END TIME NOTES OF REFERENCE as to where we are now in the Book of Revelation
The Lord Jesus Christ began opening the Seals shortly after he went into Heaven to sit with his Father on the Throne. He at that time was found worthy to open them and did begin to do so.
*[I want to say that I have made this above observation through prayer and study of the scriptures involved. It must be understood that the time that Jesus actually began to open the seals is not actually stated but only by studying the results of doing so does indicate the timing. The fact that the Apostle Paul under inspiration said that “The Spirit of the Anti-Christ has already began to work indicates that the First Seal horseman was the Anti-Christ who went out to conquer. (added in explanation. KD].
It appears to me, that it has taken some two thousand years (depending on the actual time he began to open them) to open them up to Seal number 5 where we are positioned now as a Body of Christ. The cry going out at this moment is…
HOW LONG OH LORD will it be until our blood us avenged upon the enemy:
“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” Revelation 6:9-11.
While we many are crying out HOW LONG.. we hear the hoof beats of the FOUR HORSES RUINING. They have been running for years already. They will continue to run until the end. Many are being Killed and are Martyrs for Christ everyday somewhere in the world. It is just now being realized that many right here in the country could become Martyrs as the days of persecution are upon us.
I have heard the Lord saying we are at this place waiting for the 6th Seal to be opened.
*[I did ask Him several years ago and he replied, “You are waiting for the 6th seal to open.” (added for clarity. KD)]
When it does it will happen with a CHANGE IN THE HEAVENS and many SIGNS WILL APPEAR..
“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” Revelation 6:12-14.
I believe the beginning of the 7 years of Tribulation which are coming upon the Earth will begin after the sixth seal opens and the first 3 1/2 years will be the Seven Trumpets. Notice the wording found in the passage describing the Sixth Seal:
“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?” Revelation 6:15-17.
I REPEAT FOR CLARITY: THEY ALL SAID….. “For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” I look for the Word to tell you things. In this statement.. all were saying THE DAY OF HIS WRATH (TRIBULATION) HAS COME. They ran and tried to hide from God.
It is an interesting point to know that at the end of the Tribulation there will also be a CHANGE IN THE HEAVENS.. consider this:
“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” Matthew 24:29-30.
It is Noteworthy that the Days of Tribulation begin with a HEAVENLY SHAKE UP AND SIGNS and the End will also in like manner. The main difference is that in the beginning of the Tribulation the Moon will turn to Blood, but in the End it will be darkened only.
HOW LONG LORD WILL IT BE TILL THE SHAKING OF SEAL 6 BEGINS? That is one question I can not answer, because if I could, I WOULD KNOW WHEN HE WILL COME AGAIN. The Bible says we cannot know exactly…. but we can know the “Season”. IT SURE IS LOOKING LIKE IT IS COMING…..SOON. But SINCE IT TOOK OVER 2000 YEARS TO GET HERE… HOW LONG YET WILL IT BE?
ARE YOU READY?
