HOti ELthen he heMEra he meGAletes orGES auTON; kai tis DUna-tai staTHEnai ?
17 because the great :day of their :wrath is come: and who can stand?
NOTE: There are 7 seals, 7 trumps and 7 vials - 21 judgments altogether listed in the book of Revelation, over against the 10 plagues against Pharaoh in the book of Exodus. These 21 Revelation plagues are not overlapping, but separate according to the insight God gave to Daniel Juster. When one looks at the 7-fold key of the plagues on Pharaoh and the Exodus, this makes a great deal of sense, and greatly simplifies the many confusing theories that surround the interpretation of this last book of the Bible. See the note again under chapter 4 of Revelation to review these 7 insights.
Notice again, that just as Israel in Goshen shared the first few plagues with the Egyptians, so the church of the One New Man, Jew and Gentile, will share the first of these 21 judgments. But just as Goshen was a haven for Israel in the days of the Exodus, so “little Goshens” will be prepared for these end times to protect the true church from these later judgments and the wrath of God and the Lamb.
The first 4 seals releasing the 4 horses are serious indeed. Meditate on 6:9-11 and the fifth seal. The Holy Spirit, our Teacher, will be pleased to open the significance of this seal to us.
The church is notappointed to the wrath of God and of the Lamb. Tribulation? Yes - but that in no wisecompares with God's wrath. It is at this time the the little Goshens will do for us what Goshen did for Israel when in Egypt.
Isn't it interesting that the last book of the Bible is the only onethat promises us a blessing for reading it! The book of Daniel in the OT is very similar to this NT book. John, the beloved disciple of Jesus, has written 5 of the NT books. The Gospel of John is remarkable and different from the first 3 Synoptic Gospels. And his 3 letters that follow the two of Peter, are a greatblessing. But the book of Revelation, given by Jesus through His angel to John, and recorded by him, is the most remarkable book of the entire Bible. Let us take the exhortation of the first few verses, and regularly read it and meditate upon it. We will miss much if we fail to obtain and listen to the remarkable insights given on this book to Daniel Juster. J.A.W.
