1 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.
As Christ says in Mark 13:11 to those who will be delivered up during the woe of the sixth trumpet: “…take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Spirit.”
First through the church in Philadelphia (who are of the seven thousand Zadok) which is what will cause the church in Smyrna (who are the 144,000) to repent along with many out of the other churches written of in chapters 1, 2 and 3 of this book of Revelation whereby they can be grafted back into God’s family tree and take part in the first resurrection when the seventh angel sounds.
5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, (but as you can see pointed out in the Companion Bible this should read when the seventh angel is about to sound in other words: during the days of the woe of the sixth trumpet) the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
Because during the sixth trumpet the Holy Spirit will speak through those who get delivered up and what the Holy Spirit will say through them is what the seven thunders are symbolic of.
John himself was one of the twelve apostles who were spoken through by the Holy Spirit (as you can see in Acts chapter 2) which was a type of what will happen during the sixth trumpet when the Holy Spirit will speak through those of the church in Philadelphia who will have the seal of God in their foreheads throughout the entire five month long hour of temptation.
The 144,000 will receive the seed of the seal of God during the grace period of the fifth trumpet which will come to fruition when the Holy Spirit speaks through those of the church in Philadelphia when they get delivered up to Death (which is one of Satan’s names) for refusing to participate in Satan’s one world religious system that will come into being in the midst of Daniel’s 70th Week which was seven years but is now shortened to five months.
8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.
9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
Again: John and the other eleven apostles were (in Acts chapter 2) a type of those who received the seal of God in their foreheads before the hour of temptation begins.
10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
John being among the armies which were in heaven made up of those of the seven thousand Zadok that will return with the TRUE Christ at the seventh trumpet.
The Zadok (along with the rest of the millennial priesthood) are who Christ will utilize to distribute His millennial curriculum to those who failed to take part in the first resurrection whereby (if they so choose) after having absorbed Christ’s teachings of discipline they can stand against Satan after the thousand years are finished, take part in the second resurrection and then go into the Eternity which is the third world age.
