Sixth, Pause, then Seventh and Last

Something I forgot to mention in my sermon on Revelation 14 last night.

I noted the pattern in the book of 6 trumpets or seals or bowls, then an interlude that shows attention and care for God's people, and then the 7th concluding thing, usually the consummation and Second Coming of Christ itself.

What I forgot to say is that this pattern is embedded in the creation week itself.
6 days of creation, then an interlude where God speaks to Adam and Eve with commands and blessings, then the 7th concluding day of rest.
