This past year, 2020, feels like a byword at this point to me. It actually feels like a word I can’t say, well should not say. You see, I am a Christian. As I have watched this past year unfold, the word apocalypse also came to mind, along with the above mentioned byword. The more that has happened around the world the more a prophetic puzzle is coming together. Really, there are some significant current events that are aligning with ancient words.
Here is why this information could be very helpful. If you understand the puzzle pieces from prophecy you can have a heads up to make appropriate decisions. From my personal experience, it is very time consuming to unravel the many passages about what is going on. So, I am going to set forward the comparison of scripture with current events so you can contemplate them.
Event One – Corona Virus Outbreak 2019 – The word corona means crown.
Event Two – Conflict on many levels of humanity worldwide.
Event Three – Damage to food production, storage, and distribution worldwide with finical stress
Here is why these three events in the order they have unfolded actually match the sequence of the opening of the seals in the book of Revelation.
Seal One is opened – A white horse is sent out. The rider has a bow and a crown is given to him. His goes out conquering and to conquer
Seal Two is opened – A red horse is sent out. The rider is given a great sword to take peace from the earth.
Seal Three is opened – A black horse is sent out. The rider has a pair of balances in his hands and he says a measure of wheat for a penny.
Here is the connection between the events and the seals:
One is the concept that the rider of the white horse is given a corona (crown) and he goes out to conquering and to conquer. If you consider the effect of the Corona Virus, it has weakened the economic systems of the nations of earth. Now, the governments are much more vulnerable to dramatic change that could usher in a completely new governmental structure.
Two is the concept that conflict is showing up at so many levels in humanity. The rider of the red horse takes peace from the earth. It now is starting to be normal to see images of anger and destruction very wide spread on earth. There are even international conflicts that are showing up.
Three is the food insecurity problem. While everyone was focused on the virus really ugly things were happening in the food production and harvesting sectors. At a worldwide level there have been natural disasters that have lowered the food supply. The black horse rider says mentions food and money. We also see a devaluing of currency that would make food prices go up. When the two things are put together it is going to cause suffering to lots of people worldwide.
In conclusion, here is the very unhappy thought, the fourth seal that is opened sends out the pale horse. His rider is death and he is given authority of one fourth of the earth. Death uses the first three seals ( Plague, Violence and Famine ) to kill. The beasts of the earth are also mentioned as causing death. We have not seen this horse become visible yet, but if it does it would be helpful to understand what is happening.
6 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. 2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
3 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.
7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
