Discussion for Revelation 1

  • A disciple
    Hi Harold; Good question: let's look it up! In every case but one (Luke 20:36), there is only one word, 'angelos;' to bring tidings; a messenger; (esp. 'Angels'); by implication a Pastor: Angel, Messenger; (Strong's). Luke 20:36 "Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the ANGELS.." 'isangelos' Like an Angel, i.e. Angelic; "Equal unto the Angels." Read also Hebrews 1:14.
  • Harold
    My Pastor says the word 'angels' in verse 20 refers to the pastors of the seven churches. I am not sure of that., is that correct?
  • Kurt
    Like the Apostle in Revelation falling to his face cannot absorb God and Jesus' countenance we too can taste of his power. His Word lives, penetrating mortal souls, to continue our purification unto death. Death's sting in Hell no longer resides. Celebrate our future resurrection to Heaven where angels sing a cascade of music continually, that no person has heard. Our time is short to tell others.

    Wyestion: What are the seven spirits of God?

    Yvonne --I agree the Book of revelations clearly tells of the events that are unfolding as we speak all who has excepted Christ jesus as their personal savior will rise up --they speak of the other people left that he will give a second chance these are jews the chosen ones plus --those who never heard the message ----

    Verse 9: John was older at this time, but he did not let his age stop him from being active in his service to God. His zeal is one that we should imitate.
