1:15 And his feet like fine brass - Denoting his stability and strength. As if they burned in a furnace - As if having been melted and refined, they were still red hot. And his voice - To the comfort of his friends, and the terror of his enemies. As the voice of many waters - Roaring aloud, and bearing down all before them.

    Jesus shows the world true life; follow Him and you will continually have it. Jesus came from God the Father and if you believe in Him you will not die in the midst of your harmful ways. Since Jesus always lives by and speaks according to what he learned from the Father, the Father is with him. If you hold to Jesus' teachings (one is to believe in Him), you are really his disciple and will know

    At the end of the 7 years, all will see him, including those who pierced him.
    The Rapture will be just like any day. Not on a feast day or Holiday.
    This is why Jesus comes with thick clouds. We would be killed by his brightness. He comes in the Rapture as a thief.
    His second coming with his Saints he destroys the wicked by the brightness.

    The Revelation is a Jewish Book about the Jewish 7 churches going through the Tribulation, The Time of Jacob’s Trouble. Israel did not believe Jesus Christ was The Messiah when He came the 1st Time, but they WILL believe the 2nd Time He Comes! The 4 Horsemen are Angels, the locusts are fallen angels, and this sets the stage for Jesus Christ to defeat Satan and become The King of everything!

  • Minister Mel G
    In the four Gospels the Bible lets us know that Jesus was from the House of David the stem of Jesse the Seed of Abraham so therefore God manifest himself in that flesh. John 1 and 13 which were born not of blood nor of the wheel of Flesh nor of the will of man but of God verse 14 and the Word was made flesh we have to understand in the first chapter of Genesis God use word to speak things into existence.
  • Truth From the Book
    @Nichols. God didn't NEED an angel, but since it is a REVELATION, He used angels to reveal some of that to John. Rev. 22:16 says, "I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things." Jesus sent the angel (Rev. 1:1) and also appeared to John Himself (Rev. 1:10-20).
