Holy Bible

The book of Revelation unveils Jesus Christ in His relationship to the church, judgement and what is to come.  Revelation is a prophecy and was meant to be read in the churches.

  • The Preterist view is a symbol of the struggles of the Church against Rome.
  • The historic view is a symbol of the historic problems the Church has had with the world.
  • The spiritual view is an allegory without direct application to actual events.
  • The futurist view is an account of what is to come (this is my view).

“Seven” represents completeness: seven colors in a rainbow, seven days in a week, etc.

“First begotten” refers to Jesus being raised from the dead. Jesus is the faithful witness and our example of  being a representative of God in our lives.

The Church with reign with Jesus during the Kingdom Age.

The seven candlesticks refer to the Old Testament tabernacle when Israel was God’s light in the world. In revelation, the church had taken this place.

The message from Christ to the seven churches are applied in three different ways:  written to the churches at that time, seven periods of church history and universal message to His churches.
