I received this last June, In His strength.

The Red Horse:

The red horse of war
Is rearing
Snorting out fire and sparks
The one on its back is in armor
It’s teeth as sharp as sharks
It is riding to divide you
One against another
Father against son
Sister against brother
Torn asunder
Then devoured

The sword will land
In every hand
Every hand that grasps them
A choice is made
With who to stand
If that choice was not made yet

Hail! Hail! Hail!
The battle cry
Let the wars commence!
Olympic Games not seen yet!
No civility contains them!
The swords are turned
Against each other
Live by them, die by them
Sister and brother

The blood will flow
To the red horse’s bridle
And the one riding it
Will fear no rival
He’ll swim in the blood
Drink it and chortle
Believing it somehow
Will make him immortal

In comes a white horse
Faithful and true
The One riding it
Has a mission to do
His white robe is dipped
In the blood of the saints
His name written
Clear stream, no restraints
It cannot be pronounced
He is King of Kings
Lord of Lords
And He has been announced

In writing for us all to read
In signs up in the sky
He walked this earth
For all to see
He taught us, then he died
A gruesome death on Calvary
He only taught us
The words of our Father
The word from Him on High
After three days spent in the grave
The Father brought Him back to life

The Creator’s first begotten Son
Will stand with the forgotten ones
The ones all shunned by the world
The ones persistent in keeping the Word
Close to their heart
And in their sleep
For they know they know
Their Father will keep them safe

The white horse rides
With our brother astride
The red horse rides with a foe

What one will you stand for?
It is time for you to know
