The Bible Believers Guide To Understanding The Book Of Revelation: Pt. 16

The Bible is comprised of 66 books, all equally important and valuable, but the book of Revelation inspires awe, fear and wonderment like no other.

Understanding what you read in Revelation is not the hard part, believing what is written there is.

The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. 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.” Revelation 1:1-3 (KJV)

The Bible is comprised of 66 books, all equally important and valuable, but the book of Revelation inspires awe, fear and wonderment like no other. In it is contained the blueprint by which the God of Abraham will End the Church Age, begin the time of Jacob’s trouble, defend Israel, defeat the Devil, reward the saints and judge the wicked lost before destroying everything by fire and then creating it all brand new in eternity.


On this episode of Rightly Dividing, we take a look at a spectacular event that even a lot of Bible scholars don’t actually believe or fully understand, the Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem. This is when the world enters the longest period of sustain peace it has even known, because Jesus is on the Throne and the Devil is bound.

Understanding what you read in Revelation is not the hard part, believing what is written there is.

  • Do you study the bible and ever wonder about the days listed in Daniel and Revelation?

    Do you study the bible? Are you a student of bible prophecy? Do you ever wonder about the; Number of days noted in Daniel 12? 1260 days, 1290 days, 1335 days? Number of days noted in Revelation 1260 days, 1263.5 days Daniel 9:27 the seven weeks? 1 Corinthians 15:52 The last trump?
    I am bringing this up to show you there is much more to achieve from studying the bible than has been shown you to you till now.
    Remember when studying the bible that every Jot and tittle mean something.
    And in the above case of the days shown, there is more than you can possibly imagine. I was totally dumbfounded when I stumbled on to this. It took the Lord 1 nano second to complete and it took me several years to find all the pieces to this puzzle. This will take some review on your part but when you review this you I promise will be as astounded as I was, and still am.
    TJOB 41 The last seven years;

    The last seven years: You will find this in no other book or prophecy ministry. If you are not knowledgeable about the number seven in the bible go to and read about God’s perfect and completion number. It will open your eyes.

      Here’s a decent correlation of Daniel to Revelation.

      The author shows how the two are interdependent, generalized to specialized, and actually overlapping (where as many interpreters say some are individual prophesies, this author shows how they are not: they are the same, giving more detail).

      Interesting read.

  • Ron

    There are 66 Books In The Bible and I found so amazing that….
    Isaiah has 66 Chapters
    and Chapter 40 Verse 3 Says: The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
    How amazing is it With Respect to Our Savior that the Book of Matthew is The 40th Book in The Bible and that
    Matthew Chapter 3 Verse 3 Says: For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
    No one could have possibly ever could have done that with any Fore Thought except God.

    How Awesome is Our Lord Jesus Christ! AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Ron and the rest of you knuckleheads, you need to get your heads out of your asses and wake up and smell the coffee.

      • Ron

        I noticed you picked on me and it must be because of all the Scripture I quote here is good one for you.
        Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
        I smell the coffee for 42 years now and I drink it all day long straight up.
        So why did you come here anyway, just to tell us we are knucleheads?
        Just so you know our heads are already in Heaven, and we will be leaving you real soon and it won’t be by aliens or mother earth who gets rid of us. God will soon Rapture Us!

    • Gerardo Rivera

      There is a verse in the Bible that completely blows me away that is very easily overlooked, which is Revelation 4:3. It contains such powerful evidences of God’s omniscience and influence in this world in such subtle ways, making us realize ultimately that there is no such thing as coincidence:

      I’ll include the first two verses for context:
      1After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. 2And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. 3And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.

      I read this verse a few times and thought it was pretty cool, but no big deal. Then I heard a pastor expound on it further, sounding much like this.

      So John is seeing the Father on His throne, radiating the colors of jasper and sardine, or sardius as some translations have. Do you get it? You don’t get it.

      Look, in Genesis, Jacob/Israel had two wives. Leah, the wife that was not preferred, brought forth a first-born son, naming him Ruben, which literally means “Look/Behold, a son!”, almost as if taking a jab at the preferred wife. Meanwhile, Rachel, the preferred wife, was unable to bring forth children for quite some time, but eventually had two sons. She died giving birth to her second son, what she called Ben-oni (Son of my Sorrow), but Jacob/Israel renamed him to Benjamin (Son of my Right Hand). Do you get it? You still don’t get it!

      Look, in Exodus 28, Moses is instructed by God to make the ephod and breastplate for the high priest to wear. Particularly, verses 28:15-21, the artisans are to make a breastplate and set 12 different stones into it, each stone representing the 12 tribes of Israel. Without going into too much detail about the other stones, Sardius represents the tribe of Ruben and is the first stone to appear. Jasper is the last stone, which represents Benjamin. Do you get it? You still don’t get it.

      Look, John was brought into Heaven and is seeing the Father on His throne in all his glory. Rather than the Father speaking to him, he just radiates colors, particularly the colors of sardine/sardius and jasper. The Father is radiating Sardius and Jasper, which represent Ruben and Benjamin. In other words, the Father is radiating the colors of Ruben and Benjamin. In other words, the Father radiates the colors of Behold, a Son and the Son of my Right Hand. In other words, the Father radiates the colors of Behold the Son at my Right Hand! Who is the Son at the Right Hand of the Father?!

      insert brains being blown apart if you know the answer. Through Genesis and Revelation, there are many different authors, but all were inspired by the same Holy Spirit, thus this seems like coincidence to us, but God has orchestrated this all along. He knows the end from the beginning.

      May this inspire you to trust in the all-powerful, all-knowing God, the creator of the universe who sent His Son to die for our sins so those who believe may enjoy Him for eternity!

      • Ron

        And that particular info is a benefit to us in what way?
        Since you seem to be so condescending in saying….
        Do you get it? You still don’t get it!
        I just pointed out an interesting numerical fact which some may have known or not known.
        I didn’t say after I wrote it….

        Do you get it? You still don’t get it!

        • Lonnie

          He was quoting a pastor. It is extremely easy to see that he copied that entire text from that sermon. He even separated it so you could tell that’s what he did.

          • Ron

            Lonnie I do understand that, but what benefit is Geology to me as it pertains to the Scriptures is what I am asking him since he is making some big deal of it.
            I mean let me show you something symbolic. A Oyster gets and irritation and starts covering it with Nacre to form a Beautiful Pearl and The gates of New Jerusalem are made of giant Pearls which makes sense for we shall enter in and out of those doors, though we were the irritation to Jesus Christ He covered Us in His Righteousness to make us into something Beautiful.
            See now The Pearls and the gate make sense, but his example teaches me nothing.
            I mean if you know what is meant by it tell me because he sure hasn’t
            Blessings Lonnie!

          • Gerardo Rivera

            As Lonnie stated, I was paraphrasing a pastor named Chris Swansen of Calvary Chapel, Chester Springs. His teachings and sermons are very good, very detailed verse-by-verse studies. The web site for the church can be found here:


            The point I was getting at is that the Bible is a masterful work, able to use events that seem insignificant in the lives of people, and show that even the seemingly-insignificant can give God incredible glory in the eyes of His children. Who would have thought the jealousy and bitterness between two sisters nearly 4000 years ago (close to 2000 years, more like around 1800 years before Revelation) to show such a symbolism that glorifies the Son of God? That really encourages me, as even the most insignificant events in my life are noted by God, and who knows how He may use something that seemed small to transform lives and give Himself the glory!

            He also covered a thorough teaching on the tabernacle, as revealed to Moses. Amazing how Moses was shown the vision of the tabernacle and not revealed to anyone else, just Moses given the instruction to certain individuals of wisdom and skill in that part of the tabernacle, yet when it was completed, Moses was astonished to see that it looked EXACTLY like the one God shown him in the vision. Anyway, I like how Chris Swansen summarizes the tabernacle, stating something like this:

            The tabernacle, when viewed from the outside, looks like a large shabby tent made of skins, certainly nothing to be desired of it just by looking at it. Yet, it contains the Ark of the Covenant, a symbol of God, wrapped in purple, which symbolizes kingly royalty. And what does the Gospels say? God tabernacled among men. He looked like a regular, unimpressive man, yet stated that he was the Son of God, as well as a king.

            Once again, events that don’t seem to tell us much at the time, point to an amazing truth thousands of years later. The tabernacle is an amazing structure that references God and Jesus in almost every item used.

            So much is contained in the Bible. It is the Word of God which encourages, instructs us, and warns us. And if you only find parts of this useful to your walk, eat the meat and spit out the bones. I have met many brothers and sister who tell me verses that I find of little use, yet they revolve their lives around it, as it is usually tied to a verse that has brought them to salvation. May you be blessed.

    This whole idea of a “Millennial Reign” of Christ is one of the worst teachings/twistings of the Bible ever invented by man.

    Rev 19 never says this thousand years is the kingdom promised to Israel.
    The Old Testament never says one time – not once – that the kingdom is 1000 years long. On the contrary, it says the reign of Messiah is “forever” and “forever and ever”. Allllll you self-righteous pre-trib dispensationalist fundies who drone on and on about taking the Bible “literally”, blow it there. You say “forever” is actually “1000 years”.
    Rev 19 never says once that there will be a 1000 year long reign of Christ on earth. It says the martyrs reign WITH CHRIST a thousand years.
    It doesn’t matter how many times “a thousand” is said in Rev 19. It is either literal or it isn’t.
    Rev 19 never once says that Satan causes people to sin, so when he is bound, sin will go away. PEOPLE sin because PEOPLE are sinners. We don’t sin because “the devil makes us do it.” LIE LIE LIE.
    The church is never mentioned here in Rev 19. So why do dispensationalist fundies insist that’s when WE reign? I thought that whenever the church isn’t mentioned in Revelation, that means it has nothing to do with the church??? Ooopsie.
    Why do self-righteous pre-trib dispensationalist fundies go on and on about “a thousand years is a thousand years!!!” and then turn right around and say that “shortly come to pass” in Rev 1:1 isn’t exactly what it says????? I thought God had a totally different view of time. I thought “a thousand years is one day and one day is a thousand years”! Ooopsie again.
    To say that God is going to turn back time and create a new temple in the millennium with sacrifices ignores a ton of New Testament and teaches that the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ really meant nothing. BLASPHEMY!
    Ezekiel never teaches that the temple described there will be built during the kingdom at the end of time, or during a thousand year time period, or during some time of peace and quasi-perfection.

    I could go on and on with this. Terrible, awful teaching that needs to be put down.
