False Teaching: Understanding the Words in Revelation

Here is something I have become extremely sick and tired of, that I have been subjected to my entire life and it still is going on today. What I am speaking of are those ignorant Bible “scholars” and theologians who think they can tell us just exactly what the book of Revelation in the Bible means. The Internet is bombarded with false teachings and false teachers who insist they have an exact timeline of how the Last Days will play out.

One of the biggest mistakes these buffoons make is their failure to understand and comprehend the most simplest words written in the Scriptures. Why? Because knowledge of and comprehension of the entire words of the LORD God might not fit so conveniently into the narratives and agendas of brainwashed ministers and pastors who have passed along false doctrine for years, with no end in sight.

When it comes to the Book of Revelation, the biggest failure I see is the lack of understanding of the very first chapter; specifically verse 19. The LORD God was very precise in telling John what to write in this book of Revelation. His instructions were as follows: “Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter.”

“Hast seen” is a past tense. The LORD God wanted John to include in his writings things which he “hast seen.” John was one of Jesus’ apostles and many, many things (including the “mysteries”) Jesus showed John. Including those things John “hast seen” and “the things which are” takes care of just about everything from the beginning of Creation up until the present time with John on the island of Patmos. After these things, the LORD God instructs John to write “the things which shall be hereafter.” So, how then, can the Book of Revelation be only a book of prophetic uttering of things that will happen in the future?

Short of God’s Holy Spirit having complete control over a person, much in the same way as all previous prophets and any apostles with a double dose of the Holy Spirit, a person has to include ALL the things that the Scriptures include throughout history, before they can begin to determine exactly which of John’s writings are speaking of the past, present, or future.

It has become so bad that the Internet is now loaded with all these people who claim to have figured out the “mysteries” that the LORD God promised would all be revealed before the End arrives.

My only advice to readers is to do your own “studying to show thyself approved” unto the LORD God and seek your truth and direction from the Holy Spirit. Earnestly seek the LORD God’s Truth and He has promised he will show it to you…in doses He knows you can handle.

I’m not saying to disregard all of these “teachers.” What I am saying is take what they have to say and bring it to prayer and lay it up against the Word of God and see if it agrees with God’s Word.

Chaos will soon be upon us. Are you at peace with that? Do you know where you are going when Jesus comes to take his believers home?
