Rev 6:1

As I watched, the Lamb broke the first of the seven seals on the scroll. Then one of the four living beings called out with a voice that sounded like thunder, "Come!"

Rev 6:2

I looked up and saw a white horse. Its rider carried a bow, and a crown was placed on his head. He rode out to win many battles and gain the victory.

The white horse represents Antichrist; (This is not to be confused with the white horse rider of Revelation 19:11-21 the other is Christ in Person!). This one begins a series of terrible events on earth; the "One" in (Revelation 19:11-21) ends these events! He comes on a white horse, imitating Christ and claiming to be Him (Revelation 6:2). "satan" is the one who gives Antichrist a crown! (Daniel 8:24; 11:38-39; 2 Thessalonians 2:8-12; Revelation 13:2,4).  


Rev 6:3

When the Lamb broke the second seal, I heard the second living being say, "Come!"

Rev 6:4

And another horse appeared, a red one. Its rider was given a mighty sword and the authority to remove peace from the earth. And there was war and slaughter everywhere.

The red horse; This is a clear symbol of war. Peace taken from the earth; killing one another; a great sword. It is the natural result of the white horse rider of Revelation 6:2 going forth to conquer. This will be the second tri-continent war. Antichrist comes out of the ten kingdoms that will be formed in the first future tri-continent war of prophecy (Daniel 7:7-8,23-24).

Rev 6:5

When the Lamb broke the third seal, I heard the third living being say, "Come!" And I looked up and saw a black horse, and its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand.

The black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand This is a symbol of famine which is the result of the conquest and wars of the first two seals (Lamentations 4:4-8; Matthew. 24:7).


Rev 6:6

And a voice from among the four living beings said, "A loaf of wheat bread or three loaves of barley for a day's pay. And don't waste  the olive oil and wine."


Rev 6:7

And when the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the fourth living being say, "Come!"

Rev 6:8

And I looked up and saw a horse whose color was pale green like a corpse. And Death was the name of its rider, who was followed around by the Grave. They were given authority over one-fourth of the earth, to kill with the sword and famine and disease and wild animals.

The pale horse: and his name that sat on him was "Death" and "Hell" followed with him Here death and hell are personified. Pale translated " green" "Death" rides the green-pale horse, "Death" and "Hell" here no doubt refers to a great pestilence following the wars and famines of the first three seals; (Matthew 24:6-7; Ezekiel 14:21).

Rev 6:9

And when the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of all who had been martyred for the word of God and for being faithful in their witness.

Rev 6:10

They called loudly to the Lord and said, "O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long will it be before you judge the people who belong to this world for what they have done to us? When will you avenge our blood against these people?"

Rev 6:11

Then a white robe was given to each of them. And they were told to rest a little longer until the full number of their brothers and sisters -their fellow servants of Jesus--had been martyred.

Rev 6:12

I watched as the Lamb broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake. The sun became as dark as black cloth, and the moon became as red as blood.

Rev 6:13

Then the stars of the sky fell to the earth like green figs falling from trees shaken by mighty winds.

Rev 6:14

And the sky was rolled up like a scroll and taken away. And all of the mountains and all of the islands disappeared.

Rev 6:15

Then the kings of the earth, the rulers, the generals, the wealthy people, the people with great power, and every slave and every free person--all hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains.

The sixth seal; destruction in nature 

Rev 6:16

And they cried to the mountains and the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of the one who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb.


Rev 6:17

For the great day of their wrath has come, and who will be able to survive?"

The 4 Horses; the 7 seals; The white horse; The Red Horse; The black horse; The pale horse;
