In all 3 passages, Jesus identifies the first and second riders in their appropriate order and the identity of the first horsemen is clear: a group of “many” false Christ figures who will deceive many people in the world (the fact that there are many of these figures is yet another reason why interpreting the Rider of the White horse as the Antichrist, an individual man, fails). What is also emphasized is that when this seal’s horseman is released onto the world, it is not the end times. The end times have not started at this point. This also harmonizes with what we see in Revelation 5 and 6, since John sees Jesus take the book right after His resurrection and Ascension. The book is opened right after Jesus took the throne, almost 2000 years ago.
I’ve never been inspected WRT my staff, but if I was – well, the inspector happened to come during the 10 hours a week when the international student happened to be working. Couldn’t get away with that one if the employee’s an illegal, hence why I wouldn’t risk it, but a lot of restaurants/takeaways would: keep all the illegals in the back and if an inspector comes they all do a runner out the fire exit. The takeaway next door to me already has a staff half full of illegals. A rise in the minimum wage would result in them hiring 1 or 2 employees on the books to look legit and the rest illegals.
While mayor, Mike McGinn tried to increase the number of permitted tent cities, but the City Council (with the support of then-candidate Ed Murray) put the kibosh on that idea. The following year, at a task force’s behest, Murray decided that more tent cities were a good idea after all, and used the failed 2013 legislation as the basis for his own similar proposal. According to that task force, “small houses” in authorized homeless encampments could “create alternative housing options for people who are homeless” and “define [a] path from encampment community to transitional/subsidized housing.” With McGinn out of the picture, Murray doing the asking, and Kshama Sawant newly elected to Richard Conlin’s former Council seat, the city legislature’s more conservative members changed their minds, too, and by 2015 city-sponsored tent cities had opened in Ballard and Interbay. Four more would follow, first in Othello and later at Myers Way, Licton Springs, and Georgetown, where Odom would eventually find his tiny home.
