Seven Thunders


What, in your opinion, was the content/nature of the seven thunders in the book of Revelation, that John was forbidden to record? The events of Revelation are quite terrifying. What could possibly be worse, so much so that the nature/content of the seven thunders is kept secret?


When John was told not to write down what the seven thunders said we were being told that we would have no advance knowledge of this event. Some speculate that it’s a secret cycle of judgments, but there’s no way of knowing that. It could be an act of mercy, or it could be a move of the Holy Spirit to gather more souls before the door to heaven closes. We simply don’t know nor will we until we witness them from our new home in the heavenlies.
