Gathering for Armageddon

 

In keeping with the times, where prophetically significant events pile up one on top of the other, this article is likewise packed with fulfillments—both heavenly and earthly! You will learn what the drying out of the Euphrates is, who the three frogs of the sixth plague are and the role they play in gathering the nations together for Armageddon. Furthermore, not only the two witnesses, but also two of Daniel’s timelines point to the anointing of the third temple. The final rapid movements[1] are definitely living up to their name in the sixth plague!

Since its discovery in mid-2017, the plague cycle of the Orion clock, whose throne lines show the third plague reflecting the sixth, has been indicating that the latter would begin exactly on April 4, 2019, with the throne lines highlighting April 4-7. This is a prophetically significant timeframe that reveals much about who the players of the sixth plague are and the events that lay the foundation for understanding the rest of the plague as the Bible describes it.

The plagues cycle showing the reflection between the 3rd and 6th plagues.

God’s clocks had previously pointed to the 70th anniversary of the founding of the UN and the 70th anniversary of the founding of the state of Israel—both to the very day—and incredibly, the sixth plague, April 4, 2019, was another 70th anniversary! Now, with the same uncanny precision, the clock points exactly to the 70th anniversary of the NATO military alliance! Not only that, but several issues that God has highlighted with His clocks in the past were key items influencing the discussion at the NATO anniversary meeting! For example, we wrote years ago in Trumpets with a Certain Sound that God was pointing to the Russian annexation of Crimea,[2] which has been an influential factor in Russian relations ever since, including at this NATO anniversary meeting.

Third plague conflict comes back into view at the sixth plague. If you read our article, Three Frogs for Peace,[3] you should know that we recognized that the events of the third plague should reflect those of the sixth, and now as the sixth plague begins, we see exactly that! In Bloody Waters, we wrote about the volatile situation between Russia and Ukraine in the Sea of Azov, which sprang into the headlines as soon as the third plague began, and threatened to erupt into something very big. Shortly afterward, however, that conflict seemed to fade into the background din of world events—until now, that is! Precisely at the point of reflection on the clock, NATO approved an Azov Sea “Package”, sparking a strongly-worded response from a Russian diplomat for the Crimea:

As for the passage of the Ukrainian ships through the Kerch Strait… no matter how much NATO beats its chest, the ships will pass through it only in accordance with Russian rules, and not anybody else’s. Let NATO launch even half of its fleet into the Black Sea.[4]

The clock’s reflection across the throne lines is clearly seen in the events of the day, as Russia and NATO are again facing confrontation over a country (formerly) on Europe’s side: Turkey!

The reflection is not limited to the Azov Sea, however. In the same article, we saw that the rivers and springs of the third plague were symbols representing migration patterns. In this article, you will discover that migration is a central theme in the fulfillment of the sixth plague. Let’s begin to unpack the symbols.

Drying the Euphrates

And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. (Revelation 16:12)

Here we find two primary symbols: the Euphrates and the kings of the east, but the plague is specifically poured out on the former. Always remember that prophecies use symbols, and if they are symbolic, then they cannot be correctly understood literally. Nevertheless, God chooses a given symbol to guide us to the true fulfillment through its significance. We already saw how the plague points to the NATO anniversary “celebration”, but that was in the US—nowhere near the Euphrates! How then can we draw a connection?

The location of the Euphrates provides us with a key to understand that connection. It is a middle-eastern river whose source is in Turkey, and it flows through Syria and Iraq before emptying into the Persian Gulf via Iran. Like most major rivers, it is a significant trade route and is therefore important in relation to economic conditions. Is this enough to point us in the right direction? Were there any economic issues that came to a head at the NATO anniversary meeting, in one of these countries along the Euphrates?

Remember what was noted in our previous publication entitled The Two Witnesses! Turkey’s economy is seriously ailing, to the point of tipping the votes out of Erdogan’s favor. This drying up of the economy of Turkey, where the Euphrates originates, happened exactly seven days before the sixth plague was poured out. But the sixth plague points directly to another drying out.

Ever since Turkey signed the contract to purchase the Russian S-400 air defense system, Turkey has been NATO’s problem child, and relations with the US have severely deteriorated, and the more time passes, the more strained the relationship becomes! At the anniversary meeting, US Vice President Mike Pence effectively said that Turkey had to choose between the S-400 and NATO, revealing a major crack in the fragile alliance. In response to Turkey’s insistence on purchasing the Russian system, the US cut off the delivery of F-35 stealth fighter jets that were to be delivered to Turkey, thus “drying out” the flowing military trade between the two nations. This was a major part of the NATO anniversary meeting discussions.

We can recognize this as the drying out of the Euphrates by considering how that decision would likely influence other nations near Turkey—like Russia. The Bible says that this enables “the way of the kings of the east” to be prepared. Now if we can understand how this could be fulfilled in consequence of the drying up of the supply of the military aircraft to Turkey, then we can be confident that we’re on the right track. It is important to note, however, that the verse simply speaks of an obstacle being removed to preparing the way for the “kings of the east”, but those kings do not actually come just yet.

There are at least two angles from which we can see potential fulfillment. First, we can see how the problems with Turkey as were brought to the forefront at the NATO anniversary meeting, show that NATO itself is in danger. Turkey has the second largest military in the alliance—second only to the US, who has already questioned the value of remaining a member. With Turkey on the verge of breaking away (having already done so in spirit), it signals great problems for NATO to fulfill its first mission to defend Europe from Russian aggression. Thus, these developments that break NATO are opening the way for Putin and his eastern allies like China—“kings of the east”—to make advances on Europe that they will not be strong enough to resist.

From a different perspective, one does not need a lot of imagination to understand how Turkey could prepare the way for “kings of the east” if it is remembered how throughout the migration crisis, that nation’s president has often threatened to “open the way” for people of the east to pass to Europe.[5] Being the gateway country for neighboring migrants to get to Europe, Turkey has hosted millions from its neighbors east of Europe: Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.

Migrant routes through Turkey from the east of Europe.

If Erdogan opened the way to Europe in retaliation—a punishment he has considered using before—the migrants from these (Islamic) nations would then also aid the “kings of the east” as representatives of their home nations. We described in the article The Day of the Demon how such a situation serves as a Trojan horse to take over countries. And others have explained at length how the extreme migrant situation the world faces today will even lead to large-scale war as pressures increase with sustained migrant flows,[6] which is where this is all quickly heading. The crisis has been ongoing for years, and now the sure result is about to be realized. The sheer numbers of dissatisfied migrants within a nation’s borders can stir up violence at the smallest provocation, like when migrants in Greece violently clashed with police recently,[7] sparked only by a false report that the border would open on April 5—during the throne lines. Make no mistake about it, the migrant crisis is a major aspect of the war of Armageddon. These are the “weapons of mass migration” that are being used in the final war against God to destroy Christianity under the colorful banner of Tolerance!

Unclean Spirits Like Frogs

And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. (Revelation 16:13)

In the article, Three Frogs for Peace, we saw how in the Bible, frogs are exclusively associated with the plague of Egypt wherever else they are mentioned. We saw how the Egyptians connected frogs with fertility and multiplication and sought the protection of their frog deity Heqet in childbirth. But there are further details given in the scriptures that help us even more to identify why frogs are used in this symbolism. In the second plague of Egypt, God warned Pharaoh through Moses:

And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy borders with frogs: (Exodus 8:2)

From the beginning, the plague of frogs was associated with the borders. Does this suggest anything to you? What widespread plague affects the borders of nations today? There is only one clear answer: the onslaught of migrants, whether legal or illegal, who multiply at the borders like fertile frogs. Notice how Masses of frogs set to overwhelm the territory. the description continues:

And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall go up and come into thine house, and into thy bedchamber, and upon thy bed, and into the house of thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thine ovens, and into thy kneadingtroughs: (Exodus 8:3)

The Bible specifically mentions where the frogs went, and does that compare with the migrants? Absolutely! They came into the houses of welcoming Europeans, into their bedrooms, sleeping on their beds, and entered their guest houses. And on the darker side, in the streets, they came “upon” the people in the form of violent crime and rape. Even the churches, where the bread—the Word of God—is prepared, are corrupted with their influence (and replaced with mosques). From what the Bible associates with frogs, it should be clear that the frogs of the sixth plague are directly connected with the migrant crisis, which continues to plague the nations today.

However, it should be noted that the sixth plague speaks not so much of the frogs themselves, but of unclean spirits “like frogs”! Thus, it must refer to a spirit, or attitude favorable toward migrants. In order to identify it more clearly, we need to understand where the spirits are coming from.

The Mouths of the Defiled

The first thing we have to recognize is that the frog-like spirits come out of mouths. Thus, it has to do with something spoken or decreed. Can you tell what three “mouths” or mouthpieces have said something favorable toward migrants since April 4, who speak for the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet? Of course, that means we must identify those entities before we can continue. Let’s start with the last one first.

The false prophet has classically been understood by knowledgeable students of prophecy to represent apostate Protestantism. This comes from the understanding of the two-horned beast of Revelation 13 that looks like a lamb but speaks like a dragon. That beast characterizes the United States, which was founded on the principles of Republicanism and Protestantism, the two horns from which it derived its power. That it speaks like a dragon shows the apostasy into which it has devolved.

Today, we see clearly how the Protestant/Evangelical community has “their man” in the White House, and they have an open door of communication (and influence) with him. Trump is indeed the mouthpiece for the false prophet of pope-adoring apostate “Protestantism”. Thus, we direct our attention now to any important statements or decisions he made as the sixth plague began. It would surely be a long-shot to find closed-border Trump making a statement favorable to migrants, right!? Didn’t he just threaten to completely shut down the border with Mexico, which would have been effective as early as the weekend of April 6-7?

Nevertheless, on the opening day of the sixth plague, before the weekend, he fulfilled his part of the prophecy with a shock for the world: he would give Mexico a generous one-year delay on border control for them to get their act together with regard to migrants and drugs coming into the US.[8]

“We’re going to give them a one year warning, and if the drugs don’t stop, or largely stop, we’re going to put tariffs on Mexico and products, in particular cars,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Thursday. “And if that doesn’t work, we’re going to close the border.”[9]

In essence, he postponed the border closure indefinitely, because even after the year, he will try the tariffs for an unspecified time, and only if that doesn’t work, he says, will he implement the border closure. But, of course, it probably would work, so then there would be no border closure at all. What does that mean for the migrants at the border? Aren’t their hopes swelling once again, that now is their golden opportunity to make the crossing? This was indeed a frog-like spirit that came out of the mouthpiece for the false prophet!

Next, let’s consider the beast. There are a few different beasts described in the Revelation, but the first and foremost among them is the first beast described in Revelation 13, a chapter that also speaks of the two other players of the sixth plague: the dragon and the aforementioned lamblike beast, which is identified with the false prophet. It is a good idea, therefore, to also consider this first beast for a sixth-plague role. Arising from the sea of Europe, this beast is formed with elements of the fallen world empires of former generations, as described in Daniel. It is intimately associated with the papacy, but a beast in prophetic language is a political entity, and the papacy no longer has political territory—or does it!?

No, it isn’t the 110-acre Vatican City where the pope resides that is important. There are no earth-shaking political decisions coming from Vatican City! But the Treaties of Rome that laid the foundations of the EU were signed in 1957 under the auspices of the Vatican, as the president of the European Commission succinctly acknowledged at its 60th anniversary:

…the Popes of the Catholic Church have accompanied the men and women who worked to construct Europe with their encouragement, their warnings and their spiritual guidance. This has been true since the very foundation of the European Union was laid with the blessing given by Pope Pius XII to the leaders of our six founding Member States gathering in Rome for the signature of the Treaties in 1957.[10]

Indeed, the EU is the papacy’s political workhorse (or beast), sufficiently distanced to conceal its true relationship. So, we should consider: has the EU said anything in the favor of immigrants in these days?

The president of the European Council, Donald Tusk, made a suggestion—again exactly on April 4, 2019—that Brexit could be delayed a full year. It may seem at first blush to be unrelated to migration, but in fact, it would be a boon to many seeking to migrate to the UK from the EU, since it would be one more year to freely do so, while the UK still has open borders under EU rules!

Recall that the 2016 Brexit referendum was decided primarily on the handling of immigration, with the slogan “Take back control” signifying the fact that the British people didn’t want EU policies to overrule their own power of decision anymore, especially with respect to immigration.[11] They were taking action on widespread concern in order to regain control over the increasing numbers of immigrants from the poorer EU nations who could relocate freely on account of the “Freedom of Movement Act”.[12]

So, Donald Trump spoke for the false prophet on the same day that Donald Tusk spoke for the beast, both extending an offer of “peace” to different groups of migrants. Was there a third mouthpiece speaking on behalf of the dragon, perhaps even on the same day, that also spoke words of “peace” to another class of migrants?

Before we jump to conclusions, let’s consider it thoughtfully. The dragon, of course, represents Satan, as the Bible clearly states.[13] Satan, however, has not revealed his true form on the earth, but walks in the flesh of a man. Is that man, Pope Francis, the mouthpiece for Satan? No! He is Satan himself, as we explained years ago in our series entitled Francis Romanus, beginning with Satan Unmasked.

So, what organization could serve as the pope/dragon’s mouthpiece? How about the organization that he addressed in a symbolic gesture on the Day of Atonement in 2015? The United Nations is the largest intergovernmental organization, comprised of all established sovereign states of the world,[14] except the Vatican, or “Holy See”, which is not a member itself, but a permanent “observer” or better said overseer! Of course, the UN is the umbrella organization under which all nations of the world are represented, and over which the pope clandestinely presides.

The UN's Antonio Guterres with an unclean spirit like a frog. Now that we have identified the organization, what came from its mouthpiece regarding migrants? Once again, on the very day of the beginning of the sixth plague, Antonio Guterres, the UN Secretary-General, visited a refugee camp in Libya and made some remarks afterward at a press conference, concluding with the following:

My appeal is for the international community to understand the need for international refugee law to be fully respected, and the need to address the migration problem in a way that is compatible with the defence of the interests of the State but also the human rights of the migrants.[15]

Of course, the “international refugee law” he refers to is the “Global Compact for Migration”, a.k.a. the “pact with the devil” as French party leader Marine La Pen accurately referred to it, perhaps unwittingly! This pact has drawn strong opposition from several nations due to its demands for nations to honor controversial requirements relating to migrants.

How amazing is it that these three entities fitting the biblical description would all—on the very same day as the Orion clock prophesied—speak and/or act in favor of migrants!? If it were just the UN, it might not be so phenomenal, but for Trump to suddenly reverse his stated intent and uncharacteristically extend a gracious peaceful gesture to the migrants (because it clearly opens the way for many more migrants to enter in the meantime), it suggests that there must have been something highly motivating to twist his arm!

Trump likes to present himself as though he is at the top without anyone over him, but he knows that he cannot on all points act independently of his boss—Pope Francis, as pointed out in Three Frogs for Peace. Did the pope recently express dissatisfaction with Trump’s border policy? Absolutely! Just as he was returning from his trip to Morocco where he “championed the cause of migrants”, he gave Trump a stern warning:

Pope Francis, putting President Trump on notice, warned on Sunday [March 31] that those who close borders “will become prisoners of the walls that they build.”[16]

Trump finally got the memo and changed his tone at his very next address! While most chalk it up to Trump’s impulsive and inconsistent ways, the pope laughs up his sleeve because the masses are blind to his power over the whole world.

Do you understand now, why in the Great and Marvelous Sign of the Seven Last Plagues (video), the sixth plague angel is Sagittarius and his vial is Saturn? In God Is Time, we explained how Sagittarius can represent apostate Protestantism with its fallen crown at its feet as well as the old Roman governmental system in its present, mottled form—and both interpretations clearly fit in different ways! His plague is poured out from the vial of Saturn, representing Satan. The Satan-pope is behind the three unclean spirits: he gives Trump orders, the EU is his baby, and in the shadows he rules over the UN. In unison, they call for policies of peace and security for migrants, but the Bible indicates that when “they” make this call, then sudden destruction will come upon them, which God’s clock tells us will come on or soon after May 6, 2019.

“They”—the dragon (in Pope Francis; Ophiuchus), the beast he rides (Scorpius), and the false prophet (Sagittarius) are all depicted at the same end of the galactic equator, where Saturn (representing Satan) is lingering, trying to hold his grip on power.

Satan is losing his grip on power.

Nevertheless, they shall not escape the destruction that is coming like the woes of childbirth.

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

Could there be yet another reason why the spirits are described as unclean? Stepping aside from direct arguments for or against the welcoming of migrants, we can see how this issue is being used for a greater purpose by the world powers (under the pope). They have an agenda for a unified one-world government, and the migration issue in any form serves that overarching goal. Thus, they are unholy spirits especially because they come from an unholy source, as Jesus taught on an individual level:

But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. (Matthew 15:18)

A dark and lost planet earth from God's view. Imagine the Lord looking down at the earth. He sees millions, even billions of people in complete spiritual darkness and confusion. Even Christians who take His name are made unclean by the apostasy of the churches they cling to and the false doctrines they believe. Thus, whether Muslim, Catholic, or anything in between, the world is altogether unclean.

The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. (Psalms 14:2-3)

Do you seek God? Do you yearn for truth as though your life depended on it? (It does, you know!) Are you willing to surrender your culture and traditions, family and friends for Jesus and be made clean? If so, then welcome! You may learn about His ways from the two witnesses and follow Him in these last moments... as long as there is time to learn, at least!

And after these things he went forth, and saw a publican, named Levi, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he said unto him, Follow me. And he left all, rose up, and followed him. (Luke 5:27-28)

Gathering for Armageddon

The sixth plague text continues with more details of the three unclean spirits:

For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. (Revelation 16:14)

Now the Bible tells us something about the coming war, and how it is fought. Having identified the unclean spirits as gestures of peace and security for migrants to the US, the UK, Europe, and ultimately the world, we can understand more about how the migrants will be used in the imminent sudden destruction the Bible speaks of. Of course, only Time will reveal the complete picture, but we can still draw some reasonable conclusions. First of all, the Bible makes it clear that these overtures of peace toward the migrants are prompted by devils, taking us behind the scenes to see the spiritual warfare which the world events must be understood in relation to.

Satan, having been cast out of heaven, has first-hand experience with “borders” that prevent his freedom of movement throughout the universe, so it makes sense that he has a policy of unrestricted migration. But his ultimate aim is for worship and power:

For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. (Isaiah 14:13-14)

To the fullest extent possible on earth, he has prepared the world to accept him as its supreme leader, and it is to this end that these devils assist him. The phrase, “working miracles” may also be translated “make signs” and may simply refer to the way in which the spirits stir up and provoke the migrant issue to make it a big, inescapable problem or great wonder, like Trump did in declaring a national emergency over the border status, for example, using an exception to the rule to exercise executive power that is not normally used in that way.

Next, the Bible builds upon the “kings of the east” in the first verse, adding to them two more specific groups of kings: “the kings of the earth and of the whole world”. In literal language, the distinction is lost, but when we understand it symbolically as it ought to be, we see a geographical distinction similar to what we saw between the mouthpieces for the false prophet, the beast, and the dragon. In keeping with established interpretation, the kings of the earth must be from nations in the Americas, while those of “the whole world” would refer to the rest of the (old) world that aren’t counted with the “kings of the east” already mentioned earlier.

Note that when a king goes out to battle, he does not go alone, but with his army! Thus, these kings do not merely represent leaders, but the whole “army” that goes with them (including the migrants). The picture that emerges is one where these spirits rally the “kings” throughout the world together around a common point of conflict: migrants. Again, at this point, it is too early to say for sure how it will play out exactly, but based on how the beginning of the sixth plague fulfilled clearly around the migration theme, the migrant issue is certainly playing a major role as the angry nations gather together in these weeks before Armageddon.

The Lord knows the severity of that war and that no flesh would survive it, so He must cut the time short in righteousness and deliver His Philadelphia—who sought not to save their lives, but even symbolically laid their crown of eternal life at Jesus’ feet. The hour from which Philadelphia is spared is at once both the fifteen days (a prophetic hour), as we described in The Hour of Philadelphia, and the seven lean years[17] (an Orion hour) for the message of heaven that was rejected.

After 1000 years of a vacant planet, when the devil and his hosts “reign” over the dead bones scattered on the earth, the second resurrection brings the hosts of the wicked back to life, and they soon continue the battle of Armageddon to attempt a united attack against the Holy City, which will have descended at that time. (The details of that story and its timing are described by Brother John in the book of the second witness: The Mystery of the Holy City.) But the Holy City has high walls and gates, and none of the wicked are granted entry. “Freedom of movement” into this city is only for those who had decided at the right time to separate themselves from the world and follow the Lord and His law.

The time of entry into that city is less than three weeks away as of this publication. Are you ready? Have you ordered your life according to God’s law, receiving the righteousness of Christ with repentance to cover your failures, so you may enter freely? Or have you clung to your traditions and rejected the Lord because you don’t believe He would reveal the secret of the time of His coming (or for any other reason)? At this late hour, after two spurned invitations to the guests of His wedding feast, the Lord in desperation sends His servants one more time to compel you with extreme urgency to come in. Will you yet resist Him? The parable ends without any indication as to whether this third attempt was actually successful; that outcome depends on your response.

And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. (Luke 14:23)[18]

In perfect time with the clock, Jesus’ voice is heard in the sixth plague with this stern warning:

Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. (Revelation 16:15-16)

God has given due warning. He has bidden His servants to sound the alarm and revealed all mysteries to them. Yet so very few know when to expect Him! Oh, how His heart must ache as He sees the multitudes of the lost:

Let the heathen [all the world—including all types of “Christians”] be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. (Joel 3:12-14)

If you wait until Armageddon, you will contribute to the overflowing wine vats as God squeezes out the wine of His wrath.

The Pope and the Third Temple

The throne lines of the sixth plague are a special time, especially because within them, various timelines reach their end. In our article about the two witnesses, we saw how the 1260 days that they prophesied about concluded on April 6, 2019. That was indeed an important time for the two witnesses, but it has even more significance than that! Since 2017, we have understood that two other timelines from Daniel would end on the same day.

And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. (Daniel 12:11)

We have already discussed the details of this prophecy in former articles, but now that the time has come to an end, it is important to understand what it means in the context of the events that have transpired. The beginning is anchored at the time when the pope showed that he was ruler over the world, as he addressed his subordinates at the UN General Assembly on September 25, 2015. The abomination that maketh desolate was then set up. Counting exactly 1290 days later by Jewish inclusive counting reaches to April 6, 2019! Thus, something must have happened on that date that corresponds to the prophecy.

Satan addressing his henchmen at the UN. At the beginning, the pope sealed the setting-up of the abomination, taking his position symbolically as Lord of the world. He even has his own temple erected where God originally said His name would be forever (the Al-Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount in Israel[19]). Now in the end, he is standing at the pinnacle of the temple by having the whole world under his submission through his Migration Pact.

Do you see how Pope Francis is at the top, pulling the strings of even rebels like Trump, proclaiming peace and security to the world through tolerance and free migration? Satan has re-established Babylon under him, and the only thing left for him to do is eradicate those who don’t worship him by obeying his diabolical agenda.

There is another important prophecy in Daniel that also has to do with the temple:

Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate [desolator]. (Daniel 9:24,27)

Very exciting and important information about these verses will be presented in a forthcoming article from Brother John entitled The Sign of the Son of Man, but what is important here is to see in all the frogs and other symbols of the sixth plague how Pope Francis—the abomination of desolation, and the desolator—was given until the end of these 70 weeks to gain total power over the world, as if he were God, in preparation to fight against Jesus Christ and His people in the battle of Armageddon at the start of the seventh plague.

Our previous study of this 70-week timeframe was entitled 70 Weeks of Trouble—the “trouble” being a reference to the trouble caused by President Trump by making his Jerusalem declaration. From the beginning, Trump has been the pope’s “troublemaker,” especially on matters of the border, but now at the end of the time, he finally fell in line, thus ending the “70 weeks of trouble.” Who else could resist the pope if not even the United States can? This shows that the pope has the leaders of the world under complete submission, and through them he is now rallying his troops.

Warn! Wake up the people!

Come out of her, my people… For her sins have reached unto heaven [i.e. the top, the pinnacle]… (from Revelation 18:4-5)

The world offers its peace and safety, but sudden destruction is coming quickly, as the omen of Notre Dame’s fire indicates. Pay attention to our channel and our news feeds to understand what this and other signs mean!

The major timelines have ended; time is up! Jesus is coming!

Addendum

In the short time since the publication of this article, the news has suddenly exploded with another sixth-plague event that fills in some important information that was not available before now. On April 22, 2019, Trump issued a statement saying that nations who have not stopped purchasing oil from Iran will be sanctioned beginning May 2. This was expected (though not welcome) by some US allies like Japan, who still regard Iran as an important source for oil, although it is working toward eliminating its purchase of Iranian oil.

However, three nations in particular have blasted the US decision: Iran’s provocative response was predictable, threatening to close the strait of Hormuz, through which about one third of the world’s sea-faring oil passes, if they are blocked from exporting through it. China has defended its energy trade with Iran and is not expected to back down on its purchases, despite the sanctions. A third nation, which plays a key role in the sixth plague prophecy, has been very pointed against the White House decision: Turkey.

Mevlüt Çavusoglu
Minister of Foreign Affairs of Republic of Turkey

The #US decision to end sanctions waivers on #Iran oil imports will not serve regional peace and stability, yet will harm Iranian people. #Turkey rejects unilateral sanctions and impositions on how to conduct relations with neighbors. @StateDept @SecPompeo

Turkey was talking with the US in a bid to avoid this situation, making the case that as neighbor to Iran, it could not be expected to eliminate trade with the nation, but now that Trump is standing his ground, Turkey is revealing its true allegiances, which are with its neighbors and not with the US! Their anger and resentment against the Trump administration for this additional blow to their economy cannot be hidden anymore!

Is it becoming clear now who the kings of the east are, and how the US sanctions are drying out the Euphrates (Turkey’s trade with the US), preparing the way for these kings to unite in opposition to the US? Can the NATO alliance really be trusted with Turkey showing stronger allegiance to NATO enemies?

Yet perhaps the most significant effect of this move is what it means in relation to the Iran Nuclear Deal. This is the deal that prophecies pointed to, that served to diminish concerns over Iran’s provocation of World War III by restraining their ability to act on their unbridled animosity against Israel. Many regard Trump’s move as an attempt to force Iran out of the nuclear deal as soon as possible. While the US may have other reasons for doing this, the effect is the same: when the nuclear deal collapses, the threat and fear of Iran instigating World War III will rise dramatically!

Thus, we see how Trump is working effectively to end the delay imposed by the Iran deal since the preparatory trumpet cycle in 2015, just as we wrote in Fire from Heaven.[20] There is little left preventing the kings of the east from acting on their animosity toward the US, and Armageddon is closer than it may appear!

May 15/16, 2019: The Jubilee begins for the saints at the end of that day, and the Seven Lean Years for the unrepentant.

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. (Revelation 18:6)

May 16/17, 2019: The 7th trumpet has sounded. The mark of the beast has now become universal through the legalization of same-sex marriage also on the Asian continent! Jesus began His reign over the earthly kingdoms at the end of the day of judgment in heaven and has now stood up, according to Daniel 12:1, to deliver His people from this doomed planet before the night comes.

“The substitution of the laws of men for the law of God, the exaltation, by merely human authority, of Sunday in place of the Bible Sabbath [the exaltation of the same-sex marriage in place of the biblical marriage], is the last act in the drama. When this substitution becomes universal, God will reveal Himself. He will arise in His majesty to shake terribly the earth. He will come out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the world for their iniquity, and the earth shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.” {ChS 50.2}
