"To: Gerry Almond.....The Rider on the White Horse"


You said:

“1.  White horse.....Catholicism circa 325 A. D. until Armageddon.  The rider has a bow, but no arrows.  He is the Papacy using the Word of God to gain his religio/political ends.  He will enslave mankind with the mark of the beast as the false prophet.”

 

The word rendered “bow” in Rev 6:2 is the Greek word “toxon”.

It is not the bow used in archery.
