The True Story of the Two Witnesses


IMPORTANT Attention: 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).

You are about to embark upon a tour of the recent history of the two witnesses of Revelation. Many recognize the prophesying of the two witnesses as a key event in the eschatological framework of the book of Revelation. Many still await their appearance; many still aspire to be them. But what you are about to read is now history—a history that has fulfilled the prophecy of Revelation to completion.

The Bible prophecy that forms the backbone of this story begins in chapter 10 of the Revelation and continues to the end of chapter 11, from the first mention of the seventh trumpet to its last. This article will take the reader one verse at a time through the experience of the two witnesses to expound the meaning and identify the fulfillment of every event. One could say that because this is the seventh trumpet, and seven is the number of completion, that this fulfillment represents the finishing of all the warnings of the book of Revelation.

The time of the sounding of the seventh trumpet is indicated in heaven by Venus coming out of the bell of the heavenly trumpet on June 17, 2022. This sign was introduced in prior articles, beginning with Final Observations; it is part of the larger sign of the ark of the testament that will be described again shortly.

The seventh trumpet sounds

In the book of Revelation, the seventh trumpet is first mentioned in chapter 10 in connection with finishing the mystery of God.

But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets. (Revelation 10:7)

Since the fall of Adam, God has been in search of mankind, and mankind has yearned—knowingly or not—for God. Communion with divinity was lost due to man’s sin, yet God promised that a Way would be found to restore man’s privilege of communing with his Maker and Father. Therefore, people throughout the millennia of earth’s history held that promise dear, recognized the Way in the Person of Jesus Christ, and have sought the completion of the mystery of God ever since.

This mystery is the same mystery that was penetrated anew by the Millerites during the great awakening of the 1840s. William Miller had calculated the end of several (long) time prophecies in the Bible, most notably the 2300 days of Daniel 8:14, which came to the year 1843 according to his rough calculations, later corrected to 1844. Thus, perhaps without deliberately realizing what he was doing, he fulfilled the words of Scripture:

And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth. And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. (Revelation 10:8-9)

The apostle John, in that scene, stands for William Miller who performed the studies that were prophesied in the vision. William Miller took the little book (of that vision of Daniel 8) and ate it. He understood it. He deciphered its meaning and became convinced that the time was at hand for the judgment of the world by fire.

Although Miller himself was cautious about setting a hard date, another by the name of Samuel Snow built upon his work and calculated what the exact date would be, according to the biblical calendar, based on the logic that Judgment Day should correspond to the Day of Atonement. He found through careful investigation that according to the biblical calendar, the day in question would be October 22, 1844. This indeed marked not only the Day of Atonement for that year, but also the beginning of the great antitypical Day of Atonement that would span more than a century and a half—although nobody knew it at that time. The Millerites simply believed Jesus would return, because in the framework of their understanding, Judgment Day and the return of Jesus were synonymous.

And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. (Revelation 10:10)

But the great expectation of Jesus’ return became the great disappointment, just as the “book” that Miller had eaten changed from being sweet in the mouth—sweet to speak about—to something bitter in the stomach, or “bitter to stomach .”

What was bitter about Miller’s message? The prophecy itself explains:

And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings. (Revelation 10:11)

William Miller didn’t live to fulfill that injunction. But he had a dream about the jewels in God’s word that would all be put in order in due course. However, he found them put in order only after he closed his eyes momentarily and reopened them in the dream—a symbol for sleep in death, indicating that he would not continue alive to see the final arrangement of the beautiful treasures of God’s word that he had labored for. Someone else—a second “Miller”—would fill his shoes, and the latter would be the one to see the treasures arranged in their full glory. Thus, the verse above is the command to the “second Miller” to “prophesy again” and finish the work.

The Man Given the Measuring Reed

Who would this second “Miller” be? Crossing into the next chapter, we find his job description:

And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. (Revelation 11:1)

At this point, the apostle John no longer represents William Miller, but the “second Miller” who would come later to take the measuring reed and measure the temple therewith. One can read more about this topic in the interpretation of William Miller’s dream, or, more directly beneficial to the current topic, in the article Thou must prophesy again…, where personal details are included as well as the explanation of how it all started with the measuring reed that was given to Brother John Scotram. Or, perhaps it would be more literally accurate to say, he was given the understanding of what a particular reed in Bible prophecy meant: the reed with which the Holy City was measured, as it says in Revelation 21:17.

And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. (Revelation 21:17)

One should definitely read the last article mentioned above to understand the story in its complete light, but one thing is already perhaps striking: in our recent articles like Behold the Power of God, we have been dealing with a “staff” or “rod” again, which could be compared to the measuring reed. The rod of the ark is also one which belongs to the temple, particularly to the most holy place, and as the study of the ark has developed, the carrying rod has taken on different lengths—that is to say, there was a certain amount of “measuring” involved to reach various dimensions in time. The relationship between the measuring reed that is given to the apostle John at the beginning of Revelation 11 and the ark of the testament, which is seen in the end of the chapter, suggests that this chapter is written in a chiastic form:

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 ark in heaven spans from January 15 to July 17, 2022, and consists of the ephemerides of the sun and the comet C/2021 O3 PanSTARRS, and its body is flanked by the two “cherubim” of Taurus and Aquarius.

The ark of the covenant in heaven

In recognition of this sign, the first verse of chapter 11 takes on new meaning. The angel who says to measure the temple with the reed can be understood as Orion, who reaches up to the Mazzaroth where the carrying rod of the ark is traced by the sun. He is the one who, according to the verse, commanded measurements to be made. This literally came to pass in 2004 when Brother John “heard the command” as he studied together with the Holy Spirit and was led to his first breakthrough on the subject of the man with the measuring reed as contained in the article Thou must prophesy again…

In that study, the Lord led him to “measure the wall of the city,” which eventually resulted in a biblical formula for calculating the time needed to cleanse the church. This was the beginning of the cherished answer to the question few dared to ask after the great disappointment of 1844, when the faithful few discovered that the cleansing of the sanctuary was not a one-day affair: how long would it take to cleanse the church?

Continuing the work

The study resulted in the discovery of a time period of 7 × 24 = 168 years, counted from the beginning of the cleansing of the sanctuary in 1844, and thus came to the year 2012—indeed a pivotal year in the experience of the church and the world. In this way, Brother John took the first step forward since 1844, in solving the line of prophecy that William Miller had started so long ago:

And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed. (Daniel 8:14)

What exactly did the cleansing of the sanctuary entail? Seventh-day Adventists have long understood that the cleansing of the sanctuary (as typified by the ancient services of the Day of Atonement) signified the purification of the church from sin. As every Israelite stood in fear before God on the Day of Atonement, hoping and trusting that every sin had been confessed and forgiven and cleansed away by the high priest’s intercession in all the ways that the ancient ceremony signified, so Adventists have understood that the cleansing in the antitypical sense has always been about cleansing the soul from sin. This job was to be carried to completion so that the 144,000 might stand blameless before God for His vindication. And this is exactly the task given to John in the Revelation:

And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. (Revelation 11:1)

The temple, the altar, and the worshipers are all symbolized by constellations that are connected to the temple in heaven (Taurus, Orion, Aries, Gemini) and are all present with the ark, spanning half of the length of its carrying rod. It is amazing that one can identify in the heavenly temple the very things that were specified to be measured: the temple area consists of Taurus (the altar) and Orion (the enclosed holy places). The worshipers—the people who stand outside the temple—are represented by Gemini. But this is only the beginning; as the story of the two witnesses unfolds, the picture will fill in completely.

The implication of seeing these symbols in the sign of the ark is that the measuring rod (as the carrying rod of the ark) has now extended all the way not only through Taurus, not only to the galactic equator where Orion’s hand reaches up, but even to the worshipers! This means that the command to measure the people has been completely fulfilled. With the revelation of the ark of the testament in heaven, God shows that the task has been completed, which the angel had commanded to be done.

But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. (Revelation 11:2)

In verse 2, another part is mentioned which is not to be measured: the court, which is given to the Gentiles to be trampled. In the heavenly ark scene, the Gentiles (or pagans) are represented especially by Capricornus, the pagan (and papal) fish-goat sun god. This is very near the beginning of the ark’s rod, but the rod extends a little into Sagittarius as well, which would be a fitting constellation that could “trample” effectively, as the verse indicates. The constellation of Sagittarius represents apostate Protestantism with its fallen crown.

In the experience of the “second Miller,” the ones who trampled underfoot the study of the man with the measuring reed were the Seventh-day Adventists. They are the ones to whom Brother John preached, but who thoroughly rejected the message. That rejected study of 2004 later formed the basis for the Vessel of Time, also known as The Gene of Life, which provided a wealth of insight that ultimately protected God’s people against the COVID-19 vaccine! It was also the seed for the entire book entitled The Mystery of the Holy City, which is filled from cover to cover with beauty, science, and spirituality. Since the study of the measuring reed in 2004, its rejecters have more than proved themselves to be pagan “Gentiles” by aligning themselves with the Catholic Church as it is this day, who is represented by the fish-goat, Capricornus.

Thus, with the rod extending partially into Sagittarius, God is saying with His Word in combination with the heavens that this part of Sagittarius (the rear end[1] of Protestantism) has devolved to the level of paganism. They are no longer spiritual “Jews” (i.e., Christians) but have since been spewed out of the mouth of God. It did not happen immediately—like for the Jews in the time of Christ, time was allowed for repentance.

The measuring reed study

So, for forty-two months, or three and a half years, the message of the measuring reed (which had been preached only to Seventh-day Adventists at that time) was trampled underfoot. Counting forty-two months, or equivalently three and a half years, brings us from late 2004 to 2008.

The Man Over the River

After the forty-two months, the focus of the prophecy changes from the apostle John to the two witnesses. This was also reflected in the real-life story, when in 2008 the next study came to Brother John—a study involving “two witnesses,” albeit different ones. It was the study of the two men on either side of the river in Daniel 12, who were witnesses to the oath of the man over the river:

Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river. And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders? And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished. (Daniel 12:5-7)

The results of Brother John’s study of these verses corroborated the timeframe he had found in the study of the measuring reed: the periods were to conclude in 2012.

The study of the man over the river

In this way, the story of Revelation chapter 11 that started with one man with a measuring reed now transitions to the full picture of the two witnesses, one on either side of the bank of the river; the story now deals with two churches and no longer just one man. With that 2008 study of Daniel 12:7 (which is included in the Orion presentation), the beginning of the prophesying of the two witnesses for 1260 days is thus marked:

And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. (Revelation 11:3)

It was in this timeframe that the studies of 2004 and 2008 both contributed to the discovery of the Orion message. The equation of 7 × 24 = 168 years for the cleansing of the temple and the equivalent form of 7 × 12 + 7 × 12 = 168 years depicted by the oath of the man of the river both signified the duration of the judgment of the dead, which would define the duration of the judgment cycle of the Orion clock, as explained in the presentation that was published in 2010 and in the Clock of God articles.

As those 1260 days were ending and 2012 was approaching, some believing individuals relocated to Brother John’s farm to assist in the work. The article series entitled Final Warning describes how a new phase of ministry began in the spring of 2012. This point is like the river that separates the two witnesses in Daniel 12:5-7, with 1260 days before the spring of 2012 and 1260 days after the spring of 2012. One thousand two hundred and sixty days were allocated to each of the two witnesses.

The prophecy timeframes of the two witnesses

The ministry thus “prophesied” as such until the second set of 1260 days were completed in the autumn of 2015. This was still a time of prophesying “in sackcloth,” meaning preaching repentance, warning of the spiritual dangers, urging people to turn to the Lord in heaven—but generally the prophesying of the two witnesses went unheeded.

From his first study in 2004, Brother John unwittingly followed Jesus’ counsel step-by-step in dealing with his brethren who had rejected the divine message.

Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee [or against God], go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man [Strong’s: a Gentile] and a publican. (Matthew 18:15-17)

In the early years, he dealt privately with his brethren in the church, seeking reconciliation. But finding none, he published his studies online in early 2010, when “one or two others” joined him in seeking the reconciliation of the Adventist Church, who still resisted. Then the audience shifted to the greater body of Christ’s church across all Protestant denominations. Though they may not have as much light or as pure of doctrine, God does not despise the humble. Many of them have looked up and received treasures of wisdom from the heavens as a testimony against the proud Laodicean (Adventist) church. And so, the two witnesses preached in the highways and byways.

These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. (Revelation 11:4)

As other biblical symbols in this chapter have corresponded to the imagery in the heavenly ark of the testament, so it is again. The “God of the earth” is an expression that is inherently ambiguous to anyone who looks around the world and asks himself whether it is God or Satan who reigns. The corresponding symbol in the heavens is Aquarius, which on the one hand represents the LGBT god, while on the other hand it represents God the Father, from whom flows the water of life. Even in the ambiguity, the symbolism is a perfect match.

Standing before the God of the earth In front of Aquarius—that is to say, standing before the God of the earth—are two candlesticks or churches, namely Smyrna and Philadelphia. These are the two churches that Jesus had no reproach against and thus their light is still shining. They are represented by the two fish of the constellation Pisces—the standing fish being the church of Philadelphia that does not taste death, and the resting fish being the church of Smyrna that is comprised of those who were faithful unto death. These are also the two olive trees, providing the oil with which the lamps burn to produce their light.

And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. (Revelation 11:5-6)

In these verses, the symbolism of Elijah is clearly brought to view. His greatest miracles against his unbelieving people—calling fire from heaven to burn up his enemies twice dispatched from the king of Israel[2] and stopping the rain for three and a half years[3]—are mentioned here and attributed to the two witnesses. The leaders of the Adventist church, to whom Brother John went, first privately (2008-2012), then again with witnesses (2012-2015), are like the companies of fifty condemned to the fire that God will bring from heaven. At the same time, as God put it in the hands of Elijah to hold back the rain, so also the latter rain was withheld until the two witnesses shook the heavens after those days of their prophecy.

And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the Lord God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word. (1 Kings 17:1)

Nevertheless, the mention of “turning water to blood and smiting the earth with all plagues as often as they will” is a reference to the type of work they would do and the nature of the warnings they would give in the time of their prophesying. These very things were done. The example of turning water to blood is recorded in the video Signs of the Second Trumpet, and the plagues “as often as they will” were doled out in the Orion clock cycles (of 2015-2016[4] and again later from 2018-2021[5]).

The Beast Overcomes Them

From the perspective of the two witnesses, however, things were not ideal, as one could imagine for prophets who are prophesying in sackcloth. Their message had gone unheeded—especially among the leaders of their own church. The General Conference Session of the Seventh-day Adventist Church was held in 2015 with the most prominent agenda item being the question of women’s ordination. (Other churches had similar meetings.) The church leaders pulled a dirty trick to leverage the emotions of the people in such a way as to cause them to vote in favor of a craftily worded statement that betrayed God, the Bible, and the principles of Christian marriage as established in Eden. The voters inadvertently assented to putting human authority above the Word of God.

This was the last straw. Those followers of the Orion message whose membership in the Seventh-day Adventist Church had not already been denied or rescinded because of their faith now had a conscientious duty to voluntarily resign their membership as their last available means of protesting against the church’s course and testifying for the veracity of God’s Word. The highest decision-making body of the church had finally rejected the truth, and there had to be consequences.

As the light and life of men was rejected by the ecclesiastical authorities in the days of Christ, so it has been rejected in every succeeding generation. Again and again the history of Christ’s withdrawal from Judea has been repeated. When the Reformers preached the word of God, they had no thought of separating themselves from the established church; but the religious leaders would not tolerate the light, and those that bore it were forced to seek another class, who were longing for the truth. In our day few of the professed followers of the Reformers are actuated by their spirit. Few are listening for the voice of God, and ready to accept truth in whatever guise it may be presented. Often those who follow in the steps of the Reformers are forced to turn away from the churches they love, in order to declare the plain teaching of the word of God. And many times those who are seeking for light are by the same teaching obliged to leave the church of their fathers, that they may render obedience. {DA 232.2}

Not only had the message of the two witnesses gone unheeded, but Babylon was making great strides. On June 26, 2015—just before the church’s treacherous vote on July 8—the US Supreme Court ushered in an era of legal protection and benefits for sodomite “marriages.” It seemed as if fire and brimstone was entirely warranted. Just three months later, the pope happily stepped foot on that corrupted US soil amid the World Meeting of Families to celebrate the new definition of sodomite “marriage” in the city of “brotherly love.” Truth is indeed stranger than fiction!

That is when it happened: he addressed the joint session of the US Congress and the United Nations General Assembly as of the Day of Atonement, September 24/25, 2015. The whore had mounted the beast![6]

One month later, the first Orion plague cycle that began on October 25, 2015, was expected to commence with great destruction, and indeed it was warranted. As the date approached, it seemed as if the threatening hurricane Patricia was moving to commence such destruction on the very date prophesied. The hurricane was aiming for the LGBT hotbed of Guadalajara, Mexico—which would have been a highly symbolic target after the US had just passed same-sex marriage protections that year. But instead, it burst into the tears of God. The ministry of the two witnesses experienced a great disappointment. They were “overcome by the beast,” in the sense that their prophecy apparently did not come to pass, and the beast power continued to thrive.

And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. (Revelation 11:7)

In the ark of the testament in heaven, the beast from the bottomless pit is symbolized by the constellation of Cetus. So far, every actor in the chapter has been represented in the sign of the ark, and when the ark is seen at the end of the chapter, they will all have been identified.

And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. (Revelation 11:8)

The dead bodies of the two witnesses are still symbolized by Pisces, which lie along the “street” of the ecliptic—the same street where the twofold “Sodom and Egypt” are located.

The cross is planted in Sodom and Egypt

This twofold city is called Sodom and Egypt; Capricorn has the attributes of a fish and corresponds to Egypt, whose fish god Dagon is worshiped by the Catholic Church in part through the symbolism of the iconic miter. Sodom is graphically represented by the penetrated rear of Sagittarius, the constellation that symbolizes apostate Protestantism and the US, as the leading Protestant nation, where the sodomy law was enacted in 2015—a fitting place for the rod of God to begin.

The cross—“where also our Lord was crucified”—was observed as one of the first great discoveries within the ark of the covenant sign, formed by the ephemerides of comet PanSTARRS and the sun. Above the cross is Aries, representing the sacrificial Lamb’s sign with the writing “King of the Jews.”

The identification of the Lamb in the writing above the cross

And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. (Revelation 11:9)

We have explained the various aspects of these verses many times in our articles about the two witnesses over the years,[7] so we will not elaborate again except to trace the time period of three and a half days. This death is figurative; although in the past there were times the websites of the two witnesses were closed for three and a half days, in reality, they were never closed for a long time and have otherwise always been online and available, and neither were they ever shut down by any “hate speech” restrictions. So, the three and a half days do not refer to such instances.

Here, a change takes place from literal time to prophetic time. The 42 months that were given to the Gentiles were a literal time period; it cannot be otherwise, because no “second Miller” would ever have been able to live 42 × 30 days = 1260 years to fulfill the text in prophetic time. Interestingly the prophecy was given in months because Brother John can only remember the month in which he received the study of 2004 but not the exact day anymore.

Then the two witnesses were given literal timeframes of 1260 days—again, similar logic applies: these must be literal days. However, with their “death,” so dies the literal interpretation of time. The three and a half days are thus to be interpreted in prophetic time, as three and a half years. For the “dead,” time passes differently than for the living—like someone who sleeps and has dreams that cover a pretty long storyline, yet when the dreamer awakes, he recognizes that only moments or at most a few hours have passed.

Sodom and Egypt (where the two witnesses were killed) represent the two great fallen churches. In this “great city” (Babylon) is said to be found the blood of the prophets,[8] who prophesied according to prophetic time. In other words, when the beast overcomes the two witnesses and kills them, he kills the manner of their prophesying, which, in the case of the two witnesses, means he kills their literal time prophesying, which again means that the prophetic periods after their death should no longer be interpreted as literal time, but (again) according to prophetic time. Since the two witnesses were “killed” in 2015, their blood cries out in prophetic time after that (since the witnesses were no longer living).

Dead On the Street

This timeframe of three and a half days/years brings us forward from the deflating outcome of the plagues of 2015/2016 to the spring of 2019. It was during this timeframe that the heavenly signs were discovered in the Mazzaroth. The Mazzaroth follows a yearly cycle and thus also adds weight to the fact that the three and a half days are to be interpreted as years. At the end of that period in the spring of 2019 was another expected event that didn’t take place: the rapture of the two witnesses. All the signs seemed to be right on time as the plague cycle had come to completion, but—simply put—Jesus didn’t come. There was still another three and a half days/years to follow, during which the two witnesses were to lay dead.

And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. (Revelation 11:10)

It is at this point in the prophecy that the chiastic nature of the chapter becomes crucially important. The way in which the measuring reed in the first verse was reflected in the carrying rod(s) of the ark in the last verse indicated that we are dealing with a chiasm, but the key point in a chiasm is the “crossing” (from whence the word “chiasm” comes). The two verses (9 and 11) that mention three and a half days form a sandwich around verse 10 (above), pointing to it as the chiastic crossing.

This is a great finding and represents a key aspect of the prophecy that, when solved, will confirm the veracity of the interpretation that is being set in order in this article.

And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. (Revelation 11:11)

Without understanding the crossing, one would continue with verse 11 by counting another three and a half years from the spring of 2019 and arrive somewhere in the autumn of 2022—which would be bad news in light of all that God has shown during the past months and through the sign of the ark of the testament. Understanding that a chiastic crossover exists between these verses, however, means that there must be an overlap between the end of the first three and a half years and the beginning of the new three and a half years, because such an overlap is what constitutes the center of the chiasm.

Chiasm of three and a half

This overlap is qualitatively corroborated by the fact that the two fish of Pisces, which are connected by a cord, also overlap when they lay dead together:

Overlapping fish

Understanding the chiastic crossing allows us to overlap the three and a half years just enough to come to an end at the right time in 2022, and not to extend into the autumn.

What is “the right time” at which the period should end in 2022? As the two dead witnesses are symbolized by the two fish of Pisces, the spirit of life from God entering them is clearly depicted: it is the movement of comet PanSTARRS from Aquarius (representing God) into Pisces; it was the voice of God from Hunga Tonga that breathed life into them, as attested by the copious studies that followed.

The movement of the comet into Pisces took place on February 1, 2022, so this would be the endpoint of the three and a half years of verse 11.

The Spirit of life from God enters them

Austria’s parliament voted to introduce a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for adults effective on that day, as the proverbial millstone was cast into the (European) “sea” of Pisces. More to the topic of the two witnesses, however, is the fact that calculating back the three and a half years brings us to a fitting date: August of 2018. To do this calculation carefully using exact prophetic years of 360 days each, we must subtract 1260 days from February 1, 2022, which comes exactly to August 21, 2018. We shared much about the great and marvelous sign of the seven last plagues,[9] when we discovered that on the very date of the beginning of the Orion plagues cycle on August 20, 2018, all seven planets were in a row, each in neighboring constellations.

The great and marvelous sign of the seven last plagues

The sign persisted in this configuration until the moon left the constellation of Ophiuchus the next day on August 21, 2018.

The great and marvelous sign of the seven last plagues

As a marker for the “death” of the two witnesses, this couldn’t have been a better fit. The significance of that great and marvelous sign was so impressive,[10] yet even the child sex abuse scandal that racked the Catholic Church and elicited a letter of apology from Pope Francis on the very day of the sign was still not enough to wake the sleeping virgins. And the nations still did not withdraw their loyalty from the papacy, nor did the churches, even seeing its hypocrisy and the gravity of her sin. So, the two witnesses continued to lay dead on the street those three and a half years till the spirit of life entered them on February 1, 2022.

Seeing how exact the calculation is, we could even calculate back from the non-rapture of spring 2019, when the three and a half “days” of the other witness ended, to find out exactly when in 2015 the first period began. This was already calculated at that time, as recorded in The Two Witnesses, albeit with a different meaning in mind for the 1260 days:

…That timeframe is detailed extensively in the books, which show with prophetic events and signs and wonders and the Word of God that their 1260-day period ends on April 5/6, 2019...

Counting back, the beginning of those 1260 days was October 24, 2015, the second possibility for Yom Kippur and the kick-off to the first plague cycle of the Orion clock—which turned into the tears of God. Isn’t it astounding that when calculated, both periods start exactly when the plagues were prophesied by the “two witnesses” to be poured out!? Both timeframes similarly run from a plague beginning date to a breath of the “Spirit of life” in some form, whether April 6, 2019, for one witness or February 1, 2022, for the other.

The timeline of the two witnesses

It is now trivial to understand why those who dwell on the earth rejoiced, made merry, and gave gifts upon the death of the two witnesses. They were happy that the plagues did not take place; the torment that had been caused by the prophecies of the two witnesses did not materialize. Especially in the coronavirus years, these “gifts” took the form of stimulus money and large sums of coronavirus relief benefits. This is how Pope Francis took the wealth of all dollar holders and redistributed it to companies that “met the criteria” to receive the benefits.

Fear Fell on Their Enemies

And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. (Revelation 11:11)

In February of 2022, however, indeed “great fear” fell upon people everywhere. Russia alarmed the world by invading Ukraine, while at the same time the fear of a financial crisis deepened. And because the two witnesses stood on their feet, the prophetic declaration was revived that said their enemies should be killed by the fire from their mouth.[11] This is what the sign of the ark of the testament forebodes and what the world can now expect, as signified in the previous article and repeatedly confirmed with signs!

The next verse in the prophecy speaks of what has been understood as the rapture:

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)

The comet, which entered Pisces as the spirit of life from God to raise the two witnesses to their feet, is also a cloud by virtue of its coma—the cloud in which the two witnesses ascend. The comet’s trajectory illustrated this by going down through the underworld of Cetus—the place of the dead—and then rising again through the constellations of Aries and Taurus, and up to the chariot of Elijah (Ursa Minor). From there it ultimately arrives in Boötes, which represents the Good Shepherd whose voice called them to “Come up hither.” The heavenly Herdsman is shown calling the flock to their final pasture. The sheep (symbolized by Aries) heard the voice of their Herdsman and followed, as shown by the comet’s path.

The trajectory of comet C/2021 O3 PanSTARRS during the sign of the ark of the covenant

Comet PanSTARRS thus traces the whole course of the resurrection and ascension of the two witnesses within the timeframe of the sign of the ark, which also corroborates the overlap of the three and a half days at the center of the chiasm (being that the ark does not extend till autumn).

And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. (Revelation 11:13)

It was previously recognized that the invasion of Ukraine constituted a political earthquake, that Russia was the one out of ten Jesuit partitions of the new world order that fell away and defected from Babylon (as evidenced by the financial exclusion), and that seven thousand Russian soldiers were killed in the first month of the war.

In this context, we—the High Sabbath Adventists who believed this message—were the remnant of the verse who feared God and gave Him glory as the ark of the testament appeared in heaven. Sign after sign, light upon light gave us reason to praise the God of heaven who created and orchestrated all that we see when we look up to the skies. There was the cross, the sign of the Hebrew letter tav, the lamed as the shepherd’s staff guiding the sheep, the aleph and its meaning in the threefold seal of Philadelphia, the man in linen, the coals of fire—all that and more, catalogued in Final Observations—and topped above all by the appearance of the ark of the testament as the symbol of the glory of God’s presence among His people!

The Rapture Quandary Solved

At this point, we come to a break in the chapter that, if not understood correctly, can cause a lot of difficulty:

The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly. (Revelation 11:14)

It has already been acknowledged in the press of late that the COVID pandemic is over, but even as various regions or sectors of society are declaring the end of the pandemic, it can be seen that another “woe” is on the horizon: monkeypox. And besides that, the financial world is spiraling out of control, and WWIII is already declared. Each can decide for himself which is the next woe. Satan seeks to consolidate the one-world order ever more strongly, and whether it hurts most because of the monkeypox or the moneypox or the sunnypox (that is to say, because of mandates regarding health, finance, or climate,) there is no question that the woe is coming speedily.

The good news is that Babylon is fallen. The fact that the European Central Bank (ECB) had to hold an emergency meeting right after a regular meeting and is now struggling to keep the eurozone from “fragmenting”[12] is a biblical portent. The European nations are the classical ten divisions of the Roman Empire, which are prophesied to be fragmented:

And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces [cause to fragment] and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces [fragmented] the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure. (Daniel 2:44-45)

But notice that the Bible draws a clear line of demarcation between the second woe (including the ascension of the two witnesses) and the third woe (seventh trumpet). The difficulty is that the ascension of the two witnesses, representing the two churches of Smyrna and Philadelphia, happened earlier in the chapter, yet the ark of the testament has not yet been mentioned. This would seem to suggest that anyone who sees the ark (i.e., we ourselves) would already have been left behind by the time the ark is revealed.

The wider issue here is that other scriptural evidence shows that the seventh trumpet must sound before the saints are raptured:

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (1 Corinthians 15:52)

If the seventh trumpet is the last trumpet—or even if it is not the last trumpet, either way—the dead in Christ shall not rise before it sounds. This means the resurrection and ascension of the two witnesses cannot be equated directly in time with the rapture, since it happens before the second woe is past, and thus before the seventh trumpet sounds.

This means the prophecy of the two witnesses must be understood in a different way, in order to avoid a contradiction in the Bible itself. The prophecy of the two witnesses must be telling the story of the development of the heavenly sign of the ark of the testament, and there especially the “ascension” of the two fish in Pisces following the path of PanSTARRS, while the sign in turn—through which the rapture date could be determined—gives, in a hidden form, the date of the rapture itself. This resolves the apparent contradiction.

Note that this solution depends on the sign of the ark of the testament. Without an ark sign that encompasses the entire story of the two witnesses, the contradiction would not be possible to solve! How blessed we are, that God has given us the light to understand His word, step by step!

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. (Revelation 11:15)

Isn’t it fitting that right now the seventh trumpet is shown sounding in the heavens as Venus comes out of it—the same trumpet that started to be blown on May 4, 2022, when Venus was at the mouthpiece on the first day the hidden manna was needed for sustenance? The breath of Venus traversed the trumpet from May 4 to June 17, when it finally sounded out and the mystery was to be finished.

No other ministry discovered the ark of the testament that solves this biblical conundrum, and no other ministry includes every facet of the story of the two witnesses. This fact shows once more that the story of the two witnesses is the story of this movement. In the prophecy, their story comes after the first mention of the seventh trumpet and the promise of the finishing of the mystery in chapter 10 and before the true sounding of the seventh trumpet in chapter 11. The story of the two witnesses is the story of those who would finish the mystery that was left unfinished upon the Millerite disappointment in 1844—and therefore it could only be fully deciphered by those who have lived that experience.

At the sound of the seventh trumpet, there are voices in heaven announcing that the Lord has taken possession of and assumed His reign over the earth. This is one of the carillon events on the divine clocks:

And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, (Revelation 11:16)

Normally a carillon performance takes place at a particular hour of the day such as 12:00 noon. Since we are dealing with the Mazzaroth clock, this would correspond to when the clock hand (the sun) is in Orion’s hand at the galactic equator on solstice, June 21, 2022, shortly after the sounding of the trumpet on June 17. Since it is not a point on an Orion Clock cycle, all of which have ended, there is no mention of the four living creatures participating in this joyous praise:

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 11:17)

Taking His great power is symbolized by Orion “taking” the sun in His hand. It is the power to execute judgment on the earth for its wickedness, as expressed in the throwing down of the coals of fire described in Ezekiel and pictured in the highest resolution photo of the sun ever taken.

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)

The verse above describes the wrath of God beginning June 22, 2022 (“thy wrath is come”), the millennium judgment (“the time of the dead, that they should be judged”), the reward of the righteous (“thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants”), and the utter destruction of the wicked (“destroy them which destroy the earth”)—all the things that are symbolized in the closing days of the sign of the ark from June 22 to July 17, 2022.

Finally, after all the above—when the ark has been completely deciphered—then it is finally said to have been seen:

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)

This comes a little before the pole of the ark is completely traced, which is itself a chiastic reflection of the unmeasured portion of the temple for the Gentiles, as was stated at the beginning. This part after the rapture belongs to them, and all who have refused to let the Lord dwell with them.

The Jews misinterpreted and misapplied the word of God, and they knew not the time of their visitation. The years of the ministry of Christ and His apostles,—the precious last years of grace to the chosen people,—they spent in plotting the destruction of the Lord’s messengers. Earthly ambitions absorbed them, and the offer of the spiritual kingdom came to them in vain. So today the kingdom of this world absorbs men’s thoughts, and they take no note of the rapidly fulfilling prophecies and the tokens of the swift-coming kingdom of God. {DA 235.2}

The Revelation has been deciphered. Also, the chiastic pinnacle of the book has been explained. The seventh trumpet has sounded, and the two witnesses have prophesied, died, risen, and ascended. Now the burning question remains: how is the mystery of God to be finished? Has the correct rapture date been found? This will be the subject of the next article! Give God the glory that His power deserves!

As promised that Israel would become if they would “not hearken unto the voice of the Lord”.

Deuteronomy 28:15, 44 – But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee… He [the stranger] shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.
