A leopard. A connection with the beasts of Daniel. John knows Daniel knows beasts. Also in common are the ten horns. John’s beast was like a leopard, a bear, and a lion. Daniel is the key to understanding the beasts of the Apocalypse. What do the beasts of Daniel have in common? The Temple. Don’t mess with the Temple.
A Relevant Revelation
A prophecy fulfilled. A reason to believe. Be not afraid. In spite of a suffering world, you only have to worry about the second death. You will be alright if you get your part right. Your burden is light. You will get help in knowing what your part is. Just ask for it.
A book of what is to come. Only history can verify what has been prophesied. History based on numbers. Not on interpretation. You can only trust numbers. Numbers do not have to be interpreted. Start with the big numbers like a thousand and it might lead you to the Byzantine Empire that fits with all the other numbers.
A thousand year “Reign of Christ”. They “reigned with Christ” is what is in the bible. That is a big difference. Look for a thousand years where they reigned with Christ. A Christian empire that lasted a thousand years. Like the Byzantine Empire. It’s the only one. Check it out. It fits with the other numbers.
A Church And State
A candlestick and olive tree. A search for two olive trees leads to a prophet Zechariah, a high priest Joshua, a governor Zerubbabel, and the Second Temple. This should lead you to the Byzantine Empire and the Holy Roman Empire where Church and State worked together. Two witnesses.
A “Reign Of Christ”
A problem with the bible. The “Reign of Christ” cannot be found in the bible. It will get over six millions hits if you google it. Just another example of how the bible is misinterpreted. Who can you trust? What can you trust? Numbers. Interpretation is unavoidable but you should at least have the numbers to back it up.
A Testimony Of Jesus Christ
A first coming. The Lamb of God. We are preparing for the second coming. Two thousand years ago John the Baptist was preparing for the first coming. The word lamb is used 27 times in the Apocalypse. John the Apostle knew the seven churches, Jesus, and John the Baptist.
A version of each translation. Before the printer, no two bibles were alike. Now no two translations are alike. And there are way too many. About 60 English translations. Each translation has more than one version. So the “Word of God” is subject to translations, revisions, and interpretation. For the most part they agree on numbers.
A Door To Be Opened
A need to repent. Listen if you have an ear. He knows our works. The last church of the Apocalypse looks a lot like the Church today. Our comfort is our enemy. Instead of protecting life, we protect our way of life. The teachings of the Church are not being changed, they are just being ignored.
A beast that was, and is not. The beast that was had seven heads and the beast that is to come has ten horns. History will verify the fulfillment of prophecy. Only history can. Just look for it but don’t use your interpretation. Use numbers. They are not misleading. Nearly all the bible translations agree on the numbers. Not much else.
