Summary: description of revelation six
the four seals of the antichrist

a) rev 19:11 speaks of a white horse
b) this in cahpter six is not the same horse
c) this rider and horse are the antichrist
d) notice the rider has a bow but no arrows
point: alot of speculation is made of how the antichrist will come into power, the bow with no arrows means he will come into power by peace. peacefully he will conquer the nations, after the church is raptured out it will open the way for him to set up his rule. he will make a false pact with the jews and europe note: 1 thess 5:2,3. this fulfills christ’s word in matt 24:5 and also fulfills his words in john 5:43.

b) rev 6:3,4 red horse of war rev 12:3 red dragon rev 17:3 red beast
c) the red represents carnage and bloodshed this is a common thing with war
point: he will come as a peace providing global superman in reality he is only satan’s superman set on the destruction of all who oppose his effort to rule the world.
3: the black horse
a) famine and war go together
b) matt 24:7 black indicates famine
c) balances represent the government’s control of food
point: the scripture indicates it will take a days work to earn enough money to buy a quart of grain, the oil and wine represent how the rich stay rich and the poor get poorer.
