Behold the Power of God

 

IMPORTANTAttention: although we advocate for freedom of conscience in matters of receiving the experimental COVID-19 vaccine, we do NOT condone violent protests or violence of any kind. We address this topic in the video entitled God’s Instruction for Protesters Today. We advise being peaceful, maintaining a low profile, and complying with the general health rules that are in effect in your area (such as wearing a mask, washing hands, and maintaining prescribed distances) as long as they do not go against God’s laws, while avoiding situations that would require one to get vaccinated. “Be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves” (from Matthew 10:16).

With a certain amount of fear and trepidation, this article will reveal what has not been seen by the world since the Babylonian captivity of ancient Israel. It is a historical artifact that struck terror in the hearts of Israel’s enemies because of the supernatural power that accompanied it. What you are about to see will reveal a power beyond the ken of mortals that will work salvation for those who are holy and death to the unclean. We are speaking about is the Ark of the Covenant—the power of which guaranteed the victory in battle to those who fulfilled the conditions of the covenant it housed, making them invincible to their foes. This sacred ark was prophesied to be revealed at the end of time—not on earth as an archaeological discovery, but in heaven in vivid splendor:

And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail. (Revelation 11:19)

In The Ark of God, we already caught a glimpse of the outline of the sacred chest. However, the form was not yet completely drawn in the heavens, and likewise the significance of this unveiling had yet to be understood. The reason this “wooden box” captures the interest and inspires wonder is because of the power of God that is associated with it. The very purpose of its construction indicates this:

And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel. (Exodus 25:22)

The ark of the covenant was not just an object; it was the throne of the Living God who sees and inhabits all time and space at once. The presence of the ark in the camp of Israel signified that God was dwelling among His people, and for this reason divine power emanated from it. The same power was with us in the Person of Jesus Christ when He became a man.

Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. (Matthew 1:23)

Although He humbled Himself to be born a man and did not then sit on a golden throne, all the authority and power of God was invested in Him. With a word, disease fled from Him, spiritual darkness vanished, sins were forgiven, men were made holy, uncontrollable demons yielded their prey, and the dead lived.

No less power is in Jesus’ hand today, as He sits on the throne of heaven—the very throne which served as the Great Original which the ancient Ark of the Covenant was patterned after.

Do we need the power of Jesus today? In a world where men in power, urged on by demons, are devising ways to vaccinate the citizenry with genetic material that is contrary to God’s design, do we still need His healing power in our bodies? In a world where debauchery is prided as exemplary, do we need His power over the wickedness that infests this fallen world? In a world where the financial elite manipulate the money supply until the new normal makes workers into slaves, do we crave Christ’s healing of our spirits? When the incumbent financiers of the outgoing financial system savagely calumniate the only storage of value that offers freedom in a world of total surveillance, do we need the marvelous wit of the One who said to render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s?

Crossing Jordan As we prepare to conquer the heavenly Canaan, the story of the fall of the ancient stronghold of Jericho serves as an example of the power of the Ark of the Covenant. The nation who had walked with God in their midst had learned to trust His power—the power that could dry up the overflowing Jordan the very moment the priests bearing the ark stepped into the water.

Next, they faced a walled-up city:

As the Israelites continued on their journey, the Ark became instrumental again in Joshua 6. The people were up against Jericho’s wall where no one came in and no one came out. The Lord told Joshua to have armed men march around the wall for six days. Priests in the procession blew trumpets followed by the Ark of the Covenant. On the seventh day, the marching army was instructed to give a loud shout and the walls of Jericho came tumbling down. The people did what the Lord instructed and took over the city. The chapter ends with verse 27: “So the Lord was with Joshua, and his fame spread throughout the land.” God’s presence and power, seen in the Ark-marching army, caused the walls of Jericho to collapse. (biblestudytools.com)

Like the shut gates of Jericho, the door of the Noah’s Ark of this generation has also been shut, and as Revelation says, nobody will change sides anymore. Those who are for Jericho will not come out, and those who are for Israel will not go in—until the walls come tumbling down.

He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. (Revelation 22:11)

What collapsed even before the walls of Jericho was the hearts of its residents. They knew that the same power that worked on Israel’s behalf to part the Red Sea was still with them, and it became a terror to all the nations around, as Rahab said:

And she said unto the men, I know that the Lord hath given you the land, and that your terror is fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land faint because of you. For we have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red sea for you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites, that were on the other side Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom ye utterly destroyed. And as soon as we had heard these things, our hearts did melt, neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because of you: for the Lord your God, he is God in heaven above, and in earth beneath. (Joshua 2:9-11)

It was the presence of God and the supernatural works that He did against Israel’s enemies that struck terror in their hearts. If even the sea parted for Israel, what power could resist them!?

Therefore, as we lift the veil of the sacred Ark of the Covenant in heaven in this article, it will be a message of both strength and courage to spiritual Israel of today and a message of terror to the wicked—without respect of persons. The throne of God is nothing to trifle with—even the Israelites were not protected by or from its power when they had backslid and reneged on their obedience to the law given at Mt. Sinai. They had no power to fight the Philistines because they were morally compromised.

So the people sent to Shiloh, that they might bring from thence the ark of the covenant of the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth between the cherubims: and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were there with the ark of the covenant of God… And the Philistines fought, and Israel was smitten, and they fled every man into his tent: and there was a very great slaughter; for there fell of Israel thirty thousand footmen. And the ark of God was taken; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were slain. (1 Samuel 4:4, 10-11)

This story demonstrates that the power of God that was manifested in connection with the ark was not to be manipulated. God is a Person, not a lucky charm, and when the debased, fornicating priests[1] carried His throne into battle, could they expect the very presence of the Almighty on His throne to result in anything other than death to the sinner?

And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live. (Exodus 33:20)

The guilt of sin is so antithetical to the nature of God that His presence consumes it—person and all.

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Romans 3:23)

That is why the sins of the world needed to be passed beforehand to judgment. It has been His mercy to hide Himself from man’s view, but what shall befall the world when He is seen?

For our God is a consuming fire. (Hebrews 12:29)

In the aforementioned battle, the Philistines killed the priests bearing the ark and took it to their own land. That was a Big Mistake. The people and priests of Israel had not been faithful to God—much less had the Philistines! How could they dare to handle the throne of God in their midst without His wrath breaking out upon them?

They put the prize in the Dagon’s temple, but the statue of their false god kept falling before the Ark. The Lord brought more devastation on the Philistines, and they decided to get rid of the stolen possession, moving it to the city of Gath. However, Gath experienced the same horrible hardship and relocated the chest to a third city, where again devastation afflicted the people. Finally, after seven months, the Philistines decided they’d had enough. They needed to return the Ark to the Israelites. (biblestudytools.com)

When the ark was returned to Israel, it was still not handled with the level of respect that was due. No one was permitted to touch or even lay eyes on this sacred throne except the priests. Not even the Levites were allowed to see it uncovered,[2] according to the Lord’s instructions.

And the Levites took down the ark of the Lord, and the coffer that was with it, wherein the jewels of gold were, and put them on the great stone: and the men of Bethshemesh offered burnt offerings and sacrificed sacrifices the same day unto the Lord….And he smote the men of Bethshemesh, because they had looked into the ark of the Lord, even he smote of the people fifty thousand and threescore and ten men: and the people lamented, because the Lord had smitten many of the people with a great slaughter. And the men of Bethshemesh said, Who is able to stand before this holy Lord God? and to whom shall he go up from us? (1 Samuel 6:15, 19-20)

Not even the Levites escaped the consequences of violating God’s instructions regarding the sacred handling of the ark. They opened the lid and looked inside! That is what we will do in the following pages, but our role and our motive is different. We will reveal what is inside, to your very eyes. Should you be afraid? Should you turn your eyes away?

In contrast to the story of the Levites who looked inside the ark, the elders of Israel who had lived in the time of Moses and had walked in obedience and faithfulness to God were permitted to see God and live:

Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel: And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness. And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink. (Exodus 24:9-11)

Only those with pure hearts and clean hands—a love for God shown by respect to His commands—can behold His presence. Not even Uzzah was excused, who meant well to stabilize the ark as it was being carried by cart in the time of David. God had instructed that the ark be transported only by the priests or Levites, who were to carry it by hand using its poles so that the ark itself would not be touched. Later on, you will see who bears the ark, and whether or not Uzzah’s mistake will be repeated.

We publish this light for spiritual-tactical reasons. We have a city to conquer, and the great power of God is accompanying us. We are in a war with demons to fight, and there is only one power we trust against them—the power of the Living God who dwells between the cherubim. He is our strength, and He is revealing Himself. As Israel of old was given the covenant to be kept in the ancient ark, so we have received His covenant from heaven. The covenant—old and new—represents the right or title to possess the Promised Land.

Those who think to own the world today—like the WHOs and the WEFs and the G7s of the world—are not the heirs designated by the Maker of this earth. The only legitimate heirs are those whom the Creator has given the earth to:

What man is he that feareth the Lord? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose. His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth. The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant. Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net. (Psalm 25:12-15)

The secret (or mystery) of God is with those who fear Him, who respect Him, who love Him, who sacrifice for Him—and His covenant is with them, to establish them over all His realm:

He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s, and he hath set the world upon them. He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail. The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the Lord shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed. (1 Samuel 2:8-10)

The “Ark Angels”

The historical accounts of the ark of the covenant from the sacred record have inspired various depictions in popular culture—in film and in print—of what the ark might have looked like and how it might have slain Israel’s enemies. More accurate in its basic form than the popular illustrations, however, is the simple drawing used in the Orion presentation:

The Ark of the Covenant

So far, what we have seen in the heavens is only the chest and the staves, as compared to the picture of the ark in the article The Ark of God:

The Ark Without the Mercy Seat

One can even say that since the sun (with its corona) traces the “lid” of the box, even the crown molding around the edge of the lid is represented there:

And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, within and without shalt thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it a crown of gold round about. (Exodus 25:11)

It is to the four corners of this crown that the rings for the poles are mounted. The poles belong at the top of the box (as shown in the heavens, but unlike the drawing above). The chest hangs below the staves with the tables of stone inside as ballast, giving the ark a lower center of gravity so it isn’t top-heavy like Satan.

Having seen the chest and the staves, however, is not enough to say we have seen the ark of the covenant. Where are the two cherubim who stand on either side of the ark? We can identify the cherubim by understanding that in the heavens, we are seeing the layout of the actual throne of God, which was seen in vision by the prophets and described in detail by both Ezekiel and John the Revelator.

And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne…. And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. (Revelation 4:2, 6-7)

It is known that the four creatures around the throne correspond to the four main tribes of Israel at the four compass directions, and also to the four cardinal constellations of the Mazzaroth. Equally spaced around the ecliptic are the constellations of Taurus (the face of the calf) in the heavenly west, Leo (the lion) in the east, Aquila flying up high in the north along the galactic equator (the flying eagle) and Aquarius (the man) in the south.

Now it is not hard to recognize the amazing “coincidence” that the path of a one-time comet from the Oort cloud C/2021 O3 PanSTARRS has traced the ark in just such a way that it rests between two of the cardinal constellations of the Mazzaroth, stretching perfectly from Taurus (the cherub with the face of the calf) to Aquarius (the cherub with the face of a man).

The Covering Cherubim

However, we are at the same time presented with the task of reconciling why four living creatures surround the throne in Revelation while only two cherubim stand at the ark of the covenant. The Bible gives us the answer in the description of the temple of Solomon:

And the oracle he prepared in the house within, to set there the ark of the covenant of the Lord…. And within the oracle he made two cherubims of olive tree, each ten cubits high…. And he set the cherubims within the inner house: and they stretched forth the wings of the cherubims, so that the wing of the one touched the one wall, and the wing of the other cherub touched the other wall; and their wings touched one another in the midst of the house. (1 Kings 6:19, 23, 27)

In the most holy place of the temple—the throne room of God—Solomon placed not only the ark of the covenant with its two cherubim, but also two other large cherub figures. Thus, in total, there were four cherubim around the throne, just like the four living beings described in Revelation, but only two of them stood directly at the ark.

It is well known that these four living beings around the throne express four primary character traits of Jesus Christ. Like the lion who is king of all the animals that roam the earth, Jesus reigns on earth; like the eagle who is king of all the birds of the sky, so Jesus reigns in heaven; like the man whom God gave dominion over the earth, Jesus became a man to reclaim through righteousness what Adam forfeited through sin—and finally, as the calf is the teachable and obedient animal of sacrifice, it shows Jesus’ self-sacrificial character in offering His life on the cross of Calvary in our stead.

Why, then, does the ark of the covenant in heaven have specifically the calf and the man standing on either side? These two faces represent the sacrifices of Jesus Christ—first He sacrificed to lay aside His divinity and become a man (signified by Aquarius), and then He sacrificed even His life as a man (signified by Taurus).

Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. (Philippians 2:6-8)

It is these two sacrificial character traits—divine character traits—that show Jesus’ worthiness to rule as king over heaven and earth. It was His self-sacrificial character that Lucifer called into question when he rebelled in heaven, accusing God of being unjust in demanding more in the way of obedience from His creatures than what He Himself would be willing to do.

Pardoning, redeeming love is brought to view in Christ Jesus. Satan had misrepresented the character of God, and it was necessary that a correct representation should be made to worlds unfallen, to angels, and to men. Satan had declared that God knew nothing of self-denial, of mercy and love, but that he was stern, exacting, and unforgiving. Satan never tested the forgiving love of God; for he never exercised genuine repentance. His representations of God were incorrect; he was a false witness, an accuser of Christ, and an accuser of all those who throw off the Satanic yoke, and come back to render willing allegiance to the God of heaven. {RH March 9, 1897, par. 3}

Jesus Christ—the perfect illustration of God’s love in human form—disproved Satan’s claim with His readiness and willingness to leave His position in heaven and sacrifice His life on earth so that the glory He had laid aside in heaven could be restored to humanity. What Satan wanted to secure by force, Jesus was willing to freely give of His own accord! In this way, Jesus demonstrated His worthiness to rule.

Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. (Revelation 5:12)

Furthermore, it is through the expression of these two traits of character that Jesus united Himself with humanity—first in becoming a man, and second in dying as a man for mankind. This sacrifice is the foundation of His covenant to save us and restore us to communion with God.

By His life and His death, Christ has achieved even more than recovery from the ruin wrought through sin. It was Satan’s purpose to bring about an eternal separation between God and man; but in Christ we become more closely united to God than if we had never fallen. In taking our nature, the Saviour has bound Himself to humanity by a tie that is never to be broken [an eternal covenant]. Through the eternal ages He is linked with us. “God so loved the world, that He gave His only-begotten Son.” John 3:16. He gave Him not only to bear our sins, and to die as our sacrifice; He gave Him to the fallen race. To assure us of His immutable counsel of peace, God gave His only-begotten Son to become one of the human family, forever to retain His human nature. This is the pledge that God will fulfill His word. “Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder.” God has adopted human nature in the person of His Son, and has carried the same into the highest heaven. It is the “Son of man” who shares the throne of the universe. It is the “Son of man” whose name shall be called, “Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6. The I AM is the Daysman between God and humanity, laying His hand upon both. He who is “holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners,” is not ashamed to call us brethren. Hebrews 7:26; 2:11. In Christ the family of earth and the family of heaven are bound together. Christ glorified is our brother. Heaven is enshrined in humanity, and humanity is enfolded in the bosom of Infinite Love. {DA 25.3}

Therefore, it is the two sacrificial cherubim (man and calf) who stand on either side of the ark: these character traits are directly related to God’s covenantal relationship with us—for which reason the ark of the covenant exists in the first place!

By contrast, the fact that Jesus has ascended to the throne of God and been made King of heaven and earth (eagle and lion) does not represent the merits or worthiness of the self-sacrifice but the reward. Dominion has been granted to Him in proportion to the sacrifice He made in giving His life for those He loved.

Thus, there is only one place in the heavens between the four cardinal constellations where the ark of the covenant can appear: between the two sacrificial signs of the calf and the man.

The fact that we see the ark perfectly situated between these two cherubim is also confirmation that the drawing by Pinkoski (used in the Orion presentation) is the only accurate depiction of the ark of the covenant in regard to the cherubim. It is the configuration that matches the heavenly pattern!

However, neither Taurus nor Aquarius have wings. Could the curved trajectory of comet PanSTARRS be showing not the hidden staff, but the wings of the cherubim?

The Wings of the Cherubim

This would mean the ark is seen perfectly from the side, and thus the straight line of the ecliptic represents both staves. (Soon you will even see who carries the ark by the staves!) However you prefer to visualize the cherubim, the key point is that Taurus and Aquarius represent the two angels who stand on either side of the ark, and until you see them as such, you haven’t seen the ark!

The Presence of God

Will the earthly ark ever be found again? Maybe, maybe not—but what Revelation says is that at the end of time, the ark is to be seen in heaven, where the true image of Christ coming in power and glory is displayed. We are instructed to “look up” for our redemption draweth nigh, knowing that our Lord ascended into the heavens. It is neither necessary nor sufficient to see the ark of the covenant representing the presence of God being brought out of a cave and broadcast on TV.

Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. (Matthew 24:26)

The cherubim are standing on either side of the ark, but where is the Shekinah glory, the cloud that enshrouds God’s presence on the throne? Previous articles have explained that the constellation of Aries represents Jesus as the Lamb sitting on the throne at the right hand of the Father, and the two fish of the constellation Pisces represent the redeemed 144,000 and the resurrected saints who sit together with Him, as the Bible says:

To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. (Revelation 3:21)

But the question remains, where is the cloud of glory over the ark?

During their wilderness wanderings, the children of Israel sensed the presence of God through the cloud that was above the tabernacle of the testimony by day and the fire by night. Likewise, the glory of the Lord above the ark filled the most holy place at the dedication of Solomon’s temple.

And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the Lord, So that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of the Lord. (1 Kings 8:10-11)

In the article The Hour of Philadelphia, there is a hint to where this cloud might be found:

Even the order is shown, as the planets move right to left in the Hebrew way of reading: the right fish is laying down, representing the dead in Christ who will be raised at His coming. Then the left fish represents those who are alive and remaining, who are caught up together with them in the cloud (symbolized by the Andromeda “nebula,” anciently known as the “Little Cloud,” which the fish points to). Thus, Jesus’ catch is pointed to by Venus (the dead in Christ, like Moses as a type for Christ) and the messenger’s catch is pointed to by Mercury (the living saints, with the antitypical Elijah).

In the heavenly scene that is unfolding to our eyes, the cloud of the Andromeda galaxy is perfectly situated over the throne of God, on which is granted to sit the redeemed with the Lamb:

The Cloud of Glory

The cloud over the tabernacle was the sign that God was present—like the castle flag of ancient times that signified that the king was in residence at His royal home. By seeing this sign, we know that God is with us, “Immanuel” is our King, and He will save us and vanquish our enemies!

The symbolism has a vast depth of meaning. Considering that the vertical fish stands like a central “pillar” to point directly to the cloud, it represents those who are “looking up” to the coming of their Lord in the cloud.

And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. (Revelation 11:12)

In the symbolism of this verse, it is emphasized that the ascension of the two witnesses must be connected to a cloud in the heavenly scene—an ascension sign that does not include a cloud would not be valid. This is one more criterion that shows we are looking in the correct place in the heavens, where a cloud sits directly above the middle of the ark of the covenant!

Even the comet in the Horologium clock that shows where we are in the process of Christ’s return also has the far reaches of its orbit within the boundaries of the constellation of Andromeda.

Can you say you have seen the ark of the covenant now? Have you seen the box, the staves, the crown of the mercy seat, the cherubim, and now even the cloud of the glory of God!? But that’s not all; there is still more to see!

The Power of the Ark

The cloud in the constellation of Andromeda signifies that Jesus comes not only in a cloud but also that He comes with a chain—the chain with which Cetus (Leviathan) is to be bound.

To put this in the more vivid context of real life: the World Health Assembly (the decision-making body of the World Health Organization) is currently in session, May 22-28. The outcome of that meeting is slated to be the surrender of the national sovereignty of the 194 nations of the world to the WHO, who will then have power to dictate medical responses to health emergencies. When a new pandemic is declared, such as the spread of monkeypox that is conveniently ramping up in the news while the World Health Assembly is taking place, the authority of the WHO does not end at national boundaries. It is likely that from May 28 on, they will also have the power to tell YOU (no matter what country of the world you live in) that you have to lock down, get vaxxed, or do whatever they say in the name of health. You no longer have the freedom to exercise your own judgment or take your own precautions.

To grasp how unjust this is to the people of God, just think about the fact that many diseases like monkeypox—especially STDs—are the direct or latent result of transgression of God’s law. A Christian who honors God by keeping His commandment “Thou shalt not commit adultery” (or fornication) is at a provably lower or non-existent risk category for many diseases that the world considers a common threat to the general public.

Understand: the law of the land is self-contradictory, because on the one hand it defends unclean behaviors like sodomy, while on the other hand it enforces public health measures against diseases which are the result of sodomy. What is the government’s motive? If it truly had the interests of citizens in mind, more effort would be put into educating people about the dangers of sex outside of wedlock instead of the dangers of not getting vaccinated.

God promised His people good health if they keep His law:

And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee. (Exodus 15:26)

The “Egyptians” in this context represent the atheists, the worldly, those who do not respect or believe in God. Those who do not have or do not keep God’s law will suffer by the very consequence of their disobedience. God is no respecter of persons; He does not say, “I will plague the homosexuals because I don’t like them.” Far be it from Him! To the very contrary, He says, “Don’t do that, because I created you and I love you and I know what will happen to you if you do that!” God’s law is natural law—it does not change, and it is no respecter of persons. If a Christian behaves like a heathen, will he not get the diseases of the heathen? And Paul even says that if a heathen behaves right by following the dictates of a sound conscience, God will not despise.

For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;) (Romans 2:14-15)

And now, when because of the promotion of the LGBT lifestyle sexual liberation and the degradation of the immune system through nature-manipulating vaccines has resulted in intractable diseases among the wider population, if the powers of this world decide your health for you, they are taking away your freedom of conscience to trust and obey God for the promise of good health. Choice is taken away!

This is why Jesus comes with a chain to bind Satan. When he takes away free choice from the world, God will take away free choice from him!

When Jesus leaves the most holy His restraining Spirit is withdrawn from rulers and people. They are left to the control of evil angels. Then such laws will be made by the counsel and direction of Satan that, unless time should be very short, no flesh could be saved.—Testimonies For The Church 1:204 (1859). {LDE 255.1}

In discussing the United States’ intention for the world to give the WHO legal power over all nations, we included in the article Entering Canaan the following words, which were a foreshadowing of the unveiling of the ark that is now being done in this article:

Never did this message apply with greater force than it applies today. More and more the world is setting at nought the claims of God. Men have become bold in transgression. The wickedness of the inhabitants of the world has almost filled up the measure of their iniquity. This earth has almost reached the place where God will permit the destroyer to work his will upon it. The substitution of the laws of men for the law of God, the exaltation, by merely human authority, of [vaccination] in the place of [freedom to conscientiously reject it], is the last act in the drama. When this substitution becomes universal, God will reveal Himself. He will arise in His majesty to shake terribly the earth. He will come out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the world for their iniquity, and the earth shall disclose her blood and shall no more cover her slain. {Adapted from 3TT 142.4}

As we are about to open the lid of the ark of the covenant and see what is inside, you must be forewarned of the power of God.

The Ark in Battle

Popular depictions of the miraculous power of the ark in battle did not come from pure imagination. Secular artists and scriptwriters have a certain amount of respect for and expectation of what God’s power can do through the ark of His covenant. Films such as Raiders of the Lost Ark attempt to show the horror and death that comes to those who handle the ark unworthily.

Not only have we read the historical accounts of what befell those whom God was against, but in the Revelation, John saw the ark in heaven emitting some of the greatest forces then known to man:

And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail. (Revelation 11:19)

If you have never experienced lightning at close range, you can never imagine how much power is contained in a single bolt of lightning, and how life-threatening it is for anyone in its path. Even for one who is not directly struck, the eyes are blinded from the flash and the ears are deafened from the crash—only after moments of mind-whirling thoughts do the senses slowly return—like a disembodied soul in the silent darkness, thoughts race like “Did I die?” “Where am I?”—until the sight and hearing gradually fade back in, faint at first. People who experience lightning have generally the same words: “OH MY GOD!!!” …which is to say, God reveals Himself.

Such is the power that John describes—a power that is on a scale beyond anything a person can rationalize: lightnings, voices, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail. These are the powers that accompany the ark, and the last of those powerful forces marks the end of the world as described in the seventh and final plague:

And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great. (Revelation 16:21)

We are dealing with no ordinary power; it is a power so great that the wicked “blaspheme God” because of it—and it is a power focused on the enemies of God who are the breakers of His law. God is an infinitely intelligent Being wielding infinite power, and there is nobody in existence who can devise an escape from His wrath. The only safety is in His Son, Jesus Christ, who has cleansed us to present us faultless before His throne[3] as His brethren.

Our relationship to the ark is therefore different. As heirs of the promise of God’s covenant and servants of the Lord of hosts, we bear the ark in battle as the weapon of our warfare, against which no one can stand. God goes before us as He went before Israel and fights our enemies.

What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31)

We publish this article as a declaration that God is with us, because no other church or people has in hand what we have. No other church or people has been delivered the covenant of God as we have! We march in faith with the power of God at our side.

The Contents of the Ark

Do you know what is in the ark? Have you seen within the sacred chest? Has the lid been lifted in your sight? Seeing it in vision during the time of the investigative judgment, Ellen G. White described it as follows in accordance with Hebrews 9:4:

In the holiest I saw an ark; on the top and sides of it was purest gold. On each end of the ark was a lovely cherub, with its wings spread out over it. Their faces were turned toward each other, and they looked downward. Between the angels was a golden censer. Above the ark, where the angels stood, was an exceeding bright glory, that appeared like a throne where God dwelt. Jesus stood by the ark, and as the saints’ prayers came up to Him, the incense in the censer would smoke, and He would offer up their prayers with the smoke of the incense to His Father. In the ark was the golden pot of manna, Aaron’s rod that budded, and the tables of stone which folded together like a book. Jesus opened them, and I saw the ten commandments written on them with the finger of God. On one table were four, and on the other six. The four on the first table shone brighter than the other six. But the fourth, the Sabbath commandment, shone above them all; for the Sabbath was set apart to be kept in honor of God’s holy name. The holy Sabbath looked glorious—a halo of glory was all around it. I saw that the Sabbath commandment was not nailed to the cross. If it was, the other nine commandments were; and we are at liberty to break them all, as well as to break the fourth. I saw that God had not changed the Sabbath, for He never changes. But the pope had changed it from the seventh to the first day of the week; for he was to change times and laws. {EW 32.3}

The judgment has since ended, and Jesus has come out of the most holy place. It is only because His intercession has ended that the ark has appeared in the heavens.

And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament… (From Revelation 11:19)

To state it the other way, seeing the ark of the covenant in the heavens is proof that probation has closed for the human race. With probation closed, we can now open the ark and reveal its contents without fear of harm to any soul who might have still been redeemed; only the wicked need fear.

In the ark were three items. However, we are informed by the vision quoted above that the two tables of stone were initially folded together and subsequently opened. In order to see this change in the heavens, the two tables must be represented by two separate actors. Thus, the three items in the ark are actually four distinct objects:

  1. The pot of manna.

  2. Aaron’s rod that budded.

  3. The first table of stone.

  4. The second table of stone.

Looking closely inside the heavenly ark around the time expected for its unveiling, one sees four actors which could readily fill the roles of the four objects housed inside: Venus, the moon, Jupiter, and Mars.

The Contents of the Ark

But which is which? Understanding that the tables of the law are initially folded and subsequently unfolded allows us to identify them in the heavens.

While these words of holy trust ascend to God, the clouds sweep back, and the starry heavens are seen, unspeakably glorious in contrast with the black and angry firmament on either side. The glory of the celestial city streams from the gates ajar. Then there appears against the sky a hand holding two tables of stone folded together. Says the prophet: “The heavens shall declare His righteousness: for God is judge Himself.” Psalm 50:6. That holy law, God’s righteousness, that amid thunder and flame was proclaimed from Sinai as the guide of life, is now revealed to men as the rule of judgment. The hand opens the tables, and there are seen the precepts of the Decalogue, traced as with a pen of fire. The words are so plain that all can read them. Memory is aroused, the darkness of superstition and heresy is swept from every mind, and God’s ten words, brief, comprehensive, and authoritative, are presented to the view of all the inhabitants of the earth. {GC 639.1}

In the surrounding days, there is only one moment when two of these moving objects are “folded together,” and that occurs on the eve of May 27—the resurrection anniversary when the moon occults Venus:

The Folded Tables of Stone

This occultation takes place exactly on the line of the ascension fish, which points to the cloud of the Andromeda galaxy that represents the Shekinah glory of God! These are the tables of the Law of God that are an expression of His character, the breaking of which sets a person in diabolical enmity with God. That is the reason why the wicked cannot stand in the presence of God in all His glory.

In the subsequent hours, these tables of the law are opened as the moon quickly moves to the left. Before it leaves the scene, all four objects—including Mars which was previously outside the “box” outline—are seen in the ark:

The Opened Tables of Stone

On this day—May 28, 2022—the tables of the law are completely opened for all the world to see. There will be no more doubt about the presence of God with His people, because “God will reveal Himself” from then on as the ark and all its constituents become fully visible on the heavenly canvas.

In the great battle between light and darkness, it is those who carry the ark who have the infinite power of God on their side. Who is authorized by God for this work? This is precisely what the rod of Aaron represents. After members of the other tribes challenged the singular authority of the tribe of Levi to officiate in the sacred services of the sanctuary, God declared unequivocally which tribe He had chosen to lead the nation in the priestly service:

And it shall come to pass, that the man’s rod, whom I shall choose, shall blossom: and I will make to cease from me the murmurings of the children of Israel, whereby they murmur against you. (Numbers 17:5)

The Aaronic priesthood who was authorized to carry the ark had its name literally kept inside the ark, written on the rod that miraculously blossomed, budded, and yielded fruit in the presence of the ark of the covenant.

And Moses laid up the rods before the Lord in the tabernacle of witness. And it came to pass, that on the morrow Moses went into the tabernacle of witness; and, behold, the rod of Aaron for the house of Levi was budded, and brought forth buds, and bloomed blossoms, and yielded almonds. (Numbers 17:7-8)

To identify which of the two remaining planets represents the rod of Aaron, all we need to do is zoom in for a closer look and see which heavenly actor could represent the rod that is bearing fruit:

The Fruits of Aaron's Rod

Clearly it is Jupiter, the planet representing the King and Priest after the order of Melchizedek, who has fruits: four easily-recognizable moons that it supports, and thus Jupiter—the king planet—corresponds to the rod of Aaron as a symbol for the power and authority of the high priest and his tribe who was given the priesthood to serve under God in the administration of the Israelite nation.

For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, … made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually. (Hebrews 7:1,3)

This gives added significance to the fact that Jupiter entered the borders of the ark on May 19, 2022. On God’s calendar, that day was the third day of the feast of tabernacles (according to the southern hemisphere). That was the day in 2016 when High Sabbath Adventists prayed for more time, making it possible for the sealing of the 144,000 to be finished. Thus, that day stands as a memorial to the Sacrifice of Philadelphia, when the church yielded its dearest hopes out of Christian love for His missing sheep, which fulfilled the prophecy of delay in Revelation 7:1-3.

Aaron’s rod, which came into the ark on May 19, 2022, in honor of that sacrifice, represents the priesthood that was given to this church, similarly to how Jesus was worthy to open the seals, because of His sacrifice. This is the only church that has the ark of the covenant in its possession and who understands its contents, and now carries the ark with its official powers. We are living in very solemn times.

Lastly, Mars must represent the pot of manna. We can back up to the moment when it crossed the line of comet PanSTARRS and see when this spiritual food from heaven was placed in the ark:

The Pot of Manna

Through the path of the PanSTARRS comet, Mars is connected to the big “pot” of Aquarius from which the manna was taken, representing the spiritual food provided by God the Father from heaven. It was on January 15, 2022, when that comet, representing the millstone of Revelation, was cast into the sea by faith, and Hunga Tonga immediately erupted with mighty thundering that rolled through the earth, declaring the time of the second coming with the voice of God. Although we could have come as far as June 4, 2022, from the initial deciphering of the comet in the Horologium constellation, the copious amount of spiritual food provided from the time of the Hunga Tonga eruption to this day has given us the strength to wage the final war.

God commands His church to “reward Babylon double” for all her atrocities against Him.

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. (Revelation 18:4-8)

On the very day of May 28, 2022, the war planet comes into the ark of God’s covenant. The weapon of His wrath is ready to fire with all four actors inside the ark. This is only the case for a short time until the moon begins to exit the ark at about 1:00 a.m. that night, signifying that God will make a short work of Babylon. “In one day” shall her plagues come.

Thus, the double reward seems to point to the two days from May 26/27 when the tables of the law are first seen folded together and the sign of the completed ark begins, until May 27/28 when Mars has entered, and after which the moon departs. Lightning strikes fast! The beams of divine energy shooting from the ark of God do not need a long time to accomplish their purpose. What will befall the world from this time on?

God’s Death Rays

The heavenly scene does not leave doubt as to who is in the crosshairs of the wrath of God. If the entire heavenly sign is viewed at once, there is a striking “beam” emanating from the ark:

Lightning from the Ark

The ephemeris of the sun along the ecliptic extends much farther to the right than the sign of the ark itself. This extension appears as a ray or bolt of lightning striking through the offenders against God. Along the path of the strike is Capricornus the fish-goat with Saturn representing Satan-Pope Francis who wears the fish hat of Dagon leading the Catholic whore on many waters, and the beam extends all the way into the rear end of Sagittarius with his fallen crown, representing fallen Protestantism which made a pact with the devil.

The saints took the way of the cross as shown in The Golden Ticket, following the Bridegroom toward the left of the heavenly scene, while the apostates turned their back to the cross like Sagittarius.

The Cross in Heaven The whole story is laid out plainly in the heavens for all to see. It is the cross that was perverted by the church of the Old World and despised by the apostate Christians in the New World that now kicks them in the pants.

And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. (Matthew 21:44)

Such is the power of the ark of God—the same power that will lift the redeemed to heaven to the very presence of the One whom they serve, while those left behind will be killed.

These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. (Revelation 17:14)

Revelation describes in symbolic language the instrument with which the Lamb makes war:

And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. (Revelation 19:15)

The sharp sword of the Bridegroom (represented by the sun) is the cross sign. It is the cross of the Word of God who was made flesh. With this weapon He smites the nations, and His rule is symbolized by a rod of iron, which corresponds to the line of the ecliptic stretching from the sun in the upper part of the rod in the constellation of Taurus, until it strikes the nations represented by Capricornus and Sagittarius.

Beginning with the two days of the double reward (from May 26/27 to May 27/28), “Dagon” comes to know the power of the God of Israel. Just as the heavens show the ark of God aside Dagon/Capricornus, so the biblical type foretold it:

When the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the house of Dagon, and set it by Dagon. And when they of Ashdod arose early on the morrow, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the earth before the ark of the Lord. And they took Dagon, and set him in his place again. And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of the Lord; and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off upon the threshold; only the stump of Dagon was left to him. Therefore neither the priests of Dagon, nor any that come into Dagon’s house, tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod unto this day. (1 Samuel 5:2-5)

In two days, Dagon’s hands were amputated and his body decapitated. And what befell the Philistines?

And it was so, that, after they had carried it about, the hand of the Lord was against the city with a very great destruction: and he smote the men of the city, both small and great, and they had emerods [tumors or hemorrhoids] in their secret parts. (1 Samuel 5:9)

They got a painful disease in their “secret parts,” which apparently corresponds to monkeypox today, which is spreading wildly around the news and is a disease that also affects the genitals and is spread through body fluids. It is poetic justice that those who disregard God and prefer to believe they came from monkeys, get the diseases of the monkeys whose behaviors they imitate and glorify.

The two “beasts” of Capricornus and Sagittarius also correspond to the first and second beasts of Revelation 13—Capricornus as the one coming up out of the sea (Europe), led by Satan, where Satan’s seat is, and Sagittarius is that which came up out of the earth (America). The “beam” that strikes these entities is none other than the beam of the cross, which was seen on March 7/8, 2022, on the very night when PanSTARRS crossed the ecliptic.

In The Ark of God, the first “handle” of the ark’s carrying staff drawn by the sun was recognized as beginning on March 8, 2022, in the following illustration:

The Beginning of the Ark Sign

On that day, even just after midnight following March 7, 2022, the sign of the cross was discovered in the heavens in answer to a sincere desire expressed the day before, when on March 7, 2022, Brother John lifted his bo staff and looked up to heaven in a plea for Jesus to COME!

The sun’s position at that time marked the right extremity of the sign of the ark of the covenant, and from that very point shoots the power that destroys Babylon.

The fact that this weapon is described as coming “out of his mouth” could also be suggestive of solar activity, because the sun represents Jesus as the Bridegroom coming out of His chamber, as fittingly expressed in the psalm that speaks of the glory of God (i.e., over the ark of the covenant):

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. (Psalm 19:1-5)

The Bridegroom Appears

The Transformer Sign Recognizing that the Israelites had to march around Jericho 13 times according to the command of the Captain of the host, meaning that the Israelites carried the ark around the city 13 times in total (six times on six days and seven times on the seventh day), we can fine-tune our measurements of the poles.

A living experience with the Lord is essential to the Christian warfare. It so happened that on May 15, as Brother John was taking a walk, the Captain of the host figuratively appeared to him alone on our farm in the form of a rare and grand and beautiful moonrise behind the silhouette of a cross of a power pole with a high-voltage transformer in a highly symbolic and holy setting—a rare possibility where forests dominate the landscape. Later that night, this same rising moon was seen and captured by the world as the great Hunga-Tonga-darkened blood moon of May 15/16, 2022, that forebodes Jericho’s fall. Thus, Jesus as Captain of the host gave the command to begin the marches. The power pole symbolized the drawn sword in the hand (the moon) of the Captain of the host, and indeed the power of Christ is the cross.

On that very day, the sun exited the ark body on the left of the heavenly scene, and there are exactly 13 whole Jewish days from May 15/16 until May 27/28, 2022—the 13 days of the modern “Joshua’s” march before the walls of antitypical Jericho/Babylon should start to crumble on May 28.

The Ark Handles

For symmetry, an equal-length handle on the right side of the picture would stretch from the cross point an equal 13 whole days from March 18/19 backwards in time to March 6/7, 2022, inclusive (and not just to March 7/8). Thus, the sun’s position on the ecliptic on March 6/7 (simplified to March 7) marks the true beginning of the handle in light of Joshua’s marches.

Unbeknown to Brother John as he raised his bo staff up to the sun-lit sky on March 7, 2022, record-breaking photographs of that fire which no man (or craft) can approach unto had been taken that very day by the ESA Solar Orbiter:

The photo was taken on March 7 by the Extreme Ultraviolet Imager (EUI) and is a mosaic of 25 images that were combined together to create a 9,148 x 9112-pixel photo, which is about 83-megapixels, making it the highest resolution photo of the Sun’s full disc and outer atmosphere ever taken. (PetaPixel)

It took some time until the image data had been combined and processed before the news broke and the world was awed by the most amazing photograph of the sun that human beings have ever laid eyes upon. But at that time, nobody discerned what the beautiful image truly signified…

The Bridegroom Comes Out

It wasn’t until May 24, 2022, that a German YouTuber recognized in the image “the sun god”—or what we can recognize as “The Son of God” in that it represents Jesus Christ, who as the Bridegroom is coming out of the “chamber” where the ark of the covenant is located. Do you see His form!? Do you see Jesus’ face literally shining with the light of the sun, arm outstretched, swirling the censer full of glowing coals making a whirlwind of smoke, to hurl it to the earth!? It is so clear, that once you see it, you can’t unsee it.

The photograph of the sun showed what was described by Ezekiel:

And he spake unto the man clothed with linen, and said, Go in between the wheels, even under the cherub, and fill thine hand with coals of fire from between the cherubims, and scatter them over the city. And he went in in my sight. (Ezekiel 10:2)

The scenes that have already played out in the heavens in the context of Ezekiel’s Cross have fulfilled the prophecy up to the point of throwing down the coals:

I saw angels hurrying to and fro in heaven. An angel with a writer’s inkhorn by his side returned from the earth and reported to Jesus that his work was done, and the saints were numbered and sealed. Then I saw Jesus, who had been ministering before the ark containing the ten commandments, throw down the censer. He raised His hands, and with a loud voice said, “It is done.” And all the angelic host laid off their crowns as Jesus made the solemn declaration, “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.” {EW 279.2}

Jesus reigns as King of kings and Lord of lords, and He is coming! This is the point when the saints suddenly saw Jesus, after the “cloud” had drawn nearer. In 2019 they saw the small black cloud in the form of the black hole named POWEHI (i.e., M87*) and now in 2022 the cloud was seen much nearer in the form of Sgr A*—the central black hole of the Milky Way—and now even in our own solar system in this picture of Jesus in the sun:

Soon appeared the great white cloud, upon which sat the Son of man. When it first appeared in the distance, this cloud looked very small. The angel said that it was the sign of the Son of man. As it drew nearer the earth, we could behold the excellent glory and majesty of Jesus as He rode forth to conquer. A retinue of holy angels, with bright, glittering crowns upon their heads, escorted Him on His way. No language can describe the glory of the scene. The living cloud of majesty and unsurpassed glory came still nearer, and we could clearly behold the lovely person of Jesus. He did not wear a crown of thorns, but a crown of glory rested upon His holy brow. Upon His vesture and thigh was a name written, King of kings, and Lord of lords. His countenance was as bright as the noonday sun, His eyes were as a flame of fire, and His feet had the appearance of fine brass. His voice sounded like many musical instruments. The earth trembled before Him, the heavens departed as a scroll when it is rolled together, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. “And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every freeman, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; and said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: for the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” Those who a short time before would have destroyed God’s faithful children from the earth, now witnessed the glory of God which rested upon them. And amid all their terror they heard the voices of the saints in joyful strains, saying, “Lo, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us.” {EW 286.2}

The form of His lovely person was fittingly recognized on the twenty-second day of the Jewish month, which would be the second possibility for Shemini Atzeret in the southern hemisphere: the Last Great Day of the festal year and a day to pray for the coming of the Messiah. He is not now coming to suffer again at the hands of the wicked, but to overrule them in power!

There is no artist in the world whose brush could paint a more majestic portrait of the King of kings, ready to execute judgment upon the wicked. And in common wall calendar terms, what date could be more fitting for this picture to have been recognized on than on May 24, the memorial anniversary of Christ’s agony in Gethsemane in AD 31—when He wrestled and sweat drops of blood in mental anguish, bearing the guilt of the sins of the world, to save all who would accept Him from the fire that is to come.

Look, you saints, the sight is glorious,
See the Man of sorrows now;
From the fight returned victorious,
Every knee to Him shall bow… (SDAH 165)

The “chamber,” which Jesus Christ is coming out of, is the most holy place of the heavenly sanctuary, where He interceded with the blood of Calvary on behalf of sinners.

Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. (Hebrews 4:14)

Now the great antitypical Day of Atonement throughout which Jesus has been working in heaven as our High Priest to reconcile us to God has come to an end, so that Jesus can finally return. This is what the sun’s traversal of the sign of the ark of the covenant represented; it was the closing of that great day taking place in the most holy of the heavenly sanctuary. The final acts of the ceremonies of that day have now played out. Blame for the sins confessed by the saints has already been placed upon the scapegoat (Leviathan) as he has been bound and sealed in the bottomless pit.

Every case had been decided for life or death. While Jesus had been ministering in the sanctuary, the judgment had been going on for the righteous dead, and then for the righteous living. Christ had received His kingdom, having made the atonement for His people and blotted out their sins. The subjects of the kingdom were made up. The marriage of the Lamb was consummated. And the kingdom, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, was given to Jesus and the heirs of salvation, and Jesus was to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords. {EW 280.1}

The Bridegroom has finished in His chamber; reconciliation between God and man is complete! He has consummated the marriage covenant, which was fulfilled with the last spattering of blood, and the holy seed has been elected. Now He comes forth from His chamber to deliver the tokens of the union between Himself and His church, symbolized by the sun’s passing the Golden Gate of the Ecliptic on the very anniversary of the day in which His covenantal blood was shed on behalf of humanity:

Coming Out of the Golden Gate

The ark of the testament has been opened, and the testament in His blood has been delivered; the time has come for the heirs to receive their inheritance.

And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth. (Hebrews 9:15-17)

If the covenant had not been fulfilled, we would not see the heirs (represented by Pisces) sitting on the throne of the ark with Jesus (Aries). Only the Father would be present to oversee the covenant; but now the covenant has been fulfilled and the testament delivered—the clear title to the heavenly inheritance.

At this time, the sun’s presence in Taurus signifies that Jesus Christ is the Aleph, the first of the Hebrew alephbet, as well as the last, Tav.

And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. (Revelation 22:12-15)

When the line is drawn between the kingdom of God and the world, you might not see a visible difference between who is on one side or the other, but there is a difference. It is a difference of character, and those who “do His commandments” (who have been purified by the blood of Jesus) will have the right to live forever, while the others whose characters are corrupt will be left to their own devices.

And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. (Revelation 8:5)

When the sun comes out of his chamber and Jesus has left the most holy, then probation has forever closed, and the righteous and wicked have been separated, each for his respective reward. This is when, after the wicked have filled up the cup of God’s wrath, His indignation burns like the sun.

And I myself will fight against you with an outstretched hand and with a strong arm, even in anger, and in fury, and in great wrath. (Jeremiah 21:5)

The Victory of the Ark

Now the full cup of the seven last plagues is poured out without mixture:

As Jesus moved out of the most holy place, I heard the tinkling of the bells upon His garment; and as He left, a cloud of darkness covered the inhabitants of the earth. There was then no mediator between guilty man and an offended God. While Jesus had been standing between God and guilty man, a restraint was upon the people; but when He stepped out from between man and the Father, the restraint was removed and Satan had entire control of the finally impenitent. It was impossible for the plagues to be poured out while Jesus officiated in the sanctuary; but as His work there is finished, and His intercession closes, there is nothing to stay the wrath of God, and it breaks with fury upon the shelterless head of the guilty sinner, who has slighted salvation and hated reproof. In that fearful time, after the close of Jesus’ mediation, the saints were living in the sight of a holy God without an intercessor. Every case was decided, every jewel numbered. Jesus tarried a moment in the outer apartment of the heavenly sanctuary, and the sins which had been confessed while He was in the most holy place were placed upon Satan, the originator of sin, who must suffer their punishment.

Then I saw Jesus lay off His priestly attire and clothe Himself with His most kingly robes. Upon His head were many crowns, a crown within a crown. Surrounded by the angelic host, He left heaven. The plagues were falling upon the inhabitants of the earth. Some were denouncing God and cursing Him. Others rushed to the people of God and begged to be taught how they might escape His judgments. But the saints had nothing for them. The last tear for sinners had been shed, the last agonizing prayer offered, the last burden borne, the last warning given. The sweet voice of mercy was no more to invite them. When the saints, and all heaven, were interested for their salvation, they had no interest for themselves. Life and death had been set before them. Many desired life, but made no effort to obtain it. They did not choose life, and now there was no atoning blood to cleanse the guilty, no compassionate Saviour to plead for them, and cry, “Spare, spare the sinner a little longer.” All heaven had united with Jesus, as they heard the fearful words, “It is done. It is finished.” The plan of salvation had been accomplished, but few had chosen to accept it. And as mercy’s sweet voice died away, fear and horror seized the wicked. With terrible distinctness they heard the words, “Too late! Too late!” {EW 280.2-281.1}

In another account, Ellen G. White explains that “a number of days” transpired after Jesus took up His power:

And I saw Jesus rise up in the Holiest, and as he came out we heard the tinkling of bells, and knew our High Priest was coming out. Then we heard the voice of God which shook the heavens and earth, and gave the 144,000 the day and hour of Jesus’ coming. Then the saints were free, united and full of the glory of God, for he had turned their captivity. And I saw a flaming cloud come where Jesus stood and he laid off his priestly garment and put on his kingly robe, took his place on the cloud which carried him to the east where it first appeared to the saints on earth, a small black cloud, which was the sign of the Son of Man. While the cloud was passing from the Holiest to the east which took a number of days, the Synagogue of Satan worshiped at the saints feet. {DS March 14, 1846, par. 2}

This would indicate the time that still remains for the saints on the earth. You whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life need not fear. God is with you! He knows your name—your identity, your DNA! You are a child of the reigning King of kings:

And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. (Revelation 11:15-17)

To you is granted the victory over the wicked:

And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. (Revelation 11:18)

Your power is in Immanuel—God with us. With the ark of the covenant now visible, God reveals Himself; the power and glory of the ark is here!

And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail. (Revelation 11:19)

The seventh trumpet signals that the time has come for God’s wrath to fall upon the wicked. This war is transpiring in heaven and on earth, as described in Revelation 19:

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war…. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. (Revelation 19:11,14)

Portrayed in the heavens are both sides of the battle: On the left side of the heavenly stage is the Bridegroom in the constellation of Taurus with His army carrying the ark, while on the right side of the stage is Satan (Saturn) with his armies of Capricornus and Sagittarius.

From the beginning the great controversy in heaven has been driven by Satan’s desire to usurp Christ’s authority. He was once a covering cherub and still grasps the position in his quest of self-exaltation. This is shown by Saturn’s approach until being stopped in his tracks and sent retrograde on June 4, 2022, when the pendulum of the Horologium swings to the other side. If time would last and Christ would not defeat him in the battle, Satan would regroup and advance again to the constellation of Aquarius to retake the position of the covering cherub by February 13, 2023. This is what the heavens show, therefore time is of the essence , and God saw fit to bind him for the thousand years before that could happen.

Meanwhile, on the other side in the constellation of Taurus, another planet turned retrograde around May 10 and started to move toward the ark: Mercury. It did not touch it like Uzzah, but it came near before returning to prograde motion very near June 4, 2022, thus symbolizing the replacement for Satan (represented by Saturn) who was refused as a covering cherub. In this context, Mercury could symbolize the leader of the HSA society as the one who first offered his eternal life to God to know the truth and bring it to others, thus demonstrating a character that would qualify him for the role of an “ark” angel—unlike Satan who did the opposite by casting doubt on the character of God and fighting for supremacy. This heavenly drama takes place in Taurus, signifying the sacrificial character trait.

Now it is clear why in the Bible verse above, Jesus is followed by the heavenly armies. Every follower of Christ is called to the last great battle against the powers of darkness, and it is a battle that requires sacrifice because Satan’s goal is not actually to win but to prevent Christ from winning. He knows he is a loser, a created being who cannot ever live as god without God; therefore, he is the god of the dead. His only goal is to destroy and bring death to the kingdom of God out of pure hate, not because of any advantage for himself.

For that reason, to win against him, the soldiers of Christ must also be self-denying and work against him with the same fervor without care for self-advantage but in love to strengthen and defend God’s kingdom with constant vigilance. They must not “touch the ark” by changing the truth of God into a lie, but defend the doctrines received by divine inspiration.

Although Mercury plays his role on the left side of the heavenly ark, he conceptually belongs opposite the sun, since the two covering cherubim are on opposite sides of the mercy seat by definition. To symbolize this, God orchestrated that another heavenly body would enter the boundaries of the constellation of Aquarius at the same time the sun entered Taurus on May 14, 2022 (within two hours!): Vesta.

Vesta is the brightest asteroid visible from Earth, sometimes visible even with the naked eye. It is the only known remaining rocky protoplanet of the kind that formed the terrestrial planets, and it is known to have experienced a huge impact that resulted in numerous fragments, many of which have struck the earth. As such, Vesta signifies the final punishment upon mankind:

And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great. (Revelation 16:21)

The fact that this asteroid has entered the constellation of the cherub signifies that the ark of the covenant is now armed and dangerous, ready for military action as soon as the incoming covering cherub represented by Mercury has reached his position at the ark of God.

The beauty of God’s creation—both the natural and the prophetic—is indescribable. Everything works together as one harmonious unit! This is the wondrous grandeur upon which the New Earth will be built. The revelations of the mysteries of God will only grow as the purpose of the ark of the covenant is fulfilled and God Himself dwells with men!

And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 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. (Revelation 21:3-5)

As everything is extinguished that would defile or otherwise mar the joy of life in God’s Kingdom, the Creator makes all things new.

And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. (Revelation 21:22)

Then the purpose of the ark of the covenant will have been fulfilled and it will be placed into a very holy place of the Universal Memorial.

The work of redemption will be complete. In the place where sin abounded, God’s grace much more abounds. The earth itself, the very field that Satan claims as his, is to be not only ransomed but exalted. Our little world, under the curse of sin the one dark blot in His glorious creation, will be honored above all other worlds in the universe of God. Here, where the Son of God tabernacled in humanity; where the King of glory lived and suffered and died,—here, when He shall make all things new, the tabernacle of God shall be with men, “and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God.” And through endless ages as the redeemed walk in the light of the Lord, they will praise Him for His unspeakable Gift—Immanuel, “God with us.” {DA 26.3}
