March 15, 2020 Lent 3: Psalm 46

You have probably heard of the Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse. It is a graphic way to describe the Signs of the End of the world. We heard about the Four Horsemen today in the reading from the book of Revelation. The Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse is pale in color; the text actually says it’s greenish in color – like when we say someone who is sick looks “green around the gills.”

This Fourth Horseman, which is pale and green in color, brings all kinds of destruction on the earth, including pestilence. This pestilence includes all kinds of sickness and disease, including epidemics and pandemics. We are currently getting a front row look at this green horse.
