REVELATION CHAPTER 8


Seventh Seal Opened...Silence in Heaven....Anointed Fire of God falls from
 Heaven....Four of the Seven Angels pour out the Plagues of God.

  
Revelation 8:1 "And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour."

The time of this transaction is of great importance in the understanding of this great event, which can only fully be known by the signs of the times.(Rev.chapter 8 here)
The Book of Revelation, declares many mysteries of the End Days, and much of the writing therein is recorded in language of symbols, types, and shadows. It is therefore difficult to understand without Biblical knowledge and the meaning of the speech in which it is recorded. Jesus says that no man knows the day or the hour of the coming of the Son of Man, however. He has declared that we shall know by the signs of the TIMES in the Last Days.

This great event and the opening of the seventh seal is revealed by the proceeding and approaching signs. The greatest mystery of the Bible is revealed to be Christ and His Church, and the uniting together of His Elect, Matthew 24:27-31.

Matthew 24:27-31
27. For as the lightning cometh out of the east,and shineth even unto the west,so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28. For wheresoever the carcase is,there will the eagles be gathered together.
29. Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened,and the moon shall not give her light,and the stars shall fall from heaven,and the powers of heavens shall be shaken:
30. And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:and then shall all of the tribes of the earth mourn,and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

The opening of the first seal declares the going forth of the White Horse and His Rider, conquering and to conquer. Although this is declared by some to be the Antichrist, the Bible symbol teaches us that such cannot be true. White is never associated with the Devil, but contrary to this, for white is shown to represent righteousness and purity.

The White Horse and His Rider, declares in symbolic language, the beginning of the Church Age of the Last Days, which was foreshadowed with the outpouring of the mighty revival of the Holy Spirit. The first church in its making in the Early Apostolic Age, began by its declaring the Promise of the Father, and the resurrection of Jesus, which were witnesses to us.

The second seal foreshadows the beginning of the World War 1, which began in 1914 to take peace from the earth. The League of Nations or as it is now called the United Nations, will never be able to conquer this Red Horse, for war has come to stay until the End of time on earth.

All of the seals will be opened in their specified time. All of these events are known by the signs of the times, so also is made known the event of the opening of the seventh seal and the silence in heaven for the space of half an hour. The preceeding sign of this great mystery we are told, shall bring the finish therein when the last trumpet fulfills it's mission.Revelation 10:7 ”But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel,when he shall begin to sound,the mystery of God should be finished,as he hath declared to his servants the prophets”, the Mystery of the Church.

The Mystery of the Church has been seen in Adam and Eve, as they are declared to be ONE in the flesh. Genesis 2:24 “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother,and shall cleave unto his wife:and they shall be one flesh”.Most of our forefathers have spoken thereof. All of the Books of the New Testament speak concerning Christ and His Church, which is to become His Body.

The whole Book of Ephesians is devoted to the processing of the Body, in bringing It into perfection, as a perfect Church, without spot or wrinkle, until we come into the unity and knowledge, and until we measure up to the perfect stature of the fulness of Christ. Thus, the Church must come into this perfect condition the same as Jesus was, before She can be known as His Elect. This condition is not to be done in heaven, but while we are here on the earth, and it is not an instant transaction, for we must grow into perfection as the Bible declares.

All of this the angels in heaven desire to look into. They have never experienced the redemption of the body, for they were created spirits. However, they know that something more wonderful than they had ever seen was taking place on earth, and of which they could not be partakers.

WILL HE FIND FAITH WHEN HE COMES?....YES INDEED! for the Elect Who are called Eagles, are around the broken Body eating and drinking of His Life's blood. Matthew 24:28 "For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together" and......
Luke17:37 "And they answered and said unto him, Where Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the BODY is, thither will the eagles be gathered together."

Matthew 24:30 “And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”Jesus will come, and then suddenly, the seventh seal is opened, and the curtain is rolled back. They will behold the greatest scene of all heaven and earth. Jesus will be gathering His PERFECTED ELECT around Him for the long awaited ceremony of the marriage which is yet to come. All heaven comes to attention. They will be awe stricken. They will be speechless as they stand in reverence and respect. The great supernatural phenomenon of the sixth seal will not only stir the inhabitants on earth, but it will also stir the inhabitants of heaven.

Suddenly the Son of Man will appear to gather His Elect, the Bride to be. The angels in heaven will behold in full view the opening of the seventh seal. The angels of the Son of Man will be gathering the Elect from the four winds under heaven.

The moon's turning to blood, Acts 2:20 “The sun shall be turned into darkness,and the moon into blood,before that great and notable day of the Lord come:”and Joel 2:31”The sun shall be turned into darkness,and the moon into blood,before the great and the terrible day of the Lord come.” is a reminder to the world that they shall be judged by the blood of Jesus which they trampled under foot. Judgment comes through the Son of God. Acts 17:31 “ Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead”             and ….. 

John 5:22-27 ”For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:....That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him ....Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life......Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live..... For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;....And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.

The assurance of His resurrection is conveyed through the moon which turns to blood. Jesus will return again and the sign of His coming will be the moon's turning to blood. The moon turning to blood takes place just before the great gathering of the Army of God,(His Chosen Elect) of the Church. It is the time of the evangelising of the earth.

 Due to past teachings of the second coming of the Lord, there has been a misunderstanding in the Christian world about His SECOND COMING. Jesus is coming the SECOND TIME, without sin, UNTO SALVATION. That is, to minister salvation to the whole world. According to Hebrews 9:28 this is the purpose of His second coming and I quote:…

 “So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and UNTO THEM THAT LOOK FOR HIM shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation” , Read also Matthew 24:14 “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations;and then shall the end come”.

THE SECOND COMING OF GOD' S SON



Matthew 24:29-30
"Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: ….And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory."

This is the SECOND COMING of Jesus the Son of Man, Who comes UNTO SALVATION, Hebrews 9:28(above). He is coming to evangelize the world, the whole earth. He comes AFTER the tribulation of "those days". That is, after the tribulation of Matthew 24:21 ”For then shall be great tribulation,such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time,no,nor ever shall be” has begun.

This tribulation has no part of the 3 1/2 year time of trouble which is spoken of in Daniel 12:1-11.(Read Here) :also spoken of in Revelation 11:2-3 (Read Here),but uses the term 42 months, and 1260 days: also spoken of in Revelation 12:6 (Read Here) using the term 1260 days, and in verse 14 (Read Here) uses the terminology time, times, and half a time:and again in Revelation 13:5 “ And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months” as 42 months.

When one uses the method of 30 days to each month, and 12 months in each year, each year has 360 days. And when one computes time after this manner, 360 days in each year (as was the order in those days) then these periods of times are the same period of time.

When Jesus comes. He immediately gathers together His Elect in preparation for the ministry of His coming to reap the harvest of souls. The 14th chapter of Zechariah, verses 1-4 (Read Here) speaks of the day of the Lord's coming, when He will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle. "Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the days of battle." This takes place AFTER His coming, and not AT His coming.

The Bible declares four comings of Jesus, the Son of Man. His first coming was to die on the Cross to bear the sins of many. His second coming is UNTO SALVATION, to reap the Last Day Harvest of souls, Hebrews 9:28 “So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many;and UNTO THEM THAT LOOK FOR HIM shall he appear a second time without sin unto salvation”.

His third coming is to raise the righteous dead.1 Corinthians 15:51-54"Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,... In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump:for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible,and we shall be changed... For this corruptible must put on incorruption,and this mortal must put on immortality.... So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.".....

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
"For the LORD HIMSELF SHALL DESCEND FROM HEAVEN with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."

Please read His fourth coming in Revelation 19:11-21, and Jude 14-15.

Revelation 19:11-21
11.And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12.His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13.And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14.And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15.And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16.And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
17.And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18.That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
19.And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20.And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21.And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Jude 14-15
14.  And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
15.  To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly
committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

When these comings are bunched together and accepted as only ONE coming, it brings confusion in the understanding of prophecy of the Last Day movements of God's plan on earth. The fourth coming pertains to the judgments and destruction of the sinners and the cleansing of the earth in the preparation for the Millennium Age on earth, of the Kingdom of God.

The contents of all seven seals are ordained and sealed until the End, when great supernatural power and strength will be manifested by Jesus and His Army of His Chosen Elect. For this reason, the Church has not received the Promise of Jesus, when He said, "Greater works than these shall ye do" All seven seals will be opened and released consecutively as needed, AFTER the Second Coming of the Lord, and will continue in action to the end of their course.

Matthew 24:31 "And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other."...... 
All heaven will be speechless for one half hour. They will be awe stricken, for God's Son will be choosing His Bride. This is not the wedding or marriage, but rather it is the engagement. The Elect has a ministry to perform before the marriage.

All of God's people are invited to be in the Bride, but only those Who are qualified will be Chosen. Luke 17:34-37 ”I tell you,in that night there should be two men in one bed;the one shall be taken,and the other shall be left...Two women shall be grinding together,the one shall be taken,and the other left....Two men shall be in the field;the one shall be taken,and the other left....And they answered and said unto him,Where, Lord?And he said unto them,Wheresoever the body is,thither will the eagles be gathered together. and …..

Matthew 24:40-42
"Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left....Two women shall be grinding at the mill ;the one shall be taken, and the other left....Watch therefore:for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.”.........


The Elect has a ministry to perform. An invitation to the wedding must go out to the whole world. Both bad and good are called, but only those who will put on the wedding garment (the righteousness) of God will be accepted. Please read this parable in Matthew 22:8-14. 
8.    Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
9.     Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
10.   So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
11.   And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
12.   And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
13.   Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
14.   For many are called, but few are chosen.

Few Christians realize or understand the full essence and glory of this coming together as Husband and Wife. The Bride will actually become a part of the Godhead. One more will be added to the Family of God. She inherits the glory and power of the Son of God. This great mystery will not be finished until the seventh trumpet shall sound. The Church is still on earth, and the Bride will be made ready for Her final ministry upon the earth.

Every nation shall hear the Gospel preached, Matthew 24:14 “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations;and then shall the end come”.The gates of Hell shall not prevail against Her. She has inherited, all the power of Jesus, Her Husband to be. She shall go forth conquering and to conquer. Whosoever's sins She remits, they are remitted unto them: and Whosoever's sins She retains, they are retained....

John20:23
“Whose soever sins ye remit,they are remitted unto them;and whose soever sins ye retain they are retained.”
Only the Family of God in heaven has this power, and the Elect is at this time given this POWER, being engaged in unity with the Son of God, and soon She will become ONE in Body, and will be married to Jesus the Living Head.

The Great Revival due upon earth, will appear at the going forth of the sixth and seventh seal. More and more of God's ministers and people are realizing that there must come a Last Day revival. Let us hope and pray that the understanding of this great activity will be revealed.

The Early Rain out-pouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, is the beginning of the preparation of the Church, but the Scripture declares in the Last Days, God will give us the EARLY AND THE LATTER RAIN. The time of this double portion of Rain, is clearly declared to be AFTER the army from the north, and other nations gathers together against the land of Israel.....

Ezekiel
38:15-16, “And thou shall come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty 
army: ...And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land;it shall be in the LATTER DAYS, and I will bring thee against my land, that THE HEATHEN MAY KNOW ME, WHEN I SHALL BE SANCTIFIED IN THEE, О GOG, BEFORE THEIR EYES."...Read Ezekiel chapters 36, 38, and 39, and accept them at face value.(See Scriptures Here)

Zechariah 14:1-3, gives the results of the armies from the north when they come against the land of Israel. Jerusalem will be taken and spoiled, and one half of the city will be taken captive. Then shall the Lord go forth and fight against the nations.

Zechariah 14:1-3 "Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee... For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and ,the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city... Then shall the Lord go forth and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle."....This is not the Battle of Armageddon.

At this time the world will be in great confusion, wars, earthquakes, famine and pestilence, and the greatest persecution upon the Christians that the world has ever seen, or ever shall see again. There will be hatred and deception, false prophets and false christs. This world condition will bring an end of the ministry as we know it in this day.

Matthew 24:29-30” Immediatly after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened,and the moon shall not give her light,and the stars shall fall from heaven,and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:... And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn,and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

Jesus comes with supernatural
power and glory. The Elect are gathered to preach the Gospel. The first six seals are fully opened. Then the seventh seal is opened, and the seventh trumpet is ready to sound. The plagues of God in judgment are poured out upon the nations while the Army of the Elect is gathering every available soul through the ministry. The Early and Latter Rain is poured out as ONE RAIN and the harvest for souls begins.

After the victory over Gog, and the evil nations, and the Satanic forces which will be in control of Jerusalem in THAT DAY, Jerusalem will be cleansed and God's People will live in the blessing of Eden throughout the mountains of God, which was once a desolate wilderness while the rest of the world will suffer famine, Ezekiel chapters 36,37, and 38.(See Scriptures Here)

The Church carries a great responsibility in the Last Day events. It is through Her that the judgments are brought upon the ungodly world, just as God used Moses to bring ten plagues of judgment upon Egypt. It would be well to remember that the Lord, in working His plan of regeneration upon the earth has always worked through the human vessel. Angels have been used as messengers to His earthly ministers and prophets, but the earthly ministration has been powered, by God, through the human vessel. 

THE SEVEN ANGELS

Revelation 8:2 "And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.".....The Seven Angels that stood in the presence of God are not celestial Beings, but They are symbolic of Seven Men who have been prepared to sound the alarm of war, etc. They belong to the Church ministry of salvation and judgment of the Last Day.

When Jesus appeared to John on the Isle of Patmos, in the midst of Seven Golden Candlesticks, He held Seven Stars in His right hand. He interpreted the Seven Golden Candlesticks as the Seven Churches, and the Seven Stars as the Seven Angels of the Churches,Revelation 1:20 ”The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.”
The second and third chapters show Them to be the pastors of the Churches. As those Men which are called Angels are a part of the Church, so are the Angel Trumpeters a part of the Church, sounding the plagues of Their ministry, even as Moses and the Prophets did. Read Revelations chapters 2 and 3 (See Scriptures Here)



 THE SEVEN TRUMPETS

The sounding of the trumpets was a very important occasion to Israel.
TRUMPETS SOUNDED THE CALL TO WAR...TRUMPETS SOUNDED THE MOVING OF THE TABERNACLE....
Read Numbers 10:9 and Numbers 10:1-7.

Numbers 10:9
9. And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies.


Numbers 10:1-7
1. And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2. Make thee two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them for the calling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps.
3. And when they shall blow with them, all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
4. And if they blow but with one trumpet, then the princes, which are heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves unto thee.
5. When ye blow an alarm, then the camps that lie on the east parts shall go forward.
6. When ye blow an alarm the second time, then the camps that lie on the south side shall take their journey: they shall blow an alarm for their journeys.
7. But when the congregation is to be gathered together, ye shall blow, but ye shall not sound an alarm.

TRUMPETS SOUNDED FOR THE GATHERNG AT ТHE FEAST. TRUMPETS SOUNDED AND THE WALLS OF THE ENEMY FELL....Read

Numbers 10:10 and Joshua 6:13-16

Numbers 10:10
“Also in the day of your gladness,and in your solemn days,and in the beginnings of your months,ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings,and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings;that they may be to you for a memorial before your God:I am the LORD your God.”

Joshua 6:13-16
13.And seven priests bearing seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the LORD went on continually, and blew with the trumpets: and the armed men went before them; but the rereward came after the ark of the LORD, the priests going on, and blowing with the trumpets.
14.And the second day they compassed the city once, and returned into the camp: so they did six days.
15.And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose  early about the dawning of the day, and compassed the city after the same manner seven times: only on that day they compassed the city seven times. 
16.And it came to pass at the seventh time, when the priests blew with the
trumpets, Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the LORD hath given you the city.


TRUMPETS SOUNDED AT THE FEAST OF JUBILEE.
TRUMPETS SOUNDED AT THE DEDICATION OF THE TEMPLE.

The trumpets of the Church are a very important occasion to the Church in Her Last Day ministry. The trumpeters will be made ready with the trumpets in their hand, waiting for the Word from the Captain of the Army to give the order.

The voice of the trumpet at mount Sinai, revealed the glory and strength of God in holiness.....
Exodus 19:16-19, Exodus 20:18-19, Hebrews 12:18-29.

Exodus 19:16-19
16.And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled.
17.And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount.
18.And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.
19.And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.

Exodus 20:18-19
18. And all the people saw the thunderings,and the lightings,and the noise of the trumpet,and the mountain smoking:and when the people saw it,they removed,and stood afar off.
19. And they said unto Moses,Speak thou with us,and we will hear:but let not God speak with us, lest we die.

Hebrews 12:18-29
18.For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest,
19.And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard entreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more:
20.(For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart:
21.And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:)
22.But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
23.To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
24. And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
25. See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:
26. Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath   promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth   only, but also heaven.
27. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of   those things that are shaken, as of things that are made,   that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved,   let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably   with reverence and godly fear:
29. For our God is a consuming fire.

This was the first meeting of called out Israel with God. They gathered at the base of the mountain to hear the trumpet, the voice of God that caused the whole mountain to tremble and shake.

God appeared in Person, although the people did not see Him, lest they be consumed with His brightness. The trumpet declared the Law and will of the Almighty, and the sounding thereof manifested the reality of His strength and power in the shaking of the mount, and the fire that was thereupon.

God set up the order of worldly worship for His people on earth, and introduced the use of a trumpet to call His people to the feasts and to war. His voice was heard through the trumpet. Later He raised up prophets whom He spoke through, to declare that which the trumpets did not reveal unto Israel. They were used as a trumpet to Israel: that they might hear His voice, as they were led through the dispensations of the Old Order of the Law, and the prophecy of the End times.

Under the New Order of the New Testament, the trumpet or voice, of the Lord, is heard through the Apostles: and some through prophets, and some through evangelists, and some through pastors, and some through teachers, Ephesians 4:11 “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists;and some, pastors and teachers;”and in the End Days, until the consummation of His plan on earth God will use these vessels.                                                             

He does not change His method of speaking unto the people on earth. He speaks through His anointed messengers in This Day, and He shall continue to do so in THAT DAY of great miracles and once again shaking the earth.


Hebrews 12:18-26.
 “For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest,... And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard entreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more:”......... verses 22-26, "But ye are come unto mount Sion,and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,.... To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect..... And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling,that speaketh better things than that of Abel.... See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:.... Whose voice then shook the earth:but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more,I shake not the earth only, but also heaven."
  
How is He going to do this?.......By appearing in Person and speaking as a Trumpet
through His Anointed, Who shall blow the trumpet by their own voices at the opening of the seventh seal.

Leviticus 23:24-25, Numbers 29:1-6, The trumpet sounded on the first day, of the seventh month. Likewise, the sounding of the trumpet will be heard by the seventh seal, with the going forth of the Great Revival.

Leviticus 23:24-25
24.  Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.
25.  Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD. 

Numbers 29:1-6
1. And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing the trumpets unto you.
2. And ye shall offer a burnt offering for a sweet savour unto the LORD; one young bullock, one ram, and seven lambs of the first year without blemish:
3. And their meat offering shall be of flour mingled with oil, three tenth deals for a bullock, and two tenth deals for a ram,
4. And one tenth deal for one lamb, throughout the seven lambs:
5. And one kid of the goats for a sin offering, to make an atonement for you:
6. Beside the burnt offering of the month, and his meat offering, and the daily burnt offering, and his meat offering, and their drink offerings, according unto their manner, for a sweet savour, a sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD. 

Joshua 6:4 “And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams' horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets.” SEVEN PRIESTS went before the Ark with SEVEN TRUMPETS and compassed the walls of Jericho SEVEN TIMES on the SEVENTH DAY. The observance of trumpets casts a shadow on the End Day events.

There are SEVEN ANGEL messengers with SEVEN TRUMPETS in the End Day, sounding the SEVEN last blasts of their trumpets with the SEVEN last judgments of God, which will cause the walls of Jericho to fall. The spirit of unbelief in the world will fall and all will be made to believe and will know that He is the only God, by His movements through the Church. The gates of Hell shall not prevail against Her.

The angels are SEVEN MESSENGERS of the Elect of the Church which will be used of God in the great ministry in THAT DAY, to speak through as a trumpet. All the events that followed the sounding of the trumpet of Israel, were ordained by God. Likewise, are the events in their time, when the SEVEN TRUMPETS shall sound through the Church.

These ordained Trumpeters are not ordinary Men, for They are a part of the PERFECT BODY of CHRIST. At the sounding of the trumpet, great fear will grip the world. With the great deliverance of the souls of men, God will pour out the plagues in judgment, through the Church.

Amos 3:6 "Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? Shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?"



ANOTHER ANGEL

 Revelation 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."......... The duty of this angel was to offer incense upon the altar. The altar is the altar of incense which the earthly altar in the tabernacle was patterned from...

This was the office of the High Priest. None other was permitted to burn incense before the Lord, nor could they enter into the tabernacle, or even look upon the sacred furniture therein. When the tabernacle was moved from place to place, all the sacred furniture was covered by the priest,

Numbers 4:5-20 (Read Here)

It was the Priest's duty to offer incense upon the altar twice a day before the Lord. The Altar of Incense sat back to back with the Ark of the Covenant where the presence of God dwelt, in the Holy of Holies, or the Most Holy Place. A golden entwined vail separated the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place. The Altar in heaven sets before the throne of God.

The incense under the Law, was a special composition of spices ordained by the Lord, which created a sweet odor when it was burned upon the altar. Incense is symbolic of the earthly prayers of God's people.

The golden censer was a golden pot which was used to carry live coals of fire, from the brazen altar of sacrifice, to the altar of incense. Any other fire was known as a strange fire and was not acceptable unto the Lord. All sin offerings and petitions were brought to the High Priest and offered to the Lord. He was the mediator between God and man.

All of these things on earth, the tabernacle, the furnishings, and the High Priest, are patterned after the things in heaven, and written for admonition and for our understanding,Hebrews 9:23-24 ”It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.....For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:”
They speak to us in symbols, types, and shadows in a Biblical language, which brings a true understanding of things yet future.

Now the earthly order under the Law, has given way to the New Order of Grace. God dwells no longer in a temple of material things, but He seeks to form a New Tabernacle in the bodies of His people, which shall develop into a New City, New Jerusalem, that will dwell forever in the New Heaven and Earth, 2 Corinthians 5:1-4 and Revelation 21:1-5.

2 Corinthians 5:1-4
1.For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved,we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
2.For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: 
3.If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.
4.For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of   life. And....

Revelation 21:1-5
1.And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2.And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3.And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4.And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
5.And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

This necessitates a New Order of Priesthood such as Melchizedek, a Ruler of righteousness and peace, like unto the Son of God Who will abide a Priest continually. This Priest will bring the Elect of the Church into perfection by the Holy Spirit, and will accept Her for His Wife, for He is the Son of Man and also the Son of God.

In Revelation the eight chapter, the angel which stands before the throne at the altar, with the golden censer in His hand, is our HIGH PRIEST, and none other than the Son of Man, JESUS the CHRIST of CALVARY, and not just another angel. The Son of Man is a part of the Church, redeemed from this earth by His Own blood. He is the Head of the Church, living in His glorified Body as the High Priest.

The Angel at the altar is a part of the Church, as are all the other Seven angels. He is fulfilling His office before God, offering incense which is the prayers of God's people on earth.

The sounding of the trumpets will bring upon the earth a prayer meeting from every part of the world, that never has been heard of by the saints.Those who have never seen the importance of prayer, and those who have been slothful, and have missed the High Calling in Christ in the Bride, will cry unto God in sorrow and repentance when they are finally awakened by the move of God through the Last Day ministry.

Jesus, the Head of the Church, is in charge of the Last Day plagues, and warfare of the Saints against sin. He will have all control through the Father, until He has reigned for a thousand years, sitting upon the throne of David. Then all things shall be turned back to the Father. 1 Corinthians 15:24, "Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God even the Father: when He shall have put down all rule and all authority and power."


Every transaction and every judgment upon the earth, by the Church must pass through our High Priest. He stands at the altar of incense before the throne, listening to the cry of the people upon the earth. Although incense is the symbol of prayer, it is ineffective until the fire begins to burn. There are two fires spoken of in the Bible: strange fire, and God's Fire. Aaron's sons took their censers and put incense thereon and offered strange fire before the Lord, and there went out fire from the Lord and devoured them, and they died before the Lord:
Leviticus 10:1-2 ”And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not.... And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD.”

The Fire of God is the Fire of the Altar of Sacrifice, which GOD-KINDLED. This Fire ignites the incense of prayer. It creates action, a smoke, the evidence of a Sacrifice. The Fire that ignited the candles, the incense, and the burnt sacrifices is taken from the brazen altar of Sacrifices that God kindled and was never permitted to go out,
Leviticus 6:12-13 ”And the fire upon the altar shall be burning in it; it shall not be put out: and the priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and lay the burnt offering in order upon it; and he shall burn thereon the fat of the peace offerings.... The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall never go out.”

All who have resisted the Fire in their prayer to God will understand why they missed the Bride in THAT DAY, when they begin to cry aloud in much tears and repentance. When the Fire of God begins to burn in their souls they no longer will deny or resist the power of God in prayer, nor shall they be afraid someone will laugh at them.

At last they will have been awakened to their frightful condition. The perils of the Antichristal spirit will at that time be running rampant. At last, they will realize that their security rests in prayer to God. The sure way their cries will be heard is when the anointing of Fire is upon them. The High Priest stands before God the Father, receiving the prayers from earth and pleading the cause of His people with the sweetness of incense.

 All prayers must pass through Him (JESUS) to reach the Father. He will be the Judge of all prayers. Only the JUST and RIGHTEOUS prayers will He plead.
Ephesians 2:18
, "For through Him (Jesus) we both
have access by one Spirit unto the Father,"........Hebrews 13:15, "By HIM therefore, let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name."

1 Peter 2:5 "Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, ACCEPTABLE to God by JESUS CHRIST."

Revelation 8:4 "And the smoke of the incense, which came up with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand."
The smoke was the incense of the prayers of God's people on earth, which prayers came upon the altar in heaven when the Fire began to burn in their souls. They were being offered by the hand of Jesus, to rise in the smoke of the incense. Jesus is our Advocate with the Father. He is our Intercessor, our Mediator before the Father. He stands at the altar of incense pleading our cause, even as Moses pleaded the cause of Israel.

                                FIRE FROM THE ALTAR

Revelation 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.".............It is the same fire that burned on the altar of sacrifice on earth.

Jesus sent the Comforter. The Comforter was sent to bring the Church into perfection. Now the Fire is sent to anoint the Church with Fire for the ministry. The Fire was cast into the earth by Jesus. He is the Head of His Body, His Army on earth. The Fire is taken from the altar of God. It is the Fire that consumes the incense of prayer. It is the anointing of Fire and power upon the Church, the anointing of action through the Church which creates the voices of the Church.

The first trumpet is prepared to sound. The voice of God is ready to sound. It will roar forth throughout the earth in the Gospel message, it is like the thunder of heaven. The lightning will flash through the earth in the illumination of God the Father and the Gospel of Salvation. This is Zion upon the mount in the presence of God.

Mount Horeb is called the Mount of God. The presence of God was Seen by Israel in the Fire upon the Mount. The whole mountain was on fire, and Moses was in the midst thereof. The voice of God was heard, and lightning flashed, and the mount began to quake to and fro. 
This foreshadows the Church, when the Fire of God comes upon Her from the Altar in heaven. It is the presence of God upon Mount Zion, (the Church). Great fear will fall upon those who stand at the base of the Mount. God's voice will be heard through Her. Thunder will sound, lightning will flash, and the earth will quake before Them.

Joel 2:10-11 "The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:... And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?"

God Is a consuming Fire. His Spirit of Fire is sent to the Church to bring judgment upon the earth. Fire was used in bringing judgment upon Sodom and Gomorrah,
Genesis 19:24 “Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;.” Coals of Fire were taken from between the Cherubims and scattered   over the city, Ezekiel 10:2 ”And he spake unto the man clothed with linen, and said, Go in between the wheels, even under the cherub, and fill thine hand with coals of fire from between the cherubims, and scatter them over the city. And he went in in my sight.”

Malachi 4:1 " For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch."
  


PREPARATION FOR THE MINISTRY

                                                           Revelation 8:6-7

Revelation 8:6-7  ”And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound... 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 casting of Fire upon the earth concludes the setting of the stage for the beginning of the LAST DAY MINISTRY. The Seven Angels which had the Seven Trumpets prepared to sound. The stage was set in heaven. The Father sits upon His throne, and the Elect has been PERFECTED. The Seven Trumpeters have been made ready.

The Trumpets were given into Their hands. The GREATEST WIRELESS SYSTEM EVER KNOWN IS READY TO GO INTO OPERATION FROM HEAVEN TO EARTH. The altar of Incense has been set up to RECEIVE THE PRAYERS OF HIS SAINTS ON EARTH. EVERY PETITION, EVERY CRY FOR HELP, EVERY NEED FOR THE GREAT WARFARE THAT THEY ARE ABOUT TO ENTER INTO ON EARTH, EVERY REQUEST WILL IMMEDIATELY BE FLASHED TO THE ALTAR, where the PRIEST IS STANDING TO PASS THEM TO THE FATHER.

He (Jesus) Is the Captain of His Army on earth. He is the Great Commander. He is the Head that controls every move of His Army, even as a traffic air controller directs a plane.The Church has been anointed with Fire from the Altar. The time is ready for Her ministry to begin upon earth, and the first Trumpet is ready to sound.





THE FIRST TRUMPET SOUNDS


Revelation 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."

Micah 7:15-16 "According to the days of thy coming out of the land of Egypt will I shew unto him marvellous things...The nations shall see and be confounded at all their might: they shall lay their hand upon their mouth, their ears shall be deaf."

Jeremiah 23:7-8 "Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that they shall no more say, The Lord liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;...But, The Lord liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land."

As He gathered His people out of Egypt, so shall He gather Them that He has scattered throughout the earth. The same plagues which was used on Egypt, will be seen again, and they shall say no more, "The God that delivered Israel", but they shall say,"The God that delivered His people in THIS DAY". All shall know that He is not only the GOD OF THE PAST, but that HE STILL LIVES IN THIS PRESENT DAY.

The very first plague which will be delivered through the Church involves the blood, which blood the world rejected when they crucified the Son of Man. The ONLY Life that can protect them and save them is being manifested through the Church by the use of plagues. The plagues are a reminder of the crucifixion of Jesus, and a warning for them to repent before greater plagues fall upon them. God is a righteous God, yet He is a merciful God. This is a call from the Church in the FINAL Revival. A call from the Trumpet, or the VOICE OF GOD.

A third part of the trees and all green grass were destroyed by hail, fire and blood. The third part is symbolic, of course, and a reminder of the crucifixion of Christ which involves the third part of the Family in heaven. The sounding of the first four Trumpets presents this warning by the plagues of a third part being involved.

The Early Church was commanded to take Their ministry of salvation to the Jews first. The Jews of that day were the instigators of the crucifixion of Christ, and they fought against the preaching of Jesus and His resurrection. They were antichristal promoters of that day, and they will be preached to and drawn to God in the days of these plagues. The signs and plea of the Church will go first to Israel.

Hail and fire are used in the plagues of judgment, always as a destructive agent,
Isaiah 28:2 "Behold, the Lord hath a mighty and strong one,which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand."

Isaiah 28:17 "Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place."........Hail and fire were used in the plagues of judgment in Egypt at the deliverance of Israel, Read it in Exodus 9:22-28, Hail will be used once again.

Exodus 9:22-28
22. And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt.
23. And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt.
24. So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.
25. And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field.
26. Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.
27. And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the LORD is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.
28. Entreat the LORD (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer.

Revelation 16:21 "And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent; (115 lbs) and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great."

This weapon (hail) is used in the Battle of Armageddon. The Elect will have Their part therein as the Great Army, the clean-up Army. The plagues and judgments will be just as literal through the Church as they were through Moses, whom God prepared as the vessel used to deliver Israel. It is hard for some to believe that there could be hail and fire mingled with blood cast out of heaven in a literal sense, but history has recorded some of the reports in the world, where they have seen snow and hail rained like blood, and it is not unusual to see fire come forth out of lightning.

November 17, 1920, China reported such an event. And again, on August 17, 1819, Captain Ross saw snow at Baffin's Bay, which covered about eight miles, and was blood red and many feet deep.

The Bible says that a third part of the trees are destroyed. A tree is symbolic of a life and Jesus is said to be the Tree of Life. In the hour that these plagues and destruction are happening, they will be understood by hordes of the antichristal Jews, for they will be made to recall the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

                          

THE SECOND TRUMPET SOUNDED


Revelation 8:8-9
"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..... 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.”..............A third part of sealife is symbolic of the third part of humanity and the blood of the sea is typical of human blood. Although these plagues actually take place, the world is made to know and understand the meaning thereof.

The sound as of a great mountain, (Mount Zion, the Church, upon the Mount) to Whom the Fire was given from heaven to cast into the sea of humanity. As Moses stretched forth his rod, so does the Trumpeter sound from the Church. A warning goes forth from the Church; a warning of Her POWER IN JUDGMENT.

At the Sound of the first Trumpet, only a third part of the vegetation was moved upon. But at the sound of the second Trumpet, one third of the life was taken from the sea. The plagues become gradually more serious. Can such a thing come to pass as the waters being turned to blood?

Exodus 7:20-21 “ And Moses and Aaron did so as the Lord commanded, and he lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharoah, and in the sight of his servants, and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood..... And the fish that was in the river died;” Psalms 78:44 ” And had turned their rivers into blood; and their floods, that they could not drink.” Psalms 105:29 "He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish."....It actually happened in Egypt, and it will come again when the
plagues of God's judgment comes forth in the Last Days.


THE THIRD TRUMPET SOUNDS


Revelation 8:10- 11 "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;... 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.”

Listen to the prophecy of this plague.....Jeremiah 9:13-15 "And the LORD saith,Because they have forsaken my law which I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice, neither walked therein;... But have walked after the imagination of their own heart, and after Baalim, which their fathers taught them:...Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will feed them, even this people, with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink."

A star is the symbol of a Spirit-filled saint, and when it is used with the word FELL or FALL, it signifies the falling away from grace. This star fell from heaven, which relates and connects Him with Lucifer, Who is called Satan, and Who fell from the relationship and the righteousness of God in heaven.

This fallen Star is the future Antichrist, one of the twelve Spirit-filled Apostles Who falls from grace. He is the Judas of the Church Who sells out to Satan. This fallen One will gain favor with the Satanic world because of His great wisdom of the Word of God and the movements of the Church. He will reveal the secrets of the Church, and He will use the sacred transaction of the birth of the Manchild to twist the minds of thousands of saints and bring persecution upon the Church, thus causing wholesale backslidings.

The eyes of the world will be upon Him and great favor will be shown Him even with those of the Christian world, because of His previous place among the Apostles.2 Thessalonians 2:3 "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;"

The Apostle Paul was a favorite of the Jews because He persecuted the Church and hated all Christians, but when the change came into His life. He used His previous experience and knowledge to turn the Jews from Their traditions. And so will it be with the Fallen Star; He will use His previous experience and knowledge by falsifying it with a counterfeit of the truth.

The Antichrist is not the Beast of Revelation 13:1 (Read Here) . 2 Thessalonians 2: 3-4,“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;.. Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” This is the fore-runner to the revelation of the Antichrist….

2 Thessalonians 2:11 “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:” and Romans 1:21-32 , God will turn them over to their own ways and cause them to believe a lie. Demon worship will be set up on earth and Satan will be worshipped as God...

Romans 1:21-32
21.   Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22.    Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23.    And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24.   Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25.   Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26.    For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27.   And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.
28.   And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29.   Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30.    Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31.   Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32.   Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

This is not Satan, but it is a man Who has been filled with all the poison and bitterness of Satan. He is called Wormwood and makes His appearance to oppose the Church in the early part of Her ministry. His ministry brings into view, the beginning of the great falling away, as is foretold in:
2 Thessalonians 2:3 ”Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;.”

There will be a great deception of those who at one time served the Lord in the imagination of their own hearts, who followed the teachings of their fore-fathers in Christianity BY BELONGING TO A CHURCH WHO REJECTS THE HOLINESS OF THE LORD.

The Fallen Star, Who has all knowledge of God and the Church knows the weak points, how to approach the lukewarm Christians and tear down what they have been taught about Christ. Millions will turn away from the Church and follow this Star, even as the angels of heaven followed Lucifer.

This Star, which is connected with the fall from heaven, is the Judas of the Last Day Apostles, Who was rejected from the Church, He is the Star that comes burning as a lamp. He comes as an angel of light in great deception. He comes as a Lamb. He is the False Prophet, Who deceives by means of these miracles, and many men die because of the bitterness of the waters. Water is symbolic of Spiritual Life. The Spiritual life of the water of Satan is the bitterness of death: when life is cut off from God.

This is not the time of great tribulation of Revelation chapter 13 (See Scriptures Here) , but it is the same Beast or False Prophet Who is raised up out of the EARTH, manifesting Himself in wisdom and character and power to be selected as a Leader of demonic energy in His time. He will serve under the Leadership of the first Beast Who is raised up out of the sea in their time.

Revelation 13:1” And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy”


As we watch the formation of the nations, we shall see this great man who turns as a Traitor from the faith of Christ, to gain riches and power of the world, and Who will eventually be elected by the Antichristal world, to become the False Prophet, the Antichrist.

The fall of this Star with all His wisdom and knowledge of the Church, will gain a following, even as Lucifer led many of the angels in heaven with Him when He fell. He will be granted power of miracles, like unto the power to do miracles that was granted unto the magicians in opposition to Moses. Those who die by literally drinking of the bitter waters, will belong to the Antichrist as well as those who drink of the bitter poison of His Spirit of Sin.

Just as the Church was allotted a special time to begin Her great ministry of the final Revival on earth, at the opening of the seventh seal, so is the time for the release of the great revival of sin upon the earth at the sounding of the third Trumpet. God had appealed to all Israel by plagues of judgment and the loud voices of thunderings and lightnings in the Gospel of Truth through the Church.

The fall of the Star, Wormwood, is the beginning of the bitterness and poison of the revival of sin. The Antichristal Spirit rises up against the Church just as they rejected Christ and the miracles performed by the Apostles through the Church.



    THE FOURTH TRUMPET SOUNDS


Revelation 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."

Notice that the third part of the grass and trees were burnt up at the sounding of the first Trumpet. The third part of the seas became blood, and the third part of the sea life died at the sounding of the second Trumpet: And a third part of the rivers and fountains were poisoned at the sounding of the third Trumpet: and a third part of the sun, moon, and stars were darkened at the sounding of the fourth Trumpet.

At the Crucifixion, the sun was darkened for three hours. It is a reminder and a warning continually before Israel, by the Church, of the Crucifixion, while the Church is making a plea for Israel's souls. The plea to Israel through the darkening of the sun, moon, and stars, declares the majesty and power of the church, and this is followed with the warning of the three woes that are yet to follow.

The last plague of the Church will create distress and perplexity of the nations. Men's hearts will fail them in fear, by looking on those things which are coming on the earth. For the powers of heaven shall be shaken. Luke 21:25-26 "And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;...Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken."


THE ARMY OF GOD


Joel chapter 2 (See Here)......The undeniable statements recorded in this chapter cannot be neglected because of the lack of understanding, and yet expect to receive knowledge of the Last Day prophecies. Although Joel is one of the minor prophets, God has used him to bring one of the greatest transactions of His motivated Plan of Salvation. The Army of God is said to be Zion, God's Chosen Vessel. They are the Elect of His People which will gather at His Second Coming. The Trumpet is blown from within Zion, (the Army) and it sounds an alarm in the Holy Mountain to prepare for His coming.

The ELECT of THAT DAY will be a great People and with great supernatural strength. There has never been a People like Them before, nor shall there be hereafter. They are protected by the Flame of Fire of God before Them and behind Them. The battle is set in array and They are a strong People. They thoroughly cover the cities and the territories where ever They go. The earth shall quake before Them, and the heavens shall tremble. The Lord shall utter His voice before Them and execute His Word.This is the great Last Day Ministry of the Lord and His Elect for the souls of men.

 Joel 2:1-11,
1.   Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh,for it is nigh at hand;
2.  A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.
3.  A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
4.  The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.
5.   Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.
6.   Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.
7.  They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall
like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:
8.   Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.
9.  They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like
a thief.
10. The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
11.  And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is
very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?

Study the remaining part of this chapter. Joel 2:31-32 , "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD COME...

The third chapter is a continuation of the second chapter of Joel....

Joel 3:12-21
12. Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.
13. Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the vats overflow; for their wickedness is great.
14. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.
15.The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the  stars shall withdraw their shining.
16.The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice  from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall  shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and  the strength of the children of Israel.
17. So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my
holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.
18.And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the LORD, and shall water the valley of Shittim.
19. Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land.
20. But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation.
21. For I will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed: for the LORD dwelleth in Zion.
