3 The Four Winds The Text Revelation 7: And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. 2. And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,

4 The Four Winds The Text 3. Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. 4. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: [and there were] sealed an hundred [and] forty [and] four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

13 The Four Winds The Sealing

14 The Four Winds Who is Sealed

15 Four Winds "The morning cometh, and also the night." "The night cometh in which no man can work." When that is true, you may know that "the door is shut," that all the wise virgins have entered in, that all have been proved, and that all vacancies have been acceptably filled. All the special "servants of God" having by that time been "sealed in their foreheads" (given an intellectual appreciation of God's plan), the four winds will be loosed (Rev 7:1-3) C-226

16 The Four Winds What does it mean to be sealed.

17 The Four Winds Hear Sealing VS Head Sealing

18 The Four Winds When do we know that they are sealed?

19 The Four Winds What Happens After The Sealing

20 Four Winds Some Have Suggested: The winds are let loose but no whirlwind. The winds are let loose but no whirlwind. The winds are let loose and it is all over. The winds are let loose and it is all over. The winds held back but there are winds. The winds held back but there are winds.

23 Four Winds Until Until  Greek :  Shows waiting

24 Four Winds What Conclusions? What Conclusions? All the saints are not sealed. At some point they will be. The winds will be let loose then.

25 The Four Winds The Trouble

26 The Four Winds R1963 Questioner describes anarchy Questioner describes anarchy (1) of commerce--no railroads will be in operation, no post office service, no telegraph lines open; (2) of business--no manufactories will be running, no trade carried on, except in a primitive way and confined to narrow limits; (3) of government--there will be no protection to individuals except what their own strength affords. The country will be filled with bands of marauders (4) Cities and towns will be burned or fall into ruin from neglect, bridges, etc., be destroyed, the machinery, etc

27 The Four Winds Bro Russel's Response The above conception of the coming trouble is, we believe, a very moderate one. The account of the trouble upon Jerusalem at its fall is much more thrillingly awful; so also is the record of the reign of terror in France a century ago. Both of these great events are mentioned in Scripture as illustrations of the coming general trouble; which, however, it is distinctly declared, will be worse than either of these;--"a time of trouble such as was not since there was a nation."

28 The Four Winds Bro Russel's Response continued While the Roman empire occupies an important place in the prophetic history of the past eighteen centuries, yet we are to remember that the great troubles marking "the day of the Lord" are shifted to symbolic Babylon--confused nominal Christendom--which certainly includes Great Britain and the United States. Indeed, as the severest troubles came at the first advent upon those who had seen the great Light and rejected Him, so we may well fear that the great privileges and blessings enjoyed by the English speaking peoples have brought great responsibilities and will bring severe tribulations.

29 Four Winds Some Have Suggested: The winds are let loose but no whirlwind. The winds are let loose but no whirlwind. The winds are let loose and it is all over. The winds are let loose and it is all over. The winds held back but there are winds. The winds held back but there are winds.

30 The Four Winds They are not released yet. They are not released yet. When they do it will be very bad When they do it will be very bad The church will be taken. The church will be taken.

31 Four Winds The vision of Elijah The vision of Elijah  The Wind  The Earth Quake  The Fire
