The Sixth Seal Introduction My name is Tom Black. I was a 20 year believer of the commonly taught end-times theory called the pre-tribulation rapture. Now after careful consideration of the evidence, I’ve accepted the plain teaching of the bible which is the post-tribulation, pre-wrath return of the Lord Jesus Christ. Independent Fundamental Baptists lack tremendously in the area of Bible prophecy and their understanding of the book of Revelation, so I consider this work to be important.

Part 1 – The Importance of a Scripturally Accurate Timeline

The Sixth Seal – Part 1 Praise the Lord, Jesus is coming! In this study, we’ll be examining fascinating passages in the bible that are rarely taught on in evangelical churches including Independent Fundamental Baptist churches.

He gives us important details regarding the tribulation, the antichrist, his glorious return, and the gathering of his elect, which are the saints. The discussion he has with his disciples is known as “The Olivet Discourse,” which is just a fancy way of saying, “The discussion on Mount Olives.” The parallel passages are found in Mat. 24, Luke 21. Mark 13:1 ¬†And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto
