Did you know that barley, wheat, oil and wine are “code words” for what is to be harvested in OUR lives when they are ripened, and that the four riders and the four horses are progressively instrumental in bringing forth that spiritual harvest? Oh brethren, if we read the Book of Revelation with our reasoning mind instead of what the Spirit interprets the symbols to mean, we will find ourselves in darkness of understanding. Even worse, we will be stunted in growth unable to grow up into the full measure of the stature of Christ.
Erroneous teachings have crept into the church, even having begun in the early church, and we must be deprogrammed in order for our souls to be saved. ONLY the knowledge of the truth is going to set us free, and if we don’t realize we’ve been indoctrinated by false doctrines (ALL of us have,) we will remain in bondage. There are literally five months between the Feast of Pentecost and the Feast of Tabernacles which spiritually shows that there is a grace (#5) period of time for Christ to be fully formed in us and for all the errors we’ve been taught to be exposed and removed. We are presently at the end of the church age, and it is angels (messengers who have the truth we need to hear) who will separate the wheat from the tares. This is foremost a separating of the truth from lies, and yes, there will be the separation of the wicked from the just ones as well, but truth must be established in His people FIRST. We must be FULLY grown up.
Who will be the ones in the company of firstfruits to come into perfection,…. into full salvation of the spirit, soul and body? Will YOU be one of them, or will you be one who will be tormented by locusts, unable to die to self and all its carnality? For further understanding of the meaning of locusts, you can read about this in my post: https://ridetheheavens.com/2018/07/07/locusts/ Listen: The hour has come for the overcomers who have the Spirit WITHOUT MEASURE to come forth…. Yay! For us to enter into our FULL INHERITANCE which is CHRIST manifested through us having come in our flesh.
Now is the time for us to understand what the four horses in the Book of Revelation represent. Now the seals in our mind must be broken in order for Christ to be SEEN (uncovered.) I tell you boldly that the seals, riders and horses are NOT what most of us have been taught.
Every one of the horses is symbolic of GOD’s power riding into our lives making war on our FLESH. Until they come, we have no idea of what’s in us. The “white” horse represents “light and illumination” which is what the color white signifies, and the rider is the Lord Himself coming to “conquer us with a bow”: “Thou didst ride upon thine horses and thy chariots of salvation. Thy bow was made quite naked…. EVEN THY WORD” which is His conquering power dealing with our flesh. (Hab. 3: 8,9) THAT is how He conquers, brethren.
It’s God who takes away our peace, not the devil. Truly our peace gets disturbed when we see the depravity of flesh, realizing that there’s NOTHING GOOD in us. If we don’t know it, we will when the horses come charging forth in their full might. Hear it: Jesus Christ said: “I am come not to send peace on earth, but a sword.“ (Matthew 10: 34) The earth represents our “flesh,” and only war against it is going to remove its power operating in us.
The next horse that follows is “red,” which is the Greek word “purrhos” that means “flame-like” or “flame-colored,” and it comes from the Greek word for “fire.” Oh yes, God comes to purify us with fire…. It’s HIS consuming fire that will burn out the flesh in us. The carnal, red-Adamic mind goes through a purification that leads to the restoration of the soul after that purification process is finished.
The black horse and its rider represent GOD’S power stripping us of the carnality in our lives, even the starving out of our flesh. When this black horse comes on the scene, the voice in the middle of the four living creatures cries out saying: “A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny, and see you hurt not the oil and the wine” (Rev. 6: 5,6) It means that the oil and wine are there, but the time has not yet come for them to be opened and appropriated. The fullness of joy cannot be experienced as long as we are in Pentecost with its gifts and fivefold ministries. There must be a transition from the church age (the candlestick realm) to rulership in the kingdom age (the THRONE realm) by those operating in the sevenfold spirit of God…. by those who go on into perfection.
We have been taught by teachers in the body of Christ that the scripture about the black horse points to a literal famine coming. Oh no brethren! We have had many natural famines and there will be many more, but hallelujah, this scripture is about our fleshly appetites being starved out. It takes a mighty work of God to do it, beginning first with God taking away our peace.
Finally, we come to the pale horse which is not a pale horse. The root word “kloros” in Greek, according to Strong’s concordance, is NOT “pale,” but “green,” the same word that is used in Rev. 9:4 that states “It was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any GREEN (kloros) thing, neither any tree.” This was mistranslated as “pale” probably because to the carnal mind, it makes no sense that “Death” comes by life (that which is green.) Oh brethren, only life can get rid of death. It is life that swallows up death, not the other way around. Look at the scriptures that reveal this truth: “I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless, I live, yet not I, but Christ.” (Galatians 2: 20) “The law of the spirit of LIfE has set me free from the law of sin and DEATH (Romans 8: 2) so we see by these that DEATH IS DESTROYED BY LIFE:…. THAT is the message of the fourth rider on the green horse.
This NOT the teaching of the carnal church, eh? The Book of Revelation 1: 4 states that whoever reads, hears, and keeps the words of prophecy in this book is “BLESSED.” Has the teaching of the main line church’s literal interpretations blessed you? It has not blessed me! The Bible unequivocally states concerning the things that are to take place that the “time is at hand”…. In verse 1 it records that the things written must “SHORTLY”come to pass.” People of God, this book can not be speaking of chronological time…Over 2000 years have passed since John wrote the Book of Revelation and THAT is NOT a short time by any stretch of the imagination. This is speaking of the time in which those in the past read it, the time in which it is read now by us, and the time it will be read in the future by other believers. Those things shortly coming to pass shall be happening IN a people: It’s the progressive revelation of Christ in us: The Book of Revelation is about the removal of the flesh that has kept Christ hidden,…. about the contrast between the Bride of Christ with the harlot church,…. about the glory that is going to be revealed in His people…. Yay, about Christ the hope of glory no longer being just a “hope,”…. BUT about Christ come in His “glorified presence,” revealed IN and THROUGH US…. Oh KNOW of a certainty that it is NOT about literal catastrophic happenings on this earth!!
I tell you emphatically: “Life is shortly going to swallow up death”! and I‘m one who is shouting: “Come Lord Jesus! Come quickly in your people! Come! Come IN ME!” This is what the world is waiting for! This is what we have been waiting for! This is what those who are in the clouds… even what the spirits of just men made perfect and all in heaven are waiting for!
Can you hear it: “The time is AT HAND!”
