  • Islam in Bible prophecy.
  • 00:00:07.170 --> 00:00:10.150
  • - Since the attacks on 9/11,
  • 00:00:10.150 --> 00:00:12.200
  • the West has tried to understand the beliefs of Islam.
  • 00:00:12.200 --> 00:00:15.280
  • We will learn today that Islam was prophesied in the Bible
  • 00:00:15.280 --> 00:00:19.190
  • 600 years before Muhammad was even born.
  • 00:00:19.190 --> 00:00:23.060

  • 00:00:28.240 --> 00:00:31.060
  • - Welcome to End Of The Age.
  • 00:01:02.160 --> 00:01:04.090
  • It hasn't been too many years
  • 00:01:04.090 --> 00:01:05.260
  • since the planes flew into the World Trade Towers
  • 00:01:05.260 --> 00:01:09.070
  • in New York City.
  • 00:01:09.070 --> 00:01:10.160
  • The attention of the whole world
  • 00:01:10.160 --> 00:01:12.210
  • was suddenly riveted on a religion
  • 00:01:12.210 --> 00:01:15.060
  • which very few Americans knew much about, Islam.
  • 00:01:15.060 --> 00:01:19.280
  • Mecca, Saudi Arabia is the center of Islam.
  • 00:01:19.280 --> 00:01:24.060
  • Every Muslim, at least once in their lifetime,
  • 00:01:24.060 --> 00:01:26.250
  • attempts to make a trek to Mecca to visit the heartland
  • 00:01:26.250 --> 00:01:31.010
  • of the land of Muhammad the prophet
  • 00:01:31.010 --> 00:01:33.250
  • who wrote the Koran, the holy book of the Islamic religion.
  • 00:01:33.250 --> 00:01:38.240
  • The word Islam means submission.
  • 00:01:39.240 --> 00:01:42.220
  • A Muslim is a person who follows the religion of Islam.
  • 00:01:42.220 --> 00:01:46.170
  • It is claimed that there are around
  • 00:01:46.170 --> 00:01:48.000
  • 1.7 to 1.8 billion Muslims in the world today.
  • 00:01:48.000 --> 00:01:52.170
  • Today, we will find out
  • 00:01:52.170 --> 00:01:54.180
  • that the Bible prophesied about Islam
  • 00:01:54.180 --> 00:01:57.190
  • 600 years before Islam even existed.
  • 00:01:57.190 --> 00:02:02.050
  • It is a familiar prophecy.
  • 00:02:02.050 --> 00:02:04.220
  • It's the famous prophecy
  • 00:02:04.220 --> 00:02:06.090
  • of the Four Horsemen of the apocalypse.
  • 00:02:06.090 --> 00:02:10.000
  • Though there have been books written and movies made
  • 00:02:10.000 --> 00:02:12.100
  • about these horrific event, or these people,
  • 00:02:12.100 --> 00:02:15.180
  • these horses, the Four Horsemen of the Revelation,
  • 00:02:15.180 --> 00:02:19.010
  • most people still don't understand the prophecy.
  • 00:02:19.010 --> 00:02:23.000
  • Irvin, let's dive right into the prophecy
  • 00:02:23.000 --> 00:02:26.000
  • about the Four Horsemen.
  • 00:02:26.000 --> 00:02:27.140
  • Understanding their identities is a very big key
  • 00:02:27.140 --> 00:02:31.000
  • to understanding the Book of Revelation.
  • 00:02:31.000 --> 00:02:33.000
  • - The Book of Revelation has a skeletal structure
  • 00:02:34.130 --> 00:02:39.010
  • of three groups of seven.
  • 00:02:39.010 --> 00:02:41.140
  • It has the seven seals, seven trumpets, and seven vials.
  • 00:02:41.140 --> 00:02:46.140
  • The Four Horsemen are the first four seals
  • 00:02:47.210 --> 00:02:50.260
  • of the seven seals.
  • 00:02:50.260 --> 00:02:52.250
  • We find the prophecy in Revelation 6:1-8.
  • 00:02:52.250 --> 00:02:57.140
  • This passage describes four horses,
  • 00:02:57.140 --> 00:03:01.130
  • a white horse, a red horse, a black horse, and a pale horse.
  • 00:03:01.130 --> 00:03:06.130
  • What are these four horses a symbol of?
  • 00:03:07.200 --> 00:03:10.200
  • And what is the significance of the different colors?
  • 00:03:10.200 --> 00:03:15.120
  • Another account of this prophecy
  • 00:03:15.120 --> 00:03:17.210
  • is found in the Old Testament in Zechariah 6:1-8.
  • 00:03:17.210 --> 00:03:22.200
  • Zechariah saw the same colored horses that John saw
  • 00:03:24.060 --> 00:03:29.060
  • in the Book of Revelation.
  • 00:03:30.020 --> 00:03:31.160
  • Fortunately, Zechariah 6:4-5 tells us
  • 00:03:31.160 --> 00:03:36.160
  • what these horses symbolize.
  • 00:03:37.120 --> 00:03:40.180
  • Listen to it.
  • 00:03:40.180 --> 00:03:41.260
  • "And I answered and said unto the angel
  • 00:03:41.260 --> 00:03:44.000
  • "that talked with me, what are these, my Lord?
  • 00:03:44.000 --> 00:03:48.010
  • "And the angel answered and said unto me,
  • 00:03:48.010 --> 00:03:50.150
  • "these are four spirits of the heavens,
  • 00:03:50.150 --> 00:03:54.060
  • "which go forth from standing before the Lord
  • 00:03:54.060 --> 00:03:58.140
  • "of all the earth."
  • 00:03:58.140 --> 00:04:00.060
  • - So Irvin, you're saying that,
  • 00:04:00.060 --> 00:04:02.030
  • well, we know from Scripture that Zechariah,
  • 00:04:02.030 --> 00:04:05.030
  • the prophecy of Zechariah and these Four Horsemen,
  • 00:04:05.030 --> 00:04:08.090
  • lets us know that these Four Horsemen
  • 00:04:08.090 --> 00:04:09.290
  • and their riders are spirits.
  • 00:04:09.290 --> 00:04:12.090
  • So, what are these spirits?
  • 00:04:12.090 --> 00:04:14.200
  • - Well, that's a big key, and like I said,
  • 00:04:14.200 --> 00:04:17.160
  • the puzzle's coming together.
  • 00:04:17.160 --> 00:04:19.130
  • Dave, I'm going to explain these horses
  • 00:04:19.130 --> 00:04:22.260
  • in the order God helped me to understand them.
  • 00:04:22.260 --> 00:04:26.170
  • Let's look at the red horse first.
  • 00:04:26.170 --> 00:04:28.280
  • Back to the Book of Revelation, in Revelation 6:3-4.
  • 00:04:28.280 --> 00:04:33.280
  • It describes the red horse and its rider in detail.
  • 00:04:35.110 --> 00:04:38.230
  • "And when he had opened the second seal,
  • 00:04:39.250 --> 00:04:42.060
  • "I heard the second beast say, come and see.
  • 00:04:42.060 --> 00:04:46.060
  • "And there went out another horse that was red,
  • 00:04:46.060 --> 00:04:49.140
  • "and power was given to him
  • 00:04:49.140 --> 00:04:51.080
  • "that sat thereon to take peace from the earth
  • 00:04:51.080 --> 00:04:55.010
  • "and that they should kill one another,
  • 00:04:55.010 --> 00:04:57.180
  • "and there was given unto him a great sword."
  • 00:04:57.180 --> 00:05:02.200
  • Consider this.
  • 00:05:04.170 --> 00:05:06.070
  • What spirit in our world today could be the red horse,
  • 00:05:06.070 --> 00:05:11.050
  • or could the red horse symbolize?
  • 00:05:12.030 --> 00:05:13.240
  • There is an international spirit
  • 00:05:14.270 --> 00:05:17.100
  • that influences what people believe,
  • 00:05:17.100 --> 00:05:20.150
  • how they live, and what they do.
  • 00:05:20.150 --> 00:05:23.120
  • Think about it.
  • 00:05:23.120 --> 00:05:25.020
  • Communism is commonly associated with the color red.
  • 00:05:25.020 --> 00:05:29.290
  • Communist nations are referred to as red nations.
  • 00:05:29.290 --> 00:05:33.210
  • For example, Red China, Red Russia, Red Romania, and so on.
  • 00:05:33.210 --> 00:05:38.180
  • From its very outset,
  • 00:05:38.180 --> 00:05:40.070
  • the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917 in Russia,
  • 00:05:40.070 --> 00:05:44.100
  • to the China Revolution in 1949,
  • 00:05:44.100 --> 00:05:48.070
  • and the conflicts in Korea, Vietnam, and the Congo,
  • 00:05:48.070 --> 00:05:51.270
  • communism has robbed our world of peace.
  • 00:05:51.270 --> 00:05:55.240
  • A perfect fulfillment of the description.
  • 00:05:55.240 --> 00:05:59.000
  • This passage continues by saying,
  • 00:05:59.000 --> 00:06:02.030
  • "And that they should kill one another."
  • 00:06:02.030 --> 00:06:05.020
  • Not only do communists fight their enemies,
  • 00:06:05.020 --> 00:06:08.110
  • but they fight against themselves as well.
  • 00:06:08.110 --> 00:06:10.290
  • For example, Stalin killed 20 million Russians
  • 00:06:10.290 --> 00:06:14.140
  • during his reign in the Soviet Union.
  • 00:06:14.140 --> 00:06:17.250
  • Over the past 60 years, 60 million Chinese have been killed
  • 00:06:17.250 --> 00:06:22.250
  • in the Cultural Revolution.
  • 00:06:24.180 --> 00:06:27.280
  • This prophecy also says,
  • 00:06:27.280 --> 00:06:31.040
  • "And there was given unto him a great sword."
  • 00:06:31.040 --> 00:06:35.000
  • The countries that embrace communism
  • 00:06:35.000 --> 00:06:37.050
  • have great military might.
  • 00:06:37.050 --> 00:06:40.130
  • No one would want to fight China and Russia
  • 00:06:40.130 --> 00:06:43.260
  • at the same time.
  • 00:06:43.260 --> 00:06:45.070
  • The red horse and its rider is communism.
  • 00:06:45.070 --> 00:06:50.070
  • - So, in this prophecy, there are four separate horses,
  • 00:06:51.190 --> 00:06:53.210
  • and if the first horse, the red horse symbolizes communism,
  • 00:06:53.210 --> 00:06:58.110
  • what does the black horse symbolize?
  • 00:06:59.230 --> 00:07:02.020
  • - Revelation 6:5-6 describes the black horse.
  • 00:07:02.020 --> 00:07:07.020
  • "And I beheld, and lo, a black horse, and he that sat on him
  • 00:07:08.160 --> 00:07:12.120
  • "had a pair of balances in his hand.
  • 00:07:12.120 --> 00:07:15.210
  • "And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say,
  • 00:07:15.210 --> 00:07:19.040
  • "a measure of wheat for a penny,
  • 00:07:19.040 --> 00:07:21.100
  • "three measures of barley for a penny,
  • 00:07:21.100 --> 00:07:23.240
  • "and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine."
  • 00:07:23.240 --> 00:07:28.120
  • Instead of having a sword,
  • 00:07:29.180 --> 00:07:32.030
  • the rider of the black horse has a pair of balances.
  • 00:07:32.030 --> 00:07:36.290
  • Balances represent trade and commerce.
  • 00:07:36.290 --> 00:07:40.230
  • The counterpart to communism is capitalism.
  • 00:07:40.230 --> 00:07:45.230
  • Trade and commerce is what makes capitalism work.
  • 00:07:47.050 --> 00:07:51.090
  • It is free enterprise
  • 00:07:52.080 --> 00:07:54.110
  • that motivates the spirit of capitalism.
  • 00:07:54.110 --> 00:07:58.180
  • Revelation 6:6 says, "A measure of wheat for a penny,
  • 00:07:58.180 --> 00:08:02.150
  • "and three measures of barley for a penny,
  • 00:08:02.150 --> 00:08:04.280
  • "and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine."
  • 00:08:04.280 --> 00:08:08.290
  • This almost sounds like a prophetic stock market report.
  • 00:08:08.290 --> 00:08:13.000
  • In a capitalist society,
  • 00:08:13.000 --> 00:08:15.090
  • everything revolves around the economy.
  • 00:08:15.090 --> 00:08:19.120
  • Dave, I found the elections in Germany in 1966.
  • 00:08:19.120 --> 00:08:24.120
  • I followed those elections because Germany
  • 00:08:25.210 --> 00:08:28.000
  • has been the pivot of European history
  • 00:08:28.000 --> 00:08:30.070
  • for the last 1000 years.
  • 00:08:30.070 --> 00:08:32.260
  • Most of the emperors of the Holy Roman Empire
  • 00:08:32.260 --> 00:08:35.130
  • have come from Germany.
  • 00:08:35.130 --> 00:08:38.020
  • So, I was very interested in what was going on
  • 00:08:38.020 --> 00:08:40.270
  • in the heartland of Europe.
  • 00:08:40.270 --> 00:08:42.220
  • Two major parties were involved
  • 00:08:42.220 --> 00:08:45.030
  • in the 1966 German elections.
  • 00:08:45.030 --> 00:08:49.050
  • There was the Socialist Party, the Social Democrats,
  • 00:08:49.050 --> 00:08:53.120
  • and there was the Capitalist Party, the Christian Democrats.
  • 00:08:53.120 --> 00:08:58.120
  • When the votes came in, neither side won a majority.
  • 00:08:59.240 --> 00:09:02.230
  • A third smaller party
  • 00:09:02.230 --> 00:09:04.250
  • called the Free Democratic People's Party, the FDP,
  • 00:09:04.250 --> 00:09:07.240
  • won about 7% of the votes.
  • 00:09:07.240 --> 00:09:12.070
  • This left the FDP holding the balance of power.
  • 00:09:12.070 --> 00:09:17.070
  • Neither the Christian Democrats nor the Social Democrats
  • 00:09:18.170 --> 00:09:21.140
  • could put together a government
  • 00:09:21.140 --> 00:09:22.280
  • without forming a coalition with the FDP.
  • 00:09:22.280 --> 00:09:26.270
  • Because the FDP continued to demand
  • 00:09:26.270 --> 00:09:29.190
  • more power in the government
  • 00:09:29.190 --> 00:09:31.260
  • than its 7% of the vote deserved,
  • 00:09:31.260 --> 00:09:36.000
  • the Christian Democratic and the Social Democratic parties
  • 00:09:36.000 --> 00:09:40.200
  • formed what was called the Grand Coalition,
  • 00:09:40.200 --> 00:09:44.240
  • bypassing the FDP.
  • 00:09:44.240 --> 00:09:46.250
  • The December 9th 1966 issue of Time magazine
  • 00:09:48.180 --> 00:09:53.170
  • reported the following about this Grand Coalition.
  • 00:09:54.290 --> 00:09:58.040
  • Here's what it said:
  • 00:09:58.040 --> 00:09:59.130
  • "A grand coalition of the two major parties,
  • 00:09:59.130 --> 00:10:02.270
  • "the Christian Democrats and the Social Democrats,
  • 00:10:02.270 --> 00:10:06.240
  • "have bitterly fought each other for years.
  • 00:10:06.240 --> 00:10:11.020
  • "A union of black and red.
  • 00:10:11.020 --> 00:10:15.060
  • "It was a marriage of convenience,
  • 00:10:15.060 --> 00:10:17.240
  • "but a stunning match nonetheless."
  • 00:10:17.240 --> 00:10:21.270
  • That's when I learned
  • 00:10:21.270 --> 00:10:23.120
  • that black is the official color of capitalism,
  • 00:10:23.120 --> 00:10:27.260
  • just like red is the official color of communism.
  • 00:10:27.260 --> 00:10:32.180
  • - You know, Irvin, these are such critical prophecies
  • 00:10:32.180 --> 00:10:35.220
  • to understand, especially when you go to the four seals,
  • 00:10:35.220 --> 00:10:38.230
  • the seven seals, seven trumpets, seven vials.
  • 00:10:38.230 --> 00:10:42.040
  • To understand the first four seals,
  • 00:10:42.040 --> 00:10:43.160
  • you have to understand the different colors
  • 00:10:43.160 --> 00:10:45.270
  • and what they represent.
  • 00:10:45.270 --> 00:10:47.140
  • The different spirits, the different riders of the horses.
  • 00:10:47.140 --> 00:10:50.290
  • These are amazing things.
  • 00:10:50.290 --> 00:10:52.250
  • Red now, that we know you've just explained,
  • 00:10:52.250 --> 00:10:55.190
  • represents communism.
  • 00:10:55.190 --> 00:10:57.030
  • Black represents capitalism.

  • We've already covered two, the red horse,
  • 00:13:08.000 --> 00:13:10.180
  • which represents communism.
  • 00:13:10.180 --> 00:13:12.290
  • The black horseman, which represents capitalism.
  • 00:13:12.290 --> 00:13:16.070
  • Irvin, what does the white horse
  • 00:13:16.070 --> 00:13:18.260
  • or the white spirit represent?
  • 00:13:18.260 --> 00:13:20.120
  • - Revelation 6:2 gives us the description
  • 00:13:21.240 --> 00:13:25.020
  • of the white horse rider.
  • 00:13:25.020 --> 00:13:27.130
  • "And I saw, and behold a white horse,
  • 00:13:27.130 --> 00:13:30.230
  • "and he that sat upon him had a bow,
  • 00:13:30.230 --> 00:13:33.250
  • "and a crown was given unto him,
  • 00:13:33.250 --> 00:13:36.050
  • "and he went forth conquering and to conquer."
  • 00:13:36.050 --> 00:13:40.190
  • In his book titled
  • 00:13:41.240 --> 00:13:43.020
  • "Communism, Democracy, and Catholic Power".
  • 00:13:43.020 --> 00:13:46.020
  • political scientist Paul Blanchard
  • 00:13:46.020 --> 00:13:48.270
  • contended that it was these three powers,
  • 00:13:48.270 --> 00:13:53.000
  • these three belief systems
  • 00:13:53.000 --> 00:13:55.160
  • that control what nations do and what individuals do.
  • 00:13:55.160 --> 00:14:00.180
  • He said, almost every conflict
  • 00:14:01.140 --> 00:14:03.030
  • between nations in modern history
  • 00:14:03.030 --> 00:14:06.200
  • has been produced by conflicts among these three powers,
  • 00:14:06.200 --> 00:14:11.040
  • communism, democracy, and Catholicism.
  • 00:14:11.040 --> 00:14:15.130
  • This statement made me consider this question:
  • 00:14:15.130 --> 00:14:19.200
  • could Catholicism be the white power from Revelation 6?
  • 00:14:19.200 --> 00:14:24.200
  • In his book titled "Keys of This Blood",
  • 00:14:27.050 --> 00:14:30.010
  • Mr. Malachi Martin, one of the foremost
  • 00:14:30.010 --> 00:14:32.070
  • Roman Catholic writers of the 20th century,
  • 00:14:32.070 --> 00:14:35.240
  • said in his very first chapter,
  • 00:14:35.240 --> 00:14:38.180
  • "The question is not
  • 00:14:38.180 --> 00:14:40.140
  • "is there going to be a world government?
  • 00:14:40.140 --> 00:14:42.290
  • "That's a settled issue
  • 00:14:42.290 --> 00:14:44.150
  • "since all nations are now interdependent.
  • 00:14:44.150 --> 00:14:48.030
  • "The only question is, who will rule
  • 00:14:48.030 --> 00:14:51.120
  • "the coming one world government?"
  • 00:14:51.120 --> 00:14:54.050
  • He continued by saying there are three
  • 00:14:54.050 --> 00:14:57.000
  • and only three geopolitical powers
  • 00:14:57.000 --> 00:15:00.070
  • with the necessary doctrine and structure
  • 00:15:00.070 --> 00:15:03.170
  • to rule a world government.
  • 00:15:03.170 --> 00:15:06.190
  • Communism, Catholicism, and capitalism.
  • 00:15:06.190 --> 00:15:10.290
  • This was the same thing Paul Blanchard said,
  • 00:15:10.290 --> 00:15:14.170
  • so I began searching to see
  • 00:15:14.170 --> 00:15:17.290
  • if the white spirit represented Catholicism.
  • 00:15:17.290 --> 00:15:22.010
  • It's the tradition in the Catholic Church
  • 00:15:24.150 --> 00:15:27.200
  • for the Pope to dress in white.
  • 00:15:27.200 --> 00:15:30.150
  • He's dressed in white almost every time you see him.
  • 00:15:30.150 --> 00:15:34.050
  • The Pope's helicopter is white.
  • 00:15:34.050 --> 00:15:37.060
  • His bulletproof vehicle,
  • 00:15:37.060 --> 00:15:39.060
  • the pope mobile that he uses for parades
  • 00:15:39.060 --> 00:15:42.110
  • and public appearances, is white.
  • 00:15:42.110 --> 00:15:45.080
  • The jet airplane supplied by Alitalia Airlines
  • 00:15:45.080 --> 00:15:48.280
  • for the Pope to use in his travels around the world
  • 00:15:48.280 --> 00:15:52.080
  • is white.
  • 00:15:52.080 --> 00:15:54.180
  • So, if the Pope had a horse,
  • 00:15:54.180 --> 00:15:57.220
  • what color would we expect it to be?
  • 00:15:57.220 --> 00:16:00.220
  • Well, you know the answer.
  • 00:16:00.220 --> 00:16:02.180
  • - Now that we know these prophecies from Revelation
  • 00:16:02.180 --> 00:16:05.170
  • and Zechariah were referring to belief systems,
  • 00:16:05.170 --> 00:16:08.190
  • what about the pale horse?
  • 00:16:08.190 --> 00:16:11.090
  • (stammers) I mean, something that we discovered
  • 00:16:11.090 --> 00:16:13.130
  • just over the past few years,
  • 00:16:13.130 --> 00:16:15.120
  • what in Revelation have you discovered
  • 00:16:15.120 --> 00:16:17.080
  • in the scriptures, Irvin?
  • 00:16:17.080 --> 00:16:19.110
  • - Well, Revelation 6:7-8 tells us about the pale horse.
  • 00:16:19.110 --> 00:16:24.110
  • Listen to it.
  • 00:16:24.290 --> 00:16:26.030
  • "And when he had opened the fourth seal,
  • 00:16:26.030 --> 00:16:27.270
  • "I heard the voice and the fourth beast say, come and see.
  • 00:16:27.270 --> 00:16:31.200
  • "And I looked, and behold, a pale horse.
  • 00:16:31.200 --> 00:16:34.150
  • "And his name that sat upon him was Death,
  • 00:16:34.150 --> 00:16:38.100
  • "and hell followed with him.
  • 00:16:38.100 --> 00:16:40.270
  • "And power was given unto them
  • 00:16:40.270 --> 00:16:42.200
  • "over the fourth part of the earth
  • 00:16:42.200 --> 00:16:45.000
  • "to kill with sword, with hunger, with death,
  • 00:16:45.000 --> 00:16:48.160
  • "and with the beast of the earth."
  • 00:16:48.160 --> 00:16:51.070
  • This was the most difficult
  • 00:16:53.050 --> 00:16:55.020
  • of the horses for me to understand.
  • 00:16:55.020 --> 00:16:57.110
  • The prophecy said, the rider on the pale horse was death.
  • 00:16:57.110 --> 00:17:01.120
  • So, for a while, I assumed the pale horse and its rider
  • 00:17:01.120 --> 00:17:05.150
  • was simply the spirit of death in the earth.
  • 00:17:05.150 --> 00:17:09.050
  • However, it just never felt right.
  • 00:17:09.050 --> 00:17:12.290
  • Catholicism, communism, capitalism, death.
  • 00:17:12.290 --> 00:17:16.060
  • Didn't match.
  • 00:17:16.060 --> 00:17:17.210
  • Finally, I decided to see what the original Greek word was
  • 00:17:17.210 --> 00:17:22.190
  • that was translated pale
  • 00:17:23.110 --> 00:17:24.180
  • in the King James version of the Bible.
  • 00:17:24.180 --> 00:17:27.160
  • I found the original Greek word was chloros.
  • 00:17:27.160 --> 00:17:31.060
  • The word chlorophyll originates from this word.
  • 00:17:31.060 --> 00:17:34.240
  • It means green.
  • 00:17:34.240 --> 00:17:37.020
  • The Greek word chloros is found in the New Testament
  • 00:17:37.020 --> 00:17:41.010
  • three other times besides its use
  • 00:17:41.010 --> 00:17:43.110
  • in Revelation 6:8 about the pale horse.
  • 00:17:43.110 --> 00:17:46.270
  • Every time, it was translated green
  • 00:17:46.270 --> 00:17:48.250
  • except in Revelation 6:8, where it says,
  • 00:17:48.250 --> 00:17:53.250
  • "And I looked, and behold, a chloros horse."
  • 00:17:55.050 --> 00:17:59.070
  • But they translated it to pale.
  • 00:17:59.070 --> 00:18:00.230
  • The New Revised Standard Version
  • 00:18:00.230 --> 00:18:03.100
  • of Revelation 6:8 got it right.
  • 00:18:03.100 --> 00:18:07.220
  • It says there, "I looked and there was a pale green horse.
  • 00:18:07.220 --> 00:18:12.070
  • "Its rider's name was Death, and Hades followed with him."
  • 00:18:12.070 --> 00:18:17.020
  • - Okay, so whoa, whoa, stop the presses.
  • 00:18:17.020 --> 00:18:19.250
  • So, we've looked at pale all these years,
  • 00:18:19.250 --> 00:18:24.220
  • trying to figure out these prophecies, and of course,
  • 00:18:24.220 --> 00:18:26.150
  • you just explained in a whole another light
  • 00:18:26.150 --> 00:18:29.080
  • to so many people.
  • 00:18:29.080 --> 00:18:31.010
  • So, what we're really looking for
  • 00:18:31.010 --> 00:18:33.040
  • is a green spirit, not pale,
  • 00:18:33.040 --> 00:18:35.160
  • and is there a green spirit alive in our world today?
  • 00:18:35.160 --> 00:18:38.240
  • I mean, if Catholicism is white, communism is red,
  • 00:18:38.240 --> 00:18:42.250
  • capitalism is black,
  • 00:18:42.250 --> 00:18:44.230
  • then whose official color is this green spirit?
  • 00:18:44.230 --> 00:18:48.030
  • - Great question, Dave.
  • 00:18:48.030 --> 00:18:49.180
  • A political book written by Mr. Daniel Pipes entitled
  • 00:18:49.180 --> 00:18:53.260
  • "Militant Islam Reaches America".
  • 00:18:53.260 --> 00:18:57.230
  • Pipes said, the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991
  • 00:18:57.230 --> 00:19:01.270
  • prompted loose talk about Islam replacing Marxism,
  • 00:19:03.100 --> 00:19:07.290
  • Leninism, or communism, as the West's necessary enemy.
  • 00:19:09.120 --> 00:19:13.040
  • In symbolic terms, it said that green, Islam's color,
  • 00:19:14.180 --> 00:19:18.190
  • had replaced red, communism's color,
  • 00:19:19.250 --> 00:19:23.180
  • in the West rogues' gallery.
  • 00:19:23.180 --> 00:19:26.270
  • Mr. Daniel Pipes goes on to say,
  • 00:19:26.270 --> 00:19:29.250
  • all of a sudden, the fear that we've had for Marxism,
  • 00:19:29.250 --> 00:19:34.030
  • the red power for years,
  • 00:19:34.030 --> 00:19:36.000
  • is now being replaced by the fear of the green power, Islam.
  • 00:19:36.000 --> 00:19:41.000
  • Many of the flags of Islamic countries
  • 00:19:43.290 --> 00:19:46.070
  • are predominantly green.
  • 00:19:46.070 --> 00:19:48.010
  • In Israel, an Islamic shop right outside the Temple Mount
  • 00:19:48.010 --> 00:19:51.260
  • had its trim painted green.
  • 00:19:51.260 --> 00:19:54.130
  • The fountain on the Temple Mount
  • 00:19:54.130 --> 00:19:56.150
  • where the Muslim worshipers wash their hands, feet, and face
  • 00:19:56.150 --> 00:20:00.120
  • before going into worship
  • 00:20:00.120 --> 00:20:01.280
  • has it has the wrought iron railing painted green .
  • 00:20:01.280 --> 00:20:05.270
  • During a Hamas parade,
  • 00:20:05.270 --> 00:20:08.010
  • the Islamic participants wore suicide belts
  • 00:20:08.010 --> 00:20:10.170
  • and waved green colored flags.
  • 00:20:10.170 --> 00:20:13.220
  • The doors and the gate entrances to the Temple Mount
  • 00:20:13.220 --> 00:20:17.100
  • are painted green, representing Islam.
  • 00:20:17.100 --> 00:20:21.070
  • Green is the official color of Islam.
  • 00:20:21.070 --> 00:20:25.070
  • It was Muhammad's favorite color.
  • 00:20:25.070 --> 00:20:29.030
  • - The name of the rider on the green horse was Death,
  • 00:20:29.030 --> 00:20:32.130
  • so, how does that pertain to Islam?
  • 00:20:32.130 --> 00:20:34.220
  • - Islam glorifies death.
  • 00:20:34.220 --> 00:20:37.230
  • They teach their children
  • 00:20:37.230 --> 00:20:39.080
  • from the time they are two years of age
  • 00:20:39.080 --> 00:20:41.170
  • that the highest calling in their life
  • 00:20:41.170 --> 00:20:44.010
  • is to become a martyr for Islam.
  • 00:20:44.010 --> 00:20:47.110
  • In return for martyrdom,
  • 00:20:47.110 --> 00:20:49.040
  • youths are promised immediate access to paradise,
  • 00:20:49.040 --> 00:20:52.120
  • and the attentions of 72 beautiful dark-eyed virgins.
  • 00:20:52.120 --> 00:20:57.010
  • One of the mothers of one suicide bomber
  • 00:20:57.010 --> 00:20:59.150
  • who blew up some of Jews while killing himself said,
  • 00:20:59.150 --> 00:21:04.010
  • "He would always dream of shahada,"
  • 00:21:04.010 --> 00:21:07.120
  • which was their word for martyrdom.
  • 00:21:07.120 --> 00:21:09.100
  • "It was his first and last goal in life.
  • 00:21:09.100 --> 00:21:13.020
  • "I told him, dear, we all want to be shaheeds.
  • 00:21:13.020 --> 00:21:17.080
  • "He said, in this entire world,
  • 00:21:17.080 --> 00:21:19.260
  • "I can't think of anyone to marry.
  • 00:21:19.260 --> 00:21:21.290
  • "I don't think of any of the girls of this world to marry.
  • 00:21:21.290 --> 00:21:25.090
  • "I want to marry the dark-eyed virgins of paradise.
  • 00:21:25.090 --> 00:21:30.090
  • "I said, if these are his thoughts,
  • 00:21:31.150 --> 00:21:33.290
  • "I wish him shahada.
  • 00:21:33.290 --> 00:21:36.070
  • "Praise to Allah, I hold my head high.
  • 00:21:36.070 --> 00:21:39.170
  • "The honor is mine.
  • 00:21:39.170 --> 00:21:41.010
  • "I have a son who is a shaheed.
  • 00:21:41.010 --> 00:21:44.260
  • "And not only is my son a shaheed,
  • 00:21:44.260 --> 00:21:48.120
  • "but all the shaheeds are my children.
  • 00:21:48.120 --> 00:21:51.220
  • "Praise Allah.
  • 00:21:51.220 --> 00:21:53.060
  • "The honor is mine, the pride is mine."
  • 00:21:53.060 --> 00:21:58.000
  • This perspective is not an exception in the Islamic faith.
  • 00:21:58.000 --> 00:22:02.240
  • In videos produced for their families,
  • 00:22:02.240 --> 00:22:05.020
  • before carrying out their missions, they say,
  • 00:22:05.020 --> 00:22:08.190
  • "I hope you're proud of me.
  • 00:22:08.190 --> 00:22:10.110
  • "I'm so excited to be a martyr for Allah."
  • 00:22:10.110 --> 00:22:14.110
  • After viewing the videos,
  • 00:22:14.110 --> 00:22:16.110
  • mothers and fathers of these suicide bombers
  • 00:22:16.110 --> 00:22:19.210
  • are known to dance and celebrate with pride.
  • 00:22:19.210 --> 00:22:23.160
  • Muslims are taught the only way
  • 00:22:23.160 --> 00:22:26.040
  • they can be sure of their salvation
  • 00:22:26.040 --> 00:22:28.070
  • is to become a martyr for Allah.
  • 00:22:28.070 --> 00:22:30.210
  • Yasser Arafat was quoted to have said,
  • 00:22:31.260 --> 00:22:34.110
  • "I hope someday to be a martyr for Allah."
  • 00:22:34.110 --> 00:22:38.190
  • Islam is a culture of death.
  • 00:22:38.190 --> 00:22:42.120
  • The rider of the green horse was named Death.
  • 00:22:42.120 --> 00:22:46.280
  • This belief system that praises suicide in the name of Allah
  • 00:22:48.100 --> 00:22:52.090
  • is in direct opposition to what the Bible teaches.
  • 00:22:52.090 --> 00:22:55.090
  • The Bible teaches those who commit murder
  • 00:22:55.090 --> 00:22:58.200
  • will have their part in the lake of fire.
  • 00:22:58.200 --> 00:23:01.190
  • Revelation 6:8 says, hell followed the rider
  • 00:23:01.190 --> 00:23:05.130
  • of the green horse, not paradise.
  • 00:23:05.130 --> 00:23:09.140
  • - You know, these prophecies are coming to pass
  • 00:23:09.140 --> 00:23:11.120
  • in such intricate detail.
  • 00:23:11.120 --> 00:23:13.210
  • I mean, Revelation 6:8 even says the green horse spirit
  • 00:23:13.210 --> 00:23:16.270
  • will have power over a fourth part of the earth.
  • 00:23:16.270 --> 00:23:20.210
  • And it's estimated that there are about
  • 00:23:20.210 --> 00:23:22.060
  • 1.8 billion Muslims on the earth today.
  • 00:23:22.060 --> 00:23:25.010
  • The total population of the world is around 7.5 billion.
  • 00:23:25.010 --> 00:23:29.150
  • That's almost exactly 1/4 of the world's population, Irvin.
  • 00:23:29.150 --> 00:23:34.090
  • - The prophecies are right on, Dave.
  • 00:23:34.090 --> 00:23:36.150
  • The prophecy says Islam
  • 00:23:36.150 --> 00:23:38.080
  • will have power to kill with the sword.
  • 00:23:38.080 --> 00:23:41.270
  • Islam's favorite form of killing is beheading.
  • 00:23:41.270 --> 00:23:46.140
  • Here's a quote from the Islamic perspective.
  • 00:23:46.140 --> 00:23:50.220
  • "Power was given to the green spirit to kill with hunger."
  • 00:23:50.220 --> 00:23:55.220
  • 96% of Muslims are from Africa and from South Asia,
  • 00:23:57.040 --> 00:24:01.070
  • the most poverty-stricken,
  • 00:24:01.070 --> 00:24:03.270
  • hunger-afflicted parts of the world.
  • 00:24:03.270 --> 00:24:07.010
  • The prophecy of the green horse occurs at the fourth seal.
  • 00:24:07.010 --> 00:24:11.290
  • The fifth seal is the Great Tribulation.
  • 00:24:13.030 --> 00:24:15.270
  • The green horse era, the era of prominence of Islam,
  • 00:24:15.270 --> 00:24:20.090
  • is supposed to occur right before the Great Tribulation.
  • 00:24:20.090 --> 00:24:25.090
  • This prophecy reveals we are approaching the time
  • 00:24:26.150 --> 00:24:29.090
  • of the Great Tribulation right now.
  • 00:24:29.090 --> 00:24:32.270
  • - Okay, so, let me get this straight.
  • 00:24:32.270 --> 00:24:35.100
  • You're saying that the first four seals
  • 00:24:35.100 --> 00:24:37.250
  • have already been opened.
  • 00:24:37.250 --> 00:24:40.070
  • That's gonna mess with
  • 00:24:40.070 --> 00:24:41.230
  • some people's theology there a little bit, but you know,
  • 00:24:41.230 --> 00:24:43.280
  • that's opening a huge can of worms.
  • 00:24:43.280 --> 00:24:45.290
  • We may get to that in another program.
  • 00:24:45.290 --> 00:24:48.070
  • But, close out the program for us, Irvin.
  • 00:24:48.070 --> 00:24:51.240
  • - Well, yes.
  • 00:24:51.240 --> 00:24:53.250
  • I am saying that the first four seals have now been opened.
  • 00:24:53.250 --> 00:24:56.290
  • We're in the era of the fourth seal right now.
  • 00:24:56.290 --> 00:24:59.120
  • The fifth seal is the Great Tribulation.
  • 00:24:59.120 --> 00:25:02.060
  • So, we can see that we are in the era immediately preceding
  • 00:25:02.060 --> 00:25:07.060
  • the Great Tribulation.
  • 00:25:07.280 --> 00:25:09.230
  • This demonstrates that we are in the end time right now.
  • 00:25:09.230 --> 00:25:14.210
  • We have a brochure called, "What Do You Mean, Born Again?"
  • 00:25:16.020 --> 00:25:19.170
  • You can get a copy of it right now.

  • - [Male Announcer] Many Christians admit,
