The Timing of the Sixth Seal of Revelation
The sixth seal of Revelation as recorded in Revelation 6:12 to 17 begins with a great earthquake, probably a Magnitude 10 mega quake. Then it is followed by the turning of the sun into darkness and the turning of the moon into blood red. After this, falling of stars from heaven takes place. When will these events take place?
Many seekers of Biblical prophecies claimed that the sixth seal of Revelation will be triggered by the arrival of the Planet X/ Nibiru System. As early as now, we are experiencing major upheavals here on earth. Nowadays, we are experiencing more powerful hurricane, more frequent occurrences of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and raging wildfires all over the globe. Many are also witnessing more frequently falling of meteors and fireballs from heaven. According to certain scientists, the approaching of Nibiru System causes all these phenomena.
No one can tell exactly when will Planet X/ Nibiru system will arrive. Its arrival will cause cataclysmic events to take place on earth as described in Revelation chapter 6 verses 12 to 17 which is the sixth seal of Revelation. As I examined the Scripture closely, I am convinced that the timing of the occurrence of the Sixth Seal will take place on the beginning of the second half of the seven-year Tribulation period. The Tribulation Period begins when the Antichrist, the future world dictator confirms a covenant with Israel and the surrounding nation for a period of seven years as written in Daniel 9:27.
The Antichrist will be given a period of seven years to reign. The second half of this period is known as the "Great Tribulation" or what the Bible calls the "Day of the Lord." This is the time when God will pour down His wrath upon the world.
It is recorded 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 sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken."
Both these passages refer also to the same phenomena as written in the sixth seal of Revelation. These cataclysmic events mark the beginning of the "Day of the Lord" which will take place on the second half of the Tribulation period. As early as now, many are able to see sightings of the Planet X/ Nubiru system. According to a source cited by Stephen Benun of Israel News Live, our Solar System is passing through an asteroid cloud which is actually the outer bands of the Nibiru System. This is the reason why many are catching glimpses of heavenly objects such as meteors and fireballs more frequently today than during the previous years.
From these facts, we can conclude that the seven year Tribulation period must be very close to our present time. In fact we are now experiencing the shadows of the Tribulation. We can definitely say that the Harpazo is at hand or really very imminent. I believe Harpazo or the Rapture will happen before the seven-year Tribulation Period. It is about time to be awakened. It is time to forsake all our worldly pursuits and selfish ambitions. It is about time to pursue a relationship with the true and living God.
In order to have a relationship with God, we must first accept the reality of our sinful nature. We are born with a sinful nature which is adverse to the things of the kingdom. Galatians 5:19 to 21 record the evidence of this nature in us:
"The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambitions, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies and the like. I warn you as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God."
Having this sinful nature causes us to live a sinful lifestyle. It is written in Romans 6:23; "The wages of sin is death." This refers not only to the cessation of life but refers also to the second death revealed in Revelation 21:8 as being consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This death also implies eternal separation from God.
Although our sinful life deserves only judgement, God opted to bestow mercy upon us. GOD Himself provided a way for us to escape judgement through His Son Jesus. Christ died on the cross to bear the punishment due to us, that we will not be judged based on our sin. Those who put their faith on Christ finished work on the cross will receive forgiveness and will escape condemnation. As part of believing in Christ, we must abandon our sinful lifestyle and yield every aspect of our life to His Lordship. It is written in the Gospel of John that those who believe in Christ should not remain in darkness.
Christ has risen from the dead to prove the validity of His testimony. He is coming back again very soon to bring redemption to His people. For those who put their faith in Him, can look forward to this blessed hope.
