What was the color of the symbol under the third seal?


"When He had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a
black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand." Verse 5.
NOTE - The "black" horse fitly represents the spiritual darkness that characterized the church
from the time of Constantine till the establishment of papal supremacy in AD. 538. Of the condition of
things in the fourth century, Wharey (page 54) says: "Christianity had now become popular, and a large
proportion, perhaps a large majority, of those who embraced it, only assumed the name, received the rite of
baptism, and conformed to some of the external ceremonies of the church, while at heart and in moral
character they were as much heathen as they were before. Error and corruption now came in upon the
church like a flood."
