Discussion for Revelation 6

  • A disciple
    The one to whom it was given to go forth conquering is Antichrist, from his first rising up in the person of Nimrod. With these things goes forth like fire to devour the world with violence. All beneath these is man laid in the balance. The thing that is under all the works of the devil to overthrow the conscience of God from among men, is the devil; the prince of death and hell following with him

    Hello, Yesterday I addressed Rev. 6:1-2. The (Lamb) is Christ. (The Seals) The work of the Holy Spirit, see Ephesians 1:13, 4:30. (Thunder) symbolizes the Voice of God. See
    Job 37:4-5,Exodus 19:16-19, IISam 22:14, John 12:28-29. (Beast), In Greek means Zoon. means Living Creatures in Rev.6:1,3,5,7 liken unto a Lion, a Calf, As a face of a Man, as a Flying Eagle. Eze. caught a glimpse.1:4-10

    Hello, There is a time table (33-270c.e) to approximate the first seal history. The White horse (representing the Church) The Bow (the Teachings) The Church went forth to conquer SIN in its manifold categories. At Pentecost 33 C.E.. one can reasonably move forward in time with respect to the opening of the first seal. Pagan Rome was the primary enemy of the Church. Next writing...The Beast?
  • Obbie Beal
    WOW !in this chapter it appears 5 of the seals are open, therefore only one-seal left to be open. WOW !... (Great Earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth... the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

    With the removing of restraint for Antichrist to rise goes hand in hand the taking away of God's hand from before the all the wicked of the earth. This is what they began to do under Nimrod at Babel;and so being made strong by conquest of war, built the city of blasphemy, Nineveh ("I am [the] Son). That which has been begun by God's enemies will God end in their destruction in the Day of Christ.
  • Insight777
    The word Beast represents war, this includes the people and weapons used to create war.
    The 4 beasts, cherubim represent the 4 causes of the final war on earth, end of days.
    3 call out Holy so they represent opposing religions that want to rule the earth. 1 will go into nuclear WW3 over economics only to rule the world. The rider on the pale horse starts WW3 causing the others to fight to survive.
