Q. Thank you for your ministry. I have a question regarding Revelation 10:7. What mystery of God will be accomplished? It says that the prophets announced it previously, but I haven’t found any references to this passage in my research. It seems way late in the text to be a reference to the Rapture.
A. The seventh trumpet ushers in the bowl judgments, also known as the Great Tribulation. This is the point at which Satan is driven from Heaven and the Lord officially assumes His reign over planet Earth in preparation for the 2nd Coming (Rev. 11:15). These are the things the prophets have spoken of, so we know what He’s going to do. The mystery is why God would go to such lengths for a people who have nothing He needs. That’s what we don’t know.
