The 6 SEALS of Revelation
Revelation/Apocalypse Chapter 6




The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse
False peace / war /
Food-control, Famines / Pestilences, Plagues, mega-deaths/
Hell on earth


The following 6 seals have been continuous and ongoing all throughout history, ever increasing in intensity until finally culminating in "The Day of the Lord", inaugurated by W W 3 , as we see it. Time will tell.
The details of the following events are given to us in
Matthew 24.

Revelation 6 :
1st Horseman of the Apocalypse ... First Seal ... A False Peace
Revelation / Apocalypse 6:2

Antichrist will be perceived as a " man of peace", but he brings a false peace that doesn’t hold;
"And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow ; and a crown was given unto him: ( Nobel peace prize ?)
and he went forth conquering and to conquer." (first politically , then militarily.

CRISIS brings up false "messiahs"
How to recognize dictators -- by Rabbi Daniel Lapin
Here are two chief characteristics of tyrants:
1. The first is they come to power during times of chaos and anarchy. When the traditions and rules that hold together the invisible framework of social stability collapse, the tyrant seized his moment. We humans so yearn for predictability [ ed: "security" ] in our lives that even if it is offered by someone odious and suspect, we will often embrace it. Freedom run amok can be far more frightening to ordinary folks trying to raise their families and feed them than the cartoon figure with the moustache who insists on total power in order to restore our lives to the normality of our nostalgia.
2. The second characteristic of tyrants is they dominate the epoch [ ed: "media" ] within their cultures. They demand and obtain a worship of personality. Statues, parades and rallies are only symbolic of the total authority they exercise over their people. Women frequently adore them and babies are raised in their adulation.

2nd Horseman of the Apocalypse -- WAR ; Revelation 6:4 Second Seal
"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." Matthew 24: 6, 7
"And you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars.....but the end is not yet" "For nation shall rise against nation , and kingdom against kingdom"
 Revelation 8 and 9 ;

Magog War of Ezekiel 39 and 39 hopetotheend.com/ch3p1.html

As we see it:
The Magog War consists of three parts:
1. An attack upon Israel's ally---
America --- possibly by North Korea, Russia's ally ; Rev. 6:14; Jeremiah 50:3
2. Russian-led confederacy comes against
Israel, but is defeated upon her Northern mountain. ( Golan area, Mt. Hermon ? )
3. U.S. makes
retaliatory strikes

We see the Magog War as a catalyst for terrorism and more wars to follow (
the Seven Thunders) up to Rev. 11:19
We believe that the Church will witness the War on American soil before we go in
the Rapture; or simultaneously (2 Thessalonians 1: 7, 8 + 11 )
See also Genesis 19: 22 where God delivers the righteous BEFORE sending judgement. As we go in the Rapture, we are not to look behind.
Luke 17 "remember Lot's wife "

 
3rd Horseman of the Apocalypse ....ECONOMIC HARDSHIP...Third Seal
hyperinflation / food rationing / hardship / deprivations, unemployment; Revelation 6: 5, 6o
"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."
Possibly an oil crisis and gasoline will be rationed. Luxuries are more attainable than food or jobs.

Reflecting on the Third Horseman :
Droughts and damaging weather will cause food shortages and increased prices
hopetotheend.com/dearth.html

HYPERINFLATION has already started as we see prices rise at the grocery stores, gas pumps, and especially in our UTILITIES (heating, electricity) and rents, etc. Eventually it will take a day's wages for a loaf of bread
Rev. 6: 6 A household will not be sustainable with just one person working. ( male bread winner).
hopetotheend.com/mammon.html
It will be all hands on deck as spouses, children and friends help one another to survive the increasing inflation.
Please see Psalm 37  http://www.blueletterbible.org

"hurt not the wine or the oil"......
We believe that this refers to 2 distinct classes of people...the poor and the rich, with no strong middle class.
Necessities will become luxuries, and they will be rationed. Gasoline may become rationed like it was back in 1973 (during the Yom Kippur War).
Yet God is still our provider. Please see Jehovah-Jireh
hopetotheend.com/JJ.html   and First and Second Kings hopetotheend.com/sparo.html 1, 2 K

May we always remember that God's provision is with us, even in times of famine.

What about Gold?  the economy...the Stock Market ?
"Go to now ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.  Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth eaten.
Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. You have heaped treasure together for the last days."
James 5:1-3 ;     Lamentations 4:1 ;      Ezekiel 7:19 ;       Zephaniah 1:18.

As Dr. David Jeremiah always says: "We should be on the God-standard, more so than the gold-standard".
"I counsel thee to buy of Me gold tried-in-the-fire." Revelation 3:18.

"When He hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold" Job 23: 10


The 4th Horseman of the Apocalypse speaks of death ...... followed by hell. Rev. 6:8 Fourth Seal
There will be pandemic plagues  ---incurable, and drug-resistant
diseases, unhealthy and unhygienic conditions etc.
"And I looked and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was "DEATH" ……and "HELL" followed with him.

As of April 2017 the world’s population has been recorded at 7.5 Billion people
"And power was given to them over the 4th part of the earth
( 1/4 of 7.5 billion people = 1 and 3/4  billion people killed .... unfathomable )
to kill with sword, (war, crime, terrorism, anarchy)
and with hunger (malnutrition, genetically-engineered food, starvation, famine)
and with death (diseases, epidemics, super bugs, Aids, HIV, radiation, Cancer, TB, chemical and biological warfare, toxins, pollutants, e-coli , plagues...germs, viruses, etc.
and with the beasts of the earth (predatory animals: bears, wolves, animal behavior changing due to sun's radiation; rodents (mice, rats , vermin), insects, mosquitoes, lice, fleas, flies, pests etc.

Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem  http://hopetotheend.com/suicide.html

Heat, drought turning animals into wild
( feral ) killers
The wolf-sized dogs, which have reached plague proportions in the Snowy Mountains and South Coast regions, are becoming increasingly bold and have reportedly begun stalking farmers. http://news.com.au/common/story_page/0,4057,10141939%255E421,00.html

Matthew 24:7 "and pestilences.....all these are the beginning of sorrows"

Lately, it seems that animals and insects are getting more aggressive due to solar flares and higher temperatures. And because of drought conditions, many bears, coyotes, foxes and wild life are invading our neighborhoods and towns. New York City now has more rats than population and rats can cause the hanta virus and the plague.

That is why now---more than ever---we need Scriptural Healing (spiritual healing)
Mark 16:18 "they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover"
For further insight into healing, please see:

The above article also speaks of government vaccination programs, which are becoming mandated.

These diseases are on the increase even now.


5th Seal... Persecution of the Righteous --Souls Under the Altar (martyred) ;
"How Long, O Lord?" Rev. 6:9-11

Isaiah 6:11 and 12 gives us the answer to "how long".
  http://www.blueletterbible.org/Bible.cfm?b=Isa&c=6&v=11&t=KJV#11

Persecution of the Godly is already taking place in Hindu, Communist and Islamic nations.  Voice of the Martyrs
http://www.persecution.com/
Even America is suffering anti-Christian persecution: Peducah, Littleton, Fort Worth etc.
Please see: "Spiritual Warfare"
hopetotheend.com/little.html [includes Chinese persecution]

"I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the Word of God: believing in the Bible, Scripture, the 10 Commandments etc.
and for the testimony which they held (Judeo-Christian lifestyle, witnessing)
"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." Rev. 6:10. 11.

Matthew 24:9-13 "Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and you shall be hated of all
nations for My name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another....and because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved."

6th Seal ....... Major Phenomenon ....... Please see hopetotheend.com/phenom.html 
The Sixth Seal alone
contains the following SIX horrendous judgments:

#1. a GREAT EARTHQUAKE --- Rev. 6:12 and
Isaiah 24:19, 20 "the earth is moved exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard."
see also Magog-war quake :
Ezekiel 38: 19, 20

Summary of Endtime earthquakes by Bob Anderson --
An earthquake normally lasts less than 30 seconds, but the December 26 [ 2004 ] earthquake lasted at least 10 minutes, and had a magnitude between 9.0 and 9.3. Aftershocks have raked the area for the last four months. All the phenomena associated with worldwide tectonic plate movements were graphically described by the prophet Isaiah and by Jesus in many of his statements.
The single event in the December episode in the earth’s crust in the East Indies will be magnified by a multiplicity of similar events, which will lead to worldwide tectonic chaos. Scientists were amazed that the entire earth vibrated.

12-26-04 Quake ( Sumatra) caused an 800 mile gash in the earth's surface
Series of ruptures
The earthquake was somewhat unprecedented in our history of trying to understand earthquakes," said Thorne Lay, chairman of the Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS) and a seismologist at the University of California at Santa Cruz
It's fast-and-slow rupturing both struck the Earth like a bell and then bowed it like a cello string to produce a louder and clearer ringing of the planet than ever before observed.
All the rupturing, movement and ringing of the Earth have now been combined to re-calculate the total energy released by the original quake, Park explained. The result is a new magnitude rating of 9.15, double the power of the 9.0 rating that was last officially announced.   http://dsc.discovery.com/news/briefs/20050516/quakestudy.html

#2. Followed by VOLCANIC activity: ---- black sun; red moon

If Yellowstone  volcano blows, it would cause :
 
* complete darkness for several days
 
* everything would be killed within 100 mile radius
 
* ash would be 10 feet high for 1,000s of miles
 
* 2/3rds of the U.S. would be uninhabitable
 
* Food would be scarce since farming would be almost impossible from
this "volcanic winter"
 
* Temperatures would fall by approximately 20 degrees around the
world, producing famines.
http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/july2017/seeker79-2.htm

Will the under water volcano "East Pacific Rise" blow, causing many other volcanoes to explode ? (Located off South America's west-coast). It is the  largest underwater volcano.
Will many volcanoes going off at once ? "Popo" in Mexico, Yellowstone of Idaho-Wyoming, Montana etc. ?

RING OF FIRE
http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/sci/tech/newsid_136000/136248.stm

Joel 2:31"The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come."

Acts 2:19, 20 "And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke:
the sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood,
before that great and notable day of the Lord come.
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord
shall be saved."

Why does Joel --speaking by way of the Holy Spirit, and repeated in Acts by Peter --emphasize the fact that this event takes place
BEFORE the Day of the Lord ? We believe it is to let Christians know that we will be here for the 6th Seal judgements.
The word
"before" is a very important word in Joel's prophecy.

Revelation 6:12 "And the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood".

As you can see from the above, verse 12 of Revelation Chapter 6 is
BEFORE verses 14-17 .
Rev. 6 : 14-17 possibly refers to the Magog War, more fully detailed in
Rev. Ch. 8 and 9.
The final verse of Rev. Chapter 6 refers to the Day of the Lord, which is yet to come, and is signified by the
TRUMPET judgements of Revelation Chapter 8. But more of that later, when we get to the section called "The Day of the Lord".

Will there be TSUNAMI'S (Gigantic Killer Waves from the Ocean ) at this time?

#3..."And the stars of heaven fell to the earth "(untimely) Rev. 6:13
"when she is shaken of
a mighty wind"

Will satellites fall from the heavens ?

Meteors ... Elenin...Niburu --
http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/aug2011/jennie817-1.htm

solar "wind"; solar flares (CME's) affecting satellites

http://www.spaceweather.com/ and http://spacescience.com

Will a solar flare ( producing a mighty wind ) magnetize an asteroid belt ( Pleaides, Leonids ??) to come into the path of our planet ?
This would be untimely since the original course was not in our path.


Pressure from Solar radiation

" The sun continuously radiates around itself energy in the form of electromagnetic waves. The medium of these waves is photons. When these hit the surface, they undergo a pressure which gives a force, similar to that, when the wind exerts pressure on the sails of a boat. These infinitesimal forces, finish by affecting the movements of the bodies on which they exert pressure or in the case of a satellite in orbit, by imperceptibly modifying its path."

Galactic Dust Storm to alter magnetic field
The Sun's shifting magnetic field is set to focus a decade-long storm of galactic dust grains towards the inner Solar System, including Earth.
The effect this will have on our planet - if any - is unknown.
the magnetic field should actually channel the dust inwards. (Ed. note: towards earth )

three times more galactic dust is now entering the Solar System than during the 1990s.
The effects of space dust on the Earth are currently unknown, but hotly debated. Every year, about 40,000 tonnes of cosmic debris fall onto the Earth, much of it creating meteors.

This particular judgement appears to be phenomenon in the upper atmosphere, like
a meteor-shower. But then one has to take into consideration the line:
"even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of
a mighty wind." Rev. 6:13.

"The magnetic storms were accompanied by high solar winds that affect interplanetary magnetic fields. These conditions simultaneously cause flux in the earth's magnetic fields and are capable of pushing the meteor in the earth's atmosphere."

#4. Limited Nuclear War "And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together (bomb)
Most likely this is a nuclear bomb explosion ...a pre-emptive strike from North Korea?
Rev. 6:14(a) seems to correlate with Jeremiah 50:3. At least that is the way we see it.
This nuclear attack comes from a single nation....from "the North" (North Korea ?? )
Please see Jeremiah 50:3.

Even though a single nation is used to stop the USA from reacting to the Gog-Magog war of Ezekiel 38, 39, there will be war in the Mideast during the trumpet judgements.

Magnetic Field changing : Flip-flop of earth
The changes "may suggest the possibility of an upcoming
reversal of the geomagnetic field," said study co-author Mioara Mandea, a scientist at the German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam.

Inner Core
A simulation model monitoring the recent seismic disturbances – earthquakes and volcanoes show extreme disturbance in the outer and inner core of the earth. The interaction of the inner core and the rest of the earth cause the electromagnetic properties of the earth. The ongoing polar reversal is accelerating and will eventually have reverse polarity in North and South pole. According to the simulation model, the earth’s inner core and outer core is going through some serious disturbances. That in turn is influencing the viscous semi fluid mantle. When that happens, the convection within mantle increases substantially. That is also influenced by solar polar reversal. In our modern age we have not experienced a simultaneous solar and terrestrial polar reversal. Between now and 2012, these disturbances will keep increasing making earth’s crust and tectonic plates very disturbed causing severe volcanoes and earthquakes

Earth Wobbles; Region dislocated on maps -- Dec. 28, 2004 ( 9.0 Quake Indian Ocean )
The following Quake dislocated islands regionally, or locally. We have yet to see the Quake that dislocated every mountain and island. This will take place BEFORE the 7 Trumpet judgements of Rev. 8 and 9.
An earthquake that unleashed deadly tidal waves on Asia was so powerful it made the Earth wobble on its axis and permanently altered the regional map, US geophysicists said.
The 9.0-magnitude temblor that struck 250 kilometers (155 miles) southeast of Sumatra island Sunday ( Dec. 26, 2004)
may have moved small islands as much as 20 meters (66 feet), according to one expert.
"That earthquake has changed the map," US Geological Survey expert Ken Hudnut told AFP
In addition, the energy released as the two sides of the undersea fault slipped against each other made the Earth wobble on its axis, Hudnut said.

PLANET VIBRATING -- Dec. 29, 2004 --Joyce Morrison
An Associated Press article said Enzo Boschi, the head of Italy's National Geophysics Institute, likened the quake's power to detonating a million atomic bombs the size of those dropped on Japan during World War II, and said the shaking was so powerful it even disturbed the Earth's rotation.
"All the planet is vibrating" from the quake, he told Italian state radio. Other scientists said it was too early to say whether the rotation was affected by the quake.

"The floodgates of Heaven are opened, the foundations of the earth shake. The earth is broken up, the earth is split asunder, the earth is shaken thoroughly. The earth reels like a drunkard, it sways like a hut in the wind; so heavy upon it is the guilt of it's rebellion that it falls - never to rise again." Isaiah 24:18-20 NIV.

1,500 Homing Pigeons Get Lost During Race - July 22, 2004
"I have worked with pigeons since 1960 and have never experienced anything like this," Nilsson said, adding that the birds might have been thrown off course by subtle changes in the earth's magnetic field.
The pigeons have a natural homing instinct and are believed to navigate by the sun and the magnetic waves of the earth, Nilsson said.

Will Compasses Point South ?

The collapse of the Earth's magnetic field, which both guards the planet and guides many of its creatures, appears to have started in earnest about 150 years ago. The field's strength has waned 10 to 15 percent, and the deterioration has accelerated of late, increasing debate over whether it portends a reversal of the lines of magnetic force that normally envelop the Earth.

During a reversal, the main field weakens, almost vanishes, then reappears with opposite polarity. Afterward, compass needles that normally point north would point south, and during the thousands of years of transition, much in the heavens and Earth would go askew.
A reversal could knock out power grids,
the rapid decline in magnetic strength is already damaging satellites.

On a planetary scale, the magnetic field helps shield the Earth from solar winds and storms of deadly particles. Its so-called magnetosphere extends out 37,000 miles from Earth's sunlit side and much farther behind the planet, forming a cometlike tail. Among other things, the field's collapse, scientists say, could let in bursts of radiation, causing a variety of disruptions.

Large Change in Earth's Gravity
Scientists believe movements of mass cause this recent change from the high latitudes to the equator. Such large changes may be caused by climate change, but could also be part of normal long-period climatic variation. "The three areas that can trigger large changes in the Earth's gravitational field are oceans, polar and glacial ice, and atmosphere," Cox said. http://www.gsfc.nasa.gov/topstory/20020801gravityfield.html

Fatal Attraction--Guardian--
The Earth could be about to turn upside down. The planet's magnetic field is showing signs of wanting to make a gigantic somersault, so that magnetic north heads towards Antarctica, and magnetic south goes north. Compasses will point the wrong way, and migrating birds, fish and turtles are going to be very confused.
Just when this will happen, how long it will take and what the consequences will be, is difficult to fathom.
What is not in doubt, though, is that it will happen.


We know the magnetic polarity goes topsy-turvy from rocks on the bed of the Atlantic Ocean. Along the middle of the Atlantic runs a gigantic crack from which lava oozes. As the lava solidifies into rock, it records the Earth's magnetic polarity at the time. These records show that we are due for another flip about now. But the Earth does not keep a regular rhythm, so no one could make a prediction based on past performance alone. There is, however, more convincing proof that we are heading for a tumble.

# 6. FEAR ... 'the king of terrors" Job 18: 11 and 14
A CHRISTIAN nation shows fear of the wrath of the LAMB
( Jesus)

If limited nuclear war were to take place at this time (North Korea) , that would explain why people are hiding in "the dens and in the rocks of the mountains".
Government bunker Jackson, Wyoming
Rev. 6:15... hiding in bunkers (bomb shelters, war rooms, y2k dens, "caves")
Rev. 6:16.... Because of the reference to "the wrath of the Lamb", this is obviously a Christian nation receiving a 1st strike (from North Korea). In particularly these are Christians speaking, who are well versed in prophetic passages. Non-believers know nothing about the Lamb. It is something to consider.

Another great fact, we believe, that can be perceived from Revelation Chapter 6, is that there will be tremendous judgements and upheavals upon earth BEFORE the Rapture takes place. All of the above seal-judgements precede the Day of the Lord ( judgement), which for us is also the same day as the  "Day of Christ"(our Rapture) Philippians 1. Please see
hopetotheend.com/2Thess.html and hopetotheend.com/hope.html for further explanation.

Therefore we can conclude that we will all be here for the North Korean strike upon the USA before we go in the Rapture. At least that is how we see it.

Chapter 6 ends with the Sixth Seal , and with the statement :
"For the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand ?"
Let us now look at the 7th Seal which ushers in the Seven Trumpet Judgements and the MidEast war.
The Seventh Seal is opened in Chapter Eight of Revelation.

Oh Sinner man, where you going to run to, all on that day ?

THE SEVENTH SEAL

"And when He ( the Lamb Jesus) had opened the Seventh Seal there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour . And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets."
Rev. 8:1, 2.
Thus begins the Seven Trumpet Judgements:

MAGOG WAR ... Ezekiel 38, 39 and Revelation 8 and 9
Involving North Korea, Russia and confederates, Israel and the U.S.


America possibly attacked by North Korea : first part of Magog War

Russia--greatest nuclear superpower on earth with 8200 nuclear warheads --April 27, 2004
Military installations, major cities prime targets.
http://www.newsmax.com/archives/articles/2004/4/26/163503.shtml
Takes 30 minutes to reach target.


FIRST FOUR TRUMPET JUDGEMENTS of REVELATION 8
Results of radiation fallout from a limited nuclear war ( Magog ? ) :

#1- trees and grasses are burned up --1/3 of them --- by hail and fire mingled with blood

#2- A "mountain"---meaning "government" --- is cast into the sea.
Is North Korea dissolved into the Korean Bay, or Yellow Sea or Sea of Japan ? Time will tell.

Since North Korea will aim for BOTH the United States AND our forces in the Far East, then perhaps our Navy will suffer causalities in the Oriental seas.
--- 1/3 part of the sea becomes blood, 1/3 of sea life dies and 1/3 of ships are destroyed.
For more info: please see "The Russian Bear"
hopetotheend.com/ch3p1.html

#3- Rivers and water tables ---1/3 of them-- are turned into blood .
.......This is possibly caused by a nuclear-tipped missile which spreads contamination by radiation. Many people ........will then die from drinking that contaminated, radiated water which has seeped into the ground table.

Or perhaps North Korea will strategically attack our nuclear reactor sites, and then RADIATION will be carried across the the United States by a "destroying wind". Please see Jeremiah 51:1; Rev. 7:1

#4- A Shrouded Earth: 1/3 less of day light , 1/3 less of moonlight and 1/3 less of starlight. This most likely will be caused by the dust and the debris littered upon the horizon from the nuclear wars. This is what is referred to as a "nuclear-winter", if you will, whereby our illumination is diminished by one-third, both night and day.

This parallels the passage that says "and unless those days be shortened, there should no flesh be saved"
( Matthew 24:22 )
Unless we had God's protection through this dark, murky cloud covering our horizon, mankind would not be able to survive the dosage of radiation (UVL) in the atmosphere.
" I AM thy shield and exceeding great reward" Genesis 15:1
Even in judgement, God shows mercy.
"O Lord ... in wrath remember mercy." Habakkuk 3:2

"Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD ! to what end is it for you?
The day of the LORD is darkness, and not light.....
Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it ? "
Amos 5: 18 + 20

"The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness......neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD's wrath." Zephaniah 1 :14, 15 +18

Will we experience " a darkness which can be felt " Exodus 10:21 ?? A "Nuclear Winter " ?
(perhaps for 3 days until the dust settles, as is hinted in Exodus 10: 22, 23
)


Last Three Trumpets, also called "WOES", of Revelation Chapter 9
1- the angel of the bottomless pit (abyss of germ warfare)... Revelation 9:11
2- the 4 angels loosed from the Euphrates to allow for Asian wars .... Revelation 9:15
3- and finally the demonic-angel : Satan himself, the devil (also called "the Dragon") is cast from his position in the second heaven down to earth.
Revelation 12: 12
Formerly he was "the prince of the power of the air" Ephesians 2:2

FIRST WOE: ABADDON ..... GERM WARFARE / TERRORISM
"Woe, woe, woe, to the inhibiters of the earth by REASON of the other voices of the trumpet of the 3 angels which are yet to sound !" Rev. 8:13

It is our belief that the 5th trumpet is a biological-chemical attack that could take place immediately within the aftermath of the war described by the first four trumpets. 

Trumpet # 5 : FIRST WOE ---a Trumpet describing germ warfare ....Rev. 9:1-12

 
A segment of people from a godless nation ("have not the seal of God in their foreheads" ) receive
biological warfare most likely, that greatly harms them for 5 months without dying. They will long to die.
What nation will perpetrate this horror upon the godless nation ?

Such hideousness, biological-chemical germ warfare, could only come out of the pits of hell, whose leader's name is "Apollyon" or "Abaddon". In English, he is called "The Destroyer". (or waster)
For more information on bio-chem warfare, please see:
hopetotheend.com/bcterror.html

Rev. 9:11 hints that WMD will come from "Abaddon"... a mere stone's throw from Basra, Iraq.
Map of Basra, Iraq showing Abaddon http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/middle_east_and_asia/iraq_wall_det_2003.jpg

Possible reason why it is called in the GREEK "Apollyon"

http://menewsline.com/stories/2004/april/04_29_4.html
and also for this reason :

and for this reason http://www.sky.com/skynews/article/0,,30000-13069655,00.html

SECOND WOE : 4 Angels LOOSED ...
releasing the ARMIES of the EAST (from China to Turkey)
Consecutive Wars Please see hopetotheend.com/7thunders.html for details.

Trumpet #6: SECOND WOE is a
preparatory-trumpet announcing the diminishing of the
Euphrates River
.
This drying up of the Euphrates River ( the great Eastern divide) starting at mid-trib
prepares the way for the armies of the East to advance toward Israel. This westward advancement will involve wars over a period of a couple of years, as we see it. Such Asian nuclear wars could include India-Pakistan and China-Taiwan. These, and other wars , would all preclude Armageddon .

More and more wars will continue until an hour and a day and a month and a year when the 200 million man army from China marches Westward, past the dried-up Euphrates River and unto the Jezreel Valley of Israel at the end of the Great Tribulation. All toll, the number of people who die from these Asian wars are 2 Billion, or 1/3 of mankind.... 1 out of every 3 people will not survive these wars.

All of these world-wide conflagrations most likely constitute the SECOND WOE,
(Revelation 11:14) as nuclear-warhead-missiles dart around the globe, during the great tribulation.

Will this be the time that the
China-Taiwan war will take place ?
Will this be the time that the
India-Pakistan war will take place.

These wars could be at this time, or later. Only time will tell.
hopetotheend.com/7thunders.html
The 6th Trumpet heralds the beginning of this phase, not necessarily the actuality.

THIRD WOE: SATAN (DRAGON) CAST TO EARTH ... Revelation 12:7-17
 



The Final 7th Trumpet: Rev. 10: 5--7

The 7th trumpet is also the LAST TRUMP, in the series of seven, and therefore it is our homegoing.
.Please see First Corinthians 15: 51, 52.

It is our belief that our  homegoing is simultaneous with the Magog war of Ezekiel 38 and 39 . Since these two events are both at this same time (simultaneous) , then Rev. 11:15-19 constitutes the same day known as:
"The Day of the Lord" (judgement, for those left behind) and it is also "The Day of Christ"
(our rapture-deliverance for all wise virgins of Matthew 25: 1-12)
Please see 2nd Thessalonians 1: 7, 8 ); also "same day" Luke 17:29.
In Noah's deliverance, the ark went up at the same time as the floods poured down.

Day of the LORD and Day of CHRIST both one and the same DAY
As we see it, the Day of the Lord ( great judgement ) and the
"Day of Christ"( 2 Thessalonians 2: 2 kjv....Day of our deliverance-Rapture)
are one and the same day. Please see Luke 17:29 "same day"
ONLY the KJV (original Bible ) uses the correct term " Day of Christ"; which is vastly different in meaning from the "Day of the Lord".

"Pray always that ye be counted worthy to escape all these things" Luke 21:36
Please see
hopetotheend.com/2Thess2.html and hopetotheend.com/hope.html for further explanation of "Day of the Lord "

THE LAST TRUMP
We believe that all these trumpets are sounded before the Rapture takes place, for we are the "last trump"
(the seventh trumpet) . 1 Corinthians 15:52
It is our belief that all 6 of the preceding trumpets are sounded first, and then the long 7th trumpet ,
"Tekiah Gedolah", is sounded last.
hopetotheend.com/trumpet.html
In other words, it is our belief that the Church is here to witness the North Korean attack upon the U.S. and that we are also here during the Levant-Israeli conflict Psalm 83), and that we are simultaneous with the MidEast War
(Magog War). Some of these these confrontations take place before we go, as we see it.

When finally it is time for our Rapture, it will be a dual event--- our translation and WW 3 upon earth.
Not only will there be WW 3 (Magog War) here on planet earth, but there will be war also in the heavens (Rev.12 ).
Satan will not give up his territory to the Christian-Rapture in his domain without a severe struggle. Satan is called the "prince of the power of the air" Ephesians 2:2.
This most likely is the time that Michael and his angels defeat Satan and his angels:

"And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven" Rev. 12: 7, 8.
"And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him". Rev. 12: 9
"
WOE to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea ! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time." Rev. 12: 12

This could well be the implication found in Hebrews 12:26-29
"Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven."
And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain."

GOING OUT IN A BLAZE OF GLORY

As the bombs fall --- or shortly thereafter-- joyfully we rise to meet the Lord in the air.
This is exemplified by the rain which fell in Noah's day : Noah and company arose with the ark.
This is also exemplified by the brimstone and fire which fell upon Sodom and Gomorrah,:
Lot and associates escaped. Please see Genesis 19: 22.
Please see Luke 17: 26-29..."But the SAME DAY that Lot went out of Sodom,
it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all".
And just like in Exodus 14, the Hebrews escaped; but Pharoah's armies were judged. (same day).

So here too Judgement and Deliverance are simultaneous.
Please see
2 Thessalonians 1: 7, 8...
"And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that
1. Know not God (non-Believers...evolutionists, humanists, atheists etc.)
2. and that obey not the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ."
(
nominal Christians who are not under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, and who are not subject to the leading of the Holy Spirit).

At that time:
"One will be taken (in the rapture...no body left behind...see 2 Kings 2: 16-18 )
and one will be left" (left behind )
some having died in these judgements and their dead bodies will be left behind.

Where the many corpses are, "there will the "eagles" will be gathered.

"For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together." Matthew 24:28
Also "eagles" could have the double meaning of patrolling forces itemizing data on the bodies.

For "eagles", please see graphic and explanation at
hopetotheend.com/mlaw3.html
Could this refer to Western forces both domestic and foreign ?

Trumpets have always had two different meanings in the Bible :
1. They were a call to battle ....."For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound,
who shall prepare himself to the battle?" 1 Corinthians 14:8

2. And the trumpet blast was also a call to assemble together to meet with God / journey forth ....
(Tekiah Gedolah...long sound) -- Exodus 19:13; Numbers 10:1-3.

Please compare the following verse from Joshua with the verse from First Thessalonians 4 and see the concept of war at the same time as ascending upward:
The emphasis here is upon
the trumpet sound---not upon date-setting.
"And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram's horn (SHOFAR)
(Tekiah Gedolah) "AND when you hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people will shout with
a great shout;
and the wall of the city shall fall down flat
( also Ezekiel 38:20 b),
and the people shall
ascend up every man straight before him." JOSHUA 6:5

Compare this with :

"For the LORD HIMSELF shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trump of God and the dead in Christ shall rise first.
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Wherefore comfort one another with these words." 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18


"Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound" Psalm 89:15


THE LORD HIMSELF

Because cataclysmic wars will be going on both here on earth and also in the heavenlies, then that is why it is so necessary for the LORD HIMSELF to come and meet us in the air. The shout of victory will go forth, and Michael the archangel and his good angels will fight off the demonic-angels in the heavenlies, as we transcend upward to meet the LORD.

While the victory shout is being given in the second heaven, the first heaven is lauding this epic event:
"The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord,
and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever."

( No more wickedness in high places. They are being cast down at the time of our Rapture.)

"And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, Saying,
"We give thee THANKS. O Lord God Almighty (El-Shaddai) which art, and wast, and art to come;
because Thou hast taken to Thee Thy great power, and hast reigned (Revelation 11:15-17)

"And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven,
"Now is come Salvation, and strength (gabor), and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ (Anointed One):
for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night....
"Therefore rejoice ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them" Revelation 12:11, 12


What a spectacular Rapture that will be !! While the war in the heavenlies is being fought, and while war on earth is also being fought, we will rise to meet our Bridegroom and our Prince of Peace in the air, "and thus we shall ever be with the Lord". Alleluia !! Even so, Come quickly Lord Jesus !!

Sixth Seals explained by J Mueke http://hopetotheend.com/jmuecke.html


Just a thought:
After W W 1...there was The League of Nations.
After W W 2 ....there was The United Nations.
Will W W 3 bring in the New World Order and The 666 Antichrist System ?

Will W W 3 be the "Day of the Lord" ? ? ( See Zephaniah Chapter 1)

Hopefully, The Day of the Lord will also be
the " Day of Christ " ? (our Rapture)
2 Thessalonians 2: 2 (kjv, authorized)

Other references : "day of Christ".... 2 Thess. 2:2 ; Philippians 1:10; Philippians 2:16
"day of Jesus Christ"..... Philippians 1: 6
"day of the Lord Jesus"..... 1 Corinthians 5:5; 2 Corinthians 1:14;
"that day".... 1 Timothy 1:12; ......."the day"... Hebrews 10:5

"Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.
For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken"

Proverbs 3: 25, 26
