Unsealing the Seven Churches of the Book of Revelation: Part 1
The Book of Revelation is a very enigmatic book which envisions events and scenarios that are out of this world and no single, sane individual can completely claim and prove that he is in absolute comprehension of the messages it convey. This apocalyptic book, which is actually the last chapter of the Bible, claimed that those who will read it on the latter days will be blessed.
Is it really possible to read something you can not understand and at the same time be blessed?
The days where we are living now, upon observing events currently taking place around us, you will learn is a trying moment for each and every one of us, whether Atheist, Evolutionist, Christians, Muslims, Hindus, etc. The prophecies of Christ at the Mt. of Olives were already being brought into fruition to the point that no one, even disbelievers, can deny the truth of its existence.
In the chapters that will follow on this hub, I will try to uncover some hidden truths behind the 7 churches which are in Asia as spoken of by the Apostle John in the Isle of Patmos. The enormity of these claims, whether valid or not, I will already leave unto you as my audience.
1. The Church of Ephesus
 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
- This pertains to the present day Atheists, Evolutionists, Scientists and Professionals out there who once believed, but over time, abandoned the faith, in lieu of materialism, Darwinism, and the logical and irresistible truth provided by Science and Technology. They worked hard patiently to prove that Creation, Life and Universe does not have a superstitious origin or that everything that happen has logic and does not necessarily need a Divine concept.
Their works has the approval of God in that He said, you People of this Church indeed has the truth and had proven that the superstitious people who claimed to know Me are liars through the evidences around you which I have set in motion for your exploration on these days.
 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
- You have worked hard for my name's sake. You have not fainted and grown tired in search of the truths I have so hidden,which I intended to disclose to you from the beginning, because of your genuine desire to save Humanity from Religious falsehoods that you believe is tormenting the society from experiencing a more vibrant and happier life.
 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
- After finding the truth which I myself had given you, you abandoned me just like that and worshiped that which I have created instead.
 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
- Do not keep on ignoring me. All the truths I have given you points at me, A divine Creator and not a blind design. Remember that very well! Otherwise, the light of science which you treasure most will I come to take and start spreading darkness and confusion over it. I will pervert reasons, put science into its deadly edge to punish you from your defiance towards me. Repent now or I will do it.
 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
- You have shown the world how I can be found through persistence, diligence, patience and hard work. Indeed, these are the keys to finding me and a step forward for your salvation unlike most religious people who rely on the false hopes of the Nicolaitans who perpetrate my sacrifice and grace into excuse and licentiousness.
 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
- Whoever from among you hearkens unto my voice, will I give more hidden knowledge and truth. You will be studying and exploring the crux of all existence located at the bosom of my paradise. This time, I will not anymore withhold it unlike what I did to Adam and Eve and all succeeding generations who did not overcame the wiles of the Devil.
This time, I will make you to give light and hope to the people. All because you have hearkened unto my voice...
2. The Church in Smyrna
 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
- This Church is addressed to the Business Establishments, Large Companies, Celebrities, Authorities in Government and People who are at the top of the food chain to whom the lives of the masses hinge largely. God said, once, I have caused you to suffer in poverty and tribulations but I have made you rich in spiritual discernment to lead and to conquer poverty so that nobody can deceive or fool you to fall into their trap, instead, I have made you wiser above the rest to discern who is telling the truth and who is telling a lie and to judge properly for your own benefit.
The hour will come, and now it is, when the Devil will disguise as light bringer and change the rules of the game. He will introduce new concepts, processes and techniques with the promise of bringing more Peace and Prosperity but in reality, these are evil plots to ensnare and enslave you and the people. Some of the examples of how these things will be implemented include: evil contract in exchange of fame and celebrity, replacement of genuine concern into enslavement of the employees through contractualization, job rotation, managed services and outsourcing for the agencies and large companies, corruption and manipulation of the sovereign people for the Government Authorities and abuse of power for the strong and persecution of the weak instead of loving concern in general.
 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
- Do not be afraid for I can hear your cries in silence. Many of you who are weak in spirit will give in and will impoverish and cause the people to suffer much but some of you will go against these treacherous acts. The Devil will force you to abandon your sense of righteousness in exchange of power and material possessions. Those who go against it will be persecuted, threatened and even be killed. These things are bound to happen until the appointed coming of Him who is to come. Whoever will hold on to his integrity and belief and will be found by the One who is to come doing so, will be counted worthy to be with Him to rule when that time comes. Those of you who will die for it shall I remember in my coming kingdom.
Marvel not, for the hour is already near (10 days is figurative, God Has his own calculator).
 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.
- Whoever from among you will endure this tribulation and persecution, I will take with me and exempt him from the coming tribulation that is going to test all the inhabitants of the earth.
3. The Church in Pergamos
 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;
 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.
- This primarily concerns the two biggest Religions: Christianity and Islam. Both Religion has been hijacked by Satan the Devil and manipulated them in such a way that the two will fight each other, one calling the other Anti Christ and the other one calling the other erratic and in-submissive to the one true God. The truth is both these Religions were founded by God to serve Him for specific purposes. But God also permitted the intrusion of Satan to truly test His servants through trials and persecutions not just mere obedience. To each of them, He gave varying sets of orders that does not harmonize with each other and was hard to be completely understood by the people and most specially, Satan. He wants Satan to work against Him and against His people but not allow him to know what He is planning to do. Satan was left clueless and thinking on his own, believing that He can outwit God and eradicate His Son from taking the throne he lusted so much for himself. God in turn knew how Satan will behave and think because He wired him personally and thus knew everything about him.
The One who is to come is figuratively referred to here as Antipas who is a person among you currently living in seclusion and spiritual transformation to save you from the impending calamities ahead through his own blood. The Muslims, the Jews, Some Christians, The Elites are all looking for him for varying reasons but the unsuspecting public has been misled to believe into something else very different.
 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
- Please refer to link below for the greater explanation of the Doctrine of Balaam.
In this context, God is referring to Muslims who are persecuting the Christians.
The Way of Balaam is to covertly deteriorate the traditional Christian way and make a way for the Islamization of everything starting from Educational Institutions, to Governments, to Businesses and Corporations and to Science and Technology.
What I meant is that the original Christian way of dealing with things, which is naturally kind, graceful and merciful, is now being replaced with Islamic way, which is strict and profit oriented. God said He is against this. He said this is a stumbling block before the Children of Israel who today are largely Americans. This is one of the primary reasons for the recessions and downfall of the western world.
 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
- The Doctrine of Nicolaitans in turn is the weakness of the Christians (turning the grace of God into licentiousness to commit sin and be free of repercussions) and the fortress of the Muslims.
If only you are able to rectify these 2 mysterious doctrines then life would be much better for them. But who is worthy who can do it? The Lion of the tribe of Judah, the offshoot of David, The Lamb of God, The one who is to Come. He will come and restore all things. So watch out, keep your eyes open less these things happen and you got left, unaware!
 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
- A new doctrine, greater in power, but not necessarily integrity, will be allowed by God to stumble down both these Religions. One candidate is the rising Communism in Russia and China, another is the advancement of New World Order agenda. Either way, God is going to challenge these Religions if and only if they will not repent from their sins and by repentance I do not mean to simply accept God or Christ or Muhammad or Muhammad's prophesied progeny as savior but to genuinely transform oneself into an attitude of Righteousness and continuous struggle to be more and more like unto a child qualified to inherit the Kingdom of God.
 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
- Qualifiers will be given Priestly office in the Kingdom and God will teach and reveal Him the secrets of how to genuinely transform people into a Christlike attitude of servitude and sacrifice for the ones we love. You will experience enlightenment, renewal and transformation of mind and spirit like nothing else. An identity appropriate for a white, unblemished stone customized just for you.

4. The Church in Thyatira
 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;
 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.
- The Church referred to here are the educated today who are employed, privately or publicly, ranging from Contractuals, to regular employees, to managers and up to the executive offices. These are the group of people working together to make things happen and provide specific service for the general public. I know that you do work hard, and are taking the extra mile to provide for family, friends and even reach out to people and institutions who are in need and who are stricken by calamities.
But among you, the most dedicated who simply work silently to deliver will most likely be neglected! Remember, however, that I will take you first in my Kingdom. For I am He who can read a person's Heart.
And whosoever among you are quick at taking advantage at the expense of others will become least in my Kingdom for I honor true service and despise the way of the Pharisees who announces to the world all of their accomplishments for the sake of popularity and success.
Those who are successful now already had their rewards.
Those who are working patiently and are neglected will be rewarded lavishly in my coming kingdom.
 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
- However, recently, I observed that you are already changing your work attitude from one that has uncompromising integrity and genuine service into one who manipulate, control, and pervert the truth in exchange of financial success. The Boss are taking advantage of the helplessness found in their subordinates and the subordinates, likewise, are slowly loosing their dedication for work but are quick to act when money starts to talk. Truly, you have allowed and tolerated the devious processes of the devil, which was introduced to you by the prophetess Jezebel (For elaborate meaning, please see link below), to pester and corrupt your workstation and to compromise your healthy relationship towards your clients and co-workers.
 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
- I have this Hub written to warn you to repent. Because if you do not...

- Stop Tolerating the Jezebel Spirit | Prayers and Promises
Stop TOLERATING the Jezebel spirit! These are my notes from a teaching I saw from Pastor Robert Morris of Gateway Church 2011 Pastors Conference in TX. The Jezebel spirit tries to get you to defile yourself on the inside or outside to disqualify you
 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
- I will hang you on a balance and withhold your profit together with your partners, unless you revert now to proper work ethics.
 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.
- I will make your products and services obsolete and replace it with more intuitive and innovative products that is more likely to suit the taste of these days demanding consumers. Your employees, who only cared about money, whom you failed to transform and innovate, will lose their careers but those who knew how to work properly will survive.
 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.
 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.
- Some Companies today are still credible and observe Godliness at work. God honors them. They knew who they are and we knew who they are because they have been providing us products and services that are truly helpful in our lives. They knew not how to deceive people. They simply deliver and their works give people a smile.
 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
 And I will give him the morning star.
- The prize of observing the characters and attitudes of God towards work is to become a Ruler. He who observes these will acquire both the knowledge and might of a virtues governor. You will possess wisdom to resolve conflicts and maintain peace and orderliness in the land.
 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
