Revelation Chapter 6

Revelation 6:1
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.
  • This beast can talk
  • It is a big thing to release these seals, as evidenced by the thunder
  • This is just number one
Revelation 6:2
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.
  • The second horse is a clue to what this horsemen conquered, which was a false peace
  • The world "wants" peace now, especially all of the Middle East (Israel, etc.)
  • The world "wants" peace........on its terms, not God's.
  • This makes it the ideal breeding ground for a world leader to enter the stage......all he needs is to be a peace maker
Isaiah 48:22
There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.

Isaiah 57:21
There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.

Jeremiah 6:14
They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.

Jeremiah 8:11
For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.

Ezekiel 13:16
To wit, the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, saith the Lord GOD.

Revelation 6:3
And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
  • Two beasts which can talk
  • In each instance, something to see awaits them
Revelation 6:4
And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
  • There is no everlasting peace with man, because he cannot heal his evil, warring heart
  • This is a bloody war, with victims on every side, every front ("one another")
  • Even the horse is blood red
Revelation 6:5
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.
  • Three talking beasts
  • The balances denote the sale of goods here, not just justice (next verse)
  • However, unjust scales is an injustice as it is
Proverbs 28:8
He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.

Revelation 6:6
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.
  • This will be a famine, which brings out the desperate sin nature in man
  • With it comes the inner corruption, cruelty, war over food
  • Whose voice is this, since it is not presumably one of the beasts?
  • The oil and the wine may indicate the rich staying and getting richer
Revelation 6:7
And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
  • Each beast can talk, and all say "come and see"
  • In each case it is an invitation to look, directly observe, watch as it unfolds
  • This indicates it will be a spectacle every time
Revelation 6:8
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
  • People killing each other is now upgraded to war, starvation, wild beasts unloosed to kill
  • This is the opposite of the Garden of Eden, where the beasts were peaceful, Pre-Flood
  • Death followed by Hell indicates lost being killed here-the rebellious nature of the natural, unsaved man being taken down, finally, by God Himself
Revelation 6:9
And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
  • Martyrdom will be increasing in the Tribulation, as the world system is against the true believers of Jesus Christ
  • The altar means it is a sacrifice, sweet to God, and the world also will love it, especially the beheadings(it is for their god that they do it)
  • The same was prophesied of the apostles themselves, and came to pass, as has happened through Church history, increasing even now in parts of the world
Revelation 20:4
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.

John 16:2-6
They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.John 16:3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you. But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.

Revelation 6:10
And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
  • This is the cry of all true believers, seeing the corruption, sin, degradation of this world
  • Currently it is the cry of many on North Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and soon here in the U.S.
  • History shows how long suffering God really is, considering the affairs of men and the condition of his heart.
Revelation 6:11
And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
  • God has a time in mind and in store for this all to stop, permanently-JUDGMENT DAY
  • Meanwhile, we should expect persecution, rest in the LORD, wait it all out, not be surprised, anxious

John 15:18
If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

Philippians 4:6-7
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.


Hebrews 4:1-11
Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.
And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

Revelation 6:12
And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
  • This is the DAY of the LORD, as prophesied throughout the prophecies of the Old and New Testament, by Jesus Himself
  • Each sign is stronger, undeniable, and yet denied by the unbelievers, blinded by sin and the enemy
Joel 3:15
The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.

Isaiah 13:10
For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.

Isaiah 24:23
Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.

Ezekiel 32:7
And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light.

Matthew 24:29
Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

Mark 13:24
But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,

Luke 21:25
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

Revelation 6:13
And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
  • The devils unleashed, unrestrained evil will be the order of the day
  • No longer accessing the Throne of God, they are free only to harass mankind on the earth, unprotected from any harm
  • The saints will either be martyred or protected by God (Israel, the Woman)
Revelation 6:14
And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
  • This is a cataclysmic event, perhaps with meteors large and small hitting earth
  • Scrolls unfold in two directions at once, so this is an east to west occurrence
Revelation 6:15
And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
  • Judgment at this point is universal.......their money and power useless, they become just another person trying to survive God's wrath
  • Currently these caves are being built worldwide, but to no avail as, once things begin to happen, everyone will follow the powerful rich going in and follow them
  • They will be crowded fast, with limited resources and a world around them crumbling
  • This world crumbling also will ruin their hideaway spots as well
Revelation 6:16
And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
  • They know Who the Judge is, and yet do not repent and get saved
  • They are only thinking of this life, the present, physical world
  • They want to be hidden FROM Christ, not hidden IN Christ

Romans 8:1
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Revelation 6:17
For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
  • They know the Judge, and also the Day of the LORD, Judgment Day
  • The implied answer to their question is the only answer to it-NO ONE is able to stand it, survive it
Revelation Chapter 7
