Of the "four horsemen" of the Apocalypse, or Revelation [the first four seals of chapter 6] - war, famine, pestilence, disease and earthquakes - Jesus tells us that these things will continue as "normal" everyday occurences in the world. He tells us:

"...see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet." (Matt.24:6)

These things have increased and intensified over the centuries... much of it the results of man's "technological advances" in warfare, scientific discoveries and medicine. And Jesus tells us that the increase and frequency of these things are not the signs of His "coming back"... but will signal the "beginning of the Great Tribulation!"

"ALL THESE ARE THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS." (Matt.24:8) [sorrows: throes (odin); a pang or throe, especially of childbirth]

This corresponds with Revelation's "seal 5" that follows the "four horsemen seals." The fifth seal of Revelation 6 reveals a time of persecution and martyrdom on the earth of God's people... NOT BEING CARRIED OFF SAFELY INTO HEAVEN, as so many religious denominations teach today.

Jesus' description of seal 5, the Great Tribulation... the next chronological event to come in human affairs on the earth signaled by the first four seals... is found in the next 21 verses of Matthew 24:

"...THEN shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and SHALL KILL YOU: and ye shall be hated OF ALL NATIONS for MY NAME'S SAKE. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another... and because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, THE SAME SHALL BE SAVED. and THIS GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM SHALL BE PREACHED IN ALL THE WORLD FOR A WITNESS UNTO ALL NATIONS; and THEN SHALL THE END COME." (Matt.24:9-14)

Jesus doesn't come back until verses 30-31 in Matthew 24. Not until the Great Tribulation is shortened by the "heavenly signs"... not the signs of wars, famines, etc., that mark the start of the Tribulation.

The "heavenly signs" is the composition of Revelation's "seal 6."

"...when He opened the sixth seal... there was a great earthquake; and THE SUN BECAME BLACK AS SACKCLOTH OF HAIR, and THE MOON BECAME AS BLOOD; and the stars of heaven fell unto the earth... and the beaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places..." (Rev.6:12-14).

Jesus tells us in Matthew 24, that it's these signs IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE GREAT TRIBULATION that signal the time of His coming.

"...IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE DAYS shall THE SUN BE DARKENED, and THE MOON SHALL NOT GIVE HER LIGHT, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: and THEN SHALL APPEAR THE SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN IN HEAVEN: and THEN shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they SHALL SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING IN THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN with power and great glory. And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather His elect..." (Matt.24:29-31).

Once again... this is borne out by Revelation's "seal 6."

"...and the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, HID THEMSELVES IN THE DENS AND IN THE ROCKS OF THE MOUNTAINS; and said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and HIDE US FROM THE FACE OF HIM THAT SITTETH ON THE THRONE, and from THE WRATH OF THE LAMB: for THE GREAT DAY OF HIS WRATH IS COME; and who shall be able to stand?" (Rev.6:15-17)

It isn't the ongoing signs of the four horsemen of Revelation, wars, famines, pestilences, diseases and earthquakes that are the signs of Jesus' coming back. It shall be the entire darkening of the earth that will signal it.

And that won't happen until AFTER the Great Tribulation which is just ahead of us... being brought about by the increasing, intensifying signs of more deadly global wars, famines, pestilences, diseases and earthquakes.
