Revelation 8

Revelation 8

When he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.   I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them.    Another angel came and stood over the altar, having a golden censer. Much incense was given to him, that he should add it to the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar which was before the throne.  The smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the angel’s hand.  The angel took the censer, and he filled it with the fire of the altar, and threw it on the earth. Thunders, sounds, lightnings, and an earthquake followed.  And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. 

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 burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

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;  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 the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;  And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. 

REPENT

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 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!

REPENT

For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness. I will remember their sins and lawless deeds no more.”  Hebrews 8:12

Since then the children have shared in flesh and blood, he also himself in the same way partook of the same, that through death he might bring to nothing him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and might deliver all of them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.  Hebrews 2:14,15

When we had all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice saying to me in the Hebrew language, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’   “I said, ‘Who are you, Lord?’ “He said, ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.  But arise, and stand on your feet, for I have appeared to you for this purpose: to appoint you a servant and a witness both of the things which you have seen, and of the things which I will reveal to you; delivering you from the people, and from the Gentiles, to whom I send you, to open their eyes, that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive remission of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’ Acts 26:14-18

In righteousness he judges and makes war.  Revelation 19:11

  • Sing to Yahweh a new song! Sing to Yahweh, all the earth.  Sing to Yahweh! Bless his name! Proclaim his salvation from day to day!  Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples.  For great is Yahweh, and greatly to be praised! He is to be feared above all gods.  For all the gods of the peoples are idols, but Yahweh made the heavens.  Honor and majesty are before him. Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.  Ascribe to Yahweh, you families of nations, ascribe to Yahweh glory and strength.  Ascribe to Yahweh the glory due to his name. Bring an offering, and come into his courts.  Worship Yahweh in holy array. Tremble before him, all the earth.  Say among the nations, “Yahweh reigns.” The world is also established. It can’t be moved. He will judge the peoples with equity.   Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice. Let the sea roar, and its fullness!  Let the field and all that is in it exult! Then all the trees of the woods shall sing for joy before Yahweh; for he comes, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness, the peoples with His truth.  Psalm 96

    May God be merciful to us, bless us, and cause his face to shine on us. Selah.  That your way may be known on earth, and your salvation among all nations, let the peoples praise you, God. Let all the peoples praise you.  Oh let the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you will judge the peoples with equity, and govern the nations on earth. Selah.  Let the peoples praise you, God. Let all the peoples praise you.  The earth has yielded its increase. God, even our own God, will bless us.  God will bless us. All the ends of the earth shall fear him.  Psalm 67

When he opened the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been killed for the Word of God, and for the testimony of the Lamb which they had.  They cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, Master, the holy and true, until you judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?”   Revelation 6:9,10

Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name’s sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.  A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the LORD that rendereth recompence to his enemies.  Isaiah 66:6
