The Sixth Seal
Message to reader: The Great Earthquake

The Great Earthquake signifies the beginning of the Day of the Lord, see Isaiah 13:13. The Great Earthquake begins with the sounding of the Seventh Trumpet, and the pouring of the Seventh Vial into the air. The Great Earthquake is written in Matthew 24:29, Revelation 6:12-17, Revelatuon 11:19 and Revelation 16:17-21.



Revelation 6:12: “And I” [John] “beheld when he” [Christ] “had opened the sixth seal,” [Christ opened the sixth seal of the book that he received from the Most High, see Revelation 5:5, 7] “and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;” See Mark 13:24-25.

Revelation 6:13: “And" [During and/or after the great earthquake] "the stars of heaven fell unto the earth," [See Matthew 24:29] "even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.”

Revelation 6:14: “And" [During and/or after the great earthquake] "the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.”

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;”

Revelation 6:16: “And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him" [The Most High] "that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:” Christ!

Revelation 6:17: “For the great day of his wrath is come;" [The Day of the Lord] "and who shall be able to stand?”







The Seventh Vial/Plague


Revelation 16:17: “And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.” All seven vials have been poured out, see Revelation 15:1, 8.

Revelation 16:18: “And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.” See Isaiah 2:19, Isaiah 13:13, Isaiah 24:20-21, Joel 3:16, Haggai 2:6-7 and Mark 13:24-25.

Revelation 16:19: “And the great city” [Babylon] “was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell:” [Because of the Great Earthquake] “and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her” [Babylon] “the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.” The destruction of Babylon will come from Christ, the holy angels and the 144,000, it will take place after the Great Earthquake.

Revelation 16:20: “And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.”

Revelation 16:21: “And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent:" [Because of the Great Earthquake, see Matthew 24:29] "and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.”







The Seventh Trumpet/Plague


Revelation 11:15: “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ;” [See verse 18] “and he” [Christ] “shall reign for ever and ever.”

Revelation 11:16: “And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,”

Revelation 11:17: “Saying, We” [The 24 elders] “give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art,” [Is; because God, at the time of this statement, has began to show his judgment/wrath (the seven last plagues)] “and wast,” [In the past, see 2 Esdras 6:1-6] “and art to come;” [In the future] “because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.” See Revelation 21:1-6.

Revelation 11:18: “And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come,” [The Day of the Lord] “and the time of the dead, that they should be judged,” [See Ecclesiastes 3:17, Daniel 12:2 and 2 Timothy 4:1] “and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great;” [See Revelation 20:4-6] “and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.” See Psalm 53:1-4.

Revelation 11:19: “And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.” The same earthquake mentioned in Revelation 16:18.
