Message to reader: The First Four Seals

As stated in our (Yaashyah and Tazadaq’s) welcome message, “This web site is set up to document our progress in the understanding of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ found throughout the Bible.” Additionally we stated, “Lord's will, we will continuously read, study, and update this web site in accordance with our understanding of the scriptures.”

In studying the words of Christ found in Matthew 24, and specifically, verse 34: “Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.” It is clear, based on that statement, that all the prophecies in Matthew 24:4-31, will occur (be fulfilled) in the lifetime of that generation of people (who lived during the time of Christ) who are raised up again, and living on the earth in the last day, see Matthew 16:24-28, Revelation 1:7 and John 6:39-40. Additionally, according to the Bible, a generation is around Seventy (70) Years, see Psalm 90:10.

In looking at The First Four Seals, and understanding that they coincide with what Christ said in Matthew 24:4-8. We believe that the rumours of wars, nation against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, is the raise of The beast with Seven Heads and Ten Horns. However, at this time we are not able to place each of the seven heads in their proper seal. We await that understanding from Christ and the Most High.



The First Four Seals

THE FIRST SEAL


Revelation 6:1: “And I” [John] “saw when the Lamb" [Christ] "opened one of the seals,” [See Revelation 5:5, 7] “and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts [See Revelation 4:6-7] “saying, Come and see.”


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.”


The vision of The First Seal is explained below: The Third Contrary Feather.



THE SECOND SEAL


Revelation 6:3: “And when he” [Christ] “had opened the second seal, I” [John] “heard the second beast [See Revelation 4:6-7] “say, Come and see.”


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 sword.”



THE THIRD SEAL


Revelation 6:5: “And when he” [Christ] “had opened the third seal, I” [John] “heard the third beast[See Revelation 4:6-7] “say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.”


Revelation 6:6: “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.”



THE FOURTH SEAL


Revelation 6:7: “And when he” [Christ] “had opened the fourth seal, I” [John] “heard the voice of the fourth beast [See Revelation 4:6-7] “say, Come and see.”


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.”

2 Esdras 11:28: “And I beheld, and, lo, the two” [The Fifth and the Sixth Contrary Feathers (The THIRD and FOURTH heads of the beast)] “that remained thought also in themselves to reign:”

2 Esdras 12:20: “That in him” [The Eagle] “there shall arise eight kings, whose times" [Ruler ships] "shall be but small," [Short/not long] "and their years" [To rule] "swift.”

2 Esdras 11:32: “But this” [Middle] “head put the whole earth in fear, and bare rule in it over all those that dwelt upon the earth with much oppression; and it had the governance: [Rule] "of the world more than all the wings" [The Twelve Feathers/Caesars and six, of the eight, Contrary Feathers] "that had been.”

Revelation 13:3-18


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, is explained in Revelation 17:8, 11. This BEAST/king whose deadly wound was healed will be one of the last two rulers, to rule the earth before Christ returns, see 2 Esdras 12:29-30.



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:” [See Revelation 17:8, 11] “and all the world wondered after the BEAST.” The BEAST whose deadly wound was healed.


Revelation 13:4: “And they worshipped the dragon” [Satan] “which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast,” [Whose deadly wound was healed] “saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?”



Message to reader: The Children of Satan

According to Revelation 13:4 everyone (all nations) that follows/worships the BEAST whose deadly wound was healed are the children of Satan.

The children of Satan, both Jews and Gentiles, cannot follow the words of God and the testimony of Christ, see John 8:13-14, 17-18, 41-45, 47, John 10:24-26 and John 12:44, 46-48 and Acts 14:1-5.



Revelation 13:5: “And there was given unto him" [The BEAST whose deadly wound was healed] "a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; 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: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.” See verse 4.


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.”



Message to reader: The Book of Life

The Most High has a book, which is called the Book of Life. Whosoever sins against the Most High, he blots or erases their names out of his book, see Exodus 32:31-33.

Christ is the mediator of the New Testament/Covenant, those who followed him will be written in the Lamb's Book of Life, and those who deny him will not be written in his book, see Hebrews 9:14-15, Matthew 10:32-33, Revelation 3:5 and Revelation 21:27.



Revelation 13:9: “If any man 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.” See Daniel 7:18, Revelation 2:26-27 and Revelation 20:4.



THE FALSE PROPHET


Revelation 13:11: “And I" [John] "beheld another beast” [The Eighth Contrary Feather, see 2 Esdras 12:29-30] “coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.”


Revelation 13:12: “And he” [The Eighth Contrary Feather (also known as The Little Horn)] “exerciseth all the power of the first BEAST before him,” [See Revelation 13:5, 7 and Daniel 7:25] “and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first BEAST, whose deadly wound was healed.”


Revelation 13:13: “And he doeth great wonders, so that he 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 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.”



Message to reader: The False Prophet

The beast that had two horns like a lamb (The Eighth Contrary Feather/The Little Horn) is also known as The False Prophet. The BEAST whose deadly wound was healed and The False Prophet shall be cast into the lake of fire by Christ, see Revelation 19:20.



Revelation 13:15: “And he had power to give life unto the image of the BEAST, 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.” See Revelation 20:4.


Revelation 13:16: “And he [The Eight Contrary Feather/The Little Horn/False Prophet] “causeth all," [Those not written in the Book of Life (the children of Satan)] "both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:” See verse 8.


Revelation 13:17: “And that no man might buy or sell, save he” [The worshippers of the BEAST] “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.”
