Unsealed: A Closer Look At Revelation 6 And “The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse”

Revelation 6:1, “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…”

Were John’s apocalyptic snapshots and descriptions of the “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” in the Book of Revelation pointing to events that would only take place nearly 2000 years after the visions were first revealed? All too often, many of today’s Christian teachers and Bible prophecy experts have repeated the belief that the entirety of the Book of Revelation, with the exception of the first three chapters, are to be understood in futuristic terms only. I have done this myself in the past. Whether it be the Seven Seals or the Seven Trumpets or the Seven Bowls of wrath, everything contained therein and described by John from Revelation 4:1 onward must be treated as little more than a description of apocalyptic earth-shattering events that we, as Christians, will never witness taking place upon the world in which we live, events that can only begin to come to fruition after an imminent rapture has suddenly removed all followers of Christ from the face of the earth to deliver them from the impending wrath of God and the last-days Beast of Revelation. If we take the time to engage in a careful examination of the text, however, we may begin to see that some of the events often understood as yet to come, are events that are already taking place today.

An Overview Of History: The Islamic Beast Of Revelation – The Past And The Present

After careful study, I have come to the conclusion that, judging from the description of events and their sequence provided for us in Scripture, the “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” described in the first four Seals of Revelation 6 are four separate Read more…

Christian Bishop In Egypt: Christians Are Currently Experiencing Their Worst Time In Recent Centuries, Many Now Unable To Buy Or Sell

If we believed that all of these things were only supposed to happen after the rapture of the Church, then it’s high time to rethink what we thought we knew …

Revelation 13:16-18, “… it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate [‘psēphizō’ – reckon] the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is χξς.”

ACN News – “Christians in Egypt are currently experiencing their worst time in recent centuries. This statement was made by the Coptic Orthodox Bishop Stephanos of Beba and Elfashn to the international Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need (ACN). Christians are being violently killed under the eyes of the international media. Also, for the first time in many years, churches are being systematically burned and destroyed. The police are taking no action and nobody is punished for it. In the Egyptian media, ‘the facts are systematically covered up in order to keep the international media from reporting the truth and bringing pressure from outside,’ he complained. However, video films showing the massacre of demonstrators on 9 October were broadcast by the three television stations operated by the Coptic Church and have thus also found their way into the international media. This time the attacks on Copts ‘have been better documented’.

Problems are also experienced in day-to-day life because calls are often made in the media not to buy from Christian merchants or to sell anything to Christians. Businessmen are therefore faced with a struggle for economic survival. Christians are indirectly excluded from employment, for example by job advertisements specifying ‘a female employee with headscarf’. Attempts are being made ‘to drive the Christians out’.” Read more.

But, in fact, a wholly different kind of war is underway—an unrecognized battle costing thousands of lives. Christians are being killed in the Islamic world because of their religion. It is a rising genocide that ought to provoke global alarm… In recent years the violent oppression of Christian minorities has become the norm in Muslim-majority nations stretching from West Africa and the Middle East to South Asia and Oceania. In some countries it is governments and their agents that have burned churches and imprisoned parishioners. In others, rebel groups and vigilantes have taken matters into their own hands…” Read more.

ISIS Rapes And Kills Women After Abducting 150 Christians, “I See Blood Everywhere”

02/25/2015 7 comments

Here is an update on a story reported just yesterday. Islam forbids its followers the one thing they can drink to never thirst again and replaces it with something that degenerates into an unquenchable thirst. And since it is blood they thirst for, a Day is coming when they will be given blood to drink …

Revelation 16:4, 6-7, “… the third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood… ‘For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, And You have given them blood to drink. For it is their just due.’ And I heard another from the altar saying, ‘Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments.'”

AsiaNews – “Initial ‘reports mentioned 90 people abducted but for others the actual number is greater, perhaps 150. A church was destroyed, at least three Assyrian villages have been occupied and people have had to flee. We do not have accurate information, but the initial evidence points to a tragic situation,’ said Mgr Georges Abou Khazen, Latin apostolic vicar to Aleppo.

The prelate spoke to AsiaNews about Monday’s attack by the Islamic State group against Assyrian villages like Tel Tamar, Tel Shamiran, Tel Hermuz, Goran Tel and Tel Khareta, in north-eastern Syria. Jihadists reportedly raped a woman and then murdered her, but the information could not be confirmed.

Whilst everyone is suffering, ‘Christians feel they have been abandoned,’ said Mgr Mario Zenari, apostolic nuncio to Damascus.

Bassam Ishak, president of the Syriac National Council, reports that latest figure for abducted Christians is at least 150, more than the early figure of 90. They were taken in Al-Hasakah Governorate, north-east of the country, where Assyrian Christian communities have lived for centuries.

Some reports indicate that Islamic State militants killed some hostages. ‘Jihadists have taken a lot of people, including women, the elderly and children,’ said a local source, who requested anonymity for security reasons. ‘They burnt their houses, and torched a church.’ And ‘At least six’ people were killed. The terrorists ‘also raped a woman before killing her.’

The Syriac Military Council, a Christian paramilitary organisation, said that the IS attack on Christian villages was an act of revenge following jihadist defeat in Kobane and other villages in the area, following the Peshmerga offensive and international coalition air strikes.

The apostolic nuncio in Damascus agrees. ‘They came down from the mountains around 3 am Monday morning, and attacked an area largely inhabited by Assyrian-Nestorian,’ he told AsiaNews.

This a ‘high risk area.’ Some ‘four or five months ago, I received a text message from the bishop of Hassakah, in which he warned that the danger of a jihadist invasion was high.’

After they were pushed out of Kobane, ‘they shifted to these villages to seize more land,’ Mgr Zenari explained. Now Christians feel abandoned, he added.  However, everyone has suffered. ‘I see blood everywhere, in the cities, in the neighbourhoods. The desert has changed colour. It is no longer golden yellow but blood red.'” Read more.

Biggest Solar Eclipse Since 1999 To Disrupt Power Supplies, Block Out Up To 95% Of Sunlight In Parts Of Europe

02/25/2015 Leave a comment

Shabbat HaChodesh, the Sabbath before the month of Passover, will begin at sundown on March 20th, the same day as this solar eclipse. In Jewish lore, there is a spiritual significance to a solar eclipse. According to Issue 247 of “Ask the Rabbi” in August 1999:

At the time when the sun is eclipsed, it is an unfavorable period for the world. A parable: This can be compared to a human king who made a feast for his subjects, and placed a lantern before them. When he grew angry with them, he told his servant, “Take away the lantern from before them, and place them in darkness!” (Talmud Bavli, Succah 29a)

The king is G-d, the King of Kings; the people at the table are ourselves; the lantern is the sun. The moon obscuring the sun is the king’s servant who takes away the lantern. Although eclipses can be described in entirely natural terms and occur at set intervals, they nevertheless indicate that the period is one of Divine retribution for various sins.

So, a solar eclipse signifies a harsh period. But an eclipse does not mean that the sun has been extinguished (contrary to what everyone else in the world thought)! The servant did not extinguish the lantern; he merely prevented it from illuminating the king’s subjects. The sun shines as merrily as ever during an eclipse, even if we cannot perceive its light.

Many eras in history have been dark for us. But during these times, we should remember that G-d’s light has not been extinguished; it is merely in a state of hester panim, hiddenness. The sun is not extinguished during an eclipse, nor does it move away; it is merely concealed. And just as the sunlight always emerges from its eclipse, so too are all situations of hester panim only temporary, destined to be followed by the light of G-d’s redemption.

Joel 2:31-32, “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.”

By Victoria Ward, The Telegraph – “Power supplies could drop suddenly next month when the UK is plunged into darkness with an eclipse of the sun.

Energy experts warned there could be possible blackouts in the biggest solar eclipse since 1999.

Nearly 90 per cent of the sun’s rays will be blocked out in parts of Europe on March 20.

In London and the South East, 85 per cent of the sun will be obscured by the moon whilst in northern Scotland, more than 95 per cent will be covered.

The National Grid has warned that solar power output in Britain will halve during the event.

It is unlikely to cause problems as so little electricity comes from solar power im the UK but other parts of Europe come be plunged into darkness.

The European Network Transmission System Operators for Electricity said: ‘The risk of incident cannot be completely ruled out. Solar eclipses have happened before but with the increase of installed photovoltaic energy generation, the risk of an incident could be serious without appropriate countermeasures.’

The organisation said it had been planning for months so that suppliers across Europe provide more energy from other power stations during the hours that solar energy supplies are hit.” Read more.

Blood Moon Tetrads and Triples and Solar Eclipses – “NASA says there will be 12,064 lunar eclipses between -1999 BC and +3000 AD. Of these 12,064 lunar eclipses, 3,479 will be total lunar eclipses. That’s an average of less than one total lunar eclipse per year. It is an average of 2.5 lunar eclipses per year of ‘total plus partial’ lunar eclipses. During that time there will be 142 Lunar Tetrads (four total lunar eclipses in a row, with no intervening partial lunar eclipse). 62 will occur between 1 AD and 2100 AD. Of the 62, 8 will occur on Biblical Feast Days, so they are called ‘Biblical Tetrads’. The 8th ‘Biblical Tetrad’ occurs in 2014-2015 and there will not be another ‘Biblical Tetrad’ for almost 600 years. We are in the time of this tetrad now.” Read more.

Egypt: Muslim Children Idolize ISIS, Pretend To Behead Christians On Video

02/24/2015 2 comments

Luke 17:1-2, “Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Things that cause people to sin are bound to come, but woe to that person through whom they come. It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones [children] to sin.’”

The Clarion Project – “Egyptian children have released an online video imitating ISIS’s slaughter of Egyptians Copts in Libya. In the short clip they imitate the jihadists slaughtering their prisoners, using sticks for knives.

One of the kids, playing the role of the leader and holding a stick for a sword, said ‘we are slaughtering the children, women and old people’ after that he commands his ‘fighters’ to carry out the ‘slaughter.’

The clip was filmed in the city of El-Mahalla in the Nile delta.

Dr. Yasri Abdel Muhsen, an academic psychologist, told Al-Arabiya, that publishing ISIS’ clips makes jihadists into heroes in the imagination of children, especially if you understand that the kids feel a kind of uniqueness watching those clips again and again.

He emphasized that watching and re-watching the clips causes the imagination to become mixed with reality. He noted that psychological studies show that if a child gets three hours of indirect education (such as through watching these videos) it affects 70% of their behavior. When a child watches ISIS’ crimes, he is being influenced by an unconscious will to imitate. Children are predisposed to mimic, for example family members in their movements, their tone of speech and their behavior. When these sights repeat themselves, Dr. Muhsen stressed, a child has no choice but imitation.

Dr. Muna Ahmed Hussein, a scholar of cultural media, told Al-Arabiya that what the children in El-Mahalla did emphasized a crisis taking place in Egyptian society. She said we are facing a generation that started imitating the crimes of the society unaware of their severity. In the future a child can get used to it and even contract complicated mental illnesses.

She described how American soldiers that fought in Iraq came back suffering from mental illness due to the sights of killing, the violence and the frequent exposure to seeing corpses and blood.

In the past most of the families refused to let children watch the slaughter of chickens or sheep so that they won’t be affected by that mentality and so it won’t invoke their feelings. But now, unfortunately, Dr Hussein said, families are calling on their children to watch violent movies and clips of ISIS.” Source – The Clarion Project.

Report: Islamic State Abducts At Least 90 Christians In Northeastern Syria

02/24/2015 1 comment

Heavenly Father, give them the strength to endure, no matter what the cost …

Matthew 10:28, “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.”

John 16:2b-3, “… the time is coming when those who kill you will think they are doing a holy service for God. This is because they have never known the Father or Me.”

Matthew 10:22, “… But he who endures to the end will be saved.”

By Suleiman Al-Khalidi, Reuters – “Islamic State militants have abducted at least 90 people from Assyrian Christian villages in northeastern Syria, a monitoring group tracking violence in Syria said on Tuesday.

The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said they carried out dawn raids on rural villages inhabited by the ancient Christian minority west of Hasaka, a city mainly held by the Kurds.

Syrian Kurdish militia launched two offensives against the militants in northeast Syria on Sunday, helped by U.S.-led air strikes and Iraqi peshmerga.

This part of Syria borders territory controlled by Islamic State in Iraq, where it committed atrocities last year against the Yazidi religious minority.

Islamic State did not confirm the kidnappings. Supporters posted photos online of the group’s fighters in camouflage attire looking at maps and firing machine guns. The website said the photos were from Tel Tamr, a town near where the Observatory said the abductions occurred.

Many Assyrian Christians have emigrated in the nearly four-year-long conflict in which more than 200,000 have people have been killed. Before the arrival of Kurds and Arab nomadic tribes at the end of the 19th century, Christians formed the majority in Syria’s Jazeera area, which includes Hasaka.” Read more.

ISIS Vows To Conquer Rome And “Throw Homosexuals” Off The Leaning Tower Of … Pizza

By Stephanie Linning, Mail Online – “Hapless Islamic State militants have vowed online to take over Rome – and ‘throw homosexuals off the leaning tower of pizza’.

In the message, posted by a Twitter account linked to the terror group, the ISIS supporter also threatens to bring sharia law to the Italian capital.

It comes just days after masked jihadists warned of their intention to conquer the city in a video that showed the mass beheading of 21 Christians in Libya.

But rather than spark widespread panic, the threats have triggered a flood of mocking responses – with dozens taking to social media to make fun of the jihadists and their takeover plans.

In the threat posted today, Twitter user Abu Abdullah Britani, who openly publicises ISIS activity, wrote: ‘#We_Are_Coming_O_Rome with slaughter’.

The message was soon followed by one that read:  ‘#We_Are_Coming_O_Rome, we will conquer & establish the justice of #shariah. We will use your leaning tower of pizza to throw off homosexual’.

The terrorists have previously thrown men off of buildings for ‘being gay’.

Earlier this year, images emerged that appeared to show militants hurling one man off a building in the town of Tal Abyad in Raqqa as supposed punishment for having a ‘homosexual affair’.

This most recent threat appears to indicate the terrorists intend to bring their barbaric practices to Europe – and plan to repeat the horrific scenes off the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

It appears the tweeter is unaware the tower is in Pisa, not Rome.” Read more.

Israel: Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat Wrestles “Palestinian” Jihadist Attacker In Street

02/23/2015 2 comments

Israel’s Barkat intervenes. America’s Barack intercedes. Such is the abomination of an Obama Nation …

Proverbs 18:5, “It is not good to show partiality to the wicked, or to overthrow the righteous in judgment.”

Proverbs 17:15, “He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the just, both of them alike are an abomination to the LORD.”

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “‘Before Barkat intervened, the distant but distinct black-and-white footage showed a man waving his arm in a stabbing motion and making contact with one individual and attempting to stab others as they waited to cross the road. When they realized what had happened, the pedestrians ran clear…. Security camera footage showed mayor Nir Barkat, in a white shirt, walk towards the suspect together with his bodyguard and lunge at him, pinning him down on a pedestrian crossing before others took charge and detained the man.’ This is the kind of mayor that all American and European cities are going to need before too long.

‘Israel’s Jerusalem mayor wrestles Palestinian attacker in street,’ Reuters, February 23, 2015:

JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israel’s mayor of Jerusalem and his security guard wrestled a Palestinian attacker to the ground near city hall on Sunday after an ultra-Orthodox Jew was stabbed with a knife at a busy intersection.

Security camera footage showed mayor Nir Barkat, in a white shirt, walk towards the suspect together with his bodyguard and lunge at him, pinning him down on a pedestrian crossing before others took charge and detained the man.

Before Barkat intervened, the distant but distinct black-and-white footage showed a man waving his arm in a stabbing motion and making contact with one individual and attempting to stab others as they waited to cross the road. When they realized what had happened, the pedestrians ran clear.

The stab victim was rushed to hospital but was not seriously hurt, medical officials said. Police said the suspect, an 18-year-old Palestinian, did not have authorization to reside in Israel.

“My bodyguard took out his weapon and when he aimed at the terrorist, the terrorist dropped his knife and we immediately tackled him on the ground to make sure that he cannot continue with the terror attack,” Barkat told reporters shortly afterwards.

Barkat, 55, served as an officer in the paratroopers’ brigade. A former high-tech entrepreneur, he was elected as Israel’s mayor of Jerusalem in 2008….

Again: ISIS Burns Another 50 People Alive In Western Iraq

02/23/2015 1 comment

I had often envisioned bombings, a prime modus operandi of Islamic terror, when reading about how the Beast would turn against and destroy the “Whore of Babylon” with fire. But in light of recent events, John may have also been describing the unconscionable method of execution we are now witnessing today …

Revelation 17:16, “And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire.”

AWR – “Daesh militants have reportedly burned to death 50 civilians in Iraq’s violence-plagued western province of al-Anbar, in a brutal execution similar to the one previously carried out on a Jordanian pilot.

Provincial sources, requesting anonymity, said the men were killed in the town of Hit, located about 140 kilometers (85 miles) west of the capital, Baghdad, Iraq’s public broadcaster al-Iraqiya TV reported on Saturday.

The development comes less than a week after Daesh (ISIL) members torched to death at least 45 people in the conflict-ridden city of Khan al-Baghdadi, situated about 180 kilometers (110 miles) northwest of Baghdad.

The identities of those killed by Daesh in Khan al-Baghdadi have not been released, but local police chief, Colonel Qasim al-Obeidi, said on February 17 that many of the victims were believed to have been security forces.” Read more.
