THE SEVEN SEALS IN REVELATION

Good to have you back ... Remember, it is a good idea to read along with the End Times study in the Bible so you will KNOW the TRUTH. To find out what happens next, we must go to the Book of Revelation and see how it compares with the Olivet Discourse. The Olivet Discourse is what we just looked into on the previous page. It really should match up well, with the Olivet Discourse because Jesus was the one who predicted the Olivet Discourse 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 unto Him
, to shew unto His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His Angel unto his servant John ...

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

As we read the words that are shared in the book of Revelation, keep in mind that this is a vision that John (One of Jesus' Apostles) had about two thousand years ago (About 90 A.D.) on Patmos Island while being imprisoned there by the Romans.

In the Book of Revelation, John was given the ability to look into the future, in a vision that he received and what he saw, he described in his own words and compared it to things of his day and his past. So he uses symbols, of sorts.

When you read of these things that he saw in his vision, try and imagine yourself back in his time period and see if you can figure out what he is describing, based on that which is in modern day.


Most of the symbols are Spiritual in nature and some can be discerned by knowing the Bible, so we will be doing a lil symbol searching too.

We will begin at Revelation, Chapter 6, known as the Seven Seals in Revelation.

 

THE SEVEN SEALS OF REVELATION

MANY HAVE READ THE SEVEN SEALS IN REVELATION BUT KNOW NOT THE DEPTHS OF THE SEVEN SEALS IN REVELATION WARNING AND HOW THESE SEVEN SEALS IN REVELATION PLAY A PART IN THE END TIMES.
 

1st SEAL

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.

Let us look at the symbols used in John's 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.

Rev. 19:11
And I saw Heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon Him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make 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 this entity will be done in the name of PEACE.

Daniel 9:27
And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (7 years) and in the midst of the week (Middle of the 7 years - 3 1/2 years) 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.

They say this because John uses symbols and a white horse represents PEACE yet the rider has a bow (weapon) which suggests that he attempts to establish PEACE by war.

This would make it a false peace.

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 let's keep an open mind.


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

Revelation 19:15
And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

Revelation 19:21
And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

 
MAYBE THIS IS WHY JESUS WARNED US TO BEWARE OF FALSE CHRISTS ...

ALWAYS ASK YOURSELF QUESTIONS AND SEEK THE WHOLE TRUTH IN GOD'S WORD ...

Point is that when you are doing research such as this, one should enter with no preset ideas, keep and 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 indicates that it is a leader of a country or a group of people. So it is someone that 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, symbols 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.

NOW ... REMEMBER THAT JESUS IS THE AUTHOR OF BOTH THE END TIMES PROPHECY IN THE OLIVET DISCOURSE AND THE BOOK OF REVELATION WHICH IS IN TRUTH THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST. SO OUR INTERPRETATION HAS TO MATCH WHAT JESUS SAID IN THE OLIVET DISCOURSE.

This interpretation matches very well with the first thing mentioned by Jesus in the Olivet Discourse, (False christ) which we discussed on the previous page of this study.

Matthew 24:5
For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

BUT ... I read the word MANY when Jesus said Many will come in my name.

This makes one lift the brow when suggesting it is ONE entity such as Antichrist.

BUT, He could have been answering ALL three questions originally asked before He gave the Olivet Discourse 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 and 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 Discourse?

Let us continue looking into the Seals of the book of Revelation ...
 

2nd SEAL

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 swor
d.

The symbol of the red horse obviously means war.
You do not need to be a rocket scientist to figure that one huh?

This matches up perfectly again with the next thing that Jesus mentioned would occur in the Olivet Discourse which we discussed on the previous page of this study.

Matthew 24:6
And ye shall hear of  WARS and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

So we have a second match ...
Let us continue looking into the Seals of the book of Revelation ...
 

3rd SEAL

Revelation 6:5-6
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.

WOW ... The Black horse symbolizes Famine just as Jesus predicted would occur next in the Olivet Discourse which we discussed on the previous page of this study.

Matthew 24:7
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be FAMINES.

Let us continue looking into the Seals of the book of Revelation ... 

 

4th SEAL

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.

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 disease (pestilence) and from beasts of the Earth. Many suggest that since there will be such a famine, that wild beasts will feed on humans.

Many are killed. Some are killed with "death" ... This is what Jesus predicted next in the Olivet Discourse when He said "pestilence" would thrive which we discussed on the previous page of this study.

Matthew 24:7
And pestilences ...

Let us continue looking into the Seals of the book of Revelation ...
 

5th SEAL

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 fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were
, should be fulfilled.

This is a VERY important message. 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 very well with the next thing mentioned by Jesus in the Olivet Discourse (Christians killed) which we discussed on the previous page of this study.

Matthew 24:9-14
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. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another" And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

Let us continue looking into the Seals of the book of Revelation ...
 

6th SEAL

Revelation 6:12-17
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?

This matches almost word for word with the next thing Jesus mentioned would occur in the
Olivet Discourse, (Great Tribulation) which we discussed on the
previous page of this study.

Matthew 24:29-30
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: 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.

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

Because of the matchups ... We now know that everything that has occurred thus far in the Olivet discourse ... 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 Discourse AND in the Book of Revelation is a Rapture ...
