The Apolitic Nature of Revelations pt.3. The next question that we will look at is, 5. Why are so many interested and captivated by the Book of Revelations ? Revelations is a book of many things, prophecy, symbolism, joy, terror and mystery. It captivates people because it is the only book in any religion that gives specifics on the coming end of the world. This book is the only one in the world that can be proven by History and current events of its prophecy’s. Scofield said of Revelations; “Interpreters of the Revelation should bear in mind two important passages: 1Pe_1:12; 2Pe_1:20-21. Doubtless much which is designedly obscure to us will be clear to those for whom it was written as the time approaches.” Of which I agree. Many of the passages of Revelations are and will be intrepreted as the day of Christ gets near. What our brothers of the past could not understand is made clear to us. 6. What is the synagogue of Satan ? Rev 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Isa 49:23 And kings shall be thy nursing fathers, and their queens thy nursing mothers: they shall bow down to thee with their face toward the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD: for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me. Isa 60:14 The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee, The city of the LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
So what is the synagogue [A building or place of meeting for worship and religious instruction in the Jewish faith.] of Satan ? They who say they are Jews(Christians) (Saved, Redemed,Christ Like), pretending thereby to be of the synagogue of God, and consequently his true and peculiar children.1Jo 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: A congregation of sinners led by Satans will, persecutors of Christians and Jews, “the assembly of Satan.” We see many today around the world, false religions that say they are of God but dont know Him. God warned us of these in scripture. Jer 14:14 Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart. Jer 23:32 Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the LORD.Zec 10:2 For the idols have spoken vanity, and the diviners have seen a lie, and have told false dreams; they comfort in vain: therefore they went their way as a flock, they were troubled, because there was no shepherd.Mal 3:5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of Host. 7. Who is the Great Whore ? Rev 17:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth. Rev 17:3-5 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.[Jer_46:10] Lets look at the phrase,”the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour” We know that the woman is a false religious system for the clothing she wears, signifies a religious system of pious hierarchy.Corruption of all that is rightious. The next phrase, ”BABYLON THE GREAT” shows us also of a false idolitic system. In Rev 17:18 we see that she is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth. A city of great power, wealth and influence. “Sitting upon a scarlet coloured beast” signifies that this city will ride with the anti-Christ into world power. Rev 17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
