The Rider of the Black Horse

Revelation 6:

When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” And I looked, and behold, a black horse! And its rider had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”

Back in 2012 I blogged about how our economy was hijacked and replaced with a system designed to result in catastrophic failure.

That catastrophe is now staring us in the face.

Many harbingers are coalescing in the month of September, including the climax of the blood moons, the end of the shemitah year, Yom Teruah/Rosh Hashanna, and the Pope is scheduled to give his New World Order speech at the United Nations on Yom Kippur…just to name a few.

The beginning of the end (that is: the great granddaddy of all stock market crashes) is expected by some to finally tip the collapse of the US dollar in September.

The wild see-sawing of stocks we’ve been seeing in the last week are probably pre-tremors. Birth pangs, if you will.

I’m not an economist or a stock speculator, and won’t pretend to know all the details of how this is going to go down; but the Bible has given us some important highlights.

The rider with the scales, and what is said about him, tells us that runaway inflation is coming. (Go figure: honest economists are only about 2000 years behind in predicting the same thing on our doorstep.) In the New World order, assuming you can find a paying job, a day’s wages is only going to provide the bare minimum you need to survive. And if you have luxury items (like oil or wine) you had better take care of them.

The US Dollar was replaced with Federal Reserve Notes a century ago, and the once-robust economy, industrial base and infrastructure were gradually poisoned and strangled into this position where collapse is inevitable. Failure by design. Our fiat currency (and most, if not all, currencies around the world) will crash soon. There may be some transitional regional currencies offered as the solution for a period of time, but we know from the Bible (and the objectives of the globalists) that ultimately there will be a one-world monetary system. Popular opinion doesn’t support such an economic consolidation…yet.

Remember that the conditions in Germany that most helped a genocidal despot rise to power were economic. The  runaway inflation got so ridiculous that it took a shopping cart full of DeutscheMarks to buy a loaf of bread. Fear and physical discomfort (like hunger and starvation) are the most effective motivations to cause people to do what they wouldn’t normally go along with.

There is a whole lot of fear and starvation headed your way, America.

Precious treasure and oil are in a wise man’s dwelling,
but a foolish man devours it.

Proverbs 21:20 ESV

A shrewd person sees danger and hides himself,
but the naive keep right on going and suffer for it.

Proverbs 22:3 NET

The word of the Lord came to me:  “Son of man, speak to your people, and say to them, ‘Suppose I bring a sword against the land, and the people of the land take one man from their borders and make him their watchman.  He sees the sword coming against the land, blows the trumpet, and warns the people, but there is one who hears the sound of the trumpet yet does not heed the warning. Then the sword comes and sweeps him away. He will be responsible for his own death. He heard the sound of the trumpet but did not heed the warning, so he is responsible for himself. If he had heeded the warning, he would have saved his life.'”

Ezekiel 33:1-5 NET
