Beginning of Sorrows
At the appropriate time, God will call for the opening of the little book locked with the seven seals, as mentioned in Revelation 5:1–14.
By the way, this process began at least one year ago throughout the world!
As God opens the first five seals found in Revelation chapter 6, the final components necessary for completing all prophetic visions and prophecies, those mentioned in the last two Edicts found in Daniel 9:24, are being put into action. This Biblical process recently started with the Beginning of Sorrows which must take place or be in the process thereof before the Tribulation Period of the Great Consummation can begin.
In God’s game-plan, each of the seven seals relates to the end of the Time of the Gentiles and completes an element/s of Christ’s Covenant with humanity. Those of us working at “This Side of the Whirlwind” have called this overall period the Latter-Days and or Great Consummation depending on when we are referring. The Latter-Days began in 1948 when Israel was restored as a nation (according to prophecies in Deuteronomy 30-31; Jeremiah 16:14-16 and 23:1-8; Hosea 3:4-5) and this after Israel was more than 1,800 years in exile. AS the Latter-Days began with Israel’s restoration so it the will end with the completion of the 3½ years of the Great Consummation.
Not long ago the first four seals were opened launching the Beginning of Sorrows, which as I’d just mentioned had to begin before the Great Consummation could take off.
By the end of the Tribulation Period the last two seals will be fulfilled, along with the last two edicts from Daniel 9:24 leading to the Wrath of God which must follow the Great Tribulation Period; this will be the end and close of the Church Age.
The opening of the seven seals (Beginning of Sorrows) releases a series of global measures intended to bring the Time of the Gentiles and the covenant of Jesus Christ to its consummation or full completion. The message serves a purpose which is fulfilled or completed during OUR generation… this last generation of the Body of Christ – – – those of us born since the Latter Days began in 1948.
The seven seals create an environment designed to challenge each Christian’s commitment to Christ during the Tribulation Period of the Great Consummation. Ultimately, the seals will create a CRUCIBLE by which the Bride of Christ (Christians) will find ourselves making ready the Bride for our Bridegroom (Jesus) in accordance with prophecy.
Another function the Seals serve is to gear the Secular World for their role in God’s Crucible for Christians… The Wheat to be separated from the Tares (Matthew 13:24-30). Continue reading
