AND NO MAN WAS ABLE TO ENTER THE TEMPLE!!


“Revelation 15:4-8 says “Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest. And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle in heaven was opened: And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles. And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; AND NO MAN WAS ABLE TO ENTER INTO THE TEMPLE, TILL THE SEVEN PLAGUES OF THE SEVEN ANGELS WERE FULFILLED.” These seven plagues would be the last on Old Testament Jerusalem in A.D. 70. Notice that the ‘…temple of the tabernacle in heaven was opened…’ This was telling us that the beginning of the millennial reign of Jesus the Christ was about to begin in heaven: Exodus 40:34-37 tells us that when the glory cloud of God covered Israel that Israel didn’t journey; but when it lifted then they were able to move forward: “Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. And Moses WAS NOT ABLE TO ENTER INTO THE TENT of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys: But if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up.” Revelation 11:19 says “And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.” The ‘Ark of his Testament’ is Jesus Christ himself. We must understand that the book of Revelation is not in chronological order. So, the smoke from the glory of God that was seen in Revelation 15 upon its removal signals that in chapter 11 that the millennial reign again was about to take place. Revelation 11 also shows “the ark of his testament” being Christ was arising to judge Jerusalem (Ps.68:1, Num.10:35-36).”
