Noel Davy | The Fourth Seal has been opened

Hundreds of thousands will die from COVID-19, famine, and armed conflict.

As the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) continues to devastate most countries with fear and death worldwide, the Fourth Seal, which is now opened as recorded in the Bible in the Book of Revelation chapter 6 verses 7 and 8, gives details.

The Apostle John, while in the Isle of Patmos where he was exiled, wrote the book of Revelation as instructed by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ of things that must shortly come to pass which was witnessed by his angel.

The Apostle John, also known as ‘John the Divine’, was told to write all that he saw and heard after, which they were sent to the seven churches in Asia. Giving details of what he saw and heard, John wrote in Revelation Chapter 6 verse 7 that when the Fourth Seal was opened, “I heard the Fourth Beast say ‘come and see’.” Continuing in verse 8, the Apostle John further said, “and I looked and behold a Pale Horse, and his name that sat on him was DEATH and HELL followed with him, and power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth to kill with the sword, with hunger, with death and with the beast of the earth.”

As an apostle of Jesus Christ, who has been endowed with multiple spiritual gifts, it was evident to me – and others who track Bible prophecies – from mid-2018 that the opening of the Fourth Seal was very near due to certain practices that were being done and pursued on Earth by individuals.

It should also be noted that the opening of the Fourth Seal gives DEATH authority to kill a fourth of the earth’s population while HELL has become the custodian of the dead.

As of March this year, the world population stood at approximately 7.8 billion. A fourth of this is some 1.9 million, who could die in this onslaught, which is currently under way by coronavirus, famine, armed conflict and all other ailments that currently affect human beings.

Jesus told his disciples in Matthew Chapter 24 verse 21 that “a time is coming which for them shall be great tribulation such as not seen since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be”. And speaking about the severity caused by the opening of the Fourth Seal, Jesus told his disciples in Matthew Chapter 24 verse 22 that “except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved but for the elect sake those days shall be shortened”.

To fast-track this statement, please read Revelation Chapter 20 verse 13 and 15, which states: “And the sea gave up the dead which were in it and DEATH and HELL delivered up the dead which were in them and they were judged everyone according to their works while Death and Hell were cast in the lake of fire”.

BAFFLING EVENTS

In putting this article together, I chronicled certain events that baffled mankind over the centuries:

n Noah was ordered to build an ark while he preached for 120 years, and the world did not harken to him, resulting in the world being destroyed by a massive flood.

n When Lot told his sons-in-law that God was going to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, they scoffed at him. Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed the following day.

n Five hundred years before Jesus was born, the Prophet Isaiah, known as the eagle-eyed prophet, prophesied that a virgin shall be with child and she shall bring forth a son and his name shall be called Emmanuel.

n When Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, only the wise men knew, and later, the angels made it known to the shepherds. The world did not know.

IT HAS BEGUN

As an apostle, I want to say that due to the shutdown of borders and restrictive measures being implemented worldwide, leaders and governments in a number of countries will become less mild and adopt a more brutal approach as they will administer tough laws. This is so that the world will take on a more brutish approach in order to implement their authority. In other words, that type of mild courtesy that was there will now lead to a sterner administration.

This might be unrealistic to some individuals, however, with the departure of the Church by the Rapture anytime now. The anti-Christ’s governments and regimes are now adopting tougher measures worldwide as the tribulation kicks in. For example, most countries have begun using the same measures to fight the coronavirus, which includes the severing of a number of human rights.

As the Fourth Seal opens, entrenched laws, courtesies, and rights will tumble as the world moves into the tribulation. And although unseen or unknown, the hidden postures of the Beast are emerging globally.

Those with spiritual eyes and the gift of discerning of the spirits will see that a new world order has been ushered in as most countries and governments will seal their borders and try to protect their citizens by not allowing those who were formerly friends yesterday to participate as friends today.

This to those who are spiritual, who will realise that the tribulation era has begun.

Every country is doing the same thing but in a different manner.

It is strange.
