- "When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the fourth living creature saying, 'Come and see.' And I looked and behold, A Pale Horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the Earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the Earth." - Revelation 6:7-8.
There are four specific things to watch out for in this uprising "New World Order Era:" War, Starvation, Systemic Murder, and Nature [itself]. From the perspective of a Religious Historian - this seal could represent one of three specific things - which only time will more fully reveal. While, from the perspective of A Believer - I have yet to gain a definitive answer from Yahweh.
Although I am tempted to label it a Third World War upon the continent of North America between The United States Government [with additional European forces] and The Various Interdependent States [supported by their allies in Asia], there are several reasons - which make me hesitant to do so. Nor, is that merely because I live here... The Truth is "The Truth," whether for Good or for Evil.... It's just that, something is still clouding my understanding and judgment upon this one.
The Fifth Seal: "The Great Religious Persecution"
- "When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the alter the souls of those who had been slain for the word of Yahweh and for the testimony which they held. And they cried with a loud voice, saying, 'How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the Earth?' And A White Robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed." - Revelation 6:9-11.
- "Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and hate one another." - Mathew 24: 9-10.
Had many of them [honestly] known, few would have supported his gargantuan: Spiritual, Political, and Economic efforts. Nor, does he waste any time in plunging the Earth back into "The Dark Ages" of heightened religious and spiritual persecution! All of the world's great religions are equal prey to his worldwide efforts at ongoing human persecution. He wields his power with precision against: Jews, Christians, Muslims, and every other religion alike... and he offends many for one calendar year [360 days precisely].
However, at the end of that time, the Ten Nations [or kings] - which gave him his political authority - will grow to regret, and then fully resent, that increasingly abominable authority. In a fit of rage, and angered retribution, they will use their massive military stockpiles to wipe him and his unholy church off the very face of the Earth! Afterward, they shall weep greatly - for what they have done - since, Babylon The Great's Economic Value was immense to the overall economies of Earth.
The Sixth Seal: "Signs On Earth And In The Heavens"
- "I looked when He opened the sixth sea, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth 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." - Revelation 6:12-14.
- "Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And 'This Gospel Of The Kingdom' Will Be Preached In All Of The World As A Witness To All Of The Nations..." - Mathew 24:11-14.
Consequently, the Earth shall grow increasingly polarized between: "True Believers," and those who will [now openly] serve Satan. The Gospel will no longer be hindered by the worldwide organizational efforts at concealing Yahweh's Factual Existence and God will permanently seal His remaining [or remnant] people....
With a final and full outpouring of The Holy Spirit to empower them, great miracles are performed by these strengthened believers. For, "The Latter Rain" has fallen as prophesied - so very long ago.... And yet, mankind also produces wondrous counterfeit miracles through the applications of publicly unknown science. The masses of humanity are confounded and confused - thus, following the latter! All Humanity awaits the Seventh Seal....
*** Note: Since The Seventh Seal includes: The Seven Trumpets [Heralding The Messiah's Return] and The Seven Last Plagues [Punishing The Wicked], it must be given in another - future - installment.
