On Sunday, Brother David Conrades continued his series of messages from Revelation. In Chapter 6, Jesus opens a book with seven seals, and John records the scene for us in vivid images.

The first seal is the seal of deception, Brother David said. When Jesus opens it, the antichrist rides a white horse, an appearance of purity. The antichrist bringing only a bow is a deception. In John 2, Jesus says many antichrists will come first, Brother David said, naming David Coresh and Jim Jones.

The second seal reveals war and bloodshed when the antichrist realizes deception will not be enough. The antichrist will find people willing to use the world’s nuclear arsenal.

The third seal is the seal of despair, Brother David said. The black horse represents sadness, gloom, despair, and the rationing of food. In some parts of the world, half of the preschool children are already undernourished, and 27 people starve to death every day.

The fourth seal is the seal of death, Brother David said. The pale horse represents dead and decaying flesh. A third of the world will be given over to the antichrist.

You can’t fight the antichrist yourself, Brother David said. Your only hope is in the Lamb of God. As Christians, we have nothing to fear.
