149. The Great and marvelous sign in heaven, Rev. 15:1.
Greatest of all signs in the heaven is the sign of the Son of man which will appear before Coming of Jesus, Mat. 24:30 as about that it has already been told, see d.e.122. There will be it in the beginning of the Day of wrath, Rev.6:16 when two Prophets still will be on the ground. Apostle John, being one of them, too will see this sign as he and writes in the given verse. The sign will appear, when 42 months of authority of the beast will already begin, Rev.13:5; when people God's already will leave an empire of the beast and will be in wilderness, see d.e.125; when Jerusalem will be surrounded by armies (Luke 21:20) before its capture. Pagans will not want that over them the Christ to reign, Luke 19:14; they will accept the antichrist, John 5:43 also will worship to him, Rev. 13:8. The Lord will be angry and in his wrath will tell them: «Yet have I set my King », Ps. 2:5, 6. Will tell, including by means of the Great sign: all people will see Jesus, sitting on God’s a throne and in clothes of the King of kings, Rev.6:16. After occurrence of this sign two prophets will remain on the ground two more months. The Day of wrath begins with occurrence of the sign and comes to an end with seven vials of wrath when last will be poured out of them.
150. A sea of glass mingled with fire, Rev. 15:2.
Means saint God's people, see. d.e.51, mixed with fire of tests, 1Pet.4:12. This is participation in Christ’s sufferings, which will before His revelation, 1Pet.4:13. Test lies in that the beast will put the mark and to force Christians to worship to the image of the beast, see d.e. 132-139, will put the brand with number 666. In the Heavens will appear only those that had gotten the victory over all that; they will stand on the glass sea, which - before throne of God. These are those who will not worship to the beast and will not accept his brand. The given test will be before Coming of the Christ.
151. The song of Moses and the song of the Lamb, Rev.15:3.
It is written down in the book Exod, 15:1-18. It will be sung by the saved Christians in heaven wherefore they have been delivered by the God in same way as God's people in days of Moses:
Then was the horse and the rider will cast into (Red) sea, and now will be conquered the army of the antichrist, Ex.15:1.
Then enemies were struck down by right hand of God, Ex.15:6 and present enemies will be conquered by Him too, Rev. 17:14.
In time of Moses the wrath of God burned of Egyptians as straw, Ex.15:7, 9:24 and last days too will flare up wrath God's, Ps. 2:12, Rev. 6:17, Mal.4:1.
« The enemy said: I will pursue, I will overtake … my hand shall destroy them », Ex.15:9. In Newtestament’s time the enemy will act the same: And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a floodafter the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood, Rev.12:15. Then enemies were absorbed with the ground, Ex.15:12, and in the near future the ground too will swallow of enemies, Rev.12:16. Then the God conducted people in the ground promised, Ex.15:13, now - in heavenly City (about what it has been told in the Song already then, Ex.15:17).
Then people were afraid, Ex.15:14. During anger of God recently also will come in fear, Rev.11:13. The song of Moses will sing in the heaven after Catching up of Church when on the ground judgment of God will already open, Rev.15:4 as a result of which the Gentiles who have escaped of people will come and will orship before the God, Zech.13: 8, 9.
152. The temple … in heaven was opened, Rev. 15:5.
Temple as itself in heaven is not present, Rev.21:22, but at that time in heaven will open God’s Church which is called as the TEMPLE, 1Cor. 3:16, 17, see also d.e.119. It will appear there after Catching up.
2. Saved men will open as sons of God, will be transfigured and become similar to Him (i.e. who was included into His Church), Rom.8:18, 19; 1John.3:2.
153. «And the seven Angels came out of the temple having the seven plagues », Rev.15:6.
Seven Archangels with seven vials of wrath of God mean. These seven vials of wrath will be poured out on the ground when the Church that is the Temple God's will be already in heaven. The temple (that is Church) will face to throne of God and Angels, leaving from a throne of God in this way «will come out of the temple » wherefore it will be in the same place, at presence of God, - «know ye not that ye are the temple of God?», 1Cor.3:16.
154. « One of the four beasts gave unto the seven Angels seven golden vials », Rev.15:7.
Four animals are Seraphims, Is. 6:2, Rev. 4:8. They takes up higher position, than seven Archangels, submit directly to the God. Seven bowls to seven Angels will be given by one of Seraphims in charge of whom there are punishments.
155. « And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from his power », Rev.15:8.
In due course the God’s temple constructed by Solomon was filled with a cloud. « So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God », 2Chr.5:13, 14. After catching up of Church it, being a temple, too will be filled from the glory of God. Apostle Paul writes that “in us the glory shall be revealed”, Rom.8:18. Apostle John adds: “… when he shall appear, we shall be like him”, 1John 3:2. This is transfiguration in an image of Jesus. Saved men will be equal to Angels and there are really sons of God, Luke 20:36. The Lord will give and from the force: “It is God that girdeth me with strength”, Ps. 18:32. Glory of God - in the face of Jesus Christ, 2Cor.4: 6.
156. « No one could enter the temple », Rev.15:8 (RSV).
After Catching up of Church the Holy Spirit will leave, will undertaken from the ground. People “shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it”, Amos 8:12. This is the time when « nobody could enter into a temple » that is could not enter into Church, could not join Church. Such opportunity will not be and during outpouring bowls of wrath of God. Day of salvation at that time already will end.
