The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

Revelation 6:1 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.” 2 And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. 3 When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come and see.” 4 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. 5 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. 6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.” 7 When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” 8 So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth. NKJV

TEXT: Revelation 6:1-8

THEME: Judgment is coming

INTRODUCTION: Our world is crying out for someone to come and fix the problems of the nations—the collapsing economies, the wars, the turmoil between nations, and the turmoil within nations that are collapsing from within. There is an old adage that says, “Be careful what you ask for; you may get it!” This is where we are today in the world, in our nation, and in the church. The world is asking for a leader and a government that they won’t want when they get it. We are—I believe—standing at the precipice of a world catastrophe unlike anything the world has ever seen, and many political and religious leaders are dumb dogs. Isaiah captured this thought when he spoke of the leaders of Israel.
