'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. ' (Rev 10:7) Hello there, I read Revelation 10:7 this morning, where it says that 'the mystery of God should be finished'. The previous verse (v.6), tells us that the time for repentance, at that time, is now passed: with the words, 'there should be time no longer'; no more calls for repentance would now be made. The mystery of God is to be finished in the days spoken of by the seventh angel. The, 'mystery of God', refers to the gospel of the Kingdom, spoken by 'His servants the prophets', which is deferred during this present time, due to Israel's lack of repentance. 'The mysteries of the kingdom' were spoken by our Lord Himself, in the form of parables, weren't they? The meanings of which was made known to the disciples privately (Matt.13:11; Luke 8:10).' ... it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, ... ' These 'mysteries' have their fulfilment in, 'the day of the Lord', which is the subject of the book of Revelation. The mystery concerning Christ's rejection is solved at the sounding of the seventh trumpet. The mystery of Israel's blindness (Rom. 11:25) will be finished when the trumpet sounds, for when 'He shall send Jesus Christ' (Acts 3:19,20), the times of restoration shall begin, and all Israel shall be saved. In a study book that I have on the book of Revelation, it is pointed out (quote) * that Israel's feast of trumpets in the seventh month, the trumpet of the Jubilee with its liberty and re-entry into the forfeited inheritance, is consummated in the sounding of this seventh trumpet. The mystery of the sudden change from mortality to immortality without the necessity of death and resurrection will be solved when this trumpet sounds. This together with the resurrection, takes place at the last trump. When this is brought to pass the prophecy of Isaiah 25:8 is fulfilled, ... 'He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of His people shall He take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.' ... which in its turn will take place when the veil that is spread over all nations shall be taken away, the rebuke of God's people be taken away from off all the earth, and the Lord of hosts shall reign in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and before His ancients gloriously (Isa. 25:6-8; 24:23). The proclamation of Christ as King is the solution of the mystery of God, its delay the reason for the chequered history of the world, its attainment one great step toward the goal of the purpose of the ages.
