The end has begun. This statement may seem dramatic or alarmist, but the truth is that the end of something always marks the beginning of something else. In this case, the end that is referred to is the end of the world as we know it.
There are many factors that contribute to the feeling that the end has begun. One of the most significant is the current state of the environment. The earth is facing a multitude of environmental challenges, including climate change, deforestation, and pollution. These issues are having a profound impact on the planet and its inhabitants, and they show no signs of abating.
Another factor contributing to the sense that the end has begun is the state of global politics. The world is becoming increasingly divided, with different countries and groups pulling in different directions. This has led to increased tensions and conflicts, both within countries and between them.
Additionally, the rapid pace of technological change is also contributing to the feeling that the end has begun. With new technologies being developed and introduced at an ever-increasing rate, it can be difficult to keep up. This can lead to a sense of disorientation and uncertainty about the future.
Despite all of these challenges, it is important to remember that the end of one thing is always the beginning of something else. While the end of the world as we know it may be difficult to face, it also presents an opportunity for a new beginning. It is up to us to determine what that new beginning will look like, and to work towards building a better future for ourselves and for the planet.
The opening of the Sixth seal, the next event on the Revelation time line will dispel any such doubts. However, this interpretation has fallen out of favor, and it is now generally believed that the white rider symbolizes the efforts of those preparing the way for the rise of the anti-Christ. The fewer their numbers, the easier it is to brutalize and kill them for their belief and devotion to Jesus.

In Africa, the rising persecution of Christians in many regions appears to be more complicated. The New Testament assures us, however, that what Jesus has already accomplished will become universally evident at his return, when he comes again in person and in power.
However, with the opening of the fourth seal, and with Death and Hades claiming their dominion over a quarter of the world and thanks to US foreign policy of killing Muslims and overthrowing Muslim governments hostile authorities have come to power in many regions or are waging war in an attempt to claim power. In Mathew 24:32-34, Jesus tell us, Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. The angel consoles them but says more will die in fulfillment of what is to be. There are two necessary conditions that need to be present, to enable the persecution of Christians. Similarly with the third horseman, the rider on a black horse, rise in the price of food will only worsen and grow more severe with time.
The ruling authorities have traditionally left them in peace and protected them from abuse. The opening of the second seal unleashes the rider on a red horse. You can read about it and see video of it happening on the internet. This rider brings with him conflict —whether wars, civil wars, or other types of armed conflict. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
As we draw closer to His return, just as when we draw closer to the bith of a baby, the signs of His return will come at a faster pace, and be of a more intense nature. In the Middle East, the overthrow of Saddam and the ensuing civil chaos has resulted in the massacre of Christian communities, as ISIS and other hostile powers fight for power. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. The Opening of the Fourth Seal The opening of the fourth seal unleashes two of the most fearful specters, Death and Hades, as Revelation 4:7-8 tells us: And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. However, these accomplishments are not yet visible though we have begun already to enjoy them by faith.
The Opening of the Fifth Seal When the Fifth seal is opened, Revelation 6:9-11 describes to us a scene in heaven: And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? Revelation 6:3-6 tells us: And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. The number of hours required to work to purchase the necessities of life continue to rise — this is being driven by government fiscal and monetary policies. That signaled the beginning of the End of the world. Even now, Christians may still hold a plurality but may have already lost its majority. The opening of the fifth seal marks the beginning of a new era of persecution for Christians. Surveys show a dramatic reduction of faith in the youth of today. The rider on the white horse is a deceiver, a pretender.
The rebirth of the Jewish nation started a countdown to the return of Christ. 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. 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. Based on this, it can be argued that given current longevity, there is approximately a 100 year window, from 1948 to 2048, during which we can expect Christ to return to this world to establish His reign on this world. The interpretation of this passage has undergone changes over the centuries. Hostile authorities already exist.
That this sign is being fulfilled means the time of the end has begun, although few people are aware of it. The Romans crushed the rebellion and in the aftermath, the Roman army not only destroyed the Jewish temple in Jerusalem but they destroyed the country itself, forcing surviving Jews to flee. Just as Satan disguises himself as an angel in white, so will those working for the Beast will too cloth themselves deceptively, acting as if they are trying to achieve noble purpose. Whether their motivation is money or power or just plain meanness, they target Christian communities to cause death and havoc. He will rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem and in the name of the Jewish moschiach, he will command all those under his dominion to worship him. The first rider started his work decades ago, and will continue to inhabit our world until the anti-Christ ascends to his final position of power. Maybe you are happy it's occurring, or you may have been appalled by it.
It is of some not minor significance that within Judaic thinking, they also believe that the rebirth of the Jewish nation is a crucial event in connection with their long awaited rise of the secular Jewish moschiach aka messiah. Needless to say, Revelation tells us that Death and Hades will continue to wreck greater and greater havoc over time, in their area of dominion. In many regions, where Christians and Muslims had lived peacefully, the Christian communities have been decimated, with survivors forced to flee their home region. This free booklet will reveal one sign that is being completed right before your eyes. And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. This End would not be recognizable by a calendar but by End-time events.
