Revelations a Study. Section 16. Written by Rev.Anthony Smith
Revelations a Study. Section 16. The Number of man killed in three battles for earth is stagering. We have never seen such destruction and bloodshed in this life. The Reason that we continue to preach and teach scriptures is because of pain and torment that will befall many. Some try to say that Christianity will convert world. This is a miss leading statment and also false. The apostile Paul stated that, 1Co 9:22 “To weak became I as weak, that I might gain weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.” That I might by all means save some. And this is our purpose here, to try to win as many as we can before its too late. 1Co 9:23 And this I do for gospel's sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you. Chapter 20:1 thru 20:15, The binding of Satan, The first resurrection, Judgment, Satan, beast, and false prophet cast into Lake of Fire. This section speaks of thousand year reign of Christ upon earth. This verse is literial. Rev 20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having key of bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. This verse is literial. Rev 20:2 And he laid hold on dragon, that old serpent, which is Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, This verse is literial. Rev 20:3 And cast him into bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive nations no more, till thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.= Satan being bound by Christ will have no power untill he is realeased after thousand years and at that time will be allowed to run wild untill He is finally defeated by Christ. This verse is literial. Rev 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw souls of them that were beheaded for witness of Jesus, and for word of God, and which had not worshipped beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. Rev 20:5 But rest of dead lived not again until thousand years were finished. This is first resurrection. Many believe that there will only be one but scripture speaks otherwise. Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in first resurrection: on such second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. The second death is final judgment of lost where they are resurected to judgment, tried, convicted andsentanced to lake of fire. This verse is literial. Rev 20:7 And when thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, This verse is literial. This is final battle of Gog and Magog, there was two. Rev 20:8 And shall go out to deceive nations which are in four quarters of earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: number of whom is as sand of sea. All nations on earth will compass about Jeruselam and there by be destroyed. This is contrary to what many are teaching about Jerusalem. The Battles will be fought there.

Revelations A Study.Section 14. Chapter 19:4 thru 19:10, marriage supper of Lamb. These verses are literial and self explanitory. I will add no intrepretation to them just a few references. Rev 19:4 And four and twenty elders and four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia. Rev 19:5 And a voice came out of throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great. Rev 19:6 And I heard as it were voice of a great multitude, and as voice of many waters, and as voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Rev 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for marriage of Lamb is come, and his wife [the church] hath made herself ready. [ Rev_21:2, Rev_21:9; Psa_45:10-16; Son_3:11; Isa_62:5; Hos_2:19, Hos_2:20; Mat_22:2; Mat_25:1-10; 2Co_11:2; Eph_5:32 and his: Isa_52:1] Rev 19:8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for fine linen is righteousness of saints. Rev 19:9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto marriage supper of Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are true sayings of God. Rev 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have testimony of Jesus: worship God: for testimony of Jesus is spirit of prophecy.End 14.
