Brothers and Sisters the 2nd Seal of Revelation is open and we must understand what is going on in this world now as we are moving right along for The Return of Abba Yah/ The Lord God Almighty.
As always we will use the Lexicon and our dictionaries to understand the terms in these verses.
And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
4 And there went out another horse that was red G4450: and power was given G1325 to him that sat thereon to take G2983 peace G1515 from G575 the earth G1093, and that they should kill G4969 one another G240: and there was given G1325 unto him a great G3173 sword.
red-G4450-†πυῤῥόςpyrrhós, poor-hros'; from G4442; fire-like, i.e. (specially), flame- colored:—red.
Again we will look at where this word is derived from and that is G4442

Oxford Dictionary Defines fire as:

to take-G2983-λαμβάνωlambánō, lam-ban'-o; a prolonged form of a primary verb, which is use only as an alternate in certain tenses; to take (in very many applications, literally and figuratively (properly objective or active, to get hold of; whereas G1209 is rather subjective or passive, to have offered to one; while G138 is more violent, to seize or remove)):—accept, + be amazed, assay, attain, bring, × when I call, catch, come on (X unto), + forget, have, hold, obtain, receive (X after), take (away, up).

This horse takes away all things that are meant for Abba Yah's Good and ushers in things full of arrogance, derogatory to Yah and targets the mind. This horse also removes integrity, virtue and stability, for peace is stability and a Fruit of The Spirit of Yah.
sword-G3162-μάχαιραmáchaira, makh'-ahee-rah; probably feminine of a presumed derivative of G3163; a knife, i.e. dirk; figuratively, war, judicial punishment:—sword.

The Oxford English Dictionary defines "war" as:
A state of armed conflict between different countries or different groups within a country.
A state of competition or hostility between different people or groups.
A sustained campaign against an undesirable situation or activity.
There are several reasons for conflict and war to begin within and between nations. Among these are economic gain, territorial gain, religion, nationalism, civil war, and revolution. Often, countries' leaders are the primary motivator of conflict between and within nations when they test their limits, such as instigating a territorial dispute, trying to control another country's natural resources, or exercising authoritarian power over people.

What is Nineveh Called Today?
city of Mosul
Nineveh, the oldest and most-populous city of the ancient Assyrian empire, situated on the east bank of the Tigris River and encircled by the modern city of Mosul, Iraq.
Woe to the bloody city! it is all full of lies and robbery; the prey departeth not;
2 The noise of a whip, and the noise of the rattling of the wheels, and of the pransing horses, and of the jumping chariots.
3 The horseman lifteth up both the bright sword and the glittering spear: and there is a multitude of slain, and a great number of carcases; and there is none end of their corpses; they stumble upon their corpses:
4 Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the wellfavoured harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts.
5 Behold, I am against thee, saith the Lord of hosts; and I will discover thy skirts upon thy face, and I will shew the nations thy nakedness, and the kingdoms thy shame.
6 And I will cast abominable filth upon thee, and make thee vile, and will set thee as a gazingstock.
In Jonah's time Nineveh was spared because they Repented of their sins.

We must Remember that Abba Yah has Not Changed the Name of the Land in the Bible so to put things into perspective we are going to look at our map again that we used when we covered Noah dividing the Whole earth between his sons. Here we see the outline of Egypt, Ethiopia and Libya as well as Arabia.
The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord God; Howl ye, Woe worth the day!
3 For the day is near, even the day of the Lord is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen.
4 And the sword shall come upon Egypt, and great pain shall be in Ethiopia, when the slain shall fall in Egypt, and they shall take away her multitude, and her foundations shall be broken down.
5 Ethiopia, and Libya, and Lydia, and all the mingled people, and Chub, and the men of the land that is in league, shall fall with them by the sword.
6 Thus saith the Lord; They also that uphold Egypt shall fall; and the pride of her power shall come down: from the tower of Syene shall they fall in it by the sword, saith the Lord God.
7 And they shall be desolate in the midst of the countries that are desolate, and her cities shall be in the midst of the cities that are wasted.
Starting in 2006, the Mexican Drug War is the Mexican theater for the war on drugs. It is a relatively low-intensity conflict between the Mexican government and multiple drug trafficking syndicates.

Civil Unrest in The United States- verisk.com
2020 appears to be one for the record books.
Fueled by a destabilizing mix of police violence, armed confrontations between citizens, protests, riots, and a rampaging pandemic, the United States recorded one of the largest deteriorations on the Verisk Maplecroft Civil Unrest Index over the past year—leapfrogging from the 91st riskiest jurisdiction by the second quarter of 2020 to the 34th by the fourth quarter of 2020. The index assesses the risk of disruption to business caused by the mobilization of societal groups in response to economic, political, or social factors. It includes a spectrum of incidents of unrest, from protests to violent mass demonstrations and rioting.
While the year isn’t over, this unrest has already resulted in record-setting insured losses. According to Verisk Property Claims Services (PCS), cumulative insured losses from civil unrest in the United States are estimated to top $2 billion in 2020, making it the costliest year for these kinds of losses since PCS record keeping began.
Civil Unrest Predictions- maplecroft.com
With no end to the pandemic-induced economic downturn in sight, the rebound in protests is unlikely to subside any time soon. Our two-year Civil Unrest projections expect 75 countries, well over a third of the 198 jurisdictions in our database, will experience an increase in civil unrest by August 2022.

Bible Verses on This Destruction and the Return of Abba Yah
1 Thessalonians 5:3- ESV
While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
Matthew 24:21-22 KJV
For then there will be great G3173 tribulation G2347, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened
It is important to discern the times in which we live. Abba Yah's Return is Soon. Are you taking part of this First Resurrection and Building a Life based Upon Abba Yah's Morals, Values and Ethics or are you still under the Law of Sin and Death awaiting Judgement Day. Why wait to be judged based on your merits when you can build a Relationship with The One True Creator who Loves you?
