February 24, 2022 (Day 55): Russian President Vladimir Putin
announced the anticipated invasion of Ukraine at dawn on
Februsary 24, 2022. President Putin made the
announcement just before 5:00 AM Ukraine time (0300 GMT) as
cruise missiles and air strikes hit military targets from three
sides of the country (North, South, and East). Although he
had a difficult time coming up with a plausible excuse for
the attack, his ambition appeared to be to reunite former Soviet
states, including Ukraine and Belarus, with Russia. The
government of Ukraine has attempted to align with the West
and reject Russia. This has incensed Putin and the
Russians. The objectives of the invasion appear
to be to take the capital Kiev and topple the
government while preserving the infrastructure.
After the invasion US President Biden and European leaders took
immediate action to impose stiff economic sanctions on
Russia. World stock markets fell and the price of oil rose
to $100 a barrel.
The invasion of Ukraine is
symbolized by the Four Horses of the Apocalypse.
President Putin in his role as commander of the Russian military
symbolized the King of the North who will go out to conquer in
the Tribulation (Rev 6:2). He was symbolized by the White
Horse of the Apocalypse. The invasion of Ukraine was the
symbol of the Red Horse of the Apocalypse (Rev. 6:4). The
economic sanctions imposed by President Biden and the European
leaders symbolized the Black Horse of the Apocalypse (Rev 6:5,
However, the scenario of the Ukraine invasion differs from
the events of the Tribulation. In the attack on
Ukraine President Putin is actually behaving like the
future Antichrist head of the European Union who will attack
three of the kings who opposed him (Dan 7:24). In this
respect Putin is trying to restore the former Soviet states
like the Antichrist. In fact, Putin has aligned
himself with the Russian Orthodox Church as a replacement
for the Roman Catholic Church of the Revived Roman
Chart at the time of the Russian invasion of Ukraine contains a
Bowl on the Spiritual side of the Chart. The Bowl
symbolizes a bowl of cursing that is being poured out on the
Earth by the angels. The Moon has risen in Scorpius, for
the Prostitute of Babylon, corresponding to Ukraine. And
the Morning Star and Red Planet are in conjunction in
Sagittarius near the Ascendant. The Morning Star
symbolizes a commander with his armies, corresponding to the
King of the North and Putin. The Red Planet symbolizes a
bloody army or city, corresponding to the Ukraine military or
the city of Kiev that will suffer from the Russian attack.
The Mediator Planet is nearing conjunction with the Bottom of
Heaven, corresponding to the death of an official. The
President of Ukraine is obviously the target of the invasion of
Kiev, and the Coronavirus pestilence is still causing death.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine symbolizes the
attack of the Evil King Antichrist upon the Prostitute of
Babylon in the Tribulation (Rev 17:16). President Putin
corresponds to the Evil King Antichrist, and Ukraine
corresponds to the Prostitute of Babylon, who rules the civil
government. So, the capital Kiev corresponds to
The rising of the Morning Star in conjunction with the Red
Planet near the Ascendant along with the Moon in Scorpius,
which is higher in the sky, points to God as the source of
this Judgment. The cursing of the Bowl Judgment is God's
Plan to destroy the devil's kingdom in 2022.
The events correspond to the Four Horses of the Apocalypse
Horse - Antichrist conqueror
Horse - war, suffering
Horse - famine, economic decline
Horse - pestilence, death
