We have argued that the killing of Christians in the conflict areas of the Middle East and Africa signifies that the Fifth Seal has been opened. In Revelation 6:9-11, it is written:
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: 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? 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 fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
According to one report, 90,000 Christians were killed for their faith in 2016. The same source also estimated that over 100,000 Christians were killed in 2015 for the same reason.
I believe that these numbers support our argument that the Fifth Seal has indeed been opened, and that we are now waiting for the Seal Seal. Though it may take another year or two before Christ opens the Sixth Seal, I believe that it could happen at anytime. The melting of the polar ice in both the Arctic and Antarctica is affecting the magma below the Earth’s crust, in ways that science has yet to fully understand. However, scientific research has shown that periods of intense polar ice melts are also periods of high global volcanism. The eruption of one of the world’s supervolcanos would surely serve as God’s manifestation of the opening of the Sixth Seal.
