295-5 Notice. But now, on this here, we find that this fellow here is an eagle, this man that, or this living creature that's poured forth here now. Or in other words, there's four different ages of it. There was an age of the lion. And we find out that this being the fourth age... And he said, "Come and see the fourth mystery of the Book of Redemption that's been hidden in this Book. Come, see." And John went to see, and he saw a pale horse and again the same rider upon this pale horse. Now, he has a name called death.
Now, notice, none of the other rider... None of the other horses or no time that this rider ever rode, they didn't have--that man had no name, but now he is called death. It's not mentioned. See? He's revealed now what he is--is death. Well, how we could linger on that for a sermon and make it real plain. But anything that's anti, that's against the real, has to be death because there's only two subjects: that's life and death. And that proves that the Holy Spirit's revelation of this in this day is exactly the Truth. The anti, he's death, because the Word (as we'll see later here) is Life. See? And this man is called death. Now, it was not mentioned of the other times of this rider. But since... Now, it is mentioned that he's called death.

300-5 See the rider? The first place, as an antichrist he was death to begin with, but he's innocent then. Then he received a crown, a triple one, and when he did, then he united... Satan united his church and state, because he was over both of them then. Antichrist was Satan in the form of a man.
And then also Saint Matthew, I believe it is, the 4th chapter, tells us that--that Satan took Jesus, our Lord, up and showed Him the kingdoms of the world, all of them, in a moment of time, and the glory of them, offered them to Him, and he said that they--they were his.
So, you see then, if he can unite his state and his church together, then the red horse rider could ride sure enough. See? Truly.
Now, then we find out his mystery here in his church and state. The fourth stage of his ministry, he's called the beast. First he's called the antichrist (See?), then he's called false prophet, and he's called the beast. Now, we find him here being called as the beast.
Now, I want you to notice that's after the fourth horse, and in this fourth horse, if you'll notice, all... The first one was white, and then the next one was red, and the next one was black, and the fourth one... All of these other three was represented in it, because pale is red and--and white and so mixed together. See? He... It's--it's all mixed in this one horse. See? And there he become four, or actually the three in one, and it was all mixed up in that one thing.
Now, I want you to notice the four of them. Notice the off-mark of four of the spiritual mathematics. God is threes. This is four. He's in four here. First, antichrist, white; second, false prophet, red; third, vicar of heavens and earth and--and purgatory, black; fourth, the beast, pale horse, Satan being kicked out of heaven. You want to read that? Revelations 12:13, Satan being kicked out of heaven...
Then in Revelations 13:1-8, he is incarnate in the person of the beast. He's first the antichrist, just--just a teaching called Nicolaitia; then he becomes from that to a false prophet. If he's an antichrist, antichrist is against. Anything that's against God's Word is against God, because the Word is God.
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was made flesh, Christ, and dwelt among us." And now, he is against the Word, so he'd be antichrist; but a spirit cannot be crowned. That's the reason he didn't receive a crown, just a bow with no arrows.
301-8 And then when he come to crowning time, then he become the false prophet of his antichrist teaching. Get it? Then he gets a sword, because he unites his powers together; then he don't have to ask nobody. He's governor of state; he's governor of heaven: receives a triple crown, makes himself an idea called purgatory, where if--if some of them died back there, and they got some money they want to pay them out, he can pray them out of it, 'cause he's got the power to do so. He's a vicar. Certainly he is. He takes the place of God on earth. If that ain't as plain as anything...
We find it, pull it on down through the Bible and count his numeral numbers and everything else. Here he is; play him up back here in number four, not number three, number four. See?
Now, let's turn, Revelations 12. Let's just read this just a little bit 'cause we--we'll have time to do it. And let's read Revelations the--the 12th chapter and the 13th verse.
And the same hour there was a great earthquake... (No, I got the--I got the wrong place, the 13th)
And when the dragon saw that he was cast out into the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
302-3 Now, you see, he was cast out of the earth and becomes incarnate. As the antichrist spirit become incarnate into a man, that man changes from one thing to another, from an antichrist spirit to a false prophet, and then the beast comes into him.
Just exactly like the church grows. His church went from--from antichrist to false prophet, and in the great age to come the beast that is to rise up, so the church comes the same way, through justification, sanctification, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost as Christ being in the people, just exactly. And he's got the antetype of it over there, the (See?), the type of it, rather. There he is just exactly. That's him: kicked out of heaven.

307-4 Notice, the antichrist was on a pale horse, mixed color. A horse is a beast that represents a power. His power is all mixed up. Why? It's politics; it's--it's national powers; it's religious powers; it's demon powers; it's all kinds of powers mixed together, a mixed pale horse was. He's got all kinds of powers.
But when Jesus comes, it's on a one solid colored horse--the Word. Amen. This one mixes its colors of red, white, black. Three colors in one--represented in one, and three powers represented in one: a white horse, a black horse, red horse, and three crowns in one. See? Sure.
I seen the crown myself--stood, oh, that close and looked at it. Wouldn't let me get to it on account of the glass. So there it was, a big lock on it, setting in a case, triple crown; so I know it's the truth. So there he was--triple crown. Vicar of heaven, purgatory, and earth. Three powers united together, see, all mixed up in a color, pale. Death spoke in a whole thing. Political, and--and religious, and--and demon powers mixed together. Politics, he is the king of politics; Satan is. Smart? Whew. Sure, don't try to outwit him; just trust the Lord.
