Chapter Six



Revelation 6:1-17. . ( sixof the seven seals of Satan's "Oppression")


Note: The mystery of the seals, the exact order of events, and the FOUR 'Horsemen of the Apocalypse' are easily solved by Messiah Y'Shua himself in Matthew 24. I will present verses from Matthew 24 as required for interpretation. Please understand that it is Satan's will (human nature) to place the entire world under its control, and to cause mankind's nature to destroy mankind. The opening of "The Seals" made these plagues available to Satan (human nature). The four horsemen are representative of the methods it will use. These plagues are due to mankind's lack of obedience to YHVH Commandments, whereas mankind unwittingly gives Satan (human nature) the power to accomplish its tasks. These seals were opened approximately 2000 years ago, and their plagues continue to intensify.


Matthew 24:3-8
3 As he
(Y'Shua) sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things be? What is the Sign of your Coming, and of the end of the (this) world (not the destruction of the Earth, but end of Satan's rule on Earth)?"
4 Y'Shua answered them,
"Be careful that no one leads you astray (Anti-messiahs).
5 For many will come in my name (reputation), saying, 'I am the Messiah,' and will lead many astray.
6
You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you aren't troubled, for all this must happen, but the end (of Satan's world) is not yet.
7
For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there will be famines, plagues, and earthquakes in various places.
8
But all these things are the beginning of birth (something must get born) pains (Sorrows).


I saw that the Lamb
(Y'Shua) opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures (Seraphim) saying, as with a voice of thunder, "Come and see!"
2 I saw, and behold, a
WHITE HORSE, and he who sat on it had a Bow. A Crown was given to him, and he came forth conquering, and to conquer (Satan's replacement Messiah and the resultant syncretic religions).


Note: The White Horse is symbolic of the oppression caused by the Christo-pagan churches by reason of their false messiah (catholic IHS) on a white horse. The symbolic horseman appears to be the True Messiah with his church, but is actually a wolf in sheep's clothing. This false (universal or catholic) church became allied with the militaries (The Bow) and the powers of Nations (The Crown), and began to force her false Mystery Religion of pagan traditions (whitewashed with the stolen identity of the True Messiah) on all nations that were conquered by Rome; and many innocent people died "In the name of Christ." This "Copy Cat" (syncretic Christo-pagan) religion will dominate the world, but in reality will be the religion of the "Anti-Messiah" (antichrist).

In 1798AD the overt oppression of catholicism was quelled, but the
covert oppression continues. The military power of false religion will return, and many innocent people will yet die. Beware of Ecumenism.


3 When he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, "Come!"
4 Another came forth, a
RED HORSE. To him who sat on it was given to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another. There was given to him a great sword.


Note: The Red Horse is symbolic of the 'Nations Rising Against Nations and Kingdoms Against Kingdoms.' This seal has been "In Effect" since just before the fall of the original Roman Empire. There has been far too many wars to even consider naming them in this note. Continued limited warfare with the threat of a nuclear holocaust will eventually bring about a "New World Order" under Satan's control.


5 When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, "Come and see!" I saw, and behold, a
Black Horse. He who sat on it had a balance in his hand.
6 I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures
(Seraphim) saying, "A measure of wheat for a denarius, and three measures of barley for a denarius! Don't damage the oil and the wine!"


Note: The Black Horse is symbolic of Economic Power and Control. This control would include World Trade Sanctions, Embargoes, Tariffs, Stocks, Commodities, Gasoline and Oil Prices, etc. . This seal has been "In Effect" for quite awhile, and is presently the preferred method of controlling World Powers or Nations. I find it very interesting that both the oil and the horse are black.


7 When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, "Come and see!"
8 I saw, and behold, a
PALE HORSE. He who sat on him, his name was Death. Hades (the grave) followed with him. Authority over one fourth of the earth, to kill with the sword, with famine, with death, and by the wild animals of the earth was given to them.


Note: The Pale Horse is symbolic of major Sickness and Starvation. This seal has been "In Effect" for a very long time, ever since mankind began dwelling together in large cities where a lack of proper sanitation, and the ability to produce and storage large quantities and varieties of uncontaminated food became a source for diseases. In recent decades mankind appears to have gained the upper hand on these problems, but this is only an illusion. Antibiotics for example are losing the war against germs, new diseases are on the increase, the worlds population is exploding, and very soon mankind will be at war in a major way with the Pale Horseman.
The lack of food will be a major contributor to this evil.



9 When he opened the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been killed for the word of G-d, and for the testimony which they held.
10 They cried with a loud voice, saying,
"How long, Master, the Holy and True, do you not judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?"
11 There was given to each one of them a white robe. It was said to them that they should rest yet for a little time, until their fellow servants and their brothers, who would also be killed even as they were, had been fulfilled.


Note: The statement underneath the altar refers those True Followers who are either still alive or are still resting in the Earth (Grave or Hades, which resides beneath all three Heavens), but YHVH retains them in His memory (Mind or Pneuma). Therefore, the reference to their cries which were most probably their death cries & prayers to YHVH. I am sure YHVH will avenge their blood, because the memory of them lives in His Holy Pneuma (Ruwach, Mind).

Additional Note: It appears that the prayers of all the saints referred to in Rev. 5:8 & Rev. 8:3 , especially refers to the prayer of the Saints underneath the altar in Rev. 6:10 above ("How long, Master, The Holy and True, do You not judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?"), because it appears that once YHVH smells the sweet smell of their prayers mixed with incense, His angel takes the (golden) censer (filled with prayers), and he fills it even more with the fire of the altar, and throws it on the earth. Where it is followed by thunders, sounds, lightnings, and an earthquake; and then each of The First Six Trumpets of YHVH's Wrath sequentially announce YHVH's vengeance on the wicked inhabitants of the Earth; who are not protected by "The Shema." (Romans 12:19)


Matthew 24:9-28


9 Then they (the Powers behind the Four Horsemen) will deliver you (My Chosen or My Two Witnesses or the remnant of the Smyrna and Philadelphia Assemblies) up to oppression, and will kill you. You will be hated by all of the nations for my name's sake.
10 Then will many stumble, and will deliver up one another, and will hate one another.
11 Many false prophets will arise, and will lead many astray.
12 Because iniquity will be multiplied, the love of many will grow cold.
13 But he who endures to the end
(of his life), the same will be saved (Mark 13:13).
14 This gospel of the kingdom
(available on this website) will be preached in the whole world for a testimony to all the nations, and then the end (of Satan's World) will come.
15 When, therefore, you see the 'Abomination of Desolation',
(Daniel Chapter 11) which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand),
16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.
17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take out things that are in his house.
18 Let him who is in the field not return back to take his cloak.
19 But woe to those who are with child and to nursing mothers in those days!
20 Pray that your flight will not be in the winter, nor on a Sabbath
(obviously YHVH's Holy Sabbaths are still important to Him. The 7th Day Sabbath and the Annual Sabbaths).
21
for then will be great oppression (by Satan or evil), such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever will be.
22
Except those days had been shortened, no flesh would have been saved. But for the elect's sake, those days will be shortened.


Note: The Oppression of the Four Horsemen, which actually began after Messiah was self-sacrificed will continue to grow (wax) worse and worse until YHVH ends it. I believe that this oppression included "The Crusades," "Inquisition," "Holocaust," a myriad of other events, and possibly more as we near the end of Satan's reign on Earth. The current "Ecumenical" movement by the catholic church and her daughter churches bears watching.


23 Then if any man will tell you, 'Behold, here is Messiah,' or, 'There,' don't believe it.
24 For there will arise false Messiahs
(even Jesus), and false prophets, and they will show great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect (The First Fruits OR The Chosen).
25 Behold, I have told you beforehand.
26 If therefore they tell you, 'Behold, he is in the wilderness!' Don't go out; 'Behold, he is in the inner chambers,' don't believe it.
27 For as the lightning comes forth
(in an instant) from the east, and is seen even to the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man (Messiah Y'Shua).
28
For wherever the carcass (of those without "The Shema" at the First Resurrection) is, there will the vultures (or birds) be gathered (for the coming Marriage Supper) together (after the Last Trump).


Note: The first five seals are the beginning of the "Great Tribulation" period. The "Great Tribulation" period will reach its peak when the sixth seal is opened (with heavenly signs). After the plagues of the sixth seal end, then the "Great and Glorious Day of YHVH" will soon begin (Rev.6:17 below). This is known as the "Day of YHVH" (or Lord G-d) throughout scripture and should not to be confused with the "Great Tribulation" of Satan (natural man's evil against man). The "Heavenly Signs" occur before the Day of YHVH (Joel 2:31) and after the "Great Tribulation" (Matthew 24:29).

Therefore,
"The Heavenly Signs" (of The Sixth Seal) are the dividing point between "The Great Tribulation" of Satan's influence, and "The Great and Glorious Day of YHVH."


12 I saw when he opened the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake. The sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood.


Note: The 6th. Seal is a prelude to "The Great and Glorious Day of the Lord, YHVH." This chapter denotes those "Heavenly and Earthly Signs" that will preceed the opening of the Seventh Seal (see Acts 2:16-21 below).


13 The stars
(meteors?, satellites?, asteroids?) of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its unripe figs when it is shaken by a great wind.
14 The sky was removed like a scroll when it is rolled up. Every mountain and island were moved out of their places
(shifted).
15 The kings of the earth, the princes, the commanding officers, the rich, the strong, and every slave and freeman, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains.
16 They told 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,
17 for the "Great Day of His Wrath" has come; and who is able to stand?"


1 John 2:18
(The "End Times" began shortly before the Apostles died)

18
Little children, these are the end times, and as you heard that the Anti-Messiah (The Trinity movement) is coming, even now many Anti-Messiahs (false apostles and false churches claiming to be true believers) have arisen. By this we know that it is the end times.


Note: Of course, what was "is coming" for John, has already become a "has already come for us" today statement. We can (now) actually point to the Christo-pagan Roman emperor Constantine and the false church (Roman catholic-christian church) for the false Trinity doctrine (The Anti-Messiah doctrine of The Nicene Creed). See also, "The Arian Controversy."



Jeremiah 30:22-24


Note: The "Latter Days," went into effect sometime after the 1,260 years (1,260 prophetic days) of overt oppression (of the True Saints) by the catholic church, when the overt military might of the catholic church was crushed in 1798AD. However, the covert oppression continues! It is very interesting that this just happened to be at approximately the same time as the movement to America by a myriad of persecuted pilgrims, and at the time of American Independence.


22
You shall be my people, and I will be your G-d.
23
Behold, the tempest of YHVH, even his wrath, is gone forth, a sweeping tempest: it shall burst on the head of the wicked.
24 The fierce anger of YHVH shall not return, until he has executed, and until he will have performed the intents of his heart;
in the latter days you shall understand it.
(These are The Latter Days!)



Acts 2:16-21 (the "Last Days" are the same as the "Latter Days.")

16 But this is what has been spoken through the prophet Joel (in chapter 2) (This is where we are today in prophecy):

17 'It will be in the last days, says G-d, I will pour forth of my Spirit on all flesh. Your sons and your daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions. Your old men will dream dreams.
18 Yes, and on my servants and on my handmaidens in those days, I will pour out my Spirit, and they will prophesy.
19
(then)
I will show wonders in the sky above (Heavenly Signs), and signs on the earth beneath; Blood, and fire, and billows of smoke.
20
The sun will be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood,
Before "The Great and Glorious Day of the Lord, G-d" (YHVH) comes.

21 It will be, that whoever will call on the name of the Lord, G-d (YHVH, according to the example of Messiah Y'Shua), will be saved.'



Matthew 24:29-37
(verses 29-37 are generalizations)

29 But immediately after the "Oppression" (of Satan or evil) of those days (we are still currently in the 'Oppression Period' of the first five seals), (Sixth Seal Opened with Heavenly Signs) the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give her light, the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken;
30 and then (soon afterwards) the sign of the Son of Man (Messiah Y'Shua) will appear in the (first heaven) sky (clouds). Then all the tribes of the earth will mourn (wail), and they will see the Son of Man (Messiah Y'Shua) coming on the clouds of the sky (first heaven) with power and Great Glory.
31 He will send forth his angels with a great sound of a trumpet


Note: The first six trumpets of Revelation are to be understood according to the Sacred Calendar Holy Day of "Rosh Hashanah" (Feast of Trumpets). The Last or Seventh Trumpet is to be understood according to "Yom Kippur" (The Day of Atonement), and then, at "The Last Trump," (sounded by Messiah himself) The Messiah will gather together (resurrect to eternal life) his elect (Chosen Few) from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.


32 "Now from the fig tree (Spiritual Israel?) learn her parable (physical to Spiritual Parallel). When its branch has now become tender, and puts forth its leaves, you know that the summer is near.
33 Even so you, also, when you see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Most assuredly I tell you, this generation will not pass away, until all these things are accomplished.


Note: Even though the first five seals have all been opened, and are still "In Effect," the sixth seal has yet to be realized. However, once it has been opened, the powerful effect of it will apparently last for less than a lifetime (the passing of a generation). We are very near the end of The Fifth seal even as you read this message. Watch for The Heavenly Signs!


35 Heaven and Earth (as we know it) will (ultimately) pass away, but my words will not pass away.
36 But no one knows of that day and hour (but the vigilant will have the understanding to interpret prophetic signs), not even the angels of Heaven, but my (Y'Shua's) Father (YHVH) only.
37 As the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man (unexpectedly, for the majority of the world).









Chapter Seven

(What will occur during the first prophetic half-hour when the Seventh Seal is opened)




Revelation 7:1-17 (The Preparation Period for "The Great and Glorious Day of the Lord G-d")

After this
(The heavenly and Earthly signs of The Sixth Seal), I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, so that no wind would blow on the earth, or on the sea, or on any tree (a Great Calm or silence comes upon the Earth at the opening of The Seventh Seal. See Revelation chapter 8:1).
2 I saw another angel ascend from the sunrise
(east), having the (protective) seal of the living G-d. He cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it (the power) was given to harm the Earth and the Sea,
3 saying,
("maintain silence one half hour") "Don't harm the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, until (after) we have sealed (aphragizo - "protected" - as a figure of speech - by the Holy Spirit) the bondservants of our G-d on their foreheads (see Shema, the righteous attributes of their minds or pneuma)!"
4
I heard the number of those
(True Messianic "Seed of Abraham") who were sealed, one hundred forty-four thousand (total), sealed out of every tribe of the children of Israel (Jacob):
5 Of the tribe of Judah were sealed twelve thousand, Of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand, Of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand,
6 Of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand, Of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand, Of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand,
7 Of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand, Of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand, Of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand,
8 Of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand, Of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand, Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.


Note: I presently believe that Rev. 7:1-8 describes the Smyrna Assembly, because of the great atrocities suffered by the Jewish believers in Y'Shua, but I could be wrong in this matter.
On a mysterious note: The tribe of "Dan" has been left out, and the half-tribe of Manasseh has been added. Which follows the same pattern as the twelve apostles, minus Judas, plus Paul.

Note:
The rest of this chapter (Revelation 7:9-17) jumps forward to a future time that does not occur until after the sound of "The Seventh" or "Last Trumpet," and is therefore, out of sequence. Additionally, it appears that the sequence of events of Revelation 7:1-8 is not continued until Revelation 11:4.

Special Note: Most people do not realize that there was a Special Reason for Physical Circumcision that turns out to be a Physical to Spiritual Parallel (anthropomorphism) relevant to a deeper understanding of the "Revelation" mystery of being "Sealed in the Forehead."

Physically, as for Ancient Israel, The Physical Seed of Abraham: It was to PROTECT THE OBEDIENT through blind faith while in their ignorance from the not yet humanly understood (invisible) dangers of physical existence, and it had (at least) one important additional quality as a physical way to identify (by inspection) YHVH's Physically Chosen People (at that time in history). Physical circumcision for the ancient Israelite (YHVH's First Bride) was an expression of YHVH's love for them (at the very least) as a form of protection from physical infection in those days; and for Israel, by being circumcised, it was an expression of Faith and Trust in YHVH to teach them through laws and ordinances to do those things necessary to obtain a high quality of physical life.

Spiritually, as for The Spiritual Seed of Abraham: The physical circumcision of Ancient Israel was a "Token" or shadow of things to come, and by that I mean it is the "Circumcision of the Heart", (Strong's #2588, Kardia, does not mean the blood pumping organ, but the "MIND" or thoughts or feelings), which also PROTECTS THE OBEDIENT through blind faith in their ignorance from both physical and (invisible) Spiritual dangers that may or may not be fully understood, because it is "The Mind" that is the dwelling place of natural pneuma or the Holy Pneuma (Holy Spirit); and it has or will have (at least) one important additional quality as a Spiritual way to identify (by Spiritual inspection or discernment) YHVH's Spiritually Chosen People; because physical circumcision was or still is (by example) the precursor for YHVH's servants being "Sealed in their Forehead" (see Shema) as a Spiritual means of identification. Simply stated, "Circumcision of the Heart" is the same thing as "Circumcision of the Mind" or " Having received the Holy Pneuma for the Greek" or "Having receiving the Haggios Ruwach for the Hebrew" or "Having received the Holy Spirit." For it is the Holy Spirit (Mind of YHVH) that guides us and protects us.

So therefore, do you need to be physically circumcised for salvation? No, but it is still a tool for teaching Spiritual truths in the hands of YHVH's servants. However, we must be Spiritually circumcised to received YHVH's "Seal in the Forehead" or "Holy Spirit."

Having The Holy Spirit is the "Seal in the Forehead."

Does physical circumcision still have physical benefits (blessings)? Yes.
Does Spiritual circumcision have both Spiritual and physical benefits
(blessings)? Absolutely!



9
After these things (after all the Seals are open, and all the Trumpets Sound) I saw, and behold, a great multitude, which no man could number, out of every nation and of all tribes, peoples, and languages, standing before the throne (of YHVH) and (also) before the Lamb (Messiah Y'Shua), dressed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands.


Note: The Seventh Seal is the 'Seal' of "The Seven Shofars" (Or Trumpet sounds). For out of the "Seventh Seal" comes all of "The Seven Shofars." "Yom Teruah" represents The Blowing of Shofars (as in a battle), while Rosh HaShanah represents the entire "Seventh Month" OR "The Seventh Seal," as a "New Beginning," which of course has to begin with "Yom Teruah;" and if you look into the night sky (during this time period) you will see "The NEW Moon." This NEW Moon symbolizes a period of time, in the NOT to distant future, when The Earth will be in Spiritual Darkness, BUT after the sound of the Seven Shofars LIGHT will return (In The Clouds AND symbolized by a waxing moon), and prevail for a thousand years (symbolized by The FULL Moon of Sukkot). The First Six Trumpets are represented by Yom Teruah (Trumpets), and The Seventh Trumpet Sound is the beginning of Yom Kippur (Atonement). There is a very strong message in this relationship between The Seven Seals, YHVH's Sacred Seventh month, and The Seven Trumpet blasts of The Shofars; and this message is contained and understood through obedience to the laws of YHVH's Sacred High Sabbaths. Too bad Christianity chooses disobey YHVH's Laws (of Love), and worship the Sun on the birthday of Mithra (December 25th).


10 They cried with a loud voice, saying, "Salvation be to our G-d, who sits on the throne, and (also) to the Lamb."
11 All the angels were standing around the throne, the
(twenty-four) elders, and the four living creatures (Seraphim); and they fell before the throne on their faces, and worshiped YHVH.
12 saying,
"Amen! (Truthfully or Verily, I say) Blessing, glory, wisdom, thanksgiving, honor, power, and might, be to our G-d (YHVH) forever and ever! Amen (Y'Shua is the "Amen" or the "Truthful and Trustworthy Servant of YHVH)
.
13 One of the
(twenty-four) elders answered, saying to me, "These who are arrayed in white robes, who are they, and where did they come from?"
14 I told him,
"My lord, you know." He said to me, "These are those ("Chosen Few") who came out of the great oppression (of Satan, which is still occurring as a covert action). They washed their robes, and made them white in (Messiah Y'Shua) the Lamb's blood (sacrifice).
15
Therefore are they before the throne of G-d (YHVH), they serve Him (through Y'Shua) day and night in His temple. He (YHVH) who sits on the throne will spread His tent over them.
16
They will never be hungry, neither thirsty any more; neither will the sun beat on them, nor any heat;
17
for the Lamb (Y'Shua) who is in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and will guide them to living springs of waters. YHVH will wipe away every tear from their eyes."








Chapter Eight

(The Seventh Seal, and the First Four Trumpets)

and

(The Wrath of YHVH on The Wicked Inhabitants of The Earth)






Revelation 8:1-13 (John returns to the main time line)

When he opened the
seventh seal, there followed a silence in heaven for about half an hour.



Note: This is the point where YHVH's bondservants symbolically receive a (Shema) protective seal on their forehead (See Revelation 7:3). However, having the Holy Spirit of YHVH will assure the True Believer that he or she will receive the Shema.


2 I saw the seven angels (Aggelos or Messengers) who stand before G-d, and seven trumpets were given to them (The Sacred Seven month, The Sabbath Millennium, and The Seventh Seal are symbolically one in the same thing).


Note: The word AGGELOS is one of those words that was improperly translated as Angel(s). While it is true that Angels are messengers of YHVH, not all of YHVH's messengers (Aggelos) are angels. One of YHVH's Messengers was (is) the Messiah, and all others are considered ministers (pastors). See Strong's Concordance #32 in the Greek reference section.

Note: See Holy Sabbaths Part 5

3 Another Messenger (Aggelos) came and stood over the altar, having a golden censer. Much incense was given to him, that he should add it to the prayers of all the saints (as per Revelation 5:8) on the golden altar which was before the throne.
4 The smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up before G-d
(YHVH) out of the Messenger's (Aggelos') hand.
5 The Messenger
(Aggelos) took the (golden) censer, and he filled it with the fire of the altar, and threw it on the earth. There followed thunders, sounds, lightnings, and an earthquake (Here YHVH literally answers all the prayers of The Saints).


6 The seven Aggelos
(Messengers) who had the seven trumpets (of the seventh seal) prepared themselves to sound.


Note: YHVH begins to PURIFY the Earth by removing the wicked inhabitants of the Earth from the Earth (This is not "The Great White Throne Judgement," but a purification process). See Rapture of The Wicked. The Saints will remain on Earth to witness this series of events, and they will not be harmed due to the protective seal of The Shema (given by the power of the Holy Spirit) on their foreheads (a Righteousness seeking mentality).

Note: Purification is a Two Step Process: (Step 1) Love, (Step 2) Death.
For all who call upon the name of The Lord G-d through the Love of Messiah will be saved; the wicked die!


7 The first Aggelos sounded, and there followed hail and fire, mingled with blood, and they were thrown on the earth. One third of the earth was burnt up, and one third of the trees were burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up
(but not The Bondservants or Saints).


8 The second Aggelos sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea. One third of the sea became blood,
9 and one third of the creatures which were in the sea died, those who had life. One third of the ships were destroyed
(but not The Bondservants or Saints).


10 The third Aggelos sounded, and a great star fell from the sky, burning like a torch, and it fell on one third of the rivers, and on the springs of the waters.
11 The name of the star is called "Wormwood." One third of the waters became wormwood. Many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter
(but not The Bondservants or Saints).


12 The fourth Aggelos sounded, and one third of the sun was struck, and one third of the moon, and one third of the stars; so that one third of them would be darkened, and the day wouldn't shine for one third of it, and the night in the same way.


13 I saw, and I heard an eagle, flying in mid heaven, saying with a loud voice, "Woe! Woe! Woe!
(Three "Woes" are coming) for those (wicked) who dwell on the earth (but not The Bondservants or Saints), because of the other voices of the trumpets of the three Aggelos, who are yet to sound.








Chapter Nine

The Fifth and Sixth Trumpets Sound

The Beginning of "Woes" and "The Three Plagues"
of
The Seventh Seal






Revelation 9:1-21
(YHVH's Wrath or "Purification" of the wicked inhabitants of the Earth continue)

The fifth Aggelos sounded, and I saw a star
(Satan or The Day Star) from the sky fallen to the Earth. The key to the pit of the abyss (Tartarus Hell) was given to him (The fifth Aggelos).
2 He
(The fifth Aggelos) opened the pit of the abyss (Tartarus Hell), and smoke (a thick cloud of demonic spirits) went up out of the pit, like the smoke from a great furnace. The sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke from the pit (the demonic spirits were everywhere).
3 Then out of the smoke came forth locusts on the earth, and power was given to them, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
4 They were told that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree, but only those
(wicked) men who do not have YHVH's seal on their foreheads (Shema).
5 They were given power not to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion, when it strikes a man.
6 In those days men will seek death, and will in no way find it. They will desire to die, and death will flee from them.
7 The shapes of the locusts were like horses prepared for war. On their heads were something like gold crowns, and their faces were like men's faces.
8 They had hair like women's hair, and their teeth were like those of lions.
9 They had breastplates, like breastplates of iron. The sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots, or of many horses rushing to war.
10 They have tails like those of scorpions, and stings. In their tails is their power to harm men for five months.
11 They have over them as king the Aggelos of the abyss
(Tartarus Hell). His name in Hebrew is "Abaddon," (Strong's #3, Destroying Aggelos) but in Greek, he has the name "Apollyon".


12 The first woe is past. Behold, there are still two
(more) woes coming (even after this).


13 The sixth Aggelos sounded. I heard a voice from the
horns (Strong's #2768, "keras" - "Ram's Horns" or horn of the head, literal or figurative) of the golden altar which is before G-d,
14 saying to the sixth Aggelos who had one trumpet,
"Free the four Aggelos who are bound at the great river Euphrates" (This is probably the voice of Messiah Y'Shua, who is "The Lamb" with seven horns in Rev. 5:6 - supporting the fact that the Seventh Seal and its Seven Trumpets are of YHVH and His Lamb).

15 The
four Aggelos were freed who had been prepared for that hour and day and month and year, so that they would kill one third of mankind (those without YHVH's protective seal).
16 The number of the armies of the horsemen was
two hundred million. I heard the number of them.
17 Thus I saw the horses in the vision, and those who sat on them, having breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of lions. Out of their mouths
(or at their command) proceed (three plagues) fire, smoke, and sulfur.

18 By these three plagues were one third of mankind killed
: by the fire, the smoke, and the sulfur, which proceeded (at their command) out of their mouths.

19 For the power of the horses is in their mouths, and in their tails. For their tails are like serpents, and have heads, and with them they harm.


Note:
"In their mouths," and "In their tails" are most probably figures of speech that in some sense represent the beginning or at the utterance (mouths), and the ending or through to the end (tails) of the three plagues. In other words, these three plagues are "Enduring." Again this is only one possible interpretation.



20 The rest of mankind, who were not killed with these plagues,
didn't repent (were not Purified) of the works of their hands, that they wouldn't worship demons, and the idols (includes, but is not limited to, religious medallions, crucifixes, statues of Mary, Rock Stars, etc. ), of gold, and of silver, and of brass, and of stone, and of wood; which can neither see, nor hear, nor walk.

21 They didn't repent of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their
(Spiritual) sexual immorality, nor of their thefts.







Chapter Ten

The Mystery
of The Seven Thunders, and the Little Book







Revelation 10:1-11 (Messiah portrayed as a Mighty Aggelos)

I saw another mighty Aggelos
(a Mighty Messenger, like unto an Archangel or a Pastor or a Ministering Spirit) coming down out of the sky, clothed with a cloud. A rainbow (greenish glow as in Rev. 4:3) was on his head. His face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire.

2 He had in his hand a little book open
(Book of Life). He set his right foot on the sea, and his left on the land (This is no mere angel).

3 He cried with a loud voice, as a lion roars. When he cried, the seven thunders uttered their voices.

4 When the seven thunders sounded, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from the sky saying,
"Seal up the things which the seven thunders said, and don't write them."

Joel 2:11 YHVH thunders His voice before His Army (of two hundred million horsemen); For His forces are very great; For he is strong who obeys His command;
For the
"Day of YHVH" is great and very awesome, And who can endure it? (Answer: YHVH's Chosen Few, who have YHVH's protective seal, Shema or Holy Spirit.)


5 The Aggelos who I saw standing on the sea and on the land lifted up his right hand to the sky,

6 and swore by Him
(YHVH) who lives forever and ever, who created heaven (the atmosphere, clouds, sky) and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it, that there will no longer be delay (the kingdoms of the world will become the Kingdom of YHVH under the authority of Messiah Y'Shua),

7 but in the days of the voice of the seventh Aggelos, when he is about to sound
(The Last Trump), then the mystery of G-d is finished, as he declared to his servants, the prophets.

8 The voice which I heard from heaven, again speaking with me, said,
"Go, take the book which is open in the hand of the Aggelos (Messiah) who stands on the sea and on the land."

9 I went to the Aggelos, saying,
"Give me the little book." He said to me, "Take it, and eat it up. It will make your belly bitter, but in your mouth it will be as sweet as honey" (This appears to be YHVH's way of saying, 'I have good news and I have sad news,' such as, "Many Called but few chosen."

10 I took the little book out of the Aggelos's hand, and ate it up
(Spiritually or mentally consumed it). It was as sweet as honey in my mouth. When I had eaten it, my belly was made bitter.

11 He told me,
"You must prophesy again over many peoples, nations, languages, and kings."





Chapter Eleven

The Two Witnesses are those who "Keep the Word of YHVH"





Revelation 11:1-19
Shifted back in time to Revelation 7:8

A reed like a rod was given to me. One said, "Rise, and measure G-d's temple, and the altar, and those who worship in it.
2 Leave out the court which is outside of the temple, and don't measure it, for it
(the outside court) has been given to the gentiles (not the gentile believers, but the unbelieving). They will tread (as conquerors would) the holy city under foot for forty-two months (This is a 3 1/2 prophetic months or 1,260 years).


Isaiah 43:11-12

I, even I, am YHVH; and besides me there is no savior. I have declared, and I have saved, and I have shown; and there was no strange god among you: therefore you are my witnesses, says YHVH, and I am G-d.


Isaiah 44:8

Don't fear, neither be afraid: haven't I declared to you of old, and shown it? You are my witnesses. Is there a G-d besides me? Indeed, there is not. .....


Note: The following verses concerning my "Two Witnesses" are out of the time sequence, and are a continuation of Revelation 7:1-8



3 I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred sixty days (prophetic days or 1,260 years), clothed in sackcloth (not regally, but humbled before mankind).

4 These (Two Witnesses) are the two "Olive Trees" and the two "Lampstands", standing before the Lord of the earth.


Note:
These witnesses are the two Spiritual Assemblies of Smyrna and Philadelphia who are ready to give their testimonies against those who oppressed them during their collective lifetimes. The Two Witnesses are those who kept the "Word of YHVH" during their lifetime.


Note:
This should be interpreted as a period of time prior to receiving their white robes (the resurrection) , and a time of great humility (sackcloth) with Spiritual Authority, but not a time of regal splendor with worldly authority like Satan's Roman universal or catholic church. So let's take a realistic look at verses 3 and 4 above. First of all in order to be a martyr and a witness against oppressors, one must have suffered and witnessed oppression. The word used in the book of Revelation for witness has consistently been "Martus" (Strong's #3144 - A Martyr or one who bears record). In other words, those who were murdered for their testimony concerning Messiah Y'Shua. Additionally, all of the martyrs could not have lived at the exact same time, and this is probably why the length of their collective oppression lasted a prophetic one thousand two hundred sixty prophetic days (1,260 years), and as we shall see, these oppressed witnesses were 7th Day Sabbath Keepers, also known as, Arians, Burgundians, Vandals, Goths, Jews and some others.


Revelation 12:6

6 The woman
(Spiritual Israel or The Seed of Abraham or the Two Witnesses) fled into the wilderness (a place of hardship), where she has a place prepared by G-d, that there they may nourish her one thousand two hundred sixty days (1,260 years).




The Two Witnesses

(In Greater Detail)



Traditional christianity has falsely taught that the two witnesses are real prophets, perhaps Moses and Elijah or even Enoch. When you understand that the time period does not represent 1,260 literal days, but rather 1,260 years
(one day is as a thousand years to YHVH), it is easy to see that the Two Witnesses cannot simply be two people, but assemblies or multitudes of individual believers. One clue in Revelation 11:4 (above) is when the Two Witnesses are referred to as "Olive Trees." This is a direct link to Zechariah 4:2-6 .


Zechariah 4:1-14

The Aggelos who talked with me came again, and wakened me, as a man who is wakened out of his sleep.
2. He said to me, "What do you see?" I said, "I have seen, and, behold, a lampstand all of gold, with its bowl on the top of it, and its seven lamps thereon; there are seven pipes to each of the lamps, which are on the top of it;
3.
and
two olive trees by it, one on the right side of the bowl, and the other on the left side of it."
4. I answered and spoke to the Aggelos who talked with me, saying, "What are these, my lord (my superior)?"
5. Then the Aggelos who talked with me answered me, "Don't you know what these are?" I said, "No, my lord" (my superior).


6. Then he answered and spoke to me, saying, "This is the word of YHVH to Zerubbabel, saying, 'Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit,' says YHVH of Hosts.
7. Who are you, great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you are a plain; and he will bring out the capstone with shouts of 'Grace, grace, to it!'"
8. Moreover the word of YHVH came to me, saying,
9.
"The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house. His hands shall also finish it; and you will know that YHVH of Hosts has sent me to you.
10.
Indeed, who despises the day of small things? For these seven shall rejoice, and shall see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel. These are the eyes of YHVH, which run back and forth through the whole earth."


11. Then I asked him,
"What are these two olive trees on the right side of the lampstand and on the left side of it?" (No answer)


12. I asked him the second time,
"What are these two olive-branches, which are beside the two golden spouts, that pour the golden oil out of themselves?"
13. He answered me,
"Don't you know what these are?" I said, "No, my lord" (my superior).
14. Then he said,
"These are the two anointed ones who stand by the Lord of the whole earth."


Note: The Two Witnesses must be both the Two Lampstands (candlesticks) and the Two Olive Trees. As the Two Lampstands they are a light unto the world, and as the Two Olive Trees they are the Word of YHVH (to Zerubbabel)! So the language used in Revelation 11:4 is prophetic and symbolic, the Two Witnesses are actually those True Believers who were, and will be persecuted for their obedience and steadfastness in the Word of YHVH. Some religious sects think that the Two Witnesses are the Old and New Testament, but actually only the Tanakh (Older Testament) is considered Scripture, and the New Testament did not exist , except as letters (epistles), until they were (in some cases altered and) canonized by the universal (catholic) church of Satan; and we know we cannot trust the Great Whore or her harlot daughters (christian churches) to "Keep the Word of YHVH," as they were too busy persecuting those that did.

Additional Note: It is interesting to see a distinction made between the Two Olive Trees and the two olive-branches. However, it appears that from among the two assemblies of True Believers two branches will appear (one tree containing Jewish branches and the other tree containing branches of Ephraim and Gentiles).


5 If anyone desires to harm them, (unquenchable) fire proceeds out of their mouth and devours their enemies. If anyone desires to harm them, he must be killed (experience the second death) in this way.

Note: Verse five above is probably not literal but figurative. The following interpretation is only a possible solution for the verse, and should not necessarily be construed as truth. However, . . . . . . .

5) If anyone intends to harm (or has harmed in the past) any of My Witnesses, the unquenchable fire of Gehenna Hell will be their judgement based on the testimony that comes from the mouth of My Witnesses; and those evil men will be destroyed by the fire of Gehenna Hell. The fire of Gehenna is the only possible sentence for the guilty.


6 These have the power to shut up the sky, that it may not rain during the
days of their prophecy (YHVH's prophecy concerning them). They have power over the waters, to turn them into blood, and to strike the earth with every plague, as often as they desire.


Note: Verses 7-13 below are currently "In Progress," and will be revealed as time, history, and the "Plan of Salvation" continue to unfold.



7 When they
(the two olive-branches or Two Witnesses) have finished their testimony, the beast (Reborn unHoly Roman Empire) that comes up out of the abyss (Out of the Earth - See Revelation 13:11) will make war with them, and overcome them, and kill them (obviously The Two Witnesses are human beings and also, True Worshippers).

8 Their dead bodies will be in the street of the great city
(3 1/2 days or years as explained above), which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where, also, their Lord (Y'Shua) was crucified.

9 From among the peoples, tribes, languages, and nations will people look at their dead bodies for three and a half
days (3 1/2 days or years), and will not allow their dead bodies to be laid in a tomb.

10 Those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, and make merry. They will send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.

11 After the three and a half
(3 1/2 years) days, the breath of life from G-d entered into them, and they stood on their feet. Great fear fell on those who saw them (Corruption puts on incorruption - See 1 Corinthians 15:41-54 ).



The Resurrection Occurs

Purification will soon come upon the inhabitants of the Earth



12 I heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up here!" They went up into
(the first) heaven in the cloud, and their enemies saw them (with Messiah in the clouds).

13
(A Future Event) In that hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the rest were terrified, and gave glory to the G-d of heaven.



14 The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe comes quickly.



15 The seventh Aggelos sounded,
(The Last Trumpet) and there followed great voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of YHVH, and of His Anointed Son. He will reign forever and ever!"


16 The twenty-four elders, who sit before G-d on their thrones, fell on their faces and worshiped G-d,
17 saying: "We give you thanks, Lord G-d, the Almighty, the one who is and who was; because you have taken your great power, and reigned.


Note: The Third Woe is a Premillennial Purification when YHVH Stamps Out the Vintage of the Grapes of Wrath, and removes those that will not repent of their sinful nature from The Earth.


18 The nations were angry, and your wrath came, as did
(after The Millennium) the time for the dead to be judged, and to give your servants, the prophets, their reward, as well as the saints, and those who fear your name, the small and the great; and to destroy those who destroy the earth."

19 G-d's temple that is in heaven was opened, and the
Ark of the Lord's Covenant was seen in His temple (His dwelling place or the 'Tent of the Temple'). There followed lightnings, sounds, thunders, an earthquake, and great hail (This is the "Seven Last Plagues". See Revelation 15 and 16).
