God is Thought. The brightness of our revelations depends upon the correctness of our doctrines, our building blocks, our Godly Thoughts laid one upon another, ascending into the mind of Christ.



(Mat 24:1,2)  And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple [“ye are the temple of God” 1 Cor 3:16]: and his disciples [Gk: learners, pupils (students)] came to him for to shew him the buildings [Gk: architecture, structure] [i.e., what man has constructed] of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another [(hard) stones are a Biblical symbol of men, built up (pride)], that shall not be thrown down [Gk: demolished: destroyed, dissolved].



(Mat 24:3-5)  And as he sat upon the mount [Gk: mountain] of Olives [olives symbolize men; Jesus was expressing dominion over all mankind], the disciples came unto him privately [i.e., seeking revelations], saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world [Gk: aion; this world]? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed [Gk: beware] that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ [Gk: anointed, the Messiah (the expected deliverer)]; and shall deceive many.

1.    deceive = Gk: to cause (you) to roam (from safety, truth, or virtue): go astray, err, (be) seduced, wander, be out of the way.

2.    (Rev 6:1,2)  And I saw [(one witness)] when the Lamb [Christ Jesus] opened [released the contents of] one of the seals [Gk: a signet (as fencing in) /// to fence in or inclose, to block up; fig. to silence], and I heard [(the second witness)], as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts [Gk: animals] saying, Come and see [a command for “now”]. (Rev 6:2)  And I saw, and behold a white horse [a]: and he that sat on him [the rider-controller] had a bow [versus “a sharp sword” Rev 19:15]; and a crown [versus “many crowns” Rev 19:12] was given unto him: and [astonishingly] he went forth conquering [Gk: subduing: overcoming, prevailing] [present tense], and to conquer [future tense].

a.     Commentary: “a white horse” = white is a Biblical symbol of innocence and truth, and a horse is a Biblical symbol of great power; however, the remainder of this verse (Rev 6:2) proves this beast to be a symbol of the deceptive power of “strong delusion” (propaganda) under the control (reins) of the rider who himself is a deceiver, an impersonator, an imposter, and a counterfeit Christ Savior.



(Mat 24:6-8)  And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars [the second seal]: see that ye be not troubled [Gk: frightened]: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation [country or race, against country or race], and kingdom against kingdom [rule or realm against rule or realm] [i.e., DIVISION - WARS]: and there shall be famines [Gk: scarcity of food: hunger] [the third seal], and pestilences [Gk: plagues, diseases] [deadly sickness], and earthquakes [Gk: commotions] [riots, revolutions], in divers [many] places. All these are the beginning of sorrows [Gk: pangs or throes, especially of childbirth: pain, travail].

1.    (Rev 6:3,4)  And when he [Jesus] had opened [released the contents of] the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see [a command for “now”]. And there went out another horse that was red [the color of blood]: and power was given [by Satan, “the god of this world (Gk: aion)” 2 Cor 4:4] to him [the antichrist deceiver] that sat thereon [the red horse of war] to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill [Gk: butcher or slaughter] one another [“and the LORD set every man's sword against his fellow” Judg 7:22]: and there was given unto him a great sword.

2.    (Rev 6:5,6)  And when he had opened [released the contents of] the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see [a command for “now”]. And I beheld, and lo a black [i.e., starvation] horse; and he [the antichrist deceiver] that sat on [controlled] him had a pair of balances [weighting scales] in his hand [under his control]. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat [healthy food sufficient for a man] for a penny [a day’s wages], and three measures of barley [standard animal fare and much less healthy food for a man] for a penny [a day’s wages]; and see thou hurt not [take not of] the oil and the wine [premium expensive foods (also symbols of the Holy Spirit)].



3.    (Rev 6:7,8)  And when he had opened [released the contents of] the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see [a command for “now”]. And I looked, and behold a pale [Gk: greenish] [i.e., gangrene] horse: and his name [the antichrist deceiver] that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him [exclusively for the unsaved. Why?]. And power was given unto them [the antichrists] over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword [the second seal], and with hunger [the third seal], and with death [the fourth seal], and with the beasts [Gk: dangerous animals: venomous, wild beasts] of the earth.  

a.     Commentary: Significantly, we may note that Jesus did not include a description of the fourth seal of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse in Matthew 24:1-7, but He did summarize the first three seals in verse 24:8 as “All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Why did Jesus exclude a description of the fourth seal from His Matthew mention and summary to His disciples? Answer: because the disciples of Jesus Christ will not suffer Hell, and therefore we will not be here to experience the evils of this seal.





(2 Thes 2:8-12) And then shall that Wicked [Gk: lawless] [rider] be revealed [Gk: to take off the cover, disclosed], whom the Lord [Jesus Christ] shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming [“in flaming fire” (2 Thes 1:8)]: Even him [the antichrist], whose coming is after the working of [after the bidding of] Satan [Gk: the accuser, the devil] with all [of Satan’s] power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness [Gk: delusions] of [the] unrighteousness [Gk: injustice; moral wrongfulness] in them that perish [Gk: are fully destroyed: die]; because they received not the love of the truth [i.e., Jesus Christ (John 14:6)], that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie [Gk: falsehood: lying]: That they all might be damned [Gk: condemned, punished] who believed not the truth [Jesus Christ], but had pleasure in unrighteousness [Gk: injustice; moral wrongfulness].
