“And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast (living creature) say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo, a black horse; and he that sat upon him had a pair of balances (scales) in his hand.
And I heard a voice in the midst of of the four beasts (living creatures) say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny (denarius); and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine” Revelation 6:5
This is picking back up where we left off in our study of America, oh, err… Mystery Babylon the Great 😉
Yeah, well we know it’s not that much of a mystery now, and I am just going to get real honest right here… Now would be a really good time to let it sink in that the end time lady, who brags that she sits a Queen and is no widow is none other than America the Great.
This is hard for anyone to deal with and I have wrestled for years with my calling as a messenger of tidings that people often do not want to hear, I didn’t even want to acknowledge it myself, much less proclaim it .
I love America, I love my people but just as God brought judgment on Israel of old, we are no different and he actually said this, “For, lo, I begin to bring evil (calamity) on the city which is called by my name, and should you be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished; for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the Lord of hosts.” Jeremiah 25:29
That’s the problem, the nations have been deceived and rebelled against God and God will judge that and no nation is so entitled and so righteous as to be above God and his commands, that is the transition from Blessed Great to Wicked Babylon the Great.
We know that the name of Babylon is her spiritual name, she is referred to as a mystery because her identity was not foretold, as she did not even exist as of the time her rebellion against God and subsequent judgement and destruction were foretold and prophesied by prophets of old, including Jeremiah, as Jeremiah had Seraiah read his written words of the judgments laid out by God and then throw the book into the Euphrates it would reflect as the end time angelic activities directed toward earth,
So to go on with, as Columbo would say, “That cat’s outta the bag”, very interesting term, even more interesting for our purpose here, the origin is not quite certain, and there are several, but it is a term for the revealing of an act that is discovered to have been a deception.
One thought is that merchants would suppose to sell someone a baby pig, but once money and the bag containing the pig had changed hands and the buyer went their way and later opened the bag to find a cat instead.
Hence therefore also, our term “A pig in a poke.” and our southern warning, to never buy “A pig in a poke,”
And people, hear me, all the inflation, rising gas prices, merchandise shortages, and shipping stockpiles are being used in conjunction with the forced vaccine mandates, to sell you nothing more than a very deadly “pig in a poke” and what is going to be found at the bottom of that bag is far worse than Corona and five dollar gallons of gas.
Lets first talk about financial judgment God brings against nations.
One warning here that God gave against nations forgetting that all blessing comes from him and his provision.
And when you apply this to the thought that God allowed the pilgrims to come to this land, and whether people want to deal with it or not, America was originally settled by people who only wanted to serve God, Jehovah God, without persecution and fear.
They gave up everything and many died in the process, they left everything and came to a foreign land with nothing waiting for them, except freedom!
They had no prebuilt homes, they had no provisions laid up waiting for them to arrive.
They came only with faith and unimageable courage, and they came to worship the one true God, and even with their poverty, starvation, sickness, and toil they did not give up, they did not complain and they were thankful, they were thankful because they were free!
The evil ones came later, the Indian killers, and land stealers, and evil, evil slave traders, and all the evil and wickedness that has borne the beast that the Babylon has become, that same evil force that crept in and deluded minds and literally possessed politicians that now just your basic common affection has gone out the door, and the slaughter of millions of our own babies proving that every single day, and the desire of many to allow abortions to nine month term is truly a horrific development.
And you have to wonder when these people scream about this being a right and not bat an eyelash to the fact that this is a human being, this is a baby, this is a child who if born a month early to parents who wanted it would be given specialized care, but not wanted would be labeled, full term, as a ‘product of conception” and absolutely murdered at the hands of someone professing to be a doctor, who has taken an oath to do no harm!!??
Slaughter is about as harmful as it gets! So again, don’t question why.
But I will tell you this also, as we get into this study further, we will be looking at the end time inability to die, which I believe is judgment because they no regard for life, so when God rains down judgments and they think they can commit suicide and escape it, he supernaturally takes away their ability to die, no matter what they do, they can not die, and they will not die until he allows them to die, once and for all assuring all that he is the Creator and he is ultimately who will control death and life, as was the original intention.
I am so thankful for the Godly leaders that are standing up and fighting against it, they will be able to stand and give account to the Lord that they did do everything in their power to stand for what is right.
So let’s take a look at that warning.
“Thou shalt also consider (know) in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so the Lord thy God chasteneth thee. Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways and fear him.
For the Lord thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains, and depths that spring out of valleys and hills.
A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates, and oil olive, and honey;
A land wherein though shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack any thing in it: a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass.
When thou hast eaten and are full, then thou shalt bless the Lord thy God for the good land which he hath given thee.
Beware that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statues, which I command thee this day.
Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly (beautiful) houses, and dwelt therein;
And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;
Then thine heart be lifted up (becomes proud) and thou forget the Lord thy God, which brought the out of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought forth water out of the rock of flint.
Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove (test) thee, to do the good at thy later end.
*And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine (my) hand hath gotten me this wealth.
But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth , that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.
As did the nations which the Lord destroyed before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the Lord your God.” Deuteronomy 8:5-20
Now let’s read a little of those judgments being pronounced. Shall we?
“A sword is upon (against) the Chaldeans, saith the Lord, and upon the inhabitants of Babylon, and upon her princes, and her wise men.
A sword is upon the liars (against the soothsayers, physics), and they shall dote (be fools); a sword is upon her mighty men; and they shall be dismayed.
A sword is upon their horses, and upon their chariots, and upon the mingled people that are in the midst of her; and they shall become as women: a sword is upon her treasures; and they shall be robbed.
A drought is upon her waters; and they shall be dried up; for it is a land of graven images, and they are mad upon (insane with) their idols.” Jeremiah 50: 35-38
We will be coming back to this chapter, Lord will, in a later post, but this is the Lord calling for a sword, which means, supernatural divine judgment, against all the mediums, psychics and sorcery , and the weaponry, which we have already seen a little of that one, but will get more into later, but also we see us, the land of mingled people, a land made up of all races, mixed and all inhabiting one nation, Babylon the Great, and we see that sword upon her treasures, and if you will remember, we discussed that in a prior post with great detail.
So you can see that the economic collapse will come as a judgment so there will be no human correction of it, but what will happen and is happening is that it is being used as a tool and will be used as a tool to literally starve people into submission, submission to an agenda that is so dark and so evil and will ultimately lead to the anti-Christ’s enactment of the mark of the beast.
At this particular moment, the screws are tightening, threats of defunding for every reason known to man, have been going on for awhile now and have just escalated with threats of either vaccinate or lose your jobs and if these rules aren’t enforced by the companies who do not even necessarily want to impose these demands on their employees than whatever funding, in some cases, that they depend on will be taken away.
It comes down to forcing people to forego their rights and liberties, to do as they are told in order to have food, shelter, and necessities of life and to establish the “normalcy” of socialism, you know, spring it on you a little at a time, making more ridiculous demands with each step of the process and each step of teh process having greater financial consequence if “disobeyed”.
At the end of teh day is just one more of teh pigs in a poke that America and teh world are being saddled with, and this is not a vaccinate or not vaccinate post, we must make our own choices, but make sure it is a choice of your own choosing because it is all just part of groundwork being laid to one day lead people to the ultimate choice.
A choice for your soul, when people have been starved out and the demand is made take this mark, sware allegiance to the devil incarnate and sell your very soul for the ‘privilege’ of buying food for a body, that after having received the mark, will then immediately fall under tormenting judgments, so tortured to even eat and a soul now lost to be condemned to an eternal hell.
Don’t buy their pigs in pokes, remember the pigs that legion was cast into, well, these pigs are carry the same cargo.
I’ll end it with our beginning scripture to put it all in prospective for you, a penny might not sound like much, until you realize that refers to and entire day’s wage, read it again, and ponder that.
The Zondervan KJV Study Bible dictionary note explains it as this, that would be about one quart of wheat, barely enough for one person, three quarts of the barley, which is not having much nutritional value, would be what a family would have for their meal.
The penny is equivalent to an entire day’s wages, famine causing prices to be ten times higher than average.
So for us, that would be like working an entire day for one slice of bread.
The wine and oil refers to the children of God, so trust him and do not do anything until you pray and ask God’s guidance and then have your boundary and let no one force you to cross it, because once a personal boundary is crossed, the enemy is one step closer to ensuring that we have no boundaries and then he will us.
