Overview - The Sixth Seal
Under the Sixth Seal, the foolish virgin and also Israel are purged during the tribulation. And the earth, moon, stars, and all nature will be purged prior to the Millennium.
Seals 400:5-401:1 "It's checking-up time... And if you would place it... This is the time of the investigation judgment ... we will get that on the ... vials. And we will find out on that investigating judgment ... just before the woes went forth ... And the three angels that struck the earth crying, you know, "Woe, woe, woe, unto the inhabitants of the earth."
... the Church is done gone. These things are the tribulation period. And I think it ought to be truly settled in every believer's heart that this Church never takes the tribulation period... You put the church there, but not the Bride. The Bride has gone on, because see, She has not one sin — not a thing against Her."
408:2-409:1 "There's no more Blood on the altar. The sacrifice has been removed; and there's nothing but smoke and lightning and judgment in there ... The mediatorial work has been finished from over on the Throne ...
John said, "I beheld when He had opened the Sixth Seal, there was a great earthquake." Then all nature was interrupted ... the sun went black, and the moon wouldn't give its light, and the stars shook and fell ... at the time of the opening of this Sixth Seal ... after the announcing of those martyrs...
... the Bride is gone ... This is a time of tribulation of purification of the church ... Not the Bride...
418:1 "comparing what Jesus said in Matthew 24, and what the Revelator here opened up in the Sixth Seal, is just exactly — and Jesus was speaking of the tribulation period."
418:7 "Jesus omitted the teaching of the Seventh Seal... He goes right on with parables now, after that. And John omitted the Seventh Seal... It's not even written, "... there was just silence in heaven..."
422:2-3 "that false prophet and caused the children of God to err, and married Moabite women into Israel and caused adultery. And he did the same thing in that same age on the journey on the road to the Promised Land we are on.
The false prophet come right around and married and called into the Protestant church and caused denominations — just exactly what they did back there. But little old Israel moved right on the same. She railed in the wilderness for a long time, and all them old fighters had to die off, but she went right on into the Promised Land ... Now we are getting down to that age right now..."
429:4-8 "These great happenings, to nature, has happened before. The sun became as black as sackcloth of hair. Now remember, that does not happen in the Gentiles. It's Israel! ... it's calling out the 144,000 ... in this tribulation."
... let's turn to Exodus 10:21-23 ... when Israel was coming out ...
... Moses stretched forth his hand towards heaven; and there came a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days ... They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but... the children of Israel had light in their dwellings."
429:9-430:2 "Now here He is, bringing them out of the Roman hands, where they had made their covenant ... plague this group of Gentiles ... the dragon, Satan, was wrought (that's angry) with the woman (the Jew, Israel), and he spurted water from his mouth (thickness and multitudes of people) that went to make war with the remnant of the woman's seed ... Rome sends her army after the remnant."
... The first time they're in His hands, when He's delivered them out, the sun turned black as sackcloth. Now, this is the second time, the end of the tribulation period."
431:4 "Daniel 12 says that everyone that was found written in the Book would be delivered. Here God is about to deliver His second son, Israel, after the tribulation ... just exactly the way He did down in Egypt."
432:6-433:7 "the Sixth Seal, is completely an interruption of nature.
It's the prophets the other side of the Rapture. With the power of God, the Word of God, they just condemn nature. They can send earthquakes, turn the moon into blood, the sun can go down or anything at their command.
If any man hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth — the Word ... in Revelation 19, we see the same thing, and a great Sword proceed from His mouth - Word. Christ coming, and He slays enemies with It.
These have power to shut the heaven that it rained not in the days of their prophecy ... how long did ... Elijah, close the heavens for? [Congregation replies: three and one-half years—Ed.] There you are, exactly! How longs Daniel's seventieth, last part of the seventy weeks?"
436:2-437:5 "Isaiah, the prophet, seen this Sixth Seal open and spoke of it ... the whole plan of redemption lays under these Seals... Jesus saw it [Matthew 24]. We find it typed out in Jacob. We find it typed out in Egypt. We see it typed out at the cross.
I've got a whole lot more prophets wrote down here, too. Let's go back here to Isaiah, the 13th chapter of Isaiah ... when He's cleansing the land with tribulations."
445:6-7 "The Lamb might at any time ... come forth from the Throne of God where the sacrifice laid, and then it's over. There's no more hopes for the world; she's finished. Then she goes into frustrations of great spasms of earthquakes and great shakings like it was at the resurrection.
And as Christ rose from the grave, when the saints rise, the same thing will take place."
449:4-6 "[Matthew 24] Now remember, He stopped right there ... He never said anything about the Seventh. He said the First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth, but He stopped there ... Then He starts on parables.
He's answering them three questions: "What will be these signs, and what will be the sign of Your coming, what will be the sign of the end of the world?" And the sixth one there was the end of the world. And the sounding of the Seventh Angel raised up the hands and swore by Him that lives forever and ever that time shall be no more.
The earth is giving birth to a new one. It's over, and here we are right here at the door."
