Revelation 6:2 - 8 "And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine. And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth."
And I saw, and behold a white horse, signifies, the understanding of truth from the Word, and he that sat upon him had a bow, signifies the doctrine of charity and faith, by which there is combat against evils and falsities, and by which they are dispersed. He that sat thereon, the white horse, was our Lord, which as we all know is the Word. The white horse is the intellect of man, or in this case, the understanding of spiritual truthfulness in the word. The black horse represents the understanding of the word destroyed as to truth. The red horse is the understanding of the word destroyer as to good. The pale horse represents that in the world, in process of time, good first perishes and afterwards truth, and at length evil succeeds in place of good, and falsity in place of truth. This last state of the church is meant by the pale horse where their is no faith and no charity and therefore spiritual death reigns throughout the world.
