Rev 6:3When he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.
5When 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. 6And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, “A quarta of wheat for a denarius,b and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”
When we look at seal 2 we see that peace is taken from the earth. If we look at the geopolitical environment tensions are escalating between the west and the east (R***** and China). Domestically we see violence in the streets almost every day. We see growing division along every fault line imaginable. One of the most obvious divisions is now the "race card." Anyone who is a white Christian male is now being demonized as public enemy number 1. The last time the world saw this much focus on race was 80 years ago in a place called Germany. Hitler was promoting his "master race." Today is no different only the script has flipped. Instead of white=good, brown=bad, now brown=good, white=bad. What's the difference? The Nazi's never left, they just went underground and now they run the western world.
The Nazi's started world war 2 and now they are trying to start world war 3 in addition to creating civil wars around the world. Division is being created everywhere between races, the vaccinated vs unvaccinated, mask wearers vs non mask wearers, west vs east, religion vs religion (Islam=good, Christian and Jewish=bad), rich vs poor, left vs right, you get the idea. Are people about ready to kill each other? You be the judge. The divide we see among various elements of society is wide and growing, any middle ground that once existed is now out the window.
That is seal 2^^, are we there? That is debatable but the trend is certainly in the "people will slay each other" direction.
How about seal 3?
These two guys do a good job of outlining what is happening with food: channel 1, channel 2. Bill Gates and other billionaires are buying up farmland so they can shut it down. The government in the UK is actually paying farmers not to produce with contracts that give them a payout today that prohibits them from ever producing again. Why would they do that? Combine this with the solar minimum that the earth is entering and you have a recipe for seal 3 fulfillment.
The question is, are we there today? Same answer as seal two, food is scarce in some parts of the world but the trend is toward famine becoming more widespread.
We will wrap this up in post 3.
Grace and peace
