In Revelation 6:5, the third horseman of the apocalypse is set released upon the world, and a voice is heard crying, ‘A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius…’. At the time, this represented a 10 fold increase in the price of those foodstuffs. In America and Europe, we are told there is not enough inflation, as government statistics tell us inflation is almost non-existent, yet this is a great lie for a majority of Americans — those who must receive government assistance to afford the necessities of life.
This a ‘the big lie’ — the government and mass media have learned the basics of propaganda from Nazi Germany itself. Without going into the numbers again, we need to just look at the ongoing demand for help from food banks –
Despite what government statistics say is the rate of inflation, the cost of food keeps rising (as well as the cost to rent) and this is especially true given that wages (for those who have jobs) are stagnant (or declining for those who are forced to take pay cuts for various reasons). The ongoing need for food banks in America is one way this phenomenon is being manifested. I would argue that the 3rd horseman of the apocalypse has indeed been set loose upon the world (and most likely, Death and Hades are also now laying claim to their quarter of the world).
