EAT THE BOOK (11 of 32)
It is always helpful for us to keep in mind the flow
of the narrative of the book of The Revelation. In the
6th chapter we have the beginning of that period of
time on the earth known as the Great Tribulation. The
Bible teaches that the next event in Bible prophecy
will be the rapture of the church. God's born again
people will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air,
but there will begin on this earth a period of time
known as Great Tribulation.
The Great Tribulation is given to us in Revelation,

expect to find again the sound of the 7th trumpet. But
we do no hear that trumpet sound until all the way
over into the 11th chapter.
Look at the 11th chapter, 15th verse. There it says,
"And the seventh angel sounded." So, what we have now
is another one of these interludes in the book of The
Revelation. We have a parenthesis between the sounding
of the 6th trumpet and the sounding of the 7th trumpet.

move along. Sometimes we have ...
