The SIXTH SEAL of Revelation

It is written in Revelation Chapter six verse 12 to 17 (New International Version)

I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake . The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up , and every mountain and island was removed from its place. Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves and among rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come And who can withstand it? “

The passage above refers to the opening of the sixth seal of the Revelation. This event is preceded by the opening of the five seals of Revelation. The first four seals refer to the four horsemen of Apocalypse. The first seal refers to the white horse whose rider is a conqueror. This depicts conquest. The second seal refers to the fiery red horse whose rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other. This rider depicts war and violence. World War I and World War II and various catastrophic wars fall within this category. The third seal refers to the black horse whose rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. This rider depicts the economy or the worldwide economic upheavals. Various economic crises such as inflation, unemployment, market crash, economic recession and depression fall within this category. The fourth seal refers to the pale horse whose rider was named Death and Hades was following behind closely. According to Revelation 6:8, they were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague and by the wild beasts of the earth. The “Pale Horse” depicts massive deaths through plagues or pestilences, famine, sword, and wild animals. The present pandemic COVID 19 being experienced nowadays by the people of the world falls under this category – plagues/pestilences. Many parts of the globe have also been experiencing the attacks of swarms of locusts destroying their agricultural livelihood thus causing the emergence or worldwide famines. East Africa experienced this phenomena recently.

These four seals or four horsemen of Apocalypse and their riders are somewhat synonymous or have similarities to the birth pains of Matthew Chapter 24 spoken by the Lord Jesus to His disciples on the mount of Olives. The fifth seal refers to the persecuted Christians or the believers who had been martyred for their faith in the Lord Jesus. On verse 11 of the same chapter of Revelation, these martyred saints are given white robes and are told to wait further for others who would be martyrs of the Christian faith.

The birth pains of Matthew 24 are being experienced by people from the time of first century Christians until nowadays. But these birth pains have grown more intense and frequent as the Lord’s Second Coming draws nearer. The birth pains of Matthew Chapter 24 precedes the Day of the Lord. In the Book of prophet Joel Chapter 2 verse 28 to 31 record events that will take place preceding the great Day of the Lord. It is written in Joel 2:28:

“And afterward,

I will pour out my Spirit on all people.

Your sons and daughters prophesy,

Your old men will dream dreams

Your young men will see visions.

During the last twenty years, up to the present I have been hearing, viewing and reading testimonies of some Muslim/Jewish men and women who have spoken of their encounters with Christ in a vision. I also have heard of those who have received visions of Rapture/Harpazo and the coming Judgement. I myself have received some end time visions in my dreams. Joel’s prophecies are being fulfilled in our time. It is also written in Joel 2:30;

“I will show wonders in heavens and on the earth blood and fire and billows of smoke.”

This phenomena is also mentioned by the Lord in Luke 21:25:

"There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken."

The appearances of the blood moons during the previous years, the appearance of the Revelation 12 sign on September 23, 2017, and many other signs in the heavens is a fulfillment of this prophecy spoken by the prophet Joel.

It is also written in Joel 2:31;

“The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.”

It is also written in Matthew 24:29;

"Immediately after the distress of those days,

'The sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light;

the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.'


This phenomena refers to the Sixth seal of Revelation which is also written in the Book of Revelation Chapter Six.

Since we are experiencing nowadays these events spoken by the Prophet Joel as the phenomena prior to the “Day of the Lord”, could it be very soon we are going to experience the Sixth seal of Revelation?

I have been following the broadcast of Mike From Around the World through Pastor Paul Begley’s Youtube Channel. This man is a Christian scientist who works in a government agency. He reveals through this broadcast a phenomena to be observed starting around Mid September this year. According to him, multiple clusters of debris from the outer space are about to fall down on earth. With these clusters, the Nibiru System will draw closest to Earth starting about September up to a certain period of time. According to Stephen Benun's (Israel News Live) intel source, we are experiencing the outer bands of the Planet X/Nibiru System. This system consists of a planet six times the size of the earth also known as the Planet X or Planet Number Nine. According to this scientist this Nibiru System which passes close to Earth every 3600 years is the one responsible for the occurrences of frequent earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, violent storms, changes in weather systems, heating up of the Earth’s Core, rising of Magma, and many other phenomena. In other words somewhat responsible for the intensification of the birth pains of Matthew Chapter 24. Somehow this is believable since I heard from Pastor John MacArthur that a scientist named Velinkovsky mentioned that when a heavenly body of significant mass draws close to Earth, we are going to experience occurrences of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, powerful hurricanes, etc. I believe this is the way Earth’s gravity reacts to this system. It is interesting to know that the last time it passed by the earth was around 3600 years ago, could be about the same era when Moses lived and brought about the plagues of Egypt.

These coming falling clusters of debris from this system, could it be the fulfillment of Revelation 6:13? Which says “and the stars in the sky fell to Earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind.” As I watch the night sky, I can behold a lot of heavenly objects in the space which could be meteors, asteoids or comets. Are these the ones about to fall on earth?

I believe the closing in of the Nibiru system has something to do with the frequency of the occurrence of falling of heavenly objects from the outer space since the Nibiru has a strong gravitational force to attract heavenly bodies in the outer space. A great earthquake and a great volcanic eruption could happen accompanying this phenomena, the passing of the Nibiru System. The violent and catastrophic eruption of Mount Santorini during 16th century BC could be triggered by the impact of gravitational force from this system. This may also cause the roaring and tossing of the seas spoken by Jesus in Luke 21:25. This may also cause a phenomena known as Pole Shift, which causes every island to be moved from its place as mentioned in Revelation 6:14. The planet is so huge about six times the size of the earth that its gravitational force could affect earth with much intensity. This phenomena might cause the darkening of the sun due to a massive volcanic eruption. Could it be the opening of the sixth seal of Revelation ? Could this be the event that will precede the “Day of the Lord" spoken by the Prophet Joel in the Book of Joel chapter two?

Are you ready for the opening of the Sixth Seal?

To be prepared for the coming of the Lord and the opening of the Sixth Seal, we must examine ourselves whether we truly belong to the household of faith. it is high time to make sure of our calling and election.

These attributes must be present:


1) We have experienced the miracle of the new birth through our Lord Jesus Christ. To experience the new birth, we must see ourselves as depraved sinners before the Holy God as it is written in Romans 3;23, "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." We must realize that our only HOPE can only be found on the cross of CHRIST, that apart from Christ's work on the cross it is impossible for us to find salvation. We must completely put our faith on Christ's finished work on the cross as the only sacrifice acceptable to God for the forgiveness of our sins. This sacrifice done by our Lord is perfect, complete and sufficient. It is written in Romans 6:23, "The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ."


2) CHRIST must be the ultimate Lord of our life. It is an implication that Christ is Lord of all areas of our life. He is Lord of our career, our family life, our love life, our entertainment, our ministries, our studies, and all others aspects of our life. His Lordship in our life is a hundred percent. If Christ is not Lord of all areas of our life, He is not our Lord at all.


3) The presence of the Spirit of God in us. If the Spirit of God is in us, the fruits of the Holy Spirit found in Galatians 5:22 - 23 are evident in our lives. This include love, joy, peace, mercy, kindness, goodness, longsuffering, patience, self-control. These are actually the nine great virtues of Christ.

4) The true Christian knows very well the Voice of the Master and he listens to His Voice. A true Christian can discern very well the truth from lies.

5) A true born again believer has a longing for the Lord's return.

6) A true born again Christian has overcome the world as it is written in I John 5:4, "for everyone born of God, overcomes the world." It implies that a true believer has overcome the desires of the world. He is no longer in bondage to the things of the world such as the "pride of life", the lust of the eyes" and the "lust of the flesh."

Thanks to all those who gave time to view this hub Maranatha!! Our redemption is drawing nearer than before, keep watching prayerfully.

Cristina Santander (author) from Manila on April 24, 2020:

Hi Jack Jenn,

Thanks for visiting this hub. Your comment is much appreciated. Yes I believe the end times are upon us and we could be at the last decade of the "Fig Tree" generation. Everything the Lord said two thousand years ago are coming to pass in our time. Remain blessed.

Jack Jenn from Nelson Bay NSW Australia. on April 23, 2020:

Hi Cristine,

I enjoyed your article and it serves as a wake-up call that so many are deaf to His pleadings. I believe you are corect in what you say about the CV pandemic and it's the first of many to come and in increasing intensity, and the beginning of Tribulation - not far hence, will largely go unnoticed by so many.

My best regards Cristine,

If you will permit me to give a comment on what T has said - albeit ungraciously.

T, You mention Newton calculated the time of the end at 2060?

Show me chapter and verse that backs up your statement?

I agree with Cristine that Newton was NOT by any stretch of the truth, a theologian - if he was such his work would have been respected and his 2060 date shows just that, yet you are pushing it forward yourself with scant regard to scripture.

Jack.

Cristina Santander (author) from Manila on April 22, 2020:

Let us continue to watch and pray that the Lord will help us to become worthy to be part of the "Harpazo" and escape all the judgements that will befall the world. Let us continue to seek daily to be filled with the Holy Spirit and remain in doing good works that will bring glory to God as the Master says, " Occupy till I come."

Cristina Santander (author) from Manila on April 17, 2020:

We are admonished by the Lord to watch and pray so that day will not take us by surprise. The devil does not want us to watch out for the endtimes. He wants us to be convenient with the world and enjoy continually the things offered by the world so that we will not repent and seek God, and that "day" will catch us by surprise. Do you want this to happen to you?

The Lord Jesus is giving us warning in advance, because He does not want that "day" to take us by surprise.

Cristina Santander (author) from Manila on April 17, 2020:

I am not predicting the endtimes, I am just watching. It is writren in Luke 21:36;

"Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man."

We are admonished by the Lord Jesus Hinself to watch and pray.

According to Luke 21:25;

"There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken."

We have to watch out for these signs. These signs spoken by the Lord Himself are great signs preceding His return.

"At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near."

The Logician from now on on April 17, 2020:

Are we speaking of the Trinity?

No. And the subject I bring up is not Newton but the point he made about his motivation in predicting the end times

“not to assert when the time of the end shall be, but to put a stop to the rash conjectures of fanciful men who are frequently predicting the time of the end, and by doing so bring the sacred prophesies into discredit as often as their predictions fail.”

which you don’t seem to want to discuss simply because you believe we are in the end times although the reasons you give are flimsy and when I point that out you just ignore what I say.

What scripture says can be applied to times in the past and certainly possibly times in the future which could be a better fit, we can not know.

What NASA scientists predict is not fact, it could turn out to be nothing but a whim and certainly the Bible does not specifically predict an asteroid bombardment of earth so why try to make that fit.

When you say you “just noticed recently the changes happening in our world nowadays such as the increase in the occurrence of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, the occurrence of more powerful typhoons, the changes in weather systems. I am wondering what could be the causes of these.” what you first should be wondering is, is “what you noticed” true, is it unique to just this time period, is it fulfillment of prophecy?If you questioned this you’d find that these times we are in are no different in reference to Biblical prophecy than other times in our history and certainly will be found in the future.

You see to dwell on the thought that we are seeing Bible prophecy of the end times fulfilled when these times really aren’t much different than other times in history that were not foretelling of the end but seemed to be, is not productive.

But more important, as Newton, a genius and very wise man said, ”rash conjectures ... predicting the time of the end .... bring the sacred prophesies into discredit as often as their predictions fail.“

Imagine, 30 years from now you may revisit this article and come to realize you brought the sacred prophesies into discredit as your prediction failed.

You must know the early church believed that Jesus would return very soon, even during their lifetimes, and Christians have been revising that prediction ever since.

There’s an entire Wikipedia page full of entries about people who thought the Earth was near its final day; the reasons varied from an event where British hens laid eggs with “Christ is Coming” etched into them (sadly, a hoax) to numerology based on Revelation, Daniel, and other books of the Bible.

Christians have historically been fixated on the end of the world. And guess what, no matter how many prophesies have been fulfilled or appear to be getting filled as we speak, we’re still here and odds are we’ll be dead and gone just like the rest who were fixated on the end of the world in the past and life will go on.

Christians have perpetuated some of the worst (and silliest) ideas about the end of the world. Similar is the thought of hanging the end times on predictions by NASA scientists about asteroids.

I commend you on your interest in the Bible and don’t mean for a second to discourage your studying to show yourself approved but what will be will be. To try to put it in a box of your own personal belief does no credit to sacred prophesies of the Bible.

Cristina Santander (author) from Manila on April 17, 2020:

But I believe firmly we are in the endtimes, we are actually experiencing the birthpains of Matthew chapter 24 and the prophecies of Joel chapter 2: 28 to 30. But I still stand by what is written, "no one knows the hour nor day." Prophecies are given to give an encouragement to God's people, and to give warning to the unbelievers. With the help of prophecies, we are given warning to consider our ways, our life if it is upright before God. You keep on mentioning about Newton, he is not even a believer of the doctrine of the Trinity.

Cristina Santander (author) from Manila on April 17, 2020:

I am not predicting the time of the end, I still stand by what is written, "no one knows the hour nor the day." But I just noticed recently the changes happening in our world nowadays such as the increase in the occurrence of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, the occurrence of more powerful typhoons, the changes in weather systems. I am wondering what could be the causes of these.

The Logician from now on on April 17, 2020:

Did you know why Newton calculated the time of the end of the earth from the Bible itself. Newton explains the motivation for his prediction as:

“not to assert when the time of the end shall be, but to put a stop to the rash conjectures of fanciful men who are frequently predicting the time of the end, and by doing so bring the sacred prophesies into discredit as often as their predictions fail.”

Christine, do you think Newton might include you in his description of “fanciful men who are frequently predicting the time of the end?”

“and by doing so bring the sacred prophesies into discredit as often as their predictions fail.”

The Logician from now on on April 17, 2020:

So let me get this straight, you are using secular NASA scientists “predictions” to confirm what you think the Bible is predicting?

Did you know the NASA scientists have been proven wrong about asteroids?

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/14/science/asteroi...

Cristina Santander (author) from Manila on April 17, 2020:

I knew Sir Isaac Newton as a great scientist and a mathematician, someone gifted with the mind of a genius but not really a very good theologian. Based from what I have read about his religious life, he is not holding firmly on the doctrine of trinity. Yes I have read about his calculation regarding the end of the world, and he came up with 2060 prediction as the end of the world.

But based from various phenomena the world is experiencing nowadays such as the return of the plagues of Egypt during Moses time, we may not reach that time anymore. The decade 2020 to 2030 will experience great phenomena such as the falling of asteroids and other heavenly bodies. These are all recorded in the Book of Revelation. NASA scientists are anticipating the coming of massive asteroids in the year 2024, 2027 and 2029.

The Logician from now on on April 17, 2020:

Did you know Sir Isaac Newton “was an accomplished and distinguished physicist, mathematician, astronomer, and alchemist? However, few realize that Newton was also a theologian.

Newton used his advanced skill with numbers to predict the precise year that the world as we know it would end. The year that Newton predicted the world would essentially end is the year 2060.”
