"The Seal Of God in Your Forehead"
And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
has just seen the 6th Seal unveiled and now,
he sees four angels (the number 4 denotes "earth" in Biblical numerics)
standing on the four corners of the earth.
simply means that what is about to be said
concerns the entire world,
all four quadrants which make up the whole.
four angels are holding back the "four winds"
that they should not blow, i.e.
they are stopping their action.
does that mean?
Well, every time the "four winds" are spoken of
they are always connected with the final events,
the consummation of this earth age.
You can read of them in Ezek. 37 and in Daniel 7 as well.
Rev. 7:1 is simple.
John saw that there is a holding pattern
concerning the final events of this earth age
which are about to befall us.
I am sure there must be a very good reason why,
and I am sure we will find out because Christ has foretold all things, remember?
 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
"servants" of the living God
must have the "seal" of the living God
placed "in their foreheads".
I heard once that people are going to have
the "mark of the beast" stamped,
maybe even implanted, on their foreheads,
which I was told was the number 666.
Someone suggested that it might even be done
in Roman numerals like VI VI VI
which looks an awful lot like maybe a bar code,
It might even be a computer chip.
And it would be funny if it weren't so sad.
have already learned that the Seal of God is His Word.
And we are expected to know from common sense
or grade school anatomy class that our brains,
or shall we say our minds, reside in our foreheads.
to have the Seal of God in our forehead
is simply to have the Word of God in our mind,
i.e. to have an understanding of God's Word,
of His overall plan of salvation,
to even understand the Seals themselves if you will.
It is interesting that the Greek word
for "sealed" is sphragizo
which means to preserve or mark for security.
Read this verse:
And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth,
neither any green thing, neither any tree;
but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
you DO NOT have the Seal of God in your forehead,
then you will have the Seal of Satan in your forehead,
the mark of the beast, i.e. Satan's word,
which is garbage, deception,
and will lead you to the spiritual crematorium because you are "marked" for hurtin'!
is really very simple.
You either belong to Christ,
the Son of God,
and have His Word,
His seal in your mind,
son of perdition,
and have his word,
his seal (mark) in your mind.
So we know what the Seal of God is (His truth)
could ask yourself these questions;
"Am I a sealer or a sealee?"
I.e. "Do I have eyes to see and ears to hear?"
then you are servant of the Most High God.
blessed you are!
