What scene in heaven was presented to the prophet as the seventh trumpet was about to sound?


"And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in His temple the ark of His testament:
and there were lightnings and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail!' Rev. 11:19.
NOTES - This forcibly calls attention to the closing work of Christ in the second apartment, or
most holy place, of the sanctuary in heaven, which began in 1844. See readings referred to in preceding
note. The reference to the ark of God's testament is a forcible reminder also of that which is to be the
standard in the judgment-the law of God, or Ten Commandments. See Eccl. 12:13,14; Rom. 2:12,13;
James 2:8-12.
From its dosing words-the reference to "great hail' - the seventh trumpet evidently embraces the
seven last plagues (see Rev. 16:17,18); and from its opening words-"the kingdoms of this world are
become the kingdoms of our Lord"-it marks the setting up of God's everlasting kingdom.
