as said, cursed is anyone who hangs on a tree...
what is most intriguing: the whole revelation is so far from the 'end times' theory. as i have stated in other areas, that letter/book opens with: This is the revelation of Yeshua the Anointed aka Jesus Christ not this is the prophecy of the end of man.
why are people -especially believers- so (excuse my pun) hell bent on the end, the destruction and the devil? According to what I have read and believe, lucifer IS defeated. Death, sin and hell have no power anymore...
yes, so i have heard.
but the book reads different.
'Chapter 1 -18' define the need for the removal of sin & death.
midway it mentions the battle in heaven between He and lucifer and the tail sweeping 1/3 of the angels with, yada yada.
the important notation is this:
in 'chapter 21' which was also stated at the last moment of Yeshua mortal life: "It is Done" -it is finished. And proceeds to make mention of a temple not of stone but where Yeshua & the Father dwell, which is the hearts of men. As it is written: the day is coming when you will not worship me on this mountain nor in temples made of stone... true worshipers will worship in Spirit & in Truth.
He also mentions it as the second death, because the first was the curse of the law -which he removed. But death of spirit is to reject the Truth that Yeshua is the Word, he is God.
is it possible people have misinterpreted the book?
one last notation:
David lived 1,000 years before Yeshua came: which was the time of judges. David knew in part the grace we have today.
Luficer was bound for 1000 years during
1. lucifer is defeated
2. the beast -that is immorality, sin
3. the false prophet -the liar that salvation comes through the law.
are all thrown into the lake of fire.
when Yeshua died, he went into hell and set the souls free, took the keys of sin and death away from the devil, destroyed sin and the false prophet, by fulfilling the promise.
it also states that death and hades were also thrown into the lake. Which He proved by rising from the dead.
the next chapter is all about the new. no more temple, no more sacrifice, no more law. It states that now He dwells -again- with man and man with He as it was originally...
very very amazing Truth.
i have read. hence why i stated.
ps, my apologies: Solomon was the last king of Israel, who built the temple. After which there was great prosperity until the kingdom was divided Judah from Israel and the ten remaining tribes had no kingdom.
ps, there is no mention of rapture or tribulation in the book.
according to the book, all these events occur before 'the return or '. all the seals opened by the Lamb, all the trumpets blown, all the bowls poured out.
right after this, the age of judges (rev 20:4) is complete. It states that the SECOND death has no power of them. Which were those from the first resurrection. simply because they had died before Salvation came...
Just after is judgment when dead and hell is destroyed.
Is it safe to say that when he descended, this event occurred and when He rose, he destroyed death and hell, i think so.
the prophecy is at the end of the book, where the newness begins. where the foundation of the new city (not a physical one) are the twelve apostles and no temple because He dwells within us.
for the kingdom of God/heaven is within...
me, being a believer and student of the Word, find the teachers of many ministries to be misinterpreting the truth.

If you read the scriptures, especially the New testament, reference upon reference mention that in time, one day, God will call His children to Himself. So, is that time near, is Revelations going to take place...
