FIRST SEAL: AD 31 to AD 100
The seals have to do with government. More of a social outlook of what would happen to the Christian church. The churches had to do more with Bible truth, the seals more with social conditions. Between the two, we get a more complete picture of what would be happening to the church of God.
SECOND SEAL: AD 100 to AD 313
THIRD SEAL: AD 313 to AD 538
FOURTH SEAL: AD 538 to AD 1517
FIFTH SEAL: AD 1517 to 1755
SIXTH SEAL: AD 1755 to present and beyond
We live between verses 13 and 14. In verse 14 the "sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place." This is the Second Coming of Jesus. That is how close we are to His coming back to take the righteous home with Him. Are you ready?
This describes the plagues that will fall after the close of probation. When the world, as you will learn in Revelation 13, makes an international Sunday law forcing all to keep Sunday holy, probation closes and the seven last plagues will fall. They will last 7 months. Then Jesus will come.
