The mysteries of the Seven Seals is wrought with a myriad of different interpretations, but when we study the book of Revelation from the perspective of seven stories and a little common sense we get an easy and clear picture of the events leading up to the Tribulation.
To help in following the sequence of events keep the Revelation Chart (here) and Timeline (here) available to aid you in your studies. I will be giving the event sequence and scriptures related to that event, which can be found in both the Chart and Timeline.
Our traditions try to teach us that the person on the white horse is the Antichrist. However, that creates a problem then with the horses that follow in seal two, three and four. If the rider of this first horse is a person, then we must apply that rule to that pattern of the next three seals also, which simply does not work as those are events not personages. Additionally, as we will discover the personage we know at the Antichrist does appear later in the sequence of events, so saying this rider is the Antichrist cannot apply to this imagery. To remain faithful to scripture we must maintain the context of all four horses.
In this context white is a symbol of holiness and since this horse is bringing war we can conclude he is bringing a Holy War. Note that the rider has a bow, but no arrows. This tells us that he is creating a war with no focus. There is no point to his war as it is not directed at any one target as the (missing) arrows would represent. His attacks are random and without clear goals. The rider is given a crown, but he does not have authority or dominion himself, it is given to him from another, He is going out to conquer on behalf of another.

The White Horse of the Seal One is the rise of Terrorism.

Did you know that there are two different dragons mentioned in the book of Revelation? The 1st one is mentioned in Revelation 12-13 and the 2nd one is mentioned in Revelation 17-19 in story of The Mystery Babylon. What most people don't know is that these are two completely different beasts. For many traditions have taught us that they are both representations of the Antichrist, but that is not the case. The first dragon in Revelation 12-13 is what we would call the Antichrist, he has a 10 nations confederacy located in the east finding it roots in the Grecian, Medo-Persian, and Babylonian Empires. What would surprise most people is that the 2nd beast in Revelation 17-19 is really not the Antichrist, but a representation of the United Nations. These two beasts will have a relationship but they are two completely different dragons. I go into this in detail in the chapter on "The Mystery Babylon" in the book: Tell Them to Prepare - A New Look at the book of Revelation. When we see the book of Revelation as seven stories instead of one, everything falls into perfect alignment and understanding.

If you don't voluntarily practice the Jubilee in your own life, then at some point you will be forced into a Jubilee and when that happens you will end up losing everything and it will be transferred to those who did practice the Jubilee (Prov 13;22).
Not only do we need to get out of debt, but we must learn to follow our calling that God has given us. By seeking first the Kingdom of God in fulfilling our purpose we step into a place where we find joy in the work we do and God will be the one who will meet all our needs, not the job we hate going to. We break free from serving other gods (Mammon) and focus on serving God only. Then He shows us what it is in our lives that He has called us to do and what will bring us the greatest joy in our lives.
One of the reasons the Jews prosper is because they understand how money works. For example, most people put all their money into one jar (account) and then pay their tithe and bills out of that hoping that they will have enough left over to live on. The Jews put the money they make into several accounts to protect that money for a given purpose. They would put there money into different accounts like the following:
1. Tithe - 10%
2. Offering - 10%
3. Savings - 10%
4. Investments - 20%
5. Spending - 50%

I've got a fun one for you today. Especially for those of you who like science.
Several years ago (1980’s) I was talking with the Lord and we got over on the subject of supernatural manifestations and more specifically occurrences where items were held in place when they should have fallen or when people were blocked from access to a certain location. I had heard stories and seen pictures where persons had a supernatural manifestation where a pool of blood appeared on their hand akin to where Jesus has nail scars. Yet when these people held up their hands the blood did not run down their arm. Another manifestation we talked about was when the glory of God appeared in a room during a visitation and then someone attempted to enter that room they were blocked at the threshold as if by a force field. I asked the Lord to explain what it was that did that.
Okay, for those of you who are always negative and always skeptical of things you don’t understand... go play somewhere else, today’s blog is not for you. The rest of you who want some fun can keep reading.
When I asked that question, most of you would think He would say something like the “Glory” and that is a natural assumption and for most an acceptable answer. But that is not the answer I got. The answer I got was something that I never expected or heard of before that day.
The Lord said He used: "MAGMA Force"
I replied: "MAGMA Force! What is MAGMA Force?"
The Lord replied: “MAGMA Force is MAGnetic Muon Acceleration.”
Oh, wow! I knew it when I heard it. I was about to get another science lesson from God.
Are you ready? Then keep reading.
The Lord said that muon’s are elementary particle associated with electrons and if emitted in a dense stream and contained in a magnetic field it can block physical penetration without causing damage to the object.
For God creating this field is simple as He understands all the interactions and knows how to create the field in any shape He desires. But He said that man’s technology was nowhere near the level needed to create such a field. When man does reach that level the early basic field generators will look something like this. And he gave me the image below (labeled just for you).
What is required is a strong magnetic field that is spinning around the emitter and collector, essentially creating a magnetic tube. Once the magnetic tube is established a dense stream of muon particles is released from the emitter and captured by the collector. The field itself is invisible, but if one attempted to pass an object through the field it would bounce off as if hitting a hard rubber surface. The hardness is controlled by the density of the muon stream. If it is too weak it could pass through, too dense and it would be like hitting a brick wall.
You can read about muons at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muon
Laugh if you want. I don’t understand it and can’t prove any of it. Especially, how such a thing can work with such a short life span. But it is what God showed me and He’s never lied to me. This MAGMA Force could very well been what allowed Jesus to walk on water. Heaven has technology, it is just way far ahead of us. We won’t know for sure until science can create muons fast enough to build such a device.
I do enjoy science; therefore the Lord has blessed me showing things like this. Maybe one of these days I’ll tell you what He taught me about: Dimensional Physics.
Now that is one real brain twister.

Last night I was asked to share about writing my book: Tell Them to Prepare - A New Look at the book of Revelation in one of the classes at Eagle Mountain International Church. It was a great opportunity to share the origins of the book, how Jesus asked if I would allow Him to teach me about the book of Revelation. About the problems of Traditional interpretation and how these traditions violated two scriptures, which created confusion. Then how the revelation of Jesus in this book brought restoration of that understanding, making it simple to understand.
Really enjoyed it.
Live in God's Peace.
