The sixth seal is where things get really scary upon the earth. And here is why. At this time on the earth, there are earthquakes that are bigger than we have ever seen before. Even to the point of causing mountains and islands to be moved and destroyed. This will cause parts of the earth to sink and be covered by water. In the sky, we will see a blood moon and also meteorites showering down upon the earth. This in itself will cause major damage to different buildings, houses, and other structures upon the earth, along with the deaths of millions of people. And what will be very scary is how dark it will be upon the earth. It is because the sun will be darkened, along with the planets, stars, and moon, not being available to see. All this and more is written for us to visualize in Revelation, chapter 6, starting with verse 12. It reads, “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; 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. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.” (Revelation 6:12-14) All this will be a sight to see for sure, but only those who know and follow Jesus will be ready, for His return will be soon at hand.
This leads us to the proceeding events that will come next. As you may think, pandemonium and chaos will be filling many people’s hearts at this time. I can imagine the military coming to each town and city to help people find shelter, food to eat, and water to drink. Large stadiums will be filled with people, with the lights of the stadiums lighting it up during the day. Because people rely on electricity, it will be down in many places around the globe and they will be forced to pull out flashlights and lanterns to light their way. At this time, people that know God is doing this are fearful will run to the mountains and the hills, in order to try to find a safe place to hide, while in caves and other places. We can find this description as we read further in this chapter. It reads, “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; 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: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” (Revelation 6:15-17) If you are around at this time, then know that Jesus’s return is soon at hand. But let us prepare today for Jesus’s second coming. It will be here before we know it. The wicked won’t be ready, but will you?
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that people in the faith will remain faithful to You. There are many trials in this life, but You make things much easier to bear. We are living in the end times before Your second coming. This knowledge helps me understand the catastrophes this earth will soon see. Every prophecy that has been spoken will surely come to pass exactly as it was spoken in Your Holy Bible. I just pray that You will keep me and my family safe during these times of chaos. Even now, millions of people are fearful because of the pandemic that is upon the earth because of the Coronavirus. COVID has caused many people to forget You and to only tune into their church service every so often through streaming it on TV. Thankfully, You have pulled me out from my house also and back into the church building again. Because of certain people, I have also found a home church, that I can add to my fellowship with Calvary Chapel. It is so true, God, that we cannot get enough of You during the day. When You are near me, is when I am the happiest. That is why I long to go to places where we can pray together and read and study the Bible as a group. But most of all, God, my testimony has grown to a point that I want to tell everyone about You. Jesus, You mean the world to me. I pray that people will be ready to receive You in death or in Your coming. I love You, Lord. This I pray, in Your Name, Jesus. Amen.
