Behold A Pale Horse ( Audio Book)



Published on Apr 26, 2012


BAPH original and complete Audio Book. This is actually the only official version done by Bill, recorded when he got finished in Porterville with that particular presentation. This was done in San Francisco in a professional studio for clarity and quality.

When the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come.” I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.

— Revelation 6:7-8˄ NASB

The fourth and final horseman is named Death. Known as "the pale rider", of all the riders, he is the only one to whom the text itself explicitly gives a name. Unlike the other three, he is not described carrying a weapon or other object, instead he is followed by Hades (the resting place of the dead). However, illustrations commonly depict him carrying a scythe (like the Grim Reaper), sword,[22] or other implement.





Gustave Doré -The fourth horseman, Death on the Pale Horse (1865)
The color of Death's horse is written as khlōros (χλωρός) in the original Koine Greek,[23] which can mean either green/greenish-yellow or pale/pallid.[24] The color is often translated as "pale", though "ashen", "pale green", and "yellowish green"[18] are other possible interpretations (the Greek word is the root of "chlorophyll" and "chlorine"). Based on uses of the word in ancient Greek medical literature, several scholars suggest that the color reflects the sickly pallor of a corpse.[3][25] In some modern artistic depictions, the horse is distinctly green.[26][27][28]

The verse beginning "they were given power over a fourth of the earth" is generally taken as referring to Death and Hades,[18][29] although some commentators see it as applying to all four horsemen
