Discussion for Revelation 6

  • A disciple
    Under the fifth seal, and under all that which up to now is opened to our view; it is the persecution of Cain against Abel, and Nimrod against the happy and virtuous new world after the cataclysm; the furious rage of the heathen, and the vain imagination of the people against the LORD, and against His Anointed. And so the sixth seal is the Day of the LORD; and the seventh seal silence in heaven.

    Al Zepp (2); Very kind regards to you also :) The wording in the Greek (Textus Receptus) says simply, "For the time at hand;" which I think is very interesting. Also, in that Daniel describes these things in terms of weeks (maybe by heaven, or by some root meaning that was lost translating to English?), and that Moshiach would suffer and be cut off near the completion of the "Seventy Weeks."

    Hello, Al Zepp; Thank you for your civil and kind words. (Genesis 10:8-11; 11:1-9) This is a most important moral and spiritual disaster, and that which set the course for heathen defiance and perversion from the truth deeply set into the minds and souls of men. This topic needs to be thoroughly searched out and understood; as it is the fundamental cause of the antichrist spirits in the world.

    The most common way that many "try' to understand prophecy altogether, including Revelation; excludes the part of eternity where God dwells; and limit their view by man's thinking in terms of man's temporal existence here. An accurate understanding of the history of the world as it is recorded in the Scriptures of Truth will allow you to view the prophecy from eternity looking down into time.

    Dear disciple,
    I will try to show you a time table of John's writings of his vision. Rev1;1 John wrote of things shortly to come to pass. Verse 2. For the things He saw. Verse 3 For the time is at hand. John was in a state of "Tribulation." along with his brothers in Christ. Do these Scriptures seem to imply John was recording things present to his day looking forward? My kindest regards. Al

    Hello disciple,

    I appreciate your input. May I ask you for supporting Scriptures? And a question? What does it mean to you when the Rev.1 states that John was in the " Spirit" when he wrote? I hope to be consistent historically and allegorically thru the Seven Seals. Perhaps John's vision was looking forward thru the entire Gospel Day.
