 The Revelation of Jesus Christ

The Apostle John, being held captive in the Isle of Patmos, sends his greeting to the 7 churches of Asia:

Grace be unto you, and peace from Him, Which is, Which was, Which is to come, and from the seven spirits, which are before His throne. And from Jesus Christ, Who is the Faithful Witness, Being the First Begotten from the dead.
Behold, He (Christ Jesus) comes with clouds, and every eye shall see Him, and also those which pierced Him. I AM the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, Declares the Lord, Which is, Which was, and Which is to come. The Almighty.

The Almighty Father God and Jesus Christ are One Spirit.

Then John writes: "I was in the Spirit on the Lord's Day"; 

The vernacular, the Lord's Day is is thought to be God's Sabbath day of rest because the Creator of the universe rested on the seventh day, which is normally the 7th day of the week. However, of great significance, there are special Sabbath's of the Lord.  With a little spiritual logic, we will understand that John is in the Spirit on a special Sabbath Day that belongs to the Lord forever. This specific Day of Rest would appear to be the High Holy Day of Rosa Shana. Witness the proof of the Word of God: Speak unto the children of Israel, saying: In the seventh month (Tishrei), in the first day of the month,  you shall have a Sabbath, a Memorial of blowing of trumpets, a Holy Convocation. (Leviticus 23:24.) Besides the normal weekly Sabbath days that occurs on the 7th day of the week, then note that the Seventh Month of Tishrei, has 4 additional Sabbaths which are High Holy days, and are set-aside by the Lord to be His Special days, and are to be perpetually celebrated.  (Leviticus 23:38-39.)

Sabbath Feasts of Tishrei

Also on the 10th day of the Seventh Month shall be a Holy Convocation unto you and you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord. (Leviticus 23:27.)

Speak unto the children of Israel saying: The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days unto the Lord. On the first day shall be a Sacred Assembly: You shall do no servile work on that day. Seven days you shall offer an offering made of fire unto the Lord: On the eighty day shall be a Holy Convocation unto you. (Leviticus 23:34-36.)

Feast of Unleavened Bread

On the fifteenth day of that month the Lordís Festival of Unleavened Bread begins; for seven days you must eat bread made without yeast. 7 On the first day hold a Sacred Assembly and do no regular work. 8 For seven days present a food offering to the Lord. And on the seventh day hold a Sacred Assembly and do no regular work. (Leviticus 23:7-8.)

Pentecost/Shavuot

On that same day you are to proclaim a Sacred Assembly and do no regular work. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live. (Leviticus 23:21.)

John continues the Revelation of Jesus Christ "and I heard behind me, a Great Voice, like a Trumpet, Saying:

 I AM Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last: And what you see, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia: Unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea."

John turns to see the Voice that sounds like a Trumpet speaking to him.  John first sees seven golden candle sticks, and in the midst of then, he sees the glorious appearance of One like the Son of Man. And He had in His Right Hand seven stars: and out of His Mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: And His Countenance was as the sun shining in its strength(Revelation 1:16.) The risen Son of Man, Jesus Christ having been given All Power in heaven and earth, speaks with All the Authority of His Father Yahweh God. The seven stars are the angels of the the seven churches, and the seven golden candle sticks are the seven churches. (See Revelation 1:17-20.) All are in the Right Hand of Christ Jesus signifying the Power of the Christ of Yahweh God.

 

I, Jesus, have sent 'Mine angel' to testify unto you these things in the churches.
(Revelation 22:16.)

The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My Right Hand, and the seven golden candle sticks.  The seven stars are the 'angels' of the seven churches, for the seven stars are the 'angels' of the seven candle sticks which you saw, and are the seven churches. (See Revelation 1:19-20.)

Presently, gross confusion reigns in the interpretation of the Revelation IN Jesus Christ, the First and the Last.  Recently, it has been presented that the angels of the seven churches/ecclesia are earthly pastors rather than heavenly spirits of Christ. Pastors are not the seven heavenly 'stars' held in the Hand of the Lord Jesus Christ. The error is set in motion by the esteemed pastors of the internet whose recent interpretations enhances the position of the many prideful pastors of the pulpit. The pastors are not God's flaming spirits of fire for they are of the earth.  These esteemed pastors would do well to read with Eyes the Eternal Spirit of Yahweh God, and begin to understand the Alpha and Omega of the Eternal Word of Yahweh God. In the Book of Revelation, that which is of time will be presented to the reader, through the all knowing Eyes of Yahweh God. From timeless Eternity, Holy Yahweh God created with His Eternal Word of Ctetion that which was to be from the beginning and the ending of all things, for Yahweh God would Glorify His Holy WORD of SALVATION, even above His Holy Name.

In the Book of Hebrews we witness the testimony of the TRUTH in chapter 1:

Being so much better than the angels, for the WORD of  Yahweh God, obtained by inheritance a Name more excellent than the angels. So then to which of  Yahweh God's Angels  did Yahweh God say at any time? Thou Art My Son.  This day have I begotten you.  I will be to Him, His Father, and He shall be to Me My Son.  Then again, when  Yahweh God shall bring His First begotten into the world,  Yahweh God said: Let all the angels of  Yahweh God worship My Son.  For  Yahweh God has made His angels, spirits and ministers of flames of fire. (See Hebrews 1:4-14.)

In the first chapter of Hebrews, the Almighty Yahweh God is speaking of His angelic spirits as being flaming ministers or servants of fire. They for the cleansing of the heirs of Salvation. Yahweh God declares of His Son, Saying: Thy Throne O God, is for ever and ever.  A Scepter of Righteousness is a Scepter of Thy Kingdom. (See again Hebrews 1:8-11.)

To the people of the pews, the church remains a building for them to meet in.   Unfortunately the building is where the pulpit pastor's of the splintered churches are  elevated so much in their positions, they become like idols, and are revered as the only messengers that have the ear of Yahweh God Almighty.  Yahweh God's always speaks His Revelation of TRUTH through His Holy Spirit IN Christ Jesus.   For Christ Alone, holds in His Right Hand the only key to Salvation, with the Sanctification of His called people through Yahweh God's ONE Spirit of cleansing fire IN the Blood of His Son. (See Revelation 1:18.)

The Lord Jesus Christ, the WORD of Yahweh God and Creator of all things that exists within His creation of the fabric of time, says to Nicodemus, a rabbi considered to be a master teacher of Israel: If I tell you of earthly things and you do not believe, then how shall you believe if I tell you of heavenly things.

The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, was mankind's history already written in the fabric of time.  Man-kind's history in time is revealed through the Inspiration of Yahweh God's Spirit that was given to John, who, on that High Holy Day, was IN the Spirit of the Almighty Yahweh God, and had ears to hear what the Spirit of Yahweh God would reveal. Therefore, through the all knowing Spirit of Holy Yahweh God Almighty, the Man of TRUTH. Jesus Christ, is revealed to the Ecclesia of God, for we are to hear what is Said IN the Heavenly Body of Christ Jesus.  But today, the flesh of the sinful man of the church, is blissfully ignorant of the WAY of Christ, for their ears have been made to be hard of hearing by the deceptive spirits of mankind, conceived by the Satanic enemy of Yahweh God.  If one is led by the flesh then confusion reigns, and the things of Yahweh God's Spirit of TRUTH, are dismissed as mystical fables. (See 2nd Timothy 4:4.)
