9 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: 10 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? 11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. Rev 6:9-11 (KJV)
This seal is bad news. It represents the active efforts of the Antichrist to hunt down dissidents, most especially that of Christians.
The odds are good that most Christians will be caught in this persecution. We’ll assume half.
I’m not going to mince words on this at all. The odds are very good that you will probably be caught and killed in this Seal judgment. Hold fast to your testimony. Do not under any circumstances recant your confession of faith.
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) Heb 10:23 (KJV)
Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Rev 3:11 (KJV)
I’m going to guesstimate 3 million Christians die during this Seal. Hopefully I’m WAY off, and you can laugh at me after the Glorious Appearing. “Hah! Three million! You were so wrong!” “I know, I know…”
Grand total perished in the Tribulation to date… 1,753,750,000 people.
