How does God, Destroy?

Comment received:
 Genesis 19:14-26 and other Biblical scriptures, portray Jehovah as a God of Destruction. He sent fire to rain down on Sodom and Gomorrah.

My Reply:
Yes, we do find scriptures where God is credited with causing destruction. If we do not look below the surface, we may ascribe to God directly, that destruction and ruin. If you are willing to derive truth from the Bible, about what is really happening, I offer it to you, below.
Please consider a few points from the Bible. As you learn from all these points, you will see the truth that lays below the surface.
We know that God allows the persecution of His servants. He is the Great Judge that oversees, everything (Dan.7:9,10,21-22,26-27). Whatever He does not permit, does not happen. Yet He allows, whatever is within His justice and will. 

What God permits, includes the testing and refining of His own sons, through Satanic persecution (1Pet. 1:6; 5:10; James 1:2,12;  1Thess. 3:2-4). Satan has demanded to test out any heirs that would replace the Devil's dominion over creation (Luke 22:31). Persecution is through Satan, and God allows it. God is not the source of what His sons must endure. 

We know that it was Satan who caused great pain and trouble to the faithful man Job. 
Yet, who was credited with Job's trials?
(Job 1:8-9,10-11,12; 2:3-4,5-6)
Note especially Job 1:11 ; Job 2:5 and the end of Job 2:3
Satan said to God,
"11 But now stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face.’"
"3c "And he still maintains his integrity, though you (Satan) incited me (God) against him to ruin him without any reason.’"
"5 But now stretch out your hand (God's hand) and strike his flesh and bones, and he will surely curse you (God) to your face.’"

In all three references; God is credited with Job's persecution
because as Sovereign Judge, God has decreed His permission for Satan to proceed to test Job.
God has "stretched out His own hand", in giving Satan permission.
Yet, Job 1:12 and Job 2:6 make crystal clear, that Satan is the one who actually caused Job's trials.

Certainly, if God can give Satan permission to cause pain, grief and trouble to the righteous and faultless man, Job (Job 1:8);
He can also, in His justice, permit Satan to destroy a thoroughly wicked city, and be credited with that decision.
I'll make the point here, that God could have used Satan to rain fire from heaven on Sodom and Gomorrah. At Job 1:12,16 we see that Satanic power, demonstrated.

Please continue...

Jeremiah 13:13 reads;
13 "then tell them, “This is what the Lord says: *I* am going to fill with drunkenness all who live in this land, including the kings who sit on David’s throne, the priests, the prophets and all those living in Jerusalem."

If you compare Isa.28:7 and Micah 2:11, you will see that the drunkenness being spoken of, is the believing and teaching of lies and deceptions, false visions and unjust decisions. 

Can you see from Jer.13:13 above, that God took credit for filling the kings, priests, and prophets, with a spirit of drunkenness, so that they lead the people according to false teaching and injustice (Job 12:25)?

Is the "God of Truth" who cannot lie (John 3:33; Titus 1:2; Heb.6:18), really the source of this deception, false teaching, and injustice that the wicked leaders are practicing and promulgating? (1John 1:5-6)
How are we to understand 2Thess. 2:11,
which seems to contradict those other scriptures which assert that God is incapable of lying?
It reads;
"For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie".

All of our confusion is cleared away, when we see the simple truth of HOW the God of Truth,
"sends" out a spirit of drunkenness, deception, lies, false visions, false prophecy, and unjust decisions being rendered by the leaders of His people.

Observe, as the Great Judge, is in the process of sending out that deception that He takes credit for...
We have an insider's view, of how the drunkenness of believing and teaching falsehood (Matt.15:14), actually happens...
We have 2 Bible accounts of that court scene...

1Kings 22: "21 Then a spirit came forward, stood before the LORD, and said, ‘I will entice him.’ 
‘By what means?’ asked the LORD. 22 And he replied, ‘*I* will go out and be a lying spirit in the mouths of all his prophets.’ 
‘You will surely entice him and prevail,’ said the LORD. ‘Go and do it.’ 
23 So you see, **the LORD has put a lying spirit in the mouths of all these prophets of yours, and the LORD has pronounced disaster against you.”

  ----- So, "the Lord has pronounced disaster against you".....
 By the word of the Sovereign Judge, destruction decreed.
God has given His permission to the lying spirit, to deceive the leaders.

Clearly, a "lying spirit" came forward in God's court, ready to be used by God, to discipline His people with the consequence that was due for God's people's unfaithfulness toward God. 
It is the "lying spirit" that is actually putting lies into the mouth of the prophets of God's people. 
Yet who gets the credit for deciding this? 
**"The Lord".
2Chron. 18:20,21,22 is another account of this.
We also get a behind-the-scene look at this happening again, at Rev.16:13-14...<< if you'd like to see that.

According to Jesus, the "lying spirit", is Satan (John 8:44).
Satan is also the "king of the abyss" who is called the Destroyer (Rev.9:11 NIV  ).
Isaiah 33:1  tells us clearly, what the future is for the Destroyer.

Now, we can get really specific. We can go to an account that names, "the Destroying Angel".
         ("Angel" means "messenger", and this is the 'messenger of destruction' often referred to in scripture) (1Cor. 10:6-7,8-9;  1Cor. 10:10 NIV  )

Remember when "God struck the firstborn of Egypt"?
Exodus 12 reads;
"12 ‘On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn of both people and animals, and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am the Lord. 13 The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt."
God is taking credit for striking/destroying the firstborn of both people and animal. Verse 12 says that God is "bringing judgment" on the gods of Egypt. Again, as Supreme Judge, God is rendering a decision/passing judgment, to punish the wicked.

But is it God Himself who is doing the destroying/striking?
We find the answer, at verse 22-23 of the same chapter...
Ex.12:22-23 ...
"22 Take a bunch of hyssop, dip it into the blood in the basin and put some of the blood on the top and on both sides of the door-frame. None of you shall go out of the door of your house until morning. 23 When the Lord goes through the land to strike down the Egyptians, he will see the blood on the top and sides of the door-frame and will pass over that doorway, and He will not permit the Destroyer to enter your houses and strike you down".

Below the surface, we see the Truth.
Verse 23 shows us HOW "The Lord...strikes down the Egyptians" (Ex.12:23)
It also shows us HOW, God does the striking of the wicked, and guards the obedient of Israel (Ex.12:23).
How does the blood on the doorpost, protect God's people?
When God sees it; "He (God) will not permit the Destroyer to enter your house" (Ex.12:23).
*** Heb.11:28 ***
(see Strong's definition of "Destroyer", as a venomous serpent: LINK )(Rev.12:9)

Is the Destruction ("Abaddon") of Sodom and Gomorrah, any different from the destruction of Egypt?
It is clear from all these examples, that the Bible is teaching us, who does the destroying,
of both the wicked, and even the refining persecution of the righteous (Luke 22:31).
As 1Cor. 5:5 reads;
"5 hand this man over *to Satan* for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord."

If you are willing to simply learn about the realm of spiritual darkness and death (abyss/Hades), over which the Destroyer, is king (Rev.9:11);
I'm sure you will see with clarity, who the Destroyer, is... and that it is not the God of Love, Light, and Life (1John 4:8; Matt.5:44,45;  2Pet. 1:4; Ps.36:9)
.... nor His son, Jesus Christ.
Jesus is the image of God (Col.1:15). 
He said;
"10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." (John 10:10)

What is the expressed will of our Father in heaven?
"9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering toward us, not willing that any should be destroyed, but that all should come to repentance." (2Pet. 3:9)

"11 Say to them, “As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Why will you die, people of Israel?” (Eze.33:11)

"15 See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction....17 But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient (Num.32:15), and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, 18 I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed....19 This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live" (Deut.30)

--Who becomes lord and father over those who turn to, serve, and worship, false gods? Only then, does God state that such wayward children will be abandoned by Him, and destroyed (1Chron. 28:9).

It is God's expressed will, that none should come under the power and authority of the Devil, and as a consequence, reap destruction from the Devil (Gal.6:8;  1Cor. 5:5).
Of them, 2Pet. 2:12 reads;
"12 But these people blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like unreasoning animals, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like animals they too will perish."

Who is it that catches, ensnares, and destroys those who blaspheme?
2Tim. 2:25-26 ...
"25 Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, 26 and that they will come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will."

1Tim. 3:7 "He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap."

--- Trapping and destroying the unwary, is not of God.
(Ps.141:9; 140:5; 38:12; 31:4; Jer.5:26; 9:8;  1Pet. 5:8;  2Cor. 2:11)
Those who are caught and destroyed (2Pet. 2:12), are done so, by the Devil.

At Deut.30:15 we read that God provides our free will, with a choice between life or destruction.
Jesus spoke of that fork in the road, at Matt.7:13-14...
"13 ‘Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.'"

Walking the road that leads to destruction, is one of spiritual darkness... 
a mind blinded and led by, the Devil (Eph.4:18; 2:2; Col.1:21;  2Cor. 4:4). 
Destruction befalls those who are under the influence of Satan... not under the influence of God!
The way/road to life (Matt.7:14) IS the way of God, through Christ (John 14:6; 8:12) whose will it is that none be destroyed (2Pet. 3:9; John 10:10).

Those two paths and those who walk on each of them, are as children... each group as in service to and under the influence of, their own mother. 
These mothers are symbolic of covenants... 
one mother of life and freedom from sin,
one mother of death, enslaved to sin.
The children of each, are on the path of their own mother, leading to either light and life,
 or spiritual blindness and death.
(Rom.8:2; Gal.4:26,24; John 8:34)(Isa.28:15; Rev.17:5) Rom.6:16

Isa.54:16 reads God as saying;
"‘See, it is I who created the blacksmith
    who fans the coals into flame
    and who forges a weapon fit for its work.
And it is I who have created the Destroyer to wreak havoc."

Once again, the Great Judge decided to allow Satan to live, even after Satan caused the fall of creation into sin and death (Rom.6:23;  1John 3:8).
At Isa.54:16 above, God reveals why this is so.
God uses the Destroyer of life as a weaponto bring havok on God's enemies.
Through their practices; Sodom and Gomorrah were enemies of God.
Yet as Isa.33:1 showed us; when Satan is done with his purpose of destroying, 
the Destroyer, will be destroyed. 
Psalm 104:29 explains. 

God is not obligated to continue to bestow His life-sustaining spirit (ruach/breath), upon the wicked, after their purpose in His will, is fulfilled (Ex.9:16).

Here is a link that examines the Abyss/Hades, over which the Destroyer is king ( Rev.9:11 NIV ).
Understanding the nature of that realm, will help you to discern who is king over it.

Lastly, I will say that the projection of "Jehovah" as a god of destruction and ruin, is actually correct.
The name "Jehovah", does mean destruction, mischief, and ruin. "Jehovah", is not YHVH's name.
These posts may interest you:
What then, about the teaching of Armageddon, and that false teaching which asserts that God is going to destroy everyone? A faith based on scripture will also help to console us in that regard...

God's Word? God's Gender?

Message I received:
I sincerely hope you show enough humility to realize that what you have been teaching are lies from the god you worship, YHVH who is Satan himself disguised as the true God of the universe. The true God is actually a feminine God.
Please show humility and discard all of your writings because even though you have left the organization, you are still teaching lies that brings honor and glory to Satan himself, who is the god responsible for the Hebrew scriptures."

My Reply:
Please show me specifically, which of my writings I should discard, and why.
I always insert the scriptures from which my writings are sourced. When you select what I should erase, please provide how you interpret the cited scriptures... to show me how I have misunderstood them.

Since you seem to be saying that my use of the Hebrew scriptures, and my references to God's words within them (which you say are actually Satan's words and teaching), is what disqualifies my posts as truthful; I offer you what Jesus had to say about the Hebrew scriptures...

Matt.5: "17 ‘Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven."

Jesus said; John17: "17 'Sanctify them by means of the Truth. Your Word, is Truth".

2Pet.1 reads; "19 We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. 20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. 21 For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit."

2Tim.3: "16 All Scripture is inspired of God and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."
--- The scriptures being referred to (above) by the Jews of the first century, were the Hebrew scriptures.
Paul is claiming that they were, inspired by God.

Since all the scriptures I gave you above (and the words of Jesus) are from God... I choose to keep in mind what we are told at Romans ch.3  
"4 Let God be true, and every human being a liar. 21 But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testified. 31 Do we, then, nullify the law by this faith? Not at all! Rather, we uphold the law."

So I choose to listen to God, over listening to someone who "sets aside" the Hebrew scriptures, and is therefore, debased by Christ (Matt.5:19).

Teaching that the Hebrew prophets and scriptures, ARE NOT spoken from God by Holy Spirit 
(as 2Pet.1:21 tells us they are),
is sinning the unforgivable sin... the sin against holy spirit....
because you are saying that the spirit that inspired the Hebrew scriptures, is of the devil.
Or are you also saying that the apostle Peter, Paul, and Jesus himself, were lying in the verses quoted above?
(Matt.5:17-19; 2Pet.1:19-21; 2Tim.3:16-17)

As far as God being a female spirit...
Who would best know the nature of God?
Luke 10: "22 ‘All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.’"

I am going to trust, that Jesus Christ, knows the "FATHER".
If you go to the original Greek of Luke10:22 quoted above, it reads;
2   3956 [e]
22   Panta
22   Πάντα
22   All things
22   Adj-NNP
1473 [e]
to Me
3860 [e]
have been delivered
5259 [e]
3588 [e]
3962 [e]

You will see there, that the original word for "father", is "Patros".

That corresponds to Strong's dictionary, (patros patros G3962 n_ Gen Sg m FATHER)
Here is a link to that definition G3962: (

Another example of Jesus (who "knows the father"), is his words in Matthew, chapter 6...
"9 ‘This, then, is how you should pray:
‘“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name".

Again, the original word used, is pater
n_ Voc Sg m

For more information about God's gender: 
Again, if I am faced with choosing between the wisdom of a human, or of Jesus Christ,
I will go with Jesus Christ's knowledge of the Father.
I can only hope that others do likewise.
You do not offer any scriptures that define Almighty God as feminine.

Basis for Judgment

How does God decide who is saved?

God's word gives us a direct answer to this question...

Rev.20:12 "And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the bookS."

That verse makes clear, that we are judged according to how our works, compare to the contents that are contained in the books.
What books are these?
We have proof, that one of those books, contains all the teachings of Jesus...
John 12:48 "He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him—the words that I have spoken will judge him on the last day."

The second book that reveals how one's works are judged, is the BOOK of Revelation...
Rev.1:3 "Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy of this book, and obey those things which are written in it; for the time is near."
Rev.22:7 "Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book. 12 And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." 
----(Judgment based on comparison between one's works, and the books)

The third book, is one being compiled by Jesus, since the founding of the world (Rev.13:8 NET ; John 1:2)
(Rom.1:20; Eph.1:4). 
Contained within that book, are the names of those who fear, serve, and concern themselves with God....

Mal.3:16 "Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another,  And the Lord listened and heard them;
So a book of remembrance was written before Him
For those who fear the Lord
And who meditate on His name.
17 “They shall be Mine,” says the Lord of hosts,
“On the day that I make them My jewels.
And I will spare them
As a man spares his own son who serves him.”
18 Then you shall again discern
Between the righteous and the wicked,
Between one who serves God
And one who does not serve Him."
----(A Judgment, based upon deeds)
That book of remembrance is the same one, as the Lamb's book of life. That book contains the names of those who through integrity and courage, have earned God's favor and spiritual protection (Rev.3:5; Phil.4:3; Isa.4:3; Rev.20:12).
That book belongs to the Lamb (Rev.13:8 NET ; Rev.21:27), because these are those to whom his blood will apply...
(John 1:29;  1Pet. 1:19; Rev.12:11; 7:14;  1Cor. 5:7)

Also included in that scroll, are those permitted to "enter" that spiritual City, New Jerusalem. This can be compared into entering into a covenant or contract. "Entering" represents a harmony and unity, such as when Jesus is the vine, the faithful elect are the branches, and those feeding from those branches, as being the resulting harvest of fruit (John 15:5; 13:20; Mark 12:2)
To enter, means to unite with. Through that unity; symbolic living water and healing leaves and fruit, will be accessible (Rev.21:24,27; 22:1-2,17; Prov.6:20; Gal.4:26; Rev.21:2; Isa.66:10-12; 60:1-2,4-5,11,14,19; Rev.22:5). Only those blessed by holy spirit to have spiritual eyes and ears (Matt.13:9-11,16), will be granted access to perceive and hear, what is offered by those heavenly ambassadors (2Cor. 5:20; Rev.3:12; 22:17).

In summary, we've learned that our standing with God, 
rests upon how our values, choices, and actions,
compare to a depository of divine standards. 
Those standards were revealed to and recorded for us, in the storehouse of the teachings of Jesus Christ.

The prophetic book of Revelation also will unveil to us, those figures in the time of the End who have served God, and those who have not (Mal.3:18). 
Our Lord Jesus who can read hearts (John 2:24-25; 16:30; Matt.9:4), has recorded the righteous, in his memory. The day approaches when they will be rewarded for the love and mercy that they have shown 
(Rev.22:12; John 15:12; 13:35; Matt.5:7; 25:31-33,34-36,40,41-43,44-46; 10:41-42,32; Rev.3:5).

Horses and their Riders

"What is the meaning of horses and riders in the Bible?"

We know that the harlot rides the beast, right? 
We know that her riding it, means that she uses it and controls it to her advantage, as other uses of this symbol, indicate.
Deut.33:26; <Jude 1:14 Psalm 68:4; Heb.12:1
Jer.6:23; Zech.12:4; Rev.17:7
Jesus chose good symbols for his parables, so it helps if we think about the relationship between a real horse and the one who rides it.... especially if we are going into battle.

If we go into battle on foot, we must contend with the enemy by hand-to-hand combat, one foe at a time. It is a grueling struggle, and the most we can hope for in battle without a horse, is a small and personal, almost insignificant victory as regards the overall war.

Horses become an extension of their rider. Horses afford their rider an advantage that facilitates their speed, power, and movement. 

Speed, power, and strategic maneuvering, all exist in spiritual warfare (2Cor.10:3; 6:7; 2Tim.2:3). 
But to understand such a spiritual symbol, we need to think spiritually (1Cor.2:13-14; Rom.8:5). 

For example, consider a doctrine that promotes a religious organization as being directed by the spirit of God. 
That teaching, (like a horse), carries those who are representatives of that organization (which bear the image of divine authority and power) forward, so that they can conquer and gain control over, those whose minds are overcome, by use of that doctrine (horse). 
Another example would be the assertion that the leaders of a religious organization, are genuine saints. Scriptures such as those to follow, could be exploited and twisted to their own advantage: 
Luke 12:42; Heb.13:17; John13:20; Jer.26:5; Acts 3:23. 
By means of such a teaching, such leaders are enabled to gain access into the mind of their followers, and win over their faith and subjection. They 'ride' and steer their teachings, to advance and forward their own position and dominion, over us. 
A horse represents a power greater then our individual self if battling alone... which affords us an advantage during spiritual battle.

Jesus rides a WHITE horse. White, stands for righteousness and JUSTICE (Rev.19:11; Matt.12:20). 
That is the basis for Christ's advantage over evil, and his ability to successfully battle with evil... like a literal horse would give us an advantage 
(Heb.10:12; Matt.28:18; Rev.5:12,9; John1:9,5; 16:33; 1John5:4-5; Rev.17:14; 19:14,8).

An example the Bible gives of horses and riders, is at Rev.6:2-8. There we see 4 different horses and riders, but also, we are given characteristics about both, which helps us.
The horses are white, black, red, and pale green.
If white stands for justice, righteousness, and goodness... BLACK would be sin, injustice, and evil
Dark and light, are opposites 
(Gen.1:4; Ps.18:28; Ecc.2:13; Isa.5:20; Lam.3:2; Luke 11:34,36; John3:19; 8:12)
(Rom.13:12; 1Thess.5:5)
RED is the color of sin and murderous rage (Isa.1:18; Rev.17:3-4,6; 18:24). 

PALE GREEN is in my mind, blind, spiritual ignorance
I'll explain. 
Green grass is one of the symbols for the healthy spiritual food coming from God 
(Gen.1:30; Ps.100:3; 95:7; 23:1-2; Mark 6:39; Rev.9:4; 8:7)
(Rev.22:16; 2Pet.1:19; 2Sam.23:4; Deut.32:2; 11:15; Mal.4:2).
  When grass has lost the light of the sun, it loses its vitality, and turns pale green.
Sunlight, is a symbol for truth coming through Jesus Christ (John1:4; Matt.17:2; 2Pet.1:19; Mal.4:2; Rev.22:16; Isa.60:1-2).
Bible prophecy describes a time when sunlight is lost... 
(Joel 2:1-2; Matt.24:29; Rev.9:2-3; Isa.5:30; Amos 5:18) 

A pale green horse, is a power of ignorance/lies/confusion, resulting from a loss of light from Christ. 
Eph.5:23; Col.2:19; 1Tim.4:1; Luke 11:35; 2Cor.13:5. 
That falsehood rides forth... which means it is successfully misleading people, by means of doctrine that aids the 'rider', to conquer those who previously had faith in, and love for, Truth, but lose it (1Tim.4:1; Rev.13:7; 2Cor.11:3-4,12-13,14-15) (2Tim.3:14; Rev.2:25,4)
(2Thess.2:9-10; Rev.13:7,10; Col.2:8; Dan.8:12; Matt.24:4-5,24-25; Rev.13:11,8).

Rev.6:2-8 also adds the riders of each of those horses. The riders help us to understand those who are getting an advantage, by using their 'horses' in spiritual battle.
Jesus battles with the power of 'WHITE'... his righteous justice.
Those who hate Christ's brothers, declare spiritual warfare and seek to kill the faithful (RED
(John13:34; 1John3:12; Rev.12:17; 20:7-9; Luke 21:20,24; Rev.13:10; 16:13-16; 13:11,15; 11:3,7; John16:2; Mark 8:35; Rom.6:5).
The BLACK horse of sin/evil, enslaves people, by being peddlers of what appears to be the truth... salesmen of a counterfeit gospel... wanting money and souls in exchange for offering an illusion of salvation (2Cor.11:4,13-15; 2Thess.2:1-3; Rev.13:11). Such teachers exchange darkness for light (Luke 11:34-35; Eph.4:18; 2Thess.2:9-10). That religious system/world, disobeys Jesus and God, who offer a reliable hope of eternal life, for free 
(Isa.55:1-2; Matt.10:8; 2Cor.2:17; 11:7; Rev.22:17) (John2:16; Rev.6:6; 13:17).

The last PALE green horse has a rider named Death, ...and Hades is following close behind (Rev.6:8).
Death is the last enemy of Jesus Christ (1Cor.15:26). 
The power of Death upon which power, Death rides (powerful spiritual horse), 
is spiritual ignorance... teachings that mislead people away from the light of life (John1:4) (Eph.4:18; Matt.13:15,13; 2Thess.2:10; 2Tim.4:3) 
and enslave them under the power of the dark abyss/Hades (Isa.28:15) (Greek,"Hades"="Sheol" in Hebrew). 
Hades is following that rider Death (Rev.6:8), in order to collect, gather up and harvest, all those being spiritually slain, by Death. 
Hades is the realm of those in darkness. That is where those who are losing the Light of Life, are being incarcerated.
