Hi, Tovey

I see a correspondence between the seven seals, the seven trumpets and the seven plagues. Do you?

Seals: These, when broken, allow parts of the scroll of prophecy to be revealed.

Trumpets (Shofars): These announce the commencement of the event

Vials of Plagues: These are the actual events

There are seven series of the three:

Series I: The seal releases a white horse; and the prophetic period is one of conquest. The greatest period of conquest in history is the colonization of the world by the Brits, French, Spanish, etc. from 1492 to 1945. The trumpet produces something resembling bombardment by aircradt or artillery, which John could have seen as a glimpse of one of the World Wars; the plague is of sores, which resemble the wounds caused by chemical warfare (introduced in WWI).

Series II: The seal releases a red horse; and the prophetic period is one not of conquest, but of a lack of peace. That resembles the Cold War, so the color "red" may allude to the red state flags of the communist nations. The trumpet was in the form of a "great mountain burning with fire", resembling the effect of a nuclear explosion. During the first 1946 Bikini tests, the targets were ships, of which only a minority (hence, "the third part") were destroyed.

The plague was blood-red seas. Some people today are reporting red seas, from red tide, etc.; and the Gulf Oil Spill was reddish. To fit into the Cold War period, though, this plague would have had to have happened between 1946 and around 1989. At least one author mentions the aftermath of the Mt. St. Helens eruption in 1980:

HOMER'S SEA: WINE DARK?
By JOHN NOBLE WILFORD
Published: December 20, 1983
...Dr. Rutherford-Dyer suggested a possible meteorological explanation... According to his reasoning, high dust content in the atmosphere gives a dark red sunset, and its reflection in a dark sea can give a "color and texture very close to that of mavrodaphne." He recalled seeing this phenomenon off Maine recently when the sky carried dust from the far away eruption of Mount St. Helens. And dusty skies, he added, indicate slow- moving winds and, therefore, stable weather conditions.

Other than that, I haven's heard of any unusual redness during the Cold War period,

That's as far as I've gotten.

Shalom shalom :-)
