The Coming of Christ

 

Is Jesus really coming back? How can a person be sure? Jesus said “when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.”[1] We can know that the coming of Jesus is here when all the prophecies—especially those in the book of Revelation, which is the revelation of His coming—are understood and happening.

This article will tackle the most challenging end-time prophecies in the Bible that must necessarily be fulfilled before Jesus comes. Most notably among these is the prophecy of the two witnesses in Revelation 11, which is designated as the “second woe” that comes shortly before the third and last woe that brings Christ and gives birth to His eternal Kingdom. This is one of the great prophecies of Revelation that has never been fully deciphered in the context of the days we live in. Do you yearn to understand the prophecies that Jesus gave to guide us until the end? Deception is prevalent, so we must have a solid foundation upon which to stand proving all things and holding fast to what is true.

To claim God’s promises is the privilege of those who know Him, and He is known through His Word. Thus, like in no other time in history, we must now strive with all our might to lay hold of His Word and know the certainty of the things that are written therein.[2] If not, time and opportunity will pass.

Let every one who claims to believe that the Lord is soon coming, search the Scriptures as never before; for Satan is determined to try every device possible to keep souls in darkness, and blind the mind to the perils of the times in which we are living. Let every believer take up his Bible with earnest prayer, that he may be enlightened by the holy Spirit as to what is truth, that he may know more of God and of Jesus Christ whom he has sent. Search for the truth as for hidden treasures, and disappoint the enemy. The time of test is just upon us, for the loud cry of the third angel has already begun in the revelation of the righteousness of Christ, the sin-pardoning Redeemer. This is the beginning of the light of the angel whose glory shall fill the whole earth. For it is the work of every one to whom the message of warning has come, to lift up Jesus, to present him to the world as revealed in types, as shadowed in symbols, as manifested in the revelations of the prophets, as unveiled in the lessons given to his disciples and in the wonderful miracles wrought for the sons of men. Search the Scriptures; for they are they that testify of him. {RH November 22, 1892, par. 7}

The Bible indicates that in a certain timeframe, there shall be no more divine mysteries shrouding the messages of all the prophets of the Bible.

But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets. (Revelation 10:7)

A mystery is finished when it is understood, and this means that what has been “declared to the prophets” must be made plain. The meaning of all the prophecies must be brought to their proper light, especially the prophecies of the book of Revelation which were not previously understood, being that they pertain particularly to the last days. It was the promise of restoration from sin that was the burden of all the prophets, ever since the Lord Himself spoke to the serpent in Eden and continuing all the way down through the ages till the great consummation.

Timeframes of the seventh trumpets The finishing of the mystery is prophesied to happen in the time of the seventh trumpet “when he is about to sound.” Note that there is leeway in how the timing of this verse can be understood: the finishing of the mystery is definitively connected to the seventh trumpet, but there are “days” when the angel is about to sound when the act of finishing begins, and the finishing is also an action that can take a process of time in itself. Therefore, one should not assume that everything is said and done until the seventh trumpet has passed.

The two periods of the seventh trumpet have been laid out in the closing cycle of the Orion clock in two segments, corresponding to the two trumpet cycles—forward and backward.[3] This means that nothing should be left unsolved in the mystery of God once the throne lines of September 3–6, 2020 have arrived. Of course, God’s Word can always be mined for more and more truth—a work that will be the delight of the redeemed throughout eternity—but there should be no stones unturned and no verses unexplained as to the mystery of when the kingdom of God will come. If there were verses left undeciphered, then the lacking understanding could be an indicator that the coming of Jesus would once again be later than expected. Therefore, the quote above from the Review and Herald is so pertinent!

Every effort must be made to understand the prophecies, and this is by design because in so doing, the student of the Word gets to know Him, and the character of the pupil is formed into the likeness of his Master. This work is the burden of this article, but as this writing precedes some of the events of which it speaks, it is inevitable that those who read it afterward will find aspects of it that could be more clearly understood in the light of their own experience. It is the hope and prayer of the publishers that this effort will not be neglected.

How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; (Hebrews 2:3)

Yet, there is also danger in the zeal to improve upon what has gone before. The sure foundations must not be undermined. The experience of those who come after must be built upon what has gone before. This has been the continual example of the work of the Holy Spirit through the publishers, whose older materials still speak powerfully to the present. Nevertheless, the unfolding future informs the past and sets all things into the correct perspective, and through it all, the leading of God is beyond reproach. To Him is due all glory, honor, and praise, and thanksgiving.

Trumpets vs. Woes

God gives warnings to be understood, and the trumpets of Revelation are such warnings that needed to happen and be understood before the arrival of the full consequences, in order for His people to respond and repent before it’s too late. One of the easiest mistakes to make in studying the trumpets is to equate the three woes with the last three trumpets. Although they are intrinsically connected, experience and the Bible itself has taught that they are separate prophecies.

And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound! (Revelation 8:13)

The three woes, introduced in the fourth trumpet prophecy, are said to be “by reason of” or “because of” or as a result of the three remaining trumpet voices. A result necessarily comes after the cause, and therefore the woes cannot be fulfilled at the same time as their respective trumpets, although they are directly related.

The fifth trumpet, which warns of the first woe, gives a helpful indication for understanding the relationship, because it mentions a specific period of time to watch out for:

And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. (Revelation 9:1–5)

This warning trumpet sounded promptly on the eve of December 5, 2017, as described in The Fifth Trumpet, Loud and Clear! The five months were soon understood as being the period of Donald Trump’s most important trade war actions against China[4] (the fruit of which can be seen in the fulfillment of prophecy today, which we will come to later).

But this was comfortably within the timeframe of the trumpet itself, and thus it was only part of the warning of what was to come as a result of the trumpet—something much worse and more “woeful” in the time of the plagues. The text goes on:

And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter. (Revelation 9:6–12)

Again, it is tempting to make the mistake of lumping these verses together with the ones before, but there is a separate five-month period in this latter half of the prophecy, which indicates a separate period from the warning trumpet. This means that while talking about the same theme, a progression is described. In “those days” (i.e. of the trouble that the trumpet warned of) people would seek death. In other words, when you see people seeking death, then you know that the “woe” has come.

Many reports started indicating this about five months into the coronavirus crisis:

Washington Post, May 4, 2020 – The coronavirus pandemic is pushing America into a mental health crisis

The New York Times, May 19, 2020 – Is the Pandemic Sparking Suicide?

The first five months of the fifth trumpet In the case of the fifth trumpet itself, no other segment of the clock spanned five months; the segment from Betelgeuse to the throne lines (from December 5, 2017 to June 3, 2018) could contain a five-month span, whereas all the other trumpet periods were shorter than five months. This gave additional evidence for the prophecy’s applicability within exactly that period of time. In a similar way, the five-month period that is associated with “seeking death” is also indicated on the clock.

It is always somewhat easier to see how prophecy fulfilled by looking back at what actually happened, weighing the events in light of the prophecy to understand what the Bible referred to with its symbolism. For this to be successful, however, one must already have an idea of what to expect, and that comes from studying the prophecies before they are fulfilled. One must build upon the existing foundation, refining the complete picture as the passage of time tests every new finding.

God intended the Revelation to be understood in the context of the heavens, and particularly in tandem with the heavenly clocks.[5] Although the plague cycles are running on a shorter timescale than the trumpet cycle, a five-month period is also marked out in them. To find it, one only needs to ask, when did the world really start to feel anything that could qualify as a woe? Clearly, the coronavirus crisis has touched virtually everyone in some way, and for many, it has indeed brought woe.

Timeframe of the first woe Thus, it is not hard to find the five months from the beginning of the coronavirus crisis to the emergence of the suicide concern—from the throne lines of December 19–22, 2019 to the Bellatrix point of May 20, 2020. This marks the first five months (or first wave) of the coronavirus crisis from the beginning of the first known case until suicides became a widely recognized consequence.

And it must not be overlooked that it was in this timeframe that the Trump administration, together with Netanyahu, started the next great controversial phase concerning the peace plan and Israel’s annexation of more land, which provoked global reactions and led to the total dissolution of all agreements between Palestine and Israel at the end of precisely that timeframe, on May 20, 2020.[6] No further comment is needed to emphasize how significant this is with regard to the instability of the Middle East, which edges the world closer and closer to the brink of a nuclear conflagration.

Thus, the first woe has finally been identified. The warning themes keep building and yet “the plot thickens” as the coronavirus crisis itself mobilizes a new army in a new form of warfare. Is this the end of the story, just because the first woe has fulfilled? Or will the birth pangs of Christ’s return intensify until the “birth” has actually taken place?

The hour beginnings One could certainly also associate the description of the faces of the “men” and “women” with “stings” of the prophecy with doctors and nurses with syringes—acting under the absolute authority of the “crown” (or coronavirus). Seeing the placement of the first woe on the clock paints an ominous foreboding of what is to come in the hour of temptation, which appears set to begin with vaccination in September—at the same point on the clock, one cycle later. How will the people of God navigate that time? Will they climb to the higher ground explained in the previous article? Or will they be led astray by the false teaching that the coronavirus vaccine itself is the mark of the beast, and thus fall into the trap that has been laid to cause them to break the law of God in their misdirected zeal? The vaccination effort is indeed designed to lead people back from lockdown and into the churches and society where the mark of the beast lurks, and therefore the Lord is calling His people to come OUT of the churches and stand separate.

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. (Revelation18:4)

The world is calling people back INTO the churches, pressuring the population to receive a vaccine in order to get back to “normal” without jeopardizing public safety. But that is not the voice of the Lord! The true vaccine or antidote to sin is the sacrificial character of Jesus Christ that is to be demonstrated by the 144,000. It is the willingness to sacrifice for others, desiring and working in faith for the salvation of souls, irrespective of the personal inconveniences to one’s self.

Is there any question about who pulls the strings of the churches today? If even nations are compelled to follow the worldly LGBT tolerance and same-sex marriage agenda, can the churches escape? Note:

July 31, 2020 – Six ‘LGBTI-free’ Polish cities left out of EU funding

The article states:

The European Commission has rejected grants under a twinning programme for six Polish cities which declared their communities “free” from lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex communities (LGBTI).

When the world is collapsing into the arms of the government to receive bailout money, the government uses that financial dependence to wield control. Churches are in the same sinking boat:

July 14, 2020 – Adventist organizations receive millions in federal paycheck protection loans despite religious liberty concerns[7]

So, if you pay tithes or offerings or otherwise support a state-sponsored church, you become partaker of her sins! You condone her tolerance of the abominations that God will answer as He answered Sodom and Gomorrah! “Come out of her, My people” is the Lord’s call!

There are many ways not to forsake the assembly,[8] such as small home churches like in apostolic times or on-line gatherings to study God’s Word together while giving honor to His name. It is not necessary to use carnal weapons to fight a losing battle against the state to maintain the gathering in church buildings that God has disapproved by allowing the coronavirus crisis to reshape the way the church connects.

In fact, an Associated Press/NORC survey found that 63 percent of all religious Americans believe that this pandemic is “a sign from God”...[9]

If you believe that, then try to understand that the answer is not to force open the door that God has shut! The urge to fight back with physical weapons or defend one’s self (or one’s right to congregate) is not the call of the Lord! But even when insurmountable trouble seems to be upon you, the Lord understands and warns that it should not be unexpected.

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)

Jesus overcame the world the same way we must overcome it, because He came as our example. Jesus overcame this world with His death on the cross, and we must also take up our cross if we are to follow Him.

He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. (Revelation 21:7)

Man’s law may be unjust and may even impose death upon those who do not deserve it, but the people of God are called by the example of their Savior to uphold His law and behave with nonviolence and benevolence no matter what the personal cost might be—even to the point of death. A knight or solider defends the honor of his King—ready at any time to lay down his life in defense of his Lord.

But a soldier must definitely know who his enemy is, and therefore the study of God’s law is urged, to know what is truly against it and understand what the mark of the beast is. The world wants you to accept same-sex marriage and “tolerate” various forms of abomination that are contrary to His law, but in so doing, one betrays the Lord! That is what Satan wants—he does not care how one of God’s children falls, but that one falls, because in so doing, he causes harm to God.

These are the matters that the trumpets of Revelation are warning of—matters of eternal life or death for yourself and others. Your decisions in these matters will have consequences throughout eternity. Therefore, it is so important to study God’s Word to understand His will and know His intentions, which are not difficult to see when your heart is in the right place.

One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter. (Revelation 9:12)

The Two Witnesses

The prophecy of the two witnesses in Revelation 11 is rich with symbolism, time periods, and allusions to other parts of Scripture that make it easy to understand many of the symbols in it, yet at the same time extremely difficult to find the cohesive setting in which the entire prophecy finds its ultimate fulfillment. It is embedded within the sixth trumpet, yet it stands as a prophecy of its own which ends as the second woe.

The previous article covered the fulfillment of the core part of the sixth trumpet and explained how the hour, day, month, and year in the preparatory phase served to illustrate how and when the prophecy would ultimately fulfill in the present phase in light of the Carmel Challenge. In addition to the trumpet cycle of the Orion clock, three additional clock cycles were involved: the plague cycle, the thunder cycle, and the closing cycle. These three roughly correspond to the entire fulfillment of the text of the sixth trumpet, which spans across three chapters, as follows:

  • The plague cycle: Revelation 9:13–21, because the trumpet warns of the corresponding plague,

  • The thunder cycle: Revelation 10, because this is where the seven thunders are described,

  • The closing cycle: Revelation 11:1–14, because the two witnesses are the main subject of the sign of the ark of the covenant on display during the top half of this clock cycle.

In that way, the entire text of the sixth trumpet and associated second woe—including the interlude—is accounted for. The many layers of meaning of the trumpet warning itself have been detailed in various articles in the past, and the symbolism of chapter 10 has also been explained previously, especially in the series entitled The Mystery Finished. Many aspects of the two witnesses, on the other hand, have been interpreted,[10] but a single conclusive fulfillment has remained elusive. Can we solve it now?

One of the reasons for the difficulty in understanding the two witnesses is the fact that it represents the pinnacle of the Revelation, just as the symbolism of the transfiguration and the scene of the ark of the covenant represent the highest summit of the Kingdom of God. Thus, until reaching that point, any interpretation must inevitably fall short.

Brother John explained in Time No Longer how the daily rations[11]—which are connected to the prophecy timeframes of the two witnesses—point (generally) to the right throne lines of April 27–29, 2020.

And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. (Revelation 11:3)

In a nutshell, besides the 51 days of portions from the spring feasts that were used in the emergency time from Jesus’ death till Pentecost,[12] there were 1260 days from Ezekiel[13] plus (a tentative) 372 days from the autumn feasts, together used to cover the emergency time of the “prophesying” of the LastCoundown.org website from May 6, 2012 when its prophecy period began with the Final Warning series of articles, till the website’s conclusion with the prophesied the October 23, 2016 coming of Jesus. This was the “Plan A” that we have referred to many times,[14] including in the previous article. However, when the workers who should have distributed the provisions failed to appear and the need for “Plan B” arose, the plagues that would have come dissipated and the 372 days of portions for the time of emergency were not needed.

The provisions of the two witnesses

Thus were remaining 1260 days (for the prophecy period of the second witness) plus the 372 days that were not yet used. The former apply to the period of the second website, WhiteCloudFarm.org, which had its grand opening on November 22, 2016 and was thus allotted 1260 days until sunset on May 4, 2020, shortly after the April 27–29 throne lines.

In retrospect, the publishing team can only give glory to God that after a difficult series of setbacks in the closing publications, the final four-part article series of the four authors could be completed just in time. Looking at the publication dates, one can see that The Final Harvest was published in three languages across May 2–3, with just one day to spare. And as the portions were ending, the authors truly felt as if their daily strength had been exhausted. This is to say that the job of the two witnesses prophesying “in sackcloth” was completed exactly on schedule according to the allotted provisions, by the grace of God and with His mercy and help.

Thus, both websites are in a certain sense represented by the two witnesses and serve as the source of spiritual wisdom (olive trees) and lamps (two candlesticks) to lighten the path of God’s people in these last days.

These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. (Revelation 11:4)

For a more comprehensive survey of the symbolism of the two witnesses, one can refer to The Oil in the Lamps of the Wise. At this point, it has been shown that the publications of the two websites were the means through which the prophecy timeframes of the two witnesses were fulfilled, and the burden of the warnings and prophecies of these websites is well described in the prophecy, which clearly alludes to Elijah’s experience:

And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth [i.e. the Carmel Challenge], and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy [another reference to Elijah]: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will [in the plague cycles]. (Revelation 11:5–6)

As the last article series was finished, however, the publishing team experienced a certain relief for the completed work. Although they did not know it at that time, another strengthening had already begun as prophecy was beginning to fulfill in an unexpected way—but it was not from the portions of the 372 days, which Brother John already earmarked in Time No Longer.

Therefore, the team went right back to work publishing Harvest News to chronicle how the prophecies were fulfilling in light of the testimony they had just finished.

And when they shall have [about] finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. (Revelation 11:7)

The Forgotten Memorial laid the foundation for understanding the above verse, which was subsequently explained in My Grace is Sufficient. Those short news articles draw attention to the kind of sacrifice that is pleasing to God and show how that quality of sacrifice was suddenly nowhere to be seen on the world stage when George Floyd breathed his last. That the two witnesses had died was made evident through the comparison of current events with the churches of Smyrna and Philadelphia, which were also connected to the great earthquake that reverberated around the world—especially in former slave-trading nations—because of the incident, which occurred on May 25, 2020, the anniversary of Christ’s crucifixion.[15]

However, this was only a snapshot of a greater scene involving the two witnesses that was beginning to dawn. When living the fulfillment of prophecy, it is often difficult to see the forest for the trees, but soon it became apparent that the treasures of the lost ark had been found and that the drama of the two witnesses was unfolding—after their prophesying—in the great heavenly sign of the two covering cherubim (which are also the two witnesses standing before God[16]).

The sign of the ark of the covenant begins with its two carrying poles, represented by the throne lines of April 27 and 29, 2020. This was just before the completion of the last article in the Coronageddon series and the end of the two witnesses’ prophecy timeframe. Thus, it is perfectly correct to say that the drama of their death, resurrection, and ascension began when they were about to finish their testimony.

The entire sign of the ark of the covenant portrays the remaining verses, which have become—directly or indirectly—the subject of this present article series. It was through this heavenly sign that the fourth plague cycle of the Orion clock (the victory cycle) was discovered, and thus the ark of the covenant tangibly provided the “spiritual food” for this present series. That is how the manna hidden in the ark became a three-course meal, above and beyond the 1260 portions for the two witnesses.

In the Revelation, God speaks through both heavenly and earthly symbols, intertwining the events on the earth with events in heaven in a way that can only be understood by those who know His voice. God wants to have a relationship with His people, and therefore He speaks in that way. He also incorporates heavenly signs into His language to add authority and a second witness to His messages:

See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. (Hebrews 12:25–26)

The story of the two witnesses, therefore, also begins to unfold in heaven promptly on April 27, 2020, with the moon on the galactic equator (or in Orion’s hand depending on the exact hour) on the first throne line date that marks the beginning of the sign of the ark of the covenant.

The heavens when the ark of the covenant sign begins

Two months from this date, the moon would eclipse the sun at this very point; thus, one can see a story beginning, which already spans two months and two constellations (just to reach the center point of the sign of the ark of the covenant).

The very next day after the picture above (right between the throne line dates), Mercury enters the constellation of Aries (the ram) on its way to the sun, which it goes behind on May 4—the end of the sackcloth-clad prophecy timeframe of the two witnesses.

Putting off the sackcloth Thus, the publishing team of the two witnesses seemed to be entering a phase of vindication that would remove their figurative sackcloth. In this sense, on May 4, 2020, both Aries (representing Jesus as the first witness) and Mercury (representing the second witness) were “clothed with the sun” as an indication that the days of their sackcloth had ended and a glorification was soon to take place—but not before their “death” would be seen by the world.

The Second Woe

The prophecy not only indicates the end of their prophesying in sackcloth but also that as they are finishing, the beast would be overcoming them. This happened as explained previously and in the aforementioned articles beginning with The Forgotten Memorial, in the timeframe when the sun is activating the two great constellations of sacrifice that are named in the prophecy:

And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. (Revelation 11:8)

In the context of the heavens, the street of the great city in this verse is the ecliptic, specifically that part which is associated with Sodom and Egypt. Taurus (activated in June) is the “LGBT month” of Sodom, while Aries has been associated with Egypt and its god Amun since antiquity.[17]

This “street” was also “where our Lord was crucified,” which is shown by the fact that on the eve of the anniversary of the crucifixion of Jesus, right in the middle of these two months, the sun touched the horn of the altar of Taurus in remembrance of the Sacrifice that was made for all humanity.

The horn of the altar

The evening portrayed in the picture above also corresponds to the approximate time when the first crescent moon was sighted for the new month, making the crucifixion anniversary of May 25, 2020 also a new moon day. This caught the WhiteCloudFarm publishing team by surprise because in their preliminary calculations, they estimated that the new moon could have been visible a day earlier in their location, and if so, the new moon day would have been May 23/24 instead of May 24/25. However, the moon was NOT possible to sight that day, and more importantly, this error prevented the Final Harvest article from conveying the appropriate message of Christ’s sacrifice that would have accompanied this position on the Mazzaroth clock, had it been recognized.[18]

The overlooking of a coincidence of such significance was truly a defeat and shows just how the enemy overcame the two witnesses—not just in the general terms of the spirit of Philadelphia and Smyrna, but in the publishing work of the two witnesses directly. This defeat actually began in the handling of setbacks associated with the writing of the article, which manifested in the lateness of its publication, which was originally due in time for the throne lines. Therefore, in a sense more directly connected to the second of the two witnesses, their death actually pertains more to the timeframe of the closing of the seventh trumpet from April 27 to May 20, 2020 than to the more publicly visible period following George Floyd’s death as written in The Forgotten Memorial and My Grace is Sufficient.

But while the sacrifice of Jesus was far from all minds, the world rose up to recognize (and demand recognition for) the “sacrifice” of their “Barabbas,” a leader of sedition postmortem. So, here in these two constellations, the two witnesses are said to have been overcome and their bodies lie dead, and so it was, exactly according to the heavenly situation.

This time of the anniversary of the Passion Week—when the two witnesses died in full view of the world—is when the “pain” was felt. This marks the beginning of the second woe, just after the five months of the first woe had ended on May 20, 2020 as described earlier. As with the first woe, the second woe came at a point in time after its corresponding trumpet, still in its strict sequence following the first woe.[19]

Timeframe of the second woe Now the second woe can easily be placed, knowing that the drama of the two witnesses corresponds to the sign of the ark of the covenant, and thus the woe should end at the left throne lines of September 3–6, 2020.

Recognizing the entire timeframe allows us to paint the parts of the story in a broader setting. It is often tempting to imagine many prophecies fulfilling at the same time, but as the time draws closer, it is seen that every verse and often every phrase of a prophecy has an element of time associated with it. What is expressed compactly in prophetic symbolism often turns out to be a story that unfolds over many days.

After the two witnesses were overcome and were lying in the street, the Bible says they were “seen.”

And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. (Revelation 11:9)

Note that the wording does not require that they were seen from the beginning or even from the time of their death. It only says that “next,” they were seen for three and a half days. Just looking at the clock, one could imagine that if the overcoming happened shortly after the May 20 Bellatrix point, then perhaps these dead bodies would be seen around the next point, around June 22 as indicated by Betelgeuse on the clock.

Was it so? The whole world certainly “saw” something around that day: the annular solar eclipse of June 21, 2020. Could this have anything to do with the two witnesses?

To understand how the prophecy was confirmed by the signs in heaven, one must know what roles the heavenly bodies are playing at this particular time. Indeed, they play several roles at once, depending on which prophetic context is under consideration.

In the context of the ark of the covenant, the annular eclipse (which resembles the picture of a black hole) represents the Shekinah glory of the One who shrouds Himself in darkness for our sakes.[20] In the context of the seventh trumpet, the annular eclipse represents the crowning of Jesus as king over the earth,[21] but in the context of the story of the two witnesses, the sun plays the role of the Bridegroom, who is the first witness:[22]

Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. (Psalm 19:4–5)

It is precisely here, at the June solstice, where the sun “comes out of his chamber” to run his year-long course. In this context, the sun is the first of the two witnesses, which—in the symbolic language of the heavens—is “killed” by the moon that eclipses it.

The first witness is “killed”

To the modern mind, there is a temptation to dismiss this kind of symbolism because we know what causes an eclipse and that it is a perfectly natural phenomenon and has nothing to do with death. Right? However, this kind of dismissal also minimizes the fact that God created the heavenly bodies for the very purpose of showing signs.[23] A person must recognize that God does speak through the heavens, not in a superstitious way, but in tandem with His written Word. An arbitrary eclipse has little or no influence or effect on life on earth, but when God speaks in His Word about an event that occurs at the time of an eclipse, then His Word gives a message to the heavenly phenomenon. The voice of God’s Word is the essential difference between biblical astronomy and heathen astrology.

And if you put yourself in the shoes of ancient civilizations where scientific knowledge was scarce, then the symbolism becomes abundantly clear. For all of the ancient civilizations, a solar eclipse was a terrible omen. Even without a knowledge of science, everyone knows that all life depends on the sun, and if the sun were blotted out, crops would fail, temperatures would drop, and it would mean nothing less than the end of the world. Great panic and fear would therefore accompany such an occurrence, and the people would be praying and agonizing for their sun god to live again, or their sins to be forgiven, until it reemerged safely. Thus, the intuitive meaning is brought out in the language of the Bible in the reference to the death of the two witnesses.

However, there are indeed TWO witnesses, and after reading The Comet of Elijah, it is not hard to understand what heavenly body plays the role of the second witness in this case. In the picture above, one can already see comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) coming up toward the galactic crossing, which it reaches about seven days later—three and a half days for each of the two witnesses, given in verse 9.

Comet 2020 F3 (NEOWISE) on Jul 14 2020 aligned to stars Comet NEOWISE also had its encounter with death as it made its close approach to the sun—and again, it was “seen” by the world as news outlets remarked about the comet’s approaching perihelion. And a comet—especially this one—is also a harbinger of the end of the world as explained in the previous article. And like all comets that pass near the sun, there was some suspense as people watched and waited to see if it would appear alive after its encounter with the sun—unlike comets ATLAS and SWAN that both disintegrated (died) earlier in the year.

In both cases, these two heavenly bodies emerged from their death victorious—that is, they were not allowed to be buried.

And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. (Revelation 11:9)

These depictions of the death of the two witnesses on the celestial canvas began on “Father’s Day” (June 21, 2020) with the annular (ring of fire) eclipse, fulfilling the next specification of the prophecy:

And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. (Revelation 11:10)

The “making merry” refers to more than just Father’s Day. It is also the “midsummer” day of all the sun-worshipping cults going as far back as the ancient Maya.

Do you see how God speaks through the heavenly bodies, indicating the timing of His prophetic messages to the world? This prophecy of the death of the two witnesses is acted out in the heavens right when the Orion clock strikes Betelgeuse at the midpoint of the ark of the covenant sign. This shows that there is a greater scope to what is encompassed in these few days! These movements and the life-and-death drama of these two heavenly bodies speak to the entire grand picture of the two witnesses in the symbolism of the ark of the covenant from April 27, 2020 to September 6, 2020. The next verse will help make this point clearer…

Waking Up to Riots

And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. (Revelation 11:11)

The sign of the Ten Commandments Here is the second mention of three and a half days in verse 11, which if taken together with the first in verse 9 as seven days and then doubled to account for both of the two witnesses, yields a total of 14 days from the time the dead bodies are first seen until the spirit of life from God enters them. This is the timeframe from the eclipse of June 21 till July 5, 2020 the date of the second penumbral lunar eclipse that represents the second table of the Ten Commandments in the ark.

This is when the entire law reached its full display in the heavenly sign, and this second table of the law is the part that concerns man’s relationship with fellow man. As the full moon exited the penumbral shadow, its shining light represented how the Law of God shines as the moral light for all of humanity: the Spirit of life to those who keep it and a cause of great fear to those who break it.

Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. (Revelation 22:14)

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. (Romans 8:2)

This puts all the weighty matters of the present age into focus: the sanctity of marriage, the wrongness of abortion, and the abomination of same-sex marriage and LGBT lifestyle practices. It is this second table of the law with the last six commandments that includes the definition of marriage between a man and a woman (i.e. father and mother defined in the fifth commandment), the sanctity of life itself as propagated by their union (in the sixth) and the holiness and permanence of marriage (in the seventh). These are the matters (along with ALL of the remaining commandments) that should be the focus of attention and the subject of preaching for everyone who does not want to succumb to the mark of the beast! These signs in heaven give a prophetic time marker to show that the disregard of God’s law, which is the root cause of the world’s present problems, has now reached the point where God is comparing the world to the standard of His law.

By that day (July 5, 2020), the sun stood in the midst of the constellation of Gemini, representing the Spirit of life in the two witnesses. July 5 was also when it became clear that comet NEOWISE survived perihelion. Thus, the Spirit of life from God entered into “them” and “they” stood on their feet. But again, God speaks of things in heaven and on earth at the same time in the prophetic language for the purpose of communicating His will. He did not give the prophecy to tell us when the sun would be eclipsed or when a comet would survive perihelion, but He gave those signs to give instruction about the identity of the two witnesses. So, who really are the “they” in this verse that stand on their feet? Is it still speaking of the sun as the Bridegroom (first witness) and the comet (as the second witness)? Or is it speaking more about a new footing (standing on their feet) of the same two witnesses that prophesied in sackcloth before they were overcome by the beast from the bottomless pit?

Within a matter of days from the shining of the second table of the law, the “day” (year) and the “hour” (clock round) of Christ’s coming was announced through the publication of the first article in the Victory Shout series on WhiteCloudFarm.org on July 8, 2020, entitled The Hour of Escape. That article introduced the victory cycle, thus unveiling the date when both clocks—of the Father and the Son—will strike midnight together on June 21, 2021, given through the sign of the ark of the covenant, by the very point in time that represents the Shekinah glory of the Father Himself. The Father makes known the time of His Son’s return! This, and all that it entails, was the great meaning of the sign, and it required opening this new series of articles with these new publications, after the four authors had finished their prophesying in sackcloth, which ended on May 4, 2020.

Comet NEOWISE over New York In other words, the two witnesses stood on their feet again through this renewed publication effort, which began on July 8, about the time comet NEOWISE became visible to the naked eye, and it will probably end with the publication of this third part around the time the comet disappears again and the transposed 1888-1890 judgment marker on the closing cycle (July 29 till Aug 1, 2020) has been passed.[24] This series, which represents the two witnesses “standing on their feet,” covers the span of the comet which itself makes its closest approach to the earth on July 23, which has been repeatedly shown to be pointing to the second witness, whose “footing” in the heavenly sign touches that date.[25]

The second witness is also the second “Miller,” in reference to the William Miller who was primarily responsible for the great advent awakening of the 1840s.[26] His preaching convicted people of their sin and brought them to repentance by showing how the time prophecies of the Bible were coming together and pointing to the coming judgment day in or around 1843. Lo, and behold, that year also saw the appearance of a comet: the Great Comet of 1843. Through a clearer understanding of the times and the Father’s clock, it was understood that the timelines of prophecy more precisely pointed to the Day of Atonement in the autumn of the following year, namely October 22/23, 1844. Thus, a comet marked the beginning of the great antitypical “judgment day” as a sign one year in advance—discovered on February 5 and reaching perihelion on February 27, 1843. And now comet NEOWISE comes as a sign in the year before the end of the great day of judgment, heralding the message of the second “Miller” who he foreshadowed.

God had in mind something to say to the world concerning the second anointed one. The happenings of July 22, 2020 and the insight God gave through the moon sighting the prior evening were shared in the article Desolations Are Determined, which was written to convey the urgency of the warning of the last “Elijah” and the scope of the ramifications if the warnings are not heeded.

In that article is also a powerful confirmation of the second witness who is now represented standing at the ark of the covenant in the heavenly sign. This is another sense in which both witnesses have now “stood on their feet,” and the relationship between the two witnesses serves to make plain the matters of cause and effect in the world. The effects that are happening today are seen in rampant protests and global provocations to war, internally and externally, as the press itself states. For example, remarking on the plan to withdraw federal troops from Portland, Oregon, the Guardian directly links the timeframes of the two witnesses in the same breath:

But the announcement [of planned withdrawal] is a significant retreat by the administration after Trump sent federal forces to Portland at the beginning of July to end months of Black Lives Matter protests he described as having dragged the city into anarchy.

Instead of quelling the unrest, the arrival of paramilitaries fuelled some of the biggest demonstrations since daily protests following the killing of George Floyd, a Black American, by a white police officer in Minneapolis in May.[27]

Riots: cause and effect The killing of George Floyd, which happened at the time where the first anointed one stands in the heavenly sign, has been bearing its fruit in the form of riots for many weeks, bringing conflict to thousands of cities across the nation. Wikipedia catalogues and totals them as follows:[28]

The protests spread to over 2,000 cities and towns in all 50 states and all 5 permanently-inhabited territories, as well as in over 60 other countries, with demonstrators supporting those seeking justice for Floyd and the wider Black Lives Matter movement, and speaking out against police brutality. Many cities have seen continuous protests since Floyd’s killing…

That is another important number in relation to the total number of cities in the country:

As of 2018, there are 19,495 incorporated cities, towns and villages in the United States.[29]

You can do the math in your head: two out of twenty thousand cities is one tenth:

And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. (Revelation 11:13)

These violent protests have not only been bringing conflict to many cities, but also causing tensions between state and federal powers, as can be seen in Portland, Oregon, where federal forces have been deployed to help control the problem.[30] Unfortunately, it has made matters worse:

“These federal officers have acted as an occupying force, refused accountability, and brought violence and strife to our community,” the governor said.[31]

This type of federal government intervention has been strongly criticized by, for example, the mayor of Chicago, Illinois who is determined to use every “tool” available to prevent such intervention in her state.

It is important to understand that both sides are being stoked to conflict according to the Hegelian dialectic: for example, Trump stokes the fires of racism, which in turn results in more violence, which in turn stokes the government to intervene more. It is a deliberate effort to destroy the country so the “phoenix” can rise from the ashes.

I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled? (Luke 12:49)

But Trump is provoking the destruction of America not only internally, but also externally, as he lit the fuse on WW3 with the closing of the Chinese consulate in Texas on the very date where the second witness “stands” in the heavenly sign, as explained in Desolations Are Determined. It is just a matter of time until the inevitable bill for the sins of the nation comes due.

Somewhat surprisingly, another “seven thousand” also died at this time, promptly on eve of the new moon:

July 21, 2020 – Twitter bans 7,000 QAnon accounts, limits 150,000 others as part of broad crackdown

This indicates a second fulfillment of the middle part of the verse:

And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. (Revelation 11:13)

This is quite logical, considering that there are two witnesses. In connection with the first witness, seven thousand police officers were prevented from doing their job in Berlin[32] (where Satan’s seat is) as a result of anti-discrimination legislation that made it prohibitively risky for the police officers to intervene without being accused of discrimination. Again, it is the Hegelian dialectic: taking the police off the scene (as desired by the ongoing[33] “defund the police” movement in the US) would in turn allow the rioting to run more rampant, which just feeds into the burn-down.

Now, Twitter’s banning of 7000 accounts promoting the QAnon “pro-Trump conspiracy theory” follows as a counterpart, this time striking the root of how people organize themselves for demonstrations in today’s day and age—i.e. via social media.

QAnon demonstrations

The crackdown by Twitter thus in turn fuels the outrage on the streets too. And it isn’t just Twitter; other social media giants like Facebook are preparing to take action as well.[34] Much of America’s voice is presently directed to topics concerning the presidential campaign, and there seems to be no limit to the extent to which Trump will provoke the nation—now even suggesting to delay the elections.

The two fulfillments of the “seven thousand” of Revelation 11:13 shows that both of the two witnesses had to stand on their feet, and only now after this second fulfillment happened can the remainder of the prophecy take place and “the remnant can be affrighted and give glory to the God of heaven.” This, going by the Orion clock, would correspond to the throne lines of September 3–6, 2020—and a remnant are already beginning to come together for that time.[35]

Giving glory to God at the end of the sign of the ark of the covenant corresponds to when Elijah brought the priests of Baal down the mountain to the brook Kishon to slay them,[36] or when Moses came down form Mt. Sinai and found the children of Israel worshiping a golden calf; he separated the people and killed the offenders.[37] Babylon is a false system of belief and worship, and by demonstrating the truth clearly before the people, it spiritually “kills” the false teachers and false prophets whose beliefs cater to the carnal nature. Examples of the priests of Baal are the teachers of the OSAS doctrine and the pre-tribulation rapture, which appeal to a person’s selfishness by unhitching salvation from obedience and offering a reward without a sacrifice. This is the so-called “cheap grace,” which can only be taught from the Scriptures by those who are determined to remain ignorant of the character of God.

Furthermore, as the story of the two witnesses comes to a close, we are now seeing the numbers of the sixth trumpet warning popping up in the second quarter figures for the US gross domestic product (GDP):

The US economy contracted at the sharpest rate on record in the second quarter this year, affirming fears that the coronavirus pandemic and measures to contain it drove a historic plunge in consumer and business activity….At 32.9%, the second-quarter annualized contraction marked by far the worst plunge ever recorded, based on Bureau of Economic Analysis data spanning back to 1947. Before the pandemic, the worst GDP print on record was in the first quarter of 1958, when GDP fell 10.0% on an annualized basis.[38]

The entire story of the two witnesses is encapsulated in the sixth trumpet prophecy, which speaks of one third (i.e. 33%) of “men” (such as George Washingtons) being killed:[39]

By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. (Revelation 9:18)

This is an indication that the warnings are no longer warnings—the actual consequences have arrived! The fall of the roof, about which the original Carmel challenge of July 8, 2015 spoke, has come exactly on the transposed 1888-1890 judgment marker on the closing cycle where “Elijah” stands as the second witness.

Timeframes of the seventh trumpets The fulfillment of the two witnesses is a profound affirmation of the coming of Jesus, because it is part of the mystery of God that must be finished, and that must be done in the time of the seventh trumpet.[40] When looking at the closing trumpet segments of the Orion clock, the killing of the two witnesses (in the context of the publishing work) corresponds to the seventh trumpet of the loud trumpet cycle from April 27 to May 20, 2020, whereas the resurrection (i.e. the publication of this article series) happened during the seventh trumpet of the preparatory trumpet cycle. In this way, the mystery is finished when both of the seventh trumpets have sounded. And in the Jericho model, the last trumpet blast of all is the long trumpet blast that signals for the people to shout, so the mystery should be finished not too long before September 3–6, 2020 (i.e., with this article series).

It is refreshing to see some YouTubers like “blue heaven[41] suddenly bucking the norm on the issue of time-setting, knowing full well the criticism they will get from those who want to stay in darkness so they can continue in the pleasures of this life without knowing how short time really is. She repeatedly described the time in question as “10 till 2” or “10 after 10,” which is a perfect description of the ark of the covenant sign on the Orion clock, because the clock hands in those positions point to the two witnesses standing on the sides of the ark of the covenant, as illustrated below. That means the twelve o’clock hour—MIDNIGHT—would be June 21, 2020, the middle of the sign marked by the ring-of-fire eclipse that points to Christ’s arrival one year later. Thus, the entire “day” (year) of the Second Coming is shown to them.

“Ten till two” or “ten after ten”

Thus, this sign—besides providing the miraculous heavenly sustenance for the priests as represented by the manna in the ark—also indicates how the 372 unused rations should be distributed for the people: namely, 365 from June 21, 2020 marked by the sign to June 21, 2021 when the Kingdom comes, plus 7 for the seven days of travel until the saints arrive for the wedding supper, just as they were earmarked except one year later, for the year of Christ’s coming.

And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. (Revelation 11:12)

A “great voice from heaven” is the language of a heavenly sign—a “great” one. This is the great sign of the ark of the covenant wherein the two witnesses are seen in heaven, where they ascended once the second witness had stood on his feet (July 22–Aug 1), with NEOWISE’s closest approach to earth in those days. Yes, new wisdom is available—but as the comet stays only for a short time, one should take immediate advantage of the wisdom it points to, before “great fear” of the end of the world falls not only symbolically but also literally.

Is this also pointing to a literal rapture of the Philadelphia church or just the departure of “Elijah”? And if so, when and how? As we reach into future events, it becomes more difficult to say exactly how prophecies will fulfill, and these are questions that Time will have to answer, but it falls to every student of prophecy to seek those answers, because one thing is certain: if one does not first ask questions about these things, then one will not receive the answers.

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. (Matthew 7:7–8)

The chariot of fire and the horsemen thereof The trajectory of comet NEOWISE has more to teach us in this regard, because from about July 23 (its closest approach to earth) through the end of the month, it is passing under the Big Dipper in the constellation of Ursa Major. The Big Dipper was known in earlier times as the “wagon”:

The Goths similarly called the seven stars Karl Wagen, which has descended to modern Germans as Wagen and Himmel Wagen, the last with the story that it represents the Chariot in which Elijah journeyed to heaven. But in the heathen times of the northern nations it was the Wagon of Odin, Woden, or Wuotan, the father of Thor, and the Irmines Wagen of the Saxons. Grimm cites Herwagen, probably the Horwagen of Bayer and the Hurwagen of Caesius; while a common English name now is the Waggon. The Poles call it Woz Niebeski, the Heavenly Wain. In all these similes the three tail stars of our Bear were the three draught-horses in line.[42]

This evokes the picture described in the Bible:

And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces. (2 Kings 2:12)

Understanding prophecy is a living walk with God, and there is only so much that “Elijah” can do before his successor must go forward in his strength and finish the work. When “Elijah” has gone, those who are left behind can then ask themselves how and when “Elijah” went away. It will then devolve upon them to put the last pieces of the puzzle in place.

Note also that the two witnesses are no longer on the scene when the final event closes out the second woe:

And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. (Revelation 11:13)

Was the initial interpretation of this earthquake, as offered in The Great Earthquake, all there was? Or could that have been the first foreshock with more to come, now that both witnesses have stood on their feet? In light of the greater scope of the sign of the ark of the covenant that shows the story of the two witnesses playing out over a larger timeframe, it is possible that this earthquake also encompasses what will happen at the close of the sign, September 3–6, 2020. The prophecy only limits the timing of the earthquake to the “same hour” of the ascending of the two witnesses; with one hour as one cycle, this beginning on May 25, 2020 fits perfectly. But if there are also aftershocks, then again, it will devolve upon the “remnant” of that prophecy to look back and “give God the glory” by explaining how the prophecy is further fulfilled.

Perhaps we are even already starting to see another layer of fulfillment take shape through people like Dana Coverstone, who dreamt of a September calendar and many people coming for a solemn assembly praying on every day throughout the month. This fits the last segment of the “closing cycle” of the Orion clock pretty well—from September 3-6 to October 5, 2020 (noting that there is the autumn feast season with a Day of Atonement solemn assembly during that timeframe). Other prophets have also received messages confirming the weighing in the balances,[43] for example, and the appearance of the covering cherub angel symbolized by NEOWISE who comes down from heaven to arm and protect God’s children.[44] May God strengthen (and still guide and correct, as needed) such ones in their effort to follow Him!

Anyway, we believe that the two witnesses have completely ascended to heaven in the White Cloud with the publication of this last part of the Victory Shout series that started on August 1, 2020 in English and ends with the other languages on August 6, the 61st birthday of modern “Elijah”.

The Last Warning Timeframe of the third woe

As the story of the two witnesses ends, so does the second woe that the sixth trumpet warned of. Based on the understanding that each woe is caused because of and happens as a result of its respective trumpet, it is perfectly valid that the second woe (the woe of the sixth trumpet) closes as the seventh trumpet is ending. The Bible text requires sequentiality only among the woes themselves (not between the woes and trumpets):

The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly. (Revelation 11:14)

The seventh trumpet (whose description starts in the next verse) is allowed to begin fulfilling independently of the conclusion of the second woe, as long as its respective woe (the third woe, which comes as a consequence of it) follows “quickly” (i.e. soon but not immediately) after the second woe ends. Thus, it is perfectly logical and in harmony with the allegory of Christ’s coming as “travail upon a woman” to see the third and last woe as beginning on October 5, 2020 with the “hour” of Christ’s return, which continues until June 21, 2021.

In this way, all three woes are sequential while each one comes after its respective trumpet as it should.

Timeline of the woes and trumpets

Thus, it becomes apparent that the seventh trumpet is essentially about the second woe of the two witnesses, and not the third woe itself as many may assume. This is even discernable in the text itself, which speaks about the voices “in heaven” giving homage to the Lord who receives the kingdoms of the earth forever at the coronation scene on June 21, 2020:

And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. (Revelation 11:15)

And finally closes with reference to the ark of God being seen:

And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail. (Revelation 11:19)

The ark of God is where the two cherubim (the two witnesses, olive trees) stand, particularly in front of the God “of the earth” (because Jesus took up His reign over the kingdoms of the “earth” on June 21, 2020):

These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. (Revelation 11:4)

Furthermore, both the seventh trumpet and the story of the two witnesses conclude with an earthquake, which can now be seen as one and the same event.

In that way, the overlapping timeframe of the story of the two witnesses and the seventh trumpet are indicated in the Scriptures themselves, and thus the arrangement of the woes described above is not only logical and without contradiction, but also indicated biblically by the text itself.

The text also gives some insight into how “Elijah’s” challenge could be answered with fire from heaven: with “great hail” as indicated in the seventh trumpet text. This “hail,” of course, is probably not ice, but something of a much more destructive (and even contaminating) nature, which can be deduced from the warnings of the past seven judgment cycles. All the trumpet and plague warnings—all of the heavenly and earthly signs and events—all point to the final great outpouring of God’s wrath upon the world in the form of letting loose all the natural consequences of the course humanity has taken.

Just to name a few contributing factors: The South China Sea. The threat of nuclear proliferation involving North Korea (which claims deterrence now[45]) and Iran. (The Iran deal is directly connected to the delay of Revelation 7:3, so its likely collapse in October[46] is especially significant.) There’s the fall of Hong Kong’s liberty,[47] which puts Taiwan next in the crosshairs. The Crimea and Ukraine crises. NATO fractures. European realignments of military priorities. Riots and unrest—and a coronavirus crisis that has the world under the continual specter of overnight lockdown and war-time restrictions of freedom.

Each of these individual topics could be expanded into a mile-long discourse about how the world has been edging closer and closer to world war and the very brink of a rain of fire from heaven the likes of which mankind has never envisaged.

Those who have studied the plagues of Revelation carefully have noted that the described effects could be the result of a single cause, with plausible hypothesis ranging from a supervolcanic eruption, to a nuclear conflagration, or even a gamma-ray burst—any of which could cause a sequence of devastation that could align with the descriptions of the seven last plagues. The links to those topics offer readers a taste of how the warnings of the Bible have been given utterance in various contexts in recent years. Even when a warning is given symbolically or is described comparatively, it is still a warning that if heeded would preserve the hearer. When the disaster comes to those who do not take heed, it will not matter if they die because of a tsunami that wipes the coast clean, because a blanket of burning ash buries them alive, or because they were within a bomb’s blast radius. Therefore, God warns in various ways that all serve to convey the severity of the coming judgments to urge people to repentance. But it is ultimately their own course that brings the judgments upon them, and therefore the warnings are given in the hopes that people will change their course. It is simply that if you play with fire, you’re gonna get burned, and that is what the seven last plagues are about.

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. (Revelation 18:4)

Thus, it seems logical that the final outpouring of the seven last plagues—in the literal form that sceptics and critics have been demanding—could follow in the last seven consecutive segments of the clock, with no more warnings or grace periods to intervene; just the harsh reality of “what goes up must come down.” The re-application of the plague texts to the last seven segments of the clock is how Babylon is “rewarded double” with the plagues, and it shows again how the principle of progressive revelation works, because there is more information per unit time in the last cycle, which combines not only the plague texts but also Revelation 18 and 19 in parallel.

But is a radioactive disaster the fire that will kindle “Elijah’s” altar on September 3–6, or will the people of God intervene, and experience another fire more like what John the Baptist spoke of, which came on Pentecost in the form of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit? The first few drops seem to already be falling through instruments like Eddie Paul Flowers, who shows what it meant when it was said of Jesus that “tears were in His voice as He uttered His scathing rebukes.”[48]

The seven last plagues In any case, it is not hard to understand that “Elijah” must necessarily depart at some point (in some form), after which it will be up to the 144,000 to piece together the final events in light of the prophetic framework that “Elijah” worked so hard to forge. They will have to mark how each of the seven last plagues fulfill in real-world circumstances and line up with the clocks of God. They will have to work out their own salvation with fear and trembling,[49] and in so doing also feed others with the hope and encouragement that God gives through the written word and His voice from heaven.

The trumpets warned of the plagues, and both go hand-in-hand. Even if the judgments of God are stayed by prayer and repentance, eventually the wicked must receive their reward. The first trumpet and plague could be a description of acute radiation syndrome (ARS), which would be the first effect of a catastrophe involving radioactive contamination.

The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. (Revelation 8:7)

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)

With the present escalations in war-like closures of Chinese consulates in the US and vice versa, it is not hard to imagine that perhaps the US (the prophetic “earth”) could soon be the target of such a hail. In addition to the direct damage, such an attack could also scatter radioactive waste from any nuclear powerplants or other strategic targets that are hit, resulting in radiation exposure.

The second plague could correspond to the contamination of bodies of water, as also suggested by the “sea” (the Orion Nebula) within the Saiph-Rigel segment.

And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed. (Revelation 8:8–9)

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

Nuclear power plants are always situated where large amounts of water are available and could thus explain why the waters are contaminated in the second and third plagues. In a less literal sense, the death in the sea could allude to ramifications for Europe, the prophetic “sea,” as well. All the warnings that have been made regarding this trumpet and plague can be instructive for understanding what happens in the timeframe from October 5 to November 17, 2020.

Then comes the third plague, affecting the rivers. When radioactive contamination affects even the rivers and springs, then these texts might well fit:

And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. (Revelation 8:10–11)

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

“Bitter” is simply a way of expressing that the water was poisoned. This could be from the radioactive fallout, for example. This third plague corresponds well leading up to the throne lines, which are the “river” in the Orion clock.

The fourth trumpet and plague speak about the sun. Even a “limited” nuclear war could have damaging effects on the ozone layer,[50] which would explain the scorching heat:[51] without the protection of the ozone layer, the sun’s radiation would come directly through the atmosphere to “scorch men.” This is exactly the kind of thing that the fourth trumpet warned of, as documented in the video 4th Trumpet: Heavenly Bodies are Smitten. Timewise, this corresponds to the “silence in heaven,” which would be associated with the persecution (“darkening”) of the church and the time of its greatest trial, as the fourth trumpet warned.[52]

Notwithstanding the above, the resulting pollution and related atmospheric effects would have a latent darkening effect—the cause of the so-called nuclear winter—which could be the reason why the throne of the beast is darkened in the fifth plague. This would correspond to the “head” segment—the highest point on the clock, as Satan wanted to exalt his throne above the stars of God.[53] This plague will especially affect the sun god(s) in the Vatican who deceived the churches.

The sixth plague, which reaches to the throne lines again, speaks of the Euphrates being dried up to prepare the way of the kings of the east. In this context, this seems to speak of the appearance of the Kingdom of God (as the Kings of the east) in the segment of the seventh plague that follows it.

Thus, the clocks offer an overview of how the plagues could fulfill. But it does not make sense to go into too much detail on things that have not happened yet; “Elijah” can only do his best to offer you an outline of what is known thus far, but after that, the 144,000 will have to take up the mantle to put the puzzle pieces together with real-world events as they unfold, and thus prepare spiritual nourishment and hope for others.

Nevertheless, there is a certain “finishing” that must be accomplished before that, by the time the seventh trumpet closes…

The Final Contest

As explained in the introduction to this article, the mystery of God must be finished in the timeframe of the seventh trumpet:

But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets. (Revelation 10:7)

At the time of this writing, we are nearing the end of the seventh trumpet timeframe, which means that all the prophecies of Revelation should be understood, at least substantially as far as possible according to the heavenly language, even though the exact way in which it works out will remain to be seen. This means that any future heavenly signs should already be understandable now, and God’s people should exercise all diligence to do so.

In pursuit of that goal, it has been previously noted that the silence in heaven of the seventh seal provides an important indication, expressed in the first article of this series:

One of perhaps many implications of the silence in heaven is that no heavenly message will accompany those January throne lines, because silence in heaven implies that no voices would be emanating from the throne at that time. That station of the clock—where voices come from the very throne of God—would be marked by an awful silence. This would have very profound implications...[54]

One implication of silence in heaven would thus be the absence of any meaningful signs in the heavens that would accompany a message from God. And God speaks through the heavens in accordance with His written Word, so the question arises: What is the last heavenly sign indicated in the Bible, prior to this period of silence?

Earlier, it was noted that the conjunction of Mercury with the sun on May 4, 2020 turned out to signify the release of the two witnesses from their sackcloth. However, the initial interpretation of the sign as “the angel standing in the sun”[55] was never confirmed. To the contrary, the discovery of the ark of the covenant and the additional victory cycle of the clock has led to the understanding that the coming of Jesus described in Revelation 19 is a portrayal of this new cycle, which is the “hour” of His coming that transpires over an entire round of the clock. It overlaps the description of chapter 18, which explains the events from an earthly perspective. This concept was introduced in the previous article as follows:

Meanwhile, in contrast to the entirely earthly setting of chapter 18, another view of the “hour” is given in chapter 19. It begins with voices in heaven—the expressions of praise and victory on the part of those who belong to the kingdom of God. This corresponds to the “victory shout” …which just precedes the crumbling of Babylon.

Thus, the angel standing in the sun from chapter 19:17 (below) could not refer to anything prior to the “hour” of the coming of Jesus that begins on October 5, 2020 with the white horse rider (i.e. Saiph).[56]

Notwithstanding, it is clearly heavenly symbolism—a “messenger” (i.e. planet) standing in the “sun” (a conjunction)—and therefore should not be difficult to identify on the heavenly canvas, knowing the correct timeframe in which it should occur.

And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; (Revelation 19:17)

If one begins where the silence starts—January 11, 2021—there is no “angel” of any kind standing in conjunction with the sun; the sun simply stands alone over the rump of Sagittarius.

Silence in heaven begins

But again, one should not expect a sign at this time because this is the beginning of the silence in heaven (and the text in question even speaks of a “loud voice”). It might be tempting to notice the cluster in Capricorn and try to make some kind of sense of this scene, but to do so would be contrary to the principles of sound Bible study, when the Bible (via the clocks) already points to silence at this time.

A word of caution is in order here, because a creative mind is naturally tempted to find meaning in the arrangements of stars or other serendipitous happenings. However, such a course quickly devolves into pure superstition and (in the case of the stars) astrology. God’s Word must be the foundation and motivation for discovering His messages in the stars, and one must follow His rules for deducing meaning in the heavenly scenes. Anything else would not be seeking His will, but one’s own.

But we are trying to find the angel standing in (conjunction with) the sun, and the above scene is simply the starting point as the last possible moment before the silence begins in heaven. Thus, we need only to step backwards in time until one of the heavenly “messengers” is seen in conjunction with the sun. This occurs the day before the December solstice:

The last sign before the silence begins

This picture is highly interesting for a few reasons! Let’s take it step-by-step not to miss anything…

First of all, the angel that stands “in” (Strong’s: in, at, upon, by…) the sun is indeed the planet Mercury, which is the “messenger” (i.e. angel) and thus exactly the heavenly body that was expected to participate in this sign. So far, the text is confirmed.

Next, notice that Jupiter and Saturn are also engaged in close combat, also in conjunction on precisely December 21. This is highly significant considering that chapter 19 is speaking about Christ’s battle with Satan, and in light of the great controversy for the throne of the universe, as explained in The Stench of the First Plague – Part I. In that article was explained how Saturn represents Satan, and how (as the ringed planet) he has usurped the crown and was hovering over the galactic center in the biggest coup d’etat the universe has ever known, as shown in the following animation covering the time from early 2017 to spring 2019.

The great controversy enacted

Notice that Jupiter (the king planet in representation of Jesus Christ) comes on the scene and pushes Saturn away from the galactic center. This represents the great controversy between Christ and Satan playing out in these years, when the sacrifice of Philadelphia was made.

But the story did not end in 2019! In all this heavenly drama, Jupiter never actually “hits” Saturn until December 21, 2020. This represents the most intense phase of combat—the great tribulation—when the armies of Jesus Christ meet the hordes of Satan face to face to fight to the death once and for all, to accomplish Satan’s total defeat. This is also the same region of the sky where Sagittarius, Scorpius, and the serpent-bearing Ophiuchus represent the enemies of God.

And that is why there is silence in heaven: the great battle is taking place on earth and myriads upon myriads of galaxies and star systems are looking on with inexpressible interest to see the outcome. Sides have been taken and the battle lines have been drawn, but now who will gain the victory?

The coming silence in heaven also means that the people of God will not have the comfort of hearing His voice in the darkest phase of their trial, when they will be tested to the utmost for fidelity to God’s law, which is summarized in the commandment to love one’s neighbor selflessly. They must follow in Christ’s footsteps in this same top half of the clock where Jesus’ own ministry is laid out as their example.

Yes, this is a lot of weight to rest on the shoulders of the 144,000 Christlike ones, but as Christ was strengthened for His trial by the angel in Gethsemane that shed light upon Him, so too, you have the privilege of the light of the angel of Revelation 18:1. Every effort must be made to stay vigilant and on guard in the spiritual warfare, lest a single one should die in the battle. The 144,000 must gather strength and recruit every one of God’s dear children, “turning many to righteousness”[57] by enlisting them in the army of God to fight this last battle selflessly, willing to make the ultimate sacrifice if necessary. Not only is the eternal life of their comrades at stake, lest one should turn away from duty because of the hardships of the battlefield, but they must always remember the risks involved in the great controversy.

The value of a soul, who can estimate? Would you know its worth, go to Gethsemane, and there watch with Christ through those hours of anguish, when He sweat as it were great drops of blood. Look upon the Saviour uplifted on the cross. Hear that despairing cry, “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?” Mark 15:34. Look upon the wounded head, the pierced side, the marred feet. Remember that Christ risked all. For our redemption, heaven itself was imperiled. At the foot of the cross, remembering that for one sinner Christ would have laid down His life, you may estimate the value of a soul. {COL 196.4}

The fowls of heaven If one looks a little higher, following the line of the galactic equator on which Mercury stands, the great eagle can be seen flying above this scene in representation of all the fowls of heaven—the good and loyal angels—who are gathered to execute God’s judgments upon the unrepentant, to devour the flesh of all classes, as the text describes:

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

So, go in the might of God’s strength and hold the shield of faith with a corresponding tenacity. It is only logical that those who will have a place in heaven must conquer the agents of evil on earth in the spiritual warfare. They must show a faithfulness and fidelity to God great enough and strong enough to overcome those whom they are to replace. Christ leads His army,[58] and where He overcame, every other human being can also overcome through Him. This is what righteousness by faith entails—not a free ride, as the OSAS camp teaches, but a faith in Christ that brings victory over sin. Perhaps if it were called OSIF (Once Saved, Impossible to Fall), people would understand the error in their doctrine better! Even Jesus could have fallen—but didn’t![59]

The battle itself is described in verse 19:

And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. (Revelation 19:19-20)

Again, it is seen in this verse that it is imperative that one has a correct understanding of the mark and image of the beast. Study the article The Mark of the Beast, because the enemy wants to deceive especially on this very point, and he is working hard to do it by offering alternative explanations that may seem very compelling and sometimes difficult to controvert, even for those who think they are well grounded in the Bible.

At the end of the battle, Jesus Christ will destroy every one of the wicked who remains:

And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh. (Revelation 19:21)

The victory cycle This is the cause of the rejoicing in heaven at the beginning of the chapter—not because the victory is already won at the beginning, but because the army of Jesus Christ—144,000 strong—is going to the battle to be victorious. This is the victory shout of Jericho—before the walls fell and the battle ensued. Thus, the victory shout begins on September 3–6, 2020 and the battle begins on October 5, 2020, as explained previously.

This sign of the angel standing in the sun appears on December 20-21, 2020, shortly before the right throne lines on the clock and the beginning of the silence in heaven of “about” half an hour. Thus, the great river Euphrates (symbolized by the throne lines) begins to dry out—no more messages from heaven are given at that time—to prepare the way for the kings of the east after the silence is over on the left side.

The Millstone

A triumph comes on May 20–23, 2021 when the silence is broken by the heavens speaking again. The sign at that point was already explained in detail in The Hour of Escape through the parallel events of Revelation 18 and the great millstone of Jupiter that grinds the cold and hardened enemies of God to powder.[60] Although the description appears in chapter 18 (i.e. earlier than chapter 19), its chronological timing belongs here because chapter 18 and 19 are parallel prophecies from different perspectives: earthly vs. heavenly. (This is similar to how the prophecy of the woe of the two witnesses overlaps with the seventh trumpet, as explained earlier.)

Not to repeat the details of the millstone sign that have already been written in The Hour of Escape, let us just add a few additional comments. Indeed, the sign points especially to the May 20–23 station indicated by the throne lines on the Orion clock, when the silence in heaven officially ends:

The great millstone

It is at this point that Saturn turns retrograde, signifying that then Satan will be overcome, and his LGBT-tolerant hordes will be defeated. In that last segment of the Orion clock leading up to June 21, 2021 when Jesus Himself ultimately slays the wicked, the seventh and strongest plague will be poured out.

And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great. (Revelation 16:21)

Not even then will the wicked repent, and this shows the justice of God in finally bringing the experiment of sin to an end.

After the new moon of the second witness dramatically confirmed the second anointed one as a perfect reflection of the first Anointed One in Desolations Are Determined, it gave added significance to the anniversary date of the May 20 triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, which is now seen highlighted with the throne lines of May 20–23, 2021 in the victory cycle of the Orion clock, as well as in the millstone sign above.

However, to make a triumphal entry, first there must be a “Jerusalem,” right? What “Jerusalem” could have something to do with a triumph on May 20, 2021? The answer comes from Revelation’s companion book again:

Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. (Daniel 9:24)

The prophecy of the seventy weeks and Jesus’ crucifixion in the middle of the last week has historically been one of the clearest and most compelling proofs that Jesus of Nazareth was the Messiah, and that His own nation crucified Him. (This is historical fact, not anti-Semitism.)

Could it be that this prophecy also holds a key to the second coming of Jesus? After all, many have noted that Jesus did NOT fulfill the last half of the seventieth week, because He was cut off midweek by crucifixion.

It is often hypothesized that if the Jews had accepted and welcomed Jesus as the Messiah, then He would have fulfilled the entire seventieth week and set up His kingdom then and there. But since He was rejected, someone else would have to come later to fulfill the second half of that seventieth week. Who would it be?

It is, of course, worth noting that half a week is three and a half days, which is a prominent duration used in reference to the two witnesses of Revelation 11—both literally and prophetically as 1260 days (three and a half years, by the day for a year principle). Could this be a hint that since Jesus fulfilled three and a half years of service in the last “week” of the historical seventy-week timeline (counted in prophetic time) that the second witness might have something to do with a literal seventy-week counterpart, wherein the last three and a half days are fulfilled in a special way? If so, then May 20–23, 2021 could be the end of such a 70-week timeline, with a “triumphal entry” of some sort on that May 20.

This begs the answer to the question: “What command to rebuild Jerusalem could have been issued starting 70 weeks prior to that date, which could then lead to the building of “spiritual Jerusalem,”[61] which is the church of God?” First of all, let’s calculate…

May 23, 2021 (the end of the seventy weeks) minus 490 days (or 489 to count inclusively) equals January 20, 2020! This was the day of the grand opening of The Refuge of the 144,000 Remnant!!!

The Grand Opening of the Refuge

Please take a moment to read the grand opening statement and really digest what this means. Following the Lord’s leading, this small team worked tirelessly night and day to build a refuge, envisioned as something like a hotel where faithful Christian YouTubers could bring their channels (courtesy of the refuge) and continue to share their light. Their story is not unlike the story of Jerusalem’s rebuilding, when the men of God worked with swords girded to rebuild the wall and secure the city “even in troublous times.”[62]

We live in a world where Internet freedom is a thing of the past. Censorship is a frequent occurrence on platforms like YouTube, and regardless of whether or not QAnon was right, the closing of the 7000 Twitter accounts and limiting of 150,000 others shows how powerful the silencing effort is—and mind you, the same laws apply to all the other social media platforms as well.

At God’s command and foreseeing the need for an alternative platform for the 144,000, this group invested their limited resources and personnel to solve the technical challenges necessary to implement a video hosting platform with state-of-the-art capabilities that will scale in accordance with the demand. And seventy weeks after the grand opening, in the last week of the seventy weeks, the throne lines of the Orion clock so happen to point to exactly the last three and a half days. This is no coincidence! It is the work of God, and God will bring to pass a victory for His people, even if they are few in number (in comparison to, e.g., the Seventh-day Adventist Church that postponed its General Conference Session to those very days).

Once again, God has brought the contest to a head, and again at the sixth plague point on the clock. It is a battle for souls, and Time is on the side of those who listen to the voice of God early, because in that last segment of time until the clock stops, it will be too late for the foolish virgins to procure the oil that would guide them to the door of the bridegroom’s chamber.

On June 21, 2021, Jupiter also turns retrograde, slowing down and turning around as if depicting Jesus coming to pick up His people from the world of Aquarius and take them back with Him. The ark door—the gates of the Holy City—will be shut with the redeemed on board to set sail for their heavenly harbor, while the wicked are left to be bombarded by the hail that closes the seventh plague.

Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. (Revelation 22:14–15)

The call of God and the call of the saints is always the same: “turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die!?” It is not hate speech to name the things that will result in eternal death and urge people to stop doing them. On the contrary, to warn is love. But when there are no more who will turn, and the voice of love falls only on deaf ears, then there is just one thing left for Jesus to do…

Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire. (Matthew 3:12)

When the Lord takes up the saints on June 21, 2021, the biblical date will be the tenth of Sivan. It was in this month that the letter was written for the Jews in the time of Esther, sealed in the king’s name, that granted them to defend themselves. Furthermore, Ezekiel prophesied of the king of Egypt’s death in this month as a type for the fate that awaits the ruler of “Egypt” today—Pope Francis, the serpent bearer—when the Lord’s judgment on this world has fully come:

And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the third month, in the first day of the month, that the word of the Lord came unto me, saying… All the fowls of heaven made their nests in his boughs, and under his branches did all the beasts of the field bring forth their young, and under his shadow dwelt all great nations. (Ezekiel 31:1, 6)

Trees, which live very long and grow to be very great in comparison to other plant life, symbolize angels—the fallen angels, in this case, and especially Satan who was in the garden of Eden. He and all his fellow demons will be brought to their end, and with them all the “unclean birds” spoken of in Revelation, that put their trust in his branches.

To whom art thou thus like in glory and in greatness among the trees of Eden? Yet shalt thou be brought down with the trees of Eden unto the nether parts of the earth: thou shalt lie in the midst of the uncircumcised with them that be slain by the sword. This is Pharaoh and all his multitude, saith the Lord God. (Ezekiel 31:18)

This is also the month in which the law of God was delivered on Mt. Sinai, on the day of Pentecost, which falls just four days before the clock strikes June 21, 2021. All these things were foreshadowed in the sign of the ark of the covenant, which indicated the day/year of Jesus’ coming from June 21, 2020 to June 21, 2021. This is the great day (year) of the Lord’s coming, and within this year, is the hour of His coming—the victory cycle from October 5, 2020 to June 21, 2021.

Seeing “hours” in the last four contiguous cycles of the clock answers why these cycles share a common time base, whereas every previous cycle was generally shorter in duration than the one before it to show the shortness of time and the principle of progressive revelation by having more information per unit time; but in the case of the last four cycles, they share a common time base (of 259 days per cycle) because they are part of the same “day” which is divided into “hours” like how the clock of God is divided into four segments by the four horsemen of Revelation in the throne-room blueprint given in chapters 4 and 5 and explained in the Orion presentation. This is also a confirmation that only four cycles should be needed.

Soon we heard the voice of God like many waters, which gave us the day and hour of Jesus’ coming. The living saints, 144,000 in number, knew and understood the voice, while the wicked thought it was thunder and an earthquake. When God spoke the time, He poured upon us the Holy Ghost, and our faces began to light up and shine with the glory of God, as Moses’ did when he came down from Mount Sinai. {EW 14.1}

June 2021 calendar But back to Ezekiel’s prophecy of Pharaoh: it is dated to the eleventh year of the captivity. Note that the first vision of Ezekiel, received to guide and give hope to the subdued nation, is the vision of the clock of God in Orion that was published in 2010 to end the present “exile.” Now it can be seen that 11 years later (2021) is the year when God’s children are redeemed from their captivity and “Pharaoh” comes to his end.

Following the prospective seven-day travel plan laid out in The Hour of Truth and updated in later articles (both times also beginning on a Monday!), we can now make another adaptation based on the knowledge of the rapture on June 21, 2021. One just needs to count out the travel days beginning with June 21 and see how it comes out. However, counting out the star stopovers shows that there is one stop too many—a situation encountered before. Most likely there will be no stop at Betelgeuse, because it has probably already exploded (and the light just hasn’t reached the earth yet). Instead of stopping at a star system that no longer exists, the saints will be oohing and aahing at the supernova fireworks as the sacrificial love of the Lord is narrated more beautifully than ever before, on this beyond-lightspeed flight between Bellatrix and Rigel.

The odd moon? Meanwhile, a completely different experience will have happened on the old earth, which was left eons and lightyears behind. Judgment was executed upon those who refused to board the ark. Instead of sailing through illimitable space on waves of light, they chose to hunker down without a Savior to hope that “Spaceship Earth” could recover from the abuse that madmen heaped upon it.[63]

No earlier than the eve of June 21, 2021, the moon enters the constellation of Libra (the scales) which stands for judgment. Question: if both of the divine clocks—the Mazzaroth and the Orion clock—have ticked to midnight in perfect harmony at the solstice-Saiph alignment of June 21, 2021, why didn’t God see fit to put the moon at a more significant “midnight” point too, such as on the galactic equator? There is a meaning in this.

The Binding of Satan

After the battle described in Revelation 19, the next verse describes another angel coming down from heaven:

And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. (Revelation 20:1)

This “angel” who has power to lock up Satan has already been understood to refer to Jesus, as explained in The Grand Finale and shown through the heavenly symbolism. In light of the spectacular alignment of the clock of Jesus with the clock of the Father on June 21, 2021, shouldn’t there be a corresponding sign on this date, and if so, which of the celestial objects should represent Him in this case?

When He returns, Jesus will come from Orion. In fact, the Orion message is itself the message of Jesus coming to receive His redeemed. In a big-picture view of the heavens, the constellation of Orion even stands so that the interlock between His clock and the Mazzaroth is shown by the hand of Orion (bottom) reaching up into the ecliptic (shown as a circle in the picture). At the solstice, the sun sits at that point of Orion and the circle of the ecliptic contact on the galactic equator, and the sun also stands for Jesus—as the Bridegroom that comes out of His chamber on that day of the year.

Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. (Psalm 19:4–5)

The sun “rejoices” with its full strength when it comes out of the constellation Taurus and crosses the galactic equator in the summer to begin its yearly circuit. This is symbolism that points directly to Jesus’ coming through His own parables.

And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. (Luke 21:29–31)

Jesus spoke this seasonal comparison of the end of the world after His triumphal entry into Jerusalem; it was the same exact time of year as the May 20–23 throne lines of 2021, which means the year will finally have come when the Kingdom of God will indeed be “nigh at hand.” How nigh? As nigh as summer! When summer arrives, so will the Kingdom.

In 2021, the Orion clock points to both May 20–23 as the beginning of the budding and June 21 as the arrival of summer. This illustrates the Son’s unity with the Father, as the Orion clock ticks exactly to the solstice in perfect alignment with the Mazzaroth.

In view of the accuracy of the Lord’s parable above, it is incomprehensible to think that Jesus does not know the time of His return. He knew it would be summer because that was already written in the Scriptures that existed in AD 31, but He could not then know the year. Therefore, nobody but the Father could know it.

But a lot has changed since then! Jesus ascended to the Father, and all things were given into His hand, and He in turn gave the Revelation to us through His angel. Knowledge has increased,[64] and now the Revelation is understood. Question: At what point does it become absurd to insist that Jesus STILL does not know the time? At what point must He know? Within a distance of how many miles will He need to come, before it can no longer be denied that He finally knows it?

Beside the sun (as the Bridegroom) coming out of its chamber, there is even Venus—the Morning Star[65]—standing in the divine twin, Pollux, as a representation of Jesus in the heavenly depiction of the two witnesses. So, the heavenly picture clearly portrays Jesus and His hand as mentioned in the Bible verse of Revelation 20:1 above, but where is the chain?

At the same time (or soon after) Jesus comes for His people, He has the chain to bind Satan. The chain can easily be identified by understanding what it is for: it is the chain to the bottomless pit, and the bottomless pit is symbolized by the “smoke” at the other end of the galactic equator, where the “enemy” constellations are gathered, as vividly shown (for example) in the videos accompanying Opening the Bottomless Pit. Therefore, the chain is the line of the galactic equator (which Orion’s hand also reaches out to, in addition to the ecliptic) that links directly to the bottomless pit. It is a great chain, because it reaches from one end of the heavens to the other.

The great chain

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

One might wonder: how will Jesus “lay hold” on the old serpent? Is this meant literally, or is it to be understood in the heavenly language?

Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down? (Job 41:1)

In the heavens, the serpent is borne by Ophiuchus, which is located by the bottomless pit. In fact, the moon (picture above, click to expand) is just entering the stretch of the Mazzaroth where the head of Ophiuchus’ snake (the constellation of Serpens) begins. Could this be a clue?

If a person watches the moon closely from June 21, 2021 until it reaches the galactic equator, there is an interesting result: the moon waxes from a gibbous to a full moon with its maximum (99.9%) illumination exactly when it reaches the galactic equator, where the constellation of Serpens ends.

That old serpent is sealed

It is not every year that the moon travels exactly this stretch of the galactic equator in this timeframe and with that lunar phase, and thus marks out the serpent and sets a “seal” upon him! The moon functions as the sealing instrument, and it seals the serpent into the bottomless pit by traveling through the domain of Serpens, arriving at the galactic equator line as a full moon.

And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. (Revelation 20:3)

Once all the wicked have died in the hail of the seventh plague or its aftermath, possibly with the protracted agony of disease and cold caused by the nuclear winter effect, the earth will be left completely desolate, uninhabited by mortals. Even Pope Francis will have died, leaving Satan without a host. Then he is left alone, imprisoned amidst the fruit of his own doings, condemned to roam for a thousand years the bottomless pit that he himself is responsible for turning the beautiful creation of God into.

But this wilderness of self-reflection will not bring about any positive change in him. After the saints’ arrival to their destination and the thousand years has meanwhile passed on earth, the multidimensional Holy City will come down again, and Christ will raise the wicked back to life to demonstrate one last important lesson in the plan of salvation.

And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. (Revelation 20:7–8)

In the one thousandth year of the millennium, when the Holy City lands[66] on August 26 in the year 3020, the moon that had sealed the serpent in the bottomless pit now appears in the constellation of Aquarius—the “sea” where the number of the wicked are represented:

The wicked released

This is where the great millstone had recently signaled Jesus’ victory over Babylon and all those who chose to embrace the LGBT and sexual abominations of this Age. The moon is just beginning to wane, indicating that the seal is just now removed on exactly that day.

The Great White Throne

The saints are crowned with eternal life earlier in the day that the beloved city touches down on the earth, which according to the biblical calendar for the year 3020 is the 14th day of the fifth month (Av), as revealed in the Mystery of the Holy City.

Now those hordes of the wicked are let loose from the slumber of death to roam the earth one last time. Satan is thereby also released from his solitude and goes forth to deceive the wicked, who will stop at nothing to obtain what he has promised them—even going so far as to plan an attack on the Holy City itself.

But as evening comes, the beloved voice of the Lord calls the saints to the happiest marriage supper they have ever known, on the 15th day of the fifth month, which is the joyful occasion of Tu B’Av.[67]

From this day forward, the nations are given an “hour” of 15 days under the leadership of Satan, as explained elsewhere,[68] which is the time from the marriage supper to the eradication of the wicked.

By that time, they have organized themselves for the attack.

And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city… (From Revelation 20:9)

July 2021 calendar For the saints, those 15 days were astir with preparations for the crowning act of the plan of salvation. The eternal reign of the Lord Jesus Christ—“POWEHI”—is about to be inaugurated with the re-creation of the heavens and the earth.

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. (Revelation 21:1)

There will be no Proud LGBT “sea creatures” in heaven, as represented by Aquarius, and no Cetus/Leviathan to tempt and destroy. What the new heavens and the new earth will offer is described in The Mystery of the Holy City. But for this to become reality, Satan and all the wicked must be destroyed once and for all.

…and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. (From Revelation 20:9)

As the benevolent Jesus Christ is coronated Victor over every foe and made Potentate of the universe, the brightest and most energetic fire ever known now cleanses the old earth. The gamma-ray burst from Betelgeuse does its work to prepare the ashes that the saints will figuratively tread for all eternity.[69]

And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. (Revelation 20:10)

Finally, the devil has come to his end “where the beast and the false prophet are.” This is well illustrated by the fact that all around this time, Saturn—with its rings as a crown—is sitting on the head of Sagittarius in the smoke of the bottomless pit.

Satan's final resting place

All alone, Saturn (as the devil) is at the head of Sagittarius (symbolizing the false prophet, apostate Protestantism) who is together with Scorpius (the beast) in the lake of fire that consumes all the wicked once and forever, just as the Bible describes. The fallen leader of all the former Protestants who lost their crown of life (Corona Australis at the feet of Sagittarius) is now nothing more than a defeated memory; he is the lost crown of those whom he has destroyed, never to rise again. Everyone who fell for the abomination of LGBT tolerance and same-sex marriage rights or disregarding any other part of the law of God are now joined by their leader to be destroyed eternally, never to live again to corrupt the atmosphere around those who wish to live pure and holy in the sight of God.

But the weeping of the saints for the lost is over. The focus of their interest is now on what the great light of the gamma-ray burst means for their new home, as those glorious words are repeated:

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. (Genesis 1:3)

A new creation week begins, and with it will come a new seventh-day Sabbath—the long-awaited “rest” of the people of God. That this falls on what will feel like Sunday to the saints has a wonderful meaning explained in The Mystery Finished – Part III. This moment marks the end of the old heavens and the old earth, and with them end all biblical heavenly signs, “for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away.”[70] Only one last sign is described before the old heavens flee:

And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. (Revelation 20:11)

Once the Ruler on the great white throne is seen, heaven and earth will dissolve. This will be the last sign, depicting the great inauguration of the Kingdom to come. The verses that follow are a chiastic reflection of the judgment decisions that were already made, but now the sentence is executed:

And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them:[71] and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:12–15)

No more death will ever sadden the citizens of the Kingdom of God, because everything (and everyone) that leads to death will die, and thus death itself will die and be no more! The Kingdom of God is a kingdom of life that springs from His love, and when its inauguration takes place, there will be no more death. Instead of the black holes that suck in their host galaxies like giant whirlpools, as the universe appears today, God’s new Kingdom will have white holes as fountains of light ever spurting and flourishing into new and more beautiful expressions of His love.

If a person looks at the heavens on that date, the sun is found in Leo, which is fitting for a scene that describes the King of kings on His throne. The moon is also in Leo not far away and begs to be paired with the sun to make a solar eclipse—which happens on September 9/10 at midnight, Jerusalem time.

But why does the text describe a “great white throne”? And what does it mean for the sun and moon to be standing hand in hand as the sign of this event? First, this eclipse is only visible from one place on the earth: Antarctica. This great expanse of whiteness is the throne from which alone this heavenly sign can be seen, just above the horizon!

The view from the great white throne

In the time zone of Paraguay, the eclipse takes place shortly after sunset[72] which is the beginning of the biblical day. As noted in the previous article, a moon seen against the sun in a solar eclipse is also a sighted new moon and is another way to mark the beginning of a new month. Thus, September 9/10, 3020 is valid as the first day of the sixth month, as previously expected for the coronation of Jesus and the beginning of the new creation. Another way to express this one-day advancement in the regular sighting of the moon is to say that the moon “stands still.” In this special case, there are two sightings of the new moon, and thus two new moon days—the double day that figures into the coming of Jesus, sought heretofore.[73]

Such a double day was already seen on June 21, 2020 in the ark of the covenant sign, which resulted in the discovery that the July 8, 2020 anniversary of the Carmel Challenge fell on Tammuz 17, the beginning of the three weeks of mourning that lead up to Tisha B’Av, as detailed in The Comet of Elijah. Now we see the Bible pointing to a corresponding double day when the fire of God once and for all devours the despisers of all that is good. Thus, once again, the message of “Elijah” brought through LastCountdown.org and WhiteCloudFarm.org is confirmed to be the final warning of the last “Elijah” for this world:

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

The censer in 2015 Please notice that those who go forth in the spirit and power of Elijah are to HERALD the day of wrath and the second advent of Jesus. On July 8, 2015 when the Carmel Challenge was made five years ago, the planet Mercury was in the hand of Orion where comet NEOWISE has recently been. Mercury was deciphered as the censer of the altar in one of the first heavenly signs that “Elijah” discovered. To see Mercury there at the time of the Carmel Challenge in 2015 and NEOWISE as the censer in 2020 gives a complete picture of the time that was purchased by the sacrifice of Philadelphia:

And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand. And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. (Revelation 8:3–5)

Like bookends surrounding the fourth angel’s message, these two censer signs mentioned in Revelation 8 delineate the message of fire from the heavenly altar of God. Why two signs? When sodomy became the protected law of the land in the US in 2015 and even entered the churches through subtlety as shown through the story of the Carmel Challenge and its aftermath, the prayers of all saints began to come up before God and intercession delayed His wrath. Then all the trumpets and thunders and plagues up to Revelation 18 (and more) were given to the angel, and the knowledge of how those prophecies fulfilled was symbolically gathered in the censer and has now been “cast to the earth”[74] as represented by comet NEOWISE’s close approach.

For the followers of the fourth angel’s message, this great “new wisdom” began to come down from heaven with the discovery of the first trumpet cycle on the eve of February 1, 2014 (i.e. “to them were given seven trumpets,” verse 2 before the censer scene). For the High Sabbath Adventist movement, that represented nothing less than the descent of the Holy Spirit in the latter rain,[75] but unfortunately not many were watered by it at that time, as it was prophesied:

Only those who are living up to the light they have will receive greater light. Unless we are daily advancing in the exemplification of the active Christian virtues, we shall not recognize the manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the latter rain. It may be falling on hearts all around us, but we shall not discern or receive it.—Testimonies to Ministers and Gospel Workers, 507 (1897). {LDE 195.4}

Therefore, all the knowledge of those intervening years was treasured up by the few who worked hard for it and valued it. Now, ready or not, the latter rain is coming down as a sudden deluge. This shows that the fire from heaven, although a real and literal warning, is not necessarily the fire that will kindle on September 3–6, 2020. The coals of the altar being scattered over the city in Ezekiel 10 are indeed the coals of Isaiah:

Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts. Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. (Isaiah 6:5–7)

This anointing by the coals of the altar represents the message of time and sacrifice that has been prepared by God and is now to be preached by people like Isaiah:

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. (Isaiah 6:8)

This is, of course, also the fire of the Holy Ghost, which John the Baptist prophesied, which those who go forth in the spirit and power of Elijah must proclaim:

I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire. (Mathew 3:11–12)

This is the light of the angel of Revelation 18:1 that shall lighten the earth with his glory, and this light is the light of the knowledge of God and what it means to live in righteousness by faith in Jesus Christ.

For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. (Habakkuk 2:14)

This sudden “shocking” transmission of Holy-Ghost fire from person to person was also just described in a prophecy entitled STATIC,[76] where it is represented as a sudden shock moving from person to person at any moment. Have you been shocked by this knowledge today? To whom will you reach out with this knowledge, to shock next?

The way in which the Holy Spirit came upon “Elijah” in 2014 with the message of the trumpet and plague clocks—first upon him and those who first believed, and now upon the 144,000—is a parallel to the two descriptions of the fireball events related by Ellen G. White. Notice the aspect of judgment in the prophetic descriptions of this fire:

I saw an immense ball of fire fall among some beautiful mansions, causing their instant destruction. I heard someone say: “We knew that the judgments of God were coming upon the earth, but we did not know that they would come so soon.” Others, with agonized voices, said: “You knew! Why then did you not tell us? We did not know.”—Testimonies for the Church 9:28 (1909). {LDE 25.1}

Then many fireballs—and please note the “fiery arrows” (i.e. sparks or “static”):

Last Friday morning, just before I awoke, a very impressive scene was presented before me. I seemed to awake from sleep but was not in my home. From the windows I could behold a terrible conflagration. Great balls of fire were falling upon houses, and from these balls fiery arrows were flying in every direction. It was impossible to check the fires that were kindled, and many places were being destroyed. The terror of the people was indescribable. After a time I awoke and found myself at home.—Evangelism, 29 (1906). {LDE 24.3}

Indeed, “Elijah” tried for many years to warn the people, but his warnings fell on deaf ears. For those who now have ears to hear, don’t let such agonized voices be directed to you: “Why did you not tell us!?” The 144,000 must now make every last effort to spread the last warning to all the world for the glory and honor of God, whatever the cost, whether people listen or not. Each one must make his or her decision.

But let us return to the last great wintry sign of the Revelation and ask, “Why did God choose the south pole in the symbolism of the last heavenly sign of the old heavens and the old earth?” Why a pole, and what significance does this have? The Bible helps us in the following passage from Isaiah:

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. (Isaiah 14:12–14)

As a false Christ, Satan situates himself “in the sides of the north.” God is bringing attention to the battle between the king of the north and the king of the south described in Daniel 11, the longest-running continuous prophecy of the whole Bible that culminates in the time of trouble such as never was and the coming of Jesus Christ! How many children do you estimate are swept away by the king of the north through the so-called “white lie” of Santa (namely Satan, just rearranging the letters), a falsehood taught by the very parents they should be able to trust as standing in the place of God for them? His seat is the north pole, where other false Christs like Superman also have their dwelling place.[77]

Were it not for the arctic ice, the north pole would be a vast sea—a fitting location[78] to correspond to the Aquarius god. But by contrast, Antarctica is a real continent under all the ice—terra firma. Satan’s mode of government floats on the unstable sea of feigned equality, but Jesus Christ is the solid Rock who came to show that God lives to serve, and our love to Him is entirely warranted because He first loved us.

Screenshot of Marvel characters This reveals once again the weakness in Satan’s kingdom: it is built on the turbulent sea of people’s emotions rather than on truth and love. How many Marvel superheroes exist as false Christs to enthrall the children (of all ages) today? Even the name of the company “Marvel” is an apocalyptic term (Strong’s G2296) describing how the people worship the beast and his image.[79]

And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered [Strong’s: MARVELED] after the beast. (Revelation 13:3)

And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? (From Revelation 17:7)

Countless superhero films have been released over the years, and recently the characters have been coming together (“assembling”)[80] from all over the Marvel Universe in films such as The Avengers[81] (released in 2012). Such films and games have filled the minds of the generation that Jesus warned with these words:

Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. (Matthew 24:23–24)

The pictures that are set into motion and made believable through life-like films convey a belief structure that shapes the mind to accept demonic powers as benevolent saviors. This is the reincarnation of ancient mythology, painted and carved not in temples of stone, but into the minds and programming of the synapses of this generation.

And who are the heroes and heroines of today? Gays, lesbians, cross-dressers; those who practice abomination in the sight of God are lifted up and idolized as good and respectable leaders who are worthy not only of acceptance, but of worship.

But it is not so with God.

But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. (Mark 10:6–9)

While promoting same-sex relationships, the world also denigrates marriage between a man and a woman, casting it in the worst possible light. This can be seen, for example, in the media’s coverage of the divorce of (Pirate) Johnny Depp and (Aquaman princess) Amber Heard.[82] This is just a recent example in the news, but the onslaught against biblical marriage has been raging in all forms of media.

The heavenly sign above speaks to this, and indeed those few words about the great white throne have deep implications when combined with the heavenly sign. As in the great woman sign of September 2017, there are now three additional stars in Leo, bringing the count to twelve, like the crown of the woman of Revelation 12, again indicating a coronation event.

A comparison of crowns

But who is crowned in this scene? Venus, representing Jesus as the Morning Star, stands as the head of Virgo (the church, His body). It is Christ and the church, united, who will together administer the Kingdom of God. It is a marriage—not a same-sex union, but a husband and wife. It is Satan’s design to equate the human and divine, making man “as gods,” but it is the design of God, where the weaker created vessels are able to do all things through His power. Each member of the body of Christ will have his part in the affairs of the universe.

The 144,000 who have overcome sin, and in whom the Father sees His Son, will be the antidote to inoculate myriads of galaxies against the virus of sin. If ever another created being has the thought like Lucifer to cherish rebellion in his heart, one of the 144,000 will be dispatched—like the white blood cells of the immune system—to speak with such a one. The voice of one who was part of the last generation on earth and lived through (and fought through) the result and consequences of sin, will plead and expound the love of a God who was willing to lay down His life for eternity for even one soul, to save him or her from such a course. The remonstrance of one of the 144,000 will be genuine and heeded because he—as a created being who was fallen, weak with six millennia of sin—will have first-hand experience in the power of redemption that changed him from a selfish sinner to one who could act in sacrificial love to save others. As the Holy City travels from galaxy to galaxy, from Sabbath to Sabbath, the 144,000 will have the chance to teach all the universe[83] and show them the love of God as never before, to keep them in the way of life, and to keep His love pulsing throughout all time and space.

Satan will not live to see the anniversary of 9/11 in that year, 3020. He brought down the Twin Towers as a show against God’s twin institutions, but his belligerence has backfired. Instead of erecting himself at the top of a new universal government, God’s design has been vindicated by those who overcame Satan through the blood of the Lamb.

The greatest Sacrifice This blood, which flowed from Jesus’ side, is symbolized by Jupiter’s great red spot. Jupiter lays on the altar in Taurus on this day, emphasizing that the victory is the result of His selfless sacrifice on the cross, which is the reason why He is worthy to be crowned. And on that day—May 25, AD 31—Mercury stood by as a picture of Gabriel, the second anointed one who was a first-hand witness to the Savior’s sacrifice.

The films of recent years have made a point to show dysfunctional marriages ending in divorce to insinuate that God’s design is somehow flawed. But if the wife—if the church—is ready to submit to her Lord at any cost, then she can overcome like He overcame, and together their shared sacrificial love can multiply in the hearts of the children of God and stop the downward spiral of sin and save many from its ruin.

Will she humble herself? Will she let go of her dreams of an easy ride to heaven, put aside comforts and labor in the work God has for her, whatever the cost?

If so, then on the first day of the new creation, when Jesus Christ is crowned as Ruler of the universe, she will reign together with Him in perfect unity as His body—His helpmate. There will be no more marriage in heaven[84] because marriage was given to mankind for the purpose of pointing forward to the great union of Christ and His church.

He referred them to the blessed days of Eden when God pronounced all things “very good.” Then marriage and the Sabbath had their origin, twin institutions for the glory of God in the benefit of humanity. Then, as the Creator joined the hands of the holy pair in wedlock, saying, A man shall “leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one,” He enunciated the law of marriage for all the children of Adam to the close of time. That which the eternal Father Himself had pronounced good was the law of highest blessing and development for man. {AH 340.4}

In this last heavenly sign, Mars is held in the hand of Virgo, symbolizing that the war has been won. The palm of victory is in hand, as all sin has been destroyed along with its originator. The good grain, symbolized by the spike of wheat, is free to flourish without the tempter sowing his bad seed and choking it with weeds anymore. The church militant has become the victorious fruit.

We have come to the end of the heavenly signs (by definition, per the Bible) and we have come to the end of the deciphering of the heavenly symbolism of the mystery of God before the closing of the seventh trumpet. And as it was written, so it must be:

Servants of God, with their faces lighted up and shining with holy consecration, will hasten from place to place to proclaim the message from heaven. By thousands of voices, all over the earth, the warning will be given. Miracles will be wrought, the sick will be healed, and signs and wonders will follow the believers.—The Great Controversy, 611, 612 (1911). {LDE 203.2}

The unraveling of these last signs began on the eve of July 12, 2020—a date full of meaning—and this very last sign points to that date again the following year, as time is perceived by the saints. It is both the anniversary of Brother John’s baptism and the birthday of his wife, illustrating a godly marriage of man and woman that combines the two sides of the Orion formula: 7•12 + 7•12 = 168, which is the formula found in the symbolism of Jesus’ oath in Daniel 12:7 that began to unlock the understanding of the Orion clock that has increased to a mountain of light. The date is September 10, 3020, but to the saints it only feels like “July 12, 2021,” one year from the beginning of the revelation of these last of Revelation’s signs.

Seeing oneself in comparison to what one might have become by working together with Christ, one might experience feelings of regret for lost opportunities, imagine that their sins are too great to be forgiven, or question whether they have fallen too far from God to be restored. Perhaps it would be too humiliating in the sight of others to admit that one was not as good as they pretended to be, or that the example they had given to others was not the example of Christ. One might rather hide themselves in the darkness of eternal oblivion than admit how wrong they have been. But this is not what the Lord desires.

But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. (Matthew 9:13)

The Lord of love desires only that you be broken in repentance, to turn from your bad ways and follow Him in the way of life, “showing fruits meet for repentance,” as taught by Paul:

Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision: But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance. (Acts 26:19–20)

It is the hope of the publishing team that this series has provided some help for the 144,000 to encourage them in their work during the most difficult time of earth’s history, and to give some hints and insights into how to carry forward and proclaim the truth God has incrementally revealed according to the principle of progressive revelation. It would be a mistake to deny God’s past leading, yet one should not be afraid to improve upon it as the future unfolds, building upon the sure foundation (i.e., without doing violence to the old light). In this way, one must keep moving forward, always walking in the light, ever growing and never failing to gain a higher conception of God’s marvelous plans—and one’s own role in them.

You have the victory in your hands; just submit your own wrong beliefs to the Lord. Then SHOUT the Victory Shout and MARCH IN as Babylon crumbles! Spare only those who have the scarlet line in their windows!

May God be with you. Maranatha!
