The last great global war is about to begin. Rife with speculation, the audience comes to the production with their team colors already chosen, ready to cheer and certain of victory. On the stage being set up before our eyes, the main protagonists already stand partially hidden in the present mists of historic prophecy, their faces still unclear.
Who are they? What is their contention? Have we already started this last war against the real terror that seeks to destroy humanity?
While the honest answer still remains yes and no, this short book will both surprise and enrage many readers because of erroneous misconceptions. The true enemies are just as present among and within the audience as on the stage. Because they are still walking around earth at the time a great world leader offering moral hope rises to power, millions of Christians will not recognize him as Antichrist. He may seem as one of them, yet his charismatic appeal and apparent economic power will sway the rest of the world, too.
Crisis is quickly coming to western civilization. Besides the growing challenges from a moral and economic implosion from within, external competition for resources and regional security will escalate tensions from without. Sincere Muslim families struggling to survive in a rapidly changing world will be deceived by their leaders once again. Zealots for Allah who sacrifice all in a holy war against a deceptively greedy and morally corrupt culture thought to be Christian will also be duped. A hero proclaimed their Mahdi will say that he seeks to destroy the enemies of Allah. Instead, he will battle to take the global system over for himself. In fact, the common people will lose in the case of either champion’s victory.
Everyone, including Christians and Muslims, will be forced to take sides in the days ahead. The choices to be made will not be clear or rational. We will all be reeling from the ashes of warfare and face the smoky threat of terminal terror. Families will cry out for food amidst a worldwide economic panic caused by the massive impact of failed global financial policies. Most are and will continue to be blinded by the spiritual confusion of materialistic religions holding hands in rebellion against the Creator. With the increased intensity of the moment, no one will know who is on stage or the proper participatory role to play without a program.
This small book is your program. You did not come upon it by chance. Sit tight and read well. It could make a survival difference for you or for your children. Choose life and endure until the end. The promised rewards for the faithfully humble are great because the real victor has not yet entered the stage!
The Kingdom of Darkness is the ultimate metaphysical institution of evil. During the great temptation by the devil, Jesus did not deny that Satan could make him the ruler of all the world's nations. Satan could make this offer because he is the god of this age/world. (Matthew 4:8-9) To one degree or another, Satan’s kingdom is responsible for every sin and evil committed, thus it must be eliminated for justice to be served and to fulfill God’s plan of preparing a heavenly kingdom of eternal beings on earth.
Satan’s dominion currently remains hidden from direct mortal perception, but that will not always be the case. How can people fight an enemy they cannot see? The Bible reveals Satan the devil’s many disguises and roles in the evils of this age, but most people remain blinded to the ultimate spiritual cause of humanity’s Institutional Evils.
Jesus returns soon to humanity’s dimension of space and time to materially reveal and remove institutional evil from the earth. His birth, life, death and resurrection nearly 2,000 years ago guaranteed the ultimate success of achieving those objectives as well as setting them into motion. Jesus’ life on earth as a Jew living under Roman domination spiritually revealed what is good, which automatically exposed evil and the evil one – just as light exposes darkness – to those graced with spiritual discernment. (John 3:19-21)
Jesus’ death and resurrection began the multidimensional process of mediating human identity transformation towards righteous love and joy by satisfying divine justice through his atoning shed blood. The shed blood of Jesus is the only mediating doorway through which the Holy Spirit can indwell a mortal person. Through faith, truly repentant people are promised the graceful gift of God’s Spirit of understanding truth and a growing inheritance of the Father’s immutable and immortal nature of love, which includes the inability to be tempted and sin. (James 1:13)
At the beginning of time Lucifer the Light Bringer rebelled becoming the Adversary, Satan. The rebellion, or fall, of Lucifer/Satan and his associates caused a break in the peaceful flow of eternity that created the necessity for time and a material universe manifest at a lower energy level and subjected to time according to mathematical laws of physical forces like gravity. Satan’s ruckus ventured into unauthorized territory, a forbidden direction that required God’s attention and correction. Once the old system was broken, it could not be fixed and needed replacement, so God devised a plan and set it in motion to get everything back on track the way it should be. Two paths, tracks or dials for dealing with Satan’s rebellion were incorporated in that plan:
- A way to deal justly with the rebellious angels – Satan and his demons
- and the other to find replacements to take their place in the administration of God’s heavenly realm, which became God’s Plan for Humankind.
Lucifer’s rebellion also created the Kingdom of Darkness, which seems to begin in the (second) heavenly domain just outside God’s throne (Third Heaven) and includes the entire material universe (First Heaven). About one third of all the angels rebelled with the formerly highest of all angels. Lucifer, now called Satan the Adversary, organized them into a rebellious hierarchy ordered according to the cosmos. The leading angel of light became the Dark Mediator. Not only did his rebellion insert the deviant dark light of evil into the life force so that it became an indivisible mixture of good and evil instead of pure goodness, his kingdom remains actively engaged in deceiving and inspiring further rebellion against God among the human nations. Here is a list of the Enemy’s role titles:
- Father of Lies (John 8:44)
- Adversary (1Peter 5:8)
- God of this World/ Age (2Corinthians 4:4)
- Prince of the Power of the Air (Ephesians 2:2)
- Angel of Light (2Corinthians 11:13-15)
- Beelzebub, Prince of Demons (Matthew 12:22-29)
War in heaven already rages because the appointed time draws near when Satan’s evil empire will be exposed and deposed by the Creator Lord of Hosts. The Bible tells of an Apocalypse or Great Tribulation coming upon all nations of the world, as armies of righteous angels led by Michael, the great archangel of Israel, force the demons of hell out of the metaphysical realm, down through one dimension of lowered energy bandwidth to another until their terrible armies materialize on earth as described in the book of Revelation. They will be exposed so that all flesh alive may finally comprehend the source of all evil and how humanity has been deceived. Humans will materially perceive the nature of the metaphysical battle that has taken place throughout history even as the Son of God becomes unmistakably manifest as well. As the returning King of Israel and King of Kings, Yeshua/Jesus must first remove the existing God of this Age and the Kingdom of Darkness so that the Kingdom of Light may be established.
Defining death as the absence of energy rationally necessitates that the total absence of all energy is preceded by its reduction. The reduction of energy intensity levels in the metaphysical realm forces the fallen spiritual beings to descend or fall through the eleventh to sixth dimensions existing at intensities beyond the speed of light until they are forced across the fifth dimension boundary of time and the life force (temporal spiritual power) to eventually materialize in the physical realm just prior to their destruction at the presence of the conquering Messiah Yeshua/Jesus. Except for Satan, who is reserved in an abyss cut off from the life force for a thousand years, the defeated demons are presumably cast into the lake of fire along with the Beast and False Prophet. (Matthew 25:41; 2Peter 2:17; Jude 12-13 and Revelation 19:20-20:3, 10) Further commentary on the judgment of angels and humans comes in the following chapters.
Only after the Kingdom of Darkness is removed may peace come to people of good will on earth. Now comes the promised age of the Messianic Kingdom, the establishment of Institutional Good in the place of the Institutional Evil that humanity has known since Adam and Eve’s expulsion from Eden. The kingdoms of this world become those of the Messiah Son of God. Instead of social institutions of governments, education and religion powered by the life force through humans dominated by Satan, God will impose his divine government over all peoples.
To date, God’s Kingdom has not been directly detected by any physical senses or material instruments of science – other than historically in the person of Jesus, which is debatable. When God ruled the ancient tribes of Israel, his throne seat above the Ark of the Covenant Promises was invisibly occupied. Unlike his previously invisible reign over the children of Israel begun under Moses, God will become visible to all nations of mortals on earth in both his Son and in the resurrected saints who will rule under him for one thousand years.
The word which Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
Now it will come about that
In the last days
The mountain of the house of the LORD
Will be established as the chief of the mountains,
And will be raised above the hills;
And all the nations will stream to it.
And many peoples will come and say,
"Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
That He may teach us concerning His ways
And that we may walk in His paths."
For the law will go forth from Zion
And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
And He will judge between the nations,
And will render decisions for many peoples;
And they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks
Nation will not lift up sword against nation,
And never again will they learn war. (Isaiah 2:1-4)
The people who walk in darkness
Will see a great light;
Those who live in a dark land,
The light will shine on them.
You shall multiply the nation,
You shall increase their gladness;
They will be glad in Your presence
As with the gladness of harvest,
As men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
For You shall break the yoke of their burden and the staff on their shoulders,
The rod of their oppressor, as at the battle of Midian.
For every boot of the booted warrior in the battle tumult,
And cloak rolled in blood, will be for burning, fuel for the fire.
For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us;
And the government will rest on His shoulders;
And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.
There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace,
On the throne of David and over his kingdom,
To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness
From then on and forevermore
The zeal of the LORD of hosts will accomplish this. (Isaiah 9:2-7)
Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse,
And a branch from his roots will bear fruit.
The Spirit of the LORD will rest on Him,
The spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The spirit of counsel and strength,
The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD.
And He will delight in the fear of the LORD,
And He will not judge by what His eyes see,
Nor make a decision by what His ears hear;
But with righteousness He will judge the poor,
And decide with fairness for the afflicted of the earth;
And He will strike the earth with the rod of His mouth,
And with the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked.
Also righteousness will be the belt about His loins,
And faithfulness the belt about His waist.
And the wolf will dwell with the lamb,
And the leopard will lie down with the young goat,
And the calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
And a little boy will lead them.
Also the cow and the bear will graze,
Their young will lie down together,
And the lion will eat straw like the ox.
The nursing child will play by the hole of the cobra,
And the weaned child will put his hand on the viper's den.
They will not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain,
For the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD
As the waters cover the sea.
Then in that day
The nations will resort to the root of Jesse,
Who will stand as a signal for the peoples;
And His resting place will be glorious. (Isaiah 11:1-10)
Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years. (Revelation 20:6)
During the millennial age, social institutional pressures to do wrong will be removed. The economy will be structured to function fairly, and true judgment according to just law will resolve any disputes. All institutional organizations of war will cease with the end of warfare. Human administrations or local and regional governments will operate under the supervision of incorruptible members of God’s spiritual kingdom. Human beings everywhere will have no social or educational excuses for sins and deeds less than good. While the natural life force continues to power mortal lives, access to God’s Holy Spirit becomes unimpeded because of the end to religious confusion.
Fleshly weaknesses will still require discipline. During the millennium, people will be able to sin, do bad things or even to choose evil, but those decisions and actions will be more freely made than today. In fact, they will be made in open opposition to social institutions designed by God to encourage lifeways that are essentially good. In other words, external conformity to good behavior will be socially encouraged and supported. Religious confusion, social pressures to conform to immoral or greedy policies and governmental oppression will cease with the termination of its perpetrators - the present Kingdom of Darkness with its human agents and enablers. [Quoted from my book, digital spirituality, Chapter 8 at www.digitalspirituality.org]
I first received a copy of Herbert R. Stollorz’ early manuscript in November of 2004 from Wilfred Hahn. A personal friend, Wilfred is an investment professional with extensive international experience as both an executive and an analyst. He is a noted author and speaker on financial aspects of the Last Days.
At first Mr. Stollorz’s manuscript consisted of seven substantial chapters totaling about 120 pages. Both Mr. Hahn and myself encouraged Herbert to separated his material into two books so as to more clearly delineate between content that was more speculative research on ancient chronologies and prophecies from that which may be classified as a first level exegesis of the Bible. He did so.
As Herbert and I interacted over what became a mutual search for biblical revelation, his original manuscript expanded to about 1,000 pages of printed matter. A project that I thought would last about six months turned into a major undertaking of over two years during which the two books, Apocalypse Prophesied and Mystery of Tammuz 17. Even as the English editions were being written and revised, the books were simultaneously translated into German, Spanish and Arabic. Even then his ideas kept coming, and additional books of substantial content were written. These books have been unevenly edited and posted to the Internet where they can be found at Apocalypse Prophesied Central, www.apocalypse2008-2015.com.
The shortness of time predicted by Herbert’s research does not permit cautious reflection and debate in academic circles. We made the decision to make these materials available to the public as quickly as possible working on parallel paths, which increased the cost of production. Please read the Author’s Afterword for a discussion on the perils and difficulties of researching prophetic dates.
From the beginning Herbert Stollorz admitted that his research could prove to be flawed. Any scientific exercise is based on assumptions that can only be proven or tried by actual experiment or observation. There are no guarantees that the dates for the events published in these books will be correct. There is a greater likelihood that their relative order and timing will prove to be accurate. Even though they assumed that the dates would probably prove to be incorrect, an independent press considered the two books’ content value unique and richly informative and so published the English editions. Later the Spanish and German versions were published electronically and may be purchased via the Internet. All translations may be read and downloaded online without charge.
For some time, I have believed that a condensed version of these two books would prove popular: a busy public is probably less interested in the methodology and details of Mr. Stollorz’s research than with a concise summary of his discoveries and prophetic interpretations of Scripture. Thus, I created 2012 and the End of Institutional Evil by editing sections excerpted from Herbert Stollorz’ books Apocalypse Prophesied, Mystery of Tammuz 17 and Asteroid Answers to Ancient Calendar Mysteries. Be sure to read the introduction and appendices, too. All three books and his other, shorter works may be searched and read online at www.apocalypse2008-2015.com.
Apocalypse Prophesied and Mystery of Tammuz 17 use science and mathematics to uncover extraordinary information in the Bible that theologians routinely miss. With a unique approach to the Bible, these books present a revolutionary new way of looking at the universe. The first book focuses on God’s Plan for Humanity from before time into eternity. The second book details Herbert Stollorz’s research methodology and thinking in an expanded discussion of the Last Days and the book of Revelation. His third book, Asteroid Answers to Ancient Calendar Mysteries, presents a hypothesis that explains why confirmation to the dating of key events in Bible prophecy may be found in the calendars and clocks of ancient cultures located around the world. It also explains other ancient mysteries by resolving apparent discrepancies between science and the Bible.
Herbert R. Stollorz has invented and improved upon a number of hi-tech devices demanding precision performance – including the floating magnetic head that made possible the original 5-inch mini-disk drive for PCs. Born in Germany during Hitler’s reign, he fled from the communist side of Germany and immigrated to Canada. As an inventor of numerous electronic consumer oriented products, Stollorz ultimately owned a high tech company located in Silicon Valley California. He is now retired and lives in Northern California.
The physical universe extends into the metaphysical realm as one fabric of reality or ultimate truth. Only reality’s material dimension can be explored by science because scientific instruments cannot detect or measure the spiritual dimension. Thus, God’s revelation of the spiritual relationship to the material as recorded in the Bible is essential to unlock the mysteries of life.
Because it is the Word of the Creator, the Bible is congruent with the laws of the natural universe as well as being an integral part of it. The words and structure of the Bible are interwoven within this single fabric of reality so as to reveal the scientifically undetectable aspects of time and eternity. The hypothetical conclusions drawn from studying the Bible through the methodology of a scientist are presented in the books found on this web site. The author believes that his observations may prove to be more reliable than any theological dogma or speculation.
Since the material world images the spiritual, we can explore ultimate reality with the Bible and science to guide us. The test of our grasp of ultimate reality is revealed in a comparison of our proposed picture of God’s Plan for Humanity by comparing it with how the present transforms prophecy into history. For all of humanity, the ultimate crucible that will test each individual’s, each religion’s, each society’s, each nation’s and the global collective’s beliefs about the ultimate reality of divine eternity is the Apocalypse, Last Days or Great Tribulation of the Bible.
The research presented in the books written by Herbert R. Stollorz sets the start of the Apocalypse on 21 December 2008. It will climax on 21 December 2012 and completely end by 21 December 2015. The coming biblical judgment of all nations is sure. God planned it from the beginning as the only way to extend His omnipotent blessings to humans and all creatures. It is certain because the Creator of All, the God of Israel, will intervene directly in the physical universe to make these prophecies become reality in our material dimension in the manner and timing He purposes. Many believe in this certainty, the controversy lies in the author's determination of specific dates. Please read the Author’s Preface where Mr. Stollorz discusses the difficulties and uncertainties of his proposed prophetic chronology.
In Jesus, God will personally confront each mortal with physical trial and spiritual testing with divine love and grace, where accepted, so that each person may become a saint, defined as one conformed to God’s image as expressed in the Son and transformed by the perfect working of His Spirit.
The social, cultural, theological and spiritual commentaries represent the best efforts of the authors to express their views and perspectives on the Bible in the context of historic and prophetic time, but the information presented in these books is not intended to constitute and should not be taken as any type of financial or legal advice.
First of all, we are only human and may be wrong when it comes to the specific facts and dates that someone might use in financial speculation, for example. Our methods of researching and understanding of the biblical texts are founded on some basic assumptions that are either only discernable spiritually at this time or may turn out to be incomplete.
Secondly, we are not in a position to and do not intend to offer any type of advice about the legal and material affairs of any other person’s life. That is for each of us to do responsibly for ourselves as God leads us.

The foundation is not related to any Christian denomination or church. Hence, our Statement of Faith is simple. How each of us puts the principles below to work in his or her personal life varies. Life is a growth experience that occurs at different rates of consciousness and behavior modification. The most important thing is to be on the only guaranteed spiritual way to a good eternity, which is based on these points:
- The Bible is God’s word or testimony, the divine revelation of His will and purpose for life. It is the written expression of His Spirit.
- Personal faith in Jesus the Messiah and obedience to God's Word, according to one's understanding, is the only way to receive the Holy Spirit of God, who is the presence of the Father and the Son in the believer, creating a new life that will last for eternity.
- The Holy Spirit is required for continued growth in spiritual matters such as overcoming sin (a changed life today) and a better understanding of the Bible.
Faith in the Future Foundation considers itself a delivery service for the good news of God’s coming kingdom without respect to persons or organizations.
Faith in the Future Foundation teaches that a believer's "citizenship is in heaven." The directors do not endorse or support any political party, military operation, forced conversion or change of religious or philosophical beliefs, national entity or any activity that seeks to bring biblical prophecies to pass in this world and time. God is Almighty and able to bring about His prophecies without dependence on human works. He alone can judge the mortal heart and determine a person's spiritual condition and future in eternity.
