The Four Horsemen: Revelations for Today
As we examine the heart of the Holy Scriptures, we arrive at the apocalyptic Book of Revelations and its enigmatic depiction of the Four Horsemen. Let us not shy away from these mystifying passages but instead find in them the wisdom for our contemporary world.
In the Book of Revelations, Apostle John had a vision - the vision of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Four riders, each atop a horse of a different color - white, red, black, and pale. These figures are often interpreted as symbolic representations of Conquest, War, Famine, and Death, respectively.
The first horseman, upon the white horse, is typically seen as a figure of Conquest. Some understand him as Christ Himself, embodying victory and the advancement of the Gospel. In our own lives, the white horse urges us towards victory, not over our fellow human beings, but over our baser selves, our prejudices, and our doubts.
The second horseman, astride the fiery red horse, is the embodiment of War. As we navigate through our daily lives in this turbulent world, it is incumbent upon us to resist the lures of conflict and to foster peace. The red horseman reminds us of the perils of hostility, and the need to instead cultivate love, understanding, and reconciliation.
Next, we encounter the rider of the black horse, the symbol of Famine. Today, we face not only physical famine, but also a famine of the spirit, marked by a dearth of compassion, empathy, and kindness. The black horseman implores us to share generously, not only in material terms but also in love, forgiveness, and understanding.
Lastly, the pale horse carries Death. This final rider is a potent reminder of the temporality of our earthly existence, urging us to make every moment count. He invites us to live fully, to serve sincerely, and to love deeply, aware that each breath is a gift.
However, it's crucial to note that these Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are not prophesy of unavoidable doom, but a wake-up call, a call to consciousness. They are a warning of what could transpire if we do not embrace the Gospel's core values of love, compassion, and peace.
To truly learn from the Four Horsemen, we must shift our focus from fear to understanding, from avoidance to engagement. These symbolic figures can be used to examine our lives, our relationships, and our world, prompting us to strive for better.
The white horseman calls us to conquer our personal shortcomings, the red horseman warns us of the destructive nature of conflict, the black horseman cautions us against selfishness and encourages generosity, and the pale horseman reminds us of the brevity and sacredness of life.
In conclusion, the message of the Four Horsemen is not one of despair, but a call to action. It urges us to embrace the core Christian values of love, forgiveness, and service. Let us strive to heed this call and thus transform our lives, our communities, and indeed our world.
Prayer: Gracious and Merciful Father, we thank you for your guiding hand during our service today. We thank you for the enlightenment and insight we have gleaned from your Holy Word, and for the fellowship we share as believers united under your Divine Love. As we part ways and head into the world, we ask that you continue to illuminate our paths. Help us to embody the wisdom of the Four Horsemen, teaching us to conquer personal weaknesses, promoting peace, encouraging generosity, and remembering the sacredness and brevity of life. May we carry these lessons in our hearts, reflecting your love and compassion in our interactions with others. Guide us as we strive to translate these profound messages into tangible actions, fostering change within ourselves, our communities, and the world. We ask that your grace follow us, that your love surrounds us, and that your peace resides within us, now and forever. May we always remember that in every ending is a promise of a new beginning under your divine Providence.
In the comforting and victorious name of Yeshua the Saviour, the Christ, we pray.

Seminary Courses Available
Spiritual Healing: Learn about spiritual healing methods like Quantum Touch and Reiki. Energy can be used to heal, and understanding this can be a step on the path to spiritual development………
Energy Work: Rev Cottrell's teachings likely include methods of energy healing, which involve manipulating the body's energy fields to promote healing. Techniques might include hands-on healing, distant healing, or use of intention.
Virtue Healing: Although Rev Cottrell has not specifically used the term "virtue healing" in available sources, the concept likely involves harnessing the power of virtues such as love, kindness, compassion, and forgiveness in the healing process. This could involve cultivating these virtues within oneself, or using intention to send this virtuous energy to others for their healing.
Prayer: Prayer is an important part of Rev Cottrell's spiritual approach. He sees prayer not only as a way to ask for divine assistance, but also as a means to focus intention and connect with the divine source. Prayer can be used for self-healing or to request healing for others.
Self-Healing: Rev Cottrell teaches that individuals have the ability to heal themselves. This might involve practices like self-meditation, positive visualization, affirmation, or other methods to promote physical and spiritual healing.
These points provide a general understanding of spiritual healing and prayer as they might be understood in Cottrell's teachings. For the most accurate and detailed understanding, it's best to refer directly to his original works or teachings.

Rev. Dr. Douglas James Cottrell, PhD
Brothers and Sisters in Faith, I'd like to share with you the vision of building an international Christian Interfaith community based on my experiences and teachings, which are deeply rooted in my Christian mystical spiritual gifts, and as a Christian I believe Jesus the Christ is my mentor a great light and Divine.
My spiritual gifts have been the guiding force in my life when I was called at the age of 24.These abilities have allowed me to receive divine guidance and have increased the spiritual gifts of Dreams, Visions, Meditations Prophesy, Virtue Spiritual Healing, and other heightened spiritual gifts as recounted in 1st Corinthians Ch 12-14 KJV.
I prayed for spiritual understandings. My mentors and teachers over the years helped me to greater understandings beyond my expectations. Spiritual gifts are to be shared with seekers just like you, and by the grace of God your development will be for the good of all. To illuminate the Christ consciousness is to develop spiritual gifts of prophesy and spiritual virtue healing and dream interpretation. Teaching and demonstrating spiritual gifts are the sign of a prophet. Teaching the spiritual gifts can help us build bridges between different faiths. We are all one. Souls on a path to be all inclusive, to bring people closer in understanding the divine within and above.
The mission of creating a Christian Interfaith community world wide based on members of this community developing spiritual gifts, we must follow these guidelines:
By following these guidelines, we can create a Christian Interfaith community that is both grounded in my teachings and open to the rich spiritual traditions of the world. In this way, we can unite people of different faiths, fostering understanding, love, and cooperation as we walk together on the path towards spiritual enlightenment. God bless you all.
