The Black Horse Rider: Famine, Total Social Breakdown, Spirits From Hell
Total social disorder and the destruction of all authority are the quick results of the Tribulation beginning.
These Four Horsemen represent the complete failure of human control. It will be a world without order. Every man or woman will be their own authority. The idea that there are no rules or moral standards will finally reach its ultimate end and mankind will be like the animals of the forest.
This is what Satan has always sought to create. Satan’s world of demons is like a wilderness of terror. Study the pathway of men and women that have sought to live by demon spirits and to be used of these familiar spirits. They will tell of incredible abuse and fighting by different spirits for control of their lives. The pathway to being a witch or a wizard is like a path through hell. This is exactly what the devils out of hell will turn loose on this earth.
This scripture of the Black Horse Rider is extremely clear. “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.” (Revelation 6: 5-6) When the total earth is suffering a simultaneous famine, it will be terror. When the multitudes are without control and starving, there will be no stopping their destruction. Couple this with every conceivable natural disaster and the antiChrist throng of wicked people killing anyone that names the name of Jesus Christ and the world will be like hell.
The darkness is revealed in this paragraph from my book:
“The darkness, as revealed in this seal, is now reaching the pandemic stage. This third Cherubim cries, “Come and see,” and what we see is sheer horror. The horse is black, showing the symbol of hellish blackness descending on this earth. The rider of this horse has a scale or a pair of balances in his hand suggesting a famine on a total scale. Now, we see all four of the cherubim together and one cries out with a mournful cry of coming drought, crop failure, starvation, and death. The insanity that follows the disaster of starvation and famine is impossible to describe. Never has there been such a worldwide famine at the same time. To even consider the kind of beastly human behavior during a worldwide loss of the food chain is terror.” Actually this opening of this seal is closely associated with the release of demons out of hell itself.
The great divide between the earth and its inhabitants and hell and its inhabitants has always remained a mystery. Upper Sheol in the First Testament was the abode of the righteous dead, and Lower Sheol and Hell fire was the abode of the wicked dead. Even between these two separate locations, there was an impossible gap. Abraham plainly told the rich man in hell that none could pass between the two abodes. “And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence”. (Luke 16:26) Jesus told this great story to teach the truth of man’s eternal destiny. The gulf between the two abodes was very narrow compared to the gulf between earth and hell. In fact, man is forbidden to ever consider communication with the dead across that gulf.
Scripture teaches us clearly that the abode of the wicked is in the heart of the earth. Upper Sheol no longer exists because Jesus Christ led the captives out of their captivity, and they ascended with Him to dwell in His presence. They are awaiting the resurrection of their body. The righteous dead in the Old Testament could not escape death and its bondage until Jesus Christ was crucified and arose from the dead. Now, the gulf is only between Lower Sheol and the earth. No one should attempt any contact with hell or the people that are damned to eternal fire. Those in hell are awaiting the White Throne Judgment, where they will appear and give account to the rejected Creator of this universe, whom they have rejected.
Hell is not just a place of wicked men and women but also a place where fallen angels are already being judged. Jude spoke of this when warning the church about wicked men. “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire”. (Jude 1:6-7) The apostle Peter also reminded us of the judgments of angels that had already begun. “For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment”. (II Peter 2:4) Where the Son of God met demon-possessed individuals, the demons would beg not to be dismissed into the deep, clearly referring to Hell or the bottomless pit.
Humans can become so wicked that they take on the same characteristics of fallen angels or demons. Jude gave references to humans that had become beasts. “Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core”. (Jude 1: 8, 10, 11) Calling humans “brute beasts” certainly suggests a dark state of character. Hell is inhabited with the darkest of all fallen angels and the godless and wicked throughout more than six thousand years of human history. They have festered in their vileness and grow increasingly wicked by the day. Our Father and the Lamb are going to unleash a multitude of this wicked crowd right on the earth.
The darkest place in God’s universe is about to open onto the earth. Remember that Jesus Christ, the Lamb, opened the seventh seal, and out from that seal appeared seven angels with seven trumpets. This is the fifth of those angels sounding their trumpets. Another angel, one of the seven Cherubim assigned to His churches, descended quickly from heaven. Remember, an individual angel or cherubim was assigned to each church during the Church Dispensation. The seven stars were the angels of the seven churches, which are now established in heaven since the Rapture. They are the defenders of righteousness in the earth and that includes redemption and judgment. No one, demon or human, which has ever been assigned to that pit has ever been released. The gate has never been unlocked on the ex-it side of this dark chasm. Everything and everyone inside the bottomless pit is as wicked as they could possibly be. They are corrupt with corrupting personalities and have longed for an opportunity to vent their fury. If this crowd had not been held in captivity, this earth would have descended into an even darker and deeper vileness. Their captivity has been part of God’s restrictive plan until the fated hour should arrive.
When the great gate is opened, the smoke of this furnace quickly darkens the universe. The sun and moon is hid, and the atmosphere is darkened by the very spirit and darkness out of this frightful abyss. No doubt the smoke is but a conveyor of a stench and presence that darkens the mind of every soul it touches. There will be no pure light until this open door to hell is closed, and it will not be closed until this seal is finished.
I believe you are getting the picture of what these four horses and their riders are unleashing on this earth. People that argue for the Rapture not to occur until all this hell is over are foolish teachers. The saints of God are His chosen, and His love for them is unfailing. He will not leave us here for this dark time of judgment. Remember His promise to the Philadelphian church. “Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown”. (Revelation 3:10-11) I’ll see you in the Rapture!
Oh, yes, I’ll see you in the Rapture.
I’ll see you in the Rapture.
I’ll see you at that meeting in the air.
There with our blessed Savior, we will
Live and reign forever.
I’ll see you in the Rapture some sweet day.
