Second Trumpet – Second Vial
Second Trumpet Chapter 8:8-9
Red Dragon Chapter 12:3
One head wounded Chapter 13:3
Second Vial Chapter 6:3
Rev. 8:8 “And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;”
Rev. 8:9 “And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died: and the third part of the ships were destroyed.”
Rev. 16:3 “And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.”
Now that we are in the second year you will need to keep looking at your Chart. Remember Christ has already opened the Seals, so each year from now on will start with the Trumpets, and under each Trumpet I will bring in all the Scriptures to make the story complete, the same as we did in the first year. Notice how the second Trumpet connects itself to the second Vial. The great mountain burning I believe could be the United States, but it could also be referring to Israel, because both will be attacked. Losing one-third of ships will definitely cripple either one of us. When we are hit it will be on both sides of the earth by missiles, east coast and west coast. The third part of creatures that will die in the sea is referring to people, because creatures that are in the sea do not have a soul.
Jer. 6:22 “…Behold, a people cometh from the north country, and a great nation (United States) shall be raised (attacked) from the sides of the earth (west and east coast).
Jer. 6:23 “They shall lay hold on bow and spear (missiles); they are cruel, and have no mercy; their voice roareth like the sea; and they ride upon horses, set in array as men for war against thee, O daughter of Zion.” (United States)
Jer. 6:26 “O daughter of my people, (United States) gird thee with sackcloth, and wallow thyself in ashes: make thee mourning, as for an only son, most bitter lamentation: for the spoiler shall suddenly come upon us.”
When the United States is attacked, it will come without warning. After the attack, the damage and loss of life will be so great the US will be crippled to the point it will not be able to help Israel when she will need it the most. They will be cruel and will show no mercy when they come arrayed in battle, one strike after another. One- third of our ships will be destroyed. When you look at what is going on in the first year under the first Trumpet , the attack could start in the first year.
Notice how Scriptures in each of the first four Trumpets have a repeat of disasters that are divided into thirds? The Word is trying to show that the life of all mankind will be divided into thirds. Two-thirds by famine, pestilence, and war during these seven years. The first one-third will die in the first 3 ½ years and the second one-third will die in the last half. The remaining one-third who makes it through will go on into the Millennium. The reason I am showing this picture to you now, is for you to get a better overall view of what God is saying when he divides the life of man into thirds; it will affect people mostly in the Middle East: one-fourth part of the earth.
Rev. 6:8 “…And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger…”
Zech. 13:8 “And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.”
Zech. 13:9 “And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God.”
Now let’s go to Ezekiel to show another way how God divides the life of man, but in a very strange way. God told Ezekiel that he was to take a sharp knife, cut his hair and beard, and divide it into thirds.
Ezek. 5:1 “And thou, son of man, take thee a sharp knife, take thee a barber’s razor, and cause it to pass upon thine head and upon thine beard: then take thee balances to weight and divide the hair.”
Ezek. 5:2 “Thou shalt burn with fire a third part in the midst of the city, when the days of the siege are fulfilled: and thou shall take a third part, and smite about it with a knife: and a third part thou shall scatter in the wind; and I will draw out a sword after them.”
Ezek. 5:12 “A third part of thee shall die with the pestilence, and with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of thee: and a third part shall fall by the sword round about thee; and I will scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them.”
I believe these words were not to confuse us, but to force us to search the whole Bible, from Genesis to Revelation for clues. This story could not have been written as a mystery without the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Only with the help of the Holy Spirit can we receive knowledge of Him, and what is knowledge if we don’t use wisdom, and what is wisdom if it is not given.
Rev. 19:21 “And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth…”
Read all of Ezekiel, because stories in that Book are a foreshadow of today and mostly the seven years that are coming up before us. Revelation is the only sealed Book in the Bible, not the Book of Daniel. Daniel spoke of these seven years in visions and interpretations, and Ezekiel spoke of them when God told him to, meaning when God wanted us to have the understanding.
Now that we have a good foundation of the meaning of the symbols and the dividing of the life of man in these seven years, there is no doubt there is an order of how to read the Book of Revelation because all Scriptures throughout the Bible have substance and meaning. Without them, the story cannot be complete. God wants us to know Him so we will understand why He has to do what He has done and what is yet to be done; to redeem mankind and the earth back as it was before, before we destroy it and ourselves completely.
During this period of time with so much destruction in Israel, it will bring a lot of stress upon her. Scriptures show her pain will be as a woman in childbirth waiting to be delivered. She does not know she will be born again, or that it will take place in the middle of these seven years. “Pray for Israel”.
We now need to pick up the third verse in Chapter 12 that falls also in this second year… Look at your Chart. As you can see, there are no Scriptures in the third row; this is why we need to go to the next chapter for this year.
Red Dragon Chapter 12:3
Rev. 12:3 “And there appeared another wonder in heaven, and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his head.
Notice how this Chapter 12:3 speaks of the Dragon the same as in the second Seal. The word “heaven” is referring to the air we breath; the first heaven. The dragon is Satan, but remember he is now in this man. Everyone will worship this man for the flatteries of lies he will bring forth; not knowing it will be Satan. At this period of time the Beast will be given power from the one that is within him, to dominate the seven Heads (Arab Nations) and ten Horns (men who will be the voting members for the peace treaty). If you missed the explanation of the ten Horns and seven Heads, go to Chapter 13:1&2 in the first year. Now let’s go to the third verse in Chapter 13, which falls also in this second year.
One Head Wounded Chapter 13:3
Rev 13:3 “And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.”
Being the Word has shown that the seven heads of the Beast are nations, the wound that one of them will receive will undoubtedly take place in Israel when one of the seven Nations try to take her in the first year. Without a doubt the whole world will be watching. After a matter of time, this one nation will recover from its wound and be active again towards the end.
As you can tell when looking at your Chart, we have now completed all of the Scriptures for this second year. Now let’s go to the third Trumpet for all the Scriptures that fall in the third year.
