Revelation 6:3–4 (ESV)
The Seven Seals (Part 2)
3When he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another,
and he was given a great sword.
Again, the second seal brings about another horse… bright red. Jesus is called the Prince of Peace, but the rider
of the red horse takes peace away. The color red may reflect bloodshed. It reminds me of Matthew 24:6 (ESV) “6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take
place, but the end is not yet.”
I pray, O Lord, help me to trust in you unto the end. Amen.
