[Egypt] [Aquarius] [Pisces] [Aries] [Taurus] [Gemini] [Cancer] [Leo] [Virgo] [Libra] [Scorpio] [Sagittarius] [Capricorn] [Four Riders] [King Solomon] [David & Goliath] [Samson] [Essene]
In the heavens, they appeared
The riders of the storm,
The heralds from the sky,
Death, plague, famine and war
To city, village, town and countryside.
No man safe when they show their face,
no safe place to hide.
The Revelations of John
The four riders of the Apocalypse have fascinated people, probably since the Bible was made accessible to the general population. And while some authors have suggested they are linked to four Cardinal points of the year, yet no one seems to have fully explained them.
The same can be said of Ezekiel vision when sees, what looked like four living creatures in the fire, he tells us each of the creatures appeared to have four faces, and four wings. That their legs were straight but somehow more like the legs of a calf or cow? from the description it appears that each creature had a pair of wings on their sides and that human arms and hands extended outwards from under each pair of wings.
Each had the face of a Man;
on the right side,
each one had the face of a Lion;
on the left side,
the face of an Ox;
each also had the face of an Eagle.
What Ezekiel is describing is easy enough to explain. Each face represents one of the Cardinal points of the zodiacal year. They are:
|Face of a Man|
|Left: Ox||Right: Lion|
And in Revelations 4-7 John describes the same thing. 'the first living creature was like a lion, the second like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth like a flying Eagle.'
While, I've never seen it drawn, I perceive what you would see, is four faces inside separate circles, two wings would stretch out from both the left and right sides of the circle; below each set of wings a human arm would stretch out and touch the hand of the hand stretched out from the creature on it opposite side and from the bottom centre of each circle of heads a spoke of legs would run to the middle, like a four-spoked wheel. The whole thing would raise and lower itself in union as the rose and fell against the horizon of the year. There is no way that Ezekiel is describing aliens or spaceships as some foolish past authors have tried to pretend: it is pure sacred Astrology.
But it not quite so easy it seems, to figure the signs the four riders of the Apocalypse represent, otherwise surely it would have been done. But no one's done it yet.
And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he who sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
Now Sagittarius has bow, and he is almost always depicted as half man, half Horse. And he has a crown. He is hell bent on conquering Spring and Summer, however, he does not own a white horse.
Lancelot, Arthur's first knight however, does. This being true, the first rider must represent the zodiac signs of, (for a fuller description of the virtues and sins of the sign of Aquarius read Rueben of the sons of Jacob.)
And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
Richard the Lionheart had a very large sword. Supposedly, a two-handed sword that was so strong it could cut a round iron bar? But, King Arthur is a better candidate, not only did he draw the sword from the stone, there can be little doubt that he occupied the seat of Leo at the round table. And he an Astrological myth, not a real person.
They render the horse a red, fiery one, the word rendered such signified a bay, which I suppose is as close as you get in real terms.
The rider was given the power to take peace from the earth and make men kill each other. Well, Richard the Lionheart certainly qualifies on that one.
Thus, we have Gemini, Cancer and Leo. (you can get greater insight to all these signs by reading the books on Jacob's sons, Benjamin, Issachar and Judah.
I behold, and lo a black horse; and he who sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice midst of the four beasts say, a measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
A pair of scales can only signify Libra. The Black horse, belongs to Virgo, for she is the queen of harvest, and death which is always dressed or veiled in black. Also, it is the abundance of, or shortfall of the harvest which sets the price of wheat and barley, and the grapes are harvested and the oil pressed in Scorpio. (once again see books on Naphtali, Asher, Dan.)
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell (Hades) followed with him. And power was given unto them over a fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death through the beasts of the earth.
The pale horse is really a dappled, white and grey. And the stars of Hyades are in Taurus. And we already know that Pisces is associated with death by sword, from the blessing Jacob gave Simeon and Levi, plague and fame, in fact almost all evils are associated with Pisces as Scorpio and Sagittarius rise during the time, and all the bad things associated with those two signs are considered to have a bearing upon it.
And we have seen all these things, death through sword-war, famine, plague, death by wild animals, increase dramatically in the age of Pisces.
|Face of a Man|
|Aquarius, Capricorn, Sagittarius|
|Face of an Ox||Face of a Lion|
|Pale Horse||Red Horse|
|Pisces, Aries, Taurus||Gemini, Cancer, Leo|
|Face of an Eagle|
|Virgo, Libra, Scorpio|
There isn't anything worth adding at this point. Astrology, astrology is one third of in the tree tiers of every Biblical story, and history is not one of the other parts, but prophecy is.
Old and New Testaments; I have copies of most bibles in my collection, I do not sanctify one above another, there are variations in translation in them all, all have merits, good and bad, for,
'Mal poise qui ne contrepoise.' He weighs badly, That weighs not one With, or against another.
