Black Horse – Famine and Pestilence

Revelation 6:5-6 is a focus on the third of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse – Famine and Pestilence.

These verses say:

”When 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. And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”

The instructions not to damage the oil and the wine suggest luxuries will still be available for the wealthy. Revelation 13:11-17 implies the beast, coming world leader will control the global economy. Look at the verse in Revelation 13:17 which says “…no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark of the beast…” Amos 8:11 also warns of another type of famine. It says, “Behold, the days are coming,” declares the Lord GOD, “when I will send a famine on the land — not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD”.
