Revelation 8:5





5 And [kai] the angel [aggelos] took [lambano] the censer, [libanotos] and [kai] filled [gemizo] it [autos] with [ek] fire [pur] of the altar, [thusiasterion] and [kai] cast [ballo] it into [eis] the earth: [ge] and [kai] there were [ginomai] voices, [phone] and [kai] thunderings, [bronte] and [kai] lightnings, [astrape] and [kai] an earthquake. [seismos]   KJV-Interlinear



5 And the angel took the censer; and he filled it with the fire of the altar and threw it to the earth; and there followed peals of thunder and sounds and flashes of lightning and an earthquake.     NASB



The angel who is standing at the golden alter of incense, where the prayers of believers are symbolically offered as a smooth and acceptable aroma to God the Father, now takes his fire pan (censer), and scoops up some of the hot and burning coals and ashes from the alter, and hurls them down to the earth.


This action, symbolizes Gods acceptance of the prayers offered, and now acts on them.


While we generally pray most of our lives, with seemingly no results, note that when the time is right, and this is Gods timing, then action occurs swiftly and without further hesitation.


When these prayers are accumulated from throughout the ages, then the end of evils reign, will come to a swift conclusion.The prayers of believers, can and will become the means by which the judgments of God will be initiated and executed.


And this whole process demonstrates that point.The prayers of believers, are the action which will begin Gods judgment.


John is still in heaven within his vision.In heaven there has been a deathly silence for a long period of time, until this action of the angel, hurling the hot coals, the substance of the accepted prayers, down to the earth.


With this action, Gods judgment begins, and with it, the silence ends and the sound of voices, thundering, and lightning are heard throughout heaven.  Gods power and acts are often depicted with and associated with these sounds.


The voices are symbolic of an advancing army, heard but unseen.The thunder and lightning, are symbolic of the overhead sounds of an approaching mighty storm.The earthquake is the most fearsome sound of all, in that it comes from below and all around, one cannot know from where it is coming, and the whole ground shakes as though it were out of control, with a sound, that seems to come from everywhere.


Thus, the sounds of an overwhelming attack are what are in view here.  And from it, there is nowhere one can run, nowhere that one can hide, nowhere that one can escape.Little does the world know, what is coming.
