The Tribulation Revelation Chapter 6:1-2

To see Revelation Chapter 6:1-2 without my comments click HERE.

"In religion and politics people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination, from authorities who have not themselves examined the questions at issue but have taken them at second-hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions about them were not worth a brass farthing." Mark Twain

I am starting this particular post with a quote that I have used before from Mark Twain. The reason I use this particular quote is because I believe that it rings true that most people do not research information for themselves in order to develop any particular political or religious belief. Most will read a newspaper clipping and pretend that what an article says is their opinion in politics, while others will attend a church and sit in a pew just to be spoon fed information, such as they will be raptured off the planet before the tribulation, and will not go through any trial or hardship as a Christian at all.

It's obvious that Most Christian Ministers do not tell the truth about what they read in the Bible, or they don't read the Bible at all. This is exactly why there are thousands of Christian denominations all preaching different information, while there is only one Bible, or one true word of God that they should objectively get their information and faith from; Romans 10:17. There is no one person that is righteous enough to tell another how to interpret the Bible because there is a human factor involved no matter the intent. This includes myself also. 

The Ministers job is to share what they have learned and encourage others to study the Bible. Most Ministers I believe, are in it for the money because if they have an actual calling; John 6:44, and are studying the Bible, they should have no problem standing up and talking about what they have learned during the previous week, I really have a hard time believing people have to be coerced into talking about their faith with money. Most churches do not encourage self study. These churches I speak of even put the verses up on the screen in front during their services and will not have you find the verses in the Bible for yourself. Everyone should have the ability to find a verse in the bible. It's up to each individual to research the information provided to see if it's true to the Word of God just as the men of Berea did in; Acts 17:11.

In the end, only you will answer for your faith that directly influences your actions, not your ministers.

I have posted before about the subject of Christians not being raptured and how they will go through the Tribulation. To see this post click HERE. For the sake of brevity, I will not go deeply into detail of the origin. If someone is led to study the “Rapture Doctrine” then a good place to start is with a man called John Darby who created it and started promoting it around 1830. His claim was that a woman called Margaret McDonald had visions which he learned about. The story of her visions are written in a book called “The Rapture Plot.” by Dave MacPherson. MacPherson considered Margaret MacDonald to be occult influenced. 

The Message Of The White Horseman Chapter 6:1-2.
The Tribulation begins with a brief introduction of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The Messiah breaks the first seal of the scroll with the noise of thunder. This breaking of the first seal sets in action a rider on a white horse that is crowned, going forth and conquering. Although there is not a lot of detail in this Chapter about the horseman, there is a parallel passage that was told by the Messiah of the last days, it's called the Olivet Prophecy.  This prophecy is recorded in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21. Looking at Matthew 24:3 his disciples (the Messiah's students) asked what will be the signs of the end of the world (age)? He answers in Verses 4 and 5 were that the Tribulation begins with a false Christ that will come to oppose the elect. There were false Christs during the time of the Messiah, and they have been in existence and are continuously creeping in even now; Jude 3-4, 1 John 2:18. This person is not the Messiah as taught by some churches, but rather is someone who opposes God with world wide influence. He is identified as having a bow in his hand instead of having a sword which is the Word of God; Hebrews 4:12Ephesians 6:17, Revelation 6:2.

It's also important to notice that the Tribulation begins with a false Christ and the Tribulation ends with the coming of the real Christ at the last trump; Revelation 19:11-12. This person will deceive many because it is commonly taught that Christ returning will be the next event. This will allow him to claim he is the Messiah; 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4. Historically, in the past, when someone calls themselves "Jesus" there followers usually end up dying horrifying deaths. 

One such example of how following a false Christ leads to death is the People's Temple in Jonestown, Guyana when Jim Jones ordered 913 people to drink poison Kool-Aid on November 18, 1978. There was only a few survivors that escaped the carnage by walking 30 miles through the  Jungle for help when the carnage began. This is only because they ran into the jungle early when they saw the signs. Can you imagine the deaths that will occur when the entire world follows a false Christ? It will make Jim Jones look like a choir boy.

Only the elect of Israel (those who keep Yahweh's laws by Revelation 14:12), will be able to tell the difference between the false Christ and the Messiah. This is because the Bible has been twisted out of proportion by many thousands of denominations putting forth the word of their denominational beliefs instead of God's word; Matthew 24:24

The White Horse will only be the beginning followed by the other 3 horses. We are told to "come out of her" Revelation 18:4 to avoid the coming wars, famines, and pestilences of the Tribulation. In Matthew 24:15-26 we are to flee to the mountains when we see the "Abomination of Desolation" spoken of Daniel the Prophet, do not return to get anything. Leaving early was the exact reason why there were a few that actually escaped the Jonestown massacre.
You should have the ability to move quickly and to drop out of the coming chaos. In other words be packed and ready to move. These verses indicate a sense of urgency, and should be taken literally.

Praise the Lord!

  1. Praise the Lord some left early, they now are alive to tell the story. This man was a dynamic man. But just a man and he led so many people down the wrong path. One has to research the scriptures for them selves. Thank you for your research and hard work.
