Bible Prophecy The Seven Seals


The end times means different things to people, we need the truth. To get the truth we will go to The Lord Jesus Christ and the Book of Matthew for the seven events that will end this flesh age.

Matthew 24:1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to [him] for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
Matthew 24:2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.


Jerusalem shall be destroyed at the coming of Jesus Christ. No, Hes not talking about 70 AD because part of the wall stands today.

Matthew 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what [shall be] the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

Lock on to this, what shall be the sign of thy coming and of the end of the world. Lets see what The Lord Jesus Christ said, will you believe Him.



The First Seal
Deception




Matthew 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
Matthew 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.


This is the first event, religious deception. Religion is one of Satans tools he uses to get people to worship him as antichrist. Antichrist in the Greek means instead of Christ. Satan comes first and all the people will worship him thinking he is Christ, because they have not read our Father's Word. This deception is the first seal, lets go to the Book of Revelation and the first seal.

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.
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 rider on the white horse is Satan instead of Christ, its Antichrist. This is symbolic of the rise of Babylon, or confusion, the Antichrist system. The seal is not the action of the event, the seal sets in motion the process that brings the event to past. The seals, trumps and vials are the same events just from different views of time. The seal is broken, then the trump sounds and the vial is poured out. Deception is the first seal. Lets go back to Matthew 24.



The Second Seal
Wars




Matthew 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.

War is the second event, but not a world war. Satan wants people to worship him, these wars will be to bring about one world government. Lets go to Revelation 6 for the second seal.

Revelation 6:3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
Revelation 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 rider on the red horse is war, these wars are to bring about one world govermment and to keep the nations in line. The second seal is war, lets pick back up in Matthew 24.



The Third Seal
Famine And Troubles




Matthew 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

The first of verse 7 is still the second seal, the third event or seal starts with famines. Famines, pestilences, earthquakes and troubles are the third seal. There will be some problems with food but the famine of the end time will be for The WORD of God

Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
Amos 8:12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find [it].


Are you hearing The Word of God, are has the famine already came? At this time, the last 10 years have had more earthquakes than all of history. The third event is troubles, as in famines, earthquakes etc. Now lets go back to Revelation 6.

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.
Revelation 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 rider on the black horse is all the troubles, famines and earthquakes etc., coming on the earth. The penny is symbolic of a days pay buying only a loaf of bread, so we see this will also mean trouble in the world economy. Lets go back to Matthew 24.



The Fourth Seal
Spiritual Death




Matthew 24:8 All these [are] the beginning of sorrows.

The fourth event is the spiritual death of people because of the first three seals. Lets go back to Revelation 6.

Revelation 6:7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
Revelation 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 death, spiritual death, because of the sword, hunger, and beasts of the earth. This is all spiritual, or symbolic, of the first three seals.
Our Lord Jesus The Christ has told us the first four events or seals in Matthew 24:1-8 and we see this lines up with Revelation 6:1-8. Lets recap before we continue to the last three events or seals that will end this flesh age




First Seal
Deception

Second Seal
War

Third Seal
Famine and Troubles

Fourth Seal
Death



The Fifth Seal
Martyrdom




We are now at the fifth event or fifth seal, lets pick up in the Book of Matthew.

Matthew 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

This is all the ones slain through all history, all the way back to Abel, for there faith in Jesus Christ.

Matthew 24:10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
Matthew 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
Matthew 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.


Remember the first seal, Deception, here comes many false prophets. Did it say great preachers shall rise? No, it said many false prophets shall rise. Look at all the great religious preachers, prophets, of today. My thoughts are that this is today, we are in the fifth seal.

Matthew 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

The fifth event includes the ones slain all the way back to Abel and the ones that will be slain at the end. The fifth event is martyrdom.

Revelation 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:

The dead in Christ are not in the grave but with the Father. Again this is the ones slain all the way back to Abel.

Revelation 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?

Not only can the dead talk, but they want revenge too.

Revelation 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 ones that are to be killed at the end are the two witnesses. The two witnesses will be killed 3 days before the last event or seventh seal in Jerusalem. The fifth event or seal is martyrdom and more deception by false prophets. Now on to the sixth seal.



The Sixth Seal
Antichrist




Revelation 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;

This might seem like the return of Christ, but its not. This is Satan coming as Antichrist. Antichrist in the Greek means instead of Christ. A fake Jesus coming first.

Revelation 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.

The stars of heaven are Satan and the fallen angels coming to earth. This is the sixth event or seal. That means Satan appears in the sixth seal, sixth trump, and sixth vial. Thats 666. Untimely figs are figs harvested out of season. Thats early or unripe figs, figs taken out of season by a mighty wind. Know anybody thats ready to go early, theres a mighty wind coming. Wind is a spirit or angel, thats Satan coming as fake Jesus. Lets go back to Matthew 24


Matthew 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.

We are in the sixth event, Satan and the fallen angels are on earth. Satan claims to be Christ. The Elect are delivered up to Satan and the Holy Spirit will speak through them. This is how the gospel will be preached in all the world.

Matthew 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

The abomination of desolation is Satan standing in Jerusalem claiming to be Christ. Lets go to 2Thessalonians for a second witness.

2Thessalonians 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;
2Thessalonians 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.


A warning, let no man deceive you by any means, Satan comes FIRST. The temple of God is always in Jerusalem, the falling away is the people worshiping Satan, thinking that he is Christ.

Matthew 24:16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
Matthew 24:17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
Matthew 24:18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.


Its about over, Jerusalem will be turned to sand.

Matthew 24:19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

The ones that worshipped Satan as Christ, early figs, are pregnanted with his mark in there brain. They did not know he was Satan, because they did not study our Father's word.

Matthew 24:20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

You don't harvest in Winter, out of season, early figs. What is this flight? Makes me think of Rapture, first to go, last to know. Its Satan.

Matthew 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.
Matthew 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 time is shortened to five months.

Matthew 24:23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here [is] Christ, or there; believe [it] not.

Will you listen to Jesus Christ or will you listen to man? We are in the sixth seal and nobody has flew away yet.

Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

People are not ready for this, the miracles that Satan and the fallen angels do will have the world worshiping Satan. They will think he is Christ.

Matthew 24:25 Behold, I have told you before.
Matthew 24:26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, [he is] in the secret chambers; believe [it] not.


Behold, if they say Jesus is here to rapture you away or if they say its a secret rapture, believe it not. We are going to pick up back in the Book of Revelation.



The Seventh Seal
Jesus Christ Returns




Revelation 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.

With Satan on earth and the world thinking he is Christ, the return of Jesus Christ is the last thing they will expect.

Revelation 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;

At this point, the world starts waking up to the fact that they have been worshipping Satan.

Revelation 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:

Talk about people feeling sick! They would not study the Bible, they listen to man.

Revelation 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

They have been worshipping the false christ and now the true Christ has returned.

Matthew 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.

Have you ever seen lighting? This is how Jesus The Christ comes, in an instant.

Matthew 24:28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

This is the change of bodies, you will have no use for the flesh body.

Matthew 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:

Sounds like Revelation 6:12, that was the false christ coming. Now comes the true Christ.

Matthew 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.

Why would they mourn over the coming of Jesus Christ? Only because they had been worshipping the false christ.

Matthew 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

This is how it will be, Christ will send his angels to gather His elect. Nobody flies away, Christ is coming to earth. Remember, Jesus was asked how it would be at the end of the world. Jesus Christ told you in Matthew 24 and again in Revelation 6. Friend who do you believe, Jesus or man?
