"Conquering and to conquer", Rev 6.1

What is the best explanation of the construction of the final clause of
Rev 6.2? Is it a hebraism modelled on the accusative absolute (so
Massyngberde Ford). Is it pretty straight Greek, where hina plus aorist
subjunctive emphasizes the rider's stubborn purporse of a final victory?
Why aor subj here but future indic with sphazo in 6.4? How did the kai
get in before the hina? Does anything in the Greek of 6.2d help clarify
the meaning of the first rider (white horse)?
