Working on another handout on the two (2) riders on a white horse found in the Book of the Revelation. It is posted on the website and included below.


The Two Riders on White Horses Found in the Book of the Revelation

In the Book of Revelation, there are multiple references to a rider on a white horse symbolizing different figures and events. The riders on the white horse in Revelation 6:1-2, 16:12-16, and 19:11-21 represent distinct characters and scenarios.

The First Rider On A White Horse Went Forth Conquering

Revelation 6:1-2   ¶ 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.  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 first rider on the white horse identified in Revelation 6:1-2 is commonly understood as symbolizing the Antichrist or a conqueror who goes out to conquer. This rider is associated with conquest and the spreading of false peace and deception.

Furthermore, the rider on the white horse, the first of the “four horsemen of the Apocalypse” and the color of horse is white, traditionally symbolizing purity or righteousness, but in this context, it conveys a deceptive appearance of righteousness or a false sense of peace.

This rider is given a crown and a bow, indicating authority and the ability to wage war. However, it is important to notice that there is no mention of arrows in his quiver, suggesting that this conquest will be achieved through diplomacy or persuasion rather than direct conflict. Therefore, this rider meets the requirements of being the Antichrist. He will rise to worldly power and deceive many during the end times.

Overall, the rider on the white horse in Revelation 6:1-2 symbolizes a form of conquest or manipulation that brings about chaos and upheaval, setting the stage for the apocalyptic events described in the Book of Revelation.

The Second Rider On a White Horse: King of kings and LORD of lords

Revelation 19:11-21   ¶ And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him [was] called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.  12 His eyes [were] as a flame of fire, and on his head [were] many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.  13 And he [was] clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.  14 And the armies [which were] in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.  15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.  16 And he hath on [his] vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.  17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;  18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all [men, both] free and bond, both small and great.  19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.  20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.  21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which [sword] proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

The rider on the white horse in Revelation 19:11-21 is explicitly identified as Jesus Christ himself. In this passage, Christ is depicted as a conquering warrior leading the armies of heaven in the ultimate battle against the forces of evil. He emerges victorious, defeating the enemies of God and establishing his reign on Earth.

Overall, while each passage features a rider on a white horse, the symbolism and significance of the riders differ. The first rider represents conquest and deception, the second symbolizes the triumphant return of Jesus Christ as the ultimate conqueror.
