- Removing Seals: Making Known What Has Been Secret

Rereading Prophecy

The Whore of Babylon



Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great prostitute who is seated on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth have committed sexual immorality, and with the wine of whose sexual immorality the dwellers on earth have become drunk.” And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her sexual immorality. And on her forehead was written a name of mystery: “Babylon the great, mother of prostitutes and of earth's abominations.” And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. (Rev 17:1–6)




Each commentary within this Rereading Prophecy series strives to be a self-contained essay, meaning that similar information will appear in each commentary and the same example year for the Second Passover will be used.


Once dominion is taken from the four kings with their seven heads and from the little horn (Dan 7:11–12, 26), these demonic beasts have no power, no authority. When these four are seen in Scripture after having their dominion taken from them, they rise from the sea, with their ten horns and seven heads (Rev 13:1), and the dragon gives them his power and his throne and his great authority (v. 2). But when cast from heaven, that old serpent Satan the devil and his angels (Rev 12:7–10) have no throne, no authority or dominion over living things. Satan usurps the authority of the Son of Man: he takes by deceit the authority that rightfully belongs to Christ by claiming he is the returning Messiah, and he uses the traditional identifying mark of Christ, the cross, as the mark he requires all who would buy and sell to bear.

When the dragon and his angels are cast from heaven on the doubled day 1260, Satan as the fallen king of Babylon (Isa 14:4) is still a powerful cherub. He is the then-fallen spiritual king of Babylon, and as the human king of Babylon Nebuchadnezzar had his reason taken from him for seven years (Dan chap 4), this spiritual king of Babylon will have the mind of an anointed cherub taken from him. He will be given the mind of a man as the false prophet was given the mind of a man at the beginning of the Affliction (Dan 7:4). But once the kingdom of this world is given to the Son of Man, Head and Body, the saints will have the mind of Christ in them. They cannot physically prevail against an anointed cherub and his angels, but they can mentally prevail by enduring in faith to the end. Hence, the endtime good news that must be proclaimed to the world as a witness to all nations is that all who endure to the end shall be saved (Matt 24:13–14). Those disciples who are sent forth to proclaim this good news—to proclaim that “the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matt 10:7)—will not have gone through all of the “towns” [assemblies] of Israel before the Son of Man comes (vv. 22–23).

Satan is not the beast with seven heads and ten horns (see section #4 of this essay for a brief discussion of the seven-headed dragon versus the seven-headed beast); he is not the king of Greece, who is the eighth but belongs to the seven. But Satan as the little horn possessed the man of perdition in the Affliction and comes in the Endurance as the true Antichrist, Satan “rides” this beast with seven heads and ten horns; he rides the king or prince of Greece, in that he gives his great (though usurped) power and authority to this beast that speaks haughty and blasphemous words against God … this seven-headed beast is allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months (Rev 13:5), or for 1260 days, the length of the Endurance. So this seven-headed beast comes when dominion is taken from the four kings and the little horn, and this seven-headed beast goes when the Messiah comes and casts the false prophet and the Antichrist’s restored king of the North into the lake of fire (Rev 19:20), and then has the dragon bound in the Abyss for a thousand years.

The call for a mind with wisdom (Rev 17:9) is answered when the disciple understands that the beast with seven heads and ten horns that carries the scarlet woman—the beast that “‘was, and is not, and is about to rise from the bottomless pit and go to destruction’” (v. 8)—is the king of Greece after the first or great horn is suddenly broken at the Second Passover liberation of Israel. Again, this beast is not Satan who as the little horn possessing the man of perdition, rode this beast throughout the 1260 day long Affliction that began with the Second Passover, and rides this beast as the scarlet woman drunk on the blood of martyrs in the 1260 day long Endurance. Neither this beast nor the woman is the Roman Church or any human institution. This beast is not of this world although when Satan and his angels are cast from heaven, this beast is in this world.

As the example year used throughout this essay series, the Second Passover will be said to occur on the second Passover in 2011, or on Julian day #2455700.5. The kingdom of this world is taken from the four kings and the little horn 1260 days later, or on Halloween 2014: the four kings with their seven heads and the little horn will reign over the kingdom of this world through 30 October, 2014, or Julian day #2456960.5. But on the following day, these four kings that are all kings of the single “king” or kingdom of Greece will have had dominion taken from them. This day will be Julian day #2456961.5, October 31, 2014, the second half of the doubled day 1260. And the fourth king, the king of the North, Death, will have been dealt a mortal wound when the two witnesses are resurrected from death … when the kingdom of this world is given to the Son of Man, the Holy Spirit will be poured out on all flesh (Joel 2:28): the Son of Man will baptize the world in spirit (Matt 3:11). And all living creatures will have their natures changed (Isa 11:6–9). Men will receive the nature of Christ Jesus, and will lose their present rebellious natures that come from the Adversary.

When the kingdom of this world is given to the Son of Man and Christ Jesus baptizes the world in spirit, thereby liberating every person from indwelling sin and death as the Christian Church is liberated from indwelling sin and death at the Second Passover, Sin will be slain: Sin as the rider of the black horse will no longer buy and sell either the early harvest of God, the barley harvest, or the latter harvest, the wheat harvest. People will no longer be merchandise to be bought and sold; for every person will have become a firstborn son of God (Rev 18:4). So the third king of the four kings, the four-headed leopard to whom dominion was given (Dan 7:6) will only have life in those Christians who rebelled against God in the great falling away (2 Thess 2;3) on day 220, Christmas 2011. In every other person, this king shall be dead and be no more.

The fourth king, Death, will be dealt a mortal wound when the two witnesses are resurrected from death, thereby establishing that men shall live. The testimony of one witness does not establish a matter. It takes the testimony of two or three witnesses to establish a matter. So when Jesus was resurrected from death, He introduced the reality that men shall live, but by Himself, having come from heaven, He could not establish this reality so that it would be believed by all of humankind. However, when the two witnesses are publicly resurrected from death, Death as the spiritual king of the North shall be slain … but the mortal wound delivered to this king shall be healed and the whole world will marvel when the dragon, who claims to be the Messiah, makes an image of Death, gives it life by slaying those who must be slain (those who will not worship this image of the cross), and requires all of humanity who would buy and sell, regardless of whether small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to worship this beastly king of the North.

But it wasn’t Death who killed the two witnesses: it was Apollyon, king of the Abyss, the second king, the bear, the second horseman. And when the kingdom of this world is given to the Son of Man, Apollyon will have no dominion. In the Affliction, he “was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that men should slay one another” (Rev 6:4), but this will not be the case in the Endurance when all of humankind will have the mind of Christ. Thus, the five kings who were alive in the Affliction but who have fallen (Rev 17:10) in the Endurance are the four heads of Sin, the king of the South, with each of these heads being a king, plus Apollyon, the bear. These are five of the seven heads of the single king of Greece, with each head being a king in his own right. All of these kings emerged from around the stump of the broken first king or horn of the king of Greece when the four beasts of Daniel chapter seven appeared to the prophet in vision.

When the angel pours out the sixth of the seven bowls of God’s Wrath, John records,

The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, to prepare the way for the kings from the east. And I saw, coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs. For they are demonic spirits, performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God the Almighty. … And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon. (Rev 16:12–16 emphasis added)

The dragon is Satan: there is no doubt about him being a fallen or rebelling angel so it is reasonable for him to spew forth demonic spirits, sending them forth by the commands of his mouth. And since the beast who was dealt a mortal wound and the false prophet also spew forth demonic spirits, sending them forth by the commands of their mouths, doing what Satan does, it is reasonable to assume that both the beast dealt the mortal wound and the false prophet are like Satan in that they too are fallen or rebelling angels.

Of the beast with seven heads, the head or king that “is” throughout the Endurance is the false prophet who had his wings plucked off and was made to walk on two feet and was given the mind of a man at the beginning of the Affliction, 2520 days earlier than Armageddon. Because he was given the mind of man, he escaped understanding what happened when the kingdom of this world was taken from the four beasts and the kittle horn and given to the Son of Man; hence, he has soldiered on with his bow, venturing forth to conquer even after the crown he was given has been taken from him. He conquered men during the Affliction, but after dominion is taken from the four kings with seven heads, he must go forth to conquer those he once conquered.

Yes, four “kings” equal seven kings when one of those four kings is, himself, a federation of four kings as the single king of Greece is a federation of the four kings or beasts that appeared to Daniel in vision. The ten horns on the head of the fourth king or beast are ten kings. So the single prince or king of Greece whom the angel told Daniel will come (Dan 10:20) consisted of its first king or great horn, plus the four kings or horns that sprout from the stump of the broken first king, with the third of these four being a federation of four kings and with the fourth having ten additional kings on its head, plus the little horn that at least temporarily uproots three of these ten. All of these kings are Satan’s angels, and all are cast from heaven when Satan is cast from heaven (Rev 12:7–10).

Of the seven heads, each a king, each a mountain, the one who must come but must remain only a short while is Death, the head dealt a mortal wound that was healed by the dragon. At Armageddon, Death will again reign over the assembled kings of the earth.

“‘As for the beast that was and is not, it is an eighth but it belongs to the seven, and it goes to destruction’” (Rev 17:11)—this beast is, again, the amalgamated bronze king of Greece “‘which shall rule over all the earth’” (Dan 2:39). The iron legs of the image Nebuchadnezzar saw are the king of the South and the king of the North, Sin and Death, the third and fourth beasts of Daniel’s vision in the third year of Belshazzar, the third and fourth horsemen of the Apocalypse. These iron legs are of the bronze king/kingdom as the Ptolemaic and Seleucid Empires coming from the Wars of the Diadochi were Greek empires and were of Alexander.



Sabbatarian Christians, Latter Day Saints, and much of Evangelical Christendom vigorously contend that the woman arrayed in purple and scarlet represents the Roman Church when this is not the case … when the Second Passover occurs, the world of Christianity changes: every Christian will be suddenly born of God and with have the Torah written on hearts and put into minds so that all Christians truly Know the Lord. These Christians will not necessarily remain Trinitarians or Arians; for by Knowing the Lord, they will know the Holy Spirit is not a personage but is the life-giving, divine breath of the Father. They will know that Christ Jesus, not the Father, is the creator of all that has been made physically. But the question is whether they will “believe” what they know, or whether they will deny what they know and return to accepting what they believed before.

Once the Second Passover occurs, the first covenant will be abolished and the New Covenant will be implemented. For Christians, sin, the transgression of the law (1 John 3:4), will no longer be remembered (Heb 8:12). If Christians transgress the Sabbath, God will have mercy on their lawlessness and will not remember their transgression for as long as they believe the Lord … for as long as Christians who will have the Law written on their hearts do what they believe God requires of them, they will live as the physically circumcised nation lived when this nation grumbled against Moses at Marah, and then again in the wilderness of Sinai, and at Massah and Meribah. Ten times Israel tested the Lord, not obeying His voice (Num 14:22), and the tenth time was it! There would be no eleventh time; for with the tenth time that Israel did not obey the Lord’s voice, the Lord condemned the nation, except for Joshua and Caleb, to death in the wilderness because of the nation’s unbelief. Likewise, after the Second Passover liberation of Israel, the Lord will have mercy on Christian lawlessness until a particular day, the day of the Rebellion when the lawless one is revealed.

When the Son of Man is revealed or disrobed (Luke 17:30), Christians will have no covering for their sins except their obedience; no sacrifice will remain for them except their own lives. But as the Lord was merciful to physically circumcised Israel when the people went three days journey into the wilderness and found no water they could drink, the Lord will be merciful to Christians who, liberated from sin, continue in sin by continuing to ignore the Sabbath and keep Sunday instead: if the Second Passover occurs on the second Passover in 2011, Christians will journey toward entering into God’s rest for three days, Thursday, May 19th; Friday, May 20th; and Saturday, May 21st, before they encounter the bitter waters of Sunday observance, bitter to the Lord and to the oil and the wine, the processed fruits [disciples] of the Promised Land. In observing that Sunday, May 22nd, as the Lord’s day, liberated Christians show that despite the Law being written on hearts, these liberated Christians cling to the foundational structure of sin; i.e., rejection of Moses.

At Marah, “the people grumbled against Moses, saying, ‘What shall we drink?’ And he cried to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a log [tree], and he threw it into the water, and the water became sweet” (Ex 15:24–25).

After the people drank, the Lord made a statute and a rule by which He would test Israel: “‘If you will diligently listen to the voice of the Lord your God, and do that which is right in his eyes, and give ear to his commandments and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you that I put on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, your healer’” (Ex 15:26 emphasis added) … the primary “disease” of the Egyptians—the disease about which Egypt was preoccupied; the disease that consumed most of the nation’s resources—was death. And following the Second Passover, the Christian Church, all of it, will be liberated from indwelling sin and death, but Christians can take sin and by extension death back inside themselves by not doing what is right in the eyes of the Lord.

What commandments and statutes had the Lord given Israel three days journey into the wilderness? The Passover covenant—what other commandment had the Lord given Israel? But circumcised-of-heart Israel will have the Torah written of hearts. Liberated Christians will have the commandments; they will know what is right in the eyes of the Lord.

The cross doesn’t make Sunday observance “sweet” to the Lord once Christians are liberated from indwelling sin and death; for Sabbath observance will “mark” those who are of God throughout the 1260 days of the Affliction. Those who are unmarked or common to the world will not keep the Sabbath: they belong to the prince of this world, and even when liberated from servitude to disobedience, they will continue in sin as willing slaves rather than accept the mark of Sabbath observance.

Christ makes possessing eternal life sweet for those who believe the writings of Moses and hear the words of Christ Jesus. He gives living water (John 4:10). And the waters of Marah that are made sweet by the tree represent living water that heals a person from the disease of death.

Israel did not stay at Marah, the first of ten testings that resulted in the nation numbered in the census of the second year being condemned to death because of its unbelief. And following the Second Passover, Christians do not stay three days journey into the wilderness but continue on, grumbling against Moses and desirous to return to sin until they too have tested the patience of the Lord enough times that He sends over them a strong delusion so that they will “believe what is false, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth” (2 Thess 2:11–12)

Where the story of Christians after the Second Passover parts from the story of Israel after the first Passover is that 220 days after their liberation, the majority of the Christian Church chooses for themselves a leader other than Moses and Aaron, represented by the two witnesses, to lead them back into sin … when the twelve spies returned, ten of them brought to the people an evil report about the Promised Land (Num 13:31–33):

Then all the congregation raised a loud cry, and the people wept that night. And all the people of Israel grumbled against Moses and Aaron. The whole congregation said to them, “Would that we had died in the land of Egypt! Or would that we had died in this wilderness! Why is the Lord bringing us into this land, to fall by the sword? Our wives and our little ones will become a prey. Would it not be better for us to go back to Egypt?” And they said to one another, “Let us choose a leader and go back to Egypt.”

The Rebellion of the Christian Church at Christmas in our example year will have these rebels, as shadows and types of rebelling angels, choosing for themselves a leader to return then back into bondage to Sin, the third horseman that will make merchandise of both the early and main crop harvests of God. This leader will be the lawless one, the man of perdition, an angelic faced, chubby firebrand with a sweater. And the basis for an extremely bloody confrontation will have been laid.

About the day when the fifth seal is removed, John writes,

When he [the Lamb] opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the witness they had borne. They cried out with a loud voice, “O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you will judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” Then they were each given a white robe and told to rest a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brothers should be complete, who were to be killed as they themselves had been. (Rev 6:8–11 emphasis added)

A foreknown number of saints are to be killed after the fifth seal is removed, killed by the man of perdition and by lawless Christians who believe they do God a favor (John 16:2). So many saints are to be killed that the Lamb avenges their death:

When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood, and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale. The sky vanished like a scroll that is being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. Then the kings of the earth and the great ones and the generals and the rich and the powerful, and everyone, slave and free, hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains, calling to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb, for the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?” (Rev 6:12–17 emphasis added)

The lawless one is the man of perdition, a human being possessed by Satan, with Satan in this possessed person being the little horn that is different from the ten horns on the head of the fourth beast or king. The little horn is, thus, the conjoined man and Satan. His power shall be great, and “‘he shall cause fearful destruction’” (Dan 8:24). He shall understand riddles so he shall know he was identified even before he revealed himself through his advocacy for Christmas observance. In his anger, he shall go after Christian Sabbatarians. He shall make deceit proper and “‘without warning he shall destroy many”’ (v. 25), beginning when the fifth seal is removed on, in our example timeline, Julian day #2455920.5, Sunday, Christmas 2011.

When Trinitarians and Arians are filled with the divine breath of God, with the Torah written on hearts so that all Know the Lord, many will desire to serve the Lord and will serve the Lord, believing the writing of Moses and hearing the words of Christ. These liberated Christians will mark themselves with Sabbath observance, and many will be slain. So many Christian Sabbatarians will be slain by the man of perdition and by those rebelling Christians that follow this lawless one—that follow the conjoined man of perdition as the third of the angels that were cast down followed the anointed cherub, Lucifer, when iniquity was found in him—that the little horn becomes drunk on their blood.

Paul writes,

I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling; likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works. Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. (1 Tim 2:8–14 emphasis added)

Elsewhere Paul writes, “Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned” (Rom 5:12) … sin did not enter this world through Eve, whose disobedience was covered by her husband Adam’s obedience. Rather, sin entered this world when Adam no longer believed the Lord. So what Paul writes to Timothy addresses a problem other than sin.

Paul desires that men should pray to God without anger or quarreling, something that will not happen until the Body of Christ is resurrected from death at the Second Passover. He desires that women adorn themselves modestly, exercising self-control. But he prohibits a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man, why? Because Eve was deceived and became a transgressor—that is the reason given, but in using the example of Eve as a reason, Paul needed to better explain his reason.

Angelic sons of God are ministering spirits (Heb 1:14); whereas human sons of God will be heirs of the Most High God (Gal 4:4–7), not servants. Angelic sons of God occupy a helpmate relationship to human sons of God: they are as the woman is to the man. Thus, angelic sons of God who left their first habitation or position of authority and rebelled against the Most High are as Eve was. They were deceived by the anointed cherub in whom iniquity was found (Ezek 28:14–15); they were deceived by that old serpent, Satan the devil, as Eve was deceived by the serpent. Therefore, the chief among the rebelling angels would logically be metaphorically seen as a great prostitute.

Paul leaves unwritten part of his message to Timothy: when Christ Jesus is seen as a metaphoric slain Lamb and the seven churches as seven horns and the seven angels to these seven churches as seven eyes, then how things function becomes the basis for metaphorically naming these things. If both men and angels are to obey God as a wife is to obey her husband, then disobedience is sexual immorality. John writes,

Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great prostitute who is seated on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth have committed sexual immorality, and with the wine of whose sexual immorality the dwellers on earth have become drunk.” (Rev 17:1–2)

It is that old dragon, Satan the devil, who has deceived the whole world (Rev 12:9); who has caused the kings of the earth and all those who dwell on the earth to practice disobedience, or said metaphorically, to commit sexual immorality with demons. Thus, that old dragon is spiritually as Eve was physically in that this dragon was the transgressor … the dragon is the great whore that rides the seven headed king of Greece, with both the dragon and the king of Greece being represented by the “color” of gold and bronze, yellow when seen in heaven, red when cast to the earth as the sun shines red when it sets (when the setting sun’s long angle through the atmosphere filters out the blue portion of the spectrum) as its day has ended.



Catholic Christianity has been and remains the mother of Trinitarian Christians, but the Trinitarian Church will be virtually wiped out by Arians late in the 1260 day long Affliction as the spiritual king of the North rushes at the king of the South, representing Sin and the unexplainable triune deity the Universal Christianity worships. This king of the North, representing Death and the Arian Church, will overflow the mental typography ruled by this king of the South, except for landscapes represented by Edom, Moab, and the main part of the Ammonites. But all “lands” are delivered into the hand of the Son of Man when the single kingdom of this world is given to Him on the doubled day 1260. Dominion is taken from the four kings although the lives of the first three are extended for a season and time (Dan 7:11–12), so neither Trinitarians nor Arians will have dominion over human beings in the 1260 day long Endurance. Rather, only those human beings who keep the commandments and their faith in Jesus will live when the glorified Christ comes as the Messiah. All others will have marked themselves for death.

The chronological structure of the Book of Revelation is revealed by what John writes:

I, John, your brother and partner in J± 28\R,4[the Affliction] and $"F48,\ [Kingdom] and ßB@:@<±[Endurance] in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos on account of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. I was in B<,b:"J4 [spirit] ¦< [in] the Lord's day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet saying, “Write what you see in a book and send it to the seven churches, to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.” (Rev 1:9–11)

The chronology of John’s vision presents the 1260 day long Affliction first, followed by the doubled day 1260 when dominion over the kingdom of this world is taken from the four kings and the little horn and given to the Son of Man, followed by the 1260 day long Endurance. Chapters 20, 21, and 22 address the kingdom after the false prophet and the beast are thrown into the lake of fire and Satan is bound in the Abyss. Chapters 2 and 3 are interesting for they are not the entirety of the messages sent to the seven churches, but are the salutations that begin the common message about the Affliction, Kingdom, and Endurance. Thus, what’s seen in these salutations is that only Philadelphia keeps Jesus’ word [message] about the Endurance. Of the seven named churches, apparently only Philadelphia can read and understand the letter sent to it before the described events overtake these churches. So it isn’t to the other named churches or to the greater Christian Church or to the world that disciples should go to understand prophecy, specifically the vision John receives.

Today, the Christian Church, especially the Sabbatarian Churches of God, do not speak as one Body of Christ, but yip and yap as dogs in a pound as each disciple does what is right in his or her own eyes. This failure to speak as one Body has every disciple proving for him or herself if what is taught is correct. Instead of disciples screening those who would teach Israel by the criteria Paul established (2 Cor 11:7–15), these disciples become bogged down by what is being taught to such an extent that they do not know whom to believe. In attempting to be wise, they have become fools. In attempting to become wise as serpents while remaining innocent as doves, they have become the prey for every wolf, every coyote, every cat who claims to be sent by God to minister to “the lost,” those human beings who have never heard the gospel of Christ, whereas Jesus told His disciples not to go to Gentiles or to enter the towns of the Samaritans, but to go to the lost sheep of Israel (Matt 10:5–6), proclaiming that The Kingdom of the Heaven is at hand (v. 7). These disciples are to heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons (v. 8), but that isn’t what’s seen in Christendom. Disciples do not see Christians “‘clothed with power from on high’” (Luke 24:49) so these Christians are to stay in the heavenly city of Jerusalem until they clothed in power; until the Second Passover.

The lost sheep of the house of Israel are not in Tibetan monasteries, but are in the Christian Churches of North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia. They will be in the Jerusalem that is above following the Second Passover, and it’s to them that the disciples sent of Christ Jesus are to go now (before faithful disciples are clothed with power from in high) and after disciples are clothed in power so that they heal the sick and raise the dead.

What hinders endtime Christian Sabbatarians from staying in heavenly Jerusalem is the perceived need for these endtime disciples to prove or disprove every teaching of those who claim to have been sent by God: in trying to be like the Bereans, who “received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so” (Acts 17:11), endtime Sabbatarian Christians DO NOT receive the word with all eagerness, but refuse to accept any word contrary to what they already believe. They have become theological fossils of once living disciples.

The perceived need to prove or disprove every nonsensical reading of Scripture that uninspired would-be teachers of Israel have concocted prevents at least six of the seven named churches from understanding Daniel’s visions as well as John’s vision—and limits Philadelphia to having but little power. If these endtime disciples simply ignored those would-be teachers of Israel who do not work on the same terms as Paul worked, these disciples would end their own theological confusion for they would have only a few doctrines/teachings to prove or disprove. They could then really grow in grace and knowledge instead of growing in babbling confusion and heresy. For the Adversary is more subtle than people imagine: rather than trying to silence the endtime good news that must be, and will be proclaimed to all nations, he has encouraged his servants, many of them posing as Sabbatarian teachers of righteousness, to broadcast so much disinformation and differing gospels that disciples are lost in a fog of knowledge that has no up or down, left or right. But the Adversary’s ministers inevitably ask for support from the ones whom they teach, and they thereby reveal themselves as false apostles and deceitful workmen.

Of all Christians who are today born of God and who will be born of God at the Second Passover, only the Remnant keep the commandments and have the testimony of Jesus (which is the spirit of prophecy — Rev 19:10) at the end of the Affliction. Only this Remnant enters alive into the Endurance (Rev 12:17). Every other Christian Sabbatarian will be slain, and most of these faithful disciples will be slain between day 220 and day 580 of the Affliction, or in our example timeline that has the Second Passover occurring on the second Passover in 2011, between Christmas 2011 and the December solstice of 2012 [more precisely, between 25 December 2011 and 19 December 2012].

How many disciples will be slain? How many must be killed before enough blood is shed to cause drunkenness?

It is not possible to know how many Christians will believe the truth after they have been born of God and born filled with spirit, with the Torah written on their hearts. Hopefully, that number is “many.” But of this number, only a portion—a remnant—of those who understand prophecy and can thereby be witnesses to the third part of humankind (from Zech 13:9) in the Endurance as the two witnesses are witnesses to Christians in the Affliction; only a remnant of those Sabbatarian disciples who understand prophecy will physically live to see the opening of the sixth and seventh seals of the Scroll.

In order for the scarlet woman to be drunk on the blood of the saints, the number slain will have to be “many.” There truly will be cause for the Father and the Son to exercise vengeance upon the peoples, great and small, of this world (Rev 6:16–17) … the man of perdition will not be a Trinitarian Christian. He will not be the Pope, nor of the Roman Church. He will, instead, be of the cross shaped fourth beast, the king of the North. He will be of Death, the fourth horseman, rather than of Sin, the third horseman. And he will make war against Sin and Trinitarian Christendom all of his days; for he will blame the Western Church’s stance on “social justice” for God’s intervention in the affairs of humankind. He will blame Christian progressivism for the moral and cultural breakdown of Western societies. It is this moral collapse that, in his logic, caused God to take the lives of firstborns worldwide. He will not comprehend that he has become the mirror-image of the Antichrist; for he will make war against sin and thereby shed much blood, especially the blood of disciples who keep the Sabbath commandment. To him, the Sabbath will be Sunday, the day of the sun.

The man of perdition will be an Arian Christian who believes that Jesus Christ was created by the Father before the world was created by Christ. He will be of an American hybrid theology holding the doctrine that the immortal soul within a person is an angel. He will believe that the angel inside him is Christ; hence he will, with clear conscience, declare himself God when the time comes. And working with the false prophet, the first horseman, he will cause Muslims to become Arian Christians, for they will convert under the threat of death or they will truly die, with their blood mingled with the blood of unconverted Jews as he brings the illusion of peace to the Middle East.

The amount of blood that this man of perdition sheds or causes to be shed will only be exceeded by the amount shed by God at the Second Passover and in Sixth Trumpet Plague; for once the Affliction begins, a fourth of humankind (one-sixth of the world’s present population) will be delivered into the hand of Death and the little horn on this horseman’s head (Rev 6:8).

When Sin and Death are separated by the liberation of the Christian Church from indwelling sin and death, Sin loses its dominion over the fleshly bodies of Christians, regardless of the denomination in which these Christians presently dwell. But the flesh remains subject to Death. And while Christians who do not return to Sin will not die from internal causes, they are certainly subject to martyrdom as their blood is mingled with that of Muslim and Jew.

The little horn that is different from the ten horns on the head of Death when the little horn emerges—different because this little horn is Satan possessing a human being—will attempt to change times and the law throughout the Affliction: this little horn will attempt to impose a “moral” social order, a social order not based on the appetites of the belly and the loins, how the first king of the bronze Greek kingdom ruled the earth, with these appetites giving rise to sin in every person. The little horn will try to erase from the face of this earth all who keep the Sabbath, and to resist the little horn’s social order, a social order patterned after the American Revolution which the man of perdition really doesn’t understand, this man of perdition will use the Adversary’s power to compel worship of God on the first day after the Sabbath [J±:4 Jä< F"$VJT< — from John 20:1 & Acts 20:7 … both John and Luke reckoned the days of the week by the Sabbath].

Again, for Christians the first day of the week is not the Sabbath, but J±:4 Jä< F"$VJT< (the one after the Sabbath).

When every Christian is truly born of God and born filled with spirit, Roman Catholics will have no indwelling sin in them. Rather, they will have the Law [Torah] written on their hearts and placed in their minds; they will want to keep the commandments, including the Sabbath commandment. Whether they keep the commandments is another story, but when sin—the transgression of the commandments (1 John 3:4)—is not remembered and God is merciful toward their iniquities (Heb 8:12), their failure to keep the Sabbath is not what will condemn them. Rather, their refusal to love the truth, to seek the truth, to live by what is true will cause them to believe what is not true, and God will send a strong delusion over them so that they can never believe the truth because they took pleasure in unrighteousness … their blood will be shed by God at Armageddon, not by the man of perdition in the Affliction. But the man of perdition will have culpability in the shedding of their blood.

The Rebellion against God in our example timeline that has the Second Passover occurring on the second Passover in 2011, will occur on Christmas (Julian day #2455920.5), and will come about not because Christians “desire” to return to sin, but because these rebelling Christians do not love the truth, and since their liberation, have not loved the truth enough to seek it and believe it even though it is widely circulated. The present indoctrination of Christians, whether by the Roman Church or by the Evangelical Church or by Latter Day Saints, is so deep and thorough that even when these Christians are filled with spirit and have the Torah written on hearts, most will not be able to overcome their present core beliefs about God and about what He expects of them. If the Christian is a Trinitarian, even after being born of God this Christian will continue to assign personhood to the breath [B<,Ø:"] of God and thereby blaspheme the Father and the Son, which will be forgiven them. However, when this Trinitarian defiles him or herself through Christmas observance, this Trinitarian will commit blasphemy against the spirit which will not be forgiven.

In an ironic non-coincidence, Christmas 2011 falls on Sunday, an alignment the man of perdition will use to claim that Providence has confirmed the importance of observing both Sunday as the Sabbath and this profaned invincible day of the sun.

The majority of both Arian and Trinitarian Christians will rebel against God 220 days after the Second Passover liberation of Israel, but Trinitarian Christians will within a short while recognize the man of perdition as false—and the world will see war between the demonic king of the South and king of the North that is fought in the Abyss and fought here on earth through their surrogates, the Trinitarian and the Arian Christian Churches, both of which will observe Sunday as the Sabbath, thereby leaving Sabbatarian Christians [Binitarians] caught between these two warring giants. Sabbatarian Christians will be pursued and killed by both Arians and Trinitarians once the fifth seal on the Scroll is removed.



At sunrise and sunset, the light of the sun passes through the earth’s atmosphere at a long angle … air molecules and small dust particles scatter the light rays, with the amount of scattering determined by the wavelength of the light and the size of the particles, with the blue and violet portions of the spectrum (i.e., the short wavelength portion of the spectrum) scattered much more than is the longer red portion of the spectrum. More atmosphere means more scattering and means less of the short wavelength portion of the spectrum is seen. So when the sun is low at or below the horizon, all of the blue and violet light is scattered out of a person’s line of sight. When the sun remains slightly above the horizon, the colors yellow, orange, and red are visible, but when the sun drops to the horizon the sun appears red because only the longest wavelength of the visible spectrum makes it through the long path that the sun’s light must take to the eye. And when the sun is just below the horizon, observed light is reflected off the curvature of the atmosphere thereby creating an even longer path for this light to take before it is seen, thus causing all objects to appear red—the photographed “red” rim rocks of the American Southwest are more gray than red until a while after sunset.

Color comes from light, either emitted or reflected. The sun emits light; gold and bronze reflect light.

Light casts no shadow: objects or entities that block the light cast shadows. A head of gold will block the light; likewise a belly and loins of bronze blocks the light and casts a shadow in one less dimension than the bronze.

When encountering the “metals” of Nebuchadnezzar’s vision (Dan chap 2), disciples have used their metallic characteristics and cultural values to create a hierarchy going from soft but with high monetary worth [gold] to strong but of little monetary worth [iron]. But this hierarchy ignores their color—and when God is light, this metallic-worth hierarchy neglects the “red” color of great dragon [*DV6T<], with seven heads and ten horns (Rev 12:3) and of the scarlet beast with seven heads and ten horns (Rev 17:3, 7) … when light enters consideration, red represents the maximum distance an entity can get from the source of the light: the non-descript rocks of the Intermountain West become “red” and interesting a half hour after sunset; bathed in pink light at sunrise, snow-covered Mt. McKinley and Mt. Foraker become “white” as the sun rises higher in the sky.

The humanoid image seen by King Nebuchadnezzar and again by Daniel was bi-colored: yellow head, white arms and chest, yellow belly and loins, white knees and lower legs, feet, and toes … silver and iron are white metals whereas gold and copper alloys are yellow metals. Soft or miry clay is gray or tan, tints of white or yellow. And it is the colors of these metals that reflect how far the entities are from God. It is the “gold” color of the head of gold that discloses distance from but submission to God, and it is the “red” color of the dragon that discloses dominion over living creatures has been taken from the dragon (i.e., it is past sunset for the dragon).

The spiritual king of Greece is also bi-colored before dominion is taken from these four kings that form a single federated or amalgamated king. They are yellow and white, bronze and iron, the loins and legs of the image Nebuchadnezzar saw. The little horn on the head of the king of the North is bi-colored, yellow and white, (the Adversary possessing a Christian), and the little horn and the king of the North are, together, bi-colored (gold and iron). But after dominion is taken from these four kings that have seven heads, they appear red when they are ridden by the little horn, seen as the whore adorned in scarlet and purple, with this woman identified as “‘Babylon the great, mother of prostitutes and of the earth’s abominations’” (Rev 17:5).

Prophecy pundits usually read John’s scarlet [6`664<@<] beast [20D\@<] of Revelation chapter 17 as the red [BLDDÎH] dragon [*DV6T<] of chapter twelve because both have seven heads and ten horns, but this reading is problematic for no one rides or can ride this dragon that drags a third part of the stars down from heaven (Rev 12:4); no one rides the little horn that threw to the ground some of the stars (Dan 8:10). This dragon is not the human-appearing image that Nebuchadnezzar sees in vision, but is the reigning demonic hierarchy before the great king of the king of Greece is suddenly broken at the Second Passover. Its time has passed when the woman [Israel] clothed with the sun [emitting, not reflecting light] appears, and its seven heads are the anointed cherub in whom iniquity was found (Ezek 28:14–15), the kings of Persia (Dan 10:13), and the king of Greece, the Adversary’s firstborn son. The angel who brings Daniel knowledge of what is written in the Book of Truth tells Daniel of five kings of Persia (Dan 11:1–2), with these human kings forming the shadow and type of five spiritual kings. So for a disciple to understand the dragon standing before the woman about to give birth, the disciple needs to understand the riddle of yellow and white (gold and silver) producing yellow and white (bronze and iron) as a man produces sons through sexual intercourse with a woman … without the spiritual princes of Persia, the Adversary would have no firstborn son [the great horn or first king of the king of Greece] to be suddenly broken at the Second Passover. Nor would the Adversary have the federated kings that are the four horns that sprout from the base of the broken first horn of the king of Greece.

When the Adversary as the little horn possesses the man of perdition, he produces rebellion in Christians who now become his seed (1 John 3:8, 10). This relationship would have the demonic kings of Persia functioning as the “Christian” man of perdition functions.
