Pamphlet 1871 Rev. kc 31

The 7th and final Trump is sounding!

And the abomination who sits in the temple with his cronies, claiming to be Jesus,
performs yet another of his long line of "religious deeds",
dating back to garden of Eden, beginning with Abel.
He murders them, too!

When we last left the two witnesses they had been slain by the false messiah, Satan,
the one who has taken over the temple in Jerusalem
and is proclaiming to the world that he is Jesus Christ.

There is celebration in the streets and merrymaking around the world as Satan "spins" these two men of God
as evil trouble makers who are without compassion and concern for others.

But be it known, the 7th and final Trump is about to sound.

Rev. 11:11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
You just have to imagine this scene.

Remember back in verse nine what we read concerning these two witnesses?

Rev. 11:9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

Note: Think about how much more difficult this verse was to explain even 100 years ago, before the invention of instantaneous worldwide TV coverage via orbiting satellites. But now, in these last days, this verse can be fulfilled to the magnitude of which it is written. Also, imagine that you lived 2,000 or 3,000 years ago, and you were taken in the spirit to these last days and shown in a vision this technology! When you returned, how would you explain it to your peers?

So by now the world has witnessed the witnesses
(called prophets in vs. 10 - see appendix 189 in the Companion Bible)
rain on their parade,
"tormenting them that dwell on the earth (vs. 10)", exercising the awesome power of God.

 And the abomination who sits in the temple with his cronies, claiming to be Jesus,
performs yet another of his long line of "religious deeds",
dating back to garden of Eden, beginning with Abel.

He murders them, too!

And now the dead bodies of two witnesses lie in an open forum in Jerusalem
with the television cameras continuously focused on them,
making sure nothing happens to their bodies, until at least 3 1/2 days has expired.

But then, when the 3 1/2 days are fulfilled,
God breaths their life back into their bodies and they stand upon their feet!

As you can imagine, this will cause many to wet their pants as a great
and paralyzing fear falls upon all those who are watching.

Meanwhile, those who have the seal of God in their foreheads
know that the 7th Trump is about to sound, and Jesus Christ is about to return.

And the two witnesses hear His voice:

Rev. 11:12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
The world is going to actually see right before their eyes the transfiguration of these two men of God (no gender intended).

What a sight!

But please note: This command. to come up hither, is given only to the two witnesses and not to the church. This is not a "rapture" of the church. Besides, anyway you look at it, this occurs after Satan has been here (he & his do the murdering) and after the great tribulation has taken place, just prior to the 7th Trump. And the church, God's remnant, are still here and also witnessing this great event, as the next verse will document.

[13] And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
The 7th Trump is about to sound,
for we have come to the end of that same hour, that hour of temptation,
of great tribulation such as never was before nor ever shall be again.

And when it does sound, that part of the city which was measured back in verse 1 shall fall,
and when His feet touch the Mount of Olives
(Zech. 14:4) it shall split in two with an earthquake
and the 7,000 fallen angels who left their first habitation (Jude 6), shall perish.

And what of God's elect, His remnant?

They feared God and gave Him glory saying along with the angel of Rev. 14:7 at this same time:

Rev. 14:7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
It is now time for the 3rd and final Woe!
Rev. 11:14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
[15] And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever.
Yes, there certainly will be great voices in heaven saying these things, for there are lot of great people there.

We read about that great assembly gathered together for the unsealing of the Word by the Lamb of God.

One thing we do know for sure.

When Jesus Christ returns with that rod of iron to rule all nations,
and every knee shall bow, it will be for all eternity, even for ever and ever. Amen.

[16] And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,
[17] Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.
Remember back in chapter 6 what the prayers of those who were slain for the Word of God were?
Rev. 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
Well praise God, the time has come and the Day of the Lord,
the Day of Vengeance, has arrived and "how long" is asked no more.
Rev. 11:18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
Let the nations be angry all they want!

They will still bow their knees to the King of kings and Lord of lords.

And there shall be a judgment as the First Resurrection takes place,
and the servants of the Most High will receive eternal life and a double portion of the blessings and rewards from our Father.

What a time it will be!

And it's not too far off!

In fact, it may be much closer than you think!

[19] And the Temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in His Temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.
The Temple of God is opened
and He who sits at the right hand of the Father shall come forth to execute judgment upon all nations.

We will read further details of this judgment when we get to chapter 16 and the 7th Vial.

Notice though what comes out of the Temple in Heaven when it is opened:

Rev. 16:17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.

[18] And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.

These are the exact same events we just read of in Rev. 11:19, except for the hail.

Where's the hail?

Rev. 16:21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
There's the hail!

This happens to those gathered together five verses ago in Rev. 16:16 in the place "called" Armageddon,
which means rendevous, or gathering.

And as you know, Jesus Christ returns to Jerusalem, which is where Satan's crowd will be gathered.

We'll discuss Armageddon and also Hamon-gog of Ezekiel 39 when we get to Rev. chapter 16.

Finally, did you notice that the Ark of the Covenant (verse 19) was located in the Temple in Heaven?

Yet now and then we read in the newspapers that some archeologists
and/or Rabbis believe it might be in a sealed tunnel or under a wall in Jerusalem, etc., etc.

And Hollywood film producers further the interest and ignorance regarding the Ark with movies like "Raiders of the Lost Ark".

Had they looked in the Word of God they would have found it!

Then too, many men seek their salvation through the traditions
and the teachings of their church
and will thus be ashamed and wish the mountains to fall upon them when the 7th Trump sounds and Jesus Christ returns.

Too bad.

Had they looked into the Word of God they would have found it!

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
