God has clearly told us He will avenge His own elect. What I see to be taking place in Revelation 8 and 10 is God avenging the blood of His own with the sounding of the 7 trumpets.
God Will Avenge His Elect Luke 18:7-8 7 And shall God not AVENGE His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? 8 I tell you that He will AVENGE them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”
Revelation 6:9-11 Fifth Seal: The Cry of the Martyrs - 9 When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. 10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You JUDGE and AVENGE our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” 11 Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed.
I was reminded of the sounding of the 7 trumpets as I wrote the blog: Giant Asteroid Killed Off The Dinosaurs? - NO This is Not Truth. No a giant asteroid did not collide with Earth and kill off the dinosaurs. Dinosaurs drowned, as did all land animals, in the worldwide (global) flood that took place during the time of Noah when God judged and delivered His wrath destroying the wicked and wickedness that enslaved the entire world.
A Giant Asteroid
But, a gant asteroid may be what is being described in Revelation 8: 8-9 or 10-11 as God prepares to avenge His own and to deliver His wrath destroying the wickedness that is enslaving the world.
First Trumpet: 7 The first angel sounded: And hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.
Second Trumpet: 8 Then the second angel sounded: And something like a GREAT MOUNTAIN burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. 9 And a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.
Third Trumpet: 10 Then the third angel sounded: And a GREAT STAR fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter.
Prayers of the Saints Answered
In Revelation 8: 2-6 we see much incense and the prayers of the saints being offered at the altar before the throne of God and the angels preparing to sound the 7 trumpets begins. The sounding of the 7 trumpets is the time God avenges the blood of His own saints.
Revelation 8:2 And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets. 3 Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. 4 And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel’s hand. 5 Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it to the earth. And there were noises, thunderings, lightnings, and an earthquake.
6 So the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
I would like to encourage you to read the rest of Revelation 8 and to read Revelation 10 to find out what happens when three more trumpets are sounded.
I experienced the following dream early Thursday morning, March 18, 2004.
In the dream, I am peering out a lower level window into the night sky when I see formations of orange-colored round-shaped designs appearing in various places in the sky. As I am attempting to determine what I am watching, a formation appears closer and one of its parts separates from the formation allowing me to see that it is an angel and that the formations appearing are made up of angels.
Then, a large gray rectangular shaped cloud appears in the sky in full view directly in front of me. It seems as if smoke is coming out from the right hand side of the cloud. Then, a huge hand comes out from behind the cloud. I knew instantly it was the Hand of God.
When I first started looking out the window, I was the only one doing so, as the dream progresses, a few others start to also peer out the window.
