8 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.
and hell followed with him: that is, the grave, which attended on death, or followed after him, and was a sort of an undertaker, to bury the dead killed by death; so these two are put together, ( Revelation 1:18 ) ( Revelation 20:13 Revelation 20:14 ) ;
There is no book in the New Testament called Revelations. There is only Revelation. The four horsemen are as follows: Revelation 6:1-8 gives you detail and is a good read on understand what is happening. I would recommend reading about the seven seals.The horsemen riding the white horse will is the conqueror.The Red horse will carry war.The black horse will carry famine.Upon the pale horse will ride Death and Hades follows.
And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider's name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth.
Sazonov followed him on the tribune. He was pale and nervous. From the very outset he cleared his conscience: \"When history brings the day of unbiased judgment I am convinced it will justify us.\" He vigorously reminded his audience that \"it was not Russian policy which imperilled the peace of the world,\" and that if Germany had so desired she could \"with one word, one authoritative word,\" have stopped Austria in her bellicose career. Then in warm tones he exalted \"magnanimous France, chivalrous France which has risen at our side in the defence of right and justice.\" At these words all the deputies rose, turned towards me and gave round after round of cheers for France. All the same I observed that the cheers were not very enthusiastic on the benches occupied by the Left: the liberal parties have never forgiven us for prolonging the life of Tsarism by our financial subsidies.
And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword ... And I looked and beheld 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.
WE, the above named witnesses of the LastWill and Testament of the Springfield Presbytery, knowing that there will be many conjectures respecting the causes which have occasioned the dissolution of that body think proper to testify, that from its first existence it was knit together in love, lived in peace and concord, and died a voluntary and happy death.
The following letter was written by Elder David Purviance, but a few months before his death. The writer believes, it was the last effort, he ever made with his pen. We look upon it as the dying testimony of an honest man, in favor of that book by the precepts of which he had been governed for the last threescore years. He had hung upon its promises and on them he was willing to risk his souls eternal salvation.
He continued to reside on his farm near Dayton, until after the death of his wife, which took place on the 8th of May, 1835. She was an amiable and excellent woman, and was truly a help suitable for him, and assisted him much by her advice and encouragement to duty, and also, by her economical life at home.** There is no earthly blessing, on which the success and usefulness of a preacher so much depends, as a good wife. She prompts him to faithfulness; always has his clothes ready in time, so that he can meet his appointments. She hears him preach as often as she consistently can. In meekness she corrects his mistakes, and shows him where he might have bettered his sermon and made it more interesting and useful. When he leaves home to preach, he feels that he is followed by the prayers and well wishes of his wife. He rests easy concerning his children and family, knowing that the steward of his house is a good wife. He knows she will never unnecessarily, run him in debt, but will be frugal and industrious. She shares his toils. and will reap her reward.
What sort of a night was it - A fine moon-light night, as bright as day: I never saw either of the four men before to my knowledge: they were going to strip me; they were getting off this coat, but somebody disturbed them; I believe it was a man on horseback; and they went off, they went toward Chelsea again; they had taken this hat, which I have, and when I got up I begged my hat very hard; I got out of the ditch, and asked for my hat; and one of them turned back and d - d my eyes, and swore he would kill me if I did not turn my head the other way; while I was in the ditch I begged for mercy, and to have my watch; and one man said, d - n my eyes I will take and kill you if you say another word; I just turned myself round, and they were on the full run; and I picked up my hat, and ran after them, to see which way they went; I followed them till I came to the green, there I lost sight of them; not till then; just over the stile I lost sight of them; and the blood poured down, that I really got faint and weak, and I returned home.
Gentlemen of the Jury. This is an indictment against the two prisoners at the bar, for stealing the various articles you have just heard enumerated by the officer of the Court, the property of the Countess of Berghausen; and, Gentlemen, it must be confessed that the Countess has acted very imprudently in this business; in order to explain which I must trouble you with a short part of the countess's history: Gentlemen, this lady married the Reverend Mr. Henley, who, some time after after their marriage, unfortunately became a lunatic; after which the prisoner Loy, alias Molloy, who represented himself to be a major in the Irish volunteers, got acquainted with the countess, and took every opportunity to ingratiate himself into her favour; and they lived some time together as husband and wife; he told her he was a gentleman of rank and family, and had a high station in India, and wished her to accompany him thither, which she consented to, after some persuasion, but upon condition that he would sign an instrument in ten thousand pounds penaltry; binding himself to treat her in all respects in every sense of the word, as the fond, tender, and affectionate wife of his heart; the phrase in the instrument, which I will repeat; is the fond, tender, and affectionate wife of his heart; and he was to treat her in every respect in a manner due to her exalted rank and station: this bond was executed, and they soon set sail for India, and although she always supplied him with cash, yet as soon as he got her on board, he treated her most brutally: after they arrived at India, they lived together for some time, but his treatment was such, she was obliged to separate from him: after living some time time apart, he again renewed his addresses to the countess, and prevailed on her to return to him: after some time, Gentlemen, he represented to her, that he had received advices from England that her husband was dead, and that it was fit they should come to England, which they accordingly did; and he then expected that of course she would then make him her husband; but this, in consequence of his repeated ill treatment of her, she was not very disposed to do: however, she after some time consented; when they arrived in London, they took a house and servants; and then the major who had, as it appears, kept up a criminal correspondence with the other prisoner Goldsborough, introduced her to the countess as his cousin; he had before talked of her as his cousin, who had lived in the family of Sir Cecil Wray , where the other prisoner Payne was a footman: Gentlemen, on the last day of the last year, the countess was prevailed upon to go out of town to a relation at Norwich, and the major and she went in their own carriage; but very soon after they set out, Mr. Molloy thought it more agreeable to ride on horseback, and took an opportunity of examining the mind of the prisoner Payne, to know whether him and the other servants had any disinclination to a new mistress; he found Payne a proper tool for his purpose: Gentlemen, when they came to Norwich, he used her so ill, that she suspected he had some design against her life; they separated and came to London; and at Ingatestone Mr. Molloy proposed that the countess should come to town in a stage coach that was passing; she consented, a place was taken, and she got into it; he was to have come on horseback, but he got into another stage coach, and took all her luggage out of the coach, and put it into his own; he told the countess, that as they probably should be verySee originallate in London, it would be better to sleep at the inn where the stage coach should stop; she made no objection, in this way they arrived in London, when she came to London, the countess from discovering that her luggage had been gone, was alarmed; she went to her own house; when she came there, she learned, that the circumstance I am now about to state to you, had taken place on the last day of the old year: and major having written a letter to Goldsborough, under the name of Miffin, she and Payne went to the countess's house: Mrs. Goldsborough was described as the cousin of Mr. Molloy; she said, she came there to take care of the house; and the other prisoner was to take care of her; the very first thing she did, as she told a woman that was there, that she wanted to look into the rooms; that person, whose name was Mrs. Rich, told her, she believed she could not do that, for they were locked; says she, I have a key that will open them; in which was all this property; she took some tri
