Read the Interpretation

Revelation 6: 7, 8 When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth. NKJ
Jeremiah 1: 11, 12 Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Jeremiah, what do you see?”
And I said, “I see a branch of an almond tree.”
Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am ready to perform My word.”

“New Life” interpretation & painting by Leslie Young Marks
The Church is embarking on a new order in its history. The apostles are being set in place, and the government that has been ordained by God from the beginning, is in position for the first time since the early Church. God can now release his power, because the father’s heart is restored to His body. We are no longer fragmented and anemic, but postured for the whole body of Christ to function as we were created to do in the power, authority, and anointing of the resurrected Christ. We now have a mandate to legislate from our position in Christ, seated with Him in Heavenly places. “Ephesians 2:6” we are God’s voice of authority on earth. At Holy Spirit’s direction we decree the judgment of God on his enemies.
As the Lamb opened the forth seal, the pale horse whose rider’s name was death, was released. Hell and the grave followed him. God is meting out justice to those who have purposed to bring death and destruction to Israel and the Church of Jesus Christ. The spirit of Babylon is being judged, and death is the sentence.
The number four symbolizes earth, it’s four corners, (north, south, east, and west) the four winds, the four cycles of nature, and the dealings of God. One fourth of earth was under judgment, death by sword, famine, pestilence, and wild beast.
The word “pale,” in the Greek means pale green, the negative type meaning sickly or corpselike. While the negative aspects of this seal being broken and the pale horse riding are directed toward antichrist system, the Lord rules in favor of the saints! Green also symbolizes new life, healing, prosperity, and growth; a complete contradiction of our enemy’s lot. The almond branch represents fruitfulness, hastening, and awakening. The almond tree is the first to bloom in Israel. It is a first fruit. When Jeremiah saw the almond branch in Jeremiah 1: 11, 12, the Lord told him that He was watching and hastening to see His word fulfilled. It also symbolizes the resurrection of Christ. 1Corinthins 15: 20-22
But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man.
For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.
But each in his own turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him.
Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power.
For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet.
The last enemy to be destroyed is death.
We see this painting and its symbolism come alive in this scripture passage. Not only has Jesus destroyed death, but Revelation 1:18 says, that He possesses the keys to hell and the grave.
The shadow of the cross in the painting represents a crossroad. The Lord sets before us life and death, blessing and cursing, and he urges us to choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19) Deny Christ and suffer judgment, or choose new life through Him.
This painting portrays the season that we are presently in, one of transition. In a transition there has to be death to the old order, and a birthing into the new. Just as the almond tree symbolizes the beginning of a new season and a promise of fruit, this season holds the same promise for the people of God.
I finished “New Life” Wednesday, June 20, 2007. The next day we received an article from the Elijah List, written by Bob Jones, and Paul Keith Davis, entitled “The Season of the Basilisk.” They state that from July 3rd to July 24th Israel, our nation and the American Church need extraordinary prayer covering. In this particular time frame the warfare is amplified and this spirit intensifies in its attack on Israel, and the people of God. Many catastrophic events in Jewish history have occurred in this season. This article also states that Basilisk is the exemplification of the Devil himself who’s primary purpose is death and destruction. The natural physical death resulting from this spirit is derived from plagues, sickness and disease, natural disasters, and even terrorism. It is critical that the Church “be not ignorant of his devices…….”
I know now why God instructed me to make this apostolic decree through the painting “New Life.” Note the similarities in their methods of destruction. The final word though, rest in Almighty God and His justice. Jesus destroyed death and holds the keys to hell and the grave - AMEN.
