The Black Horseman
The white and Red horsemen fit together with Matthew well the next two riders not so much. Matthew says Nation will rise against Nation and Kingdom against Kingdom. This should have happened in the mid 1920's to fit in with the first two riders. In the mid 1920's two major events happened that caused this the conflict. Firstly the Soviet Union started. The true Soviet Union came into existence when Stalin took over in 1924. The battle of the USSR and the west caused world wide conflict between nations. In 1924 the Federal Reserve was set up in the USA. This Reserve bank and the whole reserve bank system has been a miserable failure and the main cause of money imbalances. It was by individuals in order to give an elite a dominating power over the entire earth. Why the reserve banks cause massive imbalances and poverty is a book in it's own right. Interesting reading if you have the time. The result caused and is still causing at an ever increasing rate
The Black rider has a pair of scales in his hand. We think today of scales being justice but to John it would have been trade. The balancing of one weight against another. Today, as has always been, there is a different standard of justice between the rich and the poor. Prices of goods are being set not by demand but by the will of the seller if he has control. We see that in the rise of the multinational companies and international banks. They just do what they want without fear of punishment. This has all been established using the reserve bank system.
The control of food prices and how you are to buy them are plain to see. However once we get into the tribulation things are going to get very bad. We are seeing the mechanics of how the mark of the beast will work in front of eyes right now. Add the new block chain technology and the unlimited control it gives. The control will be absolute. Note that the more expensive items are not to be touched. A reflection of the gap between rich and poor and the different standards of justice between the rich and poor.
The last rider is to come if White 1844, Red 1884, Black 1924, the Pale or Green Horseman will be 1964.
