The Fourth Seal (2015)


ebola-protectI have decided to continue my series on the Four Seals of Revelation Chapter 6 by updating the information to include the fourth seal.

We have no real proof of what that seal may be, as the bible does not (contrary to popular belief) say that the pale horse with Death and Hades is “plague”. It only speaks of “death” in various forms. Nonetheless, I thought it would be a good idea to look into current events to see how they might fit in to the sequence that has been unfolding since 1994.

As some of you will know, I differ from the traditional opinion, in believing we are already in the time of the opening of the seals of Revelation. Anyone curious about my viewpoint of the endtimes should have a good look around my Birthpangs website, and perhaps it would be useful to glance at this chart which accompanies my lengthy article on Revelation and Yom Kippur in the Temple.

In short, I do not hold to the conventional pre-seven-year rapture position. I am what you might call a “mid-seal rapturist”. Nonetheless I DO believe in the rapture of the Church! But in that context, I will dive straight into the subject at hand, the fourth seal.

Pope Francis: Visions, Prophecies and the Bible

2012 Thoughts and Omens


This past year of 2012 has been a strange and troublesome one for many.

Mourners gather to grieve loss of Sandy Hook victims

Even the usual merriment scheduled for the Christmas season was blighted by grief (Sandy Hook) and disaster (repeated flooding and gales in Europe and tornadoes and snow in the States ).

Not many months before, there was another “sandy” tragedy when that Hurricane devastated portions of the Caribbean and the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern United States during late October 2012.

Add to that the unusual weather all year – droughts, then floods – plus failing crops, continuing violence in the Middle East including the death of four Americans in Benghazi, and this year’s spike in annual epidemics…

What is God saying to us in recent events?


On 29th September 2008, a day which “just happened” to coincide with Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, the American stock markets plunged by 7 percent, or 777 points. (See the chart below, courtesy of Bigcharts.com).

A financial analyst explains what happened that day: “The House of Representatives rejected the governments $700 billion bailout plan that the Bush administration had renamed as the $700 billion rescue plan in an attempt to garner more votes. The actual vote of 228 NO against 205 YES shocked the proponents of the bill and sent the Stock markets into a FREE FALL which … sent the Dow Jones Industrial Averages into its WORST DAILY POINTS DECLINE of 777 points or 7%, beating the 721 point plunge on Sept 12th following the Sept 11th terrorist attack.”

This date was also significant to me, since I had already been observing a sequence of events unfolding, hidden from the view of almost everyone or so it seemed. Could we grasp that behind this earthly activity was the hand of God, and that He had actually foreknown and foretold these events? To those “with ears to hear” there were alarm bells ringing.

Before going on to speak of that, I will bring it bang up todate with yesterday’s news. As you see from the screen shot of a financial website below, significant numbers are again showing up in the form of a 5.55 drop in Dow Jones and a 6.66 drop in Standard & Poor (S&P) index at close of business last night.

In addition, the lowest ebb of the Stock Market following the 2008 crash was a 666 point low in 2009.  “On March 6th the S&P traded as low as 666. This was a new 12 year low and since then it has rallied higher by over 170 points, trading as high as 845.”

These numbers are NOT COINCIDENCE!

God is trying to get our attention I believe, and this strange number sequence started further back, in 1994 to be exact.

Following a long build-up taking decades of time in the churches of the world, the spirit of error finally found an open door in Toronto to enter the world fully-formed, ready to prepare the way for the final delusion. When that spirit found willing minds and bodies to possess, it loosed on the world what has become known as the “Toronto Blessing”, an impartation so strong that it has rendered men dumb, lame and blind and turned rational people into howling animals and screaming banshees.

This began at the Jewish New Year 1993 with events at the then little-known Toronto Airport pentecostal fellowship. By early 1994 a spirit arrived that turned the church upside down.

It was one of those watershed moments from which there is no turning back.

Below is a potted history extracted from a manuscript by Margaret M. Poloma from the University of Akron:

  • Pre 1987 – Claudio Friedzon, an Assemblies of God pastor in Argentina, was in the centre of [false] revival sweeping through parts of Latin America.
  • 1987 – Howard-Browne brought his “laughing revival” to the United States from South Africa and gives an “impartation of spiritual anointing” to Claudio Friedzon and many other well-known charismatic ministers including Kenneth Copeland, Karl Strader, Bud Williams, Oral Roberts, Charles and Frances Hunter, and Kenneth Hagin.
  • 1993 – November, Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship’s senior pastor John Arnott travelled to Argentina for a conference where he was prayed for by Claudio Friedzon and received an ‘anointing’. This resulted in a brief experience of some manifestations back at Toronto.
  • 1994 – January, Randy Clark (who received his “impartation” from Rodney Howard-Browne at Rhema Bible Church in Tulsa) spoke at the Toronto church and what resulted is now known as the ‘Toronto Blessing’ or ‘Father’s Blessing’.

At the time I suspected there was more meaning in this event than just another outbreak of false revival. As I studied and researched this intensely, seeing its forbears throughout history, I saw it as a major turning point in the steps this world was taking towards the End. It was the opening of a door and there would doubtless be other significant events to follow.

Sure enough, seven years later, in September 2001 the world had another watershed moment of history when decades of unrest, hatred and terrorism erupted in the 911 Twin Towers disaster.

Not until seven years later, in Sept/Oct 2008, was I totally sure that I was seeing something prophetic. But then the third event in the sequence occurred. In 2008 there was another watershed moment that changed the course of this world – a global financial crash and a recession from which we will never recover despite all the rhetoric they throw at us.

As I said at the beginning, the numbers involved were not coincidental because they were like flags waving, to alert anyone with spiritual understanding to listen and consider! This was not just a random event, but a SEQUENCE  that we had already been warned of:

  • First, a global delusion that increasingly clouds biblical truth and ensnares millions to a dominionist agenda.  And seven years later:
  • Second, a terrorist act releasing a spirit of violence that grips the world’s populations like never before. And seven years later:
  • Third, an economic crash that increasingly leaves poverty and want in its wake.

Where have we seen this sequence of events before? Of course the answer is in the Book of Revelation. As Jesus opens each successive seal on the scroll that eventually reveals the inheritance of Israel, he looses from Heaven a spirit-power that is sent to make preparation for judgement.

That being the case, we need to look at the NEXT seven-yearly event (if God does not shorten the time) which is the loosing of the spirit of death and hades. 2015.

By a timing of events that is, again, not a coincidence, the next seven-year event in the sequence will be marked by a set of four back-to-back eclipses (called a “tetrad”) happening exactly on the Jewish Feast Days! (The only other times this happened in the last century were at the birth of the nation of Israel and her War of Independence in 1948 and the Six Day war of 1967).

In 2014 and 2015 there will be 4 blood moon total lunar eclipses all falling on feast days. Also note that in 2015 there are 2 lunar and 2 solar eclipses ALL on significant days.

1. Passover, April 15, 2014
2. Tabernacles October 8, 2014
3. Passover, April 4, 2015
4. Tabernacles, September 28, 2015

There are also FIVE solar eclipses from 2008 to 2015 that align on significant dates.

1. Tamuz 29/Av 1: August 2, 2008 August 1, 2008 Total eclipse
2. Tamuz 29/Av 1: July 21-22, 2009 July 22, 2009 Total eclipse
3. Tamuz 29/Av 1: July 11-12, 2010 July 11, 2010 Total eclipse
4. Adar 29/Nisan 1 (Beginning of the religious calendar): March 20-21, 2015 Total eclipse
5. Rosh Hashanah: September 14, 2015; September 13, 2015 Partial eclipse

Putting two and two together, it seems that this period of time is highlighted in God’s calendar in more than one way. Since the other two tetrads had to do with an attack on Israel, will Israel again be plunged into a bloody war?

And  the fourth seal of Revelation finalises the four-horsemen part of that sequence. Thereafter we are looking at a short-lived but violent persecution followed by the appearance of the Lord in the Heavens and the Resurrection/Rapture!

All of these things need more than a blog entry to fully explore, but it’s about time I nailed my colours to the mast more firmly. I do not believe that what we are witnessing in society, in the skies, and in the earth is random or meaningless.

Let’s consider these things soberly and with an open mind!

Tell South Dakota to Prepare!


In the spirit of the age, (which is endless speculation about the signs of the times), I decided to make this map and tell you about the data within it. As you know, I have a habit of putting my tongue firmly in my cheek over these things.

Is there a serious point to be made – I don’t really know. The only really SERIOUS worry is that Christians fall into the trap that Jesus warned of. It was the very first warning he made when talking about the endtimes, that is, “Take heed that you are not deceived”.

Matt 24:4-14 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is NOT YET. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and THEN the end will come.

False prophets will abound (like Harold Camping) who will even seduce the elect, and every kitchen table prediction will take on deep meaning when people start to panic about the state of the world, and all the signs we daily see. The more that “lawlessness abounds” the more troubled people will be, and the more inclined to grasp at straws.

Yes, there ARE signs! But as far as I’m concerned all of them go on the back burner until I know something definite from God, and it lines up with scripture. For instance, the end cannot come until certain things happen, such as the greatest apostasy ever known, when “the love of many grows cold”.

2 Thess 2:2-4 “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first”

So then – curious earthquake facts:  three recent large earthquakes have struck around the “ring of fire” marking three points on a sort of rectangle on the map. Completing that rectangle with a fourth earthquake would point towards the centre of the United States.

As you see from the map (which is no more than a bit of fun with data really) if you calculate the coordinates then you end up with the 4th point being in South Dakota. The nearest town is Lemmon (so perhaps this data is a bit of a lemon as the Brits would say.)

Here’s another fact, if you count the days between the earthquakes so far it’s 188 days between the one in Chile and the one in Christchurch; and its 188 days between Christchurch and Japan – curious, eh?

So, now we can tell the good folks of South Dakota to expect another huge earthquake 188 days from the one in Japan, which is 15th September. Hmmm. There’s NEVER been an earthquake there so that makes it all the more certain I think. (joking.)

Finally let’s look at the names of the earthquake areas for another curiousity.

The first one in Chile was at Chillan (“where the sun sits”) and Concepcion both of which suggest a beginning; the second earthquake was at Christchurch, specifically a place called Charing Cross – which suggests a religious connection, Christ’s Church and “broken cross” or “bent cross” from ‘Cerring’, an Anglo-Saxon word meaning bend.

The third earthquake was near Sendai which has the meaning in Japanese of “eternity”, specifically a “thousand generations”.

The distance between each event was roughly five and a half to six thousand miles. So far then, in symbolic terms, we have had from the Beginning to Christ’s Church and from Christ’s Church to Eternity, six thousand years.

I’m tempted to say the next earthquake will be in Los Angeles (the angels) because that is what comes after eternity. It’s a distance from Sendai Japan of about 5331 miles.

Or maybe nothing will happen at all. More likely.

I will now add one more factoid to the mix. The next 188 days takes us up to Rosh Hashanah, the start of the next Jewish year. It also takes us to the full moon and the Autumn Equinox.

15th September 188 days since Japanese earthquake.
23rd Sep = full moon and equinox.
29th sep Rosh Hashanah, Jewish New Year

However, a significant and prophetic event (if it actually happens) is on 20th Sept when the Palestinians’ bid to join the UN as a sovereign nation, capital city East Jerusalem, is voted in the UN.

Everything these days is invested with great meaning. I’m not disbelieving nor disrespectful of signs if they are genuine, but I advise great caution until the truth is known.
