The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse Have Been Released, Initializing the First Four Seals!

Pillar of Enoch Ministry (POEM)

*********************************************
NOTE: This Article is related to a complimentary article that I published at the same time as this one entitled: “A Study of the Four Holy Watchers Appointed Over the Four Corners and Winds of the Earth.” It would be helpful in understanding my conclusions in this article if you read the Four Watchers article first. To read this article, click on the following link: http://pillarofenoch.blogspot.com/2011/09/study-of-four-holy-watchers-appointed.html

For those who have read my books “The Language of God in History” and “The Language of God in Prophecy,” (to find out more about these books and to purchase them to support POEM, visit http://pillar-of-enoch.com), the following outline will be much easier to follow and will make much more sense. For those who are not familiar with my books, I highly recommend that you read the last half of Chapter 6 in “The Language of God in History” and the first part of Chapter 11 in “The Language of God in Prophecy” (which includes about 100 pages of original material) to understand all that I am referring to in this article, as the material is not readily available from anywhere else.

This article will attempt to show that the first Four Seal Judgments spoken of in the Book of Revelation may have already been opened and that we may be living in the time of the Tribulation spoken of in the Book of Revelation. However, this article also maintains that the 3-1/2-year Great Tribulation has not yet begun and will not until after the opening of the Sixth Seal, when the First Rapture may be set to occur.

Before rejecting my hypothesis, please keep in mind that the Seal Judgments do NOT appear to be part of God's Wrath, but are related to God's withdrawal of His Protection from various once Christian Nations as they become more apostate and wicked. As the nations become more rebellious, the curses for not keeping God's Moral Law begin to be inflicted. These curses can come upon a nation or people group at any time in history, and they can also be reversed if peoples and nations repent and turn back to follow the Lord. This is why the Seal Judgments are NOT God's Wrath, for which there will be NO turning back or reversal possible.

The Book of Revelation, Chapter 6 clearly states that the Wrath of God will not begin to be poured out until the Sixth Seal is opened. Furthermore, the Sixth and Seventh Seal Judgments and the Trumpet Judgments indicate that God's Wrath will originate from the heavens with Celestial bombardments of the Earth and from massive Earth changes that no earthly man, nation or weapon could possibly mimic or stop, while the Seal judgments mostly are the result of mankind's inhumanity to man, and widespread wickedness and greed.

I will explain my thoughts on this more after explaining what my research has revealed about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and the fact that they may have already been released. This became evident to me when I realized that two prominent American political figures are tied to the Riders on the White and Pale Horses of Revelation. This suggests that a powerful political figure may be linked to all four of the horsemen, and though I am not positively sure who the other two horsemen are, I will present the most likely candidates. Before doing so, however, let me give some tidbits about the symbolic spiritual meaning of the Four Horsemen

Ask any Native American Medicine Man, and he will likely tell you that the colors that God chose for the four horses associated with the first Four Seal Judgments have to do with the directions of a compass pointing to the Four Corners of the Earth. White is North and the White Races (Japeth), Red is West and the Red Races (Noah), Pale or Yellow (not Green) is East and the Yellow Races (Shem), and Black is South and the Black Races (Ham). In other words, the four horsemen indicate that the plagues associated with them will be happening worldwide. It is also interesting to note that real horses come in shades of red, black, white and yellow (or beige), but not in green!

From my own studies, I have also discerned that the White Horse is tied to Sagittarius the Archer denoting the West coasts of the Americas, where the White Races eventually settled. The Black Horse is tied to Libra the Scales and to Australia, New Zealand, Southwest Asia, and Africa - where the Black or dark skinned races are predominant. The Red Horse is tied to the sign of Taurus the Bull and to the Yellow and Red Races, including the Semitic people of the Middle East, Native Americans and Asian people.

The Pale Horse is the most interesting of all because it is tied to Scorpio the Scorpion and to the people of the Pacific Islands and the sea life of the Pacific Ocean, although Ophiuchus above Scorpio is tied to America - and Hawaii in particular.

Now let's examine the First Seal and its rider…

The Rider on the White Horse:
“The Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, ‘Come and see.’ And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.” - Revelation 6:1-2
The Rider on the White Horse and the White Horse are united as one in the Centaur called Sagittarius the Archer. This half man and half beast signifies Yahshua sacrificing Himself on the Cross for our sins rather than a bull or ram on an altar.

The region of the world that is tied to Sagittarius is Alaska, and it has become clear to me that Sarah Palin, who was the Governor of Alaska in 2008, signifies the Rider on the White Horse. Not surprisingly, due to Sarah Palin’s amazing historic role, there was an avalanche of hatred released against her immediately after she appeared on the world scene. As Sarah valiantly stood upon Christ her Solid Rock during the 2008 Presidential Campaign as John McCain’s running mate, the world’s hatred of her increased until it reached epic proportions. As a result, Sarah Palin eventually left politics altogether and pursued a different calling as a political activist and spokesperson for Christian family values and biblical morality.

Remarkably, despite the fact that many people still revile and belittle her, Sarah Palin has become a powerful spokesperson representing Christian wisdom, love and morality in America and around the world. She is not perfect, just as none of us are perfect, but even though she may be misguided or wrong at times, her love for her Savior and her fellow Americans is evident in her life and work. It is also through people like her that the Good News of the Kingdom of God is being spread, and is taking root around the world. In this regard, Sarah Palin is truly an Esther figure for our time.

(10-4-2012 Update Note: Despite the bad press that she has received from some Messianics, Christians and Non-Christians alike, I still hold firm to my conviction that Sarah Palin is NOT an evil Illuminati plant working for Lucifer, but a bona fide Evangelical Christian and servant of God who has been grossly misrepresented, and who truly loves Yahweh God and His Son. Though her “Dominion” or “Kingdom Now” theological views of Eschatology may be misguided, I believe God is using Sarah as an instrument of His Will.)

The Rider on the Red Horse:
“When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, ‘Come and see.’ Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.” - Revelation 6:3-4
The Red Horse is Taurus the Bull and the Rider on the Red Horse is Orion the Hunter, and both of these figures can signify Yahshua as the Kinsmen Redeemer and Avenger of Blood for His people Israel.

As shown in my book “The Language of God in History”, the Middle East is the region of the world that is governed by Taurus and Gemini. Taurus signifies the Bull given as a sin offering for Israel, while its Messianic decan Orion the Hunter signifies the Messiah Yahshua coming to conquer sin, death and the Devil both on the Cross and at the Battle of Armageddon. Meanwhile, Gemini the Twins shows the struggle between the opposing twin brothers Jacob and Esau and the only solution to it in the holy covenant of marriage to Yahshua, the Messiah of Israel.

Interestingly, the Rider on the Red Horse is also connected to the Messianic figure of Perseus, who rode Pegasus the flying White Horse to rescue Andromeda, the Chained Woman that represents both the Jews who have not yet accepted Yahshua as their Messiah as well as the apostate portion of the Church that is left behind after the First Rapture.

Though Perseus is a decan of Aries, he is standing directly above Taurus in the heavens and is depicted there holding the snake-covered head of Medusa. In truth though, Perseus depicts David, the future king of Israel, holding the severed head of the Anakim Giant named Goliath.

This severed head signifies the deceit and rebellion of Satan, who turns people’s hearts to stone against one another. This stone-cold hatred in people’s hearts causes them to desire to kill one another, just as Satan and his followers desire to kill and destroy. Unfortunately, the stone-cold hatred between some Jews and Muslims and some Christians and Jews is legend, and it will inevitably lead to the coming Battle of Armageddon.

The sign of Taurus shows that a large portion of Gentile believers will be on the wrong side of the spiritual conflict. This can be seen in the Pleiades star cluster that is located on the neck of Taurus, as if it were riding on its back. The Pleiades is a representation of the Seven Churches spoken of in the Book of Revelation minus the born-again Church of Philadelphia, which will be taken in the First Rapture. After the Rapture, the people in the apostate church of the ecumenical movement that are left behind after the Rapture and do not repent will become the Woman (Church) Who Rides the Beast (Taurus).

Incidentally, Taurus also represents the material wealth that Joseph's descendents would accrue and bless the world with. Hence, Taurus signifies economic wealth and material prosperity. It is also interesting to note that the tribute paid in gold to King Solomon was 666 gold talents yearly (See 1 Kings 10:14). This strongly suggests that those who love the world and its material blessings more than God (like the Church of Laodicea) will be far more susceptible to taking the Mark of the Beast than those who love God and their fellow man more than gold or riches.

Fascinatingly, the nation of Kenya in Africa - where Barack Obama’s father was born - lies in the region of the Earth that can be associated with Perseus, Medusa and Andromeda, and Obama has been fomenting suspicion of and hatred toward Conservative White Americans and Fundamentalist Christians ever since he was elected President of the United States in November of 2008.

However, the Rider on the Red Horse is not Obama, who holds the distinction of being connected to the Rider on the Pale Horse. Rather, it is connected to two political figures that both lead a powerful nation in the Middle East, but who are on opposite spiritual sides. This is reflected in the head of Medusa held by Perseus, as well as in the neighboring sign of Gemini when it is viewed as two warring brothers. In addition, this opposition can be seen in the two horns of Taurus that have opposing spiritual meanings, as well as in Taurus’ secondary connection to Jacob’s rebellious son Reuben.

The Rider on the Red Horse that can be connected to the messianic figures of Orion and Perseus is the Prime Minister of Israel named Benjamin Netanyahu. He is a Jew just like Yahshua was, and he is also a religious man who loves his country and his people, just as Yahshua did. It is therefore no accident that a godly man like Netanyahu is leading the nation of Israel today.

Fascinatingly because Netanyahu can be associated with the right or righteous horn of Taurus connected to the followers of Yahshua called Ephraim in love and fellowship, he can also be connected to the horn of a ram spoken of by the antediluvian prophet Enoch the Sethite. This horn will help his nation rise up above their enemies in the last days. Following is an excerpt from the Book of 1 Enoch with my explanatory commentary inserted within it in parentheses:
“And I saw till horns grew upon those lambs (the Jews), and the ravens (the Gentile enemies of Israel) cast down their horns; and I saw till there sprouted a great horn of one of those sheep (Yahshua Ha Mashiach), and their eyes were opened (The Jews finally accept Yahshua as their Messiah during the Tribulation). And it looked at them [and their eyes opened], and it cried to the sheep, and the rams saw it and all ran to it. And notwithstanding all this those eagles and vultures and ravens and kites (Israel’s neighboring Radical Muslim neighbors and her Gentile enemies all over the world) still kept tearing the sheep (the Jews) and swooping down upon them and devouring them: still the 12 sheep (the nation of Israel and all born-again Tribulation Saints living in Israel during the Tribulation) remained silent (the Jews and Christians in Israel did not retaliate against their enemies), but the rams (leaders of Israel) lamented and cried out. And those ravens fought and battled with it (The Two Houses of Israel) and sought to lay low its horn (the Prime Minister of Israel), but they had no power over it. - The Book of 1 Enoch translated by R.H. Charles, Chapter 90, verses 9 thru 12
My commentary explains this passage of 1 Enoch as mostly pertaining to modern Israel’s unparalleled political and spiritual predicament, especially as it will stand in the middle of the Great Tribulation with the whole world arrayed against it. Despite the hatred of her enemies, however, the Book of 1 Enoch declares that the nation of Israel will prevail. In addition, verses 13 through 19 of Chapter 90 in the Book of 1 Enoch detail the Second Coming of Yahshua to save Israel and destroy her enemies.

But, just as there is a righteous little horn or leader that can be associated with the right horn of Taurus, there is an opposing Rider on the Red Horse that can be associated with the left or unrighteous horn of Taurus. This is the President of Iran named Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Due to his lineage and his antagonism toward Israel, President Ahmadinejad can also be associated with the little horn of a goat spoken of by the Prophet Daniel. As my commentary within the Scripture indicates, the little horn pertains to the leader of Iran:
“Therefore the male goat grew very great; but when he became strong, the large horn was broken (Alexander the Great dies), and in place of it four notable ones came up toward the four winds of heaven (Alexander’s empires split into four kingdoms, with one of them being Persia, which became Iran and Iraq). And out of one of them (Persia) came a little horn (the leader of Iran) which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the Glorious Land (Israel).” - Daniel 8:8-9

In 2009, after standing down charges of fraud in the Iranian presidential election, Ahmadinejad was reelected to a second term as Iran’s president. In late September of 2010, Ahmadinejad was invited to speak at the United Nations General Assembly and at Columbia University in New York City. At the time, he made it clear that Iran will never recognize Israel’s right to exist, and that he believes that the United States government was behind the 9/11 attacks. In addition, Ahmadinejad slanderously suggested that Al Qaeda is linked to the American government and military, and more inquiries should be made to find out the truth.

Of course, this has been done by many conspiracy theorists that have painted America guilty as charged, but without any substantial evidence to prove their accusations. To those who believe and promulgate these theories, it is clear that they are actually traitors to the nation also, siding with America's enemies and painting the entire nation as wicked while absolving America's enemies of any crimes.

Unfortunately, many Americans also believe this lie and have painted both former Presidents George H. Bush and his son George W. Bush and certain members of the CIA as hidden enemies of the state. Although there are likely many traitors to America in high offices today, and possibly even in the CIA, and some of America's recent Presidents are likely guilty of being traitors to the nation (including Muslim sympathizer Barack Obama), the following photograph of President George W. Bush that was taken at the moment he was informed of the 9-11 Attacks tells a different tale of a man genuinely horrified by the news:

It is also interesting to note that President George W. Bush spoke at length about the fact that America was engaged in an "IDEOLOGICAL WAR" with Radical Islam, and this is quite clear when viewing the state policies and beliefs of the fascist Radical Muslim leaders of Iran, and those of the United States, which once fostered and protected the Democratic principles of government.

Fascinatingly, shortly after Ahmadinejad spoke at the UN in September of 2010, the Middle East erupted with one people’s rebellion after another in what the world has called "the Arab Spring". This frightening movement is being fomented by radical Muslims that wish to take over in countries that were formerly friendly to the West politically (at least on the surface). This revolt against governments that were neutral in their relationship with Israel and friendly toward the West officially began with a civil uprising in Tunisia in December of 2010. Then, in January of 2011, Egypt erupted with violent protests against the government and toward then President Hosni Mubarack.

The terrible rioting in Egypt (which was interestingly tied to the Rider on the Pale Horse by a spectral image that appeared in an Egyptian riot scene video) was followed by a civil war in Libya, which has resulted in the fall of Muammar Gaddafi’s stabizing national regime, and led to heightened local religious fervor for "jihad" and continued civil unrest. After that, civil uprisings erupted in Bahrain, Syria, and Yemen. More major protests followed in Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, Morocco, and Oman, and minor protests have occurred in Kuwait, Lebanon, Mauritania, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, and the Western Sahara.

Clashes at the borders of Israel in May 2011 and the September 2011 takeover and destruction of the Israeli Embassy in Cairo, Egypt were also likely inspired by the regional Arab Spring. Furthermore, the destruction of the Israeli Embassy in Cairo made the leaders in Israel realize that military action against Egypt might soon be necessary. Whatever the case, what the Arab Spring has clearly shown is that the Psalm 83 War and Psalm 108 War beginning in the Middle East and centered around Israel and the West’s right to exist free from the terror of Radical Islam are soon going to reach their fulfillment. (Note 6-1-2015: This article was written before the civil war in Syria escalated and ISIS raised its ugly head. These events have further exacerbated the IDEOLOGICAL and spiritual conflict between the Middle East and the West, and there is no doubt that it is soon going to ignite the world into a massive all-out war of destruction and death - the likes of which the world has never seen before, or will see again.)

The Rider on the Black Horse:
“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.’” - Revelation 6:5-6
The Rider on the Black Horse is carrying a pair of scales that signify the sign of Libra, the Scales of Justice and Judgment. However, the horse and rider are likely meant to be depicted in the constellation called Centaurus the Centaur, which is connected to the neighboring sign of Virgo the Virgin. This Centaur can be found directly below the scales of Libra in the heavens.

The region of the world that is most closely tied to the longitude for Libra and Centaurus are New Zealand, the eastern seaboard of Australia, and the most northern coastlines of Japan (See the Earth Map in the section of this article on the Rider on the Red Horse above for the countries in and near the Libra Longitude). In light of the Zodiac connection of the Four Horsemen and the ancient Zodiacal associations of the longitudes of the Earth that can be connected to them, it is no wonder that - beginning in September of 2010 - highly destructive fires, storms and flooding in Australia and New Zealand and two spiritually meaningful and destructive earthquakes at Christchurch, New Zealand occurred in this region.

Then, on March 11th, 2011, a massive 9.0 magnitude earthquake hit off the coast of northern Japan, causing a huge tsunami to inundate the island and kill many thousands of people while wiping out whole towns. The combined earthquake and tsunami were so severe that they permanently changed the northern coast of Japan, moved the northern portion of the island of Japan out of its place, and caused the melt-down of several nuclear plants on Japan’s northeastern coast. This is turn has caused nuclear radiation poisoning to occur in the Pacific Ocean waters surrounding Japan, which has in turn contaminated the entire ocean with heightened radiation levels that have resulted in diseased fish - with some that have washed up dead on shore now showing visible tumors on and inside their bodies. As such, it is likely that this radiation is part of the plagues associated with the Riders on the Pale and Black Horses that are tied to the Pacific Ocean nations, including the many island nations of the South Pacific, Australia and New Zealand, the Philippines, and Japan.

Fascinatingly, since the Rider on the Black Horse is tied to both Libra and Virgo, and Virgo is a woman, it is startling that the Prime Minister of Australia (as of 2011) is a woman named Julia Gillard, and that she has served in this role from June of 2010 to the present. It is also interesting to note here that the armed forces of Australia are the only ones to have served alongside the Armed Forces of the United States in every major world conflict since World War II. Australian political leaders have also shown a staunch desire to uphold Australia’s Christian roots in the face of constant pressure from an ever-growing body of Muslim immigrants to adapt to their religious beliefs and way of life. As such, Australia and New Zealand are being called to represent Christian values and the light of Christ shining out toward the Asian countries and the many Muslims living in the countries surrounding these British Commonwealth nations.

Unfortunately, the earthquakes in Christchurch, New Zealand in September 2010 and February 2011 suggest that Yahweh God is not pleased with the lukewarm response from the Evangelical Christians in that region and around the world to stand up for truth, especially in resisting the push to legalize abortion in every circumstance and to promote homosexuality and gay “marriage” as an acceptable way of life. In addition, the terrible earthquake and tsunami in Japan suggests that God despises mankind’s love of materialism and worldly things, which the Japanese are experts at manufacturing.

Ominously, the many disasters in Australia, New Zealand, and Japan severely affected the eastern coasts of all three countries, where flooding was a major cause of destruction and death. This ties these disasters to the far more deadly pole shift and crustal displacement that is connected to the Sixth Seal Judgment.

The Rider on the Pale Horse:
“When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, ‘Come and see.’ So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger… and by the beasts of the earth.” - Revelation 6:7-8
The Rider on the Pale Horse is Ophiuchus the Serpent-Holder, and his Horse is Scorpio the Scorpion. Ophiuchus is a powerful Christ figure that signifies Yahshua dying on the Cross for our sins so that He can bring healing, restoration and life to all those who love Him and His Father Yahweh. In my book "The Language of God in History", I showed how Ophiuchus the Serpent Holder is also tied to the power of the United States and the huge moral and political struggles that have ideologically divided the nation into two warring factions. This is well-depicted by the giant writhing serpent in Ophiuchus' mighty arms!

The region of the world that is tied to Scorpio and Ophiuchus are the Hawaiian Islands and the South Pacific Islands. This is where the only remaining Nephilim hybrids may have survived after the Israelites and other people groups hunted down and destroyed the Anakim that lived elsewhere. In particular, it is possible that the modern day people of Samoa who are known for their great size and strength have some degree of Anakim blood in their veins.

Hawaii is where American President Barack Obama is said to hail from, although he is also connected to the predominantly Muslim nation of Indonesia. Interestingly, Indonesia is located in the region of the world where the followers of the Way of Cain (a.k.a. the Way of the Serpent) that were descended from Adam’s wayward son Cain first settled and spread out before the Flood, with some of them eventually settling in the Hawaiian and Samoan Islands. Due to Barack Obama’s connection to both Indonesia and Hawaii, it is my firm belief that this man is meant to signify the Rider on the Pale Horse.

This assumption is reinforced by the fact that several Bible scholars including myself see an allusion to the Nephilim in the scripture phrase “beasts of the earth” in the last sentence pertaining to the Rider on the Pale Horse. Some scholars have also surmised that many of the world’s ruling elite are distant blood relations to the Nephilim giants that survived the Flood. In addition, it has been proposed that some of these ruling families are interested in using and may already be using advanced technologies in an attempt to destroy up to two-thirds of the world’s population.

The motivation behind the evil actions of certain leaders among the elite may not only be fear that human beings may rise up against them like they did in ancient times, but out of a perverse desire to kill and destroy those whom these descendants of the Anakim privately hate. But make no mistake! These part-hybrid and human leaders would have no power to kill and destroy anyone if it were not granted to them by God the Father, who has allowed this evil to flourish due to the increasing wickedness of mankind throughout the Earth and their hatred and violence toward one another.

Initial Conclusion

Since Sarah Palin appears to be connected to the Rider on the White Horse in the Book of Revelation and she emerged on the world political scene in late August of 2008 (just before the Jewish month of prayer and fasting called Elul began that year), it is highly probable that the start of the initial Tribulation period being spoken about in Matthew, Chapter 25 and the Book of Revelation, Chapter 4 began on Nissan 1 on April 6th, 2008. However, I believe the seven-year final Tribulation before Christ's Millennial Rule began in 2011, and the actual Great Tribulation likely has not begun yet, and will not begin until the Sixth Seal is opened. This is the period when the Earth will experience a severe worldwide earthquake and a massive pole shift and crustal displacement that will likely cause numerous tsunamis to occur:
“I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?’” - Revelation 6:12-17
This passage aptly described what would happen if the Earth’s outer crust began to slide into a new position due to a massive worldwide earthquake, thereby causing even more earthquakes when the Earth's crust slides into a new position. This, in turn, would move the Earth’s poles out of place and change its magnetic poles - even as deadly and highly destructive volcanic eruptions and earthquakes crushed the interiors of all of the continents, and tsunamis inundated coastal areas around the globe. As a result, the human, fish, bird and animal death toll from this single Seal judgment will likely be more massive than the 40 million civilians and soldiers that died in World Wars I and II and the long general tribulation period in between them leading up to the opening of the Sixth Seal.

The loss of life at this time will be beyond imagining, and perhaps billions of people will die. The devastation will be so great that even the elite leaders who have helped to bring about these judgments on the Earth will not be safe in their elaborate underground bunkers. This is why I believe the First Rapture has to occur before this massive pole shift takes place.

The Timing of the First Rapture

A clue to the timing of the First Rapture can be found in the Book of Revelation, Chapter 7:
“After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree. Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.” And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed…” - Revelation 7:1-4
The four angels standing at the four corners of the Earth mentioned in Revelation 7:1 are likely the very same angels who will assist Yahshua in gathering all of the Raptured saints from one corner of the globe to the other in Matthew, Chapter 24:
“And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” - Matthew 24:31
The nature of these four mighty Watcher angels is explained in my related article “A Study of the Four Holy Watchers Appointed Over the Four Corners and Winds of the Earth.” (To read this article, click on the following link: http://pillarofenoch.blogspot.com/2011/09/study-of-four-holy-watchers-appointed.html).

Now, since these four angels are occupied in holding back the winds on the Earth that will help to unleash the judgments associated with the opening of the Seventh Seal and blowing of the First Trumpet at the beginning of Revelation, Chapter 7, it strongly suggests that these angels will have already collected the Bride of Christ and lifted her out of harm’s way before that time. This ties in perfectly with my deductions in my article: “The Rapture Connection to the Sign of the Son of Man”, which explains why the Second Coming of Christ described in Matthew, Chapter 24 pertains to the Rapture rather than Yahshua’s return to fight the Battle of Armageddon. (Click on the following link to read the Sign of the Son of Man article online: http://pillar-of-enoch.com/essays/index.html#Son-of-Man).

In addition to revealing the fact that the four Watcher angels that will gather the elect are now poised to bring judgment on the Earth for Yahweh, Revelation Chapter 7 reveals that the Bride has already been caught up to Heaven by this time in the following passages:
“After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, ‘Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!’ All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God…” - Revelation 7:9-11
So, though the open door that is a clue that the Rapture is about to occur appears in Heaven before the First Seal is opened in Revelation Chapter 4:1, the First Rapture’s fulfillment is not revealed until after the Seventh Seal is opened. Therefore, the First Rapture may be set to occur AFTER the events of the Fifth and Sixth Seal BEGIN to occur but before the judgments connected to the Seventh Seal and First and Second Trumpet Judgments of Revelation. (UPDATE 4-20-2015: The Fifth Seal also shows signs of now being opened as the jihadists in ISIS slaughter Middle Eastern and African Christians by the thousands in Syria, Egypt, Sudan, Libya, Iraq, Iran, Ethiopia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Kenya and elsewhere in Africa and Asia)

As I have shown many times in my Language of God Series Books, Armageddon Shows and previous articles, there have been many Signs in the Heavens including the Comet Elenin and Comet Honda 45P that indicate that the events of the Sixth Seal Judgment are fast approaching and the First Rapture cannot be far off. In addition, this article shows that the Four Horsemen may have indeed begun their rides! Indeed, though the events associated with these ominous riders announcing the impending doom of the wicked have not yet reached full fruition, their judgments will soon be made fully manifest on the Earth.

All that remains to occur before the full affects of the terrible judgments associated with these riders is the First Rapture. After this, God’s Wrath on the wicked will become so pronounced on the Earth that no one will be able to ignore it any longer. As a result, the apostate Church that is left behind will finally awake from their long slumber and be forced to choose whose side they are on.

Whether it be to choose God’s or the Devil’s side, all the people who are left behind will be faced with having to live through the life and death struggle between good and evil that will soon come to a violent and bloody climax at the Battle of Armageddon. In the meantime, as we await the Rapture, let’s pray that many of these lost sheep will choose God’s Way and the path that leads to life through Christ before it is too late!
