The scroll with seven seals.
7
Rev 51 I saw in the right hand of Him who sat
on the throne a scroll written inside and on the
back, sealed up with seven seals. Rev 52 And I
saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice,
"Who is worthy to open the scroll and to break
its seals?"
8
Rev 55 and one of the elders said to me, "Stop
weeping behold, the Lion that is from the tribe
of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome so as
to open the book and its seven seals."
9
Rev 56 And I saw between the throne (with the
four living creatures) and the elders a Lamb
standing, as if slain, having seven horns and
seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God,
sent out into all the earth. Rev 57 And He
came and took the book out of the right hand of
Him who sat on the throne.
  • Jesus paid the price to redeem us and the world
    from Satan He could open the seals because He
    had the authority to do so.
  • Who had dominion over the earth now?

10
In the beginning, God gave the earth to
mankindGen 126 Then God said, "Let Us make
man in Our image, according to Our likeness and
let them rule over the fish of the sea and over
the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over
all the earth, and over every creeping thing that
creeps on the earth."
11
God gave us all authority over the earth with
only one ruleGen 31 Now the serpent was more
crafty than any beast of the field which the LORD
God had made. And he said to the woman, "Indeed,
has God said, 'You shall not eat from any tree of
the garden'?"
12
Gen 32 The woman said to the serpent, "From the
fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat Gen
33 but from the fruit of the tree which is in
the middle of the garden, God has said, 'You
shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will
die.'" Gen 34 The serpent said to the woman,
"You surely will not die! Gen 35 "For God
knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes
will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing
good and evil."
13
Satan became the ruler of this world at this
point when man broke covenant with God and was
cast out of the garden.Title deed of the earth
was given from man to Satan.
14
Mat 48 Again, the devil took Him to a very
high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of
the world and their glory Mat 49 and he said
to Him, "All these things I will give You, if You
fall down and worship me."
15
Act 2618 to open their eyes so that they may
turn from darkness to light and from the dominion
of Satan to God, that they may receive
forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among
those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.'
  • Now, the Earth is Satans dominion

16
When we are born again, we come out of Satans
domainPhp 320 For our citizenship is in
heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a
Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ Satan will give
his dominion to the Antichrist
17
Rev 132 And the beast which I saw was like a
leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear,
and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the
dragon gave him his power and his throne and
great authority.
  • But Jesus paid the price for the earth and He
    will have dominion!
  • But until then the breaking of the sixth seal
    when we are revealed as the sons of God, even
    the earth itself cries out for a redeemer from
    Satan and his wicked reign

18
Joh 1228 "Father, glorify Your name." Then a
voice came out of heaven "I have both glorified
it, and will glorify it again." Joh 1229 So
the crowd of people who stood by and heard it
were saying that it had thundered others were
saying, "An angel has spoken to Him." Joh 1230
Jesus answered and said, "This voice has not come
for My sake, but for your sakes. Joh 1231 "Now
judgment is upon this world now the ruler of
this world will be cast out. Joh 1232 "And I,
if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all
men to Myself."
  • Jesus said this because it was finished at the
    cross, but He doesnt take back the earth until
    the proper time

19
Rom 819 For the anxious longing of the creation
waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of
God. Rom 820 For the creation was subjected to
futility, not willingly, but because of Him who
subjected it, in hope Rom 821 that the
creation itself also will be set free from its
slavery to corruption into the freedom of the
glory of the children of God. Rom 822 For we
know that the whole creation groans and suffers
the pains of childbirth together until now. Rom
823 And not only this, but also we ourselves,
having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we
ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly
for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our
body.
  • And Jesus, when He breaks that final seal, will
    take it back!

20
Dan 724 'As for the ten horns, out of this
kingdom ten kings will arise and another will
arise after them, and he will be different from
the previous ones and will subdue three kings.
Dan 725 'He will speak out against the Most
High and wear down the saints of the Highest One,
and he will intend to make alterations in times
and in law and they will be given into his hand
for a time, times, and half a time. Dan 726
'But the court will sit for judgment, and his
dominion will be taken away, annihilated and
destroyed forever. Dan 727 'Then the
sovereignty, the dominion and the greatness of
all the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be
given to the people of the saints of the Highest
One His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom,
and all the dominions will serve and obey Him.'
21
Jesus gets dominion backDan 713 "I kept
looking in the night visions, And behold, with
the clouds of heaven One like a Son of Man was
coming, And He came up to the Ancient of Days And
was presented before Him. Dan 714 "And to Him
was given dominion, Glory and a kingdom, That all
the peoples, nations and men of every language
Might serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting
dominion Which will not pass away And His
kingdom is one Which will not be destroyed.
  • When? After all seven seals are broken and He
    begins to Judge the earth!
  • The sixth seal starts the final battle in heaven,
    the seventh gives Jesus dominion!
  • That scroll with seven seals is most likely the
    title deed to the earth!

22
Satan looses his dominion over the earth and is
cast out of heaven!
  • Rev 126 Then the woman fled into the wilderness
    where she had a place prepared by God, so that
    there she would be nourished for one thousand two
    hundred and sixty days.
  • Rev 127 And there was war in heaven, Michael
    and his angels waging war with the dragon. The
    dragon and his angels waged war,
  • Rev 128 and they were not strong enough, and
    there was no longer a place found for them in
    heaven.
  • Rev 129 And the great dragon was thrown down,
    the serpent of old who is called the devil and
    Satan, who deceives the whole world he was
    thrown down to the earth, and his angels were
    thrown down with him.
  • Rev 1210 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven,
    saying, "Now the salvation, and the power, and
    the kingdom of our God and the authority of His
    Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren
    has been thrown down, he who accuses them before
    our God day and night.
  • When is this? At the breaking of the sixth seal
    (battle in heaven, great tribulation on earth)
    and is completed with the breaking of the 7th
    seal!

23
This is when Jesus takes back the earth, at the
breaking of the 7th seal!
The Final battle in heaven, Satan cast down,
Jesus is given dominion!

Revelation 61-2 Then I saw when the Lamb broke
one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the
four living creatures saying as with a voice of

a crown was given to him, and he went out
conquering and to conquer. Dan 927 "And he will

himself above every so-called god or object of
worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple
of God, displaying himself as being God.
35
The Second seal
Revelation 63-4 When He broke the second seal,
I heard the second living creature saying,
"Come." (4) And another, a red horse, went out
and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take
peace from the earth, and that men would slay one
another and a great sword was given to
him. Matthew 246-8 "You will be hearing of
wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not

rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom
Dan 78 "While I was contemplating the horns,
behold, another horn, a little one, came up among
them, and three of the first horns were pulled
out by the roots before it and behold, this horn
possessed eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth
uttering great boasts. Three nations will
oppose this one world government!

    him.

37
The Third seal
Revelation 65-6 When He broke the third seal, I
heard the third living creature saying, "Come." I
looked, and behold, a black horse and he who sat
on it had a pair of scales in his hand. (6) And
I heard something like a voice in the center of
the four living creatures saying, "A quart of
wheat for a denarius (a days wage), and three
quarts of barley for a denarius and do not
damage the oil and the wine." Matthew 247b, and
in various places there will be famines This will
lead to the total collapse of the economy and the
start of the mark of the beast to buy and
sell Revelation 1315-17 And it was given to
him to give breath to the image of the beast, so
that the image of the beast would even speak and
cause as many as do not worship the image of the
beast to be killed. (16) And he causes all, the
small and the great, and the rich and the poor,
and the free men and the slaves, to be given a
mark on their right hand or on their forehead,
(17) and he provides that no one will be able to
buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark,
either the name of the beast or the number of his
name.

Revelation 67-8 When the Lamb broke the fourth
seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living
creature saying, "Come." (8) I looked, and
behold, an ashen horse and he who sat on it had
the name Death and Hades was following with him.
Authority was given to them over a fourth of the
earth, to kill with sword and with famine and
with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the
earth. Matthew 246-13 "You will be hearing of
wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not
frightened, for those things must take place, but

of pestilence disease..

41
The Fifth seal
Revelation 69-11 When the Lamb broke the fifth
seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of
those who had been slain because of the word of
God, and because of the testimony which they had
maintained (10) and they cried out with a loud
voice, saying, "How long, O Lord, holy and true,
will You refrain from judging and avenging our
blood on those who dwell on the earth?" (11)
And there was given to each of them a white robe
and they were told that they should rest for a
little while longer, until the number of their
fellow servants and their brethren who were to be
killed even as they had been, would be completed
also. Matthew 24(9) "Then they will deliver you
to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will
be hated by all nations because of My name. (10)
"At that time many will fall away and will
betray one another and hate one another. (11)
"Many false prophets will arise and will mislead
many. (12) "Because lawlessness is increased,
most people's love will grow cold. (13) "But
the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.
42
The Fifth seal Part II - Apostasy
Matthew 1017-33 "But beware of men, for they
will hand you over to the courts and scourge you
in their synagogues (18) and you will even be
brought before governors and kings for My sake,
as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles. (19)
"But when they hand you over, do not worry about
how or what you are to say for it will be given
you in that hour what you are to say. (20) "For
it is not you who speak, but it is the Spirit of
your Father who speaks in you. (21) "Brother
will betray brother to death, and a father his
child and children will rise up against parents
and cause them to be put to death. (22) "You
will be hated by all because of My name, but it
is the one who has endured to the end who will be
saved. (23) "But whenever they persecute you in

you, you will not finish going through the cities
of Israel until the Son of Man comes. (32)
"Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men,
I will also confess him before My Father who is
in heaven. (33) "But whoever denies Me before
men, I will also deny him before My Father who is
in heaven.

Comparison
  • Matthew 24
  • Revelation 6
  • Mat 246 "You will be hearing of wars and rumors
    of wars. See that you are not frightened, for
    those things must take place, but that is not yet
    the end.
  • Mat 247 "For nation will rise against nation,
    and kingdom against kingdom, and in various
    places there will be famines and earthquakes.
  • Mat 248 "But all these things are merely the
    beginning of birth pangs.
  • Mat 249 "Then they will deliver you to
    tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be
    hated by all nations because of My name.
  • Mat 2410 "At that time many will fall away and
    will betray one another and hate one another.
  • He broke the 4th seal, Rev 68 I looked, and
    behold, an ashen horse and he who sat on it had
    the name Death and Hades was following with him.
    Authority was given to them over a fourth of the
    earth, to kill with sword and with famine and
    with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the
    earth.
  • Rev 69 When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I
    saw underneath the altar the souls of those who
    had been slain because of the word of God, and
    because of the testimony which they had
    maintained
  • Rev 610 and they cried out with a loud voice,
    saying, "How long, O Lord, holy and true, will
    You refrain from judging and avenging our blood
    on those who dwell on the earth?"

44
  • 2 Thess. 23 - "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" (KJV)

  • 2 Thess. 23 - "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" (KJV)
  • In other words, before Christ returns, there will
    be a "falling away" or an apostasy (the Greek
    word used here is apostasia).

46
  • 2 Tim 43-4 - "For the time will come when men
    will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to
    suit their own desires, they will gather around
    them a great number of teachers to say what their
    itching ears want to hear. They will turn their
    ears away from the truth and turn aside to
    myths."

47
  • Most people today do not put up with sound
    doctrine.  Many believe that the Bible has been
    corrupted over time and is no longer trustworthy.
     For those who do believe that the Bible is God's
    word, most do not live according to it.  Today's
    churchgoers have surrounded themselves with
    preachers that tell them exactly what they want
    to hear.

48
  • Mat. 249-11 - "Then you will be handed over to
    be persecuted and put to death, and you will be
    hated by all nations because of me. At that time
    many will turn away from the faith and will
    betray and hate each other, and many false
    prophets will appear and deceive many people."

49
  • The Christian church has become divided, and
    hundreds or even thousands of denominations have
    been formed.  Most of these denominations preach
    a gospel far different than the one presented in
    the Bible.

50
  • Mat. 2437-39 As it was in the days of Noah,
    so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.
    For in the days before the flood, people were
    eating and drinking, marrying and giving in
    marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark and
    they knew nothing about what would happen until
    the flood came and took them all away. That is
    how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.

51
  • Many churches today believe that we are
    currently in one of the best church ages yet,
    however, in Mat. 2437-39, Jesus compared the
    time of "the coming of the Son of Man" to the
    "days of Noah."

52
  • The Days of Noah
  • Gen. 65-8 The LORD saw how great man's
    wickedness on the earth had become, and that
    every inclination of the thoughts of his heart
    was only evil all the time. The LORD was grieved
    that he had made man on the earth, and his heart
    was filled with pain.

53
  • The Days of Noah
  • So the LORD said, "I will wipe mankind, whom I
    have created, from the face of the earthmen and
    animals, and creatures that move along the
    ground, and birds of the airfor I am grieved
    that I have made them." But Noah found favor in
    the eyes of the LORD.

54
  • 2 Tim. 31-9 But mark this There will be
    terrible times in the last days. People will be
    lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful,
    proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents,
    ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving,
    slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not
    lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited,
    lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God
    having a form of godliness but denying its power.
    Have nothing to do with them.

55
  • They are the kind who worm their way into
    homes and gain control over weak-willed women,
    who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by
    all kinds of evil desires, always learning but
    never able to acknowledge the truth. Just as
    Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these
    men oppose the truthmen of depraved minds, who,
    as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected.
    But they will not get very far because, as in the
    case of those men, their folly will be clear to
    everyone.

56
  • 2 Tim. 313 - "while evil men and impostors will
    go from bad to worse, deceiving and being
    deceived."

57
Mat 2413 "But the one who endures to the end,
he will be saved. Mat 2414 "This gospel of the
kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a
testimony to all the nations, and then the end
will come. Mat 2415 "Therefore when you see
the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of
through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy
place (let the reader understand),
  • This occurs between the fifth and the sixth
    seals.

58
The Fifth seal Christians killed
Revelation 69-11 When the Lamb broke the fifth
seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of
those who had been slain because of the word of
God, and because of the testimony which they had
maintained (10) and they cried out with a loud
voice, saying, "How long, O Lord, holy and true,
will You refrain from judging and avenging our
blood on those who dwell on the earth?" (11)
And there was given to each of them a white robe
and they were told that they should rest for a
little while longer, until the number of their
fellow servants and their brethren who were to be
killed even as they had been, would be completed
also. Matthew 24(9) "Then they will deliver you
to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will
be hated by all nations because of My name. (10)
"At that time many will fall away and will
betray one another and hate one another. (11)
"Many false prophets will arise and will mislead
many. (12) "Because lawlessness is increased,
most people's love will grow cold. (13) "But
the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.
Rev 137 It was also given to him to make war
with the saints and to overcome them, and
authority over every tribe and people and tongue
and nation was given to him. 8 All who dwell on
the earth will worship him, everyone whose name
has not been written from the foundation of the
world in the book of life of the Lamb who has
been slain. 9 If anyone has an ear, let him
hear. 10 If anyone is destined for captivity, to
captivity he goes if anyone kills with the
sword, with the sword he must be killed. Here is
the perseverance and the faith of the saints.
59
Mat 244 And Jesus answered them, "See that no
one leads you astray. Mat 245 For many will
come in my name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and
they will lead many astray. Mat 246 And you
will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that
you are not alarmed, for this must take place,
but the end is not yet. Mat 247 For nation
will rise against nation, and kingdom against
kingdom, and there will be famines and
earthquakes in various places. Mat 248 All
these are but the beginning of the birth pains.
Mat 249 "Then they will deliver you up to
tribulation and put you to death, and you will be
hated by all nations for my name's sake. Mat
2410 And then many will fall away and betray
one another and hate one another. Mat 2411 And
many false prophets will arise and lead many
astray. Mat 2412 And because lawlessness will
be increased, the love of many will grow cold.
Mat 2413 But the one who endures to the end
will be saved. Mat 2414 And this gospel of the
kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole
world as a testimony to all nations, and then the
end will come.
60
Mat 2421 "For then there will be a great
tribulation, such as has not occurred since the
beginning of the world until now, nor ever will.
Mat 2422 "Unless those days had been cut
short, no life would have been saved but for the
sake of the elect those days will be cut short.
Mat 2423 "Then if anyone says to you, 'Behold,
here is the Christ,' or 'There He is,' do not
believe him. Mat 2424 "For false Christs and
false prophets will arise and will show great
signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible,
even the elect.
  • Still between the fifth and sixth seal.

61
  • Amos 811 - "Behold, the days are coming," says
    the Lord God, "That I will send a famine on the
    land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for
    water, but of hearing the words of the Lord."

62
Rev 210 'Do not fear what you are about to
suffer. Behold, the devil is about to cast some
of you into prison, so that you will be tested,
and you will have tribulation for ten days. Be
faithful until death, and I will give you the
crown of life. Rev 211 'He who has an ear, let
him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He
who overcomes will not be hurt by the second
death.'
63
The Fifth seal Part II Not all Christians are
killed
Matthew 1017-33 "But beware of men, for they
will hand you over to the courts and scourge you
in their synagogues (18) and you will even be
brought before governors and kings for My sake,
as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles. (19)
"But when they hand you over, do not worry about
how or what you are to say for it will be given
you in that hour what you are to say. (20) "For
it is not you who speak, but it is the Spirit of
your Father who speaks in you. (21) "Brother
will betray brother to death, and a father his
child and children will rise up against parents
and cause them to be put to death. (22) "You
will be hated by all because of My name, but it
is the one who has endured to the end who will be
saved. (23) "But whenever they persecute you in
one city, flee to the next for truly I say to
you, you will not finish going through the cities
of Israel until the Son of Man comes. (32)
"Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men,
I will also confess him before My Father who is
in heaven. (33) "But whoever denies Me before
men, I will also deny him before My Father who is
in heaven.
64
This is telling us not all Christians will be
killed
Matthew 1017-33 "But beware of men, for they
will hand you over to the courts and scourge you
in their synagogues (18) and you will even be
brought before governors and kings for My sake,
as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles. (19)
"But when they hand you over, do not worry about
how or what you are to say for it will be given
you in that hour what you are to say. (20) "For
it is not you who speak, but it is the Spirit of
your Father who speaks in you. (21) "Brother
will betray brother to death, and a father his
child and children will rise up against parents
and cause them to be put to death. (22) "You
will be hated by all because of My name, but it
is the one who has endured to the end who will be
saved. (23) "But whenever they persecute you in
one city, flee to the next for truly I say to
you, you will not finish going through the cities
of Israel until the Son of Man comes. (32)
"Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men,
I will also confess him before My Father who is
in heaven. (33) "But whoever denies Me before
men, I will also deny him before My Father who is
in heaven.
This is speaking to the Church, not Israel.
Notice Israel will persecute the Church during
this time with the antichrist they will think
he is their Messiah! They are protected!
65
It is important to note that Israel will never be
persecuted by the antichrist. They will have a
treaty until he goes into the temple and
proclaims himself god. At that time Israel will
be taken to the wilderness and protected, and
144,000 Jews will be sealed and protected as they
go out and gather Israel to the wilderness
location!In fact, only the Church will be
persecuted!
66
This is when the church will be refined.Joh
1633 "These things I have spoken to you, so
that in Me you may have peace. In the world you
have tribulation, but take courage I have
overcome the world." Rom 835 Who will separate
us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or
distress, or persecution, or famine, or
nakedness, or peril, or sword? (note how all
these things we will endure in the first 5
seals!)Jesus told us in the letters to the
churchesRev 210 'Do not fear what you are
about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to
cast some of you into prison, so that you will be
tested, and you will have tribulation for ten
days. Be faithful until death, and I will give
you the crown of life.

Rom 53 And not only this, but we also exult in
our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings
about perseverance 4 and perseverance, proven
character and proven character, hope 5 and
hope does not disappoint, because the love of God
has been poured out within our hearts through the
Holy Spirit who was given to us.
68
The Fifth seal Part 3
During the intense persecution of believers, the
gospel will be preached to the whole
earth! Matthew 2414-19 "This gospel of the
kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a
testimony to all the nations, and then the end
will come. It is in the midst of the 5th seal
that the antichrist will go into the temple and
proclaim himself god! Matthew 24(15) "Therefore
when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which
was spoken of through Daniel the prophet,
standing in the holy place (let the reader
understand), (16) then those who are in Judea
must flee to the mountains. (17) "Whoever is on
the housetop must not go down to get the things
out that are in his house.
69
The Fifth seal Part 3
Dan 927 "And he will make a firm covenant with
the many for one week, but in the middle of the
week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain
offering and on the wing of abominations will
come one who makes desolate, even until a
complete destruction, one that is decreed, is
poured out on the one who makes desolate." Dan
1136 "Then the king will do as he pleases, and
he will exalt and magnify himself above every god
and will speak monstrous things against the God
of gods and he will prosper until the
indignation is finished, for that which is
decreed will be done.
During the intense persecution of beleivers, the
gospel will be preached to the whole
earth! Matthew 2414-19 "This gospel of the
kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a
testimony to all the nations, and then the end
will come. It is in the midst of the 5th seal
that the antichrist will go into the temple and
proclaim himself god! Matthew 24(15) "Therefore
when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which
was spoken of through Daniel the prophet,
standing in the holy place (let the reader
understand), (16) then those who are in Judea
must flee to the mountains. (17) "Whoever is on
the housetop must not go down to get the things
out that are in his house.
The antichrist is revealed here!
70
The antichrist is revealed as the antichrist
when he goes into the Jewish temple and exalts
himself above God.This is called the
abomination of desolation in scripture.This
event happens just before the breaking of the
sixth seal.It starts a short period of time
known as the time of Jacobs trouble or the
great tribulation.
71
  • Rev 612 I looked when He broke the sixth seal,
    and there was a great earthquake and the sun
    became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the
    whole moon became like blood
  • Rev 613 and the stars of the sky fell to the
    earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when
    shaken by a great wind.
  • Rev 615 Then the kings of the earth and the
    great men and the commanders and the rich and the
    strong and every slave and free man hid
    themselves in the caves and among the rocks of
    the mountains
  • Rev 616 and they said to the mountains and to
    the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the
    presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from
    the wrath of the Lamb
  • Rev 617 for the great day of their wrath has
    come, and who is able to stand?"
  • Mat 2429 "But immediately after the tribulation
    of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE
    MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL
    FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens
    will be shaken.
  • Mat 2430 "And then the sign of the Son of Man
    will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes
    of the earth will mourn, and they will see the
    SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with
    power and great glory. Mat 2431 "And He will
    send forth His angels with A GREAT TRUMPET and
    THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER His elect from the four
    winds, from one end of the sky to the other.
  • 1Th 110 and to wait for His Son from heaven,
    whom He raised from the dead, that is Jesus, who
    rescues us from the wrath to come.

Next week we will talk about the sixth seal and
the most glorious appearing of our Lord the
Rapture of the Church!1Pe 54 And when the
Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the
unfading crown of glory. Tit 211 For the
grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to
all men, Tit 212 instructing us to deny
ungodliness and worldly desires and to live
sensibly, righteously and godly in the present
age, Tit 213 looking for the blessed hope and
the appearing of the glory of our great God and
Savior, Christ Jesus, Tit 214 who gave Himself
for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and
to purify for Himself a people for His own
possession, zealous for good deeds.
