(Lyrics) The Book of Revelation Ver 2
Words and Music by Leslie (aka Jesse) Hughes ©
(Expanded Version 2 Lyrics)

Who is, who was, and who is to come?
Is the War of Armageddon between two kingdoms
We are the Son born by the power of the Spirit, from Jerusalem and the Kingdom Above
The slave son is born in the ordinary way, is from Jerusalem and the kingdom below
These things may be taken figuratively as two women representing two Covenants
One Covenant is from Mount Sinai, and bears children who are to be slaves
This is Hagar, now Hagar stands for Mount Sinai
And corresponds to the present City of Jerusalem
Because she is in slavery with her children
But Jerusalem above is free, and she is our mother
And what does Scripture say? “Get rid of the slave woman and her son
For the slave woman’s son will never share in the inheritance with the free woman’s son”
Therefore, brothers and sisters, we are not children of the slave woman
But of the free woman
So you are no longer a slave, but a Son, and since you are a Son
God has also made you an heir

Who is, who was, and who is to come?
Is the War of Armageddon between two kingdoms
We are the Son born by the power of the Spirit, from Jerusalem and the Kingdom Above
The slave son is born in the ordinary way, is from Jerusalem and the kingdom below
Jesus said I will open my mouth in parables
I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world
And in John 10:34 Jesus says, “Is it not written in your Law, I have said you are Gods?”
If he called them Gods whom the word of God came
Then we are children and Sons of God
Now if we are children, then we are heirs of God, and co-heirs with Christ
For you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it
And the dwelling of God will be with men, because God is with us
And the Holy Spirit, who is the God of Gods, will reclaim the Lord
And by the power of the Holy Spirit, Jesus is both Lord and Christ
Therefore, John and Abraham are not the Christ
They were mediators, a mediator, however does not represent one party and God is one
And John confesses he is not the Christ, and Jesus says before Abraham I am
And John clearly says he who comes after me surpasses me, because he was before me
For the bride belongs to the bridegroom who is Jesus
And it is God Almighty who is the Alpha and Omega
The First and the Last, the Beginning and the End
For the one who comes from Heaven and the Kingdom Above is above all
And the one who comes from the earth, belongs to the earth
And speaks as one from the earth
The son of man is from the earth, in the kingdom of heaven below
Jerusalem Above is free, and she is the mother of the Son of God
Jerusalem below is Hagar, she is in slavery, and her children persecute the Son of God
Hagar is the woman in Revelation identified as Babylon
Hagar sits upon the scarlet beast’s images of God’s Word in the human ancestry of Christ
And the human ancestry of Christ can be against us
If the son of man images of the Word of God do not return to the City of God
For Christ was created in the image of God, and God is the head of Christ
The woman in the book of Revelation is your mind, and the scarlet beast is your body
The son of man is the beast who once was, now is not, and yet will come
In the old kingdom the son of man sits upon a throne, surrounded by 24 thrones
The woman is clothed with the sun (conscience) and moon (emotion) under her feet
The crown of 12 stars represents the Jew disciples worn on her head
The 12 tribes are the Gentiles under the altar that are sealed by the Living God
The devil attempts to divide our waters, tear our clothes, and break our bread
Making the one man into two, dividing God’s people into Gentile and Jew
Yet God is one, and King of the Gentiles and the Jews
When we as the Living God seal all our people in the House of Israel that is our body
They return back to the City of God, that is Heaven and Jerusalem Above
Whatever continues to accuse us is not a descendant of Abraham
They are accusers of God’s people and descendants of the father of lies

Who is, who was, and who is to come?
Is the War of Armageddon between two kingdoms
We are the Son born by the power of the Spirit, from Jerusalem and the Kingdom Above
The slave son is born in the ordinary way, is from Jerusalem and the kingdom below
Jesus said I will open my mouth in parables
I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world
John, Abraham and Christ metaphorically refer to your body
The temple and House of Israel you dwell within as an eternal Spirit and heir of God
And in the human ancestry of Christ are found the son of man images of your word
In the transfiguration your word as a Son of God becomes imaged as a son of man
And Peter, James and John are metaphors for the unique faces of the son of man
James is a metaphor for your conscience, the black horse in Revelation
Also measured as a scorching sun that spreads his tent over the ransomed Lambs
Those slain under the altar, to be purchased as gold refined by fire
Who are dressed in white robes to keep their supposed shameful nakedness covered
They are denied entry into the gates of the City of Jerusalem that is your mind
Kept in the darkness of your emotions, metaphorically measured as the Sea of Galilee
By a dragon that accuses the people of God day and night
John is a metaphor for your heart, the red horse in the book of Revelation
Measured as the moon of your emotions, baptizing God’s word in the River Jordon
John is also the false prophet and the beast of the seas whose fatal wound has been healed
For although Herod beheaded John, he still calls out from the wilderness inner rooms
And there are antichrists that go out from John, yet really do not belong to John
Who forcefully advance the old kingdom of heaven, as reeds shaken by the wind
They represent the slain Passover Lambs held for ransom by the devil
Sent out as a bondservants in chains, and as horns and heads from the image of the beast
And James and John are the two horns on the lamb that speaks like a dragon
Who is Satan and the beast of the earth, who calls down fire from heaven
For Satan fell like lightning from heaven, and Satan is the 8th king that belongs to the seven
Who circumcises the Lamb, the Word of God, on the lord of the Sabbath’s 8th day
Whom the Lord Jesus Christ will overthrow with the rod of his mouth
And the breath of his lips, the coming of this lawless devil 8th king
For God Almighty is going to call down fire from Heaven Above and devour the devil
For it is God Almighty who is the Alpha and Omega
The First and the Last, the Beginning and the End
You who are and who were, the Holy One
And only one of the four living creatures bring the wrath of God
And it is the White Horse, the Word of God, that brings the wrath of God
The red, black and pale horses are the three evil spirits that looked like frogs
The dragon, the beast and the false prophet, are the number of the beast 666
The sons of men are created in the image of God on the 6th day in Genesis
And the transfiguration when the Son of God is imaged as the son of man
Occurs on the 6th day and the 8th day
And the beast, which you saw, once was, now is not, and yet will come
Up out of the Abyss and go to his destruction
Because he once was, now is not, and yet will come
Is a beast 8th king that belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction
For following the seventh day when God Almighty rests in Genesis
There is an eighth day when God’s name is prefaced by the word Lord God
In Exodus chapter 6:2-4 this Canaan son of man lord confesses he is not God Almighty
The Canaan 8th day sabbath son of man lord appears as “El-Shaddai”
In ancient manuscripts and is a shadow, copycat, and identity thief
Of the name of the authentic God Almighty
It is the Spirit who is the Lord, not an eighth day sabbath son of man image of God’s word
And by the power of the Holy Spirit, it is Jesus who is both Lord and Christ
For the one who comes from Heaven and the Kingdom Above is above all
No longer will the Lamb Paul be struck down by whitewashed walls
Who are devout observers of the law, yet violate it all
They reverse the order of Jesus Christ into Christ Jesus
Putting ceremonial washings, and old order ritualistic baptisms
Ahead of the Word of God, by turning Paul into Saul
No longer will Simon Peter son of Jonah, or Simon Peter son of John
Circumcise the Lamb to detestable idols and demons, which are not God
Stealing the throne of the Holy Spirit, and suppressing the truth from the people
Their images of the beast will be made into a heap of rubble
By the authentic God Almighty’s blazing eyes of fire
And the Holy Spirit will reclaim the Lord from Satan
For no longer will Simon Peter bind and bound the Word of God
In the old order that is the kingdom of this world
For although they will make war against the Lamb, the Lamb will overcome them
Because the Lamb is Lord of the lords, and King of the kings
And with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers
For Jesus makes it clear to Peter, to put aside his tent in our bodies
When Jesus says to Peter in Matthew 16:23:
“Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me;
You do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men.”
For Simon Peter is the pale horse, also metaphorically measured as the son of Jonah
Who is in the belly of the whale, that is a metaphor for your body
The black, red and pale horses are faces of the son of man images of the beast
For only the White Horse is an exact representation of the Word of God
And not a copycat shadow gog sacrificed to demons which are not God
For Noah cursed the sabbath 8th king devil Canaan lord
Who masquerades as a lamb, yet is a dragon beast on the throne
Who sends false prophets in the name of John, that never really belonged to John
Who are sons of hell Pharisee hypocrites, who don’t go far from Pharaoh
When praying to their man-made detestable image idols
Who travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when he becomes one
They make him twice as much a son of hell as they are
And wearing the mask of Herod they slay James
And in images of the beast send him in the form of Jambres as the scorching sun
Opposing both Moses and the Truth as men of depraved minds
In an accusing conscience, that sets itself up on God’s Almighty’s throne
Exalting himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped
So that he sets himself up in God’s temple and proclaims himself to be God
When it is really the devil wearing the mask of Herod and beheading John
That is sending James in your conscience, and sending John in your heart
Who become the two horns on the beast of the earth
The beast who once was, now is not, and yet will come out of the Abyss to his destruction

Who is, who was, and who is to come?
Is the War of Armageddon between two kingdoms
We are the Son born by the power of the Spirit, from Jerusalem and the Kingdom Above
The slave son is born in the ordinary way, is from Jerusalem and the kingdom below
Jesus said I will open my mouth in parables
I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world
Therefore, let God be true, and every man a liar
So that you may be proven right when you speak, and prevail when you judge
For although we accept man’s testimony, the testimony of God is greater
Because it is the testimony of God Almighty, about his son
Now John provides a man’s testimony that is acceptable to God
By saying that a man can only receive what is given to him from heaven
So therefore he freely confesses he is not the Christ, and that he is also not the bridegroom John further provides a man’s testimony that is acceptable to God by not lying
And truthfully admitting the testimony of Jesus, the Son of God Almighty
Will always be greater than the testimony of John and men
Because Jesus is the Lord and Jesus is the Christ
And it is Jesus who is the true bridegroom of the bride New Jerusalem
For John and the sons of men are simply shadows, copies and images of the Word of God Who attend the bridegroom and wait and listen for him
And become full of joy when they hear the bridegrooms voice
And their joy will be complete when Jesus, who is the Word of God
And the new Covenant increase, and the Old Covenant, and the son of man images
That represents the human ancestry in Christ decrease
For the one who comes from above is above all; and the one who is from the earth
Belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth
The one who comes from heaven is above all
Therefore the testimony of God is greater than the testimony of man
Since the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God
And it is God who gives the Spirit without limit
For the Father loves the Son and has placed everything in his hands
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life
For God's wrath remains on him

So let God be true, and every man a liar
So that you may be proven right when you speak, and prevail when you judge
For although we accept man’s testimony, the testimony of God is greater
Because it is the testimony of God Almighty, about his son
Now John is an accusing liar and does not provide a man’s testimony
That is acceptable to God when the son of man images of John
In the human ancestry Christ attempt to take the kingdom of heaven forcefully
By being adulterers, murderers, idol worshipers, perjurers, robbers and identity thieves
Of the name God Almighty, and are therefore considered least in the kingdom of heaven For they went out from John, but they did not really belong to John
For if they had belonged to John, they would have remained with him
But their going showed that none of them really belonged to the faithful witnesses
In John’s human ancestry of Christ because they should have returned to God Almighty
In the righteousness that comes by faith and grace
For we have a true anointing from the Holy One, that is God Almighty
Whose testimony is always greater than that of man, and all of us know the truth
And no lie comes from the truth. Who is the liar?
It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ, and such a man is the antichrist
He denies the Father and the Son, and no one who denies the Son has the Father
Whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also
So see that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you
If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father
And this is what he promised us — even eternal life.
So contend with your faith, and be on your guard
For those who are trying to lead you astray
The anointing you received from God Almighty by the power of the Holy Spirit
Remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you
For this anointing teaches you about all things since it is real, not counterfeit
So remain in it and it will guide you.

Who is, who was, and who is to come?
Is the War of Armageddon between two kingdoms
We are the Son born by the power of the Spirit, from Jerusalem and the Kingdom Above
The slave son is born in the ordinary way, is from Jerusalem and the kingdom below
Jesus said I will open my mouth in parables
I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world
And no longer will the Word of God be sacrificed on an altar in front of the people
For the collection plate will now be for the Supper of God
And beasts and false prophets will be captured by the Spirit who is the Lord
Devils will be first be given to a naked Noah
Who cursed their 8th king sabbath devil Canaan lord
And then in keeping with God’s will, and in honor of James
The armies of the authentic Lord God Almighty
Who serve the God of Gods, that is the Holy Spirit
And the whitewashed walls lied to the Holy Spirit with their hearts filled with Satan
And they tested the Spirit of the Lord by stealing Joseph’s land
Keeping the money for themselves, and lying to both men and God
And the devil and devil angels will be judged by the book of Isaiah Chapter 14:1-27
On the great Day of Judgment spoken of in the book of Jude
For they were never angels of the Lord and light, or servants of righteousness
And their end will be what their actions deserve
And no longer will Paul be a prisoner in chains, or serve the devil as a bondservant
And no longer will John be slain as a Lamb held for ransom
And no longer will our souls be held captive by the devil
To be purchased as gold refined by fire, kept in white robes and slain under an altar
For John will be freed from his sins, by a robe dipped in blood
By the White Horse, that is the Word of God, who wears fine linen, white and clean
And not the twisted goat haired linen of foreign detestable idol man-made gogs
And the Lamb will be victorious, because the Lamb is the Word of God
And those with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers
For I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a White Horse
Whose rider is called Faithful and True, with justice he judges, and makes war
His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns
He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself
He is dressed in a robe that is dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God
The armies of heaven were following him, riding on White Horses
And dressed in fine linen, white and clean
Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations
He will rule them with an iron scepter
He treads the winepress of the wrath of God Almighty
On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written:
King of kings and Lord of lords
And the beast will be captured, and with him the false prophet
And along with Lucifer, Satan, the devil and his angels
Who deceived the people by falsely stealing Joseph’s land
Who lied to the Holy Spirit, men and God
Who tested the Spirit of the Lord with their hearts filled with Satan
Will be thrown into the lake of burning sulfur
Where they will be tormented day and night for ever and ever
Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life
As clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God
And of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city
On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit
Yielding its fruit every month
And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations
No longer will there be any curse
The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city
And his servants will worship him
They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads
There will be no more night
They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun
For the Lord God will give them light
And they will reign for ever and ever
“Behold, I am coming soon!
My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done
I am the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End”
“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches
I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star”
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!”
And let him who hears say, “Come!”
Whoever is thirsty, let him come
And whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life
He who testifies to these things says
“Yes, I am coming soon”
Amen, Come Lord Jesus
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people
Amen

Many of the Gospel References for “The Book of Revelation Ver 2” are the same as my song “Observers and Obeying Law”, also see my notes and sketches on the metaphoric interpretation of the Gospel and the lyrics and references that are included in all my song posts.
(Please note also that a Jew and Israelite in a metaphoric interpretation of the Gospel is not a person of Jewish heritage, it is a metaphor for a part of all of us that is a Jew within and another part of us that is a Gentile within -see Romans 2:28-29- and how these two parts become one in Ephesians 2:14-22, Ezekiel 37:15-17 and Romans 3:27-31.
