The setting of the Black Horse? Christ opening the seals. The Raptured Church has escaped the Great Tribulation. What are the seals? God’s Judgment upon the earth. What is the Rapture? God’s final Judgment for the Church to escape the promised wrath of an angry God. The Holy Spirit stepped out and the Anti-Christ – the man of sin stepped in. The seals according to the Revelation of Christ are the ministering of God’s wrath upon the Earth and upon humanity. The Black horse; him who sat there-upon, and the balances in his hand… represent a corrupt and tainted world commerce that continuously gets worse and worse through the Great Tribulation.
Revelation 6:5,6…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. And 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.
A one world government has formed under Satan’s Dominion and the Anti-Christ. A regimented Gentile ruled kingdom has come together as the Beast spoken of in John’s Revelation. This one world government rules the military inertia around the globe. This one world government is a huge and magnified comparison to the Roman Empire during the days of Christ. This Beast will rule the political world, the financial world, the economical world, the business world, the religious world, etc. Global economy, commerce, and the business world will all be taken over and darkened under a one world dictator that hates God’s elect, the Jew. Everything such as food, wealth, income, buying, selling, commerce, etc. will be will be under the dominion of the Beast Kingdom which is ruled by Satan and the Anti-Christ. Buying will be dictated by evil. Selling will be dictated by evil. If man does not receive the “mark of the beast” he will not eat. Those who accept Christ will be beheaded.
Revelation 20: 4…and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image , neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ
Revelation 13:17… And that no man might buy or sell , save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
A false Gospel of the Kingdom on Earth will have been preached and established during this seven year Jewish Tribulation. This false Gospel will have informed people that the Kingdom had already come …which in reality is a false proclamation that will mislead multitudes into rejecting the promised King and Kingdom of Christ. The Rapture of the Church has already taken place. Great Tribulation has started and continues to escalate immensely. The world at this time is without mercy, without compassion, without hope, and without God….under the dominion of the man of sin…the Anti-Christ
Matthew 24:14…And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come .
As wars, famine, and military inertia escalate around a globe of godless people…. tribulation like no tribulation in the history of humanity will occur. Bloodshed will pour into the streets and rivers. Water will become polluted from nuclear fallout. Limited food and limited money will cause revolt within society. The Beast Kingdom which is the whole Gentile world will turn against Israel (God’s elect) during these years and all will gather together in force under Satan’s dominion. This will initiate the battle of Armageddon. At this gathering at Armageddon Christ and all His saints (which are the Raptured Saints of God) will step foot on the Earth at the Mount of Olives. At this time Divine Judgment will take place as Christ takes vengeance upon those who rejected Him and His elect Israel during the Great Tribulation. Zechariah 14.
2 Thess. 1: 7-10…when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe
2 Timothy 4:1…I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
The end will be Judgment on Earth – in flaming fire. God will melt the elements with fervent heart. God will physically sanctify the Earth with fire as Christ takes vengeance upon those who rejected Him. The godless world will be judged and cast into everlasting punishment. Satan will thus be bound. The rest of humanity that believes in Christ will be sanctified and have hearts prepared to live with Christ for 1000 years. A resurrection will also occur here.
Revelation 20:4-6… And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image , neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands;and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished . This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
