“This was the dream; now we will tell the king its interpretation.  You, O king, the king of kings, to whom the God of heaven has given the kingdom, the power, and the might, and the glory,  and into whose hand he has given, wherever they dwell, the sons of men, the beasts of the field, and the birds of the air, making you rule over them all — you are the head of gold.  After you shall arise another kingdom inferior to you, and yet a third kingdom of bronze, which shall rule over all the earth.  And there shall be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron, because iron breaks to pieces and shatters all things; and like iron which crushes, it shall break and crush all these.

Rev 6 The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse

Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures say, as with a voice of thunder,  “Come!”  And I saw, and behold, a white horse, and its rider had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.  When he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say,  “Come!”  And out came another horse, bright red; its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that men should slay one another; and he was given a great sword.  When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say,  “Come!” And I saw, and behold, a black horse, and its rider had a balance in his hand;  and I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying,  “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; but do not harm oil and wine!”  When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say,  “Come!”  And I saw, and behold, a pale horse, and its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed him; and they were given power over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth.   When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the witness they had borne; Rev. 6:1 -9 

The Four Tempest Angels

1   After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth, that no wind might blow on earth or sea or against any tree.  2 Then I saw another angel ascend from the rising of the sun, with the seal of the living God, and he called with a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm earth and sea,  3 saying, “Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God upon their foreheads.” Rev. 7:1-3

 The Four Angels Bound at the River Euphrates

Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar before God,  14 saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.”  15 So the four angels were released, who had been held ready for the hour, the day, the month, and the year, to kill a third of mankind. Rev. 9:13 -15
