Revelation 6 introduces the Seal Judgments. It’s still early in the End Times Scenario but already things are getting rough. The first four judgments are symbolized by the famous Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and before they’re finished 1/4th of the world will be adversely affected. Many will die as martyrs and there’ll be great signs in the heavenlies. Those who dwell on Earth will know that the Day of God’s Wrath has come.
Regarding the “24 elders” (Rev. 4:4, 11:16, etc.). We understand that these 24 elders are “us” (the Church-age believers). Do you believe that all believers are somehow “collectively embodied” within the 24 elders or are the 24 elders symbolic? Or is it possible that we will all individually get a chance (when our “rotation” is called) to sit on one of the “24 thrones” much like the duties were rotated after the lots were cast for certain activities in the House of the LORD as described in 1 Chronicles chapters 24 & 25?
