  2. After 1,000 years the image is broken
  3. The definition of their second coming is from the start of the 1st plague and ends after the   1,000 yrs, so basically they dont call the coming of Christ to meet the saints in the air as 2nd coming, for them the real 2nd coming will be when the New Jerusalem touches the earth after the 1,000 yrs

CLAIM #1 During 7 plagues, only 10 toes are destroyed being broken slowly

ANSWER:
In the dream of Nebuchadnezzar, let us read closely how the image was destroyed. We cannot just jump into one verse and conclude that everything in the image is destroyed at one event when the other verses are saying something else.

POINT #1 – FIRST PHASE of DESTRUCTION

POINT #2 – SECOND PHASE OF DESTRUCTION

1. Daniel 2:34 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.

2. Daniel 2:35, 45 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.  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;

What does this verse (Daniel 2:34) really reveal? First to be smitten and broken to pieces were the FEET (iron and clay). It does not say the stone smote the image upon the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and gold and broke them to pieces together. The breaking of the image started with the feet which are the 10 kingdoms of the world today or the club of Rome.

How are the feet being smitten by the stone?
When Jesus is done in His work in the Most Holy Place, there is no more that can stay the wrath of God or the plagues. The Holy Spirit has departed from the earth and the 4 winds are released. So, when Michael stands up, the time of trouble begins or the 7 plagues will start to fall (Dan 12:1). When He stands up, He is getting ready to redeem His saints which are all sealed and found in the book of life. He just got done finalizing the list of the citizens for His kingdom. What is missing now are citizens to occupy of the New Jerusalem. That is why Jesus needs to appear in the clouds to rapture them and into the Holy City.  

So, when probation closes, plagues will fall and start to smite the nations which are alive at that time which is composed of the 10 toes or 10 kingdoms. The rest of the worldly kingdoms of Satan (represented by the gold, silver, bronze, iron) cannot partake in this destruction because during plagues they are still sleeping in the ground waiting to be resurrected after 1000 years. Those people are yet to be destroyed and become chaff after 1000 years in the battle of Gog and Magog. Malachi 4; Revelation 20:8.

The plagues for the wicked comes from His Word. Jesus does not have to literally appear in the clouds in order to start to hit the FEET or ten toes. The ten toes will start to suffer and be hit when first plague is poured out. The ten toes do not need to wait for the appearing of Jesus in order to be smitten. The first plague starts their judgment and they will start to suffer.

Revelation 19:15 - 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

Revelation 11:6 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. 

When Jesus appears in the clouds, the ten toes will be completely smitten and destroyed by the brightness of His coming. 2 Thess 2:8. Even during this time, Satan and his angels are still alive. ONLY the wicked in the kingdom of the TEN TOES will suffer, made a desolation and to be destroyed. But remember, the rest of the wicked from Cain are still sleeping in the ground. They will partake in the destruction of the whole image in the next phase which is after 1000 years.

The Bible does not even mention that when Jesus destroys them by the brightness of His coming, the wicked will become like chaff and the stone cut without hands became a great mountain. Plus, that entire image which is made up by the nations that always existed from Babylon to present day still need to be judged which happens during 1000 years. They will be executed after 1000 years.

Daniel 2:35, 45 tells us that when all the components of the image were broken, they became like chaff carried by the wind and there was no place found for them and the stone became a great mountain and filled the whole earth. The wicked in the second appearing of Jesus are only those from ten toes. They will not also become chaff carried by the wind and be found no more. They can still be found during this time waiting to be resurrected after 1000 years.

Didn’t the Bible revealed to us that after 1000 years, a second resurrection (Rev 20:5) will happen which will compose of all the wicked from the generation of Adam down to the close of probation? This is the whole kingdom of Satan. While inside the New Jerusalem, Jesus stood as King and saints His subjects, outside the City stands Satan the king and all wicked like the sand of the sea as his subjects, once again deceived by their master (Rev 20:8). Now these are getting ready to be destroyed ALTOGETHER. When this kingdom will gather to make war, fire will devour them and they will burn forever (Rev 20:9). ALTOGETHER they are broken to pieces and become like chaff (Malachi 4, Revelation 20:8) carried by the wind to exist no more (Daniel 2:35, 45). It is then that the Kingdom of God will fill the whole earth, when Earth is made new. Satan and his kingdom will be seen no more. There was no place found for them. This could not happen when Jesus appears in the clouds. Christ’s kingdom cannot fill the whole earth during His second appearing. Therefore, this stone that became a great mountain is clearly an event that happens after 1000 years, after hellfire and not in the second appearing of Jesus in the clouds.

Many believe that there are no more earthly kingdoms after 1000 years because they were already destroyed a long time ago. If they are destroyed a long time ago, does it mean they were already turned to ashes a long time ago and so where is the stone that became a great mountain today? So, how can they claim that the image is destroyed in the 2nd coming if the kingdoms of Babylon to legs of iron were already destroyed a long time ago? Destruction of the wicked people which make up a kingdom is future and not past otherwise the 2nd coming would have already been done.  

What makes up a kingdom? Is it buildings or palaces? Or is it people? We know when Bible speaks of kingdoms it talks about people and nation. What makes up a nation? Is it buildings? So, are there no more nations after 1000 years?

Revelation 20:7-8 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 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. 

It is clear that after 1000 there are still nations, kingdoms and people. What is missing is these do not have any POWER to reign at all because when probation closes, all earthly kingdom cannot anymore rise into POWER. Infact, they are being made a desolation.

Of course, Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon who repented will not be part of this great movement. Imagine the wicked earthly kings resurrected during this time? The number of the wicked as the sand of the sea. This is the greatest wicked empires or kingdoms ever gathered but is gathered to be destroyed ALTOGETHER. The great image can be seen standing up. This entire image are the wicked from The book of Genesis Babylon kingdom down to the close or probation which was the 10 toes. The great image is resurrected to be destroyed finally in the summer threshing floor of Malachi 4.

Daniel and John both saw the destruction of the entire image represented by the wicked that are as many as the sand of the sea. These two books connect. These are the two witnesses that speak of what is to happen.
“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 forever. 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 ... what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.”  Daniel 2:35, 45

“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.” Revelation 20:12-15

CLAIM #2 After 1,000 years the image is broken

ANSWER:
As mentioned in Claim 1, Nebuchadnezzar will not be a part of this “sand of the sea” camp of Satan for Nebuchadnezzar repented. Daniel 4:37 and the kingdom was restored back to him. But it does not mean that the kingdom of Babylon will not exist after 1000 years but that they will have no power to reign. The collective kingdom of this image as the sand of the sea will be resurrected in order to receive their judgment. Imagine when the first kingdom was recorded in the Bible. Here comes Nimrod the great hunter, who built up Babylon and all the wicked people that joined him in his effort to build a tall tower of Babel. All the wicked people including Nimrod will stand as like they were during the time when they existed. The same feeling and mind before they died will be when be the same at the 2nd resurrection. What about the other kings recorded in history? So, what then? These died as kings and will be raise feeling and being like a servant? And what then? The servants will be raised to be kings? Absolutely Not. What about Satan the arch rebel and leader of apostasy? Satan was put down to the side of the pit for 1,000 years. And what shall he do when he is released from his prison? Well, he will once again go out to all the nations to deceive them and that number is the sand of the sea and he will be their king to rule over them again to try and take the tree of life that is within the city, and thus these nations from Genesis to Revelation is all of Satan’s host from Cain to the last wicked person, which is that complete image standing up as a great nation where they think they can take heaven and keep it for themselves. So, for a moment look inside the city, Jesus Christ the King and His redeemed are the constituents, and thus Satan has a nation looking for a kingdom for themselves, but they will be destroyed in their attempt to take the tree of life thinking they will live forever! This phase which takes place is the last time Satan will rule over anything again as he and his nation (the image of Daniel 2) will be destroyed in the Battle of God and Magog (Revelation 20), which this cannot happen right at Christ’s second appearing, but can only be possible after 1000 years when they are all raised in the second resurrection to finally be ultimately destroyed once and for all as the Words of Malachi 4 will be fulfilled.

For those that believe EGW is a prophetess:
“At the first resurrection all came forth in immortal bloom; but at the second, the marks of the curse are visible on all. Kings and the noble men of earth come forth with the mean and the low, learned and unlearned together.” { 1SG 214.1 }

If the whole image becomes powder and to be found no more at the second appearing of Jesus, why can they still be found after 1000 years? In fact, when Jesus appears in the clouds, Satan and his wicked angel cannot be destroyed yet. Satan is to be alive for 1000 to behold the earth desolate. That is why during this time, the stone cannot become a great mountain to fill the whole earth yet because Satan still exists. Sin can still happen if there was to be a wicked alive. It is contradicting to claim that they all are destroyed at the 2nd appearing but then will again exist after 1000 years because again if they are altogether destroyed, they would have already become ashes to be found no more. Truth is, only the ten toes or the wicked who are going to make it into the plagues will suffer and be destroyed when Jesus appears in the clouds to rapture the saints. The second event of destruction will happen after 1000 years.
Ezekiel 28:18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffic; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.

If you put this destruction in one event at Jesus coming, it will look like this:

Interesting note to ponder upon: The great image perfectly describes Satan himself. First, he was created with beauty (Eze 28:13) and had a special position (Eze 28:14) in heaven until he started to rebel (Isaiah 14:13) in his heart and carried out his rebellion. His character went from being of high value as gold then to silver down to the last elements of clay and iron until the image was finally destroyed. (Eze 28:16, 19)

Kindly refer to claim 1 for verses.
Additional: To those who believe EGW is a prophetess.
I then beheld the earth. The wicked were dead, and their bodies were lying upon the face of the earth. The inhabitants of earth had suffered the wrath of God in the seven last plagues…. The earth seemed to be deluged with blood, and dead bodies were from one end of the earth to the other. { 1SG 211.1 }

This clearly proves that in the second appearing of Jesus in the clouds to redeem the saints, the wicked will not be turned to ashes yet. Their dead bodies can still be seen everywhere and Satan has to behold this for 1000 years. But after 1000 years, dead bodies can no longer be seen laying everywhere. All the wicked will turn to ashes including Satan and his angels. Rev 20:10

CLAIM #3: The definition of their second coming is from the start of the 1st plague and ends after the   1,000 yrs, so basically they dont call the coming of Christ to meet the saints in the air as 2nd coming, for them the real 2nd coming will be when the New Jerusalem touches the earth after the 1,000 yrs

basically they don’t call the coming of Christ to meet the saints in the air as His 2nd coming, the real 2nd coming is when the New Jerusalem touches the earth after 1,000 yrs.” Where is the proof that we preached this? We never preached that the coming of Christ to meet the saints in the air is not His second coming. We believe it is second coming, yet it is part of the SECOND coming but the belief of His second coming is not just one event.

If you understand the purpose why He is coming, you will understand the whole process of the second coming. If every purpose is a coming of itself and we will count it then we would have how many comings of Jesus. But the Bible only revealed SECOND. If after 1000 years is a THIRD coming, then Bible  would say it clearly.

Here are the purposes of His coming:

PURPOSE #1: To judge, destroy and punish the wicked
Isaiah 26:21 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. 

Isaiah 35:4 Say to them [that are] of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come [with] vengeance, [even] God [with] a recompense; he will come and save you. 

When is the day of the Lord’s vengeance?
Isaiah 34:2,8 For the indignation of the LORD [is] upon all nations, and [his] fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter.  For [it is] the day of the LORD's vengeance, [and] the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion.

Revelation 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? 

The year of recompenses = 7 plagues fall in one year to punish the wicked inhabitants of the earth
the day of God’s vengeance and judgment  = a day equals year (Ezekiel 4:6)

Matthew 24:50-51 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for [him], and in an hour that he is not aware of,  And shall cut him asunder, and appoint [him] his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth

Day = year (He comes in that day where He punishes them not by His presence but by the plagues which comes from His mouth and completely destroys ten toes when He appears in the clouds and they all be destroyed by the brightness of His presence)

PURPOSE #2: To resurrect the dead saints and reward them
Matthew 16:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works
1 Thess 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
So, Jesus is coming to resurrect the saints. This is an event that takes part in HIS COMING, which happens at His appearing at end of 7th plague.

PURPOSE #3: To Consume and destroy satan
2 Thess 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:

When Jesus appears in the clouds to rapture the saints, only the wicked will die. But Satan and his angels will be spared. Therefore, they are not destroyed and consumed as of yet. Even the Bible says that they are put into prison or pedition to behold their destroyed kingdom where the nations of these people have been put into the sleep of death. But after 1000 years, destruction Satan will happen in the hellfire.

PURPOSE #4: To resurrect and execute judgment upon all wicked
Jude 1:14-15 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.

Colossians 3:4  When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Malachi 4:1,3 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. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do [this], saith the LORD of hosts.

PURPOSE #5: To set up New Jerusalem on Earth made New (New Heaven/New Earth) -
Revelation 21:1-3 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 I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.  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. 

Zechariah 14:4-6, "And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee."

These are the events at His COMING. Each event has a purpose and the last purpose for His coming is seen as New Heaven and New Earth. After this, He will not leave His people to come back again otherwise that will be the THIRD ADVENT which is nowhere to be found in the Scripture.

THE SECOND COMING is a process and the purposes are summarized in these 2 verses.
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. 

The Lord will COME to do what? This verse says,
the wraths is come = 7 plagues,
the time of the dead that they should be judged = 1000 years judging the wicked,
reward unto the saints = 1st resurrection unto Eternal life and rapture into the Holy City,
destroy the wicked = destroy the wicked who are found alive at His 2nd appearing & finally 2nd resurrection unto hellfire after 1000 years

All these events point to the time when He will “COME”. Also, before the wicked be destroyed there is called 2nd resurrection. And also before the saints are raptured, there is 1st resurrection. So, if we count the events here we can clearly see how many of them:
#1 – coming of wrath (7 plagues) – Rev 16
#2 – 1st resurrection (1 Thess 4:16)
#3 – rapture of Saints ( 1 Thess 4:17)
#4 – 1000 years (Rev 20)
#5 – 2nd resurrection ( Rev 20)
#6 – hellfire (Gog and Magog) - Rev 20
#7 – new Heaven, new Earth (Rev 21, 22)

But we do not count events in order to determine the number of COMING. The Bible only revealed one SECOND coming and it has several events.

Isaiah 11:11 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

Nowhere does it talk about a 3rd time that He will redeem His people. There is only one redemption that is future.

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.

If you think for a moment, when Jesus appears in the clouds, for all the saints living or resurrected, that is the 2nd coming or appearing for them. After 1000 years, when the wicked will be resurrected, it is still 2nd coming or appearing for them for they never experienced the 7th plague or have seen Jesus’ 2nd appearing in the clouds. This coming will only be counted 3rd appearing only to the wicked who experienced the special resurrection and those alive till the 7th plague. Otherwise, majority of the wicked will never see the 2nd appearing till after 1000 years when they are raised. So again, the 3rd coming is not 3rd coming for the saints because since rapture they are already with Jesus and Jesus will not leave them to come again for them the 3rd time but that the City will descend to Earth and this for the rest of the wicked who never made it to the plagues is still 2nd appearing or coming. That is why the whole process of setting up the Kingdom on Earth to fill the whole earth like the stone that became a great mountain is all but part of the SECOND COMING of Jesus Christ the King.

Also, there is no proof that we teach that the SECOND COMING is delayed or prolonged. Once probation is closed, there is no delaying because the time of trouble is already prophesied for 1 year and the end of that last plague Jesus will appear to rapture the saints. We never preached that after 1 year of plagues there is a season of delay or a prolonged time before Jesus can rapture the saints or before Jesus can appear in the clouds to redeem the saints.

Ezekiel chapter 12 talks about the captivity of Israel as prophesied by God because of their rebellion. God was saying that this prophecy will not be delayed or prolonged but that it will come to pass. The day of their captivity to Babylon will surely happen and won’t be delayed or prolonged and lo it came to pass. They were taken captive to Babylon. Please everyone must remember we cannot use 2 or 3 verses of a chapter and conclude it is for a specific event. Ezekiel 12 does not talk about 2nd coming being prolonged. It is the prophecy concerning the captivity of rebellious Israel.

Ezekiel 12:2 Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they [are] a rebellious house. 12:3 Therefore, thou son of man, prepare thee stuff for removing, and remove by day in their sight; and thou shalt remove from thy place to another place in their sight: it may be they will consider, though they [be] a rebellious house.  12:11 Say, I [am] your sign: like as I have done, so shall it be done unto them: they shall remove [and] go into captivity.  12:13 My net also will I spread upon him, and he shall be taken in my snare: and I will bring him to Babylon [to] the land of the Chaldeans; yet shall he not see it, though he shall die there.  12:27 Son of man, behold, [they of] the house of Israel say, The vision that he seeth [is] for many days [to come], and he prophesieth of the times [that are] far off.  12:28  Therefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; There shall none of my words be prolonged any more, but the word which I have spoken shall be done, saith the Lord GOD.

Verse 27 says people thought this vision is for many days to come and not soon but God said no, the words spoken shall be done and won’t be prolonged. Again, nothing about 2nd coming being prolonged or delayed and we also do not believe it is going to be prolonged. In fact, our days will be very quick and fast that probation is going to close very soon. Matthew  24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. 

ANOTHER THING TO LOOK AT and understand is how these ministries which proclaim supposed original writings are using this book (A Word to the Little Flock) to push the 3rd coming without Scriptural proof. Because it mentioned a third event does not mean it is third coming. An event does not define how many times Jesus is coming but it defines a specific purpose during His coming. So they are misinterpreting what the book is describing. This chapter talks about the Judgment and it says… BOOK PAGE image

"This scripture evidently points out the most important events of the day of Judgment. That day will be 1000 years long. - 2 Peter 3:7.8. The event which will introduce the Judgment day, will be the coming of the Son of Man, to raise the sleeping saints, and to change those that are alive at that time. The second event, will be the King’s sitting “upon the throne of his glory.” The third event, will be the gathering of all nations before the King, in their separate places. All nations cannot be thus gathered, until the end of the 1000 years, when the wicked dead will be raised, and gathered up around the Holy City. The saints will then be in the City, and the wicked out side of it. All nations will then be before him. The fourth event, will be the delivering of the sentence by the King. His sentence upon the whole host of Gog and Magog, will be, “Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels,” Matthew 25:41. The fifth event, will be the execution of the final judgment."

When they use this chapter, they left out the 4th and 5th event in order to push the doctrine of 3rd coming. Because a third event is mentioned does not mean this is another coming. If we base from that, it would mean:
1st event = 1st coming = the coming of Jesus to resurrect the saints
2nd event = 2nd coming = Jesus sitting on His throne
3rd event = 3rd coming = gather of nations before the King after 1000 years
4th event = 4th coming = delivering of the sentence to the wicked
5th event = 5th coming = execution of final judgment (hellfire)

Really, does it make sense to you? If you really search the Word you will understand ALL these events all point to the SECOND COMING of the SON of GOD. These are all part of the whole process of WHY is HE coming again the SECOND TIME.

Also, the first (advent) coming was established because man and God was separated and so man has to be redeemed by Jesus becoming a man and to die on the cross. The second (advent) coming is also established based on the facts that Jesus left His church on earth after His resurrection. Another separation between Jesus and His people happened. To establish a third (advent) coming, Jesus would need to leave the saints and to return once again for them. But Scripture tells us that when He raptures the saints, there will be no more leaving them but that He and them will be together forever.

CLAIM #4 There is no global unity during the last plague. 1 hour with the beast happens before the fall of 7 plagues

The global UNITY prophesied in the Bible is found in

Revelation 17:12-14 - 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. 

What does the mind mean here in this prophecy? What does it mean to have one mind?

1106  gnome  gno'-may
from 1097; cognition, i.e. (subjectively) opinion, or (objectively) resolve (counsel, consent, etc.):--advice, + agree, judgment, mind, purpose, will.

In this prophecy, we see the whole world will agree and surrender their power and strength unto the beast for one hour to enforce SUNDAY worship or DIE (Revelation 13, 14, 20). This is the 8th beast standing in full force (Revelation 17:11). In literal days it is 15 days for 1 day (24 hours) = 1 year (360 days). So, 360/24 equals to 15 literal days in fulfillment. What does this whole 8th beast do during this one hour? As we can see, we are under the 3rd angel’s message warning the whole world of what is coming which is the enforcement of the law forcing people to worship on Sunday. Every law has a set penalty. The Bible mentions two penalties for violations. First is no buy and sell. Next is a command to kill or death decree. Looking back at the 7 heads of the beast of Revelation 17, we can understand that we are in the 7th head; all the 7 heads of the beast points to the time when probation is still open. From head 1 or Babylon down to Vatican II the 7th head is still at the time of open probation. This is our time today. The Bible warns us that an 8th beast shall rise into power for an hour and shall make war with the Lamb but then will be overcome (Revelation 17:14).

Every student of prophecy understands that the fulfillment of the 3rd angel’s message must start first in the 2nd Beast (America) of Revelation 13:11-18. This second beast will exercise all the same power of the first Beast Rome (Revelation 13:1; 12). If you look at the power of this first beast, you can understand what will happen to the world when the 2nd beast exercises that same power. Miracles and lying wonders have to happen as well in order to convince the world of their powers before this Sunday law becomes global. Then the whole world will follow her path as prophesied in Revelation 17:12-14, where the whole world will stand in UNITY with the same purpose to enforce Sunday worship, but on a GLOBAL scale. This time, not just America but the WHOLE WORLD will join into ONE movement to make war with God. How does the whole world make war? They will force everyone to receive the SUNDAY MARK and agree with Sunday laws or DIE, which this global power will point to the calamites in the world, climate change, chaos, corruption, rioting, natural disasters and what have you to convince the world to go to church and pray for the good of the world. They will as one voice, as one mind to make void the law of God and declare Sunday as a day to worship God, and the Vatican will once again set up their 3 strike system for all who will not comply.

"Every man and woman shall repair in the morning to the divine service and sermons preached upon the Sabbath (Sunday), and in the afternoon to divine service, and catechizing, upon pain for the first fault to lose their provision and the allowance for the whole week following; for the second, to lose the said allowance and also be whipped; and for the third to suffer death."!!! Laws, and Orders, Divine, Politique, & Martial For the Colony in Virginia: first established by Sir Thomas Gates, Knight, Lieutenant - General, the 24th of May, 1610

As the 2nd beast uses the IMAGE of the BEAST, which are the churches united with the state to make sure everyone goes to church, they can also have the ability to report to the state who did not report or comply with the Sunday worship law. This will also happen through the contact tracing that is being set up and with the national ID card system. The churches will use the power of the state to persecute those who will refuse to comply. This is prophesied in Revelation 13:15 - 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. Speak means to legislate and cause is to enforce. Therefore, the churches that are united with the government will pass a law that everyone must worship on SUNDAY, and like every law there is a penalty, which will ultimately lead to a DEATH DECREE for those violators (Revelation 13, 14, 20), which the whole world will be tested on this death decree before close of probation and the seven last plagues fall. Once this Sunday law death decree goes forward, many will die! Revelation 14:13 - And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed [are] the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

The 2nd beast will have to perform miracles and lying wonders, which we can see already the protestant ministers have been doing in order to convince the 10 kings and the nations under them, to give their power and strength unto the first beast to rule over the world through the global state as Rome did in time past, which this global one mind system will be fully established once Satan appears pretending to be the Christ (2 Thessalonians 2:9). And so, when the 10 kings submit their powers to worship the 1st beast's global system, which has been set up by Satan and pays homage to Satan, that is when Satan will then make the Sunday law global. That global Sunday law will have the ultimate penalty to punish the violators. And everyone knows that there is no law passed without a penalty; and thus, when the law is enforced, the penalty is also enforced. It is that simple to understand and to also see in our daily lives. Take note: In time past, it use to take the enforcement of laws a long time because they did not have the technology as we have it today. It can happen overnight today. They pass a law today and it is ready to go global instantly. And when Satan appears and all hear this global law that anyone who will not comply with Sunday laws shall die.

Furthermore, just to bring more clarity and understanding, why do the churches cry and pass a law to worship on Sunday; Because of the calamities and the effects of the Loud Cry on their churches. As many people hear the truth, these churches will be stirred up into anger because they would see that their members are in doubt and worse leaving. The calamities will also be treated as God’s displeasures to man that’s why everyone must go to church and pray to appease the wrath of God. So, you can see, there is a current problem and their solution must be URGENT for their problem is URGENT and life threatening. Calamities everywhere are costing many lives. They want this to stop ASAP. Therefore, they will pass a law to solve their problem and penalties will also come with the law.

To say that a Sunday law is passed and its death decree penalty is going to be enforced much later, truly, that is not in line with the current situation when that time comes and they need to act fast. Their current problem requires an URGENT solution. These Sunday violators need to be exterminated in order for these calamities to stop. Satan and his hosts will not wait for almost a year to enforce their death decree penalty while they are facing a serious CURRENT problem; plus, Satan knows what the Word of God reveals, so he knows that when probation closes, his death decree cannot work, thus he knows he must act fast! When you look into the time of the 7 last plagues, the 144,000 are sealed and cannot be moved, and so Satan has no power over them. It is over with during this time, all cases have been decided for heaven or for destruction. Thus, Satan knows he must enforce his death decree law and carry it out swiftly while probation is open and in effect, many people will die during the enforcement of Sunday law. Rev 20:4. It is BEFORE probation where the intense battle of the Mark of the BEAST Sunday law death decree will take place and not during the 7 last plagues when the King of kings and Lord of lords is overcoming them through the outpouring of His mighty wrath, which the wicked will know from plague one they are being punished and destroyed (Jeremiah 8:20; Amos 8:12). So, nothing else will matter once the saints are sealed for the time of God's wrath (Revelation 7, 14, 16).

The SUNDAY law for the new world has no buy and sell and death decree. We cannot separate these three for they all come together. Listen to these verses:

Revelation  13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast (ROME) before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 
13:13     And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, 
13:14     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. 
13:15     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 (THOSE THAT WILL NOT WORSHIP) as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.  (DEATH DECREE AGAINST VIOLATORS, not just 144,000 which are just part of the violators, but ALL THE WORLD)
13:16     And he causeth all (EVERYONE in the WORLD) , both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 
13:17     And that no man (EVERYONE) might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 

This is the Sunday law, which will eventually become universal as prophesied where all the kings of the earth will support the campaign to worship the beast for one hour (as John saw in vision represented as gathering the wicked into one camp to face the battle of God in the plagues. Rev 16:14, 16), which God allowed them to rule during this time to test and to try them that dwell on the earth. This global empire of Satan will stand up under his command as the 8th and final beast before probation closes! Then Christ will tread it down, smite the nations and cast them into His great wine press, which is know as His 7 last plagues!

Revelation 14:19  - And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast [it] into the great winepress of the wrath of God. 

Now, remember how this system is going to work in all this; they will enforce a buy and sell system first in America to have the world look to the second beast as the world already does to see how it is all working, then at Satan's appearing will take place as the world's greatest pretender appears and does lying wonders and miracles to convince the world to worship him, then the last resort is to scare them of death. It is natural for man to fear death that is why we are warned by Jesus,

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. 

During Sunday laws, when they start killing the true Christians who will not bow down to the false day of worship, those who killed them thinketh they are doing the work of God (John 16:2). Every man on earth will face the same penalty for disobedience, a no buy and sell punishment. This is not too fearful for those who can sustain themselves with their own food. The no buy and sell will not affect them as like those who are reliant from store-bought food. But when death penalty is enforced, fear will test everyone. Those who will be scared will flee and hide yet wherever they go, the test must come to them and they MUST decide or else. Everyone alive during this time will have to face the final test. Those who will be scared will give up their faith in order to stay alive but God said.

Matthew 10:39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

But for the 144,000 death cannot come near them. They cannot be touched for they are sealed and prepared for the 7 plagues. Revelation 7:3. We cannot find a special death decree for them that is legal during the plagues. Whatever decree they made when probation is opened can be carried on after probation closes for the wicked will continue to be wicked. Revelation 22:11. The death decree in Revelation 13:15 is clearly defined as part of the whole SUNDAY LAW enforcement prophesied by the 3rd angel which is for the entire world before probation closes. There is no Sunday law death decree in the plagues from the Scriptures. And thus, this SUNDAY LAW system MUST happen before the wrath of God is poured out. Satan very well knows that the 144,000 cannot be touched even before close of probation and much more after probation has closed. Why will he create a special decree for them when he knows it’s not going to work? Our enemy is not that stupid. The reason why he wants you to believe there is a SUNDAY law death decree execution in the plagues and not before close of probation is to catch his prey off guard. This is why we must be careful of what man says, especially when they claim supposed original SOP writings are true when they have not an ounce of Biblical support. He is so wise and we should not underestimate what he knows about the plans of God revealed in the Bible. He knows how special the 144,000 are for they are the first fruits of Jesus unto the Father, and thus Satan object is to catch them off guard before probation closes because he knows that he can't touch them after probation closes when they are sealed (Revelation 7, 14). These are they who will remain alive until the appearing of Jesus Christ.

Furthermore, those who will seal their testimony with their blood (martyrs) and those who will stand alive till the end are the one who will stand perfectly during this time of the last great test. These are they who are called, faithful and chosen (Rev 17:14). Whether they lose their life or stay alive, their loyalty is to the Lamb. They are the armies of the King who sat on the throne that John saw in vision who will fight with the 8th beast. (Rev 19)

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. 19:14 And the armies [which were] in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.  

For those who believe EGW is a prophetess of God: "The great rebel against God is leading his armies to the conflict; but let the followers of Christ bear in mind the fact that he can bruise only the heel, while those who are loyal to Christ by their fidelity and piety shall bruise the head of the serpent. While men are making void the law of God, we must pray, as did David,“It is time for thee, Lord, to work; for they have made void thy law.” Through Christ believers will gain the mastery, and inch by inch they will contest the ground, and obtain the victory." { ST November 14, 1895, par. 4 }

Let us earnestly prepare for the conflict that is before us, for Satan’s armies are marshalling for the last great struggle. { 19MR 376.3 }

This is the camp of God. The King of kings and His armies of Saints (attended by the heavenly hosts). What will the beast, the dragon and the kings of the earth do against this camp?

Revelation 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.  17:12 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. 17:14 These shall make war with the Lamb...

God’s armies (the saints who will stand for their faith whether to lose their life in death or stay alive attended by God's angels) will make war against the armies of the beast and the 10 kings who unitedly stood in one mind to enforce their Sunday worship. Revelation 17:12

Some ministries have claimed that the war of Revelation 19 will happen at Jesus' appearing in the clouds or at end of 7th plague. Then the Rev 17 war is at the 6th plague. But note that Rev 19:19 " And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army." This war in Rev 19, the beast and kings of the earth are gathered together to make war against God. So, in 6th plague, they gathered to make war with the Lamb in the 6th plague. Then gathered again in the 7th plague. So there are 2 "one hour with the beast" movement? How can they gather for 15 days during 6th plagues and gather again 15 days in the 7th plague? They do not see that Revelation 17 and 19 war are the same war which happens at the same time BEFORE the plagues or even before Jesus appears in the clouds.

The reasons why the Revelation 19:19 war cannot happen in the 6th plague nor 7th plague, as some claim that this must be the time of the one hour with the beast war, is as follow:
1.     Jesus cannot be seen in the 6th plague. He will be seen towards end of 7th plague. So, placing this during 6th plague is saying that Jesus can be seen in the 6th plague.
2.     Only John saw Jesus with His armies making war against the beast, the 10 kings and their armies. This war cannot even happen in the 7th plague, or when Jesus arrives in the clouds. When He arrives in the clouds it will be to put the rest to death by the brightness of His second coming. Jesus made war long back before the 6th plague. The 7th plague is utter destruction for the wicked and not their time to war against the One that sat in the white horse.  
3.     There is not a prophecy that points to a literal battle against Jesus Christ and His angels or the saints coming down from heaven to earth to make war in the 6th plague nor 7th plague and not even the time when probation is still open. The saints are still on Earth getting ready to be raptured when 6th plague falls and when 7th plague falls, it is the utter destruction of the wicked.
4.     In the 6th plague, support for Babylon is dried up. People that made it to this point are dried and withered enough ready to be destroyed by the brightness of the coming of Jesus. Since they are withered and dried, where is their one mind to enforce Sunday worship death decree? Like dried leaves they are suitable for burning and not for war. [Download image]

let us look closely at Revelation 17 where the one hour with the beast war is located and with Revelation 16 and Revelation 19 war. The main actors are the beast and the kings of the earth. Revelation 17:12; 19:19. These are fighting against the armies of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords or the Lamb, Jesus Christ. Revelation 19:14, 19; Revelation 17:14. They that are with the Lamb (Revelation 17:14) are those armies (heavenly host attending the saints on Earth during Sunday Law) that John saw in vision in Revelation 19:14. The ending is also the same. Those of the beast and the kings of the earth will be punished when He starts to tread the winepress which happens in the plagues Revelation 19:15 and eventually were cast into the lake of fire. Revelation 19:20. While in Revelation 17:11, 14 it is obvious that the Lamb shall overcome them and eventually they go into perdition as the Bible clearly reveals for 1,000 years.

If you also notice, Revelation 19:20 is related to the enforcement of Sunday law. It perfectly describes that during this war, miracles will be used as tactics to deceive as is also mentioned in Revelation 13:14 - 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. This clearly takes place before probation closes.

Revelation 14 is the Loud CRY message which warns us of the enforcement of the mark of the beast. This is the greatest last test and the greatest WAR that everyone in this world will face. Revelation 13 tells us what they will do in this WAR. There are specific elements that mark the character of this WAR. The other verses in Revelation will help us understand the nature of this WAR. Who are engaged in this war and what happens to those that are part of this WAR.
Putting all the verses together we can find the most important element of this war and who are involved.

What is this war about? Armageddon: War between truth and error. Sunday worship vs Sabbath.
Who will be involved in this war? The ENTIRE world.
Who are the two parties involved? Satan who gave power to the BEAST and the 10 Kings. Jesus Christ, the Lamb and His armies.
How will the entire world be convinced and agree to join in this WAR? By means of miracles, powers, lying signs and wonders.
What will the enemies do to the people of God during this war? For them to receive a MARK. Persecute: saints cannot buy and sell, ultimate punishment is DEATH.
Who will come victorious in this war? Lamb and His armies who will stand for the truth whether they lose their life and find it again in 1st resurrection or remain alive to experience the time of trouble.
What will happen to the enemies? They will face the battle of the great day of God Almighty who will smite them with plagues and they will be subdued or go to perdition then they will be destroyed by the brightness of the coming of Jesus (fire and brimstone). If during Sunday law they afflict and smite the saints, in the battle of the great day of God, they will be smitten, double unto her double of what she did. All the wicked (under the kingdom of the 10 toes) will experience the winepress of God when He will start to tread it. (Revelation 19:15) Then after 1000 years, all the wicked will be resurrected and ALTOGETHER be destroyed in hellfire (fire and brimstone).

To further breakdown the details of this war, we can see that more chapters from Revelation are actually talking about the same event and war. [download image]

If you look at these verses, we can see the bigger picture of what is about to happen to the whole world. There are similarities and the elements involved in these verses will help us understand that these point to the same main event or conflict that we are about to face. The warning of the 3rd angel found in Rev 14 is slowly being introduced and made clear by the next verses as like Rev 16 when John saw in vision what happened when the wicked are GATHERED together and go through the Battle of God Almighty which is during the plagues. Then Rev 17 tells us of the same thing where the whole world unitedly GATHERED to make war against the armies of Jesus as seen by John in the vision in Rev 19. If you notice the table, the elements mentioned are getting to be more specific as the chapters move higher and higher. From Rev 13 which mentions only a few elements, we see 14, 16 and 17 tells us more elements until Rev 19 has almost every element mentioned. We can clearly see that the war that we are about to face in Rev 14 is the same war as in 16, 17 and 19. Same actors, enemies, outcomes and results of this war. The main war that we are about to face before probation is clear. It is the one hour with the beast in which the world will unitedly enforce the false day of worship in order to gather as many armies as they can, while God is also during this time gathering His armies. They will fight, stand for the truth and will not love their lives unto death. Whether they do or live, their loyalty is to the CREATOR.

Another note to add, if you look at the 7 heads, they rose to power while probation is still open. The persecuting 5th head (papacy in her glory years 538ad-1798ad), which rose to power and killed millions of saints, is the same head that was wounded to death when the pope was captured and taken away as the (6th head), but then the (7th head) would be healed again in 1929 through the Lateran Treaty, thus this 7th beast/head rises to power as it gains help from the second beast (America) and it will be for a short space rule as we see today but not fully cleaving as Daniel 2 proclaims, until Satan then appears and brings out the global one mind unity the 8th beast power that will only rise for one hour with the beast to kill all who will not worship the beast and his image. All the rising of the earthly powers must happen before Michael STANDS UP and ends the investigative judgment through the closing of probation when all cases have been decided for heaven or eternal separation from God. Again, the GLOBAL UNITY, one mind, 8th beast, Sunday worship death decree system, must all happen while probation is open and not AFTER when probation is close! Their global unity is thus then usless!!! When Michael stands up, plagues will start to fall and this is the battle of the great day of God Almighty where he will smite the nations for their rebellion. They failed the test, they were unprepared, they rejected the latter rain message and took their place with Satan, worshipped him as God and thus they received the Sunday law Mark of the Beast.

VATICAN ADMITS SUNDAY IS THEIR MARK!
"Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change (Saturday Sabbath to Sunday) was her act... And the act is a MARK of her ecclesiastical authority in religious things." H.F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons. Nov. 11, 1895

"Sunday is our MARK of authority. . .the church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact" Catholic Record of London, Ontario Sept 1,1923.

Next, Some claim the following:


The word "dried up" is also translated as ripened in Strongs #3583. Rev 17:15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. It is evident that the one hour with the beast does not happen before the plagues, for the kings of the earth will unite when people are ripened to execute their wicked agenda against God and His chosen people.

What they do not understand is the ripening of the wicked in the 6th plague is not that they can execute a UNIVERSAL unity, but that they are ripened for utter destruction. Like dried leaves they are ready and suitable to be burnt and not to be useful for anything. Let us try to define each word that is used for the meaning of “dried up”. Also take note, the meaning of dried up is not just "ripened". There are other meaning for the word "dried up". For seekers of truth, every meaning must be considered to be able to discern which meaning fits the best and is appropriate.

3583  xeraino  xay-rah'-ee-no
from 3584; to desiccate; by implication, to shrivel, to mature:-- dry up, pine away, be ripe, wither (away).

Desiccate - : >to dry up : dehydrate <https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/dehydrate> : to drain of emotional or intellectual vitality <https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/vitality>

Shrivel to Mature - : to draw into wrinkles especially with a loss of moisture
2a : to become reduced to inanition, helplessness, or inefficiency
inanition - exhaustion caused by lack of nourishment: (oxford dictionary)

Dry up - : to cut off the supply of

Pine away - to become thin and weak because of sadness or loss
To lapse into a period of intense depression or melancholy due to one's longing for or grief over someone or something. (www.thefreedictionary.com)

Wither (away) - : to become dry and sapless especially : to shrivel from or as if from loss of bodily moisture 2 >: to lose vitality, force, or freshness

Looking at these meanings, what can the wicked do in the 6th plague if these are the terms used to describe their condition? If there is a time that they can unite GLOBALLY TO execute their wicked plans against the saints of God, it is before they become exhausted, dehydrated, sapless, with no vitality and force.
Also, every plague is a punishment. If 6th plague is a Global movement, what is their punishment in the 6th plague considering they can still execute a GLOBAL movement? It is not possible. 6th plague is a punishment for them. All the wicked are dried up. Plague 1 to 5 are punishments and plague 6 is not an exemption. Are you telling me that in plague 1 to 5, the wicked receive a punishment while plague 6 they are not punished but are able to execute a decree then plague 7 they are utterly destroyed? Why is the enemy downplaying plague 6? It is simple, they can't see that John was taken in vision and it was revealed to him why all the wicked are dried up in the sixth plague and could no longer support Babylon. It is because they killed up and dried up the righteous before probation closed. What they did prior to the plagues, God gives it back to them in the plagues. Obediah 1:15; Revelation 18:6.
Also, some have reasoned that:


"the wicked wont die until Christ comes back, the wicked will still gather together during the 6th plague thats why the river euphrates was dried up, so the people are gathering as one and then Revelation 17:12-16  is during the 6th plague, that was the only time they were given power." -

IF the support for Babylon Global empire has dried up, how can they gather as one with the Beast (Babylon - Mother of harlots) to support her for a Global War movement? This is confusion. It's either they support her or not! So, will God really plague them with inability to anymore support Babylon or is God lying? Where will they get the power to gather as one when ALL the wicked are dried up? This doctrine of gathering as ONE in the 6th plague contradicts the Word of God and is just merely a personal opinion that has caused confusion but we all know thus saith the Lord that His words do not contradict each other.

Consider other verses that uses the same word as dried up that means to wither away.

John 15:6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast [them] into the fire, and they are burned.  

withered - 3583  xeraino

We can see that the wicked who did not abide in Christ, will receive the plagues and in the 6th plague, they are so withered away that the next event they will partake in is the last plague which ends up burning them all. During this time, they are useful only for burning and not for any global unity movement to enforce some decree or law. If they were to be useful for any movement, it would be when probation is still open for they were not punished yet by then.

The application for the word "dried up" occurs 16 times in the Bible and here are some verses to help us understand the description of Plague #6 and how people must look and act like during this time.

Matthew 13:6 "And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away."

Luke 8:6 And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.

Matthew 21:19-20 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! (withered away as a result of the "curse" - Mark 11:21). When the 6th angel pours out the vial to the river (water = people) so that the people will dry up, how soon will it happen? It will happen RIGHT AWAY. The people will wither away . That is the plague that they will receive. Now, they cannot support Babylon. They're cursed like the fig tree and they withered right away.

Mark 3:1 "And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand." The withered hand of this man was healed by Jesus on the Sabbath day. It means, the hand that was withered was sick. Plague #6 is a sickness designed to punish them not to allow them to UNITE globally to execute an order.

Mark 5:29 "And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in [her] body that she was healed of that plague." The cause of her sickness is the bleeding or the nonstop flow of blood. When Jesus healed her, the bleeding stop. The blood was stopped from flowing. It was contained and controlled to not harm her or make her sick anymore. As like this, in the 6th plague the wicked's support to Babylon is "contained" or "stopped" because the people are dried up unable to unite.

Mark 9:18 "And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not." The boy that was terrorized by the demons experienced physical torments and as a result, he drieth up or pineth away. He becomes weak and experienced loss of energy. We can see this in many demon possession wherein the victim becomes physically weak after a spiritual attack.

James 1:11 "For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways." 1 Peter 1:24 For all flesh [is] as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:"

Imagine the wicked that will go through the plagues from 1 to 5 including the scorching heat of the sun, as like this verse, the wicked will wither away like the grasses under the burning heat and once grasses wither away, flowers will fall too. This is the plague that the Lord will give to them and you can imagine their condition when this plague happens.

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." This is the only verse in the Bible that defines the word "dried up" as being ripe. Of all the meaning for "dried up", ripen is what these others who made false claims about us will use. They did not use the pineth away or the lack of moisture or the other meaning of dried up. They only found one meaning that will fit their belief on the one hour with the beast. What did they say regarding the wicked being ripe on plague 6? Does it make it appear that plague 6 is a plague punishing the wicked? This is how they apply the word "ripe".

Also this quote was being used in thinking they proved their case to be true:

"The plagues of Egypt, and the deliverance of ancient Israel from bondage, clearly shadow forth the seven last plagues, and the deliverance of the saints." -(WLF page 3)

This quote does not say that the plagues of Egypt and the deliverance of ancient Israel from bondage is a COPY (exact image) of the seven last plagues and the deliverance of the saints. It just says a “shadow”. We all know what color a shadow is. A shadow won’t even show you what the exact details of an image. You can see a shape and a resemblance but not a clear picture of what an image is about. See some verses that tell about a “shadow” and the meaning of this word.

Hebrew 10:1 - For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.

Shadow: 4639  skia  (skee'-ah)
"shade" or a shadow (literally or figuratively (darkness of error or an adumbration)):-- shadow.
Adumbration - to produce a faint image or resemblance of; to outline or sketch

The verse itself tells us that a shadow is not the very image. It is just a resemblance. In fact, the color of a shadow is dark. It does not tell you the clear picture or image of something but just a faint outline.

How can the plagues and deliverance of Israel from bondage in Egypt be 100% in like manner of that of the seven last plagues and the deliverance of the saints? Especially when the Bible clearly says that the seven last plagues, the time of trouble is like no other time this world has ever witnessed. Daniel 12:1.  It just means that these two events have similarities yet not 100% alike. We can take a list of their similarities and differences and see if there are more similarities or differences?

DIFFERENCES

 

Plagues in Egypt - not global (only in Egypt)

7 Plagues - global (entire World)

1

The Hebrews were saved from the angel of death by the blood of an animal on the posts of their homes. This marking or sealing was done at the last plague. Ex 12:23

The 144,000 are sealed by the Holy Spirit in their faith and obedience to the commandments of God. They were sealed before plague #1 falls.

2

The plagues in Egypt were 10. Punishment: a specific kingdom or nation

The plagues after probation is 7. Punishment: 10 toes or whole world who are alive

3

Exodus 7:17 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. 

In the 7 plagues, there is no visible human leaders like Moses and Aaron that will smite a rod into the river or ocean in order for the water to turn to blood. The plagues will come from the mouth or word of God which is the sword that He will speak into the vial of His wrath which will be poured out by the angel at His command. There is no need for a human agent in order for each plague to happen.

4

Exodus 7:24 And all the Egyptians digged round about the river for water to drink; for they could not drink of the water of the river. 

The wicked may try to dig for water but the word says the fountains of water will also turn to blood.  Rev 16:4

5

Exodus 7:25 And seven days were fulfilled, after that the LORD had smitten the river. 

The Bible does not reveal as to how long will the plague 2 and 3 last while in Egypt it lasted 7 days.

6

The people of God were in slavery in Egypt during the plagues.

The saints of God in the 7 plagues will not be in bondage to the world but have sealed their destiny for eternal life.

7

Exodus 8:2 And if thou refuse to let [them] go, behold, I will smite all thy borders with frogs: 

7 plagues do not include frogs

8

Exodus 8:8 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, Entreat the LORD, that he may take away the frogs from me, and from my people; and I will let the people go, that they may do sacrifice unto the LORD.    Entreat 6279  `athar  a(w-thar') to burn incense in worship, i.e. intercede (reciprocally, listen to prayer):--intreat, (make) pray(-er).

The wicked will not entreat the Lord instead, they will blaspheme Him. Revelation 16:11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.    Blaspheme - 987  blasphemeo  (blas-fay-meh'-o) to vilify; specially, to speak impiously:--(speak) blaspheme(-er, -mously, -my), defame, rail on, revile, speak evil.

9

Exodus 8:11,13 And the frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy houses, and from thy servants, and from thy people; they shall remain in the river only. And the LORD did according to the word of Moses; and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the villages, and out of the fields.  

The plagues cannot be modified. When it hits the wicked, it is without mixture and cannot be far from them but that they will suffer utterly.

10

Exodus 8:29 And Moses said, Behold, I go out from thee, and I will entreat the LORD that the swarms [of flies] may depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people, to morrow: but let not Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more in not letting the people go to sacrifice to the LORD. 

The 144,000 will not ask God to remove the plagues from the land.

11

Exodus 9:3 Behold, the hand of the LORD is upon thy cattle which [is] in the field, upon the horses, upon the asses, upon the camels, upon the oxen, and upon the sheep: [there shall be] a very grievous murrain. 

The wicked people who repented died in the plagues.

12

Exodus 9:5 the LORD appointed a set time, saying, To morrow the LORD shall do this thing in the land. 

There is no announcement as to when a certain plague will fall.

13

Moses had a say regarding what the plagues will be as God placed it in his heart to utter His words. Exodus 9:33

God spoke his 7 last plagues to smite the nations and no man had a say in it, not even the angels. Rev 19:15 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. 

14

Exodus 10:22 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days: 

The darkness in 5th plague is not clear as to how many days while in Egypt it was pronounced to happen for 3 days.

15

Exodus 10:28 And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to thyself, see my face no more; for in [that] day thou seest my face thou shalt die.    Pharaoh pronounced a decree to kill Moses during plagues. He did not pronounce any death decree before plagues started. Take note, during the plagues in Egypt, where they were able to make a decree, is only because these plagues are not similar to the ones of Revelation 16. Pharaoh can still rest from the plagues. They are not suffering day and night.

The death decree pronounced against the saints will produce 7 last plagues when probation closes. The 7 last plagues are direct result and punishment towards the wicked for what they had done to the saints before probation was closed. Therefore, the death decree is pronounced BEFORE plagues when wicked can still kill.  The seven last plagues will utterly make the wicked suffer and there will be no rest for them day and night.

16

During the plagues in Egypt, Pharaoh entreated Moses and Aaron to stop the plagues and his requests were answered.

In the 7 last plagues, the wicked will be looking for truth but there will be famine for the Word. Amos 8:12

17

Pharaoh and his armies pursued the Israelites after all the 10 plagues happened. Exodus 14:10

After the 7 plagues, no pursuing after the saints can happen because the saints will already have been raptured into the clouds and all wicked will have already been destroyed by the brightness of His coming.

18

After the Israelites safely crossed the red sea, they did not immediately reach the promised land but wandered in the wilderness for 40 years murmuring and complaining against Moses. Numbers 32:13

Deliverance of the saints after 7th plague immediately ends in New Jerusalem and for 1000 years will reign with Christ. Revelation 20:4

19

Not all Israelites entered the Promised Land. The rest were consumed by the anger of the Lord. Numbers 32:13

All the saints who experienced the 7 last plagues will make it to the City of God. Revelation 21:3

20

Pharaoh threatened Moses of death (not the entire Israelites) DURING the plagues. Exodus 20:28.

Beast and 10 kings will execute a death penalty (against ALL who refuses the mark) Rev 13:15, before the plagues, during Sunday Law that will legally kill the martyred saints Rev 20:4. What they will do during the plagues to try to kill anyone is not a special decree made against the 144,000 DURING the plagues or before the plagues. Thus saith the Lord, there is only "one" death decree written against those who refuse to receive the mark. Revelation 13:15

21

Pharaoh and his kingdom had a few times ability to rest from the plagues. The kingdom was still full functional and powerful when plagues would stop for certain days.

One year of recompenses and vengeance and the WICKED kingdom of 10 toes are suffering not just for certain days but EVERYDAY. The wrath of God in the 7 last plagues is without mixture (Rev 14:10) while that of Pharaoh in Egypt is clearly with mixture of mercy and grace.

If you compare the similarities and differences, there are more differences than similarities, so, how can one use a supposed to be inspired writing and applied it to the 7 last plagues as a replica of what is going to happen? This is absolutely impossible for the word "shadow" is just but a faint representation of what the image is about.

This is also being said:

Pharaoh and the Egyptians fled to pursue the Israelites as they began their journey to the promise land. The sequence of events will be the same when most of the plagues has already been taken place before the New World Order. The 10 kings and the beast will unite to hunt the 144,000 chosen people of God.

Based on the quote from Words to the Little Flock, they now claim that both events (journey of Israelites and 144,000) will have the same sequence. Let us see the sequence of events of the journeyings of the Israelites to Promised Land. If we put the events together and make both happen at the same sequence, here is what it looks like: [download image]

If you look at the image, Pharaoh and Egyptians did not pursue the Israelites not until all the plagues have happened, yet the one hour with the beast pursuing the saints happens when plagues are not yet done? If both events are the same, then the pursuing of the wicked against the 144,000 MUST happen after 7th plague or when all plagues are done just like in Egypt.

After Israelites have crossed the Red Sea, they did not immediately enter the Promised Land. They wandered sinning in the wilderness while after the saints are delivered, (144,000 and all the resurrected saints)they will be raptured into the Heavenly Promised Land. When probation has closed, NO saints can commit sin since they have already sealed their destiny for eternal life. Yet in the experience of Israelites, some they did sin in the wilderness and ended up being destroyed and consumed and were never able to enter the Promised Land.

But we all know that after the voice of deliverance in the 7th plague, when Jesus appears, rapture will happen and all the saints will be welcomed into the Heavenly Promised Land.

CLAIM #5 During 7 last plagues, the wicked are suffering so much that it is impossible for them to unite and enforce any decree

It is important to really understand what the purpose behind the plagues and what happens to the wicked who will receive the plagues.

Who will receive the plagues: Those who have received the mark of the beast.
14:9        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, 
14:10    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: 

How intense is this period:
Revelation  14:9 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,  14:10 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:  14:11 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. 

Those who will received the mark of the beast will experience the purpose behind the plagues, which is the wrath of God sounding off and pouring out upon a rebellious unrepentant people who do the works of the devil. The Word of God tells us they are so bad that the wicked will have no rest day and night. They will suffer day and night. They did this to us and it will be returned to them. This wrath is without mixture for the wicked, but for the 144,000 saints of God (Revelation 7 and 14) are sealed and are protected, thus no harm will plague them and nothing will harm them. In fact, the wicked will fall down at your feet and worship you. 

Revelation  3:9   - Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 

Plus the saints will rejoice at their destruction and the Lord will wash His feet in their blood.

Psalms 58:10 - The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked. 

Thus, there is no global unity during the plagues for the wicked. This is not their time to unite and do their evil plans. They are to suffering so greatly as a time that has never been, a time of trouble for the wicked this world has never seen (Daniel 12:1). Revelation 18 is the description of the suffering of the wicked.

CLAIM #6 During 7 last plagues, Christ is already coming but not showing Himself to the people.

Again, there is absolutely zero proof that we ever preached such things that during the plagues that Christ is hiding Himself somewhere and not showing himself to the people until the 7th plague. This is absolutely ridiculous and so much error. We believe as per the Bible that Jesus will CLOSE Probation, place the sins upon the scapegoat, exchange His priestly robe for His Robe of vengeance to then depart from heaven and will appear at the end of the seventh plague when the brightness of His coming is seen by all who are alive at that time and those who will be resurrected in the special resurrection and for the resurrection time of the righteous dead, which all the righteous will thus be raptured into the New Jerusalem. 1 Thess 4:16-17. At the end of the seventh plague this is called the appearing of Christ, which only takes place after He left the 3rd heaven location. He must leave the 3rd heaven in order to appear at the end of the seventh plague. Just like if someone needs to go to the store, common sense tells us that one must leave and go to the store and when they arrive they have appeared; same simple principle. So, Christ will show Himself in the clouds at the end of 7th plague. Nowhere did we preach that during plagues he will be hiding somewhere to appear at the end of the 7th plague. He will leave heaven after probation closes then He will appear at the end of the 7th plague. The Bible said that He will come to punish the wicked.

Isaiah 35:4 Say to them [that are] of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come [with] vengeance, [even] God [with] a recompensehe will come and save you. 

When is the day of the Lord’s vengeance?
Isaiah 34:2,8 For the indignation of the LORD [is] upon all nations, and [his] fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter.  For [it is] the day of the LORD's vengeance, [and] the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion.

More about 2nd coming, click Here.

CLAIM #7 The start of 2nd coming is when He put on His kingly Robe.

When Michael shall stand up (Daniel 12:1), He is coming to do what?
1. To recompense His enemies (Isaiah 26:21; 34:2, 8), then what?
2. To resurrect the living saints (1 Thessalonians 4:16), then what?
3. To rapture the saints to the City of God (1 Thessalonians 4:17), then what?
 4. 1000 Years of reigning with Christ (Rev 20:4), then what?
5. To situate the New Jerusalem to Mount of Olives, then what?
6. To execute the final judgment to the wicked in hellfire (Rev 20)

There are many events that point to His coming. His appearing will happen at the end of plague #7. One must leave in order to appear somewhere. That is why common sense would tell you that His coming would happen during the year of His outpouring of His wrath and then His appearing will take place at the end of the outpouring of His wrath to fulfill the rest of the prophecies that are mentioned to transpire at His appearing, very simple to understand.

When Jesus is done with His work in the Most Holy Place, the 7 plagues will start to fall. Nothing can stop the plagues when the Mediator has left the Most Holy Place. When the Creator closes probation the 4 winds will be released and time of trouble will start – God’s wrath is thus punishing the wicked and destroying them in that year of His wrath. Christ is punishing His enemies with the 7 plagues, which again will start at the close of probation, but He will not descend to earth yet. While the plagues are falling, Jesus has a work to do in the heavenly sanctuary. He still has His priestly attire on. He needs to pass to the Holy Place and into the courtyard to transfer the sins to Satan which is represented by the scapegoat, which on earth the 144,000 are leading this scapegoat to the land of forgetfulness. After Christ is done transferring the sins to Satan, then He will exchange His priestly attire to His KINGLY robes of vengeance, and thus will descend to earth and appear in the clouds to rapture the saints at the end of the 7th plague. Why at the end of the plagues? No but the 144,000 will venture through the seven last plague (Revelation 7, 14, 16).

Nowhere did we preach that Jesus is descending to earth or that the 2nd appearing happens right when He stands up from Most Holy Place.

For those who believe that Ellen White is a prophetess:
Then I saw Jesus lay off his priestly attire, and clothe himself with his most kingly robes—upon his head were many crowns, a crown within a crown—and surrounded by the angelic host, he left heaven. The plagues were falling upon the inhabitants of the earth. Some were denouncing God, and cursing him. Others rushed to the people of God, and begged to be taught how they should escape the judgments of God. But the saints had nothing for them. The last tear for sinners had been shed, the last agonizing prayer offered, the last burden had been borne. The sweet voice of mercy was no more to invite them. The last note of warning had been given. When the saints, and all heaven were interested for their salvation, they had no interest for themselves. Life and death had been set before them. Many desired life; but did not make any effort to obtain it. They did not choose life, and now there was no atoning blood to cleanse the sinner. No compassionate Saviour to plead for them, and cry, Spare, spare the sinner a little longer. All heaven had united with Jesus, as they heard the fearful words, It is done, It is finished. The plan of salvation had been accomplished. But few had chosen to accept the plan. And as mercy’s sweet voice died away, a fearfulness and horror seized them. With terrible distinctness they hear, Too late! too late! {1SG 199.1}

This quote is clearly telling us that when Jesus puts on His Kingly robe, while plagues are falling, He will leave heaven. We cannot assume that He will descend right when plagues start to fall. Common sense would tell us that He will start to descend when His priestly work is done in the 3rd heaven, then Christ will leave when His priestly work is done, and then He will appear at the end of the 7th plague! 

There is also no timing as to when He will finish transferring the sins to Satan so that He can change His priestly robe to kingly robe. These things are hidden from our knowledge. What we know is that when Michael stands up, probation closes, 4 winds are released to hurt the earth, plagues will fall thus fall while Jesus is also transferring the sins to Satan and after that, then Christ will appear at the end of the 7th plague to fulfill the rest of the prophecies.

CLAIM #8 Death Decree Before the Plagues, During Sunday Law

As we are living in the last days, many can see how there is a storm brewing in the distance. Babylon and her armies are preparing with the merchants of the earth to enforce their Sunday worship decree upon the world, which pays homage to the authority of the Pope’s. This Sunday law decree to worship Satan through the office of Popery will first begin in America (Second Beast), then in due season, at the appointed time, when God will allow, Satan will appear to this world as the greatest pretender this world has ever come to know. In all his beauty he will appear before this world that no mortal eyes have laid their eyes on such beauty. This marvelous working of Satan will tempt men away from their allegiance to God in their obedience to Him through the keeping of the Ten Commandments. After Satan has tempted the world through offerings of great worldly blessings to worship him on Sunday, he will then point to the calamities falling upon the world that in order to stop them the world must go to church on Sunday or die, but before this global Sunday law death decree takes place, the world must see it take place in the very Beast (America), which they have loved and desired to be like. Once they see how the second beast is taken down and removed, thus bringing in the Vatican global Socialist order of Sunday laws. So, many would ask, where is this death decree found in the Scriptures for these last days? Simple, the death decree recorded in the Bible for those who do not worship the beast and his image is found in Revelation 13:15.

Revelation 13:15 - 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. 

In other words, they will enforce Sunday laws through a buy and sell economic system that will bring prosperity to those who will comply and those who do not comply will not be able to buy and sell, or participate in the coming global world economy (Revelation 13:17 - And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.) unless they have the mark of Sunday law agreement in their mind. How does the mark of Sunday law get into the mind? By the individual souls agreeing to man’s laws and placing it above God’s law, and those who do not put Sunday laws above God’s 4th Commandment, which is His Seventh Day Sabbath Commandment, which Christ said to especially REMEMBER, then all should be killed who will not worship the image of the beast (Rome’s Baal Sun-worship Sunday law).

What is the mark of the beast? Or, in other words, what is the MARK of Rome?

"Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change (Saturday Sabbath to Sunday) was her act... And the act is a MARK of her ecclesiastical authority in religious things." H.F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons. Nov. 11, 1895

"Sunday is our MARK of authority. . .the church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact" Catholic Record of London, Ontario Sept 1,1923.

"The Sunday...is purely a creation of the Catholic Church." American Catholic Quarterly Review, January 1883

"Sunday...It is the law of the Catholic Church alone..." American Sentinel (Catholic) June 1893

"The Catholic church," declared Cardinal Gibbons, "by virtue of her divine mission changed the day from Saturday to Sunday." Catholic Mirror Sept. 23 1983. (Official organ of Cardinal Gibbons)

"The Pope is of great authority and power that he can modify, explain, or interpret even divine laws... The Pope can MODIFY divine law, since his power is not of man, But of God, and he acts as vicegerent of God upon earth." -Lucius Ferraris, Prompta Ribliotheca, "Papa," art. 2, translated.

"The authority of the church could therefore not be bound to the authority of the Scriptures, because the Church had changed the Sabbath into Sunday, not by command of Christ, but by its own authority." Canon and Tradition, p. 263

It is very clear what this verse is saying in Revelation 13:15. There is a beast that has an image and those who do not worship that image shall be killed, which we know that this all takes place before probation closes and all have been tested on Sunday laws. No Christians will die after plague 1 drops. The only ones who will die in the plagues and at the brightness of our Lord’s appearing are those who have the mark of the beast, those who have agreed to Sunday worship. So all the world will be called to worship the image or die. But, as we know, those who have the truth, those who are working for the 3 Most Highest powers in heaven will be at war with the dragon, beast and false prophet in this battle of Armageddon between truth and error, thus, there are a few ministries who are confused and claim that this verse is only referring to those who will not worship the image of the beast and not directly the beast itself, not realizing that Satan himself will appear to this world and demand worship or die. But first, we need to study the Bible as it is written, then we will realize that we are to go line upon line, precept upon precept so none are deceived. 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: 

Why do we do this? So we just don’t conclude base on one verse. The enemy loves to read one verse make something out of it, twist things, confuse things, and then draw a final conclusion to their error; in this case when we apply Isaiah 28:10 and read further on, or other portions of the Scriptures you will see that it means something very different.

Now, when we look at the book of Revelation we can see the history of Satan, his order of his system and how it all works together in order that he may be worshipped through his deceptions and institutions that flatter this world through those deceptions of cunning craftiness in order to try to blind the seekers of truth. So, if you look closely, the Dragon is the head of everything, who from day one demanded that he should be like the Most High (Isaiah 14) and to be worshipped in heaven like the Most High, which caused the 3rd part of the angels to fall with him (Revelation 12). Now, when Satan was cast out of heaven and down to the earth, Satan had victory over our first parents in their battle of Armageddon where they were given a choice to serve God in truth and obey, or to follow the lying foe (Satan). They were deceived in that battle and were thus cast out of their paradise where they walked with God. Satan, through his victory, thus set began to set up his kingdom through the likes of Cain where a mark was placed upon him and became the seed for Satan to establish his evils in the earth, just as we see today happening. It was through ancient times down into Babylon and now modern Babylon that Satan has set up through his earthly kingdoms and institutions in those kingdoms the falsehoods that he needs in order to deceive the people into worshipping him through creation on the day of the SUN.  Satan has given his power to the beast of Rome for these last days to bring about his end time work in deceiving the nations. Satan blessed Romanism and the Jews for hanging the very God of heaven and earth on a tree to be murdered. That sealed these two institutions to be the very seed of lies in these last days. Revelation 12:2 - 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. 

Truly, Satan has given power to the first beast, which is very visible today. This same satanic power is going to be exercised by the 2nd beast to bring worship back to the Pope’s of Rome.

"It no longer can be said today that the U.S. is a Protestant country." -Cardinal Strich of Chicago, quoted in Time Magazine, Aug. 5, 1955
They [Catholics] must penetrate wherever possible in the administration of civil affairs... all Catholics should do all in their power to cause the constitution of states, and legislation to be modeled on the principles of the true Church." -Encyclical of Leo XIII.

“The old Protestant culture is about at the end of its rope... Why can't we make the U.S. Catholic in legislation, Catholic in justice, aims and ideals?" -Father F. X. Talbot, editor of America, official Jesuit magazine for the U.S. statement in New York Globe Dec. 14, 1930

So, prophecy tells us that the 2nd beast will have power to give life to the image of the beast, which is done through legislation and causing through force to obey Sunday laws or die. Most churches will follow in Rome’s footsteps because their church is a government agency through their 501c3, c4 or any other government tax free status, or whatever it may be called in your nation. These religious laws are going to be part of the Sunday law worship system in which the penalties are as follows:
1.     Milder measures - no buy and sell (Rev 13:17)
2.     Harder measures - death penalty (Rev 13:15)
History is soon to repeat herself. There is nothing new under the Sun with Rome. But this time it will be on a global scale eventually.

"Every man and woman shall repair in the morning to the divine service and sermons preached upon the Sabbath (Sunday), and in the afternoon to divine service, and catechizing, upon pain for the first fault to lose their provision and the allowance for the whole week following; for the second, to lose the said allowance and also be whipped; and for the third to suffer death."!!! Laws, and Orders, Divine, Politique, & Martial For the Colony in Virginia: first established by Sir Thomas Gates, Knight, Lieutenant - General, the 24th of May, 1610

The dragon is using the first beast, which then uses the 2nd beast, which we can see today that America is Catholic, which then gives power to the image of the beast to enforce their religious laws of SUNday-BAAL worship. Therefore, if you do not worship the image of the beast, you are denying the authority of the dragon, and the 1st beast and the 2nd beast. Even prophecy foretells us that they will all be one mind, one in unity on a global scale to behead ALL who will not report for service on Sunday.

Revelation 17:12, 13 - 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

"The Club [of Rome] had its beginnings in April of 1968, when leaders from ten different countries gathered in Rome...The organization claims to have the solutions for world peace and prosperity...The Club of Rome has been charged with the task of overseeing the regionalization and unification of the entire world...The Club's findings and recommendations are published from time to time in special, highly confidential reports, which are sent to the power-elite to be implemented. On 17 September 1973 the Club released one such report, entitled Regionalized and Adaptive Model of the Global World System... The document reveals that the Club has divided the world into ten political/ economic regions, which it refers to as 'kingdoms.'" - Adaptive Model of the Global

World System
The Ten kings of the ten Kingdoms of the New World Government
Kingdom 1: Canada and the United States of America
Kingdom 2: European Union - Western Europe
Kingdom 3: Japan
Kingdom 4: Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Israel and Pacific Islands
Kingdom 5: Eastern Europe
Kingdom 6: Latin America - Mexico, Central and South America
Kingdom 7: North Africa and the Middle East
Kingdom 8: Central Africa
Kingdom 9: South and Southeast Asia
Kingdom 10: Central Asia

So, when we look at all this, you can clearly see that the image of the beast is all agreed upon by the dragon, 1st beast and 2nd beast and even the merchants of the earth, they are all united as one in this Sunday law worship system, which is very soon going to be implemented through the kings of the earth who will cause ALL to worship on Sunday or die.

Also, the image of the beast’s institutions are not only found in the 2nd beast, but through all parts of the world as we can see very clearly today they are starting to give their agreement to this antichrist system of Sun worship.

We are also forewarned that many will be beheaded during the Sunday laws before probation closes as Revelation 20:4 proclaims, - …[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…

As many of us know, there are thousands of guillotines alone in US soil for that very purpose. You can even find death by guillotines in Obama care, which trump, oddly enough forgot to remove from the people in the USA that he proclaims he loves.

Let us also consider the power of Rome. It has been the practice of Rome that those who refused the demands of the pope suffered death as history proclaims,
"For professing faith contrary to the teachings of the Church of Rome, history records the martyrdom of more then one hundred million people. A million Waldenses and Albigenses [Swiss and French Protestants] perished during a crusade proclaimed by Pope Innocent III in 1208. Beginning from the establishment of the Jesuits in 1540 to 1580, nine hundred thousand were destroyed. One hundred and fifty thousand perished by the Inquisition in thirty years. Within the space of thirty-eight years after the edict of Charles V against the Protestants, fifty thousand persons were hanged, beheaded, or burned alive for heresy. Eighteen thousand more perished during the administration of the Duke of Alva in five and a half years."--Brief Bible Readings, p. 16.
Death is part of Rome’s power. They worship death more than life. It is the work of Satan to kill life through his institutions. This is why you find millions of Bible-owning, commandment keeping Christians dying in the prophesied 1260 years (Revelation 13:7) known as the crusades. Rome used the kings of the earth to force their catholic dogmas and death was part of this punishment, which history is going to repeat herself again and all will die, but the 144,000 who followed the Lamb of God and did not stay in the great apostasy of these churches today (Revelation 14).

Their refusal to surrender the scriptures was an offense that the Papacy could not tolerate. The Papacy was determined to exterminate the heretics from the face of the Earth. The heretic’s greatest offense was that they refused to worship God according to the will of the Pope. For this crime, the heretics suffered every humiliation, insult and torture that man could event: (Fox's Book Of Martyrs)
1) Hanged and their genitals were cut off
2) The mothers were whipped
3) The women's breast were ripped off
4) They were tied up and fried in a large pan
5) Their mouths were sewed shut
6) They were placed into a pot of boiling water
7) Their arms and legs were cut off
8) Some had their eyes bored out

A death decree cannot take place during the plagues because...

  1. Satan knows that he cannot harm the sealed 144,000 living saints. A legal decree to kill the saints doesn’t make sense in this period of time. It can only be applied in the time before probation closes where all the world is to be tested with Sunday laws.
  2. The 7 last plagues period is a time of God’s wrath where He is making war against those have received the mark of the beast. This is not a time for the wicked to counteract the power of the wrath of God without mixture. The wicked's efforts to make war with God and His people is before God punishes them for doing that.
  3. A Sunday law death decree will not wait to be legalized in the plagues 11 months later to kill the saints. We are not living in the days of horseback riding. They can even globalize a decree worldwide overnight as we saw them do with COVID. Once it is set into law they will enforce it. First will be the buy and sell in America, then Satan will appear to globalize it everywhere to cause the world to receive the mark to then only be punished through the plagues of God’s wrath. And when you look at both the buy and sell and then later to have power to kill on a global scale, these are penalties for violators. It is impossible to legalize one without legalizing the lesser first. That is clearly seen in our world today. 

  4. The reason for a death decree is to kill the saints of God who refuse to receive the mark. During this time, the calamities will increase. The wicked will then blame the saints for causing the calamities to to get worse. So, to solve this problem, they must enforce a law before probation closes in order to solve their problem, thus they will have power and they will kill the saints. Milder measure will not work during this time especially those who have prepared their own food supply. These people can survive without participating in the economy for they have their own sources of food. But when death decree comes, their faith will be tested, which again their test takes place before probation closes. You must be tested before you can be rewarded with punishment or eternal life.

  5. The river Euphrates has dried up. All support to Babylon is gone. They especially have no power in the sixth plague to pass any laws and to enforce them through death at this time. The people are dried up and ready to be burned; therefore, all support for global unity is gone during this time. See more details regarding the 6th plague.

  6. A death decree is to weed out the weak Christians and to secure Satan's subject for eternal destruction, which Satan will use a death decree as a tool to scare them of death away from their love towards Christ. Satan is trying to cause them to give up their crowns before probation closes. During the plagues it will be too late because all cases have decided their eternal destiny. There is no need to use death decree during plagues for all the weak Christians because they have already gave up their faith or have become martyrs and were proven to not be weak after all.

  7. During the plagues, the wicked are ALL lawless. There is no need to enforce a law for people who don’t follow laws - they are the lawless and their father is Satan. It is even difficult for wicked to follow laws and decrees today, how much more during the plagues? Truth is truth; thus, the wicked will need no laws in the plagues because there is no more Holy Spirit abiding on the planet but sealed within the 144,000. The Holy Spirit has departed fully from those of the world - Satan’s subjects, which they will turn on each other and hate the whore before plague 4 falls and burns them all up, apart from that remnant who continued to love the whore and repented not of their works (Revelation 16, 17:16 & 18).

Revelation 13:15 is clear; those who will refuse the mark in order to stand with the truth, they will first be tested with the economic buy and sell system and then death as per Revelation 20:4. Whatever method any nation will enforce like the second beast, will be up to them, just as you see how the nations are independently handling the COVID situation of lies. It can be by guns, starvation, vaccines, guillotine, electric chair, or anything that can kill. But regardless, there will be death decree that will be legalized across the world to silence those who will violate the universal religious worship system of the papacy and this happens before plague one falls when probation has closed (Revelation 7:1-5; 22:11, 20:4, 13:15; Daniel 12:1; Jeremiah 8:20), and thus the marking and sealing is done. All cases have been decided for eternity with God or eternally separated from God through the second death (Revelation 20). Heaven is a choice and eternal death is a choice. You either will be found worshiping God through your obedience in keeping the very forth commandment that this world has been taught to forget, or you will worship Satan through man’s laws, whichever you decide will have an outcome in the end. But when plague one falls there will only be death to the wicked for making war against the people of God, thus Christ will make war with them and overcome them for what the wicked had done while probation was open (Revelation 17:14). 

The only time for the wicked to legislate laws is now while probation is open. The only time they can enforce those laws is now while probation is open. When the wrath of God is poured out, all is finished. The legislation and enforcement of Sunday laws upon God’s people is what brings out the plagues. God punishes them for what they did when probation was open. God does not punish them before that happens. He lets them secure their own destiny in evil doing, and then punishes them.  This is how God handled Satan and his followers in heaven, this is how Christ worked with Adam and Eve, this is how Christ worked against the wicked in Noah's days, and Christ will continue to work in like manner. Once Sunday laws have been enforced, once Satan appears to globalize his death decree, once they have killed all heaven bound Christians, once the 144,000 are sealed for the lawless one’s time of trouble, and then the Lord will close probation. He will release the four winds. He will destroy the earth and those that have not the seal of God, but have agreed to the Sunday law mark of the beast. During the seven last plagues the only Christians that are alive are the 144,000 and their bread and water is sure and they cannot be touched by any law, or decree, or any of the wicked.

Truth is truth and when we learn the truth we must repent and turn to that which the Lord reveals in His Word.

CLAIM #9 Events in Esther which prophet and kings supported happens before the plagues during sunday law

One of the methods that Satan loves to use in order to deceive the sleeping souls is to take one Bible verse and build up a doctrine from it, or taking the writings from EGW out of context, which also they have NOT one Biblical support that goes with their claim of confusion. The SDR teachings are of the same method as this. An example of this we can find how they are using SOP to override the Bible through claiming there will be a death decree like in the days of Esther for the last days, but will not be literally valid till almost a year later. In the days of Esther there was a decree to kill the Jews, but it would not be legal until almost a year later; therefore, this SDR apostate church concluded that the death decree in the Sunday law will be passed, but it won’t be legal until 6th plague, WHICH we know at this time the wicked are being destroy and their kingdoms with it.

Revelation 18:8 -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. 

Their support is gone when the wrath of God is being poured out. Where do they get this new-found doctrine from? They get it from the supposed original writings of the Prophetess EGW in PK 605 which says...

“The decree that will finally go forth against the remnant people of God will be very similar to that issued by Ahasuerus against the Jews.” PK 605

It says in this quote that the decree that will be issued against the remnant people of God will be “similar” to the decree issued against the Jews in the days of Esther. Let us remember, it says “similar”. In order to find the similarity, let us dig deeper as to what this decree is all about and what this chapter that this quote is taken from all about. Let us see if this chapter is about a decree that is passed and is valid later or it is actually talking about something different.

Let us pick some very important statements regarding the situation of the people of God during this time when the death decree was issued against them.

During the long years of their exile He had given them many opportunities to return to their allegiance to Him. Some had chosen to listen and to learn; some had found salvation in the midst of affliction. {PK 599.2}

As you can see, the people of God during this time were in exile and God had given them chances to return back to him like what He is doing with His people today all over the earth. He is calling everyone who wanted to heed the invitation to come and be a part of His heavenly kingdom. Some of the Jews during this time went back to their land where they came from while others remained in Medo-Persia. Thus, they remained an exile there and faced a terrible and difficult time under the new king Xerxes the great. It was during the reign of Xerxes that the remnant people there who remained in exile met death face to face as per PK 600.

“In every province, whithersoever the king’s commandment and his decree came, there was great mourning among the Jews, and fasting, and weeping, and wailing; and many lay in sackcloth and ashes.” Esther 4:3.

As we can see, when the death decree claims there was mourning, fasting, weeping and wailing it was the Jews who were experiencing this; not the wicked.  
Now, the SDR church claims that when the death decree is issued, the killing stops. Therefore before the death decree was issued, killings were happening yet during the days of Esther before the death decree was issued, there was no killing yet. This is another contradicting point because then the death decree was issued during the days of Esther, it did not stop any existing killings or martyrdom of Jews at that time.

When the decree was issued, the Jews were crying, weeping and wailing. The SDR church declares when the death decree is issued, martyrdom stops then plague 1 falls. Let us see what the Bible says and find out who is actually suffering, tormented and feeling the pains during the plagues, is it the people of God; or the wicked who received the mark of the beast?

Revelation  14:10 - 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:  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,  18:8 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.

These verses are saying that when plague 1 falls, the wicked starts to suffer, but yet in the teaching of SDR, it looks like the Jews or the saints of God will suffer in the plagues. Their teaching looks like this.

If you look at this, when they say "the killing stops at close of probation when the death decree is issued", it means there is a killing that is already happening, but it stops when the death decree is issued, well, it means that the killings that will happen when probation is still open is not from a death decree ordered by Rome against all those who refuse to worship the beast and his image as prophesied in Revelation 13:15 - 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.  Yet the Bible tells us there is a death decree that will kill those who will refuse and all heaven bound saints of God who will be martyrs will be killed as per Revelation 20:4. But this is not what SDR is preaching. It is clearly not Biblical.

Another reason why this teaching is false is also the fact that when the death decree was issued in the days of Esther, the Jews experienced anguish while during the plagues the 144000 will be hidden by God and provided food and none of the plagues can touch nor terrify them. The plagues are the time for the wicked to suffer not for the children of God who are alive during this time.

Let us get back to the quote where it says, “similar”. Let us take a look at the similarities and it’s fulfillment in the end times.
SIMILARITES

IN THE DAYS OF ESTHER

IN THE END-TIMES

Death decree against the people of God

Death decree against those who refuse to worship the beast and his image. Rev 13:15

It was about not bowing (worship)

It is going to be about worship (Sunday law)

To destroy the Jews

To destroy the people of God

When Haman did not receive the worship he desired, he issued a death decree

A death decree is going to be passed against those who will violate Sunday worship laws. Rev 13:15

Haman cherished bitter hate against Mordecai

Satan is filled with bitter hate against those who do not worship him

“to destroy all the Jews that were throughout the whole kingdom of Ahasuerus, even the people of Mordecai.” Esther 3:6

Rev  13:15             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 decree of the Medes and Persians could not be revoked; { PK 601.1}

The death decree against those who will not bow down to the Sunday laws cannot be revoked

Esther plead to God

The people of God plead to Him

Decree was circulated to all people everywhere

Decree will be circulated worldwide. The 10 kings will agree and unite one hour with the beast. Revelation 17

If there are similarities, there are also differences between the decrees in the days of Esther versus the decree that will go forth before probation closes.

DIFFERENCES

IN THE DAYS OF ESTHER

IN THE END-TIMES

Esther appealed to Xerxes, the earthly king and was granted

The people of God will not appeal to earthly government for these will not stand in favor with them but against them

Mordecai occupied a position under the earthly king after the fact that they were delivered by God when the day appointed came to destroy them

The people of God will not be touched or killed and will not find a seat in government office after they are found to be unharmed by the death issued against them

Earthly king sought to promote their welfare. p 602

No earthly king will seek to promote our welfare during Sunday law because they will have a one mind global unity in support to killing all who will not worship on Sunday.

Esther 9:3 - And all the rulers of the provinces, and the lieutenants, and the deputies, and officers of the king, helped the Jews; because the fear of Mordecai fell upon them.

No earthly ruler will stand in favor with God’s people for when the 10 kings unite, they will all agree to destroy the violators of Sunday law

The king issued a counter decree that they can fight back

The people of God are not told to fight for their lives but to stand in the truth and receive eternal life

Decree has a set date

Rev 13:15 does not say a specific later date as effectivity. The law is spoken and caused or enforced. Martyrs will be killed as prophesied in Rev 20:4.

Also, the enforcement of the death decree during Sunday laws cannot be delayed or be waited upon for a long time because during this time calamities have already increased and so they must act fast in order to stop the calamities for they believe that those who are not yielding to the Sunday laws are the cause of these calamities. Their urgent problem during this time will need an urgent solution.

The death decree did not kill any Jew

The death decree during Sunday laws will kill the rest of the Christian martyrs who will not bow (Rev 20:4) except for 144,000.

THE LEGALITY OF THE DEATH DECREE IS NOT THE ISSUE
The whole point that the SDR church is pushing on this area is regarding the LEGALITY of the death decree issued in the days of Esther, yet if you read the whole chapter of PK that talks about this topic, you cannot find one area in that chapter that emphasizes that when a decree is passed it MUST be legal 11 or 12 months later. If the SDR church wants to apply that principle literally then everything must be literal about that whole decree. It is only a similar decree, thus they misapply the quote and take it out of context. The saints must also literally appeal to the government and the government will literally issue a decree that they can fight back so on and so forth, but it is not possible to apply the decree and the length of time to wait until the decree is legal for these end times test that is coming. Also, there is no other Bible support that once a decree is passed it MUST be legal 11 to 12 months later; it is bogus and it is a tactic to weaken the saints and throw them off their course to the truth.

THE WHOLE ISSUE
The whole issue talked about in this chapter of PK is about THE SUNDAY LAWS and that God’s people who refuse to comply with will also be brought face to face with DEATH, but REMEMBER, we also know that God has promised DELIVERANCE. How? Those who will be part of the 144000 living saints are those who will face the plagues untouched because they will be sealed and none can kill them, which is like in the days of Esther where God preserved His people. Those who will die before probation closes are also going to receive eternal life in the resurrection morning. They too are delivered from the power of eternal death. Though they may rest for a little season yet the reward is coming which is everlasting.

Even the last paragraph of the chapter tells us the meaning of the whole story. It talks about the last great conflict which is the enforcement of the mark of the beast which happens BEFORE probation closes. This last great conflict before probation closes, it is just part of the end time story to the battle of Armageddon or as it has been said, the controversy between truth and error, between Christ and His angels and Satan and his angels. The enforcement of Sunday law is a test and must happen before probation closes. There is no more purpose for an enforcement of Sunday law during the plagues for this is God’s day of wrath, not the wicked’s time to enforce or pronounce validity of any law to kill anyone. And so, what many need to remember is, when probation closes, there is no more second chance because all cases are sealed and destined for heaven or for eternal destruction. The saints have received the seal and are heaven bound and the 144,000 sealed for the plagues is a reward for them to see the Lord's wrath being poured out upon the wicked. They are rejoicing, not fearing of death.

Psalms 58:10 - The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked. 
Proverbs 1:26, 27 - I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;  When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. 
Psalms 52:5,6  - God shall likewise destroy thee for ever, he shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of [thy] dwelling place, and root thee out of the land of the living. Selah.  The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him:

“Persecuting rulers, ministers, and church members will conspire against them. With voice and pen, by boasts, threats, and ridicule, they will seek to overthrow their faith. By false representations and angry appeals, men will stir up the passions of the people. Not having a “Thus saith the Scriptures” to bring against the advocates of the Bible Sabbath, they will resort to oppressive enactments to supply the lack. To secure popularity and patronage, legislators will yield to the demand for Sunday laws. But those who fear God, cannot accept an institution that violates a precept of the Decalogue. On this battlefield will be fought the last great conflict in the controversy between truth and error. And we are not left in doubt as to the issue. Today, as in the days of Esther and Mordecai, the Lord will vindicate His truth and His people. {PK 605.3}

This chapter does not tell us anything about a decree and its future legality. It just simply tells us what God will do with His people when they face death penalty for refusing to accept the mark of the beast. This chapter does not tell us that when Sunday law is enforced, the death decree will be passed and probation will close and plagues will fall. Those who have eyes can see this as truth and can discern that the SDR’s teaching regarding the death decree that will be valid only in the 6th plague is a bold face lie from Satan.

Think about this verses and see how the wicked from plague 1 to 7 find a time to enforce a decree or to surround the saints to try to kill them if thus saith the Lord they will have no rest day nor night.

Revelation 14:9 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, 14:10 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: 14:11 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.

CLAIM #10 Armageddon before the plagues

When we look into the Word of God we can find a “Great Controversy” between Good and evil. We can see a battle between the Word of God, which is Jesus Christ our King and Satan. We can see how Christ has done all He can through the Word of God in showing us the path to His kingdom and the battle that must take place in our lives when we try to walk that path of righteousness to His kingdom. Satan is hard at work to make sure that we will give up our crown of victory and hearken unto his lies.

This intense battle between Christ and His angels and Satan and his angels has us right in the middle of it all and we are all to partake in this battle. We will have to decide to listen and follow the Word of Truth or follow the father of lies, which is Satan (John 8:44). In this battle we must decide which master we will follow, serve and worship. We cannot serve two masters (Matthew 6:24).

In this study we are going to find out the truth about This Great Controversy, this battle called Armageddon, but before we begin, we must lay down one Biblical truth to follow and understand where it says in 2 Peter 1:20 - Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 

Next, when we establish anything as truth, we need 2 to 3 witnesses from the Scriptures to prove that whatever is being said by anyone out there in the world, that it can be verified by the Word of God.
1.     Deuteronomy 19:15 - …at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established. 

2.     2 Corinthians 13:1 - This [is] the third [time] I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.

So, with that said let us start digging into the Word of God in the prophecies for these last days. In order to understand the Battle of Armageddon, we must build up the understanding of where it is being mention in the Book of Revelation. In the book of Revelation 16 is where the 7 last plagues of God’s wrath is found for the last days after probation closes on the world (Revelation 22:11).

When we look at the seven last plagues we can see that it is the justice and the execution of God’s judgment being poured out upon the unrepentant sinners in the last days who had decided to believe in the lies of Satan and fell down to worship him on the venerable day of Sun Worship; hence, SUN-day Worship. This is the purpose as to why this world will receive the 7 last plagues in the last days. There is a cause and effect for this world. If you want to worship Satan through his deceptions on his venerable day of the Sun, thus defiling the law of the seventh day Sabbath of the Lord thy God (Exodus 20:8-11; Revelation 13, 14), all will receive the wrath of God who are living in those days when the Mark of the Beast contest shall go forward and enforced by law to worship the beast and his image of Sun worship.

So, when you look into the 7 last plagues you will find the Lord God of Israel addressing everything that the wicked did to the commandment keeping children of God before probation closed on the world; whatever the wicked did will be added unto them in the wrath of God.  Every plague is a direct result of what the camp of Satan did before probation closed particularly in the war between Sunday worship of Satan which was instituted by men through the Vatican beast and the Sabbath Day of the Lord God (Mark 2:27-28). Here are 3 witnesses from Scripture to support this Biblical understanding…

1.     Obadiah 1:15 - For the day of the LORD [is] near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head. 

2.     Galatians 6:7 - Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 

3.     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. 

So, now let us take a look into the seven last plagues, which will help us understand more about why the battle of Armageddon is mentioned in the 7 last plagues of the sixth plague.

Plagues:
1.     (1st plague) Noisome and Grievous Sore - Revelation 16:2 - And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and [upon] them which worshipped his image. 

Noisome 2556  kakos  kak-os'

 apparently a primary word; worthless (intrinsically, such; whereas 4190 properly refers to effects), i.e. (subjectively) depraved, or (objectively) injurious:--bad, evil, harm, ill, noisome, wicked.

4190  poneros  pon-ay-ros'
from a derivative of 4192; hurtful,

4192  ponos  pon'-os
from the base of 3993; toil, i.e. (by implication) anguish:--pain.

Reason: All the pains the wicked laid upon the saints of God and all their sufferings. And not only did they cause the saints much pain, but they did it unto our Lord too. Matthew 25:40 - …Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done [it] unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done [it] unto me. 

2.     (2nd plague) Seawater of water turned to blood - 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.
3.     (3rd plague) Fountains of water turn to blood - Revelation 16:4 - And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. 

Reason: Revelation 16:6 - For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.

4.     (4th plague) Men scorched with fire by the sun - 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. 

Reason: They love to worship the sun, so God gives the sun; God even turns up the sun’s heat seven-fold hotter than normal to scorch them all for worshipping the creation over the Creator of the creation (Romans 1:25). 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. 

The wicked and unrepentant world has defiled the fourth commandment of God, tore down His memorial of His creative power where we are to keep the Sabbath as a memorial before because of what God has done for us and who He is that we are to worship, love, extol and serve forever (Exodus 20:8-11; Mark 2:27-28). So, because the world has forgotten the fourth commandment which God said specifically to REMEMBER, in the fourth plague He gives them what they loved, served and worshipped - the sun.

5.     (5th plague) Darkness - 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, 

Reason: John 3:19 - And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
Romans 1:25 - 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. 

6.     (6th plague)  Water of River Euphrates Dried up - 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. 

When we look into the 6th plague, we can see a big picture of what is going on and why God gave the wicked this plague, which we can see a lot of symbolism going on here as well that we need to breakdown and understand.

Water - Revelation 17:15 - And he saith unto me, the waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. 

1.     River Euphrates - very big river that flowed into ancient Babylon for water support.

2.     Water of River Euphrates - people (water) who gave their support to Babylon which would dry up in this plague.

Dried up -
3583  xeraino  xay-rah'-ee-no

 from 3584; to desiccate; by implication, to shrivel, to mature:--dry up, pine away, be ripe, wither (away).

Desiccate - dehydrate - loss of vitality
Shrivel/Mature- loss of moisture, exhaustion, helplessness
Dry up - cut off supply
Ripe - mature, fully developed
Pine away - think or weak because of sadness or loss, intense depression and melancholy
Wither away - dry and sapless,

John 15:6 - If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast [them] into the fire, and they are burned. 

The people who once supported the Mother of Harlots (Vatican), which is the “Modern Day Babylon” is now become withered, dry, sapless, helpless, intensely depressed, melancholic, fully developed and ready to be burned and could no longer support Babylon because of this plague. Their support to Babylon is gone; the water of the river is now dried up. All their support was given to the Vatican beast before probation closed to kill the elect of God for not worshipping the beast and His image (Revelation 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20).

Why are the people dried up: Revelation 16:13-16 - 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. 16:14 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.   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.   16:16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. 

The word Armageddon is only found ONCE in the Bible but its application can be seen everywhere in the Bible from the Book of Genesis down to the book of Revelation. In the Strongs concordance we can find…

717  Armageddon  ar-mag-ed-dohn'
of Hebrew origin (2022 and 4023); Armageddon (or Har-Meggiddon), a symbolic name:--Armageddon.

The word Armageddon is based on two words, har and meggido and is a symbolic name and not a literal name.

2022  har  har
a shortened form of 2042; a mountain or range of hills (sometimes used figuratively):--hill (country), mount(-ain), X  promotion.

4023  Mgiddown  meg-id-done'

(Zech. 12 or Mgiddow {meg-id-do'}; from 1413; rendezvous; Megiddon or Megiddo, a place in Palestine:--Megiddo, Megiddon.

So the word Armageddon comes from two words which mean mountain and Megiddo, which is a literal place in Palestine but since the word Armageddon is a symbolic name, this battle cannot be a battle of literal arms, tanks and weapons or else this could only happen in the mountain by Palestine, which today is located in middle east by the Mediterranean sea. So, this battle of Armageddon is another kind of battle being fought that does not involve manmade weapons and what have you.

The only occurrence of the word Armageddon is found in Revelation  16:14 - 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. 

By the description given in this verse, we can see how this battle cannot literally happen in a particular place; therefore, it is not a literal gathering of earthly armies. So first, when we breakdown this verse we can see that this battle involves the kings of the earth, which we know in prophecy are the 10 kings (Revelation 17:12) or “The Club of Rome” where we know the whole world has been divided up into 10 regional kingdoms.

The Ten Kingdoms of the New World Government
Kingdom 1: Canada and the United States of America
Kingdom 2: European Union - Western Europe
Kingdom 3: Japan
Kingdom 4: Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Israel and Pacific Islands
Kingdom 5: Eastern Europe
Kingdom 6: Latin America - Mexico, Central and South America
Kingdom 7: North Africa and the Middle East (Muslims)
Kingdom 8: Central Africa
Kingdom 9: South and Southeast Asia
Kingdom 10: Central Asia

 

Adaptive Model of the Global World System
"The Club [of Rome] had its beginnings in April of 1968, when leaders from ten different countries gathered in Rome...The organization claims to have the solutions for world peace and prosperity...The Club of Rome has been charged with the task of overseeing the regionalization and unification of the entire world...

"The Club's findings and recommendations are published from time to time in special, highly confidential reports, which are sent to the power-elite to be implemented. On 17 September 1973 the Club released one such report, entitled Regionalized and Adaptive Model of the Global World System... The document reveals that the Club has divided the world into ten political/ economic regions, which it refers to as 'kingdoms.'"

So, if this battle of Armageddon was to have the whole world to gather together into one literal place by Middle East, particularly beside the Mediterranean Sea, that place would not literally hold all the people from all over the world. Next, it is impossible to gather the whole world together into one literal place, especially during the time of God’s wrath falling all over the world to destroy all those that are on the four corners of the earth who have rejected the Lord’s salvation. It is very clear that this battle of Armageddon is not literally fought with tanks, bombs and guns, but it is a symbolic battle over souls and what each soul will decide to do for the truth or for the lies, which we will discover this as a fact.

The Bible gives us a very clear understanding as to what this battle of Armageddon is all about and who we are really contending with. It is in the best interest of the enemy of souls to continue to divert the minds of the people away from the truth regarding this battle that we are involved with today. The enemy has always been good at causing others to look into another direction so to deceive and conquer. So, the best application of this battle is the fact that we are contending with what?

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]. 

This battle of Armageddon is all about a spiritual war that every single person has to face when they enter into this world. The Battle of Armageddon is all about the valley of decision that we will have to make between truth and error. Joel 3:14 - Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD [is] near in the valley of decision.

How true it is that this world is contending against an enemy that cannot be seen. Satan, his host of fallen angels and his human instruments continually tempt every soul they can to sin against God (1 John 3:4), through breaking His commandments or not (John 14:15). The main head of this battle is the dragon, the arch-rebel, Satan. In fact, he was the first one to start this battle of Armageddon in 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 cast out with him. 

In this battle the angels that believed Satan in heaven were defeated and were cast out with him for believing the father of lies (John 8:44). The Battle of Armageddon which started in heaven was waged against the Son of God where Satan insinuated evils against Christ. Satan cast contempt upon the law of God, thus they became evil because God is love (1 John 4:8) and His law is what defines true love for God supremely and love for each other, which that statements sums up the Ten Commandments (Matthew 22:37-40).

It was through Satan who worked so hard to turn the angels of God and their allegiance away from Christ, and thus war broke out in heaven. The once faithful angels sealed their eternal destiny with Satan - they were cast out; however, the loyal angels of God stood firm and remained with Christ. Now we must decide what we will do today in this battle.

Next, to further understand this spiritual battle, let us take a few examples recorded in the Bible and secure our witnesses for this as being truth. Let us find out about some people who fought in this spiritual battle and see what their outcome was and the elements involved in their battle. If you take a look at a literal battle in this world, we can see some main elements and what they would be.
1.     At least 2 parties
2.     Motive or point of disagreement
3.     Tactics to win
4.     Equipment or armor to attack and defend
5.     Outcome of the war

In a battle there must be at least two parties involved and they must have a point of disagreement. Both parties will need to utilize some form of tactics and methods and they must use the best equipment or armory in order to attack their enemy and defend their camp. And lastly, an outcome is visible. One party will either win or lose. 

In the spiritual battle, the same principles apply. Satan has to copy what God has created for good in order to deceive, which his tactic is to be a pretender - wolf dressed in sheep's clothing (2 Corinthians 11:13-15). In this battle there are two parties that are formed - the side of God or the side of Satan. The point of disagreement is over the law of God vs the law of Satan who has changed the law of God through the Vatican institution of lies. There are also tactics and methods involved and equipment and tools to use in order to attack and defend each camp and the outcome is also evident and clear.

In this battle of Armageddon, there are only two parties involved and each party will have to decide which side they are going to stand for. In this battle, everyone will be given a chance to decide until the last test comes to them, which in the last days it will be a battle over the 4th commandment to either worship God or Satan. Satan will again disguise himself as he has always done, but in the final test he will proclaim himself to be the Son of God, but he is a deceiver where he will claim the Sabbath of the fourth commandment has been changed.

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. 
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: 
2:9 Even him (Christ), whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 
2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 
2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 
2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.  

And this will all take place in the valley of decision when this global one mind system of Satan's is set up in the plain of the earth to worship him on Sunday or die (Revelation 13, 14, 17 & 20). And when it is enforced by law first in America the second beast where she will exercise all the powers of the first beast (Revelation 13:11-18), everyone will have to decide at that time and in the universal Sunday law that comes from Satan himself, everyone will make up their mind who they will worship, love and serve before probation closes. But in that one hour with the beast (Revelation 17:12-14), in that hour of temptation (Revelation 3:10), everyone in the world will have to decide when Armageddon will reach its climax with Sunday laws; your decision cannot be reversed in that Sunday law battle of Armageddon.

The main point of disagreement in this battle again is over the law of God -vs- the lawless governance of Satan. Different methods are used by Satan in order to win a particular battle; some easy method while some difficult. The main object of this battle is to OVERCOME. The overcomers from the camp of God (those who are walking in the narrow and strait path) will receive eternal life (Revelation itself is full of promises to those who will become overcomers) while those who will decide to be overcome by Satan (those who are walking in the broad road) will also lose eternal life if they fail to repent (Matthew 7 - the two roads).

Let us see some Biblical examples of some battles fought between the two camps - God vs the camp of Satan. The first war that was recorded to have happened was the one in heaven between Michael and Satan. In this battle of Armageddon, we can see some important elements.


Two parties:
Revelation 12:7 - And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 

Michael and His angels vs the dragon and His angels.

Point of disagreement:
Obedience vs Disobedience
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; 
What is sin: 1 John 3:4 - for sin is the transgression of the law

Tactics/Methods:
Satan: Mouth
Lies to deceive: He insinuated to the angels that the government of God is unfair and unjust. He wanted to be like God or even higher than God.

Isaiah 14:13-14 - 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. 

Decision:
Michael and His angels
Psalms 103:20 - Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word. 

Decision
Dragon and his angels
2 Peter 2:4 - For if God spared not the angels that sinned,

Outcome:
Revelation 12:8-9 - And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.  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. 

 

 

Next battle recorded was between Eve and the serpent


Two parties:
Eve vs Satan

Point of disagreement:
Obedience vs Disobedience
Commandment:
Genesis 2:16 - And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. 

Weapon used by Satan
Serpent (Mouth): Genesis 3:4 - And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 
Lies – Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 

Weapon used by Eve
Mouth: Genesis 3:2 - And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 

MUST DECIDE
Decision:
Eve decided to believe the serpent and she was defeated 
Genesis 3:6 - And when the woman saw that the tree [was] good for food, and that it [was] pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make [one] wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 

Outcome:
Romans 5:12 - Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: 

Genesis 3:24 - So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life. 

Earth was cursed
Man and woman were cursed: Genesis 3
Nakedness was revealed: Genesis 3:10 - And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I [was] naked; and I hid myself. 

Serpent was cursed: Genesis 3:14

 

Jesus vs Satan in the Wilderness
Two parties:
Jesus
Matthew 4:1 - Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. 

Satan

Point of disagreement
Obedience vs Disobedience
Satan wanted to be worshipped:
Matthew 4:9 - And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 

Methods/Tactics:
Mouth:
Matthew 4:3 - And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 

Deception:

Presumption:
Matthew 4:5 - Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,  4:6                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’ Methods:
Mouth:
Matthew 4:4 - 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. 

CHOICES:
Jesus: OVERCAME
Matthew 4:10 - 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. 

John 16:33 - These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. 

 

 

One hour with the Beast/Battle of Armageddon

Two parties:
Lamb and His Armies vs Beast and 10 Kings
Revelation 16:14 - 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. 

Revelation 17:12-15 - 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. 

Revelation 19:19 - And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. 

Point of Disagreement:
Obedience vs Disobedience
Revelation 14:7 - Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. 

Law of God (worship Sabbath) vs law of man (Sunday worship)
Revelation 13:16 - 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: 

Mark – Sunday worship
Seal – 7th day sabbath worship – sealed with the Holy Spirit

Weapons and Tools:
Lamb and His armies
Mouth and voice:
Revelation 19:15 - And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword,

Revelation 14:7-9 - Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. 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. 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, 

Armour of GodEphesians 6:11 - Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 

His Armies:
Angels – carried the messages (messengers of God) – Revelation 14:7-9
People of God – messengers of God
Psalms 104:4 - Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire: 

Beast and 10 kings
Mouth:
Revelation 16:13 - 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. 

Mouth - Deception
Dragon – spiritualism (Genesis 3:4 - And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die.)
Ministries today falsely assuring their flock that they are in the right path even if their fruits are showing that they are of Satan. Yet, you shall not surely die, the dragon says through these instruments of deceptions. Smooth preaching for the itching ears. 2 Timothy 4:3 - 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; 

Beast – Sunday sacredness
False prophets – saved by grace no need to keep the law, obey Sunday laws

Mouth – speaks (enacting laws, legislation), cause – enforce laws (Revelation 13:15)

Miracles/Signs/Lying Wonders:
Revelation 16:14 - 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. 

No Buy and Sell:
Revelation 13:17 - And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 

Death:
Revelation 13:15 - 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. 

Revelation 14:13 - And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed [are] the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them. 

Revelation 12:11 - And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 

What does Babylon say today:
"Every man and woman shall repair in the morning to the divine service and sermons preached upon the Sabbath (Sunday), and in the afternoon to divine service, and catechizing, upon pain for the first fault to lose their provision and the allowance for the whole week following; for the second, to lose the said allowance and also be whipped; and for the third to suffer death."!!! - Laws, and Orders, Divine, Politique, & Martial For the Colony in Virginia: first established by Sir Thomas Gates, Knight, Lieutenant - General, the 24th of May, 1610 

GATHERING/HARVEST:
Lamb and His Armies are gathered (harvested) – ready for the barn
Matthew 23:37 - O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, [thou] that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under [her] wings, and ye would not! 

Beast and 10 kings  are also gathered (harvested) – ready for the winepress – wrath of God
Revelation 16:16 - And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. 

Revelation 19:15 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.

When the plagues start to fall, God is also treading the winepress that He has prepared for the wicked who received the mark of the beast.

Outcome:
Lamb and the Saints:
Revelation 17:14 - 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. 

Revelation 12:11 - And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 

Revelation 2:10 - Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast [some] of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. 

Beast and 10 Kings
Revelation 17:16 - 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. 

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 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:  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. 

So, when we look into the Word of God, we can see how this battle called Armageddon is a name given in the Hebrew tongue to describe the spiritual warfare that the children of God have been engaged in, from Genesis to Revelation, which in the English tongue we know it to be called the Great Controversy between Christ and His angels and Satan and his angels. This battle of Armageddon will reach it's climax again in the last days before probation closes. This last, great and terrible battle between Christ and His angels and Satan and his angels will be about who the world is finally going to worship - Christ on His Seventh Day Biblical Seventh Day Sabbath, which He is Lord over -vs- Satan on his manmade SUNday worship, which is a Vatican dogma.

"The Sunday...is purely a creation of the Catholic Church." - American Catholic Quarterly Review, January 1883

"Sunday...It is the law of the Catholic Church alone..." - American Sentinel (Catholic) June 1893

One of the main important points regarding this battle is the use of the "mouth" as a way to gather the two camps. Satan and his armies gather his people using the mouth (3 unclean spirits like frogs). God is also uniting His people through what His "mouth" or His Word said. The 3 angels messages uniting with the angel of Revelation 14 or we know as the loud cry message or the last message of mercy unto the perishing world is the tool by which God gathers His people ttoday until the last great conflict of Sunday law where everyone must decide. What comes from the mouth of the 3 unclean spirits are false doctrines and laws design to contradict or make void the law of God whereas from the mouth of the Lamb and His armies are truthful warnings and pleas by which people will have to decide. Everyone must decide in this battle of Armageddon, are you going to believe what the mouth of the 3 unclean spirits have to say and be marked by the mark of destruction or what the Lamb has to say and be sealed for eternal life?

It is this very Satanic institution who will set up in the plains of the earth, through the power of the kings of the earth, which is funded by the merchants of the earth, which is preached upon by the false teachers and false prophets and accepted by the world who love not the truth, but had pleasure in darkness in accepting the Vatican's Sunday worship Babylonian system of lies, and that those who will not comply shall be put to death (Revelation 20:4, Revelation 13, 14). This entire global world system of the Vatican's they are clearly working together through lying tongues, miracle working, lying wonders, smooth preaching, cunning craftiness, and through "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 Thessalonians 2:10-12

This great deception is going to bring this world to her knees unto the point that they will all agree with Sunday laws, but for the elect of God they will stand firm under the banner of truth and only worship Christ through their keeping of the commandments of Jehovah (Revelation 14:12).

Satan today is building up this strategy through taking away the people's rights until those rights ultimately no longer exist. Satan is purposely using this COVID movement to establish his global control. Satan is having this world become so horrible, full of lies, corruption, unrighteousness, having wars and rumor of wars hit the world scene so that at Satan's own appearing he will look so holy and so righteous where he will proclaim to be the son of god, but he will be a deceiver. He will put a stop to all this global disunity and chaos, thus it will make him appear to be the God of heaven and earth, but the drips of God's wrath will continue, thus Satan must insinuate to the world to worship on SUNDAY or his wrath will continue to pour out upon the inhabitants. Then he will insinuate that the Sabbath keeping sect must be put to death if they want the drips of God's wrath to stop, but it will only get worse for them after they kill the commandment keeping children of God. When probation closes on the world and all cases have been decided, the wrath of God will be poured out through the seven last plagues (Revelation 22:11; 16). The Word of God clearly shows us that after Satan will appear to do his marvelous end time work, then Christ will come and destroy Satan's global one world mind system.

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: 
2:9 [Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 
2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 

This global Sun worship system will first tempt the world as Satan did to Christ in His wilderness of test and then ultimately kill all who will not worship the beast and his image of Sunworship (Matthew 4; Revelation 20, 13, 14). Satan will be the final great instrument to try and deceive the world. The world has for so long believed that Satan is a 2 horned red beast, but what does the Word of God proclaim? 

Ezekiel
28:12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. 
28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone [was] thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. 
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. 
28:15 Thou [wast] perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. 
28:16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. 
28:17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. 
28:18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffic; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. 
28:19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never [shalt] thou [be] any more. 

Just as Satan did in the Garden of Eden, he came with smooth speaking and beauty, just as you see these ministers of unrighteousness today are doing to the world through all their miracle working, through the gospel that appeases the flesh and how to be blessed by the world through riches, etc. Which these flesh loving ministers who stem from the false prophet apostate fallen Protestantism churches, are deceiving the world in how they need to gain the world through their own offerings and loving the world.

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. 

Satan has always worked in the same manner as he always has. He makes appetite for the world look to be so good and desirable, but it is a trap, just as you have seen throughout the entire Bible in this battle of Armageddon. This is why Christ said in 1 John 2:15-17 - Love not the world, neither the things [that are] in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that [is] in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. 

If we are going to love the light of truth over the darkness, we shall walk in the light and remove ourselves from the great apostasy that is taking over the world and blinding them to the point that they cannot understand clear cutting basic truths from Scripture, thus, the world will fulfill the sayings of Revelation 18:3 - 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. 

The world will have their basic God given rights taken away to the point that they will accept the Mark of the Beast through their agreeing with Sunday worship. They will desire the Mark because Satan will give them the world so long as they agree with Sunday laws, which Satan will use COVID, Climate change, chaos, the global desasters and such to bring about his global unity under the deception that we must all attend church for prayer and service to worship God on Sunday sacredness to end all that is going on in the world.

Again, this is all designed to try and bring the whole world together under the guise of doing good for the planet through going to church and becoming one mind Under Sunday worship. Thus, Satan, through the kings of the earth will soon set up a global world economy that unless you have the Mark of the Beast stamped upon your national ID card, you shall no longer participate in the global economy - And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Revelation 13:17.

This coming global Sunday worship system is going to be a complete lockdown for the children of God. This is why also you see in the seven last plagues that God will lockdown Satan and his people from being able to do anything. Just like how Satan filled the entire earth and made the earth a great mountain of his kingdom, which stretched from the four corners of the earth, so Christ will render back and put it down (Revelation 16, 17, 18, 20, 21, 22). Christ kingdom will come, lockdown Satan's just like he did, put him to the side of the pit for 1,000 years and then ultimately destroys it in the battle of Gog and Magog (Revelation 20) where Christ's kingdom will then become a great mountain which will fill the entire earth just as Satan did (Daniel 2:35). This is where the Bible tells us that what Satan did before close of probation (Revelation 7; 22:11), in his one mind empire Sunday worship system where they made war with the Lamb, He then shall overcome them through the out pouring of His seven last plagues. What Satan did before the close of probation, God will render back to Satan in the seven last plagues, thus this is why in the sixth plague God dries up the support of Babylon, 

Dried up -
3583  xeraino  xay-rah'-ee-no

 from 3584; to desiccate; by implication, to shrivel, to mature:--dry up, pine away, be ripe, wither (away).

Desiccate - dehydrate - loss of vitality
Shrivel/Mature- loss of moisture, exhaustion, helplessness
Dry up - cut off supply
Ripe - mature, fully developed
Pine away - think or weak because of sadness or loss, intense depression and melancholy
Wither away - dry and sapless,

(6th plague)  Water of River Euphrates Dried up - 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. 

Many proclaim that this battle Armageddon is only fought in the sixth plague because it is mentioned there, but they all fail to realize that it is only mentioned there in the sixth plague because that plague is what addresses the global world Sunday laws unity that took place before plague one fell upon those who had the mark of the beast (Revelation 16:2). This plague had to be poured out because of their unity they had in there Sunday law mark of the beast system that killed the saints of God.

In this plague God completely dried it up and then allowed these unrepentant men to witness what God has done to Satan's kingdom, which is because of what the wicked had done to God's nation before probation closed. Christ had to behold His nation (the children of God being destroyed on the earth), so God gives it back to them in the sixth plague. You can find the entire description of their pains and sufferings in Revelation 18.
God dries up this global one world mind Sunday worship system of Satan through plagues 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and then breaks them to pieces in the seventh plague and ultimately destroys them and puts the great image of the ten toes to sleep in the dust of the earth for 1,000 years, to thus, only be resurrected again after the 1000 years to be judged and eternally destroyed (Revelation 20; Daniel 2:34).

And this Great Controversy (Armageddon), which started in heaven will continue until Christ destroys the entire image of Daniel 2 after the 1000 years, after the second resurrection of the wicked where both soul and body will burn and burn forever and ever until they are ashes under the souls of our feet (Revelation 20; Malachi 4).

Let us all know that so long as we put on Christ the evil powers that be in this world will never overtake us in this battle of Armageddon that we are all in. We must learn to put on the armor of God so that we can stand in this Great Controversy and come out victorious. We are warned by God that we are to let no man take thy crown (Revelation 3:11).

This great and final battle that is soon to be fought will happen once the kings of the earth have set up in the plains of the earth Sunday worship. All will have to decide what they will do - worship the beast and his Sunday worship image, which pays homage to Satan or worship Christ. Soon lip service will be tested. Whatever we are doing today is sealing our destiny later. If we are learning to obey and follow God today, then we shall do well, but if we are learning to disobey the Lord today, then we shall surely disobey Him in the Sunday law.

Joshua 24:15 - ...choose you this day whom ye will serve...

Here are some quotes regarding the Vatican Beast's and their Sunday worship System...

"This organization proposes in every possible way to aid in preserving Sunday as a civil institution. Our national security requires the active support of all good citizens in the maintenance of our American Sabbath. Sunday laws must be enforced." -Quoted as "principles contained in the Constitution" of the original organization (then called the American Sabbath Union), cited in The Lord's Day Alliance, Twenty fifth Report (1913), p6.

"Encouraged America to exercise its leadership within the international community based on the common moral law [Sunday holiness]." (Address of Pope Benedict XVI to H.E. Mrs. Mary Ann Glendon, New Ambassador of the United States of America to the Holy See, Friday, February 29, 2008.)

On September 7, 1947, Pope Pius XII declared that the time for reflection and planning is past in religious and moral fields and the time for action has arrived. He said that the battle in religious and moral fields hinged on five points: Religious culture, the sanctifying of Sunday, the saving of the Christian family, social justice and loyalty and truthfulness in dealings." (Evening Star (Washington D.C.), Sept. 8, 1947)

"People cannot be sanctified except on Sunday, that Christ transferred Sabbath sacredness to Sunday, that only those who keep Sunday belong to Christ, that only on Sunday does the risen Lord makes himself present among his followers, that only these worship God properly, and that may Sunday regain all its importance." (Letter of Pope Benedict XVI to Card. Francis Arinze on the Occasion of the Study Day in Honour of the 43rd Anniversary of the Promulgation of the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, Sacrosanctum Concilium, From the Vatican, November 27, 2006.)

“Sunday is a day of rest for all workers.” (Address of Pope Benedict XVI to the Italian Christian Workers' Associations (A.C.L.I.), Clementine Hall, Friday, January 27, 2006.)

"Saturday is no longer the worship day of God, only on Sunday can we become part of the body of Christ in the world, only by worshiping on Sunday can we avoid egoistic isolation and instead be united in a great community...a universal community becoming related to everyone in the world." (Meeting with Diocesan Clergy of Aosta, Address of Pope Benedict XVI, Parish Church at Introd (Aosta Valley), Monday, July 25, 2005.)

“Every Sunday is to be dedicated and given to God.” (Mass on the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Homily of Pope Benedict XVI, given in Parish Church of Castel Gandolfo, Monday, August 15, 2005.)

" Only on Sunday can we experience a personal encounter with Christ." (Apostolic Journey of Pope Benedict XVI to Brazil on the Occasion of the Fifth General Conference of the Bishops of Latin America and the Carribbean, Inaugural Session, Address of Pope Benedict XVI, Conference Hall, Shrine of Aparecida, Sunday, May 13, 2007.)

This BEAST admits their Mark is Sunday worship:
"Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change (Saturday Sabbath to Sunday) was her act... And the act is a MARK of her ecclesiastical authority in religious things." H.F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons. Nov. 11, 1895

"Sunday is our MARK of authority. . .the church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact" Catholic Record of London, Ontario Sept 1,1923.

Furthermore, "The Catholic church," declared Cardinal Gibbons, "by virtue of her divine mission changed the day from Saturday to Sunday." Catholic Mirror Sept. 23 1983. (Official organ of Cardinal Gibbons)

 Question - Which is the Sabbath day?
Answer - Saturday is the Sabbath day.
Question - Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?
Answer - We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church, in the Council of Laodicea (A.D. 364), transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday." The Convert's Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, p. 50, 3rd ed.

  "The Bible says, Remember that thou keep holy the Sabbath day. The Catholic church says, No! By my divine power I abolish the Sabbath day, and command you to keep the first day of the week. And lo, the entire civilized world bows down in reverent obedience to the command of the holy Catholic church!" Father Enright, C.S.S.R. of the Redemptoral College, Kansas City, History of the Sabbath, p. 802

"Perhaps the boldest thing, the most revolutionary change the Church ever  did, happened in the first century. The holy day, the Sabbath, was changed  from Saturday to Sunday. "The day of the Lord" was chosen, not from any  direction noted in the Scriptures, but from the Church's sense of its own power .... People who think that the Scriptures should be the sole  authority, should logically become Seventh-day Adventists, and keep Saturday holy." (Saint Catherine Church Sentinel, Algonac, Michigan, May 21, 1995.)

"Sunday is a Catholic institution and its claim to observance can be defended only on Catholic principles .... From beginning to end of Scripture there is not a single passage that warrants the transfer of weekly public worship from the last day of the week to the first." (Catholic Press, Sydney, Australia, August, 1990.)

"The Adventists are the only body of Christians with the Bible as their teacher, who could find no warrant in its pages for the change of day from the seventh to the first. Hence their appellation," Seventh-day Adventists. "They're cardinal principle consists in setting apart Saturday for the exclusive worship of God, in conformity with the positive command of God Himself, repeatedly reiterated in the sacred books of the Old and New testaments, literally kept by the children of Israel for thousands of years to this day, and endorsed by the teaching and practice of the Son of God while on earth." -Rome's Challenge, (Why do Protestants keep Sunday?) page two

"Is not yet too late for Protestants to redeem themselves. Will they do it?... will they indeed take the written word only, the Scripture alone, as their sole authority and their sole standard? Or will they still hold the indefensible, self contradictory, and suicidal doctrine and practice of following the authority of the Catholic church and wear the SIGN of her authority? Will they keep the Sabbath of the Lord, the seventh day, according to Scripture? Or will they keep the Sunday according to the tradition of the Catholic church, -Ibid, page 31.

The Scriptures warn us...

Revelation
14:7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. 
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. 
14:9 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, 
14:10 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: 
14:11 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. 

Who are they that will NOT receive the Mark of the Beast?
Revelation 14:12 - Here is the patience of the saints: here [are] they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. 

Finally brethren may “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you all. Amen.” - Revelation 22:21

 

CLAIM #11 No more buying, no more marrying will no longer happen during plagues because there is no more unity

The reason why there is no buying and marrying during plagues is not that because there is no more global unity, it is because this is a year of punishment and vengeance, a year of war, destruction for the enemy in this battle. They had all their play time and fun in killing God’s people before the plagues during their peace and safety time, but when those plagues fall it is a day/year of God’s wrath which is a time that this world has never seen the like. Daniel 12:1. This is not a year for the wicked to celebrate and enjoy their merry-making as some proclaim and misrepresent the wrath of God like the wicked in the world today claiming that hell will be a place for. Same type of spirit with these ministries who want the wicked to believe the wrath of God is nothing. It is a way to deceive them into thinking that things will not be bad for them when it is a time of gloom and thick darkness of punishment. When the flood came during the days of Noah, the wicked were not able to be given in marriage, buying or selling. In the days of Lot, when the city was destroyed, their buying and selling stopped because they were being punished, so how much more for a time that this world has never seen the like of when those seven last plagues are poured out upon the unrepentant wicked?

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. 

Luke 17:28-30 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. 

 

Probation OPEN

Probation Closed

Plagues to 2nd appearing of Jesus

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. 

They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage,

Until the day that Noe entered into the ark

The flood came and destroyed them all

Luke 17:28-30 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. 

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.

[download image]

When Noah entered the ark, flood destroyed them. When probation will close, the seven last plagues will start their destroying work. It will punish the wicked like no other time before it. Again, same in the days of Lot when Christ and His angels destroyed that city of sin. The day they left the city of Sodom and it was being destroyed, you can see then that probation had happened, they were judged and then destroyed; and thus, it will happen in the same manner in the last days through the outpouring of God’s wrath.

It was when Lot was still in Sodom that the wicked people were celebrating, building, planting and all their normal activities in life were being carried out; but when it rained fire and brimstone, none of them were able to do anything like they did before their probation was over with. Same thing in Noah’s days, when the rain and flood came, how do you think they can possibly be getting married and celebrating when flood came that swept them away and destroyed them?

The evil people were partaking in their celebrations, buying and selling to gratify their desires before the flood, not during the flood or after the flood. It all happened before they were punished, just like it is happening in the world today while probation is open, but when probation is closed, it is too late; they will be found and weighed in the balances.   

Below quote is being used to justify the claim that during the plagues there will still be eating and drinking and giving in marriage.

This is Christ Himself declaring this all through His own Words that are written in the Bible, who knows the end from the beginning. The days of Noah and Lot will be exactly the same pattern when Christ comes, but if someone claims the opposite of what our King has said, they are turning Christ into a liar and they will meet this wrath they are down playing today and they will see with their own eyes and feel with their own flesh the vengeance of the Lord who will repay them all double.  

Yes, the days of Noah and our days will have the same events, but we need to apply these events appropriately. Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, when plagues begin to fall, probation is over with, this starts the year of recompenses, vengeance, judgment and the destruction of the wicked. When Noah entered the ark, it was too late for the wicked to repent. When Lot went out of Sodom, it was too late for the wicked inhabitants to do their merry making and other business in life. When probation closes and seven last plagues begin to fall, it will too late for the wicked to repent – cases are closed. It will not be a year of celebration for the wicked, or a year to execute any global movement to enforce Sunday laws. Nothing will matter at this point because all cases have been decided. There will be no powers on this plant that will be able to do anything when probation closes.

The quote below is being used to claim that there is still marrying and giving in marriage during the plagues. Let us examine carefully if this quote is really talking about the activities of the wicked during plagues or before the plagues.

"Christ has left us here a most important lesson. He does not in his teaching encourage indolence. His example was the opposite of this. Christ was an earnest worker. His life was one of self-denial, diligence, perseverance, industry, and economy. He would lay before us the danger of making eating and drinking paramount. He reveals the result of giving up to indulgence of appetite. The moral powers are enfeebled, so that sin does not appear sinful. Crimes are winked at, and base passions control the minds, until general corruption roots out good principles and impulses, and God is blasphemed. All this is the result of eating and drinking to excess. This is the very condition of things he declares will exist at his second coming. Will men and women be warned? Will they cherish the light? or will they become slaves to appetite and base passions? Christ presents to us something higher to toil for than merely what we shall eat, and what we shall drink, and wherewithal we shall be clothed. Eating and drinking and dressing are carried to such excess that they become crimes, and are one of the marked sins of the last days, and constitute a sign of Christ's soon coming. Time, money, and strength, which are the Lord's, that he has intrusted to us, are wasted in needless superfluities of dress, and luxuries for the perverted appetite, which lessen vitality, and bring suffering and decay. It is impossible to present to God our bodies a living sacrifice, when they are full of corruption and disease by our own sinful indulgence. - Testimony for the Church No.22 p. 54-55 

Look closely at the quote and you will understand what it is really saying, “This is the very condition of things he declares will exist at his second coming.” Down the line it says, “Eating and drinking and dressing are carried to such excess that they become crimes, and are one of the marked sins of the last days, and constitute a sign of Christ's soon coming.” The eating and drinking and dressing to such excesses are just SIGNS of Christ’s soon coming. It is not saying that before Christ is revealed in the clouds while plagues are yet falling, people will be eating, drinking and dressing in excess. “Time, money, and strength, which are the Lord's, that he has entrusted to us, are wasted in needless superfluities of dress, and luxuries for the perverted appetite, which lessen vitality, and bring suffering and decay.” What’s happening in this quote is what is happening today. This is the SIGN that we are in the last days and not some future EVENT that happens when probation is closed. People will be gratifying their own self in pursuit of pleasures as they are now and not when probation closes and the world is being destroyed for their unrepentance. They become lovers of pleasures and not lovers of God before the plagues. 2 Timothy 3:4. The buying and selling to gratify self in pleasure-seeking is happening today and not in the plagues when wicked will be punished and suffering for what they did before the plagues. Who will be able to gratify self in pleasure-seeking when being destroyed and in their sufferings? I never heard of anyone going to the hospital today while after having such pains from a major accident and trying to dress themselves up to look good for someone else so how much more when they are covered in their sores from the plagues? The wickedness that we can see today is the result of men’s unrepentant sinful ways, and this is a SIGN that Christ is coming soon to punish them for not repenting. This condition will continue to exist and when probation will close, how much more their wickedness will become? It will become more and more wicked that even before during the plagues as the Spirit has fully departed from the earth after the four winds are released (Revelation 7:1-4), they will continue to blaspheme God (Revelation 16, 18).

CLAIM # 12 Christ is bringing the plagues with Him

There is absolutely no proof for this claim because it was never stated. We have never preached that Jesus is literally coming and then bringing the plagues with Him. We preached that Jesus Christ will come, but before He appears,which happens at the end of the seventh plague, the plagues have to fall first. When Christ closes probation the plagues will be poured out upon the wicked unrepentant sinners; then Christ will appear at end of plague #7, but before His arrival, He will first “come”, and as He comes the plagues are being poured out.

The word “come” does not mean that He will appear in the clouds to then execute the pouring out of the plagues, or as they say that Christ will bring the plagues with Him while hiding somewhere in the clouds. Bottom-line, the plagues will come from His mouth (Rev 19:15) while Christ is in Heaven and will not need to descend to earth in order for plagues to start falling. When probation closes Jesus is still in heaven (will move out of the Most Holy to courtyard passing the Holy place) where He is finishing up with placing the sins of the people upon the scapegoat (Satan); then He will descend to earth right after He exchanges His priestly attire for His Kingly attire and while these is happening, the plagues are still falling until Christ appears. Furthermore, Christ's angels will be the ones to execute the pouring out of the vials (Rev 16:1) into the earth. Christ speaks it (Rev 19:15) and the vials (Rev 16:1) are poured out one after another in timely manner by the appointed angels. Christ said He will “come” to punish the inhabitants of the earth, and in that year of recompenses or year of the seven last plagues it will happen.

Isaiah 26:21 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.

The Lord cometh out of His place does not mean He needs to literally appear or go to earth and hide somewhere and start punishing the wicked.
Isaiah 35:4 Say to them [that are] of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come [with] vengeance, [even] God [with] a recompense; he will come and save you.

When is the day of the Lord’s vengeance?
Isaiah 34:2,8 For the indignation of the LORD [is] upon all nations, and [his] fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter. For [it is] the day of the LORD's vengeance, [and] the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion.

Revelation 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

The year of recompenses = 7 plagues fall in one year to punish the wicked inhabitants of the earth

the day of God’s vengeance and judgment = a day equals year (Ezekiel 4:6)
We also do not believe in secret rapture. The rapture of the saints at end of plague 7 is not a secret. Every eye of those who will stay alive up to that point or those who will be resurrected will be able to see the Son of man coming. Rev 1:7

CLAIM # 13 There is no third coming

Youtube: The Second Coming Reward

If you understand the purpose why Christ is coming, then you will understand the whole process of the second coming! You will also understand the events that will take place during the second coming and the purpose behind each event that will occur. You will then also begin to realize and see that there is no third coming mentioned anywhere in the Bible, but is another dirty invention of the great deceiver to stirrup confusion. There are some who think that Christ will come back many times, even appearing in the desert, the secret chambers, and then multiple more times after the plagues and the 1000 years as well. Is this truth? No. The Scriptures are very clear about the second coming, when the second coming will take place, all who will be involved, what the purpose is and even the manner in like it will look. When the whole process is done, He is not coming again for the kingdom is already with Him and established in the Earth and Heaven made new. Even some supposed ministries of the Lord suggest that every purpose is a coming of itself, and thus if we were to count them all how many comings of the Lord would that be? Well, the Scriptures are very clear as to what will happen at the Lord's second coming and how it will look, which by using one simple verse it will even expose the idea of a 3rd or 4th or 5th coming as a lie.

Acts
1:6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?
1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.
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.
1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
1:10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
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.

If you look closely, the manner Christ left is the same manner He will return. The steps are seen as this:
1.   First, He was on Earth with His disciples in the Mount of Olives
2.   Next, He was caught up into the clouds and was seen by the disciples
3.   Finally, the cloud took Jesus away from the disciple’s sight and He disappeared

As we all know, He was taken into the Third Heaven or the paradise of God
Mark 16:19 - So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. 

The same place that He went to which is the third heaven is the same origin that He is going to leave from and the same destination that He will arrive which is on earth on Mount Olives

So then when He returns, the process is reversed:
1.     First, from Third heaven He departs
2.     Next, Down to the clouds He will appear to rapture the saints and welcome them to the New Jerusalem - 1000 years Satan will be bound and saints judging the wicked
3.     Finally, after 1000 years, Jesus will judge, destroy the wicked and thus all the saints will occupy the earth made new

The three steps that we have seen when He left is the same steps that will happen when He returns. [download image]

Next, take a look at this comparison of the Biblical 2nd coming and the unbiblical 3rd coming. [download image]

Furthermore, the dream of King Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel chapter 2 reveals to us only ONE time that the stone will smite the feet first and then destroy the whole image. It does not tell or prophesy of another stone that will come to smite the same image smitten by the first stone; or that the first stone which smote the feet will return back to where it came from and then to hit the image again the 2nd time. The stone of the dream represents the kingdom of God which is to come the 2nd time only. The chief cornerstone of that Stone (kingdom) is Jesus Christ Himself.

Matthew 21:42-44 - 21:42 - Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. 

Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner (Jesus Christ): this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?  Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God (stone that smote the feet of the image) shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.  And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it(Stone = Kingdom of God) shall fall, it will grind him to powder. 

So when we break this down we can see that the stone represents the kingdom of God, which Christ is the cornerstone of this kingdom, thus when He comes the 2nd time as Daniel 2:34-35, 45 and all the other verses throughout the Scriptures proclaims, the kingdom of God is not going to depart and go back to where it came from. When Christ comes the second time heaven is coming and the saints will receive their reward, they will judge the wicked that is sleeping in the dust of the earth for 1,000 years where Satan will be bound as well, then when the 1000 years have expired then the Executioner will execute His justice over the wicked and then the stone that smote the image will become a great mountain, and will fill the whole earth (Daniel 2:35). This entire image will turn to powder when the wicked are destroyed in the battle of Gog and Magog. In this battle this is where hellfire proceedeth from God to utterly burn the wicked (Revelation 20; Malachi 4; Daniel 2:34-35, 45). And until that time happens, this stone, which is the kingdom of God, which Christ is the cornerstone of that kingdom will only become a great mountain and will fill the whole Earth after the wicked have been finally destroyed and turned into powder, and then we will walk on their ashes.

Also, every advent or coming is a process. To prove that, look at what happened in the first advent. It was a long process and was completed when the final mission for this coming was fulfilled which was in the cross. See the chart below: [download image]

CLAIM #14 The touching of the ground is where they say the second coming happens

SDR claims we said this, "The touching of the ground is what they say the second coming happens."
First of all, this is another lie. Again, they have no proof from our site where we preach this or any evidence we proclaim this. We never preached that after 1000 years is when Jesus Christ will touch the ground as being his 2nd coming. Christ’s second coming has a process, which begins at the close of probation (Revelation 22:11; Jeremiah 8:20; Daniel 12:1; Revelation 7; Revelation 14; Revelation 16…). I want to make a simple note here so things can be very clear. When we look at Christ's first advent, there we can see His entire floor plan to His work that took place in His first advent. This first advent of Christ lasted over 33 years. And so, in the Lord's Second Advent it will last for more than 1000 years. The Biblical record for this Second Advent has three places of time mentioned, which are as follow...
1. The Plagues
2. 1000 years
3. Satan is loose for a little season

So, in this time frame of the Lord's second coming many things will surely take place. SDR does not understand that Christ's second coming begins when Michael stands up. When Michael stands up then all is finished, there is no more second chance because probation has closed; THEN Jesus begins His second coming. Again, there are many things that will happen at the King's second coming. So, to make things more clear, so that SDR will not be more confused than they already are, here is the Biblical main order of events that will take place which will begin the Second Advent and end the second advent of Christ.
1. Michael Stands up and closes probation (Daniel 12:1, Revelation 22:11, Jeremiah 20:4)
2. Seven days of silence before the wrath of God is poured out like in the days of Noah.. (Revelation 8:1 - And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.)
3. Four winds are released (Revelation 7)
4. First trumpet sounds and first plague falls... Trumpet 2 - Plague 2...PUT THE CHART HERE
5. Christ will appear at the brightness of His coming at the end of the 7 trumpets and 7 last plagues (2 Thessalonians 2:8, 9 Revelation 8:7-11:15 and Revelation 16)
6. The special and the righteous resurrection will take place at the voice of God (John 5:28, 29 - Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. Special Resurrection is Daniel 12:2)
7. Saints meet the Lord in the clouds to receive their reward and Judge the wicked (1 Thessalonians 4:17 - 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. Revelation 20:4 - And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them:)
8. Satan is then bound on earth (hell) (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,)
9. The 1000 years begins at Satan's imprisonment (Revelation 20:2-3)
10. At the end of the 1000 years the wicked will be raised in the second resurrection (Revelation 20:5, 6)
11. The great white throne Judgment takes place for sentencing the wicked (Revelation 20:11-13)
12. Satan is then loosed for a little season to go to the four corners of the earth to deceive the nations once again (Revelation 20:7, 8)
13. The wicked surround the city of God to take the tree of life (Revelation 20:9)
14. Fire then devours the wicked in the battle of Gog and Magog (Revelation 20:9, 14-15)
15. All the wicked are dead, both root and branch burned up to never more exist (Malachi 4)
16. The new heaven and new earth is completed (Revelation 21)
17. Saints walk on the ashes of the wicked (Malachi 4)

So, there are many things that must take place during the second coming of Christ. These are the major events that will take place during the second coming of Christ.

We also do not preach that Jesus will touch the earth when He comes a second time to rapture His saints, nor do we use an edited SOP to preach this belief. We do not support any beliefs or any writings that are not backed up with 2 to 3 Scriptural facts which proves that something is doctrinal sound. Again, if we have no 2 to 3 witnesses to back up what is being said, we have no part with it. It must be rock solid proof that what is being said is supported by the rock solid passages from Scripture. 

The touching of the ground happens after the 1000 years and not before that but this touching of the ground is not the 2nd appearing of Jesus for He already have appeared and have raptured the saints before that.

So, looking into what was just stated, we can see clearly the order of events that we have been sharing because it proclaims it right there in the written Word of God. These passages clearly proclaim that the touching of Jesus on Earth is not before 1000 years but clearly afterwards. When Jesus appears in the clouds to rapture the saints, He does not touch the ground, but stays in the clouds to meet the saints and into the city of New Jerusalem where they will receive their eternal reward and judge the wicked during those 1000 years. Truly, we can see how the atmospheric heaven will be where His throne resides during this time and the earth is His footstool to judge the very earth that has been put under the soles of our feet to be justly judged.
Acts 7:49 - Heaven [is] my throne, and earth [is] my footstool:
Isaiah 66:1 - Thus saith the LORD, The heaven [is] my throne, and the earth [is] my footstool:
Matthew 5:35 - Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool:
