1 And I saw in the right hand of the One seated upon the throne a scroll written within and on the reverse side, sealed tight with 7 seals.
2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice: Who is worthy to open the scroll and loose its seals?
3 But neither in heaven nor upon earth nor underneath the earth was there a single one able to open the scroll or to look into it.
4 And I gave way to a great deal of weeping because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or to look into it.
5 But one of the elders says to me: Stop weeping. Look! The Lion that is of the tribe of Judah, the root of David, has conquered so as to open the scroll and its 7 seals. (Revelation 5 NWT)
1 And I saw another strong angel descending from heaven, arrayed with a cloud, and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as the sun, and his feet were as fiery pillars,
2 and he had in his hand a little scroll opened. And he set his right foot upon the sea, but his left one upon the earth,
3 and he cried out with a loud voice just as when a lion roars. And when he cried out, the 7 thunders uttered their own voices.
4 Now when the 7 thunders spoke, I was at the point of writing; but I heard a voice out of heaven say: Seal up the things the 7 thunders spoke, and do not write them down.
5 And the angel that I saw standing on the sea and on the earth raised his right hand to heaven,
6 and by the One who lives forever and ever, who created the heaven and the things in it and the earth and the things in it and the sea and the things in it, he swore: There will be no delay any longer;
7 but in the days of the sounding of the 7th angel, when he is about to blow his trumpet, the sacred secret of God according to the good news which he declared to his own slaves the prophets is indeed brought to a finish.
8 And the voice that I heard out of heaven is speaking again with me and saying: Go, take the opened scroll that is in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the earth.
9 And I went away to the angel and told him to give me the little scroll. And he said to me: Take it and eat it up, and it will make your belly bitter, but in your mouth it will be sweet as honey.
10 And I took the little scroll out of the hand of the angel and ate it up, and in my mouth it was sweet as honey; but when I had eaten it up, my belly was made bitter.
11 And they say to me: You must prophesy again with regard to peoples and nations and tongues and many kings. (Revelation 10 NWT)
The scroll of Revelation5 we know is the whole bible in its current form. It is written on both sides because it has a literal visible meaning and a coded invisible meaning. So what then is the opened little scroll of Revelation10?
Well the first attempt at the present bible Canon was initially determined by the Roman Catholic Church possibly sometime in the 3rd century. Certainly the present bible was put together by a false church. This is a real problem because God cannot use a false church, they are not his servant anymore. We know that the RC church omitted Revelation because it condemned them as a harlot church riding the 7 hilled beast of Rome in chapter 17. So where is the real bible? Well that must have been collated by FDS2, the administration of the second true church, the Gnostics. It must have come into existence before the end of the presence in 159Tishri10. But the RC church persecuted TCC2 out of existence and destroyed all their writings as much as they could except for the Gnostic texts such a the Gospel of Philip hidden in a urn and re-discovered as part of the Nag Hamadi find made in Egypt in 1945. Daniel 12 says this...
4 And as for you, Oh Daniel, make secret the words and seal up the book [of Daniel. Daniel cannot seal up Genesis - he did not write that book], until the time of [the] end. Many will rove about, and the [true] knowledge will become abundant.
9 And he went on to say: Go, Daniel, because the words are made secret and sealed up until the time of [the] end. (Daniel 12 NWT)
So not only do we not understand the words until the time of the end but actually we do not get to see the book until the time of the end. In other words, there is a part of the book that we are yet to see. Revelation explains who the culprit is saying...
7 And, look! I am coming quickly. Happy is anyone observing the words of the prophecy of this scroll [the words of the prophecy of Revelation].
8 Well, I John was the one hearing and seeing these things. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel that had been showing me these things.
9 But he tells me: Be careful! Do not do that! All I am is a fellow slave of you and of your brothers who are prophets and of those who are observing the words of this scroll [we observe the words of the entire bible, which is this scroll]. Worship God.
10 He also tells me: Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this scroll, for the appointed time is near [Revelation is NOT a sealed up book. It can be interpreted. It is not time locked]. (Revelation 22 NWT)
18 I am bearing witness to everyone that hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll [The prophecy of Revelation in the scroll of the bible]: If anyone makes an addition to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this scroll;
19 and if anyone takes anything away from the words of the scroll of this prophecy [The scroll, the bible, containing the prophecy of Revelation], God will take his portion away from the trees of life and out of the holy city, things which are written about in this scroll. (Revelation 22 NWT).
So the bible itself (the scroll containing the prophecy of Revelation) is missing some scriptures. And the book of Revelation (the prophecy) has had things added to it. In particular 666 has been added to Revelation and 616 has been removed from the bible. For all the words of scriptures must be fulfilled...
12 For the word of God is alive and exerts power and is sharper than any two-edged sword and pierces even to the dividing of soul and spirit, and of joints and [their] marrow, and [is] able to discern thoughts and intentions of [the] heart. (Hebrews 4 NWT)
10 For just as the pouring rain descends, and the snow,
from the heavens and does not return to that place, unless it actually saturates the earth and makes it produce and sprout, and seed is actually given to the sower and bread to the eater,
11 so my word that goes forth from my mouth will prove to be. It will not return to me without results, but it will certainly do that in which I have delighted, and it will have certain success in that for which I have sent it. (Isaiah 55 NWT)
The one who takes away from the words of the scroll of the bible will get his portion taken away from the trees of life and out of the holy city. So plainly it is a true church administration that is to blame. This was not FDS3 or FDS4 and it would certainly not have been FDS2 since hardly any of their work survived the Catholic persecution. It was plainly FDS1, the Roman Catholic Church. Because we have codices dating back to the 4th century. Furthermore they determined what went in and what did not.
The part that we are yet to see, the part which FDS2 put in the bible but the fallen FDS1 took out, is the little scroll of Revelation10. Paul put is like this...
9 For we have partial knowledge and we prophesy partially
10 but when that which is complete arrives, that which is partial will be done away with. (1 Corinthians 13 NWT)
That which is complete is the entire bible Canon which arrived to TCC2. But it was destroyed by the darkness (the Roman Catholic Church) which did eventually overpower the light, although not at the time of John's writing his Gospel.
5 And the light is shining in the darkness, but the darkness has not overpowered it. (John 1 NWT)
Again in the time of the end of this world, that which is complete will arrive. We shall receive the missing scriptures that we need to complete the holy book. These are the little scroll, which is opened because by the time we get that scroll we will have broken all 7 seals of the present scroll.
There are several references in the Gospels to old testament scriptures that we do not appear to have. So it does look like some of the old testament may be missing (unless we cannot make the appropriate symbolic interpretation).
23 and came and dwelt in a city named Nazareth, that might be fulfilled the [word] spoken through the prophets: He will be called a Nazarene. (Matthew 2)
38 He that puts-faith in me, just as [Kaqwj] the Scripture has said, 'Rivers of living water will flow out of his belly.' [GLT says not in OT - is this in another missing OT chapter/book?] (John 7).
Then what was spoken through
was fulfilled, saying: And they took the 30
of the [one] having been priced, whom they priced from the
10 and they gave them for the field of the potter, according to what the Lord had stipulated to me [Jesus told Matthew this knowing that Jeremiah would be compromised?]. (Matthew 27).
Zechariah 11:12-13 has this quote. Perhaps it was in the original version of Jeremiah but we have lost some of that book (it has been removed?).
Now all the things that are being reproved are made manifest by the light, for everything that is being made manifest is light.
14 Wherefore he says: Awake, Oh sleeper, and arise from the dead, and the Christ will shine upon you. (Ephesians 5 NWT)
5 Or do you think that vainly the Scripture says, The spirit which has dwelt in us yearns to envy? [GLT say No OT passage] (James 4 GLT)
