This is the most beautiful sky I have seen in a long time, and in it, I see God. He has made such a beautiful world, and gave US the responsibility to take care of it !!! Even when we mistreat it, and when our actions are responsible for destruction, He shows us more and more beauty. True and just are his judgments, and He’s not responsible for the destruction that takes place in Revelation, men are. They refuse God, over and over, they never repent, they never glorify God, even after many plagues... .

"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away." - Revelation 21:4, Holy Bible (King James Version)
During the Great Tribulation, there will be followers of Christ and followers of the Beast. Followers of Christ will worship Him and have the name of His Father written on their foreheads. Whereas the followers of the Beast will worship the Beast and have the mark of the Beast. Come through tonight to learn more and study with us! DM for the deets! #andJesus#EatAndGetFed#ComeThrough#BookOfRevelation
LISTEN and HEAR .
It’s so important to listen, to other people and to God, and it’s so important to hear them too ! Yes, I want to hear God’s voice, but I know to do that, I need to listen. I need to spend time in silent prayer, and I need to spend time in God’s Word. Easier said than done, I know 😉

It's hard to believe it's already been a full year since you transitioned from this life to the next. And honestly, it's been difficult without you this past year. Some days I look towards tomorrow with hope, but more times than others, it feels like I haven't made it past day zero, and I mourn for you all over again. Your footprints are still imprinted across my sands, and I'm not the only one that feels as so. You've strongly affected several others during your time here with us. Even people who are just learning of you can immediately understand how special you are. Whatever your purpose on this earth was, whatever goal you were destined to accomplish, you must have done so to leave too soon. Even I'm no longer the person I once was, and I know it's because of you. And in small, subtle ways, you still let me know that things are okay, and all I can do is smile when I notice and say thanks. So even after a year of wax and waning emotions, I genuinely believe you're up above smiling as such because you continue to live on through so many people. Miss you so very much, love you forever.

I believe this verse is about the Blessed Virgin Mary, my Mother in Heaven, and in Revelation 12, we can contemplate her giving birth to our Savior ! I could talk about her, and how inspiring she is for a long while, but instead I’ll let you read her story for yourself 😂
Have a good weekend !!

'Then God's temple in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant could be seen in the temple.
There were flashes of lightning, rumblings, and peals of thunder, an earthquake, and a violent hailstorm.
A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun,
with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.'
"Willing to set up an image of all goodness and beauty and to make clearly manifest His own, in her, to both angels and men, God fashioned a being supremely good and beautiful, uniting in her all good, seen and unseen, which when He made the world He distributed to each thing and thereby adorned all. Or rather one might say, He showed her forth as a universal mixing bowl of all divine, angelic and human things good and beautiful and the supreme beauty which embellished both worlds. By her rising now from the tomb, she is taken from the earth and attains to Heaven and this also she surpasses, uniting those on high with those below, and encompassing all with the wondrous deed wrought in her." — St. Gregory Palamas #bookofrevelation#mothermary#assumption

QUESTION ON REV. 1:1-3
Revisiting the Apocalypse According to John with word analysis and interpretive questions. This particular approach keeps me constantly engage on a daily basis with the original language. At the same time to, being that I’m prone to over-emphasizing parallels, I’m confronted with how infrequently that certain words actually get use in a pericope. In this case, I’ve sectioned off 1.1-3. I identify this unit as introductory to the entire book.
One of the questions that I have never seen addressed is: why the specificity with the apocalypse being from God, to Jesus, to the angel, and to John? It’s not about the individual components but it’s about the entirety of the picture being portrayed. Is it to further enhance the view of how prophecy is communicated? Is it to emphasize a post-resurrection reality or is it how prophetic transmission has always occurred?
It’s one thing to say that Old Testament prophetic literature provides evidence that Angels are involve in the communication of prophecy (prophetic experience), yet this is a very detailed description. It’s an interpretive question because we have to understand what is it attempting to communicate by such detail.

Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
"And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth." - Four Horsemen #BookofRevelation
What do the seven churches in the book of Revelation mean? The seven churches described in Revelation 2-3 are seven literal churches at the time that John the apostle was writing Revelation. These churches were located in western Anatolia. Though they were literal churches in that time, there is also spiritual significance for churches and believers today. The first purpose of the letters was to communicate with the literal churches and meet their needs at that time. The second purpose is to reveal seven different types of individuals/churches throughout history and instruct them in God's truth. The seven churches are:
_ #1 Ephesus (Revelation 2:1-7) - the church that had forsaken its first love, Christ Jesus.
_ #2 Smyrna (Revelation 2:8-11) - the church that would suffer persecution. The Devil threw some of them into prison and there they had their faith tested. They were told to be faithful unto death and God would give them the crown of life.
_ #3 Pergamum (Revelation 2:12-17) - the church that needed to repent. Jesus told them that Satan's throne is located in Pergamum, Turkey. He then said that the church has people who hold to the teachings of Balaam which is a stumbling block that causes people to worship idols and practice sexual immorality.
_ #4 Thyatira (Revelation 2:18-29) - the church that had a false prophetess. Jesus compared the false prophetess with Queen Jezebel who taught false teachings and seduced people to practice sexual immorality and worship idols.
_ #5 Sardis (Revelation 3:1-6) - the church that had fallen asleep. The church was in a deep spiritual coma. Jesus told them to wake up, to strengthen what is about to die, to remember and keep the message of grace that the church had received and heard.
_ #6 Philadelphia (Revelation 3:7-13) - the church that had endured patiently.
_ #7 Laodicea (Revelation 3:14-22) - the church with the lukewarm faith. Jesus told them he will spit them out of his mouth because they were living lukewarm lives. He later told them to be zealous and repent. Jesus reproves and disciplines those he loves.
