1. Almighty God the Father begins His message through His Son, Jesus
Blessings promised to all who read and hear this book ( and keep it in their hearts )
hopetotheend.com/blessings.html

The term "angel" here is best understood as "messenger".
"Messenger" is best understood as any one who gets the message out. This may not necessarily be an official person, but rather a person listening to the inner voice of the Holy Spirit of God, and communicating it precisely.

Pastors and Gospel-laymen are angel-messengers--
Malachi 2:7 and 2 Corinthians 8 :23

Jesus is shown here as holding the
7 stars ( messengers ) in His right hand.
Meaning:
All messengers of God's word are accountable unto Him for accuracy and truth. When messengers are led and guided by the Holy Spirit, they are safe in the right hand of God. They are upheld by the Word of God.

The "
7 golden candlesticks" represent the churches ( the "lively stones" of 1 Peter 2:5 ), assemblies or congregations. Romans 11: 17- 26 ] . John sent this message to persons, not buildings. We all belong to the priesthood of believers.
1 Peter 2:5 "a spiritual house a holy priesthood "http://www.blueletterbible.org/Bible.cfm?b=1Pe&c=2&v=5&t=KJV#top


The
7 candlesticks were lit to represent the abiding presence of God, so long as Truth prevailed. When truth fell, the candlestick was removed to "his" place. Obviously the Adversary caused the downfall of that assembly.
The candlestick also represents God as LIGHT ....
1 John 1:5 , meaning God is Truth as revealed in The WORD of God--the Bible . Our Father is called the Father of Lights and Giver of gifts, James 1:17. He gives light, or enlightenment, to the assembly of Believers, also called a "fellowship".

The word " church" ought not to be synonymous with a building. The word "church" actually refers to flesh-and-blood Believers.
1 Corinthians 3:16 and 1 Corinthians 6:19
who have been "called-out" from the voice of the world and who now follow the voice of their Good Shepherd.
( Church as a congregation, company , "a people", an assembly ..
wherever 2 or more are gathered in His name ). Matthew 18:20

Since God has promised to be in the midst of wherever two or more gather in His name, then the lit candlestick
represents God's PRESENCE in the midst of those gathered together in His name. Believers abide in God's presence as the Word of God dwells within.
1 Samuel 3: 1--3
Romans 8: 9 ........ 2 Corinthians 6:16 ... Ephesians 3:17 .... Colossians 3:16 ... 1 John 4: 13 ----
ABIDING in God through His word
JOHN 15 .."A Presence is never mute" -- Carl Reinhart

In
Matthew 25: 1-10, it states that the 5 wise virgins had their lamps lit, and were ready for the Bridegroom.
The five unwise virgins did not have the oil of the Holy Spirit in their lamps ( or lives), and therefore were not ready.
This reveals to us that not all those who are assembled together for worship have their hearts on fire for God --with full commitment to His Word, through obedience to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Hebrews 11:5, 6 .
Only those who are led and guided by the Holy Spirit-- those who are
"alive" ( 1 Thessalonians 4: 17 )
( living out the Gospel in their daily lives, running the race, focused on Jesus
Hebrews 12: 1, 2 ) --- are the five wise virgins who have their lamps lit and are prepared for the Bridegroom, being daily led and guided by the Holy Spirit.

The Church at Ephesus
The term
"Nicolaitanes" is best understood as someone who abuses control over another person. This can be hierarchy, church boards, members, friends, enemies...anyone who has an overdose of control, manipulation and domination over another.
"Return to thy first love". Our First Love is Jesus Christ and His Word, the Bible. Many times ministries get side-tracked with political-social-technological issues. While we must understand the times, our main focus is Jesus Christ and the Gospel message.
We are to carry the message each day that
Jesus alone can save us from our sins. 1 John 4:14  and    John 14:6

Persecution
Rev. 2:9 "the synagogue of Satan " --- those who follow the voice of the adversary
 Here's one in Europe
"It was also a response to Barroso's initiative to engage all religious communities into an interfaith dialogue to promote tolerance and understanding, he said.
The Great Synagogue of Europe will be used for conferences, seminars and concerts, as well as for a memorial service in November marking the 70th anniversary of the Kristallnacht attacks on Jewish premises in Nazi Germany.
http://news.mediaport.info/eng/world/2008/4138.shtml

The Great Synagogue of Brussels, which is located on Rue de la Régence, in the city’s centre, near the law courts, is often described as a "stately Romanesque" building

Rev. 2:9 "which say they are Jews, and are not" -- following tradition
Possibly infers kaballists who engage in Jewish mysticism, and not Scriptural truth. Or it could refer to the newly formed Sanhedrin who want to impose the Noahidic laws upon all peoples.

It is still a mystery as to what the ten days of persecution refers to. Perhaps when the Great Tribulation comes, then it will be known..

Messianic Jews harrassed by "those who say they are Jews but are not "

ARAD (ANS) -- Messianic Jews have called for international protests against violations of religious freedom in Israel. Orthodox Jews have harassed a congregation in the desert town of Arad in Southern Israel for more than 18 months. Messianic Jews number approximately 6,000 in Israel and at least 100,000 worldwide. They believe in the Messiah Jesus Christ. Orthodox Jews regard them as apostates.

"
The Berg family has put together a composite version themselves of what Kabbalah is," says Rick Ross, head of
The Rick A. Ross Institute ... Controversial Groups and Movements in New Jersey. "What Madonna is doing is sacrilegious. She's not Jewish, so she has no idea," says Sara Reguer, chair of the department of Jewish Studies at Brooklyn College, which offers classes in Kabbalah. "It's got nothing to do with Judaism."
Two aspects of Kabbalah that have come under scrutiny are numerology and astrology.
"All that is part of this investigation into the universe. Kabbalists believed the movement of the planets and sky could affect their lives," Rapport says. "They believed they could move the planets. They saw themselves as something larger than themselves." http://www.courier-journal.com/features/2004/08/14/kabbalah.html

The Zohar is not rabbinical commentary on the Torah like the Mishnah or Talmud.
Kaballah has become for Jews who do not know Messiah Yeshua as a counterfeit Holy Spirit.
It is likely that the practices of what is today known as Kabbalah stem from what the witch of Endor
(1 Sh’muel/Samuel 28:7-25) or Simon the magician (Acts 8:9-25) participated in. As you recall, Simon wanted to purchase the Holy Spirit with money, yet the Holy Spirit is freely available to all who know Yeshua as their personal Savior..... like Simon the magician, they are trying to “buy” the Holy Spirit and something is missing.
The parallels between Kaballah and the witchcraft that goes on at Halloween are striking.

"Antipas"--- literal translation means: "against the crowd, or against all ". In today's terminology that would mean that Antipas  was against what was considered "politically correct".

Application for today: When the 666 Mark of the Beast is taken by most people we know, we need to have the courage and conviction to stand alone if need be, and not take the 666 Mark of the Beast.
"The whole world lies in wickedness"  1 John 5:19.

No Chip for me; I just want to be Free !

You can take it, sis can take it , Mom and Dad too;

But I will never ever ever take it ! I just want to be free !

It will cost us everything.

"
Doctrine of Balaam"...seeking money and reward for serving the Holy Ghost
It also implies the intermarriage of different religions (syncretism /universalism ) and includes ecumenism, all-inclusive religion.
"fornication" and "adultery" here have a spiritual meaning of mixing error, heresy and blasphemy with truth.

Good message from John Tng:
5 Doves message board scroll to "Latter Day Letters" :
"For truth by definition is intolerant. The devil will have you believe all religions should be tolerant towards each other, and believers of all faiths should refrain from claiming theirs is the only truth. How ingenious a lie! There is only one slight problem. What do you do with the followers of Jesus who insist that He is the Only Way, and that no one comes to the Father except through Him?

Do not be surprised when these so-called 'pacifists' will suddenly turn very intolerant of you and even label you as intolerant. These are hypocrites, since by their show of intolerance they just prove that they cannot unite everyone and show tolerance to everyone.
"

Spiritual Delusion
-- by A. W. Tozer
Throughout the whole world error and truth travel the same highways, work in the same fields and factories, attend the same churches, fly in the same planes and shop in the same stores.
So skilled is error at imitating truth that the two are constantly being mistaken for each other."

A QUOTE :
" Truth sits forsaken and grieves until her professed followers come home for a brief visit,
but she sees them depart again when the bills become due.
They protest great and undying love for her but they will not let their love cost them anything!

Is Pope Francis the "green" puppet of the UN ?   (cry for him argentina )
http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/how-pope-franciss-not-yet-official-document-on-climate-change-is-already-stirring-controversy/2015/06/17/ef4d46be-14fe-11e5-9518-f9e0a8959f32_story.html

Pope Francis' latest decree ( June 2015 ) hints at endorsing population control, [denying life to segments of society ] and has broad terms for gender ID which could morph into a person deciding his own gender ID.
Yes, we are to be responsible citizens of our planet, but the ACTUAL moral authority comes from God in
Genesis 1:26... that individuals  have the dominion over God's creation as good stewards.  Adam did not obey a pope.  Adam did not throw plastic and disposable trash all around. It is Corporation's GREED that gave us a disposable world and land fills glutted with plastic. When will the "green" preachers take on the big corporations ? Never. When will they outlaw plastic ? Never.

When a pope assumes God's role as the planet's moral authority, he is usurping God.
He is not God' representative on earth. Only Jesus represented God upon earth. Emmanuel.

3. Chapter Three: Letters to the Churches of Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea
AUDIO
http://www.enduringword.com/library_commentaries.html David Guzik
Text Rev. 3 www.blueletterbible.org/kjv/Rev/Rev003.html

Church of Sardis

Note from : Hope To The End: It is our belief that the Sardis Church represents two groups of people
A.)  Those who have their lamps trimmed and are ready to go with the Bridegroom in the Rapture.

Matthew 25:1--10
Those who are watching Bible Prophecy closely will KNOW when the Midnight Rapture will take place. 1 Thessalonians 5: 1--6
( after the man of sin sits in the temple as God, showing himself as God ... 2 Thessalonians 2: 4 )

B.) The other group within the Sardis Church were not ready ( not fully committed to walking in the Spirit ) and will not go in the Midnight Rapture. Part of the Sardis Church will be left behind.
Those left behind will perhaps go through the stages of anger and resentment. But then hopefully they will repent , and serve the Lord wholeheartedly and will have a chance for the Cockcrowing Rapture.

It is our belief that the Sardis Church, the Philadelphian Church and the Laodicean Church are grouped together in Chapter Three of Revelation since they play significant roles in the very end-times.
Split Rapture: The Sardis Church becomes divided at the time of the Midnight Rapture. Those that remain have a chance for the Cockcrowing Rapture later on, if they repent with a broken spirit and a contrite heart. Psalm 51.

The Philadelphian Church ( we believe ) is made up of Completed, Messianic Jews
Many Messianic Jews will go in the Rapture.
The 144,000 sealed Messianic Jews ( we believe) will remain after the Rapture to proclaim the Gospel world-wide and then they will be Raptured. They are "redeemed from the earth"
Revelation 14:1-- 3

The final Church -- the Laodicean Church -- were compromised Christians. When the Great Tribulation wakens them to repentance, they will have to make a choice. They will either take the 666 economic Mark of the Beast , or not take the 666 mark of the Beast.
To those who overcome the System by NOT taking the Mark of the Beast, they will sit on thrones with Christ, having suffered martyrdom. They will rule and reign with Christ Jesus Our Lord. Rev. 20:4.


"or else I will come upon thee as a thief" refers to the fact that many in the church will miss the rapture, being unaware of the time.

What is the Rapture ?  and also Rapture Index http://hopetotheend.com/rap.html

Please see Biblical Definition  1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18       and also 1 Corinthians 15:51 and 52.
An example of the timing of our Rapture is found in
Exodus 14:10--22, so we believe. It will be just in the nic of time.
Before our Rapture there will be a great priority-shaking of what our true values are. Please see
Hebrews 12:24--29

Main message to Sardis
Repent !

'who say they are Jews but are not' (includes replacement theology..."Christians" who believe erroneously that the Church will bring in a future earthly-Christian kingdom, thus replacing the eternal promises that God made to Israel. ....that He alone will bring in the Godly-Earthly Kingdom.

Revelation 3: 10
" I also will keep you from the hour of temptation which shall come upon the whole world, to try them that dwell upon the earth"
It is our belief that the 144,000 Messianic Evangelistic Jews who are witnessing around the world after the Midnight Rapture, will be "redeemed from the earth" ( Rev. 14:1-3 ) before the Mark of the Beast is globally mandated.

Ezekiel 7:19 tells us that in the last days
gold and silver will be worthless.  Updating that interpretation means that All our paper money will be useless. We will only have digitized "units" in cyberspace for all of our financial transactions. Jesus tells us here that if you want the most valuable thing there is, then attain the "golden" counsel and relationship with Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. THAT has everlasting value.

It has been said that many know the price of everything, but the value of nothing.

4. Chapter Four : God THE FATHER’S Throne in Heaven
AUDIO
http://www.enduringword.com/library_commentaries.html
Text Rev. 4
www.blueletterbible.org/kjv/Rev/Rev004.html

* While most -- or all -- of prophecy teachers teach that the rapture occurs at the beginning of Rev.Chapter Four, it is our belief that the Rapture does not take place until Revelation 11:15. *

"24 elders"--possible meaning: the 12 representatives of the Tribes of Israel, thus representing the Old Testament.
It would also include the 12 Apostles, representing the New Testament.
(please see
Rev. 21:12 and 13)

The Four 'beasts' are better translated as the '
Four Living Creatures' )--possibly representing all of God's creation.
The 4 Living Creatures have 6 wings like the Seraphim in Isaiah 6:2. It is our perception that they go to and fro among the earth and report back to the Father of all they have seen and heard.
The Father then determines that which calls for judgment and makes a decree concerning upon
who, and for how long a time. The Living Creatures (Seraphim) then announce the decree to the individual, Please see Daniel 4 for an example of this. The root of all sin is PRIDE.
The length of time determined upon Nebuchadnezzar was “7 times”. That could be 7 years, or 7 seasons. In Old Testament times there were only 2 seasons per year: Summer and Winter. 7 Seasons could therefore be 3 and ½ years. Only God knows.

Nebuchadnezzar –who formerly acknowledged “Daniel’s God”--- finally had a moment of clarity and realized that there is a God in Heaven higher than ANY being. The HIGHEST God ( El Elyon) was supreme over all and was to be worshipped above all created beings. Chapter 4 of Revelation brings us into the very throne room of El Elyon.

WARNING MUST BE HEEDED

Ezekiel 33 tells all watchmen ( the Church) that if they see the sword coming ( war ) and do not warn the people, then the blood of the people will be upon the watchmen's hands ( teachers of the Word ).

Error
in today's Bible Prophecy teaching:
To tell the Body of Christ that we will be raptured in Rev. Chapter 4 ---
and that we will not be here for Rev. Chapters 8 and 9 ( World War 3, the Magog War )
 is
not warning the Church of the war that is to come  ... a war that all of us will witness here on earth ( having not been raptured yet until Rev. Chapter 11:15 ).

To lull the Church to sleep is irresponsible
Ezekiel 33: 2--6 . Please see Isaiah 56:10.
( There is nothing in Rev. Chapter 4 that substantiates the Rapture of the Bride of Christ ; nothing )

It is something that all watchmen, shepherds, ministers, pastors, preachers, teachers of the Word and laymen ought to seriously consider.

Here is an article that calls attention to this fact. It is called:
"Trumpets, Trumpets, Trumpets"
hopetotheend.com/ttt.html

Chapter 4 of Revelation has verses of praise to our Creator God ( Genesis 1:1 ) and Father in verses Rev. 4: 8, 9 and 11.

The Elders cast their crowns before the Father realizing that all one has in one’s lifetime comes from God alone.. We have no abilities of ourselves.
1 Corinthians 1: 29 “That no flesh should glory in His Presence”.


5. Chapter Five: Jesus, the Only One Who is Worthy to Redeem Planet Earth, because He already redeemed us at Calvary.
His death verified forever that truly He is the ONLY way to the Father, and
the ONLY One who can save planet earth

AUDIO
http://www.enduringword.com/library_commentaries.html
Text Rev. 5
www.blueletterbible.org/kjv/Rev/Rev005.html

The "Book with the seven seals" is the deed to planet earth. Adam and Eve surrendered that deed to Satan in the Garden of Eden and since then mankind has needed personal redemption. Jesus overcame Satan by never sinning once. Since Our Lord shed His atoning Blood upon the Cross for the remission of our sins and subjected Himself to death -- though He was sinless --- He therefore purchased Salvation for anyone who repents of his sins and thus they become covered under the protecting Blood of Jesus Christ. So Jesus alone---out of all persons born---has the right to take back, or
REDEEM, the control that Satan usurps.

There are many verses of praise to Jesus our Redeemer in this Chapter and are found at http://hopetotheend.com/blessings.html .

We are not our own. We have been bought with a price. We were not bought with money (silver or gold),
but we were bought with the precious blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.    1 Peter 1: 18, 19.

____________________________________________________________________________________

The wrath of the Lamb Jesus   Rev. 6—10;       and the wrath of God Almighty     Rev. 16

Only Jesus has the deed to planet earth and can therefore decree the seal judgments ( the wrath of the Lamb.) These are partial judgments.

The Father God Almighty decrees the 7 Vial ( or bowl ) judgments Rev. 16 upon a Christ-rejecting world. It was His one and only Beloved Son whom they murdered,
and justice will be performed upon the unrepentant. These are total judgments. If Jesus did not come back to save planet earth, then no flesh would be saved.
Matthew 24:22.

"day of His wrath".... meaning "
The Day of the wrath of the LAMB "; (Jesus Christ)
Jesus is slow to anger and full of mercy. But when the evil of Jesus-hating rejecters fills the cup to the brim, then Jesus must bring their own retribution upon their heads. Please see Jeremiah 25.
Jesus does not cause our judgments, nor does a loving God ever send a person to hell. We ourselves determine our own judgments ( unless we repent… 1 John 1: 8, 9 ) and only we ourselves determine our eternal destiny… either an eternity in heaven or an eternity in hell. The choice is ours. http://hopetotheend.com/wager.html


This coming day will be when Our Lord Jesus executes judgement "upon all that know not God (unbelievers), and that obey not the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ
(unrepentant, carnal believers). "
2 Thessalonians 1:8

There are two Divine "wrath" judgements contained in the Book of Revelation----
1. The wrath of the LAMB (Jesus).. Rev. 6:16 ;     John 15:22 .. Acts 10:42 and 17:31 .. John 5:22 .. 2 Timothy 4:1.
2. The wrath of God the Father... Rev.14:10,19     Rev.15:1,7    Rev.16:1,19     Rev. 19:15.

The wrath of the Lamb is contained in the First half of the Book of Revelation. Please see  
Amos 5:18; Zephaniah
and the Wrath of God the Father is contained in the Last half of the Book of Revelation. ( Rev. 16---19).
