The seals of Revelations chapter 5 verses 6 and 8, according to American Christianity, have been assigned outward meaning which really has no effect upon them. For they put everything which seems bad to them as either History or future events and beings Jesus went from a scapegoat to The Great Escape Artist – you know, we’ll all get a free ride out of here before any judgments come upon the earth, just receive Him – He did it all for us. One thing they most certainly want to hear not about is that there’s more to the story. It all fits together if people would just open their eyes, ears, and hearts! These seals have a personal application that need be walked through.

Remember in Revelations 1:1, Jesus unveils divine mysteries to John by His angel who sent and communicated it to him. Communicated it means, signified it (signa) referred to as symbols or signs. Most people will agree with this, that Revelations is full of signs and symbols.
Now lets take a look closer; John was in prison while writing this, he was on the island of Patmos because of his steadfast witness to Jesus Christ (Rev. 1:9), Do you really think if he had written out plainly (without signs and symbols) that which he was to share with them, that the prison officials would let it get out? No! So this is why he wrote it in this fashion. Those whom it was sent to KNEW the Old Testament, and what Jesus taught.

The new is in the old contained,
The old is in the new explained,
The new is in the old concealed,
The old is in the new revealed,
The new is in the old enfolded,
The old is in the new unfolded.

They knew it’s in the old contained, concealed, enfolded. So for us, we might have to look a little harder (Heb.8:5, 10:1, Col. 2:17).
The prison guards probably figured John had lost it, so they
allowed it to be sent out.
Rev. 1:3 (Amp.), Blessed (happy ,to be envied) are those who hear [it read] and who keep themselves true to the things which are written in it [heeding them and laying them to heart], for the time [for them to be fulfilled] is near.
Why on Gods green earth, would this be written if it didn’t pertain to us; and what about those 500 years ago?
It would appear by what we are told that at least we know we’re in the Laodicean age and need to be overcoming that – which most have not – and that Antichrists number is 666, so don’t take it.
His Word is real and alive in every age, again, it’s not God nor the Bible that has a problem, it’s us. Especially American Christianity – why do we keep harping on them? Because they are most responsible. They have the freedom and monetary means by which to spread His Gospel, yet they themselves are not living it; bringing upon themselves and this nation the judgments from God, if they don’t TRULY repent and turn from their wicked ways (according to Gods standards, not Americas). This judgment is NOT to be confused with those we voluntarily walk through.
Luke 12:47,48, And that servant, which knew his Lords will, and prepared not himself (did not get ready) neither did according to his will (act as he would wish him to act), shall be beaten with many stripes, But he that knew not and did commit things worthy of stripes (lashes), shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whom so ever much is given, of him shall much be required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. Our responsibility and accountability be great. Read the context before these verses. And in Matthew 8:11, and 12, the Lord is here stressing the element of exclusion awaiting the unrepentant, yes, Sons of the Kingdom, in this instance, was literally speaking of the unrepentant Jews who thought that because of their ancestry they had automatic entrance into the Kingdom of God (sounds like American Christianity!). We have all fallen far to short.
Some here do not agree; You mean Gods got a secret and He isn’t telling anyone, yet He says to hear it, read it, and keep yourselves TRUE to the things written in it `heeding them and laying them to heart?
Here is a good place to clear up a little matter. American Christians have this idea, belief, that they somehow are in a category all their own, special I guess, which has caused them at large to become lethargic and to set aside truth that they know is truth; to not really be true.

BONDSERVANTS SEALED (Rev. 7:3,4), Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, until we have sealed the bondservants (one who is in a permanent relation of servitude to another, his will altogether consumed in the will of the other) of our God on their foreheads. And I heard the number of those who were sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel.
Here’s a micky! The overcomers in Revelations are believed by most, to be natural Jews by birth as we today know them. Forget not that there are ten lost tribes, only two remaining as seen.
So here, Christians don’t believe they need to be an overcomer. Why? If pre or mid tribulation believers, you will be removed from this physical earth (raptured) before the Great Tribulation. If a post tribulation believer – then this means you too had better be an overcomer and this brings great confusion because of the lie put forth 200 years ago of the rapture theory as we know it today.
May I interject a true story at this time. Someone went to a bible study where the pastor of that church was the teacher. At the beginning he said, Today I want to hear more talk, questions asked, discussions, instead of me just teaching. They were in the Old Testament, reading all about the Jews and their disobedience to God. Harping on them as to how could they do this, act this way, etc., and not see what they were doing and their need for repentance. This person had enough and raised her hand to ask a question. Us being spiritual Israel, aren’t we doing the same thing and don’t we need to repent? Trying to stop the pointing fingers and putting it into proper perspective. But the pastor blew! Heresy! Give me scripture for that. So she did, then he said, and now I suppose you’ll give me ——(quoting a scripture)? No, and she gave another – reading each one as they came up. He said, It’s still heresy. End. After the study he addressed the gal and said, About that little bit of heresy, it REALLY ISN’T heresy but it brings confusion to people, so don’t talk about it, and if you can’t submit to the elders then go find another church where you can submit. She thought, why leave this lie within the people which causes the confusion. Why not tell them the truth, no matter what the elders think.
Now if anyone was told who the pastor was who got so irate – they would not believe this came out of his mouth. Especially he knowing what was said, was true. But there were and are witnesses.
What got his goat? Why not speak the truth, that we have indeed been adopted and grafted into the vine and that we are no less His people than natural Jews of the Old Testament.
Do you read how I read this? Who is a Jew – Israel – who are His
Romans 2:28 &29, For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly; neither is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh. But he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that which is of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter; and his praise is not from men but from God.
Romans 9:6-8, But it is not as though the word of God has failed, for they are not all Israel who are descended from Israel; neither are they all children because they are Abrahams descendants, but; `Through Isaac your descendants will be named. That is, it is not the children of the flesh who are children of God, but the children of the promise are regarded as descendants. (which is those born in and through Jesus, born of the Spirit – a higher realm).
Galatians 3:7, Therefore, be sure that it is those who are of faith who are of Abraham.
Galatians 3:29, And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abrahams offspring; heirs according to promise.
Romans 11:17-25, But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive, were grafted in among them and became partaker with them of the rich root of the olive tree, do not be arrogant, remember that it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you. You will say then, `branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in. Quite right, they were broken off for their unbelief, but you stand by your faith. Do not be conceited, but fear; for if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will He spare you. Behold then the kindness and severity of God; to those who fell, severity, but to you, Gods kindness, if you continue in His kindness; otherwise you also will be cut off. And they also, if they do not continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in; for God is able to graft them in again. For if you were cut off from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more shall these who are natural branches be grafted into their own olive tree? For I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this mystery lest you be wise in your own estimation, that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.
Most American Christians haven’t even paid the price to be counted His disciples and yet they think themselves as in a good place, even better than the Israel of the Old Testament; that no judgment can touch them and most certainly not His wrath; that once saved you are always saved and exempt. Always His. Oh Yah? He says it plainly right here, that because of arrogance (false
humility as the Pharisees in the New Testament) you can and could already be broken off from the TRUE root, no longer a part of His. Now this does not mean that after you sleep 1,000 years, that the dealings you went through wouldn’t have changed you, so you too could be grafted back in. The natural Jews (at large) have been broken off for 2,000 years, now what makes you better? HIS WORD says differently, it even says your name can be blotted out of the Lambs Book of Life. How thinkest thou! All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field; the grass withered, the flower fadeth because the Spirit of the Lord bloweth upon it. Surely the people is grass. (Isaiah. 40:6 & 7).
We could say and write more but this would be a book in itself.
So if you are grafted into the natural vine, you are adopted. Then guess what folks, you don’t get to escape (be raptured as taught) in your sins. Oh that we were natural Jews and understood more better their manner and ways of old, which are types and shadows.
Rev.14:1,4, And I looked and behold, the Lamb (Jesus) was standing on Mount Zion (salvation, Hebrews 12:22), and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His name (nature, character) and the name of His Father written on their forehead (thoughts and LIVES); 144,000 who had been purchased from the earth. These are the ones who have not been defiled with women, for they have kept themselves chaste (virgins, pure as single maidens).These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These have been purchased from among men as first fruits to God and to the Lamb. (Ephesians 5:27). This is to be us – whether natural Jew or Gentile, all is in and through Jesus.
2 Corinthians 11:2-4, For I am jealous for you with a Godly jealousy; for I betrothed you to one husband, that to Christ I might present you as a pure virgin. But I am afraid lest as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your MINDS should be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.
Funny thing here – many a Christian have been quick to quote this scripture about being simple, to cover up their real lack of devotion and truth.
Verse 4… For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we (these apostles, not your preacher, or teachers) have not preached, or received a different spirit, which you have not accepted, you bear this beautifully.
Now, if you are of the faith, you are grafted into the natural vine which means you are a part of one of the tribes of Israel. This must be revealed by the Holy Spirit, and there be confirmation
to such.
Now, if you are of the faith, you are grafted into the natural vine which means you are a part of one of the tribes of Israel. This must be revealed by the Holy Spirit, and there be confirmation to such.
But what about the Rapture? To hit this lightly read 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18, For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, shall not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.
Which trumpet are they speaking of? Remember, the Bible will interpret itself. 1 Corinthians 15:52 tells you which one.
1 Corinthians 15:50-53, Now I say this, brethren; that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God (which is within you and is a higher realm in Spirit, yet to be made manifest); nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Behold, I tell you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, AT THE LAST TRUMPET; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable must put on imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.
Now back in 1 Thessalonians 4:17, it says, caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Where is He going that we go to meet Him? Let’s look at it this way; if you (person A), say Jesus, are going somewhere and someone comes out to meet you (us), doesn’t that person (A) finish going on to where he, (A) was going? And from what it appears, He (Jesus) is coming here, otherwise it would have said that He came to meet us. I know this could be debated but it is worth chewing over. For in Revelations 19, especially verse 14, He (Jesus) is coming here.
And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen white and clean, were following Him on white horses. Above in verses 7&8, we see the Bride clothed in fine linen which it says are the RIGHTEOUS acts of the saints (obedience).
Do you know we have a great CLOUD of witnesses surrounding us, and that apart from us they should not be made perfect? Hebrews chapters 11 and 12, especially verse40 of 11 and verses 1 & 2 of chapter 12.
Revelations 1:7, Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every
eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. Even so Amen.
Matthew 24:30 &31, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory. And He will send forth His angels with a great trumpet and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.
Revelations 1:6, And He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father; to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Revelations 20:4 & 6 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of the testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark upon their forehead and upon their hand; and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in THE FIRST RESURRECTION; over these the second death (eternal death within respect to the natural and temporal) has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years.
Revelations 5:9 & 10, And they sang a new song, saying, `Worthy art Thou to take the book, and to break its seals; For Thou wast slain , and didst purchase for God with Thy blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. And Thou hast made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth.
1 Thessalonians 4:14 &15, For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, shall not precede those who have fallen asleep.
Talk about longevity of life. How are you trying to do this and how far will you get? There is a better way – sin brings death, Jesus paid the price – the Second Adam – so all can be cleansed by His power that dwells within, if ye deny not that power and walk through His judgments (seals) which are there to cleanse one of all that be of the fallen nature. And everyone who lives and believes in Me shall never die, Believest thou this? For they died standing up, they lost THEIR head life. Especially in this day and age where it is very likely we’ll experience 1 Thessalonians 4:17 – then we who are alive and remain
From the Old Testament to the finalization of the New Testament being brought in – which be to the resurrection and
ascension of Christ, did the world stop, end, or change course? No! But there were outward affects from this.
Matthew 27:51-54, And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom, and the earth shook; and the rocks were split, and the tombs were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the tombs after His resurrection they entered the holy city and appeared to many. Now the centurion, and those who were with him keeping guard over Jesus, when they saw the earth quake and the things that were happening became very frightened and said, `Truly this was the Son of God.
Luke 23:44-45 And it was now about the sixth hour, and darkness fell over the whole land until the ninth hour, the sun being obscured; and the veil of the temple was torn in two.
So what makes going from the New Testament to what people call the Kingdom Age any different? There will be outward affects of course and I’m sure quite perplexing ones.
Isaiah 13:8 (Amp.) says in regards to the Day of the Lord, and they (of Babylon) shall be dismayed and terrified, pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman in child birth, they will GAZE STUPIFIED and AGHAST at one another, their faces will be aflame (from the affects of the unprecedented warfare). But life will go on, only in a far different way; by the end of all this, maybe because of outward goings on, or it could be spiritual, or BOTH.

In most Bibles the word judgments,(#4941 in the Strongs Concordance), has been replaced with the word ordinances or justice. From a word study, Justice and ordinances still goes to number 4941 and the meaning of the word is its original meaning. New Bibles are printed, mostly to make its reading more understandable to us today. This also unfortunately, holds true when a society no longer understands what a word means or is saying – so they change the word to fit their thinking. This has obviously been done to the changing of the word `judgments’ to ordinances or justice. Even up to approximately 300 years ago, it was plainly understood.
We are not to confuse this `judgments’ with Gods wrath or anger. This word judgments has to do with Gods removing process of the fallen nature within us. So today most people do not read nor understand that it was common practice to walk through Gods judgments and even to ask for them. The New Testament disciples
understood this and the importance of them, so John while in prison wrote to the church on this matter reminding them of that which they were to do, and called them seals as this was how he was shown to write it. But by looking at each one, you see they are no different than that which is in the Old Testament.
We did a quick proof study that took all of about one half hour and found at least fourteen such references starting in Leviticus. I’m sure there are many more. Here are just a couple, and you can see how by one just reading the Bible, there are no questions raised in ones mind with the replaced word, but put it’s original in, and people may ask some questions, and those in the supposed know often cannot answer such.
Jeremiah 10:24, Correct me, O Lord, but with JUSTICE; not with Thine anger lest Thou bring me to nothing.
Jeremiah 10:24, O Lord, correct me, but with JUDGMENT; not in THINE anger, lest Thou bring me to nothing.
Ezek. 37:24, And My servant David will be King over them, and they will all have one shepherd; and they will WALK IN MY ORDINANCES and keep My statutes and observe them.
Ezek. 37:24, And David My servant shall be King over them; and they all shall have one shepherd; they shall also WALK IN MY JUDGMENTS, and observe My statutes, and do them.
Yes, they asked for this and walked and again shall walk in and through His judgments.
Remembering, these judgments are not to be confused with Gods anger or wrath or God judging those who receive not the love of Gods truth, as in 2 Thessalonians 2:10b-12, Because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. (either the initial salvation or ones continuing on in salvation for ones soul – MATT. 10:22, Matt. 24:13, Mark 13:13 – but it is the one who has endured (( remained – continued on)) to the end who will be saved). And for this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they might believe what is false, in order that all may be JUDGED who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness, (what is not conformable with justice, what ought not to be; unrighteousness) (2 Thessalonians 2:11,12).
For if that same Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He will also give life to your mortal bodies (Romans 8:11).
As this takes place in the secret places within you – your thinking and understanding starts to change and your actions, attitudes and behaviors, motives follow suit because of the strength and enlightened conscious mind. You have a sound mind
with great powers as you remove within your thinking and being the fallen soul realm, lower nature, animalistic nature, all that it, in itself, wants to create and claim as truth and reality but lines not up with reality and truth and life; otherwise remove all lies within.
This removal is as it says, cleanse yourselves! It is also picking up your own cross (dying to the false without and within), to follow Him. For the glory of God is true reality – walk in true reality and you will be walking in the glory of the Most High God, and in the Spirit.
