The Gospel of Christ.

1 Cor 1:6 (http://bibledatabase.org/cgi-bin/bib_search/bible.cgi?BIBLE=48&BOOK=46&CHAP=1&SEARCH=jesus king lord&Read=Read&FIRST=OK&HV=6) Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:

1 Cor 2:1 (http://bibledatabase.org/cgi-bin/bib_search/bible.cgi?BIBLE=48&BOOK=46&CHAP=2&SEARCH=jesus king lord&Read=Read&FIRST=OK&HV=1) And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.

2 Cor 1:12 (http://bibledatabase.org/cgi-bin/bib_search/bible.cgi?BIBLE=48&BOOK=47&CHAP=1&SEARCH=jesus king lord&Read=Read&FIRST=OK&HV=12) For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.

2 Thess 1:10 (http://bibledatabase.org/cgi-bin/bib_search/bible.cgi?BIBLE=48&BOOK=53&CHAP=1&SEARCH=jesus king lord&Read=Read&FIRST=OK&HV=10) When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

2 Tim 1:8 (http://bibledatabase.org/cgi-bin/bib_search/bible.cgi?BIBLE=48&BOOK=55&CHAP=1&SEARCH=jesus king lord&Read=Read&FIRST=OK&HV=8) Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;

19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. and Just what does this mean?

According to Scofield: "Although men, cities, and nations have a large part in Biblical prophecy, its chief subject is a Person, the Lord Jesus Christ. As John was reminded at this climactic point when he was about to see the appearance of Christ in glory, "the testimony of [witness concerning] Jesus is the spirit of prophecy." All the prophetic themes are to be studied with care, but never in such a way as to obscure the fact of the centrality of Jesus Christ."

Prophecy is a very confusing thing, for sure. There's a wonderful book titled "Every Prophecy of the Bible" by John F. Walvoord. It would probably be very helpful in your study.

God Bless.

Well I think most feel Jesus will be in bodily form in eternity and we will worship him but this is not the case. He is God and will be as God as he was before he was flesh. And correctly stating we are to worship God.

Interestingly John appearently thought this angel was Jesus for he bowed down to him not once but twice. I would think John smart enough not to bow down to any angel but an angel claiming he comes quickly, and is the alpha and omega. ie the angel of the Lord.

Re 22:6 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to show unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.

Re 22:7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

Re 22:8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which showed me these things.

Re 22:9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

Re 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

Re 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

The testimony of Jesus is the church as Jesus Christ is the testimony of God. The book of Revelation represents the revealed Christ and the testifying church. Christ is the Witness of God(1:5), the testimony and the expression of God. The church is the testimony and the expression of Christ. As such the church is the reproduction of the tesimony and the expression of God in Christ.

The lampstands in chapter1, the great multitude of the redeemed in ch.7, the bright woman with her man-child in ch.12, the harvest with its firstfriuts in ch.14, the overcomers on the sea of glass in ch.15, the bride ready for marriage in ch.19, and the New Jerusalem in chs.21 and 22 are all the testimony of Jesus. This testimony of Jesus is the spirit- the substance, reality, the disposition, the characteristic- of the prophecy of this book.

John's gospel is a book of signs signifying how Chrsit came to be our life to produce the church, His bride. John' Revelation is a book of signs showing how Christ is now caring for the church and how He is coming to judge and possess the earth and bring the church, His bride into God's purpose.

Revelations 19:10 Then I fell at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, "Don't do that! I am a fellow slave with you and your brothers who have the testimony about (F240 - "or to") Jesus. Worship God, because the testimony aboutF241 Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."

The testimony could be "about" Jesus or "concerning" Jesus... I guess I'm not sure what your question or concern is about. The "testimony about Jesus" is basically the gospel - the good news message we were given to share with the world concerning Christ and His death in our place.
