As I go through headlines, and articles, I’m seeing a consistent message. The world is changing drastically and not for the better. I’d like to emphasize that these are simply my opinions based on what I’m reading. I could be wrong. I’d rather try to be safe than sorry.

Unfortunately, too many people seem oblivious to what may well be impending global disaster. They think the rise in fuel prices and shortages of food and supplies are temporary and will return to normal. I try to point things out to our grown children (without scaring them), and while they are doing things to mitigate against potential upcoming shortages, I’m not sure they even understand the frailty of the situation. Who among us really can be fully aware of the possibilities?

Drought
For those unaware, there have been major areas of drought in parts of the USA and the world. Crops normally planted at a certain time were delayed or the ones that were might not have enough water to bring those crops to harvest. On the other hand, in other areas, prolonged heavy rains created a delay in planting so that will mean a delay in harvest. Overly wet conditions also created disease in crops and animals.

Bird Flu
The world is also allegedly experiencing a major outbreak of Avian flu. Because of this, some countries are destroying millions of poultry to eliminate the flu. This is even happening in the USA where questionable PCR tests are being used to determine conditions of backyard flocks with some states carrying portable gas chambers to kill birds on the spot. In the UK, there are no more free-range chickens. All chickens must be kept inside. Obviously, this will affect the amount of chicken and eggs available in grocery stores throughout the world.

Exports
Russia is one of the biggest exporters of wheat and oil. Now, due to sanctions by many nations including the USA against Russia, President Putin has stopped exports except to those countries which are “friendly” to Russia. We are already seeing the results of this at the gas pump with prices that have essentially more than doubled since Trump was in the White House. We can be assured that things will get worse as the Biden administration pleads with countries like Iran and Venezuela to sell us oil. We need to remember that one of Biden’s first executive orders after becoming president was to shut down the Keystone Pipeline. That pipeline – when completed – would have had the capacity to produce 833,000 barrels of oil each day, but that will not happen now. This is certainly part of the reason we are seeing higher gas prices and unless a miracle happens, those prices will continue to climb.

The same is said of wheat and other grains. Russia is not exporting wheat to the USA because Putin claims that the USA and the EU have reneged on its debt payments and have frozen Russian assets. This will simply devolve into something worse than it is now. Here is a short clip of Putin outlining the problem as he sees it. The link takes you to Telegram, which may or may not be accessible to you if you do not have the Telegram app on your computer or phone.

China seems to have seen the problem between Russia and the Ukraine coming as they’ve been stockpiling wheat and other grains for some time now. They are determined to ensure that they have food for the Chinese people. Turkey is friendly to Russia to ensure they can continue to import wheat and oil from Russia. Russia has oil and wheat and much of the world is siding against Russia including the USA. Seems to me Russia holds some very important cards that they are now beginning to play. The sanctions against Russia may completely backfire.

We also know that the supply chain has been negatively impacted due to the original economic shutdown roughly two years ago due to CV. That shutdown, with only businesses considered “essential” allowed to remain open, caused a huge backlog and delayed disruption in the supply chain, which is now coming home to roost.

The Seals
So with all of this, what’s happening? Can we know? Well, no matter how we view it, it simply doesn’t look good. In fact, if I did not know better I’d think that the opening of the first few seals of Revelation 6 were lining up. What do those seals entail?

And I looked, and behold, a white horse! And its rider had a bow, and a crown was given to him, and he came out conquering, and to conquer. (Revelation 6:2 ESV)

There are of course, disagreements over the first seal and the identity of the rider on the white horse, with some believing it to be Jesus, while others believe the rider is the Antichrist. I’m with the latter group. The crown the rider wears is certainly a crown of authority but it is not the same type of crown Jesus would wear. Beyond this, though the rider carries a bow, he has no arrows. He conquers, but clearly does so politically, not with instruments of war.

Is Putin the Antichrist? The fact that he is actually involved in a physical war and using ground troops likely means he is not the Antichrist at least for now. It is difficult if not impossible to identify the Antichrist simply because he may not yet be on the scene. However, also note from Revelation 6 that when the Antichrist does appear, it seems as though he will be on the scene a while before he brings about one of his major goals: piece between Israel and surrounding Arab nations. We really have no idea how long after Antichrist appears that he will successfully broker a fake peace deal in the Middle East. But I tend to envision him being on the scene for some time while he works his magic politically, beginning his rise to the top to cement his position as “peacemaker.” I can’t see this happening overnight.

That’s the interesting thing about the seals (and trumpets and bowls). While it appears that the seals are a chronological occurrence of events, we have no clue how long each will last or how much time passes between each seal. They could occur rapidly one after another or greatly spaced out.

As stated before, we know the exact event that begins the Tribulation – the signing of the peace deal for one “week” (Daniel 9:24-27) – which seems possible to me that some of the seals listed in Revelation 6 could occur prior to the actual peace agreement. If this is true, then it tends to change the timetable a bit. It seems likely that Antichrist will appear on the scene (though not be recognized as the Antichrist at first), begin his political assent and start the process of “conquering” politically, which will then lead up to the fake peace deal between Israel and Arab leaders.

The second seal is the rider on the red horse (Revelation 6:4), which signifies war. This rider is allowed to remove peace from the world. This results in multitudes of deaths.

And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.

The third seal is also interesting because it speaks of famine and specifically mentions wheat, barley, oil and wine. The oil here, since it is mentioned within the context of a list of food products, is likely oil used to cook but could also refer to fuel. Constable notes that “wheat” may represent “good food,” while “barley” is generally indicative of less expensive cattle food. Prices of both will be extremely high during this time of the third seal. I’ve already seen people on social media saying that because of a fixed income, they are now having to make a choice between heating/AC or food as they cannot afford both anymore. The skyrocketing cost of fertilizer and livestock feed will also continue to increase food costs. By the way, vines and olive trees are not necessarily affected. One reason is that their roots go much deeper than wheat and barley, but those commodities will also increase in price too.

The fourth seal (Revelation 6:8), is no less dramatic.

And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth.

Death rides a pale horse. A fourth of the entire world’s population will die by sword, famine, pestilence, and/or by wild beasts. It appears that even the animals will go crazy from hunger and will begin attacking human beings to sustain themselves. War always results in famine and disease. Please note that this seal results in the death of 1/4 of the world’s population, or around 2 billion people. Nuclear war could play a role in this and there’s plenty of talk of it now.

Right now, the world is playing seriously with the idea of WWIII. This all began between Ukraine and Russia because Ukraine was being encouraged to join NATO, something that breaks their Minsk Agreement with Russia. Think what you want of Putin, but he is concerned about Russians living in the Donbas area of Ukraine, while the government of Ukraine treats those Russian people like garbage. The world wants to hold up Zelenskyy as a hero, while demonizing Putin. My only point is that as far as Putin is concerned, he believes he has a right to fight for the Russian people of Ukraine since Ukraine’s borders were created by Russia during the dissolving of the USSR years ago. The fact that Soros, Schwab and other globalists are all-in for Ukraine tells me that things are not what the media wants us to believe.

This world is on the brink of global conflict. Biden continues calling for the overthrow of Putin. If world war actually does break out, we can conclude that there will be tremendous famine, disease and pestilence along with huge shortages of everything people have gotten used to having in life. I have no clue how this will end. I’m simply providing what I believe to be possible insight into the increasing global problems we will all likely face.

Klaus Schwab recently noted “…global energy systems, food systems, and supply chains will be deeply affected” (at the recent World Government Summit), so he clearly knows something is up and has a huge hand in creating it in my opinion. Even if all-out war does not occur, we can be assured that unless God intervenes and changes things, the near future does not look good. If you’ve not made any arrangements by stocking up on food and other supplies, you will be caught fully unaware. Expect there to be shortages. Expect the price of goods and commodities to continue to rise. Cut back on other things to make room for this.

Do not bury your head in the sand. Make informed decisions. Trust in the Lord.

    Hello
    A fellow Christian here.(50years)
    While I’m with you with many things, especially about the spirit of wickedness surrounding the Liberals to the point that it seems they are fully the demons Puppets at this point, but have to say, as a medical professional, this Anti-Vax sentiment is just about as demonic as the lies the democrats are spreading.

    We need to be careful in how we discern. Now, as a student of prophecy, I see a whole lot of Christians deceived into believing they are actually prophets. Prophecy does not dictate doctrine, the clear Assertions of scripture do. Virtually no old Testament prophecy could be detailed in a way to make charts & graphs and bold assertions about the future. If that were so, Jesus Christ would have been recognized.

    If you think God’s plan – Which was so different than anyone thought in the 1st century than what actually happened, can be put out for all the world to see in some Left Behind movie or any other of the myriads of utterly foolish attempts at interpreting metaphor and symbols in media, it might be a good idea to see if you’re being negatively influenced yourself.

    We’re not prophets. We’re not apostles. We don’t get to go beyond what is written and make bold proclamations as if the Angels have just visited us. So, before you go any further in actually Adding to the almost 1 million Americans dead from this disease, in Testing God, I would suggest praying about it, because it’s just another way the demons are holding Christians captive to do their will. Its not a guess either. This anti VAX campaign is a work of evil, it’s flat earth paranoia, and some People indwelled by the Lord have deceived themselves into believing they’re crusaders for righteousness when they are just being destructive, paranoid, and false accusers.

      Hi James, I certainly appreciate your opinion and your willingness to share it.

      First, I’m not anti-vax at all. I’m concerned about mRNA issues. There’s a great amount of info coming out from Pfizer’s own documentation that govt agencies wanted to suppress for 75 years. It’s very concerning to many. So many sudden deaths of top notch athletes that we can’t talk about and apparently has nothing to do with adverse reactions.

      RFK Jr has constantly been maligned as anti-vax, which he is not. He is simply fighting for SAFE vaccines.

      Why are medical professionals like Malone, Breggin, and the many medical professionals connected with AFL doctors constantly pushed to the side and censored? Are they medical morons?

      Dr Fauci seems to be the only medical voice allowed (and those who think as he does). Why is that?

      It appears to many other medical professionals that Fauci is doing the same thing today with CV that he did with AIDS in the 80’s.

      Next up, I’m not a prophet and not only have never said I am but also cautioned against anyone thinking I am one. I’ve also noted on numerous occasions that I could be wrong about any number of things.

      By the same token you could also be wrong.

      Your reasoning is troubling when you intimate that we cannot arrive to solid prophetical conclusions of God’s Word. You said if they could they would’ve recognized Jesus. Sorry but what does Paul say about their innate blindness? In fact there are numerous times in Scripture where God CLEARLY hardens ppl hearts so they cannot see truth because they aren’t interested.

      If you believe prophetic discourse is not something that can be clearly understood and delineated, that’s your decision to make. For the record I do not blindly follow everything in the Left Behind viewpoint.

      But you’ve made a huge jump by potentially categorizing everyone who disagrees with you as “destructive, paranoid, and false accusers.”

      There’s little to no grace extended in your comments and frankly, is beneath you as a Christian to take approach, in my opinion.

      Let’s simply agree to disagree and move on, James.

      “This anti VAX campaign is a work of evil, it’s flat earth paranoia, and some People indwelled by the Lord have deceived themselves into believing they’re crusaders for righteousness when they are just being destructive, paranoid, and false accusers.”

      Thanks for your comment which I agree about except this statement above. Please understand that the one area the devil has been able to fool us over the decades has been with vaccines…All of which are from the Pit of Hell, bar none!

      Please take time to check out this Christian website and read some of the articles and posts and understand the ploy of the devil where this evil vaccine push started from and the harm and destruction they have and are still causing. Big Pharma is not our friend and they only care about PROFITS – I worked in the industry so I know. God bless you and I hope you take this as a sincere, loving Christian warning about all this.

    So many players on this worldwide chess board! Shame they haven’t factored our Almighty Father into all their devious schemes. So much news my head spins! But God’s always been in total control and like Pharaoh many hearts are being hardened right now to do his ULTIMATE WILL. We will see much more madness before Jesus returns…but He will return to take over!

    Bless you for another great article. Have a blessed weekend…both of you.
