Vision of The Pale Green Horse?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on February 6, 2011

Were we able to see a ghostly green pale horse and rider across the screen during a live MSNBC newscast from Egypt last Friday?

While watching the above video coverage of the protests in Egypt one can see what appears to be a skeletal man on horseback, covered in some sort of cloth that is blowing in the wind. What really makes this odd is the green color of the figure, and how it seems to ride through the crowd before the camera cuts away.

“I looked and there was a pale green horse! Its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed with him; they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, famine, and pestilence, and by the wild animals of the earth.” (Rev 6:8)

The flag of the former United Arab Republic (left) has the colors of all four horsemen. The two green stars represent Egypt and Syria (remember that the last horse was green and had two riders). The United Arab Republic was a single sovereign country from 1958 to 1961, when Syria seceded from the union. Even after the succession, however, Syria and Egypt remained united; in 1967 they fought together in Six-Day War against Israel. Looking at the map, it does not take a genius to figure out what one main goal of a United Arab Republic would be. I do not know if the United Arab Republic will come back to life, but it is interesting to speculate on.

And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Lord, the LORD of hosts. – Isaiah 19:4
