Is it a sin to be afraid?
Revelation 21:8 NET
8 But as for the cowards, unbelievers, detestable persons,
murderers, the sexually immoral, and those who practice magic
spells,[a] idol worshipers,[b] and all those who lie, their place[c]
will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur.[d] That[e] is the
Most modern translations use the ...
This is a very difficult question to answer exegetically. Because the whole premise of ‘who’ the bride is is founded on doctrine, traditional interpretation (reasoning), not scripture.
Many use various verses such as Paul’s in his letter to the Ephesians to support their view that the ‘bride’ is the church. But those verses that Paul wrote do not ...
Is the marriage supper of the Lamb in heaven or on earth? Rev. 19:9
The marriage of the Lamb takes place in heaven. Why?
Revelation Vs 19:1 says: "After these things I heard something like a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying,"
The bridegroom, Jesus is now in heaven so those faithful followers promised in marriage must first die and ...
There are two quite distinct questions here that are independent of each other.
Rev 12:17 - Χριστοῦ
The TR is unique in adding Χριστοῦ (= of Christ) at the end of Rev 12:17. It is absent from the UBS5/NA28 text, the SBL text, Souter's GNT text, W&H, the Majority text, the Byzantine text, Pickering's F35 text, Tyndale House GNT text, etc. This addition ...
The meaning of The New Jerusalem "coming down out of Heaven" (the sky) "dressed as a bride adorned for her husband" could not, as is usual with Bible Prophecies, have been understood until it actually happened.
It is surprising therefore that no one seems to have recognised that this description beautifully, if tragically, describes ...
Yes they are the same. Remember Yahshua (Jesus) warned of the scribes. They have been added characters, and removing others since the beginning. In fact, they also changed the translation γραμματεῖς.SCRIBES, to TEACHERS OF THE LAW, because no only were they Covering up that Yahshua exposed them tampering with The Word, they also sowed among the word of God ...
The Sword of Revelation 6:8
Is the sword in Rev 6:8 also from the mouth of Jesus, or at least wielded on behalf of Jesus? "NO"
Revelation 6:8 NET
8 So I looked and here came a pale green horse! The name of the one
who rode it[ was Death, and Hades followed right behind. They were
given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill its population
I think that Daniel and Revelation are obviously connected.
And after 32 captivities [Daniel 9:2,3-19, 2 Chronicles 36:21,22] shall Messiah suffer the death penalty,
but not for Himself. And the people of the prince [John 14:30] that
shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary
and the end thereof shall be with a flood
And she [Israel, ...
The sea was no more. Is this referring to the new earth or is it the first seas that was no more?
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the
old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone. (Rev 21:1 NLT)
The answer is "NO". Genesis 1:10 refers to the literal sea, and since God saw that it was good, it is therefore ...
Different Types of Sword
Translations of "sword" throughout Revelation mask the original language which has two types of swords: ῥομφαία, rhomphaia, and μάχαιρα, machaira. A primary difference is size. Machaira is a small sword or large knife and rhomphaia is larger. Describing either as "double-edged" is unusual as they normally would ...
[Revelation 10:7 NLT] (7) When the seventh angel blows his trumpet, God's mysterious plan will be fulfilled. It will happen just as he announced it to his servants the prophets."
The blowing of the seventh trumpet is spoken about as the arrival of "the Kingdom of our LORD and of his Christ" in the next chapter:
[Revelation 11:15 NASB20] (15) ...
What we are looking at is the word. Arche
the person or thing that commences, the first person or thing in a series, the leader
that by which anything begins to be, the origin, the active cause
the extremity of a thing

Revelation 10:7 '...the mystery of God should be finished' means that the MYSTERY OF WHO GOD IS becomes apparent. Conversely the MYSTERY OF WHO IS AN IMPOSTER GOD becomes apparent also in this process.
This is a question of identity. YHWH is no longer confused with other gods.
How this is achieved is not quite clear. It may relate to the two witnesses of ...
It is a cultural reference to a once wide spread belief in Nero Redivivus:
a belief popular during the last part of the 1st century that the Roman emperor Nero would return after his death in 68 AD. The legend was a common belief as late as the 5th century.
The earliest written version of this legend is found in the Sibylline Oracles. It claims that Nero ...
The prophesy was contemporary with the 6th ruler who was ruling the 4th beast kingdom at the time John wrote the book of Revelation (13:18).
"Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." (KJV)
Present tense verb "is". ...
It looks to me like the translation which reads "of the seven" is the correct one.
Here is the Greek phrase:
...καὶ ἐκ τῶν ἑπτά ἐστιν...
...and out of the seven [he/it] is...
Note, the cardinal number seven (7), that is, ἑπτά.
In Revelation 17:11, it is not given as an ordinal, that is seventh (...
I agree with Nigel’s perspective that the “church is present throughout the age from the ascension of Jesus Christ until his promised return.” This begs the question of when his return is mentioned in Revelation.
1 Cor. 15 52 associates the resurrection of the saints with the last trumpet.
in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for ...
It is true, as commented, that 'churches' is spoken by 'I, Jesus' in what might be called the 'epilogue' of the book, Revelation 22:16, but I understand the point of the question and I am answering the spirit of the question, regarding the body of the whole book, as such.
One view of the entire book of Revelation is that there are seven sections, which are ...
Hebrews 12:1 uses the word νέφος (a mass of clouds) to describe the saints in the spiritual realm. So, it is likely that the phrase in Revelation 1:7 “coming with the clouds” (νεφελῶν) is a variant reference to the cloud of witnesses (angels & saints) that are coming with the Lord to bring about a restoration of all things.
It is interesting how, in ...
Tony cites two great verses for understanding this passage and he inspired me to expand on his answer and give him and the question a vote.
Zechariah 12:10 Then I will pour out on the house of David and on the
people of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and prayer, and they will look
on Me, the One they have pierced. They will mourn for Him as one
mourns for an ...
The only thing I can see common between the Joshua's seven trumpets and the Revelation's seven trumpets is the the phrase "seven trumpets". Other than this incidental phrase, they have nothing in common.
However, the seven trumpets of Revelation appear to have as their object the reverse order of Gen 1 creation. Indeed, there are a number of ...
In terms of responsibility for destroying the earth, every single person on earth today is guilty, to some degree or other. We have all contributed towards global warming / climate change. Even those who advocate drastic steps to stop the world reaching a tipping point are guilty of using cars / aeroplanes, of wasting materials / resources, and I could go on....
The prophesy of Revelation is the fulfillment of the OT prophesies for the woes pronounced against Israel for their sins, and especially Judea /Jerusalem. This was the fulfillment of the destruction of Israel foretold in Deu. 32, and of the 7 woes promised for their sins in Lev. 26:24ff. In prophetic language the "earth" was used for the land and ...
REV 11:18 The nations were angry, and your wrath has come. The time has come for judging the dead, and for rewarding your servants the prophets
and your people who revere your name, both great and small—and for destroying those who destroy the earth.”
Destroy - diaphtheirō - to change for the worse, to corrupt.
“*Are there any clues from the text or the ...
Taking the text of the BLB, we might set out Rev 11:18 as follows:
And the nations were enraged,
and Your wrath came,
and the time for the dead to be judged,
and to give the reward to Your servants, the prophets,
and to the saints,
and to those fearing Your name, the small and the great,
and to destroy those who are destroying the earth."
There are ...
