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.
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.

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.
