May 23: The Rider Who Takes Peace from the Earth

Scripture Reading — Revelation 6:1-17

“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.” (Revelation 6:4)

My child, you are living in that time which John saw coming upon the earth as he looked down upon the earth from heaven’s open door.

The rider on the red horse is riding. His name is “hate,” for everyone who hates his brother is a murderer. (I John 3:15)

There is a terrible spirit of hate let loose upon the earth from the pit of hell and the caves of darkness to try everyone dwelling on this earth, whether Christian, Moslem, Jew, Hindu, Buddhist, or any religion. It is working its hate between those of the same belief, those of the same family, same persuasion. Even the atheists and communists shall hate each other.

It is the first of the terrible judgments when every man’s love for his neighbour, his family, country, and calling will be tested.

With the freeing of this spirit, peace is being taken from the hearts of men, for peace comes through love and where there is no love, there is no peace.

Today people are killing one another savagely in some places, in other circles they are killing one another with the tongue of slander just as cruelly.

Neither will this change, until I take the sword out of a family, a ministry, a nation, or a heart. Only one thing can overcome the rider on the red horse and that is the Spirit of My love!
