ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

The author extends his sincere appreciation to the following people who have greatly helped and influenced him
in the production of this series, “End Time Events”.

The LORD JESUS CHRIST, for His patience, love, and understanding. For His call and ability upon the
authors life.

To my PARENTS, for their love and training in the formative years of my life.

To my wife, LOIS, and my children, DEBBIE, KEREN, MICHAEL, and RACHEL, for their understanding
during the many hours of isolation in the making of this series.

To the many BIBLE TEACHERS over the years, too numerous to mention by name, who have helped shape my
Christian life. For the bountiful dissemination of their knowledge.

To SUSAN W. STENBERG, for her exceptional ability in the illustrations used throughout the five volumes,
which add another dimension to the series.

To JOHN AND WENDY STENBERG, for the outlining of the charts used in these books. For the many hours
of proof reading, and the laborious task of compiling the indexes.

To PASTOR CLARK TAYLOR. Although the majority of the manuscripts were prepared in the author‟s spare
time, section were created during employment at Christian Outreach Centre. For this I am truly greatful.

To DES and BETH BRYDEN, without whose support, these volumes would not have been born.

To KEVIN J. CONNER, of Melbourne, Australia, one of the great teachers in the body of Christ, whose vast
knowledge widely dispersed over the years is greatly respected and appreciated. Also for the kind permission in
the use of his charts.

To the late PASTOR W.H. OFFILER of Seattle, Washington, USA for one of his many monumental works,
“God and His Bible”. This teaching supplied the author with the many pieces of the most majestic jigsaw
puzzle ever created. His chart is the most comprehensive ever published.

To the late DEWEY BURKETT, teacher, who in 1961 was used by the Holy Spirit to position all the pieces of
the puzzle together for the author. This has caused the author to stand faithfully in these truths over the last 40
years.

To PASTOR ROB WHEELER of Auckland NZ, for his evangelistic and teaching ministry. It was through him
that the author rededicated his life to the Lord Jesus Christ in 1960. He preached a most graphic message on the
Second Coming of the Lord.

To the MANY PEOPLE who have encouraged the author to stay with his original objective during the many
long hours of preparation. [This series took 3 years to produce].
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 4

PREFACE

Solomon, the wisest man whoever lived said, THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN.
Ecclesiastes 1:9-10. The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall
be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it
hath been already of old time, which was before us.
Ecclesiastes 3:15. That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth
that which is past.
That is another way of saying, history repeats itself. While it is true that the one thing men do not learn from
history, is that they do not learn for history, it remains to be stated that the reading of the Word of the Lord, the
prime duty of man, yields the reoccurring fact that there is great benefit in absorbing major sections of the Bible.
Both shadow and substance, type and reality, are to be considered.

Indeed, the mark of a SUCCESSFUL MAN, is that he searches out the word of the Lord, and gives his mind to
much meditation and reflection of it.
Joshua 1:8. This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and
night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way
prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

THE BIBLE IS LIKE A DIAMOND. From different angles, various colours are seen reflecting from its many
faces. From on vantage point a rich ruby red may catch the beholder‟s eye. From another a deep sapphire blue.
Yet another, a brilliant emerald green. And so it continues. Much depends upon the position of the onlooker.
This is true in understanding of the Word of God. As that understanding increases, instead of a clamouring or
the grasping of one particular truth, there is a yielding in acceptance of the many facets, held in balance.
It is like the many ripples fashioned from a pebble thrown into a pond. Ever widening circles are created. So it
is with the Word of God.

The most important part of any building is the FOUNDATION, for the frame, roof, walls, interior and finishing,
depend upon the strength of the foundation.
The PREPARATION to any undertaking is vitally important. So it is in the application of a good understanding
of things that are to be.

Volumes 1, 2 & 3 form a basis for the thoughtful understanding of End Time Events. One the foundation had
been laid, the superstructure may be set in place.
Isaiah 28:10. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a
little, and there a little:
The question, DOES THE CHURCH GO THROUGH THE TRIBULATION PERIOD is answered in a most
enlightened manner.

End Time Events is an essential volume for any serious student of Biblical Prophecy.

The many appendices form a source of information for the reader in many areas.
End Time Events was written to inform both the church and the world order of this End Time Generation of the
events that are to soon transpire before the soon appearing of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Holy Bible is man‟s most authoritative source of information. It is more up to date that tomorrow‟s
newspapers it is more accurate than any occult seer, or spiritist medium. It is the Christian Church‟s more sure
word of prophecy.

The Scriptures can not be broken.


God gave to man 66 books of the Bible. The entire Biblical record must teach one consistent, harmonious truth.
It can never be at variance with itself.
In this volume, the most glorious age in the history of the Christian Church, is seen. It shows that the greatest
fulfillment of God‟s purpose for the church is yet future!
The Glory of God Descended on the perfected bride of Christ is to be seen as the vehicle through which God
will manifest his Son to the world, immediately prior to the Second Coming of Christ.
The four foundational volumes are the Creative and Redemptive Weeks, the Tabernacle of Moses, and the
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 5

Feasts of the Lord. Daniel‟s Seventy Week Prophecy is discussed in detail as it is the key for the proper
understanding of events of the last days. With the careful laying of this foundation the author proceeds to show
the harmonious blending of these truths with the teaching of End Time Events.

In both the realms of Christians and non- Christians alike there is the clear sensing that some climatic event is
about to befall this planet, and the universe.

The charts and illustrations make this volume a most valuable volume for the home, together with the church
and world library.

The End Time Chart, in five colours is one of the most comprehensive charts of the end time generation ever
published.
Each one of the five volumes interrelate with each other, while at the same time they are complete in
themselves.
For example, the second veil, separating the holy place from the most holy place in the tabernacle, the day of
atonement of the Feasts of the Lord, and the union of Adam and Eve on the sixth day of creation all portray the
same event, the Perfection of the Church.
Matthew 5:48. Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
The Lord Jesus would never have issued this directive if it were impossible of fulfillment.

The great DISTINGUISHING FACTOR of this series is that of the scripture reference. EACH REFERENCE,
with the book quoted written in full, together with the chapter and verse/s, appears in BOLD TYPE ON THE
LEFT HAND MARGIN. This allows the readers eye to scan rapidly over the page to locate any given text.
Further, the verse is written out in full. This makes it extremely easy for the reader to assimilate the teaching of
the Bible very rapidly. He is spared the often labourious task of turning to quoted references in his bible. This
allows for the absorbing of many verses and bible teachings.

THE CHURCH IS AT THE CROSSROADS. The future of Christianity hangs in the balance. This book,
together with others in the series was written to inspire faith in the mighty promises of God. It is written to
inform the church of its hope in the last days. It is penned to generate a rising to the tremendous possibilities
that the Lord has in store for the End Time Body of Christ.
All too often End Time Events conjours up in many minds, the negatives of the last days. While there is indeed
the negative, there is also the positive. The blacker the darkness gets, the brighter the light shines. One of the
verses of the Bible to be fulfilled in these days is:
Isaiah 60:1-2. Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the
darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory
shall be seen upon thee.

The BEAUTIFUL ILLUSTRATIONS enhance the magnificence of this volume.

As GOLD is hidden beneath the surface of the earth, so also, do the precious veins of truth in the Word of the
Lord course hidden through its pages. It remains for whosoever will, to delve into its treasures. Then, having
been found, they are to be refined in the life of the believer, through meditation and reflection. They must be
sought after. They must be dug out.

This series is pregnant with SCRIPTURAL REFERENCES. The major reason for this is that the Bible is the
beast commentary on itself. Someone has wisely said, the Bible sheds a lot of light on commentaries! The Holy
Spirit works with the Word of the Lord. The word of the Lord is living and active. The Bible is to be allowed
to speak for itself. It is indeed a library. It is often forgotten that the scriptures are composed of sixty-six books.

Each Bible Verse, each Bible Truth, each Bible teaching is to be held in PROPER BALANCE. Where and what
God emphasises, the believer should emphasise. Where God is silent, he should remain so. Where God is
strong, the Christian should exhibit strength.
Proverbs 11:1. A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight.
This is much like two symmetrical wings of an aircraft. These must be held in a straight and level position in
order to maintain a correct flight path and navigational course.
God does not place a premium on ignorance. He will not accept this as an excuse. It is the believer‟s
responsibility to seek out the book of the Lord.
That task does not belong to the teacher.
2 Timothy 2:15. Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 6

dividing the word of truth.


Luke 12:48. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For
unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of
him they will ask the more.
John 10:35. If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;
Isaiah 34:16. Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her
mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.
Hebrews 10:7. Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.

As the reader pours through these pages, it is the AUTHOR‟S EARNEST PRAYER, that a great desire might be
born in every heart, both to see and to know the Lord Jesus in each verse. May many profitable hours be spent
in reflection and meditation on this most absorbing subject.

SECTION 1

THE GLORY OF GOD

“What‟s that?” “What‟s happening?” “What‟s going on?” “ Has there been an accident?” “Has someone had a
heart attack?” “Has someone been shot?”

These questions were being asked everywhere by scores of people on the edge of the huge downtown crowd.
The occurrence was repeated many times in the many major cities of the world, even small towns and villages.
There was not a people on the planet who were overlooked
Only once in the earth‟s history did a similar event take place.
What was happening?
As necks craned to get a better glimpse, as the crowd heaved and jostled to get a better view, and children were
lifted high on the shoulders of their parents to gain a better advantage of the event, the explanation began to
filter through the crowd. Interjectors were told by the masses to “KEEP QUIET!” “LISTEN!” was the constant
cry. At last the happening was revealed!

“Do you remember that old man with one arm, old Ernie, the city identity, that stood on the street corner selling
papers to make his meager living?”
“Yes I know him”
“Has he died?”
“No”
“What has happened to him?”
“His withered arm began to grow. LOOK! It‟s as long and as perfect as the other. It‟s a MIRACLE!”
“How did it happen?”
“A lady prayed for him. All she said was, in the name of Jesus Christ be made whole Look! I CAN‟T
BELIEVE IT! His withered arm has been recreated. I‟ve never seen anything like it in my life. It‟s a miracle I
tell you! Look at his fingers! His arm is totally restored. It is exactly like his good arm.

All over the world, the scene was being repeated. Ordinary Christian people were praying for the sick. "BE
THOU MADE WHOLE IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST," was their command. There was not a limb that
would not respond. There was not a sickness known to man that could stand against the name of Jesus. Mental
institutions were affected. Sanity was being completely restored to multitudes of inmates. Incurable diseases
were being healed.
People were being born again all over the world.

Only once, in Israel, did Jesus Christ ever perform anything like this. In the synagogue Jesus said to the man
with the withered arm, stretch it forth! Immediately he did so. It was made whole like the other. He even
commanded the dead to be raised. They obeyed him!
Now, two thousand years later this healing and deliverance ministry was being executed on a world basis. The
church of Jesus Christ had never experienced anything like it. The precedent was established on the day of
Pentecost when three thousand souls were saved. Now, millions were responding and were yielding their lives
to the Lord Jesus Christ as the personal Savior.

The visitation of God was forecast by Jesus Christ.


John 14:12. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and
greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
Mark 16:17,18. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall
speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them;
they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Acts 1:8. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses
unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 17

Matthew 7:7. Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
Mark 11:23,24. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and
be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall
come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when
ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Matthew 18:19. Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they
shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
Mark 5:34. And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy
plague.
Matthew 15:28. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as
thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.
Mark 10:52. And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he
received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
Luke 8:24. And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we perish. Then he arose, and
rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm.
This SUPERNATURAL PHENOMENON was the ministry of Jesus Christ on earth in the lives of His
believers! His works were being manifested over the face of the whole earth. It was this that was now being
shed forth. It was the manifestation of Jesus Christ in his people doing the works that he had begun. Now, in
the END OF THE AGE, immediately prior to the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, there was a
manifestation of the life of Christ in the through his people such as there never was at any other point in church
history!

Miracles were commonplace. Signs abounded everywhere. Wonders were breaking forth on every hand.

This was the MANIFESTATION OF THE SONS OF GOD. The last and greatest visitation of the Spirit of God
to the earth before the cessation of world history!

The gift of the Spirit flowed freely through the disciples of the Lord.
1 Corinthians 12:9,10. To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers
kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues.
As with the Lord Jesus, so the church, the body of Christ will experience the working of miracles and healings
in her MATURITY, her perfection, her completeness.

Yes, my friend, THE GREATEST DAYS OF CHURCH HISTORY ARE STILL FUTURE! The greatest
manifestation of God‟s power will be common place.

To this point there have been isolated men and women who have demonstrated the power of God, among them
William Branham, A. A. Allen, Oral Roberts, T. L. Osborn and Kathryn Khulman.
When the GLORY OF GOD descends upon the church, then the same miracles that the Lord Jesus
accomplished will be working by dedicated followers.
The glory of God will yet COVER THE EARTH AS the waters cover the sea.
The supernatural signs following the preaching of the gospel of Christ will be worldwide.

Upon the completion of the building of the Tabernacle of Moses, the first dwelling place of the Lord God on the
earth, the GLORY OF GOD impregnates it.
Exodus 40:33-35. And he reared up the court round about the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the hanging of
the court gate. So Moses finished the work. Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of
the LORD filled the tabernacle. And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the
cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
As many of the mighty truths of God are established in threes, so also is the earthly dwelling place of God.
These three related truths are the TABERNACLE; the TEMPLE, and the CHURCH.

As with the tabernacle so with the temple. When Solomon had finished all the work, the GLORY OF GOD
descended upon it.

2 Chronicles 5:13,14. It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be
heard in praising and thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals
and instruments of musick, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that
then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD; So that the priests could not stand to
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 18

minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of God.

If this is true concerning the first two earthly dwelling places of God Almighty that were built with human
hands, how much more will it be true of the tabernacle which the Lord built, and not man; the temple of the
Holy Spirit, the corporate body of the believers of the Lord Jesus Christ.

This has been foretold by the prophet Haggai.


Haggai 2:9. The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in
this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.

This began to be fulfilled on the day of Pentecost. It was a forerunner of what was to transpire in the last days.
The glory of the latter house, (the END TIME CHURCH), shall be greater than the former, (the early church).
The glory of the church, the body of Christ, will be greater than the two former earthly dwelling places of God.
Ecclesiastes 7:8. Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than
the proud in spirit.
Acts 2:1-4; 12,13,15. And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one
place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house
where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of
them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave
them utterance. And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?
Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine. For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but
the third hour of the day.

The GLORY OF GOD is yet to CLOTHE the END TIME CHURCH.


Revelation 12:1. And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon
under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
The woman, the end time church, the bride of the Lord Jesus Christ, is here shown to be FILLED with the
fullness of GOD THE FATHER, (the sun), the fullness of THE SON, (the moon), and the fullness of THE
HOLY SPIRIT, (the stars).
This is the glorious church, the church without spot, wrinkle, or blemish; the church that is impregnated with the
GLORY OF GOD.
Ephesians 3:19. And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the
fullness of God.

the glory of the LORD appeared in the cloud.

Exodus 40:34,35. Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the LORD filled the
tabernacle. And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon,

Numbers 14:10, 21, 22. But all the congregation bade stone them with stones. And the glory of the LORD
appeared in the tabernacle of the congregation before all the children of Israel. But as truly as I live, all the earth
shall be filled with the glory of the LORD. Because all those men which have seen my glory, and my miracles,
which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to
my voice;

congregation: and, behold, the cloud covered it, and the glory of the LORD appeared.

under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
Isaiah 60:1,2. Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the
darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory
shall be seen upon thee.
This verse of scripture will find its ultimate fulfillment in the church of the end time. The church is clearly seen
and is readily identifiable in Revelation 12:1.
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and
upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
Psalm 24:7-10. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory
shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up

afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the
Gentiles.
Ezekiel 1:28. As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the

Ezekiel 43:2,4,5. And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was
like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory. And the glory of the LORD came into the house
by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the east. So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner
court; and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house.

are one: Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold
my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
In this great prayer of the Lord, Jesus prayed that his followers might be ONE. The purpose of this was that
THE WORLD MIGHT BELIEVE. The one and only unifying factor that can make His people one, is the
GLORY OF GOD! If Christians can be united themselves, there is no need for God to unite them. There is no
need for Jesus to pray for unity. The unified body of Christ, the perfected Church of the end time, can only be
brought into being by the GLORY OF GOD descending on it.
The GLORY OF GOD then, will unify the church, answering the prayer of the Lord Jesus. This will cause a
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 21

manifestation of the life and GLORY OF THE LORD such as the world has never seen. It is this alone that will
cause the world to BELIEVE!
The GLORY will make the church ONE, that the world might BELIEVE.

the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory
was to be done away: For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of
righteousness exceed in glory. For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of
the glory that excelleth. But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed
into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Majesty on high;
Hebrews 2:7,9,10. Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour,
and didst set him over the works of thy hands: But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for

do bring their glory and honour into it. And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 23

SECTION 2

JESUS IS COMING BACK

This fact is clearly stated by the following seven persons.

Firstly Jesus Himself, declared that He will return.


John 14:3. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I
am, there ye may be also.
Matthew 26:64. Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the
Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
Matthew 24:27. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the
coming of the Son of man be.
Mark 8:38. Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful
generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the
holy angels.
Jesus not only states that He is coming back, but actually declares the manner of His return.

Secondly, ANGELS said Jesus would return.


Acts 1:11. Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is
taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

Thirdly, the apostle PAUL records is belief that the Lord Jesus is going to come back to this earth.
2 Thessalonians 1:7,8. And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from
heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not
the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
Again, he confirms that belief in 1 Thessalonians 4:16. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a
shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
PETER, fourthly, witnesses the same truth.
1 Peter 5:4. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
2 Peter 3:9,12. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering
to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. Looking for and hasting
unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall
melt with fervent heat?

Fifthly, JOHN adds his voice.


1 John 2:28. And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and
not be ashamed before him at his coming.
1 John 3:2. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know
that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
Revelation 1:7. Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him:
and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
Revelation 3:11. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
Revelation 16:15. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk
naked, and they see his shame.
Revelation 22:20. He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord
Jesus.

JAMES follows sixthly. James 5:8. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord
draweth nigh.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 24

Finally, JUDE quotes Enoch. Jude 14,15. And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these,
saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to
convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and
of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

THE TIME.
Matthew 24:36,44. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father
only. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
From these statements of the Master, we are clearly instructed that no man will know the day or the hour of the
second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are, however, expected to know the TIMES AND THE
SEASONS.
1 Thessalonians 5:1,4. But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. But ye,
brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
JESUS CAN NOT AND WILL NOT COME TONIGHT! Further, He can not and will nor come at ANY
MOMENT. The Bible is the inspired Word of God. It declared that heaven and earth shall pass away, but my
words will not pass away. Matthew 24:35.
Numbers 23:19. God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said,
and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
Malachi 3:6. For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
Hebrews 13:8. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
Psalm 89:34. My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.
2 Timothy 3:16. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for
correction, for instruction in righteousness:
Acts 3:19-21. Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of
refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached
unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by
the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.

THREE MAJOR PASSAGES OF SCRIPTURE, RELATED TO THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST.


1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. 5:1-5. But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are
asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again,
even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the
Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the
trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up
together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore
comfort one another with these words. But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write
unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when
they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with
child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a
thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
2 Thessalonians 1:7-10. 2:1-12. And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be
revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and
that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the
presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to
be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day. Now we
beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye
be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the
day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a
falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself
above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing
himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye
know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work:
only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed,
whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with
all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that
they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
2 Peter 3:9-18. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 25

longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day
of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the
elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing
then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and
godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall
be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look
for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for
such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. And account that the
longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given
unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some
things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other
scriptures, unto their own destruction. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye
also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. But grow in grace, and in the
knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

HARMONY is the theme that must impregnate any study of the Word of God.
Scripture must interpret Scripture. Line must be upon line, precept mist be on precept.
Isaiah 28:9,10. Whom shall he teach knowledge? And whom shall he make to understand doctrine? Them that
are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon
precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
John 10:35. If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;
This teaching on END TIME EVENTS has been founded upon the overall, total Word of God. Its contents must
of necessity blend with Creative and Redemptive Weeks, Moses‟ Tabernacle, the Feasts of the Lord, and
Daniel‟s Seventy Week Prophecy.

THE BOOK OF REVELATION. Two thirds of this boo is to be fulfilled in this generation. It was written
primarily for the End Time generation, those upon whom the end of the world are come.
1 Corinthians 10:11. Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our
admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

THE GREATEST SIGN OF THE END TIME IS THE JEWS!


Matthew 24:32-35. Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves,
ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the
doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth
shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
The FIG TREE is the symbol of the nation ISRAEL Jesus teaches that when Israel becomes a sovereign
independent nation in the earth, this would be a sign to the world of the emerging END TIME GENERATION.
The generation that witnesses this climatic event, would not pass until all these things would begin to be
fulfilled.

A GENERATION with God is FORTY YEARS.


Hebrews 3:9,10. When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years. Wherefore I was
grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.
Matthew 13:39. The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers
are the angels.
Similarly, Psalm 102:18-21. This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be
created shall praise the LORD. For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the
LORD behold the earth; To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death; To
declare the name of the LORD in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem;
Daniel 12:4. But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall
run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

Revelation chapter 6-11, OVER A QUARTER OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION, also shows forth this
same period of time.
The END TIME GENERATION commences with 1948, when the fig tree blossomed, when Israel was
recreated, and concludes with the SECOND COMING OF CHRIST. This period of time is divided into THREE
SECTIONS.
The FIRST is from Israel‟s Independence on 14 May, 1948, to the Perfection of the Church. This section is
APPROXIMATELY eighty two years in length. [30 years from 2000 A.D.] [It is to be emphasised that this
is an estimate only!] These events are detailed on the GREEN section of the accompanying chart. No man
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 26

knows the day or the hour of the Lord‟s return.


Matthew 25:13. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
This outline is set forth as a guide only. It is not stated that Jesus is going to return in 1988. Some people are
teaching this. They know more than the Lord Jesus. He said He didn‟t know. The angels don‟t know. I don‟t
know. No creature knows. GOD ALONE KNOWS!
We do not know the DAY of HOUR, the specifics. We are to know the TIMES and SEASONS, the
generalities.
What is ten years compared to the whole redemptive programme of God of 6000 years? We do know that THIS
is the generation that will see the return of the Son of God in great power and glory!
This time element covers the period of the SEVEN SEALS of the book of Revelation, chapters 6:1 to 8:1.

The SECOND section extends from the perfection of the Church to the beginning of the great Tribulation
period. This period is TWELVE MONTHS in length. These events are detailed on the RED SECTION of the
chart. They span the period of the seven trumpets of the book of Revelation, chapters 8 to 10

The THIRD section bridges the time period from the beginning of the great tribulation to the Second Coming of
Christ, a period of three and a half years. These events are shown on the BLUE section of the accompanying
illustration. They cover the section of the book of Revelation, chapters 11 to 18. This shows forth the fact that
ONE THIRD of the book deals with this period of time.

THE FOURTH section, shown in YELLOW on the diagram, covers a period of one thousand years. It expands
from the Second Coming of Christ to the beginning of ETERNITY. This span of time is known as the
Millennium. It is shown in the book of Revelation chapter 20.

It is to be understood that in isolating these events for the purpose of study, there is an overlapping and a
dovetailing of the same, blending into the whole pattern of End Time Events.
CHART ONE shows the blending of the Creative and Redemptive Weeks, Moses‟ Tabernacle, Daniel‟s Seventy
Week Prophecy, and the Chapters of the Book of Revelation.

CHART TWO illustrates the End Time Generation divided into its four section. The letters A, B, C & D are
amplified in the detailed chart.

SECTION 3

DANIEL'S SEVENTY WEEK PROPHECY

DANIEL‟S SEVENTY WEEK PROPHECY. Daniel 9:24-27. 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. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build
Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be
built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut
off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and
the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall
confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the
oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the
consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

ONLY FOUR VERSES OF SCRIPTURE! Yet, within these verses a period of two thousand, five hundred
years are spanned. Daniel‟s Seventy Week Prophecy is the GREAEST TIME MEASUREMENT PROPHECY
recorded in the Word of God. It is the KEY for unlocking the order of events of the last days. A CORRECT
UNDERSTANDING of it is necessary for every serious student of End Time Events. Its FULFILLMENT takes
place in the end of the present age.

SEVENTY WEEKS. The Hebrew reads seventy sevens. Seventy sevens equal four hundred and ninety years.
These are four hundred and ninety years, when the day for a year principle is employed.
Scriptures referring to the DAY FOR A YEAR principle follow.
Leviticus 25:8. And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the
space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years.
Genesis 29:27,28. Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this also for the service which thou shalt serve with me
yet seven other years. And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week: and he gave him Rachel his daughter to wife
also.
Hebrews 13:20. Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of
the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant.
Through His death, and by the sacrifice of Himself, THE MESSIAH CAUSED SACRIFICE AND OBLATION
TO CEASE. This was in the midst of the week. The only person that could possibly achieve this was the Lamb
of God.
John 1:29. The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh
away the sin of the world.
Every sacrifice in the Old Testament pointed to Jesus. The offering of the Lord Jesus Christ was the END of
sacrifice once for all and oblation.
Romans 10:4. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

THE LORD JESUS CONFIRMED THE EVERLASTING COVENANT for three and a half years, at which
time He was cut off.
Hebrews 9:15-28. And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the
redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the
promise of eternal inheritance. For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.
Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood. For when Moses had spoken every precept
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 32

to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and
hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people, Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God
hath enjoined unto you. Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the
ministry. And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no
remission. It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but
the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ is not entered into the holy places
made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God
for us: Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with
blood of others; For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the
end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. And as it is appointed unto men
once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that
look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

For any person to offer SACRIFICE AND OBLATION after the crucifixion of the Lamb of God, he would have
to deny the offering of the Son of God. The Lord Jesus was God‟s provision for sin. He was offered once for
all!
Hebrews 10:12. But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of
God;
Any further sacrifice or oblation would be to God an ABOMINATION.
Isaiah 66:3. He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog‟s neck;
he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine‟s blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea,
they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations
Galatians 2:18. For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor.
Matthew 23:38. Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
In this scripture the Lord Jesus is declaring to Jewry that desolation is going to be their portion because they
have rejected God‟s perfect offering for sin. Until this time the presence of the Lord had been in the temple.

When Jesus died on the cross, the veil of the was rent from the top to bottom.
Matthew 27:51. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth
did quake, and the rocks rent;
THE MOST HOLY PLACE WAS EXPOSED for the first time. God was finished with the temple!
Every human being was and will be required to accept God‟s offering for sin. The temple, for the first time
since it was built was now FORSAKEN OF THE PRESENCE OF GOD. IT WAS DESOLATE!

The offering of any other sacrifice was now an ABOMINATION. Together, this spells THE ABOMINATION
OF DESOLATION. The Lord Jesus made reference to this.
Matthew 24:15. When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet,
stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
The abominations are stated to be OVERSPREADING. They actually spread over the entire church age. The
commencement of the overspreading of abominations is with death of the Lord Jesus, in the end of the first of
the seventieth week. The consummation, is with the beginning of the last half of the seventieth week, the period
of the great tribulation.
Jewry as a nation still rejects the offering of the Lord Jesus. It continues under the law of sacrifice and oblation.
Consequently the end is still at a future point in time. This constitutes an abomination. The result is desolation
from the presence of God.

The last half of the seventieth week yet remains to be fulfilled. This is the great tribulation period of three and a
half years.
References to this time period are cited from both Books of Daniel and Revelation.
Revelation 11:2,3. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto
the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. And I will give power unto my
two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
Revelation 12:6,14. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they
should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. And to the woman were given two wings of a
great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times,
and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
Revelation 13:5. And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was
given unto him to continue forty and two months.
Daniel 7:25. And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most
High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the
dividing of time.
Daniel 12:7. And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his
right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times,
and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall
be finished.

Time, times and half a time, one thousand, two hundred and sixty days, forty two months, and three and a half
years, all refer to the same time period.

The CHURCH AGE of two thousand years is flanked on either end by the end of the first half of the last week,
and the beginning of the last half of the seventieth week.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 36

THE ANTICHRIST does not appear until the beginning of the great tribulation. This is seen in Revelation 13.
The Antichrist will be Satan incarnate in human flesh. This will not occur until Satan has been cast out from
heaven. That event is yet future.

Revelation 12:9-13: And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which
deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a
loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power
of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their
lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth
and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a
short time. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought
forth the man child.

The Antichrist then, is not cast out of heaven until, the beginning of the great tribulation period of three and a
half years. Consequently, he can not make any covenant with the Jews seven years before the end of the church
age and the second coming of Christ. He has no covenant to make with either Jew or Gentile. The first half of
the seventieth week is given to the confirmation of the covenant by the Lord Jesus through GRACE. The
second half is given to the two witnesses to confirm the same covenant, in JUDGMENT.
BOTH MINISTRIES are seen in Isaiah 61:1-2. The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD
hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to
proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the
acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
THE DAY OF VENGEANCE is the great tribulation.
Matthew 24:2. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be
left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
The prophecy of the destruction of the temple in 70 A.D. was given immediately after He had declared to Israel,
your house is left unto you desolate.
Never, in all the history of Israel, had any enemy nation been able to attack or interrupt the Feast of Passover. In
A.D. 70, Prince Titus, son of the Roman Emperor Vespian mounted an attack against Jerusalem. The result was
a devastating victory for him. The temple and all its services were totally destroyed. Obviously, Jewry had
been forsaken of the true God. Their abominations resulted in their desolation.
The overspreading of the abomination of desolation is today still being experienced.

THE CONSUMATION is yet future. There still remains to be fulfilled the last half of the seventieth week.

THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION is a EVENT that transpired in history, that is, the destruction of the
temple in 70 A.D., a TIME PERIOD, that total church age of two thousand years, and finally, a SYSTEM that
will head up in a human being, that is antichrist.
This truth, as is the case with many of the truths of the Word of God, has a threefold application, past, present
and future.

THE TIME SETTING FOR THE VISION. Daniel had understood, by reading the Word of the Lord, that the
fulfillment of the Babylonian captivity was at hand.
Daniel 9:2. In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word
of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of
Jerusalem.

Daniel prepared his heart to seek the Lord. The seventy weeks prophecy was given as a result of his prayers.
PROPHECIES OF TIME ARE IN THE BIBLE!
Babylon had just fallen. Belshazzar had been slain. Daniel had only recently received the revelation of the
cleansing of the sanctuary, that is, the perfection of the church. The result of this vision was the motivational
desire to seek the face of the Lord.
Daniel 9:3. And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and
sackcloth, and ashes:
Jeremiah 25:8-14. Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Because ye have not heard my words, Behold, I
will send and take all the families of the north, saith the LORD, and Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my
servant, and will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations
round about, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and an hissing, and perpetual
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 37

desolations. Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the
bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the candle. And this whole
land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.
And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babylon, and that
nation, saith the LORD, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans, and will make it perpetual desolations.
And I will bring upon that land all my words which I have pronounced against it, even all that is written in this
book, which Jeremiah hath prophesied against all the nations.
This prophesy was given in the first year of the reign of Nebuchandezzar, king of Babylon, 606 B.C. Babylon
was to reign for seventy years. At the end of this period of time, Babylon was to fall.

The prophecy of JUDAH‟S RESTORATION is found in Jeremiah 29:10. For thus saith the LORD, That after
seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing
you to return to this place.

THE SABBATH. 2 Chronicles 36:15-21. And the LORD God of their fathers sent to them by his messengers,
rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place: But they
mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD
arose against his people, till there was no remedy. Therefore he brought upon them the king of the Chaldees,
who slew their young men with the sword in the house of their sanctuary, and had no compassion upon young
man or maiden, old man, or him that stooped for age: he gave them all into his hand. And all the vessels of the
house of God, great and small, and the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures of the king, and of
his princes; all these he brought to Babylon. And they burnt the house of God, and brake down the wall of
Jerusalem, and burnt all the palaces thereof with fire, and destroyed all the goodly vessels thereof. And them
that had escaped from the sword carried he away to Babylon; where they were servants to him and his sons until
the reign of the kingdom of Persia: To fulfill the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land
had enjoyed her sabbaths: for as long as she lay desolate she kept sabbath, to fulfill threescore and ten years.

The land was required to keep the sabbath. Every seventh year was a sabbatical year. Israel had refused to keep
the sabbath. The Lord had kept a record. The rest at one time.
Leviticus 26:35. And I will bring the land into desolation: and your enemies which dwell therein shall be
astonished at it. And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land
shall be desolate, and your cities waste. Then shall the land enjoy her sabbaths, as long as it lieth desolate, and
ye be in your enemies‟ land; even then shall the land rest, and enjoy her sabbaths. As long as it lieth desolate it
shall rest; because it did not rest in your sabbaths, when ye dwelt upon it.

SEVEN SABBATICAL YEARS times equals four hundred and ninety years. During all this period of time the
land had not enjoyed the required sabbath year rest. The time of judgment commenced in 606 B.C. 606 B.C.
plus four hundred and ninety years equals 1096 B.C. This was the beginning of Israel‟s disobedience. It was
the very year that Saul was chosen king! When Israel rejected the Lord and Samuel from reigning over them,
they began to fail God in not keeping every year a sabbath.

THE COMMANDMENT TO RESTORE AND BUILD JERUSALEM.


2 Chronicles 36:22,23. Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD spoken by the
mouth of Jeremiah might be accomplished, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made
a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying, Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia,
All the kingdoms of the earth hath the LORD God of heaven given me; and he hath charged me to build him an
house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? The LORD his God be with
him, and let him go up.
Judah and Jerusalem were restored at the end of the seventy year period. The captivity came to an end when
Cyrus came to power in 536 BC

The Messiah was not to appear at the end of the seventy years but at the end of seventy times seven, that is, four
hundred and ninety years. The time of the Messiah‟s anointing and death were revealed to Daniel.

THE TIME TO MESSIAH THE PRINCE. The decree went forth in 457 BC
Ezra 7:11-26. Now this is the copy of the letter that the king Artaxerxes gave unto Ezra the priest, the scribe,
even a scribe of the words of the commandments of the LORD, and of his statutes to Israel. Artaxerxes, king of
kings, unto Ezra the priest, a scribe of the law of the God of heaven, perfect peace, and at such a time. I make a
decree, that all they of the people of Israel, and of his priests and Levites, in my realm, which are minded of
their own freewill to go up to Jerusalem, go with thee. Forasmuch as thou art sent of the king, and of his seven
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 38

counsellors, to enquire concerning Judah and Jerusalem, according to the law of thy God which is in thine hand;
And to carry the silver and gold, which the king and his counsellors have freely offered unto the God of Israel,
whose habitation is in Jerusalem, And all the silver and gold that thou canst find in all the province of Babylon,
with the freewill offering of the people, and of the priests, offering willingly for the house of their God which is
in Jerusalem: That thou mayest buy speedily with this money bullocks, rams, lambs, with their meat offerings
and their drink offerings, and offer them upon the altar of the house of your God which is in Jerusalem. And
whatsoever shall seem good to thee, and to thy brethren, to do with the rest of the silver and the gold, that do
after the will of your God. The vessels also that are given thee for the service of the house of thy God, those
deliver thou before the God of Jerusalem. And whatsoever more shall be needful for the house of thy God,
which thou shalt have occasion to bestow, bestow it out of the king‟s treasure house. And I, even I Artaxerxes
the king, do make a decree to all the treasurers which are beyond the river, that whatsoever Ezra the priest, the
scribe of the law of the God of heaven, shall require of you, it be done speedily, Unto an hundred talents of
silver, and to an hundred measures of wheat, and to an hundred baths of wine, and to an hundred baths of oil,
and salt without prescribing how much. Whatsoever is commanded by the God of heaven, let it be diligently
done for the house of the God of heaven: for why should there be wrath against the realm of the king and his
sons? Also we certify you, that touching any of the priests and Levites, singers, porters, Nethinims, or
ministers of this house of God, it shall not be lawful to impose toll, tribute, or custom, upon them. And thou,
Ezra, after the wisdom of thy God, that is in thine hand, set magistrates and judges, which may judge all the
people that are beyond the river, all such as know the laws of thy God; and teach ye them that know them not.
And whosoever will not do the law of thy God, and the law of the king, let judgment be executed speedily upon
him, whether it be unto death, or to banishment, or to confiscation of goods, or to imprisonment.
Ezra 9:9. For we were bondmen; yet our God hath not forsaken us in our bondage, but hath extended mercy
unto us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to give us a reviving, to set up the house of our God, and to repair the
desolations thereof, and to give us a wall in Judah and in Jerusalem.
The Messiah could not come to the temple until THE TEMPLE WAS REBUILT.
Malachi 3:1. Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom
ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he
shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

THE FIRST SEVEN WEEKS of this prophecy [forty nine years} is given to the restoration of the temple under
Ezra and Nehemiah.
The account of this rebuilding is recorded in the book of Nehemiah chapters 2, 3 and 4.

THE SECOND PERIOD of the prophecy, sixty two weeks [four hundred and thirty four years], plus the seven
weeks [forty nine years], makes a total of sixty nine weeks [four hundred and eighty three years]. This was the
time the Messiah was to appear! The year of the decree was 457 BC The year the Lord Jesus was anointed with
the Holy Spirit, making Him the Messiah, was 26 AD This totally fulfills the sixty nine weeks.
Luke 3:23. And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph,

SECTION 4

RE-CREATION OF ISRAEL

During World War 1, DR CHAIM WEISMANN, a noted British research chemist, was called upon by the
British Government to create a certain synthetic substance used in the manufacture of ammunition. Dr
Weismann accepted the challenge, and, after prayer, was able to develop a new method of producing the much
needed chemical. The government, in gratitude for his service requested how his services might be repaid.
Being the brilliant statesman that he was, he replied that he asked nothing for himself, but that if the Palestinian
campaign of the war be successful, that the land be given to his people for the re-establishment of a homeland
for the Jew. The request resulted in the BALFOUR DECLARATION of 1917, stating that Palestine was to
become the fulfillment of the request. Jewry would be permitted to return to their homeland of Bible days.
The Turks, then in control of the country were not prepared to surrender the area without a fight. Preparations
were made to defend, particularly Jerusalem, to the last man. Several SCOUT PLANES were sent over the city.
The Turks fled from the city without firing a shot. What would cause this sudden reversal of attitude? The city
of Jerusalem was delivered, as the prophet Isaiah had declared some 2500 years previously! [Here is shown the
prophetic picture of the aeroplane].

Isaiah 31:5. As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and
passing over he will preserve it.

DANIEL‟S VISION OF THE IMAGE portrays the succession of world powers that were to occupy Jerusalem
until the time of the vision be fulfilled. The time element involved, 2,520 years, is known as the TIMES OF
THE GENTILES. The vision commenced in 606 BC 2,520 years from this date points the 1914-1918 war.
[World War One]. This was the war that liberated Jerusalem.
Only two weeks after his arrival in Palestine, the Commander-in-Chief GENERAL ALLENBY requested five
squadrons of aircraft. By the time of the commencement of the Palestine advance, the enemy air force had
virtually been banished from the skies. The enemy held Jerusalem; the British troops were attacking, yet never
at any stage did these forces attack Jerusalem!
General Allenby issued implicit instructions that there was to be no fighting in Jerusalem. The General‟s
objective was to attack the enemy, north of Jerusalem, to completely circle him, yet at the same time leave him a
way out, so that the Turks would have to evacuate the city without the city itself becoming damaged in any way.
After careful preparation and reorganisation he gained a decisive victory over the Turks at Gaza which led to the
capture of Jerusalem.
General Allenby‟s plan was successful, and, through the night of December 8, the Turks evacuated the city.

Isaiah 33:20. Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a
tabernacle that shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of
the cords thereof be broken.
NOT ONE SHOT WAS FIRED at the conquest of Jerusalem!

Following the destruction of Jerusalem by Titus is AD 70, Roman domination continued a further 568 years
until its conquest by the Saracens in 638. It was then ruled for 879 years until it was conquered by the Turks in
1517. The Turks dominated the Holy Land until 1917 when they were driven out by the British forces under the
command of General Allenby.
British airman became Jerusalem‟s protectors. When the Turks found that the recapture of the city was
impossible, they aimed their guns at the city to destroy it. Only the British Flying Corps hindered them from
achieving their objective. Jerusalem came through the war completely untouched!
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 43

On DECEMBER 11th, General Allenby walked into Jerusalem through the Jaffa Gate, the gate of the friend. A
military guard was formed by soldiers of Britain, Australia, and New Zealand.
The official surrender was received at the base of the Tower of David. The following proclamation was then
made.
“To the inhabitants of Jerusalem the blessed, and the people dwelling in the vicinity. The defeat inflicted upon
the Turks by the troops under my command has resulted in the occupation of your city by my forces. I
therefore, here and now, proclaim it to be under martial law, under which form of administration it will remain
as long as military consideration make it necessary. However, lest any of you should be alarmed by reason of
your experiences at the hand of the enemy who has retired, I hereby inform you that it is my desire that every
person should pursue his lawful business without fear of interruption.
Furthermore since your city is regarded with affection by three of the great religions of mankind, and its soil has
been consecrated by the prayers and pilgrimages of devout people of these three religions for many centuries,
therefore do I make it known unto you that every sacred building, monument, holy spot, shrine, traditional site,
endowment, pious request, or customary place of prayer, will be maintained and protected according to the
existing customs and beliefs of those to whose faiths they are sacred”
GUARDS have been placed at Bethlehem and at Rachel‟s tomb. The tomb at Hebron has been placed under
exclusive Moslem control. The hereditary custodians of the Wakf of the gates of the Holy Sepulchre have been
requested to take up their accustomed duties in remembrance of the act of Caliph Omar, who protected the
Church.

The year 1917 is recorded in the Anglican Book of Common Prayer. The reading for December 8, 1917 was
Isaiah 31! This was the very day the enemy was EVACUATING THE CITY. This chapter has the reference to
the AEROPLANE.
The deliverance of Jerusalem was achieved by the domination of the air by the ROYAL FLYING CORPS.
On DECEMBER 8th the morning lesson was Isaiah 31. In the evening it was Isaiah 32. This was the day the
bombers flew over the city.
On DECEMBER 9th the morning lesson was Isaiah 33. The evening chapter 34. This was the day of the
surrender of Jerusalem.
DECEMBER 10th morning, Isaiah 35. In the evening there was an OMMISSION of five chapters and the
reading was Isaiah 40:1-12! It commenced:-
Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that
her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD‟S hand double for
all her sins.
The word warfare is also translated APPOINTED TIME.

The squadron used on this significant historic occasion was 14


Squadron. Its motto was, “I SPEAD MY WINGS AND KEEP MY
PROMISE”.

CREST OF 14 BOMBER SQUADRON

The writing at the base of the motto in Arabic declares, "I


spread my wings and keep my promise."

This has reference to Isaiah 31:5. As birds flying, so will the


Lord of Hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also He will
deliver it; and passing over He will preserve it.

DECEMBER 11, the last half of chapter 40, was read in the morning. In the evening chapter 41. This chapter
commences, Keep silence before me, O islands.

The name Allenby in the Arab tongue is Allah-en-Nebi. Its meaning is “Prophet of God”. This had a mighty
effect on the Turks fleeing the city.
A saying among the Arabs read, “WHEN THE WATERS OF THE NILE FLOW INTO JERUSALEM, THEN
THE PROPHET OF GOD FROM THE WEST WILL DRIVE THE TURKS FROM JERUSALEM”. They had
held it for 400 years. 200 miles of desert separated this event from ever taking place! However, the USA had
laid an oil pipeline through this area. It had never been used due to the outbreak of the war. It was a simple
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 44

operation for Allenby to connect it.


WATER FROM THE NILE THEN FLOWED TO JERUSALEM!

Luke 21:24. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and
Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
The 2,520 years of the seven times prophecy, have a measure of fulfillment in 1917. It was not until exactly 50
[Pentecost, Jubilee] years later that the 6th war exposed the old city of Jerusalem to the Jews.

ELEVENTH HOUR
World War 1 ceased on the ELEVENTH HOUR of the ELEVENTH DAY of the ELEVENTH MONTH. This
was ELEVEN MONTHS after General Allenby entered Jerusalem on the 11th DAY of December 1917!
Certainly the world had entered the MIDNIGHT HOUR.
Matthew 25:6. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
The prophet of God, Allenby, drove the Turks from the land.

BRITIAN administered Palestine under a mandate from the League of Nations for thirty years. Fierce
opposition encountered from the returning Jews forced Britain to surrender the mandate to the United Nations.
Britain was voted out by the UN in 1948 and in 1949 subsequently withdrew her forces and administration. The
newly created Israeli state was recognised by the British government.

Planes of 14 Bomber Squadron


These planes, from 14 Bomber Squadron, are shown in action in
Palestine in 1917.

Isaiah 19:23. In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into
Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians.
This was fulfilled for the first time in history by British engineers traversing the impregnable desert from
Southern Palestine to Syria.
The FIG TREE symbolises the Jews.
Jeremiah 24:1-10. The LORD shewed me, and, behold, two baskets of figs were set before the temple of the
LORD, after that Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon had carried away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king
of Judah, and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters and smiths, from Jerusalem, and had brought them to
Babylon. One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are first ripe: and the other basket had very
naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad. Then said the LORD unto me, What seest thou,
Jeremiah? And I said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the evil, very evil, that cannot be eaten, they are so
evil. Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these
good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place
into the land of the Chaldeans for their good. For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring
them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them
up. And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be
their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart. And as the evil figs, which cannot be eaten, they
are so evil; surely thus saith the LORD, So will I give Zedekiah the king of Judah, and his princes, and the
residue of Jerusalem, that remain in this land, and them that dwell in the land of Egypt: And I will deliver them
to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a
curse, in all places whither I shall drive them. And I will send the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, among
them, till they be consumed from off the land that I gave unto them and to their fathers.
This section of scripture refers t the DESOLATION OF JEWRY, the DESTRUCTION OF JERUSALEM by
Titus in 70 AD, and the DISPERSION OF THE PEOPLE.
Luke 13:6-9. He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and
sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I
come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering
said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: and
if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.
Matthew 21:18-20. Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered. And when he saw a fig tree in
the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee
henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. And when the disciples saw it, they
marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!
Matthew 24:32,33. Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves,
ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the
doors.
Jeremiah 29:17-19. Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will send upon them the sword, the famine, and
the pestilence, and will make them like vile figs, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil. And I will persecute
them with the sword, with the famine, and with the pestilence, and will deliver them to be removed to all the
kingdoms of the earth, to be a curse, and an astonishment, and an hissing, and a reproach, among all the nations
whither I have driven them: Because they have not hearkened to my words, saith the LORD, which I sent unto
them by my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them; but ye would not hear, saith the LORD.
Mark 11:12-14,20,21. And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry: And seeing a
fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he
found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit
of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it. And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree
dried up from the roots. And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which
thou cursedst is withered away.
This illustration is symbolic of the nation Israel. The fig tree symbolising the nation, had not evidenced any
fruit and was to come under the judgment of God. That the Jews have been a cursed people over the entire face
of the earth there is no doubt. Jesus forecast the destruction and desolation.
Matthew 23:38. Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
The Jews‟ cry was LET HIS BLOOD BE UPON US AND OUR CHILDREN. It certainly has been.
Matthew 21:43. Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 46

bringing forth the fruits thereof.


The Lord Jesus predicted the downfall of the nation.
Matthew 24:2. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? Verily I say unto you, There shall not left
here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
This prophetic utterance was fulfilled when Titus, son of Roman Emperor Vespasian, razed the building to the
ground in 70 AD!
Luke 21:20-24 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof
is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart
out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things
which are written may be fulfilled. But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those
days! For there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. And they shall fall by the edge of
the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles,
until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
Galatians 5:22,23. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Matthew 3:10. And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not
forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Matthew 7:19. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
JERUSALEM has been besieged 46 times; partially destroyed 13 times, completely destroyed 17 times. It has
known 25 changes in occupation. 1,000,000 lost their lives by sword and crucifixion. 2,000,000 became slaves
in various locations of the Roman Empire.
The final step in the annihilation of the nation occurred at MASADA. Resistance against the Romans held up
for two years, at which time the men killed their wives and children, and then themselves in a treaty of death.
966 Jews died. Masada is located 1,500 feet above the dead sea. It proved to be a mighty fortress. The end
came in AD 73.

The TEMPLE has never been rebuilt from that time.

A revolt against Rome in 132 AD was led by Simon Bar Kochba, resulting in the city being occupied again by
Jews. Rome however, determined to squash the rebellion, leveling Jerusalem and built in its place a Roman
city. On the temple mount they erected a temple to Zeus.
Omar, took the city in AD 638.
The Dome of the Rock, was built by Abdul Malik in 691 AD Its centre was over the Most Holy Place of
Solomon‟s temple. This is the same rock upon which Abraham offered Isaac.
After the Moslem Arabs, Jerusalem was to know occupation by the Turks, the Crusaders, the Egyptian
Moslems, and the Ottoman Turks (Moslem). Britain was next in line through the most unusual capture of the
city in 1917. Israeli Independence was declared in 1948. Then in the lightning six-day war of 1967, Jerusalem
was OCCUPIED BY JEWS for the FIRST TIME in over 1800 YEARS!
Jerusalem has certainly been trodden down the Gentiles

By 1880 the Jewish population of Palestine was 10,000.


The great migration was to America, where today there are 7,000,000. Only 3,000,000 live in Israel. 2,500,000
reside in Russia, and another 2,000,000 in other nations of the earth. This gives the total Jewish population
world wide of nearly 15,000,000.

Jewish influence in America, particularly in the world of FINANCE is well known.

There is no DOUBT that their influence affects AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY, this is born out by the fact
that in 1948 Golda Meir was able to raise $10,000,000 in one day, from Jewish businessmen.

Thousands of Jews were expelled from Russian in 1880.

Ezekiel 37:1-14. This passage of Scripture has a DUAL APPLICATION. There is a fulfillment to NATURAL
ISRAEL. There is also an application to the CHURCH.

The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the
midst of the valley which was full of bones, And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there
were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. And he said unto me, Son of man, can these
bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest. Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones,
and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD. Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones;
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 47

Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring
up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am
the LORD. So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking,
and the bones came together, bone to his bone. And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon
them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them. Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto
the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O
breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath
came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army. Then he said unto me,
Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is
lost: we are cut off for our parts. Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O
my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of
Israel. And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you
up out of your graves, And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land:
then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.

During the years of the 16th century to 1917, the Holy Land was in control of the Ottoman Turks. In 1870,
these people granted the right to the Jews to own land in Israel. At the turn of this century the Jewish population
was 40,000. By 1917 this number showed a 100% increase to 80,000.

Britain had suggested that the Jewish national home be in Uganda.

Arab influence and power over oil, forced Britain to withdraw the Balfour Declaration. It did so in 1939. There
were now 500,000 Jews in Israel.

During Hitler‟s purge in his effort to solve the “Jewish Problem” 6,000,000 Jews lost their lives.

Britain ceased totally the immigration of Jews to their homeland at this time. No doubt this incurred the wrath
of God on that nation, and today we behold the once great Empire fragmented, and faced with riots and
economic problems not hitherto experienced. This is largely due to their treatment of the Jewish people.

Currently Britain is experiencing the highest unemployment figures in fifty years. They have topped 3,000,000.
This is 1 in 8 in the work force.

Genesis 12:3. And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families
of the earth be blessed.

REFUGEES from Europe seeking entry into Palestine were apprehended by British authorities and taken to
Cyprus there to suffer a similar fate to the German Horror camps. Even ships were rammed and sunk by British
Navy resulting in a great loss of life.
In 1947 the United Nations recommended the termination of the British mandate, the internationalization of
Jerusalem under United Nations‟ trusteeship, the partition of Palestine, and the creation of separate Arab and
Jewish states. During the following six months the Jews bought weapons furiously to be in a somewhat armed
position before the British mandate expired.

Israel declared her INDEPENDENCE on 14 May, 1948. The first Premier was David Ben Gurion. Dr. Chaim
Weismann, became the first president.
Upon the declaration, the Arabs launched a major war offensive, calling it a war of extermination.
No Western nation offered the slightest assistance. The loudest supportive voice came from the Russian Foreign
Minister! Upon the duration of 27 days, the United Nations called for a cease fire.
The ensuing Armistice came in 1949. In the next one and a half years, 350,000 Jews immigrated to Israel.
Deserts were reclaimed. Roads, airports, and seaports were constructed. Millions of trees were planted. This
had a vast increase of the rainfall in the area, which in turn stimulated the growth and development of citrus
orchards.
More than 200,000,000 trees have been planted.
SODOM has become a great chemical mining area, situated on the shores of the Dead Sea. Potash, chloride,
and bromide are the main chemicals.

The Suez Crisis of 1956, resulted in an all out war with Egypt. In just 4 days Israel had taken the Sinai
Peninsula. Hundreds of tanks and 6,000 Egyptian soldiers were captured.
The lightning 6-day war of 1967 was an engineering military genius. The Arabs had declared that time they
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 48

would drive Israel into the sea. This was depicted on their postage stamps at that time. British intelligence was
concerned at the rapid drive south to Egypt, in that the Israeli supply lines could be severed. Their fear was
unfounded, as the cease-fire was called at the end of the 6th day.
When Nasser ordered the United Nations Forces out of the Sinai and Negev desert areas, the Israeli‟s, in a pre-
emptive strike completely demolished the Egyptian, Jordanian, and Syrian air forces before they could get off
the ground!
Two hundred thousand Jews visited the Wailing Wall on the first day it was opened in 1967.

The result of the war? Israel had captured and now possessed the entire Sinai Peninsula, the Gaza Strip, the
West Bank of the Jordan, and the Golan Heights.
Had the Arabs reckoned on such a decisive defeat they would have never engaged in the campaign in the first
place. This is true also of the enemies of the Church, spiritual Israel. Had the Devil realized the territory and
crushing defeat he was to loose he would never commenced his diabolical campaign upon the church.
In each war with natural Israel, in 1948, 1956, 1967, and 1973, they gained significant increases in their real
estate. Likewise, so also has the church. Again, the Arabs had failed in their objective.
The Yom Kippur War of 1973, launched another round. This war was to last for 18 days. It was initiated with a
surprise attack from both Syria and Egypt. The Yom Kippur is the most holy day of the years to the Jews. It is
the Day of Atonement. It rates with the Western World‟s Christmas Day. Israel was entirely unprepared. This
attack has a significant message for the Christian Church. It speaks of the fulfillment of the anti-typical Day of
Atonement to the church, the perfection of the church, the marriage of the Lord Jesus Christ to His Bride.
However, as the natural enemy failed in securing their victory of natural Israel, so will the satanic enemies of the
Church be overthrown, and will result in another step to the final overthrow of the Devil.
In this engagement Russia and the U.S.A became involved. Only subsequent events revealed that Russia backed
down after America was placed on a world wide nuclear alert. The world was dangerously close to a
NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST!
President Anwar Sadat‟s peace initiatives are to be highly praised. In 1977, in the Egyptian Parliament, he
declared that there would not be any further war with Israel.

Israel declares a population of 10,000,000. Thousands of Jews have emigrated from Russia.

The Hebrew language is today being restored, after a 2,000-year lapse. It is one of the oldest languages in the
world.

Israel still rejects the Messiah. In America there are now 16,000 Jews who accept Jesus Christ as Messiah.
There are in contrast only 200 in Israel.

75% of the nation is non-religious!


Prostitution is at an epidemic level. So is pornography, an “free-love”. A great proportion of Many Jews are
atheists! Sin is present at an alarming rate.

There are 6,000 synagogues in Israel.

Tourism is a great income earner.

THE GREAT SYNAGOGUE. While travelling through Israel in 1975, I saw foundations of this mighty edifice
being prepared.

[The value of Solomon‟s temple has been estimated to be in excess of $1,000,000,000,000].


To the Jew, the only acceptable site of the temple is Mt. Moriah.

While in Teheran, Iran, in 1975, the minister I was travelling with asked an Orthodox Jew what he was praying
for? He was engaged in prayer at the airport and his unusual method of praying aroused my friend‟s interest. In
the ensuing conversation it was revealed that this Jew believed that God was going to shatter the Mosque of
Omar in a mighty EARTHQUAKE! There was not any shadow of doubt in his mind. He had absolute faith in
this.
However, should the Jews attempt to rebuild a temple on this location, it would be met with violent resistance
from the Arabs who would be equally zealous to rebuild their mosque. A bitter war would ensue.

Should the temple ever be rebuilt, God will not be in it.

The Jews have asked for financial assistance to build an ALTAR for the Great Synagogue. Is this building
going to become an adequate substitution for the envisaged temple worship? A synagogue certainly does NOT
REQUIRE AN ALTAR! Will animal sacrifices be offered in Jerusalem once more? Reports circulating
certainly indicate so. Levitical priests are receiving instruction in ancient temple rites which include the
shedding of animal blood.

In 1980 Israel spent 31.1% of its GNP on defence. This is, one third of the income generated by the nation
during that year was earmarked for defence. It is by far the highest in the world. In spite of this, Israel
continues to grow and prosper. A lot more could be achieved in development were there not the heavy demands
of the military upon its resources.

The year of 1917, in the Moslem calendar was 1335. The illustration of a Turkish coin of that year is shown.
The Arabic numerals are also shown.

THE TURKISH COIN OF 1917.


According to the Moslem calendar, the year 1335 corresponds with that of the Western World, 1917!
Daniel 12:12. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and
thirty days.

The Moslem calendar is originated from the year 622 AD the year of the change of location of Mohammed
from Mecca to Medina.

The year of deliverance was forecast for Jerusalem!

There was no bloodshed on this occasion. This was in glaring contrast to the 24 times of its capture during its
history. Allenby sent six bombers from the Royal Air Force, armed with leaflets for the Turks to surrender.
Being a Christian, he did not desire the carnage of the city or the people occupying it. The result of this mission
was that the Mayor of the city emerged from one of Jerusalem‟s gates, with the keys of the city, and promptly
surrendered them to General Allenby.

GENERAL ALLENBY LIBERATES JERUSALEM

General Allenby entered Jerusalem through the Jaffa Gate on December 11th, 1917, flanked by Australian and
New Zealand troops.
In humility, he entered by foot, in contrast to horse back. Jesus Christ entered Jerusalem the first of the back of a
donkey. At His Second Coming, He will be mounted on a majestic white stallion!

SIGNS OF THE SECOND COMING

The one great single contributing factor to the worldwide famine is the population explosion.

Date Population Doubling Rate


1650 500 Million 200 Years
1850 1.2 Billion 80 Years
1900 1.55 Billion
1920 1.81 Billion

1950 2.5 Billion
1960 3.3 Billion
1975 4 billion 35 Years
1985 5 billion 10 Years
2100 37 Billion

World population figures at the time of Christ are estimated at 200-300 million. Up to 1650 this increased to 500
million [1/2 billion]. This doubled again to 1,000 million, [one billion] by 1850. The doubling to two billion
was attained in 1930. The population has increased, but so also has the rate of increase.
This astronomical multiplication may be illustrated as followed:

If a man worked a month, his pay being 1 cent for the first day, then doubling each day to the end of the month,
that is two cents for the second day, four cents on the third day, ect. Then by the 15th day his pay would be
$163.84, and by the 25th day $167,772.16! His day‟s pay for the last day of the month would be a Phenomenal
$10,737,418.24! His one-month‟s work would yield more than $20,000,000!

EACH DAY‟S WAGES FOR ONE MONTH


In the next 25 years, world population figures will increase by 93%. In the nations of the earth where there are
acute food shortages the increase will rise by a staggering 160%. During 1965 to 1985 the demand on GRAIN
will surge by 50%. In the same period of time, MILK and MILK PRODUCTS will increase 70%, while MEAT
will double to 100%.
On these figures, demographers are forecasting a 2000 AD estimate of between 6.9 to 7.1 billion.
The estimated population of the USA by the year 2000 is 300 million. Half the then population is not born yet!
There are 65% more people on the earth today then there were THIRTY years ago. Of all the people who ever
lived 1 in 25 is alive now and require food.
The population of today will DOUBLE in the next 35 years.
United Nations estimate that 460 million people are hungry and that half of them are children.

There are 2 billion people in the underdeveloped world. 30% to 50% of these are affected by hunger and
malnutrition. 20 to 25% of children die before they reach five years of age.
THERE ARE FIVE BIRTHS ON THE EARTH EVERY TWO SECONDS. That is an increase of 70,000,000
each year. Expressed in another way, this is the doubling of the population of the USA every three years! Or
every three years a new nation the size of America appears on the earth.
India is adding 1,000,000 human beings to the world population increase every month! By the end of the 21st
century there will be 60,000 trillion souls standing on the face of the earth, that is 100 for every square yard of
the planet!
It took thousands of years to produce the first billion people on the earth, less than 100 for the second, less than
30 for the third. The forth billion was attained in just 15 years!

At the world Food Conference in Rome, Italy in 1974, 100 delegated from the UN government agencies, and
private corporations from 130 countries met to discuss the acute world food shortage. No concrete action was
taken by this conference for the millions of human beings threatened with starvation.
Food just simply can not be grown fast enough to feed the hungry mouths.
In July 1921, 5,000,000 died in the Soviet Union. It was then only four years old.
Americans fed more than 11,000,000 Russians at 35,000 relief stations, at this time.
Food shortages and inflation are a worldwide occurrence.
PESTILENCES savagely attack what little harvest there is. For example, an average swarm of locusts will
consume 3,000 TONS OF FOOD A DAY!

Nearly a THIRD OF ALL BABIES BORN will never attain the age of FIVE years due to malnutrition.
INDIA will outstrip China as the densest population nation on earth. By 2,150 it will have 1,600 million. China
will have 1.4 billion by the turn of the century.

ZERO POPULATION GROWTH is expected to be achieved within another 200 years. USA
will attain this first – 276 million – by the year 2035. In 72 years, 2050, world population is expected to top 10
BILLION. By 1990, workers in Britain might be engaging in THREE-DAY working week. Due to advanced
technologies, a reduction of 5,000,000 people can be expected by 1990. People may be required to remain at

school until the age of 25 years. A LICENCE may be required in order to secure employment.

EARTHQUAKES
The earth is moving into an era of increasing earthquake activity.
It is estimated that there are 50,000 earthquakes registered over the face of the planet each year.
ONE SEVERE earthquake strikes the earth each year. It is being shaken more than 1,000,000 times a year.
That is one in every 30 seconds.
During the last 100 years, earthquakes have caused $5,000 million worth of damage.

LISBON 1755. The major quake was of SIX MINUTES duration. It was of such magnitude that it leveled
every major building and 12,000 homes. It being All Saints Day, many people were in attendance at church.
Many of these structures fell, a major loss of life being sustained. 60,000 died as a result.

In 1811/12, in NEW MADRID, the largest earthquake has ever struck America occurred. Chimneys of house
were demolished 400 miles distant.

In the SAN FRANCISCO CALIFORNIAN quake of April, 18, 1906, 700 human beings lost their lives.
Resultant fires raged uncontrollably through the city, causing $400,000,000 damage.

Earthquakes have cost California $6.75 billion in the last 100 years. The San Andreas fault has moved 20 feet.
San Francisco and Los Angeles are moving closer together at the rate of 2 inches a year. A major earthquake in
San Francisco would claim 100,000 lives.

TOKYO, 1923. 700,000 homes were gutted by fire, upwards of half the total buildings of the city were
demolished. 143,000 died in the incident.

The earthquake that shattered MORROCO in 1960 left 12,000 dead.

In 1975 HAWAII was hit by an earthquake that was one of the worst in 75 years. It measured over 7 on the
Richter scale.

In the beginning of 1976, ICELAND and the PACIFIC suffered quakes. They were reported to be the worst
experienced in 20 years.

22,000 people were killed in an earthquake that shook GUATEMALA in October 1976. A further 74,000 were
injured and 1,300,000 were left homeless.

A severe earthquake of 8.2 hit CHINA in July, 1976. 750,000 died.

During the years 1897 to 1946 the average number of earthquakes over 6 on the Richter Scale was THREE per
10 YEARS. In the following decade, that is form 1946 to 1956, this figure had more than DOUBLED TO 7.
1957 to 1967 saw 17. In just one year, 1968 that total exploded to 19. This was in turn again to skyrocket to 21
in 1969. 24 in 1970, 34 in 1971. From 1967 to 1976, earthquakes of a magnitude of seven or greater zoomed to
180!
Earthquakes have claimed approximately 75,000,000 lives directly or indirectly.

In ANCHORAGE, ALASKA on Good Friday, 1964 the most violent earthquake in America‟s history took
place. 115 people died. It struck with the force of 1,200 atomic bombs. The damage was estimated at $3/4
billion, 100 times more that the state of Alaska was purchased for from the Russians 100 years ago.

One of the signs of the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is earthquake activity. Not only would they
increase but there would be earthquakes in places hitherto unaffected by these natural disasters.
Matthew 24:7. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines,
and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
Luke 21:11. And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights
and great signs shall there be from heaven.

Prior to 1948, major earthquake occurrences took place at the ratio of one in five years. Since that time, there
have been several major quakes each year.
The greatest loss of life through an earthquake occurred in IRAN during September, 1978 with 26,000 lives.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 54

During the last 18 YEARS, Iran has recorded 2,000 earthquakes, which have claimed 100,000 lives.

FAMINE
The Bible in Old Testament times records many famines.
436 BC. ROME – Thousands ended their plight by casting themselves headlong into the Tiber
160 AD. ENGLAND – Masses perished of starvation.
192 IRELAND – A nationwide food shortage.
272 BRITAIN.
310 – 40,000.
331 ANTIOCH – A bushel of wheat was sold for 400 pieces of silver. 30,000 bushels of corn was sent from
Rome.
450 ITALY – 450 parents ate their children
695-700 ENGLAND and IRELAND – Human beings died on a large scale, so much so, that men ate each other!
963 IRELAND – Parents exchanged their children for food.
1123 ENGLAND
1193-1196 – In ENGLAND and FRANCE a similar thing happened
1299 RUSSIA – plagued by famine and pestilence.
1347 ITALY – 2/3 population affected
1412-1413 – The greatest drought in the GANGES – Jumne Delta, in INDIA resulted in multitudes dying of
famine.
1600 RUSSIA – 500,000 lost their lives.
1769-1770 – The time of the first INDIAN famine. Ten million died.
1770 BOHEMIA – 168,000 died by famine and pestilence.
1789 FRANCE
1790 INDIA – Parents killed children.
1847 IRELAND – 6 year potato famine. More than 1,000,000 died.
1877-1878 INDIA – 9,000,000 ravaged, 70,000,000 effected.
1877 CHINA - 10,000,000 died
1878 MORROCCO – Mothers ground up bones to feed their children.

Since 1950, major famines have been caused by floods, droughts, civil disorders, locusts, and earthquakes.
ETHIOPIA is constantly faced with famines of gigantic proportions. 200,000 died in 1973.

PESTILENCE. Matthew 24:7. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there
shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
In 1347 the Black Plague swept over the face of the entire earth. It has been estimated that between ¼ to ½ the
whole planet lost their lives. Some cities experienced a death rate of up to 80%.
A FLU VIRUS in 1918 claimed 12,000,000 deaths.
There is also the aspect of Bacteriological, Biological, and Chemical weapons of war. Though gases and nerve
gases have been banned from the cessation of World War 1 there is evidence of reoccurring outbreaks of
violations of the 1925 Geneva Convention in recent times. Only in 1980 did the Soviet Union offend on two
counts.
Control agreements, accepted by the Russians, limited chemical and biological weapons. In 1972, a convention
banned the production and stockpile of biological weapons. American intelligence tracked an accidental release
of anthrax spores at Sverdlovsk. The Soviets admitted the accident from a plant used to manufacture biological
warfare agents. Asphyxiating, and nerve gases were used in the invasion of Afghanistan in blatant violation of
the Geneva chemical warfare protocol [1925]!

LEPROSY has fastened itself on 15,000,000 human beings.


MALARIA is on the increase! In ARFICA 150,000,000 are infected with this plague each year. This disease
claims 1,000,000 lives each year in children before reaching 5 years of age.
In INDIA in 1966, 40,000 people were affected. In 1978, there were 12,000,000.

While in HONDURAS in 1974: with 7,500 cases, rose to 48,000 in 1976.

LOCUST PLAGUES have recently in one swarm alone extended over 40 square miles. Locusts breed every
SIX WEEKS! Swarms can devastate 100 SQUARE MILES in a single night. A swarm covering just one
square mile can consume 14 TONS of grain a DAY!
Without the checking of these breeding grounds, 50 NATIONS, and TWENTY PERCENT of the world‟s
population could be annihilated.

SIGNS OF THE SECOND COMING


Isaiah 19:19-20. In that day shall there be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at
the border thereof to the LORD. And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the LORD of hosts in the land
of Egypt: for they shall cry unto the LORD because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a saviour, and a
great one, and he shall deliver them.
The GREAT PYRAMID at Gizeh is one of the ancient seven wonders of the ancient world.
The massive Bible in Stone has been constructed with a knowledge of several major sciences. It has been scaled
at an inch for a year.
How could it be situated in the midst of the land and at the border thereof, both at the same time?
It is on the border of the Lybian desert, and the exact centre of the quadrant of the Nile Delta. It is located in the
centre of the land mass of the earth. It is exactly equidistant from the North Pole and the centre of the earth.
The workmanship employed is of the highest order.
THAT DAY, refers to the day of the Lord.
The reader is warned against becoming too engrossed, to imeshed in this sign that he does not see the One to
whom the sign points. A similar message is seen in the sign of the heavens. An equal warning is sounded in this
regard. This contains the pattern of redemption revealed by the stars and luminaries of the heavens.

MOTOR VEHICLES. Nahum 2:3,4. he shield of his mighty men is made red, the valiant men are in scarlet:
the chariots shall be with flaming torches in the day of his preparation, and the fir trees shall be terribly shaken.
The chariots shall rage in the streets, they shall jostle one against another in the broad ways: they shall seem like
torches, they shall run like the lightnings.
The fulfilling of this sign is another pointer to the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

THE AEROPLANE. Isaiah 31:5. As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also
he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it.

Revelation 16:17. And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the
temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
Isaiah 60:8,9. Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows? Surely the isles shall wait
for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the
name of the LORD thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee.

RADIO. Job 38:35. Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go, and say unto thee, Here we are?

TELEVISION. Revelation 11:9. And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their
dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

ATOMIC BOMB. Luke 21:26. Men‟s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are
coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

The Greek word for heaven is OURANOS. Uranium is the main constituent element in the Atomic Bomb!
Revelation 13:13. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in
the sight of men,
2 Peter 3:10,12. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass
away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are
therein shall be burned up. Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens
being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

THE NEUTRON BOMB. Matthew 24:21,22. For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the
beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there
should no flesh be saved: but for the elect‟s sake those days shall be shortened.

TIDAL WAVES. Luke 21:26. Men‟s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are
coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
These are caused through undersea earthquakes, explosions, and meteorites.

Revelation 8:8,9. And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into
the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea,
and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

FLYING SAUCERS. Luke 21:11. And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and
pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
I saw a flying saucer prior to my conversion to Christianity in 1959. This was immediately after a motor vehicle
accident in which the car I was travelling rolled 5 ½ times, commencing at 70 miles and hour. After the accident
I said, “God, there is something you want me to do on this earth, for surely I should have been killed in this
crash”. The car was a write off. Having seen the luminous green scour ship, I thought that this was the area in
which I should become involved. I believe in the presence of saucers, of both extraterrestrial and earthly
government origins. It was not their existence that interested me. Rather, I wanted to know their concepts of
God, who they thought Jesus Christ was, and if they knew of His return to this planet.
After my involvement, I have no hesitation in declaring that these vehicles [those of extraterrestrial origin] were
created of the enemy of men‟s souls in an effort to sidetrack them from the truth. In the days that lie ahead,
more sightings, and even further contact with the being that pilot them will greatly increase.
There is much evidence in favour of their existence, even dating back thousands of years. An intelligent human
being would have to accept the abundant evidence. Much information exists on government files in many
nations of the world.

The RESTORATION OF ISRAEL in the earth as a sovereign nation in the earth is a certain and sure sign of the
return of the Son of God.
Ezekiel 36:33-35. Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I
will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded. And the desolate land shall be tilled,
whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by. And they shall say, This land that was desolate is
become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are
inhabited.

THE EGYPTIAN-ASSYRIAN HIGHWAY. Isaiah 19:23. In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to
Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve
with the Assyrians.
This was not fulfilled until two and a half thousand years later. THAT DAY is the day of the Lord.

THE EXPLOSION OF KNOWLEDGE. Daniel 12:4. But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book,
even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
The gigantic increase spiral in travel has skyrocketed with the advent of the commercial Jet Airliner.
Aeroplane travel has doubled in the last decade.
During the first seven months of 1978, US Airlines carried 180,000,000 passengers. This was 16% up on the
previous year. In the same year [1978] the same US Airlines flew 222 billion passenger miles.
The advent of the Jumbo Jet and now the wide bodied jets are making this possible.

UNEMPLOYMENT is a serious problem world wide.

WEATHER. Changing weather patterns could be connected with the conjunction of the planets that is
scheduled for October, 1982. Sun spot activity, earthquakes, cyclones, changing weather patterns and odd
human behaviour will build up and recline from this date.
The current freeze in the northern hemisphere is the worst for over 100 years.

DRUGS have reached epidemic proportions worldwide. There are 230,000 drug addicts in Malaysia.
HAWAII. $350,000,000 drug trade, that realises $3,000 for 0.454 kg on the streets of New York. This is far in

Revelation 16:12-16. And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water
thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits
like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the
false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and
of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief.
Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he

UNUSUAL DEATHS OF THE PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, reveal that there is
an unseen Hand at work in the affairs of men. The following presidents, elected at regular 20-year intervals

The teaching of THE CREATIVE AND REDEMPTIVE WEEK reveal that the world is at the closing period of
an age.
This fact is also borne out by the 120th Jubilee, that is, 120 x 50 = 6,000 years.
The Mohammedan era commenced in 622 AD. It was very soon after this that the Moslems gained control of
Jerusalem. This control was only relinquished by the advent of British General Allenby in 1917. The Turkish
coins minted in that year had the date 1335 on one side and 1917 on the other. That was the last year such coins
were minted.
Matthew 24:34. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
This was the generation that was to see the Nation of Israel restored in the earth. It was not the generation that
Jesus was speaking to. A generation in the Bible is 40 years. In that no man knows the day or the hour of His
return, this is a significant pointer of the Lord‟s return.

THE REVIVAL OF HEALING, SALVATION and the baptism of the Holy Spirit was forecast by the Lord.
Matthew 24:14. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations;
and then shall the end come.
The purpose of the Bible Society is to translate, publish, and to distribute the Bible into every language of the
world. It is a gigantic objective, but it can be achieved. Two different problems arise with publication and
distribution.
To date, the whole Bible has been translated into 273 languages, the New Testament into 472, and gospel
portions into 940. Of course, there are many dialects, within these major languages. This constitutes a total of
1,685 languages as at August 1980. By August 1981, 50,000 Bible were to be published for distribution in
China. Some Chinese Christians, when they receive a copy of the New Testament immediately commenced
committing it to memory.
Currently 10,000 letters have been received in Hong Kong from enquires in Communist China. There has been
definite increase in Christianity in China since 1966. It is estimated that there are 2,000,000 Christians in China
today!
With the world population now standing in excess of 4 billion people, and nearly a quarter being Chinese, there
is still over half the population to reach with the gospel, and estimated 2.5 BILLION!
The Christian church is not keeping up with the GROWING RATE, let alone reaching this generation for Christ.
A supernatural EMPOWERING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT is scheduled to accomplish this mammoth task.
In 1979, 503,000,000 Bibles, New Testaments, and gospel portions were distributed throughout the world.
By spring 1980, 98% of the world‟s people now have the Bible, or part of it in their own language.
There are approximately 5,000 language and dialects in the world. This would leave 3,315 languages to be

translated into their own tongues.


There are 14,000,000 people in Australia. Of these, one could only hazard a guess at the percentage that would
be Born Again.
LETHARGICNESS OF THE END TIME BELIEVERS, forecast for the Laodicean Church, is NOW UPON
US.
Revelation 3:15,16. I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then
because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
1 Timothy 4:1-3. Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith,
giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience
seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to
be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

FALSE CHRISTS AND FALSE PROPHETS are an unmistakable indicator of the nearness of the Lord‟s return.
Matthew 24:24. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders;
insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Luke 17:28-29. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they
planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven,
and destroyed them all.
Ezekiel 16:49,50. Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of
idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they
were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.
SODOMY is revealed as one of the basest sins of the most evil type. Today it is being accepted in society. The
judgment of God will fall on many nations of the earth for this very reason. If God does not destroy San
Francisco and other cities that are great homes of homosexuality, then He is obligated to raise up Sodom and
Gommorah and apologise to them!
Romans 1:27. And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward
another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their
error which was meet.
The reason for this depraved behaviour is shown to be that they did not like to retain God in their knowledge.
God gave them up. God gave them over to a reprobate mind. God loves the sinner, ye He hates the sin. Help is
available for every homosexual. I know many people that have been bound by this hideous thing that have been
totally released by the power of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Matthew 11:20-24. Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because
they repented not: Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were
done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. But I
say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you. And thou,
Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have
been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I say unto you, That it
shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.
A high percentage of ATHIESTS are bound by this foul sin.

Luke 17:26,27. And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat,
they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the
flood came, and destroyed them all.
Here, the Lord Jesus Christ reveals His belief in the flood of Noah, and stamps the Biblical narrative as
authentic.
The original language carries the connotation here, marrying wives and giving them up.
MARRIAGE is the security of any society. When this foundation crumbles, that society is of the way out.
It is to be noted that regular business transactions were being undertaken, when the rain fell. There was no
special warning.
So, likewise, shall it also be in this day. There will be no warning. Judgment will strike suddenly!
Genesis 6:5,11. And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of
the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was
filled with violence.
2 Timothy 3:1-5. This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of
their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without
natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors,
heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the
power thereof: from such turn away.

THE AWAKENING OF CHINA. The sleeping giant of China is beyond the age of stirring. She is already
beginning to awake. It has been rightly said that when she awakes she will shake the world.
She has opened diplomatic relations with America, much to the Soviets disdain.
With the signing of a peace treaty with JAPAN, the alliance will become a powerful military and economic
body. These two nations have signed a $20 billion, 8 year agreement. A $4 billion steel mill is to be
constructed in Shanghai. China can supply the manpower, Japan, the technology. During the past decade, final
steps have been taken to complete the China Pakistan section of a highway to the Middle East. This 800km link
is a bitumen construction, and is a two lane highway. 24,500 Pakistanis and 40,000 Chinese were engaged on
the project.
China now had direct access by road to the Middle East!
Revelation 16:12. And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof
was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
Revelation 9:13-21. And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar
which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in
the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a
month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two
hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them
that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as
the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third
part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. For
their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with
them they do hurt. And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works
of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of
wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries,
nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
CHINA HAS NUCLEAR WEAPONS

WARS AND RUMOURS OF WARS


World War II, like World War I, was the war that was going to END ALL WARS!
Since 1945, 25 million people have been killed in wars! 133 wars have transpired in which 80 nations have
been involved.
There has not been one day free of war since the cessation of World War II. Wars are being fought at the
average of twelve a day.
The Soviet Union has granted $900 million of military weapons to the Ethiopian revolutionaries. Russia‟s
involvement is obvious. Not only so, it is predicted. It is interesting to note that Russia has only provided
military support. It has provided nothing in comparison to its arms commitment. The West has supplied food,
as well as the FAO, to the starving populous.

SECTION 6

THE SEVEN SEALS

FROM 1948 TO THE PERFECTION OF THE CHURCH. This period of time is APPROXIMATELY eighty-
two years in length. It is the PREPARATION time for the BRIDE OF CHRIST. These events are detailed on
the green section of the End-Time chart.
1 Corinthians 14:8. For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?
Revelation 19:7. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and
his wife hath made herself ready.

Luke 12:41-48. Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all? And the
Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to
give them their portion of meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find
so doing. Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath. But and if that servant say
in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and
drink, and to be drunken; The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an
hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
And that servant, which knew his lord‟s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be
beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with
few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have
committed much, of him they will ask the more.

On 14th MAY, 1948, ISRAEL declared her independence in the recreated state of Israel. This was the FIG
TREE putting forth its leaves. It was the time when the world would know that summer, the END OF THE
WORLD, was nigh! This generation was to contain all things written concerning END TIME EVENTS. It was
the BEGINNING of the End Time. It was the birth pangs of labour.
Matthew 24:8. All these are the beginning of sorrows. The word sorrow is literally BIRTH PANGS.
1948 also saw a further development of the restoration revival bringing the people of God into PRESENT
TRUTH.
2 Peter 1:12. Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye
know them, and be established in the present truth.
Acts 3:19-21. Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of
refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was
preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath
spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.
Joel 2:23-32. Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the
former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in
the first month. And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil. And I will
restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my
great army which I sent among you. And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the
LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed. And ye shall
know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall
never be ashamed. And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your
sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. And I will shew
wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into
darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. And it shall come
to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in
Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.
1 Kings 18:41-46. And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 61
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 62

rain. So Ahab went up to eat and to drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he cast himself down
upon the earth, and put his face between his knees, And said to his servant, Go up now, look toward the sea.
And he went up, and looked, and said, There is nothing. And he said, Go again seven times. And it came to pass
at the seventh time, that he said, Behold, there ariseth a little cloud out of the sea, like a man‟s hand. And he
said, Go up, say unto Ahab, Prepare thy chariot, and get thee down, that the rain stop thee not. And it came to
pass in the mean while, that the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. And Ahab
rode, and went to Jezreel. And the hand of the LORD was on Elijah; and he girded up his loins, and ran before
Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.
One of the principal aspects of this visitation was the restoration of PRAISE AND WORSHIP.
Zechariah 10:1-3. Ask ye of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make bright
clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field. For the idols have spoken vanity, and the
diviners have seen a lie, and have told false dreams; they comfort in vain: therefore they went their way as a
flock, they were troubled, because there was no shepherd. Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I
punished the goats: for the LORD of hosts hath visited his flock the house of Judah, and hath made them as his
goodly horse in the battle.
Joel 2:23. Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the
former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in
the first month.
[This is the SEVENTH month of the sacred year.] The word former in the Hebrew language in MOREH. This
word has three connotations. Firstly, it means EARLY. Secondly, it carries the aspect of TEACHING.
Thirdly, it conveys the thought of an ARCHER.
It is the third application that is of vital interest here.
Revelation 6:1-2. And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of
thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on
him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
THE RIDER OF THE WHITE HORSE IS AN ARCHER.
This word comes from a root word that means to throw, especially an ARROW. That is, to shoot. In a
figurative sense it reveals to POINT OUT, as if by AIMING THE FINGER, to TEACH.

By the process of deduction it will be seen that it was the first beast, the LION, that is associated with the FIRST
SEAL.
Revelation 4:7. And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a
face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.
It is the Lamb that opens the first seal. It is He also that opens all of the seals.
When the first seal was torn from the scroll, the lion roared with a thunderous voice, COME! The lion did not
say to John come and see. Rather his command was to the FIRST BEAST, the white horse, to come, to ride out
on the pages of history.
As this magnificent white stallion appears, the reader, together with the apostle John, observes that his rider
carries a BOW.
The white horse and his rider are warlike. They are fighters. Warriors. Both horse and rider charge boldly onto
the scene of human history. Neither one is timid. Both have been prepared for this moment of time. It will also
be noted that the rider of this majestic steed wears a CROWN upon his head. The crown is the WREATH OF A
CONQUEROR.
The combined purpose of horse and rider was to WIN THE BATTLE and WIN THE WAR. The rider is
determined to win. Nothing will stand in his path. Only with such an attitude, one of the singleness of heart and
eye, is success possible.
Habakkuk 3:9. Thy bow was made quite naked, according to the oaths of the tribes, even thy word. Selah.
Thou didst cleave the earth with rivers.
The bow unmistakenly is the WORD OF GOD.
The opening of the first seal is associated with WORSHIP AND PRAISE. This is a very significant point,
worthy of observation.

The BACKGROUND to the opening of the first seal is as follows.


Revelation 5. And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the
backside, sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to
open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was
able to open the book, neither to look thereon. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open
and to read the book, neither to look thereon. And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion
of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 63

Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into
all the earth. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. And when
he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one
of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song,
saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed
us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our
God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels
round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten
thousand, and thousands of thousands; Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive
power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. And every creature which is
in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I
saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb
for ever and ever. And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped
him that liveth for ever and ever.
Here is the first sight of the SEVEN SEALED BOOK. It is held in the right hand of God Almighty, Who is
seated upon the throne.
The book was NOT AS BOOKS TODAY. Rather, it was in the form of a scroll. Each seal here referred to was
a section of the scroll, or entire book. These were rolled together, one upon another. Therefore in order to get
to the third seal, it would be necessary to unroll the first and second, the second would have to be removed or
opened in order to get the third, ect. The book is said to be written within and on the backside. This shows that
its contents were complete. Nothing need be added. Nothing need be removed. This book is the SEVEN
SEALED BOOK OF REDEMPTION. It contains the knowledge of God‟s dealing with his people and the
world in the last days of time. Those days are the days of the present generation, the generation that will see the
return of the Lord Jesus Christ to this planet.
This book is therefore the title deed of the earth. The title deed has always been in the possession of God. It
still is. It always will be!
Psalm 24:1. The earth is the LORD‟S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
The world is in the POSSESSION OF THE LAMB NOW!

This event is one of the most profound in the history of the entire universe. As the observer is caught in the
majesty of the setting, his attention is disturbed by a thunderous voice. It roars, “Who is worthy to OPEN THE
BOOK and to LOOSE THE SEVEN SEALS thereof?”. All present wait with baited breath. Attention is total.
Concentration is undivided. The atmosphere is electric. There is no answer! The breathing of every creature
gets faster. Hearts are beating. Now are thumping in chests all around the throne. Who will respond? Who
will move first? The awesomeness of the silent moment is deafening. Who will respond to the challenge? Is
there just one creature that will step forward and take the book from the Creator of the Universe? Would you?
Oh, the sense of inferiority. The felling of shame. The pangs of unworthiness. Not one soul moves. He dare
not! Every being freezes in the intense holiness of God!
Will JOHN step forward? He is the one to whom the Book of Revelation is given. He is the apostle of love.
All eyes focus on this giant of Christianity. Will he loose the seals and give to the church the knowledge
contained in the scroll? What is that now appearing on the sober countenance of the man who leaned of the
breast of the Lord Jesus? Could it be? It is! Tears are coursing down his face. A muffled sob begins to break
through his lips. He is visibly shaken. The silence of heaven is shattered by the emotional upheaval in John‟s
breast. No, he can not take to book. He dare not even look upon it. The observer begins to realise the extent of
this situation. If no one can take that book, HUMANITY IS DOOMED. Redemption is an impossibility.
Mankind is lost forever in his fallen state.

Attention now turns towards the great prophets of the Old Testament. ELIJAH is there. MOSES, the great
deliverer is there. DAVID the greatest king of Israel. ENOCH, the man who walked with God. Each head
bows in succession. Inability is felt in every human frame. Surely somebody will be found. Something deep
inside says not to give up hope. What of the archangels? Michael? Gabriel? Cherubim? Seraphim? No one
moves! The silence is deafening! Is there some creature under the earth? The weeping of the apostle now
increases to deep groaning from the depths of his being.
SUDDENLY! A crystal clear voice pierces the haze of hopelessness as a ray of light bursts through grey clouds
on a gloomy day. WEEP NOT! Will hope arise out of hopelessness? Will hope again pay off? Will
perseverance be rewarded? Will determination be rewarded?
YES! The mighty quality of endurance has reaped its reward. All is not lost! Every neck cranes! Where is this
One? Where is He that has been found worthy to take the book and loose the seven seals thereof? Every ear is
intent, waiting for the answer.
The LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH, the ROOT OF DAVID – He has prevailed to OPEN THE BOOK.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 64

Every eye is fixed upon the throne.


A LAMB comes into view. A Lamb as it had been slain. All present look for a lion, and behold a Lamb. Who
is this Lamb?
John 1:29. The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh
away the sin of the world.
The Lamb is none other than the LORD JESUS CHRIST!
What did it take, what was the dreadful price to take away the sin of the world? The Blood upon the chest of the
Lamb was the purchase price!
Acts 20:28. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made
you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
1 Peter 1:18-19. Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold,
from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as
of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
This One had prevailed to open the book. This One has prevailed to loose the seven seals thereof. Praise Him!
Praise Him! PRAISE HIM! Praise the sacrificial Lamb. Oh, the glory of the cross of Calvary. Jesus has been
found worthy. Jesus alone had the authority to TAKE THE BOOK, LOOSE ITS SEALS and REVEAL ITS
CONTENTS.
How true this is today. Only Christ can give His people understanding. Unless He opens the heart by the
revelation of the Holy Spirit, there is no understanding.
Luke 24:27,44,45. And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures
the things concerning himself. And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was
yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and
in the psalms, concerning me. Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures.
Matthew 16:15-18. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou
art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon
Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also
unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail
against it.
Human understanding is insufficient. There must of necessity be the revealing of the Holy Spirit. The key to
understanding lies with the Holy Spirit. He is the custodian of God‟s knowledge. Knowing the entire Bible,
even committing it to memory, is still not the complete answer. Studying Greek is an obvious benefit, but the
KEY LIES WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.
It is of vital concern for every believer to understanding that the church is built on REVELATION
KNOWLEDGE, not human intellect.
Make no mistake. Jesus alone has the authority to take the book from the right hand of him that sat upon the
throne. No man has the ability to break any seal. That privilege belongs to the slain Lamb of God, and to Him
alone.

The atmosphere of heaven is now filled with ADORATION AND PRAISE. Every creature in the arena of glory
shouts, WORTHY IS THE LAMB! The air becomes electrified as the Lamb receives the greatest ovation the
universe has ever known. The elders have been redeemed. The living creatures say Amen!
This great crescendo of WORSHIP takes place immediately BEFORE THE OPENING OF THE SEALS. It
actually PRECIPITATES the opening of the seals. It is in RESPONSE to this praise that the Lamb breaks the
first seal. The same pattern is seen here in the CHRISTIAN‟S APPROACH TO GOD, both individually, and in
corporate worship. PRAISE PREPARES the way for the OPENING OF THE WORD OF THE LORD. It also
prepares the heart of the worshipper to RECEIVE the Word of God.
JUDAH MEANS PRAISE.
Isaiah 29:11,12. And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men
deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: And the
book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned. vs.
18,24. And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of
obscurity, and out of darkness. They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that
murmured shall learn doctrine.
Isaiah 29:1. Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David dwelt! add ye year to year; let them kill sacrifices.
Ariel means a lion. David is here mentioned. This is indeed very familiar with the passage in Revelation 5.
“THE LION OF GOD”
Verses 6-9. Thou shalt be visited of the LORD of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with
storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire. And the multitude of all the nations that fight against
Ariel, even all that fight against her and her munition, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision.
It shall even be as when an hungry man dreameth, and, behold, he eateth; but he awaketh, and his soul is empty:

or as when a thirsty man dreameth, and, behold, he drinketh; but he awaketh, and, behold, he is faint, and his
soul hath appetite: so shall the multitude of all the nations be, that fight against mount Zion.

There is to be an OPENING OF THE SEALED BOOK in the time of WARFARE. This points to the
emergence of Israel as a nation in 1948 and subsequent years.

Verse 13 is quoted by the Lord Jesus in relation to worship!


Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour
me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
Verse 19. The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy
One of Israel.
Matthew 15:1-11. Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying, Why do thy
disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. But he
answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? For God
commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.
But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited
by me; And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God
of none effect by your tradition. Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth
nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they
do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. And he called the multitude, and said unto
them, Hear, and understand: Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of
the mouth, this defileth a man.
Let the believer no longer defile himself any longer by that which proceeds from his mouth, but obey the first
and great commandment, thereby discovering the POWER OF TRUE WORSHIP, the power of the purification
of the heart and life, the power that is able to transform him into the GLORIOUS IMAGE OF THE SON OF
GOD.

Jesus was questioned by the religious people of his day as to why he transgressed the tradition of the elder. He
pointed out that it was they themselves, though not realising it, who were indeed transgressing the
commandment of God by their tradition. Their TRADITIONAL METHOD OF WORSHIP WAS IN VAIN.
Religious pulpiteers have reduced the commandment of God to have no effect through their tradition. Jesus
asserted that cold, dead, formal, silent worship was in fact HYPOCRISY.
John 4:24. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
When worshipped, God was to be worshipped with ALL THE HEART AND SOUL.
Mark 12:30. And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy
mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
Proverbs 27:21. As the fining pot for silver, and the furnace for gold; so is a man to his praise.

Man indeed is a strange being. He will enjoy a football match by shouting, cheering, and on occasion even
throw his hat into the air when his team scores. He gets excited and jumps us and down when his horse flashes
by the post at the races. Of told he was fanatical, he would violently object, explaining that this was common
behaviour for such an occasion.

I shall never forget the 27th January, 1962, when my wife and I were married. This was the very day that Peter
Snell broke the world mile record at Cook‟s Gardens in Wanganui, N.Z. As we were walking down the then
deserted main street, just one block away from the excitement, a thunderous roar broke out. Snell was on his
last lap. This was the shout of victory. The crowd, sensing that a world record was in sight, urging the would-
be- record-breaker on with every stride. I turned to Lois and said, “Oh, that men would praise the Lord like
that!” The crowd was certainly enthusiastic. The English word, ENTHUSIASTIC, comes from the two Greek
words, EN meaning in theos, GOD. Literally then, the word means one who is in God. If there were any people
in all of God‟s creation that had the right to become emotional, it is the born again Christian, for HE ALONE IS
IN GOD!

The emotion that is in man was put there by the God that created him. It was originally put there to express
heartfelt worship to the Lord. It was put there that the first commandment might be fulfilled.
It was a similar shout that felled the walls of Jericho under Joshua.
This same emotional man, when approaching God, upon entering the threshold of a church, puts on a religious
mask, and will not smile or be happy. It is explained by the elders that this is not the thing to do. This is not
tradition. The concept is that the closer man gets to God the more sombre, silent and sullen he becomes.
NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH! In fact, the exact opposite is the case.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 66

There is not one verse in the Bible that tells man to be silent in his worship of the Lord. It is impossible to
worship God in silence!
Psalm 115:17. The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence.
Psalm 16:11. Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are
pleasures for evermore.

This fact is again reinforced in the life of the Lord Jesus. It is all the more magnificent when one remembers
that our Lord was entering Jerusalem to be crucified. No doubt the reality of death, and the horror of the
crucifixion weighed heavily in his heart.
Luke 19:29-48. And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called the
mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples, Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at
your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and bring him hither. And if any
man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him. And they
that were sent went their way, and found even as he had said unto them. And as they were loosing the colt, the
owners thereof said unto them, Why loose ye the colt? And they said, The Lord hath need of him. And they
brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon. And as he went,
they spread their clothes in the way. And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of
Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty
works that they had seen; Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven,
and glory in the highest. And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke
thy disciples. And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones
would immediately cry out. And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, Saying, If thou
hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid
from thine eyes. For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and
compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children
within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy
visitation. And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought;
Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves. And he
taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy him,
And could not find what they might do: for all the people were very attentive to hear him.
Verses 43 and 44 are very similar to a passage found in the Old Testament.
Deuteronomy 28:47,48. Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of
heart, for the abundance of all things; Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send
against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron
upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.

It is to be remembered that this call to serve God joyfully was under the law! How much more then should the
New Testament believer worship the Lord with gladness of heart.
Joel 1:12. The vine is dried up, and the fig tree languisheth; the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the
apple tree, even all the trees of the field, are withered: because joy is withered away from the sons of men.
Romans 14:17. For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the
Holy Ghost.
Galatians 5:22. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

It is necessary to observe here that the Lord Jesus was mounted on a colt, as He entered Jerusalem. As he
approached the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began in their JOY to
rejoice and praise God for all the mighty works that they had seen. This was much to the disgust of the cold,
formal, sober-faced religionists. To them this emotional outburst was not to be tolerated. This was certainly not
dignity. Besides, it could get out of hand.
They objected to the Lord: Master, rebuke your disciples. His response is an indication of the value that our
Lord places on WORSHIP FROM THE HEART.
Indeed, the Father seeketh such to worship him. The Christian is not told of many things in the Bible that the
Lord seeks. Here is one of them – WORSHIPPERS. In the verses following it is seen that Jesus prophesies
destruction to the established mode of worship. He goes a step further and explains that even the temple, in
which worship was carried out, was to fall. The reason for his was that the people KNEW NOT THE TIME OF
THEIR VISITATION!
Jesus entered the temple and cleansed it. He affirmed that it was intended as a house of prayer, a place for
worship.
This even parallels today. The worshippers who praise the Lord in spirit and truth draw unkind criticism form
the religious. Expressions as fanaticism, going too far, emotionalism, too heavenly minded, are common place.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 67

As the stones of the spiritual temple are being formed in this day, they will be like the stones of the road, they
will BURST INTO CHEERS! These spiritual stones are today recognising the flow of the Spirit, they
understand that this is the TIME OF THE VISITATION.
It was KING DAVID who asked the Lord to restore unto him the JOY of God‟s salvation. Psalm 51:12.

Reader, have you been critical of the moving of the Holy Ghost in this day? Many are looking for God to move
again as he has done in the past. He will not do it. This is a new day. This is a new visitation. REVIVAL is
finding out what God is doing and then moving with Him. Men regularly praise God for what he has done, and
for what he will do. Seldom will they thank God for what he is doing in their day. Do not miss this day of
visitation.
The believer is called today to offer unto the Lord spiritual sacrifices.
1 Peter 2:5. Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual
sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
Hebrews 13:15. By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our
lips giving thanks to his name.
Isaiah 28:9-13. Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that
are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept;
line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: For with stammering lips and another tongue will
he speak to this people. To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is
the refreshing: yet they would not hear. But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept
upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward,
and be broken, and snared, and taken.
Verse 12 states that this visitation would NOT be received. The visitation is the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
The experience was given by the Lord in order that his people might WORSHIP him in SPIRIT and TRUTH. It
is to this section of the Scriptures that the Apostle Paul refers, when speaking of singing, praying and blessing
with the Spirit. The chapter 14 of 1 Corinthians is dealing with the vocal gifts of the spirit, with a particular
treatment to the use of speaking in other tongues.
1 Corinthians 14:21. In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this
people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord.

Another VISITATION is spoken of in Isaiah 29:6. Thou shalt be visited of the LORD of hosts with thunder,
and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire. In Verse 5 it
declares, Moreover the multitude of thy strangers shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones
shall be as chaff that passeth away: yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly.
Isaiah 25:4,5. For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the
storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall. Thou shalt bring
down the noise of strangers, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud: the branch of
the terrible ones shall be brought low.
From the section there are certain words and phrases to be noted. THE SEALED BOOK. VAIN WORSHIP.
TRUE WORSHIP. THE OPENING OF THE BOOK. THE INCREASE OF THE JOY OF THE LORD. THE
LION OF GOD. DAVID. THE VISITATION OF THE SPIRIT. THE VISITATION OF THUNDER. THE
TERRIBLE ONES. THE WAR OF SUDDEN DESTRUCTION. MOUNT ZION.

THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS. This feast began on the first day of the seventh month. The first day is
indicative of the BEGINNING of the end time generation. Seven, is prophetic of the END TIME. The trumpet
is symbolical of the PREACHING of the Word of God.
Isaiah 58:1. Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and
the house of Jacob their sins.
The purpose of this feast was that the saints of God might be gathered together to PREPARE themselves for the
approaching DAY OF ATONEMENT. The Day of Atonement was the greatest day in the history of Israel.
Numbers 10:3. And when they shall blow with them, all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the
door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
Psalm 50:5. Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.
Hebrews 13:15. By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our
lips giving thanks to his name.
The DOOR speaks of the Lord Jesus Christ.
John 10:9. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
Genesis 49:10. The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh
come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 68

At this present time in the history of the church, there is a mighty GATHERING together unto Jesus. Not a
gathering to any man, denomination or organisation, but a gathering to Shiloh, the Lord Jesus.
As in the Old Testament times, Christians are hearing the call of the trumpet and are preparing themselves for
the antitypical day of atonement – the marriage of the Lamb and the manifestation of the SONS OF GOD.
Nehemiah 8:1-3, 5-12. And all the people gathered themselves together as one man into the street that was
before the water gate; and they spake unto Ezra the scribe to bring the book of the law of Moses, which the
LORD had commanded to Israel. And Ezra the priest brought the law before the congregation both of men and
women, and all that could hear with understanding, upon the first day of the seventh month. And he read
therein before the street that was before the water gate from the morning until midday, before the men and the
women, and those that could understand; and the ears of all the people were attentive unto the book of the law.
And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people; (for he was above all the people;) and when he opened
it, all the people stood up: And Ezra blessed the LORD, the great God. And all the people answered, Amen,
Amen, with lifting up their hands: and they bowed their heads, and worshipped the LORD with their faces to the
ground. Also Jeshua, and Bani, and Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodijah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah,
Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, and the Levites, caused the people to understand the law: and the people stood in their
place. So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand
the reading.
And Nehemiah, which is the Tirshatha, and Ezra the priest the scribe, and the Levites that taught the people,
said unto all the people, This day is holy unto the LORD your God; mourn not, nor weep. For all the people
wept, when they heard the words of the law. Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the
sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be
ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength. So the Levites stilled all the people, saying, Hold your
peace, for the day is holy; neither be ye grieved. And all the people went their way to eat, and to drink, and to
send portions, and to make great mirth, because they had understood the words that were declared unto them.

Here, there is a gathering together of all the people in the first day of the seventh month. This antitypically,
speaks of the BEGINNING OF THE END TIME GENERATION. This was when Israel was restored as a
sovereign nation in the earth again. This was 1948.
This became prophetic of the uniting of the Body of Christ, into a MATURE, PERFECT man, unto the
FULNESS OF THE MEASURE of the stature of Christ.
Ephesians 4:13. Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a
perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
The revelation of the COMING TOGETHER OF THE BODY OF CHRIST was given by the Lord in 1948!
Psalm 133. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the
precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron‟s beard: that went down to the
skirts of his garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for
there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.
The blessing is automatic. It does not have to be asked for.

It is a mark of praise to UNIFY, not divide. When this unity is achieved, the blessing of the Lord is
commanded.
2 Chronicles 5:2, 3, 12-14. Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel, and all the heads of the tribes, the
chief of the fathers of the children of Israel, unto Jerusalem, to bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD out
of the city of David, which is Zion. Wherefore all the men of Israel assembled themselves unto the king in the
feast which was in the seventh month. Also the Levites which were the singers, all of them of Asaph, of Heman,
of Jeduthun, with their sons and their brethren, being arrayed in white linen, having cymbals and psalteries and
harps, stood at the east end of the altar, and with them an hundred and twenty priests sounding with trumpets:)
It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and
thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of
musick, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was
filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD; So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the
cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of God.
Haggai 2:9. The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in
this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.
Solomon, who is a picture of the Holy Spirit, gathered the people together in the feast of the seventh month, the
feast of Tabernacles. The feast of Tabernacles was the greatest of the three feasts of the Lord. It was the most
NOISY, the most JOYFUL, the most REJOICING. It was because of the harvest that had been gathered in.
It is important to draw to the attention of the believer, that Solomon‟s Temple was dedicated in the Feast of
Tabernacles, NOT the feast of PENTECOST. The one hundred and twenty trumpets therefore, do not point
primarily to the day of Pentecost, but rather to the ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTIETH JUBILEE. This time
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 69

period was the cause for great rejoicing. It was the time when FAMILIES WERE REUNITED, DEBTS WERE
CANCELLED, MORTGAGES RELEASED.
This occurred every fifty years. It was the greatest time of joy in all Israel‟s history. This experience for the
church has not yet taken place. It shows the gathering of all in FAMILIES, the TOTAL EXPIATION of all sin.
It was when the singers, musicians and trumpeters all made one sound in praising and thanking the Lord, in the
midst of this thunderous anthem of praise, that the glory of the Lord descended upon the people. Actually, it
was this combined praise that PRECIPITATED THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD.

A similar setting is seen in the New Testament.


Acts 2:1-4. And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And
suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they
were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And
they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them
utterance.

This section of Scripture needs to be held in relation to Luke 24:49-53. And, behold, I send the promise of my
Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. And he led
them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. And it came to pass, while he
blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. And they worshipped him, and returned to
Jerusalem with great joy: And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.
Once again, it was PRAISE that brought the glory of God‟s presence.
As praise and worship ascended to the throne of God, the glory of God came down.

Here, two illustrations of the principle of praise are shown.


Psalm 22:3. But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
This is further seen in the following three scriptures.
Job 36:27,28. For he maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof:
Which the clouds do drop and distil upon man abundantly.
Ecclesiastes 11:3. If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: The natural principle is
here applied to the spiritual principle. Heat from the sun causes evaporation, resulting in the rising of water
vapour. They in turn form clouds, which, when full of rain, empty themselves upon the earth.
Jeremiah 10:13. When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the
vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of
his treasures.
In the spiritual application, the believer‟s PRAISE is likened to water vapour. The more praise that ascends to
heaven, the greater the clouds, the more distilling of the glory and presence of the Lord upon the earth.

Again, God inhabits the praises of his people.


The WATER GATE typifies the Holy Spirit. He has come to glorify the Lord Jesus, and to open the Word of
the Lord to his people that they may understand the sense thereof.
Nehemiah 8:5,6. Exactly parallel Revelation 5 earlier referred to.
The Word of God was read from morning to midday. This shows a tremendous respect and hunger for the
understanding of the Scriptures.
THE SCRIPTURED WERE OPENED ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE SEVENTH MONTH. When Ezra
opened the book he blessed God. He was above the people. In like manner the Lord Jesus Christ is above his
people. The response of the people was a hearty Amen! They lifted up their hands and worshipped the Lord.
This is true worship. This is worship in SPIRIT and TRUTH. The people were understanding the word of the
Lord and were most appreciative for it.
WORSHIP then, is associated with the OPENING OF THE BOOK. This is seen both here in Nehemiah 8 and
Revelation 5.

The FAT and the SWEET of verse 10, speak of the Communion service, and are symbolical of the BODY and
BLOOD of the Lord Jesus. There was a concern for those outside, for those for whom nothing was prepared. A
truly balanced Christian life must result in a concern for those who know not the Lord.

This revival was attended with the JOY OF THE LORD. The believer is here told that the joy of the Lord
would be his strength.
Proverbs 17:22. A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
Proverbs 15:13,15. A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is
broken. All the days of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 70

1 Corinthians 10:16. The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The
bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?
The cup is a cup of blessing, not sorrow.
In Nehemiah 8:12 the people made a great mirth. The Hebrew word means to be FULL OF GLEE. The reason
for this was that they had understood the Word of the Lord. When people see and understand what God is doing
among them, there is, without exception, great gladness of heart.
The multitudes were full of joy in Luke 19:37. This was because they had seen and understood what God was
doing among them. They were most appreciative of the moving of the Spirit. They knew the time of their
visitation. From hearts of joy, the followers of the Lord burst into spontaneous praise.
The reason for the drought, barrenness and desolation was a withering away joy. This is in direct contrast with a
sudden loss, as severing. The root Hebrew word for withering means to be ASHAMED, CONFUSED or
DISAPPOINTED. Confusion and disappointment are often the reason for the loss of joy.

The first thing to disappear in a Christian‟s life when his heart begins to grow cold in his relation to the Lord is
JOY.
Joel 2:23,24. Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the
former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in
the first month. And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil.
The first month of the agricultural year was the SEVENTH month of the sacred year. Therefore, the former and
latter rains were to descend in the seventh month. The seventh month is prophetic of the time period of this
generation. Not only was there to be an outpouring of former rain, or just latter rain. A DOUBLE PORTION
was forecast for the seventh month.
James 5:7. Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the
precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.

The ARROWS of the archer have been shot into the ends of the world.
2 Kings 13:15-17. And Elisha said unto him, Take bow and arrows. And he took unto him bow and arrows.
And he said to the king of Israel, Put thine hand upon the bow. And he put his hand upon it: and Elisha put his
hands upon the king‟s hands. And he said, Open the window eastward. And he opened it. Then Elisha said,
Shoot. And he shot. And he said, The arrow of the LORD‟S deliverance, and the arrow of deliverance from
Syria: for thou shalt smite the Syrians in Aphek, till thou have consumed them.

In the beginning of the seventh month the former, or TEACHING rain was to fall. The Lord would open His
word to His ministers who in turn would explain it to the people. This was the time of the early rain.

Ezra 3:1,4,6,10-13. And when the seventh month was come, and the children of Israel were in the cities, the
people gathered themselves together as one man to Jerusalem. They kept also the feast of tabernacles, as it is
written, and offered the daily burnt offerings by number, according to the custom, as the duty of every day
required; From the first day of the seventh month began they to offer burnt offerings unto the LORD. But the
foundation of the temple of the LORD was not yet laid. And when the builders laid the foundation of the temple
of the LORD, they set the priests in their apparel with trumpets, and the Levites the sons of Asaph with cymbals,
to praise the LORD, after the ordinance of David king of Israel. And they sang together by course in praising
and giving thanks unto the LORD; because he is good, for his mercy endureth for ever toward Israel. And all the
people shouted with a great shout, when they praised the LORD, because the foundation of the house of the
LORD was laid. But many of the priests and Levites and chief of the fathers, who were ancient men, that had
seen the first house, when the foundation of this house was laid before their eyes, wept with a loud voice; and
many shouted aloud for joy: So that the people could not discern the noise of the shout of joy from the noise of
the weeping of the people: for the people shouted with a loud shout, and the noise was heard afar off.
In the SEVENTH month, which is prophetic of the end time, the people were gathered together as one man.
This is a beautiful description of unity. Cities are composed of families. This is symbolic, of the many LOCAL
CHURCHES located in a city.

This is prophetic of the answer to the Lord Jesus‟ prayer.


John 17:21-23. That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in
us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them;
that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and
that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
From the beginning of the FIRST day of the SEVENTH month the people began to WORSHIP the Lord. The
feast of TABERNACLES was observed. It is highly significant to observe that the FOUNDATION of the
temple was not yet laid.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 71

1 Corinthians 3:10,11. According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have
laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For
other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Here, the foundation of the temple is the LORD JESUS. This foundation is already laid. Also, in the birth of
the early church, there was a foundation laid, which comprised the Lord Jesus and APOSTLES and
PROPHETS.

As Ezra was a prophet of restoration, the reference to the foundation is already laid, refers to the end time
church, the church of restoration.
Ephesians 2:20-22. And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being
the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
Isaiah 9:6,7. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of
Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon
his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The
zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
The government shall be upon his shoulder. The shoulder is a part of the BODY. The TWO SHOULDERS
therefore speak of the ministry of the APOSTLE and PROPHET. There is a governmental and foundational
ministry.
As the foundation of the house of the Lord is being re-established in this day, the church can confidently expect
a restoration of the mighty apostolic and prophetic mantle. Their will be a ministry of JUDGEMENT. Their
function will be to adjust and perfect the church for the coming of the Lord Jesus. They will bear an authority in
God that has been unparalleled. These men are being prepared behind the scenes today for their mighty
ministry. Their ministry will bring great STABILITY to the body of Christ.

The priests were clothed in their apparel. Trumpets, cymbals, praise, after the ordinance of King David are
employed. Again, the principle is seen that GOD INHABITS THE PRAISES OF HIS PEOPLE. The people
shouted with a great shout of joy. The elders began weeping. This was a highly emotional scene. The noise of
weeping and the noise of shouting of joy could not be discerned. If this is true of the relaying of the foundation
of the temple in TYPE, how much more will be the rejoicing, with the restoration of the FOUNDATIONAL
MINISTRIES of the APOSTLES and PROPHETS, in the TRUE TEMPLE, the body of the Lord Jesus Christ.

This is in complete character with the FEAST OF TABERNACLES.

When one considers what was accomplished under the showers of the early on the day of Pentecost, then what
rejoicing and harvest there will be when the church experiences both early and latter rain in the same months!
Under the early rain believers staggered about as drunk men. They spoke in tongues. Onlookers scoffed,
criticised, were amazed, and were in doubt.
Job 38:6,7. Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; When the
morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

As in the first miracle performed by the Lord Jesus, God has kept the best wine till now.
John 2:10. And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well
drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.
In the end of the ministry of the Lord Jesus, there will be another marriage. This time His own. Wine will flow
in abundance. The joy will be unbelievable.

Luke 4:16-23. And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into
the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. And there was delivered unto him the book of the
prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the
Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the
brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them
that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the
minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he
began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears. And all bare him witness, and wondered
at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph‟s son? And he said
unto them, Ye will surely say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal thyself: whatsoever we have heard done in
Capernaum, do also here in thy country.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 72

Here, in the beginning of the ministry of the Lord Jesus on earth, his first act was to OPEN THE BOOK! His
action is prophetic of what was to transpire in the restored church of the last day. This would equate with his
heavenly ministry namely LOOSING THE SEALS from the seven sealed book. When He opened the book, the
Lord Jesus said, the Spirit of the Lord is upon me. He had received a visitation of the Holy Spirit. The book
was opened on the sabbath, or SEVENTH day of the week, which again points to the end time.
Therefore, when the first seal was to be removed from the book, the beginning of the end time, it was to
commence with a VISITATION OF THE HOLY GHOST and a MANIFESTATION OF DELIVERNCE
MINISTRIES.
This is what happened in 1948 and surrounding years. Great deliverance evangelists were raised up. Names
like Oral Roberts, William Branham, T.L. Osborn, W.V. Grant, Velmer Gardner, Jack Coe, Gordon Lindsay,
A.A. Allen, etc. gained world wide prominence.

It was at this same time that the restoration revival of PRAISE and WORSHIP was restored to the church. The
visitation of 1948 swept through Canada and North America. Many truths at this time were built into the
church.

Revelation 10:1-11. And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a
rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: And he had in his
hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, And cried with a
loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. And when the
seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me,
Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. And the angel which I saw stand
upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever,
who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea,
and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: But in the days of the voice of the seventh
angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants
the prophets. And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little
book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth. And I went unto
the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall
make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. And I took the little book out of the angel‟s
hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
Psalm 29:3-9. The voice of the LORD is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD is upon many
waters. The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is full of majesty. The voice of the LORD
breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon. He maketh them also to skip like a calf;
Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn. The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of fire. The voice of the
LORD shaketh the wilderness; the LORD shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh. The voice of the LORD maketh
the hinds to calve, and discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one speak of his glory.
Jeremiah 15:16. Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of
mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.
Ezekiel 2:8-3:3. But thou, son of man, hear what I say unto thee; Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious
house: open thy mouth, and eat that I give thee. And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me; and, lo,
a roll of a book was therein; And he spread it before me; and it was written within and without: and there was
written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe. Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou
findest; eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel. So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that
roll. And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee.
Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness.

THE TIME PERIOD OF THE BREAKING OF THE SEALS


Daniel 8:17,19,26. So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but
he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end shall be the vision. And he said, Behold, I
will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be.
And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore SHUT THOU UP the vision;
for yet the vision is for many days.
Daniel 10:14. Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the
vision is for many days.
Daniel 11:35. And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white,
even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.
Daniel 12:9,10. And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 73

shall understand; but the wise shall understand.


Daniel 12:4. But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall
run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
Psalm 102:18-20. This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall
praise the LORD. For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the LORD behold
the earth; To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death;
Amos 9:11-15. In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches
thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old: That they may possess the remnant
of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this. Behold, the days
come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth
seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt. And I will bring again the captivity
of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards,
and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. And I will plant them upon
their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy
God.
Acts 15:16,17. After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I
will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up: That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all
the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.
Isaiah 61:1-3. The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good
tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the
opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of
vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them
beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be
called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.
Matthew 24:32-35. Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves,
ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the
doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth
shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
Zechariah 10:1-5. Ask ye of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make bright
clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field. For the idols have spoken vanity, and the
diviners have seen a lie, and have told false dreams; they comfort in vain: therefore they went their way as a
flock, they were troubled, because there was no shepherd. Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I
punished the goats: for the LORD of hosts hath visited his flock the house of Judah, and hath made them as his
goodly horse in the battle. Out of him came forth the corner, out of him the nail, out of him the battle bow, out
of him every oppressor together. And they shall be as mighty men, which tread down their enemies in the mire
of the streets in the battle: and they shall fight, because the LORD is with them, and the riders on horses shall be
confounded.
Job 39:19-25. Hast thou given the horse strength? hast thou clothed his neck with thunder? Canst thou make
him afraid as a grasshopper? the glory of his nostrils is terrible. He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his
strength: he goeth on to meet the armed men. He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted; neither turneth he back
from the sword. The quiver rattleth against him, the glittering spear and the shield. He swalloweth the ground
with fierceness and rage: neither believeth he that it is the sound of the trumpet. He saith among the trumpets,
Ha, ha; and he smelleth the battle afar off, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting.
2 Chronicles 20:16-23. To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye
shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel. Ye shall not need to fight in this battle:
set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor
be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you. And Jehoshaphat bowed his head
with his face to the ground: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the LORD, worshipping
the LORD. And the Levites, of the children of the Kohathites, and of the children of the Korhites, stood up to
praise the LORD God of Israel with a loud voice on high. And they rose early in the morning, and went forth
into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye
inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so
shall ye prosper. And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the LORD, and that
should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the LORD; for his
mercy endureth for ever. And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the
children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten. For the
children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them:
and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.
Psalm 50:23. Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew
the salvation of God.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 74

An alternative rendering of this verse reads He that praises me, MAKES A WAY FOR GOD TO WORK.
Psalm 22:3. But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel. God inhabits the praises of His
people.
The following sections of Scripture reveal the MIGHTY REVIVAL, the OUTPOURING OF THE HOLY
SPIRIT, and the MULTITUDINOUS HARVEST that is to be experienced by the church in the last days
Matthew 22:2-14. The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, And
sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come. Again, he sent
forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my
fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. But they made light of it, and went their
ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise: And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them
spitefully, and slew them. But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and
destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but
they which were bidden were not worthy. Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid
to the marriage. So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found,
both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests. And when the king came in to see the guests,
he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in
hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him
hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of
teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen.
Matthew 24:26-31. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is
in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the
west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be
gathered together. Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall
not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then
shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall
see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels
with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of
heaven to the other.
Luke 14:16-24. Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many: And sent his
servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready. And they all with
one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go
and see it: I pray thee have me excused. And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove
them: I pray thee have me excused. And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come. So
that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his
servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and
the halt, and the blind. And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.
And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my
house may be filled. For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.
John 17:21-23. That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in
us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them;
that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and
that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
Ephesians 4:11-16. And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors
and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of
Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man,
unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and
fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they
lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head,
even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint
supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the
edifying of itself in love.

Ephesians 5:23-32. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is
the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands
in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That
he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a
glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever
yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of
his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 75

joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and
the church.
Acts 3:19-21. Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of
refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was
preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath
spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.
Joel 2:23-32. Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the
former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in
the first month. And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil. And I will
restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my
great army which I sent among you. And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the
LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed. And ye shall
know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall
never be ashamed. And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your
sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. And I will shew
wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into
darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. And it shall come
to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in
Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.
James 5:7. Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the
precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.
Hosea 6:2,3. After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he
shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
Haggai 2:9. The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in
this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.
Luke 4:1-21,40. And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the
wilderness, Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were
ended, he afterward hungered. And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that
it be made bread. And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by
every word of God. And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of
the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of
them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all
shall be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt
worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a
pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence: For it is
written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee: And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest
at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not
tempt the Lord thy God. And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.
And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the
region round about. And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all. And he came to Nazareth, where
he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up
for to read. And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the
book, he found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me
to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives,
and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the
Lord. And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that
were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled
in your ears. Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto
him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.
Ezekiel 37:1-14. The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me
down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones, And caused me to pass by them round about: and,
behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. And he said unto me, Son of
man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest. Again he said unto me, Prophesy
upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD. Thus saith the Lord GOD
unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: And I will lay sinews upon
you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye
shall know that I am the LORD. So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise,
and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone. And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 76

flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them. Then said he unto
me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from
the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. So I prophesied as he commanded
me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army. Then
he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried,
and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts. Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord
GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring
you into the land of Israel. And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my
people, and brought you up out of your graves, And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall
place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the
LORD.
Ezekiel 47:1-12. 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. 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 looketh
eastward; and, behold, there ran out waters on the right side. 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. 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. 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. 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. Now when I had returned, behold, at the bank of the river were
very many trees on the one side and on the other. 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. And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, 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 every thing shall live whither the river cometh. And it shall come to pass, that the
fishers shall stand upon it from Engedi even unto Eneglaim; they shall be a place to spread forth nets; their fish
shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many. But the miry places thereof and
the marishes thereof shall not be healed; they shall be given to salt. And by the river upon the bank thereof, on
this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be
consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the
sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.
John 2:10. And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well
drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.
John 7:37-39. In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him
come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of
living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost
was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
John 11:5-15. Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. When he had heard therefore that he was
sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was. Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go
into Judaea again. His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou
thither again? Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth
not, because he seeth the light of this world. But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no
light in him. These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I
may awake him out of sleep. Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well. Howbeit Jesus spake of
his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep. Then said Jesus unto them plainly,
Lazarus is dead. And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let
us go unto him.
Luke 11:5-13. And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and
say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves; For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have
nothing to set before him? And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and
my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee. I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give
him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth.
And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto
you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be
opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will
he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil,
know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy
Spirit to them that ask him?

Luke 13:32. And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and
to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.
Exodus 16:4,5. Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people
shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.
And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall prepare that which they bring in; and it shall be twice
as much as they gather daily.

The subject of the SEVEN TIMES PROPHECY is one that permeates the entire Word of God. Its teaching
points to this END TIME GENERATION. It needs to be clearly understood by Christian believers of the last
days. Its fulfillment is at the beginning of the GREAT TRIBULATION period.

Genesis 32:13-23; 33:1-4. And he lodged there that same night; and took of that which came to his hand a
present for Esau his brother; two hundred she goats, and twenty he goats, two hundred ewes, and twenty rams,
thirty milch camels with their colts, forty kine, and ten bulls, twenty she asses, and ten foals. And he delivered
them into the hand of his servants, every drove by themselves; and said unto his servants, Pass over before me,
and put a space betwixt drove and drove. And he commanded the foremost, saying, When Esau my brother
meeteth thee, and asketh thee, saying, Whose art thou? and whither goest thou? and whose are these before
thee? Then thou shalt say, They be thy servant Jacob‟s; it is a present sent unto my lord Esau: and, behold, also
he is behind us. And so commanded he the second, and the third, and all that followed the droves, saying, On
this manner shall ye speak unto Esau, when ye find him. And say ye moreover, Behold, thy servant Jacob is
behind us. For he said, I will appease him with the present that goeth before me, and afterward I will see his
face; peradventure he will accept of me. So went the present over before him: and himself lodged that night in
the company. And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his two womenservants, and his eleven
sons, and passed over the ford Jabbok. And he took them, and sent them over the brook, and sent over that he
had. And Jacob lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, Esau came, and with him four hundred men. And he
divided the children unto Leah, and unto Rachel, and unto the two handmaids. And he put the handmaids and
their children foremost, and Leah and her children after, and Rachel and Joseph hindermost. And he passed
over before them, and bowed himself to the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother. And Esau ran
to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck, and kissed him: and they wept.
Ephesians 2:11-16. Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called
Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were
without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise,
having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are
made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the
middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments
contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might
reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
This section of Scripture records the reconciliation of two brothers. Jacob bowing seven times to Esau
foreshadows the Jewish people bowing to the Gentiles until the beginning of the period of Great Tribulation. At
this time the door of salvation will close to all Gentile people, and will open to the Jewish nation. At that time
God will cause a mighty revival to occur in Israel, and many thousands of the inhabitants of the land will
respond to the message of salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ.

THE TIMES OF THE GENTILES are referred to by both the Lord Jesus and the Apostle Paul.
Luke 21:24. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and
Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
Romans 11:25. For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in
your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.

THE TIMES OF THE GENTILES are also seen in the image of Daniel 2. From the head of gold, which
represents Babylon, to the feet of part iron and part clay, which symbolise the yet future division of the entire
world into ten powers or nations, is a period of 2,520 years. This prophetic measurement of time is calculated as
follows. A time is one year‟s duration. This is seen in Revelation 12:6,14.
And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there
a thousand two hundred and threescore days. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she
might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from
the face of the serpent.

It is again seen in Daniel 4:16. Let his heart be changed from man‟s, and let a beast‟s heart be given unto him;
and let seven times pass over him.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 78

A prophetic year comprises three hundred and sixty days. This figure multiplied by seven, that is 360 x 7 =
2,520. The time of the Gentiles therefore extend over this duration.

From the Babylonian captivity of 606 BC., [Nebuchadnezzar, the head of gold] the Jewish people have not had a
king.

The reconciliation of Jacob and Esau came through FIVE droves.


Five is the number of grace, blood, and atonement. This becomes significant therefore, that any lasting peace
and effective reconciliation in the Middle East must be achieved through the cross [the five wounds] of the Lord
Jesus Christ.

At the fulfillment of the SEVEN TIMES prophecy that is, the beginning of the period of the GREAT
TRIBULATION Jews and Gentile will be reconciled though the blood of the cross.

The reason for the separation of these two brethren is found in Genesis 27:30-40. And it came to pass, as soon
as Isaac had made an end of blessing Jacob, and Jacob was yet scarce gone out from the presence of Isaac his
father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting. And he also had made savoury meat, and brought it unto
his father, and said unto his father, Let my father arise, and eat of his son‟s venison, that thy soul may bless me.
And Isaac his father said unto him, Who art thou? And he said, I am thy son, thy firstborn Esau. And Isaac
trembled very exceedingly, and said, Who? where is he that hath taken venison, and brought it me, and I have
eaten of all before thou camest, and have blessed him? yea, and he shall be blessed. And when Esau heard the
words of his father, he cried with a great and exceeding bitter cry, and said unto his father, Bless me, even me
also, O my father. And he said, Thy brother came with subtilty, and hath taken away thy blessing. And he said,
Is not he rightly named Jacob? for he hath supplanted me these two times: he took away my birthright; and,
behold, now he hath taken away my blessing. And he said, Hast thou not reserved a blessing for me? And Isaac
answered and said unto Esau, Behold, I have made him thy lord, and all his brethren have I given to him for
servants; and with corn and wine have I sustained him: and what shall I do now unto thee, my son? And Esau
said unto his father, Hast thou but one blessing, my father? bless me, even me also, O my father. And Esau lifted
up his voice, and wept. And Isaac his father answered and said unto him, Behold, thy dwelling shall be the
fatness of the earth, and of the dew of heaven from above; And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy
brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy
neck.

SEVEN TIMES SPRINKLING OF BLOOD.


Leviticus 4:6. And the priest shall dip his finger in the blood, and sprinkle of the blood seven times before the
LORD, before the vail of the sanctuary.
Leviticus 8:11. And he sprinkled thereof upon the altar seven times, and anointed the altar and all his vessels,
both the laver and his foot, to sanctify them.
Leviticus 14:7. And he shall sprinkle upon him that is to be cleansed from the leprosy seven times, and shall
pronounce him clean, and shall let the living bird loose into the open field.
Leviticus 16:14-16. And he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it with his finger upon the mercy
seat eastward; and before the mercy seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times. Then shall
he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the people, and bring his blood within the vail, and do with that
blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat:
And he shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and
because of their transgressions in all their sins: and so shall he do for the tabernacle of the congregation, that
remaineth among them in the midst of their uncleanness.

This truth reveals the fact that the atoning powers of the BLOOD OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST will attain
their climax immediately prior to the beginning of the Great Tribulation period. Seven is the number of the
dispensational fullness and perfection. This again points to the purging power of the blood of Christ to
annihilate every sin, both known and unknown. There will result a PERFECT CHURCH in the fullness of this
third dispensation of time.
Numbers 14:34. After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a
year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise.
Ezekiel 4:5-6. For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three
hundred and ninety days: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel. And when thou hast
accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days:
I have appointed thee each day for a year.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 79

SEVEN TIMES SPRINKLING OF OIL.


Leviticus 14:16-17. And the priest shall dip his right finger in the oil that is in his left hand, and shall sprinkle
of the oil with his finger seven times before the LORD: And of the rest of the oil that is in his hand shall the
priest put upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and
upon the great toe of his right foot, upon the blood of the trespass offering:
This right was administered by the priest in the cleansing of the leper.

THREE ELEMENTS of the cleansing were here employed. These were BLOOD, WATER and OIL.
The threefold application of oil upon the blood with the sprinkling seven times shows that there is to be a
MIGHTY OUTPOURING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT in the last days immediately prior to the Great Tribulation
period.
Matthew 25:8-10. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the
wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and
buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with
him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
This is a specific parable for the church of the last days. It urges every believer to be FILLED WITH THE
HOLY SPIRIT and to stay filled – at all times. If further shows that a PRICE must be paid for the oil. It must
be paid now, or it must be paid later. The foolish virgins decided to pay later. Pay indeed they did. They were
expelled from the marriage. The door was shut. Their opportunity was gone forever. Let every believer take
heed. Let him determine to maintain the anointing of the Lord Jesus upon his life. Regardless of the cost. It
will be disappointment to the full to be shut out from the MARRIAGE of the Lord Jesus Christ.

SEVEN TIMES MARCHING AROUND THE WALLS OF JERICHO.


Joshua 6:1-16, 20. Now Jericho was straitly shut up because of the children of Israel: none went out, and none
came in. And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and
the mighty men of valour. And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once.
Thus shalt thou do six days. And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams‟ horns: and the
seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets. And it shall
come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram‟s horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet,
all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall
ascend up every man straight before him. And Joshua the son of Nun called the priests, and said unto them,
Take up the ark of the covenant, and let seven priests bear seven trumpets of rams‟ horns before the ark of the
LORD. And he said unto the people, Pass on, and compass the city, and let him that is armed pass on before the
ark of the LORD. And it came to pass, when Joshua had spoken unto the people, that the seven priests bearing
the seven trumpets of rams‟ horns passed on before the LORD, and blew with the trumpets: and the ark of the
covenant of the LORD followed them. And the armed men went before the priests that blew with the trumpets,
and the rereward came after the ark, the priests going on, and blowing with the trumpets. And Joshua had
commanded the people, saying, Ye shall not shout, nor make any noise with your voice, neither shall any word
proceed out of your mouth, until the day I bid you shout; then shall ye shout. So the ark of the LORD
compassed the city, going about it once: and they came into the camp, and lodged in the camp. And Joshua rose
early in the morning, and the priests took up the ark of the LORD. And seven priests bearing seven trumpets of
rams‟ horns before the ark of the LORD went on continually, and blew with the trumpets: and the armed men
went before them; but the rereward came after the ark of the LORD, the priests going on, and blowing with the
trumpets. And the second day they compassed the city once, and returned into the camp: so they did six days.
And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose early about the dawning of the day, and compassed the
city after the same manner seven times: only on that day they compassed the city seven times. And it came to
pass at the seventh time, when the priests blew with the trumpets, Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the
LORD hath given you the city. So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to
pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall
fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.

This section of the Bible has a dual aspect for the church of the last days. Firstly, it unveils the fact that at the
fulfillment of the seven times, that is, the beginning of the period of Great Tribulation, EVERY RESISTANCE
BEFORE THE CHURCH IS GOING TO CRUMBLE and that the church will POSSESS THE GATES OF ITS
ENEMIES. It will be TOTALLY VICTORIOUS AND TRIUMPHANT before the return of the Lord Jesus.

Secondly, there is the application that applies to the great cities of the world. There is to be a COLLAPSE in
every area, economically, socially, politically, and even physically. This is further seen in Revelation 16:19.
And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 80

remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
POLITICAL BABYLON IS GOING TO FALL.

SEVEN TIMES PRAYING OF ELIJAH.


1 Kings 18:41-46. And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of
rain. So Ahab went up to eat and to drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he cast himself down
upon the earth, and put his face between his knees, And said to his servant, Go up now, look toward the sea.
And he went up, and looked, and said, There is nothing. And he said, Go again seven times. And it came to pass
at the seventh time, that he said, Behold, there ariseth a little cloud out of the sea, like a man‟s hand. And he
said, Go up, say unto Ahab, Prepare thy chariot, and get thee down, that the rain stop thee not. And it came to
pass in the mean while, that the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. And Ahab
rode, and went to Jezreel. And the hand of the LORD was on Elijah; and he girded up his loins, and ran before
Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.
This illustration has a direct bearing upon the END TIME CHURCH.
INTERCESSION and PRAYER are clearly foreshadowed. Elijah‟s face between his knees indicates the great
spirit of supplication that is to be poured out upon the church.
James 5:17-18. Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not
rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the
heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.
In the response to this earnest, determined prayer, the Lord, at the seven times, that is immediately prior to the
Great Tribulation period is going to cause a deluge of SPIRITUAL RAIN [the Holy Spirit] to fall upon the
earth.
Zechariah 10:1. Ask ye of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make bright clouds,
and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field.
John 7:38-39. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living
water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was
not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

SEVEN TIMES DIPPING OF NAAMAN


2 Kings 5:8-14. And it was so, when Elisha the man of God had heard that the king of Israel had rent his
clothes, that he sent to the king, saying, Wherefore hast thou rent thy clothes? let him come now to me, and he
shall know that there is a prophet in Israel. So Naaman came with his horses and with his chariot, and stood at
the door of the house of Elisha. And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying, Go and wash in Jordan seven
times, and thy flesh shall come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean. But Naaman was wroth, and went away,
and said, Behold, I thought, He will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of the LORD his
God, and strike his hand over the place, and recover the leper. Are not Abana and Pharpar, rivers of Damascus,
better than all the waters of Israel? may I not wash in them, and be clean? So he turned and went away in a rage.
And his servants came near, and spake unto him, and said, My father, if the prophet had bid thee do some great
thing, wouldest thou not have done it? how much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean? Then
went he down, and dipped himself seven times in Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God: and his
flesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.

The truths of DIVINE HEALING and WATER BAPTISM are here seen. A manifestation of these truths in
their fullness is YET TO BE EXPERIENCED BY THE CHURCH!

SEVEN TIMES HEATING OF THE FURNACE.


Daniel 3:19-20. Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one
seven times more than it was wont to be heated. And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army
to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace.

Here is a very specific revealing of a high SATAN-INSPIRED PERSECUTION against the church. It will be
worldwide. [At the present time 60% of Christendom is under persecution.]

SEVEN TIMES INSANITY OF NEBUCHADNEZZAR.


Daniel 4:29-33. At the end of twelve months he walked in the palace of the kingdom of Babylon. The king
spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my
power, and for the honour of my majesty? While the word was in the king‟s mouth, there fell a voice from
heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee. And they
shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 81

as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men,
and giveth it to whomsoever he will. The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was
driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were
grown like eagles‟ feathers, and his nails like birds‟ claws.
Nebuchadnezzar is a type of the duration of the entire Gentile dominion. The 2,520 days of his insanity are a
pattern of the Times of the Gentiles of 2,520 years. He was in fact the head of the Gentile kingdom.
Daniel 2:37-38. Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and
strength, and glory. And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the
heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold.
It stands to reason that if the HEAD IS CRAZY, the entire CREATURE IS INSANE. All the glories of the
kingdoms of the world are here seen to be MENTALLY UNBALANCED.
The whole image of Daniel 2:31-35 deals with the history of the kingdoms of the world. It is not until the days
of the ten kings, that is, the division of the would into ten nations, that the God of heaven will send forth a stone
to smite the image on its feet. This will be at the conclusion of the 2,520 year cycle.

SEVEN TIMES SNEEZING OF THE CHILD.


2 Kings 4:32-35. And when Elisha was come into the house, behold, the child was dead, and laid upon his bed.
He went in therefore, and shut the door upon them twain, and prayed unto the LORD. And he went up, and lay
upon the child, and put his mouth upon his mouth, and his eyes upon his eyes, and his hands upon his hands:
and he stretched himself upon the child; and the flesh of the child waxed warm. Then he returned, and walked
in the house to and fro; and went up, and stretched himself upon him: and the child sneezed seven times, and the
child opened his eyes.

The miracle foreshadows the RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD. It is the CURRENT TRUTH being restored
to the church. It speaks of a mighty manifestation of the power of the Lord Jesus in the last days that will
literally raise the dead. There is a spiritual application to this truth also.
Hebrews 6:2. Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of
eternal judgment.
Matthew 10:7-8. And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the
lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

Raising the dead is a part of the commission the Lord Jesus gave to his church. Prior to the second coming of
Christ therefore, the RAISING OF THE DEAD will occur in a great way.

SEVEN TIMES AND THE FORGIVENESS OF PETER.


Matthew 18:21-22. Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I
forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy
times seven.

These Scriptures have a double application.

Firstly, there is the natural aspect given in the instruction of the Lord. The emphasis is on unlimited
forgiveness. Seventy times seven is shown to be 490 TIMES FOR ONE OFFENCE IN ONE DAY!

Secondly, there is a prophetic aspect. The seventy times is fulfilled at the beginning of the Great Tribulation
period. Seventy times seven is at the End of the great tribulation, the time of the second coming of Christ.
Genesis 4:15, 24. And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken
on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him. If Cain shall be
avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.

Daniel 3:19. 9:24. Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one
seven times more than it was wont to be heated. 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.

By linking the major thoughts from the foregoing reference of the SEVEN TIMES THEMES of the Bible, the
following experiences are to be undergone by the church before the second coming of the Lord Jesus.
The RECONCILIATION of the Jew and Gentile. The full manifestation of the powers of the BLOOD of the
Lord Jesus Christ, resulting in a perfect church. The GRAFTING in again of the Jews at the beginning of the
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 82

tribulation. The POSSESSION of the cities of the nations by the church and the fall of political Babylon. The
SPIRIT OF INTERCESSION upon the church resulting in a mighty visitation to this earth of the Holy Spirit,
the like of which the world has never seen, or will ever see again. A major significance of the importance of
WATER BAPTISM for the believer. A manifestation of the HEALING POWER of the Lord Jesus, through the
church, the like only being paralleled by the personal ministry of Christ Himself. Total results can confidently
be expected. A PERSECUTION against the Body of Christ. The INSANITY of the nations of the earth. The
need for every Christian to execute unlimited FORGIVENESS, totally and unconditionally, thus giving the
offender what he needs [not what he deserves], and manifesting to the world the love of God. It is through
forgiveness that the love of God is manifested. The bride of Christ will escape the final persecution of the
church, as typified with the association of DANIEL with the SEVENTY TIMES SEVEN. The section of the
body of Christ as typified by Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego being exposed to fiery persecution.

SEVEN TIMES AND THE PUNISHMENT OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL.


Leviticus 26:18. And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will punish you seven times more for
your sins.
Romans 11:11-25. I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their
fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. Now if the fall of them be the riches of
the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness? For I speak to
you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office: If by any means I may
provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them. For if the casting away of them
be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead? For if the firstfruit
be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. And if some of the branches be
broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root
and fatness of the olive tree; Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the
root thee. Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. Well; because of
unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: For if God spared not
the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God:
on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also
shalt be cut off. And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff
them in again. For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to
nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their
own olive tree? For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in
your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

Israel‟s time of PUNISHMENT and BLINDNESS is until the fulfillment of the SEVEN TIMES. At that time
their eyes will again be opened. The fullness of the Gentiles will have come in. The door of salvation for the
nations of the earth will have closed. God will again graft in his ancient people. This will occur during the
great tribulation.

THE GREAT FALLING AWAY will take place after this time of worldwide visitation. The greatest time of
deception in the history of the Christian church will then transpire.
2 Thessalonians 2:3. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a
falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Matthew 24:4,5. And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall
come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
1 Kings 22:1-38. And they continued three years without war between Syria and Israel. And it came to pass in
the third year, that Jehoshaphat the king of Judah came down to the king of Israel. And the king of Israel said
unto his servants, Know ye that Ramoth in Gilead is ours, and we be still, and take it not out of the hand of the
king of Syria? And he said unto Jehoshaphat, Wilt thou go with me to battle to Ramothgilead? And
Jehoshaphat said to the king of Israel, I am as thou art, my people as thy people, my horses as thy horses. And
Jehoshaphat said unto the king of Israel, Enquire, I pray thee, at the word of the LORD to day. Then the king of
Israel gathered the prophets together, about four hundred men, and said unto them, Shall I go against
Ramothgilead to battle, or shall I forbear? And they said, Go up; for the Lord shall deliver it into the hand of the
king. And Jehoshaphat said, Is there not here a prophet of the LORD besides, that we might enquire of him?
And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, There is yet one man, Micaiah the son of Imlah, by whom we may
enquire of the LORD: but I hate him; for he doth not prophesy good concerning me, but evil. And Jehoshaphat
said, Let not the king say so. Then the king of Israel called an officer, and said, Hasten hither Micaiah the son
of Imlah. And the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah sat each on his throne, having put on their
robes, in a void place in the entrance of the gate of Samaria; and all the prophets prophesied before them. And
Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah made him horns of iron: and he said, Thus saith the LORD, With these shalt

thou push the Syrians, until thou have consumed them. And all the prophets prophesied so, saying, Go up to
Ramothgilead, and prosper: for the LORD shall deliver it into the king‟s hand. And the messenger that was
gone to call Micaiah spake unto him, saying, Behold now, the words of the prophets declare good unto the king
with one mouth: let thy word, I pray thee, be like the word of one of them, and speak that which is good. And
Micaiah said, As the LORD liveth, what the LORD saith unto me, that will I speak. So he came to the king.
And the king said unto him, Micaiah, shall we go against Ramothgilead to battle, or shall we forbear? And he
answered him, Go, and prosper: for the LORD shall deliver it into the hand of the king. And the king said unto
him, How many times shall I adjure thee that thou tell me nothing but that which is true in the name of the
LORD? And he said, I saw all Israel scattered upon the hills, as sheep that have not a shepherd: and the LORD
said, These have no master: let them return every man to his house in peace. And the king of Israel said unto
Jehoshaphat, Did I not tell thee that he would prophesy no good concerning me, but evil? And he said, Hear
thou therefore the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing
by him on his right hand and on his left. And the LORD said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and
fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner. And there came forth a
spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him. And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith?
And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt
persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so. Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in
the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee. But Zedekiah the son of
Chenaanah went near, and smote Micaiah on the cheek, and said, Which way went the Spirit of the LORD from
me to speak unto thee? And Micaiah said, Behold, thou shalt see in that day, when thou shalt go into an inner
chamber to hide thyself. And the king of Israel said, Take Micaiah, and carry him back unto Amon the governor
of the city, and to Joash the king‟s son; And say, Thus saith the king, Put this fellow in the prison, and feed him
with bread of affliction and with water of affliction, until I come in peace. And Micaiah said, If thou return at
all in peace, the LORD hath not spoken by me. And he said, Hearken, O people, every one of you. So the king
of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah went up to Ramothgilead. And the king of Israel said unto
Jehoshaphat, I will disguise myself, and enter into the battle; but put thou on thy robes. And the king of Israel
disguised himself, and went into the battle. But the king of Syria commanded his thirty and two captains that
had rule over his chariots, saying, Fight neither with small nor great, save only with the king of Israel. And it
came to pass, when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, that they said, Surely it is the king of Israel.
And they turned aside to fight against him: and Jehoshaphat cried out. And it came to pass, when the captains of
the chariots perceived that it was not the king of Israel, that they turned back from pursuing him. And a certain
man drew a bow at a venture, and smote the king of Israel between the joints of the harness: wherefore he said
unto the driver of his chariot, Turn thine hand, and carry me out of the host; for I am wounded. And the battle
increased that day: and the king was stayed up in his chariot against the Syrians, and died at even: and the blood
ran out of the wound into the midst of the chariot. And there went a proclamation throughout the host about the
going down of the sun, saying, Every man to his city, and every man to his own country. So the king died, and
was brought to Samaria; and they buried the king in Samaria. And one washed the chariot in the pool of
Samaria; and the dogs licked up his blood; and they washed his armour; according unto the word of the LORD
which he spake.
2 Thessalonians 2:10-12. And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they
received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong
delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had
pleasure in unrighteousness.
Matthew 24:24. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders;
insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Jeremiah 17:9. The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Revelation 12:4. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the
dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

THE FIRST GREAT SIGN OF THE END IS DECEPTION.


The major fact to understanding is that a deceived person DOES NOT KNOW that he is deceived. If they
knew, they would no longer be deceived. A deceived person is sincere. He thinks he is right. He is sincerely
wrong.

THREE OUTSTANDING MARKS EXPOSE A DECEIVED PERSON


Firstly, they are EXCLUSIVE. They are the only pebble on the beach. One must join their group in order to be
saved. They are the only ones that have any and all the light. Many false cults in this day claim an exclusive
right to God. Only one of them could be right. If that were so, then where do the born again believers in the
Lord Jesus Christ appear? Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to salvation. His people are in many churches around
the world.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 84

Secondly, a deceived person becomes PREOCCUPIED with certain sections of scripture. He becomes
programmed along certain lines and make no provision for balancing sections. He is locked in the teaching of
the cult.
Thirdly, a deceived person has NO JOY. The devil is a hard taskmaster. Those people he deceives become
heavy with the responsibility of spreading their doctrines of exclusivism. There is no room for joy.
One of the greatest signs of a born again Christian is that of JOY! It is the SECOND FRUIT of the Spirit. It is
evidence of the kingdom of God.
Romans 14:17. For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the
Holy Ghost.
1 Timothy 4:1-3. Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith,
giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience
seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to
be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
Ahab was deceived by lying spirits in the mouth of his prophets. These spirits not only tell lies, but they
influence people to believe lies.

The believer needs to take heed to what he believers. He needs to take heed to what he hears. What he hears
influences what he believes.
Mark 4:24. And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to
you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.
The greatest vehicle of deception lies in the believer‟s own heart. There is no deception greater than SELF
DECEPTION.
Hebrews 6:1-8. Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not
laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of
baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this will we
do, if God permit. For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly
gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the
world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves
the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft
upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God: But that
which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.
Hebrews 10:25-31. Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting
one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. For if we sin wilfully after that we have
received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for
of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses‟ law died
without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought
worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he
was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? For we know him that hath said,
Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It
is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
2 Peter 2:20-22. For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord
and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than
the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have
known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to
the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the
mire.
Luke 12:43-46. Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Of a truth I say unto
you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath. But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth
his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; The
lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and
will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
Matthew 7:15-23. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep‟s clothing, but inwardly they are
ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even
so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring
forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is
hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto
me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in
heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name
have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never
knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 85

Ezekiel 18:19-32. Yet say ye, Why? doth not the son bear the iniquity of the father? When the son hath done
that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all my statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live. The soul
that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity
of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon
him. But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that
which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All his transgressions that he hath committed,
they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live. Have I any pleasure
at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?
But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all
the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be
mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die. Yet ye
say, The way of the Lord is not equal. Hear now, O house of Israel; Is not my way equal? are not your ways
unequal? When a righteous man turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and dieth in
them; for his iniquity that he hath done shall he die. Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his
wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive.
Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely
live, he shall not die. Yet saith the house of Israel, The way of the Lord is not equal. O house of Israel, are not
my ways equal? are not your ways unequal? Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according
to his ways, saith the Lord GOD. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not
be your ruin. Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new
heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of him that
dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.
Revelation 12:4. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the
dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
Hebrews 3:12-14. Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from
the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the
deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast
unto the end;

THE FIRST SEAL. Revelation 6:1-2. And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it
were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse:
and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to
conquer.
The LAMB opened the first seal. There was a noise as thunder as He did so. The first beast, the lion, roared,
COME! This command was not addressed to John, as he was already present and certainly attentive to the
events that were unfolding before his eyes. The instruction was given to the majestic WHITE STEED and its
rider! The first horse was a ride out across the pages of history.

The items of interest under this first seal are the WHITE HORSE, the RIDER, the BOW, the CROWN, and the
fact that this combination went forth CONQUERING in order that they MIGHT CONQUER.

THE WHITE HORSE IS A WAR HORSE. Job 39:19-25. Hast thou given the horse strength? hast thou clothed
his neck with thunder? Canst thou make him afraid as a grasshopper? the glory of his nostrils is terrible. He
paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength: he goeth on to meet the armed men. He mocketh at fear, and
is not affrighted; neither turneth he back from the sword. The quiver rattleth against him, the glittering spear
and the shield. He swalloweth the ground with fierceness and rage: neither believeth he that it is the sound of
the trumpet. He saith among the trumpets, Ha, ha; and he smelleth the battle afar off, the thunder of the
captains, and the shouting.
This is not a highly strung RACEHORSE. Neither is it a little SHETLAND PONY. Not a high-strutting
SHOW HORSE. It is not a big DRAUGHT HORSE. This is a cavalry horse! A horse that has been disciplined
to obey the most sensitive instructions from its rider. A horse that will carry its rider on to VICTORY!
Zechariah 10:1-5. Ask ye of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make bright
clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field. For the idols have spoken vanity, and the
diviners have seen a lie, and have told false dreams; they comfort in vain: therefore they went their way as a
flock, they were troubled, because there was no shepherd. Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I
punished the goats: for the LORD of hosts hath visited his flock the house of Judah, and hath made them as his
goodly horse in the battle. Out of him came forth the corner, out of him the nail, out of him the battle bow, out
of him every oppressor together. And they shall be as mighty men, which tread down their enemies in the mire
of the streets in the battle: and they shall fight, because the LORD is with them, and the riders on horses shall be
confounded.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 86

Proverbs 21:31. The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the LORD.

The greatest day of BATTLE in the history of the Christian church is yet future.
1 Corinthians 14:8. For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?

The culmination of this final battle between Satan and the church is seen in Revelation 12:4, 7. And his tail
drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman
which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And there was war in heaven:
Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels.

This was is still future! It did not happen thousand of years ago but is scheduled to transpire in the next few
years ahead.
Isaiah 43:16-17. Thus saith the LORD, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters; Which
bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power; they shall lie down together, they shall not rise:
they are extinct, they are quenched as tow.
Zechariah 1:8-11. I saw by night, and behold a man riding upon a red horse, and he stood among the myrtle
trees that were in the bottom; and behind him were there red horses, speckled, and white. Then said I, O my
lord, what are these? And the angel that talked with me said unto me, I will shew thee what these be. And the
man that stood among the myrtle trees answered and said, These are they whom the LORD hath sent to walk to
and fro through the earth. And they answered the angel of the LORD that stood among the myrtle trees, and
said, We have walked to and fro through the earth, and, behold, all the earth sitteth still, and is at rest.
2 Kings 6:15-18. And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host
compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we
do? And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. And Elisha
prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the
young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
And when they came down to him, Elisha prayed unto the LORD, and said, Smite this people, I pray thee, with
blindness. And he smote them with blindness according to the word of Elisha.

THE RIDER IS THE HOLY SPIRIT.


Revelation 19:11-16. And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called
Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on
his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed
with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven
followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp
sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the
winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name
written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

The picture of the horse and the rider shows forth military supremacy. It is a symbol of POWER and
VICTORY. The CHURCH of the Lord Jesus is likened to an ARMY.
Zechariah 6:1-8. And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out
from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass. In the first chariot were red horses;
and in the second chariot black horses; And in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot grisled
and bay horses. Then I answered and said unto the angel that talked with me, What are these, my lord? And the
angel answered and said unto me, These are the four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before
the Lord of all the earth. The black horses which are therein go forth into the north country; and the white go
forth after them; and the grisled go forth toward the south country. And the bay went forth, and sought to go
that they might walk to and fro through the earth: and he said, Get you hence, walk to and fro through the earth.
So they walked to and fro through the earth. Then cried he upon me, and spake unto me, saying, Behold, these
that go toward the north country have quieted my spirit in the north country.
2 Kings 2:11. And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire,
and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

THE BOW IS THE WORD OF GOD. Habakkuk 3:9. Thy bow was made quite naked, according to the oaths
of the tribes, even thy word. Selah. Thou didst cleave the earth with rivers.
2 Corinthians 10:3-5. For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our
warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down
imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity
every thought to the obedience of Christ;
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 87

Ephesians 6:17. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

THE WORD OF GOD IS THE SWORD THAT THE SPIRIT USES!


Jeremiah 50:25. The LORD hath opened his armoury, and hath brought forth the weapons of his indignation:
for this is the work of the Lord GOD of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans.
Exodus 15:3. The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.
Psalm 45:5. Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king‟s enemies; whereby the people fall under thee.

THE CROWN IS THE WREATH OF A CONQUEROR. It portrays the Holy Spirit leading the church of the
last days into FINAL and PERMANENT VICTORY.

The breaking of the first seal brings forth REVIVAL. It is the beginning of the OUTPOURING OF THE
SPIRIT of the last days forecast by the prophets.
Isaiah 26:9. With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early:
for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
Joel 2:28-29. And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and
your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also
upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
Acts 2:17-18. And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh:
and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall
dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they
shall prophesy:
Matthew 24:14. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations;
and then shall the end come.
Acts 1:8. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto
me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Mark 16:15-18. And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He
that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall
follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall
take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and
they shall recover.
Matthew 28:18-20. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in
earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of
the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you
alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

The Lion of the tribe of Judah prevailed to open the book. It had been sealed until the beginning of the end time
generation.
Daniel 12:4. But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall
run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
This seven sealed book of redemption is indeed the TITLE DEED OF THE EARTH. The opening of the first
seal is the first step taken by the Lamb to enforce his ownership of the earth. It is the beginning of a progressive
victory that will culminate in the final overthrow and CASTING DOWN OF SATAN, resulting in the final
manifestation of the MYSTERY OF GOD and the PERFECTED CHURCH. The white horse and his rider will
CONTINUE until this is so!
Matthew 16:18-19. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church;
and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven:
and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall
be loosed in heaven.

This is not the antichrist. He does not appear until after the breaking of the seventh seal.

When God moves in judgment, he always proceeds in mercy prior to its execution.
1 Peter 4:17. For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what
shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
This is the reason for the sending forth of the white horse first. To judge sin. To purify. To make the church
white and pure. Daniel 12:10. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do
wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

White is the colour of HOLINESS, RIGHTEOUSNESS and PURITY.

written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
Revelation 4:4. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and
twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.
Revelation 6:11. And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they
should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they
were, should be fulfilled.
Revelation 7:9, 13, 14. After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all
nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with
white robes, and palms in their hands; And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which
are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me,
These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the
blood of the Lamb.

Psalm 45:3-5. Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty. And in thy
majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee
terrible things. Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king‟s enemies; whereby the people fall under thee.
1 Corinthians 15:25. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.

ARROW. 2 Kings 13:17. And he said, Open the window eastward. And he opened it. Then Elisha said, Shoot.
And he shot. And he said, The arrow of the LORD‟S deliverance, and the arrow of deliverance from Syria: for
thou shalt smite the Syrians in Aphek, till thou have consumed them.

The CROWN speaks of AUTHORITY.


Hebrews 2:9. But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned
with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
Zechariah 6:11-13. Then take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them upon the head of Joshua the son
of Josedech, the high priest; And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the
man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the
LORD: Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his
throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.
GENERAL DOUGLAS MCARTHUR, one of the greatest generals of all time, said the following of Genghis
Kahn, grandfather of Kublai Kahn. “If the records of all the great battles in the history of the world were
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 89

obliterated, except that of the Mighty Kahn, the MODERN SOLDIER would still have access to UNLIMITED
KNOWLEDGE in the STRUCTURING OF AN ARMY.”
Just 773 years ago, the great Mongolian warrior conquered the entire then-known world. The Kahn NEVER
LOST A MAJOR BATTLE. The basic principles of war are learned from the past. Genghis Kahn‟s armies
were generally well outnumbered. Many empires and many millions of people suffered crushing defeat at his
hand.
The Chinese called the Mongolian warriors the BOW AND ARROW MEN. Each soldier was armed with two
bows, one to be used from a galloping horse, the other for greater accuracy, was used dismounted. Short,
medium and long-ranged arrows were employed. The short ranged arrows were metal tipped and armor
piercing.
Such concentration of force devastated the enemy. It was by the BOW and ARROW GENGHIS KAHN
conquered. He had PERFECTED THIS WEAPON and by it NEVER KNEW PERMANENT DEFEAT.
There is nothing that conquers like the BOW AND ARROW. There is nothing that conquers like
PERSEVERING PRAISE.
The basic principles of warfare are constant. They never vary. Genghis Kahn mastered and applied these
principles to perfection.

The vision is sealed until the time of the end. Daniel 10:14. Now I am come to make thee understand what shall
befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.
Daniel 11:35. And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white,
even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.
Daniel 12:4,7,9,10. But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many
shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon
the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that
liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the
power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished. And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are
closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked
shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
Malachi 3:1-4. Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom
ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he
shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he
appeareth? for he is like a refiner‟s fire, and like fullers‟ soap: And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver:
and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an
offering in righteousness. Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the
days of old, and as in former years.

THE SECOND SEAL. Revelation 6:3-4. And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast
say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon
to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
The purpose of the second seal was to take PEACE FROM THE EARTH. Red is the colour of blood. The life
is in the blood. This seal speaks of STRIFE, LAWLESSNESS and ANARCHY. There is abundant evidence of
this today world wide. There is resulting a disintegration of human relationships. They are becoming flimsy
and temporary. Nothing seems to last.
Matthew 24:6-7. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things
must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

Increasing TENSIONS exist between employers and employees. Rebellion and VIOLENCE have become the
order of the day. Brother betrays brother, even to the point of death.
Isaiah 19:2. And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his
brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.
Zechariah 14:13. And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among
them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand
of his neighbour.
Ezekiel 38:21. 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.
Jeremiah 25:15-33. For thus saith the LORD God of Israel unto me; Take the wine cup of this fury at my hand,
and cause all the nations, to whom I send thee, to drink it. And they shall drink, and be moved, and be mad,
because of the sword that I will send among them. Then took I the cup at the LORD‟S hand, and made all the
nations to drink, unto whom the LORD had sent me: To wit, Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah, and the kings
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 90

thereof, and the princes thereof, to make them a desolation, an astonishment, an hissing, and a curse; as it is this
day; Pharaoh king of Egypt, and his servants, and his princes, and all his people; And all the mingled people,
and all the kings of the land of Uz, and all the kings of the land of the Philistines, and Ashkelon, and Azzah, and
Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod, Edom, and Moab, and the children of Ammon, And all the kings of Tyrus,
and all the kings of Zidon, and the kings of the isles which are beyond the sea, Dedan, and Tema, and Buz, and
all that are in the utmost corners, And all the kings of Arabia, and all the kings of the mingled people that dwell
in the desert, And all the kings of Zimri, and all the kings of Elam, and all the kings of the Medes, And all the
kings of the north, far and near, one with another, and all the kingdoms of the world, which are upon the face of
the earth: and the king of Sheshach shall drink after them. Therefore thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the
LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Drink ye, and be drunken, and spue, and fall, and rise no more, because of the
sword which I will send among you. And it shall be, if they refuse to take the cup at thine hand to drink, then
shalt thou say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Ye shall certainly drink. For, lo, I begin to bring evil
on the city which is called by my name, and should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished: for I
will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the LORD of hosts. Therefore prophesy thou
against them all these words, and say unto them, The LORD shall roar from on high, and utter his voice from his
holy habitation; he shall mightily roar upon his habitation; he shall give a shout, as they that tread the grapes,
against all the inhabitants of the earth. A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the LORD hath a
controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith
the LORD. Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great
whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth. And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from
one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor
buried; they shall be dung upon the ground.
Leviticus 26:25-33. And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the quarrel of my covenant: and when
ye are gathered together within your cities, I will send the pestilence among you; and ye shall be delivered into
the hand of the enemy. And when I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one
oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight: and ye shall eat, and not be satisfied. And if ye
will not for all this hearken unto me, but walk contrary unto me; Then I will walk contrary unto you also in
fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins. And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the
flesh of your daughters shall ye eat. And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast
your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and my soul shall abhor you. And I will make your cities waste,
and bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours. And I will
bring the land into desolation: and your enemies which dwell therein shall be astonished at it. And I will scatter
you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities
waste.
Ezekiel 14:12-21. The word of the LORD came again to me, saying, Son of man, when the land sinneth against
me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it, and will break the staff of the bread
thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it: Though these three men, Noah,
Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord GOD.
If I cause noisome beasts to pass through the land, and they spoil it, so that it be desolate, that no man may pass
through because of the beasts: Though these three men were in it, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, they shall
deliver neither sons nor daughters; they only shall be delivered, but the land shall be desolate. Or if I bring a
sword upon that land, and say, Sword, go through the land; so that I cut off man and beast from it: Though
these three men were in it, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters, but they
only shall be delivered themselves. Or if I send a pestilence into that land, and pour out my fury upon it in
blood, to cut off from it man and beast: Though Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, as I live, saith the Lord GOD,
they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness. For
thus saith the Lord GOD; How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the sword, and
the famine, and the noisome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast?
2 Chronicles 15:5-6. And in those times there was no peace to him that went out, nor to him that came in, but
great vexations were upon all the inhabitants of the countries. And nation was destroyed of nation, and city of
city: for God did vex them with all adversity.
Micah 7:2-6. The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in
wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net. That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the
prince asketh, and the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth his mischievous desire: so they
wrap it up. The best of them is as a brier: the most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge: the day of thy
watchmen and thy visitation cometh; now shall be their perplexity. Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not
confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom. For the son dishonoureth
the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man‟s
enemies are the men of his own house.
Matthew 10:21. And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 91

shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.
Matthew 10:35-36. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her
mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man‟s foes shall be they of his own
household.
Matthew 24:10. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
2 Chronicles 15:3. Now for a long season Israel hath been without the true God, and without a teaching priest,
and without law.
Revelation 12:3. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven
heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
THE THIRD SEAL. Revelation 6:5-6. And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say,
Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of
barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

This is a picture of FAMINE.


Lamentations 5:10. Our skin was black like an oven because of the terrible famine.

The rider having balances in his hand points to the fact that any available measure was strictly measured. There
would not be any extra grains thrown in for good measure. Precision in weight was ordered. When this situation
is called for it is a clear indication of the tremendous scarcity of food.
Leviticus 26:26. And when I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven,
and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight: and ye shall eat, and not be satisfied.
Ezekiel 4:16. Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, behold, I will break the staff of bread in Jerusalem: and
they shall eat bread by weight, and with care; and they shall drink water by measure, and with astonishment:
Matthew 24:7. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines,
and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
Lamentations 4:4-10. The tongue of the sucking child cleaveth to the roof of his mouth for thirst: the young
children ask bread, and no man breaketh it unto them. They that did feed delicately are desolate in the streets:
they that were brought up in scarlet embrace dunghills. For the punishment of the iniquity of the daughter of my
people is greater than the punishment of the sin of Sodom, that was overthrown as in a moment, and no hands
stayed on her. Her Nazarites were purer than snow, they were whiter than milk, they were more ruddy in body
than rubies, their polishing was of sapphire: Their visage is blacker than a coal; they are not known in the
streets: their skin cleaveth to their bones; it is withered, it is become like a stick. They that be slain with the
sword are better than they that be slain with hunger: for these pine away, stricken through for want of the fruits
of the field. The hands of the pitiful women have sodden their own children: they were their meat in the
destruction of the daughter of my people.
At the time of the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem by the Roman General Titus, son of the Emperor
Vespasian, in A.D. 70, many MOTHERS were SLAYING THEIR CHILDREN, and COOKING THEM in
desperate efforts to stay alive.
Jeremiah 14:1-2. The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah concerning the dearth. Judah mourneth, and
the gates thereof languish; they are black unto the ground; and the cry of Jerusalem is gone up.
Ezekiel 4:10. And thy meat which thou shalt eat shall be by weight, twenty shekels a day: from time to time
shalt thou eat it.
Jeremiah 14:12. When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and an oblation, I
will not accept them: but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence.

WHEAT was available at an exorbitant price.

A measure of wheat for a penny. The measure was a choenix, a little under two pints. The money, a penny, is
called a denarius. It was the WAGES PAID FOR A MAN FOR A DAY‟S WORK.
Matthew 20:2,9. And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.
And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.
A choenix was the daily measure for a SLAVE.
A choenix usually cost an eighth of a denarius. In this famine time, it had escalated to a denarius. This was
EIGHT TIMES higher than its ordinary price. An extremely high inflation rate indeed!
At other times a denarius would purchase sixteen, and even twenty choenixes.
In the time of famine therefore, a DAYS WAGES WOULD PURCHASE A SLAVE‟S RATION FOR A DAY.
This would certainly not provide for a man‟s wife and family. The Lord Jesus taught his followers to pray that
there would be adequate provision for each day.
Matthew 6:11. Give us this day our daily bread.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 92

In times of plenty, food prices are relatively cheap; in times of famine, the increase is many times.
A Denarius, at the same time could purchase as many as 24 choenixes. In the breaking of the third seal, the
purchasing power of the denarius is diminished eight times, that is, it will only buy THREE CHOENIXES!

Deuteronomy 7:13, 11:14, 28:51. And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless
the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine,
and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee. That I will give you the rain
of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine,
and thine oil. And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which also
shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have
destroyed thee.
Hosea 2:8,22. For she did not know that I gave her corn, and wine, and oil, and multiplied her silver and gold,
which they prepared for Baal. And the earth shall hear the corn, and the wine, and the oil; and they shall hear
Jezreel.
It is important to observe that while wheat and barley are available at famine prices, there exists an
ABUNDANCE of the refined commodities of OIL AND WINE. This was also true of the famine in the time of
Joseph.
Genesis 43:11. And their father Israel said unto them, If it must be so now, do this; take of the best fruits in the
land in your vessels, and carry down the man a present, a little balm, and a little honey, spices, and myrrh, nuts,
and almonds:
The BEST FRUITS of the land were in abundant supply. FAMINE AND LUXURY existed AT THE SAME
TIME.

In the harvest times in Israel, wheat and barley were reaped in the first and third months, while the fruit harvest
of oil and wine occurred in the seventh. This is prophetic of the fact that the rider and the white horse, including
every born again believer comprising it, will ride triumphantly through the future famine conditions that will
encircle the entire planet.

Wheat and barley speak of the INITIAL EXPERIENCE of salvation, and the baptism of the Holy Spirit, in the
life of the Christian.

Oil and wine show the ENSUING WORKING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT in his life.

Numbers 11:9,20. And when the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the manna fell upon it. But even a whole
month, until it come out at your nostrils, and it be loathsome unto you: because that ye have despised the LORD
which is among you, and have wept before him, saying, Why came we forth out of Egypt?
The provision of God was treated with contempt. The daily bread was replaced with flesh. They asked for it.
They craved for it. They desired it with such earnestness, that when it came for thirty days they were absolutely
repulsed by it. They loathed it.

The provision of oil and wine shows that the saints of the living God will be WELL PROVIDED FOR.
With the advent of the mark of the beast, no Christian will be able to buy or sell. God will
SUPERNATURALLY PROVIDE for His people again. That is, those that will BUY and build a RESERVE
SUPPLY OF OIL at this current time!
God has done it before. For Israel it was for forty years. He will do it again.

Matthew 25:4. But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
Luke 5:37-38. And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be
spilled, and the bottles shall perish. But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved.
Oil shadows forth the anointing of the Holy Spirit working in the believer‟s life. Wine reveals the pure teaching
of the word of God. New wine shows the anointing. Old wine, traditions.
Luke 10:34. And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast,
and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
The despised Samaritan had what was required in the time of need. Religion and tradition, typified by the priest
and the Levite, are of no use whatsoever. The Christian is required to allow the Holy Spirit to work the
necessary qualities in his life, in order to be prepared for this coming day.
Hebrews 1:9. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed
thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
There will be a SPECIAL PROTECTION for the elect during the times of FAMINE that are yet to engulf the
earth.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 93

It is GOD ALMIGHTY that calls for FAMINES! They are forecast by Him.
2 Kings 6:25. And there was a great famine in Samaria: and, behold, they besieged it, until an ass‟s head was
sold for fourscore pieces of silver, and the fourth part of a cab of dove‟s dung for five pieces of silver.
2 Kings 7:1. Then Elisha said, Hear ye the word of the LORD; Thus saith the LORD, To morrow about this
time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of
Samaria.
2 Kings 8:1. Then spake Elisha unto the woman, whose son he had restored to life, saying, Arise, and go thou
and thine household, and sojourn wheresoever thou canst sojourn: for the LORD hath called for a famine; and it
shall also come upon the land seven years.
Jeremiah 16:4. They shall die of grievous deaths; they shall not be lamented; neither shall they be buried; but
they shall be as dung upon the face of the earth: and they shall be consumed by the sword, and by famine; and
their carcases shall be meat for the fowls of heaven, and for the beasts of the earth.
Haggai 1:11, 2:16-17. And I called for a drought upon the land, and upon the mountains, and upon the corn, and
upon the new wine, and upon the oil, and upon that which the ground bringeth forth, and upon men, and upon
cattle, and upon all the labour of the hands. Since those days were, when one came to an heap of twenty
measures, there were but ten: when one came to the pressfat for to draw out fifty vessels out of the press, there
were but twenty. I smote you with blasting and with mildew and with hail in all the labours of your hands; yet
ye turned not to me, saith the LORD.
Acts 11:28. And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great
dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar.

The literal aspects of the word of the Lord has hitherto been dealt with. There remains the spiritual application.

Amos 8:11-12. Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine
of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: And they shall wander from sea to sea,
and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.
2 Timothy 4:2-4. Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all
longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own
lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the
truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
It is important to point out that there will not be a FAMINE OF THE WORD OF THE LORD, but there will be
a famine in the HEARING of the word of the Lord.
The will be an abundance of the word of the Lord. Today, it is such bounty, as the church has never known in
its history. And there is still more to come. The problem does not lie here. Rather, it lies in the RECEPTIVITY
of the hearer. The hearing is not so much an intellectual understanding as it is a SPIRITUAL IMPARTATION
AND INFUSION WITH THE BELIEVER‟S SPIRIT.

This was clearly taught by the Lord Jesus in the parable of the sower. He himself, declared that if this parable
was not clearly understood, the Christian would not be able to understand ANY other PARABLE or teaching.
Mark 4:13. And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?

There is much LACK OF UNDERSTANDING of the word of the Lord, even in the present day of the
outpouring of the Holy Spirit. This is typified in the third seal by the famine conditions of the wheat and barley.
There is however, great understanding to those who will press on, and seek out the word of the Lord. This is
symbolised by the oil and wine.

THE FOURTH SEAL. Revelation 6:7-8. And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the
fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death,
and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with
sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
The word pale in the Greek language is CHLOROS, a living green colour. It is used to describe the
countenance of a person stricken with FEAR and TERROR. This deadly green describes LEPROSY.
Leviticus 13:49. And if the plague be greenish or reddish in the garment, or in the skin, either in the warp, or in
the woof, or in any thing of skin; it is a plague of leprosy, and shall be shewed unto the priest:
Leviticus 14:37. And he shall look on the plague, and, behold, if the plague be in the walls of the house with
hollow strakes, greenish or reddish, which in sight are lower than the wall;

It is correctly translated green in the following three scriptures.


Revelation 8:7. The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 94

upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
Revelation 9:4. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green
thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
Mark 6:39. And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass.
The word is further used to describe a DECAYING CORPSE.

It is important to realise that the opening of the fourth seal is NOT THE END OF THE WORLD. It is however,
one of the birth pangs preceding the day of the Lord. ONE QUARTER of the population of the entire earth will
lose their lives at this time. That will be OVER ONE BILLION PEOPLE!
WORLD WAR 1 claimed ten million lives. That was for England 1 in 66, Germany 1 in 35, and in France 1 in
28 if the respective populations.
WORLD WAR 2 saw the loss of 21 million Russian, 12 million German, 6 million Jewish, 3 million Japanese,
3 million Chinese and 1.5 million American lives. The total dead of World War 2 was 55.5 million.
WORLD WAR 3 will eclipse not only these wars, but every war in history. They will seem as nothing, when
the current nuclear stockpile is unleashed across the world.
A recent change in thinking by military heads reveals that the belief is now held that there will be an
EVENTUAL WINNER in an all out nuclear exchange.

The world populous can not ignore these sobering fact, nor bury its head in the sand. Adequate warning has
been given. Each individual must prepare. He must prepare now. He must pray that he will be worthy to
escape the things that are coming on the earth.
Luke 21:25-26. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress
of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men‟s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking
after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
The Greek word for heaven here is OURANOS, from which is derived the English word, URANIUM, the main
component of the ATOMIC BOMB!
Isaiah 24:23. The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the Lord hath spoken His word.
The Hebrew word for confounded means to DIG, TO DELVE, EXPLORE, TO PRY INTO, TO PAW, TO
SEARCH OUT.
This is exactly what happened when the surveyor space craft landed on the moon, stretched forth its mechanical
arm, DUG into the lunar surface lifted a nine inch rock from the surface to the focus of its camera eye and
relayed the history making pictures back to earth.
Acts 2:19. And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour
of smoke:
The Dutch Bible has palm trees of smoke. A palm tree describes the mushrooming cloud of an ATOMIC
EXPLOSION precisely.
The Christian‟s protection will lie in the anointing of the Lord. Bomb shelters and fall out protection areas will
be of little or no use.
Isaiah 26:1. In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God
appoint for walls and bulwarks.
Psalm 91:1-8. He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the
Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he
shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his
feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid
for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor
for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand;
but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
This passage of Scripture has never been fulfilled. It could not, until the arrival of nuclear weapons. It is a
provision for the WHITE HORSE and his RIDER to conquer death and the grave, and to escape the coming of
conflict unscathed. He will also conquer PESTILENCE. This is supernatural protection indeed!
This seal completes the fourscore judgment of the Lord.
Ezekiel 14:21. For thus saith the Lord GOD; How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon
Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the noisome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and
beast?
Matthew 24:7. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines,
and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
In Greek word for hell used here is GRAVE.
1 Kings 8:37. If there be in the land famine, if there be pestilence, blasting, mildew, locust, or if there be
caterpillar; if their enemy besiege them in the land of their cities; whatsoever plague, whatsoever sickness there
be;

Jeremiah 14:12. When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and an oblation, I
will not accept them: but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence.
WILD BEASTS. Numbers 21:6. And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people;
and much people of Israel died.
Ezekiel 33:27. Say thou thus unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; As I live, surely they that are in the wastes
shall fall by the sword, and him that is in the open field will I give to the beasts to be devoured, and they that be
in the forts and in the caves shall die of the pestilence.
Leviticus 26:22. I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your
cattle, and make you few in number; and your high ways shall be desolate.
Deuteronomy 32:24. They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter
destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.
Joshua 24:12. And I sent the hornet before you, which drave them out from before you, even the two kings of
the Amorites; but not with thy sword, nor with thy bow.
2 Kings 2:24. And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there
came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.
2 Kings 17:25. And so it was at the beginning of their dwelling there, that they feared not the LORD: therefore
the LORD sent lions among them, which slew some of them.
Jeremiah 5:6. Wherefore a lion out of the forest shall slay them, and a wolf of the evenings shall spoil them, a
leopard shall watch over their cities: every one that goeth out thence shall be torn in pieces: because their
transgressions are many, and their backslidings are increased.
Isaiah 30:6. The burden of the beasts of the south: into the land of trouble and anguish, from whence come the
young and old lion, the viper and fiery flying serpent, they will carry their riches upon the shoulders of young
asses, and their treasures upon the bunches of camels, to a people that shall not profit them.
1 Chronicles 21:12. Either three years‟ famine; or three months to be destroyed before thy foes, while that the
sword of thine enemies overtaketh thee; or else three days the sword of the LORD, even the pestilence, in the
land, and the angel of the LORD destroying throughout all the coasts of Israel. Now therefore advise thyself
what word I shall bring again to him that sent me.
Jeremiah 21:7. And afterward, saith the LORD, I will deliver Zedekiah king of Judah, and his servants, and the
people, and such as are left in this city from the pestilence, from the sword, and from the famine, into the hand
of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, and into the hand of their enemies, and into the hand of those that seek
their life: and he shall smite them with the edge of the sword; he shall not spare them, neither have pity, nor
have mercy.
Jeremiah 24:10. And I will send the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, among them, till they be consumed
from off the land that I gave unto them and to their fathers.
Jeremiah 44:13. For I will punish them that dwell in the land of Egypt, as I have punished Jerusalem, by the
sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence:
Ezekiel 6:11,12. Thus saith the Lord GOD; Smite with thine hand, and stamp with thy foot, and say, Alas for all
the evil abominations of the house of Israel! for they shall fall by the sword, by the famine, and by the
pestilence. He that is far off shall die of the pestilence; and he that is near shall fall by the sword; and he that
remaineth and is besieged shall die by the famine: thus will I accomplish my fury upon them.
The WHITE HORSE and his rider penetrate the horror of this seal. There is escape for them as there was
escape for NOAH. In his days the earth was filled with violence and corruption.
There is escape for them as there was for LOT when Sodom and Gommorah were destroyed.
There is escape for them as there was for the EARLY CHRISTIANS in the destruction of the temple in A.D. 70.
The false prophets called the people to the temple. The Lord Jesus had warned his people to flee Jerusalem.
The plague that besieged Jerusalem was one of the worst in the history of the world. It foreshadows events that
are predicted for these last days.
As the end time believer responds to the touch of the rider‟s commands he will be guided through all these seals
to complete safety.

There will be a PERFECTED, MATURE BRIDE for the Lord Jesus at His coming!

Psalm 27:5. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he
hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
Isaiah 26:20-21. Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as
it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to
punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more
cover her slain.
Psalm 31:20. Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them
secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 96

Luke 17:37. Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.
Revelation 19:17-18. And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the
fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of
horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
There will be a minor fulfillment of these verses at this time. Their major and ultimate fulfillment will be during
the great tribulation period, and the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Ezekiel 5:17. So will I send upon you famine and evil beasts, and they shall bereave thee; and pestilence and
blood shall pass through thee; and I will bring the sword upon thee. I the LORD have spoken it.
Ezekiel 39:17-21. And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to
every beast of the field, 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.
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. 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. 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. 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.
Jeremiah 15:2,3. And it shall come to pass, if they say unto thee, Whither shall we go forth? then thou shalt tell
them, Thus saith the LORD; Such as are for death, to death; and such as are for the sword, to the sword; and
such as are for the famine, to the famine; and such as are for the captivity, to the captivity. And I will appoint
over them four kinds, saith the LORD: the sword to slay, and the dogs to tear, and the fowls of the heaven, and
the beasts of the earth, to devour and destroy.
Exodus 11:4-7. And Moses said, Thus saith the LORD, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt:
And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne,
even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts. And there shall
be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more. But
against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know
how that the LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.
Exodus 10:21-23. And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be
darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt. And Moses stretched forth his hand toward
heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days: They saw not one another, neither
rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.

As judgment fell on Israel, the children of God were PROTECTED. So shall it be in these last day of time.
Again, a minor fulfillment of these scriptures occurs at this the opening of the fourth seal. The major fulfillment
is during the great tribulation period.

A pattern with the seven seals is observed here. They divide into FOUR and THREE. There are four horseman
and three without horses. A similar pattern is seen in the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN PARABLES taught by the
Lord Jesus in Matthew 13.
Four parables are taught outside, three inside the house, with the CREATIVE AND REDEMPTIVE WEEKS,
the four days from Adam to Christ are contrasted with the three days succeeding the cross. In the sounding of
the seven trumpets in Revelation chapters 8-11 the same division exists.

THE FIFTH SEAL. Revelation 6:9-11. And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls
of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud
voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on
the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest
yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should
be fulfilled.

The opening of this seal is directed towards the saints of God. Likewise are the 1st, 6th and seventh. This is in
contrast to the second, third and fourth which are directed to the world populous. The opening of this seal sees
PERSECUTION and MARTYDOM of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Matthew 24:9-13. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all
nations for my name‟s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one
another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the
love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 97

John 16:2. They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will
think that he doeth God service.
Matthew 10:16-23. Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents,
and harmless as doves. But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge
you in their synagogues; And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony
against them and the Gentiles. But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it
shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father
which speaketh in you. And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the
children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men
for my name‟s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. But when they persecute you in this city,
flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man
be come.
2 Timothy 3:12-13. Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and
seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

FIVE is the number of blood. There were five wounds in the body of the Lord Jesus upon the cross. These
were to encounter the five I will‟s of Satan. It is here, under the fifth seal that martyrs and the persecution of the
followers of the Lord Jesus is seen. The Christian is here warned of what is to unfold in the days that lie ahead.
He is sternly admonished to understand that a man‟s life does not consist in the abundance of things he
possesses. Through he is in this world yet not of it, he is warned to be prepared to leave it at any time.

The souls were seen UNDER THE ALTAR. The pattern of things on earth are the same as the pattern in the
heavens. Likewise, the pattern is constant throughout the Book of Revelation.
Revelation 8:5. And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and
there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
Revelation 14:18. And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud
cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the
earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.
Exodus 25:9,40. According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the
instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it. And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was
shewed thee in the mount.
Hebrews 8:5. Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God
when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern
shewed to thee in the mount.
Hebrews 9:23. It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with
these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.
Leviticus 4:7. And the priest shall put some of the blood upon the horns of the altar of sweet incense before the
LORD, which is in the tabernacle of the congregation; and shall pour all the blood of the bullock at the bottom
of the altar of the burnt offering, which is at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
Leviticus 17:11-14. For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an
atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul. Therefore I said unto the
children of Israel, No soul of you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourneth among you eat blood.
And whatsoever man there be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, which
hunteth and catcheth any beast or fowl that may be eaten; he shall even pour out the blood thereof, and cover it
with dust. For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof: therefore I said unto the children of
Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whosoever
eateth it shall be cut off.
The shedding of the blood of these martyrs then, is the OFFERING OF THEIR LIVES to the Lord.
It was in this vein that the Apostle Paul spoke of his life.
2 Timothy 4:6. For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.
These martyrs were slain for the WORD OF THE LORD and their TESTIMONY.
Revelation 1:2,9. Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things
that he saw. I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience
of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.
Revelation 12:17. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her
seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
Revelation 20:4. 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 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;
and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 98

HOW LONG? These souls were instructed that it was for yet a little season, until some of their fellowservants
and brethren be killed as they were. This reference is both to the current martyrdom and to the tribulation saints
that will be slain during this period of time.
It is estimated that 60% of Christendom is currently under persecution.
Psalm 79:5-10. How long, LORD? Wilt thou be angry for ever? Shall thy jealousy burn like fire? Pour out thy
wrath upon the heathen that have not known thee, and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon thy name.
For they have devoured Jacob, and laid waste his dwelling place. O remember not against us former iniquities:
let thy tender mercies speedily prevent us: for we are brought very low. Help us, O God of our salvation, for
the glory of thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy name‟s sake. Wherefore should the
heathen say, Where is their God? let him be known among the heathen in our sight by the revenging of the
blood of thy servants which is shed.
Romans 12:19. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written,
Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
Genesis 4:1-11. And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man
from the LORD. And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of
the ground. And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto
the LORD. And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had
respect unto Abel and to his offering: But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very
wroth, and his countenance fell. And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy
countenance fallen? If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the
door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. And Cain talked with Abel his brother:
and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him. And
the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother‟s keeper? And
he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother‟s blood crieth unto me from the ground. And now art
thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother‟s blood from thy hand;
The FIRST MARTYR was Abel. The Lord declares of him that his blood crieth from the ground.
Hebrews 11:4. By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained
witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.
Luke 18:1-8. And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: And there was a widow in
that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a while: but
afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; Yet because this widow troubleth me,
I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge
saith. And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with
them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find
faith on the earth?
The widow was approaching her case with FAITH and ENDURANCE. It is by these two qualities that the
promises of God are realised. Faith alone is not enough.
Hebrews 6:12,15. That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the
promises. And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.
Hebrews 10:36. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the
promise.
Her cry was identical to those under the alter seen at the opening of the fifth seal. AVENGE ME OF MY
ADVERSARY. Her request was not immediately fulfilled. She, like these martyrs, was told to WAIT. It was
through this time of waiting that her faith was made strong. Jesus taught, and this was the whole point of the
parable, that men ought always to pray; not give up at the first sign of opposition. HOLD ON. This parable is a
classic illustration of IMPORTUNITY. It shows the success principle of PERSISTANCE and
DETERMINATION. She knew exactly what she wanted. So did the martyrs. Avenge us of our adversaries.
God will! It may take time, but the request will be granted.
That the parable is for the END TIME CHURCH is shown in the closing statement, when the Son of man
cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? YES, HE SHALL!
Job 39:30. Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is she.
Psalm 79:1-3. O God, the heathen are come into thine inheritance; thy holy temple have they defiled; they have
laid Jerusalem on heaps. The dead bodies of thy servants have they given to be meat unto the fowls of the
heaven, the flesh of thy saints unto the beasts of the earth. Their blood have they shed like water round about
Jerusalem; and there was none to bury them.
Psalm 10:1. Why standest thou afar off, O LORD? why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble?
Psalm 54:5. He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: cut them off in thy truth.
Psalm 55:9. Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues: for I have seen violence and strife in the city.
Psalm 94:1-4,21. O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew

thyself. Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud. LORD, how long shall the
wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph? How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the
workers of iniquity boast themselves? Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth
mischief by a law?

WHITE ROBES. Revelation 3:4. Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments;
and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.
Genesis 41:42. And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph‟s hand, and arrayed him in
vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck;
Genesis 45:22. To all of them he gave each man changes of raiment; but to Benjamin he gave three hundred
pieces of silver, and five changes of raiment.
Esther 6:8-9. Let the royal apparel be brought which the king useth to wear, and the horse that the king rideth
upon, and the crown royal which is set upon his head: And let this apparel and horse be delivered to the hand of
one of the king‟s most noble princes, that they may array the man withal whom the king delighteth to honour,
and bring him on horseback through the street of the city, and proclaim before him, Thus shall it be done to the
man whom the king delighteth to honour.
Zechariah 3:5. And I said, Let them set a fair mitre upon his head. So they set a fair mitre upon his head, and
clothed him with garments. And the angel of the LORD stood by.
Revelation 7:9. After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and
kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and
palms in their hands;

MILLIONS of people had been killed under the second, third, and fourth seal. These were not martyrs. Those
seen under the fifth seal are slain for the word of God and testimony of Jesus Christ. The Apostle John was
banished to the isle of Patmos for the same reason.
It is to be observed that killing these believers is NOT THE END of them. John heard them speaking. This was
beyond the grave. It was not just their blood speaking, as in the case of Abel. This was the very soul
consciousness in the after life of those who had been slain for the word of God and the testimony of Jesus
Christ.
Matthew 10:28. And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him
which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
Luke 20:38. For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him.
Luke 23:43. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
Philippians 1:23. For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far
better:
Philippians 1:21. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

One of the most graphic illustrations of life after death is seen in Luke 16:19-31. In this case it concerns the
death of a believer and an unbeliever. It shows that state of both. There was a certain rich man, which was
clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named
Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the
rich man‟s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and
was carried by the angels into Abraham‟s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up
his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said,
Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool
my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime
receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to
you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. Then he said, I pray thee therefore,
father, that thou wouldest send him to my father‟s house: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto
them, lest they also come into this place of torment. Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the
prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they
will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded,
though one rose from the dead.
Each person in this scene has the faculties of SIGHT, HEARING, SPEECH, FEELING and TASTE. While this
rich man was in hell, his five brothers were alive on earth.

BENEATH THE ALTAR. Hebrews 8:1-5. Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have
such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; A minister of the
sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man. For every high priest is ordained to
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 100

offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer. For if he were
on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law: Who serve
unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make
the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.
Hebrews 9:21-24. Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry.
And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. It was
therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly
things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with
hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:

The CRY is directed toward God; for Him to do something.

A most inspiring and informative book that every Christian should be well versed with is FOXE‟S BOOK OF
MARTYRS.

Being in a state of relative peace and prosperity, and finding oneself in the so-called age of enlightenment and
civilisation, it is beyond the reach of many to even contemplate such atrocities, barbarianism, and man‟s
inhumanity to man.

Let every Christian believer be warned! The reason that an immediate answer to the martyr‟s cry is not
forthcoming is that there are yet fellowservants and brethren to be killed as they were. A PERSECUTION will
come upon the church to fulfill this declaration. The fifth seal exposes such a time.
A major persecution and martyrdom however is also scheduled for the coming TRIBULATION.
Hebrews 12:22-24. But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly
Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn,
which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to
Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of
Abel.
Matthew 23:34-36. Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them
ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to
city: That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel
unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. Verily I say unto
you, All these things shall come upon this generation.

VENGEANCE. Deuteronomy 32:43. Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people: for he will avenge the blood of
his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, and to his people.
An expression of the persecution of the saint in the end time is shown in Daniel 3:19,20. Then was
Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and
Abednego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it
was wont to be heated. And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach,
Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace.
The seven times is prophetic of the end time.
Revelation 17:6. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs
of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
The fall of Babylon is specifically detailed in Revelation 18.
Verses 20 and 24 only will be considered, at this point. Here is seen the vengeance of God that has been called
for by the martyrs.
Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. And in her
was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

THE SIXTH SEAL. Revelation 6:12 – 7:17. And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there
was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the
stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty
wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were
moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief
captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the
rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that
sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be
able to stand? And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four
winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. And I saw
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 101

another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the
four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor
the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which
were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of
Israel. Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand.
Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe
of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe
of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of
Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of
Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand. After this I beheld,
and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues,
stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried
with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. And all the
angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their
faces, and worshipped God, Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour,
and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen. And one of the elders answered, saying unto
me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou
knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes,
and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day
and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more,
neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of
the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all
tears from their eyes.

The sixth seal is divided into THREE SECTIONS. Firstly, the SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS. Secondly, the
SEALING OF THE 144,000. Thirdly, the GREAT MULTITUDE OF PALMWAVING, WHITE ROBED
SAINTS.

EARTHQUAKE. Isaiah 13:6-13. Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction
from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man‟s heart shall melt: And they shall be
afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be
amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames. Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with
wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of
heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and
the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their
iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I
will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. Therefore I will
shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day
of his fierce anger.
Isaiah 24:19-23. The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly.
The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof
shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD
shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. And they shall
be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days
shall they be visited. Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall
reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.
Isaiah 2:10-22. Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his
majesty. The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the
LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is
proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: And upon all the cedars of
Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan, And upon all the high mountains, and
upon all the hills that are lifted up, And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall, And upon all the
ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant pictures. And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the
haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. And the idols he shall
utterly abolish. And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the
LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. In that day a man shall cast
his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to
the bats; To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for
the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his
nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?

Matthew 24:7,29,30. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be
famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall
the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers
of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all
the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and
great glory.
Luke 21:25-33. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress
of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men‟s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking
after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they
see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to
pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. And he spake to them a parable;
Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that
summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom
of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Heaven
and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

The phrase, this generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled, should be amended to read, this generation
shall not pass away, till these things BEGIN TO HAPPEN. This is likewise true of Matthew 24:34. This
should be altered to read, this generation shall not pass, till all these things BEGIN TO TAKE PLACE.
This, then, has a dual aspect. First, there is a immediate fulfillment to the generation to which the Lord Jesus
was speaking. Secondly, there was to be a fulfillment in this END TIME GENERATION, the generation that
commenced with the establishing of the nation of Israel again in the earth. The point is taken that the return of
the Lord Jesus is NOT REQUIRED to be fulfilled within one generation after 1948, that is 1988. The signs
listed in Matthew 24 are to BEGIN to take place within this period.

Amos 8:8. Shall not the land tremble for this, and every one mourn that dwelleth therein? and it shall rise up
wholly as a flood; and it shall be cast out and drowned, as by the flood of Egypt.
Ezekiel 38:19. 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;
Joel 2:10,28-32. The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be
dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my
spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your
young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out
my spirit. And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The
sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD
come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in
mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD
shall call.
Haggai 2:6-7. For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and
the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come:
and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.

Note the timing of the glory of God fulfilling the church. It occurs at the time of great shaking of the heavens
and the earth, and the signs in the sun, the moon and the stars.
2 Peter 3:7-13. But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto
fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing,
that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack
concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any
should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night;
in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the
earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved,
what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the
coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with
fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein
dwelleth righteousness.
2 Thessalonians 1:8. In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel
of our Lord Jesus Christ:
Matthew 24:35. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
Isaiah 34:4. And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll:
and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.

Isaiah 2:21-22. To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD,
and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. Cease ye from man, whose breath is
in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?

such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And every island fled
away, and the mountains were not found.
Exodus 19:18. And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and
the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.
Matthew 28:2. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven,
and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
Luke 21:24-28. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and
Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. And there shall be
signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea
and the waves roaring; Men‟s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming
on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a
cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your
heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
Matthew 27:51. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth
did quake, and the rocks rent;
Hebrews 12:26-28. Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I
shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things
that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we
receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with
reverence and godly fear:

THE SUN AND THE MOON DARKENED. Isaiah 50:3. I clothe the heavens with blackness, and I make
sackcloth their covering.

from the fig tree.

because they were made bitter. And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the
third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day
shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.

given the key of the bottomless pit.

shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.

and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.
Psalm 102:25-26. Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.
They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou
change them, and they shall be changed:

Isaiah 24:19-23. The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly.

shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD
shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. And they shall
be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days
shall they be visited. Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall

MOUNTAINS AND ISLANDS MOVED. Jeremiah 4:24. I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and

world, and all that dwell therein.

shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things

Matthew 27:45-51. Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. And
about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my
God, why hast thou forsaken me? Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth
for Elias. And straightway one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed,
and gave him to drink. The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him. Jesus, when he had
cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from

of Egypt three days:
Matthew 28:2. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven,
and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

The SIGNS unveiled under the sixth seal are also historic events that are used to FORECAST THE END OF
THE WORLD and the COMING OF THE SON OF GOD.
The effect of these occurrences is that they strike panic, fear and terror in the lives of the peoples of the earth.
Even the great and mighty men, the hardened, seasoned soldiers, used to seeing death on every hand, are greatly
moved. They cry for the rocks and mountains to fall on them! This will be the GREATEST WORLD WIDE
PRAYER MEETING OF ALL TIME. And what a prayer! The effect of seeing wrath on the Lamb‟s face, and
the knowledge that the GREAT DAY OF HIS WRATH IS COME, are the motivating factors for every man,
woman, boy and girl, to cry out!
Psalm 2:2. The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and
against his anointed.

This is in direct contrast to the people of God, who are PREPARED to meet the Lamb.
Psalm 68:4. Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH,
and rejoice before him.
Psalm 97:5. The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole
earth.
Isaiah 13:6-8. Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.
Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man‟s heart shall melt: And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows
shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another;
their faces shall be as flames.
Zephaniah 1:14-18. The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day
of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a
day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, A day
of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers. And I will bring distress upon
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 105

men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be
poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in
the day of the LORD‟S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make
even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.
Joel 2:1. Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the
land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;
Micah 1:2-4. Hear, all ye people; hearken, O earth, and all that therein is: and let the Lord GOD be witness
against you, the Lord from his holy temple. For, behold, the LORD cometh forth out of his place, and will come
down, and tread upon the high places of the earth. And the mountains shall be molten under him, and the
valleys shall be cleft, as wax before the fire, and as the waters that are poured down a steep place.
Malachi 3:1-3. Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom
ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he
shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he
appeareth? for he is like a refiner‟s fire, and like fullers‟ soap: And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver:
and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an
offering in righteousness.
Joel 2:11. And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that
executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?
Hosea 10:8. The high places also of Aven, the sin of Israel, shall be destroyed: the thorn and the thistle shall
come up on their altars; and they shall say to the mountains, Cover us; and to the hills, Fall on us.
Luke 23:30. Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.

While these SIGNS strike fear into the heart of the unbeliever, they are in fact the exhortation to the Christian to
LIFT UP HIS HEAD, it is the time his redemption draws nigh, it is the time of the establishing of the kingdom
of God.
Luke 21:25-31. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress
of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men‟s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking
after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they
see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to
pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. And he spake to them a parable;
Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that
summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom
of God is nigh at hand.
This negative reaction stems back to the progenitors of the human race.
Genesis 3:8. And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and
Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.

The PRESENCE OF GOD is far more feared by man than death.

Matthew 25:24-26,30. Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art
an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: And I was afraid,
and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine. His lord answered and said unto him,
Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not
strawed: And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Matthew 24:21. For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this
time, no, nor ever shall be.
Mark 13:19. For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God
created unto this time, neither shall be.

FOUR WINDS. These represent the FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH, north, east, south and west. The
winds were HELD BACK until the SERVANTS OF GOD were SEALED in their foreheads.
Isaiah 11:12. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather
together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
Jeremiah 49:36. And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter
them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come.
Daniel 7:2. Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove
upon the great sea.
Daniel 8:8. Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for
it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.
Daniel 11:4. And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four

winds of heaven; and not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall
be plucked up, even for others beside those.
Zechariah 6:1-5. And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out
from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass. In the first chariot were red horses;
and in the second chariot black horses; And in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot grisled
and bay horses. Then I answered and said unto the angel that talked with me, What are these, my lord? And the
angel answered and said unto me, These are the four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before
the Lord of all the earth.
Revelation 20:8. 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.
Matthew 24:31. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his
elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

THE SEAL OF GOD. The angel with the seal of the living God ascended from the EAST.
Matthew 2:2. Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are
come to worship him.
The seal of God is THREEFOLD. There is a primary seal of BLOOD, the intermediate seal of WATER, and
the concluding seal of the SPIRIT.
Ezekiel 9:1-7. He cried also in mine ears with a loud voice, saying, Cause them that have charge over the city to
draw near, even every man with his destroying weapon in his hand. And, behold, six men came from the way of
the higher gate, which lieth toward the north, and every man a slaughter weapon in his hand; and one man
among them was clothed with linen, with a writer‟s inkhorn by his side: and they went in, and stood beside the
brasen altar. And the glory of the God of Israel was gone up from the cherub, whereupon he was, to the
threshold of the house. And he called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer‟s inkhorn by his side;
And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark
upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.
And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare,
neither have ye pity: Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near
any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were
before the house. And he said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go ye forth. And
they went forth, and slew in the city.
Ephesians 1:13-14. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation:
in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our
inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
Ephesians 4:30. And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
2 Corinthians 1:21-22. Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; Who
hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

In the Holy Land a SEAL ON A DOCUMENT is more important that the writer‟s signature. It is the SEAL that
establishes the AUTHENTICITY of the writing. Likewise the seal of God establishes the authority of the
believer. Rulers would often have their seal on a SIGNET RING. The major truth with the application of any
seal is that of POSSESSION. The seal established the right of OWNERSHIP.
Genesis 41:42. And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph‟s hand, and arrayed him in
vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck;
Esther 3:10. And the king took his ring from his hand, and gave it unto Haman the son of Hammedatha the
Agagite, the Jews‟ enemy.
Esther 8:2. And the king took off his ring, which he had taken from Haman, and gave it unto Mordecai. And
Esther set Mordecai over the house of Haman.
Daniel 6:17. And a stone was brought, and laid upon the mouth of the den; and the king sealed it with his own
signet, and with the signet of his lords; that the purpose might not be changed concerning Daniel.
Matthew 27:66. So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.

THE LIVING GOD. Matthew 22:32. I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?
God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.
Luke 24:5. And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye
the living among the dead?

THE SEAL [MARK] OF THE BEAST is in direct opposition to the seal of God.
Revelation 13:16-18. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark
in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 107

name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the
number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
Revelation 14:9-11. And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast
and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the
wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented
with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of
their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his
image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
Revelation 19:20. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him,
with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image.
These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
Revelation 20:4. 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 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;
and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
1 Kings 19:18. And have cast their gods into the fire: for they were no gods, but the work of men‟s hands, wood
and stone: therefore they have destroyed them.
Romans 11:4. But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who
have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.

THE 144,000. The number comprises al the tribes of spiritual Israel, the Church.
Romans 2:28-29. For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in
the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in
the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
Romans 9:6-7. Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of
Israel: Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be
called.
Galatians 3:28-29. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor
female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ‟s, then are ye Abraham‟s seed, and heirs
according to the promise.
Galatians 6:16. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel
of God.
Philippians 3:3. For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and
have no confidence in the flesh.

1 Chronicles 9:1-3. So all Israel were reckoned by genealogies; and, behold, they were written in the book of
the kings of Israel and Judah, who were carried away to Babylon for their transgression. Now the first
inhabitants that dwelt in their possessions in their cities were, the Israelites, the priests, Levites, and the
Nethinims. And in Jerusalem dwelt of the children of Judah, and of the children of Benjamin, and of the
children of Ephraim, and Manasseh;
1 Kings 12:16-19. So when all Israel saw that the king hearkened not unto them, the people answered the king,
saying, What portion have we in David? neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse: to your tents, O Israel:
now see to thine own house, David. So Israel departed unto their tents. But as for the children of Israel which
dwelt in the cities of Judah, Rehoboam reigned over them. Then king Rehoboam sent Adoram, who was over
the tribute; and all Israel stoned him with stones, that he died. Therefore king Rehoboam made speed to get him
up to his chariot, to flee to Jerusalem. So Israel rebelled against the house of David unto this day.
2 Kings 17:18. Therefore the LORD was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight: there was
none left but the tribe of Judah only.

The first king of UNITED ISRAEL was Saul, who reigned for FORTY YEARS. David succeeded Saul, who
also reigned FORTY years. Solomon reigned also for FORTY years. He was the last king of the United
Kingdom. Thus, united Israel lasted for exactly ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY YEARS. This speaks of the
END OF ALL FLESH. At this time the kingdom was divided, the SOUTHERN tribe of Judah was ruled over
by Jeroboam. They went into captivity in 606B.C. The NORTHERN kingdom‟s king was Rehoboam. This
was known as Israel. These tribes went into captivity to the Assyrians in 721B.C. From there they were
dispersed to various parts of the world. They were to return. Judah, returned after the seventy years captivity
under Ezra and Nehemiah. It will be seen from this therefore that the Jews, or modern Israel comprise but two
tribes, Judah and Benjamin.

2 Chronicles 36:10. And when the year was expired, king Nebuchadnezzar sent, and brought him to Babylon,
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 108

with the goodly vessels of the house of the LORD, and made Zedekiah his brother king over Judah and
Jerusalem.

Joshua 19:40-48. And the seventh lot came out for the tribe of the children of Dan according to their families.
And the coast of their inheritance was Zorah, and Eshtaol, and Irshemesh, And Shaalabbin, and Ajalon, and
Jethlah, And Elon, and Thimnathah, and Ekron, And Eltekeh, and Gibbethon, and Baalath, And Jehud, and
Beneberak, and Gathrimmon, And Mejarkon, and Rakkon, with the border before Japho. And the coast of the
children of Dan went out too little for them: therefore the children of Dan went up to fight against Leshem, and
took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and possessed it, and dwelt therein, and called Leshem, Dan,
after the name of Dan their father. This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Dan according to their
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 110

families, these cities with their villages.


Genesis 49:16,17. Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel. Dan shall be a serpent by the way,
an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.
Judges 18:30-31. And the children of Dan set up the graven image: and Jonathan, the son of Gershom, the son
of Manasseh, he and his sons were priests to the tribe of Dan until the day of the captivity of the land.
And they set them up Micah‟s graven image, which he made, all the time that the house of God was in Shiloh.

The SERPENT is the symbol of the DEVIL. Judas, the one who betrayed the Lord, was one of Christ‟s own
disciples. He came from WITHIN THE RANKS of the people of God.
1 John 2:18-19. Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are
there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. They went out from us, but they were not of us;
for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be
made manifest that they were not all of us.
Deuteronomy 29:18-21. Lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart
turneth away this day from the LORD our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations; lest there should be
among you a root that beareth gall and wormwood; And it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this
curse, that he bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I walk in the imagination of mine
heart, to add drunkenness to thirst: The LORD will not spare him, but then the anger of the LORD and his
jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the curses that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and the
LORD shall blot out his name from under heaven. And the LORD shall separate him unto evil out of all the
tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant that are written in this book of the law:
1 Kings 12:28-30. Whereupon the king took counsel, and made two calves of gold, and said unto them, It is too
much for you to go up to Jerusalem: behold thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
And he set the one in Bethel, and the other put he in Dan. And this thing became a sin: for the people went to
worship before the one, even unto Dan.

The people that constitute the 144,000 under this seal, are the SAME PERSONS in Revelation 7:1-8, and
Revelation 14:1-5. In Revelation 14, their ministry is completed.
And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand,
having his Father‟s name written in their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many
waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they
sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn
that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These are they
which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever
he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their
mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.
The 144,000 are a PART OF THE BRIDE, and END TIME CHURCH that is to be married to the Lord Jesus
Christ. They have a major function in the completed MYSTERY OF GOD.
Revelation 10:7. But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of
God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
A MYSTERY is a SECRET revealed to INITIATED PEOPLE.

TWELVE is the number of perfect government.

The 144,000 are shadowed in both the Old and New Testaments.
Genesis 6:13-16. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with
violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Make thee an ark of gopher wood;
rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. And this is the fashion which
thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the
height of it thirty cubits. A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the
door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.
The measurements of the ark are 300 x 50 x 30. This totals 450,000. The factors of this sum are 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 x
5 x 144. This reveals the truth that the 144,000 will PRODUCE A CREATION through the fully manifested
powers of the atoning work of Christ. THE ARK WAS A VESSEL THAT PRODUCED A CREATION TO
POPULATE THE NEW EARTH. The 144,000 will be the instruments therefore that will bring forth the
FIRSTFRUITS OF A NEW CREATION, a creation that needs NO REDEMPTION, to POPULATE THE NEW
HEAVENS AND THE NEW EARTH!

Genesis 15:13-14. And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is
not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; And also that nation, whom they
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 111

shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.
400 years x 360 days, the number of days in a Jewish year, equals 144,000! This was the ministry of
SUFFERING endured by the children of Israel. At the conclusion of this period of time, a nation was to be
delivered, separated, drawn from Egypt. Here is shown the suffering ministry of the 144,000, that will bring
forth a NATION, separated fully for the purpose of God.

Exodus 28:15-30. And thou shalt make the breastplate of judgment with cunning work; after the work of the
ephod thou shalt make it; of gold, of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine twined linen, shalt thou make
it. Foursquare it shall be being doubled; a span shall be the length thereof, and a span shall be the breadth
thereof. And thou shalt set in it settings of stones, even four rows of stones: the first row shall be a sardius, a
topaz, and a carbuncle: this shall be the first row. And the second row shall be an emerald, a sapphire, and a
diamond. And the third row a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst. And the fourth row a beryl, and an onyx, and a
jasper: they shall be set in gold in their inclosings. And the stones shall be with the names of the children of
Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet; every one with his name shall they be
according to the twelve tribes. And thou shalt make upon the breastplate chains at the ends of wreathen work of
pure gold. And thou shalt make upon the breastplate two rings of gold, and shalt put the two rings on the two
ends of the breastplate. And thou shalt put the two wreathen chains of gold in the two rings which are on the
ends of the breastplate. And the other two ends of the two wreathen chains thou shalt fasten in the two ouches,
and put them on the shoulderpieces of the ephod before it. And thou shalt make two rings of gold, and thou
shalt put them upon the two ends of the breastplate in the border thereof, which is in the side of the ephod
inward. And two other rings of gold thou shalt make, and shalt put them on the two sides of the ephod
underneath, toward the forepart thereof, over against the other coupling thereof, above the curious girdle of the
ephod. And they shall bind the breastplate by the rings thereof unto the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue,
that it may be above the curious girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate be not loosed from the ephod. And
Aaron shall bear the names of the children of Israel in the breastplate of judgment upon his heart, when he goeth
in unto the holy place, for a memorial before the LORD continually. And thou shalt put in the breastplate of
judgment the Urim and the Thummim; and they shall be upon Aaron‟s heart, when he goeth in before the
LORD: and Aaron shall bear the judgment of the children of Israel upon his heart before the LORD continually.

The breastplate was secured on the body of the high priest over his HEART. Within the breastplate were placed
the Urim and Thummin. No one knew exactly what these were, although it is commonly supposed that they
were two stones used for the purpose of ascertaining the will of God. The meaning of the names, Urim and
Thummin, is LIGHTS and PERFECTIONS. Twelve stones were fastened on the outside of the breastplate.
These were for each of the twelve tribes of Israel.

From the 144,000 will come forth a creation of TOTAL LIGHT, a PERFECTED BODY.
2 Chronicles 3:8-9. And he made the most holy house, the length whereof was according to the breadth of the
house, twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof twenty cubits: and he overlaid it with fine gold, amounting to six
hundred talents. And the weight of the nails was fifty shekels of gold. And he overlaid the upper chambers with
gold.
The MOST HOLY PLACE was to HOUSE THE GLORY OF GOD! It was overlaid with six hundred talents of
fine gold. A talent comprised three thousand shekels. A half shekel was to make an atonement for a soul.
Exodus 30:11-16. And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, When thou takest the sum of the children of Israel
after their number, then shall they give every man a ransom for his soul unto the LORD, when thou numberest
them; that there be no plague among them, when thou numberest them. This they shall give, every one that
passeth among them that are numbered, half a shekel after the shekel of the sanctuary: (a shekel is twenty
gerahs:) an half shekel shall be the offering of the LORD. Every one that passeth among them that are
numbered, from twenty years old and above, shall give an offering unto the LORD. The rich shall not give
more, and the poor shall not give less than half a shekel, when they give an offering unto the LORD, to make an
atonement for your souls. And thou shalt take the atonement money of the children of Israel, and shalt appoint
it for the service of the tabernacle of the congregation; that it may be a memorial unto the children of Israel
before the LORD, to make an atonement for your souls.
Six thousand half shekels is equal to one talent of gold.
6,000 x 600 = 3,600,000 = 5 x 5 x 144,000.
From this illustration it will be observed that in order for the 144,000 to FULFILL THEIR MINISTRY they will
have to be OVERSHADOWED by the FULL ORBED GLORY OF GOD!
The weight of the nails was FIFTY shekels. Fifty is the number of PENTECOST and the HOLY SPIRIT. Only
by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT can the office of the 144,000 be executed.

1 Chronicles 25:6-7. All these were under the hands of their father for song in the house of the LORD, with
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 112

cymbals, psalteries, and harps, for the service of the house of God, according to the king‟s order to Asaph,
Jeduthun, and Heman. So the number of them, with their brethren that were instructed in the songs of the
LORD, even all that were cunning, was two hundred fourscore and eight. [144 x 2]
2 Chronicles 5:12-14. Also the Levites which were the singers, all of them of Asaph, of Heman, of Jeduthun,
with their sons and their brethren, being arrayed in white linen, having cymbals and psalteries and harps, stood
at the east end of the altar, and with them an hundred and twenty priests sounding with trumpets:) It came even
to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the
LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and
praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a
cloud, even the house of the LORD; So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the
glory of the LORD had filled the house of God.
288 is 144 x 2. In this illustration it is shown that the 144,000 have a MINISTRY OF WORSHIP IN SONG
AND MUSIC. The operation of their ministry draws the presence of the Lord to such an extent that His glory is
precipitated in the temple. This is a prophetic pointer to the temple of the Lord, human bodies, in the last days.
The 120 points to the 120th Jubilee, or 120 x 50 = 6000 years of the redemptive week. The function of the
144,000 is to take place therefore at the 120th JUBILEE, that is, IMMEDIATELY PRIOR TO THE SECOND
COMING OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
Revelation 14:3. And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the
elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed
from the earth.

Ezekiel 43:15-17. So the altar shall be four cubits; and from the altar and upward shall be four horns. And the
altar shall be twelve cubits long, twelve broad, square in the four squares thereof. And the settle shall be
fourteen cubits long and fourteen broad in the four squares thereof; and the border about it shall be half a cubit;
and the bottom thereof shall be a cubit about; and his stairs shall look toward the east.
THE ALTAR is also rendered, HAREL, the MOUNTAINS OF GOD and ARIEL, the LION OF GOD.
Revelation 14:1. And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and
four thousand, having his Father‟s name written in their foreheads.
The LAMB/LION is the Lord Jesus. The mountain of God is Mount SION. The 144,000 are present.

Genesis 2:8. And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had
formed.
The word eastward has a numerical value of 144. The GARDEN houses the PERFECT, MATURE MAN the
Lord had created. The TREE OF LIFE was in the midst of the garden.
Song of Solomon 4:12-16. A garden inclosed is my sister, my spouse; a spring shut up, a fountain sealed. Thy
plants are an orchard of pomegranates, with pleasant fruits; camphire, with spikenard, Spikenard and saffron;
calamus and cinnamon, with all trees of frankincense; myrrh and aloes, with all the chief spices: A fountain of
gardens, a well of living waters, and streams from Lebanon. Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow
upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant
fruits.
From the GARDEN OF THE LORD, the bride of Christ, is going to come a PERFECT, SINLESS CREATION,
a creation in the IMAGE and LIKENESS of the INVISIBLE GOD.

Genesis 2:14. And the fourth river is Euphrates.


Euphrates has a numerical value of 288. This is 144 x 2.
Euphrates means FRUITFULNESS. This indicates the purpose of the 144,000. They have the honour of
bringing forth the resultant FRUIT, the OFFSPRING of the MARRIAGE OF THE LORD JESUS AND THE
BRIDE OF CHRIST.
Genesis 24:22. And it came to pass, as the camels had done drinking, that the man took a golden earring of half
a shekel weight, and two bracelets for her hands of ten shekels weight of gold;
The bracelets, given by the unnamed servant, a picture of the HOLY SPIRIT, were received and worn by
Rebecca, the BRIDE OF ISAAC, a type of JESUS and His CHURCH.
The word BRACLET is also translated COVERING. A vessel that did not have a covering was UNCLEAN.
Numbers 19:15. And every open vessel, which hath no covering bound upon it, is unclean.
This reveals that the Holy Spirit will OVERSHADOW, provide a COVERING to the 144,000, a part of the
END TIME BRIDE OF CHRIST.

1 Samuel 22:1. David therefore departed thence, and escaped to the cave Adullam: and when his brethren and
all his father‟s house heard it, they went down thither to him.
Adullum was the cave that David fled to. It was here that he welded together a MIGHTY FIGHTING FORCE,
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 113

among them the INVINCIBLE MIGHTY MEN,.


They came forth from Adullam CONQUERING AND TO CONQUER.
Micah 1:15. Yet will I bring an heir unto thee, O inhabitant of Mareshah: he shall come unto Adullam the glory
of Israel.
It is noted that in this type, the 144,000 will indeed be an OVERCOMING body.
When the GLORY OF GOD descends on them, they will give birth to a SEED, that will PRECIPITATE one of
the greatest and FIERCEST BATTLES in all the history of the universe.
Revelation 12:7. And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the
dragon fought and his angels,

Esther 2:7. And he brought up Hadassah, that is, Esther, his uncle‟s daughter: for she had neither father nor
mother, and the maid was fair and beautiful; whom Mordecai, when her father and mother were dead, took for
his own daughter.
The phrase, HADASSAH, THAT IS ESTHER, has a numerical value of 144 x 8.
The numeral 8 signifies resurrection life.
Esther was associated with DEATH!
Esther 4:16. Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor
drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which
is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.
Esther brought DELIVERANCE to Israel by placing herself in the PLACE OF DEATH. As the bride of Christ
experiences death to herself, her ambitions are desires, she will experience the mighty quickening power of the
Holy Spirit, and bring forth a deliverer for the believers of the Lord Jesus.
Esther in the Hebrew means VENUS. Venus is the BRIGHT MORNING STAR.

EPHRAIM is also omitted.

Hosea 4:17. Ephraim is joined to idols: let him alone.


HIS NAME AND HIS FATHER‟S NAME IS WRITTEN IN THEIR FOREHEADS. They FOLLOW THE
LAMB whithersoever he goeth. They are JOINED to him. This shows the most intimate association.

There were 144,000 white, limestone blocks that formed the outer structure of the GREAT PYRAMID OF
GIZEH. Their purpose was to REFLECT LIGHT and crown the edifice with GREAT GLORY. This they did.
These become a symbol of the 144,000 associated with the church of the END TIME. Their purpose will be to
RADIATE THE GLORY OF THE LORD.

They are VIRGINS.

NO MAN CAN LEARN THE SONG.


Psalm 46. A Song upon Alamoth, Maidens, Virgins]. God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in
trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the
midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling
thereof. Selah. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the
tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that
right early. The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. The LORD of
hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations
he hath made in the earth. He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth
the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among
the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

They are WITHOUT FAULT, perfect.

They are NOT DEFILED WITH WOMEN.

There is NO GUILE in their mouths.

They were REDEEMED FROM AMONG MEN. To redeem means to buy back.

They are the FIRSTFRUITS to God and the Lamb.


The REDEMPTION OF THE FIRSTBORN is seen in Numbers 3:44-51. And the LORD spake unto Moses,
saying, Take the Levites instead of all the firstborn among the children of Israel, and the cattle of the Levites
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 114

instead of their cattle; and the Levites shall be mine: I am the LORD. And for those that are to be redeemed of
the two hundred and threescore and thirteen of the firstborn of the children of Israel, which are more than the
Levites; Thou shalt even take five shekels apiece by the poll, after the shekel of the sanctuary shalt thou take
them: (the shekel is twenty gerahs:) And thou shalt give the money, wherewith the odd number of them is to be
redeemed, unto Aaron and to his sons. And Moses took the redemption money of them that were over and
above them that were redeemed by the Levites: Of the firstborn of the children of Israel took he the money; a
thousand three hundred and threescore and five shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary: And Moses gave the
money of them that were redeemed unto Aaron and to his sons, according to the word of the LORD, as the
LORD commanded Moses.

Revelation 21:9,15-18. And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the
seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb‟s wife. And he
that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. And the
city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve
thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. And he measured the wall thereof,
an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. And the building
of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
The area of the city is 12,000 furlongs x 12,000 furlongs = 144,000 x 1,000. The wall, fashioned of jasper, is
144 cubits in height.
Revelation 4:3. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow
round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.

The NEW JERUSALEM is impregnated with the very presence of God.


Revelation 22:1-2. 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. 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.
It is the RIVER OF GOD that unites the TREE OF LIFE to the THRONE OF GOD AND THE LAMB. Twelve
manner of fruits each month, totals 144 for a twelve month period. The leaves are for the healing of the nations.
1 Corinthians 11 is the 144th chapter of the New Testament. Its subjects are the relationship of MAN AND
WOMAN and the BODY and BLOOD of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The English word, WOMB, in the Greek language is “gaster”. This is used EIGHT times in the New Testament.
Its numerical value is 612. 612 x 8 = 4696 = 144 x 34.

The following scriptures contain this Greek word.


Matthew 1:18. Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to
Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
Matthew 24:19. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
Mark 13:17. But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
Luke 21:23. But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be
great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people.
Revelation 12:2. And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
The word means literally, HAVING IN THE WOMB.

By integrating the teaching of the foregoing into one harmonious whole, the PURPOSE of the 144,000 is readily
seen.
The 144,000 are to bring forth a new creation to populate the new heaven and new earth. This will be
accomplished through suffering. The progeny will be total light; It will be perfected and mature. They are
redeemed from among men. They are singers and have musical ability. They are joined to the Lion of God on
mount Sion. Their offspring is a perfect, mature, sinless man, born in the image of God. They are fruitful.
They are covered, overshadowed by the power of the Holy Spirit. They are associated with warfare, and will be
involved in one of the mightiest battles in the history of the universe. As a part of the bride of Christ, they will
be in the place of death. They, together with the bride of Christ are a habitation for the eternal God. They have
a healing aspect to their ministry. They are that part of the bride of Christ that will produce the manchild, the
arrival in heaven of which, causes war, and the FINAL OVERTHROW and EXPULSION of the devil from
heaven.

As the NAME REVEAL THE NATURE, so the names of the twelve tribes mentioned here further unveil the
particular ministry of the 144,000.
JUDAH means celebrated, that is PRAISE. To worship with EXTENDED HANDS.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 115

REUBEN, BEHOLD A SON. This is the declaration of those sealed from the twelve tribes. It is an
exclamation of praise.
Gad means, to crowd upon, that is ATTACK. To invade, to overcome. To assemble into troops. This is a
MILITARY term. It is here associated with WARFARE, with the GREATEST BATTLE THAT IS TO EVER
CONFRONT THE CHURCH.
ASHER. Happy, BLESSED.
NEPHTHALIM, my wrestling, STRUGGLE. The ministry of the 144,000 is revealed here as one of struggle.
Struggle is the constant factor present in the birth of anything of value or beauty. That which costs nothing is
not highly valued. It is like the struggle of the emergence of a butterfly from a cocoon. Without the element of
struggle, the wings would be deformed, and the butterfly would never attain it designed potential.
MANASSES. CAUSING TO FORGET. John 16:21. A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her
hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a
man is born into the world.
The 144,000 will undergo a ministry of suffering. However, when the major aspect of their ministry is
completed, their sorrow will be turned into joy. It will be remembered no more. It will be forgotten. It will be
erased from their persons for the joy that a man child is born into the world!
SIMEON means HEARING, to hear intelligently. This speaks of FAITH for faith comes by hearing the word of
God. Not a blind, unfounded faith, but an intelligent faith, based on the Word of God.
It is through faith that the ministry of the 144,000 is accomplished. Indeed, every step along the Christian path
is a step of faith.
LEVI means JOINED, attached. Revelation 14:4. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he
goeth. They follow him for they are joined to him. Joined forever. Joined through MARRIAGE.
ISSACHAR. He will bring a REWARD. The resultant fruit of the ministry of the 144,000 is in the production
of a seed, the manchild. The arrival of this company, the progeny of the union of Christ and his church, in the
heavens precipitates war. This is the greatest war in the history of the Christian church! The outcome of this
heavenly engagement is the CASTING DOWN OF SATAN, and his manifestation of the ANTICHRIST in the
earth. The cry is made in the heavens, REJOICE, ye heavens and ye that dwell in them. WOE to the inhabiters
of the EARTH for the devil is come down having GREAT WRATH. In this way the seed of the woman indeed
brings a reward. That reward is that they have been instrumental in CLEANSING THE HEAVENS from the
devil. That will be joy enough. Sorrow has indeed endured for the night, by joy cometh in the morning.
ZEBULON. Inhabitation, to reside, to DWELL. Here the ministry of the 144,000 shows that they are the
vehicle for the birth of the firstfruits of a new creation that is to POPULATE the new heavens and the new earth.
This is similar to Noah‟s Ark. That vehicle was a vessel that brought forth a NEW CREATION to populate the
new earth.
JOSEPH means let him ADD. To add, to augment. It is through the 144,000 that the addition to the family of
God is achieved
BENJAMIN. SON OF THE RIGHT HAND. The 144,000 bring forth a creation that will be the SON OF
AUTHORITY, of power. A creation that will be seated at the RIGHT HAND OF GOD.
Matthew 20:23. To sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for
whom it is prepared of my Father.

In the amalgamation of these truths there emerges the following:- Through a blessed people by faith, and praise,
the declaration is made, BEHOLD A SON! The birth has come through struggle and warfare. The addition is
made by those that are joined to the Lamb. Their ministry of suffering is eclipsed by the joy that a manchild has
been born into the world. Their reward is great. A creation has been born, a creation of authority and power,
the son of the right hand, the creation that are the firstfruits of the new heaven and the new earth.

There will be a time of terror on the earth, like of which has never been seen. The horrors of the last war, and
indeed all the previous wars will fade into extinction compared with the Satanic onslaught that is ahead of the
Christian church.

The THIRD PHASE of the SIXTH SEAL consists of the multitudinous gathering of WHITE ROBED, PALM-
WAVING MARTYRS. The scene that follows is one of VICTORY, not defeat. Of LIFE, not of death. Of the
OVERCOMERS, not the overcome! These came out of GREAT TRIBULATION
Mark 13:19. For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God
created unto this time, neither shall be.
Matthew 24:21. For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this
time, no, nor ever shall be.

WHITE ROBES. The martyrs have WASHED THEIR ROBES in the blood of the Lamb. Each person must
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 116

execute this action himself. Each human being must experience the CLEANSING POWER of the blood of
Christ for himself.
Isaiah 64:6. But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade
as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
Zechariah 3:1-5. And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan
standing at his right hand to resist him. And the LORD said unto Satan, The LORD rebuke thee, O Satan; even
the LORD that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire? Now Joshua was
clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel. And he answered and spake unto those that stood
before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine
iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment. And I said, Let them set a fair mitre
upon his head. So they set a fair mitre upon his head, and clothed him with garments. And the angel of the
LORD stood by.
Exodus 19:10,14. And the LORD said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to
morrow, and let them wash their clothes, And Moses went down from the mount unto the people, and sanctified
the people; and they washed their clothes.
Psalm 51:1-5. Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of
thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my
sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. Against thee, thee only, have I sinned,
and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou
judgest. Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
Isaiah 1:18. Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be
as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
1 Corinthians 6:11. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in
the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
1 John 1:7. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood
of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
Romans 3:25. Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his
righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
Romans 5:9. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
Ephesians 1:7. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches
of his grace;
1 Peter 1:19. But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
Hebrews 9:14. How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself
without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

THEY SHALL NEITHER HUNGER NOR THIRST ANYMORE. Matthew 5:6. Blessed are they which do
hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
John 4:14. But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall
give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
John 6:35. And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he
that believeth on me shall never thirst.
John 7:37. In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him
come unto me, and drink.
Isaiah 49:10. They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that hath mercy
on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them.

THE LAMB IS THEIR SHEPHERD. Psalm 23:1. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
Psalm 80:1. Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest between the
cherubims, shine forth.
Isaiah 40:11. He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in
his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.

shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd.

also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.

and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
1 Peter 2:25. For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your
souls.
Hebrews 13:20. Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 117

the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,


Psalm 23:2. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
Psalm 36:9. For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.

PEOPLE AND TONGUES. Genesis 10:5,20,31. By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands;
every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations. These are the sons of Ham, after their families,
after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations. These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after
their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.
Daniel 3:4-5. Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages, That at
what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye
fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up.
Daniel 4:1. Nebuchadnezzar the king, unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace
be multiplied unto you.
Daniel 6:25. Then king Darius wrote unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace
be multiplied unto you.

PALM BRANCHES, are a symbol of VICTORY. They also point to the FEAST OF TABERNACLES, an
APPOINTMENT to be kept by the church BEFORE the second coming of the Lord Jesus.
Leviticus 23:39-43. Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the
land, ye shall keep a feast unto the LORD seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day
shall be a sabbath. And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees,
and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven
days. And ye shall keep it a feast unto the LORD seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your
generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month. Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are
Israelites born shall dwell in booths: That your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to dwell
in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
John 12:12-13. On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was
coming to Jerusalem, Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is
the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.
Nehemiah 8:16-17. So the people went forth, and brought them, and made themselves booths, every one upon
the roof of his house, and in their courts, and in the courts of the house of God, and in the street of the water
gate, and in the street of the gate of Ephraim. And all the congregation of them that were come again out of the
captivity made booths, and sat under the booths: for since the days of Jeshua the son of Nun unto that day had
not the children of Israel done so. And there was very great gladness.
Ezra 3:11-12. And they sang together by course in praising and giving thanks unto the LORD; because he is
good, for his mercy endureth for ever toward Israel. And all the people shouted with a great shout, when they
praised the LORD, because the foundation of the house of the LORD was laid. But many of the priests and
Levites and chief of the fathers, who were ancient men, that had seen the first house, when the foundation of this
house was laid before their eyes, wept with a loud voice; and many shouted aloud for joy:
2 Chronicles 20:19. And the Levites, of the children of the Kohathites, and of the children of the Korhites,
stood up to praise the LORD God of Israel with a loud voice on high.
Luke 19:37-38. And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole
multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they
had seen; Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the
highest.
Matthew 21:8-9. And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from
the trees, and strawed them in the way. And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying,
Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.

THE TEMPLE. Isaiah 4:5-6. And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon
her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall
be a defence. And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of
refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.
The word DEFENCE may be alternately rendered, COVERING. In this instance it would have direct reference
to a MARRIAGE CANOPY. It is at this time the MARRIAGE OF THE LAMB is come.

BLESSING. Isaiah 49:8-11. Thus saith the LORD, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of
salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the
earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages; That thou mayest say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are
in darkness, Shew yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places. They
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 118

shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that hath mercy on them shall lead
them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them. And I will make all my mountains a way, and my
highways shall be exalted.
Isaiah 25:8. He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces;
and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.

and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying,
neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
Revelation 22:1. 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.

WRATH. Romans 2:5. But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the
day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;
Revelation 20:11-15. And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the
heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before
God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were
judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the
dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every
man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And
whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Every one of the seven seals is opened BEFORE the rise to power of the ANTICHRIST, and the BEGINNING
of the great tribulation period.

THE SEVENTH SEAL. Revelation 8:1. And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven
about the space of half an hour.

A most STRIKING CONTRAST occurs here. There are no thundering commands, no horseman, no cries, no
falling heavens, no voluminous praise from the saints of God, NOTHING!
Even heaven itself is hushed at the opening of this seal. All is still. At the conclusion of this half an hour‟s
silence, seven angels with seven trumpets come into view. The seventh seal CONTAINS the SEVEN
TRUMPETS. Also the SEVEN VIALS. This is the time of THE MARRIAGE OF THE LAMB TO THE
BRIDE OF CHRIST! Here the MYSTERY OF GOD is consummated. The END TIME MINISTRY of the
church commences. The bride of Christ has attained MATURITY [perfection].
Under the SEVENTH SEAL, the MANCHILD COMPANY is BORN and TRANSLATED TO HEAVEN.
There is WAR in heaven. SATAN IS CAST DOWN INTO THE EARTH. THE MAN OF SIN IS
REVEALED.

The FIRST and SEVENTH seal appertain totally to the church.

The questions are continually asked, “What is God saying?” “What is God doing?” The statement is continually
make that God is moving by His Spirit, The river of God is flowing. The questions that need to be asked is
WHY is God saying what He is saying? WHY is God doing what He is doing? WHY is God moving by His
Spirit, in what AREAS and FOR WHAT PURPOSE, and WHERE is the river of God flowing to? WHAT is
God‟s ULTIMATE purpose? Does He have an END in mind? Is there COMPLETION in His sight? God is
moving, working and flowing in order to produce the glorious woman of Revelation 12:1.
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and
upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
He is producing a perfect church, without spot or wrinkle, the mature man, the Sons of God, the Bride of Christ.
He will not cease until his final purpose has been accomplished!

As the RIVER OF GOD that watered the Garden of the Lord, [the garden of Eden], parted into FOUR HEADS,
so also, is the moving of the Holy Spirit clearly visible on four fronts today.
The are the Catholic movement, the Protestant movement, the Pentecostal movement, and the Jesus movement.
They are four sections of the move of the Holy Spirit.
The bride of Christ is PERFECTED through teaching. Ezra 3, Nehemiah 8, John 7.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 119

Among the many truths that were restored to the church in 1948 were the following.

THE COMING TOGETHER OF THE BODY OF CHRIST. 1 Corinthians 12:12-27.


For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one
body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles,
whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. For the body is not one member,
but many. If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? If the
whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? But
now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. And if they were all one
member, where were the body? But now are they many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say
unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. Nay, much more
those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: And those members of the body,
which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts
have more abundant comeliness. For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together,
having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: That there should be no schism in the body; but
that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer, all the members
suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. Now ye are the body of Christ, and
members in particular.

THE FIVE ASCENSION GIFT MINISTRIES. Ephesians 4:11-16. And he gave some, apostles; and some,
prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of
the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the
knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That
we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the
sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may
grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together
and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every
part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

THE LAYING ON OF HANDS. Hebrews 6:1-2. Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let
us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward
God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal
judgment.

The MINISTRY OF DELIVERANCE, accompanied by the OPENING OF THE BOOK. Luke 4:16-21. And
he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the
sabbath day, and stood up for to read. And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And
when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to
preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To
preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat
down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he began to say unto
them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

APOSTLES AND PROPHETS. Ephesians 2:20-22. And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and
prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together
groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through
the Spirit.
Isaiah 9:6. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of
Peace.
Psalm 11:3. If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
Ezra 3:6, 10-13. From the first day of the seventh month began they to offer burnt offerings unto the LORD.
But the foundation of the temple of the LORD was not yet laid.
And when the builders laid the foundation of the temple of the LORD, they set the priests in their apparel with
trumpets, and the Levites the sons of Asaph with cymbals, to praise the LORD, after the ordinance of David
king of Israel. And they sang together by course in praising and giving thanks unto the LORD; because he is
good, for his mercy endureth for ever toward Israel. And all the people shouted with a great shout, when they
praised the LORD, because the foundation of the house of the LORD was laid. But many of the priests and
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 120

Levites and chief of the fathers, who were ancient men, that had seen the first house, when the foundation of this
house was laid before their eyes, wept with a loud voice; and many shouted aloud for joy: So that the people
could not discern the noise of the shout of joy from the noise of the weeping of the people: for the people
shouted with a loud shout, and the noise was heard afar off.
1 Corinthians 3:10-13. According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have
laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For
other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this
foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man‟s work shall be made manifest: for the
day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man‟s work of what sort it is.
Hebrews 6:1-2. Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not
laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of
baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
Luke 6:47-49. Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he
is like: He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the
flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against
which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
The MOST IMPORTANT part of any building is its FOUNDATION. The rearing of the superstructure is
wholly dependent upon the size and strength of the foundation.
The frame must be securely tied into the foundation which in turn must rest on a solid base.
Jesus taught that when a Christian hears the word of the Lord and does not assimilate that teaching into his life,
he is like a man that builds a house WITHOUT a foundation. No builder would ever dream of doing such a
thing. Alas, there are many believers however, that consider this major step irrelevant to their experience.
The Bible states that when the flood arose, one house STOOD FIRM. This was the house with the foundation.
The other, without a foundation, fell immediately. The flood that validated the established building, destroyed
the other! It was the same flood.
Isaiah 59:19. So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun.
When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.
It is important to further understand that a great flood is on its way. The Lord Jesus did not say if the flood
comes – He said when. It is coming! Every believer needs to stand himself in good stead for that day.
Revelation 12:15. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause
her to be carried away of the flood.
The FIRST day of the SEVENTH month speaks of the BEGINNING OF THE END OF TIME; it speaks of
1948. In the restoration temple under Ezra, when that time came, the foundation of the temple was not laid. So
also is it in these days. The FOUNDATION of the temple of the Lord is the APOSTLE AND PROPHET. To
this time there has NOT been a great manifestation of these ministries. The remaining three ascension gift
ministries, evangelist, pastor, and teacher are readily seen. It will occur in these last days therefore, that there
will be an establishing of these FOUNDATIONAL MINISTRIES in the body of Christ. The lack of their
presence has led to all types of spurious practices within the church. This situation is going to change radically.
With the advent of these foundational ministries, the church of the Lord Jesus will be structured as He has
always intended. Their restoration will be attended with the accompanying restoration truths of ETERNAL
JUDGMENT, RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD, and PERFECTION.
A mantle of AUTHORITY will rest upon them. Their ministries of judgment will CLEANSE THE CHURCH,
as the Lord Jesus cleansed the temple in his earthly ministry, the days of Ananias and Sapphira will be here
again.
Acts 5:1-11. But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, And kept back part
of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles‟ feet. But Peter
said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the
land? Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast
thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God. And Ananias hearing these
words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things. And the young
men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him. And it was about the space of three hours after,
when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in. And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the
land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much. Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed
together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door,
and shall carry thee out. Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young
men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband. And great fear came upon
all the church, and upon as many as heard these things.

A JUDGED CHURCH will result in a PERFECT church.


End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 121

1 Peter 4:17. For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what
shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
John 2:13-21. And the Jews‟ passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem, And found in the temple
those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: And when he had made a scourge
of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers‟
money, and overthrew the tables; And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my
Father‟s house an house of merchandise. And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine
house hath eaten me up. Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing
that thou doest these things? Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will
raise it up. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three
days? But he spake of the temple of his body.
The foundation of the church is a trilogy of the APOSTLE, the PROPHET, and the LORD JESUS CHRIST.

THE CHURCH OF LAODICEA. Revelation 3:14-22. And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans
write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know
thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm,
and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with
goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind,
and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that
thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve,
that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand
at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with
him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame,
and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the
churches.
The Laodicean church age is the MOST DECEPTIVE in church history. This age is now upon us. The great
tendency is for the believer to lapse into a state of INDIFFERENCE and LETHARGY. This is SPIRITUAL
SUICIDE. This condition must be OVERCOME! As tragic as blindness is, spiritual blindness is even greater.
Not to be aware of this tremendous handicap is indeed pathetic.
In this day of materialism, and the affluent society, with even churches boasting gigantic wealth, the Lord Jesus
brings this startling uncovering, shocking the church into the soul-shaking awareness of its wretched state.
The COUNSEL is to BUY gold, white raiment, and eyesalve. The things of God always come with a price tag
attached. They are not free. If the end time Christian is to be an overcomer of PROCRASTINATION, he must
purchase from the Lord Jesus the above commodities.
Proverbs 23:23. Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
Isaiah 55:1. Ho, every one that thirsteth, 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.
The purchase price is shown not to be money, but a BURNING DESIRE to overcome the prevailing condition
within the church.
Matthew 25:9. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather
to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. This principle is also illustrated in the life of the Lord Jesus, through
two parables He used in His teachings.
Matthew 13:44-46. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man
hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. Again, the
kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of
great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
Let not any LUKEWARM Christian [a believer PARTLY sold out to God, and PARTLY with a foot in the
world] think that he will overcome the quagmire of DESPONDENCY. He must, as the example given by his
Lord, SELL OUT EVERYTHING, in order that he might indeed have the PURCHASING POWER to
overcome.
It is to be observed that in this church, the adherents put Jesus Christ outside. It was his own church. He is seen
knocking, seeking to gain re-entry. To allow Him in is salvation indeed.
The greatest promise to any overcomer in any church is to SIT WITH THE LORD JESUS CHRIST ON HIS
THRONE. There is no greater!

THE CLEANSING OF THE SANCTUARY. Daniel 8:13-14. Then I heard one saint speaking, and another
saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and
the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? And he said
unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.
In this instance a day is PROPHETIC of a year. The authority for this is found in Numbers 14:34. After the
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 122

number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your
iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise.
The current sanctuary of God is the CHURCH. The question asked is how long it shall be before the church is
cleansed, or perfected? The answer is clear. Two thousand three hundred years!
Bible scholars agree that the notable horn of the he goat is Alexander the Great. He was born in 356 BC, and
died in 323 BC at the age of 33. He rose to power after the assassination of his Father, Phillip. The power of
Medio-Persia was broken in the battle of the Granicus in 334 BC. Darius was killed in 330 BC. By dating the
2,300 years from these dates specified, the cleansing of the sanctuary was scheduled to occur sometime between
1948 to 1981. This is allowing for the adjustment of four years in the calendar prepared by Dionysus. Both
these dates are extremely interesting. 1948 saw the restoration of PRAISE and WORSHIP to the church. This
generation is scheduled to see the cleansing of the sanctuary, the perfection of the church. Praise will
CLEANSE and PURIFY the temple of the Lord.
Proverbs 27:21. As the fining pot for silver, and the furnace for gold; so is a man to his praise.
The PURIFYING and MAKING WHITE is shown to take place in the time of the OPENING OF THE
SEALED BOOK.
Daniel 12:9-10 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked
shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
Daniel 11:35. And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white,
even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.
Special note should be taken that with many time prophecies the exact commencement and concluding dates
have been deliberately confused by the Lord. The Christian will NOT KNOW the specifics, the day or the hour,
yet he is EXPECTED to know the generalities, the TIMES AND SEASONS.
The point should be taken that this is the generation that has begun to see the cleansing of the church. It is this
generation also that will see the cleansing completed. It will see the perfection of the church. The cleansing
will culminate in the MATURE BRIDE OF CHRIST.

TWELVE LAST DAY APOSTLES. As early church fell under the leadership of twelve apostles, so the church
of the end time will be led and directed by twelve men. They will constitute the GOVERNMENTAL
AUTHORITY in restored power. Their purpose will be to lead and guide the church into maturity and
perfection, in preparation and readiness for her marriage to the Lord Jesus Christ. They are seen in the glorious
church of Revelation 12:1. And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and
the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
The twelve stars are symbols of the twelve last day apostles.

THE ANTICHRIST. This person is not revealed to the world until the last three and a half years of time. It is a
sobering thought however, to realise that the body the devil is going to use for his final diabolical purpose is
ALIVE on the earth NOW!

THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS FULFILLED. Leviticus 23:23-25. And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a
sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye
shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
The first day of the seventh months speaks of the beginning of the end time. It was to be marked by an
emphasis on the teaching ministry, that is, the opening of the book. This occurred in 1948. It was also to be
accompanied by the evangelistic ministry. This began in the same year.

THE FIRST AND SECOND BEASTS. Daniel 7:4-5. The first was like a lion, and had eagle‟s wings: I beheld
till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man,
and a man‟s heart was given to it. And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on
one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour
much flesh.
These creatures are fully manifested today.
The first beast was originally one, that became two. The lion is the symbol of Britain.
The separation of the eagles wings signify the independence of the United States of America. America was
originally colonised by Britain. This beast is shown to have a MAN‟S HEART. Man was created to have
fellowship with God. It has been the nations of BRITAIN and AMERICA that have been the most influential in
spreading the gospel of Christ. In these last days, it has been the Bible and the God who wrote the Bible that
have made these nations great.
The second beast, a bear, symbolises RUSSIA. This is not the little cuddly Mishka of the recent Olympic
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 123

games, but rather a FEROCIOUS ADULT GRIZZLY BEAR, bent on WORLD CONQUEST. The command
was given that it should DEVOUR MUCH FLESH.
This animal has done just that. From humble beginnings in 1917, Godless communism has spread its clutching
paws in every direction on the earth. At the present time THREE FIFTHS of the world is under its domination.
Truly, this beast has done what was commanded of her, namely, that it should devour much flesh.

THE TABERNACLE OF DAVID. This structure was in effect for a limited, short period of time between
Moses‟ Tabernacle and Solomon‟s Temple. It speaks of the restoration of PRAISE and WORSHIP, and
signified the current movement of the Holy Spirit in the earth today.
Amos 9:11-15. In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches
thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old: That they may possess the remnant
of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this. Behold, the days
come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth
seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt. And I will bring again the captivity
of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards,
and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. And I will plant them upon
their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy
God.
Acts 15:16. After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will
build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up:
It is to be observed that as a result of the RESTORATION of David‟s tabernacle, there would come a
SUPERNATURAL GROWTH and DEVELOPMENT TO MATURITY. So fast would this happen that the
Bible says the PLOWMAN WILL OVERTAKE THE REAPER. This means before the reaper can harvest the
ripened grapes, the plowman is preparing the soil for the following years harvest! Before the sower can get the
seed into the ground, the treader of grapes will have overtaken him.
That is very fast growth. It is faster than instantaneous.
It will take the tabernacle of David to do this.
The move of the Holy Spirit today is going to result in the antitypical teaching of the permanency of Solomon‟s
temple, the body of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Christian therefore, can expect to see the ESTABLISHING OF
THE HOUSE OF THE LORD in these days, resulting in the visitation of the glory of God to the Church.
A gigantic HARVEST OF SOULS will be seen in this generation. The harvest will not be lost as in previous
occasions, but will experience rapid growth towards maturity.
The first day of the seventh month speaks of the beginning of the end time. It was to be marked by an emphasis
on the teaching ministry, that is, the opening of the book. This occurred in 1948. It was also to be
accompanied by the evangelistic ministry. This began in the same year.

SECTION 7

THE SEVEN TRUMPETS

THE BRIDE. This time extends over a period of twelve months and commences with the PERFECTION OF
THE CHURCH to the commencement of the GREAT TRIBULATION PERIOD. It has to do with the final
ministry of the church, the END TIME MINISTRY of the bride of Christ,

The events are detailed on the PINK section of the End-Time chart.

THE DAY OF ATONEMENT. The fulfillment of this, the greatest day of the year in the Old Testament, and
also to modern Israel, will see the BRIDE OF CHRIST raised to a state of COEQUALITY with the Lord Jesus.
Every sin, both known and unknown, will be TOTALLY REMOVED from this body. She will PERFECT,
MATURE, WITHOUT WRINKLE, SPOT, BLEMISH OR ANY SUCH THING! She will be totally united to
the Lord Jesus. This is the time of the MARRIAGE of Christ to the Church!

THE BRIDE OF CHRIST MANIFESTED. Revelation 12:1. And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a
woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
Isaiah 60:1-5. Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold,
the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his
glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.
Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall
come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side. Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine
heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the
Gentiles shall come unto thee.
Genesis 1:14. And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night;
and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

THE SANCTUARY CLEANSED. Daniel 8:13-14. Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said
unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the
transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? And he said unto
me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.
The cleansing of the sanctuary at this point is TOTALLY COMPLETED. It coincides with the DAY OF
ATONEMENT to the church. The church will be FULLY CLEANSED, it will stand complete, wanting
nothing.

THE MANIFESTATION OF THE SONS OF GOD. Romans 8:19-23. For the earnest expectation of the
creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not
willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be
delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the
whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which
have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the
redemption of our body.

THE FULFILLMENT OF TOMMY HICKS‟ VISION (See Appendix 5.)

God spoke to GERALD DERSTINE, a Spirit-filled Mennonite minister, and told him that what the church is
experiencing today in the move of the Holy Spirit was like two drops of water in a ten gallon bucket. He further
stated that what the church was going to see in these last days was the WHOLE BUCKET FULL! What are two
drops of water compared to ten gallons? There is no comparison. Here is another indication of the mighty
manifestation that both the church and the world are yet to see before the return of the Son of God.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 125

While enquiring of the move of the Holy Spirit in the great tent crusades in America in the 1950‟s, JACK COE
was told by the Lord that the then current visitation was likened to that being poured out of the little dipper.
That was yet to come explained the Lord was to be poured out of the BIG DIPPER.
The fulfillment of JOEL‟S prophecy in the early church was God pouring out OF His Spirit. In the last days the
whole Spirit of God is to be poured on the earth.
There are many other notable accounts of this instruction of the Lord. Those here cited will suffice.

THE PERFECT MAN. Ephesians 4:13. Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the
Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

THE CHURCH FILLED WILL ALL THE FULLNESS OF GOD. Ephesians 3:19. And to know the love of
Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

THE ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTIETH YEAR OF JUBILEE COMMENCES.


Isaiah 61:1-2. The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good
tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the
opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of
vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
The ACCEPTABLE YEAR of the Lord is the year of JUBILEE. The Jubilee speaks of release, freedom,
reuniting with families: In connection with the number one hundred and twenty, which speaks of the END OF
ALL FLESH, is prophetic of the mighty VISITATION of the Spirit of God that is yet to transpire upon the earth
before the great tribulation period and the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

THE ANTITYPICAL FULFILLMENT OF THE DEDICATION OF SOLOMON‟S TEMPLE. 2 Chronicles


5:2-3, 12-14. Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel, and all the heads of the tribes, the chief of the
fathers of the children of Israel, unto Jerusalem, to bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD out of the city
of David, which is Zion. Wherefore all the men of Israel assembled themselves unto the king in the feast which
was in the seventh month. Also the Levites which were the singers, all of them of Asaph, of Heman, of
Jeduthun, with their sons and their brethren, being arrayed in white linen, having cymbals and psalteries and
harps, stood at the east end of the altar, and with them an hundred and twenty priests sounding with trumpets:)
It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and
thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of
musick, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was
filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD; So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the
cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of God.
Luke 24:53. And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.
Acts 2:1-4. And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And
suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they
were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And
they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them
utterance.
Haggai 2:9. The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in
this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.

THE SECRET COMING OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST TO THE BRIDE.


Hebrews 9:28. So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he
appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
Malachi 3:1-3. Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom
ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he
shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he
appeareth? for he is like a refiner‟s fire, and like fullers‟ soap: And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver:
and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an
offering in righteousness.
Matthew 25:1-13. Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and
went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish
took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the
bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the
bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the
foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not
so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 126

they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door
was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said,
Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the
Son of man cometh.
1 Corinthians 13:10. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
Hosea 6:3. Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning;
and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
Ezekiel 47:9-12. And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, 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 every thing shall live whither the river cometh. And it shall come to pass, that the
fishers shall stand upon it from Engedi even unto Eneglaim; they shall be a place to spread forth nets; their fish
shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many. But the miry places thereof and
the marishes thereof shall not be healed; they shall be given to salt. And by the river upon the bank thereof, on
this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be
consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the
sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.
James 5:7. Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the
precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.
John 7:2,8,10,14,37-39. Now the Jews‟ feast of tabernacles was at hand. Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up
yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come. But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up
unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret. Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the
temple, and taught. In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let
him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow
rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the
Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
Luke 12:36. And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding;
that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.
Matthew 16:18. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the
gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Revelation 19:7-8. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come,
and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and
white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

THE MARRIAGE OF CHRIST AND THE CHURCH. Ephesians 5:25-32. Husbands, love your wives, even
as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing
of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any
such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own
bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and
cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For
this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one
flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
The bride of Christ at this point in time experiences IMMORTALITY.

THE OPENING OF THE SEVENTH SEAL occurs here. Revelation 8:1. And when he had opened the seventh
seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.

THE MYSTERY OF THE MANCHILD BEGINS. Revelation 12:1-4. And there appeared a great wonder in
heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another
wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his
heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon
stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

JESUS‟ PRAYER FOR UNITY ANSWERED. John 17:21-23. That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in
me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the
glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in
me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved
them, as thou hast loved me.

THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES FULFILLED. The first section, the INGATHERING. It is at this time the
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 127

GREATEST HARVEST OF SOULS in the entire history of the Christian church will be gathered.

THE OVERCOMERS EATING THE TREE OF LIFE. Revelation 2:7. He that hath an ear, let him hear what
the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the
midst of the paradise of God.
Revelation 2:11. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh
shall not be hurt of the second death.
Revelation 2:17. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that
overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name
written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
Revelation 2:26-29. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over
the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers:
even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star. He that hath an ear, let him hear what
the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Revelation 3:5-6. He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his
name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. He that hath
an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Revelation 3:12-13. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more
out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new
Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that
hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Revelation 3:21-22. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame,
and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the
churches.
Each church had conditions that were to be OVERCOME. The OVERCOMERS were a CHURCH WITHIN A
CHURCH, a SELECT company.
In order for the END TIME CHRISTIAN to be an overcomer, there will be situations that he will have to
overcome. He must overcome each obstacle placed in his path in order to qualify as an overcomer. The
overcomers therefore, constitute the BRIDE OF CHRIST.

THE GREAT HARVEST OF THE EARTH IS REAPED. James 5:7. Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the
coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience
for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.
Revelation 14:14-16. And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of
man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the
temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come
for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth;
and the earth was reaped.

THE SEVEN TRUMPETS

THE FIRST TRUMPET. HAIL, FIRE AND BLOOD. Revelation 8:7. The first angel sounded, and there
followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was
burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
Micah 7:15-17. According to the days of thy coming out of the land of Egypt will I shew unto him marvellous
things. The nations shall see and be confounded at all their might: they shall lay their hand upon their mouth,
their ears shall be deaf. They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their holes like worms of
the earth: they shall be afraid of the LORD our God, and shall fear because of thee.
Exodus 9:22-33. And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven, that there may be
hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the land of
Egypt. And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran
along upon the ground; and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt. So there was hail, and fire mingled
with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation. And
the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote
every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field. Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of
Israel were, was there no hail. And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have
sinned this time: the LORD is righteous, and I and my people are wicked. Intreat the LORD (for it is enough)
that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer. And Moses
said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the LORD; and the
thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know how that the earth is the
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 128

LORD‟S. But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear the LORD God. And the flax and
the barley was smitten: for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was bolled. But the wheat and the rie were not
smitten: for they were not grown up. And Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh, and spread abroad his
hands unto the LORD: and the thunders and hail ceased, and the rain was not poured upon the earth.
As the judgments on Egypt were literal, so are they here.
Joel 2:30. And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
Acts 2:19. And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour
of smoke:
Psalm 18:13. The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of
fire.
Blood red rain and blood red snow have fallen on the earth in times past.
At Baffin‟s Bay in 1819, over an area of eight miles, the mountains were covered with snow that was blood red
in colour, several feet deep. This was again seen on Mt. St. Bernard in 1778. It has also occurred in Norway
and other places. Even Cicero wrote of it.

ONE THIRD of vegetation will be destroyed.


This plague will not be localised in any specific geographical location – it will be WORLD WIDE.
Exodus 7:20-21. And Moses and Aaron did so, as the LORD commanded; and he lifted up the rod, and smote
the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that
were in the river were turned to blood. And the fish that was in the river died; and the river stank, and the
Egyptians could not drink of the water of the river; and there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt.
The Egyptian plagues were executed through the ministry of Moses.
Zephaniah 1:3. I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea,
and the stumblingblocks with the wicked; and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the LORD.
Ezekiel 38:18-23. 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. 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; 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. 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. 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. 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.

A third of the earth was burned, DESTROYED BY FIRE. This is stated in the original text.

THE SECOND TRUMPET. THE BURNING MOUNTAIN. Revelation 8:8-9. And the second angel sounded,
and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became
blood; And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the
ships were destroyed.
The appearance of a burning mountain as it were falling from the heavens is a METEOR.
Exodus 7:20. And Moses and Aaron did so, as the LORD commanded; and he lifted up the rod, and smote the
waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that were
in the river were turned to blood
Psalm 105:29. He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish.
Psalm 78:44. And had turned their rivers into blood; and their floods, that they could not drink.
Hosea 4:1-3. Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the
inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land. By swearing,
and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.
Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field,
and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.
Zephaniah 1:3. I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea,
and the stumblingblocks with the wicked; and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the LORD.
Joel 2:31. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day
of the LORD come.
Revelation 16:4. And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they
became blood.
Isaiah 2:12-16 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 129

every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and
lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan, And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted
up, And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall, And upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all
pleasant pictures.
The fall of this mighty meteor will result in gigantic TIDAL WAVES that will destroy ships for thousands of
miles.
The Lord Jesus referred to this in Luke 21:25-26. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in
the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men‟s hearts
failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven
shall be shaken.

THE THIRD TRUMPET. A GREAT STAR FELL FROM HEAVEN – WORMWOOD. Revelation 8:10-11.
And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon
the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and
the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made
bitter.
Wormwood means BITTER.
The arrival of this celestial body upon the earth is shown to POISON many millions of people. Events similar to
this on a local scale are not unknown in the history of the earth.
In the Aleutian Islands in 1823, a mighty volcanic eruption occurred. The result of this turned the water of the
river into the colour of beer, rendering them poisonous and totally unfit for human consumption.
Jeremiah 9:13-15. And the LORD saith, Because they have forsaken my law which I set before them, and have
not obeyed my voice, neither walked therein; But have walked after the imagination of their own heart, and after
Baalim, which their fathers taught them: Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I
will feed them, even this people, with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink.
Jeremiah 8:14. Why do we sit still? assemble yourselves, and let us enter into the defenced cities, and let us be
silent there: for the LORD our God hath put us to silence, and given us water of gall to drink, because we have
sinned against the LORD.
Jeremiah 23:15. Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; Behold, I will feed them with
wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall: for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone forth
into all the land.
Lamentations 3:15. He hath filled me with bitterness, he hath made me drunken with wormwood.
Deuteronomy 29:18. Lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turneth
away this day from the LORD our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations; lest there should be among
you a root that beareth gall and wormwood;
Exodus 7:17-24. Thus saith the LORD, In this thou shalt know that I am the LORD: behold, I will smite with
the rod that is in mine hand upon the waters which are in the river, and they shall be turned to blood. And the
fish that is in the river shall die, and the river shall stink; and the Egyptians shall lothe to drink of the water of
the river. And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and stretch out thine hand upon the
waters of Egypt, upon their streams, upon their rivers, and upon their ponds, and upon all their pools of water,
that they may become blood; and that there may be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of
wood, and in vessels of stone. And Moses and Aaron did so, as the LORD commanded; and he lifted up the
rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all
the waters that were in the river were turned to blood. And the fish that was in the river died; and the river
stank, and the Egyptians could not drink of the water of the river; and there was blood throughout all the land of
Egypt. And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments: and Pharaoh‟s heart was hardened, neither
did he hearken unto them; as the LORD had said. And Pharaoh turned and went into his house, neither did he
set his heart to this also. And all the Egyptians digged round about the river for water to drink; for they could
not drink of the water of the river.
Exodus 15:23-25. And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were
bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah. And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall
we drink? And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the
waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved
them,

THE FOURTH TRUMPET. THE SUN, MOON AND STARS ARE SMITTEN.
Revelation 8:12-13. And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part
of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a
third part of it, and the night likewise. And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven,
saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 130

trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!


Luke 21:25. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of
nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
Matthew 24:29. Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall
not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
Mark 13:24. But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her
light,
Isaiah 13:9-10. Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land
desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof
shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to
shine.
Jeremiah 4:23, 28. I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no
light. For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black: because I have spoken it, I have purposed
it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it.
Ezekiel 32:7-8. And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark; I will
cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light. All the bright lights of heaven will I make
dark over thee, and set darkness upon thy land, saith the Lord GOD.
Joel 2:10,30,31. 3:15. The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall
be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth,
blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the
great and the terrible day of the LORD come. The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall
withdraw their shining.
Amos 5:20. Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?
Zephaniah 1:14-16. The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day
of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a
day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, A day
of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.
This darkness will effect the CROPS of the earth; they will not ripen. Light and heat REDUCED BY THE
THIRD will result in a catastrophic CHANGE IN WEATHER CONDITIONS. Even the SEASONS will be
affected.
Isaiah 5:30. And in that day they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea: and if one look unto the
land, behold darkness and sorrow, and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof.
Amos 8:9. And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause the sun to go down at
noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day:
Matthew 27:45. Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.
At the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ, ONE THIRD of the Godhead was exposed to judgment. Here under
the fourth trumpet, the reciprocal punishment of the earth is undertaken. This results from the signs of the
Godhead in the heavens, the DARKENING of the sun, moon and stars.
Exodus 10:21-23. And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be
darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt. And Moses stretched forth his hand toward
heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days: They saw not one another, neither
rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.
Revelation 16:10. And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of
darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain.

THE ANGEL.

The FIRST FOUR trumpets deal with the PHYSICAL UNIVERSE, namely, the earth, seas, rivers, and the sun,
moon and stars. The LAST THREE are related to HUMAN BEINGS. Both the first four trumpets and vials
affect the same areas. The first, the earth; the second, the seas; the third, the rivers; the fourth the sun, moon and
stars. In each instance the trumpets inflict their plagues on the third part, while the vials deal with the entire
area. It is as though the trumpets are a warning, a teacher, of what is yet to unfold during the great tribulation
period.
Luke 17:34-37. I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other
shall be left. Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two men shall
be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord?
And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.
Matthew 24:27-28. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the
coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
Revelation 1:18. I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the

keys of hell and of death.


John 6:53-58. Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of
man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal
life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that
eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent me, and I
live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from
heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
Matthew 26:26-28. And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the
disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them,
saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of
sins.
Isaiah 40:29-31. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the
youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall
renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall
walk, and not faint.
Deuteronomy 32:11-12. As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings,
taketh them, beareth them on her wings: So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with
him.
The EAGLE is a symbol of the Spirit filled saints of God, whose desire it is to soar in the heavens. It is the
symbol of authority and power. It is a symbol of a king.
Its keen eyes shadow forth that the BRIDE OF CHRIST is ever watchful, always alert, always on guard, always
on the ready.
Matthew 24:42-44. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if
the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would
not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the
Son of man cometh.
1 Thessalonians 5:4-5. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye
are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
Psalm 149:5-9. Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand; To execute vengeance
upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with
fetters of iron; To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.
1 Corinthians 6:2-3. Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by
you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more
things that pertain to this life?
Hebrews 6:2. Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of
eternal judgment.
The eagle, in this instance, constitutes the BRIDE OF CHRIST. It is here in the interval between the sounding
of the fourth and fifth trumpets that this majestic bird‟s thundering voice heralds, WOE, WOE, WOE, to the
inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the other trumpets of the three angels, which are yet to
sound.
The last three trumpets are the THREE WOES.
It is here that the SPIRIT and the BRIDE says COME. And let him that heareth say come. And let him that is
athirst say come. and whosoever will, let him take of the water of life freely.
It is in this DUAL ROLE, of preaching salvation and demonstrating the power of God on the one hand, and
ministering and executing judgment on the other, that the bride of Christ or the manifested Sons of God,
communicate their END TIME MINISTRY.
Isaiah 61:1-2. The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good
tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the
opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of
vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
This ministry of JUDGMENT is further seen in the ARMY OF THE LORD.
Joel 2:1-11. Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the
land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; A day of darkness and of gloominess, a
day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong;
there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. A fire
devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and
behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them. The appearance of them is as the
appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run. Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains
shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 132

Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness. They shall run like mighty
men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not
break their ranks: Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall
upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall,
they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief. The earth shall quake before
them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth
his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?
As Moses was the instrument of God in the infliction of the plagues on Egypt, so the BRIDE OF CHRIST will
become the vehicle though which the TRUMPET JUDGMENTS will be released upon the earth.
As the EAGLE lives and soars in the high places of the earth so will the members of the BRIDE OF CHRIST
have their affection set on things above. Their citizenship is in heaven.
Philippians 3:20. For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus
Christ:
The world conversation is to be amended to CITIZENSHIP.
Hebrews 12:22-24. But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly
Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn,
which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to
Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of
Abel.
Revelation 4:6-7. And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne,
and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion,
and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying
eagle.
Revelation 5:8-10. And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down
before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of
saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for
thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and
nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
EAGLES in the Bible are synonymous with JUDGMENT.
Deuteronomy 28:49. The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as
the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand.
Jeremiah 4:13. Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: his horses are
swifter than eagles. Woe unto us! for we are spoiled.
Hosea 8:1. Set the trumpet to thy mouth. He shall come as an eagle against the house of the LORD, because
they have transgressed my covenant, and trespassed against my law.
Habakkuk 1:8. Their horses also are swifter than the leopards, and are more fierce than the evening wolves:
and their horsemen shall spread themselves, and their horsemen shall come from far; they shall fly as the eagle
that hasteth to eat.
Revelation 12:14. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the
wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the
serpent.
One translation declares that the eagle had a BLOOD RED TAIL.
This is prophetic of the three ensuing judgments that are now directed towards mankind. The inhabiters of the
earth will now be exposed to the GREATEST JUDGMENT OF GOD OF ALL TIME.

THE FIFTH TRUMPET. THE PLAGUE OF LOCUSTS. THE FIRST WOE!


Revelation 9:1-12. And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was
given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as
the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there
came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth
have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green
thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it
was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was
as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find
it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses
prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of
men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had
breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many
horses running to battle. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 133

power was to hurt men five months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit,
whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. One woe is
past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
Revelation 1:20. The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden
candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest
are the seven churches.
Revelation 12:1. And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon
under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
The star fell from the heaven to the earth. In so doing it was injected with SATANIC majesty and
AUTHORITY.
A star is a symbol of a SPIRIT FILLED BELIEVER.
This is the picture of the FALL OF THE ANTICHRIST. He will be one of the LAST DAY APOSTLES that
will fall.
He is here detected and discerned by the end time church. The church is made aware of this personage at this
time. It is NOT THE TIME for his full manifestation on the earth.
This son of perdition is also referred to in these scriptures.
John 17:12. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept,
and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
2 Thessalonians 2:3. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a
falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Luke 8:27-31. And when he went forth to land, there met him out of the city a certain man, which had devils
long time, and ware no clothes, neither abode in any house, but in the tombs. When he saw Jesus, he cried out,
and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most
high? I beseech thee, torment me not. (For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For
oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound with chains and in fetters; and he brake the bands, and was
driven of the devil into the wilderness.) And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion:
because many devils were entered into him. And they besought him that he would not command them to go out
into the deep.
Revelation 11:7. And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the
bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
Revelation 17:8. The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go
into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life
from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
Revelation 20:1-3. And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a
great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and
bound him a thousand years, 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.
Romans 10:7. Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)

The LOCUSTS are symbols of demonic forces. They are composed of HORSES, GOLD, MEN, WOMEN,
AND LIONS. They are shown to have breastplates, wings and tails.
These locusts are given power over men for FIVE MONTHS. They can inflict severe pain, yet DO NOT HAVE
THE POWERS OF DEATH.

Genesis 7:24. And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.

They had a KING over them. Earthly locusts DO NOT have a king over them.
Proverbs 30:27. The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands;
A degree of intelligence is given them. They have the ability to discern those with the SEAL OF THE LIVING
GOD; these they do not touch.
Their target of torment is MEN! They do not, as in the case of natural locusts, attack the earth, green things or
trees.
As in any army, so in Satan‟s army, there are DEGREES OF RANK. This is shown in Ephesians 6:12. For we
wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness
of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

The KEY is given to a person.


Revelation 1:18. I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the
keys of hell and of death.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 134

Satan gives power to this personage as he falls. He will in fact emerge with TOTAL POWER OVER ALL THE
EARTH. None will be able to resist him.
He will gain the whole world, but he will loose his own soul.
In the days that lie ahead, a gigantic increase in the OCCULT will occur. It will continue until this woe comes
upon the earth. The world will become completely saturated with DEMONIC POWER.
The antichrist is NOT MANIFESTED to the world at this point in time; he is however, detected by the church
here.

Isaiah 14:12. How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the
ground, which didst weaken the nations!
Luke 10:18. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

Exodus 10:4-15. Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, to morrow will I bring the locusts into thy
coast: And they shall cover the face of the earth, that one cannot be able to see the earth: and they shall eat the
residue of that which is escaped, which remaineth unto you from the hail, and shall eat every tree which groweth
for you out of the field: And they shall fill thy houses, and the houses of all thy servants, and the houses of all
the Egyptians; which neither thy fathers, nor thy fathers‟ fathers have seen, since the day that they were upon the
earth unto this day. And he turned himself, and went out from Pharaoh. And Pharaoh‟s servants said unto him,
How long shall this man be a snare unto us? let the men go, that they may serve the LORD their God: knowest
thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed? And Moses and Aaron were brought again unto Pharaoh: and he said unto
them, Go, serve the LORD your God: but who are they that shall go? And Moses said, We will go with our
young and with our old, with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our herds will we go; for
we must hold a feast unto the LORD. And he said unto them, Let the LORD be so with you, as I will let you go,
and your little ones: look to it; for evil is before you. Not so: go now ye that are men, and serve the LORD; for
that ye did desire. And they were driven out from Pharaoh‟s presence. And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch
out thine hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up upon the land of Egypt, and eat
every herb of the land, even all that the hail hath left. And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt,
and the LORD brought an east wind upon the land all that day, and all that night; and when it was morning, the
east wind brought the locusts. And the locusts went up over all the land of Egypt, and rested in all the coasts of
Egypt: very grievous were they; before them there were no such locusts as they, neither after them shall be such.
For they covered the face of the whole earth, so that the land was darkened; and they did eat every herb of the
land, and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left: and there remained not any green thing in the trees, or
in the herbs of the field, through all the land of Egypt.

Ezekiel 9:4-6. And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem,
and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the
midst thereof. And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not
your eye spare, neither have ye pity: Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women:
but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient
men which were before the house.
That evils are aware that a time of TORMENT for them exists, there is no doubt.
Matthew 8:29. And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art
thou come hither to torment us before the time?
Revelation 14:10-11. The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without
mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the
holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
Revelation 20:10. 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.
Isaiah 4:5. And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a
cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence.
Zechariah 2:5. For I, saith the LORD, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the
midst of her.
With all the excruciating pain and torment, men would NOT REPENT. Rather, they wished and sought death.
DEATH EVADED THEM.
The desire for death has its reality in former times.
Jeremiah 8:3. And death shall be chosen rather than life by all the residue of them that remain of this evil
family, which remain in all the places whither I have driven them, saith the LORD of hosts.

Joel 1:6. For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion,
and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 135

He is called the DESTROYER.


Jeremiah 4:7. The lion is come up from his thicket, and the destroyer of the Gentiles is on his way; he is gone
forth from his place to make thy land desolate; and thy cities shall be laid waste, without an inhabitant.
Jeremiah 6:26. O daughter of my people, gird thee with sackcloth, and wallow thyself in ashes: make thee
mourning, as for an only son, most bitter lamentation: for the spoiler shall suddenly come upon us.
Isaiah 16:4. Let mine outcasts dwell with thee, Moab; be thou a covert to them from the face of the spoiler: for
the extortioner is at an end, the spoiler ceaseth, the oppressors are consumed out of the land.
Daniel 8:24-25. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully,
and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. And through his policy also he
shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy
many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.
Daniel 9:26. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of
the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and
unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
Daniel 11:44. But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with
great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.
These SUPERNATURAL BEINGS when released will attack man in a manner hitherto not experienced in his
history.
The FALLEN STAR and the KING OF THE LOCUSTS are TWO DIFFERENT PEOPLE.
When released from their place in the bottomless pit, those without the seal of the living God upon them, will
find a living hell, a time of torment that wishing for death is the only possible solution. They will not find it.

Isaiah 24:22. And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the
prison, and after many days shall they be visited.
Psalm 69:15. Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut
her mouth upon me.
Ezekiel 26:20. When I shall bring thee down with them that descend into the pit, with the people of old time,
and shall set thee in the low parts of the earth, in places desolate of old, with them that go down to the pit, that
thou be not inhabited; and I shall set glory in the land of the living;
Ezekiel 31:16. I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, when I cast him down to hell with them that
descend into the pit: and all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon, all that drink water, shall be
comforted in the nether parts of the earth.
Isaiah 14:9. Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee,
even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.
Numbers 16:33. They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon
them: and they perished from among the congregation.
Psalm 28:1. Unto thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; be not silent to me: lest, if thou be silent to me, I become
like them that go down into the pit.
Job 17:16. They shall go down to the bars of the pit, when our rest together is in the dust.

THE SIXTH TRUMPET. THE PLAGUE OF HORSEMEN. Revelation 9:13-21, 10, 11:1-14. THE SECOND
WOE! And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before
God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river
Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a
year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand
thousand: and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them,
having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions;
and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by
the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. For their power is in their
mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt. And
the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they
should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can
see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication,
nor of their thefts. And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a
rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: And he had in his
hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, And cried with a
loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. And when the
seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me,
Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. And the angel which I saw stand
upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever,
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 136

who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea,
and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: But in the days of the voice of the seventh
angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants
the prophets. And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little
book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth. And I went unto
the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall
make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. And I took the little book out of the angel‟s
hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings. And
there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and
the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not;
for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. And I will
give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days,
clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the
earth. And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if
any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in
the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all
plagues, as often as they will. And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of
the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies
shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was
crucified. And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days
and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth shall
rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented
them that dwelt on the earth. And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and
they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from
heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld
them. And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake
were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. The
second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

Under the fifth trumpet plagues of demonic locusts visit the earth – they DO NOT HAVE THE POWER TO
KILL, only to afflict torment. Here under the sixth trumpet, the multitudinous plague of demonic horsemen are
empowered to SLAY A THIRD of the population of the earth!

The four bad angels, leaders of this invasion from hell, are bound in the river Euphrates. This river formed one
of the borders of the promised land.
Genesis 15-18. In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto this seed have I given this
land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:
Their number is said to be TWO HUNDRED MILLION.
Psalm 68:17. The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels: the Lord is among them, as in
Sinai, in the holy place.

They discharge RED FIRE, BLUE JACINTH, AND YELLOW BRIMSTONE from their mouths. Their power
is derived from their mouths and TAILS. The tails are in the form of SERPENTS HEADS.

A VOICE issued from the golden altar, the place of PRAYER and PRAISE.
Matthew 8:28-29. And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him
two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.
And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither
to torment us before the time?

These are four FALLEN angels. As God has four leaders in authority, so also has the devil. His methods of
duplication of God‟s order are consistent. They change not in this instance.

This hideous plague, THE SECOND WOE, is encountered by all the dwellers on earth PRIOR to the great
tribulation period.

The sixth trumpet extends from Revelation 9:13 to Revelation 11:14, a total of THIRTY-THREE VERSES.

THE GOLDEN ALTAR.


End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 137

Exodus 30:6. And thou shalt put it before the vail that is by the ark of the testimony, before the mercy seat that
is over the testimony, where I will meet with thee.
Exodus 40:5. And thou shalt set the altar of gold for the incense before the ark of the testimony, and put the
hanging of the door to the tabernacle.
The golden altar is here shown to be IMMEDIATELY BEFORE the PRESENCE of the Lord. These bound
angels are shown to be PROPHETIC OF THE BINDING OF LUCIFER himself.
Revelation 20:2-7. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound
him a thousand years, 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. 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 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;
and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the
thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 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. And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his
prison.
2 Peter 2:4. For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into
chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
Jude 6. And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in
everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
1 Peter 3:19. By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;
These angels were reserved unto, or for, the day of judgment. Their judgment was not their own. Rather, they
were to administer the judgment of God under this trumpet.
Jeremiah 46:4-10. Harness the horses; and get up, ye horsemen, and stand forth with your helmets; furbish the
spears, and put on the brigandines. Wherefore have I seen them dismayed and turned away back? and their
mighty ones are beaten down, and are fled apace, and look not back: for fear was round about, saith the LORD.
Let not the swift flee away, nor the mighty man escape; they shall stumble, and fall toward the north by the river
Euphrates. Who is this that cometh up as a flood, whose waters are moved as the rivers? Egypt riseth up like a
flood, and his waters are moved like the rivers; and he saith, I will go up, and will cover the earth; I will destroy
the city and the inhabitants thereof. Come up, ye horses; and rage, ye chariots; and let the mighty men come
forth; the Ethiopians and the Libyans, that handle the shield; and the Lydians, that handle and bend the bow.
For this is the day of the Lord GOD of hosts, a day of vengeance, that he may avenge him of his adversaries:
and the sword shall devour, and it shall be satiate and made drunk with their blood: for the Lord GOD of hosts
hath a sacrifice in the north country by the river Euphrates.
Jeremiah 4:13, 29. Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: his horses are
swifter than eagles. Woe unto us! for we are spoiled. The whole city shall flee for the noise of the horsemen and
bowmen; they shall go into thickets, and climb up upon the rocks: every city shall be forsaken, and not a man
dwell therein.
These Satanic horsemen are prepared for this specific time. They are SUPERNATURAL BEINGS, the like no
earth dweller has seen.
Exodus 34:10. And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not
been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which thou art shall see the work of the
LORD: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with thee.
Isaiah 31:3. Now the Egyptians are men, and not God; and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When the LORD
shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is holpen shall fall down, and they all shall
fail together.
Jeremiah 8:13-17. I will surely consume them, saith the LORD: there shall be no grapes on the vine, nor figs on
the fig tree, and the leaf shall fade; and the things that I have given them shall pass away from them. Why do
we sit still? assemble yourselves, and let us enter into the defenced cities, and let us be silent there: for the
LORD our God hath put us to silence, and given us water of gall to drink, because we have sinned against the
LORD. We looked for peace, but no good came; and for a time of health, and behold trouble! The snorting of
his horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they
are come, and have devoured the land, and all that is in it; the city, and those that dwell therein. For, behold, I
will send serpents, cockatrices, among you, which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, saith the LORD.

WORKS OF MEN‟S HANDS IS IDOLATRY. Devil worship is associated with it. This is indicative of the
resurgence and great revival of DEMON WORSHIP and idolatry in this day.
Deuteronomy 4:28. And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men‟s hands, wood and stone, which neither see,
nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 138

Psalm 135:15. The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of men‟s hands.
Matthew 12:43-45. When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest,
and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he
findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked
than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so
shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
1 Corinthians 10:20. But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to
God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.
1 Timothy 4:1. Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith,
giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
Deuteronomy 32:17. They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that
came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.
Deuteronomy 31:29. For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt yourselves, and turn aside from the
way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because ye will do evil in the sight
of the LORD, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands.

The increasing fascination in the occult and other related practices is no chance incident. As seen in this
trumpet, this interest will generate into an all time high in the last days. Here it is shown as a standard accepted
practice.

LYING SPIRITS are everywhere on the increase.


1 Kings 22:22-23. And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying
spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do
so. Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the
LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee.
1 Timothy 4:1. Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith,
giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
Revelation 18:23. And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom
and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by
thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
Galatians 5:20. Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Exodus 7:22. And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments: and Pharaoh‟s heart was hardened,
neither did he hearken unto them; as the LORD had said.
Isaiah 47:9,12,13. But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and
widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great
abundance of thine enchantments. Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries,
wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail.
Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly
prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.
Leviticus 19:31. Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I
am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 20:6,27. And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a
whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people. A man
also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them
with stones: their blood shall be upon them.
Deuteronomy 18:10-12. There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to
pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer,
or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an
abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from
before thee.
Exodus 22:18. Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.
1 Samuel 28:7. Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit, that I may go to
her, and enquire of her. And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at
Endor.
1 Chronicles 10:13-14. So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the LORD, even against
the word of the LORD, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to
enquire of it; And enquired not of the LORD: therefore he slew him, and turned the kingdom unto David the
son of Jesse.
Isaiah 8:19. And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that
peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?

Acts 16:16. And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met
us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:
SORCERY mentioned here included, divination, enchantment, incantation, magic, necromancy, witchcraft,
familiar spirits, wizards, witches and soothsayers.

SUPERNATURAL HORSES are not unknown in the Scriptures.


2 Kings 2:11. And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire,
and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.
2 Kings 6:17. And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD
opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire
round about Elisha.

In all this, men would not repent. To some people no amount of chastising and discipline has an effect.
Proverbs 27:22. Though thou shouldest bray a fool in a mortar among wheat with a pestle, yet will not his
foolishness depart from him.
2 Timothy 3:13. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
1 Timothy 4:1-3. Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith,
giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience
seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to
be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
1 Corinthians 10:19-22. What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols
is any thing? But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and
I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of
devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord‟s table, and of the table of devils. Do we provoke the Lord to
jealousy? are we stronger than he?
Leviticus 17:7. And they shall no more offer their sacrifices unto devils, after whom they have gone a whoring.
This shall be a statute for ever unto them throughout their generations.
Psalm 106:36-37. And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them. Yea, they sacrificed their sons
and their daughters unto devils. All idolatry and demon worship pave the way for the ULTIMATE
FULFILLMENT of WORSHIPPING THE BEAST!
Revelation 13:14-16. And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had
power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to
the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the
beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of
the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a
mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

FOUR major sections of life are affected under this trumpet.


MURDER will be status quo. There will be no witholding or restraint among men. Violence will prevail.

SORCERY. The Greek word used is the one from which the English word pharmacy is derived. It is well
known that an enchanter with drugs paves the way for devil worship. Hallucinatory drugs open the door wide
for communication with evil spirits. Drastic results appear. Often the user‟s life is very much endangered, and
a high percentage of abusers end in death.

The relaxing of marriage laws in our societies is clearly evidenced. FORNICATION is the order of the day.

2 Timothy 3:1. This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
THEFTS, and the destruction of property are rampant.
Jeremiah 12:5. If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend
with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the
swelling of Jordan?
2 Timothy 3:1-5,13. his know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of
their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without
natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors,
heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the
power thereof: from such turn away. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and
being deceived.
The revival of spiritism and the occult will be attended with an onslaught of IDOLATRY.

The cry proceeds from the FOUR HORNS of the golden altar. It is to this and the voice of the souls under the
altar during the fifth seal that the Lord draws his attention. The origin of murder, false worship and idolatry, and
the making of a legitimate entry into the world by the Devil through the fall of mankind began in the Garden of
Eden.

Upon their loosing, TWO HUNDRED MILLION demonic horsemen ride in their invasion from hell.
Revelation 19:11-16. And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called
Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on
his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed
with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven
followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp
sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the
winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name
written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
ONE THIRD of the population of the earth is killed. The current population of the world is in excess of four
billion people. When this second woe touches the earth, OVER A BILLION human beings will loose their
lives! The ratio is one in three. In the EGYPTIAN plague it was ONE IN TEN. This will be THREE TIMES
more severe!
Exodus 12:29-30. And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt,
from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and
all the firstborn of cattle. And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and
there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead.

TIME. One year, one month, one day, and one hour. Taken literally this trumpet judgment would execute its
wrath in a little over THIRTEEN MONTHS. It points to a specific time, designed by the Lord, when this
satanic invasion from hell will take place.
What will it take to bring men to repentance? This severe judgment will not do it. The Lord Jesus was very
specific, stating that even if a person rose from the dead , men would not yet believe. If a man will not accept
the clear teaching of the WORD OF THE LORD, there is no hope.
Luke 16:31. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded,
though one rose from the dead.

THE SEVENTH TRUMPET. THE THIRD WOE! VOICES, HAIL AND EARTHQUAKES.
Revelation 10:7; 11:15. But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the
mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets. And the seventh angel
sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms
of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
1 Corinthians 15:50-52. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God;
neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall
all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the
dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the
archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and
remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be
with the Lord.
Matthew 24:30-31. And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of
the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the
four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

It is important to note that the seventh angel is said to sound over DAYS. This is, it sound over a PERIOD OF
TIME. Its extension includes the wonders of Revelation 12. It commences with the culmination of the
MYSTERY OF GOD, and concludes with the KINGDOMS OF THIS WORLD becoming the kingdoms of our
LORD, and of HIS CHRIST.

The MYSTERY OF GOD includes the MARRIAGE of the Lord Jesus to the church, the conception, birth and
translation of the MANCHILD, and the final overthrow and CASTING DOWN OF SATAN from the heavens.
There are many mysteries in the Bible but the GREATEST is the Union of Christ to the Church.
Ephesians 5:32. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 141

As the seventh seal includes the seven trumpets and seven vial, so here, the SEVENTH TRUMPET INCLUDES
THE SEVEN VIALS. Consequently, the seventh trumpet includes all that transpires from the DAY OF
ATONEMENT to the church, to the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. From chapter 10:7 to
Revelation 19:11-16.

In Revelation 11:15, the plural word kingdoms , should be amended to read in the singular, KINGDOM. It
declares therefore that the SOVEREIGNTY of the world, the CONSTITUTED ORDER on the earth, have
become our Lords and his Christ‟s.
When Adam sinned, DEATH, the nature of the devil, SEIZED THE SOVEREIGNTY. Satan is the god and
king of this world. The rightful king and kingdom is that of the Lord Jesus Christ. When the seventh trumpet
ceases to sound, the Lord will have come, established, and enforced his rightful authority as KING over the
earth.
The TITLE DEEDS of the earth never at any time were surrendered by God to the Devil. He, (God), has always
had them in His possession. He has them now. At the conclusion of the sounding of the seventh trumpet the
kingdoms of the world will yield to their RIGHTFUL OWNER. Therefore, at the second coming of the Lord
Jesus Christ a radical CHANGE IN WORLD GOVERNMENT will occur. The sovereignty of the Lord Jesus
Christ will be established. At the present time the sovereignty has not become the Lord‟s. The RIGHT is His.
At His coming that right will be enforced.

God views all world powers, regardless of persuasion, as WILD BEASTS. This is clearly expressed in Daniel
7. The lion, eagle, bear, leopard, and nondescript are all, wild beasts!

The highest from of human government is a REPUBLIC. Every DEMOCRACY in history has either ended in
bankruptcy or war. According to the 1928 U.S. Army manual, democracy is the worst possible form of
government known to man. The founding father of the U.S.A. and the creators of the American constitution
always had in their minds, the problem of stopping the republic from degenerating into a democracy.
COMMUNISM, the form of government, that believes that the state has precedence over the God given rights of
the individual, has its roots in Satan himself.
There is no such thing as a Christian country. A Christian government can never exist. All governments in the
mind of the Almighty are beasts! Even God‟s own law produced death and could not avert His people from
entering into apostasy. Israel was to become like every other nation of the earth.
Revolution, liberal law reform, new legislation, can never change the heart of man!

GOVERNMENT IS NECESSARY. It is ordained of God. The sovereignty however, lies not in the hand of
Almighty God, but in the god of this world, Satan.
Romans 13:1-7. Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers
that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they
that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt
thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is
the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in
vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Wherefore ye must
needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they
are God‟s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to
whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.
1 Timothy 2:1-4. I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks,
be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in
all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all
men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

The NONDESCRIPT BEAST is said to be DIVERSE from all the beasts that were before it. This is because it
is a TOTAL world power. It is a confederation of all the nations of the earth. It is a WORLD
GOVERNMENT! Plans of men for many years, have been set in motion for its accomplishment. In a few very
short years the world will see the manifestation of hundreds of years of scheming of the minds of men. The
plans for world government are today so far entrenched, that they can never be reversed. The predictions of
both Daniel and John are soon to come to pass. The hideous beast that is said to be dreadful and terrible and
exceedingly strong with iron teeth, will devour, break in pieces, and stamp on every individual that will not
succumb to its desire and diabolical intentions. It will appear as the supposed utopia men have dreamed of,
sacrificed, and planned for for years. God does not see this creation of satanic inspired men as a panacea for all
the world‟s problems. Rather, He sees it as a beast, more hideous than anything that has gone before it.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 142

When the seventh trumpet sounds, a whole NEW WORLD ORDER will be established. The sovereignty of
God will be enforced. His rightful dominion will be established.
Daniel 2:44. And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be
destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these
kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
Revelation 11:17-18. Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come;
because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is
come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy
servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy
them which destroy the earth. God will take His lawful and rightful power and reign. The usurper, Satan, will
be put down.

THE NATIONS WERE ANGRY. Psalm 2:2-4. The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take
counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast
away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
Psalm 83:1-5, 12-18. Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. For, lo, thine
enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against
thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a
nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one
consent: they are confederate against thee: Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.
O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind. As the fire burneth a wood, and as the
flame setteth the mountains on fire; So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.
Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD. Let them be confounded and troubled for
ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish: That men may know that thou, whose name alone is
JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.

A TIME OF JUDGMENT. Romans 3:5-6. But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God,
what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man) God forbid: for then how
shall God judge the world?
Isaiah 26:20-21. Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as
it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to
punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more
cover her slain.
Psalm 68:1-3. Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him. As smoke
is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of
God. But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.

THE JUDGMENT OF THE DEAD. Revelation 18:6. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto
her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
Revelation 20:12-13. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and
another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were
written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell
delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

REWARD PROPHETS. Revelation 10:7. But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall
begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
2 Kings 9:7. And thou shalt smite the house of Ahab thy master, that I may avenge the blood of my servants the
prophets, and the blood of all the servants of the LORD, at the hand of Jezebel.
Daniel 9:6,10. Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings,
our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land. Neither have we obeyed the voice of the LORD
our God, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets.
2 Kings 17:13. Yet the LORD testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the
seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my statutes, according to all the
law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets. Until the Lord
removed Israel out of his sight, as he had said by all his SERVANTS THE PROPHETS. So was Israel carried
away out of their own land to Assyria unto this day.
2 Kings 21:10. And the LORD spake by his servants the prophets, saying,
2 Kings 24:2. And the LORD sent against him bands of the Chaldees, and bands of the Syrians, and bands of
the Moabites, and bands of the children of Ammon, and sent them against Judah to destroy it, according to the
word of the LORD, which he spake by his servants the prophets.

Matthew 5:10-12. Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness‟ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of
heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against
you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted
they the prophets which were before you.

The last trump is the SEVENTH! The RIGHTEOUS DEAD are raised at this time. This is the time of the
fulfillment of the following verses.
Matthew 13:41-43. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all
things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing
and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath
ears to hear, let him hear.
The time of judgment of the dead is shown to be in the days of the sounding of seventh angel. It is here made
clear that death is not the end of man. He is to be raised and judged according to his works.
This is a far cry from the attitude of men in this day. In many cases wrongdoers are not punished. Many
criminals are admired as heroes. Their crimes are honored. Law enforcement agencies are mocked. What
injustice. What inhumanity of man.

Leviticus 25:9-10. Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh
month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. And ye shall hallow
the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile
unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.
The BRIDE OF CHRIST experiences this, the 120th Jubilee, on the fulfillment of the Day of Atonement to the
Church. The remainder of the church, receives this at the second coming of the Lord. Both applications are
contained under the sounding of the seventh trumpet, the former at the beginning, the latter at the end.

It is also at the beginning to sound of this last trumpet that the TEMPLE OF GOD IS OPENED IN HEAVEN,
and the ARK OF THE COVENANT of God‟s glory is seen.
The glory of God is also revealed on the SIGN WOMAN, the Bride of Christ.

The seventh trumpet is the THIRD WOE. The first and second woes are readily identifiable. The third
however, is not clearly seen. It appears in Revelation 12:12. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in
them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath,
because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. The third woe has particular reference to the dwellers on the
earth immediately prior to the tribulation period.

HALF OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION is related to the seventh trumpet, the third woe!
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 145

At last, the earth will see the reigning of its TRUE and RIGHTFUL KING.
Revelation 20:6. 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.
2 Samuel 15:10. But Absalom sent spies throughout all the tribes of Israel, saying, As soon as ye hear the sound
of the trumpet, then ye shall say, Absalom reigneth in Hebron.
1 Kings 1:39. And Zadok the priest took an horn of oil out of the tabernacle, and anointed Solomon. And they
blew the trumpet; and all the people said, God save king Solomon.

The answer to the disciple‟s prayer will have come, “THY KINGDOM COME!”
Exodus 15:18. The LORD shall reign for ever and ever.
Psalm 10:16. The LORD is King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land.
Daniel 2:44. And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be
destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these
kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
Daniel 7:14. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and
languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his
kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
The sovereignty of the Lord is not revealed until his reign on the earth in Revelation 20. There is no hope for
the inhabitants of the earth in human religions and man made laws.
Ezekiel 21:27. I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and
I will give it him.
John 18:36. Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would
my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

LIGHTNINGS, VOICES, THUNDERINGS, and EARTHQUAKES, and a GREAT HAIL attend the sounding
of this, the last trumpet. The sounding of the seventh trumpet precipitates a mighty COMMOTION.

The destruction of the ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT, and its head, the antichrist occurs here. The devil
incarnate in human flesh, is overthrown. World rule will come to an end.

The LONGING of every saint will be realized at this time.

SECTION 8

THE SEVEN VIALS

THE GREAT TRIBULATION. This section covers the period of time from BEGINNING of the great
tribulation period, to the SECOND COMING of the Lord Jesus Christ.

THE FIRST PROPHECY OF THE BIBLE IS FULFILLED. Genesis 3:15. And I will put enmity between thee
and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
There is a primary fulfillment of this in the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ. The ultimate application is in
the END TIME BRIDE of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelation 12:5. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her
child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time:

The word children in this verse does not refer to BABES.

SATAN CAST OUT OF HEAVEN. Revelation 12:9. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent,
called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were

inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he
knoweth that he hath but a short time.
SATAN PERSECUTES THE WOMAN. Revelation 12:13. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the
earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

This is the time of the MANIFESTATION OF THE ANTICHRIST, and the MARK OF THE BEAST, 666.
It is here that the Bride of Christ is TAKEN OUT TO THE WILDERNESS. Revelation 12:14. And to the
woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is
nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
Song of Solomon 6:10. Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and
terrible as an army with banners?
Song of Solomon 8:5. Who is this that cometh up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved?
Isaiah 26:20-21. Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as
it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to
punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more
cover her slain.

TIME, TIMES AND HALF A TIME. Revelation 12:14. And to the woman were given two wings of a great
eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and
half a time, from the face of the serpent.
Daniel 7:25. And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most
High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the

dividing of time.
Daniel 12:7. And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his
right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times,
and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall
be finished.

ONE THOUSAND, TWO HUNDRED AND THREESCORE DAYS. Revelation 12:6. And the woman fled
into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two
hundred and threescore days.
Revelation 11:3. And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two
hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

THE LAST HALF OF DANIEL‟S SEVENTHIETH WEEK. Daniel 9:26-27. And after threescore and two
weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the
city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are
determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall
cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it
desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

This is where the UNWISE VIRGIN CLASS ARE SHUT OUT. Matthew 25:10. And while they went to buy,
the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

THE OUTER COURT CLASS LEFT OUT. Revelation 11:2. But the court which is without the temple leave

shall be left. Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two men shall
be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord?

into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

THE SEVEN TIMES PROPHECY IS FULFILLED HERE

THE TIMES OF THE GENTILES END

THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES IS FULFILLED. B. DWELLING IN BOOTHS


THE TEN TOES, TEN HORNS, AND TEN KINGS ARE FULLY MANIFESTED HERE. Daniel 2:41-44.
And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters‟ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided;
but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And
as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly
broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of
men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. And in the days of these
kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be
left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
Daniel 7:7,20,24. After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 148

strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the
feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. And of the ten horns
that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had
eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. And the ten horns
out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from
the first, and he shall subdue three kings.
Revelation 12:3. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven
heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
Revelation 13:1. And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven
heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
Revelation 17:12, 16. And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as
yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast,
these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

THE LITTLE HORN, the Antichrist, is in Full Authority Over the nations of the Earth.
Daniel 7:8,20,21,25. I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before
whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the
eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things. And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other
which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great
things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and
prevailed against them; And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of
the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times
and the dividing of time.

THE TWO WITNESSES. Revelation 11:1-12. And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel
stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court
which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city
shall they tread under foot forty and two months. And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall
prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and
the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of
their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to
turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. And when they shall have
finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and
shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which
spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. And they of the people and kindreds
and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies
to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send
gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. And after three days
and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon
them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they
ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
Zechariah 4:1-14. And the angel that talked with me came again, and waked me, as a man that is wakened out
of his sleep, And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold,
with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon
the top thereof: And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side
thereof. So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord? Then the
angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.
Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by
might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. Who art thou, O great mountain? before
Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying,
Grace, grace unto it. Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, The hands of Zerubbabel have
laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath
sent me unto you. For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the
plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro
through the whole earth. Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side
of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof? And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two
olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves? And he answered
me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord. Then said he, These are the two
anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 149

The Bible teaches that these two witnesses are prophets, have physical bodies, are subject to death, and
TESTIFY. They are called the SONS OF OIL, that is sons of the Holy Ghost, anointed ones. Their ministry is
shown to extend through the entire period of the great tribulation of three and a half years. Their place of
residence is Jerusalem. Their ministry is that of JUDGMENT. After being slain by the beast, lying on the
streets in full public gaze for three and a half days, they experience resurrection life and ascend to heaven.

In order to be a WITNESS, or to testify, both the Old and New Testaments demand that the establishing of such
testimony shall be in the mouth of TWO or THREE.
Numbers 35:30. Whoso killeth any person, the murderer shall be put to death by the mouth of witnesses: but
one witness shall not testify against any person to cause him to die.
Deuteronomy 17:6. At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to
death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.
Matthew 18:16. But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or
three witnesses every word may be established.
1 Timothy 5:19. Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.

Revelation 19:10. And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy
fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is
the spirit of prophecy.
1 Corinthians 12:10. To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits;
to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
Ephesians 4:11. And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and
teachers;
There are seen THREE LEVELS of prophecy.
Firstly, there is the ascension gift ministry of a PROPHET. Only God can place a person in this office.
Secondly, there is a GIFT OF PROPHECY. The Holy Spirit grants this gift to various members of the body of
Christ. The gift is not to be confused with the office of a prophet, who will, with the gift of prophecy, also
operate the gift of a word of knowledge. Because a certain member of the body of Christ operates a gift of
prophecy, that is not guarantee that that person has the call of the ascension gift of a prophet upon his life. That
gift is far greater calling than the operation of a vocal gift.
Thirdly, there is the SPIRIT OF PROPHECY. This is shown to be the testimony of Jesus. This, every believer
has.

In order for a person to be a WITNESS, they must of necessity, have personally seen an event transpire.
Heresay, or second hand knowledge is of no value at all in the law courts of the world. Likewise, this also
applies to the supreme court of the universe, the throne of heaven.
The two witnesses therefore must have KNOWN and SEEN Jesus and the events of his life PERSONALLY! If
not, their testimony is invalid. It would carry no authority whatsoever.

From the following verses it will be seen that TWO MEN accompanied the Lord Jesus through the great
pinnacles of his earthly ministry.
Matthew 2:1,2,11,12. Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold,
there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have
seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. And when they were come into the house, they saw the
young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their
treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. And being warned of God in a
dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.
The Bible does not state how many wise men visited the Christ child on this occasion. In order to fulfill the
demands of both Law and Grace, there would have been three required.
At the BIRTH OF ISAAC, the child through whom the blessings of God and the establishing of the Abrahamic
covenant came, THREE HEAVENLY WITNESSES appeared!
This was a THEOPHANY. A manifestation of God in three persons.
Genesis 18:2. And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he
ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,
John 8:56,58. Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad. Jesus said unto them,
Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
1 John 5:7. For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these
three are one.
Abraham, the father, intercedes with God the Father, while the Son and the Holy Spirit proceed to Sodom and
Gomorrah to inflict judgment!
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 150

Ezekiel 16:49-50. Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of
idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they
were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.
Romans 15:8. Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm
the promises made unto the fathers:

The THREE EARTHLY WITNESSES.


1 John 5:8. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these
three agree in one. The SPIRIT relates to ENOCH whose walk before the Lord was so will pleasing that he was
translated to heaven by the power of the Holy Spirit. BLOOD identifies Moses‟ ministry of turning the waters
to blood in Egypt. WATER speaks of ELIJAH, the one who shut the heavens that it might not rain!
Enoch remains in heaven while the TWO WITNESSES appear in spiritual Sodom, that is, Jerusalem,
ministering judgment.
For the perfection of testimony at the birth of the Lord Jesus a THIRD witness was present. This third man,
forming a mighty triad of human leaders on the earth, is also seen in the Book of Revelation.
Revelation 19:10; 22:8,9. And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am
thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus
is the spirit of prophecy. 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. Then saith he unto me, See thou do
it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this
book: worship God.
A major prophet of the Old Testament who prophesied concerning the Second coming of the Lord Jesus in
power and great glory was ENOCH.
Jude 14. And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with
ten thousands of his saints. That prophecy has not yet come to pass. It was given five thousand years ago. This
does not indicate that Enoch was a false prophet. Rather, it establishes him with the CHURCH of the last days
and does indeed reveal that he has a specific ministry in the END TIMES.
Enoch, was the fellowservant, the prophet who revealed unto John the Book of revelation.

How much more would there be THREE WITNESSES at the birth of the child in whom the everlasting
covenant was to be established.
Enoch, and the two witnesses were present at the BIRTH of the Lord Jesus.

ANGELS came and ministered to the Lord at the completion of the TEMPTATION.
Matthew 4:1-11. Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when
he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. And when the tempter came to him, he
said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is
written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Then the
devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, And saith unto him, If thou
be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in
their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. Jesus said unto him, It is
written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high
mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these
things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan:
for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth
him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.
The angels may refer to men, and even God, is seen in Genesis 18:2,3,13,16,22; 19:1. And he lift up his eyes
and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and
bowed himself toward the ground, And said, My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I
pray thee, from thy servant: And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a
surety bear a child, which am old? And the men rose up from thence, and looked toward Sodom: and Abraham
went with them to bring them on the way. And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom:
but Abraham stood yet before the LORD. And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate
of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;

THE TRANSFIGURATION. Luke 9:28-31. And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he
took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray. And as he prayed, the fashion of his
countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering. And, behold, there talked with him two men,
which were Moses and Elias: Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at
Jerusalem.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 151

THE ASCENSION. John 20:11-14. But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she
stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the
other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith
unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him. And when she
had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.
Acts 1:9-11. And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received
him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood
by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same
Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
HEAVENLY BEINGS attended every major event in the life of the Lord Jesus. The two witnesses are named
in the Mount of Transfiguration. They are MOSES and ELIJAH. These giants of God represent the Law and
the Prophets of the Old Testament.

THE JEWS do not accept the testimony of the Lord Jesus. They do not accept him as the Messiah. They do,
however, receive the witness of these two men.
Zechariah 12:9-14. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come
against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of
grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him,
as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of
Megiddon. And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their
wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart; The family of the house of Levi
apart, and their wives apart; the family of Shimei apart, and their wives apart; All the families that remain,
every family apart, and their wives apart.
Mourning is only undertaken for one that is lost! It will be through the ministry of what is to the Jew, the final
court of appeal, the Law and the Prophets, that their eyes will be opened, and as a nation, will turn to the Lord.
Jesus himself taught that there is NO HIGHER APPEAL than that of Moses and Elijah.
Luke 16:28-31. For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of
torment. Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay,
father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear
not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
Hosea 6:5. Therefore have I hewed them by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of my mouth: and thy
judgments are as the light that goeth forth.
The Jews are yet to be REGRAFTED into their olive tree. PAUL taught this.
Romans 11:10-26. Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway. I say
then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto
the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the
diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness? For I speak to you Gentiles,
inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office: If by any means I may provoke to
emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them. For if the casting away of them be the
reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead? For if the firstfruit be holy,
the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. And if some of the branches be broken off,
and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of
the olive tree; Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.
Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. Well; because of unbelief they
were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: For if God spared not the natural
branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them
which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut
off. And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.
For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good
olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree? For I
would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that
blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be
saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

ELIJAH must come.


Malachi 4:5-6. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the
LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers,
lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
Matthew 17:10-13. And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 152

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. But I say unto you,
That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise
shall also the Son of man suffer of them. Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the
Baptist.

The TWO WITNESSES can be readily identified by their ministries that they effected while on earth.
The ability to turn WATER INTO BLOOD lay with Moses. The ability to shut the heaven that it would NOT
RAIN lies with Elijah.

MOSES. Together with AARON his BROTHER, a prophet, Moses stood against Pharaoh, the KING OF THE
WORLD, with the testimony of the I AM.
This foreshadowed the judgmental ministry of the APOSTLE and PROPHET in the church.
Moses will again stand before the king of the world (the antichrist) in this END TIME generation with the
testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ. This time he will stand with Elijah, who represents the prophets. The Law
and the Prophets will stand as a TESTIMONY against the world during the GREAT TRIBULATION period of
three and a half years.

The people of God were in Egypt, yet were UNTOUCHED by the plagues. This parallels the TRUMPET
judgments and VIAL judgments to be outpoured upon the earth in these last days.
Psalm 91:7. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
This is the provision for the believers of the Lord Jesus in the END TIME.
Jude 9. Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst
not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
Deuteronomy 34:5-6. So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word
of the LORD. And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over against Bethpeor: but no man knoweth
of his sepulchre unto this day.
God rose him from the dead. He appeared with Elijah on the mount of TRANSFIGURATION.
Moses was manifested at a time when the KING of the land ordered the slaying of ALL MALE BABES!
Exodus 1:22. And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river, and
every daughter ye shall save alive.
Exodus 2:1-10. And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a daughter of Levi. And the
woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months.
And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and
with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river‟s brink. And his sister stood afar off,
to wit what would be done to him. And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the river; and her
maidens walked along by the river‟s side; and when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch
it. And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him,
and said, This is one of the Hebrews‟ children. Then said his sister to Pharaoh‟s daughter, Shall I go and call to
thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee? And Pharaoh‟s daughter said to her,
Go. And the maid went and called the child‟s mother. And Pharaoh‟s daughter said unto her, Take this child
away, and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the woman took the child, and nursed it. And the
child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh‟s daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name
Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.
Matthew 21:14-22. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all
nations; and then shall the end come. When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by
Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in
Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his
house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with
child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the
sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time,
no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the
elect‟s sake those days shall be shortened.

ELIJAH. His manifestation came after a period of RAIN. His message was that there was NOT TO BE ANY
RAIN for the immediate forthcoming period of THREE AND A HALF YEARS.
James 5:17. Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain:
and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.
His message will the same in the END TIME.
He ran from Jezebel.
In the tribulation period he will again face a JEZEBEL SYSTEM. This time he will not run. Rather, he will
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 153

stand, and triumphantly overcome it!


2 Kings 9:30-33. And when Jehu was come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it; and she painted her face, and tired
her head, and looked out at a window. And as Jehu entered in at the gate, she said, Had Zimri peace, who slew
his master? And he lifted up his face to the window, and said, Who is on my side? who? And there looked out
to him two or three eunuchs. And he said, Throw her down. So they threw her down: and some of her blood
was sprinkled on the wall, and on the horses: and he trode her under foot.
This is a perfect parallel to the END TIME Jezebel system and prefigures the Babylonian fall.
Revelation 14:8. And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because
she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

A witness is a person who sees or knows by PERSONAL PRESENCE.


Matthew 20:20-23. Then came to him the mother of Zebedee‟s children with her sons, worshipping him, and
desiring a certain thing of him. And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these my
two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom. But Jesus answered and
said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the
baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able. And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink
indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on
my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.
This will be the ONLY WITNESS of God during the GREAT TRIBULATION period. These witnesses are
MEN. There is NO RESURRECTION for angelic beings. These men testifying of the Lord Jesus must of
necessity have PERSONALLY KNOWN the Lord to meet and demand of the definition of the word witness.
Their purpose is to OPEN THE EYES OF THE JEWS, to hew out a people for the Lord.
Zechariah 13:6. And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer,
Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.
This has been prefigured in the making known of JOSEPH TO HIS BRETHREN. It should be noted that during
this time, Joseph‟s wife was in the PALACE!
Genesis 45:1-8. Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that stood by him; and he cried, Cause
every man to go out from me. And there stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known unto his
brethren. And he wept aloud: and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh heard. And Joseph said unto his
brethren, I am Joseph; doth my father yet live? And his brethren could not answer him; for they were troubled at
his presence. And Joseph said unto his brethren, Come near to me, I pray you. And they came near. And he
said, I am Joseph your brother, whom ye sold into Egypt. Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with
yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life. For these two years hath the
famine been in the land: and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither be earing nor harvest. And
God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.
So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God: and he hath made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his
house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt.

The CANDLESTICK is the church.


Revelation 1:20. The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden
candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest
are the seven churches.

The GOLDEN BOWL is the Lord Jesus.

The ministry of the two witnesses is LOCALISED in Jerusalem. The bride of Christ has been taken out into the
WILDERNESS and with her, the GIFT OF PROPHECY, indeed all the gifts of the Spirit.

Three men in the Old Testament were TRANSLATED to heaven. They were Enoch, Moses and Elijah.

The GOLDEN OIL is the Holy Spirit.

The TWO OLIVE TREES are Moses and Elijah. One on the right side and the other on the left of the bowl.

SIGNS AND WONDERS BY THE BEAST. Revelation 13:11-15. And I beheld another beast coming up out
of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the
first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose
deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the
earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he
had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 154

to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the
beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of
the beast should be killed.

THE GREAT MYSTERY OF GOD IS COMPLETED. Revelation 10:7. But in the days of the voice of the
seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his
servants the prophets.

THE MESSAGE OF SALVATION TO THE GENTILES CONCLUDES

JUDGMENT IS AFFLICTED ON ECCLESIASTICAL BABYLON. Revelation 17. And there came one of the
seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee
the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have
committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full
of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet
colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of
abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY,
BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I
saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw
her, I wondered with great admiration. And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell
thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. The
beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they
that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of
the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. And here is the mind which hath wisdom.
The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen,
and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast
that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. And the ten horns which
thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the
beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall make war with
the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with
him are called, and chosen, and faithful. And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore
sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the
beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her
with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast,
until the words of God shall be fulfilled. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth
over the kings of the earth.

THE SEVEN VIALS OF GOD‟S WRATH ARE POURED OUT. Daniel 9:27. And he shall confirm the
covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to
cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and
that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

THE SEVEN VIALS. Revelation 16:2. THE FIRST VIAL. BOILS ON MEN. And the first went, and poured
out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the
beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.

THE SECOND VIAL. BLOOD ON THE SEA. Revelation 16:3. And the second angel poured out his vial
upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.

THE THIRD VIAL. BLOOD ON THE RIVERS. Revelation 16:4-7. And the third angel poured out his vial
upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou
art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus. For they have shed the
blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy. And I heard another
out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.

THE FOURTH VIAL. GREAT HEAT. Revelation 16:8-9. And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the
sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and
blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 155

THE FIFTH VIAL. DARKNESS. Revelation 16:10-11. And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat
of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, And blasphemed
the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.

THE SIXTH VIAL. THE EUHRATES DRIES UP. Revelation 16:12-16. And the sixth angel poured out his
vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east
might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of
the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working
miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that
great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments,
lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew
tongue Armageddon.

THE SEVENTH VIAL. VOICES, HAIL, AND EARTHQUAKE. Revelation 16:17-21. And the seventh angel
poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne,
saying, It is done. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such
as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city was
divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God,
to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. And every island fled away, and the
mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of
a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST. Revelation 19:11. And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white
horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
Jude 14-15. And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh
with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among
them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which
ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
Luke 17:26-30. And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat,
they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the
flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they
bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and
brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is
revealed.

THE ANTICHRIST. 1 John 2:18,19,22; 4:3. Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that
antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. They went
out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us:
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of
antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
2 John 7. For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh.
This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
2 Thessalonians 2:1-12. Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our
gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word,
nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day
shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth
in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told
you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of
iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall
that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the
brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and
lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not
the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they
should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in
unrighteousness.

The TEMPLE OF GOD is now the human body of the born again believer.
1 Corinthians 6:19. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 156

ye have of God, and ye are not your own?


2 Corinthians 6:16. And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living
God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my
people.
1 Corinthians 3:16-17. Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
John 2:19-21. Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then
said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? But he
spake of the temple of his body.
Ephesians 2:19-22. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints,
and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ
himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy
temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
The same writer, Paul, who emphatically declares that the Christian‟s body is the temple of the Holy Ghost,
states that the antichrist will sit in this temple showing that he is God!
Galatians 2:18. For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor.
The NATURAL temple of worship in Jerusalem was destroyed in AD 70 by Titus, son of the Roman Emperor,
Vespasian. In the economy of God, that temple will not be built again. Should men build it, God will not
accept either it, or any of its associated religious practices or animal sacrifices. God will not build again what he
has destroyed. Man may endeavour to do so. God will not.

Ever since the fall of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden, God has desired to DWELL WITH MAN in a
personal and intimate manner. His plan unfolded in three distinct areas. Each area was greater that the former.
Each stage was progressively realising the fulfillment of God‟s goal.
The first stage was the portable TABERNACLE OF MOSES. The second, was the permanent TEMPLE OF
SOLOMON. The third, the HUMAN BODY.
God will never reverse the order or revert to a former structure.
Man-made temples are finished in the sight of God!
The ultimate plan of God will come to fruition in the millennium and the world made new.
Revelation 21:3. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men,
and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

The ANTICHRIST and FALSE PROPHETS are said to GO OUT FROM US, that is, the church.
Matthew 24:24. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders;
insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
2 Peter 2:1. But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among
you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon
themselves swift destruction.
1 Corinthians 11:18-19. For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions
among you; and I partly believe it. For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved
may be made manifest among you.
Daniel 7 & 8 reveal the antichrist. His is shown here as the LITTLE HORN. These visions were ultimately for
the last days.
Daniel 7:8,20,21,24-26; 8:9-12,23-25. I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another
little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn
were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things. And of the ten horns that were in his head,
and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that
spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. I beheld, and the same horn made war
with the saints, and prevailed against them; And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise:
and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. And he
shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to
change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.
And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the
east, and toward the pleasant land. And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the
host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them. Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the
host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down. And an host
was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground;
and it practised, and prospered. And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the
full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. And his power shall be
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 157

mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall
destroy the mighty and the holy people. And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand;
and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the
Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.
The NEW TESTAMENT parallel is seen in Revelation 13:1-10. And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw
a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his
heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet
of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great
authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all
the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they
worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was
given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty
and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his
tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to
overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon
the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the
foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into
captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the
saints.

THE ANTI-TRINITY. This comprises the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet. In each aspect this trinity
duplicates the Godhead.
The DRAGON, the source of power and great authority, patterns the Father God.
The BEAST, the central, number one, is the negative of the Lord Jesus. It is the beast that is manifested in
human flesh, as was Jesus. He is associated with the triple numeral, 666. Jesus in the Greek language has a
numeral value of 888. 6 is the number of fallen man, 3 is the perfection of testimony.
This shows that the beast will be the perfect example of man in his fallen state, totally depraved. On the other
hand, however, 3 x 8 reveals the Lord Jesus in eternal, resurrection power.
It is important to observe that as the Lord Jesus, the divine Son of the Living God, anointed with the Holy Spirit
by his Father, had a public ministry of 3 ½ YEARS! The beast, empowered by the dragon, (Satan himself), will
also have a ministry for exactly the same period of time! No more. No less.
The OTHER BEAST, a ram lamb, influences people to worship the beast. It is religious. This is the function of
the Holy Spirit. To cause people to worship the Lord Jesus Christ.
Revelation 13:11. And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and
he spake as a dragon.
This is typified in Daniel.
Daniel 8:3. Then I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and, behold, there stood before the river a ram which had two
horns: and the two horns were high; but one was higher than the other, and the higher came up last.

The TWO HORNS (power) were like that of a lamb.


Revelation 13:12. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them
which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
Causing to worship indicated the RELIGIOUS NATURE of this beast.
Revelation 13:13. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in
the sight of men.
This is a replica of the ministry of Elijah to prophet of God. Here the second beast has a similar function of a
prophet.

THE NAMES AND CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ANTICHRIST. In many cases the name of a person or
place, reveals its nature. The scriptures clearly teach that in the last days a personality will arise who will be the
embodiment of all evil. This will be the devil in human form, in human flesh. It will be Satan incarnate. This
person is identified by various names that reveal who HE IS, where he COMES FROM, and what HE WILL
DO.

He is shown to be the ANTICHRIST.


This word is derived from two Greek words. The first is anti, meaning IN THE STEAD OF, IN THE PLACE
OF. The second is christ, which means ANOINTED. This personage will put himself forward as Christ. He
will seek to take the place of Christ.

THE SON OF PERDITION. The only other person in the Bible called by this name is Judas Iscariot, the
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 158

BETRAYER, the thief. This is a very significant aspect.

THE MAN OF SIN or, Sin‟s Man! As the Lord Jesus Christ was the man of God or, God‟s man, the
embodiment of Deity, so the Antichrist will be the embodiment of sin in all its fulness.
Colossians 2:9. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
As the GODHEAD found its complete expression bodily in Jesus Christ, sin in the same manner will find its
complete expression bodily in the man of sin, the ANTICHRIST.

THE WICKED ONE. Another translation for this is the LAWLESS ONE. He will be subject neither to the
laws of God nor man. He will instigate a reign of lawlessness. He will head up a great apostasy.

THE DECEIVER. Through lying signs and wonders, through false miracles, he will bring about THE
GREATEST RELIGIOUS DECEPTION in the history of the Christian Church! Because men reject the truths
of the Lord God, they will be ensnared by the deception.
2 Thessalonians 2:10-12. And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they
received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong
delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had
pleasure in unrighteousness.
This is clearly illustrated in 1 Kings 22:1-38. And they continued three years without war between Syria and
Israel. And it came to pass in the third year, that Jehoshaphat the king of Judah came down to the king of Israel.
And the king of Israel said unto his servants, Know ye that Ramoth in Gilead is ours, and we be still, and take it
not out of the hand of the king of Syria? And he said unto Jehoshaphat, Wilt thou go with me to battle to
Ramothgilead? And Jehoshaphat said to the king of Israel, I am as thou art, my people as thy people, my horses
as thy horses. And Jehoshaphat said unto the king of Israel, Enquire, I pray thee, at the word of the LORD to
day. Then the king of Israel gathered the prophets together, about four hundred men, and said unto them, Shall I
go against Ramothgilead to battle, or shall I forbear? And they said, Go up; for the Lord shall deliver it into the
hand of the king. And Jehoshaphat said, Is there not here a prophet of the LORD besides, that we might enquire
of him? And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, There is yet one man, Micaiah the son of Imlah, by whom
we may enquire of the LORD: but I hate him; for he doth not prophesy good concerning me, but evil. And
Jehoshaphat said, Let not the king say so. Then the king of Israel called an officer, and said, Hasten hither
Micaiah the son of Imlah. And the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah sat each on his throne,
having put on their robes, in a void place in the entrance of the gate of Samaria; and all the prophets prophesied
before them. And Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah made him horns of iron: and he said, Thus saith the LORD,
With these shalt thou push the Syrians, until thou have consumed them. And all the prophets prophesied so,
saying, Go up to Ramothgilead, and prosper: for the LORD shall deliver it into the king‟s hand. And the
messenger that was gone to call Micaiah spake unto him, saying, Behold now, the words of the prophets declare
good unto the king with one mouth: let thy word, I pray thee, be like the word of one of them, and speak that
which is good. And Micaiah said, As the LORD liveth, what the LORD saith unto me, that will I speak. So he
came to the king. And the king said unto him, Micaiah, shall we go against Ramothgilead to battle, or shall we
forbear? And he answered him, Go, and prosper: for the LORD shall deliver it into the hand of the king. And
the king said unto him, How many times shall I adjure thee that thou tell me nothing but that which is true in the
name of the LORD? And he said, I saw all Israel scattered upon the hills, as sheep that have not a shepherd: and
the LORD said, These have no master: let them return every man to his house in peace. And the king of Israel
said unto Jehoshaphat, Did I not tell thee that he would prophesy no good concerning me, but evil? And he said,
Hear thou therefore the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven
standing by him on his right hand and on his left. And the LORD said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may
go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner. And there came
forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him. And the LORD said unto him,
Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said,
Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so. Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a
lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee. But
Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah went near, and smote Micaiah on the cheek, and said, Which way went the
Spirit of the LORD from me to speak unto thee? And Micaiah said, Behold, thou shalt see in that day, when
thou shalt go into an inner chamber to hide thyself. And the king of Israel said, Take Micaiah, and carry him
back unto Amon the governor of the city, and to Joash the king‟s son; And say, Thus saith the king, Put this
fellow in the prison, and feed him with bread of affliction and with water of affliction, until I come in peace.
And Micaiah said, If thou return at all in peace, the LORD hath not spoken by me. And he said, Hearken, O
people, every one of you. So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah went up to Ramothgilead.
And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, I will disguise myself, and enter into the battle; but put thou on thy
robes. And the king of Israel disguised himself, and went into the battle. But the king of Syria commanded his
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 159

thirty and two captains that had rule over his chariots, saying, Fight neither with small nor great, save only with
the king of Israel. And it came to pass, when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, that they said, Surely
it is the king of Israel. And they turned aside to fight against him: and Jehoshaphat cried out. And it came to
pass, when the captains of the chariots perceived that it was not the king of Israel, that they turned back from
pursuing him. And a certain man drew a bow at a venture, and smote the king of Israel between the joints of the
harness: wherefore he said unto the driver of his chariot, Turn thine hand, and carry me out of the host; for I am
wounded. And the battle increased that day: and the king was stayed up in his chariot against the Syrians, and
died at even: and the blood ran out of the wound into the midst of the chariot. And there went a proclamation
throughout the host about the going down of the sun, saying, Every man to his city, and every man to his own
country. So the king died, and was brought to Samaria; and they buried the king in Samaria. And one washed
the chariot in the pool of Samaria; and the dogs licked up his blood; and they washed his armour; according unto
the word of the LORD which he spake.

THE BEAST. As the Lord Jesus Christ was the Lamb of God, the man from heaven, the spotless one. The
Antichrist is the beast from hell, and has the spots of the leopard.
Revelation 17:8. The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go
into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life
from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
Revelation 13:2. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and
his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

The Antichrist is FIRST FORESHADOWED in Genesis 3:15. And I will put enmity between thee and the
woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
The SEED OF THE SERPENT develops throughout the entire body of the scriptures, and is manifested in full
maturity in the end of the age as the Antichrist.
Genesis 15:9. And he said unto him, Take me an heifer of three years old, and a she goat of three years old, and
a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon.
This instruction was given to Abraham in answer to his question at how he was to know he would inherit the
land.

3 + 3 = 6
3 + 3 = 6 = 666
3 + 3 = 6

Genesis 15:9, 10. And he said unto him, Take me an heifer of three years old, and a she goat of three years old, and a ram of
three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon. And he took unto him all these, and divided them in the midst, and laid
each piece one against another: but the birds divided he not.

The CANDLESTICK is the symbol of the church.

Revelation 13:8. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the
number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
There are SIX WORDS in the New Testament that have this numerical value.
Matthew 8:25. And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.
Matthew 15:3. But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by
your tradition?
This word occurs THIRTEEN times in the New Testament!
John 19:34. But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.
John 21:6. And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast
therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.

Acts 19:25. Whom he called together with the workmen of like occupation, and said, Sirs, ye know that by this
craft we have our wealth.
1 Peter 1:1. Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia,
Asia, and Bithynia,

KING SOLOMON FELL after receiving SIX HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SIX TALENTS OF GOLD!
1 Kings 10:14. Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred threescore and six
talents of gold.

Daniel 3:1,5. Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and the
breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon. hat at what time ye hear
the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and
worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up:
The image created was in the LIKENESS of the world ruler. This prefigures the image that is to be set up in
this day.
Revelation 13:14-15. And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had
power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to
the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the
beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of
the beast should be killed.

The Greek for 666 is:

600 60 6

These are the Greek numerals for 666. Note the symbols used; the cross and the serpent.

Christos, the anointed one, the anointed serpent.

The following TYPES OF THE ANTICHRIST reveal a pattern formed in Genesis, culminating in the Book of
Revelation.

According to JEWISH TRADITION, Satan was one of TWELVE prince angels. He was next to the throne of
God.
Ezekiel 28:14. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy
mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
SATAN desired the throne of God.
Isaiah 14:12-14. How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the
ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt
my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I
will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
Satan fell, and took a host of angelic beings with him.
Luke 10:18. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
2 Corinthians 11:14. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Revelation 9:1-3. And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was
given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as
the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there
came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth
have power.
TWELVE generations after Adam through Ham comes Nimrod. This name means, rebel. It was Nimrod who
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 161

conceived the idea of building the TOWER OF BABEL, with the resultant confusion of tongues. His purpose
was to RULE there. It was man‟s first attempt at ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT.
Genesis 10:8-12. And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. He was a mighty hunter
before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD. And the beginning
of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. Out of that land went forth
Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah, And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the
same is a great city.
NIMROD was a mighty city builder.

NINEVEH, the capital of the Assyrian Empire had 1,500 towers, and a protective outer wall of 60 miles
circumference.
The first attempt at a ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT was by this mighty hunter.
Genesis 11:1-9. And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they
journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to
another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for
mortar. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us
make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see
the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and
they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they
have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand
one another‟s speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they
left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the
language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

Nimrod‟s wife, SEMARIMIS was known as the “Queen of Heaven”. Their son, TAMMUZ, was heralded as
the promised seed – the Messiah. This was the beginning of the BABYLONIAN MYSTERIES. In Canaan, the
mother and child were known as ASHTOROTH and BAAL. In Egypt, ISIS and HORUS. In Greece,
APHRODITE and EROS. In Rome, VENUS and CUPID.
In brick edifice, known as the TOWER OF BABEL was 1,140 feet high. It was completed, as the scripture
declares, with the heavens, or the SIGNS OF THE ZODIAC. The words, MAY REACH, in verse 4, do not
appear in the original text. The verse states literally that the tower was COMPLETED WITH THE HEAVENS.
The Assyrian Empire endured for 666 years until the Babylonians conquered it. The goal of Nimrod and his
followers was world conquest, WORLD GOVERNMENT, and a one world religion. They already had one
language and one purpose. It was because of this that the Lord came down and put his foot upon it. He
declared, because of this unity in mind and purpose nothing shall be impossible to them.

BABYLON with an area of 150 square miles, and an outer wall of 100 feet high, and 30 feet thick, was built on
the former site of the tower of Babel. Nebuchadnezzar was its first great leader. He was who erected a golden
IMAGE in the plain of Dura. The events portrayed here are a pattern for what is to soon transpire on the earth.
Daniel 3:1-7. Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and the
breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon. Then Nebuchadnezzar
the king sent to gather together the princes, the governors, and the captains, the judges, the treasurers, the
counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which
Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up. Then the princes, the governors, and captains, the judges, the treasurers,
the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, were gathered together unto the dedication of the
image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up; and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set
up. Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages, That at what time
ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down
and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up: And whoso falleth not down and
worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. Therefore at that time, when
all the people heard the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of musick, all the people,
the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had
set up.
The image was 60 cubits high, was 6 cubits across, and at its base 6 types of instruments playing music. That is,
6 + 6 + 6. This becomes a picture of the events of the image set up by the beast involving WORLD WIDE
allegiance and WORSHIP.
Revelation 13:14-15. And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had
power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to
the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the
beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of

the beast should be killed.


Babylon in turn was to FALL
Her destruction was prophesied 240 years prior to its execution.
Isaiah 13:19-22. And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees‟ excellency, shall be as when
God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to
generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there. But wild
beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there,
and satyrs shall dance there. And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons in
their pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.

THE WALLS of the city were so massive that thirteen years were required for Nebuchadnezzar to penetrate
them.
These Scriptures were fulfilled at the hand of Darius the Mede, who was to rule over the Medio-Persian Empire.
Alexander the Great headed the rise of Greece in 336 BC. Julius Caesar, was the deification of himself and the
commencement of Emperor worship. The title Pontifex Maximus, a title that came from the Babylonian
Mysteries, was bestowed upon him.
The Roman Empire held the city of Jerusalem for 666 years. The conspiracy, or the mystery of iniquity will
reach its zenith in the manifestation of the man of sin, the ANTICHRIST, during the Great Tribulation period of
three and a half years.
Genesis 15:16. But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not
yet full.
Revelation 14:18. And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud
cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the
earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.
In other words the iniquity is come to the full. It is the time of the end.
Revelation 17:5-6. And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE
MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the
blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great
admiration.
What would cause John to wonder? One thing would be the staggering fact that this woman, in the fulness of
time, is composed of ALL WORLD RELIGIONS, not just the husks of Christianity!
The EU, also known as the treaty of Rome, was signed in Rome in 1957.

The SEVEN HILLS are seven mountains where the whore sitteth.
Revelation 17:9-10. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which
the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and
when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
FIVE ARE FALLEN. These are Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medio-Persia, and Greece.
One is Rome.
THE ONE THAT IS TO COME is the ten world kingdom over which the Antichrist shall rule. (The ENTIRE
WORLD will be divided into ten powers. The Club of Rome has already divided the nations of the earth into
ten sections.)

THE ANTICHRISTAL KINGDOM will be the EIGHTH! He will assume total control of the earth. Hitler will
look like a perfect little gentleman by comparison.
Revelation 17:9-13. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which
the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and
when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is
of the seven, and goeth into perdition. And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received
no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give
their power and strength unto the beast.
The image of the beast could be a highly sophisticated COMPUTER with power of speech.

With the introduction of the NEW MONETARY SYSTEM every human being will be assigned and 18 digit
number (6 + 6 + 6) which will be impressed on the skin of the forehead or the right hand. This will be
administered by laser and will be invisible to the human eye. It will become illuminated when the person is
subjected to infra-red light. Instant information is this manner can be given on any individual anywhere on the
earth.
The new monetary system will function with SDRs (Special Drawing Rights), and each human being will be
their own personalised computer bank account!

This action will eliminate forgeries, robberies, cheque books and cash. In this respect it will be a great boon.
However, the privacy of the individual will be gone forever.
The ultimate intention of this system is to ENFORCE the worship of Satan. There will be no escape.
The receiving of the mark will be the last step in the chain from cash, to cheque, to bank cards, to personal
numbering.
The final mark will be taken in the possession of one‟s full faculties, and is sealed in the UNPARDONABLE
SIN in the worship of the beast.
2 Corinthians 11:2-4. For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband,
that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve
through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that
cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not
received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
ESAU is the TWELTH after Noah (thirteen including Noah).
He was rejected because he sold his birthright. Jacob replaced him.
1 Chronicles 1:24-28. Shem, Arphaxad, Shelah, Eber, Peleg, Reu, Serug, Nahor, Terah, Abram; the same is
Abraham. The sons of Abraham; Isaac, and Ishmael.

JACOB had TWELVE sons. Reuben, one of the twelve, desired his father‟s couch and consequently looses his
birthright. HE FELL.
Genesis 35:22. And it came to pass, when Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his
father‟s concubine: and Israel heard it. Now the sons of Jacob were twelve:
Genesis 49:3-4. Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of
dignity, and the excellency of power: Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy
father‟s bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.

THE REBELLION OF KORAH, DATHAN AND ABIRAM. Numbers 16:1-35. Now Korah, the son of Izhar,
the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, and Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of Peleth, sons of
Reuben, took men: And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty
princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation, men of renown: And they gathered themselves together
against Moses and against Aaron, and said unto them, Ye take too much upon you, seeing all the congregation
are holy, every one of them, and the LORD is among them: wherefore then lift ye up yourselves above the
congregation of the LORD? And when Moses heard it, he fell upon his face: And he spake unto Korah and
unto all his company, saying, Even to morrow the LORD will shew who are his, and who is holy; and will cause
him to come near unto him: even him whom he hath chosen will he cause to come near unto him. This do; Take
you censers, Korah, and all his company; And put fire therein, and put incense in them before the LORD to
morrow: and it shall be that the man whom the LORD doth choose, he shall be holy: ye take too much upon
you, ye sons of Levi. And Moses said unto Korah, Hear, I pray you, ye sons of Levi: Seemeth it but a small
thing unto you, that the God of Israel hath separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to
himself to do the service of the tabernacle of the LORD, and to stand before the congregation to minister unto
them? And he hath brought thee near to him, and all thy brethren the sons of Levi with thee: and seek ye the
priesthood also? For which cause both thou and all thy company are gathered together against the LORD: and
what is Aaron, that ye murmur against him? And Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab:
which said, We will not come up: Is it a small thing that thou hast brought us up out of a land that floweth with
milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, except thou make thyself altogether a prince over us? Moreover
thou hast not brought us into a land that floweth with milk and honey, or given us inheritance of fields and
vineyards: wilt thou put out the eyes of these men? we will not come up. And Moses was very wroth, and said
unto the LORD, Respect not thou their offering: I have not taken one ass from them, neither have I hurt one of
them. And Moses said unto Korah, Be thou and all thy company before the LORD, thou, and they, and Aaron,
to morrow: And take every man his censer, and put incense in them, and bring ye before the LORD every man
his censer, two hundred and fifty censers; thou also, and Aaron, each of you his censer. And they took every
man his censer, and put fire in them, and laid incense thereon, and stood in the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation with Moses and Aaron. And Korah gathered all the congregation against them unto the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation: and the glory of the LORD appeared unto all the congregation. And the LORD
spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may
consume them in a moment. And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh,
shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth with all the congregation? And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the congregation, saying, Get you up from about the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram. And
Moses rose up and went unto Dathan and Abiram; and the elders of Israel followed him. And he spake unto the
congregation, saying, Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of theirs, lest ye
be consumed in all their sins. So they gat up from the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, on every side:
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 164

and Dathan and Abiram came out, and stood in the door of their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and their
little children. And Moses said, Hereby ye shall know that the LORD hath sent me to do all these works; for I
have not done them of mine own mind. If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be visited after
the visitation of all men; then the LORD hath not sent me. But if the LORD make a new thing, and the earth
open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they go down quick into the pit;
then ye shall understand that these men have provoked the LORD. And it came to pass, as he had made an end
of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them: And the earth opened her
mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their
goods. They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and
they perished from among the congregation. And all Israel that were round about them fled at the cry of them:
for they said, Lest the earth swallow us up also. And there came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the
two hundred and fifty men that offered incense.
Numbers 26:9-10. And the sons of Eliab; Nemuel, and Dathan, and Abiram. This is that Dathan and Abiram,
which were famous in the congregation, who strove against Moses and against Aaron in the company of Korah,
when they strove against the LORD: And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up together with
Korah, when that company died, what time the fire devoured two hundred and fifty men: and they became a
sign.
These three men are the THIRTEENTH generation from Eber, the father of the Hebrews: Korah, the Levi,
Dathan and Abiram, through Reuben.
1 Chronicles 6:37-38. The son of Tahath, the son of Assir, the son of Ebiasaph, the son of Korah, The son of
Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, the son of Israel.
1 Chronicles 1:25,28. Eber, Peleg, Reu, The sons of Abraham; Isaac, and Ishmael.
Numbers 25:6-9. Of Hezron, the family of the Hezronites: of Carmi, the family of the Carmites. These are the
families of the Reubenites: and they that were numbered of them were forty and three thousand and seven
hundred and thirty. And the sons of Pallu; Eliab. And the sons of Eliab; Nemuel, and Dathan, and Abiram. This
is that Dathan and Abiram, which were famous in the congregation, who strove against Moses and against
Aaron in the company of Korah, when they strove against the LORD:

MANASSEH. 2 Kings 21:1-16. Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and reigned fifty and
five years in Jerusalem. And his mother‟s name was Hephzibah. And he did that which was evil in the sight of
the LORD, after the abominations of the heathen, whom the LORD cast out before the children of Israel. For he
built up again the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed; and he reared up altars for Baal, and
made a grove, as did Ahab king of Israel; and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them. And he built
altars in the house of the LORD, of which the LORD said, In Jerusalem will I put my name. And he built altars
for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the LORD. And he made his son pass through the
fire, and observed times, and used enchantments, and dealt with familiar spirits and wizards: he wrought much
wickedness in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger. And he set a graven image of the grove that he
had made in the house, of which the LORD said to David, and to Solomon his son, In this house, and in
Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all tribes of Israel, will I put my name for ever: Neither will I make the
feet of Israel move any more out of the land which I gave their fathers; only if they will observe to do according
to all that I have commanded them, and according to all the law that my servant Moses commanded them. But
they hearkened not: and Manasseh seduced them to do more evil than did the nations whom the LORD
destroyed before the children of Israel. And the LORD spake by his servants the prophets, saying, Because
Manasseh king of Judah hath done these abominations, and hath done wickedly above all that the Amorites did,
which were before him, and hath made Judah also to sin with his idols: Therefore thus saith the LORD God of
Israel, Behold, I am bringing such evil upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whosoever heareth of it, both his ears
shall tingle. And I will stretch over Jerusalem the line of Samaria, and the plummet of the house of Ahab: and I
will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping it, and turning it upside down. And I will forsake the
remnant of mine inheritance, and deliver them into the hand of their enemies; and they shall become a prey and
a spoil to all their enemies; Because they have done that which was evil in my sight, and have provoked me to
anger, since the day their fathers came forth out of Egypt, even unto this day. Moreover Manasseh shed
innocent blood very much, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another; beside his sin wherewith he
made Judah to sin, in doing that which was evil in the sight of the LORD.
Manasseh was twelve years old when he began his reign, that is, he was in his thirteenth year. He was the
THIRTEENTH king over Judah, after the division of the united kingdom. Manasseh is the king who SET UP
THE IMAGE IN THE TEMPLE OF GOD to be worshipped.
1 Chronicles 3:10-13. And Solomon‟s son was Rehoboam, Abia his son, Asa his son, Jehoshaphat his son,
Joram his son, Ahaziah his son, Joash his son, Amaziah his son, Azariah his son, Jotham his son, Ahaz his son,
Hezekiah his son, Manasseh his son,

JUDAS. Matthew 10:1-4. And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against
unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. Now the names
of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of
Zebedee, and John his brother; Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of
Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also
betrayed him.
Judas is the number TWELVE, and also, including the Lord Jesus, number thirteen.
John 6:70. Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?
Acts 1:25. That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that
he might go to his own place.
John 13:2. And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon‟s son, to
betray him;
John 13:27. And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.
Luke 22:3. Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.
Judas prefigures the ANTICHRIST, who will be one of the END TIME TWELVE APOSTLES who will
BETRAY and sell out the bride of Christ.
JUDAS was one of the CHOSEN TWELVE.
His fall took place in the JEWISH nation.
He came from the same tribes as that of the Lord Jesus, JUDAH.
Judah means PRAISE!

THE FULFILLMENT. Revelation 12:1-4. And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed
with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child
cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold
a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the
third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which
was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
Revelation 9:1-3. And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was
given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as
the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there
came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth
have power.
Revelation 8:9-11. And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third
part of the ships were destroyed. And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning
as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of
the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the
waters, because they were made bitter.

The WOMAN, the bride of Christ, is shown crowned with TWELVE stars. In the two preceding sections of
scripture, a star falls from heaven and becomes filled with Satanic power. In Revelation 12, one third of the
stars of heaven, fall with this star. STARS are symbols of the blood washed, spirit filled saints of God. This is
the great falling away referred to in 2 Thessalonians 2:3. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day
shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Acts 17:24. God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth
not in temples made with hands;
Matthew 7:15-20. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep‟s clothing, but inwardly they are
ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even
so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring
forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is
hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
2 Corinthians 11:13-15. For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the
apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no
great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according
to their works.

THE FINAL OVERTHROW OF SATAN.

Satan is to be cast from heaven to the earth.


Revelation 12:9. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which
deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 166

This event occurs at the BEGINNING of the great tribulation period. The casting down is achieved as the
manifestation of Michael‟s victory over Satan. The war that transpires in heaven is caused by the arrival of the
MANCHILD. Satan will not be cast from heaven until the BIRTH and TRANSLATION of the manchild. The
manchild is the offspring of the union of Christ and his church. The Lord Jesus will not wed a bride inferior to
himself. He therefore, will lift his prospective wife to a state of coequality with himself. The picture of this
perfection, or MATURITY is seen in Revelation 12:1. And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman
clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
It is of vital importance to understand that this woman does not appear until the VEIL OF THE TEMPLE OF
GOD is opened and the ARK OF HIS TESTAMENT is seen. This opening of the temple is yet future. Its
happening is the same time of the DAY OF ATONEMENT to the church. The woman, that is the END TIME
CHURCH, is shown to be impregnated with the GLORY OF GOD! The glory of God the Father, the glory of
God the Son, and the glory of God the Holy Ghost.
Psalm 45:13. The king‟s daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold.
The Lord Jesus‟ union with his bride will not be unfruitful!
That union will produce the manchild!
Satan will only be cast from heaven when he is expelled as Michael‟s manifested victory over him. It is the
ARRIVAL OF THE MANCHILD that precipitated this great WAR IN HEAVEN. This battle will never occur
until the manchild arrives in heaven. The manchild will never be born and translated to heaven until the
MARRIAGE of the Lamb. The marriage will not transpire until the church has attained MATURITY. The
church will not attain maturity without the FIVE FOLD ASCENSION gift ministry!
Ephesians 4:11-13. And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors
and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of
Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man,
unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:
The dragon failed in his attempt to devour the manchild as soon as it was born, for it was CAUGHT UP to God
and His throne. The Bride, the mother of the manchild is also preserved from the dragon‟s attack, as she is
shown to be lifted to a place of safety on EAGLES WINGS. The dragon, now extremely wrath with the woman,
prepares his final onslaught against the REMNANT OF HER SEED. In this theatre, he is totally successful!
Revelation 13:7. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was
given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
The Devil therefore, having a measure of knowledge of the perfection that is to come to the church, will hurl
every weapon in his arsenal at the FIVE FOLD MINISTRY. It is by them that perfection will be achieved.
It is little wonder therefore, that ministers by the hundreds are being ATTACKED as never before, and many,
falling by the wayside, are vacating pulpits never to return. This onslaught is engineered and launched by the
Devil himself, in order to bring the church to naught. Though he is experiencing a measure of success, the final
outcome will end in total disaster for him!

SECONDLY, Satan is to be CAST INTO THE BOTTOMLESS PIT.


Revelation 20:1-3. And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a
great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and
bound him a thousand years, 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.
At the commencement of the millennium, the thousand year reign of Christ, Satan is cast out of the earth into
the bottomless pit. There will be no sin, sickness, disease, death, or even the devil on earth during this period of
time.

THIRDLY, the final overthrow of Satan is seen in Revelation 20:10. 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.
At the end of the millennium, Satan and the ungodly dead are raised. In a desperate, last ditch effort, the age old
enemy of God and man launches his major offensive. It is at this point Satan is FINALLY OVERTHROWN
FOR ETERNITY!
Revelation 20:9. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and
the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
Revelation 21:1,4. And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed
away; and there was no more sea. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more
death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

THE MANCHILD.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 167

As with many of the great truths of God, so it is with this teaching. It is seen in THREE increasing progressive
aspects.

MOSES is the MANCHILD in regard to the TABERNACLE. His life was sought by the devil, through the then
current world ruler, PHARAOH.

Exodus 1:15-19. And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of which the name of the one was
Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah: And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew
women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a son, then ye shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall
live. But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men
children alive. And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said unto them, Why have ye done this thing,
and have saved the men children alive? And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are
not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered ere the midwives come in unto them.
Moses was a DELIVERER. In this instance he delivers the People of God from Egyptian bondage.

The LORD JESUS is the MANCHILD in connection with the TEMPLE.


His life was sought by the devil, through then authority of the land, HEROD.
Matthew 2:16. Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent
forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and
under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.
Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from TWO YEARS OLD AND UNDER, according to the time which
he had diligently enquired of the wise men.
Jesus was a DELIVERER. He delivers all who will come to him from sin, bondage and corruption. He is the
Saviour of the world.
Matthew 1:21. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people
from their sins.

The MANCHILD of Revelation 12 is the MANCHILD in regard to the CHURCH of the living God. His life
will be sought by the DEVIL.
Revelation 12:1-6. And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon
under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth,
and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon,
having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the
stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be
delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all
nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. And the woman fled into
the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred
and threescore days.
Pharaoh‟s diabolical purpose came to naught. Herod‟s intention failed. The devil himself will likewise
experience a similar defeat.
The purpose of all MENCHILDREN was DELIVERERS, and as such prepared a way for the people of God.
The manchild then, will be the DELIVERER of the church of the END TIME!
He will CLEANSE THE HEAVENS of Satan and his evil horde of followers. His arrival in heaven is the object
of the precipitation of the WAR between Michael and the dragon.

The CASTING DOWN OF SATAN is the final and complete fulfillment of the first prophecy of the Bible.
Genesis 3:15. And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall
bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
As a woman was instrumental in the fall of mankind, so also will a woman be involved in the final overthrow of
Satan. The end time church (the woman), will bring forth a seed that will inflict a crushing blow to the head of
the Devil (the serpent). THE VERY VICTORY OF HEAVEN WILL PROVE TO BE THE WOE OF THE
EARTH! The manifestation of the Devil as the antichrist, and his reign of terror for the last three and a half
years of time, will occur in the great tribulation period.
Revelation 12:10,12. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the
kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused
them before our God day and night. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the
inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he
knoweth that he hath but a short time.
The time of this cataclysmic event is at the BEGINNING of the great tribulation period. It is the same period of
time that is alluded to in the above scripture as a short time. This duration is three and a half years!
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 168

It is at this time the BRIDE OF THE LORD JESUS is taken out on eagle wing power. She is PROTECTED
from the face of the serpent for the time of the great tribulation of three and a half years.
Revelation 12:14. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the
wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the
serpent.
This event is prefigured in the Old Testament.
Exodus 19:1-6. In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the
same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai. For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the
desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel camped before the mount. And Moses went
up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of
Jacob, and tell the children of Israel; Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles‟
wings, and brought you unto myself. Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant,
then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me
a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
Eagle wing power symbolizes the might of the HOLY SPIRIT. It speaks of covering, protection, provision,
leading, guiding, and delivering.
The eagle is also typical of GOD THE FATHER.
Deuteronomy 32:11-12. As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings,
taketh them, beareth them on her wings: So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with
him.
Luke 17:37. And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the
body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.
The same Holy Spirit that delivered the people of God out of Egypt, is the same Holy Spirit that will lead his
people of the end time to a place of protection and provision in God, during the great tribulation period.
God provided for the children of Israel in the wilderness. He fed them there. So also did he feed and provide
for Elijah. Again, so will he protect and feed the bride of Christ in the last days.

THE MYSTERY OF INIQUITY. That an elite team of men have desired domination of the world for a long
period of time, is not unfamiliar knowledge. The intriguing thing about this is the fact that various sections, of
these desires are interrelated, oftentimes unbeknown to them. This is proof that the various sections, over many
centuries are linked together by some force, some spirit, some MASTER MIND.

CONSPIRACIES to rule the world are not some modern innovation. The desire of Nimrod to conquer the
nations was realised many centuries ago. He it was, who built the Tower of Babel at Babylon.

The word CONSPIRACY is derived from the Latin word, conspirare. It means to blow together. From con,
together and spirare, to blow, or the breathe. The word carries the connotation, to commit crime, to plot, to
hatch treason.
The word treason means to betray. It has reference to the crime of a subject attempting in any way to overthrow
the government of a country. It appears that treason is the order of the day.
The first crime committed on this restored earth was that of our first parents, Adam and Eve. The crime they
committed was treason. It was a crime, God said, that was to be punishable by DEATH.
Adam and Eve, in falling to the temptation of the master mind, were the instruments through which the first
conspiracy to overthrow the government of the earth were used.
The MYSTERY OF INIQUITY began on the earth in the garden of Eden.
Today‟s conspirators are motivated by the same spirit.
They are motivated by selfishness, greed and the power to control other lives.
Ephesians 6:12. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against
the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
2 Thessalonians 2:7. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be
taken out of the way.
Ephesians 2:2. Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of
the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
Genesis 15:16. But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not
yet full.
Revelation 14:15. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the
cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
Genesis 6:11-13. The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God
looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God
said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and,
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 169

behold, I will destroy them with the earth.


The judgment of Noah‟s flood was largely due to VIOLENCE.
The Lord Jesus predicted that in the last days there would again be a major increase in this activity.
Matthew 24:37. But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Again, the Apostle Paul, speaking by the same Holy Spirit declares that in the last days LAWLESSNESS,
anarchy and a disrespect for authority would come.
2 Timothy 3:1-5. This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of
their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without
natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors,
heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the
power thereof: from such turn away.

God also lists the progression of the TOTAL DEPRAVITY of man. The MYSTERY OF INIQUITY
(LAWLESSNESS), is to come to the full in these last days.
Romans 1:21-23. Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but
became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they
became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and
to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through
the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God
into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For
this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that
which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust
one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that
recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God
gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all
unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit,
malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things,
disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable,
unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not
only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

THE TIMES OF THE GENTILES


Daniel 2:31-45. Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was
excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible. This image‟s head was of fine gold, his breast
and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron
and clay, and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to
pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that
no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole
earth. This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king. Thou, O king, art a king of
kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. And wheresoever the
children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath
made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold. And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to
thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall
be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all
these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters‟ clay, and
part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou
sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the
kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they
shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed
with clay. And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be
destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these
kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain
without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath
made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation
thereof sure.
Luke 21:24. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and
Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
Romans 11:25. For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 170

your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

THE TIMES OF THE GENTILES extends over a period of 2,520 years. It corresponds with the SEVEN
TIMES PROPHECY.
A time is a year in biblical prophetic measurement.
7 x 360 years, (the number of days in a sacred or prophetic year), totals 2,520 years.
This period of time commences with the commencement of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon in
606 BC and concludes with the commencement of the great tribulation period of three and a half years.
Gentile dominion of Israel ceased with the capture of Jerusalem by General Allenby, in 1917.
A time is representative of a year. This is seen in Revelation 12:6,14. Both verses apply to the same period of
time. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her
there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle,
that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a
time, from the face of the serpent.

1917 was to see, an aspect of the fulfillment of the times of the Gentiles.
Psalm 95:10. Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their
heart, and they have not known my ways:
Psalm 90:10. The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore
years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
In this aspect, the fulfillment of the times of the Gentiles occurred in 1917. The increase of 40 and seventy
years respectively yield the time element of 1957 and 1987.
I certainly am not declaring that the Lord Jesus Christ will return during this period of time. It is abundantly
clear that no man will know the day or the hour. However, we can confidently expect global events to transpire
that will see the establishment of the ten toes of the image! Further, it is more than a mere coincidence that the
EEC, or the Rome Treaty, as it is also called, was signed in 1957! The whole world will be divided into ten
sections. The club of Rome has already achieved this via the means of a computer model. In the very near
future, this structure will become common knowledge. It also fulfills the NONDESCRIPT BEAST with the
TEN HORNS of DANIEL 7.
It can be confidently expected that the economies of the world will collapse and a New International One World
Order will be established.
In its final aspect, the SEVEN TIMES or the TIMES OF THE GENTILES will see their fulfillment in the
beginning of the period of the GREAT TRIBULATION.

SECTION 9

THE MILLENNIUM

From the SECOND COMING OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST to ETERNITY – A Time Period of 1,000 years.
These events are detailed of the gold section of the End-Time chart.

Revelation 19:11. And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called
Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

THE BEGINNING OF THE 1,000 YEARS. Revelation 20:2. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent,
which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years.
Hebrews 4:4. For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day
from all his works.
The seventh day of the redemptive week is the millennium.
Matthew 11:28-29. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my
yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
The individual Christian is to find rest in Christ.

The seventh day of God‟s rest was enjoyed by ADAM and EVE, the climax of God‟s creation, without sin,
sickness and death. This will also be true of the 7th (rest) day of the redemptive week.
Luke 17:26. And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
BELIEVERS ONLY rose above the watery grave. The ungodly did not enter the ark. The did not escape the
judgment.
As Adam and Eve enjoyed the rest of God on the seventh day of the Creative Week, so likewise will the
BELIEVERS of the Lord Jesus enjoy the millennial rest of the Redemptive Week. There will be neither, sin,
sickness or disease present.

Hosea 6:2. After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
The two days have reference to the two thousand years of the Church age. The third day has reference to the
MILLENNIUM.
A DOUBLE PORTION OF MANNA on the sixth day was the supply that would suffice also the seventh day.
None fell on the seventh day. People went out looking for it. They could not find it. There was none. God had
spoken the truth. Likewise will there be no preaching to sinners in the millennium.

A TRANSFIGURED body will be required for all people present in the millennium. The SEVEN FOLD
strength of the sun would destroy the present human body.
1 Corinthians 15:50. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither
doth corruption inherit incorruption.
The PRIMARY QUALIFICATION for any person to enter the millennial reign of Christ is that they be born
again. There is no way that an unregenerate human being might enter the millennium.
John 3:3,5. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he
cannot see the kingdom of God. Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water
and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
John 14:17. Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth
him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
Ephesians 1:13-14. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation:
in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our
inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

2 Timothy 2:12. If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 172

There are varying STAGES OF RULERSHIP in the millennial age.


Matthew 19:28. And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the
regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones,
judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

A believer may obtain a BETTER RESURRECTION.


Hebrews 11:35. Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting
deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:
1 Corinthians 15:41-42. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the
stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in
corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
1 Corinthians 3:11-15. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any
man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man‟s work shall be
made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man‟s
work of what sort it is. If any man‟s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If
any man‟s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

The NATURAL JEW, comprising Old Testament Israel, will enter the millennium of the same conditions as any
Gentile. He must be BORN AGAIN. There is no difference between the two.
Ephesians 2:14-16. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of
partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in
ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both
unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

Proverbs 2:21-22. For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it. But the wicked
shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.
Malachi 4:1. For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do
wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall
leave them neither root nor branch.
Matthew 13:39-42. The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers
are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and
them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Hebrews 12:29. For our God is a consuming fire.

ADAM, EVE and their CHILDREN were given total dominion over a SINLESS CREATION, free from sin,
sickness, and death. This authority was lost through the Fall.
The LORD JESUS, HIS BRIDE, and the MANCHILD will be given total dominion over the various levels of
the kingdom of God in the Millennial order.

Daniel 2:44. And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be
destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these
kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

Consider the effect of the presence of the Lord on the APOSTLE JOHN.
Revelation 1:17. And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto
me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
Now EZEKIEL.
Ezekiel 1:28. As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the
brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I
fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.

Then DANIEL.
Daniel 8:17. So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but he said
unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end shall be the vision.

If this is the reaction of HOLY MEN OF GOD, then what would be the reaction of the sinner and the ungodly.
They could not live in that glory and holiness.
Psalm 104:35. Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the
LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 173

Even if the ungodly could withstand the glory of God, a life for them in the activities of the Millennial Kingdom
would be sheer HELL!

The RESURRECTION of the RIGHTEOUS DEAD occurs at the COMMENCEMENT of the thousand years.
The ungodly at the END of the thousand years. At the second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ an END is made
of TRANSGRESSION. No sinners will therefore be present in the millennium.
Revelation 14:9-11. And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast
and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the
wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented
with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of
their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his
image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
Revelation 13:8. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book
of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

In the kingdom of God, there are various levels. Those that live and reign with Christ do so over these levels.

Satan, who has been bound for the thousand years, is loosed at their termination.
When this takes place the UNGODLY DEAD WILL ALSO BE RAISED.
Revelation 20:5. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. People
comprise the nation GOG and MAGOG.

The Lord Jesus taught His disciples to pray. THY KINGDOM COME, THY WILL be DONE IN EARTH AS
IT IS in heaven.
SIN will never enter the new earth. We are not to pray for that. We are to pray that the will of the Lord be done
in this earth, NOW! In heaven God‟s will is executed perfectly. The same can not be said for this earth.
Matthew 5:5. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Many of the meekest children of God have never inherited anything.
Romans 4:13. For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed,
through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.
Hebrews 11:13. These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and
were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
Revelation 5:10. And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
When the LORD JESUS CHRIST appears again at His second coming, the time of the beginning of His reign
on the earth, the ANTICHRIST, the FALSE PROPHET, and ALL SINNERS will be taken out of the earth. Sin,
sickness and death, can not dwell in the presence of Almighty God.
Revelation 19:20-21. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before
him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image.
These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the
sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled
with their flesh.
Psalm 37:38. Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace. But the
transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.
The entire Psalm deals with the removal of the wicked.

ARMAGEDDON. Revelation 16:16. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue
Armageddon.

END OF DANIEL‟S 70TH WEEK. Daniel 9:24-27. 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.
Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem
unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again,
and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for
himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof
shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant
with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and
for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that
determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
End Time Events: Volume 4: Things That Are To Be: Part 1 174

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 BEAST AND THE FALSE PROPHET TAKEN. Revelation 19:20. And the beast was taken, and with
him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark

brimstone.

serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years.

SINNERS DESTROYED BY THE BRIGHTNESS OF HIS COMING. 2 Thessalonians 1:8. In flaming fire
taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
2 Thessalonians 2:8. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of
his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
Isaiah 13:9. Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land
desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.

GLORY OF GOD COVERS THE EARTH. Isaiah 40:5. And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all

created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the
things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

THE END OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION.

SUN, MOON AND STARS SHINE WITH SEVEN FOLD STRENGTH. Isaiah 30:26. Moreover the light of
the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in
the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.

END OF THE PRESENT AGE. Matthew 24:3. And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came
unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of
the end of the world?

AN END MADE OF SIN. Daniel 9:24. Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city,
to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in
everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

JUDGMENT ON POLITICAL BABYLON. Revelation 18:1-24. And after these things I saw another angel
come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily
with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the
hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of
the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants
of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven,
saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she
rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her
double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for
she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues
come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the
Lord God who judgeth her.
And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and
lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, Standing afar off for the fear of her torment,
saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. And the
merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The
merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and
scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and
of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil,
and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. And the
fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed
from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her,
shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that
was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! For in
one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and
as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is
like unto this great city! And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas,
that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is
she made desolate. Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you
on her. And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with
violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. And the voice of
harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of
whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at
all in thee; And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of
the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy
sorceries were all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that
were slain upon the earth.

PARADISE was the place of the righteous dead before the Christ. It is now deserted. When Jesus died on the
Cross His Spirit went to paradise. The soul of the repentant thief went to the same place. Both their bodies
went to the grave.
