BABYLON IS FALLEN – CHAPTER 11
The “Who” Reveals the “What”
The “What” Reveals the “Who”
The Seventh Seal Opened
By Michael unto the Author
If there is a death in the family of a distant relative and we receive notification that we are remembered with a monetary amount from the deceased’s estate as our inheritance, how would we know that the person showing up at the door was the person or executor of the will authorized to disseminate the monetary amount or inheritance to us? If his name matches the name on the notification that we received, this is one indicator, but not enough to solidify he is that executor to give us our inheritance. However, when he reaches into his brief case and hands us the amount in question as a check drawn on the estate of the deceased, which we then cash at the bank verifying our inheritance in hand, we can be sure he is the executor by what we received from him.
In reverse, if a man shows up at our door and hands us a check drawn on the estate of the deceased for the amount stated in the will without introducing himself, we can be reasonably sure on the preponderance of this evidence that he is the executor, further verified by him giving us his name, that matches the one authorized in the original notification document. One proves the other. One complements the other.
Messiah Coming in the Name Identified in the Bible
Dispensing the Anointing, Thus Proves He Is Messiah.
If We Received the Anointing, from the Man
With the Name Identified in the Bible to Dispense It
Then that Man IS Messiah.
The Anointing is the Holy Spirit,
The Mindset of God in Messiah
Communicated to Us, Giving Us
A Clear Foundational Understanding of Truth
That Leads into ALL Further Truth.
The silence in Revelation 8:1 is what one hears if he is still sealed out, no understanding. We will discuss the relevance of the “half hour” shortly. However, once the seal is opened, we have “WHO” it is . . . that will bring Redemption and “WHAT,” is the Redemption message he brings, that truth that brings full deliverance. Christians will say that it is Jesus Christ. Jews will say it is Messiah. They both are correct, but under what name??? It must be understood how it applies to the coming of Messiah and in what name he MUST come, in the FINAL and FULL Redemption and Resurrection. Otherwise, we have received a deception, brought in the wrong name, and therefore we have received an antichrist, imbibed a false message as being the truth.
Now those nominal and elementary in their study of the Bible will immediately go to the Book of Philippians and rightly raise question because Apostle Paul says:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
The Question Then Rises from the Serious Seeker
To what “Jesus” or “Jesus Christ” would every knee bow? He said in Matthew 24:4-5, that many would come in that name and deceive many. It must be Messiah, proven to be so, by revealing the truth in the Sealed Book.
What Book Is Opened,
Once the Seals Are Removed???
the other truths behind the previous seals, once they are opened, we can see
they are also in the Bible bringing the Bible into a perspective not seen
before. However, the Book, in the hand of God on the throne taken by the Lamb
and opened, is NOT the Law and the Prophets. Certainly, the Law and the
Prophets are opened as well which, once opened for understanding, clarifies the
New Testament and especially the Book of Revelation, all heretofore NOT
UNDERSTOOD, but coming to clarity once opened by Messiah unto us. The
sealing on the Law and Prophets and particularly Daniel is identified in the
statement “shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end”
12:4, the mysteries of God finished as He has declared to His servants
the Prophets, Revelation
10:7, and finally “the books were opened,” Rev
20:12, indicating they were not understood from the proper source or
foundation, until the “time of the end.” Daniel specifies “the time of end,”
when that knowledge would increase which is NOT secular or scientific progress
as many stated as their reason to believe they could venture into Daniel and
understand it. It is narrowed to what timing must elapse first before it is
opened, and what it would give when opened in
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 swear by him that lives forever 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.
The timing of the Last Half of the 70th Week, time, time and a half, 3 and ½ years, which is 42 months, which is 1260 days, would have to be fulfilled first, and Messiah, Michael, through the process of the 2300 days and that cleansing of the sanctuary of Israel’s strength, would scatter or broadcast the power, “that strength,” of the holy people. The end of that opening of the books, the Law and the Prophets is not redemption, for it is not found clearly stated there, where only judgment is revealed and hope of redemption in Messiah, NOT THE FULLNESS OF KNOWLEDGE, UNDERSTANDING, AND WISDOM, HE HAS TO GIVE WHICH BRINGS, AND IS, REDEMPTION.
Again, we see the complementary relationship. On one hand, Messiah opens the Seals to us proving he is Messiah. On the other, the Seals being opened to us can only come from One Source, Messiah. The Seals, stated to be upon the backside of The Book in Revelation 5, being opened or loosed yields in turn the ability to understand the Law and the Prophets, equally opening them. The “precept upon precept,” “line upon line,” of the Word of the Lord as stated in Isaiah 28:7-20, are then orderly, thus showing proper progression and the end in view.
YET . . . . it is in having the other little book, Rev 10:1-11, another book, the Lamb’s Book of Life, Rev 20:11-15, opened to us in the full knowledge, understanding, and wisdom from Messiah, that solely brings redemption, the faith of Abraham which he had prior to any written record. Once having that, the Holy Spirit, we then can understand having the key to open the books of the Law and Prophets and see the scriptures via the Spirit in the Prophets that wrote them, and the same Spirit in the Messiah and his Apostles that understood them.
Previously the Bible, well proven by the various interpretations and sects of religion claiming insight, remained confusing so that we would fall backward and are taken by a carnal and childlike view. Messiah, the same one in Isaiah 28 that has the “plummet” and “line,” puts things in the proper sequence, by proper interpretation. Like so many pieces of an enormous jigsaw puzzle that are assimilated from one’s assembly table to form the correct picture on the front of the box containing those pieces, God, as to His nature toward us, appears then in a more mature light for maturing Sons. We begin to understand His purpose in the overall way He has dealt with mankind through history to this point. In bringing that understanding, the childlike view, and the lack of confidence we have toward Him, begins to dissipate as His purpose in us becomes clear.
The Book of Redemption Opened
It is in this manner we say the Seals, once removed, also open the Book of Redemption. Therefore, Messiah brings Redemption in that he opens the book removing the seals, which contain eternal life, yielding the ability to then open the understanding of the Law and the Prophets as well. It is the knowledge and understanding contained in the little Sealed Book that brings Redemption. Redemption is only relevant when something is lost and needs to be recovered. In ancient and modern times, it is referenced when something is “pawned” or “placed in hock” for a loan against that “something” or “merchandise.” When the merchandise is redeemed, it has the loan or price returned to the pawnbroker where the object can be freed from all liens and responsibilities and given back to the original owner. When we or mankind in Adam and Eve left our first estate of confidence in God and died spiritually, we put into hock our link with God, which is life, for the reward of acting (as we thought) as a separate entity from God, being a minor god under the illusion of self-destiny and freewill. A price was required for us to have that proper life and connection with God returned. The price required was our death to that illusion, to wake up to reality, burying the understanding that we thought was life. To put it another way our price we must pay for redemption, is dying to death, “death” being our false understanding. This is the full force of
And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them.
In other words, we died initially by taking our own understanding, but did not realize what the ‘death’ was. We only knew our link to God was lost, which also took our confidence away as well, yielding an existence of fear and uncertainty depending on one’s own decision-making process. As we have shown previously in Chapter 10, this is “death” with “hell” following as part of this package in contrast to “life” and “heaven” which are God’s mindset and the confident existence following, from being in the seat of true understanding respectively. Only recognizing that we are born as natural mankind dead spiritually, and thereby accepting that our understanding is short of the glory of God, immature, not reality, being the death or instrument of death, can we pay the price of death, killing or cutting off the false understanding, which action is required so that we can receive life which is proper understanding. Again, that is the already dead, natural man, dying in the Lord and rising in the understanding and mindset that Messiah also has, the Holy Spirit, which is life indeed, restoring our link and confidence with God.
Uncertainty: Hell Follows or Accompanies
The Condition of Being Spiritually Dead
was lost due to Adam not being in full understanding, and yet proceeding to act
as if he indeed had it. From that point, he died or was spiritually cut off from
a proper understanding of God and therefore cut off from life, by taking what
he perceived to be his own understanding. Thus, when mankind is redeemed, it
will be by restoring his link to life, God. This is what also delivers one from
hell, which is the uncertain existence of depending upon oneself and its
accompanying lack of confidence.
Adam did not attain to God’s image and likeness, which was the goal for him, but stopped short. When having the revelation of truth opened behind the Seals, which is given to us based upon Messiah’s voice of truth opening the Book of Redemption, revealing the Everlasting Good news that God is Sovereign, that we indeed do His good pleasure, we then have the eternal one revealed and eternal life via giving to us proper understanding. This states we did not do it, we are God manifested in the flesh, we are redeemed back to our relationship of confidence in God and life, which Adam lost before he came to that fullness we now can have. In THAT, we are carried even further to Full Son maturity; something Adam never had, the goal in God’s statement “let us make man in our image and likeness,” even as Messiah also is.
Michael’s quick summary here: A criminal can be redeemed from the prison house, but he is still a criminal. So therefore, he is still guilty. The only way he can be brought back to being innocent is that he must understand the full truth. That truth is . . . that we did not do it, God did it, is doing it, and will yet do it – God in us to will and do His good pleasure. It is fully revealed, understood, truth only, where we are found innocent. Blood atonement covers us to get out of jail, but it is being born again by the Word of God, the truth revealed, understood, God in us, that eliminates guilt and restores our confidence toward God. This is completely handled in the message, THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, the mandatory read, as we have stated before reading BABYLON IS FALLEN, and again after. It is the message in the little book of Rev 10, called another book, the Lamb’s Book of Life, which is the key and ability to open the other books of the Law and Prophets with understanding. It is hence one follows the other, the Everlasting Gospel received first, then releases the Law and the Prophets to be written on the heart in understanding.
In What Name Will Their Promised Redemption Come???
In researching the Will and Testament of that Inheritance, the Bible, we have the name of Messiah in FULL Redemption at the end time in a name “written” according to Revelation 19:11-13 where it states:
… he has a name written, that no man knew but he himself…
It goes on to say:
… his name is called the Word of God…
In Revelation 2:17 we see it is he that overcomes that is given:
… a white stone, and in that stone a new name written, which no man knows saving he that receives it…
In Revelation 3:12 we read again to him that overcomes:
… I (Jesus Christ that is talking in this scripture to John) will write upon him MY new name…
In Revelation 3:21, we perceive the first and primary overcomer, as the example to others, so that they may ALSO overcome, is Messiah:
To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
Now just where do we expect to find this name that IS ALREADY written that only Messiah knows is his name for the Final Appearing or Second Coming in victory??? Where else but the Law and the Prophets, where it says in Isaiah 52, in speaking of the final Redemption of Israel in verse 6:
Therefore, my people shall know my name: therefore, they shall know IN THAT DAY (once Messiah is here and reveals it with understanding, even as he did with the Apostles) that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I.
Clearly it is indeed written in the Law and the Prophets and is “Michael the Great Prince” of Daniel 10:21 and 12:1-7. In short, Jesus of the New Testament returns under a new name, which is not a new name just decided out of thin air, but the one he had all along “written” in the Law and the Prophets. We see it is Michael the Archangel, or Chief Messenger of the Covenant according to Malachi 3:1, which is the proper translation of Jude 9:
Yet Michael the archangel (Chief Messenger), 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.
As the other, earlier believers with pure truth that entered the Heavenly Holy of Holies with Christ and therefore had the Holy Spirit that brings understanding, wherewith they wrote the epistles / letters in the New Testament, Jude was speaking from the Law and the Prophets and in particular,
1 And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.
2 And the Lord said unto Satan, The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan; even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?
So, we see in Jude 9 it says Michael said: “the Lord rebuke thee.” In Zechariah 3:2, it says the Lord said these words. Therefore, Michael and the Lord are the same person. This meaning is displayed by Paul in his statements in I Thessalonians 4:13-5:11 as they compare with Jesus’ words in John 5:24-29 when Paul says in verse 16:
I Thessalonians 4:16
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ rise first (The proper reading of this scripture says the dead, Israel which remains unconverted, that Paul said there was no need to worry about, as though that they had no hope, would rise first in Christ. And,…. Christians that are spiritually alive in Christ, and physically remain on earth at the time of his coming, would be joined with those of the household of Israel raised first to meet the Lord. So shall both of them be forever with the Lord.):
And then Jesus states in John 5:24-29:
“. . . the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God (the voice of resurrection in the Chief Messenger, the archangel). . .”
Michael of Daniel
10:21 and 12:1-7 is the name in the end time of the same Messiah, Jesus Christ that
was present in 26-30 CE the First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week. It is clearly revealed with understanding in
the opening of the Seventh Seal by the one with that name, however, . . . ONLY when
he is present again.
Again, the Law and Prophets set Precedent, and So It Is with “The Name”
type or shadow of this shift in name, whereby it is publicly presented, is
first established in Messiah ben (son of) Joseph. “Joseph” was the original
name known to Israel. Once rejected, he
came to prominence as “Zaphnathpaaneah” and ruled over Egypt as stated in
Genesis 41:38-46. Once restored to his brethren, he was once again known to them
as “Joseph.” So, we see through Daniel, before Jesus entered the picture, prophetically
Michael is the name to Israel for future deliverance based upon Israel’s
repentance, accepting his rule over them, in contrast to the spirit of the
“Willful King,” as given in Daniel
11:45 moving to Daniel 12:1.
Like Joseph, he was rejected. Under the name “Jesus,” he came to reign over the predominantly Gentile world, today called Christendom, Acts 4:10-12, which by superficial reading may lead one to believe that no other name was needed other than the name “Jesus” given by Mary, his mother, at the direction of Gabriel, Luke 1:26-31.
Key Point to understanding this scripture, Acts 4:10-12, is the statement “under heaven.” Once restored to Israel and his brethren, he will be known as “Michael” once again in full deliverance in the redemption to the kingdom of God which is heavenly not earthly. That redemption is promised to come in the name “Michael,” first to Israel and then to the Gentile world, which is direct from God, and recorded in the prophets, before Jesus was ever born. Also notice in that scenario, that it was after Joseph was reunited with Jacob and the family, called a nation in Genesis 25:23 and 46:3 that according to Genesis 47, all of Egypt and Canaan was solidified under Joseph. This is directly the same, as will be the case as given in all the Prophets when Israel comes to Messiah as Michael, in change of government under him, where all the nations will then also come to the spiritual bread of life and the redemption, Amos 8:11, Isaiah 2:1-4, Zechariah 14, Jeremiah 31:34, Zephaniah 3:9, Habakkuk 2:14.
Breaking Down the Name, Its Parts and Meanings
In Hebrew, Daniel 12:1 translates as Mi-cha-El, “who-is like-God,” Ha-Tsar, “the-Prince,” Ha-Gadol, “the-Great.” Like many languages other than English, the adjectives come after, rather than before, the noun. This is true of French for example where “la voiture blanche,” means “the white car” but is actually spoken as it is written here, “the car white.” So, we have Mi cha el, Ha Tsar, Ha Gadol in Hebrew, literally in English “Michael - the Prince - the Great,” spoken in common English order “Michael, the Great Prince.” In Hebrew, Michael HaTsar HaGadol, in English is “Michael Craig Clark.”
In further examination of the name Clark, it comes originally from the word “priest” and came to be later known as “clergyman,” in Greek terms and in English “clerk.” Historically, the clergy was authorized to keep the records of births, deaths, marriages, or ancestral records which made them the “clerk.” Therefore, a “clark” was a clergyman. Biblically Israel’s clergymen were priests. Thus, if Messiah came to Israel, what name would he bear? It would be “High Priest,” because he is Melchizedek, the High Priest, who is like God.
We have Messianic prophecy that appears to say this is true of the parties Hilkiah (High Priest, II Kings 23:4) and his son Eliakim, actually mentioned or stated within that prophecy of Isaiah 22. However, it is clearly pointing to the end time fulfillment of all prophecy in Messiah, the Great High Priest. This is also the fulfillment of the Priesthood of the highest order, long before there was any Aaronic Priesthood, as one can perceive in that which appeared to Abraham, Melchizedek meaning Melchi - “my king” Zedek “righteous,” in English “my righteous king,” that introduces that which is eternal, not temporary, but forever, in the message he brings which is THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL (Gospel of the Kingdom), that puts us in direct relationship to God as Father, through His manifested Son, according to Genesis 14:18-20, Psalms 110, and Hebrews 7.
Because Messiah does not come in the order of the Aaronic priesthood under the Law of Moses, he comes after the heavenly priesthood after the order of Melchizedek, Hebrews 7, it follows that because he is the “HIGH Priest” after that order, his name would have to indicate such. We see this in:
27 Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?
28 She dwelleth and abides on the rock, upon the CRAG of the rock, and the strong place.
From thence she seeks the prey, and her eyes behold afar off.
30 Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is she.
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
Therefore, the full name in which Israel would be expecting Messiah would be Michael Craig Clark, The High Priest, who is like God, after the order of Melchizedek.
Any timing is marked by a clear place to start that time and a clear place to end it. We have seen from Revelation 2:17, 3:12, 3:21, and Revelation 19:11-13, the new name was understood only by Messiah, although once revealed from the Bible by him, we can enter with understanding as well, as presented above. Therefore, ALL that he is given as to understanding by God that sits upon the throne in Revelation 4, also written in the Sealed Book of Revelation 5, we can understand also, through Messiah, the Lion and the Lamb that takes the Book, being found worthy to open it unto us, bringing Full Redemption.
When Was that Sealed Book
FULLY Opened to the Messiah???
Following the Path to Blessing
The Importance of Daniel 9:24.
Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Holy.
Messiah Does Not Know
Until God Gives Him Understanding
Messiah Did NOT Know “How Long”?!?!
As we have stressed from Luke 21, Acts 1, and Christ’s answers to his disciples, he knew “what” but not “when” of the Second Coming Mark 13:32, Acts 1:6-7. The crucial point here is that Messiah is given knowledge at the appointed time, giving him those answers and end to the mysteries only partially given to him in his First Ministry. This revelation, given with the missing factor of “when” or a clear understanding of timing, left the Apostles and true believers, uninformed in certain things until the time of the end when he would be here again and have the complete package or the Seven Seals removed releasing the understanding withheld behind them.
THE QUESTION: WHEN WOULD HE REVEAL THE FULL SEVEN SEALED MYSTERY???
What Did Messiah and Those
Of the First Resurrection Have and NOT Have
From 30 CE Onward???
They Had the Truth behind the First Four Seals,
Broad Knowledge, But NOT Specific, of the Sixth and
Seventh Seal as to the “How” and Who”
Of the Finished Plan of Redemption.
They, Like Messiah, Did NOT Know
The “When” of the Fifth Seal
They knew God as controlling ALL things, meticulously by the counsel of His preordained and predetermined Will, the truth behind the First Seal. They were quite clear that God was as much in control of a believer as an unbeliever, thus in ALL men working His Will, so they approached and treated everyone according to this knowledge, the truth behind the Second Seal. They were clear by this standard as to those ordained to be false prophets, the truth behind the Third Seal. Finally, they understood the truth and right message and measure given by the Messiah, which exposed the false prophets’ false message, exposed behind the Fourth Seal. In summary, they COMPLETELY had the truth behind the First Four Seals. They knew much about the way the Second Coming would occur as to the removal of Israel’s government and confidence just before that time, the truth behind the Sixth Seal in the broad view, however short of the meticulous details, symbolized in metaphors to John by Messiah concerning the end time. They understood that Michael was Messiah, the general truth behind the Seventh Seal, but NOT HOW or WHEN he would know the remainder of what was needed for the final sequence of events and the FULL Redemption extended to all mankind thereby, thus they had no FULL insight into the half hour of silence which IS the Seventh Seal. As far as TOTAL revelation they understood only the truth behind the First Four Seals, the true nature of God in the First Two, and the true nature of that which stood opposed in the Third and Fourth.
Whatever Messiah Had to Give, They Received.
It Is Called the “Seal of God” or the “Holy Spirit.”
It Is a Clear Understanding as a Foundation of ALL Truth
Thus, Leading One, on that Foundation, INTO All Truth.
It was FIRST given to Peter as the Keys to the Kingdom. He then, in the upper room, for the next ten days after Christ’s ascension, related all that Christ had revealed unto him in his previous, private meeting with Messiah in John 21. The original Apostles received the anointing as well as the 120 on the Day of Pentecost, from where some of Israel received the same in Acts 2 and 3 as a record of some of the first believers outside of the upper room.
What Was Withheld???
The Fifth Seal was not opened unto the Messiah nor the Apostles and the remainder of those with them. Also, many details, due to that timing being unknown could not be related as well, as to the fine points behind the Sixth Seal, just when Israel would be brought back into God’s dealing directly removing their government of opposition and establishing proper government under the Sovereignty of God through Messiah. However, they knew the end or goal in view that the government of Messiah was to be established in Jerusalem overturning current government that denied Messiah, and upon that, all blessing to Israel and then the world was contingent.
The Full Revelation Is Revealed in
“the space of about Half an Hour,”
Under the New Name Ordained for Full Redemption
Michael, the Great Prince, Michael the High Priest, Melchizedek,
Michael Craig Clark
his name for redemption, he, in the eyewitness of the author, as given in Chapter
10, fulfilled, to the leadership and national Israel, the Last and Remaining
Half of the Covenant Confirmation 70th Week in spring 1984 – fall
1987. As we see in Daniel
9:24, THIS is the requirement: the confirmation by Messiah of the FULL week,
not just half of it. Upon that being finished, the blessing would be given,
with all that was kept in store awaiting that final, fall fulfillment in 1987.
We see further that the Messiah is blest or considered the blessed one that
comes to the 1335th day. So arriving on the 1260th day, he and the author departed
on that 1335th day, as we stated, unbeknown to us that we had been
in the Holy Land for the 1290th and fulfilled the 1335th
day of Daniel
FROM THAT TIME OR ON DECEMBER 4, BEGAN THE FIRST TICK OF THE CLOCK ON THE HALF HOUR OF SILENCE IN HEAVEN. The full 70th Week confirmed and finished, all fall Holy Days confirmed and fulfilled by Messiah, the proof Israel was not in acceptance came on the 1290th day, October 19, 1987, Black Monday Stock Market Crash, the abomination was fully set up with their confidence solidified in total world control. At the 1335 days the Law of Moses and deliverance within the Last Half of the 70th Week was no longer available, and the blessing was solely with the blessed one, Messiah, that departed on that date awaiting the removal of the Zionist regime, so Messiah could rule, “he whose right it is,” Ezekiel 21:24-27.
The Mystery Hidden, Once Revealed to Messiah, Is
The Blessing that Paused the 2300 days at 1335 days.
Now picking back up with our presentation in the last Chapter 10 concerning Christ’s answer to his disciples that:
And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
We find it is here that the remainder, of what God’s Plan entailed, intervenes, that about which there had been no exposure and was kept silent until that time. At the 1335 days, when the Messiah left, seeing no repentance, or understanding in the Holy Land, and Israel in particular, the 2300-day count of Daniel 8:13-14, was shortened, cut short, stopped, paused, by the entry of the “silence in heaven for about the space of half an hour.”
Twenty Years Interpreted from the
Law and the Prophets, In Coordination
with Revelation 8:1, “About the space of half an hour”???
Now let us consider it says: “ABOUT the space of half an hour.” This is Strongs # G5613 meaning “as, like, even as, etc. half an hour.” Let us return to the Law and Prophets for understanding in coordination with the Apostle to the Jews, Peter on this subject. In the Prophet Jeremiah’s record, the final days of tribulation upon Israel are called the “time of Jacob’s trouble,” in:
3 For, lo, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the Lord: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.
4 And these are the words that the Lord spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah.
5 For thus saith the Lord; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace.
6 Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness?
7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the TIME OF JACOB'S TROUBLE, but he shall be saved out of it.
8 For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him:
9 But they shall serve the Lord their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them.
10 Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the Lord; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid.
11 For I am with thee, saith the Lord, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet I will not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.
It is very important to see the setting for this “time of Jacob’s trouble,” as being the surrounding atmosphere of the Coming of David the King or Messiah and the establishment of world peace beginning with Israel. This is the process starting with the removal of the false kingdom of evil as stated in Daniel 7:24-27 and pouring out of judgment in Daniel 9:24-27 upon the desolater of the Promise of Abraham that has kept the blessing from coming to the Israel of God and all nations as stated in:
1 Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curses thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
The question bears answering:
Why call this the “TIME of Jacob’s trouble”? Why not just call it “Jacob’s trouble”? Again, another question is: What is Jacob’s trouble initially as to Jacob’s personal history? We know his name was changed to “Israel” later and, for the most part, that is the name of his collective descendants nationally in scripture with few exceptions that still use “Jacob,” but rarely.
Twenty Years Is the TIME of Jacob’s Trouble
Genesis 31:36-42 a summary description
36 And Jacob was wroth, and chode with Laban: and Jacob answered and said to Laban, What is my trespass? what is my sin, that thou hast so hotly pursued after me?
37 Whereas thou hast searched all my stuff, what hast thou found of all thy household stuff? set it here before my brethren and thy brethren, that they may judge betwixt us both.
38 This twenty years have I been with thee; thy ewes and thy she goats have not cast their young, and the rams of thy flock have I not eaten.
39 That which was torn of beasts I brought not unto thee; I bare the loss of it; of my hand didst thou require it, whether stolen by day, or stolen by night.
40 Thus I was; in the day the drought consumed me, and the frost by night; and my sleep departed from mine eyes.
41 Thus have I been twenty years in thy house; I served thee fourteen years for thy two daughters, and six years for thy cattle: and thou hast changed my wages ten times.
42 Except the God of my father, the God of Abraham, and the fear of Isaac, had been with me, surely thou hadst sent me away now empty. God hath seen mine affliction and the labor of my hands and rebuked thee yesternight.
Jacob’s Trouble Initiates, The Resumption of The Indignation,
At the Time Appointed, After
fulfillment of the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week,
The Blessed One Leaves, 1335 Days, Dec 3, 1987, “The Judgment Shall Sit.”
the 1335th day, the Blessed One departed the Holy Land. We understand as well that this was 75 days
after the finish of the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week which
confirmed the Covenant upon which the Blessing of Daniel 9:24 was contingent. Therefore, we have two simultaneous events,
one private with Messiah outside of the Holy Land receiving blessing and final
revelation, and the other, public with Israel within the Zionist State, still
in its league with Revived Rome / UN / USA that stood against Messiah and
rejected him again as we have shown.
This fully solidified in world control, said to be “set up,” was accomplished in Zionist false confidence of Ezekiel 14:1-11 in Daniel 12:11. The Law of Moses and any reprieve or blessing under that Covenant was no longer available. Yet, the blessing remained with solely one and his government over them no longer under that Covenant. It was fulfilled, confirmed, by Messiah but not honored by those under that Covenant of the Law of Moses, the Zionist regime and leadership, therefore the nation following them, within the timing established of 1260 days. This is proven by the 1290 days, abomination set up, prepared fully, the false victory that was to proceed on to Ezekiel 14:11, when all would come crashing down as the final lesson to Israel to never depart from the Sovereignty of God again.
Again, It Is Important that One Perceives
That Both Settings Are Running Parallel
Much Like a Train on Two Rails
One rail was in the private events with Messiah. There we have the finish and completion of the withheld elements brought into understanding that were left vague or short in the First Ministry of Messiah from 26-30 CE. In particular, those were the understanding of the truth behind the Fifth Seal - the timing or “the when,” and the details behind the Sixth Seal – “the how.” As we will show soon, this introduces the proper placing and understanding of the 7 Trumpets and 7 Plagues accordingly.
The other rail was in the public arena with the Zionist State. There we have the “judgment did sit,” Daniel 7:24-27, Sounding of the Fifth Trumpet and pouring out of the Fifth Plague. We will reveal, along with those public events that mark this out, in due time, that this was sounded and poured out, beginning just after the 1335th day, December 3, 1987, when Michael and the author left the Holy Land. Of course, this will demand, and we will comply with a firm placing of the First Four Trumpets and Plagues as well, before we consider the Fifth in detail.
First Let Us Consider
The Private Side with Messiah
A Day with the Lord as to Time Reference with Us,
Understanding “the space of about half an hour.”
For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
II Peter 3:8
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
So, we see 1000 years, of 365 and ¼ days of 24 hours each, is to the Lord as a day and vice versa. Therefore, about or as, like, even as, one half hour with the Lord is 20 years when we combine that with Jeremiah 30:1-11, the “TIME of Jacob’s Trouble” and Genesis 31:36-42 record of that time of Jacob’s literal trouble and trial, as we quoted in length above. Arithmetically that calculates as follows:
There are 24 hours in a day or 48 half hours in a day. Therefore 1000 years divided by 48 half hours equals 20.8 years for each half hour or ‘about’ 20 years of time with mankind, even as there is about half an hour with God using the 1000 year / 1 day or 24 hours or 48 half hours ratio. 1000 years / 48 half hours = 20.8 years
Now using that reasoning privately, or standing alone, is interesting. Without it at all, we still conclude the “TIME of Jacob’s trouble” was exactly twenty years. With the time in the Seventh Seal being “ABOUT, as, like, even as” the space of half an hour,” we then join that reasoning, no longer standing alone, together with Jeremiah 30:1-11 and Genesis 31:36-42 Therefore, we have a twenty-year period with mankind being about the space of half an hour of silence in heaven, or with God, running from December 3, 1987, to and including all of December 3, 2007, for these 20 years, with December 4, 2007, being the first day outside of this time-period. Further down in this Chapter 11, we will show additional proof that this is the case.
The Significance of “Silence”
The simple truth here is that heaven, or the seat of understanding from God, was SILENT concerning this truth. The Fifth Seal, the meticulous details of the Sixth, and with the original company that had the First Four Seals, the Apostles long departed, other aspects in practical results on the ground as to Michael the Great Prince and the Second Coming in that name were still an enigma of a Sealed Book. Additionally, the placing of the 7 Trumpets and 7 Plagues could not be precise or completely understood until this revelation was completed to Messiah. Those withheld facets of truth, about which there had been silence or no understanding, ARE revealed and made audible for hearing and seeing spiritually to Messiah within that space of about half an hour in heaven which is 20 years on earth.
Fall of 2007 Finished the Final Revelation to Messiah
As the Blessing Given to the Blessed One According to
Haggai 2:11-23, and on December 4, 2007, We Have
“From This Day Will I Bless You (Israel)”
That Blessing Being FULLY in Messiah.
Another Threefold Cord
In summary so far, first we have the arithmetic figuring for the 20 years from December 3, 1987, December 4, 1987, being the first day of those 20 years which ended on December 3, 2007, December 4, 2007, being the first day outside of those 20 years.
we have the fact in the Law and Prophets that Jacob’s literal trouble, upon
which the Prophecy of Jeremiah 30 is based, is 20 years as seen in Genesis 31.
Now, is there a third witness to establish a threefold cord?
The answer is ‘yes,’ and again, totally occurring in a manner that human intervention, to try and affect it and make it come about, would be impossible. All that can be done is to discover this AFTER the fact, or hindsight 20 / 20. Here it IS, from the Law and the Prophets:
11 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Ask now the priests concerning the law, saying,
12 If one bear holy flesh in the skirt of his garment, and with his skirt do touch bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any meat, shall it be holy? And the priests answered and said, No.
13 Then said Haggai, If one that is unclean by a dead body touch any of these, shall it be unclean? And the priests answered and said, It shall be unclean.
14 Then answered Haggai, and said, So is this people, and so is this nation before me, saith the Lord; and so is every work of their hands; and that which they offer there is unclean.
15 And now, I pray you, consider from this day and upward, from before a stone was laid upon a stone in the temple of the Lord:
16 Since those days were, when one came to an heap of twenty measures, there were but ten: when one came to the pressfat for to draw out fifty vessels out of the press, there were but twenty.
17 I smote you with blasting and with mildew and with hail in all the labor of your hands; yet ye turned not to me, saith the Lord.
18 Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the Lord's temple was laid, consider it.
19 Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you.
20 And again the word of the Lord came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying,
21 Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth;
22 And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, everyone by the sword of his brother.
23 In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the Lord, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the Lord of hosts.
Again, here is a portion of scripture that upon the surface appears to be fulfilled right at the time it is given with Zerubbabel being the Messiah. However, the key point to keep in mind is the short phrase in the last verse: “In that day . . .” This is Prophecy applying to the end time and the final appearance and blessing under Messiah, Michael the Great Prince of Daniel 12:1-7.
When analyzing Haggai 2:11-23 in comparison between the Hebrew Bible Calendar and the Julian - Gregorian Calendar with which we are most familiar. December 4, 1987, to December 3, 2007, inclusive is exactly, twenty years of 24-hour days. In Haggai 2:11-23, the day of blessing, initiating perpetual blessing forward, is Kislev, the ninth month on the Hebrew calendar, and the 24th day. In looking at the Perpetual Calendar that compares the tracking of the Hebrew Calendar along with the Julian/Gregorian Calendar, we can see December 4, 2007, the first day outside of the 20 years, IS INDEED Kislev 24 for that year. Here again we have a threefold cord of witness:
1. the 1000 years / 48 half-hours being about a half hour with God or 20 years,
2. Jeremiah 30 and Genesis 31 specifying the TIME of Jacob’s Trouble as 20 years, FROM the end of December 3, 1987, the 1335th day of Daniel 12:12, the day Michael and the author left the Holy Land, to the end of the day December 3, 2007,
3. Finally, the first day outside of that 20-year period is prophesied to be Kislev 24 or the 9th month and the 24th day on the Hebrew Calendar for the year 2007, which IS December 4, 2007, on the Julian / Gregorian, or our current secular, calendar.
Beyond Human Manipulation or Fabrication
Rather, It Is Just an Observed Fact
Again, we can see there is nothing anyone could manipulate or fabricate to try and fulfill anything. Kislev 24, the 9th month and the 24th day, December 4, 2007 IS exactly the first day outside of the 20 years, which IS from December 4, 1987 to December 3, 2007 inclusive, which IS after December 3, 1987, which IS the 1335th day or 75 days from the 1260th day of September 18, 1987, which IS 42 months or 3 and ½ years from March 18, 1984, which IS 2520 years (7x360) from March 18, 537 BCE, the beginning of the 7 Times of the Gentiles.
All the Way to the Call of Abraham
As Detailed in the Following Links
At the End of This Written Summary
Moving back from Spring 537 BCE we come 70 years earlier to the Babylonian Captivity beginning in 607 BCE under the conquests of Nebuchadnezzar. Within the 70 years in the year 586 BCE, we have the First Overturning of Ezekiel 21:24-27, the destruction of Jerusalem and the first Temple. Using two methods we can come to the laying of the foundation of the Temple by Solomon in 1016 BCE. The understanding of the Prophecy of Ezekiel 4:4-6 reveals that the iniquity of Israel and Judah is borne by God for 430 years with the Temple and its rituals, and particularly once a year on the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur, of Leviticus 16. Those years are 430 years from the destruction of 586 BCE back to the beginning of the building of the Temple recorded in I Kings 6:1 and II Chronicles 3:1-2 in the spring of 1016 BCE. As a second record and witness to 430 years, they can be tallied by the sequential adding of the years of the reigns of strictly the Kings of Judah from Solomon to Zedekiah using the precedent of Genesis 49:10 which does not allow for the Kings of Israel after the division of Jeroboam from Rehoboam in I Kings 12. This year 1016 BCE is stated to be the 480th year since the Exodus which by counting backwards is spring of 1495 BCE. When going another 430 years backwards according to Galatians 3:16-17, Exodus 12:40-41 and Genesis 12:1-10, where Abraham is considered the beginning of Israel’s tenure in Egypt as we have previously made clear in our Chapter Three, we come to spring of 1925 BCE. The Law being given in the first year in the wilderness, the year of the Exodus, 1495 BCE with 1496 BCE being the 430th year since the Call of Abraham, brings us to the spring of 1925 BCE for the Call of Abraham. The following two links show first of all, both methods of counting from 586 BCE back to 1016 BCE which is the year of the laying of the foundation of the Temple. The second link shows the times from the Exodus back to the Call of Abraham. The third link shows the times from the Call of Abraham to Adam and Eve.
A Further Witness in the Law of Twenty Years
Before we move to the judgment aspect on Israel transpiring as Messiah receives full disclosure as above stated, we want to remind the reader of the importance of 20 years plus, or just past the completed 20th year, one said to be “twenty years of age” as given in the Law and Prophets according to Exodus 38, Numbers 1; 8; 14; 26; 32, I Chronicles 23, II Chronicles 31, and finally Ezra 3. It is clear that men could not be used in service, until their 21st year was transpiring, 20 years being over and completed as counted from their birth. All those over 20 years being responsible to the blessing and cursing of the Law were not given to enter the land except Joshua and Caleb due to the failures revealed in Numbers 14. Within the 21st year from Nebuchadnezzar’s conquest of Canaan which began in 607 BCE brought the first complete destruction of Jerusalem and the first temple in 586 BCE. Therefore, it follows that having finished his ministry under the Law of Moses and leaving Dec. 3, 1987, Messiah would receive final revelation message within the following twenty years, Dec 4, 1987, to Dec 3, 2007. It is thus the message came forth from that time, for the redemption of Israel and the world on Dec 4, 2007. It established that which was 430 years BEFORE the Covenant of God under the Law of Moses, the faith of Abraham. This was available with the blessing for Israel in the 21st year, beginning Dec 4, 2007, as we have explained meticulously above.
Meanwhile Back in the Holy Land,
As of December 3, 1987, “the Judgment Shall Sit”
Daniel 7:24-27, Daniel 11:40-45, Revelation 9
Like we stated before, Michael’s final words of note associated with our exit from the Holy Land were:
There will be no blessing until this abomination is removed.
just after Michael and the author departed the Holy Land on the 1335th
day of Daniel 12:12, December 3, 1987, we entered the 20 years of blessing
unto Michael. Within those years, he received what was not revealed in his
At the same time this began, the world was drawn to the Arab uprising which exploded in the news from the Zionist State and the Occupied Territories of the West Bank and Gaza called “The Intifada.” The first incident was the stabbing of an Israeli by an Arab Palestinian in Gaza, Dec 6, 1987, the classic 3rd day after the cessation of the Messiah Ministry in Israel.
Classic Third Day
We say “Classic Third Day,” because we remember in Israel’s failure in 537 BCE in the spurious return NOT sanction by Daniel whereby he did not participate, Daniel 9:13; 10:13, he received his answer from Michael, on Nisan 24, the third day after the last week he fasted, Nisan 15-21, 7 days of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, Lev 23:5-8, when Israel looked for, but did NOT receive the blessing of Jeremiah 23:1-8, as we presented in Chapter 4, The Cyrus Deception.
We remember that these Occupied Territories, Gaza, West Bank (Samaria and Judea), Golan, and the Holy Temple Mount, East Jerusalem according to Daniel 7:24-27 and Daniel 11:40-45 were, prior to 1967, parts of Syria, Jordan, and Egypt, three kings or countries subdued to make room for the intruder, the Little Horn. The Little Horn came up among the ten kings, Libya, Egypt, Saudi-Arabia, Iran, Turkey, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan, plucking up three inclusive of the Holy Mount. This was the Zionist State already there since 1948, but then, via military action in 1967, moving by force into Golan, Judea, Samaria, Gaza, Sinai Peninsula, and in particular the area of Old Jerusalem and the Holy Mount. This is the area Jews call the “Temple Mount.” All of these together are the smaller “glorious land” in the greater Holy Land of Abraham, between the rivers of Euphrates and the Nile.
From November 29, 1947 and their declaration of the Zionist State in May of 1948, they had moved on successfully, as we pointed out from Ezekiel 14:1-11, heralded by the Christian world in many quarters as being the Promised Return of the Israel of God in positive fulfillment of many Bible prophecies. They prospered in their takeover, without much trouble from the Arab inhabitants or from the world at large, concerning the Zionist victories in 1948 and again in 1967.
The Deception Begins to Fall Apart
In the Arab Intifada Uprising
This Is the Beginning of the “Judgment Shall Sit”
The Fifth Trumpet and Plague of Revelation 9 and 16
Well . . . What About
The First Four Trumpets and Plagues???
As the First and Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week affect the First and Last Half of Messiah’s Ministry, and what WAS and WAS NOT fulfilled in the First Ministry, and revelation of the Seven Seals, so also, it affects the Seven Trumpets and Seven Plagues. Basically, as far as TOTAL revelation, keying on the word “TOTAL,” the First Four Seals are all that was complete in the First Ministry’s giving of the Holy Spirit as we have stated earlier. So, we here state and will summarize the First Four Trumpets and Plagues quickly, equally associated with the First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week and Messiah’s First Ministry, so that we can move to the event we just introduced above in the Fifth Trumpet and Plague.
First Four Seals – Trumpets – Plagues
The First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week
First Ministry of Messiah
Last Three Seals – Trumpets – Plagues
The Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week
Second Ministry of Messiah
As one can certainly conclude, we are very clear that the First Four Seals, Trumpets, and Plagues are associated with the time of Messiah fulfilling one Half or the First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week. The opening of the First Four Seals was effectuated on the Day of Pentecost for the 120 in the upper room of Acts 1-2. The First Four Trumpets and Plagues are associated with the judgment in the Second Overturning of 70 CE, Ezekiel 21:24-27, which was the result of the rejection of that First Messiah Ministry to national Israel after the 40-year ministry of the Apostles, finishing that generation.
Remove Not, the Ancient Bible Landmarks . . . That Is . . .
Make Sure They Remain in Position for What They Are Properly to “Mark.”
must be very careful here not to fall into the trap of Preterism which attempted
to make 70 CE a finality when it cannot be. The THIRD
overturning of Ezekiel 21:24-27 must end in blessing under he whose right it is
to rule, and not obliteration of Jerusalem. 70 CE was
but the SECOND overturning and was not only chiefly a judgment against the
rejection of Christ after the 40-year ministry of the Apostles, but was surely
an answer to Apostle Paul’s anathema on the whole conjecture starting in Acts
15 that moved on to declare that the Day of Christ, blessing in the
Kingdom of God on earth, was at hand, II
Thessalonians 2, and the resurrection to enlightenment in its fullness had
happened already, II
Timothy 2:15-21. This blatant error was also judged and obliterated in 70 CE.
A Trumpet to the Believer Is a Plague to the Unbeliever
Removing Freewill and Self-Destiny in the Light
Of Sovereignty and TOTAL Control of God.
Profession versus Possession
will be short here, in that this should be clear by now to the reader. The
believer is NOT one in a profession that in any way still holds
self-determination and freewill, deciding one’s own destiny. That is an
unbeliever; no matter if they can quote the whole Bible and are the
greatest humanitarians in the world. They are dead to the proper foundation of truth
and have none of the Seals opened unto them. Herein marks those that serve God
and those that serve Him not. Yes . . . all serve God, as to fulfilling His
Will and Purpose, but that is understood only by the believer, who is one that IS
actively, in time and space within their lifetime, serving God intelligently under
precise understanding of God’s Sovereignty IN ALL THINGS.
The Trumpet and the Plague, Is a Fact
Perceived as a Positive or a Negative Respectively
As an example of this bold face title just rendered, let us consider Joshua and Israel’s conquest of Jericho. This is the FIRST introduction to Seven Trumpets as stated in the Law and the Prophets from the Book of Joshua, in Joshua 6. There, the final or Seventh Trumpet revealed the complete purpose of the other Six. There was no understanding until that Seventh one sounded. What occurred was a Trumpet of victory for the Israelites. Although there is no mention of the word “plague” in Joshua, we will use it here for the purpose of making our point for the Book of Revelation. The Trumpet of victory for Israel was received as a Plague of destruction for the people of Jericho with the exception of Rahab and those with her. She received deliverance from the Plague aspect destroying Jericho and was caught up in the positive side of that same event of the Seventh Trumpet. She is a type of the remnant Gentiles that were called out of heathenism to see the truth in Messiah and are joined with Israel as the company coming out of Great Tribulation when that Seventh Trumpet sounds in the spiritual sense here in the end time. She was marked out with a scarlet cord hanging in the window so that she would not be killed with the rest of the inhabitants of Jericho, indicative of those remnant believers with enough understanding under blood atonement in the end time, to quickly act in accordance awaiting the Seventh Trumpet. The others of Jericho had no understanding until it was too late, and the Seventh Trumpet of a positive nature to Israel and Rahab was the Seventh Plague of a negative nature to Jericho.
As It Was Then, So It Is at the End Time
All Is Understood Only in the 7th Trumpet.
The first Six Trumpets and Plagues of Revelation 8-9 and 16 are unrevealed and unknown as to their significance until the sounding of and the pouring out of the Seventh Trumpet and Plague respectively. This is stated plainly in
And the temple (This is the temple in heaven as is clear by other verses considered in Revelation) was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple (Entering the temple is to enter into the seat of understanding as to all God is doing or has done according to the Seven Seals, Seven Trumpets and Seven Plagues contingent upon Daniel’s 70th Week, the temple time period of Messiah’s presence, being confirmed and consummated by Messiah as to both the First Half and the Last Half), till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.
Part of that Sounding and Out Pouring is this publication making known the truth. The fullness arrives in THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL as the cornerstone of foundation and capstone that finishes it as well. This is understood in reading this publication Babylon Is Fallen after the presentation of THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, and then reading THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL again once one has finished this publication. This is the effect on each individual. The events that accompany that revelation and understanding, whereby every man will be delivered eventually, are seen in Jerusalem and the Holy Land as the removal of the Zionist State in the coming, public manifestation, appearing and recognition of proper government in Messiah, again according to Ezekiel 21:24-27 and Daniel 12:1-7, as well as a multitude of other scriptures.
Returning to 30 – 70 CE
The First Four Trumpets and Plagues, Revelation 8:7-12, as well as later Revelation 16:1-9 are associated with the First Ministry of Messiah and the end of the witness thereto in the destruction of 70 CE as we stated.
What is the “Third” or “Third of Men”???
With the exception of the Fifth Trumpet and the Seventh Trumpet, we have in 1-4 and 6 the expression the “third” or “third of men.” If we move to Revelation 12, we find this is the third of the stars of heaven that are cast to the ground by the tail of the Dragon. We saw already in our explanation of Daniel 8, that this was those who fell or were cast to the ground from their original position in heaven or understanding and allegiance to the Covenant of God with Israel, once accepting the league with a foreign power, thus polluting the sanctuary of their strength in rejecting Messiah under Old Rome.
practical numbers, this is also all that remains, prior to the time of Daniel, once
we remove the 10 Tribes, leaving part of Levi as Priests and Levites, among the
Tribes of Judah and Benjamin, which two tribes remained whole and intact, as
well as a small remnant from the other tribes, such as we see identified in Anna
in Luke 2:36-38 of the tribe of Asher. This group of basically Judah or
Jews was then called Israel from that point as about one-third of the original
Israel compared to the greater company previous to 721 BCE. Two-thirds are cut
off, without identity, spiritually dead and lost in the nations surrounding the
glorious land of Judea and Samaria, in the greater Holy Land taken over by
Assyria in 721 BCE as we see in
II Kings 17. Additionally, in Isaiah
19:24, we see remaining physical Israel of the two tribes of Judah and
Benjamin with their few Levites are also the “third” with Egypt and Assyria, or
the Arab peoples between the rivers Euphrates and Nile, which have intermarried
over the centuries with the lost 10 tribes, or the 2/3s of the original
physical Israel that were taken captive to the point of lost identity since 721
BCE, again according to II
Zechariah 13 shows 2/3s cut off when the remaining 1/3, this same third of Isaiah 19:24, and Revelation 8-9, is brought through the fire and purified. Some, those of Dispensationalism, have taught that this is 2/3s of the population exterminated at the time of the tribulation on Israel of the end time. This is erroneous, even as the so-called Seven Years of tribulation is erroneous as stated earlier in Chapter 10. We have gone on above here in Chapter 11, showing the tribulation or time of Jacob’s trouble is spiritual consternation due to their Zionist plan coming under world scrutiny in a 20-year period when Messiah is being personally blest with further revelation. Therefore, what Zechariah 13:8-9 is stating is just the simple fact that the end time purification is upon the remaining 1/3 or third, that which remains SINCE 721 BCE WHEN THE TWO THIRDS WERE THEN TAKEN IN THE ASSYRIAN CAPTIVITY, LOST AS TO IDENTITY, AND THEREFORE CUT OFF.
Trumpets Are Positive in Respect of Removing
Within the details of the First Four Trumpets and Plagues of Revelation 8 in comparison with Revelation 16, we observe they are again quite ghastly in description and both negative in appearance. However, the Trumpet aspect, although as negative as the Plague in description, is STILL a positive, in the view of the believer, in the respect of the REMOVAL of the deception and that which rejected Messiah in 70 CE. We know the party under the Fifth Seal crying out “how long” and wanting vengeance, they being Jews not receiving Messiah due to the blindness of Leviticus 26:16 and Romans 11:25-27, although a positive company in one respect, also saw 70 CE as a negative.
Short and to the point, only those in reception of the truth behind the First Four Seals saw the First Four Trumpets, in the REMOVAL of the Temple Mount and Jerusalem, as a positive. This was simply because they knew that it was the block to Israel receiving Messiah at that time and the power of deception used by the Scribes, Pharisees, and leadership of Israel. It fostered and maintained their hold over the people in league with Rome for continued prosperity, as we have analyzed earlier concerning the Herods and that league. The judgment came, even as Christ had warned them to flee when they “saw” the armies compass Jerusalem. The League with Rome, there since 63 BCE, standing against and rejecting Messiah in 30 CE, in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21, continued to deceive Israel for 40 years of the Apostles ministry. When that destruction and judgment came, it was, in the overall, big picture of removal of this abomination, to those with UNDERSTANDING, a positive. To all others, Jews under the Fifth Seal, and all those in league with Rome as well, it was a negative and the First Four Plagues.
Again the “Gap”
with Daniel between Daniel 11:35 and 36 there is an approximate 1917-year gap
of any action relative to Israel as a nation, from 70 CE, the First Four Trumpets and Plagues UNTIL fall 1987, the Fifth Trumpet and
Plague. This is the gap between the judgment against Messiah’s rejection in his
First Ministry and that generation, versus the judgment against Messiah’s
rejection in his Second Ministry in 20th to 21st Century generation.
We will now return to the verbatim use of the scripture with interpolated
comments and paragraphs as was our custom in the exposition of Daniel. We will
start with the First Four Trumpets and Plagues and move to the Fifth, so that
this gap is fully understood, as we did when we considered Daniel 11:35 on to
This gap and lack of action between the Two Ministries of Messiah affecting the sounding of the Trumpets and Plagues is precisely one reason Paul says his ministry was hidden or secret, Romans 16:25-27. It is within the Law and the Prophets but NOT bold and crystal clear, until marked by the cross, the symbol for the rejection of Messiah by the nation of Israel. Additionally, for that purpose, it is not to be considered in Daniel at all, nor Revelation after chapter Four. Both Ministries of Messiah must be seen, one following the other with no gap. This is the ONLY manner in which to understand Bible Prophecy and where Israel, and consequently the remainder of the world, are positioned in those timings and events called Bible Eschatology for the final analysis.
National Israel Did Not Enter at All.
They Saw No Fulfillment Whatsoever.
it is very important that we consider the prelude to the Trumpets sounding,
with regard to the Third of Men or strictly the physical people of Israel
understood to be Jews. We must compare what it says in the Law and the Prophets
and the atonement process of Leviticus 16, in particular isolating verses 12-13.
12 And he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from off the altar before the Lord, and his hands full of sweet incense beaten small, and bring it within the vail:
13 And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the Lord, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not:
We remember that we explained how the First Ministry of Messiah only fulfilled the entrance into the Holy of Holies by the Blood of the sacrifice, which in the heavenly fulfillment gave the believer access to God directly. Here, only a few entered fully as we see well made clear by Apostle Paul’s letters and in particularly the Book of Hebrews. Messiah did not fulfill the coming out of the Holy of Holies doing away with sin altogether which Paul says in Hebrews 9:28 would happen when he appears the second time. This left the believers that did not come the full distance with Christ and the Apostles INTO the heavenly Holy of Holies, outside under blood atonement covering their still sinful condition, until the appearing of Messiah the second time.
The point we will see here in this prelude to the Trumpets to Israel is that national Israel did not even get as far as the blood atonement, the initial atonement, offered under Messiah. In summary, they did not see him the First Time!!! Let us show this in comparison between Leviticus 16 and this prelude in Revelation 8.
2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.
5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
11 And Aaron shall bring the bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and shall make an atonement for himself, and for his house, and shall kill the bullock of the sin offering which is for himself:
12 And he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from off the altar before the Lord, and his hands full of sweet incense beaten small, and bring it within the vail:
13 And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the Lord, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not:
14 And he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it with his finger upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times.
we observe in this comparison that in the heavenly application of the
understanding of the fulfillment of the Law in Messiah, the way into the Holy of
Holies, although actually opened by Messiah fulfilling Daniel’s 70th
Week through the spring Holy Days, seen by the remnant identified in I
Corinthians 15:1-8, was NOT seen as open and available to national Israel. This is
determined according to the blindness of Leviticus
26:16, “consume the eyes,” extended from the Babylonian Captivity on
into and during the Times of the Gentiles which was well on since spring of 537
26:18-39. They, according to Romans
11:7; 25-27 could not come to deliverance
removing their sins until Messiah returned at the end or the “fullness of the
Gentiles” which is the same thing as the termination of “Times of the Gentiles”
used by Jesus in Luke
21:24. This inability, to enter or understand Messiah’s Ministry
and in particular even the First Ministry, is pictured as the censer full of prayers
of ALL saints, which included Jews holding to the Covenant of God with Israel,
but not understanding its fulfillment in Christ as Paul makes clear in Romans
9-11. Thus, the censer is cast to the ground in judgment and is NOT TAKEN, as
we see in Leviticus 16 it WAS TAKEN, into the Holy of Holies as part of the
A portion of the Jews DID receive Messiah and to them through the Apostles, all being Jewish, the First Ministry was given to the believing remnant awaiting Messiah such as Simeon and Anna in Luke 2, and must be joined to the Second Ministry for understanding of the full complement stated to be virgins and 144,000. They come from those receiving Messiah in his first ministry, joined by those marked out by Ezekiel 9 in the Second Ministry. The latter is due to not accepting the Zionist move; hence they are undefiled / virgins, and standing opposed to the abomination of an unrighteous league of Israel with Revived Rome / UN / USA, prior to the judgment falling since fall 1987, in Revelation 7 and later in Rev 14, as being with the Lamb. National Israel remained in blindness awaiting the end of the Times of the Gentiles, which was in spring of 1984 initiating the final 40-year generation process, that ushers in the Appearing of Messiah the Second Time doing away with their sin at last, Hebrews 9:28. Israel’s atonement is in the full removal of sin, not done under blood atonement entering into the Holy of Holies. This translates into the reality that Israel would NOT come to Jesus as the Messiah and receive atonement for sin, nor be left as sinners saved under this provisional covering as Christians so have been. RATHER, . . . Israel moves from their understanding under the Law directly into the removal of sin in the Scapegoat fulfillment, Lev 16:20-22, Heb 9:27-28, within THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL. This is the same for Christians now that the Age of Grace and blood atonement are finished in spring of 1984. They must also come to the total removal of sin within the higher revelation of THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL.
Emphasizing No Entry by Israel Nationally
Again, we emphasize as given in this metaphorical setting of Revelation 8:2-5 above, Israel nationally did not enter into the Ministry of Christ AT ALL and understood no entrance of Messiah into the Holy of Holies in heaven as stated by Paul. The atonement process was aborted for them as symbolized by the censer which WAS for entering into the Holy of Holies NOT being taken in but cast upon the earth in judgment.
Jew First and also the Greek,
Trumpets and Plagues Are unto Israel,
And Apply Only to Gentiles Secondarily.
As we saw in Ezekiel 14:1-11, the prophecy was unto the elders or leadership of Israel but included any strangers that sojourned among them. Following suit, the First and Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week 26-30 CE and then 1984-1987 CE respectively are solely unto Israel both in the world abroad and in the Zionist State, which “state” is not characterized in the Bible as “Israel.” It is the “Little Horn” that subdues three kings of Daniel 7:24-27, it is also under the “King of Fierce Countenance” of Daniel 8:23-25, it is the regime that dominates the Holy Land as the Willful King of Daniel of 11:36-45, and finally the “Beast Out of the Earth” of Revelation 13, and the chief manipulator operating in the power or authority of the Beast Out of the Sea, in the relationship of fornication as the “Great Harlot” of Ezekiel 23-24 and Revelation 17 and 18. It is never designated as “Israel,” in Daniel or Revelation when in unbelief and rejection of the Law and Prophets and Messiah. The Israel of God remains to be identified in the End Time reception of Messiah and establishment of THE EVERLASTING KINGDOM publicly in due time, whether or not they reside as Jews identified colloquially as such in the world at large, diaspora, or in the Zionist State prior to the time of full disclosure and public manifestation.
Degree of Affectation
The level at which the stranger or Gentile professors in the Promise and Covenant of God with Israel, indeed laid hold of that belief, determines the degree in which they are affected by what occurs to Israel, whether in acceptance and blessing or in rejection and judgment concerning Messiah, and the truth he brings. In other words, in taking the position that they have part through the First Ministry of Messiah, as given by the Apostle Paul, they also must receive all that Israel receives as a blessing or a curse. Being part of the Covenant, Gentile as Christians - the strangers of Ezekiel 14:1-11 sojourning with Israel - they partake of all this agreement entails per their commitment to that position.
Considering the First Four
Trumpets and Plagues Verbatim
6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
2 And the first went and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.
Understanding the First Trumpet / Plague
9, or consulting again the Law and the Prophets, in order to
properly place semiotics in the New Testament with a verified application of
authority (OT), we find that the “men of Israel” of Judges 9:55 are presented
as “trees” in the earlier verses of Judges 9:9-16, as God honored the curse of
Jotham upon those that had dealt treacherously with his father’s house and
family in slaying them. In Jeremiah
11:1-17, we have a prophecy to Judah and Jerusalem where in verse 16, it
says: “The Lord called thy name, a green olive tree, fair and of goodly fruit…”
37:6-8 shows the tribes of Israel as the brethren of Joseph bowing down
to him in a dream as their sheaves bowing down to his sheaf. In that the
sheaves were being bound together in the dream, it shows they were of the
spring harvest of wheat or some similar grain. These are spring, grass grains
or fruit of grasses, where the trees produce the fall and larger fruit. The
meaning here is twofold. First of all, the trees and grass, being “green” and
then burned up, is clearly 70 CE where the life and understanding they THOUGHT
they had is destroyed, along with their link to God as they understand it in
the destruction of the Temple, Holy Mount, and Jerusalem.
Moreover, from the spiritual side, the harvests of Leviticus 23, as seen in the spring grass, which produces grains such as wheat and barley, and the fall trees, which produce fruit, and mainly of the vine such as grapes, the associated fulfillment of these harvests in Messiah were never seen by Israel due to their rejection of Messiah. As with the men of Israel that understood Jotham’s curse and complaint, the removal of the one who deceived and killed unjustly, to the believer, was a Trumpet of victory.
As to the Plague aspect in Revelation 16:2, the destruction of 70 CE was purely on those that rejected Messiah and thus did not have the Holy Spirit and understanding thereby. They were marked in their forehead or hand, believing with their minds (forehead) or serving in their works (hand), in the primary instance by believing in self-determination, freewill, and choice which leads to secondarily supporting the Gentile, intrusive government under its appointed leaders out of Rome, such as the Herods, culminating in “we have no king but Caesar,” John 19:15. The Beast was Rome in rule over the Holy Land, the image unto the Beast was the Zionists in league with Rome to try and effectuate their concept of the Kingdom of God in the Holy Land, creating a deception to the Jews in dispersion and the world at large, diaspora, that they were the Israel of God in the prosperity experienced at that time, supposedly sanctioning Roman rule and that league with it, and that political government.
Again, in its inception, the Beast is Rome at this time of the First Ministry of Christ. The image is the Zionist idolatrous league with Rome revered in the world by their control of the Temple Mount and its rituals, falsely portraying to the world that it is the, sanctioned by God, Israel of God. The actual government under greater Romer, as to the rulership of the Temple was committed to the leaders of Israel who gave obeisance to Rome. This is clear in their fear of losing same as expressed in John 11:45-53, prophetically carried in Daniel 8:9-12; 11:20-35 showing that league and obeisance as we have given earlier. That loyalty to Rome and love of their position over the people concerning rulership of the Temple, and its rituals, led to Daniel 11:31, John 19:15, rejection of Messiah for allegiance to Caesar.
In 66 CE, it reached a breaking point under the ‘claims’ of Christianity joined with Judaism that the Day of Messiah / Christ was at hand, against which Paul warned in II Thessalonians 2, Rome turned upon it and crushed them in 70 CE. We iterate the concept of full, statehood government was not there as a separate nation in the First Ministry unto the Second Overturn of 70 CE. The destruction was a grievous and noisome sore. It was “noisome” in that it is heralded throughout history as the noted destruction of 70 CE and is revealed as the Second Overturn of Ezekiel 21:24-27.
8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
3 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.
Understanding the Second Trumpet / Plague
great mountain is the only great mountain to the Jewish people, that of the
Holy Temple Mount. Upon its destruction in 70 CE, the news was spread abroad in
the world of Jewry of this great loss. Keeping in mind Genesis
10:1-5 “isles of the Gentiles,” where “isles” or ‘islands’ are only so
by being in the sea surrounded by water. Thus, the term “the sea” is symbology
for the world or nations abroad, generally Gentile in nature, outside of the
River Euphrates and the Nile. So, we can perceive, in this Second Trumpet /
Plague, as stated in the Trumpet aspect, the Jews in “the sea” or the nations
abroad, in the dispersion or the diaspora that yearly came to Jerusalem and the
Holy Mount there for the Feast Days of the spring and fall, as seen in Acts
2:5-11, their link and life with God as they understood it, were now cut
off and slain by virtue of that link with God, as they understood same, being
destroyed or severed.
The successful commerce, indicative of the “ships,” generated by the Herods in the prosperous relationship into which Israel had been seduced by Rome, as we made clear earlier, also ceased. All of this died and was cut off due to the rejection of Messiah finalized in the great mountain or religiously significant Holy Mount and Temple in Jerusalem being consumed, “cast into the sea,” by Titus of Rome and made as just another part of the vast Roman Empire with no practical or usable religious significance any longer. All that was perceived by Israel in a link with God as life, the blood, those things surrounding the Law and its ceremonies and feast days became then death. To those heeding the Word of Christ to flee Jerusalem according to Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21, and Paul’s admonitions in II Thess 2, and certainly the Book of Hebrews, this was a Trumpet and positive in that they saw his word fulfilled, and the deception, which stood opposed to the truth they tried to declare in the nations in harmony with Apostle Paul, removed in judgment.
To those in the nations and the dispersed Jews who believed that the Kingdom of God / the Day of Christ was being established in Jerusalem, in the collective move joined by many Christians, against Paul’s warning in II Thessalonians 2, this was a Plague of destruction upon their concepts and beliefs, killing them spiritually as to this claim and their link with Jerusalem and the Holy Mount, thus slaying them spiritually in that destruction and separation, “and every living soul died in the sea.”
10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.
5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.
6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.
7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
Understanding the Third Trumpet / Plague
Wormwood is Messiah in rejection, abhorred by the leadership in Israel, making the relationship with Rome, their lifeline as they understood it according to John 11:45-53, bitter and turning it upon the Zionists destroying them by 70 CE. Also, this, like the trumpet and plague, positive and negative aspects respectively, the waters of life to the believer accepting Messiah were the same bitter waters to those rejecting him, exposing their league with Rome, and deception to the then known world, ending in 70 CE.
12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise
8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
Understanding the Fourth Trumpet / Plague
Genesis 37:9-11 again to bear, the sun, moon, and stars darkened is the
leadership and government of Israel removed literally in 70 CE in the Second
Overturning of Ezekiel
This is a trumpet of deliverance to the righteous in the removal of that which
persecuted the believers as we see in the Book of Acts and brought deception to
the world. This was so much so that many false apostles went out behind the
Apostle Paul as we see in II
Corinthians 11, where some pointed back to Jerusalem saying the Kingdom was at
hand pulling many simple Christians into the deception, against his warning in II
Thessalonians 2, and the Book of Hebrews.
As to the plague aspect to the unrighteous, the false government they created in their league with Rome, represented as THEIR sun or government to which they pledged allegiance in John 19:15 in rejection of Messiah, comes against them in reverse of the successful and prosperous way they had looked upon Israel, once Zionist Israel caused insurrection in the Holy Land. Rome, Israel’s false sun and government they esteemed instead of Messiah, then scorched them with the heat of destruction, bringing to desolation all the success Rome and the league with the Zionists of that day had previously together in the deception to the nations until that Second Overturning of 70 CE. Men blasphemed God because of the plague which was from God. This shows no understanding of why they were wrong, and it left the seeds among those Jews in their descendants to return in 1948 - 1967 CE with the same deception and league with Revived Rome / UN / USA in the end time, as prelude to the imminent Third Overturning.
The Clear Gap in the Trumpets
13 And I beheld and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabitants of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, WHICH ARE YET TO SOUND!
However, There Is No Clear Gap in the Plagues.
deception being removed in 70 CE, there is no relevant prophecy with respect to
Israel, positive or negative, until the deception returns in the Holy Land in
the same league with Revived Rome in 1948 CE as it had with the Old Roman
Empire from 63 BCE until 70 CE. However, the generation that had understanding,
those who saw all of this destruction and removal of 70 CE as a positive and in
that respect as a trumpet, passed physically from the world with the last one
of record being the Apostle John around 100 CE, soon after recording this
revelation of Jesus Christ given unto him.
As we have pointed out previously, those spiritually alive or those who had passed from death unto life in the First Resurrection were those who had the positive understanding. They, being now gone from the world as to their physical existence, left NO representation of the fullness of knowing the truth concealed behind the First Four Seals, or a positive view of events in 70 CE as in the First Four Trumpets; hence, we have the clear gap from the Fourth to the Fifth Trumpet. It is only in the end time under Messiah returned, as Michael the Great Prince, that such understanding is given again in a positive fulfillment of prophecy. Again, in the precedent of Seven Trumpets in the Book of Joshua, the trumpets were sounded under the presence of God’s anointed Joshua himself. So, it is again, the trumpets that ceased in 70 CE with 1-4, sound once again 5-7, beginning in 1987, only when God’s anointed is present again commanding or authorizing their sounding.
Until then there is NO GAP in the Plague / negative aspect, where men still blasphemed or rejected truth in their concept of self-determination, freewill, and deciding or choosing (or so they think) their own destiny. There is no understanding and only a false understanding from which they do not repent but continue to reject or blaspheme God with their Zionist, Machiavellian approach to the Covenant of God with Israel. They stayed in the nations waiting and manipulating by force and deceit, until we see their emergence beginning in the 1800’s unto its public manifestation in 1948 CE, bringing about an even more pronounced image to the beast. This is the Zionist State as its own entity or internationally recognized nation, yet still in dependence on Revived Rome, as a democracy in the same IMAGE of the democratic world pictured predominantly in its chief ally to this day, the USA, as we had in the Zionists and Rome of the Old Roman Empire league.
We must remember any false positive, as it would appear ‘positive’ according to Ezekiel 14:1-11, is a deception and meant to sour in the long run to bring Israel to repentance and to where they will never depart again from their relationship with God honoring His Sovereignty. Therefore, the resurgence to come into the land out of time via the wrong method, without Messiah, is but a continuation of rejection of truth and a negative, remaining only as a Plague, made more vivid in reality from fall of 1987, the intifada, Arab uprising and forward from there. This is the Fifth Trumpet and Plague which we will address in Chapter 12.
This is the end of this Chapter 11, where we have brought everything and all comments clearly up to the Sounding of the Fifth Trumpet and pouring out of the Fifth Plague just after Michael the Great Prince and the author left the Holy Land on December 3, 1987, the 1335th day of Daniel 12:12. We will go directly into the Fifth Trumpet and Plague in Chapter 12.
