Need Help-Connecting In-Ceiling speakers to Receiver

I am new to audio equipment and am looking for some help.

Just moved into a new home with ceiling speakers in three rooms. Total of 7 speakers inside and two outside. I bought a receiver and want to drive these speakers but there are four speaker cables coming out of the wall and each cable has four colored wires(red, black, white, green). There are volume controls on the walls of the three rooms. How do I connnect to my receiver? Which colored wires do I connect to the receiver?

Thank you.

You will need to pop one of the speakers out and take a look at the wire connections. While you are at it, take notice of any specifications listed on the speaker such as 8 ohm or 4 ohm and that sort of thing.

There really isn't any way to determine what you are dealing with without looking at the speakers.
