Revelation Chapter 7 & 8: Earth's destruction Begins:
Chapter 7 is parenthetical and occurs at the mid point of the last Seven years before our Lord's Return in Power and Glory. The 144,000 Jewish male virgins are sealed with God's protection from the Trumpets and Vials. God prepares them for their mission described in Chapter 14:
 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
Note after these things: "Things" which are not in the chronological order of end days events but in the order of the visions John was given. The 144,000 Jewish male virgins discussed in this chapter are the firstfruits of the Lamb, both the church in the wilderness of Moses Day and the church of the first born in Heaven and are deployed after the rapture when the abomination occurs.
 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
This is a direct reference to the trumpet announcements, the first four hurt the earth and the sea, the last three trumpets will be the 3 WOES which give final warnings that God is about to catch up to Heaven His persecuted Saints and Pour out His Wrath against those whom remain.
 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
God redeems the 144,000 from the earth being the first-fruits without guile and adultery against God and He seals and protects them from the trumpets and the vials.
These 144,000 were the first fruits of the nation of Israel whom believed on Jesus as the Messiah BEFORE, DURING and soon AFTER Our Lord's earthly Ministry and followed Jesus as Jesus said to follow Him. They are the church of the first born in Heaven. More specifics on these 144,000 are provided on our Chapter 14 page.
Since the Trumpets announcements do harm the earth and the sea then this event occurs after the Silence in Heaven for the first half of the final seven years or 1230 days and just before the Seven Trumpet announcements are made. This sealing of His 144,000 jewish male virgins marks the beginning of God's Vengeance after 1230 days of persecutions against His Disciples. All of the Trumpet announcements, the Rapture and the abomination of desolation occurs during a very short period at the mid point of the last seven years. God seals His Witnesses from harm during HIS WRATH.
 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
 Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.
 Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.
 Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.
 Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
They are now sealed of God and prepared for their ministry which is later described in Chapter 14 to PREACH THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL.
 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
Remember the palm leafs laid down before Jesus when He entered Jerusalem? It was premature the first time and misunderstood by all. Now it is the correct time and Jesus is Coming to set up His Kingdom.
Verses 9 through 17 are parenthetical and explained after verse 14 below:
 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
**This passage is referencing the period and events described as part of the sixth seal summary and before the 7th Seal is loosed by the Lord Jesus. This passage references both the church age saints murdered for the Testimony or Jesus prior to the mid-point Rapture discussed later AND the 144,000 Jewish male virgins redeemed from the earth whom have received the spirits of just men made perfect.
He is coming to take vengeance upon all that know not God and that obey not the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The closer we get to the rise of power of the man of sin the farther the world falls away from God and His Truth. Hearts are hardened to believe the LIE of the beast's fake morality and worship him as a counterfeit "god". Our Lord sends strong delusion to seal their fates forever. This is the falling away from the true faith of the Gospel….
 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
Only these 144,000 redeemed from the earth to preach the Everlasting Gospel after the Rapture will be killed for the witness and testimony of Jesus Christ throughout the final 42 months. Everyone whom believes the Everlasting Gospel, avoids the mark of the beast and survives the Wrath of God will be allowed entrance into our Lord's Millennial Kingdom. Fast forward to God's Two Witnesses whom shut up the rain and bring intense heat upon the earth during its last 3.5 years.
 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
The tears come from the massive persecutions and suffering of true believers during the final seven years. We will see ourselves and our loved ones locked out of society, beaten, tortured and killed for Christ.
Parenthetical ends and Chapter 6 continues with Chapter 8:
1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
This is a hint from God that the Trumpets occur in rapid succession right before the mid-point of the Tribulation period after this Silence in Heaven. Few Spirit indwelt believers remain at this point to see the Trumpets and the Rapture.
It is this short period of time in which all the Trumpets are unleashed in rapid succession ending with the Beast stopping the daily sacrifices that were allowed in Jerusalem for a short period prior TO DECLARE himself “as god”. After all, there will be no need for the daily sacrifices once he declares himself the "messiah" of Israel and the world.
What better way for the man of sin to assert power over all nations in the midst of the terrible trumpets that are hitting the earth. He will seize absolute control and this is why he chooses to declare himself “god” at this time because it is the perfect time to do so. The world will be begging for a savior and the fake "synagogue of Satan" Jews will embrace him as the “messiah”. The Mother of harlots and abominations will also declare him "god" and the savior of the world leading all those whom failed to come out of commercial, organized denominations to take the mark and worship this beast.
2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
These are the same seven angels of the churches.
3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
Vengeance is Mine, I will repay saith the Lord
4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.
5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
Note the censor in Heaven and the Prayers of the His Saints ascending to Heaven. These are the prayers of the saints to God due to the extreme persecution they are suffering at the hands of the dragon's governments. These are those whose names are blotted OUT of the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
The censor being filled with the fire of the alter and its casting to the earth represent (the first four Trumpets).
These passage demonstrates the prayers of those Saints slain by the beast’s world system coming to power in the first 3.5 years of the Tribulation. This also includes those slain for the testimony of Christ after the mid-point Rapture and ending of the Age of God’s Grace through faith without sight in Jesus Christ our Lord.
This is one part of God’s Restitution of ALL things.
These Trumpets represent the crumbling of creation due to the adverse effects of sin being amplified upon the earth by the before mentioned "Falling Away". This is the beginning of God’s redemption of His Creation. His predestined vengeance on all those who know not God and have not obeyed the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
As you will see a little later after the end of these Trumpets (At the last Trumpet) the Rapture of His remaining believers described as the Mystery of God being finished.
The door of the Final Ark is now Closing!
These cataclysmic Trumpet events seal the deal for the beast to take full charge of the New World Order and one world government of the Godless masses deceiving them all and declaring himself “as god” to save the population from the “climate change” destroying the earth. The deluded masses will beg for the beast’s total control, making his mark mandatory with the great financial reset to digital currency.
7. 1st Trumpet: The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
Why? see verse 5 above: Most likely a massive solar storm caused by man's atmospheric experiments allowing sunbursts to reach the earth.
* Correlate this to God's description of the mighty men whom destroy the earth.
Why? see verse 5 again above: Most likely a large asteroid which strikes the Pacific Ocean (the largest of earth's oceans).
Why? see verse 5 again above: Most likely a comet which strikes the Arctic region of earth by which most of the earth's fresh water flows from north to south. Wormwood is an old term used for cyanide which impregnates comets and is the major component in comet trails seen in the sky following them.
12. 4th Trumpet: And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
Most likely a major shift in the earth's polar axis and magnetic field due to the preceding Trumpet announcements. Speeding up the earth's rotation and thus reducing the duration of both day and night.
Logically one can only imagine the destructive power on nature this will have since these heavenly bodies regulate natural processes on earth such as weather patterns, storms, tides, flooding, magnetic poles, etc.. As the day gets closer the natural physical principles God established for His Creation become increasingly unstable as the earth groans and travails for its redemption from the curse of sin.
Amos 5: 18 Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light.
ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE 3 WOES:
13. And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!
These woes are declared to the unbelieving world as WARNINGS that the door to the final Ark is about to shut. The Rapture of the remnant of true believers is about to occur. When this evacuation occurs then the Holy Spirit will also be removed from the earth. Without the Restrainer of Satan poured out over the earth, Satan and his fallen angels are unleashed upon the wicked and there is NOTHING to stop or even hinder them at this time as the described in the next trumpet announcements below:
IT WILL BE HORRIFIC BEYOND ANY OF THE WILDEST IMAGINATIONS OF THE WORLD. The lost world living in this matrix of the unreal are totally controlled by Satan and given over to their vain delusion.
There can be no coexistence on earth for the Holy Spirit of God and the fallen angels of Satan. This is more evidence that "leading captivity captive" refers to satan's "third part of the stars of Heaven" fallen at the Ascension of Christ.
God's Holy Spirit is the restrainer and when He was poured out over all flesh our Lord led captivity captive chaining Satan's fallen angels in the bottomless pit until the end days.
In the next chapter we will see that the 5th TRUMPET is the first WOE: DEATH AND HELL correlates to the bottomless pit and the scorpions lead by Abaddon.
The First Woe is the first BEAST: This is contained in the 4th seal or the PALE HORSE.
Remember Revelation is a storyboard comprised of multiple parenthetical verses, passages and chapters which continually cross-reference themselves back and forth.
This is the appearance of the first beast and the reason of the WOE:
Rev 13:  The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
The beast that comes out of the pit is a man whom the spirit of Abaddon enters into just as the devil entered into Judas whom betrayed our Lord when He came the first time to redeem us.
