Continuing on from Biblical End Times (Part 1), I will, now, take you through the 3 1/2 year tribulation and 3 1/2 year great tribulation periods which total the antichrist’s (7) year global rule on earth. During these periods, God will pour out His judgment upon the entire earth. As you will see, there are (7) seals, (7) trumpets, and (7) bowls of wrath that are interconnected in degrees of intensity, as God unleashes His full measure of wrath and judgment upon His creation. Note, however, that the Bride of Christ (the Church) is ‘raptured’ before the antichrist comes into power for the (7) year period in the book of Revelation. However, there will be thousands more of God’s elect children who have not repented nor reconciled their relationships with Holy God and, as a result, are left on earth to go through the great tribulation judgment. God uses the number ‘seven’ throughout His Holy Scriptures to mean perfect and/or complete. The (7) years of the antichrist’s rule precede the second coming of Christ, and the degrees of God’s wrath are foretold in the books of Isaiah, Ezekiel 38-39, Matthew 24, Daniel, and Revelation. The seven seals in the book of Revelation parallel several verses in Matthew 24. So, let’s get started with God’s perfect and complete judgment upon the earth. My comments are added in ‘blue‘.
I have typed the word ‘NEXT’ in between each section of interconnected events in Scripture to make it easier for you to follow along. Let’s begin.
Matthew 24:3 As He (Jesus) was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
Matthew 24:6-8 You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.
(WARS IN THE MIDDLE EAST: IRAN, IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN, SYRIA, EGYPT, ISRAEL, ETC., SHIFTING WEATHER PATTERNS, EARTHQUAKES, MUDSLIDES, VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS, FLOODS, TORNADOES, FAMINES, NUCLEAR POWERS. THERE WILL BE A ‘FUTURE’ NORTHERN AND SOUTHERN ALLIANCE OF COUNTRIES THAT WILL TRY TO CRUSH ISRAEL IN THE MIDDLE.)
Matthew 24:9-14 “Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved. This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.”
(PEOPLE ARE STILL BEING MARTYRED IN MANY COUNTRIES BECAUSE OF THEIR CHRISTIAN BELIEFS. WE HAVE MANY FALSE PREACHERS AT THE PULPITS, TODAY. A DEVIATION FROM THE ‘TRUTH’ IS TAKING PLACE AND FALSE DOCTRINE IS BEING TAUGHT TO APPEASE THIS SINFUL WORLD. MANY ANTICHRISTS (FALSE PROPHETS AND TEACHERS) WILL COME AND GO UNTIL THE END OF TIME. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT, THROUGH ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY, THE GOSPEL IS REACHING MOST OF THE WORLD THROUGH GOD’S MANY SERVANTS. NOTE THAT THE GOSPEL DOESN’T HAVE TO REACH THE ENTIRE WORLD FOR THE ‘RAPTURE’ TO TAKE PLACE!)
Matthew 24:24-25 For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you in advance.
(JESUS WARNED US, IN ADVANCE, OF THE ANTICHRIST AND FALSE PROPHET TO COME. THE ANTICHRIST IS SO CONVINCING THAT HE IS A MAN OF PEACE, EVEN THE ELECT COULD BE DECEIVED IF THAT WERE POSSIBLE. PRAISE GOD FOR HIS HOLY SPIRIT WHO TEACHES US HIS TRUTH AND GUIDES US WITH THE GIFT OF DISCERNMENT!)
The First Seal: Rider on White Horse (antichrist global leader-First 3 ½ years of tribulation) Revelation 6:2 I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.
(THIS IS THE ANTICHRIST WHO WILL RULE THE ENTIRE WORLD FOR 7 YEARS. RECENT NEWS CLIPS HAVE MENTIONED THE IDEA OF A GLOBAL LEADER. IN THE FIRST 3 ½ YEARS, HE WILL ‘DECEIVE’ THE NATIONS WITH A FACADE OF WORLD PEACE. NOTE THE VISION STATES A BOW WITH NO ARROW. HIS ARROW OF DESTRUCTION, WHICH IS HIS TRUE EVIL IDENTITY AND PERSONAL AGENDA, IS HIDDEN FOR THE FIRST 3 1/2 YEARS OF HIS GLOBAL RULE.)
The First Trumpet: Revelation 8:7 Then the first angel sounded his trumpet, and hail and fire mixed with blood were flung to the earth.
(THERE WILL BE CONTINUOUS WARS AND UPRISINGS ON EARTH AND THE ANTICHRIST WILL STEP IN AND BRING FALSE PEACE TO THE ENTIRE WORLD.)
The First Bowl of Wrath: Revelation 16:2 So the first angel went and poured out his bowl on the earth, and loathsome, malignant sores broke out on those who had the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.
(THE UNBELIEVERS WHO START TO TAKE THE MARK OF THE BEAST ON THEIR FOREHEAD OR RIGHT HAND WILL BE PUNISHED. MALIGNANCIES, MOST LIKELY, FROM THE USE OF CHEMICAL WEAPONS AND/OR BIOLOGICAL NERVE AGENTS, BREAK OUT ON THOSE WHO HAVE THE MARK OF THE ANTICHRIST.)
Matthew 24:15 “Therefore when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand)
(THIS SPEAKS OF THE TIME WHEN THE ANTICHRIST WORLD LEADER WILL PLUNDER ISRAEL, STAND IN, AND DESECRATE THE THIRD TEMPLE OF JERUSALEM (YET TO BE BUILT) AS A GOD UNTO HIMSELF.)
The Second Seal: Rider on Red Horse (antichrist global leader-Second 3 ½ years of great tribulation; War) Revelation 6:4 And another, a red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that men would slay one
another; and a great sword was given to him.
(THE TRUE EVIL NATURE OF THE ANTICHRIST IS REVEALED THROUGH RAVAGING, TORTURING, AND KILLING ANTICHRIST NON-FOLLOWERS.)
The Second Trumpet: Revelation 8:8 Then the second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned to blood.
(NUCLEAR DISASTER FALLOUT. JOHN MIGHT HAVE SEEN A MODERN DAY MISSILE ATTACK OR AN ASTEROID HITTING EARTH. WITH NUCLEAR INFUSION, THE EARTH’S COSMOS WILL BE AFFECTED AND THE EARTH’S AXIS MAY TILT ALLOWING ASTEROIDS TO ENTER EARTH’S ATMOSPHERE??? 1/3 OF THE EARTH, INCLUDING FORESTS AND GRASS, (VEGETATION DESTRUCTION) AND 1/3 OF THE SEA ARE DESTROYED. )
The Second Bowl of Wrath: Revelation 16:3 And the second angel poured out his bowl into the sea, and it turned to blood like that of the dead, and every living thing in the sea died.
ALL THE SEA WATER, WITH POTENTIAL SEAFOOD, BECOMES CONTAMINATED AND DESTROYED.)
Matthew 24:21 For at that time there will be great tribulation, unmatched from the beginning of the world until now, and never to be seen again.
The Third Seal: Famine (follows war) Revelation 6:5-6 I looked, and behold, a black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not damage the oil and the wine.”
(ONE DENARIUS WAS A DAY’S WAGE IN BIBLICAL TIMES. SMALL RATIONS OF FOOD WILL BE, EXTREMELY, EXPENSIVE. ANTICHRIST FOLLOWERS ARE ALLOWED TO PURCHASE LIFE’S NECESSITIES, BUT NOT THE FINER THINGS IN LIFE; THE OIL AND WINE. ONLY THE ANTICHRIST AND HIS APPOINTED HIGH OFFICIALS WILL HAVE ACCESS TO LIFE’S ENJOYABLE AND COMFORTING NON-ESSENTIALS???)
Revelation 13:16-18 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.
(SINCE 777 IS THE PERFECT AND COMPLETE NUMBER USED BY HOLY GOD, 777 COULD REPRESENT THE HOLY TRINITY OF THE FATHER, SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT. THE NUMBER 666 IS A DEMONIC COPY FOR THE UNHOLY TRINITY OF SATAN, THE ANTICHIRST, AND THE FALSE PROPHET. SATAN WILL GIVE HIS POWER AND AUTHORITY TO THE ANTICHRIST.)
The Third Trumpet: Revelation 8:10-11 Then the third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star burning like a torch fell from heaven and landed on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter like wormwood oil, and many people died from the bitter waters.
(METEOR, ASTEROID, NUCLEAR MISSILES, NUCLEAR IMPACT, AND CONTAMINATION FALLOUT??? WORMWOOD IS A VERY BITTER SUBSTANCE AND A PROVERBIAL FOR BITTERNESS AND SADNESS. 1/3 OF THE RIVERS AND SPRINGS ARE DESTROYED.)
The Third Bowl of Wrath: Revelation 16:4 And the third poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of the waters, and they became blood.
(NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST CONTAMINATION??? ALL OF THE RIVERS AND SPRINGS ARE DESTROYED.)
Matthew 24:21 For at that time there will be great tribulation, unmatched from the beginning of the world until now, and never to be seen again.
The Fourth Seal: Death (follows war, famine, and disease) Revelation 6:8 I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.
(DEATH FOLLOWS WAR, FAMINE, AND DISEASE. THE WILD BEASTS WILL TURN ON HUMANS AS FOOD FOR THEMSELVES. UNBELIEVERS WAIT IN HADES FOR THE SECOND RESURRECTION. OVER ¼ OF THE EARTH’S POPULATION WILL DIE.)
The Fourth Trumpet: Revelation 8:12 Then the fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun and moon and stars were struck. A third of the stars were darkened, a third of the day was without light, and a third of the night as well.
(THE SUN, MOON, AND STARS (THE COSMOS) WILL BE AFFECTED BY NUCLEAR WAR. THE LORD ALLOWED MANKIND TO SPLIT THE ATOM, AND HE WILL, ULTIMATELY, USE MANKIND TO DESTROY HIMSELF AND BRING ABOUT THE END OF THIS EVIL WORLD??? 1/3 OF THE STARS, SUN, AND MOON WILL BE DESTROYED.)
The Fourth Bowl of Wrath: Revelation 16:8-9 Next, the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was given power to scorch the people with fire. And the people were scorched by intense heat, and they cursed the name of God, who had authority over these plagues; yet they did not repent and give Him glory.
(THE EARTH, SUN, MOON, AND STARS ARE, PERFECTLY, SET, ALIGNED, AND HELD BY ALMIGHTY GOD FOR AN ABUNDANT LIFESTYLE ON PLANET EARTH. ONCE NUCLEAR INFUSION TILTS THE AXIS OF THE EARTH AND DEVASTATES THE EARTH’S ATMOSPHERE AND COSMOS, THE SUN WILL NO LONGER BE, PERFECTLY, ALIGNED AND WILL SCORCH LIFE ON PLANET EARTH.)
Matthew 24:9 “Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name.
The Fifth Seal: Martyrs (Christians who are killed for their faith in Jesus Christ) Revelation 6:9-11 When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had maintained; and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, will You refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” And there was given to each of them a white robe; and they were told that they should rest for a little while longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed even as they had been would be completed also.
(PEOPLE STILL HAVE A CHANCE TO TURN TO JESUS CHRIST DURING THE GREAT TRIBULATION BECAUSE OF GOD’S UNLIMITED GRACE, COMPASSION, AND MERCY. GOD KNOWS WHO HIS CHILDREN ARE, AND THE FULL NUMBER OF HIS CHILDREN WHO WILL RECONCILE WITH HIM AND BE ‘MARTYRED’ FOR HIM HAS NOT BEEN COMPLETED.)
The Fifth Trumpet: (The First Woe) Revelation 9:1-6 And the fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star having fallen out of heaven to the earth, and the key of the pit of the abyss was given to it. The star opened the pit of the abyss, and smoke rose out of it like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke from the pit. And out of the smoke, locusts descended on the earth, and they were given power like that of the scorpions of the earth. They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads. The locusts were not given power to kill them, but only to torment them for five months, and their torment was like the stinging of a scorpion. In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, but death will escape them. Revelation 9:10-11 They had tails with stingers like scorpions, which had the power to injure people for five months. They were ruled by a king, the angel of the abyss. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek it is Apollyon (that is, Destroyer).
(THE STAR IS ANOTHER HIGH RANKING DEMONIC ANGEL, NAMED ABADDON OR APOLLYON, WHO FELL FROM HEAVEN TO EARTH AND WHO HOLDS THE KEY TO THE ABYSS (TARTARUS); WHERE DEMONIC SPIRITS ARE BEING HELD IN CHAINS. THE DEMONS ARE LET LOOSE TO INFILTRATE THE EARTH. THE LOCUSTS COULD BE AN, UNDISCOVERED, ECOLOGICAL UPHEAVAL REMOVED FROM ITS NATURAL UNDERGROUND HABITAT AND USED FOR GOD’S PURPOSES OF JUDGMENT. THE LOCUSTS COULD BE A CODE OR SYMBOLIC NAME FOR A NEW TYPE OF PRECISION-GUIDED CHEMICAL WEAPON, THAT TARGETS AND TORMENTS HUMAN BEINGS (WITH THE STING OF A SCORPION) OVER THE COURSE OF SEVERAL MONTHS. SINCE A BUG INFESTATION WOULDN’T HAVE A KING, THIS IS, MOST LIKELY, ANOTHER CHEMICAL AGENT BOMB THAT IS RELEASED FROM THE BACK OF AN AIRCRAFT (TAILS WITH STINGERS???) THE TARGET IS UNBELIEVERS.)
The Fifth Bowl of Wrath: Revelation 16:10-11 And the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and its kingdom was plunged into darkness, and men began to gnaw their tongues in anguish and curse the God of heaven for their pains and sores; yet they did not repent of their deeds.
(THIS DARKNESS IS A PREVIEW OF HELL ITSELF, WHICH IS DESCRIBED, BY JESUS, AS THE OUTER DARKNESS IN MATTHEW 25:30)
Matthew 24:21-22 For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will. Unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.
(GOD KNOWS HIS CHILDREN WHO ARE CALLED HIS ELECT. UNTIL WE DIE, WE STILL HAVE GOD’S UNLIMITED GRACE AND MERCY TO ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS OUR LORD, SAVIOR, HIGH PRIEST, AND KING. THE BIBLE DOESN’T SAY THAT WE NEED TO BE SAVED BEFORE CHRIST’S RETURN TO EARTH. WE NEED TO BE SAVED BEFORE OUR DEATH. OUR SPIRIT DOESN’T DIE. WE ARE TRANSFORMED INTO THE SPIRITUAL REALM TO BE WITH JESUS, FOREVER, OR AWAIT THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT IN HADES WHERE UNBELIEVERS WILL BE, ETERNALLY, SEPARATED FROM JESUS. PLANET EARTH WILL GO THROUGH A WORLD-WIDE NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST AND CATACLYSMIC EVENTS….. NO SUN, MOON, OR STARS, PLANET BLACKOUT, EARTHQUAKES, VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS, FLOODS, MUDSLIDES, METEORS, ASTEROIDS, RADIATION POISONING, BIOLOGICAL CHEMICAL FALLOUT, WATER CONTAMINATION, FAMINE, MILLIONS OF DEATHS, TOTAL PLANET CHAOS???)
Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days: ‘The sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.’
The Sixth Seal: (Planet Earth is Shaken) Revelation 6:12-17 And when I saw the Lamb open the sixth seal, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black like sackcloth of goat hair, and the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, like unripe figs dropping from a tree shaken by a great wind. The sky receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved from its place. Then the kings of the earth, the nobles, the commanders, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and free man, hid in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains. And they said to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of the One seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb. For the great day of Their (Father and Son) wrath has come, and who is able to withstand it?”
(THE ENTIRE STRUCTURE OF PLANET EARTH AND THE COSMOS ARE SHAKEN OUT OF PLACE SO THAT THERE IS NO SUNLIGHT NOR MOONLIGHT, AND EVERY STAR FALLS FROM THE SKY TO EARTH. THE SKY ROLLS UP LIKE A SCROLL AND DISAPPEARS.) WITHOUT SUPERNATURAL INTERVENTION FROM GOD, A WORLD-WIDE NUCLEAR WAR USING POWERFUL WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION WILL DESTROY OUR PLANET. THIS WILL BE THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE HAVE KNOWN IT???)
The Sixth Trumpet: (The Second Woe) Revelation 9:13-16 Then the sixth angel sounded his trumpet, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar before God saying to the sixth angel with the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” So the four angels who had been prepared for this hour and day and month and year were released to kill a third of mankind. And the number of mounted troops was two hundred million; I heard their number. Revelation 9:18 A third of mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire, smoke, and brimstone that proceeded from their mouths.
(THE VOICE COULD BE AN ARCHANGEL AND THE FOUR HORNS REPRESENT GOD’S OMINIPOTENCE (TOTAL UNIVERSALITY OF POWER). THE GOLDEN ALTER CONTAINS THE PRAYERS OF GOD’S PEOPLE MIXED WITH INCENSE AND SITS BEFORE THE THRONE OF GOD. EUPHRATES IS A LANDMARK OF ANCIENT BABYLON WHICH WAS LOCATED IN MODERN DAY IRAQ. 1/3 OF MANKIND WILL BE KILLED BY FIRE, SMOKE, AND BRIMSTONE (SULFUR). TWO HUNDRED MILLION (200,000,000) MOUNTED TROOPS COULD BE PILOTED MISSILE AIRCRAFT , MODERN DAY DRONES, GUIDED MISSILES, HELICOPTERS, MOUNTED GUNSHIPS, OR A COMBINATION OF ALL THE WORLD’S NUCLEAR ARSENAL WITH DEVASTATING RESULTS FROM FIRE, SMOKE, AND SULFER???)
The Sixth Bowl of Wrath: Revelation 16:12-14 Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings of the East. And I saw three unclean spirits that looked like frogs, coming from the mouths of the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet. These are demonic spirits that perform signs and go out to all the kings of the earth, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God, the Almighty.
(THE KINGS OF THE EAST WILL BE GATHERED TOGETHER TO THE PLACE IN HEBREW THAT IS CALLED ARMAGEDDON. THIS IS THE VALLEY OF MEGIDDO. THE EUPHRATES IS DRIED UP FOR THE KINGS TO CROSS THROUGH TO THIS BATTLE SITE AND WAGE WAR AGAINST OUR LORD. SATAN IS FROTHING (LIKE A FROG) AT THE MOUTH WITH RAGE. OUT OF HIS MOUTH COMES THE SPIRIT OF PRIDE AND INFIDELITY, OUT OF THE BEAST COMES THE SPIRIT OF THIS WORLD, AND OUT OF THE FALSE PROPHET COMES THE SPIRIT OF LYING RELIGIOUS DELUSION???) THE BEAST AND FALSE PROPHET WILL BE THE FIRST AND SECOND BEINGS TO BE THROWN INTO THE FIERY LAKE AND BURNING SULFUR (HELL) FOR ETERNITY. SATAN WILL BE BOUND IN THE ABYSS FOR ONE THOUSAND YEARS (1,000).
Matthew 24:30-31 At that time the sign* of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. (King of Kings – Rev 19:11-16) And He will send out His angels with a loud trumpet call, (7th Trumpet) and they will gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.
(THIS IS ‘ARMAGEDDON’ (THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST IN THE CLOUDS) WHO WILL DESCEND FROM HEAVEN ON A WHITE HORSE AS ‘KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS’. HE WILL DEFEAT THE BEAST, FALSE PROPHET, AND THEIR GATHERED NATIONS WITH THE BREATH OF HIS MOUTH. HIS ARMY OF SAINTS FOLLOW HIM ON WHITE HORSES, BUT ARE NOT INVOLVED IN THE BATTLE. JESUS AND HIS SAINTS DESCEND TO THE MOUNT OF OLIVES IN JERUSALEM.)
* Revelation 11:19 Then the temple of God in heaven was opened, and the ark of His covenant appeared in His temple. And there were flashes of lightning, and rumblings, and rolls of thunder, and an earthquake, and a great hailstorm.
(I BELIEVE THE ARK OF THE COVENANT IS THE SIGN MENTIONED IN MATTHEW 24:30. THE LIGHTNING, RUMBLINGS, THUNDER, AND EARTHQUAKE ARE LIKE THE MANIFESTATIONS OF GOD’S PRESENCE AT MOUNT SINAI.) Exodus 19:16-19
The Seventh Seal: Revelation 8:1 When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.
(A SOBER AND AWESTRUCK SILENCE WAITING FOR JUDGMENT TO COME!)
Deuteronomy 32:36 ‘Vengeance is Mine, and retribution, In due time their foot will slip; For the day of their calamity is near, And the impending things are hastening upon them.’
Revelation 8:3-5 Then another angel, who had a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense to offer, along with the prayers of all the saints, on the golden altar before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, rose up before God from the hand of the angel. Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it to the earth; and there were rolls of thunder, and rumblings, and flashes of lightning, and an earthquake.
(I FIND THAT THE DIRECTED ACTIONS OF THE ANGELS, BY GOD, IN THE SPIRITUAL REALM BECOME THE CONSEQUENCES OF MANKIND’S DECISIONS AND ACTIONS IN THE PHYSICAL REALM.)
The Seventh Trumpet: (the Third Woe) Revelation 11-15-18 Then the seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and loud voices called out in heaven: “The kingdom of the world is now the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and He will reign forever and ever.” And the twenty-four elders who sit on their thrones before God fell on their faces and worshiped God, saying: “We give thanks to You, Lord God Almighty, the One who is and who was; You have taken Your great power and begun to reign. The nations were enraged, and Your wrath has come. The time has come to judge the dead, and to reward Your servants, the prophets and saints, and those who fear Your name, both small and great, and to destroy those who destroy the earth.”
(THE LORD WILL BE, PHYSICALLY, PRESENT WITH US ON PLANET EARTH, AND HE WILL BEGIN TO REIGN FOR ONE THOUSAND (1,000) YEARS. THIS PERIOD IS KNOWN AS THE MILLENNIUM. SATAN IS BOUND DURING THIS TIME. THE TWENTY-FOUR ELDERS ARE A REPRESENTATION OF ALL THE JEWISH AND GENTILE SAINTS WHO WILL RULE WITH JESUS DURING THE MILLENNIUM. FOLLOWING THE MILLENNIUM, SATAN IS TURNED LOOSE FOR A SHORT TIME TO DECEIVE THE NATIONS AND GATHER THEM FOR ONE LAST STANCE AGAINST THE SAINTS. GOD REIGNS DOWN FIRE AND BRIMSTONE UPON THEM ALL, AND IT IS OVER! SATAN IS THE THIRD BEING TO BE THROWN INTO HELL. THE UNBELIEVERS WILL RISE IN THE SECOND RESURRECTION. JESUS WILL JUDGE THE UNBELIEVERS AT THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT, AND HE AND HIS ANGELS WILL THROW THEM ALL INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE (HELL) FOR ETERNITY. ALL BELIEVERS IN JESUS CHRIST WILL STAND BEFORE HIM TO GIVE AN ACCOUNT OF OUR LIVES, AND BE REWARDED, ACCORDINGLY. WE WILL RECEIVE OUR HEAVENLY REWARDS, FROM HIM, FOR ALLOWING HIM TO WORK THROUGH US WHILE WE LIVED ON THIS EARTH. WE WILL, THEN, STEP INTO THE NEW HEAVEN AND NEW EARTH.)
The Seventh Bowl of Wrath: Revelation 16:17-21 Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came from the throne in the temple, saying, “It is done!” And there were flashes of lightning, and rumblings, and rolls of thunder, and a great earthquake, the likes of which had not occurred since men were upon the earth—so mighty was the great quake. The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. And God remembered Babylon the great and gave her the cup of the wine of the fury of His wrath. Then every island fled, and no mountain could be found. And huge hailstones, about a hundred pounds each, rained down on them from above. And men cursed God for the plague of hail, because it was so horrendous.
(THE THREE PARTS OF BABYLON INCLUDE POLITICS, GOVERNMENT, AND RELIGION. THE ENTIRE WORLD-WIDE SYSTEM IS DESTROYED, BUT NOT THE ENTIRE EARTH. JESUS WILL REIGN ON EARTH FOR A MILLENNIUM.)
The Judgment of Satan: Revelation 20:7-10 When the thousand years are complete, Satan will be released from his prison, and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to assemble them for battle. Their number is like the sand of the seashore. And they marched across the broad expanse of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. But fire came down from heaven and consumed them. And the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, into which the beast and the false prophet had already been thrown. There they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
(AS MENTIONED ABOVE, SATAN DECEIVES AND GATHERS MANY NATIONS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE TO SURROUND JERUSALEM IN A FINAL ATTEMPT TO DESTROY THE SAINTS. THE BATTLE IS OVER BEFORE IT BEGINS! GOD REIGNS DOWN FIRE AND SULFUR THAT DEVOURS GOG AND MAGOG (symbolic), ALL REMAINING ARMIES. SATAN IS THE THIRD TO BE CAST INTO HELL FOR ETERNITY.)
A New Heaven and a New Earth: Revelation 21:1-7 Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children.
With thankfulness to our Father through His Son, Jesus Christ.
In Jesus’ name,
