The Green Horse of Revelation & Islam


The rise of Islam coupled with the upheaval in Egypt, Libya, and other Muslim countries should alert us that our world is changing and not for the better. When we look at Iran's determination to pursue nuclear weapons, their hatred toward Israel and the gathering problems from Syria and Lebanon toward Israel, we know we are headed to a major war in the Middle East. Sadly, the Bible tells us that it will include the first release of nuclear weapons since World War II as we are told in Isaiah 17 that Damascus Syria will be turned into a heap of ruins in one evening by the children of Israel. And that event will get the world's attention and cause Egypt to tremble (Is. 19:17).

There is a video circulating the internet that shows a ghost-like green horse with a rider on it supposedly caught by an MSNBC television camera as they filmed the riots in Egypt.

And who or what is the pale horse of Revelation 6:8 and is it riding on the earth now? The answers are clear when we look at the facts of Scripture and current events.
