I JOHN saw the four Horsemen

WHITE HORSE with its Conquering King

Long Bow and a Golden Crown of course

HE came to conquer Earth & Everything !


RED HORSE with its Warrior Mount

A Might Sword for to destroy Earth's Peace

His Flashing Sword ~ left nothing to account

Men killing Men ~ and Laws & Order cease !


BLACK HORSE its Rider rode to Judge

His Scales were balanced with uneven switch

NO WHEAT for the Starving POOR

WINE & VIRGIN OIL for all the RICH


PALE GREEN HORSE ~ with pallor of the DEAD

Famine & Pestilence from this Rider pour

His name is DEATH ~ with SKULL for HEAD

A Quarter of all folk were DEAD ~ their blood out-poured ! 


Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love BRIAN XOX


The PROPHECY by JOHN when he looked into the Future

is recorded in the Book of Revelation ~ which completes 

the NEW TESTAMENT !  It makes uncomfortable reading

but when we predict conditions in the 22nd C (2100)

some of the forecasts parallel John's Vision ~ AMEN !

Read the Book of Revelation for yourself and you will

see how much of it parallels conditions on EARTH today !

    Good one Brian, we should always be aware of the Four Horsemen.


      Thanks ANDY ~ To me the BOOK of REVELATION is a fitting climax to the BIBLE ~ In the Beginning God ~ In Between God and In the End God ! People find it difficult but as an Evangelical and an Environmentalist I accept it by Faith and find it all makes sense ! I could still be alive in 2100 (117 !) so I have a vested interest what things might be like ~ for ME ~ and not just my future GRANDCHILDREN ! Studying the Book of Revelation in a Home Group Bible Study ~ I found a very exciting experience ~ AMEN Thanks for your comment ! I've added the Shadows version of "Ghost Riders in the Sky" as backing music ~ please revisit ! Yours as always BRIAN

        My very first album was "The Shadows" it was the only one with the original line-up of Hank Marvin, Bruce Welch, Jet Harris and Tony Meehan, their second album "Out of the Shadows" had Brian Bennett as the drummer, I still have both LPs.

        A fine and true write Brian. We have to unravel the symbolisms and visions, but unfortunately it's all relevant. Though 'fortune' or 'luck' does not come into it really.

        • BRIAN & ANGELA

          Yeas indeed ANDY ~ Biblical Prophesies of the END TIMES do not make easy reading ! I could still be alive in 2100 (117 !) so I have a vested interest ! I am a BIBLICAL SCHOLAR (Open Learning) and also an Environmentalist (It is legal !) so I have some understanding of the Book of Revelation and its application to "Life on Planet earth in the 21st C" and future predictions ! As CHRISTIANS we have a more optimistic view of our future because we have assurance of Eternal Life in Heaven ~ AMEN ~ Yours BRIAN

        • Michael Edwards

          And I'm not disappointed - super work Brian.

          • BRIAN & ANGELA

            Thanks MICHAEL ~ Pleased it met with you approval ! When I saw the picture I wrote the poem to complement it ! The choice of background music was more difficult ! I love the Shadows and there is a version of GRITS on their CD set. I preferred it without "words" and the video is excellent. There is a painting towards the end of Three Horses ~ White Red & Green which fits my Poem ~ you have to imagine the BLACK ONE ! In retrospect I am pleased ~ for me it is Holy Ground ~ and I give myself an "A" ~ Yours in appreciation BRIAN

            • Michael Edwards

              'A' endorsed.

            • Fay Slimm.

              John's vision assures us that God will arrange the troubled finalé of those who do not support global peace. The four horsemen typify power to correct faithless pride and their ride is described as very exciting. Thanks for sharing the Shadows with us too - a memorable number.of theirs.

              • BRIAN & ANGELA

                Thanks FAY ~ Pleased it all came together in a positive way for You ! Personally I felt the musical version of GRITS was perfect especially by the SHADOWS ~ The words are not appropriate but some of the visuals (in the video) were excellent ~ especially the one towards the end showing three horses On White ~ One Red ~ One Green ~ perfect ! Yours as ever BRIAN & ANGELA XOX

                Very good write, Brian. It does make for uncomfortable reading but it does parallel our world, you are correct! Great job!

                • BRIAN & ANGELA

                  GRACIAS CHRISTINA ~ Yes REVELATION is a very important Book in the BIBLE to enable us to anticipate and understand the END TIMES ! But when we look at the NEWS of the WORLD we realise that all the Prophesies are coming true ! Please you enjoyed it ~ Abrazos Grandes ~ Tus Hermanos ~ Angela y Brian @@@@@@@

                  Mio Caro Amico BRIAN,
                  Veramente una bella poesia!
                  Loved the “Ghost Riders in the Sky” clip!
                  Of course, I have heard Johnny Cash sing it! One of my favorites!
                  A fine write to be read more than once!
                  Thank you for sharing!
                  Abbracci e Baci per te ed Angela...

                • BRIAN & ANGELA

                  CAIO LAURA ~ Nostra Cara Amica ~ Pleased you liked it ! I felt the Picture ~ Poem ~ Music all complemented each other. Some of the images in the video were stunning and very apposite ! The BOOK of REVELATION IS IMPORTANT in understanding the Spiritual aspects of the End of the World as distinct from its Material & Cosmological end Abracci e Baci con Amore ~ Angela e Brian XOX
