The Black Horse of Apocalypse - Jesus said, "Nation will rise against nation, kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines, pestilences and earthquakes in various places" Matthew 24:7.

Public employees, from firefighters to the mayor, as well as members of City Council, received wage cuts to minimum wage last Friday, as the City of Scranton, Pennsylvania attempts to balance their budget.  You read that correctly – minimum wage!

About 390 public employees received the drastic wage cuts to $7.25 an hour “indefinitely,” as state legislators banned bankruptcy filings at least until November 30th.  Scranton in northeast Pennsylvania is the latest PA city in serious financial trouble, reported the Scranton Times-Tribune.  

Isn’t that interesting, that state legislators have banned bankruptcy filings until AFTER the November 6 presidential election?

Stockton, California filed Chapter 9 bankruptcy on June 28, the largest US city to file so far. 

Some employees said the wage cuts strained the finances of many workers, who already live from paycheck to paycheck.
"We're running into burning buildings, the police are fighting criminals and we're getting paid a rate of $7.25 an hour. It's ridiculous," said John Judge, president of the International Association of Fire Fighters Local Union No. 60, one of three unions who filed a lawsuit against Mayor Doherty and the City of Scranton.  The lawsuit indicates the wage cuts will have a "devastating impact" on employees, impairing their ability to maintain a decent standard of living.

I believe bankers are holding off the economic implosion in the US until after the presidential election November 6th, and the fact that legislators in Pennsylvania have banned bankruptcy filings until after November 30th is a strong indicator this is correct.  Top economic advisors say we are headed toward another Great Depression; no ifs, ands or buts about it.

This is in line with Bible prophecy, “When he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, ‘Come and see,’ and I beheld a black horse and he who sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.  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 you do not hurt the oil and the wine” Revelation 6:6.  John the Revelator saw this vision of a black horse and rider, with balances in his hand.  During that era, a “measure of wheat” or “three measures of barley” would feed a person for one day.  A penny in 70 AD was equal to a day’s wages.  Essentially, what John saw and recorded in the Book of Revelation is that it would cost people a day’s wages to eat for the day.  If that be the case, there would be no money left for housing, utilities, transportation, etc.  This is what is coming, according to Bible prophecy, and the Word of God doesn’t lie.  All of the prophecies fulfilled to date have been exact and concise, no errors.  Top economists say this day is coming as well.  If you don’t believe the Word of Almighty God, you might want to take heed to what the economists are saying, and turn to God for help, if you haven’t already. 

The Word of God says, “It will come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” Acts 2:21.  If you don’t know your Creator, now is the time to know Him, and please visit the How Can I Be Saved page of this website.  God bless you.
