4 Horses of Revelation Are Riding!
First Seal: The Conqueror – Revelation 6:1-2
1 Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, “Come and see.” 2 And I looked and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.
Second Seal: Conflict on Earth – Revelation 6:3-4
3 When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come and see.” 4 Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.
Third Seal: Scarcity on Earth – Revelation 6:5-6
5 When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.”
Fourth Seal: Widespread Death on Earth – Revelation 6:7-8
7 When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” 8 So I looked and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.
In 2012, we have information available such as no other time in the history of mankind. As Daniel predicted, the end days would be a time of increased knowledge. We in the 21st Century cannot imagine living life as people did only 100 years ago, or some of us who remember would not even like to go back 50 years. With the Internet, we can research or look up information in moments to verify, absorb, study, and/or understand. Much of the teaching from religious leaders and scholars are coming from a viewpoint of the past. A great deal has changed. A couple of serious changes are the mere facts that we’re now seeing additional prophecy being fulfilled. World events that are pointing toward locations and incidents that are now in line with Revelation. I have given much credit to Jack Van Impe, Hal Lindsey, Jeffery Grants, Perry Stone, John Hagee, and many others; however, most are still teaching an exact 7 year tribulation, the rebuilding of the temple, rapture pre-tribulation, the Antichrist to come in the near future, Christians removed by the rapture prior to the Antichrist and the Tribulation, and that the 4 Horses have not begun to ride. If they had, this would be the beginning of Tribulation, and the Christians would already have been removed from earth (also according to the Left Behind series by Tim LaHaye).
The beginning of the 21st Century seemed to be what most of us expected with a robust economy in the housing market and business. George W. taking America in to Iraq (Labeled as Shock and Awe) was not anything too unusual for America to get involved in militarily when you assess the global presence and involvement of the 20th Century of the U.S. Armed Forces. Most of America’s Christian leaders were supportive and approving of President George W. Bush’s actions.
It has been our patriotic duty to stand strong and firm on America, the flag, and One Nation under God while passing on our traditions and beliefs to our children. Yet now, rather than our involvement stimulating improved results, we are seeing world chaos, brutality, bloodshed, and terrorism like we have never seen before from Mexican drug lords to Al-Qaeda to revolutions and revolts in Libya, Syria, Egypt, and Iraq, with many more to come. The end times projected as violence as in the days of Noah are reality rather than someone radically quoting outdated scriptures. I actually believe we would make that Biblical account of violence in the “Days of Noah” look small in numbers, events, and bloodshed with the sophistication of our weaponry, missiles, and technology.
Rather than buying into a whole philosophy of someone’s opinions and religious beliefs, we can simply compare current events with prophesied revelation. As Jesus said, the believer will see the signs. Even so, the 4 Horses in Revelation are only the beginning of a series of 21 Judgments in Revelation. Moreover, the New One World Order is not just something that has recently been fabricated out of thin air; but has been discussed by world leaders for decades.
The White Horse is the leader surfacing and rising up to take the world into a new time of unification, peace, and trade that is beneficial to all countries economically. His crown and bow radiant his authority and his appointment to achieve his objective. These 4 Horses are representative of four variable forces that are interacting on the global climate and condition of mankind. However, the white horse is specifically directed by a world leader that many have associated as the Antichrist, or as one who has similarities to the Antichrist that has the influence to project a false peace and security that is to be short lived. The bow without arrows is suggesting a victory without bloodshed, a peace that has been accomplished by agreement rather than war.
The Black Horse is about the financial condition and economy of the world. It is projecting escalating cost for food that could be the day wages of common man while the luxury items for the elite will still be available at no increase. This can easily be seen as hyper-inflation along with the collapse of the world monetary system. Many also see it representing food scarcity leading to food rationing.
The Red Horse is about global unrest and wars. What we are seeing at this moment in the Mideast is far beyond anyone’s comprehension only a few short years ago. What we have seen in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Iraq (now that we have pulled out December 2011), and soon to be Saudi Arabia, is beyond our imagination. The labeled Arab Spring and unifying of the Muslim Brotherhood is going to be a force that will affect all of mankind with control of some of the largest oil reserves that will only add to the wealth of the Mideast. I fail to see what the Administration has labeled or referred to as our needed help and assistance to the rebel to be in the name of democracy.
The Pale Horse is more explicit in expressing death, hunger, and killing with the sword. Many suggest this is also about pandemics that are widespread disease that affects people in many different countries. AIDS is only one that is considered to be pandemic. We are now seeing many new strains of viruses. Many concerns have been discussed and presented for the safeguard and protection against the dangers of the spread and effects of the bird flu for example, and/or in requiring mass population vaccination for the new strains of flu viruses. In an age of medical knowledge and miracles, we have seen increases in all areas of autoimmune diseases that seem almost untreatable, or with only temporary relieve.
I am in extreme disagreement with anyone who cannot see that all four of these areas are intensifying and increasing at this very moment. The 4 Horses may be highly symbolic; however appear coincidently to be hitting 4 problems that are presently affecting everyone on earth. (This is from the below, written 2010-11)
The 7th Day Humbling of Mankind – December 21, 2012 – The Beginning of the End of the Age, Chapter 3: 4 Horses of Revelation Are Riding!, pp, 29-31, Published May 5, 2012.
The above was written 4-5 years ago with my book going to press March of 2012. My purpose in writing my book was a soft approach for people to start to research the Truth for themselves. I held back throughout the book not wanting to be perceived political incorrect nor religiously radical.
In this time frame to present we have seen Muslim Brotherhood go to ISIS with Obama explaining a more serious threat of ISIL which is a label related to the 14th Century Ottoman Kingdom that controlled the Mideast and the South Shore line of The Mediterranean Sea. We have seen Libya, Egypt, Iraq, Syria, and Turkey all being infiltrated with Islam and ISIS control with major regime changes. We have seen the quickly growing problem of the refugees coming into Europe and the abrupt and rapid developing problem of the Open Southern borders of America.
I have passionately followed the Prophetic Teachers thinking when Acts of God and Acts of Men fell in to obvious compliance with Matthew 24 and Revelation, church leaders would unify and adhere to the Word of God. This has not happen. They have stuck with the Counter-Reformation Jesuit Priest teaching that the 70th Week of Daniel is the 7 year Tribulation when the AntiChrist will be revealed with Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the Christians; never having to deal with the AntiChrist or Tribulation. The beginning of the Reformation in 1513-15 was when Martin Luther discovered the Pope – Papal Bull – Vatican – Rome was the AntiChrist. According to the book of Daniel, there will be 2 Kingdoms headed by AntiChrists directed by Satan himself. Revelation describes it more completely with the Beast of the Sea (Religious Leader) and the Beast of the Land (Military Leader and False Prophet). The 7 Churches in Revelation are not Church history, nor the Church Dispensation Period. There was none, the Holy Roman Empire had it origin in 315 when Constantine conquered Rome. They took over religion, declaring anyone a heretic that went against them with exile and burning them at the stake. The coming to America was stimulated by the protesters (the meaning of Protestant) of the Catholic Church and the Vatican, and Church of England and King George. The Forefathers of America were running for their lives; the Great Men who created One Nation Under God. What a horrific and horrible history of religion. Obama even mention that the Christian Crusades were not much different than what ISIS is doing now. He sounded like he was justifying ISIS as the Christians started it first.
As I stated above, written in 2011-12: “These 4 Horses are representative of four variable forces that are interacting on the global climate and condition of mankind.” One of the above listed Prophetic Teachers that I have followed for years, made a statement that not much has happen in the last 2,000 years until Israel became a Nation in 1948. I beg to differ. We have a tragic and sordid history that goes back to the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ when the Temple Leaders who convicted Christ continued to persecute the Christians. The 70 A.D. Destruction of the Temple that Jesus prophesied to his Disciples in Matthew 24 was massive with over a million Jews killed with their young men taken back to build the Coliseum used for further killing of the Christians and Jews. Rome has been the dominate factor since the Execution of Jesus Christ. After the collapse of the Roman Empire, they went to a more sophisticated conquering of the World, the Holy Roman Empire. The oldest structures in America are the Missions in Sante Fe, N.M and St. Petersburg, Fl. Even though the Holy Roman Empire formal establishment was much later, they want to claim the last 2,000 years by declaring the Apostle Peter as the 1st Pope. Now consider some of the other history, 1099 Christian Crusades, the Dark Ages, the Spanish Inquisition, etc. The Holy Roman Empire stifled Culture, Education, Music, Christianity; chaining the Bible to the Pulpit in Latin, building their Cathedrals representing Heaven on Earth with the Pope representing Christ on Earth. Anyone who differed with them was declared a Heretic and killed.
The White Horse with Rider is a perfect description of the Holy Roman Empire who went into every country and language. They have been the greatest Political and Religious influence the World has ever seen. The Vatican controls the World Bank that controls the Financial climate of all the other banks that control the financial climate and economies of the World. This AntiChrist has been around a long time; however identified 500 years ago. Now, can you identify the Lady in Purple’s Harlots.
We are Here and Have been for Centuries!
The Black Horse origin could go back to Nimrod and the Tower of Babel. This Babylonian Systems has always been prevalent from Nebuchadnezzar ruling the World from Babylon to Daniel’s Dream interpreting Future Kingdom; moving forward to Europe and America. It is all about the Economy; the Money and Wealth that Rules the Nations and the World. It is referring to the Day when there will be global collapse from Hyper-Inflation.
We are here; see the PIGGS of Europe economic collapse, the unbelievable situation in Venezuela of no food – America 20 Trillion in Debt, etc. We are Here!
The Red Horse that is on going rumors of War and actual War has too often been Communism and Fascism that has oppressed people and taken their individual rights away with their governments owning them like property. Amazing too often Red is their color, whether it be Red China, Russia, or the Red Rising Sun that Japan had on its fighter planes in War World II.
We are here, and have been at least throughout the 20th Century with the beginning of World Wars!
The Pale-Green Horse is the newest development rapidly growing. Islam! Their goal and mission is to take over the World. The Anti-colonialism mentality that the White Elite of Europe and America have taken their Resources and Oil from the Countries of Color for their own greed and wealth; unconcerned with the people in those countries that are in poverty and hunger. Many have said the AntiChrist will come from Islam/ However, to be a true Antichrist, you must come from the inside professing to be a Christian when you are NOT! Can you think of anyone that might qualify or that this might fit? He has been deceiving even the Elect for 8 years. Interesting that Islam’s color is Green!
We are here: “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” Jesus speaking: Matthew 24:21-22
The Fifth Seal: Martyrs
9And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: 10And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 11And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. Revelation 6:9-11 – We are here; the most sordid and barbaric crimes of our Brothers and Sisters in Christ in the Middle East,
and America’s Churches have gone silent while holding close to their Prosperity Ministries that resemble the 7th Church in Revelation.
The Sixth Seal: Terror
12And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 13And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 14And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15And 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; 16And 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: 17For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? Revelation 6:12-17 We are close; can you image God and the Lamb not hearing the Martyrs, “And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?”
God’s People will Be Preserved
1And 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. 2And 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,3Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
4And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
5Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reubenwere sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. 6Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses weresealed twelve thousand. 7Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. 8Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
Praise from the Great Multitude
9After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;10And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. 11And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, 12Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, beunto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
13And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? 14And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. 16They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. 17For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. Revelation 7:1-17 –
We are close as Birth Pains are rapidly increasing. The 7th Seal sounds like the Rapture to me of the Saints; the 7th Blessing of Revelation, the Blessing for the Saints that attend the Wedding Feast. And for those who stay on Earth; 14 more Judgments to come from God and His Lamb – The 7 Trumpets and the 7 Bowl Judgement before the King of kings returns with his Army of Saints on the White Horses to intervene the destruction of Israel, and to put all the enemies of God at God’s footstool.
We have reach a point in time that man’s problems are beyond human resolve.
