    Sometimes life here on earth can be complicated, demanding and busy.

    With all the rain this past weekend our basement was flooded, and I’m certain others had to deal with the same situation.

  • Black horse represents famine

    Revelation 6:5-6; Third Seal scarcity on earth

    The rider on the black horse is a symbol of economic disruption and the resultant famine. The real problem is not famine but inflation and scarcity.
