"7 Trumpets, 3 Woes, and 7 Vials", Section 3 of The Book of Revelation series
What I want you all to see is that the whole of this great judgment period, covered by the Trumpets and Vials, is given in two pairs of alternate Visions of events "in Heaven" and "on Earth." First we have the 2nd Vision "in Heaven" (Revelation 8:1-6 ) consisting of the Opening of the Seventh Seal. Then we have the 2nd Vision "on Earth" (Revelation 8:7-11:14 ) which shows the effects of this opening, which the scripture goes on to tell us are the first Six Trumpets.
Next we have the 3rd Vision "in Heaven" (Revelation 11:15-19 ) consisting of the Sounding of the Seventh Trumpet. Then the 3rd Vision "on Earth" (Revelation 11:19 ) consisting of the effects of this sounding.
Now follow me on this...we are then, in Revelation 12 , taken back to a time prior to Revelation 4 . At this point the sequence of the Trumpet and Vial judgments is broken in order to insert this parenthetical break, and give us the additional information. The Trumpet and Vial judgments are continuous once they begin. It is only the description of them which is interrupted, in order to allow the necessary information to be given which shows the necessity for them. This digression begins at Revelation 12:1 and is carried on to Revelation 15:8 .
Then the description of the Vial Judgments is taken up and continued, giving the results "on Earth" of the sounding of the Seventh Trumpet. These Vial Judgments are then continuous from Revelation 16:1 through Revelation 18:24 , which ends their mission, accomplishes their object, and issues in the Revelation of Yeshua Ha'Maschiach, The LORD Jesus Christ, from Heaven in power and great Glory as we then see in Revelation 19 .
We pray that this coming series will edify and richly bless you, as you grow in the Grace and Knowledge of our LORD and Saviour Yâ-hwéh Yâhuwshúa`, The LORD Jesus Christ.
