Setting the Stage for End-of-Days Armageddon

This blog tries to make its readers aware that various phenomena in nature are setting the stage for these end times.  As has been discussed in previous blogs, various messages coming from human excesses, global economic imbalances and Global Warning’s affects on nature––including water declines, ocean pollution, animal declines and destruction, political inequities, famine, etc.–– indicate that something is terribly amiss in the earth.  Perhaps an extended view of disasters symbolized by the five horses of the Apocalypse in Revelation Chapter 6 and their relationships to present events in nature and world affairs would give better understanding of this writer’s insistence present events are simply harbingers of more brutal times to come. While these prophetic and symbolic horse riders are merely summarized in this blog, future blogs will go into more detail.

 The first horse in Rev. 6: 1 – 2 is the total embodiment of evil in a human being who is called the anti-Christ.  Most Bible scholars agree that he will arise from the Middle East.  Dake’s Reference Bible limits his entrance to come from four nations: Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey.  Certainly two of those nations now appear daily in news headlines.  The anti-Christ arises to make continuing wars between nations in order to solidify his hold on the old Roman and Grecian empires, covering parts of the Middle East, Europe and Northern Africa.  In addition to “hot” warfare (as in Iraq and Afghanistan), these wars will include massive civil unrest; economic collapses (as presently seen in Iceland, Ireland, Greece, etc.); and criminal overthrows of legitimate governments.  Thus, the rider on the second horse in Rev. 6: 3 – 4 is known as War, a spirit that influences men to keep wars and rebellions moving throughout the earth.  The rider on the third horse in verses 5 and 6 is known as Famine. His aims were covered in the previous blog. 
 The rider on the fourth horse in verses 7 and 8 is called Death.  He will have the power to kill with sickness, epidemics and other disasters affecting millions of people.  Scientists fear that the presently melting permafrost in the Arctic region will unleash killer diseases that have long been sealed under icy mass.  Other scientists and health workers fear that if Global Warming is not abated, millions more sick and dying people will overwhelm international health agencies.  This rider, Death, will kill by any means, including wild animals, such as loosened tigers, giant snakes, wild boars, chimpanzees, alligators, killer bees, wolves, and other known and unknown beasts unleashed on human populations––conditions that animal control personnel in states like Florida struggle to contain.
 And the fifth rider, following closely after Death, is called Hell.  Those studying Bible prophecies must be keenly aware that evil’s ultimate goal is to take as many millions of people to hell with these evil riders as possible.  It is those ultimate goals that Christians should be praying about and working against!
