The Seal Judgments of Revelation Chapter Six (Part
MR

Take Me To Post Comment Form

Verse 2 of chapter six begins by describing the first of four horsemen who appear. They are controlled and inspired by satan and each appears as a response to the opening of a seal. Each horseman is a weapon in satan's arsenal to use against the children of God who remain on the earth.

2And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given to him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

The antichrist appears here. He is satan's response to Jesus. He comes in masquerading as the Messiah who will save the people of God from the forces of evil. His masquerade includes a white horse. White is the symbol for peace and the horse is a war animal. He disguises himself as the Prince of Peace. Jesus says, "by peace he will destroy many."

His weapon is a bow although he has no arrows. Jesus neves uses a bow. His weapon of choice is always a sword. The bow represents satan's primary weapon of deception.

Paul tells us how to defeat this weapon in Ephesians chapter six:

16Above all, taking the shield of faith, with which you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

The fiery darts are the arrows of doubt which our adversary uses in order to damage our relationship with God. The antichrist has no arrows here because he can't defeat the elect of God.

2 Thes 2:8-12 gives more insight into this passage of scripture:

8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9Even him, whose coming is after the working of satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10And with all delusion of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

The sword which Jesus uses is the word of truth which Paul refers to here as the spirit of his mouth (truth). The truth delivers the people of God from the bondage which is brought about by deception. You also should see here how satan's main weapon is deception.
