Text: Hazon (Revelation) 6| 7- -8.
I invite you to consider that a horse is a symbol. You won’t see a literal horse. I invite you further to consider the spiritual equivalents of each element in the Pale Horse Seal Opening event. Here in Revelation 6 John was allowed to see this awful vision, through a portal to the future.
7 When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” 8 And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth.
A FOURTH OF THE EARTH by war and judgment of unbelief (physical and spiritual), by physical and spiritual famines, and by diseases in the body as well as in the mind and by viruses and demons (wild beasts therion that take over the person).
In this article, I will bring in Greek words as follows:
Thanatos – Death
Hades – the dimension for souls of the dead, who are not saved
Exousai – Prvilege, authority.
Rhomphaia – a sabre weapon, fashioned like
Therion – wild beasts, bacteria, microbes, the “invisible enemy”.
The Quarter Effect
The Pale Horse Seal Opening promises 1/4 of the earth will be subject to deaths by three angles. We get to read about it now ahead of the curve.
The horse has a rider called Thanatos. He has a partner called Hades that follows him.His areas of strengths are as follows.
Exousia – Authority
The Rider, already being called a deadly name as Thanatos, has received the authority – Gk. Exousia – translated at places as “power”, but it is actually authority, to bring harm. It means whoever gets it deserves it. It must be past the time of grace. Exousia is a privilege much like if you are a resident of a town, you have the privilege to use the public library. This rider has been granted privilege by the Almighty to do what he has been wanting to do and his wish was granted.
The authority is limited, however, it is sanctioned, not free range. Only 1/4 of the earth will taste his destruction
The full extent of that authority leads to killing. I imagine that could be a process. To use a prevalent and current example, a person who is in underlying health conditions will be more subject to the devastating attack of the biological GM virus. Many patients who have joined the deaths to date are either elderly people or patients with underlying health conditions. By SARS-CoV-2, it is pestilence. Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications. The complications will become the real cause of death. To date the toll is estimated in the last six months only to be 603k.
And then upon the next release of a super GM virus, all those today who have been compromised considerably and survived, will join the next statistics of people with “underlying” health history. The cycle will repeat itself. I understand there are uneducated people who compare the SARS-2 virus as the common cold virus. The success of the biological GM virus depends on people like that to accomplish the fatality that it was designed for deep in military laboratories.
The demise can be violent or it can silent and anywhere in between. It can come in pounding waves of releases or as combination of resource breakdown and staff shortage. But it leads to expiration. When taken into consideration of both the physical and the spiritual realms, these killings will also make 1/4 of the earth disappeared out of the land. Those that never had salvation will cease to have that valuable window of opportunity upon maturation of the time. Those that did not hold fast to their salvation will sell it (by taking the mark of the beast, for instance) voluntarily or will forfeit that birthright which was granted to him or her lovingly by the Messiah.
Rhomphaia – Sabre
Sword, Gk. Rhomphaia, in both physical and spiritual senses, translates to warfare and God’s judgment on the ungodly Christians dead and alive. Here is a wise saying of Messiah –
“But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I tell you, fear him!” – Luke 12| 5
To those professionally hired to establish religion and contribute to Mystery Babylon, heir Christian ministries went up in smoke after they were found out at the pinnacle of their respective careers. At the time of the Appearing of Christ, any believer who is found to hold evidence that is self incriminating, such as a hard drive of porn cookies, swindled dirty money, drugs and paraphernalia, unresolved pardons toward peer offenses, will be judged by the Word of His mouth — the Rhomphaia.
Here is one small example that will trip up many self-righteous Christians. In Matthew 5 on the mound of the New Covenant Torah Y’shua said,
23 “If therefore you are offering your gift at the altar, and. there remember that your brother has anything against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way.
Limós – Hunger
Famine. Gk. limós. A famine in a city results in harvest failures, empty shelves, malnutrition, unrest, envy, thefts, rioting, lootings, inflation and a collapse of society order. A famine in the heart brings a soul that is devoid of the Word of God, while to quote the concept give by AW Tozer, the soul may have been saturated with corrupted doctrine and lies and evil thoughts and there is no room left for the Messiah. That happened in Bethlehem.
That person may likely have followed Christ but he did not eat the Bread of Life, a metaphor for fellowshiping with Messiah upon invitation. This happens mostly to stubborn people who cannot give God praise, who are entitled and who have hidden sins. Their conscience still condemns them from drawing close to Christ. They become their greatest adversaries, with or without the satanas.
I hear of many people pray for their friends: May God draw them close to Himself. A lot of compassion and well wishing go into that prayer. But understand people are made in the image of the Almighty (Beresheet 1| 26). Humans are not puppets, are not an automobile that broke down by the freeway. While by a miracle of grace, your vehicle may just start up again to get you on your way, the person with the stiff neck needs to be humbled first before he can be accepted by God.
On the other side of the coin, the person has a reason to not accept that intimacy. We need to tell our inner men, the leb, that we must preach repentance, turn to God and produce works meet for repentance. Or else our prayers will surely be answered: God will draw them close, but they refuse the meeting due to sin.
19 Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision:
20 But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance. – Paul to Agrippa in Acts 26
Messiah revealed a mystery:
I am the Bread of life,He who comes to Me shall not hunger,He who believes in Me shall not thirst.
However, the person who eats that Bread must examine himself and confess all his sins. Or he will be viewed as being responsible for the death of the Savior and judgement will come upon him.
28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.
30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
Pestilence. An archaic, out of use description of a fatal epidemic disease, especially plague. The manuscript actually did not say pestilence, the word is Thanatos, again Death. That be the rider himself.
1/4 of the earth will also be pre-authorized to come under the man called Thanatos, to die at his hands, in this challenge once the time is up. That man is on the earth today and he is alive. His true identity has not been revealed to the world yet. All we know is he works with a partner called Hades that follows him wherever he goes.
Physically Thanatos will work on projects, it means the morgues and the pathologists will be kept busy. Incinerators may chip in to help out the overrun cremation facilities. On the other hand, the disease of the soul in the spiritual sense may mean souls will go to destruction for not holding onto the Good News of Redemption. Since the word points to a fatal state, it is a warning today that people must heed.
Messiah says, in John
12 Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
One whose soul that will be ushered to its death will not have the light of the Messiah Y’shua in him or her. True sheep of the Shepherd will have nothing to worry about. Just keep up with what we have been doing.
