What are the Seven Trumpets of Revelation 9?

FRIDAY MORNING MANNA

What are the Seven Trumpets of Revelation 9?

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:

We elect a government; the president presides over that government.”

Ken Starr, former Independent Counsel

The adage, ‘Prophecy is history written in advance; history is prophecy fulfilled,’ is helpful in interpreting and understanding the seven trumpets of Revelation.  A quick review of well-documented world history, specifically of and during the reign of the Roman Empire composed of its eastern and western divisions clearly reveal the history that fulfills this amazing prophecy.    Read more

The tenth day of the seventh month: Sept. 23 or Oct. 22?

FRIDAY MORNING MANNA

The tenth day of the seventh month: Sept. 23 or Oct. 22?

QUOTE FOR THE WEEK

“Conditional prophecy is when the fulfillment is dependent on the compliance of those to whom the promise is made, with the conditions on which it is given.”

– Sylvester Bliss, “Commentary on the Apocalypse,” pp. 7.

WHEN is the Day of Atonement, commonly known as Yom Kippur?  It depends on what calendar one is following: the Rabbbinical Calendar which is based on the Oral Tradition or the Karaite Calendar which is based on the written text.

It is vital to remember that Jesus himself and all His disciples and apostles presented and defended the truth of the gospel based on “it is written,” not “spoken,” though they came by way of spoken voice of the invisible God or by the inspiration of the invisible Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Godhead.   Read more

Biblical Numerology: NUMBER TWO – Part XII

MOSES AND ELIJAH TESTIFY TO CHRIST’S TRANSFIGURATION

 

Like that of the two different exact mountain sites, where Aaron, Israel’s first high priest, then later, Moses, Israel’s greatest leader, died and were buried—the precise geographical location of where Christ was transfigured is likewise described by Wikipedia as “one of the unknowns of the New Testament.” Their editors were right.

Transfigured in the K.J.V. (Matt. 17: 2; Mark 9:2) is from the Greek metamorphoo, “to transform (lit. or fig.), metamorphose, change.” Metamorphose is from the Greek meta, “beyond, over” plus morphe,“form.” Here’s why these will remain unrevealed to fallen man: the first two were in order to prevent ancient Israel from yielding to the temptation to render idolatrous worship—not only over the dead bodies but also of converting their burial sites into holy shrines. Second, the silence of the Bible on the actual location of the transfiguration speaks for itself. It is the significance of the event regarding vital truths–not the location—necessitating the glorious appearance of two heavenly human agencies already in heaven—Moses and Elijah. Read more

MORE ON MOSES AND AARON

 A correction needs to be made as we move on, and with it, gain more valuable insights into the joint work, peerless and profound experiences of Moses and Aaron in jointly leading ancient Israel to earthly Canaan. From these, both those in leadership positions and congregants of spiritual Israel today may derive instruction and inspiration. In our October 10, 2014 issue on Number Two–Part V, titled “Moses and Aaron,” my last sentence of the first paragraph stated: “At the end of their earthly sojourn, Aaron died first, cradled in the arms of Moses on Mount Hor where Moses buried him, alone.”

 That was inaccurate. On this singular sad occasion, Moses was not alone. Eleazar, Aaron’s third son (Exo. 6: 23) was with them. He served as priest with his father and brothers during the wilderness wanderings (Exo. 28: 1, 44; Num. 3: 4; 16: 39; 19: 3). He outlived his elder brothers, Nadab and Abihu, whom God destroyed with divine fire for offering “strange fire before the Lord” (Lev. 10: 1-7). Eleazar, whose name means “God has helped,” was divinely-appointed to succeed Aaron. From father to son, man to man.

 MOSES AND AARON VERSUS EGYPT

 Teamwork, works. Two brothers, Moses, three years younger than Aaron, sons of Amram and Jochebed, devout Levites, were raised and empowered by God to do a special work and mission for His people with clearly defined separate areas of responsibilities. The first earthly sanctuary with its accompanying detailed, yet simple services teaching the plan of redemption, patterned after the great original in heaven, was built by Moses.

God fitted Moses for the greatest work in his time. It was Christ who appeared to him in a burning bush. At the end of their earthly sojourn, Aaron died first, cradled in the arms of Moses on Mount Hor where Moses buried him, alone. Read more
