The First Seal: "And I (John) 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." (Revelation 6:2).
EXPLANATION: The rider of the white horse represents "great words" of the beast; and "great wonders" of the False Prophet.
The Second Seal: "And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword." (Revelation 6:4).
EXPLANATION: The opening of this seal brings about war; violence.
The Third Seal: "And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the 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. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine." (Revelation 6:5).
EXPLANATION: This seal represents food shortage; inflation: the penny, a silver coin, in that time could buy 8 measures of wheat and 24 measures of barley.
The Fourth Seal: "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 over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth." (Revelation 6:8).
EXPLANATION: The pale horse represents disease.
The Fifth Seal: "And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held." (Revelation 6:9).
EXPLANATION: This reveals that there will be many martyrs for Christ from this point.
The Sixth Seal: "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...and every mountain and island were moved out of their places...For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?" (Revelation 6:12, 13, 14&17).
EXPLANATION: This is astronomical, ominous event. Also, the sixth seal occurs directly before the three and one-half year great tribulation begins.
The Seventh Seal: "And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets." (Revelation 8:1&2).
EXPLANATION: The seventh seal brings about the seven trumpets which all occur in one night after the evening of the opening of the seven seals -- a ceremony in heaven.
The First Trumpet: "The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up." (Revelation 8:7).
EXPLANATION: An effect of the sixth seal.
The Second Trumpet: "And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed." (Revelation 8:8&9).
EXPLANATION: An asteroid landing in the sea.
The Third Trumpet: "And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter." (Revelation 8:10&11).
EXPLANATION: An asteroid landing on a continent; Wormwood means bitter.
The Fourth Trumpet: "And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of stars; so as the third part of it, and the night likewise." (Revelation 8:12).
EXPLANATION: A repercussion from the third trumpet, or the sixth seal.
The Fifth Trumpet: "And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them." (Revelation 9:1-3).
EXPLANATION: ********************************** An angel from heaven lets out the dark angel Apollyon out of the bottomless pit who then will inhabit the man of the beast--666. The demon locust will torment men upon the earth for the first five months of the three and one-half year great tribulation then the locust will die.
The Sixth Trumpet: "And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them." (Revelation 9:13-16).
EXPLANATION: This is huge army east of the Euphrates River which will be a major player at Armageddon (see Rev. 16:12). The number of the army is two hundred million.
"And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not." (Revelation 10:4).
EXPLANATION: These thunders occur between the sixth trumpet, and the seventh trumpet. The seven thunders being as theorized by this website when the galaxy goes back to year 2013 Fall to start the three and one-half year end -- The Backwards-Time-Event.
The Seventh Trumpet: "But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets." (Revelation 10:7).
EXPLANATION: This trumpet brings about various announcements in heaven; there will be three and one-half years left from this point on. This is the time of The Rapture.
"And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God." (Revelation 15:1).
The First Vial: "And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image." (Revelation 16:1&2).
The Second Vial: "And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea." (Revelation 16:3).
The Third Vial: "And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood...And thou hast given them blood to drink" (Revelation 16:4).
The Fourth Vial: "And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory." (Revelation 16:8).
The Fifth Vial: "And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds." (Revelation 16:10&11).
The Sixth vial: "And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared... And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon." (Revelation 16:12&16).
The Seventh vial: "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. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great." (Revelation 16:17,18,20&21).
