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 worshiped God saying, Amen, blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honor, and power, and might be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
Given your scriptures (and a literal interpretation of them), hasn't it already been seven thousand years since creation?
And shouldn't the seventh seal be oppened (or be about to be oppened)?
And shouldn't God be dealing with (or raising up) a large body (and not just dealing with a handful of people) if this prophecy is to be fulfilled?
