The 6th Seal is used in this post to connect the dots

Acts 2:13-20
13 Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.

14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:

15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.

16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;

17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:


I need everyone’s attention that Peter just mentioned the 6th Seal here, as mentioned in the last part of Revelation Chapter 6, IN CONJUNCTION WITH the 144000 Jews being SEALED with the Holy Spirit in the beginning part of Revelation chapter 7.

That is very important to note, and why? Because Jesus mentions the 6th Seal, as mentioned in the last part of Revelation 6 as well. He did not mention the 144000, as Peter did, but he did mention the LATTER PART of Revelation 7, whereas Peter just mentions the first part of Revelation 7. To wit:

Matthew 24:29
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 shaken:

Mark 13:24
But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,

Luke 21:25
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

And here is Revelation 6:

Revelation 6:12
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;

And here is Peter’s references to Joel:

Joel 2:10
The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:

Joel 2:31
The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.

Joel 3:15
The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.

WHY do I concentrate so much on the 6th Seal? Because that is where Jesus STOPS in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21. There is absolutely NO MENTION of the 7th Seal of Revelation chapter 8-16. HOWEVER, Jesus does mention the LATTER PART of Revelation 7 right after the 6th Seal.

And why is my mention of that so important?

Because Jesus never mentions the 7th Seal of Revelation, which begins in Revelation chapter 8, AT ALL. There is no discussion of it whatsoever. Therefore, 70 AD cannot be the eschatology that preterists claim, because, according to Jesus, believers are RAPTURED out before the opening of the 7th Seal.

NOTE:
Many think that we are in the last days NOW. One such person that I saw on Twitter is a Gentile woman, who is a “Law of Moses” abiding Christian, and she claims to have had DREAMS AND VISIONS.

I don’t take her serious. She claims that we are in the 3rd Seal now, and that she had the dreams and visions about those seals being opened. She is using Acts 2 as her means as proof, that in the last days there will be dreams and visions.

My major problem with that, it was based on JEWS being given the Holy Spirit, and there were no Gentiles that got the Holy Spirit on Pentecost.

Acts 2:17
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

Note the word, “your”. That would be Jewish heretage, not Gentile. Hopefully later on, you will understand. John is the Apostle to the Jews. So is Peter.

RAPTURE #1 (FOR THE CHURCH)

Yes, there is MORE THAN ONE Rapture. One for the Church, and one for the…Well, you will see in a bit. From the Gospels, I am going to first pinpoint a verse in each end time gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke) with the sixth seal reference and then I am going to quote the RAPTURE right after that.

Matthew 24

Sixth Seal:
Matthew 24:29

Rapture:
Matthew 24:30-31

30 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.

31 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 other.

NOTE:
I’m going to go out on a limb here, and where the words “tribes of the earth” is mentioned, I’m going to conclude that what Jesus is discussing here is the 12 Tribes of Israel (JEWS ONLY). There are several reasons, one of which is that Israel (JEWS ONLY), whether saved, or unsaved, are the elect. Gentiles are NOT the elect. That is a Christendom fallacy to think that the saved Gentiles, or THE CHURCH is the elect. Saved Jews are known as the REMNANT. Remember, Jesus is talking to JEWS ONLY here. And John, the Apostle to the Jews, is talking to JEWS ONLY in the book of Revelation.

Now, I’m not saying that saved Gentiles are different here, but then again, yes, I am saying that Gentiles are different here. Why? Because the Jews don’t know Jesus on purpose. It’s not their fault that they don’t know Jesus. Deu 29:4/Romans 11:8 spells it out. And John 9:39-41 shows that Jesus unblinds A FEW at time so that they can SEE and UNDERSTAND, therefore, those who do see, are the remnant. Those who can’t, remain in a slumber. Feast your understanding on Joseph and his brothers, when Joseph FINALLY revealed himself to his brothers, and he forgave them, and then read the rest of Romans 11 regarding the MERCY on the Jews that Jesus will have on his BRETHREN (the Jews). Joseph kept his identity SECRET from his brothers, and he toyed with them for a while before finally revealing himself.

Moving on.

Mark 13

Sixth Seal:
Mark 13:24-25

Rapture:
Mark 13:26-27

26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.

27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

NOTE:
Notice, if you will, that so far we have 2 events SIDE BY SIDE. The 6th Seal, and then the RAPTURE.

Luke 21

Sixth Seal:
Luke 21:25-26

Rapture:
Luke 21:27

27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

Now, that’s the END of the story in all of the end times chapters of the gospel. And Jesus did not mention one word about the 7th Seal. I challenge anyone to prove me wrong.

So now, seeing the connect the dots of the 6th Seal, and the side by side events of the 6th seal with the RAPTURE, let’s look at Revalation chapters 6-7.

Sixth Seal:
Revelation 6:12-17

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?

Revelation Chapter 7

I’m not going to quote all of Revelation 7, except a small portion. But I want to make note first about Peter. In Acts Chapter 2, the Holy Spirit came down onto JEWISH believers, and the JEWISH unbelievers thought it very strange and funny that they were speaking in tongues. So, Peter explains the LAST DAYS to them, putting a timeline together by mentioning that 6th Seal. Why is that important? Note the word, “SEALED” in the following.

Ephesians 1:13
In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

Peter is discussing the following:

Revelation 7:4
And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

144,000 previously blind Jews now get their site, healed of their blindness, and BOOM, all of a sudden become believers. THEY are the ones Peter was discussing in Acts 2 regarding Last Days SPEAKING IN TONGUES, DREAMS AND VISIONS. Unfortunately, for today, we have some real nut jobs telling us that they have dreams and visions, telling us that WE, our own generation is the last days generation, and they are even bold enough to tell us that seals 1-3 have already been opened. That’s another topic altogether, but as far as I’m concerned, until there is a Temple in Jerusalen for the Anti-Christ to walk into, we are NO WHERE NEAR the LAST DAYS.

Those 144,000 PREACH the gospel to UNBELIEVING Jews after the Rapture of the rest of the CHURCH. In other words, the 144,000 are “LEFT BEHIND”, along with the rest of the blind Jews.

Revelation 7 Rapture

Revelation 7:9
After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;

Where is the location of these people? THE THRONE OF GOD.

And that is the end of it for believers. And now that you know that, you need now to RELOCATE your previously understood TRUMPS, i.e., the LAST TRUMP, because it ain’t what you were previously taught, I can guarentee that.

Revelation chapters 8-16 is the 7th Seal.

RAPTURE #2 (FOR THE JEWS + NEW CONVERTS)

Now, in the midst of the 7th Seal, in chapter 14, is ANOTHER RAPTURE of the 144,000 Jews, plus new converts. This one is important because it is BEFORE Armegeddon.

I’m not even gonna quote Revelation 14. You can read it yourself, but please note the LOCATION of these people is at the THRONE OF GOD, just like it was in chapter 7 for the first rapture of the Church.

All of these references of Matthew, Mark, Luke, Acts 2, and Revelation 6-7 are BACK TO BACK events, and all you gotta do is connect the dots, and you will be convinced that there is indeed a rapture, and the rapture is NOT FALSE DOCTRINE created by some woman in the Pentacostal movement, or Darby.

So yes, we actually do “FLY AWAY” in a “SECRET RAPTURE”.

But again, not one word about the 7th Seal did Jesus mention at all in his end times discussion with his disciples/apostles.

NOT A PEEP. Why? Because his believers WON’T BE HERE FOR IT. And we certainly won’t be here for the infamous “Mark of the Beast”.

I challenge anyone to find anything that Jesus said that references any event in the 7th Seal. This concludes the blog post, however, below are some noteworthy side notes.

SIDE NOTES:

Now, many of whom I debate with, seems to ignore something that Jesus said, regarding the Abomination of Desolation standing in the HOLY PLACE (KJV). Doing a bit of research, the Temple is known as the HOLY PLACE. And many say that there is no temple, therefore, they must be discussing 70 AD. Well, that is NOT POSSIBLE, because of THIS:

Jesus asks the Pharisees:

Matthew 22:42
Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David.

Were they correct? Yes.

Matthew 1:1
The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

This is HUGE, because the Anti-Christ MUST BE a Jew. And this will negate out all the conspiracy theories about a Pope in Rome. We are discussing a Jewish man, in Jerusalem at a Temple, walking in the Temple and proclaiming to be God. This has nothing to do with a Pope. First, Catholic dogman, such as the one that Mel Gibson subscribes to, hates Jews, and why? Because Jews killed Jesus. That’s why. There will never be a Jewish Pope, but then again, the context is a temple in Jerusalem, not the Vatican in Rome, not the UN in New York, not a President of the USA, etc.

The destruciton of the temple in 70 AD is NOT, I repeat, NOT in relation to the end times prophesy. THAT generation did NOT SEE the rest of the things that Jesus indicated, regardless of the claims of those who think that they did.

 
A JEW must walk into that Temple proclaiming to be God, not a Gentile. That negates out ROME, or the European Union. It also negates out the 70 AD destruction of the Temple.

Therefore, the generation that sees the destruction of the 3rd Temple and sees the REST of what Jesus discusses is THAT generation. And no one has convinced me that the 6th seal has already taken place in 70 AD.

Let’s keep in mind, the Jews are looking for a Christ. All of Christendom already acknowledges that Jesus is the Christ, even the cults. Other “religions” has their beliefs in whatever, and they are not looking for a Christ, either. Just the Jews. There HAS TO BE a 3rd Temple built in Jerusalem for this JEWISH Anti-Christ to walk into, and let’s not forget, he must perform miracles. The Jews need to be convinced that this is the guy they’ve waited so long for. This is where God sends them strong delusion to believe the lie. Yes, Thessalonians 1 and 2 was Paul’s letters to the Jewish believers. This is why Paul never mentions any of this stuff to GENTILES letters. It’s for the Jews. Hence, when Jesus mentions “all the tribes”. HE was speaking to Jews, not Gentiles. Yes, the word ALL has a context.

Final note, If Acts 1 states that Jesus will come back in the same manner as he left, that tells me that the 1st and 2nd rapture, no rapture at all, is the 2nd coming.

Zecharia 14:1-5

 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.

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.

And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

Looks to me that WE COME BACK WITH HIM, and that, is his 2nd coming, just like Acts 1 states. Until then, I do not consider “in the clouds” as a 2nd coming.

How about you?
