THE FIVE HORSEMEN

 

The
fascination of watching horses is universal. With tail flying and nostrils
flared, the horse makes a powerful being. We also watch with wonder when the
horse is mounted, the kill of the horseman apparent. Such horses and their
riders leave us impressed – but what of the horses and riders of the
Apocalypse? Are they as mysterious and awesome as we are led to believe?

 

Try to
imagine now, thundering towards you, four or maybe five skilled riders. Take
note now of the colour of the horses, as each appears different. One white, one
red, one black and one a sickly greenish-yellow. Firmly seated on each is a
rider. Please note, I only talk of fours riders, because evidence of the fifth
is scant, but I believe there to be another, and that horse is mauve.

 

The
apostle John wrote: “Then I saw a white horse and its rider carried a bow. He
was given a crown and he rode forth as a victor to conquer… And another horse
came forth, bright red, and its rider was given power to take peace away from
the earth and make men slaughter one another; he was given a great sword… And
there I saw a black horse and its rider had a pair of scales in his hand and I
heard a voice say: ‘Wheat at a day’s wage and barley at a day’s wage’… And
there I saw a horse the colour of ashes and it’s rider’s name was Death and
Hades followed him. They were given the power over a quarter of the earth, to
kill the people with a sword, famine, death and the wild animals of the earth.”
[Rev. 6:2-8]

 

Since this was first written, it
has puzzled the reader. Many so-called great and learned men, and women come to
that, have passed comment or have told the less intelligent to accept their
interpretation. But what was represented by these mysterious horses and their
riders? Does their ride have any bearing on life today, or, indeed has their
ride even begun? The greatest variance is found in the explanation of the white
horse and its rider. This first white rider was of much importance. The New
Catholic Encyclopaedia says the white horse represents the victory of the
gospel of truth – but whose truth? The book of Daniel says: “the white horse is
an emblem of truth of the gospel”. Whose gospel? The rider’s perhaps. The
whiteness of the horse denotes the purity of the faith. A faith in what or whom?
We can all have purity in faith in someone or something.

 

The
white horse denotes a cause. After all, it comes first, its stance is
victorious, with the promise of future triumph. Its cause is the world and its
kingdom is in the midst of us and they that oppose it, I believe, will be
overwhelmed with defeat. I believe the rider of the white horse to be the
Antichrist. My beliefs are not just personal ones. Much christian literature
goes to great lengths to denounce my views, some even acknowledge them (like
the Christian Jewish Foundation). So why do they make such efforts to keep the
truth from the people, because I believe they know that sometime, someplace,
someone like me and you will start somewhere and want to know the truth. This
is why they hide the truth from us and make it difficult in today’s world to
oppose them. Many people in the past have been content to let them have their
way, it was easy, but now the people are becoming restless, there has to be
more, things don’t add up, why should I not do this and not do that? So many
people are restless. I am restless, my search has begun.

 

Still,
back to the horsemen of the Apocalypse… Previously I stated that the white
horse and its rider represented victory to its word (the horseman). But the world
has not been informed or encouraged to seek the true word or its meaning. I was
told that there is no place in the bible where it says that the rider of the
white horse is the Antichrist, that he could not go forth conquering and
complete his conquest. I say that if they go to extremes to disprove this fact,
they must feel the fact was there is the first place. I believe the Antichrist
has already commenced his ride and nears its end. He now deserves the
recognition from his true followers and the way should now be made clear by us
for him and those seeking his truth. His conquest will not fail; his enemies
will be destroyed.

 

Later in
Revelation, the white horse is mentioned again. Here it is called Faithful and
True. The word of God, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Let us examine these
statements.

 

Faithful
and True… faith… trust: belief in one’s word… loyal: keeping one’s promise.
True… agreeing with what really happened. Not false. These two words explain
themselves. We should place importance on who is saying them.

 

The word
of God… who do we see as God, who do you see as God? To me there are many gods.
My God was born with me, grew with me and is very much part of me. I was told:
“the only god is the one between your ears”. I have no reason at this stage to
think any different. Bearing this in mind, I must live by my word, act
on my word and be answerable to my word by whoever challenges it.
The word of God – words spoken by me.

 

King of
Kings, Lord of Lords. We accept that the Antichrist is above all else. Words
cannot for me at this stage describe his position. It is something I accept,
but obviously, the more I learn, the higher I must place him. This would be so
with any person. The more you know someone and learn from him, the more, it
follows, you place him in high esteem.

 

So I am
left in no doubt that the rider of the white horse is the Antichrist. His ride
has begun; as he leads and instructs his direct followers, they, in turn, will
lead and instruct me. I will lead and instruct others, and so it will continue.
“Go subduing in the midst of your enemies”. There will be many people so called
but few will be chosen to ride with the horseman. The tasks ahead will be
testing ones. It could take past my lifetime to complete, and we shall look at
this further, but we shall all play our part in bringing about the truth.

 

The
second horse is bright red and it is said that the rider was granted permission
to take peace away from the earth so that they should slaughter one another,
and he was given a great sword. Could this sword be significant, inasmuch as it
is the emblem of Satanism. Could the peace that was taken be the complacency of
the people and not peace at all, could this feeling be the feeling when
suddenly something comes to light and people have to face the truth. People say
anything for a quiet life and, up to now, have been able to go along with this.
I think the only slaughter will be the justice which those people will reap who
have lied and prevented us from knowing and seeking the truth and living our
lives our way.

 

The
third horse is black and its rider has a pair of scales. The rider’s call is
today very true and we know it as inflation. As the world progresses, people
naturally want more or, at least, the same as their supposed betters. There is
bound to be unrest. Until now, people have been content with their lot. It was
unheard of to ask for what you wanted or something different. I never thought
that I could ask for something I wanted, not directly, so have spent too many
years beating around the bush, hoping someone will realise what I am about and
give me what I want without actually having to ask. I have been conditioned to
accept my lot. Now people are awakening and realising, like me, that they can
have what they want and do what they want. Agreed, the world is still not ready
and, to a certain extent, we must go about this in the correct manner. In any
form of civilisation, there will always be those who will take unfair advantage
of a given situation, so I feel it is up to us, or people like me I should say,
to prevent or stop this happening. I will not let these people use my beliefs
as a curtain to place around their misdemeanours. These people will be uprooted
and shown for what they are.

 

The
fourth hose was a sickly greenish-yellow and brought death. Death comes to us
all, we may prolong it, we may even hasten it, but we cannot elude it. If we
live our chosen path to the full, we should not be afraid of death,
because in death we have life. The Christians talk of their soul. I believe in
a soul, but not in their way. My soul walks hand in hand with my god. My soul
is made up of my thoughts, my memory, my feelings. Physically I am sitting
here, mentally I can be there with him. Standing now right by his side. If my
body dies now, my thoughts, my mind, my soul would remain with him or wherever
I chose to be. So, although my body dies, I live on.

 

We now
come to the fifth horse and rider. He seems to ride farther back, bringing up
the rear. I chose the colour mauve because that is how I see him. I can find no
written evidence to back up my claim. The bible refers to Hades, but not as a
horseman. Rev. 6:8 “and I saw a pale horse and the one seated on it was death
and another followed him, his name was Hades”. So, this fifth horseman, what
purpose is he? I believe to tidy up, to recover anything or anyone worth
recovering. To leave behind no trace of the afore riders. A caretaker of after
events.
