THE END-TIME ELECT'S KEYS (The Key Of David) TO UNDERSTANDING THE BOOK OF REVELATION...Part1
1/8/17 A Sermon by: Pastor John W. Thompson-Smyrna
I John the Elder here at Smyrna do in Spirit call you all back unto remembrance in our Yahshua Messiah's Name, Amen...?
These very personal letters from Yahveh are just for us us if we are to be as promised protected if we repent!
The book is two parts, chapters 2-10 is introduction or overview. Chapters 11-19 is the main events in full explanation. 3. Yahshua appears to return twice, in chapter 10 and 19, but 19 is His actual (defacto) return. The third woe in chapter 9 is Yahshua’s return. 4. The seals of chapter 8-9 are the same as the bowl plagues in 12-16, only more intense. 5. The woman in chapter 12 is Judah, not all the body. Matthew 24, she flees to the mountains. 6. The Great City in chapters 17 and 18, Jerusalem which is called the whore, is ground zero! 7. Chapters seven and eleven go together to explain the Two Witnesses. 8. The bulk of the tribulation is in the Mediterranean sea area. 9. True believers who are dedicated and obedient will be protected by Yahshua. It is written, one is taken and the other one left (Luke 17:34- 38). This is not the Christian rapture idea!
THE BOOK OF REVELATION THE UNFOLDING THE INTRODUCTION Revelation 1:1-20
The Revelation of Yahshua the Messiah, which Elohim gave unto him, to show unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: 2 Who bare record of the word of Elohim, and of the testimony of Yahshua the Messiah, and of all things that he saw. 3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. 4 John to the seven assemblies which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from Yahveh which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; 5 And from Yahshua the Messiah, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 6 And hath made us kings and priests unto Elohim and his Father; to him be honour and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. 8 I am Aleph and Tav, the beginning and the ending, saith Yahveh El, which is, and which was, and which is to come, Shaddai. 9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Yahshua the Messiah, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of Elohim, and for the testimony of Yahshua the Messiah. 10 I was in the Spirit on the Master's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Aleph and Tav, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book.
THIS IS THE TESTIMONY OF JOHN BY YAHSHUA THE HIGH PRIEST The whole book is preparation for Him taking His throne in Jerusalem. WARNING: OBEY THE WORDS! Judgment starts at the house of Yahveh first.
LETTERS TO ALL BELIEVERS FOR THEN AND FOR NOW. YAHSHUA IS THE SEVENTH SPIRIT THE 7th TRUMP, THE 3rd THIRD WOE. 2,000,000,000 persons will die during the tribulation. 2,000,000,000 persons will die at His coming. MARK 13:26; MATT. 26:64 PROCLAIMED 4 TIMES ONLY IN REVELATIONS TO IDENTIFY HIM BECAUSE HE IS THE ALEPH AND THE TAV. YAHSHUA AKA THE ALMIGHTY THIS IS THE KINGDOM MESSAGE SABBATH [SATURDAY] One of the Spiritual Marks of Yahveh
*HE COMES AT THE LAST TRUMP IN TRIBULATION. THE SEVENTH TRUMP IS YAHSHUA THE KING. REV. 10:7, 19:9-19 Revelation 10:7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of Elohim should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets [picture of His coming, but the actual coming is Revelation 19]. YAHSHUA IS THE FIRST AND THE LAST! 3 and send it unto the seven assemblies which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. 12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girded about the paps with a golden girdle. 14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. 17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: 18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of the grave and of death. 19 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter; 20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven assemblies: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven assemblies. YAHSHUA IS THE SEVENTH AND CENTER OF THE MENORAH. HE IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD! *THE MIGHTY ANGEL OF REVELATION 10:1=YAHSHUA THIS IS NOT THE SAME ONE ON A HORSE IN THE SEALS OF REVELATION 6! THE ONE IN CHAPTER 6 IS THE MAN OF SIN. =YAHSHUA ALL THINGS ARE IN HIS HAND.
He is the Head of the Assembly, the body of Messiah. [Not Yahveh] THE END TIME OF DANIEL 12 Dan 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. 10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. See summary pages at end of chapter 3.
4 THE LETTERS THE ASSEMBLY OF EPHESUS Revelation 2:1-7 1 Unto the angel of the assembly of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; 2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: 3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. 4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. 5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. 6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. 7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the assemblies; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of Elohim.
THE ASSEMBLY OF SMYRNA Revelation 2:8-11 8 And unto the angel of the assembly in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; 9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, but thou art rich and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. 10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. 11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the assemblies; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death. THE ASSEMBLY OF NO LOVE Most groups do not follow Him! They follow Yahveh. He threatens to take His spirit and light from them. This is the worst of all the Assembly criticisms! They do not really love Him. THEY LOVE FALSE DOCTRINES AND HATE THE TRUTH THEY DO NOT HAVE THE LOVE OF YAHSHUA. They had the love. They love only the word and doctrine. They have become academic believers, who do not follow Yahshua. Their first love is not Yahshua. THEY HATE THE DOCTRINE OF THE NICOLAITANS (LORDING POWER OVER THE FLOCK) AS WORLDWIDE CHURCH OF GOD. THEY WERE BEING PERSECUTED BY THE JEWS. IN THE END TIME WE ARE PERSECUTED BY THE ADL AND CULT AWARENESS GROUP WHO TURNED ON WACO. =YAHSHUA IS THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY REVELATION 19:10 THE SPIRIT=YAHSHUA
5 THE ASSEMBLY OF PERGAMOS Revelation 2:12-17 12 And to the angel of the assembly in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; 13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth. 14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. 15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. 16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. 17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the assemblies; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
THE ASSEMBLY OF THYATIRA Revelation 2:18-29 18 And unto the angel of the assembly in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of Elohim, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; 19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. 20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because you allow that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. 21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. 22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. HAVE HIS TRUE NAME AND FAITH TEACHING FOR PROFIT 2 Peter 2:15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; [SEE 1 PETER 5:1—FILTHY LUCRE]. Revelation 2:14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. HAVE SPIRIT AND GOOD WORKS Spirit of Jezebel to usurp male leadership. To go a wrong way in doctrine and worship. A Pastor can have a Jezebel wife who controls behind the scenes. THIS ASSEMBLY WILL GO INTO THE TRIBULATION UNTIL THEY REPENT. AND ACCEPT YAHSHUA AS THEIR HEADSHIP. THOSE WHO FOLLOW HER EVIL. 6 23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the assemblies shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. 24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden. 25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. 26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: 27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. 28 And I will give him the morning star. 29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the assemblies.
CHAPTER 3 THE ASSEMBLY OF SARDIS Revelation 3:1-6 1 And unto the angel of the assembly in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of Elohim, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. 2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before Elohim. 3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. 4 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. 5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. 6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the assemblies. =YAHSHUA HE WILL ACCEPT THE OTHERS WITH NO MORE CRITICISM OR CONDEMNATION WILL MAKE THEM KINGS & PRIESTS =YAHSHUA 7 SPIRITS=FULL POWER OF THE SPIRIT SPIRITUALLY DEAD, NO POWER, NO REVELATION OR INSPIRATION. THESE PEOPLE ARE DEAD ALSO, BUT THEY STAY ANYWAY! WILL NOT KNOW OR SEE HIS COMING AS THE WICKED BLIND. 1 THESSALONIANS 5:2-3 STILL IN THE LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE Some are alive, most are dead. Half of all baptized people in Yahshua will not make it. Matthew 25 Half of the so-called believers will not make it. [Yahvists]
THE ASSEMBLY OF PHILADELPHIA Revelation 3:7-13 7 And to the angel of the assembly in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; 8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. 9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my Elohim, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my Elohim, and the name of the city of my Elohim, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my Elohim: and I will write upon him my new name. 13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the assemblies.
THE ASSEMBLY OF LAODICEA Revelation 3:14-18 14 And unto the angel of the assembly of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of Elohim; 15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would that thou were cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; THE ASSEMBLY OF LOVE *THE KEY OF DAVID IS A PERSONAL, INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP WITH YAHSHUA. Only with a personal relationship with Yahshua can you grow spiritually, and be converted. The true New Testament Assembly. They have the Name, power, truth and doing the whole work. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers and cast out demons. Jews want them to go to the Talmud—the work of Satan. THEY WILL NOT BE PERSECUTED OR TRIED BEYOND ENDURANCE. A WARNING TO DO AND LOVE GREAT REWARD OF LEADERSHIP BASIS OF YAH IS LOVE SEALED IN THEIR FOREHEADS THEIR CITY WILL BE YAHRUSALEM YAHSHUA WILL GET A NEW NAME PRIDEFUL! NEED NOTHING!
GREATLY DECEIVED ABOUT HOW THEY ARE DOING! They do not know Yahshua. Ambivalent and unmotivated, deceived. Will not receive instruction. TAKE THEIR NAMES OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE. 8 and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. AUTHORITY TO CORRECT 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. HE IS KNOCKING AT THEIR HEART 20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. REMINDER OF GREAT REWARD 21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. HE DOES NOT CALL EVERYONE 22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the assemblies. They do not need Yahshua or love Him. They are in darkness. See Matthew 11 BUY FROM ME TRUTH PUT ON RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT YOUR SIN MAY BE COVERED. OPEN YOUR SPIRITUAL EYES. YOU MAY SEE AND HEAR IF WE RECEIVE NOT THE CORRECTION, WE ARE NOT HIS CHILDREN. YAHSHUA CORRECTS ASSEMBLIES.
HE IS CALLING TO THE PROUD.
THERE IS A PLACE FOR THEM. HE OPENS THEIR EARS AND EYES.
In Yahshua's Service:
