It's an incredible vision: four cryptic horsemen galloping across the sky. What does it mean? For centuries, Bible scholars understood this passage to be historical in its fulfillment--it covers the broad stretch of history from the early apostolic church to the second coming of Christ. All the events of this amazing prophecy are God's way of assuring us that history is progressing according to schedule. The next event we can expect, in the list of events given in Revelation 6, is the day of the Lord and the return of Jesus Christ. We are living now between verses 13 and 14 of this incredible prophecy!
