People's Bible Notes for Revelation 8:6


Re 8:6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets. See Re 8:2. There is the utmost deliberation. All must be made ready. The four angels hold back the winds (Re 7:1), then there was the silence of half an hour (Re 8:1); now the seven angels prepared themselves to sound. This implies that all things were being made ready for the great events to follow. Trumpets. The trumpet is used to give a signal. Usually it implied the march or charge of armies. See Joe 2:1,15; Jer 4:5 Eze 33:1-6. Sometimes it calls the people to worship. See Nu 31:6 1Ch 15:24. The reader will see that the first is likely to be the significance here.

    Genesis 12:3; The covenant of God with Abraham is ours too when we walk in the same steps of our father Abraham. It is absolutely on account of us, and how the world and individuals think and believe and act toward us, that God either blesses them, or detests them. It is on account of our friendship and obedience and prayers, that the angels are sent forth to punish the world for their wickedness.

    You claim that Rome became a Christian Empire, but Rome was never Christian, it was pagan before Constantine, during Constantine's time and is still pagan to this day. Nowhere in scripture is there any indication Rome became Christian. Please show me in scripture where Rome became a Christian Empire.

    The biggest sign you'll see coming is when they make the WORD of God of no effect. They've already made His laws of none. Everyone is reaching across the gap to join hands with Rome in the ecumenical movement and they have no idea of the consequences and won't until they have to obey man's doctrines over God's . There's another movement here also that labels Bible believers as "haters". That's bad

    Luke 11:29 Christ said no sign given to that particular evil generation. Reason being they wanted proof of the Messiah. What more proof is there than Christ Himself performing miracles and teaching? Their minds made up not to believe. If Christ couldn't convince them, a sign certainly wouldn't, as proven by the sign of Jonah. Israel on the map again is huge sign. Christ said, "watch!" Mark 13.

    Signs:And there shall be signs in the sun, moon,and stars; and upon the earth distress of nations,with perplexity;the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth:for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.Luke21:25-26.Strange looking clouds not so much. We are in the Tribulation:Wrath is coming: end:Revelations 20:15
