Title: THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST


1
THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
And I saw the seven angels who stand before God,
and to them were given seven trumpets.

2
THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
  • REVELATION CHAPTERS 8-9

  • Each set of seven -unfolds into the other
  • Not Chronological 3 vignettes interspersed with
    other vignettes, signs and scenes.
  • The 7 Seals unfolding of general history
  • The 7 Trumpets unfolding of last days a
    focused look at the generation of the End Times
  • The 7 Bowls The outpouring of Gods Wrath after

THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
  • In scripture, trumpets are used at the
    following occasions
  • 1. To announce disaster because of sin,
    Is.581, Jer.44-6, 61,16-19, 5125-29,
    Ezek. 331-8, Hos.716, 81,
    Amos 36.
  • 2- To announce the coming of God to Mt.
    Sinai, Ex.1916
  • 3- Calling the people together and having the
    camp move on, Num.102.
  • 4- To announce the start of a battle, and
    feast days, Num.109-10.
  • 5- When the Israelites entered Jericho,
    Josh.63-9
  • 6- To announce the coronation of the king
    (Solomon), 1K.134.
  • 7- To announce the winning of a battle,
    1Sam.133
  • 8- Warning of the second coming, Joel 21
  • 9- To announce the second coming, 1Thes.416,
    Zep.114-18, Mat.2431,

  • 12- To announce the arrival of the ark of the
    covenant into Jerusalem, 1Chr.1524.

THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
  • REVELATION CHAPTERS 8-9
  • Chapters 8-9 - the 7 (perfect, complete)
    trumpets (sounds of warning, announcing a coming
    battle and coming King!) These trumpets mark the
    end time generation
  • Jesus Matthew 24 I tell you the truth, this
    generation will certainly not pass away until all
    these things have happened.
  • The 7th SEAL opens up into the 7 Trumpetsa
    backing up of the general revelation of the seals
    and a focused look on the very end time..

5
THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
  • Important to remember
  • The word trumpet is used only 6 times in the
    New Testament OUTSIDE the book of Revelation. In
    FOUR of those times it refers to the LAST
    trumpet or the trumpet that is blown at the
    return of Jesus! (I Corinthians 1552 2x,
    Matthew 2431, I Thessalonians 416)
  • The other two Hebrews 1219 refers to the O.T.
    trumpet blown on Mt. Sinai at the giving of the
    Law and the other I Corinthians 148, refers to
    speaking in intelligible tongues as opposed to
    gibberish or ecstatic utterances.
  • ANDThe ONLY place in the New Testament where a
    series of Trumpets is mentioned that would
    include a LAST TRUMPET is in Revelation! If
    we let the Bible interpret the Bible, then the
    last trumpet of the Second Coming mentioned
    elsewhere in the New Testament would have to
    correspond with the 7th trumpet of Revelation,
    and indicate the second Coming of Jesus!
  • (Interesting note the ONLY other place in the
    Bible where 7 TRUMPETS are mentioned is in Joshua
    when at the blowing of the 7th trumpet Gods
    people took and defeated JERICHO (the world) and
    ENTERED THE PROMISED LAND! (Heaven)
  • READ
    THE TEXT REVELATION 8 1- 13

6
THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST

  • REVELATION 81-11
  • THE
    FIRST THREE TRUMPETS
  • IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER
  • 1. Written in apocalyptic, symbolic imagery
  • 2. John was shown things He had never seen nor
    could imagine!
  • 3. He tried to describe things the very best he
    could with the words he had.
  • 4. This style writing was given by the Holy
    Spiritbecause it serves ALL GENERATIONS and has
    its ULTIMATE revelation when it occurs in the End
    Generation.
  • 5. 1/3 a symbolic number (perhaps literal in
    some cases) indicating a significant amount but
    NOT ALL, not even MOST 2/3s of the earth
    DOESNT EXPERIENCE these things! 2 billion
    people affected, 4 billion people of the earth
    not affected. Also consider that these things
    may happen PRIMARILY in the MIDDLE EAST and
    EUROPE since this is where most Bible activity
    and prophecy centers!
  • Trumpet One Perhaps ecological disasters.
  • Trumpet Two - Perhaps saltwater pollution on a
    large scale.
  • Trumpet Three Perhaps freshwater pollution on a
    large scale.
  • (If this is the interpretation
    Thenwe are in the TRUMPET DAYS!)

7
THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
  • BUTTHERE ARE THOSE WHO SEE THINGS even more
    related to our times
  • For example
  • Why would WWII, not be mentioned in the
    scriptures and especially in REVELATION? It was
    the LARGEST WAR in the History of the EARTH,
    involving more nations from practically the whole
    globe than any other war in history- and more
    people were killed in it than in ANY other WORLD
    in HISTORY! It was the FIRST war to use a
    NUCLEAR WEAPON!
  • Consider the following 4 or 5
    facts of history

8
THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 1. Hitler had a scorched earth
    policy he left behind devastating disaster of
    burned trees, grass, fields, homes, towns,
    cities
  • He did this with bombs from the air,
    tanks, flame throwers, set fires, etc. and
    there came hail, and fire, mixed with blood, and
    it was hurled down upon the earth. / and 1/3
    of the earth, grass and trees were burned up
  • The devastation of this type to Europe
    left by ALL THE FORCES in the war was
    UNSPEAKABLE.
  • Could this be what John saw, but couldnt
    describe in any other way?
  • THEN JOHN SAIDI SAW
  • 2. Something like a huge mountain, ALL
    ABLAZE was thrown into the sea.

9
THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 2. Something LIKE a huge mountain, ALL ABLAZE
    was thrown into the sea.

10
THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
  • Captain Robert Lewis, the co-pilot of the plane
    that dropped the bomb, stated, "Where we had
    seen a clear city two minutes before, we could no
    longer see the city. We could see smoke and fires
    creeping up the sides of the mountains."Within
    three miles of the explosion, 60,000 of the
    90,000 buildings were demolished. Clay roof tiles
    had melted together. Shadows had imprinted on
    buildings and other hard surfaces. Metal and
    stone had melted.
  • Unlike many other bombing raids, the goal for
    this raid had not been a military installation
    but rather an entire city. The atomic bomb that
    exploded over Hiroshima killed civilian women and
    children in addition to soldiers. Hiroshima's
    population has been estimated at 400,000
    approximately 70,000 died immediately from the
    explosion and another 70,000 died from radiation
    within five years.

11
THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 140 million of 400,000 people died! Right
    at 1/3 of the entire population!
  • 200 million soldiers fought in WWII from all
    the countries involved. There were 61 million
    casualties againright at 1/3 of all who
    fought!
  • 105,000 ships were used in WWII and over 36,000
    of those ships were destroyed in battle - almost
    EXACTLY 1/3 of the ships!!

  • COINCIDENCE?

12
THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
  • THE MOST AMAZING AND LITERAL fulfillment IS
  • TRUMPET NUMBER THREE
  • A great star blazing like a torch
    fell from the sky
  • Something called wormwood causes large
    amounts of water to turn bitter and many people
    die from drinking the water!
  • Wormwood is a bitter and sometimes poisonous
    herb. It yields a bitter oil and contains the
    toxic chemical thujone, is used to flavor some
    distilled liquors

13
THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
  • Wormwood translated to RUSSIAN
    Chernobyl
  • (The Concise Oxford Dictionary, 6th edition and -
    The Dictionary of the Russian Language by S.
    Ozhegov)
  • Remember the Chernobyl Nuclear Plant meltdown in
    Russia? The plant exploded on April 26, 1986,
    sending a radioactive cloud over much of Europe
  • Listen to the testimony of Hans Blix, Executive
    Director of the International Atomic Energy
    Agency, in a speech given before the UN General
    Assembly on October 23, 1990. To this great body
    he quoted Revelation 810-11 and then said
  • In Slavic languages, including the Ukrainian and
    Byelorussian languages, there is a word
    chernobyl, which means wormwood, bitter grass.
    This has a striking relevance to the Chernobyl
    tragedy. I am no fatalist. I do not believe in
    the blind inevitability of fate, but who can fail
    to be moved by these tragic and mournful words
    from Revelation, which must leave their indelible
    imprint on the heart.

14
THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
  • EXCERPT FROM
  • The Chernobyl Disaster, a
    secular book by Soviet-born Viktor Haynes
  • Relatively speaking, the number of deaths that
    resulted directly from the meltdown itself, about
    125,000, were few compared to the millions who
    have been poisoned with radiation. Over 200
    million are estimated to have experienced excess
    exposure, 3.5 million seriously. But are the
    deaths linked to the water? The first explosion
    came with such a force it blew the two million
    pound concrete lid off of the reactor. It went
    into the air, and came down cocked leaving the
    atmosphere fully exposed to a nuclear fire for
    the next three weeks. (blazing like a torch, it
    fell from the skyonto the rivers)
  • A second explosion hit just a. few seconds after
    the first explosion. Radioactive material was
    blasted one mile up into the sky. The wind caught
    the radiation, and carried it into Scandinavia,
    Northern Italy, Germany, Great Britain and, in a
    diluted form, to the east coast of the United
    States. Then the rains came. It rained
    incessantly for the next five days. The
    radioactivity was transferred from the clouds
    down into the soil. The most deadly thing about
    the rain was that the water flowed into the
    rivers. These deadly rivers then wound their way
    throughout all of Europe.
  • As these waters flowed through Europe, everyone
    who drank of those waters absorbed the nuclide
    Cesium 137 into their body. Cesium 137 has a
    half-life of thirty years. It goes into the bone
    marrow and can lay there for thirty years (until
    2016!) before it causes cancer.
  • Doctors and scientists say that the worst is yet
    to come. Generations will be affected. They do
    not even know how to predict the far reaching
    implications of the Chernobyl nuclear accident.

15
THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 1. Something like a huge mountain ALL ABLAZE
    (Nuclear Bomb?)
  • 2. 1/3 of the creatures in the sea (WWII
    soldiers?) destroyed
  • 3. 1/3 of the creatures in the sea (Population
    of Hiroshima?)
  • 4. 1/3 of the ships destroyed exactly the number
    in WWII destroyed.
  • 5. 1/3 of grass, trees and earth BURNED UP
    (Results of WWII?)
  • 6. Hail and fire mixed with blood coming from
    above (Bombs, rockets, mortars, bullets, air
    wars, ship wars, etc.?)
  • 7. Wormwood (Chernobyl?) (if you were reading a
    RUSSIAN BIBLE it would read and the name of the
    star was CHERNOBYL) The waters turned bitter
    (poisoned) and 1/3 of the people in the area
    DIED.
  • Coincidence or EXACTING PROPHECY?

16
THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
  • IF IT IS EXACTING
    PROPHECYTHEN
  • WE ARE IN THE TRUMPET
    DAYS!
