Many ask me who the white horse rider is in the first seal judgment of the tribulation, Christ or antichrist. (Rev.6:1) And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, Come. (2) And I saw, and behold, a white horse, and he that sat thereon had a bow; and there was given unto him a crown: and he came forth conquering, and to conquer. The white horse rider here is neither Christ nor antichrist but Christ in a modern day body of believers called the man-child. Just as Jesus came in the beginning of the first 3-1/2 years of the disciple's tribulation; so the man-child will come at the beginning of the first 3-1/2 years of the end time tribulation. Why must this be the first seal judgment? (1Pet.4:17) For the time [is come] for judgment to begin at the house of God: and if [it begin] first at us, what [shall be] the end of them that obey not the gospel of God? Just as the man-child Jesus brought the unleavened bread of the truth, confirmed with signs and wonders, which made Israel and her leaders responsible to repent or be judged, so it will be with the end time man-child and spiritual Israel. (Jn.9:39) And Jesus said, For judgment came I into this world, that they that see not may see; and that they that see may become blind. Simeon prophesied that the man-child Jesus would cause both the reprobation of some and the grafting in of others. (Lk.2:34)...Behold, this [child] is set for the falling and the rising of many in Israel; and for a sign which is spoken against. Jesus was also a "sign" that the end time man-child would bring the same judgment. As it was with Jesus and Judaism, the man-child will be "spoken against" by the apostate "Christians". Moses as man-child brought the Law, which made the rebels responsible and brought judgment. (Rom.4:15) [F]or the law worketh wrath; but where there is no law, neither is there transgression.
What does the "white horse" represent? As the mind of man uses his body as a beast of burden to do his work, so the horse is harnessed as a beast of burden to do his work. The horse represents the body or beast. (Ps.147:10) He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: He taketh no pleasure in the legs of a man. To ride a white horse symbolizes to completely harness the strength of your body or beast to do righteous work. Overcomers ride white horses because their body is in submission to the spiritual man who submits to the Holy Spirit. Those who walk by faith do not give any authority to the mind of the flesh to rule but instead rule over it. Although the man-child will be the First-fruits of the white horse riders in our day, the elect of the woman will also follow their Lord on white horses to finish off the judgment after the tribulation. (Rev.19:11) And I saw the heaven opened; and behold, a white horse, and he that sat thereon called Faithful and True; and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. ... (14) And the armies which are in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white [and] pure.
Just as the latter rain outpouring of the Spirit on the man-child will harness his body as a white horse; so in the rest of the seal judgments evil spirits will ride upon the beast of the flesh of men to bring these curses upon the earth. The difference between the man-child and the rest of the riders is that he is the one who looses these judgments like Jesus, Moses, Jeremiah, etc., did. (Rev.6:3) And when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, Come. (4) And another [horse] came forth, a red horse: and to him that sat thereon it was given to take peace from the earth, and that they should slay one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. (5) And when he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, Come. And I saw, and behold, a black horse; and he that sat thereon had a balance in his hand. (6) And I heard as it were a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, A measure of wheat for a shilling, and three measures of barley for a shilling (famine); and the oil and the wine hurt thou not. (7) And when he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, Come. (8) And I saw, and behold, a pale horse: and he that sat upon him, his name was Death; and Hades followed with him. And there was given unto them authority over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with famine, and with death, and by the wild beasts of the earth. Remember that Jesus said, "I have given you authority...over all the power of the enemy". Authority in this case is the right to use the power of the demons. The man-child will exercise "authority" and pass it on to the woman to bring the same "sword", "famine", and "death" to those who return evil for good.
Jeremiah was a type of the man-child who loosed the judgments to come. (Jer.18:20) Shall evil be recompensed for good? for they have digged a pit for my soul. Remember how I stood before thee to speak good for them, to turn away thy wrath from them. (21) Therefore deliver up their children to the famine, and give them over to the power of the sword; and let their wives become childless, and widows; and let their men be slain of death, [and] their young men smitten of the sword in battle. Moses and Samuel represent the same type of the man-child whose words and teachings to the woman will bring forth the same judgments. (15:1) Then said Lord unto me, Though Moses and Samuel stood before me, yet my mind would not be toward this people: cast them out of my sight, and let them go forth. (2) And it shall come to pass, when they say unto thee, Whither shall we go forth? then thou shalt tell them, Thus saith Lord: Such as are for death, to death; and such as are for the sword, to the sword; and such as are for the famine, to the famine; and such as are for captivity, to captivity.
Jesus in His First-fruits man-child will send forth the disciples with the Word of God to bring the above judgments on the world. (Rev.6:2) And I saw, and behold, a white horse, and he that sat thereon had a bow; and there was given unto him a crown: and he came forth conquering, and to conquer. Notice that He has "a bow" but no arrows, meaning they have been sent forth. "Apostle" means "one sent forth". As Jesus was from Judah and sent forth His twelve apostles and then the seventy disciples, so the man-child is spiritually a corporate body from Judah and will be the bow that sends forth these "arrows". (Zech.9:13) For I have bent Judah for me, I have filled the bow with Ephraim (Ephraim was called in Hebrew the "fullness of nations" [Gentiles] in Genesis 48:19 and represents the woman or Church of all nations.); and I will stir up thy sons, O Zion, against thy sons, O Greece (beast kingdom), and will make thee as the sword of a mighty man. (14) And Lord shall be seen over them; and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning.... (15) Lord of hosts will defend them; and they shall devour. As Jesus' disciples went forth to conquer the mind of the beast that ruled over the elect of God, so will the man-child's disciples.
(Ps.127:3) Lo, children are a heritage of Lord; [And] the fruit of the womb is [his] reward. (4) As arrows in the hand of a mighty man, So are the children of youth. Jesus' disciples, whom He sent out like arrows, were His "children of youth" for He has had many since then. He called His disciples "children" (Jn.13:33; 21:5). In Isaiah's prophecy of the coming of Jesus as Emanuel He called His disciples His "children" (Isa.7:14; 8:16,18). The worldwide man-child will send forth the disciple arrows to conquer the flesh, the beast, and the devil. (Ps.127:5) Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: They shall not be put to shame, When they speak with their enemies in the gate. The disciple arrows will go forth to conquer the "enemies in the gate" of the kingdom with the spoken Word. Jesus, Who was the Light and called His disciples "sons of light" (Jn.12:36), also said that the light would bring judgment when men denied it. (Jn.3:19) And this is the judgment, that the light is come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil. The man-child and the disciple arrows will once more bring the light of truth, which will judge the world. This judgment will begin at the house of God and spread outwards. As it was with Jesus, those who reject the light will be reprobated while those who accept it will be the "sons of light". The white horse rider will bring truth, which is the foundation for all judgment. Remember that Moses, who was the white horse rider of his day, brought all the judgments on Egypt. As a type of the man-child he led all the other colored judgment horses of Revelation 6. In her book, Prepare For The Winds Of Change II, chapter 1, Nita Johnson, relates her vision describing the white horse rider's ministry. You will notice that it is the Word that goes forth from the anointed teachers of the end times, as they call the elect out of Babylon, that brings judgment or delivers from it. My notes are in parenthesis.
"On January 10, 1990, I was granted a visitation by an angel. When I first saw this majestic being, I was awe-struck by his beauty, his power, and his obvious authority. He was dressed in a white garb resembling an old Roman military uniform. His belt and type of breastplate were of gold. His whole appearance seemed to glow with the glow of heaven itself. He was riding an equally beautiful and powerful white war-horse. Both horse and rider were very large. The horse was much larger than any horse you and I would ever have occasion to see here on earth. It was indeed obvious that this incredible being was one of God's higher-ranking dignitaries. (The great size implies a corporate body.)
These anointed Apostolic teachers will live both "behind the veil" in the presence of God and in the seen realm. They will be able to say as the man-child Jesus did, I speak the things which I have seen with [my] Father, for He and His wisdom will be in them.
