Revelation 6:5-6 “When He broke the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, ‘Come,’ I looked, and behold a black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, ‘A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not damage the oil and wine.'”
What makes everything we are seeing today so crucial in the world’s steps toward the apocalypse is the first “birth pain”, Israel, is back in the land again. Therefore everything else we see takes on prophetic importance. One of those prophetic signs is a worldwide drought affecting agriculture in dramatic ways.
In the bread basket areas of Konya, Turkey, drought stricken farmers are now seeing hundreds of sinkholes from the overuse of ground water to make up for the lack of rainfall. This will affect not only Turkey, but Turkey’s exports (like potatoes to the United States) to feed a growing world population.
But Turkey isn’t the only place there are drought conditions. The U.S., Australia, China, India, and Africa are also experiencing drought conditions to some extent, especially in their primary crop growing areas, preparing the way for the third horseman of the Apocalypse.
Wake up! Look to the heavens. Your redemption draweth near!
