THE BOOK OF REVELATION
  • Apocalypse (Greek apokálypsis "lifting of the
    veil" or "revelation" is a disclosure of
    something hidden from the majority of mankind in
    an era dominated by falsehood and misconception,
    i.e. the veil to be lifted.
  • Revelation 1 a panoramic view of 2000 years of
    Church History The Millennium (1000 years) and
    the Kingdom
  • Chapters 1-3 deals with the Church/Bride
  • Chapter 4-19 deals with Israel as a nation
    Reveals the Sealed/Opened Book. Show activities
    in Heaven
  • Chapter 19-22 is both together
  • Hebrews 1139-40

3
The Fivefold Division of the Bible
  • The old testament has for its subject the King
    and His coming Kingdom, In promise and prophecy
  • The four Gospels the kingdom offered and
    rejected. The King crucified.
  • The Acts and earlier Pauline epistles the King
    and Kingdom reoffered and rejected by the
    Dispersion in Rome
  • The Latter Pauline Epistles the King made head
    over all things to the Church
  • The Apocalypse the Kingdom set up with Divine
    judgment, in power/glory. The King enthroned

4
  • Yet we do speak wisdom among those who are
    mature a wisdom, however, not of this age nor of
    the rulers of this age, who are passing away 7
    but we speak Gods wisdom in a mystery, the
    hidden wisdom which God predestined before the
    ages to our glory 8 the wisdom which none of the
    rulers of this age has understood for if they
    had understood it they would not have crucified
    the Lord of glory 9 but just as it is written,
  •    THINGS WHICH EYE HAS NOT SEEN AND EAR HAS NOT
    HEARD, AND which HAVE NOT ENTERED THE HEART OF
    MAN, ALL THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO
    LOVE HIM.
  •  For to us God revealed them through the Spirit
    for the Spirit searches all things, even the
    depths of God. 11 For who among men knows the
    thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man
    which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no
    one knows except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we
    have received, not the spirit of the world, but
    the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know
    the things freely given to us by God, 13 which
    things we also speak, not in words taught by
    human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit,
    ecombining spiritual thoughts with spiritual
    words.

The Seven Spirits of God
  • Isaiah 112-- Spirit of the Lord Spirits of
    wisdom and revelation Spirits of counsel and
    might Spirits of knowledge and reverential awe.
  • The Eyes of the Lord--- Zechariah 39 Zachariah
    410. For who has despised the day of small
    things? But these seven will be glad when they
    see the dplumb line in the hand of
    Zerubbabelthese are the eyes of the LORD which
    range to and fro throughout the earth.
  • Revelations 56---And I saw between the throne
    (with the four living creatures) and the elders a
    Lamb standing, as if slain, having seven horns
    and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of
    God, sent out into all the earth. 7 And He came
    and took the book out of the right hand of Him
    who sat on the throne.

Hebrews 11-3 teaches us "God, who at sundry
times and in divers manners spake in time past
unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these
last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath
appointed heir of all things, by whom also he
made the worlds who being the brightness of his
glory, and the express image of his person, and
upholding all things by the word of his power,
when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down
on the right hand of the Majesty on high .
His body also was like beryl, his face had the
appearance of lightning, his eyes were like
flaming torches, his arms and feet like the gleam
of polished bronze, and the sound of his words
like the sound of a tumult. Daniel 106
16
His Hair As White Snow 
  • The symbolic depiction of this image involving
    the Lord's hair communicates the supreme wisdom
    by which He judges the affairs of mankind. The
    people of Israel vividly remembered the Glory
    once resident in their nation through the
    leadership of Solomon. The Heavenly impartation
    of wisdom given to this king became legendary.
    Nonetheless, a greater than Solomon has now come.
    The One who is the very source of all wisdom
    will judge from the books of heaven involving the
    issues of mankind and the restoration of lost
    heritage.
  •  
  • Both John and Daniel saw the purity of God's
    wisdom in His justice portrayed through hair as
    white as snow. He revealed Himself as the
    suffering lamb, now we will see demonstrations of
    the overcoming King who comes to wage war with
    His enemies and render justice. Revelations
    1911
  • Acts 1730-31Therefore having overlooked the
    times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men
    that all people everywhere should repent, because
    He has fixed a day in which He will judge the
    world in righteousness through a Man whom He has
    appointed, having furnished proof to all men by
    raising Him from the dead.

17
His Eyes as Flames of Fire 
  • The penetrating and fiery eyes of Jesus the Just
    Judge have seen all that has taken place in the
    realm of mankind. Nothing has escaped His notice
    nor have the motives and thoughts resident in the
    hearts of people. Our thoughts are louder in
    heaven than our words on the earth.
  •  
  • The eyes of God have roved to and fro throughout
    the earth to record every act of righteousness
    and document every injustice committed against
    the heritage of Christ. Not one will go without
    restitution and restoration. The Sevenfold
    Spirit of God are the all-seeing eyes of God.
    For who has despised the day of small things? But
    these seven will be glad when they see the plumb
    line in the hand of Zerubbabel these are the
    eyes of the LORD which range to and fro
    throughout the earth. Zechariah 410

18
Feet of Burnished Bronze
  • His feet of burnished bronze represents His right
    to stand in judgment. Bronze is a very hard
    substance that has been tried by fire. The
    sinless, spotless son of God endured the
    harshness and recompense of iniquity and
    transgression on behalf of lost mankind. The
    fiery furnace of God's wrath against sin was
    heaped upon the Lord Jesus. He took it to the
    cross and won the right to release justice in the
    earth.
  • His feet will stand upon the land and sea to
    surrender justice in the realm of man. The
    prophet Moses prophetically saw the Lord coming
    in His glory revealing the attributes of both
    mercy and justice. As the Lord passed before
    Moses He declared His eternal qualities of
    compassion and grace. He is slow to anger and
    abounding in lovingkindness and truth. He
    extends mercy and forgiveness to thousands,
    pardoning iniquity, transgression and sin but he
    will by no means leave the guilt of sin
    unpunished.
  • If sin and transgression has been released to the
    Lord Jesus through His blood then there remains
    no judgment for sin. Justice then relinquishes
    blessings, favor and grace to the righteous.

19
Voice as the Sound of Many Waters 
  • Waters very often symbolically points to the
    multitudes of peoples and nations. Likewise, His
    Voice is the voice of ultimate authority and
    power. Throughout the ages a prophetic message
    has been delegated and entrusted to each
    generation through the messengers of Heaven.
    There has been an allotted portion of Heavenly
    Manna deposited throughout each juncture of
    church history.
  • The prophet Daniel in his prayer of repentance
    acknowledged that the people of his day did not
    obey the Voice of the Lord presented to them
    through the His servants the prophets. He
    acknowledged,
  • nor have we obeyed the voice of the LORD our God,
    to walk in His teachings which He set before us
    through His servants the prophets Daniel 910
  • When the day of justice arrives, every voice that
    has declared the revelation of God to their
    generation will be sounded as one. That voice
    will be the voice of the Holy Spirit rendering
    justice.

20
In His Right Hand Seven Stars
  • The Holy Spirit has utilized the agency of man to
    articulate His Voice. The seven stars are the
    ambassadors of Heaven who carried and imparted
    the revelation of Jesus to their generation. The
    Scriptures plainly emphasize the meaning of the
    seven stars as messengers.
  •  
  • Clearly, the apostle Paul was a messenger and
    voice to the early church who worked in
    cooperation with the Holy Spirit and the host of
    heaven. The message was oftentimes communicated
    to him and the apostle John through spiritual
    beings who embodied the revelation of God. That
    pattern continued throughout the Church ages and
    will be emphasized in this day. An accentuation
    of this reality has been plainly recorded in
    history. Martin Luther was a messenger to his
    day bringing the restoration of truth that the
    just shall live by faith. The progressive
    recovery of lost heritage continued through the
    messengers of the next generation including John
    Wesley, George Whitefield, John Knox and many
    others.
  •  
  • Finally, this generation will experience a
    company of messengers who not only impart a truth
    but embody the Truth. That is our promise and
    legacy.

21
Two-edged Sword 
  • The Living Word is quick and powerful and sharper
    than a two-edged sword. Only the Lord can
    separate spirit from soul. He is the one who
    discerns the thoughts and intentions of our
    hearts. The Lord Jesus has the unique ability to
    examine and weigh our motives to determine if we
    are capable of carrying the authority of Heaven
    to our generation.
  •  
  • It is His intent and desire to live in and among
    His people bringing the revelation of Himself and
    His Word. The book of Revelations depicts the
    Lord Jesus coming on a white horse with the
    declaration that He is faithful and true.
    Embroidered on His garment is the depiction of
    His person the Word of God. The Word became
    flesh and dwelt among mankind. He once again
    desires to do the same through His body.

22
Face Like the Sun
  • Resident in the Lord are manifold Holy
    attributes. Many people still envision the Lord
    as a baby in a manger. However, He is now an
    awesome, victorious, overcoming King great is
    His power and authority to be administered and
    experientially apprehended on the earth in a
    demonstration of His victory.
  • The Son of Righteousness will arise with healing
    in His wings to bring a fresh revelation of His
    Person to the earth. The residue of Glory
    resting on Moses after his face-to-face
    encounters with God overwhelmed the people of
    Israel. He was forced to cover his face because
    of the tangible impartation of Heavenly virtue
    that he transported. How much more in this
    generation when the Lord demonstrates His victory
    and imparts His Glory not only upon, but within
    His Bride. Christ in us the hope of Glory.
    This endowment will come to those who view him
    with an unveiled face.

From John L. Moore
  • On 7-7-11 I said, "The rock has rolled.
  • Last week a freak thunderstorm crossed the north
    side of our ranch before bringing much
    destruction to a farming community east of us on
    the Yellowstone River.The photo above is a
    partial look at a landmark on our ranch, a
    massive rock with vertical lines (caused by ocean
    tides when eastern Montana was on the bottom of
    an ocean?) and stretching over 100 feet and
    rising up to 15 feet above the ground. Little
    about this rock has changed through the years.

28
  • After the storm Wally Badgett and I trailed some
    yearlings past Krumm Spring and I could not
    believe my eyes. The angry storm had dislodged a
    horizontal portion of the rock wall and left it
    standing vertically without rolling it down the
    hill. This rock is standing on a narrow ledge
    with its lines now pointing up. While I was
    watching the live streaming of the Open Door
    Conference at Chuck Pierce's church Friday night
    the Lord gave me understanding about this rock.
  • The total rock represents the Church. For a long
    time all of the church's "lines" have been
    horizontal. The church has been concerned about
    fellowship, church growth, activities, social
    programs, etc...
  • But a storm broke off a "remnant" without
    destroying it. Instead, the remnant is now
    pointing up to the heavens. See how this rock
    even resembles a hand.
  • This is a sign for our times. A remnant within
    the church will break away from horizontal works
    and point upward to Christ.

Open Door Opportunity and Revelation
  • Revelation 1 ParadigmJohns Experience
  • He is the DoorJohn 107 So Jesus said to them
    again, "Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door
    of the sheep. "All who came before Me are
    thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear
    them. "I am the door if anyone enters through
    Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and
    find pasture.
  • His IdentityHe is both Lord and Christ.
  • Acts 236.

  • Moses sent Spy's to investigate Their Land the
    Lord was going to Give them.
  • The People Believed the Evil Report

Seven Church Ages
  • Ephesus...the apostolic church
  • Smyrna...the persecuted church
  • Pergamos...the married church 
  • Thyatira...the mideval church
  • Sardis...the denominational church
  • Philadelphia...missionary church/open door
  • Laodicea...the apostate/lukewarm church

34
The Spreading of the Kingdom Message
  • Corinthians 212, "Furthermore, when I came to
    Troas to preach Christ's Gospel, and a door was
    opened unto me of the Lord.".
  •  Hebrews 21 For this reason we must pay much
    closer attention to what we have heard, so that
    we do not drift away from it. For if the word
    spoken through angels proved unalterable, and
    every transgression and disobedience received a
    just penalty, how will we escape if we neglect so
    great a salvation? After it was at the first
    spoken through the Lord, it was confirmed to us
    by those who heard, God also testifying with
    them, both by signs and wonders and by various
    miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit
    according to His own will.

35
  • Psalm 1Prophetic call for return to the Land.
  • Psalms 39-49 World War II
  • Psalm 48Reveals Israel's Restoration.
  • Psalm 107 seemed to touch upon 2007, as the UN
    replaced the Lex Mercatoria (the ancient Law of
    the Seas) with a new UN treaty. Psalm 107 speaks
    of these sea merchants reeling over troubled
    seas. The UN took control of the worlds oceans,
    thus controlling national sovereignty, navigation
    rights, international taxation, the environment,
    and energy production. In the hands of a
    powerful, unelected few, the UN is threatening
    the long tradition of freedom on the high seas
    70 percent of the Earths surface. Also, in 2007,
    the UN began talks on global warming under the
    United Nations Framework Convention on Climate
    Change (UNFCCC) and developed the Kyoto
    Protocol. Furthermore, representatives of the
    United States and the European Union signed a new
    transatlantic economic partnership at a summit
    in Washington DC, agreeing to set up an economic
    council to move ahead with regulatory
    convergence in some 40 areas, including
    intellectual property, financial services,
    business takeovers and open skies the ability
    to fly to airports anywhere in Europe and America
    without the need for passports. Psalm 107 alludes
    to these subjects with a promise that the Messiah
    will soon come and judge the nations.

36
  • Psalm 108, which speaks of casting a shoe Over
    Edom will I cast out my shoe (Psalm 1089). We
    all remember seeing an Iraqi newsman throwing his
    shoes at President George Bush! This verse is
    also given in Psalm 608. Well, believe it or
    not, 1960 was the year Russian President Nikita
    Kruschev banged his shoe on his desk at the
    United Nations and declared, We will bury you.
  • Psalm 109This psalm speaks of a wicked and
    deceitful ruler, who turns his back on Israel.
    David prays for Gods judgment upon him Set
    thou a wicked man over him and let Satan stand
    at his right hand (Psalm 1096). In 2009
    T-shirts were produced with Psalm 109 written on
    them. Although they were condemned by Washington
    elites, the psalm, nevertheless, set a powerful
    theme for 2009 concerning our leader turning on
    Israel.
  • Psalm 110This is the most quoted psalm in the
    New Testament. It speaks of Gods Son sitting at
    His right hand until the time is right to return
    to Earth in Judgment. Perhaps the psalm is saying
    that 2010 is very close to the time for Christ to
    return, but not quite yet. Psalm 111
  • As we look at Psalm 111, let us first look at the
    Hebrew layout of this psalm. Notice that the
    letters in red represent the Hebrew alphabet.
    Therefore, this is an alphabetic psalm. The
    famous rabbis, Rashi (A.D. 1040-1105) and Radak
    (A.D. 1160-1235), have both suggested that the
    initial letters of the stitches of this psalm
    (after the first word Hallelujah) follow the
    sequence of the Hebrew alphabet (Tehillim, Vol.
    2, p. 1348).

    Your right hand and Your arm and the light of
    Your presence, For You favored them. Psalms 443
  • Who is among you that fears the Lord, That obeys
    the voice of His servant, That walks in darkness
    and has no light? Let him trust in the name of
    the Lord and rely on his God. Behold, all you who
    kindle a fire, Who encircle yourselves with
    firebrands, Walk in the light of your fire And
    among the brands you have set ablazeIsaiah
    5010-11.

43
The Lampstands
  • Lampstand-- Exodus 2531. This is a type of the
    Holy Spirit illuminating all the things of God.
    The pure gold represents the purity of the spirit
    and of His word. The seven branches represents
    fullness and completion of the Spirits
    Revelation. The bowls represent the great
    provision of the Spirit. The flowers represent
    the beauty of the spirit. In the book of
    Revelation it is indicative of God's people.
  • In the Holy Place there are three implements...
    Lampstand, Table of Shewbread, Altar of Incense.
  • Zechariah 4. The Oil and the fire both come from
    God.
  • And I will grant authority to my two witnesses,
    and they will prophesy for twelve hundred and
    sixty days, clothed in sackcloth." These are the
    two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand
    before the Lord of the earth. Rev 113-4

44
Deliverers Ascending Zion
  • But on Mount Zion there will be those who escape,
    And it will be holy. And the house of Jacob will
    possess their possessions. Then the house of
    Jacob will be a fire And the house of Joseph a
    flame But the house of Esau will be as stubble.
    And they will set them on fire and consume them,
    So that there will be no survivor of the house of
    Esau," For the Lord has spoken. The deliverers
    will ascend Mount Zion To judge the mountain of
