Open Heaven 19 May 2022 TOPIC: The Seven Seals I
MEMORISE: “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.” – Revelation 6:1
READ: Revelation 6:1-2 (KJV)
1 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.
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.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Nehemiah 9-11
Open Heaven 19 May 2022 MESSAGE:
After rapture has happened and God has taken His children out of this world, seven seals will be opened in heaven and some notable event will take place on the earth.
Revelation 6:1-2 says:
“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. 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”
When Jesus opened the first seal, John saw a man sitting on a white horse and holding a bow. The man was given a crown and then he went forth to conquer. This man is the Anti-Christ. He will be given a crown over the world after the rapture. At that time, the whole world will come together under one body and he will be made the leader. If you noticed in the passage above, he has a bow but no arrow. This is because he will not conquer with force but with diplomacy. He will be perceived as a man of peace. He will be so diplomatic that he will be loved by everyone. He will even allow the Jews to rebuild the temple.
There have been many speculations as to who the Anti-Christ is. At one time, people said it was Adolph Hitler, but clearly that is not correct. Some people say that he is already born and will begin his campaign to rule the world when he is thirty years old. This is assuming that he will pattern his life after Jesus Christ. I cannot say who the Anti-Christ is, but one thing I know is that the devil is waiting eagerly for that time when he will raise him to rule the earth and since he knows that rapture will happen very soon, his own agent must also be ready. For me, it doesn’t matter who the Anti-Christ is because I will not be here when he is ruling the world. What about You? Will you still be here when the Anti-Christ arises? The answer to that question is not about what you say, but rather, how you live your life now. If you live holy now, then you will not be here then, but if you still engage in sin, then God help you when the Anti-Christ arises.
Open Heaven 19 May 2022 REFLECTION:
Some people will be safe in heaven by the time the anti-christ begins his rule on earth. Where will you be when the time comes?
Open Heaven 19 May 2022 HYMN 2: Conquerors And Overcome Now Are We
1 Conquerors and overcomers now are we,
Thro’ the precious blood of Christ we’ve victory,
If the Lord be for us, we can never fail;
Nothing ‘gainst his mighty pow’r can e’er prevail.
Conquerors are we, thro’ the blood, thro’ the blood;
God will give us victory, thro’ the blood, thro’ the blood,
Thro’ the Lamb for sinners slain,
Yet who lives and reigns again,
More than conquerors are we,
More than conquerors are we.
2 In the name of Israel’s God we’ll onward press,
Overcoming sin and all unrighteousness;
Not to us, but unto him the praise shall be,
For salvation and for blood-bought victory.
3 Unto him that overcometh shall be giv’n
Here to eat of hidden manna sent from heav’n;
Over yonder he the victor’s palm shall bear,
And a robe of white, and golden crown shall wear.
