Today the middle east is spiraling out of control and many world leaders are seeking answers to this rising threat of radical Islam, or Jihad. The truth be told, no world leader is prepared for what is arising within the middle east, nor are many willing to accept the truth, the Biblical truth. I believe the Bible gives us a clear, concise and absolute truth as to what is arising within the middle east, the latter / end day Islamic Caliphate, or the 8th world empire, the one world leader, the Anti-Christ.
Please, before you cast this posting to the side as non-sense allow me to present my thoughts. The book or Revelation chapter 6 speaks of 4 horsemen, the apocalyptic end time messengers of famine, pestilence, pain and death. The focus over the past hundred years from the pulpit was on the riders, the ones atop the horses, not the actual horses. I want to examine the horses, or to be exact, the colors of the horses.
The White horse, verse two, enters the world scene, we read:
I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow, and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.
The Red horse, verse four, enters the world scene, we read:
And another, a red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another; and a great sword was to given to him.
The Black horse, verse five, enters the world scene, we read;
When He broke the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, “Come”. I looked, and behold, a black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.
The Green horse, verse eight, enters the world scene, we read;
I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.
The 6th chapter of Revelation begins with the entrance of the White horse and moves through the chapter revealing three additional horses all accompanied by riders, of which many pastors focus upon. I want to focus on the horses and their color, and point out it’s not the power of the rider but of the horse. The author of Revelation (John) may not be concerned with the rider, but, with the colors. I believe he makes it clear, it does not matter who sits upon the horse, it matters what color the horse is. If the color of the horse was not his focal point why would he mention a color? Would the color matter to the reader if the rider was important? I assert NO.
I believe this is why John specifically identifies the color of the horse because there will be several riders upon each horse and famine, pestilence, pain and death will follow. The riders will be killed, another will sit upon the horse, embarking on the mission of the horse, or the color of the horse. I believe the color is important, follow my thought as we look upon the middle east over the past 12 years, primarily since 9-11.
The White Horse represents Islam, or the Caliphate, it is not a color of surrender, but of conquest according to Islamic teaching. So, the call for an Islamic Caliphate or Islamic State is put forth to the world. I believe 9-11 was all about the Islamic Jihad making their presence known to the world.
The Red Horse represents Peace, which is part of Islam’s call, yet, according to Islam, peace can only be obtained when Islam rules the world, or the world is ruled under the Sharia. This is how deceptive they are when speaking with the press. They claim they want peace, yet, according to Islamic doctrine, peace can only be obtained once Islam rules the world.
The Black Horse represents Wealth, this is also part of Islam’s teaching, destroying the wealth of it’s enemies, exhausting government resources in attempting to defend against Islam’s world domination. The governments of the world are spending billions attempting to defend against Jihad. The American government has spent billions of tax-payer dollars attempting to defend against the threat since 9-11.
The Green Horse represents Death, this is also part of Islam’s teaching, bringing death upon those who oppose conversion. The prophet Mohammad converted by sword, not by peace. In studying the Bible it is clear: The Bible begins with a hardline teaching, observance of the law, discipline dealt to those who disobeyed the law, yet, the Bible ends (gospel) with Christ demanding, peace, love, joy and tolerance. Mohammed’s teachings are absolutely opposite, he teaches peace, grace and conversion early, but, ends by teaching brutality, dismemberment and death for ALL who do not covert. He ends with death by sword for the infidel.
I believe we may have focused on the riders far too long, those within the faith and or belief of the Bible and even those skeptical of the Biblical future events, the focus is always on one individual, the rider, not the movement. I believe we must focus on the movement, the horse. The rider may change over time, as many Islamic leaders come and go, but the movement continues. I have personally never seen a green horse, nor a red horse, in absolute color, white and black are common. Why does John mention the colors? I believe he wants us to focus / watch and give attention to the four different colors. Here is a breakdown of what each color represents today throughout the middle east / world.
White Horse: The Caliphate or Islamic State
Red Horse: The Hashemite Dynasty – Jordanian region Hamas-Hezbollah
Black Flag: The Islamic State- Isis, Al Qaeda
Green Flag: The Flag of Mohammed- Sunni-Muslim Brotherhood
The colors White, Red, Black and Green are all colors of Islamic Jihad groups operating within the Middle East. Watch the flags as they intertwine gaining more and more power as borders collapse and alliances are made. The border of Syria and Iraq is controlled by ISIS today, this will be an emerging trend as the borders of Pakistan, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Turkey etc. begin to collapse control will move in favor of the groups supporting Jihad (Terrorist Groups) and away from those supporting a government.
In closing; The ultimate goal of radical Islam is to dominate the world, destroy Israel, and Jerusalem. The movement wants to go through Palestine, which is represented by a multi-colored Flag, White, Red, Black and Green.
Trouble is coming, watch the horses (flags), not the riders..
