God is doing an amazing, promised work with this world’s food supplies. Don’t take our word for it, just look at this: https://www.foodsafety.gov/recalls/recent/ in the past week they sent out 15 separate notices, and in the past month more than 33 notices reasons: allergies, contaminates, foreign objects, beneath standards, Listeria, E. Coli, Salmonella and so forth.
This scene sounds a lot like these verses in Revelation 6:5-6 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo 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.
And promises of Deuteronomy 28:17!
