Scariest Chapter of the Bible is Revelation 6
Oh, My Goodness! What a terrifying chapter…. So grateful for the deliverance assured believers and explained in I & II Thessalonians….
The Lamb opened the first four seals of the seven seals that bound the scroll. John saw a white horse, followed by fiery red horse, followed by a black horse, and then a “pale horse.” These four horses brought death and destruction to the earth. An estimated 2 billion people (conservative estimate) die in a relatively short time.
The Lamb opened the fifth seal and John “saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held.” These souls cried out for the Lord to “judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth.” To each was given a white robe and was told to “rest a little while longer” because more “of their fellow servants and brethren” were yet to be killed and added to the number of the martyred.
From Bad to Worse
The sixth seal was opened which brought forth catastrophic natural disaster – “a great earthquake;” the sun appeared as “black as sackcloth of hair” and the moon “like blood” in color. Bright objects “fell to the earth, as a fig tree when it is shaken by a mighty wind.” The “sky receded as a scroll and every mountain and island was moved out of its place.”
The people of the earth hid “in the caves and in the rocks…and said to the mountains and rocks, fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! The announcement is made that “the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” Wow! Appears to be trouble ahead…. Why is this going to happen? Good question.
How Will it All End?
The seventh and final seal…. will need to read the book of Revelation to find out how it all ends….
