The Four Horsemen are the Manifestations of Christ's Presence for all to SEE. "For just as the lightning comes out of the east and shines over to the west, so the PRESENCE of the Son of man will be." (Matthew 24:27)
They are part of the Composite Sign Jesus answered to the question, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your presence and of the conclusion of the system of things?” (Matthew 24:3)
The Manifestation of Christ's Presence was for All to Witness! "For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another. All these things are a beginning of pangs of distress." (Matthew 24:7-8) "Another came out, a fiery-colored horse, and it was granted to the one seated on it to take peace away from the earth so that they should slaughter one another, and he was given a great sword. (Rev 6:4)
And I saw, and look! a pale horse, and the one seated on it had the name Death. And the Grave was closely following him. And authority was given them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with a long sword and with food shortage and with deadly plague and by the wild beasts of the earth. "(Rev 6:8) "There will be great earthquakes, and in one place after another food shortages and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and from heaven great signs." (Luke 21:11)
During this Manifestation Period, all inhabitants of the earth are affected. (Matthew 24:30) Even God's Named People (aka) Jehovah's Witnesses are not immune to these affects. Walk by faith brothers and sisters to your end and your life will be without end. How will this Manifestation Phase come to an end? Keep reading...
The first horse is a white one and Jesus Christ is the Rider. His conquest at the beginning is also part of the Manifestation Phase of his Presence but a Revelation towards the end of his conquest. "And I saw another angel flying in midheaven, and he had everlasting good news to declare to those who dwell on the earth, to every nation and tribe and tongue and people." (Rev 14:6) "And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come." (Matthew 24:14)
WTS Quote: "The days of Noah” actually covered a period of years, so there is basis for the understanding that the foretold “presence [or “days”] of the Son of man” would likewise cover a period of years. Like Noah’s days, which climaxed with the Flood, “the presence of the Son of man” would culminate in the destruction of those who do not seek deliverance."
