A Constellation Of Stars
A date for the Apocalypse according to Morozov is 395. The writer is John Chrysostom. We can place him in Ephesus at the beginning of the fifth century replacing seven corrupt bishops. This is just before Jerome finishes his Vulgate which included the Apocalypse. Many believed it didn’t belong. Jerome had the authority to include it.
A chance to be blessed. Seven chances to be blessed in the Apocalypse. This book can change your life. These are difficult times. Understanding this book is difficult. It has been hijacked by many to promote their agenda. Don’t give up. Blessed are those who overcometh, readeth, watcheth, and keepeth. There is hope.
A Third John
A confirmation that the apostle wrote the Apocalypse was necessary to get it in the Bible which was being translated and defined by Jerome. Just before the Vulgate was completed John Chrysostom was in Ephesus replacing seven corrupt bishops. Jerome needed a reliable version of the Apocalypse.
A Silence In Heaven
A sound of trumpets. The third part did not do so well. Woe to the world. What can you do beside watch? Repent. Just show up. You may not know what to do or say but just showing up is a good start. Get informed. Be a part of something.
A White Robe
A rest for a little season while more are killed for the word of God. They were killed for their testimony. History records the numbers killed due to beliefs. Nothing new here except our ability to ignore the red horse, the black horse, and the pale horse.
A life and time of Chrysostom by Chrysostomus Baur was translated by Sr. M. Gonzaga so the English might learn that he spent the first three months of 401 in Ephesus replacing seven corrupt bishops. Jerome was in Bethlehem completing the Vulgate which included the Apocalypse that was written on Patmos not far from Ephesus.
A Patriarch In Exile
A great saint run out of town. Chrysostom appealed to the pope. This would lead to the Great Schism. While John was in Ephesus replacing seven corrupt bishops, those in power at Constantinople were conspiring against him. They had to get rid of him. They were the other bishops.
A Connection With Numbers
A prophecy fit with history. Early in the fifth century five of the seven dynasties of the Roman Empire had fallen. The beast that was was not. And yet to come are the ten dynasties of Islam that attacked and destroyed Constantinople, Babylon the Great, seven heads, and ten horns.
A Beginning Of The Fifth Century
A connection of dots: in chapter seven of Book Twenty in “City of God” by Augustine is his first commentary on the Apocalypse of John which came after Jerome put it in his Vulgate and that came after Chrysostom replaced seven corrupt bishops in Ephesus not far from Patmos.
