My impressions of Revelations as I read it. Sorry that it's kinda long, but i didn't really want to leave anything out. Draw your own conclusions.
My interpretation is found at the following thread: www.abovetopsecret.com...
seal one: white horse, conqueror
seal two: red horse, war
seal three: black horse: famine
seal four: sword, famine, pestilence, wild animals
seal five: people crying for justice; told to wait for a while
seal six: earthquake, sun goes dark, moon turns red, people hide in mountains
no wind on earth
144000 sealed for God
great multitude turns to God
seventh seal: half hour of silence
trumpet one: hail and fire mixed with blood, third of earth, trees, and grass burned
trumpet two: great mountain thrown into sea: third of ships, third of sea creatures die, and ocean becomes a third blood
trumpet three: burning star called wormwood: a third of waters become wormwood and many die
trumpet four: third of sun struck, third of moon, third of star, third of light darkened.
trumpet five: star falls to earth, smoke from shaft of abyss rises: locusts come from smoke for five months. Unsealed long to die. locusts appear to
look like armored warriors led by Abbadon or Appolyon. First woe ends.
