-Multitude in heaven (Rev 19:1-6)
19And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: 2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand. 3 And again they said, Alleluia And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.
When the term great is used, it means the most high or something to be the most powerful. This would be the final voice, all in heaven (paradise) are in agreement speaking in unison. Everyone here being of the spiritual realm already and of the spiritual understanding are speaking the spiritual truth together.
All these have come together to honor and recognize His righteousness and judgment, as Babylon falls. Babylon corrupted the earth with her earthly level teaching and fornication. She killed the saints and destroyed those at the beginning of time, those being the church (children of God) that had the higher level or spiritual eye of the meaning of the Word. They purposely used the earthly level meaning to cover the heavenly level meanings and keep them from the people. This was done in essence through all earthly religions those that state they are Christian based and those that are different. These are all the spiritual fornication of Babylon herself, so to speak, they are in bed with anything other than Christ (God/Holy Spirit) whom they are supposed to be with, as we are to be the bride of Christ.
If you are understanding the Word only with your earthly vision, and not seeing it with your earthly eye (understanding) and spiritual eye (understanding), you will not have full understanding of what is meant to be known (the truth). Which in turn is why we need the Holy Spirit to help us to see and understand on a spiritual level what we are unable to do on our own without Her. We need the earthly together with the spiritual to understand the full heavenly meaning. Yet, like it states in Luke and the Gospel of Thomas, the keys have been hidden. So, the earthly understanding has been corrupted, but we can still see the truth with the keys that are here, just in books that people reject (the builders rejected the cornerstone).
4 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.
The backing behind the use of the Great Whore and fornication, is because the government and the institutions/religions are all in bed together so to speak. Which is also why Jesus says that friendship with the world is enmity with God, this is why He refers to that as adultery. Technically, it is a forbidden union to be together with the world, but that is what the churches of the world have done for the last two thousand years or more. The standardized Christian church of the world has taken on the earthly meaning of God’s word and completely looked over the spiritual aspect of it, and in turn they have lost sight of the truth. They have pushed Jesus as a man (flesh only) and they do not grasp the parallelisms, metaphors, or parables. Over time the truth has been indoctrinated and theologized into something it is not, yet it has become the standard of the worldly church. This happening, blinds people from seeing the truth as it really is, and which would be like trying to see the snow how it appears, through foggy mud stained windows.
The saints have been vindicated here and the great whore is gone now and will never return. The four beasts corresponds with the six thousand years which I believe we have discussed in earlier chapters.
Revelation 4 7 and the first living creature [is] like a lion, and the second living creature [is] like a calf, and the third living creature hath the face as a man, and the fourth living creature [is] like an eagle flying.
Enoch 40.1 And after this I saw a thousand thousands and ten thousand times ten thousand! A multitude beyond number, or reckoning, who stood in front of the Glory of the Lord of Spirits. 40.2 I looked, and on the four sides of the Lord of Spirits, I saw four figures, different from those who were standing; and I learnt their names, because the Angel who went with me made known their names, and showed me all the secret things. 40.3 And I heard the voices of those four figures as they sang praises in front of the Lord of Glory. 40.4 The first voice blesses the Lord of Spirits forever and ever. 40.5 And the second voice I heard blessing the Chosen One and the chosen who depend on the Lord of Spirits. 40.6 And the third voice I heard, petitioned, and prayed, on behalf of those who dwell on dry ground and supplicate in the name of the Lord of Spirits. 40.7 And the fourth voice I heard driving away the Satans and not allowing them to come in front of the Lord of Spirits to accuse those who dwell on the high ground. 40.8 And after this I asked the Angel of Peace, who went with me, and showed me everything which is secret: “Who are those four figures, whom I have seen, and whose words I have heard and written down?” 40.9 And he said to me: “This first one, is the Holy Michael, the merciful and long-suffering. And the second, who is in charge of all the diseases, and in charge of all the wounds of the sons of men, is Raphael. And the third, who is in charge of all the powers, is the Holy Gabriel. And the fourth, who is in charge of repentance and hope of those who will inherit eternal life, is Phanuel.” 40.10 And these are the four Angels of the Lord Most High; and the four voices that I heard in those days.
These four beasts/four living creatures could very well be the four that are described above in Enoch 40, Michael, Raphael, Gabriel, and Phanuel. In Revelation it appears that you should know about these four and it seems that it’s assumed, that is if you have read the Book of Enoch. Throughout the Bible you don’t really get a good explanation as to who these beasts are, but with it being assumed that you know them and the only really good explanation of them being in Enoch, here again we see that this Book should have never been removed from the “Biblical text.” The importance of much understanding throughout history and the Bible and other text, Enoch is key to them all. It carries with it so much needed information, which is likely why they removed it, how would they have deceived the people otherwise.
5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great. 6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigns.
The great multitude would be all those that have been saved, and they are the voice in agreement speaking as one. The waters are the people of the many nations, peoples, and tongues which, have all become one. They are in agreement that the Lord God who is omnipotent reigns. The seven thunders are sealed up until the time of the end, which are possibly uttering their voices on that day.
(3rd) The wedding supper announced (Rev 19:7-10)
7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. 9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
Remember Jesus and Christ have very different meanings, Jesus is the flesh or lower level, and Christ is the spiritual or heavenly level. Which in turn is the earthly level and the heavenly levels of meaning, which is how we get the full truth of things, part of it has to be given to us through the Holy Spirit. Just like, Peter giving him the title of Christ, because the Spirit/The Father in Heaven revealed that to him just as Christ stated in Matthew.
Matthew 16 15 He saith to them, `And ye — who do ye say me to be?’ 16 and Simon Peter answering said, `Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.’ 17 And Jesus answering said to him, `Happy art thou, Simon Bar-Jona, because flesh and blood did not reveal [it] to thee, but my Father who is in the heavens.
What Jesus did as a man had a spiritual dimension and a physical dimension to each act, He is spirit and He is prophecy in all that He does. For instance, when He healed the blind man’s eyes, on the level of the physical it has to do with his physical sight, but on the level of the spiritual it has to do with the opening of his spiritual eyes so he could see the truth of God. If you only look at this in one aspect which is what the standardized church today does, they look and read things from only the physical (not to mention the missing books and mistranslation), you miss half of the whole meaning of things and in essence with certain things, miss the whole meaning. Peter being spoken to by “The Father who is in heaven,” is the Holy Spirit or the angels relying the truth of God to us, when we are willing to listen, that still small voice is God at work. This world has become so filled with noise that many people never hear that voice and wonder why. I’ve had a guy ask me that before, he said he didn’t know if he believed that, his wife said she heard it but he never had. Question is have you been in silence to hear it, or are you constantly surround by noise and distractions that would keep you from hear the Holy Spirit voice when She speaks?
10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
The angel here that is bring the message is saying, “Do not worship me,” because he is a servant of those that have the testimony of Christ Jesus, but God brings the spiritual aspect or the Spirit of prophecy.
(4th) King on a white horse (Rev 19:11-21)
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
Here he is seeing that the heavenly level meaning is opening up. Those who worship the Father should worship in Spirit and in truth. To do so you must think in spiritual aspects with all things, you don’t just have eyes, but you have spiritual eyes. Which can go along also with things like a day. I have pointed out before that a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years a day, so God created the world in six thousand years, so technically speaking this world is somewhere around twelve thousand years old. You can learn more about this in the Gospel of Barnabas as well as the Biblical verses 2 Peter 3:8 and Psalm 90:4. This being true also, when Jesus died in the flesh and returned on the third day that would spiritually be the third millennium since a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years a day. So Jesus as the Logos rose up on the third spiritual day and the Logos manifested Himself in the third millennium.
The Acts of John 101 Nothing, therefore, of the things which they will say of me have I suffered: nay, that suffering also which I showed unto thee and the rest in the dance, I will that it be called a mystery. For what thou art, thou seest, for I showed it thee; but what I am I alone know, and no man else. Suffer me then to keep that which is mine, and that which is thine behold thou through me, and behold me in truth, that I am, not what I said, but what thou art able to know, because thou art akin thereto. Thou hearest that I suffered, yet did I not suffer; that I suffered not, yet did I suffer; that I was pierced, yet I was not smitten; hanged, and I was not hanged; that blood flowed from me, and it flowed not; and, in a word, what they say of me, that befell me not, but what they say not, that did I suffer. Now what those things are I signify unto thee, for I know that thou wilt understand. Perceive thou therefore in me the praising (al. slaying al. rest) of the (or a) Word (Logos), the piercing of the Word, the blood of the Word, the wound of the Word, the hanging up of the Word, the suffering of the Word, the nailing (fixing) of the Word, the death of the Word. And so speak I, separating off the manhood. Perceive thou therefore in the first place of the Word; then shalt thou perceive the Lord, and in the third place the man, and what he hath suffered.

The religious secular powers that be, brought the Logo (the Word) to a false trial which explains why they have removed books that are needed and brought about false teachings/religion itself and the canonization process. Everything that Christ did in the flesh He did as a living parable of the Logos. Which Him being the Word, (as stated above) that is what they buried under the earthly meaning, pierced, wounded, suffered, and hung. This explains so much with all the translations of the “Bible” that are mistranslated and all the books that have been removed. They have taken them out of sight of the people criticized and discredited them with false truths to lead the people away from God, the Spirit, Christ, and truth as much as possible.
Rev 6:2 and I saw, and lo, a white horse, and he who is sitting upon it is having a bow, and there was given to him a crown, and he went forth overcoming, and that he may overcome.
In Rev 19:11 we see the white horse like we did in Rev 6. It appears that this white horse was false religion. This is contrasted with Jesus who is the truth, which is called the Word of God.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
His clothes were His actions, deeds, and righteousness. They defiled His righteousness but it basically became a badge of honor for Him in the end. He is riding a white horse and we are riding with Him as His army. We are the bride of Christ that is to be arrayed in fine white linen without spot or blemish. We are going out to do battle with the earthly armies, kings, or teachers.
15 And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
Isaiah 11:4 And he hath judged in righteousness the poor, And decided in uprightness for the humble of earth, And hath smitten earth with the rod of his mouth, And with the breath of his lips he putteth the wicked to death. 5 And righteousness hath been the girdle of his loins, And faithfulness — the girdle of his reins.
The rod of His mouth, it’s a measuring rod, and the word canon has to do with the word cane, so this all has to do with the measure of something. Canon that is taught in the aspect that you may very well understand it to be is an accepted list of books that are seen as authoritative and anything else that has not been listed as accepted is not to be acknowledged or read. The rod of His mouth is actually what He says, and not some list of books that are established by the pharasitical counsels, which are the very ones He warned us about. It is what He says, that is the rod or the canon and it is solid.
Rev 14 18 and another messenger did come forth out from the altar, having authority over the fire, and he called with a great cry to him having the sharp sickle, saying, `Send forth thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, because come to perfection have her grapes;’19 and the messenger did put forth his sickle to the earth, and did gather the vine of the earth, and did cast [it] to the great wine-press of the wrath of God;20 and trodden was the wine-press outside of the city, and blood did come forth out of the wine-press — unto the bridles of the horses, a thousand, six hundred furlongs. Gospel of Thomas 40 Jesus said, “A grapevine has been planted outside of the Father, but being unsound, it will be pulled up by its roots and destroyed.”
This vine being the vine of the earth, or the false vine are also the teachings of the earth, which will be cast into the great wine-press of the wrath of God.
Going back up to Rev 19:13 where it says about the vesture dipped in blood. We see the blood of the saints, and if you think about it wine is the blood of the grape. All these terms, are used throughout the book of Revelation to show those who are deceived or fixated on the level of the flesh or teach on the level of the flesh. Much of what Jesus did like healing the blind man is seen in the physical as a miracle, but it is so great that people focus only on the physical aspect of it and look past the spiritual aspect of it. People see that miracle being the greatness of that act, but it is so much more than just simply physically giving that man sight. In essence, humanity tends to cling to the physical and forget about the spiritual, so they miss so much of what is happening. Which is why the things that are revealed to us are revealed to us by God Himself, through the Holy Spirit.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords. 17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; 18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
Paul helps us out very well by filling in the blanks and giving us things we can use to figure out Revelation. (Read) 1 Thess 4:13-18 and Rev 19:17 they both speak of an angel with a loud voice. These are the saints that have become angelic. This is so, because if you remember Steven and the people referring to him as having the face of an angel (Acts 6:15). As well as Elijah at the transfiguration (Matt. 17:1-13) he was also in an angelic state. Adam and Eve also had the bright nature before sin, and you see that in the book of Adam and Eve, and Paul alludes to that book many times especially in 2 Corinthians. We will neither marry or be given in marriage, like the angels in heaven (Matt. 22:30; Mark 12:25; Luke 20:34) so this will be our future state. (Read) 1 Thess 5:1-11 In 1 Thess 4 it starts out saying, “I do not wish you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep” the ones that are asleep here appear to be the ones that are asleep in the spiritual sense, not the physically dead. These are the people who don’t have the light, they don’t walk in the day they walk in the night. They are drunk on the earthly teachings. They are asleep in Jesus, but dead in Christ. These people in 1 Thess 5 are concerned about their souls and their salvation as well as being concerned about their brothers and sister being drunk with the night (false teachings), and falling for the lies. So, those that sleep in Jesus which is means in the bodily (physical) sense, this is them being so impressed by the physical deeds and resurrection that they lose sight of Jesus as the Logos. This would explain much of the Christian world today, they are so focused on the physical, that they are easily lead astray from the spiritual and all the things the Pharasitical counsels did to hide (burry) the Word (removing books), piercing the Word (inputting false translations), it was simply forgotten and overlooked for two thousand years. The hard question that has been on my mind for a while and I have come to the conclusion of the same thing that Paul is explaining here, those people that are dead in Christ, are not doomed, it says in 1 Thess 4:16 that, “the dead in Christ shall rise first.” So, all those who are asleep will somehow come out of that sleep. “The Lord will descend from heaven with a shout,” so the heavenly level (spiritual) meaning will be visible to them. At the (7th) trump of God, those who are dead will receive Christ (heavenly level meanings) “that which is not revealed by flesh and blood, but by the Father” (Remember what Jesus said about Peter?). If you are worried about those around you (family and friends), worry not, because “He will come with ten thousands of His saints,” “behold He comes with clouds (of witnesses).” Those of us who see the truth and it is revealed to us by the Holy Spirit, we are the clouds (armies of the elect), and we are the witnesses for these people. Which is why we have to press on with our studies, prayer, research, and listening to the Spirit as She speaks to us. The dead in Christ shall rise first, which means those shall be given the Christ nature, revelation, the Christ level meaning, the heavenly meaning, or the spiritual meaning/sight. Those who are alive and remain, being the New Testament and the New Testament prophets which have life in them, they are accepted in the churches and they remain, they shall be caught up together with them in the clouds. So, He is saying, that His Words will not return void. So, the destruction comes upon them by shinning a light, into the darkened, drunken, sleeping world. Where all lies of the night will be destroyed from them and they will see the truth. The night is the six thousand years. They are victims of false teachings which is why they are deceived or in Jesus words, they stumble. He is reassuring us here that God has not appointed us to wrath. No matter if we are awake or asleep we shall be together with Him! The great news is that the Christians shall have salvation weather they realize this for the two thousand years or not. He is going to battle against the institutions and come after those that hide the truth from His people.
Matt 24:27 for as the lightning doth come forth from the east (beginnings), and doth appear unto the west (endings) (the whole of the scriptures will be revealed from beginning to end), so shall be also the presence of the Son of Man; 28 for wherever the carcass may be, there shall the eagles (the dead church) be gathered together. 29 `And immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from the heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken; 30 and then shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in the heaven; and then shall all the tribes of the earth smite the beast, and they shall see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of the heaven (cloud of witnesses and armies of heaven), with power and much glory; 31 and he shall send his messengers with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his chosen from the four winds, from the ends of the heavens unto the ends thereof (so from the east to the west).
Again, so even if the people are asleep they will be saved, He will send His angels out with great trumpets as well as sending out His elect to help too.
19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. 20 And the beast (religious institution) was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
You know how a little earlier in this chapter we talked about people being focused on the physical aspects of Jesus and not the spiritual. This focus also helps the false prophet deceive people, because he will be able to do miracles and people will not look at the spiritual aspect of them, but become in awe, drunken on his worldly works. You can see this in the world now, Satan is gathering everything that stands against God. They are preparing for battle, God’s people are coming to and so are Satan’s people. Which is why there are several of us separating from the institution and diligently seeking God through the Holy Spirit. We are coming out of the wood works, all different paths behind us but leading straight ahead to God and letting it be made known who God truly is, and not what the world and the worldly religious institutions have made Him to be. We have been give the Power, the Sword, the truth of God’s word. We are given the orders to do as we are to do, and we have to be given the ability to do this. Enoch 1:9; Jude 14 and 15, we are to wage war against them, they gather against us (the religious institution) and we gather against them. The beast which is the religious institution (false Christianity) and with the false prophet are destroyed being cast into the lake of fire.
Gospel of Thomas 29) Jesus said, If the flesh (The lower-level of the Scriptures) came into being because of spirit (That the higher, Spiritual level is couched in the lower, physical level), it is a wonder. But if spirit (The higher level meaning, by means of the Holy, Elect Children) came into being because of the body (Born of the Woman, or the flesh and blood, reproducing after the, lower, fleshly meaning of the Scriptures), it is a wonder of wonders. Indeed, I am amazed at how this great wealth (The higher level meaning of the Scriptures) has made its home (Couched itself) in this poverty (The lower level meaning of the Scriptures).
The fact that the spirit has couched itself in the flesh, is the thing that give the antichrist that false teaching/false Christianity that is what give them the power to lie. In other words they took Christ and made Him Jesus to twist the truth and deceive the people. The false prophet that has been spoken about, is described in 2 Thess 2.
2 Thess 2:8 and then shall be revealed the Lawless One, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the manifestation of his presence, 9 [him,] whose presence is according to the working of the Adversary, in all power, and signs, and lying wonders, 10 and in all deceitfulness of the unrighteousness in those perishing, because the love of the truth they did not receive for their being saved, 11 and because of this shall God send to them a working of delusion, for their believing the lie, 12 that they may be judged — all who did not believe the truth, but were well pleased in the unrighteousness.
The lying wonders is the flesh, because they did not love the truth. This is in reference to the ones who lulled the people to sleep. This false teaching exist up until that day and that is why they are cast alive into the brimstone, they will still be in this world running the religion/false Christianity. All religions, secularism, any that deny the old or new testament, atheism, or any man made religions that have nothing to do with Christianity will be destroyed by the truth, by the words of Jesus, or the sword that comes out of His mouth. Because of Christ Word (sword), we are able to overcome false religion and the entire established order or institution.
