6 verses of the 6th seal in the 6th chapter of the Book of Revelation.

We have now come to the 6 verses of the 6th seal in the 6th chapter of the Book of Revelation.

The seals, remember, unlock, i.e. give access to the knowledge (His Word)
that is necessary for one to have stored in his/her forehead
in order to remain a "virgin" until the true Bridegroom comes
at the sound of the 7th Trump, the final trump.

The false messiah though,
the look-alike Jesus,
will appear first,
before our Lord's return,
and shows up at the 6th Trump and the 6th vial,
and we will find him here in the 6th seal as well.

This is absolutely precious knowledge!

If you have "eyes to see" and "ears to hear"
you will discover that this sixth seal
will reveal something that the majority of Christian ministers and pastors and teachers
are completely unaware (ignorant) of,
and consequently they cannot understand
the events of prophecy foretelling of our present day and the days that lie just ahead.

(They have been following the rider of the white horse of the first seal
who has led them down a desolate road.)

They must therefore rely on "traditional" teachings
which defy common sense and can easily be proven to be contradictory to God's Word even by a child.

It is no wonder they shy away from the Book of Revelation,
even telling their congregations that they won't be here anyway
when these events take place,
so why bother trying to understand it.

Woe unto them!

We have also learned that all Seven of the Seals
were given to the disciples by Jesus in Matthew 24 and Mark 13
as Signs of what it would be like just prior to His second advent.

To understand this 6th seal then,
let's pick it up in Mark 13:14,
just after He gave the 5th sign (we'll repeat verse 13).

Mark 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

[14] But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

What is the abomination of desolation?

Actually the question should be "who" is the abomination of desolation?

Just a little application of rightly dividing the Word will make this very, very simple.

You will find that "he" is the "abominator" who comes in on the wings of desolation,
i.e. lays waste, makes desolate,
spoken of by Daniel the prophet in chapter 9 of the book bearing his name.

That is why Dr. Moffat translates "standing where 'it' ought not"
as "standing where 'he' ought not".

Do you know where he ought not to be standing?

The apostle Paul speaks of this exact same event in his second letter to the Thessalonians
concerning the son of perdition, i.e. the son who will perish, the abominator who makes desolate, Satan himself:

2 Thes. 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
He stands in the temple of God,
where he ought not to be sitting either,
claiming he's Jesus Christ.

When you see this,
Christ continues in Mark 13:15...

Mark 13:15 And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house:

[16] And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.

These two verses simply say that when you see this "benchmark" of prophecy come to pass,
i.e. Satan posing as Christ in Jerusalem,
that time is short and Jesus will return very soon
and as watchmen on the tower or workers plowing in the field,
there is no need to come down or go back to the house and pack your bags.

These verses are figures of speech saying time is extremely short.

[17] But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
Oh boy!

This verse will cause the unlearned wife to say "Not tonight honey, I have a headache",
because she's secretly afraid that she might get pregnant
and she senses we may be living in the end time,
and she thinks Jesus is advocating not having babies.

So you see, ignorance is not necessarily bliss.
It can cause you suffer needlessly and to be unhappy!

Those with "eyes to see" are "luckier" than those without.
(Just thought I'd throw that in as a little extra motivation to study deeper into His Word.)

Now ya' all don't seem to have a problem with how the apostle Paul said
the very same thing in 2 Cor. 11:2 where he is addressing the church:

2 Cor. 11:2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
If you're waiting for your wedding day to be married to your fiancée,
the Bridegroom,
then don't go crawling in bed and losing your virginity to someone else.

His analogy is to spiritual seduction evidenced by verse 3.

2 Cor. 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
So Mark 13:17 should be a "no brainer" also.

Christ is simply saying that when He returns to take His virgin bride and finds she is,(spiritually speaking), nursing a baby, guess what?

He knows she's already "been had" by someone else!
(the antichrist who came first and stood in the temple claiming to be Christ)See 2 Thes. 2:4 & Mark 13:13

She has been SEDUCED.

"Woe unto them" means He's really angry.

Let's use a figure of speech, "He's not a happy camper!"

 How would you feel?

[18] And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.
Don't be taken out of season!

Harvest time is NOT in the winter.

Wait on the Lord, the true one not the fake!

[19] For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.
The word "affliction" means "tribulation".

Here is part of the key to understanding the 6th seal.

When the son of perdition stands in the Holy Place showing great signs and wonders,
performing miracles in the sight of men,
deceiving the whole world into believing he's Jesus Christ,
that THAT time will be the greatest tribulation of all time.

[20] And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
In fact, Satan is sooooooo good at deception
that Christ has rescheduled this actor's 3 1/2 year personal appearance and performance
as "The Messiah is Here" soon to be playing in the Temple in Jerusalem,
to a shorter run,
the length of which we will learn in chapter 9.
[21] And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:
So, if someone tells you Jesus has returned and is in Jerusalem,
just perform the "pinch test".

Pinch yourself really hard with your sharpest fingernails
(if you've chewed them off,
use your teeth),
and if you draw blood,
BELIEVE HIM NOT.

Say to him "That's really something isn't it, er.. I'm bleeding... look see... would you excuse me?

Do you know where I can find a Band-Aid?"

You see,
when the true Messiah returns we who are alive and remain will instantly,
in a moment,
in the twinkling of an eye,
at the snap of a finger,
be changed from our flesh bodies into our spiritual bodies.
You will no longer bleed!

Have you not read of this "mystery" by Paul in 1 Cor. 15?

 The flesh age ends when Christ returns.

[22] For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
When Satan is kicked out of heaven in Revelation 12:7-9
and comes to earth as the false messiah,
you'll read that his angels are cast out with him.

 These guys are really good too!

These are the same fallen angels that seduced the daughters of Adam in Gen. chapter 6.

We just read that they are coming to SEDUCE again.

How do we know?

It's recorded in Matthew's account in chapter 24 concerning this same seal.

These are the words of Jesus Christ:

Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
It's going to be just like it was in the days of Noe (Greek for Noah).

What were they doing back then?

[38] For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
Who was doing the seducing?

The sons of God,
the fallen angels who left their first habitation,
i.e. their heavenly abode (see Jude),
and came to earth and seduced the daughters of Adam,
the union of which produced giants and caused the flood of Noah.

And what about those people back then?

[39] And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
They were unaware of the impending flood
about to sweep them away and so they WERE TAKEN in the flood.
[40] Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
And so just as it was in the days of Noah,
those who are unaware WILL BE TAKEN in the flood of lies
and be seduced and impregnated with deception.

There is absolutely no other way to interpret what is being said here
unless you pluck these verses out of context
and twist them to appear to say something they don't.

That is how Satan, the illusionist, "un-rightly" divides the Word of God.



Note: The ignorant and the unlearned that we spoke of earlier, believe that the first one taken is raptured by Jesus Christ. They along with their entire congregations are going to get screwed and lose their virginity! Too graphic? I think not! Eternal life is at stake here!

[41] Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
Just like it was in the days of Noah!

We are without excuse!

How so?

Remember Christ's words back in Mark 13:23?

He told us everything,
exactly how it is going to be!

Mark 13:23 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
We are now ready to return to verse 12 of Revelation chapter 6
and begin the 6th Seal.

However, we have exceeded the length of our daily study already and so we'll resume and conclude this extremely important seal tomorrow.

I know we are spending considerable time on chapter 6 and each of the seals,
but when you think about their importance
and the fact that you must have this knowledge "sealed" in your mind
so as not to be taken in the flood,
then a little extra careful "dividing" is more than justified.

What is it that Jesus Christ would have us learn from the 6th Seal?

For one thing, there are TWO TRIBULATIONS!

Find out more in the next exciting study of The Book of Revelation!

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
