INTRODUCTION TO THE REVELATION

 

GREETINGS IN THE NAME OF THE LORD,

 

   Today is March 24, 2007, and I am distressed because I know how hard this message will be to receive. I am not particularly happy about it myself. Yet, having been brought to these things by the Word of God and historical record and knowing that a prophet is seldom received in his own house or country, I still must report these things to those I call my brothers and sisters in the Lord.

   How in the world can anybody obey the imperative to “be of one mind and one mouth” when so many Sects have their own point of view on the two Sections of this book? What I mean is this:

Ezk 14:4 Therefore speak unto them, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Every man of the house of Israel that taketh his idols into his heart, and putteth the stumbling block of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to the prophet; I Jehovah will answer him therein according to the multitude of his idols;

 

 Well, can we hope this is only applicable to physical Israel of the Old Covenant and therefore has no bearing on us today? Yet, I find its counter part in the New Covenant that could mean Jesus Christ really is the same yesterday/today/and forever:

 

2Th 2:11-12 and for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

 

Which brings me to this writing and how I have approached the issues herein that I know will greatly anger most! I would ask this question to you reader, how would Jesus be addressing the churches of today in your estimation? The Apostles having just shortly (excluding John) left the scene of this life, we are then given a discourse by the Lord himself to seven Gentile churches. We upon so short a span of time can only find one that receives no negative assessment! If this were so, where then do you suppose we might fit in the Lord’s assessment of the churches today? You perhaps can now appreciate my dilemma in presenting this discourse on two most highly held doctrinal systems in Christendom today?

   I seek no following nor would I likely get one, as I know the content of this presentation will be very hard for many to even read, let alone swallow! Nevertheless, what the very Early Church held as truth I now present to you with the best of hope and the assurance that I have made “the whole council of God” on these matters now known to you. COME, says the Lord, Let us reason together. Peradventure the daystar may arise in our hearts and the Lord pass by and leave a blessing!

   I ask that no one plagiarizes the content herein, but I do grant the right to be quoted in part or in full.

 

Thank you for your indulgence and may we love the truth above all else,

For by it we shall be saved or no,
