Before us now is the 7th and final presentation in the Book of Revelation of the Ministry of Messiah which, as far as timing and structure of events, is hinged directly to Daniel’s 70th Week. It is portrayed in different metaphors, signs, and symbols with concentration in Revelation 20 - 22 upon the finish of God’s plan bringing us from the First Ministry of Messiah in 26-30 CE to the Last Ministry of Messiah in 1984 – 1987 within Revelation 20 extending through the judgment upon Israel and the world ending in the Lake of Fire. It is here that all is revealed of that which is past and given in the accounts of the Law and Prophets (the books) of the old world and that order. Proving all guilty and lost if indeed it is OUR works, we are cast into the Lake of Fire which is the full understanding of truth that purges all false understanding. That process coming full circle with each individual, we at last must come to the proper understanding finding ourselves in the Book of Life. THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL is that understanding which eliminates the illusion that we are doing anything or are separate entities operating by free will or self-destiny. The purge complete, reveals God and what He has done which is perfect within His Purpose.
In Revelation 21, we have the supreme negative presented in Revelation 20 reversed to the positive and end of God’s purpose producing the Lamb’s wife, which is Israel redeemed and purified as the finish product of God’s affection, joined by the nations walking in the enlightenment broadcast and beaming from Jerusalem established in truth. This plan being finished in the broad spectrum with Israel and the nations, Revelation 22 extends to the individual, “whosoever,” the waters of life as everyone must be linked with God to the point that no one shall say “know the Lord,” for all shall know him from the least to the greatest, as we have stressed according to Jeremiah 31:34, Zephaniah 3:9, and Zechariah 14:9.
Revelation 20 is divided by the Ministry of Messiah as follows:
1. Verses 1 – 6: The First Ministry of Messiah in 26-30 CE, the witness of the Apostles ending in 70 CE, with the final witness in John’s writings and the Book of Revelation around 100 CE, this time from 30 CE until 1984 was given to the Gentiles under the Age of Grace as access to them to the Promise of the Holy Spirit contingent upon Christ’s rejection by the nation of Israel. Deception in the Holy Land is removed in 70 CE, which is the meaning of Satan / Dragon bound in the bottomless pit.
2. Verses 7 – 9a: The Second Ministry of Messiah is overshadowed by deception in the Holy Land. Satan / Dragon is loosed and returns establishing the affront and attack upon Messiah and truth before and during the “little season” which is the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week of 1984 – 1987. That deception being public via UNGA Resolution 181 in 1947, it was acted upon by the Zionist incursion into the Holy Land in 1948 without Messiah, the necessary factor for any proper exodus to the land according to Jeremiah 23:1-8. They, still in their whoredom with the kings of the earth as depicted in Ezekiel 23, were empowered by the UN for this 1948 move by UN Resolution 181 of November 29, 1947. They confiscated the West Bank, Gaza, Jerusalem, and Holy / Temple Mount under Zionist control in 1967; this was a military and political move of Zionists that was not sanctioned by the UN. The move of Zionists in league with Revived Rome / UN is viewed in Revelation 20:7-9a as all nations gathered, via the deception, to come against the truth represented in the “beloved city” and the “camp of the saints,” those set apart down through the ages that have served God in understanding of His Sovereignty called also “the faith of Abraham,” the remnant that have held faithfully to the Law and the Prophets awaiting Messiah.
3. Verses 9b – 15: Displays “The Last End of the Indignation” against Israel to convert her to Messiah and proper government contingent upon the judgment initiated after the “time times and the dividing of time” of Daniel 7:24-27 and the full 70th Week of Daniel 9 is completed. This judgment, once Israel is in acceptance of Messiah and establishes proper government, is then turned upon the world converting it, in time, to that same rule. This is the end in view accomplished by casting all parties into the Word of God which is the Lake of Fire – the clear understanding of the Word of God declared through proper interpretation according to Zechariah 13:8-9, Psalms 50:3, 104:4, Isaiah 30:17-30, 66:15-18, Ezekiel 38-39, I Corinthians 3:11-15, Hebrews 12:29, and II Peter 3:5-13, which are previous scriptures testifying to the same thing as given in the proper understanding of Revelation 20:9-15. These scriptures reveal God’s purpose to conform the world to the understanding within that plan, whereby they then walk, live, and proceed forward therein, so finishing all that is involved in the Resurrection and the Redemption. It is thereby, we enter the metaphors of Revelation 21-22 describing the positive end of all that has gone before bringing creation and mankind into the 7th day and God’s rest in a finished work.
1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand (Messiah and his Message of Truth).
2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan (As presented in Daniel 30b-35 Messiah and the Apostles exposed the league of Zionists with Rome preaching the Kingdom of God through Messiah for 40 years to no avail to convert the nation to proper government and the Sovereignty of God),
and bound him a thousand years (After 40 years of the Apostles Ministry, the judgment fall against this league and control of Jerusalem. The city is destroyed with the Temple, thus removing the ability to deceive the world that the Kingdom of God promised Israel by the Law and the Prophets was this league between Rome and the Zionists of that day.),
3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season (This destruction of Jerusalem removing the ability to deceive was during the undetermined Seven Times more judgment of Leviticus 26:18-39, the bottomless pit, with no understood end, not even to Messiah and the Apostles, as this point in history.).
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded (This is not a literal decapitation, but rather they lost their previous understanding or mindset which they reckoned as dead and buried, so that they could gain the understanding under the headship of Messiah) for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands (This the remnant down through the ages that were obedient to God’s messengers and waited for Messiah, trusting in God’s Sovereignty and not in self-destiny. Some of these are listed in the Book of Hebrews, Chapter 11. During the Time of the Apostles they were those subject to the truth accepting Messiah and received the Holy Spirit identified as the remnant in Revelation 7 and Ephesians 2:1-10
and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years (This is translated from Strong’s 5507 “a plural of uncertain affinity.” This is the Age of Grace where according to Hebrews 1 Christ reigned from heaven inaugurated by the time of the Apostles and those that did not accept the league with Rome and the Zionists, but preached concerning Messiah and his imminent return to establish the Kingdom on Earth according to the proper method within the Law and the Prophets at the end time when all enemies will be made subject to that reign and Everlasting Kingdom).
5 But the rest of the dead (This is the spiritually dead via their first natural birth under the mindset of self-destiny) lived not again (Once the Apostles physically passed on there were none raised to spiritual life via the understanding of Messiah within them) until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection (The first resurrection consisted of the remnant of Israel represented as the 144,000 in Revelation 7 followed by Gentiles during the time of the Apostles that responded to the Ministry of the Apostle Paul represented in Ephesians 2:1-10. The false apostles of II Corinthians 11 soon took preeminence taking this age into the perilous times of the last days according to II Timothy 3.)
6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years (The remnant of Israel and any Gentiles that were raised in the first resurrection under Messiah and the Apostles Ministry, having already been raised into proper understanding which is life, will not be ‘hurt’ or affected by the final resurrection when Messiah returns due to having what he brings, already done and effected in them).
Key in Possession – Pit Not Opened
It is paramount to keep clear that Revelation 20 is a repeat rendering of the Messiah Ministry, and as we have stated above; it is the 7th time this is represented in the Book of Revelation. We saw in the first rendition from Revelation 1 through 10 inclusive, and specifically in Revelation 9 with the sounding of the 5th Trumpet / Plague, that the pit was opened bringing the judgment. We found that this was the metaphor understood as Messiah coming to fulfill the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week after which, on the 1335th day / December 3, 1987, he left the Holy Land calling for and awaiting judgment to remove the deception. The end or bottom of the pit was determined at that time to be March 18, 1984 ending the Seven Times of the Gentiles mandated as a judgment upon Israel beginning March 18, 537 BCE according to Leviticus 26:18-39. The “opening of the bottomless pit” was effectuated by the return of Messiah terminating the time-period of 2520 years. Once revealed, this left it no longer as an undetermined timing, or “bottomless,” as it had been before the “key,” given solely to the Son David, brought that revelation and opening. However, prior to that opening in 1987, in 26 – 30 CE, the one ordained to have that key in possession brought the revelation that would withstand the deception and seal it in the bottomless pit until a future date for that deception to appear again. The judgment was rendered, upon Israel’s national rejection of that First Messiah Ministry, in the 1st through 4th Trumpet / Plagues which occurred in 66 – 72 CE, epitomized in the destruction and loss of the Temple and Jerusalem in 70 CE, as we have revealed in Sections 10 – 13. This removed the deception to the nations as well; there was no longer a projection and façade of blessing in Jerusalem purporting to be the Israel of God. As we have stated earlier concerning Revelation 17:11, this was the beast that “was” or existed before 70 CE, and “is not” or removed and destroyed in 70 CE during John’s lifetime prior to around 100 CE when he was writing the Book of Revelation. That same scenario is the metaphor here in Revelation 20, but stated as “sealed in the bottomless pit” or the undetermined timing, instead of saying “is not.”
In other words, the deception was removed at a point in time within the Seven Times of the Gentiles which had no calculable and clearly discernable end. That understanding was still sealed away under the 5th Seal and not even known to Jesus Christ and consequently his Apostles. The deception remained removed and “bound” during that period of time within its undetermined end, the bottomless pit, until it resurfaced or “ascended” out of the undetermined timing, the bottomless pit, and established the deception again for the final contest with Messiah in the end time. The timing is no longer undetermined and becomes clear and relevant with scriptural backing and foundation upon Messiah being present and completing the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week. Once the full 70th Week was fulfilled, the key to this undetermined time behind the 5th Seal was revealed making the timing of the Times of the Gentiles indeed DETERMINED. We, again, give Daniel 9:24, which specifies what will be granted upon that 70th Week being confirmed and fulfilled by Messiah.
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.
Seal Up the Vision and Prophecy
The truth of the 70 Weeks, how it would transpire, and the events afterward to drive Israel to Messiah and the proper government of God’s Sovereignty, bringing Israel’s redemption back to the original espousal to God she aborted under Moses when worshipping the Golden Calf, is SEALED UP in Messiah from the point the 70th Week is finished. In order for any man, and specifically Daniel’s people Israel, to be delivered and redeemed they must accept Messiah and be taught by him to come to proper understanding. A major, if not THE major, factor missing to understand God’s truth, prophecy, and insight into Daniel’s vision, has been the opening of the bottomless pit revealing the exact time to end the Times of the Gentiles via the Coming of Messiah. This is the promised end: The most Holy anointed King over Israel and Prince under the King Almighty – God as the positive end and result of the Last End of the Indignation – the final judgment upon Israel bringing her national repentance and deliverance in Messiah.
In just a few lines below this point in our publication, we will repeat verbatim, with some additions, a portion of an earlier section where the language concerning 30 CE through 1984 is addressed. We do so, for the purpose of a reminder and clarification at this time, while specifically dealing with Revelation 20 due to its much-misinterpreted verses through the ranks of Dispensationalism that put this portion of scripture off in some far-future, literal thousand years. We state again that the undetermined timing was from 537 BCE to 1984 CE which was a “plural of uncertain affinity” translated as “thousand.” It was unknown or uncertain until made known or certain removing the bottomless factor after December 3, 1987. The blessing came at this time to the blessed one revealing that key to understanding all Bible prophecy and timings, which are hinged directly to it. WITHIN the greater timing of the Seven Times of the Gentiles from 537 BCE through 1984, the bottomless pit, there is the Age of Grace which ran from 30 CE, Christ’s rejection by Israel, unto 1984 being terminated by the secret return of Messiah as well.
The Way, the Truth, and the Life
This knowledge, understanding, and wisdom within the Mystery of God is retained in Messiah solely and not within the collective body of Israel. It is sealed up in him and completed after December 3, 1987, the 1335th day. It can only be released by the way of Israel receiving his authority from which the truth can be released and understood. It is released in the message THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL augmented by BABYLON HAS FALLEN that follows with it. These are the message sounded in the 7th Trumpet / Plague that come forth publicly from the events within that 7th Trumpet / Plague. The main one is the great city of Jerusalem being divided into three parts. Israel already having it divided into two parts according to Zechariah 14:1-2 in the finish of the 6th Trumpet / Plague of Revelation 9:12-21 and 16:12-16 rallies to Messiah and his ownership as the legitimate heir of King David, anointing Messiah to his rightful place in leadership according to Ezekiel 21:24-27, “he whose right it is.”
Wound unto Death that Is Healed
The Binding and Loosing of the Dragon
In summary, Revelation 20 begins with the Roman Empire in league with Zionists at the time of Messiah in 30 CE. This ability to deceive, by the deception portrayed to the world in the prosperity beginning with predominantly Herod the Great and his successors, was wounded unto death in 70 CE thus ending the deception and binding Satan within the undetermined timing, still bottomless and unknown as to its end, at that point in history. Satan was loosed and the deception returned when Rome in league with the Zionists was healed by coming back as Revived Rome / UN dominating the ten Arab countries in 1948 /1967 CE with the formation of the Zionist State in league with the United Nations to establish itself in the land again. It subdued three kings or occupied as the spoils of the 1967 war, portions of Syria, Jordan, and Egypt called the West Bank territories and Gaza. This fulfilled the negative prophecy of Daniel 7:24-25 in order to so exist as the image of democracy upheld chiefly by its mentor state the United States, many of its citizens being of dual citizenship in both countries.
That It is the Kingdom of God Over Israel for Blessing
The epitome of the deception lies in their control of the Holy / Temple Mount and East Jerusalem at the time of the Sixth head - Old Rome, and the time of the Seventh – Revived Rome / UN, this also being established by the 1967 Six-Day-War according to Daniel 11:36-45 with their palace or stronghold being verified in the “glorious holy mountain.” It is the league between the foreign power composed of Zionists with the Nations for a façade of deliverance, rather than Israel in acceptance of true government under Messiah. This is the essentials of the Mystery of Iniquity whereby, Satan / the Devil / the Dragon was in deception of the world during the First Ministry of Messiah, First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week from 26-30 CE and remained until 70 CE.
Satan / Dragon / Serpent Is Bound and Cannot Deceive
That It is the Kingdom of God Over Israel for Blessing
Losing the Holy Mount and rule over the Holy Land under Zionists in the league with the Roman Empire in 70 CE, the deception was removed, or metaphorically Satan / the Devil / the Dragon was bound.
Satan / Dragon / Serpent Is Loose and Deceives AGAIN
That It is the Kingdom of God Over Israel for Blessing
That league was established AGAIN with Revived Rome / UN in 1948 where the Zionists took control of the Holy Mount and rule over the Holy Land in 1967, thus standing in the critical time-period of the Last of Half of Daniel’s 70th Week from 1984 to 1987 (the little season), and Final Ministry under the Law of Moses confirming that Covenant of God with Israel. This is directly the result of the Dragon making an unauthorized ascent out of the unknown timing, the bottomless pit, BEFORE its authorized end. Therefore, the deception is THEN healed and reestablished, or metaphorically Satan is loosed for the final conflict as depicted in Revelation 20. Unlike the Roman Empire of 70 CE at this final conflict, the entire the world, including the Far East, Africa, North and South America, Asia, indeed every remote entity from the four corners of the earth surrounding Jerusalem, via their representation in the UN, is involved in this final affront to truth and the holy city.
Where Preterists – Amillennialists
Are Correct and Dispensationalists Are Wrong
There is no 1000-year reign of Christ coming at his appearing the Second Time; Dispensationalists are dead wrong. The “1000-year reign of Christ,” in truth, is a translation more properly rendered from the Greek according to Strong’s 5507 meaning “plural of uncertain affinity.” Therefore, giving credit to the Preterist’s view against Dispensational error, this is the time between the First and Second Ministries of Messiah. This is why it says that those in the First Resurrection, correctly understood from the Law and the Prophets as a raising to full truth and enlightenment, are not hurt or not affected by the second death, as we made clear in interpretation earlier and further support below.
One Raised to Life in the First Resurrection
The Other Raised to Condemnation in the Second
And Full / Final Resurrection.
The first death was at the time of Messiah’s first ministry in 26-30 CE. Everyone is dead by having an understanding they think is life when it is not. When one hears and understands truth, he is slain as to his old mindset realizing it is immature, shortsighted, and in need of higher knowledge. This occurred as the first death, bringing one to realize the condition in which they actually were, which yielded, upon learning that and hearing the truth from Messiah, the First Resurrection at that time. Unlike the final resurrection, in the First Resurrection Messiah had never come prior to 26-30 CE to fulfill the 70th Week of Daniel nor been rejected. When he did indeed come the first time we had two groups:
1) There were those that waited upon the Messiah and looked for him to redeem Israel and bring the blessing. They are called “the remnant” as we have given this group clarity previously in our explanation of Daniel 11 and are part of those in Daniel 12:1-4 “the wise.” When Messiah Ministered first by introduction through John the Baptist and then personally followed on until his crucifixion and rejection by the nation or majority of Israel, the remnant, seen in such examples as Simeon and Anna, the shepherds, as well as the Apostles, the 120 in the upper room in Acts 2, and others all represented in Revelation 7 within the symbolic number of 144,000, received the Messiah and rose from a dead understanding under the Law, unto life by hearing or understanding truth spoken at that time in that First Ministry. They first received The Messenger of the Covenant that God had sent according to Malachi 3:1-2, and then understood his message which raised them to life out of their dead condition under the Law. This understanding went forth in its purity to the Gentiles under Paul’s Ministry according to Romans 9-11 and Ephesians 2 where some also rose to life. Shortly thereafter, as well witnessed in the Book of Acts and the Letters of the Apostles, the false prophets and apostles won the day with a deceptive message which has sealed everyone out of truth under a lie by the time of the Second Ministry of Messiah.
2) The second group at Messiah’s First Ministry, the Zionists or Pharisees, thought they had life in the Law of Moses and their oral-Torah traditions derived around it per their mindset. They had evolved in that mindset to think they were a collective messiah only awaiting a physical entity called “Messiah” to capped off and join their cabal and rule. Christ came and ministered and by his voice of truth some rose out of spiritual death to life as indicated by John 5:24-25. However, they, for the most part, rejected the Messenger or Messiah and did not rise and remained dead, passing on their dead understanding to this day in their descendants.
By the time we come to the Second Ministry of Messiah, here at the end time, the second group is all that remains. There will be no one that comes out of a shortsighted view to higher truth furthering their understanding unto resurrection to full life as occurred at the time of Jesus Christ and the Apostles. The only way anyone can rise in the end time will be by first being proved in error of their current understanding and not just short of truth and waiting further enlightenment as the remnant so existed and waited in Messiah’s First Ministry.
At the full and final resurrection, Jews, together with the Gentile world, will all be raised to condemnation because they all stand in the time when Messiah comes the Second Time proving all are in doctrinal error and erroneous beliefs, fantasies, and lies due to rejecting Messiah one way or the other. The Jews have done so in name and doctrine, and the Gentiles in doctrine while retaining the name under a deceptive message which Paul called another gospel and not the truth that Paul gave. It is hence that all the world is found guilty before God in the end time, and there is no resurrection straight into life as was experienced when Messiah was received and his voice was personally present, and understood in 30 CE. All now assume they know truth: Jews believing Jesus was a false prophet, and believing they have life within their traditions extending to such things as the Kabbalah / Zohar whereby they claim they can enter the presence of God etc., as well as Gentiles that think they have the Spirit of God already and all they await is a new physical body to dwell in some ethereal, literal place called heaven and other such fantasies.
The Evil Fruit Proves the Evil Root
It is due to this condition, void of full truth yet thinking they have such, that both Jews and Gentiles claiming allegiance to the Promise of God through Abraham, have succumb to the deception establishing the Zionist State empowered by Revived Rome / UN. This is not only a repeat of the same league present at the time of Jesus Christ, but is also, at this juncture in time, at its pinnacle and ready for destruction here in the final Ministry of Messiah according to Ezekiel 14:1-11 and II Thessalonians 2as we write these pages in this publication BABYLON HAS FALLEN. Stated in another way: if they had truth, they would have rejected the lie.
The Two – Way Swinging Door
Life Proper, Requires Death to What WAS
Considered Life Before True Life Can be Imparted
Hearing truth is what “kills” by learning what we are believing, as truth, is short and therefore dead, even as we are dead by believing it. The full truth coming to us slays us in our old mindset and raises us in Christ’s life or his Mind being put within us. Now this is what happened during 26-30 CE. At that time, there where those that were ready and awaiting the Messiah and looked for him and received him, being dead in trespasses and sins under the Law, but following as much truth as was given at that time to the faithful remnant. The faithful remnant did not need to have their old understanding proven in ERROR and totally removed. Rather, they were dead in the Law lacking higher understanding as a legitimate condition in the progression of time since Moses. This was the first death and the First Resurrection; they walked from a child’s understanding held in bondage to the Law of Moses, into the fulfillment of the Law in them whereby the Law was written upon their hearts according to John 5:24-25.
As presented in John 5:28-29, this would occur again, but to everyone and not just the remnant that responded at the time of Christ’s first ministry. Not knowing when Christ would return and bring that final resurrection, John, in Revelation 20 when he wrote at that time, wrote as if this would occur during his lifetime and the lifetime of others that were already raised in the first resurrection. Therefore, John, as well as Jesus dictating the Book of Revelation to John, exempted those in the first resurrection from an effect, any power, and “hurt” that the Second Resurrection and Second Death would bring, because they already had the experience. They were just waiting for the Second Coming to effectuate, what they already had, upon everyone else.
John 5:24-25 followed directly by John 5:28-29
24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that hears my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
. . .
28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
It Is About the Spiritually Dead
And Not the Literally Dead
Neither physical death nor a physical resurrection is that to which the Bible refers when it says: “in Adam all die, even in Christ shall all be made alive,” according to I Corinthians 15:22. Adam ate of the fruit and did not physically die until 930 years later; yet, it says the day he did eat he would die. This is spiritual death. In the First Resurrection of Christ’s First Ministry, the dead heard the Voice of the Son of God and lived or were raised from the dead in John 5:24-25. Those that were raised at that time would not be hurt of spiritual death in the final resurrection. The final resurrection is represented in view of Christ’s previous rejection and the fact that those that THINK they are spiritually alive, within their current understanding, are actually dead and just do not know it, or stated in another way – they are dead spiritually while they physically live. When the truth in its pure form comes forth, without any ability to be turned and twisted into a deception, as it definitely was by the false apostles after Christ and the original Apostles left the scene, that final presentation will prove every other understanding is false and error - meaning everyone is dead and under an erroneous view and belief they THINK is life. Therefore, they are killed, slain, and proven dead, wrong and in error in their current understanding apart from full truth, which truth brings spiritual life. The harsh and alarming fact of the matter, in the Second and Full Resurrection of the end time, all will be raised to damnation / condemnation or have revealed to them that they are immature, short of truth, and in abject error, yet believing until that point that they had life and truth when they did not.
The Key Point of Distinction
Not Recognized Due to Short-sighted Teaching
Jesus in both John 5:24-25 and 28-29 is addressing the TOTAL resurrection from Daniel 12:1-7. Due to the split 70th Week, and Messiah rejected so that the Gentiles could have access to the same promise as Israel of the Holy Spirit, and that time for the finish of 70th Week not being known at that point in history when they were speaking and writing, Jesus and the Apostles constantly spoke of this time of Christ’s Ministry being the resurrection in its inception right then during their lifetime, with the promise of the finality of the resurrection in Messiah’s return. This return, ending the Times of the Gentiles and beginning the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week, was always presented as imminent, and to occur at any time, even the next moment or day when people would not expect it; or, Messiah would come as a “thief in the night.” Therefore, the resurrection to life, which was straight from an understanding under the Law of Moses to an understanding under Messiah present, is the meaning of “raised to eternal life,” and solely applies to the First Resurrection under the Voice of the Son of God and that Voice declared under his Apostles. It does not and will not apply in the Second or Full Resurrection in the end time; this is the KEY POINT!!! However, Jesus and the Apostles expected full resurrection of Daniel 12:1-7, from which he spoke in John 5, to also occur within their lifetime and tempered all of their comments and teaching around this factor.
In other words, the final message will show all are dead, in a false understanding that they believe is really truth and life. When coming to that awareness, they are then slain or realize they are dead, and only in Messiah, PROPERLY UNDERSTOOD, will they come alive. Now those that received that understanding, when Messiah first ministered, passed from a legitimate position under the Law and departed from nothing for which they needed to be condemned. They then came into higher understanding. If they were still physically present and biologically alive when Messiah returned completing Daniel’s 70th Week, which again they expected, they would not be affected or “hurt” because they had already been raised to life under Messiah’s First Ministry.
Two Groups in the First Resurrection
But Only One in the Final Resurrection
Those raised out of the Law and death, needing to be condemned for nothing because they awaited Messiah correctly, rose to new life and understanding directly. They were raised purely straight to life without condemnation, being the remnant dead under the Law, but not in the condition of the Scribes and Pharisees thinking that had life already. The remnant was those such as in Luke 2, Simeon and Anna and others that looked-for salvation in Israel through waiting on God and His timing to bring Messiah. Therefore, they are presented by Jesus, the Apostles that wrote, and here by John as being unaffected or “not hurt” by the second sounding of full truth in the end time which is the second death or second time the full truth comes forth establishing that all ARE dead spiritually. The difference in the second sounding is that everyone is under condemnation due to rejecting Messiah in person or by doctrine, taking the Mark of the Beast by supporting the lie and error of deception in the Holy Land. At this final sounding of truth, one must take his place as in error, under condemnation as a result and therefore slain, killed, and dead spiritually. In this condition admitted and realized, one dies to his previous understanding in order to be able to enter the new understanding and life declared by Michael the Great Prince and his voice, the Voice of the Chief Messenger or Archangel. This is the same as the metaphor of being born again in John 3. Born of water or the first, natural, and physical birth leaves one born dead requiring that he comes to being born of the Spirit, which is the spiritual birth or being born again into a TRUE spiritual existence. Again, those awaiting Messiah went from death to life directly in 30 CE; those thinking they have it right and are deceived will go first to condemnation, proving their dead condition, and THEN and ONLY THEN, will they rise to the same condition of life as Messiah and the Apostles so had and have. During the First Ministry, the supreme example, of one that was raised to condemnation first and then raised to life in a relearning of truth correctly is Saul of Tarsus, proven wrong and slain in Acts 9 when hearing the Voice of the Son of God; he was condemned in his spirit and then was later brought to understanding via revealed truth.
Paul’s Argument Revisited
Now perhaps the reader can better understand what the Apostle Paul was saying in Romans and all of his epistles. This is THE RESURRECTION. There is no other. It is rising to spiritual life and understanding. Those that think they have it, DO NOT; they will proved dead in an erroneous mindset and understanding, thus being killed or slain by the truth and THEN raised again in new life, at this time in THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, and augmented further by this larger presentation BABYLON HAS FALLEN. By comparing Isaiah 29 which presents the judgment of Ariel, another connotation for Jerusalem, closely with Daniel 12:1-7 which both speak of the resurrection in its totality at the end time, and comparing that further with John 5:24, all the way to verse 29, one will find this is this truth of the matter.
Have It? You Do Not!
Again, the problem, which has blocked that understanding, is that we believe we already have that of which these verses speak, when we do not. This causes one to think that the presentation in the New Testament is speaking of something future done to the physical body. Those preaching in the pulpits all believe this same way and thus, via their false message, all think they have the spiritual resurrection and all they await is some physical new body etc. How many times have we, that have lived since the invention of movies and television, based upon many old and new novels and stories, read or heard the words spoken, at the literal grave site of a supposed dead party in such productions pronounced by the character of the clergy, “in sure hope of the resurrection”? Of course, such referencing, in these productions and actually heard at any funeral we attend, is applied to the physical dead body of the deceased in question before us. Those with this view or one of its variations, which has brainwashed total humanity as of the beginning of the writing of this publication, WILL be hurt of the second death. Finding they are wrong and lost in childish fantasy and needing to grow up and mature, upon that awareness, they then must reckon themselves dead unto their old understanding, that old understanding being “death,” and rise in the new understanding which is life and truth. Now, one can certainly perceive why the Apostle Paul called such presentations and the deliverance posed within them “another gospel” and NOT what he preached.
Find It in the Law and the Prophets First
The word “grave” is seized upon by those that adhere to this shortsighted view as being literal graves; they therefore make a difference between John 5:24-25 versus John 5:28-29. Notice the Law and the Prophets in Ezekiel 36 and 37 make it quite clear this term means lost in the nations and raised out of that condition by coming into the Holy Land to learn and live, receiving the Spirit of God. Again, not studying the Word of the Old Testament, in order to understand what Christ, and later the Apostle Paul, meant by their terms, is the chief error of those taking authority over the Bible to interpret and then feed the laity these lies, by their supposed scholarly prowess. God has done this ultimately within the strong delusion to believe the lie of self-destiny, which is the mother and root of all consequent lies and false doctrines spawning out of the original concept of self-determination, freewill, and choice according to Ezekiel 14:1-11 from which Paul is chiefly speaking in II Thessalonians 2. It is time now to move to the next stage of His great plan, just as a child comes out of childhood ideas and stories to grow up and mature as a responsible Son or Daughter.
A Simple Summary and Example
Of the First and Second Resurrection
Once again, as has been our practice in other areas of this publication, we will give a simple example to illustrate this greater truth. If we are taught as literal children by our parents that mom and dad work for a living, making money, and thereby purchase the gifts we receive on special occasions, we may not fully understand what “work-money-purchase” mean as small children. When we mature or at some point in our development, we come to understand those terms and rise in intelligence; there is no condemnation as to the former understanding. It was just not understood where further enlightenment brought us to maturity. However, if we were taught that the tooth fairy, Santa Claus, etc. brought the gifts, then we are condemned in our understanding when higher and factual truth is given to us, being found in belief of lies and fantasies, where we have to reject the entire premise in order to then learn and accept the truth. The lies and falsehood are condemned and must be totally discarded so that we can even begin to learn correctly. This can be traumatic for some children, depending upon the level that the lies and fantasies were ingrained.
This is the exact same thing as the conditions of the First Resurrection versus the Second. Those in the First Resurrection came to a higher understanding and matured into Sons of God from truth undeveloped; case in point the Law fulfilled in Messiah and consequently the individual maturing to that understanding. Those in the Second have been taught fantasies and lies and will have to have those doctrines discarded to even begin to learn rightly. One can now see why the tribulation that ensues at this time in history will be so great, and such as never was since there was a nation, even as one can understand the trauma and mental anguish caused to a child under simple childhood illusions. Let us now leave this discussion and move forward in this portion of Revelation 20 into Ezekiel 38-39 which is the Law and Prophets foundational scripture for exactly what is stated in our main passage before us.
Prelude to the Final Resurrection
There Is No Positive Party Physically Alive
All Are Spiritually Dead and Must be First Judged,
Slain – Killed – Proven Dead and THEN Resurrected
8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city:
UNGA Resolution 181: Ezekiel 38 – 39
It is imperative to keep in mind that the Zionist move is not considered the actions of the Israel of God. As we have stated a number of times in this publication, it is nowhere addressed as anything but a negative, Gentile in nature, and rebellion against God. Daniel 7 presents it as the “little horn,” Daniel 8 as the “king of fierce countenance,” Daniel 11 as the “king that does according to his own will,” Revelation 9 as “Abaddon” and “Apollyon,” Revelation 13 as “the Beast Out of the Earth,” operating via the authority of the Beast Out of the Sea, Revelation 16 as the principle representation of the “False Prophet,” and lastly Revelation 17 and 18 as the female part of the relationship between the Harlot and the Beast called Great Babylon, which is Israel in whoredom and rebellion fornicating with the kings of the earth as stated in Ezekiel 23. Taking the headship of the Beast as her husband, she is in rejection of the Sovereign government of God under Messiah. Therefore, God views her as one with the Gentile nations that have illegally entered and “compassed” Jerusalem and the Holy Mount as well as the greater Holy Land. The epitome of this deception and assault is for a “little season,” after which the judgment of fire from heaven begins.
Looking at the world events that fulfill this scenario, we have UNGA Resolution 181 which illegally brought intrusion into the Holy Land of the Zionist entity in 1947 legislation which was acted upon by the Zionists in 1948 to establish the Zionist State. With direct respect to Jerusalem in truth and trespass thereof, in 1967 they took literal Jerusalem under their control and deception inclusive of the Holy Mount, in no way respected by God in any manner as a return to the land by the Jews or Israel. This is described from God’s view point as to its character in verses 7 – 9a above just quoted.
Coming Against, and Consequently Slain
Upon, the Mountains of Israel
The metaphor of Revelation 20:7-15 is considered in Ezekiel 38-39, which is the Law and the Prophets foundation for this scripture in Revelation 20, as coming against Israel in truth and specifically the Mountains of Israel. The “mountains of Israel” are the Law and the Prophets which determine obedience and disobedience thereto as given in the Torah in Leviticus 11:26-32 and Deuteronomy 27:1-13, as well as the Book of Joshua 8:30-35, and declared by Moses and then Joshua following Moses instruction when Joshua entered the land. The curses and blessings of the Law were declared upon the literal mountains of Ebal and Gerizim respectively within the physical land of Canaan given to Israel under Joshua. The nations in violation and league with Israel in the whoredom of Ezekiel 23, in coming into the Holy Land encompassing the beloved city in the manner of 1948 and 1967 fulfills this negative prophecy against them in Revelation 20 and Ezekiel 38-39. It is stated in Revelation 20 that it is for a “little season.”
The “Little Season” IS the Point of Major Violation
The Man of Sin Sitting in the Temple of God
Now here is where we must put this together with our explanations of Revelation 11 and 13. The Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week is where the Gentiles “tread under foot forty and two months” the holy city in Revelation 11:2 and stated as “power was given unto him (the Beast) to continue forty and two months,” in Revelation 13:5. Established in the authority of UNGA Resolution 181 in 1948, taking the Holy Mount and Jerusalem (the beloved city) in 1967, Revived Rome / UN and its league with the Zionist State is in illegal trespass beyond the 1984 end of the Seven Times of the Gentiles. It is sitting in the Temple-Time-Period of the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week professing that it is the fulfillment of the Promised Messiah manifesting the Israel of God in the Holy Land through a collective move of Zionists in league with Revived Rome / UN which is all empower, as stated in Revelation 13, by the Dragon. Again, it indeed was not what it professed, but rather the Man of Sin sitting in the temple or place of God, vicariously declaring that this blasphemous thing was God fulfilling His Word as proclaimed for centuries through the Law and the Prophets. This is that to which Paul pointed in II Thessalonians 2 fulfilling as well, Ezekiel 14:1-11 which brought Israel in unbelief, as the Zionist deviation and Machiavellian move, to its pinnacle. Once Daniel 7:24-27, the “time times and the dividing of time” / this “little season” passed, the judgment would then “sit” or ensue to bring it all crashing down when that “little season,” of 3 and ½ years was fulfilled by God’s true Messiah who then called for its removal as of December 3, 1987. Therefore, we have, at this point, come full circle back to that removal commencing with the 5th Trumpet / Plague moving onward to the end depicted now from Revelation 20:9b, whereby the “fire from heaven” / “judgment sit shall sit” / “Last End of the Indignation” is this process so entered as of that date and still ongoing as we write these pages awaiting the end of the burning and purification of Israel first and then extended to the nations bringing in the new heaven and earth of II Peter 3:10-13.
Burning and Burying: The Source Is Again Daniel 9:24
Within the Last and Confirmation Covenant 70th Week
The Seven Years and Seven Months of Ezekiel 39
The details and metaphors of Revelation 20:7 onward to finish the chapter are mirrored in Ezekiel 38-39. The Seven years to burn the implements of war and the Seven months to bury the dead at the close and aftermath of this scenario, we will show are indeed the 70th Week of Daniel 9 within which we have the spring Holy Days of the First through 3rd Month, Nisan-Iyar-Sivan, fulfilled at the end of the First Half of 3 and ½ years, as well as the fall Holy Days of the Seventh Month, Tishrei, fulfilled at the end of the Last Half of 3 and ½ years which comes after the 4th through the 6th Month, Tammuz, Av, and Elul . It is the truth that comes out of that 70th Week being confirmed and finished and those Seven months designated for High Holy Days and commemorations under the Law of Moses in Leviticus 23 being fulfilled by Messiah, that Ezekiel 39 displays the final act of God’s great production bringing first judgment and then blessing to Israel, and consequently extended to all nations “the heathen” or Gentile to also know the Lord.
7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison (UNGA Resolution 181 establishing the Zionist State in 1948 and taking control of the Holy Mount in 1967),
8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire (judgment of Daniel 7:24-27 sits, the Last End of the Indignation) came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them (Stone cut without hands, kingdom of Messiah, smashes image of Daniel 2).
10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever (The Beast - the political arena of violence, force, and deceit that rules in government, The False Prophet – the religion that falsely interprets God and His message thus supporting and justifying the Beast, and finally The Dragon – the mindset of self-destiny that operatives within the other two, . . . are all three relegated to the Word of God where they remain exposed in the finished 6000 year record “forever and ever,” henceforth showing the nature of existence under their control, and the torment that resulted within their framework and structure).
Politics and Religion First – Mindset Second:
Beast and False Prophet First – Dragon Second
The progression at the end is the reverse of the establishment of these entities from the beginning. We understand that Adam’s deviate mindset is the Serpent-Devil-Dragon. That mindset of self-determination, freewill, and choice, carried into the collective body of mankind, formed the political nations which are justified, to do as they do, by the religion. Therefore, as the stage comes to the final act these things are reversed and removed by the Word in revelation and proper interpretation. The religion is the False Prophet, which is the false projection as being God’s mind and approval of the machinations of the political world forming the nation, stated colloquially “God is on our-side.” The political nation is the Beast that performs with this approval. However, both are but the product of the real root / the Dragon or mindset and way of thinking within each individual making up or comprising that whole structure.
Their demise starts with the Big Picture and the events that bring the religion into suspicion and eventually proved it to be in error, having no authority or approval to speak for God whatsoever, yet falsely personifying it has that power. That suspicion and revelation that it is in error comes as the practical result of the political failure of any nation, and in the supreme example, Israel’s failure, existing as the Zionist State, to be delivered in the political realms when the other nations, the Revived Rome / UN turn upon her to bring about the removal of the Holy Mount and the division of Jerusalem in two parts destroying the Zionist dream and goal of a united capitol for their Zionist created state as we have presented from Zechariah 14:1-2. That failure exposes to them their deception perpetrated upon the world as indeed having, first of all and in its primary status, deceived Israel in their Zionist moves and efforts. Operating by approval of the False Prophet as seen in Ezekiel 14:1-11, which is a false interpretation of their own design imposed upon the Law and the Prophets as claimed in Daniel 8:23-25 via THEIR understanding of “dark sentences,” they have then come full circle to the whole scheme crashing down and unable to deliver them. This reveals they are indeed self-deceived and God has answered them up to this point to perpetuate that deception to their eventual negative demise. Hence when the politics (the Beast) fail to bring deliverance from perceived enemies and religion (the False Prophet) is proven faulty, they both are removed and discarded in the Lake of Fire – the clear understanding of the Law and the Prophets. The proper governmental leadership, the King of God’s choice according to Deuteronomy 17:14-20, replaces the political arena / the Beast. Simultaneously the proper Prophet of God’s approval according to Deuteronomy 18:9-22 replaces the religion / False Prophet. However, the mindset that brought these two entities, the Beast and the False Prophet, into existence is the Dragon. This entity can only be placed in the Lake of Fire, thus replacing the mindset of self-destiny / Dragon, with the mindset of the Sovereignty of God / Messiah becoming incarnate within us, by the individual coming to the proper Priest / Messiah according to Deuteronomy 17:9-13 and supremely Isaiah 22:14-25. For only he can intercede with teaching and understanding to cast out that Dragon of self-determination, thus bringing one the full truth appropriately, giving one the Spirit or Mindset of Messiah. We, with him, are THEN and ONLY THEN the recognized, by true Divine Bar-Mitzvah, Sons of God. All of these proper aspects, God’s Mindset / Spirit as the root present in the King-Prophet-Priest are within the Messiah, the anointed of God to stand for Israel, the children of Daniel’s people, in the end time, which is Michael the Great Prince according to Daniel 12:1-7 broadcasting the power to them to be indeed holy and the Israel of God.
11 And I saw a great white throne (the proper understanding of the Word of God via proper interpretation), and him (Messiah, the one with that proper understanding) that sat on it, from whose face the earth (carnal understanding as natural or bestial men, that which is of the earth or earthy) and the heaven (spiritual understanding professing to be truth but is however short of full disclosure with many fantasies and lies) fled away; and there was found no place for them (There is no explanation from any quarter other than Messiah; all other understandings are abandoned).
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened (The Law and the Prophets explained and interpreted properly by Messiah as revealed in the publication BABYLON HAS FALLEN): and another book was opened, which is the book of life (THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL revealing God was all and did all): and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works (The spiritually dead are proved guilty under the mindset of self-determination, freewill, and choice where they believe the works are indeed THEIR works).
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it (All nations are raised to damnation / condemnation;); and death and hell (the mindset of self-destiny and the uncertain existence of no confidence or false confidence that follows it) delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works (The spiritually dead are proved guilty under the mindset of self-determination, freewill, and choice where they believe the works are indeed THEIR works).
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire (The mindset of self-destiny and the uncertain existence lacking confidence is exposed by the Word properly interpreted by Messiah showing through Prophecy that All is under God’s meticulous control to bring us to this conclusion instilling an existence of certainty and confidence in the proven understanding from that point forward). This is the second death (This is the second time Messiah has spoken and his Voice heard proving all are dead and raising us to true life according to John 5:24-29 and Daniel 12:1-7).
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire (When full truth comes and is proven such, anyone not having proper understanding is cast into the Word of God to receive proper understanding so that they can be part of what is given in Revelation 21-22 as the “whosever” that comes and takes of the water of life freely).
1 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
3 And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal (Gentile descendants of Japheth according to Genesis 10):
4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth (UNGA Resolution 181 in 1948 and then the 6-Day-War of 1967, Zionists in league with and empowered by Revived Rome / UN take control of the Holy Land), and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armor, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords (Swords are the false understanding which uses a deviate interpretation of the Law and Prophets that supports violence, deceit, military conquest and occupation):
5 Persia (North and East in the vicinity of the river Euphrates), Ethiopia, and Libya (South and West in the vicinity of the river Nile) with them; all of them with shield and helmet (The shield and helmet depict their false sense of confidence based upon their faith which is the shield of general understanding whereby they defend what they do, and the helmet of their understanding rooted in self-determination freewill, and choice, believing they are correct and authorized to act in this area of the world according to their concepts of self-perceived truth):
6 Gomer (Gentile descendants of Japheth according to Genesis 10) , and all his bands; the house of Togarmah (Gentile descendants of Japheth according to Genesis 10) of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.
7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
8 After many days (After the longtime of Daniel 10:1, the Times of the Gentiles of Leviticus 26:18-39) thou shalt be visited (the confirmation of the 70th Week in the Last Half from 1984 – 1987 by Messiah): in the latter years (the last years of the Times of the Gentiles in 1948/1967) thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.
Coming AGAINST the Mountains of Israel
Opposing What Is Promised as the Blessing
Within the Law and the Prophets,
the Spiritual Mountains of Israel
This is not speaking of the literal condition of the land when Gog comes. It is speaking of the condition of Israel and the Holy Land as envisioned in the Promise of God to Israel within the stated prophecies and promises in the Law and Prophets / the Mountains of Israel. The Zionist intrusion empowered by Revived Rome/UN, called here “Gog and all his bands” is coming AGAINST that vision of being at rest with no one afraid and in prosperity which is the promised condition as understood to be under Messiah and proper government as prophesied for blessing to the world in the Law and Prophets / the Mountains of Israel.
9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee (The ‘many people with thee’ is understood within all the world being gathered together via Revived Rome / UN in their actions legislatively, religiously, and militarily carried out via that world body in the Holy Land).
10 Thus saith the Lord God; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time (prior to and including 1948 through the moves of World War I and II, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion exercised in stock market control etc. to bring about the United Nations which operates per their manipulation) shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:
11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
Again, this is not the actual condition of the area, this is speaking of what the conditions of the land will be when under Messiah and the proper government bringing the Promise of Abraham to perfection in the Holy Land. This move of Gog is against the truth that will bring righteous conditions. Gog thinks he can bring the promise his own way establishing democracy / republic styled government or the iron of Rome over and with the clay of the Arabs peoples of the area.
12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.
Motive Manifested for Their Machinations
Here is revealed the difference between the two parties that make up this invasion prior to Israel’s conversion. First there is the Zionist mindset operating as the “False Prophet” to manipulate the Gentile world to try and establish the Promise of Abraham in the land THEIR way which has come against establishing it according to the truth of the Law and the Prophets or has come AGAINST the Mountains of Israel. Second, there is the Gentile, world mindset to solely control for political power called the Beast with its concept of a bastardized version of Judeo-Christian beliefs centered in democracy / republic style government of strictly the Gentile world trying to fulfill “making the world a better place” via proliferating its form of government by force upon the rest of the world in the same style as ancient Greece and Rome. Both Zionists and Revived / UN are under the greater mindset of the Dragon.
The Zionist Zoo
One wants the Promise of God to Israel, as they profess to understand it, in a restored Davidic / Solomon rule over the Holy Land still under the Law of Moses. This is, of course, interpreted through oral Torah traditions, extending to professed insight into the very presence of God through Kabbalah – Zohar (the Golden Calf of alternate approach as clearly marked out in Section III of this publication) in the hands of the elite Sanhedrin, Scribes, and modern Pharisees. They attempt to bring the restored Davidic / Solomonic Kingdom about by Machiavellian means within self-destiny, with their claim to collective messiah status just Korah in Numbers 16, rather than following the guidelines in the Law of Moses established for blessing.
The Revived Rome / UN Rouse
Revived Rome / UN, the Gentile side of the equation, believes even as Alexander the Great, that the world would be better off with the great Greek mindset prospering all agendas. This is seen today as we come to end of this scenario in the mindset of the USA and its founding fathers to infiltrate the world with democracy furthering USA agenda. Extending from the USA since 1776 departure from the British rule, we have had the French Revolution, where the soldiers that assisted the USA in their revolution against Britain when back to France with this idea and were greatly influential in fomenting that hideous change in government from which came the literal murders and beheadings of countless thousand from the recent invention of those times, the guillotine. From here even Britain went in transformation into the Parliamentary styled government much like the USA, which has extended all over the world to the point where any government not so organized is vilified and soon removed by force in order for the rights of the people, under this form of government, to ascend. Such may be fine for the world of the nations, but this is not the formula for blessing of the world delineated in the Law and Prophets. It is rather coming against the Mountains of Israel, violating the Law and the Prophets, in this Gentile persuasion which has intruded into the Land of Abraham, and its Patriarchal rule of the established elders of Isaac and Ishmael, with its iron of Rome forcing homage to same from the Clay of the peoples of this area. This is no more vivid than what is revealed in their use of the Zionist aspirations that, although operating in the wrong method, wants the Promise of God for Israel. Revived Rome / UN just like its predecessor the Old Roman Empire, is seen also in the 1948 Zionist State granted by the UN as a democracy in the Holy Land purely for the aspirations and vision of Rome and NOT the Promise of God as dictated for this area of the world by the Law and Prophets / Mountains of Israel.
13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?
It is important that the Sons of Ishmael dwelling in all this area, designated as Arabs in the terms Sheba and Dedan located in ancient Arabia, and the merchants of Tarshish as all those that live and economically survive between the river Nile and Euphrates, are not willing pawns in this move but, being in question concerning it, are manipulated to the ends of Gog. This can be plainly determined when examining the voting record of the nations, many coerced into voting for UNGA Resolution 181. This action divided the Holy Land for Gog’s purposes and economic gain realized today in oil production, but has been under manipulation of the Zionists to enter as well for their purposes. It is EXTREMELY important to distinguish these two entities, both considered one, that will come to a dividing point once the Messiah Ministry is completed bringing that division. Ezekiel 38 and 39 CANNOT be discerned without making this distinction, along with the events transpiring around it.
14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord God; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it?
Two Parties in the Deception,
But Who Is Deceiving Who?
This verse shows how Gog entered and came against the Mountains of Israel / the Law and the Prophets. It was done by a deception to look like it was in Israel’s interests. It was a move that was personified to be Revived Rome / UN granting the boon to the Jews to have their homeland thus creating the façade that the UN was the deliverer and Messiah to Israel giving her what she desired. Yet, the Law and the Prophets clearly printed and in the hands of Gog, as the number one best seller every year called the Bible, plainly shows the promised deliverance of Israel, returning them to the land, is in direct contrast and contradiction to Gog’s endeavors and deception. In other words, Gog well knows the truth of the proper return, but goes along with the Zionist manipulation for Gog’s own purposes. This is presented here in Ezekiel 38:14 as Gog having its own agenda and going along with Zionist aspirations in order to conquer the Holy Land for its own purposes of ‘taking a spoil’ realized quite practically as “oil.”
15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:
16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
17 Thus saith the Lord God; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?
Specifically, this is the earlier prophecies of the Book of Joel and much of Isaiah, one showing the nations as the northern army as in Joel, and the other as the Assyrian in Isaiah. Jeremiah shows the beginning with literal Babylon under Nebuchadnezzar in Jeremiah 25 with projections to the destruction of spiritual Babylon of the end time in Jeremiah 51.
18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord God, that my fury shall come up in my face.
This is the same as in Zechariah 14:3:
Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle
The other scriptures must be brought to bear here where in no place in Ezekiel 38-39 is Israel depicted in sin or rebellion. This is the key to understanding this passage. It actually takes place from verse 18 onward due to the fact that Israel has been judged and converted whereupon the Last End of the Indignation from God against her is finished. The judgment is then turned upon the nations that have abetted and aided her rebellion before her conversion when she came against Jerusalem and the Israel of God in truth, due to her league with them for their democratic / republic designs and world control for their own motives NOT ATUNE TO THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS NOR THE BLESSING INCLUDED WITHIN..
19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord God: every man's sword shall be against his brother.
Here is a clear clue how this battle is waged against the nations by God in defense of Israel once she is converted. The conversion and recognition of proper government under Messiah will be so surprising and misunderstood within any concept of religion concerning Israel and prophecy, that it will throw the world in these arenas into confusion turning upon one another for answers and accusations.
22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone (This rain is the fulfillment of the Word properly interpreted destroying all previous understandings that have come against Jerusalem and the Israel of God in truth).
23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord. (Here again is the Sovereignty of God and His plan revealed from the Writer’s and Director’s perspective, the Divine view, giving the purpose in the long run arrived upon when all is completed.)
1 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:
3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.
4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.
5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God.
6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the Lord.
7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel.
8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord God; this is the day whereof I have spoken.
Understanding Ezekiel 39:1-8 is contingent upon keeping very clear the progression of the judgment that commenced after December 3, 1987 when Messiah left the Holy Land and called for the removal of the deception:
1) The “time times and the dividing of time” of Daniel 7:24-27 brings to bear the judgment that then “sits” consequent upon that time being fulfilled by Messiah. This judgment running its full course with Israel FIRST, brings them to being slain via the nations taking the Holy Mount dividing Jerusalem in two parts as far as the Zionists are concerned in one of two methods undetermined as we write these pages. Either by leaving it within the Palestinian State as stated in the preparatory move whereby Palestine was officially recognized in the UN internationally as a nation, UNGA Resolution 67/19, or by returning to UNGA Resolution 181 to take Jerusalem and place it in the Middle East as its own state under an international regime. Made neither part of the Palestinian State nor the Zionist State, it will not be the unified capitol of the Zionist entity. This will fulfill and complete the 6th Trumpet / Plague. It will result in the conversion of Israel to Messiah and proper government within the 7th Trumpet / Plague that comes “quickly” once Israel is slain and removed from her current mindset and mode of operation.
2) The ten nations (the clay) have been in the weakest kingdom, forming the 7th head in union with Revived Rome (the iron) / UN of the 7 heads to rule the Holy Land. Once they have done their job in slaying Israel in this legislative and political move with Revived Rome / UN, they will soon be “overcome of the Lamb” as stated in Revelation 17 and recognize the proper Torah mandated and Quran reminded, government of the Most Powerful King / Messiah and join Israel in the government. This will fulfill Ephraim, intermarried and Arab in nature since 721 BCE, being joined with Judah, bringing Ishmael to unite with Isaac in the Holy Land in peace eclipsing the peace that was enjoyed at the time of Solomon.
3) Proper government being over the Holy Land, Revived Rome / UN losing, by that time, its hold over the ten Arab nations, THEN comes into judgment.
It is critical to understand that this final judgment is all that Ezekiel 38 and 39 addresses; they show the attack originated publicly in 1948, its motives, and then proceeds to the final judgment against it as strictly the Gentile invasion of parties outside of the Holy Land. There is no mention of any negative aspect of Israel in that she has already been converted bringing this judgment upon Gog. Remember the Arab faction within the rivers Nile and Euphrates represented as Sheba and Dedan, with Tarshish as far as the economy (merchants), were in question of the move by Gog and therefore exit Revived Rome / UN when Messiah is manifested in rule over Israel with proper government for the Holy Land. According to Revelation 17, they give their kingdom or allegiance to Revived Rome / UN / the Beast UNTIL the Word of God is fulfilled, that fulfillment being, paramount and predominately, within the conversion of Israel under Messiah establishing proper government which is also the force of Revelation 18 referenced as “coming out of Babylon.” This leaves Gog to stand as the 6th or 6th head of the Seven heads as solely Rome where Revived Rome / UN, the iron of Daniel’s image, is THEN without the clay, the ten Arab kings, also depicted as the ten horns whereby the 7th head was established. In other words, when the Everlasting Kingdom smashes the image in Daniel 2 on the “feet,” it destroys the Gentile hold on the Sons of Isaac and Ishmael; this is the same as the 10 kings being overcome by the Lamb in Revelation 17. With Israel and the Arab nations around Israel now in acceptance and union with Messiah and proper government according to the Law and the Prophets, of which the Quran is a reminder stating the same thing, Gog is judged as coming against these two united entities. This is clearly the emphasis of Ezekiel 38-39 and must be read and understood as occurring at this point when Ishmael and Isaac have vacated Babylon the Great.
Gog Is Spiritually Represented in Modern Christianity
Under Its False Concepts Having Departed Truth
Since the Days of the Apostle Paul and John
Plain and straight to the crux of the matter, once Israel and the Arabs, Isaac and Ishmael, are judged and joined under proper government of Messiah, the Gentile nations of the world will go into great tribulation and MUST learn truth afresh and properly, leaving their concepts of the Law of Moses and the Gospel of Grace and these things under their teachers and their interpretation which have been bastardized and corrupted. Christendom is currently, as we write these pages, something so vile it cannot be redeemed, only discarded, destroyed, and as stated of the assembly of Laodicea “spewed out;” hence the scriptures are clear that Babylon has fallen into abject decay beyond healing, and thus must be obliterated.
Burning and Burying
We now will enter the metaphors of Ezekiel 39:9 to the end of that chapter which display how the weapons of war used to spiritually come against, or in opposition to, the Law and the Prophets are burned. Attacking the proper inheritance granted the Israel of God as well as the Sons of Ishmael granted to dwell before, or in the presence of, their brethren / Sons of Isaac according to Genesis 16:10 – 12, the weapons of war are burned by virtue of the truth / fire and brimstone rained from heaven, which is the clear understanding of the Word of God in fulfillment, incinerating these false concepts proved in error, in opposition to truth, and worthy of only complete destruction.
9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel (Those that dwell in the cities of Israel are first Jews literally; second, according to Genesis 16:10-12 there are the Sons of Ishmael, in general the Arabs) shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:
This fire is the clear understanding of what transpired in the Seven Years of the 70th Covenant Week confirmed in Messiah and primarily the revelation of truth that came according to Daniel 9:24 contingent upon Messiah confirming that Covenant.
10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord God
There will be nothing of the true inheritance of Israel, pictured here as the living forests, burned in this fire. It is rather the false inheritance and the doctrines of Christendom that have advanced its “Crusades” upon the holy city for centuries that will be totally burned and consumed by the truth revealed in clarity that comes from the confirmed 70th Week of Daniel 9. All of Babylon will be destroyed and not a stone taken, for any purpose, from Babylon as stated in Jeremiah 51:26. There will be no doctrine utilized or in any way included, which was derived in the thinking of those that constructed the original understanding which has built and fostered all that came against Jerusalem in truth via the deception and its lies. It is the proper understanding turned against the false, via what has been revealed by Messiah upon confirming those 7 years, that will burn and destroy all that came from that pseudo-understanding which kept mankind away for the truth and real life. The weapons of war that are burnt are the doctrines, concepts, and interpretations that have come from the mother – self-destiny, opposing God’s Sovereignty and proper government over the Holy Land and eventually the entire world.
11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers:
“Passengers” is also rendered “sojourners.” They have sojourned as Abraham awaiting the city whose builder and maker is God – the full arrival of the Promise and the consequent blessing according to the Law and the Prophets. They have sojourned in the land due to the false nature of what was in control there. They live in a temporary dwelling awaiting that which is permanent established from the seat of proper understanding in heaven brought to earth. They live their lives in view of what is promised realizing that what they are currently experiencing, within which they exist, is temporary and will be replaced by the finished product of God’s plan manifested at the end of His Plan.
This is in Canaan, extending to the rivers of Nile and Euphrates, the Holy Land promised to Abraham and his descendants whereby all are buried after being slain by the truth coming forth removing the lies. All that is depicted in this publication, BABYLON HAS FALLEN, leading to the full and simple truth in THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL derived by proper interpretation of Michael the Great Prince which confines the same to the Holy Land between the rivers Nile and Euphrates, will spiritually slay and bury all in their former understanding.
shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamongog.
12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land. (The house of Israel recognizing the fulfillment of the spring Holy Days of the first month and the fall Holy Days of the seventh month in fulfillment and writing of the Law upon the heart will bury that which came against truth.)
13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them (This includes the Sons of Ishmael coming under Messiah and learning of him); and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord God.
14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.
15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any sees a man's bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamongog.
16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.
For as long as it takes, the buriers / the Law and the Prophets, understood and clear from the mouth and interpretation of Messiah carried in the publication capsulized concisely in THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, augmented by this larger work BABYLON HAS FALLEN, interpreted within pointing to the Holy Land / the “valley of burying,” and what has transpired there, will remove, via a clear understanding, that which once lived and existed under a false understanding. This symbolized as “man’s bone;” that which is derived from the mindset that we, as men, control our own destiny under the concept of self-determination, freewill and choice, which has been proven, by this battle and victory of truth, as slain and dead. Understood by the “wise” that have then come to full and correct understanding as in Daniel 12:3, the full and clear truth remains the only remedy to deliver anyone slain and dead being outside of understanding in the old world and its views, interpretations, and consequent understandings which are death and generate death. The dead bones marked for burying from the point of the major battle that slays, are anyone and any entity under belief of a doctrine, derivative concept in religious, political, economic, domestic/family practical, educational, scientific, etc. arenas that was thought to be truth at one time and is now dead via exposure of full truth. They will be exposed and discarded by the truth manifested; they will be buried in this “valley of burying” which is the Holy Land under proper understanding of the Law and the Prophets; the same Law and Prophets which ARE indeed the appointed, continual buriers.
17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord God; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field (Those that come out of their bestial understanding to proper understanding), Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood (Understand and enjoy all that God has done in time and space through the list of entities that are enumerated here, spiritually understood).
18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.
20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord God.
21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.
22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day and forward.
23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.
24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.
25 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel (Judah first and then Ephraim as intermarried and now the Arab peoples within the Sons of Ishmael), and will be jealous for my holy name;
26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.
27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;
28 Then shall they know that I am the Lord their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them anymore there.
29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord God.
According to Ezekiel 48 which delineates the final inheritance, the strangers which have been judged and converted to the same understanding and thus dwell in that inheritance spiritually, receive blessing equal to Israel and so we come to the final state again in Ezekiel as portrayed in all the Bible of the entire creation being the Israel of God walking henceforth as stated in Jeremiah 31:34, Zephaniah 3:9, and Zechariah 14:9. Metaphorically this is also the same as depicted in Revelation 21 and 22 coming down to the individual or undefined “whosever” who drinks of the water of life freely without the Israel / Jew or Gentile / heathen / stranger classification.
The Law and the Prophets:
The Foundation Giving Clarity
To the Enigmas / the Mysteries
Of the New Testament and Specifically
The Record Within the Book of Revelation
Following through with our usual and imperative mandate to always speak none other things than that which the Prophets and Moses did say should come, as was the clear standard to which the Apostle Paul adhered as well according to Isaiah 8:30 and Acts 26:22, we have given this brief explanation of Ezekiel 38-39 with Revelation 20 – 22 from the Law and the Prophets aligning the metaphors of Revelation 20:7 onward completing the last and Seventh repetition of Daniel’s 70th Week in fulfillment with all that proceeds from it. It is concluded with the justification of all parties by God and God Himself justified by all parties via understanding what He has done and why. The metaphors of Revelation 21-22 we will not interpret at this time, with exception concerning the “waters of life,” but leave those for the reader to experience as we all enter into this time of judgment and then the consequent blessing which these chapters depict resulting from the God’s Finished Plan and Purpose.
Is There an After-Existence Called “the Afterlife”?
There is an old expression among many students of the Bible: “Where the Bible is silent let us be silent as well.” The problem with that expression is that those unauthorized to speak and teach have not been silent, but have relegated so many things to a supposed after-existence of the person’s personal, physical, and literal human identity, complete with memory, individual personality, bodily feelings, and mental apprehension exactly as one has in time and space as a normal human-being. As we have made clear in these pages, the scriptures are to be spiritually discerned and interpreted by one with the Spirit or mindset of God, the Originator of the Law and the Prophets, as well as the Originator of all true Science. The New Testament is only authoritative by holding to the Law and the Prophets meticulously for definition of all terms, symbols, metaphors, as well as the understanding of exactly what the writers of the epistles / letters and testimonies / witnesses recorded within the New Testament are projecting as fact. The Law and Prophets, called also the “Old Testament,” give no clear indication of any after-existence as has been interpreted by basically Christianity when one physically dies, nor is the Resurrection proclaimed in those scriptures projecting any raising of physical, dead bodies or expressing a physical-like existence in some supposed “afterlife.” It is best stated by
Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
As presented in PHYSICS OF THE UNIVERSE, AN INTRODUCTION TO GOD, true Science bears witness that energy and therefore matter cannot be created nor destroyed; it only changes form. Therefore God, being eternal, neither created nor destroyed matter and energy. Matter and energy have only changed form to be what we see before us in time and space. He did not bring about new matter and energy. The supreme form of energy at it fastest level, so fast it stands still, is thought. This is best illustrated as picturing a past event in one’s life such as a moment with one’s parent at the breakfast or dinner table. One is instantly there in thought without perceiving a ticking away of time or any traveling of distance. All that we see and experience in time and space comes from God who exists as pure thought, not confined to time and space. Once it is perceived as intelligent design and purposed plan, it is “word.”
When that thought and intelligent design / word is expressed in time and space, it is perceived within the five senses first of all as light, and caught by the receptor of the eyes. This is the fastest perceived form of energy by mankind’s physical body at this point in our history. However, there are levels of energy call waves that are picked up by cell phones and other devices, as we write these pages, that are certainly real which we do not perceive with our physical bodies. The next level moving slower that light is sound perceived by our ears which are at a slightly lower location than our eyes on our bodies. Next, we have the nose which senses even slower energy as aromas and vapor. This is followed downward on our faces to the mouth which senses slower energy as water and food. Finally, the solids of dense nature such as rocks and changes in temperature generated by all these other forms making up the atmosphere around us, are sensed by the remainder of the body through the basic sense of touch utilizing predominantly the skin and associated nervous system.
However, that which is faster than light, which is thought, is perceived by the sixth sensor called the brain, physically placed and located on our bodies by Intelligent Design above all the other sensors. It is the factor of thought, soon understood via Michael’s clear revelation of same in the publication PHYSICS OF THE UNIVERSE, AN INTRODUCTION TO GOD, which is the origin of our existence, and it is this form to which we return after physical death which is the proper interpretation of Ecclesiastes 12:7. We came from God / Supreme Intelligent Design / Spirit / Thought and so return. What will be for each of us when we return to that Source is not what the Bible addresses other than to start it there and leave it there with no comment about that existence one way or the other.
Putrefying Projections and Prognostications
The doctrines of heaven and hell, as declared within religion, are based upon the mother doctrine of self-determination, freewill, and choice. Such teachings are built upon the illusion that we control and are ultimately responsible for the origination of our own thoughts, then acting upon same with the result ending in our supposed “eternal destiny.” The first thing wrong with such doctrines is that they are based upon New Testament scriptures separated from the properly interpreted meaning of their terms, symbols, principles, etc. which must first be deduced from the Law and the Prophets and then carried into the context of what Christ, the Apostles, and especially the Apostle Paul are stating in their statements recorded in the New Testament.
However, the Bible aside, how can anything eternal start and go on without end? Doesn’t something “eternal” have to be just as infinite before the so-called “start” that we may perceive within our finite senses, as it is in projection forward? Such is indeed the truth with thought or energy in its highest and fastest form, the nature and existence of God. It only changes form from that state to something in time and space perceived for a mere blip on that endless line extending from infinity to infinity. All and everything, every person, and every deed, and thought is God, comes from God, then returns to God who is that thought expressed in time and space as matter and energy.
Science: Limited by Its Own Brilliance
There is no one that has any higher esteem for true science than Michael and the author of these pages. It is only the limitations certain ‘supposed,’ genius minds have placed upon it that we decry. They have stopped at light and derivatives thereof as the first source of creation and failed to move their explorative interest beyond what they can see under an atomic microscope analyzing photons and bosons, and their actions. Even atheists, in some quarters of their thinking, have concluded that every molecule, action, and interaction, called “cause and effect,” meticulously follow like dominoes precisely aligned, and then fall to strike one another for a very determined result eliminating the concept of freewill entirely. It only baffles the mind why they have not gone the extra step, but have stopped where all known science today has terminated at the big bang scientifically, and biblically called “let there be light.” Perhaps they are repulsed, knowing somewhere religious claims have a proper bearing, which they shutter to give any acquiescence. This is rightly so, and we concur knowing that atheism is but another avenue that God has ordained fully controlled by Him to bring us to this final end and exposure of all truth bringing unity between science and Bible revelation.
Why has religion stopped at “In the beginning God” without having a clue as to His essential essence expressed as “Spirit” which is simply “thought”??? Why has science stopped at photons of light without having a clue that the next step is the origin of light, unseen energy always-present eternally, which is “thought”??? The understanding, that Energy-Thought-Spirit are indeed one, has eluded both parties. When finally perceived by both, it could bring unity and exploration to infinity, bringing us to the new heaven and new earth basking in that wealth of knowledge called also “God.”
The answer is simply . . . all that we see and understand, and do not see and understand, is according to those dominoes aligned by Intelligent Design that have been falling and striking one upon another since before and during what we perceive as time and space. Within that design resides the sure word of prophecy which, rightly interpreted by Michael the Great Prince, shows how they have fallen until the current hour as we write these pages. To the crux of the question here posed, it has not been the time and place for those opposing systems of science and biblical chronicle to dissolve and come together, until now. Israel must come to its prophesied place in unity with God before those other dominoes following after, such as what we have suggested here between science and religion, will also fall, thus taking us on to the rest of the line of infinite dominoes proceeding from God and returning to God that has aligned them.
Prophetically the end in view is presented in Ezekiel 40-48 which is the Law and Prophets foundation for understanding Revelation 21-22, with what appears to be literal buildings and structure producing water that heals and gives life, spiritually discerned and therefore not literal, which we will NOT address in combination with other scriptures at this time. It is Michael’s mind on such matters of the future, as to what it will and will not be, that such is best addressed in hind sight as the majority of this publication has so addressed everything bringing us to the current hour. We await the joining of the bride / Israel in truth and righteousness to the bridegroom / Messiah from which all creation will benefit. This will burn up and dissolve the past, thus establishing the new heaven and new earth, the world to come of which all the Prophets testify, for which all creation stands in ready expectation.
The Waters of Life
What is clear however, from Ezekiel 47 compared to Revelation 22 is that the same free-gift of salvation within receiving the Messenger and his Message, at the First Resurrection is the same received by the remnant of Israel at that time which will be the only deliverance of mankind here in the final resurrection at the end time as well. Called the Gospel of the Kingdom in 30 CE and carried to Israel by the Apostles for that brief time of spiritual resurrection and awakening, it will return proven to be the eternal message in THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, removing sin altogether as a concept. This is not the Gospel of Grace under Paul’s message which involved blood atonement, forgiveness of sin under the Law of Moses in the one-time offering of Messiah, access to the Gentiles to that ministry, all in view of entering with Messiah and the Apostles that followed him fully into the Heavenly Holy of Holies for full atonement. That same message left those that did not fully enter, as most did not at that time and none have entered as we come to the end time, still sinners, forgiven and covered under blood atonement in the offering of Messiah. All await, with Israel, the Messiah appearing the Second Time doing away with sin in the fulfillment of the scapegoat feature of the Law as we have covered in Section I – XIII prior to these expositions attached to Section XIII as links and presentations of the Book of Revelation. It is upon that fulfillment the following verses shall be true without impediment from henceforth and forever more. We close this publication with those words quoted from the Prophets and implore the reader to read the introductory message again THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL:
1 Ho, every one that thirsts, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labor for that which satisfies not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
4 Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.
5 Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the Lord thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee.
6 Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returns not thither, but waters the earth, and makes it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
11 So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.
1 Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar.
2 Then brought he me out of the way of the gate northward, and led me about the way without unto the utter gate by the way that looks eastward; and, behold, there ran out waters on the right side.
3 And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles.
4 Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins.
5 Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over.
6 And he said unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen this? Then he brought me, and caused me to return to the brink of the river.
7 Now when I had returned, behold, at the bank of the river were very many trees on the one side and on the other.
8 Then said he unto me, These waters issue out toward the east country, and go down into the desert, and go into the sea: which being brought forth into the sea, the waters shall be healed.
9 And it shall come to pass, that everything that lives, which moves, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and everything shall live whither the river cometh.
8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.
9 And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one.
10 All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin's gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king's winepresses.
11 And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.
1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
6 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.
7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keeps the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.
9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and makes a lie.
16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that hears say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
