The Riders of the Apocalypse: A Look at the "White Rider"

in apocalypse •  3 months ago

Almost all Christians know of renowned The Riders of the Apocalypse also known as the 4 Horsemen, but do you know whom the white rider is actually supposed to represent? After looking at many of the modern and olden portrays of these figures, it has led me to believe that there are MANY who don't actually know the true identity of the white horsemen...

Let's observe some scripture.

Revelation 6:1-2

The Seals

"And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. 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."

Some of the key terms here being that he wields a bow, he comes with a crown, and he has set out to conquer. And we know from Matthew 10:34...

"Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword."

Those who study the Bible should know to be vigilant watchmen on the wall, and that the 4 Horsemen are meant to ride during the end times.

But is the "White Rider" 'evil' ? Take a look at some of the rather morbid, villainous and downright demonic looking depictions of "The White Rider" that have been floating around on the internet...

Pretty dark material here. Do any of those White Riders look Christ-like to you? Modern day media sure has twisted his depiction quite a bit among thousands of references in television shows, movies, pictures & paintings, and much more. It sounds like more deceit from Satan, yet another low blow, in order to make Christ look evil... But thankfully, Revelation 19:11 explains it a bit better.

Revelation 19:11

"I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war."

Yes, he is RIGHTEOUS and TRUE. That White Rider... is none other than our Lord, our Christ.... RAYEL!

Yes, the 4 Horsemen have rode and continue to ride to this very day. The evidence has been provided for those that care to seek it. The prophecies have been fulfilled.

I come across SOOO much confusion between people misunderstanding these references. Thanks for shining some light.

Here is another question. Most so called Christians also do not know what his role is in heaven. He is in charge of the heavenly kingdom or government. His ride on the white horse leads to Armageddon. In that war ALL EARTHLY GOVERNMENTS will be destroyed (Dan 2:44 Nebuchadnezzar's dream). The earthly governments are in opposition to his heavenly reign. So, tell me why on earth does anyone who calls themselves Christians support their National Government that not only will be destroyed by Jesus but is also under the control of the God of this world, Satan? 2 Cor 4:4, 1 John 5:19 etc. Christians should be politically neutral but they are not


It is a good question, one we still ask ourselves all the time.


Hey @jetblake

Totally agree, no matter what King Yeshua Ben Yosef preached, it was surely a form of harmonious and legitimate hierarchy where those above lived to serve those below. As the Angels in Heaven live to serve and assist in any way possible us mortals below.
This is the way that God's Love works.

He makes himself small and invisible so that we can feel big and be seen.
He stays quiet so that we can hear ourselves think.
He lets us choose and watches in pain and silence when we make the wrong choice and harm ourselves or others...

This is the nature of our most benevolent and benign supreme creator.

Nothing bad that we experience is anybody's fault but our own! And yet we are offered everyday the opportunity to heal, fix, grow, learn, improve, transcend

The governments today are ruled by Ahriman or Satan as he has come to be known.

The Sun or Aten or All (or even Allah) still remains, always radiating light unto our lives.

If we could just stop supporting evil and stop self-harming and harming others, we will heal very quickly.

I think the time of retribution is coming and those who are Hell-bent or destroying themselves will destroy themselves, while those who shall remain humble and woke in the Eyes of God will ascend to new levels previously only dreamt of.

Great comment, I rate that your thinking

PS: I just wrote an article along this line about the true identity of Abraham.
Please head to my Steemit blog and take a look at:

The True Story of Religion – The Biblical Patriarchs, Hyksos Pharaoh of Lower Egypt.

It's a good article lol and I hope guys like ya'll would like to get involved in the comments section!

Peace and love ya'll!

Christians still do not fully understand Revelation 19:12-13 that speaks about Christ's NEW NAME that he will have when he returns.

This is a great clarification! Thank you, brother!

I wonder who are the other 3 men then?

The confusion has been resolved... Thanks @apocalypse612

So much has been twisted over the centuries, it's no wonder everyone is confusing someone powerful as someone evil.

Fantastic video. Now it is time to get him on his throne.
