Revelation, the Book of - The Rejoicing of Heaven and the Revelation of the Lamb, Bringing Judgment and the Advent of the Bride, the Holy City (Revelation 19:1-22:5 )...
XII. Revelation 5:1 depicts the delegation of the divine authority to the risen Lord by introducing a sequence of events reminiscent of Daniel 7:1 . ...
The events portrayed here are highly symbolic, but are not a historical myth. The description of the judgments initiated by the first six seals would no doubt tend to overwhelm John's audience, so he interrupted the sequence leading to the seventh seal to remind us that the people of God need not despair, for, as the “bond-servants of God” (Revelation 7:3 NAS), they have the promise of heaven. ...
Revelation 8:1-5 gives us the seventh seal and again the traditional signs of the very end of human history and the coming of the Lord, but the prophet is not yet ready to describe the Lord's return. ...
Just as the interlude between the sixth and seventh seals reminded us that the people of God are safe from the eternally destructive effects of God's wrath, so also between the sixth and seventh trumpets we are reminded of God's protective hand on His people (Revelation 10:1-11:14 ). ...
With the seventh trumpet (and third woe) the end of history has come, the time “for the dead to be judged” and the saints to be rewarded (Revelation 11:18 NAS). The coming of the reign of God (and Christ), as well as the day of judgment, are past events ( Revelation 11:17-18 ). As the enraged dragon now seeks to Vent his wrath upon the woman, she is nonetheless nourished and protected for “1,260 days” (Revelation 12:6 ), for a “time, times, and half a time” (Revelation 12:14 )

Augustine - ...
Augustine was deeply affected at the close of this visit; and when Pontinius had retired, giving Vent to his feelings he addressed Alipius in a most animated strain: "How is this? What shall we do? Ignorant people come, and seize upon heaven; and we, with our learning, (senseless wretches that we are!) behold we are immersed in flesh and blood: Are we ashamed to follow them? Yet is it not a still greater shame, not even to be able to follow them?" Full of remorse and contrition Augustine left the house and retired to a secret part of the garden, followed by his friend, who seemed on this occasion to be a partaker of his grief only because he saw him grieved in spirit. Those early divines generally used the language of Scripture, the fertile invention of controversial writers, not having as yet displayed itself, except on the divine nature of Jesus Christ, and subsidiary terms and learned distinctions not being then required by any great differences of opinion. Augustine had thus in a great degree new moulded the science of theology, and had combined with it as an essential part of divine truth, that the fate of mankind was determined by the divine decree independently of their own efforts and conduct, and that they were thus divided into the elect and reprobate, it became necessary, in order to preserve consistency, to introduce into his system a limitation with respect to baptism, and to prevent the opinions concerning it from interfering with those which flowed from the doctrine of predestination. ...
Many were the theological labours to which he was invited by the most eminent of his contemporaries; and hastily as some of his lucubrations were executed, it is not surprising that among two hundred and seventy-two treatises on different subjects, some are of inferior value and unworthy of the fame which he had acquired in the church. 430, in the seventy-sixth year of his age; having been harassed at the close of life by seeing his country invaded by the Vandals, and the city of which he was the bishop besieged
Reformation - At this time an alteration in the established forms of worship was first Ventured upon at Wittemberg, by abolishing the celebration of private masses, and by giving the cup as well as the bread to the laity in the Lord's supper. This council was summoned by a bull issued out on the second of June 1536, to meet at Mantua the following year: but several obstacles prevented its meeting; one of the most material of which was, that Frederic duke of Mantua had no inclination to receive at once so many guests, some of them very turbulent, into the place of his residence. After the meeting of the general council in Mantua was thus prevented, many schemes of accommodation were proposed both by the emperor and the Protestants; but, by the artifices of the church of Rome, all of them came to nothing. But the conference produced no other effect than a mutual agreement of the contending parties to refer their matters to a general council, or, if the meeting of such a council should be prevented, to the next German diet. The elector of Saxony and landgrave of Hesse, who were the chief supporters of the Protestant cause, upon this, took proper measures to prevent their being surprised and overwhelmed by a superior force; but, before the horrors of war commenced, the great reformer Luther died in peace at Ayselben, the place of his nativity, in 1546. ...
It was supposed that this would bring on an engagement, which would probably have been advantageous to the cause of the reformed; but this was prevented chiefly by the perfidy of Maurice, duke of Saxony, who invaded the dominions of his uncle. To this he consented, relying on the promise of Charles for obtaining forgiveness, and being restored to liberty; but, notwithstanding these expectations, he was unjustly detained prisoner, by a scandalous violation of the most solemn convention. ...
This project of Charles was formed partly with a design to Vent his resentment against the pope, and partly to answer other political purposes. The assembly of the diet promised by Charles was prevented by various accidents; however, it met at Augsburg, in 1555, where it was opened by Ferdinand in the name of the emperor, and terminated those deplorable calamities which had so long desolated the empire. Thus was the reformation established in many parts of the German empire, where it continues to this day; nor have the efforts of the popish powers at any time been able to suppress it or even to prevent its gaining ground. ...
The following year another event gave the finishing stroke to its propagation and success. He permitted the Protestant doctors to preach publicly the sentiments of Luther, but did not Venture to change the established government and discipline of the church
