Message from the Book of Revelation

Message from the Book of Revelation (Short#1 of 4)

The Book of Revelation is a symbolic message. However, it is difficult to understand, especially when you are not well versed in truly learned people such as Bible teachers or elders. These learned people have the same experience as the scholars in the biblical world, and most of all, with the anointing of the Holy Spirit of God. A lack of knowledge of the word of God can easily deceive us. With the gift of the Holy Spirit of God, we can easily discern the one genuinely speaking the truth. The Mark on the forehead or between the eyes could have an interpretation of extremely evil thoughts continually, and the hand could mean the powerful work or command that controls people’s behavior.

We can say that the Mark on the forehead by the beast could mean the work of our mind, which is the starting point of human attitude. These are purely evil thoughts, and the Mark of the Beast on our hand is the act of evil work of human behavior that leads to a lack of good moral character and guidance of the Holy Spirit. Anyone who refuses the gifts of the Holy Spirit becomes the Son of disobedience. So, whoever knows what to do and fails to do it is a sin against Him (God). Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and every expression of evil, and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save your souls— James 1:21

May the good LORD bless and keep you with the protection and guidance of His Holy Spirit.

Short Message from the Book of Revelation (Short#2 of 4)

Many centuries ago, there were many interpretations of the Mark of the Beast, and they are all opinions written based on hearsay. Every generation has its own experience of hardship, such as famine, wars, survival of the fittest, the rule of the iron hand of the church, and Roman atrocities. From the Garden of Eden (Period of Innocence) to the formation of Civil Government (Laws), people were more susceptible to corruption, influenced by the desire for the convenience of the Flesh.

Tribulations and Rapture are popular events mentioned in the Book of Revelation, and believers have split feelings about them. Some church leaders put the fear of the coming end of life to their members, while others are more careful in encouraging their members that the end of life brings great happiness to those who have suffered enough in this journey. No matter what we think about the end time, it will end with joy to those who believe they have finished the race, acknowledging God’s existence in our lives. Life starts with God and ends with God.

Message from the Book of Revelation (Short#3 of 4)

There are two schools of thought about tribulation and the Rapture. First, a tribulation is an event of trouble. Tribulation is a hardship, pain, and suffering, drought or famine, epidemic, wildfire, tsunami, COVID pandemic, endemic, the rampant killing of the innocents, kidnapping, drugs, nations controlling other nations, and any disasters big and small that are unbearable to human lives can be considered tribulation. Those instabilities mentioned above that occur in human lives are tribulations of biblical events. Is it not evident that what we are experiencing now is like a shadow of the past tribulation in our time? What would be our response? Are we calling God the Almighty Father, or will we remain under the shadow of the cross of the Mighty Son?

Jesus, in John 19:30, said on the cross, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his Spirit.” The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God and Jesus as he sits at the right-hand side of the Father; what would you think Jesus is? Is he not a Spirit? God the Father is a Spirit according to Jesus; if we use our minds to form the puzzle together, we may come up with one accord that Jesus cannot be in a physical body with the Father. Jesus received his glorious Spiritual body after the cross when he ascended to the Father’s abode—now sitting on the Father’s right side.

Message from the Book of Revelation (Short#4 of 4)

The Father is very disappointed with the Flesh; it is taught in scripture that humankind grieves God’s heart. Genesis 6:6 states the fact. “And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart.” Imagine the unkindness Humans did to Him after giving us the life to enjoy His ways; humans, in return, did the desire of the Flesh their wicked way. Just think of the grief in the heart of God when humans repaid His goodness with sorrow and burden, and it is not easy for a loving Father to punish humanity by the deluge that wiped out almost all living beings.

Why do His image and likeness created with His hand find it hard to believe that all it takes is obedience to His will, which will guarantee the crown of righteousness that will lead to eternal life with Him?

We took some excerpts from various Scriptures to support the idea that God is not pleased with the Flesh. We can assume the glorious body is not with the nature of the Flesh.

Genesis 6:3 And the Lord said, My Spirit shall not always strive with man, for he is also Flesh. Galatians 5:19-21— The works of the Flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery…continue reading for me; those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. In 1 John 2:15-17, If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the Flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life… There is more to describe regarding Flesh.

Romans 8:13  For if you live according to the Flesh, you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.- Romans 8:7. Flesh is hostile to God. What more must we prove that Jesus is now in a glorious body? What is a glorious body? Is it like heaven, which remains a mystery?

May you not get confused about what you read. Continue the fight of faith and seek God’s face; one day, He might reveal it to you, which is not revealed to others.

To God is the glory. He is our all-in-all. God is jealous when we worship or idolize someone other than Him. We will discuss idolatry in the future.

Proverbs 25:2 God is all in all.
