Revelations a Study. Section 1. Written by Rev.Anthony Smith
Revelations a Study. Section 1. Lets look at sections before we get into great detail. Section 1 includes, Chapter 1:1 thru 1:18. These verses deal with Author of Revelations Jesus The Christ. Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for time is at hand. As we are imformed in this verse, reading and hearing Book of Revelations is blessed, Key word we must look at is “KEEP.”[To hold; to restrain from departure or removal; not to let go of; to retain in one's power or possession; not to lose; to retain; to detain.] Revelations has yet to be fulfilled as many would like for world to believe. Here we see Jesus comanding us to Posses and retain words of this book. Revelations was not written just for a few and neither were Letters to seven Churches of Asia. Seven in scripture signifies a perfice number.

Revelations a Study. section 3. Written by Rev.Anthony Smith
Revelations a Study. section 3. Section 3 chapters,4:1 thru 5:14. John translated into Throne room of God. No matter whom you may ask, you would probable get many different interpretations of Book of Revelations. My attempt is to give you an insight into prophecy, spiritualism, parables and physical realizations in this book.
In first few verses in Chapter 4 we see a number of different things, 1. a door was opened in heaven 2. And immediately I was in spirit 3. a throne was set in heaven 4. one sat on throne. #1. is spiritual and physical. Just as when God opens up a door for you into areas of this world that were once closed to you and two physical, for Heaven is real. #2. is also both spiritual and physical, transfiguration from body to spirit. It happened often in scripture. For example 2Ki 2:1 And it came to pass, when LORD would take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal. Gen 5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him. #3. A Throne is physical. #4.The Lord God Almighty. Physical The 24 Elders and 24 Thrones.He saw four-and-twenty seats round about throne, not empty, but filled with four-and-twenty elders, presbyters. The Twelve Deciples and 12 Leaders of Church in Old Testimate Times. John sees a place of honour for them before throne of God.[Presbytery The Bible (From Greek a—biblia, meaning "books", which in turn is derived from —byblos meaning "papyrus", from ancient Phoenician city of Byblos which exported papyrus) is sacred scripture of Christianity. The Old Testament, or Hebrew Bible. An elder of congregation in early Christian church. A bishop is an ordained person who holds a specific position of authority in any of a number of Christian churches. The Throne Room is described by John. This is physical. The Sea of Glass = Purity. The Rainbow represents covenant between God and Noah. The four beasts full of eyes before and behind. The number represents Four Gospels. Which are basis of Gods Salvation for Man. 7. And first beast was like a lion, (Courage) and second beast like a calf (Safrifice), and third beast had a face as a man (Wisdom), and fourth beast was like a flying eagle (Strength). The eyes around and about represent all knowledge of not only of mankind but of self. Self evaluation; Matthew 7;5."Thou hypocrite, first cast out beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out mote out of thy brother's eye.
