Fourth Year Fourth Seal
FOURTH SEAL – PALE HORSE
Rev. 6:7 “And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come see.”
Rev. 6:8 “And I looked, and behold a pale horse: his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with a sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beast of the earth.”
Zec. 6:1-7 “…four spirits of the heavens” (He is the fourth Spirit)
Rev. 16:13 “…three unclean spirits like frogs”… (He is the third evil Spirit, (False Prophet)
This spirit is the last of the three evil spirits that will have more than one name. Notice how he is given the name “Death,” as well as being called a “False Prophet.” With Hell following him, means the last rider on the black horse has Satan’s Spirit in him. The one-fourth part of the earth is referring to the Middle East. The first Beast and this man will cause war to go rampant. Food will be costly. The Beast of the earth and nations will be Kings who will control the merchants who buy and sell in the European Common Market or one similar, controlled by the Spirit of Satan. Both of these men will be more wicked then any man upon the earth from the beginning of time. This is what Satan has always wanted. The world as his Kingdom and the souls of all mankind, and most of all, to say that he is the Almighty God? They want to be the ultimate superior beings and they will do anything to achieve it. They will be very good at what they will do. Scriptures indicate this man will show himself more in the middle of these seven years. Scripture also refers to him as a “man of war”.
Since he has the name “False Prophet” and the first Beast portraying to be a Christian also, these clues as we find them should give you a good insight of what to look for when it’s time for them to perform. I found there are not a whole lot of clues to identify this man unless he is the Jew we are looking for, the Jesuit. So we will have to work with what Scriptures are given to us. Even though he has the title of being called a Prophet, you must remember that even today we have false prophets among us. Not all who say, “Lord, Lord,” will enter into the kingdom of God. False Prophets will take on the appearance of being god-like. They will say and do everything that appears to be right. Could the Beast be a Holy Man, a deceiver? A prophet is one who will predict the future as through under divine guidance, a religious teacher or leader claiming to be divinely inspired. This should give you a good clue when the time comes to when he will start to reveal himself. They will be so good in the part they will play no one will believe they could be anything different than what they represent; something well-known and trustworthy. Otherwise, how could people believe in them when they take their positions as peacekeepers?
When they start to play their part, they will be given more power from Satan. To create war and cut off the food supply, mostly in the fourth part of the world by controlling the export and import trade in the Middle East, more commonly known as the European Community Market. Scriptures show this is what they will do. When you look at these two men as only men, you must realize they will be in control of one of the largest, repugnant, shameless institutions in the world, but man does not know this. It would not be feasible at this period of time, with the world in chaos, to look up to just anyone for solutions. For them to do what they will do, will be vast and concealed. To find what institution it will be, if it is an institution, will put you ahead of the game. You judge it. But make sure you are right.
Notice how this rider on the pale horse has the same name as the rider on the third horse, also called a Beast. Notice how this one will come out of the earth; whereby, the first one came out of a nation.
Rev. 13:11 “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth: and he had two horns like a lamb and spake as a dragon.”
With this Beast coming out of the earth, probably means it is not a nation as yet. The area where the Palestinian people dwell is still waiting to become a nation. The Two Horns that are in his head are used as a symbol to show the area where he originated from (Persia and Media). After Alexander the Great conquered these two kingdoms, made them one (Greece), he then died and his kingdom was divided into four, Egypt, Syria, Asia, and Greece, which then became the Roman Empire.
Dan. 8:20 “The ram which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia.”
Dan. 8:21 “And the rough goat is the king of Grecia: and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first king.” (Alexander)
Dan. 8:22 “Now that being broken, whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not in his power.” (Alexander)
Dan. 8:23 “And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.” (The Beast)
Dan. 8:24 “And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power (Satan): and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.” (The US and Israel)
Dan. 8:25 “And through his policy also he shall cause craft (Merchants) to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; (Stand up for Satan); but he shall be broken without hands.
Rev. 13:3 “And I saw one of his heads (Arab Nation) as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.”
Rev. 13:12 “And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.”
Rev. 13:13 “And he doeth great wonders, so that he make fire come down from heaven…”
Rev. 13:14 “And deceiveth them that dwelleth on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; …which had the wound by a sword, and did live.”
One of his heads is the clue. Remember that I told you not only that he came up among ten horns but he also had seven heads, which are seven Arab Nations? When the first Beast receives a wound in one of his seven heads simply means one of the seven Arab Nations will be crippled in battle, but it will recover and come back. The Beast will war with Israel in the beginning of the seven years and in the middle. Don’t be confused by these sayings. There are always two or more Scriptures that will back up Scriptures as to the truth of them. In the middle of the seven years, the first Beast will boast he is God and will try to convince mankind of this supernatural power by performing miracles, but the believers in Christ will be taken (Raptured) out of the way first.
II Thess. 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
II Thess. 2:8 And then shall that wicked be revealed,
II Thess. 2:9 Even him, (False Prophet) whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,”
Dan. 11:37 “Neither shall he (First Beast) regard the God of his fathers, (Islamic belief), nor the desire of women, (Nations), nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.”
Dan. 11:38 “But in his estate shall he honor the God of forces (The FalseProphet): and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honor with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.”
Dan. 11:39 “Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.” (The Prophet)
The Beast will respect the prophet for his shrewd and bold ways in war, which will help him to achieve his goal to conquer the whole world. He will shower him with the wealth of the world. When the church is taken out right before the seven years start, I am sure he will be there with the Beast, or in the background real close. Watch for him. It will then be a time of tribulation that man has never seen before. Remember, Satan has always wanted to be God. When he takes God’s throne in the middle of these seven years and says he is God, he will then believe he can do anything. This is where he will start to make mistakes. At this time the world should be able to see him for what he is. Only a few will know. Remember he will be in the Anti-Christ.
With Satan giving these two men his power to kill people in battle over one-fourth part of the earth, the area of the old Roman Empire; manipulating countries to kill one another, and holding back food for high prices; one can see it will cause extreme hunger in the world. Only the rich will survive. This is happening today in countries where there is constant war. The innocent suffer from the cruelty of the wicked and others fight to survive. During these seven years, two-thirds of mankind will die by the sword, hunger, and death and by these two Beasts. When we start reading Scriptures in the seven Trumpets, they will be showing you how the life of man will be divided into thirds.
Remember now, when you read the word “Beast”, it is to be used in three different ways. These two men are referred to as Beasts in Revelation 13. Nations and empires are referred to as Beasts in Daniel 7. The four living creatures [God’s Spirit] were also referred to as Beasts in Revelation 4:8. To apply the word correctly, know the subject to which it is referring. When we enter into the Trumpets and Vials, they will show what countries will be involved and what countries will escape from this mass slaughter of mankind. Now that we have finished the four horsemen and the four spirits that run to and fro upon the earth, let’s continue now to the fifth Seal and find who the other characters will be and the part they will play in this true life drama that is about to unfold.
