To conclude, in the time of trials that come upon the whole world (Rev 3:10), “the mystery of 7 stars” shows and lets us know about the mysteries through the one who reads, the first messenger of Jesus in the revelation times. And those who keep the words of this prophecy, the brides of Jesus written in the book of life, will become the messengers of Jesus with the Guardian Angel, and serve as the lamp that brightens the churches of this world, with the identical words of prophecy.(Rev 1:3/Am 3:7).Also, they together begin as the messengers of Jesus with partnering disciples and then become new readers who read along with the mentor who reads the same words of prophecy through online or off line.When Jesus came to the earth for the first time as the son of man, Peter, James and John who were the foremost disciples were all networkers using fishing nets, but in the end times, the networkers of God with the use of the Internet are urgently needed.To be a reader as the bride of Jesus at once, all you have to do is putting God as the priority in your life.(Mt 4:18-22)

“The LORD doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel. He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.

He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their name            <Ps 147:2-4>

 The key to unlock “the mystery of 7 stars” lies in separating and understanding the meanings of the number 7 and stars in “7 stars”.

 Looking at “seven” and “stars” separately, “seven” represents God’s seven Spirits that act as seven eyes of Jesus (Zec 4:10/Rev 5:6/Rev 4:5), and “stars” symbolizes people who lead many to righteousness as prophesied in Daniel, which refers to the crown of 12 stars (Dan 12:1-3/Rev 12:1). Thus, “the mystery of 7 stars” predicts the start of the open revelation as well as the appearance of the numbered new mankind symbolized by the crown of 12 stars, which refers to the new network of Jesus’ 12 disciples. (Ps 147:2-4/Rev 21:16-17)

<Php 4:1>

1.  Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.

<1Th 2:19-20>

19 For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?

20 For ye are our glory and joy.

<Rev 12:1-5>

1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

3  And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

First of all, the seven stars to which the seven Spirits of God work, “the servants” in Revelation 1:1 who are the brides of Jesus and the recipients of Revelation, become the messengers of Jesus being sent to each church and witness the words of Holy Spirit with the Guardian Angel.

Here, the seven golden candlesticks symbolizes, as seven candlesticks are lighted by the same olive oil, that Jesus works in each of the churches with the identical words of revelation.

<Mt 25:1-13>

1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:

But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

6  And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

<2Pe 3:7>

7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

< Heb 13:8>

8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

The end times symbolize the consolidated spirituality of the Holy Spirit and, by making all situations to be viewed in the identical perspective of Jesus, mark the special occasion in which our spiritual vision is opened by the work of the seven Spirits that emanate a strong light, which is seven times greater, over the whole world. (Rev 1:4-6/Rev 4:5)

Here, the seven Spirits are representing the complex activities of the Holy Spirit’s seven spiritualities which are 1)the Spirit of the Lord, 2)the Spirit of wisdom and 3)of understanding, 4)the Spirit of counsel and 5)of power, 6)the Spirit of knowledge and 7)of the fear of the Lord  in the end times.(Isa 11:1-2)

Also, the seven Spirits and the seven stars are, along with the seven horns described in Revelation 5:6, form the combination of “777”, which is a very crucial, symbolic number.

<Isa 11:1-2>

1. And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:

2. And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;

<Rev 5:6>

6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

<Ps 148:13-14>

13 Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.

14 He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints; even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye the LORD.

<1 Sa 2:10>

10 The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the LORD shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed.

<Eze 36:25-27>

25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.

26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them

The fundamental principle of God’s network of the new mankind formed by 12 and its multiples constituting the kingdom and the priests of God in the Revelation times is based on the idea that the 12 partnering disciples written in the book of life (1 Th 2:19-20/Php 4:1-4), which is symbolized by the crowns of the twelve starts in Revelation 12:1, become the stars numbered and called by God by their names (Ps 147:2-4), teach the words of the open revelation to those to be evangelized, maintain loving relationships and constitute the brides community of Christ to form one large spiritual family.

<2 Ti 2:2>

2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.

<1 Ti 5:17>

17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.

<Gal 6:6-10>

6. Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.

7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

8. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

9. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

10. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. 

<1 Th 2:13>

13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

<Col 1:3-6>

3. We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,

4. Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints,

5. For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;

6. Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth:

<1 Co 12:28-30>

28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues

29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?

30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?

Therefore, as brides of Jesus (Rev 21:9/Isa 5:26) who follow the heart (Php 2:5) and appearance of Jesus Christ (Gal 4:19), they are the ones who open their spiritual vision (Rev 5:6), listen to the identical words of revelation of Jesus Christ, and achieve the law of Christ by taking burdens of one another (Gal 6:2). Participating in the divine nature of God (2 Pe 1:4), which is the final step of His plan of creating mankind, they are the sons of God who add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love (2 Pe 1:7). Also, they are believers who work together to achieve goodness(Ro 8:28) and join in the first resurrection and eternal life.(Rev 21:7/ Ro 9-25:28/Mt 5:3-12)
