The Last Countdown

In our previous article, The Beast from the Bottomless Pit, I showed how Jesuit Pope Francis is the new Roman General Titus, taking his position on the world stage to besiege the people of God. Furthermore, our studies showed that an important event initiating the time of trouble would come thirty days later, on April 13, and we even set our countdown to that very date! Does it surprise you that the head of the Roman army has just assembled his captains around the world for battle? Lo, and behold, Pope Francis identified the leaders of his forces on the very day. This first significant act of Pope Francis is a “bombshell” according to the news outlets, which also recognize the scope of this move:

Pope Francis marked his first month as pope on Saturday by naming nine high-ranking prelates from around the globe to a permanent advisory group to help him run the Catholic Church and study a reform of the Vatican bureaucracy — a bombshell announcement that indicates he intends a major shift in how the papacy should function. (Associated Press)

What “major shift” do you suppose he intends exactly? Ellen White had a clear perspective on this:

And let it be remembered, it is the boast of Rome that she never changes. The principles of Gregory VII and Innocent III are still the principles of the Roman Catholic Church. And had she but the power, she would put them in practice with as much vigor now as in past centuries. Protestants little know what they are doing when they propose to accept the aid of Rome in the work of Sunday exaltation. While they are bent upon the accomplishment of their purpose, Rome is aiming to re-establish her power, to recover her lost supremacy. Let the principle once be established in the United States that the church may employ or control the power of the state; that religious observances may be enforced by secular laws; in short, that the authority of church and state is to dominate the conscience, and the triumph of Rome in this country is assured. {GC 581}

It is interesting that several of the new advisory group members are of a dubious character and their selection for such a position is being sharply criticized by the public. Do you really think that these characters were selected to give the pope advice? Or is the pope the one who intends to “advise” his commanders on the battle front? Pope Francis himself has had a dark past, although there has been a concerted effort to re-write it ever since his election. Those interested might find this recent BBC interview helpful.

Babylonian Winged LionThis whole question of character strikes at the heart of the above quote from The Great Controversy. Rome has been like a sleeping lion for centuries. Apparently amiable, but watch out! She has been silently preparing for this hour, to spring into action. It is clear that Rome has succeeded in “re-establishing her power and recovering her lost supremacy”. The fact that she is taking such bold steps now against sharp popular criticism testifies to the fact.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: (1 Peter 5:8)

I’ll tell you a little later who woke up the sleeping lion, but first I want to emphasize how important the date of April 13 really was.

What’s Your Schedule?

There were other things that “coincidentally” happened on the same day. A giant statue of Pope John Paul II was unveiled in Poland. I mentioned in my previous article how Pope John Paul II was the reference point for the chronology of Revelation 17:10. He was the first non-Italian pope in over 450 years, and played a major role in preparing the world for these last “rapid movements”. The unveiling of his statue on the date of April 13 has great significance, recognizing his role in preparing the way for both Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis. On the very day that Pope Francis identified the captains of his world-wide army, Pope John Paul II was recognized by a statue with outstretched arms reminiscent of the giant statue of Jesus in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Can you see a subliminal meaning in that?

We’ve also noted for some time that the annual spring meeting of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists was to span April 13. Do you think the Jesuit-controlled leadership of the Adventist church picked that date by coincidence? I think not. Have you noticed how hush-hush everything was prior to the meeting this year? It is also interesting that (Jesuit) Ted Wilson spoke to the effect that he doesn’t want any more church anniversaries…a little tongue-in-cheek prophetical wool pulled over the eyes of the average Ted Wilson devotee. They know what’s going down.

In a recent audio interview about Pope Francis, Pastor Walter Veith clearly explains that the Vatican makes its major moves according to a time plan. This is evident in many ways, like by the fact that on the February 10 page of a desktop comic calendar, the pope’s retirement was illustrated in humorous form. The calendar was illustrated, produced, and sold in August of 2012, well before he supposedly recognized the weakness of his age. If the enemies of God are working to a well-defined time schedule, how is it that the people who are supposedly on God’s side claim that there is no more time prophecy, and that even their Commander Jesus Himself doesn’t know when things will happen?! The very idea is absurd.

The Vatican works according to a time schedule because it has no choice:

Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. (Revelation 12:12)

I will show you in clear terms from the book of Daniel exactly what divine schedule the Vatican is obliged to work within.

A King’s Conversion

Daniel 4 records Nebuchadnezzar’s dream about the tree being cut down, and his banishment from the kingdom for “seven times” or seven years.

This is the interpretation, O king, and this is the decree of the most High, which is come upon my lord the king: That they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field, and they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and they shall wet thee with the dew of heaven, and seven times shall pass over thee, till thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will. And whereas they commanded to leave the stump of the tree roots; thy kingdom shall be sure unto thee, after that thou shalt have known that the heavens do rule. (Daniel 4:24-26)

The fact that the words of a Babylonian king are part of the Word of God shows that it is beyond mere history. There is actually important information in his testimony for us. We know from Nebuchadnezzar’s experience as recorded in the book of Daniel that those seven years were literally fulfilled, but now we will see that his prophetic dream has further application for the people of God.

As shown in the 7 Steps to Eternity article, “seven times” in prophetic terms translates to 2520 literal years. Could it be that the prophecy of Nebuchadnezzar is related to the 2520 prophecy which began in 677 B.C. with the carrying away of Manasseh? Let’s compare Nebuchadnezzar and Manasseh:

Nebuchadnezzar vs. ManassehFigure 1 – Comparison of Nebuchadnezzar vs. Manasseh

As Figure 1 shows, there is a remarkable correlation between Nebuchadnezzar’s experience and that of Manasseh. This did not happen by accident. Because of his wickedness in the earlier years of his reign, Manasseh brought the punishment of God upon the children of Israel to scatter them among the heathen. In execution of that punishment, Daniel among many others were carried away to Babylon.

However, God promised Israel that if they would seek him, He would put the curse upon their enemies, and He did that very thing during Daniel’s time. It is in the context of the punishment for the sins that Manasseh provoked the children of Israel to commit that Nebuchadnezzar’s experience took place.

And the LORD thy God will put all these curses upon thine enemies, and on them that hate thee, which persecuted thee. (Deuteronomy 30:7)

Thus we have a clear connection between the “seven times” experience of Nebuchadnezzar and the 2520 years of the scattering of Israel. Nebuchadnezzar’s experience in Daniel 4 parallels Manasseh’s experience, which in turn fulfills the curse of Leviticus 26. The period of “seven times” is repeated four times in Daniel 4 (vs. 16, 23, 25, 32) just like it is repeated four times in Leviticus 26 (vs. 18, 21, 24, 28). However, there is an important difference in the Hebrew construction of the term.

The word “seven times” in Leviticus is a translation of a single Hebrew word, which more correctly means “sevenfold” as a matter of intensity more so than time. The critics of the 2520 prophecy often cite this as one reason to discount the prophecy, and those who presume to base the 2520 prophecy solely on Leviticus 26 do have a weak foundation for it.

The Orion Clock confirms the 2520 prophecy, which is indeed a true time prophecy that already reached its fulfillment in 1844. Its true basis does not come from Leviticus 26, but rather Daniel 4. The latter actually does indicate seven times or seven years as a matter of literal as well as prophetic time. That fact is obvious from the context as well as from the usage of the Hebrew language.

The Fall of Babylon

Daniel was alive and witness to the fall of Babylon. Shortly prior, he understood that the end of the Babylonian captivity was nearing as prophesied by Jeremiah. He understood that the curse of Leviticus 26 had been transferred to the Babylonians. Therefore, when he was called to interpret the handwriting on the wall before Belshazzar, he immediately understood its significance:

Weighed and Found WantingFigure 2 – The Handwriting on the Wall

The curse upon Babylon was consummated at the time of Belshazzar. Whereas the “seven times” of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream are linked by the typological relationship to the beginning of the 2520 years in 677 B.C., the reference to the 2520 prophecy in the handwriting on the wall links the fall of ancient Babylon to the termination of the 2520 years in 1844. That is when God gathered his people together once again after the curse had been executed, as He promised:

That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee. (Deuteronomy 30:3)

After the fall of Babylon, the captivity of the children of Israel soon ended officially under the decrees of Cyrus, Darius, and Artaxerxes (see Ezra 6:14). Thus we have in the history of Babylon a complete prophetic picture of the 2520 prophecy from beginning to end.

At this point, you might be wondering what all of this has to do with Pope Francis and the representatives he has selected for every continent. I am sure that such a Jesuit as Pope Francis will never convert and “praise and extol and honor the King of heaven” like King Nebuchadnezzar did after his conversion!

The Four Timelines of Daniel 12

God’s word is well organized. The prophetic books in particular contain prophecies which are often given in a chiasmic form, where the beginning corresponds to the end as if the latter part is a reflection of the earlier part. This principle can be easily seen across the Bible as a whole: the Bible begins with the Garden of Eden, and ends with the new earth (Eden restored).

Looking at the book of Daniel alone as a chiasm, we find that the first time-prophecies are located in Daniel 4, and the last time-prophecies are located in Daniel 12. Studying those two chapters together gives us a solid foundation for the interpretation of current events.

Just as there are four references to the “seven times” in Daniel 4, there are also four timelines given in Daniel 12:

  1. 168 years in the oath in symbolic form (verse 7) as explained in the Orion presentation
  2. 1260 years, or a prophetic “time, times, and an half” (verse 7)
  3. 1290 years, or prophetically “a thousand two hundred and ninety days” (verse 11)
  4. 1335 years, or a prophetic “thousand three hundred and five and thirty days” (verse 12)

These time periods (with the exception of the 168 years) are well known within Adventism. The classical interpretation of the timelines places them as shown a little later in Figure 4, with the 168 years of the Orion message added to complete the picture of Daniel 12. Before we look at the timelines, however, let’s study the chiasm in Daniel.

Taking a closer look at the time prophecies in both chapters, we find that there is a 1-to-1 correlation between the seven times of Daniel 4 and the timelines of Daniel 12:

Chiasm of Daniel 4 and 12Figure 3 – Chiasm of Daniel 4 and 12

The fact that the “seven times” is mentioned four times in chapter 4 confirms that the 168 years hidden in the oath in chapter 12 count as a fourth time prophecy in addition to the other three which are stated in plain terms. Furthermore, the fact that the 2520 prophecy is known to have been fulfilled both in literal time and prophetic time shows that all four of the timelines of Daniel 12 should have both a literal and prophetic application as well.

“Power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.” And, says the prophet, “I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death.” And again: “He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword.” The forty and two months are the same as the “time and times and the dividing of time,” three years and a half, or 1260 days, of Daniel 7—the time during which the papal power was to oppress God’s people. This period, as stated in preceding chapters, began with the supremacy of the papacy, A.D. 538, and terminated in 1798. At that time the pope was made captive by the French army, the papal power received its deadly wound, and the prediction was fulfilled, “He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity.” {GC 439}

… Though a new pope was soon afterward elected, the papal hierarchy has never since been able to wield the power which it before possessed. {GC 266}

It is interesting that Ellen White associated the deadly wound with the inability to “wield the power” which the papacy before possessed. The healing of the wound was demonstrated on April 13, 2013 by the wielding of power across all of the world continents through the appointment of the papal advisors!

Figure 4 shows the relationship of the timelines according to the classical interpretation of Daniel 12 as the Adventist pioneers understood it, applying the day-for-year principle. The 168 years is also illustrated for completeness, but of course our pioneers had no understanding of that in their day.

Day-for-Year Application of Daniel 12Figure 4 – Day-for-Year Application of Daniel 12

Prophetic vs. Literal Application of Daniel 12

If we scrutinize the classical interpretation of the timelines of Daniel 12, several problems become apparent. The most glaring problem is that the 1335 years terminate in 1843, not 1844, regardless of the zero-year issue. How can such a mismatch be a proper fulfillment of the verse that confers a blessing to those who reach its mark? Was the first phase of disappointment in 1843 really the “blessing” that the angel told Daniel about? Was the rise of the papacy at the beginning of the 1335 years a blessing to the people of God? In no case can we say with certainty that the 1335 years as it was classically interpreted is a perfect fulfillment of Daniel 12:12. It is also quite telling that Ellen White did not write about the fulfillment of the 1335 years in any of her expositions of Bible prophecy.

Ellen White was also very quiet about the 1290 and 1260 years of Daniel 12, and she urged us to study that chapter, implying that we as a people did not yet possess a complete understanding of it. We must therefore conclude that the classical interpretation, while it might be valid as a partial fulfillment, was in no wise the complete or final fulfillment of Daniel 12.

Thinking back to Daniel 4 and Nebuchadnezzar’s “seven times,” and noting that the seven times (2520 literal days) were literally fulfilled as a matter of history, we see that it is correct to interpret the timelines of Daniel 12 in literal terms for our day as well.

Literal Day Application of Daniel 12Figure 5 - Literal Day Application of Daniel 12

Pope Benedict XVI’s farewell on February 27, 2013 exactly marked 1335 days until the Second Coming. It is of special interest how the 1290 and 1260 were marked in the classical interpretation by similar events to today.

In 508, the conversion of Clovis brought the head of an army into union with the Church. On March 13, 2013, the election of Jesuit Pope Francis corresponds exactly to that example, in the union of a Jesuit head of the Church.

30 years later in 538, the conquest of the Goths in the name of Justinian left the Church unchallenged as the world power. Similarly, Pope Francis selected his panel of world leaders on April 13, 2013, exactly 30 days into his pontificate. His announcement and intention to re-write the “constitution” of the papacy has parallels in Justinian’s decree and his codifying of the Roman law. Justinian affirmed the pope’s authority of all the churches, and authorized him to punish “heretics.” The pope’s declaration on April 13 also asserts his authority over all the churches, and time will tell the rest.

The Jesuit Organization

The Society of Jesus is organized into ten “assistancies” under the Superior General (see The Jesuit Curia in Rome). Pope Francis selected 8 cardinals and 1 bishop for his leadership. The bishop serving as secretary will undoubtedly become a cardinal too. That makes only 9, but there is more to the story. In fact, the ten assistancies are as follows:

  1. South Europe Assistancy
  2. South Latin America Assistancy
  3. South Asia Assistancy
  4. Central and Eastern Europe Assistancy
  5. Africa Assistancy
  6. Asia Pacific Assistancy
  7. USA Assistancy
  8. North Latin America Assistancy
  9. West Europe Assistancy

Wait a minute…aren’t there supposed to be ten? Take a closer look at number four and notice that two separate assistancies have been named together. Keep that in mind.

Associating the cardinals with the assistancies, we find the following:

  1. Giuseppe Bertello, president of the Vatican City State governorate (Italy)
  2. Francisco Javier Errázuriz Ossa (Chile)
  3. Oswald Gracias (India)
  4. Reinhard Marx (Germany)
  5. Laurent Monsengwo Pasinya (Democratic Republic of the Congo)
  6. George Pell (Australia)
  7. Seán Patrick O’Malley (United States)
  8. Óscar Andrés Rodríguez Maradiaga (Honduras)
  9. Bishop Marcello Semeraro, acting secretary for the group (Italy)

Now take a look at how many European Assistancies there are: South, Central, Eastern, and West—four in total. Therefore, we would expect to see four cardinals representing Europe, but only three were explicitly named on April 13. Who could be the fourth, who would take either the Central or Eastern Europe Assistancy? Other intelligent minds have already identified him:

  1. Adolfo Nicolás (Spain)

He also holds the position known as the “black pope” or the Superior General of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), clearly a necessary element and the hidden tenth ruler of the Jesuit pope’s new group. Why would Pope Francis be so careful to avoid naming all ten leaders openly at once? Perhaps to avoid drawing attention to his Jesuit power structure, or maybe just because it would be an overly obvious fulfillment of Bible prophecy!

The ten leaders were prophesied in Revelation 17, expanding the interpretation given in the previous article:

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. (Revelation 17:12)

These ten kings do not represent the secular powers of the world, but more accurately the leaders of the Roman Church who were selected to span the continents of the world! This prophecy is fulfilled before your very eyes, and their intention is made abundantly clear:

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 17:14)

It is interesting to note once again how the fulfillment of prophecy in 2013 compares to our experience in 2012. At the commencement of the 1260 days of the Judgment of the Living in 2012, we began to see how many leaders were in our group. Now the counterfeit system has announced its leaders at the beginning of the Time of Trouble.

All of the pieces of Daniel 12 have fallen into place. Remember that the “Judgment” clock of Orion runs 168 years from the Day of Atonement in 1844 to the Day of Atonement in 2012. Furthermore, it was explained in previous articles that the Day of Atonement in 2012 was special in about seven different ways, not the least of which was the fact that it was Jesus’ actual 2016th birthday. From that day forward, the timelines of Daniel 12 take on their literal application.

New Jerusalem, the City of God

What we have in Figure 6 is another rough chiasm, with the sevenfold High Sabbath and 2016th birthday of Jesus at the pinnacle. Under Jesus is the 168 years/days of Orion, and under Orion is the 1260 years/days of papal oppression. It all began with the rise of the papacy after the First Advent, and it will all end with the fall of the papacy just prior to the Second Advent.

Year/Day ChiasmFigure 6 – Year/Day Chiasm

By this time, readers with an acute visual sense and some knowledge of occult symbolism might begin to question the deeper meaning of the chiasm structure in general. Remember that for every genuine, Satan has a counterfeit. The occult fascination with pyramid structures and the placement of the all-seeing eye at the top represents Satan’s attempt to usurp the throne of the universe from God. Satan was there, and he knows what it’s like:

Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. (Ezekiel 28:14)

The throne of God sits atop a mountain. The pyramid geometry is a replica of the Holy City, which also lies four-square:

And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. (Revelation 21:16)

Now the occult symbolism of 13 steps to the top of the pyramid makes sense: it is Satan’s counterfeit one-upmanship compared to the 12 foundations of the Holy City. He wants to ascend to the throne of God at the top of the Holy City.

For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: (Isaiah 14:13)

Friends, the City of God is real, and it isn’t anything like the New World Order with its spy drones, repressive laws, compelling of conscience, and all the rest of it. It is beautiful, pure, holy, and undefiled.

But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. (Revelation 21:8)

The question to be answered in sincerity by each soul is: Where do I stand?

Who Woke the Sleeping Lion?

We’ve been the faithful watchman on the wall, blowing the warning trumpet for over a year. Has Jerusalem heard our alarms? Have the people taken heed and prepared themselves for the spiritual battle?

While the children of God are kept lulled in indolent slumber, the enemies of God have perked up their ears to hear “tidings” from the Orion study and the Vessel of Time.

But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many. (Daniel 11:44)

It is the time schedule of God that has awakened the enemy! The tidings trouble him, because he knows he has only a short time to accomplish his objective of world domination. The very next topic introduced after that verse is the time of trouble, the setting of Daniel 12.

Folks, the lion is awake. The enemy knows the schedule he must work within. After Benedict’s resignation, the Vatican planners admitted that they needed a new pope before the Easter holidays. They’ve been counting their days. Are you counting your days? Or are you like someone who recently told me that they are too busy struggling with basic faith in Jesus to worry about “timelines”?

Let me ask you a question: what do you think the next step will be? We’ve got the Jesuit (Roman) Army General on scene in the person of Pope Francis. We’ve got the ten captains of his army in place around the world. We’ve got multitudes upon multitudes of Catholic folk around the globe to serve as “footmen” under the new organization. What is the next step?

By the way, are you aware that there is another “Francis” besides the St. Francis that Pope Francis is supposedly named after? St. Francis is the figure for the public. For the insiders, his name is Francis Xavier, and his story is startling:

Being a co-founder of the Jesuit Society, Xavier was naturally an automatic believer in the Society’s dictum that “the end sanctifies the means”. He could not tolerate what was known as “Jewish wickedness”, such as Sabbath-keeping and refraining from eating pork, nor did he like the Moslems who regarded swine flesh with abhorrence and the Roman Catholics as idolaters. So, in the true spirit of Romanism, he opted for tried and tested methods of fear and force to coerce such people into conforming to the “true faith.” On May 16, 1545 he wrote to D. Joao III, King of Portugal as follows: “The second necessity for Christians is that your majesty establish the Holy inquisition, because there are many who live according to the Jewish Law and according to the Mahomedan sect, without fear of God or shame of the world.” (Siva Redo). (Cited by A.K. Priolkar - “The Goa Inquisition” pp.23,24, 1961).

Now it becomes evident that the poor loyal masses of St. Francis are intended to serve as the spiritual infantry under the influence of Francis Xavier to compass the people of God.

The next date for our countdown is the date of April 27, the day of the wave sheaf offering according to the true calendar. The first siege of Jerusalem in 66 A.D. was around the fall feasts. The second siege, which is the type for our time, was around the spring feasts.

Terrible were the calamities that fell upon Jerusalem when the siege was resumed by Titus. The city was invested at the time of the Passover, when millions of Jews were assembled within its walls. Their stores of provision, which if carefully preserved would have supplied the inhabitants for years, had previously been destroyed through the jealousy and revenge of the contending factions, and now all the horrors of starvation were experienced. A measure of wheat was sold for a talent. So fierce were the pangs of hunger that men would gnaw the leather of their belts and sandals and the covering of their shields. Great numbers of the people would steal out at night to gather wild plants growing outside the city walls, though many were seized and put to death with cruel torture, and often those who returned in safety were robbed of what they had gleaned at so great peril. The most inhuman tortures were inflicted by those in power, to force from the want-stricken people the last scanty supplies which they might have concealed. And these cruelties were not infrequently practiced by men who were themselves well fed, and who were merely desirous of laying up a store of provision for the future. {GC 31}

As we can learn from the past, the siege begins the time of trouble. Folks, it has begun. Count every day as a blessing until you feel the effects of it!

After speaking of the end of the world, Jesus comes back to Jerusalem, the city then sitting in pride and arrogance, and saying, “I sit a queen, and shall see no sorrow” (see Revelation 18:7). As his prophetic eye rests upon Jerusalem, he sees that as she was given up to destruction, the world will be given up to its doom. The scenes that transpired at the destruction of Jerusalem will be repeated at the great and terrible day of the Lord, but in a more fearful manner.... {3SM 417}

[Note: Later we learned that The Sign of Jonah was given to the Church as a signal of the beginning of the siege on April 27, 2013. The series The Wrath of God unveiled what would be the cause of the plagues on the great and terrible day of the Lord.]

Revelation gives a picture of the First Woe, a special five-month phase of the time of trouble in the Fifth Trumpet of the Orion Clock:

And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter. (Revelation 9:1-12)

The opening of the bottomless pit in the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI and the smoke rising from the Sistine Chapel at the election of Pope Francis set the stage for the multitudes (seas) of people like locusts to attack apostate Christendom soon (compare also Jeremiah 51). During this time the locusts (Islam?) will only be allowed to “hurt” and not “kill” which means that no full-fledged war will have broken out yet. That does not mean there won’t be suffering and death: for “five months” the world will be “hurt”. Notice that it is five months:

5 months × 30 days/month = 150 days

The period of 150 days also represents the ten leaders that were put in place on April 13 to reign one hour with the beast. One hour of prophetic time is 15 days. Allowing 15 days per head results in a total of 150 days. Did you notice that the first “horn” wasted no time to act? Two days after the announcement, the Boston bombing was carried out right in Seán Patrick O’Malley’s archbishopric!

Abaddon or Apollyon means “destruction” (Hebrew) or “destroying angel” (Greek).

The Israelites obeyed the directions that God had given. Swiftly and secretly they made their preparations for departure. Their families were gathered, the paschal lamb slain, the flesh roasted with fire, the unleavened bread and bitter herbs prepared. The father and priest of the household sprinkled the blood upon the doorpost, and joined his family within the dwelling. In haste and silence the paschal lamb was eaten. In awe the people prayed and watched, the heart of the eldest born, from the strong man down to the little child, throbbing with indefinable dread. Fathers and mothers clasped in their arms their loved first-born as they thought of the fearful stroke that was to fall that night. But no dwelling of Israel was visited by the death-dealing angel. The sign of blood—the sign of a Saviour’s protection—was on their doors, and the destroyer entered not. {PP 279}

The Fifth Trumpet is connected to the Passover, when the children of Israel were spared from the plague of death that devastated the families of Egypt. Only those will be protected in the time of the Fifth Trumpet and First Woe who have the blood of Jesus on their doors that He is pleading with in Orion for them! Once again, I urge each of you to review our Final Warning series of articles, search your soul, and observe the Lord’s Supper at the appointed time.

We correctly nailed the date of three major prophetic events this year. Don’t disregard the fourth! The Time of Trouble has commenced. The Fifth Trumpet will sound, and a world reeling from devastation will soon cry out for the establishment of the Sunday Law to supposedly pacify God’s fury.

[Note: In the fall of 2014, we realized when this fifth trumpet actually took place and who the acting powers were. The article Last Call also shows that the sixth trumpet of the judgment cycle is already sounding and that it is now more than ever true what we wrote as a final sentence of this article:]

NOW is the time to ACT! If you are waiting for the Sunday Law, it will be TOO LATE!
