    • Elias Manzanares
      they are part of the corrupted system of babylon..

      meaning like judas got corrupted..
      will be churches that get corrupted and announced false visions to make their way into power amount the nations…
      as we see today how babylon is in churches..
      now the beast its evil itself that will manifest as a person trying to deceive people into acepting the materialistic babylon..

      but the Lord himself will destroy all of them.

    • Luis Aigaje: Lois your abswers are providing in this very comment section- i will not repeat what has already been told- you raised the same point a few comments ago- look at the replies the answer is right there. I end my discussion here, so as to not waste my time because clearly you don’t read replies. Peace.

      I dont follow man doctrine or ideas..

      I follow the scripture

      And like i said if you want to disobey God thats your problem not mine..

      Im here to say the truth and to tell the world that Jesus is the way to salvation.

      Not mary as catholics believe.
      Nor saints
      Nor good deeds
      Nor angels.

      Only through Jesuschrist

      John 3:16

      Also keep and uphold God law

    • The one problem with what Luther did is made misinterpretation viral. With a Bible in everyone’s hands, an interpretation is there as well. Not everyone can be right, which is why doctrine needs to be clear and according to the clearest interpretation of scriptures. Anything less leads to confusion and really what resulted, the major fracturing of the church. I wish it could have just been a reformation, but sadly that was not possible given the actions of the Pope and the Church Body at the time. I do believe some good has come out of that part of the reformation. For one, giving a Bible to everyone is a wonderful check and balance against corruption, but it also inevitably spread confusion about doctrine. That being said, I can say with good confidence that you have your own man made doctrine. Though you may not follow the doctrine of any specific person, but because you do this, you have inevitably made your own doctrine. Sure, some of the stuff is going to be right, but a lot of it is going to be wrong when you leave the interpretation all to yourself. Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;” Proverbs 12:15 “The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice.” It is wise to seek counsel from those who no more. Ask a pastor, consult biblical scholars, look at the doctrines of Churches (that is, the ones that actually have defined doctrine). It may not lead you to a perfect doctrine, but I can assure you that at least it will get you a lot closer than your own solitary interpretation.

      AND RECEIVE IT. ..





      1 Corinthians 1:19-20New King James Version (NKJV)

      19 For it is written:

      “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
      And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”[a]

      20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

      1 Corinthians 4:19-20New King James Version (NKJV)

      19 But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord wills, and I will know, not the word of those who are puffed up, but the power. 20 For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power.

  1. It’s interesting how fictional universes and story lines like Star Wars and Harry Potter can vividly capture the hearts and minds of millions, while the same millions may forget that our very lives are part of the realest, grandest, most epic saga inclusive of all humanity from beginning till end!

    • There are a couple things they failed to mention. The false prophet is one. They glossed over the tribulation and rapture as well. They didn’t even talk about a future anti-christ, the rebuilding of the third temple (whether physical or not) or the abomination of desolation.

    • A Z There is no anti Christ in revelation nor a rapture as modern Americans understand it. rapture theology was invented in the 1800s.

    • Alexander Thomas, the rapture is debatable but the anti-christ is not. He goes by several names in the old and new testament. They describe the same individual and he comes in the future according to the vocabulary used in all ancient texts.

    • Who told you that there was ONE anti-Christ? It has been already manifest among us for ages now. Check 1 John 2:18-22; 1 John 4:3; 2 John 1:7

  2. Now its time to make a full length movie in animation that hits theaters.. Time to up the game and up the mission to witness to the world.!! God bless

  3. Where is the Rapture? Where is the great tribulation? There is some things that mention the great tribulation but you didn’t explained and “Revelation” is a prophecy

  4. Good video.

    The reference to Jesus’ robe being dipped in blood in Revelation 19 is definitely NOT a reference to his death on the cross and saying that he already had blood before the battle. This is a clear reference to Isaiah 63:1-4, and Isaiah says it is THEIR (his enemies) lifeblood that is scattered on his garments.

    Who is this who comes from Edom, in crimsoned garments from Bozrah,
    he who is splendid in his apparel, marching in the greatness of his
    strength? “It is I, speaking in righteousness, mighty to save.” Why is your
    apparel red, and your garments like his who treads in the winepress? “I
    have trodden the winepress alone, and from the peoples no one was with
    me; I trod them in my anger and trampled them in my wrath; their lifeblood
    spattered on my garments, and stained all my apparel. For the day of
    vengeance was in my heart, and my year of redemption had come.”

    • Yes, I thought of that too. I’ve heard the blood dripped robe was His blood several times. Their argument was it was bloody before the battle. The tie to Isaiah 63:1-4 seems too strong to me.

    • Timothy Willett yeah, as good as this video is, I did notice that as well. God’s using these guys for sure but I don’t agree with them on that part.

    • The creator of this series doesn’t believe in the violent wrath of God. Go look at their version for the book of Joshua. They claim it was all hyperbole because God would never order the Israelites to commit genocide. Nevermind the fact that the term genocide is man’s and can’t apply to God the creator of all things.

    • Timothy Willett How is it that you have completely missed the point in the video ? Revelations is using OT imagery to reveal the TRUE nature of things. The Lion of Judah is a Lamb, the army of the Lamb is an army of martyrs, not soldiers, the 144000 saved Israelites are a the full number of saved gentiles, the blood on Jesus’ clothes is His own, because in atonement, the blood of His enemies became His own.

  5. The interpretation of Revelation has been debated for 2,000 years. I don’t think we’ll resolve it in the Youtube comment section.

    The video was well made with good graphics. Probably my biggest beef wasn’t with their various interpretations, but with simply ignoring the Author of Revelation. It’s not John;

    Revelation 1:1-3 The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, 2 who testifies to everything he saw—that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. 3 Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.

    John heard and saw the Revelation of Jesus Christ and recorded it. The entire book is a letter to the Church. The seven churches are representatives of the entire Church. The theme of sevens comes from Jesus, not John.

    The proper title for the Book of Revelation is in verse 1: The Revelation of Jesus Christ.

    • You’re missing verse 1 and my earlier comment. John wrote the book–yes. He did not compose the book. The title of the book is ‘The Revelation of Jesus Christ’ given in verse 1. John wrote down what he heard and saw. It’s a letter from Jesus to the Church. John is the writer, not the composer of the book. Jesus directed John to write exactly as he did.

    • Why are y’all arguing who wrote it only Christ the root of David rev 22:16 can come and explain the bible rev 5:1-5 and if you don’t come to spirit AND THE BRIDE it’s no eternal life rev22:17 the bride is Jesus the lamb wife the new Jerusalem coming out of heaven rev 21:9 she is our mother just as Christ is our father gal 4:26 it’s been clear since the beginning gen 1:26 us and our the image of God Is male and female but the world eyes was veiled to image of God 2cor 4:4 but Christ had to come back to bring us salvation Hebrews 9:28 and be baptized again luke 12:49 that’s how i know and able to show u all things clearly in the bible the gospel is spreading quickly if u want to study message me but if we don’t accept the spirit and the bride we can’t receive water of life

  6. This video is a quick skim through, I get it. But it is really poor. Very fleshly, Americanized Christian culture interpreted Revelation in these videos, not the Spirit. Here is an example, the video stated the mark of the beast refers to the OT and is not literal where we will not know the mark from watching the news. This is wrong. Revelation 13 clearly states the mark is needed to buy and sell and all will need to get it rich, poor, free and jailed.

    THe makers of the video, influenced by fleshly, Americanized doctrine culture, make everything symbolic in Revelation except Jesus’ coming? So all of the sudden that is the only part that is taken literally? In order to interpret you need the Spirit’s discernment, not the discernment of the fleshly brain.

    The mark of the beast is the number of a man. That is literal and is the RFID micro chip to buy and sell. The Holy Spirit is witnessing of this through prophets worldwide.

    • Just because they didn’t spend 10 min explaining the mark of the beast doesn’t mean they took away from it’s meaning. It made perfect sense to me from what they said AND understanding the historical context of John’s first intended audience (Asia Minor churches). And why should they have to point out that the beast will be in the news? We Christians should be able to discern that on our own with assistance from the Holy Spirit, right? They’re trying to explain the book, not necessarily put their opinions into it. I don’t think it’s necessary for them to do it.

    • +Andy Sanchez we know that the beast will rise again, there will be a world order, the desecration of the temple, the two witnesses who will be killed but rise again and much more, so I think they should have explained more, Its a half truth to me. Its more than just a historical book.

    • Victor Rene I wouldn’t call it a half truth. I mean the video is just part of their series where they do a broad layover of books, so they’re not going to get into much detail. And it’s not just a historical book, but it’s not wise to ignore the historical truth weaved in and out of the book. I’m curious as to why you feel they should’ve said more? So you can then learn more for yourself? Or so you can see their stance and then try and pick it apart and judge them for being too “fleshly” in their interpretation? Cause if you are as biblically sound and what you’re making yourself to seem, you would be okay not having it explained since you’re secure in what you believe and have read for yourself. And now you might say they should explain for the sake of those who are newer or less knowledgeable in the word, well I believe that Jesus’s words are true when he said “ask and it shall be given unto you, seek and you shall find, knock and the door will be opened”, I believe humble honest people will have their questions answered if they truly seek God and to understand his book. I suggest you maybe think about the intentions you guys have on your hearts to hear more of what they have to say, what is it?

    • I have no malice or trying to pick it apart, I actually love their proverbs series and a few others but also find some lacking very much, as Christians we can discern. nothing wrong with that, especially these days where there is a lot of apostasy going on, how can people know if they aren’t taught, how can they ask?. I’m sure the Lord will show them if they ask sincerely but that’s not the point, but I will always point out a teaching that seems lacking. This overview is lacking. The reason I called it fleshy was because it seems as they don’t want to offend seekers and clearly Jesus did not care about offending seekers or loosing followers because his teachings might be too hard for them.. People will be turned off because of the truth of the bible.. The other video about Jesus is what made me start reviewing these, they omitted too much..

    • I agree with victor. Coming prophecy is more important than history in regards to Revelation. Not mentioning the coming great deception is not going to help anyone. If you have to choose between history and coming prophecy due to time constraints, I’ll take prophecy everytime. I believe mentioning Nero was a waste of time. There have been several minor anti-christs like him in the past. There names also equalled the number of the beast as well in gemmatria. Nero was nothing compared to what the final one is going to do.
