Passage Summary

After the seventh angel blew his trumpet, multiple voices proclaimed the acquisition of the world’s kingdom into that of God and His Son (11:15). The twenty-four elders prostrated themselves and thanked God for doing so (11:16–17), detailing what had taken and would take place (11:18). In response, the heavenly temple opened, showing the ark as accompanied by various phenomena, confirming that what was announced would indeed take place  (11:19).

 A Parting Thought

Though judgment has its purpose in dealing with those who spurn their Maker, it will also clear the way for God’s eternal kingdom on earth, free from evil, in which we live out our salvation to its full. Give thanks to Him whose power shall do just this!
