Revelation 6:5





5 And [kai] when [hote] he had opened [anoigo] the third [tritos] seal, [sphragis] I heard [akouo] the third [tritos] beast [zoon] say, [lego] Come [erchomai] and [kai] see. [blepo] And [kai] I beheld, [eido] and [kai] lo [idou] a black [melas] horse; [hippos] and [kai] he that sat [kathemai] on [epi] him [autos] had [echo] a pair of balances [zugos] in [en] his [autos] hand. [cheir]  KJV-Interlinear



5 And when He broke the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, "Come." And I looked, and behold, a black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.    NASB



With the first seal, appears the white horse, the hero.


With the second seal, appears the red horse, unleashed violence.


And now we have the third seal being opened, and the black horse appears, with the rider (still the anti-christ) carrying a set of scales for weights and measures.


The economics of the world is the target now.  The black horse is used to refer to famine or terrible economic times, Lam. 5:10.


In each instance, Gods divine plan and design has been distorted.First, the lion, where authority is abused.


Second, the ox, where service is abused and used to turn society into oppressed peoples.


And now, third, the image of the man, which is used to represent the third living beast, one who expresses rational thought, and rational thought has been so distorted with abuses that the economies of the world are destroyed.


It is the anti-christ who appears on each of these horses.It is the anti-christ who is responsible for all of the deceit and abuses, and tyranny which is to follow.


He carries the scales, and it is he (the anti-christ) who is responsible for upsetting the balance of economic activity in the world.


When government runs or regulates anything, it ends in disaster. That is a principle that has been true throughout history, it is true today and will be far more than true, in the future when the Tribulation occurs and throughout the entire seven year period of the Tribulation.


One of the fundamental principles of truth is self-determination.  This is supported in the free enterprise economic system. And this is why the free enterprise system is under constant attack.  All principles of truth are assaulted by evil, in order to promote evils own false and failing systems, designed to destroy humanity.


The anti-christ holds the economics of the world in his hands.His hands represent the governing system that will be in place at that time.


And a quick note here at this point of our study.


Recall that the scroll had writing on both sides of the paper.The writing indicated a very detailed account of historical events.


Thus far, we have been getting only the titles, as it were, behind each of the seals as they are removed.  And though the concepts contained within the scroll as they have been revealed, typically follow a logical and chronological sequence, these events and circumstances will exist throughout the Tribulation.


The anti-christ will not invent his position (the concept of the ruler is already there), nor the source of his power (police and militaries are already there), nor the mechanics of the economics at hand (government regulations and laws are already there). These things (bureaucracies, regulations, laws, etc.) will not come instantly into existence after the Rapture. These things will already have their attributes in place, however the anti-christ will take these things to the extreme, and intensify and abuse them, during the Tribulation.
