“The intent of the followers of Balaam (v. 14), the Nicolaitans (vv. 6, 15), and Jezebel is the same: to deceive God’s people by persuading them to adopt a lifestyle that would allow them to be accepted in the world and to continue membership in the church. By accommodating themselves to the lifestyle that a guild required, the church members no longer had to fear being ostracized.” (Page 138)

“The traditional interpretation of the twenty-four elders is that this number is the total of twelve times two, namely, twelve Old Testament patriarchs and twelve New Testament apostles, the representatives of those redeemed by Christ.” (Page 187)

“Thus, instead of the church influencing society, the reverse had taken place, with society leading the church.” (Page 171)

“Jesus will remove the lampstand from its place, which means that as a congregation they will experience a complete spiritual blackout. A church ceases to be a church when it no longer serves its Master with genuine love and dedication. There is hard evidence that nominal Christianity dies a natural death within a generation or two and consequently disappears completely from the scene.15 The members may still come together, but they meet for social and not spiritual purposes.” (Page 116)

“In Revelation the contrast between ten and twelve is striking indeed. The number twelve describes the people of God; the number ten is linked to Satan, his followers, and his actions.” (Page 6)
