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 discerning of the times we live in is very important to every believer in the Christian faith to understand. This is for us to be able to see and warn people and prepare ourselves as well for the coming Tribulation and eventual Rapture of the Church of Christ. The book of Revelation is very clear on the events which will lead into the Kingdom Age of Christ with the first being the revealing of the 7 Seals. The beginning of the end (Tribulation period) begins with the revealing of the great mystery of God. Only the Lamb of God (Jesus) is the one justified and none corrupted to open the 7 Seals to end this Earth Age.

The 1st Seal opened in Revelation 6:1-2, states “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. 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 “white horse,” is symbolic of the Anti-Christ who while enter the world stage, who will present Himself as a peace keeper but will reveal Himself to be something much worse. The “bow,” represents that he will speak peace but plot war with the “crown,” representing His many conquered nations.

The 2nd Seal opened in Revelation 6:3-4 reads, “And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. 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 “red horse,” represents war and “power given unto Him,” means the Anti-Christ will be given authority to destroy many at this time.

The 3rd Seal opened in verse 6:5-6 reveals, “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. 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 “black horse,” here is famine and the balances are symbolic of little or no food being available to those in this part of the world, and the grave cost of each.

The 4th Seal in Revelations 6:7-8,”And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 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 “pale horse,” is revealed to be death, meaning all those who had been slain at this time are destined for Hell.

The 5th Seal in Revelation 6:9-11, “And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: 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? 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 5th Seal speaks of the Christians martyred for their Faith at this time. They will pray for judgement on the Lawless one (Anti-Christ), for His actions at this time, which will soon be carried out by God.

The 6th Seal in Revelation 6: 12-17, states “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; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 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; 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: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” Represents the first of many earthquakes upon the Earth, which will result in the sun being blotted out from the dust of the land followed by meteorite showers upon the the Earth, causing severe damage similar to that of Sodom and Gomorrah. After this time the restoration of Israel will begin as well as the tribulation Saints who gave their lives during this time, who will cry and thank Jesus for their salvation.

The 7th Seal in Revelation 8:1-6 reads, “And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. 2And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand. And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.”

This the 7th Seal represents the judgement of God, with the seven angels representing the presence of God, which will begin the 7 trumpet judgments. The Angels fill the Golden Censer (vessels made for burning incense) with the incense of the perfect virtue of Jesus Christ and His once and perfect sacrifice at the Cross. This will be offered up with the prayers of all those who believe and pray who God hears, which will ascend up before Jehovah and then cast to the Earth which will signify the judgement of God, within 3 years of the great tribulation. Shalom…
