there are beliefs that the 3 horsemen of the apocalypse are riding the earth right now, but are they really? Lets see them in order in chapter 6, the other chapter before is the most powerful piece of evidence to know what needs to happen before the start of Tribulation and the release of the horsemen.
2And I saw, and behold a white horse.( 1st seal )
4And there went out another horse that was red ( 2nd seal )
5And I beheld, and lo a black horse. ( 3rd seal )
8And I looked, and behold a pale horse:( 4th seal )
Revelation 5:13 (King James Version)
And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
Notice every creature everywhere including earth is going to hear this before the 1st seal opens
Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. I haven’t heard this have you? Assuming that the book of Revelation is in order from the beginning up to chapter 6 verse one that means the horsemen haven’t been released yet
Revelation 6:1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
After the 1st seal opening, most likely starts tribulation. but before this happens you know what the whole world must hear in Rev 5:13, if the book of Rev is in order that means this verse below applies
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
