The white horse = The A.C. ?? (Antichrist)
First Seal: The Conqueror
Many teachers tell us that this rider of the white horse is the AC (Anti-Christ)
Is that correct?
Let us have a look at the first seal and what is happening.
1. The Lamb (Jesus) opens the seal: Now we can see what is written on this book the Lamb is holding. See 5:1-14.
Who else is able to open the book than Jesus, Who was in God’s judgment for my sin?
Nobody is able to open it but the Lamb of God. So the Lamb is able to give a start to what is written in and on the outside of this book. Now here in Revelation God’s judgment comes over mankind, the unbelievers, after rapture.
Chapter 6:1-8 shows us these judgments. They are terrible.
The 2nd up to the 4th seal most teachers agree that they will bring:
But the first seal gives us some questions.
What is meant?
Must it be a judgment from the Lord, the first disaster to come?
2. The four living creatures we find also in Ezekiel 1 and 10. There they look a bit different, but they must be the same as in Rev. 4. They have the same faces in both books.
In Ezekiel these living creatures are closely connected with a kind of wheels. When they lift themselves from the earth, the wheels are lifted as well.
When we compare these wheels with the 4 seals in Rev. 6, we see that the wheels are a kind of judgments from God. The various faces (Lion, Ox, Man and Eagle) tell us something of the 4 judgments. Ox: War, Man: Famine, Eagle: Pestilences.
And the Lion? The AC?????
Is the AC a judgment from God?
Can the AC be so closely connected to the Judgment Throne of God?
Now when the first seal is opened the first Living Creature says with a VOICE OF THUNDER: Come.
Only this time it is mentioned to be a VOICE of THUNDER.
The roaring of a lion?
Thunderous sounds are often connected to earthquakes in the Bible.
4. But let us still have a look at another chapter in Ezekiel first.
In Ezekiel 14:12-23 we meet these 4 judgments also: famine, wild animals, war and pestilence. The result?
Verse 21: For thus saith the Lord GOD; How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the noisome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast?
THERE WILL HARDLY ANY MAN OR BEAST BE LEFT!
Something like that we read in Revelation 6:8b And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
These 4 judgments will leave 25% of the earth without inhabitants.
5. Now let us look again at the first seal and the white horse.
a. It is coming to conquer and to overcome!
Man can do nothing against it!
b. It could be something like an earthquake, when we hear the sound of thunder and the roaring of the Lion.
c. White is also clean in the Bible (white clothes of the priest etc.)
d. This rider has a bow. It could be a bow from bow and arrow. This could mean that this disaster strikes without us seeing where it is coming from. Like an arrow that is shot from a distance.
But the bow can also mean: rainbow. Above the throne of God in Ezekiel 1 there is a rainbow. This can be a judgment with water, but not worldwide. Water is also to clean.
e. In Zechariah 6: 8 we read that the white and black horse go to the north country and this will quiet God’s spirit.
When we overlook all these parts from Scripture we must say that the white horse can impossibly mean the AC.
a. The AC, man can overcome, spiritual, but it will cause their death.
b. Not God but satan is bringing the AC in position. He gives him all his power.
c. The AC will stand up to God and place himself in God’s place on the throne in Jerusalem .
That is not quieting God’s spirit.
d. The AC will not clean the land, but make it even dirtier with occultism.
e. The lion is a picture God uses often for Himself in the OT. Satan is the snake or dragon.
Enough evidence that the first seal that is opened is NOT the AC.
What is it then?
A judgment that triggers the next one. After the first seal comes the second one: war. See for it Ezekiel 38, 39.
Most likely it is a judgment that, together with the next three seals, kills 25% of mankind.
MORE THAN 1 BILLION PEOPLE!
A disaster so great and nobody can do anything to avoid it!
It must be a natural disaster that has something to do with an earthquake and or water.
But also in such a way that many millions will die and that war in the ME is possible after this disaster.
Because the next seal that is opened brings war to the ME.
Now the US is still protecting Israel in many ways. No country can afford now to fight against Israel . The US will strike back at once.
I believe the first seal that is opened, the white horse has something to do with the US after rapture.
