"RE: Michelle Simpson--"New letter for The Five Doves Latter-Day Letters""
Hello, John and Doves,
Michelle, a possible clue to the meaning of the fifth seal is the fact that they ask, "...how long...":
"They called loudly to the Lord and said, "O
Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long will it be before you judge the
people who belong to this world for what they have done to us? When
will you avenge our blood against these people?" Revelation 6:10
Clearly, the end of Daniel's 70th Week is laid out for all to see as soon as we know when the
beginning is. Conclusion: the multitude spoken of here must not be referring to the end of
Daniel's 70th Week, by anyone's calculation.
The fifth seal must be before the Rapture, because
" '...of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.' "
From this reasoning, the Fourth Horse of the Apocalypse, having ridden forth from the opening of
the fourth seal, must be generating this multitude from the many Christians now being martyred.

"New letter for The Five Doves Latter-Day Letters"
I have been a lurker to five doves for nearly a year
and would now like to begin joining in the conversation. I am a
spirit-filled Christian wholehearted in my desire and watch for Jesus
to come imminently in the rapture. Please publish the following letter
in your "The Latter-Day Letters" segment.
Thank you and may the Lord continue to bless you, and all Doves, as you watch for Him to come.
Welcome to the Doves, Michelle!
Hello Five Doves,
Re: To Jennie and John B/Pale Horse, Rapture, Sixth Seal
I'm strongly leaning toward your Rapture after the
sixth seal view. For some time now I've continued to trip over the
Rapture occurring at Rev. 4:1 since there was no actual mention of it
happening there. I only recently resolved/received peace in my spirit
that the Rapture will actually occur at a point prior to the seventh
seal being opened.
The only thing about this time sequence that
continues to not make sense to me involves the fifth seal. It seems to
be misplaced in my logic. Who are the slain in Rev. 6:9? I
always believed they were those martyred in the future holocaust of
mass beheadings that should take place once the Antichrist is unmasked
and fully running things. But if this is true then why are they being
seen under the altar in heaven before any of the full blown tribulation
events (trumpet & vials), which take place after the seventh seal,
even begin to happen? In other words if the BRIDE, who is not
appointed to wrath, has not yet been taken up at the fifth seal
point, then this slain group under the altar at the fifth seal
has to be other than the mass beheaded ones because the mass beheaded
ones do come out of the great day of his wrath. So again, who are these
slain ones? Why is John seeing them in heaven at this point?
Could this be a group of Christians killed in large numbers in an event
or events that happen prior to the Rapture as a result of the release
of the pale horse going out? .... Or are they simply the many
Christians who have been persecuted and martyred around the world and
over centuries solely for being Christians in anti-Christian, hostile
environments (eg. .. Stephen; or the many underground Church converts
of eastern nations, etc.)? I'm trying to see how the fifth seal
scenario being placed where it is makes sense?
