The Book of Revelation 6:7-8

The Pale Horse Rider

7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.

8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.”

(Rev 6:7-8 KJV)

The pale horse rider is the only rider that is given a name – Death. Death is followed by Hell. Death and Hell are symbolic of the personifications of the destruction of the fourth seal. The fourth seal brings about the death of one fourth of Earth’s population through war, famine, disease, and animal attacks. Animals will go on a wild rampage probably for lack of food.

  1. A new price system is emerging; it will neither be a fixed price system where prices are set by the government, nor will it be free price system; the new normal price system is the beastly price system, where prices operates on diktat money, and where prices are governed by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, in particular, The First, and The Fourth Horsemen; these are The Rider on the White Horse, seen in Revelation 6:1-2, who introduces regional governance via coup d’etats replacing democracies, and The Rider on the Pale Horse, seen in Revelation 6:7-8, who introduces economic deflation replacing economic inflation, the result of which is economic death replacing economic life.

    Wikipedia relates “The fourth and final horseman is named Death. Known as “the Pale Rider”, of all the riders, he is the only one to whom the text itself explicitly gives a name. Unlike the other three, he is not described carrying a weapon or other object, instead he is followed by Hades (the resting place of the dead). However, illustrations commonly depict him carrying a scythe (like the Grim Reaper), sword or other implement.

    The Rider on the Pale Horse introduced the beastly price system on Friday May 30, 2014, by forcing investors to sell commodity ETFs, DBC, and GSG, lower on May’s trade lower in the Major World Currencies, DBV, and Emerging Market Currencies, CEW.

    Said another way, debt deflation, specifically currency deflation, coming at the hands of the currency traders, on fears that the world’s central banks’ monetary policies have crossed the rubicon of sound monetary policy and have made “money good” investments bad, has pivoted Commodities, DBC, GSG, lower in price, with the result that investors sold investments in Steel Producers, SLX, such as OSN, GSI, X, AKS, NUE, GGB, SID, MTL, PKX, Global Industrial Miners, PICK, such as VALE, RIO, BHP, Coal Miners, KOL, Uranium Miners, URA, and Rare Earth Miners, REMX.

    Ongoing currency carry trade disinvestment is going to be highly destructive economically. The result of debasement of the world’s currencies will be economic destabilization, economic deflation, and economic death.

    Given currency deflation in the Euro, FXE, the British Pound Sterling, FXB, the Swedish Krona, FXS, and the Swiss Franc, FXF, as well as the India Rupe, ICN, and the Brazil Real, BZF, economic growth is impossible.

    Economic growth was a largely a side benefit, that came from investment gains, flowing from the credit stimulus of Global ZIRP. Economic growth was a function of the investor pursuing investment gain in the bygone era of currencies, and the age of credit.

    News reports illustrate economic death. BBC reports ‘Conflict Minerals’ Deadline Looms for US Technology Firms.
