AN EXPOSITION OF THE APOCALYPSE
Section 1 Subsection 1
THE FIRST GENERAL DIVISION OF THE SEVEN SEALED SCROLL.
The first four and THE SIXTH SEALS representative of the judicial manner of "taking out of the way" the PAGAN CONSTITUTION of the "Dreadful and Terrible Fourth Beast," which withheld the revelation Of "THE LAWLESS ONE;"(Dan.7:7; Apoc. 6; 2 Thess. 2: 3-9) and the consequent manifestation of the CATHOLIC MYSTERY OF INIQUITY or Man of Sin Power, in the Heaven of the said beast, or "GREAT FIERY-RED DR.AGON." (Apoc. 12:1-5, 7-13).
TIME OF EVENTS.
From A. D. 107 to A. D. 325. -- See Tab. Analysis, VoL 2, p. 97.
SIXTH SPECIAL DIVISION OF THE SEVEN SEALED SCROLL
ACT 6. -- SEAL 6
A great earthquake inaugurates this judicial period. War in the Heaven, (Apoc. 12:7) resulting in an eclipse, of the sun, in the moon becoming blood, in the stars of the heaven, the stars drawn by the Tail of the Dragon, (Apoc. 12:4) falling into the earth, and of the casting out thereinto of the great fiery-red Dragon. The heaven of the Dragon-Polity departs as a scroll rolled up; and every mountain and island change their places. The angels of the Dragon are cast out with him. (Apoc. 12:9) No place for them any more in the heaven from which they are ejected, having been effectually conquered by the Archer of the First Seal -- the Fellow-servants and Brethren of the souls under the Altar; who conquered him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony, on account of which they were slain, not loving their lives unto death (Apoc. 12:11;6:9). Great rejoicings in the heavens by them who succeed the ejected Dragon and his officials, who rage with great fury in the earth and sea of their late dominion. (Apoc. 12:12) The great day of Wrath upon Paganism.
The woman Jezebel who calls herself a prophetess, the Laodicean Apostasy, imperialized, and the Man of Sin Power revealed. (Apoc. 2:20)
TIME OF THE SEAL.
From A. D. 311.
THE LAODICEAN STATE.
Vol. 1. pp. 428,449; Vol. 2. pp. 97, 99, 263.
The "little strength" of the Philadelphian State exhausted, and Laodiceanism fully established, Pagan persecution having ceased, and "the Catholics," as nominal Christians were now called, being in high favor with the authorities, they say "We are rich, and increased in goods, and have need of nothing." -- Apoc. 3:17. Being "lukewarm," the Spirit "spues them out of his mouth." This state continues until abolished by the judgments of the Seventh Vial, which are executed by the Saints after the resurrection.
End of the "rest for a little season," when the "Despot Holy and True" avenges the blood of the souls under the altar, upon them that dwell upon the earth. A great earthquake inaugurates this day of vengeance. The woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, appears in the Roman Heaven invested with imperial dignity and glory. Her son, having triumphed over the Great Red Dragon, which sought to destroy him, becomes the sovereign ruler of the nations.
The Spirit "spues" her Laodicean element "out of his mouth," and a remnant, of her seed, as the woman fugitive, is found in the wilderness.
War ensues in the Roman Heaven between the powers there, which results in the ejection of the great Draco-Serpent Devil and Satan from thence. The "Brethren" and "Fellow-servants" of the souls under the altar rejoice at his expulsion. But woe betides the inhabiters of the earth and sea, where the Dragon retains power for a "short time" longer; and persecutes the constituents of the woman dwelling in his dominion.
The woman being in the wilderness is protected there for a period of 1260 days; and in her flight thither is pursued by the Serpent, her enemy, The Dragon is wroth with her; and resumes the war with the remnants of her seed.
TRANSLATION. Apoc. 12.
1. And a great sign appeared in the heaven; a woman who had been invested with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a wreath of twelve stars.
2. And being pregnant she cries being, in pangs and straining to bring forth.
3. And there appeared another sign in the heaven, and behold, a great fiery-red Dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his heads seven diadems: and his tail draws the third of the stars of the heaven, and he casts them into the earth.
4. And the dragon stood in the presence of the woman about to bring forth, that when she may have brought forth, he might devour her offspring.
5. And she brought forth a male child, who is about to rule all the nations with an iron sceptre: and her son was forcibly carried up to Deity and his throne.
6. And the woman fled into the wilderness where she has a place that had been prepared of the Deity, that they may sustain her there a thousand two hundred and sixty days.
7. And there was war in the heaven. The Michael and his angels waged war against the Dragon; and the dragon waged war and his angels.
8. And they prevailed not; neither was their place found any longerin the heaven.
9. And the great dragon, the old Serpent, surnamed Diabolos, was cast forth; and the Satan which deceives the whole habitable was cast into the earth and his angels were cast forth with him.
10. And I heard great voice saying in the heaven, Now is the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our Deity, and the dominion of His Anointed; for the prosecutor of our brethren, who accused them in the presence of our Deity, day and night, has been cast down.
11. And they overcame him through the blood of the Lamb and through the word of their testimony; and they loved not their life unto death.
12. On account of this let the heavens rejoice and those who tent in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and the sea, because the Diabolos
13. And when the Dragon saw that he was cast into the earth, he pursued the woman who brought forth the male.
14. And the two which seeks to sweep her away; but the Earth helps her, and defeats wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, that she might fly into wilderness, into her place, in which she is sustained there a time and times and half of a time, out of the sight of the serpent.
15. And the serpent cast out of his month after the woman water as a flood, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood.
16. And the earth ran with help for the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
17. And the dragon was enraged against the woman, and went away to wage war with the remnants of her seed who keep the commandments of the Deity and have the testimony of the Anointed Jesus.
