James 1:19 "Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry."
When talking with someone don't be the first to get your point across. The Lord taught me a long time ago to keep my mouth shut, even when I have a word from the Lord. Everyone wants to get their two cents out there for everyone to hear, but they rarely take the time to listen. Just because you think the Lord has given you insight into a matter doesn't mean you should say anything. Keep quiet, let the Lord minister to you while you listen to the other person and when they are done, share your insight in Love. You never know when the Spirit is going to give you additional insight. I can't tell you how many times other people have lost out on a word of wisdom from the Lord because they wouldn't stop talking and start listening.
The Lord is always listening to what you have to say. But He's not going to talk until you stop talking and start listening!
Live in God's Peace!
The previous four seals have all flowed together into this fifth seals and what happens in this seal is answered in the sixth seal.
Seal Five – Martyr’s Prayer
Event Sequence # 12 (Find in the Chart)
Martyr’s Prayer Revelation 6:9-11
With the fifth seal, (6:9-11) we see saints who were slain for their testimony of the word of God. The word “slain” is the same word used with the red horse, which takes peace and causes men to kill each other. These were slain for the written word (logos) of God and executed for their faith. These are most likely those killed because of the previous four seals. They receive white robes and told to rest until the fullness of those killed is completed. This fullness is also part of the closing out of the Times of the Gentiles.
There is also another component to these martyr’s prayers and that is the death to self in an intercessors call for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Those who have given their lives in prayer calling out to God for the manifest presence of the Holy Spirit one last time before the Rapture and Tribulation, and they are going to be answered in the next seal.
Don’t miss the next post on the Sixth Seal. That is where it really starts getting interesting.
