Book of Revelation Last Name entries

Book of Revelation 19: 11-16 Then I saw the heavens opened, and there was a white horse; its Rider was [called] Faithful and True.” He judges and wages war in righteousness. His Eyes were [like] a fiery flame, and on His Head were many diadems. He had a Name inscribed that no one knows except Himself. He wore a cloak that had been dipped in blood, and His Name was called the Word of God. The armies of Heaven followed Him, mounted on white horses and wearing clean white linen. Out of His Mouth came a sharp sword to strike the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod, and He Himself will tread out in the wine press the wine of the fury and the wrath of God the Almighty. He has a Name written on His cloak and on His Thigh, “King of kings and LORD of lords.”

The last scriptural entry with respect to the Name of the LORD
Book of Revelation 22: 1-4 Then the angel showed me the river of life-giving water, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of its street. On either side of the river grew the tree of life that produces fruit twelve times a year, once each month; the leaves of the trees serve as medicine for the nations. Nothing accursed will be found there anymore. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His servants will worship Him. They will look upon His Face, and His Name will be on their foreheads. Night will be no more, nor will they need light from lamp or sun, for the LORD God shall give them light, and they shall reign forever and ever.

Book of Revelation

Book of Revelation 14:1 Then I looked and there was the Lamb standing on Mount Zion and with Him a hundred and forty-four thousand who had His Name and His Father’s Name written on their foreheads.

Book of Revelation 15:3-4 They were holding God’s harps, and they sang the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb: “Great and wonderful are Your works, LORD God Almighty. Just and true are Your ways, O King of the nations. Who will not fear You, LORD, or glorify Your Name? For You alone are holy. All the nations will come and worship before You, for Your righteous acts have been revealed.”

Book of Revelation Chapter 13

Revelation 13: 2-10

2 The beast I saw was like a leopard, but it had feet like a bear’s, and its mouth was like the mouth of a lion.  *To it the dragon gave its own power and throne, along with great authority.
* satan, the prince of this world (⇒ John 12:31), commissioned the beast to persecute the Church (⇒ Rev 13:5-7).

3 I saw that one of its heads seemed to have been mortally wounded, but this mortal wound was healed.  Fascinated, the whole world followed after the beast.

4 They worshiped the dragon because it gave its authority to the beast; they also worshiped the beast * and said, “Who can compare with the beast or who can fight against it?”
*Worshiped the beast: allusion to emperor worship, which Domitian insisted upon and ruthlessly enforced. Who can compare with the beast: perhaps a deliberate parody of the name Michael; see the note on ⇒ Rev 12:7.

5  The beast was given a mouth uttering proud boasts and blasphemies*, and it was given authority to act for forty-two months**.
* Some emperors demanded that they be called by divine titles such as “our lord and god” and “Jupiter.” See the note on ⇒ Rev 11:2.
**Forty-two months: this is the same duration as the profanation of the holy city (⇒ Rev 11:2), the prophetic mission of the two witnesses (⇒ Rev 11:3), and the retreat of the woman into the desert (⇒ Rev 12:6, ⇒ 14).

6 It opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming His name and His dwelling and those who dwell in heaven.

7 It was also allowed to wage war against the holy ones and conquer them, and it was granted authority over every tribe, people, tongue, and nation.

8 All the inhabitants of the earth will worship it, all whose names were not written from the foundation of the world in the book of life, which belongs to the Lamb who was slain.

9 Whoever has ears ought to hear these words.

10 Anyone destined for captivity goes into captivity. Anyone destined to be slain by the sword shall be slain by the sword. Such is the faithful endurance of the holy ones.

Book of Revelation

Book of Revelation 11:16-18 (After the seventh angel blew the trumpet) The twenty-four elders who sat on their thrones before God prostrated themselves and worshiped God and said: “We give thanks to You, LORD God almighty, Who are and Who were. For You have assumed Your great power and have established Your reign. The nations raged, but Your wrath has come, and the time for the dead to be judged, and to recompense Your servants, the prophets, and the holy ones and those who fear Your Name, the small and the great alike, and to destroy those who destroy the earth.”

Book of Revelation Jesus talks to the Churches

The last book of the Bible is the Revelation to St. John or called the Book of Revelation, or the Apocalypse, or sometimes it is known as the ‘Sealed Book.’ This book is not easily understood because of the imagery and symbolism in the text. Angels, scrolls, bowls, lampstands, and many other images, also many frightening images like the red dragon, the black beast tell of times of unprecedented upheaval before the second coming of the LORD. It is best to read this book using the footnotes. You should read this book because it states clearly in the text that those who read it will be blessed. In terms of understanding the meaning of the text, only time and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit through the consecrated Clergy will impart the meaning of the text to us. It has been called the ‘sealed book’ because its meaning will be elusive to the reader until the appointed time, then its meaning will be unsealed and will present clarity to the believer.
The Apostle John the Evangelist (author of the Gospel of John and the 3 letters of John) is also the author of the Book of Revelation. Chapters 2 and 3 are correspondences to seven churches. They follow a pattern of commendation for being faithful, criticism for faults, call to repentance, threat of judgment, and promise of reward for those who respond.

Book of Revelation 2:3 (Jesus‘ message to Ephesus) “Moreover, you have endurance, and you have suffered for My Name, and you have not grown weary.”

Book of Revelation 2:13, 17 (Jesus‘ message to Pergamum)
verse 13 “I know that you live where satan’s throne is, and yet you hold fast to My Name and have not denied your faith in Me, not even in the days of Antipas, My faithful witness, who was martyred among you, where satan lives.
verse 17 {{This passage has to do with the LORD giving the faithful person a new name. Recall that often God renames favored persons. For example: Abram to Abraham, Sarai to Sarah, Jacob to Israel, Simon to Peter, and Saul to Paul}} Book of Revelation 2:17 (Jesus‘ message to Pergamum) “Whoever has ears ought to hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the victor I shall give some of the hidden manna; I shall also give a white amulet upon which is inscribed a new name, which no one knows except the one who receives it.”
Book of Revelation 3:8 (Jesus‘ message to Philadelphia) “You have limited strength, and yet you kept My Word and have not denied My Name.”
Book of Revelation 3:12 (message to Philadelphia) “The victor I will make into a pillar in the temple of My God and he will never leave it again. On him I will inscribe the Name of My God and the Name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, as well as My new Name.”

First and Third Letter of St. John

The Apostle John wrote the following three letters to the Churches but only letters one and three contain references to the Name of the LORD.

First Letter of John 2: 12 I am writing to you, children, because your sins have been forgiven for His Name’s sake.

First Letter of John 3: 23 And His commandment is this: we should believe in the Name of His Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another just as He commanded us.

First Letter of John 5:13 I write these things to you so that you may know that you have eternal life, you who believe in the Name of the Son of God.

Third Letter of John verses 5-8 Beloved, you are faithful in all you do for the brothers, especially for strangers; they have testified to your love before the church. Please help them in a way worthy of God to continue their journey. For they have set out for the sake of the Name and are accepting nothing from the pagans. Therefore, we ought to support such persons, so that we may be co-workers in the truth.
The Letter of Jude contains no references to the Name of the LORD

First Letter of St. Peter

First Letter of Peter 1: 12-18 Beloved, do not be surprised that a trial by fire is occurring among you, as if something strange were happening to you. But rejoice to the extent that you share in the sufferings of Christ, so that when His glory is revealed you may also rejoice exultantly. If you are insulted for the Name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. But let no one among you be made to suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as an intriguer. But whoever is made to suffer as a Christian should not be ashamed but glorify God because of the Name. For it is time for the judgment to begin with the household of God; if it begins with us, how will it end for those who fail to obey the Gospel of God. “And if the righteous one is barely saved, where will the godless and the sinner appear?”
No Holy Names references in the Second Letter of Peter

Letter to the Hebrews

Scholars can not be certain of who wrote the letter to the Hebrews. The letter exalts Christ in His superiority.

Letter to the Hebrews 1: 1-4 In times past, God spoke in partial and various ways to our ancestors through the prophets; in these last days, He spoke to us through a Son, Whom He made Heir of all things and through Whom He created the universe, Who is the refulgence of His glory, the very imprint of His Being, and Who sustains all things by His mighty Word. When He had accomplished purification from sins, He took His seat at the right Hand of the Majesty on high, as far superior to the angels as the Name He has inherited is more excellent than theirs.
Letter to the Hebrews 2: 11-12 He who consecrates and those who are being consecrated all have one origin. Therefore he is not ashamed to call them “brothers,” saying, “I will proclaim Your Name to my brothers, in the midst of the assembly I will praise You.”
Letter to the Hebrews 6:10 For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love you have demonstrated for His Name by having served and continuing to serve the holy ones.
Letter to the Hebrews 11: 17-18 By faith Abraham, when put to the test, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises was ready to offer his only son, of whom it was said, “Through Isaac descendants shall bear Your Name.”
Letter to the Hebrews 13: 15 Through Him [then] let us continually offer God a sacrifice of praise, that is, the fruit of lips that confess His Name.

Letter of St. James

The Letter of James has been called ‘the Proverbs of the New Testament because it is written in the moralistic style of wisdom literature.’
Letter of James 2: 5-7 Listen, my beloved brothers. Did not God choose those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the Kingdom that He promised to those who love Him? But you dishonored the poor person. Are not the rich oppressing you? And do they themselves not haul you off to court? Is it not they who blaspheme the noble Name that was invoked over you?
Letter of James 5: 8-10 You too must be patient. Make your hearts firm, because the coming of the LORD is at hand. Do not complain, brothers, about one another, that you may not be judged. Behold, the Judge is standing before the gates. Take as an example of hardship and patience, brothers, the prophets who spoke in the Name of the LORD.
Letter of James 5:13-15 Is anyone among you suffering? He should pray. Is anyone in good spirits? He should sing praise. Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint [him] with oil in the Name of the LORD, and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the LORD will raise him up. If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven.
