Nick Mac.'s comment about verse 8 on 10/19/2014, 5:25pm...

It says it is hurled at earth, and is like a mountain.. sounds to me like it says an Asteroid, as if on fire ie entering earths atmosphere, and lands in the sea..not Europe or on land.. in the Sea. no doubt the blood will be from the many lost in ensuing tsunami 's.. there IS reason we 're told we will all COWER and hide our faces, climb under rocks..

Andy's comment about verse 1 on 8/15/2014, 8:35am...

Same as in other instances of Revelation dealing with time periods and in fact the Bible as whole we must consider the principle 'one day equals one year '. It follows that 24hrs equal 360 days. Consequently, half an hour equals 7.5 days. Note John is saying 'about ' half an hour. We all know the number 7 is God 's symbol of perfection and thus we can safely deduce that 'about 7.5 days ' means in reality 7 days. How could heaven be ever quiet? While God is present this would be impossible if only due to the fact, that the four beasts around the throne 'rest not day and night, saying Holy, holy, holy Lord God Almighty, which was and is and is to come ' Rev 4 8. From the perspective of the beasts the words 'is to come ' make no sense as the Lord is always in their presence. They are talking about Jesus second coming to the earth and John understands it. Now this will be the occasion of millennia, the culmination of long awaited harvest of God 's saints. The quiet in heaven will mean nothing less than the heaven is emptied of its residents as they all take part in this journey to rescue the earthly saints and assist with the resurrection God the Father, Jesus the Son, Holy spirit and the angels plus the lucky humans the Lord has already acquired through the ages i.e. Enoch, Moses, Elijah and the company resurrected at Jesus ' crucifixion. This is the moment when 'He shall send His angels with a great sound of trumpet and they shall gather His elect... ' Matt. 24 31 Note where the action and the sounds are now in the clouds of earth while heaven is silent. To sum it up, we can expect the whole process for the retinue leaving heaven and re entering it again bringing the harvest will occur within the space of 7 earthly days. This may sound as an unusual exposition. Do not get disheartened by seemingly unfitting placement of the verse where it is. It is a mark of Revelation the time sequencing is all mixed up and that for simple reason not everyone will know and understand but those who fervently search for the truth, will.

Revelation ch 8 vs 11 the Wormwood in the Greek Bible is called . Pronounced Apsinthos which, I understand in Ukrainian language is Chernobyl . This is a very bitter plant. In 1986, when the Chernobyl NUCLEAR accident happened, it cost many thousands of lives . It rained for three days and the poisoned waters ran like river everywhere thus spreading the danger. They say that more than 1.000.000 people have died because of that nuclear disaster. So this was after the third trumpet ! If we go backward to the second trumpet , and to verse 9, it says that one third of the ship s were destroyed. This refers to the second World War, when from 105.000 ships involved in the war 36.000 thousand ships were destroyed , burnt or sank. That s one third of the ships . So the second trumpet was the Second world War. It s natural to think that the first trumpet refers to the first World War.

Since an "alter " is a place of sacrifice , and Jesus is the LAST sacrifice , "it is finished " this 'ALTER ' in Heaven must be symbolic, and more like the table where the shewbread was displayed ,in the temple. There is NO "alter " for SACRIFICE in Heaven all SACRIFICING was done on EARTH Jesus sacrifice happened on EARTH ' ,Therefore the souls of the saints MUST be in their graves ON EARTH, asleep ,waiting for the last trump NO BODY is in Heaven OR Hell yet , because the judgement hasnt happened yet ,and wont happen until Christ returns to give his rewards , Rev 22,12

The reason why they changed the word angels to eagles is because that 's what the new world order will be to try and change the true words of god so many will be confused and not know the truth of gods words, please do not read new testaments bible they are all wrong , changed the words of god for there own selfish reasons, remember anyone that changes gods word will be punished, so please read king James bile old testament the first , do not buy all these new bibles hat are being printed and sold hey are false words of god changed! Stay far from them, and stay close to the truth the first words that were written!

 


Jack's comment about verse 8 on 4/17/2014, 2:24pm...

I believe this is an Asteroid that John was shown, some say it was a nuclear blast but a N.B would rise up as would a volcano. But an Asteroid would come in like burning ball being tossed. This will definitely set the beginning of the Great Tribulation and could very well take out the U.S it would have to hit somewhere in the Pacific Ocean in other words where it wouldn 't take out Israel, for obvious prophetic reasons.

I had a vision an angel was yelling out THE 7TH DAY THE 7TH MONTH THE 7TH IS HOLY THE 7TH IS SABBATH THE 7TH SEAL Very powerful vision Jesus sent me an Angel to prepare for this seal to be opened The silence in heaven for the half hour I feel strongly that it is very similar to when we down here give a moment of silence for the deaths of multitudes The martyrs had been crying out for justice when the seal is opened the silence for one half hour is quiet prayer for the multitudes who are getting ready to perish by God s hand of JUSTICE simple as that Joanofarc77 wordpress

It s like a child being born Nine months to develop and be born Then years you can t remember So as life takes a while to be born in the flesh so does death in spirit

Jayne s Revelation Chapter 8 comment on 2 24 2014 9 05pm Can anyone explain why KJV 8 13 says Angel vs other translations that say Eagle I do not know why they changed the writing from Angel to Eagles In Rev 8 13 the original it says Angel However it is correct as America is the Eagle and Ronald Reagan was president in 1981 when the oil fields of Saddam were first lit on fire darkening the sky of 1 3 the earth And Ronald Reagan s voice was dominant in that part of the earth at that time when both the sun and the moon an stars did not yield their light because of Saddam

Can anyone explain why KJV 8 13 says Angel vs other translations that say Eagle

 


Ar's comment on 2/22/2014, 3:16am...

John saw this Angel flying around and warning the inhabitants of the world about the NEXT THREE WOES that will follow and will be catastrophic as it will hit the people God is still giving a chance to the people of the world to repent but they don t as we will see in the next woes This Angel destroyed 1 3 one third of the trees sea fish ships the sun the moon and stars The next chapter talks about the other three Angels and their mission

 


Faithfull's comment about verse 13 on 2/21/2014, 3:49pm...

Revelation 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 Alas woe woe woe to the demons in the earth for what the next three trumpets will sound

 


Faithfull's comment about verse 12 on 2/21/2014, 3:44pm...

Revelation 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 And Saddam lite the oil fields a ablaze and darkened one third of the worlds sky s with the smoke of the burning oil

 


Faithfull's comment about verse 9 on 2/21/2014, 3:41pm...

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 And Ronald Reagan an American President declared all flights above under and in the one third of the sea should stop and anything moving in the sea should be killed and no one should ever again fire on any supply ships coming or going in the gulf and fair trade be assigned for the trade of oil wine barley and wheat between nations in the middle east

 


Faithfull's comment about verse 1 on 2/21/2014, 3:19pm...

And when he had opened the seventh seal there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour The people of the earth declared peace for three mouths in order to deceive the people of the world that the false Messiah was the real deal by first entering into Jerusalem with flatteries then back to war and spreading of heresy to destroy the peoples of the earth

 


Faithfull's comment on 2/21/2014, 2:54pm...

third part of the sea was covered in oil blood

 


Faithfull's comment about verse 12 on 1/30/2014, 10:19am...

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.

This sign was not for the entire world to literally see with their own eyes. but rather only 1/3 of the world did see this unfold as the oil fields of Saddam burned the skies over 1/3 of the earth were blackened so much it was as described in Rev.8:12 the sun moon and stars could not shine their strength for reason of the burning of the oil.

 


Jeff's comment about verse 5 on 1/20/2014, 7:41am...

The seven angels are ready to pour out God's wrath; the seven last plagues. Look at Numbers 16:46-50 and you will see why the censer has been thrown to the earth. The censer is thrown to the earth to protect those who believe in Jesus and to prevent all of mankind from being killed from God's wrath.

 


J. W. Martin's comment about verse 13 on 8/29/2013, 1:34pm...

As a new (but aged) Bible student I have a problem differentiating some Scripture from fact/symbolism. i.e. Rev 8:13 angel or eagle?

 


Dody Bush's comment about verse 11 on 8/19/2013, 9:04pm...

I believe it is atomic because the symbol for atomic was an atom that looked like a star...also a third of our waters have been made bad through atomic energy, ***ishima. Many men will die from this accident.

 


DGHnry's comment about verse 1 on 7/15/2013, 4:13pm...

During Moses time, whenever the presence (Holy Spirit) of God was in the tabernacle no one was allowed inside so there was silence, no one was there. So I believe that the day of pentacostal God sent his holy spirit to the tabernacle, church, temple, his angels (servants). So at this it is quiet until all his saints has been return to him and his will has been done.

 


Fred's comment about verse 13 on 6/25/2013, 1:46pm...

An eagle "fies in mid-heaven
 Mid-heaven refers to outer space (between the atmosphere and
the throne room of God)
 Since we know that literal eagles cannot live in outer space, we
can view eagle to be a symbolic reference to an angel
Furthermore the “eagle” speaks in a loud voice to announce to the
whole world that the !nal three trumpets will be woe, woe, woe to the
earth
 These judgments will be directed at the people on earth instead
of the earth itself
 It will be a terrible period
 But all the while, evangelism is still winning millions to Christ,
helped no doubt by the dramatic events on earth
Revelation 7-8 17
