I’ve had a few supporters and friends ask about the “7 Seals/Trumpets” and if it is a real biblical event to come. This was provoked due to watching the TV show Supernatural. Below are small explanations and or info on the matter broken down by each trumpet. This is a cue for the Apocalypse to begin after or shortly after I believe. The book of Revelations is the 66 book in the bible but I personally don’t know if that has any relations to the number 666.
Associated with this wrath, seven angels appeared before John with seven trumpets. One by one, each angel sounded his trumpet. And as each trumpet sounded, it brought the plagues of the anger of God and the Lamb. Spiritually, this wrath of God began long ago and has continued up to the present day. It is still continuing and will rise to a crescendo at the apex of the reign of the beast who is still to come. And when it does, All these events will become physical, proving once again that in God all things go in pairs by opposites.
The first angel blew his trumpet and as soon as the mysterious notes sounded, hail and fire, mixed with blood, were dropped on the earth; a third of the earth was burned up, and a third of all trees, and every blade of grass was burnt. See Rev. 8:7
In reading these visions, remember that two fulfillments are always involved. One is spiritual, the other is literal. As these trumpets sound, spiritual warfare, catastrophe and violence sweep the earth, taking away the peace from a third of its people. At the very end, John's spiritual visions will invert and become physical -- providing a literal reality to his words. This is true of all the visions listed in the Book of Revelation's pages. In most cases, only the spiritual parts of these visions are explored. Their final physical realites are self-explanatory.
The second angel blew his trumpet, and it was as though a great mountain, all on fire, had been dropped into the sea; a third of the sea turned into blood, a third of all the living things in the sea were killed, and a third of the all ships were destroyed. See Rev. 8:8
The sea is the people. It is also the universe -- the lower waters. The mountain of fire is rage and the hatred which drives it.
The third angel blew his trumpet, and a huge star fell from the sky, burning like a ball of fire, and it fell on a third of all rivers and springs. This was the star called Wormwood, and a third of all water on earth turned bitter with wormwood, so that a great many people died from drinking it. See Rev. 8:10
Out of the rage come philosophies of anger which seduce the mind and hypnotise the wicked into committing terrible sins. We have witnessed this in the teachings of Marx, Trotsky and Lenin and the raving philosophies of human extermination that flowed from the writings of Adolph Hitler. More of this antichrist wormwood is now stirring up a great violence in the Middle East.
Jesus told His disciples, "I saw Satan fall from heaven like lightning." (Luke 10:18). The draconic source of the world's wormwood is made clear in this passage.
The fourth angel blew his trumpet, and a third of the sun and a third of the moon and a third of the stars were struck, so that the light went out of a third of them and for a third of the day there was no illumination. The same was true of the night.
The Gospel will be banned. The Bible will be declared outlaw and burned. The churches of Christ will be expelled and the borders of the dragon's lands, a third of the earth, will be sealed to prevent the message of Christ's salvation from coming in.
John heared the sound of an eagle calling aloud as it flew high over his head, 'Trouble, trouble, trouble, for all the people on earth at the sound of the other three trumpets which the three angels are going to blow." See Rev. 8:12
When the fifth angel blew his trumpet, the first of the three great troubles heralded by this eagle came to pass.
John, in his vision, saw a star that had fallen from heaven on to the earth, and this fallen star was given the key to the shaft leading down to the Abyss. When he unlocked the shaft of the Abyss, smoke poured up out of the Abyss like the smoke from a massive furnace so that the sun and the sky were darkened by it. Out of the smoke dropped locusts which were given the powers that scorpions have on earth: they were forbidden to harm any fields or crops or trees and told only to attack the wicked -- those who were without God's seal on their foreheads. See Rev. 9:1
Here is a reference to the mark of God and baptism in Christ. Anyone who has been baptized will be made immune to the troubles that flow from the trumpet of the fifth angel. This is a key argument in favor of infant baptism. The infants in Egypt whose houses had been washed in the blood of the paschal lamb were spared the ravages of the Avenger at the time of the Exodus. For more on this, refer to Chapter 13 of the 'Clock of God'. This vision in John's sequence initiates the 'three great troubles' which terminate the final moments of the millennium and which precede the arrival of the day of Armageddon.
The locusts which descend on the earth from the smoke pouring out of the Abyss had as their emperor, the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is 'Abaddon', or 'Apollyon' (the destroyer) in Greek. That was the first of the troubles; there are still two more to come. We will see further on that when the shaft leading to this Abyss is unlocked, accompanying all this smoke will be the re-emergence of the dragon who Christ had kept locked there throughout the millennium. Freed, he will come up in fury and mobilize all the nations for war.
When the sixth angel blows his trumpet, the second trouble will begin to occur. John heard a voice come out of the four horns of the golden altar in front of God. It spoke to the sixth angel with the trumpet, and said, 'Release the four angels that are chained up at the great river Euphrates'. These four angels had been put there for this specific moment in time, and now they are to be released to destroy a third of the human race. John was told that this army measured twice ten thousand times ten thousand mounted men. This is the fourth Persian empire, the beast with iron teeth that Daniel spoke about, and it will hurl at the West a huge force. See Rev. 9:13
As this massive army began to build, seven thunderclaps were heard to speak, (see Rev. 10:4) but the angel forbid John from revealing their words. These thunderclaps are words of prophesy, but they are reserved for the final age, and so their messages cannot be revealed until their own time has come. The words that these thunderclaps have been instructed to blare out are already beginning to sound and be heard -- but they are muffled by distance, so few are paying attention. It is certain that one of these thunderclaps was Lucia de los Santos of Fatima whose three prophecies pointing to the imminence of the end times captivated the entire Christian world for several decades, but faded quickly from sight at the very heighth of its fulfillment, blanketed by the elders and disinterest.
Please remember this is how I perceive things when doing my blogs. Just my humble opinion and I have a right to that despite my religious faith is Jesus. I don’t have a denomination as they divide people. Please stop putting me on a pedestal that I must adhere to if I choose not to hide my faith. NO WHERE does it say you have to be free of sin to do what I do. I became Ordained ONLY to further and support my studies. I am not nor will be in any leadership like my father Rev. Auld. I have a past with mistakes. So? Last time I checked Christ didn’t die on the cross of Calvary in vain.
Thank you again for reading my wee little blogs and the kind comments. Feel free to comment and discuss. You can disagree, it’s fine. I wont however, tolerate any type of bullying. Debating in a civil manner is just fine.I also take prayer requests that my fellow friend and Pastor prays over daily. If you are in need of help or have any questions that is ok too.
I also do Skype meetings for people who would like me to explain the possible dangers Demon/Ghost Hunting to they’re teams. No charge of course, but if anyone would like that service please let me know and we’ll set up a time that works for you. Just give me 2 days notice.
