The Angel Of The Church Overcomes Laodicea

The eighteenth chapter concerns the great city (of all worldly commerce) and its destruction in the wrath of God. The first eight verses concern the judgement against her from the Lord.

Rev 18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
Rev 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
Rev 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
Rev 18:5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
Rev 18:6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
Rev 18:7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
Rev 18:8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

Compare the first two verses above with those of the start of chapter 10 - again, its our old friend the angel of the church we see here as come down from heaven.

Rev 10:1 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
Rev 10:2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
Rev 10:3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
Rev 10:4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.
Rev 10:5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
Rev 10:6 And swore by him that liveth forever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
Rev 10:7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

In chapter 18 we see the angel as having great power; (as the least of the flock, that may leave any habitation desolate behind him. Likewise no habitation is desolate within which he still dwells with the truth.) The earth is lightened by his glory - his strength in overcoming the churches (as witnessed by the utterances of the seven thunders) is as his glory (he leads many to righteousness, as Christ Himself described.) which shines as light to lead those of the flock towards Christ, as out from the earth (as four beasts and the "bow" devices which are made of the "third part of the stars of heaven").

Chapter 18 tells us he cries with a strong voice: clearly the same cry (made in chapter 10) - here of his overcoming the Laodicean conglomerate and finding the open door from within Philadelphia into the sabbath rest of Jesus Christ.

As the least of the flock, the angel has left the church behind as an obedient Son of God. with his departure every member of the flock behind him must as a necessity obey the voice of God in His commandment to "Come out of her" and "be ye separate" (ch18:v4)

The woman's sin (as that of the church) has reached unto heaven. It has fully encroached upon the remnant of Christ's Israel to the full length of 42 months (as the seven candlesticks with the deadly wound given the beast by Christ.) There is then either an open door into overcoming Laodicea, or the walk of the angel in the Holy Spirit is free and unhindered. i.e.

a b d c f g e
c f a e g d b
e g c b d a f
b d e f a c g
f a b g c e d
g c f d e b a
d e g a b f c

Either the angel's walk (first column) is outside the 42 months, or the top row (overcoming Laodicea) is outside the 42 months.

The woman of the vision is left utterly desolate before God's judgements, unfit as a body for Him to dwell within. The church has become a habitation of devils (every foul and detestable bird) and every unclean spirit, a cage for demons - clearly shown here as the ultimate end of the parable of the mustard seed growing into a great tree. Without the correspondence of the intersection of left hand triples to singletons in the right hand the tripling or the "branching" of the trees in view continues indefinitely. i.e. if:

unity = a = (b,d,f) (static in right hand) = (c,e,g) (static in left hand) = ((a,b,c),(a,d,e),(a,f,g)) (static in right hand as "branched") = a (unity in the right hand)

Then without the final correspondence of the intersection to "a" there would be a continual branching. Then we have the two olive trees together of Zechariah's vision as well as Jesus Christ are all "the branch", the servant of God. The lampstand is fed with the doctrine of the resurrection and life (that mix seamlessly as golden oil).

The voice from heaven asserts that the reward of the woman on the scarlet beast - (that great city) is to be double in measure to everything that the woman has done to persecute the saints of God. The two parts cut off the K4 ultrafilter equal to;

a = (a,b,c) = 1
b = (a,d,e)
c = (a,f,g)

Rather than the image of the Son in the octal which may well be;

g = (a,b,c)
c = (a,d,e)
e = (a,f,g)

Show that in the first case this K4 ultrafilter if sat within the octal is a contradiction to the GF(8) structure.

We desire that if a = 1 = (a,b,c) then the two parts {b,c} of the K4 ultrafilter sat at the right hand (sun octal) must be cut off, as if Jesus became bereft of the Father's Spirit as on the cross once more - the Lamb as "slain" before the throne.

Therefore the portion of the saints is as a single rest state of unity (a penny), whereas those parts not present in the Son (as unity) are cut off: yet in all respects the branching of the octals right and left parts shows that these two parts cut off indeed branch also, (three measures of barley for a penny)

In one hand the two parts of each triple in the K4 (as the top case) ultrafilter without including the intersection or unity element become four, also in the octal the two parts of each of the three triples forming a branch when taken without their intersection (unity) become six parts etc.

This branching is a continual inheritance outside of Christ. The continuing "doubling" (referenced in the passage twice in ch18:v6) is her due reward - like a continual turning away from the presence of God and a complete lack of rest. As written, "I swore in my wrath, they shall not enter into my rest." also, "there is no rest, unto the wicked."

Whereas the church as a corporation lived in relative safety as it gained its status as equal to kingdoms and great merchant houses, more in view (verse 7) is her claim that she is still God's wife, (as once was, now is not and yet is.) rather than the consort of the beast - whom is become as "Death" in a lifeless corporation, (the "is not") making her a widow of a lifeless corporation rather than the bride of the living God. Having traded her (presupposed by never given) inheritance in the Lord for an earthly stay of execution (a single bowl of soup) she idly remarks she shall see no sorrow - that she is indispensable to all, including God - though she is left desolate by His judgements.

Her plagues come in one single day (as one automorphism of one sun octal and (one ordering of) one seven cycle as from the angel of the church) with the commandment of God to remove from her His people: death, mourning and famine - i.e. to dwell without the life, resurrection and the bread of heaven in Jesus Christ. She is stripped of the righteousness that clothes the remnant in white.

She is then utterly burned with fire - The Holy Spirit with the K4 ultrafilter (as upon the left hand with fire) treads the winepress of the wrath of God between the left handed sea and the (sun octal) right hand of God they may no longer enter - i.e. they find only the one place (as of antichrist with just the four "bows" of the horsemen) within the four beasts (as singletons) about the throne to dwell without rest. As the K4 static group is cycled in the right hand (a plague of great hail) the "wine fat is pressed". The lamps of fire that are the Seven Spirits of God press the wine fat by moving the four beasts towards "closing up the sum" as movement of the K4 subgroup cycles relative to the octal underneath. Like a cloth being wrung of water with the "great strength" of God. (v8)

Likewise the ten kings burn the woman with fire - they as the image are the cause of the departure from the truth - the great falling away. In recognition the least of the flock departs and following a well-ordered principle the rest of the flock are drawn out, leaving their habitations behind them desolate. The Holy Spirit is as fire towards the spiritually "hot" of the remnant and has called them out. (Leaving the fire of the sun octal to burn (scorch as in the wrath) those behind them.) Some may be exiting the churches before the angel, some after: but as the least there is no cause for the angel to leave from the departure of any other man - no other reason than the calling out of Jesus Christ. He (the angel) truly overcame with a love of the truth found in Jesus Christ (rather than a commandment to exit a now desolated church) and the following judgement is just.
