REVELATION CHAPTER SIX VS. 1 - 8
The first horse is the white horse, it’s rider wears a crown. The crown is described as ‘stephanos’ which means ‘conquerer.‘ The person is ‘AntiChrist’ – the counterfeit Christ. In imitation of Jesus, he has one natural parent and one supernatural parent (Genesis 3:15). AntiChrist will accept Satan’s offer of all the kingdoms of the earth if he would worship him, which Jesus declined in Matthew 4. As the Father gives his authority to the Son, so Satan will give his authority to AntiChrist. As the Holy Spirit causes people to worship God, so the False Prophet of Rev. 13, causes people to worship AntiChrist. The red horse brings the first of three wars of the tribulation period. The black horse brings famine, a natural consequence of the war. The last horse represents death; 1/4 of the worlds population will die.
And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, 'Come'. And I saw, and behold, a white horse, and he that sat thereon had a bow; and there was given unto him a crown; and he came forth conquering and to conquer. And when he opened the seond seal, I heard the second living creature saying, 'Come'. And another horse came forth, a red horse; and to him that sat thereon it was given to take peace from the earth, and that they should slay one another; and there was given unto him a great sword. And when he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying. 'Come'. And I saw, and behold, a black horse; and he that sat thereon had a balance in his hand. And I heard as it were a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying , 'A measure of wheat for a shilling and three measures of barley for a shilling and the oil and the wine hurt though not'. And when he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, 'Come'. And I saw, and behold a pale horse; and he that sat upon him the name was Death; and Hades followed with him. And there was given unto them authority over the fourth part of hte earth, to kill with sword, and with famine, and with death, and by the wild beasts of the earth.
