Thoughts on the First and Second Seals

Then I saw the Lamb open one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures say with a voice like thunder, ‘Come!’ I looked, and there was a white horse. Its rider held a bow; a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.” – Rev. 6:1-2

Recently, I read an End Times novel in which the rider of the white horse was interpreted as the Antichrist. This made no sense to me, because right before the opening of the first seal, it says, “Look! The Lamb of God, the Lion from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered so that he is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.” – Rev. 5:5

As a Catholic, I was taught to respond to “Have you been saved?” with “I have been saved; I am being saved; and I hope when my time comes, I will be saved.” The reference to Jesus who “has conquered” shortly followed by the rider who goes out on the white horse “conquering and to conquer” reminded me of this. So it feels right to me that Jesus is the rider on the white horse.

And when I looked it up to double check my thoughts, I noticed that when the second seal is opened, “Another horse went out, a fiery red one, and its rider was allowed to take peace from the earth, so that people would slaughter one another. And a large sword was given to him.” – Rev. 6:4

When I saw “Take peace from the earth”, I remembered the Catholic prophecies that tell us that, before the final tribulations, Jesus will come as the King of Mercy. All around the world, the sky will become black as the night, even where it is daytime, and everyone will Jesus on the cross. Each will be shown his or her soul and sinfulness as God sees them. And each will experience for a few minutes what it would be like (Heaven, Hell, or Purgatory) if they were to die at that moment. To me, that sounds like the first seal, with Jesus, the King of Mercy going out with his crown, conquering and to conquer.

Further, it has been prophesied that, immediately following the Warning, there will be a period of 6 weeks where the devil will not be allowed to act so that all will have the freedom to choose for or against God. In other words, there will be a period of peace. I’m thinking the second seal sounds like what will happen at the end of that six week period of peace, when the rider of the red horse is “allowed to take peace from the earth, so that people would slaughter one another.

Bits & Bytes

CRITICAL RACE THEORY: A new poll shows that the majority of American voters are deeply opposed to having critical race theory (CRT) principles being taught in schools.

Should schools teach that people are natural oppressors or victims based on their sex, race, and physical characteristics? No (86.6%).

Should schools teach that achieving racial justice and equality between racial groups requires discriminating against people based on their whiteness? No (84%).

FAUXTUS: Last week, “Not My President” told us that the greatest threat facing America is terrorism from white supremacy. Before that, it was disunity. Now, it’s climate change. Who knows what it will be next week?

FLAUXTUS: Why is Jill Biden sitting at the president’s desk on Air Force One, “prepping for the G-7” and tweeting from an account labeled “United States government official”? Nobody elected HER. (Not that anybody elected her husband but I digress.) So what’s going on? Is this a reprise of Woodrow and Edith Wilson?

HCQ: A new study has found that the use of weight-adjusted hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and azithromycin (AZM) greatly improved the survival of ventilated COVID-19 patients.

We found that when the cumulative doses of two drugs, HCQ and AZM, were above a certain level, patients had a survival rate 2.9 times the other patients,” the authors of the study noted.

HUNTER’S POTTY MOUTH: Newly released Hunter Biden emails show him disparaging “fa**ots” and “d*kes” and calling his lawyer the N-word.

Hunter learned those words at home from his father. The rotten apple doesn’t plop far from the tree.” -Don Surber

IVERMECTIN: The 15-page article linked below describes chronicles the effectiveness of this inexpensive drug and the immoral efforts of the Left to prevent people from learning about it.

If, for some reason, you can’t get into the COVID-19 Critical Care site, Zero Hedge covers the article in detail.

IOWA: On Tuesday, Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a bill into law that bans ballot harvesting in the state. The bill passed along party lines both in the House and the Senate.

MARVEL: I have enjoyed these movies, but I’m done now that all things Disney must conform to the Left’s perversion agenda. Captain America (who pined for Peggy Carter for years, then went back in time to marry her) is now gay. And Star-Lord (who is famously played in the movies by a devout Christian) has been warped into a poly-amorous character. Now their new show “Loki” will feature the Norse god of mischief as a boy and a girl.

TRUMP VINDICATED: A year ago, Trump was accused of having tear gassed peaceful protesters just so he could walk from the White House to St. John’s Church for a photo op. Turns out they weren’t peaceful and he wasn’t the one who gassed them.

A report by Department of the Interior Inspector General states, “The evidence we reviewed showed that the USPP cleared the park to allow the contractor to safely install the antiscale fencing in response to destruction of property and injury to officers occurring on May 30 and 31. Further, the evidence showed that the USPP did not know about the President’s potential movement until mid- to late afternoon on June 1—hours after it had begun developing its operational plan and the fencing contractor had arrived in the park.”

VAX: A new study shows that the natural immunity enjoyed by recovered COVID-19 patients is as good as getting the vaccine. In fact, it’s probably better, because the vaccine only immunizes against the spike protein on the original COVID-19, whereas natural immunity covers the shape of the whole virus and is thus likely to better defend against variants.

VFAUXTUS: Don Surber writes, “A reader responded to my remark about Harris in yesterday’s highlights. I wrote, ‘Her staff is sabotaging her. She must be a monster to work for.

He said, ‘Bingo!’ Then he told me about a sale he made last fall. It was ‘to a woman who had worked in Harris’ Sacramento US Senate office. This woman is in her 60s, an attorney and a life-long Democrat. She quit because working for Harris was simply intolerable.

She told me that the staff turnover in Harris’ offices was horrendous, even in Sacramento, which Harris (still a Senator at the time) rarely visited. She told me that Harris keeps her staff stirred up and at each other’s throats and is a profane abusive tyrant. This woman told me she was voting for Trump because she had seen what Harris is really about.’
