The Good News is that God is the Judge and the biblical concept of judges is that they were deliverers as seen in the book of Judges where Gideon, Samson and others delivered Israel.

Daniel means ‘God is my Judge’ and we see that Daniel or his friends were delivered from potentially life or death situations in chapters 1-6 of his book. And God has a plan for us, but like Daniel, we have to be willing to go to the lion’s den to experience His deliverance.

When kings, rich and mighty men hide themselves in mountains and dens and say, Who shall be able the stand?, the answer is given in Revelation 7—those who are sealed, and the seals of Revelation 6 have a contextual link to topics that have a 7-fold emphasis as a mark of end-time truth. Here’s a brief introduction:

In the 1st seal, Rev 6:1 thunder is linked to God’s name as seen in John 12:28,29 and Rev 14:1,2. God’s name was emphasized 7 times in the 10 Commandments, but translators supplanted His name with a generic title, LORD (bad idea). His name means protection for those who call on it, but not 1 in 100 know it.

In the 2nd seal, peace is taken from the earth, and when God made a covenant with Israel, it was the same idea because God said He would drive out the Canaanite in Exod 34:10,11. Bible covenants were linked to 7’s, like the 7 ewes that Abraham gave to Abimelech in Gen 21, and the 7 annual sabbaths that God gave to Israel in their covenant, seen in Leviticus 23.

In the 3rd seal, famine reflects failure to keep God’s laws. “They have transgressed the laws¦ therefore the curse has devoured the earth. Isa 24:5,6. God gave to Israel statutes and judgments that have a 7-fold emphasis in Ezek 20:11-24 where they are linked to sabbaths. They required a minimum of government. This was the wisdom of God’s laws, Deut 4:8.

The imagery of death and hell (4th seal) reminds us of when black death, bubonic plague and smallpox decimated Europe physically as the papacy decimated it spiritually by its Inquisition and martyring 30-50 million according to conservative historians. The truth most abolished by the papacy (clued in Dan 7:25) was the changing of Sabbath to Sunday as a mark of their authority when no Bible support can be given for it

In the 5th seal, those slain for the Word of God remind us that 7 times Christ said we would be hated for His name which is not a derivative of Zeus. He said He came in His Father’s name (Jn 5:43). If the Father’s name were Zeus, they said it right in Italy” when they prounounce it Yea Zeus, but Zeus was the savior god of Greek mythology who saved everyone, with no need of repentance. Such salvation is a myth. Y’shua will have all who come to Him with a desire for repentance. The popular name is from Society of Jesus (Jesuits) as they infiltrated Bible translations.

In the 6th seal, the focus is a hiding place and 7 times God told Abraham He would give him land, and Paul said, If you are Christ’s, you are Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise (of land) and the New Covenant Promise that we MUST have, is linked to that land, Ezek 36:24-28. We laugh at Israel because they were afraid to go because of giants; but giant problems now too! This is another way of saying, we have to be willing to go to the lion’s den like Daniel in order to see God’s deliverance!
Why must we be willing to go to the land of the covenant? In the Bible, Israel and Judah comprised God’s people and speaking of the “latter day,” He said that He “will bring again the captivity of Israel and Judah and cause them to return to the land that He gave to their fathers…I am with you to save you though I make a full end of all other nations…in the latter day you shall consider it.” Jeremiah 30:3,11,24. I don’t want to be here when the full end is made. The Ameica that we’ve known is gone, and it’s not coming back.

Why this spring? Believers in a rapture were disappointed last fall when the Great Sign of Rev 12 came and went with no judgment or rapture, but we shouldn’t expect God to put the “Bridge Out” sign on the bridge—He gives it as a warning so we can correct our course. The 9-month pregnancy imagery points to this spring from last September in this undeniable sign from God,

For a better understanding of related Bible truth, God Bless America? offers insight to impending events. God judged Egypt and took Israel to a covenant, later saying, “I am married to you,” Jer 3:14. This gives new meaning to the wedding parables further explained in the book, available in print (and ebook–free this Saturday) at or in pdf at
