I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder,“Come!” I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest. - Revelation 6:1-2
Horses have always been the symbol of war and conquest. I see in this first seal that opens and reveals insights about future events - that while this world is at war spiritually, you and your word and your people are in the battle to conquer with the truth about your grace that leads many to righteousness. We are in a battle but we have your weapons. Souls are being saved and many who look defeated (like the thief who died next to you/ will be saved by the white horse at the very end. You are telling us that you and the good you bring will be with us in battle until the end. With your ever present help, we will fight on until your angel blows the trumpet for the end to come. It give us hope that helps us keep telling your story. Harden us in our resolve to saddle up and spread the word.

We live in a war zone between God and Satan. By grace we have been adopted to the right team.
