Revelations,A Study.Section 7. Chapter 8:1 thru 10:7 The Seventh Seal opened andrepparttar seven trumpets start sounding. Revelations is not written in sequence. We have Seven Seals, Seven Trumpets and Seven Viles ofrepparttar 144334 wrath of God. If we put a seal beside a trumpet and addrepparttar 144335 Vile we haverepparttar 144336 complete sequence of events. The reason it was written in this manner was to get Gods Children to compare scripture with scripture. The Seventh Seal if you notced when opened, ushers in a time of silence. This is to introducerepparttar 144337 first trumpet. Rev 8:2 And I sawrepparttar 144338 seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. To show you a sequence of events lets just takerepparttar 144339 first of all three and put them together. The First Seal; Rev 6:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. The First Trumpet; Rev 8:7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast uponrepparttar 144340 earth: andrepparttar 144341 third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. The First Vile; Rev 16:2 Andrepparttar 144342 first went, and poured out his vial uponrepparttar 144343 earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore uponrepparttar 144344 men which hadrepparttar 144345 mark ofrepparttar 144346 beast, and upon them which worshipped his image. The seal is openedrepparttar 144347 trumpet is sounded andrepparttar 144348 vile is poured out. When looking at all seven in sequence we seerepparttar 144349 total picture of what is happening. These next 2 verses show thatrepparttar 144350 prayers ofrepparttar 144351 saints are answered quickly. Rev 8:4 Andrepparttar 144352 smoke ofrepparttar 144353 incense, which came withrepparttar 144354 prayers ofrepparttar 144355 saints, ascended up before God out ofrepparttar 144356 angel's hand. Rev 8:5 Andrepparttar 144357 angel tookrepparttar 144358 censer, and filled it with fire ofrepparttar 144359 altar, and cast it intorepparttar 144360 earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.[Ref; Rev 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell onrepparttar 144361 earth?] This is literial.Rev 8:7 The first Trumpet, hail, fire & blood.

This is literial.Rev 8:10 The third Trumpet, and there fell a {great star} [spirit] from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell uponrepparttar 144369 third part ofrepparttar 144370 rivers, and uponrepparttar 144371 fountains of waters; The word,Wormwood, means bitter sorrow. [Jer_9:15,Lam_3:15; Lam_3:19; Deu_29:18; Pro_5:4; Amo_5:7, rendered "hemlock"; Greek apsinthos; Rev 8:11 Andrepparttar 144372 name ofrepparttar 144373 star is called Wormwood: andrepparttar 144374 third part ofrepparttar 144375 waters became wormwood; and many men died ofrepparttar 144376 waters, because they were made bitter. This is literial. Rev 8:12 The fourth Trumpet, The third part ofrepparttar 144377 sun, moon, and stars; were darkened, andrepparttar 144378 day shone not for a third part of it, andrepparttar 144379 night likewise.

Revelations a StudySection 8. Chapter 10:1 thru 11:19, Measuring ofrepparttar temple of God, The Little Book, The 2 witnesses. The Seven Thunders , any speculation onrepparttar 144333 words spoken of byrepparttar 144334 seven thunders would be useless, it is not for us to know. Rev 10:5 thru 10:7,repparttar 144335 end of physical time. Time was created for man and not for God. Rev 10:7 is future prophecy. Rev 10:8 thru Rev 10:10 Is speaking ofrepparttar 144336 Truth ofrepparttar 144337 Scripture, torepparttar 144338 human body it is bitter but torepparttar 144339 spirit of acceptance it is sweet. John at this point was told that he was to continue to spreadrepparttar 144340 gospel. Rev 11:2 Butrepparttar 144341 court which is withoutrepparttar 144342 temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given untorepparttar 144343 Gentiles: andrepparttar 144344 holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. [3 years and 6 mths.] We are starting to get closer torepparttar 144345 explanation ofrepparttar 144346 Seven year peace treaty with Israel andrepparttar 144347 Antichrist. The two witnesses, [the two olive trees,repparttar 144348 two candlesticks.] Rev 11:3 thru Rev 11:6 is an explanation ofrepparttar 144349 two witnesses and their power forrepparttar 144350 time alloted them ,their power and their witness for God. Rev 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. [3.48 years.] Rev 11:4 These arerepparttar 144351 two olive trees, andrepparttar 144352 two candlesticks standing beforerepparttar 144353 God ofrepparttar 144354 earth. The testimony ofrepparttar 144355 two witnesses will not be stoped nor altered by any human or spirit. Now there are two intrepretations ofrepparttar 144356 Idenity ofrepparttar 144357 two witnesses. Enoch and Elijah [Gen 5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.] Enoch never saw death. Elijah, 2Ki 2:11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.Elijah never saw death. The other theory includes Moses which had a physical death, but is said to have called down fire from heavan. Elijah and Moses. [Isa. 52:7,Isa. 44:26-28, Isa.52:8-9; 62:6-7, Ezek. 40-48] This is literial, Rev 11:5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. {Isa 29:6 Thou shalt be visited ofrepparttar 144358 LORD of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, andrepparttar 144359 flame of devouring fire.}{Isa 30:30 Andrepparttar 144360 LORD shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall shewrepparttar 144361 lighting down of his arm, withrepparttar 144362 indignation of his anger, and withrepparttar 144363 flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones.} {Joe 2:3 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth:repparttar 144364 land is asrepparttar 144365 garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.}
