Revelation 6:5 When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.
What can you buy with a day’s pay?
If you make $10/hr then that $80 a day.
$80 can buy gasoline, milk, bread, eggs, canned goods, or one nice dinner out.
The black horse brings inflation and famine where a day’s wages only buys a loaf of bread.
The pandemic showed you the fragility of the supply chain.
There were some price hikes on items but the biggest problem was empty shelves.
Remember no toilet paper, paper towels, or antibacterial wipes?
The meat department was pretty sparse too.
There were also images of food rotting in the field because there were no trucks to transport it to warehouses and processing plants.
It would not take much for all major grocery chains to run out of food.
War (the red rider) could easily disrupt these supply lines or destroy farmland, industry, and refineries.
With these devastating losses all products, services, and foods become scarce and prices rise.
What is the price of your soul?
It is written in Matt 16:26 – what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
There is no famine or wage hike on your salvation.
Jesus paid it for you.
