This is my current interpretation of the four horsemen
Revelation 6:2 The first seal opened.
And I saw, and behold a white horse and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
The first rider is Jesus, the Holy Spirit. The bow with no arrows is as to say 'Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of
hosts.' Zechariah 4:6
The crown is his spirit and he went forth conquering and to conquer. White symbolizes Righteousness
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make
And there went out another horse that was red and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one
another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
Red symbolizes the Blood of the Lamb
The rider is an Angel of the Lord. He was given the power to take peace from the earth. He was also given a great sword.
An angel is a messenger and so the message that took peace from the earth was the gospel of Jesus Christ, the great sword is the word of God.
Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
I saw by night, and behold a man riding upon a red horse and he stood among the myrtle trees that were in the bottom; and behind him were there red
horses, speckled, and white.
And they answered the angel of the LORD that stood among the myrtle trees, and said, We have walked to and fro through the earth, and, behold, all the
earth sitteth still, and is at rest.
And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having
seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse and he that sat on him had a pair
of balances in his hand.
6And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt
not the oil and the wine.
The rider is a Judge who is also Jesus and the pair of balances in his hand are a symbol of judgement and justice. The oil and the wine of the earth
are not hurt, those who actually belong to the body of Christ
and the rest are weighed in the scales and judged according their own works. Black symbolizes Judgement and Justice
Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given
assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
