Shepherds Bible Revelation Chapter 8

CHAPTER 8

# The eighth chapter foretells of the coming o f the false christ. 1. A nd when He had ope ned the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven abo ut the space of half an hour. #Note how it does not say in this verse that there would be silence in the earth, but in heaven for half an hour. Why will there be silence? Because the “souls under the altar” (or in heaven) (Revelation 6:9-10), are watching and observing for they know that God is about to cast Lucifer onto the earth, which begins his “little season”: the beginning of the end. 2. And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. # The Greek word for “and” used here is a “polysyndeton”. It means “a strong association with the living God.” It’s a very special word, and the Eng- lish word “and” simply doesn’t do it justice. Note that these are the seven trumpets. When the seventh trumpe t sounds, that is the last trump. I t is the end and judgment is upon us. (Revelation 11:15) 3. And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much in-cense, that he should o ffer it with the prayers of all saints upo n the golde n altar which was before the throne. #These are the prayers of all saints in Revelation 6:10 since the beginning of time: to be avenged by God on Luci- fer and his Kenite children. He is a jealous God and vengeance belongs to Him. This is where it begins. 4. And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the ange l’s hand. #The prayers of all the saints ascend- ing up before God at the same time no doubt touches His heart and brings about what follows. 5. And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. # This verse has a strong relationship to I Kings 19:11 regarding earthquakes. God let Elijah know that he had nothing to fear just as we today hare nothing to fear. God told Elijah that He had 70OO set aside who had not bent a knee to Baal and would do Gods work. Romans 11:4—5 proves that this is last day Prophecy. Perhaps even the reader is one of the 7O0O, the very elect. Symbolically the earth-quakes will also shake the governmental systems. 6. And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. 7. The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was bur nt up and all the green grass was burnt up.

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: 9. 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. 10. And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from hea- ven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of wa-ters; # In Revelation 17:15 we see that the “waters” are clearly defined as “peo-ple, multitudes and nations, and tongues”. Therefore, the great star fell upo n peop le, not water. What is the star? In Luke 10:18—20 Christ said “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven”. In Isaiah 14:12 it says, How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning? How art thou cut do wn to the ground ( earth), which didst weake n the nations (people)”. We see this verse come to pass in this chapter of Revelation. Lucifer is the Hebrew word #1966 (Heylel, bright star. Let there he no doubt, Lucifer will fall physically onto the earth as the false Christ. People who think he is Christ at his appearance will die a spiritual death by believing o n him. O nly the True Christ can give spiritual life. Pray that you are alert and one of the elect that will not bow a knee to satan or Lucifer. Romans 11. 11. And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of waters became wormwood: and many men died of the waters because they were made bitter. # Now that we know who the star is, we learn his name in this verse is given as “wormwood”. This is the Greek word #894 which means calamity or bitterness. The people “waters” become saturated in his bitterness (deception) and in turn deceive other men, because all that partake of him become bitter and die a spiritual death. To die a spiritual death means, of course, to lose eternal life. 12. And the fourth angel sounded and the third part of the sun was smitten, a nd the third pa rt 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. # Refer to the commentary on Revelation 6:12. 13. And I beheld and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhibitors of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels which are yet to sound! # Note these woes are to the inhibitors of the earth. The first four trumpets told of the false christ’s coming. The last three trumpets are woe trum-pets to the earth, not heaven, as Luci- fer will be on the earth during their soundings.
