2019 WARNING: We Are Living in the 6th Seal of Revelation
We are living in the sixth seal of revelation soon the final events of Bible prophecy will be rapidly fulfilled and Jesus will return that’s what I’m going to be talking about in this video but before I do that I want to thank amazing facts Christian ministry for sponsoring this video amazing facts is one of my favorite Christian ministries and they have a great app which you can download for free

Android now before getting into the sixth seal there are actually seven seals mentioned in the book of Revelation and they give an outline of the history of the church from the opening of the Christian era to the second coming of Jesus Christ the first four seals correspond to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and the fifth seal represents persecuted Saints who lived during the dark ages I actually have some videos about the four horsemen and the fifth seal on my channel and I’ll leave a card to them in the upper right hand corner of the screen which you can click on to watch the seventh seal represents the second coming of Jesus Christ it’s only one verse long in Revelation chapter 8 verse 1 and it says and when he had opened the Seventh Seal There was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour why do you think there will be silence in heaven upon the return of Jesus Christ let me know in the comments section and stay tuned because I’m gonna answer that question later on now if the seventh seal represents the second coming of Jesus and the fifth seal takes place during the dark ages that means that the sixth seal takes place between the dark ages and the second coming of Jesus that is the period of history we live in the sixth seal is described in Revelation chapter 6 verses 12 through 17 verses 12 through 13 say 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 several signs are mentioned here affecting the Sun Moon and stars these are the same signs mentioned in the Gospels when Jesus spoke about the end of the world for example in Matthew chapter 24 verse 29 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 shaken the tribulation that Jesus was talking about here was the tribulation that bible-believing Christians endured at the hands of the Roman Catholic Church during the Dark Ages the Roman Catholic Church had supreme religious authority in Europe for over 1,000 years and mercilessly persecuted anyone who opposed its Authority including professors Bible believing Christians like the Waldensian Hussites Lollards and Protestants however in 1798 the Catholic Church lost its power when Pope Pius the 6th was captured by the French General Berthier and then died in captivity a year later but even before that the Roman Catholic Church was being weakened as a result of the influence of the Protestant Reformation many countries became Protestant like Sweden Denmark Norway Finland England and even parts of Germany in addition Christians were fleeing from Europe too America to escape persecution as well the Mayflower came to America in 1620 which led to the Declaration of Independence in 1776 this all contributed to the end of the persecutions of the Dark Ages and when this period of persecution came to an end is when the first signs of the sixth seal began to appear starting with a great earthquake mentioned in Revelation chapter 6 verse 12 this was the Lisbon earthquake of November the 1st 1755 this was the most terrible earthquake that had ever been recorded it affected nearly 4 million square miles with aftershocks being felt in Africa and Europe it struck off the coast of Lisbon Portugal and had a magnitude of to the quake itself lasted for around 6 minutes and it caused cracks 16 feet wide to open in the city center 40 minutes after the quake a tsunami followed which was reported to be 50 feet high along with two more waves and then the city began to burn drastically for hours fires broke out everywhere because it was All Saints Day and candles were lit in churches and houses which were knocked over by all the commotion the death toll in Lisbon alone was estimated to be between 10,000 to 100,000 people making this one of the deadliest earthquakes in history Revelation chapter 6 verse 12 says that after the earthquake the Sun would become black as sackcloth of hair and the moon had become as blood this was fulfilled on May 1917 8025 years after the Lisbon earthquake on that fateful day in New England in the United States at about 8 o’clock in the morning a smokey hue started rolling in and getting darker and darker until the Sun was completely blacked out by new one quote from the Connecticut historical collections reads candles were lighted in many houses the birds were silent and disappeared and the fowls retired to roost a very general opinion prevailed that the day of judgment was at hand not only that after midnight the darkness disappeared and the moon when it first became visible had the appearance of blood some might ask why was New England singled out as the place where these signs occurred according to a BBC news article entitled what caused the mystery of the dark day historian Mike – says the northeast corner of the US was a deeply Protestant society with a profound interest in guilt sin and redemption in other words this was a region of the United States with devout Christians which would have been able to recognize this as a sign of the end times the next endtime sign which would follow the Sun becoming black and the moon becoming as blood was the Stars falling from heaven according to Revelation chapter 6 verse 13 this was fulfilled on November the 13th 1833 on that night the greatest meteor shower of history took place the whole sky over North America was lit up for four hours with thousands upon thousands of meteors blazing across the atmosphere in every direction one estimate I read stated that there were 72 thousand or more per hour it literally rained meteors and it was so bright that a newspaper could be read on the street and so you see that the signs of the sixth seal including the earthquake the Sun becoming black the moon becoming as blood and the stars falling from heaven have already been fulfilled this means that we are living in the sixth seal of Revelation and these signs will be repeated in quick succession once again right before the return of the Lord because in Matthew chapter 24 verse 29 when mentioning these signs it says that they will appear after the tribulation of the Dark Ages but here in Revelation they are in the context of the second coming of Jesus Christ so that means that they will happen again right before Jesus has returned to be specific they’re going to be repeated at the end of the seven last plagues that’s because when you continue reading about the signs in Revelation chapter 6 verse 14 it says and every mountain and Island were moved out of their places this is the same event that you read about in Revelation chapter 16 and verse 20 which is in the context of the seven last plague it states and every island fled away and the mountains were not found so that gives us a reference point in time to show us when these signs will be repeated now I’m going to discuss Revelation chapter 6 verses 14 through 17 in the sixth seal because what’s written there hasn’t been fulfilled yet verse 14 says and the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together and every mountain and Island were moved out of their places in ancient cosmology the sky was considered to be a solid vault above the earth the Prophet now sees the scroll rolled back that the earth may stand unshielded before God the mountains and islands being moved out of their places are convulsions that will take place on earth right before the Lord’s return not only will the earth be shaken at that time but the heavens will be shaken as well Revelation chapter 6 verse 14 which says that the islands and mountains were moved out of their place is a direct quote from Isaiah chapter thirteen verse thirteen which says the heavens will be shaken at that time two stating therefore I will shake the heavens and the earth shall remove out of her place in the wrath of the Lord of Hosts and in the day of his fierce anger and what is it that causes the heavens and the earth to shake it is the voice of God Joh chapter 3 verse 16 says the Lord also shall roar out of Zion and utter his voice from Jerusalem and the heavens and the earth shall shake but the Lord will be the hope of his people and the strength of the children of Israel at that time God will pronounce the words written in Revelation chapters 16 verse 17 which reads 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 back to the sixth seal Revelation chapter 6 verses 15 through 17 says 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 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 for the great day of his wrath is come and who shall be able to stand here we have a picture of every class of people who are lost from the most prominent members of society to the most humble from rulers to freemen and slaves and one thing that this goes to show us is your social status cannot save you because Romans chapter 3 verse 23 tells us for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God we are all guilty of sin and Romans chapter 6 verse 23 tells us for the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord Jesus is our only hope of salvation he died on the cross for our sins and if we accept them as our Lord and Savior he will deliver us from the penalty and power of sin to learn more about that click on the upper right hand corner of the screen and watch my video in titled five steps to salvation now we jump ahead to the Seventh Seal which depicts the second coming of Jesus Christ it says and when he had opened the Seventh Seal There was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour at the beginning of this video I asked why you think it says there will be silence in heaven when Jesus returns the reason there will be silence in heaven is because Jesus and his angels will come to earth that Jesus a second coming to gather his Saints speaking of the second coming Matthew chapter 24 verses 30 through 31 says 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 other so since Jesus and His angels vacate heaven to come to earth heaven becomes silent we are living in the sixth seal of revelation the earthquake and cosmic signs in the Sun Moon and stars which the sixth seal describes have already happened and will be repeated in quick succession at the end of the seven last plagues right before the return of Jesus Christ therefore prepare to meet your God because Jesus is coming soon click on
