Revelations 6:1-8

Revelations 6:1-8 said:
Unsealing the Scroll

1-2I watched while the Lamb ripped off the first of the seven seals.

I heard one of the Animals roar, "Come out!" I looked—I saw a white horse. Its rider carried a bow and was given a victory garland. He rode off victorious, conquering right and left.
3-4When the Lamb ripped off the second seal, I heard the second Animal cry, "Come out!" Another horse appeared, this one red. Its rider was off to take peace from the earth, setting people at each other's throats, killing one another. He was given a huge sword.
5-6When he ripped off the third seal, I heard the third Animal cry, "Come out!" I looked. A black horse this time. Its rider carried a set of scales in his hand. I heard a message (it seemed to issue from the Four Animals): "A quart of wheat for a day's wages, or three quarts of barley, but all the oil and wine you want." 7-8When he ripped off the fourth seal, I heard the fourth Animal cry, "Come out!" I looked. A colorless horse, sickly pale. Its rider was Death, and Hell was close on its heels. They were given power to destroy a fourth of the earth by war, famine, disease, and wild beasts.

It is not difficult to see that this is already happening in the world. There is no peace in the world.

that was the point I made to my mother but she won't listen to me. So I am looking for something to influence her to believe me.

Dear LampToMyFeet

Matthew 24 explains Revelation 6, and both chapters describe exactly the same events in exactly the same chronological order.

Thus the White Horse is explained in in Matt 24:4 as "Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. "
The next, the Red Horse is described in Matt 24:6 as "And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:"
The next, Black Horse is described in Matt 24:7 "and there shall be famines, "
The next Pale Horse/s (actually two, called Death and Hell or Hades) are explained in Matt 24:7 as "and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places".

These first 4 seals or 4 horsemen of the apocalypse, are described in Matt 24 as just "the beginning of sorrows."

The fifth seal of Revelation 6:9 describes martyrdom of the saints in the end-time, which is exactly the same as Christ next describes in Matt 24:9 9 "Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake."

Thus to understand Revelation 6, simply follow along in Matt 24 since both describe the same set of events in exactly the same chronological order.

Happy studying
