Revelation 6


Revelation 6 describes what happens when each of the seals from Revelation 5 are opened. With the opening of the first seal there appears a white horse, the rider of which has a bow and a crown.  When the second seal is opened a red horse appears with the rider having a sword who takes peace from the earth. The third seal reveals a rider on a black horse with a pair of balances in his hand.  As the fourth seal is opened a pale horse appears, the name of its rider is death and hell. When the fifth seal is opened, the souls beneath the altar cry for justice. The opening of the sixth seal causes a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; and the stars of heaven fell unto the earth. The opening of the seventh seal does not occur until chapter eight.
