[hos] the noise [phone] of thunder, [bronte] one [heis] of [ek] the four [tessares] beasts [zoon] saying, [lego] Come [erchomai] and [kai] see. [blepo]     KJV-Interlinear

Begin study:

 

 

The seals on the scroll, represent
the security of the details of future events.  On the scroll is recorded the details of those
events. The scroll was written in
eternity past and was not to be revealed to anyone until the end times. 

 

Our Church Age is the period of the end times (a
lengthy period of time – 1987 years thus far, and counting), while the
Tribulation is the period of the last days (a shorter time frame – seven years).

 

The mention of the four living beasts and what they
represent in contrast with human effort, is the point
in this chapter.

 

Recall that the faces on the four beasts were the
lion, ox, man, and eagle. Each representing several things, but primarily strength or majesty
for the lion, and then service and endurance for the ox, and then vision or far
sightedness for the eagle, and finally reason for the man.

 

And though each of these beasts are
not identified, the broken seal of which they speak serve to contrast the
contents of the seal, with each of the beasts.

 

The beasts, or more correctly named, the essence of
life, are from God. The contents
revealed from behind the seals, are from humanity.  While man tries to imitate or surpass God (Satan
wanted to be ‘like the most high’), the revelation of the final days of history
will demonstrate that mans efforts will only lead to massive suffering and
doom.

 

The first of the seals is removed, and the first
living beast speaks and sounds like thunder.

 

Thunder is representative of several things.  First it represents Gods presence. Second it
represents overwhelming power. Third it
is an indicator of a storm coming or already here.  And fourth, it represents a force that is beyond
your control.

 

The first living beast speaks, and says, ‘Come.’  And this simply means, the
end has begun
. Come and see it.

 

When you go to a play, and are standing out in the
lobby, you will usually hear a sound, perhaps music, or perhaps an announcement
that the play is about to begin or resume.

 

We have already seen the preparation in heaven in
chapters 4-5. Now, planet earth is
ready, and now, with the first broken seal, the final act of human rule begins.

 

 

End of study

 

 

 




 

Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
