The Horses of Zechariah 6

By Pastor F. M. Riley,  May 7, 2010

I turned, and lifted up my eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came 4 chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass.
In the first chariot were red horses; and in the second chariot black horses;
And in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot were appaloosa (dappled, grizzled) and bay horses.

Then I answered and said unto the angel that talked with me, What are these, my Lord?
And the angel answered and said unto me, These are the four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth.

The black horses which are therein go forth into the north country
The white go forth after them
The appaloosas go forth toward the south country.
Zechariah 6:1-8

As a young minister the visions given to the Prophet Zechariah were mystifying to me.
No matter how many times I read them, I just couldn’t seem to make sense of them.
At the time I didn’t realize just how prophetic they were, and that Bible prophecy always has an “appointed time” to be “unsealed” and fulfilled, Daniel 12:4.

Recently a dear brother wrote me inquiring about the connection between these horses in Zechariah 6 and the “white horse” in Revelation 6.
By God’s grace I was able to answer his question, but as I answered him I felt the definite leadership of the Lord to place the answers into a Bible study to share with others of God’s people and to glorify my precious Lord.
People everywhere are in desperate need of the truth of God’s Word today.

The Time Elements of Bible Prophecy

Any serious student of Bible prophecy ought to know that every prophecy in God’s inspired Word has a certain time for that prophecy to be fulfilled.
All Bible prophecy DOES NOT apply strictly to “the end of the age.”

God’s inspired Word contains prophecies that deal with every period of time throughout human history.
The ancient Jews had prophecies dealing with them.  Many Old Testament prophecies were fulfilled at the birth (first coming) of Christ Jesus the Messiah.

We who are true believers know that there are many “end-time” prophecies yet to be fulfilled.

There are prophecies in God’s Word which were meant to be fulfilled during the very time in which we are living today.
It is my strong conviction that Zechariah 6:1-8 is just such a prophecy.

Zechariah’s Vision of the 4 Chariots
In this vision the Prophet Zechariah is shown 4 chariots emerging from between two mounains.
Each of the four chariots were pulled by horses [plural], with each chariot being pulled by horses of a color peculiar to that chariot.

Ancient chariots were built of varying sizes and shapes, depending on their intended use.
But they all had one primary purpose, and that was to haul a load.
The chariot might be designed to transport only one person, but it might also be designed to transport many people.
Or, a chariot might be designed to transport one or two people plus a load of something.
In this case I believe the context implies that each chariot is transporting a load of something to be released in the particular area to which the horses are directed.

The mountains from which these chariots emerge are explicitly stated to be mountains of brass.
Brass [or bronze] as used in God’s Word always invariably represents Judgment.

Compare Revelation 1:15
So the very purpose for which these chariots and horses are being sent forth is to bring JUDGMENT upon those areas of the earth to which they are sent.

Notice that it is “horses,” not “horse.”  It is plural rather than singular.
The exact number of horses is not given in the text.  Rather, only that there were four chariots pulled by the horses.
Some ancient chariots could be pulled by only one horse, depending on the design, weight, and purpose.
But there were chariots which could have as many as ten or even more horses pulling them.
The context makes it clear that there was obviously at least two horses pulling each chariot and there could have been many more.

The inspired Word definitely emphasizes the color of the horses pulling the four chariots.
Therefore the color is obviously important to the message being conveyed in the vision.

The red horses
Red is almost always the color in God’s Word which symbolizes war, blood, bloodshed.
Even the precious blood of Christ was shed in the war between God and Satan, as our wonderful Savior died to rescue our souls from the clutches of Satan.
Compare Revelation 6:3-4

The black horses…….Black is the color in God’s Word which symbolizes famine; hunger; starvation; grievous times.
Compare Revelation 6:5-6

The white horses
White is the color in God’s Word which symbolizes purity; holiness; righteousness; Godliness; peace.
Compare Matthew 17:2, Revelation 1:14, 3:4-5, 7:9-14, 19:8 and 19:11-14

The grizzled and bay horses
The word grizzled in this passage literally means spotted or dappled.
The word “bay” is actually an adjective in this verse describing the grizzled horses.  The word literally means strong.
This color in God’s Word is used to symbolize DEATH.
Compare Song of Solomon 8:6 and Revelation 6:7-8.

The Relevancy of this Vision

I want to begin this exposition with the breakup of the USSR; the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic which occurred in December of 1991.

How could this event not have been Scripturally significant in view of the fact that almost the entire northern part of Europe and part of Asia,
along with most of eastern Europe, had been under the “iron yoke” of Communism for 70 years?  
During all that time atheism was the official policy of the Communist government.
All preachers, missionaries, and missionary ministries were barred from entering or ministering in the Soviet Union.
The Iron Curtain prevented any and all evangelism of millions of people who were citizens of the Soviet Empire.
Those Christian believers on the inside were often imprisoned, persecuted, and sometimes murdered in cold blood
for sharing the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ with others.  But this whole picture began to change in 1987.

In 1987 turmoil began breaking out into the open throughout the entire Communist world.  The Soviet Union was BROKE - economically!
This is what invariably ALWAYS HAPPENS to a nation under the leadership of a Socialist or Communist government.
In 1987 the Russian people were literally starving to death.
Many of them were working in the government factories and on government farms without even being paid,
yet they continued to work with the “hope” that sometime things would get better and they would receive their back pay.
There were even news reports leaking out of the Soviet Union of people resorting to cannibalism to survive.

Zechariah 6 - The black horses go forth into the north country carrying famine, starvation, and grevious times.
Almighty God WILL NOT be mocked!  For 70 years the Communist rulers of the Soviet Union had thumbed their noses in the face of God,
but the Almighty wasn’t overlooking any of it.  Someone once wrote,
“The mills of God grind slowly, but they grind exceedingly fine!”

In 1987 Ronald Reagan was President of the United States and Mikhail Gorbachev was ruler of the Soviet Union.
President Reagan made public speeches urging Gorbachev to “tear down the wall.”
While Reagan was referring to the Berlin Wall dividing Germany, that very year Gorbachev declared glasnost,
and published his book entitled “Perestroika” [openness], and the Soviet Union began to crumble.

Country after country in the Soviet Union began to rebel against the economic policies of the Kremlin government and pull out of the Soviet Union.
During 1988, 89, 90, and 91 there was nothing but constant turmoil in the Soviet Union and Europe.
Finally, on December 26, 1991, Mikhail Gorbachev resigned and the Soviet Union ceased to exist.  
What a wonderful “Christmas present” for the enslaved people of Russia and eastern Europe.  Glory to God!

Then the white horses began to go forth after the black horses.
The doors to the countries in the former Soviet Union were thrown wide open.
Democracy, business, capitalism, money, and food, began pouring into those countries.  But that wasn’t all!
Missionaries, preachers, Bible teachers, Christian ministries, Bibles, and Christian literature began flooding into those countries,
and the greatest soul saving revival in the twentieth century began spreading like wildfire.
Literally thousands and thousands of people came to know the Lord in the next few years.

These white horses that go toward the north country have quieted My Spirit in the north country.  Zech 6:8
In other words, for at least a time the Lord’s anger against Communism in the former Soviet Union was stayed.
But God’s judgment [black horses] against Russia and Communism is not over.
You can read the sequel to this prophecy in Ezekiel 39.  Is this clear enough?

But then what happened next?
At almost the same time this great revival of truth and salvation was going on in the countries of the former Soviet Union,
the grizzled horses were pulling their chariot filled with death toward the south country.

Is it then just coincidence that about 1990-91 economic disaster began to occur all across the continent of Africa [the south country]?
ISLAM, the damnable Muslim religion, began stirring again in Africa, overthrowing and seeking to overthrow the legitimate governments of various African nations.
They are still at it, burning, looting, robbing, raping, and murdering, seeking to impose their religion from hell and  their
wicked Sharia Law on the African people no matter how many innocent people they have to murder to accomplish their goal.    

This has caused so much turmoil, upheaval, and unrest in Africa that in many countries of Africa the fields go untilled,
the crops are not planted, businesses have collapsed, factories have closed, and the economy of
nation after nation has collapsed or is in the process of collapsing right now.

Several months ago I was sent an Economic Report on the crisis in Africa.
It was reported that a loaf of bread in one African country under the rule of an ignorant self-proclaimed Communist despot now costs a day’s wages.
This is most certainly a preview of the Tribulation period to come, Revelation 6:5-6

Yes, I know these are third world countries and their wage scale and standard of living in no way measures up to ours here in the United States.
But it is also true that some of these African nations have 85% unemployment and their people are literally living off the land.
Is this a preview of what’s coming to America?  God have mercy!

The entire weather pattern across Africa has appeared to change over these past 20 years.  
Many nations in Africa have suffered severe drouth, causing famine and starvation, or are being flooded with torrential rains and severe storms.  
The average life span of adult males in Africa today is 45 years of age.  Think about this!  

There are many devoted Christian believers in Africa. I personally correspond with a number of such dear believers via email.
Folks, the grizzled horses chariot of death is stalking across the continent of Africa today in exact fulfillment of  Zechariah.

At this same time the bay horses [same as the grizzled, this word bay means strong] went forth, and sought [ask permission] to go that they might walk to and fro through the earth:  and He said,  
Get you hence, walk to and fro through the earth.  So they walked to and fro through the earth.

The Lord Himself said, “But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be,” Matthew 24:37.  
How was it in the days of Noah which preceded the judgment of the flood?  Read Genesis 6:5 and 6:11-13.

Is it then just coincidence that in the past 20 years since 1990, the crime rate in this country [and all over the earth] has soared beyond anything we have ever known previously?
Is it just coincidence that in these past 20 years dozens of new diseases and physical ailments have suddenly appeared to plague mankind?
Is it just coincidence that in these past 20 years violence has soared in marriages, breaking apart homes and families, with brutality,  rampant divorce, and murder becoming commonplace?
Is it just coincidence that over these past 20 years “terrorism” has become an everyday event reported on the news; now so common that when it is reported most folks hardly even pay attention to the reports?

Dear readers, whether some want to believe it or not, the bay horses pulling their chariot of death are walking to and fro through the earth today, in exact fulfillment of this vision given to Zechariah so many centuries ago.  God have mercy!

The Relevancy of Psalm 90

In this study I have set forth an exposition of Zechariah 6:1-8, pointing out how this vision given to Zechariah so many centuries ago is in complete harmony with world events which have occurred over the past twenty years.  Coincidence?

But before I close this study I want to reinforce my exposition with an inspired statement in God’s Word which is commonly overlooked or ignored.

Many of our readers are familiar with the concept that the Psalms correlates with the years of the 20th and 21st centuries.
In other words, for those readers who are not familiar with this concept, Psalm 1 correlates with 1901, Psalm 2 with 1902, Psalm 3 with 1903, etc.
Much has been written about this correlation since 1987, the year that Pastor J. R. Church of Prophecy in the News first published his book entitled Hidden Prophecies in the Psalms.
It is an established truth that can be proven to anyone with an open mind and an honest desire to seriously examine the documented evidence set forth in the Psalms.

With this truth then in mind turn to Psalm 90 which correlates with 1990.

In Psalm 90:1 the inspired writer, speaking for the Jewish remnant, explicitly declares that the Lord “…hast been our dwelling place in all [previous] generations.”
In the next verse he acknowledges the existence of God from eternity past to eternity future.  
In other words, God has been the Almighty from even before the creation of the earth in eternity past, has continued to be the Almighty all the way through human history, and will continue to be Almighty God even into the eternal age predicted to come in Revelation 21 – 22.  
Almighty God is now and always has been in charge, whether wicked men want to believe it or not.  Glory to God!

But then in 90:3 the inspired Psalmist makes a statement which many of God’s people today skim over lightly without ever grasping the prophetic importance of the statement,
“Thou turnest man [mankind; humanity] to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.”

I have pointed out throughout this study that the horses of Zechariah 6:1-8,
wreaking famine and death upon mankind, began to go forth in and around the time of the collapse of the Soviet Union.
In other words, these horses began to go forth in approximately 1990, perfectly correlating with the emphatic statement made in
verse 3 of  this 90th Psalm, and the events which have occurred in the world over the past 20 years.
A person would have to be deaf, dumb, blind and ignorant not to be aware of all the catastrophe’s which have occurred in nation after nation all over the world in the past 20 years.
1990 was indeed an important year in human history.  It marked the exact  year when the Lord God of Heaven began turning mankind “to destruction,” and appealing for “the children of men” to “return” to Him.    

May God bless this message to the heart of every reader is my prayer.

Permission is granted to any true believer or Bible believing Christian ministry to reproduce this study to share with others.

These are appaloosa Percheron draft horses. .
I would not take as word of GOD that bay means strong

I agree with much of the above, but not all of it.
So much is open to interpretation.

Your comments are welcome.

RED HORSE of Revelation 6
The BEASTS of Revelation 13

4 horsemen depicting HELL following Death.
Communism hammer-sickle and Islamic crescent

RED HORSE of Revelation 6
The BEASTS of Revelation 13

Lets take a BRIEF look at the Revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ to John on Patmos.
Chapter 1 promises a BLESSING to all who read or hear.

A red horse rider was granted to take peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another and a great sword was given to him.

The Death pale, ashen (green) horse had Hell following him.  Together they killed 1/4 of the population of Earth
with sword and with famine and with pestilence, plague, diseases and by the wild beasts of the earth.
4 horses of the Apocalypse, Revelation 6  -   http://nasb.scripturetext.com/revelation/6.htm

Then another horse came out, a fiery RED one.
Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make men slay each other.
To him was given a large sword.

A friend of mine asked me if the RED HORSE of Revelation 6 which we have always believed to be the horse of WAR could also be the horse of
 which we often call 'red.'  It started this thread!  Could the 'great sword' be the sickle?

In famine many will kill for food - or drugs.  Islam is Death, the pale horse?  Pale / ashen is 'chloros' - sickly green.  Green is a dominent color in Islam.
The 'green movement' today is NOT of GOD.

It is not that clear that the 2nd horseman of Revelation is war.  No one would ever call communism 'peaceful.'
No one ought to refer to Islam as peaceful either, its a satanic cult of hate, war and killing.

It could refer to civil war, people killing each other ala Cain doing to Abel (Genesis 4), race riots, blacks openly talking about killing whites - IN AMERICA! - and its OK with our whitehouse!  
Obama's lapdog Holder wont prosecute the black panthers for saying blacks should kill white babies.

So much of The Revelation Apocalypse was not intended to be understood until the End Time, until it was upon us.  It was not needed until now.

The BEASTS of Revelation 13

Could the FIRST BEAST of Revelation 13 with the deadly wound be communism in some form?
Notice it DOES NOT say head wound.  It wasnt long ago when everyone thought communism was dead.
Now it seems that communism is coming back with power that is being given to it by all the other nations, and it seems as though none can stand against it.

Some versions say dragon which would be satan, some say beast.  READ the commentaries at the bottom of the link.
This is a link to many differing translations.  It is rendered a little different in each.  DO NOT WORSHIP KJV!  It has errors too!
Revelation 13  -  http://bible.cc/revelation/13-1.htm

Reading that 2nd seal again the other day - it doesn't REALLY say "nations going to war against each other" ala WW3, in my honest opinion.
No, I'm not saying it's a 100% fact, but I don't see anywhere where it says WW3 or whatever big nuke war will break out among nations.

It sounds more like citizens in the same terrorities getting mad and killing each other(from civil unrest or whatever) ala what Cain did to Abel.
I guess you can say abortions are in this same category with the 2nd seal. Again, mho.

The Pale Horseman rides
August 5, 2014  
I've been keeping my eye on Ebola for several years. In 1976, the virus was first spotted in the Congo.  Ebola was elusive, emerging every few years from the jungles of Africa, killing several people, and then disappearing without a trace.

The five known strains of Ebola have a mortality rate of between 50% and 90% of those who are infected. It is generally believed to only spread through close contact with  blood or bodily fluid. However, Ebola has just managed to infect doctors who wore heavy protective gear.
The virus has also resisted all efforts to develop a vaccine.

This current ongoing 2014 outbreak is the largest, killed nearly 800 to date, which is more than all the other outbreaks combined.
It is running unchecked in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. The global community has reason to be worried.

We seem to be under increasing attacks from a growing number of infectious diseases. It was just a few months ago that the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, or MERS, was out to get us.

In China, around 200 people were killed by the bird flu. The reason for the big concern over diseases that only claim relatively few number of lives is because the gap between a few hundred deaths and several million could become very narrow.
If Ebola turns into a pandemic, we have a strong indication that the pale horse rider is getting ready to head out.

And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse, and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.  Revelation 6:7-8

Pale horse ghost seen in Egypt riots February 2011

Behold, a Pale Horse and its Rider’s Name Was Death  
Behold an Orange Horse and the rider’s name was Trump.  Laughing  
I just listened to Obama give Washington’s account of the situation with ISIL in Iraq and Syria.


Washington claims they are defeating ISIL in Iraq, but Russia and Assad are defeating the Syrian people in Syria.  Obama denounced Russia and Syria President Assad, but not ISIL, as barbaric. The message was clear: Washington still intends to overthrow Assad and turn Syria into another Libya and another Iraq, formerly stable and prosperous countries where war now rages continually.  It sickens me to hear the President of the United States lie and construct a false reality.


A global famine, sickness and death will sweep across the world and those who have not seen hunger, illness or sadness will weep. This has been foretold in the Bible.  It will happen.

Revelation 6  The Fourth Seal: Death

And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale (ashen, green, chloros) horse and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.  And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

beasts of the earth could refer to diseases, plagues
GREEN is the color of Islam.  This rider is ISIS

Islam intends the entire world will be their caliphate
