the ‘seven churches’ explained         [2021]

(and the themes may surprise you !)

 

in short : the build-up of the main theme :

… don’t worry – virtually all words remained ;
but a solid context showed forth now ,
differing much from the usual explanations ;
it is important to first understand the buildup
in order to can recognize the themes properly
(=same method we use by prophets) , see next :

             (friendshiptours com)

 

Ephesus
… the first Christianity (at Rome) ,
as the people who ‘experienced the other Reality’
but that awareness slowly became Lost ;
(start : 0 AD)

the progressive degrading
of our reality
Smyrna
… the Medieval times ,
believers now ‘focus upon this earth again’,
therefore the world is darkening more and more ;
(start : 400 AD)
Pergamos
… this era starts with the Reformation ,
the world is now called “throne of the adversary”
and the believers are warned
to translate and understand all of scripture well :
or the adversary will go dwéll upon his throne ;
(start : 1500 AD)
Thyatira
… the adversary dwells upon his throne
because he installed his ‘matrix-consciousness’
which trapped millions of believers : in the sense
that none accepts ‘the other Reality’ anymore
(except the sons (you and we!) who dó accept it) ;
X (— until OUR DAYS)
 
the total degraded reality
in OUR DAYS
but also the turning-point
Philadelphia
… the candidates for the 144,000 are selected ,
as the óther ones to complete the 144 number
(as a process going on RIGHT NOW) ;
main theme here is “dying to the own Self” ;

X

(TODAY)
 
start of the restoration
towards the other Reality
Laodicea
… start of the Tribulation ,
and the many believers are left behind upon earth ;
Christ says “that he loves them (‘ofcourse ! , hR’) ,
but they themselves have chosen this ordeal —
yet he will save them after their physical death
 
(ANY DAY NOW)

 

earth ceases
paradise (re-) begins

 
validity of the above :

  • a) one may have expected some “seven rather equal timeframes” ,
    yet from the end of Thyatira until Laodicea are but a few literal years :     
  • b) the reason for that is ,
    when the sons will awaken , events will happen in breakneck-speed
    (exactly as declared in the prophets) ;
  • c)  Thyatira IS already situated in ‘our days’ (see text) ,
    or perhaps better phrased , “the second section of Thyatira is” ;

    the theme of ‘evil desiring to completely rule this earth’ : 
    … God tells in prophets “how he protects the dimensional-border
    so that them spirits will not devour the souls – which they are eager to do”,
    but that the souls themsélves open the door for them (to go do that) ;
    hence we used the phrase “progressive degrading reality”
    up to the point when God will NOT protect that border anymore ;  

 

 

the seven churches : verse-by-verse context :

 

Ephesus ,

     main theme : the first Christianity :                                                                    (around 0-300 AD)

  • line 2 ,
    mentioning “their toil and endurance”, and how they opposed
    false teachings about their belief ;
  • line 3 ,
    (for reasons below , it must write) :
    “and – you (have) to bear         +
    (..persecution..) – for the sake of – the name – of me” ; 
                          [<< G1375 diógmos]
    first because that was an important aspect in that time ,
    but also because syntax of (original) interl. and presented interl. differ ,
    showing something is wrong (and see roots as hupomonEn used twice in 2+3) ;  
  • line 4 ,
    now comes the “but , …” ;
    this “first love” can only be “the other reality” ! ,
    in that time was really “a supernatural outpouring”, and many did not even mind
    being put to death (see Foxe’s “book of martyrs”) ;
    but as the years passed on , and “the return of the Lord” didn’t happen ,
    christians started to focus on earth again – as the theme of the first 4 churches ! ;    
  • line 5 ,
    explaining previous line ;
  • line 6 ,
    to their good , “they hate the teachings of the Nicolaitans” (=’spirits’) ,
    and this theme will return in another church (-era) ;
  • line 7 ,
    who repents , is promised “to may eat from the tree of life”,
    becáuse so many of them were executed
    (and this line shows the same time “the other reality” they fell from) ;

 

Smyrna ,

main theme : the medieval period :                                                               (until 1500-1600 AD)
etymology : said as ‘myrrh’ from a hebrew root ;
the negative connotation (of that root -mer) is ‘bitter’ ,
and in prophets used as “focusing upon this world” :
note how the same theme progresses negatively since Ephesus ;
  • line 8 ,
    that Christ mentions he is “the one who was dead but lives”
    may point the the half-magickal world the people lived in , without scripture
    and filled with quasi-spiritual relics they had to worship ;
  • line 9 ,
    continues that theme – the ‘synagogue’ is (in prophets) related to Esau ,
    who púshed the people into his created quasi-mystical world ;
    note how it writes “of the adversary” (not: of Satan) ,
    because this adversary will show to be ‘a certain concept’ ;
  • line 10 ,
    the “adversary will throw them in jail for 10 days (=centuries)”;
    and ‘jail’ is a rather good description of the middle ages :
    nothing is asked from them but only “to hold on” ;

 

Pergamos ,

main theme : the era starting with the Reformation :           (1500AD – to óur days)
etymology of Pergamos is unclear
but “altar, pillar, base, built-up foundation” seem proper , concerning the theme ;
  • line 12 ,
    starting immediately with “the two-edged sword” (as God’s word) ,
  • line 13 ,
    this world has become so degraded now (read : devoid of God’s awareness)
    that it is termed “the throne of the adversary (=this earth)” ,
    yet the people still believe in Christ                                    (“you do not reject the belief”) ;           
    13b :
    next , the theme must be “scripture – as the scrolls (of prophets)”, as ‘Antipas’,
    which is the ONLY “witness (of me)” but which “was destroyed” (‘murdered’) ,
    namely by that same Synagogue mentioned previously ;
    and
    the scroll was destroyed to be the throne where the adversary WILL DWELL” ;
  • line 14 ,
    now the explanation / warning :
    as “(..because..). I have. against. you. ,       +
         (..that..). [..] you keep. the teaching. of Balaam. who. (was) directed. [+by] Balak.   +
         (who) casted. a snare. before. the children. of Ishral (=’today’s believers’).                 +
         [in order for them-] to absorb. idolatrous things. and. commit prostitution. ;
           
    in prophets ,
    the “committing prostitution” is said about “believers who (only) accept the Gospel”
    and are not Interested in what God – through prophets – has said          +
    about His other reality of which he wants souls to go search that again ;
  • line 15 ,
    but it’s too late : “they kéep the teachings of the Nicolaitans (=’spirits’)” already 
    (namely : to make this earth unprotected against them) ;
    Christ addresses here the corrupt KJV – concerning its prophet’s chapters ;
  • line 16 ,
    has a corruption :
    must be , “repent !. , [3x deleted]. then. I (will) come. to you. swiftly.      +
    and. fight. against. them (=’spirits-teachings’). with. the. sword. of [the]. my – mouth.”;

    this is the same concept in prophets where God explains to us
    “your soul will see the right words (in the scroll)  – if she listens to me” ;
  • Line 17 ,
    the “who will overcome I will give the hidden manna” as ‘the right doctrine’ ,
    as having understood WHAT prophets said about the other Reality ;
    line 17b :
    keywords here are “stone”, “written”, “not know (=secret)” and “giving” :
    because the theme of Pergamos is about “reading the scroll right” ,
    the “(eden-) cornerstone must be declared (by souls) through reading the right way”
    (just as prophets also ask to declare a number of óther concepts) ;
    this would explain ‘the stone given to the sons’ ;

 
Thyatira                                                                                                                         (as turning-point)

main theme : the totally ruling matrix-consciousness in OUR days :
(see full breakdown of Thyatira at end of page)
… the theme of ‘the other Reality’ has become completely hidden
(save for some vague ideas about ‘Heaven’) ; because today most christians
are  LIVING the matrix-mindset which was caused by the previous eras ;
main theme :
Jezebel (‘the whore – representing the notion of “the Gospel only”) totally rules ,
and this consciousness of ‘the Gospel mixed with science and individualism’
caused that VERY few believers still would accept what God said in prophets ;
but :
the sons (yes: you and we!) “who understóod the depths of the adversary (=Jezebel)
(namely : the present ruling matrix-consciousness) WILL ESCAPE) ;
(full text : see end of page) ;

 
(Rev.3)

Sardis

main theme : the (other) candidates for the 144,000 all over the world ;                  (THESE DAYS)       the etymology of Sardis is difficult to establish    —
it is said to mean “escaped few” or “remnant” but that is not a lógical one :
instead , the ‘sardius stone’ makes more sense because of the wealth of that trading city ;
the ‘trading’ :
remember the wedding-parable “go and find the poor because my house will be full”
(and see logs from 3 weeks ago how this may have started !) , while ‘the candidates’
themsélves can be representing “the gemstones” – and compare the text :
  • line 1 and 2 :
    1.  “I know your works , that you have a name that you live (=’being a christian’) ,     +
         yet you are dead (=’inside !’) ;

    2. “be. alert. and (do). [+NOT]. strengthen. the things. that remain.     +
         which. are intended. (!) to die.  (+for I have not found your work complete)”
    :
    interpretation :
    these both lines are about “dying to the Self” (and to this body) ;
    being the condition for the (other) candidates for the 144,000 ;
  • line 3 ,
    3. “remember what you received and heared”,     +                                                            [<< visions , likely !]
         “and hold fast (-to them) , and repent (=’from resisting to die to the Self’) ,
         (+or the day of IEUE will come upon you like a thief)” ;
                                                        [<< paraphrased]
    interpretation :
    in prophets “the latter rain” is said as “visions given to the candidates for the 144,000”,
    and see how here no other action is required of them but only “not to resist” ;
  • line 4 ,
    4. “yet. sardius. contains. a number of. names                                   (=’belonging to the final 144,000’)  +
         who. (have) nót. polluted. their – garment                                       (=’acting agáinst their Original !’) ;
         therefore. they (will) walk. with. me. in. white                               (=‘they will have their Original’)     +
         because. they (=’now belonging to the 144,000’) – (are) worthy.” ;

    interpretation :
    these souls have nót resisted the “dying to their Self” and became sweet souls ,
    worthy to be reinstated , restored , to their Original eden-body ;
  • line 5 ,
    5. “the one. overcoming. (will) therefore. (be) clothed. in. [+his] white – garment
        (=’confirming the”receiving the Original” theme’) ;

    5b repeats “I will confess his name before my father” as the theme in prophets
    of “Josiah (=’the 144,000’) standing before God , Miss and Christ ,
    as Josiah receiving his new garment” ;

 

Philadelphia ,

main theme : the 144,000 actually escape earth :                                       (ANY DAY NOW)
per the phrase ‘the opened door’, and the sons are intended because of
mentioning the term “David”, as the type rule in eden ;
  • line 8 ,
    the “you have little strength” refers again ‘to the stripped soul’ , see Sardis ,
    and thereby “you have kept my word”        (=only the stripped soul can read proper) ,
    where the “kept words” are likely “all the references Christ made to the other reality
    in many things he said” (including this Rev. 2 and 3) ,
    and thérefore they “have not denied my name”  :
    as understanding the reason WHY Christ did his work – to bring eden back ;
  • line 9 ,
    is – surprisingly – a bit difficult : the ‘Synagogue’ relates to “corrupt translations”,
    but here perhaps in general ‘during the time the 144,000 will witness upon earth’ ;  +
  • line 10 ,
    a corruption : must be “because. you kept. the word. [of] the. [..father..]. of me ,
    (+ I will keep you from the hour of trial) ;

    it never happens that God nor Christ tells something superfluous as repeating line 8 ,
    and “because you kept the enduring word of me” just sounds strange ,
    just as “you kept the word as the remnant (‘sons’) of me”- if hypó-méno is -méno ;
    while the theme of “the trial upon the earth” is factually “the day of IEUE” ;
  • line 11 ,
    the expression “hold fast what you acquired” was also used by Thyatira ,
    as “everything you have learned so far”; adding “because it is any day now” ;
  • line 12 ,
    the “I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God”
    is described in prophets as “the 144,000 will be the priests in my house” ;
    we don’t (-yet) get the reason for the “3 written names”,
    while nowhere in prophets is mentioned “new jerusalem coming down”
    (prophets tell how the sons will rebuild eden) , so we leave that now ;

 
Laodicea ,                                                                                                                            (ANY DAY NOW)

main theme : the many souls staying behind upon this now Dark earth :
etymology ,
from (-laos) ‘people’ and (-dike) ‘justice’ ; in positive form as “the right people”
but can read as well “judgment over the people” here ;
  • line 14 ,
    immediately “a new beginning” is mentioned ,  
    explained as “the beginning of the creation of God” (=eden) ;
    next line 15 is scarey :
    describing a type now zombified souls , not capable of anything ,
    while 16 describes the judgment ;
  • line 17 ,
    is explained whý they find themselves upon a dark earth now :
    as “because. you (have) said                                                              (=’up until earth went dark’)
    I am – rich                                                                                                 (=’because I accepted Christ’)
    and. I (will even be) more rich                                                      (=’in heaven’)
    and. (there is) no. requirement. I (need to) pursue. ,                   
    [<< but compare Sardis]
    (..but..). you (did) not – realize. that. you. were. wretched. and. miserable. ,
    and [therefore-]. [+would become]. poor. and. blind. and. naked.”         
    [<< in the Trib]
    the above interpretation
    is completely in line with many prophet chapters :
    they use the term “payback”, as Christ who paid for our sin (=’this body’) ,
    the sons who paid ‘by having understood prophets’ ,
    and Jacob will ‘pay’… by physical death ;
  • line 18 ,
    the “refining” is always “a judgment in order to be purified” in prophets ,
    note how “naked” and “eye-salve” return here (therefore 17b is correct) ;
    the ‘garments’ refer again to ‘the Originals’ ;
  • line 19 + 20 ,
    the situation is now “almost halfway Revelation”     —
    the “repent” (in 19) is the time of the two witnesses (as 144,000) ,
    as the time the many souls will renew their oath to God ;
    in line 20 further explained as “I will stand at the door”
    (perhaps envisioned as ‘dimensionally’ – since earth is dark now) ;
  • line 21 + 22 ,
    closing of the seven churches theme
