The Opening of the Third Seal

" And I saw in the right hand of Him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth." Revelation 5:1, 5 & 6

Praise the Lord! The Lamb of God, Christ Jesus, is worthy to open the seven seals. In this body letter, we are going to look at the opening of the third seal, and as we do, we can very easily see it is being opened today.

"And when He (The Lamb of God) had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and He that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand." Revelation 6:5

Notice that He that sits on the black horse has a pair of balances in His hand.

"And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and [see] thou hurt not the oil and the wine." Revelation 6:6

" . . . a measure of wheat for a penny. . ." In New Testament times, a penny was the ordinary pay for a day's wages. This means man will have to work all day, just to be able to have food to eat for that day. Are we beginning to see this in our day? Food prices are rising every time we go to the grocery store, and they are only going to get higher. What can one do? What is the answer for God's people during this coming day of escalating food prices?

Beloved, we need to go back to the day of our grandparents, and begin to store food by canning and drying. It is sad to observe that this generation almost totally depends on the food on the shelves in grocery stores. But the day is coming when there will be no food on the shelves. Japan is experiencing this very crisis. Could this happen to this nation also? Listen as Jeremiah, exhorts us:

"Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein." Jeremiah 6:16

Beloved, we need to return to the good way. Begin to ask for the old paths. Quit selling your canning jars, and start putting food back in them. But they said, "We will not walk therein!" How sad, most people in today's generation want to walk in ease. But the days are going to get harder, and we need to go back to the old paths. Now is the time to prepare spiritually, mentally, and physically - - - " . . . and ye shall find rest for your souls."

Can you not see the sign of the times? " . . . and hurt not the wine and the oil. . ." Revelation 6:6b To hurt the wine and the oil is to act unjustly, to act criminally with the oil and the wine. We see those in charge of the oil, the fruits, and the vegetables acting unjustly, and many times down right criminal. They are truly hurting the oil and the wine.

Spiritually, we see the anointing (the oil) and God's Word (the wine) being hurt also. Many today are acting unjustly and criminally with God's Word and the precious anointing of the Holy Spirit. Yes, the third seal is being opened today. Will you hear His voice? Harden not your heart.
