I'm glad to hear that, Tovey; but you will have to do considerable explaining, to tell me exactly what you DO believe. I have been studying Rev for some time; and it's fairly obvious to me that we are living now in the time of the third seal, the third trumpet and the third vial, and have been ever since Chernobyl. Even the colors of the horses is suggestive:

  1. White -- as in "White Russians", a color label applied to the Anti-Bolshevik forces and their League of Nations allies during the Russian Revolution
  2. Red -- as in the "Communists", who fomented revolutions and wars all over the world during the Cold War
  3. Black -- the color of Islamist armies, who have dominated the news since the time of Chernobyl

The Green horse seems to be upon us soon, as in "greenhouse gasses", the "Green" movement and the US dollar.

Your own take on the matter, seems to be that none of these things have been happening, that it will all happen at once as some sort of Lord of the Rings end-time scenario in some future time. That's why I call this thinking (which is VERY popular in Evangelical circles) "head-in-the-sand" prophecy. It ignores WWII, the Holocaust, the nuclear age, the establishment of Israel, the Cold War and the present craziness, as though these things and we who have witnessed them are irrelevant to God's plan.

You have a right to believe anything you want. I just wish you would present what you believe more plainly.

You bothered to answer my question. Thanks.
