Here we clarify with the proper interpretation of Revelation 12-14:13 which is the third repetition within the total Book of Revelation of the complete ministry of Messiah. Starting from his birth and fulfillment of the First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week from 26-30 CE, to his fulfillment of the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week from 1984-1987 CE, the judgment upon Israel and the world, running parallel with the blessing to Messiah, ensues. Through him and the completion of his ministry in totality, blessing is eventually brought to the world, beginning with Jerusalem and the Holy Mount, extending to the area between the rivers Euphrates and the Nile commonly called the Holy Land, and then all the known world upon the completion of the judgment and those events surrounding the time of the end, also called the Last End of the Indignation. This is the third of seven complete displays given in the Book of Revelation using signs, symbols, and metaphors to “signify,” the Revelation of Jesus Christ as given to John, the last of the living Apostles that saw Messiah and walked with him, as well as ministered the pure truth from him.
Truth First, but THEN the Deception Prevails
Michael and his Messengers
The Dragon and his Messengers
Stick to the Facts of the Bible,
Not Folklore of Conjecture Superimposed Upon It
In John’s hand, as those truly WITH him, the truth was undefiled, unlike it later certainly was defiled by the false apostles, the many antichrists of which John speaks in the Epistles of First and Second John. As we pointed out in our main Sections 1-13 and primarily 10 forward, Jesus Christ is Michael the Chief Messenger or Archangel, where the additional messengers or angels are the Prophets and Apostles that carried the truth. Additionally, God appears in the record of the Bible as one or many messengers or angels in a perceived supernatural appearance and disappearance. The only premise that Bible Scripture supports is God appearing in a body or bodies to deliver a message accordingly, additionally speaking through his human messengers the Prophets and Apostles, all of which are Michael’s angels or messengers. Any other assumptions such as the doctrine of angels as a separate race of beings created prior to Genesis 1 and other such folklore personified in pictured Bibles, sculptures from antiquity in art, and very prolifically seen is the construction of cathedrals for religious purposes, is without Bible authority according to truth. It is strictly supposition derived from heathen origins in ancient Egypt, Babylon, and other Gentile sources with their various gods and goddesses. Of course, once having this indoctrination, in the manners we have just stated, already established in us from our youth by those who have gone before with unauthorized handling of the Holy Writ, many, if not most, people then tend to picture this subject and these appearances within the way they are presented by folklore, fable, and the false apostles. It is only in reading the Bible, while excluding conjecture of preconceived concepts, along with having proper interpretation from the source designated at last, or in the final analysis – Michael of Daniel 10:21, where we can get our proper bearings and not overstep the Bible by superimposing such folklore upon it.
Two Sets of Messengers – Two Messages
Now as we approach Revelation 12 we see that Satan – the Devil – the Serpent – the Dragon, all being one and the same entity, has his angels or messengers as well, also called “demons,” which are the antichrists, false apostles and false prophets. They carry the SUPPOSED truth based upon the false foundation of self-determination, freewill, and choice. This is against, and stands in abject contrast to, Jesus Christ the Chief Messenger – Michael the Archangel, and his angels or messengers down through time such as the Prophets that proclaimed his coming and the Apostles that proclaimed his message in truth after he was gone with a view to his return. The two sides of this equation are contrasted by the Apostle Paul using himself as an example of the true messengers or angels versus the false in
II Corinthians 11(Selected)
2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
4 For if he that cometh preaches another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
5 For I suppose I was not a whit behind the very chiefest apostles.
. . .
12 But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we.
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
. . .
22 Are they Hebrews? so am I. Are they Israelites? so am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? so am I.
23 Are they ministers of Christ? . . . I am more; in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.
. . .
31 The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not.
It is the contest between the two messages purporting to be truth, the two set of angels or messengers carrying those messages, around which the scenario and picture presented in these verses of Revelation 12 are centered. There is the message of truth behind the 7 Seals, 4 of which were opened by Messiah to the Apostles. This revealed the foundational truth from which Adam departed, that of God’s Sovereignty, His control of ALL things in the 1st Seal, our neighbor being only what God has made and operates as well in the 2nd, the messengers of death and hell in the 3rd, and the message of death and hell in the 4th. As we brought out in earlier Sections, the first two seals, when opened, expose the liars behind the 3rd and 4th. Again, it is the two sets of messengers and the two very different messages. Sovereignty and God being in control of all things revealed from behind Seal 1 and 2, automatically reveals what is behind the 3rd and 4th. There we have the false prophets claiming apostleship or that they were sent with authority, often expressed as “called to the ministry,” carrying a message which is their “view,” also called by God and the truth “death” which propounds that God is separate from man with man in his own, little-god status deciding (or so he thinks) his own destiny by self-determination, freewill, and choice. Those that preach that message do so for reward in money and/or accompanying power over the people under their instruction. This doctrine and concept, which they insist is the “truth,” is strictly an illusion of the beast – man that is in honor as if he does understand when he does not, and therefore remains in death and perishing as stated in Psalm 49:20.
Remnant of the Faithful
A remnant, since Abel, has had insight into truth as did all those considered faithful to God, with one of the chief, central figures being Abraham. The contest with the false prophets within the Holy Land is depicted in glimpses of this battle of Revelation 12 in such places as Nimrod and those with him building a tower to heaven, Korah and Dathan and their princes against Moses, the prophets of Baal against Elijah, and supremely Messiah facing off against the Pharisees of 30 CE and repeated again between Messiah and the Zionists of the end time. This is a battle of a spiritual nature since the time of Adam and Eve and primarily relevant, as far as the Book of Revelation is concerned, during the Ministries of Messiah from 26-30 CE and those of his Apostles versus the false apostles of which Paul, Peter, John and Jude spoke and then again at the end time from 1984, the End of the Times of the Gentiles introducing the final Ministry of Messiah.
Emphasis on the Climax
In and around 1984-1987 CE with the Zionists standing against the Messiah and proper government which is according to the Law and Prophets, we have before us in Revelation 12 consummating in Revelation 14:13 this 3rd repetition ending in final victory of the true messengers over the false. Once again as we had in meticulous detail through Sections 1-13 of this publication, the consummation brings us to the Last End of the Indignation, where the “judgment did sit” as stated in Daniel 7:24-27. The ensuing 5th through the 7th Trumpet / Plagues destroy the false and establish the true. Let us now address these verses specifically to detail, in its various applications, this broad summary just given.
Overview of Revelation 12 (Part-A),
Then 13 (Part-B), and Lastly 14:1-13 (Part-C)
Chapter 12 presents the spiritual setting beginning with the First Ministry of Messiah briefly; but unlike Chapter 11, Chapter 12 is concentrating primarily on the Last Ministry of Messiah almost solely. Chapter 13 shows the physical and political world-stage-setting of the end time and all the players, again, as they are related to the Holy Land and Jerusalem in particular, where they have their influence due to entering and being involved with Jerusalem and the Covenant of God with Israel during the Temple-Time-Period of the Ministries of Messiah, understood to be the First and Last Halves of Daniel’s 70th Week. This is predominantly, once again, with the concentration being on the end time and the Last End of the Indignation associated with the fulfillment and completion of the Period of Daniel’s 70th Week. Chapter 14:1-13 gives the climax and closing scene as the curtain falls after the return of Messiah with the company of the remnant of the First Ministry, those raised to life in the First Resurrection of 26-30 CE in verses 1-5, bringing victorious conclusion at the end time in verses 6-13. That arrival and final scene, as we have also observed from Revelation 7 and Revelation 11, immediately depicts the deliverance occurring as well as the judgment rendered after the First Ministry, however only as the result of the Second Ministry ending this 3rd installment of the entire picture of judgment and deliverance based upon the confirmation of the full 70th Week of Daniel and Messiah’s Two Ministries fulfilling same.
Why the Immediate Jump as It Seems?
Again, and it cannot be over emphasized that Jesus, in giving this Revelation to John, does not show clearly the long time of the clear gap between the First Ministry of 26-30 CE and that of the end time. Additionally, Daniel does not show this as well. He only gives us the gap, if one can perceive it, where it is most pronounced between the last depiction of ancient Rome and the ministry of Messiah and the Apostles in in conflict with Old Rome and the league with the Zionists of that day in Daniel 11:30-35 and then the final depiction of Revived Rome / UN in league with the Zionist State / Willful King in 11:36-45. There is no known timing apparent between these two scenarios. Adding to the confusion on this matter, from Daniel 7 and 8 there is no clear gap at all. This appearance COULD lead to the conclusion, when just considering those two chapters of Daniel privately, everything occurred within the Old Roman Empire. It is this illusion based upon such isolation of certain portions of scripture that gives support in the minds of many for Preterism and their false assumption that the full 70th Week was finished by the stoning of Stephen in Acts 7 or, as some teach, by the 70 CE destruction of Jerusalem.
Daniel 2 MUST be the Standard and Precedent
As we pointed out in our main Sections 1-13, first of all, the Law of Moses shows two in the cherubim overlooking the mercy seat from where God communicated with Moses in Exodus 25:16-22, two sets of Holy Days ⸻ one in the spring and the other in the fall in Leviticus 23:1-44, and two ministries of atonement of the high priest ⸻ one of blood atonement for sin and the other of total removal of sin in Leviticus 16:20-22. Secondly, in the Prophets, Joel 2 shows the two times of blessing associated with the spring and the fall rains, Isaiah 28 shows the split ministry clearly in the “here a little, there a little, and Zechariah 4:1-14 show the foundation and finish of the Temple of God in the two Messiah Ministries depicted as two anointed ones feeding the oil to the lamps, one on either side. Third and finally, Daniel is only understood by keeping the first incident of interpretation in Daniel 2 as the precedent when considering the rest of Daniel. That precedent clearly shows a Kingdom in dominance over the Holy Land of “iron and clay” in the feet and ten toes of the image in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream interpreted to him by the Prophet Daniel. This was the last kingdom upon which the stone cut without hands breaks the Gentile domination of the Holy Land and establishes the manifestation of the Everlasting Kingdom of God. This “iron and clay” section comes AFTER the two legs made up of solely “iron.” When applying this precedent to Daniel 7 and 8 which MAY APPEAR to be the Ancient Roman Empire in the final stage, we must rightly divide by the precedent of the two Messiah Ministries and Daniel 2 in the following manner:
Daniel 7:7a-b and THEN Daniel 7c Forward
7 (Part a) After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: (Part b) it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; (Part c) and it had ten horns.
8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots (Syria, Jordan, and Egypt in the Six Day War of June 1967 CE): and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things (The great things it speaks are that the collective move of Zionism forming the Zionist State is collective messiah bringing deliverance and a return of “true” Israel to the Holy Land according to the positive prophecies in the Law and Prophets of the Old Testament, when it is really the Little Horn forcing its way in as a negative party and negative prophecy of fulfillment).
9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down (Same as Daniel 2 when the stone cut without hands, Messiah and his government destroy Gentile domination in the establishment of the manifestation of the Everlasting Kingdom), and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.
Daniel 7:7a-b are the total Roman kingdom which, as seen in Daniel 2, extends in its solely iron tenure to come back again as the Revived Roman Empire of iron, however, mixed with clay in the feet and ten toes of the image in Daniel 2. It is at this point, or the mention of the “10,” that Daniel 7 c “and it had ten horns” begins and then enters in Daniel 7, verse 8-9, the time of the “10” calling them “horns” in Daniel 7 rather than “feet” with ten toes as they are designated, being the exact same thing, in Daniel 2. Between these verses ending with Daniel 7:7a-b and then starting again with Daniel 7:7c there are many centuries between 63 BCE Old Rome of “iron” and the appearance of the 1947/48/67 CE Revived Rome of the United Nations in control of the 10 Arab kings or countries of the Holy Land composed of the “iron and clay.” This is where Preterism gets off track and loses its way, by not leaving Daniel 2 in full control and established precedent, nor considering the two ministries, one in spring and the other in the fall, of Messiah, as well as the fact that Messiah PERSONALLY must fulfill the 70th Week and not some vicarious representative such as Stephen or the Apostles.
Daniel 8:25a-b and THEN Daniel 8:25 c
22 Now that being broken (Alexander the Great), whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation (4 Generals divide kingdoms after Alexanders death), but not in his power.
23 And in the latter time of their kingdom (their kingdom or one of the general’s areas that evolved into the Roman Empire in domination over the Holy Land), when the transgressors are come to the full (Time of the 70th Covenant Week of Daniel in 26-30 CE and 1984-1987 CE, rejecting Messiah in his First Ministry and Last), a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power (Same as in Revelation 13:11, this is Zionists operating in the power of the Roman Empire in 26-30 CE and Revived Rome in 1984-87: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people (Israel as a nation is led into following the deception that the Promise of God with the Israel of God can be accomplished by a collective messiahship or the league between Rome in 26-30 CE according to John 11:45-53 and 19:15 and the religious leadership, and later between Revived Rome via the UN, and UNGA Resolution 181 in particular, and the Zionist religious leadership).
25 (Part a) And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many (From the time of Herod the great and his successors before, during, and just after the 26-30 CE ministry of Messiah and surfacing again before, during and just after the 1984-1987 ministry of Messiah, the king of fierce countenance – Zionists in league with Rome, bring a false peace and prosperity intensifying the deception that the Covenant of God with Israel can be confirmed in this unholy manner rather than by God’s Anointed Messiah): (Part b) he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes (Zionists in league with Rome reject and kill Messiah ending the First Ministry and the First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week in 26-30 CE); (Part c) but he shall be broken without hand (This is the final outcome of the Last Ministry and the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week, when the Last End of the Indignation continues on until deliverance is manifested in Messiah to national Israel at last with his proper government overturning Jerusalem and the Holy Mount for the last time).
Daniel 8:25a-b are the total Roman kingdom which extends past the time of standing up against the Prince of princes, Messiah – Jesus Christ in 26-30 CE to come back in the same character in the league with Zionists manipulating the Roman world to accomplish its desired end according to THEIR protocol in 1948 / 1967 CE near the time of end of 1984-1987 initiating its final demise. That final end time and demise is only stated in Daniel 8:25c as “but he shall be broken without hand.” All of Daniel 8 in the last beast/kingdom there is dealing with THE CHARACTER OF ROME IN TOTALITY over the centuries to the present and the NATURE OF THE ZIONIST ENTITY in league with Rome during the First Ministry of Messiah and the Second. Also, Rome from 63 BCE on is called the “little horn” during this entire scenario in Daniel 8 with the Zionist entity appearing as the “king of fierce countenance” in verse 23. Whereas in Daniel 7 the little horn IS the Zionist entity operating in power and authority of the Roman world of the United Nations in the end time once the 10 horns come into plain view from Daniel 7c on.
It is Daniel 2 setting the line of demarcation between the “iron” of solely Rome and the “iron and clay” of Revived Roman / the United Nations as main precedent joined with the events marked out by Michael to Daniel the Prophet in Daniel 11 that show clearly, as stated by Daniel in Daniel 10, that the “time is long.” Daniel 2 and 11 must bracket Daniel 7 and 8, even as they are literally located in the Book of Daniel. If we do not use that precedent and bracket, we will read the map erroneously and windup, as too many have, in the ditch of confusion and wrong assumption by entering Daniel without the understanding of Michael, the Archangel, or Chief Messenger, the one that gave this record to Daniel and therefore the only one to read that map and guide us accordingly.
If there ever was proof that Isaiah 28 is true and accurate as to its mandate that the Word of Lord comes “here a little” and “there a little” so that the reader would be taken and snared and fall backward in confusion or false assumption, the mishandling of the Book of Daniel and then Revelation is that clear proof. It is paramount that we see the GAP between the Ministries of Messiah, leaving the 1984-1987 Ministry unto Israel as the initiating incident to finish the Mystery and Plan of God in the end time now upon us, as He has given it “here a little” and “there a little” “line upon line” “precept upon precept” through the Law and Prophets.
Unknown Factor of TIMING leads to the Deduction
That there is an Immediate Return
AT A TIME NOT EXPECTED
Therefore, as we have stated clearly in our previous Sections 1-13, we here emphasize again, not knowing the End of the Times of the Gentiles, Christ and his Apostles pointed to an immediate return and judgment taking the world by surprise as a thief in the night. This was contingent upon Christ being physically present again, and producing the final resurrection as stated in Daniel 12:1-7. Any tribulation such as 70 CE, or major world war affecting somewhat the Holy Land, is not the tribulation of Daniel 12 unless those two factors ⸻ Messiah physically present and full resurrection to truth ⸻ are part of the equation. Additionally, there must be a THIRD OVERTURNING of the control of the Holy Mount when it is taken again from the Zionists regime in a manner different than the strictly military manner of 586 BCE and 70 CE. The Zionists control of the Holy Land in the power and authority of the United Nations of Revived Rome must concede to the rule of Messiah. It is this event that will manifest Messiah publicly and will indeed bring Great Tribulation such as never was since there was a nation, upon which the full Resurrection and Redemption extended past Jerusalem and the Holy Land will be consequent. It will be a tribulation of earthquake, spiritual proportions, “such as never was since there was a nation,” and tribulation of a different nature than 586 BCE or 70 CE.
Spiritual Tribulation of Earthquake Proportions
When the religious and secular world finds out that Messiah is back and rules the Middle East, the Sons of Isaac and Ishmael, just where will all their religious ideas and assumptions be then? They will be proven to be where they are already in actuality, however realized by all at that time, as in the ditch of false assumption and confusion, destroyed by the flood of the waters of truth fulfilled, showing that their foundation of self-determination, freewill, and choice is eternally removed, and only God’s Sovereign control remains. They too are but puppets on God’s strings performing His Will to bring this 6-day, or 6000-year plan of Creation, to its climax and justified end. It is in realizing that fact as MANIFESTED, upon which all areas of the world will be reborn. It is upon that firm foundation, it shall blossom forth as the MANIFESTED Everlasting Kingdom in the good of the final message, THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL.
Part-A: Revelation 12
Addressing Chapter 12 the War in Heaven
Which DID NOT End in the Resurrection of Christ,
It DID NOT Consummate in His First Ministry;
Hence, the Need for the Second Coming to Finish
And Bring Final Exposure and Victory.
1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
Proper Consideration of the Term “Woman”
Again, the metaphor here in verse one, “woman,” is clearly Israel as indicated by Genesis 37:9-11 of the Law and the Prophets, as we have emphasized throughout this publication. However, this is Israel in the broad view of God’s purpose for her, in that it was through Isaac and later Isaac’s heir Jacob, through to Judah on to David etc., that Abraham’s Seed for blessing to all the nations came. Messiah and the blessing and redemption offered came through the physical lineage of Isaac. The general blessing, due to being Abraham’s literal heir as was Ishmael, Abraham’s firstborn, according to Genesis 16:10-12 and 17:18-21 did not involve Messiah, nor did Messiah come through that branch of Abraham’s lineage. It is Israel that was the physical vehicle to produce Messiah. It is Messiah singularly that is the promised seed according to Galatians 3:16-29, with others being of that seed once accepting his leadership over them via the Spirit of Messiah being in them as well. In considering Israel in its original broad view and espousal to God since the Exodus from Egypt under Moses, we must keep the idea, of the Zionists versus the faithful remnant, out of the picture in this metaphor of “woman” or later “the woman.” This is simply Israel proper, in her purpose as a holy or separate people unto God.
2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
First Ministry of Messiah
Birth to Ascension
We see here that Israel produces Messiah, and prior to that, the Mindset of Man under the illusion of self-destiny stands ready to destroy that which proves the Dragon is in error. In time and space or literally, we see this represented in Herod the Great trying to preserve his leadership, thus killing the newborn children in Bethlehem. We notice the Dragon has all the paraphernalia as the Beast Out of the Sea in Revelation 13; yet, we must keep timing before us. What is empowered by the Dragon in Revelation 13, the Beast Out of the Sea has equally 7 heads, 10 horns, etc. In other words, within the part it plays on the world stage physically, we can see no difference in the physical (the beast) versus spiritual (the dragon) or the mindset within that motivates the beast physically seen without. They are one and the same as a package deal in the part they play. We saw earlier that the Beast ascends out of the bottomless pit in the future from Revelation 11; but, when we go to Revelation 20 where we find this time of its release and ascension out of the bottomless pit, it is the Dragon that is loosed in the end time from his prison, where it had been locked away for almost two millennia once the 70 CE destruction destroyed its ability to deceive. Again, the Beast is the vehicle that is physically seen, and the Dragon is the unseen spirit or mindset that drives it.
Two Are One and the Same Thing,
But Different in Symbolic Presentation
Later we will see another two metaphors that are the same thing, but they are different in the symbolism used: The False Prophet compares to the Whore that rides atop the Beast. These are the third cord in the threefold cord of deception that actually brings the Bible façade to shroud the deception in supposed biblical authority for its actions, via misinterpretation without proper authorization, in order to support the Dragon mindset and justify the actions of the Beast. We find the essence of the False Prophet is also those in whoredom with the nations according to Ezekiel 23 manipulating the nations or riding the Beast Out of the Sea in Revelation 17 and 18, the same Beast presented here in Revelation 12. The Harlot and the False Prophet are seen in “the third of the stars” cast to the earth. Unlike “the woman” proper as Israel in her original purpose to bring Messiah, the third are indeed Israel led by the Zionists that are marked out particularly from the time of Daniel forward as we have brought out in Sections 1-13, which have succumbed to the Dragon mindset and joined in league with the Beast to try and accomplish the Law and the Prophets via an unauthorized means. It is this method of operation described in Daniel 7:25 as “think to change times and laws,” that they use in an attempt to fulfill the Covenant of God with Israel in the Law of Moses, by diverse and unauthorized manipulations. Such machinations put them in violation of the Torah, specifically Leviticus 26:18-39, and later the Prophets with their 70 Weeks return to the land under Cyrus against Daniel declaring they were not in compliance with the character and condition for a return as stated in Daniel 9:13. It is in this league with Gentile powers that they bring the façade and shroud or appearance of biblical authority to support the actions of the Beast operating in the Dragon mindset. That mindset is also that of the False Prophet as well, believing, as “the king of fierce countenance” of Daniel 8:23-25, it understands “dark sentences” by the way of THEIR interpretation of the scriptures to so act without Messiah. It is thereby that they come in conflict with Messiah and stand against the Prince of princes so vividly in 30 CE to kill him. However, they will be broken in the end time by Messiah, as we have been considering through the entirety of this publication.
Once Again, the Gap of Undetermined Length
After Christ’s 30 CE ascension as pictured in the metaphors of verse 5 of Revelation 12, there is the undetermined time of the Leviticus 26:18-39, Seven Times more or the Times of Gentiles, which started centuries previous in 537 BCE and was still dominating as the broader parenthesis within which the First Ministry of Messiah took place. From the end of the First Ministry in 30 CE we had the 1954 years to bring us to the Second Ministry of Christ to Israel which also terminated the 2520 years in 1984 that started in 537 BCE. All that is said here in Revelation 12 of this time awaiting Christ’s return to deal with Israel again in the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week of 1984 - 1987 is limited to a statement that Israel, “the woman” is in the wilderness where she fled after Christ’s ascension, and specifically after the 70 CE destruction and removal of Jerusalem and the Holy Mount in that military conquest under Titus of Rome.
6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
Israel “the Woman” of the End Time
Is Solely Identified in Messiah
And later those Receiving Messiah
The fact that there are others that will eventually be identified as part of “the woman” Israel by coming under the reign of Messiah in the end time does not help us identify her prior to that time. Therefore, it is very important in understanding these scriptures that we limit “the woman” to an unidentified company awaiting the finish of Messiah’s work and ministry whereby they will then see and accept him over them in proper government. In following him and his actions and fulfillment of Daniel’s 70th Week, and in particular the final and Last Half of that 70th Week along with the ensuing events up until public manifestation, we CAN see and understand “the woman” as presented here in this portion Revelation 12. As a thief in the night, secret as to the world at large, but here revealed in this publication via the author’s witness per Michael’s permission to publish, we CAN see “the woman” in potential. For ultimately, it is those that receive him and his authority via receiving the same mindset as presented in THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL that will be identified as the Israel of God, the “holy people” of Daniel 12:7. This applies both nationally to the Zionist State CALLED Israel, and to the individual claiming citizenship as such. Neither one is Messiah’s fellow citizen and brother until under proper authority of Michael the Great Prince. All must come to depart from the Dragon mindset of self-determination, freewill, and choice in order to understand full truth that we are puppets on God’s strings, and then so live our lives in that truth extended to one another which will bring the peace and accord which we all desire.
If One Does Not Know,
Then Wait and Do Not Act in Haste
As we have pointed out, the time of Messiah’s Second Coming not being known, due to the end of the Times of the Gentiles not being known, intelligence was withheld by God as well, regarding when to return to the Holy Land. However, what was not withheld as to intelligence is clear from
23 Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the Lord.
2 Therefore thus saith the Lord God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the Lord.
3 And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.
4 And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the Lord.
5 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, The Lord Our Righteousness.
7 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that they shall no more say, The Lord liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;
8 But, The Lord liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.
As made clear in our earlier Sections, the move to return in 539 BCE through 537 BCE which is the premise of Daniel 10, was not under this formula of Jeremiah 23:1-8. Daniel saw that they were not in the right spirit to return as stated in Daniel 9:13 and did not go with them but, as stated in Daniel 10:13, he remained with the Kings of Persia. This whole scene deteriorated from a false Gentile messiah, as was the case when they used Cyrus, King of Persia, down to a collective messiah claim in the Sanhedrin, Scribes and Pharisees, where they rejected the real Messiah altogether in 30 CE. Today it has returned in this collective manner to stand opposed to Messiah again, clearly not within the structure of Jeremiah 23:1-8 just quoted as well. It is called “making haste,” and is principally acting without authority to try and accomplish, by alternate means and methods, a noble goal and objective in the attitude of impatience and self-will, not waiting upon God and His timing. It is the exact opposite of the character of the faithful given in
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
The contrast, to this lack of waiting to receive full understanding before acting, is what we have in verse 6 of Revelation 12, “the woman” the unidentified company. They, as of yet, are not in the intelligence of Messiah’s presence and fulfillment of the Last Half of the Covenant 70th Week of Daniel from 1984-1987. They are still waiting patiently being fed by the Word of God within what they DO understand. She too misses this time of the 1260 days, 42 months, 3 and ½ years, and “time times and the dividing of time” due to the Zionist intrusion into the Holy Land in 1948, taking control of the Temple / Holy Mount in 1967 ahead of time and before the Times of the Gentiles of Leviticus 26:18-39 were over and certainly NOT within the structure given for any return as stated in Jeremiah 23:1-8. They, as Daniel of old, knowing this return of Zionists is erroneous due to not having Messiah at its head, cannot see Messiah there at Jerusalem and the Holy Mount at the appropriate time. They are fed however, and continue to be fed by holding to the Law and Prophets and their proper fulfillment that occurred in 1984-1987, the 1260 days, time times and the dividing of time, 3 and ½ years of the Messiah Ministry of the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week, which will be given to them in due to time when the obstruction of Zionism, the full-blown, manifestation of the hinderer to receiving truth, is removed and replaced by Messiah and his proper government in the third overturning of Jerusalem and the Holy Mount now before us. They, or “she,” the “woman,” in a quite literal manner, will not return in support of the Zionist deception and remains with a claim of believing Jews of Judaism in the nations or “in the wilderness.” Even if they happen to be present in the Holy Land due to being there prior to 1948, they do not consider their government to be the Zionist entity but remain as part of the greater Middle East population not respecting the Zionist occupation as anything of proper Bible authority. Again, in the broadest sense, they can only be properly and finally identified with the public manifestation and their allegiance to Messiah at that time. Although we cannot give a carte blanche approval of acceptance to the following, there is great hope that there are those within same that will recognize the truth first and come to the aid of others when the final manifestation comes. They are adamant in one simple fact with which we concur: NO MESSIAH – NO ISRAEL OF GOD ESTABLISHED PROPERLY IN JERUSALEM!!! See the following website in this regard: http://nkusa.org
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
Timing and Nature of the War
What Is Heaven?
As we have pointed out the War in Heaven has been ongoing since the beginning in the Garden of Eden until its finale in the end time when the Mystery of Iniquity, the Man of Sin, the Son of Perdition is exposed by the brightness of Messiah’s coming. As we also made clear, this is not a one-man, literal figure as propounded by false prophets claiming authority to teach, when they know nothing as they ought to know. These terms such as the Man of Sin and the Son of Perdition, are speaking of the mindset of Adam from the beginning coming to the full-blown manifestation of standing against God publicly in the Holy Land and Jerusalem in particular, now seen as the Zionist State of Daniel 7:24-27 subduing three kings or Syria, Jordan, and Egypt to establish itself in the “glorious holy mountain” or the Temple / Holy Mount as seen in Daniel 11:36-45. It is at this time of full manifestation against God, that the brightness or “enlightenment” with full knowledge and understanding through Messiah ousts the Dragon which is the mindset that believes man is his own entity apart from his Creator formulating and devising his own destiny.
Earth and Heaven
Although the physical earth between the river of the Nile and Euphrates is where this scene is played out, heaven is where this spiritual war takes place, so we need to be clear where “heaven” is located, as a matter of reality. We must no longer advocate and hold to the fantasy as has been portrayed erroneously in the shortsighted understanding of literalists without authority to interpret the Word of God in the first place.
1 Thus saith the Lord, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?
2 For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the Lord: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembles at my word.
Forever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.
The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.
He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heaven by his understanding.
And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the Most-High, and I praised and honored him that lives forever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:
Matthew 6:10 and 19-21
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Ephesians 2:1 and 6
1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;…
6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,
11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:
11 Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne (this is “heaven” according to Isaiah 66:1-2 stated above), even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
Strong’s Concordance gives H8064 in the Old Testament, as well as G3772 and G2032 in New Testament as the words in Hebrew and Greek translated “heaven” from H8064 and G3772 for the most part, with G2032 used only four times in Ephesians as “heavenly places.” As we can observe, this is where Nebuchadnezzar looked and received “understanding.” Paul states the believers with him are seated there while he physically was writing his letter to the Ephesians being literally on earth. Christ tells us to lay up treasures there while we are still physically on earth. Those who relegate their understanding around Jesus ascending into heaven in Acts 1and conclude he kept going, until he wound up beyond the stars in the 3rd heaven and other such derivative doctrines of literalism and antiquity of folklore applied to the Bible, should drop such assumptions and do some research in Strong’s Concordance and apply ALL the Word of God to their conclusions. Heaven is the realm of the spirit or mind of God and is played out in physical terms in matter and energy expressed in time and space on earth. If we are in heaven, we are in understanding of truth and see life and existence from God’s stand point and view. Again, we sit with Messiah, by having the same understanding of truth, even as he sits with God according to Revelation 3:21 just given above.
Well What About the Devil Being There?
The mindset of self-determination, freewill, and choice, believing it is correct, is in heaven by profession which is the scenario of Revelation 12. This is the battle to acquire proven supremacy, and therefore substantiate for perpetuity that which is the real truth. Paul makes it clear that this battle was not over and done within the First Ministry of Christ as he tells the believers that they were wrestling against powers of darkness in heavenly places as he wrote his letter to the Ephesians. Heaven is not a place of actual, physical location but rather the seat of understanding, proper understanding of truth and revelation of same from God. Those of the self-destiny mindset believe they are correct and therefore see life and existence, per their false mindset, as IF they are in the knowledge God and with God in heaven correctly, BUT THEY ARE NOT. Those of the faithful that have the mindset of the Holy Spirit believing there is no self-destiny, thereby they also believe they are correct and therefore see life and existence as if they are in the knowledge God and with God in heaven, ARE INDEED CORRECT. Within these two concepts are the Mystery of Iniquity and the Mystery of God respectively. The keyword here is “mystery” in that nothing is proven right or wrong, positive or negative, until full truth is revealed doing away with “mystery.”
Ironically, it is the full truth that will justify both parties in that both are within the 100 percent purview and prewritten plan of God, doing and believing exactly what He has given them to believe. The true believers, angels or messengers with Michael adhere to that fact. The messengers of Satan do not, but will adhere to it eventually, when they, individually, are raised into the full enlightenment. However, Revelation 12 is dealing not with the finished product, but rather the contest before arriving to that finished product. It is here that Paul and other believers remained embroiled in battle awaiting the Second Coming to settle the matter once and for all.
The War in Heaven Rages on Until . . .
The two concepts and the proponents of each have been at war since the Garden of Eden. It rages in physical evidence on earth in time and space revealed and played out in matter and energy. However, the mindset in heaven, or in the seat of understanding, is the operating force behind what we see in physical evidence. Both concepts are in heaven by profession, neither proven out as victorious until the final revelation of all mysteries by the declaration of the truth in full exposure at the end time. Yes . . . those in the First Resurrection of 30 CE got the victory personally by the revelation of truth to them individually. However, as we additionally see, whatever they had was unable to defeat the onslaught of false prophets that took the Apostles’ message and perverted it right back into the same mindset of self-destiny interpreted in all areas of religion here at the end time under such terms as “freewill” or “free moral agency.” It is only THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL declared by Michael the Great Prince at the appropriate time, as we have shown meticulously in the Sections 1-13 of this publication, that brings full exposure and final victory that will even convert those who have been enemies to the truth in the long run. A preview of that conversion of the enemies in the wrong mindset is seen in the experience of the Apostle Paul who heard Christ directly and was changed in Acts 9.
The Beginning of the War
The Mystery of Iniquity
Adam, operating by the authority or mindset of the Dragon when taking Eve to propagate the race of humanity, had ALREADY rose up against God imbibing as fact his idea (as he thought it indeed was) that he was a free-moral-agent deciding good and evil. He then went about to prove this concept by convincing Eve to participate whereby they could attain god-like status evidenced in the ability of creating children, men and women, or life perpetually through Eve in the sex act producing the human race. Therefore, the bestial creation - man, having not arrived at Son of God status in maturity, but acting as if he indeed had arrived, within the concept of self-determination, freewill, and choice, when in that mindset, becomes the Dragon, that Old Serpent, the Devil.
Only Three and NOT Four in the Garden of Eden
Again, there are only three parties in the Garden scenario – God, Adam, and Eve. Adam in the mindset of self-determination, acting as an entity apart from his Creator, is the Serpent and “apparent” fourth party. He was in this mindset and therefore IS the Serpent prior to Eve being convinced to submit. This is not clear in Genesis 3 and is part of the sealing done by God upon the Bible to make it interpreted only by one, Messiah, Michael of Daniel 10:21. The author of these pages was privileged to be in Michael’s presence the very hour this mystery of Genesis 3 was revealed, which was after we had returned from the Holy Land, leaving on the 1335th day of Daniel 12:12. This was due to the fact, as we have pointed out in Sections 1-13, Daniel’s 70 Weeks WERE fulfilled bringing the further revelation of those things not revealed within the First Ministry of Messiah of 26-30 CE. From that revelation in the author’s presence as God opened this to Michael, it was made clear that Adam, still in the Garden, then in the scenario as the simple man and husband of Eve, is but a pawn in the hands of what appears to be the Serpent and Eve initiating ideas and actions which are then passed on to the mere simple man Adam who suffers accordingly. Truth of the matter, now that we have full insight, is that there is no animal, as taught by literalists, which could talk and then was cursed to lose its legs and crawl on its literal belly. Let us now analyze Genesis 3 in particular so that we can plainly understand what is before us in the War in Heaven in Revelation 12.
1 Now the serpent was more subtill than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
Identifying the “spirit” is the Critical Point
This is the carnal man having departed from God in his mindset to believe he is a free-moral-agent and can operate apart from his Creator; therefore, he is not subject to God in his own psyche but rather is at enmity with, or an enemy of, God as Paul states in
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
Prior to this state of mind, Adam was in development as man on the way to full Son of God status, when this concept of free-moral-agency, freewill, and choice by one’s own will as a separate entity from God, entered his mind as stated in
1 The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord God; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God:
3 Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee:
This is not a statement of fact but is rather a statement of attitude in the Man of Sin, here called the King of Tyrus. Although the literal kingdom of Tyre and the literal Prince of Tyrus were real at a particular point in history, this is not the thrust of this scripture. As Jeremiah 50-51 uses literal Babylon to describe spiritual Babylon of the last days when the real fulfillment of its destruction is seen as we have presented in our Sections 10-13, so here in Ezekiel 28 the Man of Sin, the carnal mind of man in every man, or kingdom that comes to power in the spirit of self-destiny, is the same in character wherever or whenever it surfaces. What is stated in verse 3 of Ezekiel 28 is the same as in Daniel 8:25-27 with the Zionists in later years thinking they understand the dark sentences of the Law and Prophets and attempt to fulfill same within their own concept. Their understanding is however, exactly opposed to the true understanding in the Prophet Daniel in his day, Messiah in his First Ministry, and again against Messiah in the Last Ministry just before its exposed and removed permanently. Moving on to Ezekiel 28:4 exposing this same spirit:
4 With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:
5 By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches: (Again when bringing Ezekiel 14:1-11 to bear upon this scenario here in Ezekiel 28, we see the prosperity which is indicative of the deception God has ordained upon any alternate approach to God in an iniquitous manner. This apparent success is only fully understood in its job to bring the whole program full circle to disastrous results.)
6 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God;
7 Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness.
8 They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas.
9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slays thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slays thee.
10 Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God.
11 Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covers; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.
19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.
As we can see from this prophecy, it states and is clear that the one in the garden of God is “a man,” and not an ethereal spook, nor an animal with two legs that is changed later to become something that crawls on the literal ground, as projected by religious minds of literalism. He is also stated to be complete or “perfect” up to a point, and from that point deviated, or until iniquity was found, to the degradation we all see today. This is represented as the King of Tyre, but is fully, spiritually, and properly understood, when comparing all of the Word of God, as the MINDSET of the King of Tyre, which is the same mindset in Adam in the Garden of God as this portion of Ezekiel 28 states, in his deviation from perfection. This is the interruption in his growth process on the way to maturity or full Son of God status. In this mindset, believing he had arrived at Son of God status when he had not, he is the Son of the Wicked One, a product of HIS OWN devices as he perceives himself; thus, in that condition he is the Man of Sin and the Son of Perdition and in the Garden of Eden scenario, “but a man,” Adam, the “Serpent.” Adam, in his mindset or Dragon mentality, thought he had arrived at full maturity with God or was godlike knowing good and evil and was ready to take action in that premature state to propagate the race of humanity, or produce additional life proving, in his mind, his godlike status. This is the Serpent, the Devil, and the Dragon.
Son of God versus Child of the Devil
Man is the Beast that perishes when he understands not according to Psalms 49:20. When he receives the full Holy Spirit or comes in actuality to Son of God status via having the same mindset as Messiah, he is joint-heir with Christ and a second born even as Christ is the firstborn. When he receives an alternate understanding he believes is truth, when it is a lie, or a shortsighted concept, that concept being self-determination, freewill, and choice, he is a child of the Devil: A product of deviation away from truth, yet thinking he has truth.
Adam, operating in Genesis 3 to take control and deceive and manipulate to his ends, is the Serpent. Adam, as a mere participant and therefore a recipient of said action is just man or Adam, the man, Eve’s husband. With this understanding Genesis 3 can now be seen for the reality that it is portraying, and not the fantasy from which much doubt is cast upon the Bible, right from its very beginning as being a fairytale, not to be taken seriously.
2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
Who Did It?
We can see the order in the scenario as the Serpent beguiles Eve in discourse and reasoning, and she enters by taking the action described as “eating” which is also entered by Adam (“her husband”) without any beguiling, discourse or reasoning whatsoever. Here has been a clear clue all along, of the same person being the Serpent Adam and simple man, Adam, Eve’s husband. Adam, her husband, just partakes readily. Why? Well, because he was the one WHO DID IT to start with. He, as the Serpent in the mindset of self-determination initiated the concept in Eve. Notice how she says: “Neither shall ye touch it” and that she “saw it was pleasant to the eyes.” This is also a clue as to how the Serpent Adam was manipulating her to his objective. They were well- aware of how the species of animals in the garden reproduced; thus, we need not be graphic here. One can certainly picture this easily if one is an experienced adult in the strong, almost overwhelming at times, physical attraction between sexes. The end of the matter is that the Serpent Adam could not do what he determined he needed to so do, in order to prove his godlike status, unless he could create life in perpetuity as a god through procreation with Eve, nor could he establish a standard of good and evil unless he could establish such over his wife looking to him for guidance, as well as any children they produced. So, the Serpent Adam conquers Eve into his mindset, whereby she complies in the sex act to create the life the Serpent needs as the proof he is as a god able to produce life under his standard and direction as to what is good and what is evil. Therefore, we have the race of humanity produced ever since in this same mindset, believing they are separate entities from God and can decide their own destiny as free-moral-agents in godlike status; hence, we have the apparent botched mess called “the existence of mankind,” we see prior to the release of this publication and the full truth.
Next on the Agenda - Religion
Along with this illusion of false perception comes all the religions of the world which, without exception, have a standard of good and evil and say it is up to the individual to choose one or the other with various rewards and penalties accordingly. The most prolific doctrines of course are those of an afterlife once one is physically dead, which in themselves create a place for clergy to officiate this whole debacle with fantasy remedies for failures as they interpret same. All of this is the result of the departure from God’s Sovereignty and meticulous control which eliminates such needs and remedies.
7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves aprons.
8 And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.
9 And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
13 And the Lord God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
That Was Not Your Approach and Demeanor
When You Initiated This Whole Thing
In the verses just quoted, we can see so many other scenarios in life for all of us. When we want something badly, we are in a demeanor and attitude of aggression – pushing our will and way to persuade others. However, when the plan comes crashing down we become the poor, little people we are, receiving the rewards for our foolishness, often looking to blame those that we swayed to our opinion in the first place. That is a simple way to look at this scenario here in Genesis 3. As the Serpent Adam, self-confident he was right, he convinces Eve to act with him; however, as Adam the man, he participates as player and receiver of the plan. When it fails, the man Adam blames Eve, and she in turn blames the Serpent Adam, not the man Adam, but rather the high and mighty, pushy Serpent Adam that talked her into it in the first place. Again, Adam is the same beast, but in two roles here in Genesis 3; one is the initiator of the problem and the other is the recipient of the problem. The mindset is the Dragon, the Serpent, the Devil, acting in Adam the man – the beast that understands nothing as he should or could if he had waited upon God as his Sovereign in due time to bring that understanding. In this fallen state, they or rather “he,” the Dragon and Beast – Adam, so acts, whereupon the last 6000 years is the result.
Condemnation – The Result of the Carnal Mind
Operating as if We Are a Separate Entity from God
Can only Leave Us under the Feeling of Guilt
Yet, both Adams are beasts without understanding in its fullness. The Serpent Adam having arrived at a status of confidence in that which he proposes, now suffers condemnation and guilt as Adam the man when he receives a result that he does not appreciate. This is the determinate end of every action and thought of humanity ever since Adam and Eve. If we do good as we perceive it and are rewarded accordingly we are encouraged and believe WE have done it. This still leaves us questioning our existence and certainly our relationship with God, believing He is outside of us and may or may not approve. If we do not feel guilty, we at least have some form of lack of confidence. If we do evil as we perceive it, we can fall even further to continuing same if it turns to a good outcome for us. Here we will come up with some argument to justify what works for us. In the Bible, it is called doing evil that good may come. In modern vocabulary it is called, “Machiavellianism” meaning the end justifies the means, no matter how dastardly, in order to arrive at that end.
It matters not how we start in the overall sense of the word and this scenario, because it is all actuated on a false premise and foundation, yes, the illusion: that we control our own destiny within the greater parameters of circumstances we cannot control.
14 And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
No Higher Purpose Just Basic Desires
In the mindset of the Dragon or self-determination, freewill, and choice, Adam the Serpent, no matter how lofty his aspirations and actions, because he perceives them as being HIS OWN works and ideas, cannot rise above his basic, bestial desires for personal pleasure and aggrandizement. Even those of us that are religious see themselves as reaping a reward or punishment for their actions in some afterlife. If they go to church and become extremely “good works” conscious, they do it for a better reward after they die or with some, just to make it past the hellfire they have been told awaits them if they do not “accept Christ” and other such statements. They do all and everything for self. Even if they do charitable things, it is these motivations just stated that color why they do them. They do not understand life or the First Two Commandments. They are sealed out and away by the very false mindset they believe is proper. They seek death, which is their false understanding that they believe is life, and that understanding flees from them, leaving them feeling guilty and confused. This is the inevitable end of the mindset of self-determination, freewill, and choice. Having no purpose of a higher calling, man crawls on his belly or lets those baser desires lead him in all he does; he eats dust or sees his life as coming to a termination without understanding. He comes from no purpose as he understands it, lives his life without purpose except to please his bestial lusts, and then returns to oblivion or the dust from whence he came as stated later in verse 19. He is cursed above the animals of lesser order for they are not conscious of any higher purpose and have no motivations to aspire to greatness and deeper meaning to life. They simply feed their lust and instincts accordingly. However, man DOES sense there is something more to life than only those lusts, and yet, cannot rise above them in the final analysis; hence, our lot as humans not able to find God and arrive at a higher purpose, which we sense should be the case, we are cursed indeed above all other life forms and existence.
15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
Enmity between Mankind and God
The enmity has to be understood from all of the Word of God and not privately interpreted. The enmity here is not between man and woman as it may appear upon first glance, which indeed is true on a secondary basis. However, any enmity between man and woman is due to the primary enmity of which this is speaking and that is the enmity between mankind, or humanity, or the “seed” - progeny of man and woman which is the human race and their Creator, God, again as stated in Romans 8:7. The enmity between God and mankind bruises, or does damage to, or removes from proper supremacy in orientation, God, the Creator and head of all things, according to I Corinthians 11:3, putting Him, via our psyche or mindset, outside of His creation looking in, as if He is a separate entity and not in total control. As a result, this same enmity causes mankind, in the condition of relegating God outside looking in, to bruise or do damage to, or remove from proper respect, mankind’s neighbor. This extends to the whole creation (God’s Heel) under the rule and reign of man in his fallen condition and mindset. From our fellow mankind, down to the lesser animals and the environment, we decimate the planet earth in our current condition. The “heel,” being the lesser creation, is bruised under the “head” man, who has removed the true head, God, in first instance from His rightful position with mankind, thus making man the false head from which all creation suffers. One follows from the other. So, looking at this verse again with inserted designations we have:
15 And I (God) will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed (enmity between mankind and God); it (the enmity, which is man’s view of self-determination, a false view and understanding called also “death”) shall bruise (displace or falsely relegate to a lower position, as if not in control and Sovereign) thy (man’s) head (God, thus placing man in charge of his own destiny per man’s false understanding), and (additionally as a consequence) thou (mankind) shalt bruise (relegate to a place of lack of respect, mistreating) his (God’s) heel (lesser creation ordained to be under man’s rule).
The Remedy or Cure
Again, we see the remedy to this resides with the proper understanding of the First Two or the Greatest Commandments upon which all the Law and the Prophets hinge and which understanding is behind the First Two Seals, only seen and heard spiritually when opened by Messiah unto us. This places God as Sovereign and Head, and by so doing, the positive consequence follows in that we render proper respect to lesser creation under us.
16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
Chips from the Old Block
Because the Serpent Adam has so taken charge and produced the race of mankind in this mindset of putting God on the outside looking in, therefore relegating the rest of creation to suffer under man’s supervision and rule, mothers also suffer in trying to raise their children to adulthood while being short of what they, as mothers, need for the purpose of performing that task. This is not referring to the physical birth of a child out of the literal, female womb. This is in reference to the full development she tries to bring to that child in order to produce a mature adult, the full birth making one independent from one’s mother. In this endeavor, she looks to the stronger and naturally dominant male, her husband, where the best he can do is rule over her due to that strength, having no full, participatory knowledge and help. This real knowledge and therefore help, is the higher understanding which can only come from both the man and woman being in the good of the First Two Commandments and proper relationship with God, whereupon they have the foundation for proper development in themselves which can be passed on to their children.
17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
By simple deduction we can see and understand “the voice of thy (Adam’s) wife,” for which he is condemned for listening and hearing that voice, is not her physical words expressed, but rather the counsel and argument against God rendered to her from the Serpent Adam. She beguiled by him, then partakes. Adam the man then partakes from her. What he partook of, was the counsel of the Serpent Adam. In other words, the counsel of the Serpent Adam rendered to the man Adam from Eve, was the offering of herself as a sex partner to act in production of the species of mankind, within the mindset of the Serpent. The man Adam as created by and walking in harmony with God, succumbed to his alternate mindset, the Serpent Adam, to act with Eve as a man with a woman to bring forth mankind in Adam’s image and likeness which was not as of YET, in the fullness of the image and likeness of God. This is well witnessed in their firstborn son Cain who slew his brother Abel.
Literalism again and Its foolishness
The notion that thorns and thistles, which extends to house flies and mosquitos in some interpretations, will one day be eliminated and were part of the curse here in Genesis, is ludicrous. What this is speaking of, again, as in the terms of returning to dust, is metaphorically expressing that in the mindset of self-determination, freewill, and choice, relegating God to the outside looking in, will yield a lack of desirable results, even harmful ones. Man will continue to see everything he does is the work of his OWN hands and the sweat of his OWN brow with little purpose, except of a very temporary nature, in all he does. It means, in this false mindset, all our efforts are seen as just that – OUR EFFORTS and not part of God’s design and purpose yielding the blessing we all await when we put Him back in the position He indeed has. When THAT is the way we understand Him, THEN the curse will be lifted to bring in the “world to come” of which the Bible promises. Here, no doubt many things that are a plague and pestilence will be understood in the view of a remedy that comes from understanding God and working together with our neighbors in that harmony. So many things we do to eliminate a pressure upon ourselves in our current mindset only creates a hardship on others. The clear case in this mode of operation is removing people from their homes in Palestine just to try and fulfill one’s version of the return of Israel to the land. This is a point already well made in this publication, so we will move on.
Let Us Ascend and Sit in the Director’s Chair
Now the question is surely proper at this point, provided one has followed along with this entire publication including Sections 1-13: “In light of the fact that God controls all things as puppets on His strings, can we view this whole scenario from a different perspective?” The answer is certainly YES! Rather than seeing this as a fall from a position of perfection or innocence, we can view this from the Director’s chair, who is also the Author and Finisher of His Whole Grand Design. In Genesis 1 and 2 we have the Table of Contents of the Script and Book out of which the drama of life has been meticulously PREWRITTEN and operates, per that prewritten script even to the most meticulous details such as when that cell on the bottom of one’s foot dies or the next hair falls from one’s head. In that perspective, we can see that Adam was created as a beast on the same day as the beasts of the field on the 6th day. He was the most intelligent and designated to rule. Now that was about 6000 years ago. One need ask himself only one question that will open a floodgate of truth if he has followed with us so far.
The Question Is:
What if we are not at the end of that 6th day?
Well… that is the truth of the matter. Mankind in our first birth as natural men are not the finished product of God’s Purpose and Plan when He said: “Let us make man in our image and likeness.” There were those that did arrive to a measure of that fullness evidenced in their obedience to God and His Sovereignty such as Abel, Noah, Abraham in particular, and certainly Messiah. However, it was and is only Messiah that could reveal and bring to a spiritual birth - others beside himself. Those that went before as Sons of God were so by a direct revelation to them from God that was not transferable to others by hearing their voice of truth. It was only Messiah that could raise the dead or those of natural birth into a spiritual conception and new birth as Sons of God. Jesus states this plainly as:
Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone: but if it die, it brings forth much fruit.
It was not until his death, burial and resurrection that we have anymore Sons of God by spiritual procreation. The first one, after Messiah, was Peter, who in turn brought the truth that raised others on the Day of Pentecost. From there, we know it soon went back into the vault of mystery when the false prophets came forth in Jesus name saying he was the Messiah, but putting their slant, chiefly that of self-determination, freewill, and choice, back in the picture.
It is the end of the 6th day now upon us and the nation of Israel, as well as the world. We will soon hear the Words of Messiah again, however in full disclosure this time and without the ability to be shrouded in shortsighted concepts. There will be no parables to try and figure out. It will be plainly declared from which all men will hear and be raised from the dead by that truth, either confirming their faith or refuting it, in a manner that will then open the door for them to learn truth apart from their previous concepts now proven in error.
Until Then . . .
Returning now to Genesis 3:20-24
20 And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.
21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them.
22 And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever:
23 Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
Temporary Help for a Temporary Condition
Here we have the condition of man and his hope always held before him of deliverance while at the same time offered temporary help (called colloquially “religion”) within his current mindset down through history, until the final remedy comes in the end time now upon us. Adam names his wife Eve, the mother of all living; yet we know that she and all mankind have been dead spiritually ever since, hence the resurrection to what life really is, when hearing the Voice of Messiah and a declaration of full disclosure. Until that time, we have the help that mankind perceives they need, once they are contrite and under apparent guilt. Their nakedness, which was no problem to God, however, a problem to them, is given a solution. So, we see following the rest of history, that where man approaches God as he understands Him, he does so through having something to cover him that makes him acceptable to God, again within man’s own perception. Blood atonement under the Law of Moses and Christ’s own blood during the Age of Grace were also just a covering making one acceptable in their eyes to approach God, and additionally stated by God to be acceptable for that approach. However, this was not the sinless state, but rather a stage in eras of time and God’s dealing with man to bring him to the end of the 6th day now before us. In this condition of perceiving good and evil by our own interpretation and even by our interpretation of God’s very Words, we cannot partake of the tree of life.
The Mystery of Iniquity and the Man of Sin
As Seen in Israel and the Exodus from Egypt
This stage of the progression has been well covered in Section III of this publication and we will not restate that at this time, leaving one to reread that if necessary and then follow on here.
Moving to the Final Stage and Graduation
We must move past the earlier stages which are built upon an illusion that we control by self-determination, freewill, and choice as a separate entity apart from God, and fail constantly needing a covering for that nakedness or needing religion and ritual for conscience sake concerning of OUR failures as we perceive them. We must move to the sure foundation that God has been in it all to bring us to Son status with God as our Father. This is only in potential when we remain under blood atonement perceived to be necessary to cover our sinful state, within our childlike, unenlightened perception. This applies as well to ANY form and fashion of any religion that purports to make our unacceptable state as we view it, thus acceptable once completing said regimen, confession, conversion, etc. as our perceived remedy. Only upon receiving God’s mindset or the Holy Spirit can we pass from death unto life in its fullness. That happened in preview of the finale when Christ came the First Time, and specifically on the Day of Pentecost. It will happen again in all of creation consequent to the finishing and Confirmation of the Covenant 70th Week of Daniel and those events that are subsequent to bring Israel under its proper government of Messiah. Until then, the morass of theological opinion and religion remains. The way to the tree of life is blocked by God’s Messengers and the Word they carry being misunderstood and misinterpreted in the hands of false messengers. This brings us back to our main consideration of Revelation 12:7, the contest and battle raging between these two entities:
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he hath but a short time.
When Did This Ousting Actually Happen?
This war came to the point of defeat of the Dragon and his messengers in heaven, BUT NOT ON THE EARTH, when the “time times and the dividing of time” of Daniel 7:24-27 was fulfilled, which is the “time, times and a half” of Daniel 12:7 after which the power to defeat the enemy is scattered or broadcast to the holy people. Once the 70th Week is fulfilled by Messiah there can be no more accusation of the brethren by the Dragon. In other words, once the truth of the Everlasting Gospel is understood, one cannot be accused because we are not the doer of anything. God is that “doer” within all men and all things. Once one is in the value of that revelation, which IS the power of the holy people, the Dragon that accuses is cast out of heaven, or the place of being correct and absolute in the seat of one’s understanding. He is exposed as being smoke and mirrors and not reality. His messengers are likewise proven to be the carries of lies, exposed as such by the full truth. This was accomplished as a finished fact once the 70th Week was fulfilled, and the blessing ensued at the end of the 1335 days of Daniel 12:12 with Messiah. It is this revelation that cleanses the sanctuary of the holy people’s strength, ousting any accusation, as well as the accuser that brings those accusations, by virtue of accepting God as Sovereignly in control of all things. This is the only permanent remover of guilt and therefore the sin that brings guilt under the false understanding that we are doing anything. As long as “we do,” we are guilty and sinners, either by the Law of Moses or by simple conscience that accuses or excuses by its own standard. This standard can only exist as long as we exist as alive in the flesh or operating as if we do whatever, leaving God as a power and entity outside of us. Once we see it is God that operates in all to will and do His good pleasure, there is no sin and therefore no guilt. The Law of Moses is fulfilled as well as the Law of any type that brings guilt, because we perceive by a clear understanding that we are God, or God’s Sons operating by Him in us.
That which was from the beginning
This is where Adam did not arrive. This is the original faith that Abraham had. When Israel left Egypt, this was that to which they were to be introduced, and it was written in the Two Greatest Commandments on the original two stone tables. Once they were broken, the Law of Moses came and has been finished as a dispensational dealing of God with man, when Messiah finished the Covenant 70th Week of Daniel 9 confirming that Covenant whereby we can enter the mindset of life and truth directly through Messiah and receiving his view which is God’s view of all things – the Holy Spirit.
Second Verse, same as the First, but NOT until . . .
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
That revelation came forth briefly in the First Resurrection, with only the First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week fulfilled and was called “receiving the Holy Spirit.” It is revealed again in finality once the 70th Week is completed as to its Last Half. From there Satan is cast out of heaven as a matter of fact. However, and here is the big “however;” it is only realized by Israel national, upon their recognition of Messiah in proper government administered over them LITERALLY in the Holy Land - “the Earth.” It is from this occurrence we are promised the release of this power to all, for the purpose of individual deliverance in each person. In other words, the battle still rages on earth between the rivers of the Holy Land, the Nile and Euphrates, centering on the Holy Mount in Jerusalem as the final factor whereby blessing is released to the world. As long as the rest of the Prophets’ statements, as to national Israel and its reception of Messiah as their LITERAL government, remain in question, there will be no release to the world at large of all that is given in this publication. As we have pointed out, this is the emphasis of Revelation 15:8, that no one can enter the temple or receive full understanding, until the completion of the 7 Trumpet / Plagues. We do not discount the possibility, as with Christ and his first disciples, of some entering to be part of the administration under Messiah when it is released. However, so far, it is limited to Michael the Great Prince and the author of these pages, with full Bible support and intelligence until Israel repents. When they are slain and cut off from the Holy Mount and their religious orientation does not deliver them, THEN they will perceive their need. Once they receive Messiah, THEN the world will be slain in its religious views and ideas that will not deliver them as well and also perceive their need.
The Remnant of the Woman’s Seed
Can only be seen in Messiah until . . .
The Seed with which the Dragon makes war, between the rivers of the Holy Land, is solely seen in Messiah. It is solely Messiah that keeps the commandments of God and has the same witness of truth that Jesus carried in the First Ministry of Messiah in 26-30 CE, or the Holy Spirit of truth, that will defeat the Dragon on earth as he has already done in the seat of understanding from God’s perspective or “in heaven.” Practically the deceptive operation of the negative party is understood as the Dragon in the Beast justified to the world by the False Prophet, falsely accomplishing the Promise of God in “profession.” With the fulfillment of verse 14 of Revelation 12, Satan can no longer claim a seat in heaven, due to his understanding being proven wrong there, by the full revelation of truth to and in Messiah consequent upon the fulfillment of Daniel’s 70th Week and the revelation of THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL and the knowledge of all Bible Mysteries.
The Battle on Earth – Messiah versus the Dragon
Therefore, it is upon earth Messiah and the triumvirate of deception have been in conflict over the Holy Land. This is, again, SINCE the “time, times and a half a time” or the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week was fulfilled. From that point, the battle on earth comes into view. The Zionists - the False Prophet, must be destroyed there so that Israel can accept the true Prophet Messiah and therefore stop supporting the Beast under the false premise that UNGA Resolution 181 brought the Israel of God out of the nations in resurrection to establish the Promise of the Law and the Prophets. Certainly, this was the proverbial white-wash put upon the whole scenario and additionally supported with Christianity in many quarters interpreting the Zionist move within their Christian ideas of prophetical fulfillment as well. This is the “flood cast out of the Dragon’s mouth.” This is the deception that would deceive even Messiah or the very “elect” if possible. However, it was not possible because the revelation that it was a deception that must be removed, as stated by Michael in the author’s presence as we left the Holy Land or the 1335th day of Daniel 12:12, was clear to Messiah, thus bringing the removal of that which deceives from that point. Here we saw how the 5th Trumpet / Plague sounded and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood via the Palestinian Intifada bringing later the 6th Trumpet / Plague in legislation for that removal. This was only preparation with a view to further sounding under that 6th Trumpet / Plague to accomplish the slaying of the 3rd of men, Israel under Zionists rule, and their aspirations for the third time according to Ezekiel 21:24-27. That slaying will quickly take us to the finale in the events of the 7th Trumpet / Plague as given in Section 13 of this publication. Let us now show the world-stage setting of this final scene as revealed in the understanding of Revelation 13 in Part B of this explanation of the Third rendering of the complete picture of Messiah’s First and Final Ministries now before us with the deliverance offered in Chapter 14:1-13, Part C, the final curtain to close this third presentation of the end time composed around the fulfillment of Daniel’s 70th Week.
