The Last Countdown

In the last article, I showed how the devil has revealed his plan to sit on the unified worldwide throne that has been prepared for him, and how the symbolism of Quetzalcoatl, the ancient Mesoamerican bird-snake deity, reveals how he would appear: in the same way that he appeared in Eden—by using a medium. We saw that it points precisely to Pope Francis as the modern medium which Satan is using to disguise himself.

Some have questioned why we are studying crop circles and mythology. It is not the theme of our studies, of course, nor are we basing any new knowledge on these findings, but we are simply using them as additional evidence in support of a solid biblical claim. We should expect this, really. If we are talking about Noah’s flood, for example, would we cry “Sola Scriptura!” as soon as someone started sharing ideas from scientific sources that support the flood? Of course not! We recognize that if the things we speak about are true, there should be evidence of it from a variety of sources, not just the Christian ones, with which we are more comfortable. And if those scientific sources later prove to be invalid support, it does not change our beliefs, because they were not based on those extra-biblical sources. So in this case, our understanding is based on scriptural evidence, but extra-biblical supporting information corroborates it and should be expected if our understanding of Scripture is accurate.

Listen to the biblical narrative:

And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. (Revelation 12:7-8)

The theme runs throughout human history and experience—an unresolved conflict between good and evil. Novels, movies, and real-life experiences without number have given character to the story. Being innate in the experience of man, its origin predates him, following from an angelic controversy into which we became involved. The rebellion was already in place before Creation, as is evidenced by the serpent’s first recorded words:

Feathered SerpentFeathered SerpentFeathered Serpent

Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every [any] tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. (Genesis 3:1-5)

The serpent was already in rebellion against God from the beginning of the history of mankind. Should we not expect many extra-biblical stories relating to that rebellion? And shouldn’t we be able to discern and relate elements of truth in those stories without basing our understanding upon them? I think so.

The description of Quetzalcoatl as a feathered serpent catches our attention for the mention of such a creature in the Bible and its close connection with the arch deceiver, Satan—that old serpent who was in Eden and who is now very active in world affairs. When we recognized its connection with the winged-serpent crop circle in the light of our new understanding of the pope, the pieces of the puzzle began to come together. We already covered most of that in the last article, but in exploring a little more about Quetzalcoatl, there are some interesting parallels with the biblical serpent of Eden and his intent to deceive the whole world. But first, let’s be clear about who this talking serpent was, that was in rebellion against God. The Bible gives a clear answer:

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. (Revelation 12:9)

The Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

Satan seeks to deceive the whole world. Did you notice that to Eve he misrepresented God as possessing what was in reality his own character (lying and deceptiveness), while he claimed to be the one to have their best interest in mind (showing them how to exalt themselves)? By claiming God’s character as though it were his own and casting the ugly attributes of his own character upon God, he has deceived many into following him and turning against God and His ways. He follows this same principle today. He presents himself in a beautiful, attractive light, while throwing every dark shadow he can over the truths that lead one to God and those who follow them. And just as he appealed to the ego by suggesting that Eve would rise to a higher state of existence, so today he appeals to man’s ego and selfish desires. But Jesus, our Example, pursued a humble path of self-denial and sacrifice.

Crescent Moon with VenusSatan is a fallen angel whose name means “Adversary” or “Accuser,” but whose name before his rebellion was Lucifer (meaning the “Morning Star” or “Light-Bearer”). The name is a reference to the planet Venus, the morning (and evening) star, which is the brightest “star” in the night sky when it is visible. It is symbolic of his high position before his fall. Quetzalcoatl is also associated with Venus.

Lucifer is described with majestic and beautiful qualities far superior to any description of humanity. The little red devil with horns and a trident, fancied to be in charge of hell, is a fictitious image calculated to cause us to disassociate him with anything attractive, beautiful, and real. But a much different picture is given in the Bible. Represented by the king of Tyre, the prophet Ezekiel lamented his fall:

Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth;[1] and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. (Ezekiel 28:12-15)

As Jesus noted, calling Satan a liar and the father of lies,[2] he considers it in his best interest to cloak his true character and assume a holy identity—like that of Christ. Satan, the accuser, transforms himself into Lucifer, an angel of light, and leads many by this disguise to give heed to his disastrous ways. The wolf puts on the clothing of a sheep to appear harmless, when inwardly he is vicious. He presents ideas in a light that makes them seem appealing, but in the end, they lead to ruin, just like the seductress of Proverbs 7 who, like the serpent, was subtle of heart:

With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him. He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks; Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life. (Proverbs 7:21-23)

The Scriptures give us a true picture of this deceiver, and Satan’s inner desire is clearly stated:

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

Of course, his desire to be like the Most High is only superficial. He desires His throne and the worship that belongs to Him, but He does not desire His character, for that is contradictory to His selfish desires for exaltation.

Quetzalcoatl, the Devil

When the serpent suggested to Eve that they would attain to a higher level of existence (becoming “as gods”) as a result of disobedience to God’s restriction, he insinuated that God’s law was not in their best interest. He presented it as burdensome and limiting to their potential. In the story of Quetzalcoatl, we see the same sentiments expressed. Consider this account (I have added terms in brackets to associate it with the biblical narrative):

Legend has it that when the creation of the world was finished, the gods [angels] and humans lived in harmony, everyone was happy, except for the god Quetzalcoatl [Lucifer], who observed in anger as humans were subjugated by [required to be obedient to] the other gods [angels relating God’s law]. So he decided to adopt the human condition [flesh and blood—of the serpent] to share the knowledge [of good and evil] and art that the deities possessed.[3]

The Bible records examples of angels that were visible to people at that time,[4] as was God Himself,[5] so it is not out of harmony with Scripture to suggest that Adam and Eve may have had communion with the angels, but notice that Lucifer simply “observes.” He was restricted to the tree forbidden to Adam and Eve. From Lucifer’s perspective, obedience (though it be cheerful and willing) was a yoke of bondage (he continues to make the same insinuations today). He is also described as benevolent toward the race in his offer to share his knowledge—just as he presented the fruit to Eve, “to be desired to make one wise.”[6]

The accounts of Quetzalcoatl generally depict a conflict between him and another god, Tezcatlipoca, who is cast as a very dark and unpleasant figure. This is similar to the many mischaracterizations of God that have been promulgated throughout history. Satan has ever sought to demonize God and glorify himself. The doctrine of an eternally-burning hell, for example, presents God as an insatiable sadist, and many regard Him as angry, vindictive, and unapproachable. They are afraid of Him and pray to Jesus, whom they feel is “nicer” and is on their side. But of course, these views are not Scriptural, for Jesus taught that we should pray to the Father in Jesus’ name, and that the Father Himself loves us.[7] Even in the Old Testament, God was known for His longsuffering and tender mercies.[8]

Quetzalcoatl, Angel of Light

The descriptions of Quetzalcoatl often reveal very human characteristics, and this is surely in part because there was a man by that name who was also influential in the Mesoamerican culture. The two are not clearly distinguishable, and many stories blend them into one. In a similar manner, Satan also has a dual nature: a dark warrior on one hand, but an angel of light on the other. It is the yin and yang, the mixture of good and evil that proponents of the New Age ideology claim should be “in balance,” but which God forbade, providing instead a tree of life without the “balance” of death.

Quetzalcoatl is said to have brought a message of love. He forbade human sacrifices and taught the people about one Supreme God and many things of the arts, sciences, and social customs. Other attributes of Quetzalcoatl that bear similarity to Jesus are that Quetzalcoatl was considered the greatest Lord of all, he was considered a link between heaven and earth, he was associated with the bread of life (maize for the Mesoamericans), he is said to be the creator of life, his blood is said to have been given in order to bring life to the dead, there is a prophesy of his return, and he is said to have been a bearded man wearing long robes.

It is rather unique how similar the characteristics of this prophet [Quetzalcoatl] are in relation to the description we have of Jesus.[9]

What I find even more interesting, however, are those similarities that are related to the prophesied return. There is a revealing parallel that becomes apparent. I want to stress here, though, that whatever similarities may appear between Jesus Christ and Quetzalcoatl (who is the serpent of Eden, or Satan dressed as an angel of light) are simply imitations. The dualism encapsulated in the nature of Quetzalcoatl speaks to the deception of his appearance as a Jesus-like figure, when in reality, he has a dark nature that the Savior did not possess.

Imitating the Return

It is believed that Quetzalcoatl established the Toltec era on August the 16th, 1168 AD. Interestingly, most Mexican year accounts begin with that date. Both the Toltecs and Aztec calendars were based on 52 years and their span of time broken into thirteen eras.[10]

Beginning in 1168, the thirteen 52-year Toltec eras reach until 1844. Does this year bring anything to memory? It should, because this was the year when millions of Christians were expecting the return of Jesus, according to the timeline presented in Daniel 8:13-14. At the same time that people were anticipating the return of Jesus, the return of Quetzalcoatl was expected as well! Could it be a mere coincidence that the prophecy of Quetzalcoatl’s return pointed to the very year that the biblical prophecy pointed to? Notice also, the factors in the Toltec calendar. There were 13 eras and each era was 52 years (52 = 4 x 13). The symbolic numbers that appear in biblical prophecies relating to Jesus, on the other hand, are usually multiples of 7 or 12. The appearance of the number 13 (representing the devil and his rebellion) in Quetzalcoatl’s prophecy is indicative that this points to a counterfeit “Christ” figure.

But of course, Jesus did not come at that time—nor did Quetzalcoatl. Even in this failure to come, the devil imitated Jesus. Since the Great Disappointment, as it became known in the Christian world, there have been a few who have taken it upon themselves to make further predictions regarding Jesus’ return. But until now, these have failed, because God had not revealed the time and therefore it could not be known.

Just before Jesus was taken up to heaven, His disciples asked Him,

...Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. (Acts 1:6-7)

However, His very next words are quite telling:

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. (Acts 1:8)

Although it was not for them to know that which God had put in His own “power” (meaning privilege or authority), He would yet give them “power” (meaning force or ability). But what ability was He referring to? He did not specify, but knowingly left it ambiguous! This ambiguity allows for a dual fulfillment of the prophecy, for not only was the Holy Spirit poured out on the disciples, but the ultimate fulfillment was to be in the last days:

And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh:... The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: (Acts 2:17,20)

Although it was applied to the time of the disciples, it clearly points forward to the last days, just before the great day of the Lord comes. So, if we understand Jesus’ words to refer to the end-time outpouring of His Spirit (also known as the latter rain), it leads to a different meaning. After we receive the latter rain, we would receive the ability to know the time! The Father would reveal His secret.

Indeed, with the Orion message, the Holy Spirit began to be poured out, and after that, another study revealing the very day of Jesus’ return was given with the Father’s authority. Many reject the last message of merciful warning to the world because they do not believe that God will ever reveal His secrets. Despite Jesus’ promise, they do not believe that God would ever give them the ability to understand and share what He has kept in His own authority. This is addressed in more detail in The Power of the Father. Rather than welcoming the light of such a revelation, they choose the darkness that Paul spoke against, and would rather have Jesus come as a thief.

For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.... But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. (1 Thessalonians 5:2, 4)

Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard [the things that have not yet died], and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I [Jesus] will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. (Revelation 3:3)

Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. (Amos 3:7)

The study revealing the time of Jesus’ return was only made possible through a review of the history of the Seventh-day Adventist Church (which had its roots in the Great Disappointment of 1844), so it could not have been revealed before that history transpired. Only God knew the hour of Jesus’ return before He revealed it to man through that study, which was discovered in September, 2010 and published in the Shadow Series. Sadly, few of His chosen heard His voice in it, but the devil believed and immediately began to prepare for the final climax of the war. After receiving that knowledge, he developed a cunning imitation.

In our last article, The Return of Quetzalcoatl, we looked at a crop circle that pointed to the exact day that Quetzalcoatl would assume the throne, and we identified him as Pope Francis. However, the entire crop circle is an imitation of the timeline that God used to reveal the time of Jesus’ coming! Indeed, the crop circle imitation was “published” on July 29, 2011, less than a year after the original was revealed to us the September before, by which the devil was given the opportunity to know the true day of Christ’s return. Think about what that means—would Satan imitate and base his own plans on an erroneous study? We will explore some of his imitations in a little bit. But before we do that, we need to understand a bit more about...

God’s Timekeepers

The feasts of the Jews were given to them as a “shadow” or prophecy of things to come:

Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. (Colossians 2:16-17)

Paul said this after Christ had already fulfilled the law at the cross. Yet he speaks of things still to come that were prophesied in the things pertaining to the feasts: food and drink, holy convocations, new moons, and special feast Sabbaths. The substance of these rites was fulfilled in Christ, and His sacrifice did away with the need to continue their observance, but there remains a prophecy in them that teaches us of things to come. The study of these feasts and their pertinence to our day has been published in the Shadow Series on our website, which led to what we call The Vessel of Time or the High Sabbath List. This is the understanding that Ellen G. White said it was our privilege to have:

The significance of the Jewish economy is not yet fully comprehended. Truths vast and profound are shadowed forth in its rites and symbols. The gospel is the key that unlocks its mysteries. Through a knowledge of the plan of redemption, its truths are opened to the understanding. Far more than we do, it is our privilege to understand these wonderful themes. We are to comprehend the deep things of God. Angels desire to look into the truths that are revealed to the people who with contrite hearts are searching the word of God, and praying for greater lengths and breadths and depths and heights of the knowledge which He alone can give. {COL 133.1}

God knows the end from the beginning. He is the Master of time, and He has used the timekeepers of the sun and moon, in conjunction with the festal services that He instituted thousands of years ago to signal key events in the history of His remnant church, long before it ever came into existence. Both the timekeeping celestial bodies and the feasts in their seasons were designed and initiated by God, and their prophetic message must therefore bear the authority of their Creator.

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: (Genesis 1:14)

Only do not confuse divine signs with the astrological notion that the heavenly bodies have spiritual influence over people and the events on earth. Such beliefs open the door for demonic forces to bring about those claimed influences. They are the spirits and gods of myth, lore, and idolatrous religions. Even within Christianity, many fail to recognize how they open the doors to demonic influence. Many a Christian Facebook group is littered with posts inviting users to comment “Amen” to get a special blessing. It is equivalent to astrology to believe that commenting to a post can bring about the influence in your lives that is spoken of, yet hundreds of people routinely post their “Amen” subscriptions to these “Christian horoscopes,” hoping that just maybe it will help them!

The devil does not have knowledge of the end from the beginning. He is highly intelligent and has great depth of understanding, but he is limited by his lack of knowledge of the future. Therefore, he seeks to make up for this by making his own predictions and bringing them to pass through his willing servants, deceiving them in the process. But signs that God designed into the sun and moon at their creation have run their course, and He has decided to reveal their message in these last days.

The Cross Embodied in Time

Overlaid upon the celestial time-fabric of months and years is a special timekeeper that arises from the combination of the heavenly timekeepers with the earthly seasons and the feasts that God instituted according to the time of harvest. What makes this timekeeper special is that it encapsulates the character of Christ and His plan to deliver the world from sin.

Sitting as King of the Universe, the humility of our God could not be fully appreciated. But when He, on behalf of sinful humanity, became the Son of Man to bring the divine nature within man’s reach, the angels and unfallen worlds began to see just how selfless He was. His perfect law, holy and just and good,[11] which was broken by man, He fulfilled perfectly, and the life, which was required of the law-breakers, was willingly offered by our Savior, who was the source of life.

The humility of Almighty God is seen in His willingness to submit Himself, not just to humanity in the strength and nobility of Adam, but to 4000 years of degradation; not just to torture and death, but to eternal loss! At the cross, Jesus confirmed His commitment to retain His humanity forever! It was an inconceivable sacrifice for Him, who had been one with the Almighty, that His humanity was rendered permanent with His human life and death. He did all this while we were immersed in sin, in order that we might have the opportunity to receive His perfect life. It is the gospel story of divine love, which has transformed countless lives.

He who was one with God has linked Himself with the children of men by ties that are never to be broken. Jesus is “not ashamed to call them brethren” (Hebrews 2:11); He is our Sacrifice, our Advocate, our Brother, bearing our human form before the Father’s throne, and through eternal ages one with the race He has redeemed—the Son of man. And all this that man might be uplifted from the ruin and degradation of sin that he might reflect the love of God and share the joy of holiness. {SC 14.3}

What love is here demonstrated, that while we were yet ungodly and ungrateful sinners, He was willing to make such a selfless sacrifice for us! This gospel was demonstrated in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. His death on Good Friday sealed His commitment to humanity, and His rising on Resurrection Sunday made it possible to give redemption to fallen man by His Spirit. Yet we generally skip over that special day in between: The High Sabbath of His rest.[12] When a Jewish ceremonial Sabbath (which could be on any day of the week) landed on a weekly Sabbath, it was called a High Sabbath, and it was just such a High Sabbath when Jesus rested in the tomb.

Jesus gave His life because it was necessary in order to satisfy the broken requirements of the law. Were the law changeable, such a sacrifice would not have been necessary, for He would simply have changed the law, acknowledging that it was imperfect as it was written and that it was not appropriate or could not be kept by His creation. But of Himself, God declared, “I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.”[13] His law is a reflection of His character, which is merciful and longsuffering, yet not lax toward guilt.[14]

Jesus’ body lay in the tomb as a testimony to His unchanging character, which led Him to yield even His eternal life rather than relax the requirement of the law—and this testimony is encapsulated in the High Sabbath rest. Just as the significance of the weekly Sabbath was instilled by God’s example at Creation, when He rested and was refreshed, so the significance of the High Sabbath was instilled by Christ’s example at the cross, when the Creator of life freely gave His life. It represents the reasons for which He gave His life—the unchanging nature of the law, and His selfless love, which led Him to put the interests of others even above His own eternal life!

The Revelation of Jesus Christ

It is the purpose of God that by receiving Christ, His people reflect His character. Both the Old and the New Testaments clearly state this:

But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. (Jeremiah 31:33)

And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: (Ephesians 4:11-13)

The same selfless love of Jesus that compelled Him to lay down His life, He commands us to demonstrate as well:

This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. (John 15:12-14)

The love of God in us—the willingness to surrender our own eternal lives for our friends—in combination with His unchanging law written in our hearts, is what is represented by the High Sabbath, and is what makes us “High Sabbath Adventists”. And this is what God desires of His people in this last generation. If we have the faith to believe His precious promises, this is not too much to ask.

Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. (2 Peter 1:4)

It follows, then, that if we study the High Sabbaths in relation to God’s Judgment-Hour people, we should learn something about how God would develop that character in them. This people are those who discerned the beginning of the Judgment Hour in the Great Disappointment of 1844; who later organized into the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Only with a sound understanding of God’s calendar would this be possible. Thankfully, He had already revealed this, so it was possible to create a list of High Sabbaths for all the years of the history of the Adventist Church.[15]

The results were astounding, when interpreted in the light of Ellen G. White’s observation that we could have been in heaven by 1890, had the 4th Angel’s Message been received in 1888. Taking the pattern of High Sabbaths from those three years (1888 – 1890) to represent the return of Christ (when we will be taken to heaven), the only time that same pattern showed up again was in 2013 – 2015, in perfect harmony with the Orion study, which indicates 2014/2015 as the last year of character development.[16]

For Every Truth There is a Counterfeit

The High Sabbath ListThe True Gene of Life: The High Sabbath List (HSL) depicted as a DNA sequence


The Quetzalcoatl Crop CircleThe Counterfeit: The Quetzalcoatl crop circle

There are many characteristic details of the High Sabbath List that are imitated in the crop circle serpent. Let me present some of these in tabular form:

The High Sabbath List...The Quetzalcoatl Crop Circle...
Began with the 1841 - 1843 triplet, wherein was a little disappointment that represented the Great Disappointment to come the following year.Began on an anniversary date (Dec. 21, 2010) representing the “disappointment” of Dec. 21, 2012 that was to follow.
Is “double-stranded” on account of the Spring and Autumn feasts upon which it is based. The Spring feasts began with the full-moon feast of Passover, while the Autumn feasts began with the new-moon Feast of Trumpets.Is “double-stranded” with new moons forming one strand and full moons forming the other.
Is based on agriculturally related feasts.Is literally formed from an agricultural crop.
Has eight triplets of years (8 x 3 = 24) after the beginning triplet until the end.Has 24 pairs of moons (months) shown after the beginning (where the moons are invisible) until the end.
Has one additional year (the year of plagues) that remains outside of the character-development period before Christ returns in His power.Has one additional pair of moons that is outside the period leading to the ascension to the throne, and points to the coming of the trident power.
Represents the culmination of the Great Advent Awakening.Represents the supposed evolutionary spiritual awakening to a New Age of enlightenment.
Has coded triplets that are reminiscent of the DNA codons that encode for the building blocks used by cells to synthesize proteins.
Illustration of DNA base pairs and codons
Represents a coming age of triple-helix “DNA activation” (for New Agers, at least).
Fictitious triple-helix DNA concept
Represents the character development needed for God’s people.Represents the rising of the Kundalini coiled serpent to the enlightenment of the mind (which is the seat of the character).
Reveals both good choices and bad choices made by the church.Reveals the co-existence of good and bad through a yin-yang symbol.
Ends with the return of Christ.Ends with the return of Quetzalcoatl.

The Final Demonstration

With these evidences, I hope it is clear that the return of Quetzalcoatl is none other than the devil asserting his dominion over the entire earth. In the crop circle, the earth is always depicted inside the boundary of the serpent, representing that assertion. In Eden, the devil came as a winged serpent and successfully usurped Adam’s dominion and gained authority over the two inhabitants of earth. At the cross, Jesus gained the victory over the devil, and regained the dominion that Adam had lost. Now, once again, the same devil has come as Pope Francis to usurp Christ’s dominion over the earth.

The same principles that were demonstrated at the cross of Calvary are to be repeated now in these last moments of earth’s history. The conflict between good and evil is coming to a conclusion. This time, however, it takes place within the visible realm—in the flesh of man. At the cross, Satan was still cloaked from the view of man, so we could not discern his part in the drama against Christ. But this is not the case today! Satan has taken a body, so we can see him. And the Holy Spirit—Christ’s representative on earth—is also being poured out in the body of His people—all those who have prepared their hearts to receive Him.

The revealing of Satan and his artful deceptions is progressive; at the cross, when Jesus won the victory, Satan was cast out of heaven to the ground. It was then that the inhabitants of heaven saw him plainly for who he was, and there was no place found for him or his angels in their sympathies anymore.[17] The next phase of the revealing process is taking place now, just before the return of Christ. Now is the time when we have opportunity to clearly discern his character and turn to Christ our Savior with repentance. These steps of the process are identified by Ezekiel:

Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground [at the cross], I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee [now]. (Ezekiel 28:17)

God declared that this rebellious angel would be set before kings who would behold him, or discern his character. The kings here referred to, are that chosen generation, as I described in Signs of the End, who would serve as a jury to judge between the two parties and give their verdict. We give God a favorable verdict by walking according to His marvelous light, demonstrating that we desire light rather than darkness, thereby showing the praises of the Lord in our lives.

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: (1 Peter 2:9)

You are called to be among that chosen generation. Are you able to discern the character of rebellion, even when it is cloaked by piety and humility? The case has not yet been decided, but at present, it appears very bleak. Satan has been reigning over the earth for two years already, and most of us have been deceived, and are unwitting partners in the rebellion! It is high time we heeded God’s word to come out of Babylon! This includes every organization that is subject to the devil in the form of Pope Francis, either openly or behind the scenes as a guest (observer)[18] of his terrible majesty. In order to fulfill our function as jury members, it is necessary to thoroughly understand the case and evaluate the evidence. Our lives are the expression of whether we prefer God’s government or Satan’s, and this constitutes our vote.

And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth... These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God. (Revelation 14:3-5)

O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth. Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day. Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people. (Psalms 96:1-3)

The call goes out to all the earth: “Sing unto the Lord a new song!” The music to God’s ears is the showing forth of His salvation from sin every day. To stand before the throne of God without fault, being redeemed as firstfruits from the earth, is a wonder from God and His glory and is to be declared among all people!

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, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. (Jude 24-25)

Give unto the LORD, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength. Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come into his courts. O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth. (Psalms 96:7-9)

Many fail to see that God is in a weakened, vulnerable condition on account of sin. If we refuse to worship Him in the beauty of holiness; to choose by faith to “walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit,”[19] then His glory cannot be proclaimed in all the earth! The proclamation is dependent on having people willing to give it! Do you understand how we can proclaim “salvation to our God”?[20] Do you understand what the “greater works” were that Jesus spoke of?

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. (John 14:12)

If Jesus had finished all the work that was to be done, He would neither have said this, nor would it be necessary for Him to wait 2000 years. But He made His need known in asking whether He would find faith:

And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? (Luke 18:7-8)

God is more than willing to act on our behalf, but just as Jesus was unable to do miracles for those who did not have faith to believe, He will be equally unable to avenge His elect today if He does not find faith in them. But the war between the devil and God can only be decided in God’s favor if His people demonstrate that faith!

So indeed, God is in a vulnerable position, dependent on His people having faith in Him to give Him the glory due unto His name. Meanwhile, Satan is seeking to undermine their faith and dupe the whole world into following him. God has set His timekeepers in motion in the heavens, and they are all pointing to this very time in history! Will you keep time with them and give Him strength and glory by offering yourself “a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God”? And will you do it before the clock points to the designated time when it will become too late to demonstrate faith? “Now faith is... the evidence of things not seen.[21] If you take the attitude of waiting to believe until every doubt is expelled; until every fulfilment is seen—you will deny Jesus of your usefulness to Him, because that is not the attitude of faith. Jesus does not ask for blind faith—He gives ample evidence—but He does ask for faith! Consider the evidence, and choose now to be among those of whom it is said,

Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. (Revelation 14:12)

Is there any single man on this planet more powerful than Pope Francis? Find out how the pope won the admiration of the world by impersonating Jesus Christ, and by imitating His glorious return! (Yes, you read that right!) You will also find out the rest of the story about how his living predecessor prepared the way for him, as we analyze the coats of arms of both living popes once more. Taking the chair of St. Peter was just the first step in Satan’s efforts to usurp even the very throne of God Almighty!

Satan’s “Triumphal” Entry

Far from the chubby little baby with wings, as they are generally portrayed, a cherub is a wise and awe-inspiring being nearest of the creation to God. Their closeness to God is illustrated in the description of the ark—the pattern of the throne—with its covering cherubim, where God met with Israel: Exodus 25:18-22. 
John 8:44 
From The Legend of Quetzalcoatl – by Chela Orozco 
For example, consider the cherubim with flaming swords placed as guards of the gate to Eden. – Genesis 3:24 
See for example, Genesis 2:22, 3:8 
Genesis 3:6 
John 16:23,27 
See Psalm 119:156 and Isaiah 30:18, for example.

This period is also indicated by virtue of the fact that the earthly sanctuary services should reflect the heavenly sanctuary, which the Orion Message connects with the same general period of Adventist history. 
Note that in Orion, the years begin in autumn, so when we say 2014/2015, we speak of the year beginning in autumn of 2014 until autumn of 2015.
