List of Scriptures & Biblical Principles to Understand Revelation & the Entire Bible
➥ 1) "Blessings" from God come to those who "Read," "Hear" & "Keep" the words of Revelation. (Rev 1:3)
➥ 2) God's Words will be fulfilled! (Isa 55:11, Matt 5:18, 24:35, Jer 1:11-12)
➥ 3) God's Interpretation Vs Man's - According to Genesis 40:8, "Interpretations Belong to God!" (Gen 40:8)
All true Interpretations of Revelation are only found in & defined by God's words as Scripture Interprets Scripture (Psa 119:105, 1 Cor 14:32, Daniel 9:2, 2 Tim 3:15, 16-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21)
God's Words are the path to life, lite and survival. Deut 8:3, Matt 4:4, Prov 2:6, 30:5, Psa 119:114, John 17:17
In contrast, Trusting in Man's words, interpretation or thinking is foolish, brings Curses & Death (Prov 18:2-3, 28:26 Luke 6:39, Isa 2:22, Psa 146:3, Psa 118:8, 2 Peter 1:19-21, Jer 17:5-8)
God's Words Contrasted with the words of Lying Prophets Jeremiah 23:16-40, Jer 23:17, 18, 21-22, 28-29
➥ 4) Scriptures Direct us to the Prophets of the Bible to understand End Times. (2 Pet 1:19-21, Rev 10:7, Matt 24:15, 1 Cor 14:32, Rom 15:4) Qualities Daniel was praised for: Daniel 9:2, 10:12.
➥ 5) Deadly consequences for those who "add" or "take away" from any of the words in Revelation. (Rev 22:18-19 also Deut 4:2, 12:32, Prov 30:5-6
➥ 6) Revelation is a Repeat! Find the source of Revelation & you will not only find God's Interpretation, but also the "MEAT in DUE SEASON," Yashua (Jesus) spoke of at Matthew 24:45-47 for each Seal, Trumpet & Vial. (Luke 12:42-44, Rev 10:7, 1 Cor 14:32, Matt 24:15, 2 Pet 1:19-21)
➥ 7) Must be "Boreans" & "Test" & "Prove" everything! (Acts 17:11, 1 John 4:1 & 1 Thess 5:21) We should "Contend for the Faith" (Jude 3) delivered by Yeshua and the Apostles and not the "Another Gospel" (Gal 1:8) handed down by the State of Rome & the Catholic Church which is the origins of doctrine for modern Twistianity (Christianity).
➥ 8) Context is critical! At Matthew 4:6, when tempting Jesus, the Devil quoted Psalms 91:11-12 but took the scripture out of context giving it a different meaning. This warping is unfortunately common among most Christians who will quote scripture without knowledge of the context. This leaves the door open wide for a different meaning.
Read Revelation, learn what is says, learn the Language or vocabulary, the 123's and the ABC's. Once you know what it says, you will see the Language of Revelation Everywhere in the Scriptures and especially in the Old Testament.
Not only does Revelation comes from the Old Testament, it is also where believers find the rest of the story or all the additional details of Revelation. Revelation takes all the Old Testament writings and arranges them into a Grand Climax of Jesus' Second Coming, the 1,000 year Reign and after!
YHWH Promises"Blessings" to those who "Read," "Hear" & "Keep" the words of Revelation. (Rev 1:3) The more one Reads Revelation & takes it to heart, the more they will be able to recognize it's Language throughout the scriptures making them clearer and clearer.
Jeremiah Chapter 23 is a fantastic example and contrast of God's Words vs man's words!
16 This is what the Lord Almighty says:
“Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you;
they fill you with false hopes.
They speak visions from their own minds,
not from the mouth of the Lord.
17 They keep saying to those who despise me,
‘The Lord says: You will have peace.’
And to all who follow the stubbornness of their hearts
they say, ‘No harm will come to you.’
18 But which of them has stood in the council of the Lord to see or to hear his word?
Who has listened and heard his word?
19 See, the storm of the Lord
will burst out in wrath,
a whirlwind swirling down
on the heads of the wicked.
20 The anger of the Lord will not turn back
until he fully accomplishes
the purposes of his heart.
In days to come
you will understand it clearly.
21 I did not send these prophets,
yet they have run with their message;
I did not speak to them,
yet they have prophesied.
22 But if they had stood in my council,
they would have proclaimed my words to my people
and would have turned them from their evil ways
and from their evil deeds.
23 “Am I only a God nearby,”
declares the Lord,
“and not a God far away?
24 Who can hide in secret places
so that I cannot see them?”
declares the Lord.
“Do not I fill heaven and earth?”
declares the Lord.
25 “I have heard what the prophets say who prophesy lies in my name.
They say, ‘I had a dream!I had a dream!’
26 How long will this continue in the hearts of these lying prophets,
who prophesy the delusions of their own minds?
27 They think the dreams they tell one another will make my people forget my name,
just as their ancestors forgot my name through Baal worship.
28 Let the prophet who has a dream recount the dream,
but let the one who has my word speak it faithfully.
For what has straw to do with grain?” declares the Lord.
29 “Is not my word like fire,” declares the Lord, “and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?
30 “Therefore,” declares the Lord, “I am against the prophets who steal from one another words supposedly from me. 31 Yes,” declares the Lord, “I am against the prophets who wag their own tongues and yet declare, ‘The Lord declares.’ 32 Indeed, I am against those who prophesy false dreams,” declares the Lord.
“They tell them and lead my people astray with their reckless lies,
yet I did not send or appoint them. They do not benefit these people in the least,” declares the Lord.
33 “When these people, or a prophet or a priest, ask you,
‘What is the message from the Lord?’
say to them, ‘What message? I will forsake you, declares the Lord.’
34 If a prophet or a priest or anyone else claims,
‘This is a message from the Lord,’ I will punish them and their household.
35 This is what each of you keeps saying to your friends and other Israelites:
‘What is the Lord’s answer?’ or ‘What has the Lord spoken?’
36 But you must not mention ‘a message from the Lord’ again, because each one’s word becomes their own message. So you distort the words of the living God, the Lord Almighty, our God.
37 This is what you keep saying to a prophet: ‘What is the Lord’s answer to you?’ or ‘What has the Lord spoken?’ 38 Although you claim, ‘This is a message from the Lord,’ this is what the Lord says:
You used the words, ‘This is a message from the Lord,’ even though I told you that you must not claim, ‘This is a message from the Lord.’39 Therefore, I will surely forget you and cast you out of my presence along with the city I gave to you and your ancestors. 40 I will bring on you everlasting disgrace—everlasting shame that will not be forgotten.”
