Hey guys, I have a thought and I want to share it with you, and I want to know what you think of the book REVELATION? The four horse men of the Apocalypse? 7 trumpets 7 angels 7 uhmm... disasters? I forgot.. haha The calamities and destruction. and more.. You think it's gonna happen? are you scared of it? you think it's true? I dunno, I just think that it's like Nostradamus, He figure out what will gonna happen on future.. I've seen a program in Discovery channel, People who believe in him and people who don't. The guy who doesn't believe in him explains that, It's like playing in a casino, I dunno what you call that game, You pick a number place you bet throw a dice in a roulette.. When you spin and spin and spin, no matter what you do and how long you wait the number you bet is gonna come out. I dunno but It's kinda creepy and cool at the same time. haha ^_^

Hi tyronie4cash, Yes, it will happen. (I'm of the school that feels chapter 4 and beyond deals with the future.) Yes, it is true. Scared? I used to be. In fact, I had read the Revelation of Jesus Christ four times before committing to Christ. However, I am no longer scared. Either the Church will be removed (raptured) before that time, or if He wills we go through, He will keep those who keep His Word. And, this is no gamble. It is going to happen. Israel was restored as a nation in 1948. The clock indeed is ticking.

I've read the book several times. I love it, if you understand its text compared to other prophetic texts which speak of the same end of days that is to come sometime in the future. The most mysterious part of these prophesies is that it is unclear the exact time frame of which these things are to happen, and also in what order they are to take place in. One could say that during the seven seals in revelations also the seven trumpets are taking place, or that one of these events come before the other, or in a certain pattern. Some could say that these things have taken place already, and some could argue that they are still to take place. My method of study on this topic is compare and contrast revelation to other prophetic writing to see which ones could possible related to the others, from there use process of elimination to cancel out the unrealistic possibilities and those which dont have any other writing to back up their validity. This process is a little more complex, but I think I gave the basics to begin your studies into this matter. Please get back with me on some sources of research you used, maybe you could direct me to some new sources of information. I will do my best to do the same.

Great post davidmcneal22 ! For those that really want to know, by the Holy Spirit, The Revelation of Jesus Christ draws from Isaiah, Zechariah, Ezekiel, and Daniel. The spirit of the world rises up against this Book since satan's doom is clearly seen therein.

True that it has all been fortold and is true
