The 144000

For six millennia God has been working with each individual who will be part of the structure of His new government that is about to be established. Jesus Christ will be the head of that new government and the 144,000, whom God has chosen and trained, will be resurrected to serve in that government. So who are the 144,000 Although the number is not given in Revelation 5, these are the same ones mentioned earlier when it was shown that Jesus Christ was the only one that God revealed was worthy...

Man and

The first chapter of Hebrews tells God's purpose for mankind. It is contained in what God reveals through Jesus Christ God, who at various times and in different ways, spoke in times past unto the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom Jesus Christ He God has appointed heir of all things, by through whom Jesus Christ also He God made the worlds ages , (Hebrews 1 1-2) Paul is explaining how God has communicated with (worked with) mankind through His...

The Choice of Life or Death

The purpose for human life is that God is reproducing Himself. The bottom line in all this is that, in time, all human beings will be given the opportunity to choose whether or not they want to be in God's Family. However, when the time comes, it will not be an easy transition. We cannot become a part of God's Family with our current selfish nature because it is the opposite of God's nature. It is only through the experience of human life, of being made physical (as mortal human beings) with...

The Third Thunder is the growing destructiveness from weather

The record-setting hurricane season of 2005 in the United States has already been mentioned. Experts expected Hurricane Katrina (which hit Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi on August 29, 2005) to be the costliest natural disaster in U.S. history. Some early estimates exceeded 100 billion, but, as it turns out, the economic impact has exceeded 200 billion. Just this past week (March 22, 2006), Cyclone Larry (same as a hurricane, except in the northern hemisphere), a Category 5 storm, struck...

Gods Church

At the same time all these events come together at the sounding of the Fifth Trumpet, there will be an initial period of time (five months) when much human suffering will continue as a result of the first four trumpets. This marks a time of great suffering on a worldwide scale, but even now, God's Church is still part of these prophetic events. God's Church still exists on earth, and will continue, all the way up to the very return of Jesus Christ but many who were scattered in the Church,...

Does Christianity Hold the

Christianity comprises 2.2 billion people on earth, yet they do not agree among themselves about God or Jesus Christ because their beliefs (faith) vary with thousands of opposing doctrines. Is one of them true If they disagree with one another in doctrine about what is the true word of God, then by the very definition of truth they cannot all be true. If the world is not already in enough chaos and confusion when it comes to religion, then certainly Christianity has made it many, many times...

The Mystery Of God Revealed

In regard to the title of this chapter, many may ask the question, What mystery Depending upon your religious background, you may not believe there is any mystery about God. You may believe that you know who God is. The religions of the world have different ideas about God. Even the groups in traditional Christianity (denominational or nondenominational) have different ideas about God. This is obvious, since each believes that its God teaches mankind something different from all others. And, as...

The Council of Nicea

In 325 A.D., the Catholic Church convened the Council of Nicea. I will simply cover the highlights of this momentous event. The Passover was in controversy and the Catholic Church wanted to be rid of it, since it wanted to be fully separate from all ties that associated it with the true Church of God, which faithfully observed the yearly Passover. It also wanted to distance itself from Judaism. The annual observance of Passover was replaced with the observance of Easter, which itself was rife...

The God of Abraham Revealed

As God was giving Moses charge to lead Israel out of Egypt, He began to reveal more about Himself and His purpose for mankind. Before God began to reveal His purpose, He first began to reveal who He was God Hebrew -Elohim-uniplural word for God spoke to Moses, and said to him, I am the ETERNAL ONE Hebrew -Yahweh means the self-existing one and is often translated as LORD or JEHOVAH , I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, by the name of God Almighty Hebrew -El Shaddai , but by my name...

The Truth About Yahweh

Herbert W. Armstrong, was given understanding that the Trinity was a false teaching. He learned that the holy spirit is not a being, but that it is the very power of God. He also learned that God's purpose for mankind is for them to become members of the God Family (Elohim) and that God's Family is not a closed trinity, but instead, it can grow into the billions. But there is only one eternally-existing member of Elohim and that is the ETERNAL ONE (Yahweh). Mr....

Much Revelation Yet Reserved

Nothing more specific on the Fifth Trumpet can be given at this time. A little more is mentioned in my first book, but not much. It is God's purpose that many of the details of these events, and the revelation of their complete meaning, be reserved for another time. This time will be just prior to their actual occurrence or at the moment they begin to take place on earth. This will be reserved for greater revelation from God's two end-time witnesses at this very time. The same is true about...

The Answer

Again, the underlying current of the interviewers was, Why should anyone believe you over others So indeed, why should anyone believe what is written in either book That is the whole point People cannot believe these things unless there is proof. This is part of the reason God has chosen to reveal end-time events in the manner that He has. Through the centuries, people have been lied to about God this very subject will be covered in the next chapter. Every religion in this world cannot be right...

Elijahs Story Repeated

There is a story in the Book of Kings that is about to be repeated on a spiritual plane for God's Church. Israel became separated from God and turned to other ideas about God. They turned to Baal worship by mingling the teachings of Baal with those of God. Elijah challenged all the prophets of Baal and told the Israelites that they should quit stumbling back and forth between two different thoughts about God And Elijah came to all the people, and said, How long will you falter between two...

God IN Christ

In John 14, Jesus Christ told the disciples that since they believed God, they also were to believe Him. Believing in Christ is far beyond simply believing that He lived and died nearly 2,000 years ago for the sins of mankind. Instead, it has everything to do with believing all that He said, which the world does not. Jesus told them it was now time for Him to go and prepare a place for them. People do not grasp what He was telling them. He gave them these words on the very last night of His...

The Seven Thunders Of The 6th SEAL

In the last chapter, it was shown that the Sixth Seal is a transitional period. It concludes the spiritual phase of God's plan to finish His work of final training and sealing of those few, still living, who will be added to complete the 144,000 and be in His new government. This is an awesome thing For six millennia God has been molding and preparing a government to rule in righteousness over all the earth for 1,000 years. As we approach the end of this spiritual phase of God's work, a...

God Began to Create

God is an eternal being the One and only Being of all eternity. You are limited in your understanding to the physical plane. You cannot begin to understand the great depth of such knowledge that is spiritual in nature. No one can. God reveals that all knowledge, all understanding, all wisdom, and all thought are from Him. In His Being, in His Wisdom, in His Word (Greek - logos -revelatory thought which is the product of His Divine thinking), Almighty God...

The Creation of

The next sequence in God's plan was the creation of mankind. Many who read the first chapter of Genesis believe they are reading about the initial creation of the universe. They are not They are reading about the refashioning of the earth when life was placed upon it once more. The earth had existed for millions of years, yet without life, since the time of Satan's rebellion. The first chapter of Genesis tells the story of God reshaping the earth to make it inhabitable, once again, so that He...

Seventh Trumpet is divided into Seven Last Plagues

The Sixth Seal (the current period at the time of this writing) has Seven Thunders that sound intermittently throughout this period, growing louder, even as they continue into the period of the Seventh Seal. There are Seven Seals of the Book of Revelation that are opened by Jesus Christ. The Seventh Seal itself is divided into seven distinct periods of great physical destruction unleashed on the earth, and these events are announced by the sounding of Seven Trumpets. The last three of the Seven...

Why Such Massive Destruction

The catastrophic events of the Seventh Seal will result in global destruction and the death of over 6 billion people. It will be the final three and one-half years of man's self-rule on earth, and it will end with the establishment of God's righteous rule for the next 1,000 years. This perfect world-ruling government of God will be led by Jesus Christ. The 144,000, who have been resurrected to serve as kings and priests in this government, will be ruling with Him in the Kingdom of God. This...

Satans Rise to Power

In prophecy, stars are symbolic of angels. One simple example of a star that is misinterpreted by the world of traditional Christianity is the one that led the wise men to Bethlehem, where the Messiah was born. Traditional Christianity pictures this as a literal star over the little town of Bethlehem. Yet, most people do not know that it wasn't a literal star in the heavens, but an angel that directed them where to go. The star in Revelation 9 1 refers to Satan. John's vision represents Satan's...

Opening the Seventh Seal

When Jesus Christ opens the Seventh Seal of Revelation, God declares that the final three and one-half years of great tribulation will begin, and man's self-rule will be brought to an end. Satan's influence and power over man will also be brought to an end at this time. He will not be allowed to have any influence over man for nearly 1,000 years, after which time, he will be allowed to do so once again for one final, very short period of time. Once the Seventh Seal is opened, the first of Seven...

Mans Last

This last day of man's self-rule will be the greatest single day of destruction in all history, but it will also bring the greatest good news to man that anyone could ever hope to imagine. The day the Seventh Trumpet is blown will be the third and final woe upon the earth. But three and one-half days prior to this, God's two witnesses will be killed in the streets of Jerusalem. This event will lead to the first great event that will begin on that last day And when they the two witnesses shall...

Why Man Was Made Physical

Now, one may ask, Why didn't God simply create us as spiritual God beings and immediate members of His Divine Family The answer is God cannot create righteous character in individual beings because living according to God's righteousness is a matter of choice. Do you remember what happened to the angelic realm If any being is given the power of independence with individual mental capacity, then that being also has the ability of free choice. Not everyone will choose God's perfect way of life,...

The Second Trumpet

Then the second angel sounded and there was something like a great mountain burning with fire that was cast into the sea, and a third part of the sea became like blood. And a third part of the living creatures which were in the sea died, and a third part of the ships were destroyed. (Revelation 8 8-9) This event will take place primarily over water, but its effect will also decimate much of the coastline of the United States, the United Kingdom and some of their allies, including the complete...

The Final Rise of a United Europe

For over fifty years now, Europe has been moving toward a union of nations. It began in the early 1950's with the vision of a stronger European economy being formed through the European Common Market. This finally evolved into a greater unification through the governing power of the European Union. There has been a constant driving force within Europe to unite under a stronger governing organization of nations. Over time, a core block of those nations forged a stronger bond by the adoption of a...

The Sabbath Question

The Seventh Day Adventist Church has some conflicting practices among themselves, but the one they have built their name upon regards the timing of their weekly Sabbath observance. This is a matter of strong belief (faith) on their part. Although most Seventh Day Adventists in the United States believe it is permissible to observe the annual period of Christmas and Easter, many of their brethren in other countries vehemently disagree. But they do all agree that the seventh-day Sabbath...

Other Deceptions

There are only two branches, known as Christianity, that have their roots in the first century A.D. One is the true Church of God that has always existed since it began in 31 A.D. This Church has always carried the identity to whom it belongs God. The other church is the Catholic Church. No other churches can be traced back to this beginning in the first century. All other churches have either split off from the true Church of God after abandoning the truth, or they have splintered off from the...

The Great Deception

Over the past 6,000 years, it has not been God's purpose to reveal Himself to the world, however, throughout the next 1,000 years, God's purpose is to reveal Himself mightily to all mankind. This process is beginning, even now, through the pages of this book. In the beginning, God revealed Himself to Adam and Eve. They rejected the knowledge of God, and thereby rejected God by deciding for themselves what was good and evil. They rejected the authority of God and established themselves as the...

God and Christ IN

By telling the disciples these things, Jesus Christ was preparing them for the coming of the holy spirit that would be poured out upon them, beginning on the day of Pentecost. Through His dying, as the payment for the sins of all mankind, He fulfilled the purpose God revealed through the Passover Lamb. After His resurrection, Jesus Christ became our High Priest, and through Him, man could now have access to the very throne of God. Having access to God has been made possible because sin can be...

The Angelic Realm

Multiple millions of angels were created. God does not give the exact number, but He does reveal that He created three angels who were superior to the rest in importance, might, beauty, authority, and power. These three are referred to by name Michael, Gabriel, and Lucifer. In time, after the angelic creation, God began to create the physical universe. Up to this point in time, only the spirit realm existed. The creation of the universe was exciting to the angelic family of God. God said that,...

The Seven Thunders

Not only did God close up the meaning and timing for the events of the Seven Seals of Revelation until they were to be revealed in this prophetic end-time, but He also told John not to write about what he heard concerning the Seven Thunders. God wanted the Seven Thunders to remain sealed until this very time as well. God did all this as part of a process through which He would reveal who one of His end-time witnesses was, the one through whom He would fully reveal all that John had written in...

Seven Last Plagues

The third and final woe that will follow the blast of the Seventh Trumpet is divided into seven specific events, which are called the Seven Last Plagues of God's wrath. This wrath will be on those who still will refuse to submit to God. This wrath will crush the superpowers of Europe and China along with her allies Then I saw another sign in heaven that was massively great and amazing, with seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them is filled up the wrath of God. . . Then one of...

The Sixth Seal

We are, right now, in the time period of the Sixth Seal with only one seal remaining to be opened. This book is being written toward the end of this period of time. There isn't much time left before the Seventh Seal will be opened and the last three and one-half years of man's rule will be brought to a close. This prophetic time, which is recorded throughout the Bible, is described as the worst time of destruction and death the earth has ever witnessed. Before that last seal is opened, you need...

The Seventh Plague

When the last vial is poured out, these two powers will stop fighting each other. They will declare a quick truce because they suddenly fear something much greater than each other Then the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air, and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done There were noises, and thunder, and lightning, and there was a great earthquake such as there never has been since mankind was on the earth. The earthquake so mighty...

The Fifth Trumpet

The blast from the Fifth Trumpet will announce the emergence of a great political power and a great religious power on earth. The Biblical symbolisms contained in the description of the message from this trumpet blast are prophetically unique. Rather than having readers become bogged down with an overwhelming amount of Biblical study that serves no purpose here, I will simply give an overview of the meaning and outcome. This trumpet will announce the first great woe on the earth. The prophetic...

The Fourth Trumpet

Then the fourth angel sounded, and a third of the sun was struck, and a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. So the sun did not shine for a third of the day, and likewise the night. Then I looked, and I heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabitants of the earth because of the trumpet blasts from the three angels who are yet to sound (Revelation 8 12-13) The cumulative effect from the...

The Seventh Trumpet

In the first great event on the last day of the end-time tribulation, Jesus Christ will be in the heavens above the earth with the 144,000 who will be resurrected. The display from earth will perplex mankind. Some will know the significance and will anticipate Jesus Christ coming, while others, who still resist, will see this awesome display as a threat to their power and existence. Finally, man's reign will be brought to an end The second woe is past, and behold, the third woe is coming...

The First Four Trumpets

The first four trumpet blasts will announce four powerfully destructive events that will bring about the total collapse of the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and some countries of Western Europe. The direct effect of all four events is first and foremost upon the United States. The events, declared by these first four trumpets, are a prophetic fulfillment of the symbolism contained in the events of 9-11, when the World Trade Towers and the Pentagon were...

The Third Trumpet

Then the third angel sounded and what appeared like a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third part of the rivers and on the springs of waters. The name of the star is called Wormwood, and a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters because they were made bitter. (Revelation 8 10-11). Each of these three events will become progressively more devastating upon the United States and her closest allies. This lethal blow will finally...

Two Branches of Christianity

Simon Magus became the father of one of the greatest deceptions ever foisted upon mankind. He set out to establish a counterfeit of what he saw the disciples doing. In order to accomplish his new pursuit of self-aggrandizement, he went so far as to take upon himself the name of the chief apostle to the Jewish people, Simon Peter. Since the disciples were establishing a church, he continued his great lie by establishing his own version of Christianity and a different church. He began to mix his...

Armageddon

The last great battle of mankind (described in Revelation and prophetically known as Armageddon) is the account of these two superpowers converging upon one another and the battle that ensues. This confrontation is inevitable. This time coincides with the very end of the three and one-half years of final end-time tribulation. The actual region of Megiddo is known anciently in Biblical times as the place of several great military slaughters. Therefore, the name has great significance in...

Mankind to Become the Godkind

God's entire purpose for all creation (everything He created) is to reproduce Himself by bringing into existence a God Family (Elohim). From the beginning there has only been the ETERNAL (Yahweh) who is God (El), the Almighty Creator, and there was no one else God first created the angelic realm within the spirit world. They were created first, and they were the first to share in His great plan and purpose. The angels were created as spirit beings for the purpose of caring for God's physical...

The Faith of the Trinity

People who embrace any of the thousands of Christian beliefs need to know what their church teaches, where their beliefs originate, and whether they truly come from God. If they find lies, then they must change or willingly submit to what they know is false, and thereby be guilty of opposing the one true God. The scriptures upon which most Christians base their faith says, God is a Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4 24). If someone knowingly holds...

The Mystery of Melchizedek

Melchizedek is known as being a high priest of God unto Abraham. In the book of Hebrews, Jesus Christ is spoken of as being made a High Priest after the order of Melchizedek. First, let's notice what the Book of Hebrews has to say concerning Melchizedek For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, blessed him, to whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all (tithe), and who first being by interpretation King of...

How God Worked With Abraham

Much can be learned about how God can dwell in mankind by understanding how He revealed Himself to Abraham. Let's focus first upon the occasion when God and two angels visited Abraham. It was at this time that God first told Abraham that Sarah would give birth to a son, even though she was well beyond the years for childbearing. The entire story does not need to be repeated here, but only that portion that begins to reveal understanding The ETERNAL ONE Yahweh appeared to him Abraham in the...

God the Eternal One

As previously stated, the Hebrew word Yahweh means the Eternal One or the Self-Existing One. The key word in all this is One. As the most basic core of their belief about God, Judaism and Islam believe that there is one God They both believe that there is only one God who is eternal, who has eternally existed. However, traditional Christianity has never believed this about God. The basic faith (belief) of traditional Christianity is the Trinity. The Catholic Church established this doctrine...

Those Being Sealed

Who are these 144,000 who are to receive God's seal, and what does this mean There have been numerous theological ideas about who this 144,000 might be, but as always, man's religion is wrong. The problem with man's religion is that he does not understand the purpose and plan that God is working out on this earth. The refusal of religious scholars to be truthful with these verses has only helped to keep traditional Christianity in darkness. Much of the problem with scholars is that they believe...

The Sixth Trumpet

Although Europe will step in to fill the power vacuum left by the collapse of the United States, there will be other countries that will immediately begin to prepare for world conquest. They know Europe, and they will not have Europe exercise control over their future Then the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar, which is before God, saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, Release the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates....

Made in the Image of

God is reproducing Himself by building a Family that will become the Kingdom of God. This has been God's plan and purpose from the very beginning, before anything was ever created, including the spirit world with the angelic realm. Before God created anything, He determined how He would fulfill His plan. God predetermined that man would be made in His very image, after His likeness. This first phase was the physical phase of His creation of mankind when He (God) made his (man's) physical...

The First Trumpet

The First Trumpet blast will occur quickly after the Seventh Seal of Revelation is opened by Jesus Christ. Even as I am writing, the events prophesied to take place during these trumpet blasts are already showing signs of emerging on the world scene. Much of what will occur is simply being held back by God until it is His time to allow it. God is going to allow mankind to bring about one more world war. If God were not in control of the timing, some of these events would have already begun but...

The Fourth Thunder is global economic upheaval

The world is entering into a time of final upheaval for the global economy. The stock market cannot continue its masquerade of being healthy and robust while being falsely propped up by positive talk, pseudo-exuberance and creative forecasting. The day of reckoning is now on the world's doorstep. Many deeply-felt pangs of sickness will reverberate throughout the world as we draw nearer to a huge market crash. Some nations are already indicating a shift from dollar to euro as a better assurance...

The Reign of Gods Government

Time has run out for man, and the time has come for God's government to be established. Yes, all end-time events described throughout the Book of Revelation mark the end of man's self-rule and the beginning of God's rule. The very last day of man's self-rule the last day of the three and one-half years of great tribulation is marked by powerful events. The events of that day will be described in more detail in another chapter, but it is important to note the power of this transition from man's...

The Final Three Onehalf Years

This chapter will address the sequence of events which will unfold during the final three and one-half years of man's self-rule on earth. These events are not pleasant to read about because they are catastrophic beyond belief. These events will begin when the Seventh Seal is opened. We have arrived at one of the most fearful moments in time that is spoken about in the Word of God. It is a time like no other. God said that there has never been a time like this, nor ever will be again. It is a...

The Fifth Thunder is death

The first three thunders obviously include a marked increase in death from escalation in worldwide devastation. This thunder is in addition to that destruction and will occur in a specific manner. All seven thunders should serve to be a very sobering witness testimony to the validity that the final end-time destruction, as recorded in prophecy, is now at hand and that God's end-time spokesman for His two witnesses has now come and he is indeed from God. The Seven Thunders will be the beginning...

The First Thunder

September 11, 2001 was a day that thundered so loudly that the very mention of it is recognized all over this world. Mention that day anywhere on earth and people know what happened. However, people do not yet recognize the real meaning behind why this day is so vastly important. What happened in New York, Washington D.C. and a field in Pennsylvania is not what is most important about this day. What happened on a Biblical plane is of far greater significance This date became etched in the minds...

The Prophetic Symbolism of 911

From the vantage point of all the nations of the world, there could be no greater symbolism of the height of the greatness in wealth, might, and stature of the United States than the World Trade Center towers. To better understand some of this symbolism, let's consider some of the history about these towers The World Trade Center towers were best known for its iconic 110-story Twin Towers. The towers survived a bombing on February 26, 1993, but all of the original buildings in the complex were...

Time Has Run Out for Man Gods Coming Government

God's purpose from the outset, before He ever placed man on earth, was to give him 6,000 years of self-rule before He would step in and bring to a close the great lesson from that entire period man cannot rule himself. The true witness of man's history is that he has consistently rejected God and His ways, and the consequence is that he has been unable to successfully rule himself. This is the greatest lesson that can be learned from man's time on earth. In the beginning, God established the...

Gods Two Witnesses

It is with apprehension and heaviness of heart that I begin to write a second book. My first book, The Prophesied End-Time, was published nearly a year and a half ago and has been distributed in over 100 countries. It describes the prophetic end-time destruction that is about to come on this earth. It foretells of World War III and the overthrow of the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and much of Western Europe. Some of these events, as well as other prophesied...
