[THE LION, THE LAMB, AND THE SEVEN SEALS, CONT.]
[the second seal]
John was again told to 'Come and see’, which indicates that he was symbolically carried to another geographical location to see other forces unto judgment set in motion. This time John saw a horse that was red, 'and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given to him a great sword.' (Rev. 6:4). It should not be too hard, my people, for you to discern that there is one force which has been responsible for continually taking peace from the earth ever since it raised its ugly head. The second seal was opened when Red Russia began to foment revolution and division in other countries. This is why the rider of the red horse was given a great sword. The sword is a symbol of division through revolution resulting in much bloodshed, as well as outright attack. Dictator Stalin set the red horse fully in motion and the communist revolution has continued to foment strife, conflict and warfare ever since. Since power was given to the red horse rider to 'take peace from the earth', there shall be no way that the nations can live in peaceful co-existence with communism. It is either stand up and fight or be conquered. As this beast system gains the ascendancy in the earth, and the false prophet re-organizes the United Nations as its front, there will be those peoples and nations who will not wholly submit, and there will be continuous bloodshed throughout its reign of terror. Therefore peace will be no more until the Prince of peace comes, and the red horse rider is no more.
