What does the red horse in Revelation 6 stand for?

3/29

And another, a red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another; and a great sword was given to him. (Revelation 6:4)

At the first glance, this verse seems to be associated with earthly wars. In reality it is not so.

Please look at what Jesus said:

“Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.” (Matthew 10:34)

If you read the above two verses together, you will know that what the person on the red horse is going through is not a war between nations on the earth; rather it is an inner and personal battle between the old and new lives.

If a person is determined to follow Jesus, repent and have his or her old life replaced with a new one that is pleasing...

What does the white horse in Revelation 6 stand for?

3/28

I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. (Revelation 6:2)

As the first seal is broken, he who sits on a white horse symbolizes all followers of Christ throughout the ages who have already conquered.

The “bow” in his hand – its Greek root derives from a verb which means “to produce, to labor.” In other words, this person who rides on a white horse, like a pregnant woman going through labor pains before delivery, is preparing to receive a new life from God.

The phrase “he went out conquering and to conquer” refers to the saints who were willing to follow Christ in conquering together with the Lord during the Millennial Jubilee...

Why does the Lord so detest the deeds of those “neither cold nor hot”?

3/23 (What Is the Lukewarm Symptom?)

“I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.” (Revelation 3:15-16)

Why does the Lord so detest the deeds of those “neither cold nor hot”, to a point that He wants to spit them out of His mouth?

We all know that when water is heated to its boiling point, vapor like someone’s “breath” is seen ascending up. Similarly when water is cooled to a point of becoming ice, white smoke like “breath” is also seen coming from the ice.

A man lives by the air he breathes. The Bible often calls this breath “spirit.”

Jesus goes right to the heart of the matter by saying: “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits...

Number of Perfection 7 and the Numerical Root of God’s Glory 370

cover for book Numbers & Roots of Numbers in the Bible

Number and Root Pair 7–370

Lastly, let us talk about 7 and its self root 370 – this pair represents the glorious manifestation of God’s life, way, truth and grace. Due to God’s redemption we are entering into heaven and enjoying rest with and in God; in the same way we are entering the kingdom of God and having the intimate union with God eventually realized. All these spiritual realities are invisible to man’s naked eyes but can be felt and experienced by saints who are living a life that overcomes numerous obstacles.

It is worthwhile mentioning that the number root 370 comes from the number 37 according to the Trinity Root Function. We can understand this way: 37 represents Lord Jesus, who is the Head, the King of kings and Lord of lords*; 370 represents the kingdom of God, which is th...

Resurrection of Mankind: Its Number and Root of Number 8—(1459-919)

cover for book Numbers & Roots of Numbers in the Bible

Appointed number and root pair 8—(1459-919)

This appointed number and root pair 8—(1459-919) is closely associated with mankind’s resurrection after death.

One glance at this root (1459-919) will tell us in black and white that resurrection after death will not only take place for certain, but will also include each one of us. The reason is that everyone is hitched to this (1459-919) cycle and eventually no one can escape the reality of having to face death and resurrection, whether you believe it or not, and whether you are willing or not.

In this dual-element root, the number 1459 (we can call it “the branched root”) can be truncated (or cut into smaller pieces) as 1/45/9: The number 45 is the Theomatic value of “Adam,” number 1 in front of 45 means the first one, i.e...

Panoramic view of the whole book of Revelation

3/02

And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the holy city, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. (Revelation 21:10)

The key to the book of Revelation is that we must stand on top of a mountain to look at things in a panoramic and continued fashion: from far to near, from ancient to today.

Simply speaking, what the entire book of Revelation talks about is like a long ram’s horn, consisting of the horn’s main body, tail and tip. These three sections correspond respectively to these terms that we have mentioned earlier: the Millennial Jubilee, the End Stage and the End Point.

In particular, the seven churches in chapters 2 and 3, the seven seals in chapter 6, the two witnesses in chapter 11, the woman in chapter 12 and things in chapter 14 ar...

Dividing Truths in Revelation: Day 1 Message

3/01

I, John, your brother and fellow partaker in the tribulation and kingdom and perseverance which are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. (Revelation 1:9)

John was on the island of “Patmos” when he saw visions out of heaven and received revelations from God. “Patmos” means “my killing” in Greek.

This can be said as the central theme for the entire book of Revelation. God will use His way of “my killing” to terminate and get rid of everything that comes from the old life of Adam so that the life of the Lord could reign in His saints.

Like the book of Daniel, Revelation has been read by many as a prophetic book. These people are often on a “wild-goose chase,” hoping to uncover mysteries concerning the future.
