The Four Horsemen:  A 2,000-Year Ride
by Elizabeth Clare Prophet



"In the course of dealing with personal and planetary psychology and the karma of the cycles, the soul will encounter the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.  These impressive Cosmic Beings sent by God through the Four Beasts come as initiators of the soul of the planet.  They are emissaries from the Court of the Sacred Fire.  Though they are fearsome, we ought not to fear them.  For in them we meet our God.  Through them we know God as the Lawgiver, whose law of karma is inexorable."  

   On February 22, 1989, the LORD God gave me another vision of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.  I have chosen the occasion of my speaking to you in New York City, May 21, 1989, to give you this revelation.

   The vision that I received in September 1986 was not the complete ride of the Four Horsemen.  I was seeing a slice of a ride that had begun in a.d. 2, which John wrote down in Revelation in a.d. 90.  It will conclude in the year 2002.

   In my February 22 vision, God revealed to me that the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse have ridden throughout the centuries of the Christian era.  John saw them riding through his time and through his history.  I am seeing them ride through our time and our history.

   What is even more astounding is that for the last 2,000 years the Four Horsemen have been delivering a 25,800-year package of personal and planetary karma!  This means that the cumulative karma of earth's evolutions from 11 past ages fell due at the dawn of the Piscean age.

Just as the planet has four planes of being, or four lower bodies, so do we.  These are energy fields, four interpenetrating sheaths of consciousness, each vibrating in its own dimension.  (Spiritual, Mental, Emotional & Physical Bodies -CR)
Together they are a microcosm of the planetary macrocosm.
(Multi-dimensional outpicturings of the Holographic Universe -CR)

About the year 2000 b.c. we entered the age of Aries.  Two thousand years ago we entered the age of Pisces.  And now we are entering the age of Aquarius.  As we pass through each of the 12 signs of the zodiac, we receive a dispensation from the Great Central Sun whereby the Four and Twenty Elders and the Four Cosmic Forces impart to the evolutions of the planet a new awareness of self in relationship to a new awareness of God.

   In the age of Aries we received the gift of knowing God the Father, the I AM THAT I AM; in the age of Pisces, God the Son; and in the age of Aquarius, God the Holy Spirit and God the Mother.  We see these signs of man's awareness of his God appearing throughout these thousands of years in religion East and West.

 In the course of dealing with personal and planetary psychology and the karma of the cycles, the soul will encounter the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.  These impressive Cosmic Beings sent by God through the Four Beasts come as initiators of the soul of the planet.  They are emissaries from the Court of the Sacred Fire.  Though they are fearsome, we ought not to fear them.  For in them we meet our God.  Through them we know God as the Lawgiver, whose law of karma is inexorable.

Thus the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are Cosmic Initiators who are providing the final karmic testing at the conclusion of this 25,800-year cycle to all of earth's evolutions.  None are exempt.

In my book The Forbidden Mysteries of Enoch, I published all of the extant writings of Enoch with an introduction explaining the modus operandi of these fallen angels.EN21  It gives you an understanding of the struggle between Light and Darkness and an explanation of how there can be Absolute Evil:  It is the absolute dedication of fallen angels against God and his people and his Christ embodied in them.

The Watchers have created this international debt bomb. These archdeceivers of mankind have done it, and they have thereby brought us to the brink of nuclear war.  Their karma will fall due and it will come upon them in their citadels of money and power that they have stolen from the people–on Wall Street, in the markets, in the banking houses.  That karma will come upon them as surely as the Night turns into Day and the Day turns into Night.

Therefore we must hearken unto the ancient cry of Joshua, “Come apart and be a separate people.”EN22  Because when their world economic order comes tumbling down, if you are tied to it–because in your greed you have been lured by their illusions, lured by your ungodly desires instead of being satisfied with the soul's true inner desiring for her God–then you will lose not only your fortunes but your life with them.

   From the beginning the fallen angels have manipulated the children of God into taking the rap for their karma.  And this is why when Jesus was crucified he said of the people who shouted, “Crucify him!  Crucify him!”  “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”EN23  They were tricked into taking upon themselves the karma for the crucifixion of Jesus Christ when it was actually the Watchers of Rome and Jerusalem who plotted the death not only of the Christ in Jesus, but also of the Christ in all sons and daughters of God who would follow in his footsteps.

   The fallen angels have infiltrated all peoples, all races, all governments, all institutions.  They are not unique to any race.  And the way they divide and conquer is that they incarnate in this or that race or group or religion.  Then the people associate either their “evil” behavior or their “good” behavior with the group or cause and become pro this and anti that.  And the people become tools of the fallen angels' hatred of the Christ within the people!  This is why the people need true shepherds, true Christs and true prophets to lead them.

And so the fallen angels have been using these ploys against the people from time immemorial, taking advantage of the people's ignorance and their faithlessness to Divine Love and to Unity, when they should be loving one another as brethren.

All of us together, no matter who we are or where we came from, are brothers and sisters in Christ, one with the Ascended Masters, our elder brothers and sisters in heaven.  But divide and conquer is the tactic of the fallen angels, and they have carried it to such great lengths that they actually get us to line up on the battlefield to destroy one another in their wars for territory, for commodities, for the wine and the oil, and for money and power.

   The fallen angels are behind the karma of both the black horse and the red horse.  They know the cycles of karma and they use them in their war against the Lightbearers.  In fact, they have set up the collapse of the economies through their abuse of the money supply.  They have loaned our savings deposited in New York banks to Third World nations who, they should have had a pretty good idea, would not be able to properly manage that money or ever pay it back.

   Of course, because oil prices had been artificially high, they thought they would remain high and that oil-producing nations such as Mexico and Venezuela would be able to repay the loans because of their income from oil.  Then oil dropped, again as part of descending karma, and it became apparent that the nations, both those who produced oil and those who imported it, would never be able to pay back their debt.

   I would like to remind you of what the God and Goddess Meru told us on February 27, 1983:

   Realize, then, that when power was at their hand OPEC would use the price of oil to nearly destroy the free economies of the earth.EN24  

   For you must realize that you have known for millennia that the manipulation of the oil and the wheat,EN25 commodities that are fundamental to life, would signal the beginning of the end of a world economy or even the beginning of world cataclysm.EN26


It is an hour, then, when little by little the pieces in this puzzle are coming together.  We saw the atrocities in Vietnam.  We saw a no-win war where our soldiers went to battle and were killed or maimed for life and then rejected by their countrymen.  We see the outrage in nations around the world where freedom fighters will fight for freedom without the necessary backing from the United States to win a decisive victory.  And then we have the media cooperating with World Communism in its effort to put on a human face.

   In summing up this chapter on my visions of the Four Horsemen, what I see of their current ride is that they are running on a large racetrack.  This track is so large that when they're on the other side of it, they go over the horizon.  Right now the white horse is in the lead, as he has generally been since April 23, 1969, as I said, although the black horse temporarily passed him in September 1986, when I was seeing the warnings of the October crash.  The black horse remained in the lead until October 19, 1987, when the black and the white horses galloped by me.

   Today I see the black horse and the red horse neck and neck.  They are riding close together, the cycles have accelerated and we're down to the wire in the timetables.  At this writing it appears that the judgment will descend simultaneously upon the economy and the nation.

   On August 8, 1988, El Morya said:  “Understand, then, beloved, that as you know the signs written by Nostradamus, foretold by Mary, by Jesus, by the signs in the heavens, a break in the economy itself is the precursor to war and the sign and signal of it.  I pray you understand why preparedness, setting one's financial house in order, is so essential and [why] the immediacy, then, of preparing those shelters is also upon you.”EN27

   I would like to remind you that there is a divine solution to the handwriting on the wall that we read.  And unless some of us are willing to enter into the seriousness of what we are facing as a planet, to look at it squarely and not be afraid to accept it as our challenge, it will come to pass.

   But if we are willing to adjust our lives to deal with the exigencies of the hour and make the time to invoke the Light of God and secure our own place prepared, we will see that we can make the difference as those who are determined to hold our finger in the dike, if not on a planetary scale, then at least in our personal lives.

   And the Lord, the Mighty I AM Presence, will help those who help themselves.
