Wrath Of The Lamb: The Revelation Of Jesus Christ

Revelation Chapter 6:

Overview to the Seven Seals - Strategy For Ending The Plan Of Salvation: In Chapter Six John relates the state of the earth at the time of the end.

Many people believe that because God is aware of the future He must have programmed us to behave the way we do. They call this the doctrine of 'predestination', claiming that men do not really exercise free will under God.

Nothing could be further from the truth, however. The doctrine of predestination is simply another result of man trying mold God in man's sinful, thus limited, image. We can't imagine an intellect capable of love beyond our capabilities, so we assume God must not possess an intellect or love greater than ours.

But the truth is that God knows the future because God created us, and He has known from the day He created us - through LOVE - what our choices would be throughout earth's history. He knew we would sin, yet He created us anyway, complete with a plan for teaching us the results of sin.

The difficult part for humans is: While God knows what we are going to do, we do not know what we are going to do, so we are still obligated to make the right choices by loving and caring for one another as He would. And to love Him and one another. This is all that God has ever asked of us.

What event indicates that the end of the Plan of Salvation is at hand? Jesus said:

    "...If a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house." (Mark 3:25-27 KJV)

The Apostle Paul tells us:

    "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God." (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 KJV)

This is where we stand today. That 'man of sin', the instigator of the downfall of apostate Christianity, has 'legally' voided God's entire Ten Commandment Law, disenfranchised all religious believers, and has also exalted himself above the God by attempting to undermine the structure of Islam.

The use of God's name by the US Government today is simply blasphemous, as it has completely rebelled against the moral authority of His Law. The US government today is acting as God, dealing judgment and death to God's people of Islam with the tacit approval of apostate Christian religions. In the process, the government is trying to implement the same type of oppressive 'democracy' in Islamic nations that has corrupted the morals of, and removed the political rights of, devout people within these same Christian religions.

If you believe that God loves the entire world as He says He does, that He is a greater Strategist than any human general in history, then you must know that today - right now - the strong man mentioned by Jesus is plainly bound (tied up) by his own lies.

We just need eyesalve to see the truth.

    The First Seal:

    See Also: First Church | First Trumpet | First Plague

    "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." (Revelation 6:2 KJV)

    • First Horseman: The first horsemen is Apostate "Christian" Civil Government, represented by the "Beast" in Revelation chapter thirteen. The crown this horseman is given represents our crowned King, Jesus, as the founder of Christianity, and the fact that He made all of His followers kings as well. Under the blasphemous use of His name nations have been conquering with violence since Constantine. The first horseman's identity is further confirmed in verse 8 when this Beast, and the second Beast of chapter 13, are characterized as "the beasts of the earth" to whom was given power to "kill a fourth part of the earth".

    The Second Seal:

    See Also: Second Church | Second Trumpet | Second Plague

    "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." (Revelation 6:4 KJV)

    • Second Horseman: Islamic Government, responsible for wounding one of the seven heads of the Beast of Chapter Thirteen. This wound is a reference to the Crusades begun in 1096 AD (See the iniquity remembered by God described in Ezekiel 21:23). Islam is the only religion given permission by God to defend itself through war, thus it was given power to "take peace from the earth". The "Great Sword" is the Quran, the Word of God as recorded by the Prophet Mohammed (pbuh).

        "Fighting is obligatory for you, though it is hateful to you. But you may hate a thing although it is good for you, and may love a thing although it is evil for you. Allah knows, and you do not." - [Surah 2.216]

      The Quran's representation of God's attitude toward war is much like the attitude initially assigned to God by Moses in the Bible, an attitude that describes God as capable of killing, or of giving men permission to kill.

    The Third Seal:

    See Also: Third Church | Third Trumpet | Third Plague

    "And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast 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. 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." (Revelation 6:5-6 KJV)

    • Third Horseman: The Judgment of just war (rendered prophetically in Ezekiel 21:13). The voice in the midst of the four beasts states the criterion of just war: That laid out by Jesus in the Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:33-35). In that parable the good Samaritan rescued the wounded man, dressed his wounds and tended to his spirit, then left him with an innkeeper, paying two pennies for the man's care. War for the purpose of rescue is tolerated as long as the victim's humanitarian needs are taken care of by the victor, and as long as the spirit of the victim is not compromised ("See thou hurt not the oil and the wine").

    The Fourth Seal:

    See Also: Fourth Church | Fourth Trumpet | Fourth Plague

    "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." (Revelation 6:8 KJV)

    • Fourth Horseman: Death and the Grave. "And power was given unto them over a fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth". This fourth part of the earth that will die from this final transgression is the Beast itself, the Beast "that was, and is not, and yet is" (Revelation 17:8) because it is an abomination of Christianity and civil authority. True Christianity is a brotherhood ruled only by God, there cannot be a "Christian" government that does not operate as a brotherhood with God as its one and only Leader.

    The Fifth Seal:

    See Also: Fifth Church | Fifth Trumpet | Fifth Plague

    Judgment Of Pre-Christian Saints: "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 fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled." (Revelation 6:9-11 KJV)

    The Sixth Seal:

    See Also: Sixth Church | Sixth Trumpet | Sixth Plague

    "And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and 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; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 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 6:12-17 KJV)

    • Sixth Seal - The great spiritual earthquake of September 11th, 2001: The moon and sun as affected by the "heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together", the long plume of smoke of that day. The stars of heaven represent the saints within the twin towers when they collapsed. See Ezekiel Chapter twenty one.

        "And it shall be, when they say unto thee, Wherefore sighest thou? that thou shalt answer, For the tidings; because it cometh: and every heart shall melt, and all hands shall be feeble, and every spirit shall faint, and all knees shall be weak as water: behold, it cometh, and shall be brought to pass, saith the Lord GOD." (Ezekiel 21:7)

      The darkened state of the sun and moon also represent spiritual desolation and darkness of Judeo-Christianity before September 11, 2001, comparable only to the spiritual darkness reached by Christianity at the time of Crusades after the Fourth Trumpet of Revelation was sounded.

      Organized Christianity today, made up of tax-exempt "non-profit" corporations that profit mightily while the poor suffer, is the spiritual Harlot of Babylon. Chapter Eighteen of Revelation notes the how the Crusades are remembered by God at this time:

        "For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities." (Revelation 18:5 KJV)

      The Western powers of the current "anti-terrorism" coalition are killing, corrupting, and oppressing God's people of Fundamentalist Islam world-wide using GOD as their authority. Yet the driving force behind their efforts are the economic goals of securing oil supplies for the West and opening new markets for corporate special interests.

      As such these powers define the Beast of Revelation, whose wound represents the defeat of Christianity in the Crusades, and who is the "Abomination of Desolation" spoken of by Jesus throughout the Bible:

        "But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains." (Mark 13:14)

      Western powers - especially the USA as the world's sole 'superpower' - are acting in God's name with absolutely no spiritual authority to do so, with the tacit approval of the "Christian" Churches of Babylon - churches who accept bribes and favors from governments.

      They are paid to keep silent.

      True Christians themselves have been virtually disenfranchised from Western political systems that have disenfranchised people of all beliefs, forcing them to accept every type of moral and political evil known to man if they wish to participate in the political process.

      • Every mountain moved out of its place: Apostate Christianity justified the use of offensive violence as vengeance, Apostate Islam claimed to be a 'peaceful religion'.

      • Every island moved out of its place: The former international coalition formed for the Gulf War fell apart, the USA waged offensive war against poor nations.

      • People requesting Mountains and Rocks to fall on them: Most people of all kinds sought answers to the carnage in religion, including the President of the United States (said to the mountains, 'fall on us') or in God (said to the Rocks, 'fall on us').

      But it's too late. They've turned the world upside down, the lamb of democracy has become the wolf of capitalistic fascism.

      Only God has the answers now, no religion created by man retains any type of credibility today, for they are all tolerating men of greed, religious and atheistic, acting in God's name against the commands of their own scriptures. God warned us of September 11th long ago, in Ezekiel Chapter Twenty One:

        "Cry and howl, son of man: for it shall be upon my people, it shall be upon all the princes of Israel: terrors by reason of the sword shall be upon my people: smite therefore upon thy thigh.

        "Because it is a trial, and what if the sword contemn even the rod? it shall be no more, saith the Lord GOD.

        "Thou therefore, son of man, prophesy, and smite thine hands together, and let the sword be doubled the third time, the sword of the slain: it is the sword of the great men that are slain, which entereth into their privy chambers.

        "I have set the point of the sword against all their gates, that their heart may faint, and their ruins be multiplied: ah! it is made bright, it is wrapped up for the slaughter." (Ezekiel 21:12-15)

        "And thou, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: this shall not be the same: exalt him that is low, and abase him that is high.

        "I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him." (Ezekiel 21:25-27)
