The word “Apocalypse”and the word “Revelation” mean thesame thing
So, the Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse are really theFour Horsemen Of The Unveiling And Revealing OfThings To Come
First Things First! This unveilingor revealing of things to come was given by Jesus Christ Himself!
First Things First! Revelation 1:1The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
First Things First! John, the beloved Apostle of Jesus Christ, was the one who received this unveiling & revealing of things to come from the Lord while he was exiled on the Isle of Patmos
First Things First! Revelation 1:2Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
First Things First! Revelation 1:9-119 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.
First Things First! Revelation 1:9-1110 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
First Things First! Revelation 1:9-1111 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
First Things First! There is a “Special Promise Of Blessing” for those who hear the words of this Prophecy and keep those things that are written in it
First Things First! Revelation 1:3Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
So, Jesus gave it, John wrote it, and you and I are to read it and keep it!
Revelation 5:1-51 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. 2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
Revelation 5:1-53 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. 4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
Revelation 5:1-55 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
Revelation 6:1And 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.
The First Horseman of The Apocalypse Revelation 6:2And 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.
Just as theHoly Ghost came upon Mary and culminated in the Great Masterpiece of God, The Lord Jesus Christ…
…So also the seed of the serpent will culminatein the great “counterfeit” masterpieceof satan, theanti-christ
2 Corinthians 11:13-1513 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
2 Thessalonians 2:9-119 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
Most of it is in the New Testament and found in Matthew, John,2 Thessalonians,1 & 2 John and Revelation
ANTICHRIST ‘Anti’ means to stand against and in opposition to
ANTICHRIST So, the anti-Christ is one who is against and opposed to Christ
Revelation 17:14These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
Revelation 19:19And 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.
2 Thessalonians 2:4Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
The Apostle John uses the expression anti-Christ five times in his epistles i. the anti-Christwill come 1 John 2:18Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
The Apostle John uses the expression anti-Christ five times in his epistles 2. Many anti-Christsare come 1 John 2:18Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
The Apostle John uses the expression anti-Christ five times in his epistles 3. The anti-Christis a liar 1 John 2:22Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
The Apostle John uses the expression anti-Christ five times in his epistles 4. The message of the Anti-Christ says Jesus did not come in the flesh of God 1 John 4:3And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
The Apostle John uses the expression anti-Christ five times in his epistles 5. The anti-Christ denies Jesus is coming again 2 John 1:7For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. “Is come” is in the present tense and has the idea of “is coming”
So, the ant-ChristOpposes Jesus Christ • He’s against that Jesus Christ is the anointed one • He’s against the ‘God the Father’ and ‘God the Son’ relationship • He’s against that Jesus came in the flesh to be the sacrifice for our sins • He’s against the prophecy that Jesus will return to rule and reign as Messiah & Lord
Many different names are given to the anti-Christ Matthew 24:15When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Jesus referred to him as the ‘Abomination of desolation’
Many different names are given to the anti-Christ Matthew 24:24For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Jesus referred to himas the ‘false Christ’
Many different names are given to the anti-Christ John 5:43I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. Jesus also referred to him as the ‘one who comes in his own name’
Many different names are given to the anti-Christ 2 Thessalonians 2:3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Paul calls him the ‘man of sin’ and ‘son of perdition’
Many different names are given to the anti-Christ 2 Thessalonians 2:8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Paul also calls him the ‘wicked one’
Many different names are given to the anti-Christ Revelation 11:7And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. John refers to him also as ‘the beast’
