Welcome to the second post of this seven post series exploring the identity of the rider of the white horse in Revelation 6:1.
Revelation 6:1 ‘I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, ‘Come!’ I looked and there before me was a white horse. Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.’
Please either listen to the short audio clip above or read the notes below or both at the same time!
We looked yesterday at how most modern commentators are in full agreement that this first rider on a white horse is a false imitation of the depiction of Christ Jesus riding a white steed as described in Revelation 19.
Revelation 19:11 ‘I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse whose rider is called Faithful and True.
Both riders, in Revelation 6:1 and 19:11, ride a white horse but this certainly does not mean they are the same person. There are just too many differences between them, as we will explore.
I am suggesting here that this rider in Revelation 6:1 is actually the deceptive Antichrist.
It is imperative that we can discern between Christ Jesus and the deceptive Antichrist, that we can tell who is who, otherwise we risk being horribly deceived in these last days.
When we read Revelation 6, there would seem to be a clear distinction between Jesus the Lamb and this rider on a white horse.
Jesus the Lamb opens the first seal to reveal a rider on a white horse. He does not open the seal to reveal himself! This would not make much sense!
It certainly makes much more sense that Jesus the Lamb opens the first seal to reveal someone other than himself! Someone such as a false imposter.
I would therefore argue again that there is a clear distinction between Christ the Lamb who opens the seal and this rider on a white horse.
This would lead me to believe that Jesus the Lamb opens the seal to reveal the Antichrist riding on a white horse, a false tyrant posing as a saviour.
Tomorrow we will explore even greater differences between Jesus the Lamb and this Rider on a White Horse. To travel ahead of time and go there now please click HERE.
