The Prophecy of Revelation 7

Rev. 7:1-3
"After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree. 2Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea: 3"Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God."

The writer of Revelation, Apostle John (Rev. 1:1-3) saw in Revelation 4 angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the winds to prevent them from blowing on the earth. Based on the words of the other angel coming from the east, the winds that these angels are holding back have the power to actually harm the earth. But if there is a wind on each corner of the earth (yet the earth does not have corners as it is round) then there must be harmful wind on the four points of direction (N, S, E, W). Should these winds be realeased, it will mean harm for not just one country or area of the earth...but all over the world! Such a disaster has not occurred as yet, since that other angel commanded them to hold it.

Then what is this disaster? What is this harmful event that will effect...even you?

Without knowing when this will take place, how can we be sure of what this event is. Stay posted
to find out when this even will take place. I'll give you a hint: Verse 1 says, "After this..."
