Prophecy is one of those things we humans find to be truly intriguing. It is interesting that a publication depicts the four horsemen on the cover of The World in 2019. Are the “powers that be” implying the orchestration and full manifestation of events which correspond to the four horsemen to commence just months from now? That is something to think about, isn’t it?
Speaking of the four horsemen, let’s go straight to the source.
I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, “Come!” 2 I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.
3 When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4 Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other. To him was given a large sword.
5 When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. 6 Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “Two pounds of wheat for a day’s wages, and six pounds of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!”
7 When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” 8 I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.
“For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.”
2 Peter 1:21
It is amazing to see that the Word of God is validated day by day as events happen according to what is written. From cover to cover, we can trust that what is written will surely come to pass as we are witnessing it in our time. Jesus forewarned us in Luke 21 of the coming persecution His followers will face. We are getting a foretaste of this with the gradual erosion of our first ammendment rights because of political correctness with every intent to muzzle conservative speech.
Before anyone convinces you to doubt the bible, take the time to really think about who would author such a thought (Genesis 3). The Holy Spirit testifies to the truth and will never bring anyone to doubt God’s Word. If evidence for veracity is demanded, the word is PROPHECY – we are witnessing substantial prophecies undeniably coming to pass by the minute.
These are truly perilous times but even when powerful people are eager to enforce their agenda, we must not forget that God holds the ultimate timeline.
“The LORD frustrates the plans of the nations; He thwarts the devices of the peoples.”
Are you ready for what’s to come?
