The Seven Apostolic Churches of Revelation

Editor's Note : December 13, 2016 AD : For any Evangelicals that read this, the point is, in fact, that there is one overriding criterica for determining the identity of these Seven Churches and that is that they existed from the beginning of the Church Age and will be in existence at the end of the Church Age.  Take that into consideration with the points below and you will see that this is the proper interpretation.

 

Ephesus - Jerusalem - James - Armenians

Smyrna - Alexandria - John Mark - Coptics

Pergamum - Babylon - Thomas - Chaldean

Thyatira - Canterbury - Joseph - Anglican

Sardis - Byzantium - Andrew - Grecian

Philadelphia - Antioch - Peter - Syriac

Laodacea - Rome - Paul - Latin

Notes :

1) The proof that Rome is represented by Laodacea can be seen in the fact that they just bought the Crystal Cathedral which no other Church could afford and this is something the Protestants lament to this day - i.e. that the Catholic Church is the wealthiest church in all Christendom. Well, maybe that's because they believe Good Works is a Sacrament that brings them God's Blessing, huh? As a Homeless person, I can assure you that no one does more good works then the Catholics. No one.

2) The connection of Thyatira to the Anglican can be seen in their use a Scepter (i.e. rod of iron) in each of their services and having ordained women priests (Jezebeel) and is specifically the Queen which is, literally, a mixed marriage as the Protestants call it with her being a Temporal Ruler and the Titular Head of the Anglican Church on earth at the same time. This would make the Idolatry of that letter to be Evolution which they gave to the World via the failed Divinity Student Darwhine. Ordination of Openly Gay people to the Priesthood teaches the servants that its ok to commit fornication.

3) There are four Cardinal Church after the four phases of the moon with each new division occurring every 500 years. Oriental at Chalcedon in 451 AD, Orthodox at 1000 AD and Anglican at 1500 AD with, of course, the Catholic Church from the beginning. These four are the "One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church" in its four (Cardinal Points) divisions which is symbolized by the Episcopal Crest pictured above to become the Sacred Heart of Christ where a human heart has four chambers.

4) The Nicolaitans of the Letters can easily be shown to be the Protestants. While I was a Baptist, I tried to make sense of this on four occasions but the story of Nicholas never matched the description given by the Protestants. When, however, I returned to the True Apostolic Churches it fell into place immediately. Nicholas rebelled against the Apostles just like the Protestants rebelled against the Apostolic Churches. The very name calls to mind a Revolution (Victory of the Laity) and there has only ever been one revolution in the Churches' History and that is the Protestant Reformation.

5) The Lord himself chose Jerusalem as the first Apostolic See for obvious reasons and then gave the power to bind and loose to the Apostles so that the choices they made for Apostolic Sees will be honored by the Spirit and thus they chose five out of seven which remain Apostolic Sees to this day see the arrival below for the proof.

6) The Apostolic See of Joseph of Arimathea - Y'shua's Uncle and one of the contenders for the position of the Throne of David after Y'shua's ascension - is assuredly the foundation for the Bishopric of Canterbury which dates, officially, to the 400's. Glastonbury (thus Canterbury) has the remains of Joseph of Arimathea who founded that Church thus qualifies it as an Apostolic See.  But, what really makes these Churches Apostolic is the Liturgy that is still extent today - each Liturgy contains at least one of the Signatures of the Apostle that founded it. The clearest example of this is the Armenians who, unlike all the other Apostolic Churches, do not mix water in the Eucharistic Wine - probably got that from James. The Anglicans are the only ones who, along with Joseph, see Y'shua personally as "Our Passover is sacrificed for us, therefore, let us keep the Feast" which he could not do that year cause he became 'unclean' when he took Y'shua down from the cross so Y'shua was, literally, Joseph's Passover that year. This, alone, would place the Anglican Church above all other contenders who use the Liturgy from one of the previous six Sees. Hence the 'missing' Pleiad is actually the Anglican Church originally founded in Glastonbury by Joseph.

 

7)  The Evangelicals are no longer part of the Bride having walked away from the Apostolic New Covenant however, since they re-embraced the Apostolic Premillennial Faith (unlike the Nicolaitans) they become the Children of the Bride Chamber and, as such, are the Watchers in Songs Five.


In the early centuries of Christianity there was only one Church. The affairs of the Church were managed by Bishops in their respective areas. There were also chief Bishops known as Patriarchs.

Writes Mar Yacob Manna, a Uniate Bishop of the Roman Church, in his book "Margy Peghyany" :

"Places where Patriarchates were organized by the holy Apostles are the following mothers of all cities; the first, Babylon. It is the metropolis, yea, the mother of all cities, and therefore was the Head of the Assyrian Kingdom. Then Alexandria, Antioch, Rome, and Constantinople."

Of these only Babylon was at that time outside the Roman Empire of the West. So the Babylon Patriarch soon came to be known as Patriarch of the East.

Hippolytus (AD 170-236), considered to have been one of the most learned Christian historians, puts names to the seventy disciples whom Jesus sent forth in Luke 10, includes Aristobulus of Romans 16:10 with Joseph, and states that he ended up becoming a pastor in Britain.

William of Malmesbury mentions Joseph's going to Britain in one passage of his Chronicle of the English Kings. He says Philip the Apostle sent twelve Christians to Britain, one of whom was his dearest friend, Joseph of Arimathea. William does not mention Joseph by name again, but he mentions the twelve evangelists generally. He claims that Glastonbury Abbey was founded by them; Glastonbury would be associated specifically with Joseph in later literature.

The accretion of legends round Joseph of Arimathea in Britain, encapsulated by the poem hymn of William Blake and did those feet in ancient time held as "an almost secret yet passionately held article of faith among certain otherwise quite orthodox Christians", was critically examined by A. W. Smith in 1989.  In its most developed version, Joseph, a tin merchant, visited Cornwall, accompanied by his nephew, the boy Jesus. C.C. Dobson made a case for the authenticity of the Glastonbury legenda.

Another legend, as recorded in Flores Historiarum is that Joseph is in fact the Wandering Jew, a man cursed by Jesus to walk the Earth until the Second Coming.
