Prophesy  of  the Final  Judgment

    The prophecy of the final judgment is spoken about in many places in the Old Testament.  In the
New Testament Jesus uses parables to tell us that there will be a day of reckoning or judgment that
will come to all mankind.  Then as we come to Revelation and the Great White Throne Judgment, as is
spoken about in Revelation 20, we realize that -- all of mankind throughout all of history will be at that
Great White Throne Judgment and judgment will be pronounced upon all mankind.  Every person will
be judged individually according to what is written in the books.  

Those who are part of the family of God, having called upon the name of the Lord, will be judged
according to the book of life.  Their names having been written in the book of life, by Jesus Christ,
exempts them from the judgment of condemnation.  

All whose names are not written in the book of life will be judged guilty according to their sins which
they have committed as written in the books.  Their guilt will be declared and their judgment carried out
as they are cast into the lake of fire.  

This is certainly a most drastic of events that affects every human being who has ever lived on planet
earth.  As such, it is reasonable to conclude that God would not only warn of such an event, but would
indeed give details as to that judgment at the Great White Throne.  

An analysis of Biblical prophecy:

"The Lord your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brethren.  Him you
shall hear."  
Deuteronomy 18: 15.

In the context of the above verse Moses has come near to the end.  He is writing a summary /
conclusion to the five books of the law and is giving instructions for that time when he will no longer be
there as their leader.  The people are told some of the things which they will experience and what they
shall do as they enter the Promised Land.  

5 points from Deut. 18: 1 - 22:

** The tribe of Levi shall be priests for the nation, without inheritance -- to be provided for as priests.

** They "shall not learn to follow the abominations of those nations", which they dispossess.  

** "The Lord your God will raise up" / call a prophet and they shall listen to him or be held accountable.   

** The prophet will be held accountable -- the prophecy must prove to be from God -- totally true.  

** When a prophet "speaks in the name of the Lord" and the "thing does not happen or come to pass"
-- "that profit shall die".  

"Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare; before they sprang forth I tell
you of them."  
Isaiah 42: 9.  

In the context of this scripture is; the prophesy of the coming Messiah Jesus Christ, whom God calls
"My Servant", "My Elect One in whom My soul delights" and, "I have put My Spirit upon Him."  (42: 1).  
Then in the following verses we are given a short explanation of the character of and the things that
Jesus Christ will do while on earth.

In verse 9, following that prophecy in verses 1 - 8, we are given a short, concise, and revealing insight
into prophecy.  In this explanation of prophecy we are given three insights / understanding of prophecy.  
(As I see it).

** In the first phrase it says that former prophecies were given and they came to pass.  (Proof of the
truth of the prophecy).

** In the second phrase we are told that the Lord will declare new prophecies in the future.  

** In the third phrase the Lord promises to tell us -- prophesy of important events to come.

Isaiah gives us numerous prophecies / insights into the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ.  Then in the
context and somewhat in a conclusion to these prophecies, he tells us that there are other important
prophecies to come.  Considering the importance of the coming of Jesus Christ, I believe that we can
conclude that he is referring to other prophecies and events of great importance to mankind, yet to

Also – in Amos is an explanation that assures coming prophesy.  

“Surely the Lord God does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His

servants the prophets”. Amos 3: 7  

And also:

"For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."  Revelation 19: 10b.  

Definitions of this scripture:

"Testimony of Jesus" --- what Jesus knows, and experienced --- declared.  

“Spirit of prophecy" --- The heart, the root, the whole, the source of prophecy.   

Therefore, Revelation 19: 10b declares that:  

** Jesus Christ Speaks / declares all prophecy.

** Outside of the declaration / testimony of Jesus Christ -- there is no prophecy.  

Prophecy ---- the telling of future things / events is not a physical phenomenon, but is from the spiritual

True prophecy comes only from Jesus Christ and will be fulfilled -- 100% true.

Prophecy -- so called -- that comes from other spiritual sources will not be proven to be 100% true.  

Every person who speaks and declares it to be prophecy must bear the proof that those words are
completely true and that the source is Jesus Christ.

**!! The above discussion of prophecy, gives a proof text / explanation for the discussion below, of the
prophecy of Revelation.  

Above; it says that;

God will call persons to give His prophecy of future events to mankind.

God will declare prophecy of coming important events that He will perform / carry out.

All prophecy comes from Jesus Christ, and will prove completely true.

The context of the Great White Throne judgment:   

** All mankind have been physically dead for over a thousand years.

** The devil, the beast, and the false prophet have been cast into the lake of fire.  

** Physical earth and heaven has fled away.     

** All of mankind has received their resurrected bodies.  

** The books that detail the spiritual lives of every person are opened.

At the Great White Throne judgment will be every human being who has ever lived, with the exception of
those who comprise / part of the beast and the false prophet, who were "cast alive into the lake of fire"
-- in Revelation 19: 20.

Therefore -- -- the Great White Throne judgment is the final event / the conclusion of all mankind / God's
creation.  The eternal destiny of all of mankind is determined at this time.  Because of the importance of
this event in the lives of every human being we can be assured that God has given us prophecy
explaining this final event.  That prophecy is best understood in the book of Revelation as Jesus opens
the seven sealed message.  

The prophecy of the final / Great White Throne judgment:  

The seven sealed message from the right hand of God as He sits upon the throne is central / primary
to the message of Revelation.  Please recognize that mankind's spiritual Father / God is giving to every
human being a message.  The message is given from His right hand, and only Jesus Christ can open
that message.  Jesus Christ instructs John to send the message to seven churches -- meaning the
complete church.  Then the church has the task of getting the message to the rest of the world.  In the
final analysis, the message of the Gospel -- of which this prophecy is part -- must go to every nation,
language and tribe and then the end will come.

Please note -- -- the seven sealed message, from the right hand of God, given to Jesus Christ is the
entire message of the book of Revelation.  

The seven seals:  

Seals 1 -- 5 are a unit / block of Scripture.  They describe / are the guidelines / conditions of life /
realities that God has created into His creation -- they are the facts of life on Earth as God created it.  
Mankind will be judged by God, according to how he has lived / his works, in regard to the message of
seals 1 -- 5.  Thus the message of 'Seals' 1- 5 is prophesy of the judgment to be declared at the
coming Great White Throne judgment.  (Revelation 20: 13b.)

Seal # 6 gives a two-part message / prophecy.  The first part is a visionary picture of mankind, who has
rejected Jesus Christ / rebelled against their creator and are being destroyed at the very end of time.  
The second part is an explanation of those who are the family of God.  They are two groups -- the
144,000 of the 12 tribes of Israel and a great multitude from every nation, language and tribe of the
earth, as explained in Revelation Chapter 7.  The message of the sixth seal gives to mankind the
understanding -- that while those who have rejected God's plan for mankind are being destroyed --
those who have believed / obeyed the Lord are in heaven with their Creator.  Thus, the message of the
6th 'Seal', in visionary form, shows mankind divided into two groups -- with the family of God in heaven
-- as those who rejected God's plan being destroyed on earth.  

Seal # 7 is prophecy that explains the last seven years of planet Earth and the tribulation through which
God brings an end to His creation.  The message explains the destruction of the trumpets -- plus
explanations -- the rapture -- then seven bowls of God's wrath with explanations of judgment --
Armageddon -- the millennial -- the great white throne judgment and the description of heaven.  Thus
the message of the 7th 'Seal' is Revelation chapters 8 - 22.  

* Remember -- The 7 sealed scroll from the right hand of God is the WHOLE message.   

Prophecy of judgment in the Seals 1 -- 5:

Please note -- -- in seals one through four, the horses represent a courier delivering the message --
the riders represent mankind as the message of prophecy is given to mankind.  

Please note -- -- the message of the seals 1 - 5 is understood to be prophecy of coming judgment.  
That is substantiated by the judgments declared against the woman who sits on the scarlet beast in
Revelation chapters 17 and 18.  Thus, in the following explanations -- we give the explanation of the
Seal, followed by its comparison to the judgment of the woman / the great prostitute / Babylon in the
great.  Whereas chapter 17 and 18 give the complete description of the judgments against the woman,
in Chapter 18 is a few verses that put in order and explain simply those judgments.

Seal # 1:

The rider on the white horse has a bow, is given a crown and rides as a conqueror.  This is a three-part
message and the bow and the conqueror has meaning in the picture, but the crown is the central point
in regard to judgment.  The fact that the rider is given a crown is significant.  To all mankind is given a
crown and our crown is a great and valuable gift from our Creator.  

A Crown is the attire of a King.  God has made us Kings in that we are given / granted authority /
guaranteed by God, that we may choose whether we believe in God or not, obey God or not, live our
lives in the ways of the Lord or in rebellion as the devil.  The crown gives to us freedom of choice, and it
also demands that we choose.  I must bear the responsibility of my choice and will be judged by my
choice.  In the eyes / realm of God, mankind has spiritual freedom in their physical life -- and will be
held accountable at the Great White Throne judgment for the choice they make.  No government, ruler,
authority or person can prevent any person from in their mind -- calling upon the name of the Lord -- I
choose Jesus Christ as my Lord.  God gave to us a 'crown' of freedom of choice.  

Judgment / accusation against the woman:  

In Revelation 17: 4 - 5 she is accused of fornication / harlotry and in 18: 3 it says "all nations have drunk
--- of her fornication, the kings ----- committed fornication with her".  

This 'woman', who represents mankind who are NOT part of the family of God, used her 'crown' of
choice to reject God / unfaithful to her creator -- thus she is judged guilty of ‘fornication’ / spiritual
adultery.  Mankind, who are faithful to their Creator will become the 'bride of Christ' -- as the woman /
the unfaithful will be judged guilty of fornication / unfaithful.  

Seal # 2:  

The rider on the 'fiery red horse' takes 'peace from the earth' and causes 'that people should kill one

To 'kill' is a sin as declared in the 10 commandments.  Here the message uses the greatest of sins
(mankind to mankind) to exemplify that mankind is a sinner.  "For all have sinned and come short of the
glory of God."  

Judgment / accusation against the woman:  

Revelation 18: 5 -- “For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities."  
She is guilty / the record has been written and she will stand before the Judge at the Great White
Throne.  She has not repented of her sins, as has the family of God, thus she is judged guilty of sin /

Seal # 3:  

The rider on the 'black horse' has 'a pair of scales in his hand'.  

The 'scales' are a tool of business.  In God's creation all must work / do business to provide for their
living.  God instructed Adam that "in the sweat of your face you shall eat your bread."  Seal #3
prophesies that mankind will be judged / held to account for how they do business.  Jesus devotes
several parables to 'work' of servants and that there will be a day of accounting.    

Judgment / accusation against the woman:

"------ repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her.  In
the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and
sorrow."  She is found to have gained excessive riches through unfair / deceptive / wrong business
practices and will be judged.

Seal # 4:  

The rider on the 'pale horse' is 'Death'.  

In the Garden of Eden it was declared that mankind will die.  All mankind was created physical and will
physically die.  This judgment will take place after physical death.  Mankind without redemption by
'calling upon the name of the Lord' / through Jesus Christ will die spiritually.  Here it is prophesied that
those who are 'dead in trespasses and sin, will be judged for their 'works' and 'cast into the lake of fire'
/ spiritual death.    

Judgment / accusation against the woman:  

"For she says in her heart, 'I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow'.  "Therefore her
plagues will come in one day  - death and mourning and famine.  And she will be utterly burned with
fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her." (18: 7b - 8).  She is found to have disregarded the fact
that every human must give account before their Creator -- thus it is prophesied that judgment and
'Death' in the 'lake of fire' will be the destiny of mankind who is represented by the woman who sits on
the scarlet beast.  

Seal # 5:  

The 5th seal gives a visionary picture of the 'souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and
for the testimony which they held'.  They are 'under the alter' -- a place especially prepared for them.  
Throughout history -- beginning with Cain and Able --
there has been conflict between God's faithful and the rebellious / sinful that resulted in the killing of
some of God's faithful / the martyrs.

Judgment / accusation against the woman:

"I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus."
Revelation 17: 6.  

"And in her was found the blood of the prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth."
Revelation 18: 24.  

The woman is accused / found guilty of murder and judgment will be carried out at the Great White

In conclusion:

With the above explanations we declare that this sealed message from the right hand of God is
prophecy that tells mankind of the seven year tribulation and following judgment at the end of God's
plan for His creation.  Although this is contrary to common beliefs and interpretations we believe that
the evidence exemplifies common sense and good biblical interpretation.  

Seal' #s 1 - 5 explain the basis for the judgment at the Great White Throne.  

Seal # 6 describes two groups of people (at the end / last eventon earth)  who will be there at that day of

Seal # 7 describes seven years of tribulation, with certain descriptive explanations – the White Throne
judgment and a description of heaven.  

This seven sealed prophecy from the hand of God was given to John who sent it to seven churches /
the whole church.  

The seven churches have the task / job of sending the message to every nation, language and tribe.
