0004 Revelation Ch. 6

  1. 1. Revelation 6 The Judgment Begins, Part 1: Rider on the White Horse
  2. 2. The Four Horsemen www . davidmiles . net /
  3. 3. The First Seal <ul><li>Rev 6:1 I watched as the lamb opened the first of the seven seals. I heard one of the four living creatures say with a voice like thunder, &quot;Go!&quot; </li></ul>
  4. 4. The First Seal <ul><li>Rev 6:2 Then I looked, and there was a white horse, and its rider had a bow. He was given a crown and rode off as a warrior to win battles. </li></ul>Conqueror www . davidmiles . net /
  5. 5. Some points to consider about the rider on the white horse… <ul><li>The first thing to note was he had a bow but no arrows. This means that he will perhaps present himself as a military leader but will use peace to conquer many nations. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Some points to consider about the rider on the white horse… <ul><li>In Daniel 8:25 we read of just such a leader who will appear in the end times. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Some points to consider about the rider on the white horse… <ul><li>Dan 8:25 And through his policy also he shall [use craftiness] ; and he shall magnify himself in his heart … </li></ul>
  8. 8. Some points to consider about the rider on the white horse… <ul><li>Dan 8:25 … and by peace shall destroy many : he shall also stand up against the Prince of prince s (who we know is Jesus Christ) , </li></ul>
  9. 9. Some points to consider about the rider on the white horse… <ul><li>This leader is the one we know as the Anti-Christ (False Christ, or one opposed to Christ) who will eventually be a world dictator. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Some points to consider about the rider on the white horse… <ul><li>He will come in as a peacemaker making a treaty between Israel and her Arab neighbors for 7 years. (Daniel 9:27) </li></ul>
  11. 11. Some points to consider about the rider on the white horse… <ul><li>Dan 9:27 That ruler will confirm a peace treaty with many people for seven years , (My paraphrase) </li></ul>
  12. 12. Some points to consider about the rider on the white horse… <ul><li>To “confirm”, means that a peace treaty already has to exist. The question is: Does such a treaty exist at present between Israel and her Arab neighbors? </li></ul>
  13. 13. Some points to consider about the rider on the white horse… <ul><li>The Answer is both “Yes” and “No”. </li></ul><ul><li>Yes, there is a treaty ready, but no, we cannot be certain it is the treaty of Daniel 9:27. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Some points to consider about the rider on the white horse… <ul><li>The EU, under Javier Solana, has quietly forged a peace treaty individually with each of the Arab nations in North Africa, Middle East and Israel, each pledging to cooperate with the EU and the other nations for peace and prosperity. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Some points to consider about the rider on the white horse… <ul><li>That treaty is the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership/Barcelona Process (see . </li></ul>
  16. 16. Some points to consider about the rider on the white horse… <ul><li>Each nation signed it separately with Solana, but by the end of November, 2007, Solana hoped to be able to have all of the nations again jointly sign the final treaty that will bind Israel and its Arab neighbors together in “peace”. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Some points to consider about the rider on the white horse… <ul><li>We know now, he failed. But it shows there is already at least one treaty waiting to be confirmed. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Euro-Mediterranean Partnership/Barcelona Process www . consilium . europa . eu Javier Solana Homepage <ul><li>Jordan </li></ul><ul><li>Lebanon </li></ul><ul><li>Syria </li></ul><ul><li>Israel </li></ul><ul><li>“ Palestianian Authority” </li></ul><ul><li>Among the signers of the agreement are: </li></ul><ul><li>Morocco </li></ul><ul><li>Algeria </li></ul><ul><li>Tunisia </li></ul><ul><li>Turkey </li></ul><ul><li>Egypt </li></ul>
  19. 19. Euro-Mediterranean Partnership/Barcelona Process <ul><li>It is tempting to claim that Javier Solana is the Anti-Christ given his activities for the “peace” treaty and how he came to be the virtual head of the EU. (One has to but research “Resolution #666” see how 666 relates to Solana, not by numerology but by political maneuvering). </li></ul>
  20. 20. <ul><li>However, we have no way of knowing if the peace treaty Solana is trying to make is the treaty Daniel 9:27 spoke of but it shows that such a treaty is possible and it could be signed very soon. </li></ul>
  21. 21. <ul><li>The Anti-Christ’s identity cannot be known for certain before the Rapture. However, we can say he will be someone who will be doing much of what Solana is now doing </li></ul>
  22. 22. <ul><li>Also the treaties and programs he is forming have the stipulated purpose of absorbing the countries into the one-world government headed by the EU, which is presently headed by Solana. </li></ul>
  23. 23. <ul><li>But Bible prophecy indicates that Israel will not permanently be part of any grouping. Zechariah 12:2-3 tells us that all nations will come against Jerusalem (Israel) in the last days to try to conquer and destroy her. “All who [try to take it over for themselves] will be cut to pieces. [Zech. 12:3] </li></ul>
  24. 24. <ul><li>The truth is, we can’t know who Anti-Christ is until the point in World History covered in Revelation 13 – long after the Church is Raptured. </li></ul>
  25. 25. The Judgment Begins Part 2: The Second – Sixth Seals Revelation 6

  35. 35. Ezekiel 38 – 39 <ul><li>Eze 38:8 After many days you will be visited. In the latter years you shall come into the land turned back from the sword, gathered out of many peoples, on the mountains of Israel, which have always been waste. (But [they have] been brought out of the peoples, and they shall dwell securely, all of them.) </li></ul>
  36. 36. <ul><li>Eze 38:9 And you shall go up, coming like a storm. You shall be like a cloud to cover the land, you and all your bands, and many peoples with you. </li></ul>Ezekiel 38 – 39
  37. 37. Israel’s enemies destroyed: Ezekiel 38-39 <ul><li>Eze 38:19 I declare in the heat of my anger that on that day there will be a severe earthquake in the land of Israel. </li></ul>
  38. 38. Israel’s enemies destroyed: Ezekiel 38-39 <ul><li>Eze 38:20 Every fish and bird, every animal large and small, and every human being on the face of the earth will tremble for fear of me. Mountains will fall, cliffs will crumble, and every wall will collapse. </li></ul>

  41. 41. The Battle’s Outcome <ul><li>Only 15% of the all the armies will survive. “ Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: ” </li></ul><ul><li>[ Eze 39:2 – 4] </li></ul>
  42. 42. The Battle’s Outcome <ul><li>Eze 39:6 I will send fire on Magog and on those who live safely on the coasts. Then they will know that I am the LORD. </li></ul>
  43. 43. The Third Seal <ul><li>Rev 6:5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, “Go.” And I beheld … a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. </li></ul>Famine www . davidmiles . net /
  44. 44. The Third Seal <ul><li>Rev 6:6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A [loaf] of wheat [bread] for a [day’s wages] , and three [loaves] of barley [bread] for a day’s wages] ; and see thou hurt not the [olive] oil and the wine. (Paraphrase mine) </li></ul>
  45. 45. Widespread Starvation Following the War <ul><li>A loaf of wheat bread is enough to barely keep a person alive for a day. </li></ul>www . hollywoodjesus . com / wolverton01 . htm
  46. 46. Widespread Starvation Following the War <ul><li>Therefore, it’s going to be so bad that a person will pay everything he has just to eat – and at that, nothing fancy. Just enough to keep body and soul together one more day. </li></ul>
  47. 47. Widespread Starvation Following the War <ul><li>The reason the amount of barley is more than wheat is barley has less nutrition and so it would take more to make a loaf of bread – one day’s amount of food for one person. </li></ul>
  48. 48. Widespread Starvation Following the War <ul><li>We note that the rider is forbidden to touch the olive oil and wine. Nobody but the wealthy could afford them as they are luxury items. It is as if God is saying, “You lusted after the luxurious living, so I’m allowing the luxury to remain and taking away from you the necessities you didn’t care for.” </li></ul>
  49. 49. The Fourth Seal <ul><li>Rev 6:7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, “Go” . </li></ul>
  50. 50. The Fourth Seal <ul><li>Rev 6:8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and [Hades] [the Grave] followed with him. </li></ul>Death Hades or The Grave www . davidmiles . net /
  51. 51. The Fourth Seal <ul><li>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.? </li></ul>
  52. 52. The Scope of the destruction and suffering <ul><li>These Four Horsemen were granted the power to destroy one fourth (1/4) of the world’s population. At the population rate as of 2007, that would be over 1,000,000,000 people. </li></ul>
  53. 53. The Scope of the destruction and suffering <ul><li>To put it in perspective, imagine the entire of North and South America and Western Europe completely empty of people. No one alive, just a desert place. That’s how horrible this war is going to be. </li></ul>
  54. 54. The Fifth Seal <ul><li>Rev 6:9 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: </li></ul>
  55. 55. The Fifth Seal In Rev. 8: 3-4 The altar of incense was the altar for the prayers of the saints. It seems to be the one referred to here
  56. 56. The Fifth Seal <ul><li>Rev 6:10 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? </li></ul>
  57. 57. The Fifth Seal <ul><li>Rev 6:11 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 fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. </li></ul>
  58. 58. The Sixth Seal: Worldwide Natural Disasters <ul><li>Rev 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; </li></ul>
  59. 59. The Sixth Seal: Worldwide Natural Disasters <ul><li>Rev 6:13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. </li></ul>
  60. 60. The Sixth Seal: Worldwide Natural Disasters www . hollywoodjesus . com / wolverton01 . htm
  61. 61. The Sixth Seal: Worldwide Natural Disasters <ul><li>Rev 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. </li></ul>
  62. 62. The Sixth Seal: Worldwide Natural Disasters <ul><li>Rev. 6:16 “… hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: </li></ul><ul><li>Re v 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? ” </li></ul>
  63. 63. Revelation 6:16-17 <ul><li>A series of natural disasters that get the attention of the world. All the people try to find a place to hide in underground shelters. </li></ul>
  64. 64. Revelation 6:16-17 <ul><li>They recognize that this is the beginning of the time of the “Wrath of the Lamb” and they want to escape. </li></ul>
  65. 65. Revelation 6:16-17 <ul><li>There is no repentance for their sinfulness, just a desire to escape the consequences in the form of God’s WRATH. </li></ul>
  66. 66. Revelation 6:16-17 <ul><li>The Lamb (Jesus) that they counted on as being “loving” and as “overlooking their sinful lifestyles”, “never going to judge sins” is now a Lamb filled with great wrath at their sinfulness and refusal to repent of their sins. </li></ul>
  67. 67. Revelation 6:16-17 <ul><li>He provided the way through His shed blood on the Cross. But they would have to confess that they were sinners, repent and receive His pardon. </li></ul>
  68. 68. Revelation 6:16-17 <ul><li>They chose instead to reject the free pardon and trusted in their own goodness. Therefore, they know they face eternal damnation in hell and are terrified of that prospect. </li></ul>
  69. 69. Revelation 6:16-17 <ul><li>If only they would have repented and turned to Jesus when there was still time before the Rapture… </li></ul>
