Category: .r Time of Trouble Such as Never Was

Sabbath ~ April 9, 2016

 

       In looking around at the world around us, there is much to distract as we see Satan’s agents struggling to incite war, racial strife, riot, bloodshed, death, destruction, &c. I say struggling because they are. Their goals they are not able to achieve. Reducing the population of the world in any way possible, is just not working.
 
World War III just is not happening.
 
The four angels are holding the four winds. Revelation 7:1
 
        God is in control. The four winds will be held untill Christ gets on the cloud to leave Heaven, headed for earth. EP261 (Early Publications, page 261)
 
        It must be a time of peace in order for the third angel to do his work. EP296 That work will end and probation will close.
 
       If the Loud Cry is coming as the Midnight Cry, EP413, it seems reasonable that it will go, or end, also, as the Midnight Cry; meaning, that when the third angel’s work is done, God will send everyone home. The burden for sinners will be lifted and mercy’s voice will fall silent. Life Incidents,p186
 
       Then it is that some will search for hearing God’s word, but they will not find it. Amos 8:11 Mankind’s probation will have closed… forever. Then there is an unknown period of time untill Christ takes his seat on the cloud to come to earth. EP261
 
       Then the four angels stop holding the four winds. Then it is that Satan has full control of the wicked. Then it is that people will turn on each other with satanic fury. A rage burning in their hearts, seen in their eyes, true terror stalks the land, brother against brother, sister against sister; all the while the seven last plagues will be falling and taking their toll; for that is their purpose, to destroy man off the earth. 1858GC,p200-201&1SP,p85 (1858 Great Controversy & Spirit of Prophecy, Vol.1)
 
       Then it is that Satan gets his way. His agents are delighted with the reduction of earth’s masses, but not with the very painful sores they bear in their bodies. Revelation 16:2 All this rage, hatred, bloodthirsty revenge, gets turned on the righteous. If they have any food, it is taken with violence. 1849 Broadside They flee. It does little good. They are followed, hunted, cornered, and mocked as the wicked prepare to slay them. 1858GC,p201-204
 
        Now is the time to prepare for that hour. Now it is peaceful. Now it is easy to trust in God, have faith, read God’s instructions, &c. And now it is the time of testing, this patient, waiting, watching, time. TNo.16,p96 Now we are tested by little annoyances, little things that irritate, like the drag of time passing with seemingly nothing happening.
 
       I look up at the stars, knowing this future that awaits, knowing that if time lasts longer I may go to my grave,… and see none of it; untill I get called from that grave, if I have been faithful. As I look at the stars, thinking these thoughts, I determine in my heart that I will set my face like a flint, I will be harder than adamant. Isaiah 50:7 & Ezekiel 3:9 I choose to trust in God’s word. I will PRAISE HIS NAME! when it hurts.
 
       And here comes that irritation. Again. But I know that every time I resist evil I get stronger for the next battle. God has revealed himself to me in my life a few times. He saved me physically from death at least twice. He saved me from a besetting sin I could not overcome and get the victory on my own. I know I am a sinner. I know I am a lost man if I allow pride to grow in my life. All I have to do is look back at my life, and I know, without God’s hand in my life I would be lost.
 
       I know that Christ is all in all for me. Without Christ I am not worthy to be a doormat in Heaven. My night cometh. I want to be found watching, faithfully. Then when Christ comes he will not say, “What, could ye not watch with me one hour?” Matthew 26:40 I know without Christ I am a lost man.
 
       I pray to the Father that he will increase my faith, help me to die to the world and it’s devices of distraction, spiritual weaknesses, the enchanted ground. He has given me a work to do. By so doing doubtless I will grow by God’s providence, spiritually.
 
       I heard the Robin’s evening song as even they sing God’s praise. Just a few days past I saw on the ground the feathers and the beak of a Robin that met it’s end.
 
       I know the end is near, it’s very near. We can trust in God, even in death and through the grave. We can… trust in God.

I am exasperated! There is a constant stream of vomit and filthiness that must be waded through to get the truth in researching the authentic Spirit of Prophecy vs the counterfeit SOP. I sometimes feel like I have jumped into a septic tank that must be bailed out by hand!!! Gross, YES!!! Sometimes necessary. Lord have mercy and give me strength to swim this filthy tide!

In picking up Questions on the Sealing Message, by J. N. Loughborough, published 1916, to check something else, my eyes fell upon these lines, page 18, which were highlighted.

If there is still a doubt of the resurrected Sabbath keepers’ being numbered with the 144,000, consider the following from Sister White’s words in 1909. At the General Conference in 1909, Elder Irwin had a stenographer accompany him in a call upon Sister White. He wished to ask her some questions, and have an exact copy of the words of the replies.
Among other questions was this one: “Will those who have died in the message be among the 144,000?” In reply, Sister White said: “Oh, yes, I those who have died in the faith will be among the 144,000. I am clear on that matter.” These were the exact words of question and answer, as Brother Irwin permitted me to copy from his stenographer’s report.

Previous to this I had not put much weight on this information, because we have The Day-Star and the 1858 Great Controversy, page 205, which, when combined, show clearly that all those who hear the voice of the Father giving the day and hour of Jesus coming and watch him come to this earth are, in fact, the 144,000, there are no others present.

After reading Loughborough’s comments today, I decided to see if Elder Irwin’s notes might be available on the White Estate CD. In checking this, I found the muck! and that is what I hate about doing this research. I feel dirty handling this junk! Here is what was found.

e. The Interviews: He [Elder G. A. Irwin] has with him a little notebook in which he has noted down perplexing questions which he brings before me, and if I have any light upon these points, I write it out for the benefit of our people, not only in America but in this country [Australia].–Letter 96, 1899. {3SM 51.1}
f. When There Was No Light: I have no light on the subject [as to just who would constitute the 144,000]. . . . Please tell my brethren that I have nothing presented before me regarding the circumstances concerning which they write, and I can set before them only that which has been presented to me.–Quoted in a letter by C. C. Crisler to E. E. Andross, Dec. 8, 1914. (In White Estate Document File, Number 164.) {3SM 51.2}

Let’s walk through this.

1.) Elder Irwin is getting written up in a letter dated 1899, for the exact same thing which Loughborough is describing in 1916, as having happened in 1909. So we can surmise that Irwin had a habit of doing this type of thing.

2.) Now all this is being written up in book 3 of Selected Messages. Lo, and behold! the very next item on that very page is a question about the 144,000, as to who they would be constituted of. And we have a letter (read proof here), dated December 8, 1914, of “Ellen’s” answer. “I have no light on the subject….”

3.) Just five years previous we have a highly credible report from a man who has made it a habit to ask Ellen, personally, difficult questions, and a highly credible report of the answer to one of those questions, from a man, who had only eight more years to live, but was a true pillar of the church, verified so.

But we have two “Ellens”!!!!!

God’s prophets do not speak with forked tongue!!!

This is another one of those cases where you MUST decide. You are forced to choose! You can not have it both ways!

Either Ellen was true and faithful to God, or she was not.

On this site we prove that Willie was Satan’s agent to re-write the entire authentic Spirit of Prophecy and that he took control immediately after James’ death, writing his views, his thoughts, his opinions, then putting Ellen’s name on the work as his authority it were, her work.

With regard to the mass of world events swirling around our heads, an interesting item has popped up. Zero Hedge (dot com) has put up a page showing that the G7 nations, as a whole, have a consolidated debt at a record high of 440%.

This is a significant data point for a reason. Historically, whenever a nation has reached the level of 250% of debt to GDP a war “breaks out.” The fact that the G7 have a 440% level of debt to GDP and we are in a time of peace is very significant.

We consider this to be proof positive that God is restraining the powers of earth to prevent WWIII, and the destruction of Billions of lives. In short, a fulfillment of this prophecy.

I saw that this world was rocked in the cradle of security so that communications might not be cut off from place to place, and that messengers might have full time to carry the message to the children of God, that they receive it and be sealed with the seal of the living God, and be prepared to pass through the time of trouble such as never was. I saw that it must be a time of peace in order for the servants of God to do their work for souls. Vision of May 14, 1851. This can be downloaded for free from our download page.

Choose file No. 3, it’s at the top of the page.

Because of this global positioning, economially, I would guess that God is doing this positioning in preparation for the loud cry. It is my opinion, that America, the home base of this message, will be ground zero for the main event, to be watched closely by the rest of the world, on TV and the net.

It is the two horned beast, No. 6, page 22, that makes Sunday a test, not the image. Therefore, America, in some form, will remain through, to the time of trouble such as never was. At that time, it matters not what happens politically, everyone is sealed, Christ is on the way, the wicked soon to lay, all glory of man in the dust of the earth for God’s glory.

Eternity is very, very near. It’s high time to be ripening for Heaven!

“And when thou art converted.”

You will remember that, that’s what Jesus told Peter. But Peter had been with the Word all this time, about three years. Why is it that he was not converted? Apparently ten of the twelve were converted.

Daniel says, “Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried.” Under the second angel’s message about 50,000 people came out of the fallen churches and waited on October 22, 1844 for Christ to come. He did not come. They were “purified, and made white, and tried,” and many of them failed the test. They left the faith. By some estimates there were only about fifty who remained faithful.

What is it in the heart of man that “I” would fail the test?

It’s amazing that Christ said this about Nathanael, “Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!” How could he say that about the man? Because he is God. God reads our hearts and knows who should be saved and who should not get the hidden words of God, the mystery of kingdom of God, Mark 4:11.

On this site we are following God’s instruction in Matthew.

There is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. Matthew 10:26-27

You might get a lot of information, you might be witness to much, as was Simon in Acts 8, but, you might not be right with God. Remember that he reads every secret of your heart. All this might be the source of these words.

I turned to look for the Advent people in the world, but could not find them, when a voice said to me, Look again, and look a little higher. At this, I raised my eyes and see a strait and narrow path, cast up high above the world. On this path the Advent people were traveling to the City, which was at the farther end of the path. They had a bright light set up behind them at the first end of the path, which an angel told me was the Midnight Cry. This light shone all along the path and gave light for their feet so they might not stumble. And if they kept their eyes fixed on Jesus, who was just before them, leading them to the City, they were safe. But soon some grew weary, and said the City was a great way off, and they expected to have entered it before. Then Jesus would encourage them by raising his glorious right arm, and from his arm came a glorious light which waved over the Advent band, and they shouted, Hallelujah! Others rashly denied the light behind them, and said that it was not God that had led them out so far. The light behind them went out which left their feet in perfect darkness, and they stumbled and got their eyes off the mark and lost sight of Jesus, and fell off the path down in the dark and wicked world below. It was just as impossible for them to get on the path again & go to the City, as all the wicked world which God had rejected. They fell all the way along the path one after another, until we heard the voice of God like many waters, which gave us the day and hour of Jesus’ coming. The Day-Star

The words in red communicate certain things without stating them explicitly. The word “they” indicates those who profess the truth. The path is the strait and narrow way to the City, and it should be remembered that it goes all the way to the City. The falling off the path is, of course, leaving the faith.

Here is the critical point, people are falling off the path, or, leaving the faith “until we heard the voice of God.” This hearing of God’s voice happens AT the deliverance of the saints, 1858 Great Controversy, page 205. Meaning that some, apparently, will be giving up the faith during the time of trouble such as never was, the time of Jacob’s trouble. It would appear that they were not sealed even though professing the faith and going through, or nearly through, the time of trouble. God, who knows all things, knows what none of the rest of the saints knows, that is, that this person is not right with him and should not be saved.

Like Peter, they know not themselves. They withstand some trials, some of the time of trouble such as never was, some hardships, but God reads their hearts, their inner secrets, and there is no more time for character formation. If this be so, doubtless they will not suffer much in the fires of the last day. We have so much to be grateful for that God is just and righteous altogether.

Be careful with God. This is not a game, not a social club, this is real.

As we contemplate the probable near future… this portion from No. 8 looks worthy of a review. Too many times we get in a rut and forget to broaden our reading to full scope of what we have available. This reads a little differently, but is in perfect harmony with the 1858 Great Controversy as well as the rest of the Spirit of Prophecy.

The Future. p. 112, Para. 3, [8OT].
At the transfiguration Jesus was glorified by his Father. We hear him say, “Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.” Thus before his betrayal and crucifixion he was strengthened for his last dreadful sufferings. p. 112, Para. 4, [8OT].

As the members of the body of Christ approach the period of their last conflict, “the time of Jacob’s trouble,” they will grow up into Christ, and will partake largely of his Spirit. As the third message swells to a loud cry, and as great power and glory attends the closing work, the faithful people of God will partake of that glory. It is the latter rain which revives and strengthens them to pass through the time of trouble. Their faces [minds] will shine [teach God’s Word] with the glory of that light [the Word] which attends the third angel. p. 112, Para. 5, [8OT].

I saw that God would in a wonderful manner preserve his people through the time of trouble. As Jesus poured out his soul in agony in the garden, they will earnestly cry and agonize with him day and night for deliverance. The decree will go forth that they must disregard the Sabbath of the fourth commandment, and honor the first day, or lose their lives; but they will not yield, and trample under their feet the Sabbath of the Lord, and honor an institution of Papacy. Satan’s host, and wicked men, will surround them, and exult over them, because there will seem to be no way of escape for them. But in the midst of their revelry and triumph, there is peal upon peal of the loudest thunder. The heavens have gathered blackness, and are only illuminated by the blazing light and terrible glory from Heaven, as God utters his voice from his holy habitation. p. 112, Para. 6, [8OT].

Here is the special resurrection of only the righteous saints that have “died in faith under the third angel’s message, keeping the Sabbath.” 1858 Great Controversy, page 205.

The foundations of the earth shake, buildings totter and fall with a terrible crash. The sea boils like a pot, and the whole earth is in terrible commotion. The captivity of the righteous is turned, and with sweet and solemn whisperings they say to each other, “We are delivered. It is the voice of God.” With solemn awe they listen to the words of the voice. The wicked hear, but understand not the words of the voice of God. They fear and tremble, while the saints rejoice. Satan and his angels, and wicked men, who had been exulting that the people of God were in their power, that they might destroy them from off the earth, witness the glory conferred upon those who have honored the holy law of God. They behold the faces of the righteous lighted up, and reflecting the image of Jesus. Those who were so eager to destroy the saints, could not endure the glory resting upon the delivered ones, and they fell like dead men to the earth. Satan and evil angels fled from the presence of the saints glorified. Their power to annoy them was gone forever. p. 113, Para. 1, [8OT].

Remember that the image of Jesus can only be acquired this side of the close of probation. We must get ready now!

The recent revelations about the .gov’s spying on everyone, through whistleblower Edward Snowden, are proof that those who laugh at the “tinfoil hat” crowd are wrong. The “conspiracy theory” crowd are publicly justified as conspiracy facts are piled upon more such facts.

I just had a Google/.gov event this morning June 12, 2013, my personal email account was disabled and I was forced to use my personal phone number to get a passcode by text. This allowed them to create a positive ID to my phone and sort out some recent changes in my habits.

It is my settled opinion that the actions of Edward Snowden, and others,
http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-06-12/ex-nsa-leakers-advice-snowden-always-check-your-six
are in fact God at work, using whosoever he will, as represented to us in the four angels holding the four winds, to hold the Satanic powers of evil in check… until… it’s time, the Loud Cry has sounded and man’s last hour has been spent… and the cases of all are decided for eternity.

We must remember the words of warning God delivered to us on November 18, 1848 at the mouth of his prophet Ellen.  It’s on the increase [the time of trouble (not the time of trouble such as never was, click here to study this)], and will increase more and more; the trouble will never end until the earth is rid of the wicked.

There will be little backward steps taken by the .gov’s; we are steadily moving into the jaws of hell–the time of trouble such as never was, as a country.

Waco Texas, the Oklahoma City bombing, the twin towers of New York City all share a common conspiracy—the perpetrators locked down the crime-scene and destroyed the evidence. Most recently at the Sandy Hook shooting and the Boston Marathon bombing, the same exact woman was interviewed at each location, portrayed as a victim by the media.

Americans as a whole are brainwashed by the programing that comes through TV. If that is a problem in your life, you need to take drastic steps to secure your salvation. Get rid of your TV, if you have one. Most people who follow this blog or site do not allow Satan that kind of access to their minds.

The programing coming from the TV prevents people from securing a proper perception of reality. This is the reason millions believe the lies of the .gov’s in America.

There is no digital privacy any more.

Assertions of protecting your privacy by the various companies are a joke.

If you are going to do something that needs to be private, you are going to have to take extraordinary measures and keep your head about you. Remember, the other side literally has unlimited resources. Don’t be stupid about what you do. As Jim Rohn says, “casualness leads to casualties.”

We are in the business of doing the Lord’s work. Time is short. What we do not do, must be left undone… for eternity. The angels will not do our work. In the counterfeit SOP reality is twisted to deceive and keep you off the strait and narrow path—THE only path to the City, God’s appointed way and there is no other.

While we are on the topic… I was led to another one, another lie about the close of probation.

“At that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: The time of trouble has already begun. We hear continually of riots and accidents, of murders and robberies. Human life is no longer safe unless under the protection of God. God’s servants must not be surprised that they meet with great difficulties and persecution at this time. In His day, the world’s Redeemer, the Son of God, was shamefully treated by the people He came to bless. He had to go from city to city to ensure His safety, and this persecution followed Him until His work on earth was accomplished. [21MR101.05] p. 77, Para. 8, [1907MS ].

This was republished on the White Estate CD, with the sentence before the quote changed to something different. Here is the reference: {21MR 101.5}

There you have it! And just to review and confirm, there are two “time of trouble”(s). These are adequately distinguished by the full name, not the shortened. From The Day-Star, second part, we read, “And I saw the time of trouble, such as never was, —Jesus told me it was the time of Jacob’s trouble,…” This is the time of trouble that starts after the close of probation.

The other time of trouble, the one which precedes the time of Jacob’s trouble, God told us November 18, 1848, that it had started. A Sealing Message, by Joseph Bates, 1849. This can be further confirmed by reading Christian Experience and Views, page 17, in combination with it’s  Supplement, page 3.

Yesterday’s item got sent out to someone who is known to be a supporter of the sophistry (SOP–his–try) of the enemy. In order to get around the obvious, they claimed that Ellen was in vision and speaking in present tense. Not true.

The sentence has two parts, separated by a comma.

 Let all read and understand the prophecies of this book, for we are now entering upon the time of trouble spoken of: (Dan. 12:1-4, quoted.)

The word for looks like a conjunction to me, as it connects the two parts. I’m going to call the first part instructive, or an exhortation; and does the writer suddenly go into vision? I think not! It is purely informational, a fact stated –albeit wrongly!!! which makes it the lie that it is!

Be careful, prove all things.

Thursday April 11, 2013

Today we have another one for the List of Lies. It comes to us from a manuscript release. Which is an interesting thing of itself. Why has the church withheld these things for so long? All persons involved have long since died. What is the holdup?

I’ll tell you why, in part. It’s because there is too much of this sort of thing, contradiction after contradiction. It’s a little hard to deal with for them.

Back to today. Here is the quotation. Note that there are two references for it.

Scenes similar to those described in these words will take place. We see evidence that Satan is fast obtaining the control of human minds who have not the fear of God before them. Let all read and understand the prophecies of this book, for we are now entering upon the time of trouble spoken of: (Dan. 12:1-4, quoted.) [13MR394.02] p. 84, Para. 8, [1904MS ]. & [Unpublished Manuscripts, Volume 1 p. 137 para. 1] p. 569, Para. 3, [1904MS ].

I am not sure you guys understand what you are reading. The text attached to this quote is Daniel 12:1-4. Let’s take a look at it.

And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.  Daniel 12:1

    And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.  Daniel 12:2

    And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.  Daniel 12:3

    But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.  Daniel 12:4

Now go back and read the quotation. This is amazing to me!!! If ever the church should suppress something, I would think this would be in the top 40. That stupid quotation is saying that probation HAS closed, that’s what it’s saying!

I say now! people who try to defend the counterfeit sure got their work cut out!!!

I sit at my desk and try to remain calm. Really, I want to go to some GC meeting and start yelling at them. You know, work off some steam! I grew up in that church, fifty years I spent in the darkness of it’s shadow. I PRAISE GOD!!!! for the light of day!!!

Some people do not care. Well, this message is not for them. This message is for the poor, hungry, scattered sheep. All the honest in heart will be rescued. Just like Rahab, God will do anything to make sure every precious soul is gathered up.

Remember William Miller’s dream? ALL the precious jewels are gathered by Christ. “Although some of the diamonds were not bigger than the point of a pin.” And that, folks, is small!!!

God is looking at eternity. Every soul is precious. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life,” John 3:16.  Does that mean anything to you? It means all to me. All.

We have a hope and a sure word of truth, a pure light, the light of day. God has created this light just as he created you and me. It’s purity can not be measured by the world. Pure, clean, free for the asking, to whosoever will! Come! Come, for all things are ready! Choose the right! Anchor to this truth, this Rock, he will never fail!

James wrote an article in A Word to the Little Flock, titled, The Voice of God. We will look at an excerpt today, to show that James understood the greater light, which is spiritual things spiritually understood.

Because of the leading roll James was given by God in his church, we can do well to understand and learn from the things he says, as he teaches prophecy dealing with the immediate future. Because it has been 168 years is not evidence that it will take another 168 years, but it is evidence that he could come this very year!

As the signs in the sun, moon, and stars, have been literal, the shaking of the powers of the heavens, Mat. 24:29, must also be literal. p. 6, Para. 3, [WLF].

This sign is not in the past, and as it is a sign, it must come prior to the advent itself. p. 6, Para. 4, [WLF].

Therefore, it is clear, that this last sign will appear when the “Lord roars out of Zion,” and shakes the heavens and the earth. We believe that the signs in Rev. 6:12-14, are the same as in Mat. 24:29, and Mark, 13:24,25. Then the shaking of the powers of the heavens, Mat. 24:29, is the same as the heavens departing “as a scroll, when it is rolled together.” Rev. 6:14: for they both follow the falling of the stars. p. 6, Para. 5, [WLF].

Notice this incredible use of the language of Heaven, this greater light that rules the day, by James as he teaches.

Now what is this heaven that is to be shaken and rolled together as a scroll? We may not see this event so clearly now, as we shall about the time of its fulfilment; but still, it is our duty to receive, and cherish all the light that we can see on this, or any other future event. As we travel onward toward the Holy City, our burning lamps discover new objects: but we cannot see all at once. If we reject a little light, because we cannot see the whole clearly at once, it will displease our heavenly leader; and we shall be left in the dark. But if we cherish the light, as fast as it is our Lord’s will to open it to us, he will increase the light; and our souls will feast upon the opening truths of the blessed bible. p. 6, Para. 6, [WLF].

The word heaven, is applied to at least four places or things in the scriptures. 1st, It is applied to Paradise, where St. Paul was taken in vision, 2Cor. 12:2-4. 2nd. To the region of the sun, moon, and stars, Gen. 1:8-17. 3d. To the atmosphere which encompasses this earth, in which the fowls of heaven fly. Rev. 19:17,18. And 4th, To the church of God on earth. Rev. 14:6,7.

This definition surprised me! I had no idea! This is the beauty of being a humble learner, willing to be taught by whoever God chooses to use to teach. Otherwise, in our own wis(e)dumb we loose. Sad.

 It cannot be Paradise, nor the region of the heavenly lights, neither the church of God on earth, that is to be shaken and rolled together as a scroll: therefore, it must be the air around the earth, in which the fowls of heaven fly. p. 6, Para. 7, [WLF].

“And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the AIR; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven from the throne, saying, It is done.” Rev. 16:17. p. 6, Para. 8, [WLF].

We may now see that it is the seventh vial, and voice of God, which will shake the powers of the heavens, and cause the great earthquake or the shaking of the earth: and that this event constitutes the last literal sign, just before the sign of the Son of man appears in heaven. p. 6, Para. 9, [WLF].

    It seems clear that all the vials, the voice of God from the throne, the voices, and thunders, and lightnings, and the great earthquake, and the falling of the cities of the nations, and the removing of the mountains and the islands, are to take place before the advent. p. 6, Para. 10, [WLF].

This view no doubt, will at once be rejected by many who profess to be looking for Jesus every day and hour; but I think it will appear very plain, by comparing Rev. 16:17- 21, with chap. 6:14-17. p. 7, Para. 1, [WLF].

After the heavens depart “as a scroll when rolled together,” and the “mountains and islands are moved out of their places,” “the kings of the earth, and great men, etc.” “hide in the dens, and in the rocks of the mountains,” from the awful glory of the coming Jesus, attended by “all the holy angels;” and call for the rocks and mountains to fall on them, and hide them from the brightness of his coming (which is to destroy all the living wicked at his coming. – 2Thess. 2:8.); and overwhelmed with anguish, in view of their expected fate, (when Christ and the angels draw near the earth to raise and gather the elect,) they cry out: “For the great day of his wrath is come, and who shall be able to stand?” – Rev. 6:17. p. 7, Para. 2, [WLF].

PWWT, the acronym for the patient, waiting, watching, time. I used to think it was a time where nothing was happening, just a character forming time, but that was it. Think back to yesterday’s post. God has made it a testing time, a special testing time.

It’s like when Christ was on earth, Mark 4:10 – 12.

And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable. And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.

You don’t get light to see unless you do something extra to get it. Your ability to understand the truth is attitude dependant. If you come in the sin of pride, that idol of self will drive away the Holy Ghost and you will receive instruction from another spirit, and go your own way and think you are right, when you are wrong.

That’s one test. Another test is working for God as his servant. Everyone should be aware that the work you fail to do will not be done by the angels. We have written about this four other times, here, here, here, and here.

People are being spiritually slaughtered every day. In this battle the cry of “MEDIC!!!” is heard resounding across the field. Satan’s arrows find their mark in ones who cherish sin. But in the bigger picture, there are massive movements by Satan’s forces. They are preparing for the final battle and know it not.

We are actually speaking about the final battle before probation closes. The truly final battle is after the third coming and is a no-contest battle for Christ has already won.

This final battle will involve all the Protestant churches of America. All those good, conservative people who are deceived into thinking Sunday is God’s Sabbath. This group is figured and called Babylon by God’s word.

Think now about what you know about earth’s final days, literally. Sunday is made a test, the loud cry is God’s response, all the honest in heart leave Babylon, probation closes, the time of trouble such as never was begins, the saints are delivered by the voice of the Father, Christ comes. Now look at these verses.

    Put yourselves in array against Babylon [see above] round about: all ye that bend the bow [use God’s word correctly], shoot at her, spare no arrows [God’s words]: for she hath sinned against the LORD.  Jeremiah 50:14

    Shout against her round about: she hath given her hand: her foundations are fallen, her walls are thrown down: for it is the vengeance of the LORD: take vengeance upon her; as she hath done, do unto her.  Jeremiah 50:15

    Cut off the sower [the one planting bad seed] from Babylon, and him that handleth the sickle [Satan’s agents keeping people in the church] in the time of harvest: for fear of the oppressing sword [God’s word] they shall turn every one to his people, and they shall flee every one to his own land.  Jeremiah 50:16

We believe these verses to be a description of part of this battle that is on-going through the patient, waiting, watching, time. Just on the surface, it takes time for these things to happen, and there is little to no time for this during the final events.

The second verse starts with a phrase that sounds like the loud cry. When you overlay the figure of the battle of Jericho on this verse, you get a rich match. So it’s application to the loud cry could be a fit.

The first and the third verses take more time, or so it seems at this point of our study. And there are many other texts that similarly appear to be pointing at the patient, waiting, watching, time for a fulfillment.

Viewed from a spiritual perspective it becomes much easier to apply these texts to our current day. Notice the flood of evil in it’s many forms. It covers the land! Out of this caldron of sin God is separating a people. He is leading them to stand separate from the world, sin, and sinners. They can only stand in his strength.

Satan has thousands of delusions. Some go for this, some go for that, it matters not what it is. Satan is happy to have people going to church, thinking they are all right, when they are all wrong.

Spiritually the massacre is subtle. Pride, love of the world, anything that comes between you and your preparation for Heaven and the spiritual murder of that soul is complete. The battle rages… spiritually…, remember yesterday’s post, God allows voices of instruction to fall silent. His angels are recording the names of those who are going around asking about those silent voices. “Hey, I’ve heard about an old testimony that says how God’s people are to dress. Do you know about that?” they ask.

I always used to search out the old ones, the old men and women and seemed willing to teach something. The ones that looked like maybe they had something to teach. The ones that could give a coherent answer to a question, and were not afraid to tell you when they did not know.

It’s battle time.
