The four horses

The Lamb, Christ opened the first seal and John looked and  saw;

1. A white horse. (6 vs 2)
Its rider carried a bow, and a crown was placed upon his head; he rode out to conquer in many battles and win the war.
  • a time of peace, progress and victory and success in every way, be it evangelism, everything going as intended. 
2. A Red horse. (6 vs 4)
Times of desolation, judgment, war and persecution.
- All happening to "...take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another..."

3.  A black horse (6 vs 5)
  • woe, mourning and darkness and ignorance. "For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee." Isaiah 60:2 
He that sat on it had a pair of balances in his hand meaning;
  • the knowledge and practice of true religion will became scarce. 
  • famine of the word of God and of true religion
  • the necessities of life will be at excessive prices, and more costly.
4. Pale horse
The rider was Death, the king of terrors.
  • This is the moment when whatever may tend to make life happy is destroyed.
  • when  the mystery of iniquity is completed, and its power extended both over the lives and consciences of men. 
All of the above horses are instruments of God's anger, or judgments upon the disobedience of mankind: all public calamities are at his command; they only go forth when He, God allows them, and no further than he permits. God gave them power.

Who is a blind leader?

And they sought to lay hold on him, but feared the people: for they knew that he had spoken the parable against them: and they left him, and went their way. And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words. And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not? Mark 12:12-14 KJV.
They came to Jesus saying flattering things about him, and all they wanted was to trap him.
When they came, they said; He was truthful and didn’t care what anyone thinks,He was not partial to any, he did not regard the person of men, but  that he taught the way of God truthfully, and then they asked, Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar or not? Although it’s true Jesus was truthful, that he taught the way of God truthfully and does not show partiality, but it’s not true that he doesn’t care what…

Called to be sons!

We’ve all been called to preach, to proclaim or tell the Good News of the Kingdom of God. He won’t change His mind about what He has called us to do, to go tell unbelievers that there is God. So let’s all obey God and answer the call to preach and  help people get saved.
We have to be faithful, obedient, and patient in order to fulfil God’s call. God may temporarily lead you to do something. That doesn’t mean the gift is gone or that the calling has disappeared, because the gifts and callings of God are without repentance. In other words, God doesn’t change His mind!
According to 1 Corinthians 12:27, you and I are the Body of Christ and members in particular. Each member has a role to play in the Body, and yourself my friend must know what God has called and gifted you to do.
You may not have heeded or discovered God’s call on your life in the past, but that call is still there my friend. The gifts and callings of God are without repentance! Make a decision today to stir up the gift with…

What defiles a man?
CERTAINLY

BUT

Who is a blind leader?
Hear and understand;
Any who teach for doctrine the commandments of men is a blind leader, these are they who Jesus said, "in vain they do worship me" Matthew 15:9. 
What are commandments of men?
The commandments and doctrines of men are rudiments of this world, which aren’t spiritual put by men  to have you submit to their regulations, things such as saying; "Touch not; taste not; handle not; Which all are to perish with the using" Colossians 2:21-22. These things have a reputation for wisdom but promote only self-made religion, …
