(Rev 6:1,2)  And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.



(Rev 6:1,2)  And I saw [Gk: considered] when the Lamb [of God] opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder [strongly commanding my attention], one of the four beasts [Gk: zoon; a live thing, an animal] [i.e., a heavenly creature] saying, Come and see [a present tense imperative command]. And I saw [Gk: perceived, understood] [for correct understanding of this counterfeit Christ (The Antichrist), contrast Rev 19:11-16 which depicts the true Christ and His coming], and behold a white horse [of great power]: and he that sat on him [is The Antichrist that with the reins (laws) controls and directs the horse (great power) of strong delusion] had a bow [but no arrows, vs. “a sharp sword Rev 19:15]; and a crown [vs. “many crowns” Rev 19:12] was given unto him: and he went forth conquering [present tense; (the unsaved)], and to conquer [future tense; (the unsaved)].

1.       Commentary: “a white horse” = The horse is a biblical symbol of strength and power (ref: the secular adage: “He is strong as a horse.”). This particular horse appears to be white, the biblical color of purity and righteousness, but the white color is just a phony bogus counterfeit disguise (as is the rider), covering over and concealing the thick black darkness of the great power of “strong delusion” 2 Thes 2:11.

2.       (2 Cor 4:3,4)  But if our gospel be hid [Gk: covered up], it is hid [Gk: covered up] to them that are lost [unsaved]: In whom the god of this world [Satan, the father of lies: John 8:44] hath [figuratively] blinded the minds [literally deluded the minds, for one cannot “blind” the mind] of them which believe not, lest the light [Gk: illumination] of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image [Gk: likeness] of God [to see an “image” correctly requires un-obscured sight], should shine [Gk: to beam forth] unto them.

a.       blinded = Gk: to make blind, (figuratively) to obscure /// opaque (as if smoky) /// to envelop with smoke, (figuratively) to inflate with self conceit: - high-minded, be lifted up with pride, be proud /// to make a smoke, slowly consume without flame: - smoke.

3.       Commentary: The Antichrist, although greatly troubling to us (Great Tribulation), is not a real threat, a mind changer, to the saved minds of confessing Christians who dwell upon the “good ground” of fruitful understanding. However, The Antichrist represents a definite threat, a definite mind changer (hmmm, who was it that campaigned upon the promise of bringing us “change”?) to the minds of unsaved nominal professing Christians who dwell “by the way side,” on “stony places,” and “among the thorns” (Mat 13:1-23). And The Antichrist is a definite mind changer to the minds of the remaining unsaved population of the world.

4.       Commentary: The Antichrist, armed with and represented by the bent bow, beguiles the attention (ref: “The serpent hath beguiled me” Gen 3:13; bends the bow, i.e., bends the law – bends the light) of the unsaved population, bending them away from the straight rod of the Law (Psa 2:9; Rev 2:27; 12;5; 19:15), bending them away from the straight beaming rays of the light (illumination) of the Truth (bending the Light), blinding them first into helplessness, and then into slavery, deceiving them thoroughly. May we mention that bent light (Light) is no light at all. “A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.” (Gal 5:9).

5.       Commentary: However, The Antichrist is first and foremost “self-delusional,” a psychological condition prominent in narcissistic personalities, i.e., the inordinate admiration of oneself. Delusion and its synonyms of deception and deceit are an immeasurably strong evil power. Delusion changes people the same way as Truth changes people. Self-delusion springs from an evil foundation (from an evil heart) of pride. Self-delusion (an incorrect erroneous wrong inaccurate false view of oneself) causes the self-deluded spirit or person to look upon other spirits or persons through distorted lenses. Thus, the self-deluded one will incorrectly internalize all of his external information and assessments to coordinate with his own established delusional structural parameters; and concurrently, the self-deluded one will generate and externalize his delusional thoughts in the articulated format of words and actions directed to and upon others.

a.       narcissism = Dict: self love; erotic [Sigmund Freud’s influence] gratification derived from admiration of one’s own physical or mental attributes; a normal condition at the infantile level of personality development.



(Isa 14:11-17)  Thy pomp [Heb: pride] is brought down to the grave, and the noise [Heb: sound /// to make a loud noise] of thy viols [music; this word in Hebrew, having many negative connotations]: the worm [Heb: in the sense of breeding; a maggot] is spread under thee, and the worms [Heb: maggots (as voracious)] cover thee [instead of my (i.e., God’s) glorious covering which you have gone out from under]. How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down [Heb: to fell a tree: cut asunder] [i.e., forcibly humbled] to the ground, which didst weaken the nations [Lucifer’s externalized self-delusion was vented as strong delusion upon the nations (men); it was so strong that a third of the angels in Heaven believed him (were deluded)]! For thou hast said in thine heart [i.e., an evil heart is the foundation of self-delusion], I will ascend into heaven [self-delusion], I will exalt my throne above the stars of God [self-delusion]: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north [self-delusion]: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds [self-delusion]; I will be like the most High [the ultimate self-delusion]. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit [to the utter destruction of self-delusion, by God]. They that see thee [other fallen angels/fallen men whom he has led] shall narrowly [sharply] look upon thee, and consider thee [thoroughly think about thee], saying, Is this the man [Lucifer/Satan, who last reigned in the then current body of The Antichrist] that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof [consequences of strong delusion]; that opened not the house of his prisoners?

  1. pomp = Heb: arrogancy, excellency, majesty, pride, proud, swelling /// to mount up; hence in general to rise, (figuratively) be majestic: - gloriously, grow up, increase, be risen, triumph.
  2. viols = Heb: a lyre (as having a body of like form): psaltery /// to wilt; generally to fall away, fail, faint; figuratively to be foolish or (morally) wicked; causatively to despise, disgrace: - disgrace, dishonour, lightly esteem, fade (away, -ing), fall (down, -ling, off), do foolishly, come to nought, X surely, make vile, wither.
  3. Commentary: “his prisoners” = refers to those millions of minds (souls) who were once held prisoners that he has already destroyed, and other millions of minds (souls) that he currently holds captive with strong delusion, all the latter effected through his successive reigns in each successive antichrist leader, i.e., The Antichrist of each ‘generation.’
