Second Seal: Conflict on Earth
Revelation 6:3-4 When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come and see.”Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.
What are we seeing in the world today, in Syria, Iraq, and elsewhere around the world, we are seeing people killing one another and peace seems nearly nonexistent. Are we not seeing some of the prophetic events foretold in the book of Revelation? And I ask who the man who welds a sword is? Is this not the sword of Islam that is seen throughout the world? And, the sword of Islam says, submit or die, this is not a religion of peace and love, it is a religion of war and cruelty in the name of allah, who steals, kills and destroys. One needs to be very aware of who one is serving in these end days. I for one serve the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who is the true God of love and peace.
