1. Charts of the Revelation Storyline

Revelation is not hard to understand if we can keep the timeline straight. Most passages in Revelation belong to a chronological sequence of events, which we call the storyline. We show the storyline in white on the following charts. In addition to the storyline, there are also parenthetical chapters which...

2. The Four Horses of Revelation

Revelation is often thought of as a complicated and hard-to-understand book, but once we understand what we are reading, while the storyline is complex, it is also fairly straightforward. The first key is to realize that each chapter in Revelation belongs either to the chronology of events (which we call...

3. The Great Shaking at Seal Six

When the fifth seal is opened, the souls of the martyrs under Elohim’s throne are told to wait until the number of their fellow servants and brethren (who would be killed as they were) was completed. Hitgalut (Revelation) 6:9-11 9 When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the...

4. The Anti-Messiah’s Temple

After the nuclear war in the Middle East at seal 6, the UN will probably come in and enforce peace. Jerusalem will be made into an international city. The Temple Mount will likely be given to the pope, with orders to establish an interfaith temple with the outer courtyard open...

Continue reading

5. The 144,000 and the Great Multitude

After the nuclear conflict at seal 6, there are 144,000 believers sealed (i.e., protected from harm) from all the tribes of Israel. Hitgalut (Revelation) 7:1-8 1 After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the...

Continue reading

6. The First Four Trumpets

Earlier we showed why there will likely be an engineered nuclear war at seal 6. The purpose of this war is to convince people to support a one world order (and a one world religion), in order to avert further nuclear war. Revelation 8:1 tells us that when seal 7...

7. Trumpets Five and Six

Men do not repent during the first four trumpets. Therefore, Yahweh has to turn up the heat. This is why the last three trumpets (5, 6, and 7) are all described as woes. At trumpet 5, a “star” falls to earth, and is given the key to the bottomless pit....

Continue reading

8. The Two Witnesses

Before we read about the third woe (trumpet 7) and the cup judgments it introduces, we will meet Yahweh’s two witnesses. They minister during all three woes (trumpets 5, 6, and 7). This is also called the time of Jacob’s Trouble. Earlier we saw how the Illuminati is working to...

9. Trumpet 7: The Turning Point

Sadly, many of us will die before we reach trumpet 7. Yet if we make it that far, trumpet 7 is the turning point. That is when Babylon falls, and Yahweh’s government is set up. Although the cup judgments and Armageddon still lie ahead, from this point forward, Yahweh’s kingdom...

10. Revelation 12: Israel in the Wilderness

Chapters 12 through 15 are inset chapters that will give us more information about detailed topic areas. When we rejoin the storyline in chapter 16, we will be able to make better sense of the story. In the opening pages of this book, we give the parable of the pregnant...

11. The Five Beasts of Daniel

As we will see, a beast is a Babylonian empire system. Revelation 13 will introduce us to several beasts which also show up in the book of Daniel. Since it is essential that we know who and what these beasts are, let us take a look at them first in...

12. The Beasts of Revelation 13

In the last chapter we saw how King Nebuchadnezzar dreamed of a statue which represented a series of five empires (Babylon, Medea-Persia, Greece, and Rome), with the final empire being a spiritual one (Christianity and Islam together). Body part: Earthly empire: 1. Head of gold Babylonian (Iraq) 2. Chest and...

Continue reading

13. The Mark and Number of the Beast

In the last chapter we saw a beast (representing Islam and Christianity) coming up from the sea. We also saw a governmental beast (representing the UN) coming up from the land. The UN will tell all those who dwell on the earth (or perhaps all who dwell in the land...

14. The 144,000 and the Grapes of Wrath

Revelation 14 describes three harvests. First comes the harvest of the 144,000 (the firstfruits). Then comes the grain harvest. Finally comes the grape harvest. These latter two harvests may also be the harvest of the great multitude dressed in white (Revelation 19:14). The timing of the harvest of the 144,000...

15. The Cup Judgments

While the seals play out over hundreds of years, and the tribulation takes approximately seven years, the bowls are poured out in about 30 days. We might visualize a fireworks display which starts slowly, builds, and finally peaks in a grand finale at the end. We can also apply the...

16. The Harlot’s Judgment

We can better understand how end time events play out, if we realize that the material world is a reflection of the spiritual world. Things first take place in the spiritual, and then over time they reflect in the natural. To give an analogy, if a war plane is shot...

17. Come Out of Her, My People

Revelation 18:2 tells us that Babylon the great is fallen. As we have learned, this takes place in the heavens at trumpet 7. However, it takes time for this to play out on earth. Babylonian government will slowly fall as the cups are poured out—and then what remains will fall...

Continue reading

18. Armageddon: The Wedding Feast

Earlier we saw that Babylon is judged at trumpet 7, and then her punishments are poured out during the cups. At cup 6, three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouths of the dragon (Satan), the beast (papacy), and the false prophet (Muhammad/Islam). They gather the Babylonian kings...

19. About the Rapture

Scripture does teach the concept of a rapture, but what Scripture teaches is very different from what the popular culture teaches. To know what the rapture truly is (and isn’t), let us study this term, both in Hebrew and in Greek. The popular term is taken from the Greek word...

20. The Ingathering and the Millennium

In Revelation 19, we saw how Yeshua arrives with His army of saints at Armageddon, and then smites the armies of Gog and Magog. Now, in Revelation 20, a messenger (angel) comes down from heaven, binds Satan, and throws him into a bottomless pit for 1,000 years. Hitgalut (Revelation) 20:1-3...

21. The Second War of Gog and Magog

In Revelation 16, Babylon fell, and three unclean spirits like frogs came from the mouths of the dragon (Satan), the beast (the papacy), and the false prophet (Islam). These three spirits then went to marshal all of the armies of the world against Israel at Armageddon. By this we know...

22. The Judgment and the New Earth

In the last chapter we saw that Yeshua comes back to earth at the end of the millennium (about the 7,000 year mark). After He destroys the armies of Gog and Magog a second time, He will take the followers who have fallen asleep since Armageddon (the first war of...

23. The Flock and Her Shepherds

The Revelation story has given us a rich perspective from which we can analyze the trends affecting us today. Yet, to see the big picture and analyze the trends most effectively, let us review from the beginning. As we explain in Nazarene Israel, Adam and Havvah (Eve) fell from Yahweh’s...

24. Avoid the Early Ingathering

There may be what we call the Early Ingathering to the land of Israel. This Early Ingathering will consist of a group of believers who go home too soon who, for one reason or another, mistakenly believe the tribulation is past, and that it is therefore safe to go back...

25. The Dry Bones and the Two Trees

Ezekiel 37 contains two prophecies over the return of the house of Ephraim (Israel). In the first half of Ezekiel 37, the house of Ephraim is revived from a valley of dry bones. (In the following passage, the Hebrew word for breath is the same as the word for spirit....

26. A Restored Islamic Caliphate

Today there is talk of a restored Islamic Caliphate, or an Islamic State (ISIS) in the Middle East. To understand this Islamic State better, let us understand our cousin Ishmael. As we explain in Nazarene Israel, the covenant was to come through Israel. However, Avraham’s other son Ishmael also received...

27. Fear Yahweh, and Him Only

The tribulation is on the way. World leaders are openly advocating a new world order and a one world religion. Yet in all of this, our Elohim tells us not to fear any conspiracy, so long as we fear Him, and Him alone. Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 8:12-13 12 “Do not say,...

28. America, Land of Babylon

In Nazarene Israel we saw how there are Ephraimites in all countries, and yet the United States of America (USA) is the land promised to Joseph’s descendants. Genesis 49:26 tells us that Joseph’s descendants were to occupy the richest of all the lands. However, this land was also to be...
