The Next Event is NOT the Sixth Seal and Rapture
Some Christians are coming around to the scriptural fact that the rapture will not occur until after Seal 6 is opened—which I present a Biblical proof of that fact in The Coming Epiphany. However some of those Christians who see the rapture occurring after the Sixth Seal is opened believe that the Sixth Seal and rapture are imminent because they believe that Seals 1 to 5 have already been opened, and thus Seal 6 and the rapture are the next event in the prophetic time line. In my eyes this is scripturally impossible and is also practically as dangerous as believing in a pre-tribulation rapture. Let me tell you why.
First off it is impossible for Seal 5 to have been opened. Here is why; consider these verses.
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
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. 2 Thes 2
The scriptures above clearly tell us that our gathering together unto Him— the rapture—called the day of Christ in the passage, will not occur until after the man of sin—the antichrist—is revealed and he sits in the Temple and proclaims that he is god—the abomination of desolation.
Thus the rapture occurs after the abomination of desolation.
And when does the abomination of desolation occur? It occurs near the midpoint of the 70th Week (the 70th Week is the last 7 years before the return of Christ to the earth at Armageddon). We know this because Israel is instructed to flee into the wilderness after the abomination of desolation occurs, and we are told that she flees for the last 3.5 years of the 70th Week.
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains…
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. Matt 24
And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. Revelation 12:14
Thus Israel fleeing into the wilderness also occurs after the abomination of desolation.
As mentioned in verse 24 above the time period in which Israel flees into the wilderness for the last 3.5 years is known as the Great Tribulation—the time when the antichrist makes war against Jews and Christians.
And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. Daniel 7:25
14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent…
17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. Revelation 12: 14, 17
And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. Revelation 13:7
Thus the Great Tribulation also occurs after the abomination of desolation.
And where is this Great Tribulation/persecution/war against Jews and Christians found in the sequence of events in the book of Revelation? It is found in the description of Seal 5.
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 fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. Rev 6: 9-11
Thus Seal 5 occurs after the abomination of desolation and since Seal 6 and the rapture occurs after Seal 5, therefore Seal 6 and the rapture occurs after the abomination of desolation.
Abomination of desolation—Great tribulation (Seal 5)—Rapture (Seal 6).
Therefore it is scripturally impossible for seal 5 to have occurred yet, because the antichrist has not arisen and performed the abomination of desolation, and begun his war against Jews and Christians. Thus since Seal 5 has not occurred yet, Seal 6 and the rapture are not imminent.
How about Seals 2-4, have they occurred yet? Before we answer that question let’s look at what they entail; Seal 2 is a world war, Seal 3 is a worldwide financial collapse, and seal 4 is a worldwide pandemic.
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.
Some argue that since we have seen world wars, financial collapses, and pandemics, that these Seals have been opened. Granted, similar things have been happening from the dawn of time, however a world war, a worldwide financial collapse, and a worldwide pandemic killing ¼ of the world’s population has not occurred in the history of the world.
Has there ever been a time when literally the whole world has been involved in war? Has there ever been a time when the average person in the world had to spend a whole day’s wages just to get a measure of grain? Has there ever been a time when a pandemic has struck the whole world? Has there ever been a time when war, financial collapse, and a pandemic have wiped out ¼ of the world’s population? I answer NO to all of them. So not only has Seal 5 not been opened, but I also conclude that Seals 2-4 have not been opened either.
Another reason why I believe Seals 2-4 have not been opened is because a former Illuminati insider has told us that “the plan” calls for the antichrist to arise on the scene 91 days after WWIII (Seal 2) begins. It is in this same time period that Seal 3-4, along with other horrific events, are also planned to occur. After this 91 day period “the plan” calls for the antichrist to come onto the scene to falsely solve the world’s problems. This is also the time that the New World Order will be established, which he will be the leader of for the last 3.5 years of the 70th Week.
5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear. Revelation 13
Thus in conclusion; according to scriptural parameters, the Sixth Seal and rapture must occur after the abomination of desolation. The abomination of desolation has not occurred yet; therefore the Sixth Seal and rapture are not imminent. To believe otherwise is unscriptural.
