Has Revelations begun?

At one time the sermons I heard in church were focused on getting ready for life after we left earth. Our needs in this life were not ignored but it was not the focus. Now the sermons are about our life now and very little if at all about preparing for the next life with Christ. Churches are now sponsoring money management seminars, self help seminars. Every other sermon is about obedience to the rulers of this earth and the rest of the sermons are on catering to the here and now.
The focus of the church is way off base; we no longer focus on Christ but on our creature comforts. We can certainly see the apostate church in the end times that we were warned about. Even though we were warned about it we still fell into Satan’s snare. Hitler recruited pastors to help control the people before things become bad, they were told that in difficult times it was the duty of the church to assist the government, reciting Romans to back it up.

FEMA Recruiting Pastors To Prepare For Martial Law

Secret FEMA Plan To Use Pastors as Pacifiers in Preparation For Martial Law

Revelation 6:1 - 6:2 - "...When the Lamb had opened the first of the seven seals, I heard the first of the four beasts say with a thundering voice, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a white horse; and he that sat on him had a bow: and there was given unto him a crown, and he departed as conqueror and to conquest."

The start of the real troubles on this earth begins with the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse. The first horseman comes on a white horse carrying a Bow and is given a crown. It is believed that this is the man who will soon be the Antichrist.

- White horse signifies peace, this will only be rhetoric and a false platform for as you
will see he brings everything but peace to the earth. But all will believe him.
- The rider carries a bow, showing that he will have great power; military, position, and
- He is given a crown; he becomes ruler of a country.
- Conqueror, clearly his words won’t match his actions, he comes in spouting peace but
causes unrest

Revelation 6:4 - "And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword."

The second horse is red and the rider has the power to take peace from the earth, and was given a great sword

- Red has always signified war, after the soon to be Antichrist gains power wars begin.
- A great sword, the military might will be large and powerful

Revelation 6:5 - 6:6 - “And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.’”

- Black indicting decay and death.
- Pair of balances
A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny. In Bibletimes laborers received a denarius, or one penny, as an entire day's wages (seeMatthew 20:2). A measure would be sixteen of our American ounces. Think of it! An

entire day's wages for a loaf of bread!
- What about the oil and wine? These items were luxuries in Bible times, and we find
that there are those who still possess them during the Tribulation.

Revelation 6:7 - 6:8 - “And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a pale green horse; and he that sat on him was called Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, and that they (the four horsemen) should kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.”

- A pale horse represents disease and death, disease, famine, war, catastrophes,
weather. Seems to combine all of the traits of the preceding horseman and then some.
One-fourth of the world's population dies through his brutality; more than one billion,
seven hundred fifty million people at today's population figures.

There is reason to believe that the first horseman is in place already. There is a lot of talk of peace but very little tangible evidence of peace.

The next phase that the bible tells us that is coming would be war, its not too hard to see the possibilities for war in the near future.

N. Korea Statement Raises Worry of a Missile Test

South America on brink of war

Russia's interest in South America should alert the U.S

Muslims 'about to take over Europe'

There doesn’t seem to be an area of the world that isn’t under threat of war, both old grievances and new. All the while that everyone is saying peace, peace; the greater are the instances of war. Even to the point of nuclear confrontation. While there have always been wars, never has the widespread instances of flare-ups or the capabilities as great as now, not even in the WWII.

The next horseman brings famine and death. Again look at the headlines.

Famine spreads across Africa

Indonesia: Famine kills over 50 in Papua

The World's Growing Food-Price Crisis / In depth / Rising cost of food

Genetically Modified GM POISON FOOD

Famines are world wide, weather changes, or diseases are wiping out crops. Now I hear farmers saying that planting crops will cost almost double what they will receive at harvest. Many are opting not to plant crops this spring. Genetically modified crops are not providing the nutrition as natural crops. Playing God and manipulating the genetics of life around us has had consequences that we do not yet fully realize. It has been shown that the nutrients in the GM crops are changed enough that our bodies are rejecting them as not nutritious. So even those who have food to eat are dying from malnutrition, many of today’s diseases are linked to our bodies not receiving the nutrients or vitamins to fight disease. Many of us suffer from scurvy but this is not being recognized as such.

I think we can see how we are well on our way to a world wide famine, even places that have lots of food will suffer from malnutrition. If our food is not providing the minerals, and vitamins our bodies need we will still die of malnutrition through disease or other ways.

Food prices are rising to levels that many cannot feed their families. Even families that are working are lacking in food due to living costs being so high.

The forth horseman brings a combination of the entire four horseman but even more so. Wars, weather changes (not due to global warming….global warming is a fraud) greed, control, disease and so on.

For those of you that believe the global warming scare.

Overall, the polar ice caps are growing - not shrinking

Gateway Pundit: Antarctica Ice Cap Growth Reaches Record High

Why are the icecaps growing on both poles??

Off topic but be aware. The Carbon tax is a tax on breathing, they finally figured out how to tax the air we breathe. Without CO2 we would have no O2.

Throughout the release of the horseman everything on earth progressively gets worse. Whether the first horseman has been released or not this earth will grow progressively worse. Satan’s generals have decided that Christ’s return is near and they will no longer hid or sneak around, 2009 will be a difficult year living expenses, food, crisis, weather events, monetary collapse. Some of these began unraveling last year as I warned in Feb 2008, what began last year will accelerate this year. There will be signs of others beginning this year. We don’t know God’s time line; we don’t know when Christ will retrieve us from this earth. We do know that it will be before the worst of it hits but we will be tested one final time.

In 2009 watch for economies to fall, watch for wars, watch for rising prices, if farmers cannot plant crops due to expenses then watch for scarcity of food. Will this all happen this year is unknown but it will happen.

Where do you stand? Are you in fear? Are you concerned with money? These are concerns that will end, but your eternal life will not end. Make the decision for God now. Stand firm on morals, and doctrine, now is not the time to try new approaches to Christ. Or to "change the way we do church", as one snake oil salesman states. Good intentions will not get you into heaven.

If you are uncertain and want to commit renewed to Christ say this prayer

Lord forgive my sins and shortcomings, I am sorry and repent of my sins. I commit myself to you and praise you for the gift of eternal life. I believe in your death on the cross and resurrection, virgin birth, and coming return. I ask you to take control of my life and aid me in living for you. Guide me from false doctrine and false prophets; I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and savior. Amen.
