Revelations,A Study.Section 5. Chapter 7:2 thru 7:8 The sealing ofrepparttar hundred and forty and four thousand of allrepparttar 144272 tribes ofrepparttar 144273 children of Israel. The first question we will look at isrepparttar 144274 word seal. Why and what isrepparttar 144275 meaning? Seal; Sphragis Sfrag-ece' Probably strengthened from G5420; A signet (as fencing in or protecting from misappropriation); by implicationrepparttar 144276 stamp impressed (as a mark of privacy, or genuineness), literally or figuratively. The Sealing ofrepparttar 144277 144,000 is representative or should we say paralell torepparttar 144278 mark ofrepparttar 144279 beast, only by God on His chosen. There are many simularieties between Satans Kingdom andrepparttar 144280 Kingdom of God. If you look close you will see The Trinity ofrepparttar 144281 Father, Son and Holy Ghost and in paraell you will see Satan, The Beast andrepparttar 144282 False prophet. You will also see when God seals His chosen from each tribe of Israel you will also see Satan marking His members. You may ask,”Does Satan really have a Kingdom?” The answer is yes, its scriptual. Do I also have proof of these things, yes, we will look at each as we progress into our study. The 144,000 are sealed Jews that will preachrepparttar 144283 Gospel to each tribe of Israel. [ref; Eze_47:13, Eze_48:19, Eze_48:31; Zec_9:1] Verse 7:1 is speaking of a plague about to be poured uponrepparttar 144284 earth. Each plague is real, there is no symbolism here. Rev 7:1 And after these things I saw four angels standing onrepparttar 144285 four corners ofrepparttar 144286 earth,[North,South,East and West.] holdingrepparttar 144287 four winds ofrepparttar 144288 earth, thatrepparttar 144289 wind should not blow onrepparttar 144290 earth, nor onrepparttar 144291 sea, nor on any tree. The wind is an extremely important factor in our ability to breath and controllsrepparttar 144292 rains. Rev 7:2 And I saw another angel ascending[comming up from] fromrepparttar 144293 east, havingrepparttar 144294 seal ofrepparttar 144295 living God:... [The mark ofrepparttar 144296 Most High, as per a king and his mark on official documents] ...and he cried with a loud voice torepparttar 144297 four angels, to whom it was given to hurtrepparttar 144298 earth andrepparttar 144299 sea, Now If you have noticed each angel that is mentioned has a specific position to fulfill and maintain. This isrepparttar 144300 pattern that Jesus has set down for His Church. [Ref; 1Co 12:5 And there are differences of administrations, butrepparttar 144301 same Lord.

Revelations a Study. section 4.

Written by Rev.Anthony Smith

Revelations a Study. section 4. In section 4, we will see a lot of symbolism. Section 4. Chapters 6:1 thru 7:1. The Lamb {Jesusrepparttar Christ} openingrepparttar 144271 seals, only 6 seals are opened in this section. The first seal. The White Horse. Rev 6:2 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.Rev. 6:2 is not speaking of Jesus but ofrepparttar 144272 antichristian elements. This isrepparttar 144273 same asrepparttar 144274 other three horsemen. If you noticed in Rev.6:2 we see a rider with a BOW. In scripture Jesus is never described as haveing a bow but only a sword. The second thing we see here is ”a crown was given unto him” this designates thatrepparttar 144275 rider before was never in power untill it was granted him. The second Seal. The Red Horse. Rev 6:4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace fromrepparttar 144276 earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. This verse again does not speek of Jesus. This line speakes for itself as not being Jesus.“power was given to him“ Jesus is power and has no need to be given it. This next verse shows, war and hatred amoung mankind,repparttar 144277 word sword designates war. The ability to make war was given unto him.“to take peace fromrepparttar 144278 earth, that they should kill one another, was given unto him a great sword.” The third Seal.The Black Horse. Rev 6:5 And when he had openedrepparttar 144279 third seal, I heardrepparttar 144280 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. [A measure: “The word choenix signifieth a measure containing one wine-quart andrepparttar 144281 twelfth part of a quart.”] The Black Horseman is a prelude torepparttar 144282 pale horse. In verse 6:6 we seerepparttar 144283 phrase,”hurt notrepparttar 144284 oil andrepparttar 144285 wine.” This isrepparttar 144286 main stapel of Israel. “A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny” Food at this time will cost a days wages. The word Penny, designates wages. “wheat & barley” designates materials that are used in makeing bread but here they also designate food. The fourth Seal. The Pale Horse. The word “pale” signifies death. Rev 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 overrepparttar 144287 fourth part ofrepparttar 144288 earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and withrepparttar 144289 beasts ofrepparttar 144290 earth. Hab 2:5 Yea also, because he transgresseth by wine, he is a proud man, neither keepeth at home, who enlargeth his desire as hell, and is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathereth unto him all nations, and heapeth unto him all people:. Reference.Eze_5:15-17, Eze_14:13-21. In this phrase we see 2 spiritual beings. ”power was given unto them”
