The Black Horse and He that Has the Balances Is Passing By, Beware Of the Rider on the Pale Horse

Prelude

The year is 2011. America has grappled with a downswing in its economy causing both the young and old to grovel and grumble about the huge debt incurred over time, citizens are murmuring against a popularly elected president’s inefficacy in leadership as if he is to blame for the nation’s woes. Least do we realize that the black horse and he that had the balances just passed by. It was destined to be as it is now. Let he that has an ear hear what the spirit has to say to the church.

This article was inspired by a section of prophecy in the book of Revelations 6 on the openning of the seals in heaven as the sealed book was handed to the Lamb of God.The vision following the opening of the first seal portrays events nearest to the times of John, while the seventh seal relates to the remotest events, happenings at the end of time, the consummation of the history of the church and the fate of the world. As each seal is opened a symbol is seen which is designed to outline the character of a new epoch. The opening of the seals in Revelation can be topically summarized as follows:

Summary of Revelation 6: The Warrior on the White Horse. The Warrior with the Great Sword. The Black Horse and He That Had the Balances. The Pale Horse, Death and Hades. The Fifth Seal, the Seal of Persecution. The Sixth Seal Opened. A Period of Judgment.

Revelation on the third seal

Revelation 6:5-6 states “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. 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’”. (KJV).

These verses relate to The Black Horse and He That Had the Balances. Lots of prophecies agree on the conclusion that Black is the color of calamity, war, sorrow, mourning and despair. The instruments held in the hand of the horseman, the balances, are used for weighing commodities and symbolize scarcity and famine in the economy.

Oil and wine are entirely prohibited in the decree from heaven. This has a spiritual implication about sparing the oil (Spirit) and the wine (Powerful Strength) – thus, those under the influence of the Holy Spirit. This points to a remnant of the Church of Jesus Christ that lives by the power of the Holy Spirit that is to be spared from harm. Utterances that follow proclaim the state of affairs with regard tocurrent happenings in world trade and states of economies in the world today.

Of concern is what follows the fulfillment of the prophecy of the black horse. Death and Hades are thereafter given authority over a quarter of the earth, to kill with a sword, hunger, famine and beasts of the earth.
