Jesus provides us with an amazing warning about the book of REVELATION.
“I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.” Revelation 22:18-19
There is no warning like this concerning any other book in the Bible. This should make us realise how important this book is particularly to those living in the days when the prophesied events in the Book of Revelation are being fulfilled.
1. DECEPTION BY FALSE MESSIAHS.
2. BLOODSHED, WARS & CHAOS.
3. FAMINE AND ECONOMIC COLLAPSE.
4. ABOMINATION AND DEATH
5. MARTYRDOM AND APOSTASY.
6. CELESTIAL SIGNS
7. RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH
Bible commentators have long recognised the amazing parallel between these six signs given in Matthew, Mark, and Luke and the Six Seals of Revelation 6. If the first six signs are the same then it can be assumed the seventh His return is as well. Four books of the Bible give these six signs.
The FOUR HORSEMEN OF THE APOCALYPSE
Each of the four horsemen lines up with the first four seals of Revelation 6. The key to understanding: Satan is the one sending them out to get the world to worship the Antichrist. God grants him authority for a specified time.
Rider of the white horse posing as Jesus, even with a crown – Jesus first warning is of false Christs and false prophets. Revelation 6:1-2
Rider of the red horse with sword. It says this rider takes peace from the earth – bloodshed, wars and chaos. Revelation 6:3-4
Rider of the black horse with a pair of scales. He states the cost of wheat and barley as exorbitant – famine and pestilence. Revelation 6:5-6
Rider of the sickly green horse is named death and hades and he was given power to kill a fourth of the earth including animals with sword, famine, and plague – abomination and death. Revelation 6:7-8
