The Seals, the Trumpets, and the Woes of Revelation
The Seals, the Trumpets, and the Woes of Revelation
The setting of this Blog, "After the Rapture of Church". God calls the Church , "Up". Chaos begins on Earth. No more mercy as we know it today in the body of Christ. The Hinderer of God's Wrath (The Holy Spirit) is pulled out and resides in Heaven. The dead in Christ and those alive in Christ are in Heaven with Christ and the Holy Spirit. Tribulation like no other Tribulation known in the history of humanity begins on Earth. Within this Tribulation God also uses Angels to minister His Wrath and Judgment upon humanity. Even the Devil (allowed of God for a season) attempts to build his Kingdom on Earth. Within the Devil's Kingdom on Earth, the Antichrist sits upon his throne and rules the Beast Kingdom, rules the governments of our world, rules the world economy, and rules the world's religious society. Within this dictatorship the whole Gentile world turns against the nation of Israel and gather together to make war in Armeggedon.
During this period of seven years that's broken into two... 3 1/2 year periods, this is where the Seals, the Trumpets, and the Woes are ministered upon men around the globe, by God Almighty. The seals pertain to the Wrath of God placed upon humanity as a result of missing the Rapture of the Church. The Trumpets pertain to the Judgment of God that men face within the economical, the religious, the political, and the military structure upon the Earth. The woes are the sufferings within humanity that become so dependant on darkness and the powers of darkness that men became delirious and overtaken by evil. The one World government rules and dictates men. The Military inertia in the world is controlled by Satan. The target is Israel, God's Elect. The whole World comes against Israel as God continues to gather His chosen from the four corners of the Earth. This Tribulation for seven years? Is a Jewish Tribulation. It is a period of time for Israel's reckoning. The Wrath and the Judgment of an angry God during this time is a way for God to reach the heart of Israel to set up His Kingdom prepared from the foundation of the World. The "delusion" God sends upon humanity is part of Israel's rejection of Christ that takes place...between the death of Christ and the Rapture of the Church.
The locusts are the miltary inertia upon the Earth. The military at this time is under the rule of Satan who desires to capture humanity and take over because the Church is gone. The hinderer of Satan (The Holy Spirit) is gone. The mercy and love of God as we know it in the Church is gone. Evil men wax worse and unify under Satan's dominion. God's wrath is loosed and Judgment from God Almighty is allowing these locusts (military forces) to overtake those men who did not have the seal of God in their hearts and thinking. This overtaking of humanity who received not the love of truth allowed God to create strong delusion in these multitudes...like the sting of scorpion. Think about the actual sting of a scorpion. This sting of a natural scorpion makes men delirious, tainted, and out of their minds in pain and torment. Without hope. Tormented during the Great Tribulation.
Revelation 9:2-11...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. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 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. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. 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. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. 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. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. 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.
Within this seven year Jewish Tribulation setting predicted by the Apostle John men will die for the cause of Christ. Only few will not accept the mark of the beast. Some will be beheaded and some will live and be living when Christ steps down on the Mount of Olives. When Christ steps down... the Earth will have been sanctified with fire and the elements will have melted with fervert heat. When Christ comes back a second time he will come for Isreal. The Church (all the saints) will be with Him. All of Isreal will accept Him at this time. He will separate the goats and the sheep. The Kingdom of Heaven will begin in Jerusalem. Christ will begin His Earthly reign on the Throne of His Father David. The redeemed Saints (Tribulation Saints) will worship Him as the Messiah. The Raptured Saints will reign with Him as Kings and priests. This writer will be there. Glory! He's coming and I'm ready.
Just remember. When He comes back a second time for Isreal (with the Raptured Church) ...There will be no more Seals (God's Wrath). There will be no more Trumpets (God's ministering of Judgment). There will be no more Woes (Human agony and torment within society).
I'm ready! Are you?
