The Final Harvest

 

Daily we see in the news one restriction after another imposed as a result of the coronavirus crisis that continues to grip the world with panic. Life as we know it has radically changed overnight, and there seems to be no end in sight. Many have found themselves unprepared to face such a paradigm shift and are being left wondering if things will ever be “normal” again. Others are beginning to recognize the happenings as indicators that the time of the end is approaching. Does God’s word give us understanding of what is happening through the prophecies shared therein? If so, what is His purpose for His children in such a time as this?

God has provided the answers to those burning questions by revealing that the final harvest of the earth is occurring amidst the coronavirus crisis and by unveiling His harvest plan through the prophetic understanding of Revelation 14 in connection to His clocks. We are in the midst of a great battle, but the eternal victory will not go to those who fight against the Corona![1] The time is quickly passing for gathering the crops before Jesus comes. Will you let Him recruit you as a laborer in the harvest, to share a message of hope and comfort during this perilous time?

At a time when humanity is being isolated and put into lockdown, Jesus is at work preparing to gather His faithful ones unto Himself according to the time on His clock in Orion that shows exactly where we are in earth’s history. Wouldn’t a relevant understanding of Revelation provide you with a sense of direction and purpose and the strength to endure what the world is facing?

It is our most fervent prayer that as you learn about the harvest that Jesus declared to be “the end of the world,”[2] you will gain the confidence in God to face the challenges that will continue their onslaught. May you be part of the plentiful increase for which He sacrificed, to be gathered into His kingdom.

A Harvest in His Time

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive [take] you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. (John 14:3)

Time is Love Jesus, the Lord of the harvest, acts according to the Father’s time as He revealed during His ministry on earth when diligently studying Bible prophecies to know the time and manner in which He would fulfill the types.[3] Likewise now, He is doing the harvest work according to the time revealed by the Father[4] in the Orion clock[5] that depicts His sacrifice and work on behalf of humanity.[6] We can walk closely with the Father during this troublesome time by following Jesus’ example in diligently studying His prophetic Word to identify the Master’s schedule and prepare for the work He has for us.

Many laborers have worked in the field before, calling people to embrace God’s revelations and to herald His return. These harvesters for God’s kingdom were granted the knowledge of God’s time appropriate for their era. Being deeply touched by the saving grace of Jesus, in gratitude they dedicated their lives to research His time and proclaim it to the world. Should they be labeled as heretics, simply because they sought to understand the plans for the harvest directly from their Master, and in eagerness believed they were for the final harvest?

It is always overflowing love in the heart of the believer that drives him to research the time when the blessed hope is to be realized and invite others to prepare for that final harvest. This is not a sin as most people seem to believe as their shunning of time-searching testifies, but it opens the door for an intimate communion with God that Satan wants to prevent at all cost. Time-searchers learn about a characteristic of God[7] that only those who are willing to follow the Spirit’s guidance will understand and embrace.

The Hour of His Judgment is Come

God acts according to the principles that He shares in His word. At His appointed times, He has looked for humble vessels to whom He may give the understanding of His revelations, so that they can in turn proclaim it to others.

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

Revelation 14 presents the impressive imagery of three angels, each bearing a significant message to give to humanity in preparation for the final harvest. God has used human instrumentalities to reveal the meaning of those messages, and to understand them and heed their warnings is of vital importance.

The first angel announces with a loud voice that the hour of God’s judgment is come and gives the command for everyone to worship Him as the Creator. This message is the everlasting gospel to be preached to all.

And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, saying with a loud voice, fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. (Revelation 14:6-7)

God used William Miller, a farmer in the 1800s in the State of Vermont in the U.S., as a mouthpiece to bear this message to the world. As the Holy Spirit was actively engaged in impressing his mind, the enemy of souls countered the Spirit’s work by planting the weeds of Deistic theology. God used Miller’s experiences while fighting battles during the war of 1812 to recognize His providence and to prepare the soil of his heart to be fertile for the work God had for him as the Holy Spirit brought conviction to his life.[8] Miller became a devoted student of the Bible and was drawn to study prophetic passages, letting the Bible be his teacher. Many wrong beliefs were dispelled, and he became convinced that the time of Jesus’ second coming was revealed in Bible prophecy. His study led him to conclude that Jesus would come in 1843 as he calculated the timeline for the application of Daniel 8:14.[9] He believed that the sanctuary was the earth and that the cleansing fire would be the destruction at the return of Christ.[10]

What he did not know was that a transition in the ministry of Jesus in the heavenly sanctuary was about to take place, marking the beginning of the heavenly Day of Atonement, a time of cleansing and judgment.[11] Nevertheless, God was announcing the imminent beginning of the time of judgment in heaven through this humble farmer, and giving a wakeup call to Christians to amend their ways.

The time message that Miller received was a seed of truth accompanied by heart searching that led to repentance and readiness for the harvest of the Master.[12] The dross of sin and false doctrines needed to be purged from all churches and God was urging men to warn of the hour of His judgment, but it was not yet the time of the final harvest.[13]

Babylon is Fallen, is Fallen

Since God always leads His children into all truth, He continued to look for a willing vessel to give further understanding of His time. His Spirit was striving with a man from New Hampshire who had been “a settled unbeliever in the Bible” even working for an atheistic newspaper.[14] Samuel Snow heeded God’s prompting and, as a skeptic, was converted after reading William Miller’s lectures. It was a time message that changed his life and furthered God’s purpose to draw men unto Himself.[15]

Samuel Snow diligently studied prophecy along with God’s feast calendar[16] to better understand when Jesus, his newly found Savior, would come. In August of 1844, in the State of New Hampshire, he presented a refinement of Miller’s time message, taking into consideration the biblical significance and timing of God’s judgment feasts.[17] The Father who reveals the time and acts according to His calendar, was leading Snow in his search. Jesus Himself had highlighted the importance of God’s feast calendar during His earthly ministry as He made His way to Jerusalem at the appointed time and the Holy Spirit revealed how His life would fulfill prophecy step by step. It is important to emphasize that the feasts point to Jesus’ redemptive ministry and that after Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross was consummated, it is no longer necessary to keep the feast rituals. However, learning about their timing and meaning is still important because they are part of God’s plan and He still acts according to them.[18]

Samuel Snow understood that the prophecy of Daniel 8:14 would fulfill about a year and a half later than William Miller had first calculated—on October 22, 1844 (the tenth day of the seventh month).[19] Indeed, on that date, Jesus was to begin His ministry in the Most Holy place, as foreshadowed in the message of the feast type, which involved a cleansing as prophesied by Daniel. Yet it was neither the cleansing of the earth by fire at Jesus’ coming, nor the time of the final harvest.

This refined time message was the message of the second angel that was being proclaimed on the earth in 1844. It was an urgent time of calling out the faithful ones to embrace the clear, present truth directly from the Father and separate from the fallen churches who did not want to listen to God’s message.[20] Babylon, with its false doctrines, was being exposed by earnest believers.[21]

And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. (Revelation 14:8)

In Revelation 18, a fourth angel preaches a remarkably similar message. It repeats the same message about the fall of Babylon, thus emphasizing its importance for us today. The fourth angel brings the complete understanding of the prophecies related to the harvest and the prophecies about the destruction of Babylon that have their final fulfillment in his time. Those who came before him added important pieces to the picture, but the time had not yet come to present the full panorama of the harvest that is made visible now at the end of the world.[22] The first and second angels unveiled the Father’s time and served as the seeds that were planted and that would grow during the time of the proclamation of the warning message shared by the third angel of Revelation 14 until it would be amplified by the fourth angel with the present truth about the mark of the beast.

Do Not Worship the Beast!

God is very protective of His crops and as a faithful Gardener, He reveals the counterfeits of the enemy that are appealing, but work to uproot the truth from the hearts. At the center of His harvest plan in Revelation 14, God placed the message of the third angel to give a solemn warning to mankind. He desires that everyone may belong to His harvest, but His fruits must be undefiled. Therefore, He uncovers the most malevolent plan of the enemy and the consequences of accepting it:

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. (Revelation 14:9-11)

The faithful believers who had waited for Jesus to return on October 22, 1844, though disappointed, continued studying and God gave them the clear understanding that the prophetic period was correct, but the event was not.[23] In heaven, Jesus had begun His atoning ministry in the Most Holy place, and those who had been expectantly waiting for their Savior received the understanding of the sacredness of the fourth commandment[24] that had been defiled by the beast power.[25] The Ten Commandments were presented in their completeness once again, and the truth could shine forth in undimmed glory. For more than 168 years,[26] Christians from all denominations have been called to recognize the error that has entered the churches in disregarding the importance of the Sabbath commandment. The Seventh-day Adventist Church was established by God, testifying through its name about the sanctity of the Sabbath as a warning not to take the mark of the beast, which, for them was and is Sunday worship. That church was chosen to be the carrier of the third angel’s message during the maturation time of the harvest before its final reaping. That message should not hang on time, because the time would be long, and many would die on the way before the heavenly Canaan would come into sight.

For many years this church worked earnestly to water the plants of truth in men’s hearts and to warn about the mark of the beast as it was to be understood for that time.[27] God had laid the foundation needed in order to further reveal Himself and was preparing to shine more rays of light on the Adventist believers to grant them a full understanding of His plan, once the time would have arrived. In 1888, He attempted to share with the church a vital message about righteousness by faith, which would have served as the antidote for the perverse, satanic doctrine of Once Saved Always Saved. Lamentably, at that crucial point, the church organization rejected the message and began its downfall into the abyss of ecumenism and apostasy despite God’s warnings and messages calling for repentance.[28] Their love for knowing God through the study of His prophecies waned, and the church as an organization joined the world instead of receiving progressive revelations from their Lord that would have granted them the honor of revealing the mystery of God[29] to the world now at the time of the final harvest.

With the world imprisoned by the coronavirus crisis, many are longing for answers to what is happening and wise direction for the future, while the SDA church organization is “faithfully” sharing its ecumenical messages to “help” keep people busy instead of announcing far and wide the significance of the time with the explanation of how prophecy is fulfilling in these last days.

The faith and teachings of the Adventist pioneers had laid the foundation for the later revelations God was to grant. The Father needed humble and watchful instruments who loved to research His timing and to whom He could finally grant the understanding of the complete plan for the harvest. The warning against taking the mark of the beast needed to resound with a solid biblical understanding updated with the truths for the present time.[30] There are many theories in the world about what the mark may be, and with the coronavirus crisis the confusion about the topic has increased.[31] Since the consequences of being deceived on this point are by nature eternal, wouldn’t it be fair for God to make the subject plain with a biblical foundation for the world to take a firm stand at this time?

Another Angel

Since the Seventh-day Adventist Church—the judgment church[32] which God had chosen to use in His field for the harvest time—chose to abandon its post of duty, the prophetic understanding that would usher in the reaping of the earth was given to another willing vessel. John Scotram[33] was drawn to Jesus as his personal Savior at the lowest point of his life, and in gratitude for His deliverance, he committed his life to the service of the Lord, whatever the cost. As he purposed to study God’s prophecies with diligence, the prophesied light of the angel of Revelation 18 that was to be shed upon the world was revealed to him, so that he would be able to finish the mystery of God.[34] This mystery, studied for years and just recently unraveled completely during this closing Orion cycle, had to be solved before the Son of God would have the joy of coming back to claim His own from the world.

And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. (Revelation 18:1-2)

To bring in the final harvest, it is imperative for the Father to bestow the necessary prophetic understanding on the world about His plans,[35] so through this angel (messenger) the progressive revelations[36] that God was waiting to unveil were given to the humble group of believers who would cherish it and share the counsel of the Spirit that would mature the grain. Now all Christians can be united in one hope and gather for the final harvest. A small remnant followed Jesus’ example and that of the pioneers of the first and second angel’s messages in studying God’s revelation of time. In so doing, they grew closer to Him and joined the fourth angel as workers in the field. They looked up and saw biblical prophecies fulfilling at marked times on God’s clocks—the heavenly signs foretold by Jesus—and embraced and shared His revelations to the world. They warned the world of the sounding of the trumpets and the outpouring of the plagues and are calling people far and wide to God’s Refuge where heaven draws nigh.

This remnant persevered in faith while finishing the mystery of God, and they understood how God reveals the time of the fulfillments of His prophecies on His clocks and how they teach men the duty of the hour. God gave glimpses of these truths during the time of the third angel’s message,[37] but His revelations were stalled by the SDA church organization, which considered itself rich and in need of nothing.[38]

The Three Angels’ Messages on the Orion Clock

God has a special place on the Orion clock for depicting the three angels who were sent with messages to prepare the hearts of men to know God as Time before His harvest. They are depicted at the center of Jesus’ clock, just as the Bible text says: flying in the midst of heaven. Each one flies at its appointed position according to the nature of the message given by each Member of the Godhead.

The first angel’s message announced the beginning of the heavenly Day of Judgment according to the conviction of the Holy Spirit[39] as Jesus transitioned from the Holy Place to the Most Holy Place. That message is associated with the star Mintaka that symbolizes the throne of the Holy Spirit on Jesus’ clock, because it was the great Counsellor who preached the gospel to men’s hearts after Jesus ascended to heaven.

And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. (Revelation 14:6-7)

The Holy Spirit also seals God’s children into all truth. In the early church, the Holy Spirit was manifested through the outpouring of the early rain, beginning on the day of Pentecost. During the time of the fourth angel, the Holy Spirit was again poured out in great measure in the promised latter rain with the purpose of bringing the wheat to maturity for the final harvest. At this moment, He is working in the hearts of men to prepare those who must yet lead many to righteousness, while a rejection of His testimony is considered the unpardonable sin.

Wherefore I say unto you, all manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. (Matthew 12:31)

The Holy Spirit’s work is now coming to an end on the earth. As everyone is presented the truth, eternal decisions are being made upon the reception or rejection of His testimony. He still gives the admonition to worship God as the Creator of heaven, earth, sea and the fountains of waters. These “fountains of waters” refer to the four rivers that branched out from the river of Eden that watered the garden.[40] This symbol, pointing back to Creation, is depicted “in the midst of heaven” by the four throne lines which emanate from the three belt stars of the throne of God.

Fountains of Waters in OrionIt was the Holy Spirit who revealed the solution to the riddle of Revelation 19:11-13 about the secret name of the Creator, whom the first angel commands all to worship:

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. (Revelation 19:11-13)

When the first image ever of a black hole’s event horizon was unveiled on April 10, 2019, the world watched in awe as this scientific breakthrough was made known. Few, however, understood its significance, since a black hole, being the center of the galactic “cities”,[41] represents the One, shrouded in darkness,[42] who holds all things in order. He spoke to Moses as the I AM—the Creator who is Time Himself! Thus, that image represented the Sign of the Son of Man!

The Sign of the Son of Man Those who understand will render Him worship using the beautiful name that He made known to the world at that time: POWEHI, which means “the adorned fathomless dark creation” or “embellished dark source of unending creation”. It is the name of Jesus, the powerful Creator, the Word of God, that only He knew until that day when the Spirit made the association known.

The second angel, whose message announces the fall of Babylon and what she has done to the nations in poisoning them with her false doctrines, is represented with that star “in the midst of heaven” that follows Mintaka.

And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. (Revelation 14:8)

According to the Strong’s concordance, the word “followed” means “to follow one who precedes,” so the angel that follows—in the Hebraic manner of reading from right to left—must refer to the next star after Mintaka in the midst of heaven, which is Alnilam, representing the throne of the Father. The mouthpiece for this angel was Samuel Snow, who had a precise time message to give based on God’s calendar. As all Christians know, the Father alone reveals the time,[43] so the message that this second angel carried must have come from the Father Himself.

In Revelation 18 a mighty angel (known as the fourth angel for its close relationship to the first three) that comes down from heaven[44] declares a strikingly similar message that must also come from the Father, announcing the fall of Babylon.

And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. (Revelation 18:2)

Therefore, this angel brings a detailed time message directly from the throne of the Father! It is always the Father who announces the time because He IS Time!

The third angel’s message contains an extraordinarily strong warning against taking the mark of the beast and is given next by an angel that follows the two preceding ones. It is represented by the star Alnitak, the throne of the “Wounded One” sitting at the right hand of the Father Alnilam.

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. (Revelation 14:9–11)

The Seventh-day Adventist church pioneers became the mouthpiece for this third angel’s message. It was in 1846—one of the key dates in the first Orion judgement cycle (at the Saiph point, the star of the white horse rider)—when those faithful Adventists who persevered in study after their disappointment began to unitedly proclaim the truth about the Sabbath commandment.

The first judgment cycle of the Orion clockAlnitak, the star that represents Jesus Himself, is clearly connected to this message because Jesus is the Lord of the Sabbath!

And he said unto them, that the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath. (Luke 6:5)

The number seven[45] stands for Jesus, the perfect sacrificial Lamb, as the very center of the seven stars of the Orion constellation. Hence, since Creation, He points to the seventh day of the week as holy, sanctified time. He warns against the desecration of the institutions (plural) established at Creation, which would mean receiving the mark of the beast.[46] In Revelation 18, “another voice from heaven” is heard with a warning comparable to that of the third angel’s message that should be considered together with the warning of the fourth angel about the fall of Babylon. This other voice belongs to Jesus Himself, standing in the center of the Orion clock, calling His people out of Babylon:

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. (Revelation 18:4-5)

The complete understanding of the mark of the beast has been made known through the light that was prophesied would come with the fourth angel. God’s sacred institution of marriage between one man and one woman established from the beginning of time is under attack and all those who agree with or participate in the counterfeit—homosexual marriage—established by the enemy, are receiving either the image or the mark of the beast. God is preparing His bride for the time when He will gather her, and she must make herself ready for that time by keeping herself pure, following His commandments whatever the cost.

Three angels in the midst of heavenThe plan for the execution of the harvest has finally been made plain. The revelation of the closing Orion cycle[47] unveils the Father’s appointed time for the gathering of His own. In the lines of Revelation 14, He carefully mapped out the story of the final harvest. With amazing precision, the times displayed on His Son’s clock depict its every stage like the chapters of a book.

The First Fruits

When the farmer goes to his fields to look for fruit, there is exceptional joy when he finds the first-ripe fruits that matured as a result of his labor. Hence, Revelation 14 begins with a glimpse of the joy of the Lord of the harvest when, after having checked the fields, He finds first fruits that are ready to be redeemed from the earth. The 144,000 are those “firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.”

And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb [Jesus] stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand… These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God. (From Revelation 14:1-5)

The Lamb on Mt. Zion in OrionThe 144,000 are standing near Jesus (the Lamb[48]), and the description of their character reveals that they have received the righteousness of their Savior. They are not pew warmers, but instead, they eagerly learn from Jesus, studying His word and receiving instruction through His Holy Spirit. Their leader is Jesus, not any church pastor! They stand valiantly for the truth even though they make enemies as a result. They refute doctrines such as “Once Saved, Always Saved”[49] with an It is Written, as their Redeemer did before when He was tempted by Satan.[50] The 144,000 stand apart from the lying leaders that are presently holding high positions in this world. As children of God, they do not lie.[51] Do these descriptions spark in you a desire to belong to that group?[52]

Receiving the grain is the purpose of the harvest and at the time of the gathering, it is carefully winnowed and tenderly separated. As firstfruits, the 144,000 are an incredibly special group for Jesus. They have been labored for and searched for with earnestness. God shines the spotlight on Jesus and His firstfruits on the Orion clock by beginning the portrayal of His harvest plan pointing to Jesus, the Lamb, represented by the star Alnitak[53] at the center and the 144,000 standing with Him on Mt. Zion![54] This is a sacred place—the throne of God—depicted by the three belt stars of Orion (Alnitak, Alnilam, Mintaka), from which radiant beams emanate. Those beams are the throne lines that indicate sacred points of time on either side of the clock when the Father especially appeals to His children to look up!

Through the study of the prophecies regarding each point on His closing Orion cycle, God the Father has allowed us to recognize the time when Jesus makes a very solemn declaration from the heavenly temple at the time of the right throne lines as part of the fulfillment of the seventh plague:[55]

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

God does not change. As He announced the beginning of the time of the heavenly judgment in 1844, He also reveals the end of Jesus’ ministry in the Most Holy Place of the heavenly sanctuary. According to the feast day ordinances described in the Bible, the high priest still had to perform various rituals at the end of the Day of Atonement. To end the heavenly Yom Kippur, Jesus, our heavenly High Priest, will first leave the Most Holy Place at the point marked on His clock, thus terminating one of the final phases of His intercessory work. This is the beginning of a time of great tribulation, ushering in the hour of temptation.[56] From then on, the 144,000 must stand faithful while God continues to gradually withdraw His Holy Spirit from the world as He pours out His increasing judgments upon the impenitent.[57] God’s faithful ones have been prepared through His Spirit for this time and by His strength, and with the knowledge of time, they will succeed in their mission.

April 27, 2020 begins a time that Jesus has looked forward to with eagerness. His sacrifice and ministry have long made provision for everyone, but now the time has come when everyone has made their decision and the final harvest can begin. While the world is plunged into the hour of temptation, the 144,000 will be gathered first, and they must learn a new song that will draw them ever closer to their Savior. They will learn this song from another group of harpers who have in turn learned their song directly from the Father.[58]

…having his [name and His[59]] Father’s name written in their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters,[60] and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: 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. (From Revelation 14:1-3)

The song that the 144,000 will learn resounds from the knowledge of Jesus’ clock in Orion that tells “the rest of the story” of His ministry on behalf of mankind. It is the song of self-sacrificing love that shines through in the symbolism of the clock of the Lamb. Each of the four beasts of the throne room depicts a different characteristic of the Savior,[61] and they are represented in Orion by the four outer stars. They also show His wounded hands (Betelgeuse and Bellatrix) and feet (Saiph and Rigel) pleading on behalf of mankind with tender love. The elders that bow in reverence to the Lord at the throne are portrayed around the clock as the 24-hour markers of the heavenly Day of Atonement.[62] The 144,000 sing their new song “before the throne” which gives a very important connecting detail to the Orion clock mentioned in Revelation 4:6:

The 24 elders around the throne in Orion

And before the throne there was a sea of glass [the Orion Nebula] like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. (Revelation 4:6)

All the mentioned elements of the clock give a clear connection to the source from which this song comes. The remnant[63]—those who believed the report of the fourth angel of Revelation 18 and received the pearls of truth as they heard the Father’s voice like the voice of many waters[64]—are depicted as the harpers[65] who will teach their new song to the 144,000. Since 2010, the harpers looked up to Jesus in the Orion clock and saw His sacrifice for humanity portrayed in that marvelous sight. Now the 144,000 have to learn the song of the harpers’ experience in knowing God intimately while they were finishing His mystery of time, exhibiting the same self-sacrificing character as their Savior—long before the first fruits could be found.

The 144,000 will learn about the prolongation of time that the church of Philadelphia had asked for with a Christ-like sacrifice in 2016, in fulfillment of what Jesus had prophesied in Revelation 7:

And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. (Revelation 7:2-3)

Through great sacrifice and tears, time was bought for the sealing of the 144,000, and now, in the closing cycle of the Orion clock, they are seen together with Jesus at the center of His clock, learning the message of hope that they will convey to others at the most difficult time in earth’s history. The name of Jesus as depicted in the Orion clock, Alnitak, the Wounded One, and God the Father’s name, TIME, are soon to be written on their foreheads—your forehead. Oh reader, may you be found worthy to be among that number by recognizing God’s calling in this time of the final harvest.

The Patience of the Saints

Before the harvest plan is laid out, an important criterion is given for all those who would be actively engaged in the harvest work and be part of His harvest.

Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. (Revelation 14:12)

Patience is highlighted, which relates to time in some form; it always involves a waiting time or delay. All the laborers that have sought to know God’s time have been tried with patience as they have waited eagerly for the fulfillment of their blessed hope. This patience is especially noted in the letter to the church of Philadelphia. They receive a special promise because of their patient endurance in waiting for God’s word to fulfill instead of abandoning His direction with wounded pride at the first disappointment:

Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. (Revelation 3:10)

The church of Philadelphia has endured many years of waiting time while studying to finish the mystery of God. They have persevered through seven Orion cycles[66] to reach the end with the final harvest and the coming of Jesus!

The study of the mystery of God reveals the importance of the two qualities that the patient saints exhibit. The first Orion cycle of the seven—the judgment cycle—warns against compromises that lead to the breaking of God’s commandments, and the message embodied in the High Sabbath List[67] shows the faith of Jesus that His people will also have!

This faith is what Jesus indicated that He would look for at the time of the final harvest.

…Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? (From Luke 18:8)

In order to answer Him positively, the understanding of that faith has been granted for all to embrace.

Comfort in Death

One of the seven blessings found in the Revelation is given as a foreword to the harvest, serving as an encouragement for God’s faithful children during the troublous time that would be ushered in as the Orion clock closing cycle would set in motion the final harvest sequence.

The closing cycle of the Orion clock

And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them. (Revelation 14:13)

This blessing has been a source of strength and assurance for God’s faithful children for generations. The Adventist pioneers embraced this promise in their time while eagerly awaiting the blessed hope.

Abundant light has been given to our people in these last days. Whether or not my life [Ellen White’s] is spared, my writings will constantly speak, and their work will go forward as long as time shall last. My writings are on file in the office, and even though I should not live, these words that have been given to me by the Lord will still have life and will speak to the people.

But my strength is yet spared, and I hope to continue to do much useful work. I may live until the coming of the Lord; but if I should not, I trust it may be said of me, “Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them.”—Letter 371, 1907 (Selected Messages 1:55, 56). {6BIO 137.8-9}

The labor they performed laid the foundation for further revelations from God at the appointed time and their works have followed them to this day.

This blessing is pronounced at a key point on the Orion clock. After seeing the depiction of the three angels on the clock in the midst of heaven, a voice is heard from heaven that corresponds to the Father (represented by Alnilam) giving a blessing on those who die in the Lord (Jesus, Alnitak). The Spirit responds with the result of the blessing. This divine exchange is thus in the Orion clock at the throne lines just before the closing cycle begins:

The blessing on those who die in the Lord

God knew His children would need this assurance of rest in Him at the time of the final harvest when death would become widespread due to the Coronavirus crisis. It is especially poignant for all the martyrs whose loyalty to God will yet be severely tested. Their testimony will be vital for the kingdom of God, since their number must be fulfilled[68] during this final harvest. This blessing is a special promise and comfort for the righteous who live in an unpredictable world where death is never far away.

The Wheat Harvest

The plan for the final harvest presented to the apostle John by the angel in Revelation 14 has been an unsolved mystery for generations and most Bible commentaries gloss over an attempt to interpret it. It’s no wonder, because the knowledge of God’s clock is the key to understand precisely what the passages portray and the timing of the stages of the harvest. In a way that only God can do, He included each detail to describe how this harvest would play out on the closing cycle of the Orion clock. Only those who would heed Jesus’ counsel to look up would learn from the heavenly signs that He would display at the end of time and connect them with the corresponding Bible verses.

The understanding of the interplay of Jesus’ clock in Orion and the Father’s clock in the Mazzaroth was necessary to have all parts of the script to tell the whole story. Each part fits perfectly and it is heaven’s appointed guide for God’s children in this trying time of great tribulation. May the knowledge provided, serve the purpose of strengthening and helping God’s people to endure till the time when the great Harvester ends the harvest and is reunited with His faithful ones at the end of this closing cycle!

As the apostle John looked up to the heavenly canvass,[69] he was pointed by the angel to a special area of the chosen constellation that would be understood one day as God’s clock. Isn’t the Orion constellation a worthy place as it is located distinctly in the night sky? John beheld the Lord of the harvest, ready to begin the work He has been waiting so long for. The apostle describes the scene with which the harvest texts begin with the following words:

And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. (Revelation 14:14)

In this scene, specific details are given about Jesus that serve as time markers to determine exactly when the scene would be enacted. Jesus is seen sitting on a white cloud with a golden crown on his head and with a sharp sickle in His hand. In the constellation of Orion, Jesus is seen in the middle of the clock where the star Alnitak[70] shines brightly and is located above the “white cloud” of the Orion Nebula. This is a beautiful depiction that men throughout time would have been able to locate in the night sky. However, the picture painted by Revelation 14:14 is not complete until Jesus is seen with a golden crown on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand. The combination of the Father’s clock on the Mazzaroth with Jesus’ clock in Orion is interwoven in this imagery to give certainty to the time. All elements must be in place at the time indicated. Only the Lord who created the heavens could orchestrate such a magnificent depiction.

The word “white” associates the outer star Saiph with the scene, since this star represents Jesus as the Rider on the white horse in connection with Revelation 6:2:

And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. (Revelation 6:2)

Since the beginning of the Orion clock at Creation,[71] mankind passed by the Saiph point many times in the eight cycles of the clock, because Saiph marks the beginning and the end of each Orion cycle. This could explain why the rider of the white horse is described as having many crowns at the time of Jesus’ return.

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. (Revelation 19:11-12)

If we want to know which of these clock cycles or Saiph points marks the beginning of the final harvest, we must consider that a heavenly event on the Father’s clock should accompany the Bible texts to mark the heavenly decision of the crowning of Jesus for the final harvest as the King who comes with many crowns.

The crown that Jesus is seen wearing in Revelation 14:14 must have been given to Him at or before a point marked by the star Saiph, since this is the text that mentions that a “crown was given unto him”. Therefore, Revelation 14:14 must happen afterwards, because He is already seen “having on his head a golden crown.” The interplay of Jesus’ and the Father’s clocks will now reveal how and when this final harvest crown was given to Jesus.

Of course, we would suspect that the final harvest should begin with the last of the seven Orion judgment cycles, but we must ask ourselves: Was there a celestial event at or in the segment before the Saiph point of January 20, 2020 where we see the scene of the crowning of Jesus?

The annular solar eclipse of December 26, 2019

On December 26, 2019, shortly before reaching Saiph on the Orion clock, there was a beautiful annular solar eclipse that can be interpreted as the “crown” that Jesus is later wearing![72] People all over the world witnessed this magnificent annular eclipse and commented on the beauty of the visible golden crown but were unaware of the prophetic significance of this sign being displayed on the Father’s Mazzaroth clock.

The annular solar eclipse of December 26, 2019 In this heavenly scene, only the outer ring of the sun was visible, which draws the attention to its outer layer, which is called the sun’s “corona” (literally “crown”).

Is it pure coincidence that the first cases of the coronavirus were discovered in the segment of the Orion clock[73] marked by this annular eclipse, and that this is the segment that comes immediately before the Saiph point? The next phase of the epidemic came precisely at the Saiph point on January 20, 2020, when the coronavirus was confirmed to be human-to-human transferrable. It must be significant that the coronavirus is highlighted on the Father’s clock as an earthly event that directly points to the many crowns that Jesus wears in the time of the final harvest.

Still, there is one more detail to the scene in Revelation 14:14 that leads us to the point in time when the final harvest began. The sharp sickle that Jesus is seen holding in His hand is the harvesting tool that He will use. In ancient Israel, it was the new sickle moon that gave the months and seasons of the harvest. Likewise, it is the moon that the Creator depicts with the symbol of this sickle.

Saiph, the white horse rider with a crown

The knowledge of the times for the sightings of the first crescent moons on the Father’s Mazzaroth clock combined with Jesus’ Orion clock is the key that will provide the details to determine which months mark the fulfillment of God’s harvest prophecies.

The first visible crescent new moon of January 27 is the nearest to the Saiph date, and it is the first new moon of the closing cycle of the Orion clock. It falls within the segment where the white cloud is, upon which Jesus sits in this scene.

It is only during this closing Orion cycle in 2020 that God has revealed a relationship between the first crescent new moons of the Father’s clock and the events of the Orion clock, and this, combined with the description of the sickles in Revelation 14, allows a person to determine exactly when the months of the final harvest fall. The Father has provided the necessary understanding to discover the exact application of His word.

As the apostle John continued to gaze upon the heavenly scene presented before him by the angel, he describes what is next depicted on the Orion clock:

And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. (Revelation 14:15)

Rigel, coming out of the temple in heaven

Another harvest actor described as an angel coming out of the temple comes on the scene. Where would John have seen a temple in Orion, from which this angel could have come out? This temple is located in the middle of the clock where the three belt stars shine brightly, representing the majesty of this area. They form a symbol of God’s throne or seat, and therefore also the place where His temple is.[74] The four outer stars of the constellation are the “angels,” all emerging from the center of the clock, sent out with a message for the final harvest. The star Saiph already had a role at the beginning of the scene (and cycle) with Jesus on the white horse with His crown and sickle. Therefore, the apostle’s view would have moved toward the next outer star, Rigel, which is seen coming directly from the temple announcing to the newly crowned King of the harvest that the time for reaping has come at last! Finally, in this seventh cycle of God’s clock since the time of the judgment began in 1844, it can be said, “the harvest of the earth is ripe.”

Rigel is associated with the pale horse in Revelation 6, the rider of which is named Death. The increase in coronavirus deaths is fitting to the Rigel segment, and key escalations also followed this point on the clock, especially in the New World. The description of the work of the pale horse rider on the earth also fits the present crisis with its mention of hunger, which the world is experiencing under lockdown and with looming food shortages.

And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.” (Revelation 6:8)

As this angel, the angel of death, brings upon the world more difficult circumstances, the hearts of men are being revealed for what they are.[75] A brief look at the daily news shows the work of hunger and death that is being wrought on the earth during this segment of Jesus’ clock marked by Rigel. The world is experiencing a situation never seen before, and many are being left without recourse, panicking for what might come next. Therefore, in a loving gesture, God makes plain that He knows the circumstances and that He oversees the affairs of men providing for the needs of His children and making the truth clear for all to find hope and not be deceived by the enemy. There are artful schemes being planned to snatch the fruits from Jesus’ hand, so He exposes them to protect His own from such attacks.

The order given by this angel as of March 3, 2020, was that Jesus could begin to reap the earth. This angel was doing what every good clock hand does: indicating when a particular time had come. This was the point set by God for all the members of the church of Philadelphia to have been found and sealed. This church (of harpers) has a message to convey, a song to teach; they had the privilege of being co-workers with God to share His light with the world to find the 144,000 first fruits to be gathered by the Lord of the harvest! It was at that point that just as it appeared that the church of Philadelphia would fall, two members were cleansed through baptism and brought back into the fold.

Shortly thereafter, on Sabbath, March 7, it was announced that the first case of coronavirus was detected in Paraguay. It was a 32-year-old man who had come from Ecuador and entered Paraguay on March 3! The second case of coronavirus reported was an 83 year old man who came to Paraguay from Argentina, and on March 3, he developed the coronavirus symptoms. On March 11, the news announced that there would be a 15-day period in Paraguay when the government would oblige all schools and public events, including church services, to be canceled to minimize gatherings of large numbers of people. The time had come, and Rigel was making his call.

As the apostle John continued to gaze in amazement on the scene shown to him, he beheld the moment when Jesus, the Son of Man, begins the harvesting action of thrusting in His sickle:

And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped. (Revelation 14:16)

The time had come for Jesus to do what He had waited patiently to do through all seven end-time Orion cycles. With Philadelphia intact, and at the request of Rigel—the angel coming out of the temple—Jesus thrusts in His sickle. Should this happen at the next time marker, the right throne lines of April 27?

The Father’s clock on the Mazzaroth marks this eventful day with the beautiful light of a planet that represents Jesus: the bright and morning star, Venus,[76] which reached its maximum brightness on that day.[77] This would correspond to the moment when Jesus declares “it is done,” announcing that His first fruits have been found mature, ready to be gathered during the following segment from the right throne lines to the next star, Bellatrix, on May 20, 2020.

Every cycle of the Orion clock spans different calendar dates, and it is only this last cycle where those dates align closely with the natural seasons in a way that fulfills the sequence of the harvest of Revelation 14. Shortly after the throne lines, the month of May begins, which is the month of the wheat harvest in Israel.

Havesting and Ingathering Seasons in Israel

The wheat and the grapes are the two crops involved in Revelation 14, and together the time of their harvest falls comfortably within the last cycle of the Orion clock, with May beginning right after the right throne lines of April 27-29, 2020. From then on, those among the good wheat, who have received Christ into their heart, will forever retain Him, while those who had not received Him to mature in time, never will.[78]

It is amazing how God is sharing His plan for the final harvest, so that every participant can be prepared for their part in the work. Now the reaping of the final harvest may begin!

The table above is only a guide to the times, however. According to the biblical calendar, the months are determined by the moon, and therefore the new (first crescent) moons should mark the months of the harvest. This means that the time of the wheat harvest actually spans from the new moon of April 25, when the sickle is thrust in, to the new moon of May 25,[79] during which time many things take place.

Jesus thrusts in His sickle

This is one of the most joyful times for the Lord when the 144,000 first fruits will be gathered to His garner, where He will train them to labor for His kingdom in the remaining time of the harvest until the work is completed at the left throne lines on the other side of the clock.

The clock segment from the right throne lines to the star Bellatrix falls within the time of the wheat harvest, and this segment is one twelfth of the clock, or one hour. During this special hour, the 144,000 will be taught from heaven, as dreams and Bible evidence[80] have indicated. They will partake of the heavenly bread provided for this time in the message about God’s clock and His time, which will grant them the portions of the Spirit needed until the end. This is the time when the “workers of the eleventh hour” will be “redeemed” from the earth and taught.

Working in the harvest In order to gather the 144,000 into the Lord’s barn[81], a Refuge was prepared at His request, where heaven draws nigh to earth. The 144,000 may indeed be brought together for an “hour” with the church of Philadelphia, to learn the heavenly message at the Refuge—a message from the throne of God. At the same time, the “hour” of temptation takes place “on the earth” outside the Refuge, where the knowledge is not given. If the gathering fulfills in that way, then in a certain sense the redeemed would be hiding in special chambers for a little moment—as a reflection of the real call at the opposite throne lines!

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)

It is easy to visualize a scenario like this as the world is eager for the coronavirus lockdowns to be lifted so people can go out again, but those who know the voice of the Lord will understand that while He invites His people to dine with Him in study, this is a time of indignation upon others who do not know Him. For those who venture outside in civil disobedience during that hour, a different kind of meal may await them.

On May 4, 2020 (near the beginning of this “lunch hour” for the 144,000) a very important sign is displayed on the Father’s clock on the Mazzaroth, which the apostle John recorded the following way:

And I saw an angel [messenger] standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; that ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. (Revelation 19:17-18)

The invitation to the feast of the fowls He saw the moment when the planet Mercury, the messenger, stands in conjunction with the sun, which represents the Bridegroom, Jesus. From the perspective of the earth, Mercury goes behind the sun, which means the messenger is not directing his voice toward the earth, but out away from the sun to the heavens beyond: the realm of the angels—the good angels in this case—who are called by their general to come to the earth to take vengeance on the rejecters of God’s grace. This is the invitation to the meal of the heavenly birds.

On that fateful day, which is the Day of Atonement, or Judgment, based on the seasons at God’s temple in Paraguay, the sentence will be spoken against all those who willingly refused God’s convicting Spirit regarding the truths that He revealed to them, such as the truth about OSAS being a heresy. God gives heavenly signs in mercy to warn His children on earth of the dangers they face—spiritually as well as physically.

It should not be ignored that the feast of the birds may also be representative of the decimation of common currencies, which are represented in the Bible by men, horsemen, etc. The kings and chief men described in the verse could point to high-ranking “reserve currencies”, for example, that bring the world economy to its knees by their “death”.

This agrees with the sign of the burning down of Notre Dame last year on the same Hebrew day—the Paraguayan Yom Kippur. The iconic Roman church represents the Babylonian system today, which is poised for utter ruin.

The picture that the Bible paints of the meal of the birds is not a pretty sight. Violent death could become much more commonplace. Many will be part of the supper of the great God as meat for the inhabitants of the skies. But worse, in this group are those who refuse the Holy Spirit’s instruction and will now be “devoured” by those angels who would have protected them. This stands in stark contrast to the blessing of dining on the bread of heaven and receiving the invitation to the wedding supper of the Lamb.[82]

The Grape Harvest

Once the first fruits are brought in, God uses those gathered ones to serve as laborers in His vineyard during the next harvest. The grape harvest is described in Revelation 14 in simple terms, but when we look at God’s interlocking clocks of Orion and the Mazzaroth, we see that there is more to it than meets the eye.

Another angel comes to John’s view as in wonder, he continues to observe the work of the final harvest of the earth. God shows him the interaction of His heavenly bodies far into the future when a remnant would finally receive the understanding of the scenes he witnesses. Jesus had already thrust in His sickle for the wheat, and now another angel is seen coming out of the temple. Like Jesus, this angel also has a sickle!

And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. (Revelation 14:17)

Bellatrix, coming out of the temple in heaven in Orion

The star Bellatrix represents this next actor in the harvest, and having a feminine name, it represents a woman—the “church” of the 144,000. Since she holds a sickle, she will have an active role during the harvest. The name Bellatrix means beautiful warrior, which depicts how Jesus sees His first fruits: beautiful souls for whom He has labored. They are warriors[83] for God, endowed with the heavenly knowledge of time, to withstand the enemy while harvesting for Jesus’ kingdom through the remaining segments of the clock. They must endure the most trying time ever seen in human history, but God will be their sustenance and strength.

Bellatrix corresponds to the black horse from Revelation 6, which is associated with the economy, commerce, and famine. At that point, the world will be plunged into great distress, with hunger resulting from the measures being implemented by the nations to combat the coronavirus crisis. The economy is already crumbling with the effects of the coronavirus restrictions, and now God’s clock points to exactly that theme:

…I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, a measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine. (From Revelation 6:5-6)

Additionally, one may expect rioting and turmoil to increase as a result of oppressive coronavirus restrictions. However, the Holy Spirit (oil) and the sacrifice of Jesus (wine) will be ever-present in the minds of the 144,000 as they cling to Him to live righteously in a time when the Holy Spirit is being withdrawn from the wicked world[84] and more abominable schemes are hatched and executed to rid the earth of God’s faithful ones.

The Bellatrix point (May 20, 2020) marks an especially important prophetic milestone: the termination of the waiting time of the 1335 days of Daniel 12.

Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. (Daniel 12:12)

As the 144,000 learn the new song and gain the understanding of the mystery of God, their hour of heavenly counsel draws to a close on May 20, 2020, when they will receive the invitation to the marriage supper of the Lamb—the blessing of the 1335 days.[85] From then on, they will extend the blessing to all who will accept it with willingness to give their lives in sacrificial love for the truth.

Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. (Matthew 22:9)

Amid the most terrible circumstances on the earth, rays of hope will brighten the dark path of the martyrs—the “last fruits” who give their physical lives for the truth. As the 144,000 are represented by good wheat, the martyrs are represented by good grapes. Their Savior who suffered with them will not tarry. They will be reunited with Him to rejoice in His presence. How Jesus longs for that reunion! When they learn about what He has prepared for them, they will be strengthened to endure until the end without taking the mark of the beast and thus yielding their allegiance to God.

To the mind of Jesus the gladness of the wedding festivities pointed forward to the rejoicing of that day when He shall bring home His bride to the Father’s house, and the redeemed with the Redeemer shall sit down to the marriage supper of the Lamb. {AH 503.2}

The 144,000 will echo the words of Jesus in a loud cry that exposes great Babylon and calls His people to come out of the crumbling city. They will share God’s weapon to equip all who heed their warning to reward Babylon double for her wicked deeds.

…Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. … Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. (From Revelation 18:4,6)

In the prophetic enactment, the heavenly scene changes and the prophet John now sees another angel coming out from the altar to give the order for the final stage of the harvest. This comes at a time when eternal decisions are being made as martyrs are strengthened by the 144,000 and most people could recognize that the end must come. In the heavenly sanctuary, Jesus performs the last acts of His ministry as High Priest after having come out of the Most Holy Place.

And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire… (From Revelation 14:18)

Two specific characteristics are given about this angel: he comes out from the altar and has power over fire. The assignment of Betelgeuse to this role in the harvest plan is a natural fit, but the characteristics of this red supergiant on the clock of the Son, where it shows the face of the sacrificial calf, are only the backdrop for other actors.

On the stage of the Mazzaroth, the clock of the Father visually enacts what the Bible says in words: he has power over fire. The fire is played by the sun, and on June 21—the day before the Betelgeuse mark—“the sun shall be darkened” as the moon exercises power over the fiery sun.

Partial solar eclispe on the galactic equator: The Mazzaroth clock synchronizes with the Orion clock In an event of exceedingly rare precision, this annular eclipse takes place at the exact moment (within about a minute) when both heavenly bodies are centered on the galactic equator, the very moment that defines the summer solstice!

Flanking this solar eclipse are two penumbral lunar eclipses on June 5 and July 5, covering the Old World and the New, respectively.[86] Taken together, these two partial eclipses, centered around the unique solstice eclipse, count for one total lunar eclipse covering the whole world.

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,[87] and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: (Mathew 24:29)

The clock of the Son ticks together with the clock of the Father, because they are united as One. The synchronization in this final cycle shows the accuracy with which God has planned for the last harvest of souls. It is at the outstretched hand of Orion—the hand for which Betelgeuse is the shoulder—where this solar eclipse takes place! The hand of Orion reaching up to the ecliptic with his club, illustrates the meshing of the two clock wheels—the Mazzaroth around the ecliptic, and Orion at the Betelgeuse point—both pointing to the same time like two cogwheels turning together, as Ezekiel saw.

Partial solar eclispe in the hand of Orion: The Mazzaroth clock synchronizes with the Orion clock

The odds of an eclipse at exactly that moment are extremely rare, but the One who guides the heavenly bodies has orchestrated this to occur just prior to the Betelgeuse mark (June 22, 2020), so that when Betelgeuse gives his message, it will have been demonstrated that he had power over fire. The red color of Betelgeuse is a symbol for blood, or the sacrificial calf that was offered on the altar depicted in the middle of the Orion clock at the temple area. The altar on the Father’s clock is at the constellation of Taurus, beside Orion, who may be seen as the Priest who ministers there.

Betelgeuse, coming out of the altar and having power over fire

The following day, June 23, the lunar sickle appears again. Jesus, as the High Priest finishing His duties, would proceed to pick up coals from the altar of sacrifice[88] and bring them into the temple to the altar of incense to make more smoke ascend in representation of the prayers of the saints, rising in copious quantities at that troubled time. The fire of the sun and the red color of the supergiant Betelgeuse together make a fitting representation of these hot coals that will be used as an instrument of destruction against Babylon, as the text of the seventh plague indicates.[89]

The Bible associates the star Betelgeuse with war and bloodshed, as it represents the rider on the red horse who takes peace from the earth and is given a great sword. Therefore, this point on the clock (June 22, 2020) foreshadows great and bloody wars on the earth.[90]

And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. (Revelation 6:4)

The news testifies daily of the increased hostility of the citizens toward the nations and between nation and nation as each one tries to “defend” its own against the “coronavirus enemy.” Influential voices such as the UN and the pope have called for a ceasefire amid the coronavirus crisis,[91] but this is only the “peace and safety” before the sudden destruction declared in God’s word.[92] The wars among and within the angry nations during this period will ultimately leave the world terribly destroyed. Betelgeuse, having power over the fire, has been described as the star that would one day explode in a supernova[93] and serve as the all-cleansing fire to execute the final judgment of God and purify the earth forever. God will ultimately destroy those who destroy the earth.[94]

In the harvest depiction, the apostle John hears this angel communicating an important message to the only other angel seen still holding a sickle, namely Bellatrix (representing the 144,000).

…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. (From Revelation 14:18)

The 144,000 first fruits are called to gather the fully ripe grapes of the vine of the earth. Until this point, they will have been earnestly laboring to extend the invitation to the marriage supper and give the loud cry, calling people out of Babylon. The message of the angel that comes out from the altar indicates a positive result from their labor, as it reveals that there is a good yield of grapes that are ripe for the harvest, ready to give their sacrifice. These ripe grapes represent the martyrs who are described as being beheaded for Christ’s kingdom.[95] They follow the example of their Savior in sacrifice, knowing that their suffering will be but for a little moment, and very soon they will be reunited with their Master. This hope will help them to remain steadfast. May you fulfill your part in this important calling to gather the “last fruits” for the Kingdom and be counted among the laborers for the Master, so the number of the martyrs can be fulfilled during this segment.[96]

The two armies [good and evil] will stand distinct and separate, and this distinction will be so marked that many who shall be convinced of truth [they loved the truth already, but they just needed to see it in clear contrast] will come on the side of God’s commandment-keeping people. When this grand work is to take place in the battle, prior to the last closing conflict, many will be imprisoned, many will flee for their lives from cities and towns, and many will be martyrs for Christ’s sake in standing in defense of the truth. {Mar 199.3}

Once the Betelgeuse segment comes to an end, no one will be invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb anymore, and the call to come out of Babylon will fall silent. The allotted time for taking action will have expired and the harvest of good grapes will have been collected. This period is terminated on September 3, 2020 by the left throne lines on God’s clock.

The next scene that the apostle John witnesses in vision is a fearful one. He sees the vine of the earth being gathered and cast into God’s winepress:

And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. (Revelation 14:19)

The grapes are cast into the winepress

However, when the throne lines have arrived, the four lunar months of the grape harvest will not have completely ended. But John does not see the fresh clusters anymore in his vision. What he sees is the end of the season, when the grapes are not good for eating, but only to be pressed into wine. This indicates that the vine of the earth that is still being gathered at this point is what is left over after the good clusters have been picked. These are the overripe grapes ready for the vintage. This cannot refer to the harvesting of the martyrs, because the martyrs are not destined for God’s wrath! They remained faithful unto death during a terrible time on the earth and will receive Smyrna’s crown of life.

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)

At the beginning of the left throne lines, the Lord of the harvest will finish His work for the heavenly Day of Atonement by throwing down the censor[97] as He leaves the heavenly sanctuary for the second and last time. At the right throne lines segment, He had declared “It is done” when the wheat was ready for harvest. Then, at the left throne lines on September 3, it is the ultimate end of grace. Jesus is not even in the sanctuary anymore to plead His precious blood for man, and His restraining Spirit is then fully withdrawn from the unrepentant inhabitants of the earth. Only the 144,000 remain—pure and spotless as witnesses for God, contrasted with the thoroughly evil world around them. It is a very solemn time indeed!

All those who will make up God’s kingdom will have been harvested, and God will remember the sins of Babylon. All the impenitent who refused God’s invitation of escape will then suffer with Babylon during her hour of ruin. The time has come for her to be rewarded for the bloodshed of all the ages.

For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities [e.g. the killing of all the martyrs of all the ages, up to September 2, 2020]. (Revelation 18:5)

The prophecies of the complete economic collapse of Babylon from Revelation 18 will come to pass during this hour of destruction—one twelfth of the clock cycle—from September 7 to September 28. The end of that hour is marked by the feast of Yom Kippur—the Day of Atonement, or Day of Judgment for those who refused the atoning work of Christ.

And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth. (Revelation 18:23-24)

With the Holy Spirit having completely withdrawn from the world by this point, only abiding still with the 144,000, who alone remain alive among the righteous, it will be a trying time indeed. The message of time will sustain them with the knowledge that their tribulation will last but a little while if they remain faithful. Their fidelity during that hour is inestimably important for the victory of God’s kingdom.[98] They must endure this time without yielding to the extreme pressure to compromise when all earthly support is taken away. Though the world seeks their death, if they are faithful until the end, it will soon be said of them:

These are they [the 144,000] which came out of great tribulation;” they have passed through the time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation; they have endured the anguish of the time of Jacob’s trouble; they have stood without an intercessor through the final outpouring of God’s judgments. But they have been delivered, for they have “washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” “In their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault” before God. “Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple: and He that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.” They have seen the earth wasted with famine and pestilence, the sun having power to scorch men with great heat, and they themselves have endured suffering, hunger, and thirst. But “they shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.” {GC 648.3}

The Seven Spirits of God

The time of the last Orion cycle is a time of increasing trouble and heartache on the earth. As Jesus ceases His ministry in the heavenly sanctuary, the Holy Spirit is withdrawn from those who refuse, like Judas, to cooperate with Him in humility. Many will commit the unpardonable sin, and He will no longer strive with them to restrain them from their evil inclinations. But this does not happen all at once.

In the Revelation of Jesus Christ, where the Orion clock is described in symbols, Jesus is depicted at its center as a slain Lamb: Alnitak, the Wounded One. In the description of this Lamb, there is another riddle that can be solved only with the knowledge of the Orion clock!

And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns[99] and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. (Revelation 5:6)

While the Holy Spirit is omnipresent, He is described as being sent into the earth, as on a divine mission. This has never been truer than now in this last cycle, when He is visiting the people of earth one last time, seeking their heart’s loyalty to Jesus before He stops ministering on their behalf.

There is a prophecy about the Savior that speaks of the Spirit that would rest upon Him:

And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the Lord [1] shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom [2] and understanding [3], the spirit of counsel [4] and might [5], the spirit of knowledge [6] and of the fear of the Lord [7]; (Isaiah 11:1-2)

Seven Spirits of God are listed here by name, and they have a relationship to the Orion clock and the Lamb with seven eyes at its center, to show how His seven Spirits are visiting the people in the world—and withdrawing from the unrepentant. When one considers that “the Spirit of the Lord” is a general expression that includes the other six, then one can see how it must be in the center, connected to the other six in the six clock segments around it. These six Spirits are distributed counterclockwise beginning with the Spirit of wisdom at Saiph:

The sevenfold Holy Spirit

One amazing thing about this is how it is a perfect confirmation of how the Spirit is working in the harvest time! At the beginning of the cycle—“at the entry of the city”[100]—the Spirit of wisdom cried out for the simple to come to her Refuge in Philadelphia and receive instruction.

Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things. For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips. (Proverbs 8:6-7)

Then the Spirit of understanding followed with His preparatory work in the hearts of His people as the truth regarding the OSAS deception was settled in all their minds. Only the obedient would be able to receive His Spirit of counsel, which involves repentance! Those who resisted Him have severed their connection with the divine. This is the hour when the Holy Spirit desires to impart a special anointing on those who remain, that they may hear the timely counsel to the church of Sardis, with whom today’s Protestants may be likened:

Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. (Revelation 3:3)

Having received the counsel of Time during the wheat harvest, God’s first fruits will be empowered to give the Loud Cry with the Spirit of might, through which many mighty works will be wrought at their hands. The contrast will increase with those who, lacking His Spirit, will betray their former brethren for their own supposed advantage. Nevertheless, the clarity with which the truth will be given will bring conviction to the hearts of many that they must flee their churches, led by Jezebel in Rome,[101] as the conditions in the world quickly deteriorate. By the testimony of the 144,000, myriads will be strengthened to stand for the right, though it cost their lives.

Meanwhile, as the portion that remains of the Spirit of God on earth decreases with every passing segment, His reach increases. The knowledge of the true mark of the beast, like the eyesalve for Laodicea, originally given to the wise of Philadelphia, finally reaches the farthest parts of the world, bringing all humanity to a decision in conclusion of the third angel’s warning message. God’s Spirit of knowledge goes through the whole earth—to every individual human being—giving them an opportunity to receive salvation and “worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters”[102]—who “created man in His own image… male and female.”[103] This brings the first angel’s message to its conclusion as well.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom

At that same time—the left throne lines—the last martyr will have given his testimony, and the Spirit of knowledge will have done His work, withdrawing from the earth to leave only fear of the Lord for the wicked inhabitants of the earth. Not dwelling in them, His Spirit spooks them with terror as the dramatic physical events of the sixth seal[104] unfold and Babylon falls into financial and physical ruins, concluding the second and thus all three angels’ messages.

Only the 144,000, who received the fourth angel’s message and were sealed with life,[105] retain the Spirits of God, including a sanctified fear of the Lord. It is the Spirit of the fear of the Lord who, for those who will be raised to life in the end, will prove to be the beginning of wisdom[106] as the great multitude of redeemed are led into all truth during the star travel to Orion. Then, when God’s people are caught up by the Spirit of the Lord, the earth will be completely void of every Holy Spirit. May your lot be with the righteous who keep God’s commandments!

Faithful to the End

None of the 144,000 need to despair, thinking that they are not in favor with God because they must endure tribulation and were not previously raptured. Instead, their suffering during the last segment of the Orion closing cycle will draw them even closer to their Savior as they understand that they must follow His example of firm resistance to temptation, being kept by the power of God through faith.[107]

God will take care of His 144,000 first fruits through the terrible ordeal of the destruction of Babylon. Other faithful individuals who have gone before have had similar experiences being tested to the utmost[108] that may inspire courage.

The last act of the harvest (now vintage) that was presented to the apostle John is a very graphic one with a sentence for the impenitent and a promise in a riddle from the Father that will serve as an anchor of hope for His faithful children to endure to the end!

And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs. (Revelation 14:20)

Saiph, the winepress is trodden without the city

John saw that the winepress, filled with inedible, overripe grapes—the rejectors of God’s mercy—is trodden. This imagery, which God used to convey the utter destruction that will take place, depicts a very fearful sight. Jewish history provides a vivid picture of such a great slaughter in the fall of the city of Betar using similar language:

Eighty thousand Romans entered Betar and slaughtered the men, women, and children until blood flowed from the doorways and sewers. Horses sank up until their nostrils and the rivers of blood lifted up rocks weighing forty se’ah and flowed into the sea where its stain was noticeable for a distance of four mil. (Jewish Talmud, Gittin 57)

God promises that the winepress will be trodden when Jesus’ bride[109] is no longer on the earth (being done “without the city”). While the saints travel toward the Orion Nebula, the winepress will finally be trodden under the feet of Orion, as the clock points again to his feet, beginning with Saiph. This must be the terrifying moment when the great hail at the end of the seventh trumpet[110] and seventh plague[111] will pummel the planet. Those who did not heed God’s loving warnings and entreaties will meet a fearful fate at that time.

Even unto the horse bridles The mention of “horse bridles” in the prophecy draws the attention to the Horsehead Nebula, which from the earth’s point of view is in the vicinity of the star of Jesus, Alnitak, and thus at the center of the Orion clock. This nebula is a cloud that resembles a horse, symbolizing Jesus taking His place as the conquering King of kings when He comes.[112] Its reported distance from Earth is 1600 light-years (the Bible’s symbolic 1600 furlongs).[113] This imagery for His coming is a wonderful affirmation given to strengthen the hearts of the 144,000 to endure till the end, when they will see their King coming for their deliverance[114] at the appointed time.

As the heart of the Father cannot be separated from that of His Son, so the Mazzaroth cannot refrain from telling of the wonderful scene of Jesus’ return. The bright and morning star that represents Jesus comes to the constellation of Leo to enact a special depiction of the Lion of the tribe of Judah returning to save His people, as foretold in the following vision:

Soon our eyes were drawn to the east, for a small black cloud had appeared, about half as large as a man’s hand, which we all knew was the sign of the Son of man. We all in solemn silence gazed on the cloud as it drew nearer and became lighter, glorious, and still more glorious, till it was a great white cloud. The bottom appeared like fire; a rainbow was over the cloud, while around it were ten thousand angels, singing a most lovely song; and upon it sat the Son of man. His hair was white and curly and lay on His shoulders; and upon His head were many crowns. His feet had the appearance of fire; in His right hand was a sharp sickle; in His left, a silver trumpet. His eyes were as a flame of fire, which searched His children through and through. Then all faces gathered paleness, and those that God had rejected gathered blackness. Then we all cried out, “Who shall be able to stand? Is my robe spotless?” Then the angels ceased to sing, and there was some time of awful silence, when Jesus spoke: “Those who have clean hands and pure hearts shall be able to stand; My grace is sufficient for you.” At this our faces lighted up, and joy filled every heart. And the angels struck a note higher and sang again, while the cloud drew still nearer the earth. {EW 15.2}

The silver trumpet in the hand of the Lion of the tribe of Judah Exactly on the Day of Atonement[115] on September 28, Venus positions itself at the left paw of Leo depicting the silver trumpet that Jesus holds in His left hand. It is the trump of God, fittingly represented on the heavenly canvas as being held by Leo which represents Jesus as King, having been given the power of the Father.[116] At this point, the hour of Babylon comes to its end and the great trumpet of Yom Kippur[117] sounds to announce that the judgment upon Babylon is finished and the treading of the winepress can follow. The 144,000 have stood their time of test and will be delivered speedily!

As Jesus blows the silver trumpet that day, the redeemed of all ages—together with those beloved ones who were recently martyred in earth’s culminating tribulation—are called to arise[118] from their deep sleep to behold their Blessed Hope. Jesus has come to take them home!

For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. 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: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. (1 Thessalonians 4:15–18)

At last, God’s character has been vindicated through the testimony of faithfulness in desperate adversity. Yet through all that the faithful company had to endure, as the understanding of God’s clock and their high calling[119] brought their faith to sight, they finally exclaim:

…that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. (From Romans 8:18)

Jesus, their Forerunner, drank the cup of suffering before them, and it is in His strength that the 144,000 have gained the final victory over the beast. They kept the commandments of God and demonstrated the faith of Jesus, whatever the cost, patiently persevering throughout the fiercest battle against Satan himself.[120]

And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them [the 144,000] 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. 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. 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. (Revelation 15:2-4)

The sickle in the hand of the Lion of the tribe of Judah After blowing the silver trumpet at the conclusion of Yom Kippur, He uses the sickle in His other hand. On October 3, 2020, the bright and morning star is in conjunction with Regulus, the handle of Leo’s sickle. The Lord of the harvest is ready to draw the redeemed up to the clouds of heaven. The great Sickle asterism of Leo is the final sickle of the harvest from the Father’s Mazzaroth clock, and it will be used to reap the redeemed from the earth, so that the winepress can be trodden without the Holy city.

The bride (the 144,000, living and the risen faithful ones) has made herself ready for this time, as she has gone through the fire of tribulation and has kept her garments white. The church has embraced the righteousness of Jesus, exercising faith in Him by perfect obedience to His law.

On the heavenly canvas, the church is depicted by the constellation Virgo, which on October 3 has the Bridegroom (represented by the sun[121]) and is thus clothed with His righteousness.[122] Mercury, representing the angelic host, is at the feet of Virgo, as the cloud of witnesses that is ready to carry her up to her Savior. They have waited long, but their joy has finally come.

The bride is raptured

The clock has come full circle. As the great hand of Time strikes the Saiph hour on October 5, 2020, seven days after Jesus called forth the sleeping saints with the silver trumpet, the redeemed head home. As victorious conquerors through the blood of the Lamb of God, their time on this earth has finally ended, and eternity with the One who surrendered eternity for us has just begun:

There the redeemed shall know, even as also they are known. The loves and sympathies which God Himself has planted in the soul shall there find truest and sweetest exercise. The pure communion with holy beings, the harmonious social life with the blessed angels and with the faithful ones of all ages who have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb, the sacred ties that bind together “the whole family in heaven and earth” (Ephesians 3:15)—these help to constitute the happiness of the redeemed. {GC 677.1}

May you, reader, remain true to the commandments of God, looking forward to that grand reunion with the Lord as the Saiph chimes echo our praises to the Creator, resounding with our joy and gratitude for His redemption from the curse of sin.

Ellen G. White. Early Writings, p. 233. – Thousands were led to embrace the truth preached by William Miller, and servants of God were raised up in the spirit and power of Elijah to proclaim the message. Like John, the forerunner of Jesus, those who preached this solemn message felt compelled to lay the ax at the root of the tree, and call upon men to bring forth fruits meet for repentance. Their testimony was calculated to arouse and powerfully affect the churches and manifest their real character. And as the solemn warning to flee from the wrath to come was sounded, many who were united with the churches received the healing message; they saw their backslidings, and with bitter tears of repentance and deep agony of soul, humbled themselves before God. And as the Spirit of God rested upon them, they helped to sound the cry, “Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come.”

Far more than we do, it is our privilege to understand these wonderful themes. We are to comprehend the deep things of God.

During the spring of 1845, Bates accepted the seventh-day Sabbath after reading a pamphlet by T. M. Preble. Bates soon became known as the “apostle of the Sabbath” and wrote several booklets on the topic. One of the first, published in 1846, was entitled The Seventh Day Sabbath, a Perpetual Sign. One of Bates’ most significant contributions was his ability to connect theologically the Sabbath with a unique understanding of the heavenly sanctuary. This apocalyptic understanding of theology would become known as the Great Controversy theme.

This was done seven times, as an expression of perfection. So Christ, the great antitype, Himself both high priest and victim, clothed with His own spotless robes of righteousness, after giving His life for the world, cast the virtue of His offering, a crimson current, in the direction of the Holy Place, reconciling man to God through the blood of the cross.—Manuscript 101, 1897, 11, 12.

The King James Version only mentions that the 144,000 have their Father’s name written in their foreheads, but the majority of manuscripts mention the 144,000 having both “his name and the name of his Father” written on their foreheads.

69.
Ellen G. White, Acts of the Apostles, p. 571 – 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.

May 25 is the anniversary of Jesus death on the cross in AD 31 as one of the basic studies of this ministry reveals. It is especially remarkable that the new moon that begins the first month of the grape harvest, which stands for the fulfillment of the number of the martyrs, falls onto this very special memorial day that the world ignores. Instead, the US citizens are celebrating the Memorial Day of their fallen troops. We will have to watch carefully how prophecy will fulfill at the beginning of the grape harvest.
