The 7 Seals


Lord, I'm trying to picture the events of Revelation chapter 6. The Lamb opens the 7 Seals that bind the Scroll that only the Lamb is worthy to open. The first Seal is conquest. The second Seal takes peace from the earth. The third Seal is famine. The fourth Seal unleashes Death by sword, famine, plague, and by wild beasts, and Hell follows on its heels. When the fifth Seal is opened it reveals the souls of martyrs underneath the Throne. They are waiting to be avenged.

All of those things will be terrible, horrible. But the sixth Seal brings utter chaos upon the Earth. The globe, this sphere sailing through space. That sixth Seal will bring cataclysmic catastrophes to the Earth: a transcontinental earthquake, the sun turning black, the moon turning red, stars falling from the sky which tears loose and rolls away like a scroll, every mountain and island on Earth shifting, moving as the earthquake cracks the Earth open like an egg.

And people will survive all this somehow. Now I'm getting to the scary part, Lord. Here's where Christians start to really disagree. Where is the Church when all this happens? Where are we?


You are safely held in the palm of My hand, Little One. Just like always.
