The Last Countdown

Bible study

This website is intended for all Christians who still want to take God’s word seriously and keep His commandments (including the fourth). Readers who have not heard of the “sanctuary doctrine” or the “true seventh-day Sabbath” will be overwhelmed with the topics discussed here. Such readers should first acquire the necessary basics from other websites that deal with those issues, but time is running out!

The light of the fourth angel was given by the Holy Spirit in two stages, which we call the first and second time proclamations, in a period of a little over seven years. It is to gather the last of God’s sheep and empower them as the 144,000 to testify for the Father during a terrible time. Since Daniel 12:3 speaks of them as “teachers” or “wise,” they must be people who have knowledge that goes beyond the average level of a nominal Christian. That is how it should be, because these should be men who pass through the plagues without sin and without an intercessor, and still turn many to righteousness. That is why they will not taste death: they offer a special sacrifice.

This message goes far beyond the scope of a pure time message. It doesn’t include time calculations for the sole purpose of finding out when Jesus will return! God, who is time, and not only love, has given us clocks whose hands point to doctrines that are important in a time when world history is coming to its end, where very little time remains. Each date is a teaching from Jesus Christ, which He wants to especially highlight right now. Notwithstanding, He also makes it clear that time is running out and it is urgent that this new light is studied intensively.

Since clocks are known to display a finite period of time as a repeating cycle, it is safe to assume that Jesus will return at the end of one such round of the clock, which we call an Orion cycle. That is why there have been and still are various countdowns for which this site is named. These cycles are divided into smaller periods by divine clock hands, which point to events which are to explain what in God’s eyes are sins in the church and/or the world, false doctrines, or pillars of faith. Especially when it comes to the cycles of the seven seals, the trumpets, or the plagues of Revelation, we can find out what God wants to tell us at each “hour” through the Bible texts.

Jesus wanted to return on October 23, 2016. He chose His people, the Seventh-day Adventist Church, over 170 years ago to prepare the way. They were supposed to come in the spirit and power of Elijah to herald the day of wrath and the second advent of the Son of man. The third angel’s message of Revelation 14, warning of the plagues and the mark of the beast (Sunday sacredness and same-sex marriage), was supposed to swell to the loud cry of the angel of Revelation 18 through the addition of this message of the fourth angel. However, 20 million Adventists, like the Jews before them, could not recognize Jesus when He stood right in front of them (this time in Orion). They rejected His words and teachings. They were too proud to accept new light that included the divine reprimand to correct their behavior. They have been calling themselves “Laodicea” for a long time and seem to have overlooked the fact that the “lukewarm” will all be spewed out by God. The work will now be finished only by the remnant of the remnant, those who are left, the true Seventh-day Adventists who fear God and not man-made laws that are against God.

home wave The first time proclamation wave was from 2010 to the autumn of 2016, and in our preaching of what we were learning from God, we were following a divine plan that would have come true if the Seventh-day Adventist Church had accepted the light they were given. Jesus would have liked to come back at the end of that proclamation period, but His coming would have meant that almost all people would have had to die, like in the days of Noah, since humanity was not prepared for the coming of Jesus in the way God intended. The doctrines and rules of conduct that are represented in this message were still not delivered to the people loudly enough to fit them to stand before the Eternal Judge.

Therefore, shortly before the potential coming of Jesus, we asked the Father to hold back His Son for a short while so that many more might yet be saved during that short extension. We made the sacrifice to request the deferral of our own imminent rapture, and later we found that that official statement was what finally made us the church of Philadelphia to God the Father.

Then came the second time proclamation wave, which was so strong that we had to start a new website, White Cloud Farm, to contain all the new knowledge, although it cannot be fully understood without the foundational knowledge that was developed in the first time proclamation. The LastCountdown study website remains the source of the knowledge that a nominal Christian needs in order to grow into the full stature of Christ and thus be able to stand before God.

There are several ways that today’s newcomer can approach the study: by reading all the articles in subject-wise chronological order, which amounts to about 3000 letter-sized pages, or the non-chronological way, whereby just the most important foundations are studied. Since time is very limited and the last of the 144,000 must be sealed by May 20, 2020, we recommend the non-chronological method, which is explained below.

Links and Footnotes

All the articles are generously marked with cross-referencing links and footnotes. A person should follow the links immediately if a term or concept is unclear. Usually the linked article contains the corresponding explanation or the foundation for the understanding. Footnote links are also there to be read, as they often contain important comments to aid understanding, but which would have been disruptive to the flow if included directly in the text.

Subject-wise Chronological Study Method

Subject-wise Chronological Study Method The content of this LastCountdown website is the first wave of God’s time proclamation. The articles in the main sections (not those under the “Important” menu) were published between January 23, 2010 and August 16, 2016 and house all of the basic teachings needed to understand the further second time proclamation, which has its own website as of November 22, 2016: White Cloud Farm.

However, before studying the main sections, we recommend reading all the short articles under “Important” once, to get an overview and to understand that the light of the fourth angel has grown and has had to be revised occasionally. Because of the failure of the Adventists, God’s original schedule took on a new structure which, interestingly enough, finally matches the chiastic structure of the Bible, which is the written format of the book of Revelation as well as the Bible as a whole.

The Last Countdown basically consists of four main sections which can be worked through in the order of the menu items at the top. This method leads to a deep understanding of the teachings, but also takes a long time. The articles in each section build on each other, but there are cross-references between the sections, and the sequence is often not strictly chronological because the subject matter demanded otherwise. Some insights came later and had to be classified in the appropriate section.

If you study thematically, you should start with the Clock of God in Orion before proceeding to the Shadows of the Future section. Understanding the topics in the third section would be difficult otherwise.

In the third section of LastCountdown, called the Gift of Prophecy, we apply ourselves to further topics, such as such as the trumpets, the plagues-turned-to-grace with a duration of 372 days, dream interpretations, and subjects that are particularly important to the harvest season. The End of the World series is now of especial importance, since the things we explored there are presently happening. Those studies are provided as a briefing on the tribulation period, which was postponed until the present time as a result of the failure of the Adventist church.

The first part of the fourth section, Behind Enemy Lines, contains relatively old articles, which consist predominantly of studies on side topics and represent observations regarding world events in the political and religious spheres. On the other hand, the Francis Romanus article series started only in 2013, based on recent events with far-reaching consequences. It highlights the setting up of the abomination of desolation (Matthew 24:15). Anyone who wants to understand what prominent person is serving as a vessel for Satan must study that series.

Under False Flag is about the machinations of the ever-degenerating SDA Church, which God has long ago rejected from preparing His way. There are also many world news items in the left column on the same topic.

Non-Chronological Study Method

Non-Chronological Study Method As of April 2017, some of the individual items on the “Important” menu have been completely revised and now serve as an important study aid. The short articles about Daniel’s timelines, the countdowns, the fireballs, and the Sunday law treat the most important topics, and those serve as a bridge between the first time proclamation on LastCountdown and the second time proclamation on White Cloud Farm. Those who work through those articles and follow their links and study the articles and series they link to will quickly acquire a condensed knowledge of God’s will for this last generation. If there is time remaining after that, it would still be possible to study further from the top menu according to the subject-wise chronological method.

Although the subject-wise chronological method corresponds much more to the way God taught us, we recommend the non-chronological studies only because of the shortness of time, which is a consideration that Ellen G. White mentioned…

As I saw what we must be in order to inherit glory, and then saw how much Jesus had suffered to obtain for us so rich an inheritance, I prayed that we might be baptized into Christ’s sufferings, that we might not shrink at trials, but bear them with patience and joy, knowing what Jesus had suffered that we through His poverty and sufferings might be made rich. Said the angel, “Deny self; ye must step fast.” Some of us have had time to get the truth and to advance step by step, and every step we have taken has given us strength to take the next. But now time is almost finished, and what we have been years learning, they will have to learn in a few months. They will also have much to unlearn and much to learn again. Those who would not receive the mark of the beast and his image when the decree goes forth, must have decision now to say, Nay, we will not regard the institution of the beast. {EW 67.2}

The Dissemination of the Message

The message of the fourth angel is the message that is preached for a testimony to all the world:

And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. (Matthew 24:14)

Studying is good, but bearing fruit is better:

But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. (James 2:20-23)

For that to happen, we have prepared study material in such a way that the “wise” of Daniel 12:3 can be teachers too. The foundational studies of the Clock of God and the Vessel of Time are available in slide presentation format. In addition, there are Excel spreadsheets with the most important timing information and feast day calculations. There are also charts, as there were in the time of William Miller, which illustrate the individual cycles of the Orion clock. The most recent findings of the second time proclamation are also summarized in a PowerPoint presentation, which is titled The Holy Mountain of Time (also available in PDF format). It includes all the important diagrams from the Seven Lean Years article of the White Cloud Farm website.

To facilitate distribution of the message for independent study, the entire LastCountdown website has also been made available on data DVD and as a PDF book. These versions can be easily burned to data DVDs or copied to USB flash drives for distribution.

People who have the love of God and His message have a unique opportunity to do a great work by participating in Operation “144,000 Balloons”. This will be one of the few ways to bring light into a world of darkness, especially during the expected tribulation. Even those who are less technologically gifted can easily learn how to participate.

With all the opportunities we offer in terms of study material, one must never forget that personal testimony is the most important tool for evangelism. No one will inherit the kingdom of heaven who does not publicly confess his faith.

Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 10:32-33)

Therefore, we ask you to show in social networks that you believe in the message of the fourth angel and are following the movement of High Sabbath Adventists by faith. Use the star crown applicator to place the symbol of the star crown of Alnitak (Jesus’ new name, meaning “the one who was wounded”) with the Orion Nebula, on your forehead on a photo and use it as your profile picture. May you then get many questions about what the symbol means, so you can testify of your faith!

Not the amount of labor performed or its visible results but the spirit in which the work is done makes it of value with God. Those who came into the vineyard at the eleventh hour were thankful for an opportunity to work. Their hearts were full of gratitude to the one who had accepted them; and when at the close of the day the householder paid them for a full day’s work, they were greatly surprised. They knew they had not earned such wages. And the kindness expressed in the countenance of their employer filled them with joy. They never forgot the goodness of the householder or the generous compensation they had received. Thus it is with the sinner who, knowing his unworthiness, has entered the Master’s vineyard at the eleventh hour. His time of service seems so short, he feels that he is undeserving of reward; but he is filled with joy that God has accepted him at all. He works with a humble, trusting spirit, thankful for the privilege of being a co-worker with Christ. This spirit God delights to honor. {COL 397.3}

Our prayers are with all the students of the last message to mankind, which the Holy Spirit has given us, as the fourth angel, in these recent years. May His seed fall on good ground, and spring forth quickly so fruit may develop for the glory of God.
