Revelation 19:9, "Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” If Christians are the bride, then who are the guests?

Throughout the gospel age, two classes are being developed that will receive a spirit resurrection in heaven. The first is the bride class, also referred to as “the little flock,” “the faithful,” “the wise virgins,” “the body of Christ,” “the spiritual house,” and “144,000.” (Revelation 21:9; Luke 12:32; Revelation 17:14; Matthew 25:8-10; Ephesians 1:22, 23; [...]

When is the Revelation going to happen?

The Revelation of Jesus Christ (Revelation 1:1), given to the Apostle John, was a symbolic vision using “signs” (verse 1). These symbols are the rule, and literal interpretations are the exception.  When Jesus answered his disciples in Matthew 24 regarding his “parousia” (presence, mistranslated “coming”) and the end of the age, he also used symbols: [...]

Explain the book of Revelation 11.

Remember that Revelation is a symbolic book. The word “signified” in Revelation 1:1 means putting the message in signs, pictures. Verse 1: The church class is the temple of God. (1 Corinthians 3:16).

In Revelation 6:2-8, what do the four horse colors mean?

God’s four attributes (or characteristics) appear in Revelation 4:6-9.  They should not be called “beasts.” The accurate translation is “living ones.” These four living ones seem to directly relate to the four colored horses.  The horses symbolize the wrong application of God’s attributes.  ​ The “four living ones” are found in Ezekiel 1:5,10; 10:14 -  [...]

In Revelation 20, when the devil is released for a little season, and the rest of the dead are raised, who are the rest of the dead?

Revelation 20:4-6 (New English Version) reads: “ 4 Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the [...]

Please compare Revelation 22 verse two with Psalm 1 verses one through three.

Revelation 22:2 describes “the tree of life” with 12 fruits yielded monthly and with healing leaves.  This scene represents a future time when all mankind will be revived to life because of Jesus’ all-atoning sacrifice.  People, if willing, will grow in righteousness, after they are resurrected.  The river water symbolizes blessings of truth, from the [...]

If the second death is non-existence, please explain Revelation 21 verse 8.

Revelation 21:8 (ESV), “But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” All mankind are not dying as a result of their own sins. All people [...]
