|THE SEVEN SEALS OF REVELATION|
|THE THIRD SEAL. JUDGEMENT ON THE WORLDS ECONOMY, CAUSING DISRUPTION, INFLATION - THE RISE AND FALL OF THE ANTICHRIST AND HIS SYSTEM. Revelation 6:5-6.|
|When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, "Come and see." So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, "A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius: and do not harm the oil and the wine."
One of the main aims of terrorism is to hit the economies of the countries that they are targeting, causing as much disruption as they possibly can. New York September 11th is a reminder of this, and also the London bombings. God removed the defences away from these countries, allowing the terrible attacks that took place, causing their economies to be hit and billions of dollars to be lost. This is the third seal judgement in operation, warning people of further judgements to come.
The third seal judgement is a shaking of the financial institutions of the world, causing much loss and inflation. The world is now at war, nothing is guaranteed secure and intact anymore. God is shaking the nations and everything that can be shaken will be shaken. People will not be able to confidently say "Peace and safety" anymore, for there will be no real peace until the Lord Jesus Christ comes back to the earth to establish His kingdom rule, and bring about the real peace and security that people are longing for.
The oil and the wine speak of worldly goods and luxury that prosperous society's enjoy. A denarius was the daily wage for a labourer, which would normally buy eight times the amount. This is speaking about the economy and inflation affecting different nations throughout the world, who have enjoyed times of prosperity and luxury, but are now finding it hard to make ends meet through inflated prices.
Chancellors of the exchequer and financial advisors can make as many predictions as they want about the stability of their countries economy, but if God shakes that economy through His judgements, then there is nothing in the world that they can do about it.
|Hurricane Katrina that swept through the Gulf of Mexico, Mississippi, Louisiana state, and New Orleans is another example of another burden on America's economy, causing billions of dollars worth of damage; oil refineries were hit, triggering shock waves that inflated fuel prices in Britain, causing panic buying at petrol stations.
When we think about Adolph Hitler's rise to power, we cannot help comparing it to these days that we are now living in, especially within the European Union and the instability of the Euro. The No! vote in France against the European constitution and full integration has caused a shaking, instability, and a financial crisis within the Union, with the Euro losing its value. Some are asking the question, "Can the Euro survive?" Will there be a financial collapse in Europe?
One thing is certain, the European Union needs someone with a brilliant mind to sort out the mess, someone who will galvanise all the leaders of the member states, to endorse his plan to rescue them from the mess, and place Europe on a sure footing again, and in the centre of the world stage.
|We need to keep in mind, that whenever there is an economic crisis in any country or state, then it is the perfect time for a for a takeover from someone who has a brilliant plan, whether it is for the good of the people or not. Adolph Hitler took advantage of a similar situation in Germany during his rise to power. The German people had suffered terrible economic problems and unemployment during the period of the Weimar Republic (1919-1933), hyperinflation was rampant, the purchasing power of money was at an all time low. During 1923-24 the German people were using their currency for fuel in their fires. During 1930 to 1932 the Great Depression reached its height. The German people blamed the treaty of Versailles (1919) for causing many of their problems, because the treaty caused them to surrender resource rich areas and pay massive amounts of compensation because of their involvement in World War 1. At the same time the effects of the Great Depression in America contributed towards Germany's economic problems, the end result was the collapse of the Weinmar republic, and out of the ashes the rise of Adolph Hitler and his Nazi party (1933) with the promise of new industry, employment for the masses, prosperity, and a bright future. After years of unemployment and poverty, Germany's industry became stronger. Germany was blossoming again, the masses were finding employment, all due to Adolph Hitler. At the same time Hitler was blaming the Jews for Germany's lack of prosperity, this gave him the leverage to get rid of them.
Are we heading towards a similar situation today, with the shaking of the financial institutions and economies worldwide, through natural disasters and terrorism, causing the leaders of the world to look for an experienced man, powerfull in diplomacy and leadership, with an intelligent plan and answer to resolve the problems. A man that can help them out of the mess, leading them to a brighter future and prosperity, not only for their own countries, but also for the poor and famine stricken third world countries.
|The key word of this message is scarcity. Even in the prosperous Western countries many people are feeling the financial pinch, people are restricting their spending habits because of fear of what's happening. With insecurity in jobs, causing people to worry about their mortgage payments, and not taking the gamble of moving to another area to buy a larger house.
We are fast approaching the time when the Man of Sin (Antichrist) will take advantage of the present world crisis with his plan for a New World Order, promising peace, prosperity and freedom for all nations who will give their allegiance to him. We are already seeing the plan of the Antichrist in action with massive food and medical aid programmes, and debt relief in Africa and third world countries. All this will give the Antichrist the respect of the world because of his compassionate action on poverty relief.
The Bible is clear in its warnings: "While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage. 2 Peter 2:19. Let us not be fooled, Satan is at work casting his spell of mass deception over the nations of the world, causing people to believe in the lie of the Antichrist; he is using what appears to be good and compassionate through massive aid programmes and promises of a secure prosperous future to deceive the masses. He will also cause a temporary fragile peace worldwide.
The Bible is the only book that can reveal the secret plan of the enemy of men's souls. The Holy Spirit of God will reveal to all believers in Christ (who will humbly submit to God and His Word) the truth and significance of the signs of the times as revealed through the word in relation to the events that are happening in the world at this present time and the future. The Bible is the only reliable truth you will ever hear, and the Holy Spirit of God will guide you into all truth through its pages. The Bible states that there is a "Mystery of Iniquity" at work in the world today. The mystery is Satan's plan to deceive the world, bringing mankind into slavery, and ultimately lead them down the broad road to a Christless eternity.
|The fact is, the Bible states that the European Economic Community will prosper in the end times (even though the Bible describes the Union as iron mixed with clay) through worldwide trade. The "Man of Sin" will cause this to happen with his ability and ingenuity to use the massive resources available within the EU.
Listen to God's description of the European Superstate's power and prosperity before its downfall under the hand of God. "The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, "standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city of Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgement has come.' "And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore: "merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble; "and cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men. "The fruit that you longed for has gone from you, and all the things that are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all. "The merchants of these things who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, "and saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! 'For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.' Every shipmaster, and all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many who trade on the sea, stood at a distance "and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, 'What is like this great city?' "They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, 'Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.' "Rejoice over her, O heaven and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!" Revelation 18:19-20.
|One Of The Reasons Why God Will Judge The Earth.
One of the greatest sins that Great Britain and Europe are guilty of is the sin of abortion, which has caused God to say to this country: "Thus far and no further." This is one of the reasons why God's judgement is on Great Britain, Europe, and other nations throughout the world. The mass murder of innocent babies which we have allowed to be mutilated and incinerated in hospital furnaces. We can compare this sin to Hitler's gas chambers and ovens of death at the various concentration camps for the final solution of murdering Jews, Gypsies, the old and infirm, children, and many others. The greater sin now is that these babies cannot protest against their murderers. So when people complain about the message about God's judgement on Great Britain, Europe, and the rest of the world, then they need to think again, because we deserve every one of the judgements that we will have to endure, and eventually the wrath of God.
There has been no national repentance for the murder of the innocents, instead we stand up in our pride and justify our actions. Jesus Christ warned that if anyone harmed one of these little ones, then it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and be thrown into the depths of the sea.
The shaking of the world's economy and inflation is only a minor judgement in comparison to what is yet to come for our sin against God. People throughout the world can be as opiniated against God and His word as much as they want, but there is a day coming when every knee will bow before Him, and give an account to Him for all their actions in this life, and for every idle word that they have spoken.
People might think they can hide their sin and works of darkness away from God now, but they will not be able to hide from Him on the day of judgement, because there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.
There isn't a single person on the face of the earth that can hide their words and actions from God, that includes the things and practices that they don't want anyone else to see, because it would in many cases cause them great embarrassment and trouble, or even brand them as criminals
It is better to come clean with God now and repent of your sin, because it will be too late on the day He comes back to judge the earth, then your secret sins will be known to every single person that you are now hiding them from. Romans 10:9-10.

Since I first published the above message we have seen the judgements contained in it being fulfilled. We have been through the period of inflation, and now we are experiencing through the financial crisis, recession and depression. We are now approaching the time when Antichrist will appear on the world stage, taking advantage of the current situation that will elevate him to his new position of President of the European Superstate.
