The Battle Belongs to the LORD

 

The prayers of the Elijah movement were heard! As we begin writing this article on June 3, 2018, the date prophesied by the Orion Clock, fire from heaven has fallen upon the altar of the sixth trumpet!

And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God… (Revelation 9:13)

Brother John emphasized in Elijah’s Prayer and the End of Grace how it is only WHEN the events have happened that we can be certain of the meaning of the biblical symbols. Even in our article about Hawaii as Elijah’s altar, however, we noted that there were two altars on the biblical Mt. Carmel.

This day, June 3, 2018, was the showdown between the modern Elijah and the present-day priests of Baal. By the end of the day, by the end of this article, you will know who the Lord is, and who His servants are, because you will have seen the fire on the Lord’s altar.

First, Baal’s Altar

It was noted in the aforementioned article on Hawaii that one of the altars of the figurative Mt. Carmel is the Gaza strip:

Before the sacrifice to the Lord, which for us corresponds to the sixth trumpet on June 3, there had to be a sacrifice to the gods of this world. There were two altars on Mt. Carmel.

The worshippers of Baal represent those who hail Israel, the millennium of peace, or an escapist Rapture. They are politically supportive of Trump and Israel against the Palestinians, and therefore their figurative altar is in Israel, in the Gaza strip. They dance around to their own hurt, like Trump, not discerning the true God.

Represented by the altar of Baal, which his priests danced around in the morning,[1] the Gaza strip is where the first events happened in fulfillment of the sixth trumpet.

Gaza altar

The Gaza strip is a more-or-less rectangular strip of land with four corners, or four horns, and many maps show it in a sandy desert yellow or “golden” color, reflecting the description in the sixth trumpet verse.

This strip of land has been the site of many deaths, and recently (within the past month or so alone) the death toll has exceeded 120.

Clashes have been frequent ever since Trump’s Jerusalem declaration at the beginning of the fifth trumpet, which served to embolden Israel in its disproportionately severe responses to attack, and to anger the Palestinians and their supporters who claim Jerusalem as their own. In this way, the United States is the power behind Israel who is calling down man-made fire from heaven, ultimately in the form of WW3, just as indicated in Revelation 13 regarding the second beast.

And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, (Revelation 13:13)

Summoning the People

The recent Gaza storyline takes many sharp turns. Generally speaking, the nations of the world—represented by the UN—have been supportive of the Palestinians. However, that flip-flopped in the past week, with the UN and EU “loudly supporting Israel against attack,” according to The Algemeiner. Then, something suddenly caused a sharp flip back the other way—it was the killing of a young 21-year-old volunteer medic, shot by an Israeli sniper on Friday, June 1. Mondoweiss reports:

Razan al-Najjar

Today’s news from Gaza was especially disturbing. Israeli snipers shot 40 protesters and killed one of them: Razan al-Najjar, a 21-year-old volunteer medic. She was wearing a white coat when she was shot, news accounts say, and one report says she was attempting to tend a wounded protester.

When a sniper, who can certainly see through his scope that the young woman in his crosshairs is a medic, shoots her unarmed and only trying to help the wounded, it not only tugs at the heartstrings of anyone with a shred of sympathy, but really raises questions of morality even in times of conflict. The Palestinian Medical Relief Society outright named it a war crime, according to DW:

“Shooting at medical personnel is a war crime under the Geneva conventions,” the PMRC said in a statement. It called for “an immediate international response to Israeli humanitarian law violations in Gaza.”

The death of Razan al-Najjar on Friday was mourned by thousands the following day, June 2, in processions in Gaza, the same article says, prompting public outrage:

Thousands of Palestinians, many dressed in white medical uniforms, took part on Saturday in the funeral of a nurse who was shot dead at the Israel-Gaza border.

Razan Najjar, 21, a volunteer paramedic, was shot by Israeli troops near Khan Yunis on Friday, prompting outrage in Gaza.

Her father held her white, blood-stained medics' jacket as ambulances and medical crews took part in the procession.

This public outrage among the Palestinians was followed by Hamas’ firing of more rockets to Israel on Saturday night and into Sunday morning before dawn:

Rocket sirens were heard in various border communities in southern Israel throughout Saturday night and early Sunday.

Najjar’s death was cited as the reason behind the firing of these rockets—in breach of the recently achieved truce:

Sources in Gaza said it is thought that the rockets were fired in response to Friday's killing of a 21-year-old Palestinian medic, Razzan Najjar, who was shot by Israeli army fire. Forty other Palestinians were wounded during demonstrations near the Israel-Gaza border on Friday, according to the Gaza Health Ministry. Najjar, a volunteer for a medical team helping wounded protesters, was shot near Khan Yunis. Thousands attended her funeral.

This series of events over the weekend tell a story that unfolds over days, much like the signs in heaven also tell a story over a period of days, and this story of Razan al-Najjar comes to a head exactly on the beginning date of the sixth trumpet.

A Voice from the Altar

A voice is heard coming from the altar at the very beginning of the sixth trumpet:

And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, (Revelation 9:13)

To understand how the death of Najjar fulfills the voice coming from the altar on June 3, even though she died two days earlier, you first need to understand who is able to speak from an altar. The fifth seal indicates that it is not only the living, but also the dead who can speak, figuratively, from the altar:

And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? (Revelation 6:9-10)

In prophecy, the dead can speak from an altar,[2] and the anger riled by the killing of Najjar is clearly speaking. It is not said to be a “loud” voice in Revelation 9:13, and therefore you probably didn’t hear it above the din of all the clashes, but it was definitely a voice in the news headlines for a time. This voice at the beginning of the sixth trumpet foreshadows a louder voice that is to follow: the “loud cry” of the accompanying harvest text of Revelation 14:18. We will come to that later.

Najjar was killed on Friday, then the funeral was held on Saturday—so that she could be figuratively “put under” the altar. Then her voice could speak through the public outrage, and that evening and into Sunday, Hamas launched its ballistic attacks on Israel.

A Precision Watch

Then, with the precision of clockwork, on the very date that was prophesied over a year in advance on God’s trumpet clock, fire descended from the sky onto this Gaza strip “altar.” Quoting Haaretz:

At 1 A.M. early Sunday, the Israeli army announced that fighter planes had attacked three Hamas compounds, including two weapons-production and storage sites and another military compound.

Note that according to the Bible text, this “altar” stands before God, as Gaza stands in front of Israel, the ancient land where God once put His name. It’s too bad that many so-called Christians think the Israel of today still has something to do with the blessings of God, when its inhabitants flatly reject Jesus as the Christ to this day, and those Messianic Jews who do accept Jesus as the Christ are persecuted there.

This fire, however, came from the first heaven (the sky) and was man-made, like the blood of the priests of Baal who cut themselves. It was not an act of God. Nevertheless, the timing of this fire from heaven was such an incredibly precise fulfillment of prophecy that it already shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that the answer to Elijah’s prayer for the end of grace has come—but it’s just the beginning of June 3! We haven’t even reached the daylight hours yet!

The Goat’s Head and Neck

The mysteriously missing goat’s head from the sixth trumpet text’s chimera, as explained in Brother John’s recent article, pin-points the event within about half an hour! Quoting the article, including the picture:

Lifting our heads again with the help of a planetarium program, we are astonished to discover where the sought-after goat's neck and head are hiding.

Only a few minutes after sunset on June 2, 2018 in Paraguay,[3] the moon enters the constellation of Capricorn, which has a goat as its upper body and a fish as its lower body. It is therefore also referred to as the "fish-goat."

The moon in Capricorn in the evening of June 2, 2018

That picture with the moon crossing the line into Capricorn is included “as-is” from his article. Pay attention to the date and time of the moon crossing as we quote again what he wrote about this event:

This does not mean that the catastrophe will take place at exactly 5:24 p.m. Paraguayan time, but the beginning of the Jewish day of June 2/3 is clearly indicated.

Thus, the rule is confirmed that the events always take place at the earlier temporal limit of a throne line. We’ve seen that for years, which is easy to check in our old articles on LastCountdown and also in the newer ones in the Prophecies Fulfilled section.

Now that the day has come and the event happened at 1:00 a.m. Israel time, we can see just how accurately heaven foretold the time of Israel’s attack on Hamas in Gaza—within about half an hour! To help compare the time zones carefully, here we include two pictures of the same heavens at the time of the attack, first viewed from Jerusalem, and then from Asuncion, Paraguay:

Moon entering Capricorn, viewed from Jerusalem

Versus:

Moon entering Capricorn, viewed from Asuncion, Paraguay

1:00 a.m. in Israel was 6:00 p.m. in Asuncion, Paraguay—the hour the moon crossed the line! And the moon is in the goat part of the constellation (not the fish part) for the whole day of June 3, 2018. The prophecy clearly pinpointed not only the day, but even the hour of the opening event.

Could this high-precision timing—down to the very hour—have something to do with what is meant by the “hour, day, month, and year”?

And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. (Revelation 9:15)

Indeed, the precision of the sixth trumpet prophecy has been proven historically ever since Josiah Litch’s successful prediction of the fall of the Ottoman Empire to the very day in 1840. That was in a time when prophecy was still being reckoned in years (a day for a year), but now that we are in the end of the end times and prophecy is fulfilling in literal days, the sixth trumpet prophecy precision goes down to the literal hour!

The careful Bible student, however, should see a problem with applying this verse about the precision to the exactness of Israel’s strike against Hamas. The verse speaks of the FOUR angels being loosed, and Israel’s attack could hardly count for that. It was just the escalated response to the voice at the beginning of the trumpet text, which forewarns of the four winds of world war that are to be loosened soon afterward to kill a third part of men, which is the main subject of the trumpet. And that gives us an important hint: Since we already had hourly precision at the beginning of the trumpet, it must also be possible to know the exact hour when the war will break out! …Keep reading!

The Voice’s Plea

Do you see that the biblical prophecy of WW3 is in the process of fulfillment? The Bible verse indicates what this event today means, as expressed through the voice from the altar:

Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. (Revelation 9:14)

Even before deciphering what the voice says, it should be noted that it speaks to the sixth trumpet angel, which stands for the date of June 3, 2018. In other words, the voice calls for the events of that date to loose the four angels. That means the events on June 3 must really be the lead-up to what follows.

It is easy to make the mistake of thinking that the four winds of world war are loosed here, but the text does not say that. It simply says the angels (who hold the four winds) are to be unbound from the Euphrates. That means the nations that have been involved in the proxy war in Syria (where the Euphrates runs) are being called upon to act on the international stage, and no longer just in the Syria sandbox. World war comes soon enough, but everything in its order.

We are already seeing the nations taking their conflicts global with the exchange of threats between the US and China regarding the “taking down” of whole militarily fortified islands in the South China Sea, for example, and the training of European states led by the US beginning this day, June 3, in the Saber Strike 18 exercise. The latter is designed to train for a response around the Russian port city of Kaliningrad, in fear of an expansion of Russia beyond Crimea and Ukraine, topics that are chiastically related to the sixth trumpet through the second trumpet of the preparatory trumpet cycle.[4]

Right off the bat , that makes two of the four “wind” angels that are now unbound from Syria and ready to face off in the international arena. Iran can certainly be counted as well, knowing that the cries of the Palestinians are surely reaching their sympathetic ears. And what of North Korea?

Second, the Fire on the Lord’s Altar

Fire on the altar Although the sixth trumpet date began with the man-made fire on the symbolic altar of Baal in Gaza, the day also brought fire on God’s altar, following the pattern of 1 Kings 18! The symbolic altar of the Lord is Hawaii and the Pacific Ring of Fire, as explained in those two recent articles.

At about 3 p.m. in Paraguay on June 3, we learned of the eruption of Guatemala’s “Volcano of Fire,” which is part of the Ring of Fire. One of the areas that was completely devastated was a world-class hotel, golf resort, and residences called La Reunión, meaning The Meeting or The Assembly. This alludes to Elijah’s meeting on Mt. Carmel, where the original showdown took place and God answered Elijah by fire. Another report states that the ash covered a village called Sangre de Cristo, meaning “Blood of Christ”. The symbolism in these names and the timing of the events on Sunday afternoon is pregnant with meaning.

Jesus Christ was the great antitypical Sacrifice that the animal on the altar of the Lord represented. His blood is the cleansing substance that alone washes away sin, and when the village named for His blood was ominously blanketed in ash, it was God’s way of saying that the burnt offering—the sacrifice of Christ’s blood—had been completely consumed. Nothing was left but ash, a graphic illustration of the end of grace and the complete burning of the sacrifice in answer to Elijah’s prayer for a divine manifestation to galvanize the faith of Israel.

This eruption took place “shortly before noon” local time,[5] which would have been almost 2 p.m. in Paraguay. That corresponds very nearly to the time of the preparation for the evening sacrifice. The Mishnah indicates that the evening sacrifice was normally slaughtered at about 2:30 p.m.:

The daily burnt-offering was slaughtered at the eighth hour and a half and offered up at the ninth hour and a half [6]

Note that the 12 hours of the Hebrew day are the daylight hours, so the eighth hour corresponds to about 2 p.m. for us, and the ninth hour to 3 p.m. That means it was very near the time of the evening sacrifice when the lava and pyroclastic flows, which can reach 430 mph and 1000 degrees Celsius (1800 Fahrenheit),[7] devastated vast areas and killed scores of people (with about 200 still missing) in the hours after the eruption.

This was the fire on the altar of the Lord—an act of God, not man—that signaled the consumption of the sacrifice and the end of grace.

Can it really be, that grace is ending now?

If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it. (1 John 5:16)

Billowing ash cloud approaching All unrighteousness is sin, but there is a sin unto death, and a sin not unto death. Those who willfully and knowingly sin against God in this time will no longer be excused. When the evidence is as clear as it is now, and a person knowingly rejects it, there is nothing more that can save them. Even the blood of Christ has a limit to what it can do—a voluntary limit, because God does not coerce. He gave His conscious creations free will, and He ultimately respects that free will.

That Old Serpent

The eruption in Guatemala calls to mind the earthquake that struck nearly a year ago in that vicinity. That quake struck the city of Quetzaltenango in Guatemala on June 14, 2017.[8] Soon after that, God indicated that the time of earthquakes had begun.[9] Now it is the time of the volcanoes. God is angry, as illustrated by the “fury” of this volcanic eruption.

It is surely not by accident that God’s anger is demonstrated in Guatemala. But why poor Guatemala, of all places? What did they do to deserve being made an example? When you see how the eruption has affected the landscape, turning the lush green verdure into a lifeless gray wasteland, and when you see how the homes have been swept away without a trace, and when you see the ashen remains of bodies and hear the tragic reports of lonely survivors whose family members were buried alive, you can’t help but feel a deep sense of pity. It is never God’s desire to cause woe and suffering, but when the creatures He endowed with free will refuse to heed the warnings that come from His throne and fail to warn others, the results are devastating.

With no lack of sympathy for individual souls, the trumpet text answers the question of why God chose Guatemala for this sign, and gives one last warning—if it would just be heard. Those who do not pass on the warnings of God, when it is in their power to do so, heap upon themselves the guilt of all the death that results.

The text very clearly describes the sins of those who survived the three plagues of fire, smoke, and brimstone, and by implication also of those who did not survive:

And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts. (Revelation 9:20-21)

The number one sin of these people is devil worship! And second is idolatry. Now compare that with how Wikipedia describes the Guatemalan culture:

The culture of Guatemala reflects strong Mayan and Spanish influences and continues to be defined as a contrast between poor Mayan villagers in the rural highlands, and the urbanized and relatively wealthy mestizos population (known in Guatemala as ladinos) who occupy the cities and surrounding agricultural plains.

What is described is two classes: the poor Mayan villagers on one hand, and on the other hand, the urban populations that have mixed with the Spanish and are thus predominantly Catholic, like most of South America. Guatemala is home to many tens of thousands of Mayan structures, including pyramids, and a Mayan megalopolis that sprawls under vast jungles that have kept it hidden until recently.[10]

And who did the Mayans worship? Under whatever name, it is the same old Mesoamerican Kukulcan, also called Quetzalcoatl, which is the feathered serpent that the Bible calls the Devil:

And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, (Revelation 20:2)

Quetzalcoatl head We wrote an article about Quetzalcoatl, identifying his prophesied return as being fulfilled by Pope Francis, the sovereign of the Catholic Church. Thus, both classes of Guatemalans are identified by the biblical description: the Mayans who worship the devil disguised as a serpent, and the Catholics who worship the devil in person, as well as idols.

The earthquake last year even struck the city that is named after Quetzalcoatl! Now, that and the volcanic eruption together serve as a warning for the wrath of God upon not just Guatemala, but all who follow that old serpent.

But God’s anger is directed not only at a place, but at a time: June, a.k.a. Gay Pride month. The US was instrumental in spearheading the mark of the beast legislation around the world and bringing on the Trumpocalypse. Mexico, which neighbors Guatemala and was also affected by the earthquake last year, is very culpable in supporting the LGBT scene. The sixth trumpet is the last warning before the plagues begin on August 20, 2018, when all those who have received the mark of the beast will be targeted by the wrath of God.

The three plagues of the sixth trumpet—fire, smoke, and brimstone (sulfur)—are indiscriminating, but the first “official” plague of Revelation 16 will be poured out only on those who have the mark of the beast or worship his image. That is a parallel to the plagues of Egypt: the first three affected everyone, but the last seven fell upon only the Egyptians and not the Hebrews.

In contrast to the man-made fire from the sky over Gaza, the eruption of Guatemala’s Volcano of Fire was truly an “act of God.” The ash that bellowed 10,000 meters (about 30,000 feet) into the atmosphere and the devastation wreaked by hot lava burning in fiery streams down the mountain sides are a vivid and timely picture on the afternoon of June 3 to show—according to our previous articles—that God confirms this movement of High Sabbath Adventists as the modern-day Elijah, through an act of God on the Ring of Fire. On the day of the eruption, the Volcano of Fire affected over a million people,[11] but that figure has since surpassed two million and is still counting. Entire villages have been buried, and some communities are still entirely unaccounted for.

Hawaii as the Altar

The day of June 3 would not have been complete without a specific confirmation of the Prayer of Elijah, which although it was not meant to restrict the manner in which God answered by fire, was expected to possibly include fire on the symbolic altar itself: Hawaii.

At 3:51 p.m. local time, which was a little before 10 p.m. in Paraguay, a magnitude 5.5 earthquake at the summit of Kilauea triggered an ash plume rising 8000 ft. This is a completely different type of volcano than the Volcano of Fire in Guatemala, the former being a shield volcano and the latter being a stratovolcano, which have very different behaviors and characteristics. The highest rate of earthquakes ever measured at Kilauea’s summit area occurred over this weekend, the report says, and “[t]his eruption has lasted longer than the 1955 and 1924 eruptions.”

Dear readers, this was just the first day of the sixth trumpet! It was the answer to our prayers and to the Carmel Challenge, but it’s not over. Although we did not wish harm to anyone, and gave out plenty of warnings, the events of the day show in answer to our prayer that God is in control, and that the High Sabbath Adventists are His servants. Even the stones are consumed in the immense volcanic heat, as in the time of Elijah, and fire appeared both at the “altar” of Hawaii, lighting up the sky, and at the Pacific Ring of Fire “trench.” The water of a whole lake on Hawaii was even “licked up” in a matter of a couple of hours.[12]

Flaming sky over Hawaii

Then the fire of the Lord fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. (1 Kings 18:38)

Indeed, the tragic stories flooding the press show that it was wise of any who heeded the counsel of Elijah to be inland away from the Ring of Fire on this day. We hope many more will take this and future warnings equally seriously, but it’s too late to prevent the daily dose of grim and disturbing news that will be the world’s daily bread from now on.

A Reflection in the Water

The eruption of Guatemala’s Volcano of Fire is itself a warning sign for something greater. With all due compassion to those who are affected by it, it is not the big disaster of the sixth trumpet. The power and immense heat with which it is devastating that region within Guatemala is only a reflection of another power on the other side of the Ring of Fire that is also about to wipe out entire cities and bury them in ash: China. If you draw a horizontal line of reflection from Guatemala on one side of the Ring of Fire to the other side, you will see exactly where the violent eruption of World War Three will probably begin: The South China Sea.

South China Sea mirrored by Guatemala across the Ring of Fire

The US’ threat to “take down” China’s man-made islands in the South China Sea, after they moved nuclear weapons there, is bound to erupt into open conflict—and then it will not be a regional disaster limited to the vicinity of an erupting volcano, but a disaster of global proportions, with many whole cities being turned to ash by the atomic firepower of two of the world’s major nuclear heavyweights.

In Brother John’s article, he explained how the 200 million figure points to the Pacific Plate and the Ring of Fire, where the oldest parts of the seafloor are being subducted. The continental plates were originally joined together in one supercontinent that is now referred to as Pangea, which explains the matching fossils on now-distant continents. In the same vein, China’s ancient past shares a common connection with that of Guatemala: the worship of Quetzalcoatl—not by that name, of course, but by the name of the “dragon,” just as the Bible said in Revelation 20:2, quoted earlier.

Chinese dragon

The Chinese dragon that is so ubiquitous on the Chinese New Year is none other than the old feathered serpent of Mesoamerica. It is also the fire-breathing chimera described in the sixth trumpet text of the Bible, which has the head of a lion and the tail of a serpent. Lion dances and dragon dances are a staple of Chinese culture, so the Bible employs a symbol that points to the national culture. Are you starting to see how God is using the eruption and devastation in Guatemala to warn of something even greater?

China is near the oldest region of the Pacific Plate, where the figure of 200 million refers to its age, and many interpreters even relate that number to the size of China’s army (or arsenal, as the case may be). China also has many ancient pyramids, purported to be burial places, which are also a clear link to the ancient forms of worship in Guatemala and elsewhere. That means the volcanic eruption in Guatemala at the beginning of the sixth trumpet is apparently pointing to China, and specifically the South China Sea, as the theater where the four angels of the four winds of World War Three will start to blow!

And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. (Revelation 9:15)

This loosening is where the exact hour is mentioned in the text. If we could identify the exact hour of the earlier event—Israel’s bombing at 1 a.m. on June 3—then we should certainly be able to pinpoint the hour when the four angels are loosed, since that is where the text says it!

Throwing Down the Censer

The process of loosing the four angels, or in other words the ending of grace, is symbolized by the throwing down of the censer:

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

The censer, played by Mercury on the heavenly stage, enters the altar, represented by the constellation Taurus, by crossing the constellation boundary on May 26. However, the text indicates that we should consider the horizon as the boundary, because mercury is thrown “into the earth.” That appears very vividly when viewed from Jerusalem:

Mercury entering Taurus on May 24, 2018

That was the eve of (same Jewish day as) the anniversary of Christ’s crucifixion on May 25, AD 31. May 25 was the day when the GDPR law went into effect, which immediately resulted in the voluntary censoring of major news sites in Europe. Reports spoke of Europe “going dark” on that day. The world of cyberspace shrunk, and if time would go on long enough, eventually all that would be left would be whatever agrees with UN policy and propaganda.

That begins the process of Mercury’s transit to the center of Taurus, where it meets the sun to get fire from the altar, before exiting Taurus again. We already saw the incredible fulfillment of the fire of the altar on June 3 with the eruptions in Guatemala and Hawaii, so now let’s talk about Mercury’s exit. Technically, Mercury would exit the imaginary boundary of the constellation on June 12, but as you see in the following picture, it is in the extended hand of Orion on June 11.

Mercury in Orion's hand on June 11, 2018

The sign of throwing down the censer truly begins (in reverse time) not when the censer is nonsensically flying somewhere behind Orion’s hand, but with the censer securely in hand on June 11. That is the date when net neutrality laws change in the US. The heavenly sign shows the entire process of curbing Internet freedom. Opening and closing the celestial act of throwing down the censer are the threats to free speech in both the Old and New Worlds on both ends, and then darkness will cover both worlds. When free speech dies, your lifeline is subject to disappearance without notice. So, download our books now!

This emphasizes that prophecy fulfillment is a process, and there is still another crucial event marked in the heavens, between the collapses of Internet freedom in the Old and New Worlds. The time of not buying and selling will have begun.

Filling the Censer with Fire

In the heavenly portrayal, the censer is filled with fire as Mercury meets the fiery nuclear reactor of the sun on June 5 or 6, depending on location. In-The-Sky.org lists the time of conjunction as “06 Jun 2018 01:50 UTC” which means it would still be June 5 in the New World, late at night. On God’s calendar, June 5/6 corresponds to the seventh day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread for the second possibility, so it should all the more be the date of an important event.

Indeed, as I write this section on the morning of June 5, the headlines are already promptly obedient to the prophecy in the heavens:

Iran to start assembling new centrifuges June 6

Ali Akbar Salehi, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), said the Islamic Republic will start assembling new centrifuges from June 6 in the Natanz center in line with Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s directives, Iran's state-run IRINN TV reported.

Centrifuges are used to purify uranium in order to produce fuel for nuclear weapons. This is the filling of the figurative censer with the burning coals of nuclear fuel, beginning exactly on the date indicated by the conjunction of Mercury with the sun, and it shows that the sixth trumpet is indeed warning about atomic war, and not just about volcanoes erupting.

The identification of China in the sixth trumpet is also significant in light of the fact that Iran is working with China on their nuclear program. Several of our articles[13] have already identified the Khorramshahr missile as Iran’s delivery vehicle for this purpose.

The sixth trumpet is defined by the throne lines of the Orion clock, which means that the start of the trumpet is not only a single day, but a span of several days, namely from June 3 to 10. June 6 is right in the middle of the throne lines, which are the “balance beam” of the three throne stars that form Orion’s belt. As such, the throne lines bring the sixth trumpet into a certain relation to the third trumpet on the opposite side of the clock.

Trumpet Orchestra

We detailed our observations of the events that fulfilled the third trumpet beginning dates in Signposts to Eden and Opening the Bottomless Pit, and there you can read about how Iran had suddenly become a prominent opponent of the US. Events developed all through that week from July 20 to 27, 2017, culminating in the successful test of a powerful rocket under the guise of launching a satellite into space.

Then, they were building the rockets—now, they are manufacturing the fuel! Exactly in the middle of the throne lines that marked their rocket launch the previous year!

The launch on July 27, 2017 means we should also be on the lookout for something to happen on the second throne line of the sixth trumpet as well, on June 10, 2018. It is the same line that marked the great star that fell in the third trumpet, burning as a lamp and making the waters deadly.

The truth is, however, that Iran has probably been working toward their goals secretly all this time and already has the capability to launch nuclear weapons, or at least the money and relationships to hire China or North Korea to do it on their behalf. When Iran speaks of years of further development, it does not mean world war will wait that long.

For one thing, both the US and Israel are absolutely dead-set against Iran possessing nuclear weapons or even having the capability to manufacture weapons-grade uranium. Netanyahu reiterated that in response to Iran’s decision to resume uranium enrichment:

“We are not surprised. We will not allow Iran to get nuclear weapons.” [14]

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has also made the US’ stance clear recently, saying:

“We will also ensure that Iran has no path to a nuclear weapon. Not now, not ever.” [15]

Iran's nuclear-capable Khorramshahr missile There is no other reason why Iran would be building centrifuges except to produce fuel for nuclear warheads—and that makes it almost laughable, if it weren’t so serious, when the press emphasizes that Iran is still conforming to the nuclear deal despite deciding to build centrifuges. To the contrary, they will be operating outside JCPOA (the Iran deal)—and this comes straight from the horse’s mouth:

“The Islamic Republic cannot abide by the JCPOA and at the same time bear the brunt of the US sanctions,” Salehi said. "Iran is ready for all scenarios, including a scenario without JCPOA, a scenario with JCPOA, and for a win-win scenario where both sides are satisfied." [16]

Do you see how the fire from heaven of World War III was positively delayed from 2015 to the present by the Iran nuclear deal in fulfillment of Revelation 7:2-3? The sign in heaven showing the filling of the censer with fire points to this very day that Iran itself breaks the Iran nuclear deal by pursuing weapons-grade uranium enrichment, thus beginning the manufacture of the very “fire” of nuclear weapons. Wow—how much more accurately could the sixth trumpet prophecy fulfill!? Could it also be accurate to the very hour?

Going by Iran’s time, the conjunction would happen at 6:20 a.m. on June 6, 2018—within the hour of the start of a typical working day! The heavens declare the very hour when Iranian workers will go to work on Wednesday morning to start making fuel for nuclear warheads. What next!?

Will the Bible still tell us when the war itself will begin?

The Sickle in the Hand

With a single (soft) voice, Najjar’s blood figuratively called out from the Gaza altar at the beginning of the sixth trumpet, as a prefigure of the loud cry that calls for the vintage later on, according to the text in chapter 14. That loud voice is directed to a specific person:

And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. (Revelation 14:18)

The loud cry would logically have to come on or after June 12, after Mercury has taken its fire and left the altar. It might be tempting to place the loud cry right on Mercury’s crossing the line of the constellation on June 12, since it would then be leaving the altar, especially since June 12 is also the date of Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong-un in Singapore. That could easily become a turning point in the events of the sixth trumpet, being that it is an unrealistically ambitious meeting between two highly volatile personalities. Perhaps that will be when the last of the four “wind angels” will be unbound, but it cannot be when the four winds of world war itself begin to blow, for one simple reason: it isn’t supported by the text.

The text says that the angel coming out of the altar cries to the person with the sickle. That was previously identified as Orion,[17] who held the sickle (the moon) in hand in the previous verse,[18] corresponding to the beginning of the fifth trumpet. This text, verse 14:18, must involve the same character: Orion, with the sickle in hand. But there is no sickle in Orion’s hand on June 12.

Another reason why June 12 would not be a good candidate for the loud cry of verse 14:18 is that it is only marked by Mercury crossing an imaginary line, and Mercury moves slow enough that it does not give a very high precision. It would indicate a date, but we are expecting to know also the exact hour! Of all the actors on the stage, the moon moves most quickly, and it was the moon that gave us the hour at the beginning of the trumpet on June 3. Seeing the moon in the hand of Orion would definitely indicate a point in time well within a tolerance of +/- 1 hour. One would be hard pressed to determine the hour from any of the other actors.

When is the moon in Orion’s hand? See for yourself, and verify that all the actors are on-stage and in the pose described in the text:

Moon in Orion's hand on June 14, 2018

The angel (Mercury) is present and has still recently left the altar (Taurus), the fire (the sun) that he had power over is also still there on the altar (Taurus), and the one who had the sickle (Orion) is back on the scene with the sickle (the moon) in hand. Every symbol is accounted for.

The dark new moon even fulfills another prophecy:

They have dealt treacherously with the Lord, For they have begotten pagan children. Now a New Moon shall devour them and their heritage. (Hosea 5:7 NKJV)

This is the hour of the loud cry, and must be the hour when the four angels are let loose, which were prepared for this very hour. The new moon is dark for at least parts of three days, and if you will, this is even the “three days of darkness.” This also fulfills the prophecy of Ezekiel:

And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a[n ash] cloud, and the moon shall not give her light. All the bright lights of heaven will I make dark over thee, and set darkness upon thy land, saith the Lord God. (Ezekiel 32:7-8)

As well as that of Jesus in Matthew 24:

Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: (Matthew 24:29)

Friends, Jesus is at the door!

Grace is Over: You Must Decide

The heavenly sign of the sixth trumpet—the throwing down of the censer, enacted by Mercury thrown from Orion’s hand, taking fire from the sun at conjunction in Taurus (the altar) and striking the horizon[19]—reiterates among other things the fact that prophecy unfolds over a course of time. Those unbelieving voices that say such things as “there was no WW3 on June 3” forget that fact. The sixth trumpet prophecy describes the sequence of events to happen between the two points of the clock from June 3 to August 20, 2018, but the war is not said to break out on the first day. If it did, how would the sixth trumpet serve as a warning?

The beginning of great wars is usually identified long after the fact, because the trigger events are not that obvious and not always easy to distinguish among the “noise” of the world’s conflicts, until a cause-and-effect analysis of the chain of events points back to them. We are a prophetic ministry, however, and therefore we are on the cutting edge of seeing things that no one else can see, without the spiritual eyesight provided by God through His clocks. But even those who have an intellectual knowledge of the clocks without a heart that has been molded by God are still blind to the way God works and thinks. For God, one voice of a good Samaritan—a non-Jew (meaning a non-Christian in the broad sense)—who was apparently helping the wounded out of a good conscience toward Him, is of great value.[20] Could it be that Razan al-Najjar was counted as the last martyr before the end of grace? That should be cause for concern for many.

Pay attention to the verbal exchange in the fifth seal:

And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. (Revelation 6:9-11)

Their question was how long it would be until the vengeance of God would come, and the answer was, till the number of martyrs was complete. Now the year of vengeance—of God’s revenge or recompense—has come, as it is written:

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

On the clocks of God, we are already in the last year before the saints enter the heavenly Canaan—so the year of recompense has already begun. Najjar’s death could thus also be considered the first death to be avenged by God through the chain of events that follow it. If the wicked are not trembling today, they surely will be before a year’s time has passed. The people of God, however, have a faith in His clock—in His timing—which will help them navigate the rest of the 70 weeks of trouble until Great Babylon crumbles. Very soon it will be said:

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

In closing, let’s quickly recap how the developments have begun, and how the dates indicated in the clocks of God have each been fulfilled in their order so far:

  • May 25 – The censer sign begins depicting the end of grace and the GDPR goes into effect internationally on behalf of the Old World.

  • June 3 – The altar crossing, the day of Elijah’s challenge, is generously fulfilled with man-made fire upon Gaza, and acts of God upon Hawaii and the Ring of Fire.

  • June 6 – Filling the censer with fire, Iran restarts its nuclear fuel production program.

  • June 10 – The second throne line ends the beginning of the sixth trumpet on the Orion Clock.

  • June 11 – The censer sign ends and the net neutrality law changes in the New World.

  • June 12 – Trump-Kim meeting.

  • June 14 – Vintage text is fulfilled by the heavenly bodies: the hour of the loud cry.

That timeline combines the three main Bible passages about the sixth trumpet—Revelation 8:5 about the censer, Revelation 9:13-21 about loosing the four angels, and Revelation 14:18 about the vintage.

So, now you have seen prophecy fulfilled to the nearest hour. You have seen the present-day Elijah confirmed by acts of God according to the divine schedule. You have been warned of the hour when World War Three is likely to begin, and of the coming seven last plagues, and not to compromise regarding the mark of the beast. What is your response to all these things?

The Bible gives a good indication of what an appropriate response would be:

And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The Lord, he is the God; the Lord, he is the God. (1 Kings 18:39)

1.
1 Kings 18:26 – And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made. 
2.
The dead are sleeping and know nothing, but prophetic language is talking in symbols. It is like Abel’s blood was accusing Cain in front of God without Abel really speaking.
