Revelation 6:2

King James Version (KJV)

22 REASONS WHY STARTING WORLD WAR 111 IN THE MIDDLE EAST IS A REALLY BAD IDEA CLICK TO READ HUGS ARM YOURSELF WITH TRUTH AND KNOWLEDGE

2 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.
A victorious King rode a white horse in the victory or triumphal parade. Jesus rode a donkey, a peaceful symbol; here a horse is for war and power.

The Rider on the White Horse

Jesus is pictured as the rider on the white horse. A white horse is a king’s horse. Jesus comes back a second time as He said He would.

A victorious King rode a white horse in the victory or triumphal parade.
Jesus rode a donkey, a peaceful symbol, before his death on a cross, but here He rides a horse which is a symbol for war and power.

For starters, the white horseman carries a bow, a weapon of war. Strangely, John makes no mention of arrows or a quiver, although we may infer the former, since a bow is nearly worthless without arrows. (Then again, the lack of arrows may suggest war fought, not with blood-letting weapons, but with words or ideas; see Psalm 11:2; 64:2-4; Jeremiah 9:8; Ephesians 6:16.) A bow is a purely offensive weapon, even more so than a sword, and is highly effective from long range (for example, archers killed Uriah the Hittite and kings Ahab of Israel and Josiah of Judah). Thus, the foremost idea behind this biblical symbol is powerful, penetrating, deadly accuracy with an intimation of distance.

A sidelight of the bow’s imagery is the frequency of its use as a symbol of God’s judgment. Job complains, “His archers surround me. He pierces my heart and does not pity; He pours out my gall on the ground. He breaks me with wound upon wound” (Job 16:13-14; see also Lamentations 2:4; 3:12-13; Jeremiah 50:9, 14, 29; 51:3).

The white horseman’s bow, then, represents an effective instrument of God’s judgment on the world for rebellion against Him. Unlike the sword that Christ wields (Revelation 19:15), the bow’s long range hints at God being somewhat removed in His judgment, yet it is just as devastating in its effectiveness at meting out justice. In addition, whereas the sword symbolizes the Word of God (Ephesians 6:17; Hebrews 4:12)—His truth—the bow suggests a counterfeit “truth” or a false gospel. As II Thessalonians 2:11-12 says, “God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

The rider of the white horse is given a crown to wear, after which he goes “out conquering and to conquer.” These two symbols are related both in their proximity in the verse and in their meanings. First, the word order suggests that being endowed with a crown allows or authorizes the horseman to go to war. Who gives him this crown? Notice Romans 13:1: “For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.” An angel tells Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel 4:17, “The Most High rules in the kingdom of men, gives it to whomever He will, and sets over it the lowest of men.” God is sovereign over all earthly authority, and it is from Him that this horseman receives his crown and purpose.

Second, crowns generally represent some state of honor or blessing for the wearer. We normally associate crowns with royalty, which in Classical Greek is represented by the word diadema, which has come down to us as “diadem.” The word in Revelation 6:2, however, is stéfanos, a circlet, wreath, or garland, oftentimes made of leaves and twigs but sometimes of precious metals. It was awarded as a prize of victory or triumph, as a symbol of honor or authority, as a badge of civic worth or military valor, or as a sign of nuptial joy or festal gladness. Due to the verse’s heavy martial emphasis, it is likely that the horseman’s crown signifies triumph, authority, or military valor.

Third, this horseman goes “out conquering and to conquer,” a fairly literal rendering of the Greek. To us, this phraseology sounds strange, but it is merely expressing two different tenses of the same verb (nikao, “conquer,” “subdue,” “overcome,” “prevail,” “get the victory”): the present participle and the aorist subjunctive. In other words, John is telling us that the horseman begins and continues to conquer, and he will certainly conquer or will ultimately conquer (see A.T. Robertson’s Word Pictures in the New Testament on this verse). The implication is that his entire purpose is to conquer, to dominate, to subjugate the peoples of the earth.

Overall, the white horse and its rider are vivid representations of a powerful, aggressive, victorious force running unrestrained over mankind. Like a knight in armor or a soldier in full dress uniform, the first horseman appears to the eye as glorious and noble, but its intent is to kill, destroy, and subdue its enemies. Its white façade is deceptive, concealing a deadly, unholy purpose.

These interpretations of the symbols may seem highly speculative and arbitrary until we unlock their mystery with the key supplied by Jesus Christ Himself in the Olivet Prophecy. In a series of four verses, He decodes the meanings of the Four Horsemen. Of the white horseman, He says: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, I am the Christ, and will deceive many” (Matthew 24:4-5; see Mark 13:5-6; Luke 21:8). The white horse and its rider represent religious deception.

Who are the white horses? They are not earthly horses but angelic creatures that are from heaven. In the same manner angels have animal like features (Cherubim), there are an array of creatures that dwell in heaven. Cherubs have wings;
“And He rode upon a cherub, and flew; he flew upon the wings of the wind” (Ps 18:10, also 2 Sam. 22:11)
So the first rider on the white horse conquers at the beginning of the tribulation as a judgment , he is not Jesus. But Jesus comes back on a white horse to end the Tribulation by judging the evil ones that have taken control of the earth. He will then separate the sheep from the goats in the coming days (Mt.25) and set up his kingdom with the saints.

When Jesus returns to the earth at His Second Coming, to end the Tribulation period, He will bring others with

Him from Heaven that will sit on white horses:

Rev. 19:4, there is an army that follows Him riding on white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. In v.8 we are told the fine linen is the righteousness of the saints. The saints are returning with Christ, and He is to wage war on the Antichrist, and his armies. This is reffered to in 2 Thess.2:8: “then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming

The Scripture indicates that Jesus will return on a white horse, but we know this rider cannot be Jesus because he is the first of four riders that are sent as a judgment at the beginning of the tribulation. Jesus comes back to end the tribulation by destroying all the wicked ones gathered in Israel,– but to judge the people of the earth, separate the sheep from the goats and set things right.

Israel Successfully Tests Missile Defense System as Tensions Grow
According to the Israeli Defense Ministry, the US and Israel successfully tested Israel’s Arrow III long-range missile defense system (Iron Dome and Patriot are the short- and medium-range missile defenses) by shooting down a missile over the Mediterranean Sea this week. The US Navy would not confirm the test but said the US did not launch any missiles. It is believed that the “attack” missile was fired from an Israeli jet over the sea, and then intercepted by a missile from an Israeli air base
.

The test highlighted Israel’s determination not to sit back and allow any of the threatened attacks—whether from Gaza, Lebanon, Syria or Iran—to take place without a response. The nation of Israel is on high alert and people are making urgent preparations for war. The delay in US military action for, apparently, at least another week only changes the timing, but not the nature of the threat.It is unclear how Congress will react to the president’s request for authority to strike at Syria. The British Parliament last week turned down a similar request from Prime Minister David Cameron (the first time that body had refused such a request since 1782 during the American Revolution). And it is unclear whether Mr. Obama would consider such a rejection binding if it did occur. Aides told various interviewers over the weekend that the president might give the order to attack Syria regardless of the outcome of the congressional vote.Both Iran and Syria have threatened to retaliate against Israel in the event of such an attack. This is exactly what happened during the first Gulf War as Saddam Hussein fired Scud missiles into Israel. The Jewish People lack many of the supplies and necessities for surviving such attacks, particularly if chemical and/or biological weapons are used. Our prayers and support are urgently needed at this critical moment in history.

Syria will not change its position “even if there is World War III,” its deputy foreign minister reportedly said Wednesday – even as activists claimed that another prominent member of the Assad regime had defected.

Faisal Muqdad insisted Syria’s government would counter any military action aimed at punishing the regime for the suspected use of chemical weapons, according to an interview with AFP cited by regional news outlet Al-Arabiya.

“The Syrian government will not change position even if there is World War III. No Syrian can sacrifice the independence of his country,” he reportedly told AFP.

“Syria has taken every measure to retaliate against…an aggression,” he added.

His comments came as Reuters reported that former Syrian defense minister General Ali Habib, a prominent member of President Bashar Assad’s Alawite sect, had defected and was now in neighboring Turkey.

However, Syrian state television denied the report and said Habib was still at his home in the country.

“Ali Habib has managed to escape from the grip of the regime and he is now in Turkey,” Kamal al-Labwani, a senior member of the opposition Syrian National Coalition told Reuters from Paris.

“I was told this by a Western diplomatic official,” Reuters quoted Labwani as saying.

If Habib’s defection is confirmed, it would be the highest ranking figure from the Alawite minority to break with Assad since the uprising against him began in 2011.

Who is the rider on the “White Horse” in the Book of Revelation?

In ancient times a white horse was used by a conquering king who would ride into a city conquered.

The Scripture indicates that Jesus will return on a white horse, but we know this rider cannot be Jesus because he is the first of four riders that are sent as a judgment at the beginning of the tribulation. Jesus comes back to end the tribulation by destroying all the wicked ones gathered in Israel,– but to judge the people of the earth, separate the sheep from the goats and set things right.

Rev 6:1-2: “Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, “Come and see.” And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.”

Notice it is the lamb that opens the seals, the first rider is sent is to conquer. The next riders, red horse kills; the third rider on a black horse has a scale, he determines the price of basic food and luxuries. The fourth rider is a pale horse, who is Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.” The judgements are incremental and are sent from the lamb but are not involving the lamb himself.

When Jesus returns to the earth at His Second Coming, to end the Tribulation period, He will bring others with

Him from Heaven that will sit on white horses:

Rev. 19:4, there is an army that follows Him riding on white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. In v.8 we are told the fine linen is the righteousness of the saints. The saints are returning with Christ, and He is to wage war on the Antichrist, and his armies. This is reffered to in 2 Thess.2:8: “then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.”

VV.11-16 “Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.”

This is describing Armageddon, when Jesus comes back and puts away evil.

Who are the white horses? They are not earthly horses but angelic creatures that are from heaven. In the same manner angels have animal like features (Cherubim), there are an array of creatures that dwell in heaven. Cherubs have wings;

“And He rode upon a cherub, and flew; he flew upon the wings of the wind” (Ps 18:10, also 2 Sam. 22:11)

So the first rider on the white horse conquers at the beginning of the tribulation as a judgment , he is not Jesus. But Jesus comes back on a white horse to end the Tribulation by judging the evil ones that have taken control of the earth. He will then separate the sheep from the goats in the coming days (Mt.25) and set up his kingdom with the saints.
