Revelation 6:3…And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another 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 unto him a great sword.
The Second Seal which reveals the Red Horse and the great sword symbolizes a bloody war. Horses and horsemen always represent going to battle in the Bible. Each Horse of various color as taught in John’s Revelation showed significant meaning applicable to the Great Tribulation – which is a Jewish Tribulation. The Red Horse – taking peace from the earth is a symbolic picture of war, battle, and devastation upon the Earth. International Revolution takes place. One World Government forms. The rising of the Beast Kingdom (A Gentile aggression against Israel) shows an object within God’s Seals. All pointing to the famous Biblical Battle of Armageddon.
During this Tribulation period of seven years – broken into two… 3 1/2 year time frames, you will notice the Seals, the Trumpets, and the Woes ministered upon the Earth and humanity around the globe, by God Almighty.
- The seals pertain to the Wrath of God placed upon humanity as a result of missing the Rapture of the Church. Mercy and love as we know it in the Church today – is gone.
- The trumpets pertain to the Judgment of God that men face within the economical, the religious, the political, and the military structures that exist upon the Earth.
- The woes are the sufferings within humanity that become so dependent on darkness and the powers of darkness that men became delirious and overtaken by evil.
The Red Horse is one of the four horses mentioned in John’s Revelation: These horses include the Pale Horse, the White Horse, and the Black Horse that all point to God’s Wrath and Judgment upon a godless world after the Rapture of the Church.
Authors end Note: The Red Horse specifically deals with the one World government (The beast) that rules and dictates men around the globe. The Military inertia in the world is controlled by Satan after the Church is raptured. The target is Israel, God’s Elect. The whole World turns against Israel as God continues to gather His chosen from the four corners of the Earth. This Great Jewish Tribulation is a picture of God’s Wrath and Judgment. Tribulation is a Jewish Tribulation for seven years. It is a period of time for Israel’s reckoning according to the Prophets in Old Testament records. The Wrath and Judgment of an angry God takes place during this time. It is a way for God to reach the heart of Israel His chosen. The objective fulfills prophecy while God Almighty sets up His Kingdom prepared from the foundation of the World. During this time God sends “strong delusion” upon humanity due to Israel’s rejection of Christ.
