One of the most compelling images of coming events described in the book of Revelation are Christ opening seals and four horsemen riding forth, as described in Revelation 6. They are:
- First Seal – a White Horse, ridden by a conqueror
- Second Seal – a Red Horse bringing war
- Third Seal – a Black Horse bringing scarcity and famine, and
- Fourth Seal – a Pale Horse bringing widespread death on the earth.
The four horsemen have not arrived yet, but it appears they have left their stables, and are on the way. Furthermore, the rider on the white horse may have already arrived! Fortunately, they will not all arrive at the same time. Can you hear the hoofbeats? They seem to be getting closer and closer.
These horsemen and their arrival on the scene will be described in this document, with the coming Parts II through V describing each of these horsemen in more detail. To learn more, check out this issue: “The Hoofbeats Are Getting Louder PART I”. You won’t want to miss it.
I realize there are many perspectives on the end times held by sincere Christians, and many facets yet to unfold. As always, I encourage you to QUESTION EVERYTHING, do your own research, and take this to the Lord for confirmation.
Have a blessed day, and always remember Who is really in charge.
