Pamphlet 1894 Rev. kc 43-3
who don't "make it" in the first resurrection
will be called "the dead" during the Millennium.
Keep it simple. There's nothing complicated here at all!
Here's the 2nd Trump and 2nd Vial. Sound the Trumpet and Pour the Vial.
Hopefully you remember what the "sea" is from the times we referred to Rev. 17:15. The sea and waters are the peoples of the earth. As a refresher, here it is again: Rev. 17:15 "And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues."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. 16:3 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.
Now notice in 16:3 that it is "every living soul died". Again it is "everyone in Rev. 16:3" meaning it is every living person who worships the image of the beast. And do you know that those who don't "make it" in the first resurrection and who must go through the Millennium, i.e. all those in Rev. 16:3, are and will be called "the dead" during that period.
Note: We're not going to go into great detail about what the Vials are since they are the same as the Trumps. If you don't remember what the Trumps are then you should go back to chapter 8 and review each one. The great burning mountain, if you recall, is His Word!
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.
