Pamphlet 1921 Rev. kc 56-2
But as it is written, the "learned", the PhD's, the seminary graduates, the professors of theologies and philosophies, who should teach our people the visions and the words of the prophecies of this book do not understand it, and we shall learn why from great prophet Isaiah!
Rev. 22:10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
Of course if you listen
to what many preachers and ministers tell their people,
who blindly trust in them to show them the truth of God's Word,
saying that they don't need to understand the Book of Revelation,
then this is how they present Rev. 1:1 "The Secret and Sealed Sayings of Jesus Christ,
which God gave unto him, to hide from His servants things which must shortly come to pass;".
A sealed revelation?
I think not!
as it is written, the "learned", the PhD's, the seminary graduates,
the professors of theologies and philosophies,
who should teach our people the visions
and the words of the prophecies of this book do not understand it,
and we shall learn why from great prophet Isaiah!
And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed:
 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.
Now here's the reason they cannot SEE and cannot HEAR the words of the prophecies of this book.
 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
Why do they not know Him and why will He say "I never knew you" (Mat. 7:23)?
The answer is given in the last phrase of verse 13.
all they are taught about Him is taught BY THE PRECEPT OF MEN,
the traditions of men.
They are not taught line
by line and chapter by chapter
the wonderful words and the wonderful works of God.
so contrary to the traditions of men,
the Book of Revelation is OPEN and UNSEALED for all who will seek Him.
And so we are all without excuse.
And so will "action" be taken, or will the "status quo" remain just that?
Rev. 22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
since we must all give account for our own actions,
what you do about what is written is completely up to you.
you want to remain unjust, have at it!
If you want to remain spiritually filthy, go for it.
remember that our Father has given all of us a choice
and He so desires that we choose to love Him.
The following verse from Deuteronomy says it all:
Therefore know this:Deut. 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
(No, we're not talking about salvation which is a free gift from God.
But if a person wants some rewards they better have some righteous works.)
Here are Christ's own
words which we remember from verse 6 are "true and faithful",
which means there's no doubt whatsoever that they are going to come to pass.
Rev. 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
We read these very words in the 8th verse of the beginning chapter of this book.
Now with only 8 verses to go we read them again.
in between them we have been given the special
and honored privilege of SEEING behind the veil
the "things which must shortly come to pass" as revealed by Jesus Christ Himself.Click here to see our Book of Revelation pamphlets Table of Contents
But even so we are now
reminded in this verse
that He is still the same as from the beginning
and that His message is still the same and knowledge alone isn't enough.
We must take action and be "doers", not just hearers.
How fitting the next verse
spoken by He who the apostle Paul
tells us in Hebrews 13:8 never changes:
"Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever", the Alpha and Omega.
 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
But what about those who choose Plan B?
 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
we are back in 96 A.D.,
not in the eternity where the fate of those listed in verse 15 will have been fulfilled.
Do you remember from chapter 21 verse 8 what their fate is?
Rev. 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars,shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
Deut. 30:19. Choose one of the following:
Plan A: Life and Blessings
Plan B: Death and Cursings
Rev. 22:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
Or are they teaching you that you will fly away when these events occur?
Or are they busy teaching you how to be a good Christian by giving to this charity and that missionary?
And speaking about the
Jesus reminds us that He is the One who holds the Key of David
that the Church of Philadelphia uses to unlock and bring forth the testimony of which He just spoke.
there are only two out the seven churches (Rev.
2:9 & 3:9)
that Jesus found no fault with, Smyrna and Philadelphia.
The rest are busy with their traditions!
And remember He also said
while addressing those churches
that He has something special for those who overcome:
Rev. 2:28 "And I will give him the morning star."
Jesus is that bright and morning star.
you can choose to follow Plan B and fall with the wrong-star,
the son of the morning.
Isaiah 14:12 "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!.."
Rev. 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
And if you have "ears to hear" then you are also to say "Come", take action.
if you thirst for the hearing of the Word of God during this time of the
great famine (Amos 8:11),
then come and hear what saith the Spirit and the bride and those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.
And anyone who is willing, anyone at all, of any race, of any gender, of any sect or creed, may take freely of the water of life.
The choice is yours.
There is neither fee nor tax.
Christ continues in summation:
 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
You'll be sure to get your reward.
 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
You'll be sure to get your reward.
Now for the Revelation of the 7th and final solemn warning by our Lord and Savior that He shall return:
 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
