When the swords rise, as written, sinister power and forces will try to take posession of the human race and their faith, pleasure and fear. They will be restless as long as they are victorious. The human race is told lies till it thinks it is in safety but then the power of evil will show them his true face and destroy the human race by the winds of war.
