This is DAY THIRTY FIVE of the daily devotional.

I am releasing a 50 day daily devotional about the end-times as revealed in Scripture. Along with the text, I will be providing a video where I cover the text of the day, and @verbal-d will be providing an audio version of it. That way, whether you want to read, watch, or listen, you'll be able to enjoy this study as you wish.

The plan is to release this devotional over the next 50 consecutive days, but life may "get in the way." We will do our best, but please be patient with me if I fall behind.

DAY 35 - TIMING : Part 3

The next event in Matthew gives us more food for thought pertaining to timing.

“And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” (Matthew 24:30-31)

I believe that this event is the rapture. If it is, and every believer has just left earth after the sun and moon were darkened, then that explains why every person on earth is a nonbeliever after the same event in Revelation 6. These believers would have just come out of the “great tribulation,” since they were actually on earth to experience it. If those remaining requirements are met after the sixth seal is opened, (Dark Sun & Blood Moon, The Removal of True Believers (Rapture), and The Sealing of the 144,000), then the seventh seal can now be opened. If the book indeed contains the wrath of God, once the last seal preventing its opening is removed, we should see God’s end-time wrath finally begin.

“And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand. And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.” (Revelation 8:1-5)

At this point, we see that all of heaven becomes completely silent for about half an hour, perhaps out of fearful expectation because of what is about to be unleashed. We also see seven angels standing before God being given seven trumpets. Another angel fills a golden censer with fire from the altar before the throne of God, and casts it into the earth. Unlike with the seals, we finally actually see something originating from before God in heaven and being unleashed upon the earth. After this we see both seven trumpets and seven vials. The trumpets are not specifically called God’s wrath, but there is nothing to rule out this possibility, as there is with the seals. The vials are definitely referred to as God’s wrath.

“And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.” (Revelation 15:1)

“And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.” (Revelation 16:1)

Point #1: Before the “Day of the Lord” begins, a sign in the sun and moon must occur, as well as the rapture.

Point #2: When the timing of events is compared, it seems very likely that Revelation 6 & 7 address the same events as the “Olivet Discourse”.


If anyone is really interested, I did post the entire volume through an alt account over a year ago. I did so as an experiment to see how hard it would be for a new user to get noticed on steemit, so I didn't let anyone know that I was doing it. You can click here to a post that has links to the entire 50 days of this devotional if you really want to read ahead. That information has always been available there since I first posted it. It is not the purpose of this series to just copy all of my previous work, but instead to transform it into some new outlets by releasing it in an audio and video format, to broaden the reach that this work has.

Again, though I will certainly never claim to know it all, I do believe that many are being lead astray by some popular beliefs. I hope that this project will be able to help many others understand the end-times more accurately. Thanks!


Just in case you are new to this series and wanted to check out the previous audio or videos, here are links to the posts from each day of this series.

Also - A special thanks to @allforthegood for helping design my cover image!

Until next time…

great work !!!


Thank you!

There are some schools of thought which side with the theory of pre-tribulation rupture, intra-tribulation rupture and post-tribulation rupture..however, I think the main thing is to be ruptured. No one should have to see the wrath of God unleashed on the earth.
All we need is believe in his son
John 6:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
Thank you @papa-pepper for your exegesis

Fantastic @papa-pepper.... I love this post, very interested...!!!.

Very good work @papapepper

This is fantastic! Thank you for sharing! followed you already.


Thank you very much!

Pappa-pepper, some people view the end times negatively. I on the other hand is glad for that day to come. I wonder how would rapture feel.
Also, some people discredit the idea of rapture and even the bible as well. Oh well

Thanks for sharing the end time event as recorded in the bible.

Good post my friend,...i like your post

whether it is a sign of the world is going to end.

Hmm, informative, thank you for this post.

Very interesting! As we may live in the end of times or what I know as Mother Earths transition I have been taught to prepare ourselves. Prepare for disasters. Prepare to serve the confusion of those left behind. I am here to serve. Thank you!

Soon, the midnight strikes and the door of grace is shut! Be prepared in holiness and Righteousness.

Hmmm... this piece is so inspiring. Am happy you posted it. Thanks alot Sir

the Lord is so great and so powerful that His voice stills the roaring of the waters. So this can also be applied to the event which will happen at the rapture; the silence which will be experienced in heaven
