The Seven Angels of Vengeance

 

With sorrow of soul and deep longing, the last warning fades away and the consequences of rejecting the knowledge of God begin their onset. While most will not be able to internalize the contents of this article before it is too late, perhaps to some it will bring a measure of solace amidst their trials to know that as the mercy of God has a time limit, after which His wrath necessarily had to come, so His vengeance also has a time limit until His indignation will be overpast. Those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus will indeed face trials, but there is a wealth of light contained in this article that was given by God for such a time as this, and it should be an encouragement and a guide to the faithful who are looking for the coming of the Lord.

The hope of salvation is near, despite circumstances in the world that are darker than ever. God is not slack concerning His promises, but His people have neglected to listen to His voice and follow Him. God has given to His children the times of the signs and seasons according to His clocks, but His children have not valued His wisdom. Ask yourself: when Jesus said in AD 31 “it is not for you to know the times,” did He not imply that it was for others to know? When He said “watch, because I come as a thief,” did He not imply that His coming would NOT be a surprise to those who watch? Then His clocks must be seen—especially by those who must run the last race and finish the last work before Jesus comes. This is a critical time, and every provision God has given must be utilized for His people to overcome every obstacle in their path.

One of the last signs given in the Bible before the wrath of God is the departing of the heavens like a scroll when it is rolled together.[1] In symbolic language, this sign is about a book that is closed in some sense—a book that has to do with the heavens. Now that WhiteCloudFarm’s fourth book has been published, entitled The Ark of Time, and now that the Victory Cycle[2] is about to begin—a time in which figurative Jericho is to be conquered—the work of writing and warning and prophesying is largely finished and it is time to “roll it up.”

It was with joy and praise to God that the fourth book about the Orion clock[3] was published on the throne line date of September 3, 2020, because God has provided in advance so abundantly for His people, so that in the time of need, they will have what is needed for the spiritual battles they will face. This book includes the full brightness of God’s message for this time, including the revelation of the ark of the covenant in heaven, where the law of God is set forth as the standard and basis of judgment—condemnation for those who do not follow it, but a delight to the faithful.[4] This culminating revelation of the glory of God that shines over the ark of the covenant is to be the sustenance for God’s people in this dark time.

But the Lord has been continuing to give additional light and guidance by revealing even more meaning in His word about the times ahead and what it will take to conquer the heavenly Canaan, and that is the reason for this “rolling of the scroll.”

After the long marches around ancient Jericho, the fall of the city was signaled by the blowing of trumpets and a shout of victory. But it was not the trumpeting priests who rushed in to take the city; it was the congregation. In a similar way, the fall of antitypical Babylon is also preceded by the blowing of trumpets and the shout of victory, and it is not the scribes and messengers of God who rush in to conquer it, but the rest of the body of the Church Militant.

And to every warfare, timing is critical. That is why trumpets were used, and therefore it is imperative that the soldiers of Christ are listening for the certain sound of the trumpet call that is made by those who are watching His clocks, which entails much more than you know. The final battle of Armageddon is quickly approaching, and God has seen fit to equip His faithful warriors to sound the loud cry by giving understanding of key topics: the use of the silver trumpet, the fulfillment of the jubilee, the timing of the seven last plagues, and much more. And He has given many signs and wonders to accompany His word, some of which you will discover in the following pages.

Expanding on the “silver trumpet” of the Coronageddon article series, which was indicated on the clock as corresponding to September 19, 2020, the Day of Trumpets (Tishri 1) in Time No Longer, this article will reveal, among many other things, what the blowing of the trumpets means. It is the trumpet of victory, even if the church does not yet appear victorious, much like the conquerors of Jericho shouted in triumph before the victory was gained. It was an act of faith in the mighty God who had given them His law—carried in its ark by the priests as they marched—as the conditions and title to the land they were about to conquer. As you progress through this article, you will learn what victory was really gained beforehand and how you were (hopefully!) part of it.

Further study of the silver trumpet reveals its importance and why God wants each one to understand it clearly. The KJV Bible translates various Hebrew words to the same word “trumpet” in English. One of the Hebrew words refers to the ram’s horn trumpet, and another word refers to the silver trumpet. Different types of “trumpets” have different uses in the Bible, and different sounds made with the trumpets also have specific purposes. The silver trumpet is specifically mentioned as part of the equipment of the priests, Aaron’s sons.

Make thee two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them for the calling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps. (Numbers 10:2)

Subsequent verses explain that blowing one trumpet is the call to an assembly, while blowing both trumpets is an “alarm” to call the camps to march forward, to go to war, and to celebrate joyful occasions. Jesus, the Mighty Conqueror, is on His way, and therefore He is calling His faithful ones to march forward during this last stretch of the battlefield and to listen to His call and follow His lead.

The Bible reveals that the silver trumpet is key for the victory cycle of the Orion clock as it emphasizes its various roles. If one searches the Bible for the recorded uses of the silver trumpet (H2689), one finds that it is used in the following ways: for marches, war, celebration, in front of the ark of the covenant, in making an oath to return to the Lord, in victory, on feast day celebrations, for the dedication of the laying of the foundation of the temple, and for the dedication of the wall.

As you can see, the main uses are extremely relevant and of the utmost importance in light of the times. In today’s prophetic landscape, the trumpet needs to be blown for war because Armageddon is coming. It needs to be blown for celebration because the ark of the covenant sign is complete, and we are now marching into the victory cycle like the priests going “before the ark.” The trumpet needs to be blown because the “wall” of the 144,000 is complete. (Everyone who is called to serve the Lord at this hour will learn what that means and what their role is, and what promise belongs to them, as they read the revelations in this article.) The trumpet also needs to be blown for reformation and to return to the Lord. How many still need to recognize that in their personal lives, they are not ready for the things that are upon the world, and that their life is not yet in harmony with God’s will? And the trumpet needs to be blown because the victory shout is here, and to accompany shouts of victory and praise is also one of the uses of the trumpet. In fact, the article series entitled The Victory Shout was so named for that very reason!

The one psalm where the silver trumpet is mentioned—Psalm 98—is a psalm for God’s people today that speaks about the “new song” of the 144,000:

O sing unto the Lord a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory. (Psalm 98:1)

Jesus interceding in Orion Notice that His “right hand” (Betelgeuse on the Orion clock) and His “holy arm” (the holy throne lines, when His arm is in the lowered position) are associated with “victory” which God’s people should be ready to celebrate and shout about! It was throughout this wide segment of the clock that God unveiled the work and ministry of Gabriel in the sign of the ark of the covenant; wonderful works are done by the Lord’s right arm, and therefore, according to the clock, the victory shout would logically be thereafter, i.e. after the left throne lines. And for the victory, it is imperative to understand the messages revealed by His clocks as the spiritual weapons of the warfare.

As the people of God are bracing for the future, many are realizing that drastic changes and tough decisions must be made in life. But even when it is hard, isn’t it a blessing to make needed changes that bring one closer to God’s will? Doesn’t a person feel relief when acting in good conscience by following the Holy Spirit, even though sacrifices are involved? Can you praise the Lord for the work He is doing in your life? Can you give God glory for helping you get the victory over any sins that beset you? This is what the victory shout is about!

Sing unto the Lord with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm. With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the Lord, the King. (Psalm 98:5–6)

The harp in this psalm is another connection to the harpers of Revelation 14:2-3 who sing this “new song.” And the message of this “song” is expressed in praise:

Before the Lord; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity. (Psalm 98:9)

This is the psalm of the 144,000—“singing” about the coming of the Lord and the judgment of the earth. This is exactly what was prophesied of the end-time Elijah, of whom it was said that he would announce the time of the wrath of God (judgment) and the second advent (“he cometh”):

John came in the spirit and power of Elijah to proclaim the first advent of Jesus. I was pointed down to the last days and saw that John represented those who should go forth in the spirit and power of Elijah to herald the day of wrath and the second advent of Jesus. {EW 155.1}

So, it is clear that the silver trumpet has a lot to do with the present times, which is only natural because it has to do with the return of Jesus (who comes with a silver trumpet in His hand[5]). And the victory cycle of the clock is the cycle of His coming, which begins on October 5, 2020 during the autumn feasts when the trumpet would normally be used. In fact, the very name of the victory cycle implies the use of the trumpet because a celebration of victory is one of the purposes of the silver trumpet.

Therefore, it begs the question: when should the trumpets be blown (or when should they have been blown)?

The obvious choice might seem to be the Day of Trumpets, which fell on September 19, 2020. The Hebrew name for this holiday is Yom Teruah, which literally means “day of shouting or blasting.” And because Armageddon is coming in the victory cycle, this would correspond to the blowing of two trumpets for an alarm of war, not a single trumpet as would be used to call the congregation together. At this point a friendly reminder is in order that there is a second possibility for the Day of Trumpets one (lunar) month later, based on the case that the barley was late to ripen. This second possibility is interesting in the sense that it could result in the corresponding Day of Atonement beginning on October 27, which is Jesus’ birthday in the solar cycle.

It is important to be aware that contrary to popular belief, the Day of Trumpets is NOT the biblical New Year’s Day, despite the fact that today it is called Rosh Hashanah (meaning New Year’s Day). The biblical new year begins in spring with the first month, Nissan, not in the autumn with the seventh month, Tishri. Nehemia Gordon—a well-known Messianic Jew—explains how the misnaming of the day came about as a result of Babylonian influence in his article entitled How Yom Teruah Became Rosh Hashanah.

The trumpet is also blown to signal the jubilee year—the fiftieth year of the 49-year jubilee cycle. Although the “trumpet (shofar) of the jubilee” is a different Hebrew word, the blowing of the silver trumpets is also connected to the great jubilee because it is about the coming of Jesus, and Jesus comes with a silver trumpet. The Lord emphasizes the jubilee in the sign of the ark of the covenant,[6] which in turn is a pattern for the victory cycle, and thus gives a great deal of importance to the jubilee. Although the trumpet of the jubilee is blown on Yom Kippur, however, the jubilee year itself doesn’t begin when the trumpet is blown but rather when the new year begins (on Nissan 1). The trumpets accompany the proclamation in advance that the next year to begin will be the year of release, typifying when God’s people will be liberated from the captivity of sin.

The timing of the jubilee cycle has been known ever since Jesus (re)proclaimed it during His ministry on earth. However, if a person extrapolates the cycle to the present time, the jubilee does not fall on any nearby year. For that reason, it has been a mystery how the antitype of the jubilee could coincide with the return of Christ anytime soon. The next possible jubilee according to the former cycle would be the year 2037. Does that mean Jesus must wait until then before He can return? That would not fit in with the evidence that His return is much nearer, especially as given in the Orion message.

The key to solving this problem is in the fact that the year 1890 was the 70th jubilee year[7] of the 49-year cycle since the entry into Canaan, as confirmed by Jesus Himself.[8] That year of 1890 was a special year in which Jesus would have returned if His people had been ready, and that is the key to solving this problem. There are volumes written about the events of that year and how the church messed up the opportunity like the children of Israel before the 40-year wilderness wandering.[9] Thus, we are already past due for the great jubilee because of collective sin, and the only way to reach it is to “turn back” (repent) and meet the Lord there. Therefore, the solution to how the jubilee coincides with Christ’s return, as regular readers of this website know, is in the understanding that we are figuratively traveling “back in time” to the 1890 jubilee year,[10] and whenever we arrive at 1890, we are automatically dealing with the jubilee year—and even the 70th.

But how can we know that the journey will be complete and THIS coming spring 2021 will begin the jubilee (and not for example spring 2022 or any other year)? How does God tell us that we will have really reached the destination at the end of traveling back in time to the 70th jubilee?

It is so simple for anyone who studies our articles and does their “homework” that you might like to take a moment now to try to find it on your own…

The Jubilee of Vengeance

To find the divine label, just ask yourself when the next biblical year should begin, and then look at what time it is on the Orion clock. Using the calendar rules discovered in Gethsemane, one looks for the first visible crescent new moon after the spring equinox, which will be on the evening of April 13, 2021, making April 13/14 the first day of the first biblical (lunar) month, thus being the first day of the new year. Remember that date—April 14, 2021—because it will come back many times with deeper meaning.

And what time is this on the Orion clock? Since we are looking for a return to the 70th jubilee year of 1890, a glance at the judgment clock would be helpful:

The year 1890 on the judgment cycle of the Orion clock

In the closing cycle in the year 2020, however, this same point corresponded to the date of the second covering cherub as part of the sign of the ark of the covenant, as shown in Desolations Are Determined.

The sign of the ark of the covenant

This point is marked by an “invisible” hand on the Orion clock, and by superimposing the judgment cycle (which spanned 168 years) onto the closing cycle (which spans 259 days) it was possible to determine exactly which day this corresponded to:

The 1890 point on the closing cycle of the Orion clock

In the sign of the ark of the covenant, in the time period of the seventh trumpet,[11] this point marks the position of Gabriel the archangel who announces the day of wrath and the return of Jesus, with an earthquake among other things.

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: (1 Thessalonians 4:16)

It is assumed by some that the archangel in this verse refers to Jesus Himself (as Michael, the archangel) but the fact that His second coming is presently being announced by Gabriel suggests that the “shout” and “voice” and “trumpeting” pertains to him as the other covering cherub, and not the King of kings personally.

But to find out how the superimposition of the year 1890 falls during the victory cycle itself, one can simply add one full cycle (259 days) to the July 29, 2020 date to get the date for the same point in the next cycle. Doing this calculation reveals the great surprise:

July 29, 2020 + 259 days = April 14, 2021!

WOW! It is the very day of the biblical new year in 2021! Thus, God says through His clock that 2021 is indeed the year that begins the 70th jubilee of “1890,” and therefore the year of Christ’s return will have been reached—and probably also the very day when His coming is visible to the whole world, to both the wicked and the just. What a God we serve!

The implications of this finding are far reaching. It is certainly an amazing act of providence that in the victory cycle, the 1890 point falls precisely on the Hebrew new year’s day, thus confirming that the time for Jesus’ return has really come and that the victory cycle is indeed the cycle when we will have reached the end of our “time-travel” journey back to the great 70th jubilee year of 1890. Our prior writings in the article Seven Steps to Eternity are very relevant here, especially the paragraphs under the heading Jacob’s Ladder and the Joyless Jubilee.

As we approach the great jubilee of the end of the world, the prophecy of Isaiah must come into focus:

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, [*] and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified. (Isaiah 61:1–3)

This scripture reveals why the two anointed ones are “anointed:” to preach all the things in those verses. A person has to be anointed in order to proclaim the great jubilee of liberty from sin (i.e. the coming of the kingdom of God) as Jesus did, or to announce the day of vengeance (i.e. the judgment of the end of the world), which is Christ’s return.

When Jesus was here on earth, He quoted only the first half of that prophecy (up to the point indicated above by the asterisk) as recorded in Luke:

And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears. And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph’s son? (Luke 4:16–22)

Notice that Jesus did NOT quote the part about the day of vengeance; that is because His 3½-year ministry would only fulfill the first half of the prophecy. At that point He was killed, and there was to be a second anointed one who would proclaim the second part of Isaiah’s prophecy (because only anointed ones—sent from heaven to earth—can make the proclamation of the jubilee or the day of vengeance according to the prophecy of Isaiah).

So, the alignment of the 1890 point on the clock with the biblical new year in 2021 not only confirms that 2021 is the year of Christ’s return, but also explains why someone had to be anointed and sent to announce the fulfillment of the jubilee. Jesus came the first time to announce the coming of His kingdom, built on the righteousness of His selfless sacrifice, as the true “release” to which the ceremonial law pointed. Likewise, it was necessary for another person to be anointed to announce His judgment upon the world, which was also foreshadowed in the types. The endlessly repeating ceremonial types themselves could not announce the great events they foreshadowed; the events had to be announced by one sent by God the Father.

This is why the 1890 date of July 29, 2020 was pointing to the second anointed one in the sign of the ark of the covenant, as shown in Desolations are Determined. The second anointed one is the announcer of the second half of the prophecy of Isaiah 61:1–3. And just like the first Anointed One “closed the book” (literally “rolled up the scroll”) just before making the definitive statement, “This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears,” so also the second anointed one announces the day of vengeance with the proclamation that this article accompanies. You will see him make that proclamation via video, below.

It was Sabbath, August 29, when this connection to the jubilee and 1890 was “announced” in Paraguay, just three days after the last article in The Ark of Time was published. So, in a very real sense, the second anointed one also “closed the book” just before making his announcement. That was the beginning of what has resulted in this closing article for the closing cycle of the Orion clock.

Looking further at the example of Jesus, He declared the jubilee to be “this day,” spoken in the late spring of the year AD 29. This date is given as “probable” according to the Seventh-day Adventist Bible Commentary, but it is confirmed with certainty as a jubilee year by the Orion clock as explained in Seven Steps to Eternity (being the 32nd jubilee from the entering of Canaan). Thus, Jesus announced the jubilee within the very year of the jubilee.

In a similar way, the second anointed one was sent to announce the day of vengeance and the coming of Jesus:

John came in the spirit and power of Elijah to proclaim the first advent of Jesus. I was pointed down to the last days and saw that John represented those who should go forth in the spirit and power of Elijah to herald the day of wrath and the second advent of Jesus. {EW 155.1}

The day of vengeance is also known as a year:

For it is the day of the Lord’s vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion. (Isaiah 34:8)

And this “year” is the subject of all the articles on WhiteCloudFarm published since the ark of the covenant was revealed, which speak about the “Father’s Day” (i.e. day of the Lord) ring-of-fire solar eclipse of June 21, 2020 that forms the center of the sign and points forward to the conclusion of the victory cycle on June 21, 2021, exactly one year later. Therefore, the proclamation of the day of vengeance on August 29, 2020 came perfectly “within” the associated year, just like how Jesus announced the fulfillment of the jubilee within the selfsame year.

Again, to be truly clear, it was Jesus who announced the year of release, whereas it is the second anointed one who announces the year of vengeance. There are two roles: Jesus’ work as our Forerunner still needed to be followed by the faith of created beings who would have a greater work to do.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. (John 14:12)

Jesus’ death and resurrection—going to the Father—enabled us who believe in Him to do the greater works He spoke of. This disproves the “all done at the cross” doctrine and shows from the mouth of Jesus that He expects fruit from His sacrifice: works—and even greater works than His own! O Christian, are you thinking about ministering to others in a mighty way? The works of redeemed man must fulfill the second half of Daniel’s “seventieth week,”[12] in the midst of which Jesus was cut off. In terms of Isaiah 61:1–3, this latter work includes the announcement of the day of vengeance, and when this day (year) of vengeance is complete, Jesus can finally return for His people who have matured to His stature and have demonstrated His sacrificial character in the body of the church.

Are you beginning to see the “wow factor” in this one little “coincidence” of the biblical New Year’s Day landing on the 1890 jubilee point on the victory cycle!? It confirms not only the jubilee of 1890 that we have figuratively returned to, but also the messenger of the light of the fourth angel that began to shine in 1888, his position as the second anointed one and covering cherub, and the year of wrath He proclaimed!

To help bring this message home to the heart, one of our study forum members shared the following words:

Dear Brethren, Church of Philadelphia, this post is in fact primarily in response to the discovery of the 1890 marker in the Victory Shout cycle, the same theme Brother Robert has been painstakingly trying to relay to us in human words, but still he also finds it too deep, even much deeper than the best words he’s been able to find so far. It is so and true that that which the Lord has now removed His finger from, to permit us to see, is far reaching.

Consider for example that in the Closing cycle, which is the cycle in which the sign of the ark was revealed from the right throne lines (April 27-29, 2020) to the just-ended left throne lines (September 3-6, 2020), it was revealed to us for the first time that the reflection of the Passion week of May 20-25-27 (associated with the sacrifice of the first Anointed One) had to have its mirrored reflection on the other side of the sign on the Orion clock. As it turned out, that reflection unmistakably pointed to the second anointed one, the angel that became human whose reflection dates were July 22-24-29, 2020. And we know in both witnesses, the dates marked on the clocks—both the Father’s and Son’s clock in this case—are significant in that they all point to the willing sacrifices that each of the two witness made in the plan of salvation. The first Anointed One’s May 20-27 dates point to His death on Calvary for us. On the other hand, the new moon sighting of July 21/22 pointed to the beginning of the month of the birth[13] of the second anointed. Therefore, his equivalent of the eight-day span of May 20-27 became July 22-29, 2020 with the latter date being the day on which NEOWISE made its closest approach to earth in the Big Dipper. And thus, there it was portrayed and confirmed in stellar proportions the descent from heaven of that other angel—all in willing sacrifice as indicated by the crescent moon of July 22 (for August), his birth month!

Brethren, marvel not at the little sacrificial hardships to be endured for but a short season now. They are all but a very faint representation of the real thing, yet needful so that all righteousness may be fulfilled.

Consider prayerfully—among many other important things—why the sign of the ark was given now. One of the major reasons is because it carries in itself the infinite lesson of our Great Sacrifice. Attempting to also portray that sacrifice with pen, the prophetess inked:

Sorrow filled Heaven, as it was realized that man was lost, and the world which God had created was to be filled with mortals doomed to misery, sickness, and death, and there was no way of escape for the offender; the whole family of Adam must die. The heart of the Son of God was touched with pity for the lost race. Upon his lovely countenance rested an expression of sympathy and sorrow. Soon he approached the exceeding bright light which enshrouded the Father, and he seemed to engage in close converse with him. The anxiety of the angels was intense while Jesus thus communed with his Father. Three times he was shut in by the cloud of glory; the third time he came forth his countenance was calm, free from all perplexity and trouble, and shone with benevolence and loveliness, such as words cannot express. He then made known to the angelic host that a way of escape had been made for lost man. He told them that he had been pleading with his Father, and had offered to give his life a ransom, and take the sentence of death upon himself, that through him man might find pardon; that through the merits of his blood, and obedience to the law of God, man could again have the favor of God, and be brought into the beautiful garden, and eat of the fruit of the tree of life. {ST January 30, 1879, par. 1}

Do we see the love of love of love here? Take a short moment, dear brethren, to try and imagine what could have been the result for you and me if Jesus had given up at His first or second time being shut in by that cloud! Do you think the Father (or the universe as a whole) was going to fault Him for having not tried hard enough to convince the Father that He was offering Himself a sacrifice for lost humanity when we had been left to perish without hope? But three times He kept on trying until the Father accepted His offer of sacrifice for our sakes.

But think further and deeper again, dear brothers and sisters. This wasn’t the end of it. A nod by the Father that His Son should become the sacrifice wasn’t the actual sacrifice itself. Jesus had to SEPARATE from His Father and loved ones to come down to the world. It had to be done—to accept that separation of lightyear proportions! All for our sake! What love! We know the rest of the story of what our Savior endured at the hands of His creation as He walked that Via Dolorosa.

After which, an angel—in acting his part according to prophecy—made a similar sacrifice, yet not to offer his blood for lost humanity, but to complete what Jesus began in the prophetic week. But still, this beloved archangel also had to sacrifice greatly; becoming of him that “was separate from his brethren” in heaven, Genesis 49:26, and all for humanity’s sake—you and I, my brethren! This is just incomprehensible for my sin-dwarfed mind. It wets my eyes with tears as I ask together with the Psalmist:

What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? (Psalm 8:4)

But here is what we, the fallen race, are struggling to comprehend. First the Lord says:

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. (1 Corinthians 10:13)

All that God is now doing with us—and for that matter, to fulfill all righteousness—is simply testing us (and in very limited proportions) to prove our willingness to sacrifice, like His Son did before. But still, in love and mercy, He is only asking for our few steps... And we find that little sacrifice out of this world to make!

My fellow brethren, indeed, marvel not at all that we’re going through this now. This is what was spoken of in prophecy when God’s servant wrote:

The mighty shaking has commenced and will go on, and all will be shaken out who are not willing to take a bold and unyielding stand for the truth and to sacrifice for God and His cause. The angel said, “Think ye that any will be compelled to sacrifice? No, no. It must be a freewill offering. It will take all to buy the field.” I cried to God to spare His people, some of whom were fainting and dying. Then I saw that the judgments of the Almighty were speedily coming, and I begged of the angel to speak in his language to the people. Said he, “All the thunders and lightnings of Mount Sinai would not move those who will not be moved by the plain truths of the Word of God, neither would an angel’s message awake them.” {EW 50.3}

We are in the prophesied time of that mighty shaking “and all will be shaken out who are not willing to take a bold and unyielding stand for the truth and to sacrifice for God and His cause.” That angel that Mrs. Ellen G. White was allowed to see saying, “Think ye that any will be compelled to sacrifice? No, no. It must be a freewill offering. It will take all to buy the field,” is here. He is that little strength of Philadelphia and that other angel that descended from heaven. But what shall be our response when asked to do a little sacrifice for God and for His cause as His witnesses in our high calling? Will He find faith in us? For it is only through this way that we can enter that jubilee year we see nearing now as the Lord gives indisputable evidence that we are indeed figuratively approaching that important 1890 year when His Son can come. Are we going to fail to make small sacrifices like how the church once failed in 1890 as it refused to migrate from its position of its self-righteousness beliefs to a position where God wanted it, in righteousness by faith?

May the Lord who conquered all be our ultimate strength so that we all may pass the test and remain standing.

 

I can only add an emphatic “Amen” to this expression of appreciation for the sacrifices of love that can only adequately be followed with a reciprocal sacrifice of one’s own. And now that the last Yom Kippur is past and God’s judgments have been determined upon the world, the word “sacrifice” will take on new shades of meaning. But not all sacrifices are pleasing to God: He accepts willing sacrifice. But as grace has ended and judgments will soon fall without mercy, when life gets hard and wealth, possessions, comforts are taken away, the opportunities to make a willing sacrifice are all but gone. What will you give as an offering to the Lord, as a gift for His return?

The Victory over Sin

So far, it has been shown that the great 70th jubilee of Christ’s return begins in 2021, and therefore the 2020 autumn feast season is of the utmost importance as final judgments had to be determined by Yom Kippur. The trumpets of warning have passed, and the sound of the coming jubilee and the associated day of vengeance has been heard. The last echoes of mercy have died away and the destructive, merciless judgments of God are soon to come upon the world.

This is how the judgment has closed in perfect time according to the closing cycle of the Orion clock, as explained in Time No Longer.

The closing of the judgment in the closing cycle of the Orion clock

In this cycle, the seventh and final stage of all the previous judgment cycles has come to completion in chiastic order, the last closing segment being that of the first and original judgment cycle with which the Orion message began in 2010. What, then, does the victory cycle represent, if all the previous cycles of the judgment clock have been closed?

The association of the year beginning April 14, 2021 (Nissan 1) with the 1890 jubilee invites further questions and thus further study. The jubilee represents the great liberation from the bondage of sin in this world, and since Jesus’ return is the ultimate jubilee that releases the redeemed from the presence of sin, one might ask: could the jubilee beginning on April 14, 2021 mean that the rapture will happen at that time, and not on June 21, as explained in the Victory Shout article series?

In ancient Israel, the jubilee was the year in which the people would return to the land of their inheritance.

In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession. (Leviticus 25:13)

Putting oneself in the shoes of the ancient Israelites, it is not hard to imagine that this returning to his possession took some amount of time; it did not happen on a single day, and not everyone would have been able to do it at once. Ellen G. White’s prophecy of the jubilee in Early Writings also indicates that the rapture does NOT happen exactly when the jubilee begins but “soon” afterward:

Then commenced the jubilee, when the land should rest. I saw the pious slave rise in triumph and victory and shake off the chains that bound him, while his wicked master was in confusion and knew not what to do; for the wicked could not understand the words of the voice of God. Soon appeared the great white cloud. It looked more lovely than ever before. On it sat the Son of man. At first we did not see Jesus on the cloud, but as it drew near the earth we could behold His lovely person. This cloud, when it first appeared, was the sign of the Son of man in heaven. The voice of the Son of God called forth the sleeping saints, clothed with glorious immortality. The living saints were changed in a moment and were caught up with them into the cloudy chariot... {EW 35.1}

It is tempting when reading prophecies from a distance to imagine that all the events happen at once, but the word “soon” in the prophecy above is an indication that there is still some amount of time that will transpire after the jubilee commences, before the resurrection of the sleeping saints and the rapture of the living saints together with them.[14] In another passage, Ellen G. White mentions that this “soon” is in fact “a number of days:”

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}

In this prophecy we see the cloud from another perspective and learn that “a number of days” transpire after it first appears and while the Synagogue of Satan worships at the saints’ feet. So, although the “pious slave” indeed rises in victory, and confusion befalls the wicked as soon as the year of jubilee begins on April 14, there is still some time that must transpire after that. There is an immediate effect of the jubilee—for both the righteous and the wicked—but the resurrection and the rapture come a number of days after the April 14, 2021 beginning of the jubilee (i.e. June 21, 2021).

It has long been a question, what “number” of days is meant in that prophecy? Now we can do a direct calculation, considering that the last day of the victory cycle is properly June 20, 2021 and the jubilee begins on April 14 of the same year. A date calculator shows it as a span of 67 days.

That number might not look familiar until it is seen in the context of “the number of man” as explained in the article entitled In the Shadow of Time. The following paragraphs from the article are highly relevant:

The beginning of sin was 4000 years before the crucifixion of Jesus in the spring of AD 31, while Creation was 4032 years before His birth in the autumn of 5 BC. That places Creation in the autumn of 4037 BC and the entrance of sin in the spring of 3970 BC. Adam, therefore, would have been 66 years and 6 months old. And now we understand the number of the man:

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (Revelation 13:18)

The meaning of the number of man

The man is Adam (whose name in its original Hebrew, means “man”), and his number is 666, because it represents the time when sin first gained the ascendancy over man. It is described as “the number of his name”[15] because that number represents the power of sin over man, which describes the character (or name) of the beast. It is the antithesis of salvation, for in Christ, we have victory over sin, such that it has no more power over us. But those who do not experience victory, have the number of the beast. May the message of the fourth angel serve as your fig balm, as you massage it into your wounds and let it complete the reformation from sin in your life in short order.

Will you be among the 144,000 (as mentioned in the very next verse, Revelation 14:1) who have the wisdom to understand that Adam’s age of 66 years and 6 months ultimately confirms the Orion clock and that the End of Time has arrived? Will you be among the wise (mentioned in Daniel 12:3) who “shall shine as the brightness of the firmament” and “turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever”?

Now seeing that from the jubilee to the second coming of Jesus is 67 days, could this span of time after the great release from the bondage of sin be meant as 66.6 days, alluding to the 66 years and 6 months which Adam lived without sin before the fall? (Note that in Jewish reckoning, partial days are counted as full days.)

Here we see the day of year principle at work: the 66 years and 6 months of sin-free life in the Garden of Eden now find their end-time counterpart in 66 days + 1 of life after the release from sin, but in a completely destroyed world. If a man living in perfect paradise could fall, how great is that fall? And if a man living in a desolate wasteland gains the victory over every carnal temptation and still honors God like a modern Job, how great is that victory!?

This is the victory that must be demonstrated by the 144,000 to prove to the onlooking universe that redeemed mankind has really overcome the fall, and it is safe for them to be translated into the eternal Kingdom. This is our high calling!

But if from Adam’s fall there were 4000 years of sin until Christ’s death on the cross, and since God allotted six days for man’s work,[16] when should the six thousand years of sin actually end? Adding the remaining 2000 years to the 4000 years from 3970 BC to AD 31 results in the year 2031 when the 6000 years should finally expire. To be exact, it would be the spring of 2031—exactly ten years after the jubilee of April 14, 2021.

This gives an important prophetic framework for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which is to be the result of a Decade of Action heralded as “Ten years to transform our world,” counted from NOW in the year 2020. In other words, 2031 should be the first year of the New Millennium of peace on earth under the New World Order, but which would in fact be hell on earth for anyone who wants to worship God alone. These ten years of “action” against God’s people are reminiscent of the severe persecution of the church of Smyrna:

Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. (Revelation 2:10)

Historically, these ten days corresponded to the worst ten years of persecution against Christians in the years of Diocletian from AD 303 to 313 after which emperor Constantine made Christianity the official religion of the Empire.[17] This history alludes to ten years of tribulation under the NWO, after which the Kingdom of Christ would come.

But if the prophecy to the church of Smyrna would fulfill in that way, what would happen to God’s people? Would they still be alive to see His return, or would they all have been “faithful unto death”?

For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days. (Mark 13:19–20)

Praise God for His goodness! The decision has been made and He has shortened these ten years of persecution by advancing His return, according to His clocks, to 2021. Instead of ten years of intense persecution, He will allow only a literal time of ten days before His return. At the end of this article, you will learn exactly how those ten days are counted and how intense they will be as the last dregs of God’s wrath are wrung out upon the earth.

The days of ease and comfort are over, and God will not allow the 2030 Agenda to be developed or sustained. Those who now put their trust in the arm of flesh will drink a bitter cup.

A Remarkable Heavenly Sign

The beginning of the jubilee on April 14, 2021 sheds additional light on the progress of the war between good and evil. On that day, there is to be a decided victory in favor of the saints as the victory cycle nears its end. The wicked will be thrown into confusion; the enemies of God’s people will be confounded. This sets the stage for the drama of the “great millstone” that was explained in The Hour of Escape.

And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. (Revelation 18:21)

In the aforementioned article, it was noted why Jupiter is the great millstone, and there it was observed that on April 25, 2021, it enters the constellation of the “mighty angel” of Aquarius—the angel who stands in the sea to cast things into it (the millstone, in this case). Furthermore, it was shown in The Coming of Christ that the critical moment for this throwing down of the millstone comes exactly on the May 20–23, 2021 throne lines of the Orion victory cycle, when Saturn—representing Satan—turns retrograde on the Mazzaroth clock.

Could this heavenly drama actually trace back to April 14, when commences the jubilee, as we now know? A look at Stellarium on this date turns up something astounding…

The sign of the jubilee

At the beginning of the jubilee year, the first day of the first month, Nissan—the day of the first crescent moon—there is the sun standing directly between the two fish of the constellation Pisces, with Venus and Mercury on either side, each in his fish.

We’ve known that the two fish can represent the two witnesses,[18] death and resurrection (or even the rapture in the case of the “ascending” fish, but that has already been ruled out for this date). On multiple occasions, we’ve seen two heavenly bodies highlighting the two fish, but this is the first time that we see this configuration on an important date with Venus and Mercury flanking the sun. Could the two inner planets represent the two tables of stone, or perhaps the two anointed ones? Could the sun represent the Shekinah glory? This could be a stunning depiction of the kingdom of God that resembles the sign of the ark of the covenant!

You might be wondering: how can there even be a heavenly sign on this date at all, since it falls within the half-hour of silence in heaven that was explained in The Hour of Escape? Is there further understanding about the half-hour of silence that we should pursue, or should we simply dismiss this sign as nothing but random coincidence? If this sign does have a meaning, what is it? Could this be another ark of the covenant sign, or does it have a different meaning? What would the implications be, either way? If this represents the ark of the covenant, has the seventh trumpet not ended yet, and is the mystery of God not yet finished?

Even though the timeframe of the seventh trumpet has properly ended on September 3-6, 2020, the effects that follow it (particularly the associated judgment described in the text[19]) are still to unfold. So, although the mystery of God associated with the seventh trumpet has been finished,[20] the Lord is continuing to guide His people by revealing additional insights into the times ahead. God reveals truth progressively, therefore one must walk in the light to stay abreast of truth, and as light shines on the pathway, it is one’s duty to investigate any questions that arise to keep finding further light in His Word. One cannot afford to fall into complacency and assume that enough is already known.

Remember, the truth is not weakened by re-examination (but the contrary). When the Lord reveals new light, we must continually re-evaluate what we knew before, in case any refinements are necessary to move forward in truth, without denying how the Lord has led up to this point. All of the books of this ministry are a testament to this principle of progressive revelation—none of what was written in the past has lost its relevance in the present, and its enduring relevance testifies the more to how God has been leading all along.

Nevertheless, as you can see, this prospective heavenly sign opens some big questions, which the WhiteCloudFarm publishing team had to grapple with on August 29, 2020. But the answers are not as difficult as they might seem, and although God has much more to teach through the study of these things, He has not led us astray. Let us start by reviewing the closing of the seventh trumpet to tackle the question of whether this future sign could be the “real” ark of the covenant sign mentioned there.

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)

Gabriel and Jesus Notice that the great sign of the ark of the covenant from April 27 to September 6, 2020 depicted the two anointed ones with Jesus on the right and Gabriel on the left, because the sign represented the heavenly perspective, i.e. looking from the Father’s perspective with Jesus on the right hand of power.[21] This corresponds to the indication in the verse above, which speaks of the ark being seen “in heaven,” or “from heaven’s perspective.” By contrast, what is seen on April 14, 2021 in the picture above is the view that we normally imagine as earthlings—Jesus as the morning star Venus on our left, which is the Father’s right, and Gabriel as usual represented by Mercury on our right. This means the sign of April 14, 2021 is showing something from the earth’s perspective; it is about something happening on the earth. This is exactly what the jubilee entails: liberty to the pious slaves[22] on the earth, and confusion to the wicked on the earth.

Furthermore, the orientation of the constellation of Pisces does not require the positions of Venus and Mercury to be as they are on April 14, 2021 to create a meaningful sign at this time. In fact, one might even expect them to be the other way around, because the horizontal[23] (dead) fish could rather easily be associated with Jesus, the antitype of “Moses” who died, while the vertical fish would fit the antitypical “Elijah” who ascends without tasting death. But because the sign of April 14, 2021 has Mercury (the messenger or “Elijah” symbol) strangely connected with the sacrificial fish and Venus (the symbol of Jesus as the Morning Star) in the ascension fish, this unusual twist must be an indication that we are NOT looking at a sign of the ark of the covenant as it is conventionally understood, where the sacrifice of Jesus is emphasized by the blood that was ceremonially sprinkled on His side of the ark—the only blood that can atone for man’s sin.

However, the sign—now disqualified as ark of the covenant sign—is definitely too impressive to dismiss as unimportant just because it falls in the period thus far understood as corresponding to “silence in heaven” reaching from the left to the right throne lines in the victory cycle. Christians who are “looking up” for the rapture will surely not overlook it. In fact, there are already videos about the ark of the covenant in heaven that are incredibly similar. A YouTube video that was published in 2016 entitled The true Ark of the Covenant Pt2 comes close to describing the features corresponding to the recent findings in Treasures of the Lost Ark (although we cannot endorse the rest of the channel). In particular, the role of the moon was nicely illustrated there.

Notice that the moon does play an important role in the sign of April 14, 2021. It is the crescent new moon that begins the jubilee year and is in the constellation of Aries (representing Jesus as the sacrificial Ram) on this day right beside the fish where Venus is. The crescent moon stands for a covering cherub in the true ark sign, so the sign we are looking at here apparently includes Aries as well. Could it perhaps also include another Mazzaroth constellation for the second anointed one?

According to the concept shown in the video linked above, the other covering cherub would be illustrated by the last waning moon of the prior month, which, if we step back in time in Stellarium, can be seen in the sea constellation of Aquarius (or even in the tail of the sea monster, Cetus, later as the day progresses).

The waning crescent of the jubilee sign

However, this would awkwardly associate the second anointed one not only with the “dead” fish, but also with the LGBT constellation of Aquarius! What significance could this have?

To understand what is portrayed in the heavens, we need to see it in terms of the biblical context. This is one of the important things that separates biblical astronomy from heathen astrology. A sign in heaven only has meaning when God’s Word ascribes it meaning, and the contextual meaning of this sign that falls on the biblical New Year’s Day (with the 1890 jubilee) can thus be found in Isaiah’s prophecy of the jubilee—and the day of vengeance that was announced by the second anointed one.

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified. (Isaiah 61:1–3)

Isaiah gives a perfect explanation of what is seen in the heavens—the triumph of the righteous and the day of vengeance against the wicked. The “pious slaves”[24] are symbolized by the “rising” of the vertical fish, which is connected to Aries as the Lamb of God. On the other side is symbolized the wicked by the fish that is flattened (destined for death), which is connected to Aquarius, the LGBT god. Thus, the ones who have the seal of God are separated from the ones who have the mark of the beast, each to their respective reward.

This explains why the second anointed one is now associated with these dead fish on the side of the “bad” constellations: he is the angel whose work was to proclaim the day of vengeance that will ultimately result in the death of the wicked when the Lord brings justice to the earth for the jubilee, because it will be liberation and good tidings and joy for the redeemed but vengeance and confusion and mourning for the lost.

Thus, the biblical foundation for this heavenly sign is the separation of the good and the bad that Jesus described:

And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. (Matthew 25:32–33)

In this context, the sheep on His right hand are depicted by Aries at on the right (our left) of the “Sun of Righteousness” who stands in the middle, while the goats are represented on His left by Aquarius (which itself is adjacent to the fish-goat Capricornus).

This is definitely an impressive sign with a lot of significance, but it is NOT the sign of the ark of the covenant. It shows the judgment and separation of the righteous and wicked and thus sets the stage for the ultimate throwing down of Babylon as indicated by the sign of the great millstone at the throne lines of May 20–23, 2021 when Saturn is sent retrograde. This is when the last segment of the clock will have arrived, and the last plagues without mercy will have reached their culmination. Therefore, Satan will be beaten back and all those who chose to put their faith in the arm of flesh, in the systems and powers of this world, will be overcome.

For Christ to win the victory, however, His people—His army—must overcome, and that begins now in autumn of 2020, not next year. Many are currently prophesying or speaking about the end of grace in one way or another, whether it be the closing of the Door of Mercy,[25] unequivocal pronouncements of judgments (not as warnings),[26] or even direct references to the closing of the books on Yom Kippur.[27] Before the final victory is contemplated, there must first be a victory shout of faith now by those who, prior to the closing of the books, have already been judged worthy of fighting in the last battle. Their shout of victory now corresponds to the shout of triumph over Jericho prior to the walls crumbling down. God has provided everything that is needed for victory, but His people must exercise faith and claim the victory that He makes possible.

Victory over the Beast

The great test that must be passed according to Revelation is to refuse the mark of the beast and worship the Creator. Many people are bracing themselves for the mark of the beast without realizing that it has already been implemented in the world for several years, depending on the country. The mark of the beast is same-sex marriage, and its legalization in a nation marks the turning point when that nation has officially received the mark. It happened in the United States in 2015, and many proprietors and conscientious people have already been raked over the coals and made a public example because of it. The 501(c)(3) churches have been pushed into LGBT non-discrimination because of it, and even the abomination of transgender church leaders—unthinkable in past generations and directly condemned by the Bible[28]—has reached virtually every organized church, usually through some liberal congregation somewhere, just to prove that the church accepts the law of the land. But those who hold the law of God above the law of man cannot “tolerate” a church that tolerates what God calls abomination, and therefore the call of the Lord in Revelation has been to come out of the fallen churches of Babylon.[29]

But Babylon is a conglomerate system that, when destroyed, will leave many caught unprepared to live without. Have you been able to avoid the mark? Have you realized that you cannot be in the Babylonian system and not get touched? The coronavirus crisis has already brought the world to the verge of giving away all freedom—even the freedom to decide what gets injected into one’s body by needle—in order to remain integrated in the Babylonian way of life, whether it is to attend sports games or worship services. The 144,000 need to understand these things!

Those who have gotten the victory over the beast are represented in Revelation as standing on the sea of glass (verse below). On the clock, this refers to the Saiph-Rigel segment, where the Orion Nebula stands as this “sea mingled with fire.” What could this sea of glass have to do with shouting the victory over Babylon, particularly in this autumn season? Revelation speaks about the victory that is celebrated on the sea of glass as follows:

And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. (Revelation 15:2)

This is the ONLY verse in Revelation where the word “victory” appears in the King James Version! But the Greek word for victory (G3528) used in the verse above appears a total of 15 times in Revelation, translated most frequently as “overcometh” but also as “prevailed” or “conquering.” Jesus Himself uses this word seven times in speaking to the seven churches about the promises to those who “overcome.” Those who overcome get the victory—it is the same word.

Keep in mind that the Israelites who surrounded Jericho shouted only at a certain time. The priests gave the signal, and then the people shouted; in this way, faith and obedience blended together. This means TIMING was of the utmost importance, and also today it is of the utmost importance to understand God’s timing, to carry out His commands on the battlefield at the right time. That is why He has given His calendar and clocks.

In that vein, it is important to notice that the victorious people of God do not necessarily have to stand “on” the sea of glass according to the Greek. The meaning of the word “on” (G1909) can be any of the following:

A primary preposition properly meaning superimposition (of time, place, order, etc.), as a relation of distribution [with the genitive case], that is, over, upon, etc.; of rest (with the dative case) at, on, etc.; of direction (with the accusative case) towards, upon, etc.: - about (the times), above, after, against, among, as long as (touching), at, beside, X have charge of, (be-, [where-]) fore, in (a place, as much as, the time of, -to), (because) of, (up-) on (behalf of) over, (by, for) the space of, through (-out), (un-) to (-ward), with. In compounds it retains essentially the same import, at, upon, etc. (literally or figuratively).

The Strong’s definition specifically allows this word to refer to time, and being that God has revealed so much about time through the Orion clock, as seen here for example in the relationship to the sea of glass, this would be the most appropriate understanding. God reveals His times through His clocks to help the 144,000 overcome in the hour of temptation that is upon the world, and it is perfectly valid to understand this verse as saying that the victorious saints stand “in the time of” (i.e. in the same segment as) the sea of glass.

Interestingly, the second possibility[30] for the Day of Trumpets on October 19, 2020 falls within this segment.

In the time of the sea of glass

So, does the verse suggest the second possibility for the Day of Trumpets as the prophetic day for the great victory shout? The basic question in this context is, “When is/was the great victory shout that precedes the fall of Babylon like the shout before the walls of Jericho fell?” This question is of the utmost importance because the victory shout is part of God’s plan for how Babylon is to fall, and all those fighting on the Lord’s side need to be clear on when this shout is to be made (or when it was made, for those reading this afterward).

One must also understand WHY to shout for victory. In the time of Jericho, it was a shout of faith, but God always gives evidence on which faith is to be based. Now, even before Babylon crumbles, God has given evidence in His word that the time has come for Babylon’s fall—tangible evidence reported in the news that will now be shown to corroborate all the prophetic indications that the end of mercy has indeed been reached.

On Yom Kippur, September 27/28, 2020, the press flared up with news about a clash between Armenia and Azerbaijan, two neighboring countries between the Black and Caspian Seas. These countries, once both part of the former Soviet republic, have been at war since the dissolution of the same, but what makes the flare-up on Yom Kippur this year significant is the fact that it was prophesied:

Lift up a battle flag; let it wave in the land! Sound the trumpetcall the nations together! Prepare the forces for battle against her; summon the kingdoms of Ararat, Minni, and Ashkenaz. Assign a commander to lead the troops against her. Send in the war horses, seething like bristly locusts. (Jeremiah 51:27 The Voice)

The Strong’s concordance defines Ararat as Armenia, and Minni as an Armenian province.[31] This verse—set in the overall context of Jeremiah’s last words[32] prophesying the fall of Babylon—is speaking about the summons to the final war, like the call to Armageddon, naming the very nation where this call would emanate from!

Armenia is one of the oldest Christian nations of the world and is called Ararat in the Bible because of its mountain range (extending into Turkey) where Noah’s ark once landed. In other words, it is the very origin or source from which the peoples of the world originally spread out, as explained in Bloody Waters. And this conflict has re-ignited at the sound of the jubilee trumpet, which was blown on Yom Kippur, just as the verse indicates! And wouldn’t our “Commander” Jesus Christ summon the troops against Babylon from a place where even today His own language that He spoke when He was walking this earth is still spoken?

Aramaic also continues to be spoken by the Assyrians of Iraq, northeastern Syria, southeastern Turkey and northwest Iran, with diaspora communities in Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan and southern Russia.[33]

On that very Yom Kippur, WhiteCloudFarm solemnly proclaimed the day of vengeance that would culminate in the seven last plagues, not knowing that they had been triggered by the conflict in Armenia that was just then hitting the press. (The video of that proclamation is included in the next section.) It is also interesting that efforts to resolve the issue through dialogue stopped in 2010, the year when the Orion message began:

Peace efforts in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, mediated by the Minsk Group, collapsed in 2010.[34]

Why this is a powder keg for world war is explained briefly by the fact that Turkey is allied with Muslim Azerbaijan (thus the reference to the locusts in the Bible text), and that Russia is the most active international player, while the U.S. is also a mediator in the conflict.[35] All of these parties have conflicting interests, and Turkey’s involvement—already having been accused of instigating this conflict—further erodes its NATO relationships, drawing Europe into the picture as well. All the underlying issues, including Iran,[36] have been brought to light in prior articles on WhiteCloudFarm, and now the flashpoint has been reached.

Is it becoming clear what the victory shout is really about and why the timing of it is so important? The first cracks in the walls of Babylon have appeared, and this biblical evidence is enough to shout the victory in faith, seeing that her fall has begun!

Keep in mind from the earlier observation above that the victory shout should fall within the Saiph-Rigel segment, because that would be “in the time of” the sea of glass, but it could NOT be before the Saiph point (October 5, 2020). For example, it would not have been possible to shout for victory on Yom Kippur, because that came before the sea-of-glass segment.

Finding the victory shout in Revelation 15 is quite surprising altogether, because this is the chapter that introduces the plagues. This verse comes after the great and marvelous sign (video) but before the plagues themselves are poured out. And if the victory shout is made “at the sea of glass” (i.e. no earlier than this Saiph point of October 5, 2020), then the plagues must begin sometime after that—in the victory cycle—and not in the segment from the left throne lines of September 3–6 to October 5, 2020 as hypothesized in The Coming of Christ.

As you continue reading, you will see that God has given an amazing revelation about the time of the plagues to guide His children during the darkest hour that is coming. Do you think the plagues could simply start one segment later, starting with the first plague in the Saiph-Rigel segment, and continuing around, with the seventh plague beginning at the second coming and continuing after the rapture? This is not such a bad thought, but we will soon see that the Mazzaroth—the Father’s clock—will provide the vital key to understanding the timing of the plagues, and once again it will be seen how precisely and harmoniously the Father’s and the Son’s clocks tick together. You will witness the accuracy of the Bible texts about the pouring out of the plague vials in the context of God’s clock once we delve deeper into this important topic.

In regard to the question of the victory shout, however, October 19 as proposed in the image above would be not only the second possibility of the Day of Trumpets but also the Gregorian anniversary of the prayer of Philadelphia for more time in 2016.[37] That would be a very fitting occasion for the victory shout, connecting it with the sacrifice of Philadelphia in 2016 that granted the time for the 144,000 faithful ones, so they could get ready to give a victorious loud cry in the final cycle on the divine Orion clock. But if the plagues were to start at Saiph (in order to have enough clock segments to come full circle in the victory cycle), then October 19 would be a somewhat late start for the first plague.

But what if Jesus wants to highlight another time, while still recognizing the sacrifice of Philadelphia? Perhaps it would be a good idea to look up what the anniversary of this sacrifice would be in terms of the biblical calendar, the understanding of which He has restored for man’s benefit! In the article The Hour of Decision, the sacrifice of Philadelphia that was made on October 19, 2016 is chronicled as happening on the third day of the feast of tabernacles, or in other words, the 17th day of the seventh month. This year, with the month beginning on September 19, 2020, the 17th day comes to October 5, 2020!

The 2020 anniversary of the sacrifice of Philadelphia

Can you imagine the joy it brings to the hearts of the “rescue team” who interceded with God on behalf of the 144,000, spending and being spent for their sake, to see that their efforts have borne fruit and their strenuous exertions were not in vain? There was a heroic battle for lives and souls—one that purchased the time for the 144,000 to get ready to fight in this victory cycle, equipped to overcome the enemy. Now the sacrifice of Philadelphia can finally be claimed as resulting in victory, because the 144,000 are being gathered to rise to the occasion of their high calling, now to win their own victory in this coming clock cycle. This 2020 Saiph point is the true biblical anniversary of the victorious end of the struggle in the sacrifice of Philadelphia! Thus, October 5, 2020 is indeed the ideal day for the victory shout! Then the 144,000 can take their “Jericho.”

Each of the days of the feast of tabernacles traditionally has one patriarch of Israel who “comes to visit” and teach something. In The Day of the Witnesses, there is a footnote about Jacob (the patriarch for the day of that sacrificial prayer) in the list of the “tabernacle guests” that provides a very important connection between the sacrifice of Philadelphia and the time of Jacob’s trouble:

It was on Wednesday, October 19, 2016, that we brought our prayer of supplication before God. It was the day of Jacob, who had been a “deceiver” and whose name was changed to “Israel” after his struggle with Jesus in the night, which means “God fights for us.” It is important that this Feast of Tabernacles entangled us in a struggle with our conscience, or with the Holy Spirit as the representative of Jesus. Like Jacob, we came out victorious from the battle, and God blessed us. The “fear in Jacob” is an Adventist term that refers to the struggle of the faithful against their own doubts and remaining sinfulness in the time of plagues. The prophecy was that we would be victorious, and that was fulfilled on Jacob’s day.

Ever since the closing cycle of the clock was first calculated, the little discrepancy that the Saiph point lands on the third day of the feast of tabernacles instead of the first or seventh day has been a point of study. Within the feast of tabernacles, this was the day to remember Jacob’s VICTORY that now begins the VICTORY CYCLE of the clock and falls on the Jewish anniversary of the sacrifice of Philadelphia.

After wrestling all night, Jacob was victorious with the angel, who was none other than Jesus. In the experience of many, recent years have been like that dark time (night) wrestling with the Lord for the end to really come and for Him to return. How many times have the saints been looking for the rapture and have faced disappointment, holding on and not letting go of Jesus? For followers of this ministry, this has been the time of wrestling with the Angel who stands in Orion. Cycle after cycle we have had to hold on and keep studying, not letting go—and now we have finally come to the time of “Jacob’s” victory with Jesus, which falls on the very date of the rider of the white horse[38] who “went forth conquering, and to conquer,” i.e. G3528—to get the victory!

Is that not enough reason for the victory shout to take place on October 5, 2020? But notice that if Revelation 15:2—when the saints had already gotten the victory over the beast and his mark and all those things—comes to pass on that day, then the mark, image, number and name of the beast must have already been in place and enforced prior to that, in order for them to have gotten the victory over it.

And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. (Revelation 15:2)

The test had to come beforehand, and this shows that no other mark-of-the-beast test is still to come in the future. The Sodomy-law test which has been the focus of warning since it came to the U.S. in 2015 and spread worldwide WAS (and IS) the test, and those who got the victory over it will now be protected from the literal plagues,[39] all of which are still to come in the flow of the prophecy.

For example, Pope Francis’ forthcoming encyclical, due to be signed on October 3, 2020[40]—two days before the victory shout—will NOT be a proclamation of a new mark of the beast. Two days’ time till October 5 would not be long enough to enforce and overcome such a test. On the contrary, seeing the verse in context confirms that the issue of the sanctity of marriage under God as the “twin institution” from Eden and the order of man and woman in contrast to all forms of gender confusion is really what made the test.

To set the stage for studying the plagues, let us pursue a better understanding of the context of Revelation 15:2 and how the rest of the chapter is fulfilling. The previous verse describes the great and marvelous sign of the seven last plagues,[41] which appeared[42] on August 20, 2018:

And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. (Revelation 15:1)

This sign appeared in heaven on a Saiph point, and now we see that the next verse, with the victory shout (verse 2), is also fulfilled on a Saiph point. This is a particularly important observation because it is a clue to understanding how to interpret more of the chapter, as there are other Saiph points in between these two dates. The relevant dates of the Saiph points are as follows:[43]

  • August 20, 2018 – the beginning of the plague cycle (verse 1)
  • May 6, 2019 – the beginning of the thunder cycle
  • January 20, 2020 – the beginning of the closing cycle
  • October 5, 2020 – the beginning of the victory cycle (verse 2?)

Could all of these Saiph points be represented in the texts? In the previous chapter of Revelation 14, it was recognized that each of the harvest verses correspond to a different moment in time[44]—could a similar scheme be used in chapter 15? Perhaps it would be a good idea to count how many Saiph points could be mentioned in chapter 15 before the plagues actually begin. The first four verses are as follows:

  1. And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.
  2. And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.
  3. And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.
  4. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.

After this, the context shifts to the outpouring of the plagues:

And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened: And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles. And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled. (Revelation 15:5–8)

Thus, logic would have each of the first four verses corresponding to one Saiph point, after which the plagues are poured out soon after the fourth Saiph point of October 5, 2020. This means verse 2 does not correspond directly to October 5, 2020 but indicates the beginning of a victory that carries on for three full verses. This is because after the great and marvelous sign, three cycles had to be overcome, i.e. three times the victory won.

Overcome, overcome, overcome!

After the first cycle of the plagues from August 20, 2018 to May 6, 2019, there was a wonderful expectation for the coming of the Lord at the end of the cycle that was not fulfilled. But those who gained the victory in that cycle could go on to the next cycle (that was the first victory). Then there was another time to overcome the thunder cycle (the second victory) on January 20, 2020, and again in the closing cycle that is wrapping up now (the third victory) as we approach October 5, 2020.

Jacob was also tested three times and had to overcome three times in his wrestling with Jesus. First, he wrestled and overcame (his first victory) until Jesus had to put his thigh out of joint. Then Jacob continued to wrestle with Him until He said, “Let me go” (second victory). Then Jacob still refused to let Him go except He would bless him (third victory). After this, he was given the name of “overcomer:”

And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed. (Genesis 32:28)

The threefold test corresponds to the cycle of plague SIGNS, then the thunders, then the closing cycle—all those cycles had to be overcome and victory claimed over them before the literal, destructive plagues would fall. Every victory comes at a Saiph point, and therefore the sea of glass is mentioned in the first of these three victory verses (but nevertheless applies to all three rounds that had to be overcome, including the last on October 5, 2020 as first recognized).

And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. [This corresponds to the first victory of May 6, 2019] (Revelation 15:2)

Coming after the mark of the beast, the mention of the harps refers to those (WhiteCloudFarm) who solve the mysteries of the book of Revelation, which commenced in the ensuing cycle as evidenced by the publication of The Finishing of the Mystery at that time.

And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. [This corresponds to the second victory of January 20, 2020] (Revelation 15:3)

This second of the three verses speaks of the song of sacrifice that both Moses and Jesus “sang” by offering their eternal lives for the salvation of others[45]—in which spirit the sacrifice of Philadelphia was made to buy time for the world. This relates to the thunder cycle through the mention of the “works” of God. These works are part of the oath of the angel standing upon sea and earth (the same angel whose voice was accompanied by seven thunders, for which the thunder cycle gets its name):

And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: 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 10:5–6)

The time that was bought through sacrifice is sworn to end when the mystery is finished, and that comes (at the latest) near the end of the third cycle where we are now.

Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest. [This corresponds to the third victory of October 5, 2020] (Revelation 15:4)

Notice that the third victory speaks of judgments being manifest already, because the coronavirus crisis has been “manifest” for a whole cycle since January 20, 2020. It is hard to deny any more that the world is already under judgment!

The way the trials of these three cycles were overcome is similar to how the thrice-mentioned hour of Babylon came three times in three consecutive cycles.[46] These were the three phases of “wrestling” like Jacob through the night.

These three “hours” of wrestling before the “hour” of victory are also corroborated by others, such as through the dream of William entitled The Wedding Is In One Hour! which he received on September 26, 2020. Understanding that the three cycles of the clock (as in the picture above) are hour cycles, meaning that one cycle corresponds to one hour, makes this dream a direct confirmation of the fact that Jesus is coming at the end of the victory cycle, i.e. after the fourth hour, 4:00 PM. The PM designation indicates the end of the cycle. At the present point in time, we have (almost) completed three hours, therefore it is currently 3:00 PM).

So far, the struggle in these first three cycles has only been the “little” time of Jacob’s trouble. When the plagues come literally, then it will be the “great” time of Jacob’s trouble. Three times the saints had to overcome in times of relative peace—the fourth time will be in the time of the physical plagues. Who slept through these three hour-cycles like the disciples of Jesus when He asked them three times in Gethsemane to watch for “one hour” with Him?

And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; ... (Mark 14:41)

The Sixth Seal

The transition into the seven last plagues of Revelation involves the sixth seal, which ends with these words:

For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? (Revelation 6:17)

In The Comet of Elijah, a seal chart was presented to summarize the latest understanding of the seals. It was indicated that the fulfillment of the beginning of the sixth seal was expected at the time of the throne line dates of the Orion clock, which correspond to September 3–6, 2020. What is the beginning of the sixth seal, and how did it fulfill?

There are many verses to the sixth seal indicating specific heavenly signs that will lead up to the return of Christ. Let us take it piece by piece in light of the newest prophetic understanding that has been published to date.

And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake… (From Revelation 6:12)

The first sign of the sixth seal is a “great earthquake.” Can we recognize a great “earthquake” in recent memory? Yes, in fact, the press was overflowing with news about it—and the aftershocks are still hitting the headlines on a frequent basis. The Harvest News article published about it on WhiteCloudFarm was even titled The Great Earthquake, though it wasn’t connected with the sixth seal at that time. It was about the riots that followed the killing of George Floyd on May 25, 2020 and the repercussions on the police (set in the context of Revelation 11, in that case). Has this not been the great earthquake of this year, having rippled throughout the world and led the United States to the brink of civil war? After hearing prophecies such as Suzanne Noel’s about Trump’s reelection and the United States splitting in half, it is not hard to imagine how this will end and why the BLM[47] riots are so important in connection with the sixth seal. Remember, the book of Revelation is written in symbolic language, so the text can certainly be fulfilled by something other than a literal earthquake! The “earth” in the prophecies of Revelation is normally the United States, and a “quake” is normally a shaking political event.

The political shaking of George Floyd’s death was a major event in connection with the sign of the ark of the covenant, which was formed in part by the new moon on the day the “earthquake” struck, May 25, 2020. The sign also centered on the ring-of-fire annular eclipse of June 21, 2020 and included other celestial events, which further suggests that the earthquake could be the one spoken of in the sixth seal, because the very next phrases of the sixth seal speak in terms that exactly describe such events:

…and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; (Remainder of Revelation 6:12)

The eclipses of the sign of the ark of the covenant Could the blackening of the sun and the moon becoming blood be a reference to the eclipses of the sign of the ark of the covenant itself? Remember, there are three eclipses involved in the sign. The first was the partial eclipse of the moon on June 5 in which about 40% was indicated as undarkened in representation of the first table of the law with the first four commandments. This would not qualify as a blood moon on its own, so we have to look further. And in any case, the first mention in the verse is of the sun, not the moon.

The second eclipse was the annular eclipse of the sun on June 21, 2020. This would certainly qualify as the sun becoming black. Then, could the lunar eclipse of July 5, which left about 60% undarkened, be the blood moon? It was certainly not a blood moon on its own, but as it fits together with the other lunar eclipse to symbolize the complete law of God, we have a total eclipsing coverage of 40% + 60% = 100% for both moons together. Thus, once the second moon came, it could be said that the equivalent of one complete lunar eclipse, or “blood moon,” had been reached.

So far, the sixth seal has a clear correspondence with the sign of the ark of the covenant. Does the next verse also have a recognizable fulfillment?

And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. (Revelation 6:13)

Continuing the progression of the heavenly sign of the ark of the covenant, the next great heavenly sign to appear was comet NEOWISE. Like with the great meteor storm of 1833 that was caused by comet debris, comets have long been understood in connection with this verse. The Elijah comet made its closest approach to the earth on July 23 as a sign of the angel of Revelation 18:1 that came down to the earth. This was at the position where the second covering cherub stands in the heavenly sign, complementary to the first covering cherub in the days when the great earthquake began as already mentioned.

The sixth seal events in relation to the ark of the covenant sign Thus, we are seeing a definite pattern in the fulfillment of the sixth seal verses over the course of the ark of the covenant sign, and we can even say now more precisely when the sixth seal began to open: it was May 25–27, 2020 when George Floyd was killed and the riots started, which is the anniversary of Christ’s death and resurrection and the conclusion of the Passion Week that marks the position where the first Anointed One stands in the sign of the ark of the covenant. This was the beginning of the opening of the sixth seal.

However, the verse(s) do not end there. What are the “untimely figs” that are cast off by a mighty wind? Jesus used the state of the fig tree as an indicator for summertime, noting that it was a parable, or story:

Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. (Matthew 24:32)

This refers to the summer season during which comet NEOWISE came and approached the earth as part of the sign of His coming the following summer of 2021. However, there is more that is indicated through the mention of the figs of the sixth seal. The various Bible lexicons say essentially the following:

The “untimely fig” is the fig which, having formed too late to ripen in the autumn, hangs through the winter, but almost always drops off before the sap begins to rise in spring, so as not to come to maturity.[48]

Could this be a sign of those individuals, those fruits, who did not avail themselves of the truth early enough to form a mature and holy Christian character before the critical season, before the throne lines of the Orion clock (September 3–6, 2020)? As September is passed and autumn has arrived, the time is extremely late. The prognosis is not very hopeful: these late ones “almost always” fall before reaching maturity—especially when the strong winds of persecution and conflict blow. To those who recognize themselves in this situation, hang on tight and don’t give up; everything that can be shaken will be shaken,[49] but hold fast because with God all things are possible.[50] Some might even be saved through the fire.[51]

Now that the throne line dates of September 3–6 have passed and the sign of the ark of the covenant has ended, the next part of the sixth seal is coming to pass:

And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together... (From Revelation 6:14)

In one sense, this was visibly fulfilled on September 3, 2020 when after many weeks in anticipation of the throne lines, the WhiteCloudFarm publishing team released its fourth book, which included all of the new study material that had been written since the Two Witnesses were published. Thus, a certain milestone was reached in the “closing of the books.” These books are especially about the heavenly signs that God has given in the book of Revelation to guide His people in the last days before the return of His Son, and thus it is quite fitting to say that “the heavens departed” like a book that is closed. It is the pages of only this book—the book of seven seals—that expound the divine messages that have been given to the world over the last decade, primarily through the constellation of Orion with the addition of the Mazzaroth.

The rolling together of the scroll has many implications. For example, it alludes to the coming silence in heaven of the seventh seal and to the outpouring of the seven last plagues in such a form that even worldlings will no longer be able to deny that the end has come and Jesus is returning. The apocalyptic imagery in the remainder of the sixth seal text makes this clear. Something is yet to happen that will reconfigure this world:

…and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. (Remainder of Revelation 6:14)

Remember, the prophecies of the Revelation are written in symbolic language. Mountains represent kingdoms, and therefore this symbolism is likely referring to a rearrangement of the macro power structures of this world. Powerful nations will fall, and those who are paying attention know that this is already happening on a grand scale as the world currencies are being deliberately blown out of control[52] with the coronavirus crisis as the pretext.[53] “Islands” are the smaller nations that will be equally shaken by these terrible events.

How will the world be reconfigured? Will the Chinese dump the dollar[54] and turn the United States from riches to rags? Will the United States happily surrender its position in the world, or will it fight with all the weapons it has at its disposal? Exactly how things will play out will be for Time to reveal, but the remainder of the sixth seal indicates that these happenings correspond to the time of the seven last plagues.

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 free man, 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? (Revelation 6:15–17)

We are not now in that time when all kinds of people are hiding in the caves, even if there are hints that the time is quickly approaching. First, the scroll must be completely rolled together, and this—as we have also discovered—takes a process of time. A book might be closed with one clasp of the hand, but a scroll takes a certain amount of rolling. The time for the rolling of the scroll is indicated on the Orion clock from the throne lines of September 3–6 to the Saiph point of October 5, 2020 that marks the end of the closing (!) cycle and the beginning of the victory cycle. This timeframe has largely been the time for the development and publication of the material contained in this correspondingly named article.

On the day when the time for the victory shout was discovered—September 12, 2020—the great controversy, as represented in heaven, took a final, decisive turn as Jupiter ended its retrograde motion and turned forward again to pursue the victory over Saturn, as depicted in the heavens on December 21, 2020.[55] After the group in Paraguay had come into the temple of the White Cloud Farm for worship on that Sabbath day, the inspiration came to Brother John to speak “on camera” the following solemn message, even before he shared many of the insights presented in study on that day. He had the idea to roll up the vows of Philadelphia’s time-buying sacrifice that was made four years prior to the beginning of the victory cycle, and at the same time, proclaim the beginning of divine vengeance (the plagues) upon the world, when Jesus will fight against the systems and people of Babylon and overcome Satan.

This video message, recorded right after the sign of the ark of the covenant and the publication of the four books, serves as a solemn and official proclamation of the changes in the times which the world is now entering upon. It was released to the public at the beginning of Yom Kippur on September 27, 2020—the day that the spark in Armenia lit the powder keg, marking the divine decision day that is transitioning the world into a new phase of the end-times: the time of God’s destructive judgments.

The Mystery of Godliness

A certain work still remains to be done, even in the time of the seven last plagues. The ones who will perform this work—for whom the sacrifice of Philadelphia was made—had to get ready in the time that was granted. As it is for everyone, however, their preparation of character needed to be finished before it was too late, and as the seventh trumpet began to sound in the closing cycle of the Orion clock, the time had come for the oath of Revelation 10 to be fulfilled:

And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: 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 10:5–7)

Notice that this mighty angel swears that two things will happen at this time: first, that the anterior era would constitute a hiatus in open time prophecy[56] which would by implication end in the time of the seventh trumpet, and second, that the mystery of God would be finished by then.

For those who have been following the finishing of the mystery from the beginning,[57] you know that it is connected to the knowledge of the time of Jesus Christ’s return—a mystery that has been kept secret since the foundation of the world. That time was found during (and because of) the sign of the ark of the covenant, which spans precisely the timeframe in question for the seventh trumpet, but such a technical explanation does not alone capture the depth and significance of what this oath means.

More broadly, the finishing of the mystery has also been understood as the deciphering of the book of Revelation. However, this broad definition of the mystery cannot be exactly what is meant here because the seventh trumpet has now already finished sounding, and as you can see in this article, there are still some significant prophecies (e.g. in Chapter 15) that were not well understood within that timeframe. This should not be a surprise for anyone who understands the progressive nature of divine revelation, but unless we chalk up the newest discoveries only to the rolling together of the scroll, it does show that the mystery that is/was finished must be something other than the solving of all of Revelation’s riddles—including how and when the plagues are poured out without mercy. After all, the redeemed will be learning for all eternity.[58]

The text seems to suggest that the mystery should be finished near the beginning of the seventh trumpet, although the process of finishing could also take time. This leaves some ambiguity as to exactly when the mystery must be finished and how long that finishing takes. It is only certain that it begins to be finished at or near the beginning of the seventh trumpet (April 27–29, 2020) and that it should be finished within “the days of the voice of the seventh angel,” (i.e. by September 3–6, 2020) which is also the overall span of the ark of the covenant sign.

To understand what the oath of Revelation 10 is talking about, one must ask: how does the Bible define the mystery of God? There are some specific mysteries defined in the book of Revelation, such as the mystery of the seven stars and the mystery of the great whore, but since the book does not directly define the mystery of God, it must be found in other parts of the Bible.

The apostle Paul speaks of the mystery of God in the following way:

Whereof I am made a minister [i.e. of the church], according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God; Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus: Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily. (Colossians 1:25–29)

Here Paul declares that he fulfilled the mystery, working according to the works of Christ who worked mightily in him. The mystery that was sought from the foundation of the world was the incarnation of Christ, the Desire of Ages. But then, how can Paul say that he fulfilled the mystery? It is clear that Paul was not referring to the incarnation of Christ per se, but to something that he personally fulfilled. Similarly, the mystery of God in Revelation 10 (which was a future prophecy) was obviously not finished or fulfilled by Jesus’ birth.

Paul was a sermon in shoes. He fulfilled the word of God, “even the mystery,” by how he lived, and he presented himself as an example of the manifestation of “Christ in you.”[59] This is also an example of the fulfillment that we have been looking for in the seventh trumpet timeframe according to the prophecy of Revelation 10. As Paul fulfilled the mystery, so others who are presently living must also fulfill the mystery, and this must have started to happen near the beginning of the seventh trumpet timeframe.

A natural question would be, if Paul fulfilled the mystery, why wasn’t the mystery of Revelation 10 fulfilled in the time of Paul? The answer is that for the divine purposes, one man (Paul) wasn’t enough to meet the criteria to “finish the mystery,” in the broad sense of Revelation. Then the question becomes, how many “Pauls” would have been needed? That answer is found plainly stated:

And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name [i.e. character, conformity to the Law, Christlikeness] written in their foreheads… And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. (Revelation 14:1, 3)

Jesus came to redeem man from the degradation of sin and to show the way of obedience through faith. But he could not believe FOR the people or obey FOR the people; to everyone that He healed, He said THY faith hath made thee whole, and they had to act (obey) according to their faith. This is contrary to the idea that if you only believe, it doesn’t matter how you live after that (i.e. once saved, always saved). The 144,000 fight against that lie. Each one must see Jesus and make his own choice to follow Him and purify his character in the blood of the Lamb that was slain for one’s own sins. This is righteousness by faith that works obedience in the believer, and this is what Paul exemplified and preached among the saints.

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. (Galatians 2:20)

But for the end of the world to come, the Kingdom of God needs to be fully “staffed” according to the divine purposes. There need to be 144,000 Christlike ones—144,000 “Pauls”—who are ready like him to suffer anything it takes for the sheep under his care, whether it cost reputation, income, or even life itself. Paul’s sacrificial willingness went as far as a desire to forgo eternity itself, if his brethren could be saved as a result.

I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost, That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart. For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh: Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen. (Romans 9:1–5)

This is the spirit of the sacrifice of brotherly love and a living demonstration of Christ’s sacrificial character in his life. It was an offering not tainted with covetousness for reward.

Can you say the same as Paul? Do you qualify as one of the 144,000?

Those who have developed such a character as Christ’s have become like Him. Christ is manifested in them and they have become Christlike. And the development of 144,000 such living examples like Paul means the mystery of God is finished.

The character of Jesus Christ is also reflected in the law—the Ten Commandments—which were on display in the heavens through the sign of the ark of the covenant, with the two partial lunar eclipses making up the two tables, one penumbra leaving 40% exposed in representation of the first four commandments and the other leaving 60% for the other six commandments. The ark with its two tables of stone were brought out during the time of the seventh trumpet when the mystery of godliness was to be finished.

Thus, what was manifested in the heavens during this time was not just the ark of the covenant per se but the finishing in that timeframe of the transcription of the character of God in the hearts of all the 144,000 Christlike ones who walk in obedience to the Law through the power of Jesus. This makes the covenant itself the context of the oath of Revelation 10 and the finishing of the mystery.

At the beginning of this timeframe in the Christian world (beginning April 27, 2020), many began to take a stand for obedience to the law of God in humility, even unto death, and they began to suffer persecution as a result. The OSAS peddlers,[60] who deny that obedience or works of faith figure into salvation, waged a war of defamation against those who read their Bibles and care about what is written there. May God ever strengthen those who feel a sense of duty to uphold the law of God and obey what Christ commands!

It is simply ludicrous to think that salvation by faith alone somehow obviates the need for obedience or repentance when the Word of God states the truth so plainly throughout. This craziness even drove the apostle James to sarcastically commend those who “only believe,” saying they were as good as devils:

Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? (James 2:19–20)

A person who takes no action to repent of their sins shows that they do not understand God nor why Jesus went through the experience of Gethsemane and suffered crucifixion on behalf of sinners. For them, the mystery of godliness is definitely still an enigma.

This taking of sides between those who obey the Decalogue versus those who nail it to the cross has great implications in terms of Bible prophecy, because a certain time was allotted for final decisions to be made: the seventh trumpet timeframe. Despite the enormity of God’s love, there is a limit to His forbearance because His patience IS for sinners to repent; when there is and will be no more repentance, then it is time for justice to be served. Since the seventh trumpet has already finished sounding, it means that the living 144,000 in this generation are all accounted for, and Jesus can now (or soon) begin to pour out the seven last plagues.

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 finishing of the mystery was therefore hinging on whether there would be enough people in this last generation to stand faithful to God and reflect His character fully. When this is the case, then the end comes because the mystery of godliness is perfected in the 144,000 Christlike ones of Revelation.

Therefore, in Revelation 15, those who got the victory over the beast and his image and the number of the name give praise. They sing the victory because they have overcome the world and reflect the character of Christ. The 144,000 have all been sealed and stand united, ready to give the loud cry of the third angel:

And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. (Revelation 14:9–12)

There was a window of opportunity; the mystery had to be manifested in the 144,000 on the earth by the close of the seventh trumpet, September 3–6, 2020. Those who have not obeyed the voice of God and do not reflect His law in their character, still being spotted with the world, have fallen short of Christ, and the mystery of godliness is not fulfilled in them.

The numbers of this company [the earnest, praying ones] had lessened. Some had been shaken out and left by the way. The careless and indifferent, who did not join with those who prized victory and salvation enough to perseveringly plead and agonize for it, did not obtain it, and they were left behind in darkness... {EW 271.1}

Those who are only now getting ready are probably too late. At least it can be said that they are not part of the 144,000. Such ones who had the advantage of the truth are now in a precarious situation, because mercy is at its end for those who had this opportunity.

The broken ranks will be filled up by those represented by Christ as coming in at the eleventh hour. There are many with whom the Spirit of God is striving. The time of God’s destructive judgments is the time of mercy for those who have [had] no opportunity to learn what is truth. Tenderly will the Lord look upon them. His heart of mercy is touched, His hand is still stretched out to save, while the door is closed to those who would not enter. Large numbers will be admitted who in these last days hear the truth for the first time.—Letter 103, 1903. {LDE 182.2}

Thus, there is still hope of salvation for those who did not yet have an opportunity to learn the truth, but with the end of the seventh trumpet, the opportunity to be among the 144,000 passed, and the number was made up. That was the finishing of the mystery: “Christ in you.” This is much deeper than knowing a date or solving the technical details of a prophetic mystery. It is about formation of character and about finding Christ’s character manifested even in a world that is permeated with confusion and rebellion. God is showing that even in a world where the mark of the beast is universal, the disease of sin still evokes an “immune response” powerful enough to combat the evil. Jesus came to overcome. He came to be victorious over sin, but not for Himself! He came to teach us how to overcome and gain the victory.

Jesus paid the price for our sins—that is what the atonement of this season[61] is all about—but reconciliation with God is pointless if it does not lift up the sinner out of his degradation. Jesus came to give the victory to the fallen race, but if nobody would have followed His example and chosen to overcome the world as He overcame it, then what would He have died for? He came to show the way so others would follow in like manner—to overcome too, to be victorious over sin in the same way, with the same faith He exercised, which is what it means to be Christlike. The finishing of the mystery of godliness is deeply spiritual!

The end of the world can only come when there are enough people (namely 144,000) who fully reflect the character of Christ, and based on prophecy, that milestone was reached as of September 3–6, 2020 as the sealing of the 144,000 ended and the mystery of godliness was finished in the living 144,000 of this last generation on earth.

Now in the time of trouble that is beginning, they must stand true to their calling. These will go forth to make the loud cry of the third angel, and thus the ranks of the redeemed will yet be filled by many others who will obey the call of the Lord, the call that accompanies the loud cry:

In the eighteenth chapter of the Revelation the people of God are called upon to come out of Babylon. According to this scripture, many of God’s people must still be in Babylon. And in what religious bodies are the greater part of the followers of Christ now to be found? Without doubt, in the various churches professing the Protestant faith.—The Great Controversy, 383 (1911). {LDE 197.4}

I saw that God has honest children among the nominal Adventists[62] and the fallen churches, and before the plagues shall be poured out, ministers and people will be called out from these churches and will gladly receive the truth. Satan knows this; and before the loud cry of the third angel is given, he raises an excitement in these religious bodies, that those who have rejected the truth may think that God is with them. He hopes to deceive the honest and lead them to think that God is still working for the churches. But the light will shine, and all who are honest will leave the fallen churches, and take their stand with the remnant. {EW 261.1}

The excitement raised by Satan serves as a sign that confirms where we are in the flow of end-time events. Have you seen this “excitement,” which suggests that God is still with the fallen churches? One such excitement is called “The Return” (video)—not a message about the return of Jesus Christ, but a message designed to bring people back into the churches to band together for political advantage. It appeals to the honest desire of many who see the need for reformation and a return to God in the United States of America, but it works against the Lord’s call to come OUT of Babylon.

The end result of this type of reformation—a warning for those watching Dana Coverstone as well—is that although certain victories might be won by this means (such as on the issue of abortion, for example) the uniting of the churches with the political powers to “return to God” in this way will ultimately have a persecuting effect in the end, as history warns, for those who conscientiously stand apart from the united churches in order to obey God and His law without any compromise.

Such action would be directly contrary to the principles of this government, to the genius of its free institutions, to the direct and solemn avowals of the Declaration of Independence, and to the Constitution. The founders of the nation wisely sought to guard against the employment of secular power on the part of the church, with its inevitable result—intolerance and persecution.... But the inconsistency of such action is no greater than is represented in the symbol. It is the beast with lamblike horns—in profession pure, gentle, and harmless—that speaks as a dragon. {GC 442.2}

Those who, like the pope, emphasize unity without changing doctrine are promoting a false sense of unity which the Protestant fathers refused at all costs, because it led to terrible persecution! May the Lord open the eyes of the honest ones who are thus tempted to trust in the arm of flesh—in the numbers of their armies—instead of the living God.

It required a desperate struggle for those who would be faithful to stand firm against the deceptions and abominations which were disguised in sacerdotal garments and introduced into the church. The Bible was not accepted as the standard of faith. The doctrine of religious freedom was termed heresy, and its upholders were hated and proscribed.

After a long and severe conflict, the faithful few decided to dissolve all union with the apostate church if she still refused to free herself from falsehood and idolatry. They saw that separation was an absolute necessity if they would obey the word of God. They dared not tolerate errors fatal to their own souls, and set an example which would imperil the faith of their children and children’s children. To secure peace and unity they were ready to make any concession consistent with fidelity to God; but they felt that even peace would be too dearly purchased at the sacrifice of principle. If unity could be secured only by the compromise of truth and righteousness, then let there be difference, and even war.

Well would it be for the church and the world if the principles that actuated those steadfast souls were revived in the hearts of God’s professed people. There is an alarming indifference in regard to the doctrines which are the pillars of the Christian faith. The opinion is gaining ground, that, after all, these are not of vital importance. This degeneracy is strengthening the hands of the agents of Satan, so that false theories and fatal delusions which the faithful in ages past imperiled their lives to resist and expose, are now regarded with favor by thousands who claim to be followers of Christ. {GC 45.2–46.1}

The time has come for the real Return—the return of Christ, not a return to prosperity, which is what so many are in fact praying for. It is time to make bold moves in answer to His call. It is time to step out (of Babylon) in faith and put your full trust in God, not in fallen churches and political powers, but armed with all the panoply that He provides through His chosen instruments. This involves taking a stand for truth without fear of the repercussions, which are often felt most keenly from one’s closest associations.

I heard those clothed with the armor speak forth the truth with great power. It had effect. Many had been bound; some wives by their husbands, and some children by their parents. The honest who had been prevented from hearing the truth now eagerly laid hold upon it. All fear of their relatives was gone, and the truth alone was exalted to them. They had been hungering and thirsting for truth; it was dearer and more precious than life. I asked what had made this great change. An angel answered, “It is the latter rain, the refreshing from the presence of the Lord, the loud cry of the third angel.” {EW 271.2}

The Seven Last Plagues

The time of God’s destructive judgments, which is a time of mercy for those who had not the opportunity to learn what is truth, can come only after the victory shout. And with the victory shout so powerfully confirmed for October 5, 2020, this means the scheme for the plagues—God’s destructive judgments—has not been discovered or confirmed yet. Again, what was hypothesized in The Coming of Christ—namely that each plague would occupy the spaces of one of the seven remaining segments of time on the Orion clock from September 3, 2020 till June 21, 2021—needs to be revised based on a victory shout on October 5, 2020.

The amazing revelation of the timing of the seven last plagues according to the Father’s clock is part of the announcement of the year of vengeance, and therefore it pertains to the second anointed one to deliver it. But the discovery of the timing of the plagues is given through God’s word in a way that anybody can confirm it with their own Bibles or could have even discovered it on their own.

The messenger does not have an unfair advantage in that respect, any more than Jesus had an advantage when He was on earth clothed in humanity. One of the biggest deceptions in the Christian world is the teaching that Jesus had an advantage in resisting sin compared to us, that He came in the likeness of Adam before the fall. This is directly contrary to the Bible.

For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (Romans 8:3–4)

This truth—that Jesus came in the likeness of sinful flesh, not like Adam before the fall—is the cornerstone of righteousness by faith, because it implies that if Jesus could overcome the world in sinful flesh, then we can overcome it too, whereas the corrupted teaching implies the opposite: if Jesus had the advantage of a superior nature, then probably we sinners don’t stand a chance to overcome. The logic is not consciously thought out, but the doctrine changes the thinking in a subtle way to undermine victory over sin.

The same principle applies to the second anointed one, who also came down from heaven to be incarnated as a human being.[63] As a man, he does not have any advantage either. He has to study the Word of God to understand His will in the same way every Christian does. The books that he has written testify to the effort put forth to discover the precious truth. This is something that anyone could have done; he had no advantage.

Therefore, as a messenger of God, knowing how important it is to follow God’s timing, he studies and re-studies as we all must do to keep our lamps trimmed and not lose sight of the Way. The reward for this effort is that the truth is developed and refined and God’s presence and leading continues to be known. Each step forward in truth opens the way for the next step, and thus the victory shout being on October 5, 2020 opens the way for a better understanding of the plagues, which must begin on or after that date.

In this context, we are speaking about the plagues being poured out “without mixture” i.e. without mercy. There have been many signs and the world has received many a foretaste of the plagues already[64] which have corroborated the clocks of God and given insight into the prophecies of the Revelation, but so far “the worst is yet to come.” It is that “worst” that is the present subject.

It has come to this because the mark of the beast has been implemented and the New World Order is acting to enforce it. When the sins of the people reach as high as heaven, this is the point at which God says He will intervene. It was so for Sodom and Gomorrah, and it is so with antitypical Babylon.

The substitution of the laws of men for the law of God, the exaltation, by merely human authority, of Sunday [or Sodomy] in place of the Bible Sabbath [or Bible marriage], 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.—Testimonies for the Church 7:141 (1902). {LDE 135.5}

Three cycles of the plague clock before victory Three cycles of the plague clock passed before it came to this. In the cycle that is now ending, the first wave of the coronavirus crisis has already been changing the world, and the second wave is already starting, but so far no one has tasted the plagues without mercy.

The “time of trouble, such as never was,” is soon to open upon us; and we shall need an experience which we do not now possess and which many are too indolent to obtain. It is often the case that trouble is greater in anticipation than in reality; but this is not true of the crisis before us. The most vivid presentation cannot reach the magnitude of the ordeal. In that time of trial, every soul must stand for himself before God. “Though Noah, Daniel, and Job” were in the land, “as I live, saith the Lord God, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness.” Ezekiel 14:20. {GC 622.4}

When things get worse than you anticipated and the trouble defies description, then it could be the plagues. When God reveals Himself in His majesty to mete out recompense to this world, it will not be a light thing. The wrath of God comes to destroy those who destroy the earth,[65] and that means the seven last plagues could better be compared to seven mass extinction events that will result in the masses becoming extinct. Then will be a time when every soul will be wrestling with God not like Jacob wrestled with a friendly opponent, but to face the judgment bar of God alone without the intercession of Jesus. Then it will be seen what type of character has been developed.

On the Sabbath of September 12, 2020 when the Lord began guiding the studies contained in this article, He also led in the opening of the Scriptures to Isaiah 6. This chapter describes Isaiah’s vision of the Lord, and his commission.

In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. (Isaiah 6:1–4)

Isaiah beheld the throne room in heaven and the Shekinah glory of the Father. When he saw these things in vision, he exclaimed “Woe is me!” He recognized that a sinner cannot see the Father and live. But is it any different now? Are you ready for God to reveal Himself in the seven last plagues, as He is about to do?

This verse is speaking about the scene that follows where we left off in Revelation 15, which also describes the throne room, where the ark of the covenant resides, and mentions the smoke in the temple:

And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony[66] in heaven was opened: And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles. And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled. (Revelaion 15:5–8)

This scene follows after the victory shout, which has been deciphered in fulfillment of the first part of Chapter 15 as corresponding to October 5, 2020. This means these verses (including the seven last plagues) should fulfill subsequent to that day. But who are the seven angels? Which of the four beasts delivers the vials of wrath? What are the vials (or bowls)? When will each of the seven vials of wrath be poured out? The answers to these questions will show how God’s clocks are the backdrop for understanding how prophecy fulfills. Without them, it is not possible to fully understand the message of the Revelation.

This prophecy speaks of scenes in heaven because it is describing heavenly signs, i.e. heavenly time markers on God’s clock. A person needs to look in the heavens to see and understand the prophecy. All of the “tools” necessary to understand this prophecy have been explained in past sermons and articles; all we need to do is follow the text very carefully, and we will find exact dates and events described in the heavens.

First, it says “after that,” these things were seen. After what? If the previous scene of the victory shout corresponds to the date of October 5, 2020 as already discovered, then “after that” must be thereafter. So, all we have to do is “look up” on that date (in Stellarium or any other planetarium software) and try to see what John, the apostle, and John, the messenger, both saw on the firmament.[67]

Question: where in the sky should one look? Answer: where the ark of the covenant can be seen in the heavenly temple, as the verse hints. We recently had a magnificent sign of the ark of the covenant centered on the annular solar eclipse of June 21, 2020. On that day, the sun was leaving Taurus, the constellation that stands for the temple (or altar).[68] This would be a good place to look, if one wants to look in the direction of the temple in heaven.

Searching for the sign of the opening of the temple

Here we see the first “star”[69] entering the temple (Taurus) as of October 5, 2020. On the Mazzaroth clock of the Father, the altar aspect of Taurus also serves in this case to allude to the sacrifice of Philadelphia, the (Jewish) anniversary of which falls on this date. On the Orion clock of the Son, this date corresponds to the Saiph point. In fact, in Jerusalem, it is already close to sunset as the moon crosses into Taurus, which means we are looking at the first day “after that,” i.e. on October 5/6—the next biblical day after the victory shout—exactly as we should be, according to the text.

However, the verse speaks of the temple being opened and angels coming out, so we need to keep looking for the first possible time when a planet comes out of the temple. This happens on the left, where the ecliptic crosses the galactic equator, right at the left border of Taurus,[70] on the date of October 8, 2020:

Over the threshold of the temple

Now the moon is at the threshold of the temple. Remember the verse of Isaiah that said the threshold would shake?

At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke. (Isaiah 6:3 NIV)

The shaking of the heavens refers to the scrolling back and forth in time, causing the heavenly bodies to move back and forth along their paths of orbit in accordance with God’s word.[71] Therefore, Isaiah’s mention of the shaking of the threshold of the temple is a marvelous description of the movement of the moon with the attention on this point in the sky, where the “threshold” of the galactic equator is. The heavenly language of God’s word is perfectly illustrated on the celestial canvas.

As an initial observation, this would seem to be the moment when the door is open and the first angel appears at the threshold to carry his vial of the wrath of God out of the temple and pour it over the earth. As you will see later, there is an incredible amount of depth of significance to this heavenly sign, which the rest of this article is mostly devoted to, and a great deal of scriptural details that will come together. However, it will require some patience to build up the complete understanding.

The first step is to consider the timing of the plagues, all of which need to logically fit within the context of the victory cycle. This process of coming to the threshold of the temple and pouring out the plague would need to be repeated seven times—once by each of the plague angels carrying his respective vial of wrath. Approximately every month (or to be exact, once every sidereal month) the moon comes again to this same position in the heavens: to the threshold of the temple. Thus, it would take roughly seven months for all seven angels to carry out their vials and pour them upon the earth. The dates of these “threshold” moments would be roughly as follows (times are approximate):

  1. Thursday, October 8, 2020 at 7:00 p.m.
  2. Wednesday, November 4, 2020 at 11:00 p.m.
  3. Wednesday, December 2, 2020 at 7:00 a.m.
  4. Tuesday, December 29, 2020 at 12:30 p.m.
  5. Monday, January 25, 2021 at 9:00 p.m.
  6. Monday, February 22, 2021 at 7:00 a.m.
  7. Sunday, March 21, 2021 at 1:00 p.m.

Some of those dates might already catch one’s eye. For example, the second plague begins the day after the U.S. presidential election on November 3—an event that others are also having dreams and warnings about, a couple of which have already been mentioned. This plague speaks of the blood of a dead man:

And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea. (Revelation 16:3)

In earlier phases of the plagues, this verse was already interpreted in connection with Jamal Khashoggi’s murder, which the U.S. was especially instrumental in dismissing and playing down in order to maintain its good relations with Saudi Arabia and its $350 billion arms deal, the preservation of which obviously served to pervert justice in this case.

A wicked man taketh a gift out of the bosom to pervert the ways of judgment. (Proverbs 17:23)

How will God reward the world and especially the United States and its president for this scandalous perversion of justice on the world stage—allowing “Mr. Bone Saw” to walk away from brutal premeditated murder unpunished?

The second plague was also connected with Adolf Hitler, a figure many fear is returning to head the United States. And what will become of the blood of George Floyd and the rioting associated with it, after election day? November 4 certainly seems like a “good” day for the beginning of the second plague.

Ultimately, it devolves upon the 144,000 to watch how the plagues unfold and draw the correct conclusions, but at this point, let us focus on the big picture. Interestingly, the temple (Taurus) remains free of any other planets during the entire timeframe of the plague dates outlined above, with one exception. This corresponds to the fact that “no man was able to enter the temple” during that time. The one planet that does enter Taurus in that timeframe, does not symbolize a person. It is Mars, seen approaching near the “temple” as the moon comes the sixth time (for the sixth plague):

Gathering for war

The “war planet” signifies exactly what the sixth plague speaks about:

And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. (Revelation 16:12–16)

Thus, the presence of the red planet just about to enter the temple area signifies the preparation and gathering for the battle of Armageddon! And after the sixth plague has run its course and the seventh angel is ready on March 21, 2021 to pour out his vial, then Mars is right over the table of the altar in the middle of Taurus. Thus, Mars’ unique presence serves to signify the last great battle of the seventh plague. It serves as positive evidence that this is indeed the sign of the fulfillment of these Scriptures.

We have only begun to see the beginnings of this (sevenfold) sign, but it is worth emphasizing at this point that the more “coincidences” one finds that fit the biblical prophetic language, the more impossible it is that the sign could be mere chance and the more certain it is that God’s voice is speaking. So far, we were able to follow the textual indications to identify the beginning of the sign, and now Mars has confirmed the sixth and seventh plagues.

But notice how long it takes for all seven judgments to have begun their work over the world. In particular, look at the date when the vial of the seventh plague has returned to the “temple” area, when the moon has run its course and returned to Taurus:

The jubilee after the seven plagues have struck the earth

The moon returns to the “temple” again on exactly April 14, 2021—the first day of the biblical year and the day of the 1890 jubilee!!! It is another amazing “coincidence” that the jubilee begins when the seventh plague has been poured on the world, because then the judgments and vengeance of God will have ramped up to the full. Jesus is fighting the war and winning the victory! This does not mean the judgments are over, but there will be a decided victory in the battle of Armageddon and the people of God will have cause to rejoice, even amidst the unimaginably trying circumstances. We will come back to this theme in more detail later but let us now summarize the timing that has been revealed so far.

The beginnings of the seven last plagues

There is still much to discover about this sign. The “coincidences” and scriptural harmonies will build even more. The prophecies of the Bible are trustworthy, and when influenced by the Holy Spirit one reads the Word of God together with the book of nature, He reveals His plans to His servants.

Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. (Amos 3:7)

The Silence in Heaven

The shaking of the threshold mentioned by Isaiah (which yielded the times when each plague begins) is not the only link to Revelation 15 in that verse;[72] he also saw the smoke filling the temple. This smoke is from the glory of God, and therefore it spans the entire time when the temple is inaccessible.

And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled. (Revelation 15:8)

Does this mean that the smoke spans from October 8, 2020 to April 14, 2021? Could this smoke—which, if imagined literally, would fill the sky and obscure the heavens from view—be related to the silence in heaven for the space of half an hour? This silence is also broken by the voice of God, which speaks once again when the “smoke” begins to clear:

Dark, heavy clouds [smoke?] came up and clashed against each other. The atmosphere parted and rolled back; then we could look up through the open space in Orion, whence came the voice of God… {EW 41.2}

The parting of the clouds at this time is corroborated by the prophecy about the confusion of the wicked upon hearing the voice of God (i.e. the time message), and also suggests that the wicked continue to suffer under the seventh plague even (more so) after the jubilee has begun:

Then commenced the jubilee, when the land should rest. I saw the pious slave rise in triumph and victory and shake off the chains that bound him, while his wicked master was in confusion and knew not what to do; for the wicked could not understand the words of the voice of God… {EW 35.1}

So, the jubilee is connected to the voice of God, which is heard when the clouds finally part, and this would indeed be April 14, 2021 as already recognized. Remember, the discovery of the sign of the jubilee on April 14 opened some questions, one of which was: how could there be a heavenly sign during the silence in heaven, if the silence in heaven means that the heavens do not speak during that time?

And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. (Revelation 8:1)

Some possible solutions to this could be that the half an hour of silence was not correctly placed yet[73] or that the silence is meant for a different one of the three heavens. As far as the timing is concerned, the ambiguity as to which clock is used to measure the half hour leaves a couple of options. As we have already suggested, it could refer to half a round on the Orion clock, which is about 130 days. But it could also be about half a round of the Mazzaroth clock, for which there is an interesting approximation from the ring-of-fire eclipse of June 21, 2020 to a similar solar eclipse on December 14, 2020. This is also very nearly half a round, and it is even partly aligned with the Mazzaroth “throne lines” (i.e. the galactic equator). But are either of these the half an hour that is meant?

With regard to the silence in heaven, we have three options, because “heaven” can mean the air where the birds fly, or it can mean outer space where the stars and planets are, or it can mean the realm where God and the angels live. Which of these spheres is the one that will be silent for the half hour?

Perhaps the solution can be found by considering the situation of the plagues and the temple in heaven, which no man could enter while the temple was filled with smoke. From October 8, 2020 to April 14, 2021 there are 188 days. This is also very close to half a round on the Mazzaroth clock. One cycle of the sun around the Mazzaroth is 365 days, so half an hour[74] is about 183 days, which leaves a difference of only 5 days—definitely close enough to qualify as “about half an hour” on the Mazzaroth clock according to the words of the Bible!

If these are the days of the silence in heaven, then it becomes clear what, specifically, the silence is talking about: there is a victory shout on October 5, 2020, then it gets quiet on October 8 and remains so for the duration of the plagues as the judgments of God are falling. Meanwhile, every bated breath is wondering, “who shall be able to stand?”—until the wrath has been poured out and the righteous are released on April 14, 2021, when the great jubilee celebration breaks the half hour of silence again. Shouts of victory mark both ends of the silence! And now it is clear which heaven is meant: it is the third heaven, the realm of God and the angels who watch in awful silence as the Lord performs His strange act—the act that the so-called “love gospel” denies He is capable of:

For the Lord shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act. (Isaiah 28:21)

But the silence in heaven is also reflected on the earth. The people of God who long pleaded with the world will also maintain a low profile during this time, as it is prophesied:

Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. (Isaiah 26:20)

Note that the indignation against the wicked never ends until they are destroyed; this verse is referring to when the indignation is past for the saints and the jubilee begins on April 14, 2021.

Thus saith thy Lord the Lord, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken out of thine hand the cup of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of my fury; thou shalt no more drink it again: But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee; which have said to thy soul, Bow down, that we may go over: and thou hast laid thy body as the ground, and as the street, to them that went over. (Isaiah 51:22–23)

As the silence is broken with the shouts of liberation, the nearing return of Jesus is welcomed by His overcomers. They are relieved from drinking the dregs—the depth of meaning of which will be seen in the last section of this article. From the jubilee on, there will be no more doubt that Jesus is on the way!

The Angel of Wrath

Some important questions have been answered through the sign of the pouring out of the seven last plagues, but there are still some basic elements of the texts to be clarified. Who exactly are the seven angels who pour them out? What are their vials?

And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles. (Revelation 15:6)

In the great and marvelous sign[75] (August 20, 2018) both the angels and the vials were identified.

The great and marvelous sign of the seven last plagues

In the present sign, there is only one moving heavenly body for all seven plagues: the moon. The moon was previously the vial for the fifth plague upon Ophiuchus (the serpent bearer, symbolizing Pope Francis), which is easily seen as a vessel that can go from “empty” to full as it changes phases, making it a perfect symbol for the vials of plagues.[76] But if the moon stands for the vials, who are the angels who hold them?

The Angel who carries the vials of the plagues A straightforward look at any of the pictures of the moment when the threshold is crossed for the outpouring of each plague already offers an answer: it is the hand of Orion that reaches up at the point where the galactic equator crosses the ecliptic and holds the moon as it exits Taurus over the threshold of the door!

Orion symbolizes Jesus as the High Priest; in ancient Israel, the high priest wore pure white linen garments on the Day of Atonement.[77] A description of Jesus as the High Priest is given at the beginning of the Revelation:

And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. (Revelation 1:13)

This is the description of Jesus as represented in the constellation of Orion, and thus it is none other than Jesus Himself who pours out the seven last plagues. Why is He represented as seven angels? Seven is the number of perfection and thus the number of Jesus. It is the day of His vengeance; behold the wrath of the Lamb! The gentle Jesus who for so many years interceded for humanity will now be the Destroyer under whom the rejecters of His grace must suffer.

Jesus drank the cup of wrath that humanity deserved, and the Father also was made to be His Enemy on the cross, hiding His face from His beloved Son because of the sin that was imputed to Him. Now those who have rejected His long intercession are left to drink the cup He willingly drank for them. Oh! How precious His sacrifice now appears!

Jesus receives one plague after another in His hand and pours it over the earth. One Jesus is symbolized by seven angels, because seven times Orion takes and pours out a vial. From whom does He receive it? Which of the four beasts around the throne puts it into His hand? It is now self-evident that it is the beast like a calf—Taurus[78]—who delivers the vial (the moon) into Orion’s hand. Jesus receives each plague across the horns of the altar because it was His sacrifice that gives Him every right to pour out the plagues upon those who rejected His offer of salvation. Whereas He suffered the wrath of God unjustly, His judgments upon the wicked are perfectly warranted.

The Orion message affirms that Jesus Christ entered the most holy place of the heavenly sanctuary in 1844, where He interceded on behalf of sinners to cleanse them from their sin. On the Orion clock, however, Saiph—the white horse star that represents the pure gospel—points to 1846 when the law of God was restored to His people in its entirety, including the fourth commandment to worship the Lord on the seventh day of the week (sundown Friday to sundown Saturday).[79] The law of God is the standard of holiness and purity that His people need to reach, and now it is the same standard by which the world is judged.

This interval—between the beginning of the investigative judgment, when the great 176-year antitypical Day of Atonement began in 1844 and the restoration of the Sabbath in 1846—has a counterpart in the victory cycle that can be seen by visually comparing the same gap on the judgment cycle to the victory cycle, revealing another significance in the brief time between the victory shout and the outpouring of the first plague:

Comparison of the start of the judgment and victory cycles

The date of October 8, 2020, when the heavens show the first angel pouring out the first plague after the victory shout, aligns perfectly when compared to what was seen at the beginning of the investigative judgment. Now the “executive” judgment (the plagues) falls on the same mark on the clock! The timing of the executive judgment is following the pattern of the investigative judgment, and this is not just one more “coincidence” that shows that the Orion clock is ticking with divine accuracy, but it also emphasizes once more that the One who now punishes is the same One who previously interceded for man, and His judgments are righteous and just, based on the same Ten Commandments that everyone who fears God should know and hold.

Everything God does is perfect; both of His clocks tick in perfect synchronization through the victory cycle, from this beginning point at the white horse star on October 5, 2020, all the way around again to the end on June 21, 2021.

Points of synchronization between the Mazzaroth and the victory cycle

The Mazzaroth and the Orion clock give a united testimony that no man can gainsay, because it is the voice of God speaking through the things He created, which no man can lay his hand upon to change. But those who understand His clocks have the privilege of knowing His plans and participating in them, and therefore the significance of the plagues beginning on October 8 goes even deeper.

These plagues would have come sooner.[80] The sinister plans that are being put into force by the powers of modern-day Babylon have been in work for some time. Agreement on the New World Order was reached by the powers of the world in 2015,[81] and what is being put into effect now, urged by the coronavirus crisis, could have been implemented then by force. The pope—the same one who addressed the joint session of the U.S. Congress and the United Nations General Assembly around the Day of Atonement that year—is currently following up five years later with the implementation details.[82] Some articles directly connect this year’s message back to his speech in 2015.[83] The fall of Jerusalem in AD 70 is a type for this: the Roman army first came to besiege the city in AD 66 (under Cestius), then retreated for no explicable reason, only to return again (under Titus)—from whom there was no further escape.[84]

Why did it take five years for God to reveal Himself and intervene to destroy the modern Tower of Babel? It was because of the sacrifice of Philadelphia—made on behalf of the many souls who did not yet recognize what had happened and how they had been deceived and misled and kept uninformed. This is the sacrifice associated with the vows that were “rolled up” in the earthly reflection of the heavenly temple on September 12, 2020, shown via video. This is the sacrifice whose anniversary is recognized by the divine clock through the Saiph point of October 5, 2020, which begins the victory cycle during which the plagues will now physically be poured out. The plagues that would have begun on October 25, 2015 according to Plan A were deferred until October 8, 2020: a total of about 5 years. A similar deferral of JCPOA and the Iran crisis goes right along with this.

It so happened that on October 25, 2015, one believer in the Orion message ceased to believe because the plagues did not materialize in the expected way. His exclamation was: “There is still grace,” and therefore the message was wrong, he reasoned. He had fixed his opinion based on sight but was blind to how the Lord had been leading so powerfully all along. The ironic thing was that in his unbelief, he actually uttered the truth that there was still grace—but the grace was not for him, unfortunately, because in that same moment, he rejected the truth that he had had the opportunity and privilege to know.

A similar thing is happening now, and the entire story is connected from beginning to end through the parable of the fruitless fig tree.

He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down. (Luke 13:6–9)

There is a detail in this parable which is easily overlooked unless the reader puts himself in the shoes of a Jew. We have often cited this parable as granting one extra year of mercy after three years of caring for the tree. However, there are more than three years implied in this story, because no good Jew would ever seek fruit in the first four years:

And when ye shall come into the land, and shall have planted all manner of trees for food, then ye shall count the fruit thereof as uncircumcised: three years shall it be as uncircumcised unto you: it shall not be eaten of. But in the fourth year all the fruit thereof shall be holy to praise the Lord withal. And in the fifth year shall ye eat of the fruit thereof, that it may yield unto you the increase thereof: I am the Lord your God. (Leviticus 19:23–25)

This means that the fig tree that was planted in the vineyard of the parable must have been in the ground and under the care of the gardener for four full years BEFORE the owner ever sought fruit for himself in the fifth! The parable spans a period of eight years in total!

With this in mind, it is easy to see how the judgment of the living that began in 2012 according to the first foundational studies of the Orion clock and the Vessel of Time (i.e. Prophesy Again…) was the beginning of the parable that ends now in the year 2020 to 2021. Keep in mind that Jewish years are aligned by the seasons beginning with spring. Thus, we could outline the parable as follows, with each year indicated by its spring season:

  • Spring 2012 planting – no harvest in mind
  • Spring 2013 counted as uncircumcised
  • Spring 2014 counted as uncircumcised
  • Spring 2015 counted as uncircumcised
  • Spring 2016 fruits are holy to the Lord
  • Spring 2017 first year seeking fruit
  • Spring 2018 second year seeking fruit
  • Spring 2019 third year seeking fruit
  • Spring 2020 last season to check, from then on cut the tree down by allowing the devastation to begin with the coronavirus crisis

This parable of the Lord gives the same testimony of His return as the clocks of God because it comes from the same Source. The heavenly clocks were made by His hand and speak His truth!

Now the last year of waiting (spring 2019 to spring 2020) is over and the harvest season (until autumn 2020) is nearing its end. The decision was made in spring 2020—the churches have not been bearing fruit. Jesus is therefore coming back, one way or the other: the good trees of His kingdom will be gathered (in the rapture) and the bad tree(s) have begun to be cut down (the case of the wicked). Therefore, the 144,000 must use every moment during this time to fulfill their high calling and gather all fruit bearing trees during the loud cry, worthy of the great cost that the Lord planted them with. It is for their benefit that the Lord has given all the light and truth of the heavenly scroll, to equip each and every one whom He gives the privilege of participating in His great plan of salvation.

The parable of the fruitless fig tree teaches us of an offering to the Lord that would correspond to when the church of Philadelphia offered their sacrifice in 2016. The story of that amazing experience in the seventh month and culminating during the feast of tabernacles is told especially in the Day and Hour articles of the four-part article series about the Sacrifice of Philadelphia, the first set of articles written for the website that was opened as a result of that sacrifice.

In The Day of the Witnesses, a very special divine proclamation is included, which was made on October 8, 2016 (exactly four years before the beginning of the seven last plagues). It was entitled “The Everlasting Covenant” and included critical knowledge of the time of Jesus’ arrival that meant the difference between salvation or destruction—eternal life or eternal death—for each one of God’s children.

Many people still had stains on their spiritual garments and were not ready for the coming of the Lord. They would have perished if He had returned in all His glory, and they were not sealed with the knowledge of the day of His return. This life-or-death implication was the motivation for the sacrifice that was made days later—the sacrifice that bought the time for other “fruits” of the Lord’s vineyard to mature. The Mosaic law already pointed to that sacrifice of these fruits of the fourth year, 2016, reserving them as holy to the Lord and destining them for His service alone.

Now in the year 2020 on the anniversary of that proclamation, the plagues begin to fall. And as it was four years ago, so it is again: only those who have prepared themselves ahead and have been sealed will be able to go through the plagues without harm.

A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. (Psalm 91:7)

Are you among the sealed? Are you ready to face the worst time in the history of the world?[85] Now every soul will face the trial that had been postponed.

October 8, 2020 also falls within the feast of tabernacles. It is significant that both October 5 and 8 fall within the feast: the former on the third day of the feast, for which Jacob is the sukkot guest,[86] and the latter on the sixth day of the feast, for which Joseph is the sukkot guest. These visitors allude to Jacob’s wrestling with the Lord as a type for “the time of Jacob’s trouble” and to Joseph who was blessed with the bounties of the everlasting mountains (the rich knowledge of the heavens).

Joseph is a type for the second anointed one, who proclaims the day of wrath just as the delivery of the everlasting covenant of October 8, 2016 foreshadowed. Today, the covenant has been removed from the ark and put on display in the heavens. In the sign of the ark of the covenant, the moon represents the two tables of stone. The Ten Commandments are the unchanging law of God and thus the rule by which men are judged. Is it any surprise, then, that the moon has an instrumental role in the outpouring of the seven last plagues? Could it hold even more surprises?

Like a Woman in Travail

The length of the jubilee cycle—recurring every 49 years[87]—is such that unless something tragic happened to cut a person’s life short, everyone would get to experience the year of release at least once in their lifetime. Those who lived to an age much above 50 years would even have the opportunity to experience the jubilee twice. To look at it another way, anyone who is above that age today for the great jubilee of the end of the world—including Brother John—has already had the chance to experience a “foreshadowing” of the jubilee once before, 49 years prior.

With the coming of Jesus in the summer of 2021, one can calculate the prior “jubilee” by simply subtracting 49 from that year: 2021 – 49 = 1972.[88] Brother John was twelve years old that year and remembers it well. As a Munich boy, he had a free pass to many of the Olympic events that were scheduled to take place in his hometown that year. Of a fluke, one of the torchbearers who was jogging through the city called him to bear the torch running for about a hundred meters—a fitting omen of the lifework he would later embark upon, after his conversion, to bring the light of God to the world as the one who would fill the position in the Kingdom of God that Lucifer’s fall left vacant.

A terrorist of the Munich Massacre But that joyful and exciting season of the Olympic games was turned to sorrow as Palestinian terrorists killed 2 and took 9 Jewish athletes hostage in an attempt to negotiate the release of 234 prisoners held in Israel. The Munich security forces were not trained for such a situation, and mistakes resulted in the loss of all 9 remaining hostages. This high-profile tragedy shocked the world and caused nations around the globe to mourn, as the unimaginable trauma that had been brought to the world tore away the sense of peace and trust and community that had previously existed. This served to plant the fearful specter of terrorism in the public mind and catapulted the Israeli-Palestinian issue onto the world stage, with the Israeli athletes’ “martyrdom” for peace winning the world’s sympathy for their cause.

Those who lived through this experience, like Brother John, remember it well—much like some of us remember another 9/11, which happened exactly 29 years to the day after the close of those 1972 Olympics.

Now in the present year, one jubilee cycle later, Israeli and Palestinian peace is one of the defining issues. Peace and cooperation agreements have already been signed between Israel and two other nations from the Arab world.

For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3)

On the High Sabbath of September 19, 2020—the Day of Trumpets—the “woman with child” was identified and there was a breaking forth of even greater insight into the moon’s role in the plagues. As the moon was sighted on the temple grounds in Paraguay the night before, it was noted that the first crescent of the moon was at that moment in the womb of Virgo, meaning she was “with child.”[89] This resulted in the day being quite literally the day of the “birth” of the newborn moon, which isn’t a particularly frequent occurrence. Could this sign of the new moon of the feast of trumpets that was “born” from Virgo have a deeper meaning?

Like a woman in travail

The positions of the other planets in the scene also have a story to tell. Mercury, the messenger angel, is in the hand that holds the spike of wheat. This could allude to the harvest of the end of the world, knowing that the reapers are the angels.[90] Furthermore, the sun as the Bridegroom stands as the head:

For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. (Ephesians 5:23)

How often is a Day of Trumpets new moon sighted in the womb of Virgo, born on the same day, with the sun at the head, and an angel in the hand as a reaper? This is really a wonderful sign that indicates that the great reaping has begun, and the church has been crowned with Christ as its head. This is the church in the light, knowing her time, as it is said:

But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. (1 Thessalonians 5:4–5)

If a person goes through the recent years, he will find a few similar occurrences of new moon sightings in the womb of Virgo on the Day of Trumpets that might qualify. We found just a few, checking as far as about 30 years back:

  • Sept. 21/22, 1998 – borderline case, Mercury is at the head
  • Sept. 18/19, 2001 – almost identical
  • Sept. 16/17, 2004 – includes Mars and Jupiter, but no angel as a harvester
  • Sept. 21/22, 2017 – marginal fit with Jupiter near Spica, not Mercury (disqualified because of the Revelation 12 sign)
  • Sept. 29/30, 2019 – Venus/Mercury at hand/Spica, sun and Mars in head section
  • Sept. 18/19, 2020 – original pattern

And in the future, the next candidates would not be until 2036 and 2038.

There are a couple of interesting observations that can be made from these years. An almost identical sign happens in the year 2001, just a week after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. This alludes not only to terrorism’s role in the years leading up to the saying of “peace and safety” but also to the foreshadowing “jubilee” of the 1972 Olympic Games and the terror that then began.

But it is significant that there tends to be a number of years between each occurrence until the very end, when there are two candidates back-to-back in the years 2019 and 2020. This “doubling” is an indication that the plagues to be poured out in the coming months are the double reward for the sins of Babylon. Indeed, the coronavirus crisis and all the other plagues that have previously been identified in fulfillment of the Scriptures already count toward Babylon’s reward. This is important because it means that the plagues that are about to fall will be the completion of Babylon’s punishment and there won’t be another second pass after that.

In prophesying that the end will come as travail upon a woman with child, Paul was borrowing symbolism from the other Scriptures that connect the travail to the gathering exactly as can be seen fulfilling today. For example, Jeremiah spoke of travail as follows:

Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither. (Jeremiah 31:8)

This is clearly speaking about the gathering of God’s people. The entire chapter is about the return of God’s people from captivity and the restoration of the land. The year of vengeance against the wicked is also the year of salvation for the righteous[91] who will ultimately inherit the heavenly Canaan if they remain faithful through the plagues.

The Ten Plagues of Egypt

In the section on the seven last plagues, the time of the outpouring of each one was shown according to the heavenly symbolism described in Revelation 15.

…These plagues enraged the wicked against the righteous; they thought that we had brought the judgments of God upon them, and that if they could rid the earth of us, the plagues would then be stayed. A decree went forth to slay the saints, which caused them to cry day and night for deliverance. This was the time of Jacob’s trouble… {EW 36.2}

The remnant church will be brought into great trial and distress. Those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus will feel the ire of the dragon and his hosts. Satan numbers the world as his subjects. He has gained control of the apostate churches; but here is a little company that are resisting his supremacy. If he could blot them from the earth, his triumph would be complete. As he influenced the heathen nations to destroy Israel, so in the near future he will stir up the wicked powers of earth to destroy the people of God.—Testimonies for the Church 9:231 (1909). {LDE 256.1}

These plagues will be worse than a person can possibly imagine. It will be a time of trouble “such as never was, nor ever shall be.”[92] That means the worst massacres, the worst disasters, the worst plagues and epidemics and famines throughout history cannot evoke a sense of how horrible this time will be.

If even the people of God could be utterly tempted like Job to “curse God and die,” how much more will the wicked blaspheme God at that time?

Think about it. If in some places the people do not know where to bury the dead now because of the coronavirus, imagine what will happen when people are dying en masse! The people won’t be buried fast enough to prevent the stench of rotting corpses from filling the air, and the world and its infrastructure will be so destroyed that the people will defy God and blaspheme Him, knowing that they are wasted, just as it was in the days of Egypt when they told Pharaoh, “knowest thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed?”[93] If there is anarchy now, and riots now, what will be then!?

…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!”

Those who had not prized God’s Word were hurrying to and fro, wandering from sea to sea, and from the north to the east, to seek the Word of the Lord. Said the angel, “They shall not find it. There is a famine in the land; not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but for hearing the words of the Lord. What would they not give for one word of approval from God! but no, they must hunger and thirst on. Day after day have they slighted salvation, prizing earthly riches and earthly pleasure higher than any heavenly treasure or inducement. They have rejected Jesus and despised His saints. The filthy must remain filthy forever.”

Many of the wicked were greatly enraged as they suffered the effects of the plagues. It was a scene of fearful agony. Parents were bitterly reproaching their children, and children their parents, brothers their sisters, and sisters their brothers. Loud, wailing cries were heard in every direction, “It was you who kept me from receiving the truth which would have saved me from this awful hour.” The people turned upon their ministers with bitter hate and reproached them, saying, “You have not warned us. You told us that all the world was to be converted, and cried, Peace, peace, to quiet every fear that was aroused. You have not told us of this hour; and those who warned us of it you declared to be fanatics and evil men, who would ruin us.” But I saw that the ministers did not escape the wrath of God. Their suffering was tenfold greater than that of their people. {EW 281.1–282.1}

It was noted that the vial of the seventh plague (i.e. the moon) had returned to Taurus (as the temple) on the very day of the new year and beginning of the 70th jubilee on April 14, 2021. However, the beginning of the jubilee year does not mean the plague is finished. What would you expect to happen in the world from that time on? Let us follow the counsel given long ago:

We need to study the pouring out of the seventh vial [Revelation 16:17-21]. The powers of evil will not yield up the conflict without a struggle. But Providence has a part to act in the battle of Armageddon. When the earth is lighted with the glory of the angel of Revelation eighteen, the religious elements, good and evil, will awake from slumber, and the armies of the living God will take the field.—The S.D.A. Bible Commentary 7:983 (1899). {LDE 251.3}

This reference to the glory of the angel of Revelation 18 speaks of the seventh plague at the time indicated on the clock, but it warns that the battle of Armageddon is not yet over after one month. But there will be a supernatural intervention, because “Providence has a part to act.” There will be a resurrection and the awakened armies of God will take the battlefield.

When from that day it becomes obvious that Jesus is coming, the people of the nations will be even more furious. After seven months of plagues have already been poured out and many, many people have died as a result, the wicked who have been robbed of their loved ones and put under the most severe want and suffering will manifest intense hatred toward God and want to fight against the coming Jesus and even kill Him, if it were possible.

No, the seventh plague is not over in a month. First, it is poured out on the “air:”

And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air… (Revelation 16:17a)

The air is where the birds fly, and it stands for the realm of the angels. In the timing of the seventh plague, this corresponds to March 21, 2021 and forward…until the realm of the “air” has passed. The pattern for understanding the times of the victory cycle is the sign of the ark of the covenant. In the sign, comet NEOWISE became visible as a symbol for the angel of Revelation 18 coming down to the earth. It became visible to the naked eye in early July, no later than July 8. As a pattern, this suggests where on the clock the seventh plague should begin.

The realm of the air Subtracting 259 days from the beginning of the seventh plague on March 21, 2021 to find out exactly where in the sign of the ark of the covenant this falls, one arrives at July 5, 2020. This is remarkably close to when the comet came around the sun and became visible, corresponding to the air, the realm of the angels. But it is also the day of the second penumbral eclipse of the moon that represented the second table of the law. Thus, the beginning of the seventh plague corresponds to the complete revelation of the Law of God, therefore it is the “seventh” (the completion) of the plagues. God judges the world in righteousness by His law!

But the “air” segment continues, like in the pattern. NEOWISE made its closest approach to earth on July 23, 2020 as a symbol of the angel of Revelation 18 coming down to earth. This is the position in the ark of the covenant sign where the second covering cherub stands. So, the first part of the seventh plague (affecting the air) must still be going on by the corresponding time (April 8) in 2021, because it is still in the realm of the angel. But the comet remained visible for a time after that, through the end of July 2020, which corresponds to the 1890 point on the clock (April 14, 2021). So, just the first half of the first verse brings us through the first month of the plague, and perhaps even a little further.

Then the second half of the verse indicates the next point on the clock:

…and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. (Revelation 16:17b)

The mention of the great voice out of the temple and from the throne indicates the throne lines of May 20–23, 2021. This is the beginning of the new timeframe of the Seventh-day Adventist Church’s coronavirus-postponed General Conference Session, which has the motto “Jesus is coming! Get involved!” The logo for this Indianapolis event even looks like it has something to do with a “victory lap,” but who will gain what victory? Who among the nominal Adventists even knows that the Session dates of May 20–25 are the anniversary of the Passion of the Lord, who was crucified on May 25, A.D. 31?

So far, the text fits perfectly with the clock, and this is the point where mercy’s plea has finally died away. As the 144,000 had to be sealed by this point in the previous cycle, now all the subjects of God’s kingdom have been determined.

At this point, every last one who refused to leave Babylon will ultimately perish in her overthrow, as there will be no more leaving. The utter end of mercy is attested by the following verses:

And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. (Revelation 16:18–19)

And during this time (from the throne lines of May 20–23 to the Saiph point of June 21, 2021) reference is made to the sixth seal, which then closes:

And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. (Revelation 16:20)

Finally comes the great hail, which corresponds to the rapture and final deliverance of the saints on June 21, 2021.

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)

Everything fits the Orion clock perfectly, but what about the sign of Revelation 15 and the moons? How can this rather long seventh plague be harmonized with the sign of Orion (as the seven angels—particularly the seventh) carrying the moon (as the vial) out of Taurus (as the temple) to pour it out? Now we have some additional moons to add for the remainder of the seventh plague:

  1. Thursday, October 8, 2020 at 7:00 p.m.
  2. Wednesday, November 4, 2020 at 11:00 p.m.
  3. Wednesday, December 2, 2020 at 7:00 a.m.
  4. Tuesday, December 29, 2020 at 12:30 p.m.
  5. Monday, January 25, 2021 at 9:00 p.m.
  6. Monday, February 22, 2021 at 7:00 a.m.
  7. Sunday, March 21, 2021 at 1:00 p.m.
  8. Sunday, April 18, 2021 at 12:00 a.m.
  9. Saturday, May 15, 2021 at 4:00 a.m.
  10. Friday, June 11, 2021 at 8:00 a.m.

It is striking that there are exactly three more moons that can be added to the original seven, thus accounting for a total of ten plague moons, as there were ten plagues sent upon Egypt. This also shows once again that the law of God is the standard of judgment; there are ten plague moons as there are ten commandments. This revitalizes what was discovered in Babylon Is Fallen! – Part II, particularly how the ten commandment-months of judgment are illustrated by the historical capture and later return of the ark of the covenant.

Ten months of judgment for the Ten Commandments

Although this picture pertained to a different timeline, one can easily recognize in it the present distinction between the first seven plague-moons and the additional moons of the seventh plague marked in red in the list above.

Thus, the seventh plague fills up the judgment for the whole law—completing the judgment for all ten of the commandments. There are ten moons, with the tenth “month” being ten days till the rapture of God’s people on June 21, 2021. It is simply not possible to miss the number ten here! And as the last three moons follow the jubilee beginning when the people of God are released and the wicked are in confusion,[94] this is how God puts a difference between His people and the wicked in a complementary way to how He put a difference between the children of Israel and the Egyptians during the ten plagues of Egypt.

In the sign of the ark of the covenant, the moon’s role in representing the tables of the law also involved the percentage of it that was eclipsed by the earth’s penumbra. God designed for the percentage of illumination of the moon to carry a message; everything in the realm of God’s design has meaning.

A rough list of the percentage of the moon that is illuminated at each the “vial” is poured out is as follows:

October 8, 2020 63.7%
November 4, 2020 84.2%
December 2, 2020 97.2%
December 29, 2020 99.5%
January 25, 2021 90.3%
February 22, 2021 72.1%
March 21, 2021 48.9%
April 18, 2021 26.1%
May 15, 2021 9.1%
June 11, 2021 0.6%

First of all, notice that the percentages are generally over 50%, meaning each plague vial is well over half full, as would be expected as a measure of the severity or reach of the plague. However, this is not the case with the seventh plague, which begins with only 49%, and the values decrease from there. What can we learn from these numbers?

Taking the seventh plague as a whole, the percentages would be added together, resulting in the following:

48.9% + 26.1% + 9.1% + 0.6% = 84.7%

This is quite remarkable, being that all other moons are over 50% illuminated and therefore could not be added together in any arrangement without resulting in a plague cup that is filled greater than 100%. But the seventh plague moons are all below 50% and add up to a number that is still under 100%. This shows that the seventh plague indeed spans several months, while none of the others do. It also shows that the seventh plague vial is indeed filled to an amount comparable to the others, but it is poured out in increments.

The way that the amounts decrease to zero illustrates how the cup of God’s wrath is emptied completely and every last drop is poured out. The 0.6% are therefore the bitter dregs, poured out at the last!

For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them. (Psalm 75:8)

The last moon corresponds to June 11, ten days before the coming of Jesus, and thus these bitter ten days are also the ten days of Smyrna’s most severe persecution that God has shortened from the UN’s Decade of Action, as previously explained, lest no hearts of flesh would survive.

The dregs of the Lord’s wrath are the last part of the seventh plague: the great hail, which is so bad that the people blaspheme God because of it. This is the culmination of His strange act at Gibeon:

For the Lord shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act. (Isaiah 28:21)

And the Lord discomfited them before Israel, and slew them with a great slaughter at Gibeon, and chased them along the way that goeth up to Bethhoron, and smote them to Azekah, and unto Makkedah. And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Bethhoron, that the Lord cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died: they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword. (Joshua 10:10–11)

Now do you understand how God will remove the cup from the trembling lips of His people if they repent?

Thus saith thy Lord the Lord, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken out of thine hand the cup of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of my fury; thou shalt no more drink it again: But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee; which have said to thy soul, Bow down, that we may go over: and thou hast laid thy body as the ground, and as the street, to them that went over. (Isaiah 51:22–23)

The suffering will be ten times worse upon all those false pastors who spoke smooth words to their flocks and led them down the broad way that leads to destruction!

In addition to these things, the percentages for all the plagues could have a correspondence with the reach of each respective plague. One notices that the percentage increases up to the fourth plague, which reaches 99.5% coverage of the world. This is the plague of the scorching sun—which will affect virtually everyone:

And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory. (Revelation 16:8–9)

By contrast, the first plague (at 63.7%) reaches primarily “earth” areas, those who have the mark or image of the beast, a comparatively smaller number:

And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image. (Revelation 16:2)

The second plague reaches farther (84.2%) by affecting all those near the sea:

And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea. (Revelation 16:3)

The third plague, affecting the rivers, reaches almost everyone (97.2%), because rivers reach almost everywhere:

And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. (Revelation 16:4)

Then after the fourth plague, the numbers begin to decrease again for the fifth plague (affecting the beast kingdom again) and the sixth plague (focused on the region of the Euphrates—the Middle East), progressively smaller regions.

Finally, the seventh plague reaches 84.7%. That means the remainder are those who will survive unaffected by the seventh plague: 100% – 84.7% = 15.3%

Those who are familiar with the prophetic significance of Jesus’ last fishing expedition with His disciples will recognize this as indicative of the number of fish caught by the disciples at sea with Jesus’ divine help from shore.

Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken. (John 21:11)

Jesus stands in Orion, and from there—from the heavenly shore—He leads His people today just as He led them so long ago. Have you caught any fish lately, He asks? If not, don’t worry—just cast your net where He tells you from Orion, and work together with the Fisher of men.

This number has another significance, being 144 + 9. One of the many facets of the mystery of the Holy City is that God has appointed 144 leaders over the multitudes (thousands) who will inhabit that celestial city. These are the leaders (great fishes) who must work together with the other 9 who are included in the number of those “in the net.”

These 153 “fish” are the ministers that Jesus holds in His hand, symbolized by the moon that Orion reaches out to and guides on its way.

“These things saith He that holdeth the seven stars in His right hand.” Revelation 2:1. These words are spoken to the teachers in the church—those entrusted by God with weighty responsibilities. The sweet influences that are to be abundant in the church are bound up with God’s ministers, who are to reveal the love of Christ. The stars of heaven are under His control. He fills them with light. He guides and directs their movements. If He did not do this, they would become fallen stars. So with His ministers. They are but instruments in His hands, and all the good they accomplish is done through His power. Through them His light is to shine forth. The Saviour is to be their efficiency. If they will look to Him as He looked to the Father they will be enabled to do His work. As they make God their dependence, He will give them His brightness to reflect to the world. {AA 586.3}

These ministers must come through the time of the plagues victorious, working faithfully in cooperation with the Lord, as the seven stars of the Mazzaroth work in cooperation with the cogwheel of Orion. The wheel in a wheel[95] is an illustration of the harmonious cooperation of the Kingdom of God.

To the prophet, the wheel within a wheel, the appearance of living creatures connected with them, all seemed intricate and unexplainable. But the hand of Infinite Wisdom is seen among the wheels, and perfect order is the result of its work. Every wheel, directed by the hand of God, works in perfect harmony with every other wheel. I have been shown that human instrumentalities are liable to seek after too much power, and try to control the work themselves. They leave the Lord God, the mighty Worker, too much out of their methods and plans, and do not trust to Him everything in regard to the advancement of the work. No one should for a moment fancy that he is able to manage those things that belong to the great I AM. God in His providence is preparing a way so that the work may be done by human agents. Then let every man stand at his post of duty, to act his part for this time, and know that God is his instructor. {GW 489.1}

As the Son works in perfect harmony with the Father, so God’s children must work in perfect harmony with their Lord. This is what the victory cycle teaches us more than any other cycle: the Orion clock ticks in perfect order with the Mazzaroth, and this is how the leaders of the church must work together with Christ.

Do you fully understand what this says about the 153 fish? The only ones who can stand through God’s wrath till the very end—even when the dregs are wrung out—are those who have the faith of Jesus and keep His commandments, His law. Only those who have developed a Christlike character will come out unscathed, though not limited to their 153 leaders:

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. (Psalm 91:5–7)

And when all the saints are raptured in the air on June 21, 2021 and their time on this old earth is no more, then the wicked will be full of fury at each other. They will pine away and destroy one another until there are none left.

My attention was again directed to the earth. The wicked had been destroyed, and their dead bodies were lying upon its surface. The wrath of God in the seven last plagues had been visited upon the inhabitants of the earth, causing them to gnaw their tongues from pain and to curse God. The false shepherds had been the signal objects of Jehovah’s wrath. Their eyes had consumed away in their holes, and their tongues in their mouths, while they stood upon their feet. After the saints had been delivered by the voice of God, the wicked multitude turned their rage upon one another. The earth seemed to be deluged with blood, and dead bodies were from one end of it to the other. {EW 289.3}

Can there be any other ten-month period with such clear signs aligning so well with the prophetic symbolism, with so many significant messages embedded in it, confirming the times and seasons that God has put in His power? Is more evidence needed than what God has provided so abundantly in His heavenly books?

The time has come to roll up the scroll and let the judgments of the seven angels of vengeance begin. God has revealed what His people need for the last cycle, and His books contain the understanding to grant the 144,000 to indeed stand faithful through the time ahead, leading to righteousness and gathering the souls of those who flee from the mark of the beast and refuse to receive Satan’s DNA into their character as the loud cry swells.

The voice of God speaking through His heavenly works as presented in the Orion message is a reassurance to the 144,000 whose sealing was completed in connection with the anniversary of Jesus’ baptism on September 3/4, 2020,[96] that just like the voice of God confirmed Jesus in His earthly ministry, so it speaks to the Christlike ones today.

The Lord has not abandoned His people.

Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord God; this is the day whereof I have spoken. (Ezekiel 39:8)

Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel? (Ezekiel 18:31)

Education, p. 15, par. 1 – When Adam came from the Creator’s hand, he bore, in his physical, mental, and spiritual nature, a likeness to his Maker. “God created man in His own image” (Genesis 1:27), and it was His purpose that the longer man lived the more fully he should reveal this image—the more fully reflect the glory of the Creator. All his faculties were capable of development; their capacity and vigor were continually to increase. Vast was the scope offered for their exercise, glorious the field opened to their research. The mysteries of the visible universe—the “wondrous works of Him which is perfect in knowledge” (Job 37:16)—invited man’s study. Face-to-face, heart-to-heart communion with his Maker was his high privilege. Had he remained loyal to God, all this would have been his forever. Throughout eternal ages he would have continued to gain new treasures of knowledge, to discover fresh springs of happiness, and to obtain clearer and yet clearer conceptions of the wisdom, the power, and the love of God. More and more fully would he have fulfilled the object of his creation, more and more fully have reflected the Creator’s glory.

In his isolated home John was able to study more closely than ever before the manifestations of divine power as recorded in the book of nature and in the pages of inspiration. To him it was a delight to meditate on the work of creation and to adore the divine Architect. In former years his eyes had been greeted by the sight of forest-covered hills, green valleys, and fruitful plains; and in the beauties of nature it had ever been his delight to trace the wisdom and skill of the Creator. He was now surrounded by scenes that to many would appear gloomy and uninteresting; but to John it was otherwise. While his surroundings might be desolate and barren, the blue heavens that bent above him were as bright and beautiful as the skies above his loved Jerusalem. In the wild, rugged rocks, in the mysteries of the deep, in the glories of the firmament, he read important lessons. All bore the message of God’s power and glory. {AA 571.2

This association is explained in detail in The Books Are Closed

The biblical “seven stars” on the Mazzaroth are the seven classical planets on the ecliptic: Sun, Mercury, Venus, Moon, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. 
70.
Many of these concepts are presented in detail in The Books Are Closed
71.
Compare the prophecy of Brother Dan entitled The sound of My voice causes the heavens to tremble (video). 
72.
Isaiah 6:4 – And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. 
73.
In The Hour of Escape, it was indicated as spanning from January 11–13, 2021 to May 20–23, 2021 based on half an hour being half of the Orion clock cycle, from right throne lines to left throne lines, respectively. 
74.
Just like the minute hand of a standard wall clock, one full clock cycle represents one hour in these final rapid movements of earth’s history.

Taurus is one of the four main constellations of the Mazzaroth that symbolize the four beasts around the throne. 
79.
This entire theme is explained in the Orion presentation
80.
A TV show that aired on March 1, 2015—half a year before the (preparing) Orion plague cycle—shows the delay that the elite planned for the “plandemic” of the Coronavirus. Watch this video and understand that God knows all things from the beginning; He knew that we would intercede for more time in October 2016 and therefore, the crisis was already postponed in 2015. 
86.
The relevant feast-related traditions are also described and explained in The Day of the Witnesses
87.
Some mistakenly count the jubilees by 50 years, but the fiftieth year is not actually part of the sabbatical count, and therefore doubles as the first year of the next 49-year jubilee count. See Leviticus 25:8 – And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. 
88.
Note: this year was not an official jubilee year according to the regular count, but as God has shown that 2021 begins the great antitypical jubilee of Christ’s return by our figurative travel back in time to the 70th jubilee of 1890, looking back at history in this way is like looking back, after our “time traveling,” to the 69th jubilee. (The time traveling concept is explained in The Seven Lean Years.)

This was seen and described in The Summer Threshing, but not yet fully understood. The remarks in that article take on new meaning in the present light! 
90.
Matthew 13:39 – The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. 
91.
Isaiah 63:4 – For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come. 
92.
Matthew 24:21 – For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 
93.
Exodus 10:7 – And Pharaoh’s servants said unto him, How long shall this man be a snare unto us? let the men go, that they may serve the Lord their God: knowest thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed? 
94.
Early Writings, p. 35 – Then commenced the jubilee, when the land should rest. I saw the pious slave rise in triumph and victory and shake off the chains that bound him, while his wicked master was in confusion and knew not what to do; for the wicked could not understand the words of the voice of God. Soon appeared the great white cloud. 
95.
Ezekiel 1:16 – The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.
