Nobody has mentioned the true Olive tree; the Jews. God did not assimilate the original people of His heart into the Gentile Bride. According to Revelation symbolism, much of which typifies The Jews, the Millenial reign will be the climax of their jealousy. Believers are given the mandate to stir them to jealousy and a desire for the Messiah they ...

What Revelation 1:1 describes is God the Father giving God the Son His permission to now reveal to us what is to come. It does not mean that Jesus did not know what these events were. This is the nature of the Godhead, the Son rejoices to do the will of the Father, though He is equal with the Father (Philippians 2:6). Similarly, the Holy Spirit does not ...

Justin Martyr (c. 100 – 165 AD, Dial. c. Trypho, cxx. 14, 15), who wrote before Irenaeus, mentions the Martyrdom of Isaiah, an earlier Christian writing with an apocalypse section (chapter 4). In it the author ties together the writings of Paul, Daniel, the Gospels and Revelation with the Belial/Beliar tradition to describe an evil antichrist type ruler. 1 ...

Mark 13:32 However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows. The basic understanding, coming from an Trinitarian perspective, is that Jesus was fully God and fully man, both. Yet, all that He did on the Earth, He did as a man, and not "as" God. That ...

Reading the new testament texts within a systematic eschatology, readers could conceivably equate the 'antichrist' of the Johannine epistles with either of the beasts from the Revelation, or the 'man of lawlessness' from Paul, but this is purely reader inference; such connections are not made explicit within these individual texts (e.g. the author of 1 John ...

St. Victorinus, an ecclesiastical writer and a Church Father who flourished about 270, and who suffered martyrdom probably in 303 under Diocletian, in his Commentary on the Apocalypse, identifies the Antichrist with one of the seven heads of the red dragon [cf. Rev 12:3]. From the Twelfth Chapter And there appeared another sign in heaven; and ...

It was John the Revelator–the same who authored The Revelation–but he doesn't say it in The Revelation. "Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; [...] *Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ?* He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son." ...

Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. We do know that Jesus did not have all of the knowledge of the Father. Philippians 2:6-7 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a ...

Why does it appear that Jesus at some time did not know what God knew concerning the little details of the last days? I don't see how this verse could be read as implying this: nothing in it suggests that Jesus didn't know the revelation that God (the father) gave him before he was given it. I'd interpret this verse as saying that the revelations that ...

Actually the answer is very simple. The confusion lays in the meaning of the word "revelation". It can be taken as "disclosure of earlier not known truths" which was to John for sure BUT it can by understood as "portion of facts and doctrines" which God the Father decided to reveal to humanity and passed it on through Jesus to John. In that sense it was NOT ...

Catholic Perspective cf. Endtimes, Millennium, Rapture | EWTN The Catechism provides us with a general order of events at the End [CCC 673-677]. Chronologically they are, the full number of the Gentiles come into the Church the "full inclusion of the Jews in the Messiah's salvation, in the wake of the full number of the Gentiles" (#2 will ...

First of all, it's important to understand that the Catholic Church does not believe that there has been, nor will be, any new public revelation from God since the Ascension of Jesus; Jesus was "God's Last Word", the full and perfect Word of God. (Perhaps this is what you meant by saying "the Catholic Church believes that there is no direct revelation from ...

the resurrection is like an harvest all the crop is not reap at once, but at different intervals. So it is with the resurrection of the dead Christ is the first fruit unto the lord Lev 23, 1cor 15:20-23, with a space of approx. 2000 years next will follow the church with old testament saints 1Tess4, 1cor 15 51-56, Phi3:20-21, job19:23-27.
