The Sixth Seal
It can be argued that Death and Hades have been set loose and are laying claim to their quarter of the world. We have previously cited a UN report on refugees and referencing that report, it would seem that a quarter of the world is now engulfed in conflicts that are causing local populations to flee. It is based on that report that we speculate that the fourth seal has indeed been opened. If this is indeed the case, then things will only worsen in those regions as famine and pestilence will make their appearance.
The conflict in the Middle East has affected millions of people, and great suffering to the Arab people. However, in that chaos, ISIS and other militant groups have opportunistically taken to slaughtering those Christians who reside in the conflict areas. Since the earliest days of the Church, there have been Christian communities living in many of the countries of the Middle East. A new wave a martyrdom is occurring and one cannot help but wonder if the 5th seal has been opened —
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 fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
It could very well be the opening of the 6th seal, that we can indeed receive confirmation on where we stand in the Revelation time line. I have argued that a major eruption of a supervolcano would create the conditions that will occur at the opening of the 6th seal —
15 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;
17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
There has not been a major eruption of a supervolcano since the start of written history, the last being tens of thousands of years ago. However, I would argue that such an eruption would indeed blacken the sun and turn the moon red, and it block out the stars, and cause the rich and powerful to flee to their bunkers in the mountains. I again bring out this argument given more warnings from NASA — this time on the major acceleration in the melting of land ice in Greenland —
Recent scientific research has show that there is a strong historical correlation between periods of major melting of Arctic land ice and a strong surge in global volcanic activity. Though most articles are concerned about rising ocean levels in relation to this issue, our focus is on the prophecies of Revelation, and in relation to this issue, the opening of the 6th seal. The Arctic is warming rapidly — at a rate much higher than the global average — and this could bring to the world a high level of volcanic activity. We believe it can also bring about the manifestation of the 6th seal.
The US military is doing its part in contributing to the death and mayhem in the world, and it is looking to up the ante — http://www.wsj.com/articles/pentagon-to-add-drone-flights-1439768451
US drones have reduced the risks and costs for America to kill people in the far reaches of the globe, and it looks like they will being doing even more killing by remote control — Schwarzenegger was really ahead of his time with his Terminator movies. America is playing whack-a-mole with its drone strikes, but it seems that more moles are surfacing — so they will be increasing their whacking by 50%. The question is does America only worsen the Sunni-Shiite-Israeli-Christian hate fest by its ongoing slaughter of Muslims?
The technology required for the creation of a cashless society is ready. The use of credit cards, debit cards, and cell phones for financial transactions has resulted in the creation of the infrastructure needed for the elimination of cash from our economy. The children of the Beast are now working hard to lay out the rational for the implementation of the cashless economy. Their basic argument (i.e. excuse) is that a cashless society will make it impossible for individuals to evade taxes (as they ignore the tax evasion of international corporations) and it will put a stop to many criminal activities (like buying marijuana?). However, we know that these are merely excuses, as the elimination of cash would mean that the government would be able to have total control over every aspect of the economy, and thus have the ability to control anyone would needed to buy or sell any good or service in such a society. As we have argued, the Beast will be a tyrant, and he will overthrow any remaining vestiges of democracy when he rises to power. The creation of a cashless society will serve more than one end for the children of the Beast.
