In one of the lectures, brother Jim(?) Cowie brought Isaiah 21 into the mix as part of the path that the rainbowed angel would take. This struck me as incorrect.
I thought that Isaiah 21 to be fulfilled already as is Isaiah 22 and Isaiah 23 with Isaiah 20 setting the context. Isaiah was walking around naked for 3 years as an object lesson. That would hardly be applicable today or in the future.
Am I off base?

Just to point out two reasons why it could be a type of the future, and therefore why Jim might have been right to quote it.
(1) I noticed in v9, Babylon is fallen is fallen is picked up in Rev 14:8.
(2) Other prophecies of the downfall of Babylon, are a shadow of things to come, for example Isa 44:26-45:4.
These by no means prove Jim's point, just a few observations.

If someone can explain to me the "traditional" view of the rainbowed angel and how it is reached from Scripture, I'd be grateful. I see all of Rev 10-11 taking place at the time of the sixth trumpet/second woe.
I tried to read it from the on-line version of Eureka, but Dr. Thomas' writing requires a paper copy that I can highlight and markup in order to discern what he is trying to communicate. It would also require many hours of peace as it is a tough read which isn't going to happen with a 1 year old in the house.
There is a Johnathan Bowen lecture on the bibletalks4u website, but the lecture is cut short 5 minutes into the one hour lecture.
That is where I ran into brother Cowie's lecture. I'm going to finiish out the series, but it just started setting off alarm bells.
