Revelation 3:10 Is About The Roman World

Revelation was written to only 7 churches that existed during the time Revelation was written, therefore Revelation isn’t about our time period. Rev 3:10 proves the truth that Revelation is about the Roman world, not the planet.

Rev 1:1  [This is] the revelation of Yeshua Christ [his unveiling of the divine mysteries]. God gave it to Christ to disclose {and} make known to His [God’s] bond servants certain things which must shortly {and} speedily come to pass in their entirety.

Rev 1:4  John to the seven assemblies (churches) that are in Asia

Rev 1:11  Write promptly what you see (your vision) in a book and send it to the seven churches {which are in Asia}–to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.

Rev 3:7  to the angel (messenger) of the assembly (church) in Philadelphia write: These are the words of the Holy One, the True One, He Who has the key of David, Who opens and no one shall shut, Who shuts and no one shall open:

Rev 3:8  I know your [record of] works {and} what you are doing. See! I have set before you a door wide open which no one is able to shut; I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept [guarded, didn’t change] my Word and have not renounced {or} denied my name.

Rev 3:9  Take note! I will make those of the synagogue of satan [the adversary] who say they are Jews and are not, but lie–behold, I will make them come and bow down before your feet and learn {and} acknowledge that I have loved you.

Rev 3:10  Because you have kept [guarded, didn’t change] my word of patient endurance [have held fast the lesson of my patience with the expectant endurance that I give you], I also will keep [guard] you from the hour of trial (testing) which is about to happen to the whole world [the Roman world] to try those dwelling upon the earth [land].

The Greek word, “oikoumene” for the words “whole world” in Rev 3:10 is referring to the Roman world, not the planet. When that truth is understood, the reader can clearly see that Christ is not saying, “I will keep [guard] you from the hour of trial which is about to happen to everyone on the planet”, which shows the reader that Revelation is not talking about the planet, Revelation is talking about the Roman World that existed during the time that Revelation was written.

For many years I believed Revelation is about things that would happen during our time period because that is what the majority of people who claim to be Christian teach, but upon further study of Revelation it’s very clear that Revelation is not about our time period, that Revelation is about things that were about to happen during the time that the seven churches in Asia were alive.

The gospel had been preached to every creature under heaven by the time that Colossians was written, here is a link to my post that will show that the gospel has already been preached, that the tribulation has already happened, that the day of the Lord has already happened and that Revelation is not written about our time period https://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/2014/10/03/revelation-is-about-the-roman-world-not-the-planet/

In Revelation 21 “new Jerusalem” doesn’t have a physical temple, which means that the temple doesn’t have to be rebuilt in Jerusalem before Christ returns, here is a link to my post that will show that “new Jerusalem” that is spoken about in Rev 21 is happening now https://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/2014/10/05/in-revelation-jerusalem-doesnt-have-a-physical-temple/
