Many think that we are living in the last days, and if you read your Bible and follow the news, it seems as if the signs are all appearing. I watched a video the other day that claimed to show the pale rider from the "fourth seal" in Revelations. This was a video that was of the protesters in Egypt on the day that the worst of the killing was done. I don't know if the video is real or faked, but as a believer, I have the feeling that we are on the edge of some great change.
Revelation 6:7 When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, "Come and see."
8 And I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, whith hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.
The Middle East is pretty much in flux at this time, with a lot of turmoil and protests going on. Is this the "fourth of the earth", that is mentioned? The protests are still going on, and don't appear to be inclined to stop in the near future. How long will the Egyptian army stand by and watch? Which side will they decide to support? We know that there are a lot of food shortages in both Egypt and the rest of the Middle East, is this another sign?
If you believe in the Bible, what is your thought on what is happening? We have heard that there are groups here in the U.S., that are egging on the protesters. What is their purpose? What will they gain from the disruption? These same people are the same that seem determined to remake the world in their image. Is this a part of the fulfillment of the "last days?"
Even if the video is faked, does the violence itself fulfill the prophecy? Where will you be standing if this is a sign of the "Second Coming of Jesus Christ?" Will your name be written in the book? Revelation 10:2-10
