This is how my spirit picked it: When you testify about Jesus even in the midst of trials and tribulation you are actually prophesying a change from that situation. When you testify that Jesus is the healer to are declaring that Jesus is healing you! In any situation testifying about Jesus prophetically acknowledges what the WORD of God says about that ...

The scroll, I believe, is our hope in seemingly hopeless situations where we otherwise would have given up. Jesus opened this document, providing an understanding of the Bible, and that brings us hope. Fact is, no one truly understands the Testaments without the help of the Holy Spirit. The scroll is simply the Bible; that is the only thing that God has ...

ὁ ἐρχόμενος could merely be saying that God will continue to be in the future but if taken as "will be coming in the future then we see that graphically described in chapter 21. The traditional hope of the Christian is to "go to heaven" but the scriptural hope has always been to live with God in the promised land: Rev 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, ...

Context is the Key From the question, and by reading the text, it is apparent that the Context is Figurative; therefore it is not the reality in itself but representative of that reality. Rev. 12:3 says, And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. ...

It is doubtful here ...

The third woe is strike three, you're out, the last day of the week begins. If the 70th week is seven years then it makes sense that the day of the Lord is the last year. Not good. Since these folks were wholly deceived and ruthless, they must be judged. As Jesus once replied to one who was considering following him: Let the dead bury the dead. ...

The man child in Revelation is Jesus the Christ. This symbolic scene has already taken place. If one compares chapter 12 of Revelation to Matthew chapter 2, all the characters listed in chapter 12 of Revelation are revealed in Matthew chapter 2. The woman, (symbolic for a church), is Judah, or the Church in the wilderness, (see Acts 7:38), for Judah was ...

The wording of Rev 2:4 Revelation 2:4 Ἀλλὰ ἔχω κατὰ σοῦ (Robinson-Pierpoint MT 1995) Literally this translates as: But I have this1 against you (ESV) The wording of Rev 2:14 Revelation 2:14 Ἀλλ᾽ ἔχω κατὰ σοῦ ὀλίγα (Robinson-Pierpoint MT 1995) Literally this translates as: But I have a few things against you (Rev 2:14 ESV) The wording of Rev 2:20 ...

No, that doesn't suggest they were "Jewish Christians". Christians in the first century viewed themselves as Israel, continued and expanded -- the "true" Jews. Their Bible was the Hebrew Bible. They took responsibility for knowing the (OT) Scriptures. These were characteristics of the first-century Christian. And the Christians in these churches did know ...
