The New World Order Will Reign For One Hour Which Means 15 Days

“It is often the case that trouble is greater in anticipation than in reality; but this is not true of the crisis before us. The most vivid presentation cannot reach the magnitude of the ordeal.”—{GC 621, 622 (1911)}.

"Beware of procrastination. Do not put off the work of forsaking your sins and seeking purity of heart through Jesus. Here is where thousands upon thousands have erred to their eternal loss. I will not here dwell upon the shortness and uncertainty of life; but there is a terrible danger—a danger not sufficiently understood—in delaying to yield to the pleading voice of God's Holy Spirit, in choosing to live in sin; for such this delay really is. Sin, however small it may be esteemed, can be indulged in only at the peril of infinite loss. What we do not overcome, will overcome us and work out our destruction" Steps to Christ, p. 32.2 (Ellen G. White).


"But of that day (year) and hour (15 days =7th plague=and NWO) knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only" Matthew 24:36.

List of 90 Bible verses that mention "hour" here.

"Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour (7th plague lasts 15 days) as ye think not the Son of man cometh" Matthew 24:44.

"The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of" Matthew 24:50.

Watch with Me...could you not [be awake] one hour?' Matt 26:38-41.

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

Because you have kept my admonition to endure steadfastly, I will also keep you from the hour (15 days=New World Order) of testing that is about to come on the whole world to test those who live on the earth" Revelation 3:10 NET BIBLE translation.

"Martin Luther, and other reformers, arose in the strength of God, and with the Word and Spirit, made mighty strides in the Reformation. The greatest fault we can find in the Reformation is, the Reformers stopped reforming. Had they gone on, and onward, till they had left the last vestige of Papacy behind, such as natural immortality, sprinkling, the trinity, and Sunday-keeping, the church would now be free from her unscriptural errors." (James White, February 7, 1856, Review & Herald, vol. 7, no. 19, page 148, par. 26).

“The third angel's message was, and still is, a WARNING to the saints to "hold fast," and not go back, and "receive" the marks (of the beast=TRINITY=teaches immortality of the Soul, SUNDAY WORSHIP) which the virgin band got rid of, during the second angel's cry (1841-1846)” A Word to the "Little Flock" JAMES WHITE, Topsham, Maine April 21, 1847.

Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.

1 Thessalonians 5:4
But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.

Watch with Me...could you not [be awake] one hour?' Matt 26:38-41.


Backslidden 501c3 SDA church exposed...The "MARKS" (of the beast=Papacy) "the VIRGIN BAND GOD RID OF" were "Sunday keeping", "the Trinity", "natural immortality", sprinkling.... and baptism INTO the faith, instead of Baptism INTO A church! The last church's mission is about the true Sabbath and the True God, and about the Soul that sinneth it SHALL die....repent and return to your first love. 

"Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein" Jeremiah 6:16 KJV.

THE THINGS SDA PIONEERS GOT RID OF - or reformed on - were SUNDAY worship and false god worship... immortality of the Soul...read the two quotes above again...and is what the modern 501c3 SDA Jesuit leaders have adopted AGAIN! See more on how the SDA church has adopted Sunday worship here.

"Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore" Ezekiel 37:26.

Isaiah 59:21
"As for Me, this is My covenant with them," says the LORD: "My Spirit which is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your offspring, nor from the mouth of your offspring's offspring," says the LORD, "from now and forever."

The 144,000 are raised back to life - those who have died under the Third Angel's Message, keeping the Sabbath to watch ONE HOUR or 15 days, at the start of the 7th plague, is my understanding based on my studies to date. The New World Order (NWO) is also put into place at the beginning of the 7th plague (Rev 17:12; Revelation 18:17).

144,000 Will Be Called up in Special Resurrection along with those also who pierced Christ by the voice of the Father of Jesus (causes great earthquake), and those who especially hated His Son.

The VOICE of God speaking caused a great earthquake to happen when God raised Christ from the tomb. And many others were raised up with Christ at that time also. When the voice of God speaks giving the covenant of peace and the time and hour of Jesus 2nd coming...

"The graves were opened, and those who had died in faith under the third angel's message, keeping the Sabbath, came forth from their dusty beds, glorified, to hear the covenant of peace that God was to make with those who had kept His lawEarly Writings, p. 285.1.

under the Third Angel's Message, keeping the Sabbath: (investigative judgment of SDA's to see who would become a part of the 144,000 like Queen Esther was chosen as the remnant is chosen: "Only the cases of the professed people of God are considered at the investigative judgment" {GC 480.1}.)

To the husband of a sister who died under the third angel’s message, Ellen White wrote:
“Dear Brother:
“I hardly know what to say to you. The news of your wife’s death was to me overwhelming. I could hardly believe
it and can hardly believe it now. God gave me a view last Sabbath night which I will write. . . .“I saw that she was sealed and would come up at the voice of God and stand upon the earth, and would be with the 144,000. I saw we need not mourn for her; she would rest in the time of trouble, and all that we could mourn for was our loss in being deprived of her company. I saw her death would result in good” 2SM 263.

As foretold in the Scriptures, the ministration of Christ in the Most Holy place began at the termination of the prophetic days in 1844. the words of the revelator apply to this time. "The temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in His temple the ark of His testament." At the beginning of the work of the investigative judgment, when Christ entered the most holy place, the door in heaven was opened, and the law of God was seen as the foundation of His throne. It was immediately after the bitter disappointment of 1844, when earnest souls were still searching the Scriptures, that the sacredness of the law was revealed. As the Decalogue was presented, a special glory shone about the Fourth Commandment. The seal of the law stood out as if written in letters of fire, and a new significance was given to the measuring reed which the angel offered. The fuller significance of the trampling under foot of the law, and the thinking to change the times and laws of Jehovah by an earthly power, filled the people of God with reverential awe; and again the two witnesses were exalted to heaven. The sealing work began at this very time, and those who were looking heavenward, saw the light streaming from that open door. Upon those to whom these rays are shining, the sealing angel places the mark of God. This sealed company make up the one hundred and forty-four thousand, who are a part of the host for whom the "four and twenty elders' are now waiting. p. 206. 

Revelation 8:13
And as I observed, I heard an eagle flying overhead, calling in a loud voice, "Woe! Woe! Woe to those who dwell on the earth, because of the trumpet blasts about to be sounded by the remaining three angels!" Three angels blasts: Rev 14:6-12,

The Seventh Plague and the Special Resurrection

There is a mighty earthquake, "such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great" (Rev. 16:17, 18). The firmament appears to open and shut. The glory from the throne of God seems flashing through. The mountains shake like a reed in the wind, and ragged rocks are scattered on every side. . . . The whole earth heaves and swells like the waves of the sea. Its surface is breaking up. Its very foundations seem to be giving way. Mountain chains are sinking. Inhabited islands disappear. The seaports that have become like Sodom for wickedness are swallowed up by the angry waters. . . . Great hailstones, every one "about the weight of a talent," are doing their work of destruction (verses 19, 21) . . . .

Graves are opened, and "many (not all=special resurection) of them that sleep in the dust of the earth . . . awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt" (Dan. 12:2). All who have died in the faith of the third  angel's message come forth from the tomb glorified to hear God's covenant of peace with those who have (p272) kept His law. "They also which pierced Him" (Rev. 1:7), those that mocked and derided Christ's dying agonies, and the most violent opposers of His truth and His people, are raised to behold Him in His glory, and to see the honour placed upon the loyal and obedient.--GC 636, 637 (1911).

God Announces the Time of Christ's Coming Dark, heavy clouds came up and clashed against each other. The atmosphere parted and rolled back. Then we could look up through the open space in Orion, whence came the voice of God.--EW 41 (1851). 


The Reaction of Those Who Pierced Him - who are raised at the beginning of the 7th plague, ONE HOUR or 15 days before Christ's 2nd Advent. The 144,000 who have died under the third angel's message, keeping the Sabbath are raised, some are already alive to hear the day and hour of Christ's 2nd Coming:

Those who have acted the most prominent part in the rejection and crucifixion of Christ come forth to see Him as He is, and those who have rejected Christ come up and see the saints glorified, and it is at  that time that the saints are changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, and are caught up to meet their Lord in the air. The very ones who placed upon Him the purple robe and put the crown of thorns upon His brow, and those who put the nails through His hands and feet, look upon Him and bewail.--9MR 252 (1886).

They remember how His love was slighted and His compassion abused. They think of how Barabbas, a  murderer and a robber, was chosen in His stead, how Jesus was crowned with thorns and scourged and crucified, how in the hours of His agony on the cross the priests and rulers taunted Him, saying, "Let Him come down from the cross, and we will believe Him. He saved others, Himself He cannot save." All the insult and despite offered to Christ, all the suffering caused to His disciples, will be as fresh in their recollection as when the satanic deeds were done. The voice which they heard so often in entreaty and persuasion will again sound in their ears. Every tone of gracious solicitation will vibrate as distinctly in their ears as when the Saviour spoke in the synagogues and on the street. Then those who pierced Him will call on the rocks and mountains to fall on them and hide them from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb.--Letter 131, 1900.


Soon we heard the voice of God[1. THE VOICE OF GOD IS HEARD REPEATEDLY DURING THE PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING CHRIST'S RETURN. SEE THE GREAT CONTROVERSY, PP. 632, 633, 636, 638, 640, 641.] 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.--EW 15 (1851).

As God spoke the day and the hour of Jesus' coming, and delivered the everlasting covenant to His people, He spoke one sentence, and then paused, while the words were rolling through the earth. The Israel of God stood with their eyes fixed upward, listening to the words as they came from the mouth of Jehovah and rolled through the earth like peals of loudest thunder. It was awfully solemn. At the end of every sentence the saints shouted, "Glory! Hallelujah!" Their countenances were lighted up with the glory of God, and they shone with glory as did the face of Moses when he came down from Sinai. The wicked could not look upon them for the glory. And when the never-ending blessing was pronounced on those who had honoured God in keeping His Sabbath holy, there was a mighty shout of victory over the beast and over his image.--EW 285, 286 (1858).

I have not the slightest knowledge as to the time  spoken by the voice of God. I heard the hour proclaimed, but had no remembrance of that hour after I came out of vision. Scenes of such thrilling, solemn interest passed before me as no language is adequate to describe. It was all a living reality to me, for close upon this scene appeared the great white cloud, upon which was seated the Son of man.--1SM 76 (1888).

These are raised 7 days AFTER the New World Order starts? I think so. Learn more about this here.

Here are the statements about , "a number of days" for the plagues to fall:
 
"And I saw a flaming cloud come where Jesus stood. Then Jesus . . . took His place on the cloud which carried Him to the East, where it first appeared to the saints on earth--a small black cloud which was the sign of the Son of man. While the cloud was passing from the Holiest to the East, which took a number of days, the synagogue of Satan worshipped at the saints' feet."  {Mar 287.8}
 
And from another place. 
 
"And I saw a flaming cloud come where Jesus stood and he laid off his priestly garment and put on his kingly robe, took his place on the cloud which carried him to the east where it first appeared to the saints on earth, a small black cloud, which was the sign of the Son of Man. While the cloud was passing from the Holiest to the east which took a number of days, the Synagogue of Satan worshiped at the saints feet." Ellen G. Harmon  {DS, March 14, 1846 par. 2}

https://sites.google.com/site/theendtimewarning/interesting-meaning-of-words-in-certain-verses

Then there is this one:
 
 
"Then I saw Jesus lay off His priestly attire and clothe Himself with His most kingly robes. Upon His head were many crowns, a crown within a crown. Surrounded by the angelic host, He left heaven. The plagues were falling upon the inhabitants of the earth."  {EW 281.1}  {1SG 200.1}

The "Close of Probation" is determined by the time of The Day of Atonement in the Hebrew Sanctuary services.  In 1844, Jesus began the Judgment on October 22, which was a Day of Atonement,  and Jesus will declare, "It is finished", on a Day of Atonement in the year that He returns because, "Type must meet its Anti-type at the time pointed out in the symbolic service" of the Sanctuary.  This is proven by the fact that at His crucifixion and resurrection, Jesus specifically observed the Spring feasts with exact attention to the day and time the feast was to take place!  See the book, The Great Controversy PP. 399 - 400.
 
It is only five days from the Day of Atonement to the First Day of the Feast of Tabernacles and that is how quickly the plagues will fall in different parts of the world and the end will come!  On the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles we begin our, "seven day journey"  to Heaven and on the "Eighth Day" which is "the last great day of the feast", we will sit down to the Heavenly Banquet" with Christ and all the redeemed, the angels and beings from the un-fallen worlds!  This is what Ellen White, Haskell and other of the "pioneers" believed and taught!

According to events described preceding this statement of "silence in heaven for half an hour", I think this is the time when all the beings of heaven come with Jesus to deliver His Elect!

Revelation 19:7 "Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready."


THE JUDGMENT PASSES


TO THE CASES OF THE LIVING


The investigative judgment


passes to the cases of the living


when the mark and seal begin to


be given (6T 130; 5T 526). In the


judgment, one person is retained


in the book of life while another


receives the mark of separation


(TM 234-235).


The judgment will pass to the


living at the time of the National


Sunday Law (5T 526; 6T 130). Each


Will be judged by the light he has


received, accepted, or rejected


(LDE 216-217; GC 605; 5BC 1145).


Revelation 12:6 "The woman (remnant/144,000/faithful city of God) fled into the wilderness." "The church of Christ found refuge in seclusion and obscurity. Thus says the prophet: "The woman (pure virgin church of truth) fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her (truth) there a thousand two hundred and three-score days." Revelation 12:6." The Great Controversy, p. 54.2  "These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth" Revelation 14:4. David Hides From Saul: "On his return he was to hide in a field not far from the banqueting hall, for three days (see Hosea 6:2) absenting himself from the presence of the king." FROM ETERNITY PAST, PAGE 476, see Hosea 6:2 that on the third day we will LIVE in the Sight of God because of the righteous scepter (Christ) that is held out to us by God the King of Kings. 

He was to hide in a field not far from the banqueting hall, for three days (see Hosea 6:2) absenting himself from the presence of the king. "And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him." Matthew 25:6. Exodus 19:16 "On the morning of the third day there was thunder and lightning, with a thick cloud over the mountain, and a very loud trumpet blast (compare to 2nd advent trumpets). Everyone in the camp trembled."

Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. (Remember: probation closes for the house of God FIRST)

Acts 20:9 Seated in a window was a young man named Eutychus, who was sinking into a deep sleep as Paul talked on and on. When he was sound asleep, he fell to the ground from the third story and was picked up dead.


11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. [Then I was shown a company who were howling in agony. On their garments was written in large characters, “Thou art weighed in the balance, and found wanting.” I asked who this company were. The angel said, “These are they who have once kept the Sabbath and have given it up.” (professed militant modern Adventists who worship the trinity (1st 3 commandments) and break the Sabbath (4th commandment)) I heard them cry with a loud voice, “We have believed in thy coming, and taught it with energy.” And while they were speaking, their eyes would fall upon their garments and see the writing, and then they would wail aloud. I saw that they had drunk of the deep waters, and fouled the residue with their feet—trodden the Sabbath under foot, and that is why they were weighed in the balance and found wanting." A Sketch of the Christian Experience and Views of Ellen G. White, p. 19.1]

13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

We are not far from the gospel feast - the house of the bridegroom - hiding in the wilderness being nourished and refreshed by truth - perfecting and testing messages - worship God only - come out of all churches - sent to us through Jesus from God the Father.

"the truth as treasure hid in a field." Testimony Treasures Volume 2, p. 309.1

“The kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.” PUR May 18, 1911, par. 17

"toilers in a field which calls for self-denying labor;" HM July 1, 1891, par. 5

"Then I saw that Jesus would not leave the Most Holy Place until every case was decided either for salvation or destruction, and that the wrath of God could not come until Jesus had finished his work in the Most Holy Place, laid off his priestly attire and clothed himself with the garments of vengeance. Then Jesus will step out from between the Father and man, and God will keep silence no longer; but pour out his wrath on those who have rejected his truth (Jesus is the TRUTH, He said "I am the Truth" John 14:6). I saw that the anger of the nations (Great Brittian, France, Russia & United States of North America per Joesph Bates), the wrath of God, and the time to judge the dead, were separate events, one following the other. I saw that Michael had not stood up, and that the time of trouble, such as never was, had not yet commenced. The nations are now getting angry, but when our High Priest has finished his work in the Sanctuary, he will stand up, put on the garments of vengeance, and then the seven last plagues will be poured out. I saw that the four angels would hold the four winds until Jesus’ work was done in the Sanctuary, and then will come the seven last plaguesThese plagues enraged the wicked against the righteous, and they thought that we had brought them down upon them, and if they could rid the earth of us, then the plagues would be stayed. A decree went forth to slay the saints, which caused them to cry day and night for deliverance. This was the time of Jacob’s troubleThen all the saints cried out with anguish of spirit, and were delivered by the voice of God. Then the 144,000 triumphed. Their faces were lighted up with the glory of God. Then I was shown a company who were howling in agony. On their garments was written in large characters, “Thou art weighed in the balance, and found wanting.” I asked who this company were. The angel said, “These are they who have once kept the Sabbath and have given it up.” (professed Adventists who worship the trinity and break the Sabbath) I heard them cry with a loud voice, “We have believed in thy coming, and taught it with energy.” And while they were speaking, their eyes would fall upon their garments and see the writing, and then they would wail aloud.

White, p. 19.1

My brethren, the value of the evidences of truth that we have received during the past half century, is above estimate. These evidences are as treasure hidden in a field. Search for them. Study the Bible truths that for fifty years have been calling us out from the world. Present this evidence in clear, plain lines. Those who have been long in the truth and those who have recently received the truth must now dig for the buried heavenly treasure. Let every man work to the point. Study the word of God. Revive the evidences given in the past. “Search the Scriptures,” Christ said; “for in them ye think ye have eternal life, and they are they which testify of Me.”

Those who stand before the people as teachers of truth are to grapple with great themes. They are not to occupy precious time in talking of trivial subjects. Let them study the Word, and preach the Word. Let the Word be in their hands as a sharp, two-edged sword. Let it testify to past truths and show what is to be in the future are to shape our lives and that by us are to be proclaimed to the world. We are to keep abreast of the times, bearing a clear, intelligent testimony, guided by the unction of the Holy Spirit.—Manuscript 31, 1906. pp. 5, 6. (“Be Vigilant,” April 2, 1906.)




Hail, the seventh plague of Revelation 16, will end the rebellion against God.

"And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.

And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent (The heavy common talent, used in New Testament times, was 58.9 kilograms (130 lb).): and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great (Revelation 16:17-21).

Depiction of the seventh plague by John Martin. Source: Wikimedia Commons.

The final plague of hail will destroy the nations of the earth. Babylon will disintegrate into its three components. The greatest earthquake in history will destroy the last life on earth. Huge blocks of hail weighing over 100 pounds will end the rebellion. No one will be left. In the midst of this confusion, Christ’s people will be taken away.

In Job 38:22-23, we have a reference to this war of hail:

Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?

Christ is the victor in this conflict:

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS (Revelation 19:11-16).

The redeemed will shout for joy when their conflict ends, because they will be taken to the heavenly Canaan. 

And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation (Isaiah 25:9). 


In Revelation, John sees the heavenly temple (144,000 who by Faith go into the Most Holy Place) fill with smoke (Presence of God). The heavenly temple service ends (Jesus stops mediating = He is filling His People with His Promised Gift, the Gift of His perfect life, His "holy" Spirit) and probation is closed: “And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple (God The Father through the Son), till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled” (Revelation 15:8).

For six thousand years Satan has been causing suffering and catastrophe on this planet. He has tempted and snared millions, but during the millennium Satan and his angels will be the only living creatures to remain on the earth. They will have to meditate on all the destruction and waste that they have caused. There will be no one left to tempt and deceive because all those who did not choose to make Jesus their Saviour will be destroyed by the brightness of His coming and remain dead until Jesus returns to recreate the earth

Revelation 20:2-3,5 tells us this:

And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 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. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished.

What John witnessed in this vision was symbolic. He saw an actual pit in vision but shutting up the dragon in the pit was symbolic for binding Satan in chains of circumstance as his activities come to a halt. The earth will be in a state of complete desolation and darkness until Jesus comes after the thousand years to recreate it (see Isaiah 65:17 and Revelation 21:1-2)


Matthew 25:21
His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Enter into the joy of your master!'

Luke 12:43
Blessed is that servant whom his master finds doing so when he returns.

GOD'S WORD® Translation
I can guarantee this truth: He will put that servant in charge of all his property. 
Luke 12:44

Watch with Me...could you not [be awake] one hour?' Matt 26:38-41.

They give their voice/words = power to the Vatican Sunday Law and look to Pope Francis to lead them in this New World Order by the United Nations.

She represents the apostate protestant 501c3 churches seeking power from the beast (Vatican/Papacy/Jesuit Pope Francis). These horns represent kingdoms of divided Rome. One hour would represent 15 days. Going by 360 days in a Jewish year. 124th of 360 is 15 days.

2 Th 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

The 7th and last Pope, Benedict XVI, turns over the throne of Peter to Satan, and the world worships Satan believing him to be Christ.

And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, Revelation 18:9

Lament over Babylon
Revelation 18:8 Therefore her plagues will come in one day, death and misery and famine; and she will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her (Papacy and all who believe and do her doctrines or teachings; for example: Sunday Sacredness; Trinity; Immortality of the soul; Eucharist; confession of sins to a man instead of confessing and forsaking sins to God alone in the name of His Son while claiming John 20:23 in the Most Holy Place aka Throne Room of God and His Son in the Heavenly Sanctuary in the Third Heaven = you will not be meet for inheritance unless your thoughts are centered upon God and His Son).” 9Then the kings of the earth who committed sexual immorality and lived in luxury with her will weep and wail at the sight of the smoke rising from the fire that consumes her. 10In fear of her torment, they will stand at a distance and cry out: “Woe, woe to the great city, the mighty city of Babylon! For in a single hour (15 Biblical days = Jesus comes the 15th day) your judgment has come.”…

And the smoke of their torment will rise forever and ever. Day and night there will be no rest for those who worship the beast (Papacy) and its image (all 501c3 church denominations who believe and teach papacy doctrines like Sunday Worship; trinity worship; immortality of the soul; Eucharist etc), or for anyone who receives the mark (Sunday/Trinity Worship) of its name (teachings of mystery per Rev 17:5 "5 And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.")."

"The substitution of the laws of men for the law of God, the exaltation, by merely human authority, of Sunday in place of the Bible Sabbath, is the last act in the drama. When this substitution becomes universal, God will reveal Himself. He will arise in His majesty to shake terribly the earth. He will come out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the world for their iniquity, and the earth shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain."—Testimonies for the Church 7:141.

When the Mark of the Beast Is Received

No one has yet received the mark of the beast.—Evangelism, 234 (1899). (happens at Sunday law = perhaps around June 26, 2016) BECAUSE twins are BORN close together. The twin institutions setup during creation week - when THEY are made VOID by the law of the land, especially here in America, because America is the former PROTESTANT NATION - who has had much opportunity and freedom to practice truth but have chosen the beasts doctrines and those who once protested these doctrines with their blood have now accepted these false doctrines; whose 501c3 church denominations RIDE the First beast (Papacy's doctrines and adopt the Papacy's doctrines, especially the trinity doctrine from which springs ALL the other false doctrines...when the twin institutions are made VOID by LAW in America, THEN the Lord will rise to shake terribly the earth.... so when same sex laws - last June 26, 2015 make void God's law of marriage between a man and a woman...which was instituted on the 6th day of creation, Friday, then the 7th day Sabbath, made one day later, or in prophetic time, a day equals a year principle, would mean that the last twin of making void the law of God, the 4th Commandment, the Sabbath Commandment is abolished by man's law to force the people to obey man instead of God, THEN we are who have cleansed our bodies (by obedience to the 4th Commandment = cleanses your body of Sin) will be made perfect for eternity, we are to go out and give the Sabbath more fully to the world...then the New World Order when it is put into effect, through the United Nations, all ten Kingdoms will reign together for 1 hour or 15 prophetic days - 124th of a Biblical calendar year is 360 days which comes to 15 days). Can you see how everything is falling into place QUICKLY? Jesus is almost to come! We must learn Bible verse promises! Claim them in the Most Holy Place by faith going into the Heavenly Sanctuary in the Third Heaven by faith..."Let us then approach God's throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need" Heb 4:16.. here is a video telling HOW to do that... enter into the Most Holy Place by faith.... faith in Jesus, having the Spirit of Christ IN YOU:


Hebrews 10:19
Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus,


Hebrews 3:1
Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest.


Hebrews 9:25
Nor did he enter heaven to offer himself again and again, the way the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood that is not his own.


Hebrews 9:7
But only the high priest entered the inner room, and that only once a year, and never without blood, which he offered for himself and for the sins the people had committed in ignorance.

Hebrews 10:18
And where these have been forgiven, sacrifice for sin is no longer necessary.

Hebrews 10:35
So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.

1 Peter 3:18
For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit.

1 John 2:28
And now, dear children, continue in him, so that when he appears we may be confident and unashamed before him at his coming.

1 John 3:21
Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God


Ephesians 3:12
In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.

Hebrews 3:6
But Christ is faithful as the Son over God's house. And we are his house, if indeed we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory.

Hebrews 7:19
(for the law made nothing perfect), and a better hope is introduced, by which we draw near to God.


Romans 3:22
This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile,

Romans 5:2
through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God.

2 Corinthians 3:4
Such confidence we have through Christ before God.

Ephesians 2:18
For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.


John 15:7 "If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you".

"He who is imbued with the Spirit of Christ abides in Christ" The Faith I Live By, p. 64.5 (Ellen G. White).

"The Spirit of Christ—true faith." ST April 7, 1887, par. 5

imbued (impregnated with the Seed of God) Words are as seeds which are planted.

My WORDS are Spirit and they ARE LIFE! The WORDS or PROMISES of GOD are ACTIVE, full of LIFE giving POWER. Christ IS the Wisdom and POWER of God! He IS the WORD OF GOD! Christ is the thoughts of God made audible to us!

Claim Bible verse promises while "coming"; following; going out of apostacy into the secret place of the Most High, into the Body of Christ, who IS IN the Body of His Father per John 14:20. 

Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.


God has called His church in this day, as He called ancient Israel, to stand as a light in the earth. By the mighty cleaver of truth, the messages of the first, second, and third angels, He has separated them from the (501c3 non-profit/tax-exempt) churches and from the world to bring them into a sacred nearness to Himself (into the Most Holy Place per John 14:20 = Hebrews 10:19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus,). He has made them the depositaries of His law and has committed to them the great truths of prophecy for this time. Like the holy oracles committed to ancient Israel, these are a sacred trust to be communicated to the world. The three angels of Revelation 14 represent the people who accept the light of God's messages and go forth as His agents to sound the warning throughout the length and breadth of the earth. Christ declares to His followers: "Ye are the light of the world." To every soul that accepts Jesus the cross of Calvary speaks: "Behold the worth of the soul: 'Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.'" Nothing is to be permitted to hinder this work. It is the all-important work for time; it is to be far-reaching as eternity.” 5T 455-6 



I believe this wilderness (seclusion and obscurity) or little time of trouble started March 19, 2013...and lasts until Sept 19, 2016, which then gets worse, and turns into Jacobs time of trouble, around Aug 5, 2016 - because TIME IS CUT SHORT IN RIGHTEOUSNESS - by 25 days - the 42 months (Rev 13:5) is cut short by 25 days because the first Dark Ages was cut short by 25 years - so compare the years to literal days now during this dual fulfillment of the Dark Ages - cut short by 25 days comes to Aug 5, 2016 - if this Jesuit Pope Francis is the last Pope - black pope because of the black Jesuit Robes (character/garment he wears/literally and figuratively = dark sentences = inveigle means to entice, lure, or ensnare by flattery or artful talk or inducements for example: "Public Square" and "common good") when the Vatican is destroyed by a nuclear bomb??? just guessing there... but the ten kings and the pope are given power to rule the world for 1 hour which is 15 days... 124th of Jewish Biblical calender of 360 days.


JudeKing James Version (KJV)

Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:

Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.

Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

“The third angel's message was, and still is, a WARNING to the saints to "hold fast," and not go back, and "receive" the marks (of the beast) which the virgin band got rid of, during the second angel's cry.” A Word to the "Little Flock" JAMES WHITE, Topsham, Maine April 21, 1847.

"Martin Luther, and other reformers, arose in the strength of God, and with the Word and Spirit, made mighty strides in the Reformation. The greatest fault we can find in the Reformation is, the Reformers stopped reforming. Had they gone on, and onward, till they had left the last vestige of Papacy behind, such as natural immortality, sprinkling, the trinity, and Sunday-keeping, the church would now be free from her unscriptural errors." (James White, February 7, 1856, Review & Herald, vol. 7, no. 19, page 148, par. 26).

Warning to Come OUT of All Churches and reasons WHY and GO BY FAITH INTO THE MOST HOLY PLACE IN THE THIRD HEAVEN: "But they are to understand His work, and to follow Him by faith as He goes in before God. It is in this sense that they are said to go in to the marriageGC1888, 427.1

144,000's Message: "The Commandments of God, and the Faith of Jesus"

  Adventists! Become a Bride of Christ or Wise Virgin NOW! 

For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. (God has saved Adventists out of doctrinal heresy, but the Advent movement backslide by 1845 to become Laodicean which means to not be doers of the Commandments of God)

And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication (having sex outside of wedlock), and going after strange flesh (Leviticus 18:22; 

Leviticus 20:13), are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.

Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.

10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.

11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear (believing and doing doctrines of papacy without knowledge of God = knowledge of God = fear = reverence for God): clouds they are without water (people without a message of the latter rain, dark clouds are full of rain/latter rain/loud cry of the Third Angel), carried about of winds (strife/every wind of doctrine); trees whose fruit withereth (501c3 SDA's who are offshoots from historical Adventism movement teachings today = all 501c3 churches CANNOT speak or teach the truth today because they are GOVERNMENT churches who will have their non-profit status revoked retroactive to their filing dates and all good confiscated and back taxes due if they break their contract with the government by discriminating against a minority group like LBGT people/women's ordination etc), without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;

13 Raging waves of the sea (people), foaming out their own shame; wandering stars (brightest stars to go out of the truth), to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.

14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints (body of Christ aka 144,000 who are in the express image of Christ by claiming Bible verse promises while in the Most Holy Place per John 14:20; Hebrews 10:19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus,"The proclamation, “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh,” in the summer of 1844, led thousands to

 expect the immediate advent of the Lord. At the appointed time the Bridegroom came, not to the earth, as the people expected, but to the Ancient of Days in heaven, to the marriage, the reception of His kingdom. “They that were ready went in with Him to the marriage: and the door was shut.” They were not to be present in person at he marriage; for it takes place in heaven, while they are upon the earth. The followers of Christ are to wait for their Lord, when He will return from the wedding. Luke 12:36But they are to understand His work, and to follow Him by faith as He goes in before God. It is in this sense that they are said to go in to the marriageGC1888, 427.1.,

15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage.

17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;

18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.

19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.

20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,

21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:

23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,

25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.


"The Vatican permitted scrutiny of one of the most notorious periods in Roman Catholic Church history yesterday when it opened the archives of the department once known as the Inquisition... Opened on Thursday alongside the Inquisition archives was the infamous Index of Forbidden Books, which Roman Catholics were forbidden to read or possess on pain of excommunication. They showed that even the Bible was once on the blacklist. Translations of the Holy Book ended up on the bonfires along with other 'heretical' works because the Church, whose official language was Latin, was suspicious of allowing the faithful access to sacred texts without ecclesiastical guidance."
-Stabroek News, "Vatican Archives Reveal Bible Was Once Banned Book," Friday, Jan 23, 1998, p. 10 

Of course, the Catholics would not allow the common man to read the Bible when it says that we don't need the Catholic church to read the Bible for us:

But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
-1 John 2:27

And those who would dare to read and study the Word of God were fully punished by the Catholic church:
"In 1244, their power was farther increased by the emperor Frederic the Second, who declared himself the protector and friend of all inquisitors, and published the cruel edicts, viz. 1. That all heretics who continued obstinate, should be burnt. 2. That all heretics who repented, should be imprisoned for life... The inquisition likewise takes cognizance of such as are accused of being magicians, and of such who read the bible in the common language... Upon all occasions the inquisitors carry on their processes with the utmost severity, and punish those who offend them with the most unparalleded cruelty."
-John Foxe, Foxe's Book of Martyrs, Jazzybee Verlag, 2012, ISBN: 9783849620356

Has the NEW ORGANIZATION, the 501c3 SDA non-profit, tax exempt General Conference of Seventh Day Adventists adopted SUNDAY WORSHIP? The answer is YES! Unbelievably so! Click here to see the proof the General Conference of SDA's has been promoting Sunday Worship for DECADES now!  Had Sodom and Gomorah had the great light that Adventists have had, they would have repented LONG AGO! See Luke 10:12-15.

[God's people are to GO by FAITH into the Most Holy Place WHERE JESUS IS NOW, IN HIS FATHER'S HOUSE or "Body" See John 14:20. God's people ENTER into the Body of Christ by Thanksgiving and Praise...there is only ONE MAN being saved out of this world, and that MAN is Jesus Christ. Our only hope is to get inside that man who died for us and was raised from the dead by His Father and God. Jesus has become a "quickening Spirit per 1 Cor 15:45, and we are to be filled by the Spirit of Christ per Romans 8:9, so that Christ can enable US to DO His Commands. He has commanded us to follow HIM INTO the Most Holy Place to make our requests before God the Father in the NAME of Jesus!

Thus says the LORD, "Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool. Where then is a house you could build for Me? And where is a place that I may rest?

He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David,

The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples made by human hands.

Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is dismantled, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.

For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. KJV

Job 4:19
'How much more those who dwell in houses of clay, Whose foundation is in the dust, Who are crushed before the moth!

Isaiah 38:12
"Like a shepherd's tent my dwelling is pulled up and removed from me; As a weaver I rolled up my life. He cuts me off from the loom; From day until night You make an end of me.

Mark 14:58
"We heard Him say, 'I will destroy this man-made temple, and in three days I will build another that is made without hands.'"

Acts 7:48
However, the Most High does not live in houses made by human hands. As the prophet says:

1 Corinthians 15:47
The first man was of the dust of the earth; the second man from heaven.

2 Corinthians 4:7
Now we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this surpassingly great power is from God and not from us.

Hebrews 9:11
But when Christ came as high priest of the good things that have come, He entered the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made by hands (that is, not of this creation).

Hebrews 9:24
For Christ did not enter a man-made copy of the true sanctuary, but He entered heaven itself, now to appear on our behalf in the presence of God.

2 Peter 1:13
I think it is right to refresh your memory as long as I live in the tent of my body,

2 Peter 1:14
since I know that it will soon be laid aside, as our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me.

Revelation 22:3

No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be within the city (= the Throne IS the church triumphant, the 144,000 who are chosen by God Himself as a Bride for His Son from among those who are living and giving the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th angel's message and keeping the 7th day Holy - from among the SDA movement = they are picked during their lifetime to serve as Kings and Priests in giving the Three Angel's messages found in Rev 14:6-12), and His servants will worship Him.

Isaiah 12:6
Cry aloud and shout for joy, O inhabitant of Zion, For great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.

Isaiah 14:32
"How then will one answer the messengers of the nation? That the LORD has founded Zion, And the afflicted of His people will seek refuge in it."

Isaiah 24:23
Then the moon will be abashed and the sun ashamed, For the LORD of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, And His glory will be before His elders.

Jeremiah 3:17
"At that time they will call Jerusalem (New Jerusalem = 144,000 = those who keep the 7th day Sabbath and the 12 Commandments of God by claiming Bible verse promises per 2 Peter 1:4/Jude 24) 'The Throne of the LORD,' and all the nations will be gathered to it, to Jerusalem, for the name of the LORD; nor will they walk anymore after the stubbornness of their evil heart.

Jeremiah 8:19
Behold, listen! The cry of the daughter of my people from a distant land: "Is the LORD not in Zion? Is her King not within her?" "Why have they provoked Me with their graven images, with foreign idols?"

Jeremiah 14:9
"Why are You like a man dismayed, Like a mighty man who cannot save? Yet You are in our midst, O LORD, And we are called by Your name; Do not forsake us!"

Jeremiah 23:6
"In His days Judah will be saved, And Israel will dwell securely; And this is His name by which He will be called, 'The LORD our righteousness.'

The NAME of Jesus is Bible verse promises or The Word of God per Rev 19:13. We become a partaker of Divine nature, supernatural nature, DIVINE NATURE, able to perform miracles by the Word of God per 2 Peter 1:4 by claiming Bible verse promises while praying by faith in the Third Heaven in the Most Holy Place in the Heavenly Sanctuary. Adventists WILL be judged by the Sanctuary - but this doctrine has been trashed by the modern SDA church...people want to criticize and say Oct 22, 1844 was a error...it was not a error...it was only the event, not the date that was wrong. The SDA pioneers "thought" Jesus was coming to earth Oct 22, 1844 but it was that Jesus WENT into the Most Holy Place on that date - to intercede, to blot out our sins until probation closes for the House of God and then soon thereafter the World... Just as Queen Esther was chosen to REPLACE Queen Vashti, because she refused to show her beauty at the command of the King, SDA's have refused to show the beauty of the truths they received in 1841-1846 off to the world, as being a peculiar, treasured people.....living in total obedience, vegan diet, dress reform, 7th day Sabbath, True God worship, etc....the 144,000 or the Bride of Christ are being hand picked by God Himself as a Bride for eternity for His Son from among the SDA movement from Oct 22, 1844 until probation closes at the Sunday law, when the Bride of Christ will be revealed by her actions of going forth to give the loud cry aka the Sabbath message MORE FULLY.

"When the DECREE goes forth and the stamp is impressed, their character will remain pure and spotless for eternity. NOW is the time to prepare." T5, 216.1. 

"And at the commencement of the time of trouble, we were filled with the Holy Ghost (Life of Christ) as we went forth and proclaimed the Sabbath more fully" Last Day Events, p. 143.1.

ONLY those who obey the third angel’s message and go out (separate) of all false doctrines (Rev 18:4, Matthew 25:6, Revelation 14:9-12) will be allowed to help give the loud cry:

“Isaiah 60:1: Arise, shine; for thy light (living reality experiencing Jesus helping you in your life trials) is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee” Isaiah 60:1. TO THOSE WHO GO OUT TO MEET THE BRIDEGROOM IS THIS MESSAGE GIVEN"  Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 420.3.]
 
The Seventh-day Adventist Church
 
is to be weighed. 
 
 
 She will be judged  by the privileges
 
and advantages that she has had.
 
If her spiritual experience does
 
not correspond to the advantages that Christ,
 
at infinite cost, has bestowed on her,

if the blessings conferred have not qualified her
 
to do the work entrusted to her,
 
 on her will be pronounced the sentence:
 
"Found wanting."
 
By the light bestowed, the opportunities
 
given, will she be judged. . . . 
 
 {LDE 59.3} 

"The Sabbath will be the great test of loyalty, for it is the point of truth especially controverted. When the final test shall be brought to bear upon men, then the line of distinction will be drawn between those who serve God and those who serve Him not. While the observance of the false sabbath in compliance with the law of the state, contrary to the fourth commandment, will be an avowal of allegiance to a power that is in opposition to God, the keeping of the true Sabbath, in obedience to God’s law, is an evidence of loyalty to the Creator. While one class, by accepting the sign of submission to earthly powers, receive the mark of the beast,the other choosing the token of allegiance to divine authority, receive the seal of God" {GC 605.2}.

"I saw that God had children who do not see and keep the Sabbath. They have not rejected the light upon it. And at the commencement of the time of trouble (Sunday law legislation in America), we were filled with the Holy Ghost (Life of Christ) as we went forth and proclaimed the Sabbath more fully. This enraged the churches and nominal (501c3 non-profit/tax-exempt) Adventists, as they could not refute the Sabbath truth. And at this time God's chosen all saw clearly that we had the truth, and they came out (of all churches) and endured the persecution" CET 93.2.

"The light that was shed upon the waiting ones penetrated every where, and those who had any light in the churcheswho had not heard and rejected the three messages, answered to the call, and LEFT the fallen (modern 501c3 SDA and ALL OTHER 501c3 denominational) churches. Many had come to years of accountability since these messages had been given, and the light shone upon them, and they were privileged to choose life or death. Some chose life, and took their stand with those looking for their Lord, and keeping all his commandments. The third message was to do its work; all were to be tested upon it, and the precious ones were to be CALLED OUT from the (501c3) RELIGIOUS BODIES. A compelling power moves the honest, while the manifestation of the power of God holds in fear and restraint relatives and friends, and they dare not, neither have they power to, hinder those who feel the work of the Spirit of God upon them. The last call is carried even to the poor slaves, and the pious among them, with humble expressions, pour forth their songs of extravagant joy at the prospect of their happy deliverance,and their masters cannot check them; for a fear and astonishment keep them silent. Mighty miracles are wrought, the sick are healed, and signs and wonders follow the believers. God is in the work, and every saint, fearless of consequences, follows the convictions of his own conscience, and unites with those who are keeping all the commandments of God; and they sound abroad the third message with power. I saw that the third message would close with power and strength far exceeding the midnight cry" Spiritual Gifts. Volume 1, p. 193-196.


Today, sadly the Jesuit leader influenced 501c3 non-profit, tax-exempt General Conference of Seventh day Adventists EIN # 52-0643036 IS A GOVERNMENT AGENCY and has, like the Jews rejected truth (once pure truth 1841-1846 doctrines = three angels messages, two charts, the 1843 and 1850 charts) for friendship with the world and has become corrupted. Through Jesuit leaders the General Conference of Seventh day Adventist has changed our religion as Ellen White predicted "Our religion would be changed" 1SM204.2) and has become a cage of every unclean and hateful bird which is a description of Babylon. 

(Babylon = "religious bodies that were once pure (SDA 1841-1846) and have become corrupt (SDA)" GC382.3.)

Babylon = "religious bodies that were once pure (SDA=speaks as a lamb=teaching pure truth) and have become corrupt (SDA=now speaks as a dragon=teaching false doctrines, i.e. Sunday Sacredness, Trinity, Eucharist, and many more false doctrines today)" GC382.3.


"It is IMPOSSIBLE for you to unite with those who are corrupt, and still remain pure. (II Corinthians 6:14-15 quoted). God and Christ and the heavenly host would have men know that if he unites with the corrupt he will become corrupt" S.D.A. Bible Commentary Vol. 6, p. 1102.8In Heavenly Places, p. 169.3.

Babylon means to go from pure to corrupt doctrines. Adopting corrupt doctrines of the Papal system into the Adventist church (trinity, Sunday Sacredness, Eucharist, can't be sin-free idea, etc). Adopting the hierarchical (pyramid type Egyptian/heathen) structure of the Roman Catholic church into the Adventist movement, which was done in 1903. Which according to Sister White will wax stronger and stronger until Jesus returns with a shout. She states that the SDA church will NEVER reform (1SM122), but will brought down to hell per Luke 10. Because if Sodom had had the great light that has been given to Seventh day Adventists they would have repented! God has been more merciful to us Adventists than to the people of Sodom! Get ready! Get ready! Get ready! to meet thy God!

1887: “Are we hoping to see the whole church revived? THAT TIME WILL NEVER COME” Selected Messages Vol. 1 p. 122, The Review and Herald March 22, 1887 paragraph 2 (Ellen G. White).

"In trying to break down the barriers between him that serves God and him that serves him not, they have placed themselves where their feet will NEVER AGAIN find solid groundManuscript Releases, vol. 20 [Nos. 1420-1500], p. 28.5.

"One thing it is certain is soon to be realized, the great apostasy, which is developing and increasing and waxing stronger, and will continue to do so until the Lord shall descend from heaven with a shout. We are to hold fast the first principles of our denominated faith, and go forward from strength to increased faith. Ever we are to keep the faith that has been substantiated by the Holy Spirit of God from the earlier events of our experience until the present time. We need now larger breadth, and deeper, more earnest, unwavering faith in the leadings of the Holy Spirit (quickened Life of Christ = 2nd Adam). If we needed the manifest proof of the Holy Spirit's (Life of Christ) power to confirm truth in the beginning, after the passing of the time, we need to-day all the evidence in the confirmation of the truth, when souls are departing from the faith and giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. There must not be any languishing of soul now." (E.G. White, Special Testimonies, Series B, No. 7, p. 57).

"I saw that those who oppose the Sabbath of the Lord could not take the Bible and show that our position is incorrect; therefore they would slander those who believe and teach the truth and would attack their characters. Many who were once conscientious and loved God and His Word have become so hardened by rejecting the light of truth that they do not hesitate to wickedly misrepresent and falsely accuse those who love the holy Sabbath, if by so doing they can injure the influence of those who fearlessly declare the truth. But these things will not hinder the work of God. In fact, this course pursued by those who hate the truth will be the very means of opening the eyes of some. Every jewel will be brought out and gathered, for the hand of the Lord is set to recover the remnant of His people, and He will accomplish the work gloriously" EW 69.3.

"We who believe the truth should be very careful to give no occasion for our good to be evil spoken of. We should know that every step we take is in accordance with the Bible; 
for those who hate the commandments of God will triumph over our missteps and faults, as the wicked did in 1843" EW 70.1.

"May 14, 1851, I saw the beauty and loveliness of Jesus. As I beheld His glory, the thought did not occur to me that I should ever be separated from His presence. I saw a light coming from the glory that encircled the Father, and as it approached near to me, my body trembled and shook like a leaf. I thought that if it should come near me I would be struck out of existence, but the light passed me. Then could I have some sense of the great and terrible God with whom we have to do. I saw then what faint views some have of the holiness of God, and how much they take His holy and reverend name in vain, without realizing that it is God, the great and terrible God, of whom they are speaking. While praying, many use careless and irreverent expressions, which grieve the tender Spirit of the Lord and cause their petitions to be shut out of heaven" EW 70.2.


All who obey the third angels message and go out of apostasy - all churches who have become corrupted by friendship with the world - those who come out and away from these churches who have made unholy alliances with the world are the ONLY ones who help to give the Loud Cry to the world. At the Sunday law, those who make the choice to obey God rather than man made rules will be MADE spotless for eternity. 

"When the DECREE goes forth and the stamp is impressed, their character will remain pure and spotless for eternityNOW is the time to prepare." T5, 216.1. 

"And at the commencement of the time of trouble, we were filled with the Holy Ghost (Life of Christ) as we went forth and proclaimed the Sabbath more fully" Last Day Events, p. 143.1.



"Pentecost [which] brought them the heavenly illumination. The truths they could not understand while Christ was with them were now unfolded. With a faith and assurance that they had never before known, they accepted the teachings of the Sacred Word. No longer was IT A MATTER OF FAITH with them that Christ was the Son of God. They KNEW that, although clothed with humanity, He was indeed the Messiah, and they told their experience to the world with a confidence which carried with it the conviction that God was with them." The Acts of the Apostles, p. 45.3

The wise virgins depart/exit from baptized paganism into the protection of Christ and His angels by JOINING themselves to the Way. "Jesus saith unto him, I am the Way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6. The Way is Christ's righteousness (pure unadulterated truth put into practice into our choices/life) and is the only protection/covering from the 7 last plagues.

ONLY those who obey the third angel’s message and go out (separate) of all false doctrines (Rev 18:4, Matthew 25:6, Revelation 14:9-12) will be allowed to help give the loud cry:

“Isaiah 60:1: Arise, shine; for thy light (living reality experiencing Jesus helping you in your life trials) is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee” Isaiah 60:1. TO THOSE WHO GO OUT TO MEET THE BRIDEGROOM IS THIS MESSAGE GIVEN"  Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 420.3.


Reception of Mark of the Beast Future.–"The change of the Sabbath is the sign or mark of the authority of the Romish church. Those who, understanding the claims of the fourth commandment, choose to observe the false sabbath in the place of the true, are thereby paying homage to that power by which alone it is commanded. The mark of the beast is the papal sabbath, which has been accepted by the world in the place of the day of God’s appointment" {Ev 234.1}.

I ask, who is it that will understand the claims of the fourth commandment at the time of the NSL? It is none other than the 501c3 SDA’s, and its a sad thing because most will give in and keep Sunday and receive the “Mark of the Beast.”

“For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?” 1 Peter 4:17.

Revelation 12:6 says "And the woman (God's church) fled into the wilderness (obscurity/little known to the Catholics = trinity worshipers/Sunday worshipers = trinity is the god of Sunday worshipers from which springs all false doctrines), where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed (nourish with pure truth) her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. (1260 days/42 months or 3.5 years starting March 19, 2013 to Sept 19, 2016)". Revelation 11:3 "And I will appoint my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth." 

This oppression led the way for the Catholic church to suppress all knowledge it did not first approve, and people it did not approve of, even doctors and scientists who were seeking to cure illnesses and disease. For example, many such illnesses and diseases could have been wiped out if people were simply taught to wash their hands, which God instructed Israel to do in the Old Testament, but since the Catholic church suppressed the reading of the Word of God, that information never reached the people. 

 The saints will be little known to the Catholics. They will be a wilderness or obscure people worshiping God where they can (in their MINDS, by what they think, say and do), in their homes or groups. Revelation 12:13-17: "where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time": "the four angels would hold the four winds until Jesus’ work was done in the sanctuary, and then will come the seven last plagues" "Then I saw that Jesus would not leave the Most Holy Place until every case was decided either for salvation or destruction, and that the wrath of God could not come until Jesus had finished his work in the Most Holy Place, laid off his priestly attire and clothed himself with the garments of vengeance. Then Jesus will step out from between the Father and man, and God will keep silence no longer; but pour out his wrath on those who have rejected his truth. I saw that the anger of the nations, the wrath of God, and the time to judge the dead, were separate events, one following the other. I saw that Michael had not stood up, and that the time of trouble, such as never was, had not yet commenced. The nations are now getting angry, but when our High Priest has finished his work in the Sanctuary, he will stand up, put on the garments of vengeance, and then the seven last plagues will be poured out."

“The great plan of redemption, as revealed in the closing work of these last days, should receive close examination. The scenes connected with the sanctuary above should make such an impression upon the minds and hearts of all that they may be able to impress others. All need to become more intelligent in regard to the work of the atonement, which is going on in the sanctuary above. When this grand truth is seen and understood, those who hold it will work in harmony with Christ to prepare a people to stand in the great day of God, and their efforts will be successful. By study, contemplation, and prayer God’s people will be elevated above common, earthly thoughts and feelings, and will be brought into harmony with Christ and His great work of cleansing the sanctuary above from the sins of the people.Their faith will go with Him into the sanctuary, and the worshipers on earth will be carefully reviewing their lives and comparing their characters with the great standard of righteousness (10 Commandments=Christ the law in our minds, the mind of Christ in us, His character, His merits and attributes are written for us to mold our lives after in the Ten Commandments with His help)They will see their own defects; they will also see that they must have the aid of the Spirit of God if they would become qualified for the great and solemn work for this time which is laid upon God’s ambassadors.” 5T 575


"The church of Christ found refuge in seclusion and obscurity." The Great Controversy, p. 54.2


 "obscure people" —Spalding and Magan Collection, p. 1. 

The home churches and small groups are the JETS of LIGHT that Ellen White said would occur in the end of time, like in raised fields filled with gems of truth. The story of Esther, the preparing to hear the Ten Commandments on Mt Sinai, David and Jonathon in the raised field all relate to Hosea 6:2 another end time prophecy as well, is what I believe. This little verse, Hosea 6:2 is simply amazing. I keep seeing things that parallel to it and Jesus second coming when the earth will be 6,000 years old. That is another reason I believe the end is near...if you just take the weekly Sabbath, that is another reason to study the end is near...it really helps me to study this, because I find so many gems of truth that fit into the whole puzzle, which stands on the foundation of the truth about God and His Son. IF I did not understand this, the other would not be plain for me to see. ALL of the things I am learning point to the 2016/2017 time frame for probation closing for the world and soon thereafter Christ's second return.

I feel some of those are the same as the ones used to try and keep us deceived and in the SDA church not obeying Rev 18:4 and Matthew 25:6... we clearly hear the denominational leaders trumpet from the pulpits of the land, “She is the ship of God, perhaps listing badly, yet we are assured that she is sailing steadfastly into the heavenly port…. STAY WITH THE SHIP!” “She is the ‘apple of God’s eye,’ ‘the remnant church.’ DON’T GIVE UP, NOW!” “Defective and feeble though she be, -- indeed, she is not perfect, -- but God will purify His church. THE APOSTATES WILL LEAVE! DON’T BE FOUND OUTSIDE WITH THEM.” “The church will appear as about to fall, BUT SHE WILL NOT FALL!” I think this quote is used out of context for sure. I feel the one used that "NO MAN KNOWS THE DAY AND HOUR" is used to shut people up, and make them feel they should not study. Well, I don't think God would have us ignorant of the great events taking place right before our very eyes. The prophets wanted to be alive to see this time! 

See what you think below, and then let me know your thoughts.

Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.

1 Thessalonians 5:4
But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.

We are called to understand and interpret the signs of the times in which we live.

Yes, this is my opinion based on my studies. It does not however go contrary to what Jesus says in Matthew 24:36, "But of that "day and hour" knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." Because, I am NOT setting a time that Jesus comes, this is prior to His coming perhaps by a year or approximately 2 weeks? OF course, this MUST be qualified by "for the time of trouble must come before the coming of Christ." RH July 21, 1851, Art. A, par. 14

If Jesus' return to earth is "Event C," then it cannot come until "Event B" has already happened. Likewise, "Event B" will not be seen unless "Event A" has already been fulfilled. It's really that simple.

Just as the 3 wise men knew the approximate timing of Christ's birth in Bethlehem, I think wise men (and women) Beareans - can know the time is at the door. 

Luke 12:56 "Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?" 

Matthew 16:3 "And in the morning, 'Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.' You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times."

No, we will not know the exact "day and hour" of Christ's second appearing on earth....only God the Father knows that...and will tell His faithful few the date about 2 weeks prior to the event (is my understanding - I can get you all the quotes for this as well - very interesting) At this time the sound of God's voice will raise those who have died (those who have died believing in and helping to give the 3 angels messages and the 7th day Sabbath from 1844 onward) and also some of Christ's worst enemies will be raised...like the people that crucified Him? --this is just my understanding to date - and then about 2 weeks after Christ will come to raise the rest of the dead in Christ and to get those who are alive - this is how 144,000 will be alive and some that have died already that Ellen White said would be part of the 144,000 that will be translated alive...this is what the SDA pioneers believed. (I can get all the quotes for you - they are very interesting).

This does not set a date for Christ to come. AND of course it must be qualified by "for the time of trouble must come before the coming of Christ." RH July 21, 1851, Art. A, par. 14

Review and Herald, April 14, 1893: “The events of the future WILL be discerned by prophecy, and WILL be understood.”

"We can know just where we are in this world’s history." Sermons and Talks Volume Two, p. 48.5

We need to be informed and discerning like “the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do…” (1 Chronicles 12:32).

"I saw some, looking too far off for the coming of the LordTime has continued on a few years longer than they expected, therefore they think it may continue a few years more, and in this way their minds are being led from present truth, out after the world.Broadside2 January 31, 1849, par. 2.

Light will come to God's people, and those who have sought to close the door will either repent or be removed out of the way. The time has come when a new impetus must be given to the work. There are terrible scenes before us, and Satan is seeking to keep from our knowledge the very things that God would have us know. God has messengers and messages for his people. If ideas are presented that differ in some points from our former doctrines, we must not condemn them without diligent search of the Bible to see if they are true. We must fast and pray and search the Scriptures as did the noble Bereans, to see if these things are so. We must accept every ray of light that comes to us. Through earnest prayer and diligent study of God's word, dark things will be made plain to the understanding.” ST, May 26, 1890 par. 12 

There is to be in the [Seventh-day Adventist] churches a wonderful manifestation of the power of God, but it will not move upon those who have not humbled themselves before the Lord, and opened the door  of the heart by confession and repentance. In the manifestation of that power which lightens the earth with the glory of God, they will see only something which in their blindness they think dangerous, something which will arouse their fears, and they will brace themselves to resist itBecause the Lord does not work according to their ideas and expectations they will oppose the work. "Why," they say, "should we not know the Spirit of God, when we have been in the work so many years?"--RH Extra, Dec. 23, 1890.

Watch this great video telling how the Pope want's Sunday Worship for the "Common Good" of the "world":

THIS VIDEO EXPLAINS THE ORIGIN OF THE TERM USED "COMMON GOOD" and what it really means:




"And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming" 2 Thessalonians 2:8.

Ezekiel 28:9
King James Version (KJV)
9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee.

Isaiah 14:16
King James Version (KJV)
16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;

Isaiah 14:14 "I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High."

Isaiah 14:13 "You said in your heart, "I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon."

Personates Christ's 2nd Coming

2 Cor 11:14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.

2 Cor 11:15 It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve. [NIV]

Rev 13:4 And they worshiped the dragon [Satan] which gave power unto the beast: ...

2 Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2 Th 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

The 7th and last Pope, Benedict XVI, turns over the throne of Peter to Satan, and the world worships Satan believing him to be Christ.



"Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist--denying the Father and the Son" 1 John 2:22.

When the Mark of the Beast Is Received

No one has yet received the mark of the beast.—Evangelism, 234 (1899).


"Sundaykeeping is not yet the mark of the beast, and will not be until the decree goes forth causing men to worship this idol sabbath. The time will come when this day will be the test, but that time has not come yet" The S.D.A. Bible Commentary 7:977 (1899).


"God has given men the Sabbath as a sign between Him and them as a test of their loyalty. Those who, after the light regarding God’s law comes to them, continue to disobey and exalt human laws above the law of God in the great crisis before us, will receive the mark of the beast"—Evangelism, 235 (1900).


"The Sabbath will be the great test of loyalty, for it is the point of truth especially controverted. When the final test shall be brought to bear upon men, then the line of distinction will be drawn between those who serve God and those who serve Him not.

While the observance of the false sabbath in compliance with the law of the state, contrary to the fourth commandment, will be an avowal of allegiance to a power that is in opposition to God, the keeping of the true Sabbath, in obedience to God’s law, is an evidence of loyalty to the Creator. While one class, by accepting the sign of submission to earthly powers, receive the mark [666] of the beast, the other, choosing the token of allegiance to divine authority, receive the seal [mark, sign, stamp, signet ring] of God"—The Great Controversy, 605 (1911).


Enforcement of Sunday Observance Is the Test

None are condemned until they have had the light and have seen the obligation of the fourth commandment. But when the decree shall go forth enforcing the counterfeit sabbath, and the loud cry of the third angel shall warn men against the worship of the beast and his image, the line will be clearly drawn between the false and the true. Then those who still continue in transgression will receive the mark of the beast.Evangelism, 234, 235 (1899).

When Sunday observance shall be enforced by law, and the world shall be enlightened concerning the obligation of the true Sabbath, then whoever shall transgress the command of God to obey a precept which has no higher authority than that of Rome, will thereby honor popery above God. He is paying homage to Rome, and to the power which enforces the institution ordained by Rome. He is worshiping the beast and his image.

As men then reject the institution which God has declared to be the sign of His authority, and honor in its stead that which Rome has chosen as the token of her supremacy, they will thereby accept the sign of allegiance to Rome—“the mark of the beast.” And it is not until the issue is thus plainly set before the people, and they are brought to choose between the commandments of God and the commandments of men, that those who continue in transgression will receive “the mark of the beast.”—The Great Controversy, 449 (1911).


The End of the World

Jer 12:16 As "the Lord liveth", before whom I stand, I present thy promise to thee (insert Bible verse promise like Luke 21:15, John 6:37) You’ve said through your Son Jesus that we are to "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. I claim/present these promises Lord God of Heaven in the NAME of Jesus because you’ve promised your Word will not return unto you void in Isaiah 55:11 and 2 Peter 1:4, James 3:2 and Luke 21:15!

"'The words that I speak are spirit and life' John 6:63. Christ is not here referring to His doctrine, but to His person, the divinity of His character” 1SM249. Psalm 119:160 "The beginning of thy word is truth, (the beginning (origin) of Christ is truth (Micah 5:2; Colossians 1:15; Colossians 1:17; Psalm 89:27; Colossians 1:18; Revelation 1:5; Romans 8:29; Hebrews 12:23) and every one of the judgments of thy ... Those that hate sin truly, hate it as sin, as a transgression of the law of God" 1 John 3:4; Romans 4:15, 1 John 5:17, 1 John 3:9.

“The light that Daniel received from God was given especially for these last days. The visions he saw by the banks of the Ulai and the Hiddekel, the great rivers of Shinar, are now in process of fulfillment, and all the events foretold will soon [FUTURE] come to pass.” {TM 112.3, 113}
 
The light Daniel received in his visions by the banks of the Ulai and the Hiddekel is recorded in Daniel 8 and 10. See Daniel 8:2 on the Ulai and Daniel 10:4 on the Hiddekel. Remember, the great point is that ALL THE EVENTS of the visions by the Ulai and the Hiddekel WILL SOON COME TO PASS.

This fact would demand another literal application of Daniel 8:14 and the events therein described. Thus, many are misinterpreting Ellen White words about time. She specified “prophetic time,” which is day for a year time when she said there will be no more tracing of time. Any literal time in the future will not be a test because it will not fail as the date of 1844 did. If this is not true, Ellen White is made a false prophet be her own words in saying that ALL THE EVENTS Daniel envisioned by the rivers Ulai and Hiddekel will come to pass. So those who interpret Ellen White’s words on time to mean ALL TIME, including literal time, make her a false prophet by their false interpretation.

The light that Daniel received from God was given especially for these last days. The visions he saw by the banks of the Ulai and the Hiddekel, the great rivers of Shinar, are now in process of fulfillment, and all the events foretold will soon come to pass. - Testimonies to Ministers, pp. 112-113 (emphasis added).

 

This statement is linked to the angel Gabriel's explanation to Daniel after he had seen the vision recorded in chapter 8: "Understand, 0 son of man: for at the time of the end "(Dan 8:17).Ellen White died in the first part of this century. Like Gabriel she is evidently pointing us to a future event beyond her time.

We are standing on the threshold of great and solemn events. Many of the prophecies are about to be fulfilled in quick succession. Every element of power is about to be set to work. Past history will be repeated; old controversies will arouse to new life, and peril will beset God's people on every side. Intensity is taking hold of the human family. It is permeating everything upon the earth. Study Revelation in connection with Daniel, for history will be repeated." - Testimonies to Ministers, p. 116 (emphasis added).

      "The prophecy in the eleventh [chapter] of Daniel has nearly reached its complete fulfillment. Much of the history that has taken place in fulfillment of this prophecy will be repeated." - Letter 103, 1904 (MR 1077 [emphasis added]).
 

A repetition of the historical events which fulfilled a given prophecy indicates that the prophecy itself will have a dual fulfillment.
      
Ellen White uses the expression, "history will be repeated," a number of times.

 Ellen White, along with the early pioneers in general, believed that the period of papal oppression, the 1260 years, extended from 538 B.C. to A.D. 1798. This prophetic period is mentioned in both Daniel and Revelation under three different time symbols: (1) three and one-half times-Dan 7:25; 12:7; Rev 12:14; (2) 1260 days - Rev 11:3; 12:6; (3) 42 months - Rev 11:2; 13:5. Accordingly, Ellen White and the pioneers believed that the period of time which extended from 1798 to the close of human probation was to be designated as "the time of the end "the period spoken of by the angel Gabriel. The preadvent (investigative) judgment would take place in this period and would be announced on earth by the first angel's message (Dan 7:9-10, 13-14; Rev 14:6-7). Note Ellen White's clear statements on this point:

Daniel stood in his lot to bear his testimony which was sealed until the time of the end, when the first angel's message should be proclaimed to our world.-Testimonies to Ministers,p. 115 (emphasis added).

Since 1798 the book of Daniel has been unsealed, knowledge of the prophecies has increased, and many have proclaimed the solemn message of the judgment near. - The Great Controversy, p. 356.

The message of Revelation 14, proclaiming that the hour of God's judgment is come, is given in the time of the end. -Selected Messages, book 2, p. 107 (emphasis added).

The prophetic visions of Daniel and John foretell a period of moral darkness and declension; but at the time of the end, the time in which we are now living the vision was to speak and not lie. - Testimonies, vol.5, pp. 9-10 (emphasis added).
 
In the light of the above remarks it is evident that when Ellen White said that the visions Daniel saw (chap. 8) "are now in process of fulfillment" she was referring to the great preadvent investigative judgment (Dan 7-8) that was going on in heaven in her day, and which will continue until the close of human probation. Which I believe, based on what I have studied is on or about Sept 13, 2016 - could be off for some calender length situation...and be Sept 23, 2016? I don't know...but I think it's close....because of Rev 13:5 and several other Bible texts referring to this 3.5 years/42 months or 1360 days prophecy in Daniel and Revelation.

1260 year prophecy[edit]

Timeline of "time, times and half a time", 1260 days or 42 month prophecy in historicist Seventh-day Adventism and is AGAIN repeated only in LITERAL days.

Historicist interpreters have usually understood the "time, times and half a time", "1,260 days" and "42 months" mentioned in Daniel and Revelation to be references to represent a period of 1260 years.[16]

These time periods occur seven times in scripture:


Daniel 7:25, "time, times and a half".
Daniel 12:7, "time, times and a half".
Revelation 11:2, "42 months".
Revelation 11:3, "1260 days".
Revelation 12:6, "1260 days".
Revelation 12:14, "time, times and a half".
Revelation 13:5, "42 months".


INTERESTING STUDY: Rev 13:5 says Pope Francis, first black (black because he is a Jesuit - look this up on Wikipedia) Jesuit Roman King "the man" (Rev 14:16, 2 Thessalonians 2:3,) reigns for 42 months, which equals 3.5 years or 1260 days. I think Jesuit Pope Francis started his reign on March 13, 2013 and will be given authority until Sept 13, 2016. This would be a literal application of the 42 months. Now, if that IS true, 1 year is gone already, and that leaves 2.5 years left. Jesuit Pope Francis is soon to speak unprecedentedly  to our legislators, tentatively Sept 2015 or sooner"the final movements will be rapid ones." Last Day Events, p. 11.2

About Pope Francis:  "Those who see you will stare at you. They will wonder about you: 'Is this the man who made the earth tremble, who made kingdoms quake," Isaiah 14:16

Isaiah 14:14 "
I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High."


Isaiah 14:13 "You said in your heart, "I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon."


The home churches and small groups are the JETS of LIGHT that Ellen White say in the end time, like in raised fields filled with gems of truth. The story of Esther, the preparing to hear the Ten Commandments on Mt Sinai, David and Jonathon in the raised field all relate to Hosea 6:2 another end time prophecy as well, is what I believe. This little verse, Hosea 6:2 is simply amazing. I keep seeing things that parallel to it and Jesus second coming when the earth will be 6,000 years old. That is another reason I believe the end is near...if you just take the weekly Sabbath, that is another reason to study the end is near...it really helps me to study this, because I find so many gems of truth that fit into the whole puzzle, which stands on the foundation of the truth about God and His Son. IF I did not understand this, the other would not be plain for me to see. ALL of the things I am learning point to the 2016/2017 time frame for probation closing for the world and soon thereafter Christ's second return.

Remember the vision where Ellen White was looking for the Advent people in the world? "I seemed to be surrounded with light, and to be rising higher and higher from the earth. I turned to look for the advent people in the world, but could not find them, when a voice said to me, "Look again, and look a little higher." At this, I raised my eyes, and saw a straight and narrow path, cast up high above the world. On this path the advent people were traveling to the city which was at the farther end of the path. They had a bright light set up behind them at the beginning of the path, which an angel told me was the "midnight cry." [See Matthew 25:6.] This light shone all along the path, and gave light for their feet, so that they might not stumble." http://richkelsey.org/ellen_white_first_vision.htm

Acts 20:8 "There were many lamps in the upstairs room where we were meeting." upstairs room compare to "an open field raised above the earth". Matthew 25:1 "At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom."

"toilers in a field which calls for self-denying labor;" HM July 1, 1891, par. 5

I think this is where we are in the history of this world, in a raised field, being fed truth while in the wilderness which represents seclusion and obscurity so we really are an obscure people to the Catholics....which Ellen White predicted...I think this wilderness or little time of trouble started March 13, 2013...and lasts until Sept 13, 2016, which then gets worse, and turns into Jacobs time of trouble, when the Pope is destroyed by a nuclear bomb??? just guessing there... but the ten kings and the pope are given power to rule the world for 1 hour or 15 days... still studying about this...

Pope Francis' official oath as a Jesuit:
"I furthermore promise and declare that I will, when opportunity present, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex or condition; and that I will hang, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics, rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women and crush their infants' heads against the walls, in order to annihilate forever their execrable race. That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel of the poniard or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honor, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agent of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Faith, of the Society of Jesus.

(See entire oath herehttp://www.remnantofgod.org/francis.htm


Dan 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

Rev 13:5 "And there was given unto him (Pope Francis) a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months."


Dan 12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.

Rev 12:14 And to the woman were given two wings (1843 and 1850 charts, two breasts, two tables, two wings) of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.


I don't know the exact "day and hour" WHEN Christ will come, but I do believe that it is SOON, even at the door. Jesus said that we couldn't know the day or the hour, but we could know when the time was "near." Matthew 24:33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. There is no excuse for God's people; final events need not surprise us like a thief in the night.  However, most will be shocked and unprepared for the devastation and unfolding of prophetic events long foretold in the Hebrew Scriptures

"Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the Day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this Day should surprise you like a thief. You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober,"  1 Thessalonians 5:1-5.

"Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are His. He changes times and seasons; He deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerningHe reveals deep and hidden things," Daniel 2:20-22

"Since 1798 the book of Daniel has been unsealed, knowledge of the prophecies has increased, and many have proclaimed the solemn message of the judgment near." - The Great Controversy, p. 356.

Revelation 3:3
Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.

1 Thessalonians 5:4
But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.


Revelation 16:15
"Look, I come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake and remains clothed, so as not to go naked and be shamefully exposed."

"Look, I am coming soon! Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy written in this scroll."

"To souls that are earnestly seeking for light and that accept with gladness every ray of divine illumination from His holy Word, to such alone light will be given. It is through these souls that God will reveal that light and power which will lighten the whole earth with His glory."--5T 729 
(1889).



As the light is diffused, given to others, greater light will come. The reason why the churches sit in darkness and have no light, is that they have not given light, they have not been as a city set upon a hill, that cannot be hid.” RH, February 10, 1891 par. 13

“ Every act of consecration to God brings joy; for as we appreciate the light He has given us, more and greater light will comeML 174.4

Yet every mind through whom the Holy Spirit has worked has presented these themes in a light that is fresh and new. The truths of redemption are capable of constant development and expansionThough old, they are ever newconstantly revealing to the seeker for truth a greater glory and a mightier powerIn every age there is a new development of trutha message of God to the people of that generation. The old truths are all essential; new truth is not independent of the old, but an unfolding of it. It is only as the old truths are understood that we can comprehend the newWhen Christ desired to open to His disciples the truth of His resurrection, He began "at Moses and all the prophets" and "expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning Himself." Luke 24:27. But it is the light which shines in the fresh unfolding of truth that glorifies the oldHe who rejects or neglects the new does not really possess the oldFor him it loses its vital power and becomes but a lifeless form. COL 127-128 


Follow every ray of light that you seeand that which is shadowy will be made clear to your understanding as you walk in the light.ST, January 24, 1895 par. 5

There are MANY other things that are happening right now that point to this as well. Like Pope Francis being invited to speak in front of our legislators - remember it is THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA that are going to demand our legislators make and enforce a Sunday law because of all the calamities occurring- probably around Sept of 2015 is when Pope Francis will speak to America in Congress, if not before. It is like a dump truck load of various reasons why it points to this time frame... not JUST the Pope Francis Rev 17:5 42 months - that I believe where type meets anti-type. What has been will be fulfilled again...only literal time this time.

2017 is a Jubilee year and I believe this will be the year Jesus returns...but will be cut short in righteousness/truth. I think this is referring to when the 144,000 stand before God without a mediator, perfected in character, after Jesus has said it is finished and the plagues are falling as Jesus puts the sins on Satan's heads and puts on His robes to come get us.

Another Jubilee year does not roll around for another 50 years. There will be 120 Jubilees since earth’s creation this 2017. Many more things factor into this. 

Here are the statements about , "a number of days" for the plagues to fall:
 
"And I saw a flaming cloud come where Jesus stood. Then Jesus . . . took His place on the cloud which carried Him to the East, where it first appeared to the saints on earth--a small black cloud which was the sign of the Son of man. While the cloud was passing from the Holiest to the East, which took a number of days, the synagogue of Satan worshipped at the saints' feet."  {Mar 287.8}
 
And from another place. 
 
"And I saw a flaming cloud come where Jesus stood and he laid off his priestly garment and put on his kingly robe, took his place on the cloud which carried him to the east where it first appeared to the saints on earth, a small black cloud, which was the sign of the Son of Man. While the cloud was passing from the Holiest to the east which took a number of days, the Synagogue of Satan worshiped at the saints feet." Ellen G. Harmon  {DS, March 14, 1846 par. 2}

https://sites.google.com/site/theendtimewarning/interesting-meaning-of-words-in-certain-verses

Then there is this one:
 
 
"Then I saw Jesus lay off His priestly attire and clothe Himself with His most kingly robes. Upon His head were many crowns, a crown within a crown. Surrounded by the angelic host, He left heaven. The plagues were falling upon the inhabitants of the earth."  {EW 281.1}  {1SG 200.1}

The last appeals that the Lord is sending to us to give up our wicked ways, our lukewarmness, to reform and to repent. The angel told me that only those who reform and obey the commandments and laws of God will have the assurance of the divine protection. We must reform by the aid of the grace of Jesus christ. No meat, no grease and no cheese in any of its forms, everything that is of animal origin slows down the spirituality, the moral and physical strengths.

The "Close of Probation" is determined by the time of The Day of Atonement in the Hebrew Sanctuary services.  In 1844, Jesus began the Judgment on October 22, which was a Day of Atonement,  and Jesus will declare, "It is finished", on a Day of Atonement in the year that He returns because, "Type must meet its Anti-type at the time pointed out in the symbolic service" of the Sanctuary.  This is proven by the fact that at His crucifixion and resurrection, Jesus specifically observed the Spring feasts with exact attention to the day and time the feast was to take place!  See the book, The Great Controversy PP. 399 - 400.
 
It is only five days from the Day of Atonement to the First Day of the Feast of Tabernacles and that is how quickly the plagues will fall in different parts of the world and the end will come!  On the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles we begin our, "seven day journey"  to Heaven and on the "Eighth Day" which is "the last great day of the feast", we will sit down to the Heavenly Banquet" with Christ and all the redeemed, the angels and beings from the un-fallen worlds!  This is what Ellen White, Haskell and other of the "pioneers" believed and taught!

According to events described preceding this statement of "silence in heaven for half an hour", I think this is the time when all the beings of heaven come with Jesus to deliver His Elect!

Revelation 19:7 "Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready."


Revelation 12:6 "The woman (remnant/144,000/faithful city of God) fled into the wilderness." "The church of Christ found refuge in seclusion and obscurity. Thus says the prophet: "The woman (pure virgin church of truth) fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her (truth) there a thousand two hundred and three-score days." Revelation 12:6." The Great Controversy, p. 54.2  "These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth" Revelation 14:4. David Hides From Saul: "On his return he was to hide in a field not far from the banqueting hall, for three days (see Hosea 6:2) absenting himself from the presence of the king." FROM ETERNITY PAST, PAGE 476, see Hosea 6:2 that on the third day we will LIVE in the Sight of God because of the righteous scepter (Christ) that is held out to us by God the King of Kings. 

He was to hide in a field not far from the banqueting hall, for three days (see Hosea 6:2) absenting himself from the presence of the king. "And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him." Matthew 25:6. Exodus 19:16 "On the morning of the third day there was thunder and lightning, with a thick cloud over the mountain, and a very loud trumpet blast (compare to 2nd advent trumpets). Everyone in the camp trembled."

Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. (Remember: probation closes for the house of God FIRST)

Acts 20:9 Seated in a window was a young man named Eutychus, who was sinking into a deep sleep as Paul talked on and on. When he was sound asleep, he fell to the ground from the third story and was picked up dead.


11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. [Then I was shown a company who were howling in agony. On their garments was written in large characters, “Thou art weighed in the balance, and found wanting.” I asked who this company were. The angel said, “These are they who have once kept the Sabbath and have given it up.” (professed militant modern Adventists who worship the trinity (1st 3 commandments) and break the Sabbath (4th commandment)) I heard them cry with a loud voice, “We have believed in thy coming, and taught it with energy.” And while they were speaking, their eyes would fall upon their garments and see the writing, and then they would wail aloud. I saw that they had drunk of the deep waters, and fouled the residue with their feet—trodden the Sabbath under foot, and that is why they were weighed in the balance and found wanting." A Sketch of the Christian Experience and Views of Ellen G. White, p. 19.1]

13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

We are not far from the gospel feast - the house of the bridegroom - hiding in the wilderness being nourished and refreshed by truth - perfecting and testing messages - worship God only - come out of all churches - sent to us through Jesus from God the Father.

"toilers in a field which calls for self-denying labor;" HM July 1, 1891, par. 5

"Then I saw that Jesus would not leave the Most Holy Place until every case was decided either for salvation or destruction, and that the wrath of God could not come until Jesus had finished his work in the Most Holy Place, laid off his priestly attire and clothed himself with the garments of vengeance. Then Jesus will step out from between the Father and man, and God will keep silence no longer; but pour out his wrath on those who have rejected his truth. I saw that the anger of the nations, the wrath of God, and the time to judge the dead, were separate events, one following the other. I saw that Michael had not stood up, and that the time of trouble, such as never was, had not yet commenced. The nations are now getting angry, but when our High Priest has finished his work in the Sanctuary, he will stand up, put on the garments of vengeance, and then the seven last plagues will be poured out. I saw that the four angels would hold the four winds until Jesus’ work was done in the Sanctuary, and then will come the seven last plaguesThese plagues enraged the wicked against the righteous, and they thought that we had brought them down upon them, and if they could rid the earth of us, then the plagues would be stayed. A decree went forth to slay the saints, which caused them to cry day and night for deliverance. This was the time of Jacob’s troubleThen all the saints cried out with anguish of spirit, and were delivered by the voice of God. Then the 144,000 triumphed. Their faces were lighted up with the glory of God. Then I was shown a company who were howling in agony. On their garments was written in large characters, “Thou art weighed in the balance, and found wanting.” I asked who this company were. The angel said, “These are they who have once kept the Sabbath and have given it up.” (professed Adventists who worship the trinity and break the Sabbath) I heard them cry with a loud voice, “We have believed in thy coming, and taught it with energy.” And while they were speaking, their eyes would fall upon their garments and see the writing, and then they would wail aloud. I saw that they had drunk of the deep waters, and fouled the residue with their feet—trodden the Sabbath under foot, and that is why they were weighed in the balance and found wanting." A Sketch of the Christian Experience and Views of Ellen G. White, p. 19.1

My brethren, the value of the evidences of truth that we have received during the past half century, is above estimate. These evidences are as treasure hidden in a field. Search for them. Study the Bible truths that for fifty years have been calling us out from the world. Present this evidence in clear, plain lines. Those who have been long in the truth and those who have recently received the truth must now dig for the buried heavenly treasure. Let every man work to the point. Study the word of God. Revive the evidences given in the past. “Search the Scriptures,” Christ said; “for in them ye think ye have eternal life, and they are they which testify of Me.”

Those who stand before the people as teachers of truth are to grapple with great themes. They are not to occupy precious time in talking of trivial subjects. Let them study the Word, and preach the Word. Let the Word be in their hands as a sharp, two-edged sword. Let it testify to past truths and show what is to be in the future are to shape our lives and that by us are to be proclaimed to the world. We are to keep abreast of the times, bearing a clear, intelligent testimony, guided by the unction of the Holy Spirit.—Manuscript 31, 1906. pp. 5, 6. (“Be Vigilant,” April 2, 1906.)

The enemies of the truth know that they have not strong arguments to sustain their position; therefore they will try the mettle of the one who presents the truth. In the position where you are placed to vindicate the truth, keep self out of sight, make no boast of knowledge, place your feet upon the Word, the eternal Word of truth. Make no reference to any sly thrusts of your opponent. Do not manifest a spirit of retaliation. But ever maintain the gentleness of Christ. Put on Christ. Your physical infirmities urge you to hasty feelings and hasty words, which give your opponent an advantage.Abide in Christ. For the truth's sake, for Christ's sake, preserve the dignity, the elevated and ennobling character of the truthYour zeal will need to be controlled by the Holy Spirit of God, lest it quicken into impatience as you see the Scriptures wrested and fables and human assertions presented as truth. Men who know that they have the truth can have power only as they present the truth as it is in Jesus. . . .

Dwell as little as possible upon your opponents' objections, but press in the truth, new and convincing, arguments to cut away and undermine error. Keep your own spirit ever calm, even against personal abuse. Never retaliate. Let the spirit of kindness, Christian courtesy, rule your every action. The Holy Spirit will help your infirmities. People will pass judgment upon the men. Those in error have learnedthat their strength is to maintain self-control, while the fires of hell may be stirring every fiber of the being.

Your opponent will say words which will irritate a sensitive mindPass these by unheededDo not once forget that you are speaking for God's truth. Your spirit, if kept gentle under provocation, will speak louder than any force of argument. Do not imperil the truth by an unwise word. Remember how, when provoked, Moses once spoke unadvisedly, and dishonored God. You need larger experience as a student in the school of Christ, in copying His meekness and lowliness.--Letter 9a, 1894, pp. 2, 4. (To Elder J. O. Corliss, December 8, 1894.)

1,290 days and the 1,335 days referred to in Daniel:12:11-12

Rev 12:14 And to the woman (remnant=144,000) were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness (out of all 501c3 churches), into her place (in a field, represents truth/gems), where she is nourished (latter rains perfecting testing messages) for a time, and times, and half a time (42 months or 3.5 years or 1,260 days), from the face of the serpent.

The Francis (77 years old) is the 266th and current Pope of the Catholic Church, in which capacity he is Bishop of Rome and absolute Sovereign of the Vatican City State.

AS OF MARCH 7, 2006 501C3 "non-profit" "tax-exempt" CHURCHES HAVE BECOME  "OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT AGENCIES"

Were you aware that Constantine made the first Sunday Law March 7  321AD?

On March 7, George W. Bush declared in his Executive Order #13397 that all “faith based” entities in the USA fall under the title as GOVERNMENT AGENCIES. This order actually tied the Office of Homeland Security with those “faith based” churches on that day as well. This is why we saw Government spies in U.S. churches reporting back to the White House any and all preachers that spoke against the Government from their pulpits. Especially in 2004 prior to the election Bush so desperately needed to win! What they learned from those churches made their next move obvious. Since they now know the majority of the people are aware of what they’re up to, it is now the Governments job to stop the negative speaking preachers so as to calm the storm they themselves have generated and create a false sense of security as well as “peace and safety.”

FREE SPEECH WILL NOT BE ALLOWED IN CHURCHES!
Agape Press News Briefs 
Commentary & News Briefs 
Wednesday, October 2, 2002

...After a tough debate last night in the House chamber, Congressman Walter Jones' Houses of Worship Political Speech Protection Act was voted down this morning. If it had passed, the bill would have freely allowed political speech inside churches without the fear of the loss of tax-exempt status with the Internal Revenue Service. When the vote finally came in, the legislation was defeated 237-178. There were 16 abstentions. Following this action by the House, churches will remain the only place where "free speech" is not allowed in the United States

Are Political Spies in Churches?
-cbn.comJuly 2, 2004

In the 
United States, with presidential elections only months away, political spies may be attending Sunday church services. The Kansas City Star reports that in JohnsonCounty volunteers from a liberal group called the "Mainstream Coalition" will attend Sunday services in different churches; 100 volunteers will slip into church, trying to catch political statements from the pulpit which might violate U.S. federal law.

Since the preachers of these churches wouldn’t bow to Government strong-arming, the government had to pull the ace they had up their sleeve. When Robertson rallied in DC with 15000 supporters back in 2002 he created an obvious need before the powers that be to do as he (Rome) wanted all along. A few preachers here and there speaking out is no big problem. Rome knew this, and needed a way to make the problem worse so as to ensure their long desired agenda. So, Robertson was called upon to fan the flames so as to make those in D.C. wake up and start pushing a strict agenda against the churches. The Jesuits in the U.S. Government knew all along this day was coming when they created the 501C3 tax free status. They just wanted to speed things up for obvious reasons. (Rev. 12:12) Once the churches fell for the carrot of mammon (money) dangling before their eyes and incorporated with the state, they had no more say as to what they could or could not do, or could or could not preach. This is why we saw the sudden change in the IRS back in the 80’s regarding any and all new churches that forced them to comply with Catholic dogma if they desired tax free status. That “testing of the waters” telegraphed the obvious greed of the “preachers of filthy lucre” to those holding the strings. They knew they could play the pastors as easy as puppets because the cash they were making via the “tax break” proved to be a powerful idol to them. Now when antichristian laws pop up as prophecied, the greedy pastors have no choice but to go along. If they don’t, the IRS will remove their cherished idol and slap millions of dollars of fines and penalties on them forcing them into literal bankruptcy. Seeing how easy that was to pull off, it was a no-brainer to predict the following executive order would be penned by the Bush administration on March 7, 2006.

Pope Francis I ... the Last Pope
Revelation 13:5-6 (KJV) "And there was given (March 13, 2013 to September 13, 2016) unto him (Pope Francis) a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months (3.5 years/1260 days). And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him (Pope Francis) to make war with the saints (remnant who come out of all 501c3 tax exempt non-profit churches and organizations) (through Protestant 501c3 church organizations and their leaders who became government agents March 7, 2006), and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear."

March 7, 2006 all 501c3 "non-profit" churches and independent groups became government agencies.

Wilderness means the church in my house, home groups, obscurity and seclusion from powers that want to control.

Revelation 17:3  "So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns."

" So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness (home groups worshiping God in Spirit and in Truth who are NOT members of any 501c3 (non-prophet-without God & the Spirit of Christ), non-profit church organization or independent group): and I saw a woman (Catholicism Pope Francis) sit upon a scarlet coloured beast (Protestantism in America), full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads (Vatican 7 hills/7 popes=eighth King/pope goes down into perdition) and ten horns."

Fema: United Nations Death By Guillotine Sunday Law 666 Mark of Beast. The penalty for not complying with the Sunday law will increasingly escalate making it difficult for Christ's followers to keep the true 7th day Saturday Sabbath. Consequently, many will be martyred in defense of Christ's true 7th Day Saturday Sabbath. The Greatest Christian Persecution in history begins by 2016?. Since the end of the 3 1/2 years (42 months/1260 days) March 19, 2013 to September 19, 2016, cut short by 25 days which comes to Aug 5, 2016, signals the end of probation, the one hour, spoken of in Revelation 17:12-13, Revelation 18:17, Babylon the prostitute of chapter 17 will be destroyed by the kings of the earth. (Rev. 17 v.16) The kings who destroy the Babylon of chapter 17 rejoice. In the Babylon of chapter 18, the kings and merchants lament and weep for her (Rev. 18 v.9-15). The fall of Babylon will be a symbol of the fall of the entire evil world system. And again Babylon is pictured as a harlot whose death causes her lovers to weep and lament over her.

The Seventh Plague and the Special Resurrection

There is a mighty earthquake, "such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great" (Rev. 16:17, 18). The firmament appears to open and shut. The glory from the throne of God seems flashing through. The mountains shake like a reed in the wind, and ragged rocks are scattered on every side. . . . The whole earth heaves and swells like the waves of the sea. Its surface is breaking up. Its very foundations seem to be giving way. Mountain chains are sinking. Inhabited islands disappear. The seaports that have become like Sodom for wickedness are swallowed up by the angry waters. . . . Great hailstones, every one "about the weight of a talent," are doing their work of destruction (verses 19, 21) . . . .

Graves are opened, and "many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth . . . awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt" (Dan. 12:2). All who have died in the faith of the third  angel's message come forth from the tomb glorified to hear God's covenant of peace with those who have

272

kept His law. "They also which pierced Him" (Rev. 1:7), those that mocked and derided Christ's dying agonies, and the most violent opposers of His truth and His people, are raised to behold Him in His glory, and to see the honour placed upon the loyal and obedient.--GC 636, 637 (1911).

God Announces the Time of Christ's Coming Dark, heavy clouds came up and clashed against each other. The atmosphere parted and rolled back. Then we could look up through the open space in Orion, whence came the voice of God.--EW 41 (1851).  

Soon we heard the voice of God[1. THE VOICE OF GOD IS HEARD REPEATEDLY DURING THE PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING CHRIST'S RETURN. SEE THE GREAT CONTROVERSY, PP. 632, 633, 636, 638, 640, 641.] 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.--EW 15 (1851).

As God spoke the day and the hour of Jesus' coming, and delivered the everlasting covenant to His people, He spoke one sentence, and then paused, while the words were rolling through the earth. The Israel of God stood with their eyes fixed upward, listening to the words as they came from the mouth of Jehovah and rolled through the earth like peals of loudest thunder. It was awfully solemn. At the end of every sentence the saints shouted, "Glory! Hallelujah!" Their

273

countenances were lighted up with the glory of God, and they shone with glory as did the face of Moses when he came down from Sinai. The wicked could not look upon them for the glory. And when the never-ending blessing was pronounced on those who had honoured God in keeping His Sabbath holy, there was a mighty shout of victory over the beast and over his image.--EW 285, 286 (1858).

I have not the slightest knowledge as to the time  spoken by the voice of God. I heard the hour proclaimed, but had no remembrance of that hour after I came out of vision. Scenes of such thrilling, solemn interest passed before me as no language is adequate to describe. It was all a living reality to me, for close upon this scene appeared the great white cloud, upon which was seated the Son of man.--1SM 76 (1888).

The Terror of the Lost

When the earth is reeling to and fro like a drunkard, when the heavens are shaking and the great day of the Lord has come, who shall be able to stand? One object they behold in trembling agony from which they will try in vain to escape. "Behold, He cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see Him" (Rev. 1:7). The unsaved utter wild imprecations to dumb nature--their god: "Mountains and rocks, fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne" (Rev. 6:16).--TMK 356 (1896).

When the voice of God turns the captivity of His people, there is a terrible awakening of those who have

274

lost all in the great conflict of life. . . . The gain of a lifetime is swept away in a moment. The rich bemoan the destruction of their grand houses, the scattering of their gold and silver. . . . The wicked are filled with regret, not because of their sinful neglect of God and their fellow men, but because God has conquered. They lament that the result is what it is, but they do not repent of their wickedness.--GC 654 (1911).

Jesus Descends in Power and Glory

Soon there appears in the east a small black cloud, about half the size of a man's hand. It is the cloud which surrounds the Saviour, and which seems in the distance to be shrouded in darkness. The people of God know this to be the sign of the Son of man. In solemn silence they gaze upon it as it draws nearer the earth, becoming lighter and more glorious, until it is a great white cloud, its base a glory like consuming fire, and above it the rainbow of the covenant. Jesus rides forth as a mighty conqueror. . . .

With anthems of celestial melody the holy angels, a vast, unnumbered throng, attend Him on His way. The firmament seems filled with radiant forms--"ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands." No human pen can portray the scene, no mortal mind is adequate to conceive its splendour. . . .  

The King of kings descends upon the cloud, wrapped in flaming fire. The heavens are rolled together as a scroll, the earth trembles before Him, and every mountain and island is moved out of its place.--GC 640-642 (1911).

275

The Reaction of Those Who Pierced Him

Those who have acted the most prominent part in the rejection and crucifixion of Christ come forth to see Him as He is, and those who have rejected Christ come up and see the saints glorified, and it is at  that time that the saints are changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, and are caught up to meet their Lord in the air. The very ones who placed upon Him the purple robe and put the crown of thorns upon His brow, and those who put the nails through His hands and feet, look upon Him and bewail.--9MR 252 (1886).

They remember how His love was slighted and His compassion abused. They think of how Barabbas, a  murderer and a robber, was chosen in His stead, how Jesus was crowned with thorns and scourged and crucified, how in the hours of His agony on the cross the priests and rulers taunted Him, saying, "Let Him come down from the cross, and we will believe Him. He saved others, Himself He cannot save." All the insult and despite offered to Christ, all the suffering caused to His disciples, will be as fresh in their recollection as when the satanic deeds were done. The voice which they heard so often in entreaty and persuasion will again sound in their ears. Every tone of gracious solicitation will vibrate as distinctly in their ears as when the Saviour spoke in the synagogues and on the street. Then those who pierced Him will call on the rocks and mountains to fall on them and hide them from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb.--Letter 131, 1900.

276

"Awake, Ye That Sleep, and Arise!"

The clouds begin to roll back like a scroll and there is the bright, clear sign of the Son of man. The children of God know what that cloud means. The sound of music is heard, and as it nears, the graves are opened and the dead are raised.--9MR 251, 252 (1886).

"Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, and shall come forth" [John 5:28, 29]. This voice is soon to resound through all the nations of the dead, and every saint who sleeps in Jesus shall awake and leave his prison house.--Ms 137, 1897.

The precious dead, from Adam down to the last saint who dies, will hear the voice of the Son of God and  will come forth from the grave to immortal life.--DA 606 (1898).

Amid the reeling of the earth, the flash of lightning, and the roar of thunder, the voice of the Son of God calls forth the sleeping saints. He looks upon the graves of the righteous, then, raising His hands to heaven, He cries: "Awake, awake, awake, ye that sleep in the dust, and arise!" Throughout the length and breadth of the earth the dead shall hear that voice, and they that hear shall live. And the whole earth shall ring with the tread of the exceeding great army of every nation, kindred, tongue, and people. From the prison house of death they come, clothed with immortal glory, crying: "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?" (1 Cor. 15:55).

277

And the living righteous and the risen saints unite their voices in a long, glad shout of victory.--GC 644 (1911).

From Caves and Dens and Dungeons

In the fastnesses of the mountains, in the caves and dens of the earth, the Saviour reveals His presence and His glory.  

Yet a little while, and He that is to come will come and will not tarry. His eyes as a flame of fire penetrate into the fast-closed dungeons and hunt out the hidden ones, for their names are written in the Lamb's book of life. The eyes of the Saviour are above us, around us, noting every difficulty, discerning every danger; and there is no place where His eyes cannot penetrate, no sorrows and sufferings of His people where the sympathy of Christ does not reach. . . .

The child of God will be terror-stricken at the first sight of the majesty of Jesus Christ. He feels that he cannot live in His holy presence. But the word comes to him as to John, "Fear not." Jesus laid His right hand upon John; He raised him up from his prostrate position. So will He do unto His loyal, trusting ones.--TMK 360, 361 (1886).

The heirs of God have come from garrets, from hovels, from dungeons, from scaffolds, from mountains, from deserts, from the caves of the earth, from the caverns of the sea.--GC 650 (1911).

From Ocean Depths and Mines and Mountains

When Christ comes to gather to Himself those who

278

have been faithful, the last trump will sound, and the whole earth, from the summits of the loftiest mountains to the lowest recesses of the deepest mines, will hear. The righteous dead will hear the sound of the last trump, and will come forth from their graves, to be clothed with immortality and to meet their Lord.--7BC 909 (1904).

I dwell with pleasure upon the resurrection of the just, who shall come forth from all parts of the earth, from rocky caverns, from dungeons, from caves of the earth, from the waters of the deep. Not one is overlooked. Every one shall hear His voice. They will come forth with triumph and victory.--Letter 113, 1886.

What a scene will these mountains and hills [in Switzerland] present when Christ, the Lifegiver, shall call forth the dead! They will come from caverns, from dungeons, from deep wells, where their bodies have been buried.--Letter 97, 1886.  

The Wicked Are Slain

In the mad strife of their own fierce passions, and by the awful outpouring of God's unmingled wrath, fall the wicked inhabitants of the earth--priests, rulers, and people, rich and poor, high and low. "And the slain of the Lord shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried" (Jer. 25:33).

At the coming of Christ the wicked are blotted from the face of the whole earth--consumed with the spirit of

279

His mouth and destroyed by the brightness of His glory. Christ takes His people to the city of God, and the earth is emptied of its inhabitants.--GC 657 (1911).

To sin, wherever found, "our God is a consuming fire" (Heb. 12:29). In all who submit to His power the Spirit of God will consume sin. But if men cling to sin, they become identified with it. Then the glory of God, which destroys sin, must destroy them.--DA 107 (1898).

The glory of His countenance, which to the righteous is life, will be to the wicked a consuming fire.--DA 600 (1898).

Destruction of the Wicked an Act of Mercy

Could those whose hearts are filled with hatred of God, of truth and holiness, mingle with the heavenly throng and join their songs of praise? Could they endure the glory of God and the Lamb? No, no; years of probation were granted them, that they might form characters for heaven; but they have never trained the mind to love purity; they have never learned the language of heaven, and now it is too late. A life of rebellion against God has unfitted them for heaven.

Its purity, holiness, and peace would be torture to them; the glory of God would be a consuming fire. They would long to flee from that holy place. They would welcome destruction, that they might be hidden from the face of Him who died to redeem them. The destiny of the wicked is fixed by their own choice. Their exclusion from heaven is voluntary with themselves,

280

and just and merciful on the part of God.--GC 542, 543 (1911).

Homeward Bound!

The living righteous are changed "in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye." At the voice of God they were glorified; now they are made immortal, and with the risen saints are caught up to meet their Lord in the air. Angels "gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other." Little children are borne by holy angels to their mothers' arms. Friends long separated by death are united, nevermore to part, and with songs of gladness ascend together to the city of God.--GC 645 (1911).

We all entered the cloud together, and were seven days ascending to the sea of glass.--EW 16 (1851).  

And as the chariot rolled upward, the wheels cried, "Holy," and the wings, as they moved, cried, "Holy," and the retinue of holy angels around the cloud cried, "Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty!" And the saints in the cloud cried, "Glory! Alleluia!"--EW 35 (1851).

Oh, how glorious it will be to see Him and be welcomed as His redeemed ones! Long have we waited, but our hope is not to grow dim. If we can but see the King in His beauty we shall be forever blessed. I feel as if I must cry aloud, "Homeward bound!"--8T 253 (1904).

281

The Angels Sing, Christ Has Conquered!

In that day the redeemed will shine forth in the glory of the  Father and the Son. The angels, touching their golden harps, will welcome the King and His trophies of victory--those who have been washed and made white in the blood of the Lamb. A song of triumph will peal forth, filling all heaven. Christ has conquered. He enters the heavenly courts, accompanied by His redeemed ones, the witnesses that His mission of suffering and sacrifice has not been in vain.--9T 285, 286 (1909).

With unutterable love, Jesus welcomes His faithful ones to the joy of their Lord. The Saviour's joy is in seeing in the kingdom of glory the souls that have been saved by His agony and humiliation.--GC 647 (1911).

In the results of His work Christ will behold its recompense. In that great multitude which no man could number, presented "faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy," He whose blood has  redeemed and whose life has taught us "shall see of the travail of His soul, and shall be satisfied."--Ed 309 (1903).

The Saints Given Crowns and Harps

I saw a very great number of angels bring from the city glorious crowns--a crown for every saint, with his name written thereon. As Jesus called for the crowns, angels presented them to Him, and with His own right hand, the lovely Jesus placed the crowns on the heads of the saints.--EW 288 (1858).

On the sea of glass the 144,000 stood in a perfect square. Some of them had very bright crowns, others not so bright. Some crowns appeared heavy with stars, while others had but few. All were perfectly satisfied with their crowns.--EW 16, 17 (1851).

The crown of life will be bright or dim, will glitter with many stars, or be lighted by few gems, in accordance with our own course of action.--6BC 1105 (1895).

There will be no one saved in heaven with a starless crown. If you enter, there will be some soul in the courts of glory that has found an entrance there through your instrumentality.--ST June 6, 1892.

Before entering the city of God, the Saviour bestows upon His followers the emblems of victory, and invests them with the insignia of their royal state. The glittering ranks are drawn up in the form of a hollow square about their King. . . . Upon the heads of the overcomers, Jesus with His own right hand places the crown of glory. . . . In every hand are placed the victor's palm and the shining harp. Then, as the commanding angels strike the note, every hand sweeps the harp strings with skilful touch, awaking sweet music in rich, melodious strains. . . . Before the ransomed throng is the holy city. Jesus opens wide the pearly gates, and the nations that have kept the truth enter in.--GC 645, 646 (1911).


This is a lot, but I have so much more that have made me come to these conclusions. God bless you and keep you always in His loving care!
