Revelation 6:1 - 8
ESV - 1 Now I watched when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures say with a voice like thunder, "Come! 2 And I looked, and behold, a white horse! And its rider had a bow, and a crown was given to him, and he came out conquering, and to conquer.

My wife and I say that the White Horse in Rev, 6 and Rev. 19 is JESUS. We refer you to 'More than Conquerors' by William Hedriksen who quotes at least 7 cross-references in the Bible re Rev. 6 to back-up his views. Lord Bless, Michael and Meriel.
My grandfather and I also say that the White Horse and Its Rider is Jesus, Rev 6:2 and Rev 19:11. The second horse War who takes away peace is the opponent of the First. But I have a New American Standard Bible in which the header of this chapter identify the White Horse as the False Christ, I looked at the New King James and its header say The Conqueror only. My grandfather saw the second beast that will deceive the masses being a religious leader who will possess the spirit of the Antichrist, the False Prophet.
Dear Vanessa, Greetings to you in the Wonderful Name of JESUS the Christ. 'GOD is Love' is a well-known phrase used liberally to describe our GOD, not so. JESUS Loves us and He came to die for us, that if we believe we will be Saved and have everlasting life, not so. But it is written - before the Judgment JESUS will return leading the horses to cut and to devastate and to destroy in a way hard to even imagine, let alone yet portrayed in the movies ! Then the Judgment. Fear of GOD is the beginning of Wisdom and only a fool will deny it. Lord Bless, Michael.
