The Stench of the First Plague

 

Our eyes have been opened from the light presented in the first two parts of the series, and we have seen how the prophecies of the fifth and sixth trumpet of Revelation point to the trade war between the US and other countries—especially China—that has been in the headlines for months. We saw how the enigmatic prophecy of Revelation 13, which has challenged the wisdom of many, is also connected to the trade war and the hidden agenda of the top world leaders, and how they are working together to accomplish a unified purpose in leading the world to receive the mark of the beast.

That mark is perhaps one of the most dreaded features of end-time prophecy, which many have sought hard to understand. Unfortunately, most do not discern the symbolic references in the prophecy and wait for laws requiring a tattoo or an RFID chip that is put in the hand or in the forehead. It is sad that such a vitally important issue for this time is so poorly understood. Yet living as we do in the end times, it is presently the key issue that is being pushed throughout the world, and God has given clear understanding of what the mark of the beast really is.

We hope you follow these links to read about it, and for more, download or stream our 30-minute video about it, because then you can really understand how the pieces of the puzzle fit together, as we have described. God has warned His people repeatedly about receiving the mark of the beast or uniting with those who worship his image, but if it isn’t clear what it is, those warnings will not have their intended effect.

The mysteries of the last days, including the nature of the mark of the beast, are solved through the knowledge of Time. Many realize that we are in the end times, generally, but they do not understand just how near the end we really are—in a measurable sense. To supply this deficiency, God gave the Orion message. Founded on the biblical understanding of Orion as God’s heavenly clock, He gives solid assurances regarding the specific and precise time in which we live, according to the prophetic end-time outline in the Revelation. The trumpet cycle has already given its clear testimony, especially in the fifth and sixth trumpets, and now the plagues cycle is following in suit to provide God’s searching children all the evidence that their faith needs to grow, so that they can fulfill their high calling.

In this part, we conclude our series on the stench of the first plague by showing how the Scriptures themselves teach us how to understand biblical symbols like the mark of the beast and the Great Sign of the pure woman. There was much hype surrounding that sign of September 23, 2017, but because it wasn’t understood, it just fizzled out instead of igniting a firestorm of activity as it warned the world of the time of plagues in which we now live!

If the traditional belief of literal ulcers and malodorous sores is too ingrained in your mind, that you doubt that we could already be living in the time of plagues, then you will especially benefit from seeing the detailed heavenly illustrations that give the specific time when the verses describing the scene of the plagues fulfill. The vial is now being poured out on the earth, affecting those who have the mark of the beast. The need to separate from the cursed will be made plain; God asks for faith that leads to action, but He also gives evidence with a loud voice from heaven:

And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image. (Revelation 16:1-2)

Spiritual Things are Spiritually Discerned

Before we go any further, however, there is an important principle that, although used frequently, needs to be made explicit. Too often we fail to recognize the spiritual meaning of God’s words. In order to recognize and avoid common pitfalls of interpretation, it is necessary to look beyond the superficial meaning of the text. Consider what God said through the prophet Isaiah:

For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. (Isaiah 55:10-11)

Do you realize what this means? God’s word cannot return to Him void, i.e., it will be fulfilled one way or another, but it cannot be empty and meaningless. God cannot lie![1] When He gives a word of prophecy, many expect it to fulfill literally, but God speaks in symbols, which have meaning according to the experience of His people throughout history. For example, after the innocence that clothed the first humans was lost through their sin, they could see how being clothed with animal skins became a symbol for the restoration of their own lost innocence through the death of a Substitute. Thus, pure white clothing represents that pure righteousness of Christ, which the saints wear by faith.

This is the hope that Christ gives to those in all generations—including those who have lost their own sweet innocence to vile abusers, like the victims of sex abuse in the Catholic Church, for example. Jesus has the power to restore that stolen innocence! Yet, if one fails to recognize the spiritual meaning of “white clothes,” then one might mistakenly think those who are literally dressed in white clothing are the righteous people!

Those arrayed in white clothes?

And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. (Revelation 7:13-14)

And need we mention the futility of whitening clothes in literal blood? Jesus’ disciples struggled with the same problem of recognizing when He spoke in symbolic language:

How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees? Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. (Matthew 16:11-12)

Is your bread leavened with the false doctrines that are popular among Christians today? How much error is spread by the misunderstanding of this one principle of symbolic interpretation!? If you want to find the depth of meaning that God has enriched His prophetic words with, you must understand that when a symbol is used, especially in prophecy, the one thing it most certainly does not mean is what it literally says! Leaven might symbolize error in doctrine, sinfulness in the flesh, or something else, but certainly not yeast in bread, because then it wouldn’t be a symbol!

With this principle in mind, when we read the news of the bleeding cancer in the church and the stench of the investigation, or the deep, infected wounds that plague the church, we should be equipped to understand how the first plague applies to the situation, being symbolized in the Bible as a “noisome and grievous sore.”

Literal Prophecies Can Become Symbolic

There is a scenario in which even literal prophecies become symbolic, due to an important event or change. This can happen even with the prophecies of modern times! When a prophet speaks the Word of God and the people fail to abide by the conditions of the prophecy, then the prophecy is surely going to have a spiritual rather than literal fulfillment! Listen to what God said to Solomon in a dream:

And if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, in integrity of heart, and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my statutes and my judgments: Then I will establish the throne of thy kingdom upon Israel for ever, as I promised to David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man upon the throne of Israel. But if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your children, and will not keep my commandments and my statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods, and worship them: Then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this house, which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of my sight; and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people: (1 Kings 9:4-7)

A church that ignores God’s warnings and continues in rebellion, yet expects Him to fulfill His promises to them as His special people, will be sorely disillusioned. Israel became a symbol (or “byword”) because of their continued rebellion. Today, standing in the place where God promised to put His name forever[2] is the Al-Aqsa Mosque and no temple to Jehovah. His name is not there because literal Israel became a symbol for spiritual Israel!

And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. (Galatians 3:29)[3]

The promises and prophecies made concerning Israel were conferred on all those who believed in Jesus, whether Jew or Gentile. Those Jews who rejected Him, continued to cling to the old promises that God had made to them, but because they failed to meet the conditions, the promises had to be fulfilled to another people—a spiritual Israel who did meet the conditions through Christ![4] Since that time, literal Israel has been a partaker in a different line of prophecy—not that of God’s chosen ones to bear His covenant, but of those who lost favor with God. The curses and not the blessings are fulfilled in Israel. This is contrary to the sentiments of those who are caught up in the movement of Zionism. For example, we have seen how Trump’s decree regarding the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital was a prophetic event, but it marked the beginning of 70 weeks of trouble for literal Israel—not a blessing but a curse. Israel may still serve as a timepiece, but we must look elsewhere to see how the promised blessings fulfill toward God’s people today!

Tracking the Virgin through Time

Trying to find spiritual Israel can be difficult. We know that Christianity superseded Judaism, but today many Christians again stop short of meeting the conditions of the covenant—the requirements for God’s blessings, originally promised to Israel, to be fulfilled in themselves. In another article, you will learn about the Two Witnesses and how they give their faithful testimony regarding where that small company is that comprises spiritual Israel. Many people assume they already belong to spiritual Israel, but in fact are still far behind in meeting the requirements of the covenant. Those who have been chosen to carry His covenant to the end of the world must be faithful and remain faithful, like the executor of an estate. It is always the case, and no less for them, that the promises are conditional upon faithfulness. God must have a faithful people to bear testimony to the world regarding His covenant!

This is a very important topic, because if He does not have a faithful people, then the covenant cannot be delivered, and the cause of salvation is jeopardized! It is part of the plan, that God works through His people. It is the theme of a forthcoming article to see how the prophecies unveil the identity of the current holders of God’s covenant. However, we should first understand how the covenant has changed hands in the past. Today, we have fresh insight from the heavens to make it clear exactly who they are who follow the Lamb wherever He goes!

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. (Revelation 14:4)

God’s pure (or virgin) church is represented on the heavenly canvas by the constellation Virgo, which is unfortunately portrayed as a slutty woman more often than not. Considering that the same constellation also represents the whore of Babylon in other contexts,[5] such a depiction is not always wrong, however. In any case, it is the constellation lines themselves (blue in the image below) which define the three distinct sections of the woman (yellow) that were mentioned in Part 1. Those three sections are also referenced in the great sign of Revelation 12 that fulfilled on September 23, 2017, plus one more:

And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, [the whole body, especially the center section] and the moon under her feet, [the lower section] and upon her head [the upper section] a crown of twelve stars [a fourth section: Leo with its visiting stars]: (Revelation 12:1)

The three parts of the woman, plus her crown.

Without repeating all the details that we’ve explained long ago, recognize that there are four features in this prophecy that are clearly identified when we look at the heavenly sign, just as we identified four key features of the prophecy back in 2012! Together, they represent God’s people—His church—and their light throughout time.

A gift of light. The additional fourth section illustrates how the correct interpretation of a particular prophecy can change with time, depending on whether that generation is faithful or not. A crown would not normally be considered a separate section from the head and would not have needed to be understood as a separate section if three sections had been enough to represent God’s people till the end of time. However, as the voice of God from heaven distinguishes God’s people today from previous generations, so also the heavens show us that a fourth section—the crown of the woman—represents the last generation of God’s people, who have accepted all the light He has given throughout time. The faithful remnant coming out of each epoch of sacred history always received a wealth of new light, and followed another step toward the Father (represented by Leo), while the unfaithful stayed back, not having a love for the new light.

The three parts of the woman, in pieces. First, God’s faithful people among the Jews until Christ are represented by the lower section of the woman. We just saw, however, that Israel lost its place in prophecy by rejecting Jesus at His first advent. As a people, they did not follow Him when He came to the earth the first time; instead, they killed him. To this day, Jews by-and-large stay with the foundation and have not advanced in faith to accept Christ. Only a small remnant—those few disciples who were faithful at the time of His Advent—could continue to carry the light of His salvation to the world, yet the prophecies continued to be fulfilled through them!

At His ascension, Jesus entered and remained in the heavenly sanctuary,[6] where He ministered[7] for centuries while the church on earth grew. The church fell into apostasy, but God sent reformers with light from the Bible to bring them back to the truth. The faithful Christians who lived up to all the light they received are represented by the middle section of the woman. However, the denominations that resulted from the great Protestant Reformation did not make a 100% complete return from their apostasy! To this day, they remain in a stagnant swamp of doctrinal chaos because after each reformer died, the people stopped advancing with the truth, but formed a new denomination.

When Jesus finally approached the Ancient of Days[8] to begin the great judgment day,[9] the people whom He had entrusted with His truth of salvation did not go forward with Him by faith. Very few at the end of that epoch[10] recognized Jesus’ movement in the heavenly sanctuary and followed Him by faith.[11] Nevertheless, as that small remnant studied earnestly, with a simplicity of faith like what the early church demonstrated, they saw how the prophecies were fulfilling in their small company of churchless Second Advent believers.

The remnant eventually grew and were gifted with many precious truths and an understanding of prophecy far above the Christian churches they came out of, like the head that rises above the body. The faithful among them in their generations are represented by the upper section of the woman. The sad story continues, however, because in the present generation, they still failed to recognize His voice speaking from His sanctuary in Orion to prepare them[12] before His return to deliver His pure “virgin” people. With sin in their heart and proud of their knowledge, they persisted in their rebellion like their predecessors and lost their exalted place in the prophecies.[13] Again, very few heard Jesus’ voice and followed Him as He left the Most Holy Place and ended His intercession. Nevertheless, the prophecies have still been fulfilling through those few—and that as never before!

The last symbol in the heavenly sign is the woman’s crown. Since Jesus, our High Priest, finished His intercessory service and changed His garments, the constellation that represents Him in the heavens is no longer Orion, but Leo.[14] In a similar way, His people, having journeyed from the foundation of Judaism with the Light of Christianity to the understanding of His Second Advent, finally lifted their eyes to the heavens, where they followed Him to Leo.

The woman and her crown.

Who then follows the Lamb wherever He goes? Is it the Jews, who refuse to study the Old Testament book that would lead them to Him? Is it those Christians who stopped short of the Holiest?[15] Is it Adventists who stopped their ears from hearing His call?[16] We can answer an emphatic “No!” because we see God’s Word written in the heavens. Only High Sabbath Adventists have accepted all the light that God has given from the beginning until now. In another publication, we will show how astonishingly specific the heavenly signs point to this small remnant of the remnant of the remnant[17] who follow Jesus and receive the crown of victory.

A Prophetic Reflection

We cannot deny the fact that our spiritual roots follow the sequence of the history of the woman of Revelation 12, and we cannot deny that we came from the Seventh-day Adventist Church,[18] but we want to make some things clear for those who either don’t know much about Adventism or who know so much that it hurts them.

Each time, the responsibility of being the holders of God’s covenant was transferred from one group to another through a small remnant who showed faith and followed Jesus’ leading against the tide of popular thinking. They questioned the familiar traditional beliefs of those around them—including their family[19]—and sought a higher understanding.

The Lion reflected as a Lamb. Of the four groups that make up the history of God’s people, two existed in a similar time, prophetically speaking. The Jews lived as God’s people before the destruction of Jerusalem, which was a type for the end of the world. They should have welcomed the Savior before it was too late for them. Compare them to the Seventh-day Adventist Church, which has always identified itself as the end-time church. As the Jews should have welcomed Jesus as the Savior, the Adventists should have welcomed Him as King—by accepting the messengers that came to the church on His behalf throughout the years, especially the one living today. But since they didn’t, it devolves upon you to take their place before the destruction of the apostate religions of the world in the seventh plague—which is only a few months away. It is in your hands to lighten the earth with the glory of God in the Latter Rain. That rain has already fallen, as can be seen in the 3000+ pages that have been necessary to write it, but the glory has yet to fully lighten the earth. Will you let God fulfill His word[20] through you?

For rejecting the messengers that were sent to it, the guilt of the church is great—proportional to the greatness of the light that they could have had, which is far more than was ever offered to another people! In Adventist history, there is no greater tragedy spoken of than that of the rejection of the fourth angel’s message in 1888. Until then, the church was headed in the right direction, but pride crept in among the leaders and they steered the church the wrong way. That message of righteousness by faith was only the beginning of what would culminate in the Orion message of our day. It could have been received in full from the beginning, but since it was rejected it took many long years before the rest was given, beginning in 2010.

Had the church leaders in 1888 humbled themselves to receive the messengers of truth, they would have seen Jesus return in 1890—that tremendously significant 70th jubilee since the jubilee cycle began at Israel’s entrance into the Promised Land! That jubilee was so significant that God made provisions for the church to go back in time to that same jubilee before Jesus returns.[21]

At that time, one theme of national prominence that deeply concerned Seventh-day Adventists was Sunday legislation. When you consider some remarks by A.T. Jones—one of the rejected messengers whom God had sent to His people—you can begin to grasp how important this subject was to the public. He spoke about it in front of a congressional subcommittee in 1889, helping to defeat the bill:[22]

Whence came Sunday Legislation?

What is its origin? What is its character?

What does it mean to the people of the States, of the United States, and of the world?

These questions are pre-eminently pertinent everywhere in the United States today; for in the States and in the Nation, Sunday legislation is universally demanded; before Congress and State legislatures Sunday legislation is constantly urged. {SLOC 3.1-3.4}

His remarks reveal that the religious and political conditions of that time were ripe for the fulfillment of end-time prophecies involving Sunday legislation. Many Sabbath-keeping members had been arrested and imprisoned in the US in 1889 for not recognizing Sunday as sacred. However, when God’s people rejected Him in the person of His messengers, He could not fulfill His promises to them, so the perfect circumstances for the fulfillment of prophecy ebbed away. Notice how Adventist historians apologetically describe the time afterward:

Agitation for Sunday legislation gradually waned, but in succeeding years Ellen White[23] kept the issues of the final conflict before church leaders. Times might have changed, so far as actual persecution for Sabbath observance was concerned, but the issues and the principles involved remained the same. Since Ellen White’s death further changes have taken place, but we believe that the same principles and the same issues will be revived in the coming conflict, present appearances to the contrary notwithstanding. {3SM 381.3}

The church’s current president, Ted Wilson has received a lot of backlash for saying there is no Sunday law in the pipeline, because in the Adventist mind, such a statement denies that we are living in the end-times. But on that point, he actually spoke the truth—and the evidence bears it out. One would not describe today’s political climate by saying “Sunday legislation is universally demanded” or “constantly urged.” It truly is not in the pipeline anymore… but that doesn’t mean that the prophecies have failed! God had a backup plan to fulfill His word.

In order to understand what happened, we need to understand how to interpret the mark of the beast. You will see how understanding the symbolism correctly leads to a beautiful and harmonious solution that fits perfectly with the current circumstances in the world today, as we presented in Part 2.

The Adventist Church has taught for generations that the mark of the beast is Sunday observance, because the papal beast (represented by Daniel’s “little horn”) demonstrated its supposed authority by changing times and laws.[24] This included setting the biblical seventh-day Sabbath Pirates of the law of God. aside and replacing it with its own Sun-day that it carried over from Pagan Rome.[25] Thus, Sunday worship became the mark of the beast’s authority, because by changing that law, wherein God’s seal is found, another mark of authority was established. It’s like when pirates would take control of a ship: they would take down the flag of the ship they raided and replace it with their own.

That was a completely valid interpretation for the mark of the beast, but God is not restricted to fulfilling His Word in that way! Today, Adventists are groping in the dark, trying desperately to find evidence for a coming Sunday law, because they see that the end is already here while Sunday legislation is far from the minds of the common people. They stumbled at His light from Orion because they loved not the truth, and now they have not the light of God to see that the Sunday law issue became a symbol for a law concerning its twin institution, marriage. They forget how it was in the late 1880s—how the Sunday issue was in the press daily and had many vocal advocates before the legislature. Should it be different today? There is nothing of that sort in relation to Sunday, but it is everywhere with regard to LGBT tolerance, etc.

The Ten Commandments as a chiasm. The structure of the commandments themselves allows for a reflection from one side to the other. There were two tables upon which the commandments were written. They naturally divide into the first four about our relationship to God, and the last six about our relationship to each other. When we first presented the light about the exchange of the twins, we noted that the Sabbath commandment is parallel to the fifth, sixth, and seventh commandments. In fact, if we look at the whole law a little more closely, we see that there is a complete reflection.

Pope Francis breaks the second commandment. We are commanded not to have any gods before God (1st), and this is reflected in the command against covetousness (10th), which is a craving for earthly things instead of God, who is Himself our reward. The command not to have any carved images and bow down to them (2nd) is reflected in the command against bearing false witness (9th), because they claim to represent those in heaven, but they do not.[26] We should not take God’s name in vain (3rd), because if we would not take His character or would not return a tithe of our income, we would be stealing either His name[27] or His resources[28] (8th).

Two tables of the law with two seals. The Sabbath commandment bears a three-part seal, which is commonly taught by Adventists: the Lord (name) is revealed as the Maker (title) of the heavens, the earth, the sea, and everything in them (territory), and honoring this seal conveys a blessing. The command is written in a positive form and serves as a seal over the commandments of the first stone table of the law. The other table reflects the fourth commandment with the fifth, sixth, and seventh commandments. The topmost of these, the fifth, is the only other commandment that is written in a positive form, and it also bears God’s seal, because the Lord (name) is revealed as the Giver (title) of the Promised Land (territory), which is the new earth, with all that is in it.

In the Sabbath commandment, we are reminded that God made the world and all the life in it, and in the sixth commandment, we are told not to murder—to take away a human life that God created.

Finally, just as God blessed and sanctified the Sabbath in the fourth commandment, so also He blessed and sanctified marriage, and therefore the seventh commandment forbids that it should be defiled. After instituting marriage, God sealed His work by resting on the seventh day. Thus, every facet of the Sabbath commandment is reflected in the three commandments pertaining to life and the family (consider also that “Thou shalt not kill” includes abortion[29]).

The arguments to support the Sunday law as the mark of the beast all apply equally well to the counterfeit family law, LGBT marriage equality. (Remember to read, watch, or download our explanation of the mark of the beast.) The prophecies are spiritual, and their spiritual meaning can be fulfilled with the seal of one table of the law or the seal of the other.

This is what Adventists fail to understand, stubbornly insisting that the Sunday law prophecies must be fulfilled literally as written, as church tradition has taught, instead of how God reveals through His Word. Some of the harshest words in Scripture have fulfilled on Adventists today through the crafty effort of Satan, who works…

…with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12)

It is necessary to love the truth more than the accepted church tradition. We call out to individuals to exercise their own freedom of thought and action, and “come out” from the deluded organizations who refuse to follow God.

Ignoring the reality of the missing Sunday law. Because Adventists had not the love for the truth He sent to them, they received strong delusion through the change from a literal fulfillment as Ellen White wrote about it to a representative fulfillment. The whole of Revelation is quickly fulfilling all around them while they wait… and wait… and wait… for that ever-elusive Sunday law to revive. Thus, they render themselves completely irrelevant to those whom they hope to minister to, while the plagues are falling all around them.

If their “beloved” Sunday law finally comes, it will come too late for decisions to be made for God, since that time is already past. The message of Time that they rejected speaks in a clear voice declaring that the plagues have begun, which is now apparent. You will see how clearly God makes that declaration from heaven, pointing directly to the horrendous revelation that is forcing the crisis in the Catholic Church!

The Decision to Punish

The child sex abuse scandal didn’t happen overnight. We’re not just talking about the 70 years of child sex abuse cases—or should we say, the nearly two millennia since the Roman culture was brought into the church including the abuse of human sexuality in general, forbidding to marry and secretly “working that which is unseemly”[30] like the Romans. But we’re talking about how the child sex abuse crimes came to light and began to stink in front of the whole world. The sex abuse scandal is wide-ranging, of course, but on top of the background of the John Jay Report and other factors that have contributed to the mounting crisis, God points to the key developments that led directly to the outbreak of the first plague.

In recent years, grand jury investigations in the city of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania, U.S., played a significant role, and saw the first convict in the U.S. for covering up abuses by other priests in his charge.[31] “Covering-up” does not describe the full weight of the crime, however. The standard procedure in churches is to move the clergy from one parish or church to another when problems arise, or even promote them to a higher level within the hierarchy. This movement as part of the cover-up process exposes other victims to the same predator. That is partly what makes the covering-up so heinous—not only is the plague unchecked, but it is actively spread, and the offenders are rewarded instead of punished.

It is not by accident that Philadelphia—the U.S. city with the same name as the biblical city in the book of Revelation—was the venue for a pivotal investigation into sex abuse crimes in the Catholic Church that led to the state-wide investigation. It is the largest city in the state of Pennsylvania, and as the epicenter of the scandal, it shows a stark contrast between the true biblical church of Philadelphia and the corrupt church of today. The biblical church of Philadelphia is without rebuke—something that cannot be said of a church embroiled in scandal.

If you are connected to the Catholic Church, or even just a mere Christian, you are surely already suffering as a result of the scandals, and far be it from us to add insult to injury. On the contrary, our hope is to provide you in this article with a strong motivation for “coming out”—not out of the closet, as Pope Francis invites, but out of the scandalous church, as many are already doing.[32] That might be an equally big and difficult step for some whose whole life has been bound up in the church, but it is a matter of eternal life and eternal death.

The report on child sex abuse, dated July 27, 2018 The press rightly refers to Pennsylvania’s grand jury report as a “damning report.” Those who should know the way of salvation and should have been leading others to Christ are met and condemned on their own ground:

During the grand jury investigation, a defrocked priest who had confessed to abusing children contended that he was unaware of the serious impact of his actions. [Senior Deputy Attorney General] Dye's response, quoted in the report: "You didn't know that Scripture itself says it is better to put a millstone around your neck and be cast into the sea than harm a child?"

By invoking Scripture, this report is exactly what it has been called: a “damning report.” Most of the cases have not been prosecuted in earthly courts, and most of the offenders have not been punished by earthly tribunals, but one thing is certain:

God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. (Ecclesiastes 12:14)

And God is in this. If you understand that God is not just Love, but also Time, then you will also understand how God is bringing every work in into judgment today, as the first plague is being poured out in its time, according to the clock of God.

Your “work” as a layperson or in any other capacity, which will also be judged according to Ecclesiastes 12:14 above, is to discern that the church as an organization is indeed damned. It has a systemic disease that is incurable; it is terminally ill. The only way of salvation in the church is the way out the door, and your job is to save as many people as you can, including yourself, by renouncing your membership or affiliation with the church, to join the blameless and true “church of Philadelphia” that also exists today.

God has a church. It is not the great cathedral, neither is it the national establishment, neither is it the various denominations; it is the people who love God and keep His commandments. “Where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst of them.” Where Christ is, even among the humble few, this is Christ’s church, for the presence of the High and Holy One who inhabiteth eternity can alone constitute a church. {17MR 81.4}

The true church is the body of those who, like Christ, are ready to sacrifice, whatever the cost, to rescue their fellow human beings from sin. That is true brotherly love.

“The city of brotherly love” was innocently named by its founder, William Penn, but it has since degenerated to become the city of “brotherly lust” instead. It is known for its “Gayborhood,” home to the largest celebration of National Coming Out Day in the world. This city was chosen for the 2015 World Meeting of Families, which drew many pilgrims from distant lands, some for no other reason than to see Pope Francis there. In light of the fact that Pope Francis chose another LGBT-friendly area for the meeting in 2018, which was called a “pro-gay hijack of the Family Meeting” by conservative Catholics, the question should be asked: Why do the church leaders lean toward such places for “Family” meetings? The pat answers are not satisfying.

The pope’s stop in Philadelphia was on his same visit to the United States where he was invited to address both houses of the U.S. Congress, as well as the General Assembly of the United Nations. You can see how the connection between the first and second beasts of Revelation 13, as explained in Part II, took shape. It was shown that Capricornus, the sea goat, represents the union of the beast from the sea (the Vatican) and the beast from the earth (the United States). Now you will see how God uses the symbolism in the heavens to send a very clear message about the Pennsylvania grand jury’s report:

Blood moon on the same day as the child sex abuse report.

The once-in-a-century conjunction of a blood moon with Mars depicted above happened in the land-animal part of Capricornus on the same day that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ordered the release of the grand jury’s report on child sex abuse in the Catholic Church. The U.S., as the two-horned, land beast that speaks like a dragon, is also the venue where the scandal came to light.

There we have the red planet, Mars, in conjunction with a blood moon—alluding to the Scriptural command to “reward her double” for her sins.[33] Like the repeated call for recompense in the report, the war planet signifies that militant action needs to be taken—even changing laws like the statutes of limitations—to bring due recompense for the horrific crimes that have been committed against unsuspecting and defenseless children.

If you consider the symbolism of Capricornus and the likelihood of this conjunction coinciding with the Supreme Court order, it becomes not just the blood moon of the century, but a once-in-two-millennia coincidence. It can only be the God of the universe—Time Himself—pointing to the decision to release this report as the beginning of the retribution through the plagues upon the great whore.

And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. (Revelation 17:16)

The whore, Babylon, represents the church that prostitutes itself to the nations instead of reserving herself in purity to God alone. The whole world watched the epitome of that prostitution when the head of the so-called Universal Church addressed all the nations of the world simultaneously on September 25, 2015. It could never be more fittingly said that “all the world wondered after the beast.”[34] The first time since then that the UN General Assembly was again on September 25—three years later—the head of the second beast of Revelation 13, which gives all homage to the first beast, spoke to the nations. Now the first beast has been wondered at and the second beast has caused the world to give him homage through all of the “accomplishments” he made with his tariff war on behalf of the pope, as explained in Part II. When the whole world laughs at the braggadocious leader of the greatest nation on earth speaking about his “accomplishments” on the anniversary of Pope Francis’ speech, it seems pretty clear that the praise and honor does not go to him, but to the humble little “man behind the curtain.”

If you think the guilt is limited to within the Catholic Church, think again. It was “Protestant” America that invited the first beast to speak to Congress in 2015. It was also the Protestant churches of America that united to elect Donald Trump to the presidency of the second beast. In so doing, they also abandoned their Husband and prostituted themselves to the State. The call to come out of Babylon is not just a call to come out of the Catholic Church, but a call to come out of all the churches that have prostituted themselves—in other words, all the churches. The guiltiest of all is the Seventh-day Adventist Church, whose pride and joy, presidential candidate Ben Carson, was the key instrumentality in uniting the churches behind Trump.[35]

The tables are turning, however, just as the prophecy states. The nations are beginning to hate the whore and put her to open shame in front of the world. This shame is so great that an American cardinal says his own mother is “embarrassed to be Catholic.”

This does not mean the nations themselves are changing their mind; nations are composed of many groups, and not all think or act alike. On the one hand, leaders like Trump love the support lent to them by the large numbers of religious people all influenced in the same direction. Recently he even expressed his great respect for the Catholic Church. The union of Church and State is a powerful, almost godlike autocratic force within the sphere of the churches’ influence. That’s what makes things like the comparison of Trump with Cyrus so downright dangerous, and he is obviously quite pleased with “the services” of such prostituting churches. In fact, he has since paid them another visit in the hopes that they can please him with another election.

On the other hand, there are those who, like Daniel Dye and the grand jury, are serving their respective countries through the justice system to ensure that serious crimes are punished—no matter who it is that commits them. The grand jury is made up of ordinary citizens, representing “we the people” who are the ones scandalized by the church. There are many dynamics at work within the single “beast” of one nation. The prophecies and heavenly symbols speak of all relevant aspects.

The Manger, or Beehive cluster. The true yet unseen church, symbolized in the heavens by the Beehive Star Cluster[36] within the constellation of Cancer, is constituted by those who will stand against evil, no matter the cost. The constellation of Cancer stands on the opposite side of the celestial sphere from Capricornus, the diabolical foe of the people of God. For that reason, the sun highlights the constellation of Cancer at the time of the lunar eclipse in Capricornus.[37] This has a double meaning: in one sense, it indicates the “cancer”[38] in the body of the church, which the Pennsylvania Supreme Court decided to expose exactly on the day of the lunar eclipse. However, it also highlights the battle between good and evil, and shows that vindication is coming to the true people of God, who stand in the light of the Sun of Righteousness—if they separate from the whore of Revelation and her daughters, taking refuge in small-group “clusters” within the greater framework of the historical Protestant faith.

The Preparation for Pouring Out the Plagues

The time leading up to August 20, 2018 was not only the period of time when the sixth trumpet was sounding, but it was also the time of preparation for the plagues. That is why the heavenly judgment books were closed; as in earthly courts, the disclosure of the crimes to the public comes after the investigations are complete. For the first plague to be poured out on August 20, 2018, the books had to close before that, and preparations had to be done, all during the time of the sixth trumpet. For that reason, the heavenly signs of the sixth trumpet have multiple interpretations. They reflect not only to the closing events of the Day of Atonement, but also to the preparations for pouring out the vials of God’s wrath.[39]

Chapter 15 of the Revelation describes the scenes leading up to the first plague, starting with the discovery of the great and marvelous sign, first published on June 30, 2018 in video format.[40]

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

This sign—greatly emphasized in Scripture—confirmed the beginning of the plague cycle of the Orion clock by the voice of God from the heavens. Remember, the Revelation must be understood in the context of the heavens. This verse introduces the great and marvelous sign, which is then detailed afterward in the following verses.

And I saw something like a sea of glass mixed with fire, and those who had been victorious over the beast and his image and the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, holding harps of God. (Revelation 15:2 NASB)

To guide us in understanding how the great and marvelous sign of verse 1 is to unfold over time, the Bible then describes further details, which we should be able to “see” in the heavens. The verse offers several key symbols, just like how a person giving directions would describe several important landmarks to help identify the route. The landmarks are: the sea of glass (twice mentioned), the victorious (faithful) saints, and the harps of God. These are all heavenly symbols that we are familiar with.

The twice mentioned sea of glass mingled with fire, we have long understood as a reference to the Orion Nebula, which is transparent and filled with fiery orbs, as “glass mingled with fire,” and it is the location from whence the Holy City will descend.[41] This is a strong hint that we need to have a view of Orion as we look for the heavenly picture this verse is describing.

However, we must also include the victorious saints in our view. As mentioned earlier, the heavenly symbolism to represent God’s people is the Beehive Cluster in Cancer. Thus, our view must include not only Orion, but also Cancer.

The last symbol mentioned are the harps of God. What good constellation is known for holding a harp, and sits between Orion and Cancer? Naturally it is Gemini, which is almost always depicted with a harp.

The only question remaining is: When should we look in this area? We can deduce the answer because we know 1) it must be before the great and marvelous sign on August 20, since this text is describing the scenes leading up to the first plague, 2) it must be while Cancer was activated, because of the victorious saints, who are the main subject of this verse, and 3) something in Orion must indicate that the saints are “standing” on the sea of glass.

The blood moon kicking off the fifth plague.

Here we see on August 7/8, 2018—less than two weeks before the first plague is poured out—all the specifications of the verse. The sun, activating Cancer, highlights the Beehive Cluster (Praesepe, or Manger) as the victorious saints. They in turn are represented as standing on the sea of glass through the lesser light, the moon, standing on (or over) the Orion Nebula. The sun indicates the subject, and the moon shows the relationship to the sea of glass. And between the two constellations ruled by these two great lights is Gemini—which contributes the harp(s).

We have now seen all our landmarks for this verse, and are thus prepared to go from that point in time and follow the sequence of events described in the following verses.

Verses 3 and 4 speak about the singing of the song of Moses and the Lamb. It is the song of self-sacrificing humility that we have been repeatedly emphasizing in stark contrast to the self-assertion of the Pride movement. Since we’ve spoken a lot about that already, we will only gloss over it here. This sacrifice characterizes those who will be victorious in the end; they have the clocks of God and understand the signs of the coming of Jesus. A future article will be devoted to the subject of who these people are who sing this song, which will take us to the culminating point in the book of Revelation. These are the ones who are praising God for manifesting Himself at this time. For the present purpose, however, the next verse that deals directly with the subject of pouring out the plagues is verse 5:

And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened: (Revelation 15:5)

This short verse is a mouthful, and needs to be broken down piece by piece. There are three key terms: the temple, the tabernacle, and the testimony. What it means that this plays out in heaven, is that we must look up to the heavens again to compare what we see there to the biblical description in order to understand what God is saying through this verse.

First, let’s take “the testimony.” In biblical terms, the testimony refers to either the Ten Commandments specifically or more generally to God’s promise to the human race, also called the Testament. It is the written legal document that guarantees God’s promises to the beneficiaries. It has taken many forms throughout history,[42] and has always been treasured and guarded by people faithful to God, as we already saw.

And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. (Revelation 12:17)

Just as the two tables of the Ten Commandments were kept in the midst of the camp of Israel, the testimony of Jesus Christ is also found in the midst of God’s people today; it is their testimony. It is what they think about, speak about, act according to, and promote:

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates. (Deuteronomy 6:4-9)

The testimony is held by God’s people, who are represented by the Beehive Cluster. That is their “house” in the heavenly symbolism. When the Bible speaks of “the tabernacle of the testimony” in verse 15:5, it is speaking of the Beehive Cluster—the tabernacle where God’s people are and where the testimony is.

If you read the verse without the heavenly picture in mind, it is a bit strange that it speaks of the “temple” of the “tabernacle,” because one normally thinks of the tabernacle and the temple as one and the same thing, but it speaks as if one house is inside another house. However, it is perfectly plain in the heavenly symbolism: the Beehive Cluster (the tabernacle) is in fact inside the larger “temple” of the constellation Cancer—which was illuminated by the sun in the heavenly picture of the previous verse, before the sun passed into Leo. And of course, for the sun to pass out of “the temple,” the door needed to be opened as the verse says (yellow markings as follows):

The open door of Philadelphia.

The picture above shows the exact minute when the sun leaves Cancer. This is when the door of Cancer (the temple) is opened. According to the promise to God’s church of Philadelphia, the Sun of Righteousness opened the door:

And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David [the Lion of the tribe of Judah], he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. (Revelation 3:7-8)

The symbolism of the opening of the temple in verse 15:5 speaks of the exact day when the sun entered Leo—August 10/11, 2018—and thus the Sun of Righteousness was seen in His royal robes ready to exercise His executive power to punish the wicked. This is the context in which the whole chapter begins, as set forth in the chapter before:

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)

A fulfillment of Revelation 14:19, which indicates the vintage of the bad grapes, should have to do with the Sickle asterism of Leo, similarly to how the moon sickle was instrumental in Orion's hand while Jesus was interceding as the High Priest.[43] But in the symbolism of chapter 15, the moon is no longer described as a sickle but as a vial—the cup of the wrath of God that transports the seven last plagues.

In the next verse in the sequence of Revelation 15, we should be able to identify the seven “angels”:

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

Since they come out of the temple, we begin at the temple, inclusive of the temple itself in the biblical Jewish-inclusive way, to look for and count the angels. Of course, we are now counting the seven plague angels that were shown in the great and marvelous sign: Cancer (for the first plague), Leo (for the second), Virgo, Libra, Ophiuchus/Scorpius, Sagittarius, and finally Capricornus. These are the seven “angels” (constellations) coming from the temple, Cancer (inclusive).

At this point, the next verse of Revelation 15 is fulfilled:

And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever. (Revelation 15:7)

Here we discover the solution to a riddle that no other Bible interpreter could ever decipher. There are four different living beings, or “beasts” around the throne in the throne-room vision of Revelation 4, and the text gives no further specification as to which one delivers the vials of wrath. Only by looking at the firmament can we see that it was Leo—the lion—who presented the vials of the plagues to the seven angels by virtue of the fact that the sun activates Leo at precisely this time.

In the previous picture, you can see that the moon’s conjunction with Mercury is very near (within about 2 hours) of the moment the sun activates Leo. The sun and moon work together here to tell the heavenly story, similarly to how they worked together previously to show the relationship between the victorious saints in Cancer and the sea of glass in Orion. This time, since Leo, being activated by the sun, symbolizes the “giver” of the plagues to be poured out, the vessel moon would logically point to the “receiving” angel and his vial. We have often known the moon as a vessel,[44] due in part to its characteristic filling and emptying every month.

The immediate conjunction of the moon with Mercury shows the first plague angel, Cancer, receiving the plague liquid via the moon into his own vial, Mercury, on August 10/11, 2018. Next, the moon quickly moves to the sun for the second plague angel, Leo, to receive his plague into his vial, the sun. Note that the constellations and planets (or sun in this case) have double roles. The beast does not give the plague to himself, but in the heavenly symbolism Leo stands for both the giving beast and the second plague angel. Likewise, the sun has the role of activating the lion beast, and also serving as the vial of the second plague angel. We should be careful to maintain the distinction of these roles.

Next, the moon goes to Virgo, as the third plague angel, to deliver the plague into his vial, Venus, and so on. The whole story is told in the heavens. This distribution process begins on August 10/11, 2018 (which we already saw as an important date) and takes place while Leo—one of the four beasts—is activated by the sun, in fulfillment of the text.

We already learned from the sixth trumpet symbolism that the black new moon in proximity to the fiery sun represents smoke, and again we see that when the plague distribution begins (pictured earlier when the sun “opens the door” of the temple) and the new moon—still in Cancer—approaches near the sun, the Bible speaks of smoke again:

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

The sun in Leo, symbolizing the glory of God, floods the temple (Cancer). The moon is silhouetted against that brightness as the smoke from the glory of God.

Interestingly, no man was able to enter the temple till after the plagues. Could that mean Cancer will receive no visiting planets during that time, once Mercury leaves? That is correct! Mercury leaves on August 29, 2018, and aside from the moon, which is defined in the context of this verse as the “smoke” that fills the temple as it blows through each month, no other planet ever enters Cancer again until Mercury returns on June 24, 2019—over a month after the Second Coming. It fits the text perfectly; no “man” was able to enter till the seven plagues were fulfilled.

We are now ushered directly into the next chapter, where the plagues are poured out.

And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. (Revelation 16:1)

A great voice indicates one of the great lights in the heavens. The sun’s presence in Leo, still standing in the doorway of the “temple” signifies the beginning of the outpouring of God’s wrath upon the world, as already understood. However, there is a little space of time during which the seven angels must “go their ways” to their appointed places in time. That means if we want to understand how the plagues (especially the first) are poured out in terms of real-world events, we need to track what happens in the heavens from this point forward until the first plague is poured out.

And the First Went…

As we follow the heavenly movements forward from the previous point, August 10/11, 2018, the first interesting thing that catches our attention is that the fast-moving moon quickly goes into conjunction with Venus, whose position in the head-and-shoulders section of Virgo we had already seen in Part I to have great significance in the context of the sixth trumpet interpretation. Now, the moon arrives as part of the delivery of the plagues (the third plague, as noted earlier).

The golden cup of poison at the head of the church.

Remember, Venus also imparts the golden color to the chalice (constellation of Crater), as explained in The Grand Finale. In this way, Virgo represents the harlot church by having the golden cup in her hand.

And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: (Revelation 17:4)

Thus, in the picture above, in addition to the moon signifying the delivery of the plagues, we also have a picture of Venus, in its role as the destroyer, who is empowered by that delivery. He is ready to strike the leadership of the Church on this date of August 14, 2018. Everything is ready and set for the first plague to follow.

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

This “going” to pour out the plague is only mentioned for the first angel. That is only logical, since the other angels have ample time to go to their positions, but it nevertheless shows a unique feature of the first plague: the heavenly sign indicates an event on August 14, just a few days before the plague was due to be poured out.

The earthly event, of course, was the public report on the sex abuse scandal that brought the noisome and grievous sore of the first plague upon the beast-fearing world—but let’s not move too fast. When the court, back on July 27, ordered the release of the grand jury’s report, they included a deadline for publishing the report: August 14, 2018. Because of this deadline, the report’s release was not a surprise to those who were following the developments. It was certainly not a surprise to Pope Francis, who tweeted about it a few hours before its release. The snapshot above shows the heavens at the moment of his tweet, which read:

Still today there are so many martyrs, so many who are persecuted for the love of Christ. They are the real strength of the Church!

The martyr mentality couldn’t come across more bluntly in his tweet. It caused a variety of negative reactions, primarily for not addressing the serious allegations against the Church that were to be published that day. Nevertheless, it shows that Pope Francis was in anticipation, and wanted to pull his fellow “martyrs” together to brace themselves for the “persecution” for the “love” of “Christ.”[45]

The fact that he was expecting the report casts a darker hue on his responses to the abuses, both publicly after the report, and within the Vatican before the report. His failure to treat such grievous sins with appropriate severity in full knowledge that the church was under investigation and tough scrutiny shows that he himself simply does not regard the offenses as weighty sins. As he said after the report:

…it seems that the Great Accuser has been unchained and is attacking bishops [do the children matter?]. True, we are all sinners, we bishops. He tries to uncover the sins, so they are visible in order to scandalize the people.

His words either place child sex abusers on the same level as “all sinners”, or admit that all bishops (including himself) are guilty of scandalous sins. Either way, it shows a detachment of conscience that is as unprecedented as his papacy and equally unbefitting of his office—unless you understand what his office really is.

The quote above casts a new light on what he meant with his viral saying, “Who am I to judge?” Could it be that instead of stemming from supposed humility, it was a confession of guilt? “We bishops are all sinners,” after all, and “we have all done equally scandalous things, so who are we to judge a homosexual who professes belief in Christ?” In “clarifying remarks,” the pope said that he wants homosexuals to come to confessionConfessional system promotes the LGBT agenda.. Think for a moment, now. What do you think happens when young homosexual boys come out to a priest, if the priest himself is a predator? It is clearly an ideal situation to identify fresh meat for prey! The whole system is designed to foster the homosexual cancer: first, the confessional offers a way for the cancer to grow under the radar, while regular metastasis is facilitated by the transfer of clergy whenever there is a problem. It’s a cancer-prone system, and no amount of “therapy” can cure it.

A real case in point should suffice to show the problem. A gay went to confession (not anonymously) and was given no punishment, no counsel, no nothing… and later he becomes a gay rights activist. Regardless of what does or doesn’t happen behind closed doors, the exemplary confessional experience portrayed in this case leads to the furtherance of the LGBT agenda, and that is just how the pope wants it.

Someone might be tempted to raise the usual straw-man arguments. After all, how cruel would it be for a priest to condemn a poor gay kid to hell for something he can’t control? The issue is quickly and unequivocally answered by a simple, “Don’t do it.” Don’t act on wrong impulses. Wrong impulses are not sin, but acting on them is sin. Don’t practice morally unclean behaviors. It’s no different than any other “Thou shalt not.” It’s plain and simple, and it puts no guilt on any LGBT-identifying person as long as they don’t commit acts of sin.

If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. (Genesis 4:7)

The problem is, the world doesn’t want to be sin-free. The world is proud of its debauchery, and the Pride movement says so in its very name. Its aim is to legalize and promote conscience-destroying sin world-wide.

When a person practices acts as self-degrading as sodomy, also known as buggery, such a person detaches their own conscience. A person cannot have an intact conscience while practicing the class of filthy acts that same-sex marriage legitimizes. After multiple chapters outlining the proper marital requirements of clergymen, Paul says the following:

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared [Strong’s: to brand ("cauterize")] with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry… (1 Timothy 4:1-3)

This is a direct indictment of the Catholic Church for its doctrine and practice of forbidding priests to marry, in contradiction to whole chapters of the Bible that precede the quote above. Paul identifies this teaching as a departure from the faith and as a hypocritical doctrine that originates from devils—from those whose conscience has been removed and the broken connections cauterized! Hot iron is used for branding—i.e. with the mark of the beast. Removing the conscience from man degrades him to the level of brute beast.

Friend, if you still have your conscience—if it hasn’t been destroyed by the onslaught of LGBT propaganda, and you can still see that it is an abuse of the human body—not just of minors—to gratify the base passions in ways that multiply the risk of sexually transmitted diseases and other medical problems many-fold,[46] then friend, it’s time to heed the call and FLEE FROM SODOM AND GOMORRAH! …Before you find that you have unwittingly sacrificed your own children to the LGBT hordes and been defiled in your own person, as would have happened to Lot, had not angels called him out of that place. Let this be your angelic call; don’t wait for apparitions to drag you out by the hand, because that will never happen.

This is no longer just about leaving fallen churches. The conscience of whole national governments has been severed by the legalization of same-sex marriage. EVERY QUARTER of the globe is under attack, and few nations are still resisting[47] the onslaught. It is time for the people of God to leave even their homes and homelands if necessary to escape the wrath of God that is coming as surely as it did in the past.

And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; (2 Peter 2:6)[48]

Read the whole chapter for a scathing denunciation of the leaders of today’s Catholic Church—coming from the so-called “first pope,” the apostle Peter himself! Compare his potent words to the weak verbiage of the ones who purport to sit in his seat!

Pope Francis is forced to write his letter for the day of the Plague. In anticipation of the child sex abuse report, Pope Francis didn’t clean house. Instead, he played the victim with his tweet the day the report was due to be released. In referring to the “strength of the Church,” he was clearly not referring to the victims of sexual abuse, many of whom lost all confidence in the Church and God because of it. He was casting the accused hierarchy as the martyrs and the persecuted! The comments on his tweet show the people’s rightful disgust at him.

Once the first angel “went his way,” it did not take long before the horrible smell of the Church’s wounds reached the man of sin himself. Pope Francis was pressed to write an official letter released on the exact date of the first plague, August 20, 2018, because the timing of the grand jury’s report and the McCarrick affair in the days before did not leave him many options. The ultimate responsibility for the scandal’s stink in the nostrils of the world had fallen upon him, and he had to say something before the opening of the World Meeting of Families the following day.

The Noisome and Grievous Sore

The king planet enters for judgment. By now you have seen enough evidence to know that the first plague really does have everything to do with the sex abuse scandal in the Catholic Church. You’ve seen how great heavenly signs have been pointing to the scandal, first with the most spectacular blood moon of the century in conjunction with the red planet Mars pointing to the Pennsylvania supreme court’s order to release the report, and second with the moon in conjunction with Venus the destroyer in the head of Virgo for the delivery of the report itself. These signs show that heaven’s eyes are on the scandal—since the king planet Jupiter arrived at the balance to mete out judgment. In previous parts of this series, you’ve seen how the Bible prophecies have been fulfilled in heaven and on the earth, and how the trumpets give the plagues a great deal of context, showing that dissenters from the mark and image of the beast are being furiously pursued around the world by Trump’s no-buying-or-selling war. You saw how the prostituting churches, symbolized by Virgo, are especially judged by the wrath of God for crimes committed over the past 70 years.

The timeframe of 70 years calls to mind the duration of the Jews’ exile in Babylon, and therefore the fact that this report comes at the end of 70 years of abuse against God’s innocent children signals the fall of Babylon like never before:

And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. (Revelation 17:5)

It is precisely the fall of ancient Babylon that is called to mind in the plagues, specifically the sixth, which refers to the drying of the Euphrates as the mode through which the ancient city was conquered. The public airing of the crimes committed by the Catholic Church over that number of years has indeed struck the head of the Church, Pope Francis himself, forcing him to issue an official letter “to the people of God.”

It is important to note that the pope’s letter was not addressed solely to the Catholic Church, despite being represented that way. It was addressed to the “people of God” of all denominations. Pope Francis sees himself—with the consent of the leaders of all the major denominations—as the chief representative of Christianity as a whole. And indeed, the world sees him that way, too, as the chief of the World Council of Churches said:[49]

"I think that many Christians, whether they are Catholics or not, see him [Pope Francis] as a strong voice for what we want to say as Christians today."

"We want to ask for justice, work for peace, and give a message of the love of God, of inclusiveness, of giving hope to those who need it."

"In that sense, he speaks for all Christians," he said.

Non-Catholic churches are suffering from the same wounds as are plaguing the Catholic church because they have aligned with it and share its goals and work together with it.

In his letter, the pope uses language that nearly perfectly echoes that used in Scripture to describe the first plague… only he describes the wounds that the church has inflicted on its victims. Recognizing this sinister twist, his letter takes on a whole new—and fittingly diabolical—meaning. His forked tongue can be discerned from the opening line onward:

“If one member suffers [through abuse], all suffer together with it [through public shame]” (1 Cor 12:26). These words of Saint Paul forcefully echo in my heart [with resentment] as I acknowledge once more the suffering endured by many minors [meaning “insignificant ones”] due to sexual abuse, the abuse of power and the abuse of conscience perpetrated by a significant number [the ones who are important] of clerics and consecrated persons. Crimes that inflict deep wounds [on the church—the sores of the plague—] of pain and powerlessness [to prevent them from being exposed], primarily among the victims [the poor priests and bishops], but also in their [clerical] family members and in the larger community of believers [“Christian” church leaders] and nonbelievers [non-Christian religious leaders] alike.

With a tone of regret, he acknowledges “that these wounds never disappear and that they require us forcefully to condemn these atrocities…” The church is forced to condemn them against their expressed wishes (expressed through the many cover-ups), only because “these wounds never go away” from view—a repeated thought in the letter.

Wounds of that description are what we would call “ulcers” today, as the dictionary corroborates:

noun: ulcer; plural noun: ulcers

an open sore on an external or internal surface of the body, caused by a break in the skin or mucous membrane

• a moral blemish or corrupting influence.

“he’s a con man with an incurable ulcer called gambling”

Such “open sores” are exactly what the first plague brings:

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

In the U.S., the FBI is even threatening a national investigation into the Catholic Church now. Director Christopher Wray said the following (emphasis his):

When we have the facts, and we have the law, and we have the evidence to support an investigation, there is NO institution that we're afraid to investigate. Period.[50]

When you read some of the stories of the sex abuse victims, you quickly feel how sickening and offensive these crimes are. The pope seems to admit that their pain “cries out to heaven,” although this expression, biblically, pertains to the sins of Babylon and its own cry of pain from its punishment, which again makes you question who the “victims” are that he refers to—the abuse “survivors,” as he points out, or the “martyrs” of the hierarchy, as in his tweet that we saw earlier![51]

The church leaders are crying to heaven because of their pain, but it is the pain of embarrassment, not the pain of injustice and brokenness for which the true victims cry out. With such a twisted example at the head of the church, is it any wonder that his undershepherds manifest the same sickness? From the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report:

In another case, a priest raped a girl, got her pregnant, and arranged an abortion. The bishop expressed his feelings in a letter: “This is a very difficult time in your life, and I realize how upset you are. I too share your grief.” But the letter was not for the girl. It was addressed to the rapist.

To the abused, God says in Orion, “I remember the sins of your abusers.” His clock marks the times when vengeance is poured out upon them in the plagues—and the putrid sores of this scandal are just from the first. Vengeance belongs to the Lord, and He will repay,[52] but as He does, you need to step away, lest you receive their punishment!

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)

On the very day of August 20, 2018, which was marked far in advance as the beginning of the first plague on God’s holy clock of Orion, the pope was constrained to condemn the sins of his Church, which had reached the top. Normally, acknowledging sin is the first step toward repentance, but as we’ve seen, even in the fifth plague, there will still be no repentance, and the sores that are causing so much pain to the church will still be there. Why? Because repentance means to go back. It means taking an action to reverse the path that led to the sin.

In the context of child sexual abuse by a religious figure, the only way to go back is to strip the perpetrator of his office and turn him over to the civil authorities to be investigated and punished according to the laws of the land. It means finding the root cause of this widespread problem, including the doctrinal and traditional errors that facilitate it, and that is something the pope did not and will not do. That is something the responsible church leaders at every level did not and will not do. It would mean a complete overhaul of the church, but they do not want such a thing. They not only covered these grave sins, but promoted those who committed them because they take pleasure in sin.

Sure, the Pope will defrock a priest here and there to make it look like he’s doing something about it—like the recent example of a Chilean priest accused of child sex abuse[53]—but without getting to the root of the problem, many more abusers will always lurk in the shadows. After his letter was released, many voices were immediately raised in criticism of the pope (and predecessors, including Benedict XVI and John Paul II) for the very reason that real change is far away. One stated the inexplicable as follows:

Francis has not yet announced what concrete goals the Vatican will pursue to change its culture or seek redress for the victims.

Is it possible that after five and a half years of his pontificate, the guy still has no intention of cleaning up the real problems in the Church? What happened to all his turning things upside-down in the Vatican in his first year? For all his humble bravado, is the Great Reformer of the Curia unable to even begin to clean up the one issue that really matters most to the members of his Church? After all this time, why hasn’t his council of laughing hyenas[54] helped him with this?

Of course, there is one simple answer to all those questions: they are simply part of the problem, all the way up to the pope himself, according to the August 22 testimony of the former papal ambassador to the U.S., because the pope allegedly knew of the sexual abuse case of a high-ranking Cardinal, Theodore McCarrick and consciously covered it up and gave McCarrick further opportunities instead of punishing him—until the publicity of his case became a threat, of course.

Do you see now why the conjunction of the moon with the destroyer, Venus, in the heavenly sign of August 14, 2018, took place in the head-and-shoulders section of Virgo? This plague that came to light on that date implicates even the head of the Church!

But within seven days, the first angel “went,” and on the very day of the great and marvelous sign of August 20, 2018, which is explained in The Books Are Closed, the first plague was visibly poured out on the earth. Watch the last two videos in that article if you haven’t already! The seven plague angels are depicted in seven constellations, each holding their planetary vial within their borders on that date:

The plague angels lined up and ready to go.

The first plague corresponds to the constellation of Cancer, the crab, an animal for which the dreaded disease was also named[55] that every year afflicts millions more people, and to which the scandal has often been compared.[56] But without treatment, cancer is a deadly disease! And at this point in time, it has gone untreated so long that the prognosis is bleak: 6 months to live. And the clock is ticking.

As we’ve pointed out, the more perceptive observers of the Roman Church’s culture know that the real deadly cancer is not just child sex abuse, but homosexual predators. One such voice has expressed his concern this way:[57]

Worryingly, Dr. Richard Fitzgibbons, who has psychiatrically treated large numbers of priests over 34 years, has said that “every priest whom I treated who was involved with children sexually had previously been involved in adult homosexual relationships.”

The Catholic Church is called “Roman” for a reason. The papal title of Pontifex Maximus derives from the Roman emperors, who were almost all homosexual.[58]

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

When you understand that the mark of the beast is nothing other than same-sex marriage, or in other words codified sodomy, which is the complete destruction of marriage as God instituted it and sealed it on the seventh day, then you understand why the first plague is selectively poured out on the church that has homosexual perversion at the foundation of its roots. If you are a Catholic, we do not say these things against you personally, but the historical facts need to be made transparent at every level so you can respond to the call of Joshua:

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. (Joshua 24:15)

What do you think was the overall message to the World Meeting of Families, when for the venue, Pope Francis chose Ireland? That nation’s recent changes are well known:

The last three years in Ireland have seen huge social change reflected in referendums and legislation: marriage equality in 2015; the progressive Gender Recognition Act in the same year addressing the rights of trans people; and 2018’s referendum removing the eighth amendment, Ireland’s constitutional ban on abortion, and legalizing terminations up to 12 weeks.[59]

Pope Francis is clearly sending mixed signals, trying to walk the tightrope between liberal and conservative. But he is slipping, and people are seeing through his maneuvering.

The corrupt world tries to say that sexual perversions (love without bounds) are only bad when they are injurious to others and that nothing is wrong as long as the sexual practices are consensual. The law of God, however, speaks unequivocally against sexual perversion, including sodomy:

If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. (Leviticus 20:13)

For today’s church, to “put to death” would mean something like excommunication. It means there should be zero tolerance in the church for such perversions. It is poetic justice that the first plague is “killing” the cardinals of the Church, like Cardinal Dolan, who said his mother’s embarrassment of being Catholic “did him in” or in other words “killed” him.

Lest one think the death penalty for homosexual intercourse was only an Old Testament law, the apostle Paul says the same thing in his letter to the Romans, in terms that amount to a scathing rebuke to the “Romans” of today:

Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. (Romans 1:24-32)

Pope Francis embraces child sex abuser McCarrick in 2015. In the previously quoted testimony of Archbishop Viganò, who was certainly in the know by virtue of his high office as apostolic nuncio to the United States and Secretary-General of the Governorate of Vatican City State before that, he clearly describes how Pope Francis “had pleasure” in Cardinal McCarrick, making him his trusted counsellor.

As a defense, the pope refused to comment. However, many are recognizing that silence in the face of such verifiable assertions is very opaque and tantamount to covering up, one more time. Silence is not always golden. Pennsylvania’s attorney general made it very clear that the Vatican was in the know, and that means a paper trail must surely exist, because—as Daniel Dye verified—Catholic Church canon law requires it. Could it be that the pope’s silence means that he is trying to avoid revealing his own culpability?

The cries of the abused have indeed reached heaven, as the pope admits, and it will end for him the same way it ended for Sodom:

And the Lord said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know. (Genesis 18:20-21)

And the destruction of Sodom was accomplished by the same three agencies that are specified in the sixth trumpet prophecy: fire, smoke, and brimstone.

Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven; And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the Lord: And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace. (Genesis 19:24-28)

That means the trade wars that Trump is waging against the nations will ultimately fall back on Babylon in the collapse of all her merchandising, just as Revelation 18 signifies.

In one thing, the father of lies said the truth in his letter:

I am conscious of the effort and work being carried out in various parts of the world to come up with the necessary means to ensure the safety and protection of the integrity of children and of vulnerable adults, as well as implementing zero tolerance and ways of making all those who perpetrate or cover up these crimes accountable. We have delayed in applying these actions and sanctions that are so necessary, yet I am confident that they will help to guarantee a greater culture of care in the present and future.

A pope who is conscious of efforts toward zero tolerance and accountability and yet himself covers up such perversity is exposing himself as a fraud, and as someone who is saying one thing and doing another. Satan is the master of dissimulation.

Is it believable when he insinuates that salvation is to be found through solidarity with the Church, as a single body that suffers together? If you are not yet where you should be, the Lord Himself calls you, dear reader, along with the rest of His people:

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. 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)

If one only reads the introduction to the Grand Jury Report, one can’t help but feel a deep sense that recompense must be rewarded to the perpetrators of these crimes, just as the Lord calls for in the above verse. To have these great moral crimes covered up in the name of protecting the institution of the church at all costs shows a moral void as vast as the farthest reaches of God’s love. That sense that restitution needs to be made is why the grand jury wishes to lift the statute of limitations:

But we [the grand jury] are not satisfied by the few charges we can bring, which represent only a tiny percentage of all the child abusers we saw. We are sick over all the crimes that will go unpunished and uncompensated. This report is our only recourse. We are going to name their names, and describe what they did – both the sex offenders and those who concealed them. We are going to shine a light on their conduct, because that is what the victims deserve.

Even those participating in cover-ups know that God is a rewarder of secret deeds:

…in the Diocese of Erie, despite a priest’s admission to assaulting at least a dozen young boys, the bishop wrote to thank him for “all that you have done for God’s people…. The Lord, who sees in private, will reward.”

Their just reward is coming swiftly, and it is not limited to the pope and the perpetrators of the crimes. This plague affects the world, insofar as the world has adopted the beast’s mark and image.

The Earth Is Affected

It is not only the Catholic Church (which has the mark of the beast) that is especially named in the Bible:

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

Pope Francis welcomed to the UN in the US. The noisome and grievous sores are afflicting the whole Christian world, including all those who welcomed the pope to the US and the UN in 2015. It was those same Christians who catapulted the wrecking ball known as Trump into the White House, to cause a shakeup that has been unsettlingly similar in some ways to what Pope Francis did at the Vatican. But like the “cleansing” of the Curia, Trump’s brash leadership has done nothing to address the root problem of the nation’s apostasy from God. Same-sex marriage is still U.S. law. For all his Christian support, Trump has not lifted a finger to correct the abomination against heaven that the nation embraces. If you supported either Trump or Pope Francis, it’s high time to withdraw from their team.

Sin is contagious, and there is such a thing as guilt by association. All the denominations that joined hands with the Catholics (most of which were formerly Protestant) should have taken Revelation 18:4 into account. There is only one way out of the cancer that is plaguing the Catholic Church, and that is departure, which is happening in record numbers. One report indicates that “the Catholic church has lost more members in recent decades than any other major faith.” It is no wonder that few in Ireland turned out to see the pope.

It is no coincidence that as the first plague began, President Trump also suffered from “deep wounds“ in the wake of Michael Cohen’s pleading guilty to eight criminal charges, some of which directly implicate the President. And even his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is having to face accusations of sexual misconduct from his youth, which brings to the forefront the importance of preserving the sacredness of sexuality, even in youth.

The sexual union is one that God set apart in holiness, and when we treat it as a common or casual thing, we desecrate that holiness, and do harm to the hearts and minds involved, which is only repairable through the work of Christ in those who repent. Today, we see how the casual treatment of sexuality is adding to the public stench that surrounds the presidency of the United States, an office where one should find an exemplary model of morality. Only God can account for the magnitude of emotional trauma that has been multiplied as a result of this wrong course, and now He is beginning to punish.

Those who want Trump impeached for his misconduct—which included paying hush money to try to soothe the painful boils of his adulterous relationships in order to influence the election—say “the countdown to impeachment has already started.”[60] Trump’s response? He completely sidesteps all moral responsibility and rests his case solely on his performance and intellect, which he obviously esteems quite highly:

“I don’t know how you can impeach somebody who has done a great job,” Mr Trump told Fox News. “I will tell you what, if I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash. I think everybody would be very poor because, without this thinking, you would see – you would see numbers that you wouldn’t believe, in reverse.”

Overinflated ego aside, don’t overlook the real irony that Trump himself “prophesied” (or threatened) the crash of global merchandising, just as Revelation 18 prophesies will happen—whether or not he stays in office.

As a nation, the US put its full weight behind the mark of the beast to “encourage” other countries to follow suit. It used its influence, abusing the name of Christ as a so-called Christian nation, to tear down the establishment of marriage that was handed down from Eden, directly from the Creator’s hand. All those who worship (or give respect to) LGBT lifestyles—Catholic or Protestant—are starting to suffer from the painful sores of Revelation 16:2, right on schedule, according to the Clock of God.

Trusted (as well as untrusted) voices are rising to confront Trump. “Fear: Trump in the White House” was released on 9/11,[61] indirectly suggesting that it exposes Trump in a way that makes it the 9/11 of the Trump administration, similarly to how the sex abuse crisis was said to be the Catholic Church’s 9/11.[62]

Protestant leaders bless then candidate Trump, their pick. The head of “Protestant” America—the Protestants’ “man of the house”—has had a scandalous presidency that has been a plague to America too.[63] To the embarrassment of his Christian supporters, he is being accused of adultery by the porn star “Stormy Daniels.” Just having to talk about it makes a lot of his Christian support base cringe—those who still have a sense of morality, at least.

Her book called “Full Disclosure” is set to be published on October 2, 2018[64]—the very first day of the second plague. That means from the head of the biggest Church to the head of the biggest State, sex scandals of the Roman variety or the “Christian” variety have defined the first plague from beginning to end.

The Desecration of Marriage

After dealing with the comparatively worse issues of child sex abuse and homosexuality, adultery might seem to be a lighter thing. However, it is not. The Counsel on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (CBMW), which published the very good Nashville Statement affirming the Bible’s teaching on sexuality and marriage, recently sent out a letter in which they venture to answer the question of how society fell so quickly into “gender and sexual confusion.” They identify the cause as follows:

This is an important and useful question to ponder. What tributaries led to the roaring flood of present confusion around marriage, sex, and even such basic questions as what it means to be male or female? One tributary that honesty demands we recognize is the church’s less than perfect track record on divorce and remarriage. The church’s failure to call its members to a higher vision than serial monogamy has led to generations of children who were reared in broken homes with parents who may have nodded to the biblical view of marriage, but lived in a way that denied it.[65]

“Serial monogamy” is a classy expression for an all-too-common phenomenon, especially in the United States. As one blogger put it, slightly inaccurately: “Serial monogamy is being in a committed sexually monogamous relationship but doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll being with that person til death do you part.[66] I say it is inaccurate because of one contradictory word: “committed.” One cannot claim to truly be committed to a relationship that is known from the beginning that if at any point, either party doesn’t feel like making it work, they can cancel the commitment and move on to the next relationship. That’s about as committed as President Trump’s signature on an international agreement, which Iran once warned could be negated before he gets home![67]

This mentality of leaving open a way of escape if it gets too hard, minimizes the sanctity of a marriage right from the beginning, not to mention that it undermines God’s law, since the “way out” in such a relationship leads to adultery—divorce and remarriage without the cause of sexual infidelity. Jesus had a higher standard, which has been essentially forgotten—thrown to the trash heap of modern culture, like India has done with its law against adultery just since we published Part 2![68]

Serial monogamy.

But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery. (Matthew 5:32)

Thus, the holiness and blessing of God is forfeited for such uncommitted marriages, as it degrades the solemn covenant before God into a merely human temporal contract. Many are thus led into “serial monogamy,” jumping from one relationship to another in a never-ending quest for selfish gratification.

What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. (Mark 10:9)

The word fornication, however, is pornea in Greek. It encompasses the gamut of illicit sexual acts.[69] Not everything is allowed, even for married couples.

Men and women, you will one day learn what is lust, and the result of its gratification. Passion of just as base a quality may be found in the marriage relation as outside of it.—The Review and Herald, September 19, 1899. {TSB 111.2}

If a licentious husband or wife urges or consents to sexual practices that are unclean in the sight of God, they defile the marriage bed! That is included as grounds for divorce according to the Author of marriage, quoted above in Matthew 5:32. The modern counsel that any particular sexual practice is acceptable as long as both people consent to it is wrong. The question is to be asked: Does God approve of it?

Sexual practices which are contrary to God's expressed will are adultery and premarital sex, as well as obsessive sexual behavior. Sexual abuse of spouses, sexual abuse of children, incest, homosexual practices (gay and lesbian), and bestiality are among the obvious perversions of God's original plan.[70]

To that list should be added masturbation and oral sex[71] among the host of other “unobvious perversions” that constitute a growing array of polluting sexual practices as unlimited as the unbridled imagination of the unchaste mind. The American health reformer Sylvester Graham explained the seventh commandment as follows:

UNCHASTITY includes all the action, whether of body or mind, which is forbidden by the seventh commandment. And all that is therein forbidden, may be included under the two following heads:

1. Unchastity of the mind.

2. Unchastity of the conduct.

By unchastity of the mind, is meant the conception of unchastity in the mind, the cherishing of impure desire. All sin has its seat in the mind. The seventh commandment, like every other, extends to "thoughts, and intents of the heart." "This," says Dwight, "is unanswerable evident from our Saviour's comment on this precept (the seventh commandment), 'Whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her, hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.' " Matt.5:28. And with this agrees another scripture, which says, "Out of the heart proceedeth . . . adulteries."

By unchastity of the conduct, we are to understand the acting out of unchastity in any of its various ways of developing sinful thoughts, as,

1. By unchaste conversation, writing, looks, and gestures. "Speech is the mirror of the soul." And hence it is that "by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned." Matt. 12:37. But significant looks, writing, gestures etc., being but substitutes for words and the tongue, are, like them, capable of being made the ministers of sin; hence, also, they must be subject to the same general law.[72]

Even mere excess in that which would otherwise be clean is a sin.

Even men and women professing godliness give loose rein to their lustful passions, and have no thought that God holds them accountable for the expenditure of vital energy, which weakens their hold on life and enervates the entire system. {TSB 110.3}

The animal passions, cherished and indulged, become very strong in this age, and untold evils in the marriage life are the sure results. In the place of the mind being developed and having the controlling power, the animal propensities rule over the higher and nobler powers until they are brought into subjection to the animal propensities. What is the result? Women’s delicate organs are worn out and become diseased; childbearing is no more safe; sexual privileges are abused. Men are corrupting their own bodies, and the wife has become a bed servant to their inordinate, base lusts, until there is no fear of God before their eyes. To indulge impulse that degrades both body and soul is the order of the marriage life, and what is the sure result? The most terrible, painful diseases are brought upon women, and the curse of God rests upon men and women in loathsome diseases that need not be at all... {4MR 378.2}

When you understand that the “animal” in “animal passions” and the “beast” in “the mark of the beast” are two different words for the same thing, it makes one shudder for how many professed Christians who indulge in sexual excess have already received their judgment.

What shall arouse those who claim to be walking in the light that is shining upon the people of God in these last days? A lethargy of unconscious sensualism through indulgence of perverted appetite, a constant submitting of soul and body and spirit to moral defilement, is upon the people. Under the marriage vow, which our Creator has instituted, appetite has been perverted and indulged. And these lustful appetites, with their destroying power, has been transmitted from parents to children, and so intensified that their names are recorded in the books of heaven as transgressors of God’s law. Upon their very countenances is imparted the sin of Sodom [the mark of the beast on the forehead]. And continuance in these sins will bring the sure and terrible results. They will suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy. They will receive the sentence, ‘He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still…’ {GCDB March 2, 1897, par. 12}

Returning to the letter from CBMW, which tries to ascertain the causes of the moral degradation we see today, they probe at the heart of a virtually ubiquitous sin that plagues even the most “conservative” families and churches:

Among the myriads of other tributaries we could trace out is the way the church and the world seemed to accept unquestioningly the modern premise that men and women are interchangeable with respect to roles in the home and the church. This functional interchangeability opened the doors to the ontological interchangeability that is so widespread today. If there truly is no meaningful difference between male headship and female headship in the home and the church, then it follows naturally that men and women are interchangeable not only functionally—a woman can do anything a man can do, period—but also ontologically—a woman can be anything a man can be, period. Under such reasoning, the difference between the man who chooses to marry a man and the man who chooses to marry a woman is arbitrary, subjective, and negligible. What is more, if a woman can be anything a man can be, why can’t she be a man as well?

They rightly draw a direct line from the women’s equality movement to LGBT tolerance. In other words, they correctly say that women leading in homes and churches led to opening the floodgates of immorality. Their description of the “roaring flood” of present confusion around marriage calls to mind the words of the Spirit of Prophecy:

Prevalence of Immorality Today—A terrible picture of the condition of the world has been presented before me. Immorality abounds everywhere. Licentiousness is the special sin of this age. Never did vice lift its deformed head with such boldness as now. The people seem to be benumbed, and the lovers of virtue and true goodness are nearly discouraged by its boldness, strength, and prevalence. The iniquity which abounds is not merely confined to the unbeliever and the scoffer. Would that this were the case, but it is not. Many men and women who profess the religion of Christ are guilty. Even some who profess to be looking for His appearing are no more prepared for that event than Satan himself. They are not cleansing themselves from all pollution. They have so long served their lust that it is natural for their thoughts to be impure and their imaginations corrupt. It is as impossible to cause their minds to dwell upon pure and holy things as it would be to turn the course of Niagara and send its waters pouring up the falls.... Every Christian will have to learn to restrain his passions and be controlled by principle. Unless he does this, he is unworthy of the Christian name. {AH 328.1}

God is not mocked. When His laws are broken, the consequences fall, and the present state of things is impossible to reverse. That is the definition of the close of probation! The Sunday Law could be prayed away,[73] but the Sodomy Law will slay. That is why the call is no longer to reform the churches, but to “Come out of her, My people!”

It is the United States who uses its clout as a world heavyweight to push same-sex marriage and LGBT rights. And everywhere it goes, the way is first prepared through the women’s rights movement, which says that a woman can do or be anything a man can—including be the head of the man. According to the Scriptures, woman headship is blasphemy:

But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. (1 Corinthians 11:3)

This does not mean a woman can’t lead anything, but simply that she needs to be under the higher authority of a man, so long as this world is still under the curse of sin! She should not be in a position of absolute authority, having “the last word,” whether in the home or church or any other context. The Bible makes the principle clear on two counts:

For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. (1 Timothy 2:13-14)

This does not mean women are lower or less valuable or any other such nonsense; God simply established the precedent at creation by creating man first and including in him, all the genetic material of woman. The man has seniority in the creation account, and that precedent endures as long as marriage itself, which was made “very good” and sealed as a job well done[74] to stand even to the end of this sin-ravaged world. It is the law of God—the law of Time—that places the man in the headship role.

And an unenviable responsibility therefore devolves upon the man, to love like Christ loved[75]—by rebuking the ones He loves when they err, and taking the cost—whatever the cost—upon Himself. Adam’s sin was to indulge Eve because he couldn’t live without her. How many men indulge their wife for the same reason? How many men let their wife have the last word, just so they can have the last sex? It’s not much different than Trump offering Stormy Daniels sweet opportunities in exchange for her services—and thus the world is plagued by a sick portrayal of male headship. Having a big head isn’t headship.

Hopefully it is now clear how deep the roots of apostasy run. The first plague on the second beast of Revelation 13 is largely due to all its Christian denominations having widely strayed from God’s law in failing to uphold God’s order in marriage in the home and in society. As a result, the United States (and many other countries) have passed the point of no return on the road to LGBTIAQ self-destruction.

Time Is Up

Time is up. The key events in the scandalous saga of our day correspond perfectly to the dates prophesied by the plague clock and the heavenly signs of the sixth trumpet:

The events followed the heavenly signs:

  • July 27, 2018 – The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled to release grand jury’s child sex abuse report.

  • August 14, 2018 – The Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office publishes the sex-abuse scandal report.

  • August 20, 2018 – The Vatican published Pope Francis’ letter admitting to deep and incurable wounds.
    August 21, 2018 – Michael Cohen’s guilty plea, implicating and deeply wounding President Trump.
    August 22, 2018 – Archbishop Viganò’s testimony implicates Pope Francis in the scandal directly.

These events correspond perfectly to the dates prophesied by the plague clock and the heavenly signs of the sixth trumpet:

  • July 27, 2018 – Blood Moon in conjunction with Mars in Capricornus.

  • August 14, 2018 – Conjunction of the moon and Venus in Virgo.

  • August 20, 2018 – Great and marvelous sign of the seven last plagues, with Cancer as the first plague.

Through all the heavenly signs, and in all the quoted Scriptures, you have seen that these incurable noisome and grievous sores that have suddenly afflicted the world and caused the heads of the first and second beast powers (the papacy and the US, respectively) to stink, are accurately described in the Bible as the first plague, which is said to fall upon exactly those who have the mark of the beast (same-sex marriage) or worship his image (LGBT tolerance). The first plague is definitely about the great and heinous offense of the legalized abuse of human sexuality that has escaped the bounds of the Church’s secrecy and broken all limits of conscience, even toward the young.

In addition to the overwhelmingly accurate fulfilment of the first plague verse, Revelation 16:2, the heavenly signs have been shown to have a meaning that speaks powerfully to the circumstances. Through the drama enacted in the heavens by the sun, moon, and stars, we saw the seven angels come out of the heavenly tabernacle and distribute the plagues. As that was happening in heaven, especially with the destroyer, Venus, in the head of the woman Virgo on August 14, 2018, the Pennsylvania Grand Jury report was released against the child sex abuse in the Catholic Church on the earth. The great and marvelous sign indicated the nature of the moral problems, which grow silently, spread, and destroy like an incurable cancer, the disease symbolized by the constellation of the same name as the first plague to be poured out.

Even as late as the fifth plague, these painful sores are still mentioned, along with the indication that there will still have been no repentance, so do what you can for yourself, your loved ones, and those around you by paying attention to the voice from heaven that is calling everyone everywhere to come out and be separate. Give you and your loved ones a clear conscience by making a clean break with those who will not repent. Contrary to what Pope Francis would have you think, there is no salvation in a church body that is full of cancer, from the head on down.

We are standing in front of the forced resignations or annulment of the office of arguably the two most powerful leaders in the world, for crimes repugnantly base. One might ask themselves: Who would fill their places? Some even speak of Trump’s impeachment in the very terms of the “chalice of poison.” Keep in mind it is the planet Mercury that was ruling in Cancer in the great and marvelous sign of the seven last plagues, and that the planet Mercury is associated with the element mercury, which shares its name. Elemental mercury is a poison responsible for the following conditions, which are uncannily descriptive of the troubles facing both the first and the second beast today:

Mercury poisoning is a type of metal poisoning due to mercury exposure. Symptoms depend upon the type, dose, method, and duration of exposure. They may include muscle weakness, poor coordination, numbness in the hands and feet, skin rashes, anxiety, memory problems, trouble speaking, trouble hearing, or trouble seeing.

Is not the church filled with anxiety over the mounting scandals? Is not the world increasingly anxious over what Trump might do in his distorted reality? There are problems remembering the atrocities of the past in both religious and political history. The Church has forgotten how far it is possible to deviate from God while maintaining a self-perception of holiness, while the State suffers terribly from forgetting former eras of dictatorships under which great sins were tolerated till the cry of wrong summoned the whole world to war.

It is clear that Pope Francis suffers from trouble speaking, when reporters ask point-blank about his culpability and he cannot answer a word. And trouble hearing? How long has the cry of the abused been falling on his ear—and on the Church’s ear, more generally—without due attention being given to the cause? How long has the church been turning a blind eye to the sex abuse problem? How long have the citizens of America been benumbed to the systematic removal of their genuine liberties, forced instead to tolerate abomination? It is abundantly clear that the world is indeed suffering the effects of this symbolic mercury poisoning, and will soon be driven completely stark raving mad.

Trump is facing trouble on virtually all fronts—the situation with North Korea is terrible, the economic war with China is escalating, Syria is fraught with danger, the strait of Hormuz is threatened, tensions with Russia are on the rise, and the list goes on and on, all while his very presidency is itself being called into question. When you see how the currencies are falling in emerging countries, all the signs are there—Babylon is fallen!

But things will only get worse. Please, listen to the voice that speaks to you from heaven, and follow the call to “Come out,” if by any means you might escape the fate of the wicked.

And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. (Luke 21:28)

Lift up your heads and listen to the voice of God from the heavens.

It is unspeakably sad that so many Christians are now daily afflicted by the sores and stink of the scandals of their leaders. But it need not be so! Jesus, who never deserved guilt, suffered the worst possible separation from God to empower you to take the necessary steps to separate yourself from sin. You don’t need to identify with sex abusers any more, or feel the shame and guilt of their unspeakably horrible deeds. You don’t need to feel the shame of Trump’s clumsy narcissism anymore. Just humble yourself and take a new stand. Make an official break with your past alliances. You can choose to resign, cancel your membership, or whatever it takes to make a clean separation from those who refuse to do so.

But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. (Matthew 18:6-11)

Are you afraid of loneliness? Jesus was lonely, cast your lot with Him! Are you afraid to be ridiculed? Jesus was ridiculed; He understands. Are you afraid to risk ruining your good life by taking a bold stand? Jesus didn’t even have a pillow to rest His head on. Time is too short to worry about those things, but eternity awaits only those who are willing to sacrifice the finite things of this world.

Get back up on your feet, and stand tall on the moral Rock of God’s Word. Show your faith by your works, like James.[76] Join the ranks of God’s army by sharing this article series to decry the sins of Babylon and call everyone everywhere to “Come out of her!” That is how you can personally shine the light on the perpetrators and require restitution for their sins, which have reached unto heaven.

Hebrews 8:5 – [Priests] serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things [the heavenly sanctuary], as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount. 
7.
Hebrews 8:1-2 – Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.

Daniel 7:13 – I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days [a movement in heaven], and they brought him near before him. 
9.
This refers to the heavenly antitype of the Jews’ Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), when the high priest went in to minister at the mercy seat. See Daniel 7:9-10 – I beheld till the thrones were cast down [set up], and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire [a reference to the Orion clock]. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.

As described in the Orion Presentation, God marked sins of the Adventist Church in Orion to show where corporate repentance was necessary. 
13.
It was the Adventist movement that finally came 100% back to the truth from the terrible decline into apostasy of the Christian era when they embraced the controversial seventh-day Sabbath commandment. Before then, the proceedings of the Judgment could not continue, because God’s people did not even have His law! But with the Sabbath and the prophetic understanding about the heavenly sanctuary and the judgment, they fulfilled the description of the remnant of the woman’s seed, “which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” (Revelation 12:17)

This is explained in The Books are Closed

That is, those who did not believe that Jesus entered the Holiest in the heavenly sanctuary in 1844. 
16.
They would not hear His call to repentance in the Orion Message and to give the loud cry
17.
They are the believing remnant of Adventism who came from the believing remnant of Christianity, who came from the believing remnant of Judaism.

Matthew 10:34-36 – Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

That which Peter said of David applies to Mary and every other church-declared saint: Acts 2:29,34 – Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. … For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, 
27.
Exodus 34:5-6 – And the Lord descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the Lord. And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth… [Thus, His name is described by character traits (which continue in the next verse).] 
28.
Malachi 3:8 – Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. 
29.
Given the setting of this commandment between two commandments about the closest family relations (our parents, who brought us into their family and our spouse, with whom we create a family), a strong message is given about God’s position on abortion, representing the other category of close family member (our offspring, whom we bring into our own family). 
30.
Romans 1:26-27 – For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. [Addressed to the Romans, especially, due to the prevalence of sodomy there!]

Even this conviction, however, was questionably handled. He was released twice through a series of appeals, overturned rulings, and house arrest. See National Catholic Reporter - Pennsylvania high court denies appeal, Msgr. Lynn set for second prison exit

This association is clear when you consider the ancient names associated with the constellation and its stars. From Genesis Science Research – The brightest star is Acubene which is related to the Hebrew word for “hiding place.” This picture is reinforced by the Praesepe [today, Beehive] cluster. The word comes from Latin, means "a crib, a manger, a hive, or a fold for animals."

During a lunar eclipse, the moon is full, which is when it stands exactly 180 degrees opposite the sun.

For example, the moon was clearly described as a “lamp” in the third trumpet, which is a type of oil vessel. This is explained in Signposts to Eden

The “love” mentioned here is clearly not the selfless agape love of Christ that the Bible teaches us to emulate, but the sensual, predominantly homosexual lust rampant throughout the priestly system. This false “love” of the “love wins” slogan is the characteristic mark of the false Christ, who is none other than Satan himself

The idea of crying out to heaven is also used in another passage speaking of a city of unrepentant enemies of God’s people, who had been plagued with death and hemorrhoids for “kidnapping” the ark of God’s covenant. See 1 Samuel 5:11-12 – So they sent and gathered together all the lords of the Philistines, and said, Send away the ark of the God of Israel, and let it go again to his own place, that it slay us not, and our people: for there was a deadly destruction throughout all the city; the hand of God was very heavy there. And the men that died not were smitten with the emerods [hemorrhoids]: and the cry of the city went up to heaven.

This is part of a statement on sexuality that was approved and voted by the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists Executive Committee at the Annual Council session in Washington, D.C., October 12, 1987.

Not only are sexual perversions unclean spiritually, but many are also unclean physically, resulting in the spread of diseases in addition to the abuse of the body’s vital power.

The national Sunday law crisis in the U.S. in the late 1880’s and early 1890’s was indeed averted, not only by prayer but by diligent effort and sound arguments laid before Congress. It has never again become an issue as great as it was then.
