The horsemen

Post #1

Post by bjs »

Does anyone know why “pestilence� is widely thought of as one of the four horseman from Revelations? The sixth chapter of revelations talks about Conquest, War, Famine and Death. Where did pestilence come from?

And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider's name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth.
(Revelation 6:8 ESV)

Pestilence isn't the name of one of the four horsemen but it is often associated with death.
His invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made.
Romans 1:20 ESV
