    POWERS OF THE HEAVENS SHAKEN

    This event we must regard as being future. It holds the same place in the events of this chapter, that the departing of the heavens as a scroll does in the events of the sixth seal of Revelation 6. Both follow the falling stars. Please compare Matthew 24:29, 30, with Revelation 6:12, 17. The Scriptures plainly teach that, prior to the resurrection of the just by the voice of the Son of God, the voice of God the Father will shake the heavens and the earth, when will be fulfilled the shaking of the powers of the heavens. This will probably take place at the pouring out of the seventh vial into the air. Revelation 16:17. Then it is said, “And there came a great voice out of the temple of Heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.” This is not the voice of the Son of God as he descends to raise the dead. It comes from the throne of God in the temple of Heaven. “Whose voice then shook the earth; but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.” Hebrews 12:26. “The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earth shall shake; but the Lord will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.” Joel 3:16.SCOC 42.1

    We would not speak too positively of future events; but venture the opinion that the voice of the Father will shake the heavens and the earth before the sign of the Son of Man appears. The people of God will be safe. Islands may disappear, and mountains be thrown down; but the saints will remain unharmed. Earthquakes may break up the earth’s surface, so that kings and nobles, rich and poor, bond and free, may hide “themselves in dens and in the rocks of the mountains,” still God will be the hope of his people.SCOC 43.1
