The Fourth Seal & Dominion
A Covenant with Death & Hell
1 Seal per Year?
When are the Seals released?
2 Baruch: Judgements merging?
When are the 144,000 Sealed?
lift up thy voice like a trumpet,
and shew my people their transgression,
and the house of Jacob their sins.
The Fourth Seal is the middle or central Seal of the seven Seal judgements. The Fourth Seal corresponds to the fourth day of creation, to the Sun, Moon & Stars. By extension it corresponds to Joseph’s dream of the same. This is a time when much of Joseph and Israel (and humanity) have become dross, they have waxed fat like bulls and ‘Jeshurun‘ has kicked against their Maker. The iniquity of Ephraim may be bound up but the ‘drunkards of Ephraim‘ shall be trodden under foot, Isaiah 28. Birthpangs are coming on strong now but there is hope!
12 The iniquity of Ephraim is bound up; his sin is hid.
13 The sorrows of a travailing woman shall come upon him: he is an unwise son; for he should not stay long in the place of the breaking forth of children.
Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.
The fourth seal aligns with Pentecost, the fourth feast. A child shall be born amidst death. The fourth Seal aligns with the fourth church, Thyatira. This church had a witch called Jezebel calling the shots. But it also had the most masculine overcomers that will rule the nations with a ‘rod of iron‘ just like Yeshua. A marriage is coming but why is Yeshua, who opens the Seals, releasing Death?
It is not until the fourth seal that people know what time it is! The word translated ‘Pale‘ is the Greek word χλωρος, chloros which means ‘pale green‘. The Pale horse of Death is coming, the Lord keeps his Covenant, and the faces of the people shall ‘turn into paleness‘ (יֵרָקֽוֹן, from a Hebrew root יֵרָקֽ meaning green). So we are told from the old testament here that they are ‘turn into paleness‘ while in the new testament it talks about the ‘pale horse‘ in Revelation 6:7-8. So these two link together. It is the same event.
6 Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child?
wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins,
as a woman in travail,
and all faces are turned into paleness (יֵרָקֽוֹן)?
7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it:
it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble;
but he shall be saved out of it.
Who hath heard such a thing?
who hath seen such things?
Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day?
or shall a nation be born at once?
for as soon as Zion travailed,
she brought forth her children.
We are coming into a time where all the accumulating judgements of escalating persecution, plagues, wars, economic collapse and natural disasters bring about the perfect storm causing widespread death on a scale we have not seen before. We are already seeing death coming from the needle and this is about to dramatically increase. What hope do we have? That is really up to us. We are at the end of the ‘church age‘ and the Lord is bringing both blessing and cursing in accordance with the Covenant.
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you,
that I have set before you life and death,
blessing and cursing:
therefore choose life,
that both thou and thy seed may live:
Set me as a seal upon thine heart,
as a seal upon thine arm:
for love is strong as death;
jealousy is cruel as the grave:
the coals thereof are coals of fire,
which hath a most vehement flame.
Song of Solomon 8:6
There is a live birth coming in a time of death and travail. Love is about to begin the process of sealing those that belong to God in a time of death. The 144,000 are first to be sealed and then all of Zion. The sealing occurs during the feasts. Three times a year the males are to appear before the Lord, during Unleavened Bread, Pentecost & Tabernacles, Exodus 23:17, Deuteronomy 16:16. They are not to appear before the Lord empty, which reminds me of the parable of the talents, they are to use the talent to get more for their Lord, more souls. And this would appear to correspond with the ‘three watches‘ where the Lord sends forth his servants, Luke 12:38. They are to harvest for the Good Master. There is a harvest of both life and death coming and it’s about to begin in earnest.
As our world darkens and death begins to stalk the human race, the Lord is about to commission his 144,000 to preach the gospel of the Kingdom and to bring the remnant of Zion (the church of the firstborn) through a harrowing time. Death is coming to many. The bible tells us the following.
But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul:
all they that hate me love death.
According to Deuteronomy we are about to be judged. He has already warned us.
22 So that the generation to come of your children that shall rise up after you, and the stranger that shall come from a far land, shall say, when they see the plagues of that land, and the sicknesses which the LORD hath laid upon it;
23 And that the whole land thereof is brimstone, and salt, and burning, that it is not sown, nor beareth, nor any grass groweth therein, like the overthrow of Sodom, and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, which the LORD overthrew in his anger, and in his wrath:
And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
II Peter 2:6
Wherefore glorify ye the LORD in the fires, even the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea.
Our Sodomitish nations will soon be burning. But before that they shall be visited by Death. The true faithful remnant will come together in that time of darkness and be the only source of light in a dying world.
The Fourth Seal & Dominion
We are currently in exile, our nations are not the ultimate ‘promised land‘. Our nations are being judged now. All the nations that Israel dwells in shall be destroyed.
Fear thou not, O Jacob my servant, saith the LORD: for I am with thee; for I will make a full end of all the nations whither I have driven thee: but I will not make a full end of thee, but correct thee in measure; yet will I not leave thee wholly unpunished.
But what do we do if we are trying to obey the Lord even though our nations have become wicked? What happens when there is a group of Israelites or gentile believers that are obeying God in the last days but they dwell amongst the disobedient? The Lord promises never to leave us or forsake us. He will cause the righteous to shine in these dark and evil days, Isaiah 60:1. The woman of Revelation 12 is in mortal danger and in pain but she is shining. Satan can’t get her or her seed. That seed is the 144,000 manchild firstfruits that is resurrected/raptured. Then there is the 2nd exodus from America and elsewhere as has been copiously blogged about previously.
The Lord gave Adam and Eve dominion, Genesis 1:26-28. However their perfect rule over creation was rudely interrupted by the serpent and they were banished from Paradise. Now Death reigned in Adam’s fallen race.
The fourth Horseman’s name is ‘Death‘. He is not the sort of fellow you want knocking on your door. But he is a persistent chap. Let’s read what Revelation has to say.
7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
The fourth seal only affects a quarter of the earth. There are still places free from death. A quarter of the earth’s population is killed, about 2 billion people are dead within a year. Three quarters of the population are still alive. The Fourth Seal of the Apocalypse is part of the curses of Deuteronomy 28. There is a price for disobedience and ultimately that price is death.
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
I Corinthians 15:26
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:
I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
The fourth horseman is bringing the wages for disobedience. God’s patience has come to an end. Besides, he has a wedding planned.
Sadly during this time there will also be people that are killed that do truly believe with saving faith. There are martyrs. But they will not hurt by the second death, eternal damnation. We must remember though who is in control, the Lord. He opens the Seals. We need to humble ourselves.
But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear:
Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell;
yea, I say unto you, Fear him.
Seek ye the LORD,
all ye meek of the earth,
which have wrought his judgment;
it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger.
For thus saith the LORD unto the house of Israel, Seek ye me, and ye shall live:
If we want our dominion over the earth back then we have to get out of the power of Satan by walking in obedience.
For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
Another interesting point is that the Lord warns this same church that He will kill her children with ‘Death’ because they allow Jezebel to teach. So the fourth church, Thyatira doubly relates to the fourth seal.
And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.
So this church has those that rule with a rod of iron and those that are killed with death. So this doubly links us also to the fourth seal which is death. God is cleaning house. If ‘Death‘ visits America and the world from September 2023 then the manchild that rules with a ‘rod of iron‘ shall begin to rise also.
4th seal = 4th church = rod of iron = Manchild = 144,000 = Seed that has dominion of the earth.
A Covenant with Death & Hell
3 Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth: for every one that stealeth shall be cut off as on this side according to it; and every one that sweareth shall be cut off as on that side according to it.
4 I will bring it forth, saith the LORD of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof.
This curse is related to the ‘Covenant with Death‘ that is declared by the ‘drunkards of Ephraim‘ and Jerusalem as Isaiah 28 makes clear. The white horse subdues the earth without even having arrows in it’s quiver. It is white, it takes over peacefully. The rider has a crown. Yeshua is sending the rider to Ephraim and Jerusalem and the whole earth because they have forsaken Him and made a ‘Covenant with Death‘.
15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.
Yeshua warned us that if the salt looses it’s savour it will be cast out and trodden down.
Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
Most people are so blind that they don’t even realise that we are living in the time where this prophecy is being fulfilled!
1 Seal per Year?
In December 2020 the mRNA Covid-19 death shot vaccines started to be pumped into the blood of mankind, defiling the human race with a transhumanist nightmare. The Hebrew years begin in about September in terms of calculating judgements and jubilees. So into 2021 the vaccinations were pushed hard and people were threatened with losing their job if they didn’t let the government shoot them up.
While vaccinations were still in progress a year later in 2022 the war in Ukraine began to be stirred up noticeably. Here is the Red horse. World war 3 did not break out but the seeds of it were planted and it has only gotten worse. Now NATO is throwing in weapons and mercenaries and others are fighting a proxy war with Russia and it is being stoked to bring about WW3.
In 2023 we began to see a war on food production and banks began to fail. Although we are still eating, the cost of living has gone up and up and many are struggling. Here is the beginning of the Black horse with scales in its hands beginning to ride with economic scarcity. People are spending much more simply to put food on the table.
The horses are riding and slowly the judgements are piling up and gaining strength.
So if the trend continues we should see the fourth seal released this September and death will be stalking. The seal ramps up over the course of the year and continue after the year they begin at least until all 6 seals are completed. Many of those that took the first seal covid death shots will die at a much faster rate in the fourth seal. The War in Ukraine and elsewhere will escalate. The economy will crash harder and harder. The vaccines will again be pushed amidst far deadlier diseases. And we should begin to see larger and larger earthquakes.
Below is a diagram of what could be happening. We are easing into the tribulation without many people really being aware of it, because the seals are released and the judgements start off small and gather pace over time. The Antichrist will appear during a time of war according to Daniel 11. I suspect that to many in the world he will appear as Mr Fix it. I believe we are on the cusp of all of these judgements coming together as the perfect storm. We shall soon be keenly aware that we are living in the times of the birthpangs that Yeshua warned us of in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21.
When are the Seals released?
So the day of Atonement brings judgement. Sabbatical years and Jubilees are calculated in the 7th month. The Jubilee trumpet is blown once every 50 years during the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur). Read Leviticus 25 for details. A Jubilee can bring judgement if we have done evil and will also bring the day of the ‘vengeance‘ of our God, Isaiah 61:1-2, as I discussed in the previous blog.
The reason that there are 7 seals leading up to the marriage of the Lamb is because the Lord must judge His people in righteousness before He marries a spotless bride. Indeed the tribulation helps to get her spotless and shining. Yeshua as high priest and groom must give her bitter waters to drink if He suspects her of adultery, Numbers 5:18. Those that say ‘it can’t happen to me because I’m and American‘ or that are have the attitude of saying in their heart ‘I am a Queen and I can’t be touched‘ should watch out. We all fail in many ways. We need to be humble. Yeshua sees our hearts better than we do. He ‘searcheth the reins and hearts’, Revelation 2:23.
Let’s first read from 2nd Baruch which sheds some light on what is coming and how it comes.
2 Baruch: Judgements merging?
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
27.1 And he answered and said to me:
“That time is divided into twelve parts,
and each part is reserved for its appointed task:
2 “In the first part,
there shall be the beginning of commotions.
3 “And in the second part:
the slaughtering of the great.
4 “And in the third part: the fall of many into death.
5 “And in the fourth part: the sending of the sword.
6 “And in the fifth part: famine and the withholding of rain.
7 “And in the sixth part: […]
8 [“And in the seventh part:] earthquakes and terrors.1
9 “And in the eighth part: a multitude of phantoms and the attacks of demons.
10 “And in the ninth part: the fall of fire.
11 “And in the tenth part: rape and much oppression.
12 “And in the eleventh part: injustice and unchastity.
13 “And in the twelfth part: disorder arising from a conglomeration of everything which has been previously mentioned.
14 “For these parts of that time are reserved,
and will be mixed, one with another,
and they will minister to each other.
15 For some of these parts will withhold a portion of themselves while taking from others, and some will accomplish their own portion as well as that of others; hence, those who live on earth in those days will not understand that this is the end of times.
28.1 But at that time, whoever understands will be wise. 2 For the measure and the calculation of that time is two parts a week of seven weeks.”
2 Baruch 27:1-15 & 28:1
Notice also whoever ‘understands will be wise‘ which reminds me of Daniel 12:10 that states that the ‘wise shall understand‘. Isn’t that what is going on? People say the tribulation has begun, others say no it’s not yet. But actually it has crept up on us. As I say, tribulation by stealth! But the wise shall understand.
Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
I am not sure what ‘two parts of a week of seven weeks‘ is referring to. I know that Jacob worked for two weeks of years for his two wives, Rachel and Lea, giving us 14 years in total. Pharaoh had a dream of 7 good and 7 bad years. I think this has end times implications. But that is another for another blog.
Let’s look at what good things the Lord is going to do at the same time and tie up some loose ends.
When are the 144,000 Sealed?
13 Thou shalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven days, after that thou hast gathered in thy corn and thy wine:
14 And thou shalt rejoice in thy feast, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite, the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are within thy gates.
36 Flee the shadow of this world, receive the joyfulness of your glory: I testify my Saviour openly.
37 O receive the gift that is given you, and be glad, giving thanks unto him that hath led you to the heavenly kingdom.
38 Arise up and stand, behold the number of those that be sealed in the feast of the Lord;
39 Which are departed from the shadow of the world, and have received glorious garments of the Lord.
II Esdras 2:36-39
However it is my suspicion which I shared in my previous blog post titled ‘Birthpangs of Kingdom: An Acceptable time for the Antichrist vs 144,000 Suffering Warrior Preachers‘ that the 144,000 will be commissioned with authority and power while still in their mortal flesh. This is because the144,000 are called servants and we are told about the suffering servant in Isaiah 42 etc. Yes Yeshua is that suffering servant but so are those that follow Him. And if we are to reign with Him we must also suffer with him. Also Yeshua sent out his disciples as sheep amongst wolves in Matthew 10 and Luke 10. These are prophetic scriptures as explained in the previous article quoted above. Again I would strongly recommend my readers to read this article as the time is directly upon us I believe. The 144,000 may be commissioned now and endued with power but be sealed after the completion of their Holy Spirit empowered mortal mission.
So to recap I believe we have already seen the seals opening since September 20, one per year but this September, the black Horse is going to start riding and all the other horsemen will be riding with him. We are being jolted into the ‘beginning of sorrows‘ that Yeshua warned us of. We must not lose heart at this time because the Lord is about to make a move on the enemy also. He is about to commission the 144,000 to preach the prophetic word, the Kingdom of God is coming physically to the earth very soon and the process of the 2nd exodus will begin. We are about to be invaded. I don’t think the 144,000 are sealed now, but they are endued with authority to preach his Word, drive out demons, heal and do miracles etc. They must be faithful servants and not bury their talent. They are about to be tested with their first assignment, which is to begin the preparation of the barley harvest, help get the remnant of Israel and Judah in order and preach to the gentiles too. His Spirit will be moving with His remnant.
We must take to heart that Yeshua is in control of the destruction of our nations. It is His judgement. We just need to ask Him personally, what He would have us do. The people that know their God shall be strong and get the job done, Daniel 11:32.
Pray, Fast & Seek the Lord while He may be found.
Love in Yeshua HaMashiach,
