Seal 6 and the Dry Bones

Satan has been laying the groundwork for a secular new world order (and global government) for hundreds of years; and by the time we reach seal 6, his plan will be sufficiently advanced that a kind of “critical mass” will have been achieved, and both the nature and the face of society will begin changing much more rapidly.

Because Revelation is a vision, the events depicted play out in heaven. However, these heavenly events typically have an “earthly shadow,” even if it does not always look exactly like the heavenly picture. The key to understanding Revelation, then, is to decode the symbolism. If we understand what they symbols mean, then we can have a better idea about what to expect.

Revelation tells us that there will be a great earthquake at seal 6. Try imagining that this “great earthquake” is really a “social ground quake” (i.e., a massive change in the nature of society) that takes place as the “old world order” of Christian and Islamic nations is broken apart, and is reassembled under the auspices of the United Nations (UN) following a nuclear crisis in the Middle East. Let us read this passage first, and then we will talk about the meanings of the other symbols.

Hitgalut (Revelation) 6:12-17
12 I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.
13 And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind.
14 Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place.
15 And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves 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 who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!
17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”

Many commentators believe that the sky receding as a scroll refers to the mushroom cloud of a nuclear blast. With Muslim countries such as Pakistan (and soon, Iran) obtaining nuclear weapons, this is a realistic and highly likely scenario. Thus, when the kings of the earth and the great men, the rich men, etc., go to hide in the caves and the rocks, this would be a reference to their fallout shelters. But what about the other symbols?

In Malachi 4:2, Yeshua is described as the “sun” of righteousness, which arises with healing in His wings.

Malachi 4:2
2 But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise With healing in His wings; And you shall go out And grow fat like stall-fed calves.

In Revelation 22:16, Yeshua tells us that He is the bright and the morning star (i.e., the sun). While this does not justify “S-nday” worship, it is nonetheless the analogy that He applies to Himself.

Hitgalut (Revelation) 22:16
16 “I, Yeshua, have sent My messenger to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”

Yet if Yeshua is described as the “sun,” then imagine that the “sun” that becomes black as sackcloth of hair in Revelation 6:12 (above) refers to the doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church and her daughters (the Protestant and Orthodox churches). The ancient Roman swastika is a traditional symbol of Roman power and domination, and it is referred to in the occult as the “black sun.” Black Sun Seal 6 and the Dry Bones If the “black sun” refers to the Roman doctrines, then imagine that the “moon” in Revelation refers to mainline Judaism, which teaches the Torah, but without Yeshua. Scripture tells us that Yahweh’s word is like a lamp, and this is the light that Judaism goes by.

Tehillim (Psalms) 119:105
105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

You can “walk” by the light of the moon, but not nearly so well as in daylight. Yet if the moon (i.e., mainstream Jewish doctrines) became “like blood,” it might mean that Judaism began teaching even more corruption than they already do. How? Satan’s plan is for all the religions of the world to join together under the pope (who will report in turn to the UN).

Above, Grand Rabbis Yona Metzger (Ashkenazi) and Shlomo Amar (Sephardic) propose a new “United Nations of religion” to the pope (in 2004). Below, the pope meets with Muslim leaders on the temple mount, possibly discussing how to bring their faiths together.

Below is the pope at the United Nations, where he is already hailed as a hero.

As a hypothesis, if there was a nuclear crisis in the Middle East at seal 6 between the Islamic nations and Israel, the UN might step in and make Jerusalem an “international city,” and ask the pope to establish an “interfaith temple” there, with the outer courtyard open to all of the gentile religions of the world.

This is a realistic scenario, and if such an “interfaith temple” is built, then it would set the stage for the rest of Revelation to play out as written.

The “stars” in Revelation may represent Avraham’s seed, who Yahweh said would become as numerous as the stars of the heavens.

B’reisheet (Genesis) 22:17
17 “Blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies.”

In this case, the “stars” might represent our cousins in Ishmael, i.e., the Muslim people. Many of them might “fall” from their faith if an interfaith temple is built in Jerusalem, contrary to Islamic prophecy. Conversely, others suggest that the “stars falling from the heaven” refers to nuclear missiles, seeing as the “sky recedes like a scroll” in the very next verse.

With Iran seeking to obtain nuclear weapons, it seems like only a matter of time until there is a nuclear conflict in the Middle East; and while there are some Jews, Christians and Muslims who would prefer to die than to compromise on their faith, the average Christian, Jew and/or Muslim would probably approve of a measure to make Jerusalem an “international city” and to establish an “interfaith temple” on the temple mount, if it would avert the prospect of further nuclear war. From the point of view of the Middle East, this would be a major “ground shaking,” or a “major earthquake.” As we will see later, this may be the “shaking” in Ezekiel 37:7, when the Ephraimites begin to come together.

Ezekiel 37:7
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a shaking; and the bones came together, bone to bone.

(7) וְנִבֵּאתִי כַּאֲשֶׁר צֻוֵּיתִי | וַיְהִי קוֹל כְּהִנָּבְאִי וְהִנֵּה רַעַשׁ וַתִּקְרְבוּ עֲצָמוֹת עֶצֶם אֶל עַצְמוֹ

The “shaking” here is the Hebrew word “ra’ash” (רַעַשׁ ), and it is the same word that is used in modern Hebrew for a seismic activity. Strong’s Hebrew Concordance describes it this way:

OT:7494 ra`ash (rah’-ash); from OT:7493; vibration, bounding, uproar:
KJV – commotion, confused noise, earthquake, fierceness, quaking, rattling, rushing, shaking.

Here is the reference to OT:7493:

OT:7493 ra`ash (raw-ash); a primitive root; to undulate (as the earth, the sky, etc.; also a field of grain), particularly through fear; specifically, to spring (as a locust):
KJV – make afraid, (re-) move, quake, (make to) shake, (make to) tremble.

This social landscape would “undulate” due to fear of a nuclear conflagration, and this fear would persuade most people to support the United Nations and their one world religion. This might also induce the house of Ephraim to “get off the fence,” and organize.

Some see similarities between Revelation 6:12 and Joel 2, which speaks of the Day of Yahweh.

Revelation 6:12
12 I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.

Joel 2:30-31
30 “And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth:

Blood and fire and pillars of smoke.

31 The sun shall be turned into darkness,
And the moon into blood,
Before the coming of the great and awesome day of Yahweh.

As we will see later, the “Day of Yahweh” may well be the cup/bowl judgments. As per the chart, these will come after the trumpets, but before Armageddon.

Remembering that the earthly shadow does not always look like the heavenly event, the sun being darkened and the moon being turned “into blood” may refer to the effects of the nuclear exchange, which would throw large amounts of debris into the air. This would make for a “red moon” and a “nuclear winter” (in which the sun would be darkened).

The “mountains and islands” which are “moved out of their places” likely refer to governments and national boundaries, respectively. They would be “moved out of their places” if the UN rose to full power, and gave the temple mount to the pope, such that he established an interfaith temple in Jerusalem. As we will see later, it may take some 14 years for the turmoil to “settle down” before the “half hour of silence” that takes place at seal 7.

Next the narrative will go to the sealing of the 144,000, and then after that it will go to seal 7, at which time there will be “a half an hour of silence” in heaven.

Hitgalut (Revelation) 8:1
1 When He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.

If this number is definite, Ezekiel gives us a principle that one prophetic day can be equal to an earth year.

Yehezqel (Ezekiel) 4:6
6 “And when you have completed them, lie again on your right side; then you shall bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days. I have laid on you a day for each year.”

If there are 24 hours in a day, then ½ hour is 1/48th of a day. If we take a 360 day Hebrew year, and divide by 48 parts, we get 7.5 days. However, this makes no sense, as the fallout from the war will not even settle in that amount of time (and the “political fallout” will take even longer). That being the case, we need to apply the principle of a day for 1,000 years, instead.

Kepha Bet (2 Peter) 3:8
8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with Yahweh, 1 day is as 1,000 years, and 1,000 years as 1 day.

If there are 24 hours in a day, then ½ hour is 1/48th of a 1,000 year period. This equals 20.83 years before the tribulation begins. This makes much more sense, as it would give enough time for a generation of children to grow up indoctrinated to believe that the pope has to be on the temple mount in order to avoid nuclear war.

In coming chapters we will see that the seventh seal opens the trumpets, which are the 7 year tribulation per se. We will also see that the second half of the 7 year tribulation will be what is called the “time of Jacob’s trouble.” Those who do not submit to the new united religion will be hunted down at that time. This will be much easier to do if an entire generation of soldiers has been raised to believe that the nuclear conflict at seal 6 was caused by fundamental Christian, Jewish, and Islamic beliefs, and that such fundamental faith is evil, and cannot help but lead to war.

It is also possible that this “half hour” does not equal 20.8 earth years, but refers simply to “a certain amount of time.” We will see other examples of this kind of thing in chapters 17 and 18. But according to our theory, it is this time which is used to establish an anti-Messiah’s temple.

Next in the narrative come the 144,000 and the great multitude dressed in white.
