I probably should have expounded more on what I was trying to express.
What I was getting at was that the Seven Angels of Revelation 1-3, the Church Angels being the righteous one's of the churches (the elders as well as the faithful), may be the same Seven Angel's issuing forth the Trumpet judgments, as it is given to the saints to judge:
1Co 6:2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
1Co 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
In the context of Revelation, imo seven may not represent an actual number, so much as that it is signifying the "last", or the fulness, just as the Seventh day of creation contained the fulness of the previous six days.
Anyway, I was looking at the trumpet judgments and how that would relate to the saints judging the world and the angels, and I couldn't really tie-in any correlation to what the judgments were implying. I don't think they are literal, but representative.
One that always stumbles me is the 1/3 thing. The best I can tell is it represents 1/3 of man, namely the flesh part being smitten, or destroyed.
Revelation continues to be allusive. Although I think I understand bits and pieces, it is really seeing through a dark glass darkly!
