Revelation 6:1-2, Who Is The Rider On The White Horse?

The rider on the white horse [Rev. 6:1-2] coming to conquer the inhabitants of the earth 
The question is who is the rider on the white horse, Jesus or the Antichrist?

I got an insight from the Lord regarding the identity of the rider on the white horse

Revelation 6:1-2

Then I saw the Lamb open one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures say with a voice like thunder, “Come!” 2 I looked, and there was a white horse. Its rider held a bow; a crown was given to him, and he went out as a conqueror in order to conquer.

The rider on the white horse starts off the Great Tribulation.

Revelation 19:11-16

11 Then I saw heaven opened, and there was a white horse. Its rider is called Faithful and True, and he judges and makes war with justice. 12 His eyes were like a fiery flame, and many crowns were on his head. He had a name written that no one knows except himself. 13 He wore a robe dipped in blood, and his name is called the Word of God. 14 The armies that were in heaven followed him on white horses, wearing pure white linen. 15 A sharp sword came from his mouth, so that he might strike the nations with it. He will rule them with an iron rod. He will also trample the winepress of the fierce anger of God, the Almighty. 16 And he has a name written on his robe and on his thigh: King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

This rider is Jesus Christ as we see keywords or phrases as “His name is called the Word of God”, “The armies that were in heaven followed him on white horses, wearing pure white linen.”, and “A sharp sword came from his mouth”

  • Jesus is called the Word of God in John 1:1,14
  • At Jesus’ second coming, He will come with the saint’s Revelation 19:8, Matthew 24:29-31
  • A double-edged sword is referenced to Jesus in Revelation 1:16

Jesus will only come after the Great Tribulation and not during the beginning of it like in the first seal according to Matthew 24:29-30 which says, 29 “Immediately after the distress of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not shed its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the peoples of the earth will mourn; and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

So the rider in Revelation 6:1-2 cannot be Jesus because that rider with the bow will start the Tribulation while Jesus comes to defeat the Antichrist after the Great Tribulation to set up His millennial kingdom.

Unless God opens our eyes, how can we understand anything? I thank the Lord God Almighty who gives His children who seek His face insight and understanding.

False Doctrine: Doublespeak

In Matthew 4:5-6, the devil used Scripture to try to make Jesus sin against God by twisting its meaning

Folks, we must understand and acknowledge that when we see Biblical doctrine being taught and it seems to be moving away from the sound teachings as found in the New Testament, we must warn the believers of a potential landmine. I have come across MODCONSPIRACY’s blog in reference to Dee and the dialogue they had. Dee’s interpretation regarding the End Times [the Book of Revelation] is not just off, but scary off. We as believers are living in unparalleled times and really close to the return of Jesus Christ. 

Jesus wants all His children to know, at least the basics, concerning His second coming. 

Matthew 16:2-3

2 He replied, “When evening comes you say, ‘It will be good weather because the sky is red.’ 3 And in the morning, ‘Today will be stormy because the sky is red and threatening.’ You know how to read the appearance of the sky, but you can’t read the signs of the times.

Jesus said in Revelation 1:3 Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear the words of this prophecy and keep what is written in it, because the time is near.”

The word “blessed” has the meaning of being fortunate and happy.

The Lord will bless those who read and ask Him for the true understanding of the signs of the times that we are living in regards to the Book of Revelation.

Satan does not want you to understand the End Time events because he wants you to be unprepared and caught off guard. 

Below is Dee’s comment that needs to be shown because as a community of believers in Jesus, we have to help other Christians not step into devastating landmines.

[Dee@Sealed in Christ said]

Let me be clear: I place little to no value on traditional biblical views. Rather, I place value on what the Bible alone has to say. How a person interprets the Bible (myself included) does not make it doctrine. And I will most certainly challenge anyone that refers to tradition as doctrine.

I do not, I never have, nor will I ever quote any extra-biblical resource as a matter of Truth or Doctrine. Nor did I do this in my exchange above. My point in referencing the Didache in the exchange above, was to show by their own words what the first century believers held to in terms of the timing of the rapture – which, as it turns out, is in direct opposition to what that blogger teaches.

Let me be clear: I place little to no value on traditional biblical views.” 

A traditional Biblical view is Biblical as 2 Thessalonians 2:15 says, “So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold to the traditions you were taught, whether by what we said or what we wrote.”

In 1 Thessalonians 2:13, it defines the word traditions as being the same as the Word of God, read below

1 Thessalonians 2:13

“This is why we constantly thank God, because when you received the word of God that you heard from us, you welcomed it not as a human message, but as it truly is, the word of God, which also works effectively in you who believe.”

The traditions that Paul and the rest of the Apostles were verbally spreading before it was written down was the same message of that found in the Bible we have today. 

Indirectly she is saying that she places no value in the Word of God. Either she is confused or cunning.

Now the next thing she says is very interesting.

“Rather, I place value on what the Bible alone has to say.”…..”I do not, I never have, nor will I ever quote any extra-biblical resource as a matter of Truth or Doctrine.”

After she said that she ended with this

My point in referencing the Didache in the exchange above, was to show by their own words what the first century believers held to in terms of the timing of the rapture”

That is what you call a sly of the mouth.

Insight: Sly of the Mouth

When a person starts to say something truthful and finishes in contradicting that in which they started to say. It is done in a subtle way to capture the person for derailment. 

She is introducing to the reader in a very subtle way the Didache which is supposedly the teachings of the 12 Apostles written by an anonymous author. She also says that that is what the early church believed in [“…their own words what the first century believers held to….”]. That is how it is done, to take a person away from Scripture and into extra-unbiblical sources. 

Just because someone starts with what seems to be sound doctrine doesn’t mean they will end their teachings with sound doctrine. We must be watchful, for this is how deception works.

Insight: Deception

A true statement or teaching that is tweaked very slightly to mean something else without the reader picking up on it. 




Verse By Verse Through Revelation (22:16-21) The Finale


16 “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to attest these things to you for the churches. I am the root and descendant of David, the bright morning star.”

The Book of Revelation came straight from Jesus Christ to the Apostle John, to warn us and to show us that no matter what happens to us here, we are more than victorious.

The phrase “I am the root and descendant of David” shows that Jesus is the promised Christ/Messiah who was foretold in the Old Testament that would come.

Deuteronomy 18:15

The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own brothers. You must listen to him.

Jeremiah 23:5-6

5 “Look, the days are coming”—this is the Lord’s declaration— “when I will raise up a Righteous Branch for David. He will reign wisely as king and administer justice and righteousness in the land. 6 In his days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely. This is the name he will be called: The Lord Is Our Righteousness.

The phrase “the bright morning star” could refer to the sign given by which it would show who was the Christ, the chosen one from God.

Matthew 2:1-2

After Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of King Herod, wise men from the east arrived in Jerusalem, 2 saying, “Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star at its rising and have come to worship him.”

17 Both the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” Let anyone who hears, say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come. Let the one who desires take the water of life freely.

The phrase “Both the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” The believer and the Spirit of God are one in mind, the desire for the coming of Christ and to be with Him.

The Holy Spirit through the believer in Jesus encourages everyone to put their trust in Jesus Christ for eternal life.

18 I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book.

Whoever adds to the words of the Book of Revelation will drink a full cup of His wrath. In other words, to add to the Bible is to reject the Lord Jesus Christ, as the evidence shows a lack of love for God’s Word.

The phrase “God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book” Could refer to the ones who would add to God’s Word, even though they might not live in the time mentioned in the Book of Revelation, must likely feel some of the plagues in hell which will follow them there.

19 And if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share of the tree of life and the holy city, which are written about in this book.

When a person decides to tamper with God’s Word and remove words or verses as to deceive people by making the Bible say something else, their fate has been sealed. A love for God’s Word shows that the Spirit of God resides in you. Whoever hates the Scriptures, hates Jesus whose name is the Word of God [Revelation 19:13].

20 He who testifies about these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.”

Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!

Jesus said in Matthew 24:32-33, 32 “Learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its branch becomes tender and sprouts leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 In the same way, when you see all these things, recognize that he is near—at the door.

What to look for, for the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. Remember, these things will intensify right before His return. Below is that list.

1. [Verses 4-5] A mass deception through false Christs
2. [Verse 6] Threats of world wars
3. [Verse 7] Famine reaching more countries and earthquakes in various places being more frequent
4. [Verse 9] An alarming rate of persecutions of Christians in the world
5. [Verse 10] A mass decline of Christians, those who professed to be a follower of Jesus Christ and turns back from following Him
6. [Verse 11] A lot of false Christians will arise [the prosperity Gospel and liberal Christianity of all kind] and deceive many from following the true Christ of Scripture
7. [Verse 12] The love for one’s neighbor will decline drastically through the influx of Atheism, cults, and the occult.
8. [Verse 14] The Gospel will reach to all the countries of the world, everyone will hear the Gospel about Jesus Christ
9. [Verse 15] And the greatest sign to watch for is the rebuilding of the Third Temple when the Antichrist will place his statue of himself in the corner of the temple and proclaim to be God [2 Thessalonians 2:4]. That act will start the Great Tribulation plagues mentioned in the Book of Revelation.

21 The grace of the Lord Jesus be with everyone. Amen.

The Greek word for grace is charis which means kindness and favor.

God’s favor upon a person is having their sins forgiven and obtaining eternal life through faith in the Son of God, Jesus Christ.
