The Climax of Satan’s Power
The Destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem
Antichrist’s Shock Troops
The Mark of the Beast
The Three Woes
(March 2014 to October 2014)
This period on earth will be a time of massive destruction, ethnic cleansing and death. But the Good News will continue to be preached around the world through television news, the Internet, movies, and personal evangelism. True believers will become as bold as the terrorists, proclaiming Jesus Christ and His coming as Lord of Lords:
And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:14)
Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth—to every nation, tribe, language, and people. He said in a loud voice, "Fear God and give Him glory, because the hour of His judgment has come. Worship Him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water." (Revelation 14:6-7)
The number ten (10) reminds me of the ten plagues in Egypt. In the tenth period of the Apocalypse, we will again see God's judgment against a world system that has persecuted the people of God. The last months of the Apocalypse will find humanity caught within a vortex of horrendous conflicts fueled by political hostility and Islamic religious fervor. The oppressive government systems will arrest people daily. Unemployment, hunger, crime, looting and constant fear will destroy any remnant of civilization.
The rejection of Christian principles rooted in the Bible will result in unimaginable lawlessness. The Bible says that people will lose love for one another. Families will be split over spiritual issues to the point that some will deliver their own household members to the executioners.
When we focus on the destruction of the Apocalypse, we forget to notice what God is doing to save humankind. In the beginning of the Christian church's history, the Bible records a baptism of the Holy Spirit as a testimony to the religious and secular world, demonstrating the enormous power of God.
At the end of the church age, "before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord," God will again pour out the supernatural powers of the Holy Spirit against the backdrop of the most evil time on earth. True believers living through that time should feel highly honored that God has appointed them to manifest God’s power of eternal life and light to the world in the midst of its darkest hour.
Jesus Christ, by a definite plan of foreknowledge, was crucified by lawless men, and then raised by God, having loosed the pangs of death. (Acts 2:23) Therefore, as the Scriptures testify, "everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." (Acts 2:21) Even in these most oppressing times to come, all a person has to do is "call upon the Lord Jesus” in order to be saved. Those who do so will experience the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. In the midst of humankind's darkest hour, God's love will shine more intensely.
The prophet Joel (2:28-32) and the apostle Paul (Acts 17:21) both wrote that there will be a great awakening and hunger to find the God of the Bible. God in turn will pour out the Holy Spirit in a flood that will indwell thousands of people, a phenomenon seen only once before—at Pentecost, 2,000 years ago in the beginning of the church age. This will give the believers added assurance that God loves them and guaranties them eternal life for the future.
And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the Lord has said, among the survivors whom the Lord calls. (Joel 2:32)
In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.
I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. (Acts 2:17-21)
The testimony of their newfound faith will attract even more severe persecution from the western world’s governments. Many will be executed, but others will take up their places. This will be reminiscent of the days 2,000 years ago when Christians were slaughtered for entertainment after being found subversive by a corrupt religious society.
To give assurance to those saints who die on earth for their faith and testimony, God asked John 2,000 years ago to "come up here" and "write what you see."
On the Lord's Day I was in the Spirit, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet, which said: "Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches." (Revelation 1:10)
After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in Heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, "Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this." (Revelation 4:1)
John went up into Heaven, and there he saw the resurrected saints in clean white garments, assembled by the thousands and ten thousands around the throne, the center of God's government. They were worshiping Him with palm branches in their hands. John noticed that they came from many nations and spoke different languages, but all sang in unison a song praising the Lord. John was impressed and awed by the splendor, unity, and love revealed in those people. I call them the "multinational saints."
After this I looked, and there was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, robed in white, with palm branches in their hands. They cried out in a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb!”
And all the angels stood around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, singing: “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”
Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, “Who are these, robed in white, and where have they come from?” I said to him, “Sir, you are the one that knows.” Then he said to me, , “These are they who have come out of the great ordeal [Apocalypse]; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. (Revelation 7:9-14 NRSV) [my emphasis]
Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels surrounding the throne and the living creatures and the elders; they numbered myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands singing with full voice, “Worthy is the Lamb that was slaughtered to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!”
Then I heard every creature in Heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, singing, “To the one seated on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”
And the four living creatures said, “Amen!” And the elders fell down and worshiped. (Revelation 5:11-14 NRSV)
Many Christians believe they will be exempt from suffering, assuming that a “rapture” will save them from the terrible end times. However, God has determined from the beginning to enrich His human children's lives with the experiences that will be needed to graduate to the coming Kingdom of God, which will last forever. He will not deny His children the benefits derived from suffering in the midst of great evil, nor the opportunity to witness a spectacle of events of unimaginable cosmic proportions that had never before been encountered by common people.
Standing in front of the throne, they will agree with God that it was worth their suffering for Him on earth. They will praise Him in their loyalty and give thanks for what they received on earth and for the future life in glory before them.
9 Av 5775 (25 July 2015)
The fifth (5) month of the Jewish festival calendar is Av, which will occur, in 12th Period on 25 July 2015. Five (5) means Heh, “the other side” and that gives it significance of cosmic proportion. On the ninth day of Av, Israel has a national fast day of mourning called Tisha b’Av. Historically, many calamities have occurred during the month of Av. Some of the terrible events of the past that took place on this day are: Moses smashing the two stone tables of the Ten Commandments; the destruction of the First Temple in Jerusalem in 588 BC; and the destruction of the Second Temple in AD 70.
Given the track record of destruction on this fast day of 9 Av, it is pretty safe to predict that the destruction of the Third Temple will also take place on it. However, it took an extended process of revelation and research for me to select the year of 2015. So, I am forecasting the destruction of the Third Temple to take place on 25 July 2015, which is 9 Av 5775. This date occurs during the last, which is the 12th Period of the 7-Year Table of the Apocalypse.
So when you see the desolating sacrilege standing in the holy place, as was spoken of by the prophet Daniel (let the reader understand), then those in Judea must flee to the mountains; the one on the housetop must not go down to take what is in the house; the one in the field must not turn back to get a coat.
Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing infants in those days! Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath. For at that time there will be great suffering, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. And if those days had not been cut short, no one would be saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.
Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look! Here is the Messiah!’ or ‘There he is!’—do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and produce great signs and omens, to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. Take note, I have told you beforehand. So, if they say to you, ‘Look! He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out. If they say, ‘Look! He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it.
For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather. (Matthew 24:15-28 nrsv, emphasis added. Parallel coverage in Mark 13:14-23; Luke 17:23-24, 37; 21:20-24)
This passage contains a very important message for the Jews living around Jerusalem in the last days. Just as these words were substantially fulfilled in the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple by the Romans in AD 70, so it will mean life or death to the Israelis of today if this warning is ignored. Let’s go back in history to put it in its proper context.
The Jewish people currently suffer from the consequences of their first century religious leaders’ rejection of Yeshua/Jesus as being the promised Messiah. "Let his blood be on us and on our children!" they cried. (Matthew 27:25) Since most of the first century Jewish people refused to believe that Jesus was sent from God, they lost the blessing of an almost autonomous rule of their promised homeland. Successive Roman armies slaughtered millions and scattered the rest to the four corners of the globe, a phenomenon referred to as the Diaspora.
Thousands of believing Jews, who made up the early church, did heed the warning of Matthew 24. When the Roman armies advanced, they fled to Pella and other places in Jordan before it was too late. The unbelievers ignored the warnings of Jesus and over a million Jews were slaughtered in Jerusalem alone. Most of those who escaped made up the first wave of the Diaspora.
The next major wave of Jewish survivors to flee their homeland took place when Emperor Hadrian smashed the Bar Kochba Revolt of Roman Judea in AD 135. Hadrian forcefully expelled almost all of the surviving Jews from their land. He placed an idol of Zeus on the former foundation of the Second Temple (today’s Temple Mount) and renamed the province “ Palestine” after the Philistines. Hadrian burned Bible scrolls and viciously forbade the practice of all Jewish religious traditions from circumcision and prayer to animal sacrifices and the celebration of the biblical and national fasts and festivals such as the Sabbath.
Between the two Jewish revolts around AD 70 and AD 135, modern Rabbinic Judaism was created. Out of the ashes of the Second Temple’s destruction, Rabbi Yohanan ben Zakkai began a Jewish orthodoxy that did nor rely on an active priesthood with Temple rituals and sacrifices. They officially rejected Jesus’ claims to be the Messiah and Son of God. In fact, the seeds were planted for a Judaism that did not look for a literal messiah. The creation of Rabbinic Judaism rejects Yeshua as the promised Messiah by definition, which built a wall between the Jewish and Christian communities.
Jews who believed in Yeshua/Jesus as the Messiah (being from one-fourth to one-third of the total Jewish population at that time) were expelled from the Rabbinic Jewish community. On the other hand, most Gentile Christians rejected Passover, the Sabbath and many other biblical traditions for reinterpretations of Scripture in a Greek or Roman cultural and philosophical context. Mostly, Gentile Christians did not want to be identified with the Zealot Jewish rebels against Rome, but some Christian leaders became flagrantly anti-Semitic and reinterpreted the New Testament to justify violence against the Jewish community and religion.
No other nation has suffered as much as the Jewish people and still survived as a distinct ethnic entity. That they still exist and have returned to their ancient homeland is a testimony of God’s grace and intervention in the affairs of humanity on this planet. Their day of full restoration has begun. It is not complete: the Israelis and Jewish people still scattered must first endure the Apocalypse along with the rest of the world. Afterwards, the final regathering will joyously establish Israel as a nation under God.
In Jeremiah 46:27-28 Scripture refers to the Apocalypse as “Jacob’s Trouble.” It will be a horrible time for the Jewish people everywhere. They will have to make a choice: to continue in their secular self-deception and/or tradition-laden religious defiance against the God of Israel, or repent and return to His biblical covenant renewed in the outpouring of His Spirit upon them as described in the books of Jeremiah and Joel.
Although the Israelis will go through a time of tremendous slaughter and destruction in their homeland lasting 1,260 days (1,278 days our time), a remnant - adding up to a third of the Jewish population - will survive. (Zechariah 13:8-9) They will repent and finally accept Jesus/Yeshua their Messiah becoming the first nation to be converted as a whole. The disagreement between Christians and Jews over who that Messiah is will finally be resolved by His appearance in person and in power.
God will pour out great blessings, compassion and love to the survivors because of the promises He gave to Abraham and the many faithful prophets and saints of the past. God has not and will not forsake His chosen people. He will give them a warning to aid their survival. Those who do not repent and do not accept what is written in the full Bible – both rails of the railroad track – will not survive. No one of any nation who rejects the Messiah at His coming will survive.
Jesus gave warnings while on earth before the desecration and destruction of the Temple by the Romans, which anticipated the apocalyptic events still to come. Because this warning has dual application, Jesus’ dual prophecy also plainly advises flight from the invading armies for those who live in Jerusalem during the time of the Great Apocalypse. (Matthew 24:15-28; Mark 13:14-23; and Luke 17:23-24, 37; 21:20-24) No true God fearer will want to be in Jerusalem for what comes next.
After defeating the Mahdi’s (Daniel’s King of the South) armies in Israel, Antichrist will learn about advancing armies coming towards him from out of Asia. This threat will force him to leave Jerusalem to lead an attack against 200,000,000 troops invading from the north and east. (Daniel 11:44-45) Knowing that his doom is imminent, he will seek to destroy any remaining Christians and Jews he can find in a final attempt to strike back against God. As his army is retreating from the city, there will be firing squads on every corner - just as the Nazis behaved in 1945 as Berlin was falling into Russian hands.
To show his total contempt for religion and anger at the oncoming invasion, Antichrist-Satan will enter the Temple and desecrate it in a vile and horrible way. It will be an offense and effrontery to every Jew. Of course, if you do not believe in the prophetic sayings of the Messiah Jesus, then you will ignore these biblical warnings with sad consequences. Many thousands of Jewish people will be killed by the forces of Antichrist or by Islamic hordes gone crazy with a dream of a final victorious conquest of the world led by the Mahdi. Only a true biblical faith can save you, not religious loyalty or observance. It has always been that way in God’s dealing with people throughout history.
I am not sure what Antichrist will do to the Dome of the Rock on the Temple Mount; the Bible is silent. The desecration of the Temple is the most important sign for the people living around Jerusalem to heed out of all that the Bible has prophesied. My dating really has nothing to do with it. Simply watch the events at the rebuilt Temple.
When Jerusalem is surrounded by armies and the Third Temple is profaned by Antichrist-Satan, Jesus tells Israel’s population to flee into the mountainous desert and regroup. Israeli’s army will have been in disarray and unable to protect its citizens. Because their military strength will have failed, Israel will have no hope for deliverance except for the Messiah.
As a clockmaker who understands how the tooth fits the notch in the gear, I strongly recommend that you take your family and rush as fast as possible to get out of Jerusalem when you see these events begin to happen. Run to the eastern desert mountains where the defeated Israeli army will be re-gathering. If you are inclined to believe my book, you will be forewarned and will act accordingly to save your life.
Many educated Jewish people have floundered in their investigations concerning what the two rails of the scriptural railroad – the New Testament and the ancient Torah, Prophets and Writings have to say. Mostly the reason is the same for them as for Christians: they are too busy making a living. People without spiritual orientation from inspired books like mine will end up following anyone who can produce some kind of religious message spiced up with false illusions of real miracles or magic from Satan’s domain.
Jesus tells us not to waste time with fake religious messiahs appearing anywhere. Both the Old and New Testaments describe the coming Messiah as one who will announce Himself with tremendous cosmic display around the globe. There will be no doubt of the real Messiah when He comes this next time. He will display unimaginable power in astronomical splendor. The sun and the moon will tell of Him. Also, the stars in the sky will declare His name and lastly, the earth will join in so that all people will recognize the end of God’s wrath and the beginning of God’s peaceful reign over the nations.
God in His mercy always sends a prophetic message to warn His people before trials take place. As a lifeguard throws a safety ring to a drowning person, He will provide a marker of His purpose and plan. The eternal reference marker is the Temple in Jerusalem, and the day that the Temple is defiled is the day that you flee Jerusalem for your life. In fact, I would leave even before then - when I see the battle going against the EU.
But first I recommend that you study what the gospel verses in the Bible have to say about the “latter days.” Observe the details of these prophecies and write them out on a piece of paper. Jesus advises that those in Jerusalem pray that their flight won’t take place during the winter, which obviously makes survival more difficult due to the cold nights and bad weather.
The prophecy below is sure to come to pass. When you flee into the mountainous or desert regions, there could be signs for an early snow. The migrating birds are one sign that winter is coming. If you plan your escape, you will have some winter clothing and blankets already packed so that you do not waste a moment in fleeing – just as Jesus has spoken. If it is the Sabbath, remember that your life is at stake. You will honor that Sabbath by preserving your life in escape without delay. So study the Bible, which you can buy in any bookstore (no excuse), and be prepared.
For millennia God has deferred judgment. Throughout history He has been very angry with those who deny His existence and teach others that the divine Creator is a myth. From the beginning God has given people two choices: to acknowledge or deny Him. With the chosen option have come either blessings or curses accordingly.
Satan has deceived the world with the master lie that there is a third way – his way of false religion and atheistic philosophies taught in the world’s universities. Now the God of the Bible determines that it is His turn to intervene in the affairs of humanity in order to demonstrate to all that He indeed exists. Because humanity denied His existence for so long, God materializes creatures from hell to human sensual detection, which forces people to accept the existence of the spirit world. They will not be able to explain the existence of demons away by appeals to the laws of physical science.
For over a hundred years now the world’s famous universities and educational systems have made the existence and authority of the Creator irrelevant by teaching that life evolved from some nonexistent and indefinable material substance that somehow accumulated billions of complex and interdependent functions, which together as a whole produce biological life. It is like saying that a massive supercomputer rose out of a formless cesspool to dominate the world’s collective human intelligence.
In fact our politically and socially correct educational and informational media have actively tried to undermine any popular faith in Heaven or the Heh dimension. Thousands of Moslems, Jews and Christians are ridiculed, persecuted and many times killed because of their belief in a real God and the heavenly world of the Heh dimension.
In spite of this public conspiracy against science and the rational discussion of origins, many brilliant young students are now questioning the established humanistic and evolutionary belief systems. The irreducible complexity of so many natural design systems is being confirmed almost weekly as a result of thousands of new scientific discoveries. Instead of being commended on their independent thinking, those who question the status quo are not allowed to graduate. True academic freedom is held hostage by the opinionated professors who still try to blindly indoctrinate their students with evolution’s irrational and unproven speculations deceptively presented as facts.
Humanity will be forced to become aware of divine realty by these prophesied woes of cosmic dimension. Revelation states an angel will soon command that invisible beings from another dimension will become a visible army of demonic “locusts” that appear on earth to confront people with the reality of the spiritual dimension. Soon the world will come face-to-face the spiritual world of evil they had refused to recognize for most of human history. Humanity will experience excruciating calamity at the hands of Satan’s armies of warring demons who will be forced out of the Second Heaven, losing energy as they fall in the material dimension of time and space. In our world, however, they will be an imperial guard of Immortals, the fulfillment of Alexander the Great’s personal guard, which was a prototype of these climatic last days.
Beginning with the Fifth Trumpet and Fifth Bowl or Vial, the waves of judgments that strike the globe are called woes. They are unlike any natural or manmade calamity ever before experienced. The three woes are plagues that originate from and operate within both the Heh and Daleth dimensions. In Revelation 12:12 a voice in Heaven rejoices over the expulsion of Satan and his rebellious angels from Heaven, and then it cries out:
Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time.
For the first time the powers of darkness from the Heh dimension are revealed to the five senses of mortals living in the material Daleth dimension. The unleashing of this combination of natural and supernatural forces upon the earth will make the next three judgment events “woe, woe, woe” and not just plagues number five, six and seven.
The plagues symbolized in the fifth trumpet/fifth bowl are thus referred to as the First Woe. This is the first set of plagues that openly use Heh dimension powers to plague the earth as well as manifesting a presence in the Daleth dimension - in this case as a tangible darkness. As the effects of these cosmic events begin to unfold, the consciousness of the world’s populations will reel from these shockingly new tandem teams of supernatural and natural catastrophes. Some will wake up and repent. Others will curse God and suffer further before dying.
We recognize that the number five (5) means Heh the other side or the invisible world of spiritual reality. The first four trumpet plagues and vials will be scientifically explainable, Daleth (4) dimension incidents of natural destruction. Officials will urge calm and cite statistics to prove that these natural calamities are rare but normal. People will be able to excuse themselves from having to deal with the reality that the God of Israel has begun to judge the earth as He pleads with all flesh for their repentance.
In the final woe of the seventh trumpet and seventh vial God will strike back to purify the atmosphere and surfaces of the earth by removing all opposition to His kingdom, whether that opposition be human armies of 200 millions or myriads of dark angel warriors. The good news is that the new age to come will be totally free of Satan’s deceptive, destructive and lying influence which today operates in and through the air to confuse people about and incite rebellion against their Creator and Redeemer.
The visible materialization of spiritual beings that cause tremendous human suffering and death will expose the lying deception of this humanistic age, which holds that spiritual issues are only emotional and/or psychological in nature. With the material manifestation of the demonic hordes from hell, people might begin to wake up to the fact that God is not merely a psychological and emotional comfort but the eternal, relevant and scientific reality of all that matters in life.
In other words the plagues are now intensified in a manner so that their impact makes it very plain to everyone that authentic spiritual powers cause these scientifically inexplicable manifestations of a torturous false immortality. Demons are not just imaginary bad guys in mythical stories but fearful powers of darkness that main and murder in mayhem. (Hebrews 2:14-15)
Let’s read these very unusual Bible verses to further our understanding about this subject not even taught in churches.
As I watched, I heard an eagle that was flying in midair call out in a loud voice: "Woe! Woe! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the trumpet blasts about to be sounded by the other three angels!" (Revelation 8:13)
And the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from heaven to earth, and he was given the key to the shaft of the bottomless pit; he opened the shaft of the bottomless pit, and from the shaft rose smoke like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke from the shaft.
Then from the smoke came locusts on the earth, and they were given authority like the authority of scorpions of the earth. They were told not to damage the grass of the earth or any green growth or any tree, but only those people who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
They were allowed to torture them for five months, but not to kill them, and their torture was like the torture of a scorpion when it stings someone. And in those days people will seek death but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will flee from them.
The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. On their heads, they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human faces. Their hair was like women's hair, and their teeth were like lions' teeth. They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle.
They had tails and stings like scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people for five months. They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon. (Revelation 9:1-11 NRSV)
In the verses quoted above John describes physical smoke and darkness that block the sun and fill the air. Out of this darkness, mystical underworld beings appear that look like flying scorpions with many wings. It will be difficult for any educated person to explain away these beings as some natural phenomenon out of balance. Only Hollywood movie producers could come up with something close to what these mystical underworld figures are.
The dark door to the bottomless pit opens to the Heh dimension dark-fired prison of demons metaphorically encased by our planet’s interior core of molten metal and magma. To John, these “locusts” had an appearance similar to the orcs and goblins described in myths or the modernistic robotic monsters featured in children’s toys and in modern video games or movies. Just as the devil embodies Antichrist, so these demons emerge in their own form of resurrection. Anything is better than the eternal suffering they have experienced. Now is their chance to escape into the bodily possession of rebellious men and drive them mercilessly in suicide missions at Antichrist’s command. The death of these melded soldiers provides the demons with the opportunity to end their ageless suffering through mercy unto death. (See Apocalypse Prophesied Chapter 6, where these concepts are explained in detail.)
This attack rising from the underworld will take place under smoky and darkened atmospheric conditions caused by the previous bowl, which caused an excessive amount of dust in the air caused by severe drought. News headlines will broadcast strange stories of unexplainable outbreaks of mass hysteria. Thousands of people will be tormented to the point of suicide, but they won’t be able to die even if they try to take their own lives. Instead, their insanity will intensify to the point of being totally out of control.
Hospital and emergencies will be flooded with people seeking relief from pain and other medical problems. Oppressive heat waves and a lack of drinking water will make survival very difficult. The lakes and other open bodies of water will have sunk to their lowest level because of the three years of drought due to the Two Witnesses’ supernatural power that tells the world that they have come as the promised Elijah. (Malachi 4:5; 1Kings 17:1; James 5:17-18). Ground water wells will be inoperable due to the lack of reliable electricity.
The Bible states that these attacks will last for five months. The public will demand answers. Politicians and scientists will be challenged to explain what is going on, and they will not have any. Their minds will still be unwilling to admit what their secular humanist educators have denied for centuries. So the suffering must continue.
As mentioned above, the Fifth Trumpet is the 1 st Woe. The above table shows how it relates to the 11th and 12th Periods of the Apocalypse. The five month duration mentioned here indicates something from the underworld we usually describe as hell (five = Heh, "the other side"). A star falls from the sky. (Stars in Scripture often refer to angels.) One special star (angel) has a key and opens a door that had been locked. This door separates the biosphere of our planet from the metaphysical underworld of hell. Now mankind will experience hell on earth.
When I checked out the Hebrew Alphabet Number System, a startling revelation appeared that correlates the plagues of the Fifth Trumpet and Fifth Bowl with other biblical phenomena. It became obvious to me that the demons of hell have an opportunity to experience something like a resurrection by taking possession of a human body. When people are stung by the locusts, they are forcefully recruited into a dark force of deathless torment. Every person who does not have the seal of God on their foreheads, the presence of His Holy Spirit reborn within, is vulnerable. (Ephesians 1:13)
Given the permission, demons possess people at any cost. Since they lack the ability and power to actually experience a resurrected life, they can only enter the Daleth dimension by entering human bodies. When the doors of hell will be opened for that purpose, these fallen angels will compete with each other to search out those who have been identified with the mark of the beast on their forehead and right hand. These marked people belong to Satan and are open game for them. The Bible strongly warns everyone to refuse the mark of the beast system.
Why do I equate the locusts’ stings with demon possession? Demons cannot possess or indwell a human body where the Holy Spirit resides because the presence of the Spirit is the manifestation of the Kingdom of God within a believer. (Colossians 1:13) Those who are sealed and specially marked by the Holy Spirit will be immune to demonic attack from the underworld.
The intensive form of demon possession indicated here in Revelation 9 will only afflict persons who have accepted the beast’s mark on his or her forehead and right hand. This visible sign is a convenient identification that may be readable by computers, but that is not a factor in this plague.
The mark will identify its bearer as qualified for the highest privileges bestowed by Antichrist’s future world government. You could equate it to a prepaid super-platinum Visa card plus that carries no credit limit. The government at this point of the Apocalypse will control all transportation, accommodations, vacation resorts and popular entertainment attractions. With the mark you will get priority at food distribution points, fuel and anything else desired for life in our modern world without waiting in long ration lines.
In contrast to this material dream world thousands will die daily of starvation or find themselves stranded without fuel to drive their cars and trucks. The thousands who do not conform to this new system of peace and prosperity are sent to prison detention centers (gulags) and forced (slave) labor camps.
Of course, this has all been done before. Why should anyone be surprised that dissenters who do not conform to the party line will be horribly tortured as enemies of the state in an attempt to force compliance? Personal freedom will be gone for everybody. Except for the elderly, no one will even begin to remember what freedom was like. It is a concept barely appreciated or recognized for what it is today.
Once bodily possession by the evil angels occurs, Satan’s demonic forces will take over and drive a person crazy to do terribly inhuman acts of violence and torture against his fellowman. These possessed people will become the chosen shock troops and secret police of the satanically indwelt Antichrist. Like Hitler’s army-within-an-army – those black-uniformed SS troops with the silver death head insignia, this corps of fleshly immortals, who literally cannot die because of the possessing demonic spirit, are commanded personally by Satan/Antichrist. They wage war concurrently in the material Daleth and supernatural Heh dimensions in imitation of the dual dimensional nature of their commander, Satan/Antichrist. People have never before seen anything like this on earth. The scientific community will be suddenly silent - lost for words in the total confusion of civilization’s collapse.
Satan and his demonic spirits will run amok over the earth without opposition. No vile deed will be beyond their obedience to the Overlord of Darkness because the internal torment is even worse when they do not obey. Their bodies are beyond sensitivity to sin and death because they serve the Prince of Death. They cannot resist because their free will is neutralized due to the destruction of their personal identity in willing submission to the devil’s dominion during the previous years of their lives.
Why does Satan as Antichrist need these Special Forces? First, he needs to destroy the Two Witnesses in order to get control of the Temple. Revelation 11 describes the Two Witnesses standing in the Temple at Jerusalem. As long as they stand there, they preach the everlasting gospel of freedom, love and salvation through Jesus Christ and the coming Kingdom of God. They prevent Antichrist’s obsessive possession of the Temple as well as prevent that religious symbol of God on earth from being misrepresented and distorted.
Secondly, daily TV coverage will be announcing hundreds conversions to Jesus because of the Two Witnesses and their allies. These new believers will not go to church, but confess their allegiance directly to God in Heaven. They would rather die than support Antichrist’s reign of oppression and warfare. They also represent a loss of needed technical expertise in industry and commerce because they will live outside of normal society after refusing the Mark of the Beast.
The Two Witnesses are human beings in whom the Spirit of God flows freely. They are symbolized in Zechariah 4:3-14 by two olive trees or lampstands. Consequently, they represent the divine power of the Heh dimension present in the flesh of the Daleth dimension of this age. As human temples of God’s presence, the Two Witnesses sanctify the Temple at Jerusalem because their presence in that structure symbolically demonstrates God’s power on earth. Their testimony proclaims His prophesied return in the full power and glory of His kingdom.
Antichrist will repeatedly send human troops to arrest the Two Witnesses, who will defend themselves with supernatural power by calling fire from heaven. They will be impervious to attacks by normal people. (Revelation 11:5) After many failures, Satan will finally call his demonic forces out of the abyss at the Fifth Trumpet/Fifth Bowl. He will send these dual dimensional shock troops to battle the Two Witnesses in both the physical Daleth and metaphysical Heh dimensions simultaneously. (Revelation 12:7)
Remember, from the beginning Satan has striven to occupy God’s throne. (Isaiah 14:13-14) It is the eternal obsession that defies reason. It is why this fallen archangel is entirely irrational in his hate-filled brain. Since he believes that he can defeat God by wiping out His worshippers and historically chosen people (the Jews), Satan never gives up. The devil has always been destructively effective in execution of his irrational strategies.
Since being completely driven out of the Second Heaven on 21 December 2012, the Temple in Jerusalem is the only symbolic throne of God that Satan can possibly seize. Through the body of Antichrist, he will rage against the Two Witnesses waging desperate attacks to gain entry to the Third Temple. The Bible predicts that he will eventually succeed and seat himself on the throne of God – the mercy seat situated above the Ark of the Covenant. But his victory will be short-lived. (2Thessalonians 2:4)
The ministry of the Two Witnesses’ in the Temple will last for forty-two months ending on 17 Tammuz 5775 (4 July 2015), when Antichrist’s Shock Troops from hell will finally succeed in murdering them. Their death ends the First Woe with a victory celebration in joyful global parties and giving gifts to each other like an American Christmas shopping spree. Everybody also thinks that the drought caused by the Two Witnesses will soon come to an end as they notice heavy clouds overhead that seem to promise much needed rain.
When they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the bottomless pit will make war on them and conquer them and kill them, and their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city that is prophetically called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified.
For three and a half days members of the peoples and tribes and languages and nations will gaze at their dead bodies and refuse to let them be placed in a tomb; and the inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and celebrate and exchange presents, because these two prophets had been a torment to the inhabitants of the earth.
But after the three and a half days, the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and those who saw them were terrified. Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here!” And they went up to heaven in a cloud while their enemies watched them.
At that moment there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell; seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the rest were terrified and gave glory to the God of Heaven.
The second woe has passed. The third woe is coming very soon. (Revelation 11:7-14 NRSV)
However Satan’s party will last only three days. Some new headlines will greatly disturb him. First, there will be a severe earthquake in Jerusalem as a direct response to the murder of the Two Witnesses. News media will report 7,000 dead in the rubble. Even more dramatic and disconcerting will be the resurrection of the Two Witnesses’ mutilated bodies. The whole world will see the bodies of these two preacher prophets rise up and float skyward out of the TV camera’s range. Lastly, reports will reach Antichrist that massive military movements are coming against him out of the north and east. (Daniel 11:44-45) He will be forced to abruptly end his partying to go to war.
The resurrection of the Two Witnesses in verses 11-12 is a not too subtle demonstration that the God of Israel is not defeated, for He alone commands life over death. The Jerusalem earthquake of verse 13 foreshadows the Great Earthquake to come at the end of the battle of Armageddon, which is the Second Woe, thus Revelation 11:14 skips to that time quickly moving from the resurrection victory of the Two Witnesses to the seventh trumpet proclamation that the kingdoms of the world have become incorporated into the Messiah’s eternal kingdom.
I have noticed that some Bibles provide subtitles not found in the original text. They are placed there to be helpful, but their placement as well as their content is a matter of editorial interpretation, which means they may be wrong. I have seen a big mistake regarding Revelation 11:14, which I discovered by analyzing this verse in the context of the Hebrew Alphabet Number System.
In my case, the Nelson Study Bible on page 2183 places Revelation 11:14 before the headline, “Seventh Trumpet: The Kingdom Proclaimed.” The effect is to associate verse 14 with the end of the previous story about the Two Witnesses. However, the real purpose of this verse is to place verse 15 in its proper context from the Heh perspective. This kind of “helpful” editorialized formatting has at times been the cause of confusion and wrong interpretations in the past.
The statement that the Second Woe has past and the Third Woe is still to come should be associated with the seventh angel’s announcement and not connected directly with the timeframe of the witnesses. Thus, dating the death of the Two Witnesses on 4 July 2015 conforms to Scripture. The Bible does not say that their deaths immediately precede the Seventh Trumpet, which I place at 4 September 2015.
According to Jesus’ words, the big events of the Apocalypse may find some correlation with the events and dates of Noah’s Flood. My research indeed uncovered some chronological alignments with the Flood that helped me to date these Fifth Trumpet/Fifth Bowl events of the Apocalypse.
In my first book, Apocalypse Prophesied, I write about Noah and the Flood in Chapter 4. In 2288 BC the Bible records that the First Civilization collapsed and totally disappeared for many good reasons. In Genesis 7:11, 8:3, 8:14 three dates give us information about the timing of the major events of the Flood. Interestingly, they conform to the Rosetta Stone 7:5 ratio, which I will explain in greater detail in Chapter 5.
What I discovered was that the dates given for the Flood overlay perfectly within the 11th and 12th Periods of the Great Apocalypse. I took the 375 days of the Flood’s duration and counted them backwards from 21 December 2015, which is the end of the Great Apocalypse. The date I come to is 10 December 2014, which intersects with the second month of the 11th Period. It corresponds to the Mini-Apocalypse, which began in the second month of the 6th Period. It is yet another example of aligned chronological correlations that give me so much confidence in the results of my methodology.
Noah entered the ark on the 10th day of the second month. Genesis 7:10 says that he then waited 7 days when the earth shook violently as the fountains of the deep broke up and the floodgates of sky opened on the 17th day of the second month. As a result, the waters of the Flood rose dramatically.
To align the events of the Apocalypse with the Flood, we start with 10 December 2014 and add seven waiting days to come to the 17th day of the second month of the 11th Period. The Bible states that all the mountains were covered by water. After 150 days the Ark rested on the mountains of Ararat. It was the high water mark of the Flood.
From that point on the water recedes for the next 7 months. They recede just like the annual floods of California’s flat delta region. It takes about that amount of time for the farmers to plant rice in the muck. So with a little bit of logic, the chronology of Noah’s Flood became an interesting possible overlay with the Apocalypse. As I researched the details, I discovered that my intuition was correct. They do.
The Woes begin God’s judgment of Satan, all evil angels and rebellious humanity. The Fifth Trumpet is the fulcrum of the Mini-Apocalypse. The following events culminate in the total elimination of humanity’s post-Flood civilization. Because of their opposition to God, secular societies have difficulty understanding the spiritual Heh dimension. Without God’s help through His Holy Spirit, they cannot reason or comprehend spiritual principles and facts. Their unwillingness to submit to His moral laws and purposes opens them up to believe the many lying delusions that dominate this age of testing.
The beginning of the Fifth Trumpet marks the apex of Antichrist’s power on earth. It is properly the point of evil’s zenith because we are counting backwards from the end of the Great Apocalypse. Furthermore, God’s intervention is reversed in the actions taken during the Apocalypse as opposed to the Flood because His objective is a restored millennial age for millions of all nations to live in peace and prosperity (becoming righteous and blessed) instead of a destroyed corrupt population (more evil and cursed than usual).
God raised the waters to destroy the evil global society of Noah’s day. During the Apocalypse, Satan and his demonic forces are the raging spirits of destruction that threaten the Creation and people of God. Revelation 12:15-17 even uses the symbolism of flood waters (troops) let loose that God drains into an earthly abyss of destruction on the way to the Lake of Fire. God’s purpose and plan for humanity has remained constant: to preserve His creation as a beautiful home for people to live on under a righteous and just government administering love and blessings. The Apocalypse reverses human civilizations’ evil trends. Those trends were checked by Noah’s Flood in 2288 BC to ultimately bring Adam and Eve’s extensive family back to the Edenic paradise of New Jerusalem.
Now let’s go back to dating the events of the Apocalypse. When does the Fifth Trumpet/Fifth Bowl of 150 day period begin?
When we count back 375 days from 21 December 2015, we arrive at 10 December 2014. This connects with the First Trumpet announcements which cause the bowls to be emptied. After the 4th Trumpet overlaid with Daleth signifying this world in this time, we come to the 5th or Heh Trumpet. The Hebrew letter Heh (5) tells us that this trumpet is different, and we must look into the Heh dimension.
Note that the execution of the bowls in the Daleth dimension is difficult to sequence chronological from the Heh dimension projection. In this case there is specific mention that the 5th bowl will last 150 days, whereas it appears that the others will only last 13 days. This indicates that the 360-degree movie screen projection seen by John runs slower for at least one segment than it does for the others as we would conventionally conceive of time passing in a movie. This experience of viewing multiple events occurring simultaneously at differing rates – either faster or slower within a 360-degree movie is a phenomenon not portrayed on earth yet. (Reference here is to the book of Revelation. For a complete discussion, see An Essential Introduction in Mystery of Tammuz 17.)
My own explanation is that there are multiple scenes being shown all around John. On one side are portrayed the Heh dimension events, on the other side are the Daleth dimension fulfillments and perhaps at another angle he could see Daniel’s visions being re-run. So trying to keep track of what is going on to his right, left, center and behind simultaneously makes this movie very difficult to write sequentially, which was the only way John could do it. He did an excellent job, but our monorail theologians have created confusing theories and even elevated them to false doctrines in trying to explain what he wrote. The main reason for the errors is that they have not provided sufficient biblical support for their ideas. This is why I use my rule of having five Bible verses to justify a major teaching and why it is so important to learn a little how HANS works.
So how did I find the date of the Fifth Trumpet? The Rosetta Stone 5:7 ratio guided by computations. According to this principle, I had to work with the 280 days between 10 December 2014 and 17 September 2015 when the Mini-Apocalypse ends. Next, I divided these same 280 days into 12 periods of 23.33 days each. Now I use the 5:7 ratio and multiply 23.33 x 5 = 116.33 days. If I multiply 23.33 by 7, I get 163.3 days. To check my computations, I add 116.33 + 163.3 = 280 [ignore the fraction].
Now counting 117 days from 10 December 2014 brings us to 4 April 2015 , which is the first holy day of Unleavened Bread called Passover. (Leviticus 23:4-5) This day also happens to fall on a weekly Sabbath. The fact that I rounded up to 117 means that the break between the 5 and 7 portions lands almost right on the hour of Jesus’ death by crucifixion – the ultimate and eternal Passover sacrifice. By His crucifixion Yeshua the Son defeated the devil and qualified to restore dominion over the earth to the Son of Man as the Second Adam. Satan’s dominion is judged and soon to be removed.
Counting 163 days from Passover brings us to 4 September 2015 . Antichrist’s Shock Troops will have been invincible up to this date in the Apocalypse, but they are no match for what comes next - the four death angels loosened from the Heh dimension. Elsewhere I describe how there will be four death angels are loosed to destroy all of the remaining forces of evil and rebellious humans. Following the Seven Thunders, all demonic powers on earth are subject to defeat. By 17 September 2015 the Mini-Apocalypse is over and all evil forces – demonic or human - are gone from this planet, destroyed forever.
The fallen angels will escape their eternal torment when they cease to exist, probably by being tossed into the Lake of Fire with the bodies of the Beast and False Prophet. (Revelation 19:20) One more vital step in preparing the way for Jesus’ return as King of Kings has been completed. The next civilization will have no evil influences to sabotage God’s purposed blessings for all nations. Unified under the One Creator, all of the families of humanity will rejoice in fellowship with each other in one faith.
What a time of blessing to look forward to! Daniel’s prophesied wait of 1,335 days comes to an end and so do the trials. Days of blessing become the new reality after 17 September 2015. Now nothing remains to be accomplished before Jesus can arrive on earth with power and honor, simultaneously initiating the First Resurrection of the Dead.
The judgment of the Third Woe occurs during 13 apocalyptic days between 4 September and 17 September 2015. Note the preponderance of numbers thirteen, which means rebellion and depravity. The end of the Mini-Apocalypse means the end of all demons - all evil angels or any other kind of unknown evil spirit. This, my dear reader, is one the greatest discoveries I have made. Consider it: from 18 September 2015 forward, there will no longer be any evil demons on earth or anywhere else in the universe to plague or possess people! This reality is a necessary prerequisite for God to guarantee us 1,000 years of peace on earth where war, hate crimes, drug addiction and child abuse will no longer be remembered by the future generations to be born in the Third Civilization.
Only Satan is left as a lone survivor. He is chained in prison for a thousand more years as the only inmate. There will not be one departed soul to give him company. The frequent appearances of the number 13 strongly indicate the judgment aspect of the First Woe, but that did not surprise me.
What do we learn from the First Woe? It is the first time in human history since the Flood that the battle between good and evil visibly takes place in the merged dimensions of Daleth and Heh. The Battle of Armageddon, or Second Woe, will also take place simultaneously in both dimensions. Then, immediately thereafter, the Third Woe begins in the air with the Seven Thunders and then extends to the surface of the earth as hundred pound hailstones strike it from the sky. This final woe finishes deep within the earth with the greatest earthquake this civilization has ever experienced.
These woes are tremendous battlefields for strange creatures never before seen as well as for others that we do not see with our eyes. As we will learn later, the atmospheric realm of the invisible angel-class of beings will have been purged from all evil just as God will command angels to remove the demons still roaming the earth among and in possession of the soldiers of Armageddon. Both the surface of the earth and the atmospheric realm of air must be absolutely free of all rebellious beings before the coming of Jesus in the air.
The Savior King of Kings reigning in His majesty and splendor will not resurrect, receive to Himself and come with the heavenly saints where evil yet roams. We are not resurrected to battle but to victory already won. When the time for His wedding feast arrives, it will be a festive occasion fit for a King. Any wedding I have ever attended was spotlessly clean, and I am sure that a King’s wedding anticipated for a thousand years will not be messy or be crashed by unwelcome demonic guests.
Whenever Jesus gives the signal for His coming in splendor, His agents will make sure that the air space will be free of the possibility of unauthorized encounters with evil. As He prepares to descend to earth, the territory around Jerusalem, Israel and then the globe will be cleaned up of all remains and evidences of the fallen angels, demons as well as the dead bodies from the nations’ armies so that His appearance can be received with celebration.
To better understand these passages about demons entering human bodies, let’s review some Bible verses to shed inspired light on this prophetic event known as the First Woe.
Let's zero in on the underworld and find out more about the spirit beings that are restrained to activity in the earthly dimension of Daleth. The book of Mark tells the story of Jesus healing a demon possessed man.
They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes. When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an evil spirit came from the tombs to meet Him. This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him any more, not even with a chain. For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him. Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones.
When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of Him. He shouted at the top of his voice, "What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? Swear to God that you won't torture me!" For Jesus had said to him, "Come out of this man, you evil spirit!"
Then Jesus asked him, "What is your name?"
"My name is Legion," he replied, "for we are many." And he begged Jesus again and again not to send them out of the area.
A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside. The demons begged Jesus, "Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them." He gave them permission, and the evil spirits came out and went into the pigs. The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned. (Mark 5:1-13)
In this text we find a man possessed by a legion of demons. (In the Roman army, a legion was about 6,000 soldiers.) These demons begged not to be tortured and sent into the underworld. Jesus gave them permission to enter 2,000 pigs, which ran into the water and drowned.
In this scriptural account these demons express characteristics that humans can relate to. Altogether, we find thirteen attributes recorded:
- They are beings with desire. (want, v. 7)
- They have a consciousness and need a reference point. ( swear, v. 7)
- They can feel pain. ( torture, v. 7)
- They can walk and go places. (come out, v. 8)
- They are capable of rational thinking. (what, v. 9)
- They can speak, and they have identity. (your name, v. 9)
- They are aware of numbers and can count. (we are many, v. 9)
- They have a will and can make a decision. (begged, v. 10)
- They follow orders. (send, v. 10)
- They can make choices (allow, v. 12)
- They obey a higher force (came out, v. 13)
- They planned their next move. (rushed, v. 13)
- They could change their status. (drowned, v. 13)
The number thirteen (13) means "depravity" or "rebellion." These demons operated in a dimension where they could express humanlike characteristics.
In the end times many people will continue to refuse to acknowledge the Creator or even believe that He exists. Therefore humanity will be exposed to demons for five months. After reading the story of the demon-possessed man in Mark 5, we can imagine what it will be like when thousands of demons are visibly let loose to possess or walk into human beings. Coming face-to-face with something that science cannot explain will force unbelievers to acknowledge the spiritual dimension. When God pours out His wrath, they will know it is from God, not from natural occurrences:
The fifth angel poured his bowl on the throne of the beast, and its kingdom was plunged into darkness; people gnawed their tongues in agony, and cursed the God of Heaven because of their pains and sores, and they did not repent of their deeds. (Revelation 16:10-11 NRSV)
The rest of humankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands or give up worshiping demons and idols of gold and silver and bronze and stone and wood, which cannot see or hear or walk. And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their fornication or their thefts. (Revelation 9:20-21 NRSV)
After the outbreak of the First Woe of darkness, demon possession and unrepentant blasphemy, the world continues unabated in their opposition to God. They will not repent from their evil hatred against the saints. Terrorist activities will be impossible to contain, causing the Western Alliance to retaliate against all religions except those that worship the Beast. I believe that their attack will include the systematic destruction of the shrines and mosques of the Islamic faith, including Mecca.
The consequences will be an outcry of hatred and unparalleled wrath against the West that prepares the way for the Second Woe, which is the sixth trumpet and the sixth bowl. Now all of the nations of the earth will begin to gather together for Armageddon. It is the ultimate war against the Almighty – the Great Day of the LORD (YHVH). All looks dark and hopeless, and even at this time the hour and day of Jesus’ return is unknown.
If there was any doubt about where the “rapture” of 1Thessalonians 4:17-5:3 chronologically fits in the overall scheme of God’s plan, this quote makes it plain. Here at the end of the Second Woe’s description John quotes Jesus’ encouragement to stay awake and spiritually endure in faith, truth and good works to the end. Listen to what the Son of God says:
Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his garments, lest he walk about naked and men see his shame.
And they gathered them together to the place which in Hebrew is called Har-Magedon [Armageddon]. (Revelation 16:15-16 NASB [brackets give alternate translation])
In this chapter I began to describe something very unusual, and I think it is important to shed some more light on it at this point. Just before the publication of this book, the Lord prompted me to squeeze it in for you. It is necessary because you will not find it in any other book, nor are you likely to hear it preached in church.
When I first began my journey in understanding the Apocalypse, the story sequence of the book of Revelation came together for me in an unconventional manner. You have probably noticed that I do not follow the traditional Christian approaches used to unravel what follows what. Instead, I have taken an interpretative methodology that disregards Christian belief systems popular for the last 100 years in the USA. The conclusions of my research challenge the traditional interpretations of the “Last Days” in general and the book of Revelation in particular, which upsets some people.
How did I manage to do this? I laid out the Hebrew Alphabet Number System as if I had hammered 12 nails horizontally across a wall representing the seven years of the Apocalypse. After assigning a Hebrew alphabet number to each nail, I began to randomly, but logically, hang each chapter of the Apostle John’s prophetic writings on each of those 12 nails.
But the events of any story must follow some logical progression. Since I was not biased to any preconceived ideas of what would come of this approach, I could just trust the Lord’s guidance in determining the right “nail” for each of the events found in each chapter. During the process of assembling this sequence, I was at first unaware of any significant pattern. Only at the end of proofreading this section did I became aware of its implications.
Remember, I did not follow the chapter sequence of Revelation as it is written in the Bible. There were several reasons for this. The first was the interplay between the Heh dimension of eternity and the Daleth dimension bound by time. Then there is the question of whether the order of Revelation’s text remains in its inspired order or if it has been edited in some manner. (Reference here is to the book of Revelation. For a complete discussion, see An Essential Introduction in Mystery of Tammuz 17.)
Finally, perhaps, God may have been waiting for a former clockmaker to come along who would take the risk of popular disfavor in order to reveal His intricate pattern of chronological gears to the world. Not being a theologian, I was not aware of connections between Revelation’s verses with important Old Testament scripture references either.
And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star from heaven fallen unto the earth: and there was given to him the key of the pit of the abyss. And he opened the pit of the abyss; and there went up a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
And out of the smoke came forth locusts upon the earth; and power was given them, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was said unto them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree, but only such men as have not the seal of God on their foreheads. [Emphasis added.]
And it was given them that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when it striketh a man. And in those days men shall seek death, and shall in no wise find it; and they shall desire to die, and death fleeth from them. (Revelation 9:1-6, ASV)
And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as [teeth] of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings [like angels] was as the sound of chariots, of many horses rushing to war. [Author’s addition.]
And they have tails like unto scorpions, and stings; and in their tails is their power to hurt men five months.
They have over them as king the angel of the abyss: his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in the Greek [tongue] he hath the name Apollyon.
The first Woe is past: behold, there come yet two Woes hereafter. (Revelation 9:8-12, ASV)
The First Woe deals with demons pouring out of the depths of the underworld or hell after the door was opened. They follow “Apollyon” in a mad rush to become incorporated into human bodies of the Daleth dimension - in our world and time. Apollyon is Satan’s captain of the underworld section of the Heh dimension. Since their original rebellion after creation, both angels and people alike have had the inborn desire to return to the higher level of the Heh dimension in order to circumvent the tortuous and deathly consequences of their sin and rebellion.
Humans and fallen angels aspire in common to return to the Heh dimension from the Daleth dimension. Most people I talk to want to go to Heaven. In fact, many assume wrongly that they are already on their way there because “they are not so bad.” But any aspiration to Heaven is impossible for the angels that mutinied. Jesus did not die for their sins; hence they are doomed.
The makeup of rebellious, cloned angels is twisted and broken: their nature cannot be fixed. Once they sinned against the Creator, there was no way to repair, reprogram or restore them to their original perfection. And that is why they are kept in prison of outer darkness. Fortunately, people are designed differently than angels on purpose. In His mercy and wisdom God has built into people the capacity for reprogramming because He wanted us to experience evil in order to be immunized for His eternal purposes. Eventually a person’s new program is made permanent at the time the Bible calls the First Resurrection.
Although we inherit a fallen nature as a consequence Adam and Eve’s original sin decisions in the Garden of Eden, we can be transformed into the image of His righteousness through repentance and faith in Christ. If we submit our will to the Father’s, then we can receive a new operating system called Eternal life to replace the good-and-evil breath of the Daleth life system we were born with. In the First Resurrection we receive perfect, immortal metaphysical bodies of the Heh dimension that have been uniquely personalized according to our deeds on earth to reflect who we are in the perfection of God’s standard of holiness.
In Chapter 6 of Apocalypse Prophesied I introduced the concepts of Mercy unto Life and Mercy unto Death for the lost souls of people. Since demons or fallen angels have no hope of entering eternity in bliss, they will try to obtain relief from their suffering by possessing people in the Daleth dimension - “this world in this time,” but they themselves are deceived by the Devil in this vain hope – just as they were when they originally rebelled and followed Satan.
When the First Woe furnace door of the abyss is opened by a mighty angel of God, the demonic hordes under Satan’s command immediately seize the opportunity to escape their tortured prison chambers. They break out of the smoky dark blackness of the Heh dimension furnace-chambers with tremendous power and speed.
However, as they ascend up into the world of the Daleth dimension on earth, they still must obey God’s cosmic laws of the universe. He is omnipotent and in control of the whole Apocalypse, which is designed to judge humanity with the goal of maximum redemption even as it is to remove the presence of corrupted angelic beings. The fallen angels seize their opportunity to escape hellish damnation for ever and ever by seeking out human bodies of the Daleth dimension. This is their only ticket to escape hell.
However, Christ died only for humanity created after the image and likeness of God, which is what makes mortal persons redeemable. The irreparably evil, fallen angels from the Heh dimension do not have that option and are left only with a driven desperation to find a way to end their torment. Five months later they will face the omnipotent inevitability of God’s judgment of destruction in the Lake of Fire when they are cast out by a very strong death angel created for that purpose.
Remember, the cosmic cycle of the Daleth dimension as a whole will be terminated in the Lake of Fire. Coming into the earthly dimension from the metaphysical or Heh dimensional pit, they are now roaming the earth seeking human bodies to possess as it was in Jesus’ day described above.
God does not care anymore for a person who will not repent and so cannot be saved. The unrepentant are delivered to Satan. These are the ones who have the name and number of the Beast on their foreheads or right hands. The demons will eagerly enter these rebellious people devoid of divine protection who are now permanently marked and dedicated to eternal destruction.
By possessing the people bearing the mark or number of the Beast, the demons that storm into the Daleth dimension know for a certainty that they will escape the extreme torments of hell for a season. This is their only opportunity to terminate their misery by destruction in the Lake of Fire, and they devilishly take advantage of it. In their twisted delight these depraved spirit beings will severely torture their hosts. Thus, God’s angels announce “Woe” to those who refuse God’s grace and take Antichrist’s mark of material security and prosperity according to the wisdom of the world.
These demonic hordes clothed in mortal flesh will ravage the earth for about five (5) months killing the Two Witnesses at the end of their predicted 1,260 days of ministry. During this time, the human identities of their hosts will blend together into one person. The original humanness of the host will cease to be identifiable as it becomes totally evil. The personalities of the hosts will be absorbed into the void of rebellious nothingness that comes as a result of demonic residence and control of their bodies. This experience will seem like Heaven to the demons because it gives them freedom to exercise their will.
