'Understand Endtime Scriptures'
Before we go to the 7th Seal, let's have a better understanding of Rapture and 6th Seal.
1. Peace and Safety on Earth
- Just before Rapture everyone will be doing their normal work (unfortunately many have taken the mark of the beast or '666').
Luke 17:27 "They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all." (Please read Luke 17:26-30, 1Thess 5;2-3)
2. Great Heavenly Blackout
- the whole heaven will be darkened so that our Lord Jesus coming with His angelic hosts will be seen as stars dropping from the sky. (More in U03)
3. Jesus coming for His elect
Mark 13:27 "And then He will send His angels, and gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest part of earth to the farthest part of heaven." (U03)
4. Elect in Heaven
Rev 7:9, 14 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands,.. And I said to him, "Sir, you know." So he said to me, "These are *the ones who come out of the great tribulation*, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
These elect taken back to heaven (6th Seal) have overcome the Great Tribulation (5th Seal).
5. Antichrist Killed at Rapture
2Thess 2.8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.
6. Those left Behind
- As the elect are taken back at Rapture, all those left behind will be affected by the gigantic earthquakes.
Rev 6:12a,14 I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake;.. Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place.
The earthquakes are so powerful (scale 10 or more) that the mountains and islands move out of positions, and causing gigantic tsunamis.
Luke 21:25 "And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring;"
Half of Mankind Killed
Mat 24:41-42 "Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming."
These powerful earthquakes with gigantic tsunamis will kill half of all mankind, whose carcasses will feed the vultures.
Luke 17:37 And they answered and said to Him, "Where, Lord?" So He said to them, "Wherever the body (carcass) is, there the eagles (vultures) will be gathered together."
144,000 Israelites Saved
Rev 7:3-4 saying, "Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads." And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed:
At Rapture, these Israelites (true descendants of Jacob or Israel), will see our Lord Jesus (the One they pierced in Zec 12:10) and they will repent and accept Him as their Messiah. With the Holy Spirit back in heaven, these new Christians (Israelites) will be sealed so that during the 7th Seal, they will not be affected nor hurt by the wrath of God upon everything on earth.
Rev 6:17 "For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?"
