Sometimes, I watch and what I see involves events that
are transpiring on the Earth. At other times, my gaze
turns heavenward. The Lord is revealing something and
he wants his people to know, now, what he is saying
from the throne.
In times of old, prophets were carried along by the
Holy Spirit. They were the only ones with that spirit.
Now, all believers have the holy spirit, therefore, we
prophets should be bringing forth words and insight
that confirm to you that you are hearing from God as
touching a particular point. I trust that what I say
now will accomplish this.
Three weeks ago, I prophesied during a Sunday worship service
in Hollywood, FL that the Lord was sovereignly breaking
yokes and chains in peoples lives. Where people had
been beset by sins, they would now realize they were free.
Since that time, there has been a move, a change in the
spirit. I have seen it at our church, and it is reported
in a few others, that desperately lost people, drunkards,
suicidally depressed people and the like are being
drawn into the churches and being converted. It is
something that God is doing sovereignly. It does not
depend on your faith or my faith.
So, I am seeing a move, a change, in the spirit, from my
watchtower. What else am I seeing?
I was reading in Revelation 4-6 and while doing that,
the Lord spoke to me that the beasts of Revelation 4
were the same beasts as those mentioned in chapter 6.
This may be old news to some of you, but it was revelation
knowledge to me. I began to search and inquire to see
what new understanding this would provide.
First Beast: like unto a lion (4:7) (Greek-leon)
First Seal: a rider, having no arrows, goes forth to
First Horse: white (6:2) Zechariah 6:6 says that the
white horse goes forth into the North country, following
the black horse.
Interpretation: The release of the spirit of antichrist,
who goes forth to conquer wonderfully by peace. This seal
has been open since the founding of the League Of Nations
in 1917. This antichrist force will follow prosperity
and capitalism into the North countries.
Second Beast: calf, or young bull (Greek-moschos)(4:7)
Second Seal: peace taken from the earth, much killing
by the sword, murder and warfare. (6:3)
Second Horse: red (6:4) Zechariah saw the red horse
too, but he gave no hint as to where it went, other
than it was hitched to the first chariot.
Interpretation: World communism, with it's seat of
power in Moscow (compare moschos), is released upon the
Earth, marked in 1917 by the Bolshevik revolution. We
see it evidenced in obvious names: Red Army, Red China.
Third Beast: It had a face as a man (4:7) (Greek-anthropos)
Third Seal: A rider with balance scales in his hand,
sent forth. A voice, speaking of trade and prices. This
voice was spoken in the midst of all four beasts,
directing them to hurt not the oil and the wine.
Third Horse: Black. Zechariah 6:6 says that the black
horses go forth into the North country. Could the 6:6
scripture reference identify these regions as the
power base of antichrist?
Interpretation: The black horse symbolizes capitalism.
It's seat is the United States, which, through freedom,
is symbolized by the man...the individual and individual rights.
The rider is given instructions on trade, something very
common in capitalism. Instructions are given to the
other three beasts that wherever this horse goes, the
oil and wine will not be hurt...there will be prosperity.
Fourth Beast: It was like a flying eagle (4:7) (Greek-aetos.)
Fourth Seal: A rider named death, with hell following
after. Power to kill was given over a fourth part of the earth.
Killing is to be done by sword, hunger, death and by the
beasts of the earth.
Fourth Horse: A pale horse.
Interpretation: The horse is the color of gangrene, a
sickly, pale greenish yellow. This death is inflicted
on a fourth of the earth, not a fourth of mankind. Why
the associated beast is an eagle, I cannot say. One
thing is certain, a fourth of the earth has been afflicted
by plague and death ever since WW 1.
One last observation: Zechariah's horses are said to be the four spirits of
the heavens, which go forth from standing before the Lord
of all the earth. (6:5) In that they are four spirits,
they are like unto the four beasts of revelation 4 who cry
Holy, Holy, Holy, day and night.
Why is God speaking this to me now? I think it is to
emphasize that these forces have been released some time
ago. We are not awaiting their release, only the
culmination of their efforts.
