The First Seal – The White Horse

First Seal -2

from Google Images

As we enter chapter six of the Apocalypse, it almost seems as though we are projected elsewhere to a scene where four horsemen are sent to the earth to wield destruction, according to their specific purposes. However, John is still in the Throne Room, and still in the Most Holy Place. The Lamb is still on the throne, as he removes the seals of the book. Moreover, we need to keep in mind that the seals are probably not literal seals. For example, if the book were sealed on the outside with seven literal seals, one would be unable to open the book at all until the seventh seal was removed.

One thing we must keep in mind as we read Matthew 24[1] is that we are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets – Jesus Christ, himself, being the chief cornerstone (Ephesians 2:20). The point is: we are not built upon the foundation of Martin Luther, John Wesley, John Calvin, or any other man or group of men, however mightily they may have been used of God. These latter at best comment upon God’s word, while the apostles and prophets spoke the very words of God. They alone were moved of the Spirit to write down what God said. Other religious figures have their place within the Church, but their place is not the foundation upon which we rest. Read the rest of this entry »
