Proof of God #51 Revelation 5 11-14 final
Interpreting the Bible
Revelation 5:11. And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
The angels are those who were sanctified before the flood, but once sanctified all are equal in the Kingdom. At the time this book was written, they were millions of them. Today God has had 2,000 more years to sanctify more souls. We cannot humanly fathom the number of beings that serve him, but it is definitely in the billions.
12. Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, honor, and glory, and blessing.
“Power and riches” does not necessarily mean what we would think it means. No one now has more power and riches than Jesus. That power is the power to motivate souls to do His bidding to help their fellowman. The riches is the love of those who follow Him on His path to sanctification. No one has more honor, glory, and blessings.
13. And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying, Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto him that sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
Wow, what a theology buster! “And every creature,” not angel, not, man, not woman, but creature! There are three Hebrew words for creature. One is “sherets,” meaning “a swarm,” the original meaning is “return, creates, danger,” which would describe a swarm of bees, if you “return” to where they are, you would be “creating” a “dangerous” situation for yourself. Another word, is “nepesh” which means “a breathing creature,” the original meaning is “around, a pure, return,” this is pure sarcasm. It is referring to a soul who was a glutton, returning as a pig, or a soul who was interested in having a harem, returning as stud horse, or like Nebuchadnezzer returning seven times as a beast of the field. The last word “Chay” means “alive,” the original meaning is “to hold, life,” which would refer to any animal that moved, breathed, and reproduced.
The amazing thing? These creatures are given souls and placed in heaven, which means a creature’s soul is also “saved,” “and on the earth,” refers to the creatures who are living now. “and under the earth,” refers to the creatures who are dead! “such as are in the sea,” refers to the creatures who live in the sea. The fish, the whale, the lobsters, the clams, in short, all life! Shades of Genesis’ snake and Balam’s ass, Every creature in the world is speaking together saying, “Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto him that sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. The four beasts are symbols of all life on earth, this passage is simply an extension of that symbol. God, angels, and sanctified beings, have the ability to communicate with each other, but that is unavailable to the unsanctified.
14. And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshiped him that lives forever and ever.
“Amen” means “one’s, thoughts, are known,” by God of course, which is how those in the Kingdom communicate.
“And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshiped him that lives forever and ever.”
As will we all.
