Christ’s closing words :

(w/ totally corrupted)
[2021-08aug.23/24]

 
  [short introduction will follow]

 
[total lines : 17]
 
fulltext :
                                                                                                [introduction line – as KJV Rev. 21:9]
9.
then I am being brought back to where I was ,
and I see my Lord Jesus standing before me ,
and He speaks with me , saying :
6.                                                                                                                                   [next : KJV Rev. 22]
these events which you were shown
are according to the words of God in the scroll of the prophets ;
saying : when the souls will understand My words which I have spoken ,               +
7.
my Son will come (-to earth) swiftly ;                         [see : ‘widow and judge’ parable]
therefore , blessed be the ones having understood                                [<< as the 144]
the sayings [=lines] of God in the scroll of the prophets ;         
8-9.                                                           
          [=needed in part II]                                                                                 [next : reason why :]
15. (!)
because the Scribes and the Pharisees                             [15 : see notes at Greek text]
have corrupted the sayings [=lines] ,
for they love evil and practice falsehood ;            [15: Esau’s doublet in KJV 21:8-a]
10. (!)
then He says to me :
also the sayings of the prophecies in THIS scroll will be sealed [=or: corrupted] ,
until the season [=or: ‘endtime’ ?] will be near ;                          [<< kairos=eschatos?]
11.
and becáuse of the unrighteous one [=KJV version]
will have become unrighteousness ,                         [11a-c : ‘mystery of lawlessness’]
for many will not know the right belief ;
but by the righteous one [=restored version] will become righteousness ,
by those having understood the right belief ;
12.
and when I will come (-to earth) I will take those ,                                [<< the 144,000]
for my reward will be with me ,
to pay each of those according to their works ;
13.                                                                     [13-14 : in the doublet in KJV 21:6-7 Esau left
I am the Son of God ,                                  a “he that will overcome + God + be a son” !]
who is the beginning and the end ,     
the first and the last :
14.
blessed be the ones doing His desire ,                                        [<< read : restore words]
because He will make those
(to be-) the sons and daughters of God ;                                                     [<< the 144,000]
          [possible :]
         when their souls will be brought to His (holy) mountain

16.
I Jesus will send my words [=these chapters]
as my testimony unto the churches ;           +
16b.
          [deleted : nonsense]
17.                                                                                                               [17 : attested in prophets :]
yet it will be the crushed souls who will say :
we will need to examine whát He has said ,           [d : Esau’s doublet in KJV 21:6-b]
because we are thirsting ;
and the ones desiring to understand , will lay hold of the words of [eden-] life ,
and will nót thirst anymore ;
18.
because I testify that those having understood                [<< as the 144,000 group]
the words of prophecy in this scroll ,
God will impose [=give] unto them
the promises (!) which are written in this scroll ;         +
                                                                 [next : but those rejécting the restored version … :]
19.                                                                                                                                       [see Greek text]
but if anyone will rejéct
the restored words of prophecy in this scroll ,
then …
                      [we don’t want to write what could happen with them]
as the disasters which are written in this scroll ;
                                                                                           [closing : … but Jacob will be restored :]
8. (!)
but all the souls nót having seen ,
nor (even have-) heared about the restored words of this scroll ,
I will save from the world        +
when the seventh angel will have blown his trumpet ;
9. (!)
then God will restore their soul in her servant [=Original] ,         [or: in His people]
and they will see your [=John’s] brethren ,
and the prophets ,
and all those having kept the testimony of Me ;                            [9 : see 7th trumpet]
and everyone will worship God ;
20. (!)
then I John who witnessed all these things which He spoke , say :
so be it ; may you return quickly , Lord Jesus ! ;
21.
the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with all of you .

 

BREAKDOWN
 
closing of this book

below line : we need an introduction line , first :
… because the first 5 lines of KJV 22 belong to the theme of prévious chapter
(of which 2 lines are corrupt)
we have as option either KJV 21:9 or 21:10  —
because both of those make the text run ‘unnaturally’ yet 10 is the most cohesive ,
while – after the eden chapter – it makes little sense that the “vial angel” appears ,
we opted to use line 9 here :
2.
… the situation returns to the start of revelation – where Christ speaks with John ;
we thought it is better “.. to where I was” as “to my home” or something :

                                                                                                                                       [KJV Rev. 21:9]

                                                                                                                                            [KJV Rev. 22]
below section :
… we needed to rephrase this section ‘to become the introduction’ to part II :

6
[..3x..]                                                                  [the ‘saying to me’ was already in previous line]
b
these – [..] sayings=events – faithful=which (pistos=hos)[..] true=you (were) shown
c

d

e

f
[+when] the – angel=souls – [..] (will) show=understand – him=My – slaves=words
g                          (aggelos=psychê)                                                                                    (doulois=logos)   
   

which – [+I] must=(have) spoken ,
h
[..2x..]   [unusable]                                              [see also : “the widow and the judge” parable]
7

b
[+therefore] , blessed (be) – the (-ones) – (having) keep=understood
c
the – sayings [=’lines’][..] (of-) prophecy=God – (in-) the – scroll – (of the-) this=prophets ;

8-9  [needed in part II]

A jump : context :

15
… because Christ starts in line 10 about “a scroll being sealed” , we need a reason now ,
also ,
because now a comparison will be made what God has said and what Christ says
(though the themes are – ofcourse – the same) ,
and line 10 is about to say : “just like Gods words have been changed , also mine will” :
we searched in bóth KJV chapters
and the only one fitting is this , rather Weird , 15 :
KJV :
             “but the dogs are outside , and sorcerers , and whoremongers ,
             and the murderers , and the idolaters ,
             and everyone loving and doing falsehood.”
                                                                        [the somewhat double of 15 : KJV 21:8-a]
15
[=because] – [..] the – dogs=scribes – and – the – sorcerers=pharisees
b                                                                                                         (pharmakos=pharisaios !)
[..] (have) murderers=corrupted – [..] the – idolaters=sayings [=’lines’] ,
c                   (phoneus=aphanizô !)                         (eidólolatrés=ereô)
and=for – [+they] love – everyone=evil – and – practice – falsehood ;     
                                                        (pas=phaulos)

now : we often saw how lines as this triggered Esau into a tantrum ,
and compare KJV lines 18 and 19 :
Esau corrupted those two “as payback” for this line 15 ! ;
eventhough , as we said in a log ,
Christ must have very carefully chosen his words ,
to not give ‘too much’ opportunity to Esau ,
He HAD to point out that ‘much was corrupted’ …. ! , there was no choice !

 
10
[=then] – He says – (to-) me :
b
no=also – the – sayings [=’lines’] – (of-) the – prophecies – [+in] [..] THIS – scroll
c
(will be) sealed [=’or : corrupted’] ,
d
that=until – the –season [=’or : endtime’?] – (will) be – near ;
                             (kairos=eschatos?)

 
below 11 :
… this line should refer to “the mystery of lawlessness” … ;
because the theme now is “the (-end) time
11
[+and] – (becáuse of-) the – unrighteous (-one) [=’KJV version’]  +  [<< per 10b-c]
b
still=(will have) become (eti=esti) – unrighteousness [=’or : ‘lawlessness’] ,
c
and=for – [+many] (will) the=not – filthy=know – (the-) still=right – filthy=belief ;
d
and=but – (by-) the – righteous (-one) [=’correct version’]          +
e
still=(will) become – righteousness ,
f
and=by – the=those – (having) holy=understood – (the-) still=right – holy=belief ;

12
and – behold=when – I (will) come (-to earth) – I (will) swiftly=take [+those] ,
b
and=for – my – reward – (will be-) with – me ,                           [12 : the 144,000]
c
to pay – each (-of those) – according to – him=their – works – [..1x..] ;        +

below 13 :
… the ‘alpha and omega’ just sounds suspicious , as ‘made up’ ,
while the phrase “the beginning and the end”
is said several times by God – in Isaiah chapters :
we opt that this line is an introduction to the next theme
as explaining the promise in above 12 :

              [13 : similar ‘alpha and omega’ line in KJV 21:6 ,
              (followed by “water of life freely” – as misplaced line) ,
              but in line 7 there “he that overcometh + God + son” ! ]

 

13
I – am – the – alpha=Son – and=of – [..] omega=God ,
b                           (alpha=yhios)                             (o=theos)
(..+who..) (is) – (the-) beginning – and – (the-) end ,
c
the – first – and – the – last :                                                [b-c : Isaiah chapters]
14
blessed (be) – the (-ones) – doing – [..] His [=God’s]directions=desire ,
–                                                                                                                         (entolê=thelô !)
[desire = understanding scripture]

b
because (-than) – [+He] (will) have=make [+these]         +
c
(to be) the – right=sons – [..] on=and – [..] wood=daughters – [..] (of-) life=God ;
d
[possible :]

and=when – [+their] gates=souls (pulón=psychê)        +
e
(will be) come=brought – unto – [+His] – [holy-] city=mountain (polis=oros) (?) ;

 

part II

below 16 : KJV line is most questionable :
… probably co-corrupted with the – equally Vague – KJV 17 :
1.
what is ‘the bride’ — the church ? ; and why should she say ‘come’ ? ,
the whole point is that He returns IF SHE WILL UNDERSTÁND the scrolls
(see also Parables) ;
2.
the ‘root of David’ : corrupt and nonrelevant ;
3.
the ‘morningstar’ is definitely corrupt (is hieroglyph NETER-T’UAI) ,
and cannot be crossread in scripture ;
 
16
I – Jesus – (will) send – [..] my – angel=words [=’as these chapters’]         +
b                                                                   (aggelos=logos)
[+as] you=my – testimony – [..] in=unto – the – churches ;         +
c-d
[deleted : nonsense]                                              [17 : attested in prophets]
17
[=yet] – (it) the=(will) be (to=esti) – the – bride=crushed – spirit=souls
b
(who-) (will) say :
c
you=we (will) come=need – [..] to hear=examine – [+whát] him=He (has) said ,
d                       (erchomai=chrezô)   (akouó=anakrinô)
come=because – [..] [+we] (are) thirsting ;
e
[lineup :]

[+and] the (-ones) desiring – to come=understand         +
f
(will) lay hold of – (the-) water=words – (of-) [eden-] life  
g
[possible , to complete the juxta :]                         [f : Esau’s doublet in KJV 21:6-b]

[+and] – (will) (..+nót..) – freely=thirst (dórean=dipsaó) [-anymore] ; 

 
below 18 :
… considered the direction in which the text is heading now ,
it is defendable that at this point a promise can follow
also because previous 17 would require ‘a proper closing theme :
… are we glad that we MISTRUSTED these lines !
(see the “Esau’s rage” note at line 15) ;
 
18
because – I testify (-that) – every=those – (having) hear=understood        +
b
the – words – [..] (of-) prophecy – [..] (-in) this – scroll ,
c
[..5x..]                                                             [corrupt : ‘if – any – add – to – these’]
d
[..] God – (will) impose [=’give’] – unto – him=them        +
e
the – plagues=promises (!) (plégé=epangelma !)        +                          [sic !]
f
the=which (are) – written – in – this – scroll ;

 
                                                           next : but those rejécting the restored version … :

below 19 : very tricky case :
… because Esau used a double juxtaposition in above 18 ,
he also needed one in next 19  –
but because we have only 1 juxtaposition now ,
line 19 cóuld be “about souls who reject the restored version” :
this theme appears in prophets , in Paul’s letters and in the Parables ,
and
is always “about those who willingly reject the restored version”
(so this is not about ‘believers in general’ as Jacob : see closing section) :
2 .
… note how Esau meddled with the lineup : ‘words + book + prophets’ here ;
 
19
[=but] – if – anyone – (will) take away=rejéct (aphaireó=apodokimazô)      +
b
[lineup :]

(the-) from=restored – [..] words – [..] (of-) =prophecy – [..] (in-) this – =scroll ,
c
[+then] …..
                           [we don’t want to write what could happen with them]
d
[+as] – the – holy=disasters – and=which – [..] (are) written – in – this – scroll ;

 

closing                                                                                                 … but Jacob will be restored :

this section :
… KJV has (only) 2 – very short – closinglines ,
but above line 19 (-and 18) screams for a .. próper ending :
one group is lacking , still : Jacob ,
and here come KJV lines 8 and 9 in play  —
which are , incredibly , the same type corruption as in KJV 19:10 ,
as the ‘seventh trumpet’ page – where all of Jacob is restored :

 
8 (!)
a
[=but] – I=all – (the-) john=souls – the=nót – (having) seen – [..1x..] ,
b
and=nor – (having) heared          +
c
and=about – (the-) look=restored – when=words – (of-) and=this – hear=scroll ,
d
I (will) fall=save – (from the-) worship=world (?) (proskuneó=kosmos?)      +
e
before=when – the – feet=seventh – [..] angel       +
f
[..] (will have) showing=blown – [..] [+his] – things=trumpet ;

 
9 (!)
[=then] – me=God (égo=theos) – (will) says=restore         +
b
[+their] see=soul – on=in – you=her – servant [=’Original’] ,     [or : in His people]
c
[+and] – I=they (will) am=see – [..] your [=’Johns’] – brethren ,
d
[+and] the – prophets ,                                              [c-e : so every saved-soul in history]
e
and – (all-) those – (having) kept – the – words=testimony – [..] (of-) book=Me ;
f
[+and] – this=everyone – (will) worship – [..] God ;

 
below 2 – short – lines :
… now we have a proper ending ,
the question is what can be the most logical said here :

 

20 (!)
a
[restored + lineup :]                                                        [20-a : ‘I John’ : restored from 8-a]

[+then] – (..+I..) – (..+John..) – (..+who..) – witnessed           +
b
(all-) these (-things) – yea=which – [=He] come=spoke , say :
c
so be it ; [..] (may) you return – (..+quickly..) – Lord – Jesus ! ;

 
21
the – grace – [..] (of-) our – Lord – Jesus – Christ – (be) with – all – (of-) you .
