1-st - It is desirable, attractive, promises a quick, easy and glorious victory. How easy it is to buy into this. 2nd - Still has hope and even an ambulance that has started to slip away. The fuss begins, at such a time, there are blunders. Rev 6:5-6 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.
And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat (Hinix) for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
|Hinix||Daily ration 5518χοινιξ – shackles, ~450 AD measure||2218ζυγος measure - beam of weights, yoke [from harnessing, tying].|
Unlike the story of the 4-th Kingdom, there is not too much high price, but what we call "from paycheck to paycheck." Denarius is the payment for the day of work, and the hinix is the norm for the day of bread, and for one person, not for the family. Such a situation can last as long as desired, that is, "shackles". "From salary to salary" and "every man for himself."
3rd - Agony. Trying to hold on. Goals justify the means.
4th - Demoralized finally. To achieve the goal, all means are good. There is no worthy goal, a frank struggle for power. We can see this in the elections. The horse himself does nothing, he carries the rider. These are 4 spirits that will captivate the world order, the modern tower of Babel. 5-th seal Rev 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? Rev 6:11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, (), should be fulfilled. Ps 13:2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me? Ps 79:10 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is their God? let him be known among the heathen in our sight by the revenging of the blood of thy servants which is shed. Lk 11:50-51 50 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;
51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation. It is a thirst for justice and a thirst for God. God gave them gifts, so they calmed down - white clothes. God does not rush to punish people. The Apostle Paul wrote: Rom 12:14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. He experienced on his own skin what it means to be unforgiving, which means that it's good to fall down and everything that people want is revenge. As we all need mercy. 6th seal This is a penalty before the outcome. As we saw in the book the outcome, that the executions concerned only the ungodly. Joel 2:28-32 28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.
32 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. Mk 13:25-26 25 And the stars of heaven shall () fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.
26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. For us it is a book of joyful anticipation of the appearance of Jesus, and not waiting for executions, reckoning. Rev 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. Spiritual revolution. Physical laws change. God's Kingdom was inside, limited, and the physical - was outside, and now - in cramped. Heb 12:26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. Therefore, accepting a kingdom that is unshakable, let us cherish the grace with which we will serve God pleasingly, with reverence and fear, because our God is a consuming fire. Rev 6:13 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. The heavenly forces were hesitant, for many they were the basis, at times, as a consequence, they will shake and they, everything that is built on the wrong basis. Rev 6:15 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; It is they, and not believers, who speak about the wrath of God, without knowing mercy. In the 7th chapter we will see a completely opposite anger. Mk 13:24-30 24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,
25 And the stars of heaven shall () fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.
26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.
28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near:
29 So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.
30 Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.
31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. Seeing all this, we expect His soon coming. The fig tree in the Bible is the prototype of Israel. Today, Israel is restored, which means that our generation (this generation will not pass away) will see the coming of Jesus. Is 13:10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
