The Bible's 7th Trumpet Time Frame Is The Thousand Years Of Rev. 20

 

Mindful of God's warning not to take 1000 years literally (II Pet. 3:8)--and these reasons for  that warning [1]-[2]-[3]-[4]--let's turn to Biblical facts about the 7th Trumpet Time Frame:

 

Unlike the previous Six Trumpet Plagues upon Satan's worshipers, the 7th Trumpet includes Seven separate plagues. Those plagues unleash God's full wrath upon the Beast and False Prophet, killing them and millions of their main followers at Armageddon on the very last day of the Beast's 3 ˝ year reign. [5] This is also the last day of the 7th Trumpet time frame.

 

As seen in Bible Doctrine #4, God's promise to avenge all martyrs (from Rev. 6:10, 11, thru the Mark of the Beast, Rev. 20:4) will have arrived at the end of the 6th Trumpet when God's Two Witnesses/Martyrs have been killed and have ascended to heaven. (Rev. 11:8-13)

 

Revelation Chap.15:  This whole chapter speaks of honoring hundreds of millions of resurrected martyrs in heaven (Rev. 20:5) when the 7th Trumpet "wrath of the Lord God Almighty" is ready to begin. These martyrs are rejoicing in anticipation of God's revenge.

 

Indeed, this scene in heaven with the resurrected martyrs includes the singular honor to "live and reign with Christ a thousand years." (Rev. 20:5,6) This occurs at the close of the 6th Trumpet time frame which completes the roster of Christian martyrs. (Rev 20:4)  

 

Revelation 16:4,6: "And the third [7th Trumpet] angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountain of waters, and they became blood….": "…For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou has given them blood to drink…."

Comment: We see this part of God's 7th Trumpet vengeance fulfilled when we read: "…the Lord our God…hath avenged the blood of His servants at her ["the great whore's"] hand." (Rev. 19:1, 2). Then the 4th and 5th plagues ("scorching heat and blindness": Rev. 16:8-11) bring on the 6th vial plague which miraculously (v.14) causes the Beast's chief hatchet men who martyred millions of Christians in the 6th Trumpet Mark of the Beast period to be "gathered" lemming-like to "the place called Armageddon…for "the battle of that great day of God Almighty." (vs. 14,16) The stage is set for Christ's one day wipeout from the sky [6] of the Beast and False prophet and c. 5-10 million of their worst henchmen gathered and corralled and killed at Armageddon with 100 pound hailstones. (Rev. 19:11-21: 16:21)

 

Revelation: 16:15:  Just before Jesus destroys the Beast & False Prophet and their army at Armageddon, HE gives a warning to His followers who have survived the Mark period: Note:  The Beast's 3 ˝ years are about to end and there has been no rapture!!.  HE warns His Saints to remain vigilant during the remaining time frame of this earth's history, i.e., "the little season". This period follows Satan's loosing from having been bound a thousand years, i.e., the 7thTrumpet period, when his power was gone and his human leaders killed and he alone survives until the "last trump" ( I Thess. 4:16; I Cor. 15:52)

 

THERE IS NO BIBLE SCRIPTURE DEPICTING CHRIST RULING 1000 YEARS ON THIS EARTH! NONE!  IF TRUE, THERE SHOULD BE A LOT OF IT, DON'T YOU THINK??!!

 

You who have read the Five Bulletins (May-September) know that both the "Secret Rapture" and Millennialist teachings are not Biblical. Is it time to tell others?
