This is truth matters with Dr. Cheryl David Andres broadcast of truth matters to truth train tensioner study into the sixth chapter of the book of Revelation. In the opening of the first four seals. Cheers, Dr. Cheryl Loomis and the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Hi, I'm Dr. Cheryl Davis and thank you for listening to truth matters.
We are continuing our journey through the book of Revelation and today will get started in chapter 6.
As I've stated before, I Revelation chapter 6 through 19 cover the tribulation here on earth, which is God's judgment on the earth, but just to review the tribulation will last a total of seven years is known as the time of Jacob's trouble. Also the last week of Daniel's 70th week prophecy. The tribulation is seven years long first 3 1/2 years will be relatively peaceful than the last 3 1/2 years is known as the great tribulation where there will be intense suffering.
In chapter 5 we saw where the Lamb took the scroll, mainly in chapter 5, and we see what is going on in heaven. But as we transition to chapter 6 we see the judgment on the earth began in the first eight verses will began reading Revelation chapter 6 verses one through eight. Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder. Come and see. And I looked, and behold a white horse. He who sat on it had about a crown was given to him and he went out conquering and to conquer. When he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, come and see another horse, fiery red went out and it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another and there was given to him a great sword.
When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say come and see. So I looked, and behold a black horse and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand and I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying a quart of wheat for denarius, and 3 quarts of barley for denarius do not harm the oil and the wine. When he opened the fourth seal heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, come and see. So I looked, and behold a pale horse in the name of him who sat on it was death, and Hades followed with and power was given to them over 1/4 of the earth, to kill with a sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.
This section of Scripture is very popular even in the modern day world. The section is known as the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, but where else really in our society have you heard this title. When I presented this to my church. A lot of them said NASA there is a group who it went up the space shuttle of NASA known as the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. If you watch WWE in wrestling. There's a group of men known as the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and also this is a song by Metallica.
I think even what what I'm trying to say is that even the modern society knows the significance of the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and there's a mystery surrounding that said, I think a lot of people are drawn to this name but just to get into some housekeeping before we get into the four horses.
The scroll contains seven seals. And as we've said before, and in chapter 5. The scroll is the title deed to the earth. This is the process in which judgment is going to occur said that Jesus will take control and receive his inheritance on the earth. You know later in Revelation, it says the kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our God. This is the endpoint of opening all the seals of the title deed to the earth. The seventh seal contains seven trumpets. The seventh trumpet contains seven bowls. These are all judgments that will fall upon the earth.
The first four seals are for horses that are really carrying various forms of judgment. In modern times.
Horses are viewed for agriculture and transportation is very different in the ancient biblical world and the setting in which Revelation was written today we use them as a tool but we find in the ancient world had really different. We find that in Job the image of the horse would bring to mind warfare and battle to the ancient reader. Please join us for our next truth matters with Dr. Cheryl as the prophecy series through a relationship with the 44 corners of her in the 144,000 is an exciting work. As we were living see some of the first truth matters is a ministry of the truth project
