Revelation at a Glance – Day 14

Rev 6:3-6  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: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. (5) And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.  (6)  And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

Rise and shine, Reader! Grab that favorite beverage and let’s read about what’s to come. It almost sounds like a work of fiction, doesn’t it? Don’t be mistakened, every prophecy from the Bible either has come to past or will come to past! Jesus made this exact comment:

Mat 5:17-18  Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.  (18)  For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

If you think that the Bible is a work of fiction, you will be rudely awakened! Your ignorance does not negate the Bible and all its prophecies. Your ignorance only manages to lead you to a Christless eternity, burning for all eternity! Please, I beg you, ask God to open your eyes and soften your heart toward Him and His prophecies. This time period (the seven-year Tribulation) will be like no other and God’s wrath will be poured out! Please, become part of the Lord’s Bride who will be protected from God’s wrath because we are covered by the blood of His precious Son, the perfect Passover Lamb!

In today’s post, we will cover two seals. These “Horsemen of the Apocolypse” are an overview of judgments to come. In this seal, we see a red horse coming into the picture. Red is the color for terror, blood and carnage. It’s no surprise that there will be much bloodshed at this point. This will be when the Antichrist takes away the peace that started the Tribulation. At this point, there will be all out war on earth and many will die. Notice it says in Revelation 6:4 that a great sword is given to this red horse. Since the judgments are going to be so much worse during these seven years, many will die. We will see this in a later post.

3rd Seal, Famine - Scriptural Interpretation, Picture ...

Revelation 6:5-6 reveals a black horse who holds a pair of balances. Scales were used in those days to measure money and crops. Notice that during this time, a measure of wheat will cost a penny! It may not seem like much to you but in John’s time, a quart of wheat was a day’s wage. In today’s standards, it would be about $200 for a loaf of bread! Once reality sets in, you’ll be able to put two and two together and see what is in store for the godless world.

If you think food and gas prices have soared in 2022, it will be much worse during the Tribulation. I went grocery shopping last week and two plastic bags from Walmart cost me $80, and that did not include meat! Just at the beginning of these seals, we are seeing a drastic increase in hardships!!! Recession has been brought on by a godless government with no care for this country’s inhabitants. The current cost for fuel in May 2022 has gone up 44% in 16 months. Can you imagine the cost of living for an average family during the timeframe of this seal?

In John’s day, only the wealthy could afford oil and wine so it stands to reason that they will continue to eat well, but not so with the rest of the world. The Bible contains truth – all truth! This will be a very difficult time for those who are mid-income level wage earners. And you can forget about the poor! How will they be able to eat? If you think we have a lot of beggars on the street corners, you haven’t seen anything yet. There will be an economic collapse like never before. I can’t even fathom this and it grieves me that people will be so sinful and hard-hearted that they still won’t seek the Lord. It is because of this sinful and hard-hearted people that the judgments will only get worse. They will refuse to turn to God, therefore it will take harsher judgments to get their attention. 😥 It is very much like a child who is raised by parents who do nothing but scream commands. Eventually, the child becomes deaf to his parents’ screaming and only becomes more rebellious. One can see how the world will still have a blind eye toward the things of God.

Dear reader, if you are not saved, it’s not too late to get saved! Salvation is there for the taking if you will choose repentance over earthly and worldly pleasures. The Lord is waiting, knocking at the door of your heart!

Rev 3:20  Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Friend, it is no coincidence that God has placed you here for such a time as this so that you may be saved if you are not already. Please click here and the link will open up in a separate tab to You Can Be Born Again and Know It!
