7 year TRIBULATION PERIOD
return of Christ
(Rev. 19:11; Acts 1:11; John 14:3)
1000 year millienium reign of Christ on earth (Rev.20:6) > > > >
[ Rev.6:1 Rev.13:1 Rev.20:3 ]
the 5 HORSEMEN OF REVELATION
The "rider on a white horse" (Rev.6:2) symbolizes the appearance of antichrist on the world's stage in the End Times. The 7 year Tribulation is then triggered at the signing of the MIdeast Peace agreement.
The "rider on the red horse" (Rev.6:4) symbolizes
bloodshed worldwide; this will occur right inside the
7 year Tribulation; At this time, "peace will be taken from the earth & that men should slay one another". "A great sword was given" to this red rider. War, murder & anarchy in the streets will result in great bloodshed worldwide.
The "rider on the black horse" (Rev.6:5) is carry- ing a "pair of scales in his hand." This represents that the worldwide economic condition just inside the 7 year Tribulation will be in a disasterous state. Prices will rise so high that most of the world will not be able to afford even the basic necessities of life, like bread. A "quart of wheat" will cost a day's wage (a "denarius") at that time.
The "rider on the ashen (grey) horse" is death. (Rev. 6:8). "And Hades (a 5th horse) was follow- ing with him." "And authority was given to them (4th & 5th horsemen together) over a 1/4th of the
earth to kill with the sword, famine, disease & the wild beasts of the earth." Just after the start of the 7 year Tribulation, over 1.5 billion people will
die, by war, murder, starvation, deathly disease & by the animals running 'wild' on earth with a killer-instinct. Death & Hell (these 4th & 5th riders) are a direct result of the horrors brought by the 2nd & 3rd riders.
