Revelation 19:1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:
  • Notice, these voices are in the heavens, not the earth.
  • Here are the saints that we read about in Revelation 5, Which were already at the altar.
  • In Greek, a better translation for ''much people'' would be ''My people''.
2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.
  • Here is the avenging which was called for by the saints in Revelation 6
3 And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.
  • This smoke is the haze of deception, And it will be no more.
  • Psalms 37:7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
    Ps 37:20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.
  • Psalms 37:34 Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.
  • Ezekiel 28:18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.
    19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.
    20 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
    21 Son of man, set thy face against Zidon, and prophesy against it,
4 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.
  • These are the same beasts that properly translated, mean the cherubim's.
  • This is the last time they will be mentioned in the Bible.
  • The elders have completed their work and are giving praise.
5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.

6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.
  • These are the voices of many people, masses who have learned the truth.
7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
  • Notice the word used here is ''wife'', not widow, virgin, or bride. Which were words used through out Revelation to denote His wife.
  • He has returned and claimed His own, the first fruits, or elect, They have become His wife again.
8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
  • ''Righteousness'' in the original text reads ''righteous acts''.
  • This explains how the wife in verse 7 makes herself ready.
  • Clean and white bright and pure. The fine linen is, your ''righteous acts'' this is your works. That she, the elect, accomplished in the face of Satan.
  • Revelation 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
  • Revelation 3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eye salve, that thou mayest see.
9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
  • Isaiah 54:1 Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the LORD.
  • When Christ said, "Blesses are those that are barren''.
  • He spoke of all souls whether they were in widowhood (already married) or virgin brides awaiting their husband.
  • God is more natural than we are, therefore He can see natural things, such as marriage to help us better understand the emotions and feeling that He relates to us.
  • Notice the word ''called''.
  • 7th trumpet = Matthew 22 tells us of the parable of those ''called'' to the wedding.
  • Matthew 22:11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
    12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
    13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
    14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
  • This is what he talking about in this verse.
  • He sent out His servants with invitations to His wedding, But no one came, The servants were killed.
  • Then the king sent for his army and burned the city.
  • What city?
  • Babylon
  • Many that think they are called, will be cast into darkness, Because they have not the ''robe of righteous acts''.
  • Matthew 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
  • Blessed are they which are called

  • 1 John 1:1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;

14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
  • Out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, what is God's sword? His word, the truth.
  • He declares war and His weapon is the truth.
  • Psalms 14:2 The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;

18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
  • We see here the white, red, black and pale horses and their riders and all that helped.
  • Many will be deceived by their lie.
  • They shall receive their just reward.
  • All are changed into their own spiritual body
19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.

20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
  • False prophet that wrought miracles before him.
  • How does Satan deceived?
  • Satan comes with power, to deceive them that have not study God's word.
  • With which he deceived them that had received the mark
  • These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
  • Notice, There are only two of them cast into the lake of fire.
  • The beast system and the false christ
  • (Which came and said that he was Christ and stood in the Lamb's place) were used by God to do His will.
21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
  • The words ''remnant'' in the original  text read ''the rest''.
  • This verse should read, and the rest were slain with the sword.
  • What is the sword?
