Re: The 4th horseman?
I too disagree that the first rider is connected with righteousness. I could just as easily portray 1) the color white and 2) crowns in Revelation to be symbolic of "overcoming" (which is what I think they symbolize) as you can of "righteousness", and thus could conclude just as easily as you (though I would conclude differently) that the first rider personifies (in the likeness of war, famine, and death) something un-righteous riding forth to victory (cf. 11:7; 13:7), such as dissension between Rome and the Jews. But this is just my opinion, and by no means will I die on this hill, or rub raw the bond of friendship over something that can so easily go both ways. Peace.
