[Revelation Ch.6: The Seal Judgments]

III. The Third Seal

REV 6:5  And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.

     The black-horsed rider carries a pair of scales. This signifies scarcity of food, as each morsel of food must be weighed. A picture of famine. Famines often follows war. Economic disruptions often grip the world after a world war.

REV 6:6  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

     The voice from heaven describes extreme famine condition on earth. In Bible times, "a penny"--the Roman denarius--was a day's wages (Matt. 20:2,9). "Three measures" are about a pint, a minimum daily sustenance diet. Thus, it would be everyone for himself. "Barley" represents a coarser kind of food, such as animal feed. 

REV 6:6  ...and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine

     Apparently, the rich are not affected as much by tribulation's economy. The black rider is instructed not to hurt the oil and wine--traditional food of the rich.
