Revelation 6- 12- Watch a great review of what we have read so far!

At this point, you might be getting anxious reading John's vision or you are getting very confused.  Perhaps, like me, you are excited!!

Through the many times I have read Revelation, I have gone through different teachings and discovered the many different ways people interpret Revelation. There is predominant teaching in our US Christian culture today that became very popular from the Left Behind book series published in 1995.  The thought is that there will be a rapture of believers at an unknown time. With Christians out of the way, all the plagues of the seals, trumpets, and bowls will occur in chronological order in a 7 year period. During that time there will be new converts to Christianity. Christ will then return and rule for 1000 years only to then have to once again engage in battle and finally defeat Satan and Satan's followers.   At the end of the 1000 years will be the judgment of all mankind.

I have had a very hard time with that interpretation of Scripture because it teaches something very different from what the original apostles believed and taught.  So, my search for different schools of thought on Revelation continued.  I have read some interesting books that have helped me form a conclusion that sits right with me in accordance with scripture.

A friend told me about a video she saw that gave a good summary of Revelation. I watched it and was amazed at how well it put into words how I have come to understand the Scriptures.  I simply can not write it as concisely and perfectly as this video clip does, so I thought I would include the link and let you take a look if you so desire.  It is about 12 minutes long.  I would love to hear your thoughts!

I find it sad, very, when people feel the need, want, desire or desperation ( you pick why), to slightly or not so slightly alter the meaning of major points in the books of the Bible, REVELATIONS for one. I’d like to share a Bible teacher ”AMIR TSARFATI “ who’s ministry “BEHOLD ISRAEL” I believe to be vital for devoted Christians to understand and know. To be a strong Christian who believes Gods word is solid, and not have the thinking of this world which wants to yield to make it easier for us to accept and live because they fear Revelations. “The world”, the evil, wants to have all people to just “feel good”, brotherly love and total acceptance of everyone’s lifestyles. Some churches no longer focus on the Bible, on the truths of the Bible, nor speak of our one true Lord God Jesus Christ. It’s simply evil to be “ in the world and accept it and not focused on Jesus and God plan for our future.

The ministry “BEHOLD ISRAEL” with Amir Tsarfati reveals truths to Bible prophecy that is most obviously coming to light now in these current days. We can look for alternative meaning ps to make us feel better about the end times, or we are definitely on the wrong side. Because as Christians, real ones, not lukewarm ones, we have NOTHING to worry and EVERYTHING to gain.
Yes! I agree one can not alter scripture!! Amen, preach it! You are also right that the world has made an attempt to infiltrate the church with the idea that God is all love, taking away the fact that he is just.
I have heard well known speakers even say there is no hell.
Nope, you can't soften that! It's in the Bible and it's real!

All that being said, I couldn't really figure out what your comment was in relation to what I said. Was it in response to the video? Did you disagree with some in that?
