NMD 07 Rev 7 Mean Time 1
In the last study of chapter 6, NMD 06 First six Seals, we have seen the opening of the first six Seals and the consequences. In study NMD 07 Rev 7 Mean Time 1 we will study Revelation 7 where we will see what happens in the Mean time 1 for the people Sealed and the Great Multitude.
We will see that the seal judgments are interrupted. So it is not a continuation of the sixth seal and not the beginning of the 7th judgement. In this chapter, an explanation or further details are given of things in heaven and on earth. A so called framework or settings. In our time we also find such a framework or setting reflected in our modern magazines often placed in the middle of or at the side of an article with comments or details. In order not to disturb the judgement series of Revelation this framework is called “In the mean time” At this part of the study we will study the NMD 07 Rev 7 Mean Time 1.
In NMD 07 Rev 7 Mean Time 1 Angels play an active roll
Four angels are ordered to hold back the four winds of the earth. We see here for the first time, that angels play an active role in the events of the end time. Maybe these four angels are the first angels blowing the trumpets that we will soon see in Revelation 8. Angels play a much larger role than most people realise. We need to be aware that there are in the invisible world around us a large multitude of serving creatures, who are silent and can move with the speed of light.
We don’t know what the purpose is of holding back the four winds on earth. Will there be a period of complete calm? Maybe it is good just to realise what that means. Nowadays in some parts of the world sometimes there is hardly any wind and immediately there is smog, dust, stench etc. Or is it a silence after the storm that revelation 6 has stirred up? Maybe a time to slow down, to have a moment to think about what has happened and to consider the consequences. Or is it a calm before the storm, because later, in Revelation 8, comes another intensive series of judgements.
