Jesus, the Lamb of God opened the seven seals to those who have the Holy Spirit by
explaining their meaning in Matthew 24.

And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside,
sealed with seven seals.
And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose
the seals thereof?
And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to
look thereon.
And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look
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.
And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders,
stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits
of God sent forth into all the earth.
And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the
Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of
saints. And they sung a new song, saying,
Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals
thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and
tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign
on the earth.
Revelation 5.1-10

The Four Horsemen

These are the signs of the end of the age (Matthew 24.3):

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.
 Revelation 6.1

1st Seal -

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.
  Revelation 6.2

And Jesus said:

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
Matthew 24.4-5

[The first seal is the spiritual confusion and deception that is every where you look – a counterfeit
gospel masquerading as the truth, there are many preachers who say that Jesus is the Christ and
deceive the people into paganism (Sunday, Xmas, Easter) and a long list of false teachings.]

2nd Seal –

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

And Jesus said:

And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must
come to pass, but the end is not yet.

3rd Seal -

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.
Rev. 6.5-6

And Jesus said -

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and
pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
All these are the beginning of sorrows.
  Matthew 24.7-8

4th Seal -

And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
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.
Rev. 6.7-8

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and
pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
All these are the beginning of sorrows.   Matthew 24.7-8

These plagues have been going since the founding of the Church and are escalating. They are
"The beginning of sorrows".

We are on the brink of the 5th Seal now.

5th Seal -

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:
And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and
avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest
yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that
should be killed as
they were,
should be fulfilled.  
Rev. 6.9-11

And Jesus said -

Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations
for my name's sake.
And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and
then shall the end come.
 Matthew 24.9-14

[this is the "tribulation" or "the time of Jacob's Trouble" (Jeremiah 30) when the LORD allows the
Beast (guided by the Harlot) to destroy the Lost Tribes of Israel and the gentiles who have been
grafted in
(whoever they may be? *see below ).

The “Tribulation” is Satan’s wrath against the Lost Tribes of Israel (Genesis 48.16) and the few people
who he has been unable to deceive into believing
“the lie” (2 Thessalonians 2.7-11), [that is those
who have held fast to God’s Commandments.
Revelation 14.12; 12.17]

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the
whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of
our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused
them before our God day and night.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved
not their lives unto the death.
Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them.
Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of
the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath
but a short time.
And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought
forth the man child.
And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into
her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be
carried away of the flood.
And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which
the dragon cast out of his mouth.
And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the
remnant of her seed,
which keep the commandments of God, and have the
testimony of Jesus Christ.   
      Revelation 12.9-17

6th seal -

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 6:12-17

And Jesus said:

Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall
not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be
 Matthew 24.29

[This is the start of the last 3 1/2 years - The Day of the LORD - when the punishment comes on to the
gentiles and the Beast betrays the "The State of Israel" – Judah, and sets up the abomination of
desolation (Daniel 9.25-27) and starts with the trumpet plagues and ends with the bowl judgments are
poured out upon the Earth in Rev. 16.]

Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the
Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt:
And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman
that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.
Behold, the
day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land
desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.
For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be
darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the
arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
 Isaiah 13.6-11

The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of
the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.
That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of
darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,
A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.
And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned
against the Lord: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.

Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired;
Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the Lord
come upon you, before the
day of the Lord's anger come upon you.
Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness,
seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord's anger.
 Zephaniah 2.1-3

The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying,
Son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord God; Howl ye, Woe worth the day!
For the day is near, even the
day of the Lord is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the
 Ezekiel 30.1-3

Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.
For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses
rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the
people shall not be cut off from the city.
Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
Zechariah 14.1-3

But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
For yourselves know perfectly that the
day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail
upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
  1 Thessalonians

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass
away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works
that are therein shall be burned up.
Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all
holy conversation and godliness,
Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the
day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall
be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
  2 Peter 3.10-12

The Seventh Seal -

When the 7th seal is opened there is a brief interlude when the 144,000 of all the Tribes of Israel
(except Dan) are sealed.

And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four
winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
Revelation 7.1

The “winds” are restrained from blowing the “The Trumpet Plagues”.

And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an
And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.

Revelation 8.1+2

The 144,000 who are sealed are of all the Tribes of Israel (except Dan, Joseph receives a double
portion since he received the birthright blessings in Genesis 48.17-20) – they are the same 144,000
written about in Revelation 14.1-5. They are called virgins because they have not had any dealings
with the Harlot and her daughters. They never participated in the pagan holy days (Sunday, Xmas,
Easter, ect.) - thereby receiving the mark of the Beast and they refused to accept it's number (the
veri chips). They never believed or practiced the lies of the Harlot (Revelation 14.5).

They are protected from the trumpet plagues by the LORD.

Then the “Trumpet Plagues” begin:

The First Trumpet plague is:

The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon
the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
 Revelation 8.7

The Second Trumpet is:

And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the
sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the
ships were destroyed.
  Revelation 8.8+9

The Third Trumpet is:

And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it
fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood;
and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
 Revelation 8.10+11

The Fourth Trumpet is:

And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the
moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone
not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe,
woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three
angels, which are yet to sound!
Revelation 8.12+13

The last three trumpets are the “Woes”.

The Fifth Trumpet is the first “Woe”:

1.  And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given
the key of the bottomless pit.
2.  And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great
furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
3.  And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the
scorpions of the earth have power.
4.  And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green
thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
5.  And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five
months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
6.  And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death
shall flee from them.
7.  And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads
were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.
8.  And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
9.  And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the
sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.
10.  And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to
hurt men five months.
11.  And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the
Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
12.  One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
Revelation 9.1-12

The Sixth Trumpet is the Second “Woe”:

And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is
before God,
Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great
river Euphrates.
And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a
year, for to slay the third part of men.
And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the
number of them.
And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of
jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their
mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.
By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone,
which issued out of their mouths.
For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had
heads, and with them they do hurt.
And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their
hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of
wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their
  Revelation 9.13-21

The death and resurrection of the two witnesses (Revelation 11.11-14) is the end of the “second
woe” and brings on the “third woe”.

The Last (seventh) Trumpet is the Third “Woe”

The third “woe” is the bowl judgments (Revelation 16) which are plagues on the people who have
accepted the Mark of the Beast and worshipped it’s image. These plagues are straight from the LORD
and are the culmination of His wrath (Rev. 16.1; 16.9).

Bowl #1

Painful sores on on those who have the mark of the beast and have worshiped it’s image. Rev. 16.2

Bowl #2

The sea turns to blood and all sea life dies. Rev. 16.3

Bowl #3

The fresh waters turn to blood.  Rev.16.4-7

Bowl #4

People are scorched by the Sun.  Rev. 16.8+9

Bowl #5

Darkness on the Earth.  Rev. 16.10+11

Bowl #6

The Euphrates River is dried up clearing a way for the armies of the King of the East to march to the
west. And the three “frogs” go out from Satan, the Beast, and the False Prophet to gather all the
armies to Armageddon.
Rev. 16.12-16

Bowl #7

IT IS DONE!  Rev. 16.17-21

The seventh bowl is the utter destruction of the armies of the King of the North, the King of the
South, and the King of the East. It is the end of the plagues, the return of Jesus, and is accompanied
by a great earthquake and huge hail stones:

And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the
temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was
not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon
came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his
wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men
blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
Revelation 16.17-21

Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east,
and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and
there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of
it toward the south.
Zechariah 14.3+4

And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying,
The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his
Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
 Revelation 11.15

And Jesus said:

And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the
tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds
of heaven with power and great glory.
And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall
gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the
 Matt 24.30-31

This is when first resurrection takes place (Revelation 20.4-6) - this is when the catching up occurs (1
Corinthians 15.52; 1 Thessalonians 4.16) - this is when the LORD takes over the Throne of Israel and
goes to Jerusalem. And the Satan, the Beast, and the False Prophet are apprehended (Rev. 19.20;
