Shepherds Bible Revelation Chapter 6

CHAPTER 6 1. 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. 2. And I saw, and behold a Whitehorse and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him; and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. # The word “be hold” in Greek means more than just behold. It means to leave your own bod y and go out and engulf whatever it is that you are looking upon and to take it in, in its entirety; to understand it, in all its completeness. # This appearance is diverse and oppo-site of the Lord and Savior who rides the white horse in Revelation 19:11. This is the false christ who is stand- ing in his place trying to be Him, riding on a white horse. Revelation 13:5-7 tells about the power given to this false christ. He has no power of his own, but that which is given to him by Yahveh. It would appear that Satan’s system began to build with the start of peace talks in ‘78, which are leading us to one-worldism. #The Greek word for “bow” in this verse is “toxon”, (5115 and 5088). It does not mean a bow like a bow and arrow, but rather a bow made of a sim-ple fabric. It. has the Greek base word (5088) which means to be able to bear seed. It identifies Lucifer, the Kenite. right to the very last draw. This simple colored fabric is a counterfeit for the bow that sits round about the throne of God, which is spoken of in the 4th chapter. The false christ appe ars to be Christ by imitating the Messiah. He is not to be feared by you, as it is your Father who gives him his power. The false christ will promise you that all will be yours if you worship him, just as in Luke 4:6 Satan offered Jesus power and glory if He would worship him. This has be en his theme do wn through the ages. He had b een a covering c herub that was to guard the mercy seat. However, when he de- manded that the heavens and the angels worship him instead of Yahveh, hate rather than love crept into his being. When you are approached by him, tell him what Christ told him, “Get thee behind me, Satan”. You have the power to do this. He cannot overcome the Christ that is in you, because it is that very Christ who gave him his power. The reason for this rather lengthy dissertation is that I want to impress upo n you that you need not fear Satan’s power, because it is your Father who gave it to him temporarily. 3. And when He had opened the second seal, I heard the second Beast say, Come and see. 4. A nd there went out another hor se 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. #The rider of the red horse has the power to make war. The Greek word for “another” in this verse is “allos”, (243) which means “different, yet of the same kind”. In other words, it draws its power from the same place as the white horse. They have their king in common, who is Lucifer him- self. Who is the red horse? Many scholars will disagree with this, but reference it yourself. The answer lies in Genesis 27 in the story of Esau, whose nation was called Edom, meaning “red”. When he realized he had lost his birthright by selling it for a bowl of porridge, he was very grieved and asked God, do you take all this from me, can you give me a portion? His answer was that he would become a strong nation and live by the sword a nd d ie by the sword. W e find then, that the “red horse” exem-plifies the red hordes of Russia who are now armed to take peace from the earth. W ho is their commande r? Their

leader is not God; they are atheistic. Their God is Lucifer. We are talking about a Satanic nation, a red nation. The red horse stands by and is ready to march upo n true Israel at Lucifer’s command. 5. 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. # The black horse represents famine. Famine of food, but also of truth. Death always follows famine, which we witness in the pale horse that fol- lows. The ride r repr esents Kenite merchants who have slipped in among the Jews (Rev. 3:9). The balance or scales are rigged to cheat (Amos 8: 1-5) which brings about the inflation in the next verse. 6. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four Beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three meas-ures of ba rley for a pe nny, a nd s ee thou not hurt the oil and wine. # This verse describes inflation. A penny, as it is mentioned here, is a denarius (1220). At the time this was written, a day’s wage was one penny. Normally, one could buy eight loaves with a day’s wage, but John describes a time of inflation when it required the entire day’s wage to buy just one loaf. This indicates that there will be hardships to face, but it is not necessary for the elect to worry. Read the last sentence of this verse. It says not to hurt the oil and the wine. In Revelation 9:4 the locusts were commanded not to hurt “any green thing”. Also, they were not to hurt “any tree”. Grapes grow on green vines and olives which give oil grow on trees. This reiterates the fact that the oil and wine will not be hurt. The “oil and wine” stand for the very elect of Israel. We are in the 3-1/2 years, and from our stud- ies in the book of Ezekiel, we know that the city (Jerusalem during the 6 day war) has been smitten and that we should be dumb no more. Therefore, these prophecies begin to speak to us with the simplicity of the teachings of Jesus Christ and we realize our responsibilities. Then it is not diffi-cult to stand up to the trials of to-day, because we know that His promises are sound and that He will not depart from us. This verse shows hardships and hurts coming for everyone except the elect. 7. And when He had opened the fourth seal. I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 8. And I looked, and beheld 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 hunge r, a nd with death, a nd with the be asts of the earth. # These beasts (therion in Greek, mean- ing venomous), a re the beast po wers of the earth. The beast powers are politically strong, secret councils of Kenites who give orders to the United States, Russia and other world governments. The death and famine described in this verse are the natural result of the inflation brought in by the black horse in verse 5. The four judgments in Ezekiel 14:21 are the same as the four in this verse. Then Ezekiel talks about the remnant. In this remnant are “both sons and daughters”, so you ladies will have a great deal to do in this. He shows also there that He has a purpo se and k nows what He is do ing. # The time is very soo n when the elect shall stand and not he hurt. Pesti- lence will not bother you. The un-sealed will be hurt, because they will be molested by Lucifer himself. You, however, as Ezekiel says will be a comfort to them because they will see your ways and your doings. 9. A nd when He had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the Word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

# Notice, the souls are under the altar, not in the ground as the eulogies say in a burial service. The soul goes hack to Yahveh, from whence it came. 10. And they cried with a loud voice, saying. How long 0 Lord, holy and true, dost Thou not judge and avenge our blood o n them that dwell on the earth” # The phrase, “avenge our blood o n them on earth”, pr oves that they had b een in this wor ld a nd were offended b y the children of Satan. 11. And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. # The Father is saving here that what is spoken of in Mark 13 must come to pass before He avenges their blood. This is to say that you, the elect, will be delivered up for refusing to accept the false chr ist. Christ will speak through you at that time. Through your lips the truth will go out to all the world. It is God’s plan. It is your destiny. 12. And I beheld when He had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; # Compare this verse to Matthew 24:29 about the moon not shining and the sun not giving off light. Both verses speak of the return of the real Messi-ah; not the false messiah riding a white horse as verse 2 mentions. So, we see the false christ (in v.2 of this chapter and v. 2 of chapter 9 trying to fulfill the prophetic return of the real Christ. 13. And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shake n of a might y wind. # Remember the parable of the fig tree in Mark 13 and Matthew 24. Learn about this parable. Jesus didn’t say possibly you should learn it, but He said, learn it! The tree is a false tree. Notice it puts forth bad figs. What does Matthew say about it? He says to pray that your flight be not in winter. When is the harvest time? It is in the summer and fall. When you are cast untimely, it means you are harvested out of season. So when the false christ appears first. (II Thessalonians 2:3), many will think he is the Christ come to “rapture” or reign. They will be deceived. They will not wait for the true Christ’s arrival; therefore they will be har-vested out of season. 14. A nd the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together: and e very mountain and island were moved out of their places. # Mountain used here is and can be construed to be political powers and structures. We know this has reference to the great confusion existing toda y, which will fall apart or dissipa te when He returns. 15. And kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, a nd e very bo ndman. a nd e very free man, hid themselves in the de ns and in the rocks of the mountains; 16. And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, a nd hide us from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

#At this time they will be well aware of the false christ and know they have been deceived by him. Because of their ignorance concerning the millennium and the true love of God, they will believe they are doomed to hell. 17. For the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? # The answer here is very simple. The 144,000 saints that were not de-ceived shall stand.
