The Four Horsemen Are Set for a Certain Time Frame and Order
“And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, a measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and 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 sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth,” Revelation 6:1-8.
The Spirit of the LORD showed me a scene of four horses riding towards me. One had a balancing beam that he was carrying and I couldn’t really distinguish what the others were doing, even though I know from scripture what each horse symbolizes.
I then noticed that there were wooden beams or dividing boards that were set so that there was a separation between each of the horses, so that there was a “division” between each of them.
It was like when horses are ready to run in a race like the Kentucky Derby where there are certain stalls for each before they are let loose to run.
The LORD then said:
“The horsemen need to be set in a certain order. For you see, there have been wars and rumors of wars but there is a time frame set for each of them.
The horse that is identified in Revelation as the “red one” symbolizes war. The balancing beam or scales is seen as the black horse.
For you are entering into a time when famine will spread throughout the globe. Everything will have a price that you will have to pay. For at some point, a day’s wages will buy a loaf of bread.
For the economic order of the world will fall to such a scale that people will be forced out of work, (happening now) and homes of many will be divided up to the banks and the bidders who would come to snatch them up from innocent men. (happening now.)
These are the beginning of woes. But I tell you that I will seek out and save my own. Even though the world around you is seemingly falling off the brink, I will intervene in the lives of my people. I tell you that each horse is set for a certain season. One must complete its task before the next one is allowed to come upon the scene. So be prepared for these things. Do not assume that life will go on as it always has.
The wise man prepares for the days ahead. He takes thought to those things that others may take for granted.
Use wisdom for these days. Let wisdom be coupled with love and faith. And do not lose your hope, for it will be greatly needed in the days ahead, and it will provide an anchor for you so that it will make you secure and grounded for these days.”
