I have three questions:
1) What is the scriptural basis for the assertion that the 7th Trumpet of the book of Revelation contains the 7 Vial judgments? I am unable to find a satisfactory scriptural support for this assertion. I can understand it when we say the 7th Seal comprises the 7 Trumpets, but I don't see any scriptures that support the view that the Seventh Trumpet contains the 7 Vials. If you have any scripture that supports this view, could you share it with me?
2) If the 7th Trumpet sounds at the end of the Tribulation (i.e. on the final day of the great Tribulation) as Revelation 11:15-19 appears to indicate, it cannot contain the 7 Vials because all 7 Vials are not poured out on the final day of the Tribulation. My understanding is that only the 7th Vial is poured out on the final day of the Tribulation, which means Vials #1-6 have to be poured out before the final day of the great Tribulation. If this is correct, it means the outpouring of Vials 1-6 occurs BEFORE the sounding of the 7th Trumpet on the last day of the Tribulation. Thus, on the final day of the Tribulation just before Jesus Christ returns to earth, the 7th Trumpet sounds and the 7th Vial is poured out. Following the sounding of the 7th Trumpet on the final day of the Tribulation, rejoicing breaks out in heaven with voices saying "The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and His Christ......"
If my understanding is correct, it means the Trumpets and Vials are not sequential since the pouring out of Vials #1-6 will be occurring before the sounding of the 7th Trumpet. What do you think? Do let me know if I am missing anything here.
3) What is the correct interpretation of Revelation 10:7: " 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."
First, what exactly is meant by "the mystery of God" in this context? Secondly, does this verse mean that the mystery of God will be finished at the very moment the 7th Trumpet BEGINS to sound or during the sounding?
