Day 360: Revelation 4-6
In the previous Chapters of the Book of Revelation we learned that this Book is True™ Prophecy, and Jesus Himself has told us so. We also learned that Jesus is displeased with many things, including sodomy, harlotry, other sexual misdemeanor, and Darwinism. Now it's time to see some action.

Color code:
  • Sinners
  • True Christian™ rewards
  • Weird stuff
  • The sword leitmotiv
As Revelation Chapter 4 opens, we finally see Jesus is His True™ form as a Heavenly Lord. He has a nice throne made of semi-precious stones and sardines, and there are people and eerie beasts around Him to support Him 24/7 for Eternity. We'll see in due course that we'll join these in Creatures in Eternal Worship.

Revelation 4:2-3
And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.


It is the beasts that chant the never-ending hymns that constantly repeat the Goodness of Jesus!
Revelation 4:7-8
And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

At this point, we must also remember an apparently contradictory verse from our earlier readings:

Matthew 6:7
But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

Here on Earth we must constantly come up with new and imaginative prayers, but in Heaven repetitions are the norm, as shown buy the verse above. No more tedious tasks of endless innovation. Our minds can finally rest in the glorious Light that is Jesus (John 1:4). Nice.

In addition, Jesus receives infinite praise and good feedback from the twenty elders, some of who are probably our Pastors and Godly Presidents. We can only pray that we'll be among the chosen ones who can spend the eternity in endless worship by the Throne of Jesus! Nice.

Revelation 5:10-11
The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

Now the stage is set! On to Chapter 5. Action time! We encounter a Book, apparently the Book of Life. It contains many secrets and it is closed with seven seals (emblems, not of the Created Pinniped kind). No-one else but Jesus Himself can open this Book. It is so powerful, and the breaking of each and every seal will cause havoc among the sinners. Praise God!

Revelation 5:5
And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

Once the inhabitants of Heaven realize that Jesus can open the seals, they start praising Him, as now we know that the sinner scum is going to get what it deserves.

Revelation 5:11-12
And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

So, Jesus turns the page to Chapter 6 and breaks the seals one by one.

Seal one! Sinners are deceived into following a false leader.

Revelation 6:4
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.


Yes! It is the four horsemen of Apocalypse! Finally. As they ride onto Earth, nasty things happen to Sinners! Seal 2! The Red Horse. It means WAR! Jesus makes the sinners kill each other to make His work a bit easier later on!

Revelation 6:4
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.

Third seal! The Black Horse of HUNGER! Thing get better and better! FAMINE! Again, many people perish, and there are less revolting unbelievers to slay later on. By utilizing existing infrastructure of weaponry and the capitalistic economy, Jesus avoids getting His own sweet hands dirty before it is time for Him to wield the SWORD!

Revelation 5:4-5
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. 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.

Seal 4! DEATH!
The Pale Horse. At this point a couple of billion dead sinners show the world how mass killings are administered.

Revelation 6:8
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.

Seal 5! The Persecuted get their reward and enter Heaven to be with us! Glory!

Revelation 6:9
And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

Seal 6! No more Horses. Instead, some decent havoc. Now it's time for earthquakes, moving mountains (Matthew 17:20 comes into fruition), island uprooted, etc. etc. Apparently, hundreds of millions of sinners will suffer and perish.

Revelation 6:12-13
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; 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.

We are seeing premonitions of this: Blood Moon. Earthquakes, tsunamis! Why won't the sinner, the Buddhist, the Islamist, the Catholic, the Darwinist listen! These things are all around us. Jesus is coming and He is angry!

Revelation 6:17
For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Next Time: The Final Seal and Brass Music!

Yours in Christ,
