In the last 24 hours a major announcement has been made by the office of the rider of the White Horse. Before a joint session of Congress in the House of Representatives, President Donald J Trump officially announced a dramatic departure from the role the White House has been playing for many years now.
On Feb 28, 2017 President Trump declared to the American people and the world:
“We will respect historic institutions, but we will also respect the sovereign rights of nations.
Free nations are the best vehicle for expressing the will of the people — and America respects the right of all nations to chart their own path. My job is not to represent the world. My job is to represent the United States of America. But we know that America is better off, when there is less conflict — not more.
We must learn from the mistakes of the past — we have seen the war and destruction that have raged across our world.”
This is an historic break from the posture America has taken for at least the last generation. Indeed, for the last fourteen years, America has prosecuted unprovoked and unconscionable wars under the high-flown banner of its own deathbed democracy, telling other nations they should/must live as the West does, and killing many millions in its pursuit of global hegemony. In Iraq alone, far in excess of 500,000 children alone were killed under the pretext of playing at being the messiah ridding the world of a deplorable dictator. Just the depleted uranium, left saturating Iraq, will extend the suffering of countless more, sentencing them to an agonizing, creeping cancerous death.
The rider of the White Horse wore a crown with the title “King of the Free World”. His quiver was filled with deadly arrows boasting the latest technology and he launched them at his own discretion from his high perch in the White House. Presuming to speak for all ‘democratic’ states and flouting his self-assessed moral superiority, this crown is a total fraud. And now, finally, that fraud has been rejected by the new White House. The White Horse is taking its final bow.
No more will the White House think, speak and act from high upon its horse while trampling the poor, the desperate and helpless underfoot. President Trump’s declaration makes clear that the time of the White Horse is now ending. He does not view his job as that of a world leader. He rejects the notion that it’s America’s way or else. He will respect the sovereignty of nation states to determine for themselves how they will govern and live. Moreover, he wants the mistakes that previous White Houses have made to be examples of how not to rule America/Ephraim.
And how was this declaration received by the Korahites in the chamber? They sat on their hands, fuming, clucking their tongues, barely able to restrain their inward shrieking, many of the women emphatically garbed as whitewashed tombs and just as full of dead men’s bones. It’s beyond belief that America has come a point where a common sense affirmation of other nations’ right to chart their own course and America’s intent to do likewise is received as blasphemy. It as if they had sworn oaths to destroy the USA on the altar of global government. Bu that couldn’t be .. could it?
These are wonderful statements and by themselves they offer a real hope for a return to a more upright government of, by and for the people. However, as Christians we must recognize that the exit of the White Horse heralds the entrance of the Red Horse. The Red Horse rides over the whole earth during the period of global warfare that Jesus spoke about in Mat 13:8 (and elsewhere):
“Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains.”
Judgment comes first to the House of Israel and these wars will start with Ephraim/USA and Judah/Israel. They are only the beginning. The first birth pang will be the deadly wound to America when the Bear rips out three of its ribs and Israel suffers a wound great enough to force it to use nuclear weapons to survive. Into the power vacuum left by the former white-mounted global policeman will step Europe, the four-headed leopard, and wars will erupt in diverse places over a seven year period when peace is taken from the whole earth.
The good news for America is that the Eagle will be helped to its feet, supernaturally, and given a new heart! During the seven years of the Red Horse, as the world convulses in war upon war, America will be helped to recover in a peace borne out of a miraculous deliverance from foreign invaders and a true repentance that will sweep across a devastated, yet thankful, nation in a awesome revival of Christianity like nothing the world has ever seen.
During that time, America’s famine of physical food will be compensated by a feast of the Word. No more will Ephraim live by bread alone. This feast will last seven years until the Black and Pale Horses usher in a great darkness and the terrible famine of the Word during the last heptad of the age of man. Just as in Joseph’s Egypt, God will first provide His seven year feast to prepare all who will seek Him to face the unprecedented famine at the close of the age.
The word has now officially gone out from the White House. Anyone paying close attention to President Trump knows that, unlike his political predecessors, his words are not empty, high sounding but hollow sentiments. In the style and tone of man who says what he means and means what he says, he has consistently acted in full accordance with the substance of his campaign. President Trump’s words are straightforward, delivered unflinchingly and not to be taken lightly. It is well past time to prepare for the cataclysmic debut of the Red Horse.
