Revelation 6

Revelation 6: The Sixth Seal: “The Signs of the Times”

The Lamb opens the seals, which open a series of visions before John;

  1. John sees a white horse, whose rider has a bow and a crown, and is a conqueror.
  2. John sees a red horse, whose rider brings war and conflict, and wields a great sword.
  3. John sees  a black horse, whose rider has a pair of scales.
  4. John sees  a pale horse, whose rider is Death, with power to kill by the sword, hunger and the beasts of the earth.
  5. John sees  martyrs crying for vengeance. They are told to wait a while longer, until those destined for martyrdom complete their number.
  6. John sees  a great earthquake; the sun becomes black, the moon red as blood. The stars fall to the earth. The rich and powerless flee, saying to the mountains and rocks; “…Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb.” (Revelation 6:16)
