The Second Seal

When he broke open the second seal, I heard the second living creature cry out, “Come forward.” Another horse came out, a red one. Its rider was given power to take peace away from the earth, so that people would slaughter one another. And he was given a huge sword. (Rev 6:3-4)

The Second Seal is an event or series of events that, according to St. John, “take peace away from the earth, so that people would slaughter one another.” Consider the events of 911 and what followed. Pope John Paul II strongly warned that America should not resort to war, as did the U.S. Bishop's Conference:

With the Holy See and bishops from the Middle East and around the world, we fear that resort to war, under present circumstances and in light of current public information, would not meet the strict conditions in Catholic teaching for overriding the strong presumption against the use of military force. —Statement on Iraq, November 13th, 2002, USCCB

That war is estimated to have killed over a million people.[1]per the 2007 Opinion Research Business (ORB) survey In the vacuum of the aftermath, the terrorist groups al Qaeda and eventually ISIS rose to power producing an endless "war on terrorism." This has likewise generated countless deaths worldwide as various countries, especially in the Middle East, have been plunged into war, terrorist cells and attacks have multiplied, Christians have been driven out of their homes and lands and their churches burned, millions of refugees have flooded and destabilized Western nations, while basic freedoms are increasingly being infringed upon in the name of "security." In other words, it plunged the entire world into war:

What has struck me recently—and I think a lot about it—is that up until now, in schools we are taught about the two world wars. But the one that has just now broken out, I believe, should also be described as a ‘world war,’ because its impact really touches the whole world. —Cardinal Roger Etchegaray, POPE JOHN PAUL II’s envoy to Iraq; Catholic News, March 24rd, 2003

War is madness… even today, after the second failure of another world war, perhaps one can speak of a Third War, one fought piecemeal, with crimes, massacres, destruction… Humanity needs to weep, and this is the time to weep. —POPE FRANCIS, September 13th, 2015;

[Footnote: If the Second Seal is a sword to take peace from the earth, one cannot help but reflect on the origins of Covid-19, the "coronavirus." While some scientists in the UK assert that Covid-19 came from natural origins,[2] a new paper from South China’s University of Technology claims ‘the killer coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory in Wuhan.'[3]Feb. 16th, 2020; In early February 2020, Dr. Francis Boyle, who drafted the U.S. “Biological Weapons Act”, gave a detailed statement admitting that the 2019 Wuhan Coronavirus is an offensive Biological Warfare Weapon and that the World Health Organization (WHO) already knows about it.[4] An Israeli biological warfare analyst said much the same.[5]Jan. 26th, 2020; Professor Luc Montagnier, 2008 Nobel Prize winner for Medicine and the man who discovered the HIV virus in 1983, claims that SARS-CoV-2 is a manipulated virus that was accidentally released from a laboratory in Wuhan, China.[6] Whether Covid-19 is a bio-weapon or natural in origin, a valid question arises: was this virus released from a laboratory as a planned event to bring down the world economy? And why does the Denver, Colorado airport, of all places (known for its apocalyptic art), feature a soldier with a sword killing the "peace dove" while the dead lay around him—and he is in a respirator mask?]

That said, according to several seers, there is yet a large-scale war to come. These preceding events, though they have “unsheathed” the sword, may only be precursors to an all out Third World War.
