Discussion for Revelation 14

  • A disciple
    Paul and Word; interpreting prophecies and understanding mysteries in Scripture is given by the Spirit of Truth; and never through human methodologies or invention. Scripture is not written in secret code, and religion is not superstition. There are many prayers in Psalm 119, specifically on how to ask for understanding. All may come and receive this from Him who have a good AND AN HONEST HEART.
  • Paul
    The three angels message is Justification by faith, invariably.

    Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
    {Revelation 14:12}

    Typeology for the 3 angels message is found in Daniel, chapters 1-6.

    Grace and peace be with you.
  • Word
    Satan comes at the 6h trump, the 6th vial and the 6th seal. The 7th trump will be the Warrior with hail stones and fire. You won't be expecting Him because the world will be so happy in their peace, false peace because there is no true peace without the Prince of Peace but up to the time of the war of the 7th trump, at the gathering place where Satan and his bunch have gathered that's the end.
  • A disciple
    Walter; actually it very much IS literal! While the ungodly are going deeper and deeper into darkness and deceit, and they are breaking all the bonds and casting away all the cords; God has already judged them, and so removes His restraint from before them. We seek to walk in Truth and a good conscience following our dear Saviour Jesus: for this we are persecuted and MUST BE PATIENT while we wait!
  • Walter Hutchins
    The patient of the saint is a hidden mystery from u all if God wanted u to know the mystery he would let u know so maybe you should look inside yourself and strengthen your walk . I will too it isn't literal all is spiritual... Hint
  • BSP
    Verse 6 shows that angels have an interest and are involved in the preaching of the good news.
