There are some items touched briefly on in the book but here completed or else examined again.

The Law Broke
In the book I mention that the believer is not under the condemnation of the law because it unjustly condemned the one that fulfilled it (Christ). Is it that simple? There is no obvious verse for that, can it be inferred? I mention here that any such inference is not made to indicate something so important (as our salvation in Christ) to be that prosaic, but that same outcome is justified by Christ in fulfilling the same law. If the law be good, how can it fail?

A Literal Hell Or A Literal Judgement?
Why does the New Testament appear to teach of a damnation of eternal torment as "Hell" when it also teaches in the gospel that this is only a rejection or relegation to "outer darkness"? Christ Himself teaches in the parable of Lazarus and the rich man that eternal torment appears to wait for everyone unsaved. Is this the case? The Revelation would, once interpreted, indicate only rejection. Whilst Christ teaches in parables, He also teaches that He teaches in parables so that those that would follow Him as if only lukewarm would be turned away, "Lets I heal them". Christ, has not chosen the lukewarm, and would prefer they turned away altogether. For to follow Christ, one must "eat His flesh and drink His blood".

The Image A Statue?
The image to the beast is commonly thought to be a statue, but in the book "Seven Eyes Open" the interpretation of the text states this is an overlay or projection of the beliefs of the believer to establish for Satan a structure - the image of the churches of revelation in false doctrine, the scarlet beast itself - in a corrupt model of a man: the "Son of perdition". This difference is reconciled quite easily in this page.

Did You Ever Stop To Think?
There are a few parts of the New Testament which are alarming in their prophetic simplicity. Though these are not "great truths" they perhaps support the book's interpretation on the word pictures and also the native simplicity of the imagery recorded by John. Jesus' own words often fall on deaf ears when people misread something so simple, for "It couldn't really mean that, could it?" and did you ever stop to think it could be something so simple?

Like Unto An Emerald
So, the description of the throne scene is such that the rainbow that surrounds the throne is likened to an emerald. Why? In the lexicon that I employ in the book, gems are riches that are already bought and paid for or already supplied by God: "treasures in heaven" if you like.
