The first chariot was pulled by red horses, the second by black horses,
"Don't imagine that I came to bring peace to the earth! I came not to bring peace, but a sword.
And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don't panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won't follow immediately.
