Wesley's Notes for Revelation 6:13


6:13 And the stars fell to, or towards, the earth - Yea, and so they surely will, let astronomers fix their magnitude as they please. As a fig tree casteth its untimely figs, when it is shaken by a mighty wind - How sublimely is the violence of that shaking expressed by this comparison!

    The book of Revelations is an allegory: the 7 churches are the 7 energy centres and major glands of the body. The 33 years that Jesus Christ lived for correspondent to the 33 vertebrae that we each have in our spine. The 24 elders are the nerve ends that go from the thalamus in our brains to the stomach. Check out the videos on Kelly-Marie Kerr's YouTube channel for a deeper explanation.

    seal 1 2 3 4 are already in full production; these seals = 1 and this 1 = many that (because it is the last days) are allowed to control by wars and food control /economic, also diseases (don't know where I catch this cold lol). Using their power (controlling modern-day conveniences where applicable ) they (though under GOD's control) are conquering house by house, nation by nation.

    yes satan does mock. Just like he uses idol "santa". You have heard the song about this gross idol.."he sees you when your sleeping, he knows when your awake...he knows if you've been bad or good, so be good for heavens sake". A counterfeit to an all knowing
  • Romans 14 KJV
    Why do you think the crown wearing rider of this white horse has a bow but no arrows?? How then will he go about conquering to conquer?? He will do it with "PEACE". What did Jesus say what will happen when they proclaim peace??. The rider here is indeed the "antiChrist". Remember Satan mocks flips everything God proclaims.. Always rightly divide and match scripture with scripture..
