The Last Countdown

A Polarized WorldThe Bible speaks of a point in time after which nobody will change sides anymore. Those who have chosen the paths of righteousness will continue on the Way,[1] and those who have chosen the paths of wickedness will never again repent. This entire world has become polarized by the strong forces that are acting on our society. Every individual has been compelled to align himself one way or the other, and the forces have become so strong that it is no longer possible to re-orient oneself.

He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. (Revelation 22:11)

Everyone has developed an affinity—either to the ways of God, or to the ways of the world. As iron filings in the presence of a magnetic field, every individual on the face of the earth has been oriented by an unseen global force.

When did we reach the point of no return? What is the force that has exerted an influence strong enough to bring every person to the decision point? What fate awaits the inhabitants of the earth—each on their respective side of the question?

Good Image Bad ImageTraditional marriage between one man and one woman was instituted by God in the Garden of Eden before the entrance of sin into the world. It was blessed by God, and it was purposely made to reflect His image.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. (Genesis 1:26)

Thus, the marriage institution has the foundational principle of God’s government—love and trust, demonstrated by submission—and the world was intended to thrive under it, as the universe thrives in the affection of God’s love.

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. (Genesis 1:27)

The institution of marriage, which is the foundation of earthly dominion or governance, involves by definition one man and one woman, both reflecting God as their example.

Sodomy, on the other hand, contains in it the corrupt principle of a different government that has as its maxims “Do what thou wilt” and “If it feels good, do it.” It is a government comprised of equal voices, which undermines the principle of trust and submission and gives rise to chaos and confusion. It is a government which is opposed to God, though it masquerades as love so-called.

The Mark of the Beast and the Seal of God

The issue of homosexuality has polarized the world, but the lines are not drawn simply between gay and straight. For example, there are many, many straights who embody the same satanic maxims that enable homosexuality. Sexual freedom and licentiousness in general follow the same lines. Let’s also be clear that any individual who availed himself of Christ’s power to overcome the animal passions—whether of a homosexual or heterosexual nature—is not condemned. The line is drawn between those who have submitted to God and overcome sin through the rich provisions of His love, versus those who have proudly deified (worshipped) their passions (as in the Gay Pride movement). They publicly declare their animalistic character, openly confessing the Mark of the Beast.

By contrast, the Seal of God is upon the selfless ones who do not perpetuate self-gratification, but rather honor their maker by upholding and defending the principles of His government, not only in their own lives (married or not), but in public governance as well. A person does not ever have to marry to have the seal of God—but he has to support and uphold and respect the Edenic institution of marriage as the true and godly foundation of all government. In other words, he has to honor his parents—which are naturally male and female.

An ancient royal seal of the king of Judah

And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. (Genesis 1:28)

God blessed the marriage institution by impressing it with His seal, which means that the marriage institution, as a foundation for society, carries the authority of God. An official seal includes the name, office and territory—all of which are involved in the marriage institution as we can extract from the verses quoted above.

From the Creation account, we know that God (His name) is the maker (His office) of the heavens and the earth (His territory). God impressed the elements of His seal upon the marriage institution, for God (His name) is the maker (His office) who made man—male and female—in the image of God, and gave them dominion (territory). In essence, through the marriage institution, God set man over the rest of creation to exercise dominion over the world under His authority, as an extension of His own universal reign.

The image of God and the seal of God are the great originals, for which the image of the beast and the mark of the beast are the counterfeits. Paul explains the transformation from the original pattern of godliness to the ungodly counterfeit in the first chapter of his letter to the Romans:

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. (Romans 1:20-32)

Paul speaks of a change from the image of the Godhead (marriage in the image of God) to images of animals—or in other words, the image of the beast—and he describes it as sodomy in all its filthy aspects, which is the epitome of all sin. It is pure animalistic behavior in the sense of “if it feels good, do it.” It is appropriate to call it the image of the animal (image of the beast), but in fact sodomy is worse than what any animal can do, because an animal has no conscience, power of reason, or overarching restraint.

Stimulus-ResponseGod created man different from all other creatures in the animal kingdom. Stimulus is always followed by a predictable conditioned response in animals, but man alone has the ability to make a choice between stimulus and response. Animals are conditioned (or trained), but man alone can choose. Those who have accepted sodomy have reduced themselves to the level of brute beasts, thus they have the mark of the beast—either in their hand representing their behavior, or in their foreheads representing their animalistic philosophy of life.

Just before God destroyed the antediluvians, He caused the animals themselves to testify against the wickedness of the people by going into the ark in male-female pairs, according to the divine order.

And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female. (Genesis 6:19)

Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female. Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth. (Genesis 7:2-3)

There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah. (Genesis 7:9)

And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the Lord shut him in. (Genesis 7:16)

Milestones on the Road to Perdition

Granting homosexuals the right to marry was the first phase of the attack on God’s law in the United States, where the nation put the mark of the beast into effect, but still left the possibility open for individuals to remain faithful to God by speaking against it and not participating in it. The U.S. entered that phase on June 26, 2015. Many people have already been suffering as a result, for refusing to service homosexuals, but that is only the first phase.

The next phase is the limitation of free speech. That is coming as I write this—and it is coming so quickly that I question how long we will be able to publish articles like this one. It is happening everywhere around the world, but what is happening in Europe and the U.S. is especially making the news. In Europe, people are being held up to public ridicule, losing their jobs, being deprived of their assets, and generally losing everything—all for speaking a word! Public comments are no longer allowed by some press organizations. The tolerance and anti-discrimination laws mean that you cannot speak freely (negatively) about public figures, corporations, governments, or people groups because it is considered “hate speech” against them.[2] In the U.S., you can already browse a public “hate map” showing some surprising organizations that are considered to be hate groups by the influential Southern Poverty Law Center, which feeds the recently-created domestic terrorism council, which is aimed at curbing free speech in an effort to prevent the formation of terrorists.[3] One point worth pondering is: why are these kinds of measures being pressed so urgently, if they are aimed at preventing the rise of a future generation of terrorists? Is a day, or month, or year, going to make a difference—or is there an ulterior motive supplying the urgency?

Tolerance laws will be the cause of a great darkness, and will prevent the “buying and selling” (spreading) of the truth, as it is written in the Word of God.

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:16-17)

The merchandising of Babylon is a prominent theme that occupies almost the whole 18th chapter of the book of Revelation. Merchandising, commerce and trade—buying and selling—can be understood symbolically as the trading or exchange of doctrines, teachings, and philosophies. Babylon offers its myriads of false teachings, each one tailored to appeal to the sinful desires of a particular crowd. Free speech allows the truth to be shared and exchanged—bought and sold—as Jesus counseled the church of Laodicea to do.[4] When free speech is restricted, it is very difficult to exchange the truth with others.

The big issue today is LGBT tolerance. Tolerance laws protect those who are in harmony with the New World Order, but they deny protection for anyone who is “intolerant.” That means if you speak anything that is considered hate speech, then you are automatically the guilty party and have no protection under the law. That means all worldly support is being removed from those who remain faithful to God. It means that if you do not endorse sodomy, if you do not receive the image of the beast, then you are not permitted to trade your words on the free-speech market.

Worst of all, the death decree, or death sentence, will eventually come for those who still refuse to accept (tolerate) LGBT marriage. The framework has already been in place in the United States for some time, being that terrorists are no longer counted as having rights—and can be detained, tortured, and killed without due process. Now that hate speech is categorized as the cause of terrorism, and since the tolerance laws are tolerant of all but the intolerant, the death sentence without the right to a trial is lacking little more than implementation. The Bible mentions the death sentence in the third plague:

And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. 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. For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy. And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments. (Revelation 16:4-7)

The death sentence for intolerance will affect all of the faithful, causing them to cry out to God day and night for deliverance.[5] The bigger the city that a person lives in, the worse these things will be.

The national sodomy law of the U.S. went global on September 25, 2015, when all 193 nations on this planet signed the new 17 Sustainable Development Goals at the United Nations summit. Among those 17 goals are women’s equality and anti-discrimination—both of which are the primary enablers of LGBT rights. The entire world signed onto the UN goals! And it did not take much time for UN representatives to knock on the doors of yet-to-be-compliant nations, urging them toward implementation, with fiscal consequences to be imposed for non-compliance. It happened on October 6 in Paraguay—less than two weeks after the nations signed the new goals![6] Rapid changes are afoot everywhere.

A Brief Sketch of Lucifer, Past and Present

The acceptance or tolerance of homosexuality is a frontal attack on the due authority of God established for this world at Creation as an extension of God’s throne. If you will, Adam was coregent of Earth with God. When Adam fell, this world fell with him into a state of rebellion against God, and Satan (formerly Lucifer) became the world’s new de facto leader, because Adam had obeyed him over God.

Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? (Romans 6:16)

Satan usurped God’s authority over Adam by tempting Adam to sin, and as such Satan became the representative of planet Earth in the courts of heaven.[7] That representation endured until Jesus Christ overcame Satan through the cross.

Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. (John 12:31)

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

Jesus’ victory on the cross redeemed the world from Satan’s representation. From that time forward, Jesus has been not only the sinner’s personal Advocate, but also the corporate representative of our planet in the courts of heaven.

Although Satan can no longer represent the entire planet, however, he still holds sway over sinners who reject the gift of Jesus Christ and remain obedient to him. He does not have authority over the world as a whole, but he has control of the majority of the people. Through human agents, Satan still seeks to accomplish his ultimate goal of usurping God’s throne in heaven.

How can he hope to do it? Simple—he and his angels control the people to accomplish his purposes for him. We can see it very clearly right now through current news headlines like the following one (dated October 11, 2015): Canadians hoping to travel to Mars welcome news of water on planet. Through human instrumentalities, Satan is endeavoring to expand his government to other worlds! His agenda from the beginning has been to usurp not only the dominion of Adam, but the throne of God Himself. That is why the space capsule that is being constructed to carry astronauts to Mars is called ORION. Satan’s ultimate goal is to spread his rebellion all the way to the throne of God in Orion, and his method is to use human instrumentalities to do it.

Satan’s government does away with the husband-wife hierarchy in traditional marriage (the image of God) by replacing it with two equivalent and generic LGBTQxyz persons with equal authority. That represents his intention to rise to equal power with God Himself. He wants to compete equally with God, as yin and yang, forever.

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)

It gives the endless saga of Star Wars a whole new depth of gnostic meaning, where the perfect square of 144,000 faithful are depicted as the always-orderly rows of storm-troopers dressed in white. Good guys represent the rebellion of Satan and his angels, and the orderly government of God is depicted as extremely harsh and evil to the core. The “force”—spiritism—permeates its doctrine. As a person sits emotionally captivated in the theater seat, he is being conditioned to root for the enemy of God without even knowing it. That is how entertainment has corrupted countless souls, while they enjoyed the process.

Thus, the struggle between LGBT rights vs. traditional marriage is in fact the struggle between Satan’s governance vs. God’s. The Bible tells us how to identify the human agents whom Satan is using to accomplish his agenda. It says that the “world” is opposed to God. It is speaking here of worldliness—the ideologies and philosophies that Satan has been selling to the world ever since the Fall.

...know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. (James 4:4)

The ways of God are exemplified by love, which is expressed in His law. That is why the Ten Commandments include the command to honor “thy father and thy mother” (defining the home as consisting of heterosexual parents) and to not commit adultery—which is a breach of the marriage institution, and a betrayal of the principle of love.

United Nations General Assembly Building

Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord. (Psalm 119:1)

By contrast, Satan has been working tirelessly to change the ways and laws of the world according to his design. When we look at the world today, we can identify Satan’s influence very easily. We need not look any further than the UN summit on September 25, 2015, where all the nations of the world agreed to the new UN development goals. That means the UN is now in the role of facilitating Satan’s one-world government—and Satan himself presides over it through the human agency of Pope Francis, whose monumental address to the UN was given that same day in the highly symbolic Tower of Babel (expand the image to see the symbolism explained). Pope Francis is the human embodiment of Satan himself, masquerading as an angel of light.[8]

Satan has achieved such a victory over the souls of the human race that he has become the leader of world through Pope Francis. Now do you understand why the death penalty will be attached to hate speech, and why these changes are being urged so quickly upon the national governments of the world? The polarization is so strong that there is no middle ground any more. Everyone has been influenced toward one side or the other.

Crossing the Rubicon

Julius Caesar, a Roman statesman who “is considered by many historians to be one of the greatest military commanders in history,”[9] no doubt offers a good illustration of what Satan is trying to accomplish through Pope Francis. “He played a critical role in the events that led to the demise of the Roman Republic and the rise of the Roman Empire.” That parallels the role Satan wants to play in the “reform” of God’s government, which he intends to accomplish by replacing it with his own.

Satan is acting against his Creator. Like Julius Caesar, he is engaging in a very difficult battle, and he knows it.

We know from [Caesar’s journals] that Caesar is not taking this lightly. He knows that if he marches on Rome with his armies, then he is a public enemy, and that he will either have to win, or die. For a Roman patrician like Julius Caesar there is no life without military service; there is no life without service to the state. He cannot simply ‘go native’ and stay in Gaul, and he does realise that if he goes back to Rome, he would be killed. At this time the northernmost border of the Roman territory in Italy is the River Rubicon. Once someone crosses the River Rubicon, he’s in Roman territory. A general must not cross that boundary with his army – he must do what the Romans call lay down his command, which means surrender his right to order troops, and certainly not be carrying weapons. Caesar and his armies hesitate quite a while at this river while Caesar decides what to do, and Caesar tells us that he informs his soldiers that it’s a little tiny bridge across the river, but once they cross it they’ll have to fight their way all the way to Rome, and Caesar is well aware that he’s risking not just his own life, but those of his loyal soldiers, and he might not win. Pompey is a formidable enemy. It’s also impossible to avoid the fact that Caesar was attacking the state, and as a patrician Roman this would have been very difficult for him, equivalent to beating up your father. He wouldn’t have done any of this lightly. Finally he makes a decision, it’s time to go, and he uses a gambling metaphor: he says ‘Roll the dice’, ‘Alea jacta est’. Once the dice start rolling they cannot be controlled, even though we don’t know what it is as the dice roll and tumble. Julius and his men swiftly cross the river and they march double time toward Rome, where they almost beat the messengers sent to inform the Senate of their arrival.

—Titchener, To Rule Mankind and Make the World Obey

Can you imagine how immoral a person would have to be to “beat up their own father!?” And yet this man is revered as a great man! Pope Francis is no different. After having already subdued the entire world outside of Roman Catholicism, he marched home to Rome to conquer his own Church in the three-week synod. His goal since the beginning of his papacy has been to reform the Church, ultimately to break down the marriage institution by trivializing divorce and welcoming homosexuality.

The whole drama was acted out in the Seventh-day Adventist Church in advance, so there is no guesswork involved as to what is happening in the Catholic Church. It has all been rehearsed and practiced. Step 1, marriage is compromised. Step 2, homosexuality is defended (tolerated). It’s that simple, whether we are talking about churches or politics.

The Seventh-day Adventist Church demonstrated the Hegelian dialectic with classic clarity. The thesis was women’s ordination. The antithesis (or opposition) was determined to have no change. After fierce battles between the two sides threatened to divide the church, the synthesis was presented and voted on July 8, 2015 saying effectively this: “Obey the leadership, even if it contradicts Bible and conscience.” Thus the corporate Adventist Church crossed the line and declared war against God. To be clear, they chose to beat up their Father.

That was just the practice run for what has now happened in the Catholic Church. For Catholics, the thesis was communion for unorthodox marriages, among other things. The antithesis was again no change. After fierce battles between the two sides threatened to divide the church, the synthesis came directly from the lips of the Supreme Pontiff himself. On October 17, 2015, he addressed the synod on its 50th anniversary with words “particularly significant not only for the internal life of the Catholic Church...but also for her relations with the other Christian churches and communities—beginning with the Orthodox Church, and her witness in the world.[10] In other words, he offered his solution of synthesis to all denominations, saying in essence, “Obey me as the great shepherd, even if it goes against God and conscience. I have the last word.”

Crossing the RubiconThus Pope Francis crossed the Rubicon, declaring war against God on behalf of the entire political and religious world. Alea jacta est—the die has been cast. As the furious pace of his march against God reaches every person along the way, the cultivated tendencies of each individual will determine how the dice will roll for them. Preparation time is over for humanity, and the armies of Satan and the messengers of God are racing toward the conflict in double time.

Are you enlisted in the war? Which side have you prepared yourself to join, as the battle cry rings through your town today? Although we are using the metaphors of war, we are not advocating violence in any way. The battle is a spiritual one. It is not violence to teach that homosexual conduct is an abomination, and that sexual perversion brings plagues. It is not violence to speak one’s conviction or to kindly refuse to bake a cake! This is a battle between right and wrong and has nothing to do with physical aggression. The metaphor of war is appropriate because of the eternal consequences that are at stake.

Another famous worldly general put the dire situation we face in very succinct and somber words:

If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.

―Winston S. Churchill

That can be read from either perspective, for either side of the battle. Think about it, and know how far the enemy will go. We have ample hope of victory, if only the soldiers would rise to duty! But will that always be the case? This is your last call to duty, and it is just that—a call to duty, not a call to life guarantees! Love is a matter of principle. Take your stand for God, and for God’s government as reflected in the image of husband-wife marriage. With no violence or malice, speak against homosexual tolerance! And do not tolerate or practice homosexuality yourself, lest you receive the plagues!

The First Plague

The first plague is a punishment specifically on those who have the mark of the beast or worship his image.

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

Note that the sore (or ulcer, or boil) falls upon a certain class of people. In other words, it is discriminatory. That means the plague cannot be something that affects the whole world without discrimination; it affects only certain people.

It is poetic justice that when the world (led by Satan) is pushing anti-discrimination laws that require tolerance of all people groups, God comes along with the first plague and says He definitely will discriminate based on a certain people group. The world says to tolerate everyone without discrimination, especially certain protected groups like LGBT groups, but God says He will not tolerate, but will pour out His wrath upon exactly that group! Those who have the mark of the beast are those who practice homosexuality, and those who worship his image are those who support and defend homosexuality (in other words, those who are morally loose even if they are still heterosexual). It is about sin: the soul who sins shall die.[11]

The selectivity of the first plague already eliminates several possibilities as to what it could be. For example, it cannot be a great earthquake, because an earthquake kills everyone in its reach without discrimination. It cannot be an asteroid impact, meteor shower, or nuclear war, because all of those would affect all people groups equally. It has to be something that is connected to the mark and image of the beast. It has to be something that is connected to homosexuality and sexual promiscuity, and understanding that allows us to connect the dots...

Is there anyone who has not heard of AIDS/HIV, and who does not know its cause?

HIV infection is caused by the human immunodeficiency virus. You can get HIV from contact with infected blood, semen, or vaginal fluids. Most people get the virus by having unprotected sex with someone who has HIV. Another common way of getting it is by sharing drug needles with someone who is infected with HIV. The virus can also be passed from a mother to her baby during pregnancy, birth, or breast-feeding.[12]

AIDS (or HIV) is a disease that is a consequence of lifestyle. The fact that most people who get the virus get it via sex from someone else who has it shows that the AIDS virus punishes sexual promiscuity, point-blank. It is a judgment or plague which discriminates against an immoral people group. It’s that simple! Nature and the Word of God take a direct shot at the immorality couched within the tolerance and anti-discrimination laws that the world is pushing.

But that’s not all. The Bible also gives a description of the symptoms of the plague, which matches the most distinctive AIDS symptoms.

Common AIDS symptoms in men include:[13]

⦁ swollen lymph glands.
unusual lesions on the tongue; skin rashes and bumps.
⦁ nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
⦁ cough and shortness of breath.
⦁ chronic fatigue.
⦁ fever, chills, and night sweats.
⦁ rapid weight loss.
⦁ blurred or distorted vision.

In the first plague, the “noisome and grievous sores” are an apt description of the skin rashes and bumps that are associated with AIDS/HIV infection. However, the Bible goes into even further detail of the disease in the fifth plague. The fifth plague is also associated directly with the seat (or authority) of the beast, which is his counterfeit to marriage in the form of homosexuality and sexual promiscuity.

And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds. (Revelation 16:10-11)

The “unusual lesions on the tongue” are described as being painful, along with the repeated mention of the sores which were mentioned in the first plague.

It seems abundantly clear that these two plagues are talking about AIDS/HIV, which is the discriminatory plague that only affects people groups that are sexually licentious—in other words, those who either practice sodomy themselves, or are so free with sex that they support the animalistic maxim of “if it feels good, do it” and thus they support the homosexual movement (and Satan’s authority) indirectly. Sin gives Satan power! He sits on the seat of sin!

Remember, we are talking about sin as the real disease with eternal consequences—not the loss of health in this life due to AIDS, which resulted from poor choices of the past. If you are a person who is already infected by HIV but have repented and reformed your life in time, then thank God that you found salvation for the life to come! Just “Go,” in the power of Jesus’ word, “and sin no more.”[14] For those who “pride” themselves in their sin, mark well...

Mercy Lingers No More

One thing that can now be deduced from the first plague is that it will rise continuously, and not happen suddenly. Viruses can spread quickly, but a whole population won’t drop dead overnight from AIDS. That begs the question: what does it mean that our countdown to the plagues expired at the end of the specific date of October 24, 2015, pointing to the beginning of the plagues (the first plague) on October 25? There were no masses of people dropping dead—as our critics were all too eager to “inform” us. Why then did God give a specific date for the beginning of the plagues?

Pope Francis sure didn’t miss an opportunity to contradict our warning of the plagues. On that very day, he said “Today Is a Time of Mercy!”[15] When the plagues began, Satan flatly contradicted it. He will continue to contradict it for the entire duration of the plagues, too.

The fact is, God could have poured out His judgments upon this world as far back as three and a half years ago, if it had not been for those who were still praying, still wrestling. Mercy lingered a long time for sinners to repent of their bad character, but now the preparation is over and the final exam has begun.

The strongest hurricane in recorded historyGod gave an attention-getting sign as the time of plagues approached. Hurricane Patricia was “among the most rapidly intensifying tropical cyclones ever witnessed anywhere in the world since the advent of modern meteorology.”[16] Heralded as the strongest storm in world history, it was a fitting warning of the impending plagues, not to mention that it was on course to make landfall on the very eve of the plagues, apparently making a beeline for Guadalajara, “one of the gayest spots in Latin America.”[17] It was nothing short of a prompt act of God against a nation quick to adopt same-sex marriage laws.

The hurricane threatened a fierce death toll as its 200 mph (320 kph) winds were expected to rip through Mexico on short notice, and tens of thousands were evacuated in anticipation of widespread destruction. And then, as soon as the Day of Atonement High Sabbath arrived on Friday evening, the hurricane spontaneously burst into just rain. “Patricia weakened even faster than it strengthened,” and by the time the plagues began on October 25, what was left of hurricane Patricia was nothing more than “a remnant low.” What can it mean? Any statistician should tell you that it is highly improbable that the strongest storm of all time would coincide with a single date that we’ve been counting down to for several years as the beginning of the plagues.

It was nothing short of a miracle that the storm passed without a significant number of mortalities or amount of damage. In the Bible, winds represent strife and war, which God held back from breaking loose on the first day of the plagues. It was always prophesied that way.

And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. (Revelation 7:1-3)

The fierce winds of Patricia threatened to tear the land to shreds, but they did not! Very little damage was reported compared to what was expected. The winds of destruction were held back, and the Bible tells us why in the above verse. Before the world can suffer harm, the sealing must be done.

That does not mean there is grace in the time of plagues, however. Think of it like a final exam in school. The time of plagues is the time of your final exam. Your preparation for the exam must have been done ahead of time. The time of grace was the preparation time, when you could have still changed your thinking before the exam. That time is over, and as of October 25, 2015 the world is seated in the exam room, and the door has been closed. At this point, even if the examiner has not administered your individual test yet, you still cannot change. You cannot go outside of the exam room to your study resources any more.

There is no more grace. No storm in weather-recording history has ever strengthened as fast as this one. It was near unbelievable—but after breaking the all-time record and grabbing the attention of the world, the storm gave an even greater surprise: “Patricia weakened even faster than it strengthened.” Those who prayed for Mexico thought their prayers were answered, but they have misunderstood what the storm means. Rain from Patricia was not held back.

Like the rain that came after Noah had waited in the ark for seven days, Patricia was full of rain as a sign that the real thing—the plagues—would begin after the seven days from October 18-24. It was not a sign to rejoice, or a sign of grace—and certainly not a sign for the latter rain. The latter rain is over, and the ark door is shut. Now we are in a time like the flood rains, which is not a rain that symbolizes grace or mercy, but a time when God must execute judgment. That is exemplified by the rains of Patricia, as “Rainfall was heavy enough to cause flooding and mudslides, including a slide in the state of Michoacán that took a section of roadway out with it, injuring two people whose vehicle fell into the slide.” When Patricia burst into rain, the God of Heaven burst into tears for the yet impenitent.

From one account, we learn additional details that are very interesting in light of the symbolism of Bible prophecy:

“The wind began around five in the afternoon,” she said. “The velocity of the air began to increase, and with it you could begin to feel the havoc it brought on. Trees started to fall one by one. It went on that way until 10 p.m.—the winds were strong. We sat in a small corner of the house—we all sat the same way in our houses—caved in.[18]

First of all, note that it began just before the Sabbath which begins at sunset, just like the storm we experienced a few years ago. In our storm, a large tree was symbolically uprooted, but with Patricia many trees “started to fall one by one.” Trees represent individual people,[19] and an uprooted tree is no longer a living tree. It has been judged and found wanting, and rooted out without mercy! In fact, one report indicated that the only two deaths from Patricia were caused by falling trees.[20] Clearly, the message is that the plagues begin with a process of individual judgment, “one by one.”

So, contrary to the idea that God was merciful, the heavy rain and uprooted trees from Patricia confirmed that the plagues did begin, but it tells us something about the time of plagues that we had not yet understood.

Think about it. If the gamma-ray burst from the Betelgeuse supernova had lit the globe on fire on the first day of plagues, how could the Holy Spirit administer the final exam? Specifically, how would God know who should die and who should live, if the final exam had not been completed yet? First, the student must take the exam. Then, the exam must be graded and given a PASS or FAIL mark. Then the consequences can finally come.

From that understanding alone, we can deduce that the gamma-ray burst probably won’t happen until at least the seventh plague, or at the actual coming of Jesus. Supernovae are both destructive as well as creative, and with the interstellar distances involved it is even difficult to say if the supernova will affect the earth before the millennium or after the millennium. Our best idea at this point is that the initial gamma-ray burst could occur before the millennium, while other slower effects of the supernova could reach earth after the millennium for the final destruction of the wicked. It’s hard to say for sure at this point, but we should not let such details discourage us from having faith in God’s leading. He will guide us into all truth, as He promised.[21]

From a distance, we so often see prophecies as monolithic. We think events all happen at once, only to realize that they are separated by time. We think events are sudden, when they are gradual. We think grouped events all have the same properties.

The case in point is the first plague itself (covered earlier). We already saw that the first plague fits AIDS/HIV symptoms, which would spread over time and not instantaneously on the first day. It is also logical that since the plagues are cumulative, as indicated by the mention of the sores of the first plague in the text of the fifth plague, then they must get worse and worse over time, which means that they cannot start with full force on the first day of the first plague.

Still, the Bible gives another evidence that the first plague has to do with uprooting trees, one by one:

And, behold, six men came from the way of the higher gate, which lieth toward the north, and every man a slaughter weapon in his hand; and one man among them was clothed with linen, with a writer’s inkhorn by his side: and they went in, and stood beside the brasen altar. And the glory of the God of Israel was gone up from the cherub, whereupon he was, to the threshold of the house. And he called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer’s inkhorn by his side; And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house. And he said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go ye forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city. (Ezekiel 9:2-7)

Plague angels with slaughter weaponsWe have understood for a long time that the six angels with slaughter weapons of Ezekiel 9 correspond to the six stations around the Clock of God. That was the solution to the mystery of Ezekiel, which explains how the six angels of Ezekiel correspond to the seven angels of Revelation. Since the clock makes a full circle, the first angel of Ezekiel (corresponding to the star Saiph) is also the last angel. He has two parts to act, once at the beginning of the cycle, and once at the end.

Formerly, we applied that understanding to the Trumpet Cycle of the clock and the dates for the seven trumpets of Revelation. However, since the destructive judgments of the trumpets were held back in mercy by Jesus pleading for His people with His precious blood, that means the prophecy of Ezekiel 9 did not have its complete fulfillment in the trumpet cycle. Yes, the marking of the man with the writer’s inkhorn began, but the slaughtering could not start because the command was given to hold back. Mercy lingered still, till the trumpet cycle had ended.

Furthermore, the text itself confirms that the slaughter must correspond to a time without mercy, by using absolutely merciless language. It must correspond to the time of the plagues when God’s wrath is poured out without mixture. The angels with slaughter weapons are commanded “let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity.” That means they will have no mercy! They are commanded to “slay utterly,” without regard to age or gender. That is merciless, and thus corresponds very well to the time of the plagues.

The only differentiation that the slaughter angels are permitted to make is between those who were sealed (marked) by the man with the writer’s inkhorn, and those who were not. Comparing the slaughter of Ezekiel 9 with the plagues of Revelation, we see the contrast between the seal of God and the mark of the beast. The first angel marks the foreheads to seal God’s people, whereas the first plague is poured out upon those who have the mark of the beast or his image.

The gradual nature of the first plague—in terms of the spreading of HIV/AIDS—is complementary to the work of the angel with the writer’s inkhorn. Both represent a marking process. We must remember that the true marks are invisible, and that prophecy has symbolic meaning. Although the HIV/AIDS-induced disease is a genuine visible mark, it symbolizes something deeper. It symbolizes contamination with sin, as leprosy did in Bible times. The true mark is the blot of sin upon the character, which is not always visible. God sees through the exterior into the heart, and that works both ways. On the one hand, He can see through a rough exterior to a pure heart that has been washed in the blood of Jesus, and on the other hand, He can see through a white-washed exterior to the unregenerate and self-sufficient heart within.

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? (Jeremiah 17:9)

Thus the marking process of the first plague includes a certain kind of invisibility. Going back to the final exam analogy, even though every student’s outcome will be based on preparation which is already over, the results cannot be known until the test is actually administered and graded. Each one must face his test.

The natural question is, what test began on October 25, 2015, and for whom? The answer is clear: every follower of our movement is tested, because the gamma-ray burst or any other calamity did not happen on that date. That was the big High Sabbath that we’ve been warning about and counting down to for years, and everyone who knew about it is now faced with their exam. Do you still believe that this ministry is led by God? Or were the anti-time-setters right all along? Is your faith contingent upon sight, or do you love Jesus in Orion just for who He is? Ultimately the test is a test of love.

Last year, we had the unfortunate duty of informing you that one person left our team. We did not disclose the whole story at that time, but another detail has become relevant now. There was another person who was going to leave with him at the same time last year, but he apparently repented and was given grace accordingly. However, on October 26, exactly a year later to the day, he confessed that he lost faith in this message, and thus left our team. He departed the next day, this October 27, on the birthday of Jesus.

You can imagine that we have all gone through a lot together as a team, and have grown to love each other. We are more than a team; we are a family, and it hurts terribly to lose a loved one. When we said it is no longer possible to change sides, he apparently changed sides. Thus he betrayed the message, and even Jesus/Alnitak Himself who is at its center. The fact is, he actually did not change. His repentance one year ago was answered with grace, but in the end he showed that he still did not overcome. He still made his faith dependent upon sight (which is no faith at all) and he placed himself above the group by making up his mind on his own.

Ultimately, the great test is a test of love, and here in the first plague we can see that the test began at His sanctuary and was about love (faith) to Jesus and His leading despite what is seen or not seen. A legalist does good works, but does not have love. God showed that love is above the letter of the law by giving His Son to die for transgressors! We have had so much evidence—so many tokens of God’s love—in the past year to confirm this message! To reject it because “what you said did not exactly come to pass” shows pure legalism and no love.

Now the team in Paraguay consists of exactly seven people.[22]

By contrast, our brother in faith who left last year has stayed faithful to the message, and is currently counted among our followers in good standing. It reminds us of the story of the butler and baker on the good Pharaoh’s birthday. The 144,000 will be the highest officers in God’s kingdom like the butler, but the others are like the baker, who was hung on a tree and the birds ate his flesh.[23]

No, there is no more mercy. If you fail this final exam, there is no more blood to cover you in the sanctuary above. You will either pass the test, or be uprooted like the trees under hurricane Patricia. Have you received your entrance exam for service in God’s army? Have you passed it? Has the angel with the writer’s inkhorn put God’s mark upon you yet?

Peals of Loudest Thunder

The seven last plagues come in seven cascading phases. The first phase began at the house of God, and it will continue until the marking angel has finished marking the entire Seventh-day Adventist denomination. Then—when everyone in that class has been tested and their grade has been recorded—the destruction of that class can begin in the next phase, while the marking continues to the next class. The process repeats until the entire world has been tested and marked, and the destruction has eliminated all but the 144,000 who remain to see Jesus come.

The following table provides an initial look at how the voice of God will cascade from Paraguay to the rest of the world. Next in line is the rest of the Seventh-day Adventist denomination. Have you wondered at how suddenly Ben Carson has risen to prominence in the U.S. presidential race?[24] God is putting Ben Carson in the spotlight to raise awareness about Seventh-day Adventism in the public mind, just in time to test Protestants in the second plague. One of the well-known facts about Seventh-day Adventists is that they live about 10 years longer on average because of their teachings on health,[25] central to which is a vegetarian diet. Exactly that teaching is coming to the attention of the world right now, as it has now been confirmed by the World Health Organization (WHO) that meat eating is linked to cancer.[26] It is as if the world is already being primed for the exam that will test them in regards to Adventism.

PlaguePeriodActivity of the Destroying AngelsThe TestActivity of the Marking Angel
1 – 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.
(Rev. 16:2)
Oct. 25, 2015 – Dec. 1, 2015 Waiting. As fellow Adventists, do you still have love for Orion followers, even though nothing visibly big happened on Oct. 25, 2015, or do you denounce it as erroneous time-setting? Marking begins at the house of God in Paraguay and continues across the entire Seventh-day Adventist denomination.
2 – 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.
(Rev. 16:3)
Dec. 2-5, 2015 – Mar. 8, 2016 Destruction begins with the Seventh-day Adventist denomination, where the 144,000 who stand on the sea of glass should have come from, for all who did not pass the test of the 1st plague. As fellow Protestants, do you still have love for Seventh-day Adventists who survive the destruction, or do you condemn them as cultists for keeping the seventh-day Sabbath? Marking continues with the other Protestant denominations.
3 – And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. . . .
(Rev. 16:4)
Mar. 9, 2016 – Apr. 21, 2016 Destruction continues with Protestant denominations, who should have finished the Reformation of doctrinal waters, for all who did not pass the test of the 2nd plague. As fellow Christians, do you still have love for Protestants who survive the destruction, or do you condemn them as heretics for not joining the ecumenical movement? Marking continues with Catholic and Orthodox churches.
4 – And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. . . .
(Rev. 16:8)
Apr. 22, 2016 – May 17, 2016 Destruction continues with Catholic and Orthodox churches, where sun worship entered Christianity, for all who did not pass the test of the 3rd plague. As fellow religious people, do you still have love for Catholics who survive the destruction, or do you reject the whole of Christianity as too exclusive? Marking continues with other world religions.
5 – And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, . . .
(Rev. 16:10)
May 18-21, 2016 – Jul. 31, 2016 Destruction continues with all of the religions of the New World Order, upon those who did not pass the test of the 4th plague. As atheists and irreligious worldlings, do you still have love for religious folks who survive God’s wrath, or do you denounce all religion as bad? Marking continues with atheists and the irreligious.
6 – And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs. . .
(Rev. 16:12)
Aug. 1, 2016 – Sep. 24, 2016 Destruction continues with the atheists and irreligious people of the world, represented by the three frogs of atheistic France, upon those who did not pass the test of the 5th plague.    
7 – And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. . . .
(Rev. 16:17)
Sep. 25, 2016 – Oct. 24, 2016     Marking is complete.
[He]...reported the matter, saying, I have done as thou hast commanded me.
(Ezek. 9:11)

The above table is just an initial look. Prophecy has many aspects of interpretation and depths of meaning. We said nothing of the four beasts (corresponding to the four outer stars of Orion, and thus the first, third, fourth, and sixth and seventh plagues) nor of any number of other aspects of the plagues. Yet even from this initial look it is clear that, like the mighty thundering cataracts of Iguazu Falls, the executive judgment of God will cascade through the entire world, leaving no class untouched.

And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. (Revelation 19:6)

And thus the gospel goes into all the world, not to convert now, but to convict!

And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. (Matthew 24:12-14)

The witness unto all nations is no longer for conversion. Many courageous people have stood up for Christ and have given their testimony by being martyred, by ISIS for example, especially in recent months—and it happens much more frequently than it gets reported. People will continue to die for their faith during the plagues, but their death will not be a martyr’s death—at least not in the regular sense of the word, because their blood will not convert another soul. Instead, their blood will be for a testimony, as the gospel goes to the whole world.

A Preview of the Second Plague

If the first plague corresponds to the man with the writer’s inkhorn, then the second plague must correspond to one of the other men with slaughter weapons who follows after him. That is confirmed in the second plague by the first mention of mass death in the plagues:

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

That is when it will become visible that mercy really ended and faith will be replaced by sight, at least for a certain group of Christians who have been the house of God. The Plague Cycle of the Orion Clock sets the date of the second plague to December 2-5, 2015. The range of four days is given by the throne lines of the clock, which is an indication that God Himself gives the command to unleash the destructive forces which are symbolized by the angels with slaughter weapons, as it says in Ezekiel 9.

God offers us additional information to pinpoint what the second plague is talking about, which will visibly confirm the prior close of mercy for humanity. It is a special blessing which God promised to those whose faith endures.

And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. (Daniel 12:11-12)

The 1335 Days, delayed (click to enlarge)We have an official interpretation of the 1335 days which places the beginning at February 27, 2012 and the end at October 17, 2015, the end of the Trumpet Cycle and the close of probation (see chart). We uphold that interpretation as it stands, but we also recognize that God is able to offer a “Plan B” in surprising ways. It often seems as if He is able to pull time out of thin air, but when we study more, we find that it was written in His Word all along. God’s plans are masterfully orchestrated to accommodate every need, without ever destroying the harmony of truth in His word!

The case in point is the 1335 days. A new look at the verses of Daniel quoted above offers an alternative interpretation. The blessing of the 1335 days stands in the context of the 1290 days, with no other beginning point specified. That means the 1335 days could be interpreted as beginning at the same time as the 1290 days, and that would mean that the special blessing is reserved for those whose patient, waiting faith reaches and touches (signifying Hebrew inclusive counting) 1335 days.

Back to our chart, you can see that the 1290 days began on April 6, 2012—which was a very special Passover that followed the same days of the week as it was in the year of Christ’s death on the cross. Our small group came together from different countries to observe the Lord’s Supper together in person for the first time on the eve of that Passover, recognizing that the final events of earth’s history were beginning. Our experiences are documented in our book, but the point right now is only that the 1290 days had that very special beginning. Many people around the world sensed the significance of those days, and indeed the world might have been thrown into sudden destruction had there not been groups like ours earnestly pleading with God in remembrance of His Son on that day.

If April 6, 2012 was Day #1, then how long do we have to wait in faith for the blessing of Daniel 12:12? Day #1335—the last day of waiting—comes to December 1, 2015, and that means the slaughter comes exactly on the first day of the second plague, on December 2, 2015.

There is a possible simple interpretation of the second plague—it is the Day of the Demon that we wrote about, except delayed to the next related holiday of Islamic Arba’een.

Arba’een...is a Shia Muslim religious observance that occurs forty days after the Day of Ashura. It commemorates the martyrdom of Husayn ibn Ali, the grandson of Muhammad...[27]

The holiday of Arba’een is directly related to the Day of Ashura, and it falls this year on Wednesday, December 2, 2015,[28] the first day of the second plague! Thus God pinpoints the beginning of the slaughter through the special blessing that is reserved for those who keep the faith until that day. From December 2 onward, it will not take faith anymore to see that God’s mercy has run finally out.

Notice that it is exactly 40 days later. Beginning with the landfall of hurricane Patricia, these are the 40 days of Noah’s rain, after seven days in the ark.

After the initiation of the second plague, the Hebrew Feast of Lights, or Hanukkah will come. That signifies the victory of faith for God’s people, which will finally be confirmed beyond doubt. That is the blessing in it, but it also implies a curse on those who will still refuse to believe in the face of such great evidence. Pope Francis has mobilized his forces for his greatest roundup of souls to begin on the opening day of Hanukkah.

On December 8, 2015, the “Holy” Door of St. Peter’s Basilica will swing open for the pope’s Jubilee Year of Divine Mercy. Satan is prepared to welcome with open arms of mercy all of the poor souls who decide to repent when they see that the end has come. When God’s mercy ends, Satan’s lie comes again: “Yea, hath God said” mercy has ended?[29] “Ye shall not surely die!”[30]

Will you make the right choice in the time of test, or will you wait until the only remaining option is to entrust your life to the arch-rebel, or else fight with no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves? Hurricane Patricia brought little devastation, but it brought plenty of rain to symbolize the tears of God because there is no turning back now from what He must do from the second plague on. Have you seen His tears, as He prepares to perform His strange act[31] of wrath?

Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel? (Ezekiel 33:11)

Sadly, the time of preparation has passed and your final exam is upon you behind the closed door.

November 22, 2016: Opening of the «White Cloud Farm»

home whitecloudfarm

The End and the Beginning

The last second of the Last Countdown ended on October 24, 2016, without Jesus coming back as expected. It was apparently what our enemies wanted, but for reasons that are more than they bargained for. Their supposed victory turned into a devastating defeat for them. Instead of closing our ministry like the critics wanted, our mission work is flourishing with new freshness and with great strength given personally by God the Father.

Two new websites are emerging (the White Cloud Farm and the official High Sabbath Adventist Movement website), and all of the sites, including the forum of the 144,000, are now hosted on “cloud” servers, referring to the cloud that we would have liked to meet each other in, as High Sabbath Adventists, if Jesus had already returned.

He wanted to come too, and was actually on His way to Earth until with the help of the last seven rations of the Holy Spirit, we realized during the Feast of Tabernacles (October 17-23, 2016) that a great sacrifice was needed for a complete defeat of the enemies of God in the battle of Armageddon. We were not to stand before God almost emptyhanded, with just a few—the first fruits of our movement. We realized that there was still a large group that could be found if—and only if—there were more TIME.

That is why during the Feast of Tabernacles, with one voice all of the members of the movement decided to ask God the Father, like Joshua, to stay the Sun of Righteousness for a heavenly hour, thus delaying the return of Jesus for the according earthly years. That sacrifice to postpone our rapture prior to the time of divine judgment upon humanity made us indeed the first of the “church of Philadelphia,” or of brotherly love.

Jesus, when He was about to come again and already saw the world in front of Him, found what He had pleaded for: faith... the faith of Jesus... faith that is willing to suffer for others and to be a friend to the enemies. He found the patience of the saints.

God the Father had revealed the time to us—the day and hour of the coming of His Son—but we declined that gift because it would have been selfish of us to go alone and leave virtually all others behind. Now we are no longer time-setters, but together with Jesus we determine when it will be time for Him to come. Only God the Father knows at the moment when that will be.

The four first articles of this new study site, which is for the seven years of Ezekiel 39:9, are about that sacrifice. Brother Ray writes about why it is right to ask God the Father for time, and tells the story of a revelation of the character of God. I, John Scotram, have the honor of delivering a message from God, bringing to light awfully solemn things. Brother Robert, who has been bearing the heat of the jungles of Paraguay for years with me, will tell what happened before and during the Feast of Tabernacles here on the upper, dried-up corn fields where we pitched our tents. And last but not least, my faithful companion Gerhard will explain what exactly needs to be done in the remaining time which God the Father has granted.

May the Holy Spirit be poured out upon the just, like in the beginning. That is our wish for you.

Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil. (Joel 2:23-24)

Church information and administrative needs will be handled through our church website: www.highsabbathadventists.org (in development)
New studies are shared on our new study website: www.whitecloudfarm.org

December 27, 2015: Coming up: New four-part series “The End of the World”!

The Winepress of GodGod has given much additional light that confirms that we are indeed already in the time of the plagues, although humanity is lured into a false sense of security, because they interpret biblical texts incorrectly and too literally. This fulfills prophecy:

When the irrevocable decision of the sanctuary has been pronounced, and the destiny of the world has been forever fixed, the inhabitants of the earth will know it not. The forms of religion will be continued by a people from whom the Spirit of God has been finally withdrawn, and the Satanic zeal with which the prince of evil will inspire them for the accomplishment of his malignant designs, will bear the semblance of zeal for God.—The Great Controversy, 615 (1911). {LDE 231.2; CKB.163.5}

One last time, all four authors of our movement of the Fourth Angel have the word to gather the few who had the right attitude when the door of mercy closed on October 17/18, 2015 and who continue the process of sanctification, as the Bible says.

He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. (Revelation 22:11)

This series, which we call "The End of the world", will show:

  1. That the time of plagues began on time on October 25, 2015.
  2. What events have already taken place and what their outcome will be.
  3. What signs and wonders are now accompanying the movement of the Fourth Angel.
  4. That all the dates on the plagues cycle of the Orion Clock are exact to the very day.
  5. From when and until when, the weeds are bound into bundles to be burnt up.
  6. When Jesus will start to use the sickle to harvest the good wheat (to gather the remnant of God's people) and when the light of the Fourth Angel will start to lighten the earth.
  7. When the vintage of the bad grapes will begin and the winepress of blood will be trodden.
  8. When the fireballs, which we expected at the Carmel challenge, will fall.
  9. When Satan will obtain complete power over the earth, and how long his hour with the nations will last, according to Revelation 17:12.
  10. When the hour of the destruction of the great city Babylon will come and how long it will last (see Revelation 18:10).
  11. That Jesus Christ will come on time on October 23/24, 2016.
  12. How long our journey to the sea of ​​glass—the Orion Nebula—will really take, and what we will experience along the way.

And you will learn from this series whether you, personally, can still belong to the church of Philadelphia, or whether you will be part of the feast of the fowls of Revelation 19:21.

We plan to publish this series all at once after its completion before the end of January. We would like to ask those who are on our side to pray for the authors and for the work of the 144,000. Thank you.


August 23, 2014: IMITATIONS OF THE ORION MESSAGE

Even in the days of early Christianity, the message of the apostles was distorted and false teachers defaced the teaching of Christ. The apostle Peter confronted one of these deceivers with the following words:

Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee. For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity. (Acts 8:21-23)

We hereby distance ourselves expressly from some people who present parts of the doctrines of our ministry and claim to spread the teachings of John Scotram. In truth, they only represent their own teachings and distort the message of the Fourth Angel, often beyond recognition. We therefore warn you to beware of the following people:

A German “Brother Rubin” who also goes by the name “Joseph Sichem” or “Daniel Freund” and claims to be supported by a “dreamer” whom he calls “Deborah aus Ägypten” (Deborah of Egypt). After our many warnings to him, he does not cease to broadcast his false teachings and distort the true Orion Message. He has written to several leaders such as Walter Veith, Johannes Kolletzki or Nicola Taubert; we assure you that we have nothing to do with this man, except that he never ceases to harass us. He has his own timeline with pure time-setting and not even a mention of the true Fourth Angel’s Message with the Last Generation Theology, the consequences to the universe due to a possible failure and the necessary readiness of the 144,000 to sacrifice, as we have set forth at the end of The Mystery of Ezekiel.

In Samoa, there is a “brother” Satui Sefo, who claims to lead an organization by the name of “Samoan Missionary Society (SMS)”. The name is inspired by the “International Missionary Society (IMS)” of the Reform Movement, which organization he and some other families have left. He teaches a different time line than we do, which no longer points to the Seventh-day Adventist Church. He makes the same mistake of completely brushing aside our high calling and is thus a pure time-setter without the true message for the 144,000.

We hope that you will not be confused by these false teachers or by their “time messages” which do not “bear the special marks of His hand.” {1T 409.1} We pray that they, like Simon Magus, will respond:

Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the Lord for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me. (Acts 8:24)

July 10, 2018: THE LASTCOUNTDOWN BOOK, VERSION 5.3

Please download the new version 5.3 of the LastCountdown Book. We have fixed many links that were broken because we have left YouTube. Our videos are now on our own servers. With this book we bid you adieu.


September 3, 2016: NEW DVD VERSION 5.2

DVD 5.2

With less than two months until the Blessed Hope is realized, our work is at an end. In this final update to our book and DVD, much is made clear with our last light regarding the completed fulfillments of Revelation's sixth seal, which confirms that we are indeed in the time of plagues, and that our hope is not in vain, but solidly anchored. Download the book (pdf) or the DVD (iso) now, before it is too late, for offline reference so you have food for when the famine comes!

When Israel entered the Promised Land, God gave them specific instructions. The conquest of Jericho serves as an illustration for how history could repeat (including the seals of Revelation as explained in History Repeats). In our addendum to this important article, we explain why this model applies, and show how the sixth classical seal (corresponding to the sixth day's march around Jericho) has already been completely fulfilled.

On the seventh day, Israel marched around Jericho seven times, indicating a repetition of the six seals. In our addendum to the article, Signs of the End, we explain how the repeated sixth seal has completely fulfilled in our day.

The Orion presentation has been updated as well. See slides 101-114 for the explanation of how the repetition of the sixth seal has been completely fulfilled.

See also our last article, Anchored in Time, regarding the sixth plague and the nature of Armageddon, as it is unfolding as we speak.

Happy Last High Sabbath on Earth (Sabbath, September 2/3 is new moon)! We hope to meet you soon on "the cloud"!
-The LastCountdown Mailroom Team


August 25, 2016: THE LASTCOUNTDOWN BOOK, VERSION 5.2

Please download the new version 5.2 of the LastCountdown Book. We added the new (and probably last) article Anchored in Time, and two important additions that explain the completed fulfillments of the classical sixth seal and the repeated sixth seal before probation closed in October 2015. The book includes now also the new Orion Presentation 5.0 which has 8 new slides about the sixth seal in the repetition. (See slides 101 to 114.) All is showing us, that time ran out and the horrible seventh plague is right in front of us.


April 22, 2016: THE LASTCOUNTDOWN BOOK, VERSION 5.1

Please download the new version 5.1 of the LastCountdown Book. The Addendum to our four part article series The End of the World was added and a lot of typesetting work was done. Have a blessed time of the harvest.


March 8, 2016: THE LASTCOUNTDOWN BOOK, VERSION 5.0

The LastCountdown Book Version 5.0

Our work is coming to an end, just like this world is. Nevertheless, we are pleased to still be able to offer you the complete, revised and expanded LastCountdown Book, version 5.0. It can be downloaded HERE free, and it includes about 1600 pages of all our studies as a group from the past 6 years.

Also included is the new and final article series, “The End of the World,” wherein all four authors of our movement have a word once more. We hope that this book will be a valuable aid to you in the time of the famine for the Word of God, which is already here.

I could say much, but it’s not in my heart to do so, after so many years of seeing the rejection of the wonderful message that God has given me, so I’ll forbear in this short newsletter.

Just one thing... After my last article, The Hour of Truth, some “people” complained (and were mockingly happy) that we had exposed ourselves as “sun worshippers” because we say that stars are “suns.” Please understand that our articles are addressed to adults with at least an elementary education. We do not expect you all to be scholars, but neither should you have a black hole in the area where one normally thinks.

Jesus, the Son of God, is the center of our worship, and not stars nor suns. Those are just works. Whoever concludes from our last four articles that we glorify something other than only the Creator and true God, has either not read anything, or is on the road to personal perdition through committing the unpardonable sin, which is the rejection of the Holy Spirit. Slander, which some of our opposition now loudly resorts to, leads to the same bottomless pit.

Ellen G. White said:

The 144,000 were all sealed and perfectly united. On their foreheads was written, God, New Jerusalem, and a glorious star containing Jesus’ new name. {EW 15.1}

Those who cannot distinguish between a seal (or symbol) of the Lord, and Himself, should please continue to believe that the earth is flat. It's sad to see that the psychologists are right when they say clearly now that the human race is completely stupefied.

And whoever says that we do not live godly and just, should ask themselves what source such allegations originated from. Be very careful with claims that have not been personally verified, because the Bible says:

Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. (James 4:11)

But here in Paraguay, we are very happy that that those things happen, because it is written that Jesus personally prophesied:

Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. (John 15:20)

May God give you wisdom and understanding.


June 18, 2015: OPERATION "TORRENT" AGAINST DECEIT

March 7, 2014: NEW CHARTS

New Charts

We would like to inform our readers that Robert and John are working simultaneously on two large sets of studies. Robert will assemble detailed accounts of the first 636 days of the Judgment of the Living which have already past, while John is writing on a series of articles about the last 624 days before probation will close. In these articles, we will publish all our biblical study results from our private study forum.

For his sermon on January 31, 2014, John had very little preparation time since he had received the new light about the Orion trumpet and plague cycles just the night before. Therefore, he prepared two date tables for the trumpet and plague cycles which were based on approximations from the Judgment Cycle at a resolution of 168 units. At that time, we still had no computational method for the more accurate resolutions of the Orion Clock with 624 or 336 days.

As part of the work on these new series of articles, we’ve now developed a highly accurate method for determining the dates in all Orion cycles. This resulted in minor changes from 1 to 3 days on a few of the dates in comparison to the tables shown in the sermon of January 31, 2014. Since time is short, we are already publishing the corrected charts for the trumpet and plague cycles in the download section of this homepage. As always, you can download the charts in two qualities - for screen presentations or for printing posters. We ask for your prayers as we work under great time pressure on a huge amount of study material.

May 10, 2017: THE ELIJAH SIGNS (Signs in Heaven)

The Elijah Signs

Chances are good that you have probably heard about the Great Sign in heaven to take place on September 23, 2017, when the imagery of Revelation 12:1 is displayed in the starry heavens.

And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: (Revelation 12:1)

The sign has gained widespread notoriety, because it is reportedly the ONLY TIME that this sign has ever come together in the past 7000 years.

Yet, aside from the discovery of the sign itself, the meaning of the sign is much less understood. With this 6-part sermon, that is no longer the case! Watch, as not only does this great sign come alive with deep meaning and significance, but a complete set of SEVEN heavenly signs are revealed that are amazingly reflected in the texts of the seven trumpets of Revelation. Jesus, the center of all of our studies, revealed the understanding of these seven signs right in time.

The trick is to know when to look, and as anyone vaguely familiar with this ministry knows, the Lord revealed to us months ago—before we knew anything about the Great Sign—the details of the last trumpet cycle, which provided the dates on God’s clock for when to look up and see these seven additional signs.

That’s right, each of the seven dates of the current trumpet cycle have an associated sign in heaven that corresponds beautifully with the text of the trumpet! If you were surprised at the rarity of the Great Sign, then you will surely be astounded when you see what God illustrated in the heavens to get your attention before Jesus throws down the censer and stops interceding for humanity! Heed the trumpet warnings before it’s too late!

This is the message that God has entrusted to the last Elijah. It is a message that is calculated to turn the hearts of fathers and children alike to God, and therefore to each other. In this sermon, you will learn how God has been preparing to give this message, and the crises of understanding that had to be overcome before it could be received for what it is. Not only is the starry revelation presented, but the clear, biblical understanding of each sign is presented. From beginning to end, precious gems of truth revealed in this video series will make your faces shine as you behold the wonders in heaven above that Joel prophesied.

May you be among the good wheat, ripened by the latter rain and gathered with God’s sickle into His barn.


May 25, 2015: WOMEN'S ORDINATION BRINGS SUNDAY LAW

John preached this sermon on June 29, 2013, and now the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to issue its ruling on same-sex marriage on the same date two years later. The accuracy and relevance of this sermon have urged us to include it here! It lays a solid foundation for understanding what is happening now, especially in light of the Death of the Twins article. Below the video is a brief list of the wide range of pertinent subjects that it covers.

Sermon from Sabbath, June 29, 2013.

February 10, 2014: NEW SERMON - THE LAST RACE

The night before his sermon on Sabbath evening, January 31, 2014 John realized through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, how the last seven trumpets and the seven plagues are marked in Orion. The last race for the 144,000 started exactly on Sabbath, February 1 with the sound of the first trumpet of the last days. Please watch the sermon and then read below what has already come to pass.

Sermon from Sabbath eve, January 31, 2014.
Please click CC in the player to activate the subtitles.

The first trumpet in a literal interpretation clearly points to volcanic activity: “The first angel sounded, and there followed hail [stones that are ejected from a volcano] and fire [lava] mingled with blood [persons will die], and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.”

What happened already at the beginning of the phase of the first trumpet on the very first day, February 1, 2014?

  1. Eruption of Sinabung on Sumatra leaves at least 16 dead
  2. For more information about what happened since then, read Trumpets with a Certain Sound

May 2017: THE ELIJAH PROMISE (3 part article series)

The Elijah Promise

Malachi prophesied that Elijah would come just before the great and dreadful day of the Lord. This series will show you that he has indeed come at every critical point in history, including today! You will learn who he is, and what his work entails. You will see who the faithful Elijahs of past generations were, and how each one fulfilled part of the prophecy and added to our understanding of what the last Elijah must accomplish. You will learn who the last Elijah is, and why you can be certain that he (and you) will not miss seeing the coming of the Lord, as his predecessors did. Finally, you will see how signs and wonders are accompanying the modern Elijah, and how the characteristic fire from heaven of his namesake will bring the world to a decision point to serve God or Satan, and how he equips this generation to be faithful to God through the time of trouble.

For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. (Malachi 4:1)


November 22, 2016: THE SACRIFICE OF PHILADELPHIA

The Sacrifice of PhiladelphiaOur new study website White Cloud Farm continues the articles of LastCountdown and begins with a four-part series about the second phase of God's time proclamation as it was prophcied more than 170 years ago. A sacrifice was needed that God would grant even more grace to humanity: the sacrifice of Philadelphia.

In this series, you will find an account from four different perspectives, of our experience and understanding that led to the birth of this new phase of ministry. You will read of a profound revelation that God gave us and our experience in trying to communicate the things of God to this pitiable generation. Details are shared from the experience that God brought us through until we were ready to make the sacrifice of Philadelphia, along with an insider view of our hopes and fears; our pain and joy. It is the story of God’s leading of His little children and the development of our understanding in the process, both of our past experience, and what we see in the years ahead. May God bless you as you read.


August 12, 2016: ANCHORED IN TIME

It is the Lord!Armageddon. It's the ultimate battle of the ages, whose name is synonymous with apocalyptic conflict and devastation. Where will it be fought, and with what weapons? These are important questions for one who wants to come out alive! And the answers are finally available!

In this last article Anchored in Time, we trace the Last Countdown to its last tick, and point you to what really matters in your preparation to meet the Lord at last when He comes. Armor up for the battle, because you just might be thrown a curve ball! It's the ultimate devilish deception that is calculated to make the elect fall, but rest assured, the Lord has given ample provision, revealing His secrets to His servants as they are needed. Don't be caught in the dark!

To what is your faith anchored? Will your anchor hold against the fiendish onslaught of fiery darts precisely calculated to break it free? This is too weighty a matter to presume we will be strong enough for. We must have a solid assurance, and it is the purpose of the Revelation to provide that assurance for us! Will you receive this gift of God from Jesus' right hand?


March 26, 2016: IT IS THE LORD!

It is the Lord!The Spirit of truth guides us into all truth. We want Him to continue guiding you into all truth too, which is why we share this update to our four-author article series. It is not important who the writers are, but that it testifies of Jesus Christ. This addendum will show you a multifaceted picture of Jesus that has never been seen before. It is like a time-lapse photograph of Him in prophetic language!

He who knows our need before we ask, already had an answer when we asked Him about the harvest, and the light we share in this addendum not only addresses that subject, but offers solutions to other age-old enigmas that have challenged Bible students everywhere. Discover the time advantage, and why it is that this ministry is the one God has chosen to reveal these secrets to. Our God is an awesome God, so prepare to be amazed!


February 11, 2016: THE HOUR OF TRUTH

The Hour of TruthDo you know the time of your visitation, and are you aware that the Hour of Truth has come? Satan will soon have his hour with the beast, and then Jesus, the Word of God, will get His hour—the hour of Truth, of Life and of the Door, through which many more shall yet enter and embark with us for the journey through Orion into the Kingdom of God.

This, the last article that you will receive from my quill, was written for the honor of God and to gather the great flock which—like the 144,000 before them—should reflect the love that Jesus has shown to us. May He point the Way to the Door of eternity and bestow on you the Crown of Time. It is my desire to forever sing with you there this song of glorious praise about the love of God—the song that you need to learn now.

Hence, Jesus’ prayer for unity in truth has become my prayer too:

Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. (John 17:17-19)


February 5, 2016: THE TIME OF HARVEST

The Time of HarvestSince the time of Noah, humanity has been trusting in the promise of God:

While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. (Exodus 8:22)

They believe that the earth is continuing to turn and everything is like it has always been. They sow and harvest, feast, laugh, dance, build, and marry… in such a way as if nothing could go wrong. But they forget to take a look at the end and to lift up their heads, for they know not the time of their visitation.

But the time comes, the day comes, when God will let the last seed mature and will harvest the good wheat from it, the “remnant of her seed” (Revelation 12:17). And this point of time has now come, whether you like it or not! In a few months, the earth will stop giving and maintaining life. The promise to Noah will reach its final fulfilment!

The overdue wheat of the earth is only crying out: “Lord, thrust in thy sickle and reap,” because the abominations have reached unto heaven! Wherever you look, there is mockery and scorn in answer to the warnings of God. But at the time of the harvest—which is now—everyone will reap what he has sown. God sowed the good seed and so He will bring in the good wheat. Satan, on the other hand, will receive all the bundles of tares and the grapes of Rome, which will be served to him over the fire of the plagues.

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap. For he that sows to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that sows to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. (Galatians 6:7-8)

The sickle has been whetted; it is sharp and ready for stoke after stroke. Come and read this article to know when it will happen!


January 29, 2016: THE GREAT SEAL

The Great SealMany centuries ago, King Hezekiah sealed a document by pressing his seal into a small lump of clay. Little could he know what an impact that insignificant action would have one day! While the world sees value in it because of the importance of Hezekiah, God meant much more with it. He who knows the end from the beginning, led in the affairs of men so that the announcement of this significant discovery would be made at an even more significant time!

Do you understand the times in which we live? Do you discern the timing, by which last day events occur? In this article, evidence from the Temple Mount in Jerusalem adds to the mountains of evidence already presented, and brings a beautiful message of blessing for those who understand and believe in the messages of the clocks of God. May you also partake of that blessing, is our prayer!


January 23, 2016: THE HOLY GRAIL

The Holy GrailThis four-part series of articles represents the Holy Grail of the Christian faith. As such, it challenges the uniting of all religions as Pope Francis, the representative of the entire Catholic world (not to say the entire world), is seeking to bring to pass. His teaching reduces the belief in Jesus Christ to a mere belief in so-called “love,” but what he misses is that not all religions offer the same caliber of love.

Does your belief in Jesus Christ put a kind of love in your heart that is no different than that of any other religion? I assure you that after ingesting this first article in this series, you will not view the Christian faith in such a trivial light. Our aim, aside from writing out of a sense of the sheer love of truth for the glory of God, is to inspire sincere Catholics Christians (including Protestants and Catholics) to practice the kind of love that Jesus did, and we will present it to you in such a clear way that you will not be able to mistake it for anything less. The undiluted truth is in the cup that Jesus drank, and that is what this article is about.

Staying with the metaphor of the Holy Grail, we could say that Part 1 of this series is about the cup, what it contains, and what it means to drink it. Part 2 is about the certainty of the reward for those who drink it all. Part 3 is about the rightful heirs who discarded that priceless relic, thus making it available to you. Part 4 unpacks it for you to see, but not yet touch. That will come soon enough if you are faithful. Is it tantalizing? It is!


October 30, 2015: THE TEARS OF GOD

The Tears of GodSince 1846, it was prophesied that in the last days, a movement of Christians would arise who would proclaim to the day, two specific events:

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

Since 2011, we proclaimed October 25, 2015 as the date of the commencement of the last seven plagues. The Vessel of Time specified this very day, and since we were able to determine the exact duration of the plagues from the study of the autumn sacrifices, we also know the date of Jesus’ return (see the countdown at the left).

On January 31, 2014, we received additional light about the trumpet and plague cycles with the respective exact dates for the individual trumpets and plagues. This is the theme of the sermon, The Last Race. It was also predicted that the fulfillment of the judgments of God according to Ezekiel 9 in the trumpet cycle, would in mercy be held by four "Holds" and four cries of "My blood" by Jesus (see The Resurrection of the Two Witnesses). These judgments have thus been postponed to the plague cycle, where they will finally be executed without mercy. Because hurricane "Patricia," the most powerful hurricane ever recorded, was also held back on October 24 and 25, we realized that the time of the first plague (the noisome sores) corresponds to a final exam by the Holy Spirit, and that the killing of Ezekiel 9 will not begin until the second plague comes on December 2, 2015.

What many believe was a blessing from God, when "Patricia" was held back, are indeed the Tears of God that He cries because of what He must do now. Read our new article to understand what it means to live in the time when grace is no more and the plagues are upon you.


September 22, 2015: THE DAY OF THE DEMON

The Day of the DemonThis article is for non-Adventists. It examines the European refugee crisis in depth, comparing it to two historical events: the Fall of Troy and the Piedmont Easter. It explores the Muslim’s trigger programming for the Great Jihad, and shows how plans have already been laid to initiate violence on a specific date.

The article closes with a call to urgent action to spread this message far and wide, and to prepare yourself spiritually ahead of that day, which will be the day of the demon that initiates the great tribulation such as never was since man was upon the earth.


September 5, 2015: IN THE SHADOW OF TIME

In the Shadow of TimeBiblical chronology outlines about 4000 years of history before Christ, and Peter’s statement that a day with the Lord is as a thousand years, has led many to mark the 2000th year after Jesus’ crucifixion as the year that He may return, rounding out six 1000-year workdays leading to the millennium of rest. Please allow us to explore this concept a little deeper, for in the shadow of time, another clock is hidden, adding another gem to every timekeeper’s treasure. It is a simple clock for the Modern Era, delineating the allotted time until the whole earth is to be filled with the glory of God.

The Father is inviting guests to His Son’s wedding, but many who were bidden have spurned their invitation. Now the invitation goes out to others. Come get your wedding garment—and while you’re at it, it would be a great help if you would perform the part of a servant, and go out to the highways with us, to gather all who are willing to come. The wedding is ready, but there are still many vacant seats. Come quickly, before the door is forever closed!


August 30, 2015: WILLIAM MILLER'S TREASURE

William Miller's TreasureWilliam Miller’s Dream describes the incorruptible treasure that God has in store for you. Have you looked into the treasures of Miller anew? Have you seen the jewels of his new casket shining with ten times the glory? What would you be willing to give in exchange for it?

While Babel is rising like a thief to take away all earthly treasure, now more than ever it is time to turn the affections of the heart heavenward.

But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (Matthew 6:20-21)


August 16, 2015: LIGHTENED WITH HIS GLORY

Lightened with His GloryWe invite you to come with us on a journey. It’s a journey through a little-appreciated, but amazingly beautiful realm of God’s creation: Time. As we travel, we will stop at the waymarks of Adventist history, we will fly back to Creation and speed through some of the highlights of biblical chronology before coming back and taking a closer look at the recent past in this summary of the Fourth Angel’s Message who comes so that Earth may be Lightened with His Glory

Like a little child, let’s go as inquirers, seeking to understand how God communicates. We hope you enjoy the experience and gain a new appreciation for God and His creation. We may experience a little turbulence on the way, though, so buckle your seat-belts! It is His purpose to draw His children to Himself, so if you realize that there are things you need to change in your life, know that Jesus waits with open arms to receive you.


July 19, 2015: THE RESURRECTION OF THE TWO WITNESSES

The Resurrection of the Two WitnessesThe verdict is in for the Challenge at Mount Carmel! The Two Witnesses were dead and have risen again! The Seventh-day Adventist World Church organization voted to close its own door of probation and now suffers the terrible consequences!

This article explains the meaning of the “no” vote on women's ordination and shows that the result is an example for even worse things to come this October.

Begin to prepare now, before your time also runs out!


June 21, 2015: THE VOMIT OF GOD AND THE CLOSE OF PROBATION

The Vomit of God and the Close of ProbationThe "Holy" Father (Pope Francis) is giving his full support to gay rights! Meanwhile, the SDA Church is trying to hush all voices that speak against women's ordination.

Our new article entitled The Vomit of God and the Close of Probation dispels the mist about what is happening today as we approach the appointed time of the Carmel Challenge. It covers many subjects, including:

  • Why Pope Francis chose Paraguay, of all places, for his "coming out"
  • Why LGBT tolerance (and women's ordination) is symbolized by locusts in the Bible
  • How the first five trumpets have fulfilled, and how they are getting louder for the big blast of the sixth trumpet
  • The prophetic significance of Stephen Bohr's retirement in relation to Ezekiel 9
  • The urgent need for the Lamb's bride to make herself ready

Don't forget to join OPERATION "TORRENT" to help distribute the message of the Fourth Angel!

Since March 11, 2017: Prophecies Fulfilled

home shofar cycle 250A new section "Prophecies Fulfilled" on our second study website White Cloud Farm continues the "World News" of our Last Countdown website.

In our anxiety and desperation to bring salvation to at least a few remaining true Christians, who still believe in Satan’s lies in one way or another even though God’s clock hands point to all of His valid and life-essential rules and teachings, we asked for more time. God knew our request before we asked it, and for that reason, He only let the Bible texts fulfill partially during the first trumpet cycle. Thus, He opened the possibility for the second and last trumpet cycle, which completes the first and runs parallel to it from November 22, 2016 until the beginning of the plagues on August 20, 2018.

One last time, scoffers and doubters have an opportunity to experience even more serendipitous fulfillments at the “clock times” indicated by God—this time under the more challenging requirement that specific parts of the trumpet text must be fulfilled, which had not yet been fulfilled in the first pass. Will this lead some wavering ones to believe when it comes to pass?

The countdown is ticking. After the sixth (complementary) trumpet, there will be no more repentance nor conversion. Receive and accept the gene of life, and God will grant you eternity!


November 12, 2015: Ben Carson Caught Violating Twins He Separated!

Ben Carson Caught Violating Twins He Separated With all of the publicity that Ben Carson has been getting lately, it seemed appropriate to share a personal experience I, Ray Dickinson, had that revealed an unexpected, but significant detail about him. Although I had the utmost respect for him in past years, I have come to realize (especially during his presidential campaign) that he may not have all the integrity that his background generally indicates.

We believe the public should know and understand the implications of this, and we present it with the hopes that you will not just pick up another bit of information on Dr. Carson, but that you will recognize that there is a war being waged on earth that is far greater than any human conflict. We hope that this will awaken you to the presence of that greater reality, so that your focus will be directed to the voice of God from heaven rather than being lost on earthly details. Then, with clear vision, you can make a clear choice.


August 11, 2015: Babel Rising - And You Thought It Was Just A Game

Babel Rising - And You Thought It Was Just A Game The final rapid movements of earth’s history are finishing up right before our eyes. You can kiss your personal freedoms and unalienable rights good-bye (if you still have any)...because the One-World Government HAS BEEN APPROVED, and will become effective in September this year, when all 193 nation states of the world will sign away their sovereignty, and Satan will take full control of the world. The Tower of Babel is rising again.

RUN, if you are still a member of any Church organization! Find out what you need to personally live for (or die for) before probation closes on this October 17!


June 5, 2015: Jade Helm - Military Blockade Against God's Witnesses

Jade Helm - Military Blockade Against God's Witnesses There is a lot of talk in the US about the Jade Helm military exercise. But what is it really about? You might not guess that it has anything to do with the authority of God in your life, but this world news brief explains how its logo shows that those who continue to uphold God’s authority in their relationships will be persecuted, even by the military.

It is a very serious subject that involves everyone, not only in the US, but around the globe. And it is up close and personal—perhaps even painful. Let it bring you to Jesus for healing. No matter what we experience on this earth, standing for the truth is worth all that it might cost.

It will not be long, and it will all be over. Be faithful to the Wounded One, Alnitak and let’s meet in the cloud!


May 7, 2015: Capital Crime: Pope Francis Kidnaps God’s Bride! (Isaiah 62:5)

Capital Crime: Pope Francis Kidnaps God’s Bride! (Isaiah 62:5) The SDA Church was kidnapped by Pope Francis and his accomplices like Ted Wilson. Now they plan to forcibly silence the people of God in the last bastion.

This news article affirms that “the church is not Babylon” while clearly drawing the lines where they belong between the sheep and the wolves.

In the end, you will learn what truly defines God’s remnant church. Are you included in the definition yet?


May 1, 2015: Rape Attempt Foiled in Sodom: LGBTQISDA Church Blinded by Four Angels (Gen. 19)

Rape Attempt Foiled in Sodom: LGBTQISDA Church Blinded by Four Angels (Gen. 19) In its General Conference Session brochure, the SDA Church announces that it will reach the UNTHINKABLE goal of changing its policy to grant equal treatment to homosexuals this July. Some parts of the church (Adventist Health in Florida, for example) have already set aside God's law on the matter in order to comply with man's (state) law.

This World News brief gives an eye-opening perspective on just how deeply embroiled the last truly Protestant church has become in this mess.

If you find these circumstances disturbing—as you should—I can only urge you to read Fire at Mount Carmel, and take the challenge seriously. The spiritual battle is intense, and it is high time to put your full strength on the Lord’s side.


April 28, 2015: Hidden Agenda Revealed: Will SDA Church Elect Female President?

Women in Leadership In the official brochure for the 60th Session of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, the church leadership has communicated their agenda for the Session. The language they selected for the brochure is the universal language of symbols.

The General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists selected the Eastern Star of Freemasonry to represent the church, when they should have selected the star Alnitak, which means “the Wounded One” who is at the center of the Orion clock in the eastern heavens.

The masonic star on the 2015 Session brochure shows in symbolic language that the masterminds behind the GC have already decided that the ordination of women will be approved for the World Church during this Session.

As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths. (Isaiah 3:12)

Read the full news brief to find out why the church has been so decided on reaching this goal of allowing women in leadership.


April 12, 2015: SDA Church President Ted Wilson Caught in Bed with “Five Whores”! (Rev. 2:22)

Ted Wilson with Ban Ki-Moon SDA Church president Ted Wilson meets brothel-keeper Ban Ki-moon and lands in bed with Pope Franci's whores.

The Adventist Review explains the purpose of the meeting:

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon expressed concerns about growing religious intolerance worldwide during a private meeting with Adventist Church leader Ted N.C. Wilson...

Our news report explains how for a long time now, Ted Wilson has been working toward the UN’s Millennium Development Goals--which he calls "shared goals." Ted Wilson has almost completely adapted the church to the New World Order agenda, but he needs the 2015 GC Session's approval vote on several key points.

Read the article to find out why Ban Ki-moon is concerned, and why Ted Wilson is feeling the heat.


April 7, 2015: State senator calling for Sunday Law finds Seventh-day Adventists sleeping at the wheel

Sunday LawArizona Senator Sylvia Allen transmitted a secret message while recommending the creation of a law that would require every American to attend church on Sunday.

Her comments reveal Satan’s agenda, fulfill prophecy (even time prophecy) and secretly point the finger at High Sabbath Adventists by saying that a person who wants to do violence will use a “clock in a courtroom” just as well as a knife. High Sabbath Adventists are the ones who use the Clock of God in the Courtroom of Heaven to expose the papacy, and that is why they are vilified as being equal to a violent killer.

In Senator Allen’s remarks, you can see the real-life fulfillment of another prophecy of Ellen White:

In legislative halls and courts of justice, commandment keepers will be misrepresented and condemned. A false coloring will be given to their words; the worst construction will be put upon their motives. {GC 592.1}

March 24, 2015: 10 Reasons Why the Eclipse of March 20 Was Prophetic

Ten Reasons From a strictly astronomical perspective, the total solar eclipse of March 20, 2015 was special because it was very rare, but that’s not all. The biblical aspect offers several more features to make the eclipse special.

The blotting out of Satan’s usurped kingdom is prophesied to come in “the day of the Lord,” which is a reference to the time when God will pour out His wrath upon the world in the seven last plagues.

The darkening of the sun and moon prophesied by Isaiah adds several more criteria to pinpoint this eclipse. Although there have been similar eclipses in the past, these 10 criteria have never all been completely fulfilled since Isaiah’s words were recorded, until now.
