The Last Countdown

Jesus with the sickleMost Christians know that the harvest of the faithful followers of God must come at the end of time. Jesus left behind some parables and hints in the Bible to help us properly understand the harvest. Many people wonder: Why do the wicked prosper? Yes, they often fare much better than those who want to live in a way that is pleasing to God. There must eventually come a separation between the wheat and the tares, which is NOW, because we are in the time when God shows His justice.

Do you think that you belong to the good wheat, or are you living from one party day to the next, regardless? Are you really sure that the door of mercy has not yet closed, or does your conscience prick you when you read on our website that the time of mercy is over? What if it really is over, notwithstanding that the anticipated major disasters have not yet struck?

Does this issue interest you at all, or do you just want to remain oblivious? Have the two previous articles about the events that have taken place and the significance of the discovery of the seal of King Hezekiah touched your heart? Were you happy with the blessing that was promised for the end of the 1335 days, or is it just a lot of hot air to you? Did you climb up the mountain of truth and understanding, which my friend and brother Robert wrote about, and did you decide to put the cup of selfless love to your lips as a result? Did it become real to you that we are already living in the final stage of a time which has already been shortened? I can well imagine that although you’ve read the articles of my two fellow authors, you still can’t quite believe it. God revealed long ago that virtually no one would recognize the time after the closing of the door of mercy. Ellen G. White wrote:

When God’s presence was finally withdrawn from the Jewish nation, priests and people knew it not. Though under the control of Satan, and swayed by the most horrible and malignant passions, they still regarded themselves as the chosen of God. The ministration in the temple continued; sacrifices were offered upon its polluted altars, and daily the divine blessing was invoked upon a people guilty of the blood of God’s dear Son and seeking to slay His ministers and apostles. So 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. {GC 615.1}

The recognition of the closing of the door of mercy is an act of FAITH. There was no literal door slamming shut with a great noise. It was an event in the heavenly sanctuary, and therefore faith is needed—a faith that is attentive to the open space in Orion, because that is where the voice of God comes from. That is the only place where we will find what we are looking for.

Or, is the reason for your indifference, that you think that God cannot be so cruel as to send such terrible plagues and judgments upon the world. But is it necessarily true that He is the one who causes the plagues, anyway?

A single angel destroyed all the first-born of the Egyptians and filled the land with mourning. When David offended against God by numbering the people, one angel caused that terrible destruction by which his sin was punished. The same destructive power exercised by holy angels when God commands, will be exercised by evil angels when He permits. There are forces now ready, and only waiting the divine permission, to spread desolation everywhere. {GC 614.2}

Because of your indecision, God has not allowed the plagues to be poured out in full measure, but He will permit it soon—even very soon. Satan, the fallen angels, and those who are in bondage to him will cause the impending disasters, but not God. It will all culminate in one last struggle in the battle of Armageddon. In fact, Jesus Himself and all His angels will literally fight against the army of evil. Do you want to know when that will take place? Then come, and continue reading what God has revealed.

Anyhow, before the full measure of destruction can be permitted to fall upon the world, the good wheat must be collected. There must be a little flock in this world who have received the affection of God. There must be those whom the Holy Spirit has already marked for moving in the right spiritual direction and for being pure of heart in God’s eyes. And yet, we in our small group here in Paraguay still do not know them all, and we do not even know if we will ever know them by name until we meet them on the white cloud. It appears as if they still have not awakened from their slumber, but we know for sure that the 144,000 must already be sealed by the Holy Spirit because the door of mercy has been closed since October 17/18, 2015. However, there is another group of people in these last days who will in a special way give their testimony for their Father in heaven and His faultless character, which the moral law[1] also depicts. This article is one of the last ones to address and awaken you—the rest of the multitude which no man could number—so you might recognize the glory of the Lord in faith.

The Great Divisive Message

Before we go into the topic of the harvest, we need to deal with the groups that are involved. They are playing their role in the final act on the world stage in these last days of earth’s history (after the end of mercy), observed by the entire universe.[2] This article is closely linked to my other article, Two Armies, and I would wholeheartedly recommend for you to refresh your memory on it before you continue to study this article. They belong together.

In the previous two articles of this series, my two friends presented the meaning of life in a loving and moving way, which the righteous should recognize here at the end of the world. By contrast, my article will show quite clearly how sharp a two-edged sword can be—and it definitely is. God is not only Mercy but also Justice, and He does not leave us guessing as to what it means to Him.

And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. (Revelation 1:16)

Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. (Revelation 2:16)

And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. (Revelation 19:13-15)

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

Have you noticed that these are all quotations from the book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ? The first two have often been used in our articles. They are at the beginning of the Revelation and are a warning in a sense, and therefore they relate to the period before the end of grace. The last two verses, however, show Jesus Christ with a robe dipped in blood. They deal with the wrath of God and the killing of the “remnant,” so they clearly refer to the time of plagues. Therefore, we must ask, who is that “remnant” that is mentioned? We will come back to that soon.

Of course there is no literal two-edged sword coming out of Jesus’ mouth. It is a symbol in one of the most important prophetic books of the Bible, and therefore it needs to be interpreted. The Bible itself tells us what it means:

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; (Ephesians 6:14-18)

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. (Hebrews 4:12-13)

That is clear! Who, after reading those verses, would still deny that the Word of God clearly challenges you to make a decision, a separation (dividing asunder), and that everything will ultimately come to light, and nothing will remain hidden? Anyone who would deny that, has been forsaken by the Spirit of God, and that in itself is already an indication that he could possibly belong to the aforementioned “remnant” who will be slain.

I will repeatedly mention in this article that the investigative judgment of the dead and living has been completed, and each case has been decided before the Great Judge in the great heavenly Day of Atonement. The question for you personally is, how were your “thoughts and intents of the heart,” as the Bible verse expresses!? God’s Word was the guiding principle in that judgment! Did you recognize His voice and discover His seal in our articles?

We tried again and again on our website, by our articles, through our World News, through newsletters, Facebook posts, and in many private messages to point out the abominations of this time and the variety of unclean things[3] that should not be touched[4] but have found their way into the churches and the world.

Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. (Matthew 10:34-39)

Were you able to distance yourself from all the bad, even if it meant problems in your family, or did you succumb? Did you use the time of preparation, or are you still in Babylon? Can you drink from the cup of Jesus, which Brother Robert wrote about, and take up your cross as a true Christian? That will determine if you can and will still continue on the path of sanctification, or whether you will suffer what God has in store for the unjust, and what we—my friend John and I—unfortunately have to present to you in our two articles.

Why do I quote those verses and bring them back to your mind? Because I want to be clear and show you once more that the time of seeing through rose-tinted glasses is long gone. Now it is important to clearly show who is really following the advice of Jesus, by having already separated. Now it is important to identify which actors are on which side of the world scene and which banner they are waving. Ellen G. White was shown the terrible spiritual battle that raged until the door of mercy closed. Read carefully:

In vision I saw two armies in terrible conflict. One army was led by banners bearing the world’s insignia; the other was led by the bloodstained banner of Prince Immanuel. Standard after standard was left to trail in the dust as company after company from the Lord’s army joined the foe and tribe after tribe from the ranks of the enemy united with the commandment-keeping people of God. An angel flying in the midst of heaven put the standard of Immanuel into many hands, while a mighty general cried out with a loud voice: “Come into line. Let those who are loyal to the commandments of God and the testimony of Christ now take their position. Come out from among them, and be ye separate, and touch not the unclean, and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters. Let all who will come up to the help of the Lord, to the help of the Lord against the mighty.”

The battle raged. Victory alternated from side to side. Now the soldiers of the cross gave way, “as when a standardbearer fainteth.” Isaiah 10:18. But their apparent retreat was but to gain a more advantageous position. Shouts of joy were heard. A song of praise to God went up, and angel voices united in the song, as Christ’s soldiers planted His banner on the walls of fortresses till then held by the enemy. The Captain of our salvation was ordering the battle and sending support to His soldiers. His power was mightily displayed, encouraging them to press the battle to the gates. He taught them terrible things in righteousness as He led them on step by step, conquering and to conquer.

At last the victory was gained. The army following the banner with the inscription, “The commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus,” was gloriously triumphant. The soldiers of Christ were close beside the gates of the city, and with joy the city received her King. The kingdom of peace and joy and everlasting righteousness was established.

Now the church is militant. Now we are confronted with a world in midnight darkness, almost wholly given over to idolatry. But the day is coming in which the battle will have been fought, the victory won. The will of God is to be done on earth, as it is done in heaven. Then the nations will own no other law than the law of heaven. All will be a happy, united family, clothed with the garments of praise and thanksgiving—the robe of Christ’s righteousness. All nature, in its surpassing loveliness, will offer to God a constant tribute of praise and adoration. The world will be bathed in the light of heaven. The years will move on in gladness. The light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be sevenfold greater than it is now. Over the scene the morning stars will sing together, and the sons of God will shout for joy, while God and Christ will unite in proclaiming: “There shall be no more sin, neither shall there be any more death.”

This is the scene that is presented to me. But the church must and will fight against seen and unseen foes. Satan’s agencies in human form are on the ground. Men have confederated to oppose the Lord of hosts. These confederacies will continue until Christ shall leave His place of intercession before the mercy seat and shall put on the garments of vengeance. Satanic agencies are in every city, busily organizing into parties those opposed to the law of God. Professed saints and avowed unbelievers take their stand with these parties. This is no time for the people of God to be weaklings. We cannot afford to be off our guard for one moment. {8T 41.1–42.2}

The messenger of the Lord had to watch the back-and-forth change of sides—how did it end? Did God’s judgment people, the Seventh-day Adventist Church, prove that they were not weaklings? Did they stand guard in the dark night without falling asleep? First let’s find out how the 144,000 are doing, who should have come from their ranks, because they play an important and prominent role in the last act. Besides the fact that there are differing opinions as to whether it is a literal[5] or a symbolic number,[6] there is even a notion that we are dealing with real unmarried female virgins.

And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God. (Revelation 14:1-5)

Since we are dealing with a prophetic vision here, we are confronted with symbols. We can be sure that we wouldn’t need to search for literal women, nor have to inquire about their virginity. The 144,000 are a symbol of God’s pure church, which is described as a pure woman in revelation 12. We already described the various symbolic attributes of the woman in The End of the Seventh-day Adventist Church article, and I won’t repeat that again here.

That they were not defiled with women means that this little company no longer belongs to any organization or church. That has probably been “overlooked” by most Adventists and believers in other Christian churches. No, the churches and their organizations do not save, as many wrongly assume. On the contrary, no one who wants to be among the 144,000 is allowed to belong to a church organization. At this point, we refer to the banner video for this article on our website, which is about precisely that. Enjoy it once more, and carefully think over the two different sets of lyrics.

I can imagine that for someone or another, that is the first shock in this article. I can already hear the outcry: “Am I now lost, or is there still a chance?”

Let’s keep thinking logically. If the 144,000 are not part of a church organization, which is clearly biblically supported, by when did they have to be removed from the books of their respective organizations? Was there a deadline? Yes, in the truest sense of the word. In all of the articles that we published in the time between the sixth trumpet of the trumpet cycle (July 8, 2015) and the end of mercy for humanity (October 17/18, 2015), we explicitly called for those last few weeks to be used to permanently leave the sinking churches of the General Conference organization. That was after we recognized that even God’s SDA church had become a part of Babylon, irreversibly. During that time, the call was also given specifically to the part of the 144,000 who were still in other Christian churches and denominations.

And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth [picturing the time of plagues], 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)

But when the door of mercy closed on the evening of October 17, 2015 according to the clocks of God, the process of releasing the four winds began. Thus the determined biblical time limit expired for sealing this small righteous group through the Holy Spirit. All of the 144,000 were already sealed on the evening of October 17, and that was only possible if they did not officially belong to any church organization.

Let us briefly examine the question of why they canceled their membership! It is not hard to find the answer. They were awake, they had an inexpressible desire for truth and therefore they recognized the corruptions that were creeping in everywhere. They sighed and cried[7] and looked for solutions and answers. They took Jesus at His word and searched[8] incessantly until they were led by the Holy Spirit to the message of God at They saw all the transgressions of the church in the last 170 years displayed on the heavenly judgment clock of God. Sadly, only a handful of Adventists found the way out of the apostate SDA church, and even fewer actually went that way. However, God also showed some people from His other folds[9] the way to our homepage, miraculously, and we know some of them personally.

God’s ways are not always our ways and His thoughts are much higher than ours. The question has always been, where are the majority of the 144,000 who are already collected and sealed? We know just as little as Elijah, who also felt alone, but the 7000 who were faithful to God did exist, and they fulfilled their obligation. And what is the duty of the 144,000 in the time of plagues? Is their high calling only to stand without sin at a time when there is no intercessor, or will they actively help as harvest workers?

To answer this question fully, we must once again grapple with a very well-known passage in the Bible:

And after these things I saw another angel [the Holy Spirit in the latter rain] come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven [Jesus or the Father Himself], saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. (Revelation 18:1-6)

The work of the Holy Spirit in the latter rain is finished. The latter rain was poured out beginning in 2010 through the Orion message and it has done its work. The laborers for the last working hour of the day (the 144,000) were found through this message. They learned a particular song[10] before the plagues, and they will sing it in the plagues too, as we shall see shortly!

Then another voice comes from heaven, which makes the call to leave all the churches of Babylon and to pour out the cup of vengeance on them. Without a doubt, this call comes in the time of plagues, and we need to think about who is making this call and to whom it is addressed.

Who does God refer to as “my people” in this text? Anyone who is allowed to make the journey to the Orion Nebula on the white cloud at the return of Christ is definitely one of God’s people: the 144,000, the people from the special resurrection, and also the great multitude from the first resurrection. We just saw that the 144,000 completely left Babylon before the plagues, however, so this call can’t apply to the 144,000. Thus, it is reasonable to assume that the 144,000 are the ones who make that call as the earthly representatives of the voice of God from heaven!

To underscore this, let’s check when Babylon really fell. As you read, pay attention to the fact that the fourth angel’s message of Revelation 18:1-3 is actually a repetition of the second angel’s message of Revelation 14:

The second angel’s message of Revelation 14 was first preached in the summer of 1844, and it then had a more direct application to the churches of the United States, where the warning of the judgment had been most widely proclaimed and most generally rejected, and where the declension in the churches had been most rapid. But the message of the second angel did not reach its complete fulfillment in 1844. The churches then experienced a moral fall, in consequence of their refusal of the light of the advent message; but that fall was not complete. As they have continued to reject the special truths for this time they have fallen lower and lower. Not yet, however, can it be said that “Babylon is fallen,... because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” She has not yet made all nations do this. The spirit of world conforming and indifference to the testing truths for our time exists and has been gaining ground in churches of the Protestant faith in all the countries of Christendom; and these churches are included in the solemn and terrible denunciation of the second angel. But the work of apostasy has not yet reached its culmination [in Ellen G. White’s lifetime].

The Bible declares that before the coming of the Lord, Satan will work “with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness;” and they that “received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved,” will be left to receive “strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.” 2 Thessalonians 2:9-11. Not until this condition shall be reached, and the union of the church with the world shall be fully accomplished throughout Christendom, will the fall of Babylon be complete. The change is a progressive one, and the perfect fulfillment of Revelation 14:8 is yet future. {GC 389.2–3}

From the quote we can clearly see that it is about the union of the churches with the world, and that all peoples or nations have drunk of the wine of Rome. Do I really have to remind you of the last few years and decades during which Rome reached out on all sides, offering her wine to all Christian denominations? You will hear a lot more about that in this article. The Lutherans were one of the first to fall to his flattery, and all the other Protestant and charismatic churches followed suit. Yes, even the Waldensians who were cruelly slaughtered by Rome in the Dark Ages were happy to kiss the hands of their former enemy! The purportedly faithful Adventist Church successfully played with fire and now also sits at the stake, which is ready to be kindled in the fire of the plagues. And the great mediator, “Pope” Francis, recently managed to unite all nations under him. We reported about all of that, and you can read it all over our website. We are therefore fully justified in saying that Babylon is completely fallen, because “the union of the church with the world” is “fully accomplished throughout Christendom.”

Thus the second angel’s message is completely fulfilled, and the time has come for the other call, or the new song, to sound “Come out of her!”

The call to the remnant of God’s people who can still be called out of Babylon during the time of plagues must take place continuously in the coming months. The 144,000 who were sealed as the firstfruits to God will sound the loud cry. This article will reveal the exact time when it will be made with full strength. Please be patient with me until we come to it!

Let’s summarize the groups of people who participate in the time of plagues, and whose side they are fighting on.

  • The 144,000 who already left Babylon promptly before the end of mercy and were sealed. They are going through the time of plagues alive and are sounding the loud cry.

  • Those who will still be called out from Babylon by the 144,000 during the time of plagues. They are part of the “righteous” that we had already found in the Two Armies article, in which we wrote the following about them:

    It has been very difficult to harmonize this Bible verse with “only the 144,000” because we believed that they were the only ones who could come out of the great tribulation. Now we know better.

    The many “righteous” have never, or only partially, heard the fourth angel’s message, and yet they will make up the majority of the saved in these last days. Thus, for them, time is never again to be a test, as Ellen G. White predicted. But it will be the test for belonging to the 144,000. Everyone who has come in contact with the fourth angel’s message and rejected it has no affiliation with the 144,000, and has even committed the unpardonable sin against the Holy Spirit, too!

    They will come out of Babylon and endure the persecution with the 144,000. They will thereby lose their physical lives, but they will be raised in the special resurrection and will experience the return of Jesus.

  • Finally, we have the “remnant” of Revelation 19:21 whom Jesus will slay with His Word when He returns. They are fighting on Satan’s side. Unfortunately, this will be the biggest group. We will talk about their fate later.

Now only one question remains to be answered, namely, how will these “righteous” get called out? Some of you might get your next shock in answering this question when you realize what message the harvest comes through:

The message of the angel following the third is now to be given to all parts of the world. It is to be the harvest message, and the whole earth will be lighted with the glory of God.—Letter 86, 1900. {LDE 208.1}

Yes friends, there it is! After three comes four, right? It is the message of the fourth angel, which had been given first to Adventists since 2010 and is now, especially in the plague cycle, being given to all others who desire it. It will serve as the harvest message. The messages of the second and the third angels ended when the door of mercy closed and the time of plagues started. The light that we received afterward is included in this four-part article series. In fact, this series is what has been given for the time of harvest. It is the blessing which Brother Ray spoke of in his article.

The call to come out of Babylon, which only the 144,000 have followed so far, now gets even louder as it is given by the 144,000 to all Christians in the world who still haven’t heard anything about the fourth angel and his message. Of such ones, the “thoughts and intents of the heart” are in harmony with God, even though they are still in Babylon. My friend John will show in his article that the plagues are developing in an unexpected way, so everything will come to a head at a culminating point. Until then, there is still time to hastily leave Babylon so that you might escape what has already been decided.

I promised to show you how sharp the sword of God is. As sad as this may sound on one side, it is that enjoyable on the other: the 144,000 are found and sealed and none are missing. We do not know where they are, how God has led them, and the details of how He in His wisdom will use them now, but at the moment it is not important. We will know at the right time, if it is His will. Praise God!

Praise ye the Lord. Sing unto the Lord a new song, [the song of the 144,000] and his praise in the congregation of saints. Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. [Jesus is crowned since the beginning of the plagues cycle!] Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp. For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation. Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand; To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the Lord. (Psalm 149:1-9)

That also means no one will be added to this small group of 144,000 anymore. That specific train has left the station, friends, especially for the SDA church which should have supplied the majority of the travelers on board and striven to be among the 144,000. But there is still hope, as explained before, for all those who genuinely didn't hear anything about the message of the fourth angel, and who didn't willingly reject it, but are now leaving Babylon knowing full well that it will cost them their earthly life. The inclination of their heart has God's approbation, and you will learn why in the next article.

For those who wake up when the literal fire from heaven comes over them and then still think they have a chance, we just have one more devastating quote from Ellen G. White, which hurts at least as deeply and painfully as the Bible verses that have already been quoted:

Then I saw Jesus lay off His priestly attire and clothe Himself with His most kingly robes. Upon His head were many crowns, a crown within a crown. Surrounded by the angelic host, He left heaven. The plagues were falling upon the inhabitants of the earth. Some were denouncing God and cursing Him. Others rushed to the people of God and begged to be taught how they might escape His judgments. But the saints had nothing for them. The last tear for sinners had been shed, the last agonizing prayer offered, the last burden borne, the last warning given. The sweet voice of mercy was no more to invite them. When the saints, and all heaven, were interested for their salvation, they had no interest for themselves. Life and death had been set before them. Many desired life, but made no effort to obtain it. They did not choose life, and now there was no atoning blood to cleanse the guilty, no compassionate Saviour to plead for them, and cry, “Spare, spare the sinner a little longer.” All heaven had united with Jesus, as they heard the fearful words, “It is done. It is finished.” The plan of salvation had been accomplished, but few had chosen to accept it. And as mercy’s sweet voice died away, fear and horror seized the wicked. With terrible distinctness they heard the words, “Too late! too late!”

Those who had not prized God’s Word were hurrying to and fro, wandering from sea to sea, and from the north to the east, to seek the Word of the Lord. Said the angel, “They shall not find it. There is a famine in the land; not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but for hearing the words of the Lord. What would they not give for one word of approval from God! but no, they must hunger and thirst on. Day after day have they slighted salvation, prizing earthly riches and earthly pleasure higher than any heavenly treasure or inducement. They have rejected Jesus and despised His saints. The filthy must remain filthy forever.”

Many of the wicked were greatly enraged as they suffered the effects of the plagues. It was a scene of fearful agony. Parents were bitterly reproaching their children, and children their parents, brothers their sisters, and sisters their brothers. Loud, wailing cries were heard in every direction, “It was you who kept me from receiving the truth which would have saved me from this awful hour.” The people turned upon their ministers with bitter hate and reproached them, saying, “You have not warned us. You told us that all the world was to be converted, and cried, Peace, peace, to quiet every fear that was aroused. You have not told us of this hour; and those who warned us of it you declared to be fanatics and evil men, who would ruin us.” But I saw that the ministers did not escape the wrath of God. Their suffering was tenfold greater than that of their people. {EW 281.1–282.1}

The Parable of the Wheat and the Tares

Wheat and tares mixedNow let us take a look at the well-known parable of the wheat and the tares, which Jesus presented to His disciples. Jesus explains in Matthew 13, starting from verse 24, that Satan scatters bad seed among the good seed, and in answer to the question of whether the workers should uproot the growing tares, Jesus gave the good advice to let them grow together until the time of harvest.

Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn. (Matthew 13:30)

The disciples did not understand the Lord’s parable immediately, so Jesus explained it again:

Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. (Matthew 13:36-43)

We can think of it the way that we already tried to describe in the article, The Tears of God. There is one last final test for each person, which will turn out either positively or negatively (without mercy). And that test will start with the elders, then go further into His church and continue outward. Don’t forget that, because we will find out later that the tares must first be gathered from God’s church and must be tied in bundles before the good wheat can be harvested with a sickle. We will even find out at which point in time it will happen. Please keep in mind that the phrase “weeping and gnashing of teeth” is directly related to the harvest and the fire or furnace, which in turn is a picture of the destruction of the wicked before Jesus comes again. We will encounter that phrase a few more times. Wonderful insights are hidden behind it.

Ellen G. White substantiated the understanding that the wheat and tares are talking about people in God’s (worldwide) church:

Christ’s servants are grieved as they see true and false believers mingled in the church. They long to do something to cleanse the church. Like the servants of the householder, they are ready to uproot the tares. But Christ says to them, “Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest.” {COL 71.2}

Time for you to decideIt should be noted that the long-awaited and hoped-for “cleansing of the church” does not in fact come to pass until mercy is no more. Please remember the sixth trumpet of the trumpet cycle, when we challenged the Seventh-day Adventist Church in conjunction with the whole Christian world to join us at Mount Carmel to see who God is really with. Did the fire already come down from heaven, and did God already fully execute the judgment of the wicked? No, but the cleansing process begins with the people showing whose side they are on, just as the priests of Baal sacrificed on their own altar and Elijah on another. The noisome and grievous sores of sin, described in the first plague, become visible and tangible. Everything comes to light! At the end of this article, you will have the horrible realization that what began in the sixth trumpet in the time of mercy will utterly break forth in the sixth plague without mercy.

Let’s take a brief look at the observation that Betelgeuse stands for conflict and separation in each cycle of the seven seals. We already explained in the Orion presentation that in 1914, the First World War began, and with it, a special test for God’s people: the question of whether we, as Christians, may participate in military service. With this question, God tested the loyalty of His people to the 6th commandment, “Thou shalt not kill.” Also, the Sabbath of the 4th commandment was made a test in a special way. It was clear that a soldier in military service would not be able to keep the Sabbath if this would conflict with the orders of his commanders. Ellen G. White was strictly against military service and stated so accordingly.

Because of these conflicts, the church was divided. Those who wanted to be faithful to their God, in spite of the perils of jail or death by their compatriots, were betrayed by their own brothers and sisters who chose to obey the laws of men over the laws of God. They were excluded from the church and committed to the authorities. Those who were faithful to Jesus, died the martyr’s death in those years of war, like their predecessors during the first cycle of the seals, who died in the time of Christian persecution by the Romans.

Thus, after this, there were two churches: The SDA Church, which fell more and more into apostasy, and those members who had been faithful to God, who had to reorganize themselves as the Seventh-day Adventist Reformation Movement after several unsuccessful attempts to reconcile with the mother church.

We mention this again here because it may well be that a schism will start to manifest in the third plague again, this time due to the current issues of dispute (women’s ordination, LGBT tolerance, etc.). In any case, the big issue is already simmering behind closed doors. It’s really just a matter of time before a schism manifests. So be vigilant, and watch what happens!

Christ has plainly taught that those who persist in open sin must be separated from the church, but He has not committed to us the work of judging character and motive. He knows our nature too well to entrust this work to us. Should we try to uproot from the church those whom we suppose to be spurious Christians, we should be sure to make mistakes. Often we regard as hopeless subjects the very ones whom Christ is drawing to Himself. Were we to deal with these souls according to our imperfect judgment, it would perhaps extinguish their last hope. Many who think themselves Christians will at last be found wanting. Many will be in heaven who their neighbors supposed would never enter there. Man judges from appearance, but God judges the heart. The tares and the wheat are to grow together until the harvest; and the harvest is the end of probationary time. {COL 71.3}

The wave of the last testHere we even get a hint that the harvest must be after the END of mercy. Anyone who has read our latest articles knows that the investigative judgment is already finished and that the time of mercy ended. Now we are in the time of the plagues, so we can expect that the Lord will reveal even more about His plague clock in Orion. Some who recognize the voice of God will fall on their knees in amazement and gratitude to thank God for this article, but for the majority of people, it will be nothing more than another peal of thunder. Do you see how the chaff is separated from the wheat and how your faith gets tested? The binding of the wicked into bundles has already begun, and in the Tears of God article, we anticipated how that process will spread over the whole world.

The Weeping and Gnashing of Teeth

Remember, among those who are destined for the fire of God, there will be “weeping and gnashing of teeth!” Have you ever searched the Bible for that exact phrase to see if there is more light for this point in time? The expression is found exactly seven times in the original language (the Strong’s numbers are G2805 for weeping/wailing and G1030 for gnashing). It should give us reason for reflection when God uses His number of perfection for it.

Peter had come to Christ with the question, “How oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?” The rabbis limited the exercise of forgiveness to three offenses. Peter, carrying out, as he supposed, the teaching of Christ, thought to extend it to seven, the number signifying perfection. But Christ taught that we are never to become weary of forgiving. Not “Until seven times,” He said, “but, Until seventy times seven.” {COL 243.1}

Let us briefly consider each of the verses where the phrase appears and see what God wants to show us in relation to the harvest and the consuming fire. We already discussed one of the parables in the previous section.

The next story is about the centurion of Capernaum who showed great faith. That is exactly what Jesus asks for and wants to see! Will He find faith when He comes?

When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour. (Matthew 8:10-13)

Fear and crying in the darknessAt that time, Jesus was speaking about His people, the Jews. They did not recognize Him, but they rejected Him. And Jesus cast them out. They had received several invitations by the grace of God, but they refused each one of them. The weeping and gnashing of teeth stood for their eternal death, just as for the Seventh-day Adventist Church at the Second Coming of Jesus, who persistently refused the voice and message of God from Orion. On the heights of Mt. Carmel, they chose to make their sacrifice on the wrong altar, and that showed once again, that God’s door of mercy toward them had already closed. A short time later, on October 17/18, 2015, the time of mercy for the rest of the world also ended, and the Holy Spirit finished His sealing of the righteous among mankind. It looks as if the gentile centurion, who showed more faith than the elect people, stands for those sheep from the other folds who are found worthy.

The centurion’s servant was healed at the same hour, the Bible says. Remember that, because in the next article you will learn more about the hour in which Jesus will reward the faithful, transforming the living faithful and resurrecting the righteous dead.

In the next parable, Jesus speaks of a king who prepares the wedding for his son and invites guests who do not want to come. That corresponds to the invitation to the Jews when Jesus lived among them, and who should have accepted Him. Then again, there was an invitation in the period after they nailed Jesus to the cross, and God uses the image of the sacrifice which was prepared, a reference to Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. But the Jewish people still did not want to come to the wedding, and God threw them into outer darkness where there was “weeping and gnashing of teeth,” as we already learned from the previous event. But in His mercy, God made a third invitation (the Christian era) and, lo and behold, the hall was filled.

And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen. (Matthew 22:11-14)

The binding after the investigative judgementThe king’s visiting with the guests corresponds to the investigative judgment of the dead (October 22, 1844 – October 27, 2012) and of the living (May 6, 2012 – October 17/18, 2015). An angel (William Miller) announced to the world the dawn of the “hour of the judgment” (Revelation 14:6-7), and now we see those verses being completed during the period of the “second Miller”. That judgment is finished, and that means the time of mercy has ended, and each case has been decided before God. Either the Holy Spirit put His mark on your forehead, or not. Either the inclination of your heart is correct, or not. Either you used the time of preparation effectively, or not. Orion’s message was given to the SDA Church as a message of repentance. Jesus wanted to cleanse and whiten the church’s clothes, but they either did not recognize His voice or they consciously rejected it. However, God visited not only the SDA Church in the judgment of the living, but all professing Christians of all denominations.

Don’t forget that the “weeping and gnashing of teeth” has something to do with fire and burning and darkness. These bundles—bound hand and foot—will burn, and later you will learn when it will be. Unfortunately, few have made their election sure.

The fourth instance where this phrase occurs is the parable of the drag net.

Sorting the fish

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord. Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old. (Matthew 13:47-52)

It should be clear that the fish represent people who profess to have accepted Christ, like the guests at the wedding hall in the previous parable. But again, the fish must be sorted to separate the good from the foul. If something is rotten, then it stinks like a bad ulcer. The flesh is rotting, and thus it points to the time of plagues, for the first plague describes exactly that. It is not to be understood only literally, but spiritually. It stands especially for sin. Sin gets revealed. Everyone must decide which side he is fighting for. There is nothing hidden that will not come to light. Did you notice that the imagery of the ulcer comes back again and again? The ulcer does not look good. It hurts, and the one who has it cries. It smells bad. Simply put, it comes to the forefront of the senses in every way. What is described here is a picture of the biblical leprosy, and the result of the condition was exclusion from family and the general public, and banishment to a remote place. I would advise you to take all of these points very seriously, because the fun is over.

It is also interesting that Jesus explicitly asked His disciples whether they understood it. It was the affirmative answer of “Yea, Lord” that resulted in His identifying the scribes as householders. Where are the “wise” of Daniel 12 who shine like the stars and can decipher the oath in the same chapter, at the end of time? Where are the householders, who are awake and aware of the time?

That transitions into the fifth picture that Jesus wants to show us:

A watchful householder

Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 24:42-51)

God already revealed the time of the Second Coming of Jesus when He poured out the latter rain message. In today’s frame of reference, we do not have to speak of a possible knowledge of the time at some point in the future, as was necessary almost 2000 years ago. Today, we can say that the wise and faithful scribes—the householders of this time—can definitely KNOW the hour if they accept the Orion message. That is the meat in due season! Many have rejected this present-truth food, like how they left 12 or 7 baskets full of bread, in the feeding of the five thousand Jews and four thousand gentiles, respectively, when Jesus invited them to have supper with Him. Oh, but if you would only show more interest! Those stories—including the intervening encounter with the Lord walking to the disciples on water—could fill an article of their own! You can deduce what time we are in from those stories, too.

Householders who have accepted the Orion message will no longer kill time with unimportant things, because they will be anticipating the coming of the Lord. They know the hour. Do you know it too?

It is interesting that precisely this passage is often used to supposedly prove that no one can know the time of the coming of Jesus. To the contrary, it shows us the polar opposite today, just as Revelation 3:3 says that the watchful people KNOW the hour. Furthermore, Jesus’ coming as a thief in the night does not mean He will come quietly, for every eye shall see Him. Rather, He points out the fact that many, having not been vigilant, will be unprepared and therefore they will not be expecting Him.

We will draw on these verses again in the next article when we pursue the question of when this hour that ye know not of, will be!

Our sixth passage in the Bible is about the parable of the talents. Everyone knows that every human being has received from God talents and abilities which should not be buried and should not be allowed to wither. Instead, we should use our talents for the success of God’s plans of salvation and redemption.

Separating the sheep from the goats

For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. (Matthew 25:29-33)

Again, we can see that these verses are especially applicable to the SDA Church, because it received great light and God blessed them abundantly for a long time. But they buried the gift of the light of the fourth angel (the message of the latter rain), so whatever they did have, was taken away. The third angel’s message ends with the closing of the door of mercy, and with the beginning of the plagues, because it was a warning about the plagues. Since the plagues have begun, that church has nothing more to warn about. It should have joined the fourth angel to sound the loud cry, but it did not want to. Meanwhile, the rest of the Christian world considers itself rich like Laodicea, although you can rightly regard most Christian people as merely nominal or traditional Christians who are still in Babylon. Do you really think that such people will receive the blessings of God, or will they stand on the side of the goats?

It gets more and more interesting, because here a time is described when Jesus will really and literally come with all the angels. That means that these verses must speak about the time after closing of the door of mercy, or in other words, the time of the plagues. It is even possible to find out the time more precisely; the time when Jesus will begin His journey from Orion to Earth can also be biblically proven now. That will be a topic for the next article...

It is noteworthy that the symbol for the just is a sheep or a lamb, and it is easy to identify them as the yet-to-be-called-out ones who have put on the character of Jesus. They stand at the right hand of the Lord. Have you ever taken a look at the plague clock to see where October 24, 2016 would be? The coming of Jesus would fall within the segment that stretches from the seventh plague to the throne line at Jesus’ right hand, where He sets the sheep to take with Him when He comes again! So then, shouldn’t there also be a time when the goats, who are perishing in the fire with weeping and gnashing of teeth, are set on the left side? You will be amazed at what God has revealed and how the plague cycle can be fully confirmed by using the Bible alone. All of these things are little hints that should strengthen our faith more and more.

And finally, we come to the seventh place in the Bible that refers to weeping and gnashing of teeth.

And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem. Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out. And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God. And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last. (Luke 13:22-30)

Narrow doorThese verses are clearly talking about the closing of the door of mercy, saying that you must go through a narrow gate beforehand, but only a few will succeed. The narrow gate is the narrow way, the one truth that can only come from Jesus. The message (from Orion) of the Holy Spirit, who enlightens the whole world with His glory, should have guided the hearts of Christians along the narrow path. True revival and reformation would have been the result, so that the Holy Spirit could have sealed them. All those who thought they were following Jesus, but who were found wanting, will be weeping and wailing and gnashing their teeth. They will be raised after the 1000-year judgment in heaven and will then see themselves standing outside of the Holy City. Then comes the last and all-evil-consuming fire after Satan’s last attack against the Holy City with all of the unjust. Not a hint of sin will remain any longer. How many nominal Christians will have to experience that, just because they refused to accept God’s final message? Will you find yourself in utter darkness too?

Can you believe how much information is packed in these seven passages? Do you see how the Holy Spirit always brings things old and new and sheds new light on them? Do you see how important it is to know the time now? If so, then things will really get exciting now...

The Harvest and the Vintage

We find a very similar picture of the harvest in Revelation 14. Many Adventists know this chapter, because it contains the three angels’ messages. But, as mentioned earlier, the warning of the third angel (Revelation 14:9) has become obsolete since the door of mercy has already closed and the time of the plagues has dawned. Anyone who is baptized into or stays in that church as of October 17/18, 2015, and thus accepts or supports the falsified teachings of the SDA organization, is unfortunately lost. They are missing the light of the fourth angel of Revelation 18, which was described by Ellen G. White as follows:

I saw angels hurrying to and fro in heaven, descending to the earth, and again ascending to heaven, preparing for the fulfillment of some important event. Then I saw another mighty angel commissioned to descend to the earth, to unite his voice with the third angel, and give power and force to his message. Great power and glory were imparted to the angel, and as he descended, the earth was lightened with his glory. The light which attended this angel penetrated everywhere, as he cried mightily, with a strong voice, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.” The message of the fall of Babylon, as given by the second angel, is repeated, with the additional mention of the corruptions which have been entering the churches since 1844. The work of this angel comes in at the right time to join in the last great work of the third angel’s message as it swells to a loud cry. And the people of God are thus prepared to stand in the hour of temptation, which they are soon to meet. I saw a great light resting upon them, and they united to fearlessly proclaim the third angel’s message.

Angels were sent to aid the mighty angel from heaven, and I heard voices which seemed to sound everywhere, “Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.” This message seemed to be an addition to the third message, joining it as the midnight cry joined the second angel’s message in 1844. The glory of God rested upon the patient, waiting saints, and they fearlessly gave the last solemn warning, proclaiming the fall of Babylon and calling upon God’s people to come out of her that they might escape her fearful doom. {EW 277.1–2}

We already explained in several articles that the SDA organization has become part of Babylon, so you should understand why a baptism into this church now involves eternal death. It didn’t repent when there was time for repentance. Have you considered that it should have been careful not to reject the fourth angel, because without his message it is caught unprepared in the hour of temptation, just as Revelation 3:10 warned? You will be amazed when you read when that hour will be in the next article. It will surely come, because the preparations for it have already been made.

It is unfortunate that it has turned out like it has. Adventists should have noticed that the oft-quoted 14th chapter of Revelation does not end with the message of the third angel. Let us look at verses 14 to 20 now, and consider what they could mean today; we have certainly recognized from the previous section that the time of harvest has come.

And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. (Revelation 14:14)

Horsehead Nebula in OrionThose who have already read the Orion message know exactly which white cloud the Bible is talking about here. It is represented by the Horsehead Nebula, and it should be clear from the description of the person who has taken a seat on it that it is our Lord Jesus-Alnitak. Now perhaps the question will arise: What is it that shows us that Jesus is no longer in the sanctuary interceding for us so that we could still have the mercy of God the Father? The answer is: Does a high priest really wear a golden crown, or does that part of his attire correspond to that of a king? It is well known that after closing the door of mercy, Jesus lays aside His priestly garments, and puts on His royal robe. Therefore, we know for sure that these verses about the time of harvest are dealing with the time after the closing of the door of mercy. The sickle in his right hand, as we may learn from Ellen G. White,[11] is a reference to the time when the ripe wheat, which corresponds to the yet-to-be-found righteous ones, is finally taken away from this earth. Remember what I mentioned earlier, that the right hand corresponds to the segment between Saiph and the throne line, when Jesus will return and finally receive all the redeemed up into the white cloud to take them on the journey to the Orion Nebula? We will prove it in the next article, just from the Bible. Is it clear now why He has the sickle in His right hand? Is it clear why “the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly”?[12]

What we have learned so far is that Jesus has left the heavenly temple as king and is now waiting on the white cloud until...

And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time [Strong’s: hour] is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. (Revelation 14:15)

King with the sickle on the white cloudIt is getting interesting now. Another angel comes into the picture. This implies that the “one” from before was also an angel. Please note that Jesus is sometimes called “Michael the archangel.” So it is right to say that this picture is already talking about two angels: even Jesus Himself, and another angel who comes forth from the temple. Don’t forget that he comes from the temple, because not all of the angels that we will see in following verses will come from the temple.

In this scene, it looks as if Jesus is waiting for the second angel to cry out with the command signaling the time to reap. Interestingly, here again is the precise time of the hour, like in the Bible verses we looked at earlier.

And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped. (Revelation 14:16)

It is clear that the first angel, Jesus Christ Himself or the 144,000 in His place, start harvesting the ripe grain (the righteous ones who will be called out by the 144,000) after the cry of the second angel. So if we were to know when this communication takes place in heaven, then we could also know when this process would begin. Well, does that give you any ideas?

It would be legitimate to inquire at this point whether the Orion message uses angels anywhere to represent clock hands that indicate the time...

Plague Clock in OrionWhat would it mean if the description here in Revelation 14 exactly matches the plague cycle, and what if God wants to give us a deeper understanding of the time of the plagues? Let’s take a look at the picture to the right.

Even though there are seven plague angels, the construction plan for the Clock of God, as described in Revelation 4, describes four special “living creatures” (beasts) or angels to symbolize the four outer stars of Orion. Let us try to quickly recap what we learned in the context of the chart. Saiph is the “white horse” star and corresponds to the first angel, Jesus Christ. On October 17/18, 2015, Jesus threw down the censer in the Most Holy Place, ended the intercessory service and closed the door of mercy for mankind. He changed His robes and on October 25, 2015, He took His place on the white cloud, as it was expressed in verse 14 of chapter 14.

Next, the second angel, represented by Betelgeuse, comes into play. He cries to the first angel (Jesus), saying that the harvest is ripe and that He should thrust in the sickle and reap the earth. Now we see the date for when Jesus begins to harvest the “ripe, prepared but yet-uninformed righteous ones”: from March 9, 2016 on.

But now we must consider Matthew 13:30 again, since it states that the bundling of the tares must take place before the wheat harvest begins. What we studied regarding the seven events in the previous section is clear now. From the first to the third plague, the tares are bundled. It begins with the sanctuary and continues throughout the world. Each one openly acknowledges which side he is on. It is the final test without mercy, which everyone in the harvest must pass. If Ted Wilson is publishing photos from the General Conference’s annual Christmas party, showing off a costume from Medellín, Colombia, which is one of the Jesuit centers in Latin America,[13] or if any of his employees are wearing Christmas reindeer costumes,[14] or Christmas trees are flaunted in the background, and not for the simple purpose of receiving offerings as Ellen G. White allowed for,[15] then polarization is the result, as part of the bundling process that we are talking about. If people welcome the Satan’s Year of Divine Mercy and walk through the open door[16] of any cathedral, they are adding themselves to the bundles of tares. If people still praise the false prophets and preachers and continue to stuff their pockets with money,[17] then they are being bundled together with them. If people are happy about the canonization of “Mother Theresa”[18] because they have another saint they can bring their prayers to, then they are being bundled with the idolaters. If people still think that anything and everything has to be tolerated, and that homosexuality[19] is a step in the direction of modernization and is good, then they are bundling themselves with the unclean.

Do you understand? We are already in the time of the bundling of the tares, while Jesus is sitting on the white cloud waiting for the “command to harvest,” which is nothing other than the report that the bundling of the tares is complete. Those who don’t pass the final test that is brought to them will be uprooted forever, and later thrown into the fire, as we have already studied. On the one hand, they will be thrown into the fire of literal plagues that nobody will survive except the 144,000, but then again, on the other hand, after the thousand-year judgment of all the wicked from the beginning of time, Jesus will bring the last, all-consuming fire upon them. Their name will be blotted out, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

One question is still unanswered: When will the earth be completely harvested, as it says in verse 16? Please be patient, and soon we will discover more. Don’t you think that the light of God, which He sends in due season, is perfect and harmonious? Let us sit down and continue our study to see what Revelation 14 still has in store for us.

And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. (Revelation 14:17)

This verse tells us that a third angel comes too, which also comes from the temple. Interestingly, he also has a sickle. We really need to ask the question of whether this angel intends to compete with our Lord Jesus. By this time, the tares have already been plucked, bundled and are ready for the fire. Let’s read on...

And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. (Revelation 14:18)

Now it gets really interesting. There is a lot going on in heaven, don’t you think? A fourth angel comes on the scene—this time from the altar—with power over fire. Don’t forget that! We will talk about that in a moment.

This fourth angel tells the third angel with the sickle that he should cut the grapes of the earth. So here we see a parallel to the first two angels, because the third angel also waits for the fourth angel to give him the signal to begin harvesting the grapes. Please consider the chart again. Bellatrix symbolizes the third angel, which becomes “visible” on April 22, 2016. In other words, he comes out of the temple, but he has to wait until Rigel gives him the command to cut the grapes on August 1, 2016.

Let’s keep reading to see what happens next:

And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs. (Revelation 14:19-20)

The harvest of the Babylonian grapesUh oh, now it is unpleasant! When the fourth angel calls out to the third angel (August 1, 2016) that he should begin to cut, then the grapes will be thrown into the winepress of the wrath of God. This makes it very clear that the true wrath of God will not come before August 1, 2016, but should begin after that. Furthermore, the third angel must first do his job of filling the winepress from the beginning of August 2016 onward. Thus, it looks as if the sixth plague is the filling of the winepress. That means the full wrath of God must be the seventh plague, where the wine is trodden (read Revelation 19:10-16). There is perfect confirmation for this, which we will present to you in the next article!

Now it would also make sense to conclude that the first angel, Jesus, must complete the harvest of the good wheat by the sixth plague. One group will be blessed at that time, and for the other it will be a bloodbath.

The fact that the wine is trodden outside the city is yet another strong indication that the great multitude of righteous ones will actually be found and collected up until the beginning of the sixth plague. They are the ones who, together with the 144,000, will soon enter into the Holy City. In the eyes of God, they will be fully accounted for in the “heavenly inventory” beginning on August 1, 2016, since they will have been gathered into “the barn” by that time.

Now, someone might come along and say that Jesus is the vine, so how can it be that the grapes stand for something bad, a group who suffers the wrath of God? Let us read what Jesus Himself says about it:

I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. (John 15:1-6)

That sheds light on the matter and explains why there must be two angels with sickles. Namely, there is a true vine, and by implication there must also be a false vine. The grapes that are connected with Jesus and bring forth good fruit are the 144,000 who already left Babylon and are cleaned and purified. Their fruits—their character—is similar to that of Christ. They are the ones who are connected to Jesus and have accepted His message from Orion. Those are the ones who testify for the Father! But those who hear the loud cry of the 144,000 in the time of plagues will also bring their good fruits.

The others who had once grown on the true vine, Jesus, but bore bad fruit, are comparable to the tares, which are currently being bundled. Such rotten fruit and withered branches will be thrown into the fire right along with the other bundles of tares.

Where is the false vine, whose grapes the third angel should cut with the sickle and gather for the wrath of God? Is there a false vine on this earth, from whose grapes wine is also made? Don’t you know who the mother of all false wine is, which all nations drink their false doctrines from?

And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. (Revelation 17:1-5)

Oh, dear Catholics, Protestant and charismatic religious leaders, even you heads of the Eastern religions, you kings and presidents of the world, you who have elected this “woman” as your head... How long will it be till you understand who this really is? Is it so hard to accept that there is only one religious system where purple and scarlet are worn and its churches are full of pomp and where there is drinking from a golden goblet? Now do you know which plague angel describes the throne of the beast exactly? Now do you recognize the difference between the cup that Brother Robert described and that of Pope Francis?

The pope's golden chalice, colors of the cardinals and bishops

Especially in these days, the world has accepted the representative of this church as their leader. All countries in the world accepted the UN climate agreement under the motivation of Pope Francis. He has even personally intervened to prevent the failure of the contract.[20] Can’t you see through him yet? He is the false Christ, Lucifer, and Satan himself as the angel of light.

He is definitely the wrong vine! Satan imitates God however he can, and you have chosen him as your king. Do you realize that the hour (Revelation 17:12) in which he will reign in full force is coming soon!? It is the “hour of temptation,” which most of you will not be protected from (the same hour that Revelation 3:10 mentions). Would you like to know when it will be?

May I ask you a question? Why did Jesus say in Matthew 7:15-23, and in Luke, that it is not possible to gather grapes from a thorn bush?

For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. (Luke 6:43-45)

Have you thought about what the parable of Jotham means? We already touched on it in the article Trumpets with a Certain Sound. The trees, symbolizing the believers, finally ask the bramble if he wants to be king over them.

And when they told it to Jotham, he went and stood in the top of mount Gerizim, and lifted up his voice, and cried, and said unto them, Hearken unto me, ye men of Shechem, that God may hearken unto you. The trees went forth on a time to anoint a king over them; and they said unto the olive tree, Reign thou over us. But the olive tree said unto them, Should I leave my fatness, wherewith by me they honour God and man, and go to be promoted over the trees? And the trees said to the fig tree, Come thou, and reign over us. But the fig tree said unto them, Should I forsake my sweetness, and my good fruit, and go to be promoted over the trees? Then said the trees unto the vine, Come thou, and reign over us. And the vine said unto them, Should I leave my wine, which cheereth God and man, and go to be promoted over the trees? Then said all the trees unto the bramble, Come thou, and reign over us. And the bramble said unto the trees, If in truth ye anoint me king over you, then come and put your trust in my shadow: and if not, let fire come out of the bramble, and devour the cedars of Lebanon. (Judges 9:7-15)

I hope you know now who offers the false wine—meaning false doctrines—to the world, and whom you have chosen!

In this context, I can only counsel you to read Jeremiah 25, beginning with verse 12, so there is no longer any doubt that Babylon will surely be destroyed. Interestingly, the UN was also celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2015. We have truly come to the last months and days of this world, although most people still believe that the time of mercy is still ongoing, and that Jesus is still sitting back and watching the bad happenings on the earth.

Everyone who is not growing on the true vine and bearing good fruit will receive the full wrath of God. In any case, it is clear now that blood will begin to flow in the sixth plague, because even if you are careful in the grape harvest, some grapes will be crushed, and the fuller the winepress gets, the more grapes will be crushed under the additional weight. But will the angel with the sickle really be careful with the grapes when he knows that they are destined for the wrath of God? Surely not.

We still need to pursue the clue as to why the fourth angel (Rigel) is the only one that comes from the altar, and what it means that he has power over fire. There is a fitting passage from the Bible in the book of Ezekiel, “our” book, which tells us what is happening with the angel of the fire. Please remember that we have often referred to Ezekiel 9, where the Holy Spirit marks the sincere people and is then followed by five other “men” who accomplish a terrible slaughtering of those who were not marked. At the end of the trumpet cycle, the Holy Spirit brought the message to heaven that the marking was complete, which was the closing of the door of mercy for humanity. But the trumpet cycle took place during the time of mercy, and Jesus interposed with His blood four times and intervened four-times (crying “Hold!”) so that the threatening destruction would be deferred to the next cycle. The plague cycle is the only cycle left, and we are already in it. There are no other possibilities! Do you get it? The end of the world is here!

In the very next chapter of Ezekiel, we find the following:

Then I looked, and, behold, in the firmament that was above the head of the cherubims there appeared over them as it were a sapphire stone, as the appearance of the likeness of a throne. And he spake unto the man clothed with linen, and said, Go in between the wheels, even under the cherub, and fill thine hand with coals of fire from between the cherubims, and scatter them over the city. And he went in in my sight. Now the cherubims stood on the right side of the house, when the man went in; and the cloud filled the inner court. Then the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the Lord’s glory. And the sound of the cherubims’ wings was heard even to the outer court, as the voice of the Almighty God when he speaketh. And it came to pass, that when he had commanded the man clothed with linen, saying, Take fire from between the wheels, from between the cherubims; then he went in, and stood beside the wheels. And one cherub stretched forth his hand from between the cherubims unto the fire that was between the cherubims, and took thereof, and put it into the hands of him that was clothed with linen: who took it, and went out. And there appeared in the cherubims the form of a man’s hand under their wings. (Ezekiel 10:1-8)

In the Orion presentation, we explained exactly what these wheels are, and how this passage coincides with Revelation 4 and 5 and Ezekiel 1. Those who do not know those things are encouraged to re-read it, because it is basic knowledge that is needed just to understand the Clock of God in Orion. But for the purposes of continuing with this study, all you need to know is that the four outer stars of Orion together constitute the wheels of the clock, and in their midst is the temple of God with the altar—the three belt stars, together with the Orion Nebula.

The sound of the cherubim, which are the four hands of the clock (or pointer stars), correspond to the voice of God Almighty when He speaks. Do you remember that Ellen G. White said in her first vision that God would proclaim the time when He would pour out the Holy Spirit in the latter rain?[21] The Almighty did just that when He gave the understanding of His clock to one man who was permitted to see it and read it: John Scotram, the second Miller. No, it was not to Ted Wilson that God gave the understanding of the time, nor anyone from the BRI (Biblical Research Institute). It was not even Walter Veith or Steven Bohr. Neither was it “Uncle” David Gates or Doug Batchelor. It was not even Pastor Andrew Henriques, nor Hugo Gambetta, neither Kenneth Copeland, Rick Warren, Joel Osten, Benny Hin, nor Billy Graham, nor any other “star” in the religious world. It is high time that you yet-to-be-found righteous ones out there in the world finally recognize and accept the voice of God!

Can you identify the participants in this vision? Let’s not get confused. The four hands of the clock of God which show us the time when something has to happen are one thing, but the real Persons who are holding judgment are God the Father, Jesus Christ who takes care of the wheat harvest, and the Holy Spirit who harvests the grapes. It is God the Father Himself who commands the Holy Spirit, the man with the linen clothes, to “go inside” the temple and take coals and scatter them over the city. One cherub stretched out his hand, which means that a clock hand is “pointing” to a date. He takes burning coals from the altar and puts them in the hand of the Holy Spirit, who then “goes” out of the temple to do His duty. So this scene points to exactly August 1, 2016, when the fourth angel (a cherub) puts the fire into the hand of the third angel (the Holy Spirit). Then the work which the Holy Spirit has to do becomes “visible”. Fascinating! What do you suppose is going to happen!?

Did you notice that the inner court and temple was filled with the cloud? That is immediately reminiscent of Revelation 15:8, where the temple is also filled with smoke from the glory of God. We know that it represents the time of the plagues, which we are living in. This also verifies where the Holy Spirit presently is, from a biblical perspective... Yes, He withdrew completely from the earth on October 17/18, 2015 after marking the 144,000 according to Ezekiel 9. The little flock is now subsisting on the 372 daily portions of “Holy Spirit” that He left for them especially for this time without intercession.

Here is a brief overview, so you can review what we already covered in our study thus far:

Phases of the harvest

So, in Ezekiel 10, we have now found the angel who keeps the burning coals in his hands. Have you read what he should do with them? “Fill thine hand with coals of fire from between the cherubims, and scatter them over the city!” What will happen on August 1, 2016, when the third angel (the Holy Spirit) scatters His glowing coals over the city of Babylon? What have we warned you about so often, which God has delayed so long? Why did Ellen G. White especially say that we should study the plagues? Is a picture really necessary to imagine flying coals?


Yes, certainly, these are the fireballs! Did you hear? The fireballs!

How much biblical derivation do you still need to finally wake up and leave Babylon? Isn’t this cry loud enough yet? This is the cutting of the grapes from Babylon and the filling of the winepress. It is the largest and most horrible event before the full wrath of God breaks out and the winepress is trodden. This is the event that was prophesied for the very hour:

And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. (Revelation 9:13-16)

Now do you see how the sixth trumpet is connected to the sixth plague? The loosing of the four winds began with the end of mercy or the first plague, and this process will be completed on August 1, 2016 with the loosing of the fourth angel, when the last restriction on the four winds will be released. When speaking of “the hour” that corresponds to the sixth trumpet or second woe, we must also look at this verse for the sake of completion:

And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly. (Revelation 11:13-14)

We can well imagine that a “fireball hail” would result in a massive earthquake. Nevertheless, the earthquake when Jesus opens the graves of the righteous dead will be the largest earthquake by far that has ever shaken the earth. We must not confuse the two. But still, what should we expect from this terrible judgment of God in the sixth plague? Ellen G. White saw the following in two different visions:

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

I saw an immense ball of fire fall among some beautiful mansions, causing their instant destruction. I heard someone say: “We knew that the judgments of God were coming upon the earth, but we did not know that they would come so soon.” Others, with agonized voices, said: “You knew! Why then did you not tell us? We did not know.”—Testimonies for the Church 9:28 (1909). {LDE 24.3–25.1}

This is still not talking about the complete destruction of the Earth, but it is an “indescribable” global disaster that we are dealing with. Do you see how terrible the gathering of the Babylonian grapes will be? And now you know when the bundles of tares, which are now being bound together, will catch fire! Listen up, Adventists! This is especially for you! And because we know that you will then turn to your pastors with great accusations against them, we tell you beforehand so you might at least believe it when it happens. There will come a time when you will fall down before the 144,000 and admit that we had the truth.[22]

See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. (Hebrews 12:25-27)

Many have rejected His voice from heaven (from Orion) and have thereby rejected the Holy Spirit. That is the unpardonable sin against the Holy Ghost, especially now that the door of mercy is closed and the Holy Spirit has withdrawn from the earth.

For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. (Hebrews 10:30-31)

God Himself will fight in that time for the sheep at the right hand of the Lord (the area between Saiph and the throne line) and they will be safe and secure and concealed in His right hand, but it will be a terrible ordeal for the goats, the tares and false grapes, when they fall into His hands.

Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. (Joel 3:13)

One thing is more than sure: Jesus won’t come in 2019, as some false prophets say. Not even in 2031 or any other time in the distant future. He will come on time on October 24, 2016 as the clock of God has been showing for years. Do you believe it too? Then leave Babylon quickly and endure the coming persecution with us.[23]

Hopefully the shock which you received today penetrated deep and will keep you awake. I’ll finish my article with a verse that will be the main theme of the next and final article of my friend John Scotram. Symbolic grapes are being trodden in the picture, but soon it will be literal blood!

And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs. (Revelation 14:20)

And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Revelation 7:4 – And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. (God in His wisdom left it unclear whether this is a purely symbolic or literal number. There is a reason for that. He leaves open the possibilities! There could actually be 144,000 firstfruits found, but also far more or far less. In that case, the multiplier of 1000 would mean “many” and the 12 x 12 would mean those who kept the two covenants, namely the great multitude. At the end we will know how many really were among the 144,000, but there is biblical evidence that it will be far less than the number 144,000 suggests.)
