Revelation Chapter 6
Remember to read the book of Daniel
More notes from class in Revelation
Chapter 6-19 describe the 7 yr Tribulation period coming upon the whole world
Jesus called it the hour of Temptation on the whole world
Tribulation is result of mankind’s sin and rebellion against the Lord God and His word.
The result of sin Jeremiah 2:17-19
Jer 2:17 Hast thou not procured this unto thyself, in that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God, when he led thee by the way?
Jer 2:18 And now what hast thou to do in the way of Egypt, to drink the waters of Sihor? or what hast thou to do in the way of Assyria, to drink the waters of the river?
It’s not God’s fault sinful man has brought it on himself
The First Seal (Revelation 6:1-2)
Enter ….The Anti Christ
Remember Satan is an imitator
First Seal Begins the Tribulation...Jesus is at the throne (Standing)
The church is now in heaven and Jesus no longer sitting and making intercession for us.. no more need for we are at His side!
(Unleashing the wrath of God)
The Lamb who is worthy.. Jesus
White Horse symbol of victory
Roman leaders world tide in on a white horse after this victory against enemies
“STEPHANOS”- wreath or garland of a winner
Victor of Olympic games received a lesser crown than a diadem which Jesus will wear
“DIADEM” A Kingly Crown which Jesus will return the prophecy of Zechariah comes about in Revelation 19
Zec 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
Rev 19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
Rev 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
Rev 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
Rev 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
Rev 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
Rev 19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
Not Jesus on this Horse (Revelation 6:1-2)
Wrong Kind of crown
Brings false peace not real peace
Jesus in heaven and is in control of all events and Opens First Seal
Jesus return is a triumphant one and will stop war and sits on the throne of David
Jesus Christ returns at the end of Tribulation
Anti-Christ on White Horse
After the rapture of Church
First Seal opened by Jesus in heaven
First person to ride forth is Anti Christ bringing a temporary peace to the Middle East
He conquers Europe by uniting then European Nations
And finally the world under 666 world unity
Read Daniel Chapters 7-12 & Rev. 13 One world religion, government & economy
Rev 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
Rev 13:2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
Rev 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
Rev 13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
Rev 13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
Rev 13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
Rev 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
Rev 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
Rev 13:9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
Rev 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.
Rev 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
Rev 13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
Rev 13:13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
Rev 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.
Rev 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.
Rev 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
Rev 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Rev 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.
Daniel the Prophet Revelation 6:1-2
Prince will come making a 7 year peace treaty with Israel and her enemies
II Thessalonians 2:11
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
World will be relieved
Dan 8:25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.
By Peace the Anti Christ will deceive many
Being lulled into a false sense of security they will be fooled and destroyed
The Anti Christ keeps BAD company
The Second Seal Revelation 6:3-4
Opened Second seal…in rides the Red Horse
Red Horse follows the Anti Christ
Power was given to him to take peace for the earth
Anti Christ will bring false Temporary peace (not lasting peace)
There has not been a full year of peace on earth since Jesus ascended to Heaven
Red Horse of War
Given a great small sword
Sword= “machaira” small sword like dagger
This is not a war implement (Enemy not thinking major Battle)
Possibly Kidnappings, hostage situations, terrorism, roadside bombings
IED= “Improvised Explosive Devices”
Acts of violence around the world, there is coming a time of worldwide terror.
Peace at any Cost
Anyone who believes peace can be achieved through political means is fooling themselves
(The Koran requires what they consider to be infidels to be killed)
James 4:1 From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?
War comes from our own lusts, envy, and jealousy
The Third Seal Revelation 6:5-6
Jesus Opens third seal and in rides…Black Horse with Balances
Black Horse indicates mourning
Rider is carrying a set of scales
Signifies scarcity of food and supplies
Picture of famine…which often follows war
Economic Disruptions of war
Full Days Wage
Would not buy a complete meal
Minimum wage in WA today 7.50 per hour..40 hours= $60.00
That would still not be enough for one meal
Yet oil and wine…(the luxuries of life) will be spared
(cosmetics and liquor/ Vanity and drinking
Psalm 51:11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
The Holy Spirit will go back to an Old Testament type of working (coming upon a believer)
The Fourth Seal Revelation 6:7-8
Sin stinks and the stench will rise to the throne of God
In Rides the PALE Horse
Pale Horse a pukey pale yellowish green color
Only rider with a name “DEATH” and Hell to follow
Pestilence , war and famine
¼ of all living people will die
Almost 7 Billion on earth now = 1.750,000,000 will die
Almost 2 BILLION
Death followed by Hell
Hell: Hades= The place where the spirit goes If that person is lost (without Jesus)
NOT THE LAKE OF FIRE
Place of torment waiting for judgment
Great white throne judgment (The Sentencing)
Luke 16:23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
The Fifth Seal Revelation 6:9-11
Under the altar are the souls of martyrs
The Altar in Heaven…
Isa 6:6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
Isa 6:7 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.
Isa 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
There are souls under the altar in Heaven
These DO NOT have Resurrected bodies
They are not the Church or the BRIDE of Christ
They are those slain for their faith in Christ
Tribulation Martyrs and Old Testament Martyrs are under the altar in Heaven crying out to God (Altar where Jesus blood is sprinkled)
How long Oh Lord till You avenge our blood?
(Age of Grace over, now LAW) (Get ‘em Lord, knock their teeth out)
The church would cry out for MERCY, not VENGANCE
God’s Holy Law
We the Bride carry the Mercy Seat
Law requires vengeance and pleads for justice
The souls under the altar were given white robes
Told to be patient for many more will die…millions
(The next Big Revival)
The sixth Seal Revelation 6:12
A Great Earthquake
Unprecedented super natural geographical disturbances
Encompasses entire Universe!
Including all of Creation
Some suggest it describes a nuclear winter like Ezekiel 38 & 39
Sun darkened so much with dust in the atmosphere as well as outer space to block out light and heat
Moon became as blood (Pollution sunset?)
Stars fall to earth like ripe figs
Tectonic plates completely shifting (As in the days of Noah?)
Peleg lived during the days of Noah.
1Ch 1:19 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of the one was Peleg; because in his days the earth was divided: (split) and his brother's name was Joktan.
You can believe this is GOD!
Heavens rolled Back like scroll Revelation 6:14
At this time Mother nature forgets to take her birth control pills :)
Universe rolled back like a scroll
Nuclear Plumes>>> look like a scroll rolling back
Hubble Telescope>>>found out Universe is shaped like a scroll
Mountains and islands are all moved out of their existing places
Earthquakes…tsunamis world wide!
Not Global Warming_ BUT Wrath of God
BUT WAIT THERE’ MORE…
Still one more seal to come
(Everyone hid themselves)
Crying out to the Rocks Revelation 6:15-17
“Tree huggers cry out to Mother nature” she will not be able to save you!
Mankind STILL refuses to cry out to God
Many still worship Nature (Trees and rocks) NOT God
Hearts are so hardened
From He that sits on the throne
So hard hearted they refuse to repent
Hide us from anger of the Lamb
Can you picture an angry Lamb?
The great day of His Wrath is come on the earth
Wrath of God
Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Rom 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Rom 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Rom 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
Rom 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
All of God’s wrath and fury is revealed in Jesus
Wrath of Lamb
Psa 2:10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
Psa 2:11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
Psa 2:12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
Blessed are they who TRUST IN HIM
Fall on the stone and you will be broken
Stone falls on you and you will be crushed
War against Sin
God declared war long ago
Will take the church out of and away from the wrath of God
The World continues to reject God’s peace and grace
War against sin
Jesus is His Dearly beloved Son…Listen to HIM!
God’s wrath will be poured out completely
