The Four Horsemen of Revelation 6, Part 3: “The 2nd Horse”

To read Part 1, go here…June 14 (The Four Horsemen of Revelation 6, Part 1: “How To Undertsand Revelation”)

.

“And when he had opened the second seal,

I heard the second beast say, ‘Come and see’. 

And there went out another horse that was red:

and power was given to him that sat thereon

to take peace from the earth,

and that they should kill one another:

and there was given unto him a great sword.”

Revelation 6:3, 4

 

.

.

.

.

.

Here above is the short description of this red horse whose rider was given power to take peace from the earth, and he was given a great sword.

.

Once again, there is great confusion as to what or who is this second horseman. Most theologians and Bible teachers believe this to be speaking of Satan. A few believe it to be speaking of Christ, since Christ Himself testified…“Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. ” Matthew 10:34

.

Yes, if Christ had not come into the world, the earth’s inhabitants could have enjoyed their selfish lives until they finally went down into their graves.

RED SYMBOLIZES BLOODY CONFLICT

.

But God was not going to let us go that easily! And so, through His Divine Son, war was declared on this planet-in-rebellion.

.

And the Gospel of Salvation would stir up Satan and his angels, causing them to wage a relentless war against Heaven!

.

And so, this rider on the red horse is probably referring to Christ, especially since he had been given “a great sword” which is the Word of God, the Bible!

.

.

.

.

RED ALSO SYMBOLIZES CHRIST’S BLOOD

.

Now this red horse and horsemen apparently symbolizes the second aspect of the Gospel: the salvational blood of Christ’s atonement for mankind.

.

.

.

.

RED ALSO SYMBOLIZES BLOOD OF THE MARTYRS

.

But as we read Bible prophecy, we are forewarned that God’s people may also have to spill our own blood, because of persecution.

.

And the Bible let’s us know that Mankind will often have to spill their blood as well.

BLOOD OF CHRIST, OF BELIEVERS, OF HUMANITY

And so, this second horse and rider seems to be representative of all the blood spilled: by Christ, by Believers, and by humanity at large.

FLOOD-WATERS OF SATAN CONSTELLATION

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman…And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads…And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Revelation 12:1, 3, 15

7 HEADS, 10 HORNS, & 7 CROWNS OF THE DRAGON

.

“And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.” Rev. 12:3 

.Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

In Revelation, the Dragon of Revelation 12 is described as having seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. However, the Dragon Constellation up in the night sky does not. But God has faithfully created the wave of water, in such a way, as to illustrate this same concept of the seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. Because this wave of water is basically composed of ten stars. The main body of the wave has seven stars (#‘s, 1 thru 7). And the tip of the crest of the wave has the other three stars (#’s, 8, 9 & 10). So we have this 7 and 10 numbering. And this gives us a great clue, as to where in the Bible we should look, to find out the riddle as to just what or who do these 7 heads, 10 crowns, and 7 horns represent. Because, the Bible speaks very much about floods and waters as being associated with Satan (the Dragon).
