Thus Says YAHUWAH
And therefore will YHWH wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for YHWH is an Elohim of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.
But they that wait upon YHWH 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.
And kings shall be thy nursing fathers, and their queens thy nursing mothers: they shall bow down to thee with their face toward the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet; and thou shalt know that I am YHWH: for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me.
YHWH is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
Blessed Forever For WAITING
Dani'El Chapter 12:12
The LAST CRISES BEGIN
The Third of the Three Timelines of Dani'El 12
Then I, Dani’ĕl, looked and saw two others standing, one on this bank of the river and the other on that bank.
Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
As we did with the First Timeline of Dani'El chapter 12:6-7, we shall reacquaint ourselves of the definition of terms, the hermeneutics and then go on to decode this intriguing but most important prophecy.
About the book of Dani'El
The book of Dani'El is classified as "prophecy." Prophecy is simply history written before it happens. Prophecy is made up of historical events which occurred in the past, are happening in the present, and will happen in the future. The history of this world extends until the Second Coming of Yahuwshuah. The book of Dani'El, with its four vision-outlines, would be incomplete if their reiteration of events ended in 1844, more than a century before the Second Coming. Not only does Dani'El 11:40-45 cover events extending through the final crisis, but also, the last chapter, (Dani'El 12:1-4, and its Epilogue of three timelines of Dani'El 12:5-13), refers to events involving the last generation, in the future, at the very end of the final conflict.
It is important to understand the structure of the entire book of Dani'El, and necessary to perceive the nature and purpose of the whole book of Dani'El, to know what to do with its last chapter. The book of Dani'El is the story of the rise and fall of seven empires. The first four empires are described in chapter 2, the fifth in chapter 7, and the last two in chapter 11. Dani'El 12, the last chapter, presents the rise and fall of the seventh empire, which occurs in the final actions of earth's history.
The book of Dani'El describes four visions or outlines of the history of this world from Dani'El's day (600B.C.) to the end of the world. The first vision-outline is found in Dani'El, chapter 2. The second vision-outline is in chapter 7. The third vision-outline is in chapter 8 and explained in chapter 9. The fourth vision-outline is in chapter 11, and includes the first four verses of chapter 12. At that point, the book was sealed up.
But thou, O Dani'El, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end...
The last verses of Dani'El 12, (5-13) are an "Epilogue," which, according to Webster's Dictionary, explains "how the work is finished," and presents the rise and fall of the last of the seven empires. Chapter 12 gives numerical data, in the three timelines, regarding the final events which conclude the great controversy between the Messiah and Satan in the final crisis.
A BRIEF LOOK AT THE FORWARD, PROGRESSIVE MOVEMENT OF PROPHECY
IN DATABLE TIME IN THE BOOK OF Dani'El
In the first vision-outline of a great symbolic image in chapter 2, Dani'El saw four great empires rise and fall. They were: Babylon, Medo-Persia, Grecia, and Rome. These empires can be historically dated. The fall of Rome occurred in AD. 476. (Then Dani'El saw the Second Coming of Yahuwshuah.) This is illustrated on the chart which below.
The second vision-outline, of four symbolic "beasts" of Dani'El 7, locks into the same scenes of Dani'El 2 by repetition, so that one outline interprets the next outline. However, the second outline of empires adds the rise and fall of an additional or fifth empire, referred to as the "little horn."
And the ten horns out of this kingdom (fourth kingdom of Rome) are ten kings (countries of Europe) that shall arise and another [fifth empire] shall rise after them.
This "little horn," described the Papal Supremacy that reigned over the old world from AD. 538 to 1798. The second vision-outline moves the scene forward in datable time to AD. 1798. (All four vision-outlines conclude with the Second Coming of Yahuwshuah.) Each additional vision-outline adds more information and moves ever closer to the endtime. This is also illustrated on the chart below.
The third vision-outline again repeats the description of the rise and fall of empires, but adds a 2300 day-year timeline which began in 457 B.C. and ended in A.D. 1844, at the time of the opening of the investigative judgment in heaven. The computation of this 2300 day-year timeline of Dani'El 8: 14 moves still further forward in datable time to A.D. 1844.
The fourth vision-outline of chapter 11:1-45 and 12:1-4, (which also concludes with the Second Coming of Yahuwshuah,) reveals a sixth and seventh empire! The seventh empire is a future Papal Supremacy also described in Revelation 13 as the "beast," with his "mark" of authority over "all the world." Dani'El 11:45 declares that "he shall come to his end and none shall help him." This fourth vision-outline, continuing on into Dani'El 12:1-4, then describes the resurrection of the dead and brings the history of the world to an end.
The sixth empire is described in Dani'El 11:36-40, as the godless, atheistic communist empire known as the USSR which fell in 1989. It was defeated by "the king of the North" in Dani'El 11:40. We are now waiting for the rise of the seventh empire (Now happening before our eyes), after which there will soon be the Second Coming.
This chart below, illustrates the above information. It reveals by the diagonal line with its arrow, the fact that the last chapter of Dani'El belongs in the future, concluding with the final crisis and deliverance of the saints at the end of the world.
LET US READ AND STUDY THE 12TH CHAPTER OF Dani'El.
This admonition by the Spirit of Prophecy is without controversy, placing the fulfillment of the prophecy of Dani'El chapter 12 in the future. This letter was written in 1903. That it is ' A WARNING WE SHALL ... '. We cannot see how 'shall', can be referring to the past.
METHODS OF BIBLE PROPHECY INTERPRETATION
There are three fundamentally different methods of interpretation of the prophecies in the Bible. They are:
- Futurism, and
Preterism is the eschatological view that interprets prophecies of the Bible as events which have already happened. Dani'El is interpreted as events that happened in the second century BC, while Revelation is interpreted as events that happened in the first century AD. Preterism holds that Ancient Yisra'El finds its continuation or fulfillment in the Natsarim or Natsarene church at the destruction of Yerushalayim in AD 70. The term preterism comes from the Latin Praeter, which is listed in Webster's 1913 dictionary as a prefix denoting that something is "past" or "beyond", signifying that either all or a majority of Bible prophecy was fulfilled by AD 70. Adherents of preterism are commonly known as Preterists.
Futurism is the eschatological view that interprets portions of the Book of Revelation, the Book of Dani'El, and other prophecies, as future events in a literal, physical, apocalyptic, and global context.
Historicism is the method of interpretation in Natsarim or Natsarene eschatology which associates biblical prophecies with actual historical events and identifies symbolic beings with historical persons or societies. The historicist school of prophetic interpretation results in a progressive and continuous fulfillment of prophecy and contained the viewpoint of almost all Protestant Reformers from the Reformation into the 19th century. The main texts of interest are apocalyptic literature, such as the Book of Dani'El and the Book of Revelation, and historicist methods have been applied to ancient Jewish history, the Roman Empire, Islam, the Papacy, the Modern era, and even into the end time.
The book of Dani'El is classified as "prophecy." Prophecy is simply history written before it happens. Prophecy is made up of historical events which occurred in the past, are happening in the present, and will happen in the future. The history of this world extends until the Second Coming of Yahuwshuah.
You will agree certainly agree that any thinking person cannot but agree that the only valid way or method of dealing with Prophecies must be the Historicist way or method.
It may interest you to know that following the Reformation, the Papacy desperately sought for a way to turn away the stiff finger of prophecy directed it as the 'Little Horn', the 'Beast' and the 'Anti-Christ'!
The Jesuits, such as Francisco Ribera and Louis de Alcazar, used the malicious technique of interchanging literal and symbolic language, to discredit a correct application of the "little horn" of Dani'El 7:25, representing Papal Rome as it reigned from AD. 538-1798. They ignored the context of symbolic "beasts" and declared the symbolic "time, and times, and dividing of time" of Dani'El 7:25 to be literal time.
Ribera placed a literal "time, times, and an half," or three and a half literal years, far into the future to apply to an unidentified Antichrist, taking the finger of accusation off the Roman Papacy. This technique is known as "Futurism." ("Futurism" is not to be confused with a legitimate "Future Application" of prophecy.) Alcazar placed the literal three and a half years far in the past, as having been previously fulfilled. He accomplished the same objective to remove accusation from Rome. His technique is known as "Preterism."
Futurism and Preterism are both Jesuit techniques. Today, the same techniques, when used by modern theologians, ignores the literal language and literal context of Dani'El 12, with its three timelines, and their literal "days," treating them as if they were symbolic language, or symbolic "days," each representing a literal year. Then, like the Preterists in the sixteen hundreds, the whole scene is relegated to the past, devising a new form of Preterism ! Again, the accusing finger is removed from Papal Rome, when it will reign again in the future final crisis, described in Revelation 13.
Conscientious prophetic expositors do not use Jesuit techniques or devices to distort and misplace, or deny Scriptural messages of warning! When Dani'El 12 is correctly applied, it is a warning regarding the "beast" and his "mark" of Revelation 13, and gives precise timing in regard to his reign. It is a part of the Third Angel's Warning and will swell into the "Loud Cry."
...the seven thunders ... relate to future events which will be disclosed in their order. Dani'El will stand in his lot at the end of the days. John saw the little book [Dani'El] unsealed. Then Dani'El's prophecies have their proper place in the first, second, and third Angels' messages to be given [future] to the world. The unsealing of the little book was a message in relation to TIME.
If one should declare that Dani'El 12 is literal and applies it to the future, will he not be classified as a "futurist" ?
First, consider Dani'El 7:
Many years ago, Roman Catholic prophetic expositors ignored the symbolism of Dani'El 7 with its symbolic "little horn." This little horn would persecute the saints for a "...time and times and the dividing of time,...and think to change times and laws...." This prophecy was a threat to them and they worked to make it ineffective. They displaced the time symbolism and substituted it with literal time. They would not acknowledge the Year-day Computation Principle - the interpretation of prophetic-symbolic time, and declared this period of Dani'El 7 to be a literal three and a half years to be fulfilled at the very end of time. This stance drew the accusing finger away from Rome.
Therefore, a "futurist" is one who substitutes literal applications in place of a true historicist interpretation of those prophecies which are written in symbolism and have time couched within the symbolic context. A "futurist" was one who was determined to divert the gaze from Papal Rome.
On the other hand, those of the Historicist "School" of Prophecy Interpretation, from the days of the Protestant Reformation, recognized symbolic-prophetic passages to be couched in figurative language. They used the cross reference method of study to interpret the symbols and the Year-day Computation Principle to interpret the times couched in symbolic text. They pointed the finger directly at Papal Rome as the fulfillment and persecutor of Elohim's people, past and future! (See Revelation 13:1-10).
The historicist uses both symbolic and literal prophecy to provide an historical continuum of past, present and future. If one declares Dani'El 12 to be written in literal language, to apply to the future he will take his place with the great historicists of the centuries.
HOW SHOULD WE APPROACH Dani'El CHAPTER 12?
Is Dani'El Chapter 12 symbolic or literal? Do we find literal language or symbolic language in the text? Is it for the future or for the past? Could it be a reiteration of the prophecy of Dani'El Chapter 7?
In Dani'El 12 there is no prophetic symbolism-no image, no beasts , no horns, no crowns, no mountains, no stone, no winds, no eyes, no mouth, none of the prophetic symbolism otherwise used in Dani'El or Revelation. It is true that Dani'El was in vision when he heard the conversation recorded in Dani'El 12, but still there is no symbolism in the text. Therefore Dani'El 12 SHOULD BE READ IN ITS MOST LITERAL SENSE.
When prophetic time periods are couched in the context of symbolic figures, these time periods should be treated as symbolic time and decoded by the Year-day Computation Principle. The timelines of Dani'El 12 are not couched in symbolic context and should therefore be considered literal time. Prophetic expositors do not have the right to attempt to decode literal statements of Scripture but must take them in the most "obvious and literal sense." Therefore the "days" spoken of in Dani'El 12 should be regarded as literal days.
The "days" timelines of Dani'El 12 are as follows:
- ...the man clothed in linen ...sware...that it shall be for a time, times, and an half ...to scatter the power of the holy people,.... Dani'El 12:7. "Time" is prophetic terminology, representing a biblical year of 360 literal (24-hour) days'. It is not symbolic or "prophetic" time.
- And from the time that the daily, shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Dani'El 12:11.
- Blessed is he that waiteth and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. Dani'El 12:12.
Some prophecy is written in figurative-symbolic language, such as that of Dani'El 2, 7, 8, and parts of Revelation. These symbols are that of an image, beasts, horns, eyes, mountains, stones, etc. Other prophecies are written in literal language, such as that of MattithYahuw 24:7, "...there shall be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places." It is prophecy because it points to the future but it uses no symbolism. It simply points to specific events to occur.
Only those prophecies which are couched in symbols or figurative language must have those symbols decoded or interpreted. This decoding process or "interpretation" is the first step toward understanding. After the symbol or figure of speech is "interpreted"--decoded, then an application can be made. Prophecies which are written in literal language do not need to be decoded or interpreted. They need only to be applied to the correct circumstance.
The process of decoding or "interpreting" symbolism is circumscribed to a procedure in which the Bible must be its own interpreter or expositor! We are given the following warning which is the first hermeneutic rule of exposition:
Knowing this first, that no prophecy [prophetic symbol] of the Scripture is of any private interpretation. 2 Peter 1:20.
In this process of decoding or interpretation of symbolism, no man is permitted to insert his own private opinions or conjecture as to the meaning of a symbol or figure or type. These meanings must be derived by cross reference Bible study in which other portions of the Scripture unlock or decode the meaning. This process is described in Isaiah 28:9-13 (KJV).
Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? ...For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; ...the word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon percept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little;... YashaYahuw. 28:9-13.
Please beloved, note this:
Regardless of the various translations of YashaYahuw 28 in corrupted Bibles, in which there has been an attempt to discard the cross-reference or topical study of the Scripture, there remains the context which reinforces this basic hermeneutic in which the Bible remains its own expositor or "interpreter" of prophetic symbolism.
This is why this Ministry recommends only the Authorized King James Version of the Bible. Never use any other translation of the Bible for Bible Study, . They are all CORRUPTED AND DESIGNED BY SATAN AND THE PAPACY TO DECEIVE AND MISLEAD! See Our Authorized Bible Vindicated , by B. G. Wilkinson and The Battle of the Bibles , by H. H. Meyers, both, Elohim's mighty men of valor.
If a prophecy is written in symbolism , the first step toward understanding is the decoding or interpretation of the symbol. Only after that is carefully "nailed down" by Scriptural cross-reference, can the next step be taken - that of application. An example follows:
- THE SYMBOL:
- "I saw in my vision ...four great beasts..." Dani'El 7:2,3.
- THE DECODING:
Step No. 1 Interpretation
The Bible interprets the symbols as follows: "These great beasts... are four kings." Dani'El 7:17.
Step No. 2 Application
The four kings, representing kingdoms, are: Babylon , Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome.
Only after such "interpretation" of the symbol is complete, can the prophetic expositor make an APPLICATION to the correct persons or circumstances. When prophecy is written without symbolism, then Step No. 1 is eliminated. It then needs no "interpretation." It requires only Step No. 2 - that of application.
Dani'El chapters 10, 11 and 12, Dani'El's last Vision, a clear narration by the Angel Gabriel, uses NO SYMBOLISM. It needs only an application to the correct circumstances. The book, A WARNING is not an "interpretation" of Dani'El 12. Dani'El 12 uses no symbolism, but it contains perplexing terminology which needs to be defined. Therefore the objectives of the book and this website are to:
- Classify the language form of Dani'El 12 as "literal."
- Define its terms with reference to the original Hebrew language.
- Reduce the KJV's baffling terminology to simple everyday language.
- Provide linkage between Dani'El and Revelation.
- Apply its plain, literal statements to circumstances as described in other passages with endtime prophetic significance.
- Proclaim the warning, "that we shall all need to understand."
- Bring confidence to Elohim's people as the end approaches.
Skillful prophetic Students see no tension or conflict between literal and symbolic forms of prophetic utterance. The Historicist "School" of Prophetic Interpretation and application has used both forms to identify historical-political-spiritual events of the past, present and future. Skillful exposition requires that the Bible student:
- Recognize the difference between literal and symbolic language.
- Understand the harmonious relationship between the two (Symbolic and Literal) prophetic forms.
- Permit the Scriptures to decode or "interpret" the symbols.
- Use the historicist methods consistently for both forms.
- Make consistent applications, using either form, extending the historical view as new messages emerge as time advances the "unrolling of the scroll."
SOME RULES FOR DECODING PROPHECY
Special emphasis should be placed on the following:
- One Bible text shall not be permitted to destroy all others on the same subject!
- One quotation by Ellen G. White shall not be permitted to destroy all others on the same subject.
- Bible verses must be kept in context.
- Quotations by Ellen G. White must be kept in context of the discussion.
- Statements by Ellen G. White must be kept in circumstantial and historical setting.
When such hermeneutic principles are followed, the statements of Scripture and Ellen G. White will be found in perfect harmony. A good hermeneutic will solve the problem of careless assumptions and making up excuses to ignore the Scriptures which deal with closing events!
THE LITERAL APPROACH
Every declaration of Scripture is to be taken in the most obvious and literal sense, except where context and the well-known laws of language show that the terms are figurative, and not literal, and
The above quotation defines one of the most important hermeneutic rules to be used in a study of the Bible. This is called THE LITERAL APPROACH and it applies to all parts of the books of the Bible. It is the only approach approved by Seventh-day Adventists and all Historicists throughout history.
By this literal approach all foundations were laid for Adventism, the doctrines now held by the church, as well as its valid expositions on prophecy. This means that Dani'El 12 must also be subjected to this literal approach and guarded by this hermeneutic principle. In Dani'El 12 there is no prophetic symbolism - no image, no beasts, no horns, no crowns, no mountains, no stone, no winds, no eyes, no mouth, none of the prophetic symbolism otherwise used in Dani'El or Revelation.
Why Should We Be Interested?
In every age there is a new development of truth, a message of Elohim to the people of that generation. It is only as the old truths are understood that we can comprehend the new. When the Messiah desired to open to His disciples the truth of His resurrection, He began "at Mosheh and all the prophets" and "expounded unto them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself." Luke 24:27. But it is the light which shines in the fresh unfolding of truth that glorifies the old. He who rejects or neglects the new, does not really possess the old. For him it loses its vital power and becomes but a lifeless form.
Beloved, the experiences of our Pioneers cannot suffice to see us through in our day. There was a new development of TRUTH for their DAY. It was based on Dani'El 8:14. Dani'El 8:14 was for them Present Truth. In the same way, there is now a new development of TRUTH for our Generation, arguably, the LAST GENERATION. IT IS BASED ON Dani'El 12:5-12.
We want the past message and the fresh message.
LET US READ AND STUDY THE 12TH CHAPTER OF Dani'El. IT IS .
In the Scriptures are presented truths that relate especially to our own time ..., throw a flood of light upon events then to transpire.
HOW TO DECODE BIBLICAL TIMELINES
In the book of Dani'El there are seven timelines. The first four timelines, as they began and ended, set the precedent as to how to begin and end the last three timelines in Dani'El 12. In this way, the Bible is its own interpreter. Human speculation is not permitted.
The seven timelines in the book of Dani'El are as follows:
- Dani'El 4:16 The seven year timeline of Nebuchadnezzar's insanity.
- Dani'El 7:25 - The 1260 years of Papal Supremacy No. 1 over Europe.
- Dani'El 8:14 - The 2300 years (from 457 B.C. to AD. 1844)
- Dani'El 9:24 - The 490 years (from 457 B.C. to AD. 34).
- Dani'El 12:7 - The 1260 literal days of scattering (persecution) of Elohim's people.
- Dani'El 12:11 - The 1290 literal days of Papal Supremacy No. 2 over all the world.
- Dani'El 12:12 - The 1335 literal days "WAIT" for final deliverance from the final death decree.
NOTE THESE IMPORTANT PRINCIPLES:
- All Biblical timelines begin and end with a Fulfillment of a Bible prophecy.
- A "speaking VOICE," which is,
- A Legislative or judicial action (The passing of a Law or Judgment).
The First Four Timelines Set the Precedent for the Last Three Timelines of Dani'El 12. (The Rule of First Mention)
- Example No. 1: The Seven Year Timeline of Nebuchadnezzar's Insanity.
The seven years began when the prophecy of Dani'El 4:16 was fulfilled in Dani'El 4:33.
"The same hour was the thing fulfilled." Dani'El 4:33.
The seven years began with a "speaking Voice." A heavenly legislative action.
"...there fell a voice from heaven, saying, to thee it is spoken ... seven times shall pass over thee." Dani'El 4:31,32. The seven years began with legislative action (a Decree or Law). "This matter is by the decree of the watchers ..." Dani'El 4:17.
- It ended by a Judicial action also: "O king, this is the decree of the most High." Dani'El 4:24.
- The seven years began when the prophecy of Dani'El 4:16 was fulfilled in Dani'El 4:33.
- Example No. 2: The 1260 Day-Year Timeline of Papal Supremacy No. 1 Over Europe.
- The 1260 day-year timeline began when the prophecy of Dani'El 7:25 was fulfilled in,
- The Decretal Letter written by Justinian, emperor of Rome. This letter declared that the bishop of Rome should be titled the "Head of all Natsarim or Natsarene Churches," giving him ecclesiastical authority. He was also given the power of State with the title, "Corrector of Heretics." He used this power to persecute, thus establishing Papal Supremacy No. 1 over Europe in AD. 538.
- Papal Supremacy No. 1, over Europe and the "old world," ended exactly 1260 years later, when Napoleon of France took the Pope captive in AD. 1798. The 1260 year timeline ended with Judicial Action or judgment by the French government.
- Example No. 3: The 2300 Day-Year Timeline.
- The 2300 day-year timeline began as a fulfillment of the prophecy of Dani'El 8: 14 and Dani'El 9:25, which was,
- The Decree ("commandment") to restore and rebuild Yerushalayim. (See Dani'El 9:25).
- The 2300 timeline ended with Judicial Action. The Investigative Judgment began in AD. 1844. (See Dani'El 7:9-12 and 13,14).
- Example No. 4 - The " 70 Weeks" or 490 Year Timeline.
- The 490 year timeline began with the fulfillment of the prophecy of Dani'El 9:24.
- It began with the Decree ("commandment") to restore and rebuild Yerushalayim.
- It ended with the Decree or action of the council to stone Stephen in AD. 34. This was Judgmental action against 'the Messiah's representatives. Yisra'El was judged or "cut off." Dani'El 9:24.
The first four timelines of the book of Dani'El, which began with fulfilled prophecy, with "speaking voices" which are Decrees (Laws), and also ended with Decrees or Judicial action, set the precedent as to how to begin and end the last three timelines of Dani'El 12.
“The ‘Speaking' of a nation, is the action of its Legislative or Judicial Authorities.”
A KEY POINT: The books of Dani'El and Revelation are one prophetic unit. The three timelines in Dani'El 12 begin and end with fulfilled prophecies in the book of Revelation. It is the fulfillment of these prophetic texts which begin and end the three timelines of Dani'El 12, referring to future events. Dani'El 12:5-13 and Revelation 13 are one unit. Only by integrating the two books, is the Bible permitted to be its own expositor.
The book of Dani'El is unsealed in the revelation to John, and carries us forward to the last scenes of this earth's history. “... The study of the Revelation directs the mind to the prophecies of Dani'El, and both present most important instruction, given of Elohim to men, concerning events to take place at the CLOSE OF THE WORLD’S HISTORY”
DECODING Dani'El 12:12
Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to . Dan 12:12 KJV
Dani'El asked a fundamental question in Dani'El 12:8. The disciples of Yahuwshuah asked it. The saints who already inhabit heaven asked it. (See Dani'El 8:13). We are asking it. What is this question?
Tell us...what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?"
Then I Dani'El looked, and, behold, there stood other two [saints],.... And one said.... How long shall it be to the end?.... Dani'El 12:5,6. ... 0 my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?
How long shall it be to the end?
Dani'El asked it. Five hundred years later the disciples were asking the same question! It is a most vital question considered by students of Scripture in all the ages, but it becomes urgent and consuming to those who are the last generation! This question and its answers are the key to understanding the three timelines of Dani'El 12. What is the answer?
In Dani'El 12:6, the Saints asked,
"And one said to the man clothed in linen.... How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?" In Dani'El 12:8, Dani'El asked, "... 0 my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?".
Yahuwshuah answers both. (Dani'El 12:11 [KJV])
"And from the time [that] the daily [sacrifice] shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, [there shall be] a thousand two hundred and ninety days."
500 years later, the Disciples' asked in MattithYahuw 24:3
"... saying tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming and of the end of the world?"
In MattithYahuw 24:15, 16; Yahuwshuah answers.
"When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Dani'El the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains"
Yahuwshuah, in the most specific manner, connected the events spoken of in MattithYahuw 24 with the book of Dani'El. His answer to the disciples' question plainly reveals this relationship when He told them (and us) to keep our eyes focused on "the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Dani'El the prophet" MattithYahuw 24:15.
The "abomination of desolation" (or transgression of desolation) was spoken of by Dani'El in the following references: Dani'El 8:12, 13, 23; 9:27; 11:31 and 12:11. Each of these references is prophecy because the fulfillment would occur after Dani'El's day. However, several of these references refer to different historical events and therefore each must be given its correct application.
If you are wondering how the Personage clothed in linen who answered Dani'El's question, is Yahuwshuah, rest. Remember that tracing the progressive forward movement of Prophecy, the vision is placed in time, during the Anti-typical Day of Atonement. At this time, the High Priest must be clothed in Linen. And Hebrews chapter 9: , is clear that Yahuwshuah is our High Priest. The Anti-typical Day of Atonement began on October 22, 1844, according to Dani'El 8:14. And according to the Seventh-day Adventist Bible Commentary Volume 4, pages 858 and 879 "the man clothed in linen" in Dani'El 12:7 is Yahuwshuah, in His priestly ministry "clothed in linen," and who walked upon the water!
What or who was the abomination of desolation in when they saw fulfillment? Who was it in ? Who will it be
It is astonishing as to how many students of the Scriptures will ignore the One who gave the prophecy, the ONE who repeated it to His disciples, and the One who so plainly identified it in another parallel passage of Scripture! It is incredible that so many ignore the words of Yahuwshuah, and labor to construct some other complicated explanation to focus on some peripheral idea rather than on the specific identification as given by Yahuwshuah Himself!
This "abomination of desolation" was shown to Dani'El in prophetic vision and given to him, as in all other prophetic Scripture, from "Yahuwshuah HaMashiach, which Elohim gave unto him, to show unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass ; and he sent and signified it by his Angel unto his servant John" [or Dani'El] Revelation 1:1. About 500 years later, it was Yahuwshuah who again called attention to it in MattithYahuw 24:15. And it is this same Yahuwshuah who identifies exactly who this abomination is in the parallel Scripture of Luke 21:20,21.
"When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Dani'El the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them... flee into the mountains"
"And when ye shall see Yerushalayim compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judea flee to the mountains; ...."
MattithYahuw 24 refers to the "abomination of desolation" but in Luke 21:20,21 the term is shortened simply to "desolation." The meaning is the same which is evidenced by similar context and admonition to "flee into the mountains." In MattithYahuw , Yahuwshuah referred to the enemy as the "abomination," but in Luke that "abomination " is simply spoken of as "armies" (the armies of Rome). It is the Scripture itself, in the very words of Yahuwshuah, by Bible cross-reference which identifies the "abomination" to be ROME!
For more than a century, Elohim's Sabbath-keepers have identified the "abomination of desolation" in MattithYahuw and Dani'El as Rome, first Pagan, then Papal, in its past and future historic roles. The most recent comprehensive statement of definition is as follows:
When "the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Dani'El the prophet" is set up (MattithYahuw 24:15), Yahuwshuah's people are to pray that their flight from their persecutors will not be on the Sabbath day. Yahuwshuah was referring to Dani'El 8:13 and 9:27. The little-horn power of Dani'El 8 represents both Pagan and Papal Rome. It first set up the "abomination of desolation" (MattithYahuw 24:15), or "the desolating sacrilege" (RSV) when the Roman armies threatened Yerushalayim (AD. 66-70). The context of Yahuwshuah's statement indicates that a second fulfillment came in the Middle Ages. (See MattithYahuw 24:15-29.)
Let us lay aside all conjecture and lines of reasoning and begin with the words of Messiah! Permit the Bible to be its own expositor! Not until the Bible student gets this fundamental understanding is he ready to understand Dani'El 12! Enter it into the mental notebook. THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION WAS, IS, AND WILL BE ROME.
Historicists have consistently understood the "abomination of desolation" to refer to Rome. This has been the consistent view of the Protestant Reformation and Adventism. When would-be prophetic expositors leave this platform, darkness and confusion are the inevitable result. Without this understanding there can be no insight into the meaning of the three timelines of Dani'El 12. Dani'El, the prophet, saw the "abomination of desolation" to be:
- ROME in its Pagan phase in the destruction of Yerushalayim in 70 AD.
- ROME in its Papal phase in the persecutions of Natsarim (Natsarene). (538-1798 AD)
- ROME in its Papal phase in future persecutions. SDA Bible Commentary Vol. 4 841.
What is the Desolation?Definition:
Desolation: "laying waste; ruin, destruction, havoc, ravage."
The prophet Dani'El saw three specific desolations in prophecy:
- Dani'El 9:26, 27 The destruction of the temple and Yerushalayim 70 AD.
- Dani'El 7:20, 21, 25; 8:9-13, 24; 11:31: The desolation or persecution of the Natsarim or Natsarene church in Europe which was called The Papal Supremacy (No.1) 538-1798 AD.
- Dani'El 12:11; 12:7; 11:41-44 - Revelation 13:7 The desolation or persecution as described in Revelation 13 will be known as The Papal Supremacy (No. 2) coming in the Future.
Papal Supremacy (No. 2) will be different from that which existed from 538 to 1798 in Europe. Papal Supremacy (No. 2) as described in Revelation 13 will be, not merely over Europe, but over ALL the world!When:
- ...his deadly wound was healed : and ALL the world wondered after the beast. Revelation 13:3.
- And it was given him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them [desolate them]: Revelation 13:7.
- ...and power was given him over ALL kindreds and tongues and nations. Revelation 13:7.
- And ALL that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life.... Revelation 13:8.
- ...as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed [desolated] Revelation 13:15.
The abomination of desolation spoken of by Dani'El the prophet, quoted in MattithYahuw 24:15, is the same abomination of desolation mentioned in Dani'El 12:7 and 11, and this Dani'El 12 prophecy is a parallel of Revelation 13!
The abomination of desolation is mentioned in Dani'El 12 as follows:
And from the time that the daily...shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Dani'El 12:11.
Yahuwshuah interpreted this term found in MattithYahuw 24:15, and defined in Luke 21:20, to refer to the armies of ROME. This interpretation should be sustained.
In the days of the Messiah, the abomination referred to Pagan Rome-the Roman Empire. It must be remembered that the Roman Empire was succeeded by Papal Rome. It is Papal Rome which fulfilled the prophecies of Dani'El 8 and 11in reference to the abomination of desolation from 538 to 1798. Therefore, any endtime application must refer to Papal Rome. It is Papal Rome which again fulfills the prophecy of Dani'El 12:11 in the future.
The abomination of desolation describes Papal Rome in its persecutions, past, present and future. It was Rome which desolated Yerushalayim in 70 AD., it was Papal Rome which desolated the saints for 1260 years (Dani'El 8) and it will be Papal Rome which will desolate-persecute Elohim's people in the future as designated in Dani'El 12. Therefore, the term abomination of desolation is specifically, the Papacy involved in a persecution and described as a future threat in Dani'El 12.
If there is one truth which Satan would obscure, it is this. If there is one truth needed, to understand the three timelines of Dani'El 12, it is this: that the abomination of desolation is Papal Rome since it will persecute the saints just before Yahuwshuah comes. It is the beast of Revelation 13, and the focus of the third Angel's warning message of Revelation 14.
THE "ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION" of Dani'El 12:11 is PAPAL ROME in a future PERSECUTION
Understanding MattithYahuw 24:15
Tell us," they said, "when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of Thy coming, and of the end of the world?" Yahuwshuah did not answer His disciples by taking up separately the destruction of Yerushalayim and the great day of His coming. He MINGLED the description of these TWO events. Had He opened to His disciples future events as He beheld them, they would have been unable to endure the sight. In mercy to them He BLENDED the description of the TWO great crises, leaving the disciples to study out the meaning for themselves. When He referred to the destruction of Yerushalayim, His prophetic words reached beyond that event to the final conflagration in that day when the Lord shall rise out of His place to punish the world for their iniquity, when the earth shall disclose her blood , and shall no more cover her slain . This ENTIRE discourse [MattithYahuw 24] was given, not for the disciples only, but for those who should live IN THE LAST SCENES OF THIS EARTH'S HISTORY.
The prophecy which He uttered was TWO-FOLD in its meaning: while foreshadowing the destruction of Yerushalayim, it prefigured also the terrors of the last great day.
The Saviour's prophecy concerning the visitation of judgments upon Yerushalayim is to have ANOTHER FULFILLMENT [a dual application] of which that terrible desolation was but a faint shadow. In the fate of the chosen city we may behold the doom of a world that has rejected Elohim's mercy and trampled upon His law.
The disciples asked a dual question:
- "When shall these things [destruction of Yerushalayim] be?" MattithYahuw 24:3.
- "What shall be the sign of thy coming, and the end the world?" MattithYahuw 24:3.
Yahuwshuah gave them a dual answer. Not until the prophecy student understands the dual application of MattithYahuw 24:3 can he comprehend the dual reference to the "abomination of desolation spoken of by Dani'El the prophet." MattithYahuw 24:15.
The MattithYahuw 24: 15 prophecy has a dual application but the "abomination of desolation spoken of by Dani'El the prophet" applies to three historical events!
The Three Historical Events:
- Dani'El 9:26, 27; The 70 AD. destruction of Yerushalayim
- Dani'El 7; 8; 11:31; The 538-1798 Papal Supremacy No. 1 persecutions in Europe
- Dani'El 12:7, 11; The future endtime healed Papal Supremacy No. 2 over all the world, described in Revelation 13.
Valid applications have been made from MattithYahuw 24:15 to the "abomination of desolation, " referring to the 538-1798 Papal Supremacy. The early Advent pioneers and Ellen G. White, under inspiration of Elohim, made this application. However, today we recognize that this was a secondary application because it was not yet a fulfillment of the "terrors of the last day" nor was it yet the final "doom of the world that has rejected Elohim's mercy and trampled upon his law."Definition: "Primary." - means, first in importance and not necessarily in time or sequence. "Secondary" refers to that of lesser importance.
Today we recognize that the secondary application of MattithYahuw 24:15 to the 538-1798 Papal Supremacy must give way to a future, endtime application of primary importance to the last generation who will surely see the "terrors of the last day." Therefore a future application of MattithYahuw 24 and Dani'El 12 now have become of primary importance. From the vantage viewpoint of the last generation, it is obvious that there are two primary applications to MattithYahuw 24:15:
- Destruction of Yerushalayim, AD. 70
- The end of the world
The ruin of Yerushalayim was a symbol of the final ruin that shall overwhelm the world. The prophecies that received a partial fulfillment in the overthrow of Yerushalayim have a more direct application to the last days. We are now standing on the threshold of great and solemn events. A crisis is before us, such as the world has never witnessed.
What is "the holy place" of MattithYahuw 24:15?.
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Dani'El the prophet, stand in (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains:
What was the "holy place" in which the Roman armies, the abomination of desolation, were to stand? While it is true that in 66 AD. Cestius Gallus "penetrated as far as the northern wall of the Temple" in Yerushalayim, he did not enter into the Temple itself, not into the holy place nor the Most Holy place of its sanctuary.
He was repelled and for some unknown reason retreated."
If the Roman armies did not at that time enter into the holy place of the Temple, what was the "holy place" on which they stood in fulfillment of MattithYahuw 24:15?
In Luke 21:20 Yahuwshuah said, "And when ye shall see Yerushalayim, compassed with armies...then ...flee." The word "compassed" infers that these Romans would surround or be outside of Yerushalayim. What "holy place" was outside of Yerushalayim?
The prophetess explains it this way:
When the idolatrous standards of the Romans should be set up in the holy ground [holy place], which extended some furlongs outside the city walls, then the followers of Messiah were to find safety in flight.
The question then follows: What exactly was this "holy ground" outside the walls of the city? What made it holy? What was its purpose?
The city fathers of Yerushalayim were strict Sabbath keepers. They made certain that the gates of Yerushalayim were locked at the beginning of the Sabbath so that no merchandising or vendors could carry on business within the city during the holy Sabbath hours. Not until the sun went down on Saturday night could traffic begin. Worldly vendors liked to camp up close to the walls, spread out their wares, attract attention of any on top of the wall or near the gates or of any who might need to enter or depart during the Sabbath hours. Therefore, to remove this distraction or infringement, for several furlongs beyond the walls there was established the "holy Sabbath ground" or "holy place" on which worldly vendors could not camp.
How did the Roman armies "stand" on that holy Sabbath ground? They placed their idolatrous standards, flags and banners and symbols, or jabbed them into that ground to announce the "takeover" by Rome!
The Roman standard, equivalent of our flag, was the MARK or symbol of the authority of Rome. Pagan Rome was a union of religious and civil power. Pagan Rome was a union of sun worship and civil authority so that the standards bore on them the symbols of the sun and other things. Yahuwshuah explained to His followers in MattithYahuw 24>that when they should see Rome place its MARK of authority, its symbol of sun worship on their holy Sabbath ground, they would know that it was time for them to flee from the city to the mountains.
Yahuwshuah gave his Disciples a dual answer:
The prophecy which He uttered was twofold in its meaning: while foreshadowing the destruction of Yerushalayim, it prefigured also the terrors of the last great day.
The first application was to occur in their day, but the greater fulfillment was to be at the end of the world.
The Saviour's prophecy concerning the visitation of judgments upon Yerushalayim is to have ANOTHER FULFILLMENT, of which that terrible desolation was but a faint shadow. In the fate of the chosen city we may behold the doom of a world that has rejected Elohim's mercy and trampled upon his law.
This endtime fulfillment is the greater or primary fulfillment of MattithYahuw 24:15. But the same warning that applied to the Jews will apply to Elohim's people in the endtime.
As He warned his disciples of Yerushalayim's destruction, giving them a sign of the approaching ruin , that they might make their escape; so He has warned the world of the day of final destruction and has given them tokens of its approach, that all who will may flee from the wrath to come.
TO THE DISCIPLES AND US.
What sign did Yahuwshuah give? What is THE WARNING? What is the token of its approach? The sign, the warning, the token is found in MattithYahuw 24:15.
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation [Papal Rome trampling on Elohim's holy Sabbath ground], spoken of by Dani'El the prophet [in Dani'El 12] stand in the holy place [placing its mark of authority, a Sunday law, in the very country which is the headquarters of Elohim's remnant people], (whoso readeth let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judea [among Elohim's people] flee into the mountains:
As the siege of Yerushalayim by the Roman armies was the signal for flight to Judean Natsarim (Natsarene), so the assumption of power on the part of our nation [the United States of America] in the decree enforcing the Papal sabbath will be a WARNING to us. It will then be time to leave the large cities, preparatory to leaving the smaller ones for retired homes in secluded places among the mountains.
HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?
THE USA ENACT A NATIONAL SUNDAY LAW?
Although many states in the United States have Sunday laws or "blue laws" on the books, the nation has never yet ventured to legislate a National Sunday Law. Other countries have local or even National Sunday Laws but the United States of America has not yet done so because the Constitution forbids it: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion."
Only in flagrant violation of these safeguards to the nation's liberty, can any religious observance be enforced by civil authority..
When ...our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution ...we may know, that :..THE END is near.
By virtue of this religious freedom and prosperity, the United States has been the headquarters for the remnant people who keep the commandments of Elohim and the faith of Yahuwshuah (Revelation 14:12). It has been the means by which they could take the gospel with its three Angels' messages to all the world over this last century.
This fact brings the United States of America into the focus of endtime prophecy. (Revelation 13:11). Prophecy focuses on Elohim's people all the way through history. The Jews were Elohim's people in the Old Testament and today it is Elohim's people upon whom prophecy focuses in Revelation 13 and Dani'El 12!
As the Jews were the focus of the warning of MattithYahuw 24: 15, so again at the end of this world's history, it is the remnant people in the United States who shall also be warned by that same prophecy and its fulfillment as the sign or token for them to flee the desolation to come.
Therefore, a National Sunday Law in the United States of America is the primary endtime fulfillment of MattithYahuw 24:15 and it is the beginning of the endtime scenario timelines of Dani'El 12:7-12.
WHAT IS THE WARNING?
The "WARNING" is found in MattithYahuw 24:15 and Dani'El 12!
As the siege of Yerushalayim by the Roman armies was the signal for flight to the Judean Natsarim (Natsarene), so the assumption of power on the part of our nation in the decree enforcing the Papal sabbath will be a WARNING to us. It will then be time to leave the large cities, preparatory to leaving the smaller ones for retired homes in secluded places among the mountains. Let us read and study the 12th chapter of Dani'El. It is a WARNING that we shall all need to understand before the time of the end.
The same warning of MattithYahuw 24:15 is amplified in Dani'El 12. This warning begins the timelines of Dani'El 12. But, what exactly is THE WARNING? It is a National Sunday Law in the United States of America (NSL-USA).
...the assumption of power on the part of our nation in the decree enforcing the Papal sabbath."
Why must Elohim's people leave the large cities? How soon must they leave after the National Sunday Law is passed? Why the haste? What follows? What did Yahuwshuah say?
...flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take anything 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 that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, ....
What is the great tribulation which follows the National Sunday Law in the United States of America?
It is at the time of the national apostasy [legislation of a National Sunday Law], when, acting on the policy of Satan, the rulers of the land will rank themselves on the side of the man of sin [the Papacy], it is then the measure of guilt is full; the national apostasy [Sunday Law] is the signal for NATIONAL RUIN.
Apparently this national ruin follows so quickly after the NSL-USA that Yahuwshuah urged and warned His people to act immediately to leave the large cities. No time is to be taken to dispose of goods and properties or to prepare for the new life in the country. It is then too late to make preparations. Many of Elohim's people have already acted by taking their families to the country. Not one believing Natsarim or Natsarene perished in Yerushalayim and there is no need for any believing Natsarim or Natsarene to perish in the cities in the near future. Those who are still in the large cities, to save their lives, must then leave at once, by whatever medium of transportation they can get!
Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Dani'El the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
The book of Dani'El is unsealed in the Revelation to John, & carries us forward to the last scenes of this Earth’s history. “... The study of the Revelation directs the mind to the prophecies of Dani'El, and both present most important instruction, given of Elohim to men, concerning events to take place at the CLOSE OF THE WORLD’S HISTORY”
- “The Dani'El 12 time prophecies are fulfilled specific prophetic events in the Revelation recorded as ‘Speaking voices'.
- The same events will be identified by cross-referencing their counterparts in MattithYahuw 24 also.
- We shall apply all relevant rules of Bible study.
- We shall apply the Master Key of prophetic interpretations.
The Master Key of Prophecy Interpretation
SPEAKING” OR “VOICES” “The ‘Speaking' of a nation, is the action of its Legislative or Judicial Authorities.”
No one who is not familiar with the work of the Spirit of Prophecy in Ellen White's writings, shall ever be able to make accurate sense of the wonderful book of Revelation and Dani'El!
You could never guess or work this out by research that when we meet any of these twin words, , in Prophetic text, that they mean, the 'action of the Speaker's legislative or Judicial authorities. This is phenomenal. We thank Yahuwah for using HIS humble instrument Mrs. E. G. White to cause so much new light to shine forth from well-worn texts in scriptures. It is indeed the 'Master Key' of Prophecy Interpretation.
You may try to apply it to prophecies you may have been familiar with in the past, especially fulfilled ones and see how easy those studies might have been had we realized this provision in the Spirit of Prophecy at the time. And so Scriptures remain unbreakable, "My people perish for lack of knowledge".
WHAT WILL THE ISSUE BE?
The summary of the issue will be the Sabbath/Sunday Controversy. Are you for or against the Sabbath or for or against the Sunday, as days of worship? But this is a simplified way of looking at the issue.
The main issue will be this: Who's authority do you bow to? Yahuwah's or Satan, represented by the Papacy? By whose Calendar are you choosing to decide your days for worship? Yahuwah's or Satan's?
It is true that a lot of us do accept the Sabbath, the Seventh day of the week as a day of worship, as against Sunday the first day of the Gregorian week because the Bible is clear,:
(Exod 20:8 [KJV])
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
(Exod 20:9 [KJV])
Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work:
(Exod 20:10 [KJV])
But [is] the sabbath of Yahuwah thy Elohim: [in it] thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that [is] within thy gates:
(Exod 20:11 [KJV])
For [in] six days Yahuwah made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them [is], and rested the seventh day: wherefore Yahuwah blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.".
But that has been our collective naivety in view of the fact that we all know of the various Calendars in existence today. Would you presume to locate the Sabbath using the Hijri - the Muslim calendar, or any of the Buddhist or Hindu calendars, no, you won't? You certainly will not do that if you are looking for the Sabbath of the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth, whose Son is Yahuwshuah, our Savior.
And the deceit of the Gregorian Calendar had wholly fooled the world of Natsarenity that our work-a-day calendar, the Gregorian Calendar, has always been, and is the Biblical Calendar! It is not the Creators calendar. And unless we use the Creator's Calendar, we could never find HIS Sabbath!
The greatest scandal of course remains that the Divine Calendar is in the Bible in plain view but deception completely distracted the Saints from it! But truth may take time to triumph, but it always does. It has once again. All the efforts of the Papacy to conceal this wickedness could not suffice to keep it hidden forever. It is now a woeful failure. The challenge now beloved is, would you join that failure or join Yahuwah's victory?
Here in this website, you can have all you need to re-familiarize yourself and family and church of the Divine Calendar. Then shall you fully understand Scripture and worship the Creator on the day HE really MADE.
Please beloved, make no mistake about this, that, whether you worship on Saturday or Sunday or Tuesday, as long as you made that choice by the Gregorian or any other Calendar apart from the Biblical Calendar, you will be bowing to the authority of the Antichrist and Antichrists! You will be a worshiper of the Beast!
As a consequence of some global catastrophes and circumstances, the Papacy shall begin to extol the Sunday and call the world to more dedication and worship on Sundays only, as their interpretation of those coming catastrophic events will be that they are the direct result of the desecration of Sunday!
The USA who would have borne the greater pain of those global catastrophes, would join forces with the Papacy to enforce the reverence of 'Sunday' in a deceived attempt to avert further disasters. Prophecy asserts that the beginning of the end of time will be marked by the formation of the 'Image of the Beast'. America will become the Image of the Beast (the Papacy), when her legislative (Civil) power combines with her religious authorities to enforce a religious requirement!
Just as the Beast is a fusion of Religious and Civil power seated at the Vatican city-state, so shall the US become its Image.
The End of the crises will be marked by the deliverance of Elohim’s people, would abandon the Gregorian and other calendars for the Divine Calendar and the Holy Sabbath which HE commanded. And that deliverance will be spectacular as the whole Universe including us will hear HIS VOICE on that day - the 1335th day. Beloved, plan to be on HIS side on that day. What a day it promises to be!
FORMATION OF THE 'IMAGE OF THE BEAST'
The speaking Voice that speaks the crises into commencement is found in Revelation 13:11
The Image of the Beast “... as a dragon'.
And I beheld another beast coming up out of the Earth, and he had two horns like a lamb, and...that they should make an IMAGE TO THE BEAST...
The lamb-horned beast(USA), ‘spake as a dragon' as the US Congress Legislates a National Sunday Law, in formation of the Image of the Beast (Papacy). The National Sunday Law (NSL) fulfills MattithYahuw 24:15.
Now the ‘Abomination of Desolation - .
This is the Warning.
The One thousand, three hundred and thirty-five-day (1335-day) Persecution in America and some parts of the world begin at once.
Elohim’s people must endure and wait to the end of 1335 days for deliverance from the persecution.
And it shall be said in that day, “See, this is our Elohim. We have waited for Him, and He saves us. This is יהוה (YAHUWAH), we have waited for Him, let us be glad and rejoice in His deliverance.”
The Spiritual fall of Babylon is complete. Babylon at this point has mushroomed in size to encompass everybody in the world, religious or not, who is not at that time a part of the 'giving of the Loud Cry' of the 4th Angel (Revelation18:2-4) and indeed the entire messages of the three Angels of Revelation chapter 14.
Elohim’s people begin giving the ‘Loud Cry' of the ‘Third & Fourth Angels’ messages. The fourth Angel's message is particularly poignant and urgent:,
And I heard another voice from the heaven saying, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her Plagues.
Persecution Mounts, and yet huge populations abandon their former loyalties and join the 144,000, the 'Loud-Criers'. (Revelation 13:15-17).
Yashayahuw the Prophet said,
For I [know] their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory.
And I will set a sign among them, and [to] Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, [to] Tubal, and Javan, [to] the isles afar off, .
For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith Yahuwah, so shall your seed and your name remain.
And it shall come to pass, [that] from one New Moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith Yahuwah
THE WAIT ENDS
A ‘Speaking Voice' delivers Elohim’s children. The declaration of the innocence and guiltlessness of the 'rebels', is a judicial action by Heaven.
And the 7th Angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great ‘VOICE’ out of the Temple in Heaven, from the Throne saying, ‘it is done'”
This is the Voice of Elohim.
The voice of Elohim is heard from Heaven, Like peals of loudest thunder, His words roll through the Earth. The Yisra'El of Elohim stand listening, with their eyes fixed upward ... And when the BLESSING is pronounced on those who have honored Elohim by keeping His Sabbath holy, there is a mighty shout of victory.”
As the saints left the cities and villages, they were pursued by the wicked, who sought to slay them. But the swords that were raised to kill Elohim's people broke and fell as powerless as a straw. Angels of Elohim shielded the Saints. As they cried day and night for deliverance, their cry came up before the Yahuwah." It was at midnight that Elohim chose to deliver His people. As the wicked were mocking around them, suddenly the sun appeared, shining in his strength, and the moon stood still. The wicked looked upon the scene with amazement, while the saints beheld with solemn joy the tokens of their deliverance. Signs and wonders followed in quick succession. Everything seemed turned out of its natural course. The streams ceased to flow. Dark, heavy clouds came up and clashed against each other. But there was one clear place of settled glory, whence came the voice of Elohim like many waters, shaking the heavens and the earth. There was a mighty earthquake. The graves were opened, and those who had died in faith under the Third Angel's message, keeping the Sabbath, came forth from their dusty beds, glorified, to hear the covenant of peace that Elohim was to make with those who had kept His law.
Let the song be to you as in a night set apart for a festival, and gladness of heart as he who is going with a flute, to come into the mountain of יהוה, to the Rock of Yisra’ĕl.
And יהוה shall cause His excellent voice to be heard, and show the coming down of His arm, with raging wrath and the flame of a consuming fire, with scattering, downpour and hailstones."
With shouts of triumph, jeering, and imprecation, throngs of evil men are about to rush upon their prey, when, lo, a dense blackness, deeper than the darkness of the night, falls upon the earth. Then a rainbow, shining with the glory from the throne of Elohim, spans the heavens and seems to encircle each praying company. The angry multitudes are suddenly arrested. Their mocking cries die away. The objects of their murderous rage are forgotten. With fearful forebodings they gaze upon the symbol of Elohim's covenant and long to be shielded from its overpowering brightness."
By the people of Elohim a voice, clear and melodious, is heard, saying, "Look up," and lifting their eyes to the heavens, they behold the bow of promise. The black, angry clouds that covered the firmament are parted, and like Stephen they look up steadfastly into heaven and see the glory of Elohim and the Son of man seated upon His throne. In His divine form they discern the marks of His humiliation; and from His lips they hear the request presented before His Father and the holy Angels: "I will that they also, whom Thou hast given Me, be with Me where I am." John 17:24. Again a voice, musical and triumphant, is heard, saying: "They come! they come! holy, harmless, and undefiled. They have kept the word of My patience; they shall walk among the Angels;" and the pale, quivering lips of those who have held fast their faith utter a shout of victory."
It is at midnight that Elohim manifests His power for the deliverance of His people. The sun appears, shining in its strength. Signs and wonders follow in quick succession. The wicked look with terror and amazement upon the scene, while the righteous behold with solemn joy the tokens of their deliverance. Everything in nature seems turned out of its course. The streams cease to flow. Dark, heavy clouds come up and clash against each other. In the midst of the angry heavens is one clear space of indescribable glory, whence comes the voice of Elohim like the sound of many waters, saying: "It is done."
That voice shakes the heavens and the earth. There is a mighty earthquake, "such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great." Verses 17, 18. The firmament appears to open and shut. The glory from the throne of Elohim seems flashing through. The mountains shake like a reed in the wind, and ragged rocks are scattered on every side. There is a roar as of a coming tempest. The sea is lashed into fury. There is heard the shriek of a hurricane like the voice of demons upon a mission of destruction. The whole earth heaves and swells like the waves of the sea. Its surface is breaking up. Its very foundations seem to be giving way. Mountain chains are sinking. Inhabited islands disappear. The seaports that have become like Sodom for wickedness are swallowed up by the angry waters. Babylon the great has come in remembrance before Elohim, "to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath." Great hailstones, every one "about the weight of a talent," are doing their work of destruction. Verses 19, 21. The proudest cities of the earth are laid low. The lordly palaces, upon which the world's great men have lavished their wealth in order to glorify themselves, are crumbling to ruin before their eyes. Prison walls are rent asunder, and Elohim's people, who have been held in bondage for their faith, are set free".
Graves are opened, and "many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth. . . awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt." Dani'El 12:2. All who have died in the faith of the Third Angel's message come forth from the tomb glorified, to hear Elohim's covenant of peace with those who have kept His law. "They also which pierced Him" (Revelation 1:7), those that mocked and derided Messiah's dying agonies, and the most violent opposers of His truth and His people, are raised to behold Him in His glory and to see the honor placed upon the loyal and obedient."
The BLESSING is the pronouncement of the EVERLASTING COVENANT.
The voice of Elohim is heard from heaven, declaring the day and hour of Yahuwshuah's coming, and delivering the everlasting covenant to His people. Like peals of loudest thunder His words roll through the earth. The Yisra'El of Elohim stand listening, with their eyes fixed upward. Their countenances are lighted up with His glory, and shine as did the face of Moshe when he came down from Sinai. The wicked cannot look upon them. And when the blessing is pronounced on those who have honored Elohim by keeping His Sabbath holy, there is a mighty shout of victory. Soon there appears in the east a small black cloud, about half the size of a man's hand. It is the cloud which surrounds the Saviour and which seems in the distance to be shrouded in darkness. The people of Elohim know this to be the sign of the Son of man. In solemn silence they gaze upon it as it draws nearer the Earth, becoming lighter and more glorious, until it is a great white cloud, its base a glory like consuming fire, and above it the rainbow of the covenant. Yahuwshuah rides forth as a mighty conqueror.
This is a judicial declaration by the ‘voice of Elohim.’ The details of the events that occur at the ‘Voice of Elohim' are seen in E. G. White's Early Writings, 285-286; Great Controversy, 636-640.
The Voice terminates the persecution of Elohim’s Children exactly 1335 days from the day that the NSL-USA goes into effect.
