Revelation 8:1 ¶  When the Lamb broke the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.

2  And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them.

3  Another angel came and stood at the altar, holding a golden censer; and much incense was given to him, so that he might add it to the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar which was before the throne.

4  And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the angel’s hand.

5  Then the angel took the censer and filled it with the fire of the altar, and threw it to the earth; and there followed peals of thunder and sounds and flashes of lightning and an earthquake.

6  And the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound them.

 

When the Lamb broke the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.  This discourse on the tribulation is now into the 7th seal!

 

COULD THIS BE THE RAPTURE?

 

Another angel came and stood at the altar, holding a golden censer; and much incense was given to him, so that he might add it to the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar which was before the throne.

WHO?

WHERE?

I repeat, for emphasis,

 

  • ALL THE SAINTS,

  • BEFORE THE THRONE
     

There is also a "Woe" to those still on earth, but it seems there are no mor  references to The Church, to disciples or Christ followers on earth after this event.

Now that Jesus has warned His followers of what to expect

He gives instructions on what we are to do:

Matthew 24:37  "For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah.

Those in that day had it wrong, all except Noah, and I wonder about us in the 21st Century prophecy experts?

 

37  "For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah.

38  "For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark,

39  and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be.

40  "Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one will be left.

41  "Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one will be left.

42  "Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming.

43  "But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into.

 

44  "For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.

45  "Who then is the faithful and sensible slave whom his master put in charge of his household to give them their food at the proper time?

46  "Blessed is that slave whom his master finds so doing when he comes.

 

1.  For this reason you also must be ready.

 

2.  The faithful and sensible slave whom his master put in charge of his household to give them their food at the proper time.

 

3.  Blessed in that slave whom his master finds so doing when He comes.

 

For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah

  • Noah believed God against all the odds.

  • Noah obeyed God, all the time, by faith.

 

  • Noah stood against the contemporary wisdom and the taunts of those around him.

 

  • Noah got ready.  Noah stayed ready.

 

  • Noah as the faithful and sensible slave whom his master put in charge of his household to give them their food at the proper time.

  • Noah is the Blessed Slave whom his Master found doing so when He came.

 

  • Noah and his household endured to the end and were saved! 

 

 

 

Are you ready to be a Noah?

Have you started building the Ark of your Salvation by believing God by faith, against all the odds.

 

Are you obeying God?  Doing what He has said to do to be ready?

Are you standing against contemporary wisdom and the taunts of those around you, both inside and outside the church?

Are you Ready for what is coming and may indeed already be here?

 

Are you Being the faithful and sensible salve whom your Master has put in charge of your household to give them their food at the proper time?

Be the Blessed slave whom your Master finds doing so when He comes.

 

 

Let's join together in HIS CAUSE

Your Friend and Brother
