Listener Feedback &
I have just a few
thoughts and questions when you have the time on the Revelation
series. By the way I have been having extreme dreams during the
night, I just can’t get the things we discuss out of my head. I have
put together a little flow chart of what we have discussed. This
helps me visualize the seven seals better. By no way is it complete
since we are just getting into the fifth seal.
That is intense, when you are dreaming about the message! A flow
chart is a great idea. Please share that with me when it is
One item has been nagging me for quite sometime and that is: of all
the riders the white horse rider is the only one that is a person.
Why is that? Why would Yah have the first seal be a person
(forerunner) and still be called a rider?
He does stuff like that so that you can't create a systematic code
to decipher prophecy with your natural mind. You can only get it by
the Holy Spirit illuminating the Scriptures. In this case the
victorious rider with a bow is from the Psalms and is the
friend-of-the-Bridegroom/forerunner, an actual person [Psalm
45/Tsiyon Program #131]. The other riders have no verses identifying them
as actual persons. In fact, we are told the 4th rider is 'Death'
personified - not therefore an actual person at all. The riders of
seals 2 and 3 are not named as specific persons anywhere in
Scripture since they too are figurative.
I looked for the Hebrew definition of the number four then I looked
for the definition of horsemen and then I went to Genesis to recall
what Yah created on the fourth day. The number four is creation of
the world in this time, which makes sense because Yah is dealing
with creation and how the world is at the present time. The four
horsemen are dealing with creation in some form. In Genesis Yah made
the distinction between evening and morning …..darkness and light. I
see the four horsemen doing the same distinguishing between light
Very interesting study ..good job!
Question, is horseman the right translation in revelation or should
it be charioteer? It may not make a difference as pertaining to what
they do but in my mind a charioteer is more of a warrior type than a
horseman or a man riding a horse. But then again the scriptures
mention “He who sat on it, or one who sat on it…etc." So yes I
understand "sat" but in Hebrew could that sat be really sat in? Just
something in my head.
The word is 'hippos' which means horse. They are
definitely riding horses. The Greek word for chariot is harmah. This
word is not in the Revelation verses.
Okay, okay one more then I am done for now. What is your best answer
to why the angels in Revelation are not named and are just
mentioned as angels?
The book is called "Revelation" for a reason. It is written this way
so the "good guys" will get the answers but the "bad guys" won't get
Daniel 12:9 He said, Go your way, Daniel; for the words are shut up
and sealed until the time of the end.
10 Many shall purify themselves, and make themselves white, and be
refined; but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked
shall understand; but those who are wise shall understand.
illiteracy has become the norm generally, it is definitely NOT the
norm among Tsiyon listeners! Feedback like that above tells us that
Tsiyon listeners are paying attention to the Word. We applaud you
taking a different path from the world and seeking after His truth.
In our current 'fifth seal' programs we are coming to grips with the
fact that holding to the Word and our testimony of our Messiah can
and will bring the hatred of the world upon us. We must learn to
accept that honor of being hated for His Name's sake, even in places
like the USA where we have not had much persecution in the past.
Things are changing. Our program this week, and 400+ pages of
downloads that go with it, demonstrate how this can and will happen,
even in the USA. We pray for you, that as you consider this
information you will be strengthened in your inner man to grasp the
fullness of your destiny in the midst of a darkening world, here, at
the end of the age.
Blessings to you
and yours in Messiah's mighty Name.
