REVELATION 6:1 Then I saw when the Lamb broke one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, "Come." 2 I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.9(The bow is usually interpreted as a weapon of military... I see it as a tool for the one waiting in humility(crown) to receive one's due, to spread the truth with the fire of passion in his heart that sat patiently.4 And another, a red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another; and a great sword was given to him. (NASU) ...( and this other one, from a different time was allotted to wield the sword of Knowledge, with less patience and love as the first messenger forcing a shock that shatters the egos of the disillusioned. Rev6...I looked, and behold, a black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. 6 And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, "A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not damage the oil and the wine." (NASU)...( The scales which weigh the heart of intentions casting gloom in the hearts made of gain. For Jesus says, it is easier for a camel to pass the eye of a needle than it is for a rich man to enter heaven.
People speak of the end of time, the Apocalypse, the day of judgment as if it were some Jerusalem or Rome. A great war bringing great famine and destruction of an unbearable nature, but this misinterpretation is a sign of all who will actualize the truth of this prophecy upon themselves, because this fear only reveals what so many value as worth losing. So many seem to worry of the consequences after the fact.. "Will I go to Heaven or Hell"? is the driving force of the majority of this earths conscious. It seems the one's who work hard at Christian life, also have this end goal in mind. It is the question of the millennia, of the end time, for all eternity will I go, will he go, will she go?
The Abyss which lives in the depths of ones spirit(psyche) is where the Beast has dwelled for aeons. The law supplanted in the hearts of everyman resonates with Jesus Christ. Jesus is the only way, truth and life. This life he offers is now, not yesterday, or tomorrow. Christ presides in the ever present moment and no doctrine or thought of understanding can grasp his elusive glory. One can choose death, just as the serpent denied would ever happen to Eve; however she took a breath for many centuries, but died to the presence of Christ beside her. Fallacies of Heaven and Hell rewarded by one's own accord are the definition of sin written by the man of yester. To believe anything outside of the present is a lie. Idolatry is the first commandment.
