Aloha, brothers and sisters in Yeshua.

 A while ago, when I was studying Revelation 6, I believe that God may have given me a revelation (no pun intended). Yeshua’s removal of the Sixth Seal (Revelation 6:12-17) clearly seems to induce the onset of a period of time that God’s Word calls the day of יהוה (aka the Day of the LORD — e.g., Joel 2 and Isaiah 13). Yeshua also seemed to speak of that coming time in Matthew 24:

 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other,” Matthew 24:29-31, NKJV.

 So, it seems that Yeshua will come to gather His people to Himself after a period of great tribulation (e.g., Matthew 24:15-28), at the onset of the day of יהוה (possibly pronounced Yahweh or Yahovah or something like that), just prior to pouring out His Wrath on those who have refused to receive Him as their Lord (that is Ruler or Commander or Leader or Boss or Master, etc.) and Savior. If this is a true revelation of God’s Word, then it seems to make the Book of Revelation and a number of related prophecies about some of the days ahead to “fit” better than they otherwise might.

For example, the first five seals that Yeshua removes (Revelation 6:1-11) seem to produce tribulation upon the earth caused by the ungodly workings antichrist (possibly the same person as the Islamic “messiah” or Mahdi), which could correspond to the period of great tribulation that Yeshua talked about (e.g., Matthew 24:15-28). Then Yeshua removes the Sixth Seal (Revelation 6:12-17) and comes back to gather together His elect (Matthew 24:29-31), while the rest of the world cowers in fear (perhaps due to the lies regarding the true Yeshua that Isalm spreads and has already begun to spread). After that, a great multitude who came out of the great tribulation appears before Yeshua and The Throne (Revelation 7:9-17). After that God’s Wrath seems to be poured out upon the remainder of His Creation (i.e., those who refused to receive Him) — Revelation 8, Revelation 9, and Revelation 16. Then Yeshua returns and destroys the armies of those who continued to live in rebellion against Him (Revelation 19).

Now, the reason for Yeshua’s advice to watch and to pray to be counted worthy to escape all of the things that will come to pass (after He gathers His elect to Himself) and to stand before the Son of Man (i.e., Him) seems clear (Luke 21:34-38).

 I was quite grateful at the time that I was given this understanding, and I suspect that it is True. There still appear to be some nonlinearities in the flow of the Book of Revelation, but those appear to me to be primarily interspersed expositions of other sections of the Book.

 Have a great weekend.

 May God bless you and keep you, and Shabbat shalom,
