The Fifth Seal.
(See Revelation 6:9-11.)

And when He (the Lamb) had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the Word of [Yahweh] God, and for the testimony which they held: 10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying:  How long, O Lord [Yahweh God], Holy and True, dost Thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them that they should rest yet for a little season (time), until their fellow servants and their brethren, should also be killed as they were, that it should be fulfilled.  (Revelation 6:9-11)

Sin, with its inherent violence, has brought the fear of death to enslave humanity in its sin. This unseen murderous force of sin that breeds death, has been in the hands of sin's taskmaster named Satan and Death. 

However, those souls that John saw beneath the sacrificial altar, were dead to sin, and because of their Faith in Holy Yahweh God's Spirit of TRUTH. they were to be patient while  resting IN the Body of Christ Jesus.  Each soul beneath the altar, having been slain because of their word that testified of the Promise of Yahweh God, were written in the Lamb's book of LIFE even before the foundation of the world.  The great number of those souls would have been of the believing Hebrew saints, waiting for Yahweh God's Promised Messiah: Where by, He [Yeshua/Jesus] also went and preached to the spirits (souls) in prison, and when He Yeshua/Jesus ascended up on high, He led captivity captive, and [also] gave gifts unto men. (See Ephesians 4:4-8, and 11) Some were apostles, some were prophets, some were evangelist, and others were pastors and teaches.

These souls that John saw under the altar, were all under Yahweh God's Covenant of Faith, whether they were Jew or Gentile believers in the Word of Yahweh God.   Each soul was justified by their Word of Faith in the Saving Word of Yahweh God in Whom they trusted with their lives.  Collectively, they were alive in Yahweh God's sanctuary of rest in the Body of Christ, because they faithfully lived under YHVH's Covenant of Faith that set them apart in Yahweh God's Salvation Grace IN Christ Jesus.  All of the saints, before and after Christ Jesus, would continue in Yahweh God's rest until the entry of the last, of Yahweh God's new born children of Faith IN Jesus Christ and His LIFE Giving Blood, that would allow them to enter into Yahweh God's Eternal Kingdom of the Living.

And white robes were given unto every one of them and they were told to rest for a little season until their fellow servants and brethren that would be killed would be fulfilled. (Revelation 6 verse 11.)

Here is the patience of the saints. Here are they that keep the commandments of God , and the faith of Jesus Christ. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, write: Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord hence forth. Yes says the Spirit of Yahweh, that they may rest from their labors, and their works will follow them. (Revelation 14:12-13.)

[Luke  21:17 And you shall be hated of all men for My Name's sake.]

MG 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
