Economic Collapse?

Q. have heard there is a prophecy about a great economic collapse.   I searched your site but could not find any.  Would you please let me know about it?  Will it happen before or after rapture? Or is it what is going on now?

A. Rev. 6:5-6 says,

When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a day’s wages, and three quarts of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!”

Many scholars see this as a description of economic hard times where inflation has gotten so out of hand that it takes all of a days pay just to buy enough food for the day.  Since the Rapture will take place before the seal judgments, we won’t be here when it gets that bad, but I think we may be entering a period of time that will eventually culminate in the fulfillment of this prophecy.
