REVELATION 5-9, VBCBI
God the Father had a scroll with 7 seals and none could unseal it.
(a) Redeemed from all the earth, (b) 4 symbols of all Israel, (Numb 2) (3) 12 disciples and 12 tribes of Israel, (4) the Church
is in heaven before the Great Tribulation begins in chapter 4 (5:9-10).
5:8 prayers of the saints ; also Rev 8:3-4
4. 5:13-14 (1) He receives the same honor
as God the Father in 5:13. (2) Every creature honors and worships him.
1st SEAL: WHITE: Antichrist will come as a Messiah to conquer (or rescue) much (if not all) of earth.
6:3-4 2nd SEAL: RED: After brining peace, Anti-Christ will remove peace by causing nations to fight one another.
6:5-6 3rd SEAL: BLACK: the wealthy can still afford wine and oil
4th SEAL: PALE: Anti-Christ's control is affirmed after 1/4 humanity is killed by war, famine, disease and wild animals.
6:9-11 5th SEAL: MARTYRS: Jesus told them to rest a little season longer and more martyrs were yet to come.
6:12-17 6th SEAL: EARTHQUAKE: The O. T. great day of God's wrath has come (6:17). A type was at Calvary when God's
wrath fell on Christ (Joel 2:27-32). Therefore the Church will not experience the wrath of God (1 Thess 1:10; 5:9; Rev 3:10).
8:1 7th SEAL: The seven trumpets are contained within the 7th seal.
Apocalyptic literature uses much symbolism. Revelation was coded to evade being rejected by pagan Roman prison guards. Literal
interpretation should be followed unless it is evident that symbolisim is being used. Daniel is also apocalyptic.
7:2-8 Literal Israelites. Dan is missing; Ephraim and Manasseh are both Joseph.
The great multitude which could not be numbered are (probably) martyred Christians from 6:14b.
7:7-19 They have come out of great tribulation and are already before the throne.
Probably. It explains 7:14 and answers the request of 6:14. It also explains 9:20.
1st TRUMPET: 1/3 trees and all green grass on earth is burned by hail and fire.
2nd TRUMPET: 1/3 sea becomes blood; 1/3 life in seas die; 1/3 ships in sea are destroyed by great burning mountain.
8:10-11 3rd TRUMPET: 1/3 fresh water became bitter from Wormwood star; many died drinking the bitter water.
8:12 4th TRUMPET: 1/3 sun, moon, stars, daylight, moonlight will be darkened.
5th TRUMPET: 1st WOE
(1) Abaddon (Hebrew) or Apollyon (Greek) will release flying
creatures from the bottomless pit (9:1, 11).
(2) Unsealed men will be tortured 5 months
but not allowed to die (9:4-6).
22. 9:7-10 Anything is possible.
