Wayne Watson wrote a song about the watercolor ponies his daughter painted and proudly displayed on the refrigerator door in their kitchen. It’s a sweet and sentimental song, but not anywhere close to what the apostle John sees in a prophetic vision while on the island of Patmos. 


Picture four horses colored white, black, red, and pale green with riders mounted on each. Don’t be deceived. They are hardly from the imagination of a young schoolgirl. Instead, they deliver massive destruction, drought, and death to planet earth. 


I wish the four horsemen of the apocalypse were merely watercolor ponies (Revelation 6). But the reliable pages of Bible prophecy say otherwise, preparing us for the Second Coming of Jesus.
