Further in the vision John saw the throne, were the Almighty was seating. And the Almighty had a book sealed by seven seals. And they could not find the worthy man neither in the sky, nor on the ground to open the book. But, «And one of the elders saith unto me, weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth» (5:5,6).
It is clear, that the right to take the seals off the book, which had been written by God before the creation of the world belongs to Jesus. In his first arrival he was a Lamb sacrificed for the sins of mankind, in the second arrival he will be a lion, battling with the impious.
Chapter 6. The Lamb removes the 1st seal – «…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».
2 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».
The 3 seal – «... 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» (Compare in Ezek.4:16 «eat bread by weight» means – hunger) .
The 4 seal – «...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 first seal
was taken off after 1850, when the Devil
and his angels were thrown to the earth, the Heavenly Sanctuary was cleansed and
the Court above mankind began. The man on white
horse marks the activation of missionary activity. With the fall of Vatican the
Bible was not closed in the walls of monasteries and monastery libraries and
became accessible for the greater number of people. With the creation of the
printed machine the missionaries received the Bible and it became easier to
preach the word of God.
The 2nd seal (red horse - wars) was broken in 1914. This year the most scale and awful war began. The First World War was much more, than all significant wars, held within 2 400 years till 1914AD. However the Second World War which began only in 21 years after the end of the First World War was in 4 times more destructive, than the first one -55 million victims,. Since the end of the Second World War in 150 wars more than 25 million people were killed. On the average 12 wars were daily conducted somewhere in the world.
