(Rev 1:1-6)  The Revelation [Gk: apokalupsis] of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to show unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: Who bare record of the word [Gk: logos] of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ [i.e., the rhema of God], and of all things that he saw. Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy [Gk: prediction], and keep [Gk: to guard (from loss or injury, prop. by keeping the eye upon] those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. John to the seven churches [representing a composite of all churches] which are in Asia [modern Turkey]: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us [Gk: to bathe (the whole person)] from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests [Rev 5:10] unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

1.      revelation = Gk: “apocalypse”; disclosure:--appearing, coming, lighten, manifestation, be revealed ///  to take off the cover, i.e. disclose:--reveal. [very much the rhema of God in logos apparel]


(Rev 1:7,8)  Behold, he cometh with clouds [Rev 19:14]; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him [the unsaved descendents of the Jews who pierced him; also referring to current unbelievers]: and all [the remaining unsaved] kindreds of the earth shall wail [Gk: beat the breast in grief: lament, mourn] because of him. Even so, Amen. I am Alpha and Omega [the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet], the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

1.      (Rev 19:11-16)  And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True [in direct contrast to the first “white horse” (Rev 6:2) of “strong delusion” (2 Thes 2:11)], and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire [all-seeing and judgmental, burning up the chaff], and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture [Gk: garment, robe] dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God [“logos” John 1:14 (the visible aspect)]. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean [“the fine linen is the righteousness of saints” Rev 19:8]. And out of his mouth goeth [His tongue which is] a sharp [twoedged] sword [the Word of God: “logos” Heb 4:12; “rhema” Eph 6:17] that with it he should smite [wound and/or kill] the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod [Gk: sceptre, staff] of iron [iron is the biblical symbol of judgment]: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

a.      (1 Cor 15:46)  Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

b.      (Rev 6:1,2)  And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow [but no arrows, i.e., giving the illusion of power]; and a crown [single vs. “many”] [a crown of Strong Delusion] was given unto him [the father of lies: John 8:44]: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

c.      (Jude 1:22,23)  And of some have compassion [Gk: pity, mercy], making a difference: And others save with fear [Gk: alarm or fright: be afraid, terror], pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

2.      (Mat 24:29)  [THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE SIXTH SEAL] Immediately after [i.e., the conclusion of] the [great] tribulation [the fifth seal of Rev 6] of those days shall the sun be darkened [Gk: obscured in darkness], and the moon shall not give her [reflected] light [note also the female gender] [i.e., she will be clothed in darkness, a probable allusion to Islam], and the stars shall fall from heaven [dennoting the fall from rule and power of the previously mighty unto eternal separation from God (love), and solitary death; the fall from Light into Darkness], and the powers of the heavens [(plural): both angelic and human powers] shall be shaken:

a.      shaken = Gk: to waver, i.e. agitate, rock, topple or (by impl.) destroy: move, stir up.

b.      (Heb 12:26-29)  Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire.

3.      (Mat 24:30)  [THE SIXTH SEAL: THE COMING…] And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the [unsaved] tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
