Last night I was thinking of something I said in post #92 that is incorrect. And that is when I said in that last sentence about it being the spiritual battle going on since the resurrection. Some of the things that happened in the OT, as we see in Samuel, the Kings, and other places and some of the prophecies that happened in the OT, are part of what we get the "behind the scenes" in the spiritual realm perspective of, in Revelation also. The what was, what is, and what is to be. I have a feeling that if I ever get through this very detailed process, what will be seen is a beautiful, majestic "picture book" of the inside story. In the rest of the Bible, particularly the OT we are told what God is doing, as in the earthly battles and judgments, and we are shown who He is. But there is a sense of it taking place at our level. In Revelation He lets us see in great glory, what is taking place in all this in the spiritual realm.
I would be very interested to hear and learn what you discover as you progress in your study.
