And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. [Abridged to the first 8 verses]
The Seven Seals are aligned side by side below to show how each Seal goes into specific detail within a certain time period of these End Times.
Together they represent the Lord's entire End Times 4 part salvation plan.
The fifth Seal
THE 2300 DAYS
And when he had opened the fifthseal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
10 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?
11 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.
THESE 5100 DAYS
And I beheld when he had opened the sixthseal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
13 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.
14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
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;
16 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:
17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
* The Sixth Seal is not in sequential order per se. It first describes the beginning of Judgment Day on May 21, 2011 within Revelation 6:12-17 (above). Revelation 7 (below) then proceeds to describe those whom were previously sealed/protected from the wrath of Judgment Day which were the 144,000 from the Church Age - ending the 2300 Days and the Great Multitude ending the 6100 Days. Although it would fit better if I had placed Revelation 7 above Revelation 6:12-17 in this side by side comparison, I felt I should preserve the way the Lord had intended it.
And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
3 Saying, Hurtnotthe earth, neitherthe sea, northe trees, tillwe have sealedthe servantsof ourGodintheirforeheads.
4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
5 Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.
6 Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.
7 Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.
8 Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
The seventh Seal
Revelation 8 / 9 / 10
* The Seventh Seal describes this full three-part Final Great Tribulation. The seven angels with the Seven Trumpets show the sequence of God's judgment from start to finish.
THE 2300 DAYS
And when he had opened the seventhseal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
There is one important observation that we see during the 2300 Days. There is no judgment from the Lord. The Judge has left the Church. But when the gospel (Truth) is once again broadcast on a grand scale within the 6100 Days, the judgment begins within the Church (read below).
THE 6100 DAYS
2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seventrumpets.
3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.
5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
7 The firstangelsounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
8 And the secondangelsounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
10 And the thirdangelsounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
12 And the fourthangelsounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabitersofthe earthby reason ofthe othervoicesof the trumpetof the threeangels, whichare yetto sound!
The four angels that have sounded above all pertain to judgment within the Church.
The sixth Seal
THESE 5100 DAYS
And the fifthangelsounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
4 Andit was commandedthemthatthey shouldnothurtthe grassof the earth, neitheranygreen thing, neitheranytree; butonlythose menwhichhavenotthe sealof Godintheirforeheads.5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.
8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.
10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
12 Onewoeis past; and, behold, there cometwowoesmorehereafter.
Thesefive months are symbolic following the example God gives us in Noah's Flood. Full Flood stage was five months (150 days). The 150 days (5 months) showed us that all land life perished due to the judgment waters. So too do the five months of the locusts represent the perpetual death of spiritual life during our symbolic Noah's Flood. Just as Noah's judgment of the Flood continued on until the Ark door was opened, so too does our judgment continue until the Elect's door is opened unto Heaven. No salvation (death) continues until The End... sadly.
MAY 7, 2025
13 And the sixthangelsounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
15 And the four angels were loosed, whichwere preparedforan hour, anda day, anda month, anda year, for to slay the third part of men.
16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.
17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.
18 By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.
19 For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.
20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.
5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
7 Butinthe daysof the voiceof the seventhangel, whenhe shall beginto sound, the mysteryof Godshould be finished, ashe hath declaredto hisservantsthe prophets.
8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.
9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
10 And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
Although we may know a date there is no way of knowing the day or hour as scripture tightly adheres to. There is a 2 day span with all the time zones.
And I saw when the Lamb opened oneofthe seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
2 And I saw, and behold a whitehorse: 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 2300 DAYS
3 And when he had opened thesecondseal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
4 And there went out anotherhorsethat 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 6100 DAYS
5 And when he had opened the thirdseal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, andloa blackhorse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
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.
THESE 5100 DAYS
7 And when he had opened the fourthseal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
8 And I looked, andbeholda palehorse: 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 Seven Seals are not a continuous timeline. They are a description of many different views of God's 4 part salvation plan. When knowing this the complication is actually very simply understood.
Revelation 5 Declares that only Jesus can open the 7 Seals and read them.
Revelation 6:1-8 The first 4 Seals are an overview from the Church Age to the Rapture.
Revelation 6:9-11 The 5th Seal describes the 2300 Days after the Church Age.
Revelation 6:12-17 The 6th Seal describes two scenarios. It first describes Judgment Day.
Revelation 7 It then goes into detail about the two distinct groups of people whom were sealed and saved from the wrath of Judgment Day, the 144,000 and the Great Multitude which no man can number.
Revelation 8, 9 10 The 7th Seal describes the different forms of judgment spanning the full 3 part Final Great Tribulation from 1988 through the Rapture of 2025.
MORE INFORMATION ON THE 4 HORSES
The four horses
We know that the White, Red, Black and Pale Horses all represent what has historically been happening throughout God's Salvation Plan. All the horses have always contesting with each other. It's like a Chess game. Since the Church Age began the Elect were conquering (spreading the Gospel) as the White Horse is represented. At the same time Satan has been trying to prevent this from happening by inserting his false teachers within the Church - the Red Horse - thereby at times making the True Gospel very difficult to come by, hence the Black Horse. And of course Satan's false gospel ends in death... the Pale Horse. But it seems that these four horses are referring to an even greater more specific plan. God's 4 part salvation plan.
The four horses represent God's four part salvation plan
We understand that there have been specific times/dates that each horse is magnificentlymagnified. A period of time when an epic or drastic event has begun within God's 4 part Salvation Plan such as 33A.D., 1988, 1994, and 2011. Four dates/four horses.
As you will see, if we align all four horses in sequence we find that they fit perfectly within historical order.
The Church Age
A time of testimony
The White Horse is stated as conquering (with power and authority) with a crown that was given upon his head. From this statement we know that this represents God's people because they were given the crown. White represents purity/cleanliness and the crown represents authority. He started his conquering at Pentecost (33A.D.) as the Church Age began with the Holy Spirit being let loose (Acts 2:1-4 / Revelation 12:10-11).
Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judæa, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Great Tribulation - 1988
A time of no testimony within the Church
TheRed Horse has always been Satan and his kingdom trying to prevent the White Horse's conquering by deception and strife to a point. BUT, notice that the rider was given power (authority) and a great sword (scripture - albeit false doctrine). This word for "great sword" is the same greek word used for "great tribulation" (G3173 - Megas). This is'nt just an alternate sword of the scripture, it's a great big false scriptural sword! This contradicts what we find in Revelation 13:3 which states his authority was taken away during the 1955 years of the Church Age: "And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death...". Historically we find that the Red Horse was given epic authority and a great sword at the start of this Final Great Tribulation in 1988 (Notice Satan's crowns are upon his 7 heads in Revelation 12:13 yet they are now upon his 10 horns in Revelation 13... showing his authority over the churches).
Great Tribulation - 1994
A time of testimony during tribulation
The Black Horse is the only horse that was not "given" something. This is because the rider appears to be the Holy Spirit for it is only He that gives knowledge and understanding (spiritual food) to God's people (which are riding the White Horse). The Black Horse is detailed with having a balance in his hands. "A measureof wheatfor a penny, andthreemeasuresof barleyfor a penny;..." Notice that there are two separate measurements stated. The Greek word here for "measure" is "choinix". When we research this word we find that it was a rationed unit of grain for a man per day in Athens. The word for "wheat" is actually "grain". When researching the 3 "choinikes" (plural) of barley, we find in the Old Testament within Ruth 3 that Ruth was given 6 measures of barley for her days work only so her mother-in-law would not be left hungry, otherwise she would have received 3. This equates to 3 measures of barley for a days work per person. In Matthew 20:2 Jesus also proclaims that a "penny" was a day's wage. All these examples show there was plenty of food for those whom worked. The Holy Spirit was only measuring out spiritual food (knowledge and understanding) to those whom were outside the Church (riding the White Horse). Those within the Church can not spiritually work therefore it was they whom were under extreme hunger.
* We know that the Holy Spirit was taken out of the Church starting in 1988 so we know this Black Horse is not referring to the 2300 Days.
* The Black Horse was also released during Judah's great tribulation 2nd part as the White Horse followed (God's people).
* The Oil & Wine within the Great Winepress did not begin until 1994 (1600 furlongs), this is yet another proof that the Black Horse was released during the 6100 Days.
When we factor in the remaining part of the verse, "andsee thou hurtnotthe oilandthe wine.", we realize that the Black Horse is certainly representative of 1994 - the start of the 6100 Days. The oil and wine are the Elect in these Latter Days. They are part of the final harvest offering for the Feast of Tabernacles. Oil & wine can not be harvested they must be refined from Olives & Grapes. This is a picture of the Great Winepress being trodden beginning in 1994 (see the 1600 furlong study). Not hurting the oil & wine during this time also corresponds with the 7th Seal describing the hurting of the third within the Church during the 6100 Days. The measure of food of the balance was only distributed to the Great Multitude (Elect) which no man can number. There was plenty of spiritual food available but only to those whom were saved outside the Church for it was only them that could do spiritual work. The rest of the world was dying of extreme hunger.
For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard. Morning is the start of the day/September 7, 1994 began morning. When the Black Horse was released to the laborers outside the Church.
2 And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. The laborers worked for a penny a day/The scales of the Black Horse were measured for a penny for the laborers.
3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,
4 And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way.
5 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise.
6 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle?
7 They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive. All through the 6100 days the Great Multitude which no man could number grew and labored because it was yet day.
8 So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first.
9 And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.
10 But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny.
11 And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house,
12 Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.
13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?
14 Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.
15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?
16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. When evening came so did Judgment Day/darkness. The laborers had finished their work.
Great Tribulation - 2011
A time of no testimony/waiting
The Pale Horse undeniably represents these last 5100 Days of no salvation which began in 2011. It has spread a global pandemic plague of death to which only the Elect are immune from. Death & hell abounds until Creation has been destroyed. There is sadly no hope of salvation any longer. This is not a light thing to declare. If we would have understood that these 4 horses represented God's 4 part salvation plan, we would have understood that there was a waiting period after Judgment Day because we see that hell followed the "Death Horse". Hell only exists until Creation has been destroyed.
Revelation 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lakeof fire. Thisisthe seconddeath.
