When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth (Rev. 6:7-8).
The actual color of the fourth horse is green, the color of the flag of Islam. The Greek word is cloros. Strong’s Dictionary says,
From the same as G5514; greenish, that is, verdant, dun-colored: - green, pale.
Here are the other places the word is used:
Then He commanded them to make them all sit down in groups on the green grass. So they sat down in ranks, in hundreds and in fifties (Mark 6:39-40).
The first angel sounded: And hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up (Rev. 8:7).
They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads (Rev. 9:4).
John says about the green horse and its rider that Death and Hades followed behind him. We have seen some of the violence of extreme Islam as IS conquers cities in Iraq, Syria, and other countries. Death and Hades (usually translated “hell” in the New Testament) certainly follow this green horse. They crucify and rape even children. They cut off people’s heads. They torture people. They sell young girls into sexual slavery. They cut off hands of even children if they are caught stealing. These are just a few of the examples of their violence and cruelty.
I watched the May 21, 2015 video of the John Ankerberg Show on the internet at jashow.org.
He had three guests on his show that week. Two were former Muslims who had converted to Christianity. One was Kama Saleem who worked with that late PLO leader Yasser Arafat and the other was Dr. Emir Caner whose father built mosques. The third guest was retired general William Boykin, former commander of Delta force and who has studied the history of Islam. The three of them were exposing the infiltration of Islam into all facets of American (and European) society.
General Boykin pointed out that people used to deny this infiltration until former President of Egypt, Mohamed Morsi, proudly proclaimed he was recruited by the Muslim Brotherhood while attending the University of Southern California through the Muslim Students Association. Now it is known there are hundreds of fronts for recruiting for radical Islam in the United States. Their goal is a caliphate, a global Islamic state or empire. Their weapon is Jihad, and physical war is only one of the many facets they use to conquer a society. They are conquering little by little from within. They said that radical Muslims have already infiltrated schools, banks and financial systems, television, government and just about every facet of our society. Many of our financial institutions are already complying with sharia law. This means that a percentage of any transaction with any of these financial institutions goes to fund Jihad!
One thing that is troubling in all of this is that it is difficult to tell on which side our president is. He claims to be a Christian, but I have heard him say publically that he does not believe in the Bible. The Bible says,
“He who is of God hears God's words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God”
Obama does not hear God’s word because he does not believe it. Yet I continually hear people say about his profession of Christianity, “When he says he is a Christian, I take him at his word.” I don’t take him at his word because I know what the Bible says about Christians. If they don’t believe the Bible, they cannot believe in the God of Christianity. Furthermore, his administration has begun to persecute Christians for their faith. This is not something a Christian would do.
In Iraq fighter pilots helping in the war against IS are complaining that they have such stringent rules of engagement placed on them that their hands are basically tied. They know they could do much more to help, but they are not allowed to. Meanwhile, I heard a talk show host speak about a report that Christians are dying at the hands of IS at a rate of 11 per hour. It is becoming the new holocaust. I just read a story of IS burning an 80-year-old Christian woman alive because she would not comply with sharia law.
It can be clearly seen trampling through the Middle East that the rider of the green horse of Islam is Death with Hell following close behind. We already know they are here in the U.S. but in hiding. It is only a matter of time before that rider gets a hold of some nuclear weapons and uses them on our cities. The Islamic State has billions of dollars in the bank. They are already boasting that they could buy a nuke from Pakistan and smuggle it through South America and then across the border of the U.S. They are recruiting more and more warriors and are getting more and more funding. How long will it be before that green horse will be clearly seen trampling across in the red, white, and blue or United States of America? May God have mercy on this nation because they won’t!
