"When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come and see!” Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make men slay each other. To him was given a large sword."
Riding upon a red horse was the fearsome Horseman of War, who caused open warfare across the land of man.
Unlike Conquest, the Horseman of War specialises in waging war between nations and people rather than internal strife.
The color of the horse, coupled with the rider's sword, symbolises the great bloodshed that must ultimately befall the world, and to some he also symbolises divine wrath and spiritual warfare, making him even more formidable than he already appears.
Among the Four Horsemen, War is said to be the second most powerful, behind Death itself. Since the concept and theme of war itself seems endless, the Horsemen is seemingly an unstoppable rampaging juggernaut of destruction.
