The Way I See It

Matthew 1 has Joseph's lineage. The names can be grouped into 14s. Each 14 matches a pair of sevens in Revelation 1.

Matthew 1:17 matches Revelation 1:20 because the generations are human beings and in Revelation the objects are angelic or human beings.

Matthew 1:18-4:15 matches Revelation 2-3 because the seven events in Matthew end with something audible happening and each church of Revelation has "He that hath an ear..." near the end. The only Matthew passage where this is not obvious is the wise men. The warning they got in Greek means a spoken warning.

Matthew 4:16-25 matches Revelation 4. In Matthew the word net is used three times. In Revelation the phrase "round about the throne" appears three times.  Net is first singular then plural two times . The throne first has a singular rainbow then plural elders and beasts. You may notice a match of a more general nature.

Matthew 5-7 matches Revelation 5 by the word "open". Both passages end with strong positive emotional responses to Jesus.

Matthew 8-9 matches Revelation 6 three times. Show me what you got.

Matthew 10 matches Revelation 7. It's a gimme.

Matthew 11 matches Revelation 8. This only recently became apparent. Matthew 11:15 matches Revelation 8:6. You think this would be obvious to the most casual of observers, but somehow it has illuded us for two thousand years. I find this fascinating and am baffled that no one else does. Why the fluke doesn't anyone see this?

Matthew 12 matches Revelation 9-12
Matthew starts with the religious leaders apposing Jesus, matches Revelation 9.
In Matthew 12:29- Jesus makes several statements , matches Revelation 10 thunders.
In Matthew Jesus mentions belly, Revelation 10 John's belly.
In Matthew are men of Nineva and Queen of the South, in Revelation 11 two witnesses.
In Matthew Jesus's mom comes to see Him, in Revelation 12 Jesus's mom is the literal and figurative theme.

Matthew 13 matches Revelation 13. The Kingdom of Heaven and Satan's kingdom on earth.

Matthew 14-15 matches Revelation 14
Jesus feeds two crowds in Matthew and God's wrath is associated with wine twice. Jesus walks on water and sits on water vapor.

Matthew 16-17 matches Revelation 15-16
Seeking a sign from heaven and a sign in heaven.
Gates of hell and Tabernacle opened.
Jesus to suffer and seven vials prepared.
Jesus makes six statements and is then transfigured; seven vials poured out.

Matthew 17:9-13 matches Revelation 17:1-7
The desciples understand that John the Baptist, who had his head chopped off, was Elijah. And that Jesus would suffer of them also.
In Revelation an angel tells John, not the Baptist, about the whore spilling the blood of saints.
Isn't this fun?

Matthew 17:14-27 matches Revelation 17:8-18:19
The man's son falls into fire and water. The woman that sits on the waters is burned with fire. Jesus rebukes the devil and it leaves. The ten kings make war with the Lamb and He overcomes them. Jesus tells the disciples that with faith they can move a mountain. The seven heads of the beast are seven mountains.

When Jesus says oh faithless and perverse generation He isn't talking about twenty years, it's this earth age. Those who's names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world wonder after the beast.

This next part only makes sense in the Greek.
Jesus and Peter go into town. The collectors ask Peter if they pay the two-drachma tax. Jesus tells Peter to go catch a fish. It will have a stater in it's mouth. A stater is a double di-drachma coin or a double double drachma.
In Revelation they will have double to them double for the evil done. Then throughout chapter 18 the phrase alas alas.

Matthew 18:1-19:15 matches Revelation 18:20-19:1
The Matthew passage opens and closes with children; the Revelation passage with saints rejoicing. Near the beginning of each is the millstone. There are a couple of other things, but I call the Matthew passage the numbers between the children.

Matthew 19:16-21:5 matches Revelation 19:2-19:10
These match up in several chunks. Two chunks of Matthew match one verse in Revelation. The rest is intuitively obvious to the most casual of observers.

Matthew 21:6-18 matches Revelation 19:11-22:1 Let's plod along through this one. We wouldn't want to gallop past and miss anything.
Verse 6 may not go with this. That's ok. Jesus is riding a humble donkey and a mighty war horse.
Next we see people in Jerusalem laying their garments before Jesus, and in Revelation they wear white linens. If their garments got dirty on the ground, now their linens are clean.
Matthew verse 12 matches next up to the word moneychangers. This goes with Revelation verses 15-16. Jesus drives them out of the temple and elsewhere He drove them out with a whip of sorts. In Revelation he smites them and rules with a rod of iron.
Next are the doves and the ravenous carnivorous fowls.
All too easy. -Darth Vader
The den of thieves and the bottomless pit.
And moving right along.
Next Jesus healed all that came to Him in the temple and the first resurrection.
Matthew 21:15-16 and Revelation 20:6-9 In Matthew there is a mix of good and bad people in the temple. Satan is allowed to work through people inside Jerusalem and the temple. In Revelation the good are in the holy city and the bad are destroyed by fire outside the walls. Satan is only allowed to work outside Jerusalem before the final destruction of evil doers.
Then Jesus stays in Bethany. The two definitions of this are house of dates or house of misery. This might have something to do with the lake of fire, but Jesus never goes there. It might match up to the beginning of chapter 21 and the preparation for the eternity.
Then Jesus returns into the city. Obviously this matches chapter 21.
Then Jesus hungered, which matches the water of Revelation 22:1 for the thirsty. The thirsty part comes from Revelation 21:6.

Matthew 21:19- matches Revelation 22:2-3
Blaa blaa blaa tree blaa blaa blaa fruit blaa blaa blaa leaves blaa blaa blaa blaa blaa blaa.
Then Jesus curses the fig tree and kills it, but in the eternity there is no more curse. You just gotta love this stuff.
Then the religious leaders question Jesus' authority and He asks them about John the Baptist. In Revelation no one questions Jesus and John saw these things. This match ends on the two Johns names.
Then Jesus gives the two sons parable and John is told he is a fellow servant for the second time.

Matthew 21:33-22:14 matches Revelation 22:10-14
33 starts with "hear another parable", but the literal translation is "hear a similar parable". I think it means the next two, not similar to the two sons. The next two parables involve bad guys killing good guys and then the good guys kill the bad guys. You decide. Anyway this somehow matches Revelation, not sure. Matthew ends with a guy thrown out and Revelation ends with people coming in. All very complicated.

Matthew 22:15-40 matches Revelation 22:15
Six individuals or groups approach Jesus to trip Him up. There are six types in Revelation. The last person to tempt Jesus is a lawyer. They love and make a lie.
Then the name David comes up in both books. What a coincidence.

Matthew 23:1-24:4 matches Revelation 22:17-20
That's the way I see it.

Revelation 22:21
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Matthew 13
[18] Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
[19] When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
[20] But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
[21] Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.
[22] He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
[23] But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
[24] Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
[25] But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
[26] But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
[27] So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
[28] He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
[29] But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
[30] Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
[31] Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:
[32] Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.
[33] Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
[34] All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:
[35] That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.
[36] Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
[37] He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
[38] The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
[39] The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
[40] As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
[41] The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
[42] And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
[43] Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
[44] Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
[45] Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
[46] Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
[47] Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
[48] Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
[49] So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
[50] And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
[51] Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.
[52] Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.
[53] And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence.

Revelation 13
[11] And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
[12] And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
[13] And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
[14] And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
[15] And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
[16] And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
[17] And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
[18] Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.


Matthew 13
1] The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.
[2] And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.
[3] And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
[4] And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
[5] Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:
[6] And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
[7] And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:
[8] But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.

Revelation 13
[1] And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
[2] And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
[3] And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
[4] And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
[5] And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
[6] And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
[7] And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
[8] And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.


Matthew 12
43] When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
[44] Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
[45] Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

Revelation 11
[16] And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,
[17] Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.
[18] And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
[19] And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.


Matthew 12
[38] Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.
[39] But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:
[40] For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

Revelation 10
8] And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.
[9] And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
[10] And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
[11] And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.


Matthew 12
[33] Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
[34] O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
[35] A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
[36] But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
[37] For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

Revelation 10
[5] And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
[6] And sware by him that liveth for ever 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:
[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.
