The Greatest Story Ever Told About
The Greatest Man That Ever Lived
                                                         CHAPTER 6

I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures
say in a voice like thunder, “Come!”  I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a
bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.

One thing we need to understand is that the Book of Revelation is written in chronological order.   
There are 7 seals, 7 trumpets, and 7 bowls and other events happening in between those events.  
But they are opened in sequence.   You will find many interpretations all over the internet where
Bible verses from Revelation are applied to current world events, but those scriptures cannot be
used to do that because those events have not happened yet.  You can't take something out of
Revelation Chapter 19 and apply it to something you saw in the news today.  It hasn't happened yet.  
This is where a lot of misinformation comes from and creates confusion to those that try to
understand the Book of Revelation.  It's much easier to take it as it reads, in sequence.  The seals,
trumpets and bowls are opened in order, one to seven.  I also believe that God simply reports on the
events, and if he is involved in making any of them happen it is only very minimally.  In Revelation
Chapter 6 the four horsemen are released.  The first one rides a white horse and is sent to conquer.   
Some think this is the Antichrist because he rides a white horse and goes forth to conquer.  Jesus
will also ride a white horse when he comes back, so some think that this must the the Antichrist who
is imitating Jesus.  This cannot be the antichrist because the antichrist will not come on the scene
until Chapter 13.  Notice that this rider has a bow, but no arrows.  And he is given a crown.  This tells
me that he will conquer through peaceful, legal, and influential means.  His crown signifies that he
will have authority.  And he goes forth determined to conquer.   Conquer what?  How can one
conquer without arrows unless it is a peaceful takeover.   So who in these end times has conquered
the world peacefully?  The only name that comes to mind is the Rothschilds.  For over 200 years
they have established themselves financially to where they now either own or control central banks
in all but three countries, Iran, Cuba, and North Korea.  They also have many other business
interests.   They manipulate markets, control governments, decide when we will have inflationary or
recessionary cycles, set interest rates, and basically control the world’s finances.   From their Bank
of International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland they control their banking and business empire.   It
is estimated that the Rothschilds own half of the world's wealth.  So have they conquered the
world?   Absolutely.  One note here:  No matter who we think this is, we could be right as easily as
we could be wrong because there are no other scriptures that relate to this event.  It is just a guess,
and this is my guess.

When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!”  Then
another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to
make people kill each other. To him was given a large sword.

The second rides a red horse and makes war.  This rider is on a red horse, so some think it's Russia
or China, but I don't think so.  This rider is given permission to take peace from the earth and to
create chaos, rebellion, and war.  And he was given a great sword.   So who in these end times has
the biggest sword?  Who has been invading country after country to try to "democracize" them?  
Who has been the world's bully?  Of course it's the USA.   They still have the largest military strength
and they have been sticking their nose in everyone's business around the world.   With 900 military
bases in 130 countries, they have most countries surrounded including Russia and China.   

The Lamb broke open the third seal. Then I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and
there in front of me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand.  Next, I heard
what sounded like a voice coming from among the four living creatures. It said, “A quart of wheat for a
day’s pay. And three quarts of barley for a day’s pay. But don’t spoil the olive oil and the wine!”

The third rider rides a black horse of economic collapse and/or food shortages "a quart of wheat for a
day's wages", or in our terms, a
few loaves of bread for a day's wages.  Either of those situations
could cause this, and even worse if they both happen.
 But the scariest part is that it will cost a day's
wages just to buy a
few loaves of bread.   This is what will happen when the economy implodes
and/or food shortages occur
.  The dollar will be almost useless.  Governments around the world
have spent far beyond their means and are now in huge debt.  So are cities, states, municipalities,
and most people.  Everyone is on a reckless spending binge and someday that will all have to be
repaid.  This is when one after another there will be massive defaults which will crash the economy
having devastating consequences on those that are unprepared for this event.   The third seal is also
a benchmark for the Tribulation timeline.  This is an event that will affect the entire world and it will
be far more severe than the typical inflationary and recessionary cycles that we have had before.  
This will be a major depression which will affect the entire world because we are so dependant on
each other economically.  When we see this happen, we will know that we are definitely at the third
horseman and know what to expect next.

The Lamb broke open the fourth seal. Then I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!”  
I looked, and there in front of me was a pale horse! Its rider’s name was Death. Following close behind
him was Hell. They were given power over a fourth of the earth. They were given power to kill people
with the sword, hunger and
plague and with the wild beasts of the earth.

The fourth rider rides a pale horse of death, famine, and war.  Riots and war usually follow economic
collapse.  Chaos and rebellion run rampant so nations impose Martial Law to control the people.  The
rider is named Death and Hell follows him.    A few years ago I thought it might be ISIS but not all of it
fit.  Now I think the Corona Virus could very well be the
plague part of it.  The sword may be if Martial
Law is declared or if we have chaos and rebellion, and the killing with beasts
could be because all
viruses have their origin in animals
or it could be a description of the hateful protestors burning and
looting as well as chaos, rebellion or even civil war.
 If this is the case, then the resurrection/rapture
could happen soon after that as the 5th seal happens in heaven
and we won't even know when it
does.  
  

When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of
the word of God and the testimony they had maintained.  They called out in a loud voice, “How long,
Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?”  
Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer, until the full
number of their fellow servants, their brothers and sisters, were killed just as they had been.

These could be believers that were killed by the fourth horseman who was given power over a fourth
of the earth to kill by sword, famine and death.  The Bible says "they were told to wait a little longer
until the number of their fellow servants and brothers who were to be killed as they had been was
completed".  This means that more Christians will be killed like they were.  From this scripture it
seems to indicate that these were Tribulation believers because it says
"..killed as they had been
was completed".
 This could mean that it's part of the whole plan and they were the first.  This fits
with other scriptures where the Antichrist kills Christians.  In Revelation 20 the Bible says
"And I saw
thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those
who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped
the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands.  And they
lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years."
 This is what I believe the verse "wait a little
longer until the number of their fellow servants and brothers who were to be killed as they had been
was completed"
refers to.   These are Tribulation Saints that have been killed and will be resurrected
when all the killing has finished.  This also supports the other scriptures which clearly indicate that
no one goes directly to heaven when they die.   They sleep until the resurrection when they are all
raised at one time.  At this point, the resurrection/rapture has not happened yet, this is why they are
not in heaven (they are under the altar) and why they are told to wait a little longer.  At the
resurrection/rapture if they are not raised along with the rest of the dead in Christ, they will be soon
after when the rest of their fellow servants will be killed.

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 the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and the 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 sixth seal is a very significant event.  This is where God arrives on the scene and announces His
presence.   It is a major supernatural event because it describes a great earthquake, the sun turning
black and the moon red, stars falling to the earth, the sky receding like a scroll, and every mountain
and island being shaken.  It is so bad and so devastating that men hide in caves to take cover.  And
they realize that something incredible has just been unleashed.  They know that this was not man
made, it was from God.   And look what they say
"For the great day of their wrath has come.."  What,
did I read that right?   Is this indeed the Day of the Lord?   The day of God's Wrath?   Well, that's what
they say it is.   Yes, God arrives in grand style and wants us to know that this is the beginning of the
Tribulation.  This is when it officially starts and God get's involved.  Up till now was the warm up,
when all the pieces were put in place, and then God arrives on the scene and the Tribulation starts.   
One thing we need to remember is that the Tribulation period is the Day of the Lord, not the day of
the antichrist, or of the devil, or of the people, it is God's Day and He will start it and finish it His way.  
As Jesus said “about that day no man knows the day or hour”.  And no one does.   No one knows
what day or hour the Tribulation will start, but we do know from this scripture that it will be right
around the day that the huge world wide earthquake happens.   It’s also interesting to note that
earthquakes involving the whole world will happen 4 more times.  Here at the 6th seal, then again
after the  7th seal, then after the 7th trumpet, and then again after the 7th bowl judgment which is the
biggest one, bigger than any that have occured since man was on earth.   There is also another
earthquake that happens after the 2 witnesses are resurrected and called up to heaven in which
7,000 people die.

This scripture says that the sky (heavens) will roll up like a scroll and the stars will fall from the sky.  
This is why people will hide in caves and where ever else they can. If you read my article on The
World that God Made for Us, (link on my homepage) you will understand how the sky (firmament)
could roll up and how the stars which are not very high up or very large could fall from the sky.  
Science tells us that stars are millions of miles away, but the Bible tells us of the universe that God
made, not the one science invented.  God made the earth, sun, moon, and stars and placed them in
the firmament (sky) which is a dome shaped barrier and is not very high up either.
