Revelation 6:9 – 6:17

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 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 take the spirit in human beings who have His Holy Spirit, and keep them as inanimate spirit to be 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

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.

The fifth seal is 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.

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. 

At the presence of Christ in his glory the earth shall tremble and shake [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 full 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 [space objects in our solar system: 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 [the sky will disappear, all else 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?

  1. James you wrote , 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. We just trying to understand. Rev, 19:14 says And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. is this not the Sant’s already with there Sprit bodies

    I meant that the spirits of the faithful dead are kept in heaven and that the inanimate spirits of the faithful dead will be brought to the earth and put in new bodies on the earth; which is the actual mechanics of the resurrection. This will be a graphic demonstration of God’s power and blessings for his faithful for all the world to see.

    God could easily have made new spirit bodies in heaven and just plug the inanimate spirits into them in heaven; instead he is bringing these inanimate spirits to the earth and giving them new bodies on the earth to demonstrate the power and greatness of God to all humanity. This demonstration of God’s power will bring many of Israel [especially those in Jerusalem] to sincere repentance and they will be ready to receive Christ when he quickly returns after the Wedding in heaven.

    Speaking of the resurrection at Jerusalem it is written: Revelation 11:13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

    Then they will rise in the air to ascend to heaven for the marriage of the Lamb before God the Father (Rev 15), then they will return to the earth (Rev 19). This article explains these things and provides the scriptures.

  2. I still don’t see anywhere about where any spirits are returned to earth to be put in bodies.

    If the spirits of the godly dead are kept in heaven: The context here is in heaven at the throne of the Father Rev 5; 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:

    And the resurrection takes place on the earth: 1 Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

    Then Christ must be bringing the spirits of the godly dead with him to the earth in order to place those spirits in their new bodies on the earth and reanimate them, before taking them up to heaven for the marriage of the Lamb at the heavenly house of God the Father.

  3. There are many places in the Bible that the resurrections are talked about but the fifteenth chapter of Corinthians 1 is the main place to find the spiritual resurrection which takes place at the six thousand year mark and includes the 144.000 spoken of in the book of Revelation. They are the dead in Christ and a few people who are alive here on earth at the second coming of Christ. The thirty eighth chapter of Ezekiel is the main place to find the physical resurrection which takes place after the seven thousand year trial is complete and includes the general masses which haven’t had the chance to know God.

    My Friend, beginning tomorrow there will be extensive articles for the Feast of Tabernacles including Ez 37. I think you will find them fascinating and full of information which is not commonly taught.

    Please do visit the article on the 144,000 as well
