I'm answering to your post:
Here are my collected thoughts why the first seal horse rider can't be Jesus:
- Jesus in Revelation is clearly identified by a SWORD, never a bow
- Jesus is the lamb in the midst of the 4 creatures, that opens the seal at the very same time the horse and its rider are released
- Assigning Jesus to the first seal rider downgrades him to the the same level of the other 3 riders. Can't be! He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords! He is not "followed by death" but he OVERCAME death!
Please check out http://hungryheartsministries.com/id459.html for a brief comparison between Matthew 24 and Revelation 6 - it could not be any clearer than that!
