The sentence in Revelaiton 22:15 is not a command or an imperative, but
simply a statement,
and I paraphrase it, "no dogs will be in heaven." I take this to mean
people with a doglike spirit as seen in the following Scriptures. : Isaiah
59:10,11, Matthew 15:21-28 and Mark 7:24-30,
Matthew 7:6 and Philippians 3:2. If you would like a one page study with
every reference to dogs in the Old and New Testaments in sentence form in
outline form with the Hebrew and Greek words, etc. then please send me $1.00
and I will mail it to you. Sincerely, T. Upham

> Now, in 21:27 it is said nothing impure will enter the city nor liars...
