we see in our daily gradually.
We are currently witnessing a major war since March 2012 East means led by Islamist fanatics who persecute and kill those who oppose them and massacred many Christians to pass.
The average East is ablaze!
In Africa, too many people are persecuted and massacred by fanatical Islamists.
Many families are murdered by those crazy Islamists who are true barbaric servants of Lucifer.
Many Western nations involved (ad-free) in the war against the fanatic Islamism both in Africa and middle East.
According to my analysis of the end of time, this war against Islamism is that of Armageddon when Jesus Christ will come soon to end.
See my article:
IV The end-time of War
This war was announced to us in the Bible particularly by the prophets:
11:40 And at the end time, the king of the south will strike against him, and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships, and enter the country flood and pass through;
11:41 ET will come into the glorious land, and many countries will fall;but these shall escape out of his hand: Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the son of Ammon.
I will produce prodigious signs in the heavens and on earth: blood, fire and columns of smoke. 4 And the sun will be darkened, the moon will become blood before the coming of the day of the LORD, that great day and terrible. 5 Then everyone who calls on the Lord will be saved [ b ] :according to the words of the Lord [ c ] , there will be survivors on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem [ d ] , the survivors whom the LORD calls [ e ] .
This war of the end of time seems to be started in March 2012 with the war in Syria in which case 42 months later, which is the duration of the reign of the Antichrist, the physical return of Jesus Christ on Earth could may well be around September 2015 .
See my article:
The book of the Apocalypse tells us that there will be several main characters speakers at the end of time.
The dragon is Satan, two beasts, one rising from the sea, and the other amount of the Earth, and the false prophet.
In light of the news, we see in the Middle East, that it is the Islamic State which makes war with the saints, and that’s part of the Muslim world that supports and finances the IE » the Islamic State «
Muslims are divided into two large families Shiites and Sunnis and Alawites several branches, the Alevis, Druze and Kharijites.
All these people are at war forever and especially since the death of Muhammad.
At the head of the » Islamic State « is one of the beasts, of course you understand that he will not call his name to the world on television channels or that it is a biblical beasts.
Nevertheless one who pulls the strings of this war in the shadows is the anti-Christ.
The Islamists formed the army of False Prophet Muhammad , committing the worst atrocities and massacring the Christians in the name of the Koran, Hadith and its Allah.
V The physical return of Jesus Christ and the millennium
Prior to the return of Jesus Christ should produce two great miracles:
1 Thessalonians 4:14 – 15 – 16- 17-18
14 Jesus, we believe, died and rose again; likewise, we also believe, those who have fallen asleep, God, through Jesus, bring with him.
15 For the word of the Lord, we declare you this: we live, we who are still there for the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16 At the signal given by the voice of the archangel, and with God’s trumpet, the Lord himself shall descend from heaven, and those who died in Christ shall rise first.
1) The resurrection of the dead
The dead in Christ, namely those who died but who have been kidnapped if they were alive will be resurrected and will access directly to eternal life.
2) The Rapture of the Church
All those who are alive and who have come to Christ will be saved by the love and grace.
Together with those who have been resurrected, they will be in a moment, in a wink, processed, coating a glorified body and they will be raised together to meet the Lord in the air.
They will access directly to eternal life and they attend the wedding of the Lamb will be the everlasting covenant that Jesus Christ will be with the members of his church.
Prior to the return of Jesus Christ must also produce the « day » of God’s wrath.
This period is not mandatory for a period of one day.
I think the period known as the day of the wrath of God is the same as the end of time manifesting as the birth of the most vivid pain every day than the day before.
In which case, the eve of the return of Jesus Christ should be the day when God’s wrath will manifest itself with more force.
A prophecy mentions three days of darkness, it is that of Padre PIO , they could well be the last three days before the physical return of our Lord Jesus Christ.
After it the rapture will take some time (unknown duration that can range from a few moments to seven years).
We know that Jesus Christ at his return will stop the war of Armageddon and he will judge the nations and men.
After the return of Jesus Christ’s life will continue for those who have had a chance to survive the day of wrath of God.
There will be new laws and new values!
These changes will occur on a human scale.
Jesus Christ will not transform man miraculously!
Not that he can not accomplish this feat, since he has already done with the resurrection of the dead and the transformation of those who have been removed, but simply because the man who will live the millennium will continue to learn and grow at their own pace of mortal man.
Nevertheless Jesus Christ physically being on Earth will have a very strong effect on life and that of man will be longer.
Nations should probably stand to enable change and smooth evolution of human life.
It is a thousand years of constant changes that await man in the reign of Jesus Christ.
I already had a good fifty years of technological developments and it is certain that the pinnacle of what we know today technology, will appear in a thousand years as advanced as we might seem a flint today carved by prehistoric man to be his tool!
The technology will still make several good giants. But the greatest evolution of man will be in the field of understanding of life, of love and forgiveness.
Life, Love and Forgiveness are forces of creative energies that lead man towards new scientific and spiritual boundaries.
During the reign of Jesus Christ, our lives will continue maintaining the power of free will but in compliance with new rules and laws dictated by Jesus Christ.
The man will live longer.
A hundred years a man is still young!
The man will live much longer but death will nevertheless not yet deleted.
In his new life under the reign of Jesus Christ man will continue working but the purpose of this work will be different.
It will not be looking for maximum personal financial benefit by the labor and trade that will be searched, but the usefulness of the labor and trade for the well being of humanity and the personal and collective enrichment through education .
This has no resemblance or even remotely with capitalism, communism or collectivism.
The new company will be a sharing society by Love. It will last the thousand year reign of Jesus Christ.
During these thousand years death will still exist because eternity will only commence after the last judgment at the end of the thousand years.
But those who have been removed before the physical return of Jesus Christ, they will have already gained eternal life and reign for a thousand years with Christ.
Those who have been removed will continue to evolve by helping others.
That’s according to the Bible and my deductions what should happen with return and reign of Jesus Christ.
During the thousand years of the reign of Jesus Christ on Earth everyone can purify and evolve.
But, because there is a but and is size.
A thousand years is a long time but obviously it will also be too short for the new all humanity understand and accept the teaching, values and laws of Jesus Christ.
The Bible tells us that at the end of the reign of Jesus Christ, Satan shall be loosed and will once again attempt nations and men.
It will follow a final global conflict that will once again defeat Satan.
Then intervene the Last Judgment and Satan will be cast into hell with all those who have followed.
VI The Last Judgement
The final judgment as the name suggests will be the last judgment God will do to mortal man.
All the dead of all time will be resurrected and judged with all living based on the actions of their lives.
Some will be saved, live forever and will enter the kingdom of heaven but others will be condemned to eternity in hell.
Hell will be a world without Love or Hope.
Today it is still possible to be saved by the love and grace of Jesus Christ.
But tomorrow what will it?
Choose well your way because your eternal life will be depending on what you decide today.
VII The New Earth
After the last judgment which no one knows how it will take place in time, all who have been saved by the good deeds of their lives will be led by Jesus Christ on a new earth under a new heaven.
And all who have been condemned by Jesus Christ to the evil deeds of their lives will perish with our good old Earth will be destroyed.
This is the teaching of the Bible for the third period of human life that will be the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ,
The first period has been the longest, it was human life before the first coming of Jesus Christ there are two thousand years.
It is noteworthy that during this first period God intervened in human life directly, then by his angels and then by his prophets.
The second period of human life is the part between the first coming and the second coming of Jesus Christ.
It should be noted that during these two thousand years (second period) there was no direct intervention of God or message issued by his angels nor direct intervention of Christ, nor prophet out of God; for Jesus Christ to help us in his absence sent us the Holy Spirit of God leads and helps all who came to him through baptism.
Only the Virgin Mary has made appearances and miracles during these two thousand years to revive the faith at times thus allowing the man to remember that Jesus Christ promised to return and he will keep his promise at the time decided by God the father.
The third period is the shortest but will be human history the most important because it will transfer between mortal life and man’s eternal life.
Some will go to the Eternal life in the kingdom of Heaven and other for eternity in Hell.
What will be the life of the immortal man in the kingdom of heaven only God knows.
Personally I believe that God created man so that he is constantly changing because of what use immortal creations of God if not always evolve and endless.
The man becomes an immortal being become an infinite being!
The choice of your future is now you need to do it!
We have a thousand years ahead of us before the end and the destruction of the Earth!
As I already said and repeated many times,
« I am not a prophet »
so I can be wrong.
This would not be the first time!
Nevertheless, the facts reveal that the prophecies are fulfilled daily before our eyes.
I invite you to watch this video Rabbi Ron Chaya on the end times

Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Christ, you become also soldiers and witnesses of the risen Christ.
Time will release and I beg you all kindly know or recall the existence of this blog to all your contacts so that all can become aware of particular times of human history that now lives humanity.
JESUS CHRIST IS MY KING
. /: /.
You can directly access all my articles by this link.
I can not end this article although long devoted to the Apocalypse without attaching a copy of the book of the Apocalypse jeans. (Copied on the net)
The last days will be the hardest and without the help of God, Love of Jesus Christ and the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, it will be very difficult not to succumb in the final moments.
Let us all pray and pray again and again my beloved Brothers and Sisters in Christ in order to prepare for the imminent return of our beloved King, Jesus Christ, the only son of God.
Before reading the book of the Apocalypse must have keys because this book was sealed, as the book of Daniel, to human understanding until the end of time.
To understand the visions of John we must understand that he saw our time with the reference framework of his time.
In describing the locusts and horses, we can understand that his description matches attack helicopters.
When describing the tanks we can understand that they are tanks.
When talking about seven heads we can understand that sees seven figures of US presidents on greenbacks (dollars).
When speaking of images that speak, we must understand that this is television.
And so on …
This is why the book was sealed to understanding the man until the end of time since the nineteenth century no one could understand since nobody knew of attack helicopters, tanks and other modern war equipment that would exist at the end of time.
You will see that this book reveals that we live in the era of John’s visions.
Thank you to all readers
Thank you to WordPress
Thank you to Google
Except exceptional cases, this article (a bit long I admit) will last at least until September 2015, and perhaps even permanently if God wants the removal of the church and the return of our Lord Jesus Christ occur before then.
Thank you all and God bless you.
A subject to ponder awaits the bottom of the article reader.
Revelation of Jesus Christ (Apocalypse means revelation) which God gave him to show his servants things which must shortly come, and he made it known by sending his angel to his servant John,
Who bare record of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ, everything that he saw.
Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: For the time is near.
John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace and peace to you from him who is and who was and who is coming, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne;
and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth! Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins by his blood,
and has made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever! Amen!
Behold, he cometh with clouds. And every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him; and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him.Yes. Amen!
I am the Alpha and the Omega, says the Lord God, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.
I John, your brother and fellow partaker in the tribulation and kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the island called Patmos, for the word of God and the testimony of Jesus.
I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet,
saying, What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches in Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
I turned to see what was the voice speaking to me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks,
and in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto a son of man, dressed in a long robe and with a golden belt on the chest.
His head and his hairs were white like white wool, like snow; His eyes were as a flame of fire;
his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice was like the sound of many waters.
He had in his right hand seven stars. From his mouth comes a sharp sword with two edges; and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.
When I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. He laid his right hand upon me, saying: Fear not!
I am the First and the Last, and the living. I was dead; and behold, I am alive for ever and ever. I have the keys of death and Hades.
Write the things which thou hast seen, and which are, and which must be hereafter;
the mystery of the seven stars which you saw in my right hand and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches and the seven candlesticks are the seven churches.
And unto the angel of the church in Ephesus: These things says he who holds the seven stars in his right hand, who walks among the seven golden candlesticks:
I know your works, your work and your perseverance. I know you can not tolerate evil; that you have tested those who call themselves apostles but are not, and hast found them liars;
you have perseverance, you have suffered because of my name, and thou grown weary.
But I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; if not, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless thou repent.
But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
Let him who has ears hear what the Spirit says to the churches To him who overcomes I will give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.
And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive:
I know your tribulation and your poverty (but thou art rich) and the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.
Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
Let him who has ears hear what the Spirit says to the churches; He that overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.
And unto the angel of the church in Pergamum: These things saith he that hath the sharp sword with two edges;
I know where you live, I know where the throne of Satan. You hold fast my name and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwells.
But I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the son of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit fornication.
Likewise, you also have those who hold to the doctrine of the Nicolaitans.
Repent therefore; else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
Let him who has ears hear what the Spirit says to the churches To him who overcomes I will give of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, that no one knows except him who receives it.
And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and whose feet are like fine brass:
I know your works, your love, your faith, your faithful service, your perseverance and your last works more than the first.
But I have this against you, that you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce my servants to engage in fornication and to eat things sacrificed to idols .
I gave her time to repent, and she will not repent of her fornication.
Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and great tribulation to those who commit adultery with her, unless they repent not of their works.
I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he who searches minds and hearts, and I will give to each according to your works.
To you, to all the rest in Thyatira, who do not receive this teaching, who have not known the depths of Satan, as they call them, I tell you I will not put upon you other burden;
But that which you have, hold fast till I come.
To him who overcomes, and keeps my works until the end, I give power over the nations.
He will rule them with a rod of iron, as it breaks the earthen vessels, and even I have received of my Father.
And I will give him the morning star.
Let him who has ears hear what the Spirit says to the churches
And unto the angel of the church in Sardis: These things saith he that hath the seven spirits of God and the seven stars: I know your works. I know you are alive, you are dead.
Be watchful, and strengthen what remains and is about to die; for I have not found your works perfect before God.
Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If you do not watch, I will come like a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
But you have a few people in Sardis who have not defiled their garments;They will walk with me in white, because they are worthy.
He who overcomes shall be clothed in white raiment; I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.
Let him who has ears hear what the Spirit says to the churches
Write to the Philadelphia Church angel; These things saith the Holy, the True, he who has the key of David, who opens and no one shall shut, who shuts and no one opens:
I know your works. Here, because thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut.
Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I loved you.
Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon the whole world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
I come quickly. Hold fast what thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more; I will write upon him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from my God and my new name.
Let him who has ears hear what the Spirit says to the churches
And unto the angel of the church of Laodicea: These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation:
I know your works. I know that you are neither cold nor hot. I would thou wert cold or hot!
So then because thou art lukewarm, and that you are neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.
Because thou sayest, I am rich, I’m rich, and I have need of nothing, and because you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked,
I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and salve to anoint your eyes, that thou mayest see.
Me, I rebuke and chasten those I love. Be zealous therefore, and repent.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
He who overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father on his throne.
Let him who has ears hear what the Spirit says to the churches
After this I looked, and behold, a door was opened in heaven. The first voice which I heard was like the sound of a trumpet talking with me, said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
Immediately I was in the Spirit. And behold, a throne was set in heaven, and on the throne sat.
He that sat was to look upon like a jasper stone and a sardine; and the throne was surrounded by a rainbow in sight like unto an emerald.
Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on these twenty-four thrones elders sitting, clothed in white garments, and on their heads crowns of gold.
The throne proceeded lightnings and voices and thunders. Before the throne burn seven torches, which are the seven Spirits of God.
There before the throne as a sea of glass like unto crystal. In the midst of the throne and around the throne, there are four beasts full of eyes before and behind.
The first living creature like a lion, the second creature like a calf, the third living creature had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.
The four living creatures, each having six wings, are full of eyes around and within. They keep saying day and night, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, who was, who is and who is coming!
When the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to him that sitteth on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever,
the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power;for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and without, sealed with seven seals.
And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open the book, neither to look thereon.
And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book and its seven seals.
And I saw between the throne and the four living creatures and the elders a Lamb standing, as slain. He had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
He came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat on the throne.
When he had taken the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of saints.
And they sang a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals; for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
thou hast made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.
I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne and the beasts and the elders: and their number was myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands.
Saying with a loud voice: The Lamb that was slain is worthy to receive power, wealth, wisdom, strength, honor, glory, and praise.
And every creature which is in heaven, on earth, under the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, heard I saying, To him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!
And the four beasts said, Amen! And the elders fell down and worshiped.
And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, Come.
I looked, and behold a white horse. And he that sat on him had a bow; a crown was given him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.
When he opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come.
And there went out another horse that was red. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth, that they should kill one another; and a great sword was given to him.
When he opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come. I looked, and behold, a black horse. Its rider had a balance in his hand.
And I heard the midst of the four living creatures a voice say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; but do not do evil to the oil and the wine.
When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come.
I looked, and behold a pale horse of a color. Its rider was named Death, and Hades followed with him. The power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held.
They cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, Master holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
And white robes were given to each of them; and it was said unto them that they should rest a little longer, till there stood the full number of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed like them.
I saw when he opened the sixth seal; and there was a great earthquake, the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
and the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, as when a fig tree shaken by a great wind casts its unripe figs.
And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
The kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders, the rich, the strong, and every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains.
And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb;
For the great day of his wrath is come; and who can stand?
After this I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth;holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind not blow on the earth, neither the sea, nor on any tree.
And I saw another angel ascending from the east, and having the seal of the living God; he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, and said:
Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the foreheads of the servants of our God.
And I heard the number of those who were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of Israel son:
of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand sealed; of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand, of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand,
of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand, of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand, of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand,
of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand, of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand, of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand,
of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand, of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand, of the tribe of Benjamin twelve thousand sealed.
After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues. Standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands.
And cried with a loud voice, saying: The salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne and to the Lamb.
And all the angels stood round about the throne and the elders and the four living creatures; and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God,
saying, Amen! Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, honor, power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever! Amen!
And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, These that are clothed in white robes, who are they, and whence came they?
I said to him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
That is why they are before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple. He that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them;
They will never be hungry, they will no longer thirsty, and the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat.
For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them and lead them to springs of living water, and God will wipe every tear from their eyes.
When he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.
And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them.
And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer;He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints on the gold altar before the throne.
The smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints from the hand of the angel before God.
And the angel took the censer, filled it with fire of the altar, and threw it on the earth. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
The first sounded. And there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth; and a third of the earth was burnt, and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
The second angel blew his trumpet. And something like a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood,
and a third of the living creatures in the sea and had life, died; and the third of the ships were destroyed.
The third angel blew his trumpet. And there fell from heaven a great star, burning like a torch, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers and on the springs of water.
The name of the star is called Wormwood; A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
The fourth angel sounded his trumpet. And the third of the sun was smitten, and the third of the moon and the third of the stars, so that a third of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
I looked, and I heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels are about to blow!
The fifth angel sounded his trumpet. And I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth. The key to the bottomless pit was given to him,
And he opened the bottomless pit. And he went up smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit.
From out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth; and was given power like the power of scorpions of the earth.
He was told not to harm the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree, but only those men which have not the seal of God on their foreheads.
It was given to them, not to kill them but to torture them for five months; and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man.
In those days, men will seek death and will not find it; they desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle; there were over their heads as crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.
And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth.
They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.
They had tails like unto scorpions, and stings, and it is in their tails power was to hurt men five months.
They had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek Apollyon.
One woe is past. Behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
The sixth angel sounded. And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.
And the four angels who were prepared for an hour, day, month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind.
The number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number.
And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and those who sat on them had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur. The heads of the horses were as heads of lions; and their mouths issued fire, smoke, and sulfur.
A third of mankind was killed by these three plagues, by the fire and the smoke, and the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.
For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails; their tails are like serpents, having heads, and with them they do hurt.
The other men who were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
and they repented not of their murders, nor of their enchantments, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud; above his head was the rainbow sky, and his face was like the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire.
He had a little book open in his hand. He put his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the earth;
and he cried with a loud voice, as a lion roars. When he cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write; and I heard a voice from heaven saying, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.
And the angel that I saw standing on the sea and on the land lifted up his right hand to heaven,
and swore by him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and the things in it, the earth and the things that therein are, and the sea and the things which are therein, that there would time
But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he announced to his servants the prophets.
And the voice I had heard from heaven spoke to me again, and said, Go and take the little book open in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on land.
And I went to the angel, telling him to give me the little book. And he said, Take it, and eat it; it will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be sweet as honey.
I took the little scroll from the hand of the angel and ate it up; it was in my mouth sweet as honey, but when I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
Then they said to me: Thou must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, languages, and kings.
There was given me a reed like unto a rod, saying, Arise, and measure the temple of God, the altar, and them that worship therein.
But the court of the temple leave it out, and measure it not; because it was given to the nations, and they will trample the holy city for forty-two months.
I will give to my two witnesses power to prophesy in sackcloth, a thousand two hundred sixty days.
These are the two olive trees and the two candlesticks standing before the Lord of the earth.
If anyone wants to harm them, fire out of their mouth and devours their enemies; and if any man will hurt them, he must be killed in this way.
They have power to shut heaven, so that it rain not during the days of their prophecy; and they have the power to change water into blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
When they have finished their testimony, the beast that rises from the abyss will make war and conquer them and kill them.
And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which is called, spiritually, Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and a half, and they do not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
And because of them the inhabitants of the earth shall rejoice with joy, and they shall send gifts one to another, because these two prophets tormented them that dwell on the earth.
After three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell on those who saw them.
And they heard a voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up here!And they ascended to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
At that time, there was a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell; seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the rest were terrified and gave glory to God of heaven.
The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe is coming soon.
The seventh angel blew his trumpet. And there was in the sky strong voices saying, The kingdom of the world is our Lord and of his Christ;and he shall reign for ever and ever.
And the twenty-four elders who sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshiped God,
Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, because thou hast taken to thee thy great power and took possession of his kingdom.
The nations were angry; and thy wrath is come, and the time has come for judging the dead, for rewarding your servants the prophets, saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and to destroy those who destroy the earth.
And the temple of God in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant was seen in his temple. And there were lightnings, and voices, and thunders, and an earthquake, and great hail.
A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head.
She was pregnant, and she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.
Another sign appeared in the sky; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
His tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. The dragon stood before the woman who was to give birth, to devour her child when it was born.
She bore a son, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her child was caught up to God and to his throne.
And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared by God, that there they should feed one thousand two hundred sixty days.
And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon. And the dragon fought and his angels,
but they were not the strongest, and their place found any more in heaven.
And was cast the great dragon, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world he was hurled to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
And I heard in the sky a loud voice saying: Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ;because it was rushed, the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in heaven. Woe to the earth and the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he has little time.
When the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
And the two wings of a great eagle were given to the woman, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, times and half a time, from the face of the snake.
And from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river after the woman, to the cause of the flood.
And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
And the dragon was angry against the woman, and he went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus.
And I stood upon the sand of the sea. And I saw out of the sea a beast that had seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
The beast which I saw was like a leopard; his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth as a lion’s mouth. The dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world wondered after the beast.
And they worshiped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: they worshiped the beast, saying, Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?
And it was given unto him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies; and he was given authority to act for forty-two months.
And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them. And power was given him over every tribe, people, language and nation.
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names have not been written from the foundation of the world in the Lamb’s book of life who was slain.
If anyone has ears, let him hear!
That leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity; if anyone kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
Then I saw rise from the earth another beast, and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
It exercises all the authority of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
He performs great signs, even making fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.
And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by the miracles which he had power to do in the presence of the beast, telling the inhabitants of the earth to make an image to the beast who had the wound by a sword and lived .
And he had power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand or in their foreheads:
and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, the name of the beast or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast. For it is man’s number and his number is six hundred threescore and six.
I looked, and behold, the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with him an hundred forty-four thousand, having his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads.
And I heard a voice from heaven, like the sound of many waters, like the sound of loud thunder; and the voice I heard was like that of harpists playing their harps.
And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders. And no one could learn the song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth.
These are they which were not defiled with women, for they are virgins;they follow the Lamb wherever he goes. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb
And in their mouth it is found no guile: for they are without fault.
I saw another angel flying in mid heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to the inhabitants of the earth, to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people.
Saying with a loud voice, Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment is come; and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
And another, a second angel followed, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, Babylon the great, who made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication!
And another, a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice: If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand,
he himself shall also drink of the wine of God’s fury, poured full strength into the cup of his anger, and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone before the holy angels and before the Lamb.
And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.
Here is the patience of the saints who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.
And I heard a voice from heaven saying, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord! Yes, says the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them.
I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sitting like a son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle and reap; for the hour to reap has come, because the harvest of the earth is ripe.
And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth. And the earth was reaped.
And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle.
Another angel, who had power over fire, came from the altar, and he called with a loud voice to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine Earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.
And the angel thrust in his sickle on the earth. And gathered the vine of the earth and threw the grapes into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
And the winepress was trodden without the city; and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of two hundred miles.
Then I saw in heaven another sign, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven plagues, the last; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.
And I saw as a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who had conquered the beast and his image and the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.
And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Your works are great and marvelous, Lord God Almighty!Your ways are just and true, kings of the nations!
Who shall not fear, O Lord, and glorify thy name? For thou only art holy.And all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.
After this I looked, and the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony was opened in heaven.
And the seven angels which had the seven plagues came out of the temple, clothed in pure bright linen, and with gold belts around the chest.
And one of the four living creatures gave the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God who lives forever and ever.
And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from his power; and no one could enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.
And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go and pour out the earth the seven bowls of the wrath of God.
The first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth. And a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast and worshiped his image.
The second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man. and every living soul died, all that was in the sea.
The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and fountains of waters. And they became blood.
And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, you who are and who were; you are holy, because thou hast judged thus.
For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.
And I heard the altar saying, Yea, Lord God Almighty, your judgments are true and righteous.
The fourth poured out his bowl on the sun. And it was given unto him to scorch men with fire;
And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast. And his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,
and blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
The sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates. And its water was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
And I saw out of the mouth of the dragon and from the mouth of the beast and from the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs.
For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the whole earth, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame! –
Gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air. And he went out of the temple, from the throne, a loud voice saying, It is done!
And there were lightnings, and voices, and thunders and a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so great tremor.
And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell, and God remembered great Babylon, to give her the cup of the wine of his fierce anger.
And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
And great hail, every stone about the weight of a talent, came down from heaven upon men; and men blasphemed God because of the plague of hail, because the plague thereof was exceeding great.
One of the seven angels which had the seven bowls came and spoke to me, saying, Come, I will show you the judgment of the great prostitute who sits on many waters.
With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and with the wine of her fornication the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk.
He carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls. She held in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication.
And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth.
And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints and the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And, seeing her, I was seized with a great astonishment.
And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
The beast that you saw was and is no more. And shall ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And the inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life, when they behold the beast that was, and is not , and yet is. –
This is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sitteth.
And there are seven kings: five are fallen, one is, the other is not yet come, and when he comes, he must continue a short time.
And the beast that was, and is not, is itself an eighth king, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
The ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
These have one mind, and shall give their power and authority to the beast.
They war against the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and called, and chosen, and faithful who are with Him are.
And he said to me, The waters which you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
The ten horns which you saw on the beast will hate the prostitute, and will also strip the naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire.
For God hath put in their hearts to fulfill His purpose and one mind, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
And the woman you saw is the great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.
After this I looked down from heaven another angel, having great authority; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
He cried with a loud voice, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, Babylon the great! It is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird,
because all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth will come with her fornication, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
And I heard another voice from heaven saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
Reward her even as she rendered, and repay her double according to her works. In the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
As much as she glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much give her of torment and mourning. Because she says in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow
Because of this, in one day her plagues will come, death and mourning and famine, and she shall be utterly burned with fire. For strong is the Lord God who judges.
And the kings of the earth, who engaged with her immodesty and luxury, shall weep and wail over her when they see the smoke of her burning.
Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Woe! woe! The great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour is thy judgment come
And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, because no one buys their cargo,
cargo of gold, silver, precious stones, pearls, fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet, all kinds of scented wood, all kinds of ivory, any kind of very costly wood, bronze, iron and marble,
and cinnamon, spice, incense, myrrh, frankincense, wine, oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses, chariots, and bodies and souls of men.
The fruits that thy soul lusted after are gone from you; and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them again.
The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment; weeping and wailing,
And saying, Alas! woe! The great city, that was clothed in fine linen, purple and scarlet, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls!For in one hour so great riches is come to naught
And every shipmaster, all who sailed to any place, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
and cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like the great city?
They threw dust on their heads, they cried and they were in mourning, they shouted, saying, Woe! woe! The great city, wherein were made rich by her wealth all who had ships in the sea, in one hour she has been destroyed!
Heaven, rejoice over it! And ye saints and apostles and prophets, rejoice too! For God hath avenged you on her.
And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall Babylon be cast, the great city, and it shall not be found.
And we heard no more at all in thee sound of harpists, musicians, flute players and trumpeters, one no longer found in you no craftsman, of whatsoever craft, heard no more at You’re the sound of the grinding,
the lamp shall shine no more at home, and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth, because all the nations were deceived by your sorcery
and because in her was found the blood of prophets and saints and all who have been slain on the earth.
After this I heard in heaven as a loud voice of a great multitude, saying, Alleluia The salvation and glory and power belong to our God,
because his judgments are true and righteous; for he hath judged the great prostitute who corrupted the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of His servants shed by her hand.
And they said again: Alleluia! … Her smoke goes up forever and ever.
And the twenty-four elders and the four beasts fell down and worshiped God sitting on the throne, saying, Amen! Hallelujah!
And a voice came from the throne, saying, Praise our God, all you his servants, you who fear him, small and great!
And I heard as a voice of a great multitude, like the sound of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunders, saying, Hallelujah! For the Lord God Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and be glad, and give him glory; for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his wife has made herself ready
and it was given her to wear fine linen, clean and white. For the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
And the angel said unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb! And he said unto me, These are the true words of God.
And I fell at his feet to worship him; but he said to me, See thou do it! I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse. Its rider is called Faithful and True, and he judges and makes war in righteousness.
His eyes were as a flame of fire; on his head were many crowns; he had a name written, that no one knows, if not himself;
and he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood. His name is the Word of God.
And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to smite the nations;He will rule them with a rod of iron; He treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
He has on His robe and on his thigh a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.
And I saw an angel standing in the sun. And he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds flying in mid heaven, Come, gather together for the great supper of God,
to eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of the mighty, the flesh of horses and their riders, the flesh of all, free and slave, small and great.
And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to make war against him that sat upon the horse and his army.
And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet who had done the signs before him by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped his image. They were both thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.
And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of him who sat on the horse; and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh.
Then I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand.
He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.
He threw him into the abyss, and shut it and sealed it over him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years were finished. After that he must be loosed for a little time.
And I saw thrones, and they sat on them were given authority to judge.And I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
The other dead did not come to life until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection! The second death has no power over them; but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison.
And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them to the war; their number is like the sand of the sea.
And they went up on the surface of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. Fire came down from heaven and devoured them.
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
Then I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it. The earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne. And books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged according to their works, according to what was written in these books.
The sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and all were judged according to their works.
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.
And I saw coming down from heaven, from God, the holy city, new Jerusalem, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
And I heard a loud voice saying: Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, and there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the former things have passed away.
And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said Write: for these words are true and faithful.
He said to me, It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the fountain of the water of life freely.
He who overcomes shall inherit all things; I will be his God and he shall be my son.
But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
One of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues came and spoke to me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the wife of the Lamb.
And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain. And he showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God, having the glory of God.
Her light was like unto a stone most precious, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.
She had a wall great and high. She had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written of the twelve tribes of Israel son:
at the east three gates, on the north three gates, on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.
The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
The one who spoke to me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city, its gates and its wall.
And the city lieth foursquare, and its length was equal to its width. He measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs; the length, width and height are equal.
He measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits, a man’s measure, that is, of the angel.
The wall was made of jasper, and the city was pure gold, like clear glass.
The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all manner of precious stones: the first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald,
the fifth onyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh hyacinth, the twelfth amethyst.
The twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl.The square of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.
I saw no temple in the city; for the Lord God Almighty is its temple, and the Lamb.
The city has no need of sun or moon to shine; for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth do bring their glory.
Its gates shall not be shut by day: for there shall be no night there.
They shall bring the glory and honor of nations.
There enter into it anything profane, or one who engages in the shameful or deceitful; it will come as those who are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
In the middle of the town square and on both banks of the river, there was a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month: and the leaves were for the healing of the nations.
There will be no more curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; his servants shall serve him and see his face,
and his name will be on their foreheads.
There will be no night there; and they need no light of lamp or light, because the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign for ever and ever.
And he said to me, These words are faithful and true; and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to show his servants things which must shortly. –
And behold, I come quickly. Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book!
I, John, who heard and saw these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell at the feet of the angel who showed me to worship him.
But he said to me, See thou do it! I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and who keep the words of this book. Worship God.
And he said unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book.For the time is near.
He that is unjust be unjust still, that he which is filthy be filthy still; and the righteous still justice, and he who is holy continue to be holy.
Behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work.
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.
Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city!
But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie!
I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright and morning star.
And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him who is thirsty come; And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to them, God to him the plagues described in this book;
and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the tree of life and the holy city described in this book.
He who testifies to these things says, Yes, I come quickly. Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all!
Keep preciously well alight the flame of our faith! She will be indispensable in difficult times that worsen and worsen again and again until the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.
See you soon.
Before we leave and awaiting the return of our Lord Jesus Christ, I want to help you meditate on human history.
Official science rejects creationism (creation of man by God) and puts forward a theory without God.
Who would want that man comes from a chain of evolution of life on Earth would have appeared in a series of chances and then the son would be transformed over millions of years.
Finally ending with registration whole host of plant and animal life that we know.
Of course the official science has twists but we must face the facts, all the scientists who support the theory of evolution are intelligent beings and therefore they know they are wrong and yet they persist.
All I can say is that human life is strewn with mysteries and some men for unknown reasons hidden truths to mankind for thousands of years.
Jesus Christ is the only son of God!
It is at the door and his return is imminent!
Keep the Faith!
Soon the man’s history will be revealed!
Here is a video that will allow you to open your eyes and understand that man’s history is much more complex than in the books of official stories!
