Discussion for Revelation 10:3

  • This loud cry is the same as the Midnight cry of the parable of the ten virgins. When this cry sounds, only then will the rapture of the church become imminent, and not before. This will occur on a day of Pentecost, fulfilling the outpouring of the Spirit as found in Joel 2. The seven thunders are each poured out on the seven churches. When it says "the Mystery of God shall be finished in the days of the 7th angel " is the rapture of the church...the last trumpet is when the rapture is to take place. Eph 3 is proof that the mystery is the church. phil
