Revelation chapter 8, Dr Eric continues exploring the book of revelation. The book of revelation, for proper understanding of the book, two things to consider; 1) the use of metaphoric language. this is important to take note of, because it would be very difficult to take everything you hear in the book to be literal. for example, when the book talks about the beast of ten horns and the face of a lion, that is metaphoric it’s not literal. 2) the book of revelation is written in a loop, meaning to say its sayings and meanings are constructed in a way that is considered to be known as a loop not linear structuring, thus if you happen to read the book as you would any other books, having the beginning, body then the end, you would miss out everything. In this chapter, we hear of the seven trumpets. These are the judgements God is pouring out on the earth. The judgements goes along, chapters 9, 10, 11 up to 13. And the of exodus helps us to understand more of these judgements by shading the picture of how they are to take place. In chapter 7 of exodus, God frees his people with his majestic hand by using the ten plagues. The same, God will do to free his people once and for all with his hand by the means of the judgements also known as the seven trumpets.
