The Fourth Seal: A Pale Horse2

And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
- Revelation 6:7-8

There have been more and more reports of animals killing people...Bears , Sharks, Dogs , etc

From "THE FOUR HORSEMEN OF THE APOCALYPSE and THE TWO WITNESSES" by JAH.

The fourth horseman of the Apocalypse rode a pale horse. "And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was DEATH, and HELL(fire) followed with him. And power was given unto them (the four horsemen) over the fourth part (1/4) of the earth, to kill with sword (weapons), and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth." This horseman rode on a pale/sick horse (sickly GREEN in the Greek original text). The fourth horseman represents pollution and nature dying (sickly green) with famines; pestilences and plagues brought about by climatic changes caused by deforestation and pollution.

A quarter of the earth are killed by wars; famines; and with disasters; and with the beasts of the earth (diseases and plagues etc. carried by the beasts of the earth).

Hell-fire followed WITH him (Death), because, due to unjust and unfair trading getting people to grow money crops, instead of food, and causing deforestation and desertification of many regions creates hunger, and hunger causes war, war comes and then the REAPING of mankind with Hell-fire.

Elephants are just like people... They get pissed at something they don't like and throw a fit, and then cool off and take a breather and go back to normal... Some are good and some are bad...

I like Asian Elephants more than African ones...

African Elephants do some nasty stuff, like throw poo... lol

This is a good read if you are just reading some info on the 4 horsemen. Short pdf. It relates how the Chinese cosmology and the colors of the horsemen line up. Interesting reading.... 

 https://www.metmuseum.org/pubs/journals/1/pdf/1512732.pdf.bannered.pdf

The pale horse is pale green or ashen colored. The color of death. Green... My favorite color too. 

https://www.quora.com/What-color-horses-do-each-of-the-Four-Horsemen-of-the-Apocalypse-ride

Snippet: Only this Rider is identified by name: Death. He is followed by Hell, the destination of the dead. His color, in the original Koine Greek, is given as χλωρός, which can mean “pale green” or “ashen,” and seems to typify the color of a corpse. 

http://www.cgg.org/index.cfm/fuseaction/Library.sr/CT/PW/k/933/The-Four-Horsemen-Pale-Horse.htm

Snippet: First, the horse's coat is a unique and otherworldly pale. The Greek word is chlooros, which we recognize as the origin of such English words as "chlorine," "chloroform," and "chlorophyll." It technically refers to a greenish-yellow color found in nature in the pale green of just-sprouted grass or new leaves (see Mark 6:39; Revelation 8:7; 9:4; these are chlooros' only other occurrences in the New Testament).

Secular Greek writers, however, did not confine chlooros just to sprouting plants. In The Iliad, Homer describes fearful men's faces with this term, suggesting a pallid, ashen color, and in other instances, it is the pale golden color of honey or the gray bark of an olive tree. Sophocles writes that it is the color of sand, while Thucydides applies it to the skin color of those suffering from plague.

It is this last description that is probably John's intended meaning; the color of the horse reminded him of the pale, greenish-gray color of a corpse or decaying flesh. The Phillips translation renders chlooros as "sickly green in color"; the New English and the Revised English Bibles, as "sickly pale"; the New Jerusalem Bible, as "deathly pale"; and the New Living Translation, as "pale green like a corpse." The fourth horse sports a coat only producers of horror movies would love!

Upon the back of this gruesome beast sits one whose name is "Death." This is another unique feature of this horseman, as none of the others receives a name. The Greek word is the normal word for "death," thánatos, suggesting on the surface a generic application of the term. However, this would be jumping to a conclusion, for the term is probably meant to be understood more specifically as "pestilence" or "disease."

The evidence for this meaning here derives primarily from the Greek translation of the Old Testament called the Septuagint. In several places, the Septuagint translators rendered the Hebrew word deber, meaning "pestilence" or "disease," as thánatos. For instance, in Exodus 5:3, Moses and Aaron tell Pharaoh, "Please let us go three days' journey into the desert and sacrifice to the Lord our God, lest He fall upon us with pestilence [Hebrew deber; Greek thánatos] or with the sword." This combination of translations also occurs in the fifth plague, that of the murrain or cattle disease: God tells Moses to inform Pharaoh, "There will be a very severe pestilence" (Exodus 9:3; see also verse 15). In a later instance, God warns Judah through Jeremiah, "I will send . . . pestilence among them, till they are consumed from the land that I gave to them and their fathers" (Jeremiah 24:10).

The most convincing piece of evidence for thánatos meaning "pestilence" in this passage comes from the mouth of our Savior in the Olivet Prophecy, as He describes the events leading up to His return. He prophesies to His disciples, "And there will be famines [third seal or horseman], pestilences [fourth seal or horseman], and earthquakes in various places" (Matthew 24:7). He does not use thánatos but loimós, which literally means "pestilence" or "disease." Once Jesus Himself weighs in, there is no argument. The pale rider brings death by disease.

Second snippet from above link: A final, curious factor is the inclusion of "by the beasts of the earth" in the powers of the horsemen; it seems to come out of the blue. However, it follows naturally in the progression of catastrophes. In times of severe war, famine, and disease, depopulation occurs, which upsets the precarious balance between human civilization and wildlife. Suddenly, with hunting and developing of wilderness areas reduced or eliminated, the population of predatory creatures expands, increasing the chances of animal attacks on humans.

The Bible provides an example of this in Genesis 10:8-9. It is thought that Nimrod's rise to power over the post-Flood world began with his skills in hunting and killing predators, which had the upper hand over the miniscule human population at the time. Another example appears in Exodus 23:29, in which God promises Israel, "I will not drive [the Canaanites] out from before you in one year, lest the land become too desolate and the beasts of the field become too numerous for you" (see also Deuteronomy 7:22; Ezekiel 34:25, 28). Incursions of lions actually killed some Samaritans after Assyria took the bulk of the Israelites into captivity (II Kings 17:25).

Wild beasts are included in the curses for disobedience of Leviticus 26: "I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, destroy your livestock, and make you few in number; and your highways shall be desolate" (verse 22; see Deuteronomy 32:24; Jeremiah 15:3; Ezekiel 14:15). Through Ezekiel, God prophesies that disasters such as the Four Horsemen bring happen together with the scourge of wild beasts: "So I will send against you famine and wild beasts, and they will bereave you. Pestilence and blood shall pass through you, and I will bring the sword against you. I, the Lord, have spoken" (Ezekiel 5:17; see 14:21; 33:27). Though death by wild beasts is included in the text of Revelation 6:8 without warning, it fits nonetheless.

That flesh eating disease people are catching from the ocean... It's a fish disease. https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/deadly-bacteria-spread-across-oceans-as-water-temperatures-rise/

7 page pdf on vibrio related diseases. In aquaculture.... https://www.omicsonline.org/vibrio-related-diseases-in-aquaculture-and-development-of-rapid-and-accurate-identification-methods-2155-9910.S1-002.pdf

And I never heard of it until recently too. Grew up on the coast. The red tide just started when I was a teenager, mid 1970s. It's also deadly and has now able to be spread by the water droplets in the air. Way back when, no one was affected by it and now... people are allergic to it and have all types of reactions when it comes in. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2683400/

Lots of stuff in the water now. And the animals would be effected by all this stuff too. As these diseases and bacteria kill off their food stock, these animals, which are carnivorous and got teeth, will turn to other food sources. If that is a human swimming in their area or a fishing boat that doesn't have any fish to give it..... Might just find themselves on the menu. A whale can roll a boat over if it wants to. Bigger than the boat and it's at ease in the water. A boat is a clumsy thing really. Just floats around, wobbles with the waves. Sinks...

I think the beasts of the earth are the cryptos created at Dulce and other places around the world. There probably will be some violence from animals but beasts are way worse than animal behavior.
