12.3 Revelation – Coming to Triumph

Coming to Triumph

When we get to the 3rd and 4th horses and riders of Revelation 6, it is clear that God is not launching a tactical strike, a measured response or a retaliatory airstrike.  God is not coming to the battle with the intent of driving sin to the negotiating table.  He has no plan to sign a treaty with sin.

It reminded me of the instructions that God gave the Israelites for their entry into the promised land.  They were supposed to remove all the people and all their gods (Exodus 23).

But the tribes of Israel, under Joshua, thought they knew better and began forming treaties and negotiated agreements to share the land that God had given them.  Instead of being able to live out a foreshadowing of the complete removal that God had planned for the entire world in the end times through the actions in the promised land, they instead only demonstrated man’s continued disobedience even in the very best of times.

But Revelation is different.  In these final days, God is not only instructing, but He is acting.  He is sending forth the armies, starting with 4 horsemen.  And the end is not only certain but complete – God not only wins, but the enemy is totally eliminated to never fight again.

 

My Answers:

6.
a pair of scales, come, he brings famine and poverty on the world, an accounting

7.
Hell, Sheol, the underworld, the grave

8.
a.
4 horses, same colors, each with rider (Zec on chariot) – Explanation of who they are in Zed, 4 spirits of heaven  They go out in a different order.
Consistency of the scriptures and the identification of these spirits of heaven

b.
