Rev 6:1-11 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the 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 white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. (3) And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. (4) 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. (5) And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. (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. (7) And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. (8) And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. (9) And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: (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.
Over the past few days I have been pondering and praying about were we are heading in the prophetic timeline. We who are watching for a few years already are used to times were it looked like the end is around the corner, but then suddenly everything calms down and life returns to normal. I don’t think this is such a time! There has been so many theories and speculations over the years. Currently the two main theories is that BhO is the antichrist and the second one is that the end time empire will be muslim with the antichrist being their Mahdi. I don’t have much interest in any of these theories as we have ample evidence that the 10 kings has already been revealed and the future man of sin has already confirmed a 7 year covenant with many. And it is through the eyes of the ENP(i) theory that I am looking at the world around us.
Now if this theory proofs to be true, then the first seal has already been broken. I believe the man behind the ENP is the rider on the white horse. Look at the words in verse 2: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. The way I see it is that he went forth conquering during his appointment as Secretary General of the WEU and HRFSP of the EU, is currently retired but very active behind the scenes and will continue to conquer in the future as soon as he is revealed.
The second seal takes peace from the earth through unrest and war. Yes, I do think a war will happen soon in the ME, but the current Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street surely qualifies as taking peace from the earth. I wonder sometimes what the Lord still needs to do before we will be willing to see the seals are opening. Unrest and murders are daily news. See the following article:
Anti-Mubarak revolutionaries backOccupy Wall Street and find similarities between the protest movements. Leading Egyptian activists joined the protest in New York Monday night with the message, “From Tahrir Square to Wall Street.”
“We are now in many ways involved in the same struggle,” a solidarity message from Egypt stated. “What most pundits call ‘The Arab Spring’ has its roots in the demonstrations, riots, strikes and occupations taking place all around the world.”
The Occupy Wall Street protest movement, whose leader said was inspired by the Arab Spring uprisings, received a boost on Monday, when several leading Egyptian activists, including 26-year-old Asmaa Mahfouz, visited to lend their support. Mahfouz is one of the founders of the April 6 Youth Movement, the group credited with helping to organize the January 25 protests that eventually toppled the regime of former president Hosni Mubarak.
Mahfouz and fellow Egyptian activist and April 6 co-founder Ahmed Maher visited Zuccotti Park, and brought a gift – an Egyptian flag with the slogan “From Tahrir Square to Wall Street.”
“Many of U.S. residents were in solidarity with us,” she told Democracy Now. “I am here to be in solidarity and support the Wall Street Occupy protesters, to say to them, ’the power to the people,’ and to keep it on and on, and they will succeed in the end.”
The solidarity statement from Egypt rejected the distinction between Arab dictatorships and the United States and reasoned that the protest movements both in Cairo and elsewhere are against “systems of repression, disenfranchisement and the unchecked ravages of global capitalism.”
“An entire generation across the globe has grown up realizing, rationally and emotionally, that we have no future in the current order of things,” the statement continued.
Occupy everything… interesting. I never thought that I will see a GLOBAL unrest. Wow, satan knows his time is short.
The third seal is also already in progress, and the effects can speed up very fast. We are all aware of the economic crisis worldwide. We all know that it is just by kicking the can down the road that the worlds economy is still functioning in a way. As soon as there is a worldwide collapse, food will become a very expensive luxury. I believe it is with this worldwide collapse that the antichrist will rise to power. A hungry and desperate person and country will do anything and submit to anyone just for survival. Soon the worlds politicians will have no more answers and they will be willing to listen to someone who seems to know the answers. Ad to this the droughts, floods and other disasters that is damaging world food production, and we are heading for the perfect storm.
Friends, I truly believe that we are closer to the end than most think possible. Prepare.
