The Young Joseph with the Dreams – Part III

The Message to MARTHA

There is a severe famine in the land. It extends across the whole world. Whether affluent or poverty-stricken, every nation is in a severe crisis. This is not a hypothetical apocalyptic situation, but the present reality. It is not a famine for food, but a famine for the word of God.

Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord: (Amos 8:11)

“But”, you protest, “how can there be a famine for God’s word, when everyone has a Bible, and thousands hear the voice of God through dreams and visions!?” If this is your thinking, then fasten your seatbelt, because this may be a bumpy ride! But Jesus is driving, and He will bring you safely home if you trust Him, despite the bumps. We have to take a candid look at reality, even when it isn’t pretty.

Is it possible to be in the midst of famine and not be hungry? Can one eat, and yet be famished? It is indeed possible! The poverty-stricken population in Haiti, for example, cannot afford the soaring prices of the imported food, and the fertility of their own land has been terribly degraded, such that they cannot produce their own. The poor are reduced to filling their stomachs with “mud cookies” made from a tiny amount of food ingredients, bulked with a large proportion of local clay. They are essentially void of nutrition and reportedly have an aftertaste like, well, dirt. But the Haitian poor eat them because they can afford nothing else.

Haitian mud cakes

This is the condition of Christianity today. There are different reasons for their spiritual poverty—prejudice, fear, pride, delusion, tradition—all serve to prevent the truth from being heard and received. Instead of being well-nourished from the Word of God, they take the pinch of truth that is of value and mix it with copious quantities of their tradition, delusion, pride, etc., which have no spiritual value.

The end result is a generation of Christians that live on spiritual mud-cookies, and their malnourishment is evident. To obtain the truth, they would have to humble themselves, sacrifice their tradition and make themselves of no reputation. This was not too high a price for the Son of God, but it is apparently too high a price for those who would be His people! Therefore, we have the biblical counsel that invites us to let Jesus’ character become our own:

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. (Philippians 2:5-8)

The seven-year famine of Egypt as Joseph prophesied through Pharaoh’s dream has a counterpart today. The famine has already begun, and if Christians would in honesty let the humility of Christ in their hearts, they would realize that they are famished. Have you embraced the gift of Christ’s humility to feel the pangs of hunger for genuine, hearty food? Have you heard yet that there is grain in Egypt? Will you come to buy for yourself and for your household? If you keep reading, you will soon understand what that means, and how God prophesied this spiritual famine, and how He has made provision for His people to survive it.

The Land O’ Plenty

Looking again at the sequence of dreams in Joseph’s life, we are beginning to see the big picture with better clarity.

Dream Periods

The two dreams featuring wheat—the first and the last (highlighted green)—were fulfilled in Joseph’s day and related to the physical time of severe famine in the land. The prisoners’ dreams (highlighted red), besides their direct personal application, together also point forward to the final judgment after the thousand years are finished. And given that Joseph’s second dream points to this side of that thousand-year judgment, we can anticipate that the corresponding dream (#5) also points to the present time (highlighted blue), and thus must contain a message for us.

As Joseph interpreted the dreams to Pharaoh, he said they were “one”, so they must foretell the same thing: seven years of plenty followed by seven years of severe famine, but as we see, the sequence’s chiastic structure suggests that they point to two different times that are thousands of years apart. Furthermore, given that Joseph dream with the heavenly bodies points to a spiritual event, we could expect Pharaoh’s dream with the cows to be similarly figurative of something spiritual. Instead of a physical famine of bread, it is the famine for the word of God that Amos prophesied. We will understand more about that later.

The question is, when has there been a time of spiritual plenty, where the words of the Lord have been especially abundant? In this regard, it is worth noting what the Bible says about where the plenty was, and where the famine was:

And the seven years of plenteousness, that was in the land of Egypt, were ended. And the seven years of dearth began to come, according as Joseph had said: and the dearth was in all lands; but in all the land of Egypt there was bread. (Genesis 41:53-54)

It does not say that there was plenty in all lands! The famine was in all lands, but outside of Egypt, the Bible does not record that there was any unusual abundance during the first seven years. They had their daily bread, but apparently nothing exceptional. Thus, regarding the time of plenty, we should recognize that it was a localized phenomenon! God chose to give an abundance in one place (Egypt) that was sufficient for the surrounding world to buy in the time of famine to save their lives.

Thus, if the dream points to our day, we should expect there to be a certain “land o’ plenty” where the spiritual bread is in such abundant supply that the fifth part would be sufficient for satisfying the needs of all who might come! This represents no ordinary sermonizing, but a phenomenal message from heaven whose glory lightens the whole earth![1]

From the beginning of the LastCountdown website, the light beaming from God through the constellation of Orion was tremendously thrilling. How it stirred the heart and brought tears to the eyes, to realize that God was finally making good on His word! Jesus, our “exceeding great Reward”, was really coming, and God, with His own divine finger,[2] was making it known! The exclamation of our heart was, “Glory! Hallelujah!”

Soon we realized, however, that not many shared our joy at this revelation! Close friends, family members, pastors—all took it as foolishness and just sought how to find fault with it. We were shunned and persecuted by them until it became necessary to create a Refuge—a virtual storehouse of God’s truth, where those who appreciated it could partake in peace, without having to fight off so many attacks of our adversaries. Thus, the modern-day parallel to Joseph’s granaries was built and opened with its first forum post on August 14, 2011.[3]

Seven Fat Cows So began the seven years of plenty, when light was gathered in countless studies and the details hashed out before sharing its beautiful gems on the website. The light always seemed to grow exponentially, leaving us with the feeling at every step, that there could be nothing more amazing! Like with the angels surrounding God’s throne, every penetrating ray of light that broke through to our veiled faces was so glorious, it compelled us to worship Him “day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.”[4] Only He could package instruction and doctrine in such a marvelous and beautiful way that always reiterated that it came from Him, who alone knows the end from the beginning!

With the Orion clock, representing Jesus and His wounds for us, God led us in an understanding of the year of Jesus’ anticipated return. Then He led us into the complete understanding of His calendar, from which we take our name,[5] since the High Sabbaths are the key prophetic markers, with their roots in that special High Sabbath when Jesus lay in the tomb,[6] having given His blood as an unmatched sacrifice of love for humanity. We lived from the nourishment of His body in Orion and His blood in the High Sabbaths.[7]

His love was reflected in a sacrifice of our own, after which God worked even greater wonders than before! Soon, He opened the heavens and showed us incredible signs in the sun, moon, and stars. While Christians were stuck on the famed Great Sign of the woman of Revelation 12, which they wrongly assumed to be a rapture sign, God opened to our understanding a whole series of signs for the trumpets,[8] and He began to teach us His heavenly sign-language.

In Denial You can imagine our sadness as so very few people could be found who would listen, that they might partake of God’s rich bounties! With Isaiah, we cried in desperation,

Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? (Isaiah 53:1)

Only a handful of people were willing to acknowledge the hand of Omnipotence who was revealing such great treasures. The messianic prophecy continues with a description of Jesus that we could relate closely to as those who presented Him to the world in Orion.

For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. (Isaiah 53:2-3)

The Result of Rejection

The rejection of God’s final message from heaven, whose glory was to lighten the whole earth, could not go without consequence. The message began long ago with righteousness by faith—the understanding that Christian faith should not just “label” a person righteous but bring about genuine works of righteousness as Christ lives in the believer by faith to do the works. But when God began to give that instruction to the Seventh-day Adventist Church in 1888, it was rejected by the leaders.

That rejection prevented that the light could reach the world to prepare the way for Jesus’ return, which led to 120 years of “wilderness wandering” before God continued building upon that foundation. In the meantime, much changed in the world that resulted in the need to adapt the old prophetic understanding to the current situation, just as Paul had to adapt the prophecies pertaining to Israel to apply to Christians through faith.[9]

For example, the Adventist belief that the mark of the beast is the enforced worship on Sunday was indeed accurate in 1889, when such legislation actually came before the US Congress for a vote. Today, however, nothing of that sort could stand on its own, and the relevant prophecies must be understood in symbolic terms (but still within clear prophetic boundaries) as we have explained before.[10]

Having not received the love of the truth, those who arrogantly insist that God cannot turn against the people He once chose (as in “Once Chosen Always Chosen”),[11] have been left in a state of darkness and irrelevance, i.e., strong delusion[12]—by their own resistance to the truth. In other words, they live with a self-imposed famine through their refusal of God’s truth, which was freely available to them. As God rejected Saul, so He has rejected the Seventh-day Adventist Church from being His kings and priests.

For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king. (1 Samuel 15:23)

But it is not just the Seventh-day Adventists who are guilty. The light that first began to come in 1888 has finally been given in all its abundance through the seven years of plenty—and not just to that church, but to all! Because our own former brethren were found unworthy, we have gone to the streets and brought in the poor and crippled through our WhiteCloudFarm.org website. But still there is room!

So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things [the excuses of the invited guests]. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind. And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. (Luke 14:21-22)

The Silent Famine

Time, however, is not in the favor of those who delay to heed the call. Satan has been working to silence the voice of truth in whatever way he can. In 2018, that began to come by way of the impossibly restrictive Internet copyright and privacy laws—especially from the European Union, the beastly baby of the Vatican. The famine for the truth was looming just ahead, and many websites found it necessary to abandon their services to EU countries on account of those laws.

Since antiquity, Satan has always sought to silence God’s voice. At first, he sought diligently to destroy the written copies of the Bible and persecute those who dared to share its teachings. But the blood of the martyrs of Christ led only to more conviction of its truth, and the word of God survived. Satan then brought compromise into the church and led them to assume the role of the Holy Spirit in interpreting the Bible for the people. Thus, its truths became distorted and corrupt. Yet there was always a faithful, persecuted company apart from the church, who by the Spirit preserved the teachings of Jesus in their purity.

Top Ten Best Sellers Then with the advent of the printing press, the Bible began to go viral, and still outsells any other book each year by a long margin, even in our secular world. So, the Bible is here to stay—but Satan countered by introducing countless versions and even more interpretations, to the effect that confusion abounds and obscures the truth. Now God is giving a corroborating message from heaven to give emphasis and authority to the truth amidst the error, and the next ploy against it is to prevent that it may be discovered by enacting laws that make it difficult to communicate it. How can you share how prophecy is being fulfilled, if you can’t even quote the news anymore without obtaining a license from each source!? Requirements such as these are already settled, and it is just a matter of time until they are implemented by law in all EU countries!

Thus, after the seventh year of the Refuge came to an end on August 14, 2018, the famine for truth was set to begin. When the truth seeker realizes that truth is being suppressed, he sees that he is left without options and senses hunger. And it was immediately after the seven years of plenty that the suppression of truth became a prominent theme in the world. On that very day, the Pennsylvania Grand Jury published its horrific report about the child sexual abuse scandal and cover-up within the Catholic Church. And with the pope’s public acknowledgement of the scandal on August 20, 2018—a date we had recognized on the Orion Clock for close to two years[13]—the time of plagues officially began with an astonishing heavenly sign.

And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. (Revelation 15:1)

The Great and Marvelous Sign

Now the famine was truly felt throughout the world. It became clear to anyone with eyes that not even the church could be trusted to uphold the truth, but instead, they just worked to preserve their status and reputation. Then the murder of the Saudi political journalist, Jamal Khashoggi on the day marked in Orion as the start of the second plague, made it plain that the world leaders couldn’t be trusted any more than the church of Rome.[14]

Each plague showed that a different aspect of the Babylonian system was suppressing the truth and could not be trusted. Where would the truth-seeker go? The famine was severe. The protestant churches had long before shown their untrustworthiness, too. We wrote much about the terrible deception that our own former church practiced in 2015 (also on a date marked on the then-current Orion clock cycle!). That was a major factor that brought us to realize that God could not go forward with such leadership, and thus, the call to come out of all churches, which had followed faithfully in the footsteps of the Mother Church, the whore of Babylon.

Thus, the events during the cycle of plagues have made it obvious that the truth is not to be found in the institutions of this world, whether the churches who pretend to teach the truth, but just work for money, or the world leaders who pretend to support the truth, but execute those who disagree with them, and are not brought to justice. Few are the honest souls who may yet be led by God, being willing to hear His voice of instruction to correct their erroneous beliefs. Precious few!

Nevertheless, God has gone before and prepared the way for this trying time, to save those who are spiritually dying from their hunger for truth. Though hated by his brethren, Joseph became the agent God used to preserve life for the ancient world, as a type for Jesus—the Stone that was rejected by the builders, who became the chief Cornerstone of salvation for the lost race.

But the story of Joseph is not finished! There is more detail that has great significance for us and illustrates an important principle of God’s Kingdom. And connected with that is one question that we should ask regarding Pharaoh’s dream with the seven fat cows and seven lean cows, which will shed light on how to overcome the famine….

Why Cows?

The dreams of Joseph, the prisoners, and Pharaoh were not alone in revealing details about this time of judgment. The circumstances of the years of plenty and famine, and the lives of the family of Israel themselves also give prophetic testimony. Joseph was sold for some pieces of silver, put into prison, raised up again to be ruler over the whole land, and wrought a great deliverance for all who came to him. Jesus, likewise, was sold for some pieces of silver, submitted to the prison of death, was raised up again and brought to the Father, who appointed Him ruler over everything. The parallels are unmistakable! Nor do they end there!

When understood properly, one major part of Joseph’s story reveals the significance of the cows of Pharaoh’s dream and indicates what God wants to say to His people looking for spiritual nourishment today! It began when Israel realized the severity of the famine and sent ten of his sons to Egypt to purchase grain, having heard that they were well prepared for it.

Remember that in this story, Joseph represents Jesus. The lengthy interval between Joseph’s betrayal by his brethren and their visit to Egypt when he was ruler corresponds to the two millennia between Jesus’ first coming, when He was betrayed by His brethren, and the time connected with His second coming as a King in great glory! Thus, Joseph’s experience as a ruler in Egypt must have special significance for us today. Could it be that the tribes of spiritual Israel—Christians—might even come across Jesus without recognizing their Brother, being in a different setting, because He “made [H]imself strange unto them”!?[15]

Most Christians are hesitant to “seek Him that maketh the seven stars and Orion”.[16] They love Jesus, but don’t understand what He meant when He said to “look up,… for your redemption draweth nigh”[17] We are now at that time when our redemption is near. It is high time to look up and see what He has written in the stars![18]

Joseph knew his brothers would be coming to him and wanted to know whether they had changed at all since they had treated him so cruelly and sold him as a servant. Would you mistreat Jesus in the person of your fellow Christians if you didn’t recognize them as true brethren? Could it be that Jesus might test His people on that point today?

Benjamin Found Guilty Joseph was looking for something specific in his brethren, and he didn’t let them rest until he found it! While detaining one brother known for his cruelty,[19] Joseph sternly demanded that they bring Benjamin, well knowing that he was the other favored son like himself, whom they had despised. Had they overcome their wrong character traits, or would it be to them an opportunity to selfishly get rid of the other thorn in their flesh?

It was a question of the heart that Joseph was probing. Likewise, Jesus probes your heart to reveal whether His love is mature in your life. Do you understand how much our Father has invested in Jesus, and how terrible our sin is, for which Jesus was separated from His Father and “smitten of God”[20] on the cross?

Joseph wanted to know how his brothers would respond if they could see that their privileged half-brother, Benjamin, would be taken as a servant like they had caused himself to be. Thus, after a cordial meal together, Joseph arranged that Benjamin would be brought back and put in captivity under pretense of wrongdoing.

This was the time of test! Judah had pledged himself as a guarantee for Benjamin, that he would bring him back to his father in peace, and none of his brothers would consent to letting him out of their presence. They knew their father and that it would bring him to the grave if they returned to him without the favored son!

For thy servant [Judah] became surety for the lad unto my father, saying, If I bring him not unto thee, then I shall bear the blame to my father for ever. Now therefore, I pray thee, let thy servant abide instead of the lad a bondman to my lord; and let the lad go up with his brethren. For how shall I go up to my father, and the lad be not with me? lest peradventure I see the evil that shall come on my father. Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that stood by him; and he cried, Cause every man to go out from me. And there stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known unto his brethren. (Genesis 44:32-45:1)

It was not until Joseph saw that one was willing to make this sacrifice, that he could no longer restrain his yearning emotions to make himself known to his brethren! This is what Joseph was looking for, and he found it at last! How different might the story have been had his brethren not developed that sacrificial character through the intervening years? How sad would Joseph have been had he found his brethren still in their sin, ready to rid themselves of trouble without consideration of what it would bring upon their father.

These things have a parallel to the larger plan of salvation as well! Jesus, like Joseph, is testing His brethren on earth, looking for something in particular.

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

For nearly 2000 years, God’s elect have been crying out to Him, calling for Him to avenge them and take them away from this earth. And though He bears long with them, He said He would do so speedily! What is missing then? Why has He been so slow in coming? The rest of the verse answers that question. Until our time, He must not have found that faith. Of course, it is not the faith by which we are saved, for they are identified as the elect who cry out to Him, but even the elect must have a certain quality of faith that looks beyond mere redemption to know the heart of their Father!

The Altar of Sacrifice Do you know the heart of your heavenly Father? Do you know the evil that would come to Him[21] if “Benjamin” is not brought back to Him intact? Would you make yourself a guarantor for another, like Judah did, and be willing to stay in the prison of this earth and suffer, so that someone else might be made free? This is the sacrifice that Jesus is looking for—a character that puts the salvation of others above his own.

Do you understand now why Pharaoh’s dream, which points to our time, used the symbol of a sacrificial animal instead of stalks of wheat? Will God’s people develop a sacrificial character like Christ’s, which is represented by the fact that the number of cows (representing sacrifice) was seven (like Christ)?

Our Example of Sacrifice

Jesus’ character is represented in the four faces of the four living creatures around the throne in Revelation 4, which had the faces of a lion, a calf, a man, and an eagle. Each animal represents a certain aspect of His character, and one of those is the calf—a young sacrificial animal. It should come as no wonder that at this very time, the star of Orion that represents that sacrificial aspect of Christ’s character has been all over the news! That’s right, the red giant, Betelgeuse, one of the four outer stars of Orion, represents the living creature that was like a calf, because it is red like the blood that Jesus spilled.

If you follow any science news at all, it could hardly have escaped you that Betelgeuse has not been giving its normal light lately! And now it should also not escape you that the timing of this Betelguese Magnitude Changes dimming to unprecedented levels—which also coincides with the darkening of the sun and moon in the recent annular solar eclipse as we saw in Part II—is no accident!

Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof [Strong’s: Orion] shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. (Isaiah 13:9-10)

Yes, the word translated “constellations” is the same Hebrew word for Orion, and the dimming light of Orion’s Betelgeuse at this remarkable time is a perfect fulfillment! So far, the fading star is a fitting symbol for the fading hope that Jesus will truly find a full generation of 144,000 souls who would be willing to give all for Him who gave all for us. On the other hand, the star could suddenly explode into a magnificent supernova and become as bright as the full moon!

Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. (1 John 3:16)

You know John 3:16, which speaks of God’s love for the world, but what about 1 John 3:16, which speaks of us reflecting His example and showing the same kind of love!? This is the faith that Jesus is looking for—“the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ”[22]—not just in one or two, but in His body collectively!

To that body in whom Jesus finds that faith, He, like Joseph, cannot refrain Himself, but the yearning of His heart compels Him to reveal Himself to them. They are His brothers, born of the same self-sacrificial Spirit. You will see Him in an altogether new light when you follow the Lamb wherever He goes—even when He goes as a Lamb to the slaughter! Remember that scene, and when you take pleasure at the thought of escaping tribulation in the rapture to reign with Christ, think about what it really means to follow the sacrificial Lamb wherever He goes! Some insightful words regarding the story of Jesus’ sacrifice are instructive:

And now the Lord of glory was dying, a ransom for the race. In yielding up His precious life, Christ was not upheld by triumphant joy. All was oppressive gloom. It was not the dread of death that weighed upon Him. It was not the pain and ignominy of the cross that caused His inexpressible agony. Christ was the prince of sufferers; but His suffering was from a sense of the malignity of sin, a knowledge that through familiarity with evil, man had become blinded to its enormity. Christ saw how deep is the hold of sin upon the human heart, how few would be willing to break from its power. He knew that without help from God, humanity must perish, and He saw multitudes perishing within reach of abundant help.

Darkness Surrounded the Cross

Upon Christ as our substitute and surety was laid the iniquity of us all. He was counted a transgressor, that He might redeem us from the condemnation of the law. The guilt of every descendant of Adam was pressing upon His heart. The wrath of God against sin, the terrible manifestation of His displeasure because of iniquity, filled the soul of His Son with consternation. All His life Christ had been publishing to a fallen world the good news of the Father’s mercy and pardoning love. Salvation for the chief of sinners was His theme. But now with the terrible weight of guilt He bears, He cannot see the Father’s reconciling face. The withdrawal of the divine countenance from the Saviour in this hour of supreme anguish pierced His heart with a sorrow that can never be fully understood by man. So great was this agony that His physical pain was hardly felt.

Satan with his fierce temptations wrung the heart of Jesus. The Saviour could not see through the portals of the tomb. Hope did not present to Him His coming forth from the grave a conqueror, or tell Him of the Father’s acceptance of the sacrifice. He feared that sin was so offensive to God that Their separation was to be eternal. Christ felt the anguish which the sinner will feel when mercy shall no longer plead for the guilty race. It was the sense of sin, bringing the Father’s wrath upon Him as man’s substitute, that made the cup He drank so bitter, and broke the heart of the Son of God. {DA 752.4-753.2}[23]

Do you see, in contrast with Jesus’ own willingness to sacrifice to the utmost, how selfish it is to shun any sacrifice of our own!? Is it really Christian (Christ-like) to seek one’s own salvation as “the most important thing” regardless of the fate of countless others who are lost? Should we not also, like Moses, rather be blotted out than to see God’s people forsaken in their sinful ways?

But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able. (Matthew 20:22)

The 144,000 sing the experiential song of Moses and the Lamb, saying,

…Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold. Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin—; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written. (Exodus 32:31-32)

The Great Deliverance

The story of Joseph revealing himself to his brethren is one so full of emotion that it is difficult not to be moved by it. It was not until he found that his brethren had been transformed and showed genuine sacrificial love, that he began to make arrangements to bring Israel’s family to himself, to dwell near him. Likewise, what marks the time when Jesus will gather the spiritual children of Israel and bring them up in the rapture to Himself, to live with Him forever, is the expression of sacrifice! He will not reveal Himself before! The type also gives indication of when that was:

For these two years hath the famine been in the land: and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither be earing nor harvest. And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance. (Genesis 45:6-7)

It was in the second year of the famine when Joseph began the preparations to fill the wagons with food and goods from the land of Egypt, including changes of clothing for each person, representing the justification of the sinner. Likewise, after the seven years of plenty, when the Refuge was filled with spiritual bread, the seven years of famine began with the plagues on August 20, 2018. We are now in the second year of the prophesied famine of Pharaoh’s lean cows! That means that this year, the antitypical Joseph (i.e., Jesus) will likewise work to bring about a great deliverance to save your lives, physically as well as spiritually.

And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days. (Mark 13:20)

Do you see how this Refuge is prophesied in the Scriptures? Though you may have despised Jesus in Orion, He has gone before you to save your lives. It is part of the plan. This message from Orion is the sacrificial flesh and blood of The Wounded One[24]—food and drink indeed, which He has directed His servants to load into wagons for His chosen ones to bring them to the land of Goshen. Will you partake of His provision for the journey and come, or would you rather ride out the famine with your mud cookies? The choice is yours, but Jesus invites you to leave all and follow Him with these words:

Also regard not your stuff; for the good of all the land of Egypt is yours. And the children of Israel did so: and Joseph gave them wagons, according to the commandment of Pharaoh, and gave them provision for the way. (Genesis 45:20-21)

This represents the last call of Jesus before He returns to receive His people to Himself. This Refuge is His means of gathering spiritual Israel to make the journey through the stars until we come to “Goshen”, the earth made new. All comes on time, according to God’s clocks, and according to His wisdom, as He prophesied through the lives of His ancient people, with whom He made a covenant.

The Remnant of the Seed

Contemplating Jesus’ own death on the cross, the dullest spiritual comprehension will bring one to tears for the undeserved love that He showed toward the lost and unthankful race—especially when you realize that you are among them! How alone Jesus must have felt with no one alive who understood His love or His benevolent purpose for them! Even His closest disciples fled from Him in His hour of greatest need. When His dear Father in heaven, the only One with whom He could share the burden of His unappreciated love, drew back the beams of His support, our Savior felt completely forsaken, yet He held firm to His purpose.

Psalm 22

When Jesus, under the burden of the world’s guilt, began to repeat the words of Psalm 22 on the cross—a Psalm that prophesied many details of that scene—the prophet Isaiah says He saw the travail of His soul, and was satisfied.[25] His encouragement came as He reflected on the closing verses that point to the fruit of His suffering—all the redeemed. In the last verses, it mentions the “seed” that would serve Him: the 144,000 who would count as a generation.

A seed shall serve him [the Lord]; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation. They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this. (Psalm 22:30-31)

They have the special role in declaring the righteousness of Christ by living it in their lives by faith.

These are they which were not defiled with women [churches]; 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 14:4-5)

Do you understand now, why the Once Saved Always Saved doctrine completely undermines God’s plan for the last generation before He comes? It is a doctrine of the devil that is calculated to produce complacency and is fundamentally selfish, reducing salvation to a mere plan of relocation! The freedom from sin is not valued as a precious possession, but only escaping the trouble and pain of this world to get all that their selfish heart could desire in the world to come! James wrote poignantly of the desires of this class:


Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world [through sin] is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. (James 4:3-4)

Jesus offers salvation from sin, not just extraterrestrial colonization like elite billionaires aim for, to carry our sins throughout the universe! How can one who claims to be a Christian be complacent about sin in his life, when it was that very sin that quenched the life of the Son of God!? The enemy uses many who believe this doctrine to carry out his warfare against the remnant through persecution.

And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. (Revelation 12:17)

But it is not just about Once Saved Always Saved! Jesus wants His people to be united in Spirit and in truth, and not just in the hope of an imminent rapture! Will you receive His instruction?

In this generation, few are willing to honestly consider specific Bible prophecy that points to a specific ministry. We love to escape in generalities instead of confronting the reality that we may need to make a decision and be accountable for it! Many would rather believe that there are many truths, each according to the individual’s preference, than submit to the conviction of the Holy Spirit and have to change their lifestyle, risking losing their reputation! But God has always had one absolute truth as it is in Jesus, who broke with the corrupt traditions of the people around Him.

John the Baptist recognized himself personally in the prophetic scriptures,[26] as did Jesus, of course. And many since then have recognized specific nations or peoples in Bible prophecy, whether they were very populous or just a few. Do not be a respecter of persons or their number, nor be proud, thinking you can’t be wrong. The higher ways of our Lord almost always come as a surprise to the humble, but as a shock of horror to the proud (when they are finally forced to see the truth).

There is little time, now, to receive what was yours for the taking if you could lay down your pride and in humility receive the truth because it is true (i.e. revealed by the Holy Spirit), instead of listening to man—those who please you with what you already believe. There is much to learn and much to unlearn in a very short time.

We also had to learn and unlearn many things! We are a small team, but God is doing great things through this little company, just as He did through small groups throughout sacred history, including Joseph and his brothers, or the disciples of Christ! We have presented the evidence in thousands of pages, and what you read here is just the cherry on top! The Lord made it possible for us to prepare the Refuge for when His people will be willing to use it! May it not be too late, as it was for many who scorned Noah’s preparations for their safety.

The Second Coming of Jesus It is time now for Jesus to come, but it is up to you if you will open your heart to welcome the light from the angel who came down from heaven to lighten the world. As Joseph prepared the good land of Goshen, Jesus has prepared a place for us, that where He is, there we may be also,[27] and He will nourish us there, giving us to eat of the Tree of Life,[28] for if He did not deliver His elect now, they would all be brought to spiritual poverty and die with the wicked in this great famine and no flesh would be saved![29] Don’t refuse His provisions for the journey in this Refuge!

From the beginning, God has indeed foretold the end! The symbols of biblical dreams point the sincere seeker to the fountain of truth in Christ, which may be found in the possession of His faithful people. The faith of this last generation of the saved—the faith of Jesus—is revealed through obedience—even if only in a few.

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

Will you also be counted among those who through the faith of Jesus, keep God’s commandments out of love? This is a defining characteristic of the high calling of the 144,000, in whom, the Father’s own life is bound up.

This message is not just a nice sermon, but it calls for serious change. Please hear the call as from the Lord, hearken to His voice, and overcome.

Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. (Revelation 22:14)

And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. (Revelation 22:17)
