Where are we in the end times? As most of you are aware I believe that it is highly possible that as of the fall of 2019 the last 7 years began. A possible confirmation of this theory is the fact that the Corona Virus was let loose in the fall of 2019 and was accompanied by a sign in the heaven that may have indicated that Seal 1 has been opened.
Seal 1 is the rider on the White Horse who is given a crown (corona) and goes forth to conquer the world.
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. Rev 6
So if this theory, that the last 7 years began in the fall of 2019 and the first Seal has been opened, is correct, then Seal 2 will be opened next.
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.
I have always believed that Seal 2 will be a Mid-East centered WW3 and it is articles like the one below that tell me that it could happen at any time.
perfect setup has just been created to start an actual shooting war in the
Middle East and this will likely develop very fast.
Minister Benny Gantz informed French president Macron that Israel will
"prevent Iranian oil from entering Lebanon."
then announced the Iranian Navy will protect oil tankers heading to Lebanon.
we have an irresistible force heading directly at an immovable object. BOOM!
And this just popped up in the news today.
So are we at the point of WW3 or are we hearing just more “wars and rumors of wars?” Time will tell, but let’s keep these pieces of data in mind.
If valid those pieces of data tell us that we are getting close to seeing major end times events take place. The first one, if valid, gives a parameter for Seal 2 and the second, a parameter for when the UFO/antichrist may first make an appearance and then sometime after take over the world at the midpoint.
We are also been hearing of rumors of Seal 3—the worldwide financial collapse—for a long time, we all know it’s just a matter of time.
And it’s articles like the ones below that remind me that Seal 4 may not be that far away.
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.
Sadly I realize that after the first 4 horses trample upon the earth, which are the actions of men aligned with satan, one out of four will be dead and the world will be begging for a “savior” to rescue them.
The “savior” they will follow will be the infamous antichrist who will perform the abomination of desolation and bring about the Seal 5 mark of the beast/persecution of Jews and Christians.
Thankfully this will be followed by the Seal 6 raptureof Christians.
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;
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.
14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? Rev 6
And when is the Sixth Seal opened? Before the Day of the Lord or Day of Christ.
The sun shall moon shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come. Acts 2:20
And what happens at the Day of Christ? The rapture.
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
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
Here is the timing: Sixth Seal—Day of Christ--Rapture
So are we in the time period between Seal 1 and 2? Who knows, as the saying goes “we see through a glass darkly.” But if we are, the most probable start day I see is 10/19/2019, and the following chart would apply.
BTW; a possible confirmation of this theory could occur on 8/14/2021, which would be day #666—just a thought.
So I do not know for sure whether we are in the 70th Week. The telltale sign I look for is the Seal 2 Mid-East centered WW3. I think then we will know for sure. But if we are in between Seal 1 and 2, then the days ahead are going to become increasingly difficult. We must draw close to the Lord, remember His wonderful promises, and prepare as best we can.
1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. Ps 23
1 Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
6 The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
7 He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.
8 The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
9 He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.
10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
13 Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him.
14 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.
15 As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
16 For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.
17 But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;
18 To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.
19 The Lord hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.
20 Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
21 Bless ye the Lord, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.
22 Bless the Lord, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the Lord, O my soul. Ps 103
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Luke 21:36
