"Re: JFH and Rider on White Horse"


I haven't forgotten about the Trinity in any way, but your insistence that Jesus or the Holy Spirit is the rider on the white horse in Revelation 6:2 is still shaky nonetheless.  You referred to Revelation 19:11, but let's go to the very next verse (Rev. 19:12) and compare it to Revelation 6:2, which says: 
Rev. 6:2  I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

Rev. 19:12  His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
These two riders are not the same, although they appear to be similar at first glance.  The rider in Rev. 6:2 is merely an imitation.  Notice that he is given a crown (a single crown that he did not deserve as it was given to him), while the true Jesus in Rev. 19:12 already has many crowns on his head when he rides out.  I do not believe the rider of the white horse in either of these two verses is the Holy Spirit.  I don't know of any scripture that would suggest the Holy Spirit would be riding a horse.
