USA inflation hit 9.1%, German food prices up 12.1%; Could the third horseman of the Apocalypse have begun his ride?


Last month, the Associated Press reported inflation hit a 40 year high at 8.6% (see AP: US inflation hit a new 40-year high last month of 8.6%; COGwriter: Much more food price inflation is coming), now the rate hit 9.1%:

US Consumer Prices Soared In June, Americans’ Real Wages Fall For 15th Straight Month

July 13, 2022

With The White House having desperately tried to front-run this morning’s inflation print, analysts were expecting a jump higher led by food and energy costs. They were right in direction but it was way worse as the headline CPI soared 9.1% YoY (vs 8.8% exp and 8.6% prior) …

The 1.3% MoM rise is the hottest since 2005 and the 9.1% YoY is the hottest since 1981.

Under the hood, energy costs dominated the rise, but the rent index rose 0.8 percent over the month, the largest monthly increase since April 1986.

The motor vehicle maintenance and repair index increased 2.0 percent in June, its largest increase since September 1974.

The index for dental services increased 1.9 percent in June, the largest monthly change ever recorded for that series, which dates to 1995.

Real wages fell for the 15th month in a row… (Americans’ purchasing power domestically fell by a record 3.6% YoY in June)

So the inflation rate in the USA is the highest in about 41 years.

But it is not just the USA that is affected.

Notice the following tweet:

Now, the above, does not fully take in what is happening in Europe as the value of the euro has dropped significantly (see Euro dollar parity, Europe at risk for social unrest, ‘Doomsday scenario’?) and energy issues could worsen. The drop in the euro is also expected to contribute to more price inflation in all the Eurozone (the nations that use the euro) and not just Germany.

Notice also:

July 13, 2022

The European Central Bank is watching the euro’s drop because of its effect on consumer prices, according to the first policy maker to comment on the currency since it almost breached parity with the dollar.

“It’s good news for activity as it supports exporters, but unfortunately it raises inflation a bit,” Bank of France Governor Francois Villeroy de Galhau told France Info radio on Wednesday. …

The single currency’s drop to a two-decade low extended to within a whisker of parity with the dollar on Tuesday, battered by steep rate increases by the US Federal Reserve and the increasing likelihood of a recession in Europe. …

Questioned on inflation, Villeroy said it will remain high until the start of 2023.

“Then, unless there is a new energy shock, it should start to decline as energy prices are no longer rising so the energy component in inflation becomes zero,” he said.

Let me add that the probability of another “energy shock” this winter for Europe is high. And this is something that Francois Villeroy de Galhau must realize.

So, Europe is likely to have inflation, even according to a man who says inflation could go to zero.

Jesus, in both the 24th chapter of Matthew and the Book of Revelation in chapter 6, lists a sequence of events including war, famine, and pestilences.

Shortages of fertilizer components, partially caused by Russia’s moves into Ukraine, and partially by Western moves against Russia are a factor here, as well as rising energy costs.

And then, there will be the affect of Ukraine producing and exporting less food. Notice also the following:

July 13, 2022

Kyiv, Ukraine (AP) — The Ukrainian foreign minister says grain exports from his country’s ports won’t resume without security guarantees for ship owners, cargo owners and Ukraine as an independent nation. …

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba  … told the AP on Tuesday that Ukraine’s military is “planning and preparing for full liberation” of Russian-occupied cities and towns near the country’s Black Sea coast. …

Asked about the likelihood of negotiations to end the war that started when Russia invaded neighboring Ukraine on Feb. 24, the foreign minister said peace talks were unlikely to happen soon. …

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. has said a Russian naval blockade stranded about 22 million tons of grain inside Ukraine, a country known as the “breadbasket of Europe” for its exports of wheat, corn and sunflower oil.

With shipments stalled because of the war is endangering food supplies in many developing nations and could worsen hunger for up to 181 million people, according to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization.

Notice that the ride of third horseman of the Apocalypse results in scarcity, inflation, and famine. Revelation 6:5-6 indicates that there will be food, but that it will be quite expensive (food-price inflation).

5 When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.” (Revelation 6:5-6)

Some will thus die as they will not be able to afford it, while others will survive but struggle.

Also, notice that wheat, barley, and edible oil is listed as shortages associated with the ride of the third horseman. Ukraine is a significant exporter of all of those–or at least is was.

Related to some of this, the Continuing Church of God put together the following video on our Bible News Prophecy YouTube channel:


Did you know that the sanctioned lands of Russia and Belarus are dominant suppliers of ingredients used in modern fertilizers? Are you aware that the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that 33% of the farmland in Ukraine may not be planted and/or harvested because of Russia’s ‘special military operation’ in Ukraine? Are parts of the world like Sudan, Lebanon, and the USA experiencing food price inflation? What about impact on the Palestinians in Gaza? Could any of this help lead to the rise of the King of the South? What are some factors that look to increase rice prices? Did Jesus warn of wars and troubles? What are three foods that Ukraine exports that are associated with the shortages and food price inflation of the ride of the third horseman of the Apocalypse? What does Jesus say His followers should do? Dr. Thiel addresses these matters in this video.

Here is a link to the video: Russia, Ukraine, Food, & the Ride of the 3rd Horseman of the Apocalypse.

The old Worldwide Church of God published the following pointing to Caucasians being impacted:

The black horseman’s future ride will reduce the proud faces of white America, Europe, and the British Common wealth into the blackened skin of starvation such as now afflicts the vast majority of mankind. (Alexander G. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Ambassador College Press, Pasadena (CA), 1973, p. 31)

Notice some of the penalties for disobedience recorded in the 26th chapter of Leviticus: “If after all this you have not learnt discipline but still defy me, I in turn will defy you and scourge you seven times over for your sins. I will bring war in vengeance upon you … you shall be herded into your cities, I will send pestilence among you, and you shall be given over to the enemy. I will cut short your daily bread until ten women can bake your bread in a single oven; they shall dole it out by weight [see Revelation 6:5-6], and though you eat, you shall not be satisfied. If in spite of this you do not listen to me and still defy me, I will defy you in anger, and I myself will punish you seven times over for your sins. Instead of meat you shall eat your sons and daughters” (Lev. 26:23-28, The New English Bible). Other passages warn of famine-producing upsets in weather (Amos 4:7, Deut. 28:24); ruined harvests (Ezek. 5:16, Deut. 28:17); blighted crops (Amos 4:9); harmful insect pests (Deut. 28:39, 42); and nonproductive soil (Deut. 28:23). (4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse – The Black Horse – Famine. WCG booklet, 1976)

We are starting to see more reports of food shortages and the potential for more food price inflation.

As far as the USA itself goes, notice something from my book Biden-Harris: Prophecies and Destruction:

 Make no mistake about it — massive inflation is coming.

The U.S.A. dollar will ultimately crash and be worthless. That “pride” of American power will be broken (cf. Leviticus 26:19). …

Inflation will eventually hit the U.S.A. extremely hard.

The USA inflation rate is now at a 41 year high.

Though the rate will likely dip for a time, do not be deceived, expect more food inflation. And yes, there will be famines as well.
