A reason to trust what is written. All translations agree on numbers and colors. Not so much with other words. The writers were inspired. The translators not so much. Too many different versions. Too many different interpretations. Who or what can you trust? Numbers and colors are faithful and true. Use them to connect history with prophecy.
A testimony of Jesus Christ. Blessed is he that readeth. Augustine read it. “Why then read it if only to keep silence about it?” Understanding it is a challenge. You may not have time for this. You may not have that much time. It’s later than you think. You may need help understanding it. Ask for it.
A Revelation of Jesus Christ
A blessing for reading and hearing this prophecy. It must shortly come to pass. The first coming. Not the second. John the Baptist was preparing the way. John the Apostle knew this when he wrote to the seven churches. John Chrysostom, your brother, knew that when he was in Ephesus and Jerome was finishing the Vulgate.
A Measure Of The Temple
A witness and a testimony. It is the job of the laity to measure the Church and state. And to do something about it. Praying is not enough. Voting is not enough. Testify. Speak the truth. Defend the teachings of the Church. Defend life, marriage, and the family. It’s your job.
A Witness For The Truth
A lit candle in the darkness. Start by showing up where and when it is necessary. A witness is one who can testify. Speak the truth always especially when the enemy is trying to cancel it. The teachings of the Church are not being changed. They are just being ignored. Defend the Church. His Church. His teachings.
A bare record. A revelation for those who have an ear. Listen for the time is near for the second coming. Two thousand years ago the time was near for the first coming. John the Baptist was preparing the way for the Lamb of God. The word “lamb” can be found 27 times in the Apocalypse. Think about that. It is about the Lamb.
A Book of Revelation
A bare record. A revelation to shew unto his servants. That’s plural. There is more than one John. John the Baptist who bare record. John the Apostle to the seven churches. John Chrysostom who also am your brother. It’s complicated but I can explain if you are really interested.
A necessary revelation. This bishop would not stay silent. The laity must now wonder what is going on deep inside the Church. The other bishops will continue in their silence. Asking questions and seeking answers is now a job for the laity. Homosexuality and money has corrupted the leaders inside the Church. Call it clericalism.
A Testimony of Jesus Christ
A “bare record”. It was John the Baptist “who bare record”. It was John the Apostle who wrote “to the seven churches”. It was John Chrysostom, “who also am your brother”, who was in Ephesus when Jerome was finishing his Vulgate and needed a reliable copy of the Apocalypse. Three Johns.
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.
