Revelation 8:1-5 is a Temple Cleansing Precursor Event Parallel to Zechariah 3:4
Since Zechariah 3 was written for the temple COMPLETION “headstone” (Zech4:6-8) upon that Isaiah 28:16 temple “FOUNDATION stone” (ca. 1914), which that is precisely what Zechariah applies to – completion, then of course, scriptural and logically, Zechariah will apply to the COMPLETION phase fully in the near future.
Zechariah was even written (ca. 518 BC) AFTER the temple foundation of 537-536BCE to bolster Haggai’s (ca. 520BCE) message with that second round of prophecy. [See, *** it-1 p. 583 Darius ***]
(Isaiah 28:16) therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah has said: “Here I am laying as a foundation in Zion a stone, a tried stone, the precious corner of a sure foundation. No one exercising faith will get panicky.
2. Temple Head – Completion
(Psalm 118:22) The stone that the builders rejected Has become the head of the corner.
(Zechariah 4:7) And he will certainly bring forth the headstone.
3. Completion Stone with a Cleansing
(Zechariah 3:9) For, look! the stone that I have put before Joshua! Upon the one stone there are seven eyes. Here I am engraving its engraving,’ is the utterance of Jehovah of armies, ‘and I will take away the error of that land in one day.’
Temple 144000 Must Complete Prior to Armageddon
That is how Jehovah shows, Zechariah MUST apply most fully to “head stone” temple COMPLETION 144000 totality, and that parallels Zechariah 3 to Malachi 3 FINAL fulfillment, so that too, MUST have a temple COMPLETION “inspection”, “cleansing” and so on.
That of course links and leads to a whole other ” can of worms” of bible prophecy in activation in final fulfillment, Zechariah 4 paralleling Revelation 11. This linkage is explicitly shown related to each other by Jehovah in that Revelation 11 prophecy; (Rev11:4 = Zech4:14)
Thus scripturally AND plain logic, Revelation 11 MUST be activated along with Zechariah 3-4 in final fulfillment, temple COMPLETION in due time after that CLEANSING manifestation – SOON.
How Does Revelation 8 Final Fulfillment Fit In?
Read Isaiah 6, that was Isaiah’s cleansing prior to his commission, and it is a temple vision, then this fire cleanse from the altar:
(Isaiah 6:5-7) And I proceeded to say: “Woe to me! For I am as good as brought to silence, because a man unclean in lips I am, and in among a people unclean in lips I am dwelling; for my eyes have seen the King, Jehovah of armies, himself!” 6 At that, one of the seraphs flew to me, and in his hand there was a glowing coal that he had taken with tongs off the altar. 7 And he proceeded to touch my mouth and to say: “Look! This has touched your lips, and your error has departed and your sin itself is atoned for.”
Well, lo and behold, look at this angel number 8, “another angel” and the prayers he is offering, this “fire” is ALSO a preliminary cleansing to the final 7trumpets that MUST follow this manifestation SOON:
(Revelation 8:1-6) And when he opened the seventh seal, a silence occurred in heaven for about a half hour. 2 And I saw the seven angels that stand before God, and seven trumpets were given them. 3 And another angel arrived and stood at the altar, having a golden incense vessel; and a large quantity of incense was given him to offer it with the prayers of all the holy ones upon the golden altar that was before the throne. 4 And the smoke of the incense ascended from the hand of the angel with the prayers of the holy ones before God. 5a But right away the angel took the incense vessel, and he filled it with some of the fire of the altar and hurled it to the earth.
And what occurs? A surge of “new light” and explanations “voices”, from a premonitory ‘thunder”, shaking JW’s up:
(Revelation 8:5b) And thunders occurred and voices and lightnings and an earthquake.
And that leads to this unknown time period to this final preparation of this temple completion (ca. Trumpet 7; Rev11:11-12; 15-19) phase:
(Revelation 8:6) And the seven angels with the seven trumpets prepared to blow them.
Revelation 8:1-5 Preparation for Temple Cleansing Requests
So that means Zechariah 3 cleansing, and Malachi 3, are somewhere involved in that set of Revelation 8:3 prayers that result in this answer from God in Rev8:1-5.
Revelation8:1-5 is the staging cleansing that leads to the knowledge to come forth in the intervening 7 trumpets, BUT the interim time period to the actual first trumpet, which parallels the first bowl of Revelation 16, and so on, is NOT really known as to duration. But the answer it appears, was relatively “right away”; (Rev8:5a)
Well obviously the first 4 trumpets (Rev8) will cover this development we have been shown, but with new focus of course, and greater ultimate meaning in the “burning mountain” (globalist scale world government), “lamp” (lawless one development), wormwood, 1/3 light, etc.
And that leads to the “eagles” (glorified anointed) involved in the final 3 trumpets and woes of Revelation 9:
(Revelation 8:13) And I saw, and I heard an eagle flying in midheaven say with a loud voice: “Woe, woe, woe to those dwelling on the earth because of the rest of the trumpet blasts of the three angels who are about to blow their trumpets!”
And obviously that threads on over Revelation 9 as a continuum (it is active since 1919) with a new jolt of light and commission cleansing for Jehovah’s witnesses worldwide, over to Revelation 10 total understanding of the “little scroll” “opened” and “eaten” and through Revelation 11 finality of Trumpet 7 (Rev11:15-18 compare Rev10:7), right after bowl “in the air” 7! (Revelation 16:17) As Christ MUST arrive in full glory to complete the temple as Head Stone; Zech4:6-8)
An Important Link in Final Fulfillment Prophecy
That Rev 8:1-5 “link in” into this progression was a big question. Now it appears from Isaiah 6’s “altar fire” that this is to to be a divine “fire” cleansing in Revelation 8:1-5 leading to greater understanding; “lightnings” with better explanation; “voices”. So Rev8:1-5 is good cleaning “fire” (Mal3:1-4), and a response to prayers (Rev8:3), that tells us other Jehovah’s witnesses (anointed, and others) also see what is developing that we also see in the “JW org” that MUST be removed soon.
Amazing how Isaiah 6 just opened out of the blue reviewing the connection to Revelation 8:1-5. Isaiah was also in a “send me” request to God, and a Jehovah approved “divine commission” initiating in Isaiah 6, similarly related to the Zechariah 3:5-9, cleansing, ultimatum and commissioning as well:
(Zechariah 3:5-9) At that I said: “Let them put a clean turban [new JW head admin] upon his head.” And they proceeded to put the clean turban upon his head and to clothe him with garments; and the angel of Jehovah was standing by. 6 And the angel of Jehovah began to bear witness to Joshua, saying:
(Zechariah 3:7) “This is what Jehovah of armies has said, ‘If it is in my ways that you will walk, and if it is my obligation that you will keep, then also it will be you that will judge my house and also keep my courtyards; and I shall certainly give you free access among these who are standing by.’
(Zechariah 3:8) “‘Hear, please, O Joshua the high priest, you and your companions who are sitting before you, for they are men serving as portents; for here I am bringing in my servant Sprout!
3. Christ Temple Finalizing and Completing “Head Stone” of Zechariah 4:6-9:
(Zechariah 3:9) For, look! the [head] stone that I have put before Joshua! Upon the one stone there are seven eyes. Here I am engraving its engraving,’ is the utterance of Jehovah of armies, ‘and I will take away the error of that land in one day.’
And that final “error” removed, mentioned above, may be also in the Revelation 8:1-5 lead-in “right away” “altar” ” fire” cleanse from the altar by the angel (Zech3:4). That may very well be the “befouled garments” being transitioned out of the JW organization; This may very well be a massive event on the JW organization worldwide – a first strike in stealth mode convergent with a globalist world event.
AND, Isaiah defines the “earth” as Jehovah’s witnesses, in at least that Revelation 8:1-5 meaning of “earth”:
(Isaiah 6:3) The fullness of all the earth is his glory.”
Thus it can apply to the overall JW ” temple” system that is being “filled” with this preliminary ” glory of God” clean-out (Isa6:1-4), and reinvigoration of overall scope of what the final, second “two witnesses” commission really is; worldwide and a completion of the truth prior to it.
But since there can be a time pause after Rev8:1-5, for that “light” to sink in to Jehovah’s Witnesses, I assume, it still seems to indicate Zechariah 3:2-9 activating will be Revelation 8:1-5 activating TOO – yikes! lol.
Then the possibility of the subsequent unknown interim period length, when the angels “prepare to blow” those 7 trumpet world heralds, at some point guaranteed after this – like that angel “access among these” upgrade as well of Zech3:5-6, IN THE NEAR FUTURE, IN TEMPLE COMPLETION SOON.
So MAN!!! When this manifests in the final Zechariah 3:2-4 “trigger event” IN Jehovah’s witnesses “temple”, it is going to lead to the final round of the climax 7 Trumpets over time – all the way to the end of the world, with total focus on this actual reality in operation from God and Christ – amazing!!
So, you have arrived just in time!!!! LOL!!!
Zechariah 3:4 Triggers the Preparation for the 7 Trumpets
