The twelfth chapter of the Revelation is showing in the symbols the circumstances of the end of the Gospel age, that is the end of choice of complete Christ, Head and Body. This choice was pictured as the "man birth." The "birth" was accompanied in the external scene by the political activity of atheistic socialist powers ruling the whole eastern block. The chapter reveals, how Satan manipulated this power in his efforts of thwarting of the Divine plan of the ending of choice of the Church of Christ. In addition the chapter shows the final history of the remainder of the true Church on the earth. The main part of the work of testimony about second presence of Jesus Christ and given by Him "food in due season" happened in United States in years 1874-1914. Complementary prophesying took place in Poland in years 1977-1981. Here also, on the base of the Scripture's chronological premises was announced the understanding of the fact of the end of heavenly High Calling. Moreover also in Poland, in most great number were represented those students of Bible, who were believing in the fact of still opened door of High Calling, also after the year 1914. (1) And ...more

(1) And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and one said, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. (2) And the court which is without the temple leave without, and measure it not; for it hath been given unto the nations: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. The reed ... a rod … Origin of reed – aquatic plant; the water – symbol of Truth. Rod – symbol of authority.

THERE SHALL BE DELAY NO LONGER   (1) And I saw another strong angel coming down out of heaven, arrayed with a cloud; and the rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire; (2) and he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left upon the earth; Strong angel coming down out of heaven … The vision of the angel approaching towards the earth is the general illustration of the Jesus Christ activity, when He is becoming involved in the matters of the world because his second presence had began. Our Lord said the world will not see him more, that is why the vision can have the exclusively symbolic character. (John 14:19.) When Son of God faithfully fulfilled his sacrificial mission, Heavenly Father rewarded him with divine immortal nature on such level of the glory, which tops glory of all other creatures in the universe. The small flash of it blinded the apostle Paul immediately and overthrew him to the ground. Therefore full of majesty a picture of our Lord in the vision does not concern to the appearance ...more

The second Woe   (12) The first Woe is past: behold, there come yet two Woes hereafter. (13) And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the horns of the golden altar which is before God, (14) one saying to the sixth angel that had one trumpet, Loose the four angels that are bound at the great river Euphrates. (15) And the four angels were loosed, that had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, that they should kill the third part of men. The second Woe represents the farther development of the revolutionary movement as a result of the outbreak of the Second World War. From then on the situation was unfolding in accordance with God's Plan based on sacrifice of Jesus Christ (gold altar). That is why from here the directive to loose of four angels went out.     ✽ ✽ ✽   ✽ ✽ ✽   "The battleship 'Schlezwig-Holstein,' training ship of Kriegsmarine, arrived to Gdansk on 25 August under the pretext of a courtesy visit.

Woe, Woe, Woe   (8:13) And I saw, and I heard an eagle, flying in mid heaven, saying with a great voice, Woe, woe, woe, for them that dwell on the earth, by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, who are yet to sound. God's people, staying in the background of occurring historical events heading to a critical moment inevitably, they fulfilled their mission as the long-sighted "eagle," flying in the middle of the ecclesiastical heaven. (Luke 17:37). This mission, intensified particularly in the last several years before first world war, it was an announcing the approaching the end of the Times of Gentiles, and coming three "woes" – war, revolution and anarchy. (1 Kgs. 19:11,12.) Immediately after this event there was to come longed-for Kingdom of Jesus Christ.       Briefly after the outbreak of the First World War the New York newspaper "The World" reported (August 30, 1914): "The outbreak of the horrible war in Europe has fulfilled unusual prophecy. During the last quarter of a century the International Bible Students Association, more known as the people of 'Millennial Dawn,' had announced the world by their preachers' mouth and by printed matters, that in year 1914 would begin ...more

The blowing the trumpet seven angels   (8:6) And the seven angels that had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.         Blowing the trumpet seven angels represents the development of the revolutionary movement – the bolshevism. (Rev. 8:2.) Four first of blowing the trumpet portray organization, planning, manifestation and the growth of the revolutionary movement. It was the preparation of the revolutionary masses with the propaganda of four Congresses of the RSDLP to attack on the bastions of Christianity as soon as the Times of the Pagans are expired (1914). Three remaining of blowing the trumpet – woes, they relate to the three phases of the fall of Christianity in war, revolution and anarchy as a result of the farther advancing of the revolutionary movement. (Rev. 8:12, 13) Before the outbreak of the First World War (the first "woe") the five congresses of the RSDLP took place (RSDLP is short for: Social Democratic Party Workers of Russia). The resolutions of the consecutive Congresses were reaching masses ears as the mission of the freedom, as the sounds of battle horns calling the people out to the final battle against the oppression of tyrants. The vision of the Revelation in such the way just portrays these events. The ...more

Half-an-hour's silence in heaven   (1) And when he opened the seventh seal, there followed a silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. In the general meaning, the present symbolic heaven represents the ecclesiastical power of the nominal church. That heaven is already being removed and replaced through the third heaven of elevated Christ, Head and Body. During the Gospel Age in this religious heaven, among nominal believers were also present true people of God. "God (…) raised us up with him [Christ Jesus], and made us to sit with him in the heavenly [places]." (Eph. 2:4-6.) Symbolic John or, class of John, was seized in the day of Christ second presence, and he was given a privilege of watching from the Divine viewpoint an activity and experiences of God's people in this period. What represents the half-an-hour's silence on the tiny scrap of the religious heaven, where the saints of God resided? Parable of our Lord about the paying of penny (gr. denarius; Matt. 20:1-16) represents disseminating of the Truth among the nations during His second presence (gr. parousia), from dawn of it (1874) to manifesting of it (gr. epifaneia – 1981).

Two classes of the Church of the Firstborn   Seventh thousand of the years of the history of the world is the period of the second invisible presence of Christ (gr. parousia), intended for the work of the restitution of the mankind. Parousia possesses two phases, preliminary part and principal part. The preliminary phase is closing now with "a time of trouble" and a bounding of Satan.         During the preliminary phase takes place the Divine judgment over all nations and the overthrow of systems of this world, especially corrupted Christianity, Great Babylon. During farther part of Millennial time entire mankind will stand on individual trial. This trial will include both the people that survived anarchy, and the people that will arise from the graves. Under the rule of justice and love, every member of human race, restored first fully to mental health, will freely decide, what he prefer: either the good and possibility of eternal life or evil, resulting in eternal second death. Answer on the "cry of souls underneath the altar" (chapter sixth) explains reason of long waiting for the God's intervention and overthrow of Satan kingdom. Full number of "church of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven" was this reason (Heb. ...more

FOUR RIDERS   Vision of the Ruler of universe in chapter 4 showed, round the throne, four all-seeing creatures, which represent God's four attributes: Justice, Power, Love and Wisdom. The man, who was created in God's image, and after his likeness, was equipped in the same attributes in human sizes. A such unity of thoughts and feelings with his Creator provided him with peace and safety and let to joy fully with happiness of his existence. As result of transgression of our first parents, these all attributes began rapidly to degenerate. Not to this degree however they declined so that the man wouldn't felt the bitterly in his unfortunate situation. The breakthrough in such human misery took place then, when the due time came and God permitted not farther reign of blatant injustice caused with human selfishness. From then on, a noble individuals stirred themselves to desperate attempt of establishing on the earth of the system of equality and justice. They were followed by others enthusiasts, until the gigantic revolutionary communist movement of social equalization came into being. Unfortunately, without God. The chapter sixth of Revelation shows the realization of this attempt as consecutive gallop of four riders, mounting horses of various coats, white, ...more

The Ransom of Jesus Christ the only rescue for the mankind   The human drama began in the Paradise, when first parents, in spite of knowledge of fatal results, violated the Divine prohibition and reached out for a forbidden fruit. In this way they brought the death sentence on themselves and their offspring. The punishment seems to be drastic, disproportionately high to the transgression. We have to take however into consideration the absolute human perfection of our parents. We are only the shreds of the such intellect, the moral feeling and the physical beauty, which Adam and Eve fully possessed. God created Adam in his own image and the likeness, in a single act, and He described his work as "very good." The Scripture clearly declares that "Adam was not beguiled" (1 Tim. 2:14) therefore breaking the law by first man was deliberate act. The theory of evolution about gradual development of man from lower existence forms into higher makes the Apostles a fools, because they taught about restitution of mankind. "Restitution" is translated from two biblical Greek words: "apokatastasis” (Acts 3:21) and "paliggenesia." (Matt. 19:28.) They clearly assure us, that man will return to the primitive state. To what first condition would ...more

John is being snatched away to the third heaven   The book of the Revelation is the fullest prophetic description of God's Kingdom on the earth established in so-called the Day of the Lord. The restoration of mankind to the lost paradise and harmony with God is the aim of millennial rules our Lord in his Day. Scripture teaches about three worlds. "The world to come" began with the second presence of Jesus Christ, named also the Day of the Lord. Organization of every of these worlds is presented in Bible as symbolic heavens (ruling powers) and symbolic earth (ruled societies).       The first heavens and earth were before the flood; the second, this present evil world and its ruling powers (first and second are under Satan); the third, the new heavens and earth, wherein dwells righteousness. The third will be under the rule of Christ and his saints. It is during this latter that all the glorious promises of peace and prosperity will be fulfilled. This dispensation of the kingdom of God is symbolically termed a new heavens (government) and new earth (subjects) in contradistinction from the heavens and earth which now are, "the present evil world," or order of things. As the powers ...more

The church of Laodicea   (3:14) And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God: (15) I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. (16) So because thou art lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spew thee out of my mouth.       Laodicea means: "a tried or judged people," or "justice for the people." The church upon whom the hour of trial is coming; the one that is to be weighed in the balance and found wanting; the generation who are to stumble, as did the generation of Jews, who saw the first advent.

The church of Sardis   (1) And to the angel of the church in Sardis write: These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars: I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and thou art dead. (2) Be thou watchful, and establish the things that remain, which were ready to die: for I have found no works of thine perfected before my God. (3) Remember therefore how thou hast received and didst hear; and keep [it], and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. The line of demarcation of the fourth and fifth church, to the Reformation, is not clearly drawn, the change from the one to the other being a gradual work. Sardis includes a short interval just before the great Reformation of the sixteenth century, at a time when true piety had been almost exterminated. So long without the light, the Bible hardly ever seen, living almost entirely by tradition and memory of what the Christian church should be, no wonder they were almost spiritually dead.

The letters to seven churches   The seven churches in Asia, to which John Apostle directed his letters, they represent seven periods of the development of Christ's Church. It is believed, among others, that these churches happened the addressees of letters because of the name of cities in which they were. They were localities of inferior meaning, but their names were meaningful and reflected the character of the experiences of every one from seven periods of Church during the Gospel age.     During these periods it lasted so-called High Calling, that is took place the choice of the Church of Christ, 144 000 members of his Bride. The participants of this calling were subjected to various trials, with the aim of development of the suitable character and the proving of their usefulness to the future service. That service will be work of the Restitution of mankind under rules of the Lord Christ. To balance the fiery character of these tests, letter to every period ends some promise connected with the future glory of the divine immortal nature. (1 Pet. 1:4.) It was promise of the eternal life in heaven, in the distinction from the eternal life of all people restored to the earthly paradise. ...more

The seventh seal is opened     Author of the series six volumes of the Studies in the Scripture, C.T. Russell, said in 1916 (Q645:3): "There are certain things in Revelation which I do not understand, and for this reason I do not write the Seventh Volume." All these "certain things" were the unknown pieces for the dozens years. They from necessity had to stay not filled until the time of opening of the seventh seal.   The secrets hidden under this seal in symbolic visions could not earlier be read, until the Divine time came and have occurred the events on which these visions pointed out. Since the end of the Times of the Gentiles (1914) took place many unusual events. Two world wars shook the world, everywhere various revolutions multiplied. In result of World War II many of nations reached independence. Chosen nation of Israel also received its own state. God's people saw all these things, but they did not know, how to harmonize these events with the prophecies of Bible, except they had the general conviction, that this happens in the second presence of Christ.   That situation changed however, when, just before time of the manifestation of Lord’s presence (gr. epifaneia), the Lamb ...more

THE TENTH PLAGUE – DEATH OF THE FIRST-BORN Exodus 10:11,12     "And Jehovah said unto Moses, Yet one plague more will I bring upon Pharaoh, and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go hence (...)

And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there hath not been, nor shall be any more (...) But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that Jehovah doth make a distinction between the Egyptians and Israel (...)

And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days; they saw not one another, neither rose any one from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings (...) But Jehovah hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he would not let them go. And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to thyself, see my face no more; for in the day thou seest my face thou shalt die. And Moses said, Thou hast spoken well.

INTRODUCTION   The whole history of the Old Testament, especially the history of Israel contains many events, feasts, ceremonies and special persons, which, under the supervision of Providence, have formed readable illustrations, figures, types and so-called shadows possessing their reference to the larger reality of the Gospel age and the Millennium age. For example, the Apostle Paul stated that our ancestor Adam is the type of the second Adam that is our Lord. (Rom. 5:14.) Adam and his wife Eve gave us the life (though they also it wasted), whereas his anti-type, the second Adam and the second Eve (the exalted Church), they will restore the whole human race back to the life. The Apostle explains also the Divine way of showing the future by the "special technique" of casting the shadow, calling the feasts and the sacrifices of the Law the shadows or types, not the reality (Heb. 10:1; Col. 2:17). The streams of supernatural light, being somewhere in the distance, shedding on the reality of the Gospel age and the Millennium age, they formed their shadows, vague contours in the past ages. The circumstances of the liberation of the Israeli nation from Egypt also painted splendid pictorial scenery consisting of individual figures, ...more

INTRODUCTION   The run of ten Egyptian plagues in result of which the Israeli nation got the freedom, they are the splendid illustration of turbulent changes, which take place in the today's world with their joyful end, when whole mankind shall be delivered from the bondage of sin and death "into the liberty of the glory of the children of God." In the type, the plagues upon the Egyptians were preceded by three signs or testimonies, by which the Israelites were convinced that Moses has been sent by God and deliverance of them was at hand. What are the today's symbolic equivalents of those typical signs? Since sin entered the world and the people went their own ways, there began to grow lawlessness, which weakened universally the motivation for serving to God. The prophet Malachi described such state of affairs as follows (3:14, 15): "Ye have said, It is vain to serve God; and what profit is it that we have kept his charge, and that we have walked mournfully before Jehovah of hosts? And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are built up; yea, they tempt God, and escape." The situation in the world was worsening more and more, ...more

MORAL AND SOCIAL REFORMS   The Law of the Lord which will then go forth from Mount Zion, the Kingdom, and be promulgated to all the people from Jerusalem, the world's New Capital, as the Word of the Lord by his "princes," will at once take hold of what are already recognized as "crying evils." Moral reforms will be instituted along all lines; financial, social and religious questions will all be recast in harmony with both Justice and Love. Judgment will be laid to the line, and righteousness to the plummet (Isa. 28:17); all of earth's affairs will be squared and plumbed with righteousness – and will be brought into strict conformity thereto. How much this will signify as regards the suppression of all lines of business which tempt humanity by alluring and seducing through the weaknesses of their fallen natures and the unbalance of mental and moral qualities! The distillery, the brewery, the saloon, the brothel, the poolroom, all time-killing and character-depraving businesses will be stopped; and their servants will be given something to do that will be beneficial to themselves and others. Similarly, the building of war-vessels, the manufacture of munitions of war and defense will cease, and armies will be disbanded. ...more

IMPORTANCE OF THE KINGDOM   The most momentous event of earth's history is the establishment of God's Kingdom among men, in the hands of our Lord Jesus and his selected joint-heirs, the overcomers of the Gospel Church. This great event, toward which all of God's promises and types point, we now see to be not only at hand, but just upon us. None of those awake to these facts, and who properly or even partially realize them, and whose hearts are in full sympathy with God's great plan of the ages, and who see that God's panacea for the sin and misery and dying of the groaning creation is to be applied by this Kingdom, can possibly feel other than an absorbing interest in the fact, the time and the manner of its establishment.     CLASSES OF MEN INTERESTED IN IT   All who trust implicitly for the fulfilment of the prayer our Lord himself taught us to offer – "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is done in heaven" – must feel the liveliest interest in the fulfilment of their request, if they prayed from the heart – in spirit and in truth.

From this third part, Jesus put Psalms first, in which there are numerous mentions about his torments. The Lord Jesus expressed words quoted on the title after his resurrection, when He appeared eleventh time to his disciples. The following considerations will be devoted special words from the David's psalm, which our Lord with the great voice expressed on the cross just before his decease:     "Into thy hands I commend my spirit" Ps. 31:6; Luke 23:46     "This was the prophetic declaration of our Lord Jesus' dying words. He had received the spirit of life from the Father as a gift: he had, in obedience to the Father's plan, become a man to be man's Redeemer: and when yielding up his spirit of life or vital energy, he declared his reliance upon God's promise to give the spirit of life again, by a resurrection." E315 "With full confidence our dear Redeemer looked up to the Father, and full ...more
