7. Chapter Seven: The 144,000 Messianic Missionary Jews; multitude of converts
Text Rev. 7

This chapter deals with the sealing of the 144,000 Messianic Jews who share the Good News of Salvation in Yeshua-Jesus only.
They will witness during the Great Tribulation (last 3 1/2 years of this age ) and will arrive in heaven Rev. 14: 1.
Their witness brings into the kingdom of God "a multitude that no man can number". This takes place during the
last 3 and 1/2 years of this age, known as
the Great Tribulation. Anyone who repents of their sins will receive Salvation in the precious atoning Blood of Jesus Christ. The multitude that no man could number is explained in the above link.

Two tribes of Israel are not mentioned here: Ephraim and the tribe of Dan. In the Old Testament, these two tribes went into idolatry.
The tribe of Joseph has three members mentioned : Joseph,  Manasses, and Benjamin.

Messianic Jews in Israel ( praying for them )
"We note of late the terrible phenomenon of Messianic Jews wreaking havoc and destruction in Israel by trying to bring Jesus as Messiah into Israel,” Be’er Sheva’s Chief Rabbi Yehuda Deri once told Israel National News. “With pleasantness and kindness, they bring Torah, fear of G-d and even Torah commandments - but all with one underlying theme: that Jesus is Messiah. [Christian Zionists] want to help and support us, but they have the same goals as the Messianics… They have one goal, and that is Jesus.” --- Arutz Sheva

144,000 already on the rise
-- Kiryat Shmonah, Northern Israel
The memo goes on to boast that the missionaries [ Jews for Jesus ] "handed out 21,700 gospel tracts" and "have contact information of 995 Jewish people who told us that they want to know more about Jesus." Moreover, the group proudly proclaimed that it succeeded in "leading 18 Jewish people and 3 Gentiles to Y'Shua" – the organization's Hebraicized name for Jesus, with its double play on the Hebrew word for "salvation

Rabbi Singer says that close to 20,000 Jews have ... convert(ed) to Christianity since 1970
[ Jews for Jesus ] has approximately two thousand ( 2,000 ) volunteers in Israel
And more are on the way. "Thousands are coming in the next couple of weeks for Sukkot," Singer says, "for a big Christian evangelical parade. Each one is willing to volunteer in the effort to lead a Jew ( Ed: to Yeshua H'Maschiach ) away from his faith

8. Chapter Eight: Limited Nuclear War; One-Third of earth diminished

Text Rev. 8

 "And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour" Rev. 8: 1
30 minutes  in-space bomber
" The United States is exploring the development of a 'space-bomber' which could destroy targets on the other side of the world within 30 minutes
Plans for the weapon appear to undermine claims that President George Bush's controversial Missile Defence Screen - dubbed 'Son of Star Wars' - is purely defensive.
The new plane could be developed quickly by adapting shelved research for Ronald Reagan's 'Star Wars' together with plans for a reusable spacecraft called the
X-33 Venture Star, under development by NASA and Lockheed Martin. http://www.observer.co.uk/international/story/0,6903,529208,00.html

Iran breaks seals on nuclear reactors --Telegraph uk quotes the Bible
( Ed : Our God is so sovereign that He makes even the secular press to quote His word. Praise God ! )
"Iran has "broken the seals". The phrase refers to the seals placed by UN nuclear inspectors on equipment that, unsealed, enables uranium enrichment, making possible the development of a nuclear bomb.
"It has a suitably apocalyptic ring. In the Book of Revelation, the Lamb breaks the seven seals and earth-shattering violence ensues: "…the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together… And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men… hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains".

"That's what Ahmadinejad means, too. Last September, he addressed the United Nations in a speech that called on God to hurry up and send along his "Promised One". This was a reference to the strong Shi'ite belief in a Mahdi, or Hidden Messenger, who will reappear in the world to rule it aright

"mountain" signifies "government"; in this particular passage it refers to a government's Navy.
"fell a great star from heaven" = possibly a missile
verse 11 : "wormwood" = "bitter", meaning the water tables etc. became deadly, due to radiation fallout, or germ warfare.
"Chernobyl " means "wormwood

9. Chapter Nine: Terrorism ( including Germ warfare )
Text Rev. 9

Locusts and MAV's..... Rev 9:9 --  Micro Air Vehicles
Ron Fearing has the future of warfare at the tip of his finger," writes Wilson. "It isn't pressing on the trigger of a laser death ray or button of a doomsday device. It's holding a stubby-winged mechanical bug."
 "Flies are one of the most stable and maneuverable of all flying animals," he goes on to quote Fearing as saying. "They are the jet fighters of the animal world."
 Evidently the Pentagon agrees and is working with engineers and biologists to create a lethal arsenal of micro-mechanical fighting bugs that combine insect aerodynamics with GPS navigation and molecular electronics

Verse 9:3 "locusts" .......
Insect cyborgs : programmable insects

The Pentagon is seeking applications from researchers to help them develop technology that can be implanted into living insects to control their movement and transmit video or other sensory data back to their handlers.
In an announcement posted on government Web sites last week, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, says it is seeking "innovative proposals to develop technology to create insect cyborgs," by implanting tiny devices into insect bodies while the animals are in their pupal stage.

As an insect metamorphoses from a larva to an adult, the solicitation notice says, its "body goes through a renewal process that can heal wounds and reposition internal organs around foreign objects, including tiny (mechanical) structures that might be present."
The goal is to create technology that can achieve "the delivery of an insect within five meters of a specific target located at hundred meters away, using electronic remote control, and/or global positioning system." Once at the target, "the insect must remain stationary either indefinitely or until otherwise instructed ... (and) must also be able to transmit data from (Department of Defense) relevant sensors ... includ(ing) gas sensors, microphones, video, etc." http://www.upi.com/SecurityTerrorism/view.php?StoryID=20060312-073227-3194r

The devices DARPA wants to implant are micro-electro-mechanical systems, or MEMS. MEMS technology uses tiny silicon wafers like those used as the basis for computer microchips. But instead of merely laying circuits on them, MEMS technology can actually cut and shape the silicon, turning the chip into a microscopic mechanical device.
Although flying insects like dragonflies and moths are "of great interest," the document says, "Hopping [Ed: Locusts ? ]
and swimming insects could also meet final demonstration goals."

 "LOCUSTS :autonomous surveillance and emergency response systems

Could "locusts" actually be  MAV 's ( Micro Air Vehicles ) equipped with weaponry ?
Here is an interesting article by Thomas Horn
we believe that only those who have not the "seal of God" ( an invisible spiritual marking) will be attacked.
The Mark of the Beast is not on the scene as of yet until 4 more chapters later.
This spiritual marking is exemplified in
Ezekiel Chapter 9.

"sorceries" comes from the Greek word "pharmekia" where we get our word "pharmacy"; and in this context it refers to fact that many people are on drugs. Just like "soma, soma, soma" of Brave New World. This New World is so unpalatable and hellish, that people will try to get stoned and be oblivious to their surroundings in order to deaden the pain of the New World Order.

Zetas: Operating in Texas, Oklahoma, California,Tennesse, Georgia, Florida
WASHINGTON – The ultra-violent, U.S.-trained elite, Mexican paramilitary commandos known as the "Zetas," responsible for hundreds of murders along the border this year, have expanded their enforcement efforts on behalf of a drug cartel by setting up trafficking routes in six U.S. states.
A U.S. Justice Department memo says the U.S.-trained units have recently moved operations into Houston, San Antonio and the states of California, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Georgia and Florida. They have been operating in Dallas for at least two years, according to the feds.
According to FBI officials, the Zetas are attempting to consolidate their grip on the smuggling route along I-35. Anyone caught not paying the 10 percent commission they charge on all cargo – drugs or humans – is killed, according to U.S. and Mexican law enforcement sources.
The feds say the group has begun establishing its own trafficking routes into the United States and will protect them at any cost.

10. Chapter Ten: Seven Wars (thunders); John commissioned for future role in the Great Tribulation
Text Rev. 10

"mighty angel" = Jesus Christ
"time no longer" = soon the Great Tribulation will begin ( last 3 1/2 years of this age)

Revelation 10 : 3
7 Thunders = 7 major wars throughout the Great Tribulation

"mystery of God" ... the Church, the Bride of Christ
" In the
dayS [ more than one day ] of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound"........
meaning :
soon the Church will go in the First Rapture.

There is a
second Rapture found in Rev. 16:15. (
Cockcrowing- Harvest Rapture)
also known as"
the Pre-Wrath Rapture " ... It occurs before God the Father pours out His 7 vials of wrath upon a world which does not believe in His Son.
See also https://hopetotheend.com/trumpet.html   and   Rapture Index https://hopetotheend.com/rap.html

The reason why the text says "day
S" instead of "day" is because the soon-coming Rapture event takes place over a two-day period, we feel. ( 48 hours )
The Hebrew uses the phrase
"yoma arichta" which means one long day
( longer than 24 hours but not longer than 48 hours)

That is perhaps the reason why the phrase "when he shall begin to sound" ( Chapter 10) is separated from the phrase "and the seventh angel sounded" ( Chapter 11). This one event (two-phrases) is specifically written into
two different chapters to highlight the fact that there are two days involved here ....two solar days, yet one long Biblical day.

"little book" = Book of Revelation

Rev. 10:10 "sweet in thy mouth " ... The word that God gives to John the Revelator is a mission sweet to the soul;
John the Revelator will play a significant witness to the world in the Last days. The message itself is sweet because the Book of Revelation tells of the Lord's return to set up His kingdom. It is sweet because "all Israel shall be saved". That is a very sweet message.

"but bitter in thy belly"...
Yet the message contained in the Book of Revelation is also "bitter" for it tells of judgements to befall a Jesus-rejecting world.
At the end of John's 3 and a half years of witnessing, the world at large will reject Jesus Christ, His coming kingdom, and His two witnesses. The antichrist will have John the Revelator and Elijah killed [ who we believe are the two witnesses ] . Severe judgements will fall.

But for John and Elijah, personally, they will rejoice to share in the cup of the Lord's suffering (
Philippians 3:10) . For them, the message of God is, was, and always shall be sweet ...... personally.

10: "thou must prophesy again" = John is commissioned here to preach concerning Jesus Christ
during the Great Tribulation

11. Chapter Eleven : The RAPTURE of the Church ;
and the scenario of the two witnesses of the Great Tribulation

Verse 15: "
And the seventh angel sounded " :

"For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, and with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds,
to meet the Lord in the air: and so we shall ever be with the Lord." .....
First Thessalonians 4:16,17

Hear the trumpet blast: hopetotheend.com/trumpetblast.wav

"Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep,
"but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkiling of an eye, at the last trump:
for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed
1 Corinthians 15: 51, 52

This sounding of the trumpet is the Rapture of the Bride of Christ .... Matthew 25:1-10

We know that this is the Rapture of the church based upon
1 Corinthians 15:51, 52 which tells us that we shall be raised at the LAST trump. The Seventh trumpet sounded here in Rev. 11:15 is the last trumpet in a series of seven trumpets.
Note that in 1 Corinthians 15:52 it says,"and the dead shall be raised". That coincides perfectly with Rev. 11:18..
"And the time of the dead
["is come", previous verse] , that they should be judged, and that Thou shouldest give reward unto Thy servants and the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear Thy Name."

Please see Rapture Index  https://hopetotheend.com/rap.html


The TWO Witnesses:

We see from the different scenarios presented in the Book of Revelation that this Book is not written in a strict chronological order. It
IS in a cyclical order with vignettes and scenarios presented for us, in an order which may overlap or coincide.

While telling of one scenario all the way through to its conclusion, the passage then may back-track to pick up where it left off from the previous chapter.
That is why the Two Witnesses who are here in the Great Tribulation are presented all the way to their end.

And then the Chapter back-tracks to Rev. 10 :7  and picks up again in Rev. 11:15 .... the Rapture scenario, which not only is joyous in exaltation, but ominous in the presenting of God the Father's coming judgements.
The reason why the Midnight Rapture is inserted in this Chapter about the Two Witnesses is because our homegoing is near the time of their beginning their mission here on earth, so we believe.
From this point on, God begins the severe judgements that culminate in His victory over the antichristian forces.

For a summary of the two witnesses and their activities, please see:
The two witnesses , as we see it, are John the Revelator (Rev. 10:11) and Elijah, (Malachi 4:5 ) . They both will have miraculous powers.

Jerusalem ....

A major earthquake is mentioned in Revelation Chapter 11. Here is some news articles on Israeli earthquakes.
5.0 quake cracks Knesset building -- Feb. 11, 2004

Quakes in Israel - Diane Talsma

" The director of the Geological Institute, Dr. Amos Bein, believes that the greatest likelihood for a major quake in Israel is along the fault that starts at Emek Hula. The Geological Institute is able to predict the magnitude and frequency of these quakes, but not the exact time they will happen. According to the analyses of the data, a quake measuring at least
on the Richter Scale (stronger even that the Bam earthquake), can be expected in the region once every 100 or 150 years.

Dr. Bein stresses, however, that the magnitude of the quake is just one element in gauging risk. Another important element is how the country's infrastructure will hold out during the earthquake. The composition of the infrastructure could lead to a situation in which one area would see total devastation, where another would be relatively untouched.

Walled Old City of Jerusalem vulnerable to quakes -- Jan. 2004 ... Good map
"Now, a geological survey says the heart of biblical narrative, Jerusalem's walled Old City, would be among the worst hit parts of the city in the event of another earthquake because it rests on layers of debris, not solid rock

Most at risk, the report says, is the Old City and
the 11-acre elevated plaza housing two major mosques, including the gold-capped Dome of the Rock.
The site is known to Muslims as the
Al Aqsa Mosque compound and to Jews as the Temple Mount — once home to the biblical Temples. Jews pray at one of the compound's outer walls, a remnant of the Temple complex — the Western Wall

Quakes : Old City of Jerusalem
Now, a geological survey says the heart of biblical narrative - Jerusalem's walled Old City - would be among the worst hit parts of the city in the event of another earthquake because it rests on layers of debris, not solid rock.

The three-year study, conducted by the Geological Survey of Israel and released this week, found that the Old City is more at risk than modern neighborhoods because of its ancient construction and the underground layers of shifting debris left behind by ransacking armies, said Amos Bein, the center's director.

Most at risk, the report says, is the Old City and the 11-acre elevated plaza housing two major mosques, including the gold-capped Dome of the Rock.
The site is known to Muslims as the Al Aqsa Mosque compound and to Jews as the Temple Mount - once home to the biblical Temples. Jews pray at one of the compound's outer walls, a remnant of the Temple complex - the Western Wall.

Ed. note: Fault lines form a CROSS ( + )
The Great Rift Valley [ fault line] runs for 3,000 miles between Syria and Mozambique and passes through the Dead Sea, below Jerusalem's eastern hills. The fault line was caused by the separation of African and Eurasian tectonic plates 35 million years ago, a split that weakened the Earth's crust.

About 35 miles to the north, another fault line cuts the land east to west from the Mediterranean port of Haifa with the West Bank towns of Jenin and Nablus before reaching the Jordan River.

"This is a very active area which may produce a large earthquake once in a while," [ Dr. Amos ] Bein said.

Text Rev. 12

"the woman" =
nation of Israel
"great red dragon" = Satan

"7 heads" = 7 major Industrialized Democracies of banking wealth that meet each year at the Economic Summit, the G-7.
They are America, Canada, Germany, France, England, Japan, and Italy.

10 horns =
10 nations of the Western European Union ( WEU "Core Group" ) (see also hopetotheend.com/egov.html )
They are: England, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Luxembourg, Greece, Netherlands, Spain and Portugal.
While it is reported that the WEU disbanded in 2011, this website believes it will return in the Last Days, as the "Core Group".

7 crowns = upon Satan's head, meaning he has the power and the control over the
money of the world ( digital currencies) . Satan is the head over all banking, finance, currencies and commercialism ( trade ) . He is to be the head of the cashless society of cyber money. All financial transactions will be digitized (non-material ) in cyberspace. Material forms of money ( paper, coins , gold and silver ) will have no value any more. Please see Ezekiel 7:19 .

"woman fled into the wilderness" = the Jewish Remnant will go into hiding during the Great Tribulation ( just as they went into hiding during
WW 2 )
Zechariah 13: 8, 9 tells us that 1/3 of the Jewish people are spared, thus being the Remnant.

"Remnant" = Messianic Jews who believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. They believe in the Trinity: The Father, Yeshua His Son and the Holy Spirit.
