Revelation 6.1-6 is a fascinating and mysterious passage in the Bible. It describes the opening of the first four seals of a scroll held by the Lamb, which unleashes a series of events that bring about significant changes in the world. We will explore the meaning and significance of this passage from a biblical perspective.

Before delving into the details of this passage, it is important to understand the context in which it is found. The book of Revelation was written by the apostle John while he was in exile on the island of Patmos, around AD 95. The purpose of the book was to reveal to the church what must soon take place (Revelation 1:1), and to provide comfort and encouragement to believers who were facing persecution.

In Revelation 6.1-6, we see the Lamb, who is Jesus Christ, opening the first four seals of a scroll. As each seal is opened, a rider on a horse is revealed, bringing about a series of events that have significant implications for the world.

The first rider is on a white horse, holding a bow and given a crown. This rider is commonly understood to represent conquest, as he goes out to conquer. However, some scholars believe that this rider may represent the gospel of Jesus Christ, which goes out into the world to conquer hearts and minds.

The second rider is on a red horse, and is given a great sword. This rider represents war, as he takes peace from the earth and people kill one another. This is a powerful image of the destruction and chaos that war can bring.

The third rider is on a black horse, holding scales in his hand. This rider represents famine, as he brings scarcity and hunger to the earth. The scales in his hand represent the rationing of food, as people struggle to survive during a time of scarcity.

The fourth rider is on a pale horse, and his name is Death. He is followed by Hades, and together they are given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, famine, pestilence, and wild beasts. This rider represents death and the grave, and the devastating impact that these things can have on the world.

Together, these four horsemen represent the judgment of God upon the world. They are a powerful reminder that the world will face judgment for its sin, and that God will hold people accountable for their actions.

However, it is important to note that this passage is not just about judgment. It is also about the mercy and grace of God. The Lamb who opens the seals is none other than Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for the sins of the world. Through his death and resurrection, he offers forgiveness and salvation to all who will turn to him in faith.

In addition, the book of Revelation also gives us a glimpse of the future that awaits those who follow Christ. In Revelation 21:4, we read that God will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.

In conclusion, Revelation 6.1-6 is a powerful and significant passage in the Bible. It reminds us of the judgment of God upon the world, but also of the mercy and grace of Jesus Christ. It is a call to repentance and faith, and a reminder that we must be ready for the return of Christ. As we await his coming, let us hold fast to the hope and promise of eternal life that he offers, and let us live our lives in a manner that honors him.

 

Revelation 6.1-6 NASB

The First Seal: Conqueror on a White Horse

Then I saw when the Lamb broke one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, “Come!” 2 I looked, and behold, a white horse, and the one who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.

The Second Seal: War

3 When He broke the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come!” 4 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 people would kill one another; and a large sword was given to him.

The Third Seal: Famine

5 When He broke the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, “Come!” I looked, and behold, a black horse, and the one who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. 6 And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not damage the oil and the wine.”
