In the last chapter, Revelation 7, we read about the 6th seal, in which God’s elect are sealed with the truth by the Holy Spirit. And now we are about to read of the 7th seal, which is understanding of all the seals as a whole, in preparation of the coming tribulation and antichrist.
(Rev 8:1) And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
The 7th seal is the understanding of the sequence of events in the end times. By the time the 7th seal is opened, in this sequence of events, satan, as antichrist, will have been on the earth for the second half of the Tribulation, (666–6th seal, 6th trump, 6th vial), and therefore during that second half, there is silence in heaven because he will no longer be there fighting the battle he had led during the first half against God’s angels.
(Rev 8:2) And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
No we are going to go into the 7 trumpets, which announce the sequence of events of the end times.
(Rev 8:3) And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
(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.
God hears all of our prayers, and He answers them accordingly. The answer isn’t always a yes because God always knows and does what is best for us. However, the faith that comes with these prayers pleases God and He values that. The saints, God’s elect, because they are led by the Holy Spirit, are guided as to what they should pray for, as no one knows God’s complete will because only He has the ability to know and see all.
(Rom 8:26) Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
(Rom 8:27) And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
(Rom 8:28) And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
(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.
The censer filled with prayers is filled with God’s consuming fire and He sends it to earth with His Holy Spirit to fire up all of His elect. As the trumpets start to sound, it is a call to action for His servants, and it will stir up the entire world because when God’s pure truth is shared, the reaction is either love or hate from the people of the world.
(Rev 8:6) And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
What these trumpets are about to announce will not be seen or perceived in a physical sense; it is on a spiritual level, and you will need spiritual eyes to see and ears to hear or you won’t even know or understand that it’s happening.
These trumpet began, at the start of this last generation, which took place in 1948. As the generation has progressed, the rate at which prophecies are fulfilled, has been accelerating. These are known as the labor pains, and this is labor of the birth of a new age, which will begin when Jesus returns, after the Tribulation.
(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.
At the sound of this first trumpet, a vast number of people of the world, the trees and the grass, will become spiritually dead, as they do not know God through Jesus Christ, nor do they even care to know Him. This spiritual death can be overcome, but it is very difficult while in the flesh. But for many of them, there will be a chance in the Millennium, under Jesus’ rule on earth.
This spiritual destruction is accomplished through the hidden dynasty of education of the kenites, which is the 4th seal, in chapter 6 of Revelation, and through this means, people’s minds easily become more pliable to those in power.
(Rev 8:8) And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
As this second trumpet sound the nations (mountains) of the world begin to lose their sovereignty and are cast into the sea, which represents the people of the world. Then the nations of the world slowly become subject to the authority of a world government.
While this is taking place, even more people of the world (the sea again) begin to become spiritually dead. They become deceived by the delusions of people who would rather work out their own salvation to try to bring world peace, rather than turn to Jesus Christ to bring them peace. We are told in the Bible that until the time that Jesus returns, there will be no world peace. Those people who try to establish it on their own are liars and are accursed, because without establishing peace in Jesus’ name, tensions and hatred with fester up in people’s hearts until it boils over. This is inevitable, and for this reason, peace cannot ever be enforced, it must be welcomed through the love of Jesus.
(Rev 8:9) And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
Not only are these nations losing their independence, but the world trade between sovereign nations and the world’s economy is affected, and begins to grow weaker. This is accomplished through the hidden dynasty of economy, which is the 3rd seal.
(Rev 8:10) And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
This great star that falls from heaven is satan, the other morning star. He is the false morning star, or the false light bearer, Lucifer. Just as he is represented by the moon, and God represented by the sun, the poorly reflects the light that the sun gives off on its own, and satan poorly imitates the light of God’s truth and dimly lights the night, which is the Tribulation. Satan likes to try to imitate everything that God is and pass himself off as an angel of light.
(2Co 11:14) And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
(2Co 11:15) Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
Those who serve satan at the deepest capacities are called the illuminati, which is an organization also run by the kenites. These are the “illuminated ones”, which are really only falsely illuminated. They help spread the deception of satan to control the people of the world through the four hidden dynasties. Just as Christians are to be the lamps of God, the illuminati, those who choose to serve satan, are the lamps of satan.
Their deception sweeps the whole world away in a flood of lies and leads it right into the one world political system. This political system is a product of the political dynasty of the 2nd seal. The fountains of waters represent the Christians of the world, and they are just as susceptible to the deception as anyone else. Only the most familiar with God’s Word will recognize what is happening.
(Rev 8:11) And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
Wormwood is the poison of satan and he poisons the fountains of living water from God. The same Christians who have accepted Christ and His salvation will drink this water poisoned by Wormwood, and will be led astray from God, right into satan’s one world system when he arrives as antichrist. When Christians follow antichrist, along with the rest of the world, they will become spiritually dead. For most of them there will be no chance until we enter the Millennium, after Jesus returns.
The religious system that will soon follow will be the result of the dynasty of religion, which has been thousands of years in the making, and is the 1st seal. It first took root when the nethinim worked their way into service in the temple centuries before Christ. They gradually worked their way up in position to be the very priests, slyly taking those positions from the Levites, and pretending to be holy. These are the false jews mentioned in Revelation 2 & 3.
(Rev 8:12) And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
In the 4th trumpet, God’s truth (the sun) is covered more than it has ever been in the past. Anyone who is left who has not been fooled by the lies of satan and his servants will then be pulled in and made ready to worship the beast system and antichrist. The earth will, at this point, be prepared for the Tribulation, and will move swiftly into the 5th trumpet of the One World Government.
(Rev 8:13) And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!
These angels are warning that the world is about to enter into the Tribulation, a time of the greatest troubles the earth and flesh man have ever seen. Anyone who doesn’t know what to expect should hit the books and prepare because it is about to get rough!
