Scripture: Revelation 6:7-8
Revelation 6:7-8 says, “When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, ‘Come and see.’ So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.” Things become so wicked in the earth that Jesus grants the release of a pale horse and that pale horse results in the killing of one third of the earth’s population. Today that would come out to about 2 billion people. Two billion people get killed in one plague because of the rebellion in the earth. God is willing to do that in the hopes that others will be saved. Surely we can understand that the God in the book of Revelation recognizes that people get to the point of being so rebellious that the only way to protect and save others is the destruction of the wicked. The prayers of the saints are what open and release these judgments according to Revelation 5:8-10. As soon as the bowls of incense, which are the prayers of the saints, are spread out before Jesus, He opens the scroll and begins to release the judgments. The church is assigned the responsibility of praying the Spirit-birthed prayers that will release such judgments. I believe this nation has an assignment to stand by Israel and help her survive so Israel can be grafted back in. We may well be the great eagle of Revelation 12 and this may be our purpose therefore it is essential that all those who promote Israel’s destruction meet the God Who releases the pale horse. There is a pale horse in their future and it is time we prayed it on every single one of them. Lord, let the pale horse loose on the destroyers of Israel in Jesus name!
