Bible Question and Answer
Question: Hey Brandon, thank you for all you do and love the site. I was just wondering your opinion on something. Dejavu, do you think it is possible when you experience it that it could have been a passing or moment in the first earth age you might have had ? I have done it a few times in my life and it can be a little weird. Thoughts?
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Amy, you are very welcome and thank you for the question.
No, I do not believe it is a moment from The First Earth Age. I have experienced déjà vu many times in my life as well and I recall some of those experiences. In my opinion there is no way déjà vu could have been a moment in The First Earth Age as modern things (the entire room setting) were around including the people I knew during the time of my déjà vu experience. So I certainly believe déjà vu is in our time now, not any past time in history. It most likely has something to do with the brain itself.
If déjà vu were from The First Earth Age, God would essentially be leaking that information to you and that is one of the reasons He destroyed the Giants in the time of Noah. They were sharing information about The First Earth Age with the inhabitants of the earth.
It certainly is an interesting experience, one no one has an answer for at this point in time.
Thank you for reaching out Amy!
Question: Hello Brandon, I enjoy your forum so much and it is so educational for me. My question is about the seals and trumpets. The seals are not in order, but the trumps are. Do you have a study on here about the order they are and explaining them. I’ve been searching cannot find any. Thank you.
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Faithful, you are welcome and we thank our Father for that. We also enjoy and thank you for your questions!
We do not have a dedicated study on the Seals, Trumpets or Vials at this time. The closest we have to getting that far into the weeds is our study, “The Timeline of the Tribulation“.
With that said, I do not believe the order of the Seals are mixed up. “God is not the author of confusion, but of peace,” (1 Corinthians 14:33). I do not feel God would label the Seals numerically from 1 through 7, when He really meant some other order.
To me, it is not logical to believe the Trumpets are in order, but the Seals are not. That would cause confusion for the student of the Bible and God does not confuse, rather He provides clarity. Further, both the Seals, Trumpets and Vials are all numbered 1 through 7 in an easily understandable sequence of numbers.
I feel we need to take our time with our Father’s Word when we study. For example, during the 6th Seal which can be found in Revelation 6:12-17 you will read of events that transpire during the 6th Seal all the way through the 7th Seal and 7th Trumpet for that matter. The events being described in verses 12-17 do not only pertain to the 6th Seal is my point here.
Turn your Bible with me to,
15 “And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;”
16 “And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:”
What has just been described is well documented in Revelation as the point in time when Jesus Christ returns to destroy Satan’s reign on earth. This moment in time occurs at the very end of the Tribulation of Satan which is far past the time marker for the 7th Seal. Jesus Christ is the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain for us so our sins could be forgiven and He is the Lamb that will unleash His Wrath upon the world for their failure to adhere to His Word.
You can read more about Christ’s appearance in Revelation 19 and Matthew 24.
