Voices From Heaven Say, “Come and See!”
A White horse gallops out of Heaven! The beasts of heaven say, “Come and See.” ” And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. ” (Revelation 8:1) “Thus far, the heavenly courts have been portrayed as filled with praise and song. Now all is silent in awesome expectancy of the things that that are about to occur. So understood, this silence of the seventh sal forms a bridge between the opening of the seals and the blowing of the trumpets, for it imiplies that with the 7th Seal, the Revelation is not complete! There is still more to be explained concerning the God’s program of events in the Great Controversy with evil.” Seventh Day Adventist Bible Commentary on Revelation p. 787.
Seven Angels Stood ready to announce forth coming divine judgments by sounding the trumpet, given to them by God.
The Lamb that was slain is worthy to open the Seals. In Revelation 8, “the seven angels in heaven stood before God. In the vision the seven angels blow their trumpets to announce forth coming divine judgments.” SDA Bible Commentary p. 787.
We expect to see Jesus Christ in heaven. Instead we see an Angel: Before Jesus came as man, He was known as Michael the Great Prince of God, Michael the Archangel, in charge of all the angels, along with Lucifer. “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!” Isaiah 14:12
“And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. 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. And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand. 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.
In one verse, the angel acting as our High Priest, is Michael, but it is Jesus Christ to the Christians, Jesus the King of the Jews, who is Our High Priest, throwing down the coals of fire, to purify the earth, with the Holy Spirit.
And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
The Day of God’s Wrath is not an idle warning. To fear God is to show Him respect and dignity. When he feels slighted, He becomes our enemy, like he used the King of Babylon to over take Jerusalem, and the “children” went into slavery.
Isa 63:10 But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.
We may fear the “enemy” but I fear God will keep His promise! And I laugh! “All who call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.” Romans 10:13
“For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. (Romans 10:10,11).
According to the Bible, God’s plan is right on schedule!
SWORD in Bible Language is the SWORD OF TRUTH…AND HOLY SPIRIT.
WARNING: And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth. (Revelation 18:24.) She is used for the false church. She sits on her “beast” like a “whore with a golden cup”, tempting men to drink, and become intoxicated with her love.
