The Sound Of Revelation’s Approaching Hoofbeats from Prophecy News Watch
Those of us eagerly awaiting Jesus’ appearing did not expect to see so many signs of the coming kingdom of the antichrist before going home to be with our Savior. We never anticipated seeing so much vile wickedness and demonic deception before the Rapture.
For that matter, I assumed that the Lord would severely judge America long before now.
“With such failed expectations,” one might ask, “why do I believe Jesus will soon appear to take us home? Why do I remain convinced that we live in the season of His return for His church?”
It’s because the world is so very close to the fulfillment of Revelation 6:1-8, and Scripture assures us that we will be with Jesus in heaven before these riders begin their deadly trek across planet earth.
Can you guess who wrote the following?
“I have heard the distant sound of hoofbeats. I have seen the evil riders on the horizons of our lives. I am still an evangelist whose one goal is to proclaim new life in Christ, but there is serious trouble ahead for our world, for all of us who live in it, and in the four horsemen of the Apocalypse there is both a warning and wisdom for those troubled days ahead.”
If these things were true back in 1983 when Billy Graham penned these words, how much more so today? How near must we be to Jesus’ appearing?
What sounds do we here today that point to the nearness of the Lord opening the seal judgments of Revelation 6?
THE CLAMOR OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER ON OUR DOORSTEP
Revelation 6:1-2 tells us about the first seal, the first rider:
Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, “Come and see.” And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.
