PresentsThe 7th Trumpet of Revelation
The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever.
 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,
Remember back in chapter 6 what the prayers of those who were slain for the Word of God were? Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.
Well praise God, the time has come and the Day of the Lord, the Day of Vengeance, has arrived and "how long" is asked no more.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?
Let the nations be angry all they want! They will still bow their knees to the King of kings and Lord of lords. And there shall be a judgment as the First Resurrection takes place, and the servants of the Most High will receive eternal life and a double portion of the blessings and rewards from our Father. What a time it will be! And it's not too far off! In fact, it may be much closer than you think!Rev. 11:18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
 And the Temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in His Temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.
These are the exact same events we just read of in Rev. 11:19, except for the hail. Where's the hail?Rev. 16:17
And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
There's the hail! This happens to those gathered together five verses ago in Rev. 16:16 in the place "called" Armageddon, which means rendevous, or gathering. And as you know, Jesus Christ returns to Jerusalem, which is where Satan's crowd will be gathered. We'll discuss Armageddon and also Hamon-gog of Ezekiel 39 when we get to Rev. chapter 16.Rev. 16:21
And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
Finally, did you notice that the Ark of the Covenant was located in the Temple in Heaven? Yet now and then we read in the newspapers that some archeologists and/or Rabbis believe it might be in a sealed tunnel or under a wall in Jerusalem, etc., etc. And Hollywood film producers further the interest and ignorance regarding the Ark with movies like "Raiders of the Lost Ark". Had they looked in the Word of God they would have found it!
Then too, many men seek their salvation through the traditions and the teachings of their church and will thus be ashamed and wish the mountains to fall upon them when the 7th Trump sounds and Jesus Christ returns.
Had they looked into the Word of God they would have found it!
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
