REVELATION: Vision 2. The Enthroned Son of Man.

Recommended Posts

4. The Pale Horse –   Terror.  

 

`Come & see,...behold, a pale horse & the name of him who sat on it was Death,...And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, & by the beasts of the earth.`(Rev. 6: 7 & 8)

 

This fourth confederacy will be the most terrifying force the world has ever seen. It will

use the sword, cause famine, bring plagues & the beasts of the earth to kill a quarter of

the world`s population -  billions of people. The delusion here is siding with Death, not life.

 

This confederacy is, I believe, the terrible force of Islam. When they receive their Messiah like leader then he will bring them together and form the most formable force the world has ever seen.

 

`Behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue, (other confederations) with its feet.` (Dan. 7: 7) 

 

 

When the Lord releases these powerful spirits (the 4 horsemen) to form a Global Government, then it is the time of judgement upon mankind. We see the predominant confederacies even now, coming together to form a global government. People who do not want to belong to this evil beastly system, but trust God, will be martyred.

5. Martyrs –   Under the Altar.

 

 `He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God  & for the testimony which they held.`(Rev. 6: 9)

 

These martyrs are `under the altar,` referring to the ultimate protection of God .Man may kill the body but God protects the soul. They are given a `white robe,` which is righteousness in Christ Jesus, & then they have to wait for all those who would still be martyred.

 

These are those who believe in God and do not take the mark of the beast. This is at the mid-point of the tribulation when the anti-Christ is given full authority and power for 42 months.

6. The Great Earthquake –   Shaking Heaven & Earth.

 `there was a great earthquake; & the sun became black...the moon like blood....stars ... fell... sky receded. Kings,..great men...rich men..commanders,..mighty men, every slave,...free man hid...`(Rev. 6: 12 – 15)
 

The final cataclysmic judgements shake the heavens & earth to such an extent that even great leaders & mighty men are hiding, fearful of God`s wrath being poured out.

`Fall on us & hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne & from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come & who is able to stand?`(Rev. 6: 16 & 17)

 

God has said the He will only once shake the heavens and the earth once more, and that is at the Lord`s coming in power and great glory with His angelic army.

` Him who speaks from heaven, whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also the heaven.` (Heb.12: 26)

` Multitude, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the Day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. The sun and moon will grow dark, and the stars will diminish their brightness. The Lord also will roar from Zion, (heaven) and utter His voice from Jerusalem; the heavens and earth will shake, but the Lord will be a shelter for His people, and the strength of the children of Israel.`(Joel 3: 14 - 16)

`I looked when he opened the 6th seal, and behold, there was a Great Earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the moon became like blood. And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place.` (Rev. 6: 12 - 14)

7. The Seventh Seal –   Silence in Heaven.

 

Judgement is completed, Satan is dealt with & Christ is King over all the nations of earth.

 

`The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord & of His Christ,

  & He shall reign forever & ever!` (Rev. 11: 15)

 

SUMMARY

 

The 7 Seals Preview, of the Scroll mark three key points in the tribulation period -

 

                                     Beginning, Middle & End.

 

This helps us to place all the other details that are to come in chronological order.
