Chapter 7, Part 4 (of 4)

PROPHESY AGAINST THE NATIONS
Chapter 7: Countdown to Christ’s Coming – Part 4 (of 4)

The Two Witnesses
The 7th and last end-time prophetic period of 1,260 days will be the period when God gives His two end-time witnesses the primary work that they have been prophesied to fulfill. Throughout the entirety of the 5th and 6th prophetic end-time periods, these two individuals have been the focus of much ridicule, hatred, mockery and scorn, and during each of these prophetic periods, these two will have fulfilled a specific kind of witness, yet their major witness is during the final 1,260 day period.

“And I [Almighty God] will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth” (Rev. 11:3).

Wearing sackcloth is used to symbolize the practice of walking humbly before God. This verse is describing how God’s two end-time witnesses are clothed in humility as they carry out the commission God has given them. Humility is the opposite of pride, and God has prepared both of these individuals to be able to accomplish the work that is before them in a manner that reflects true justice, mercy, and active living faith. The purpose for the power God gives to these two is to humble others who are filled with pride and who are refusing to listen to God.

These two witnesses will exercise that power they are given according to their own will, according to what they themselves determine to use against others for the purpose of stripping them of their pride, just like what was done against Egypt and Pharaoh in the days of Moses.

Although these two are given such great power to use as they will, as they choose, they will not be lifted up in pride because of it. Instead, the use of that power will be reflected in humility because they fully understand that it is from God as a matter of His purpose being worked out, and that it is by His great power such things are accomplished, and no one else’s. These two witnesses understand, mightily so, that all that is taking place is about what God is doing to humble this earth in order to establish His Son as King of kings.

This matter of them wearing sackcloth—of being clothed in humility—is simply the result of God molding and fashioning them into such a state through all that they have had to experience in the previous seven years of those two end-time prophetic periods before this (the 5th and 6th 1,260 days). It is within those periods of time that these two have been ridiculed, mocked, hated, and later trampled upon that they have learned humility on a strong spiritual plane.

Due to what these two leaders of God’s Church experienced, the Church also experienced much of the same thing, and they also learned greater humility of spirit in their service toward God, as they have shared in the same manner of attacks from others. All that transpired through those two prophetic end-time periods worked in a very powerful way to create far greater spiritual strength within God’s people. It worked powerfully within them to prepare them for Christ’s coming.

It states in the verse just quoted that these two “will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days.” Much of this fulfillment to prophesy is because of what is written in this book and the one before it. This book will have been completed and offered to the world early in the final 7th end-time prophetic period of 1,260 days. Prophecy that has been recorded in this book and in the last book, 2008—God’s Final Witness, will come to pass as it has been written. This will be the primary manner by which this verse is fulfilled because it is during this final period that most all of those prophecies become fulfilled.

Yet there is much more that is stated about what these two witnesses will be involved in doing within this last prophetic end-time period.

“These are the two olive trees and the two lamp stands standing [set, established] before the God of the earth” (Rev. 11:4).

Although God has not yet revealed the full extent of the meaning contained in this verse, nevertheless, it is of incredible importance to Him. This states that these are the two lamp stands and the two olive trees, which are spoken of in the Book of Zechariah concerning God’s two anointed ones, whom He will give of His great power to fulfill many prophetic events that will lead up to Christ’s coming. God gave this prophecy to Zechariah a few hundred years before Christ was born. So indeed, the work these two are given to do is important to God and His purpose for the end-time.

The verses that follow describe what God has set or established that they should do before Him upon the earth.

“If anyone will hurt them, fire will proceed out of their mouth and devour their enemies, and if anyone will hurt them, they must in this manner be killed” (Rev. 11:5).

God reveals that some will so hate these two witnesses that they will try to do them harm and even attempt to kill them. However, God makes it clear that these two will not die until God allows it. The fire that is described as proceeding out of their mouth is symbolic of the power they are given to pronounce any consuming judgment upon any who would desire or attempt to harm them.

“They have power to shut the heavens so that it does not rain in the days of their prophecy, and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they will” (Rev. 11:6).

God will give His two witnesses power to cause devastating destruction from whatever plagues they determine, according to their own judgment. This means they will decide when, where, what kind, and how long specific plagues will strike and when plagues should be repeated. Some of these plagues that are pronounced will be coupled with events outlined within some of the Seven Thunders.

There is still more that is stated about these two end-time witnesses whom God refers to as His prophets. For any who desire to read about this in the Bible, it is in the verses that follow those that have just been quoted in Revelation 11.

Book Fulfills A Prophecy
As with the previous books, this one will also go out to most of the nations of the world, to people of several different languages. Earlier in this chapter, I stated that my wife told me I needed to read about a prophecy that this book will fulfill. Once it is complete, this book does fulfill that prophecy.

This specific book will be advertised and translated into more languages than before. This is for the purpose of seeking to reach out to millions more giving greater potential for many more people to be saved.

Yet there are several nations and people of different languages who have no desire whatsoever to read such a book as this, no matter what is stated in it or how bad the world becomes. God knows who those people are and this is not being made directly available to them, although they have been forewarned.

Each of you who has now read this book and come to this very point needs to face the reality that you and you alone are at the most important juncture of your life. It is the time that only you can now choose how you are going to live from this moment forward. It is one of either holding onto your old way—your own ways—or of embracing what God has told you throughout this book. One way or the other, life cannot simply continue on for you as it has in the past. The world is going through major change, and compared to the population of the world right now, far fewer will live on into the new millennial age God is going to establish.

God is currently bringing people to the greatest crossroads of their lives where major decisions have to be made concerning how each person will choose to live the rest of their life. It will either be one of listening to God and changing their life to be in agreement with Him and His ways or it will be to refuse what He is offering.

Only you, and you alone, can make that choice for your life. That responsibility belongs to no one else.

If someone has the desire to live on into God’s new age, and to live His way of life in it, then they must change. No one can continue to live as they have been. No one can continue to hold on to their false religious and/or immoral practices, but instead must reject them.

The entire reason the world is going through end-time catastrophic events is because mankind has consistently lived disobediently toward God for 6,000 years, and it has now come to the time, because of the advancement of technology, that it is about to annihilate itself.

Disobedience to God’s ways only brings suffering, sorrow, and evil in life. God is bringing an end to that, as He brings an end to mankind’s self-rule, rebellion, and prideful selfish living that has been the cause of such suffering and sorrow throughout the millennia.

It is because of mankind’s selfish and pride-filled ways that God is now intervening to end that self-rule and to establish His government as His Kingdom is established under Jesus Christ who will reign over every nation on earth. Not only is God going to establish His government to reign over every nation, He is also going to establish His one true Church throughout all the earth. It will be the only Church and religious practice that is allowed to exist on earth. Once the Millennium is established, there will be no more practice of Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, traditional Christianity, or any other false practices in religion, but only that which is true and originates from God’s one true Church.

Whether people like that or not, that is what is happening. Those who do not like it are among those most likely to die before Jesus Christ returns. Those who do live through what is coming and then begin to practice their old ways in the Millennium will not escape death. God reveals they too will soon come to an end if they do not quickly respond to what God is establishing after 6,000 years of mankind’s miserable governments, religions, and ways that have caused such incredible suffering throughout the ages.

By the time the Millennium is established, once Jesus Christ and the 144,000 stand upon this earth once more, over half of the world’s population will have been destroyed. Knowing the stubbornness, rebelliousness, selfishness, and pride of human nature, that number will likely be far higher. If need be, God can reduce the earth’s population to a few million or even a few hundred thousand before the Millennium is established. That is fully up to the different nations, rulers, and people that live in this final end-time.

The full amount of destruction and death that will occur is fully dependent on how people throughout the world respond to God and whether they will begin to listen to Him or not. That is where you are at this very moment. You alone can decide whether or not you are going to embrace God’s ways that lead to selflessness rather than selfishness, to the way of give and love rather than the way of get, hatred, prejudice, and jealousy. God’s way, and His way alone, is the only thing that can produce true unity, caring, friendship, peace, and genuine love toward fellow mankind. The ways of man have never produced such a thing, and they cannot. The ways of mankind produce just the opposite of God’s way.

Right now you are at a place in your life where you must choose whether you are going to now follow God’s way or continue on with your own. This is not something you can simply put off deciding. That time is now, and it is a matter of whether each person will choose to listen to God or not. It is very much like what God told Israel when He had led them out of captivity in Egypt. God gave to them His way of life that they should live by and then said to them, “This day I have set before you life and death.” Then He revealed His great desire toward them, just as He does for each of you now, and He said, “Choose life!” That choice was left in their own hands. The result of life or death was fully within the power of each individual’s choice.

For the Israelites at that time, this was not a matter of immediate death that would be executed upon them. However, at this time it is different. Everyone now lives in a time of great death and destruction on this earth, and only God can give the kind of intervention that can protect and save people from that destruction and death, so that they can live on into the Millennium.

So indeed, this book fulfills a prophecy that reveals the very purpose for why it was written. It is also the reason for the title of this book. God’s desire is that people will receive the words of this book and listen to what He has revealed to them, so that many more might be saved and have opportunity to live on into the Millennium that is about to be established.

It is for this very reason that God has addressed specific nations and their leaders, as leaders have the greatest responsibility and potential ability to influence others to at least listen to those things written here, as was done by the king of Nineveh in the days of Jonah. So God gave charge that this book be written to explain why He has granted seven more years to the world so that many more have the potential for being saved through this final great world war and the catastrophic events that have finally come to be fulfilled on the earth.

This book will end with the prophetic verse referred to that this book fulfills. Although this was stated to John, the charge was not his to fulfill. It was for John’s counterpart, who is God’s prophet, apostle, and end-time witness. This verse was stated prophetically to John’s counterpart to fulfill by writing this book. Although the previous book, 2008—God’s Final Witness, was also sent out to most of the nations of the world, and in several languages to those people and their leaders, God’s purpose for this book is that a stronger message be sent out again, one last time.

The angel said to me, “You must prophesy again against [about, toward] many peoples, nations, languages, and rulers” (Revelation 10:11).

Chapter 7, Part 3 (of 4)

PROPHESY AGAINST THE NATIONS
Chapter 7: Countdown to Christ’s Coming – Part 3 (of 4)

Two Great Signs
The countdown for Christ’s coming, beginning from the Apostasy to 2019, covers a period of nearly twenty-four and one-half years. The first part of this chapter covered much of the numerical breakdown that contains great prophetic meaning in that complete count. Yet even beyond this precise and ordered counting, God gave two great signs to His Church that would serve to mark Christ’s coming: one at the beginning and one at the end of this countdown. The first sign concerned the Apostasy, which served as a sign for the beginning of the countdown to Christ’s return.

The events surrounding the Apostasy cover many years and were mostly a result of the first four Seals of Revelation that are often referred to as the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. These events were not about the world, as so many have supposed, but they concerned God’s Church and a prophesied rebellion that would occur at the end-time. That Apostasy was a great falling away from God’s truth that He had given His own Church and is symbolized by these four horsemen.

The second and last sign God gave to His Church was a revelation of God’s two end-time witnesses and the work they would fulfill that would lead up to the end of the countdown to Christ’s return. The two witnesses would be raised up within God’s Church and their work would be a sign for the completion of the end-time.

Although the Church had understood for decades that the period for the work of the two witnesses leading up to Christ’s coming would last for 1,260 days, the Church did not know that their work would actually cover three of these prophetic end-time periods of 1,260 days and not just one.

The work these two witnesses fulfill is outlined in the Book of Revelation. It was not until this final chapter that God revealed that the writing of this book is actually the focus and primary means through which one of these verses will become fulfilled.

After writing each chapter of this book, it was my practice to send it into the Church for editing to have it double-checked for grammar, spelling, and clarity. If something I had written was not completely clear to those who were editing it, then I could work on that portion to make it clearer. Although, there are still some things that will not be clear until later, as they are prophetic in nature and are not immediately understood. When writing this last chapter, I sent in the first half that covered the various combinations of counting that God had revealed in the overall count to Christ’s coming. There was one last section that I knew I needed to write—this section. However, I was not certain what needed to be covered in order to complete this book.

Only after about three weeks had passed did I then begin to write this last section that is entitled, “Two Great Signs.” My wife, who is the other end-time witness, was also reading the book and giving me feedback. After reading the book up to this point, she told me that I needed to read a specific verse in Revelation that she believed this book was fulfilling. Upon reading that verse, it became clear that it was indeed about what had just been written and that it would serve to be the primary means through which that verse would become fulfilled.

The remainder of this book will outline those events which God has been fulfilling and will continue to fulfill through His two witnesses. Knowledge and understanding of these two witnesses will help people to better understand events that will occur right up to Christ’s coming.

The first part of this chapter focused on the actual breakdown of the counting and the deep meaning contained in the way God established those numeric multiples that lead to His Son’s return. Those numerical combinations reveal that it is all a matter of God’s design and that only God could fulfill such a thing. This final section reveals some of the prophetic fulfillment and work that God will accomplish through His two witnesses that will finish the work that is involved in the last of this countdown to Christ’s return.

There are two chapters in the Book of Revelation that outline the work that God purposed through His two witnesses that He had John record nearly 2,000 years ago. Those chapters are going to be explained as they apply to events that have already taken place and events that are about to begin to take place which will bring an end to the end-time. Those events that will yet be accomplished through the two witnesses are astounding, and they will happen within the same period of time that catastrophic end-time events and WWIII occur.

The Seven Thunders
This story begins in Revelation 10 where John wrote something unique concerning the Seven Thunders, and although he heard what these thunders were, he was told that he was not to record them. It is because they were not to be revealed until the end-time, as God’s purpose was that this should be revealed through the end-time witness who is John’s counterpart. Both John and this witness have been the only two in the history of the Church to whom God uniquely gave each to be both an apostle and a prophet.

The story that leads into the introduction of God’s two witnesses begins by John seeing an angel coming down from heaven crying aloud the Seven Thunders.

“He [the angel] had a little book open in his hand, and he set his right foot on the sea and his left on the land, and cried with a loud voice like a lion roaring. When he cried out, seven thunders uttered their voices. Now when the seven thunders uttered their voices, I was about to write [what had been uttered], but I heard a voice from heaven saying to me to seal up the things which the seven thunders uttered, and do not write them” (Revelation 10:2-4).

This description that John gives of a little book is somewhat obscure because of how this is translated into today’s languages. It states that the angel had a little book or booklet, and this generally conjures up something different in the mind, as if this was a literal small book. However, it was not a book at all, but a very small scroll which John was later told that he was to eat. This little scroll contained what had been uttered by the angel, which was the Seven Thunders.

“Then the voice which I heard from heaven spoke to me again and said, ‘Go, take the little book [scroll] which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and the earth.’ So I went to the angel and said to him, ‘Give me the little book.’ And he said to me, ‘Take and eat it, and it will make your stomach bitter, but it will be as sweet as honey in your mouth.’ Then I took the little book out of the angel’s hand and ate it, and it was sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it, my stomach became bitter” (Rev. 10:8-10).

John is describing how he ate this little scroll and how it affected him physically, but this simply pictured what would later be fulfilled on a spiritual plane by John’s counterpart at the end time.

When writing the book, 2008—God’s Final Witness, it was given to me to reveal those Seven Thunders. Indeed the experience of being given this to fulfill was inspiring and exciting, especially when understanding that these things would help lead vast numbers of people to change and repent so that they could have opportunity to live on into the Millennium. This most certainly could be likened to eating something that tasted sweet.

However, once these things had been written and published, the resulting experience of scorn, ridicule, hatred, and mocking that was received from nearly all who read it was bitter. Although that is the normal response of mankind to those things God has given to His prophets through time, it is another thing to experience such hatred and evil from others. It is bitter.

The height of the ridicule, hatred, and mocking—the bitterness—was experienced throughout the time of the 5th prophetic period of 1,260 days. This book went out into the world in a volume that God accounted as a sufficient number to fulfill an end-time witness of mankind’s normal response to Him. That was made manifest by their response toward whom God had given to write the book, to whom He had sent into the world. This book was received by a few million people in over 170 nations and sent out in seven different languages. Not only had these Seven Thunders been covered in that book, but the Seven Trumpets, Seven Last Plagues, and the catastrophic events they reveal were addressed as well.

Some who read this book wondered if these things might possibly come to pass, but they really didn’t believe them. As the year 2012 came along, the bitterness grew as people responded with even greater anger, mocking, and contempt for what had been written. Yet all these events will still occur, just seven years later, but now with some changes because of what God is mercifully offering mankind, if they will listen.

Measuring the Temple
After John gave the account of the Seven Thunders, he then began to speak about certain events that were to take place in the midst of the last three prophetic end-time periods. This 6th period of time was about God’s Church, and it covered a time from Pentecost 2012 through the 7th of November 2015.

“Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod, and the angel stood and said, ‘Rise and measure the temple of God [the Church], and the altar, and those who worship there’” (Rev. 11:1).

This period of time served as the final preparation period for God’s Church to be made fully ready for the coming of Christ. This period is highlighted by a final cleansing of the temple of God (God’s Church), as well as a time for the final strengthening, teaching, and molding of God’s people so that they could be made to stand strong throughout the final end-time tribulation, and be fully readied for the coming of the head of the Church—Jesus Christ. God is going to have a refined, spiritually strong, and faithful Church made ready to meet Christ once he returns.

This final refining meant that the Church was to be brought up to the measure of the stature God intended His people should have by the time His Son arrives. However, this also meant that those who were not yielding and not being faithful to their calling would be removed from the Church.

“But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the gentiles, and they will tread the holy city [the Church—spiritual Jerusalem] underfoot for forty-two months” (Rev. 11:2).

Those who were “outside the temple” is speaking of those who gave the appearance of being within the environment of the fellowship of the Church, but who were not yielding to the calling they had received. These were not being faithful to the truths of God—to God. During this period, these people were not being worked with by God nor being brought up to the measure of the fullness that God required of His people, and therefore, they were not to be measured as part of the temple.

These people are described as being rejected in the measurement of the temple, as they are in the area of the court. In other words, they gave the appearance that they were part of the Church, but they did not practice true worship of God within the temple. Being within the court would reveal that they were not part of the Church and were living falsely before God and before those who were actually in the Church. So the instruction was to keep them separated from the temple, as they were not to be measured as part of it. Instead, they were to be revealed for where they truly were, which is within the court—within the environment of the Church—but not in the temple, not in the Church. By only being in the court, they were actually with the gentiles (a term used for unbelievers). These were rejected by God and removed in one way or another from the appearance of being part of God’s Church.

This is indeed what happened during that period of time, and at the time of this writing, there are now only a couple of months remaining in this period for measuring the temple. Once that is complete, then the world will enter into the 7th and last end-time period of 1,260 days before Christ’s coming. Within the environment of the Church, God has been removing members who have been unfaithful. In that group there have been quite a few in the ministry that have been removed as well, including the removal of several senior ministers and even one evangelist.

This period has not only included a great cleansing of the Church, but those who have remained faithful have been going through a measuring process of being far more fully trained, strengthened, and made ready for Christ’s coming. During this time, the Church has drawn closer together spiritually with one another and with God than at any other time within the history of the last several hundred years of God’s Church. Before this book is published, the Church will have been made fully ready for the coming of their High Priest, Passover, and elder brother—Jesus Christ.

42 Months
There is one more prophetic fulfillment that took place during this 6th prophetic end-time period that is referred to in these verses. This first and foremost is about what would happen to God’s two end-time witnesses within this period of time, and as a result, it would also be experienced by the Church.

The last verse that was quoted about this period gave instruction not to measure those who were in the court outside the temple (the false worshippers), but to instead give them over to the gentiles (unbelievers). Then the last part of the verse continues by making reference to what many of these gentiles would do during this period. This needs to be understood in the context that the gentiles now included those who were no longer to be measured as part of the temple, as they were cast out from the Church. It states of these gentiles, “…and they will tread the holy city [God’s Church] underfoot for forty-two months” (Rev. 11:2).

This is the time that the gentiles, and especially those who were not measured as part of the Church, had the greatest ability to trample upon and attack the Church of God, and primarily, its leadership. This is also a time that Satan and the demonic world worked their hardest to attack God’s people, which was largely accomplished by working to adversely influence those who were referred to in this verse as the gentiles.

Although the Church may have outwardly appeared to these gentiles to be in one of its weakest states ever, it was actually a time when God was making it to stand in one of its strongest states ever, as people were being strengthened spiritually and receiving final training and preparation for Christ’s coming. The attacks from others actually worked to enhance this strengthening process.

To the gentiles referenced here, the Church appeared to be at its weakest point when a judge sentenced God’s apostle and end-time prophet to 42 months of a federal sentence for attempting to evade payment of taxes. Although a trial by jury gave a guilty verdict, that did not change what was true about God’s servants and God’s Church. This 6th period of the end-time included events surrounding that trial, the sentencing, home confinement and imprisonment. These events are all partially or completely included in this actual prophetic 42 month period (1,260 days). It did not go unnoticed that the sentence given God’s prophet was 42 months, although that period for the actual fulfillment of the sentence did not fully fit within this 6th period, all the events concerning matters of the aftermath of a trial, sentencing, and most of that confinement did fulfill that prophecy of 42 months.

As mentioned, this entire period of the gentiles trampling upon God’s Church did not weaken the Church, it actually worked to do just the opposite. It strengthened the resolve, faith, and spiritual conviction of God’s people. All this, again, simply served God’s greater purpose for molding and fashioning a stronger Church, along with preparing His two end-time witnesses to become thoroughly equipped so that they could more perfectly accomplish what was ahead of them during the final 7th prophetic period.

Chapter 7, Part 2 (of 4)

PROPHESY AGAINST THE NATIONS
Chapter 7: Countdown to Christ’s Coming – Part 2

Second Use of 70
This total period of 6,370 days contains God’s indelible and undeniable handprint. However, God did not stop at simply giving a period of time that validated Christ’s coming by the use of a literal 70 weeks prophecy. God also revealed the importance of the 1,260-day time cycles that identify end-time prophetic periods. This period of time was mentioned earlier showing how it is described in different ways, yet is always used in the context of specific end-time prophetic periods that last 1,260 days.

There is another number that comes into play in this example of the total time period from the Apostasy to the Pentecost of 2012. It is the number 5. This is a number that is often used in reference to the ways of man or of mankind. It was also mentioned earlier that if 2012 had remained the date for Christ’s coming that the devastation and vast death toll around the world would have been exceedingly greater. With that first date for Christ’s coming, mankind had already been judged and the execution of that judgment would have been far more severe than if it could be moved to 2019.

In this number of 6,370 days, there are 5 equivalent periods of 1,260 days. God revealed two very important and specific end-time prophetic periods of 1,260 days within the countdown from the Apostasy to the first date of Christ’s coming. The first was from the date of the Apostasy (December 17, 1994) to Pentecost of 1998 (May 30, 1998).

The second specific end-time prophetic period of 1,260 days that God revealed to be of great significance is what was seen at that time as the final period leading up to Christ’s coming. It began when the Seven Trumpets of the Seventh Seal were blown (December 14, 2008); 1,260 days later was May 27, 2012 (Pentecost).

God has not revealed what significance or meaning there may be in the other three periods of 1,260 days that lie in between that first and fifth period, or even if there is any significant meaning in them other than the fact that they add great meaning for the total being 5 periods of time. The total of those five periods of 1,260 days is 6,300 days. That leaves 70 days remaining (from 6,370). This too is not a matter of chance, but of design, and signifies God’s purpose—that mankind had been judged and that Christ could return on the Pentecost of 2012, if time was to remain cut short. However, it has already been shown that God’s greater desire was that Christ should return on the Pentecost of 2019.

Beyond 2012
After the Church had moved beyond 2012, God finally began to reveal that the countdown for Christ’s coming had been extended by exactly 7 more years, from Pentecost of 2012 to Pentecost of 2019. It was revealed that His purpose for doing so was to create a greater transformation in those who were in His Church so that they would be prepared to accomplish an even greater work in the end-time that remained.

Christ returning in 2019 gave the Church a new focus. God could now work to create far greater potential for those of the Church that had been scattered after the Apostasy to be saved into the Millennium. This later date also made way for a vastly greater and more complex work to be accomplished whereby a far greater potential could exist to deliver hundreds of millions more people into the Millennium.

This period of additional time revealed another remarkable total number of days that contained even greater meaning. This could be described as an extended deeper meaning to Christ’s coming. This change from 2012 to 2019 added another 2,570 days to the countdown for Christ’s coming. This too is awesomely significant, as this now gave the addition of two more very specific prophetic end-time periods of 1,260 days to that overall count.

Within this extension to Christ’s coming, the first of these two new periods is from May 27, 2012 to November 7, 2015. God revealed early on that this first additional period of 1,260 days was the 42 months mentioned in Revelation 11 that is about the “measuring of the temple” of God that would occur within that period of time, which is about the final preparation of God’s Church for the final work leading up to Christ’s coming.

This second additional end-time period of 1,260 days runs from the 8th of November 2015 to the 20th of April 2019. This count concludes on the weekly Sabbath that is in the midst of the first Holy Day season of that year, the Feast of Unleavened Bread. This period is now recognized as the time for God’s two witnesses to complete the physical fulfillment of their witness to the world. Revelation 11:3-6 reveals that for a period of 1,260 days God will send his two end-time witnesses to prophesy with power throughout this time. Much of that witness and the power given to it is the writing that is contained in this very book. Toward the end of this period of time, they will be able to shut up the heavens so it will not rain wherever and for however long they say. They will strike the earth with plagues as often as they choose. Much of what is fulfilled during this period will have to do with the Thunders of Revelation that will be more completely fulfilled by those things they proclaim.

Within this extension of seven more years, there was then this addition of two more end-time periods of 1,260 days to the overall existing count for Christ’s coming. The five 1,260 day periods that occurred before 2012, along with these two additional ones, now give 7 complete end-time periods of 1,260 days. Again, there is great significance in that number, as the number 7 is used for completeness in God’s plan. The week is complete with the 7th day Sabbath. The annual Holy Days are 7 in number and they give the complete plan of God for mankind. God has given 7 one thousand year periods (7,000 years) for mankind to be able to live out the first life He has given them.

Yet there is another period in all this that also needs to be addressed. The inclusion of two more periods of 1,260 days that were added beyond 2012 give a total of 2,520 more days for the countdown to Christ’s coming. However, from the 27th of May 2012 to Pentecost on the 9th of June 2019, there is a total of 2,570 days. This number contains an additional 50 days that remain beyond these two final prophetic periods.

That 50-day period has already been mentioned. It is the time when God begins to pour out the Seven Last Plagues, which will lead to Christ coming to a world that has been humbled and ready to listen to him. As it has been stated, the day when his coming will be manifested in the atmosphere above the earth is the 21st of April 2019. It appears that this manifestation will be at the moment that the Wave Sheaf would have been waved before God on that day, which was in the midst of the Holy Day period of the Feast of Unleavened Bread (Lev. 23). This manifestation of Christ coming will be on the morning of the 1st day of the week that follows Passover that year.

The Wave Sheaf pictured the time when Jesus Christ would fulfill its meaning of being accepted as the first of the firstfruits of God’s great harvest—of those who are gleaned from the world to be in His Family—Elohim. Jesus Christ died on Passover and was laid in the tomb just before sunset on the 4th day of the week (Wednesday) in 31 A.D. After sunset, the weekly observance of the Feast of Unleavened Bread began. Then at the end of the 7th day (the weekly Sabbath) just before sunset, Jesus Christ was resurrected from the dead after being in the tomb for exactly three days and three nights.

Therefore, Christ was resurrected just before sundown on that weekly Sabbath. As soon as the sun went down, it became the 1st day of the week (Sunday). It wasn’t until the morning, Sunday morning, when the priests would offer up the Wave Sheaf, that Christ would then ascend to God. Christ then being received by God the Father would be the spiritual fulfillment of the Wave Sheaf. Later on that same day, after he had ascended and been received by God, he returned to be with his disciples and others for the next forty days.

Not only is this time for the Wave Sheaf offering about the beginning of God’s spiritual harvest, as it pictured Jesus Christ being the first of the firstfruits, but that day was also the beginning of a specific count that God commands so that people will know when the Holy Day of Pentecost should be observed. Pentecost is the day that the Wave Loaves were offered up and they picture the firstfruits (the 144,000) being offered up before God to be received by Him in the same manner that the Wave Sheaf was offered up before God for acceptance of Jesus Christ.

Paul described Jesus Christ as being the first of the firstfruits of God to be resurrected. In 1 Corinthians, a description is given of the order for all the firstfruits of God to be resurrected—all those who would be first to be resurrected into God’s Family—Elohim. Christ is described as the first to be resurrected and then the rest would be resurrected later at his coming.

“But everyone in their own order, Christ [of] the firstfruits, and afterward those [the rest, the 144,000 firstfruits] who are Christ’s at his coming” (1 Corinthians 15:23). Christ is described clearly as being resurrected first and then the rest of those firstfruits are resurrected at his coming.

Chapter 14 of the Book of Revelation begins by mentioning the 144,000 who will be resurrected to be with Christ at his coming and are described in the following manner: “These are they who follow the Lamb wherever he goes. These were redeemed from among mankind [over 6,000 years], and are the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb” (Rev. 14:4).

So Pentecost is the annual Holy Day that pictures the firstfruits of God—the 144,000—who are resurrected to spirit life in the first resurrection at Christ’s coming, and who then return with him to the Mount of Olives on that day, on Pentecost 2019.

The first five periods (of 1,260 days) that preceded 2012 had 70 days added that symbolized the coming of Christ. There are two more periods that have been added after 2012 that now make seven complete periods of 1,260 days since the Apostasy. These two new periods that followed 2012 have 50 more days that are added, and that symbolizes the coming of the firstfruits (the 144,000) with Christ. These all contain very great meaning concerning Christ’s coming to reign in the Kingdom of God for the next 1,100 years.

Yet there is even more meaning contained in this, as Pentecost reveals the command God gave for how to determine when that Holy Day should be observed. Pentecost literally means “count fifty.” It is that final 50 days that ties together, in an incredible manner, the great meaning of Jesus Christ as the first of the firstfruits, along with the rest of the firstfruits—the 144,000—who all come down to this earth on that final fiftieth day—Pentecost 2019.
