Revelations,A Study.Section 7.
Chapter 8:1 thru 10:7 The Seventh Seal opened and the seven trumpets start sounding. Revelations is not written in sequence. We have Seven Seals, Seven Trumpets and Seven Viles of the wrath of God. If we put a seal beside a trumpet and add the Vile we have the 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 introduce the first trumpet. Rev 8:2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. To show you a sequence of events lets just take the 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 upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
The First Vile; Rev 16:2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.
The seal is opened the trumpet is sounded and the vile is poured out. When looking at all seven in sequence we see the total picture of what is happening. These next 2 verses show that the prayers of the saints are answered quickly. Rev 8:4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.
Rev 8:5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the 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 on the earth?] This is literial.Rev 8:7 The first Trumpet, hail, fire & blood. Result; the third part of trees & green grass burnt up. This is literial.Rev 8:8 The second Trumpet, The third part of the sea became blood;[ Look closely, it doesnt say
