Is our suffering part of God’s Plan? Revelation 6:1-8

The four horsemen have influence in the following 4 area’s;

  1. War – 200 million people have died from war related causes in the last 100 years… 2 million people p/year on average…
  2. Famine – 21,000 people die every day from famine related causes… that’s almost 8 million people every year…
  3. Diseases – millions of people die each year from diseases…
  4. Death – If you don’t die from the first 3 then you’ll have another way (accident, wild animals, murder, etc) no escape..

55 million people die each year from these 4 threats…

These four horsemen have always been in the world; Zechariah 1:8-17, Zechariah 6:1-8

Horses were weapons of war & power, but God doesn’t need a horse to reveal His power and authority; Zechariah 9:9-10

The four horsemen 4 riders are spiritual influences in the world, not literal people. They are spirits…

How is the term “spirit” translated in scripture?

  1. Breath –
  2. Strength or Vitality –
  3. Creativity –
  4. Feelings – rejoicing
  5. Relationship – spiritual connection
  6. Worship -spiritual worship
  7. Wind – the most common usage of spirit in the Bible is for wind. It is used almost a full 1/3 of the time as wind… In Acts chapter 2 the Spirit of God came upon the disciples like the sound of a mighty rushing wind.

Jesus compares being born of the spirit to the wind; John 3:7-8

Jesus explains what it is to have a spiritual view of the world; Matthew 16:1-28

  • Hebrews 11:1… spiritual faith…
  • -23"]… spiritual influence
  • -28"]… resisting spiritual influences

The four threats to our focus on the Kingdom of Christ;

  1. White horse and rider with a bow and a crown;
  2. Red horse and rider with a long sword;
  3. Black horse and rider with a scale;
  4. Pale or spotted horse and with death & hell;

There is a Christ view of the world and there is a Secular view of the world, and these are opposed to each other…

We are at war with spiritual forces influencing us to focus on the physical world and ignore the spiritual world;

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” Sun Tzu – The Art of War

I promise you that if you stay focused on Christ you have nothing to fear from the prophecies in Revelation…
