See Revelation 6:1-8 here…
I don’t believe that the four horsemen of the apocalypse have been let loose yet. I believe that they will not come until The Church has been taken out of here (as in, after the Rapture.)
But with that said, I believe we can see on the news what it’s going to be like when the horsemen are let loose… only then it will be on a much larger scale.
The first horseman (on a white horse) could be the Antichrist, the one that will come to conquer. But, he’s not made his appearance just yet.
The second horseman (red horse) will come to take peace form the earth. I believe if you watch the news, you can see how peace is being taken little by little. Israel and Hamas, Isil in Iraq, and the terrorist group Boko Haram in Africa… these are just a few examples of what’s happening around the world. And don’t be fooled, these terrorist groups are cold blooded killers. I’ve seen videos of Isil killing truck loads of people in Iraq; and they kill without even batting an eye.
The next horseman is on a black horse bringing economic collapse. In the next few years, we may see the dollar collapse. People may lose their retirement or 401Ks. We’re already starting to see prices on goods and services go up. That doesn’t look like it’s going to get better, but worse.
The final horseman rides a pale horse, bringing pestilence and famine. Recent headlines tell of a flesh–eating bacteria found in Florida and an Ebola outbreak in Africa (killing around 800 people so far.) According to other articles, HIV is still a growing problem.
If you take all the all of this and add the bird, fish and other animal die-offs, earthquakes, volcanoes, sink holes, and extreme weather, you may think the horsemen have already been let loose. But, compared to what’s actually coming with the horsemen, these are just the tip of the iceberg.
ARE YOU SCARED YET?!?!
Well, don’t be… there’s a way out.
The Bible says, that we, His Church, are not appointed to wrath (1 Thes. 5:9). Also read Revelation 3:10
“Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.”
I believe that true Christians will be taken out of here before the Tribulation starts.
In the Gospels, Jesus said that as we near the Tribulation, things will get worse. He compared it to a woman in labor. The closer she gets to giving birth, the stronger the pain becomes. So, I believe what we are seeing are the “labor pains.”
ARE YOU READY???
Just something to think about.
Until next time…
