While I do find this all intersting, I don't not feel to really know this very well. Whether the end of the would happens tonight or in a million years, should I lead my life differently. I don't think I should. So to worry at all about the end times to me is pointless. I also find it depressing to focus on the end. I hope I'm not offending anyone, that is not my intention.

Maybe depressing is the wrong word. I just feel it is a slight waste of time. No matter when the end is, My life will be led the same way.

I don't think even you believe that, for you're here. Slight waste of time? Your life?

No, my life is not a waste of time, just worrying about the end of it. I should want to live for god out of love for him, not live for him out of fear that the end is near and I don't want to go to hell. Life is not a waste of time. I want to live it in a happy way. Not worrying whether or not today is my last day.

I totally understand. I myself, am very happy. I'm not sitting here 'wringing" my hands and "worrying" about the end either; however, the Spirit Of God has given me a mission to which I must be faithful, and that is to spread the Word that He is soon coming.

His desire is that no one perishes. So, if He desires to use little, old Betsey..........so be it. I'm open.

I, for one can't wait till Jesus comes to give Him piece of my mind! How dare He speak to one particular generation and forgot the rest of us!

Really?

This first rider, represents a deceptive power masquerading as Christ. Outwardly it appears "Christians", but in reality it will be, like the other three riders to follow, a force for evil and destruction. Having a "form of Godliness", but denying the power thereof.

Remember when Paul said: "A lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming"? (2 Thess, 2:8) His influence over humanity will be "according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception......." (verses 9-10).

Keep in mind that Satan, is often called the "great deceiver." For everything that God does, he has a counterfeit. Counterfeit religion, counterfeit church, counterfeit system, counterfeit kingdom............in which we are living. He wants to be God. Hence................the rider of the white horse that was given a crown, for he is......... the prince to come.

The second seal.........Conflict on Earth

3. When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, "Come and see."
4. "And another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword. (Rev. 6:3-4)
