Mysterious Black Horse Flying in KSA Caught on Cam: A Bad Omen?

Mysterious Black Horse Flying in KSA Caught on Cam: A Bad Omen?

The web was abuzz over news of an alleged video showing a horse flying in the sky amid a thunderstorm somewhere in Jeddah in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

As if the flying horse was not weird enough, the Library of Most Controversial Files released an article talking the horsemen of the apocalypse. The article points to the horse as the third of the four horses whose coming bring a bad omen to the people.

The Black Horse

The four horses stood for conquest/pestilence (white horse), war (red horse), famine (black horse), and death (pale horse), says the Wikipedia.

When He broke the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, “Come.” I looked, and behold, a black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not damage the oil and the wine.” – Revelation 6:5-6; NASB

With the alleged appearance of the black horse, does this mean there will soon be famine in the land? The passage reportedly indicates famine because the prices of the grain were 10 times the daily wage of 1 denarius that workers received at the time.

Some scholars have a slightly different interpretation, saying there would be famine for the poor who consume grain products yet the rich are not affected, as symbolized by the oil and wine.

Watch the actual video here:

Is Famine Coming Soon?

A lot of scholars believe the first two horses have already shown themselves, what with all the wars and pestilence the world is suffering today.

The black horse is the third. If the alleged flying horse in Jeddah is the third horse of the apocalypse, then does that mean famine is soon coming to us all?

The Fourth Horse

In the book of Revelations, the fourth horse was just at the heels of the black one. It signified death because it was being followed by Hades.

Are we in big trouble now? It could be close to the end of days!

What is True?

Well, in reality, we are not even sure whether the black horse in the video was authentic. With today’s many technological advances, it would easy to create a video of a thunderstorm and a flying horse. Also, the horse may not even be a real one – many are saying it could be a kite or balloon, especially because there was no additional footage showing the actual horse on the ground where it appeared to fall.

If that was a real horse, perhaps it was lifted to the sky by a tornado.

The list of possibilities is actually endless but, of course, we could not discount the passage from Revelation.

And if that horse was truly the third horse, the one that would bring famine, then we should brace ourselves for the worse.

In the Philippines, people in the barrios have been lining up for NFA rice for over a year because of alleged rice shortage. If the famine comes, how are these people going to fare? How are we all going to eat?

Tsk. Tsk. Tsk. This end-of-days stuff is getting creepier by the moment…
