And the sixth Angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God. (This golden altar is the man, the woman, the fire, and the water: Iod He Vau He. The altar of God is Nature.)
Saying to the sixth Angel (Zachariel) which had the trumpet, Loose the four Angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. (These are the four Devarajas who govern the four winds.)
And the four Angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.
The four Angels of the four cardinal points of the Earth “which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year” will be let loose with the hydrogen bomb. Therefore, elements unknown to the human being will become unleashed and human science will not be able to control them.
The hydrogen bomb will be the pandemonium!
And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.
The number 200,000,000 gives us the Second Arcanum of the Tarot, when its numbers are Kabbalisticaly added together. The Second Arcanum is the woman, the Priestess, occult science.
The number two is Nature, and this great Nature will be tremendously agitated by great cataclysms.
The dreadful and terrible cataclysms of the times of the end will be produced by atomic power and the hydrogen bomb. Unknown elements from nature will be released with the hydrogen bomb, and nobody will be capable of controlling them.
The human armies, armed with atomic power, tele-electronically controlled rockets, hydrogen bombs, etc. will wound this great Nature.
Therefore, woe to the dwellers of the Earth!
And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. These horses and they who sat on them are nations, crowds, and tongues.
Therefore, fire of passion, smoke of laziness, and brimstone of pain are issued out of the mouths of the dwellers of the Earth.
Rajas and Tamas brings sicknesses, pain, darkness, desperation, wars, famine, crowded hospitals, etc.
Rajas is emotion, passion. Tamas is inertia, laziness.
By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.
Woe to the dwellers of the Earth! Woe to the scientists of the Antichrist! Woe to the vultures of war!
For their power is in their mouth, (which speaks blasphemies) and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt. These are the demons of this great Babylon: human-demons.
And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, not walk:
Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
The times of the end have arrived and we are in them.
The day and hour of the times of the end are hidden within the Kabbalistic mystery of the Arcanum 2,500.
