The Great Day of the Lord,
Part 2: The Seventh Seal
(22 May 2015 – 21 December 2015)
What are angels? Why is God sending four death angels?
Who and how many will survive the Apocalypse? Who won’t?
The Seventh Trumpet, the Seven Thunders, Rainbows, the Unprepared Virgins, and other mysteries explained
Fast of Gedaliah, Tishri 3, 5776 (September 16, 2015)
I always look for the gears that mark the passage of time in the World Cuckoo Clock. God teaches from what has been recorded and what has been revealed to explain why it must happen the way He desires. Pay attention to the number seven (7), which in Hebrew is the letter Zayin – meaning “sword, strife, war or pain.”
For the 13 days from 4 September to 17 September 2015, God will pour out His wrath on the rebellious armies that have come against Him. Simultaneous with the massive earthquake that levels the major cities of the world described in the previous chapter, four death angels will deliver massive doses of death and destruction upon the non-repentant masses of humanity. Combined, these events will be the deadliest two weeks that the earth will ever suffer. Many millions will die.
On 1 Tishri 5776 (14 September 2015) the civil Hebrew calendar begins a New Year (Rosh Hashanah or the Feast of Trumpets). The Fast of Gedaliah (3 Tishri 5776, 16 September 2015) commemorates the end of Jewish government under the ancient Babylonians, but in these last days it overlays with the end of this very last Gentile occupation of Jerusalem. Gedaliah was the righteous governor that Babylon had left in charge of conquered Judea. He was murdered by jealous elements serving the hostile king of neighboring Amman. His murder is remembered by a fast, which figuratively equates the death of the righteous with the destruction of the Temple. With Gedaliah’s murder the remaining Jews who had survived the Babylonian invasions and conquest fled in fear to the surrounding nations like Egypt.
Tishri is the first month of Israel’s civil calendar but the seventh month of the religious calendar. The religious year always begins in the Northern Hemisphere’s spring with the month of Nisan, the month of the Passover. The Jewish civil year of 5776 begins a new age of time and a new government under the coming messianic King of Israel.
Since the events and dating of Apocalypse are embedded in the Jewish holidays, the pattern of these festivals and fasts overlays the pattern of the Great Apocalypse’s seven years as well as God’s seven thousand year historic-prophetic plan for humanity.
Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar before God, saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, "Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates." So the four angels were released, who had been held ready for the hour, the day, the month, and the year, to kill a third of humankind. (Revelation 9:13-15 NRSV)
Religion and philosophy can explain natural occurrences, but the Apocalypse will bring humanity face-to-face with the supernatural. The following discourse will be difficult to understand by anyone educated in western civilization because we have been brought up to trust only what we can perceive and test with our five senses: touch, sight, smell, taste and sound. The supernatural or spiritual dimension exists beyond the boundaries of our five senses.
Most accept that a sixth sense exists, but we cannot quantitatively measure it, so responsible discussion of the sixth sense lies buried among book shelves of obscurity. What most people know about the sixth sense they learn from fictional entertainment about the occult or from reading the many popularized presentations of occult themes and practices.
The mystery is that people are not just physical. How else can one rationally explain love, poetry, life, death, or even God? The Bible confronts us with statements about and descriptions of the sixth dimension of the spirit that the natural person has no answers for. The Bible just lays it all out plainly without debate; it does not care if you believe it.
For example, there is a reality that is experienced by all present when somebody dies. Death is a transition. When we pass from this earth, sometimes a curtain is lifted from the unknown. We cannot see the other side, but we sense it. We tend to either reject outright or too easily trust what we seem to sense or learn about the other side. We cannot check out its authenticity or legitimacy except from experience or from living according to what we read or are taught about these matters. If the application of what we learn works out, then we accept it as truth, meaning a reality for our lives.
Faith in the Bible operates a little differently. God makes many promises that are written in the Bible. Some of them require a visitation from the other side in the form of mediation of the Holy Spirit in order to be understood as truth. Jesus taught that we must be born again to inherit eternal life. He said, “Open the door, and I will come in,” and “Seek and you will find” the spiritual understanding that leads to life in him.
Anything I write will make no sense to some people and be obvious to others. To some, this book will mean nothing and to others, everything! The problem is not that the writer scribbles nonsense. The issue is whether the true Inner Light that makes spiritual sense of the same written words is found in the reader. That is what makes the difference. It explains why the same message considered confusing or meaningless by one person is embraced enthusiastically by another.
When the Bible says something that clashes with our intellect, then we must further search God’s word for additional clarifications from other contexts. By comparing and contrasting them we should be able to identify a pattern. For example, God said that humanity at Noah’s time was continually evil. This reality caused him pain and regret that he had even made humans in his own image. He had to act. Looking back, we can apply the lessons from the revealed experience of Noah’s age to our modern day world.
Once again God is very angry with humanity, and he has again decided to actively cleanse the earth of evil. However, this time he will also eliminate any further presence of evil in heaven by denying the devil and the demons any place in the heavenlies or any further access to his throne.
God is going to replace the human governments of all nations with a new constitution based on his spiritual laws of goodness, justice and love. For the first time on earth, people will experience the kind of wonderful life that God has desired for us all along. I discovered in the Rosetta Stone that God will change the nature humans and combine the five-based dimension with the seven-based dimension. This change also means that people living in the millennium will be able to see into the future.
But until that time comes, God must first remove all evil from the earth. Rebellious men will not fit in that new society. The present, corrupt human civilization is the placenta portion of the new age of God’s kingdom about to be birthed. It gets destroyed while the baby is birthed in love and treasured all his life.
The problem we face is: Who are the people that make up the “baby”? Who will be permitted to survive the Great Apocalypse? Who will make it through this transition of trial to the future world of God’s reign on earth?
And who are the evil ones that are as useless as a placenta after birth? Who are the people that must be removed from this planet? What kind of people does God think would corrupt the future peace and prosperity planned for all nations?
Toward the end of the Apocalypse, God will selectively weed out any remaining evil ones in order to separate the clean from the unclean. This is my discourse. Although I can practically guarantee that you will not find this truth in a bookstore, nevertheless it is not my invention. These truths have been revealed by God to many servants who recorded his messages about the future throughout the Bible. How we humans respond to them will determine what will happen to you - and to me - if we are still found among the living when that time arrives.
The last stage of the Apocalypse will be carried out by four death angels prepared for this specific moment in prophetic time. Originally, there were five death angels. [Remember my hand-finger rule - the thumb and four fingers symbolizing the 1+4=5, five representing the other side principle.]
These five angels are the most powerful beings ever created in the universe, and they have fallen under Satan’s power. Because they are so dangerous, they have been kept chained in the underworld for thousands of years throughout the Zayin Age (4004 BC - AD 2015).
Speaking of angels, there are twelve (12) special angels of importance mentioned in prophecy. They follow the ever reoccurring principle of the 7-5 Hebrew ratio. There are seven good angels mentioned in Revelation 15 who announce the seven plagues. They stand before the throne of the universe and are God’s obedient servants. Throughout Revelation their appearances are always awesome, powerful, majestic and radiating the Creator’s authority. The other five angels that make up the twelve are the death angels who will execute God’s sentence of death upon the evil people of the earth. Let’s focus on these five angels of divine judgment.
I found ten ancient names of angels listed in some Lexicons and other reference books. The names were classically composed of a verb or noun plus the name of God. In the Old Testament two of the names for God are Elohim and El Shaddai. The first three angels are the most important in the hierarchy of the Heh dimension: Michael, Gabriel and Helel or Azazel. The latter is Satan, of course. Helel means Lord of Hel, where we get the word “Hell.” The other seven angels are: Uriel, Raphael, Roniel, Phanuel, Raziel, Seraguael und Haniel. There is another one “the Angel of Yahweh (LORD)” who many scholars identify as being Jesus Christ before his incarnation.
The first death angel was sent to do his dreadful job on earth during the days of ancient Egypt. About 1500 BC hundreds of thousands of foreigners called Israelites lived in the Egyptian province of Goshen. These slaves of Pharaoh labored under difficult conditions to build his big treasure cities. When Moses showed up and demanded their freedom from the most powerful king of his time, Pharaoh refused. So God smote Egypt with ten terrible plagues until Pharaoh finally let God’s people go home to the land God had promised their forefathers.
The Bible records that the tenth and last plague was a slaughter of all of Egypt’s “firstborn” - both people and domestic animals alike. The agent of this plague was the death angel – the first death angel. The victims included the Pharaoh’s firstborn and heir. As commanded by God, this death angel went from house to house selectively. He mercilessly killed the thousands of firstborn sons and animals throughout Egypt, but he was not permitted to touch any human or animal that came under the protection of God’s Passover sacrifice.
The death angel was commanded to “pass over” any house that had the blood of a sacrificed sheep or goat splashed around its door (Daleth) as a sign of those obedient to God’s commands in faith. The occupants within were left untouched, mercifully escaping a Holy God’s terrible judgment. This Passover event was a defining moment in Israel’s history. From it we can gain valuable insights into what will take place during the Apocalypse.
Since angels are invisible to the spectrum of our eyesight, they have a tremendous advantage over people. Because they are invisible, angels can get us first before we even know what hit us. This would make them a very dangerous adversary - especially since we have not invented an instrument capable of showing us the spectrum of angelic manifestation.
Furthermore, they are very powerful. The Bible records where one angel destroyed Assyrian conqueror Sennacherib’s army of 185,000 well-trained and equipped soldiers as they besieged Jerusalem. It didn’t take long – just a few hours at most in the night, and no one survived but the king who fled in humility. (2 Kings 19:35-36)
Now let’s find out what happens when those four, dangerous angels of death are let loose upon the earth during the Second Woe.
At the very end of the Zayin time on earth (Note: Technically, the tables and the World Cuckoo Clock show the Apocalypse as its own, short hour of the Cheth age, but the earth is still under Satan’s dominion, which typifies Zayin.) God in heaven will again command, “Release the four death angels prepared and incarcerated from the beginning of time.” The reason why there will be four death angels is because the whole world is a much larger area than Egypt. They will start their appointed job in Iran, Iraq and all the countries located along the river Euphrates. Satan’s enclave formally known as Babylon will be first:
Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar before God, saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” So the four angels were released, who had been held ready for the hour, the day, the month, and the year, to kill a third of humankind. (Revelation 9:14-15 NRSV)
The four death angels are released at the beginning of the Second Woe, which is the sixth trumpet and sixth bowl/vial. The three woes all take place in both Daleth and Heh dimensions simultaneously. The four death angels represent the Heh dimensional aspect of this woe and the Daleth aspect is concurrently experienced in the attack of the massive 200,000,000 man army gathered for battle at Armageddon.
These four angels of death will visit every country around the world, and I mean every country - with no exceptions. They will kill about 1½ billion people. This prophecy was written two thousand years ago, and when God reveals something as severe as this order from heaven to the sixth angel with the sixth trumpet of the Apocalypse, it will absolutely happen.
But even with this slaughter, not everyone dies. As in the events of ancient Egypt connected with a death angel related above, this judgment is just one step in a selective process. We must understand that soon after these angels are loosed, God’s kingdom will show up on earth. It is absolutely mandatory that those who are evil be removed from the earth so that they will not be around to sabotage God’s new civilization.
The death angels will kill those refusing to repent: those who could but will not submit to God’s reign on earth. This same selective purging of evil will have already taken place in the heavenly Apocalypse during the 8th and 9th Periods. All evil beings and angels will have been removed from the Heaven by then. They will have been cast out of Heaven to “fall” upon to earth with Satan. Eventually, Satan and the other “fallen angels” will either be dumped into the “ Lake of Fire” or into the underworld - “Hades” in order to eliminate their influence on earth, too.
For ages the spiritual environment of heaven has suffered the wretched pollution from when Satan and the demons would show up from time to time to spoil God’s court. (Job 1:6) With Michael’s victorious expulsion of Satan and the demons from the Heh dimension of Heaven, the realm of God’s righteousness is purified. Although Satan is cast to the earthly dimension during the Mini-Apocalypse, divine purification is destined to follow him, and the earth will be liberated from the kingdom of spiritual darkness.
The placenta, which represents the evil present among humanity all along, will be discarded from the universe. God’s new baby or civilization to be born will include the earth, too. It is so simple that I cannot explain it any better. It may be very difficult for you to accept the truth because you have lived a lifetime full of Satan’s lies. His lies are found throughout our higher institutions of learning as well as pervading the public information and entertainment media.
Humanity has been purposefully conditioned by the Enemy not to see the obvious. For example, my Islamic brethren should please notice that the Creator of the universe will forever settle the Palestinian conflict in the Middle East this last event so that all of his children can dwell together in peace.
The children of Israel wandered 40 years in the Sinai wilderness. None of the original people over twenty years of age, except two, entered the Promised Land because the Israelites had rebelled against God in their faithlessness. The offending generation that had grown up in Egypt did not live to see what God promised them in his deliverance: only their children did. When the death angels once again go through the land, there will be many orphans left around the world because their parents will not survive these angelic dispensers of God’s wrath, but many children will – just like the children of the Exodus did.
When the death angels go through the land during the Apocalypse, there will be a sudden and dramatic increase in the number of orphans around the world. Their parents will not have survived those four angelic dispensers of God’s wrath, but many children will – just like the children of the Exodus. Children from each human tribe will survive; however, by God’s purpose, there must be accountability – even for children. Not all children will escape the wrath of God. Evil will not be tolerated in the future world order to come. If a child is brainwashed with hatred against another social group by his or her parent(s), they will die by the death angels regardless of age.
If a child’s character innately expresses a nature of incorrigible evil – regardless of its exact expression, he or she will not inherit God’s Kingdom. Young age will not automatically exempt one from judgment as it did during Israel’s wanderings in the Sinai wilderness. This is a sobering thought to consider if you have children. I think about this when I see pictures of those youth who have become specialized killers with bombs strapped around their body – sometimes even when very young.
Here are my thoughts about this process of separating young and old according to measured accountability. You figure out for yourself which group you belong to. Will you survive the Great Apocalypse to live on into God’s restored kingdom on earth?
When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, and he will put the sheep at his right hand and the goats at the left.
Then the king will say to those at his right hand, "Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me."
Then the righteous will answer him, "Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?" And the king will answer them, "Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family [Christians, Jewish believers and their friends - sheep], you did it to me."
Then he will say to those at his left hand, "You that are accursed [goats], depart from me into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not give me clothing, sick and in prison and you did not visit me."
Then they also will answer, "Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you?" Then he will answer them, "Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these [sheep], you did not do it to me. And these [goats] will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous [sheep] into eternal life." (Matthew 25:31-46 NRSV) [Brackets added for clarity throughout.]
It is easy even for a child to discriminate between sheep and goats. They are two different animals, and a young child has no problem pointing out which is which. By some process, God will separate the evil persons from those who will survive the Apocalypse in a manner easily recognized by the four death angels so that they will “pass over” the “sheep.” They will only execute those who would not happily participate fully in the new world order under Christ.
Like with the Flood in Noah’s day, the earth will be cleansed from its corruption of evil men. I have highlighted the characteristics of those who will be executed by the death angels. Even as you read this book, you do not know when you will die. As long as you are alive, you still have the opportunity to change and become one of the sheep people.
My first book introduced you to the ten commandments of the future government on earth. The second commandment ends with:
…for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing children for the iniquity of parents, to the third and the fourth generation of those who reject me [goat], but showing steadfast love to the thousandth generation of those who love me and keep my commandments [sheep]. (Exodus 20:5-6 NRSV)
Jesus said: “Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not one letter, not one stroke of a letter, will pass from the law until all is accomplished. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments [goat], and teaches others to do the same, will be called least in the kingdom of heaven [goat]; but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great [sheep] in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:17-19 NRSV, [brackets added])
Whoever adds unscriptural dogmas, church ordinances and cultural biased religious false teachings the Word of God will vanish forever. This is a heavy warning for Christians, Catholics and other religious teachers who present a mixed bag of truth and false interpretations not based on the Bible.
“You have heard that it was said to those of ancient times, ‘You shall not murder’; and ‘whoever murders [goat] shall be liable to judgment.’ But I say to you that if you are angry [goat] with a brother or sister, you will be liable to judgment; and if you insult [goat] a brother or sister, you will be liable to the council; and if you say, ‘You fool [goat],’ you will be liable to the hell of fire [goat]. (Matthew 5:21-22 NRSV, [brackets added])
You shall not steal [goat]; you shall not deal falsely [goat]; and you shall not lie [goat] to one another. And you shall not swear falsely [goat] by my name, profaning [goat] the name of your God: I am the Lord.
You shall not defraud [goat] your neighbor; you shall not steal [goat]; and you shall not keep for yourself the wages of a laborer until morning [goat]. You shall not revile the deaf or put a stumbling block before the blind [all goats]; you shall fear your God [sheep]: I am the LORD.
You shall not render an unjust judgment; you shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great: with justice you shall judge your neighbor. You shall not go around as a slanderer [goat] among your people, and you shall not profit by the blood of your neighbor [all goats]: I am the LORD.
You shall not hate in your heart anyone of your kin [goat]; you shall reprove your neighbor, or you will incur guilt yourself. You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against any of your people [all goats] …but you shall love your neighbor as yourself [sheep]: I am the Lord. (Leviticus 19:11-18 [brackets added])
These Bible verses present some major offences that will bring judgment in the last days for those guilty of the following:
- Wrongful anger and insult
- Dealing falsely
- Swearing falsely
- Unjust judgment
- Profit by blood
During the last 13 days of God’s Wrath, the four death angels will execute all who live by the 13 offences listed above. It is the final purging of the earth’s peoples of unregenerate sin and rebellion against a holy God. Such behavior will not be tolerated in the New Civilization – not even at its beginning. God plans a fresh start for His reign over the earth. This pervasive change in spirit worldwide will be like the dramatic cleansing we experience with spring’s new leaves and flowers after a long, cold and snowy winter.
Are you sheep or goat? It’s your choice. Perhaps your background is Islamic. It is your choice whether to persecute a family member, neighbor or a stranger who converts to Christianity or not. Why take the risk of incurring God’s wrath by harming another because you disagree with him or are unsure? Being reconciled (sheep) with God through Jesus Christ is the best insurance policy to avoid the death angel, but in the very least one can act decently towards others in mercy and goodness. The goat list is extensive, and we can easily wonder who will survive the Apocalypse?
When we realize that we cannot live up to that life-threatening standard and so avoid being killed by one of those four death angels, the only solution that I know of is to come to the cross of Jesus Christ. Each of us must ask him to take away all our sins to begin to work his perfection within us. At that moment our sins are forgiven, and we are saved from the judgment of death - the eternal separation from God. From then on the death angel ceases to have any power over us because we have become citizens, redeemed to a heavenly kingdom and named among the “first born” royal children of God. (Colossians 1:13-14)
Here is my calculation:
At the beginning of the Apocalypse we notice that four riders on horseback come. From them Revelation states that one fourth (25%) of today’s population of about 6 billion people will perish, will perish from one of those riders. That leaves perhaps 3-4 billion people. (Revelation 6:7-8) The cumulative effect of over seven years of Antichrist’s wars and persecutions, together with the disruptive effects from them, would reduce the population still further to perhaps 2-2.5 billion left over. At the end of the Apocalypse one third (33%) will die at the hands of the four death angels leaving about 1.6 billion people. (Revelation 9:13)
Jerusalem will be surrounded by armies at the end of the Apocalypse. Armies of 200,000,000 troops will come from the north destroying one third of the world’s population on their way to Jerusalem. In the end they also will be totally destroyed, but still there are men left who will not repent (Ezekiel 38:17-23; Revelation 9:20-21) The last earthquake will raze thousands of cities to rubble. It is accompanied by a deadly storm of 100 pound hailstones associated with the Seven Thunders. (Revelation 10:3-4, 16:21) We are now down to a population of about 700 million.
To sum it up, from one tenth (10%) up to two tenths (20%) of the world’s population might survive. Zechariah 13:8-9 indicates that one-third of the Jewish people in Israel will survive. If we compare this future destruction to God’s purification of the earth with Noah’s Flood, it would seem that this number is still too high, so perhaps the actual number of survivors will be much smaller.
My assurance of eternal life rests in Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection to eternal glory. I do not worry about whether I die in bed or at the hands of some hateful fanatic. Nor do I worry about starving to death, which I came very close to doing in 1946. For me it is just going through that Daleth door into another room in order to wait for a wonderful future life experience where the human potential will flourish and mature into the full expression of God’s purposed liberty under love.
In Revelation John writes about a vast crowd assembled from all nations who sing accompanied by musical instruments. These fantastic concerts evidence that everybody will be full of joy and enthusiasm in the ages to come. Our lives will be full of pleasure eternally because we will be focused on the Lamb who was slain once for our sins. He that was crucified is coming back as a conquering King because of His love for the lost. God’s sacrifice can never be repaid – only accepted. It is only by His love that any can qualify for the other side. The last words of the Bible proclaim the end result of the four death angels’ work:
Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they will have the right to the tree of life and may enter the city by the gates.
Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and fornicators and murderers and idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. (Revelation 22:14 NRSV)
This was the last Tammuz 17 mystery revealed. As I watched a TV science presentation from a space station, the earth beneath it was shown as a beautiful ball covered with clouds. What impressed me was that there were a dozen places around the globe where I could see simultaneous flashings of lightning. The lightning bolts seemed to go from cloud to cloud, and if you were not an earthling to know what it was that you were watching, then you might interpret those flashes as something else.
Hypothetical aliens from space might think that there were explosions going on all the time. However, if they should drive a spaceship into our atmosphere, they would get a totally different picture of those same events once they felt the winds, measured the lightning bolts, and otherwise observed the storm clouds more closely.
Between the sixth and the seventh trumpets in Revelation, a story is inserted that I had never read about in my whole life. I have never even heard anyone try to explain its significance to me.
And I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven, wrapped in a cloud, with a rainbow over his head; his face was like the sun, and his legs like pillars of fire. He held a little scroll open in his hand. Setting his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land, he gave a great shout, like a lion roaring.
And when he shouted, the seven thunders sounded. And when the seven thunders had sounded, I was about to write, but I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Seal up what the seven thunders have said, and do not write it down.”
Then the angel whom I saw standing on the sea and the land raised his right hand to heaven and swore by him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and what is in it, the earth and what is in it, and the sea and what is in it:
“There will be no more delay, but in the days when the seventh angel is to blow his trumpet, the mystery of God will be fulfilled, as he announced to his servants the prophets.”
Then the voice that I had heard from heaven spoke to me again, saying, “Go, take the scroll that is open in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land.” So I went to the angel and told him to give me the little scroll; and he said to me, “Take it, and eat; it will be bitter to your stomach, but sweet as honey in your mouth.” So I took the little scroll from the hand of the angel and ate it; it was sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it, my stomach was made bitter.
Then they said to me, “You must prophesy again about many peoples and nations and languages and kings.” (Revelation 10:1-11 NRSV)
This Bible verse was at first very puzzling because John was forbidden to write down what he saw. However, there is enough information given to make some sense of where these thunders fit in the context of these last thirteen days of the Apocalypse. This segment tells of a very mighty angel - of the highest order with a rainbow over His head. His legs are like pillars of fire with one foot resting on the earth and the other on the sea. The rainbow signifies that He is in charge of our world. It is the sign of God’s covenant with all of the survivors of the first purging of the earth’s evil – the great Flood of Noah’s generation. (Genesis 9:9-17)
Next, this great angel shouts out the message of the “Seven Thunders” contained on the scroll open in his hand. At that moment our faithful recorder in Heaven, John, was told to stop writing. He could not pass on to us what the Seven Thunders actually said.
I believe that these Seven Thunders announce the end of the Chet Age and introduce the seventh trumpet/seventh bowl, which is the third and last woe that will break the powers of darkness and prepare the way for the Teth New Age of the Kingdom of God. The coming of this new age will at last reveal to all flesh the Heh mystery of God’s spiritual dimension with the material dimension of Daleth. God will fulfill all of His promised blessings spoken of by God’s prophets and servants to Israel and the nations.
The story ends up with John eating the scroll and getting sick from swallowing it. The quote, "Take it, and eat; it will be bitter to your stomach, but sweet as honey in your mouth," echoes similar phrases describing Jeremiah and Ezekiel’s willingness to deliver God’s messages. (Jeremiah 15:16; Ezek 2:8; 3:1-3)
The “sweetness” means that the Spirit commands, draws and inspires the message. But Revelation records that John does not like the message or rejoice in the sore judgments that are coming. The prophecies are bitter in his stomach. The pain and sorrows inflicted on the millions of stubborn people who refuse to repent make him sick. Fortunately, the book of Revelation also contains wonderfully good prophecies of the coming Kingdom of Christ and the New Heavens and New Earth that follow the Apocalypse. Those who read it should remember to focus on those promises during the coming days of darkest trial and sorrow.
Checking out that mystery of the Seven Thunders from my clockmaker’s perspective, I noticed a big notch in the World Cuckoo Clock just before the cuckoo bird announces its presence. When I compared it with the Hebrew Alphabet Number System, I discovered some further insights.
One foot of the angel rested on the earth and the other on the sea. The reference to both feet means that the angel’s message concerns further testing. The Zayin Age of 6,000 years of human history on earth is represented by the foot resting on the earth. The earth’s contact with the foot connects it to that time period. In short our past civilization is the focal point where his left foot rests.

The angel’s right foot rests on the sea. The sea in the Hebrew Alphabet Number System is represented by the letter, Mem=40, an expanse of undefined water area. Mem is the Daleth (4) dimension with purpose (4x10=40). The angel announces that God’s biggest and most important mystery will be fulfilled soon after the thunders - at the sounding of the last and seventh trumpet.
People live in the Daleth dimension. The world of the Daleth (4) dimension has “four” corners. The Four Corners of Daleth are:
- Space: the physical material world of our earth
- Mankind’s spirit or soul: the Heh (the other side) aspects of humanity
- The time dimension: being mortal, humanity is subject to time
- Satan’s Dominion: many Bible verses refer to the four levels of our world: the two heavens, the earth, and under the earth (hell or Hades)
When white hot lightning zaps through the air, thunder is created, and the crashing sound of it moves through the air. Without air there is no sound of thunder so the key word is air. Thus, the appearance of the hundred pound hailstones is a natural accompaniment to the Seven Thunders.
The trumpets blow six times for six previous events that had already taken place by the time of the Seven Thunders. The Seventh Trumpet announces Seventh Vial poured into the air with flashes of lightning and peals of thunder. The correlation with the Seven Thunders is obvious. My modern calendar date range for the Third Woe is 4 September to 17 September 2015.
I believe that Revelation’s Seven Thunders announce a very short, third Apocalypse for these newly fallen angels. The thunders are placed at the end of the Apocalypse for the sake of human survival because they clear all of the evil angels out of the space around the earth. It is the end for the angels fallen from Heaven with Satan. The demonic armies are no more. The terrors of the Apocalypse are almost over.
The Bible plainly states that Satan stands alone when he is chained and placed in the sealed abyss after the end of the earth’s Apocalypse. Like Pharaoh alone on the shore of the Red Sea looking out over his 600 destroyed chariots, Satan will see both his angelic and human armies destroyed. (Exodus 14:28) The air will be cleansed, and the prince of the power of the air will be no longer in power. (Ephesians 2:2)
At once I was in the spirit and there in heaven stood a throne, with one seated on the throne! And the one seated there looks like jasper and carnelian, and around the throne is a rainbow that looks like an emerald.
Around the throne are twenty-four thrones, and seated on the thrones are twenty-four elders, dressed in white robes, with golden crowns on their heads.
Coming from the throne are flashes of lightning, and rumblings and peals of thunder, and in front of the throne burn seven flaming torches, which are the seven spirits of God; and in front of the throne there is something like a sea of glass, like crystal. (Revelation 4:2-6 NRSV)
God’s throne room is the center of heaven. Revelation describes it in considerable detail. Here I will focus on the rainbow and its meaning.
I am a scientist mostly self-taught by what I have read in science magazines rather than from formal university classes. Not long ago I read something in one of those magazines that is not taught in any university but could just as easily come right out of the Bible. Many scientists grapple to understand our material world of the Daleth dimension. When we look out into the cosmos with the aid of telescopes, we can see billions of galaxies. From spectrographic analysis of visual and radio astronomical readings, we know that these distant galaxies are all composed of the same common atomic elements that we have them on earth.
The rainbow over the head of the mighty angel of Revelation 10 mentioned above could be reasonably identified with a spectrograph of our material world. In the light range of the rainbow we can find the combined frequencies, or light signatures, of all of the substances of creation. In both Bible verses quoted here we find the rainbow placed above the head of God in one case and above the head of this most important angel of the Seven Thunders.
Thus, the rainbow symbolizes the mysterious totality of substance that fills the entire, multidimensional cosmos. It includes the substance that belongs to the Heh dimension of the heavenlies as well as the Daleth dimension’s measurable physical universe of matter, energy and time. Heaven’s metaphysical dimension possesses structure just as the scientifically observable material universe has structure and follows predictable laws and relationships.
But the question comes up, “Does the Heh dimension of heaven share the same atomic composition as the material Daleth world of our earth and time?” I believe that the answer is, “Yes!” Let me explain.
Every material element like Hydrogen, Deuterium, and Tritium - all the way to Uranium, can be expressed in frequencies of light waves. It is a scientific paradox that I do not quite understand. Albert Einstein’s famous equation of E=MC2 plays out as mass converts into pure energy. This is the basic principle used to build our horrible atomic fission or hydrogen fusion bombs. The destructive power of nuclear bombs is measured in thousands of tons (equivalency of the explosive TNT) and in millions of tons (megatons) in the case of the H-bomb.
If I accept Einstein’s equation and its demonstrated explosive truth that matter can be converted to energy, then I can reason that all matter could be totally (100%) converted into pure energy. Furthermore, the reverse could also be true: matter can be created out of pure energy. Thus, it stands to reason that God used and applied this principle in some unknown process to create the material universe by speaking. It is just the reverse of what Dr. Albert Einstein discovered, but this Unified Field Theory, as he termed it, is also what Einstein spent the last half of his life trying to define mathematically.
If we follow this line of reasoning, then it becomes possible to unify the seemingly opposing theoretical concepts of how the universe is structured. A prime example is the nature of light, which sometimes behaves as an energized particle and sometimes like a wave of energy. (The nature of light is by itself a paradox.) From one perspective the universe is composed of particles (atoms, neutrons, positrons, etc.) and yet energy forces move in waves. The common denominator is where everything is expressed or can be converted into energy. It is the same coin but possesses two sides. That is why we are confronted with the phenomenon of a paradox.
We may have another indication that this line of reasoning is valid by further examining the rainbow. When we split the light which comes from the sun through a prism, we see the rainbow colors. Within those colors are imbedded spectral lines. Each element possesses a unique pattern of spectral lines, so their presence can be ascertained by precise scientific instruments. If the light can be collected, it can be analyzed, whether it is in a lab or in a distant galaxy. The same elements found to make up our bodies are also found in the most distant galaxies of our universe.
But beyond the rainbow colors, physics tells us that below the blue side of the rainbow, we have a form of invisible light called ultraviolet light. Other invisible rays, infrared, are found on the other, red side of the spectrum. Thus, the whole energy spectrum ranges from low frequencies invisible to the human eye to high frequencies that are also invisible. Somewhere in the middle bandwidth of the visible light frequencies are imbedded the atomic structures of every known element.
Light energy can be, and has been, converted into other forms of energy such as heat as well as into many subatomic particles. To accomplish the latter, scientists use linear accelerators or cyclotrons that are designed to smash existing atoms and subatomic particles into one another to create new ones.
Modern technology intensively uses these various electromagnetic frequencies with different functions found to be more suitably executed in different ranges of frequency and intensity. At the higher end we have common acquaintance with x-rays, radio and TV waves. Even further up we can measure and use Alpha, Gamma, Beta and cosmic rays I do not know much about. Somewhere at the border of infinity lies the unapproachable light of God’s presence.
To summarize my thought pattern, when we analyze the spectrum of light from the sun through a prism, we discovered spectral lines in the visible rainbow color spectrum of every known element as organized in the Periodic Table of Elements. The earth was put in orbit around the sun on the fourth day, indicating the Daleth dimension as a purpose. These spectral lines from the sun represent most of the atomic elements existing in the universe and on earth. A matter of fact, sometimes scientist first found these elements in space before they were isolated on earth. Helium, for example, is a very light gas that was first discovered on the sun. Only later was it also found on earth and in our atmosphere.
Thus, the presence of the pure energy of Creation might be rationally represented by a symbol like the spectrum of visible light we refer to as the rainbow. As just described, we know that most of the electromagnetic power of light is not visible: it extends to frequencies shorter and longer being faster and slower than what humans can see. By the way, animals see different ranges of the rainbow than do humans. In fact some animals can see colors that humans cannot.
Getting back to Revelation and rainbows, I propose that the visible rainbow also represents the presence of the extended electromagnetic power that is not visible. In other words, the presence of the rainbow over God’s throne communicates that all power resides with and emanates from the presence of the Creator – not just the power we can sense physically. When a rainbow is pictured over the head of an angel, the Bible is saying that this designated messenger is being sent with God’s full power to execute His purposes of judgment or blessing on earth.
The rainbow over the head of the One who sits on Heaven’s throne also represents all of the building stones of God’s creation. The pure energy emanating from the center of the universe to form all different kinds of matter as needed comes from that one source. It is so simple to figure this one out. Converted energy comes in many forms, and we in the Daleth dimension can touch it, smell it, feel it, taste it, see it and call it matter or elements as statistically assembled in our Periodic Table of Elements.
Let’s focus for a little on who or what angels are. Historically, all our museums show paintings of angels with wings. Wings indicate that these angels fly so their domain must be the air - just as the Bible states. There are good looking angels, and there are ugly, evil looking ones.
On the surface they do not appear to be human although they do have some similarities with people. Angels, for example, are rational beings, and some are good while some are evil. Some serve God, and the others serve Satan. They belong to a higher level or spectrum of physical existence than mankind. Let me try to explain it scientifically.
To understand the physically perceived manifestations of angels, we should draw analogies from the discussion above on the rainbow and the electromagnetic spectrum. I believe that the wavelength for angels is higher than that for x-rays. X-rays are invisible to us, and we have not yet invented instruments to examine beyond that frequency region more thoroughly. Otherwise we would by now have physical proof of their existence.
Angels and their bodies are from a different order of the universe. They can travel faster than light because they come from a realm that is energized on a physically higher spectrum than what we can scientifically measure or see. It is represented in Scripture by the rainbow segment of the electromagnetic spectrum that we see in the Daleth dimension on earth. Angels can function at the lower end of their operational spectrum in order to interact with the material universe – the Daleth dimension on earth, which is why God sends them to administer his government on earth. Their realm or medium of operation on this planet includes the atmospheric air where the clouds are, which the Bible refers to as the natural or first heaven.
All angels must obey God without question. If they don’t, they are eliminated at once, with no second chances. This is the reason why angels cannot leave their first estate today to engage in sexual activity with human women as they did in the days before the Flood. If they try to do so today, they are immediately eliminated.
The good angels’ job is to administer blessings to humanity. They can help us during our lives in this world in this time – Daleth. This help sometimes comes in the form of obvious miracles, supernatural events that cannot be explained by science. More often, there are thousands of not so obvious miracles that take place every day in the human race. Hundreds of them are documented in the personal experiences of the recipients. My own life was spared a few times under seemingly miraculous circumstances.
As I discuss briefly in the early pages of my books, I grew up during the years of Nazis and World War II in what was called “ East Germany” not too long ago. At the close of the war I was a teenager trying to survive the chaos that took place then at the collapse of the Nazi government. The early years of Allied occupation were also very difficult. During my first border crossing after World War II had formally ended, I was discovered by a Russian officer who ordered his guard to shoot me, but nothing happened because his guard could not pull the trigger of his machine gun. This miracle left me alive to tell the story.
There are many stories about others that I have heard or read about. Perhaps, a cancer patient unexplainably regains his or her health when there had been no medical reason for hope. Dozens to hundreds can testify of cases such as this. As a result there are thousands of witnesses around the globe who have experienced similar events of healing, miraculous survivals of serious accidents or a series of coincidences that could not be mere chance. When a person is sick, angels can give or add something from their world and splice it into our physical biology to provide some kind of energy that is missing in our bodies so that the person recovers.
Simply being healed is not an absolute sign that a good angel is at work, however, because some evil angels use healing to deceive people into trusting them as gods or goddesses, and/or shamans or priests of divine powers worthy of worship. In other words, the demons sometimes use what seems to be a blessing, something desired by a person, in order to lead him or her astray to their ultimate destruction.
The fallen angels or demons like it even better if they can use one deceived person to win converts or students to their spiritual path. This is sometimes accomplished by empowering the “master” with “miracles” or other manifestation of paranormal powers. The key determinant is the attitude of the angel in question to the Bible. For example, is the healed person is encouraged to repent and follow a biblically defined faith in the God of Israel as revealed in Jesus the Messiah?
At this point I must give some warning to my readers - especially to our younger generation or anyone who has not been raised to read and heed what the Bible tells us. Specifically, I warn you not to dabble in the occult or to try to learn how to master spiritual powers from those who seem to possess them. Those who seek and use such powers end up being possessed by them.
So don’t play with Ouija Boards or go to fortune tellers, channels (mediums), Tarot Card readers or attend socially cool séances. Such events are either deceptive tricks or the seeming desirous promise of real spirit power. If the latter, then you will probably meet what seems to be a helpful, friendly spirit, but beware. It is most likely an evil demon that only seems friendly. They use a deceptively friendly and helpful persona that will tell you “secret” messages from departed loved ones or perform some metaphysical feat of prophecy or inexplicable movement of or change in a material object.
They do not mind being “tested” in this way and will do some fancy tricks in order to catch you in their net. They are lying, deceiving spirits whose only objective is to suck the life of your individuality out of you. They will do almost anything to prevent you from coming to know the truth that will set you free to become the glorious new creation in Christ, the true source of all power.
There are thousands demon possessed young persons institutionalized in our American prisons and hospitals. Ask the guards who work there. They will tell you the plain and terrible facts if you do not take my word for it. Once a demon has taken hold of you, it is very difficult to be separated or freed from it. Read the section titled, My Name is Legion in Chapter 3, which relates of Jesus’ encounter with a demon possessed person.
Only the fervent prayer of the saints calling on the liberating power of Jesus’ blood can untie demonic bondage. In America we put these dangerous killers behind bars, but in Islamic society they may run loose on the streets. Muslims do not know the Bible so they pay a heavy price, suffering the serious consequences of demonic oppression that comes from biblical ignorance. Look around their cities and countries. You will see poverty, destruction and death everywhere including the sorrows of thousands of tears shed by families ripped apart by the consequences of demonic deception.
TV documentaries from around the world show the result of the demonic dominion over humanity. Go back and read again about the First Woe - the fifth tru mpet’s and fifth bowl’s curses on a rebellious humanity. There will be tens of thousands of demons given permission to plague people for five months to punish those who deny God’s existence outright. They will torture everyone who has the mark of the Beast system on their forehead and/or on their right hand for the five months ending with the great earthquake on 4 September 2015.
This mark will identify all who oppose God. These people will become horribly crazy and commit an untold number of inhuman crimes. They will seek escape from their torture through suicide, but they will be prevented from doing so. Please listen to my warnings. For God’s sake and your own, listen. I know what I am talking about because one of my relatives is a guard in a prison hospital, who has at times told me what he has seen.
The evil angels belong to Satan’s dominion. They are Satan’s allies. Their job assignment is to administer “curses” and take away from the material world, so that people suffer from the sword, pain, tears sickness and other kinds of failures in the Daleth dimension as expressed in the Zayin Age of human history. These lying spirits influence people to do evil. History is witness enough to Satan’s successes. His thousands of evil agents have produced thousands of witnesses who testify of their spiritual powers and influence over mortals. Our only defense against them is prayer to the true God of Israel and the blood of redemption that flowed from Jesus’ side.
But the kinds and amount of evil that fallen angels are permitted to do are constrained by God’s greater purposes. There are always limits. The early chapters of the book of Job make this plain. All angels fall under God’s ultimate control: even the rebellious ones must conform to the plan of God, which I explained in the first book.
As the two Apocalypses are ending, the one in heaven and the other on earth, all of the evil angels will eventually be confined into the abyss or hell. My question is “what happened to the angels in the air-world? Revelation chapter ten connects with the Seven Thunders announcement, which John was not permitted to write down for us because these messages were meant for the evil angels living in the earth’s atmospheric realm and not for its human inhabitants.
When Jesus Christ comes in the air/clouds and the resurrected saints rise into the air/clouds to meet Him, one thing is sure: not one evil angel will be in that air to mess up this glorious encounter. As a matter of fact, Jesus will make sure that the earth’s air space will have been cleansed before He arrives to raise His faithful saints to eternal life at the First Resurrection.
Thus, I conclude that the Seven Thunders will eliminate all evil angels from this planet and purge the air domain from all evil. When God’s kingdom arrives, no evil demons will be around to twist, distort and otherwise mess up the New World Order established by Jesus Christ. The message and events surrounding the Seven Thunders could be called a third Apocalypse in the air. It is specifically addressed to the fallen angels habituating the earth’s atmosphere. From this point on, God will never again permit any supernatural being to interfere with humanity so as to cause rebellion and destroy the peace and harmony of decent community.
After 17 September 2015, Daniel records that a good angel will announce "blessings” to all. The world is now transferred from the Chet Age to the Teth Age = new life. There are no more evil angels in the air, and the evil armies have been purged from the earth. There are many Bible verses indicating the air as the province or medium of Satan’s powers as described in the letter to the Ephesians:
You were dead through the trespasses and sins in which you once lived, following the course of this world, following the ruler of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work among those who are disobedient. (Ephesians 2:2 NRSV)
For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:11-12 NRSV)
Many Christians harbor a number of false notions about the Wrath of God. Many of them come from popular beliefs that have sprung up around the Rapture Theory’s approach to the Last Days. Many Christians think that the only way to escape God’s Wrath is to not be around during the Apocalypse. Such a misconception requires a belief system that divides the First Resurrection into two separate stages or events. The first stage is a secret resurrection or “rapture” that takes place before the Apocalypse begins. This is the theological context featured in many Christian novels like the “Left Behind” series. According to this theory, the second phase will take place after the Apocalypse for those who repented during those seven years.
This popular idea of a “secret rapture of the saints” is very comforting because it promises believers certain escape from the painful trials and deadly events prophesied to take place during the Great Tribulation or Apocalypse. Christians counting on the rapture can pretty well ignore the world around them. They may be engaged in evangelism now, but they are not planning or preparing for the great harvest of souls to be won during the Apocalypse.
The believer’s life is not his or her own. Jesus has paid for it with his blood. (1Corinthians 6:20; 7:23) We certainly should not seek persecution or martyrdom, but if they come during our years of service, so be it. God is certainly able to preserve anyone he chooses through the Apocalypse just has he saved Daniel’s three friends from the fiery furnace. (Daniel 3:16-18)
My books present many Bible concepts in a way unlike anything that you have ever heard in your church or read. I hope you will have an open mind and study the Scriptures for yourself and not listen to those who have been educated in a closed system. Most of the elite are financially dependant on the religious, educational and corporate or government establishments for their jobs. Most will be muzzled by these material considerations. If they should dare voice an independently developed opinion, they stand a high probability of losing their chance for employment anywhere.
God’s plan is very logical. It is so unlike the many myths perpetrated by those professional theologians who massage words to fit a particular endtime scenario. Remember, if you cannot come up with at least two and five clear scriptural witnesses you haven’t got a case. For example, there are no Bible verses that clearly and specifically tell the church to plan on a pre-tribulation rapture in connection with a bodily change or resurrection event. Nevertheless, the concept that the church will be removed from the face of the earth either before the Apocalypse begins or before God’s Wrath has begun, is taught in many churches as dogma. We have a Readers’ Forum online at www.apocalypse2008-2015.com where you can post five plain verses proving the Rapture Theory, if you can find them. I will be watching…
The basic misunderstanding on this prophetic issue comes from not knowing what God’s Wrath is really about. Logically, the reason why the church can never be raptured before the Apocalypse is connected to the work of the four death angels. Remember, the death angels strike the earth’s remaining rebellious inhabitants – especially right after the great earthquake.
Just thirteen (13) days later - plus one, Satan’s dominion over the earth ends, and the days of blessing promised to Daniel will begin. As in ancient Egypt after the first Passover, the death angels will have passed over millions of children who will become orphans. Who is going to take care of those little children who are passed over?
My question to you, dear brother or sister in the Lord is, “If you are already in heaven, who is left behind to fulfill such an important task?” Of course, many who call themselves “Christian” will not survive the death angels’ mission - just as all the worldly saints of the first human civilization perished in the Great Flood. God’s standard has always been very high, and Jesus’ teaching put it a notch higher. This calls for serious examination of our motives as disciples of the One who is soon coming to judge the world.
I believe that the true Christians around the world who survive these final days of death will organize foster care and a food for survival program for the many children who are left alive to live into God’s new Teth Age on earth. Remember not everyone will be killed. I estimate that about a 500-800 million people will survive the Apocalypse – that is about one out of eight to ten.
Europe, as the hotbed of evil, will suffer the most because it was the home base for Antichrist. The rest of the world will have more survivors. I believe that America, with a large proportion of her population being Christians, will still possess a remnant of a social-local governmental infrastructure, which will try to support and help those less well off than themselves worldwide.
The Mini-Apocalypse ends on 17 September 2015. Seventeen means victory! Six days later on 23 September 2015, Jerusalem will celebrate the fast of Atonement as a festival of deliverance from sin’s consequences. The surviving Israelis will then be looking for the messianic King of Kings to come soon. “Watch therefore,” Jesus repeated over and over.
Like the 4th of July fireworks found in every American town, you will not be able to miss the cosmic fireworks of his coming. It will be the biggest and only cosmic fireworks on earth since the beginning of the Zayin Age 6,000 years ago.
My dear fellow Christians, “Wake up! Do not drift off to sleep so that you miss the greatest cosmic event in history. Look at the other rail! If you study the Jewish information about the timing of God’s plan, you will not be disappointed, even if my dates are a little off the mark.
But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief: for ye are all sons of light, and sons of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness; so then let us not sleep, as do the rest, but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night: and they that are drunken are drunken in the night.
But let us, since we are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation. For God appointed us not into wrath, but unto the obtaining of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore exhort one another, and build each other up, even as also ye do. (1Thessalonians 5:4-11 NASB)
10 Tishri 5776 - 23 September 2015
One last trumpet, one last call to repentance, and one last bowl of God's wrath remain:
The seventh angel poured his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple, from the throne, saying, "It is done!" And there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, and a violent earthquake, such as had not occurred since people were upon the earth, so violent was that earthquake. The great city [Jerusalem] was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. (Revelation 16:17-19 NRSV [brackets added for clarity])
The Lord utters his voice at the head of his army; how vast is his host! Numberless are those who obey his command. Truly the day of the Lord is great; terrible indeed—who can endure it?
Yet even now, says the Lord, return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning; rend your hearts and not your clothing. Return to the Lord, your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love, and relents from punishing.
Who knows whether he will not turn and relent and leave a blessing behind him, a grain offering and a drink offering for the Lord, your God? (Joel 2:11-14 NRSV)
For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark, and they knew nothing until the flood came and swept them all away, so too will be the coming of the Son of Man. Then two will be in the field; one will be taken and one will be left. Two women will be grinding meal together; one will be taken and one will be left. (Matthew 24:38-41 NRSV)
The world, including many Christians, will be unprepared for the Apocalypse. Jesus characterized this lack of readiness by stating that one group of people will be "left" while another is "taken." This does not refer to the rapture or a resurrection, contrary to what is taught in many churches today. I think it refers to those who will be left by the four death angels - just as during the days of Noah's life when the righteous people were saved while the evil perished.
Those dreadful angelic messengers of death will strike and kill the goat category of people around the world as previously discussed. Remember, before the coming of the Son of Man a selective process must take place. Some will live while others must die. This is the inescapable reality of how the Sheep are separated from Goats. (Matthew 25:31-46) Those who believe, watch by studying the biblical signs, and pray for His coming. They will not be surprised or disappointed when it happens:
Therefore, you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour. (Matthew 24:44 NRSV)
In the parable of the ten virgins, the bridegroom shows up just before dawn of a new day. From this and other scriptures we understand that the Kingdom of Heaven will appear on earth at the dawn of a new age as represented in this parable by the virgins’ admittance or loss of opportunity to gain entry to the marriage feast of the bridegroom. Those who were ready entered; those who had no oil, who were not prepared - were denied entry since they were unknown to the bridegroom:
At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps.
The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep. At midnight the cry rang out: "Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!" Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps.
The foolish ones said to the wise, "Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out."
"No," they replied, "There may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves."
But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.
Later the others also came. "Sir! Sir!" they said. "Open the door for us!" But he replied, "I tell you the truth, I don’t know you."
Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour. (Matthew 25:1-13)
When our situation becomes the most hopeless, Jesus encourages us to lift up our eyes and believe that he is coming. When we are in the midst of smoke and darkness and surrounded by the smell of constant death, it is particularly then that Jesus tells us not to be discouraged. Instead, he reminds us to observe the fig tree and discern its season. (Matthew 24:32) We are to observe the other signs God has provided in the Bible, too, such as watching for the birds of prey, counting the days and recognizing the signs of the season - just as a farmer knows when the fig tree’s fruit is about to ripen.
When the destructive events of the Apocalypse begin, many Christians will not recognize that Daniel’s seven years have started. As things get worse, however, some will begin to realize that they had been misled by their Christian teachers. They had expected to be raptured, caught up in the air and removed from this earth before the Apocalypse. When they aren’t, many will feel like they are unworthy, or they will feel like giving up. Consequently, their faith in "the coming of the Lord" will be severely tested during this troubled time. That is why Jesus repeatedly warned believers to "watch" and not to give up hope when disappointment looms on the horizon.
The Bible is quite clear that the Lord will come in splendor when the dust of judgment has settled down. It states that this wonderful event will occur after the Seventh Trumpet, which sounds at the end of the Apocalypse. In the parable of the wise and foolish virgins a shout calls out at midnight to the virgins to meet the bridegroom, but the delayed bridegroom appears unexpectedly afterwards.
This reference to hours after midnight represents the darkest hours of the Apocalypse. The delayed bridegroom appears unexpectedly at the time when the pitch black darkness starts to recede towards the dawning of a new day. Jesus Christ returns from heaven sending his angels ahead of him to wage war against the assembled armies of Antichrist, whose carcasses provide a feast for the migrating flocks of birds as covered in Chapter 4. (Revelation 19:11-21) With the nearing of his arrival with the heavenly hosts, dawn begins to break because Jesus has already broken the dark powers arrayed against Jerusalem before he appears with power and authority to fulfill God’s promised purpose at the long appointed time.
Two thousand years ago Jesus’ body was transformed to the Heh dimension when He rose from the dead in Jerusalem . This event took place either before or during the early morning hours of the first day of the week, “while it was still dark.” Thus, He appeared to Mary Magdalene at the dawn of a new day. (John 20:1-18) It is quite possible that the events mentioned concerning Jesus’ resurrection align well here with the parable of the bridegroom where the dawn of a new day parallels the dawn of the new age of the Messianic Kingdom after the darkness of Satan’s dominion has been broken.
The confusing impact of pre-tribulation theories is difficult to erase since they have been so popular in America over the last hundred years. For Jesus to appear briefly to rescue his saints at either before or during the early part of Satan’s ultimate hour of power over the nations or in the midst of the Apocalypse makes no sense at all - especially when Satan is still present in heaven. Christians should really study the Seventh Trumpet and the sequence of events it announces, or they might suffer much disappointment and loss of purpose. Discouraged disciples are never as useful to God as they should be.
After Satan’s expulsion from the Heh dimension of heaven the Kingdom of God will be established in that realm during the 8th and 9th Periods (22 January 2013 to 21 March 2014, which is also an equinox day). However, I believe the resurrection of the saints mentioned in Revelation 20:4 will occur about 2–3 Daleth dimension years later as indicated in the various Apocalypse tables. The exact day and hour is uncertain, which is why we are told to watch and wait.
The 7-Year Table of the Apocalypse shows three seasons (years) between the end of the Apocalypse and the beginning of the one thousand year reign of peace (21 December 2015 to 24 May 2018), but other signs indicate only days for its fulfillment after the Apocalypse has ended:
And when the seven thunders had sounded, I was about to write, but I heard a voice from heaven saying, "Seal up what the seven thunders have said, and do not write it down."
Then the angel whom I saw standing on the sea and the land raised his right hand to heaven and swore by him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and what is in it, the earth and what is in it, and the sea and what is in it:
"There will be no more delay, but in the days when the seventh angel is to blow his trumpet, the mystery of God will be fulfilled, as he announced to his servants the prophets." (Revelation 10:4-7 NRSV)
The book of Revelation mentions the Seven Thunders whose messages are not revealed. What they say may never be known on earth until the Apocalypse is history. What will happen in heaven is also impossible to date because “the other side” is the dimension of eternity with no earth-clocks for John to see. He would have told us if there were any.
I believe the mystery of the timing of the resurrection in respect to events in heaven is complete. To position the transformation of the saints in the Zayin Age is out of character and wrong. Placing the rapture at the beginning of the Apocalypse incorrectly mixes prophetic types or metaphors and applies them without the neutrally unbiased witnesses needed to substantiate their theories.
A wedding feast in heaven with Satan still there is impossible: he would crash the party. The mystery of the wedding feast will only be revealed after the seventh trumpet sounds, and that is a fact clearly stated in scripture. The seven trumpets are not blown out of sequence: there can be no Seventh Trumpet resurrection before trumpets one through six have also sounded.
In addition, the mechanism of the resurrection has not been revealed to us in detailed blueprints. For example, there is no genetic information about how human bodies are transformed, how it all happens and what will be different. Hence, we simply need to wait and see. God did not want to confuse us with something so complex and impossible for mortals to comprehend.
Only the apostle Paul tried to describe the resurrection. Uniquely among the apostles, Paul was a tremendously inspired and educated scholar. Like the twelve, he conferred face-to-face with Jesus over a period of three years in Arabia. His insights on the resurrection must have been further developed from his visit to the “third” heaven. Paul writes about many aspects of the spiritual body that believers will receive in 1Corinthians 15:35-58, but of those who even read his discourse, many still do not understand it.
In 1Thessalonians 4:13-5:11 Paul writes about the timing of Christ’s coming and the resurrection of the saints. From these verses and others, the various Christian schools have developed competing concepts about the resurrection – almost all without the benefit of proper chronological and event contexts as I have provided in these pages.
All I have asked of my readers is that they study and decide for themselves. It is the actual fulfillment that is the true test of truth in these matters. God will do what he will do, when he will do it - regardless of whatever you or I might believe or teach.
10th Tevet 5776 / 22 December 2015
We have come to the last portion of this book. Let us for a moment imagine that we are a parent of a preteen girl. We come home from work expecting our teen-age girl to be home. When we open the front door, we notice a piece of her clothing lying on the floor. As we pick it up, there is more, which looks like a trail leading upstairs. As we dutifully pick up her clothing, we wonder, “What is this all about?”
Marked by her dropped pieces of clothing, our daughter’s trail leads us up to her room. Thoughts arise from nowhere as we instinctively try to prepare for something unexpected, perhaps dreadful. Now we face the door to her room. Is she home? What will we find behind the door? Will it be what we might expect? And why were all those markers left behind for us to find?
My book is full of the markers that I found in the Bible about the last days of God’s plan for humanity. It was quite a job to follow one piece of the path and then another in order to pick up verses here and there as I looked for confirming patterns.
In reading this far you have followed the trail with me. Now, together we stand at this juncture in front of the door, which has the sign 10th of Tevet. The tenth is represented by Jod - a “higher level” or a “resting hand” in the Hebrew Alphabet Number System. The World Cuckoo Clock diagram shows that number (10) at the top of the dial, at 12 o’clock position.
The tables predict that the end of the Apocalypse will be 21 December 2015, which also coincides with a cosmic solstice day. This day has the longest night in the year in the northern hemisphere. Three days later makes December 24th when the daylight has already begun to grow longer in the hopeful anticipation of spring’s rebirth.
Unlike the events of the Apocalypse, there are no specific gears or cycles to relate the return of Jesus to the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem to a specific date. I have calculated how the Great Apocalypse is cut short as well as its endpoint, but beyond that we must wait. I believe that Jesus will return soon after the end of the Apocalypse because of what is written in Revelation 19 and other references, but I can only guess on a possible date for that blessed event. Here it is.
December 24 is called Christmas Eve because it is the start of Christmas, the traditional western date for the birthday of our Lord Jesus Christ. His resurrection was like a second birthday after being dead for three days in the tomb. Will the 24th of December, which follows the end of the Apocalypse by three days, mark a resurrection birthday celebration for his body of believers?
As we stand in front of this calendar door, we have left behind all the previous markers. Can we expect something very big when we open that door? Will we be invited to celebrate his second birthday? Has the time finally arrived to satisfy our longing for redemption from our body of pain, to be resurrected in glory? Could it be possible that the resurrection of the saints will happen on this day?
To satisfy the skeptic regarding the date of the Lord’s return, I admit that there is some faint hope for those who would argue that the Lord perhaps could return in the year 2016 or 2017 on the 24th of December. Perhaps their arguments will prove to be correct by the unfolding of events, but I am convinced that the 24th of December 2015 will be the most special day of my life because I will see him in whom I have believed.
Don’t stumble over this brief speculation of mine as to the day of Jesus’ Second Coming. The dates of the Apocalypse are very different issues. I pity those who insist on interpreting the Bible’s statement, “no one knows the time” as reason enough not to read my books. Don’t build up your defensive walls of bias so tall that you quit without a little struggle to understand what is presented in these pages! Whether you agree with my conclusions or not, do at least give them a careful reading.
I have documented many “coincidences” in my books. Together they prove that the dates arrived at for the major biblical events of the Apocalypse are precise. They are not accidents of chance because they align perfectly over and over again throughout the entire seven years.
Let’s review my numbers and calculations one more time. I want to use a graphic concept to illustrate the patterns of confirming prophetic alignment. The 9th of Av (3rd month of the 12th Period, 25 July 2015) is like a star that projects rays of light in three (Gimel) different directions. The first is when we go backward 64 days to the beginning of the twelfth seven-month-long period on 22 May 2015. (The number 64 is an important gear interval.)
The second ray points forward 40 days to September 4th, which is the start of the Third Woe great earthquake that ends the First and Second Woes. This date is also correlated with the migrating birds of prey flying over the dead bodies of the Russian and Islamic armies. Again, note that these periods overlay or align with cosmic cycles that I did not invent, nor can I manipulate them. They also overlay with Noah’s Flood, when it rained 40 Hebrew days and nights. Then it ended in a Tammuz position, and so it will in our time, too. The world political power structure of Satan’s domain will end with finality.
The third ray points forward 150 prophetic days (152 solar) to 24 December 2015, the eve of the birthday of Jesus Christ. We could express the number 150 as 40+80+30 = 150. Starting at 9 Av (25 July 2015 – the destruction of the Third Temple), we add 40 prophetic days to come to the end of the earthquake on 4 September. When we add another 80 days, we arrive at November 24th. Thirty more days brings us to December 24th as the last day of this cycle.
Why do I use these intervals? Referring back to the Hebrew Alphabet Number System, forty (40) means Mem = trials, testing, pain in this world with purpose. Eighty (80) means Peh = mouth or talk, and thirty (30) means Lamech = dedication. The “talk” time is used to clean the land of Israel from all dead bones to be buried in a designated valley as previously described.
I also believe these 80 days following the earthquake will be a period of cleansing heavenly power that pours into our earthly dimension from the other side. First, during the Third Woe of the Seven Thunders the demons and fallen angels that have filled the atmosphere and roamed visibly on the earth in the Daleth dimension since the First Woe will be removed from earth and thrown into the abyss or the lake of fire. God will not permit any demonic possession in his future kingdom! This will be paralleled by the birds cleaning up the dead bodies from Armageddon. These prophesied clean-ups will followed by human efforts to put lives back into order. By the end of the eighty plus thirty days, the earth will be purified from evil and made ready for the Great Day of the Lord’s coming.
I want to emphasize it again: 17 September 2015 is the most important day in the eternal history of the earth, the universe and Heaven. This end date of Daniel’s 1,335 day prophecy will be celebrated for a thousand years in the future because it marks the end of Satan’s dominion.
The demonic fallen angels no longer have a purpose to serve in God’s Plan for redeeming humanity. By then they will have been removed from both heaven, above the earth, on earth and under the earth. Since they serve no further purpose to God, they will cease to exist or live. He will eliminate them by casting them into the black hole of the abyss to the lake of fire. The future Kingdom of God will no longer be plagued by any demonic activity. Never again will anyone see crazy people demonically driven to murder human beings – whether it is a serial killer or the brutally murderous conquest by frenzied Christian, Islamic or other kinds of armies that slaughtered innocents in the name of God.
The number 150 can also be expressed as 3x50, which connotes a combination of Gimel (3) - divine completeness or approval and Nun (50), which represents the Promised Land or Israel’s return and restoration to her land. (The number 50 is also a gear, as in the jubilee.) Again, from the destruction of the Third Temple on 9 Av, count 3 gears of 50 days to arrive at 24 December.
God’s wrath is kindled when enemies touch the center (apple, pupil) of God’s eye – Israel. That’s when the sparks really get to flying. As I said before, the Temple is one of God’s primary markers that ends the Zayin Age. The Hebrew Alphabet Number System provides the second witness by spelling out “victory” on 17 September 2015 at the end of the Mini-Apocalypse.
At this point, there are a number of references that indicate that the end of the Great Apocalypse and Jesus’ return will both occur soon after 24 December 2015. I cannot think that the wrath of God would last another year or more.
Three days occur between 21 December and the 24th. The number three is represented by Gimel - divine perfection. The Temple was the main-stake (Tammuz) to develop the history table of mankind, and I would consider it the very center of prophecy. All prophecies point to the Temple in Jerusalem, completing the picture.
I did not invent this concept, and it took me two years of writing to express it. When I started out, none of this was known to me, and it only came to me in bits and pieces. When I began, I did not realize that an understanding of basic cuckoo clock technology would end up with me writing a book about the whole plan of God for the ages.
Overlaying the position of 24 December with the 7,000-Year Table of Human History and the 7-Year Table of the Apocalypse indicates that the Lord’s Day of vengeance does not exactly coincide with the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus for the Church.
The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said: "The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign for ever and ever."
And the twenty-four elders, who were seated on their thrones before God, fell on their faces and worshiped God, saying: "We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, the One who is and who was, because you have taken your great power and have begun to reign. The nations were angry; and your wrath has come. The time has come for judging the dead, and for rewarding your servants the prophets and your saints and those who reverence your name, both small and great—and for destroying those who destroy the earth."
Then God's temple in heaven was opened, and within his temple was seen the ark of his covenant. And there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake and a great hailstorm. (Revelation 11:15-19)
Here again is a classic example of interpreting prophetic writing with the Hebrew Alphabet Number System as the key to getting the order right. The most important event of Jesus being granted dominion over the earth comes first in heaven. After that event in heaven, come the events that unfold on the earth.
But in the time dimension of Daleth, the actual order of the events as they are perceived and experienced is reversed. First will come the earthquake, hail and Seven Thunders followed by the resurrection and rewarding of the dead and living saints in order to determine who will reign under Christ and in what capacity during the millennial Teth age of Jesus’ rule on earth. Finally, humanity will hear the proclamation that the king and his kingdom are coming and see the actual arrival of their new king with his heavenly hosts.
Some verses indicate that Jesus will appear immediately after the Apocalypse - after the shaking of the earth. If the resurrection of the saints takes place at Christmas, God would be surprising us with unspeakable joy in celebration of his birthday. What a wonderful Christmas gift for the believers!
There’s something else very interesting about a Christmas resurrection. 24 December follows the end of the Apocalypse by three days. By analogy these three days are like the three days Jesus lay in the tomb before his own resurrection. Just as a believer is born again by faith in the Son, receiving the Holy Spirit, so we shall be reborn from death at his coming even as Jesus is the firstborn from the grave. This alignment would be a perfect match with the Hebrew Alphabet Number System. (1Corinthians 15:20; Colossians 1:18)
When we become reborn believers, we have two birthdays, one in the seven-based dimension and one in the five-based dimension. Being fully man, Jesus Christ has two birthdays too. However, Jesus’ two birthdays are on the same day, December 24th at evening because they both belong to the five-based dimension.
Two times the five-based dimension logically indicates the same day - just as two times our seven-based dimension’s week (7 days) always brings us to the same day of the week. While scholars sometimes deny 25 December as the date of his first birth, the Hebrew Alphabet Number System supports the traditional date, which is proper.
After considering these many overlays or alignments of calendar clock gears, I have come to believe that 24 December 2015 at evening into the new day is the most likely date for the Lord to come to this world again. Aligning the Hebrew Alphabet Number System with the Twelve Jewish Festivals and Fasts was quite a discovery for me since I am not Jewish and was not educated about the other rail of the railroad.
The Rosetta Stone had previously opened up Daniel’s prophecy and revealed a binary code, the 7-5 ratio, which established the timetables that compose the World Cuckoo Clock dial for Satan and humankind. The Russian Egg illustration describes how truth is revealed in patterns of incremental alignment because there is so much to learn.
For those who have never read the Bible before, all of this material will be difficult to understand without the Holy Spirit as a tutor to bring clarity to the text. Whether you are a believer or not, ask God in simple prayer to help you to understand his loving plan for humanity. Ask him to send you his Spirit to guide you into all truth. (John 16:13)
Unlike the other dates I have presented, I can only speculate on the timing of Jesus’ return to this earth since I do not have 5 Bible verses for witnesses. Jesus’ return may take place on 17 September 2015 at the height of God’s Wrath or later. Zechariah 14:4 indicates that by the time He descends to the Mount of Olives, the decisions will have already been made as to which mortals will inherit the Kingdom of God.
On the other hand, Jesus’ arrival could occur after enough time has past for some basic clean up to take place first - like the removal of human bones and unexploded war material. It makes sense that some preparation might need to be made for the King of Kings’ arrival. Jesus will saddle His white horse when the Father has given the signal to ride. Sorry, I cannot tell the hour, because the Heh-Dimension does not have clocks. Through the overlay of HANS, the World Cuckoo Clock system of gears only reveals the dates of the Apocalypse in our material Daleth dimension of time and place.
Some Christians will be upset when they discover the many holes in their prophetic theology, but all of us must now come to terms when our thoughts and ideas conflict with the plain language of the Bible. Of course, holding to an opinion that differs from what is presented here is, of course, one thing. Having one’s preconceptions blown up in the face of the real events taking place in his or her life is another!
Writing this book has been quite a journey. I have found more pearls in the ocean of the Bible than I was able to include. Even so, most will probably need to read this book more than once. Altogether the plan for humanity is very complex; my hope is that you will receive well my version of Jonah’s message.
The Hebrew Alphabet Number System survived the Flood and became the roadmap to decipher what was written in the 66 books of the Bible over a 1,600 year time span. This clock-making refugee from Germany had to sit down six years before the Apocalypse to tell about his discovery. It has left me no rest and no option other than to complete its writing and promotion so that others may read it - no matter how unpopular it may become with believers and/or non-believers.
God put this book together because I don’t even speak good English. I had no idea where to start when I was “told” to write. Even at 72 years of age, my journey is just beginning. I am looking forward to meet the Person I want most to meet, and I hope that he will be happy with me as his servant.
At my resurrection I will meet the Lord in the air. Afterward, I am looking forward to the training for my new job in the Millennium. Then I will have a chance to compare what I once wrote about in 2004 with what will have actually transpired.
While there may be some technical differences, I am sure that at the right time I will see all of God’s promises fulfilled to Israel and all peoples. When the Most Holy, the Shekinah presence of God enters the Temple, then He will dwell with us forever. Then shall the Kingdom of Heaven reside on earth.
The Apocalypse ends on 21 December 2015. A few years after the Apocalypse in about 2018, the survivors of Israel will lay the foundation for the building of a Fourth Temple, which will be built exactly as illustrated in Ezekiel chapters 40-43.
According to Daniel's 2,300-days prediction, the foundation of this Fourth Temple (4 = Daleth, "this world in this time") will be dedicated in 2018 as the cornerstone is laid. These coming events, as described at the end of the first book, will conclude the plan of God.
Re-reading Chapter 9 of Apocalypse Prophesied will enable you to better understand the full impact of the events of the Apocalypse as detailed in this book. That chapter relates many details about the New World government system that will be instituted after the conclusion of the Apocalypse. The nation of Israel will once again become the overseer of the oracles of God the Timekeeper. This New World government will demonstrate to all angels and humanity that God's laws of love work.
Read Chapter 6 next.
