Article series of the four authors of the White Cloud Farm.
You may believe you know God, but this article series will challenge your notion of who He is and what He can do—and has done! In the first article of the series, you will understand that God Is Not Just Love! His character is also revealed in time. Experiencing an unchanging God who is Time is unlike anything else you can imagine! Read about the often dramatic adventures He led us through as we approached The Day of the Witnesses at the end of the LastCountdown prophecy timeframe, including the trial and rebellion that overcame the weak-hearted when we asked Time for more time.
That prayer and how God led us to that understanding is one of those memories that is forever etched into our minds. But for your benefit, the story of The Hour of Decision has been preserved with the many lessons that came during our camp meeting on the hill of sacrifice. At first, we believed that the time of the tribulation of The Seven Lean Years would be a brief story to tell, but as it was being written, ray after ray of light began to shine on the slopes of Mt. Chiasmus as the peals of the second time proclamation began to roll through the earth and the trumpets finally gave their sound in loud tones!
Malachi prophesied that Elijah would come just before the great and dreadful day of the Lord. This series will show you that he has indeed come at every critical point in history, including today! You will learn who he is, and what his work entails. You will see who the faithful Elijahs of past generations were, and how each one fulfilled part of the prophecy and added to our understanding of what the last Elijah must accomplish. You will learn who the last Elijah is, and why you can be certain that he (and you) will not miss seeing the coming of the Lord, as his predecessors did. Finally, you will see how signs and wonders are accompanying the modern Elijah, and how the characteristic fire from heaven of his namesake will bring the world to a decision point to serve God or Satan, and how he equips this generation to be faithful to God through the time of trouble.
For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. (Malachi 4:1)
This work is for those among the living who want to know the truth whatever the cost, and for those among the dead who lived according the present truth they had. If you do not fit into one of those categories, then this testament is not for you.
Section 1 defines the parties involved. It states who we are: the testators. It indicates how we will sign this last will and testament at the end. It specifies who the beneficiaries are, who the only rightful heirs of this legacy are, and it even excludes a specific group who is not entitled to it. This is of special interest, because a person will want to know if he/she qualifies or not. This section will reveal who the 144,000 of Revelation really are.
Section 2 explains the testament itself—the everlasting covenant that God made with mankind—and demonstrates that we are indeed the holders of the covenant and that we have the testamentary capacity (legal ability) to make this last will and testament. No other party can convey what we have for the heirs.
Section 3 describes the legacy that is transferred to the heirs. It includes the vast treasure store of spiritual gemstones, precious materials, pearls, and all kinds of jewels, and—what we know will be especially comforting to the heirs—the clock of their Original Father, the one-of-a-kind Grandfather’s Clock of all clocks, whose soothing tick-tock and pleasant chimes will take them back to the home where they belong. It has a personalized engraving just for them. These divine gifts are given for their comfort and spiritual maintenance as the heirs, like how the gold, frankincense, and myrrh were used to provide for Jesus and his family while they were in Egypt.
Section 4 builds upon the Elijah Signs to show how the divine Notary witnesses the signatures of the testators, and seals the testament with the Notary’s official seal. It identifies who the Notary is, and how His seal includes security features that are impossible to counterfeit. Despite uncertainty on every side, those who hold this last will and testament can rest assured that it has been certified for acceptance in the highest court of the universe and provides what is needed to obtain not only the provisions for the rest of the heirs’ journey on earth, but also their heavenly inheritance.
As the second woe passed and the judgment of the living closed, a transition took place: the Intercessor between God and man set aside His priestly garments to be arrayed in royal majesty for the exercise of His kingly power over this world. This is good news for those whose sins went beforehand to judgment, but it speaks severity and wrath to the transgressors of God’s law.
The time has come to rule the nations with the rod of iron. As Christ is seated on the throne of Time, a comet appears in the great clock among the heavenly constellations, known as the Horologium. Has the end of all things come? Is this the sign of the Son of man?
Discovered on the birthday of Jesus, the comet of time is intrinsically linked to the Son of man, and it traces a path that contains messages of His glorious return. What does it mean for you? Are you ready and able to hold in your hands the gift of eternal life? Has your meaning of life on earth been satisfactory to you, and to Him? Are you ready to take your journey to the stars, or do you have unfinished business on this world?
With their sights above as the Lord rises in majesty, the saints on earth plead for Him to remember. Remember Babylon! Remember the evils she has committed and how she oppresses the righteous! Pour out to her Your wrath without mercy and deliver Your own from her clutches!
Indeed, we see how the manifestation of the justice of God has begun. The heavens declare His righteousness, as Leviathan is turned back the way he came. The armies of the wicked are falling by their own swords, one against the other.
Meanwhile, God’s people are being brought before the councils. Who will be able to defend their faith against the pressures of receiving the vaccine? Those whom God has numbered will be able to refuse the number of the beast and enter the Kingdom of God at last.
When searching for the Lord, one must be open to follow the way He leads. When the news of the Hunga Tonga eruption reached us, we recognized it as God’s final warning call and published the article The Father has Declared the Time as a result. We had no idea what vast amounts of light would pour into our souls in the course of the months that followed.
As events came in rapid succession and divine insight poured in, we began to share what the Lord had shown us with our Refuge members and to publish those packets of solid spiritual food in the form of PDFs on our website, under the title of Final Observations. These were our last “notes” to the left-behind.
This last writing effort has taken turns that we could never have expected. While nearing the end of our “Final Observations” and putting the last few PDFs online, we realized that God had led us on a mini trek through our own 42 stations—42 studies—like the children of Israel were led through 42 stations during their exodus from Egypt before entering Canaan. The first article about Hunga Tonga served as the trumpet blast to call the camp to order for the journey, after which followed the 42 studies. Our last study of these 42, however, contained so much information that we needed to break it into two parts, much like how the story of Israel’s last stop in the plains of Moab is described in two separate chapters: Numbers 22 and 33. Recognizing the biblical pattern, we opted to publish this two-part study as a two-part series under the title At the Jordan. This two-part series even talks a lot about the modern-day equivalent of Balaam, who was a stumbling block for Israel and whose modern-day counterpart had to be overcome by the truth. We could not have known in advance that our final journey would fulfill the biblical type so clearly!
After these 42 studies, the crowning of the message required one more article entitled Sealing the Journey that would close the message with a sevenfold seal. From then on, the land of Canaan awaits!
