When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4 Then another horse came out, a fiery red one.Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other. To him was given a large sword. - Revelation 6:3-4
The rider on the fiery red horse brings a hard message. You are showing us that as long as we live this side of heaven, earth will be a violent place. People will be killing other people off and on until the end of time. You want us to know that this place will never be heaven. It will always be a war zone. It makes me long for you and the eternal peace and protection you will give us in heaven. I know you are with us now and protect us with your angels throughout our lives but you also use the chaos here to bring us to glory. I will live a life of honesty and love while staying around murderous people. I will not kid myself that somehow earth will become a place where there are no threats. Stay near me Lord Jesus and help me Lord Jesus and protect me from the dangers that lurk around me.
