What is meant by....Time No Longer?
« on: Mon Feb 22, 2010 - 14:44:05 »
Revelation 10:1-4 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire; And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, " Seal up those thing which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not."

10:5-7 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sware by Him That liveth for ever and ever, Who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be TIME NO LONGER: But in the DAYS OF the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall BEGIN to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He hath declared to His servants the prophets.


  • He declares the mystery of God to His prophets in the last days, which are the days of the voice of the seventh angel and those prophets are the seven thunders that speak that mystery when they "uttered their voices." However, what they are to speak was not to be written by John. The mystery may be written but not the revelation of the mystery for that is sealed. Why? Because "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:" [Ecc.3:1] The revelation of the mystery is withheld until the last days, until the time of latter rain [Joel 2:23], which is when the Holy Spirit reveals (declares) that mystery to His prophets, the seven thunders and they then speak that mystery to all that will hear...or see (understand.)

    But, what is meant by "time no longer?" There is the millennium, a written, thousand year period of time and even if that is symbolic it is still....a length of time. Is it the "times of the gentiles" or the time of Satan's tribulation, the time of this present age....what is the time that should be no longer?

    The following passage from Job gives us the same meaning of time as in [Revelation 10:6] above. The concordance tells us it is......"The duration of the world. The measure of the continuance of anything."

Job 22:15-17 Hast thou marked the old way which wicked men have trodden? Which were cut down out of time, whose foundation was overflown with a flood: Which said unto GOD, 'Depart from us:' and what can the ALMIGHTY do for them?

  • I believe the answer to what time should be no longer is found in Daniel. Notice the similarites in the "man clothed in linen" and the seventh angel in Revelation.


Daniel 12:6-8 And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders? And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished. And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?

  • The end of the time of scattering the power of the holy people shall be finished!


12:9-12 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

  • The time of the end, which is the time of Satan's tribulation, when the "wicked do wickedly," when he will "scatter the power of the holy people," I believe, is the time that shall be no longer.

Hi Whirlwind, you are covering a whole bunch of territory here so I'll just start with one part of it. First of all, the mighty Angel of Revelation 10:1 is none other that Christ Himself. Something to consider is that is that this is a time during the tribulation and when Jesus says there shall be time no longer in Revelation 10:6 it is not the start of eternity; there is the remainder of the millennium to come. There is a time of the Gentiles that started with Nebuchadnezzar that will end when Jesus takes His own throne. Gentile nations at that time will be ruling in usurpation and their time has come to an end. Until this time Gentiles were given authority to trodden underfoot the Jews that actually started in 71 Ad and continues today again until Jesus take all authority. Now through that we read in Revelation 11:2. " . . it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months," that time of the Gentiles has ceased and they are doing that without authority; that authority ceased in Revelation 10:6.
 

Just something for you to consider in Jesus' name.

Agree, the Mighty Angel is Christ. The NIV has "There will be no more delay" instead of "that there should be TIME NO LONGER." I favor the NIV, it means the will be nor more delay of God's judgment of earth.

I will keep this simple and short as it is pretty much self explanatory when you read Rev 11:15-19 which is the seventh trumpet sounding and then you have the vial judgements in  Rev Chapter 16 to follow.

Time no longer here means the end of days here on earth as the seventh trumpet is about to be sounded and those who are in Christ will be caught up to meet him in the clouds and stand in His judgment for the things they did for him while on earth and those who rejected God will stand in His judgment and cast into the lake of fire with Satan and all his demons for eternity thus also ushers in the New heaven and New Jerusalem.

It looks to me like there are still other events yet to happen between the 'time will be no longer' statement and the white throne judgment.

First of all, the mighty Angel of Revelation 10:1 is none other that Christ Himself.

I don't agree. It says in Rev 10:5-6: And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

If this were Christ, He would not sware by Himself. (We know He created everything as it says in Col 1:16 and John 1:3)

At various times Jesus is compared with the sun.

Revelation 10:1  And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

Matthew 17:2  And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
  
Revelation 1:16  And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.  

Revelation 21:23  And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

Malachi 4:2  But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
----------------------------------------------
We find Jesus also as Revelation 10:4 as the Lion of Judah. "And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices."
----------------------------------------------

When Jesus becomes King of Kings, and Lord of lords He is sitting as God almighty and can sware by Himself.

Hebrews 6:13  For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself,

----------------------------------------------
When Jesus is shown with feet as pillars of fire, it shows judgment come. In fire we find both light and judgment.

John 5:22  For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
  
Isaiah 66:15  For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.
  
My thoughts.

We haven't seen anything yet. As Americans we still have certain freedoms, but even these freedoms are being slowly taken away as a socialist government is being established that will dictate it's czar power over the meaningless people it controls. This is happening in other countries that have lost all their freedoms as we head into a One World Government that will be ruled by Satan himself as he blindsides those he uses for his deceitful purposes.

We see increases almost daily in weather patterns as so many earthquakes, tsunamis and other so called natural disasters are happening all over the world. IMOP I think all these disasters are man made as man has the capability to cause such things to happen and it's all government controlled and hidden from public eye. Like I said though, it's just my opinion especially after seeing documentation of how one can create earthquakes and tsunamis.

God has always given us signs to watch out for before the return of Christ and these signs are becoming more prevalent with each passing day, but these signs are not to scare us, but to prepare us to watch for Christ return and be about our Fathers business of taking His word out to those who need to hear. Remember, no one knows when Christ will return not even himself, but for us to be ready for when he does. Might be in our lifetime or even hundreds of years down the road, but just be ready for any given moment that you will hear the seventh trumpet sound.
