The Rider On the
Image: Artist Unknown
5. Then the Lamb opened the third seal, and I heard the third living creature say, "Come!" Then I looked and saw a black horse, and its rider held in his hand a pair of scales.
6. And I heard a voice from among the four living creatures, saying, "A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barely for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and the wine."
The rider on the black horse seems to correspond to the Beast's feet of a bear that crushes and tramples. In Scripture, a bear represents something incorporated to become powerful, and in these days, it represents corporations, or corporatism. This includes big banks, and in particular, world banks or the world banking system, but mostly corporate interests.
Few people realize that politicians and presidents do not run the world, but large corporations run it, dominate it, and they crush the poor and middle class through debt, and through laws that are made specifically to keep the powerful in power: to keep the rich rich, and to keep the poor poor.
(Many politicians in America enter office as middle class citizens, but they leave office multi-millionaires, and they walk right into high-paying executive jobs at big corporations. How? Because while they were in office, they were using their authority to help the rich corporations; and in turn, the corporations make them wealthy.)
Governments and intelligence communities are in league with the big corporations. It is a global empire, but it is an empire that is secret from most people. It is a clandestine world empire.
The short documentary below, "Confessions of an Economic Hit-man", can tell the facts far better than I can. But suffice to say, what John Perkins reveals in the documentary is telling of the Beast's bear paws, crushing the majority of people, and trampling down their resources. Proverbs 13:23 says, "Abundant food is in the fallow ground of the poor, but injustice sweeps it away."
For a long time, I could not understand the part of the verse concerning the black horse that indicated that a loaf of bread was going take a day's wages to buy, which is financial hardship, but it then said not to harm the oil and the wine. Why? What was with the oil and the wine, and who would harm it anyway? And what was the definition of harming it? But, I see it now.
Corporatism controls and dominates the nations of the earth; globalism is merely global corporatism, and while it's crushing the middle class and poor, it's also trampling down everything else with its feet, so that it's extremely difficult for the poor to ever get a foothold out of their misery. The rich corporations protect themselves and their riches, and they work together to protect one another. Wine and oil is another way of saying the riches of the corporations and the world bank.
A loaf of bread indicates common necessities, and for most people, they live paycheck to paycheck just for those necessities due to high inflation; and inflation is deliberately brought about from the actions of the world banks, who are simply an arm of big corporations. However, at the same time, the rich live high-on-the-hog by way of that high inflation, with sumptuous pleasures and outrageous wealth and debauchery. (See video: Dutch banker revealing Satanic pedophile ring used to blackmail the elite to keep them too afraid to tell the truth about the industry.)
The voice that says, ". . . and do not harm the oil or the wine," is the "insider's voice" of the corporations and the big banks' talking to each other as they greedily scheme against the entire rest of the world. It's not about wine or oil; wine and oil symbolizes the wealth, luxury, and power of the corporations. They're warning each other to maintain their protection of one another, and keep the masses tamped-down.
The black horse represents economic hardship for most of the world, but it's brought-on deliberately by the black-clad, wicked corporations, and it rides out to economically destroy and take possession of the weak of the world. This is also the Beast's bear feet crushing the people economically.
(Amazon, one of the riches conglomerates in the world, with its owner, Jeff Bezos, billed at times to be the richest man in the world, is accused of treating its warehouse workers like dogs, and crushing them with excessive and nearly impossible work loads. This is a thumbnail of the Beast's bear paws, and the black horse and rider, who crush the weak and exalt the rich corporation. Amazon is also accused of putting thousands of small businesses out of business, and so is Walmart, the most wealthy corporation in the world.)
The scales that the rider holds represents global trade, but what was supposed to be fair-trade is secretly unfair manipulation of the entire economic system, and only the rich corporations and bankers prosper. They'll whisper to one another: "Protect the oil and wine, and protect our interests from the unwashed masses!"
I believe it is all in black, the horse and the rider, because all of this is done under the cover of darkness, or secretly.
And this is going on today, and has been going on for a long time.
