The Mystery Finished – Part III


The unraveling of the mystery of God reveals His justice and care in warning the world of the fulfillment of His prophecies, as tick after tick on His clock has shown that the time of His wrath is at hand. His mystery is intrinsically connected with the times on His clock, as you have seen from reading Part I and Part II of this series. God is Time, and in His all-encompassing wisdom and mercy, He has given ample provision for the cleansing, care, and protection of His children while those who reject Him are left to the peril of their own choices.

In this last part of the series, you will learn about the most amazing revelations God has given through the remaining times on His clock and the marvelous plan He has devised to strengthen those who will seal their testimony for Jesus with their blood as martyrs in the coming time.

As the trumpets of Revelation warned of worse things that were to come in the time of plagues and thunders, the three “woes” also forewarn of three birth pangs in the closing hours of the seven thunders, ushering in the coming of Jesus!

The Seven Thunders

What God is revealing concerning the “hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world” as the first birth pang will be presented. As you learn about it, you will see the marvelous plans of God at work and how He is preparing His people for the time of the second and third birth pangs. Do you know what purpose God has for you during those months?

God is revealing much light about the last stretch of time on His clock, and as we share ray after ray of light in this last part of this article series, it is our prayer that it will prove a blessing and an encouragement to understand that the terrible things that will continue to increase in the world are not unknown to God and that in His wisdom, He has provided the necessary knowledge for all those who choose to come to Him and trust in His guiding hand.

May you, dear reader, be strengthened to fulfill the role that God has for you during the coming time. May you be led to proclaim in awe:

Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. (Revelation 15:3)

Do You Hear What I Hear?

The last three thunders, which are also the biblical birth pangs, will bring the most terrible time of tribulation that this earth has endured. Three thunders have already passed,[1] and as I write these lines, the timeframe of the fourth thunder continues to advance, as the hand of God’s clock continues to tick its way through the segment from Betelgeuse to the left throne lines.

In prophetic language, the imagery of thunders refers to happenings so “loud” and far-reaching that everyone is aware of them, even if they do not understand what the rumblings mean. As great rumblings are being figuratively heard around the world, the press has recently been trying to remind people of just how much absolute power and destruction lie at the origin of the loudest thunders known to man: the atomic bomb. Their fear is that today’s generation simply does not know what an open-air atomic blast is really like.

Among those who witnessed such tests a generation ago, there were many who were deeply shaken by what they had seen. An atomic explosion in its full indescribable power is entirely different than an underground test.

Sure, it’s impressive when a 2000-meter-high mountain suddenly shakes, as dust clouds whirl up from foot to summit, as scree matter everywhere slides down to the bottom and shakes the earth all over the place. But that is not the same as the impression left by a living mushroom cloud. Films do not reflect this adequately. The descriptions of the eyewitnesses are characterized by the horrified as well as overwhelmed search for words that could reflect what happened.

The play of colors in the mushroom cloud, the sheer enormity of this cloud, the impression of what it looks like when an area the size of Frankfurt or Munich is inexorably and inescapably sucked up into the gullet of this mushroom cloud; the blast of pressure that sweeps through the landscape twice with multiple times the force of a hurricane, first spreading out and followed a few minutes later with the pull-back of the mushroom cloud at the same speed, the thunder that eludes every description—all this was for the eyewitnesses an impression of Judgment Day.[2]

The world is hearing the thunder roll. As we draw nearer to the moment when the time of great trouble will begin, we see that even the news[3] corroborates that we are indeed in a time of thunders! The nations even use the word “thunder” in military exercises that involve their nuclear arsenals. They are preparing for a great conflagration and they have named their exercises according to the current thunder cycle of God’s clock! This is no coincidence at all!

What makes it [Russia’s October 2019 military exercise] different this year is that it now has a name, and the military announced it beforehand at a briefing for foreign military attaches,” Stefanovich said. “Plus this time there is a fantastic number of missile launchers of Strategic Missile Forces involved, the ground part Global Thunder exercise of the nuclear triad. More than 200 (launchers). It’s the majority of what they have.”

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu first announced the “Thunder-2019” drill in December last year, when he reported to President Vladimir Putin that orders to modernize the country’s strategic nuclear force had been implemented.

Pro-Kremlin news outlets reported then that “Thunder-2019” was intended to be Russia’s response to similar drills in the U.S. called “Global Thunder.”

The termination of the U.S. arms treaty with Russia has been a trigger for both countries to focus on their nuclear readiness, and their provocations are increasing. This is all happening at the right time as God’s clocks warn of the coming nuclear war that will destroy a large part of the earth![4] We learned in part II how the prophecy of the sixth trumpet points specifically to December 22, 2019 as the day for the fulfillment for the work of the four angels that are loosened to slay the third part of men.

Just like the fourth trumpet announced the three woes coming upon the world,[5] the developments during this segment of the fourth thunder also give a glimpse of what is to come upon the world during the three birth pangs that follow.

In addition to the visible moves of nations in preparation for greater provocations and ultimately destructive actions, God has given important understanding during this fourth thunder segment about a transition point in the history of the world when the great trouble will have officially come over it like a fiery baptism, and the trouble will increase in visibility more and more in the ensuing months. This will become unmistakably clear as we advance through the clock in this study.

Through the exploration of that important transition point in this article, we pray that its understanding may be a blessing to the sincere reader through the recognition of the leading of God. Throughout the history of the world, God has revealed important events related to His plan of salvation and His ministration on behalf of humankind through His prophecies and on the cycles of His clock in Orion.[6] God has always had a remnant that though few at first, has persevered in studying His word to understand what He is revealing about His plan and about the duty of humans.

The Judgment and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

A great part of God’s ministration on behalf of mankind has been done in the heavenly sanctuary.[7] On October 22/23, 2019, which this year was the Jewish anniversary of Jesus’ birthday[8] according to God’s calendar, it was at the same time the solar anniversary of the beginning of the Day of Atonement 175 years earlier in 1844,[9] when Jesus entered the Most Holy place in the heavenly sanctuary to begin the investigative judgment.[10] The investigative judgment consisted of 168 years for the judgment of the dead from 1844 until 2012, plus 7 years for the judgment of the living, leading to this special anniversary in 2019. God gave the understanding of this judgment in accordance with His promise that He does not do anything before revealing His work to His servants the prophets.[11]

Investigative Judgment

Many studies shared on this website and on LastCountdown.org have given testimony to the timelines of the investigative judgment that was conducted for Christians in the world. For a long time, it remained a mystery when exactly this investigation would end. In several studies, we attempted to ascertain that, but we did not understand exactly what would follow! It is fitting that on a date marking the important 175th anniversary of the beginning of the investigative judgement, He would declare its end to His remnant church. The investigative judgment was a time of sifting and purification of all those who have claimed Jesus as their Savior.

The purpose of this [investigative] judgment is to vindicate the saints before the onlooking universe, to prepare them for Christ’s imminent Second Coming, and to demonstrate God’s righteous character in His dealings with humanity. This judgment will also separate true believers from those who falsely claim to be ones. (Wikipedia)

The weighing in the balances has concluded, and now the time in which the hearts of men will be revealed has begun. Those who prepared in advance will continue to grow and those who did not, will fall. This is the time described in the Bible as:

He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.[12] (Revelation 22:11-12)

In giving understanding of this transition, God is mercifully preparing His children to face the time ahead. This is the time to cling to His promises and to hold onto Him by faith testifying for His kingdom despite whatever trouble may come.

As the investigative judgment finished, the time of the baptism of the Holy Spirit began, which Jesus described as being characterized by hardship:

I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled? But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished! Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: (Luke 12:49-51)

Let us examine the meaning of this time further:

They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory. But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto them, Ye shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall ye be baptized: But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared. (Mark 10:37–40)

It is important to understand that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is associated in the Bible with a great time of trouble. We see that the baptism of the Holy Spirit involves drinking an unpleasant cup, and it can lead to experiencing persecution, torture, and even martyrdom as it was exemplified by the disciples in the time of Jesus.

I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire. (Matthew 3:11–12)

Baptism of the Holy Spirit God is a consuming fire and only those who have submitted themselves to His purifying work will be able to be gathered into his barn and those whose hearts have not been renewed by the Holy Spirit will in turn be burned up like chaff as the Bible indicates.

October 22/23, 2019 marked the beginning of that time of baptism,[13] which will include the great tribulation in which men’s hearts will be exposed, while the clock of God ticks on through the period of the three birth pangs. Trouble is upon the world and it is being manifested clearly in various ways already.[14] The “display of lawlessness” at the White House exactly at the beginning of this transitioning period is clear evidence of the division that will continue to grow and has high potential to lead to uncontrolled acts of violence in the form of riots and even a civil war where Christians will also be implicated. Many Trump supporters are Christians and Catholics and those who want to uphold morals and truth will be faced with opposition from those who want to support a president who has taken upon himself a blasphemic role.[15] The time for the fulfillment of this verse has commenced:

And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. (Matthew 24:10)

Trump’s impeachment process was a low rumble that became a loud peal when a whistleblower’s report was published precisely on August 12, 2019—the throne line of God the Father (Alnilam) right at the beginning of the second thunder!

Now at the beginning of the Jewish year, with the moon sighted on October 29/30 according to the temple in Paraguay, the developments in the impeachment process have gained momentum that will most likely trigger the chaos in the United States soon. On October 31, the House passed a resolution that “will almost definitely end in the president’s impeachment”. They are speaking in certain terms about the impeachment!

The possible timeline given for this impeachment is highly significant:

Possible timeline: Democrats are discussing a time frame that would include public impeachment hearings before Thanksgiving and votes on whether to impeach Trump by Christmas, multiple Democratic sources have told CNN.

They are anticipating the process to be executed by (pagan) Christmas! The first birth pang, beginning with the left throne lines of December 19-22, will usher in a time (the fifth thunder) in which the cities fall in the hail described at the end of the seventh trumpet text.

And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail. (Revelation 11:19)

There will be months of tribulation to follow that will only get worse as time progresses. When Babylon has been fully rewarded double on April 27, 2020 after the seventh thunder, it will no longer be a pre-tribulation rapture! Nevertheless, true to Jesus’ promise, He will take the elect at that time before it is physically too late to save them! Those who endure the fiery tribulation until the end—the 144,000—are His firstfruits.

Time of Great Trouble

The Lighthouse of First Fruits

Let’s take a moment to look further at the right throne lines, when Jesus returns, because the throne lines of one side are connected by a reflection point to the throne lines of the other side. So, the events at the throne lines on one side of the clock are always related to the events at the throne lines on the other side. We saw this principle in Part II[16] with the relationship of the symbolic gravitational “earthquake” at the right throne lines of August 14, 2019 after the first thunder, to the great destruction that is to come on the left throne lines segment when the cities fall according to the sequence of the seventh plague events.

This relationship between the throne lines on either side of the clock is very important and its understanding has led to a great revelation that we will explore now!

First of all, on the right side of the clock, the date of April 27, 2020 at this point is quite astonishing to find on this repeated cycle, because it happens to be the seven-year anniversary of a special event, of which we wrote a whole series about its significance. That event was an “eye-wateringly bright” heavenly sign that gained world-wide fame within the astronomical community! It was (and is) the brightest gamma-ray burst (GRB) ever detected! Thankfully, it was just a sign, originating in a very distant galaxy, because if it were close, such a burst would destroy the earth’s ecosystem and ultimately all life on the planet. That is what makes it the perfect sign for the final destruction, which leads men to hide themselves “in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains,” crying out, “Who shall be able to stand?” The great day of the wrath of the Lamb will usher in the end of human life on the earth.

But the date when the GRB was observed: April 27, 2013, was a special date in itself! It was a feast day on God’s calendar: the feast of first fruits. This was the commemorative day when Jesus—as well as a selection of His redeemed first fruits—rose from the dead after resting in the tomb over the Sabbath! Thus, its throne-line anniversary after Babylon drinks double from the Orion cup,[17] is a perfect time for the great and most glorious resurrection of the righteous of all ages at the last day!

But could it be that the reflection on the left side of the clock on December 19-22, 2019 also points to a (smaller) resurrection event? Would there be biblical evidence to substantiate that association? Indeed, there is! This reflection shows an amazing and solemn picture of God’s plans!

In Daniel 12:2, the Bible talks about a special resurrection as it describes the following:

And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. (Daniel 12:2)

This describes a special resurrection of “many,” and God’s clock shows when it will take place: at the left throne lines (December 19-22, 2019) reflecting the general resurrection of all the righteous from all ages on April 27, 2020! The Orion lighthouse has a two-beamed light that shines at the throne lines! The resurrection and rapture on the right is reflected in a special firstfruits “sample” resurrection and rapture on the left! These are the firstfruits of the second anointed one, just like those who were raised up at the death of Jesus, the first anointed One.

And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. (Matthew 27:52-53)

The Lighthouse of First Fruits

That sounds absolutely amazing! And now the question that should arise is, who is this group of people that will be resurrected, and for what purpose are they resurrected at that point in time? This group is prophesied to be composed of faithful Christians who died believing in the warning of the third angel’s message.[18] They are also part of the church of Philadelphia, which will be kept from the hour of temptation that Jesus prophesied will come upon the world.

Hail from Space We already know that the time during the left throne lines will not be a time of peace because the text of the seventh plague refers to the falling cities of the nations, the day that the prophecy of the sixth trumpet[19] has pointed to, as we learned in Part II. A third part of humanity is prophesied to be slain at that time, reflecting the corresponding final destruction of the world by “hail”[20] (fireballs from large space rocks?) at the right throne lines.

More than a resurrection, however, the throne lines also point to a special rapture at the December 19-22 date range as a reflection of the great rapture on April 27, 2020! The church that is raptured at this time before the tribulation is composed of three groups of people: a small group who have studied and understood the seal of the church of Philadelphia and have demonstrated a character of self-sacrifice, the group of resurrected ones as explained above, and the 144,000 (or a representative part of them) who have shown faith by at least watching and waiting expectantly for their Lord with a sacrificial spirit according to the light they have received! These all comprise Philadelphia and are spared from the hour of temptation that follows.

The Hour of Temptation

Yes, there is an hour[21] that will come upon the earth that will test men to the utmost, to reveal their true character. Many will fall who do not have a true heart of sacrificial love. It is only the church of Philadelphia that is promised to be kept from that hour.

And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write… Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. (Revelation 3:7,10)

How many who just want to escape for selfish reasons might be disappointed or even embittered against their faith should they discover that their belief didn’t protect them from receiving the tribulation, because they did not develop the character of Philadelphia!?[22] That will be a very trying and fateful hour for the churches.

The question we should ask is, what does God reveal about that hour from His clock? Is it a prophetic hour of 15 days?[23] Is it an Orion hour of 7 years?[24] Or is it a different kind of hour? We get a clue when we realize that God has two clocks in the stars: Jesus’ Orion clock (including all its cycles) and the Mazzaroth clock of the Father. Both clocks have a “throne” and a line that passes through the throne. On the Mazzaroth clock, the throne is the black hole at the galactic center, Sagittarius A*.[25] Thus, the throne line is the galactic equator itself, and there are only two specific days each year when the sun activates the galactic equator, which essentially correspond to the June solstice and the December solstice.

Of the seven (!) Orion cycles that we now have,[26] only one of the 45 unique dates[27] that are indicated on the various cycles corresponds to a throne line on the Mazzaroth clock, and it happens to be the throne line of December 22, 2019! In the previous section, we explained why this is the expected rapture point for Philadelphia, so the hour from which they are spared must follow. One hour on the Mazzaroth clock corresponds to one month,[28] which, remarkably, is exactly how much time there is on the Orion clock until the next star, Saiph: 30 days![29]

The Hour of Temptation

During the hour of temptation, the Holy Spirit will be taken away along with Philadelphia and “that Wicked” will be unmasked for who he really is.

For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he [the Holy Spirit] who now letteth [resists or hinders] will let, until he be taken out of the way [the withdrawal of the Holy Spirit from the earth at the Mintaka throne line of December 22, 2019]. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth [beginning January 20, 2020], and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming [on April 27, 2020]: (2 Thessalonians 2:7-8)

This will make that hour one that will intensely try the hearts of those who must endure it; only Philadelphia is kept from it. Could it be that the Bible refers to this same important hour of temptation as the hour for the judgment of the Babylonian system to be ushered in with the first birth pang—an hour that is mentioned three times in Revelation 18!? That would be very remarkable, fitting perfectly with the fall of Babylon.

And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. (Revelation 18:9-10)

And it is not just the kings, but especially the merchants—those who “had ships in the sea”, or in other words, who had an interest in the global trade market—who bewail her:

The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,… For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,… saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate. (Revelation 18:15-19)

Much of the chapter is dedicated to the lamentation of the merchants as excerpted here and the variety of their merchandise that can no longer be sold. Thus, the emphasis on economic collapse is very pronounced.[30] What we can now buy at the store down the road, will then not be possible to buy at all. Buying and selling will come to a virtual standstill with the whole economy. Then one could easily imagine how purchasing a few groceries could be restricted just to those who have the mark of the beast! Therefore, understanding what the mark of the beast is—and how not to take it—is of vital importance. God has made provision for that guidance for all His children through this ministry, because He is just!

But what does it mean that this hour is not at the end? What about the rest of the time until the General Resurrection on April 27, 2020? Is that time not also a time of test? Is Philadelphia not also spared from that period? What is the Lord revealing about the time after that special rapture? These are pertinent questions that have clear, biblical answers that almost certainly will surprise you!

The hour of temptation will be a time of learning and unlearning for the spared. Could it be in God’s plan that for some who escape this hour, He may yet have a special work to do on earth—even after the rapture? Keep in mind that Saiph marks the white horse rider, who comes “conquering and to conquer!” The next section will shed light on that important subject!

The Foundation of the Temple

On God’s clock in Orion, when the dates of December 19-22 are reached for the beginning of the first birth pang, a sacred segment of time will have arrived; it is a section on the clock that is formed by the lines that go through the three belt stars in the middle of the Orion clock, which represent the thrones of Jesus (Alnitak), the Father (Alnilam), and the Holy Spirit (Mintaka).[31] The left throne lines emanate from Alnitak alone, so the star representing Jesus is highlighted for that period. This is significant because the special rapture at the left throne lines has a specific purpose in God’s design that you will soon learn about.

Alnitak Throne LineWhen we speak of God’s plan of salvation, the temple is obviously an integral part of it! But while God does have a temple on earth—not the abominations they are doing to erect one in Jerusalem, but the temple on the White Cloud Farm in Paraguay, which has been confirmed by God—His heavenly temple is the most significant, which temple we are!

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? (1 Corinthians 3:16)

But if we are that temple, then it cannot be fully built until we are taken to heaven! Nevertheless, the Chief Cornerstone, Jesus, has been laid. But Paul tells us that the foundation is the apostles and prophets:

Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: (Ephesians 2:19-21)

The temple of God is a living structure! The Cornerstone is the Spring of Life Himself, and the foundation is made of living people. The church body “grows” into the structure of this living temple. What day would be good for the foundations of this living temple to be laid? When was the foundation laid for the temple where Jesus taught? The Bible records the answer:

Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the Lord’s temple was laid, consider it. (Haggai 2:18)

The temple foundation was laid—being a most important and memorable work—on the 24th day of the ninth Hebrew month. With a knowledge of the calendar of God, we can easily determine when that would be in 2019 according to the more familiar Gregorian calendar. It is quite remarkable indeed that this day falls on December 21, 2019—squarely within the throne lines of this special Orion cycle! This is a clear biblical confirmation that those who will form the foundation of God’s living temple should be raptured on that day!

And what will they receive when they are taken? LIGHT! A feast of light! The “Feast of Lights” or Hanukkah begins the day after the temple dedication day! Another word for light, symbolically speaking, is bread. The church of Philadelphia who is spared from the hour of temptation is given a rich feast, and not just because they are special, but because God has a purpose for them in His wonderful plan!

God’s army will receive training at their divinely orchestrated “retreat” during the hour of temptation on the earth, being provided for with the heavenly light (bread) for the last battle. It will be a time when those from the special resurrection and the 144,000 will go through the experience described in the following way:

I saw that some of us [the members of Philadelphia that have already accepted the light of the fourth angel and know God as Time] 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 [the specially resurrected ones and the 144,000] will have to learn in a few months. And they will have to unlearn much, and learn again. And those who will not receive the mark of the beast and his image [the martyrs who seal their testimony with their blood], when the decree goes forth, must have decision now to say, nay, we will not regard the institution of the beast. {ExV 55.1}

During the feast of light, the small group of God’s army that is already acquainted with all the truths revealed through God’s clock will accompany Jesus in teaching the rest of the army the gems of time that will equip them for their ministry for the martyrs. All the scales of anti-time setting will fall from their eyes as they learn about the marvelous heavenly message right at the throne of God (beginning at the sacred segment of time on the clock of the left throne lines). It will be a blessed time of unification for the last part of the battle for the remaining time on the clock!

The prophet Haggai had a second prophecy on the same day, which also relates to this time:

And again the word of the Lord came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying, Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth [with an earth-shaking resurrection and rapture]; And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms [the cities of the nations that fall], and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother [a hint to war—even civil war(s)]. In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, will I take thee [in the rapture], O Zerubbabel [Philadelphia], my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the Lord, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the Lord of hosts. (Haggai 2:20-23)

He will make Philadelphia a signet ring. And what is a signet ring used for? Of course, to seal things—or in this case to encourage the martyrs whose number must be filled before Jesus comes to “seal” their testimony with their blood.

“But wait,” you protest, “how will they do that work if they are themselves in heaven?” It is a logical question, and its answer is just as logical: at least some of this group must return to earth to do that special work! And this is where the beauty of God’s time really begins to shine through, because when should they come back? Would there be a better day to return than the same temple dedication day? But they should return after those on earth have been tried and sifted during the hour of temptation!

It is a principle of God’s calendar that there are two possibilities for when the year might begin. The first fruits of the barley harvest would have to be fully ripe and ready to present as an offering before they would be needed later that first month. Thus, if the barley was not ready to offer, then an additional month would be counted before the new year would begin. This divine intervention factor leads to two possible beginnings of the year, and consequently for each month thereafter. Now here is a glimpse of the glory of God’s power: The Saiph point on the Orion clock (January 20, 2020) marks precisely this very temple dedication day, but in the second possibility of the month! And this, too, was prophesied in the first of these prophecies of Haggai.

Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you. (Haggai 2:19)

These two prophecies given on the temple foundation date prophesy of two dates on the clock, and both have to do with the foundation of God’s living temple. Now the Lord says, “from this day will I bless you.” That is, from January 20, 2020! Then His chosen signet returns to the earth and performs their sealing duties to strengthen the martyrs to vindicate God through a faithful testimony of His righteousness, certified with their blood in completion of their number, which is necessary in order to make up the subjects of God’s kingdom before Jesus’ coming. They are the representatives of Jesus in the earth, going forth conquering, and to conquer.

Conquering on a White Horse

Yet for added assurance, God gives more than one witness to the development of His plans. In the next chapter, you will learn about God’s provision for His people with the distributions of the portions of the Holy Spirit, that beautifully confirm the time for the rapture of the church of Philadelphia and the special feast of light (bread) that they will take part in while those on the earth are tried between the left throne lines (December 19-22) and the star Saiph (January 20).

Strengthening for Battle

We live in a time of emergency, and at such times, food is rationed. But God is a planner, and He laid out a rationing plan well in advance—about 3500 years in advance—so we could have enough of His Spirit in reserve to sustain us in times of need. Fittingly, it is in the sacrificial services where God organized the end-time rations, each of which was accompanying a sacrifice. Were it not for Jesus’ sacrifice, there could be no rations provided! This is also reflected in the doubling of the prophesied portions when we gave our own sacrifice![32]

But there are times when God needs to test His children to prove their love and loyalty in times of want. That testing time is needed for those who have not already shown the self-sacrificial character He is looking for in His children. This purpose will be accomplished during the hour of temptation. Many who now appear strong may then reveal their true weakness in the face of heavy trials. Only those who have a deep love for the truth will stand through those days.

After our sacrifice in 2016, we wrote as follows about the experience of the 30 days following the sacrifice. Our knowledge at that time was, in a sense, foreshadowing the period of time of the hour of temptation, for which you will see that there are no 30 earthly portions provided.

We’ve had special portions of the Holy Spirit for the entire duration of the judgment of the living… We lacked portions only for the 30 days on the high plateau. We received little new light at that time. Was it a court recess? Was it a short vacation that God granted us to enjoy the view at the summit? Or does it mean that we needed 30 days to get to the other side, to the summit cross, and thereby show that we would hold fast in the faith even under the assumption that we would have to serve a full seven more years? Only when the descent began on November 22, 2016, we received more waves of the second time proclamation. However, it must be stressed that the great rebellion that Brother John spoke about took place exactly at the 30-day summit plateau.

Holy Spirit Portions

We continued, even saying that this may have been a dress rehearsal for a later time. Indeed, it was! And now we see the true time to which it pointed! So if the hour of temptation has no earthly portions allotted, then, apart from the days of that hour, there should be portions for every other day from the beginning of the time of emergency (the judgment of the living) until the day when we may eat from the Tree of Life for our regular portions for eternity! But when is that, exactly? Let’s look briefly at the time following Jesus’ return to discover the answer.

As we have studied before, there are seven days of travel, which now apply from April 27, 2020 until what would feel to the raptured saints like “May 3, 2020”[33] (although time on earth advances through the thousand years as we travel). Then, after sunset of that last travel day, the Sabbath must begin according to the time on earth, because, as was formerly described in the Mystery of the Holy City, this is our seal date—the anniversary of Jesus’ baptism, which includes the Sabbath! That is the 14th day of the 5th month on God’s calendar and would feel like “May 4, 2020” for us.

Travel Days Chart

Following the Sabbath, sunset will usher in Tu B’Av, a special, ancient day of celebration for Israel. Besides being a celebration day for the beginning of the grape harvest, various joyful historical events happened on that day. According to Jewish history, it was a day that, after 40 years with thousands of annual deaths, marked God’s forgiveness for their sin of rejecting the Promised Land on account of the report of the unfaithful spies. Jordan River Throne Line This was comparable only to the forgiveness for the sin of the golden calf, which they received on Yom Kippur. Thus, it has been closely connected with that holiest of Hebrew feast days!

What better way to celebrate the forgiveness for rejecting the earthly Promised Land, than by entering the heavenly Promised Land after the crossing of the “Jordan” on the right throne lines!?[34] The end of the cycle of death that our sins have brought upon us is marked by partaking of the tree of life! That will be a day of tremendous rejoicing!

Furthermore, Tu B’Av was a memorial of the restoration of the tribe of Benjamin by allowing them to “catch a wife” from among the daughters of the other tribes (see Judges 21). It is said that this association is partly why it has become a “great day for weddings” among Jews today! Apparently, the Lord guided in that ancient development and chose the same date for His own wedding feast!

This is when the great wedding feast will take place and Jesus will partake of the grape juice after His long abstinence since the last supper with His disciples! Thus, the portions must reach to that day, “May 5, 2020”. To make it clearer, we can modify our timeline to show the full arrangement of the available portions, where the three white areas would need to be supplied:

Rations for the Last Days

If we then determine how many days there are between April 6, 2019 and the wedding feast, we find that the difference is 395 days.[35] Then we subtract the 30 days of the hour of temptation. The provision for that time is not on earth, but in heaven, where His army—the 144,000 and the specially resurrected ones—are granted a 30-day provision of bread for the battle ahead. They will be taught by Jesus and the members of Philadelphia that have already faithfully studied the message.

Finally, we add the seven days where Jesus stands between the two 1260-day periods, since there should also be portions there.

The result is that there are exactly 372 portions that would provide for the entire time, except for the testing hour, when the hearts of men on earth will be tried! This is an exciting result for one special reason: This is exactly the number of portions that we have available from the autumn sacrifices that we never used! It is incredible how precise God is! Now every single day of our time of emergency is accounted for with the exact provision of God in the ancient sacrificial system!

There are three sources of daily rations, which we can summarize as follows:

  • Spring sacrifices: 51 portions – used between Jesus’ death and ascension (as the example)

  • Autumn sacrifices: 372 portions – white areas in diagram above

  • Ezekiel’s temple vision: doubled 1260 portions[36] – colored bands in the diagram above

The exactness of God’s time is so astounding that we gasp in amazement! Think about it! These dates are based on the Orion plagues cycle, which was doubled, and is not in any way based on the prescribed portions of flour and oil in the sacrificial system! This is a completely independent biblical witness to the correctness of the study!

May it be of encouragement to all of God’s children to understand that even when having to face the most difficult time ahead, God has made provision for it if we take hold of His promises and walk by faith and not by sight.

Conquering and to Conquer

And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. (Revelation 6:2)

The end of the hour of temptation on January 20, 2020 (the Saiph point on the Orion clock, which corresponds to the white horse rider) will be the time when the loud cry[37] will be made amid the destruction that will have been brought upon the world. God will send His faithful army back to earth to strengthen all those who will sincerely hear the message of hope and take up their cross following Jesus all the way to the point of sealing their testimony for Him with their lives.

Of this time, it was prophesied that:

When the storm of persecution really breaks upon us, the true sheep will hear the true Shepherd’s voice... The people of God will draw together, and present to the enemy a united front.... The love of Christ, the love of our brethren, will testify to the world that we have been with Jesus and learned of Him [literally in His presence during the earth’s hour of temptation]. Then will the message of the third angel swell to a loud cry, and the whole earth will be lightened with the glory of the Lord [a reference to the fourth angel of Revelation 18]. {Ev 693.2}

This refers to a very important segment of time in God’s plan where people will be actively called to take a stand for the truth and not to yield and receive the mark of the beast. The fourth angel’s message, which will lighten the whole earth with the understanding of the truth, is the message that has plainly exposed the schemes of Satan’s deception[38] and has given the knowledge of what his mark is[39] and how it is manifesting in the world.

The angel who unites with the third angel is to lighten the whole earth with his glory. The first angel’s message was carried to every mission station in the world, and in some countries there was the greatest religious interest witnessed since the Reformation. But these are to be exceeded by the last warning of the third angel [joined by the fourth angel].

The work will be similar to that of the Day of Pentecost. The “former rain” was given at the opening of the gospel to cause the upspringing of the precious seed; so the “latter rain” will be given at its close for the ripening of the harvest. Hosea 6:3; Joel 2:23. The great work of the gospel is not to close with less manifestation of the power of God than marked its opening. The prophecies which were fulfilled in the outpouring of the former rain at the opening of the gospel are again to be fulfilled in the latter rain at its close. Here are “the times of refreshing” to which the apostle Peter looked forward. Acts 3:19, 20.

Servants of God, their faces shining with holy consecration, will hasten from place to place [from January 20, 2020 on] to proclaim the message from heaven [what they have learned during the hour of temptation in the heavenly feast of light]. Miracles will be wrought, the sick will be healed. Satan also works with lying wonders, even bringing down fire from heaven. Revelation 13:13. Thus the inhabitants of the earth will be brought to take their stand.

The message will be carried not so much by argument as by the deep conviction of the Spirit of God. The arguments have been presented, publications have exerted their influence, yet many have been prevented from fully comprehending the truth. Now the truth is seen in its clearness [fitting for the segment of the white horse rider that represents a pure gospel]. Family connections, church relations are powerless to stay the honest children of God now. Notwithstanding the agencies combined against the truth, a large number take their stand upon the Lord’s side. {HF 371.4-372.3}

Great tribulation is prophesied to continue during this time. Satan has blinded many people to his tactics, but the fall of his Babylonian system will bear witness to his deception.

Kim Jong un’s White Horse rider Satan has even set up his counterfeit “white horse rider”, when in the fourth thunder timeframe we saw dictator Kim Jong-un sending a “powerful message” to the world by riding on a white horse on North Korea’s sacred Mount Paektu.[40] This was a highly symbolic action! This news article highlights relevant information about the topic, including the following:

Some experts are worried about “there will be a great operation to strike the world.” After all, Kim said that if North Korea and the US don’t make a deal by the end of the year that it may resume the testing of missiles that could hit America with a nuclear weapon. That could potentially kick off 2017-like worries of war between the two countries.

It is promised that the light of truth will shine forth with such brightness that it will have the effect of dispelling the cloud of darkness of error that has had a strong grip on the earth. The character of Satan’s agents will continue to be exposed in stark contrast to the self-sacrificing love that characterizes God’s children.

God’s army will warn people far and wide not to receive the mark of the beast even at the cost of their physical lives. The abominations of Babylon will be laid bare for all to see, and she will continue to suffer the effects of the plagues that have been poured upon her. A loud call to come out of Babylon will be made during this segment, inviting all those whose hearts were prepared before the investigative judgment ended, to vindicate God’s character. His people must firmly stand for the truth, testify for His justice by acknowledging His guidance, and endure the tribulation without blaspheming God as the wicked do when God’s judgments fall upon them.

The understanding of why the judgments of God are falling will turn many to righteousness as promised in Daniel 12:3.[41] They will be kept from blaspheming God for the suffering they are enduring by comprehending the reason for the turmoil on the earth and what is required from God’s children to testify on His behalf during this time: patient endurance and trust!

This is a high time to testify for God and His justice. He has given ample time and warning about what is happening in the world, so that it does not take us by surprise. He is calling each of us to be faithful and endure until the end, looking up to His heavenly clock indicating the time when Satan will no longer have dominion on the earth. The time of the birth pangs on the clock is a time when the number of the martyrs must be filled and all the 144,000 must stand firmly for their faith, whatever the cost, being empowered by the guidance and presence of the Spirit as we learned from the distribution of the portions.

As the white horse goes forward and God, through His two armies, conquers the earth, the text of the seventh plague tells us that Babylon has come “in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath,”[42] That wrath culminates at the time when the last three birth pangs have gripped the earth and done their work.

Smiting of the Daniel 2 image A very important end-time prophecy relating to the birth pangs as well as the conquering white horse is that of Daniel 2, with the image of Nebuchadnezzar being smitten by a rock symbolizing the destruction of the Babylonian global economic system and then the establishment of the kingdom of God with the rock that becomes a mountain. We have written about this significant topic in the article The World in Shambles. We recognized that the Brexit is a key indicator of that division of the world powers—in this case, the separation from the EU states. The progressive developments that we have witnessed about the Brexit since its proposal have clearly shown that the affairs of men are guided in time by a God who puts kings in power and also takes them down. All the chaos that has been associated with the Brexit and each postponement since its first deadline of March 29, 2019 for reaching a final deal are evidence of God’s mercy in allowing time for His children to be ready!

The image of Nebuchadnezzar is prophesied to be struck at the feet, representing a time before the separation among the powers, symbolized by the toes.

Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. (Daniel 2:34)

If the UK were successful in reaching a withdrawal from the EU before the destruction of the image, then the prophecy would not fulfill according to the biblical symbolism. Now the deadline of January 31, 2020 that has been set for a Brexit deal is well past the expected fall of the cities of the nations (the striking of the image) at the left throne lines, December 19-22, 2019! Knowing the time on God’s clock helps us understand the significance of things happening in the world and the reasons why they happen the way they do.

The Last Birth Pang

The star Rigel on God’s clock marks March 3, 2020 as the beginning of the last segment before the glorious appearing of Jesus at His second coming on April 27, 2020. This is the time of the last birth pang which will bring turmoil upon the world like it has never experienced before.

We have seen a foretaste of the intense destruction that will be brought during this birth pang as we witnessed the desolation brought by Hurricane Dorian at the Bellatrix point on God’s clock on September 4, 2019. The time indicated by Rigel relates to the part of the seventh plague that says, “And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found”,[43] which indicates great and catastrophic happenings.

Furthermore, the star Rigel is related to the pale horse of Revelation 6, which says,

And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. (Revelation 6:8)

This time calls for a fervent clinging to God’s promises as His judgments upon the world continue to try men’s hearts to the uttermost. As the last birth pang of a woman’s labor increases in pain before the delivery of the baby, this will also be a most intense time for the world, and they will at last recognize too late that it is the judgments of God which are falling upon them.

The plagues of God are coming, but it will not be sufficient for the false shepherds to be tormented with one or two of these plagues. God’s hand at that time will be stretched out still in wrath and justice and will not be brought to Himself again until His purposes are fully accomplished, and the hireling priests are led to worship at the feet of the saints, and to acknowledge that God has loved them because they held fast the truth and kept God’s commandments, and until all the unrighteous ones are destroyed from the earth. {EW 124.1}

As the world experiences destruction and ruin, God’s children will witness the tokens of their deliverance, as was prophesied.

Soon our eyes were drawn to the east, for a small black cloud had appeared, about half as large as a man’s hand, which we all knew was the sign of the Son of man. We all in solemn silence gazed on the cloud as it drew nearer and became lighter, glorious, and still more glorious, till it was a great white cloud. The bottom appeared like fire; a rainbow was over the cloud, while around it were ten thousand angels, singing a most lovely song; and upon it sat the Son of man. His hair was white and curly and lay on His shoulders; and upon His head were many crowns. His feet had the appearance of fire; in His right hand was a sharp sickle; in His left, a silver trumpet. His eyes were as a flame of fire, which searched His children through and through. Then all faces gathered paleness, and those that God had rejected gathered blackness. Then we all cried out, “Who shall be able to stand? Is my robe spotless?” Then the angels ceased to sing, and there was some time of awful silence, when Jesus spoke: “Those who have clean hands and pure hearts shall be able to stand; My grace is sufficient for you.” At this our faces lighted up, and joy filled every heart. And the angels struck a note higher and sang again, while the cloud drew still nearer the earth. {EW 15.2}

The fearful scene before them calls the people of God to search their hearts, acknowledging that in their own strength they are not able to stand during this time. It is only the righteousness of Jesus which they had claimed for themselves that enables them to stand firm, especially during this time. This is a manifestation of the mystery of God. All the subjects of God’s kingdom at this time will reflect His image instead of embracing the image and mark of the beast. They will stand firm in the purity granted to them by their Savior as they have walked with Him and received His instruction. He will impart to them His strength to endure until the end.

To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: (Colossians 1:27)

In sharp contrast, those who rejected God’s warnings and His purifying work in their lives, holding onto the fleeting fame and riches of the world and refusing to leave Babylon, will experience what is described in the text of the sixth seal in Revelation 6:

And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? (Revelation 6:15-17)

They are not given the sweet assurance that is given to God’s subjects: “My grace is sufficient for you” because their question of “who shall be able to stand?” is not based on an acknowledgment of their complete dependence on God, but on a fearful realization of what is transpiring on the earth. They acknowledge at last that what is happening is of a divine origin and not due to climate change problems, as Satan had blinded them to, but it is too late because they did not have a heart of faith to believe in God’s warnings through the cycles on His clock, though they were available for the whole world to learn from as a testimony to His mercy and impending justice.

At Midnight

The end of the seventh thunder and the culmination of the last birth pang is punctuated on the clock as being at the right throne line corresponding to the Father (Alnilam). This holy point on the clock of God in Orion that has warned men cycle after cycle is very significant. We already mentioned that this segment of time in the clock is sacred as it is formed by the stars representing the Godhead. The time when the church of Christ that has made herself ready will be gloriously led out from the world that is in ruins and desolation to the place that He has prepared for her, is described as being midnight—but it is only through the knowledge of God’s clocks that we can understand exactly what “midnight” refers to!

And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. (Matthew 25:6)

It was at midnight that God chose to deliver His people. {EW 285.1}

This revelation is one that beautifully depicts the involvement of God in the deliverance of His people. What is this referring to specifically? This is another mystery that is solved with an understanding of the throne lines on the Orion clock!

We received this understanding on October 19, 2019 during our Sabbath morning worship service. This was very significant, because that day marked the solar anniversary of the date in 2016 when we recognized and offered the sacrificial prayer[44] that God led us to do in order for this message to reach you, dear reader, granting the time for the number of the 144,000 and martyrs to be completed before the coming of Jesus.

We shared the following post in our study forum to relate to the church this amazing harmony on God’s clock:

It has been shown how the Orion clock and the Mazzaroth perfectly mesh at the December 22 throne line. This is when the sun is at the opposite point to the galactic equator crossing of Taurus, where the sun “comes out of his chamber” to shine as the day. That means eventide—darkness—then begins [on December 22, 2019] on the Mazzaroth clock.

But if the sun “sets” at that point, how long is it till midnight? Morning would already dawn on the Mazzaroth clock when the sun leaves Taurus again (which would coincide with the Betelgeuse point of June 22, 2020 on the Orion clock) if Jesus wouldn’t come the midnight before. So, “midnight” must be somewhere on the Orion clock between the throne lines of December 22, 2019 and the Betelgeuse point of June 22, 2020.

Logically, since we are looking at a 12-hour clock, and since “sunset” is at the 12th hour in Jewish language, comparable to 6:00 p.m. for us, then midnight (12:00 a.m.) would be 6 hours later. On a 12-hour wall clock, 6 hours later is always on the opposite side of the dial. That is shown perfectly with the throne lines; opposite of the “sunset” point when darkness begins on December 22, 2019 is the other end of the throne lines: April 27, 2020—the opposite side of the 12-hour dial, 6 hours later, our sought-after “midnight” point!

Indeed, Jesus does come at midnight and prophecy is thus fulfilled and harmonious. If it were not so, our blessed hope for the Second Coming on that day would be in vain! That is why it is so important to restudy “that thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed.”

Midnight on God’s clock

The throne line of April 27, 2020 is the one corresponding to the star Alnilam which represents the Father. He is represented as personally involved in the deliverance of His people by executing His wrath upon the impenitent as described at the end of the text of the seventh plague:

And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great. (Revelation 16:21)

Fireballs at midnight Such perfection of the revelation from God’s clocks can only be accomplished by One who is Time and who has led step by step, showing on the different cycles of His clock, the important events fulfilling the prophecies of Revelation leading to the most blessed time of all when Jesus Himself descends with a shout!

Then Jesus’ silver trumpet sounded, as He descended on the cloud, wrapped in flames of fire. He gazed on the graves of the sleeping saints, then raised His eyes and hands to heaven, and cried, “Awake! awake! awake! ye that sleep in the dust, and arise.” Then there was a mighty earthquake. The graves opened, and the dead came up clothed with immortality. The 144,000 shouted, “Alleluia!” as they recognized their friends who had been torn from them by death, and in the same moment we were changed and caught up together with them to meet the Lord in the air. {EW 16.1}

What a momentous occasion that will be, as God delivers His children when His angels gather them from the earth, and they are caught up together at Jesus’ Second Coming as the fire rains down. This is the blessed hope of His appearing that we can keep close to our hearts through the hard times ahead, so that our faith and strength will not falter, and we can march onward victoriously, sustained by the Holy Spirit until that time. May God be praised for giving the understanding of the times, to thereby encourage His children. Remember His promise:

I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (Matthew 28:20)

The End of Sin and a New Creation

When Jesus returns, gathers His saints amid the great tribulation, and finally delivers them with the resurrected righteous of all ages, He brings them into His kingdom in a week’s time,[45] while Satan is bound on what is left of the earth, having no one remaining who isn’t already hopelessly deceived and dying.

It would be rather unusual if the Lord didn’t act according to the meaning and timing of the feasts on His calendar, so we should look at what feasts could lend their significance at that time! Doing this, we find some fascinating harmonies with what we have formerly studied.[46] But there is also much new insight!

The first and seventh months are the main months for the Jewish feasts. And April 27, 2020 is indeed near the beginning of the first month in Israel, when the feasts connected with Passover are held! But if we consider that because God’s acknowledged temple is located in Paraguay (which, as you know, is in the southern hemisphere, where the seasons are the opposite), there would also be the opposite set of feasts at the same time, being six months offset, according to the calendar from Paraguay!

Thus, both of the main feast months come together, but it is even possible (especially given the terrible conditions on earth at that time) that the requirement to find ripe barley in order to begin the first month could lead to an additional month being appended to the biblical Jewish year, meaning that the month of Jesus’ return would be Adar II in that case. This is interesting because it would bring the feast of Purim into the mix, and the story behind that feast is relevant here. It comes after the Holy City lands for the wedding feast and the wicked masses from all generations are raised from the dead in the Second Resurrection, a time when prophecy indicates that Satan will rally his armies to fight against the Holy City in a grand “day of execution” against God’s people as Haman had conspired in the type.

Here is a chart to summarize these three calendar possibilities and compare them with the actual and perceived time and related events:

Calendar possibilities chart

The first thing that catches the eye is perhaps the series of High Sabbaths! Every feast Sabbath becomes a High Sabbath, either due to the time as the saints experience it, or due to the actual time on the earth when we land. And notice that the arrival date at the sea of glass where the coronation of the 144,000 takes place is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement! The atonement is then finally complete as God is united with His people in a most special High Sabbath and holy convocation!

Additionally, Jewish history records that it was on Nissan 10 that the children of Israel crossed the Jordan into the Promised Land, Canaan. This is another perfect harmony, as that is the very day that the righteous will have completed their seven-day crossing of the Jordan of interstellar space to finally enter the true Promised Land, the heavenly Canaan!

Furthermore, after our travel—during which the thousand-year judgment takes place—it is Yom Kippur that also marks the end of the judgment of the wicked. Thus, the wicked are raised on that day as the Holy City descends for landing.

And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished…. (Revelation 20:4-5)

The innumerable masses of the wicked, led by Satan, then surround the city in preparation for attack:

And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison [on account of the resurrection of the wicked], And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city:... (Revelation 20:7-9)

This happens between Yom Kippur and the new moon on “May 20, 2020”. It delineates the prophetic hour of 15 days when the nations give their power to the beast, described earlier in Revelation:

And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. (Revelation 17:12-14)

The nations only receive power with Satan when he is loosed from his prison and they give their strength to serve his purposes to fight against the Holy City, where the Lamb and the faithful safely abide. At no other time is there a more complete antitype of Haman’s death decree than then! The “Jews” represent the righteous within the Holy City, against which the untold billions of the wicked from all ages array themselves to attack it, capture it, and destroy the righteous within it. This is the ultimate death threat!

But as they approach the city, they are made aware of their deceived state and Jesus is crowned the rightful King of kings and Lord of lords. Then His victory is complete, and the judgment is executed; the new month devours them[47]—the first day of the sixth month, “May 20, 2020”:

…and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. (Revelation 20:9)

We see from the chart that that very day is also marked on the extended Orion clock, according to the saints’ experience of time (being the ones who are watching the clock)! Since the beginning of the Orion Message, we have understood that Bellatrix is associated with the third seal (being the third outer star clockwise from Saiph), and of that seal, we read:

And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. (Revelation 6:5)

The balances are a picture of judgment, and this star marks the very day when the sentence will be executed against the wicked. When Jesus is crowned in the sight of everyone who has ever lived, He who said in the beginning, “Let there be light”, now gives the final and just reward to the wicked: the darkness of eternal non-existence, as the “universal projector”[48] that shines them into transient being is powered down—whereas all the righteous were already resurrected and/or translated to the realms of eternal light. The wicked have been weighed and found wanting, and their reward is then meted out in perfect harmony with the intrinsic significance of that star on the clock, Bellatrix!

Then the wicked saw what they had lost; and fire was breathed from God upon them and consumed them. This was the execution of the judgment. The wicked then received according as the saints, in unison with Jesus, had meted out to them during the one thousand years. The same fire from God that consumed the wicked purified the whole earth. The broken, ragged mountains melted with fervent heat, the atmosphere also, and all the stubble was consumed. Then our inheritance opened before us, glorious and beautiful, and we inherited the whole earth made new. We all shouted with a loud voice, “Glory; Alleluia!” {EW 54.1}

The coronation of Jesus

Besides being the Bellatrix point the clock, this day of the final eradication of sin, “May 20, 2020” is also marked very appropriately by another biblical timeline that provides a “second witness.” In Part I, we noted how the 1290-day timeline of the abomination of desolation began with the election of the pope on March 13, 2013 and continued until September 24, 2016, after which the seventh plague should have brought him to desolation. But the Bible prophecy does not stop with 1290 days!

And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days. (Daniel 12:11-13)

Immediately afterward, it says there would be a waiting period, and it gives a timeframe of 1335 days. Now, God left the prophecy deliberately open to interpretation as to how to apply those days, and we have considered various applications, as have been documented on our websites, each appropriate to, and valid for, the time in which they were given. But we see now that there must be another application that fits this final scenario of God’s time! And it is so simple:

March 13, 2013 + 1290 days + 1335 days = May 20, 2020 (!)

If the simple beauty of this doesn’t call forth a word of praise from your lips, you may not understand what this means! Daniel is to stand in his lot at the end of those days. Does he? The 1335 days point to the blessing of the end of sin and the beginning of a new Creation—a universe without sin! This is the lot that the redeemed—including Daniel—will inherit as their own on that day!

The Sabbath of Eternal Life

The timeline of the days following the Second Coming of Jesus also led to the understanding of an amazing revelation God had enshrouded in those important days on His clock! It is the meaning of the Sabbath in this world and in the world to come that highlights how closely connected it is with Jesus’ work of redemption and salvation and the final victory over sin. As you continue reading, you will recognize the fingerprint of God in manifesting Himself as Time.

Jesus declared Himself the Lord of the Sabbath, and He lived His life as a Jew, honoring God’s Sabbath law as well as the nine more widely accepted commandments. In fact, even in His death, He upheld the Sabbath rest. On that day, the penalty for sin had been paid once for all. The Son of God lay resting in death. What a picture! How great a sacrifice our Savior made, being the very Source of life, yet submitting even to an unjust death. He was an eternal Being suffering the experience of eternal death, not seeing beyond the portals of the tomb. What love is captured there! The Sabbath is a memorial, both of creation and redemption, which required the death of the Creator.

Thus, once sin entered, the Sabbath upon which this creation is based forever afterward pointed to the redemptive death of the Savior. And as we can see from the revelation of Time, all things are founded on His death on the cross. Orion depicts the slain Lamb of God, whose center is Alnitak, The Wounded One.[49] God’s calendar was revealed through a study of the crucifixion,[50] the portions of the Spirit are connected to the sacrifice of Jesus,[51] and the High Sabbath List memorializes His sacrificial character during the time of judgment.[52] Even the seventh “day” of this world’s history, which is as a thousand years, is a time of death on this sin-ravaged planet. That is the wages of sin,[53] and it is encapsulated in the Sabbath.

However, we see from the chart above that the new Creation begins on a Monday. What does that mean? A week that begins with Monday ends with Sunday! Could it be that with the new creation, the Sabbath will take on a new meaning!? Bear in mind that the names of the week are of pagan origin, but biblically, they were simply numbered: the first day, second day, third day, etc. When the earth is created anew, the numeric cycle is simply restarted, preserving the same weekly structure. Thus, it is not that the Sabbath becomes the first day, but rather the meaning of the first day in this world is transferred to the Sabbath in the world to come.

Sabbath Chart

The law of God does not change! The commandment reads the same:

But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: (Exodus 20:10)

Yet through a new creation, the rhythm changes so that what is currently the first day of the week will become the Sabbath rest day. In other words, in the new creation (and not before), we will rest on “Resurrection Sabbath”! We—to whom the Sabbath was given as a sign[54]—will have passed from eternal death to eternal life.

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea…. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. (Revelation 21:1,4)

The things of this earth are passed away, and there shall be no more death. The new creation will be based on the One who is Life,[55] and the cycle of death upon which this universe is based, will itself succumb to the second death.

And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. (Revelation 20:14)

And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. (Revelation 21:5)

Those today who honor the first day of the week instead of God’s seventh-day Sabbath unwittingly say that they want this life to be their eternal life, without victory over sin, without regard for Christ’s death! This is Satan’s way. Sacrifice is not a part of his counterfeit plan, but he promises the benefits of a life without sacrifice.

Jesus’ sacrifice must produce fruit in our hearts: a sacrificial character like His. Only when the final victory over sin is made—when death itself succumbs to the second death as this old universe passes away, then God creates all things new—a new heavens and a new earth—everything! It is a new universe based on victory over sin and the eternal life that Christ purchased for us, and this will be the new memorial of the Sabbath that will be kept for all eternity.

And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord. (Isaiah 66:23)

The reward of the righteous is beyond measure and God’s plan is infinitely wise, but before we may claim the reward, we must submit to a short time of trial as we keep the seventh-day Sabbath in honor of Christ’s death by which salvation comes, until He makes all things new! Until then, we must drink the cup.

For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come. (1 Corinthians 11:26)

The Crown of Christ

The message that was prophesied to lighten the world with the glory of God at the most crucial point in the history of the world is the sustaining bread for these last days. The personal care and involvement of God in faithfully revealing His secrets to a studying and persevering remnant has made it possible for the world to be illuminated with the heavenly light. Darkness cannot prevail!

The messenger of God[56] worked tirelessly to study the deep things of God and encourage the church to study and search for the gems of truth in God’s word. It was because of perseverance in discovering the mystery of God that God has granted the understanding that has been presented in this series. The messenger’s task was to prepare God’s remnant church for the work He has for it during this crucial time, and the writing of this article is one aspect of the manifestation of that necessary preparation. God chose for this last part of the series to be written by a woman as a symbol of His church. He uses human instrumentalities to convey His messages.

A church that is ready to meet its Lord is the measurement for success of the message. The fourth angel’s message presented on this website has the message of righteousness by faith at its center, expressed in a self-sacrificing attitude that permeates the lives of those in whose hearts the message is embraced. Fearful will be the realization of many who have spurned the heavenly message, choosing to trust their pastors or their own intellect rather than proving all things and holding fast that which is good.

Because this church was willing to go out on a limb and suffer ridicule, choosing steadfastness rather than wavering, the promise now is that there will be no more delay and that Babylon will at last be destroyed and Jesus will save His people from a world in shambles.

Each of us must remain faithful to our calling in whatever way God has allowed us to testify for Him. It is crucial for His plan that His children do not yield to evil as we endure the time of hardship and trouble as He has revealed will manifest itself even more during the birth pangs before the coming of our Savior. Do not blame God—He has done everything possible to warn and warn and warn through His clocks that this time was approaching. He has exercised longsuffering with sin, ever reaching out to the world in loving entreaty. It is not His fault that people would not listen. His Kingdom is not ruled by force but flourishes through voluntary and selfless service.

The last message to a dying world has the purpose of strengthening the hearts of those who have sincerely yielded their lives to His transforming work and to testify for the veracity of His prophecies. The battle that is being fought between powers of good and evil is great, and Satan will exercise great effort to prevent God’s plans from succeeding. May our Lord’s power alone be manifested in our lives for a testimony in God’s favor.

That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. (Colossians 2:2-3)

When the self-sacrificing character of our Savior is understood through the revelations of Time, it will be exalted above all in recognition of His great deliverance. His clock radiates light that will guide His faithful ones through the time of the birth pangs and safely to the end, despite the tide of trouble that they will face on the way. Dear reader, may your heart’s desire be to testify for God, whatever the cost! It is that sacrificial character manifest in God’s children, drinking from the wellspring of Time, that will bring a conclusive end to the controversy, when the story of sin may finally be closed as described in the following words.

The great controversy is ended. Sin and sinners are no more. The entire universe is clean. One pulse of harmony and gladness beats through the vast creation. From Him who created all, flow life and light and gladness, throughout the realms of illimitable space. From the minutest atom to the greatest world, all things, animate and inanimate, in their unshadowed beauty and perfect joy, declare that God is love [and Time]. {GC 678.3}

God confirmed this date of the beginning of the baptism of the Holy Spirit through prophetic words and visions . One of our forum members had a vision on October 22/23 where he heard the voice of a man who said: “the baptism of the Holy Spirit begins.” On the same day Byron Searle had a prophetic word also related to the topic called “Hearken to the trumpet”.

The Great Cycle (1), the Judgment cycle (2), the preparatory trumpets (3) and plagues cycles (4), the sounding trumpets (5) and plagues cycles (6), and the present cycle of the thunders (7). 
Not counting the two longest cycles that point to years instead of days, there are nine specific dates on each of the five remaining clocks (9 × 5 = 45). (The last three clocks form one continuous timespan, such that the beginning of the last two clocks is the same date as the end of the previous clock, respectively, but these are compensated by two additional dates at the end to account for the filled cup of seven segments for Babylon’s double reward as described in Part I.) 
There are twelve constellations in a circle along the ecliptic like a clock, which the sun traverses fully once per year. Each constellation therefore represents one hour on this clock, which corresponds to one prophetic month.

We see a foreboding of this complete economic collapse as the Vatican (the richest state in the world per capita) is exposed as being at risk of default by 2023 and that, due to the decline in donations triggered by the sex abuse scandal! This is a very important year predicted for the complete economic collapse of the Vatican because in 2016 when we made the Sacrifice of Philadelphia, we anticipated that seven lean years would elapse from that point and that leads to 2023.
