  4. Blow trumpets.
  5. Pour vials.
  6. Worship God/Jesus.
  7. Witness/testimony to Christ.
  8. Signify prophecy.
  9. Refuse to be worshipped.
  10. Battle Satan and fallen angels.
  11. Loosen fallen angels from imprisonment.
  12. Chain Satan in bottomless pit.
  13. Throw Antichrist, False Prophet into lake of fire.
  14. Prophecy.

  16. Give offerings to God (prayers of saints).
  17. Given a key to open the bottomless pit.

  20. Rejoice.
  21. Command John.
  22. Proclaim the Gospel.
  23. Measure.
  24. Command demonic creatures.

Commentary: In most cases, it is clear that an appointed angel is making the statement or proclamation. This is one of the roles or duties (among many) of selected angels throughout the Bible. Why would angels be making statements or proclamations? They are instructed and authorized to do so. They proclaim Christ’s rulership and reign on earth. They proclaim blessings on those martyred during the combined Tribulation period. They identify attributes of the Lord God Almighty. They proclaim the righteousness of his judgements. They issue a command and warning to people in Babylon. They instruct all men to praise God. They proclaim that God loves his people and wants to be with them and dwell with them. In the most simplest of words, they communicate directly with mankind, on behalf of the Triune God. Interestingly, some Holy angels seem to have a role of interceding with fallen angels, to fulfill the will of God. Michael and his angels war against Satan and his angels. A Holy angel grabs and chains Satan in the bottomless pit. An angel lets loose the four fallen angels at the Euphrates River. Christ gives one of his angels the key to the bottomless pit in order to let loose the demonic locusts. Holy angels throw the antichrist and false prophet into the lake of fire.

Some Holy angels have a role of interceding in nature, on behalf of God. They have some degree of control over the weather, water, fire winds, animal kingdom, sun, moon and earth. With the exception of Christ opening the first seven (7) book seals, Holy angels are directly involved in administering God’s will through the seven (7) trumpet and seven (7) vial plagues wich affect the earth and nature. For the diligent Bible students among you, notice that the Holy angels most prominent role is to declare/pronounce or to proclaim, in addition to providing prophecy. These two angelic functions are mentioned more times throughout the book of Revelation, than any other angelic function. This is not to say that these functions are more important than other functions. Most (if not all) Holy angels seem to have one (or several) role or job functions in the administration of God’s creation. However, in the context of the book of Revelation being mostly prophetic, it makes logical sense that most angelic involvement would be communicative and prophetic in nature. It is believed that a class of holy angels have a specific role of being messengers or communicators with mankind, when it is the will the God for them to do so. Discerning students will also notice that angels also share in the worship of Christ (The Lamb) and of God. Holy angels are very busy creations functioning on earth and in heaven, and most people think that angels just sit on clouds playing harps.

Lastly, it is interesting to note that John, the Apostle, one of Christ’s key Apostle’s was twice inclined to worship a Holy angel who was communicating with him. The Holy angel sternly told John not to worship him, but to instead worship God. If one of the holiest, most obedient of Christ’s servants was inclined to worship a Holy angel, what would this suggest about evil men (who have no restraint) living during the Tribulation period worshipping evil, fallen angels who are satanically motivated deceive them? Could these fallen angels have a part to play in the “Great Deception or Delsusion” that God allows to occur on earth during the Tribulation and Great Tribulation?

Night Watchman Note; We are to ‘be watchful’ in helping to understand today’s events as related to biblical prophecy. That is what ‘watchmen or women’ do. Jesus made clear that when He actually does come for His disciples, His wise and faithful servants would be aware of the time because they would be watching. They would not know the ‘day or the hour’ of His return, but would know the ‘season of the times.’ They would know the season of the times by WATCHING those things ‘coming to pass or occurring’ as Jesus said they would. The ‘BENCHMARK SIGN(s)’ always point towards Israel / Jacob. God’s prophetic timepiece. The FALSE PEACE COVENANT confirmed by the Prince/Beast among MENA (the many) is the ‘key sign’ of the times or the season of the times. Yes, we are in that period. The Prince/Beast will likely confirm and enhance the current ‘normalization’ agreement with Jacob to be a ‘peace’ agreement, to be extended to 7 years from the current 5 years, to include some agreement permitting the rebuilding of the third temple in exchange for ‘some portion of Jerusalem.’ The current ‘investment’ period for the Palestinians stands at five (5) years. This will likely occur AFTER the Bride, Disciples or True Church is removed from the earth via the Rapture / Harpazo / Redemption / ‘Twinkling’.

1 Thessalonians 5:2-4; For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. (Be Watching).

Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Revelation 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

‘Increasing Like Labor Pains.’ ‘Fearful Sights.’ ‘Perilous Times.’ ‘Men’s hearts failing with fear.’ Great Convergence of Signs.’ REDEMPTION IMMINENT.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).
