Last December, I had a very strange dream vision. There was a great dark sea before me, and along with many other people, I stood on the beach. Suddenly we saw four pale ghost-like horses galloping out of the sea.
Following these horses was a man who looked similar to the late pope, John Paul II, also coming out of the sea. We could all feel an intense sense of fear, even dread as they all appeared. I remember encouraging those around me not to be afraid and trust in God.
It was quite disturbing. I did not know what to make of it really, though from the Bible of course, I knew that “great sea,” always signifies either many nations of the world or geographic region of the Mediterranean Sea, which is the Middle East.
I shared it only with my husband and couple of friends. We prayed that if this vision was from God that He would make its meaning clear to us. From my previous experience with dreams and visions, I also know that sometimes the meanings of them become clearer as the time of their fulfillment draws near.
Then, about a week ago, one of the friends with whom I shared this vision showed me the YouTube video of the pale green horse appearing among protesters in Egypt. She said that it reminded her of my dream vision.
Even if it was only an optical illusion from one of the flares, it was quite uncanny that it would take recognizable shape of a horse with skeletal rider on it.
Is that the fourth horse of the Apocalypse being unleashed as we watch the events in the Middle East? This would for sure shake up the end-time scenarios of many, me included. It would mean that we are more into the prophetic events of the Book of Revelation than we previously thought with all three previous horses already riding while the rapture still did not yet take place.
We must be really careful here and remember that we could sometimes be wrong in interpreting the timing and sequence of prophetic events written in the Bible. Just as scribes who knew the prophecies concerning the Messiah, did not recognize His first coming, so the Bible scholars and students of today might not have it all right regarding the timing and order of the events preceding and accompanying His second coming to earth.
If the Pale Horse and its rider Death, have been released already, then we can expect terrible times approaching. Revelation 6: 8 tells us that “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.”
This means that the fourth of global population will die in wars, famines, and deasese creating chaos out of which, the “Beast coming out of the sea”, will emerge.
However, I am compelled to share with you that if God allows His people to go through these times, He will make a difference between those who belong to Him, and those who do not. He will protect those who trust Him, regardless of how bad it gets.
When the fifth seal will be opened, many believers will be martyred for their faith. Jesus told us that we will be persecuted because of our faith in Him. Those who are called to become martyrs will be given His grace, and even though not all will have to give up their life for Him, we all must be willing to do so.
As I wrote before in my article, Great Tribulation and the Rapture of The Saints, the tribulation is not necessarily the wrath of God upon the earth. He will take His Church before He judges the earth.
Until then, we should watch, pray, and testify to all those who will listen. Thus helping others to get ready for what is to come. The Holy Spirit is with us to lead us into all truth, and as long as we love the truth, He will not allow us to be deceived. Let us not fear, but have faith in Jesus as He had His faith in His Father.
