comment Based on Genesis 4:26, upon whom did Adam call?
Adam spoke face to face with the Creator. After the fall many things slowly began to deteriorate. Cain and Abel brought offerings to the LORD and were spoken to directly also by the Creator. It seems to be that in the next generations, this did not happen as often anymore, so they began to pray to speak to the LORD, as this seems to support.

comment Should we read Melchizedek in Genesis 14 to be metaphorical?
After reading this. How could He possibly not be Jesus? "For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace; Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually." Hebrews 7:1-3

comment Does Christ return to Heaven after the thousand year reign, and then return to earth after the seventh trumpet?
The 144,000 that did not receive the mark of the beast of their forehead or their hand. The verse seems, at first glance, to say that the martyrs rule with them also.

As for why I say this, is because it is clearly said in Revelation 20:4 "And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the 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."

Now the priests and kings are us, the followers of Christ. "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy." 1 Peter 2:9-10 and when they reign is after the first resurrection. It is the same group of people but the reign takes place in heaven, and then on earth once the earth is renewed after the 1000 years are fulfilled.

For example the seven churches represent the spiritual history of the church from after the ascension of Jesus to the second coming of Jesus, the seven seals which represent represent the political history from this time period, and the seven trumpets represent a military history of the church from this time period. These revelations run concurrent as they are three different aspects of the history to the church. Of course these revelations from God are multidimensional and can be applied to other areas of life, but in regards to church history, this is what these mean.

We must read this in its full context. Starting at Revelation 4. In the very first first it tell us where this is happening. "After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven..." And John was taken in spirit to heaven. He saw the throne of God, the four beasts, and the 24 elders. This happens before any of the seals were opened. In chapter 6 the seals are opened. There are many things in Revelation that are parallel.

Yes, it does seem like that. The good thing is that even though the pieces are scattered, the answers can all be found within the Bible itself. Prayerfully study this book and do not become frustrated by it, as there is a blessing that comes straight from our LORD for those who read and seek to understand Revelation. Revelation 1:3 "Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand."

It is hard to come up with a chronological answer as Revelation is not in chronological order and is also written in symbols that can only be understood by looking in the rest of Scripture. See my answer and if you have any questions let me know.

comment As in Heaven so in Earth Luke 11:2
Hello Dan! Your last sentence was interesting. Would you please expound? I personally prefer the King James Version because, as far as I know, it comes from the Textus Receptus. My knowledge on the matter is limited, but I would like to hear your perspective on the Textus Receptus and the Byzantine text.
