Synopsis: Man, created in the image of God, sinned against his Maker by eating the forbidden fruit. All of God’s plan to redeem mankind from the scourge of sin pointed to Christ Jesus and his complete work of salvation through His crucifixion, death and resurrection. Man, on the whole, has however rejected the Messiah which is altogether antichrist¾captured by the peace symbol of the 1970’s. So ‘carpe Diem’ or seize the day¾while it lasts! Should one convey a literal approach to eschatology, the day is coming when the Lord will unleash His judgments upon an unsuspecting world enmeshed in sin. The four horsemen with Hades in tow shall sift a generation that will eventually ‘separate the sheep from the goats.’ Why the Maserati logo hints at the fact that the end times shall witness a revived Roman empire. There will be blood and some will burn!
Descend ye horses from heaven’s gate and sift the world asunder till Armageddon’s wake! ~ L.J
