tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, norcrying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passedaway. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. Andhe said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said untome, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give untohim that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcomethshall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But thefearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, andwhoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part inthe lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." Imust with great care in this handbook, just as did the apostle, say "For I have notshunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God." Having been imprisonedthree times for the gospel for a short time, I write you my perspective in thishandbook.
As many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed
This book is all about worship. Rev 13:15 "And he had power to give life unto theimage of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and causethat as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed."

The Greatwhite throne judgment will clarify this. Rev. 20 declares: "…I saw a great whitethrone, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled
