Revelation


The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants the things that must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, and then apostle John wrote down and sent to the 7 stars of 7 churches. Almost all chapters of Revelation are the “symbolic” form to show messages from God Father through Jesus Christ. All Churches over the world should read the words of this prophecy of Revelation, for the End Day is near.


Chapter 2 and 3 of Revelation is about the seven Stars and the seven golden Lampstands. The seven Lampstands are the seven Churches, and the seven Stars are the seven angels of the seven Churches, which is the mystery. What does it mean “this is the mystery”? Surely, what Jesus said was not just the status quo of those 7 Stars and 7 Churches at that time. It should be much more rich meaning about that, because Jesus said it is the mystery. If he was talking about their situation only, that’s perfectly clear, how come he said it was a mystery? The mystery means nobody can understand, and people can understand the mystery only when Jesus reveals it. That’s why we can say it should be much more rich meaning. This is about the mystery of “a time, times, half a time” period.


Chapter 4 and 5 is about God’s throne and the Lamb(Jesus). There was a scroll given to the lamb, and only he could open and read it. This scroll was written within and on the back, sealed with seven seals. The scroll reveals what things will be happened in 7 Churches period, after that will be the New Heaven and New Earth appeared. There were 7 seals on the scroll, Jesus opened it one by one, from the first to the sixth, and then the seventh.


When Jesus opened the seventh seal, there were seven trumpets given to the seven angels. They blew the trumpets one by one, from the first to the sixth, and then the seventh.


When the seventh angel blew the seventh trumpet, there were seven bowls(symbolic the wrath of God) given to the seven angels. Seven bowls means seven plagues, which was the last to pour out, the wrath of God will be finished. After the seven bowls poured out, a loud voice came out of the temple, from the throne, saying, “It is done!”. Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great!


What does it mean of seven seals?


Jesus opened the seven seals this vision was revealed by God to save his modern people. This same as God’s deliverance of the Israelis from Egypt, the experience of Israelis left Egypt became the symbol for God to save his people at the End Day.


The night before the Israelis left Egypt, they slaughtered the lamb and smeared the blood on the door frame. Israelis smeared the blood on the door, this symbolized the sacrifice of the lamb Jesus.


The next day they left Egypt and entering the Promised Land. After that, they stayed a long long time in wilderness. From they left Egypt to entering the Promised Land officially, they used 40 years. This symbolized after Jesus had been slain, and there were seven seals opened.


Acts 1:3 “He(Jesus) presented himself alive to them after his suffering by many proofs, appearing to them during forty days and speaking about the kingdom of God.”


Why Jesus not stayed with disciples one month, two months or half year but 40 days? “40 Days” should be with symbolic meaning. Matthew 28:20 “…And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age”. So the “40 days” symbolic Jesus would stay with disciples till to the end of the age. It was same as the “Israelis in wilderness 40 years” period, this “40 years” symbolic the period of opening the six seals of Revelation. Actually it was a long long period, and opening the seventh seal symbolic the End Day.


When Israelis began entering the Promised Land at the end of 40 years in wilderness, 7 priests blew the trumpets in seven days, and then the Jericho was fallen and destroyed. That symbolized the 7th seal opened period(the end day). In this period, seven trumpets and seven bowls were given to angels to blow and pour out.


Someone very important was showed up at that time. Joshua 5:13,14 says, “13 When Joshua was by Jericho, he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, a man was standing before him with his drawn sword in his hand. And Joshua went to him and said to him, “Are you for us, or for our adversaries?” 14 And he said, “No; but I am the commander of the army of YHWH. Now I have come…”.


Yes, the commander of YHWH God’s army would fight this war and destroyed the Jericho. Maybe this commander was Michael and it also symbolic him shall arise at the end time again.


Daniel 12:1 says, “At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble(the great tribulation), such as never has been since there was a nation till that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone whose name shall be found written in the book”.


Yes, angel Michael has war with Satan in the seventh seal. Seven priests of Israelis blew the seven trumpets, it symbolic seven angels blew seven trumpets in Revelation. The Priests blew one time a day from the first to the sixth day, it symbolic angels blew 6 trumpets.


On the 7th day, priests blew the trumpets “7 times” at that day. It symbolized when the angel blew the 7th trumpet, “7 bowls” were given to another 7 angels to pour out in Revelation, who “clothed in pure, bright linen, with golden sashes around their chests” like Priests. After that, Jericho was fallen and destroyed, this symbolic Babylon the great will be fallen and destroyed too.


Jehovah God declared the Jericho never rebuild again symbolic “Babylon the great” will be destroyed and disappear forever.


Revelation 18:21 says,

21 Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying,

“So will Babylon the great city be thrown down with violence,
    and will be found no more;”


When the Jericho destroyed, it symbolic Israelis started to enter the Promised Land officially. When “Babylon the great” is destroyed, God’s people is also entering the New Heaven and New Earth(Promised Land) officially.


Revelation 21:1,2 says, “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 the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God…”


Have you seen that from Israelis left Egypt and to the Promised Land is similar to the seven seals, seven trumpets and seven bowls in Revelation? Has this mystery been solved and revelated? Yes, it should be, all revelation comes from Jesus and all glory and honor to the Father and Jesus Christ. Amen.

In chapter 6 of Revelation, the Lamb(Jesus) started to open the sealed scroll. Opening the first seal to the fourth seal were the white horse, the red horse, the black horse and the pale horse. When the fifth seal opened was “the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the witness they had borne” crying. They got message from God and needed to keep waiting. When Jesus opened the sixth seal, “there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood, and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale”. What does it mean? Let’s see the further articles later.


In chapter 7, John saw four angels holding back the 4 winds. They did not let the winds blow on earth or sea or tree, until the 144000 saints have been sealed. 144000 are the 12 tribes of the heavenly Israel. At that time, a great multitude that no one could number appeared, they will come out from the great tribulation. This tells us when the seventh seal opened, sealing 144000 saints will be finished and then will be the great tribulation. There will be a great multitude saved and survived from the great tribulation.


In chapter 8, the Lamb opened the seventh seal. There were 7 trumpets given to 7 angels, 7 trumpets symbolized 7 disasters. The first disaster was “a third of the earth was burned up, and a third of the trees were burned up”. The second disaster was “a third of the sea became blood”. The third was “a third of the waters became wormwood” and the fourth was “a third of the sun was struck, and a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of their light might be darkened”. An eagle cried “Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth, at the blasts of the other trumpets that the three angels are about to blow!”. This means that when the angels blow the 5th to 7th trumpets, the great tribulation will come.


In chapter 9, the fifth angel blew the 5th trumpet. Locusts from the bottomless pit were allowed to torment people for five months, but not to kill them, and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings someone. This disaster foreshadows the great tribulation has to come. When the sixth angel blew the trumpet, the four winds will be released while the four angels are holding , that means the sealing of 144000 saints will be completed. When the four winds release, a third of mankind will be killed by the “mounted troops was twice ten thousand times ten thousand” using the fire and smoke and sulfur, then the Great Tribulation will come officially.


In chapter 10 and 11, during the same period of great tribulation, there was a mighty angel coming down from heaven, wrapped in a cloud, with a rainbow over his head. He had a little scroll in his hand. The little scroll was about the mystery of God. A message has given to Apostle John, he took the little scroll and ate, “You must again prophesy about many peoples and nations and languages and kings.”


During that period, there was a measuring rod like a staff given to John, “Rise and measure the temple of God and the altar and those who worship there…”. There are two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, symbolized two olive trees and the two lampstands. When they have finished their testimony, the beast that rises from the bottomless pit will make war and kill them. But after the three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, they stood up on their feet and went to the heaven.


Then the second woe has passed. this is the sixth trumpet. The third woe(the final) and the seventh trumpet is soon to come. When the seventh trumpet blow, it means “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our God and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.”


The chapter 12 and 13 tell us something about God’s kingdom in heaven. There was a heavenly woman gave birth a son who is to rule all the nations. The great red dragon wanted to devour him, but the child was caught up to God and to his throne. There was a war in heaven, Michael and his angels fight against the dragon and his angels. They were defeated and thrown down to the earth. Then the dragon pursued the woman and her other children 1260 days, or “a time, and times, and half a time”.


Although the dragon was thrown down and can’t back to the heaven, but he still reigned the earth. Revelation 6:14 “The sky(old heaven) vanished like a scroll that is being rolled up”, the old heaven has passed and the new heaven has to come. He gave his authority to the beast which has ten horns and seven heads. One of its heads seemed to have a mortal wound, but its mortal wound was healed.  “Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?”


It was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months, opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God and made war with the saints. There was another beast rising out of the earth, It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence. All to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark. The name of the beast or the number of its name is 666.


In Revelation chapter 14, God’s kingdom established on Mount Zion stood the Lamb, and with him 144,000. The sealed 144000 saints and Jesus are the kings of heavenly kingdom. All nations and people should fear God and give him glory, because the hour of God’s judge has come. The first is Babylon the great, and then the beast and its worshipper. The hour to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is fully ripe. Finally is the climax of the great tribulation come to the earth, another angel swung his sickle across the earth and gathered the grape harvest of the earth and threw it into the great wine press of the wrath of God. This is the message about the seventh trumpet.


In chapter 15,16 John saw God again, the saints 144000 sing the song of Moses, the servant of God and the song of the Lamb. Then the sanctuary of the tent in heaven was opened. When the angel blow the seventh trumpet, there are seven bowls full of God’s wrath give to the seven angels to pour out. This is the final disaster. Angels pour out the God’s wrath to the earth, the sea, rivers, the sun, the throne of the beast and then…


When the sixth bowl pour out to the great river Euphrates, the “demonic spirits, performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God the Almighty” – called Armageddon. And then the seventh angel pour out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple, from the throne, saying, “It is done!”. This is the climax of the great tribulation. God remembered Babylon the great, to make her drain the cup of the wine of the fury of his wrath.


In the chapter 17,18 angel explained that Babylon the great represents the abomination and the mother of prostitutes, who was drunk with the blood of the saints and rode on the beast. The beast will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer. And the ten horns beast will hate the prostitute. They will make her desolate and naked, and devour her flesh and burn her up with fire when the seventh bowl poured out. What is the meaning of Babylon the great? It seems a very important part of this mystery.


The kings of the earth, the merchants, all shipmasters and seafaring men, sailors and all whose trade is on the sea crying out “Alas, alas, for the great city
    where all who had ships at sea
    grew rich by her wealth!
For in a single hour she has been laid waste.”


Babylon the great like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, and will be found no more.


In Revelation chapter 19, After Babylon the great destroyed, the loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, crying out, “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God”. And then the beast and the kings of the earth with their armies gathered to make war against Jesus(King of the kings) and against his army. The beast and the false prophet were captured, thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur.


In chapter 20, an angel who seized the dragon the ancient serpent, threw him into the bottomless pit, bound him for a thousand years. Apostle John saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God resurrected, reigned with Christ for a thousand years. This is the first resurrection. And when the thousand years ended, Satan will be released from his prison to deceive the nations. They surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city, but fire came down from heaven and consumed them, and the devil was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur. Then God will seat on the great white throne, the dead will be judged by what was written in the book of life, according to what they had done.


In chapter 21,22 the holy city, new Jerusalem, come down of heaven from God. The dwelling place of God is with man, he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore. The wife of the Lamb symbolic the “New Jerusalem”, which the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. The holy city is constructed with gold, rare jewel and pearls, full of the Glory of God.


Then the angel showed us the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb. On either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing the nations. Serpent’s head will be bruised(smashed), the curse will be no more . “It is done!”, the new heaven and new earth have come true, and all prophecies have been fulfilled. Amen.


May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.


There is an interesting question : Why Father YHWH God use seals, trumpets and bowls to show us the revelation? What does it mean of these three things?


“Seals” means only Jesus can open it, he can take control how and when to open the seals.


When Jesus open the 7th seal, seven trumpets are blown. What does it mean? It means it will be the loud and clear voice(message) of trumpet sounded for the people who dwell on the earth. Can you hear(see) it? May we all can hear and see the message from the trumpets.


Pour out the bowls means the judgement of God for the beast and “Babylon the great”… let them to drink or eat God’s wrath.
