The Last Countdown

Originally published on Thursday, 10 March, 2011 02:45 in German at www.letztercountdown.org

I read every email that reaches me and comment on it because I want to do my part to find the remnant of the remnant. I received mail from Adventists who were new in the faith, and were attracted almost magically to sites like those of the Moon Sabbath Keepers. I explained in detail that our seventh-day Sabbath really has nothing in common with the Lunar Sabbath propagated by those false teachers. It still depends on the creation week when God introduced the seven-day cycle, and this cycle has never been interrupted.

One of my readers thanked me for the clarification only to throw out the Orion message and the Fourth Angel's message, which are from God, with the dirty bath water of the Lunar Sabbath Keepers because some pastors and elders still do not know how to correctly interpret the statements of Ellen White in regard to time messages during the period of the Fourth Angel. With the arguments presented here, I finally convinced him on a biblical basis that the message of the Fourth Angel indeed comes from Orion proclaiming the time of Jesus' coming.

At the time of this writing I was actually working on finishing the Shadow Series, but I had a lot more to say to my opponents in regard to the accusation of "time setting". Although my schedule was incredibly tight, I took time to offer here the explanations as to why there is still indeed a time message which bears the seal of God.

Ellen White said in Volume 1 of her Testimonies:

I saw that God tested His people upon time in 1844, but that no time which has since been set has borne the special marks of His hand. {1T 409.1}

This statement has always kept the possibility open that a time message could come again that "would bear the special marks of the hand of Jesus". Those who don't understand why I believe that the message of God's voice from the Orion "bears the special marks of His hand" should carefully re-read slides 169-178 of the Orion presentation.

I'm trying to portray this subject as detailed as possible so as to remove any lingering doubts as to whether the time has come for us to have time prophecy again. I will establish this on a biblical foundation. I will show that this can be asserted in perfect harmony with the many statements of Ellen White against time setting, and does not question either her or God's authority. But, as with any of my articles, I do not claim completeness. All that I give you can and should be understood and tested through private study. This is how we work in our small group and it is the only way that the Holy Spirit can teach you.

I have met many brethren who would send me their questions on a daily basis. They do not want to study for themselves, and even get offended or react grumpily when I just give a few tips for self-study without giving them everything already sliced and diced and served on a silver platter. No friends, you will never get to know your God that way! You must start to work on your own with the Holy Spirit. Maybe then some of you will realize that there is a real Person who wants to live in you, and not just a force. But that is another story and I have already answered hundreds of emails in that regard to the point that I have no desire to write about it. Suffice it to say that I believe what Ellen White said about the Holy Spirit, that He is the third Person of the Godhead. Each individual is tested by the Orion message and for each one of us God has clarifications of erroneous views, so that we—if we accept the correction—can be united in faith. Take the correction or leave it. I will have done my part.

Let's turn to the topic of time setting. Ellen White said so much about it, and it is usually interpreted to mean that there will "never again" be any time prophecy...and every day I get emails with the same statements from Ellen White, which I will elaborate on in the next article. This article forms the basis for understanding why time prophecy comes into effect again right now.

Everything that I will explain to you could be discovered by any avid Bible student as well. But I never receive anything like that from readers. As we all know, even Ellen White has to be tested on the basis of Scripture like any other prophet or messenger of God, and certainly that has been done sufficiently by our church. However, not everything she said is understood perfectly and put into its correct context. If we had reason to believe that Ellen White said something that does not harmonize with the Bible, we would raise a red alert and it would be necessary to tread on that area with all our caution. If Ellen White appeared at odds with the Bible, then it would be our sacred obligation to find the harmony in it.

You know that I consider Ellen White to be the messenger of God, and her testimonies to be God's word. In my life, I try to obey everything she tells us. Following her counsel, I moved to the countryside in Paraguay seven years ago. I not only accepted the health message for my family and myself, but also teach it to all our neighbors and in the schools of the surrounding villages. That is why I wrestled a long time with her time setting statements long before I received them from my opponents by the hundreds in e-mails in three different languages. I assure you I knew all those quotes already. I will present here the solution I discovered for the apparent contradictions in the statements of Ellen White and the Orion message. My original intention was to let the Orion message have its effect on you. I wanted you to go through the same questions I had, so you would be able to pray and ponder as I did and discover the truth for yourself.

I placed many hints for you in the PowerPoint study. I thought you would find them and draw the correct conclusions. But time and again I received mails of excited "Third Angel's message proclaimers" who vehemently fended off what I said with Ellen White quotations. But, what was it actually that they were trying to repress? They were offended by the power of the Fourth Angel, who was sent to help the Third Angel to finish the work! How sad that those brothers and sisters still do not understand what we are taught in Early Writings. Keep on distributing your pamphlets, books, radio and television programs (which is all fine and good), but how small is your faith when you believe that you'll never get real "power"! Go ahead and bring the light to the entire earth without any help from "above" like you have for the last 167 years, and deny the prophesied light of the Fourth Angel for the third and the last time! Some leaders of the General Conference even recognize that we cannot succeed without the help of God. But they go the wrong way too by refusing the God-given light.

This message even separated me from long-time friends who think that the message is not "appropriate" for their particular country, culture, or church members. Friendships ended in tears because they think themselves greater than God, who in His infinite wisdom determines the timing and maturity of the crop, and shows us the message from His throne NOW in the last few minutes of mankind's history according to His Clock. He chose the time. Who are we to dare think that we know better, and would likely delay the message? It is the authority of the Father, the Supreme Judge of the universe, that we are about to receive! Meanwhile they are rejecting it because they do not consider it "suitable" for some of their deep sleeping brethren. They imagine that it would scare them away because the message is too strong for their weak minds, weakened by their own worldliness.

Were the people who denied the First Angel's message, Miller's Midnight Cry, among the saints? What about those who left after the small disappointment of 1843 and did not accept the second time proclamation wave in 1844 under the Second Angel? And will we see any First-day Adventists in heaven, who didn't receive the Sabbath truth of the Third Angel and refused to proclaim it because they believed it would limit their influence to be separate from the majority by going against the universally reverenced Sunday? Are they saints, who think they should proclaim new light only half-heartedly and behind closed doors to only their hand-selected friends because they are worried about a mass of corrupt brethren?

For those who don't want to admit it...even Ellen White doubted the messages for a short time. This is what happened, and it was written for our admonition:

All these things weighed heavily upon my spirits, and in the confusion I was sometimes tempted to doubt my own experience. While at family prayers one morning, the power of God began to rest upon me, and the thought rushed into my mind that it was mesmerism, and I resisted it. Immediately I was struck dumb and for a few moments was lost to everything around me. I then saw my sin in doubting the power of God, and that for so doing I was struck dumb, and that my tongue would be loosed in less than twenty-four hours. A card was held up before me, on which were written in letters of gold the chapter and verse of fifty texts of Scripture. After I came out of vision, I beckoned for the slate, and wrote upon it that I was dumb, also what I had seen, and that I wished the large Bible. I took the Bible and readily turned to all the texts that I had seen upon the card. I was unable to speak all day. Early the next morning my soul was filled with joy, and my tongue was loosed to shout the high praises of God. After that I dared not doubt or for a moment resist the power of God, however others might think of me. {EW 22.2}

The first of the fifty Bible texts that Ellen White saw reads thus:

And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season. Luke 1:20

Anyone who doubts and does not proclaim what God wants them to proclaim in His time, must fall silent. If he repents, he is silenced just for a short time; if he does not repent, he will cease for eternity.

The first three angels symbolize "movements" that materialized through great bursts of prophetic knowledge and Bible understanding. Each angel screened out those who did not want to accept the message, who considered it to be premature, inappropriate, or even incorrect. The Fourth Angel is another such movement. We should learn from the past. Out of a community of more than 17 million, apostate Adventists which are to the core secular, disoriented, misinformed, and believe themselves rich, and in need of no Fourth Angel's message—will be filtered out leaving only a tiny group. Ellen White said even that the majority of the workers of the 11th hour will come from other churches in the time of the Loud Cry.

I knew from the beginning that the Orion message records not only our entire "sad" church history and calls us to repentance, but also contains a time message which according to Ellen White—at first glance—should not exist. Even worse, as we will find out in the last part of the Shadow Series, not just the year of Jesus' return is revealed but also the "very probable day".

For many, it's not enough to study the striking difference in the two visions of Ellen White as explained in the first article of the "Day and Hour" series. They want more. I would like to satisfy this thirst for knowledge now, because like I said I had to reconcile Ellen White, the Bible, and the Orion study for myself. Strangely, there was no problem with the Bible, just with Ellen White.

There is something the great majority miss: Ellen White herself put many hints in her writings that from the Fourth Angel onward there will again take place a time proclamation. But our church is in a deep sleep, as we all (should) know. Only intensive study will keep the reader from falling into or persisting in that same sleep. And only intensive study combined with a love of the truth would have allowed our BRI (Biblical Research Institute), who actually has that responsibility, to discover the things that I will now explain.

First, I would like to give you some Bible passages to ponder over. These appear to contradict other statements of Jesus that say only God the Father will know the day and the hour. Remember Ellen White said that we have to study EVERYTHING like this so that it ultimately comes together in harmony...

The Bible actually teaches that we have to know the day and the hour:

Jesus says to John in his revelation:

And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. Rev 3:1-3

And the Apostle Paul states something very similar in his letter to the Thessalonians:

For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 1 Thess 5:3-5

Our scholars know these verses too, of course, but they interpret them as allegorical in stead of prophetic. That's a big mistake because it makes them also miss the additional hints in the Bible that something special has to happen at a particular point in time...

Jan Paulsen, the former President of our church, spoke in Paraguay on the 29th of June, 2008 in the sports stadium in front of an undisciplined, loud, and inattentive audience, which consisted of about 4,000 "Adventists". I had the privilage of listening to the words of his very insightful sermon. In the background about 100 people, most of them under the age of 7 years, were subjected to a quick baptism so the leaders could report "success". Only those who watched very closely noticed that the pastors did not even take baptismal votes.

But the sermon of Jan Paulsen was good. It was very good—but only for those who could read between the lines. I discussed it later with four pastors and eight elders and they didn't understand at all what Jan Paulsen had actually said and meant. He began his sermon saying that he is the first president of the Seventh-day Adventist global church to visit Paraguay, and also the last. Wow, wasn't that actually time setting? Was it? If, as some of our brothers and sisters on Facebook wrote to me, Jesus is not obligated to come in the next 100 years, then those opening words of Jan Paulsen could be interpreted as an insult to the Paraguayans, if you'll allow me this little joke. No, he really began to preach a "farewell sermon", not in terms of his office ending soon, but clearly in view of the end of our Church as we know it. This tremendous sermon introduction was not even slightly noticed by the pastors and elders. They were too busy working...trying in vain, powerless, to silence the raucous and dissonantly applauding crowd of low-class "Adventists" during this Sunday(!) afternoon sermon.

Jan Paulsen preached about the last words of Jesus on earth and applied chapters 16 and 17 from the gospel of John. He said these would be the last words you would hear from him in Paraguay, and the last words are always the most important in human life and have a special weight for those to whom they are addressed. Of course, this is especially true if these were the last words of Jesus, the Son of God Himself to His disciples. We should remember these words carefully, ponder them, and study them in depth, to be warned of what to expect in the near future.

His sermon cleverly avoided Jesus' advance warnings of a terrible persecution (due to the presence of many children) and he asked the audience (if there were anyone listening) to seriously re-study these verses at home. But he was definitely sure that persecution would arise very soon. Please, do also read John chapter 16 carefully. Paulsen then put special emphasis on the following verse:

But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you. John 16:4

The purpose of his sermon was to make it clear to the people that the General Conference as it exists today would soon no longer exist. That very soon the time would come when each group of faithful Adventists would be on their own. He pointed out that no group could stay faithful to God unless Jesus were in their midst, and that would only be possible when the Comforter would come and live in each and every one of us.

Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. John 16:7

But Jesus gave a certain condition for the Comforter to come in His prayer for the unity of his church in John 17, the longest prayer of the Bible. It was a clever sermon and by the end he had won some listeners. Unfortunately, they did not notice the beginning and therefore they did not understand that Jan Paulsen had said good-bye for himself and at the same time for the General Conference. Fortunately, I got to listen and understand the sermon in two languages, since it was simultaneously translated and I manage pretty well in English and Spanish.

In the end, he stressed again that these were the last words of Jesus to his disciples before his suffering. Then we sang a hymn and the "Adventists" were allowed to go home in order to fire up the barbecue grill. Thus the sermon was about persecution and fellowship, the outpouring of the latter rain, and one of the conditions for this to happen: unity of the faithful... Of course, he related it to unity with the General Conference. Here in South America, he did not mention a word about "obedience" or "Ellen White", otherwise a depressed silence would have ensued. But never mind that.

Today—a few years later—I noticed again that Jan Paulsen was very correct in stating that the last words of a person are especially significant. Even today I still know what he said. But the last words of Jesus, of course, have incredibly more weight. But what were the last words of Jesus? There are many studies about the last words of Jesus on the cross. Yes, those were His last words before death. But were those His last words to the disciples? No, Jesus rose again and spent another 40 days with the disciples. So what were the real last words of Jesus that have such great importance?

Before His ascension, Jesus spoke His last words to His companions who would have to stay in a cruel world. His disciples symbolically represent all the faithful Christians of later generations, especially the last generation. And if you haven't already recognized it, these very last and most important words of Jesus are talking about our problem...they are the answer to the question of the disciples as to when He would come back to establish His kingdom. These verses have been read only superficially and have never been studied in depth, but in them we will find the solution to the problem of whether or not there will be another message that is about the "day and hour" after the Third Angel.

Let us read now those last words of Jesus to His disciples before His ascension into heaven:

When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. Act 1:6-9

Once again, our BRI failed to notice that Jesus, as in Matthew 24, Luke 21, and Mark 13, replies with a doubly-applicable answer to the question of the disciples about His second coming. Jesus never left out the real end of the world in His answers, but He linked it so cleverly with the events that directly affected the disciples that only the last generation of the remnant of the remnant would be able to discover the second application. Let's read what Ellen White said about the way Jesus responded to related questions:

The question of the disciples

Christ's words had been spoken in the hearing of a large number of people; but when He was alone, Peter, John, James, and Andrew came to Him as He sat upon the Mount of Olives. "Tell us," they said, "when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of Thy coming, and of the end of the world?" Jesus did not answer His disciples by taking up separately the destruction of Jerusalem and the great day of His coming. He mingled the description of these two events. Had He opened to His disciples future events as He beheld them, they would have been unable to endure the sight. In mercy to them He blended the description of the two great crises, leaving the disciples to study out the meaning for themselves. When He referred to the destruction of Jerusalem, His prophetic words reached beyond that event to the final conflagration in that day when the Lord shall rise out of His place to punish the world for their iniquity, when the earth shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain. This entire discourse was given, not for the disciples only, but for those who should live in the last scenes of this earth's history. {DA 628.1}

Yes, dear BRI, you could have recognized that Jesus' answer to the same question just before His ascension was given in a similar fashion to shortly before His crucifixion. The situation of the disciples had not changed. The destruction of Jerusalem was still in the future and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit was also still 10 days ahead.

Our church has already recognized the truth in the aforementioned chapters of the Bible, but it still lacks it in relation to Acts chapter 1. It was the main theme of Jesus in Matthew 24 to typify the impending destruction of the earth by the early destruction of the Temple (70 AD), and His words are properly interpreted to apply to the impending siege against the church in the end times by the Sunday laws.  However, it is overlooked that the very similar question of the disciples in Acts was also answered in the same twofold manner by Jesus.

However, the main topic here is the "Power of the Father" and the "Power of the Holy Spirit" and not just the signs that will precede the second coming. Now it is actually about explaining when the disciples would receive the knowledge about the day and hour of Jesus' return.

Jesus' words "It is not for you to know the times or the seasons" relate to the disciples who lived at that time, some 2000 years before the actual establishment of Christ's kingdom (His return). Just think about this! Ellen White always praised William Miller, even in the Great Controversy. The first Millerites and the Second Angel (Samuel Snow) had to answer to the same "no time-setting" arguments from their Christian brethren, just like the movement of the Fourth Angel today, which has to sound the real and correct Midnight Cry this time.

How did Ellen White explain this in the Great Controversy? How did the Millerites meet these attacks? You will see that it sounds quite a bit different than the many repetitions against time-setting of a few quotations of Ellen White that are mostly taken out of context:

The proclamation of a definite time for Christ's coming called forth great opposition from many of all classes, from the minister in the pulpit down to the most reckless, Heaven-daring sinner. The words of prophecy were fulfilled: "There shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, Where is the promise of His coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation." 2 Peter 3:3, 4. Many who professed to love the Saviour, declared that they had no opposition to the doctrine of the second advent; they merely objected to the definite time. But God's all-seeing eye read their hearts. They did not wish to hear of Christ's coming to judge the world in righteousness. They had been unfaithful servants, their works would not bear the inspection of the heart-searching God, and they feared to meet their Lord. Like the Jews at the time of Christ's first advent they were not prepared to welcome Jesus. They not only refused to listen to the plain arguments from the Bible, but ridiculed those who were looking for the Lord. Satan and his angels exulted, and flung the taunt in the face of Christ and holy angels that His professed people had so little love for Him that they did not desire His appearing. {GC 370.1}
"No man knoweth the day nor the hour" was the argument most often brought forward by rejecters of the advent faith. The scripture is: "Of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but My Father only." Matthew 24:36. A clear and harmonious explanation of this text was given by those who were looking for the Lord, and the wrong use made of it by their opponents was clearly shown. The words were spoken by Christ in that memorable conversation with His disciples upon Olivet after He had for the last time departed from the temple. The disciples had asked the question: "What shall be the sign of Thy coming, and of the end of the world?" Jesus gave them signs, and said: "When ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors." Verses 3, 33. One saying of the Saviour must not be made to destroy another. Though no man knoweth the day nor the hour of His coming, we are instructed and required to know when it is near. We are further taught that to disregard His warning, and refuse or neglect to know when His advent is near, will be as fatal for us as it was for those who lived in the days of Noah not to know when the flood was coming. {GC 370.2}

There is an interesting short study about that at Cyberspace Ministry. Long before the flood, the time of the disaster could have been known. As far back as 1,000 years earlier, God began to reveal in stages certain intervals and ultimately even the "day and hour". The biblical principle that lies behind all time prophecies is called "God’s Process of Progressive Revelation". I will briefly summarize it for you:

  1. The name Methuselah means "The year he dies, it will be sent". This was a rather vague time prophecy, because no one could know what God would send, and neither did the people know exactly how long Methuselah would live. But for nearly 10 centuries it was predicted that the life span of Methuselah was a measure of when the end would come. People lived over 900 years at that time, and Methuselah was the oldest man who ever lived. Once again, a sign that God always waits until the very last moment to send His judgments.
    Studying Genesis 5:26,28; 6:6, we are able to calculate that this prophecy was fulfilled precisely.

  2. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. ... And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. ... And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Gen 6:3, 7, 13
    In this second stage, God revealed to Noah that He had decided to destroy men; He even told him that the countdown had begun. So Noah knew that he had only 120 years to build the ark, and thus he knew the year of the Flood; however, he still did not know the precise date. But that information would have been no use to him at that time.

  3. 120 years later, when the fateful event drew near, God gave Noah a third and final revelation. It was a very precise announcement:

    And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. ... For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth. Gen 7:1, 4

    Attention please! God could have simply commanded Noah to go into the ark without informing him of when the flood would begin. But God in His great mercy decided to give Noah this important information to make his waiting time less painful. He even revealed to him how long the flood would last: 40 days and nights.

Jesus gave us a hint that when He comes again it will be like in the days of Noah:

But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Mt 24:37

Let us compare the type of the destruction of the world given by the history of Noah with the Orion message and, in preview, the message of the third part of the Shadow Series:

  1. We receive a "vague" prophecy from Daniel that gives a very long time range: And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed. Dan 8:14
    Mankind was in the dark about two issues in this prophecy. When did these 2300 evenings and the mornings begin and what exactly was the nature of the event? Around 1820, William Miller found out when the 2300 days had begun and sounded the Midnight Cry with full power in 1841. But he was still in error in regard to the event and thought it was already the second coming. Indeed it was the beginning of the Investigative Judgment in the heavenly sanctuary as we would learn at the beginning of stage 2. The prophecy of the 2300 evenings and mornings is therefore comparable to the message in the name "Methuselah".

  2. The Great Disappointment occurred in 1844, but it was perfectly understood that the light of the First Angel was not the true Midnight Cry for the coming of the bridegroom; but that the Investigative Judgment had begun in heaven. The duration of the Investigative Judgment was hidden in Daniel 12, as I explained in the PowerPoint presentation of the Orion message on slides 58 to 74. The judgment of the dead would take 168 years and the judgment of the living three and a half years. Both would overlap by half a year. We concluded that spring 2012 + 3½ years gives us autumn 2015 for the beginning of the year of plagues that leads to autumn 2016 for the second coming. As in stage 2 of the flood prophecies, we could have known the year even as early as 1844... [In the first edition of this article we did not have the exact calculation. It still contained the "millerite" error of one year, which was improved in January 2013. But to not confuse the reader, we entered now the current data.]

    But there is a very important difference between the proclamation of the 120 years of Noah and the proclamation of this period! Noah knew the time, but for us a prohibition was placed on time prophecy during the corresponding period, because it would not have been advantageous for us to know decades beforehand in which year Jesus would return. The oath of Jesus in Revelation 10 applies only to a particular time range within the total duration of the Investigative Judgment, because He raises only one hand. The oath applies to the duration of the judgment of the dead from autumn 1844 to autumn 2012. I will explain this particular teaching of Jesus in detail later on.

    But it is important to understand that we could have known the year as early as 1844 (if Jesus had not kept his finger on it), but not the exact date. We also understood clearly what the next big event would be, namely the actual coming of Jesus. But it is vehemently denied that the real Midnight Cry, which was even predicted in the dream of William Miller himself, has to be completely fulfilled also! This leads us to Step 3 in the process of progressive revelation of God regarding time prophecy.

  3. Our church missed the opportunity to go to heaven in 1890. The message of the Fourth Angel, whose light began to shine at the General Conference meeting of 1888, was rejected by the liberal Adventists who did not want to be obedient to God. Ellen White was very disappointed. She said that we would have to wander in the wilderness like the children of Israel for "40 years" to get a second chance (more on that below). This desert experience did not begin in 1888, as some Adventists had fairly well figured out, but actually 2 years later in 1890. A special event took place in 2010, exactly 120 (3 × 40!) years later, that is dismissed by many as time setting. A man discovered God's message in Orion and made it readable. 9 months later in September of the same year he deciphered the prophecies that are behind the Jewish feast days, which reveal the exact day of Jesus' second coming. (This knowledge [The Vessel of Time] is to be published in the third part of the Shadow Series.) [In the first edition of this article we did not have the exact day. It still contained the "millerite" error of one year, which was improved in January 2013.]

    Let us compare type and anti-type again. Noah entered the ark 7 days before the flood. He was told that he would have to wait 7 days until the torrential rain would begin to fall. In 2005, I discovered a study in the Bible which indicated clearly that something "big" would happen in 2012. This was exactly 7 years before that infamous year. I have been warning the Church now for 6 long years, but almost no one wants to hear the warnings. So it was also in Noah's day. Before he was shut inside the Ark by the hand of God, the animals came running pairwise which can only be attributed to divine influence. The people watched this scene, laughed at it, or perhaps even got ​​a little worried. But no one asked Noah if he would let him come on board too. Almost all Adventists behave in the same way in the face of the great revelations that God gives them from His sanctuary in heaven.

    The 7 years prior to 2012 are also characterized by three stages of time proclamation which harmonize again with the model of Noah...

    1. In 2005, I received a study which I will publish in the course of the Shadows Series, that marks 2012 as a year of a "great event" just like the study of the oath in Daniel 12. But this study did not show the exact timing of the judgment of the dead and the living like Daniel 12. So as late as spring 2010, I was still undecided as to what the nature of the event in 2012 would be.

      Like with the name "Methuselah", it was not clear from this prophecy what the year of destruction would be (Second Coming) and it was not even possible to define what kind of event would take place in 2012.
       

    2. It was not until spring 2010 that phase 2 of the progressive revelation of God began. God revelaed His Clock in Orion and as the students of this Clock already know, the year of Jesus' return was shown there for the first time. Because I committed some errors in the interpretation of Orion, the year of Jesus' second coming was not fully revealed. I first believed that He would come in 2014, later I thought that 2014 would be just the beginning of the year of plagues. The year 2015 for the coming was named for the first time in the second version of the Orion study published in September 2010. [Yet in January 2013, the Lord revealed the real date of the coming in autumn 2016.] Like Miller, I was one year too early.

      This is reflected in the 120 years of Noah, during which he and everyone who believed with him knew in which year the Flood would come.
       

    3. In the fall of 2010 I received new inspiration for another study apparently independent from Orion; a study of the Jewish feasts. This study, in a completely different manner from the Orion study, reveals exactly the same historical data of the Adventist Church with a few additional details. I did not recognize until recently that it is only logical for it to be that way. The Orion is a symbol of the heavenly sanctuary, while the feast days are an image of the earthly sanctuary. The sanctuary on earth is the shadow of the heavenly! I found the astronomical code in the festivals that reflects the entire history of the Adventist Church like in the Orion, but with more detail. One of those additional details is the exact date of Jesus' return in 2016. [In the first edition of this article we did not have the exact calculation. It still contained the "millerite" error of one year, which was improved in January 2013. But to not confuse the reader, we entered now the current data.]

       
      Therefore, we are already in Phase 3.3 of the final time proclamation. The seven days of Noah are matched in the seven years from 2005 to 2012 and in the detailed plan discovered in the astronomical code of the feast days beginning in September 2010. The first error in the Orion study was corrected through this code, and more surprisingly the study revealed the exact duration of the time of the plagues to the very day. This time period was encoded twice, once in the number of sacrifices during the feasts and once in the astronomical code of the feast days. Thus, even the 40 days of rain that were prophesied by God before the flood found their counterpart in the shadow study with the discovery of the duration of the time of the plagues. These are all the subject of the third part of the Shadows of the Future.

We interrupted our reading of the Great Controversy at the point where Ellen White said: "We are further taught that to disregard His warning, and refuse or neglect to know when His advent is near, will be as fatal for us as it was for those who lived in the days of Noah not to know when the flood was coming."

Let's continue to read:

And the parable in the same chapter, contrasting the faithful and the unfaithful servant, and giving the doom of him who said in his heart, "My Lord delayeth His coming," shows in what light Christ will regard and reward those whom He finds watching, and teaching His coming, and those denying it. "Watch therefore," He says. "Blessed is that servant, whom his Lord when He cometh shall find so doing." Verses 42, 46. "If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee." Revelation 3:3. {GC 370.2}
Paul speaks of a class to whom the Lord's appearing will come unawares. "The day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, . . . and they shall not escape." But he adds, to those who have given heed to the Saviour's warning: "Ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness." 1 Thessalonians 5:2-5. {GC 371.1}
Thus it was shown that Scripture gives no warrant for men to remain in ignorance concerning the nearness of Christ's coming. But those who desired only an excuse to reject the truth closed their ears to this explanation, and the words "No man knoweth the day nor the hour" continued to be echoed by the bold scoffer and even by the professed minister of Christ. As the people were roused, and began to inquire the way of salvation, religious teachers stepped in between them and the truth, seeking to quiet their fears by falsely interpreting the word of God. Unfaithful watchmen united in the work of the great deceiver, crying, Peace, peace, when God had not spoken peace. Like the Pharisees in Christ's day, many refused to enter the kingdom of heaven themselves, and those who were entering in they hindered. The blood of these souls will be required at their hand. {GC 372.1}
The most humble and devoted in the churches were usually the first to receive the message. Those who studied the Bible for themselves could not but see the unscriptural character of the popular views of prophecy; and wherever the people were not controlled by the influence of the clergy, wherever they would search the word of God for themselves, the advent doctrine needed only to be compared with the Scriptures to establish its divine authority. {GC 372.2}
Many were persecuted by their unbelieving brethren. In order to retain their position in the church, some consented to be silent in regard to their hope; but others felt that loyalty to God forbade them thus to hide the truths which He had committed to their trust. Not a few were cut off from the fellowship of the church for no other reason than expressing their belief in the coming of Christ. Very precious to those who bore this trial of their faith were the words of the prophet: "Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for My name's sake, said, Let the Lord be glorified: but He shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed." Isaiah 66:5. {GC 372.3}

Wolff was another pioneer of that time who was mentioned positively by Ellen White in the Great Controversy:

Wolff believed the coming of the Lord to be at hand, his interpretation of the prophetic periods placing the great consummation within a very few years of the time pointed out by Miller. To those who urged from the scripture, "Of that day and hour knoweth no man," that men are to know nothing concerning the nearness of the advent, Wolff replied: "Did our Lord say that that day and hour should never be known? Did He not give us signs of the times, in order that we may know at least the approach of His coming, as one knows the approach of the summer by the fig tree putting forth its leaves? Matthew 24:32. Are we never to know that period, whilst He Himself exhorteth us not only to read Daniel the prophet, but to understand it? and in that very Daniel, where it is said that the words were shut up to the time of the end (which was the case in his time), and that 'many shall run to and fro' (a Hebrew expression for observing and thinking upon the time), 'and knowledge' (regarding that time) 'shall be increased.' Daniel 12:4. Besides this, our Lord does not intend to say by this, that the approach of the time shall not be known, but that the exact 'day and hour knoweth no man.' Enough, He does say, shall be known by the signs of the times, to induce us to prepare for His coming, as Noah prepared the ark."--Wolff, Researches and Missionary Labors, pages 404, 405. {GC 359.2}

Those were Wolff's answers to the objection that no one could know the day and the hour. He referred more to the nearness of the time and did not give as clear of statements as William Miller with his "Midnight Cry".  Miller's statements correspond more to the view of Ellen White that we want to bring into harmony with the message that predicts not only the year, but also the very day of the second coming. First of all, Miller's "Midnight Cry" was a message which proclaimed the year of Jesus' return. This "Midnight Cry" also came in at least two phases. The message of the First Angel (the Millerite movement) first preached the year 1843, without specifying a particular day. This corresponds to phase 2 of the Noah's type. Only when the Second Angel (Samuel Snow) joined the First Angel (William Miller) was the date of the "alleged" Second Coming calculated by Samuel Snow (quite rightly) to be the 22nd of October, 1844. This corresponds to phase 3 of the type of Noah's day. However, neither were in fact the true Midnight Cry, because the groom was still 170 years further away. Therefore, at a special point in time a "second Miller" had to come who would preach the true Midnight Cry. This was dreamt by William Miller himself and even found the approbation of Ellen White. Miller's Dream was printed in chapter 22 of Early Writings.

Fine. Maybe so far one does not believe that the movement of the First and the Second Angel, "the combined Midnight Cry" will be repeated; but...it is foretold by none other than Ellen White, personally. First, please read about the relationship between Miller's message (the light of the First Angel) and the Second Angel, so later you can better understand another statement of Ellen White about this:

Near the close of the second angel's message, I saw a great light from heaven shining upon the people of God. The rays of this light seemed bright as the sun. And I heard the voices of angels crying, "Behold, the Bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet Him!" {EW 238.1} This was the midnight cry, which was to give power to the second angel's message. Angels were sent from heaven to arouse the discouraged saints and prepare them for the great work before them. The most talented men were not the first to receive this message. Angels were sent to the humble, devoted ones, and constrained them to raise the cry, "Behold, the Bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet Him!" Those entrusted with the cry made haste, and in the power of the Holy Spirit sounded the message, and aroused their discouraged brethren. This work did not stand in the wisdom and learning of men, but in the power of God, and His saints who heard the cry could not resist it. The most spiritual received this message first, and those who had formerly led in the work were the last to receive and help swell the cry, "Behold, the Bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet Him!" {EW 238.2}

The movement of Samuel Snow (the Second Angel) already existed before Miller; the Second Angel came before the First. This movement denounced the sins of the apostate Protestant churches, which were on their way back to Rome. But the message was not heard because it had no urgency. The power that was given to this message by the Midnight Cry was the proclamation of a precise date for Jesus' Second Coming. The time was scarce and this "aroused" the discouraged saints so that their message was heard again with power.

And now comes the most important statement of Ellen White, which is based on direct visions from God. In Early Writings in the chapter The Loud Cry you can read how the Fourth Angel will come:

Angels were sent to aid the mighty angel from heaven, and I heard voices which seemed to sound everywhere, "Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities." This message seemed to be an addition to the third message, joining it as the midnight cry joined the second angel's message in 1844. The glory of God rested upon the patient, waiting saints, and they fearlessly gave the last solemn warning, proclaiming the fall of Babylon and calling upon God's people to come out of her that they might escape her fearful doom. {EW 277.2}

Just as the First Angel (Miller with the Midnight Cry) joined the Second Angel and gave him power, the Fourth Angel will join the Third and give it power just like the Midnight Cry! The Midnight Cry was the shout "The Bridegroom cometh!" This includes "day and hour"; it is a time message! But the Fourth Angel also has a warning message that calls for repentance and conversion, as I have already shown in the studies and do not want to repeat here. And now, please note exactly what Ellen White saw in her vision that "rested upon the patient, waiting saints": "The glory of God"...and what is the "glory of God" according to the Bible?

But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God. Acts 7:55-56

Stephen saw the same thing that we can see now, if we follow Jesus wherever He goes....

These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. ...Rev 14:4

This verse begins the passage about the Three Angel's message and to date has only been partially understood. It talks about the 144,000 and that they follow Jesus, the Lamb, wherever He goes. Our pioneers correctly interpreted this as referring to when Jesus moved His service from the Holy Place into the Most Holy Place in 1844. Those who accepted that Jesus' ministry ended in the Holy Place and that He began the service of the heavenly judgment day as High Priest, symbolically followed Him into the Holiest.

The others stayed in the Holy Place. They never understood the prophecy of the 2300 evenings and mornings, nor the sanctuary doctrine, and had remained in darkness. And not only that! A strange evil spirit was breathed on them by Satan.

But that does not end this prophecy. Now, at the end of the investigative judgment of the dead, we get the refreshing from the latter rain to give the Loud Cry in the judgment of the living and again we are asked to "follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth", because this prophecy is given in Revelation in connection with the 144,000 and not with the Third Angel! This time, we should lift up our heads to the firmament like Stephen and see the glory of God and Jesus standing at the right hand of God: His wounds in the Judgment Clock and His High Priestly Intercessory Service depicted in the most stunning constellation of the universe created by Him, just before the throne of God and the Home of the Holy City in the "open space" of the Great Orion Nebula.

And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. Luke 21:28

We find this force or power (of the mighty angel) rushing to the aid of the Third Angel and "arousing" the sleeping virgins in Revelation 18 where the Fourth Angel is described:

And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power [G1849]; and the earth was lightened with his glory. Rev 18:1

Now, I would like to ask you to download and install the e-Sword Bible with the Strong's dictionary from the Internet, so you can check me. (Just search for "e-sword Bible".)

The word for "power" in the above verse is Greek and in the Strongs for the King James Version Bible it is listed as:

G1849
ἐξουσία
exousia
ex-oo-see'-ah

From G1832 (in the sense of ability); privilege, that is, (subjectively) force, capacity, competency, freedom, or (objectively) mastery (concretely magistrate, superhuman, potentate, token of control), delegated influence: - authority, jurisdiction, liberty, power, right, strength.

There are several similar meanings of the word, but we are about to compare this occurrence of the word with a different part of the Bible. In many versions of the Bible it is translated very well as "force, strength, power, or authority". Now we we are closing the loop that began in Acts. There, Jesus answered the disciples and talked about the outpouring of the Holy Spirit when He said:

And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Act 1:7-8

One can already see that the end of this verse is not entirely fulfilled, because the gospel has still not been preached to the uttermost part of the earth, otherwise the end would have come already...

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

I suppose that it isn't necessary to explain that we as Adventists know that the Holy Spirit will be poured out once again even richer than in the days of the apostles at Pentecost. Pentecost was the fulfillment of the prophecy of the "early rain" and we have been waiting eagerly for the past 160 years for the "latter rain", the second outpouring of the Holy Spirit, which will enable us to withstand the tests of the Sunday laws and to sound to the Loud Cry.

Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil. Joel 2:23-24

The double application of Jesus' answer is now clearly visible:

It was not for the apostles to know the times or the seasons in their day. The Father had reserved this in His power (exousia), but first the former rain (Pentecost) should be given so the gospel could be proclaimed in Jerusalem and throughout Judea and Samaria, and finally the latter rain so this work could extend to the uttermost part of the earth.

Jesus says, "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you"... We as Adventists understand that this power which we will get is symbolized by the Fourth Angel:

In Supplement to Early Writings, Ellen White writes with her own pen:

"The commencement of that time of trouble," here mentioned does not refer to the time when the plagues shall begin to be poured out, but to a short period just before they are poured out, while Christ is in the sanctuary. At that time, while the work of salvation is closing, trouble will be coming on the earth, and the nations will be angry, yet held in check so as not to prevent the work of the third angel. At that time the "latter rain," or refreshing from the presence of the Lord, will come, to give power to the loud voice of the third angel, and prepare the saints to stand in the period when the seven last plagues shall be poured out. {EW 85.3}

She even linked the power of the Fourth Angel with the latter rain. And now, let's see which Greek word for "power" was used in Acts 1:7...

And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power [G1849].

And there it is again:

G1849
ἐξουσία
exousia
ex-oo-see'-ah

From G1832 (in the sense of ability); privilege, that is, (subjectively) force, capacity, competency, freedom, or (objectively) mastery (concretely magistrate, superhuman, potentate, token of control), delegated influence: - authority, jurisdiction, liberty, power, right, strength.

The Fourth Angel and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit come in the same power and authority (exousia), which was reserved ONLY for the Father . The Father Himself, who is the Judge in the heavenly court, has permitted the Holy Spirit to give us the hour of the end of the judgment and the coming of Jesus. It's not a human being who brings the message, but the Father Himself who revealed HIS CLOCK to us. The Fourth Angel, which is a movement of people who believe this present truth, received the authority (exousia) from the Father.

But how is that possible? Doesn't this contradict the oath of the angel (Jesus) in Revelation 10 "that there should be time no more"?

Please take a look at the following table that explains what the meanings of the oaths of Jesus are in Daniel 12 (see Orion presentation) and Revelation 10. It also explains what the relation is between the prophecy (Book of Daniel) and the revelation (Book of Revelation). While Jesus in Daniel 12 raises both hands and vows to the two men who represent the two parts of humanity in the Judgment of the Dead who accepted the New Covenant before or after 31 AD, Jesus in Revelation 10 raises only one hand. In this case it is not only about the New Covenant, but about both parts of the Investigative Judgment: the Judgment of the Dead and the Judgment of the Living. Unfortunately, it has been completely overlooked that even a hand that was not lifted has meaning in prophecy, and that's why this scene was only interpreted half correctly:

The oaths

Ellen White said that the books of Daniel and Revelation must be studied together. The Book of Daniel was the "prophecy" and the book of Revelation was "the revelation of the prophecy of Daniel." We find the same scenes in both books. It is our job to find those parallel scenes and link them together. God tells us through Ellen White that He has added details in Revelation to the prophecies of Daniel which make it easier for us to decipher those prophecies. This is exactly the case in the scene where Jesus swears. In Daniel 12 we read:

But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. Dan 12:4

What a pity that our leaders and the general conferences along with their scholars reject these studies and do not participate in the process of increased knowledge. But let's drop that subject.

Jesus does not swear to the group which represents the Judgment of the Living for 3½ years "that there should be time no more." That means by implication, that the time proclamation is released again. It was paused because Jesus who knows the end from the beginning saw that the church would not be faithful, and would fail in some of their tests. He knew He would have to send His people into the wilderness for 120 years beyond 1890. And while wandering in the wilderness it would have been harmful and dangerous for the people to know that Jesus was still so far away. But now that the long journey of the Adventist Church in their wilderness wandering is over as of 2010, we are led to an oasis with the refreshing water of the Holy Spirit and time prophecy once again. And the Fourth Angel comes down from heaven with the cry, "The Bridegroom Cometh", to help the Third Angel; giving the Advent message the power of the AUTHORITY (exousia) of the FATHER.

Finally we fully understand the "small" difference in the two visions of Ellen White that mention the announcement of the "day and the hour". We see that it is true that the time is announced at the outpouring of the latter rain also, and not just at the end of the time of the plagues when God delivers the eternal covenant and confirms our studies:

Soon we heard the voice of God like many waters, which gave us the day and hour of Jesus' coming. The living saints, 144,000 in number, knew and understood the voice, while the wicked thought it was thunder and an earthquake. When God spoke the time, He poured upon us the Holy Ghost, and our faces began to light up and shine with the glory of God, as Moses' did when he came down from Mount Sinai. {EW 14.1}

To refute once and for all the attacks of my critics who say that it is the same exact moment in both visions when Ellen White saw the time of Jesus' coming proclaimed, and that it would only be at the end of the plagues, I will show you something else that very few Adventists have recognized so far. The stubborn deniers of all new light are still attacking me despite my detailed explanations in the article Is This Time Setting?, and their only argument is that in both scenes "the faces of the saints shone with the glory of God." They say that the faces of the saints would only light up and shine once at the end of the time of the plagues through the glorification of the saints at Jesus' second coming. Because this statement occurs in both visions, they think that it is an irrefutable argument for their interpretation that the "day and hour" announced in both visions must be at the very same moment in time.

In the table below I put both statements side by side, which they claim would be irrefutable proof that it is the same moment in both visions:

First Vision Dec. 1844 with "Day and Hour"Second Vision with "Day and Hour" 1847
Soon we heard the voice of God like many waters, which gave us the day and hour of Jesus' coming. The living saints, 144,000 in number, knew and understood the voice, while the wicked thought it was thunder and an earthquake. When God spoke the time, He poured upon us the Holy Ghost, and our faces began to light up and shine with the glory of God, as Moses' did when he came down from Mount Sinai. {EW 14.1} And as God spoke the day and the hour of Jesus' coming and delivered the everlasting covenant to His people, He spoke one sentence, and then paused, while the words were rolling through the earth. The Israel of God stood with their eyes fixed upward, listening to the words as they came from the mouth of Jehovah, and rolled through the earth like peals of loudest thunder. It was awfully solemn. And at the end of every sentence the saints shouted, "Glory! Alleluia!" Their counte­nances were lighted up with the glory of God; and they shone with the glory, as did the face of Moses when he came down from Sinai. {EW 34.1}
First Vision Dec. 1844 with "Day and Hour"
Soon we heard the voice of God like many waters, which gave us the day and hour of Jesus' coming. The living saints, 144,000 in number, knew and understood the voice, while the wicked thought it was thunder and an earthquake. When God spoke the time, He poured upon us the Holy Ghost, and our faces began to light up and shine with the glory of God, as Moses' did when he came down from Mount Sinai. {EW 14.1}
Second Vision with "Day and Hour" 1847
And as God spoke the day and the hour of Jesus' coming and delivered the everlasting covenant to His people, He spoke one sentence, and then paused, while the words were rolling through the earth. The Israel of God stood with their eyes fixed upward, listening to the words as they came from the mouth of Jehovah, and rolled through the earth like peals of loudest thunder. It was awfully solemn. And at the end of every sentence the saints shouted, "Glory! Alleluia!" Their counte­nances were lighted up with the glory of God; and they shone with the glory, as did the face of Moses when he came down from Sinai. {EW 34.1}

Either they don't know the writings of Ellen White very well, or they don't want to tell you the truth. Ellen White wrote a wonderful article in Volume 1 of herTestimonies for the Church, which even bears the appropriate title "The Future". It's about our future, brethren, and you will see that our faces indeed have to light up twice if we want to be among the 144,000:

The Future

At the transfiguration, Jesus was glorified by His Father. We hear Him say: "Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in Him." Thus before His betrayal and crucifixion He was strengthened for His last dreadful sufferings. As the members of the body of Christ approach the period of their last conflict, "the time of Jacob's trouble," they will grow up into Christ, and will partake largely of His spirit. As the third message swells to a loud cry, and as great power and glory attend the closing work, the faithful people of God will partake of that glory. {1T 353.3}

We already know which power (exousia) and which glory (the glory of the throne of God in Orion) is mentioned here. The message of the Fourth Angel "attends the closing work", which means that probation is still not closed! And as I say many times, this message helps the unmotivated brethren... Ellen White goes on to explain the future:

It is the latter rain which revives and strengthens them to pass through the time of trouble. Their faces will shine with the glory of that light which attends the third angel. {1T 353.3}

There it is, the shining of the faces with the glory that "attends" the Third Angel. Please read that sentence several times until you are really sure you understand what Ellen Whites says. It is the light of the Fourth Angel's message that lights up the faces of the 144,000 specifically in the period of the latter rain, and not just in the time of the plagues. This is the sought-after inspired proof that the beginning of the Orion study was absolutely correct and that everything that was written in the article "Is this time setting" has been shown in its correct sequence. In order to reach the 100% mark, we should be able to find in the course of "our future" that our faces will light up once more. So, let's continue reading. Now we leave the little time of trouble and go directly to the great time of trouble:

I saw that God will in a wonderful manner preserve His people through the time of trouble. As Jesus poured out His soul in agony in the garden, they will earnestly cry and agonize day and night for deliverance. The decree will go forth that they must disregard the Sabbath of the fourth commandment, and honor the first day, or lose their lives; but they will not yield, and trample under their feet the Sabbath of the Lord, and honor an institution of papacy. Satan's host and wicked men will surround them, and exult over them, because there will seem to be no way of escape for them. But in the midst of their revelry and triumph, there is heard peal upon peal of the loudest thunder. The heavens have gathered blackness, and are only illuminated by the blazing light and terrible glory from heaven, as God utters His voice from His holy habitation. {1T 353.4}
The foundations of the earth shake; buildings totter and fall with a terrible crash. The sea boils like a pot, and the whole earth is in terrible commotion. The captivity of the righteous is turned, and with sweet and solemn whisperings they say to one another: "We are delivered. It is the voice of God." With solemn awe they listen to the words of the voice. The wicked hear, but understand not the words of the voice of God. They fear and tremble, while the saints rejoice. Satan and his angels, and wicked men, who had been exulting that the people of God were in their power, that they might destroy them from off the earth, witness the glory conferred upon those who have honored the holy law of God. They behold the faces of the righteous lighted up and reflecting the image of Jesus. Those who were so eager to destroy the saints cannot endure the glory resting upon the delivered ones, and they fall like dead men to the earth. Satan and evil angels flee from the presence of the saints glorified. Their power to annoy them is gone forever. {1T 354.1}

The 144,000 living saints already understand the voice of God from the time of the latter rain beginning in 2010. They are the ones whose faces light up with joy and hope after wandering 120 years in the wilderness because of the refreshing from the throne of God and the wonderful message coming from the most beautiful of all star constellations that only the Creator could create in such a way. These are the ones who will be sealed now to sound the Loud Cry, and at the end of the time of trouble their faces will light up a second time, reflecting the image of Jesus who was always their Advocate, Intercessor, and Saviour, when He comes in all His glory and delivers the everlasting covenant to His people.

With this newly acquired biblical and prophetic knowledge, in the next article in this "Day and Hour" series we should examine the statements that Ellen White has written against time setting to harmonize them with everything we have studied thus far. I will categorize the anti-time-setting arguments of Ellen White and comment on them. Many of them have been quoted again and again rashly and without a deep understanding so that the light of the Fourth Angel is being obscured for most of the members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.  Their faces will remain pale and colorless when the day of God's wrath will come upon them like a thief.

In this final update to our book and DVD, much is made clear with our last light regarding the completed fulfillments of Revelation's sixth seal, which confirms that we are indeed in the time of plagues, and that our hope is not in vain, but solidly anchored. Download the book (pdf) or the DVD (iso) now, before it is too late, for offline reference so you have food for when the famine comes!

When Israel entered the Promised Land, God gave them specific instructions. The conquest of Jericho serves as an illustration for how history could repeat (including the seals of Revelation as explained in History Repeats). In our addendum to this important article, we explain why this model applies, and show how the sixth classical seal (corresponding to the sixth day's march around Jericho) has already been completely fulfilled.

On the seventh day, Israel marched around Jericho seven times, indicating a repetition of the six seals. In our addendum to the article, Signs of the End, we explain how the repeated sixth seal has completely fulfilled in our day.

The Orion presentation has been updated as well. See slides 101-114 for the explanation of how the repetition of the sixth seal has been completely fulfilled.

See also our last article, Anchored in Time, regarding the sixth plague and the nature of Armageddon, as it is unfolding as we speak.

Happy Last High Sabbath on Earth (Sabbath, September 2/3 is new moon)! We hope to meet you soon on "the cloud"!

August 25, 2016: THE LASTCOUNTDOWN BOOK, VERSION 5.2

Please download the new version 5.2 of the LastCountdown Book. We added the new (and probably last) article Anchored in Time, and two important additions that explain the completed fulfillments of the classical sixth seal and the repeated sixth seal before probation closed in October 2015. The book includes now also the new Orion Presentation 5.0 which has 8 new slides about the sixth seal in the repetition. (See slides 101 to 114.) All is showing us, that time ran out and the horrible seventh plague is right in front of us.


April 22, 2016: THE LASTCOUNTDOWN BOOK, VERSION 5.1

Please download the new version 5.1 of the LastCountdown Book. The Addendum to our four part article series The End of the World was added and a lot of typesetting work was done. Have a blessed time of the harvest.


March 8, 2016: THE LASTCOUNTDOWN BOOK, VERSION 5.0

The LastCountdown Book Version 5.0

Our work is coming to an end, just like this world is. Nevertheless, we are pleased to still be able to offer you the complete, revised and expanded LastCountdown Book, version 5.0. It can be downloaded HERE free, and it includes about 1600 pages of all our studies as a group from the past 6 years.

Also included is the new and final article series, “The End of the World,” wherein all four authors of our movement have a word once more. We hope that this book will be a valuable aid to you in the time of the famine for the Word of God, which is already here.

I could say much, but it’s not in my heart to do so, after so many years of seeing the rejection of the wonderful message that God has given me, so I’ll forbear in this short newsletter.

Just one thing... After my last article, The Hour of Truth, some “people” complained (and were mockingly happy) that we had exposed ourselves as “sun worshippers” because we say that stars are “suns.” Please understand that our articles are addressed to adults with at least an elementary education. We do not expect you all to be scholars, but neither should you have a black hole in the area where one normally thinks.

Jesus, the Son of God, is the center of our worship, and not stars nor suns. Those are just works. Whoever concludes from our last four articles that we glorify something other than only the Creator and true God, has either not read anything, or is on the road to personal perdition through committing the unpardonable sin, which is the rejection of the Holy Spirit. Slander, which some of our opposition now loudly resorts to, leads to the same bottomless pit.

Ellen G. White said:

The 144,000 were all sealed and perfectly united. On their foreheads was written, God, New Jerusalem, and a glorious star containing Jesus’ new name. {EW 15.1}

Those who cannot distinguish between a seal (or symbol) of the Lord, and Himself, should please continue to believe that the earth is flat. It's sad to see that the psychologists are right when they say clearly now that the human race is completely stupefied.

And whoever says that we do not live godly and just, should ask themselves what source such allegations originated from. Be very careful with claims that have not been personally verified, because the Bible says:

Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. (James 4:11)

But here in Paraguay, we are very happy that that those things happen, because it is written that Jesus personally prophesied:

Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. (John 15:20)

May God give you wisdom and understanding.

March 7, 2014: NEW CHARTS

New Charts

We would like to inform our readers that Robert and John are working simultaneously on two large sets of studies. Robert will assemble detailed accounts of the first 636 days of the Judgment of the Living which have already past, while John is writing on a series of articles about the last 624 days before probation will close. In these articles, we will publish all our biblical study results from our private study forum.

For his sermon on January 31, 2014, John had very little preparation time since he had received the new light about the Orion trumpet and plague cycles just the night before. Therefore, he prepared two date tables for the trumpet and plague cycles which were based on approximations from the Judgment Cycle at a resolution of 168 units. At that time, we still had no computational method for the more accurate resolutions of the Orion Clock with 624 or 336 days.

As part of the work on these new series of articles, we’ve now developed a highly accurate method for determining the dates in all Orion cycles. This resulted in minor changes from 1 to 3 days on a few of the dates in comparison to the tables shown in the sermon of January 31, 2014. Since time is short, we are already publishing the corrected charts for the trumpet and plague cycles in the download section of this homepage. As always, you can download the charts in two qualities - for screen presentations or for printing posters. We ask for your prayers as we work under great time pressure on a huge amount of study material.

May 10, 2017: THE ELIJAH SIGNS (Signs in Heaven)

The Elijah Signs

Chances are good that you have probably heard about the Great Sign in heaven to take place on September 23, 2017, when the imagery of Revelation 12:1 is displayed in the starry heavens.

And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: (Revelation 12:1)

The sign has gained widespread notoriety, because it is reportedly the ONLY TIME that this sign has ever come together in the past 7000 years.

Yet, aside from the discovery of the sign itself, the meaning of the sign is much less understood. With this 6-part sermon, that is no longer the case! Watch, as not only does this great sign come alive with deep meaning and significance, but a complete set of SEVEN heavenly signs are revealed that are amazingly reflected in the texts of the seven trumpets of Revelation. Jesus, the center of all of our studies, revealed the understanding of these seven signs right in time.

The trick is to know when to look, and as anyone vaguely familiar with this ministry knows, the Lord revealed to us months ago—before we knew anything about the Great Sign—the details of the last trumpet cycle, which provided the dates on God’s clock for when to look up and see these seven additional signs.

That’s right, each of the seven dates of the current trumpet cycle have an associated sign in heaven that corresponds beautifully with the text of the trumpet! If you were surprised at the rarity of the Great Sign, then you will surely be astounded when you see what God illustrated in the heavens to get your attention before Jesus throws down the censer and stops interceding for humanity! Heed the trumpet warnings before it’s too late!

This is the message that God has entrusted to the last Elijah. It is a message that is calculated to turn the hearts of fathers and children alike to God, and therefore to each other. In this sermon, you will learn how God has been preparing to give this message, and the crises of understanding that had to be overcome before it could be received for what it is. Not only is the starry revelation presented, but the clear, biblical understanding of each sign is presented. From beginning to end, precious gems of truth revealed in this video series will make your faces shine as you behold the wonders in heaven above that Joel prophesied.

May you be among the good wheat, ripened by the latter rain and gathered with God’s sickle into His barn.


May 25, 2015: WOMEN'S ORDINATION BRINGS SUNDAY LAW

John preached this sermon on June 29, 2013, and now the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to issue its ruling on same-sex marriage on the same date two years later. The accuracy and relevance of this sermon have urged us to include it here! It lays a solid foundation for understanding what is happening now, especially in light of the Death of the Twins article. Below the video is a brief list of the wide range of pertinent subjects that it covers.

Sermon from Sabbath, June 29, 2013.

  • 100% success rate of present-day time prophecy
  • ... and more!

A complete transcript of the sermon can be read at Women's Ordination brings Sunday Law.


February 10, 2014: NEW SERMON - THE LAST RACE

The night before his sermon on Sabbath evening, January 31, 2014 John realized through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, how the last seven trumpets and the seven plagues are marked in Orion. The last race for the 144,000 started exactly on Sabbath, February 1 with the sound of the first trumpet of the last days. Please watch the sermon and then read below what has already come to pass.

Sermon from Sabbath eve, January 31, 2014.
Please click CC in the player to activate the subtitles.

The first trumpet in a literal interpretation clearly points to volcanic activity: “The first angel sounded, and there followed hail [stones that are ejected from a volcano] and fire [lava] mingled with blood [persons will die], and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.”

What happened already at the beginning of the phase of the first trumpet on the very first day, February 1, 2014?

  1. Eruption of Sinabung on Sumatra leaves at least 16 dead
  2. For more information about what happened since then, read Trumpets with a Certain Sound

May 2017: THE ELIJAH PROMISE (3 part article series)

The Elijah Promise

Malachi prophesied that Elijah would come just before the great and dreadful day of the Lord. This series will show you that he has indeed come at every critical point in history, including today! You will learn who he is, and what his work entails. You will see who the faithful Elijahs of past generations were, and how each one fulfilled part of the prophecy and added to our understanding of what the last Elijah must accomplish. You will learn who the last Elijah is, and why you can be certain that he (and you) will not miss seeing the coming of the Lord, as his predecessors did. Finally, you will see how signs and wonders are accompanying the modern Elijah, and how the characteristic fire from heaven of his namesake will bring the world to a decision point to serve God or Satan, and how he equips this generation to be faithful to God through the time of trouble.

For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. (Malachi 4:1)


November 22, 2016: THE SACRIFICE OF PHILADELPHIA

The Sacrifice of PhiladelphiaOur new study website White Cloud Farm continues the articles of LastCountdown and begins with a four-part series about the second phase of God's time proclamation as it was prophcied more than 170 years ago. A sacrifice was needed that God would grant even more grace to humanity: the sacrifice of Philadelphia.

In this series, you will find an account from four different perspectives, of our experience and understanding that led to the birth of this new phase of ministry. You will read of a profound revelation that God gave us and our experience in trying to communicate the things of God to this pitiable generation. Details are shared from the experience that God brought us through until we were ready to make the sacrifice of Philadelphia, along with an insider view of our hopes and fears; our pain and joy. It is the story of God’s leading of His little children and the development of our understanding in the process, both of our past experience, and what we see in the years ahead. May God bless you as you read.


August 12, 2016: ANCHORED IN TIME

It is the Lord!Armageddon. It's the ultimate battle of the ages, whose name is synonymous with apocalyptic conflict and devastation. Where will it be fought, and with what weapons? These are important questions for one who wants to come out alive! And the answers are finally available!

In this last article Anchored in Time, we trace the Last Countdown to its last tick, and point you to what really matters in your preparation to meet the Lord at last when He comes. Armor up for the battle, because you just might be thrown a curve ball! It's the ultimate devilish deception that is calculated to make the elect fall, but rest assured, the Lord has given ample provision, revealing His secrets to His servants as they are needed. Don't be caught in the dark!

To what is your faith anchored? Will your anchor hold against the fiendish onslaught of fiery darts precisely calculated to break it free? This is too weighty a matter to presume we will be strong enough for. We must have a solid assurance, and it is the purpose of the Revelation to provide that assurance for us! Will you receive this gift of God from Jesus' right hand?


March 26, 2016: IT IS THE LORD!

It is the Lord!The Spirit of truth guides us into all truth. We want Him to continue guiding you into all truth too, which is why we share this update to our four-author article series. It is not important who the writers are, but that it testifies of Jesus Christ. This addendum will show you a multifaceted picture of Jesus that has never been seen before. It is like a time-lapse photograph of Him in prophetic language!

He who knows our need before we ask, already had an answer when we asked Him about the harvest, and the light we share in this addendum not only addresses that subject, but offers solutions to other age-old enigmas that have challenged Bible students everywhere. Discover the time advantage, and why it is that this ministry is the one God has chosen to reveal these secrets to. Our God is an awesome God, so prepare to be amazed!


February 11, 2016: THE HOUR OF TRUTH

The Hour of TruthDo you know the time of your visitation, and are you aware that the Hour of Truth has come? Satan will soon have his hour with the beast, and then Jesus, the Word of God, will get His hour—the hour of Truth, of Life and of the Door, through which many more shall yet enter and embark with us for the journey through Orion into the Kingdom of God.

This, the last article that you will receive from my quill, was written for the honor of God and to gather the great flock which—like the 144,000 before them—should reflect the love that Jesus has shown to us. May He point the Way to the Door of eternity and bestow on you the Crown of Time. It is my desire to forever sing with you there this song of glorious praise about the love of God—the song that you need to learn now.

Hence, Jesus’ prayer for unity in truth has become my prayer too:

Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. (John 17:17-19)


February 5, 2016: THE TIME OF HARVEST

The Time of HarvestSince the time of Noah, humanity has been trusting in the promise of God:

While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. (Exodus 8:22)

They believe that the earth is continuing to turn and everything is like it has always been. They sow and harvest, feast, laugh, dance, build, and marry… in such a way as if nothing could go wrong. But they forget to take a look at the end and to lift up their heads, for they know not the time of their visitation.

But the time comes, the day comes, when God will let the last seed mature and will harvest the good wheat from it, the “remnant of her seed” (Revelation 12:17). And this point of time has now come, whether you like it or not! In a few months, the earth will stop giving and maintaining life. The promise to Noah will reach its final fulfilment!

The overdue wheat of the earth is only crying out: “Lord, thrust in thy sickle and reap,” because the abominations have reached unto heaven! Wherever you look, there is mockery and scorn in answer to the warnings of God. But at the time of the harvest—which is now—everyone will reap what he has sown. God sowed the good seed and so He will bring in the good wheat. Satan, on the other hand, will receive all the bundles of tares and the grapes of Rome, which will be served to him over the fire of the plagues.

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap. For he that sows to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that sows to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. (Galatians 6:7-8)

The sickle has been whetted; it is sharp and ready for stoke after stroke. Come and read this article to know when it will happen!


January 29, 2016: THE GREAT SEAL

The Great SealMany centuries ago, King Hezekiah sealed a document by pressing his seal into a small lump of clay. Little could he know what an impact that insignificant action would have one day! While the world sees value in it because of the importance of Hezekiah, God meant much more with it. He who knows the end from the beginning, led in the affairs of men so that the announcement of this significant discovery would be made at an even more significant time!

Do you understand the times in which we live? Do you discern the timing, by which last day events occur? In this article, evidence from the Temple Mount in Jerusalem adds to the mountains of evidence already presented, and brings a beautiful message of blessing for those who understand and believe in the messages of the clocks of God. May you also partake of that blessing, is our prayer!


January 23, 2016: THE HOLY GRAIL

The Holy GrailThis four-part series of articles represents the Holy Grail of the Christian faith. As such, it challenges the uniting of all religions as Pope Francis, the representative of the entire Catholic world (not to say the entire world), is seeking to bring to pass. His teaching reduces the belief in Jesus Christ to a mere belief in so-called “love,” but what he misses is that not all religions offer the same caliber of love.

Does your belief in Jesus Christ put a kind of love in your heart that is no different than that of any other religion? I assure you that after ingesting this first article in this series, you will not view the Christian faith in such a trivial light. Our aim, aside from writing out of a sense of the sheer love of truth for the glory of God, is to inspire sincere Catholics Christians (including Protestants and Catholics) to practice the kind of love that Jesus did, and we will present it to you in such a clear way that you will not be able to mistake it for anything less. The undiluted truth is in the cup that Jesus drank, and that is what this article is about.

Staying with the metaphor of the Holy Grail, we could say that Part 1 of this series is about the cup, what it contains, and what it means to drink it. Part 2 is about the certainty of the reward for those who drink it all. Part 3 is about the rightful heirs who discarded that priceless relic, thus making it available to you. Part 4 unpacks it for you to see, but not yet touch. That will come soon enough if you are faithful. Is it tantalizing? It is!


October 30, 2015: THE TEARS OF GOD

The Tears of GodSince 1846, it was prophesied that in the last days, a movement of Christians would arise who would proclaim to the day, two specific events:

John came in the spirit and power of Elijah to proclaim the first advent of Jesus. I was pointed down to the last days and saw that John represented those who should go forth in the spirit and power of Elijah to herald the day of wrath and the second advent of Jesus. {EW 155.1}

Since 2011, we proclaimed October 25, 2015 as the date of the commencement of the last seven plagues. The Vessel of Time specified this very day, and since we were able to determine the exact duration of the plagues from the study of the autumn sacrifices, we also know the date of Jesus’ return (see the countdown at the left).

On January 31, 2014, we received additional light about the trumpet and plague cycles with the respective exact dates for the individual trumpets and plagues. This is the theme of the sermon, The Last Race. It was also predicted that the fulfillment of the judgments of God according to Ezekiel 9 in the trumpet cycle, would in mercy be held by four "Holds" and four cries of "My blood" by Jesus (see The Resurrection of the Two Witnesses). These judgments have thus been postponed to the plague cycle, where they will finally be executed without mercy. Because hurricane "Patricia," the most powerful hurricane ever recorded, was also held back on October 24 and 25, we realized that the time of the first plague (the noisome sores) corresponds to a final exam by the Holy Spirit, and that the killing of Ezekiel 9 will not begin until the second plague comes on December 2, 2015.

What many believe was a blessing from God, when "Patricia" was held back, are indeed the Tears of God that He cries because of what He must do now. Read our new article to understand what it means to live in the time when grace is no more and the plagues are upon you.


September 22, 2015: THE DAY OF THE DEMON

The Day of the DemonThis article is for non-Adventists. It examines the European refugee crisis in depth, comparing it to two historical events: the Fall of Troy and the Piedmont Easter. It explores the Muslim’s trigger programming for the Great Jihad, and shows how plans have already been laid to initiate violence on a specific date.

The article closes with a call to urgent action to spread this message far and wide, and to prepare yourself spiritually ahead of that day, which will be the day of the demon that initiates the great tribulation such as never was since man was upon the earth.


September 5, 2015: IN THE SHADOW OF TIME

In the Shadow of TimeBiblical chronology outlines about 4000 years of history before Christ, and Peter’s statement that a day with the Lord is as a thousand years, has led many to mark the 2000th year after Jesus’ crucifixion as the year that He may return, rounding out six 1000-year workdays leading to the millennium of rest. Please allow us to explore this concept a little deeper, for in the shadow of time, another clock is hidden, adding another gem to every timekeeper’s treasure. It is a simple clock for the Modern Era, delineating the allotted time until the whole earth is to be filled with the glory of God.

The Father is inviting guests to His Son’s wedding, but many who were bidden have spurned their invitation. Now the invitation goes out to others. Come get your wedding garment—and while you’re at it, it would be a great help if you would perform the part of a servant, and go out to the highways with us, to gather all who are willing to come. The wedding is ready, but there are still many vacant seats. Come quickly, before the door is forever closed!


August 30, 2015: WILLIAM MILLER'S TREASURE

William Miller's TreasureWilliam Miller’s Dream describes the incorruptible treasure that God has in store for you. Have you looked into the treasures of Miller anew? Have you seen the jewels of his new casket shining with ten times the glory? What would you be willing to give in exchange for it?

While Babel is rising like a thief to take away all earthly treasure, now more than ever it is time to turn the affections of the heart heavenward.

But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (Matthew 6:20-21)


August 16, 2015: LIGHTENED WITH HIS GLORY

Lightened with His GloryWe invite you to come with us on a journey. It’s a journey through a little-appreciated, but amazingly beautiful realm of God’s creation: Time. As we travel, we will stop at the waymarks of Adventist history, we will fly back to Creation and speed through some of the highlights of biblical chronology before coming back and taking a closer look at the recent past in this summary of the Fourth Angel’s Message who comes so that Earth may be Lightened with His Glory

Like a little child, let’s go as inquirers, seeking to understand how God communicates. We hope you enjoy the experience and gain a new appreciation for God and His creation. We may experience a little turbulence on the way, though, so buckle your seat-belts! It is His purpose to draw His children to Himself, so if you realize that there are things you need to change in your life, know that Jesus waits with open arms to receive you.


July 19, 2015: THE RESURRECTION OF THE TWO WITNESSES

The Resurrection of the Two WitnessesThe verdict is in for the Challenge at Mount Carmel! The Two Witnesses were dead and have risen again! The Seventh-day Adventist World Church organization voted to close its own door of probation and now suffers the terrible consequences!

This article explains the meaning of the “no” vote on women's ordination and shows that the result is an example for even worse things to come this October.

Begin to prepare now, before your time also runs out!


June 21, 2015: THE VOMIT OF GOD AND THE CLOSE OF PROBATION

The Vomit of God and the Close of ProbationThe "Holy" Father (Pope Francis) is giving his full support to gay rights! Meanwhile, the SDA Church is trying to hush all voices that speak against women's ordination.

Our new article entitled The Vomit of God and the Close of Probation dispels the mist about what is happening today as we approach the appointed time of the Carmel Challenge. It covers many subjects, including:

  • Why Pope Francis chose Paraguay, of all places, for his "coming out"
  • Why LGBT tolerance (and women's ordination) is symbolized by locusts in the Bible
  • How the first five trumpets have fulfilled, and how they are getting louder for the big blast of the sixth trumpet
  • The prophetic significance of Stephen Bohr's retirement in relation to Ezekiel 9
  • The urgent need for the Lamb's bride to make herself ready

Don't forget to join OPERATION "TORRENT" to help distribute the message of the Fourth Angel!


May 25, 2015: THE DEATH OF THE TWINS - NATIONAL SUNDAY LAW IN JUNE!

The Death of the TwinsThis crucifixion anniversary (May 25, 2015) coincides with the true day of Pentecost, and we are pleased to announce the publication of a new article with crucial and timely information worthy of these two occasions.

The Death of the Twins will open your eyes to understand the two witnesses of the Apocalypse, the two tables of Testimony, the two institutions of Eden, and the two beasts of Revelation in a way you've never imagined.

Truly the hour is late!  This new information raises the stakes to a whole new level for the Challenge at Mount Carmel!

As God blesses you, bless others by spreading this word!

November 22, 2016: Opening of the «White Cloud Farm»

home whitecloudfarm

The End and the Beginning

The last second of the Last Countdown ended on October 24, 2016, without Jesus coming back as expected. It was apparently what our enemies wanted, but for reasons that are more than they bargained for. Their supposed victory turned into a devastating defeat for them. Instead of closing our ministry like the critics wanted, our mission work is flourishing with new freshness and with great strength given personally by God the Father.

Two new websites are emerging (the White Cloud Farm and the official High Sabbath Adventist Movement website), and all of the sites, including the forum of the 144,000, are now hosted on “cloud” servers, referring to the cloud that we would have liked to meet each other in, as High Sabbath Adventists, if Jesus had already returned.

He wanted to come too, and was actually on His way to Earth until with the help of the last seven rations of the Holy Spirit, we realized during the Feast of Tabernacles (October 17-23, 2016) that a great sacrifice was needed for a complete defeat of the enemies of God in the battle of Armageddon. We were not to stand before God almost emptyhanded, with just a few—the first fruits of our movement. We realized that there was still a large group that could be found if—and only if—there were more TIME.

That is why during the Feast of Tabernacles, with one voice all of the members of the movement decided to ask God the Father, like Joshua, to stay the Sun of Righteousness for a heavenly hour, thus delaying the return of Jesus for the according earthly years. That sacrifice to postpone our rapture prior to the time of divine judgment upon humanity made us indeed the first of the “church of Philadelphia,” or of brotherly love.

Jesus, when He was about to come again and already saw the world in front of Him, found what He had pleaded for: faith... the faith of Jesus... faith that is willing to suffer for others and to be a friend to the enemies. He found the patience of the saints.

God the Father had revealed the time to us—the day and hour of the coming of His Son—but we declined that gift because it would have been selfish of us to go alone and leave virtually all others behind. Now we are no longer time-setters, but together with Jesus we determine when it will be time for Him to come. Only God the Father knows at the moment when that will be.

The four first articles of this new study site, which is for the seven years of Ezekiel 39:9, are about that sacrifice. Brother Ray writes about why it is right to ask God the Father for time, and tells the story of a revelation of the character of God. I, John Scotram, have the honor of delivering a message from God, bringing to light awfully solemn things. Brother Robert, who has been bearing the heat of the jungles of Paraguay for years with me, will tell what happened before and during the Feast of Tabernacles here on the upper, dried-up corn fields where we pitched our tents. And last but not least, my faithful companion Gerhard will explain what exactly needs to be done in the remaining time which God the Father has granted.

May the Holy Spirit be poured out upon the just, like in the beginning. That is our wish for you.

Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil. (Joel 2:23-24)

December 27, 2015: Coming up: New four-part series “The End of the World”!

The Winepress of GodGod has given much additional light that confirms that we are indeed already in the time of the plagues, although humanity is lured into a false sense of security, because they interpret biblical texts incorrectly and too literally. This fulfills prophecy:

When the irrevocable decision of the sanctuary has been pronounced, and the destiny of the world has been forever fixed, the inhabitants of the earth will know it not. The forms of religion will be continued by a people from whom the Spirit of God has been finally withdrawn, and the Satanic zeal with which the prince of evil will inspire them for the accomplishment of his malignant designs, will bear the semblance of zeal for God.—The Great Controversy, 615 (1911). {LDE 231.2; CKB.163.5}

One last time, all four authors of our movement of the Fourth Angel have the word to gather the few who had the right attitude when the door of mercy closed on October 17/18, 2015 and who continue the process of sanctification, as the Bible says.

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. (Revelation 22:11)

This series, which we call "The End of the world", will show:

  1. That the time of plagues began on time on October 25, 2015.
  2. What events have already taken place and what their outcome will be.
  3. What signs and wonders are now accompanying the movement of the Fourth Angel.
  4. That all the dates on the plagues cycle of the Orion Clock are exact to the very day.
  5. From when and until when, the weeds are bound into bundles to be burnt up.
  6. When Jesus will start to use the sickle to harvest the good wheat (to gather the remnant of God's people) and when the light of the Fourth Angel will start to lighten the earth.
  7. When the vintage of the bad grapes will begin and the winepress of blood will be trodden.
  8. When the fireballs, which we expected at the Carmel challenge, will fall.
  9. When Satan will obtain complete power over the earth, and how long his hour with the nations will last, according to Revelation 17:12.
  10. When the hour of the destruction of the great city Babylon will come and how long it will last (see Revelation 18:10).
  11. That Jesus Christ will come on time on October 23/24, 2016.
  12. How long our journey to the sea of ​​glass—the Orion Nebula—will really take, and what we will experience along the way.

And you will learn from this series whether you, personally, can still belong to the church of Philadelphia, or whether you will be part of the feast of the fowls of Revelation 19:21.

We plan to publish this series all at once after its completion before the end of January. We would like to ask those who are on our side to pray for the authors and for the work of the 144,000. Thank you.


August 23, 2014: IMITATIONS OF THE ORION MESSAGE

Even in the days of early Christianity, the message of the apostles was distorted and false teachers defaced the teaching of Christ. The apostle Peter confronted one of these deceivers with the following words:

Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee. For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity. (Acts 8:21-23)

We hereby distance ourselves expressly from some people who present parts of the doctrines of our ministry and claim to spread the teachings of John Scotram. In truth, they only represent their own teachings and distort the message of the Fourth Angel, often beyond recognition. We therefore warn you to beware of the following people:

A German “Brother Rubin” who also goes by the name “Joseph Sichem” or “Daniel Freund” and claims to be supported by a “dreamer” whom he calls “Deborah aus Ägypten” (Deborah of Egypt). After our many warnings to him, he does not cease to broadcast his false teachings and distort the true Orion Message. He has written to several leaders such as Walter Veith, Johannes Kolletzki or Nicola Taubert; we assure you that we have nothing to do with this man, except that he never ceases to harass us. He has his own timeline with pure time-setting and not even a mention of the true Fourth Angel’s Message with the Last Generation Theology, the consequences to the universe due to a possible failure and the necessary readiness of the 144,000 to sacrifice, as we have set forth at the end of The Mystery of Ezekiel.

In Samoa, there is a “brother” Satui Sefo, who claims to lead an organization by the name of “Samoan Missionary Society (SMS)”. The name is inspired by the “International Missionary Society (IMS)” of the Reform Movement, which organization he and some other families have left. He teaches a different time line than we do, which no longer points to the Seventh-day Adventist Church. He makes the same mistake of completely brushing aside our high calling and is thus a pure time-setter without the true message for the 144,000.

We hope that you will not be confused by these false teachers or by their “time messages” which do not “bear the special marks of His hand.” {1T 409.1} We pray that they, like Simon Magus, will respond:

Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the Lord for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me. (Acts 8:24)

Since March 11, 2017: Prophecies Fulfilled

home shofar cycle 250A new section "Prophecies Fulfilled" on our second study website White Cloud Farm continues the "World News" of our Last Countdown website.

In our anxiety and desperation to bring salvation to at least a few remaining true Christians, who still believe in Satan’s lies in one way or another even though God’s clock hands point to all of His valid and life-essential rules and teachings, we asked for more time. God knew our request before we asked it, and for that reason, He only let the Bible texts fulfill partially during the first trumpet cycle. Thus, He opened the possibility for the second and last trumpet cycle, which completes the first and runs parallel to it from November 22, 2016 until the beginning of the plagues on August 20, 2018.

One last time, scoffers and doubters have an opportunity to experience even more serendipitous fulfillments at the “clock times” indicated by God—this time under the more challenging requirement that specific parts of the trumpet text must be fulfilled, which had not yet been fulfilled in the first pass. Will this lead some wavering ones to believe when it comes to pass?

The countdown is ticking. After the sixth (complementary) trumpet, there will be no more repentance nor conversion. Receive and accept the gene of life, and God will grant you eternity!


November 12, 2015: Ben Carson Caught Violating Twins He Separated!

Ben Carson Caught Violating Twins He Separated With all of the publicity that Ben Carson has been getting lately, it seemed appropriate to share a personal experience I, Ray Dickinson, had that revealed an unexpected, but significant detail about him. Although I had the utmost respect for him in past years, I have come to realize (especially during his presidential campaign) that he may not have all the integrity that his background generally indicates.

We believe the public should know and understand the implications of this, and we present it with the hopes that you will not just pick up another bit of information on Dr. Carson, but that you will recognize that there is a war being waged on earth that is far greater than any human conflict. We hope that this will awaken you to the presence of that greater reality, so that your focus will be directed to the voice of God from heaven rather than being lost on earthly details. Then, with clear vision, you can make a clear choice.


August 11, 2015: Babel Rising - And You Thought It Was Just A Game

Babel Rising - And You Thought It Was Just A Game The final rapid movements of earth’s history are finishing up right before our eyes. You can kiss your personal freedoms and unalienable rights good-bye (if you still have any)...because the One-World Government HAS BEEN APPROVED, and will become effective in September this year, when all 193 nation states of the world will sign away their sovereignty, and Satan will take full control of the world. The Tower of Babel is rising again.

RUN, if you are still a member of any Church organization! Find out what you need to personally live for (or die for) before probation closes on this October 17!


June 5, 2015: Jade Helm - Military Blockade Against God's Witnesses

Jade Helm - Military Blockade Against God's Witnesses There is a lot of talk in the US about the Jade Helm military exercise. But what is it really about? You might not guess that it has anything to do with the authority of God in your life, but this world news brief explains how its logo shows that those who continue to uphold God’s authority in their relationships will be persecuted, even by the military.

It is a very serious subject that involves everyone, not only in the US, but around the globe. And it is up close and personal—perhaps even painful. Let it bring you to Jesus for healing. No matter what we experience on this earth, standing for the truth is worth all that it might cost.

It will not be long, and it will all be over. Be faithful to the Wounded One, Alnitak and let’s meet in the cloud!


May 7, 2015: Capital Crime: Pope Francis Kidnaps God’s Bride! (Isaiah 62:5)

Capital Crime: Pope Francis Kidnaps God’s Bride! (Isaiah 62:5) The SDA Church was kidnapped by Pope Francis and his accomplices like Ted Wilson. Now they plan to forcibly silence the people of God in the last bastion.

This news article affirms that “the church is not Babylon” while clearly drawing the lines where they belong between the sheep and the wolves.

In the end, you will learn what truly defines God’s remnant church. Are you included in the definition yet?


May 1, 2015: Rape Attempt Foiled in Sodom: LGBTQISDA Church Blinded by Four Angels (Gen. 19)

Rape Attempt Foiled in Sodom: LGBTQISDA Church Blinded by Four Angels (Gen. 19) In its General Conference Session brochure, the SDA Church announces that it will reach the UNTHINKABLE goal of changing its policy to grant equal treatment to homosexuals this July. Some parts of the church (Adventist Health in Florida, for example) have already set aside God's law on the matter in order to comply with man's (state) law.

This World News brief gives an eye-opening perspective on just how deeply embroiled the last truly Protestant church has become in this mess.

If you find these circumstances disturbing—as you should—I can only urge you to read Fire at Mount Carmel, and take the challenge seriously. The spiritual battle is intense, and it is high time to put your full strength on the Lord’s side.


April 28, 2015: Hidden Agenda Revealed: Will SDA Church Elect Female President?

Women in Leadership In the official brochure for the 60th Session of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, the church leadership has communicated their agenda for the Session. The language they selected for the brochure is the universal language of symbols.

The General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists selected the Eastern Star of Freemasonry to represent the church, when they should have selected the star Alnitak, which means “the Wounded One” who is at the center of the Orion clock in the eastern heavens.

The masonic star on the 2015 Session brochure shows in symbolic language that the masterminds behind the GC have already decided that the ordination of women will be approved for the World Church during this Session.

As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths. (Isaiah 3:12)

Read the full news brief to find out why the church has been so decided on reaching this goal of allowing women in leadership.


April 12, 2015: SDA Church President Ted Wilson Caught in Bed with “Five Whores”! (Rev. 2:22)

Ted Wilson with Ban Ki-Moon SDA Church president Ted Wilson meets brothel-keeper Ban Ki-moon and lands in bed with Pope Franci's whores.

The Adventist Review explains the purpose of the meeting:

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon expressed concerns about growing religious intolerance worldwide during a private meeting with Adventist Church leader Ted N.C. Wilson...

Our news report explains how for a long time now, Ted Wilson has been working toward the UN’s Millennium Development Goals--which he calls "shared goals." Ted Wilson has almost completely adapted the church to the New World Order agenda, but he needs the 2015 GC Session's approval vote on several key points.

Read the article to find out why Ban Ki-moon is concerned, and why Ted Wilson is feeling the heat.


April 7, 2015: State senator calling for Sunday Law finds Seventh-day Adventists sleeping at the wheel

Sunday LawArizona Senator Sylvia Allen transmitted a secret message while recommending the creation of a law that would require every American to attend church on Sunday.

Her comments reveal Satan’s agenda, fulfill prophecy (even time prophecy) and secretly point the finger at High Sabbath Adventists by saying that a person who wants to do violence will use a “clock in a courtroom” just as well as a knife. High Sabbath Adventists are the ones who use the Clock of God in the Courtroom of Heaven to expose the papacy, and that is why they are vilified as being equal to a violent killer.

In Senator Allen’s remarks, you can see the real-life fulfillment of another prophecy of Ellen White:

In legislative halls and courts of justice, commandment keepers will be misrepresented and condemned. A false coloring will be given to their words; the worst construction will be put upon their motives. {GC 592.1}

March 24, 2015: 10 Reasons Why the Eclipse of March 20 Was Prophetic

Ten Reasons From a strictly astronomical perspective, the total solar eclipse of March 20, 2015 was special because it was very rare, but that’s not all. The biblical aspect offers several more features to make the eclipse special.

The blotting out of Satan’s usurped kingdom is prophesied to come in “the day of the Lord,” which is a reference to the time when God will pour out His wrath upon the world in the seven last plagues.

The darkening of the sun and moon prophesied by Isaiah adds several more criteria to pinpoint this eclipse. Although there have been similar eclipses in the past, these 10 criteria have never all been completely fulfilled since Isaiah’s words were recorded, until now.
