Revelation 6:5 -6
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. 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.”
It almost appears that we can hear the galloping of the black horse of the book of revelation as we are now hearing of new reports that over 16 million people are now at risk of dying of famine in three African Nations. “We are living a horrible drought and a difficult time,” said Shukurow, a mother of a malnourished child. “We hardly have enough to get by, let alone to think of our future.”

It’s 97 degrees, and in a packed UN camp just outside Baidoa, Somalia, Shukurow and hundreds of people are bracing for what one United Nations official has described as “extremely bad” conditions. “If we don’t do much enough to mitigate the situation, we will go to the catastrophe phase,” warns Judy Juru Michael, a nutrition officer with UNICEF. “We don’t want to reach that phase.” The UN has just declared parts of Somalia, Nigeria and South Sudan on the brink of famine.
