Revelation 6:7-11
The opening of the 4th and 5th seals
By Brother Mike (11-26-19; 50 minutes)
   

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 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 .
9 And 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 :
10
And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth ?
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 .


INTRODUCTION   

In this study of Revelation 6:7-11, we see the opening of the 4th and 5th seals. In our previous study, we saw the opening of the first three seals. When the 1st seal was opened we saw a picture of Christ riding on a white horse, and He went forth conquering the world by His gospel as many were wrenched from the kingdom of Satan into the kingdom of Christ beginning at Pentecost in 33 AD. And, when the 2nd seal was opened we saw a picture of Satan riding on a red horse, and he took peace from the earth by the deception of Eve in the garden, and that they should then kill one another by murder, war, abortions, and the like. And, when the 3rd seal was opened we saw a picture of God Himself bringing spiritual famine upon His own churches because of their sins. 

But, now, when Christ opened the 4th seal, we see 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. What is this rider on the pale horse a picture of? The answer to this question and more, we will find in this study.

But, now, when the 5th seal was opened, we see under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 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. Who are these souls under the altar a picture of? The answer to this question and more, we will find in this study. 

Now, may our Lord, Jesus Christ grant us insight into all these things, amen.  


Revelation 6:7
:

7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see

In this verse, we first read, And when He had opened the fourth seal. The He, of course, who had opened the fourth seal is the Lamb, Jesus Christ, and we should remind ourselves that He, Christ, had opened the fourth seal to the book of God's salvation plan for the world, which means it was Christ, the Lamb, that brought about the fourth aspect to God's salvation plan just as He had brought about the first three aspects to His salvation plan that we covered in our previous study . In other words, Christ was in compete control of each aspect to God's salvation plan as He was the one who opened each seal, which symbolized Him as being the one who brought about each aspect to God's salvation plan.    

But, now, the apostle John says, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. The fourth beast is one of the four beasts (better translated as four living creatures) which we already concluded symbolize God (see Revelation 4:6 ). And, so, when the apostle John says that he heard the voice of the fourth beast (the fourth living creature), he heard the very voice of God say, Come and see.  


Revelation 6:8
:   

8 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 .

Here, when the apostle John came to see, he first said, And I looked, and behold a pale horse. More accurately, it should be translated, And I looked, and behold a green horse. This word translated as green is closely associated with the elect as we can see in other verses that use the same word. For instance, we read in Revelation 9,  

Re 9:4 And it was commanded them [the locusts] that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads

Notice that it was commanded them [the locusts] that they should not hurt ... any green thing ...  but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. Since we know that those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads refers to all the unsaved, any green thing must refer to the opposite to all the unsaved (because of the sentence structure), which is all the saved or all the elect. Thus, we see that the word translated as green is closely identified with the elect.  

Another place we see this same word green is in Mark 6 where we read about Jesus miraculously feeding the five thousand. There we read,  

Mr 6:39 And he commanded them [His disciples] to make all [the 5,000 people] sit down by companies upon the green grass

Now, why did Jesus command that these 5,000 people of whom He was going to miraculously feed be sat down upon the green grass? From an earthly perspective, He probably made the people sit down on the green grass because it was a more comfortable place to relax for a meal. But, from a spiritual perspective, He made the 5,000 people sit down on the green grass because these 5,000 people typified those who would be fed the spiritual food of the gospel unto salvation. That is, the feeding of the 5,000 was a picture of how Christ would spiritually feed and save His people throughout the New Testament era. Thus, we see once again that those who are being saved are closely associated with our word translated as green. In fact, in this case, God's people are symbolized by or identified with the green grass because it was on the green grass where the 5,000 who typified God's elect were miraculously fed.   

We will again come upon this term green grass in Revelation 8 in the context of God bringing judgment upon all the churches, which according to the Biblical Timeline began on May 21, 1988. There we read,  

Re 8:7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up

Notice how all the green grass was burnt up. Since we already learned that the green grass identifies with God's own people, that all the green grass was burnt up means that that which identified with God's people, namely what we will discover is the corporate Church, was burnt up. That is, all the Christian churches were spiritually destroyed, and so spiritually came to an end. But we will get into more detail on this when we get to Revelation 8. For now, I just want us to know that the color green such as in green thing or green grass is identified with God's people.  

Now, since we have learned that the color green identifies with being God's own people, when the apostle John said, And I looked, and behold a pale [better translated as green] horse, we know that he saw a horse identified with God's own people. 

But, now, our verse continues, and his name that sat on him [on the horse] was Death. Who could the rider of this green horse be? We know that this rider must be closely associated with God's people because the horse was green, but, at the same time, this rider must also be associated with death as his name, we are told, was death, and we even further read that hell followed with him. What's more, this singular rider is also spoken of as them in the plural, for in describing the rider on the green horse, we read, And power was given unto them [unto the rider on the green horse] over the fourth part of the earth. So, who is it that is closely associated with God's own people, has the name Death, and hell follows him, and can be referred to as them? Contrary to virtually all current teaching on this verse, this can be none other than Christ Jesus Himself, for, first, He is closely associated with God's people as they are His very own body. We read in Ephesians 5,  

Eph 5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones

And, second, when Christ brings judgment, He comes in the name Death, and hell follows Him because His judgment brings death and hell to all those who are under His judgment. And, last, Christ can be referred to as them in the plural because all His people (plural) are a part of Him; they are His body. So, in one breath, the rider on the green horse can be spoken of as being Him (Christ singular) while in another breath the rider on the green horse can be spoken of as being God's people (them in the plural). Thus, the rider on the green horse is both Him (Christ) and them (His body, the elect) who are coming in judgment to bring in death and hell, and, so, He and they are given the name of Death, and hell follows Him and them. 

Now, once again, concerning the rider on the green horse, we read, And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth. The them, we already learned, refers to the elect who are an integral part of the rider on the green horse because they are Christ's very own body, and Christ is, as we learned, the rider on the green horse. But, notice, once again, that power [authority] was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth. The number 4 in the Bible is commonly symbolic of universality or worldwideness (see Bible Number 4 ), so in that power was given unto the elect over the fourth part of the earth means that they were given power or authority over the earth worldwide to bring in the judgment of death to hell. And, how can it be that the elect brought in judgment to death and hell to the earth worldwide? Well, they proclaimed the Word of God to the whole world, and the Word of God is a two-edge sword. As we read in Hebrews 4,  

Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart

That is, One edge to the sword of the Word of God cuts unto salvation while the other edge cuts to condemnation. We read in John 3,  

Joh 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God

Thus, as the elect brought the gospel to the whole world, all those who did not believe in Christ for their eternal salvation were condemned to death and hell, and this is how the rider on the green horse, namely Christ and the elect, have brought judgment to the world from the beginning of the New Testament era until Judgment Day began on May 21, 2011. After this date, the elect have been continuing to bring judgment to the world through their proclamation of no more eternal salvation possible. So, all who were not eternally saved in Christ by May 21, 2011 can no longer be saved, which means they are already condemned to death in Adam because Adam fell from peace with God into the condemnation of God so that all who have descended from him are already condemned. Indeed, everyone now being born, and everyone who was not eternally saved in Christ by May 21, 2011 are now condemned to death and hell for all eternity. There is no longer any hope for these people as the day of Yahweh's wrath has come, and who can stand?  

Now, we are told that the rider on the green horse, namely Christ and the elect, were given the power to bring judgment to the world in four ways. Once again, the number 4 emphasizes that the judgment they bring is worldwide. In fact, since we are talking about the opening of the 4th seal, the voice of the 4th beast, the fourth part of the earth, and 4 ways of judgment, it is greatly being emphasized that the rider on the green horse, namely the elect and Christ, were given power to bring death and hell universally or worldwide. The first way they were given power to bring judgment, we are told, was to kill with sword. The sword, of course, is the Word of God as we read in Ephesians 6, 

Eph 6:17 . . . and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God .  

Thus, the elect were given power to bring the judgment of death and hell to the world with the Word of God. As the elect proclaim the Word of God, it functions as a spiritual sword to bring judgment against all the people. Those who believed in the Word of God before May 21, 2011 were eternally saved, but those who would not believe were judged to hell and death. And, now, ever since May 21, 2011, the elect are proclaiming the Word of God to judge all those who were not saved by that date. Thus, both before and after May 21, 2011, the elect have been bringing judgment worldwide with the sword of the Word of God.  

But, next, we are told that the rider on the green horse, namely the elect and Christ, were given power to bring the judgment of death and hell not only with sword, but also with hunger, or quite literally, with famine. And, the way they had brought famine to the world was by Christ, the bread of life, having spiritually removed Himself from their midst so that few, if any, could become eternally saved. This is what He did, for instance, to all the churches during the Great Tribulation from May 21, 1988 to May 21, 2011: He removed Himself from the midst of all the churches so that there was no longer available any bread of eternal life, but a spiritual famine. O, they had the Bible and its teachings, but they no longer had the Holy Spirit to apply the Word to their hearts unto salvation (see Why leave all churches? ). Thus, there was a spiritual famine that came upon them all, and the elect brought this judgment to their attention by declaration of the Word of God. And, why did this judgment of famine come upon all the churches? Because they would not remove all their High Places of false teachings and gospels. Just as Israel of Old would not remove all their High Places of worship so that Yahweh brought judgment upon them first with their destruction by the Assyrians, and then the Egyptians, and then, finally, the Babylonians, so also would not spiritual Israel, the churches, remove all their High Places of false teachings so that Christ and the elect brought a judgment of famine upon them beginning on May 21, 1988. And, according to the Biblical Timeline, ever since Judgment Day on May 21,2011, Christ has brought spiritual famine not only upon all the churches, but also upon the entire world by removing Himself from their midst. No longer can anyone either in the churches or in the world be eternally saved, and this is all due to the rider of the green horse, namely Christ and the elect, who were given power over all the churches and even the whole world to bring judgment against them by spiritual famine.   

Yet, we are told that not only was the rider on the green horse (Christ and the elect) given power over the whole earth to kill with sword and famine, but also with death. The way they killed with death was through the proclamation of the Word of God. Up until Judgment Day began on May 21, 2011, those who believed in the Word of God were eternally saved, but those who rejected the Word were condemned to eternal death to be manifest on the Last Day. Then, after Judgment Day began on May 21, 2011, Christ removed Himself from the midst of the entire world so that none could any longer become eternally saved, and the elect have been declaring this ever since. The result has been guaranteed death to all those who did not become eternally saved in Christ by May 21, 2011, which death will be revealed on the Last Day when they are all annihilated forever in the Lake of fire along with Satan and all his demons.  

Yet, we are not only told that the rider on the green horse (Christ and the elect) were given power over the entire earth to kill with the sword, famine, and death, but also with the beasts of the earth. The beasts of the earth, or we could translate it, the wild beasts of the earth, refer to all the peoples of the earth that have not been tamed by the Word of God so that they are called wild beasts of the earth, and they are spiritually unsaved and under the power of Satan who is the ultimate beast.  

But, how did the rider on the green horse (Christ and the elect) who were given power to bring judgment upon the whole earth use these beasts, the unsaved people of the world, to kill with? Well, certainly one way Christ used them was to spiritually kill the churches by May 21, 1988 as judgment against them due to all their High Places or false teachings. Yes, Christ used the wild beasts of false prophets and false believers to rise up and spiritually kill (silence) the elect in all the churches, and they completely took over the churches with false teachings and gospels so that by September 7 of 1994, the abomination of desolation, the Antichrist, the counterfeit Christ, Satan, had completely taken his seat of rulership in all the local churches and congregations without them even knowing it so that, now, those who go to church are worshipping the man of sin, the antichrist, the counterfeit Christ, Satan as the Holy Spirit had removed Himself from all the churches long ago during the Great Tribulation that began on May 21, 1988, which left the door wide open to Satan's assault.   

Even now, ever since Judgment Day began on May 21, 2011, the rider on the green horse (Christ) has been using the wild beasts of the earth such as false prophets to continue to lead all the churches astray. These false prophets say that the churches have not come under the wrath of God, and there is still eternal salvation possible, for the Church Age continues as it always has ever since the 1st century AD. Indeed, they know not that they are blind, miserable and naked, for the Church Age ended on May 21, 1988, and the wrath of God has come upon them to the full, and there is no longer any possibility of eternal salvation. How deep is that darkness! 


Revelation 6:9
:   

9 And 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 . . .  

In this verse, we first read, And when He had opened the fifth seal. The He who had opened the fifth seal was, of course, the lamb that was slain, namely Our Lord Jesus Christ. And, in that He opened the 5th seal means that He opened the 5th seal to the book of God's salvation plan, which is symbolic of Him actually bringing about the 5th aspect to God's salvation plan in history. So, it is Christ Himself who has been in control of not only bringing the first four aspects to God's salvation plan in history, but also the 5th aspect of which the apostle John is about to reveal in his vision. 

Now, in his vision, the apostle John says, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the Word of God, and for the testimony which they held. These souls that John saw refers to the souls or spirits of all those who were killed because they stood for what the Word of God teaches. That is, because they stood for Christ and what He teaches, they were murdered. This not only refers to all those who were physically martyred for Jesus Christ throughout history, but it refers to every single one of God's elect because they had all been murdered for Jesus Christ. Remember what Christ taught? He said,   

1Jo 3:15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him .  

And, also, Christ taught in John 15:19,  

Joh 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you .  

That is, the world hates all of Christ's chosen. And, since we learned that whosoever hates his brother is a murderer, we are being taught that the whole world is a murderer of all God's elect because they hate them in their hearts. Thus, in a real sense, all of God's elect have been murdered throughout history in the hearts of the unsaved for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held, and, so, the souls that John saw under the altar were the spirits of all the elect who had passed on from this life into heaven.   

But, why are they described as being under the altar? Does this mean that all the spirits of the elect in heaven are jammed under a physical altar? Of course not! The altar symbolizes the bloody sacrifice of Christ as the altar was closely associated with the bloody animal sacrifices that were placed on it, which, in turn, typified the bloody sacrifice of Christ. Thus, the souls of the elect in heaven being under the altar does not mean that they are under a physical altar, but it symbolizes that they are under the bloody sacrifice of Christ - their sins have been cleansed by the blood of the Lamb.  


Revelation 6:10
:   

10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth ?  

Here, we have a picture of all the elect under the altar (all who have had their sins paid for by the sacrifice of Christ) crying out for justice. They had all been slain for their adherence to the Word of God, the truth, and, now, they want those who had killed them to get what they deserve for having had murdered them. Many of the elect in heaven had been physically murdered while on earth, but all the elect in heaven had been spiritually murdered (looked down upon, ignored, treated badly, cast out, separated from, considered false prophets, or the like); that is, they had all been silenced in some way by the unsaved when they were on earth. And, now, all these elect in heaven who had experienced being slain while on earth cried with a loud voice (it was a loud voice because there were many of them, and each one of them had been deeply hurt and longed for vengeance). So, they each cried out with a loud voice to the Lord, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth. That is, how much longer will it be before you, the Lord, bring judgment upon the world, and cast all the unsaved into the Lake of Fire where they will die and remain dead for all eternity, for they had shed our blood, and so they deserve to have their blood shed. As the scripture declared,

Ge 9:6 Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man .  

But, does this scripture mean that we who are still on this earth should rise and take vengeance ourselves upon unsaved? Absolutely not! For we read in Romans 12, 

Ro 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord

And, we know that the vengeance of the Lord will be complete on the Last day when all the unsaved both in the graves and without will be brought forth before the Lord and His elect to be annihilated forever, and the elect will, indeed, be satisfied on that day, amen. 


Revelation 6:11
:  

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

In this verse, we are first told that all the elect under the altar in heaven - that is, covered by the sacrifice of Christ for their sins - were given white robes. These robes represent the coverings for their nakedness, and their nakedness represents their sins. Thus, the robes are that which covers their sins. Furthermore, in that these robes are white means that they are holy or righteous. So, in that these are white robes signifies that they are holy or righteous coverings for sins. And, since, spiritually, the covering for sin is the Lord Jesus Christ Himself who paid the price for the sins of His elect on the cross, the white robes represent the holy or righteous Christ Himself so that we could say that the robes represent the holiness or righteousness of Christ. Thus, when we are told that the elect in heaven were given white robes, it means that the holiness or righteousness of Christ was given to them, which tells us that the elect in heaven have been made holy and righteous, without sin, like Christ. 

But, now, we read, and it was said unto them [unto the elect in heaven], that they should rest yet for a little season. This term, little season, is also found in Revelation 20 where we read, 

Re 20: 2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years ,
3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season .     

Here, we learn that the little season is that small time period after Satan is bound for a thousand years when Satan is loosed from the bottomless pit. Yet, when is Satan bound for a thousand years? First, we must realize that the thousand years is symbolic of the completeness of years for which Satan is bound (see Bible Number 1,000 ), and, so, it does not refer to a literal 1000 years, but the completeness of however many years it may be. Next, we must search the Bible as to when Satan was bound, and when we do this, we are given several clues. For instance, when Jesus carried out His ministry on earth, He said,   

Mt 12: 28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you .
29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house

And, again, Jesus said,   

Mr 3:27 No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house .  

In these two verses, Jesus taught that He had to first bind the strong man (Satan) before He could plunder his house. And, since Jesus did begin to plunder Satan's house by casting out demons, we can know that Satan was being bound during Jesus's ministry on earth. Further support for that Satan was being bound during Christ's ministry when He was on earth comes from what we read in Luke 10,  

Lu 10:18 And he [Jesus] said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven .   

You see, the kingdom of Satan began to be plundered by Christ when He was on earth, and the reason was because Satan was being bound until, finally, he was completely bound at the cross, which is why we see that Satan is no longer able to keep the gospel from going into whole world after the cross, and we see thousands upon thousands being saved shortly after Pentecost in 33 AD (Acts 2:41; 4:4) while before that time very few were ever saved. It was because Satan was bound at the cross, which made it now possible for the gospel to go forth and conquer as evidenced by many people being saved all over the world.  

So, when was Satan bound? He was bound at the cross. This means that the thousand years in which Satan was bound began in 33 AD when Jesus rose from the dead, and it continued for the completeness of years, which, according to the Biblical Calendar , we now know to have been 1955 years until May 21, 1988 when the Church Age ended, and Satan was loosed to be used by God to bring Great Tribulation upon all the churches as judgment against them for their having held to all the various false teachings and false Christs. We read of this in Revelation 11 where we read,

7 And when they [the churches symbolized by the 2 olive trees and the 2 candlesticks in verse 4] shall have finished their testimony [when the Church Age was over], the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them

That is, when the Church Age was over on May 21, 1988, Satan, the beast, was loosed from the bottomless pit, and He was permitted to make war against all the churches to overcome the elect in the churches and kill them. Satan did not, for the most part, physically kill the elect, but he spiritually killed the elect in all the churches by silencing them and the true gospel. Indeed, Satan was seated to rule in all the churches so that they would be overrun by many false gospels and teachings, and his false prophets and ministers did arise to teach things so close to the truth that it could deceive Christ's elect if that were possible. As we read about this time in Matthew 24,  

Mt 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect .    

And, again, in Mark 13,  

Mr 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect .  

But, now, returning to our verse in Revelation 6, we read, 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. We now know that the little season in which the elect in heaven were to rest refers to the Great Tribulation wherein all the churches were given over to Satan as judgment against them from May 21, 1988 to when Judgment Day began on May 21, 2011. Thus, the thousand years in which Satan was bound began at the cross and ended when the Church Age ended on May 21, 1988. Then Satan was loosed for a little season to bring judgment against all the churches from May 21, 1988 to when Judgment Day began on May 21, 2011. Just before the Great Tribulation (the little season) began, the apostle John in his vision heard it said to the elect in heaven that they should rest yet for a little season; that is, they should rest in their salvation in Christ during the Great Tribulation (the little season) of judgment which came upon all the churches.  

Thus, the elect who were in heaven at the end of the Church Age on May 21, 1988, cried out to the lord, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth, and the Lord told them that they should rest a little season while judgment is brought upon all the churches from May 21, 1988 to May 21, 2011 until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. And, how were their fellow servants and their brethren killed during the little season of judgment? Well, for the most part they were spiritually killed (silenced) in all the churches until Judgment Day began on May 21, 2011 when judgment not only continued against all the churches, but also came upon the entire world. Indeed, not only could no one any longer be saved in all the churches ever since May 21, 1988, but neither could anyone any longer be saved in the world ever since May 21, 2011. The Day of Yahweh's wrath had come!  


SUMMARY & CONCLUSION  

In this study of Revelation 6:7-11, we looked at the opening of the 4th and 5th seals. When the 4th seal was opened we saw that the pale horse was better translated as green horse, and we learned that its rider was Christ and His body, the elect, and they had the name of death, and hell followed them because they proclaimed the Word of God to the whole world, which brought death and hell to all those who did not believe. They also proclaimed death and hell to all the churches during the Great Tribulation from May 21, 1988 to May 21, 2011, and they now are not only proclaiming hell and death to all the churches, but also to the entire world ever since Judgment Day began on May 21, 2011. Thus, the rider on the pale horse is a picture of Christ and the elect bringing death and hell to the entire world and all the churches.  

But, then, when the 5th seal was opened, we saw the souls of the elect in heaven who had been slain for having stood firm upon the truths of the Word of God. This included not only the elect who had been physically slain on earth, but also all the other elect who had passed on from this earth because they had all been spiritually slain through the hatred of the world for them. Remember, Christ had taught that if you have hatred toward another, you have already murdered them in your heart. And, since the world hated all the elect, all the elect in heaven had been murdered or slain by the world when they were on earth. 

But, now, we saw all the elect in heaven who had been slain crying out to the Lord for vengeance upon all those who had murdered them, and the Lord said that they should rest for a little season, which, we learned, was the little season of the Great Tribulation of judgment against all the churches from May 21, 1988 to May 21, 2011. It was during this little season when the rest of the elect would be spiritually slain (silenced) in all the churches, and, after that, the Lord would begin His judgment against the whole world in answer to the cries of the elect who had been slain, which He did on May 21, 2011 with the removal of any possibility for any of them ever being eternally saved. Yes, the vengeance of the Lord has surely come, and it will be completed on the Last Day of Judgment Day when the whole world that slew the elect will be cast into the Lake of Fire to be burned up and never live again, amen.  


Now, with that, may the LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace .
