We have done a little studying on The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Remember this is my opinion and may contradict some ideas that you believe.

The first one represents The Antichrist and his false Christian-like belief system, the second represents war, and the third represents famine and an economic depression on the world. These three riders seem to make an appearance in the future that brings them to a bigger scope than previous calamities that have befallen the world. Oh, the horror that will be unleashed after the Gog and Magog war! How will people survive? Like I said in my previous article, this is before the tribulation comes where more judgment and wrath is poured onto the planet.

My senses are overloaded from this whole concept of suffering. Truly the Christian bride will be in heaven celebrating her marriage with the groom that has being waiting for her, a feast in heaven that will commence in the blink of an eye.

So we begin with the last rider upon the earth who will bring DEATH. In revelation 6:7-8 we read 7 “And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, ‘Come and see’.”  8 “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.” This rider makes his appearance on the world immediately, for he is Death that takes away life and suppresses resurrection to those who do not believe in Jesus. Some scholars have actually placed these Four Horsemen as the first three years of the seven year tribulations. God on many occasions uses the term “Sword, famine, and pestilence” in the Bible. Does this not represent the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Horseman? In Jeremiah 14:12 we read “When they fast, I am not going to listen to their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and grain offering, I am not going to accept them. Rather I am going to make an end of them by the sword, famine and pestilence.” Matthew 24:7 7 “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.” All of these are the beginning of birth pangs.  One contraction after another until the pain is unbearable and the water breaks. The sorrow will be great and the pain unfathomable. Disease has set across the Globe of an epic proportion. Everything imaginable will infect every human being. Just so we can be clear all these afflictions have been elevated to a degree we have never seen before.

Some Bible scholars contend that God will use wild beasts as judgment while others see creatures that carry disease as a form of this Horseman’s judgments. The world will be seeking for help and a way of escaping but the black specter of Death will be waiting at the door. Let’s not forget that Hades follows this rider. DEATH, DISEASE and HADES are rolled into one. Here is the secret of this Horseman, for he is the Disease that is deathly that leaves a pale ashen color on the face of it victim and send them to their grave (Hades) where resurrection will not happen. I don’t know if this will happen in the first three year periods of the tribulation. I have always believed that they will happen before that, because the bible doesn’t make it clear when it’s supposed to start. I felt that these riders were to usher the Antichrist in because he will cure and momentarily save the world with his deception, but as I read more and studied more the possibility is that these riders are on the forefront of the first three years of the tribulation period. Prophecy is amazing thing to study. It is the tool that makes us seek truth and hunger for more. We crave to see prophecy come alive because it makes us hungry for more. It satisfies our conviction of the truth. We close out this study because of that hunger. I don’t  truly know where the Horsemen stand but I do know that when they make their appearance it will be unlike anything we have ever seen.

So the last rider gallops onto the scene. He swath a path of disease and leaves the grave for the suffering who are willing and wishing to go Sheol. This rider who is pale is no other then the spirit of Death. These Four Horsemen are the judgment sent by God that will begin the BIRTHPANGS spoken of in Matthew 24:5-8. They give Birth to the tribulation and create a flood of suffering.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and please don’t hesitate to share your faith and the love of Jesus Christ. God Bless you all
