To my understanding.
The man given title is Revelation-
But, the God given title is in the first verse.
Rev:1:1
The Revelation of Jesus Christ...

Rev 5:6
And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a LAMB AS IT HAD BEEN SLAIN, having seven horns, and seven eyes, which are the SEVEN SPIRITS OF GOD sent forth into all the earth.
---char on 5/28/10


Mark Eaton, I totally agree that we are to guard our hearts, bodies, minds & spirits against the enemy's fiery darts, including the darts of false teachers. However, you have made your stand. Even God doesn't take a person's right to work out their own salvation (with fear & trembling) away from them. And Timothy considered this kind of arguing back & forth "vain babblings". Vain means pride. Are you positive as to the reason you insist on being right? Have you ever been so sure before... & found you were wrong? Maybe it's time to search your heart, Mark.

Francis, Mark E is correct, there is no need to add to Scripture. Revelation is already hard to understand without someone adding more to it. While there is symbols mention in Rev. much of it is also literal. Not everything is symbolic. Each context to it's own. Just take the words, "A sharp two edged sword" Rev. 1:16
A large two edged broad sword. It signifies Judgment (2:16, 19:15) on those who attacked His people and destroy His church.
---MarkV. on 5/28/10


Sorry, I cannot agree.

The greek word is semaino, to signify, to identify, to indicate.
---Mark_Eaton on 5/26/10

to signify, to identify,to indicate: How did God do this in revelation?
It is not with symbols?

Let's see how many SYMBOLS INDENTIFY things in revelation:
DRAGON- satan
SUN
WOMAN- CHURCH
Locusts
1/3 of the start
wormwood

I could go on and on, BUt the word SIGNIGY here in revelation, lets us know that the things I have mentioned above are not literal. They are SYMBOLS indocating, or identifying other things.

Even in the rest of the bible it is the same
If i be LIFTED UP i will draw all men unto me, what is lifted up?
It is not a symbol for death?
---FRANCIS on 5/27/10


Fay, as to your question about the seven spirits found in Rev. 4:5 and Rev. 1:4, There is two possible meanings
1. A reference to Isaiah's prophecy concerning the 7-fold ministry of the Holy Spirit (Isa. 11:2)
2. More likely, it is a reference to the lampstand with 7 lamps (a menorah) in Zechariah-also a description of the Holy Spirit.
In either case, 7 is the number of completeness, so John is indentifying the fullness of the Holy Spirit.
Seven Churches, seven lampstands, and the seven spirits.
---MarkV. on 5/27/10




I know there are some who disagree so let's just leave it at that.
---fay on 5/26/10

My question to you Fay, is what is the church supposed to do with false teaching? Both Peter and Jude tell us that false teachers will come with their seductive teaching and that God has long reserved their judgment. But what are we supposed to do about it?

2 Pet 3:17 "You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of unprincipled men and fall from your own steadfastness"

We are to be on our guard against the false teachers, not just agree to disagree. We are to raise our shields of faith and repel the darts of untruth from the false teachers.
---Mark_Eaton on 5/27/10


I appreciate everyone's responses. Let's just try to be a little more civil shall we. I do believe that most of the Bible is literal, not symbolic. I know there are some who disagree so let's just leave it at that.

I appreciate those who are diligently studying this question & not just blurting out beliefs they've been taught. Thank you very much.
---fay on 5/26/10


SIGNIFIED here means symbols, the Locust is a symbol.
---francis on 5/25/10

Sorry, I cannot agree.

The greek word is semaino, to signify, to identify, to indicate. The word is used in 5 other passages in the NT, in John and Acts. In every passage, the word is used to INDICATE the manner of something, or the kind of something, or type of something, not to indicate that SYMBOLS will be used.

Accordingly, your usage of this word makes the letters to the churches a SIGN, the throne room scene a SIGN, and the visitation of Jesus to John, a SIGN.

Francis, I do not know what kind of drink you are drinking when you study, but the word "Signified" does not mean symbol. in which you then try to connect it to Rev. 9:3 locust. Francis, there is no need to add to Scripture.
"Signified" is "semaino" and means " to indicate" or "signify" meaning, to be an indication of, to make known, as by a sign, words, V. to be important.
---MarkV. on 5/25/10


---Mark_Eaton on 5/25/10

To answer your quetsions
1: The Locust:
Revelation 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass, and he sent and signified [it] by his angel unto his servant John:

SIGNIFIED here means symbols, the Locust is a symbol.
Revelation 9:7 And the shapes of the locusts [were] like unto horses prepared unto battle, and on their heads [were] as it were crowns like gold, and their faces [were] as the faces of men.

Now can you see the men riding horses with turbands?

You 2nd question: I do not believe that the whole book has been completed, but much of it has, and some of it remains to be fulfilled.
---francis on 5/25/10


Mark_Eaton,

I was just tryin' to be silly, but I keep forgetting to add LOLs and :~)s. It was really an Amen to your response.

Of course, we should study. i just noticed certain tagged verses from certain groups, and this verse is one of them.
---aka_joseph on 5/24/10


Revelation 9:4
This was fulfled identically during the years of which Islam made war with europe.
---francis on 5/22/10

Pardon me, but I missed the historical books talking about armored locusts that looked like men stinging them for 5 months but yet the locusts did not harm any plants or grasses.

If you believe the whole book of the Revelation has been completed, why do you talk about prophesy at all? If its been fulfilled its not prophesy its history.

The only way you can make the book of the Revelation fulfilled is to make all of it symbolic and not literal.
---Mark_Eaton on 5/25/10


Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
---aka_joseph on 5/21/10

I do and pray that you do also.

I am not sure what you were trying to say to me. The key phrase in this verse is UNTO GOD. I do not to expect to be approved by you or others. My desire is to be approved by the Heavenly Father, who sees my devotion and effort. It is He who has given me the gift and it is unto Him that I devote myself to its exercise.
---Mark_Eaton on 5/24/10


earl,

Please try to hear what I have already said. I was having a discussion about Isaiah 11:2 with two others. I was trying to get something clarified. As far as the question regarding Rev, I did not address this. I am still studying it.

However, you singled me out, and I did not refute anyone about what they said about Rev.

So, please control your venom against me especially in the light that two others talked about the Isaiah scripture and you did not say a single thing to them. Do you have something else that is bothering you about me in particular?

They are representative of the seven days of the week. God instructed Moses to make the golden menorah . The menorah is an 8 branched candlestand with the added 8th candle used to kindle the other candle or 7 candles in the menorah. Hanukkah . Remarkably, 8 score after Hanukkah began God laid the Cornerstone of The Temple, Jesus Christ the Light of the world, born on December 25.

---aka_joseoh on 5/22/10


Mark_Eaton on 5/21/10

There are several clues in the text itself that let us know they are time related.
One of the clues is WORMWOOD, another clue is this text fround both in the bible, and in the Mohumidain war commands:


Revelation 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree, but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads

This was fulfled identically during the years of which Islam made war with europe.


Revelation 9:5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment [was] as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.

//I believe akajoseph has,from his list of spirits, named 4 of the spirits from his biblical search but even so his source does not firmly or specifically state they are "spirits of God" in relation to or imply that they are who John saw and wrote of.//

what i wrote is straight out of Isaiah 2. I try to stay away from taking individual cherry picked verses that satisfy my personal doctrine. i repeated what was already written, so maybe it is you that searches for what fits your personal doctrine.
---aka_joseph on 5/22/10


Great explanation earl. Thank you. Yes, catherine, I too assumed the 7 spirits were spirits of judgment. It does appear that way.

Activity before the throne: It is significant that from and before the throne there are lightnings and thunderings and voices, and SEVEN LAMPS OF FIRE. Here the throne is one of judgment, not of grace. Judgment is pending and ready to break....Just because God is long-suffering, endures, put-up with. Don't become complacent. Because one day soon, God might say, "I don't feel like being that nice today". Hallelujah.

John pointed out 7 spirits who appeared in form and shape to him as identical to each other and resided or was present at a specific location inhabited by a multitude of intelligent beings normally invisible to the human eye.
---earl on 5/21/10


francis, 7 is God's perfect number. My pastor used to say if you wanted to read through the Bible quickly you could read every 7th verse & still hit all the important points.
---fay on 5/21/10


Mark Eaton, I didn't mean to be saying you were wrong, only that in order to reach people we must be more careful how we say that we believe they are wrong. Please understand me here. Assuming you are right & she is wrong, how do you think it is beneficial to just come out & say it? I know space is limited here but we still need to approach with love & humility if at all possible. Since I asked the question I felt responsible to make sure no one is offended to the point they are unwilling to see another point of view. After all, our purpose on earth is to preach. And, yes, there are times when we must offend but not in this setting. At least that is my opinion.

Mark_Eaton,

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

when this v. is quoted, do you:
a) roll your eyes,
b) do a 180,
c) grab a large shaker of salt, or
d) shake in your boots and read with bated breath because the quoter of that verse must be so 'awesome'?

So many people twist scripture to make it mean what they want it to mean.
---Fay on 5/20/10

I would also say that many people ADD to the Scripture.

For example, Francis has stated that the seven seals, bowl, and trumpets represent historical time periods on the earth.

Well, where is that in Scripture?

It is NOT and this is my point to you.

Francis and others take the prophesies and express them upon something else (like time) instead of just reading them out of the Bible as they exist.

Unless we have the correct interpretation of a prophesy, doing anything more than using the prophesy as it exists is INCORRECTLY interpreting it.
---Mark_Eaton on 5/21/10


Exodus 25:31 And thou shalt make a candlestick [of] pure gold: .

Exodus 25:32 And six branches shall come out of the sides of it, three branches of the candlestick out of the one side, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side:

Revelation 4:5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and [there were] seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.

God really deals in sevens, after SIX everything is completed, At seven is the supernatural work of God.

John saw Seven spirits.They have form.If they have form then they have consciousness-a living substance having a particular field of responsibility to the ministry of the human race.John surely would not have mentioned an insignificent detail.They were visible to John with assistance thus the human range of sight is normally restricted .Where there is spirit form regardless of apparent shape there is intelligence so I do not recon a future time line episode or a upcoming event as some speculate.
John gave no clue to their function and in the day he wrote the common folk were at loss to understand.
---earl on 5/20/10


And Jesus is still alive today in Spirit & it is His job to convict, in other words, reveal the truth. The Word also says that each one must work out their own salvation with fear & trembling. If he were here in physical we could ask him what a certain scripture meant and then we could tell others, "I asked Jesus about that and he said it meant..." Since he is Spirit and there are other spirits in this world we don't always know which spirit someone else is hearing. We don't have the right to tell them our interpretation is the only right one. Because even though the Word says there is no private interpretation, we know that there are so many. So many people twist scripture to make it mean what they want it to mean.
---Fay on 5/20/10


sorry fay I cant write about the other 2 opinions ,because that what they are,mans opinion,not Gods word.

The seven spirits are the part of Jesus, or the Spirit of Jesus, or the Holy Spirit.
---Mark_Eaton on 5/19/10

You may have missed something very important in my post.

I said there were seven periods of the seal, and the trumpets.
and in ALL seven periods the SPIRIT OF GOD IS PRESENT AND WORKING.

in basic words, It is the spirit of God working in these seven periods until the end.

Not in any way, shape, or form denying that it is the spirit of God, just showing that it is present in the earth in all seven periods.

If Jesus were on these blogs, you would more than likely tell him the same thing you told Mark Eaton. To most of the christians on these blogs, Jesus would be just another poster with his own opinions. Remember, Jesus' answer is the only right one and you would mock Mark for preaching the right one?

---fay on 5/19/10

I will respond to your point, then your question.

The prophecy of the Word of God is not given to our own private interpretation (2 Pet 1:20) but the interpretation is God's. Therefore, do not have your own opinion on prophecy, have God's opinion.

The answer to your question is found in the next chapter.

Rev 5:6 "And I saw between the throne (with the four living creatures) and the elders a Lamb standing, as if slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, sent out into all the earth"

The seven spirits are the part of Jesus, or the Spirit of Jesus, or the Holy Spirit.

God loves francis as much as He loves you & I. Let's not create tension but discussion in the bond of unity & love.(John17) Thank you for your participation & cooperation.

---fay on 5/19/10


Thank you francis for clarifying. You could be right.
---fay on 5/19/10

I must disagree.

Francis is violating her own statements about using the Bible to reference itself. When we use the Bible as a reference for the seven spirits, we find the Seven Spirits are already listed in Isaiah 11. Joseph has given you the correct answer.
---Mark_Eaton on 5/19/10


Thank you francis for clarifying. You could be right.

I always assumed the 7 spirits were the 7 periods of judgment but someone asked me & in order to give them a correct answer I realized I needed to do some research. I appreciate everyone's input. I just do not want any arguing or arrogance. I love you as brothers & sisters.

tom2, it is true that most people don't have any idea what is really important. You ask someone what can't they live without & you find out what they really value. But you forgot to give the other 2 opinions you spoke of.

SEVEN SEALS

1st: Pure ( white horse) gospel message going out to the world. AD 27-AD 100
2nd: Red horse: purty of the gospel starts to be corrupted.The mystery of iniquity already worked in Paul's day AD 100-AD 311
3rd: A black horse--the very opposite of white. Dark ages AD 538-AD ? No bible available to the public.
4th: pale or yellowish from dark ages to the time of the reformers
5th seal: fight of the RCC against the reformers
6TH: TODAY

---fay on 5/19/

TRUE

7 churches are indeed seven stages of the church.
It stated out as a pure church, then lost it's love for God, and continues to today where we are neither hot nor cold. We have 2000+ denominations to choose from, and in every era. God is present.

7 trumpets do reveal seven political statges of the decline of rome. To include

Seven seal reveal the seven decline of gospel message from a pure message to the dark ages, to today when we have a mixture of pure and impure a greenish message so to speak.

And that is the truth.

The purpose of this question is to illuminate truth, not ridicule each other because we differ in opinion.

Elroy, Even though the 7 lights represent the 7 spirits, the lights can't be the spirits. God is light but his light illuminates truth & love , etc... not just light.

Elder, 7 fold ministry & 7 angels of judgment warrant further study but Is.11:2 makes more sense. However, the rest of Is.11 talks about judgment.

lionofjudah, God may be one spirit but he represents so many characteristics & it's in the Word so it is important.

The 7 lamps of fire are the 7 spirits of God. John saw this in the present tense it will occur later also.
Spirits in this passage is the Greek word "Pneuma." It means a current of air. It was rarely used as wind but in Acts there was a "Rushing mighty wind."
Wind has some interesting contrast To God. Wind can be known for its strength, vigor and force. Also for gentleness, breezes, quietness and calmness. This describes the Holy Spirit too.
The H/S restrains sin, convicts sinners, regenerates the lost, seals believers, baptizes them with power, indwells and fills them.
This passage can refer to Christ on the earth Isa 11:1-3. His H/S 7 fold ministry as above or maybe the 7 Angels of Judgement in Rev 8:1-6.
