It is in that vision that we read about Him Who is “like unto the Son of man”, and the majestic description of the Lord in all His glory as He walks among seven golden candlesticks. What does all of that glittery language mean?

    John writes the book of Revelation to testify “to everything he saw” of the testimony given to him by Jesus Christ.

    states "Let women learn in quietness.... I do not permit women to teach or to exercise authority over a man... she is to remain quiet." In order to best understand Paul 's statement, we must focus on three words which are "quietness (ἡσυχίᾳ),"permit (ἐπιτρέπω)," and "exercise authority (αὐθεντεῖν)." "Quietness... (γυνὴ ἐν ἡσυχίᾳ μανθανέτω ἐν πάσῃ ὑποταγῇ:)" Philip Payne suggests that for this reason, Apostle Paul has commanded a woman to learn in quietness, instead of professing false godliness…
