by William Frederick, M. Div.

If you have been following The End Times Forecaster blog you know that I have put forth the theory that it is possible that the 70th Week started on 11/10/2009, and that subsequently that would necessitate Jesus returning in late 2016. Based on those assumptions I have also theorized that Seals 1 to 4—the infamous 4 horses of the apocalypse or Revelation—would have to occur before the midpoint of the 70th week.

If the 70th week started on 11/10/2009 then the midpoint—day 1260—will be 4/22/2013. Thus if the assumptions are true, then we will see the 4 Seals of Revelation—the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse ride by 4/22/2013—the midpoint. In other words the Seals should be ready to occur.

Are there any indications that the seals are getting ready to occur? Let’s first consider what is supposed to occur at the Seals.

Revelations 6

1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.

2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

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.

Here is a synopsis of these events from Chapter 3 of The Coming Epiphany

First seal (white horse): Establishment of a world religion and or government through deception.

Second seal (red horse): War and/or anarchy on the earth.

Third seal (black horse): Famine due to crop failures and/or a worldwide economic collapse.

Fourth seal (pale horse): Death of one-quarter of the world’s population by various means, possibly culminating from the first four seals

Let’s pose the question again; Are there any indications that the horsemen are getting ready to ride? Are there any indications that a New World Order is getting ready to be instituted? Are there any indications that WWIII is getting ready to break out? Are there any indications that a food crisis and worldwide economic collapse is ready to occur? Are there any indications that a pandemic is ready to break out?

Unfortunately--if you have been following current events--you are probably aware there are indications that all of these are getting ready to occur. Here are some recent headlines that show how close these things are to occurring.

Seal 1; New World Order

Ahmadinejad says new world order needed

Vatican Calls for New World Economic Order

Seal 2; WWIII

Seal 3: Economic Collapse

Seal 4: Pandemic

Need we see anymore? It is pretty obvious to me from these articles and several others that I have read recently that there are indications that the Seals of Revelation are ready to occur—the horsemen are getting ready to ride.

Here is how I see it playing out; the Mid East erupts in war igniting a nuclear WWIII, which includes a conflict with North Korea, and China taking Taiwan. The economies of the world that were on the brink of collapse are pushed off the fiscal cliff and a worldwide economic disaster occurs. And on top of it all, a pandemic breaks out. The result is that ¼ of the world’s population is killed and the USA and other countries are decimated. The antichrist then comes onto the scene to “solve” the world’s problems and establishes the New World Order, takes over the world, and institutes the cashless monetary “mark” system.

When might this occur? Personally I hope it never occurs, but I know that the Bible is God’s Holy Word and it is 100% accurate—not like many of the other predictive tools out there. So they will occur, and if the assumptions that the 70th Week began on 11/10/2009 and the Second Coming will be in 2016 are correct, then we will see them occur before 4/22/2013. In fact I have further theorized that WWIII may start on 11/23/12. You can read the reasoning behind this date in the post entitled; The 2016 Files: WWIII

Am I 100% sure that the 70th week started on 11/10/2009 and Jesus will return in 2016, and that WWIII will break out on 11/23/12? No; as I have stated many times before, we will not know for sure until we see the seals fulfilled, but at this time that is what the data seems to be indicating to me—WWIII in 2012 and the Second Coming in 2016. The articles above indicating we are close to seeing the Seals opened add credence to this theory.

Here is something else that I just ran across that also supports this theory—An interesting video about the dollar bill, WWIII, and 2012.

I think it is obvious from the video that the dollar bill depicts events foretold by the Seals. Will it be 2012? I see that as the most probable year, but am not sure. But regardless of whether it is the fall of 2012, or another year in the near future I believe that the seals are very close to happening. That conclusion should motivate us to prepare for the coming tribulations.

One of the first steps in preparing for the end times is to know what is going to happen. I have written a Bible prophecy book entitled The Coming Epiphany, which will provide you with an easy to understand explanation of what is going to happen during the end times. Please accept my gift to you, and download a FREE copy of The Coming Epiphany today.

Child of God I hope you are not relying on the rapture to rescue you from these tribulations because the rapture will not occur until after the Sixth Seal is opened. God never promised to deliver us from tribulations like occur during the Seals, but He did promise to deliver us from His wrath that occurs after the Sixth Seal is opened. Thus I hope you are preparing for the times of tribulation that are coming upon the whole world, because when the Seals occur, it will be too late to do anything about it—they will happen suddenly and catch many off guard—they are a trap—an end times guetapens.

If you do not have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and would like to know how you can be saved from the wrath of God that is coming upon the world? Read about God’s Gift of Salvation and be saved today, and you will be rescued from the wrath to come.


  1. Your timing is faulty. The Rapture will occur first as God has promised to remove his church BEFORE the tribulation begins.

    Also, the White Horse is the Anti-Christ not the New World Order

  2. Where in scripture does God promise to remove the church before the tribulation begins?

    Scripture does tell us that the rapture is part of an event known as The Day of the Lord or the Day of Christ. Scripture also tells us that the moon is turned to blood before the Day of the Lord. The moon is turned to blood at the Sixth Seal event. Thus because the rapture is part of the Day of the Lord it must occur after the moon is turned to blood at the Sixth Seal. It is that simple.

    The antichrist is not identified as the rider of the white horse--that is what most assume--but scripture does not state that.

  3. I think the reason that anonymous#1 says that the rider of the white horse is the ac is because the rider holds a bow rather than a sword. Jesus returns on a white horse with a sword so this rider with the bow is thought to be an imposter. It is true that the Scripture does not say this rider is the antichrist, but that is a generally-held position as to his identity for Pre-Trib people.

  4. THX for your explanation. You are correct that scripture does not say that the rider on the white horse is the antichrist. It is assumed by most pre trib adherents because it fits into their theory. I would prefer to look at all the end times scriptural facts and see what theory agrees with them all.

    Here is something to think about; If the rider of the white horse is the antichrist, then who are the riders of the other horses?

  5. Hi Mister Frederick,

    thanks again for your very comprehensive book, aswell as your additional work with this blog, it's very much appreciated and crucially helpful for us christians, aswell maybe also for non-christians to find out about the truth and the upcoming events.

    But in this post it seems to me that you could be affected by the media propaganda concerning Iran. For ten years now I research a LOT about world events and behind the scenes stuff, global manipulation, etc. You have to be aware that Mahmud Ahmadinedschad is a very genuine person, but is bashed upon by the warmongers and luciferian world rulers, because he's not playing along in their game.

    What he says is that the current world order, is the cause for the wars, poverty, and all evil, and is to be defeated to have peace.
    This so far is correct, and I totally agree with him.
    The word "New World Order" is not necessarily correctly translated from what he said. Also his views don't correspond with the New World Order, but in fact his positions are against it, and against the people promoting it.
    You have to be aware of that the new world order will be imposed and fully installed by major forces of world power, specifically, USA and it's organisations, Vatican, Europian Union (USA's "child"), the Zionists, ...
    In the background driven by the upper Freemason grades and other satan serving secret societies.
    Additionally you have to research about the Zionists respectively the Pharisees of today, as they are behind a lot of stuff of world events, and fulfilling satan's plans,
    even Jews protest against these pseudo-jews. (Rev. 3:9 "I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars — I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you.")
    I just wanted to say, you have to be careful with the Media Dogma (controlled by the Zionists) that all Islamic states would be evil and Israel would be good, and the poor victim. The state Israel is totally undermined by Zionists.
    (have a quick look here: http://www.google.com/search?q=jews+protest+zionists&um=1&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi)

    Also bear in mind: "You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come." (Matthew 24:6)
    we have had a lot of that in recent years. The topic with Iran, North Korea, and stuff like that, is just propaganda. The media rings the alarm bells on those for years now, and rang the alarm bells on similar stuff over the last decades! it's nothing new, it's just propaganda imposed by USrael. So it's not a good indicator to use.

    Keep it up, thanks very much for your work!

    1. Thank you for your insightful comments and encouragement. I agree that there is much propaganda out there and one must be careful to discern the truth. I also realize that just as in Jesus' day there are false Jews today who follow satan. I also agree that many political forces are trying to bring about the New World Order and will stop at almost nothing to bring it about.

      At the same time I also realize that God has made a covenant with the Jews and has promised to bless those that bless them and curse those who curse them.

      No country is perfect all have sinned--and as you say the last 2 world wars are part of the illuminati plan to take over the world. The third world war will be centered in the middle east and will produce antichrist as the world ruler. Iran will be right in the middle of it. I wish it were not so.

      I am glad that the Lord will soon be returning to straighten this whole mess out!

    2. God made many contracts with Abraham, Issac and Jacob which passed to the 12 sons of Jacob.

      Judah was given the Scepter (Christ came from him and the throne Jesus Christ will rule from at His return) and Joseph was past down the birthright (the promise of land and the multitudes of people and nations).

      If you equate Jews, Israel, Jacob, Judah, Ephriam, Samaria and Jerusalem as only pertaining to the Jews, then you will never understand the end times.

      God told Abraham that his seed would be as the stars of heaven in number and the Jews are 15 to 20 million worldwide. If the Jews are all there is of the Chosen People then God did not fulfill His promise of hundreds of millions of people or a multitude of nations.

      Here are the players:

      Germany is the Beast Power,10 nations
      The Pope is the False Prophet
      Ephriam is the British Common Wealth of Nations
      America is Ephriam's Brother Manasseh, both 1/2 Egyptian
      The House of Judah are the Jewish people.

      The Time of Jacob's trouble will strike The House of Israel first, British Common Wealth nations and America.
      We will be moving into slavery by the time the Great tribulation starts. Which is why we are not mentioned.
      The first 4 seals started after Christ returned to God the Father, The 4 are termed by Christ "the beginning of sorrows". We are approaching their culminations now.

      If you would like to prove the above one way or the other read J. H. Allen's book, written in 1902, JUDAH'S SCEPTER AND JOSEPH'S BIRTHRIGHT.

  6. Hi Mister Frederick,

    maybe when u have a few minutes, can you elaborate a bit more on this one:

    "[..] that God has made a covenant with the Jews and has promised to bless those that bless them and curse those who curse them."

    I'm thinking you know some places in scripture concerning this,

    thank you,
    best regards

  7. Thanks for the good question. Specifically it states this in Gen 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

    By principal it is echoed through out scripture like when the Egyptians were cursed for their treatment of Israel, Babylon destroyed, the Romans, etc.

    In the end times scripture tells us that all the world will come against Israel culminating in the destruction of the armies of the World at Armageddon.

  8. Do you believe the events related to the seals need to occur in the order that they are opened? If not, why?

  9. I believe the seals will be opened and will occur in order but they may overlap in duration. For instance I believe that we will see WWIII first then during WWIII the world financial system will collapse. So I believe they will happen in order but will overlap in duration. The reason I believe this is because that is what scripture seems to indicate. Also Seal 4 tells us that 1/4 of the world's pop will die from multiple things which can include the previous Seals.

  10. It's me, Against All again.
    Did you change this page dear Sir? But then again I did not tell you of the first horse, no it's not the new world order.
    The first 2 horses have already come and gone.
    (those that will bring about the one world order worship the devil in spirit and in truth, they will bring about the grey horse) [the Georgia guide stones] {Revelation speaks of them - Rev 9:20-21} {demon worship and sorcery}

    The white horse was the period of time in which all the major countries of the world as we now know them were being formed. It began as soon as Christ returned to heaven, after his death and resurrection, and ended some time around when Napoleon was defeated by the Russian forces.

    The red horse period of time was world wars 1 and 2. Hitler road upon the red horse. The sword given to Hitler was his mouth, the words he spoke.

    The black horse period of time is now. Obama will be ridding it.
    I said the price of food would rise by 10%, that was a typo, it's more like 1000%.

    "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."

    A penny (or denarious) is a days wage, so the price of 1 loaf of bread would be about $50-$60. The price of oil and wine will stay low. These things are beginning to happen now.

    About the rapture. The word rapture is not in the Word of God.
    It is clear that the Anti-Christ will come to power before Christ returns. 2 Thessolonians 2:3-4. Matthew 24:27-29 We can see that verse 29 ties in with the end of Revelation 6, which is after all the horses ride. Paul in 1st Thessalonians was referring to Matthew 24:31 which is clearly after our tribulation (which is not the great tribulation of the world, but rather the tribulation upon Christians worldwide)

    The anti-christ coming to power first happens for the benefit of non-believers, giving them a clear sign that the words in the Bible are true, and a chance to repent.

    The things I am telling you are as true as 2+2=4. You can believe them or not. But once things become more clear you will remember these letters of mine and solve the riddle of my name.

    I pray that the Lord enlarges you heart and mind, may the God of all existence be with you dear sir, continue in the faith, and please pray for me as well, that I seek perfection.

    1. Obviously I disagree with your interp of scripture regarding the seals. I believe that they all occur within the 70th week.

      Correct that the word rapture is not in scripture, but neither is the word cigarette. But scripture clearly tells of a catching up to heaven which is called the rapture.

      You are free to believe as you choose, but I only believe what I see in scripture and not just select passages, but all of scripture.

      No one will ever achieve perfection this side of heaven, but it is a good thing to strive for.

  11. I believe so god woke up the fourth member this year plus the violence and sin in intoxicating off people is getting much worse the self indulgence self caring of people is at a bad take too plus I was able to summon my pale horse last night

  12. When the Son of Man comes it will be just like the days before the flood.

  13. umm. hey Mr. William Frederick, did you use the King James Version as your guide in researching for the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse?

    1. Umm. Did you read this "Am I 100% sure that the 70th week started on 11/10/2009 and Jesus will return in 2016, and that WWIII will break out on 11/23/12? No; as I have stated many times before, we will not know for sure until we see the seals fulfilled,"

      The 4 horsemen will ride soon, regardless of what Bible you use.
