Discussion for Revelation 6

  • Word
    Satan comes to deceive the world not to destroy the people, meaning flesh, he wants their souls to perish. Satan comes as antichrist, looks like the Lamb that's what antichrist means instead of Christ calling himself Christ, a deception. Satan comes with powers enough to make men believe a lie and he acts like Christ so how will they, the world survive? chasing him, money for souls.They love him.
  • Word
    Elle using Exhaustive Strong's Concordance I see that the crown is a cheap imitation and the bow is toxin and poison. Your saying that in 6 vs 2 that Elijah shows up, not as one of the two witnesses but unannounced as a third witness on his own with this imitation crown and with this bow of poison he will be able to lift off the people who want to fly away. kind of beating gravity.

    God has to send Elijah he who is spoken of in Malachi 4:5-6 to restore the word of God b/c people are butchering the Bible. Revelation 6:2 is not Satan this is Elijah coming before the 'Tribulation" and nothing to do with the "two witnesses" who come after "Trib". Notice "he went forth conquering, and to conquer. If this was evil nobody would survive before the "Rapture".
  • Word 76
    Be prepared first seal when Satan shows up on a white horse and as book of Revelation tells us he looks like the Lamb. So we have a fake coming first and with a fake crown and a toxin bow. Oh they look real enough because he has 2 horns of power, not only that, he speaks like the dragon, why he is the dragon. why would it bring out speaking because he will speak so professional politically, a liar
  • Matt
    The 4 horsemen represent the 4 hidden dynasties: religion (white); politics (red); the economy (black) and education (pale). Satan controls all of these through his children, the Kenites.
  • A disciple
    The Four Horsemen are four evil spirits sent into the world, to deceive the Nations, and to eventually lead them up to battle against Jerusalem and the God of Israel their Saviour and King. They also represent God's judgment being manifested in the making of the world of the ungodly into that which shows their own wickedness and perversion and error: for with all this, they persecute Christians!
