What Does the Red Horse in Revelation Stand For?
The red horse stands for the persecuted early church under the Roman empire. The reason early Christians were persecuted so heavily was because they didn't identify with Jews who had governmental protection and they didn't participate in national events that went against their culture. They were accused of incest for referring to each other as "brother" and "sister" but holding Agape love feasts in private. They were maimed, lynched, burned alive and endured it all so us Christians today could have the Word of God.
