6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
31 And the flax and the barley were smitten; for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was in bloom. 32 But the wheat and the spelt were not smitten; for they ripen late.--
This is the very place where the judgments of the Revelation of Yehoshua HaMashiach begin, the place of the judgment of hail. That is, the place where the preparatory judgments, the introductory judgments have already been enacted and the testing of the heart, the proving of the heart of human beings in all the earth now commences.
For as Pharaoh’s heart was proven to be wickedly and insanely in rebellion against his Creator by the hail judgment, so also it is written, “God will send strong delusion on them that they might believe a lie who received not the love of the truth,” 2 Thess. 2:11.
The chastisements of truth already being in the world, and human beings not desiring repentance and not desiring to receive the love of the truth, their hearts will be proven by a 1/3 measure of the hard judgment to come. That is to say, the flax and barely will be destroyed. The witnesses of Israel's Redeemer will announce that the early produce of Humanity’s efforts have been lost due to the judgments of G-d in the earth.
If human beings desired to repent they would then repent. But, like Pharaoh, they will prove their rebellion when they do not then repent. This is the age that now faces us. Therefore the judgment of the locusts will come.
