The family behind foreclosures
Abstract: My boyfriend has been trying to buy a house for almost a year now. Because I have been heavily involved in the process and will be living in the property, I will refer to it as "our house" and not "his house." We are primarily interested in the Oakland area, but our budget is low.... Post Comment
And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see.And I beheld, and to a black horse; and he that sat on him had 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 6:5-6 KJV.).
This black horse?s rider with the pair of balances in his hand symbolizes the rich capitalists who have a major impact on world conditions through their manipulation of national economies. Only one other verse in the Bible pictures a man with balances or scales: The merchant uses dishonest scales; he loves to defraud? (Hosea 12:7 NIV).
Another prophet, Amos, also said the merchants the wealthy capitalists of his day who were robbing the poor instead of helping them set forth wheat, making the ephah [unit of measure] small, and the shekel [price] great and falsifying the balances by deceit.
