An Absolute

If there is a deity (and I say "if" not as how I believe, but as how many in the world believe) - if there is a deity, it can only be true that any fault anywhere at anytime, cannot be with the deity, but must be with us. Surely anything imperfect cannot endure. Therefore it is an absolute that the deity can only be perfect.

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

It's widely believed that the "Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" (rev/apoc chapter 6) begin their gallop during very latter days. I strongly disagree with this! Their gallop, progression, escalates during very latter days, but begins much sooner. The first horse and rider is upon a white horse. He comes riding out into Earth's story when the "first seal" of the "Seven Seals" is opened in heaven.
- The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are the first four "seals". They begin their ride when each seal is "opened". This first horseman wears a crown of victory and has conquered. This seal, or element of the latter age (the years of our Lord A.D.) is the conquering march of the gospel (the good news of death and the grave overcome).
- The second horseman is war, man and history's constant companion, this one (eventually) is given "a long sword" (surely our modern weaponry).
- The third horseman is holding an imbalanced scale and is called famine (a companion to war).
- The fourth horseman is another companion to war, pestilence (which will come to include chemical pestilence). This horseman has a name and his name is death and the grave follows him. Most translations say "hades" or "hell" follows him, but a much more accurate translation in tune with the "Sheol" of the Old Testament, is simply, "the grave". This fourth horseman includes the mass grave wherever (and whenever) it has occurred. All these riders escalate as very last days (of man's system) progress.

Don't 'spose you like a riddle..?

What is the "false prophet"/(teaching) of the book of revelation/apocalypse and the "strong delusion" after "falling away" mentioned elsewhere..? (most of the characters in the book of rev/apoc have in most minds morphed into one, but there are five). This one was involved with, or rather, enabled rev 13:13, which is the same as the new wind of 6:12-15 (followed by a pause,7:1), and will enable 13:16,17, which will escalate into 20:4.
