WHAT TIME IT IS

REVELATION 1 Pg 3

 

1:12 And

[1] I turned

[a.] to see the voice that spake with me. And

[2] being turned, I saw

[a.] seven golden candlesticks [lampstands];

1:13 And

[3] in the midst of the seven candlesticks

[a.] [I saw one] like unto the Son of man [Dan. 10:4-6],

[11.] clothed with a garment

            [aa.] down to the foot, and

[12.] girt about the paps

                                                [aa.] with a golden girdle.

1:14 [13.] His head and [his] hairs [were]

                                                [aa.] white like wool,

            [111.] as white as snow; and

[14.] his eyes [were]

                                                [aa.] as a flame of fire [Dan. 10:6];

1:15 And [15.] his feet

                                                [aa.] like unto fine brass [Dan. 10:6],

            [111..] as if they burned in a furnace; and

[16.] his voice

                                                [aa.] as the sound of many waters [Rev. 19:6].

1:16 And [17.] he had in his right hand

                                                [aa.[ seven stars: and

[18.] out of his mouth

            [aa.] went a sharp two-edged sword [the word of God]: and

[19.] his countenance [was]

                                                [aa.] as the sun shineth in his strength [Matt. 17:2].

 

1:17 And when I saw him,

[1] I fell at his feet as dead [John was slain in the spirit]. And

[2] he laid his right hand upon me,

[a.] saying unto me,

[11.] Fear not;

[12.] I am

[aa.] the first and

[bb.] the last:

1:18 [cc.] I [am] he that liveth,

[111.] and was dead; and,

[13.] behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and

[14.] [I] have

[aa.] the keys of hell [the authority over hell and death] and

[bb.] [the keys] of death.

 

The key to understanding the book of Revelation

 

1:19 Write

[1] the things  

                        [a.] which thou hast seen [a vision of the glorified Jesus: Chapter 1], and

[2] the things 

                        [b.] which are [historical facts in John's day: Chapters 2 and 3], and

[3] the things  

                        [c.] which shall be hereafter [the prophecy of this Book: Chapters 4 through 22];

 

The mystery revealed  

1:20 The mystery of

[1] the seven stars

[a.] which thou sawest 

                                    [11] in my right hand, and

[2] the seven golden candlesticks [lampstands].

The seven stars are

            [11.] the angels [messengers or pastors (Rev. 1:1)] 

                        [aa.] of the seven churches: and 

            [12.] the seven candlesticks [lampstands] 

                        [aa.] which thou sawest are

                                    [111.] the seven churches
