“The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John” [Revelation 1:1]
1. Mystery of God, the Lamb and the Seals.
I appreciate everyone instructed in times past to shed light on the Book sealed with the seven Spirits of God. This exposition is not a rebuttal of any Scribe or Prophet, but a fresh insight by permission and revelation of the Holy Ghost. The Bible says: “And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals” [Revelation 5:1] The HIM that sat on the throne is God, the Book was written by Him and no creature on earth and in heavens “was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon” [verse 4] God, alone, could break the seals; open, read and look thereon. Here comes the Lamb, that is Jesus Christ, from the midst of the throne, as the Bible says: “…and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth” [Revelation 5:6] There were no “two gods” on the throne. The Lamb is God manifest in Jesus Christ, stepping out of the throne to break the seals. The Book is the authorized record of “things which must surely come to pass…” on earth and in heaven, from commencement of Church age, to end of time [Revelation 1:1] The Book was sealed by the “seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth” to enforce His Will [Revelation 5:6] The Blood of the Lamb loosed the seals and in Him we have access to the Book [Matthew 13:11] The first four seals reveal Satan riding, in disguise, into battle against the Church to gain control of the world. By faith in the revelation of Jesus Christ, we know the battle was won before the first shot was fired, as it is written: “…I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” [Matthew 16:18]
2. The white horse and rider symbolize manipulation.
The Bible says: “And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer” [Revelation 6:2] The horse represent angelic strength and the rider is Satan in disguise. The white horse and rider, armed with a bow and crown, are impersonators from hell not Jesus Christ. The Lord also rode on a white horse, but had His NAME and appellations spelt out and many crowns, as it is written: “…behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, …and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself….and his name is called The Word of God” [Revelation 19:11-13] The bow without arrows represent warfare by deception against the Church, to gain the world by fraud. The rider on the white horse, armed with a bow and crown, crept into the early Church, “transformed into an angel of light” and sowed divisions [2 Corinthians 11:14] The crown, received by guile from Adam and Eve in Eden, brought hierarchy and rule of men into the Church. Those who fell to the wiles of the devil received crowns of cankered gold to draw men away from Christ to themselves, as foretold by Apostle Paul: “…after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them” [Acts 20:29-30] The white horse and rider goes “conquering, and to conquer” in every age but will never overcome the True Church [Luke 12:32] The battle has been long and fierce but the end is in sight when the Lord shall appear to take His victorious army home. Let us exhort one another with this saying as we await the coming of the Lord.
3. The red horse and rider signify intimidation.
The Bible says: “And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword” [Revelation 6:4] The red horse is the same agency as the white horse in a new costume to fight the Church and stampede the world to hell with fear and bloodshed. The “power “to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another” is embedded in SIN. Sin took peace from the world and the one that rules over sin is Satan. When Adam and Eve fell into sin, they were no longer at peace with God and fear came into the world [Genesis 3:10] The “great sword” is the power of sin working in the flesh to compel men to act contrary to the will of God and kill one another. The “great sword”, drenched in the blood of Abel, Stephen and other martyrs, is the scepter of those who receive shameless crowns of gold to wage religious wars and fight the gospel. It is not surprising therefore, that every wave of cruel repression of the gospel of Christ arose from those who claim to love God, as was foretold: “…yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service” [John 16:2] The rider on the red horse offers his sword to vain men in every age to kill and maim in the name of God or country. Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao, Lenin, Stalin, Osama Bin Laden and many more had their stint on the red horse. Terrorists of any shade that kill and sow terror in the name of God are mounted on the red horse. As we earnestly wait for the Lord to return, I warn those who stockpile guns to fight for Christ to desist. The Lord is more than powerful to fight his battles, amen
4. The black horse and rider denote control.
The Bible says: “And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand” [Revelation 6:5] The pair of balances would ordinarily indicate equity, but a voice from the midst of the four beasts exposed the ruse, saying: “…A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine” [Revelation 6:6] The black horse, rider and a pair of balances, signify satanic control over nature and material resources of the earth to wage war against the Church and draw all nations to Armageddon. Wheat and barley represent material resources of the earth to sustain the natural man. Oil and wine signify spiritual endowment to nourish the spiritual man. The pair of balances mutated over the ages through imperialism, mercantilism, colonialism, socialism, communism, etc., and now full blown capitalism. They were all designed in hell to control and apportion the wealth of the earth according to satanic purpose. With socialism and communism the devil fought the Church with starvation, but did not prevail. In the last days, unrestrained capitalism is working where others failed. The material Church is bloated with cankered gold and boasts: “…I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked” [Revelation 3:17] The denominations, overfed with “wheat” and “barley”, are fast asleep but not so the “little flock [Luke 12:32] The spiritual Church is wide awake, nourished on “wine” and “oil” and ready to be translated at the sound of the trumpet, amen
5. The pale horse and rider embody Satan incarnated on earth.
The Bible says: “And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth” [Revelation 6:8] The pale horse is the previous horses coming together for the final showdown; white, red and black, properly mixed, turns to pale. The rider has a name, DEATH, which the other riders did not have. We know that a name indicates a personality, and in this case, Satan. The Bible says: “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy HIM THAT HAS THE POWER OF DEATH, THAT IS, THE DEVIL” [Hebrews 2:14] Hell is the dominion of Satan upon the earth, that is, the new world order which the antichrist foists on all nations. The new world order is creeping on the world like a snare as the horses run unchecked on a confused world. The pale horse and rider are here, and hell is so close, but will not reign until the Saints are translated to be with the Lord. I affirm that Death and Hell are here and; “….only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth…” [2 Thessalonians 2:7-8] I do not wish you are left behind when Hell is promulgated on earth, with power to wield the “great sword” and kill a quarter of world population! Beloved, these things are true. I challenge everyone that read or listen to this message to repent and receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour before it is too late.
