Revelation Day 26


What are the 7 seals, 7 trumpets and 7 angels with the 7 plagues and 7 bowls of wrath?

Day 26

B. Hodge, Biblical Authority Ministries, June 26, 2020

Revelation, which is written with a high prophetic style of literature with images and metaphors, uses the number 7 extensively. Hopefully, this “Chart of Sevens” with biblical references helps clarify the meaning behind some of this imagery.

[1] The seals are being broken, thus we are revealed what is behind the seals. In some cases, things were sealed up as in Daniel 8:26, 12:4, and Revelation 10:4 and the seal means it was not to be opened or revealed to us.
