Finally, after 6,000 years of self-rule, God is revealing to mankind that it cannot successfully rule itself. Mankind’s way has only led to power struggles, divisiveness, domination, corruption, excessive taxation, economic hegemony, prejudicial governance, biased judiciaries, and horrifying wars. That is the true history of mankind!
It is toward the very end of this period of time, just before mankind would annihilate itself, that God is going to intervene and stop that self-destruction. Through the fast advancement of modern technology, mankind now has the ability to end all life on earth. Yet God will not allow it.
It is at this point that God will intervene to change the world from its own rule to that of His rule. Before that kind of change can happen, a change in the attitude and spirit of mankind must first take place. That is why the prophetic events of this end-time are designed to humble mankind so that people can begin to be taught the only way to real peace.
The title of this book, The Fall of the United States, emphasizes the moment when the world will be awakened to the start of another world war. This will be when the events of the first five Trumpets of Revelation are coming to pass. It is about the complete collapse of the wealthiest and most powerful nation the world has ever known.
Although the nations of the world bring about the cataclysmic events of a world war, for which they are fully responsible, there are yet other prophetic events that precede this obliterating war. Those events have already been happening for several years now and they will continue escalating right up to when this final war begins. After it begins, then these will intensify far more, right up to the end.
As with the Seven Seals and Seven Trumpets of Revelation, these events were also spoken of by John in the Book of Revelation, but he was told not to record what those events were. The reason for this is because it was to be given later in the end-time. These events are known as the Seven Thunders.
It has already been described how the Sixth Seal of Revelation was opened on 9/11. Additionally, that same day also marked the beginning of prophetic “thunder.” It was the very first rumbling of the First Thunder of Revelation.
There are Seven Thunders, and each Thunder will itself have multiple thunders—rumblings—that will occur throughout this entire period of time.
Thunder is the perfect analogy for describing the events of this prophetic period of a worldwide storm that has been brewing since 9/11 with ever-growing thunderous sounds and shakings. Often, as a great storm is approaching, thunder accompanies it and becomes louder the closer it gets.
Prophetic Thunders have been sounding for many years now, gaining in frequency and intensity. However, once this book has been published, those Thunders will become even more dramatic in power.
The prophet John heard the sound of Seven Thunders but was not allowed to write what he heard, therefore these were not recorded in the book of Revelation.
“Now when the seven thunders sounded, I was about to write, but then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, ‘Seal up the things which the seven thunders sounded, and do not write them.’ The angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land then raised up his hand toward heaven and gave oath in Him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it, that there should be time no longer [Gk.- “any further”]. But in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished [Gk.- “shall or should be completed, fulfilled, accomplished”], as He declared to His servants the prophets” (Revelation 10:4-7).
So as John was about to write what he heard, God told him that it was to be sealed up. That was accomplished by John simply not writing about it. This is exactly like what God told the prophet Daniel when he wanted to know what the prophecies that he had been given were all about. God told him that the words of the prophecy were to be closed up and sealed until the end-time.
The reason God spoke to John in this manner is that He had predetermined that John would have a counterpart whom He would give to proclaim these Thunders at the end-time—at the time when these would begin to become fulfilled. The specifics of the Seven Thunders were left for this end-time in order to be declared and revealed by God’s end-time prophet and apostle who would be John’s counterpart.
There are only two people whom God has used to fulfill the role of both a prophet and an apostle. Their role as prophets would be to declare explicit and chronological prophecies for the end-time. John was given to record those prophecies, but he did not know what they meant. God is using John’s counterpart to reveal fully what those prophecies mean. Both individuals were also given the role of apostles, as God revealed truth through them that was to become established in His Church.
These Thunders, that John had not been allowed to write about, first began to be declared in this end-time, back in 2006, in a book entitled 2008 – God’s Final Witness. Those Thunders had never been announced before that book. Everything else that John wrote concerning the Seven Seals, Seven Trumpets, and the Seven Last Plagues had been declared by an angel, but the Seven Thunders were not.
Indeed, a worldwide storm has been brewing, and the warning of that approaching storm has been contained in seven distinctive types of prophetic Thunder. However, the world has not known what to listen to in order to identify those Thunders. Nevertheless, these have still been sounding even though the world has been deaf to them.
For the very few who have been able to hear the thunder, it has served to help them become better prepared and alert to what is coming. These Thunders have been a prelude to the actual storm that is now almost here—a prelude to WWIII. Once that war begins, these Thunders will be magnified many times over, just like thunder continues once the storm arrives. Remember, the purpose of these Thunders is to amplify the ability to humble mankind.
Those Thunders that were first revealed in the book, 2008 – God’s Final Witness, will be repeated and updated here.
This thundering is like the analogy given of a pregnant woman with labor pain. All Seven Thunders will increase in intensity as this great end-time storm approaches, but one type of thunder will be more pronounced than another—from one great labor pain to another. Each type of Thunder will continue to rumble, but at certain times one will be much louder than all the others.
The First Thunder
September 11, 2001, was a day that thundered so loudly that the very mention of it is recognized all over this world. Mention that day anywhere on earth and people know what happened. However, people do not yet recognize the real meaning behind why this day is so vastly important.
What happened in New York, Washington D.C., and a field in Pennsylvania is not what is most important about this day. What happened on a Biblical plane is of far greater significance!
This date became etched in the minds of people throughout the world, and so did another word. The association to that date began to put the thought of terrorism into the minds of all who had 9/11 etched into their memory.
The greater reality for that day is its Biblical significance because it is prophetic in nature. The prophetic symbolism of these events is the very thing that will lead to the beginning fulfillment of the Seven Trumpets of Revelation and a full-blown World War III.
Terrorism and war are not new to mankind. This has been the way of man for thousands of years, but this terrorism is part of end-time prophecy, and this is what makes it different from all other acts of war.
#1: The First Thunder is the beginning terror of war for the end-time. This is war that is prophetic for the end-time.
Most of these Thunders contain things that have occurred on the earth in one way or another ever since man’s beginning. Terrorism is not new. Wars are not new. But what is happening now, in these Seven Thunders, is new because it is part of end-time prophecy. All these things will lead directly into the final period of great physical tribulation on all the earth with ever-increasing intensity.
The success of al-Qaeda’s terrorist attack on 9/11 was the beginning of the First Thunder. This was the very day the Sixth Seal of the Book of Revelation was opened. So the events of this day have very great Biblical and prophetic significance!
Terrorism is war, and war is terror. An American Civil War General, William T. Sherman, is recognized for a famous quote, in which he said, “War is hell.” Any way you address it, war reigns terror wherever it strikes.
Since 9/11, we have seen more rumblings from the “terror of war.” These rumblings have been continuous and striking with far greater power than that of 9/11. That is especially the case when simply looking at the kind of destruction and loss of life alone that has occurred since then that is in direct response to the events of that day. Look at what has happened since the description of these Thunders was first published.
The United States began bombing Afghanistan on October 7, 2001, in what was called Operation Enduring Freedom. However, in much of the world, this stirred up greater resentment and hatred toward Americans more than it produced any promotion of freedom.
The U.S. called an end to that war on August 30, 2021. The manner in which this was done caused even greater bitterness in the world toward the U.S. This even caused her allies to feel betrayed, which has, in turn, created far deeper distrust than ever.
So rather than freedom, this terror of war produced far greater death than 9/11. The Watson Institute of Brown University in its publication, Costs of War, states that U.S. troops killed in the fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan by the end of 2019 had reached over 7,000. Several hundred allied soldiers were also killed. Even more shockingly, the paper also concluded that as a result of psychological wounds, over 30,177 service members and veterans of the post-9/11 wars have committed suicide.
The total number of U.S. soldiers who died as a direct result of terrorism since 9/11 is more than 12 times as many who died on that day.
The paper further stated that approximately 177,000 national military and police allies from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, and Syria had died.
Under their “Summary of Findings,” this publication states that, in total, “At least 929,000 people have died due to direct war violence, including armed forces on all sides of the conflicts, contractors, civilians, journalists, and humanitarian workers. Many times more have died indirectly in these wars, due to ripple effects like malnutrition, damaged infrastructure, and environmental degradation.” In addition, “38 million people have been displaced by the post-9/11 wars in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, and the Philippines.” These are the direct effects of the terror of war in this end time!
These are only a few of all the conflicts in the world that have contributed to the terrors of war that have occurred since the First Thunder sounded on 9/11. The reality of this should have brought about a noticeable lessening of pride and haughtiness that exists in people and nations, but it has only humbled a very few so far.
The Second Thunder
There is another rumbling that has been increasing in intensity over the past couple of years. It is the direct result of a marked increase in destructive power being unleashed by the earth itself.
#2: The Second Thunder is the increasing destruction generated by earthquakes.
There have always been earthquakes and very destructive ones throughout the world, but this Thunder will become far more prominent before this end-time is over. A part of the destruction that comes from earthquakes also produces volcanic and tsunami activity.
One of the more pronounced events to follow 9/11 was the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake, known by the scientific community as the Sumatra-Andaman earthquake. According to the United States Geological Survey, the earthquake and its tsunami killed more than 283,100 people, making it one of the deadliest disasters in modern history.
The Third Thunder
In terms of an economic impact on property, and even loss of life, one of the most destructive forces that is taking a dramatic turn for the worse is being caused by an escalating change in our weather.
Some will argue that the current weather conditions reflect normal cycles of change over time. It is true that the weather follows cycles. Yes, there have always been times of intensity when destructive powers have been unleashed. However, now is different because the destructiveness and change in weather patterns is going to continue to increase dynamically, not following normal patterns.
Some regions will experience abnormally large amounts of rainfall, while others, that normally receive large amounts, will receive little to none. The consequences of this will be a marked increase in flooding and mudslides in some areas, while other areas will experience growing problems with drought, which as we have seen in recent years, results in widespread fires and extensive damage to property, homes, livestock, and crops.
Further, some regions will experience normal amounts of rain, but it will come at the wrong time to benefit agriculture. Too much cold and too much heat at the wrong time will also add to this destructive power. Those who have their livelihood in agriculture have always had to contend with such things, but these conditions will become worse.
#3: The Third Thunder is the growing destructiveness from weather.
The destruction from hurricanes, cyclones, tornadoes, excessive heat, cold, drought, flooding, and wind will only continue to escalate in magnitude of power and frequency.
Just in hurricanes alone, it is reported that twelve of the sixteen most devastating and costly storms to ever hit the United States have occurred since 2001.
From the publication Business Insider, dated September 10, 2018, there is an article entitled, “The 16 most destructive hurricanes in U.S. history,” with the top three most notable and costliest ones: 3rd—Hurricane Sandy 2012 at $71.4 billion, 2nd—Hurricane Katrina 2005 at $108 billion, and 1st—Hurricane Harvey 2017 at $125 billion.
Since 2001, there has been a large number of fatalities in this thundering, and the economic loss since then has been over $420 billion just from hurricanes alone, which also adds to the next Thunder.
The Fourth Thunder
Each one of the previous prophetic Thunders will have an impact on the Fourth Thunder. The result of nations fighting terrorism and engaging in war, along with the devastation caused by earthquakes and the increasing impact from destructive weather, will place a greater burden on a crushing global economy.
#4: The Fourth Thunder is global economic upheaval.
The world is entering into a time of final upheaval for the global economy. The stock market cannot continue its masquerade of being healthy and robust while being falsely propped up by a “positive spin” that is filled with false confidence, pseudo-exuberance, and creative forecasting. The day of reckoning is now on the world’s doorstep. Many deeply-felt pangs of panic will reverberate throughout the world as we draw nearer to a huge global crash.
Some nations are already indicating a shift from the dollar to the euro as a better assurance for future stability. Although many in the United States scoff at such a possibility, that is precisely what the trend will continue to be as confidence in the dollar continues to wane.
With corporate scandals and corruption on an alarming rise, along with a loss in confidence in a sick economy, the United States is drawing nearer to an economic implosion. Strong warning about this was given when these Thunders were first published in 2006 in a book entitled, 2008 – God’s Final Witness.
Later, in 2008, the world was confronted with the real state of the economy. However, God did not allow it to fully collapse at that time because other important prophetic events were not yet fully set in place for Him to allow such a global event to occur at that time.
Quantitative easing and other sleight of hand maneuvering have extended the inevitable. Yet unsound government interference and manipulation along with continued corporate and other financial market gimmickry has only worsened since 2008. The reality, in the long run, is that there will be no bouncing back from the cancerous greed that has nearly choked all life out of free-market capitalism.
Add to all these economic woes the problem of trade deficits, money manipulation, volatile oil markets, disastrous results of a worldwide pandemic, rampant inflation, a list of other global ailments; and you have a sure formula for global economic upheaval, the likes of which this world has never seen.
The world has experienced times of great economic upheaval, but it has always bounced back in one way or another. This time, there will be no bouncing back because the world will experience a complete economic meltdown to a level that not even the hoarding of gold and silver will solve. Indeed, the stability of the global economy is on very shaky ground.
The Fifth Thunder
The next three Thunders have a duality that includes both the Church of God and the world.
#5: The Fifth Thunder is death.
Death has always been part of mankind’s experience with temporary mortal life, and the first three Thunders obviously include a marked increase in death from an escalation in worldwide devastation. However, this Thunder is in addition to these and will occur in a specific manner.
In small part, the Fifth Thunder has already begun within the Church of God that was scattered after the Apostasy. The world will be fully unaware of the first phase of this Thunder because they do not know God’s Church. However, the Church that was scattered will become fully aware of its reality!
This Fifth Thunder is divided into three specific phases of death. (1) The first phase is death within the Church of God that was scattered. It will be specifically about a marked increase in the death of its leadership (the ministry). (2) The second phase will be a sudden escalation in the death of notable people in the world. (3) The third phase will be a sudden escalation of death in the world from plagues. Remember, these Thunders were first published in 2006.
(1) This first phase of this Fifth Thunder has already begun in a small way upon the Church of God that was scattered, after the prophesied apostasy. This phase of the Fifth Thunder is given as a strong chastening to those who have been scattered so that they might potentially be shaken from the deep spiritual sleep where they so proudly rest.
Sadly, spiritual arrogance and pride are so deeply entrenched in the hearts and minds of those who have been refusing to hear God’s warnings, that many will not be able to humble themselves enough to accept what God’s end-time prophet and apostle has been telling them. They will not acknowledge his words, which are from God to them, because they do not like the way they are being addressed or who it is that God is using. Instead, these individuals will stubbornly cling to their own ideas of how they believe God should teach them through their own organizations.
This specific phase of the Fifth Thunder is given in order to spiritually awaken those who will listen, who became scattered after the Apostasy. All who fail to accept what God is revealing will die in the final tribulation and be awakened to judgment at the end of the 1,000 years of God’s reign on earth. After God had delivered the Israelites out of Egypt, He prevented tens of thousands who had rebelled from entering the promised land. God can easily prevent a few thousand from the scattered Church from entering a new age that they have longed to see.
This Thunder has already been ongoing in these scattered groups for several years now, but they seem oblivious to it. In the book, 2008 – God’s Final Witness, when this Thunder was first revealed, there is more that is stated about this that is directed to the Church that became scattered. However, no one listened then, and perhaps no one will listen now, even though they have been given the opportunity to do so many times.
The sound of this Thunder soon will be intensified by the deaths in the leadership of the Philadelphia, Restored, Living, and the United church organizations, as well as several other prominent church organizations that became scattered.
(2) The second phase of death will be upon notable people in the world. It will begin small and increase in intensity as all the Thunders do. These notable people will include political leaders and well-known entertainment and sports figures, and it will include notable religious figures within the various religions of the world.
(3) The third phase of death will come from epidemics and pandemics in the world.
The worldwide death toll from COVID-19 has already surpassed 5.5 million people and such things will only increase.
Again, this same message was published in 2006.
These three phases are not about an order in which these will occur, but that there are three distinct phases of thunder that comprise this Fifth Thunder.
The Sixth Thunder
This Thunder also concerns both the Church and the world. The rumbling started with the publication of my first book, The Prophesied End-Time. Then, in 2006, with the second book, 2008 – God’s Final Witness, that Thunder became louder as it made known that I am John’s counterpart.
The larger portion of God’s Church that has remained scattered since the Apostasy has ridiculed such a possibility. They especially take delight in the fact that Christ did not return in 2012 as I began proclaiming in 2008. None of them have listened to why God did not allow Christ to return at that time and why his return was moved forward.
This alteration in the sequence of end-time events is used by many in the Church that had been scattered and by some in the world to be their evidence that I am a false prophet and not an apostle of God. Their greater “proof” that I am not who I say is in how I was convicted of income tax evasion and sentenced to three years in a federal prison camp.
People can be very quick to believe what they want. And so it is that very few have ever believed that I may be innocent. However, as events move closer to the start of WWIII, many of those same people are going to see more clearly how poorly mankind governs itself and that includes its judicial systems.
Many choose to believe in their judicial systems. They believe that judges are just, unbiased, and not political, but that is not true. Even prosecution is far more about winning than it is about justice. Thankfully, God is going to change every system of mankind’s government.
The growing manifestation of proof of God’s end-time prophet and apostle being the spokesman of His two end-time witnesses is a Thunder that will become powerfully stronger all the way up until the very return of Joshua the Christ.
#6: The Sixth Thunder is the growing revelation of God’s two end-time witnesses. It reveals that God’s current prophet and apostle to His Church is the spokesman of God’s two end-time prophets—the spokesman of His two end-time witnesses.
Indeed, the gradual revelation of who God’s two witnesses are before Christ’s return is what this Thunder is about. Part of that has already begun, but there is much more that is yet to be revealed that not even God’s own Church knows at this time. All that these two will fulfill and how they do so will become manifest by God’s own hand and in His timing.
It is right after John wrote about the Thunders that God spoke to him about these two witnesses.
“I [speaking of God] will give to my two witnesses that they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing on earth in the presence of God so that if anyone chooses to hurt them, fire proceeds out of their mouth and devours their enemies. So if anyone chooses to do them wrong, for doing so they will die. These have power to shut heaven, that it not rain in the days of their prophecy, and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with any blow, as often as they choose” (Revelation 11:3-6).
The matter of what was to be accomplished in the period of 1,260 days is believed to have already been fulfilled. The matter of being clothed in sackcloth is about a time of humility they were to endure. The fire that proceeds out of the mouth is symbolic of what is spoken and the consequences that follow. That which is stated in these verses will not become known to most until it is explained to them after Christ has returned.
This Sixth Thunder will grow louder as the events described in the previous Thunders continue to unfold with ever-increasing intensity, proving the validity of what has been written, and therefore, that such revelation could have only come from God.
The Seventh Thunder
This last Thunder, as with the previous two Thunders, concerns the Church and the world.
#7: The Seventh Thunder is the accelerated revelation of God to mankind.
This book has explained how mankind has never really known God and that there is great confusion and contradiction in religious beliefs concerning Him. It has also been shown that through the entire time of mankind on earth only a little more than 144,000 people have truly and deeply known God.
God has only revealed Himself to a very few throughout the past six millennia. Those few who did come to know God were rejected by the rest of mankind. The prophets and apostles were rejected, and because of that, mankind was not able to know God. God taught His ways to only one nation beginning in Moses’ time, but even most of that nation rejected His words.
The history of mankind (the true witness of mankind) is that it does not want God’s ways. People have not wanted God to govern their lives. So, in the past 6,000 years, God has called a very few into a special relationship with Him in order to be taught and trained for a future world-ruling government—the Kingdom of God.
Much of this has already been explained, but it needs to be understood that God is getting ready to do what He has never done before. God is getting ready to reveal Himself to the entirety of mankind. This revelation too is similar to thunder.
This Thunder has already begun to sound within God’s Church. It is about to sound powerfully throughout the world as the other Thunders grow louder. Then once the events of the Trumpets begin and all the remaining end-time events that God has prophesied unfold, this Thunder will become deafening.
God’s revelation to mankind will continue to accelerate as we draw closer to the end of man’s rule on earth and the coming of Joshua the Christ when God’s rule begins. Mankind has not known God, but all this is beginning to change.
Mankind Must Change
The world is about to begin experiencing the worst times of suffering and destruction it has ever known! God has warned mankind of this period known as the “end-time.” Actually, the vast majority of prophecy throughout the Bible is about the end-time. Because of mankind’s physically created existence and the human nature that this produces, God has always known what mankind would do through the ages. But that is exactly part of His plan.
In that plan, God allotted 6,000 years for mankind to choose its own ways to live life. Except for a very few whom God selected and worked with over the millennia, mankind, as a whole, has been blindly chasing after its own wants and desires. This has led to endless wars and destruction that have plagued our history.
Mankind’s horrible history is all part of a learning experience. We can learn from our mistakes, but mankind has not yet learned that it cannot govern itself. We have 6,000 years of proof that shows exactly what our own self-rule has been able to produce. God’s plan has always been to allow mankind to fail because there is no other way it can learn this greatest lesson in life.
Yes, God has allowed for failure, but not because He wants to see us fail. It is because, sadly, that is the only way we will finally begin to listen to Him—to begin to see that His way is vastly superior to that of our own and the only way that truly works.
God has a purpose—a plan—wherein He desires to give mankind life that extends beyond temporary mortal life to that of everlasting life. But with our track record, why would He? And what would the purpose be? So that there could be everlasting wars and suffering? Everlasting destruction? God’s way is about peace. Destruction, drama, and divisiveness are the way of selfishness—the way of Satan, and that has been the way of mankind.
Mankind’s way is that of selfishness and that is why our self-rule has never worked.
So in order for God to fulfill His plan for mankind, He has to have willing participants. The problem is that mankind, at this point in time, is still in denial of its destructive ways. On the contrary, mankind is filled with pride.
Today this prideful attitude is worse than ever before. That is in large part due to advances in science, physics, and mathematics that the world has seen develop over the past century. Never before in the history of mankind have we seen so much progress that has in so many ways benefited mankind.
Consider the evidence that can easily be seen in world population figures. It is estimated that from 1500 to 1800, the world population grew from nearly 600 million to just under 1 billion. However, today there are now approximately 8 billion people living on earth! It took 5,800 years to reach 1 billion people and only 200 years to reach 8 billion.
Although mankind has benefited from such advancements, it has also misused these to a point that now reveals the potential for such destruction on earth, which could lead to extinction.
God is the one who has allowed the population to grow by such leaps and bounds. He is the one who gave mankind the knowledge to be able to make such advances. Yet mankind has taken full credit to itself which reflects the depth of its distorted pride.
It should be clear by now that mankind, when left to its own self-rule, will always cause destruction. It is inevitable.
So God is going to allow mankind to come face to face with its own self-annihilation. The truth is that the only way to stop this self-destructiveness is for God to intervene and stop mankind from governing itself by instead establishing His own government—His own Kingdom to reign.
That is why mankind must first be humbled in order to achieve a genuine willingness to begin to truly listen to God, exactly in the manner that God directs. Indeed, a change must begin to take place within mankind, and there is only one way for that change to begin to take effect.
Mankind is so deeply entrenched in its own ways, so deeply filled with human pride, that it will not accept what is actually from God. People who see themselves as being religious or Christian do not see themselves in this manner. Yet it would be good to consider what God says about our very nature.
God states that “there is a way that seems right to a person, but the ends thereof are the ways of death” (Proverbs 14:12). This states well the attitude and spirit of mankind. It is just natural within the mind to believe that one’s own ideas, thoughts, and judgments are right. We tend to simply think that we are right and that others who think differently are wrong. This is a basic result of human pride, for only God can tell us what is truly right and what is wrong.
As a simple example, consider all the thousands of divisions in different denominations, and non-denominational churches in traditional Christianity. Those who support and belong to a specific one have a belief that they are right, and they generally believe others are wrong (or less knowledgeable and less truthful) in matters concerning doctrine and teaching about God and Christ.
Yet God declares that there is only one faith, one truth, one church, and one way of life to be lived. The problem is that mankind is filled with pride—with belief that it is right, justified, and/or more insightful than others.
God further states that “the carnal mind is enmity [opposed to, an enemy] against God, for it is not subject to the law of God and neither indeed can be” (Romans 8:7). Mankind resists laws that are contrary to what it actually wants. This includes resisting the laws and ways of God.
It is because of such thinking that mankind has not listened to the prophets and apostles of God throughout the past 6,000 years. We now live in a time where God is going to address this. God is not going to allow this to continue any longer!
That is why this was alluded to at the beginning of this chapter. A paragraph needs to be repeated here that was addressing the moment in time when God will intervene to establish His government over mankind.
“It is at this point that God will intervene to change the world from its own rule to that of His rule. Before that kind of change can happen, a change in the attitude and spirit of mankind must first take place. That is why the prophetic events of this end-time are designed to humble mankind so that people can begin to be taught the only way to real peace.”
There is absolutely no other meaningful and lasting way to begin to bring about a complete change in the attitude and spirit of mankind except for God to allow for end-time events to happen in the exact manner they are said to be fulfilled.
The prophetic events revealed in the Seven Seals, the Seven Trumpets, the Seven Thunders, and Seven Last Plagues are all designed to help people make this change—a change from pride, with reliance upon self, to that of humility and looking to God to lead them. All this is necessary so that mankind can begin to learn the only true ways that produce real peace and lead to everlasting life—life that will be filled with real and lasting happiness, fulfillment, love, and true peace forever.
