Revelation 6:1 ķAnd I saw when the Lamb opened one of the
seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts
saying, Come and see.
My highlghted verses: 2 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.
But wait! There's a "he" with a little "h" sitting on this white horse. No big "H"? Who's this dude? No big "H" means it's not Him.
We see he has a bow. What's a bow? A bow and arrow, a rainbow? Please hold while I go get my Strong's Concordance. The Greek word is toxon, #5115, and means the simplest (cheapest) fabric. It's a cheap fabric made to resemble the beautiful "shekinah glory" surrounding the big "H". This guy's a FAKE!
And he even has a crown. Who gave him that? My guess is that he crowned and exalted himself, the phony, and our Father has allowed him to continue his charade for a short season. No, I take that "guess" part back. It's no guess! I've read Ezekiel 28 and I know who this little "h" who thinks he's a big "H" is. Guess what? He's going to go to "h".
Finally, we see he's been riding around "conquering" and seeing who else he can conquer. And do you know what? He's been to five churches, rode right up to the pulpits, took over command, and conquered their congregations into believing he's the big "H". "Hey, look at me, I'm on a white horse!" And on queue they read from a script "It is the Lord, Amen." Let's now sing hymn # 666.
Did Christ warn of this? Did Jesus give this seal to the disciples?
Number one seal? Deception! Watch out for dudes who claim to be Christ's representatives! Their cheap clothing may be hiding a big bad wolf!Mark 13:5
And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:
So the first "seal" to be removed in understanding God's Word shows that there are two Christ's, the real and the fake, the Christ and the Anti (Greek "instead of") christ. The majority of Christianity CANNOT tell them apart, for they do not have "eyes to see" and "ears to hear". It is the Hidden Dynasty of Religion, even churchianity, that has deceived the whole world and caused them to fall asleep. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
There were Two TREES in the garden, the Tree of Life and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil (the little box cedar), there are Two ROCKS (a big "R" and a little "r"), there are Two Christ's and there are Two Christianities, the "religion", i.e. illusion, and the "reality".
The first seal has been removed. Was it tough? Not at all! It's a "Piece of Cake", we say figuratively, meaning it's simple!
We learned that the removal of the First Seal revealed a white horse, the first of four horses in as many seals, symbolically used to represent "powers" in the earth. Each horse has a rider, one who controls the horse's reigns! These riders are commonly called "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse", and volumes have been written about them.
However, don't be mystified by the symbolism, for you will notice that the rider of each of these different colored horses is the very same entity, Satan himself. He controls the reigns of these four horses, i.e. powers (hidden dynasties), and rides upon them bringing about the religious, political, economic and educational conditions of the earth, which make up his New World Order (the political beast we'll soon read about), just prior to the return of Christ.
So in the first seal Satan rides as the "false messiah" using the power of religion to deceive the masses, even the whole world (Rev. 12:9). All they can see is a white horse and it appears good to their flesh eyes which cannot "see" the real rider. If you've followed Christ's messages to the 7 Churches in chapters 2 and 3 then you have "seen" the extent of this highwayman's robbery.
We now come to the second seal, opened by the Lamb of
For an informative look behind the scenes and into the hidden dynasty of politics, read the book by author William Guy Carr, "Pawns in the Game", Omni Publications.
Jesus also warned the disciples to watch the political stage just prior to His return, and so He gave them the second seal.
There will even be world wars (I & II) that will bring about the alignment of the nations, and so it has come to pass. And there shall be "commotions" in divers places, and so there are.Mark 13:7
And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.
 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places,...
Note: Look up the Greek word translated "earthquakes". It is seismos and is directly translated "commotions". It derives its meaning from the context, i.e. the subject. If it is (of the air) it's a gale, if it is (of the ground) it's an earthquake, if it is (of wars) it's skirmishes.
That should about bring us up to date, to 1 Thes. 5:3. It's when you hear them cry peace, peace, peace plan here, peace accord there, that the 6th trumpet blows! Listen carefully!
And now the Third Seal.
Balances are the symbol which we use for justice. So yes,
we could say that justice is out of balance, even upside down, and that
would certainly be a true statement. But these balances
aren't just used to mete out justice, they are used to weigh commerce as
the next verse so aptly documents.
Also, the fact that Hell follows with him shows that the death we are talking about is the "second death", the death of the soul, and not the death of flesh which is the first death and nothing to worry about (OK, OK, by comparison). I was just referring to what Christ said. Read it yourself.
Note: If you're looking to save your precious flesh body during the Great Tribulation by taking off in some Rapturemobile, then you've totally missed the point and you think too much of your temporary dwelling. Besides, the tribulation of antichrist, the great end time battle, is spiritual anyway. That's why you need the gospel armor. It's a time of peace and prosperity with "live" people who have been "killed", yet still walk and talk, i.e. second death victims.Matthew 10:28
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
Let's return to Rev 6:8. The phrase the "fourth part of the earth" should be read the "four parts of the earth", or even the "four corners of the earth" if you like, which means they have power over all the earth. See Acts 10:30 where exactly the same Greek word, tetartos, is translated "four" instead of "fourth": "And Cornelius said, Four days ago I was fasting until this hour;... "
And so the power they are given over all the earth is to "kill", i.e. make ready for the second death, with sword, hunger, death and beasts. What are these?
The word "beasts" in verse 8 is not the same word used to describe the "living beings", the zoon (cherubs) who guard the throne of our Father. This word is therion and means a dangerous venomous beast, such as an asp or poisonous snake. They would be the very same "children of disobedience", the tares of Matthew 13, the offspring of the head Serpent, the kenites (descendents of Cain), the same "beasts" Christ addressed in John 8, Matthew 23, etc.
Their sword, hunger and death are symbolic of their "lies", their offensive weapon of propaganda (sword), and their withholding, i.e. starvation (hunger), of truth both secular and religious, which ultimately causes spiritual death unless the people "wake up" from the slumber induced by the viper's venom.Matthew 23:33
Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
It is the Fourth Horn, the Fourth Horse, the Fourth Power on the earth, the Hidden Dynasty of Education,which permeates throughout the world, in the media, in the schools, in the institutes of higher education and in the "leaven" infected doctrines spewed forth from the pulpits. In the gnawing stage the locusts continue to eat away at the moral and religious fabric of society with their venomous lies and propaganda, consuming even now whom they may (I saw a hidden locust on TV just yesterday, hoLOCaUST). But be prepared, for as they say, "You ain't seen nothin' yet!" The swarming stage is soon upon us.
In Matthew 24:7 Jesus referred to this Fourth Seal as loimos, i.e. pestilences, meaning a "plague" or "disease" or figuratively "pests". And so it is and so they are.
And there you have them, the First Four Seals of the unveiling that you must have locked in your mind in this final generation in order to be able to begin to "unroll the scroll" and read His Word with understanding. Do you "see" them? Did you make the trip to the throne with John to take a look?
Let's recap the first four seals.

I sincerely hope these 4 Seals, unveiled by very Lamb of God, revealing the hidden truth of what is happening on the four corners of the earth just prior to His return, has been a blessing to your eyes, shall we say a real "eye opener".
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
