Abe,Your letter touches on what I am coming to understand as well, that the sign of the Son of Man, and thus the sixth seal are nearly here among us. The thief is coming, and no one sees his coming.I wrote a brief comment on this theory, and obviously there are many more facts that will be needed to confirm this at the following link.By no means is this a complete theory on my part, but what you postulate above would give credence to it even more so. Others here are suggesting that sounds are being associated with this heavenly battle, and we are involved in this battle for souls, as per revelation 12:7-11. We are in a sense fighting a battle that we are unaware we are fighting, through the testing and turmoil the church is undergoing as we speak.I am "seeing" confirmations for this everywhere right now, too many to write down, and some too spiritual for logic to comprehend.For we walk by faith, and not by sight. 2 Cor.5:7God bless. As you say, "Keep looking up"44 Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. (Matthew 24:44)David H.
