Pale Rider in Egypt - Debunked


This video was submitted by several different Rap-Con users, which we initially rejected. It's obviously not the "Pale Rider" (one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse) referred to in Revelation. But, I decided to go ahead and post the video and debunk it.

Here's the video:
[video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnWo1kbu5QE]

This image, while a bit creepy if you first read the video title, is nothing more than a lens flare on the camera from the fire it is recording. The "pale rider" moves in direct correlation to the camera motion, and there are other visual aberrations that also move in concert.

I think we (prophecy watchers in particular) can easily get caught up in these types of things and ignore our better judgment because we are actively looking for the "signs of the end." It's almost like we want them to be true, causing us to sometimes miss the obvious.

The interest this video, and similar UFO videos we are seeing lately, shows that there is increasing interest in end times events, as well as the paranormal. Hopefully we can help lead people to the truth by shedding light on them.

mrhenry's analysis:
This video is obviously much ado about nothing, but people are looking this stuff up, so I want Rap-con to come up in the search results for it.

false video

The four horseman come after the rapture of the church, so this is not real period. We will only be watching this from the big screen in Heaven...

exactly. there is an order

exactly. there is an order to things as laid out in Daniel/Revelations, etc. Yet, every time some event happens, we hear the "could this be ?" question. For example, when the Gulf of Mexico oil spill happened, people were asking "could this be wormwood?".

I agree

I agree - this could not possibly be the pale horse of the apocalypse. There are 3 missing before it. Besides we will be watching from heaven by the time any of them show up. Praise God! I am thankful for the fact that it has those I love asking questions. It has given God the opportunity to use me to help guide them in the right direction. After watching this video, my husband had many questions that I had the privilege of answering for him. We sat and read the Bible together - a first for us :-)

FALSE VIDEO

I agree, ultimately we have to look at what the word says; and this does not match the word.....

...the Maitreya camp. This was in the news in London:

"According to Benjamin Creme's Master, the UFO in Jerusalem was one of the four 'stars' seen around the world since December 2008 that herald Maitreya's open emergence. He also confirms that the Rider on the White Horse was a blessing from Maitreya to show the immensity of what the Egyptian people are doing, and that he is with them in their struggle for justice and freedom. Maitreya has often appeared as the Rider on a White Horse - an age-old symbol for a teacher to come. Many now expect the return of their awaited Teacher, whether they call him the Christ, Messiah, the fifth Buddha, Krishna, Kalki Avatar or the Imam Mahdi."

Matthew 24:24 For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.

Maitreya

I can't believe that there are people who actually take this guy seriously. Luckily he doesnt seem to have much of a presence or following around here.

To be rational

Seriously?! I don't see a horseman at all. It is the reflection of the flames on the camera lens. Like Mr.Henry said, it moves with the camera. Besides, the horsemen of the apocalypse is an event seen in the heavens, after Jesus said to John, "Come up here." I don't think the people on the earth at the time, will see an actual horseman riding across the earth.

It mirrors the flames. In

It mirrors the flames. In fact, if you look at only the flames you will see the exact same shape. We wrestle against things unseen, true, but this is supposedly something seen...I mean really. What would be the purpose of showing up now? Who would it supposedly be? It is for certain NOT the pale rider of revelation...we don't know the identity of the antichrist, who is the first rider, so we know this is not in reference to revelation.
I suppose if it spurs something up in someone to "see" something in the video and they look to God's word, then good. God can work all things for the good for those who love him (Rom 8:28)
Either way, it is okay. Keep looking up! :)

tru indeed i do agree with you .. but could it possibly be we caught a glimpse of the spirit world? i do not believe it's the pale rider or any of the horsemen for that matter..but maybe it could have been one of satan's demons inciting the crowd... anyone who is not saved can be used by the enemy right? satan is the prince of the air, right? i dunno just throwing out there,lol. looking for our Saviour! :)

The only reason I do not

The only reason I do not think it is a glimpse into the spiritual realm is because it mirrors the flames. The fire gives off quite a brightness in the evening sky and it is obviously just a glare. If the flames were not there, and the image still appeared, then maybe, possibly, it could be a visible demonic thing.
Given the times, who knows?!
May Our Savior come quickly!
