Rev 8:1 And when he [The Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, as Michael the Arch Angel] had opened the
seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
Rev 8:2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. [Seven the number of completion in the Mystery of Godliness, as superior to men]
Rev 8:3 And another angel [messenger] 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. [Jesus our High Priest]
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.
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.
Rev 8:6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
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. [A literal translation is frightening, however these are not the plagues, they are judgments on GODS CHURCH LEADERS! In anticipation of false prophets, false servants, and liars who misrepresent Jesus Christ and God the Father. Judgment begins with Gods ancient people first. Ezekiel 9].
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; 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. [This sounds like a BLOCKBUSTER MOVIE. However, it fulfills the principal of Isaiah 63:10: But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.] [[Mervyn Maxwell (1886-1970) translated this prophecy, if you can image, “A third World Army invanding Washington ‘D.C. and setting fire to the Pentagon and White House.]] [Don’t forget the judgment on Washington D.C.]
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;
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. [The devil will be satisfied to make us bitter, if he can’t get us to sin against God, being grumpy is ok with him]
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. [Man cannot control the Sun to shine, when God’s plan is to glorify Himself, as The Creator and Maker of Lucifer and his angels, who will have die, because THEY DESTROY. . . Truth . . .and promote war.] PROPHECY IS BEING FULFILLED TODAY!
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!
Rev 9:1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven [Lucifer is defeated, His name is associated with his city, Babylon, and the Woman who rides the beast, is she, the Whore, who has tempted me to do unseemly things, and be unloyal to God] unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. Rev 9:2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. Rev 9:3 And there came out of the smoke locusts [locust destroy, and eat the crops] upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. [scorpions get cornered and sting themselves, rather than fight – much like a terrorist]
Rev 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. [Those obedient to the Ten Commands of Jesus Kingdom of Truth, are loyal to their Creator, and glorify God the Father. Loyalty to God is to pray and invite God to show up, and heal the sick and raise the dead.]
Rev 9:5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented
five months: [A period of time] and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
Rev 9:6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. [This Kingdom of “unbelief” in God, was raised up in 700’s known as the followers of Mohammed. Their goal was to destroy “idols” and plunder churches for their gold . . .they attempted to enter Europe, but were held back by war against the Arabs as Charles of Germany united with Pope, to discourage these marauding Sarcens.
Rev 9:7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. Rev 9:8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. Rev 9:9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. Rev 9:10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
Rev 9:11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. [In English the name for the angel of the bottomless pit is THE DESTROYER.]
Rev 9:12 One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
Rev 9:13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Rev 9:14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. [It was prophesied right here, the area of the Euphrates was being held back by four angels of God. When released you can expect the down trodden Sacren/Arabs/Muslims to rebel against God and man, who do not bow down to their god.]
ARRIVAL OF GODS HORSEMEN ON WHITE HORSES, with a banner of Red, Gold and Blue on the breastplates. RED: is for the blood of Jesus Christ given you, for freedom to choose His Way, to live in peace. GOLD: is for characters tried in the fiery furnace of affliction, to carry the cross, and understand loyalty to Gods Kingdom of Truth. BLUE: is like the heavens above, God is loyal to those who defend his Kingdom of Truth, like Jesus and His Apostles.
Rev 9:15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. [When God plans to defend His people, the angels who held back the evil angels, come to our rescue! Under the leadership of Michael the Archangel, God has caused the devil and his angels “to fall” because we use HIS NAME…Jesus Christ is our Lord. “Whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.” Romans 10:13″ And this will cause the loyal to God, TO BELIEVE…100% that Jesus Christ is Our King!]
Rev 9:16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. Rev 9:17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. Rev 9:18 By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. [A reminder of what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah!] Rev 9:19 For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.
Rev 9:20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the
works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Rev 9:21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
God is closing the doors to His Temple in Heaven . . .He does not want to see, or hear those who have rejected His grace, so long overdue is His revenge for sin, and now is the time to vindicate His saints and prophets.
Rev 18:20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. [Don’t ask me to smile and be happy! Don’t tell me “They were not warned.” for “they” have had these prophecies since 1915, over 100 years, when Ellen White wrote them, long before the world would see, 9-11-2001. It is a shame when a church, denies its own Prophetess and Prophet, Mervyn Maxwell who wrote before his death in 1970…the Second ‘Angel of Revelation 8:8,9 is comparable to 9-11-2001, not in New York City, but against the White House and Pentagon!]
For a minute, let’s forget about Ellen White. It was Jesus who gave the prophecy of Revelation 8:8,9 to his disciple John the beloved, the translator of Revelation. Would you crucify Jesus and his disciple for warning us against apostasy in the church and world, by sending us a divine revelation of what WAR WITH GOD, would be like, if we want to rebel against Him and vex His Holy Spirit? You have had the Bible, for how many years? John wrote Revelation in 95 A.D. Will you silence HIS VOICE? And be the like Jews who crucify Jesus and his disciples? Other sheep have I.
[2015-95 A.D. = 212 years, we have this promise in the Bible of war against those who war against Gods people. But it could only be OPENED, by the understanding of 9-11-2001, opening the prophecy of DANIEL, and MICHAEL STANDING UP TO PROTECT AND DEFEND THOSE WHOSE NAME ARE IN THE BOOK.]
Rev 18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. [What violence is planned by God for the overthrow of Babylon? Babylon as a city has ceased to exist for hundreds of years. In fact, the devil was overthrown, the day Jesus rose from the dead. Our trust and faith must be in the power of the name of Jesus]
Rev 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: [THE SILENCE OF GOD IS LIKE THUNDER, for He has spoken through His Prophet and Disciple John the beloved, will we listen?] for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. Rev 18:24 And in her [The great whore, who caused the men of the earth to be intoxicated with the wine of her fornication] was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
The sin of Balaam was to bring the men of God to their death, by leaving the protection of God and going to other gods of flesh.
The fall of the Roman Empire, was due to immorality. . .man’s inhumanity to man.
The 7th Commandment is to not commit adultery against God, it is perhaps the greatest command of God. Those who walk away from God’s protecting hand, and angels, are walking on sand, instead of standing on the ROCK, the FOUNDATION, of God, is Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit in your heart, for all mankind He has died for!
Rev 10:7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, [Seven Angels were given to the 7 Churches in Revelation] when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
Rev 10:8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.
Rev 10:9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
JESUS IS COMING LIKE A THIEF! This is GOOD NEWS! And when I speak it, I feel good! And when I hear it, His coming makes me feel happy! So, do more speaking about His love, His mercy, His presence, and be loyal to His Laws, for they rule the Universe. He is coming! Praise the Lord! This may be the YEAR OF OUR LORD!
