7:15 his temple. This scene is parenthetically inserted for John’s benefit between the events of the judgments of the sixth and seventh seals. It is apparently set at the end of the yet-to-come “great tribulation” (that is, the last half of the seven-year tribulation period). It does not look forward to the ultimate eternal age, when there will be no temple and there will be no night (Revelation 21:22; 22:5). Therefore, it must refer to the millennial temple of the thousand-year reign of Christ on earth (Ezekiel 43:1-7).
