Revelations a Study.Section 10. Written by Rev.Anthony Smith

[Mat_7:15; Rom_16:18; 2Co_11:13-15 Rev 13:12] Rev 13:11continued; And he exerciseth all power of first beast before him, and causeth earth and them which dwell therein to worship first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. The most exciteing thing about Bible is that every thing, ever verse, every chapter ties together. these next few verses help explane Rev. 13:11 thru 13:18. “2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, son of perdition; 2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. 2Th 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not love of truth, that they might be saved. 2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 2Th 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” “The son of perdition”; is not saying that anti-christ is son of Satan but that he has all attributes of Satan. The largest part of Chapter 13 of Revelations is self explanitory. Rev 13:13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on earth in sight of men, Rev 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on earth by means of those miracles which he had power to do in sight of beast; saying to them that dwell on earth, that they should make an image to beast, which had wound by a sword, and did live. These next verses explain Rev 13:13 thru 17. Lets Read. Dan 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute sanctuary of strength, and shall take away daily sacrifice, and they shall place abomination that maketh desolate.Dan 12:11 And from time that daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.Mat 24:15 When ye therefore shall see abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel prophet, stand in holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Rev 13:15 And he had power to give life unto image of beast, that image of beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship image of beast should be killed. Rev 13:16 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: Rev 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had mark, or name of beast, or number of his name. There are many different intrepretations of Rev 13:18, Numerlogy doesnt work, nor is it a resurected man, that is against scripture. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count number of beast: for it is number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. The number 666 is a mans name in pure Hebrew dialict which God said that He would restore to people of Israel. To guess on name would be non constructive. So I must leave it way it is for now. end section 10.

Revelations, A Study. section 2.Written by Rev.Anthony Smith
Continued from page 1
Rev 22:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in churches. I am root and offspring of David, and bright and morning star. Rev 2:22, “Bed”,The outer garment worn by day by poor. Used to cover themselves and to sleep in. “Kill” literally. Here God threatens a great show of Force to put fear into other churches. Not everyone at this church was involved with Jezebel hense Rev 2:24 But unto you I say, and unto rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden. 5.Sardis. Sardis was destroyed by an earthquake. Rev 3:4 “Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.” Only a few people were saved out of this church. 6.Philadelphia. Destroyed by Earthquake. Rebuilt This was church of love.(Gibbon.) The Turks call it Allah Shehr, "city of God"; or rather, "beautiful ('alah) city." In Rev 3:9, Jesus promissed them that He would make them, of synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; come and worship before their feet, and to know that Jesus has loved their Church . These next two verses are prophecy. Lets read. Rev 3:10 Because thou hast kept word of my patience, I also will keep thee from hour of temptation [future tense], which shall come [future tense] upon all [every nation] world, to try them that dwell [Live] upon earth. Rev 3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold [maintain] that fast which thou hast [faith], that no man take [remove] thy crown. If it were not posiable to fall away from salvation, this statment would not be written. Philadelphia was and still is a model church, well spoken of by Christ. Still exist. 7.Laodicea.Destroyed.A lukewarm church. Rich monitarily but poor Spiritually. All Jesus could do was warn them. Discriptions of Christ in section 2. Eph 1:22 And hath put all things under his [Jesus] feet, and gave him [Jesus] to be head over all things to church, a.These things saith he that holdeth seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in midst of seven golden candlesticks. B.These things saith Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass. c.The morning star. D. These things saith he that hath seven Spirits of God, and seven stars. E.These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth. F.These things saith Amen, faithful and true witness, beginning of creation of God; [Col 1:15 Who is image of invisible God, firstborn of every creature.] Before we leave section 2. We must cover a popular intrepretation of The Seven Churches. If we look into hystory we can see a similarity between Churches and Church timelines. Churches ages. I wont get into times and dates for its most confuseing at times and it leades to division amoung many. But as for last two churches, Philadelphia and Laodicea, we see a resemblence between discriptions of Christ of two and events of last 200 years and today. If ever there was a time of lukewarmness in Church it is today. Zec 4:14 Then said he, These are two anointed ones, that stand by Lord of whole earth.[ The Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit] end section 2.
