“The Amazing Heavenly Anti-Peace Sign Formed in the Zodiac by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”

Part One - “The Rider on the White Horse:
Symbol of the Gospel of the Kingdom Being Preached”

Many Bible Prophecy teachers have written about the possible meanings of the cryptic symbolism found in the Book of Revelation. Among these commentaries, much has been written about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse found in Revelation’s sixth chapter. However, none of the more popular commentaries on the Book of Revelation have noted that there is a definite Zodiac connection for many of the symbols in the prophetic language of this book.

As shown in my Language of God Book Series (see http://pillar-of-enoch.com/language_series/), these scriptural tie-ins to the Zodiac Star Gospel story are found throughout the many biblical prophetic scriptures, but they are especially numerous in the Book of Revelation. This suggests that we can apply Sacred Astronomy to determine the dating of key biblical prophecies, just as Enoch and his righteous Sethite descendents did prior to the Great Flood, as shown in the Pillar of Enoch, or Great Pyramid.

One aspect of this Zodiac symbolism that I mentioned in my books is found in the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse who appear consecutively when the first four of seven seals representing various stages of judgment are opened. The only one of the four horsemen I really commented on in my books was the first horseman riding on a white horse, which many Bible Scholars have incorrectly identified as the Antichrist. They have done so because of the apparent similarity to the King of kings on the white horse described toward the end of the Book of Revelation:

“Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war…” “Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations… He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.” -- Rev 19:11, 15-16 (NKJ)

To many Bible Prophecy teachers, it is obvious that the Rider on the White Horse in Revelation Chapter 19 is none other than Yahshua (Jesus) the Messiah returning in Glory to set up His Kingdom on Earth. They therefore think that the less sensationally described rider on the white horse in Revelation, Chapter Six must be an imposter, especially since he appears at the beginning of the Great Tribulation period, when the First Seal is opened:

“Now I saw when 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.” -- Rev. 6:1-2 (NKJ)

Note that the First Horseman of the Apocalypse, or rider on the white horse is given a crown, and has a bow in his hand, identifying him is an archer. However, his bow has no “arrow,” which is a symbol of war and power. The lack of an arrow therefore suggests that the rider is being sent out during the first half of the seven-year Tribulation. For the first three and a half years, before the Bowls of God’s Wrath are poured out on the Earth, there will be a period of peace all over the world, though this time of peace will be heavily marred by ecological and geological disasters, which will be none other than acts of God’s vengeance on an imperiled Earth.

Uncannily, the white horse, and the crowned archer with the bow can all be found in the starry constellation called Sagittarius, the Centaur-like Archer among the twelve major signs of the Zodiac. As depicted in the Dendera Zodiac, Sagittarius depicts a mounted pharaoh, or king, whose pure white horse’s feet are trampling over a serpent shaped like a boat (indicating the serpent trail of Dan, and the Nephilim), while the arrow in the king’s bow is aimed at the heart of Scorpio, the most Satanic symbol among the twelve signs of the Zodiac! This Archer King represents Yahshua, while the white horse represents His perfection, and His role as an atonement sacrifice for sin.

As shown in my book “The Language of God in the Universe” (see http://pillar-of-enoch.com/Language_of_God_in_Universe/), Sagittarius can be seen as a melding together of that first apocalyptic rider, and the white horse he is riding. In the Gospel in the Stars, this sign perfectly represents the dual-nature of Christ as both a conquering hero (the archer), and an atonement sacrifice (the hoofed, white animal) in one!

There are, in fact, two centaurs in the Zodiac. Sagittarius depicts Christ coming in triumph, while the decan of Virgo called Centaurus portrays Christ as an atonement sacrifice. These two centaurs are Scorpio’s righteous adversaries, and their bows depict God’s meting out of judgment against Satan, and his evil followers. However, these archer’s bows also signify God’s promises, blessings, and mercy, just as the rainbow sign given to Noah, and his kin depicted God’s promise to never destroy the Earth by water again. Interestingly, every rainbow symbolically aims an invisible arrow at God, showing that God would rather kill Himself than renege on any of His promises, just as He did on the Cross!

Now, as shown in my book “The Language of God in Prophecy” (see http://pillar-of-enoch.com/Language_of_God_in_Prophecy/) the prophet Zechariah depicts Yahweh holding a bow associated with the tribe of Judah, and an arrow tied to the Tribe of Joseph/Ephraim that are being used to defeat God’s enemies during the Battle of Armageddon:

“For I have bent Judah, My bow, Fitted the bow with Ephraim, and raised up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece, and made you like the sword of a mighty man. Then the LORD will be seen over them, and His arrow will go forth like lightning. The Lord GOD will blow the trumpet, and go with whirlwinds from the south. The LORD of hosts will defend them… in that day, as the flock of His people. For they shall be like the jewels of a crown, lifted like a banner over His land…” - Zechariah 9:13-16 (NKJ)

Note here that the bow and arrow in Zechariah’s vision are being wielded by God, and those He is defending “shall be like the jewels of a crown.” This Scripture therefore identifies the bow, and the jewels of the crown belonging to the Rider on the White Horse in the Book of Revelation! As shown in my books, Judah prophetically refers to the Jews, especially those in the nation of Israel, while Ephraim signifies the Christians living all over the world, especially those in the United States. Therefore, the Rider on the White Horse appears to be a symbol representing a messenger ensuring that the Gospel of Christ’s Kingdom will be preached to the whole world before the Battle of Armageddon. This heavenly Kingdom will ultimately conquer the Devil’s kingdom in the air, and advance the knowledge of the Kingdom of God within those who become the Tribulation Saints.

Indeed, from the very beginning of the seven-year Great Tribulation, God chooses 144,000 Israelites from the Twelve Tribes of Israel to preach. Then the miracle-working Two Witnesses, and finally a mighty angel will preach the Gospel to the whole world before the fall of the Antichrist’s kingdom known as Babylon the Great:

“Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice… ‘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…” -- Rev. 7:2-4 (NKJ)

“And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.” -- Rev. 11:3

“Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth -- to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people -- saying with a loud voice, ‘Hear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.’” -- Rev 14:6-7

In the final preceding quote, note that this angel is preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom to the whole world, not just a few people! This angel, and the 144,002 other witnesses of God who will preach during the Tribulation will thus fulfill Christ’s prophecy that:

“…this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” -- Matt. 24:14

This preaching will be faithfully carried out because Yahweh does not want even one of His human children to perish in the Lake if Fire. Therefore, Yah is, and will continue to be merciful to those who accept His Son Yahshua as Savior - even up to the end of the Battle of Armageddon! Hallelu-Yah for that!

In Part Two of this article series, I will show what Zodiac signs the other three Horsemen of the Apocalypse are connected to, and what this connection means.
