The Seven Seals
The First Seal
Jesus Christ by his sinless life and willingness to die for humanity to fulfill the will of God the Father, was resurrected to spirit and the glory that he had had before giving up his God-hood to become flesh was restored to him. He then ascended to God the Father to be accepted “for us” as our atoning sacrifice and to be made a High Priest to intercede for us with God the Father and to reconcile us to the Father.
Being found worthy to receive eternal life and everlasting glory, Jesus Christ was also found worthy to unseal the secret things of God the Father.
Revelation 6:1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
The first seal is a white horse with its rider and in the grand overall scheme of things it pictures Satan the Adversary who presents himself as an angel of light to deceive the nations.
Specifically however, this refers to the end time and refers to the climax of Satan’s activities and of his deceptions through human agents. This seal refers to the abomination spoken of by Daniel [Dan 12] and by Paul.
2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away [a falling away from zeal for God in the brotherhood as has now happened] first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition [who is the final miracle working abomination];
2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God [he will be exalted by humanity as an ultimate moral authority on the earth] sitteth in the temple of God [he will falsely present himself as the head of the body of true believers, the spiritual temple] shewing himself that he is God.
This man will exalt himself above God as humanity’s ultimate moral authority.
2:5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 2:6 And now ye know what [you know that Christ is holding Satan back until the appointed time] withholdeth that he [the final great deceiver] might be revealed in his time.
2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work [even in Paul’s day men exalted other men above the Word of God]: only he who now letteth [restrains, withholds] will let [will restrain Satan from setting up of this final great deceiver until the appointed time], until he [that is, until the restraints are removed] be taken out of the way
The daily intervention of Jesus Christ will restrain the setting up of this person until the appointed time when the restraints will be removed.
2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed [From the time that he is set up doing miracles in the Vatican, he will have only 1,335 days until he is destroyed by Jesus Christ (Dan 12).], whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders [doing many miracles], 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness [deceiving men into rebellion against the Word of God] in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
This miracle working deceiver will be of the earth, earthy, carnal, worldly; and will deceive most of humanity by doing amazing miracles to exalt himself above God as humanity’s ultimate moral authority.
This earthy, worldly, carnal, miracle working deceiver will appear to be a man of peace and as harmless as a lamb [trying to counterfeit the true Lamb of God]; but he will speak the words of Satan the dragon, teaching all peoples to follow him instead of living by every Word of God. He will teach that HIS word is to be obeyed, because he alone can properly understand and interpret the Word of God.
This same wickedness is being done in today’s Spiritual Ekklesia today, however this man will do miracles which will deceive most of the world into accepting him as their moral authority.
This man will do great miracles, probably in the form of trying to imitate Christ; he will call for the nations to join a new order in Europe and will be so exalted by the people that ten nations will come together in a New Federal Europe on his advice.
Revelation 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth [being a man of flesh]; and he had two horns [presenting himself as a meek harmless lamb] like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
The white horse represents the deceptive nature of this person who tries to appear as a shining white paragon of righteousness while he deceives men into following his own ways contrary to and in rebellion against the Word of God.
He will conquer the minds and hearts of people through his impressive miracles and smooth words.
Revelation 6:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
This final deceiver conquers the people through deceiving them into regarding him as a great moral authority transcending all religions
The Second Seal
The second seal reveals the terrible wars that will come upon the earth during the final 3 1/2 year period.
6:3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast [a second spirit being by the throne of God spoke] say, Come and see. 6:4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
The second seal is war and conflict on the earth. This begins with the occupation of Jerusalem and great bloodshed during the fall of Judea, and some two years later will come in its fullness to the rest of the world when Europe attacks the nations of Asia.
The Third Seal
The third seal is about the terrible famine that will come because of wars, bad weather etc.
Revelation 6:5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. 6:6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
The third seal is about great famine in America and the Anglo Saxon nations while the New Europe prospers abundantly. Starving people in America and the Anglo Saxon nations will riot and fight for food and survival, and vermin will multiply exponentially, eating up the existing food stocks and carrying disease.
The Fourth Seal
The great dying
Revelation 6:7 The fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast [the fourth spirit being before God’s throne spoke] say, Come and see. 6:8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
The fourth seal is about the spread of war, famine and disease which will kill over 1.5 billion people.
The Fifth Seal
The dead in Christ who lived during the past 6,000 years are judged righteous by the Ultimate Judge, but they are told that others will still join them until the Appointed Time arrives.
Revelation 6:9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls [pneuma; spirits] of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 6:11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
Here it is revealed that the inanimate spirits of the dead in Christ are kept in heaven under the altar of God in the Heavenly Temple of God the Father. I did not write this; it is Holy Scripture. Yes, the inanimate spirits of the dead in Christ are kept in heaven; where they figuratively cry out for their resurrection and God’s judgment on those who rebel against the Word of God and who persecute those zealous to learn and to keep the whole Word and Will of God.
Now the scriptures tell us that no conscious man has as yet ascended into heaven except Christ. This is because no flesh can pass across the vast gulf between the earth and heaven. Even Jesus while in the flesh, could not cross that gulf and visit heaven.
No flesh can travel to heaven from the earth. However SPIRIT can cross the distance between the earth and heaven, as evidenced by the angels on many occasions. Therefore it was AFTER Jesus Christ was changed to spirit at his resurrection that he was able to ascend up to heaven. No flesh can cross the vast space between heaven and earth, however God can remove the spirit in human beings from their dead bodies and as inanimate spirits they are kept safe and totally secure under the heavenly altar, until the day they are returned to the earth to be placed in new bodies made of spirit in the sight of all people as a demonstration of the power and the glory of God.
Right now these disembodied spirits are inanimate and cannot function just as a disk which is not inserted into a machine cannot function; these human spirits must be plugged into new bodies to become animate and functional.
Right now the spirits of the dead in Christ are being stored in the most secure place in the universe, beneath the very altar of Almighty God in heaven; and it is their very presence that cries out to God [not any actual voice] to remember God’s faithful and correct the wickedness of humanity to bring mankind to sincere repentance.
The fifth seal is also a warning of a great martyrdom AFTER the son of perdition and the new Roman Empire and its ruler are set up, and occupy Judea and during the collapse of Anglo Saxon power.
When the Laodicean brethren see their false traditions destroyed by reality, the pride and self-will of very many will be crushed; then they will remember that they were warned and they will quickly and sincerely repent turning to a passionate zeal for the Eternal, with many giving up their lives in a great martyrdom; and during the tribulation, there will be a great persecution of all those who did not initially respond to God’s warnings and later sincerely repented from their lack of zeal for God when they are trapped in the furnace of correction.
Revelation 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which [to persecute those who sincerely repent in great tribulation and turn to a zeal to live by every Word of God] keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
The Sixth Seal
The sixth seal is the appearance of Jesus Christ in his majestic glory for all people to see. After the man of sin is set up in the Vatican, after the New Europe and its leader are set up, after the defeat of Judah and the collapse of the Israelite nations, after a period of great suffering in the Israelite nations, Jesus Christ will appear in his glory in the heavens heralding the onset of the seventh seal which is the seven trumpets.
Sometime in the second year, Messiah the Christ will appear in his glory shining so brightly that he will greatly outshine the sun so that the sun would appear to be blotted out from the sky. Then all people will shake for fear because he has come to pour out his wrath on a wicked and rebellious humanity.
At this time Messiah instructs his angels to seal a specific number of the sincerely repentant with the gift of the Holy Spirit before the Trumpet Plagues are poured out on the earth.
When Christ appears in the sky in his glory many will know that I and God’s two servants have spoken the truth and 144,000, 12,000 from each of the tribes of Israel except Dan will be converted and sealed with God’s Holy Spirit.
At the presence of Christ in his glory the earth shall tremble and shake [great earthquakes probably producing volcanic activity] and the atmospheric dust will make the moon appear red.
Consider that in the night we see the stars and during the day the brightness of the sun hides the stars and they seem to vanish from our sight. Even so, the brightness of Christ shining in his glory, will overwhelm the sun itself which will disappear from sight in the presence of the Glorious One; while on the opposite side of the earth the moon will appear red!
6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 6:13 And the stars [many astral objects like meteors and boulders will fall from space doing much damage] of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll [all other lights will be overwhelmed by the incredible brightness of the light of our Redeemer] when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
When they see this the wicked will fear, but those that God is calling and working with, will have any self-justifying pride that is left totally crushed as they see the glory of the Holy One!
6:15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 6:16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
