How is the ‘House of Jacob is Replenished from the East’? 

“Therefore Thou hast forsaken Thy people, the house of Jacob because they are replenished from the east [‘filled with Eastern ways, N.K.J.V.].” Isaiah 2:6, K.J.V.

“Prophets are subject to prophets” and “no prophecy is of any private interpretation.” (1 Cor. 14: 32; 2 Pet. 1: 20). Thus, following in the line of prophets and their thread of prophecy, E. G. White explains in today’s language what John expressed in prophetic language: “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.” Rev. 16: 13, 14.

G. White,Maranatha, p. 190.

The Fourth of the Seven Trumpets: What the ‘smiting of the third part of the sun, moon, and stars’ mean

     And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.” Revelation 8: 12, K.J.V.

      “The sun, moon, and stars have been interpreted to represent the great luminaries of the Western Roman government—its emperors, senators, and consuls. With the extinction of Western Rome in A.D. 476, the last of the emperors ceased to reign. Later its senate and consulship came to an end.” Elucidating on the seven trumpets, specifically the fourth, Uriah Smith, in his book Daniel and the Revelation, quotes at least three historians–Gibbon, Keith, and Elliott, whose individual works share the same interpretation of the trumpets.
