THe four horsemen. Ok Here's my view point. I do believe your right in assuming these are the same group of horsmen in the OT.
Rev.6: 2And 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
Notice The rider has no arrows for his bow. this probably means he conquers through peace or leverage. He does have a crown that was "given" not
bought or fought for very much like Daniels willful king. I believe that simply because of the crown and the color that this is probably the
anti-christ in a counterfit role. I also think I found his arrows but thats another thread
Rev.6:4And 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.
Now this red horse has a weapon and he once again is "given" power but it is the power to take peace away but it doesn't say he kills, it says they
So once again this has to someone in a position that is able to influence world leaders into commiting to war. Again I think the red horse rider is
Rev6:5And 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.
Wow a pair of balances for a weapon? Again same person but this time he is redistrubeting the wealth with equal or unequal balance's. The prices for
the bread show economic hardship. I mean wow a days wage for a loaf of bread.
Rev.6: 8And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over
the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
The pale or dabbled horse sums the first 3 riders up. and brings their ultimate reason for coming. The power is once again "given" rule over a
fourth of the world by peace or leverage and to kill with the sword of the red horseman. He also uses starvation of the black horseman. I believe the
death part is not from war but executions for not bowing to his will. The Hell that follows with him is a reference to the locust from the bottomless
What I believe you have here is 4 views of the same person. Just as the apostles gave four views of Jesus in the gospels.
