      Hello Arthur,

      Here are some comments on your sections.

      1. I COME QUICKLY

      Jesus’s “coming quickly” in the passages where the seven churches are being specifically addressed are dealing with His coming to chastise them if they do not repent. However, we cannot ignore that His Spirit is in each an every saint who walks in the Light of His word as He is The Light and Word, for He has promised He would never leave nor forsake His people.

      However, though the scriptures clearly teach us how “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God,” It is a more fearful thing to fall out of His grace and to forsake His word by which He has healed (reconciled) us to Himself.

      Such is why those passages were Jesus is “coming quickly” in chapter 22, that is a reference to His coming with rewards for both the obedient and disobedient.

      2. Other Pieces of The Puzzle

      Concerning your “Explanation – Jesus has been coming in clouds of people moment to moment for the last two thousand years,” I understand what you are saying and agree with you conceptually. However, I could not a agree that your statement is a proper exegesis of all the verse you grouped together. You have a broad scope of verses grouped together there.

      3. Type and Shadow = angel of the Lord or the presence of the Lord

      Agreed, these are indeed witnesses of the Lord’s presence among His people

      4. Your “…BRIEF STUDY OF ……. THE LAKE OF FIRE”

      Yes, there is indeed a literal lake of fire awaiting the wicked.

      5. FIRE COMES OUT OF THE LORD’S MOUTH

      Yes, fire comes out of His mouth, but to me it is metaphoric of His judgment against neither heaven or earth or the powers of darkness can withstand. But, yes, it may indeed be literal fire….

      6. FIRE COMES OUT OF THE LEVIATHAN AND DEMONIC FORCES MOUTH ALSO

      Yes, there is sufficient historical documentation to believe that the leviathan may indeed been a creation of God that literally expelled fire in some measure from its mouth. Even though many commentators believe that the leviathan was the “ crocodile, according to naturalists, lying long under water, and being there forced to hold its breath, when it emerges, the breath long repressed is hot, and bursts out so violently, that it resembles fire and smoke,” Adam Clarke.

      However, in light of the bombardier beetles it is evident that God has created some amazing defenses for His creatures….

      Here is an interesting video on “fire breathing dragons.”

      However, again you have group some verses together that wander a bit from the subtitle.

      7. THE SPIRITS THAT ARE RELEASED FROM THE LORDS MOUTH REFINE AND PURIFY HIS PEOPLE

      I not really in agreement with this subtitle and the verses, though they are among my personal favorites. That the Lord would be a refiner of His people, but again, I would attribute this to His word and dealings with His people to bring them into agreement with His judgments that He might purge us from our carnal nature and help us perfect holiness in the fear of God.

      8. THE DEMONIC FORCES THAT ARE RELEASED OUT OF THE MOUTHS THE BODY OF SATAN GO INTO SWINE( A TYPE OF THE BEAST) AND INTO A LAKE OF FIRE

      Not sure I am following you in this subtopic…

      9. THIS IS ALL ONGOING PRESENT TENSE IN OUR WORLD TODAY-DAVID DEFINES HELL AS BEING SURROUNED BY EVIL MEN, ENEMY’S (NOTE THE PRESENT TENSE IN DAVID’S LIFE OF HELL)

      Again Brother Arthur, you have many verses grouped into this subtopic that cover a broad scope. In some verse the word “hell” signifies the grave, other’s the place of the dead. However, to assert that David was experiencing hell in the present tense I could not agree with. He was receiving chastisement for His sin with Bathsheba as the Prophet Nathan said he would.

      II Samuel 12:10 Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife. 11 Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun. 12 For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel, and before the sun.
      1Sa 16:22; 2Sa 16:22

      10. FIRE OF HELL IS ON GOING PRESENT TENSE FOR THOSE OUTSIDE NEW COVENANT WHO DO NOT LOVE THEIR ENEMY’S-SO WE HAVE TWO GROUPS SEPARATING TODAY -THOSE IN CHRIST AND THE REST OF THE WORLD QUENCH

      Again, it seems to me that you have group a variety of verses and applied a subtitle that’s a bit awkward.

      Numbers 11:2; deals with God’s judgment of fire against those that murmured against Him.
      II Samuel_14:7, speaks of “quench my coal which is left” in the sense of ending a family’s lineage.
      Ephesians 6:16 – “the fiery darts of the wicked” are the not literal, but pain assaults against the righteous why can be quenched by their faith, just as a literal shield would protect against literal darts.
      I Thessalonians 5:19 – is an admonition not to let unbelief frustrate the Spirit of Grace working in one’s life.
      Hebrews 11:34 – “Fire” is only mentioned as one of several things the righteous have overcome by the faith.

      11. FIRE OF VIOLENCE (FALL OF BABYLON)

      Again, it seems to me that you have group a variety of verses, and only one, Revelation 18:11 that applies to Babylon’s judgment….

      12. SECOND DEATH

      Yes, there is a second death, eternal separation from God.

      13. BITE

      “Bite” represent both provoked and unprovoked attacks. Some chastisements and some persecutions…

      14. DEEP WATER

      “Deep water” often representing the hidden things that must be sought out if they are to be known and understood.

      15. Well of Living Water & 16. Rivers of Living Water

      All speaking of the spiritual life source that come like living water to those who have ears to hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

      Stay blessable Arthur

      PS – Have family visiting for a short time and stole away to reply…
