The Scroll and Horsemen of the Book of Revelation

(Revelation 5:2) Jesus appears as a slain lamb and is found to have met the
legal requirements to open the scroll because he had been slain and paid the
ransom price with his blood. This is more evidence that the scroll is a redemption

God gave Jesus a revelation to show his servants things which must come to pass. In the revelation we see a scroll, written on the inside and on the outside, sealed with seven seals. As each of the first four seals are opened we see a horseman. What is the scroll? Who, or what, are the horsemen? How will we discern what or who they are? How will we know we have discerned correctly? Many others have attempted to identify the scroll and horsemen. This book will not attempt to refute each and every identification they have made, nor discuss every possible identification. The approach is to show that the evidence fits a single scroll and a single set of horsemen. If this approach is successful, then it will effectively rule out all other scrolls and horsemen. This book will not attempt to discuss the first horseman's bow and the green color of the fourth horseman as there is too little information available to discern them. The scroll will be identified first using the evidence regarding the scroll. Then each horseman will be identified using the evidence regarding each horseman. The question about discerning correctly will be answered by showing how - the horsemen fit together - the horsemen fit the scroll - the scroll and horsemen fit the book of Revelation and show us things to come.

Revelation offers a new way of viewing the world... When humans reject the divine order they misuse creation and thereby break the covenant with creation. The results of the breach of covenant include disease, suffering, famine and deprivation... Revelation is the unfolding of the significance of the cross through the witness of Jesus given by those who belong to him... The death, resurrection and ascension of the witnesses (the church) identify them as the covenant people of God re-acting the full ministry of Jesus... To each church the message is the same: believers can only enter the new Jerusalem by faithfulness unto death... Evil, conquered by the cross, will finally be eliminated from human experience. New covenant believers will therefore experience the divine purpose and provision of life in a new Eden. --from William Dumbrell's New Covenant Commentary

"Trafton has produced a clear, understandable, insightful reading of the book of Revelation - not an easy task for a book that has left many readers puzzled and confused. One of the particular strengths of Trafton's commentary is his close attention to the structure of John's work and the internal connections between various passages of the book. Readers will also benefit from Trafton's identification of John's extensive indebtedness to the Hebrew Bible for much of his imagery and ideas." - Mitchell G. Reddish O.L.

The message of Revelation speaks to Christians for all times, and historically has especially encouraged persecuted groups. Today Christians in many parts of the world are also at opposition to the worldview of the time. Revelation gives strength to those who are oppressed, and John R. Yeatts' commentary attends to themes of martyrdom, suffering, service in the world, hope, the triumph of Christ, and the role of the church in bearing witness to the triumphant Christ. The commentary includes clear biblical commentary, relationships between various portions of Scripture, and applications drawn from the Anabaptist tradition and the larger Christian community.

Dr. Edwin Walhout's lifelong interest in the book of Revelation comes to a mature climax in this volume, which shows convincingly how and why this elusive Christian scripture provides a comprehensive world-and-life view for understanding the world in which we live. Arguing that the orientation of Revelation is present, not future -- a perspective that brings balance to much current writing on the topic -- Walhout explains John's enigmatic visions in Revelation in pastoral, down-to-earth terms. He carefully describes for readers what the apostle John saw, and he relates these compelling visions to Jesus, the gospel, and the church today. According to Walhout, John was deeply concerned for the churches under his care, even though he was writing to them in exile, and he transcribed his visions in order to encourage them in their current persecution and trials. Through these strange yet powerful symbolic images, the churches were meant to grasp how God was working through Jesus, by means of the gospel and the power of Christ's Spirit, and how they in turn might cope in troubled times. From this perspective, the challenging visions of Revelation, discussed here as septets (the "Seven Churches", the "Seven Seals", the "Seven Trumpets", the "Seven Bowls") take on fresh and highly relevant meaning. The implications of Revelation for the future can be seen, but only as the result of what is happening in the present -- John's first-century "present" and also our own. Walhout's study shows the book of Revelation to contain a magnificent theology of history, with Jesus Christ directing humanity irresistibly toward its ultimate goal -- the new Jerusalem, where sin is no more.

"The manuscript argues that chapters 1 through 3 of the Book of Revelation as found in the New Testament were grafted unto the original body of Revelation that dates back to the last sixth or early fifth century B. C. In addition to the graft of chapters 1 through 3, the manuscript argues that 19:14 regarding the Word, and 22:8 regarding "John" identifying himself, and 22:16 regarding the testimony for the churches were inserted into the original body of Revelation during the first century A.D".-- Foreword.

Hindrances to Good Soldiering ~ The Breaking of the Scroll?s Seals Scene 4 ? Four Horsemen Rev 6:1-8 All eyes are now focussed on the Lamb. No one but the Lamb can open the scroll by breaking its seals. It is up to Him to reveal to us His Majesty?s heart and mind, contained in the scroll. The Lamb breaks open the first seal, and a command like thunder rumbles through the air: ?Come!? That was the voice of one of the living creatures. Our eyes are diverted to the side, and we look upon the world. From the left a white horse appears, its rider a warrior, bow in hand. He is galloping ahead like a general leading his army to victory. We see the Lamb break the second seal, accompanied by the second living creature?s command: ?Come!? On earth, a red horse appears. Its rider holds a huge sword. He moves about more slowly. Where he passes through, people come to blows with one another. People are being murdered. The third seal is broken, and the voice of the third living creature calls, ?Come!? a black horse rides into the scene. Its rider holds the weigh-scales of a grain trader. a voice from the direction of the 4 living creatures is calling out grain prices. The prices of wheat and barley are staggering. However, there does not seem to be a shortage of oil and wine. The Lamb breaks the fourth seal. The fourth living creature calls, ?Come!? Into our vision comes a pale green horse. The rider wears a nametag: ?Death.? He gives us the feeling that hell and the grave are all around him. The colour reminds us of pestilence. _________________________________________________________ Rev 6:1-8 1. and I saw, when the Lamb opened one of the 7 seals, and I heard one of the 4 living creatures saying as with a sound of thunder, ?Come!? 2. and I saw, and LOOK!: a white horse and the one sitting on it having a bow. [1] and a crown (victor?s laurel wreath) was given to him, [2] and he went forth 1] overcoming & 2] in order that he might overcome. 3. and when He opened the second seal, I heard == 8. and I saw, and LOOK!: a pale green horse, and the one sitting on it, 1] his name, ?death,? & 2] hades followed with him, and to them was given authority over 1/4 part of the earth, to kill 1] with sword & 2] with famine & 3] with death & 4] by the wild beasts of the earth. _________________________________________________________ When we consider the purpose of the scroll?s seals, we must first ask, ?What is their technical function?? They represent the impediments to the Church?s discovering God?s rescue plan for the world?s people (contained in the scroll). In spiritual terms, what is it that keeps the Church from clearly seeing into God?s purposes? Is it not misunderstandings and misconceptions about God?s relationship with His creation? As the seals are opened let us look then for the misunderstandings that need to be removed from our thinking, about how God is working out His plans for the world. The breaking of the first 4 seals is cast in images from visions of the prophets Zechariah and Ezekiel. In Zechariah?s first vision (Zech 1:8-11), at a time before God takes vengeance for the destruction of Jerusalem, horses in three different colours have patrolled the earth. The
