The “Who” Reveals the “What”
The “What” Reveals the “Who”
The Seventh Seal Opened
By Michael unto the Author
If there is a death in the family of a distant relative and we receive notification that we are remembered with a monetary amount from the deceased’s estate as our inheritance, how would we know that the person showing up at the door was the person or executor of the will authorized to disseminate the monetary amount or inheritance to us? If his name matches the name on the notification that we received, this is one indicator, but not enough to solidify he is that executor to give us our inheritance. However, when he reaches in his brief case and hands us the amount in question as a check drawn on the estate of the deceased, which we then cash at the bank verifying our inheritance in hand, we can be sure he is the executor by what we received from him.
In reverse if a man shows up at our door and hands us a check drawn on the estate of the deceased for the amount stated in the will without introducing himself, we can be reasonably sure on the preponderance of this evidence that he is the executor, further verified by him giving us his name. One proves the other. One complements the other.
Messiah Coming in the Name Identified in the Bible
Dispensing the Anointing, Thus Proves He Is Messiah.
If We Received the Anointing, from the Man
With the Name Identified in the Bible to Dispense It
Then that Man IS Messiah.
The Anointing is the Holy Spirit,
The Mindset of God in Messiah
Communicated to Us, Giving Us
A Clear Foundational Understanding of Truth
That Leads into ALL Further Truth.
The silence in Revelation 8:1 is what one hears if he is still sealed out, no understanding. We will discuss the relevance of the “half hour” shortly. However, once the seal is opened we have “WHO,” it is that will bring Redemption. Christians will say that it is Jesus Christ. Jews will say it is Messiah. They both are correct, but under what name??? We must have understanding how it applies to the coming of Messiah and in what name he MUST come, in the FINAL and FULL Redemption and Resurrection. Otherwise we have received a deception, brought in the wrong name, and therefore we have received an antichrist, imbibed a false message as being the truth.
Now those nominal and elementary in their study of the Bible will immediately go to the Book of Philippians and rightly raise question because Apostle Paul says:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
The Question Then Rises from the Serious Seeker
To what “Jesus” or “Jesus Christ” would every knee bow? He said in Matthew 24:4-5, that many would come in that name and deceive many. It must be Messiah, proven to be so, by revealing the truth in the Sealed Book.
What Book Is Opened,
Once the Seals Are Removed???
Like the other truths behind the previous seals, once they are opened we can see they are plainly in the Bible bringing the Bible into a perspective not seen before. Therefore, the Book, in the hand of God on the throne taken by the Lamb and opened, is the Law and the Prophets which once opened for understanding clarifies the New Testament and especially the Book of Revelation, all heretofore NOT UNDERSTOOD, but coming to clarity once opened by Messiah unto us. This also can be termed opening the Book of Redemption. Again, we see the complementary relationship. On one hand, Messiah opens the Seals to us proving he is Messiah. On the other, the Seals being opened to us can only come from One Source, Messiah. The Seals, stated to be upon the backside of The Book in Revelation 5, being opened or loosed, “the precept upon precept,” “line upon line,” of the Word of the Lord as stated in Isaiah 28:7-20, are then orderly, thus showing proper progression and the end in view.
Previously the Bible, well proven by the various interpretations and sects of religion claiming insight, remained confusing so that we would fall backward and are taken by a carnal and childlike view. Messiah, the same one in Isaiah 28 that has the “plummet” and “line,” puts things in the proper sequence, by proper interpretation. Like so many pieces of an enormous jigsaw puzzle that are assimilated from one’s kitchen table to form the correct picture on the front of the box containing those pieces, God, as to His nature toward us, appears then in a more mature light for maturing Sons. We begin to understand His purpose in the overall way He has dealt with mankind through history to this point. In bringing that understanding, the childlike view and the lack of confidence we have toward Him, begins to dissipate as His purpose in us becomes clear.
The Book of Redemption Opened
It is in this manner we say the Seals, once removed, also opens the Book of Redemption. Therefore, Messiah brings Redemption in that he opens the book removing the seals. It is the knowledge and understanding contained in the Sealed Book that brings Redemption. Redemption is only relevant when something is lost and needs to be recovered. It is specifically in modern times referenced when something is “pawned” or “placed in hock” for a loan against that “something” or “merchandise.” When the merchandise is redeemed, it has the loan or price returned to the pawnbroker where the object can be freed from all liens and responsibilities and given back to the original owner. When Adam left his first estate of confidence in God and died spiritually, he put into hock his link with God, which is life, for the reward of acting (as he thought) as a separate entity from God, being a minor god under the illusion of self-destiny and freewill. A price was required for him to have that proper life and connection with God returned. The price required was Adam’s death to his understanding that he thought was life. To put it another way, Adam’s price, and therefore our price we must pay for redemption, is dying to death, “death” being our false understanding. In other words, he died initially by taking his own understanding, but did not realize what the ‘death’ was. He only knew his link to God was lost, which also took his confidence away as well, yielding an existence of fear and uncertainty depending on one’s own decision, making process. As we have shown previously in Section X, this is “death” with “hell” following as part of this package in contrast to “life” and “heaven” which are God’s mindset and the confident existence following from being in the seat of true understanding respectively. Only recognizing that he was dead and thereby accepting that his understanding was wrong, being the death or instrument of death, could he pay the price of death, killing or cutting off the false understanding, which is required so that he could receive life which is proper understanding. We must pay back to the pawnbroker / God, . . . the amount we borrowed, which is OUR perceived understanding of self-destiny. We must give that back to God in order to redeem or receive again what we put in hock which is our link with God in confidence and truth. Ousted from Eden, Adam and Eve propagated the race of mankind, as a dead race spiritually, that is awaiting redemption back to what Adam and Eve first had, as well as the completion of that process they aborted which stopped their proper growth in the knowledge and understanding of God. It is the proper understanding or coming to the full mindset of God, that would have brought them to maturity as true and completed Sons of God even as Messiah is. This redemption is by a proper understanding and life replacing our false understanding and death. It is Messiah that is completed as a Son in the first instance. This completion called also “the adoption” or official recognition by God of his completed Son then endows that Son to be able to produce other Sons of God by instilling in them the same understanding that will come to maturity in them as well.
Now that is exactly what Paul presents as the point of Christ’s death, burial and resurrection. We must die as Christ died, but rather spiritually in application, and be raised in newness of life or in the new understanding which is life. It is in mindset or the understanding where Adam fell short bringing death spiritually. In that spiritual death, he was cut off from God by having a wrong understanding that he thought was correct. That very wrong understanding IS the death whereby he died.
Now thinking we are alive as we are born into the world with our sense of self-determination, freewill, and choice, we must pay the price of redemption, even as Christ died physically, by dying spiritually, or no longer believing we are self-determined, free-moral-agents, but rather are indeed God’s Sons with God doing and thinking all we do or think. Thereby we are redeemed by paying the price of death - cutting off the concept of self-destiny, freewill, and choice as being false, dead, and to be no longer considered, we then rise, or . . . then are redeemed back to our status with God that Adam lost. At that point, we are brought further past what Adam had in part; we are brought to full understanding and maturity as manifested Sons of God. We have access to what Messiah has, provided we die to our life and understanding, which is indeed death, and acquire his mindset and understanding which is indeed life. In short, this is what it meant to Paul when stressing in Hebrews that the believers in profession go on to perfection by entering in with Christ to the full understanding which is the Heavenly Holy of Holies.
Uncertainty: Hell Follows or Accompanies Death
Confidence was lost due to Adam not being in the full understanding and yet proceeding to act as if he indeed had full understanding. From that point, he died or was spiritually cut off from a proper understanding of God and therefore life, by taking what he perceived to be his own understanding. Thus, when mankind is redeemed it will be by the understanding Adam lost, along with confidence and trust in God as Sovereign that accompanies it, being restored. This is what also delivers one from hell which is the uncertain existence of depending upon oneself and its accompanying lack of confidence. Adam did not attain to God’s image and likeness which was the goal for him, but stopped short. When having the revelation of truth opened behind the Seals given to us based upon Messiah’s voice of truth opening the Book of Redemption and giving us eternal life via giving us proper understanding, we are redeemed back to our relationship of confidence in God and life which Adam lost. In fact, we are carried even further to Full Son maturity; something Adam never had, the goal in God’s statement “let us make man in our image and likeness,” even as Messiah also is.
The Meaning of Redeemed by Messiah’s Blood
For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that makes an atonement for the soul.
A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones.
I Peter 1:18-25
18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.
22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which lives and abides forever.
24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower thereof falls away:
25 But the word of the Lord endures forever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
As we have pointed out numerous times, the Apostles, and those taught directly by them, entered with FULL understanding into the Heavenly Holy of Holies. Therefore they, and those to whom they wrote their letters, understood properly the terms and uses of them as the Apostles also did. THIS IS NOT THE UNDERSTANDING IN CHRISTENDOM TODAY WHICH IS VOID OF THE SPIRIT OF FULL UNDERSTANDING, prior to this message here of full disclosure. As seen above from Leviticus 17:11, compared with Proverbs 14:30, and carried forward into Peter’s Epistle, the life of the flesh is in the blood and a sound heart (understanding) is the life of the flesh. Peter says in verse 23, we are born again by the WORD of GOD. Of course, he is referring to receiving the Word given by him and the Apostles in truth that was received by them from Messiah.
Bringing All Factors Together
Now putting this together with all that has been stated leading to this place in our publication, the answer is simply this. The understanding of truth, the voice of Messiah in clarity, as revealed in the opening of the Seals, is the life, the mind, and viewpoint of God that is in Messiah; thus, it is Messiah’s knowledge, understanding, and wisdom that brings us to life as well when given to us. It is the new birth replacing or superseding our first, carnal fleshly birth as natural men. It brings us higher to our spiritual birth as spiritual men and Sons of God. The sound heart of which Proverbs speaks has nothing to do with the physical organ of the heart as literalism may view this, nor does the blood have anything to do with the physical blood as well. It is what is symbolized or in them spiritually that is the point. With the shed blood of Christ fulfilling the Passover Lamb aspect of the spring Holy Days, joined with his resurrection, we came 7 Weeks later to Pentecost. On the basis of the life given up of Messiah, which is what we see in the blood shed, we have that same life, mindset, understanding that was in Messiah given to Peter and the others concerning the fulfillment of Pentecost called “receiving the Holy Spirit.” It is in the whole process applied to us spiritually with understanding, that Christ performed physically and literally, whereby we understand that we must die to self-determination, freewill and choice, or self-destiny even as he died literally and be raised in HIS life or in his mindset and understanding on the other side of death in resurrection.
This again, as we have stated earlier a few paragraphs ago, brings mankind back to where Adam hocked his link with God for the false understanding, which is death and separation from God – self-destiny. It is being born again of the Word, the Voice of truth in Messiah, the clear understanding of Sovereignty and God’s meticulous control, that we are brought to real eternal life. We are then placed upon the foundation and link to God from where all subsequent growth will proceed from that point as Sons of God. The blood is the life given up that comes back to us in Messiah’s understanding or life in us. This gives us the inheritance that mankind forfeited, and stopped short of, from the beginning; hence, it is redemption restoring that which was lost.
Redemption for All and Not Just Israel
As we also detailed in Section VIII, the cross of Messiah where the blood was shed is the symbol of Christ’s rejection whereby the open door of access was given to the Gentiles. Therefore, by his blood or life, the redemption is extended as it states in Revelation 5:9 outside of the ranks of physical Israel, bringing in those – “out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.” The life given up witnessed in the shed blood by means of Christ’s rejection and crucifixion, opened that door of access to the full understanding of God called the “Holy Spirit” secluded previous solely for Israel. The point we wish to stress here is that the physical entity of the blood itself redeemed nothing. It was the blood that redeemed via the life of, or “in” the flesh – the understanding within Messiah – the sound heart of understanding in that truth, knowledge, and revelation held behind the Seven Seals that Messiah gives, which indeed redeems and brings us back in connection with God, allowing us to continue on to be created in God’s image and likeness as the finish of our journey which was aborted and lost in Adam some 6000 years ago.
In What Name Will Our Inheritance,
Our Promised Redemption, Come???
In researching the Will and Testament of that Inheritance, the Bible, we have the name of Messiah in FULL Redemption at the end time in a name “written” according to Revelation 19:11-13 where it states:
… he has a name written, that no man knew but he himself…
It goes on to say:
… his name is called the Word of God…
In Revelation 2:17 we see it is he that overcomes that is given:
… a white stone, and in that stone a new name written, which no man knows saving he that receives it…
In Revelation 3:12 we see again to him that overcomes:
… I (Jesus Christ that is talking in this scripture to John) will write upon him my new name…
In Revelation 3:21 we see the first and primary overcomer, as the example to others to overcome, is Messiah:
To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
Now just where do we expect to find this name that IS ALREADY written that only Messiah knows is his name for the Final Appearing or Second Coming in victory??? Where else but the Law and the Prophets, where it says in Isaiah 52, in speaking of the final Redemption of Israel in verse 6:
Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know IN THAT DAY (once Messiah is here and reveals it with understanding, even as he did with the Apostles) that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I.
Clearly it is indeed written in the Law and the Prophets and is Michael, the Great Prince of Daniel 10:21 and 12:1-7. In short Jesus of the New Testament returns under a new name, which is not a new name just decided out of thin air, but the one he had all along “written” in the Law and the Prophets. We see it is Michael the Archangel, or Chief Messenger of the Covenant according to Malachi 3:1, which is the proper translation of Jude 9:
9 Yet Michael the archangel (Chief Messenger), when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
As the other earlier believers with pure truth that entered the Holy of Holies with Christ and therefore had the Holy Spirit that brings understanding wherewith they wrote the letters in the New Testament, Jude was speaking from the Law and the Prophets and in particular,
1 And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.
2 And the Lord said unto Satan, The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan; even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?
So, we see in Jude 9 it says Michael said: “the Lord rebuke thee.” In Zechariah 3:2, it says the Lord said these words. Therefore, Michael and the Lord is the same person. This meaning is displayed by Paul in his statements in I Thessalonians 4:13-5:11 as they compare with Jesus words in John 5:24-29 when he says in verse 16:
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
And then Jesus states in John 5:24-29:
“ . . . the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God . . .”
Bias Caused by False Interpretation Fed to Us over the Centuries by the Blind Leaders of the Blind
With No Authority to Teach the Bible
We need to remove from our view, those preconceived fantasies based upon the interpretation of literalism in the false “doctrine of angels” presented by the false prophets and their erroneous teaching of a race of superhuman creatures leftover from a previous creation that do the Lord’s bidding. This concept is forced in our faces over many centuries when heathen principles and fables entered into Jewish and Christian ranks. They are staring out at us from “pictured” Bibles and out of the famous art works of many artists down through the centuries, not only in their paintings and sculptures, but in their commissions to build the cathedrals of Roman Catholicism and later Protestantism.
The Source of This Confusion and Mixture
This can be traced, for the most part, back to gods and goddesses of Greek and Roman mythology. Jews, since their time in Egypt, Assyria, and Babylon, as depicted in Ezekiel 23-24, well witnessed in their departures into idolatry, and Christian ranks as well, from the time of the supposed conversion of Roman Emperor Constantine, have the mix of heathen cultures with the Bible. All of this was handed back to the people from tradition and religion proliferated and riddled with these superstitious teachings. They then SEEMINGLY appear supported by the Bible. However, this is ONLY upon one first believing in those superstitious teachings, being under these views as a child in “Sunday School” or instruction governed by some “church liturgy,” and THEN reading the Bible through that view as one matures into physical adulthood. It is thus this superstition has grown and been thoroughly entrenched in religious minds. Needless to say, one must indeed “overcome” this menagerie of deception, in order to have the new name of Christ properly understood or written upon the individual overcoming, in order to correctly understand in what name Messiah is manifested in his Second and Final Ministry.
Remember All Things Are of God
And Serve His Greater Purpose
However, we must keep in mind that although a negative and false, these superstitious and spurious, carnal views also are a part of God’s plan to have such things proliferated, all being part of the strong delusion of Ezekiel 14:1-11 and II Thessalonians 2 in some capacity and place. It is here we can practically see why Michael the Great Prince is misunderstood in the vast majority of today’s religious realms and thought to be a separate entity from Messiah altogether. The spurious, superstitious doctrine of angels carried to its modern extremes, totally obscures the fact that Messiah has his name written just as plain as can possibly be in Daniel 10 and 12. Hence, because it is not “Jesus,” as Mary was told to name him in his first coming, it is a NEW name written. It is understood clearly and only by him, but given to those who would be enlightened, thus “overcoming” the shortsightedness and lies of the false prophets down through the centuries that have come in Christ’s name of his first ministry, “Jesus Christ,” deceiving many, as stated in Matthew 24:4-5 and 23-27, as well as Luke 21:8. Overcoming the concept of self-destiny, which Adam imbibed and consequently all of mankind as well, Messiah became the first manifested Son, or as Revelation just stated it above, the one who “sat down with His Father in His Father’s throne.” We, as second born Sons by hearing Messiah’s voice and truth, also overcome self-destiny and sit down with Messiah in his throne, or are one with Messiah and our Father God. In this condition, the false apostles and lies are understood as just that . . . lies . . . and rejected. Not having come to this overcoming status, as is the fallen case in all of religion as we write this publication, the total profession has believed the lie and are rejected out of the Word of God or God’s mouth and in need of full salvation from its inception, having nothing left of truth in its purity as we enter this final stage of God’s dealings with mankind.
Sticking to the Word
WITHOUT Conjecture and Theory
On the contrary to the nearly 100 percent belief of the masses in such folklore of magical beings secretly watching and doing God’s bidding by command from some ethereal, literal place and beaming down in something that resembles science fiction, a thorough examination of ALL the scriptures with Strong’s Concordance in hand, without superimposing upon them the spurious views of those not having authority to interpret, will reveal that God appeared in a body singularly as one person or messenger, or bodies as a group of messengers, from time to time to deliver a message. This appearance, usually followed by a disappearance, is called a “Messenger of the Lord” translated for the most part “Angel of the Lord.” Another term used in modern vernacular, although not stated as such in the Bible, is a “theophany.” To superimpose more than ONLY THAT, upon these appearances in the Bible is unauthorized, spurious conjecture and promotion of fantasy and not fact. More times than these special appearances of God in this manner, the Word of the Lord came to the Prophets who were also “messengers.” The forerunner to the Messiah and the Messiah directly are messengers in Malachi 3:1 and translated exactly that same way, “messenger.”
3 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts.
We know that both of these “men” were John the Baptist and Jesus Christ respectively. The word in Hebrew is given in Strong’s Concordance as 4397 and can be translated “angel” or “messenger.” It is the exact word, “messenger,” Strong’s 4397 in Malachi 3:1 translated as “angel” elsewhere. It is translated angel in
15 And he blessed Joseph, and said, God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God which fed me all my life long unto this day,
16 The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.
Here “angel” and God are seen as the same in context bringing redemption. Now following on, once translating the word “arch” as “chief,” its meaning in the original Greek, and then “angel” as we have already considered as “messenger,” we understand that Messiah in Malachi 3:1 is called the “Messenger of the Covenant” and Jude 9 calls the Lord, “Michael, the Chief Messenger or Archangel.” We know the angel or messenger that brings redemption is Messiah, the Messenger of the Covenant, Michael the Great Prince, Michael the Chief Messenger, Michael the Archangel, the Lord himself – Jesus Christ. From here Jude 9 does not stand alone in interpretation, but finds an abundance of support from the rest of the Bible.
Understanding “the Lord Rebuke Thee (Satan)”
Comparing still further with the First Ministry of Messiah in Matthew 4:1-11, Mark 1:12-13, and Luke 4:1-13, we see it was Jesus Christ in dispute with Satan in the wilderness temptation where he used the Word of the Lord, the Word being God according to John 1:1, to be victorious and begin his public ministry immediately thereafter. Additionally, we know according to John 8:36-47, those that contended with Christ about the Law of Moses were labeled by Jesus:
…ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do…
Numerous occasions are found all through the testimonies of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John of such encounters which clearly, along with Zechariah 3:1-2 just quoted above, are exactly that of which Jude is speaking in Jude 9.
A False Premise Not Based upon the Law and the Prophets
Can be Deductively Supported from that Point Forward,
Using the New Testament for Private Interpretation.
Again, making the Word of God of no effect through privately interpreted fantasy, nowhere found in the Old Testament, New Testament false prophets have an interpretation of Jude 9 that says this was an argument between ethereal-spirit-beings disputing where to bury Moses’ literal body. This farce from unenlightened minds comes from not knowing the truth about Michael the Chief Messenger from the beginning and then combining that with a form of deductive reasoning around the fact that Deuteronomy 34 says God buried Moses in an unknown place. From there they really run amuck with a totally, unsupported theory that Satan and Michael, had an argument about where Moses was to be buried, supposing to make a shrine out of it, and therefore a form of idolatry. So, God supposedly, in this concocted scenario, intervened and shut the whole thing down to avoid that possibility, burying Moses in an unknown place. From here those of this mindset try and support that concept by using Peter’s idea to build tabernacles to Moses, Elijah and Christ in the Mount of Transfiguration experience of Matthew 17, Mark 9 and Luke 9, that was condemned by God making it clear to revere only Christ.
If They Get It Right in Paul’s Statement
Why Not with Jude’s???
It is interesting that they read Paul’s statement in II Corinthians 3:15, and correctly know that when he says, “when Moses is read,” it simply means when Moses’ written record, of the Torah or Law from Genesis through Deuteronomy inclusive, “is read.” It does not mean, as may be ridiculously interpreted, that Moses literal body has writing upon it that “is read.” Yet when it comes to the “body of Moses,” in an effort to support their ludicrous doctrine privately interpreted out of Jude 9, they miss altogether the obvious point that the “body” in dispute was the first five books of Moses or the “body of his work in writing,” exactly the way Paul is also referencing it in II Corinthians 3:15. Jude 9, other than the direct reference in Zechariah 3:1-2, is supported by many examples of Jesus rebukes to Satan, simply meaning that the application and interpretation of the “body of Moses” or the Law of Moses, was in constant dispute between Messiah, Michael the Archangel versus the interpretation placed upon it by the Pharisees and leadership of Israel represented as the mind of Satan accusing Messiah. This is clear in the record of Jesus’ public ministry, whereas there is no record of the fantasy view just stated above, which is pure conjecture. As we have pointed out in previous examples, this is but another one that reveals that the natural, carnal mind of man, though in a place of honor over others to teach them, understands not and makes foolishness out of the precious and spiritual truth properly interpreted from God’s Word. We trust the reader gets the point.
The Angels of God in Heaven
According to Ephesians 2, Apostle Paul and those in the First Resurrection were raised from being dead in trespasses and sins and to then sit with Christ in heavenly places. This is the simple meaning of the “angels in heaven.” Down through time Abraham, Moses and the Prophets as well as all who believed in God’s Sovereignty and awaited the final redemption for the world at large were those in the “place or seat of understanding” or “in heaven.” They carried the truth as God’s Messengers or Angels. This is what is understood by the “angels of God in heaven.” Simple enough, right??? That is . . . UNTIL such terms are caught up in the hoopla of religion as we have given above, and the foolishness they have made out of spiritual truth when interpreting by literalism, and further violation of not consulting the Old Testament to understand the New.
Angels of Satan or the Devil in Heaven
If one will check again with Strong’s Concordance as to Ephesians 6 in comparison with Ephesians 2, he will find the same word in Greek translated “heavenly places” in Ephesians 2 as “high places” in Ephesians 6 when referring to wickedness being in heaven as well, against which the believers, angels of God wrestled. This is the understanding of Revelation 12 and the war in heaven. Both parties claim to be correct and are therefore both in the “seat of understanding” or “in heaven” by “profession.” Within the profession of Christianity and even Judaism before it, they carried great official weight due to being in the position as authoritative; yet, they were false prophets and apostles, all carrying THEIR version of interpretation of the Law of Moses and later again THEIR version of the meaning of the letters of the true Apostles, thus wielding their false authority over the people. They are at war or odds with those that are true Prophets and Apostles in the contest between the “wheat and tares” of Matthew 13:36-40. God’s Angels or Messengers are operating from the stand point of God’s Sovereignty and the others, Satan’s Angels are functioning from the basis of self-determination, freewill, and choice. The end of this battle comes after the Second Ministry and Coming of Christ when God’s Sovereignty is triumphant removing Satan and his messengers from their “so called” and “self-professed” enlightened position. This is the scenario of Revelation 12 when the Dragon and his angels are cast out of heaven to the earth. There are no spooks forming armies hurling spears and fireballs at one another, which is another conjecture of immature children handling the Bible with unauthorized hands of literalism void of understanding.
Summary Concerning Angels
In summary, the Angels of God are special appearances of God himself miraculously as it would seem followed by a disappearance. They are additionally those that brought God’s Word called Prophets and later those of understanding called Apostles. It is all for the purpose of delivering the “message” or the “Word,” which is God as Spirit articulated into that message for our understanding according to John 1, of which the Messiah is the supreme manifestation of that Word and Message as the Chief Messenger or Archangel.
Angels of God – Angels of Satan
From this understanding, the rest of the Bible on this subject will open up to the reader in sincere search of answers that are logical and lead upward in maturity to Sons of God. God’s Messengers, Angels, or Sons are those down through time since Adam that adhere, as Abraham, to God’s Sovereignty. Satan’s Messengers, Angels or sons are those down through time since Adam that adhere to self-determination, freewill, and choice, having a form of religion that constantly condemns them and others, thus taking peace from the earth and bringing us to the destruction of this whole system upon which it is built. This is again by God’s design to bring us all, both classes, to the resurrection and full truth eventually, in the glorious end in view of God’s Great Plan now unfolding before us.
Again, Guessing at a Sealed Book
UNTIL the Time of the End
We know the Book of Daniel was sealed “unto the time of the end,” in Daniel 12:4, yet Revelation 22:10-11, says the prophecy of Revelation is NOT sealed “for the time is at hand.” In other words, the Book of Daniel and Revelation are unsealed at the end time by Messiah, Michael the Great Prince. In Revelation 22:10-11 the Book is left unsealed by John the Apostle because he WAS in the Day of the Lord and the “time of the end” of Daniel 12:4 via this vision and discourse with Christ, according to Revelation 1, the time of Christ’s physical presence on earth fulfilling the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week not fulfilled during Christ’s First Ministry. However, OUTSIDE of actually being in the Final Appearing or Day of the Lord, the Book remained Sealed. Thus, to us awaiting the Second Coming down through the centuries it is still sealed. The ONE who gives that Mindset or understanding that opens or removes those Seals is Michael the Great Prince, present again, who, via this publication to the reader, is giving him that Mindset and understanding of the Sealed Book, thus UNSEALING it via the understanding thereof. Here again we repeat, in giving that understanding he verifies he is Messiah, Michael of Daniel 10:21 and 12:1-7. In that he IS that one, he follows by GIVING us that understanding. The door swings both ways.
The Name of Messiah for the Final Redemption
Indeed, Michael of Daniel 10:21 and 12:1-7 is the name in the end time of the same Messiah, Jesus Christ that was present in 26-30 CE the First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week. It is clearly revealed with understanding in the opening of the Seventh Seal by the one with that name, when he is present again.
Breaking Down the Name, Its Parts and Meanings
In Hebrew, this translates as Mi-cha-El, “who-is like-God,” Ha-Tsar, “the-Prince,” Ha-Gadol, “the-Great.” Like many languages other than English, the adjectives come after rather than before the noun. This is true of French for example where “la voiture blanche,” means “the white car” but is actually spoken as it is written here, “the car white.” So, we have Mi cha el, Ha Tsar, Ha Gadol in Hebrew, literally in English “Michael - the Prince - the Great,” spoke in common English order “Michael, the Great Prince.” In Hebrew, this is also Michael Shane Sofer and in English is Michael Craig Clark. “Sofer” means “scribe.” A scribe is also a “priest” as seen in Ezra 7:11. The Scribe and Priest who records the written word from generation to generation as copies of the Torah, or First Five Books of Moses, is well understood in Judaism. In fact, it is upon a hand-written, perfect copy of Torah being delivered to the local gathering of Jews in any place, that they are then considered an official synagogue. Down through the centuries we have record keepers and administrators of businesses and estates stated in Old English to be a “clark.” “Clark” has in recent years evolved to the modern derivative “clerk.”
Michael the High Priest
It is within the terminology, “Michael the High Priest,” another rendering of Michael the Great Prince, that Isaiah 22:15-25 is fulfilled.
15 Thus saith the Lord God of hosts, Go, get thee unto this treasurer, even unto Shebna, which is over the house, and say,
16 What hast thou here? and whom hast thou here, that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulcher here, as he that hews him out a sepulcher on high, and that graves an habitation for himself in a rock?
17 Behold, the Lord will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee.
18 He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a ball into a large country: there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house.
19 And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down.
20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah:
21 And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah.
22 And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.
23 And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a glorious throne to his father's house.
24 And they shall hang upon him all the glory of his father's house, the offspring and the issue, all vessels of small quantity, from the vessels of cups, even to all the vessels of flagons.
25 In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, shall the nail that is fastened in the sure place be removed, and be cut down, and fall; and the burden that was upon it shall be cut off: for the Lord hath spoken it.
We understand that the former manner which the leadership of Israel has ruled the world represented in Shebna, the scribe, the treasurer, will be removed. As we have shown in Daniel 11, and will show further in our presentation of 5th and 6th Trumpet / Plague at the end of this publication, the treasurer aspect is in modern day Zionism and its Machiavellian control of the stock market, gold, and certainly oil. It is in the son of Hilkiah the High Priest, Eliakim that proper rule will be established replacing that method of rule and operation. This is the same thing as the willful king of Daniel 11:45 coming to his end and Michael standing up in Daniel 12:1. Once again, we have Messianic prophecy that appears to say this is true of the parties actually mentioned or stated within that prophecy, but it is clearly pointing to the end time fulfillment of all prophecy in Messiah, the Great High Priest. This also the fulfillment of the Priesthood of the highest order that appeared to Abraham, Melchisedec, that introduces us to that which is eternal, not temporary, but forever, in the message he brings which is THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, that puts us in direct relationship to God as Father, as a manifested Son, according to Genesis 14:18-20, Psalms 110, and Hebrews 7.
Half Hour of Silence in Heaven
Any timing is marked by a clear place to start that time and a clear place to end it. We have seen from Revelation 2:17, 3:12, 3:21, and Revelation 19:11-13, the new name was understood only by Messiah, although once revealed from the Bible by him, we can enter with understanding as well. Therefore, ALL that he is given as to understanding by God that sits upon the throne in Revelation 4, also written in the Sealed Book of Revelation 5, we can understand also, through Messiah, the Lion and the Lamb that takes the Book, being found worthy to open it unto us bringing Full Redemption.
When Was that Sealed Book
FULLY Opened to the Messiah???
Following the Path to Blessing
The Importance of Daniel 9:24.
Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Holy.
Messiah Does Not Know
Until God Gives Him Understanding
The Key of David
And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.
And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that opens, and no man shuts; and shuts, and no man opens;
At the time of the prophecy in Isaiah 22:22, Messiah and his First Ministry were yet to come or future. In Revelation 3:7 we see it is true as past tense during John’s vision in the Book of Revelation, of Jesus Christ in the Day of the Lord or the time and events of the Second Coming bringing FULL Redemption. By the way of the key of David, Messiah is revealed knowledge and understanding, that “opens” sealed truth which remains from that point as established eternal truth, however still within Messiah, yet to be given to others. It always was truth, but is “opened” or revealed by Messiah to others at a certain juncture and place in God’s Plan. The knowledge and understanding he has also is to “shut” that which can never be opened again. In other words, perfect truth expels permanently - previous lies. Doctrines exposed for their shortsighted views or outright falsehoods are never opened or taught again, just the same way we would no longer teach our children that the world is flat, as was indeed taught centuries before Christopher Columbus and his voyages. We notice in the prophecy, in Isaiah 22:22, it says God WILL lay on his shoulder the key of David, yet, Revelation 3:7, remembering this is said to John being in the Day of the Lord at the end time and being shown those mysteries, shows Messiah WITH the key in possession.
Messiah Did NOT Know How Long?!?!
As we have stressed from Luke 21 and Christ’s answers to his disciples, he knew “what” but not “when” of the Second Coming. The important point here is that Messiah is given knowledge at the appointed time, giving him those answers and end to the mysteries only partially given to him in his First Ministry, leaving the Apostles and true believers under their instruction, uninformed in certain things until the time of the end when he would be here again and have the complete package or the Seven Seals removed releasing the understanding withheld behind them. THE QUESTION: WHEN WOULD HE HAVE THAT “KEY OF DAVID” REVEAL THE FULL SEVEN SEALED MYSTERY???
What Did Messiah and Those
Of the First Resurrection Have and NOT Have
From 30 CE Onward???
They Had the Truth behind the First Four Seals,
Broad Knowledge, But NOT Specific, of the Sixth and Seventh Seal as to the “How” And Who”
Of the Finished Plan of Redemption.
They, Like Messiah, Did Not Know
The “When” of the Fifth Seal
They knew God as controlling ALL things, meticulously by the counsel of His preordained and predetermined Will, the truth behind the First Seal. They were quite clear that God was as much in control of a believer as an unbeliever, thus in ALL men working His Will, so they approached and treated everyone according to this knowledge, the truth behind the Second Seal. They were clear by this standard as to those ordained to be false prophets, the truth behind the Third Seal. Finally, they understood by the truth and right message and measure given by the Messiah, the false prophets’ false message, exposed behind the Fourth Seal. In summary, they COMPLETELY had the truth behind the First Four Seals. They knew much about the way the Second Coming would occur as to the removal of Israel’s government and confidence just before that time, the truth behind the Sixth Seal in the broad view, however short of the meticulous details, symbolized to John by Messiah concerning the end time. They understood that Michael was Messiah, the general truth behind the Seventh Seal, but NOT HOW or WHEN he would know the rest of what was needed for the final sequence of events and the FULL Redemption extended to all mankind thereby, thus they had no FULL insight into the half hour of silence which IS the Seventh Seal. As far as TOTAL revelation they understood only the truth behind the First Four Seals, the true nature of God in the First Two, and the true nature of that which stood opposed in the Third and Fourth.
Whatever Messiah Had to Give They Received.
It Is Called the “Seal of God” or the “Holy Spirit.”
It Is a Clear Understanding as a Foundation of ALL Truth
Thus, Leading One on that Foundation INTO All Truth.
This is what sealed in the company symbolized as the 144,000 in the First Resurrection of Revelation 7 that we just considered in Section X. As we have made abundantly clear, it was FIRST given to Peter as the Keys to the Kingdom. He then, in the upper room, for the next ten days after Christ’s ascension, related all that Christ had revealed unto him in his previous, private meeting with Messiah in John 21. The 12 Apostles received the anointing as well as the 120 on the Day of Pentecost, from where those of Israel received the same in Acts 2 and 3 as a record of some of the first believers outside of the upper room.
What Was Withheld???
The Fifth Seal was not opened unto the Messiah nor the Apostles and the rest. Also, many details, due to that timing being unknown could not be related as well, as to the fine points behind the Sixth Seal.
The Full Revelation Is Revealed in
“the space of about Half an Hour,”
Under the New Name Ordained for Full Redemption
Michael, the Great Prince, Michael Shane Sofer,
Michael Craig Clark
Knowing his name for redemption, he, in the eye-witness of the author, as given in Section X fulfilled to the leadership of national Israel the Last and Remaining Half of the Covenant Confirmation 70th Week in spring 1984 – fall 1987. As we see in the quote of Daniel 9:24 above, THIS is the requirement, the confirmation by Messiah of the FULL week, not just half of it. Upon that being finished, the blessing would be given with all that was kept in store awaiting that final, fall fulfillment in 1987. We see further that the Messiah is blest or considered the blessed one that comes to the 1335th day. So arriving, he and the author left on that day, as we stated, unbeknown to us that we had been in the Holy Land for the 1290th and fulfilled the 1335th day of Daniel 12:11-12. FROM THAT TIME OR ON DECEMBER 4, BEGAN THE HALF HOUR OF SILENCE IN HEAVEN.
The Mystery Hidden, Once Revealed to Messiah, Is
The Blessing that Shortened the 2300 days to 1335 days.
Now picking back up with our presentation in the last Section X concerning Christ’s answer to his disciples that:
And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
We see it is here that the rest of what God’s Plan entailed intervenes. At the 1335 days, when the Messiah left, seeing no repentance or understanding in the Holy Land, and Israel in particular, the 2300-day count of Daniel 8:13-14, was shortened with the “silence in heaven for about the space of half an hour.” We will later show that this is a 20-year period, the first day being December 4, 1987 through the last day of December 3, 2007 inclusive. All understanding that was accomplished in part in Messiah’s First Ministry was completed at this time to bring final blessing to the world. The Covenant qualified under the Law of Moses was finished in confirmation earlier with the end of Daniel’s 70th Week on September 18, 1987 and the ensuing fall Holy days of Leviticus 23:23-44. It awaits the completion of the judgment of Daniel 7:24-27 and other scriptures based upon those statements of Daniel 7, in order to bring that blessing publicly finalized for world manifestation in the Anointing of the Most Holy by Israel in a change of government under Messiah according to Ezekiel 21:25-27. This will be the final step that releases what Messiah has already, which is prepared in THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, with details that have led through history to that message in this publication BABYLON HAS FALLEN.
The Time of Revelation to Messiah
Following that confirmation of the fall of 1987 which ended and fulfilled Daniel’s 70th Week in the Last Half called in Daniel 7:24-27, “time times and the dividing of time,” 75 days later at the 1335th day, in the author’s witness and presence, ensued the 20-year period from December 3, 1987, December 4, 1987 being the first full day, ending on December 3, 2007 inclusive, December 4, 2007 being the first day outside of 20 years. It was within this period of time that all mysteries to bring blessing and full redemption were revealed and finalized in Messiah. Therefore, from that time of the finish of the 20 years we have the blessing available in Messiah, December 4, 2007. As we will show, running parallel according to Daniel 7:24-27, after the “time times and the dividing of time,” which is 1260 days, and in particular after the 1335th day, December 3, 1987, began the “judgment shall sit,” which continued for the full 20 years and even intensified from December 4, 2007 forward, upon the Zionists, while the blessing remained and was completed in Messiah. This has brought us to the current hour, bringing Israel and the world to the last event of the Second Coming in public, where every eye shall see him, in the Seventh Trumpet, also called the “Last Trump” in I Corinthians 15:52, the “Trump of God” in I Thessalonians 4:13-5:11, and the “Great Trumpet” in Isaiah 27:13 to which Paul is referring in Corinthians and Thessalonians, according to Acts 26:22, which reveals all the mysteries of the Prophets according to Revelation 10:7 and Daniel 12:7.
How Do We Arrive at Twenty Years
Interpreted from the Law and the Prophets,
In Coordination with Revelation 8:1,
“About the space of half an hour”???
Remember it says: “ABOUT the space of half an hour.” In other words, it is not EXACTLY half an hour. Let us return to the Law and Prophets for understanding in coordination with the Apostle to the Jews, Peter on this subject. In the Prophet Jeremiah’s record, the final days of tribulation upon Israel are called the “time of Jacob’s trouble,” in:
3 For, lo, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the Lord: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.
4 And these are the words that the Lord spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah.
5 For thus saith the Lord; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace.
6 Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness?
7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the TIME OF JACOB'S TROUBLE, but he shall be saved out of it.
8 For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him:
9 But they shall serve the Lord their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them.
10 Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the Lord; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid.
11 For I am with thee, saith the Lord, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet I will not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.
It is very important to see the setting for this “time of Jacob’s trouble,” as being the surrounding atmosphere of the Coming of David the King or Messiah and the establishment of world peace beginning with Israel. This is the process starting with the removal of the false kingdom of evil as stated in Daniel 7:24-27 and pouring out of judgment in Daniel 9:24-27 upon the desolater of the Promise of Abraham that has kept the blessing from coming to the Israel of God and all nations as stated in:
1 Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curses thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
The question bears answering:
Why call this the “TIME of Jacob’s trouble”? Why not just call it “Jacob’s trouble”? Again, another question is: What is Jacob’s trouble initially as to Jacob’s personal history? We know his name was changed to “Israel” later and, for the most part, that is the name of his collective descendants nationally in scripture with few exceptions that still use “Jacob,” but rarely.
Twenty Years Is the TIME of Jacob’s Trouble
Genesis 31:36-42 a summary description
36 And Jacob was wroth, and chode with Laban: and Jacob answered and said to Laban, What is my trespass? what is my sin, that thou hast so hotly pursued after me?
37 Whereas thou hast searched all my stuff, what hast thou found of all thy household stuff? set it here before my brethren and thy brethren, that they may judge betwixt us both.
38 This twenty years have I been with thee; thy ewes and thy she goats have not cast their young, and the rams of thy flock have I not eaten.
39 That which was torn of beasts I brought not unto thee; I bare the loss of it; of my hand didst thou require it, whether stolen by day, or stolen by night.
40 Thus I was; in the day the drought consumed me, and the frost by night; and my sleep departed from mine eyes.
41 Thus have I been twenty years in thy house; I served thee fourteen years for thy two daughters, and six years for thy cattle: and thou hast changed my wages ten times.
42 Except the God of my father, the God of Abraham, and the fear of Isaac, had been with me, surely thou hadst sent me away now empty. God hath seen mine affliction and the labor of my hands, and rebuked thee yesternight.
Jacob’s Trouble Initiates
“The Judgment Shall Sit,”
The Last End of the Indignation
On the 1335th day, the Blessed One departed the Holy Land. We understand as well that this was 75 days after the finish of the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week which confirmed the Covenant upon which the Blessing of Daniel 9:24 was contingent. Therefore, we have two simultaneous events, one private with Messiah outside of the Holy Land, and one public with Israel within the Zionist State still in its league with Revived Rome / UN that stood against Messiah and rejected him again as we have shown.
Both Settings Running Parallel
In the private events with Messiah, we have that which was bringing the finish and completion of the withheld elements into understanding that were left vague or short in the First Ministry of Messiah from 26-30 CE, and in particular the understanding of the truth behind the Fifth Seal - the timing or the when, and the details behind the Sixth Seal – the how. As we will show soon, this introduces the proper placing and understanding of the 7 Trumpets and 7 Plagues accordingly.
In the public arena with the Zionist State, we have the Sounding of the Fifth Trumpet and pouring out of the Fifth Plague which we will reveal, along with those public events that mark that out, in due time, that began just after the 1335th day, December 3, 1987 when Michael and the author left the Holy Land. Of course, this will FIRST bring a placing of the First Four Trumpets and Plagues as well, before we consider the Fifth in detail.
First Let Us Consider
The Private Side with Messiah
A Day with the Lord as to Time Reference with Us,
Understanding “the space of about half an hour.”
For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
II Peter 3:8
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
So, we see 1000 years of 365 and ¼ days of 24 hours each is to the Lord as a day and vice versa. Therefore, about one half hour with the Lord is 20 years when we combine that with Jeremiah 30:1-11, the “TIME of Jacob’s Trouble” and Genesis 31:36-42 record of that time of Jacob’s literal trouble and trial, as we quoted in length above. Arithmetically that translates as follows:
There are 24 hours in a day or 48 half hours in a day. Therefore 1000 years divided by 48 half hours equals 20.8 years for each half hour or ‘about’ 20 years of time with mankind, even as there is about half an hour with God using the 1000 year / 1 day or 24 hours or 48 half hours ratio. 1000 years / 48 half hours = 20.8 years
Now using that reasoning privately, or standing alone, is interesting. Without it at all, we still conclude the “TIME of Jacob’s trouble” was exactly twenty years. With the time in the Seventh Seal being “ABOUT the space of half an hour,” we then join that reasoning, no longer standing alone, together with Jeremiah 30:1-11 and Genesis 31:36-42. Therefore, we have a twenty-year period with mankind being about the space of half an hour of silence in heaven, or with God, running from December 4, 1987 to and including all of December 3, 2007 for these 20 years, with December 4, 2007 being the first day outside of this time-period.
The Significance of “Silence”
The simple truth here is that heaven, or the seat of understanding from God, was SILENT concerning the truth behind the Fifth Seal, the meticulous details of the Sixth, and other aspects in practical results on the ground as to Michael the Great Prince and the Second Coming in that name. Additionally, the placing of the 7 Trumpets and 7 Plagues could not be precise or completely understood until this revelation was completed to Messiah. Those withheld facets of truth, about which there had been silence or no understanding, ARE revealed and made audible for hearing and seeing spiritually to Messiah within that space of about half an hour in heaven which is 20 years on earth.
Fall of 2007 Finished the Final Revelation to Messiah
As the Blessing Given to the Blessed One According to
Haggai 2:11-23, and on December 4, 2007 We Have
“From This Day Will I Bless You (Israel)”
That Blessing Being FULLY in Messiah.
Another Threefold Cord
In summary so far, first we have the arithmetic figuring for the 20 years from December 3, 1987, December 4, 1987 being the first day of those 20 years which ended on December 3, 2007, December 4, 2007 being the first day outside of those 20 years. Second, we have the fact in the Law and Prophets that Jacob’s literal trouble, upon which the Prophecy of Jeremiah 30 is based, is 20 years as seen in Genesis 31. Now is there a third witness to establish a threefold cord? The answer is yes, and again, totally occurring in a manner that human intervention to try and affect it and make it so, would be impossible. All that can be done is to discover this AFTER the fact. Here it is from the Law and the Prophets:
11 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Ask now the priests concerning the law, saying,
12 If one bear holy flesh in the skirt of his garment, and with his skirt do touch bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any meat, shall it be holy? And the priests answered and said, No.
13 Then said Haggai, If one that is unclean by a dead body touch any of these, shall it be unclean? And the priests answered and said, It shall be unclean.
14 Then answered Haggai, and said, So is this people, and so is this nation before me, saith the Lord; and so is every work of their hands; and that which they offer there is unclean.
15 And now, I pray you, consider from this day and upward, from before a stone was laid upon a stone in the temple of the Lord:
16 Since those days were, when one came to an heap of twenty measures, there were but ten: when one came to the pressfat for to draw out fifty vessels out of the press, there were but twenty.
17 I smote you with blasting and with mildew and with hail in all the labor of your hands; yet ye turned not to me, saith the Lord.
18 Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the Lord's temple was laid, consider it.
19 Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you.
20 And again the word of the Lord came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying,
21 Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth;
22 And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother.
23 In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the Lord, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the Lord of hosts.
Again, here is a portion of scripture that upon the surface appears to be fulfilled right at the time it is given with Zerubbabel being the Messiah. However, the key point to keep in mind is the short phrase in the last verse: “In that day . . .” This is Prophecy applying to the end time and the final appearance and blessing under Messiah, Michael the Great Prince of Daniel 12:1-7.
When analyzing Haggai 2:11-23 in comparison between the Hebrew Bible Calendar and the Julian/Gregorian Calendar with which we are most familiar. December 4, 1987 to December 3, 2007 inclusive is exactly, twenty years of 24-hour days. In Haggai 2:11-23, the day of blessing, initiating perpetual blessing forward, is Kislev, the ninth month on the Hebrew calendar, and the 24th day. In looking at the Perpetual Calendar that compares the tracking of the Hebrew Calendar along with the Julian/Gregorian Calendar, we can see December 4, 2007, the first day outside of the 20 years, is Kislev 24 for that year. Here again we have a threefold cord of witness:
1. the 1000 years/48 half-hours being about a half hour with God or 20 years,
2. Jeremiah 30 and Genesis 31 specifying the TIME of Jacob’s Trouble as 20 years, FROM the end of December 3, 1987 the 1335th day of Daniel 12:12, the day Michael and the author left Holy Land, to the end of the day December 3, 2007,
3. Finally, the first day outside of that 20 years is prophesied to be Kislev 24 or the 9th month and the 24th day on the Hebrew Calendar for the year 2007, which IS December 4, 2007 on the Julian / Gregorian, or our current secular, calendar.
Beyond Human Manipulation or Fabrication
Rather, It Is Just an Observed Fact
Again, we can see there is nothing anyone could manipulate or fabricate to try and fulfill anything. Kislev 24, the 9th month and the 24th day, December 4, 2007 IS exactly the first day outside of the 20 years, which IS from December 4, 1987 to December 3, 2007 inclusive, which IS after December 3, 1987, which IS the 1335th day or 75 days from the 1260th day of September 18, 1987, which IS 42 months or 3 and ½ years from March 18, 1984, which IS 2520 years (7x360) from March 18, 537 BCE, the beginning of the 7 Times of the Gentiles.
All the Way to the Call of Abraham
As Detailed in the Following Links
At the End of This Written Summary
Moving back from Spring 537 BCE we come 70 years earlier to the Babylonian Captivity beginning in 607 BCE under the conquests of Nebuchadnezzar. Within the 70 years in the year 586 BCE, we have the First Overturning of Ezekiel 21:25-27, the destruction of Jerusalem and the first Temple. Using two methods we can come to the laying of the foundation of the Temple by Solomon in 1016 BCE. The understanding of the Prophecy of Ezekiel 4:4-6 reveals that the iniquity of Israel and Judah is born by God for 430 years with the Temple and its rituals, and particularly once a year on the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur, of Leviticus 16. Those years are 430 years from the destruction of 586 BCE back to the beginning of the building of the Temple recorded in I Kings 6:1 and II Chronicles 3:1-2 in the spring of 1016 BCE. As a second record and witness to 430 years, they can be tallied by the sequential adding of the years of the reigns of strictly the Kings of Judah from Solomon to Zedekiah using the precedent of Genesis 49:10 which does not allow for the Kings of Israel after the division of Jeroboam from Rehoboam in I Kings 12. This year 1016 BCE is stated to be the 480th year since the Exodus which by count backwards is spring of 1495 BCE. When going another 430 years backwards according to Galatians 3:16-17, Exodus 12:40-41 and Genesis 12:1-10, where Abraham is considered the beginning of Israel’s tenure in Egypt as we made clear in Section II, we come to spring of 1925 BCE. The Law being given in the first year in the wilderness, the year of the Exodus, 1495 BCE with 1496 BCE being the 430th year since the Call of Abraham, brings us to the spring of 1925 BCE for the Call of Abraham. The following two links show first of all, both methods of counting from 586 BCE back to 1016 BCE which is the year of the laying of the foundation of the Temple. The second link shows the times from the Exodus back to the Call of Abraham. The third link shows the times from the Call of Abraham to Adam and Eve.
Meanwhile Back in the Holy Land,
As of December 3, 1987, “the Judgment Shall Sit”
Daniel 7:24-27, Daniel 11:44-45, Revelation 9
Like we stated before, Michael’s final words of note associated with our exit from the Holy Land were:
There will be no blessing, until this abomination is removed.
Therefore, just after Michael and the author left the Holy Land on the 1335th day of Daniel 12:12, December 3, 1987, and entered the 20 years of blessing unto Michael giving him what was not given in his First Ministry, the world was drawn to the Arab uprising which exploded in the news from the Zionist State and the Occupied Territories of the West Bank and Gaza. We remember that these territories according to Daniel 7:24-27 and Daniel 11:40-45 were, prior to 1967, parts of Syria, Jordan and Egypt, three kings or countries subdued to make room for the intruder, the Little Horn. This was the Zionist State already there since 1948, but then via military action in 1967, moving into Judea and Samaria, and in particular the area of Old Jerusalem and the Holy Mount. This is the area they call the “Temple Mount.” All of these together are the smaller “glorious land” in the greater Holy Land of Abraham, between the rivers of Euphrates and the Nile. From November 29, 1947 and their declaration of the Zionist State in May of 1948, they had moved on successfully, as we pointed out from Ezekiel 14:1-11, heralded by the Christian world in many quarters as being the Promised Return of the Israel of God in positive fulfillment of many Bible prophecies. They prospered in their takeover, without much trouble from the Arab inhabitants or from the world at large, concerning the Zionist victories in 1948 and again in 1967.
The Deception Begins to Fall Apart
In the Arab Intifada Uprising
This Is the Beginning of the “Judgment Shall Sit”
The Fifth Trumpet and Plague of Revelation 9 and 16
Well . . . What About
The First Four Trumpets and Plagues???
As the First and Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week affect the First and Last Half of Messiah’s Ministry, and what WAS and WAS NOT fulfilled in the First Ministry, and revelation of the Seven Seals, so also it affects the Seven Trumpets and Seven Plagues. Basically, as far as TOTAL revelation, keying on the word “TOTAL,” the First Four Seals are all that was complete in the First Ministry’s giving of the Holy Spirit as we have stated earlier. So, we here state and will summarize the First Four Trumpets and Plagues quickly, equally associated with the First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week and Messiah’s First Ministry, so that we can move to the event we just introduced above in the Fifth Trumpet and Plague.
First Four Seals – Trumpets – Plagues
The First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week
First Ministry of Messiah
Last Three Seals – Trumpets – Plagues
The Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week
Second Ministry of Messiah
As one can certainly conclude, we are very clear that the First Four Seals, Trumpets and Plagues are associated with the time of Messiah fulfilling one Half or the First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week. The opening of the First Four Seals was effectuated on the Day of Pentecost for the 120 in the upper room of Acts 1-2. The First Four Trumpets and Plagues are associated with the judgment in the Second Overturning of 70 CE which was the result of the rejection of that First Messiah Ministry to national Israel after the 40-year ministry of the Apostles.
A Trumpet to the Believer Is a Plague to the Unbeliever
Removing Freewill and Self-Destiny in the Light
Of Sovereignty and TOTAL Control of God.
Profession versus Possession
We will be short here, in that this should be clear by now to the reader. The believer is NOT one in profession that in anyway still holds to self-determination and freewill, deciding one’s own destiny. That is an unbeliever; no matter if they can quote the whole Bible and are the greatest humanitarians in the world. They are dead to the proper foundation of truth and have none of the Seals opened unto them. Herein marks those that serve God and those that serve Him not. Yes . . . all serve God, as to fulfilling His Will and Purpose, but that is understood only by the believer. Those that serve God NOT, means those that are under a child’s view, dead, and unenlightened as to the foundation of the First Four Seals opened. God still has them only potentially able to believe, which belief is awakened in them by His Ordained Plan in His Ordained Time, and can only come by the Voice of the Lord sounding to them making them aware of the Puppet Master aspect of God’s TOTAL control. This is the meaning of John 5:24-25. Short of that, they are still dead and unenlightened, even if they find interest in this publication. They are still off the foundation, dead, in darkness, and will only come to a point of hearing some new thing for their amusement in these pages. The believers and unbelievers see the same truth, but from different perspectives. One believes it as Resurrection Truth. The other refuses it as False Doctrine, or our “wrap on the Bible” and other such terminology that confirms the Message WAS NOT received.
The Trumpet and the Plague, Is a Fact
Perceived as a Positive or a Negative Respectively
As an example of this bold face title just rendered, let us consider Joshua and Israel’s conquest of Jericho. This is the FIRST introduction to Seven Trumpets as stated in the Law and the Prophets from the Book of Joshua, in Joshua 6. There the final or Seventh Trumpet revealed the complete purpose of the other Six. There was no understanding until that Seventh one sounded. What occurred was a Trumpet of victory for the Israelites. Although there is no mention of the word “plague” in Joshua, we will use it here for the purpose of making our point for the Book of Revelation. The Trumpet of victory for Israel was received as a Plague of destruction for the people of Jericho with the exception of Rahab and those with her. She received deliverance from the Seventh Plague destroying Jericho and was caught up in the positive side of that same event of the Seventh Trumpet. She is a type of the Gentiles that were called out of heathenism to see the truth in Messiah and are joined with Israel as the company coming out of Great Tribulation when that Seventh Trumpet sounds in the spiritual sense here in the end time. She was marked out with a scarlet cord hanging in the window so that she would not be killed with the rest of the inhabitants of Jericho, indicative of those under blood atonement in the end time awaiting the Seventh Trumpet. Those of Jericho had no understanding until it was too late and the Seventh Trumpet of a positive nature to Israel and Rahab was the Seventh Plague of a negative nature to Jericho.
As It Was Then, So It Is at the End Time
All Is Understood Only in the 7th Trumpet
The first Six Trumpets and Plagues of Revelation 8-9 and 16 are unrevealed and unknown as to their significance until the sounding of and the pouring out of the Seventh Trumpet and Plague respectively. This is stated plainly in
And the temple (This is the temple in heaven as is clear by other verses considered in Revelation) was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple (Entering the temple is to enter into the seat of understanding as to all God is doing or has done according to the Seven Seals, Seven Trumpets and Seven Plagues), till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.
Part of that Sounding and Out Pouring is this publication making known the truth. The fullness arrives in THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL as the cornerstone of foundation and capstone that finishes it as well. This is understood in reading this publication after the presentation of THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, and then reading THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL again once one has finished this publication. This is the effect to each individual. The events that accompany that revelation and understanding whereby every man will be delivered eventually are seen in Jerusalem and the Holy Land as the removal of the Zionist State in the coming, public manifestation, appearing and recognition of proper government in Messiah, again according to Ezekiel 21:25-27 and Daniel 12:1-7 as well as a multitude of other scriptures.
Anointing the Most Holy in Public Coronation
The Event Magnifying and Releasing Understanding
The 7th Trumpet and 7th Plague in Public Manifestation
As there has been the private revelation from God to Messiah, giving him the fullness of all that was partial in the First Ministry, so there will be also the public anointing when Israel answers to his authority. This is the scenario with David when he was anointed as King over all of Israel in II Samuel 5:1-3, which is the standard for Messiah as to rule in the Final End Time as well, as stated in Ezekiel 37:15-28.
II Samuel 5:1-3
1 Then came all the tribes of Israel to David unto Hebron, and spake, saying, Behold, we are thy bone and thy flesh.
2 Also in time past, when Saul was king over us, thou wast he that led out and brought in Israel: and the Lord said to thee, Thou shalt feed my people Israel, and thou shalt be a captain over Israel.
3 So all the elders of Israel came to the king to Hebron; and king David made a league with them in Hebron before the Lord: and they anointed David king over Israel.
15 The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying,
16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and for all the house of Israel his companions:
17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.
18 And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these?
19 Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.
20 And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.
21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.
23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.
25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince forever.
26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
28 And the heathen shall know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.
Although, all knowledge, understanding, and wisdom required in Messiah is in him whereby THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL is preached and broadcast, as well as this publication in great detail, it must be crowned by an event verifying its authentic nature finalizing all that God has done up to this point. The event that publicly fulfills Daniel 9:24 COMPLETELY as to “anoint the Most Holy,” is when Israel accepts God’s Sovereignty over them again, thus cleansing the sanctuary of their strength as the Israel of God. This will be their national redemption that they missed in rejecting Messiah publicly April 3, 30 CE, Preparation Day, Nisan 14. It is accepting Michael the Great Prince in formal recognition that completes the package of Daniel 9:24 in all aspects, both as to Messiah receiving all that God has to give to humanity, and as to Messiah’s public acceptance by those ordained to give that recognition according to the blessing of the Patriarch Jacob to Judah in Genesis 49:10, inaugurating the Day of God in completion leading us all to the blessing of God as All and in all. The Law of Moses being fulfilled already by Messiah this will bring Israel not back to a literal temple, sacrifices, the keeping of days, months, and years, etc. which were all under the Law. It will rather bring them and all mankind to the faith of Abraham, the Sovereignty of God in the two great commandments on the first set of stones at Mt. Sinai; hence this is the redemption of Israel and the world
Already Answered BUT Not Understood Until . . .
Within that which transpires, authority or public credence, in the eyes of the world and the people desiring answers, will be given to this website and it publications. Although this publication and THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL are indeed available, they will not be poured out or sounded clearly and distinctly with recognition until Israel accepts her Messiah and installs proper government over the Holy Land and Jerusalem and the Holy Mount in particular. There will be no firm and committed desire for answers until this event puts all mankind into great tribulation and then that consequent search for understanding. It is thus we say this IS the 7th Trumpet / Plague via giving understanding to all that is unintelligible prior to its final sounding and pouring out according to Revelation 15:8 given above. These publications as the Words of Life from Messiah, Michael the Great Prince, combined with his formal standing up in defense of Israel and the Covenant and blessing of Abraham, Ishmael and Isaac, and specifically concerning the Holy / Temple Mount and its demise planned by Revived Rome of the United Nations, will bring great tribulation such as never was with the surprise coming – Messiah here at last! The Day of the Lord has come according to all the Prophets to bring judgment and consequent blessing beginning at Jerusalem and extending to the remotest part of the world. Yet, here is that understanding, prior to that time in this website, not considered seriously at this time of its writing. Why? Again, redundantly, we say that no one can enter the understanding until the formal events within the FULL sounding and pouring out of the 7th Trumpet / Plague bring that attention and concern to be enlightened upon mankind, thus removing all that has gone before with a greater understanding.
As is quite logical and practical, the author of these pages is the only exception, with Bible training and understanding, to enter with Messiah prior to the full exposure. Otherwise, left on his own, the author as well could not enter into these truths until the time. In being called to serve with Messiah, even as Eliezer was the servant to Abraham to secure the bride, Rebekah, for Isaac, as recorded in Genesis 24, the author of this publication and webmaster of this website has been granted insight and privilege to so serve, and therefore has clear understanding ONLY upon being in this assistance position. This is also necessary under the stipulation of the Bible precedent that in the mouth of two or three witnesses - Messiah, his physical wife of over 40 years, and the author – the matter is established according to Deuteronomy 19:15 and II Corinthians 13:1.
A Davidic Parallel
Another point we make at this place in our presentation is to accent the similarity with David in what has been conveyed above. With David, there were the private dealings of God with him, whereby the “Spirit of the Lord came upon him” in a private anointing given by the Prophet Samuel, before he came to prominence and the anointing as formal King by all Israel. This is seen in the two scripture portions just given. It is the same with Michael the Great Prince as God has prepared him to rule by first giving him all that the Law and the Prophets can endow, even as Samuel anointed David. Afterward, we will see all Israel come and anoint him King, the King of God’s designation according to Deuteronomy 17:14-20.
It is interesting to note as well that neither David nor Solomon could be a complete fulfillment of Deuteronomy 17 in their literal lifetimes because they definitely had multiple wives and many horses, connoting wealth and large armies. Michael the Great Prince is the husband of one wife in a successful and very close marriage and relationship, of which the author is witness. He lives a very conservative life, with little monetary means fulfilling all requirements specified in Deuteronomy 17, being great David’s greater Son.
The Messiah and Literal Prince Established
In Government Is Still NOT the End in View
Following on further with the type and shadow of David as we look to the final kingdom, we know that he passed it on in peace to Solomon having put down all enemies to Israel at that time. As stated by Apostle Paul in
I Corinthians 15:24-25 and 28
24 Then cometh the end, when he (Messiah, the Son) shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
. . .
28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
This is clear that Messiah, in doing and completing that for which he was sent and came, would bring about a condition where all men responded directly to God and not under a Messiah of flesh any longer. We must remember the progression to a literal King as it developed in Israel as depicted in the history of the Prophet Samuel:
I Samuel 8:6-8
6 But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the Lord.
7 And the Lord said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.
8 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee.
Notice that this is distinctly with regard to the condition since Israel came out from Egypt. The “king” concept in literal rule over Israel was under the Covenant of God with Israel under the Law of Moses represented in the Second Set of Commandments. It was not established under their relationship in the Covenant of God with their fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The only King that appeared then was a theophany of God called the King of Peace or Salem, Melchisedec in Genesis 14, who had no descent nor length of days according to Apostle Paul in Hebrews 7. Therefore, the Law of Moses no longer being the Covenant to which Israel can be joined, in that it was fulfilled and terminated by Messiah in 1987 with the end and confirmation of the 70th Covenant Week of Daniel 9:24-27, Messiah as government or King can only be a temporary Prince to lead Israel to God, the King, directly in the relationship that Abraham also had. From there, it will be extended to all mankind eventually so that God will be all in all as stated in Jeremiah 31:34, Zephaniah 3:9, and Zechariah 14:9 as we have mentioned a number of times in this publication.
The clear point here is that we can see progression backwards to Abraham and that faith and relationship he had with God. We have the Law fulfilled and then a government established under the Prince, which gives Messiah the audience necessary to teach the people rightly as their Prophet, Priest, and King in intercession whereby they can be given direct access to God again. Therefore, it is redemption for Israel and mankind, thus restoring that which was lost. Moreover, it is resurrection bringing mankind to full understanding and spiritual life from under falsehoods, shortsighted-childlike concepts, and spiritual death.
Returning to 30 – 70 CE
The First Four Trumpets and Plagues are associated with the First Ministry of Messiah and the end of the witness thereto in the destruction of 70 CE as we stated.
What is the “Third” or “Third of Men”???
With the exception of the Fifth Trumpet and the Seventh Trumpet, we have in 1-4 and 6 the expression the “third” or “third of men.” If we move to Revelation 12, we find this is the third of the stars of heaven that are cast to the ground by the tail of the Dragon. We saw already in our explanation of Daniel 8, that this was those who fell or were cast to the ground from their original position in heaven or understanding and allegiance to the Covenant of God with Israel, once accepting the league with a foreign power, thus polluting the sanctuary of their strength.
In practical numbers, this is also all that is left once we remove the 10 Tribes, leaving part of Levi as Priests and Levites among the Tribes of Judah and Benjamin, which two tribes remained whole and intact, as well as a small remnant from the other tribes, such as we see identified in Anna in Luke 2 of the tribe of Asher. This group of basically Judah or Jews was then called Israel from that point as about one-third of the original Israel compared to the greater company previous to 721 BCE. Two-thirds are cut off, without identity, spiritually dead and lost in the nations surrounding the glorious land of Judea and Samaria, in the greater Holy Land taken over by Assyria in 721 BCE as we see in II Kings 17. Additionally, in Isaiah 19:24, we see remaining physical Israel of the two tribes of Judah and Benjamin with their few Levites are also the “third” with Egypt and Assyria, or the Arab peoples between the rivers Euphrates and Nile, which have intermarried over the centuries with the lost 10 tribes, or the 2/3s of the original physical Israel that were taken captive to the point of lost identity since 721 BCE, again according to II Kings 17.
Trumpets Are Positive in Respect of Removing
Within the details of the First Four Trumpets and Plagues of Revelation 8 in comparison with Revelation 16, we observe they are again quite ghastly in description and both negative in appearance. However, the Trumpet aspect, although as negative as the Plague in description, is STILL a positive, in the view of the believer, in the respect of the REMOVAL of the deception and that which rejected Messiah in 70 CE. We know the party under the Fifth Seal crying out “how long” and wanting vengeance, they being Jews not receiving Messiah due to the blindness of Leviticus 26:19 and Romans 11:25-27, although a positive company in one respect, also saw 70 CE as a negative. Short and to the point, only those in reception of the truth behind the First Four Seals saw the First Four Trumpets in the REMOVAL of the Temple Mount and Jerusalem as a positive. This was simply because they knew that it was the block to Israel receiving Messiah at that time and the power of deception used by the Scribes, Pharisees, and leadership of Israel, to foster and maintain their hold over the people in league with Rome for continued prosperity as we have analyzed in earlier Sections concerning the Herods and that league. When the judgment came, even as Christ had warned them to flee when they saw the armies compass Jerusalem in Luke 21, it was in the overall big picture to those with UNDERSTANDING, a positive. To all others, Jews under the Fifth Seal and all those in league with Rome as well, it was a negative and the First Four Plagues.
Again the “Gap”
As with Daniel between Daniel 11:35 and 36 there is an approximate 1900 years gap, between 70 CE, the First Four Trumpets and Plagues and fall 1987, the Fifth Trumpet and Plague. This is the gap between the judgment against Messiah’s rejection in his First Ministry and the judgment against Messiah’s rejection in his Second Ministry. We will now return to the verbatim use of the scripture with interpolated comments and paragraphs as was our custom in the exposition of Daniel. We will start with the First Four Trumpets and Plagues and move to the Fifth so that this gap is fully understood as we did when we considered Daniel 11:35 on to 36.
Revelation 8:2-5 Regarding Leviticus 16
However, it is very important that we consider the prelude to the Trumpets sounding regarding the Third of Men or strictly the physical people of Israel understood to be Jews. We must compare what it says in the Law and the Prophets and the atonement process of Leviticus 16 in particular. We remember that we have brought out how the First Ministry of Messiah only fulfilled the entrance into the Holy of Holies by the Blood of the sacrifice, which in the heavenly fulfillment gave the believer access to God directly. Here, only a few entered fully as we see well made clear by Apostle Paul’s letters and in particularly the Book of Hebrews. Messiah did not fulfill the coming out of the Holy of Holies doing away with sin altogether which Paul says in Hebrews 9:28 would happen when he appears the second time. This left the believers that did not come the full distance with Christ and the Apostles into the heavenly Holy of Holies, outside under blood atonement covering their still sinful condition, until the appearing of Messiah the second time.
The point we will see here in this prelude to the Trumpets to Israel is that national Israel did not even get as far as the atonement offered under Messiah. In summary, they did not see him the First Time!!! Let us show this in comparison between Leviticus 16 and this prelude in Revelation 8.
2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.
5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
11 And Aaron shall bring the bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and shall make an atonement for himself, and for his house, and shall kill the bullock of the sin offering which is for himself:
12 And he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from off the altar before the Lord, and his hands full of sweet incense beaten small, and bring it within the vail:
13 And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the Lord, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not:
14 And he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it with his finger upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times.
Therefore we see here in this comparison that in the heavenly application of the understanding of the fulfillment of the Law in Messiah, the way into the Holy of Holies was not open to Israel, according to the blindness of Leviticus 26:19, “heaven as iron,” during the Times of the Gentiles which was well on since spring of 537 BCE. They, according to Romans 11:25-27 could not come to deliverance removing their sins until Messiah returned at the end of the “fullness of the Gentiles” which is the same thing as the “Times of the Gentiles” used by Jesus in Luke 21:24. This inability, to enter or understand Messiah’s Ministry totally and in particular even the First Ministry, is pictured as the censer full of prayers of ALL saints, which included Jews holding to the Covenant of God with Israel, but not understanding its fulfillment in Christ as Paul makes clear in Romans 9-11. Thus, the censer is cast to the ground in judgment and is NOT TAKEN, as we see in Leviticus 16 it WAS TAKEN, into the Holy of Holies as part of the atonement. A portion of the Jews DID receive Messiah and to them through the Apostles, all being Jewish, the First Ministry was given to the remnant as we see marked out in Revelation 7. National Israel remained in blindness awaiting the end of the Times of the Gentiles, which was in spring of 1984 initiating the Appearing of Messiah the Second Time doing away with their sins at last. Israel’s atonement will be in the full removal of sin, not done under blood atonement entering into the Holy of Holies. In short, they will not come to Jesus as the Messiah and receive atonement for sin and be left as sinners saved under this provisional covering as Christians so have been. They will go from their current understanding under the Law directly into the removal of sin in the Scapegoat fulfillment within THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL. This is the same for Christians, now that the Age of Grace and blood atonement are over. They must also come to the total removal of sin within the higher revelation of THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL. Again, we emphasize as given in this metaphorical setting of Revelation 8:2-5 above, Israel nationally did not enter into the Ministry of Christ AT ALL and understood no entrance of Messiah into the Holy of Holies in heaven as stated by Paul. The atonement process was aborted for them as symbolized by the censer which was for entering into the Holy of Holies not being taken in, but cast upon the earth in judgment.
Jew First and also the Greek,
Trumpets and Plagues Are unto Israel,
And Apply only to Gentiles Secondarily.
As we saw in Ezekiel 14:1-11, the prophecy was unto the elders or leadership of Israel but included any strangers that sojourned among them. Following suit, the First and Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week 26-30 CE and then 1984-1987 CE respectively are solely unto Israel both in the world abroad and in the Zionist State, which “state” is not characterized in the Bible as “Israel.” It is the “Little Horn” that subdues three kings of Daniel 7:24-27, it is also the “King of Fierce Countenance” of Daniel 8:23-25, as well as the Willful King of Daniel of 11:36-45, and finally the “Beast Out of the Earth” of Revelation 13, and the chief manipulator in the relationship of whoredom as the “Great Harlot” of Ezekiel 23 and Revelation 17 and 18. It is never referred to as “Israel,” in Daniel or Revelation when in unbelief and rejection of the Law and Prophets and Messiah. The Israel of God remains to be identified in the End Time reception of Messiah and establishment of THE EVERLASTING KINGDOM publicly in due time, whether or not they reside as Jews identified colloquially as such in the world or the Zionist State prior to the time of full disclosure and public manifestation.
Degree of Affectation
The level at which the stranger or Gentile professors in the Promise and Covenant of God with Israel, indeed laid hold of that belief, determines the degree in which they are affected by what occurs to Israel whether in acceptance and blessing or in rejection and judgment concerning Messiah, and the truth he brings. In other words, in taking the position that they have part through the First Ministry of Messiah, as given by the Apostle Paul, they also must receive all that Israel receives as a blessing or a curse. Being part of the contract, Gentile as Christians - the strangers of Ezekiel 14:1-11 sojourning with Israel - they partake of all this agreement entails per their commitment to that position.
Considering the First Four
Trumpets and Plagues Verbatim
6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.
Understanding the First Trumpet / Plague
In reading Judges 9, or consulting again the Law and the Prophets, we find that the “men of Israel” of Judges 9:55 are presented as “trees” in the earlier verses of Judges 9:9-16, as God honored the curse of Jotham upon those that had dealt treacherously with his father’s house and family in slaying them. In Jeremiah 11:1-17, we have a prophecy to Judah and Jerusalem where in verse 16, it says: “The Lord called thy name, a green olive tree, fair and of goodly fruit…” Genesis 37:6-8 shows the tribes of Israel as the brethren of Joseph bowing down to him in a dream as their sheaves bowing down to his sheaf. In that the sheaves were being bound together in the dream, its shows they were of the spring harvest of wheat or some similar grain. These are spring, grass grains or fruit of grasses, where the trees produce the larger fruit. The meaning here is twofold. First of all, the trees and grass, being “green” and then burned up, is clearly 70 CE where the life and understanding they THOUGHT they had is destroyed, along with their link to God as they understand it in the destruction of the Temple / Holy Mount and Jerusalem. Also from the spiritual side, the harvests of Leviticus 23, as seen in the spring grass, which produces grains such as wheat and barley, and the fall trees, which produce fruit, the associated fulfillment of these harvests in Messiah were never seen by Israel due to their rejection of Messiah. As with the men of Israel that understood Jotham’s curse and complaint, the removal of the one who deceived and killed unjustly, to the believer was a Trumpet of victory.
As to the Plague aspect in Revelation 16:2, the destruction of 70 CE was purely on those that rejected Messiah and thus did not have the Holy Spirit and understanding thereby. They were marked in their forehead or hand, believing with their minds (forehead) or serving in their works (hand), in the primary instance by believing in self-determination, freewill, and choice which leads to secondarily supporting the Gentile, intrusive government under its appointed leaders out of Rome, such as the Herods. The Beast was Rome in rule over the Holy Land, the image unto the Beast was the Zionists in league with Rome to try and effectuate their concept of the Kingdom of God in the Holy Land, creating a deception to the Jews in dispersion and the world at large that they were the Israel of God in the prosperity experienced at that time, supposedly sanctioning Roman rule and that league with it. Again, the Beast is Rome at this time and the image is the Zionist idolatrous league with Rome revered in the world by their control of the Temple Mount and its rituals, falsely portraying to the world that it is the sanctioned by God - Israel of God. When it reached a breaking point under the ‘claims’ of Christianity joined with Judaism that the Kingdom of God was at hand, which Paul warned against in II Thessalonians 2, Rome turned upon it and crushed them in 70 CE. This was a grievous and noisome sore, noisome in that it is heralded through history as the noted destruction of 70 CE and is revealed as the Second Overturning of Ezekiel 21:25-27.
8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
3 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.
Understanding the Second Trumpet / Plague
The great mountain is the only great mountain to the Jewish people, that of the Holy / Temple Mount. Upon its destruction in 70 CE, the news was spread abroad in the world of Jewry of this great loss. The Jews in the nations (the sea) abroad, in the dispersion or the diaspora that yearly came to Jerusalem and the Holy Mount there for the Feast Days of the spring and fall were now cut off and slain by virtue of their link with God, as they understood same, being destroyed. The successful commerce, indicative of the “ships,” generated by the Herods in the prosperous relationship into which Israel had been seduced by Rome, as we made clear in our earlier Sections, also ceased. All of this died and was cut off due to the rejection of Messiah finalized in the great mountain or religiously significant Holy Mount and Temple in Jerusalem being consumed, “cast into the sea,” by Titus of Roman and made as just another part of the vast Roman Empire with no practical or usable religious significance any longer. All that was perceived by Israel in a link with God as life, the blood, those things surrounding the Law and its ceremonies and feast days became then death. To those heeding the Word of Christ to flee Jerusalem when they saw the armies compass it according to Matthew 24 and Luke 21, this was a Trumpet and positive in that they saw his word fulfilled, and the deception, which stood opposed to the truth they tried to declare in the nations in harmony with Apostle Paul, removed in judgment.
To those in the nations and the dispersed Jews, who believed what was transpiring in Jerusalem was the Kingdom of God then being established, against Paul’s warning in II Thessalonians 2, this was a Plague of destruction upon their concepts and beliefs, killing them spiritually as to this claim and their link with Jerusalem and the Holy Mount, thus slaying them spiritually in that destruction and separation.
10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.
5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.
6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.
7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
Understanding the Third Trumpet / Plague
Wormwood is Messiah in rejection, abhorred by the leadership in Israel, making the relationship with Rome, their lifeline as they understood it according to John 11:45-53, bitter and turning it upon the Zionists destroying them by 70 CE. Also, this, like the trumpet and plague, positive and negative aspects respectively, the waters of life to the believer accepting Messiah were the same bitter waters to those rejecting him, exposing their league with Rome, and deception to the then known world, ending in 70 CE.
12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise
8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
Understanding the Fourth Trumpet / Plague
Bringing Genesis 37:9-11 again to bear, the sun, moon, and stars darkened is the leadership and government of Israel removed literally in 70 CE in the Second Overturning of Ezekiel 21:25-27 This is a trumpet of deliverance to the righteous in the removal of that which persecuted the believers as we see in the Book of Acts and brought deception to the world. This was so much so that many false apostles went out behind the Apostle Paul as we see in II Corinthians 11, where some pointed back to Jerusalem saying the Kingdom was at hand pulling many simple Christians into the deception, against his warning in II Thessalonians 2. As to the plague aspect to the unrighteous, the false government they created in their league with Rome, represented as THEIR sun or government to which they pledged allegiance in John 19:15 in rejection of Messiah, comes against them in reverse of the successful and prosperous way they had looked upon Israel, once Zionist Israel caused insurrection in the Holy Land. Rome, Israel’s false sun and government they took instead of Messiah, then scorched them with the heat of destruction, bringing to desolation all the success Rome and the league with the Zionists of that day had previously together in the deception to the nations until that Second Overturning of 70 CE. Men blasphemed God because of the plague which was from God. This shows no understanding of why they were wrong and it left the seeds among those Jews in their descendants to return in 1948 - 1967 CE with the same deception and league with Revived Rome in the end time, as prelude to the imminent Third Overturning.
The Clear Gap in the Trumpets
13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabitants of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, WHICH ARE YET TO SOUND!
However, There Is No Clear Gap in the Plagues.
The deception being removed in 70 CE, there is no relevant prophecy with respect to Israel, positive or negative, until the deception returns in the Holy Land in the same league with Revived Rome in 1948 CE as it had with the Old Roman Empire from 63 BCE until 70 CE. However, the generation that had understanding, those who saw all of this destruction and removal of 70 CE as a positive and in that respect as a trumpet, passed physically from the world with the last one of record being the Apostle John around 100 CE, soon after recording this revelation of Jesus Christ given unto him. As we have pointed out previously, those spiritually alive or those who had passed from death unto life in the First Resurrection were those who had the positive understanding. They, being now gone from the world as to their physical existence, left NO representation of the fullness of knowing the truth concealed behind the First Four Seals, or a positive view of events in 70 CE as in the First Four Trumpets; hence, we have the clear gap from the Fourth to the Fifth Trumpet. It is only in the end time under Messiah returned, as Michael the Great Prince that such understanding is given again. Until then there is NO GAP in the Plague aspect, where men still blasphemed or rejected truth in their concept of self-determination, freewill, and deciding (or so they think) their own destiny. There is no understanding and only a false understanding from which they do not repent, but continue to reject or blaspheme God with their Zionist, Machiavellian approach to the Covenant of God with Israel. They stayed in the nations waiting and manipulating by force and deceit, until we see their emergence beginning in the 1800’s unto its public manifestation in 1948 CE, bringing about the same Zionist State in dependence on Revived Rome as we had in the Zionists and Rome of the Old Roman Empire.
We must remember any false positive, as it would appear ‘positive’ according to Ezekiel 14:1-11, is a deception and meant to sour in the long run to bring Israel to repentance and to where they will never depart again from their relationship with God honoring His Sovereignty. Therefore, the resurgence to come into the land out of time via the wrong method, without Messiah, is but a continuation of rejection of truth and a negative, remaining only as a Plague, made more vivid in reality from fall of 1987, the intifada, Arab uprising and forward from there. This is the Fifth Trumpet and Plague which we will address in Section XII.
This is the end of this Section XI, where we have brought everything and all comments clearly to the Sounding of the Fifth Trumpet and pouring out of the Fifth Plague just after Michael the Great Prince and the author left the Holy Land on December 3, 1987, the 1335th day of Daniel 12:12. We will go directly into the Fifth Trumpet and Plague in Section XII.
