As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. (Matthew 24:37-39 NSRV)
The Old and New Testaments of the Bible prophesy a seven-year period of global chaos, suffering, death and destruction popularly known as the Apocalypse, the Last Days, the Great Tribulation or “the end of the world.” These prophetic visions are not easy to understand. They use fantastic symbolism and shift perspectives between heaven and earth. Most prophecies focus on Israel, Jerusalem and the promise of a coming Jewish Messiah who will bring 1,000 years of peace, justice and prosperity to everyone in the world who survives the years of trial.
The big question about these prophecies has always been when they will happen. But the questions of “what” and “where” are important too. Many have avoided these questions by simply writing off God as the product of human imagination and relegating the Bible to the world’s collection of myths and moral stories. Although proving the validity of the Bible and/or the reality of God is not the objective of my writings, I do think that what I have discovered and share in these pages will confirm both points with conviction.
Daniel, a remarkable Jewish scholar, wrote in 526 BC about several visions he had from God concerning the distant future, which is our present and near future. Some of his predictions have already come to pass—like Jesus appearing as Israel’s promised Messiah. That fulfillment of Bible prophecy occurred more than five hundred years after it was written!
Many of Daniel’s prophecies have yet take place, and the likelihood of their taking place in the next few years is no less certain than Jesus’ birth, death and resurrection were to Daniel in 526 BC. Jesus, when answering his disciples’ questions about the last days, told them to study Daniel’s prophecies. (Mathew 24:15) In AD 96 Jesus gave the apostle John a great deal of additional information, which formed the Bible’s last book called “The Revelation of Jesus Christ to John.” Revelation’s prophecies build on Daniel’s. Both prophets foretold the end of our present civilization in a series of cataclysmic events similar to the destruction of humanity’s first great civilization by the great Flood of Noah's day.
Some Bible scholars have treated these important prophecies about the last days of rebellious human history as spiritual allegories that possess only moral or theological significance. That approach made the question of “when” unnecessary and the prophecies themselves irrelevant to daily life.
Over the centuries other brave souls have dared to forecast the exact date when the Apocalypse would occur. Most were probably sincere. Many made an intentional profit out of their predictions. Of course, all of these past predictions about the dating of the Apocalypse were wrong, so today most refuse to seriously ask the question, “When will these things be?”
Predicting future events requires either a direct revelation from God or some detailed inside information about his plan for the universe. My books cover what the Bible reveals about God's plan for humanity and how that plan follows an observable pattern. If we can decipher that pattern properly, we can accurately predict the details of its outcome, including specific dates and locations.
I have written and published two books that can be found in or ordered by most book stores. I have also published it on the Internet. These two books focus on what the Apocalypse reveals to us about God’s plan for humanity as well as a summary of what to expect as the Apocalypse unfolds. I give specific dates for many events. I believe that these dates are reliable but not absolutely guaranteed because my work is subject to human error as is any other person’s. But the question of whether God will judge our present civilization or not is absolutely a definite positive, and most Bible students of prophecy think that the time of that judgment is coming soon.
My books developed out of a discovery I made in studying in Daniel’s prophecies. I call it the Bible’s Rosetta Stone. The consequences of this discovery are on the same scale as those that came from an historic archeological find made in Egypt by Napoleon’s troops around 1800. This Egyptian Rosetta stone is a sizable piece of inscribed rock that communicated a single message three times with each parallel repetition being written in a different language. Two of the languages were known. The other was the then unknown hieroglyphs found painted or carved on ancient Egypt’s tombs and monuments built by the Pharaohs and other high Egyptian officials from as early as 5,000 years ago. By comparing the hieroglyphs on the Rosetta stone with the other two languages, scholars were able to translate their meaning. Because of that discovery, today we can read about the religious myths, histories and many other aspects of that ancient civilization.
My own studies of biblical prophecy started out when I learned about an obscure Hebrew Alphabet Number System. I started to turn the pages of the Bible like I used to turn over stones in the forest when I was a boy just to satisfy my curiosity about what was under them. This natural inclination to curiosity has carried over into my life in a number of other ways, too. For one, as you may have already read, I became a successful inventor of many hi-tech components and instruments developed during the first wave of Silicon Valley’s hi-tech research explosion in the 1960s and 1970s.
Examining the Hebrew Alphabet Number System from a Christian perspective opened up new territory in biblical understanding for me. I was ignorant of Jewish culture, holy days, traditions and ancient writings like the Torah. I applied the same research approaches to the Bible that had rewarded me as an inventor trained to figure out how to commercially apply the new laws of electronics and physics in order to solve hi-tech problems or to make a new product for sale. I became fascinated with the results that came from applying this same, successful research methodology to try to understand some of the many important Bible mysteries about the past and the future.
I now focused my uncommon gift of structured curiosity from God on the specifics of the seven-year Apocalypse first written about by Daniel over 500 years before Christ. Jesus recommended reading Daniel’s prophecies about the last days, so I did. Then I set about to write what I found down in a book. This has been a difficult challenge for me as I am not a writer. It was further complicated by the on-going process of discovery as I continue to learn.
My investigation into the Bible’s Rosetta Stone increased my curiosity in the Hebrew Alphabet Number System, which in turn led me to other discoveries which I lined up like pearls on a bracelet. I realized that most people around the world are just as unfamiliar with these ancient Hebrew concepts and traditions as I had been. They would have no idea what I was writing about because they are unfamiliar with the Bible or Jewish culture. I was confronted with a seemingly impossible task as I began to write.
In the end my one book became two as I have attempted to explain the ancient Jewish context of Biblical prophecy. The Rosetta Stone 7:5 ratio unlocks the understanding to many important scriptures so that we can begin to see a total picture of Why, When and What will happen after 2008. My first book gives an overview of God’s plan for humanity and the role that the Apocalypse plays in it. In the process I give a fairly detailed overview of those seven years of trial and tribulation. My second book explains my research methods and how I applied the Bible’s Rosetta Stone 7:5 ratio, which is comparable to the binary system in computer language. It also reveals that the number 7 is the middle of a list of 12 items or characteristics as 4 is the middle whole integer of 7.
My first book, Apocalypse Prophesied, is written from the perspective of this Rosetta Stone discovery. Daniel’s prophecies reveal and describe God’s 7,000-year plan for humanity. As recorded by Daniel and others, God has given prophecy in two dimensions as represented by two parallel numeric systems: one is 7-based and the other is 5-based. According to the Rosetta Stone principle, the Daleth (Hebrew letter for “d” or “4”) dimension of our material universe of time and space is based on a numeric system of 7 while the Heh (Hebrew letter for “h” or “5”) or heavenly dimension is found in the Bible as a 5-based system. The 7-day week is the most familiar example of a Daleth dimension number, and the 50 year Jubilee is the most familiar example of a Heh dimension number.
The Heh dimension of eternity already contains the whole spectrum of human history and prophecy. It has the whole 7,000 years of God’s plan laid out like the spectral signatures identifying all the natural elements are embedded in the colors of the rainbow. According to this analogy, the spectral lines buried within the seven main colors of the rainbow behave like a chronological mechanism that marks the dates when events of the future Apocalypse laid out in the Heh dimension will become reality in the Daleth dimension of our material uiverse of space and time.
In another sense we find the book of Daniel is full of 7s while the book of Revelation written by the Apostle John is full of 5s. Thus, Daniel represents the “7” and Revelation the “5” in the Rosetta Stone’s 7:5 ratio. As I continue to study the Bible, I am discovering that the Rosetta Stone seems to be imbedded throughout the Bible.
Bible prophecy is like a miniature Russian toy egg, which has many nested eggs of the same design, one within the other. My two books are structured similarly. Like a Russian toy egg, the 7-year pattern of chronological events lies within the 7,000 years of human history as a smaller egg aligned and enclosed within the larger one. For this same reason, we have two separate books. To sum it up, Daniel covers 7,000 years of human history and the book of Revelation covers the 7 years of future human history and some dates unknown to us.
I also applied what I call the Hebrew Alphabet Number System. Hebrew letters connote specific sets of imbedded meanings as well as express numerical values. This means that ideas can be simultaneously expressed on different levels by either writing a number or a letter. In my two books I will teach you how to apply them.
The contents of my books confound many theologians. Some Christian scholars are upset because of what I so plainly see written in the Bible. They have yet to really come to terms with what God has revealed He is doing, and how He is going to intervene soon in the affairs of humanity. Some of my discoveries overturn ingrained aspects of belief systems cherished for centuries. Thousands of published pages and books of scholarly opinions sanctioned by Christian seminars are now made obsolete by the Bible’s Rosetta Stone. I have expected my books to create a storm of controversies, similar that created by the Egyptian Rosetta stone as it became more known in the public consciousness from around 1820.
Some scientists say that I must have lost my mind. The public asks, “You mean our modern civilization will vanish?”
The answer is that our modern world will soon be radically different from the way it has been for the last 6,000 years, and it will never be the same again!
Conventional wisdom states “where there is smoke, there is fire.” As the Lord makes possible, we are translating and publishing these two books, Apocalypse Prophesied and Mystery of Tammuz 17, in other languages - both on the Internet and in print. I am afraid that they will unnecessarily divide the Christian establishment, but I cannot neglect my responsibility to share what God has shown me in His Word.
The life of this book should be short-lived since it predicts the date of 21 December 2008 for the beginning of the Apocalypse. This present age will come to an end in 2015 after which God, the Creator of Heaven and earth, will birth a new civilization founded on His divine governmental system. The Bible predicts that it will bring a thousand years of peace and prosperity for all people everywhere.
The prophecies of the Bible are structured according to an intelligently designed system that conforms to the natural laws of physics. Like the genes within a living cell or like the physics described by Dr. Albert Einstein’s mathematical equations, Bible Prophecy interconnects with the natural framework of the space-time dimension of our universe and planet.
Why should God’s plan for humanity be structured differently from the rest of His Creation? When he created time, He divided it into past, present and future for His divine purpose. Past or future is not really any different for Him, though time can be a critical factor in human affairs. We are given only so many years of mortal life, for example.
My discovery of a “Rosetta stone” in Daniel’s cornerstone prophecy in the Bible left me no other option than to write about it. Now it is up to you to read them and consider their content carefully. I believe that what you read will change your life, even if you don’t agree with everything I have written.
Read my books and become informed. Yes, even if you have a PhD, I guarantee that you will become more educated about these vital issues. Life questions should be our highest priority, and information concerning your survival is more important than the busy work of your daily tasks. In the very least you will need to decide about your investments, but frankly, the prospect for your eternal life is far more important than your retirement account.
Take a break and entertain a new perspective about your life. Ask some of the really important questions, “Where am I going? How should I plan my life? What if that ‘crazy’ hi-tech inventor is right?”
As I examine our orderly universe, I have noticed that humanity has a number of viewpoints about its nature. In the west we basically have two diametrically opposed viewpoints about the universe. The biblical one states that all things were created for God’s purpose, which I have termed “God’s Plan for Humanity.” The materialistic viewpoint, usually presented as science, postulates a random universe that arose by chance that exists for no other purpose than that it is, for as long as it will be. Which is it? Both cannot be true.
My first book, Apocalypse Prophesied, describes God’s 7,000-year plan for this earth, as supported by 1,000 Bible references. This plan includes 6,000 years of human history and 1,000 years of prophetic events yet to take place. With its many verses it has become like a miniature Bible that explains the Creator’s plan for humanity and the reasons why we exist. The 10th chapter of this book focuses on the cuckoo clock analogy. It is a summary explanation of special historic events that correspond to parallel events that will take place during the 7 years of the Great Tribulation. We have a saying that history repeats itself, and my two books demonstrate where it does so prophetically.
My second book, Mystery of Tammuz 17, explains the methodology I used to determine the dates of the Apocalypse. It also discusses the collapse of our present civilization and other prophesied events of those seven years. I make correlations with the Hebrew Alphabet Number System as well as with the Aztec calendar and the Chinese zodiac cycles.
I invite you to journey with me in these books as we move from one concept to another, presented in roughly the order that I discovered them.
I never thought I would write a book. I am an inventor of high-tech devices by profession and making cuckoo clocks was once my hobby. These days I spend more time playing my accordion than making clocks. But for the past two years or so, I have spent more time with my computer keyboard than with my accordion’s keyboard!
If you want to learn a little bit more about who I am, then read my Forward, Who is Herbert R. Stollorz? If you are still hung up on the dates, then you can skip to the end and read my Postscript, Can God Change His Schedule?
Within the context of eternity, anyone I meet or who reads my books is my friend. As a faithful friend, should I not wake you up from sleeping if I see that your house is on fire and there is still time to escape? It would be a shame if I waited for a professional fire marshal to tell you after the fact, when it was too late.
I have no choice but to proclaim God’s coming judgment to a world gone terribly wrong. I believe the events described in my books will definitely happen. God has used me to write this all down for you. Please ask him for understanding as you read.
My hope is that you will prepare yourself spiritually for what lies ahead. You do not need to believe what I say just because I say it. Let God’s written Word persuade you.
If you choose not to heed this warning, you will perish, regardless of your religious background. God has sent a warning, and he will execute his judgment.
The Apocalypse will take place from
21 December 2008 to 21 December 2015.
Be warned. Be prepared.
