THE SEVEN SEALS IN REVELATION- Lesson #2

THE SEVEN SEALS IN REVELATION PROPHECY ASK WHAT
ARE THE SEVEN SEALS OF REVELATION?

WHEN DO THE SEVEN SEALS OF REVELATION OCCUR?

WHERE DO THE SEVEN
SEALS OF REVELATION TAKE PLACE?

WHO DO THE SEVEN SEALS OF REVELATION
AFFECT?

WHY DO THE SEVEN SEALS OF REVELATION OCCUR?

WHAT IS THE SEVEN SEALS  OF REVELATION MESSAGE and how do the SEVEN SEALS  AFFECT you?

Many have read the SEVEN SEALS of Revelation but know not  the SEVEN SEALS  of Revelation
warning and how these SEVEN SEALS play a part in the END TIMES
LET US SEEK WITHIN THE BIBLE AND FIND TRUTH..

To find out what happens  next let’s go to the Book of Revelations and see how it compares to the Olivet  Disclosure, because Jesus was the one who predicted the Olivet disclosure and
was the spiritual author of that which is written in the book of Revelation (
The revelation of Jesus Christ)

Revelation 1:1 The  revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show to his servants the things that must soon take  place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John,

John was merely the pen to share Revelation of Jesus with us.

Most of the symbols are spiritual in nature and some can be  discern by knowing the bible, so we will be doing a lil symbol searching to. We  will begin at Revelation chapter  6 known as the seals.

1ST SEAL

REVELATION 6:2

And I looked, and behold, a white horse! And its rider had a bow, and a crown was given to him, and he came out conquering, and to conquer.

Let us look at the symbol used in Johns vision.

White Horse

Some believe that this is antichrist, A world
leader that will reign terror on earth for 3 and a half years, during the End
Times because Jesus Himself will come  in on a white horse when He returns
at Armageddon. And they believe that antichrist is trying to  CON-vince
the nations that he is the long awaited Messiah.

Here is the scripture that reveals that Jesus
will return on a White Horse.

REVELATION 19:11 Then I saw heaven opened, and
behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and
in righteousness he judges and makes war.

Some believe that the white horse symbolizes the false peace covenant that is spoken of in the book of Daniel. That the conquering of the entity will be done in the name of Peace.

Daniel 9:27 And he shall make a strong covenant
with many for one week,
  and for half of the week he shall put an end to
sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who
makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolate .”

BOW

This weapon suggests  that the intent is war
or defense. NOTE: that there are no arrows mentioned.

Could this be because the power is only for show
or does this simply mean the author assumed we would associate bow with arrows
and just did not add that he had arrows?

It would seem it would be a shield if it were
defense though, but lets keep an open mind.

Something interesting to note that when Jesus returns, He has no bow, He has a sword. The Sword is the Word of God.

Revelation 19:15 From his mouth comes a sharp
sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod
of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the
Almighty.

Revelation 19:21 And the rest were slain by the
sword that came from the mouth of him who was sitting on the horse, and all the
birds were gorged with their flesh.

Maybe this is why Jesus warned us to beware of
false christ.

Brethren always ask yourself questions and seek
the whole truth in God’s Word..

Point is when you are doing research such as
this, one should enter with no preset ideas. Keep an open mind and do not
dismiss anything because it does sit well with your theory and watch for any
clues that you may get from God’s Word.

CROWN

Note that the crown was given unto him. this
certainly indicate that it is a leader of a country or a group of people. So it
is someone who is given leadership of a nation or group.

CONQUERING AND TO CONQUER

The intent of this leader is to conquer other
countries.

So using all scripture and prophecy.

The first Seal represents a chosen leader
(antichrist) who presents himself as being righteous and sets forth to conquer
using Peace as a disguise for his purpose.

NOTE: Now remember that Jesus is the author of both the End Times Prophecy in the Olivet
Disclosure  and the Book of Revelation which is in truth the Revelations  of Jesus Christ. So our interpretation has to match what Jesus said in the  Olivet Disclosure .

This interpretation matches well with the first thing mentioned by Jesus in the Olivet Disclosure. (false christ ) which we just discussed.

Matthew 24:5 For many will come in my name,
saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray.

Look at the word many when Jesus said many will come in my name. This makes one lift the brow when asking it is one entity such as antichrist.

But, He may have been answering all three questions originally asked before He gave the Olivet
Disclosure about various points of time at once and this is what is confusing.

Remember.. When you are  doing research such as this, one should enter with no preset ideas, keep an  open mind and do not dismiss anything because it does sit well with your theory
and watch for any clues that you may get from God’s Word.

But.. Do the rest of the  Seals match up ( in order) with the rest of the Olivet Disclosure?

Let us look at the  second seal.

 

2ND  SEAL

Revelation 6:4 And out came another horse, bright
red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people
should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.

The symbol of the RED HORSE obviously means war.

This matches up perfectly again with the next
thing that Jesus mentioned would occur in the Olivet Disclosure.

Matthew 24:6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See
that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet.

 So we have a second match let’s go to the
3rd seal

3RD  SEAL

Revelation 6:5-6 When he opened the third
seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” And I looked, and behold,
a black horse! And its rider had a pair of scales in his hand.
And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the
midst of the four living creatures, saying, “A quart
 of wheat for a denarius,  and three quarts of
barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”

The Black Horse symbolizes Famine just as Jesus predicted would occur next in the Olivet
Disclosure.

 Matthew 24:7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom
against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.

4TH SEAL

Revelation 6:8 And I looked, and behold, a pale
horse! And its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were
given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine
and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth.

We are given even more  horrifying clues  as to what else will occur at this time. 1/4 of the
people on earth will die by war, famine, resulting in diseases ( pestilence)
and from beast of the Earth.

Many suggest that since  there will be such a famine, that wild beast will feed on humans.

Many are killed. Some  are killed with death… This is what Jesus predicted next in the Olivet
Disclosure when He said pestilence will thrive.

Matthew 24:7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom
against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various
places.

5TH SEAL

Revelation 6:9 -11 When he opened the fifth seal,
I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God
and for the witness they had borne.
10 They cried out with a loud voice, “O Sovereign
Lord, holy and true, how long before you will judge and avenge our blood on
those who dwell on the earth?”
11 Then they were each given a white robe and
told to rest a little longer, until the number
of their fellow servants  and their brothers should be complete, who were to be killed as they
were
should be fulfilled.

This is a very important  passage.

Those who had died for  Christ ( Christians) received white robes and were told to wait until
other Christians that were to be killed for the name of Jesus arrived.

These Christians are  just now being brought to Heaven.

This again matches well  with the next thing mentioned by Jesus in the Olivet Disclosure ( Christians  killed)

Matthew 24:9-14 Then they will deliver you up to
tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my
name’s sake.
10 And then many will fall
away
  and betray one another and hate one another. 11 And many false prophets
will arise and lead many astray.
12 And because lawlessness
will be increased, the love of many will grow cold.
13 But the one who endures
to the end will be saved.
14 And this gospel of the
kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all
nations, and then the end will come.

Let us continue to:

6TH SEAL

Revelation 6:12-17 When he opened the sixth seal,
I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as
sackcloth, the full moon became like blood,
13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the
fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale.
14 The sky vanished like a scroll that is being rolled up, and every
mountain and island was removed from its place.
15 Then the kings of the earth and the great ones
and the generals and the rich and the powerful, and everyone, slave
 and free, hid themselves in the caves and among
the rocks of the mountains,
16 calling to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us
and hide us from the face of him who is seated on the throne, and from the
wrath of the Lamb,
17 for the great day of their wrath has come, and
who can stand?”

This matches word for  word with the next thing Jesus mention would occur in the Olivet
Disclosure, ( Great Tribulation).

Matthew 24: 29-30

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days
the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars
will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
30 Then will appear in
heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will
mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with
power and great glory.

So  let us summarize what we have so far. There will come a leader who will hide  his true goals behind the mask of peace yet he will use power as the way he  proceeds. The result will be wars, famine, disease and death until even 1/4 of  the population of the world is killed. This will result in Christians being  killed and Great Tribulation.

As we can clearly see,  there is a very good match with the Olivet Disclosure in Matthew 24 and
the Seven Seals in Revelation, Chapter 6. In fact, they are virtually  the same thing.  

Jesus who foretold of  the End Times in the Olivet Disclosure  also being the one who  foretold  the End Times in the Book of Revelations, has given us  a  way to find out what happens next when the  Olivet Disclosure ends  and the Book of Revelation continues.

Because of the match ups  we now know that everything that has occurred thus far in the  Olivet
disclosure happened in the first six seals of Revelation.

This is a major timing  factor.

Why is it a major timing  factor?

Because the next thing  mentioned in the Olivet Disclosure and in the Book of Revelation is the
Rapture.

We had just read of the events that will occur
up to and including the sixth Seal.

NEXT

We will begin at that point. Immediately  after the 6th  Seal,There is an event that occurs  which we
will look into. We will pick up where we left off in the Book of Revelation,
chapter 7, we will find 144,000 people been sealed with the seal of God.

Revelation 7:4-8

And I heard the number of the sealed, 144,000, sealed from every
tribe of the sons of Israel:

12,000
from the tribe of Judah were sealed,

12,000 from the tribe of
Reuben,

12,000 from the tribe of  Gad,

12,000  from the tribe of Asher,

12,000 from the tribe of  Naphtali,

12,000 from the tribe of  Manasseh,

12,000  from the tribe of Simeon,

12,000 from the tribe of  Levi,

12,000 from the tribe of  Issachar,

12,000  from the tribe of Zebulun,

12,000 from the tribe of  Joseph,

12,000 from the tribe of  Benjamin were sealed.

The Bible
is clear that these 144,ooo are all Jewish Christian  males.

Revelation
14:1-5 Then I looked, and behold, on Mount Zion stood the Lamb, and with him
144,000 who had
his name and his
Father’s name written on their
foreheads
. And I heard a voice from
heaven like the roar of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder. The
voice I heard was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps,
and they
were singing a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures
and before the elders.
No one could learn that song except
the 144,000
who had been redeemed
from the earth
. It is these who
have not defiled themselves with women
, for they are
virgins
. It is these who follow the Lamb wherever he goes. These have been
redeemed from mankind as
first fruits for God and the
Lamb,
and in
their mouth no lie was found, for they are blameless.

 This
seal will protect them from the events that will be occurring on the earth.

 After
this, a large number of people, of all races, will suddenly  show up in
heaven. When asked, an angel said that these people are Christians  which
were taken out of the
Great Tribulation that was
occurring on the Earth.

Revelation
7: 9-17
After this I looked, and behold, a great
multitude that no one could number, from every nation
, from all
tribes and peoples and languages,
standing
before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes
, with
palm branches in their hands,
10 and crying out with a loud
voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”
11 And all
the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four
living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped
God,
12 saying,
“Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and
might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”

13 Then one
of the elders addressed me, saying,
“Who are
these
, clothed in white robes, and from
where have they
come?” 14 I said to
him, “Sir, you know.” And he said to me,
“These are
the ones coming out of the great tribulation.
They have
washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

15 “Therefore
they are before the throne of God,

and serve him day and
night in his temple;

and he who sits on the
throne will shelter them with his presence.

16 They shall
hunger no more, neither thirst anymore;

the sun shall not strike
them,

nor any scorching heat.

17 For the
Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd,

and he will guide them
to springs of living water,

and God will wipe away
every tear from their eyes.”

Remember
in the
  Olivet Disclosure it spoke of the Great
Tribulation .

Then goes
to the 7TH SEAL.
This tell us that this group of
Christians  that are taken from the earth (Raptured) are taken in between
the 6TH and the 7TH  Seal.

As you
recall, the 6TH Seal spoke of the sun and the moon getting dark and the stars
falling, as it did in the   Olivet Disclosure, so let us return to
the  Olivet Disclosure to see if there is mention of a Christian Rapture
or Christians being taken from the Earth to Heaven.

In
the   Olivet Disclosure it speaks of the sun and the moon getting
dark and the stars falling, so we will look at verse 29 and start from there.

Matthew
24:29
Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be
darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from
heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

It said
that there was a sign in the heavens and that mankind would mourn and see Jesus
coming in the clouds, which is very similar to the 6TH Seal in the Book of
Revelation.

Revelation
6:15-17 Then the kings of the earth and the great ones and the generals and the
rich and the powerful, and everyone, slave
  and free,
hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains,
16 calling to
the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who is
seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb,
17 for the
great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?”

Immediately
after this, we see in the Olivet Disclosure  that Jesus has His angels
gather his elect ( Christians) from the four corners of the Earth.

Matthew
24:31
And he will send out his angels
with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds,
from one end of heaven to the other.

It goes
on to say that two will be in the field and that one will be taken and the
other left behind.

This event
known as the Christian Rapture.

It is when God gathers  many
of those that chose to believe in Jesus and takes them to Heaven.

So we now know that the Rapture  takes place between the 6TH and the 7TH Seal. At the same time as the Great  tribulation begins.

Luke 21:
25-28 And there will be
signs in sun and moon and stars, and on
the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea
and the waves,
26 people fainting with fear and with
foreboding of what is coming on the world. For the
powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27 And then they will see the Son of
Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
28 Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise
your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”

As God has always done . Taking  His chosen servants on the same day as disaster.

Luke 17:
26-33
Just as it was in the days of
Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man.
27 They were eating and drinking and marrying and being given in
marriage,
until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them
all.
28 Likewise, just as it was in the days of Lot—they were eating and
drinking, buying and selling, planting and building,
29 but on the
day
when Lot went out from Sodom,
fire and sulfur rained from heaven and destroyed them all—
30 so will it be on the day when the Son of Man is revealed. 31 On that day, let the one who is on the housetop, with his goods in
the house, not come down to take them away, and likewise let the one who is in
the field not turn back.
32 Remember
Lot’s wife.
33 Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses
his life will keep it.

Keep in mind that these  Christians are from all Nations. This means they were Gentiles.

But are all Christians taken up  in this Rapture?

I know that most Christians are  eager to get home and most probably  will be Rapture.

However there is much evidence that  proves that there are still Christians on Earth after
the Rapture.

But why would God leave his  beloved on Earth to suffer?

Did He not leave His beloved Son  to endure suffering?

Let me ask you a question.. Have  you heard of the story of the sinking luxury liner called the
“Titanic” a sit was slowly sinking there were only enough lifeboats  for half the passengers so they began to load the children and women first.  There was chaos and cowardly men tired to sneak on the lifeboats with the women  and children. However there were also men that stayed behind making sure they  save as many as they could before the ship disappeared into the dark cold  waters. These brave men sacrificed their lives to save those souls KNOWING they
might die and many did. They are heroes in the mind and hearts of all who ponders this story.

Perhaps the Rapture, is the same  way. The Earth is being destroyed and antichrist will be killing Christians and  anyone who does not convert to believing he is God. There will be much
confusion in the minds and hearts of those who did not accept Jesus up to this  point.

The problem is  if all  Christians was to be Raptured, there would be nobody to share the TRUTH.

 There are those who are  chosen and /or choose  to stay and try to reach and teach more souls
during the 3 and a half years that are left before God brings in the  Millennium.. maybe God has chosen these men and woman to do so.

SOUNDS
STRANGE?

Then I
guess this sounds strange too..

Did you
notice what Jesus said when describing His return?

Luke 17:
30-33

30 so will it be on the day when the Son of Man is revealed. 31 On that day, let the one who is on the housetop, with his goods in
the house, not come down to take them away, and likewise let the one who is in
the field not turn back.
32 Remember  Lot’s wife. 33 Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses  his life will keep it.

Mark 8:35 For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever
loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it.

Now keep in mind there is a  Rapture and there are Christians Raptured so if you are a Christian  you  very well may be going up in the Rapture.

However it may be that God chose  some to stay and save more souls. wouldn’t it be best to be willing to do so if  it is DESTINY? As compared to appearing as the men trying to sneak on the
lifeboats with the weaker vessels that were called home at that time?

PONDER ON
THIS TRUTH…

Matthew
20:15-16
Am I not allowed to do what I
choose with what belongs to me? Or do you begrudge my generosity?’
  16 So the last will be first, and the first last.”

Let us continue our journey  turn with me to  Revelation Chapter 8.

The 7TH
SEAL

 Revelation
8:1-5 When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for
about half an hour.
Then I saw the seven angels
who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them.
And
another angel came and stood at the altar with a golden censer, and he was
given much incense to offer with the prayers of all the saints on the golden
altar before the throne,
and the smoke of the
incense, with the prayers of the saints, rose before God from the hand of the
angel.
Then the
angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and threw it on
the earth, and there were peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning,
and an earthquake.

This ends
the 7 SEALS and Please prepare for the SEVEN TRUMPETS.
