The chief thing to notice about the reference to the first resurrection in Revelation 20 (the vision is of souls not bodies and would seem, from the language used, to take place in Heaven not on earth - 20:4) is that it is contrasted, not with any subsequent resurrection, but with “the second death” (Rev 20:6). Therefore, understanding what constitutes the ...

Soon after John mentions that he was in spirit on the Lords day he is instructed to write letters to the seven churches of Asia in his time. Yes, his time! The first century. If he was transferred to thousands of years into the future in the cataclysmic Day of the Lord, would that not place the seven churches into the distant future? But those churches were ...

>In Revelation 20:14, what is Death, Hades, and the Lake of Fire? My thoughts on this question: o "Death" is physical death. o "Hades" is the place of the dead (usually used of the wicked dead in the NT). o "Death" and "hades" go together since each one implies the other. o "Death" often occurs in the same verse as "hades" in OT verses (in the ...

The respective descriptions of time sequences (forty-two months, 1,260 days, and Time, Times & Half) appear to be synonymous. That is, parallels seem to appear when the end time is "rolled out," which appears to be Daniel's scroll that had been sealed until the end time (Daniel 12:9). The end time of Revelation is therefore one scroll - please click ...

How did i arrive at this conclusion ? In Revelation 11 we read, I was ...

There are numerous and varied sources to choose from, both quoted in previous answers and in other commentaries, so rather than indulge in the wide range of opinions on this topic, I will attempt to highlight key essentials in understanding the truths of Revelations, and attempt to draw a conclusion on Rev. 6:12-17. Progression of the Seals What must be ...

Short Answer No. I am not aware of any system of understanding Revelation that puts the 7th seal before the 6th. The 6th is either viewed as contemporaneous or preceding the 7th. Two Major Views NOTE: The following discussion is from a futurist perspective of Revelation. Robert L. Thomas discusses two major views on Revelation (note, these are not the ...

The seals, trumpets, and bowls appear to be cascading events, which the following graph depicts - This model reflects the plain and normal reading of the text of Revelation. For example, the breaking of the seventh seal indicates the "revelation" of the seven trumpets. Revelation 8:1-2 (NASB) 1 When the Lamb broke the seventh seal, there was silence ...

These final events lead up to the end of the "Laws of the Circumcision of the Flesh" (The Laws given through Moses) Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail. (Revelation 11:19 NKJV) We can see in the conclusion here that ...

To answer this question, What one has to remember is the blood on the robe that the rider on the white horse wears,is symbolic and the verse is to be interpreted symbolically(taken from here) Since what the rider wears is symbolic(or figurative-representitive of another reality), therefore the horse he rides on is also figurative. Both riders ...

The Campaign of Armageddon Two answers here in particular survey various ideas about the blood—Mark Edward's and Davïd's and both settle in a conclusion of being that of the enemies, which is also (a bit more cryptically) the conclusion of Babpipes answer of "Goats" blood. This answer shares that same conclusion, that it is enemies blood, but with a ...

The Idea in Brief Those who follow the Lamb in heaven are clothed in white except the Lamb, who was slain and whose robe appears late in the narrative drenched in blood. So there is imagery that His blood was not only the basis for saving and making the robes of the elect to be white, but was also the basis for defeating sin and its power. That is, the ...

Reading Revelation 19 with chapter 14 As a quick preface, I think the imagery from Revelation 19, of the blood-spattered robe and the winepress, needs to be read in unison with Revelation 14, where we also find the winepress image being used. Some writers are evenly split between Views 1 and 3, described below, with a few actually holding to both. Davïd ...

In answer to the question: What did God mean when He said Let us make men in our image, which can be found in genesis Genesis 1:26-27 was translated on the premise that the Hebrew word Elohim translated to God is a plural form. Bible use of that word indicates Elohim is a word of high deference when used in reference to YaHavah and Jesus and in a lesser ...

What one has to remember is the blood on the robe that the rider on the white horse wears,is symbolic and the verse is to be interpreted symbolically.An example of this method of interpretation is in this same chapter of Revelation at verse 15 where we read, Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. When this ...

It's possible to be a little more emphatic about the connection to Isaiah 63:3 which is routinely cited by commentators as an "intertext" for Revelation 19:13. This is a significant connection because, as noted in the question, this is judgment context, and the "blood" in question is that of the LORD's enemies. But (again, as noted), in Revelation the ...
