Seven Churches - Thoughts on the seven angels of Revelation
The book of Revelation of the Apostle John contains a strong prophecy that will determine our time completely. Neither religious nor mystical script gives such a summarized prophecy of events that come such as this revelation. It is no coincidence that we are happy to read and keep this prophecy because the time is close. However, we may ask: “Who reads it?” In fact, only the one who understands, can accept it, he can obtain strength and faith from what is prophesied.
Because the contexts are so multifaceted and voluminous that an entire book would have to be written for accurate analysis. I ask the reader to look at a well-stylized explanation that presents every aspect of what is being said. Although I have tried to analyze the new ideas accurately, I dealt a little with contexts that are already known from other resources. I entrust the possible exploration of all this to the skill of the reader, for which he finds great help with the work of Franz Bardon.
In this regard, see also [Our Age from the Perspective of Biblical Prophecies].
The secret of seven stars
The vision described in the first three chapters is the secret of the seven stars, revealing a serious context that requires us to rethink almost every interpretation of Revelation so far. John emphasizes that he is on the day of the Lord and sees what will happen in the future at the second coming of Jesus. Jesus evaluates the actions of the churches so far and their faith. We can see that a longer period of time may have to pass, which can now be evaluated. For this reason, we can conclude that it is unlikely to exist in the time of the apostle John evaluation of the work of congregations. This concludes the period when there is only a short time left, because the fulfillment of the prophecy will come quickly.
So, we can say that the seven churches in Asia were only a foreshadowing of the future.
Can we determine which of the seven congregations we are actually talking about, the foreshadows of which were the churches in Asia?
According to the description, the seven churches are in heaven, and Christ walks among them, holding in his hand seven stars. This means that seven churches may be the seven cosmic spheres named after the seven planets in the Solar System: Moon, Mercury, Venus, Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn. Here it is important to realize that the seven planets, not identical with the seven cosmic spheres, are merely analogous to it. And the seven stars are seven angels of these churches. In this regard, see Emil Páleš: Angelology, 2012, Bratislava
If our theory is true, we need to find more references to this in the description. We must also find the characteristic features of seven heavenly spheres in the churches.
Ephesus , Smyrna [*] , Pergamum [*] , Thyatira , Sardis [*] , Philadelphia , Loadicea
Sphere of the Sun:
At the church at Ephesus, Jesus presents himself as the one who walks among the seven churches, holding seven stars in his right hand.
In the case of the Solar System, the Sun plays a similarly central role, roughly controlling the operation of the entire Solar System. Among other things, Jesus says that he knows that in this church those who consider themselves apostles are put to the test, but they are not. This also refers to the sphere of the Sun, since union with God can be achieved primarily in the sphere of the Sun, which is an essential condition for the apostles. So the existence of this can best be justified by the sphere of the Sun (enlightenment, TIPHARETH).
Jesus even says that if the church does not turn right, it will remove the candlesticks from its place. A central oversight role similar to the Sun also appears here. Interestingly, Ephesus also meant "overseer," "desirable," and "Asia."
The tree of life in paradise also symbolizes union with God (the sphere of the Sun also provides material life and the existence of spacetime).
At the church of Smyrna, Jesus presents himself as the first and last, dead but alive again.
Saturn is the last of the seven spheres. The Saturnian sphere dominates the principle of destruction, and therefore death and karmic forces. Jesus overcame death, which means that it also fully controls the forces of Saturn's sphere. It is no coincidence that Jesus tells this church to withstand death and receive the crown of life.
Interestingly, Smyrna was built on (and around) Mount Pagos. "Pagos" means counting, payment, figuratively: judging, as in the case of "Aero Pagos".
At the church in Pergamum, Jesus presents himself as having a sharp, double-edged sword and will fight those who are not on the right path. This is clearly a quality that can be attached to the sphere of Mars. It is even said here that the throne of Satan is there. (It is also clear from this sentence that it is primarily a matter of the spiritual sphere instead of Pergamon.) As we know, Satan, as a spiritual being, comes from the sphere of Mars, for which there is more evidence.
I will only mention as an interesting fact that during the archeological excavation of Pergamon, many of the city's treasures and the altar were also transported to Berlin in the early 20th century. Is it any coincidence that Berlin gained a very Martian role in history, culminating in World War II?
At the church of Thyatira, we have a simple thing to do, because the dawn star (the planet Venus) appears here, which is clearly connected to the sphere of Venus. There are several related concepts such as: glowing copper, love (or affection), fornication, Jezebel, examination of the kidneys and heart, and so on.
We can also read that "whose eyes are like the flame of fire", the explanation of which would require a very long analysis. In this concept, I mention the following verse as a guide:
"Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame. Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot sweep it away. If one were to give all the wealth of one’s house for love, it would be utterly scorned. " (Song of Songs 8: 6,7)
In the church of Sardis, the possession of the qualities of the spirit appears as the quality and purity of the astral body. As we know, the qualities of the spirit are inscribed in the soul, and the quality of the soul is characterized by its purity. The concept of soul can also be applied to "living" as "living soul." That is why we can read in this church that your name means a living one. The sphere of the moon in man is analogous to the soul. (In the Hungarian world, the Moon is more connected to the realm of the dead, the astral space, than to the home of souls. However, the soul is also synonymous with the living, as it is breathing, which is important to interpret correctly.)
The entry in the book of life, and the white dress, is also tied to the purity of the soul. The sphere of the Moon also includes the danger of evening darkness, such as the importance of humanity and the loss of the treasure of existing purity and fidelity by some weakness (thief), see Revelation 16:15.
It is interesting to mention that it was here in the city of Sardis that the way of purifying gold was discovered, which was achieved by separating the silver. This procedure has brought enormous wealth to the city.
The name Sardis is associated with the word "sard" (carnelian-like, nano-yellow or brown and white stone), which is traditionally associated with the constellations Cancer (Moon). See this article for more information.
For the province of Philadelphia, such things appeared: saint, true David´s key; new Jerusalem, love, God's name, crown. These parts belong to the Jupiter sphere because we met there with12 angel superintendents that are in touch with 12 signs. The 12th apostles, the 12th of Israel tribes, the New Jerusalem 12 gates, 12 gems that belong to this sphere.
Jupiter sphere in the field of sorrows and, in all respects, in terms of legacy and interest in law. (Jupiter spheres as well as the cosmic architecture of the cosmic architecture, very clean.) These are the words of the children of the "men", but they are not known. The back in the case of other spheres, as long as the negative risk of Jesus was not accepted. According to the proverbs of Philadelphia, he rejoiced in the past.
In the church of Laodicea we read: "This is what Amen, the faithful and true witness, says, in the beginning of God's creation." It is the duty of the witness to testify (say in a court), to give evidence to uncover the truth. Amen is also a confirmation of truth, a certainty worth signing or taking an oath.
Jesus is the beginning of God’s creation, which is also spoken of in John 1:1-10 and Proverbs 8:22,12. So the outpouring of God's spirit (thoughts), by the Verb or Word, is the beginning of creation. In the creation that has already taken place, all this clearly signifies a quality that can be linked to the sphere of Mercury. The sphere of Mercury is analogous to the mental sphere of man, and therefore has an influence on the spirit, the mental body, in every human being.
The geniuses of the sphere of Mercury also teach you how to gain such a strong faith as Christ preached: “He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20)
The outpouring of the spirit (thoughts) of God, by the Word, is the beginning of creation. Already accomplished in creation, it clearly signifies a quality that can be linked to the sphere of Mercury. The sphere of Mercury is analogous to the mental sphere of man, and therefore exercises on the spirit, the mental body, in every man's influence. The geniuses of the sphere of Mercury also teach how to gain such strong faith, which Christ preached, "For verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as great as ye have, mustard seeds and you say to this mountain, ‘go from here to there’, go away and nothing will happen it is impossible for you." (Matthew 17:20)
In this church we can also read that he thinks of himself as rich because he has accumulated great wealth in the past, which was true, but has now become poor. For an explanation, see [The 72 Mercury Geniuses in the Bible] and as for poverty, we know that in our modern age, faith and divine revelations are classified as unscientific, and spiritual development in this area has become very poor. The healing balm for the eye can also be linked to the sphere of Mercury, as this sphere is also the patron saint of medicine.
Jesus also refers to spiritual nourishment when he says that whoever hears his voice will open his home, and then Jesus will have dinner with him. It is also interesting that the meaning of Laodicea refers to the righteousness, "the truth of the people".
In this regard, see also [Hierarchy of the Heavenly Spheres] and
[Louis Szántai: The 7 Stars of Revelation], although this assignment is not flawless, but it is pioneering.
After this, the question arises as to why the individual spheres appear in such an arrangement?
What is the internal logic of this arrangement?
The internal logic of the layout
To understand this, the depiction described in Franz Bardon: The Real Kabbalah is a great help. In this picture, the arrangement of the planets contains symmetries less commonly used in astrology (although Indian astrology is well acquainted with this arrangement).
Of course, it is not the astrological context but the Kabbalistic approach that is decisive here. In this sense, Kabbalah is not meant to be known as Kabbalah from Jewish mysticism, but rather the art of the real Kabbalah, the "Creator Word".
Like everything in creation, planets show magnetic and electrical (yin/yang, female/male) properties.
This image shows Mars, Sun, Venus on the electrical side and Jupiter, Saturn and the Moon on the magnetic side.
The three are electric: Mars, Sun, Venus, where Mars is purely electric, the Sun is magnetically electric (neutral), and Venus is magnetic, within electric polarity.
The three are magnetic: Jupiter, Saturn, Moon, where Jupiter is electric, Saturn is electrically magnetic, the Moon is purely magnetic, within magnetic polarity.
Neutral polarity is represented by Mercury. This sphere is indeed both electric and magnetic, and so as a whole, it can be said to be neutral. This is also evident from the fact that the names of the 72 Mercury geniuses all end in "El (אֵל)" or "Yah (יָה)." [The 72 Mercury Geniuses in the Bible]
If we observe well, the logic of this arrangement is completely in line with the order of the seven churches, where Sun-Saturn, Mars-Venus, Moon-Jupiter pairs, and neutral Mercury appear.
What’s even more interesting is that these pairs can even be recognized on the map (Ephesus - Smyrna, Pergamon - Thyatira, Sardis - Philadelphia, Loadicea).
This arrangement is also in line with the kabbalah ( with Sefer Jecira) system, which is detail explained in the article "About the letters".
Consequences and issues
The time is near
The book of Revelation begins with the words, "The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place."
We can read in several places that this prophecy will be fulfilled in a short time, and then almost 2,000 years have passed. Yet, in spite of everything, it is possible that a really short time will pass if this time is not counted from the beginning of Christianity, but from the day of the Lord. The question is, when will it all start to come true?
In this regard, see [Our Age from the Perspective of Biblical Prophecies] article.
Blessed is he who reads, because he reads, because he is inspired to do so by the signs of fulfillment, which gives him the key to understanding.
The power of Jesus
At the church in Ephesus, Jesus also says that if they do not turn right, they will remove their candlesticks from their place. This, in turn, means that Jesus can remove even the sphere of the Sun from its place.
Perhaps it is worth thinking here about how much power Jesus would come on the day of the Lord if he could even remove the sphere of the Sun?
Satan is mentioned three times. In the spheres of Saturn, Mars, and Venus, which is worth taking a closer look at.
The throne of Satan in the sphere of Mars testifies that we are dealing with a very energetic being who does not shy away from any killing in the realization of his purposes.
We know of the sphere of Venus, from ancient records, that it is also favored by demons.
And in the realm of Saturn we find a reference to those who call themselves Jews (not literally) but are not, and form the synagogue (allies) of Satan, but do so in disguise as if they were Jews. Considering the characteristics of the Saturnian sphere, we can conclude that this synagogue may represent Satan-inspired aspirations for free creed and thought in the totalitarian, globalist, and technocratic world order. [Our age from the perspective of biblical prophecy]
Here we can even read, "Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you life as your victor’s crown."
There are several questions about this.
Can spiritual beings like angels die? Although they do not grow old, they may die in war or violence. Proof of this is the following quote:
“Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: "Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Messiah. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night has been hurled down. They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death." (Revelation 12:7)
Another question: If Satan has been cast down from heaven to earth, and this is interpreted as an event that has already happened in the past, how will he be able to imprison or kill some members of the Saturnian congregation in heaven in the future? All this suggests that this event has not happened, yet. Most religious denominations teach that this event has already taken place, but still do not agree on when it would have happened. Each denomination teaches something different about this, which is no wonder. In fact, there is no certainty about this, although it is a very important event. See also:
"At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people - everyone whose name is found written in the book - will be delivered." (Daniel 12:1)
Consumption of fornication and food sacrificed to idols
The churches of Venus and Mars are warned against this. This is interesting because it also makes spiritual sense, as it is primarily a warning to spiritual forces. The consumption of fornication and sacrificial food is similar in many ways. One of the main meanings of fornication is when love, as a relationship, becomes a commodity in exchange for money, for career, power, prosperity…, and is not in harmony with higher spiritual values, the purity of the soul. Consumption of sacrificial food is the consumption and tolerance of worship and spiritual nourishment (due to the affection of emotions, the captivating experience of transfiguration), which is ultimately contrary to true spiritual values and involves the deformation of pure love, the loss of selflessness. All of this provides a breeding ground for deviant sexual practices, clientelism, corruption, lobbying, false philanthropic forces, false ideas, and biased assessment of truth.
It is a false disguise of our love for one another (a false public interest) and a humiliation of our divine freedom and self. Our spirit loses control of the emotional forces of the soul, which, without the guidance of the spirit, create many contradictions in the subconscious and can create psychic conflicts or illnesses. It is no coincidence that we find this admonition in the realms of Mars and Venus.
Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) also discovered all this and based his psychoanalysis on it. It’s just unfortunate that he tied his theory almost exclusively to sexuality.
There is also a sect of the Nicolaitans associated with idolatry, which signifies nationalist (fascism) or similar behavior, see Rel.2:26. "Nico" means "victory" in Greek, and laos means "people".
Positive and negative thinking
Positive thinking is a very popular teaching today, but it is most often a completely misunderstood concept that often ignores critical thinking. In the book of Revelation we read:
"But you have this in your favor: You hate the practices of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate." (Revelation 2:6) Here hatred appears as a positive quality.
Revenge is generally said to be a negative quality, but do the saints in Revelation 6: 9,10 ask, when will God avenge their blood? It shows that revenge can be positive in some cases, and forgiveness can be negative.
I have tried to outline briefly that the Book of Revelation contains many deep parallels, and many other interesting contexts about our present, thinking, and future are revealed. A great many symbols and a series of almost incredible events make the reader understand the deeper spiritual connections and strengthen their faith.
There are many other correlations, e.g. In connection with the prophecy of Daniel and the rebirth of pure Christianity.
"Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever." (Daniel 12:3)
"He who testifies to all this says, 'Yes, I will come soon.' Amen. Come, Lord Jesus."
After the seven churches received the exhortations from Jesus, John then entered a very high heavenly realm to show him what would happen in the future. Here he sees the throne of the 24 elders between the throne of God and the 4 cherubim, which is certainly identical with the 24 primordial intelligences of the earthly zone. This is very logical, since after the discussion of the seven spiritual spheres logically follows the earth, where 24 prainteligences (kings) have the greatest power, and this sphere extends to the entire cosmos as a manifestation of the divine creation. See
[Hierarchy of Heavenly Spheres].
Jesus no longer appears here in the form of a son of man, but in the form of a lamb, as if he were dead (murdered).
"Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. The Lamb had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth." (Revelation 5:6)
This is because the lamb also symbolizes true Christianity, which is almost dead today and will be reborn from this state (see Revelation 12).
The book of Revelation discusses events on several levels, as seven horns (trumpets) appear when the seventh seal is opened, and the seven chalices (cups) strike as the seventh trumpet is uttered. This means that the sequence of events is described on several levels.
1. Seven-Seal Written Scroll - Akasha,
2. sound of trombones - mental sphere,
3. pouring goblets - astral sphere.
All this is well evidenced by the fact that the same events appear several times, repeatedly in the prophecy, but in each case a little differently (which explain each other). To cite just one example of many, one-third of the stars fall asleep: Revelation 6:13; 8:12; 12:4, which means that one third of the angels are carried away by Satan.
It is also interesting that John also names one of the rulers of the 360 above-ground zone in Revelation 9:11 (Apollyon), which proves that he also knew the 360 ruler.
There are many other examples that would usually require a longer explanation.
For all these reasons, we come across many symbols that cannot be taken literally, but must first be deciphered in their spiritual sense. For example, the term "sea" or "many waters" means nations and nations and their spirits (Revelation 17:15; 19:6). So when we read that one-third of the seas have turned to blood, it can also mean that the spirituality (faith, will) of peoples will be toxic (harmful, destructive) to people’s lives or health.
