The name of the rider on this green and white spotted horse is Death, and Sh’ol (the place of the dead) follows him. According to the prophet Isaiah, there will be nations who mock the people of Jerusalem and the Jewish people. They make a “covenant with Death and a contract with Sh’ol” believing their agreements will protect them from the judgment to coming against Isra’el. They embrace lies and create falsehoods about the end times, the Jewish people, and the holy city, but they will be utterly destroyed by their own deception and live in sheer terror (Isaiah 28:14-19).
Pesach is to be celebrated throughout all the generations of the people of Israel wherever they lived. In Joshua chapter 5, the Israelites celebrate Pesach in Gilgal after taking flint knives and circumcising all the men who had come out of the wilderness. In 2 Kings chapter 23, King Josiah destroys all the high places and idols in Israel, and the nation celebrates Pesach in Jerusalem for the first time since the days of the Judges. In Ezra chapter 6, when the Israelites return from captivity in Babylon, everyone who renounced the pagan practices of the nations celebrated the Pesach.
