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!
When we see the ark of the covenant in heaven, we see God delivering on His word. He promised to write His law in the hearts of His people, and as history concludes, the Israel of faith is now carrying the ark with them to the battle in the time ahead, being protected on a troubled earth.
The ark of the covenant began to be revealed with the proclamation of God the Father through the Hunga Tonga volcanic eruption. Then commenced loud thundering and lightning as the voice of God rolled through the earth, one line—one lesson—at a time. Soon, He concluded His utterance as the ark of the covenant was completely revealed, and the thunder was heard that articulated the midnight hour. Thus is the power received of which we are to be witnesses to the world:
And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
As we come to that hour, the birth pangs of the church are increasing in intensity. But like when God promised Abraham a child in his old age, He gave an appointed time to look forward to, when the pledged son would be given, so it is today. Jesus will come at the appointed time according to His covenant with Abraham. Will the children of Abraham laugh at the impossibility, or turn to the faith of the fathers? God sent “Elijah” to turn the fathers to the children, giving time for the impossible to be accomplished in them.
Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse. (Malachi 4:5-6)
May the Holy Spirit lead you to look up to all truth and discern the word of God from the heavenly canvas that teaches us about the last rapid movements.
The Lord gives prophecy for a reason, and in this series, we begin to better understand God’s purposes. When we learn that the Lord is not limited to our finite concepts, but prophecy can fulfill in multiple ways, all working together to paint a complete picture, then we can make progress in understanding the depth and significance of His prophecies.
In The Threefold Key of Testimony, we delve into the relationship between Christ and His two witnesses in the setting of Daniel’s prophecy of the seventy weeks. The heavens show a cross—a burden for Jesus’ disciples to bear as He did—yet by that cross, the Second Coming is brought into focus. Have you borne your cross?
Then Jesus called the crowd, along with his disciples, and said to them, “If anyone wants to become my follower, he must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me. (Mark 8:34)
We see in shadows, but soon we shall see face to face. May you stand strong in the Lord as a witness to what He has done in you, being confident that He will bring it to completion. You may give the balm of your witness to the Lord’s work in saving you from sin, and that balm will serve to heal many others. Testify for the Rock, upon whom you firmly stand in these unstable times.
When the two moons of God’s pendulum clock strike midnight, the call is heard regarding our Bridegroom: “Go ye out to meet Him!” Do you have the character of the wise virgins? Do you have reserve oil in your vessels? Do you understand what it means to be saved by the blood of the Lamb? If Christ is in you, His gene of glory will be active in your life to bring about every needed reform by faith, and the light of your sacrificial character will shine in this time of darkness.
The Lord has shown the way to the marriage supper through the comets of His heavenly clocks. Though wickedness manifests in high places, God’s people need not fear; He is with them as they follow the procession of the Kings.
The biblical harvests of the apocalypse are drawing to their dramatic conclusion, as both sides of the war have completed their preparations and are gathering for the last great struggle. But God is with His people through the storm. They are His, and He seals them with His divine monogram, acknowledging that His character is in them. All of this is revealed by the course of the comets on God’s heavenly clocks as they blaze their way through the midnight hour, the fall of Babylon, and the arrival of the glorious city.
In seven verses of Revelation 14, a prophetic mystery is presented about a harvesting process in two phases at the end of the world. Far more than a poetic analogy of gathering the righteous like wheat into the barn or the wicked like overripe grapes bound straight for the winepress, this prophetic puzzle confirms the arrival of the blessed hope of God’s people amid troubled times when they need Him most. As it is with God’s revelation, while we can benefit from His words at any level, none could comprehend the detail and profound depth that they conceal until the time was right.
Who is it who takes a close look at the grapes of the earth, and determines that they are fit for the winepress of divine wrath? Who is it who stands larger than the earth to thrust in his giant sickle to cut them and cast them in? What is the important issue on the earth that readied God’s people for the test of this hour? Who is the angel who observed this divine harvest and determined that the virgin’s seed had borne fruit that was after the kind of Jesus, and would yield an abundant harvest?
These questions and more will be answered with divine clarity as the heavenly imagery reveals the mystery of the apocalyptic harvest.
A powerful and violent storm has come upon the world, so if at any time it seems to be calm, be aware that you are in the eye of the storm, and there are more fierce winds shortly ahead. Like storms form from a clash of warm air and cold, so on the earth, the conflict between Christ and Satan is being amplified to a final climax. The abomination that maketh desolate has shown its ugly face, and the world has lined up behind it in support. But God has also gathered His army, and in line with the revelation of Daniel’s two witnesses, they take their position for the Lord.
What will be the outcome of this showdown? Those who walk with the spirit and power of Elijah will demonstrate to the world who the true God is, and how He has opened the way to heaven. Will you follow the One who is the Way through the Truth to Life? He is our Deliverer from the woes of earth and from the enemy whose sinful ways have brought those woes upon the population.
The prideful greed for power and control by those who learn from Satan has resulted in even an agricultural apocalypse that demands a strategic change on the part of God’s people to achieve their best physical and spiritual condition for their service in His army in the adverse conditions present on earth. But though the enemy has gained much through his destructive ways, in the end, the Creator will restore all that was lost.
And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. (Revelation 21:5-6)
Kings and dignitaries in ancient times had engraved signet rings which served as their seal—comparable to one’s personal signature today. It was pressed into clay to form bullas that sealed an item or message, giving the assurance that it was from that person, or that it belonged to them.
Is it any wonder, then, that the King of kings Himself should have His own royal seal? But no signet of gold would be sufficiently grand to serve as the seal of the living God! Therefore, formed in the heavens by His own handiwork, the signet of the Son of man has appeared with unparalleled grandeur that none else could imagine. The two comets that trace it tell the story of His sacrifice and that of His people through the symbolism of the constellations through which they travel. This signet speaks of the Lord’s immovable will in the Strength of the Unicorn, of the vanquishing of His enemies with the unclean hare in the crosshairs, and the open ark of His law that is at the heart of all He—and His church body—does.
How much information can the Divine Monogram contain, is only limited by one’s understanding of the heavens and the work of our Lord to rescue His people from a world doomed to destruction, by providing an Ark of safety to escape in. One need not fear anything that may come upon the earth in the time depicted by this sign, because we can trust in the name of the Lord, whose seal is pressed even into our very hearts.
