The Tribulation Period Begins, The Seals


Revelation 6:1-17

We must have it clear in our minds that the Church is at this time in Heaven. Those that think the Church is going through the tribulation period are only right about one thing. The Laodicean church will go through the tribulation. Jesus said He would spew this church out. This is the apostate church of our modern era. This is the church that has decided that the word of God just does not fit into the modern world. They will go on as usual unless some repent and open that door and let Jesus back in.

Rev 3:20  Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

When we understand the covenants as literal and unconditional then we can understand that Israel has a future that is different and distinct from the Church.

Deu 30:1  And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath driven thee,
Deu 30:2  And shalt return unto the LORD thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;
Deu 30:3  That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and [will return and gather thee from all the nations], whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee.

Their time again will be the Millennial reign of Christ after the tribulation period. The Tribulation period is the time when this nation must repent and welcome Jesus as the Messiah. The major purpose of this time period is to discipline this nation.

Jer 30:7  Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; [but he shall be saved out of it].

Eze 20:37  And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and [I will bring you into the bond of the covenant]:
Eze 20:38  And I will purge out from among you the rebels, and them that transgress against me: I will bring them forth out of the country where they sojourn, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel: and [ye shall know that I am the LORD].

The time for the seventieth week of Daniel will now unfold.

Dan 9:24  Seventy weeks are determined upon [thy people] and upon [thy holy city], to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, [and to anoint the most Holy].

Notice the seventy weeks are determined upon the people of Daniel (thy people the Jews)

The Church will be in Heaven at this time:

Rom 5:8  But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Rom 5:9  Much more then, being now justified by his blood, [we shall be saved from wrath through him].

1Th 5:9  [For God hath not appointed us to wrath], but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

Rev 3:10  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, [I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation], which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Jesus Christ detailed these events in Matthew chapters 24 and 25:

Mat 24:21  For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
Mat 24:22  And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

The “elect” here is the children of Israel.

We also have Mark 13:5-23
And Luke 21:8-23

In Jeremiah we see it is time to break the yoke of Satan off the neck of Israel:

Jer 30:8  For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that [I will break his yoke from off thy neck], and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him:

God gives all the other nations direction at this time:

Isa 34:1  Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it.
Isa 34:2  For the indignation of the LORD is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies: [he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter].

It is foolish to think that this world will go on to be some type of utopia to live in. This world is headed toward destruction just as God has written in His book. If God pulled back His hand right now the world would self-destruct in a short period of time. The tribulation period of the Bible will happen after the Church Age and before the Kingdom Age. These are the “seven missing years of prophesy”.

Daniel tells us the signing of the covenant with the Antichrist:

Dan 9:27  And [he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week]: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

These details begin in Chapter 6:

1.) What we will see is this age(The Church Age) ends in disaster.
2.) The end of this age(The Church Age) is not the end of the world.
3.) When this age(The Church Age) ends God takes up the children of Israel once again.

This will be a horrible time that has never been seen before on this Earth and will never be seen it again. When God takes out the Church He will also withdraw His hand from Earth and Satan will run rampant with the sinful human nature of those left behind. This will be a destructive combination.

The Bible never says that we are anything to brag about while we are in our human bodies. In fact it says we are worthless until we accept the Lord as our Savior. He says we are as filthy rags, as filthy as the contagious rags used to wrap the Leper.

There will be instant war. The Jew will realize their error and return to a Holy God. There is a growing remnant right now in the Holy land.

The coming Tribulation period will bring the inhabitants of this world to its knees. There are four series of seven events mentioned in this book. These first seals will give us a view of the changing politics of the Anti-Christ for the seven year period, in other words we will get to see the itinerary of Satan and our first view of God’s plan.

Let’s begin:

*****Rev 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.
Rev 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.

Notice it’s not one of the elders that is telling John to come and see but one one of the beast. The Church will witness these events from heaven. Those elders (the Church) are watching just as John is. John is the scribe of these events so he is brought to the front.

Also notice that word “thunder” (thunders and thundering s) it may reveal to us more than we know later in this great book.

A white horse represents someone coming from a victory. This is not Christ but the Anti-Christ that rides this horse. He is the counterfeit who will deceive the world at this time, including the children of Israel.

The Bible says:

Mat 24:5  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
Mat 24:6  And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

1.) Let’s not forget the Church is in Heaven.
2.) The Laodicean Church is still on Earth.
3.) It is at this time that the Anti-Christ will be revealed.

2Th 2:1  Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2Th 2:2  That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
2Th 2:3  Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and [that man of sin be revealed], the son of perdition; (The Apostate Church {Laodicean}) (Then the Anti-Christ)
2Th 2:4  Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
2Th 2:5  Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
2Th 2:6  And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
2Th 2:7  For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. (That He is the Holy Spirit)(The Rapture first)
2Th 2:8  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: (The Anti-Christ revealed)
2Th 2:9  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
2Th 2:10  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

(He had a bow but no arrows)

This rider (the Anti-Christ) will at first win all battles with politics. He will cause peace to happen with the threat of war.

The Greek word for “bow” as used in this verse is “toxon” . This is the only place this word is used in the Bible. To best describe this bow would be to say “it is like a ribbon used to tie in a babies hair”.

This man on this white horse will be the most deceptive man to have ever lived on this Earth!

Notice in Chapter 13:

Rev 13:1  And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
Rev 13:2  And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
Rev 13:3  And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
Rev 13:4  And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

Daniel said:

Dan 11:21  And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: [but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries].

He will confuse the Jew into believing he is the true Messiah and sign an agreement of peace in the Middle East. This will be seen as one of the greatest achievements in all history for we all know the continued turmoil in the Middle East and Palestine.

Dan 9:27  And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and [in the midst of the week] he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Dan 7:8  I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.

That peace will only last about three and a half years.

Psa 55:20  He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: he hath broken his covenant.
Psa 55:21  The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.

Again The Bible says:

1Th 5:3  For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

(The crown)

The Greek word “stephanos” is used here which this evil person will wear as a badge of royalty. To be a counterfeit of Christ he will at least have the appearance of being from royal blood.

The Lord Jesus wore a crown of thorns when He was on this Earth the first time.

Joh 19:5  Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!

The same Greek word for crown is used here but we can be sure this evil man will not have on his head a crown of thorns.

Our text:

*****Rev 6:3  And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
Rev 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.

About three and one half years later we see a change in this same rider but a different horse. The red horse denotes bloodshed. Open and bloody hostility breaks out among the nations.

Isa 57:20  But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.
Isa 57:21  There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.

We can notice also that this power to make war was given to him by God.

Rom 9:14  What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid.
Rom 9:15  For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.
Rom 9:16  So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.
Rom 9:17  For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.
Rom 9:18  Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth.
Rom 9:19  Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will?
Rom 9:20  Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?
Rom 9:21  Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?
Rom 9:22  What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:
Rom 9:23  And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,
Rom 9:24  Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?

These are people killing one another. Remember there is not one person of the Church age left on this planet at this time. We know evil just gets worse. (“only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. “)

2Ti 3:13  But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

We know that the apostate church has been transformed. (The Laodicean Church)

Note: All other religions are just the false church.

2Th 2:10  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
2Th 2:11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2Th 2:12  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

These lawless people will kill each other with no mercy.

(That sword)

The Greek word “machaira” is used here for sword. This same word can be used for a killing sword but also can mean war. It means war as it is used in our verse.

The Anti-Christ will be behind these wars but he still may have the appearance of innocence to most of the world. It was he to whom God gave the power.

The Bible says:

Mat 24:7  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
Mat 24:8  All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Our text:

*****Rev 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.
Rev 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.

What follows war? For many years when there have been great wars, after they ended the winning nations would help rebuild and resupply those nations. That will not happen during the tribulation period. Food, shelter, and any kind of help just will not be there. There will be no one growing food because of war and those that have a little it will be taken away from them. There will be some work but at such a wage that it will take a days pay to buy enough nourishing food for one or unnourishing food for three.

We can also see that the good stuff, the wine and oil will be put aside for the rich. Yes the rich will still be getting richer and the poor getting poorer.

Eze 14:21  For thus saith the Lord GOD; How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the noisome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast?
Eze 14:22  Yet, behold, therein shall be left a remnant that shall be brought forth, both sons and daughters: behold, they shall come forth unto you, and ye shall see their way and their doings: and ye shall be comforted concerning the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, even concerning all that I have brought upon it.

Black is the color of mourning. The prophet (Jer 14:2) says: “Because of the drought Judah mourneth, and the gates thereof languish; they are in deep mourning (black) for the land.” The balances used for weighing food are a symbol of scarcity and famine. “Bread by weight” always implies scarcity.

Lev 26:26  And when I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again [by weight]: and ye shall eat, and not be satisfied.

Eze 4:16  Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, behold, I will break the staff of bread in Jerusalem: and they shall eat bread [by weight], and with care; and they shall drink water [by measure], and with astonishment:
Eze 4:17  That they may want bread and water, and be astonied one with another, [and consume away] for their iniquity.

The prices named also signify the same. The measure was about a quart, and the penny about sixteen cents, which would make the wheat worth about $5 per bushel; or, if it be borne in mind that one dollar in that age would usually purchase as $5 now, the wheat would be about $25 per bushel in the modern currency. Oil and wine, though common foods, are entirely prohibited. An age of war, mourning, calamity and famine is certainly symbolized.

If we think back to the time of Joseph in Egypt we will remember Israel had a great deliverance but the Egyptian people got poorer and poorer giving up even the land they owned while Pharaoh and his rulers just got richer and richer. It happens in every war. There are many in our world today that began their riches during and after World Wars I and II.

Note Chapter 13: Rev 13:17  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Our text:

*****Rev 6:7  And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
Rev 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.

Behold a pale horse, and his name that sat on him(the Anti-Christ) was death. Again, for the fourth time John beholds a horse. It is still a time of war. The horse is now pale, the bloodless color of the dead. Upon him sits an indescribable figure, called by the name DEATH. Behind the dreaded destroyer follows Hell, the unseen world, swallowing up the dying mortals and hiding them from human vision. The means employed to destroy men are described. Death and Hell employ (1) the sword or war; (2) hunger, or famine; (3) death, or pestilence (4) the destruction caused by the wild beasts of forests and field.

We can see those that die go straight to Hell!

Jesus spoke of this Anti-Christ:

Joh 10:10  [The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy]: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Our text:

*****Rev 6:9  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:
Rev 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?
Rev 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 Bible says:

Mat 24:14  And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

And again:

Mat 10:21  And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.
Mat 10:22  And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
Mat 10:23  But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.

I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God. These are clearly Christians who had suffered martyrdom. They had died “for the word of God.” They were under the altar. Since the temple is a type of the church, the altar, the center of worship, points to the church and its worship. The brazen altar stood at the door of the tabernacle, and at the bottom of it all the blood of the offerings was poured. Their position probably points out that their own blood was poured out for Christ.

Lev 4:7  And the priest shall put some of the blood upon the horns of the altar of sweet incense before the LORD, which is in the tabernacle of the congregation; and [shall pour all the blood of the bullock at the bottom of the altar of the burnt offering, which is at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation].

Note this verse in Genesis:

Gen 4:10  And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.

God knows all things but He keeps a keen eye on His Saints!

And they cried with a loud voice. Their cry denotes that they had suffered long and severely, and they raise a cry for deliverance.

And white robes were given unto every one of them. The robes of justification and victory. They are assured that the day when “they will be avenged” will soon come, but that they must wait a little season. Others must be added to the number of the martyrs before the number is fulfilled. It is a time of persecution. The fifth seal is the seal of persecution. The fulfillment is to be sought in a war of extermination waged against these converted Jews.

There are those that believe we will have no memory of what happened when we get to Heaven. These souls knew exactly what had happened to them.

You know Jesus and Stephen ask God to forgive those that had slain them but at this time these saints of God are begging God for vengeance and He has said:

Isa 63:4  For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.

Rom 12:19  Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

We read from the Apostle Paul:

Rom 11:25  For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
Rom 11:26  And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
Rom 11:27  For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

These Jews have witnessed the Rapture of the Church they have realized their blindness and believed the Old Scriptures again.

Jer 31:31  Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
Jer 31:32  Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
Jer 31:33  But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

This is the Jewish covenant of Grace!

Our text:

*****Rev 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;
Rev 6:13  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.
Rev 6:14  And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

Now we see the time of Satan coming to an end. This “earthquake” has great meaning. The signal of the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to this Earth. The Second Coming:

At the end of the Tribulation period Christ will return “physically” to this Earth.

Zec 14:3  Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
Zec 14:4  And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

He is coming to render judgment on this Earth.

Zec 14:9  And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.

(Zec 14:9-21)

Mat 25:31  When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
Mat 25:32  And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

(Sun became black)

On March 20, 2010 in the city of Beijing, China there was a tremendous sandstorm. The “sky” became orange because the dust cloud was so thick.

On March 24, 2010 in the city of Lagos, Nigeria there was a yellow haze of dust across Nigeria, blotting out the sun and canceling airline flights. The setting sun gave off no more light than the moon.

On April 15, 2010 a volcanic eruption in Iceland put such a cloud of dust and ash in the air it shut down airline flights in Europe for a few days and may cost the European Economy “billions of dollars in loss revenue”.

When the Lord Jesus Christ returns to this Earth there will be an earthquake greater than any that have ever been seen. There will a tremendous dust cloud. The sun will become black. The mighty air power of this world will be useless. All navigation instruments will be useless and these examples of minor things on this Earth let’s us know how vulnerable we truly are to natural disasters.

Isa 29:6  Thou shalt be visited of the LORD of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.
Isa 29:7  And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel(Israel), even all that fight against her and her munition, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision.

(the stars of heaven)

This will probably mean meteors but we can be sure all those satellites used by all governments will be knocked out of the sky with them. Those armies surrounding Jerusalem will annihilate each other.

Isa 13:12  I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.
Isa 13:13  Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.

The Lion of the Tribe of Judah:

Joe 3:16  The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.

In a little while:

Hag 2:6  For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land;
Hag 2:7  And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.

Hag 2:22  And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother.

These things will be in place until God anoints His preachers to the children of Israel and to the world:

Rev 7:1  And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
Rev 7:2  And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
Rev 7:3  Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

Jesus said He was coming in this fashion:

Mat 24:27  For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Mat 24:28  For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
Mat 24:29  Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
Mat 24:30  And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

Prophesy will be fulfilled!

The world is now worshiping Mother Earth. The false religion of the green peace movement and other world leaders. They will pray to the Earth to help them against this Almighty God we know as Jehovah but He will still come and no false god can stop what will happen this day. “The Day Of The Lord”.

Psa 76:6  At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.
Psa 76:7  Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry?
Psa 76:8  Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still,
Psa 76:9  When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah.
*****Psa 76:10  Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.
Psa 76:11  Vow, and pay unto the LORD your God: let all that be round about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared.
Psa 76:12  He shall cut off the spirit of princes: he is terrible to the kings of the earth.

They will still refuse Him!

Mal 3:2  But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:

This day is surely coming and there is only one way to avoid it:

Mal 4:1  For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
Mal 4:2  But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

Those that are evil and desire this day or do not believe that God can get really mad and do what He said He would do are truly foolish!

Amo 5:18  Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light.
Amo 5:19  As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him.
Amo 5:20  Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?

Believe on Him and be in Heaven when this day comes.

Let’s pray!
