Message to reader: The Fourth Seal

The Fourth Seal


Revelation 6:7: “And when he” [Christ] “had opened the fourth seal,” [Christ opened the fourth seal of the book that he received from the Most High, see Revelation 5:5, 7] “I” [John] “heard the voice of the fourth beast” [One of the four beast, see Revelation 4:6-7] “say, Come and see.” The vision of the Fourth Seal;

Revelation 6:8: “And I” [John] “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 vision of the Fourth Seal represents the power given to the Beast whose deadly wound was healed in Revelelation 13:3, and the False Prophet, see Revelation 13:11-12.



Message to reader: The Fourth Seal

The following scriptures are contained in The Fourth Seal. 








Vision Of The Woman, Child, And Dragon


Revelation 12:1: “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:”

Revelation 12:2: “And SHE” [The Woman] “being with child cried, travailing in birth, and PAINED TO BE DELIVERED.”

Revelation 12:3: “And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.”

Revelation 12:4: “And his" [The great red dragon's] "tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before THE WOMAN WHICH WAS READY TO BE DELIVERED, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.” See Matthew 2:12-13.

Revelation 12:5: “And she brought forth a MAN CHILD,” [Christ] “who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God,” [See Acts 1:10-11] “and to his throne.” See Luke 22:69 and Revelation 3:21.

Revelation 12:6: “And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they” [God and Christ] “should feed her" [The woman] "there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.” See verse 14.



Satan Cast Out Of Heaven


Revelation 12:7: “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels” [The righteous angels, see Daniel 12:1] “fought against the dragon;” [Satan] “and the dragon fought and his angels," The wicked angels.

Revelation 12:8: “And prevailed not;" [See verse 9] "neither was their place found any more in heaven.” Contrary to what is being taught in the churches, the war in heaven between Satan, his angels and the righteous angels (Michael and his angels), will take place prior to the Great Tribulation (explained below).

Revelation 12:9: “And the great dragon" [See verse 3] "was cast out,” [Of heaven] “that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”



The Loud Voice In Heaven


Revelation 12:10: “And I" [John] "heard" [At the time when Satan and his angels were cast out of heaven] "a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser” [Satan] “of our brethren” [The 144,000/Servants of God] “is cast down,” [Into the earth] “which accused them” [The 144,000/Servants of God] “before our God day and night.”

Revelation 12:11: “And they” [The 144,000/Servants of God] “overcame him” [Satan] “by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony;” [The testimony given by the 144,000 during the Great Tribulation, see Message to reader: The Period of Great Tribulation (3 ½ Years)] “and they loved not their lives unto the death.” See verse 17.

Revelation 12:12: “Therefore” [Because the 144,000/Servants of God overcame Satan by their testimony and death] “rejoice, ye heavens, and ye" [The righteous angels] "that dwell in them. Woe” [Affliction, suffering, misery etc.] “to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea!” [Mankind] “for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” See Revelation 20:1-3, 10.



Message to reader: The Period of Great Tribulation (3 ½ Years)

Satan and his angels will persecute (make war against) the Elect and kill (overcome) the Saints of the Most High/144,000/Servants of God, see Revelation 12:17. Satan will give power to the Beast whose deadly wound was healed, and the False Prophet (Kings of Babylon), see Revelation 13:4, 11-15. This time period is known as the Great Tribulation, see Matthew 24:21 and Daniel 12:1. The Great Tribulation will take place after Satan and his angels are cast out of heaven and into the earth.

The Most High will also raise up Two Witnesses (prophets), he will give them spiritual power, see Revelation 11:3-6, they will prophesy 3 ½ years (forty and two months, see Revelation 13:5; a thousand two hundred and threescore days, see Revelation 11:3; and a time, and times, and dividing of time, see Daniel 7:25) during the reign of the Beast whose deadly wound was healed and the False Prophet.

Matthew 24:22: “And except those days” [The days of Great Tribulation] “should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake" [Those who refuse worship the Beast whose deadly wound was healed, and who obey the teachings of the 144,000] "those days” [The forty and two months - the 3 ½ years; the time period of The Great Tribulation] “shall be shortened.” As foretold and explained by Christ.  



The Woman Persecuted


Revelation 12:13: “And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he” [Satan, see Revelation 12:7-9] “persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.” See verses 1, 6.

Revelation 12:14: “And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle,” [A way to escape] “that she" [The woman] "might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time,” [3 ½ Years, see verse 6] “from the face" [The Beast whose deadly wound was healed, and the False Prophet] "of the serpent.” Satan.

Revelation 12:15: “And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he" [The serpent/Satan] "might cause her: [The woman] "to be carried away” [Destroyed] “of the flood.” See Revelation 13:13-15.

Revelation 12:16: “And the earth helped the woman, and the earth" [See verses 6, 14] "opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.” 

Revelation 12:17: “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war” [See Daniel 7:21] “with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God," [See Revelation 14:12] "and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” See Revelation 19:10 and Revelation 22:7.







The Beast Whose Deadly Wound Was Healed



Message to reader: The Beast Whose Deadly Wound Was Healed

In Revelation 13:3, the seventh head wounded unto death, is the fulfillment of 2 Esdras 12:28, his (the seventh head’s) deadly wound was healed, as explained in Revelation 13:3 and Revelation 17:11. This Beast/king whose deadly wound was healed will be one of the last two rulers (See 2 Esdras 12:29-30), to rule the earth before the second coming of Christ. His kingdom is called “The Kingdom of Babylon.” He is also known as the king of Babylon (See Isaiah 14:4), and the man of sin/son of perdition (See 2 Thessalonians 2:3 and Revelation 17:8, 11).



Revelation 13:3: “And I" [John] "saw one of his heads" [The seventh head/The Eagle's right head] "as it were wounded to death;” [Killed, see 2 Esdras 12:28] “and his deadly wound was healed:” [The spirit of the man of sin/son of perdition shall be taken from the bottomless pit, and placed into the body of the seventh head/king, see Revelation 17:8, 11] “and all the world wondered” [Followed] “after the beast.”

Revelation 13:4: “And they” [Those not written in the book of life] “worshipped the dragon” [Satan] “which gave power unto the beast:" [Whose deadly wound was healed] "and they” [Those not written in the book of life] “worshipped the beast,” [Whose deadly wound was healed, see Revelation 17:8, 11] “saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?”

Revelation 13:5: “And there was given unto him" [The Beast whose deadly wound was healed] "a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies;” [Explained in verse 6] “and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.” The forty and two months or 3 ½ years, is the time period of the Great Tribulation!

Revelation 13:6: “And he” [The Beast whose deadly wound was healed] “opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.”

Revelation 13:7: “And it was given unto him” [The Beast whose deadly wound was healed] “to make war with the saints," [The 144,000/Servants of God] "and to overcome them:” [The 144,000/Servants of God - The Beast whose deadly wound was healed, will kill the 144,000/Servants of God, they will refuse to worship his image, see verses 13-15] “and power was given him” [The Beast whose deadly wound was healed, see Revelation 13:2, 4] “over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.”



Message to reader: The Book of Life

Exodus 32:31-33 and Revelation 20:15 makes it clear that the Most High has a book, which is called the Book of Life. Whosoever sins against the Most High, he bolts or erases their names out of his book; they will be cast into the lake of fire.

Christ is the mediator of the New Testament/Covenant, see Hebrews 9:14-15, those who followed him will be written in the Lamb's Book of Life, and those who rejected him will be bolted out, see Matthew 10:32-33 and Revelation 21:27.

The just and the unjust will be resurrected during the kingdom of the Beast whose deadly wound was healed, and the False Prophet, see Daniel 12:2. The names of the unjust are not written in the Book of Life; they will worship and follow the Beast.     

John 10:27-29 and Ephesians 1:3-4 explains that the Elect, and the 144,000/Servants of God were chosen in Christ by the Father before the foundation of the world. The Elect, and the 144,000/Servants of God will not worship and/or follow the Beast whose deadly wound was healed.



Revelation 13:8: “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him,” [The Beast whose deadly wound was healed, see verse 12] “whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”

Revelation 13:9: “If any man" [In the seven churches of Asia, see Revelation 1:11] "have an ear,” [The understanding] “let him hear.”

Revelation 13:10: “He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.” The “patience” of the saints is enduring affliction, persecution, and death, while patiently awaiting their rewards, see Revelation 20:4, 6. The 144,000 will receive power over the nations, to rule them with a rod of iron.



The False Prophet


Revelation 13:11: “And I" [John] "beheld another beast” [The False Prophet] “coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.” See Message to reader: The Little Horn and Daniel 7:8.

Revelation 13:12: “And he” [The False Prophet/The Little Horn] “exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him,” [The False Prophet will have the same power as the Beast whose deadly wound was healed, see Revelation 13:4-5, 7 and Daniel 7:24-25] “and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.”

Revelation 13:13: “And he” [The False Prophet] “doeth great wonders, so that he" [The False Prophet] "maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,”

Revelation 13:14: “And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he” [The False Prophet] “had power to do in the sight of the BEAST; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the BEAST, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.”



The Great Tribulation


Revelation 13:15: “And he” [The False Prophet] “had power to give life unto the image of the beast,” [Idolatry, see Revelation 14:9-11] “that the image of the beast should BOTH speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” “BOTH” is referring to the ability of the image of the beast to speak, and kill those who do not worship it. The 144,000/Servants of God will not worship the image of the Beast; they will be killed during this time period.

Revelation 13:16: “And he” [The False Prophet] “causeth all," [Those not written in the Book of Life, see verse 8] "both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:”

Revelation 13:17: “And that no man might buy or sell, save he” [The followers of the Beast whose deadly wound was healed] “that had the mark, or the name of the BEAST, or the number of his name.”

Revelation 13:18: “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”







The Two Witnesses


Revelation 11:3: “And I” [Christ] “will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days," [Three and half years, see Message to read: The Period of Great Tribulation (3 ½ Years)] "clothed in sackcloth.” Clothes worn as a sign signifying morning, humbling and supplication before God and men, see Genesis 37:33-34 and Judith 4:9-13.

Revelation 11:4: “These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.”

Revelation 11:5: “And if any man will hurt them,” [The Two Witnesses] “fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.”

Revelation 11:6: “These” [The Two Witnesses] “have power to shut heaven, that it rain not” [draught] “in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.”







The Judgment Of The Great Whore


Revelation 17:1: “And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials," [See Revelation 15:7] "and talked with me," [John] "saying unto me, Come hither; I" [The angel with one of the seven vials] "will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore” [Babylon] “that sitteth upon many waters:” [Nations, see verse 15].

Revelation 17:2: “With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her" [The great whore/Babylon's] "fornication.” See Revelation 13:5-8, 12-14.



The Woman And The Beast


Revelation 17:3: “So he" [The angel] "carried me" [John] "away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I" [John] "saw" [A vision of] "a woman” [The great city Babylon, see verse 18] “sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.” See Revelation 13:1 and Message to reader: The Little Horn.

Revelation 17:4: “And the woman" [Babylon] "was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls,” [Exceedingly rich, see Revelation 18:16] “having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:”

Revelation 17:5: “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”

Revelation 17:6: “And I" [John] "saw the woman” [Babylon] “drunken with the blood of the saints," [The 144,000/Servants of God] "and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus:” [The 144,000/Servants of God, see Revelation 13:7 and Revelation 18:24] “and when I" [John] "saw her," [The woman/Babylon] "I wondered with great admiration.”

Revelation 17:7: “And the angel said unto me," [John] "Wherefore didst thou marvel? I WILL TELL THEE THE MYSTERY OF THE WOMAN," [Babylon] "AND OF THE BEAST THAT CARRIETH HER, WHICH HATH THE SEVEN HEADS AND TEN HORNS.” See Revelation 13:1.



The Mystery Of The Beast


Revelation 17:8: “The beast that thou sawest WAS,” [The man of sin, see 2 Thessalonians 2:3-8] “and IS NOT;” [The man of sin was taken out of the way (put to death)] “and shall" [Future prophecy] "ascend out of the bottomless pit,” [The man of sin who was taken out of the way (or put to death), his spirit shall be taken from Hell, see Message to reader: Hell and Death, and place into the body of seventh king after he is wounded to death, see Revelation 13:3 and verse 11] “and go into PERDITION:” [Cast alive into the lake of fire, see Revelation 19:20] “and they that dwell on the earth" [In the last day, during the reign of the Beast whose deadly wound was healed and the False Prophet] "shall WONDER,” [Synonyms: fascinated, admire, esteem etc.] “whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world,” [The wicked/followers of the Beast whose deadly wound was healed and the False Prophet] “when they” [Those that dwell on the earth] “behold the beast that WAS,” [The man of sin spoken of in 2 Thessalonians] “and IS NOT,” [Because he was taken out of the way/dead] “and YET IS.” Ruling as the Beast, whose deadly wound was healed, brought back for his punishment, see 2 Thessalonians 2:8.

Revelation 17:9: “And here is the mind which hath wisdom.” [The understanding of the Bible] “The seven heads are seven mountains,” [Seven kingdoms] “on which the woman" [Babylon] "sitteth.” see verse 18.



Message to reader: The Seven Heads of the Beast

There will be a resurrection of the just and the unjust, see Daniel 12:2 and Acts 24:15. The seven heads and ten horns lived during the time period of John; they will be brought back in the last kingdom. The angel with one of the seven vials (See Revelation 17:1) revealed to John the mystery of the Beast with seven heads and ten horns.

As explained in Revelation chapter 1 John received the prophecies of the book of Revelation while on the Island of Patmos. The angel revealed to John that the beast was made up of seven kings, five kings were dead, and the sixth king was ruling at the time of this vision. The angel explained that the seventh king would rule for a short time. The kings that ruled in that time period are historically known as the Caesars. These seven Caesars/kings will be brought back at the end of the Fourth Kingdom/Roman Empire. Additionally, John is told that the Beast that was, and is not, his spirit will be placed in the body of the seventh king/Caesar.



Revelation 17:10: “And there are seven kings:” [Or Caesars] five are fallen," [Five kings/Caesars were dead (at the time John received this vision)] "and one is,” [The sixth king/Caesar was ruling] “and the other is not yet come;” [The seventh king/Caesar] “and when he" [The seventh king/Caesar] "cometh, he must continue a short space.” Rule for a short time! These events were revealed to John, they took place in the past.

Revelation 17:11: “And the beast that WAS, and IS NOT," [The man of sin, see verse 8] "even he" [The man of sin] "is the eighth,” [King (the Beast whose deadly wound was healed)] “and is of the seven," [Kings (the seven heads of the Beast)] "and goeth into perdition.” See Revelation 19:20.





The Ten Horns


Revelation 17:12: “And the ten horns" [See verse 3] "which thou sawest are ten kings,” [Or leaders] “which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.”

Revelation 17:13: “These" [The ten horns] "have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.”

Revelation 17:14: “These” [The ten horns] “shall make war with the Lamb,” [Christ, see Revelation 19:19] “and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings:" [See Revelation 19:11-16, 21] "and they" [The 144,000/Saints] "that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.” See Zechariah 14:5.



The Waters And The Whore


Revelation 17:15: “And he" [The angel] "saith unto me," [John] "The waters which thou sawest," [See verse 1] "where the whore” [The great city Babylon] “sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” Babylon shall rule over the entire earth, see verse 18.

Revelation 17:16: “And the ten horns” [The ten kings, see verses 3, 12] “which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore,” [The great city Babylon] “and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.”

Revelation 17:17: “For God hath put in their” [The ten kings] “hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.”

Revelation 17:18: “And the woman which thou sawest is that great city,” [Babylon, see Revelation 18:10] “which reigneth over the kings of the earth.”








The 144,000 (The Firstfruit)



Message to reader: The Firstfruits unto God and the Lamb (Christ)

Revelation 14:1 is the vision shown to John regarding the victory and reward of the 144,000/Servants of God. They are the firstfruits unto God and the Lamb (Christ); after being killed for their testimony (See Revelation 12:11), they shall be redeemed from the earth, see Revelation 14:4-5.



Revelation 14:1: “And I” [John] “looked,” [a vision] “and, lo, a Lamb” [Christ] “stood on the mount Sion, and with him" [Christ] "an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.” See Revelation 3:12.



Message to reader: The 144,000

According to the scriptures, during the time period of the seven churches in Asia those who died in the Lord were blessed; they were promised the blessing as stated above in Revelation 14:1, see Revelation 14:13 and John 6:39. The 144,000 shall be redeemed from the earth, being the firstfruits unto the Most High and Christ. This shall take place in the time period of the Beast whose deadly wound was healed. After being redeemed, they shall all receive the harps of God, sing as it were a new song before the Most High’s throne. The vision (Revelation 14:1-13) explains the victory of the 144,000 over the Beast whose deadly wound was healed. They shall be killed for their witness and testimony of Christ; they will not worship the Beast whose deadly wound was healed, and the False Prophet, nor his image, nor receive his mark upon their foreheads.

The killing of the 144,000 is the fulfillment of the Fifth Seal. After their death, they shall receive rewards, below are a few examples:

Clothed in white raiment, see Revelation 3:5 and Revelation 6:9-11
Sit with Christ in his throne, see Revelation 3:21, Revelation 20:4, Daniel 7:14
   
and Matthew 25:31

The 144,000/Servants of God with the harps of God are the ONLY men able to learn and sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb. The aforementioned songs will be sung in heaven before the Most High’s throne after they are redeemed from the earth.

Question to the readers: How could any other man learn this song if they were not killed and redeemed from the earth, given the harps of God, and present in the Most High’s throne room in heaven? In other words, how can you learn this song if you are not the firstfruits unto God and Christ? See Revelation 14:4.



The Song Of The 144,000


Revelation 14:2: “And I” [John] “heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I” [John] “HEARD the voice of harpers harping with their harps:” See Revelation 15:2.

Revelation 14:3: “And they” [The 144,000/Servants of God] “sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders:” [The Most High throne room in heaven] “and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.”

Revelation 14:4: “These are they” [The 144,000/Servants of God] “which were not defiled with women;” [See Proverbs 2:16-22] “for they are virgins.” [The 144,000 shall be presented as chaste virgin, see 2 Corinthians 11:2] “These are they” [The 144,000] “which follow the Lamb” [Christ] “whithersoever he goeth. These” [The 144,000] “were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits: [The first among those written in the Lamb's book of life, see Revelation 3:5] "unto God and to the Lamb.”

Revelation 14:5: “And in their mouth” [The 144,000/Servants of God] “was found no guile:" [The 144,000 spoke the words of Christ] "for they” [The 144,000] “are without fault before the throne of God.”



Message to reader: The Three Angels

Revelation 14:6-11, represents the period of the Great Tribulation, the destruction of Babylon (The Day of the Lord), and the final judgment/second death. The Saints/144,000 will keep the commandments of Christ and patiently await the fulfillment of God’s word/prophecies.


The first angel’s warning (Revelation 14:6-7) is an allegory (symbolic representation) of the period of Great Tribulation wherein the Saints/144,000 will preach the everlasting gospel, see Message to reader: The Period of Great Tribulation (3 ½ Years);


The second angel (Revelation 14:8) foretells the destruction of Babylon that will occur on the Day of the Lord after the Great Tribulation;


The third angel (Revelation 14:9-11, 14-20) foretells the punishments that will come upon everyone who worship the Beast whose deadly wound was healed and the False Prophet.


The third angel (Revelation 14:12) also explains the patience of the Saints/144,000; they must patiently teach during the time period of the Great Tribulation and have faith that the wicked, Revelation 14:9, will receive their just rewards/punishments, Revelation 14:10-11. Additionally, as stated in Revelation 14:13, the faithful, in the seven churches, who died in the Lord shall be blessed and receive the reward mentioned in Revelation 14:1.



The First Angel (The Period Of Great Tribulation)


Revelation 14:6: “And I” [John] “saw” [a vision] “another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,”

Revelation 14:7: “Saying with a loud voice," [The first angel] "Fear" [Obey] "God, and give glory to him; for" [Because] "the hour of his judgment" [The destruction of Babylon, see Isaiah 13:19, Genesis 19:24 and Revelation 18:8] "is come:” [At hand] “and worship him” [The Most High] “that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.”
