The Last Countdown

The Prophet Daniel

Beginning in 2010, we made various time proclamations and gave the final warning message to the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Our warning went unheard, and God rejected the Seventh-day Adventist organization and its apostate leaders. The Vessel of Time had already indicated that that misfortune would happen. Two corresponding year triplets marked the beginning (1861-1863) and the end (2010-2012) of the organized church, but since we love our church, we didn’t want to admit it for a long time. God does not lie, however.

The New Light article series explained to God’s church the parts that make up the message of the fourth angel and what our high calling is, and we hoped that the church would join us in sounding the loud cry of Revelation 18. We were amazed, however, that the events of 2012, happened exclusively in the heavenly sanctuary and the earthly sanctuary of Paraguay, and we sought explanations for it. The Holy Spirit instructed us in regard to the events in the heavenly sanctuary in 2012, but we could not see corresponding events on the earth.

For some time, therefore, we thought that the events in the heavenly sanctuary had been detached by God’s grace from visible events which had yet to be fulfilled. Thus, it came down to a time shift of one year. We explained our previous understanding of the reasons at that time in the article Miller’s Mistake.

We assumed that our experiences in 2012 were like a divine blueprint for how the visible events would be fulfilled in 2013 and onwards. That is how we knew two big dates very precisely: February 27, 2013 as the beginning of the 1335 days and April 13, 2013 as the planned beginning of the time of trouble. The only unclear thing was whether April 13, 2013 would be the beginning of the 1290 days or the 1260 days. Therefore, we had to wait and see whether a suitable event would come on March 13, 2013, which could be deciphered as the beginning of the 1290 days.

As soon as we saw the world event exactly on the prophesied day, the election of the first Jesuit pope, then we also expected that, like Titus and the Roman army in the holy place, he would stand and destroy Jerusalem (faithful Adventists and followers of God). Because of that unique event, we began a new series of articles on Pope Francis, and later also recognized him to be Satan incarnate, who masquerades as an angel of light. Here is an overview diagram from the first article of that series, which shows how we saw the events of 2012 and 2013 linked:

Overview of Last-Day Events

We saw the following fulfillments before our eyes and interpreted them as follows:

The Beginning of the 1335 Days of Visible Events

One of our counters indicated the remaining days until the start of the last 1335 days of Daniel 12. It expired on the exact date of the public farewell of Pope Benedict XVI on February 27, 2013. We were the only ones in the world who had correctly predicted that date, which coincided with the beginning of the phase of the eighth head of Revelation 17.

The Beginning of the 1290 Days of Visible Events

The election of the first (and surely the last) Jesuit pope could now be clearly identified as the setting up of the abomination of Daniel 12. These 1290 days thus began on March 13, 2013 and extend to the destruction of Rome, i.e. Babylon, by the angry nations on September 24, 2016, 30 days before the coming of Christ. The article entitled The Beast from the Bottomless Pit covers that topic.

The Beginning of the 1260 Days of Visible Events

On Sabbath, April 13, 2013 a message was published which struck like a bomb from the Vatican. For the first time, Pope Francis has set up his “generals” in a council of cardinals, which come from all corners of the globe, to “reform the Vatican and its bureaucratic structures.” Thus was established a world-wide governmental structure of the Vatican for the first time in world history. This sensation marks like no other message on this homepage before it, the clear intention of the pope to reign world-wide and indeed with the full power of the Roman Catholic Church whose wound is now healed.

God’s change of plans

All that has been said thus far was the original plan of God, which would have come to pass had the Adventist church fulfilled its God-given mission of preaching the message of the third angel of Revelation 14. Unfortunately, they couldn’t sound the loud cry from 2012 or 2013 on because the leaders and the majority of members had rejected God’s message from Orion, which should have empowered them to do their work. Their pride forbade them from accepting the rebukes and corrections from God. The judgment of the living, which had been planned for 1260 days, could not begin on time, and a change of venue was needed. The voice of God should no longer go out from the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, but from Paraguay where God’s faithful in the movement of High Sabbath Adventists are headquartered. However, preparations had to be made in the heavenly realm as well as the earthly, for the restructuring, which needed a certain amount of time.

On the evening of January 31, 2014, Brother John received the light about the beginning of the trumpet cycle, its duration, and the knowledge of a coming plague cycle of the Clock of God in Orion. That is when he delivered his sermon entitled The Last Race, which had actually begun and would culminate in the battle of Armageddon at the 2016 feast of tabernacles.

We wondered why God made the trumpet cycle occupy only 624 days, thus spanning about half of the judgment of the living’s 1260 days. Although we recognized from the study of the rations of Ezekiel that there was a division of the 1260 days into sections of 636 and 624 days, we did not understand yet why the trumpet cycle was so short. Today we know that the judgment of the living really only started with the trumpet cycle on February 1, 2014, and not on May 6, 2012 as in the above diagram. God foreknew that we would one day ask for more time and would thus fill in the gap for the Adventist Church’s infidelity. The change of venue and the relocation of the seat of the voice of God and His earthly authority had caused a delay of 636 days in beginning the judgment of the living. Those 636 days would therefore have to come later!

That is why God divided the trumpet cycle into two parts: one part before the Summit of Time on October 23, 2016, which was comprised of the 624 days of rations from Ezekiel’s autumn feasts, and the complementary trumpet cycle extending from November 22, 2016 to August 20, 2018, which is the original 636 days of the rations from the spring feasts, which were relocated. A few of the trumpet texts already fulfilled on the first pass (for example, see Trumpets with a Certain Sound or Babylon Is Fallen!), but we saw that there were always parts of the trumpets which had not yet been completely fulfilled. As soon as the second trumpet cycle began on November 22, 2016, we quickly recognized that those unfulfilled parts of the Bible texts were starting to be fulfilled almost literally (see Fulfilled Prophecies).

We followed the diagram above for a long time, because it would have been God’s original plan with a faithful Adventist church. After the first trumpet cycle ended, which was the only one we knew at that time, the “year of plagues” began on October 25, 2015 in a new cycle, the length of which could also be calculated with the portions of the Holy Spirit from the shadows of the sacrifices. For 372 days we experienced “plagues” that seemed, oddly enough, still mixed with mercy. We saw the terrible developments in regard to LGBT acceptance in the churches, and we anticipated the day of the demon. Islam flooded Europe and other countries, and the locusts multiplied explosively in the same-sex way. We needed to use those 372 daily portions of food rations from God to keep from losing the faith and remain anchored in Time. God provided wonderfully. The question grew louder and louder: “when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”

It wasn’t until the 2016 feast of tabernacles, when the wave of God the Father’s second time proclamation reached us just before the expected coming of Jesus on the 24th (23rd) of October, 2016, that we began to understand the whole interrelationship in general. Finally, we realized that the election of Pope Francis was in fact the fulfillment of the setting up of the abomination of Daniel 12 and the warning of the coming of a terrible persecution, but that it was not to come to pass immediately at that time.

In both God’s original and modified timetables, the Jesuit general George Mario Bergoglio as Pope Francis fulfills the type of a Roman general. In His original timetable, Pope Francis was the anti-type of General Cestius, who surprisingly withdrew the Roman army, thus opening the way for the Christians to flee from Jerusalem for three and a half years before General Titus appeared and the siege closed in again for good, and the massacre began soon afterward.

In God’s original plan (diagram above), Pope Francis at his election on March 13, 2013 stood as the Roman general Cestius in a place where he ought not, and thus he fulfilled the type in the warning that Jesus personally enunciated. According to the example given us by the two sieges of Jerusalem and the timelines of Daniel, “General Titus” should begin his siege 1290 days later at the autumn feasts in 2016.

Pope Francis fulfills the type again, this time of General Titus who brought death. In God’s adjusted timetable, which was modified to accommodate our request for more time, Pope Francis stood in a holy place where he ought not stand when as General Titus, he stood before both houses of the US Congress on September 24, 2015, and again on the following day when he opened the UN General Assembly as the leader of the world—or as a beast whose wound was healed (diagram below). This time it was dead serious, however, and no longer a warning.

Nevertheless, he didn’t begin his siege to starve God’s people on that date, which was a year too early according to the type, because God had not allowed it yet. There were still 30 daily rations remaining of the 624 days from Ezekiel’s autumn feasts and the 372 rations of the Holy Spirit that still prohibited him from commencing his work of destruction. Satan as General Titus knew of the waiting period that was imposed on him, so he decreed his own “Year of Mercy” from December 8, 2015 to November 20, 2016. Not even two days after its expiration, the final complementary trumpets began to sound on November 22, 2016, and Israel went up in flames. Signs from God can’t get any clearer. “Titus” is back.

Even more interesting than that date is the date of the beginning of “General Titus’” siege, which God established. It is the date when everyone who heard the warning message from Orion, but did not believe it, are just as lost as the people who remained in Jerusalem between A.D. 66 and 70, in spite of Jesus’ warning. When Jesus did not come back on October 24, 2016, the door of mercy of God’s greatest message to mankind was closed to the critics, skeptics, and scoffers. Whoever didn’t believe in the message and respond and join us before that time, is more surely not going to do so now. Furthermore, those who left us after the Summit of Time passed by, or even rebelled against God’s messengers, will probably never again reach out for God’s arm of salvation. However:

The broken ranks will be filled up by those represented by Christ as coming in at the eleventh hour. There are many with whom the Spirit of God is striving. The time of God’s destructive judgments is the time of mercy for those who [now] have no opportunity to learn what is truth. Tenderly will the Lord look upon them. His heart of mercy is touched, His hand is still stretched out to save, while the door is closed to those who would not enter. Large numbers will be admitted who in these last days hear the truth for the first time.—Letter 103, 1903. {LDE 182.2}

“General Titus” intends to seal the fate of the last faithful Christians with a death decree set for April 6, 2019, precisely 1290 days after his speech to the UN. However, he will suffer total defeat, because Jesus will stop him and return shortly thereafter. (Read the first chapter of the Great Controversy!)

The wave of the second time proclamation, which started just before the Day of Atonement in 2016, was to last a few more months until the series of articles entitled The Sacrifice of Philadelphia was completed in January, 2017 on our new study website, White Cloud Farm. The last article of the series, The Seven Lean Years, treats and explains in detail the new view of the Daniel timelines, the second trumpet cycle, and the final arrangement of end-time events. If that article of the four-part series alone were printed in book form, it would be a book with over 250 pages.

For that reason, we refer to that article for further explanations, and here we present only the new diagram of the Daniel timelines for comparison with the old. We hope and pray that the remaining daily rations of the Holy Spirit, of the 636 which are being dispensed since November 22, 2016, will still guide many to the whole truth.
