1993 – First Seal opened with the PLO-Israel Peace Treaty on Sept 13.
1994 – Second Seal opened in April with the Rwandan Genocide. It was 7 months after First Seal.
1997 – Third Seal opened with the Asian Financial Crisis in June. Just over 3 years after the second Seal.
2017/8 – Expect Fourth Seal to be opened with World War 3.
Fourth Seal – Period of Sorrows
Rev 6:7-8 When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see”. So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.
World War 3 deploying weapons of mass destruction, pestilences of deadly plagues, great earthquakes and huge tsunamis and starvation will kill a quarter of all mankind. With today's weapons of mass destruction (WMD), the whole world can be destroyed within hours if only a portion of the nuclear weapons are released. Since three quarter of mankind will be left behind, it will likely be a nuclear free war, and since many will be starved to death it will be quite a long war lasting possibly a year.
This will also be the time when many heathens will come to the Lord, for godly Christians with divine miraculous empowerment will feed and care for them.
Note: - Fourth Seal or World War 3 is expected to last for a year.
Fifth Seal – Period of Tribulations Rev 6:9 When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held.
During this period, Christians will be persecuted and martyred for their faith in exposing the Antichrist, rejecting the abominable Temple of God and also the ‘One World Religion’ where our Lord Jesus Christ’s divinity is denied (read Mat 24:9-28).
Dan 11:31 “And forces shall be mustered by him (king of the North or Antichrist), and they shall defile the sanctuary fortress; then they shall
take away the daily [sacrifices,] and place there the abomination of desolation.
During WW3, the Antichrist will conquer Jerusalem (sanctuary fortress). After the war, he will head the newly formed ‘One World Order’. Immediately he will remove the ‘Al Aqsa mosque’ (where it calls out to Muslims for their daily prayers) and the ‘Dome on the Rock’ on the Temple Mount to make way for the building of the abominable temple (Abomination of desolation).
Dan 12:11 “And from the time that the daily [sacrifice] is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days.”
From the closing of the Al Aqsa mosque (daily sacrifice taken away) to the dedication of the temple of God (abomination of desolation set up) it will be 1,290 days.
Dan 12:12 “Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty- five days.”
From the closing of the Al Aqsa mosque to rapture (blessed hope) will be 1,335 days. So, from the dedication of the temple of God to rapture, it will be 1,335 – 1,290 = 45 days of great Tribulations.
Wrath of Satan or Fifth Seal
Since the wrath of Satan is 42 months or 1,260 days (Rev 13:1-10), then the removal of the mosque will take 1,335 – 1,260 = 75 days, and the building of temple will be 1,290 – 75 = 1,215 days.
Removal of mosque 75 days
Building of temple 1,215 days
Great Tribulations 45 days
Rapture will occur immediately after the great Tribulations.
