The Seventh Seal
1#Rev 6:1; 5:1When He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.
2#Rev 11:15; Lk 1:19And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them.
3#Rev 9:13; 5:8; Heb 9:4Another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense to offer with the prayers of allthe saints on the golden altar which was before the throne. 4#Ps 141:2The smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel’s hand. 5#Rev 4:5; 11:19Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it onto the earth. And there were noises, thundering, lightning, and an earthquake.
The Trumpets
6#Rev 8:2Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound them.
7#Rev 9:4; Eze 38:22; Rev 9:15The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mixed with blood, and they were thrown upon the earth. A third of the trees and all the green grass were burned up.
8#Jer 51:25; Ex 7:17–21Then the second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain, burning with fire, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea became blood, 9#Isa 2:16; Rev 8:7a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.
10#Isa 14:12; Rev 9:1The third angel sounded, and a great star from heaven, burning like a torch, fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of waters. 11#Jer 9:15; 23:15The name of this star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter.
12#Isa 13:10; Joel 2:10; 2:31The fourth angel sounded, and a third of the sun was struck, and a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. A third of the day had no light, and likewise a third of the night.
13#Rev 11:14; 9:12; 14:6Then I watched, and I heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the other trumpet blasts of the three angels, who are yet to sound!”
