Seven Seals Parallel Matthew 24

For those who have not studied my teachings, I am very strong on the belief that God designed the Bible to study in parallel from Genesis to Revelation and that everything must be established on the testimony of two or three witnesses. I teach heavily about this in my book: Tell Them to Prepare – The Final Restoration. The Lord has continued to bring insight and revelation in restoring our understanding of the scriptures for the last days. Over the past few months, God has gone deeper, expanding many chapters involved with the book of Revelation. While I was working on some of those updates this week, the Lord said: “Richard, did you know the Seven Seals parallel Matthew 24? Meaning that the Context of what is taught in the Seven Seals in the book lines up in parallel to Matthew 24. I have been learning these things from the Lord since April 1980 and I had never thought to link that chapter to specific events in Revelation. Most of my focus has been on Matthew 25. I have made several references to Matthew 24, but not in this way. I grabbed my Bible and pulled up the book on my computer and started working. It’s not what most would expect, but it does parallel in an amazing way.

  • Mathew 24:6-8 = Seals 1, 2, 3, 4 (Four Horsemen – beginning)
  • Matthew 24:9-10 = Seal 5 – Martyr’s Prayer
  • Matthew 24: 11-20 = Seal 6 – use the cross-reference chart (click to open in a new tab)
  • Matthew 24:21-28 = Seal 7 – The beginning of the Tribulation and includes the events of the Tribulation chapter.
  • Matthew 24:29-31 = Return of Christ at end of Tribulation (THIS IS NOT THE RAPTURE!)

All of the above is explained in detail in the book. I don’t have the space to do that here. This is just a summary. You can get the book HERE!

A lot of doctrines get confused as to the events of Jesus return at the end of the Tribulation because of scriptures found in this chapter. I want to bring your attention to Matthew 24:31. When Jesus returns he is going to send out his angels to gather his elect from the four corners of the Earth. This is not the Rapture! We are going to see that later in this summary.

How do I know? Because the Saints glorified in the Rapture do not need an angel to carry them anywhere. When Jesus returns ALL those who have kept their faith through the Tribulation are taken to Jesus so that they can be where Jesus is and no one will no longer harm them. Those killed during the Tribulation are glorified and don’t need an angel also. There is a bonus to this as well in Malachi 4:1-3. Every one of those who is collected by the angels will be totally healed as they are brought to Jesus and will be jumping and celebrating the victory of Jesus.

Matthew 24:36-44 – Is the Rapture!

Bonus verse: Malachi 3:16-18.

After Jesus finished speaking about the Tribulation, he then returns and begins talking about an event that is sudden. It is not part of the collection of saints at the end of the Tribulation, because he is comparing it to an event at the time of Noah, “before the flood.” While the collection of the saints happens after the destruction. The Malachi reference is about sparing his chosen from the Tribulation.
