Revelation: Why I developed headache studying it
Understanding the book of Revelation with Afolabi Dollars (4)
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!” 2 I looked, and there was a WHITE HORSE. The HORSEMAN on it had a bow; a crown was given to him, and he went out as a victor to conquer”- Rev.6:1-2
In 1998, when I first did a THOROUGH STUDY on the book of Revelation, for 3 weeks I had headaches because there were just too many CODES to decode.
Initially, I was doing fine with the symbols and representations until I got to chapter 6!, I was stuck for a while until I said to myself that I need to be going back and forth in the book and engage scriptural correlation for me to demystify it.
So the first thing I did was to first of all identify and check out the KEY PLAYERS in the chapter 6:
1) THE LAMB
2) THE SEALS
3) THE 4 HORSES OF THE APOCALYPSE
4) THE 4 RIDERS
5) THE 4 LIVING CREATURES
6) JOHN THE VISIONER
After identifying these players, I started checking them out critically and I had to go back to chapter 5 in order to decode these visions! We need to decode that these visions of the 4 horses were the first visions John saw after the scenes in heaven in chapter 4, so in chapter 5, I saw that THE LAMB was the only one found worthy to open the book and break the SEALS (Revelation 5:1-14).
NO MAN or ANGEL is worthy to open the seals. It’s the jurisdiction of ONLY THE LAMB!
Then I had to travel back again to chapter 4 where I first read about the 4 LIVING CREATURES to decode what it is, and then I saw that these four living creatures — one like a LION, one like a CALF, one like a MAN, and one like an EAGLE — were among those who worshipped God and the Lamb (Revelation 4:7)
Please take note that what comes first is THE LION face, the last face of the 4 living creatures was THE EAGLE!
This is very important in understanding the SEALS and the times we are in, as everything is being unravelled in PHASES/STAGES!
The phase of THE LION comes first before the phase of THE CALF, then followed by the phase of THE MAN, before the final phase which is the phase of THE EAGLE and mankind must experience all these 4 phases of the LIVING CREATURES in the frequency of what they represent!
The Prophet, Ezekiel in his VISION of the Lord’s glory, also wrote about the 4 living creatures around 590BCE before John saw them in his own VISION 680years after. So both John and Ezekiel saw a VISION about the 4 living creatures but in a different order; in John’s VISION for instance, they have six wings, whereas in Ezekiel’s, these 4 living creatures are described as having only four wings.(Ezek.1:5-10, 10:4-11).
