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.

    The Revelation of Jesus Christ...amen.

    Rev 2 : 17 seems to refer to what is now called the phillosophers stone. The manna or bread is made from the stone.

    Daniel; You are so right with that! Adding to the fact, that the "times ARE at hand" and already in the action! The big problem I see with looking for some obscure future event, as if it were something outside or disconnected from the world right now is just as you say; many will be unprepared and therefore scandalized when the trap is suddenly sprung; while they should have already recognized it!
  • Daniel J. Smith
    The pre-tribulation is false doctrine, conceived by Satan and propagated by men in the late 1800's, primarily John Darby. The danger with the doctrine is twofold. First, it will cause many believers to question their faith, if not lose it completely, when they remain after the Tribulation begins. Secondly, the concept will result in many not being Spiritually prepared to face the difficult times.

    Revelation is my favorite book in the bible, it holds the end and a new beginning! It is full of wonders. I read this book once and now am trying to re-read it, I'll never get tired of it. :

    Cheryl; You are talking about the part where the Lord sends His angels to remove out of His kingdom all the wicked and the bad, and all causes of sin: but that isn't the "Rapture of the Saints" but something that happens simultaneously with the Coming of the LORD and the "Catching Away of the Saints." He empties the earth of the evil to bring us all with Him to begin the Kingdom of God for ever.
