OPEN HEAVENS DEVOTIONAL TUESDAY 24TH MAY 2022 (THE SEVEN SEALS 6)
TOPIC: The Seven Seals 6”
MEMORISE: Matthew 24:29
“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:”
READ: Revelation 6:12-17 (KJV)
12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
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;
16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
As the sixth seal was broken, the earth shook. The Bible says there was a great earthquake and the sun became black like a sackcloth of hair. On that day, the Bible says the moon will be as blood and the stars of heaven will fall unto the earth. Heaven will roll away like a scroll and the earthquake will move entire mountains and islands out of their place. Many prophets of old, even Jesus Christ, prophesied about the day (Joel 2:31, Isaiah 34:4, Zephaniah 1:14, Matthew 24:29).
What John saw as stars falling to the earth could be either of two things. Many Bible Scholars say it could be wars of missiles which are already being prepared for by some super-powers. That is the war they say will be fought with missiles. When the missiles are falling, it will look like stars are falling from the sky. It could also be that John saw real stars falling to the earth. If you do a little research, you would see that we have had cases in the past where asteroids fell from space to the earth. When asteroids are falling, they usually burn as they fall and burn out before they get to the earth. Some big and harmful asteroids have hit the earth in the past. Now whether it is missiles or actual space elements falling onto the earth, they will be so many that anyone who looks to the sky will see the sky as if it is rolling away. At the same time, there will be such a great earthquake that mountains and islands will be displaced. May you not be on earth when it happens, in the name of Jesus.
In verses 15-17, we see that great men, including kings, will run to hide in dens and caves. There will be no ‘difference between the king and the slave on that day. The Bible says the kings, great and rich men, captains of industry, mighty men as well as bondmen will go to hide in dens and caves. This tells you straightaway that the positions that you are pursuing now will mean absolutely nothing at the end. At the end, titles will not matter. The poor and the rich will burn in hell together if they don’t repent. The madam of the house and the maid will be right beside each other burning in hell if they both don’t repent. The CEO and the gateman will both be suffering from God’s wrath if they don’t make it to heaven. A word is enough for the wise.
Forget about all the cares of this world and focus on making it to heaven.
