Knowledge, inspiration, and encouragement from a Christian perspective is my goal. I post a weekly commentary, which could be about world events or the events of my week. Other days I might share stories, recipes, homemaking tips, book reviews, political talk, biblical truth, or other blogs and websites I like. This blog is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.

Revelation 6 Amplified Bible (AMP)

Then I saw as the Lamb broke open one of the seven seals, and as if in a voice of thunder I heard one of the four living creatures call out, Come!
And I looked, and saw there a white horse whose rider carried a bow. And a crown was given him, and he rode forth conquering and to conquer.  { the ever increasing New World Order with its heads of the UN, NATO and war machine }
And when He broke the second seal, I heard the second living creature call out, Come!
And another horse came out, flaming red. And its rider was empowered to take the peace from the earth, so that men slaughtered one another; and he was given a huge sword.  { Middle Eastern civil wars,  Radical terrorism & Terror Organizations against Israel, Government chaos, ISIS or IS }
When He broke open the third seal, I heard the third living creature call out, Come and look! And I saw, and behold, a black horse, and in his hand the rider had a pair of scales (a balance).
And I heard what seemed to be a voice from the midst of the four living creatures, saying, A quart of wheat for a denarius [a whole day’s wages], and three quarts of barley for a denarius; but do not harm the oil and the wine!    { economic woes and food inflation }
When the Lamb broke open the fourth seal, I heard the fourth living creature call out, Come!
So I looked, and behold, an ashy pale horse  and its rider’s name was Death, and Hades (the realm of the dead) followed him closely. And they were given authority and power over a fourth part of the earth to kill with the sword and with famine and with plague (pestilence, disease) and with wild beasts of the earth.   { will spread to 1/4 of the earth,  Ebola , virus EV-D68,  plus 2 million people are infected annually with antibiotic resistant bacteria, and 23,000 die as a result. etc., etc., etc...............}
When the Lamb broke open the fifth seal, I saw at the foot of the altar the souls of those whose lives had been sacrificed for [adhering to] the Word of God and for the testimony they had borne.  { O T martyrs  thru and up to today where Christians and Jews are once again being slain for our testimony though out the Middle East and Asia and moving into Europe....... } 
10 They cried in a loud voice, O [Sovereign] Lord, holy and true, how long now before You will sit in judgment and avenge our blood upon those who dwell on the earth?
11 Then they were each given a [b]long and flowing and festive white robe and told to rest and wait patiently a little while longer, until the number should be complete of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed as they themselves had been. { the coming Great Tribulation those who refuse to worship and receive the beast and his mark....}
Faithful is He who sits on His throne in Heaven.....look onto Jesus our source of strength. ..... I, even I, am the LORD , And there is no savior besides Me. ( ISA 43:11 )
