The Four Horsemen of Revelation 6, Part 4: “The 3rd Horse”

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

“And when he had opened the third seal,

I heard the third beast say, Come and see.

And I beheld, and lo a black horse;

and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.

And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say,

A measure of wheat for a penny,

and three measures of barley for a penny;

and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.”

Revelation 6:5, 6

This third horse seems to correspond to the Dark Ages in which the established churches of Europe made life difficult for the true worshipers of God, by means of persecution, torture, imprisonment, and death.

A COMPOSITE BEAST

 

.

Listen to the description of this 1st Antichrist Beast…“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Burgkmair_whore_babylon_color.jpgthe beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon (satan) gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” Revelation 13:1, 2

.

This beast rose up out of the sea (of nations) in Europe, causing what has been named the Dark Ages. The Bible revealed this beast to continue for forty-two months. Of course, this would have to have been forty-two prophetic, not literal months.

.

This composite beast had various heads, beastlike body components, and horns and crowns, all symbolizing the various kings, and kingdoms which have ruled over the earth throughout history.

BLACK HORSE SYMBOLIZES JUDGMENT

The rider on this black horse held up scales, which obviously symbolized judgment.

.

And the command was given to not damage the oil nor the wine which symbolized the Gospel.

A TIME OF SCARCITY

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Santo_Domingo_y_los_albigenses-detalle.jpg

The announcement “A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny;”

.

(Revelation 6:6) seems to correspond to the carrying on of the Gospel throughout this period.

.

But it seems to be a time of spiritual scarcity symbolized by the measuring out of a scant amount of grain for a penny.

SCARCITY & PERSECUTIONhttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Apocalypse_vasnetsov.jpg

.

Now as far as how this corresponds to the individual lives of Christians, it can be said that during our Christian pilgrimage on earth that we must each suffer scarcity and persecution brought on us by the Enemy of Souls.

.

.

.

.

.

A TIME OF PATIENTLY WAITING

.

Yes, the bulk of our Christian life can be a long period of patience under the suffering of various physical and spiritual maladies.

.

And as far as those scales, the Christian must tearfully witness the apostasy going on in the church-world, as judgment is brought to bear upon the false brethren who have gained control over the corporate bodies of the local congregations.

.

Yes, this dark horse is just one more part of the workings of the Gospel, not only during history, but also individually in the lives of God’s people.

FLOOD-WATERS OF SATAN CONSTELLATION

www.theheavensdeclare.net.

“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).
