Matthew 24:6-8 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. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Mark 13:7-8 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
1 Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
Future, Real, during the ‘7 Year Tribulation’;
Revelation; Chapter SIX (6), the ‘start’ of the Tribulation when Christ, the Lamb, opens the first seven (7) SEALS of wrath or judgement against evil man’kind (6).
The following is my discernment and teaching. The Apocalypse is a ‘REVEALING’ or showing what is coming. Chapter six is a ’70,000 foot view or general recap of the coming seven (7) year tribulation. It starts off with the revealing of the Beast or Antichrist and ends with the Armageddon battle on the Day or our Lord’s Return to Earth, to ‘rule the nations with an iron rod.’ The referenced article below, is that of another ‘watchman’ for reference and comparison. We should be in agreement.
6 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
(Commentary; Christ, the Lamb was the ONLY ONE WORTHY in heaven, to have the authority to ‘open’ the seals and start the tribulation)
2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
(Commentary; the rider is the ‘beast’ or ‘antichrist’. His being clothed in white suggests false righteousness, false peace and false authority. He has a bow, but no arrows. He rules with lies and threats, but no military or arms. He conquers and subjugates, not with force but with lies, deception, false covenants and false agreements. He is the world’s greatest ‘political’ leader and deceiver. He is the one who ‘confirms the false covenant of seven years with Jacob’ which starts the tribulation. You should know now of who I speak. His ‘crown’ represents authority, rulership and position. It even literally represents his ‘position’ as Crown Prince, once the tribulation begins. My discernment is that the ‘white horse upon which he sits’ is symbolically a white Arabian stallion.)
3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
(Commentary; ‘Rumours and Threats of Wars’ are no longer threats, but reality. War will literally ‘break out’ across the earth as nations wage war against one another. This is NOT Armageddon or WWWIII. They are fighting each other, not a common enemy or common threat. Different countries have differences between each other, and no one in particular … except perhaps for the ‘King of the East.’ This is my discernment. ‘Great Sword’ suggests great military technology, as a sword is a reference to military arms. Humanity has more destructive military power at its fingertips now than at any point in human history.)
5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
(Commentary; balances are symbolic for economic transactions and ‘prices’ for things such as wheat and barley grain, bread, olive oil, wine, various food commodities. These are common throughout the world and are considered by most as the ‘staples of life or living.’)
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
(Commentary; The world will have reached a point of ‘climate apartheid’ where only the wealthy can afford basic food resources in the face of fatal droughts, famine, locust swarms and heatwaves, while the rest of the world suffers. Only the extreme rich can afford expensive cooking oil, baked pastries and loaves of multi-grain breads, fancy wines and related luxurious food stuffs. Yet, the ‘average peasant’ has to work for an entire day’s wages just to be able to buy enough wheat to make a loaf of bread. Great and severe income inequality is rampant worldwide. The ‘few’ own a massive disproportion of the earth’s wealth and bounty. Billionaires vs billions of poor. The ‘Crown Prince’ owns 60,000 (6) tonnes of wheat in his store houses or graineries while the few grain silos in the Port of Lebanon were destroyed and its people are threatened with expensive grain shortages that require humanitarian assistance.)
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.
(Commentary; ‘pale’ suggests disease, death and dying. Disease and death are the normal results for those subjected to endless warring. Cholera, famine, infection, no clean water, no housing, no medicine, no hospitals, etc., all play a part in continuing to kill those who were not killed in direct fighting. These are normally the ‘innocent’ or the civilians, not the military. Hell follows, why? Because the vast majority of peoples in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and elsewhere have rejected the gospel of salvation by Jesus Christ for just over 2,000 years. They follow Satan’s lies (Islam) and deceptions with other false religions (Hindu deities) and various deceiving doctrines. Even though they appear ‘innocent’ by the world’s standards, they are none-the-less ‘unsaved’ because of their rejection of Christ. Time is up, they unfortunately die because of the effects of war, in an unsaved state … hence ‘hell awaits them’. This is truth)
9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
(Commentary; This verse specifically identifies the ‘Tribulation Saints.’ These are the people who became Christians during the tribulation and DID NOT worship the beast, or his image, or take his ‘mark, number or name.’ As a result of defying the Beast / Antichrist’s authority and NOT worshiping him, they are beheaded. They lose their necks, but gain eternity with Christ. Saudi Arabia is the ONLY country in the world that uses beheading for corporal punishment and is used against people for proselytizing against Islam. Islam, ‘those who worship the dragon and the beast.’)
10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
The Sixth Seal: A Nuclear Holocaust
Revelation 6:12-14: I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black… the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth… The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
John probably refers to “fractional orbital bombs” — nuclear-tipped missiles fired simultaneously from orbiting satellites. When these missiles streak through the air they’ll look like meteors entering the atmosphere.
“The skies roll back.” In a nuclear explosion the atmosphere literally rolls back on itself. The shock wave followed by the tremendous rush of air back into the vacuum creates utter destruction.
“The sun turns black and moon red,” means smoke so massive that no one can see the sun.
Look at the human reaction.
Revelation 6:15-17: Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?”
Every strata of society is affected.
The greatest prayer meeting that the world has ever seen commences. You’d think that men and women would finally call upon the name of the Lord. Instead, they pray to the rocks.
What’s the result of all this shaking? Do men turn to God? No! It just makes their hearts harder! There is a lesson there.
The more often you say “no” to Christ, the harder it is to ever say “yes.”
Saying “no, no, no” God hardens the heart like a stone. Think of Pharaoh. Think of the men and women who listened to Noah’s preaching for 125 years and never repented. If you’re not going to say “yes” in 125 years, what makes you think you’ll do it if you have one more year?
2020 Just Keeps Rolling Along with ‘Rumours and Threats of Wars Getting Bigger and Bigger and Bigger, Like Labor Pains.’ Red Horse – Black Horse and Pale Horse; COVID-19, Ebola, and conflict are triple-threat for humanitarian efforts in Congo. ‘And Hell Follows Death.’ HORSEMEN OF THE APOCALYPSE.
Crux Staff Sep 26, 2020
YAOUNDÉ, Cameroon – COVID-19 is straining the humanitarian resources in the Democratic Republic of Congo, which is already suffering from outbreaks of cholera, measles and Ebola, as well as ongoing civil conflicts (5)
“Currently, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and spread of the virus in the DRC’s capital of Kinshasa, [Catholic Relief Services] is implementing multiple emergency projects to address the pandemic’s impact on household and health care facility hygiene, food security, and livelihoods,” said Ghislain Mukana, the program manager for integrated health for Catholic Relief Services (CRS) in the country.
CRS is the international development arm of the U.S. bishops’ conference.
“Generally, it can be said that the COVID-19 pandemic and repeated Ebola outbreaks – as well as outbreaks of cholera and measles – have strained the capacity of the national health system and highlighted the need for continued international assistance supporting national responses and capacity,” he told Crux.
Following are excerpts of his conversation with Crux.
Crux: The World Health Organization (WHO) has raised fears over the possible spread of Ebola in the Equateur Province of the DRC neighboring Republic of Congo and even the DRC capital, Kinshasa. How serious would you describe this latest outbreak?
Mukana: Further expansion of the ongoing Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) epidemic in Equateur province remains possible. It is also important to note that the current epidemic has already reached three times as many health zones than the previous EVD epidemic in the same province in 2018. Over the past two weeks, cases of EVD have reportedly spread toward the north and east of the province.
The risk of the outbreak’s expansion toward Kinshasa would be increased if the city of Mbandaka, a transportation hub between by river and air transport to the capital, continues to register new cases. This risk would be especially considerable if cases escape diagnosis in Mbandaka and if cases are exchanged between the Mbandaka and neighboring Bikoro health zones, where new cases continue to appear. Potential risk of expansion to neighboring Republic of Congo also exists given that the neighboring health zone of Bomongo recorded new cases since 04 September.
How does an Ebola outbreak in the midst of COVID-19 further complicate things for the country?
The first constraint confronting the response to the latest EVD epidemic in the era of COVID-19 is one of reduced resources:
– Human resources. Specialists in the prevention and management of epidemics are currently shared across all the country’s provinces and are engaged in the national effort to control the COVID-19 pandemic;
– Financial and material resources are insufficient;
– Health facilities are under greater pressure.
The second constraint comes from the tendency of populations in areas affected by Ebola to relocate so as to avoid contracting the virus, which complicates efforts to contain the spread of both EVD and COVID-19.
Finally, both diseases have a definite impact on the productivity of communities, exposing them to challenges of food insecurity and malnutrition.
Added to Ebola and COVID-19, the country is also experiencing a measles outbreak that has so far killed 7000 (7) people since 2019. Can you tell us more about this?
The DRC recently declared that the measles epidemic that has killed more than 7000 children was over. This announcement gives hope back to communities and encourages teams responding to the ongoing epidemics of COVID-19 and Ebola in the country.
In the face of all these, plus the conflict raging to the east of the country, what are the humanitarian needs?
The D.R. Congo faces a multitude of needs ranging from immediate response to humanitarian emergencies to long-term development support advancing the creation of sustainable and resilient livelihoods, improved water, sanitation and hygiene infrastructure, and improved health and nutrition outcomes, among other needs. The vast size of the D.R. Congo means that the profile of needs varies greatly depending on geography and specific historical, social, and political dynamics of a given province or territory.
Generally, it can be said that the COVID-19 pandemic and repeated Ebola outbreaks – as well as outbreaks of cholera and measles – have strained the capacity of the national health system and highlighted the need for continued international assistance supporting national responses and capacity.
CRS’s recent experience in delivering emergency and development programming amid the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the critical importance of empowering local partners and communities in line with CRS’ principle of subsidiarity: That people who are closer to the problem and have a better understanding of the issue are best placed to respond to their own needs.
What has CRS been doing to provide such assistance?
Recognizing the complex intersection of emergency and development needs in the DRC, CRS implements both short-term emergency responses and long-term development programs in the country in collaboration with more than 20 local partners.
Current projects comprise integrated, wide-ranging and gender-responsive and transformative health, nutrition, and agricultural interventions that respond to the country’s diverse challenges. CRS’s presence across the country ensures our ability to rapidly start-up projects and impact participants’ lives in remote areas.
In 2018 and 2019, CRS worked with Caritas partners to address Ebola outbreaks in Equateur and North Kivu, South Kivu and Ituri provinces. In response to the latter outbreak, CRS and Caritas Goma implemented a project delivering Risk Communication and Community Engagement (RCCE) activities in parishes in and around the city of Goma. The project built the capacity of 600 local, religious and opinion leaders to raise awareness of behaviors that reduce exposure and transmission in their respective constituencies.
Currently, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and spread of the virus in the DRC’s capital of Kinshasa, CRS is implementing multiple emergency projects to address the pandemic’s impact on household and health care facility hygiene, food security, and livelihoods. With funding from the Center for Disaster Philanthropy, CRS is distributing hand washing kits to 8,000 households, providing direct food assistance to 2,000 households, and carrying out RCCE activities using radio and print materials. Additionally, CRS private funds have been allocated to provide mobile cash transfers to over 1,500 highly vulnerable households in the capital, and to furnish critical hygiene and sanitation support to Catholic health care facilities

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).
C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).
. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).
. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).
. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).
. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).
. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).
