Discussion for Revelation 6

  • A disciple
    The Four Horsemen are four evil spirits sent into the world, to deceive the Nations, and to eventually lead them up to battle against Jerusalem and the God of Israel their Saviour and King. They also represent God's judgment being manifested in the making of the world of the ungodly into that which shows their own wickedness and perversion and error: for with all this, they persecute Christians!

    Rev. 6:17 - And who shall be able to stand? Those to whom GOD has said, "Stand and see the GLORY of GOD". HIS GLORY, just as HE demonstrated to Elijah, will bring down everything; and, there shall not be one stone left upon another. Man is building skyscrapers, each man trying to outdo the other; but, GOD's has said, there shall not be one stone left upon another. and HIS word is true! GLORY!!

    Verse 1-17 above ... When we take into consideration 'all actions by all governments' of the world plus 'all actions of all people of the world (saved and unsaved)' ... the whole world is ready for the Sixth Seal... Thank God for salvation through the shed blood of the Lamb / Jesus Christ. WOW!

    The second coming of the master is getting near everyday when all eyes will see the son of man coming with clouds and glory. The world will mourn as the lords of lords appear in the sky. Jesus is coming we are the last generation.

    God teaches through examples giving us instructions in the Old Testament that make us see the full truth as we read the New Testament. I know there are religions that say the Old Testament is of no use and they do away with it and read only from the New Testament and I truly feel sorry for them because I know they will never know the truth. The Two witnesses get here 10 days before it all begins.
