  • IT'S THE STORM OF GOD'S FINALJUDGMENT AGAINST THE EARTH.
  • 00:03:13.950 --> 00:03:20.356
  • AND THAT'S WHERE WE'VE COMEIN OUR STUDY OF REVELATION 6,
  • 00:03:20.390 --> 00:03:23.660
  • THE BEGINNING OF THE SEVENYEAR PERIOD OF JUDGMENT
  • 00:03:23.693 --> 00:03:27.196
  • IN WHICH GOD WILL POUR OUTHIS WRATH ON THE EARTH.
  • 00:03:27.230 --> 00:03:31.467
  • NOW YOU'VE HEARD ME SAY MANYTIMES, I'M CONVINCED THAT WE,
  • 00:03:31.501 --> 00:03:35.238
  • THE CHURCH, WILL NOT BEPRESENT TO EXPERIENCE
  • 00:03:35.271 --> 00:03:38.074
  • THAT STORM OF GOD'S JUDGMENT.
  • 00:03:38.107 --> 00:03:40.910
  • AND I'VE SHARED WITH YOUFOUR REASONS I BELIEVE THAT.
  • 00:03:40.943 --> 00:03:44.213
  • FIRST OF ALL, BECAUSEOF THE ABSENCE
  • 00:03:44.247 --> 00:03:46.149
  • OF THE CHURCH INREVELATION 6-18.
  • 00:03:46.182 --> 00:03:49.085
  • DURING THESE CHAPTERS THAT TALK
  • 00:03:49.118 --> 00:03:50.687
  • ABOUT THE STORM OFGOD'S JUDGMENT ON EARTH,
  • 00:03:50.720 --> 00:03:53.456
  • YOU DON'T FIND THE CHURCHMENTIONED ONE TIME,
  • 00:03:53.489 --> 00:03:56.192
  • BECAUSE THE CHURCH ISN'TON EARTH, IT IS IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:03:56.225 --> 00:03:59.262
  • SECONDLY, THE TEACHINGOF 1 THESSALONIANS 4-5.
  • 00:03:59.295 --> 00:04:05.268
  • CHRONOLOGICALLY,CHAPTER 4 DESCRIBES
  • 00:04:05.301 --> 00:04:07.036
  • THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:04:07.070 --> 00:04:08.504
  • THE LORD HIMSELF SHALL DESCENDFROM HEAVEN WITH A SHOUT,
  • 00:04:08.538 --> 00:04:11.974
  • WITH THE VOICE OF THE ARCHANGEL,
  • 00:04:12.008 --> 00:04:13.576
  • AND WITH THE TRUMPET OF GOD,
  • 00:04:13.609 --> 00:04:15.278
  • AND THE DEAD IN CHRISTSHALL RISE FIRST.
  • 00:04:15.311 --> 00:04:17.780
  • AND THEN WE WHO ARE ALIVEAT THAT TIME AND REMAIN
  • 00:04:17.814 --> 00:04:20.483
  • SHALL BE CAUGHT UP,HARPAZO, RAPTURED
  • 00:04:20.516 --> 00:04:23.686
  • TO MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR,
  • 00:04:23.720 --> 00:04:25.088
  • AND THUS, WE WILLALWAYS BE WITH THE LORD.
  • 00:04:25.121 --> 00:04:27.457
  • AND THEN HE GOES INTO THENEXT TOPIC, CHAPTER 5,
  • 00:04:27.490 --> 00:04:30.760
  • "BUT BRETHREN CONCERNINGTHE DAY OF THE LORD,"
  • 00:04:30.793 --> 00:04:34.931
  • HE SAYS I'M GONNASWITCH TOPICS NOW
  • 00:04:34.964 --> 00:04:37.066
  • AND TALK ABOUT THEDAY OF THE LORD,
  • 00:04:37.100 --> 00:04:39.235
  • THAT'S ALWAYS THEDAY OF JUDGMENT.
  • 00:04:39.268 --> 00:04:41.404
  • THE DAY OF THE LORD FOLLOWSTHE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:04:41.437 --> 00:04:46.008
  • AND THEN FINALLY, THE PURPOSEOF THE TRIBULATION ITSELF
  • 00:04:46.042 --> 00:04:49.679
  • ARGUES FOR THEABSENCE OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:04:49.712 --> 00:04:52.448
  • WHY MUST GOD POUR OUTHIS WRATH ON THE EARTH?
  • 00:04:52.482 --> 00:04:55.818
  • FOR TWO REASONS, FIRST OF ALL,THE SALVATION OF THE ELECT.
  • 00:04:55.852 --> 00:04:59.422
  • AS WE'LL SEE NEXT TIME, THEREARE GONNA BE A MULTITUDE
  • 00:04:59.455 --> 00:05:01.891
  • OF PEOPLE SAVED DURINGTHE TRIBULATION.
  • 00:05:01.924 --> 00:05:04.327
  • YOU SEE GOD'S MERCYTHROUGH HIS JUDGMENT.
  • 00:05:04.360 --> 00:05:07.764
  • AND THEN SECONDLY, THECONDEMNATION OF THE LOST.
  • 00:05:07.797 --> 00:05:10.833
  • GOD'S JUSTICE DEMANDSTHAT HE POUR OUT HIS WRATH
  • 00:05:10.867 --> 00:05:14.604
  • ON A REBELLIOUS WORLD.
  • 00:05:14.637 --> 00:05:16.906
  • NEITHER OF THOSE PURPOSESAPPLIES TO THE CHURCH.
  • 00:05:16.939 --> 00:05:20.510
  • THE FACT IS WE DON'T NEED TOBE SAVED, WE'RE ALREADY SAVED.
  • 00:05:20.543 --> 00:05:24.180
  • AND SECONDLY, WECERTAINLY DON'T HAVE
  • 00:05:24.213 --> 00:05:25.982
  • TO FEAR GOD'S CONDEMNATION.
  • 00:05:26.015 --> 00:05:28.217
  • ROMANS 8:1 SAYS,"THERE IS THEREFORE NOW
  • 00:05:28.251 --> 00:05:31.087
  • NO CONDEMNATION AWAITING THOSEWHO BELONG TO CHRIST JESUS."
  • 00:05:31.120 --> 00:05:37.527
  • THAT'S WHY I'M CONVINCEDTHE CHURCH IS NOT PRESENT.
  • 00:05:37.560 --> 00:05:40.363
  • WHEN WE COME TO REVELATION 6,WE COME NOW TO THESE FIRST
  • 00:05:40.396 --> 00:05:44.600
  • OF THREE JUDGMENTS DURING THESEVEN YEAR PERIOD OF TIME.
  • 00:05:44.634 --> 00:05:48.237
  • YOU HAVE THE SEALJUDGMENTS IN CHAPTER 6,
  • 00:05:48.271 --> 00:05:51.140
  • THE TRUMPET JUDGMENT INCHAPTERS 8 AND 9,
  • 00:05:51.174 --> 00:05:53.943
  • AND THE BOWL JUDGMENTSIN CHAPTER 16.
  • 00:05:53.976 --> 00:05:57.880
  • THIS IS THE SEALJUDGMENTS IN REVELATION 6.
  • 00:05:57.914 --> 00:06:01.584
  • NOW THERE'S SOME DEBATEAMONG BIBLE SCHOLARS
  • 00:06:01.617 --> 00:06:03.786
  • AT WHAT IN THETRIBULATION THESE OCCUR.
  • 00:06:03.820 --> 00:06:06.989
  • IS IT THE FIRST 3 1/2 YEARS,OR IS IT THE FINAL 3 1/2 YEARS?
  • 00:06:07.023 --> 00:06:11.461
  • WE CAN'T BE DOGMATIC ABOUT IT.
  • 00:06:11.494 --> 00:06:13.396
  • BUT WHAT IS INTERESTING ISHOW THESE SEAL JUDGMENTS
  • 00:06:13.429 --> 00:06:17.567
  • WE'RE GONNA LOOK AT FORTHE NEXT FEW MOMENTS
  • 00:06:17.600 --> 00:06:19.535
  • CORRESPOND TO WHAT JESUS TOLDHIS DISCIPLES IN MATTHEW 24.
  • 00:06:19.569 --> 00:06:25.541
  • WE CALL IT THE OLIVET DISCOURSE.
  • 00:06:25.575 --> 00:06:28.377
  • JESUS DOESN'T WANT US TO BEIGNORANT ABOUT THE END TIMES.
  • 00:06:28.411 --> 00:06:31.314
  • AND HE GIVES A VERYDETAILED EXPLANATION
  • 00:06:31.347 --> 00:06:33.783
  • OF WHAT WILL LEAD TO HISRETURN. HE TALKS ABOUT
  • 00:06:33.816 --> 00:06:37.086
  • THE FALSE MESSIAHS, WARSAND RUMORS OF WARS,
  • 00:06:37.119 --> 00:06:39.889
  • FAMINE, DEATH, MARTYRDOM,AND THESE LINE UP EXACTLY
  • 00:06:39.922 --> 00:06:43.893
  • WITH THE SEVEN SEALED JUDGMENTSWE SEE IN REVELATION 6.
  • 00:06:43.926 --> 00:06:50.132
  • NOW REMEMBER, JOHNIS WATCHING THIS.
  • 00:06:50.166 --> 00:06:52.735
  • HE HAS BEEN RAPTUREDTEMPORARILY TO HEAVEN,
  • 00:06:52.768 --> 00:06:56.906
  • WHERE HE'S ABLE TO SEEWHAT IS HAPPENING IN HEAVEN
  • 00:06:56.939 --> 00:07:00.643
  • AS WELL AS WHAT ISHAPPENING ON EARTH.
  • 00:07:00.676 --> 00:07:04.013
  • AND WHAT HE SEES, LISTENTO THIS, IS A CONNECTION
  • 00:07:04.046 --> 00:07:07.283
  • BETWEEN THE COMMANDS OF HEAVEN
  • 00:07:07.316 --> 00:07:09.485
  • AND THE CONSEQUENCESTHAT OCCUR ON EARTH.
  • 00:07:09.519 --> 00:07:12.855
  • EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS,HAPPENS ACCORDING TO GOD'S PLAN.
  • 00:07:12.889 --> 00:07:17.493
  • HEAVEN RULES ON EARTH.
  • 00:07:17.527 --> 00:07:20.296
  • AND THAT'S WHAT WE SEEOVER AND OVER AGAIN.
  • 00:07:20.329 --> 00:07:23.132
  • LOOK AT VERSES 1 AND 2.
  • 00:07:23.165 --> 00:07:24.634
  • "THEN I SAW WHEN THE LAMB"REMEMBER JESUS THE LAMB
  • 00:07:24.667 --> 00:07:27.770
  • HAS THAT SEVEN SEALED SCROLL
  • 00:07:27.803 --> 00:07:30.172
  • THAT CONTAINS THE FINALJUDGMENTS AGAINST THE EARTH.
  • 00:07:30.206 --> 00:07:33.175
  • "AND THEN WHEN I SAW THE LAMBBREAK ONE OF THE SEVEN SEALS,
  • 00:07:33.209 --> 00:07:37.647
  • I HEARD ONE OF THEFOUR LIVING CREATURES."
  • 00:07:37.680 --> 00:07:39.782
  • REMEMBER THAT'SONE OF THE ANGELS,
  • 00:07:39.815 --> 00:07:41.450
  • "SAYING WITH A LOUDVOICE OF THUNDER, 'COME,'
  • 00:07:41.484 --> 00:07:45.087

  • AND HIM WHO SATUP ON IT HAD A BOW
  • 00:07:48.891 --> 00:07:52.728
  • AND A CROWN WAS GIVEN TO HIM
  • 00:07:52.762 --> 00:07:55.097
  • AND HE WENT OUT CONQUERINGAND TO CONQUER."
  • 00:07:55.131 --> 00:07:58.968
  • A HORSE WAS AWAR MACHINE
  • 00:07:59.001 --> 00:08:01.737
  • THE RIDER OF THIS WHITE HORSE,I BELIEVE, IS THE ANTICHRIST.
  • 00:08:01.771 --> 00:08:06.342
  • THIS IS THE BEGINNING OFTHE SEVEN YEAR PERIOD,
  • 00:08:06.375 --> 00:08:08.978
  • THE REIGN OF THE ANTICHRIST.

  • AGAIN, HE'S WEARINGTHE VICTOR'S CROWN.
  • 00:08:11.547 --> 00:08:15.017
  • HE HAS A BOW WITHOUTANY ARROWS IN IT.
  • 00:08:15.051 --> 00:08:19.989
  • AND HE IS GIVEN THISCROWN, THIS RIGHT TO RULE,
  • 00:08:20.022 --> 00:08:23.426
  • THE RIGHT TO CONQUER,AND TO GO OUT CONQUERING.
  • 00:08:23.459 --> 00:08:27.196
  • NOW THE QUESTION IS WHOGIVES HIM THAT CROWN
  • 00:08:27.229 --> 00:08:29.899
  • THAT ALLOWS HIM TOREIGN OVER THE WORLD.
  • 00:08:29.932 --> 00:08:33.269
  • WHO GIVES HIM PERMISSION
  • 00:08:33.302 --> 00:08:35.004
  • TO DO THE TERRIBLETHINGS HE IS GOING TO DO?
  • 00:08:35.037 --> 00:08:39.342
  • ANYBODY WANT TOANSWER THAT QUESTION?
  • 00:08:39.375 --> 00:08:41.577
  • THERE'S ONLY ONE PERSONWHO HAS THE AUTHORITY
  • 00:08:41.611 --> 00:08:43.613
  • TO GIVE SUCH POWER ANDABILITY AND IT'S GOD HIMSELF.
  • 00:08:43.646 --> 00:08:50.019
  • GOD'S THE ONE WHO GIVES THEANTICHRIST THE AUTHORITY
  • 00:08:50.052 --> 00:08:53.522
  • TO RULE OVER THE EARTH.
  • 00:08:53.556 --> 00:08:55.524
  • THAT SHOULDN'T SURPRISE US.
  • 00:08:55.558 --> 00:08:57.126
  • ROMANS 13 SAYS, "THEREIS NO GOVERNING AUTHORITY
  • 00:08:57.159 --> 00:09:01.530
  • THAT HAS NOT BEENESTABLISHED BY GOD."
  • 00:09:01.564 --> 00:09:06.068
  • WE ALWAYS DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY,
  • 00:09:06.102 --> 00:09:08.270
  • BUT THERE IS NO HUMANAUTHORITY ON THIS PLANET
  • 00:09:08.304 --> 00:09:11.574
  • THAT DOES NOT EXIST, BUTBY GOD'S ULTIMATE PLAN.
  • 00:09:11.607 --> 00:09:18.014
  • DANIEL 2 SAYS GOD IS THEONE WHO ESTABLISHES KINGS
  • 00:09:18.047 --> 00:09:22.652
  • AND WHO REMOVES KINGS.
  • 00:09:22.685 --> 00:09:25.488
  • THERE IS NOAUTHORITY THAT EXISTS
  • 00:09:25.521 --> 00:09:28.391
  • THAT ISN'T ESTABLISHED BY GOD.
  • 00:09:28.424 --> 00:09:31.494
  • HE HAS A PURPOSETHAT HE'S WORKING OUT
  • 00:09:31.527 --> 00:09:33.429
  • AND HE WILL BE THE ONETO GIVE THE ANTICHRIST
  • 00:09:33.462 --> 00:09:36.265
  • THIS FINAL AUTHORITYOVER THE EARTH.
  • 00:09:36.298 --> 00:09:39.101
  • AND NOTICE, HE WILL DOIT WITHOUT ANY BLOODSHED.
  • 00:09:39.135 --> 00:09:42.104
  • HE ASSUMES POWER WITHOUTANY BLOODSHED AT ALL,
  • 00:09:42.138 --> 00:09:46.175
  • THE BOW WITHOUT THE ARROWS.
  • 00:09:46.208 --> 00:09:48.411
  • WE UNDERSTAND THAT AFTERWE LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENS
  • 00:09:48.444 --> 00:09:51.514
  • IN THE RAPTURE, THERE'LLBE SUCH CHAOS IN THE WORLD
  • 00:09:51.547 --> 00:09:54.183
  • AFTER MILLIONS OF CHRISTIANSARE TAKEN FROM THIS PLANET,
  • 00:09:54.216 --> 00:09:57.153
  • THE WORLD WILL BEG FOR SOMEBODY
  • 00:09:57.186 --> 00:09:59.155
  • TO BRING ORDER OUT OF CHAOS.
  • 00:09:59.188 --> 00:10:01.490
  • AND THAT'S WHY1 THESSALONIANS 5:3 SAYS,
  • 00:10:01.524 --> 00:10:03.859
  • "WHILE PEOPLE ARE SAYING,'PEACE AND SAFETY,'
  • 00:10:03.893 --> 00:10:06.629
  • THEN DESTRUCTIONWILL COME UPON THEM."
  • 00:10:06.662 --> 00:10:08.631
  • HE WILL BE THE PEACE CANDIDATE,
  • 00:10:08.664 --> 00:10:10.399
  • THE ONE WHO PROMISESTO BRING PEACE.
  • 00:10:10.433 --> 00:10:13.736
  • THAT IS THE BEGINNINGOF THE TRIBULATION,
  • 00:10:13.769 --> 00:10:16.906
  • THE RISE OF THE ANTICHRIST.
  • 00:10:16.939 --> 00:10:19.575
  • THE SECOND SEAL THEN IS BROKEN,WHICH REPRESENTS WARFARE.
  • 00:10:19.608 --> 00:10:23.512
  • LOOK AT VERSES 3 AND 4,
  • 00:10:23.546 --> 00:10:25.314
  • "WHEN HE BROKE THE SECOND SEAL,
  • 00:10:25.347 --> 00:10:27.149
  • I HEARD THE SECOND LIVINGCREATURE SAYING, 'COME,"
  • 00:10:27.183 --> 00:10:31.053
  • AND ANOTHER RED HORSE WENT OUTAND TO HIM WHO SAT UPON IT,
  • 00:10:31.087 --> 00:10:35.157
  • IT WAS GRANTED TO TAKEPEACE FROM THE EARTH
  • 00:10:35.191 --> 00:10:37.693
  • AND THAT MEN WOULDSLAY ONE ANOTHER,
  • 00:10:37.727 --> 00:10:39.895
  • AND A GREAT SWORDWAS GIVEN TO HIM."
  • 00:10:39.929 --> 00:10:42.631
  • AND MY OWN PERSONALBELIEF IS IT'S ALL,
  • 00:10:42.665 --> 00:10:45.768
  • ALL FOUR OF THESE HORSES ARERIDDEN BY THE SAME RIDER.
  • 00:10:45.801 --> 00:10:49.305
  • IT'S THE ANTICHRIST WHO ISMOUNTING A DIFFERENT HORSE
  • 00:10:49.338 --> 00:10:52.575
  • TO BRING A DIFFERENT JUDGMENT.
  • 00:10:52.608 --> 00:10:54.643
  • IN THIS CASE HE ISBRINGING WARFARE.
  • 00:10:54.677 --> 00:10:57.947
  • HE'S TAKING PEACEFROM THE EARTH.
  • 00:10:57.980 --> 00:11:00.683
  • THERE IS NOT JUST ONE WAR,THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON,
  • 00:11:00.716 --> 00:11:03.586
  • THERE WILL BE A SERIES OF WARS.
  • 00:11:03.619 --> 00:11:05.221
  • JESUS SAID WARSAND RUMORS OF WARS,
  • 00:11:05.254 --> 00:11:09.658
  • AND WITH THOSE WARS WILL COMEGREAT, GREAT DESTRUCTION.
  • 00:11:09.692 --> 00:11:15.397
  • WARFARE IS INEVITABLE
  • 00:11:15.431 --> 00:11:17.433
  • AND THERE'S NOTHINGYOU CAN DO TO STOP IT.
  • 00:11:17.466 --> 00:11:19.935
  • NOW I BELIEVE WE HAVEA RESPONSIBILITY,
  • 00:11:19.969 --> 00:11:22.938
  • EVERY LEADER HASA RESPONSIBILITY,
  • 00:11:22.972 --> 00:11:24.774
  • TO BRING PEACEWHEREVER IT'S POSSIBLE,
  • 00:11:24.807 --> 00:11:27.276
  • WAR IS INEVITABLE.
  • 00:11:27.309 --> 00:11:29.044
  • THERE WILL BE NO LASTINGPEACE IN THIS WORLD
  • 00:11:29.078 --> 00:11:31.981
  • UNTIL THE PRINCEOF PEACE RETURNS.
  • 00:11:32.014 --> 00:11:35.084
  • THE THIRD SEAL, THE THIRDSEAL JUDGMENT IS FAMINE.
  • 00:11:35.117 --> 00:11:39.188
  • LOOK AT VERSES 5 AND 6,"AND HE BROKE THE THIRD SEAL,
  • 00:11:39.221 --> 00:11:43.225
  • AND I HEARD THE THIRDLIVING CREATURE SAY, 'COME.'
  • 00:11:43.259 --> 00:11:46.128
  • I LOOKED AND BEHOLD, A BLACKHORSE REPRESENTING FAMINE,
  • 00:11:46.162 --> 00:11:50.232
  • AND HE WHO SAT UPON IT HAD APAIR OF SCALES IN HIS HAND.
  • 00:11:50.266 --> 00:11:54.837
  • AND I HEARD SOMETHINGLIKE A VOICE
  • 00:11:54.870 --> 00:11:57.206
  • IN THE CENTER OF THEFOUR LIVING CREATURES
  • 00:11:57.239 --> 00:11:59.008
  • SAYING, 'A QUART OFWHEAT FOR A DENARIUS
  • 00:11:59.041 --> 00:12:02.077
  • AND THREE QUARTS OFBARLEY FOR A DENARIUS,
  • 00:12:02.111 --> 00:12:04.880

  • WHAT IN THE WORLDIS THAT ALL ABOUT?
  • 00:12:07.583 --> 00:12:10.452
  • FAMINE IS ALWAYSTHE RESULT OF WAR.
  • 00:12:10.486 --> 00:12:13.923
  • AND WITH FAMINECOMES HYPERINFLATION
  • 00:12:13.956 --> 00:12:17.693
  • AND A DESTRUCTION OFTHE ECONOMIC SYSTEM,
  • 00:12:17.726 --> 00:12:20.529
  • AND THAT'S WHATYOU'RE GOING TO SEE
  • 00:12:20.563 --> 00:12:22.264
  • DURING THE GREAT TRIBULATION.
  • 00:12:22.298 --> 00:12:24.934
  • YOU'RE GONNA SEE A GREAT FAMINE.
  • 00:12:24.967 --> 00:12:26.936
  • AND YOU'RE GOING TO SEESKY-HIGH INFLATION.
  • 00:12:26.969 --> 00:12:29.972
  • AND INTERESTINGLY, HE SAYS,"DON'T DAMAGE THE OIL OR WINE."
  • 00:12:30.005 --> 00:12:34.076
  • SEE THOSE WERELUXURIES IN JOHN'S DAY
  • 00:12:34.109 --> 00:12:37.413
  • AND GOD IS SAYING, PURPOSEFULLY,
  • 00:12:37.446 --> 00:12:40.983
  • "GO AHEAD AND LET THELUXURY ITEMS EXIST
  • 00:12:41.016 --> 00:12:44.987
  • ALONGSIDE THE COMMON ELEMENTS,
  • 00:12:45.020 --> 00:12:47.022
  • BECAUSE THERE'LL WILL ALWAYSBE PEOPLE WHO CAN AFFORD
  • 00:12:47.056 --> 00:12:49.458
  • THE BETTER THINGS, AND THATALWAYS CAUSES SOCIAL UNREST."
  • 00:12:49.491 --> 00:12:54.163
  • AND THAT'S WHY THIS RIDER ONTHIS HORSE, THE ANTICHRIST,
  • 00:12:54.196 --> 00:12:57.199
  • HAS SCALES IN HIS HANDS,HE'S GONNA BALANCE OUT
  • 00:12:57.233 --> 00:13:01.003
  • THE ECONOMIC SYSTEMTHROUGH SOCIALISM.
  • 00:13:01.036 --> 00:13:07.343
  • BUT LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,THAT NEVER WORKS EITHER.
  • 00:13:07.376 --> 00:13:09.478
  • IF YOU WANT TO MAKE SURETHAT ONLY A FEW HAVE MONEY,
  • 00:13:09.511 --> 00:13:13.582
  • GO TO A SOCIALIST STRUCTURE,IT ALWAYS HAPPENS.
  • 00:13:13.616 --> 00:13:16.752
  • IT EVEN FURTHER LIMITS THENUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE
  • 00:13:16.785 --> 00:13:19.455
  • AND INCREASESTHOSE WHO HAVE NOT.
  • 00:13:19.488 --> 00:13:22.057
  • THE ANTICHRIST SAYS, "IWILL CONTROL WHO BUYS
  • 00:13:22.091 --> 00:13:25.661
  • AND WHO ISN'T ABLE TO BUY."
  • 00:13:25.694 --> 00:13:27.763
  • AND THAT IS GOING TO BE AJUDGMENT AGAINST THE EARTH.
  • 00:13:27.796 --> 00:13:30.532
  • YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE FAMINE INTHESE LAST DAYS UPON THE EARTH.
  • 00:13:30.566 --> 00:13:34.403
  • WE SEE THE CORRUPTIONOF THE ECONOMY.
  • 00:13:34.436 --> 00:13:36.739
  • THE FOURTH SEAL THATIS UNLEASHED IS DEATH.
  • 00:13:36.772 --> 00:13:39.441
  • LOOK AT VERSES 7 AND 8.
  • 00:13:39.475 --> 00:13:41.010
  • "WHEN THE LAMB BROKETHE FOURTH SEAL,

  • THAT IS USED TO LOP OFF HEADS.
  • 00:14:52.648 --> 00:14:55.617

  • OF DEATH THAT WILL ACCOUNTFOR MILLIONS OF DEATHS.
  • 00:15:00.289 --> 00:15:02.891
  • IT COULD BE NUCLEAR EXCHANGESBETWEEN NATIONS, PERHAPS,

  • WHEN THE KINGS OF THE EARTHLOOK UP AND SEE THE LAMB OF GOD,

  • BUT INSTEAD OF SAYING THAT,THEIR HEARTS ARE SO HARDENED,
  • 00:20:41.730 --> 00:20:45.434
  • THEY START PRAYING TO THE ROCKS.
  • 00:20:45.467 --> 00:20:48.103
