Fifth Seal – Fifth Year
Spirit of the Martyred Saints
Book of Revelation Chapter 6:9-11
Rev. 6:9 “And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:”
Rev. 6:10 “And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?”
Rev. 6:11 “And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.”
Being that we are now under the Fifth Seal, don’t forget that it represents the fifth year of the seven years we have been studying. The people who will play their part at this period of time will be the Martyred Saints who will be killed in the first part of the seven years. They are asking God how much longer they have to wait before His judgment will be on those who killed them. God is then letting them know they have to wait a little longer, for there will still be many more fellow servants killed, before the seven years are up. When all of the Scriptures are fulfilled, which will be a little more than two years; God will then have His Day, “The Day of the Lord”.
Remember the story of the ten virgins, how fifty percent of them were ready and fifty percent will be left behind. The Martyred Saints will be those who will be left behind. They were lukewarm. Didn’t Christ say “He would rather you be Hot or Cold, anything else He would spew you out of His mouth”? These people evidently got warmed up and took a stand for Christ. The people who will still be alive will need to get ready for their rapture at the end of these seven years. There will also be many people who will accept Christ during these seven years who also will be killed because of their new faith in Christ. At that time, all false doctrines will come alive, especially the doctrine of the Beast. The churches will have a hard time surviving because the main body will be gone.
It will be hard for Christians who believe in Jesus Christ to stand strong, because Satan’s power will become great during these seven years. But Scriptures show there will be many who will survive who won’t be killed. While John watched this scene from heaven during these seven years, he saw the souls of the ones who would be killed and recorded what they said. They asked: (How much longer will it be before God brings judgment upon those who had killed them?). They did not know, because they were not close to the Word; they were not ready. At this time they will not be judged from the book of life.
At the end of the seventh year will then be the day God’s wrath will avenge them. At that time the books will be open for judgment and they will receive their white robes along with all of the saints who will be taken at the end. In the mean time they will be under the altar, in God’s Grace.
Let’s refresh our memory again on the following scriptures.
In Dan.7:8. it tells when the rapture will take place by showing when the Anti-Christ first came on the scene at the beginning of these seven years.
Dan. 7:8 “I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were the eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.”
Now, look at the next two Scriptures as to what is taking place at the same time.
Dan. 7:9 “I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.”
Dan. 7:10 “A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.”
A rapture just took place, Right!
Now look in Rev.5:11. John sees the same scene as Daniel did. These scriptures are important to remember, so that is why we are reading them again.
Rev. 5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beast and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands.
Both men describe the harvest rapture that will take place right before peace is declared for Israel and Palestine. The Ancient of Days is God, Jesus Christ. Now, notice how the Books were open right after they were raptured. They will also receive their white robes at that period of time. There will be no judgment for these Martyred Saints that are spoken of in this fifth year until there is a catching away. The next one will be at the end of the seven years. The souls at harvest time, at the beginning of the seven years, will not have to wait to be judged with the end ones. These saints are “under the altar”, meaning judgment has not come to them as yet; but they will receive their white robes. Note that “under the altar” means they will be absent from the body, but will be present with the Lord.
Now let’s go to the 6th Seal, Sixth Year and find the meaning of (666) man number.
