28 “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”
A major storm is coming. The saved can see it coming but the lost cannot. It is a huge destructive storm bigger than a hurricane. This storm is called the 7 year time of jacobs troulb, the Day of the Lord, the 70th week of Daniels prophecy, or simply the tribulation period. It is a time when the wrath of God is poured out upon this evil, depraved world. Today we can see the storm being setup right in front of us. However, this storm will not arrive until some time after the rapture of the saved. But today we can see the shadows of this storm all around us even though it is not here yet.
27 “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.”
This coming storm has the wrath of God in it. Things on earth will be very terrible once it arrives after the rapture. The rapture does not trigger this storm. There is a gap from the rapture to the start of the 7 year time of jacobs trouble. The antichrist will be revealed after the rapture. He will confirm a 7 year covenant of death and hell with Israel. This will start up the 7 year time of jacobs trouble with the wrath of God. This is what is explained in the above quoted verse.
As we see the storm coming, in the distance, we can easily see shadows of the 4 horsemen. These are the beginning wrath judgments on earth. Lets look.
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.
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.
The first seal is simply the white horse that rides. It carries the antichrist beast that was revealed to the world after the rapture of the saved. He goes forth to conquer with a bow. But there is no mention of any arrows. This means he will conquer by lies and deception. The devil is the father of lies and the coming antichrist has his nature and does the same.
3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
4 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.
Here we see the red horse riding forth. He causes war to break out upon the earth. He also has a great sword. This means that many will be killed as he rides.
The shadow can be seen today. Just look at russia and the ukraine war. That has the potential to expload into a major war. But dont stop there. Look at china who is right now mobilizing for war. They plan to attack the usa and taiwan in the days ahead. Also look at the crazy nation of north korea which has working ballistic missiles that can carry nukes. Also, have a look at Israel. They are surrounded by hostile Iran proxies who all seek the destruction of Israel. This war between Israel, Iran and its proxies is coming. It is just a matter of time. As you can see the shadow of the red horse is all over the world today.
Next cones the black horseman:
5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the 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.
6 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.
As the black horse rides the economies of the world crash and go into turmoil. There will also be food shortages where a days wages will only buy one a loaf of bread.
Right now all kinds of economic experts warn of the coming crashes of the dollar and stock market. We can see the shadow of food shortages right now as the wicked disrupt production and the supply of food around the world. Today we hear all kinds of advise to invest in gold and precious metals for security. But just read James 5 and see what will happen to precious metals. Gold and silver will crash to zero causing the rich to weep and howl in misery from their financial loss. Many today are into crypto. Privacy coins are the best. But that also will become useless as the antichrist's digital dollar gets implemented. In order to buy or sell one must use the money of the antichrist system. This black horseman will devestate finances in the whole world.
Next, comes the pale horseman
7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
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 over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
When the pale horseman rides death and disease come with it. Today mad scientists are messing with God's creation and doing things forbidden. They are messing with dna and things that make people sick. Well the 4th horsmen, the pale horse, will bring so much sickness and death that 1/4 of the world's population will die. This will be a real pandemics that will kill many people.
From here the judgments will continue throughout the 7 year time of jacobs trouble. The most terrible days on earth will come. Many will die from the wrath of God upon this earth. For more information just read Rev 6-19 which describes all the events in this 7 yeear time of jacobs trouble. In this time period, the wrath of God is poured out with the goal of destroying the wicked from this earth.
The lost unsaved soul is totally blind to this coming storm and the coming wrath of God upon earth. They live their lives totally blind to what is coming. Many simply laugh and mock when they hear of it. Here is what the bible says:
1 Thessalonians 5
3 “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.”
As you can see the lost unsaved soul will be taken completely by surprise when the wrath and judgment of God comes in this storm. They will not escape.
To the saved, they are not blind. The saved can see this storm of the wrath of God coming. It is not here yet but today we can see the shadows and see the storm coming from afar.
1 Thessalonians 5
4 “But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.”
In light of this, the saved warn the lost. They say the wrath of God is coming soon. Repent and get saved as time is running out. The storm of the judgment of God is coming and you do not want to be left behind to go through it. Right now, admit you are a lost sinner. Then trust the Lord Jesus alone for eternal salvation. Get saved today as tomorrow may be too late.
