In chapter 6 of Revelation, we are entering the more prophetic portion of the book. In the last two chapters, 4 & 5, we were told by John of those in heaven who are waiting in anticipation to see these things finally come to pass, and found that the only One Who was perfect enough to be allowed to open the seals of the scroll is the Lamb, Jesus Christ Who was sacrificed once and for all times to cover our sins. Let’s see what will happen as each of the seals is opened and what they mean to us.
(Rev 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.
Christ wants John to observe what things He will show him next. These are things that He wants John to write and share with everyone; it isn’t meant to be a mystery tossed aside and forgotten about due to lack of interest. These seals are meant to be understood to prepare us for the Tribulation, so that we will know what is going on and will not be deceived by the convincing deception of satan.
(Rev 6:2) 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.
As He opens the first seal, we see a white horse, and this horse represents the Hidden Dynasty of Religion. The rider of the this white horse is satan, coming in the role of Antichrist; and he is trying to impersonate Jesus, and bring in the one world religion. The bow that he is carrying, although it is often thought to be a bow and arrow, in the Greek, is toxon, which is a cheap imitation of the rainbow of glorious light that will surround Jesus Christ when He returns. Antichrist will be coming to conquer the world as a false messiah, that all but God’s elect will be deceived into worshiping, and he will be bringing a false world peace that the whole world will accept because they believe that the Savior of the world has returned.
The one world religion will take advantage of the governmental structure of the one world political system, but will put all power under satan, as Antichrist, for its de facto leader, with his fallen angels serving under him as his lieutenants.
(Rev 6:3) And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
(Rev 6:4) 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.
This second seal unleashes a red horse, and this horse represents the Hidden Dynasty of Politics; its rider is the raiser of taxes which will head the first beast one world government, and he will do so in the power of the dragon, satan. This first beast will pretend to bring world peace, but it is really an enforced world peace that will actually be preparing the world to be killed in a spiritual sense once they accept and worship Antichrist, later on. Those people who have been deceived all along as far as world religions will also be perpetuating the deception themselves through the false Sword, the many deceptions of satan, as they truly have no understanding of the Word of God, so they will be helping to cause the spiritual deaths of those they believe they are leading to God.
The nations, over the centuries, have been moving closer and closer to a political system that brings the nations together into and under one legislative, judicial and executive body. In 1945, these efforts came to fruition with the United Nations, but this is not the ultimate iteration of the one world government. It was however a major step in the direction of satan’s plan for world domination.
(Rev 6:5) 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.
The third seal is the black horse, which represents the Hidden Dynasty of Economy. The dynasty of the economy brings in the world economy that backs the exploits of the one world government financially, and puts the people of the world into bondage financially through taxes and inflation, credit and wealth redistribution, which all ultimately fund the one world government through its own taxes and wealth redistribution.
(Rev 6:6) 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.
(Amo 8:4) Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail,
(Amo 8:5) Saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit?
(Amo 8:6) That we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat?
The balances that the rider of the black horse are falsified balances that are putting a financial burden and strain on the citizens of the world through the economic dynasty. The above verses of Amos are referring to inflation, and offering of the poorest quality of products for sale, to make the most prophet, which is all orchestrated by this dynasty.
(Rev 6:7) And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
(Rev 6:8) 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.
The fourth seal is the pale horse, which represent the Hidden Dynasty of Education. This dynasty of education is the least obvious dynasty of them all, to most people and that is the whole goal of the dynasty. It more-or-less brainwashes the citizens of the world into accepting the lies of the other dynasties so they will not be noticed until it is too late. Of course, the rider of this horse is satan, as he is the one behind all deception and miseducation in the world because it makes him happy when God’s children are led astray form Him.
This brainwashing is accomplished through the school and university systems, as well as through the media: news, the music industry, the movie and television industries. People are reeducated into accepting the lower standards of ideals and morals that the education dynasty wants to promote to its unwitting consumers. It also distracts the world and redirects its attention from the issues and events of real importance, so that the other dynasties can take hold and accomplish their goals without detection.
(Amo 8:11) Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
(Amo 8:12) And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.
The reeducation, or uneducation, depending on how you look at it, will lead to the spiritual deaths of those who are brainwashed by it because they will accept the one world system and Antichrist, in the end, and thus receive the mark of the beast. By the time Antichrist is here, no one will be able to hear or understand the truth in God’s Word because the sealing of God’s servants will have already been accomplished, and this is to protect them from being deceived to accepting Antichrist and receiving the mark of the beast. People will not be able to consume the Word of God or drink from the Water of life.
(Hos 4:6) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
(Hos 4:7) As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame.
As a result of their lack of biblical study, the people of the world will be led away from God and are, for the most part, spiritually dead.
(Dan 7:6) After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.
This beast mentioned in Daniel, the four-headed leopard, is a beast that blends into the people of the world, and goes undetected throughout history, though it has been gaining momentum for thousands of years, from the times of the kings of Israel, and to today. The four heads represent the Four Hidden Dynasties established by a group of people called the kenites, or keniyem, in the Hebrew.
(Deu 32:5) They have corrupted themselves, their spot is not the spot of his children: they are a perverse and crooked generation.
These are the false jews mentioned in Rev 2:9 and 3:9, and they are called kenites. These false jews worked their way into the temple early on in Israelite history as nethinim, servants in the temple, and then became scribes, and later became the priests themselves, who established the priestly orders of the Pharisees and the Sadducees, and conceived and wrote the Talmud. They were believed to be Levitical priests of the southern kingdom of Judah, later known as the land of Judea, and thus called Jews. This is part of a greater plan of deception that has been in the works and will culminate with the one world government, or First Beast of the Tribulation.
These Four Hidden Dynasties began when the kenites entered into temple service thousands of years ago, and thus the religious dynasty was the earliest to have begun. Next was the political dynasty hundreds of years ago, which has been working toward a unification of political power in the world. After this, the economic dynasty was begun to aide in the establishment of the political dynasty. And finally, the educational dynasty was started to help to deceive the world into accepting these established powers as they each gnaw away at the collective freedoms and intellect of the people of the world.
The four dynasties, however, will be finalized in reverse order, with the education dynasty being all but finished at this present time. Then the world economic dynasty is the next to be finalized through the World Bank and other financial and economic systems. Thirdly, the political dynasty will be fully established once the one world government is completely in control, only to be threatened by the deadly head wound. And lastly, the final dynasty to be solidified is the religious dynasty, under the one world religion led by Antichrist, which combines all world religions, that have been gradually merged into the belief that all religions are basically the same and unified under the same messiah–which is not true of course because there is only one Jesus Christ, and all other messiahs are false. All other messiahs have led to Antichrist, as well as has the misunderstood conception of Jesus Christ pushed by milky churches who do not truly understand who Jesus Christ is.
(Zec 1:18) Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns.
(Zec 1:19) And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What be these? And he answered me, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.
Once Zechariah lifted up his eyes, meaning that he awakened spiritually and opened up his spiritual eyes too understand the deeper things that God wants him to understand, he saw these horns, the Four Hidden Dynasties, that caused the tribes of Israel to be scattered and confused as to their true identities.
(Rev 6:9) 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:
These souls who were slain for the Word of God are martyrs and so they are said to be under the altar, as they are a type of sacrifice because they held the Gospel to a higher value than their own lives, and did not flinch to sacrifice their lives for it.
(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?
They are seeing all these things taking place on the earth throughout the ages and are praying that God will allow it to come to an end soon. However, it cannot end until all the souls in Heaven have had a chance to be born in the flesh. God wants His justice to be done, but He is patient so that all the souls have a chance, in His plan, to come to salvation through Jesus Christ.
(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 fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
These souls wear robes made of white linens, white representing truth and purity, that are made up of their righteous acts, and washed clean in the blood of Christ through His grace. They are resting and preparing to return with Jesus Christ as His army, after the Tribulation, to wipe out satan’s army on earth in the battle of Armageddon.
(Jud 1:14) And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
(Jud 1:15) To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
(Rev 6:12) 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;
The sixth seal is the understanding of who Antichrist is and what his plan is at its entirety. It is understanding of how he will enter in and the tricks he will pull and the flood of lies he will bring with him.
(Rev 13:12) And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
(Rev 13:13) And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
(Rev 13:14) And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
Antichrist will be given miraculous power by God to deceive the world, while he is here, that he is the Messiah as also told in 2 Thessalonians.
(Rev 12:14) And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
(Rev 12:15) And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
(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.
Satan will be cast to earth with his fallen angels, and the unripe figs, that would have been good figs, the Christians who want to be faithful to Christ, will allow themselves to be harvested early by Antichrist because they think that Jesus has returned.
(Rev 12:6) And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
This 1230 days represents the first half of the Tribulation, that was known to be three and a half years before it had been officially shortened by Jesus for the sake of His elect.
(Rev 12:7) And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
(Rev 12:8) And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
(Rev 12:9) And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
(Rev 12:10) And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
During the first half of the Tribulation, after satan released his fallen angels from the bottomless pit, they fought God and His angles in Heaven once again, but satan lost this battle and was cast down to earth with his angels, at which time he would take control of the world as Antichrist.
(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.
When Antichrist arrives, there will be a grand entrance, that will be nothing when compared with Jesus’ arrival, but will be great enough to deceive everyone in the world except God’s elect. The world powers, the seven heads of the beast or mountains, of the one world government will be shaken as he will assume de facto power of the world with his one world religious system.
(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;
The leaders of the world in the one world government will believe that the Messiah has returned and they will hide in shame because of the evils they have done and the lack of faith they have had in his return, though of course he will not be the true Messiah.
(Rev 6:16) And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
(Rev 6:17) For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
They will expect great wrath from this false messiah, but as we see in Daniel 11:21 to the end, he will enter peaceably and prosperously.
There is still one seal left, the 7th seal. We will learn in the next chapter a little more about this 6th seal, and then in chapter 8, we will learn just what the 7th seal is.
How about you? Do you know what to expect in the end times? Are you sealed? Would you like to be before Antichrist arrives? Well there is still time, but don’t get lazy, and procrastinate.
