Who Is The Black Horseman
The rider of the black horse is an omonus figure, Riding with his scaless, he is a figure of famain and perhaps he has a nother meaning. The search for this riders name led me to many new understandings about the rider of the black horse. His identity may suprise you, lets look at the verse that anounces this dark entity.
When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” And I looked, and behold, a black horse! And its rider had a pair of scales in his hand.Revelation 6:5
Just as in my explanations for the white horseman and the red horseman, the rider of the black horse is also an ancient deity or Elohim. The Black horseman carries a scale in his hand and John hears the four living creatures (Cherubim) say “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine.” The obvious understanding would be famine, which is what I thought for years, and is what most churches teach, however, this is no longer what I think. The two riders before, were plague pestilence and war, While famine would be a logical conclusion I believe this god is a god of commerce and wages and a god John would have known about from his Hebrew bible, A god mentioned several times in the old testament, as well as his cognates, in greek and roman sources.
Let us look at the textual evidence for my reasoning. The word chosen for scales by john is the word zugos, (ζυγός, οῦ, ὁ) and while it implies a balance or pair of scales its actual translation is a yoke, comparable to the heavy yokes resting on the bullocks’ necks. So the idea of a yoke being put on a person or a heavy burden put on a person added with the phrase A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine conveys a financial burden put on people. So if I am correct, we should find a god that fits this identity which we can pinpoint.
There was a son of Marduk whose name was Nabu, (Akkadian: cuneiform: 𒀭𒀝 Nabû, Syriac: ܢܵܒܼܘܼ\ܢܒܼܘܿ\ܢܵܒܼܘܿ Nāvū or Nvō or Nāvō) who was the god of literacy, the rational arts, scribes, and wisdom. He is comparable to Hermes, Mercury, and the Egyptian Thoth. The Akkadian “nabû” means “to announce, prophesize”. Nabu was worshipped in Babylon’s sister city Borsippa, from where his statue was taken to Babylon each New Year so that he could pay his respects to his father1Bertman, Stephen (2005). Handbook to Life in Ancient Mesopotamia (Paperback ed.). Oxford: Oxford University Press. p. 122. As the inventor of writing, he was identified with the planet Mercury and was associated with the god Ninurta (another rider) And the god Sin (another rider), and in the Bible, Nabu is mentioned as Nebo in Isaiah 46:1 and Jeremiah 48:1. Nabu was sometimes identified with the Greek Apollo (the rider of the white horse) as a giver of prophecies.
So how does the god Nabu have anything to do with trade, commerce, or a yoke? Besides being the god or writing, he was also seen as the god who keeps the accounts and ledgers. This was very useful, to know who had paid their taxes, who had been paid for what, and what money was coming into the treasuries of the kings. With the advent of writing, bookkeeping became a byproduct, where debts were recorded as well as wages for the workers. This is a figurative sense that became both a yoke put around mankind’s necks as well as a literal weight and balance scale for commerce. But I think it goes farther than this because civilization since history began, had these weights and measures, as well as a heavy burden around man’s necks.
For the ancient Hebrews, the idea of usury was unthinkable, this act was forbidden in the laws of Moses, and yet while its neighbors did sometimes add interest to debts, it was nothing like we have seen in the last few centuries. This third rider, the rider of the black horse is a spirit of debt. With the advent of a modern banking system invented by the knights’ templars, who some claim to go on to become the Illuminati and even perhaps freemasonry, the art of usury has exploded exponentially, And by the time the Rothschilds set up their banks in the worlds largest cities, the debt had reached many more people throughout the world. This banking system of putting heavy yokes around the populations reached out to enslave whole countries, with central banking systems which now able to capitalize on the backs of whole countries, who handed out debts to entire countries, with its citizens as collateral. This unholy system of indenturing people with debt hit its zenith with the advent of credit cards and income tax and has fueled and funded more wars in the last century with higher death toles than any religious undertaking ever, but yet I ask, isn’t the cult of banking a religion?
World Wide Information Collection, and Tracking
This system is needed to keep track of everyone, Nabu the god of the scribes, writing and the ledgers, the god riding the black horse is the spirit behind tracking, and recording your every movement, everything you write, everything you read, every penny you spend and every promissory note you sign, he owns your house, your car, and your education, and eventually control who can buy or sell.
Now for my final piece of evidence that this rider of the black horse is the deity known as Nabu, There is a system for bankes that is used by them to clear credit card transactions. it is called Network Access and Brand Usage, NABU for short is a fee that is tacked on to sales that a merchant has to pay in order to accept payments from credit cards. Nabu is the spirit or god released after the first two riders, to bring the world under a financial Yoke (zugos = Scales).
If you are in debt then get out, if you are not in debt dont do so, save your earnings, pay cash, do not become a slave to this demonic force, for the borrower is a slave to the lender. The system makes it so easy to become its slave, it packages its poison with the lure of have now, pay later, but you only are paying the interest, and you will never be free from your master Nabu by playing his game of greed. every nation has a spirit over it, going back to babel when Elyon (that is the Most High) divided the nations according to the number of the sons of God, but these riders he sends out against the nations of unbelievers who have turned their backs on his doctrine and who have followed the white horseman and his counterfeit religion, or the red horseman and his cult of war, and for the next rider, if you haven’t escaped the first three, he will seal your fate.
If you are a person of the faith, then you need to know what is in your sacred book the bible, Stop relying on men to tell you what it says, read it, research every word for the correct translations of its texts, you have been lied to by the counterfeit church of the antichrist Apollo, Your bible has been corrupted and manipulated to hide the truth to you, and yet they will say, the truth was there the whole time, you just never searched for it. You have been following his religion all this time, the religion of Babylon, wake up! Time is ticking away and you are in full slumber. The four horsemen have been riding all this time while you sleep in the comfort of ignorance, And they are now upon you.
But then again, this is just my interpritation, are you awake yet?
